Form of non-scientific healing
Epstein-Barr Virus is one of the most common human herpes viruses that many people will get at some point in their lives. I'm joined by Dr. Kasia Kines to talk about how to make your body an inhabitable host for the Epstein-Barr Virus. The 3 Worst Offenders When You Have Chronic EBV Intermittent Fasting Exercise Ketogenic Diet About Dr. Kasia Kines Dr. Kines is the CEO and Founder of Global Epstein-Barr Virus Institute, a global leader in recovery therapy for chronic EBV, an Amazon best-selling author of The Epstein-Barr Virus Solution, a wellness expert, and a highly respected doctor of clinical nutrition. She is a graduate of Bastyr University, the "Harvard of Natural Medicine" and its world-acclaimed graduate nutrition program. She was also in the first-ever cohort of a doctorate in functional clinical nutrition from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. Since 2005, Dr. Kines has built an international reputation as a clinical functional nutritionist, from being sought after by Johns Hopkins University to clients globally, to her ground-breaking book about Epstein-Barr Virus. Dr. Kines has developed a proprietary evidence-based methodology and approach to EBV recovery, which is now available to anyone in her highly successful EBV Recovery Program. She also provides professional clinical training to other practitioners in her Clinical EBV Training and Certification Program and EBV Practitioner Workshop. Dr. Kines is a passionate advocate for debunking common misinformation about EBV in the medical community and lectures on this topic extensively. She is on a mission to bring her EBV knowledge and solution to the world globally, so no one needs to suffer needlessly from this misunderstood virus and its complications. What is Epstein-Barr Virus? Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) expert, Dr. Kasia Kines, breaks down what exactly this virus is and how it impacts our bodies and long-term health projections. She explains what some of the typical symptoms of EBV are and what four lab tests you should get checked if you think you have it. Some of the symptoms include feeling tired all the time, having swollen lymph nodes and a sore throat, and a lowered immune system. Dr. Kines also talks about whether you should do any kind of dietary detox when battling EBV. Overall, she promotes a healthy diet that will increase your nutritional status, making you a less habitable host for the Epstein-Barr Virus. Dietary Changes to Tackle EBV Dr. Kines recommends making some dietary changes if you have EBV. Cutting out gluten, dairy, and eggs, in particular, can make a huge improvement to your symptoms of the virus. She also advises increasing your consumption of fruits, gluten-free grains, and legumes. These are full of antioxidants that incapacitate the virus, making it more difficult to spread and control your body. Eating a diet rich in plant-based foods, low in gluten, and completely without dairy and eggs will be very beneficial for someone with EBV. Dr. Kines advises against following the Keto diet or intermittent fasting as these can have a detrimental effect on your body and the voracity of the virus. Do you have any of the symptoms of the Epstein-Barr Virus? If so, have you cut gluten, dairy, and eggs out of your diet? How are you feeling after doing this?

The virus will travel through the blood and look for residence in any tissue. … It has to go somewhere. Just like you talk about the house, I often teach my students that we're building a really solid brick house that has to start with foundations.” [10:45] “Gluten should not be in the diet and dairy is super inflammatory. There is no place for dairy in the healing process for the human body. Especially not the way that dairy is produced. And for a person with EBV, dairy will really backfire on them.” [26:52] “Another thing that people do wrong is not eating enough fruits. Fruits have the highest antioxidant load and antioxidants incapacitate the virus. I literally have to retrain people to eat larger portions of fruits.” [28:47] “If you want to simplify it, the better nutritional status, the weaker the virus. We have the responsibility to provide the best nutrients.” [34:07] “If a virus is predictable, it is treatable and reversible and sometimes rapidly. And I'm quoting.” [50:18] In This Episode What Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) is [9:00] The common symptoms of chronic EBV [15:30] Four labs to test for EBV [23:00] What dietary changes should you explore with EBV [26:00] Why you should increase your consumption of grains and legumes [30:00] Benefits of increasing plant-based food in your diet [34:30] The role of antioxidants in a diet [28:00] How important detoxification is to anti-viral support and treating EBV [43:00] Links & Resources Use Code VITAMIND for 10% Off Vitamin D Use Code IMMUNESUPPORT 10% Off Immune Support Read: Emfs: Why They Are Dangerous To Your Health And What You Can Do About Them!

