Tapping for Bloated Bellies
Chronic Symptoms • 17m
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.
🥦AIP went disastrously.
🥤The elemental formula DEFINITELY did not work.
🔥Hyperthermia (4 hour sessions at 107 degrees with IV antibiotics) beat me down.
🥩Strict carnivore slightly worked, with a cost.
✨I spent many years of my life debilitated by gastroparesis and infections, so I know personally how much gut health impacts our ability to live with ease and joy.
✨80% of the signals from the gut travel back to the brain. So when the gut is inflamed, it is hard to see the world with a sense of beauty!
This tapping is to help honor the suffering that might come up on the gut-healing path, while remembering: your body is on your side.
Let’s send the 20% of the brain-gut signals and use them wisely to support the gut in favorable ways!
No matter what it looks like or feels like, the belly needs some love! In fact, the more intense the discomfort, the more compassion we must offer the gut.
When in doubt, extra love seems to be the way forward.
Feel free to save for later when symptoms are intense or for when you're just having one of those days.
