Hidden Gems: Meet Carley Smith of Fairy Gutmother

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carley Smith.

Hi Carley, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I became interested in health and nutrition after using food as medicine emphasizing gut health to reverse my Lyme disease. I became so empowered in the progress in my healing from diet and lifestyle changes that I went back to school to study nutrition and start my business, Fairy Gutmother, so I could spread this information and help others.

I am passionate about helping people eat healthier and making nourishing and delicious recipes everyone can enjoy. I have been featured on the Dr. Oz Show, Denver’s Fox News, Arizona Family TV, Better Connecticut, and NBC Miami as well as a frequent guest on Denver’s hit iHeart radio show, the Modern Eater. My articles and recipes have been featured in worldwide publications. I also lead workshops and retreats centered around the gut health lifestyle.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Fairy Gutmother?
I am a Nutritional Therapist and certified GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Practitioner and Certified Yoga Instructor.

I work with individuals to help restore the health of their gut through diet and lifestyle changes. I also lead workshops and retreats centered around the gut health lifestyle.

I recently launched my online Wellness Course available on my website which includes a customizable diet plan clinically proven to optimize the health of the gut. Throughout my course, I teach you about the gut, the best foods that boost gut health as well as how to prepare them, and a few lifestyle tips to support the gut.

We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
The foundation for our health is located in the gut where nearly the entire immune system resides. Therefore, one of the best ways to stay healthy is by supporting the gut! This means including foods that optimize the microbiome like fiber, which feeds the good bacteria, as well as nutrients that heal the gut lining like bone broth. Also, clinical research shows that stress is just as damaging to the gut as junk food so making sure you’re incorporating time for self-care and stress management is key.

It’s also equally as important to make sure you are avoiding the foods the negatively impact the health of the gut like processed foods and sugar. An excess of these foods can promote pathogens in the gut as well as weaken the gut lining.