Getting the whole family eating healthy can be a challenge, especially when there are food intolerances to contend with. James Barry, a former private celebrity chef, and creator of Pluck seasoning speaks about his experiences in the food industry. He gives his top tips for picky eaters, getting more organ meat in your diet, and encouraging your partner to eat healthier, too. Common Food and Nutrition Mistakes from a Chef Self Assessing any Intolerances You Don't Have to be Good at Cooking Not Meal Planning: It Doesn't Have to be Hard About James Barry James Barry's 16+ years in the culinary field started as a private chef. His inauguration into restaurant-style cooking came later when he was the vegan/vegetarian chef on the Van's Warped Tour, which traveled to 50 North American cities in 60 days. Upon returning to Los Angeles, James continued to private chef and had the fortune of cooking for celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Mariska Hargitay, George Clooney, Gerard Butler, Sean “Puffy” Combs, Barbra Streisand, and John Cusack. Not wanting to limit the audience of his healthy and tasty style of cooking, James started Wholesome2Go, a healthy, high-quality food delivery company that served under his leadership in the Los Angeles area for 8 years. Most recently, James launched his first functional food product, Pluck, an organ-based, all-purpose seasoning. It's the first of its kind and an amazingly easy and delicious way for people to get organ meats into their diet. James also co-authored the recipes in Margaret Floyd's book Eat Naked and co-authored the follow-up cookbook The Naked Foods Cookbook. Top Food Tips from a Chef to the Stars James Barry shares his experiences working as a celebrity chef, and why he started his professional cooking career in the vegan space. With his background in veganism, James understands how limiting it can feel when you're faced with food intolerances. However, he says that there are ways to make substitutions for even the most restricted. We talk about the different ways of cooking and agree that frying food is the least healthy way to eat. If you are going to eat fried food, James recommends five oils, stating that no other oil contains any nutritional benefit - in fact, they're nutritionally detrimental. James shares some of the most common food mistakes people can make. First, any kind of self-assessing of food intolerances. He encourages us to get checked for intolerances so that we can stay aware of how our markers change, if at all. Encouraging Your Household to Eat Healthier James is also insistent that you don't actually need to be good at cooking to make healthy meals at home. One of the secrets is to meal plan each week and to follow a recipe. Recipes really are a step-by-step guide to making nutritious meals. It can be difficult to make dietary changes when everyone in the house isn't on board, especially your partner. James gives some great tips for how to get the rest of the family eating better, from helping them understand the benefits to tapping into the primal side of your relationship. Finally, James talks about cooking for even the pickiest of eaters. He gives some incredible tips for including picky children in the whole food preparation process. He also says we should always have a backup vegetable you know your kids will eat on hand. James's product, Pluck, is an organ-based spice blend that even the pickiest of eaters love! Do you include organ meats in your diet? What are some of your favorite recipes that include organs? Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “The future of health is not necessarily in figuring out what the magic pill is. It's actually figuring out how we can take the tried and true health habits that already exist, like nature's gift is already there, and somehow making it so that we don't have to establish new habits around it.” [6:45] “There's no pressure needed to make food. We think that we have to be good at cooking or we need to be creative in the kitchen, but you really don't. I don't look at things as recipes, I look at things as formulas.” [27:07] “There's this concept of like supports like, that's why I included all five organs in Pluck: liver, kidney, heart, spleen, and pancreas. There's a Native American thought that says if you eat animal organs, then they're going to support your own organs. If you're eating those five, you're supporting all five organs in your own body.” [52:53] In This Episode How to make delicious food substitutions for your health [18:00] The five best oils [21:30] The most common food mistakes from a chef [25:15] The benefits of meal planning [29:00] How to make diet changes when your partner doesn't want to [31:30] How to cook for picky eaters [37:00] Links & Resources Use Code OMEGA3 for 10% Off Omega 3 Your Longevity Blueprint Couse Now 50% Off Use Code DRGRAY10 for 10% Off Pluck: This Link Only!

