With a 1 ½-year-old and a watermelon on the way, I’m taking my health seriously!
I love being a Mother! I was made for this! I wouldn’t trade it for anything on earth! .
My body, on the other hand, has some choice words for me! .
I may look bright and full of energy in this photo, but what’s going on on the inside is another story!
Felt this way? I am sure many of you can relate. .
As women, mothers, carriers of new developing life our body goes through incredible stress. Sometimes this stress can lead to many health problems. Even if we think we are doing the right things by being active and eating healthy. There are things we can’t always control or avoid as a Mother like crazy busy days of caring for littles, housework, and work, sleepless nights, being a milking cow for our babes, etc… All of these things cause stress on our body.
I’m here to tell you that even though I am health conscious, eat fairly clean, and move my body daily I’m still struggling with many health problems today. Most of which stem from stress. Which sound weird because I would consider myself “stressed out”, but it’s all those things I mentioned above causing physical stress on my body even if I don’t feel mentally stressed. Get it? .
So, here I am with a 1 ½-year-old and one watermelon on the way, and I’ve got…
Low stomach acid.
Some of the symptoms I’m having is impaired digestion, upset stomach, bloating, fatigue, hormonal imbalances, candida overgrowth, inflammation, brain fog, nutritional deficiencies.
How many of us have these symptoms and just push it off as our new normal, and blame Motherhood? It’s common to have these issues, but not normal!
I am currently learning so much through my Certified Nutritional Therapy studies, and I am working with a good friend and NTP @meg_langston to correct as much of this as possible before baby comes!
I highly encourage everyone, not just mommas, to look into getting to the root cause of any symptoms you may be experiencing! I’m excited to work 1:1 with each you in the near future, but for now, follow along my journey and learn as much as you can from what I share, and reach out to Meg!
