Our gut is absolutely central to health and overall wellbeing.

The term gut basically refers to digestion. Digestion is important for breaking down food into nutrients, which the body uses and absorbs for energy, growth, and cell repair. Food and liquid must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before the blood absorbs them and carries them to cells throughout the body.

Struggling with digestion is the worst. Symptoms of digestive stress include bloating, gas, constipation, fatigue, bad skin... low libido, etc

👉Fortunately, these can be reduced by a few minor lifestyle modifications:

🏃‍♀️ Consistent exercise will help food move through your body and keep you regular. Mix it up with weights, cardio, and steps.

💧Keep hydrated! Opt for 3L per day. Drink AROUND food - Drink 20 mins before and 20 mins after. Water dilutes gastric juices that are vital for the break down of food and nutrients. Water aids digestion and flushes waste from the intestine.

🥙🍠 Eat real food with limited distraction! Eat foods in their most natural form (whole foods). Eat slowly and enjoy meal times. This will allow you to properly break down your food and acknowledge when you are approaching fullness.

🌾🥛Gluten and dairy are usually huge culprits. Try an elimination diet by cutting them out for a week or two and see how good your body feels. You will be surprised. Your body will love you for it❤️

🥦🍏Consume fiber, probiotic-rich, and fermented foods! Fiber boosts good bacteria and aids digestions. Add Dark Leafy Greens at every meal. Greens are anti-inflammatory.

🧘‍♀️ DE-STRESS. Our gut and the digestive system basically freeze when we are stressed – Be aware of how stressed you are and how frequent. Learn to control it and be sure to have some downtime.

💊 Supplements are not quick fixes but they can aid in helping you repair your gut and improve digestion. I recommend L-glutamine and probiotics but it’s best to chat with someone as we are all different. @doctorearthbj

Being a personal trainer I’m in the gym all day most days so my energy output is pretty high compared to most. My long term goal at the moment is to compete at IFBB in the bikini division in October next year, so at the moment, being in off season my trainings all about GROWTH. Building up my glutes, hamstrings, upper back and shoulders to create the X shape that the judges look for on the day. I ride my bike the 15 minutes to and from Surry hills everyday to get my body moving before my first client, I also don’t like public transport much and who wouldn’t want to be able to eat a bit more due to the extra output! I also do my strength training 5 days a week which consists of 3 leg focused days and 2 upper body days. My gym, Fitness Playground also offers Pilates and yoga so I try and get in to one of those a week to ground me a bit.

The Wilshin sisters finally join forces!
The Wilshin sisters finally join forces!

Bianca and Yasmin Wilshin are two passionate creatives from Newport Beach in Sydney. Both determined high-school graduates who completed their university degrees at UTS, Yasmin majoring in finance and Bianca in Marketing (Ying and Yang!, right?!). Whilst completing their degrees, Bianca set up The Hessian Collection, a swimwear business that had been a dream of theirs for many years. Since graduating, they’ve both accumulated work experience in their fields, however, Bianca’s business has also gained major traction, particularly amongst Sydney’s northern beaches ladies. So their decision to leave their full-time 9 to 5 jobs, and create a unique swimmer company together has been an inevitable outcome.

These twins have worked extremely hard to end up where they are today, but they certainly aren’t stopping here. The rebranding of Bianca’s business, The Hessian Collection, to a company owned by both twins now called Archie and Wolf represents a new unified phase for the brand. With both sisters focusing on the brand, the sky really is their limit. Stay tuned!

Working towards your neutral posture, as I mentioned above, promotes balance within the opposing muscle groups and leads to the muscular and skeletal system working free of dysfunction. Meaning that when one muscle group is too short, it creates a lengthening effect on the opposing muscle groups. Eventuating in these lengthened muscles to working overtime to bring the body back to neutral because the shortened muscles have pulled the body out of this neutral alignment.
