GAPS & Stress Part 2: Why Will Power has Nothing to Do with your Ability to Heal Yourself [Energy, Mood, Weight, & Cravings]

***Scroll down if you prefer audio/ video version***

 

So I have to preface this article by saying it contains the best kept secret known to humans. And this is because when you understand how your Blood Sugar literally controls your life, you’ll understand that there is nothing wrong with you as a person. All your ‘bad’ decisions, all the crappy food you’ve eaten [when trying not to], all the awful sh** you’ve said in the heat of the moment that you didn’t mean, it can all be explained by your blood sugar levels.

My Review of Luisa Zhou’s Employee-to-Entrepreneur Course: The Financial Aspect of Health

The process of healing yourself is hard enough as it is without having to worry about the financial aspects of how you are going to make that happen. 

 

GAPS & Wealth

You can’t really talk about GAPS without talking about privilege.  As it is one of the most expensive + obscure diets around.  It seems like GAPS was created for those specifically with socioeconomic & educational privilege.  And really, that’s definitely part of the truth.  The intrinsic need that gave birth to this protocol was the increasing amount of autistic children born on this planet. Parents spending hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to find a solution to no avail.  As a result, Dr. Natasha created the GAPS diet

GAPS & Human Design

The last few weeks I’ve written about what to do if you’re stuck on GAPS. Detox support being the first priority, and then following up with more pinpointed strategies to up level your GAPS game.

GAPS Intro and Coronavirus: The Most Supportive Diet

Mass panic ensues. Toilet paper flies off the shelves, hand sanitizer evaporates the moment it’s back in stock, and politicians declare a state of national emergency.  I remember my partner stalking reddit back in early January wondering how big of a deal this new coronavirus was going to be.  But was any one of us really prepared for it???

Die Off Guide Part 2: 9 Ways to Deal with It

More die off does not equal better.  A pretty common misconception about die off is that ‘the more miserable I can be (aka the more symptoms I can put up with) during die off, the faster I can heal.’ But that is not the case. When I have too much die off at once, not only do my symptoms get way out of control, but these toxins overwhelm my body (you can read more about this process in my article, What is die off, Really? if you haven’t already) causing more harm than good.

Die Off Guide Part 1: What is it, Really?

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about die off and detox. So let’s dive in! Being a GAPS gal myself, I was pretty toxic at first and the amount of ‘good bugs’ in my gut were extremely lacking, so I have a ton of personal experience on this topic (moreso than I would like haha).

Enemas on GAPS: Why You Need Them More than You Think

Avoiding an enema on the GAPS diet can increase the time it takes to heal yourself by three months (says Amy Mihaly, of The Be Well Clinic).  So doing enemas on GAPS may be a major determiner of the outcome you will receive from all the hard work you do this diet. Yes, enemas may seem uncomfortable, but let me just get real with you.  I’ve been healing my gut for three years and just started doing enemas on a regular basis. This habit has completely changed my energy, my mood, my sleep, and my optimism toward healing.
