Gut health…. the foundation to wellness

You think you are doing everything right….

staying well hydrated

maintaining a healthy ph

eating healthy

getting regular exercise

enjoying adequate restorative sleep

avoiding toxins

but you still struggle with wellness….Your gut may be compromised.

Have you been exposed to toxins, on antibiotics, had a virus, been on a highly processed diet, experienced extreme stress? these are just a few of the things that may lead to an unhealthy gut, and, a unhealthy gut means compromised nutrition and immunity. Without proper nutrition and immunity you can not enjoy an optimum level of wellness.

Make certain you are building wellness on a solid foundation…. a healthy gut.

Hello world!

I have been on a journey to create wellness in my own life, and, the lives of those closest to me, as well as, my clients in various health care settings for over 20 years.

I am creating this blog to share some of the information I have found to be helpful on that journey. Think of me as a resource for tools to use in a proactive approach to creating wellness.

First let me say that while in general the components to wellness are the same for everyone,  what specifically works for one person may not work for another. Creating wellness is like a recipe; every individual has to find his/her own recipe for wellness. For some, that is a relatively simple process; for others, more complex. If you struggle with wellness, I encourage you to examine what is in your recipe; what do you need to eliminate? what do you need to add? Some ingredients may need to work together to get the desired outcome; if you have one without the other you will not get the desired outcome. Make certain to give “ingredients” time to work; whether it is exercise, diet (including supplements), or other lifestyle changes it is not an instant fix; think about it as if you took a wrong turn and you have to get back on the right route to get to your destination (wellness.)

There are some basic ingredients that are essential to wellness; a healthy diet, a wholesome environment, adequate physical activity, a support network…

I plan to expand on these ideas in future post….so check back and feel free to leave comments 🙂
