Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
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,...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
The practice of...
Have you ever experienced symptoms that you couldn't explain?
Has a doctor ever prescribed you medicine to mask your symptoms without really knowing the cause?
Have you ever had the joy of dealing with adult acne, eczema, psoriasis, diarrhea, fatigue, bloating, constipation, thyroid issues, autoimmune diseases, bloating, headaches, foggy headedness, PCOS, food sensitivities, diabetes, joint pain, and/or other inflammatory conditions?
Believe it or not, it could all be pointing back to your gut. Your ...
Times are scary and uncertain at the moment, but now is not the time to focus on all the things we can't control. Now is the time to double down on the things we can: our health, our mindset, and our habits.
Which is why today I'm sharing 10 steps you can take to improve all 3, and give your immune system a boost in the process.
Fitness works on numerous fronts to help your immune system. It increases white blood cells, reduces the stress hormone cortisol, and it may help...