Just like any part of the body, eye health can't be ignored. But just how do you best support these delicate organs? Today, you'll hear from a true expert on the topic who shares actionable steps you can make to keep your eyes in their best shape for life. Great foods to support eye health include: Leafy greens Carrots Broccoli Cauliflower Berries About Dr. Rudrani Banik Dr. Rudrani Banik is America's Integrative Eye Doctor. She is a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained neuro-ophthalmologist with additional training in Functional Medicine. Dr. Rani focuses on the root cause of eye diseases and uses integrative strategies for conditions such as macular degeneration, cataract, dry eye, glaucoma, and autoimmune diseases of the visual system. Her treatments are based on nutrition, botanicals, lifestyle modification, essential oils, and supplements. Dr. Rani runs a private practice based in New York City and is also an Associate Professor of Mount Sinai in NYC where she serves as an educator and researcher. As Principal Investigator of several clinical trials in diseases of the optic nerve, Dr. Rani uses cutting-edge approaches such as nanotechnology and gene therapy. Dr. Rani is frequently featured as an expert in the media and has been interviewed on Good Morning America, CBS, NBC, ABC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Fox, among many others. Dr. Rani has been voted as Castle Connolly Top Doctor and New York Magazine's Best Doctor in Ophthalmology every year since 2017. Eye Health Starts With Good Nutrition Dr. Rani explains why nutrition is the cornerstone to good vision. A proper diet will even reduce the risk of developing certain eye diseases, such as macular degeneration. This is particularly true with antioxidants. A diet that's rich in antioxidants, particularly when derived from plants, will include many nutrients that protect the eye. Dr. Rani suggests eating a wide variety of vegetables every day to keep your eyes strong. In addition to food, there are supplements that can help. Dr. Rani recommends daily supplements that contain lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin. These antioxidants play an important role in managing the light that comes into our eyes. Protecting Your Eyes From Harmful Light Dr. Rani also talks about the impact of blue light on our eyes. This is the light that comes from the Sun and helps regulate our sleep cycles. It also comes from screens. Too much of this light can lead to digital eye strain and disrupted sleep patterns. To combat this, Dr. Rani recommends using blue-light-blocking glasses. To that end, she discusses what to look for when shopping for these special glasses. You also have to consider sunlight. UV light can damage your eyes. Dr. Rani shares her recommendations for finding the most protective sunglasses. Look for ones that block 100 percent of UV light. Also, the bigger the sunglasses, the better. How can you eat right to protect your eyes? What role can supplements play in this? Leave a comment on the episode page!

Are you cycle smart? Regardless of whether you identify with having a menstrual cycle or not, this episode holds SO much value for YOU! Why? Because chances are - you know someone who does have a menstrual cycle, and this information is LIFE CHANGING. Maddie Miles is an integrative health practitioner, hormone guru, and founder of Peace Love Hormones. Having been diagnosed with many illnesses caused her hormone imbalance, but her education in integrative medicine helped her find something that suits her best. In this episode, she tells what factors affect a woman's menstrual cycle and how to work around them. The Intricacies of Female Hormones Menstruation is something every woman goes through monthly, and it affects everything. A woman's metabolism, mood, creativity, social skills, libido, and fertility can all be traced back to their hormones. However, menstruation is not the same for everyone; premenopausal women do not experience the same as menopausal women. The problem is the lack of normalcy in discussions, so women are often left to their own devices to manage their hormones. Sex education classes are also not very extensive in terms of the menstrual cycle. This is the reason why Maddie is so passionate about helping women. From her own experience, she also struggled to find a way to work around her period. Her background in integrative medicine greatly benefitted her and eventually made her decide to become a hormone guru. Taboo and Stigma Many people feel awkward and shy away from conversations around menstruation. The discussion is often brushed off as something inappropriate when in actuality, it is not. Due to this fact, many are very uninformed when a woman experiences her period, especially men. Worse, they dismiss it as women trying to escape whatever they are doing when the truth is their hormones are making them suffer. Maddie made it her life's mission to educate as many people as possible, both men and women. She envisions a future where everyone understands that menstruation is a normal function in a woman's body. Maddie believes that with the right education, women can take full control of their hormones. About Maddie Miles: Maddie Miles is the founder and CEO of PLH, a brand that educates and empowers menstruators to take back control of their health through education and top-quality supplements. Maddie created PLH after going through the wringer with her health. She was diagnosed with anxiety, depression, insomnia, anorexia, and even Lyme Disease during her young adult life. Maddie was able to heal her body, spirit, and mind naturally, and now it is her mission to help others do the same.

