When we’re facing a chronic health challenge, one of the great ways to help ourselves is to turn to food and diet. So many of us have had great success when using the “food as medicine” approach.
But what happens when our healing diet routine feels too restrictive?
And how do we reconcile our need to avoid certain foods with our natural desire for freedom and exploration?
These are just some of the questions Cecili’s hopes to unpack as Marc’s guest on this episode.
Cecili is a nutritionist who’s spent more than a decade self-treating her own inflammatory bowel disease. After rejecting conventional treatments, Cecili embraced a food-as-medicine approach which eliminated her symptoms within months.
Now, Cecili seeks support in one area that continues to confound her – fear and anxiety around introducing new foods into her diet, and their potential for causing unwanted symptoms.
Follow along as Marc supports Cecili to reframe her journey, from a focus on fear and anxiety to the development of self-trust.
“As you become more explorative in your life, it's going to be a little bit easier for digestion to relax,” Marc says.
And when we pair the experience of safety with the knowledge that we are capable of caring for ourselves amidst unwanted symptoms, then we can finally create a more relaxed and joyful nutritional journey.
Listen now to learn more about:
✅ How mental and digestive processes can mirror each other
✅ Why discerning between trust in body and trust in self creates space for exploration
✅ How to cultivate a relaxed and resilient mindset around trying new foods
✅ The importance of challenging limiting beliefs about what we require to be healthy
