“When you bring in more vegetables and trade out some of the less healthy food for dark leafy greens and different colors of vegetables, lots of different flavors and fibers, you’re feeding a diversity of those good gut bugs that are going to help regulate your blood sugar. They’re going to help you detox your body.”
Elissa Arnheim is a certified holistic health coach, and certified fermentationist, and holds an MS in ecological planning.
When her son was diagnosed with a rare and highly aggressive tumor at age 2, she went deep into the research on gut health to help him heal from cancer, surgeries, chemo, and trauma and discovered that applying the principles of ecology to the gut microbiome is crucial to repair and rebalance every system in the body.
Now Elissa helps people of all ages drastically reduce inflammation and restore their gut microbiome with new choices that feel good. Elissa hosts the upcoming The New Science of Healthy Elimination Summit. In this episode, we discuss different techniques to stop constipation and promote healthy elimination.