Western medicine can go a long way to improving health and saving lives. Yet, it often leaves many unanswerable questions. Today's guest has built her practice around weaving together the best of Western health care with Chinese medicine to create a comprehensive approach to helping her patients. The solution to difficult health situations lie in: Loving your body, yourself, and others Maintaining a physical balance Identifying your unique lifestyle Learning to listen to your body Managing and understanding your emotions Being persistent and not giving up Trusting the process About Dr. Shiroko Sokitch Shiroko is a doctor who cares about you. The owner of Heart to Heart Medical Center in Santa Rosa, California, since 1993, Dr. Shiroko is an expert at using many modalities to bring your body to balance and wholeness. Her specialty is Healing When It Seems Impossible. She brings hope and healing to difficult health conditions by blending Chinese and Western medicine with a deep spiritual and emotional healing approach. Trained in general surgery and working as an emergency room doctor for ten years while attending acupuncture school, gave Dr. Shiroko a broad range of medical experience. Finding Your Balance with Chinese Medicine In this episode, Dr. Shiroko explains the basic principles behind Chinese medicine. It's all based on the flow of energy. Your organs are central to this. Dr. Shiroko describes how each organ has an emotional function, a spiritual function, and other physical functions. With her background in different medical fields, Dr. Shiroko looks for patterns between all the body's systems. By looking for patterns of imbalance, she can help get to the root cause of medical issues and address them at the source. This all helps promote longevity. Helping your energy flow through regular practices like acupuncture and chi gong keeps your body in balance. It also helps balance emotions which are often at the root of ailments. The Emotional Heart of Your Health It's all about creating balance. Yet, this will not happen by accident. Dr. Shiroko describes the role of various organs in emotional and physical health. Often, negative emotions like anger can be healed through forgiveness. Therefore, healing can often be achieved by coming to a position of forgiveness. Overall, healing depends on faith and trust. Dr. Shiroko explains how we are all on journeys of health. For that journey to succeed, we each need to be open to possibilities and be accepting of the love we have and the love we receive. How will you start a practice of loving your body every day? How will this help balance your emotions? Leave a comment on the episode page!

That energy travels through your body in certain patterns. When your energy is out of balance, there are problems.” [7:26] “You're a spirit living inside of a body, but your body loves you. It's your friend, not your enemy.” [11:54] “We all know that energy exists. We feel energy in different points, but we don't know what to call that. The cool thing about Chinese medicine is it's a system that's been in place for thousands of years for accessing our own energy.” [27:44] “Put your energy into love and, if possible, put your energy into loving yourself and your body and appreciating whatever is happening to you.” [39:40] In This Episode What makes Chinese medicine different [7:20] Understanding the keys to balance and longevity [10:50] The link between emotions and organ health [20:20] The benefits of acupuncture to help increase longevity [24:20] How Chinese medicine takes a unique approach to the healing process [31:05] The role of energy in Chinese medicine [34:10] Links & Resources Use code CALM to save 10% on Adrenal Calm The Magnificence of Magnesium Get 10% off Magnesium Chelate: Magnesium Follow Dr. Shiroko Sokitch on Facebook | Linkedin Healing When It Seems Impossible – 7 Keys to Defy the Odds by Dr. Shiroko Sokitch Get Dr. Shiroko's Your Free Workbook The Web That Has No Weaver by Ted J Kaptchuk Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 60: Break the Yang Addiction with Brodie Welch

In addition to the physical toll of childbirth, there can be mental health challenges as well. Today's guest, an expert in postpartum mental health, is here to talk about how to recognize it and address it. Preparing for the postpartum period requires: Having clearly defined household and caregiving roles with your partner Understanding the state of your mental health Recognizing where you need help and asking for it Investigating your overall hormonal health About Shannon Wilson Shannon is licensed by the State of Iowa as a Mental Health Counselor and holds Certification in Perinatal Mental Health. She has a Bachelor's degree in Social Work and earned her Master's Degree in Counseling, Rehabilitation, and Student Development in 2010 from the University of Iowa. Shannon has extensive experience treating adults, both individuals and couples with a special interest and expertise in reproductive and maternal mental health. She enjoys working with pregnant women and mothers who may be experiencing difficulties with