When you’re working on reestablishing healthy gut bacteria, cravings often kick in like inner monsters. It’s because you’re depriving your bad bacteria of the stuff they love to feast on:
sugar and refined carbohydrates.
This is an essential part of the process when it comes to rebuilding gut health, but it helps to have plenty of resources to lean on and access to support.

I suffered for years from fatigue, anxiety, depression, hormone issues, digestive issues and just overall not feeling like I felt I should. I thought maybe it was just because I was a mom and my kids had sucked the life out of me. My doctor told me I was just getting older.
I couldn’t accept that this was how I would feel everyday, I wanted to enjoy time with my kids, not dread them asking me to play with them.
Fast forward through many health struggles and now I finally feel like I am in control of my health.
It has been a long journey to get to where I am now but what I have learned is that the basic principles of health, are some of the most important pieces of where I am today. Understanding what your body needs to function at it’s best is one of the most powerful tools, it’s not some fancy, expensive gadget or supplement. It’s the basics that are important! Diet and Lifestyle can make a huge impact on your health and well being.
My mission is to teach other moms how to take back their health, energy and mood naturally. Empowering them to take charge of their own health and well being, as well as raise healthy, happy kids.
