Healing Your Gut: Transforming Habits for a Healthier Digestive System

1️⃣ I Will Never Eat My Feelings Again

From early childhood, I learned to eat my feelings. Whenever I experienced fear, anxiety, or panic, I turned to food for comfort. I consumed it quickly and in large portions, initially numbing my emotional pain but soon replacing it with physical pain due to stomach cramps, bloating, and constipation. This unhealthy coping mechanism became my primary way of dealing with emotions for decades, leading to long-term damage to my digestive system.

2️⃣ I Will Never Eat Something That Makes Me Feel Bad Just to Please Someone Else

To make my mother and later others happy, I always ate whatever was on my plate, even if I knew it would make me feel bad. I avoided friction and tried to maintain harmony and peace. This pattern continued with friends at dinner parties because I didn’t want to attract negative attention or cause any friction. By constantly prioritising others' feelings over my own health, I harmed my gut and overall well-being.

3️⃣ I Will Never Finish a Plate When My Stomach Says “Enough” to Avoid Offending Someone

This also applied to the large portions of food I received. I didn’t want to offend anyone by not finishing my plate, as they might interpret it as not liking their food or being ungrateful for the effort and cost involved. I continued this pattern into my adult life at social and professional gatherings, not wanting to come across as rude or ungrateful. This habit further contributed to my digestive issues, as I ignored my body's signals to stop eating.

Understanding the Impact of Poor Eating Habits on Digestive Health

All these behaviours established poor eating habits and ineffective ways of dealing with anxiety, fear, and panic attacks. Over time, these habits led to the abuse of my stomach, gut, and entire digestive system. The constant cycle of emotional eating, ignoring my body's signals, and consuming foods that made me feel ill took a significant toll on my digestive health.

The Journey to Healing

Today, as a healed person, I have transformed my habits and learned healthier ways to cope with emotions and maintain digestive health. Here are some strategies that have helped me along the way:

  1. Mindful Eating: I now pay attention to my body's signals and eat slowly, savoring each bite. This practice helps me recognize when I am full and prevents overeating.

  2. Choosing Gut-Friendly Foods: I prioritise foods that nourish my gut, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. I avoid processed foods and ingredients that trigger digestive discomfort.

  3. Setting Boundaries: I have learned to say no politely and prioritise my health over pleasing others. This change has empowered me to make better food choices without feeling guilty.

  4. Emotional Awareness: Instead of turning to food for comfort, I practice self-awareness and address my emotions directly. Techniques like journaling, meditation, and talking to a therapist have been instrumental in this process.
