Maintaining a healthy digestion system is a challenge with the crazy busy schedules we have these days. The last few months I have had a lot going on and often that leads to a stressed me. This means my digestion can get wonky. I know what you might be thinking – that I’ve been living this lifestyle for so long, and I have this all figured out – but I am human too. In my practice, I teach people how to listen to their body and what to do when they feel wonky too.
Feeling like your digestion is making too much noise? Gurgle. Gurgle.For me, I get dry skin and start to have belly bloat. So many of my clients say they have belly bloat even when they do not eat, something that is actually not uncommon for people with digestive issues.
Stress inflames the intestinal lining and disrupts the good balance of bacteria in the gut.

This is what happened to me. It was time to restore and rebuild on the quick.
Feel like you are passing gas too much?
Feel exhausted for no reason?
Time to rebuild and restore your gut health with this smoothie.
Every time I am feeling off, I keep it simple: smoothies, juices, and easy-to-digest soups.

- 1/4 green apple
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup coconut water

What about simply eating yogurt regularly? Doesn’t yogurt help with the digestive system? I’ve been very fortunate to have what I suppose is a very healthy digestive system. I know lots of people that have to be very careful about what they eat.
I could never eat Yogurt I blow up like a balloon from any type of dairy. 🙁 I love Yogurt, too. A lot of the Yogurt on the market is heavily processed and does not carry the amount of beneficial bacteria that you would think.
This sounds like an amazing recipe!
My family has a history of stomach problems and I unfortunately inherited it. So I am constantly looking for more natural remedies.
I think I’m gonna give this a try, but I might have to cut out the pineapple and lemon since it seems to be to acidic for me. My acid reflux is a pain!
Is there anything else that I can substitute them with? Or is this smoothy not a good choice for someone like me?
Also I love your site and all of the amazing posts you have. Bookmarked!
So sorry you too inherited stomach issues, too. Even though Lemons are acidic they are very alkalizing to the body. Have you looked into Mastic gum for your acid reflux. My daughter had it really bad where she couldn’t drink with dinner. Our naturopath put her on mastic gum for for 3 months and then once a year as maintenance for 2 months. He also had her take manuka honey in chamomile tea daily. Pineapple has bromelain which is a huge part of digestion.
