Welcome to Love Your Gutz!


Hi, it’s Mitch and Gina!
We are so happy you came to our website. Love Your Gutz was created to help inspire, educate and support others to take control of their health and find greater happiness.

 

Why the name Love Your Gutz? Because like so many other health professionals, we believe that real health begins in the GUT. Hippocrates would also agree as he stated long, long ago that “all disease begins in the gut.” New research has discovered what they call the gut microbiome or gut flora. Your bowels are literally home to trillions of microorganisms and imbalances within this gut flora can drastically affect your health. And not just your physical health, but mental health as well. Your gut is quite literally your second brain and is intricately connected to your primary brain via what is called the gut-brain axis. Gut health influences mental health and vice-versa. This is why some psychiatrists are now actually prescribing probiotics to those with mental health conditions! It goes without saying then that one of our main focuses is to help you cleanse, nourish and strengthen those lovely bowels of yours. Check out the extended herbal cleanse on our website HERE. Remember: it’s all about your poop!

 

Where do you start? The first step to a healthy gut is diet – a whole foods, plant-based diet. We believe eliminating all animal products from your diet can bring you and the environment even greater health, Yes, we are vegan. But that’s just us and our opinion. The most important thing for you to do is to base your diet on plants (at least 80%) and eliminate all processed foods from your life. Going plant-based doesn’t have to be complicated and tasteless and mean you’ll go hungry either. Trust us, it can actually be quite simple, filling and delicious! You will find some happy recipes on our blog, but there are much better chefs out there with loads of awesome whole food, plant based recipes. Why not give a new recipe a try this week!

 

Food is not the only thing affecting the health of your bowels. There are countless aspects of your life that may be negatively influencing your gut, including the use of cosmetics, environmental factors, stress, and even your relationships! If you have been trying to heal your gut and restore your health with little success, then we encourage you to book an initial health consulation with either GIna or Mitch so that we can do our best to help you!

 

Once again, we are glad you are with us here at Love Your Gutz. Feel free to browse around and contact us if you have any questions.

 

Remember: Plants + Poops = Peace

 

Much love,

Love Your Gutz!
