The greater the level of understanding of how your body functions, the better equipped you will be at managing your health and your body's nutritional needs. Developing a sense of "listening to your body" is vitally important for understanding progress, as well as how to deal with obstacles along the way.
At Metabolic Healing, I provide you with hundreds of articles, videos and other media to better inform you of many health-related issues, functions of your body, the philosophy of my approach to healing, data regarding laboratory tests, and a variety of other subjects.
The more informed, involved and educated my clients are, the greater is the potential for healing.
I strongly encourage you to use this website as a resource for educational purposes. The people who make exceptional strides to listen tho their bodies and to trust their nutritional intuition are the ones who make exceptional improvements in their health.
Ultimately, your ability to connect with your body on deeper levels is the key to understanding how to interpret and decode its signals. Please use this FREE food diary as a way to achieve a greater sense of listening to your body.
Enhance your senses around a certain food. How does the food smell to you? How does it taste? What does the thought of a food trigger?
Distinguish the difference between an intuitive understanding of your food and an emotional attachment. This is a big one for people because food can induce powerful sensory and emotional triggers. Food can induce what is called the "peptide effect", which results in the production of various opioid substances. Certain foods like wheat and dairy are known for this.
Follow your intuition. Develop a good relationship with your body and what it needs. In this sense, you become more of a caretaker of your body and are less attached to it.
