I know you have a bank account that you strive to keep healthy (or positive at the very least)! But what about your body? When was the last time you made a solid investment? Has it been days? Years?
Here are 12 signs you’ve landed yourself in some serious nutritional debt:
- Slowed metabolism
- Poor sleep
- Easily stressed/ sympathetic dominance
- Hormonal imbalance & infertility
- Overweight or underweight
- Weak digestion
- Food allergies
- Impaired detoxification
- Poor blood sugar handling
- Vitamin & mineral deficiencies
- Strong food cravings
I often tell clients to think of their body as a bank account. When the balance of nutrients gets too low, you start having issues: food allergies, wounds that won’t heal, digestive problems, and are more sensitive/prone to disease. This is when most people end up at the doctor for an Rx to mask a “symptom.” When you land in the nutritional negative, it is very helpful to make GREATER (and strategic) nutritional contributions to our body for several months (as we all know, getting out of debt is NOT a quick process).
Sheila is a busy working mom and she often neglects to take care of herself because she is busy tending to the needs of others. Hence she has been “borrowing” against her own nutritional bank account for years simply by not eating enough nutrient dense food. Her body has even ADAPTED by decreasing her appetite (further perpetuating the problem), decreasing her digestive juices, and slowing her metabolism. She now has digestive problems, is overweight, and has low energy. She restricts her food intake and counts calories to try to lose weight.
What is wrong with Sheila’s approach? She is trying to refill her bank account by RESTRICTING her intake of food! Now, anyone with common sense would agree that something is fishy here.
The marketing industry is a huge culprit for brainwashing you into thinking you need to “diet” and “cut calories” when in reality, both excess weight and food cravings represent a deficient body that is starving for nutrients! However, it is a clever strategy for achieving great profits. All of the sudden, the market opens up for a “diet” version of everything (a manufacturer’s dream)!
ABUNDANT eating to the rescue!
Repairing tissues, building new cells, and fighting stress requires increased caloric demands. Make sure to give your body what it needs with nutrient dense food.
