Heal the Relationship Between Your Food & Your Mood

Will Cole, IFMCP, DNM, DC

Changing what you eat can lower stress, remove the negative effects of food shame, and balance your emotions so you feel a whole lot better.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

Will Cole, IFMCP, DNM, DC, teaches you how your body directly affects your mood. Hint: the gut plays a role, but there are other factors too. Through treating thousands of patients, Dr. Cole developed new ideas involving both psychology and biology that you can use in your daily life.

He’s an expert in finding the underlying factors of chronic disease and challenges the labeling of “fitness” as a masculine industry and “wellness” as a feminine industry. His newest book, “Gut Feelings: Healing the Shame-Fueled Relationship Between What You Eat and How You Feel,” encourages you to be aware of the link between what you eat and how it makes you feel.

“Patients often struggle with the idea that you cannot heal a body you hate—you cannot obsess your way into health,” he says.

Dr. Cole explains the connection between physical and emotional health and introduces you to the term “shameflammation.” It’s how stress and shame can cause gut inflammation and sabotage your health. Additionally, problems with your gut often show up as mood swings, anxiety, and food cravings. He offers a framework to better understand your gut-brain connection and solutions to help you heal.

“Gut Feelings” gives you 50 healing recipes; dietary prescriptions founded on flexibility and awareness; and mindfulness techniques to strengthen your intuition and discover your priorities.

“Continuing to eat foods that don't love you back is like staying in this toxic relationship and wondering why you're still miserable.”
