Our Guest today is Elyse Comerford – Integrative Nutritionist and Certified GAPS Practitioner, Holistic Health Coach, Exercise Scientist, Keynote Speaker, Mentor, and most importantly, a mother!
In today’s episode Elyse shares her health journey with Leah and Holly Jean and does some myth busting on some misconceptions about the GAPS diet. It’s not as big and scary as some people would like to you believe. Spoiler alert: the benefits diet pros can outweigh the cons; the truth lies in the context of bio-individuality and unique healing needs.
The conversation also gets personal as we discuss the pressure of motherhood and our experiences with mom shaming. We think you will enjoy hearing about the importance of self care and the relationships we cultivate to support us in nourishing our bodies and souls.
We wrap up this episode with a chat about how nutrition has changed over the last three decades, including probiotics and the microbiome, whole food diets, omega 3 fatty acids, and the rise of nutrition information in the age of the internet.
