Many people often assume weight loss can be achieved by eating less, exercising more, and willpower.

Turns out- weight management is much more complicated than this simple and outdated energy equation.

The stress response has a huge impact on our overall energy state. Stress hormones can negatively impact gut function, negatively impact blood sugar regulation, and stimulate emotional needs and desires that often are satisfied with sweet and salty snacks.
 
I learned from observation my GI issues came about during times of stress and exaggerated stress response. Now my observations are backed with scientific studies! 
 
Your stress response can damage the gut lining and break apart tight junction proteins leading to leaky gut OR increased intestinal permeability.
 
When there is leaky gut, there is a cascade of inflammation and altered serotonin metabolism meaning your emotional balance and ability to cope with stress also become dampened. 
 
Its a negative feedback loop that is self perpetuating. People too often forget that they have control over their bodies in this way. Through neuroplasticity and careful attention, we can reshape our experience and guide ourselves back to homeostasis. Once stress hormones cease to be produced- balance is restored, and your gut microbiome and gut lining will begin working FOR you again.


We reset stress through a process that builds and deepens our body intuition. Thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are the building blocks of our experiences that make up our world view taken in by our senses (sight, touch, smell, auditory, and taste)!Beliefs create our experiences, and experiences reinforce our beliefs. So, the best path to resetting stress is re-wiring our thought and feelings because those imprint into the action habits that keep us in a perpetual state of discomfort, stress, and pain.Getting to know your brain’s sensory preferences aligns with the feel-good sensations that help close the gap between reaching your health goals quicker and building resilience to stress.
