Lisa’s Life Lesson - Blame it On the Bloat

Uncategorized

We all have that favorite pair of pants or jeans, right?⁠


Well, I put my jeans on the other day and I could barely get them zipped. What the heck is going on??⁠

“BLAME IT ON THE BLOAT” came over the speaker while I was catching up on The Bulletproof Podcasts. Dr Izabbella Wentz, a clinical pharmacist was talking gut disorders like Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (real sexy topics, I know)⁠.

 

This episode spoke about the health benefits of celery juice - I know, I made the same face this first time I heard it. But, when I heard all the perks, I was pretty much sold. Celery juice is packed with vitamins and antioxidants, doesn't spike your blood sugar, and can aid with digestion. 

 

Long story short…celery juice is great for digestion and can help banish bloating which is just what I need to solve my jean which is what I need to fix my jeans issue. So, now it's part of my daily mourning routing and I can't recommend it enough. Of course, always check with your primary care physician or better yet, your functional medicine doctor.⁠

I did! And after a few shots of celery juice, I was back into my favorite pair of jeans!⁠
