How to Look, Breathe, and Chew with Robyn Youkilis (Podcast 85)

Healing your gut is no small task…

It involves re-engineering your entire life, everything from the food you eat, to the supplements you take, all the way to how much sleep you get.

But no matter what gut-healing “diet” you’re on, or whatever gut-repair supplements you’re taking, there’s one more critical piece of the puzzle.

And if you don’t incorporate this into your healing journey, you’ll never fully recover.

That tool?

The powerful connection between your gut and your mind.

This is why I’m so excited I got to sit down with my friend, Robyn Youkilis, and chat about this with her.

I love Robyn for her slightly-sassy, no-nonsense tips and her amazing recipes. Plus, she makes this whole healthy living thing look like a total party. (Don’t believe me? Go check out her Instagram – this girl bounces from workouts to TV appearances to Coachella to Turkey, all while having FUN.)

Is Leaky Gut Making You Sicker?


We talked about this ‘missing gut-health tool’ in-depth, including the what, why, and (the seemingly-elusive) how of creating a truly healthy connection with your gut.

Robyn shared the simple, yet effective, lessons that are the core of this missing tool, such as “Breathe,” “Chew,” “Eat,” “Drink,” “Shop,” and “Shed.”

By the end of this podcast, you’ll have specific tips to improve your mind-body connection and change the relationship you have with your gut…

And hopefully incorporate this missing tool along with everything else you’re already doing to heal your gut.
