Episode 034: How Food Affects Our Bodies with Maggie Berghoff
This episode with Maggie is about slowing down and paying attention to our gut health. Our overall well-being, internal and external, is channeled through our gut. What we decide to eat, how we think, our physical environment, all of these things affect our gut and if something is off balance, our body calls out for help through sensations. This can show up as anxiety, depression, moodiness, the inability to sleep, bloating after meals, food intolerances; all of that fun stuff. Maggie gets really deep into this and gives us some insight on how we can explore our bodies signals so we can heal.
