How To Cure IBS For Good

HOW TO CURE IBS FOR GOOD

SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

First things first, you need to understand that IBS is a pretty crappy diagnosis, I mean, it literally stands for irritable bowel syndrome. And I dunno about you, but I want to know WHY on earth my bowel is irritated!

Understanding what is actually happening underneath the surface level diagnosis that is ‘IBS’, or what I like to call, the IBS Iceberg can be hard and is often why the ‘solution’ is to just follow a low FODMAP diet (and that’s it).

As a holistic + clinical nutritionist this is not a long-term ‘solution’ that I am happy to put my clients on. In fact, it isn’t really a solution at all.

Yes low FODMAPs can be super helpful, but it is even in the research that this isn’t a long-term fix. It might reduce the symptoms, but again we want to get to the root of the cause and in my expert opinion and first hand experience, I can tell you that it is normally one of these three things that lie below the surface of the IBS Iceberg:

3 ROOT CAUSES OF IBS

1. Leaky Gut 

Leaky gut is another way of saying your intestine (gut) is permeable (has ‘gaps’) in it. This allows for particles of food and other toxins to seep through into your bloodstream (where it isn’t meant to be). 

So the body freaks out, thinks there is an invader present and puts the entire system in a state of inflammation… hello food intolerances and irregular bowel movements.

These symptoms sound familiar?

2. SIBO

Short for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, now you may be wondering what on earth that means, especially because we are meant to have bacteria in our gut right?

YES!

But not in our small intestine… You see, that is where all the absorption and digestion goes on, so the majority of our bacteria should be living in our large intestine. When it grows up searching for food and starts to overpopulate in the small intestine we start to see issues like chronic bloating, diarrhoea, smelly gas, burping and fatigue to name a few!

Not fun right, and can be kind of embarrassing at times

3. Dysbiosis 

Now dysbiosis simply put, means there is an imbalance of good bacteria to bad bacteria in the gut. We are always going to have some bad guys, but the ratio needs to be heavily in favour of the good ones!

Often clients come to me concerned that there is something living in their gut that shouldn’t be, and whilst this is true for some cases, the bigger issue is actually the lack of good gut bacteria.

If we don’t have enough good guys, we reduce our defence in fighting off the bad guys! And then we have a bunch of space for the bad guys to invade.

I think you’d agree, we really don’t want a hostile situation in our guts! So this balance needs to be restored!

HEAL TO HEAL IBS FOR GOOD

These are the three main issues I see underneath the IBS ice-berg!

Which is why the diagnosis IBS is not really supporting you in having a healthy gut right! We really have to support the good bacteria that are living inside of us!

The great news is, that it doesn’t have to take extensive testing and supplementation to reset your gut health and start to really nourish those beautiful bugs that help us thrive!

The key thing to understand when it comes to healing your gut (or curing IBS for good), is that it isn’t a short-term solution. You are going to need to make changes to your diet and lifestyle, and some of those shifts may need to become more permanent to keep you healthy, others will only need to be around temporarily whilst the healing occurs.

What you need to give yourself is time, on average it takes at least 12 weeks for the gut to do the deeper healing work, but you don’t have to wait that long to see results!

One of my clients saw a reduction in bloating after 4 days, another got her energy back and anxiety reduced in just 4 weeks!

These are women just like you who didn’t accept a BS diagnosis, and wanted real change and answers about their body and health! And I truly feel confident that when you apply what you learn inside the 4 Week Gut Reset, you can have the same results!

Sound good? Click here to save your spot! I cannot wait to support you!

What It Truly Takes To Heal Your Body

WHAT IT TRULY TAKES TO HEAL YOUR BODY ❤️ (WHAT MOST HEALTH COACHES AREN’T TELLING YOU!) 🤯

13 / APRIL / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

If you’re confused on how to get started on your gut or hormone healing journey this one’s for you! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

I have so many clients come to me, that have been lost 😔, misguided and confused about why nothing they have tried works for the long-term… so I’m here to drop some TRUTH bombs for you! 🤩

Because YOU deserve to know how to get the most out of your efforts! 🎉

5 TIPS TO TRULY HEAL YOUR BODY

1️⃣ Trust the Process

That includes yourself, your body is a reflection of the mind 🧠, and if you continue to fill it with self-doubt, it’s a constant negative stress which interrupts the healing process! 

Know that unlike what may be conveyed on social media nowadays, it doesn’t just happen overnight, but it also doesn’t have to take forever or be super hard! It really just takes you showing up every day with the belief that you can do it and if needed the guidance and support of a coach to help you see your blindspots!

