Welcome to Episode 64; Preparing Your Body for Rebalancing and Opening Your Drainage Pathways
If you are thinking about rebalancing your microbiome this episode is for you. Maybe you have already done a rebalance kit for yourself or your child? Maybe this is the first episode of the Follow Your Gut Podcast that you have ever listened to? Either way, this is going to be a really powerful listen for you.
My Women’s and Children’s Rebalance Kits have been specially designed to help you and your children eliminate bad bacteria, yeast, parasites, and fungus while restoring the beneficial microbiome in your gut. Before starting this transformative experience, it is powerful to prepare your body by opening and enhancing drainage pathways. In this episode, I'll teach you about the importance of drainage and share valuable tips to ensure you're fully prepared to make the most of your Rebalance Kit. If you have completed a Rebalance previously without the awareness of opening your pathways, this is a beautiful invitation to rebalance again. Regularly rebalancing has so many benefits. If you want to learn more about how often to rebalance and all the benefits please listen to episode 47.
So! As you get ready to rebalance your gut bacteria, it's important to grasp the importance of drainage pathways. These pathways act as the body's natural detoxification system, ensuring toxins and waste are efficiently removed from your system. By focusing on opening and supporting these pathways, you enhance the effectiveness of the Rebalance Kits and promote optimal gut health.
Now I am going to share my top ten tips for enhancing your drainage and then we will go over how long you should practice these tips and a general guideline to help you personalize your rebalancing plan:
- My number one tip dry Brushing incorporate dry brushing into your daily routine. This is the practice that involves using a dry brush with stiff bristles to gently brush your skin while it's dry without the use of water or any liquid. This technique has been used for centuries in various cultures as a way to promote skin health, improved circulation, and support the body's natural detoxification process. Besides promoting healthy skin, dry brushing stimulates your lymphatic system, facilitating the elimination of toxins and waste from your body through your skin. This is a really beautiful one and I'm actually in the show notes I'll share a link with you from my favorite dry brush that I use myself and my children.
- My second tip. Focus on your hydration. Stay well hydrated by drinking lots of filtered water throughout the day. Adequate water intake supports kidney function, helping to flush out toxins and maintain balanced gut flora. You want to aim to drink between 80 to 96oz of water a day while draining your pathways. This is a lot of water for children. You just want to be intentional about making sure they are drinking a lot of water and breastfeeding really frequently. If they are breastfeeding, get creative. Do things like put frozen berries in their water. Get creative, make water fun, and drink a lot of it all the time. You should really drink a lot of water all the time, especially while draining your pathways and while rebalancing your gut. I know that many of you are here because you are rebalancing your infant's gut. You mama should be doing all of these tips for yourself while healing your child. Whether you're doing the rebalance for yourself or not, if you are healing your infant who is breastfeeding, you want to practice all these tips for yourself and for your child. If your infant isn't consuming foods yet, they're not really drinking water. They're exclusively breastfeeding. Breastfeed a lot. Drink a lot of water yourself. Okay?
- Third tip. epsom salt baths. Treat yourself and your child to daily Epsom salt baths. The magnesium in Epsom salt not only relaxes your body, but also AIDS in drawing out toxins, easing the detoxification process. Get in the tub with your child, relax and let the Epsom salt do its magic.
- Fourth tip, celery juice kickstarts your morning with fresh celery juice. It contains antioxidants and antiinflammatory properties that promote gut health and support your liver in its detoxification process. You don't need anything fancy, just a blender and a strainer. I just throw in a head of celery with 24oz of water. Blend, strain and drink. Let it be easy.
- Fifth, sweat Engage in activities that induce sweating, such as low impact exercise, hot yoga, and spending time in a sauna. Sweating is a natural way for your body to release toxins and impurities, facilitating your natural detoxification process. But you want to be gentle on your body, so you don't want to go do really rigorous exercises. So it's kind of finding a balance of how can you get your body to sweat without pushing your body too hard? Because you want to nurture this fine balance of detoxifying in your body while also really offering it so much support.
- Cold Plunges Consider incorporating cold plunges or contrast showers into your daily routine. The cold temperature stimulates blood circulation and can boost the Lymphatic system, enhancing your drainage. Contrast showers mean changing it hot to cold.
- Eliminate processed foods and refined sugars. You are going to do this throughout your whole rebalance journey. Go ahead and get started now.
- Incorporate herbal teas. These are going to help because these teas such as dandelion root and ginger teas, have detoxifying properties and they will help flush out toxins to help drain your pathways.
- Mindful Breathing: prioritize practices like deep breathing and meditation, and gentle yoga. Chronic stress can block your drainage pathways, so make sure you are taking care of your mind and your body.
- Lastly, sleep and rest. Ensure that you are getting quality sleep and rest. I know this can be hard if you are one of the many mamas here who have a young child who's experiencing a gut imbalance, sleep is pretty hard. Sleep when you can and sleep deeply. Do everything you can to set your environment up for you to have the best rest that you can. I just saw this reel on Instagram. It was saying the worst parenting advice is sleep when your child sleeps. And it was so funny. It was this woman, like, you know, her baby's in the car, sleeping while they're driving, and so the woman pulls over on the side of the freeway and whips out a pillow and falls asleep. And just how impractical that advice is, which is so true, especially if you are a mama to multiple children. My invitation here is to do whatever you can to get the rest that is available to you. Okay? So here are some general guidelines to consider so you can create your own personalized healing plan for yourself or for your child.
In most cases, it's wise to spend at least one week focusing on opening your drainage pathways before starting your gut rebalance. During this time, you can incorporate the tips that I just shared, and I would personally begin incorporating these tips right after you purchase your rebalance kit. While you wait for your kit to arrive in the mail, you can begin preparing your body. This period allows your body to adjust and prepare for the rebalancing process so you are ready when your kit arrives. Next, listen to your body. Pay close attention to how your body, how your baby's body, how your child's body responds during the drainage preparation phase, everyone's tolerance to detoxifying practices vary. So listen to your body's signals and be gentle on yourself and your child. Is your baby extra fussy? Plan your day accordingly. Experiencing headaches, consider an alternative to Ibuprofen, like the balanced CBD you can find in my shop that nurtures your healing process rather than masking your symptoms. Set yourself up to succeed while also letting it be easy. Don't overcomplicate the process in your mind. Don't find all the reasons why you can't do it or why it's too hard. Look for the ways that you can ease the process. Focus on nourishing foods, adequate hydration, and late exercise to encourage your body's detoxification pathways. 1s Lastly, monitor your progress throughout your draining of your pathways and also throughout your rebalance.
Observe how your body responds to these drain practices. If you notice improvements in your energy levels, digestion, and overall well being, get excited. For all that's to come from the full gut rebalance. I cannot wait for you to experience it. It is going to change your life.
