Did you know that there is a direct correlation between thyroid imbalances, bloating, and constipation and our emotions?
Many of my Thyroid Yoga clients, especially women, have a lot of shame surrounding their stomachs and often hold tons of tension there as a result. Abdominal distention occurs when substances, such as air (gas) or fluid, accumulate in the abdomen causing its outward expansion beyond the normal girth of the stomach and waist. Oftentimes this symptom persists chronically as a result of emotional stress and trapped energy in the solar plexus chakra.
I see this trend very often in my clients with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, PCOS, and adrenal fatigue, as bloating and constipation are persistent symptoms. Have you ever thought about the correlation between this tension and the health of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, also known as your gut? The mind and body are more than connected; they are one.