2️⃣ Prioritise Consistency > Fancy Supplements

Sure there are incredible supplements 💊that SUPPORT your healing, but if you’re still getting minimal sleep 😴 , putting sh*t food into your body, and not prioritising exercise and rest CONSISTENTLY… NOTHING is going to change! 

You’ve probably heard the ‘80:20’ principle a lot, and to be honest, I am not the biggest fan of it, but I will share this… if you are being 80% consistent on putting the right habits in place and healthy foods into your body, and exercising 3 - 5 times a week in a way that challenges you, you’re going to be 80% better than when you started which is pretty damn good!

3️⃣ Your Comfort Zone is Killing You 

Everything you desire is on the other side of your fear! 🙌🏽 Nothing changes if nothing changes, doing the same thing and expecting different results is literally the definition of insanity! 🤯 Get OUT of your comfort zone and invest in your health 🤩

But what does this really look like? Maybe it is trying a new meal, asking for more support, putting extra weight on the barbell at the gym, taking more time out for you. If it is a little bit scary but also a little bit exciting you are in exactly the right place for change! 

4️⃣ You’re Not Addressing the Root Cause

Have fun repeating the same diet a million times over 🤦🏼‍♀️ or trying all the new products on the market, these will NOT 🙅🏼‍♀️ solve your issue. If you truly want to HEAL the body, you have to UNDERSTAND what is driving it on the inside! 

A lot of the time we think if we simply eat right and exercise the results will happen (and yes… they sure do help!), but if there is a hormonal imbalance, a gut issue, you adrenals are stressed or your body is chronically inflamed, it is going to hold back your results and progress! This is why getting to the root cause is so important! 

If you aren’t sure where to start with this, take my free quiz here!

5️⃣ Exercise isn’t the be all and end all 

Endless hours of cardio 🏃🏼‍♀️, training and HIIT are doing more damage than good. Finding an exercise regime that is BALANCED ⚖️ and right for your body is key for your healing and health!

If there is one thing I tell all my female clients, no matter what age you are… get into strength training, it boosts your metabolism, is great for your physical and mental health and you will start seeing results in your body as it is pushing you outside your comfort zone and forcing your body to change shape! 

Try swapping out the cardio for some weights a couple times a week, balance it with something new and most of all have FUN! If you aren’t enjoying it you won’t stick to it. Don’t exercise out of punishment, exercise to push you to your limits, get stronger and because you are worth it!

FINAL THOUGHTS

I hope this has opened your eyes to some new things to try on, share with me below, what’s the area you are going to start working on now?

Yours in Health,

5 Things To Prioritise For Optimal Health

SHEREE'S PYRAMID OF PRIORITIES - 5 PRIORITIES TO OPTIMISE YOUR HEALTH

16 / MARCH / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

I get asked all the time… How do I lose weight? How do I balance my hormones? How do I heal my gut? Honestly, it all starts HERE, with the 5 priorities I am about to share with you! This is your foundation to health… 

TOP 5 PRIORITIES

1. STRESS + SLEEP: 

Do not underestimate the impact stress has on your body, this can be food stress, emotional stress, physical stress, mental stress you name it. It triggers inflammation, can negatively impact your gut health and throw your hormones out of whack if you’re constantly producing tonnes of your stress hormone cortisol! 

Stress also has a massive impact on our sleep, which as you will know from experience, a poor night's sleep throws you off for the entire day, if not the entire week! Sleep is where we rest, repair, create long-term memories, and recover, in fact it is arguably THE most important thing we should be doing for our health as humans.

YET, we tend to be completely okay sacrificing it time and time again for more things that are creating stress in our life. A lack of sleep not only tells your body to store more fat, but also encourages you to overeat (and not the good stuff), you typically reach for quick fixes of energy - like sugar and caffeine! 

You have to be managing your stress and getting enough sleep, this is a NON-NEGOTIABLE for achieving your goals… focus on having set boundaries around your work hours, and getting 7 - 9 hours sleep EVERY single night!

2. SIMPLE WHOLE FOODS:

Forget diets, eat REAL food, you know, the stuff without an ingredients list (or a minimal one), your body knows what to do with it! Yup… if you can’t pronounce the ingredient, chances are your body doesn’t know how to use it and it provides no nutritional value.

