Gut Health is critical to overall health and an individual’s recovery from substance use disorders and mental health disorders. The gut houses over 70% of our immune system and makes over 2/3 of our body’s serotonin, the neurochemical credited with our well-being.

In addition, stress impacts gut health directly. So how do we address the health of our most important system? Of course, what we eat is crucial but also just as important is HOW we eat.

Mindful eating is a multifold strategy backed by scientific evidence to help us not only manage food cravings and our emotions but also to improve our overall gut health. We often use food as a way to distract ourselves from our life challenges or numb our uncomfortable emotions.

With this strategy, we learn how to use food as way to arrive into our life and stop escaping it. Learning the science and strategies related to mindful eating is crucial for any health care professional both as way to address gut health but also to better manage food choices and cravings.
