Episode 11 | The Brain-Gut Connection: How Your Food Affects Your Mental Health
In this episode of Glow Up Season, I welcome my friend, Arielle, a holistic health coach who used to experience several chronic illnesses before embarking on a transformational health journey that saved her life. Ariel bravely shares her story of how she healed 99% of her chronic illness symptoms, reversed all her diseases, and got off all her medications simply by switching to a plant-based diet and approaching health from a holistic perspective.
“Every single food that we put in our body is either going to fight or fuel disease.” – Arielle
After struggling with countless invisible symptoms, being put on medication after medication, hitting rock bottom, and feeling like she no longer wanted to live… Ariel took her health into her own hands. Listen in to gain insight into what she does as a holistic health coach and how the plant-based lifestyle holistically impacts your health and well-being.
We discuss the power of the brain-gut connection, the dark side of Western medicine, and the impact of cutting out animal products and processed foods on your mental and physical health. Plus, you’ll learn the best tips and tricks for successfully making changes to your diet to improve your quality of life, even if you’re the most stubborn meat-eater. No judgement!
“People don’t realize how good they can actually feel and that is why I do what I do as a health coach… It’s just incredible how, by strengthening your overall health and specifically your gut health, you are also strengthening your mental health.” – Arielle
We aren’t taught this kind of profound knowledge in school and in the midst of a global pandemic, this information has never been more important! That’s why we’re sharing it with you in this podcast.
