Imagine your gut healed…what would that look like?
As I was thinking about this post, the original title and concept was, “imagine your life healed.”
The thoughts, ideas, and inspiration for the post came from a purely emotional state. It was an emotional state I remembered from about 3 1/2 years ago when I wrote The Emotional Side of Illness.
Being on the other side, I can now provide you something else – the ability to imagine your life healed.
I settled on imagine your gut healed because that comes first.
Heal your gut. Heal your life.
Imagine Your Gut Healed

You wake up. You’re no longer concerned if that first bite is going to set you off for the day. Instead, you enjoy breakfast, whatever your darling heart desires. And then you simply move on with the day.
You finally get to enjoy dinner out with friends and being able to freely order off the menu. You’re no longer trying to make 1,001 excuses for why you can’t go out and enjoy a great evening.
Stepping into the dressing room at Target (no shame!), slipping on a pair of jeans (not leggings this time), and feeling zero pressure against your abdomen. Darling – just stop here for a second. Let that sink in.
I know all about that feeling. I used to refer to it as, “the gremlins pushing against my stomach.” You feel me there? Someday, you won’t have to consider unbuttoning those pants.
Supplements and Medications
Right now, the supplements and medications are like a part-time job. But imagine when you’re down to a couple/few supplements only, used strictly for their intended purpose: supplementation. And imagine only needing to focus on 1-2 (or even zero!) medications. I mean, what will you do with all that extra time and money?!
Yes, darling, yes. You will forever be at the place where you fall into the left-side of this graphic.

All Those Tears
Right now, I know what your days are like. They are seemingly wonderful until all the sudden you feel miserable. You either can’t stop running to the bathroom or you’re bloated and miserable. In an instant, the day has changed, tears pour from your eyes.
Imagine that the tears are still there, only far less frequently, and only when you reflect on the new life you’re living.
Trust Me, I Know
Believe me when I say that I know what both sides of the coin look like.
Super old picture, but here you go:
