About Becky Bell, RD

Becky Bell is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, pastor’s wife, and mom of 3 crazy kiddos. Her passion is to help others develop a way of eating and living that leads to freedom and authentic living.

Becky is a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and He is the reason she does what she does. She has seen in her own life that the way she treats her body affects her mind and spirit, and vice versa.

Her goal is to help you find relief from the digestive symptoms that are holding you hostage so that you can feel confident and energized to pursue your goals and dreams. Becky believes that your health shouldn’t be what keeps you from being the best version of yourself!

Becky has a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from Olivet Nazarene University and a Master of Science in Human Nutrition from the University of Alabama. She is also trained as a Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider and Certified L.E.A.P. Therapist.

Identifying Negative Beliefs Around Food

We hear a lot about the gut-brain connection. Our thoughts affect how well our gut functions. But Becky feels that it goes beyond this. Our bodies respond to our thoughts and beliefs more than many realize. Believing that we will always be sick and never heal can lead to just that outcome.

Becky helps her clients overcome their fears around food that can lead to this. She starts by helping them identify negative beliefs around food. This has to be an intentional process. You can’t simply decide to think differently. Becky explains how she helps people change the narrative in their minds to make this needed shift.


How Faith Plays a Part in Healing

We also talk about the role of religious faith in Becky’s work. As a Christian, she sees how sharing a spiritual aspect with her clients brings a huge sense of freedom and possibility. 

All of our actions and habits are rooted in our beliefs. Many times, there is a past trauma behind these beliefs. Becky sees the value of developing new coping strategies, whether spiritually-based or not, that help us take control over our narrative. With these, we can implement healthy eating habits that result in healing.

“When you heal the gut and really bring the gut into alignment, your energy, mood, and so many things about your life get better.” [4:05]

“I don’t believe that there is such a thing as failure. You can’t fail at food. Everything is a learning experience.” [18:09]

“We can’t get away from the fact that food is emotional. Food is comfort. Food is connection. It’s all of those things but it can’t be the only thing we use for comfort and relief.” [30:25]
