There are trillions of bacteria in your gut (1) and they are busy either keeping your hormones in balance or helping your hormones fail you. What is happening in your gut?
Our guest this week is Jen Broyles, a health coach specializing in digestive health. In this show we will talk about gut health and how to heal a damaged gut.
Jen Broyles struggled with digestive problems including IBS for 10 years, and after seeing many doctors and doing numerous tests without getting answers decided to leave pharmaceutical sales and go into school to study nutrition.
She talks about among other things how to eat better and take care of gut health, the benefits of listening to your body and giving your gut a break by cutting out some of the foods you've been eating.
Jen Broyles also talks about the different diet protocols designed for gut health and gut healing and finding the right one for you.
She also gives her recommendations on some books on the SCD and GAPS diets, types of self care activities to engage in, recommendations on essential oils for digestive support and supplements to take to aid in digestion.
We put all this together in a handy sheet for you. You can get a copy by using the button below:

A Little Story about Healthy Babies...
When I was practicing acupuncture more, I saw a lot of ladies at the end of their pregnancy, who wanted support in preparing for labor. These ladies were brand new to me, and I'd always ask what supplements they were taking, and what foods they were eating.
I would often cringe to hear that they weren't consuming probiotics, and recommend that these moms-to-be consume probiotics foods and supplements. We know now that baby is exposed to bacteria from the birth canal/anus or the bacteria floating around in the surgery room, if C section delivery (link).
But also the bacterial environment of the mother affects baby's health in utero (link). Taking it a step further, your microbiome health will affect your ability to conceive and carry to term.
Even if you never plan to have kids, our microbiome supports so much of hormone regulation, it's important to every woman.
So what can you do to honor your microbiome, and your baby's microbiome?
You can consume kombucha, raw sauerkraut or kimchi, or coconut yogurt. You can eat a wide variety of vegetables to provide pre-biotic food to your microbiome. You can avoid foods that can irritate your gut such as processed grain, caffeine and sugar. You can take a high-quality, broad-spectrum probiotic. (Tip: the shelf stable ones are sometimes better than the dairy-based refridgerated ones.)
You can also attend this week's free Microbiome Summit, with over 30 free, expert interviews about our microbiome.
I don't attend every summit out there, but I'm very curious about this area that we are just starting to grasp. Very exciting stuff!
I want women to really get the importance of this area, and how we can nourish it, for our sake, and the sake of our healthy babies. Join the free Microbiome Summit here.
Hugs and Health, Bridgit
In this interview with functional medicine expert Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, we talk about the rarely acknowledged gut-brain connection. With modern research, we are gaining a deeper understanding of how digestion and the gut micro-biome effects the brain, and common symptoms of mood disorder, and poor concentration.
I'm happy to share with you today a great video on an important topic, making bone broth. Bone broth is easy to make once you get the hang of it, and it's super nutritious. It can heal a leaky gut, regenerate your joints, help you sleep, and help your hormonal system tick along nicely. Just click on the image above to view. It's about 10 minutes long, and well worth it!..
