Much of how we’re living feels untethered and wobbly. What a wonderful thing to be a bit of solid ground amid the flapping.

I’ve found all I need to do is take the first step – commit, show up. And my path unfurls from there.

Eat yoghurt and fermented stuff. I don’t make and consume sauerkraut because it looks all quaint on social media. I do so because pretty conclusive evidence suggests that probiotic foods improve gut health.

Take some supplements. I’m not going to wade too heavily into this realm, except to say that you might want to see a good integrative doctor, nutritionist or naturopath with a sound understanding of endocrinology to get some tests done and advice on where you might need support. Many of us are deficient in magnesium, since our food is grown in magnesium-­depleted soil. But evidence also shows it’s a boon for calming us. Take an Epsom salt bath or try magnesium citrate or a topical magnesium gel. Vitamin D is worth looking into, ditto vitamin B6 and vitamin C. And zinc. And having your thyroid levels tested. I could go on. But it’s best you go on this journey with someone qualified.
