Timeline PhotosYour digestive system may be making you fat! Inflammation is one of the biggest drivers of weight gain and disease. Imbalances in the bacterial ecosystem of your intestines as well as food sensitivities are the main contributors to this inflammation. Inflammation leads to weight gain which makes us even more inflamed only perpetuating the cycle.
___
Looking at the research supporting this, a study done looking at two groups of children (one group overweight and the second normal weight). The group of overweight children had a three times higher level of C-reactive protein (a marker of general inflammation in the body) and a two times higher level of IgG antibodies to foods (aka food sensitivities) than the normal weight children! This suggests that food allergies are a cause of inflammation and obesity and not a consequence!

If you are interested in addressing possible food sensitivities or learning more, I am here to help! I will also have a few more posts this week with more info!

Microblading with Felicity - first session
Book your free consultation today!!
902-883-8668

Unlike an eyebrow pencil that you wipe off at night before you go to sleep, eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo procedure during which a special handheld microblading eyebrow pen is used to draw on strokes that mimic the appearance of real brow hairs. While it's a similar process to getting a tattoo, the ink that is used is far less concentrated than that of a regular tattoo and is specifically formulated for the microblading process.

___
Did you know that estrogen is moved out of your body through your bowels!?
You need to have a healthy functioning gut in order to remove excess estrogen and other waste from the body. This includes the estrogen your body makes on its own as well as the synthetic estrogen that you consume through that daily dose of birth control. Birth control disrupts the normal flora of your digestive system and can promote overgrowth of bad bacteria and yeast.
___
When your gut isn’t working properly and efficiently that estrogen goes back into circulation and can lead to symptoms like bloating, cramping, heavy periods, and irritability. (AKA Estrogen Dominance). So bottom line, you need to poop every day in order to remove the estrogen your body doesn’t need.
___
Lack of diverse gut flora and hormone imbalance lead to weight gain or inability to lose weight as well as affecting your ability to absorb nutrients from our food!
___
Getting your gut healthy can have huge advantages to your health and this includes hormone balancing! I’m here to help!
