Digestive Tips, On How To Rework The Stress Response When It Comes To Food

In this episode of heartbeat, Dr. Brooke Stuart dives into a discussion on digestive tips and how to rework the stress response when it comes to food. When you are mindful and relaxed, your system can switch into a parasympathetic state where it can rest, digest and process the food you are eating more efficiently.

  • Evolutionary Mismatch: In this day and age, our systems are, in general, more distressed than ever before- we meet foods that act like warfare and then expect our bodies to function as we berate it in this enculturated state of duress. Cue the term evolutionary mismatch- where our choices to not align with health, growth and thus, self-actualization.
  • Tune In: If this resonates, take a second to place your hands over your heart and return to the present moment. Here, you can take in a deep breath, say a prayer, give thanks to your beautiful body as you shift into the next moment through the now moment and form a new relationship with your body, food and eating patterns.
  • Supplements: Certain supplements can be a helpful bridge to the other side. Here, we can provide the system with messages of safety as we form new patterns that translate into new lived experiences.

  • Optimal Digestion: Optimal digestion takes place when we restore health by aligning our choices with it. When we do this, we have the opportunity to unlock our power in a number of different ways gifted with the chance to join new conversations and move beyond the distraction that comes from being incoherent and disconnected.
  • The Illusion Of Moderation: From my viewpoint, there is really only what works and what doesn’t at the various stages, times and points in our lives. With this, we must acknowledge and embrace the truth of our experiences so we can make choices that honor our roots grounded in biology and the wings which expand through our more esoteric evolutionary needs.
