I became a marriage counsellor between my body and brain

Marriage counsellor between my body and brain

There was a time I dreaded going out.

I would do anything I could to come up with a reason to avoid it.

Every time I went out I had to deal with the anxiety of not knowing how my guts would behave.

It was a bad relationship I had with my body.

I have had digestive challenges my whole life.  We are talking about from birth to adulthood.

  • Grumbly tummy that can sing a bloody symphony for all to hear.
  • Needing to know where all washrooms are at all times.
  • Freaking pains that almost crippled me.
  • Looking at all food like it could be my mortal enemy

Why the hell would I want to go out?

When I was younger, all dairy was removed.  And then a little thing called Lactaid became a thing and that certainly helped for a while.

Then I got the diagnosis of IBS (Irritable Bowel syndrome)… in other words it’s code for “I don’t know what the f*ck is wrong with you so we’ll call it IBS.

As an adult, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, which didn’t exactly make me super happy, but it explained so much.

  • Why I was tired all the time.
  • Why pretty much everything I ate hated me.
  • Why my immunity sucked.
  • Why my skin was crap.

It all made sense.

Except for the fact that nobody wanted to address that everything happening was because my body was at dis-ease from the inside.

Nobody wanted to work on that, and I foolishly went along with what everyone said.

It was easier to give me a prescription and send me on my way, and at the time, I was easier for me to mask symptoms and take it than do any real work on healing.

I guess I needed to be in a place that was bad enough to want to do something about it.

Things finally did get bad enough that I took the crazy pants approach of healing me from the inside out.

What did I do?  This…

  1. Eat clean and avoiding my triggers.
  2. Support my system nutritionally with what it was seriously lacking specifically badass probiotics
  3. Treating myself with respect and class.

I was now in the most important relationship of my life. One with me.

I became my own marriage counsellor between my body and brain.

My brain was in denial there was a problem I had to deal with while my body was screaming at the top of it’s lungs for my brain to listen.

There were no more excuses because what was happening inside came purely down to me and my past mistreatment of the one and only body I’m every going to have.

It’s so effortless to use our body’s outcries as a get-out-of-jail free card because, face it… when we do this, we are really drawing attention to the negative. We keep inviting more illness, more drama, more lack of wellness. Why… cause that’s easier!

I finally had enough of all that bullshit, and I took back control.

Today, I am the boss, and I can proudly go out without having to worry about where every damn bathroom is.

Listen to your body. It will tell you if something is off.

You may even have that nagging feeling that something is just not right.

Then dig deep and ask yourself if you are treating your body with respect and class.

If you’re not, then the question is why not?

It’s time to fully be in this relationship with your body because no matter how strong you think you are, your body will kick your ass if you don’t treat it like the most precious thing you own.
