The Role of Nutrition in Supporting the highly sensitive overall well-being
Hey there, let's talk about the impact of nutrition on your journey as a HSP.  Research suggests maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet is essential for everyone. But for that highly sensitive person, proper nutrition takes on a different connotation.

I am not a big eater, but I do love my food.  That being said though, I am extremely cautious about what I put between my lips.  And I am very much aware of my nutritional needs that I will share with you.  Hopefully,  this will help you too.

  1. I have to eat regular meals.  If I don’t start off the day with a good breakfast with protein and grains, I can get very lightheaded, jittery, anxious, and drained.  Oh what a horrible feeling that is.
  2. I always since I was a kid loved veggies.  Turnips, carrots, yams, potatoes.  These foods are rich in vitamins, minerals, protein, and carbohydrates.  These vitamins help to control the food intake needed by the body.  Therefore,  body weight stays stable and balanced.
  3. Nutrient dense foods such as whole vegetables, fruits, cocoa, seafood, eggs, and liver are so rich in nutrients.  I never feel hungry when I eat these foods.
  4. Even though I eat well, I have to take supplements like B Vitamins as my system really lacks Vitamin B.  Stress/anxiety can really deplete vitamins like Vitamin B and magnesium.
  5. Knowing that the digestive system can be sensitive to our emotional system,  I have learned to treat my gut very gently.  I only eat all natural food.
  6. We must eat at regular intervals as the blood sugar levels could be compromised.
  7. So, we really are what we eat.  When we are aware of our systems, what we are all about, what our system needs/wants choosing the right foods for proper nutrition, we are providing the essentials for the proper functioning of our nervous system.
I hope you are having a great weekend!
