Healing Power of the Mind-Body Connection in Chronic Illness

In a guest post from my wonderful mother, she shares her journey with chronic illness, autoimmune disease, and the relationship that stress has played in her health for her entire life.

It was only until she discovered and cultivated a meditation practice was she able to take control of her anxiety and fear, and successfully manage her stress - and in turn successfully manage her health.

The mind-body connection is a powerful thing, and it’s truly quite amazing that we have been given the ability to control our thoughts, emotions, and ultimately our health!

Tips for Eating Out With Celiac Disease (or Any Food Intolerances)

Eating out with Celiac Disease, any Autoimmune condition, or food intolerance can be a daunting and scary task.

Whenever you eat out, you’re trusting your health and wellbeing to the restaurant staff - who most of the time, doesn’t have your best interest in mind when preparing your food.

Since I’ve needed to switch to a 100% gluten free diet, I’ve been able to come up with some tried and true techniques to feeling as comfortable as I can while dining out.

I’ve used these tips to successfully eat gluten free at many restaurants for years, and now I want to share them with you!

My Health Journey

My health journey starts with a diagnosis of Celiac Disease, and continues today with issues like SIBO, leaky gut, dysbiosis, adrenal fatigue, liver toxicity, and overgrowths of pathogenic bacteria.

But, I’ve come such a long way, and have learned so much in the process. My gut is well on its way to healing and being the gut it used to be.
