Chronic Symptoms

  • Tapping for Bloated Bellies

    Gut issues, belly pain, SIBO, bloating, gas, constipation, & even the weight gain around our tums can be frustrating, uncomfortable, and distract us from being truly present.

    I know these feelings FAR too well.

    💧Fasting did not work.
    🍠Low FODMAP didn’t work.
    🍒Fruitarian destroyed me.

  • Body Checking

    For those of you that can't stop scanning for symptoms or "body checking" throughout your day: this is for you.

    The brain learns this habit from the innocent place of believing that staying hyper-focused on a symptom might help us "fix" it faster... In reality, the hyper-vigilance and constant b...

  • Support for Long-Haulers

    We all know someone who experienced the chronic symptoms associated with you-know-what. You might be that person.

    You might be wondering: how long is this going to last? Am I going to feel this way forever? Will I ever get back to enjoying my life in the ways I used to before I got sick?

    Per...

  • Trusting the Healing Process

    We like to think that healing happens in a simple straight line and it gets easier and easier once we are on the "right" track.

    Then we have flare-ups that feel defeating, isolating, overwhelming, and frustrating.

    Our symptoms might even worsen when we are doing everything "right."

    When we ch...

  • Rethinking Chronic Symptoms

    It's exhausting to feel unwell, day after day.

    Use this sequence to soften the intensity of managing chronic symptoms and find some instant relief when you need it most.

    As always, I love hearing how these feel for you, so feel free to let me know what comes up in the comments below!

  • Chronic Symptoms & Flare-Ups

    Even though we've been dealing with certain symptoms for a while, it can still be helpful to shift the stories that dictate how we relate to these symptoms. The more you practice shifting, the more effortless it becomes.

    Curious what you notice in your body when symptoms no longer take up as...

  • It's Taking Too Long

    If it feels like it's taking too long to heal, this sequence is for you.

    What if it's taking exactly as long as it needs to? What if your body is already working overtime to keep things healing and progressing, and it's only the mind that finds frustration with this speed?

    What would it do to T...

  • Embracing Resistance

    You know those things that you KNOW will feel good when you finish them, but for some strange reason, you can't seem to get yourself to do them?

    This is for you....

  • You Won't Be Healing Forever

    The conversation that keeps coming up sounds like a confused soup of:

    "Will I have to be healing forever" paired with "I don't even know if I can heal..."

    As we can glean from nature: nothing lasts forever. Everything is in motion, everything is always changing, including us! Yet, we forget! ...

  • Tapping for Flare-ups

    Healing is non-linear.

    We go up, we go down, things get better, then when we least expect it, we take a nice dip into the mud.

    Here's some tapping for moving through the process of healing, whatever that might look like for you today.

    How did this one go?

  • Feeling like a Burden

    You might currently find yourself needing extra support on your healing journey right now.

    That might mean leaning on your loved ones financially, emotionally, energetically, and even physically.

    In this process, sometimes you find yourself feeling like a burden. (When I felt too ill to work ...

  • Feeling Trapped in Your Body

    Regardless of what phase of life you are in, feeling held back, restricted, trapped, or limited in any way is bound to show up: that's the nature of things!

    There will always be trade offs, things we miss, things we "can't" get to or things we choose to do instead.

    There might be moments of re...

  • Fear of Travel

    Travel is tricky.

    Travel can be especially testing if we are already at full capacity.

    Or maybe you've had experiences on the road away from home that didn't feel ideal and it's as if your brain is scared that things will go wrong...because last time they did!

    Perhaps we are hanging on to "h...

  • Fear of Getting Better

    Some of you have mentioned that despite wanting nothing more than to feel better, there's fear of responsibility and expectations increasing if you were to suddenly be seen as fully functional and completely capable.

    Will I have to work a job I don't like?

    Will I suddenly have to live in a way ...

  • Research Overwhelm

    In our attempts to "heal," we often get trapped in the loop of researching next steps, new treatment protocols, diets, supplements, devices, wondering what the next thing will be that might finally heal us.

    This way of being can be stressful in and of itself, as we feel like we need to push hard...

  • Constipation Relief

    I know from speaking to so many of you that slow motility, constipation, and the perpetual management of the bowels is something that takes up a lot of mind space. (I get it, I really do.)

    I know from personal experience when I lost all gut motility how energy intensive it is to be backed up and...
