My guest this week is Terra Rose Ganem. She is CEO / President of Body Brilliance as well as a Speaker & Holistic Nutritionist. Terra delivers a ton of value in this podcast! She gives 4 easy tips on how we can use nutrition to produce more Serotonin (aka the Happy Hormone) and balance out Cortisol (aka the Stress Hormone).
Nutrition Hacks to help us feel happy
Serotonin, the Happy Hormone – is mostly created in our gut. Gut Health is VERY important. Unfortunately, many people do not have a very healthy gut. Here are a couple quick and easy tips on how to heal your gut.
Gut Health Tip #1: Hydration
- Drinking water isn’t enough, we need mineralization for the water to be pulled into the cell and hydrate the cell
- Add healthy enzymes and minerals to your water.
- Pink Himalayan Salt
- Grey Sea Salt – You can order Grey Sea Salt from Terra’s company by clicking here!
- Trace Minerals
- ***Helps with constipation
- Sole Recipe
Gut Health Tip 2: Probiotics
- Sauerkraut – no vinegar
- *Coconut Kefir is great for people who have a dairy allergy. Inner-Eco Kefir
- Pill form Pro-Biotics – 50 Billion or more with a variety.
Cortisol Leveling Tip 1: Eat 3-5 meals per day
- 7am, 10am, 12pm,2:30pm, 6pm
- Set alarms and don’t ignore them.
- Set aside 5 – 10 minutes
- protein smoothie for breakfast
- fruit and nuts for a morning snack
- salad for lunch
- celery & hummus for your afternoon snack
- protein and veggies for dinner
- This will help your blood sugar level out and cortisol levels to balance out.Helps with mood swings.
- 60% Augmenting Foods / 40% Extractive Foods – More on this and images found here on www.halepule.com.
- Take the time
- Chew your food! 30-40x per bite. Digestion and good health begins in the mouth. 🙂
Honey, you need to chew your food because you don’t have teeth in your intestines.
Cortisol Leveling Tip 2: Take time for yourself
- Allow yourself 5 minutes of space for yourself.
- No technology, nobody else, just sit and breath.
- This will slow down your mind and balance out the cortisol.
