Gut Wellness and the Workplace

Having worked in the corporate world in my first career, I understand and have experienced the demands, stresses, and lifestyle that most people in this environment undergo. Long working hours, early or late-night travel, deep mental focus demanding lots of energy, and meeting unreasonable deadlines are just a few of the stressors we endure. Often, the first casualty of working in this type of environment is care for our physical bodies. We forget to eat (or to eat well), stop breathing deeply,  move/stand up (especially if we are cubicle cowboys, hunched over our computers for hours at a time, most of the day).

It is a fact that 90% of the serotonin (one of several “feel-good” chemical produced by our body) is created and resides in our gut. That means that a happy gut literally translates to an overall happy mood.

One defense against the stresses of the corporate world is to build a healthy gut. Eating fermented foods, which are the original source of probiotics, can help rebuild a healthy gut.

To that end, the mission of my second career emerged. I am passionate about bringing ancient nutritional wisdom back into modern life. Just as important to me is integrating concepts into communities and cross-pollinating tribal knowledge from one to another. Whether it’s the homesteading, DIY, permaculture, foodie, yoga, corporate, startup, psychotherapy, spiritual, or any other communities, we all have to learn from and teach each other. I am dedicated to connecting communities to continue the virtuous cycle of learning and teaching.
