Am I bloated? Or is there something going on? Jamie DeLaurentis is going to help us clear it up!! Many of you reach out to me asking about bloating and feeling like you need to cut foods out due to intolerances – so to address that, I wanted to make sure I brought on one of the best to talk about this.. and that's where Jamie comes in! If you struggle with gut health or want to know more about gut health, this is your episode!
WHO IS JAMIE DELAURENTIS?
Hi! I am Jamie DeLaurentis, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and founder of Legal Living®. With a specialty in gut health, I work primarily with those struggling with some form of chronic GI issue. However, aside from helping clients alleviate their X, Y, and Z symptoms, I also prioritize the mental and emotional components of their journey. One big one is their mental and emotional relationship with food. Traditionally, any form of gut issue is treated with a strict and lengthy elimination diet. From my experience, I know how harsh and taxing this can be – in more ways than one. Therefore, I flipped the funnel. Within my program, The Legal Method, I provide enough structure for guidance and freedom for clients to tune in and uncover their triggers – WHILE improving and empowering their relationship with food and their bodies. It's less about what to eliminate and more about what we can add.
THE MAIN POINTS JAMIE AND I ARE CHATTING ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE.
- Jamie's story – how did you get interested in gut health?
- What is IBS – can you give us a general overview?
- The difference between prebiotics and probiotics.. do we need them? (dropping the teaaaa on this)
- First steps to gut healing.. where to even begin?
- Gut health and serotonin – how are the brain and gut connected?
- What is the difference between sensitivity, intolerance, and allergy (and how to know)?
MORE FROM JAMIES’S EPISODE:
One thing I appreciate about Jamie's approach so much is her mentality of adding in rather than cutting out. Jamie and I talk a lot about that and how it helps when eliminating foods that don't help us feel good without creating a scarcity mindset.
