Real Health Conversations
Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by Holly Jean Mullen, FNTP and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition and health science, expressing many different points of view.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.


In this episode, Holly Jean and Leah review their favorite moments from most recent previous episodes.

Breathing, digestion, and stress management go hand-in-hand! This week’s article is a look at how belly breathing could be the key to better digestion. Deep belly breathing can actually massage the contents of the gut helping move food through the body for better elimination. Tune in to hear more about this and tips on a non cost method that is essential to life!

When we activate the diaphragm with breath, it creates a gentle massaging action for internal organs like the intestines and stomach. In doing so, it can reduce abdominal pain, urgency, bloating, and constipation.

Diaphragmatic breathing, or deep breathing, does not take much more effort than standard breathing and is one of the best things you can do to help with digestion.
