Now that you've healed your body, the next step is getting to know your gut.
Reintroduction is all about taking time to listen to your body and give it the nourishment and movement it needs.
During the reintroduction period, the protocol slowly guides your gut so that you can find what foods are optimal for your body.
It identifies hidden food sensitivities or allergies with also adding in physical movement.
These are potential signs that certain food may not be compatible with your microbiome.
Start by adding in one new food every day. In order to pinpoint which food is your trigger, it is important to stick to the level 1 recommended foods as closely as possible on reintroduction days.
Any non-processed food is a good choice, think anything that doesn't come in a bag, a box, or a bottle. Aim for whole, clean foods that make you feel your best.
Your body is now ready for the challenge, your internal inflammation has been lowered.
Start by adding in more minutes of movement of your choice.
Find activities that get your body moving without thinking of it as a “workout” like playing basketball, swimming, or brisk walking on a sunny day.
Then slowly start increasing the frequency of your exercise to 4 to 5 times a week. Exercise not only strengthens your muscles, lungs, and bones but can also aid in gut health by stimulating digestion.
This is your health journey
You get to choose what is the best fit for your body. Take some time to think about your goals and what you would like Level 2 to look like.
