What does it mean to heal your body through the food on your plate?

Over the last 3 weeks we’ve talked about my Best Self Method: Research, Adjust, Heal.

This is not medical advice. I am not a doctor, I’m a holistic nutrition coach. When I talk about healing, 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 We Healing From?

In our society today, we glorify being stressed. 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 we’re stressed, it’s really easy to miss little things going on in our lives and the things with our bodies that we’ve just come to accept as normal.

How often do you find yourself accepting the following as normal?

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

We’re sicker than ever, not factoring in the pandemic, as a society we’re obese, overweight. We reach for band aids all the time.

Think about it, you have indigestion, you grab a Tums… you get out of bed and everything hurts, grab a Motrin. Here’s the thing… it doesn’t have to be that way, You’re putting a bandaid on the problem instead of getting to the root cause to find a solution.

While not everything in this world can be fixed with food, a lot of what we just talked about can be.

How Do You Heal With Food?

Believe it or not, it can all be done using my Best Self Method, which is research, adjust and heal.

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

Two weeks ago, we talked about the research phase… everything you need to learn about your body in order to help it heal.

Last week, we talked about the adjustment phase… how to get started making adjustments to your body and what to do when you get stuck.

Making those adjustments then brings you to the healing phase.

In the healing phase, we start to notice our body getting that energy back, we start to notice that acne clearing up, it’s easier to get out of bed in the morning without pain. All of the sudden we start to notice things we didn’t think were possible anymore.

Yes, you can heal that using the food on your plate.

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

The healing process is not an overnight process and most likely isn’t 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?

We’re sicker than ever and there’s nothing more that I want to see than people heal by taking control of their health to become the best version of themselves. Hence why my coaching business is called Beat Your Best Self Coaching, I want to see the best version of you.

I don’t care if it means losing 20 pounds or if it means keeping your weight the same and just getting your symptoms in order.

Out of curiosity, did any of this kind of stick out to you? What struck you that you thought was normal that’s not?

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

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