In fact, REAL foods like your meat, poultry, fish, fruits and veggies do not even come with an ingredients list. These are the kinds of foods your diet should be rich in. When you look at your plate, you should be asking yourself, is that enough protein? Is that enough greens? What NUTRIENTS am I getting! 

Then once you know your nutrient intake is great, you can weave in things that are sometimes foods if you want to. It is about balance, but whole real foods should make up at least 80% of your diet.

3. SUPPORT + SELF-CARE:

Don’t expect yourself to know how to do everything or to do everything for everyone else. Self-care and support go hand in hand. This can literally look like asking for more help from the people around you…

Remember, how easily you say yes to everyone and want to support, well others love to help too. It is OKAY to ask for help and it is okay to receive it too! Sharing the load makes for a much happier environment and YOU! Also, make it a non-negotiable to have at least 5 minutes of YOU time daily and an hour a week if you can, doing something you love!

If you want to take your health to the next level, and aren’t sure to start, it is worth investing in yourself. I cannot tell you how much my health has been fast tracked through having the support and guidance from coaches.

4. STRENGTH TRAINING:

Ladies… LIFT! If you want to boost your metabolism, support optimal hormone production, and feel empowered, start moving some weights! I cannot stress this enough. No matter what age you are, this will support your health and well-being. 

And NO it isn’t going to make you bulky, in fact it will help lean you out, get your bones stronger and of course help you feel stronger and fitter within yourself! 

Remember… We all start somewhere, so if it's 1kg or 100kg, you got this! Join a gym, take part in a group fitness program, whatever it looks like, but start picking up some weight. It doesn’t have to replace your exercise currently, but see if it can become something you do 2 - 3 x a week. The results will speak for themselves!

5. SUPPLEMENTS:

This is NOT a one size fits all! Make sure you’re supporting your body with the nutrients that we can’t get enough of through food, or are being depleted by stress! Unfortunately, when it comes to supplements, you definitely want to be careful what you put in the body as not all supplements are created equal! 

The other side of the supplement equation is that they do play a very important role! Nowadays our soils aren’t being replenished with the nutrients they once were and this leads to deficiencies of nutrients in our food supply, like zinc, iodine and selenium! And if they aren’t in the soil then they aren’t in our food and then we can’t get them! 

So, I recommend that you speak to a qualified health-care provider (like myself) when choosing supplements so you aren’t just taking anything off the shelves!

How To Heal Your Relationship With Food Part Two

HOW TO HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD - PART TWO

02 / MARCH / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

A couple of weeks ago I shared part one! If you missed it… check it out here before we dive into part two! 

Ready? 

Here’s how to ditch the GUILT and REMOVE the emotional eating.

IMPORTANT STEPS TO HEALING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD

STEP ONE:

1️⃣ ACKNOWLEDGE - acknowledge that you ate the food (sound simple) but often we don’t eat this way in front of others, and try to hide it from ourselves too. 

Also, acknowledge the guilt. Name it, call it out. 

Let it show it’s face instead of just being a feeling that you’re trying to suppress. 

When we name the feeling, it has nowhere to hide and we can start to move past it (thanks @alyssanobriga - turns out this tip works for food too).

STEP TWO:

2️⃣ ACCEPT - accept that it happened, accept that you feel the guilt, you can’t change the past so let’s not let it ruin the present or inhibit our future. 

Feel where the guilt is present in the body, is it the stomach, the heart, the mind, the chest, the throat, feel into the presence of the emotion that it has brought up if it serves you. 

Take a few deep breaths into the guilt, keep breathing through it without judgement, and let it pass. 

3️⃣ LET GO - let go of the feeling, let the guilt pass, move on from it and show up for yourself in the way you want to be. 

For the next meal you are going to have, make it one that nourishes your body, fills you up with nutrients and is going to truly satisfy you. 

Let go of the judgement you placed on yourself, let go of the guilt and know that each meal, each moment is a chance to start to embody the you you want to become. 

Make your choices from this place, not a place of guilt or hatred towards yourself (I know, I’ve been there). 

FINALLY...

Please know, it’s not about ‘starting fresh’ or having ‘cheat meals’ these labels only make things worse. 

It’s like we are giving ourselves permission to binge out and do a disservice to our bodies, knowing we can ‘start fresh’ the next day. 

Go back to that question in part one… if you truly feel like that food, and you’ve checked with yourself there’s not another driving factor behind it… then ENJOY IT! 

It’s about eating well for you, where you’re at, and restriction often makes things worse! 

So, be kind to your body, after all, it is the one TRUE HOME you have! 

Yours in Health,
