Happy New Decade!
Post-holidays, we may find ourselves couch surfing with a bloated belly and lethargy. Food hangovers are not the best way to start the new year. We want to feel light and energized to reach our goals!
What causes bloated belly and lethargy?
For some people, even just a small quantity of sugary, spicy, caffeinated, or processed foods will upset their digestion. Or perhaps you are one of those who chose “healthy” options, but simply ate too much, leaving the belly in a distended malaise.
Our bowels are filled with microbes (some good some not so good). They are sensitive to every forkful. Are they having a party that’s throwing you off balance?
4 steps for a health reset. Let’s make 2020 the best year yet!
- Visit a skilled colon hydrotherapist – your gut will thank you! Warm sterile filtered water is used to gently flush out any material that has built up in the large intestine (colon). This helps your body release waste matter, toxins, and trapped gasses. The hydrotherapist will provide you with important nutrition and digestive information.
- Get active. Have fun with jumping jacks in the morning, march in place during TV commercial breaks, calf raises when brushing your teeth, etc.
- Eat mindfully. Let’s chew slowly and place the fork down between bites. Undigested pieces of food do not belong in our feces. Let’s appreciate the colours and smells of our food, and fill our plate with high quality veggies.
- Check-in with one of our naturopathic doctors or other health provider.
I wish you the happiest and healthiest of 2020, and look forward to your digestive success story!
To your happier healthier colon,
Mary Ann Sorokan, Specialized Colon Hydrotherapist
