It's so frustrating, I am doing all the right things Trina - but my digestive health is still not right!

I hear this so often in my clinic. People expressing their frustration and dismay of "I am eating right, I am managing my stress and I am taking good quality supplements but I still am bloated, my bowels aren't right and my appetite is all over the place". 

3 metaphysical reasons for digestive symptoms such as bloating, pain, constipation.

3 Common metaphysical reasons for digestion struggles.

✅ Your self esteem is running low.

What?! How does that work! It is worth hanging in there while I explain this one.

Everybody's self esteem tanks bottom out every now and then for a variety of reasons including:

  • In challenging times your self worth and self value are often gobbled up faster than they are being generated!
  • You might be like me whereby you require sustained, wakeful and aware effort to maintain healthy self esteem. 
TOP TIP: My self esteem bottoms out when I am pushing myself beyond my limits and asking more of myself than is reasonable, fair or even kind to do so. 

I use a variety of tools to add buoyancy to my self esteem. All are taught in my courses. Click here for more information.

How does self esteem relate to digestion? 

  • Your gut is constantly making important decisions as to what building blocks to absorb into the fabric and structure of your body.
  • When self esteem is low, then overwhelm, confusion and lack of clarity can set in. Decision making can become wishy washy at best. 
  • Hang in there, for the second point...

✅ On top of food, your digestive system contributes to processing your emotions and thoughts.

  • Your brain is the main centre when it comes to thinking thoughts and the heart for emotions.
  • Your digestive system helps decides which thoughts and emotions will be absorbed into the fabric of the psyche and structure of the body.
  • To decide "hmm - what becomes part of me?" There needs to be a healthy perspective of self identity to make wise choices. This of course comes back to healthy self esteem.

✅ There is a soul quality associated with digestion and it is INTENT.

  • Intent assists your digestion with the clarity and focus it needs to make healthy decisions about what nutrients, thoughts and emotions to make part of your body.
  • How? Intent assists you to be more mindful and awake to what underlies your choices. That is the will driving those choices. 
  • Anxiety, worry, rumination can scatter the soul quality of intent in the digestive system leading to sluggishness and overwhelm.

Can I make a suggestion for your self esteem and digestive health?

  • MIND: Positive self talk. You have many qualities that are a kind, caring and generous. Give these qualities your focus. Tell yourself regularly. Own your value and worth. Affirm it.
  • BODY: Listen to your body and give it time and space to rest , have fun, move, consume nutrient dense food when it calls for it. 
  • EMOTIONS: Practice self soothing activities listening to music, stretching, exercise, massage, baths, candles, journalling. What would you add to this list?
