My gut microbiome test results – the good, the bad, the ugly {212}

Jul 27, 2022 | Podcast

Welcome to this week’s episode where I am talking about my latest gut microbiome test results and walking you through why I ran this test, what the test is, what it means, what my results are and what I’m doing about it.

I talk about the gut microbiome all the time on the podcast because it’s so foundational. This episode is a deep dive into your gut microbiome and a practical approach to what you can actually do about it.

I’m spilling all the beans of what practical steps you can take and how we can gather information and be really empowered about our gut health because the better your gut microbiome is, the better your immune system, hormone balance, your skin, sleep, mental health, mood and cognitive function and performance will be. I could go on and on with this list.

In the last 30 years, the research on the gut microbiome has been really in-depth so we know so much more than we used to, but we actually don’t know how to apply it because this is new (ish) in terms of what we know about the body.

So, I want to share with you all the information about my gut microbiome and the stool test that I ran recently (lucky you) and what it means.

There’s some good stuff and there’s some ugly stuff going on which is why I ran this test in the first place – You might think, okay, this is the nutritionist talking, she runs the Gut Goddess Show, her gut microbiome must be amazing  It’s not but it’s better than it used to be.

I can tell you that the gut microbiome is like a garden. It requires tending to. When you have the right information, it’s actually really simple. – At the end of this episode, I’ll share my action plan with you.

The reason I am sharing this is because I know that if you can improve your gut microbiome, everyone benefits. You benefit, your systems benefit, from a preventative perspective your longevity benefits. Other people benefit because it affects your mood. It affects your brain. It affects your mental health.

You feeling better. You optimising and improving the things that you can influence and impact is obviously an incredible benefit to you. It’s also a gift and an active service to those around you.

Most of the time, people would never want to invest in private tests like this because there’s not tests available in the NHS, in the UK or are always done privately (So, you need to pay for them) Most people would never invest because they think it’s unnecessary, or it feels selfish to improve their health, or it feels uncomfortable.

But when you actually realise that you, the state of your brain, health, body, systems, hormones really obviously affects you, but it also affects everyone around you, investing your money and your time into your health actually becomes the least selfish thing you can do.

It’s actually a really wise investment. 

So, if you do one thing to work on your health in the next year, work on your gut microbiome and your insulin management. Those are actually two key foundational things for you to feel good now, in terms of impacting your mental health, your hormones, your skin, your sleep, but also from a preventative perspective, because yes, I want you to feel good now, but I also want to feel really good when you’re 80.

I want you to be like that granny, who’s gardening and doing yoga in her garden. Someone who is a really well, older person.

If you want to know more about this and you want to dive deep into your gut health, but you’re not ready to work with me one-on-one, you can still sign up for my summer workshops and you’ll get access to my gut health workshop and hormone workshop.

If you sign up for the bundle you’ll get all of the workshops for £33. I will be reselling these later on as a program / course at a much higher price.

As of recording this, there’s still the Energised workshop to run, and I’m also doing one on body composition. You can sign up for these workshops here.

If you feel like you don’t know what’s going on with your health and you have been trying, have tried different things and you’ve made an effort but you’re not seeing any results or think things are getting worse, chances are you need some personalised support. As of recording this, I still have two spaces left for my summer retreat.

This is an incredible opportunity for you to work with me privately one-on-one in July and August.

They’re completely bespoke, private, personalised one-to-one sessions at a fraction of the cost of my usual programs where we can really kickstart your progress.

We’ll dive in deep. I do all the data gathering and research. We figure out what’s going on. What’s your symptoms mean

These are only available. I’m only running these in July and August of 2022.

I would love to work with you if you’re on the fence, if you have been struggling, if your symptoms are getting worse, if you’re trying hard and not getting anywhere, if you know that you want to finish up this year, feeling better, having made actual, tangible progress and seeing shifts in your hormones and gut and digestion and all of these kinds of things.

Sign up for the Summer Retreat here.