role changes and identity shifts as a result of pregnancy and motherhood, as well as mothers who are experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety. Shannon remains committed to ongoing learning and professional growth and has continued her education with a variety of trainings including the 12-hour post-graduate Postpartum Depression training at The Postpartum Stress Center as well as with the completion of the Postpartum Support International Maternal Mental Health certificate training. She is the first person in the state to become certified in Perinatal Mental Health. Shannon also completed "Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Anxiety-Related Disorders" training at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy in Pennsylvania. Shannon's other professional interests include, but are not limited to the treatment of anxiety disorders, self-esteem, women's issues, codependency, and couples issues. She helped to found and formerly chaired the Iowa Chapter of Postpartum Support International. Shannon is available for public speaking about a variety of mental health issues. She is currently a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association, Iowa Mental Health Counselors Association, Postpartum Support International, and Postpartum Support International Iowa Chapter. Recognizing Postpartum Conditions Post-partum depression is a large part of perinatal mental health. However, there's a lot more to it. Shannon discusses how anxiety, traumatic stress, and so many other conditions are common after the birth of a child. She explains the need for adequate mental health services for women with these conditions as well as those who've experienced fertility issues, pregnancy and infancy loss, and traumatic birth experiences. In fact, most women experience a significant hormonal shift for the first few weeks after childbirth. Known as the “baby blues”, these mood-affecting hormonal fluctuations are perfectly normal. Things only become a problem when postpartum issues begin to impact the quality of life. Shannon isn't so concerned about the nature of intrusive thoughts that occur after childbirth. Instead, she focuses on reducing levels of distress. Preparing for Postpartum Difficulties Perhaps the best way to handle the difficult postpartum period is to be prepared for it. Shannon discusses how she sets women up for success well before birth. Open discussions with your partner are key. Part of this is being clear on caregiving roles and responsibilities and being open about mental health concerns. Most of all, Shannon wants us to recognize that we don't have to do it all and to ask for help when we need it. We also talk about how to react during stressful situations that are out of our control. You can do things on a daily basis to prevent stress. You can also prepare ahead of time to manage stress when it occurs. Shannon shares how setting healthy boundaries and expectations will help limit or prevent stress. How can you set boundaries to manage stress before the postpartum period begins? Leave a comment on the episode page!

Quotes “Traumatic birth is one of the risk factors for dealing with postpartum mood or anxiety disorder. So being able to process that experience, work through it, and heal from it is super important.” [4:40] “The content of the thought and how graphic it is, does not concern me. That has no clinical value to me. What I'm most concerned about is their level of distress associated with it.” [11:05] “If you are struggling, the sooner [you're evaluated] the better because what we know is that earlier intervention will help you feel better faster.” [21:39] “Keep expectations low. Don't put so much on your plate because it's so important to have some downtime to restore.” [25:55] In This Episode What perinatal mental health is and why it's important [3:35] Typical postpartum expectations and the “baby blues” [5:25] Signs that you may be experiencing postpartum OCD and how to address it [8:40] How to prepare for the postpartum period [11:45] The hormonal shifts that occur during and after pregnancy [15:50] Tips for managing stress [24:10] Links & Resources Use Code OMEGA3 for 10% off Omega3 Supplements Find Shannon Wilson online Follow Shannon on Facebook | Instagram The Postpartum Stress Center Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 22: My Top Anxiety Tips

Hormonal Imbalances Can Ruin Your Life, Here's How to Fix Them | This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and InsideTracker.Mainstream medicine often fails us when it comes to hormonal imbalances. Hormones aren't commonly tested, even when there is a high likelihood of an issue (like cortisol in our overly stressed culture). Since there are so many hormones that can become dysregulated, presenting with a wide variety of symptoms, many of the symptoms are written off to aging and never addressed. In this episode of The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru takes a deep dive into the topic of hormonal imbalances with Dr. Sara Gottfried, along with what you can do to get them back on track.

