I can help you gain control of your life and your chronic debilitating symptoms.
As a gastroenterologist with over 15 years of clinical experience, I have worked with thousands of patients with a multitude of chronic gastrointestinal and liver conditions ranging from acid reflux, chronic abdominal pain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Fatty liver, obesity, and colon cancer. I know first hand how these conditions negatively impact your quality of life and can leave you feeling anxious, stressed and scared. You can spiral out of control, feeling even more depressed and hopeless.
Unfortunately within the time constraints of the medical system, it is difficult to address the multitude of factors that might be exacerbating your chronic gut issues. Further, at an individual level, you have your own lived experience, personal characteristics and default thinking which are contributing to your symptoms. It is very likely that you are living in a chronically stressed state, as you are living through the current pandemic, are dealing with socioeconomic, environmental, and political issues, and have your own daily healthcare issues. You likely also have characteristics of putting others first, people pleasing, being a high achiever and perhaps even being a perfectionist.

✓ Live your best fulfilled life.

The latest research shows that the mind and the body are strongly correlated and send signals bi-directionally.
The more stressed you are, the more your gastrointestinal symptoms will flare and contribute to your decreased quality of life. Also when your gastrointestinal symptoms are out of control, your brain will release powerful hormones and neurotransmitters that increase your brain’s stress response.
So, whether your brain or body feels stressed, your fight and flight sympathetic response remains “on'', resulting in gut symptoms that are out of control. You might also feel frustrated, angry, anxious and hopeless about your chronic medical condition or symptoms, which inadvertently is keeping your brain stuck in a fearful, hypervigilant and hopeless state.
The unintentional consequences are that you circulate more stress hormones, reinforce negative beliefs, amplify pain neural pathways, neglect self-care, can make unhealthy food choices which all decrease the ability of your microbiome (AKA: gut flora) to function optimally. This negative cycle then exacerbates your chronic gastrointestinal symptoms of acid reflux, diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pain.
Through my Mind-Body Resiliency Program, you will learn:
What your default beliefs are which may be amplifying your chronic gastrointestinal symptoms.
How to process your feelings and sensations even in just a few minutes through somatic and grounding exercises.
How to create boundaries and let go of others expectations for you.
How to plan your day to create daily successes which may include adjusting your diet, and meal planning ahead of time.
How to regulate your nervous system and retrain your brain to create neural pathways of safety, less fear and release all or none thinking.
How to reclaim your joy again through prioritizing you and choosing self-care.
What goals are important for you during our time together.
“As someone who has suffered with IBS, GERD, and gastritis for over a decade, I struggled for a long time to manage my symptoms. While some medications and other treatments helped, I would still feel very anxious when experiencing a “flare up”, and that would exacerbate my symptoms. Dr. Cecilia Minano’s supportive and compassionate coaching helped me to recognize that I had the power to support myself, and handle my discomfort much more effectively. By learning to be self-compassionate, using different tools to regulate my nervous system, and practicing empowering thoughts when I felt uncertain, I have been able to navigate my symptoms with much less anxiety. I’m so pleased that she is sharing these tools with others that have digestive challenges and helping improve the quality of life for her clients.”
