Did you know that your gut is comprised of billions and billions of bacteria that make up your microbiome? These bacteria help regulate your mood by communicating via the enteric nervous system with your vagus nerve. A healthy microbiome results in happier and more stable moods, and when you are in a state of dysbiosis (aka your microbiome is out of wack) it can cause depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more!

Every decision is a "yes" or a "no" in regards to the future you long for. Being an essentialist is about making choices that guide you towards your ultimate YES and limit those NO distractions. For a long time I taught my medical students about the wisdom of creating our futures with an essentialist focus and one day one of my quite perceptive students said: "But Dr. Cain... you teach, see patients, own a supplement company, are writing a book,redesigning the mental health curriculum at SCNM and running the brown bag mentorship program... are you being an essentialist yourself?" Boy did his words hit a note with me. He was totally right. I was spread so thin I didn't have the bandwidth to focus on the future that set my soul on fire. I was so caught up in the day to day projects I was involved in. All meaningful, but they did not all point to my essentialist mission. So I made some huge changes. And boy am I glad I did!! Don't get me wrong-- it is still a work in progress πŸ˜‰ and so I needed this reminder today: Create your future. Start with each yes and each no and with each small step I'm moving in the right direction. πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸ»

We are all worthy of love. You are worthy to live the life of your dreams. You are unique and your life has so much value. No one in existence is just like you, and therefore you have something to offer the world that no one else can. ▫️
When I was a kid I was told things like: "you're never going graduate high school," "you're too sensitive," "you could never be a doctor." Somehow, amazingly, I didn't listen. ▫️
I persevered and forced myself to ignore those negative voices. Sometimes it was harder than others. And they were wrong. ▫️
Not only did I graduate from high school, but I got a masters in clinical psychology, I graduated at the top of my class in medical school and I was selected for an extremely competitive medical residency. Now I have a wonderfully successful and meaningful private practice and consulting business.
▫️
Be careful who you surround yourself by. Every word is a word of love or a word of destruction. Fill your ears with life building messages. Spend time with people who honor you and build you up, with people who see your unique light.
▫️
My "sensitivity" allows me to deeply connect with people and my stubbornness propels me forward and I never stop learning. My Tribe is comprised of sacred souls who deserve to know my inner being, and who inspire me to grow.
▫️
If there are negative voices around you- use their words to motivate and inspire you. And then move on. Do not settle. ▫️
Your life is SO IMPORTANT. So don't wait. Get started living a life that makes your soul burn, today. ▫️

We are our own worst critics. How would your life look different if you removed the glass ceiling and allowed The realm of possibilities in your world to be limitless?

What sets your soul on fire?
For me, it's knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of my patients, consultees, students, and mentees. Helping others realize their life has immeasurable value, and purpose. This is what sets my soul on fire. 
What makes you feel the most alive? What do you look forward to? What are you passionate about? 
Let's explore these things and more, together. πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈπŸ˜Š #beyourtrueyou #bossbabe #FitFam #FitLife #Fitness #FitnessAddict #GutPsychology #GutHealth #LevelUp #FitFuel #GetHealthy #HealthyLife #HealthTalk #EatClean #Nutrition #FitFood #YouCanDoIt #TrainHard #NoExcuses #vitalresilience #inspiration #drnicolecain #gutpsychology #naturopathic #love

When we exercise, muscle fibers are torn and the tears result in more growth. Similarly, the stressors and challenges in our lives can give us space to grow and become stronger. If we let it.

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place. ~Paulo Coelho

There is a Taoist story of an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. "Such bad luck," they said sympathetically. "Maybe," the farmer replied. The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. "How wonderful," the neighbors exclaimed.
"Maybe," replied the old man. The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. "Maybe," answered the farmer. The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son's leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. "Maybe," said the farmer.

Nevertheless, she persisted. ~Luke 18 πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Šβ€οΈ
We all experience suffering. It can crumble you or make you stronger. Imagine a flame πŸ”₯: if it is small a breeze will blow it out. But if it is hearty, the breeze will give it strength. How can you build your internal fire so that when there is a wind of suffering, that it will ignite your fire and vitality even more? Some things I do are to pray, hike, spend time with loved ones and mentors, be creative, and serve others. May your fires be bold and your resiliency be strong. May you shine in the face of adversity and captivate your own sense of empowerment.

When the pressure is on, it becomes your time to shine. There is your comfort zone: where things are reliable and you are not pressed beyond your competency. And then there is The Zone of Proximal Development: this is the area right outside of your comfort zone. This is the space where you are pushed to the edge of your limits and are challenged. This is where the magic starts to happen. In the ZPD, you are in the process of becoming. Fun fact: the average person can only sustain about 30 consecutive minutes in the ZPD. So if you are feeling out of your comfort zone, try to balance honoring your boundaries and pushing yourself a little bit more than you might be used to.
