Transform Your Health: How Addressing Psychology, Diet, and Lifestyle Can Heal Digestive Issues

Changing the way you eat, live, and heal starts with psychology.

The fact is, once you start your healing journey, your whole life will shift. Food, people, and habits that seemed acceptable before but did not serve you well will no longer be part of your healing journey or your new life once you have healed, because you will have understood that negative energy, food, and people are bad for your digestive system, health, and life.

Before embarking on your journey to heal your digestive issues, you need to examine your entire life and lifestyle to identify the root causes of your pain. It's vital to pinpoint food intolerances, sensitivities, allergies, stress triggers, and past trauma, which can manifest as digestive problems, as was the case for me. No dietary change or medication will heal your digestive issues if you don't address the underlying causes.

Healing requires real change, moving beyond symptom management to address the root issues and adopt healthier habits.

I learned this firsthand while dealing with laryngitis, gastritis, GERD, acid reflux, bloating, constipation, and gut inflammation, which began in my childhood when I learned to eat my feelings through overeating and binge eating. Progress in my healing journey only came when I understood the trauma and behavioral patterns I used to cope with anxiety, pain, and panic attacks—until they no longer worked, and my entire digestive system shut down.
Once I hit rock bottom, I committed to making lasting changes in how I dealt with my past trauma, my behavior towards anxiety, my diet, and lifestyle—not just temporarily, but for good.

Here’s what worked for me:

  • Healing from past trauma
  • Cutting out all sugar, even my favorite cakes
  • Managing daily stress
  • Reducing my coffee intake to one cup a day with meals
  • Eating regular meals throughout the day
  • Adopting mindful eating habits, including smaller portions and thorough chewing
  • Cooking at home whenever possible
  • Avoiding spices like salt, pepper, chili, and vinegar, and opting for milder flavors
  • Choosing boiled or oven-prepared dishes over fried foods
  • Avoiding eating 3-4 hours before bedtime
  • Ensuring a solid 8 hours of sleep each night
  • Establishing healthy boundaries with family and friends
  • Removing myself from negative influences, even if it meant cutting ties with family and childhood friends
  • Incorporating our organic Mojo & Melo herbal teas into my routine, either after meals or between them, which have been particularly beneficial. Not only are they a cup of zen filled with relaxing natural remedies, but they are also full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
