ABOUT THIS EPISODE –
Today we discuss the relationship between your gut and your confidence. I am delighted to be joined International Best Selling Author, Katherine Brook-MacKenzie.
“Our gut is like a guardian angel for us, really. And it gives us lots of information about you know, whether we’re safe, it gives us information about what’s going on around us. And I think it will keep us in line with like our true nature, if you like it keeps us in alignment with who we’ve come to be. So that’s one way of looking at it in terms of confidence, because of course when we are when we were being ourselves, then we’re just naturally confident.”
Her book is called ‘Let That SH*T GO – 31 Things To Do If You Want A Better Poo’. Katherine is a highly experienced practitioner in the field of holistic gut health. She runs The Healthy Gut Clinic in Chippenham, Wiltshire where she has helped 1000s of clients to regain their comfort and confidence with the refreshing new approach to starting at the bottom.
Katherine believes “Confidence comes from a persistent application of courage, finding where you are on the edge of what’s comfortable recognising that you’re scared, recognising that that’s what fear feels like. And then just carrying on, and, you know, sometimes, like some days, that can be an easy thing to do. And other days, you have to really pull yourself up by your bootstraps”
In this episode we talk about how your daily toilet habits affect your confidence, ‘toilet mapping’ and Katherine shares openly how her experience of colonic irrigation gave her a new lease of life.
Katherine shares a truly transformational story us. I sum it up:
“you’ve turned it around Katherine you’ve gone from someone who had childhood trauma, as you said yourself, the sex and drugs and rock and roll, you know, you had an epiphany moment and you’ve turned it around. And here you are with, you know, a thriving business, a thriving business serving people because that’s what you’re doing, you’re serving people, you’re you’re getting out this message that we all need to hear because we all have a gut we all need to go to the toilet “
This episode is funny, touching, honest and heartfelt. It’s full of inspiration as well as practical advice covering a topic that a lot of people shy away from.

Katherine leaves us with sound words of wisdom –
“ Play to your strengths because it’s too easy for us to take for granted what we are naturally gifted at. We only tend to value what’s the cost of something or what we studied for and we overlook what’s natural for us. So dig deep into yourself. Find out what your natural strengths are and play to those”
