Are you Stressed?
We hear so much about how stress can affect our health. Of course stress can come in so many different ways. From a physical point of view, if the foods we eat are lacking in nutrients and are high in sugar, fat or sodium then the stress put on our digestive track can come with dire consequences (literally)
It is often said that the gut is the start of our physical and mental health. If the gut is healthy, we are then able to absorb the nutrients we require which in turn can have positive effects on our hormonal and mental health.
