What do you do when you’re feeling a little “blah”? When you wake up tired, moody, and agitated—and just can’t shake off that funk? For me, I know a bad mood means it’s time to slow down, reset, and give my body and mind a little extra TLC.
When we think about eating well, we often think about what we should eat to nourish our bodies, get enough energy, protect our hearts, manage our weight…and that’s all super important! But, did you know food also has a really big impact on our brain health and function, including our mental wellbeing?
Did you know one in four women experiences some form of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)? One in four! It’s one of the most common reproductive health issues, but there’s still some confusion surrounding it (what is PCOS exactly?) and, often, women diagnosed with the condition aren’t given many solutions.
Acid reflux, resulting in heartburn, is incredibly common these days. In fact, as many as 60 million Americans experience heartburn at least once a month. So if you’re no stranger to some mad, fiery reflux—you are not alone! And, the great news is, there are ways to prevent and treat heartburn that have nothing to do with medications like PPIs or our old friend Pepto.
While autoimmune diseases are common these days, they’re also commonly misunderstood. Their symptoms can sometimes masquerade as other conditions, making them harder to diagnose. And while treating autoimmunity with immune-suppressing drugs is sometimes helpful and necessary, often these treatments merely address the symptoms, not the root cause of autoimmunity. Because the truth is, autoimmunity can be managed and even reversed (yes!) by using nutrition and other lifestyle changes.
