Gut Problems

You don’t have to suffer stomach woes any longer.

Learn to listen to your body and what it needs to feel the best it possibly can.  (Not sure how to do this?  Book your next session with me HERE)

I can certainly speak from experience what it’s like to have to worry about those uncomfortable bathroom moments.

While my 20’s were supposed to be fun and exciting…I was silently suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS.

I had a few embarrassing moments while dating.  There were times when I had to cut it short, not because the date failed my expectations but because of awful pains in my stomach with a sudden urge to run to the bathroom.

My gut or rather my intuition warned me that I was creating these problems for myself due to poor nutrition, a weak immune system and alcohol abuse.

Symptoms & Solutions

Luckily during my management experience at a health food store I had the opportunity to gain specialized training in digestive health.

I started taking probiotics supplements (and I still do today) on a daily basis.  Probiotics are healthy bacteria, organisms or microbiota that aid in increasing flora in your microbiome a.k.a. gut.

I noticed that almost immediately, I started feeling back in balance which I had not felt for a long time.

My symptoms included:


Foggy Brain

Irregularity (constipation & diarrhea)



Achy Joints

Stomach Pain


Fear of Eating


L-Glutamine & Probiotics

While probiotics began to heal my body in many ways (check out my blog: Brain Belly Interconnection) I also needed to repair my intestinal lining.

For that, I highly recommend supplements (which I have no partnership with) such as Intestinew by Renew Life.  This product was formulated by Brenda Watson, MD.

It has nutrients in it like l-glutamine powder which help by repairing the mucosa lining of the stomach.  It calms, soothes and regulates the digestive tract, therefore making it strong again.

Intestinew powder is very effective, absorbs well and acts quickly.  I have helped many people, including myself with this product.

I would highly suggest trying this product and also supplementing with probiotics.  My favorite brand is Jarrow Formulas but there are a few other great brands on the market as well.  I’ve been able to purchase all of these products at my local health food/vitamin store.

If for some reason you can’t find Intestinew at a local shop, supplementing with l-glutamine powder alone may assist with your healing process.

L-Glutamine Dosage

You only need a small amount mixed in water and drink it throughout the day, no more than 5 grams (5000 mg).

L-glutamine is more well known for body builders because it’s a natural muscle relaxant so that muscles may grow bigger but it is actually very medicinal.  Body builders would typically take higher doses so don’t worry – you will not turn into the Hulk overnight!

L-glutamine can make you feel a little drowsy since it’s a precursor to GABA in the brain so I suggest putting it in a water bottle and drinking it slowly throughout the day.

For more information on the amino acid l-glutamine, read Dr.Axe’s article: Leaky Gut & Metabolism.
