245: Is SHAME weighing you down?
With so much focus on what, when, and how to eat, there’s one component of nutrition that tends to get left behind. It’s how you feel – particularly before, during, and after you eat.
The truth is, the gut and the brain are very closely connected – and problems with the gut can actually lead to mood swings, food cravings, and even feelings of anxiety or depression.
But according to my guest, with the right food and knowledge, you can not only transform your physical health, but your mental health as well. And that’s something everyone should be prioritizing.
He’s Dr. Will Cole, a leading functional-medicine expert, host of The Art of Being Well podcast, and author of the new book Gut Feelings: Healing the Shame-Fueled Relationship Between What You Eat and How You Feel.
In this episode, we offer holistic tools to help you reevaluate your relationship with food and your body, get you back in touch with your “gut feelings”, and bridge the gap between your emotions and health.
