Welcome back to the Endo Belly Girl Podcast! In today’s episode I talk with my dear friend, Lindsay Little, about my favorite topic: gut health.  Lindsay is a holistic nutritionist who helps women with embarrassing digestive issues. We’re total nerds when it comes to gut health, and I thought it’d be super beneficial to bring Lindsay on board to get another expert perspective.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

-The difference between what is common with digestion, and what is normal; just because it is common does not mean that it is normal.

-How a lot of the symptoms we experience start with the gut, and how our gut health affects every other system in the body.

-Bowel regularity and motility, and the differences between slow and fast motility.

-The root cause of bowel irregularity, such as dysbiosis and leaky gut, and how leaky gut occurs in the body.

-How the Standard American Diet, stress, and medications such as birth control contribute to the causes of dysbiosis, leaky gut, and how the gut microbiome behaves.  

-Hormone production relies on nutrients like healthy fats, but diet culture often misleads us into cutting them out.

-You are on what you absorb, so if the body is not absorbing the needed nutrients, the body cannot function properly especially for hormone production.

-Eating healthy nutrient dense foods is necessary for blood sugar regulation, and regulating all the hormones in your body.

-How constipation can lead to an accumulation of excess estrogen, along with heavy metals and toxins, because the body struggles to eliminate them effectively.

-How the gut is the gatekeeper of hormones, and when there is damage to the gut it is unable to produce hormones and neurotransmitters that are necessary for your body.

-How good and bad bacteria in your gut help regulate estrogen levels.  

Remember, you don’t have to overwhelm yourself with information overload. Start small, keep it simple, and focus on building sustainable habits that’ll last a lifetime. Healing isn’t always a straight line, but every step forward is progress towards better health.
