It can be so difficult during the holiday season to stay on track. We have so many social engagements, holiday parties, different events to go to, and even host some of our own. It is often a time for overindulgence, isn’t it? 

Of course, it is always wonderful to have those special treats – you know, the ones we seem to save for the holidays! One of my family’s favorites is the Cranberry Bread I make. 

In the past, I would just over-indulge and feel lousy about myself, feeling like I had no self-control – or my stomach would feel so bad from having over-consumed.

Many of us live by that counting calorie guide, and of course, we find ourselves way over the limit at this time of year.

5 Reasons You Bloat More After Age 45

Do you suffer from bloating? I know I have in the past – it’s a miserable feeling, isn’t it?

Bloating is generally the result of not being able to properly digest foods. These not-so-digested foods feel like they’re just sitting around causing discomfort and a general feeling of being stuffed and “gassy”.

It can happen at any age but if it seems to be more frequent as you’re getting older it can very well be because of your stomach’s reduced ability to produce enough acid for proper digestion.

Normally, when we eat cells in our stomach release more acid which is important for so many digestive processes like breaking down foods and activating enzymes. As we age this process can become less efficient and the result can feel like it’s wreaking havoc on the rest of the digestive system.

Unfortunately, this can have wide-ranging effects on all of our digestion abilities “downstream” and that can result in bloating.

Are Your Migraines Linked to Gut Issues? In this week’s blog, we are talking about gut health and your gut’s relationship to migraines. I have taught classes on this issue before. Why? Well, I have noticed a direct correlation in my own life between headaches/migraines and gut issues. It’s interesting that there is now new research has shown that migraines may be linked to your gut health.

You may have seen articles and social media posts recently relating to gut issues. We are hearing more and more about this topic lately.

There is now information out there which links the cause of some migraines to “gut hyperpermeability” (higher than normal permeability of the gut or a blood vessel — permeability being how easily liquid and gas passes through something). This is a condition that has also been dubbed as “leaky gut syndrome.”