Betrayal is a form of trauma. Like any trauma, it impacts our health. But there are elements of betrayal that make it unique. I'm joined by Dr. Debi Silber to talk about what she learned about Post-Betrayal Syndrome from her own experiences and research. The five stages from betrayal to breakthrough are: Neglected emotions/intuition Shock The emergence of survival instincts Adjusting to a new normal Healing, rebirth, and a new worldview About Dr. Debi Silber Dr. Debi Silber is the founder of the Post Betrayal Transformation Institute. She is a holistic psychologist, health, mindset, and personal development expert, the author of the #1 bestselling book: The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind, and Life After a Life Crisis, and her newest book: Trust Again: Overcoming Betrayal and Regaining Health, Confidence, and Happiness. Her recent Ph.D. study on how we experience betrayal made three groundbreaking discoveries that change how long it takes to heal. In addition to being on FOX, CBS, The Dr. Oz Show, TEDx (twice), and more, she's an award-winning speaker, coach, and author dedicated to helping people move past their betrayals as well as any other blocks preventing them from the health, work, relationships, confidence and happiness they want most. How Our Bodies and Minds Hold on to Betrayal When faced with a betrayal, many people find themselves in one of three groups. There are those who try to avoid their feelings through numbing or distractions. Others deny the experience altogether. In the third group are people whose betrayer faces no consequences at all. Debi explains how people in these groups often experience a further deterioration of relationships as well as illness. Physical, mental, and emotional issues are common elements of post-betrayal syndrome. Debi shares how this will go unresolved until we face the root cause head-on. In her research, Debi has seen the impact of unresolved betrayal. Many people experience gut issues, energy deficits, and weight fluctuations. They may also experience overwhelm, anxiety, shock, and an inability to concentrate. When these combine, it's no wonder that betrayal has long-lasting effects. Moving Through the Stages of Betrayal Through her extensive research, Debi identified the stages of betrayal and how people move beyond it. It often starts with neglected emotions and ignored intuition. People then experience shock. When betrayal is discovered, our worldview is shattered, and mental, emotional, and physical health suffers as a result. This is followed by the emergence of survival instincts. However, many get stuck in this stage and fail to heal fully. They then adjust to a new normal and establish new boundaries. This is when we leave behind what wasn't serving us and seek out new comforts. Healing doesn't really come until the final stage - developing a new worldview. This occurs when we move past surviving and construct new rules and viewpoints based on the entire experience. Have you experienced a betrayal that still affects you? What new boundaries and worldview has emerged from it? Leave a comment on the episode page! Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “Because it feels so intentional, we take it so personally. The entire self needs to be rebuilt. Rejection, abandonment, confidence, worthiness, belonging, trust - they're shattered.” [8:28] “We've been taught time heals all wounds. I have the proof that's not true.”[9:47] “I'm not saying that betrayal was our fault. What I've come to learn is it really is our opportunity.” [23:38] “Transformation begins when you tell yourself the truth.” [34:42] In This Episode What led Debi to research betrayal [1:40] What betrayal actually is and how it impacts our health [6:20] Moving beyond betrayal to begin healing [12:30] How to know if you have post-betrayal syndrome [22:00] How transformation can occur after a betrayal [25:50] Identifying if you are numbing rather than healing [33:20] Links & Resources The Magnificence of Magnesium Get 10% off Magnesium Chelate: Magnesium Post-Betrayal Transformation Institute TEDx: "Do you have Post Betrayal Syndrome?” Take the PBT Institute Quiz Trust Again: Overcoming Betrayal and Regaining Health, Confidence, and Happiness The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind, and Life After a Life Crisis Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 63: Childhood Trauma and Healing Episode 21: How Trauma Affects Your Health

