163: Trusting and Healing Your Gut with Chelsea Haines

Trust your gut!

You hear me say it. You hear others say it – but do you allow yourself to trust your innate “knowing”? You may also have a love-hate relationship with your physical gut… not knowing what’s making you feel bloated, tired, and gassy.

Today, we’re talking about all things gut-related with Certified Gut Health Coach, Chelsea Haines.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Chelsea’s personal journey of autoimmune disease healing
  • Gut healing and change is not about WHAT you eat it’s about HOW you do
  • Things you can start doing to help regulate your gut and nervous system
  • Safety and pleasure are key parts of the healing journey but guilt and the shame aren’t
  • Ways to start healing food intolerances and sensitivities
  • How to use your gut-brain connection in your favor

“Nurturing your inner rebellious child is really important, but just is taking morality away from food and saying, Listen, I’m not a good or a bad person based on what I eat. That’s so ridiculous to even consider, but that’s what diet culture has taught us.”

“We can power pose and we can affirmation our way into feeling good and fit, into optimizing our health all day, every day, but if our subconscious mind is resisting all of that, because we believe that it’s going to be hard (…) it’s not going to be pleasant.”

“This isn’t about judgment. It’s about curiosity and how can I start shifting from who I’m being which is stressed AF back to a rest and digest state so that I can enjoy my food.”

“Coming back to trusting your body over anything that I say is always going to trump everything.”

“Your body needs to feel safe to lose weight, to balance your hormones, to digest your food, to have an orgasm. If you don’t feel safe, life isn’t fun.”
