Holiday Gut Rescue by Rona Recker


Deck the Halls with Bowels of Holly…

There are a lot of people who suffer from intestinal discomfort, duress…and let’s just say it…diarrhea. It can be difficult to talk about, very stressful and even embarrassing.


Would you like to know some underlying reasons causing it? If we follow the philosophy that our mind dictates what our body does, then every thought sends electrical impulses to your body constantly, giving it messages. If you are having contrary thoughts, those get sent out to your body as well.


If we also follow the philosophy that we all have an inner guidance system, or intuition, then ideally, that would be where we want to get our answers from. This philosophy would be called Spirit, Mind, Body because you get intuition (Spirit) that your mind (Mind) has to translate and then it goes out to your body (Body).


So, back to some underlying reasons. Everyone is different, so there really isn’t a standard answer for everyone, which is why I’m going to list some reasons below as well as what to do for them.


To make it simple…here are the 3 top reasons:

1.       You are worrying because you are not making decisions in a timely manner.

2.       You hate confrontations and you are not having the conversations you need to that are honest and healing.

3.       You take on too much and are carrying energy for people you care about when you don’t want them to ‘suffer.’


You worry a lot

What do you need? You need more supportive people in your life that you can reach out to who can uplift you and offer your support to help you move forward. We can’t do this life by ourselves…

What to do in the moment of stress:

Write down what you are worried about. And write down all the decisions you need to make or are afraid to make. Then, next to your worry, who would be a good person/resource to be able to give you the answer/information you need? Do you have to research your topic? Who has your best interests at heart who can also help with this decision? Then, follow through with it…make your decisions and hold firm to them. (And when you worry, reaffirm within yourself or with your support people).


You hate confrontations

What do you need? Take the course, Understanding Emotional Patterns to help you through this. When we don’t ‘confront’ things as they come up for us…eventually, they become confrontations (and those really suck…). This course helps you through that.

What to do in the moment of stress:

You are allowed to feel whatever it is you are feeling. Do your best not to feel bad when you feel a negative emotion. Allow yourself to speak about it, knowing that you want to move through that feeling so that you can feel better.


You take on too much

What do you need? Ideally, a Wellness Treatment. But if you can’t do that, you have the option of taking Embracing your Truth to help with balanced boundaries or concentrate on your spiritual connection to ‘give back’ what you have taken on.


What to do in the moment of stress:

Who are you worrying about? Are they doing what they need to move forward? If yes, trust their soul to keep moving forward. But usually, this isn’t the case…instead, they are not doing what they need to in order to move forward. Determine if they are open and willing to move themselves forward. If they are not, then lovingly allow them to learn the hard way. And be open to them when they become open.


My hope is that you feel healthy this holiday season and enjoy your life as it unfolds. If not, don’t be too hard on yourself. Spend time taking care of yourself and do things that will help you feel better that will also move your life forward. Find the connections with people that are fulfilling – and spend your time there!
