When we are sick, healing your body using nutrition is a very overlooked option. Chances are, if you are going gluten-free, damage has been done to your body. When our bodies are damaged inside, we need to help them heal. There is no better way to help them than with food.

This is not medical advice. I am not a doctor; I’m a holistic nutrition coach. When I talk about healing using nutrition, I’m going to talk about a lot of common everyday things, and this is not to be replaced with advice that you get from a doctor.

What Are You Healing From?

In today’s society, being stressed is glorified. Think about it: how often do you hear: “I only slept three hours last night because I did this, this, this, this, and this. I got up early, I worked out, I did this, and I’m good to go!”

When the body is stressed, we overlook what might be happening on the inside.

The following are signs that the body needs to heal:

  • Low energy
  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Indigestion
  • Tummy issues
  • Anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Arthritis

The USA is sicker than ever, which doesn’t factor in the pandemic. We don’t know how to heal our bodies, so we use bandaids.

For indigestion, take a tums. When things hurt first thing in the morning, pop a Motrin. Guess what! It doesn’t have to be that way; instead of putting a bandaid on the symptom, it’s time to get to the root of the problem.

How Do You Heal Your Body Using Nutrition?

Believe it or not, healing can be done using the Best Self Method. Research, adjust, and heal.

Can you heal completely? Yes.
Is it easy? No.

Two weeks ago, the research phase was the podcast topic. Listen to learn everything you need to know about your body to help it heal.

Last week, the adjustment phase was the podcast topic. The episode was about adjusting your body and what to do when you get stuck.

Then, the healing phase comes in.

We notice changes in the healing phase.

  • Our energy comes back.
  • Acne clears up.
  • Getting out of bed is easier without pain.

Suddenly, things we didn’t think were possible anymore are happening. Yes, healing your body using nutrition is possible.

Having that knowledge about your body and what’s possible will make it easier in the long run to help your symptoms.

The healing process is not an overnight and most likely not a one-time thing. There will be times when you eat food again that your body doesn’t like, but knowing how to heal will put you back on track so much faster the next time around.

Is It Worth The Effort?

Are you living day to day with health problems that could easily be prevented by making extra effort to pay more attention to your food, plan your meals, and get a handle on things?

Is it easy? No.
Do you need accountability? Yes.
Is it worth it? 100,000%
