Episode 237: Are PEMF Mats a Valuable Healing Tool or Waste of Money?

Jul 09, 2024

 

When you see the laundry list of health benefits you can experience from a PEMF mat, you can't help but feel your inner skeptic peering around the corner to investigate. 

I myself have a strong bullshit radar and am extremely wary of wellness fads. But recently I was in a functional nutrition course run by a functional medicine practitioner who I highly respect, and when she mentioned that hypothyroid patients could benefit from the use of a PEMF mat, my ears perked up. 

Believe it or not, I immediately ordered one -...

Episode 223: 4 Foods That Are Hurting Your Thyroid

Jan 23, 2024

In honor of thyroid awareness month, today we're chatting about eating for your thyroid. Or more accurately, what NOT to eat. 

As a Hashimoto's Thyroiditis warrior, this topic is close to my heart. Learning about how nutrition impacts this powerhouse organ was a turning point for me in my healing journey. 

For years I was on thyroid medication, but without the knowledge I'm sharing today, I still struggled with cold hands and feet, stubborn weight, irregular menstrual cycles, and debilitating fatigue.

Episode 210: What Exactly IS 'Functional Nutrition'??

Aug 29, 2023

 Listen In

Summary  

Do you ever feel like your body has turned against you?

I know I have. 

Through hypothyroidism, hashimotos, acne, leaky gut, SIBO, h pylori, mold, candida, and hair loss, my own health journey has felt like a torturous game of wack-a-mole. As soon as one symptom drops off another pops up, and it's been hard not to resent my body for it. 

But if there's one thing I've learned as a functional nutrition practitioner and patient it's this: symptoms, be they fatigue, brain fog,...

Episode 209: From Burnout to Bliss... Holistically Healing Adrenal Fatigue

Aug 22, 2023

Summary  

This episode is for my mom.

Like me, she's dealt with years of mystery health issues. She's gone to countless doctors, tried hundreds of supplements, dozens of diets, and only ever experiences relief for short periods of time. 

But among her many tests, the one that sticks out to me is that her adrenals are absolutely shot. And if there is one thing that will put a halt to any healing, it's burned out adrenals. 

She told me about this months ago, so why am I only just writing this...

Episode 206: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Healing: 9 Powerful Ways Castor Oil Boosts Your Wellbeing

Jul 25, 2023

 Listen In  

Summary  

In the realm of natural remedies, castor oil has long been praised for its therapeutic properties and health benefits. Derived from the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis), it's been used for centuries to treat a wide range of ailments and promote overall well-being.

I'll be honest, there are certain health practices that I've tended to glaze over as a practitioner and castor oil packs have fallen into that category for a long time.

That is until I recently discovered I have...

Summary 

I’ve been a weight loss coach for over a decade. Which means I’ve shared my story of overcoming disordered eating. I’ve shared the story of healing my metabolism. I’ve shared the story of growing up dancing and battling with body image. 

What I haven’t shared (at least not fully) is my 2-decade-long health journey. 

For a long time I thought no one would be interested. I was told by business coaches of my past that...

Episode 201: Holistic Remedies for Seasonal Allergies

Summary 

Spring is in the air and along with it comes a whole lot of pollen leading to runny noses, itchy eyes, rashes, and sneezing... definitely not good prep for a hot girl summer. 

And while I know it can be tempting to just hit those antihistamines all day every day, that comes with its own risks. 

Long term antihistamine use may increase your risk of dementia because of its action on neurotransmitters, and it has been linked to issues like blurred vision, urinary retention, constipation, an...

Summary 

This Cinco De Mayo I decided to go spend some time with my big sister (a fellow holistic health coach). And as we sat and enjoyed absolutely mouthwatering gluten-and-dairy-free burritos and modified margaritas made with just tequila, lemon, lime, and lime la croix, we talked about our clients and the various ways we get them to make lasting change - ya know, typical shop talk.

Want to know our secret? 

It was a strategy we came back to again and again: eating the same...

Summary 

If you know me, you know I am not a fan of deprivation for deprivation's sake when it comes to dieting.

I don't think we should be cutting out foods willy nilly, and I certainly don't think we should cut out entire macronutrients.

However the old adage is true: one person's superfood is another person's poison. And sometimes there are certain foods that cause a reaction in our body that prevents us from looking or feeling our best.

And the only way to truly know what those foods are is through an...

Summary 

I have a confession to make...

I am a holistic health coach and I have always struggled with maintaining a regular meditation practice. 

Even though I know the endless benefits proven by study after study (which we cover in depth in this episode). 

Even though I've always had a gut feeling nudging me towards more intentional meditation.

Even though I've experienced the benefits of doing meditation-like activities like going on long walks, coloring, and yoga.
