It was about 10 p.m. on Mother’s Day and I was a mess. On paper, it had been the most thoughtful and perfect Mother’s Day I could imagine. Yet there I was, settling in for a restless night on the couch. (When I commit to shutting down and hiding, I really go for it.)

They often see food as the problem and so they want to get big diagnostic tests that spit out answers that say “avoid this food and this food and your digestive issues will be solved!” While this is a great part of a plan for many folks, the truth is that there’s a lot we can do to improve our digestion without having to take a single test—it’s all about shifting our mindset while we eat.Read More
