Most everyone reading my blog should know by now that I am tackling some pretty major gut issues! The road has been a long one but after a 2 year journey, health and healing is in sight. And let me tell you, it feels incredible!
Most health conscious individuals know that the root of all ailments is in your gut. Illness, disease, behavioral issues, mental health issues, and a host of other issues can all be traced back to gut health. Antibiotics, synthetic hormones, vaccines, GMOs, pollution, and a loooong list of other modern day nasties has pretty much compromised all of our guts, no matter how much care we take.
I tried to heal my gut on my own for 2+ years. While I am sure my efforts kept things from getting worse, I simply could not do it all on my own. I needed support from someone with a lot more expertise than me.
As you know, I have been working with Lydia from Divine Health. She has been a godsend and literally gave me my life back.
Lydia launched a phenomenal eCourse this fall called Why Your Gut Is Making You Sick and What You Can Do About It. I joined in to see what it was all about and can tell you that I have been VERY impressed.
The 6 week class tackles an introduction to digestion and how to get it working more optimally. You would be surprised at what you think you know about your gut but in fact, how little you really do know.
Lydia offers live calls once per week as part of this class and I have found them to be incredibly informative. The class participants learn a lot through interacting with each other and Lydia! The calls are all recorded which is great because you can go back and listen to them, making notes if need be. If you miss a call, you have the option to listen later.
In addition to the calls, there is a lot of other support through email, a private Facebook group, assessments, recipes, downloads, etc… Lydia really goes above and beyond in her quest to help you begin to understand and heal your gut.
Lydia is launching a second session of this popular eCourse. The 6 week course will run from January 3rd- February 16th. Just for Hybrid Rasta Mama readers, you can get 15% off with coupon code RASTA15. (You can also enter to win one spot in the class.
