Did you know that our bellies are our second brains?

What happens in our gut isn’t just about food, it’s about “gut feelings.”

We get a lot of wisdom from our core, but many of us pay little attention to ensuring things are running smoothly there.

If you’re often gassy, constipated, dealing with diarrhea, or any combo of those things, one simple suggestion I would make is to consider the temperature of the beverages you drink and the food you eat.

Do you often guzzle ice cold water right before a meal? If so, you may be washing away those über helpful digestive juices that get churning before you chow down and drastically lowering the temperature of your intestines, making it significantly harder for them to do their job. Our bellies need to be warmed up before meals just like our bodies do before work outs. If they get doused with cold liquids right as they’re getting geared up to do their work, though, your ecosystem doesn’t run as smoothly. Even something seemingly small like this can add a lot of stress to the body over time.

So make it easy on yourself! Small changes like this can make a big difference over time.  No need to change it ALL all today.  Start here, and let me know how it goes for you 🙂