Many of us obsess over our weight. However, our relationships with food and weight are often a symptom of something else. Today, I'm joined by Tricia Nelson who shows us how to go deeper by healing the underlying causes of emotional eating. Lasting improvements to weight require us to address Stress levels Personal priorities Past and present traumas Emotional blocks About Tricia Nelson Tricia Nelson lost fifty pounds by identifying and healing the underlying causes of her emotional eating. She has spent nearly thirty years researching the hidden causes of the addictive personality. Tricia is an Emotional Eating Expert and author of the #1 bestselling book, Heal Your Hunger, 7 Simple Steps to End Emotional Eating Now. She is also the host of the popular podcast, The Heal Your Hunger Show. A highly regarded speaker and coach, Tricia has been featured on NBC, CBS, KTLA, FOX, and Discovery Health. Emotional Eating is a Sign of Something Deeper Emotional eating comes in a number of forms. In short, Tricia defines it as burying your emotions with food. This is an unconscious behavior much of the time. We discuss when this becomes an addiction and a sign of a much larger problem. This gets to why most diets fail. Tricia explains that this happens when people focus on the symptom rather than the cause. Weight gain is merely the result of something else. When we ignore this, we may be able to lose weight. However, failing to address underlying emotional causes means that any improvements will be temporary. The Root of Eating Disorders Tricia talks about the primary drivers of emotional eating. These are pain, fear, and guilt. A lot of this is rooted in the way we're living. It's not so much an eating problem as it is a living problem. We have to examine how we're living. For those of us who are constantly trying to people-please, have a racing mind, or are afraid of emotional expression, eating disorders are a common result. This all gets to the notion that food cravings are emotional and self-created. There is no reason to blame yourself for this. However, once you understand that you created them, you can begin to change your behavior to eliminate the problem.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Kristina Hess. Kristina is a premier health coach and licensed dietitian/nutritionist who works with clients to support them in making lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. Kristina has a master's degree in clinical nutrition and Integrative Health from MUIH - Maryland University for Integrative Health and several certifications in areas ranging from Mindful Eating, Heartmath,to Ericksonian Hypnosis to Sport Nutrition. Kristina received her health coach certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Kristina's integrative and functional approach is an arm within the Functional Medicine model of the IFM. Functional Medicine views us all as being different; genetically and biochemically unique. A functional approach is deeply science based and views everything that happens within us as a connected network or web of relationships. Kristina's private practice in Connecticut is called Thrive Results Coaching. In this episode, Kristina explains what health complications come from insulin resistance and the Standard American Diet. If you're a sugar burner, Kristina describes what you need to start doing right away in order to turn your health around. One of the first things you need to do is start testing critical health markers. Kristina reveals which health markers are essential and which brands she recommends to her clients. Tune in as we jump into epigenetics, mental health, and Kristina's upcoming Keto Symposium.

Text me the words "Podcast" +1 (786) 364-5002 to be added to my contacts list. [01:15] Complications From Insulin Resistance and The Standard American Diet It can take 15 to 20 years to develop insulin resistance. Parents don't want to take food away from their kids like macaroni, pizza, and chicken nuggets. Kids will start metabolically flexible and can get away with eating anything. However, it won't last forever. If you still want to buy chips, then Kristina will suggest buying chips with cleaner ingredients. Instead of buying Ben & Jerry's ice cream, try a pint of Rebel ice cream. The most common contributing factors leading to insulin resistance are lifestyle issues like nutrition. If we ate real food, then we wouldn't develop insulin resistance in the first place. Processed food is speeding our way to insulin resistance. [06:10] Are You A Sugar Burner? Here's What You Need To Do Now There are three things we can do when we are trying to get well: Time Restriction: how often you're eating and when you are eating. It's critical to stop eating before bedtime. Caloric Restriction: if you're going to eat garbage, then eat less of it. Dietary Restriction: take something out of your diet that is not healthy for you. It will be a vast improvement from the Standard American Diet. If you want results, try all three of these steps. 76% of the world population does not have the genetic adaptation for LCT. You should consider cutting out dairy; cow dairy is inflammatory for most humans. If you have skin issues, headaches, and extra flatulence, then dairy could be the problem. [11:50] The Importance of Testing For Glucose Values and Ketones Values If you are extremely insulin resistant, there is hope if you're willing to put in the work. There are two different companies that Kristina recommends for her clients: Keto Mojo: https://keto-mojo.com/ Biosense: https://mybiosense.com/ Keto Mojo allows you to test ketones and blood sugar. Plus, they provide your GKI. People should test every single day, especially in the beginning. That way, you can learn which foods are taking you out of ketosis. Plus, by testing, you can learn how many carbohydrates that you can tolerate. Some people can stay in ketosis at 50 total carbs or 75 total carbs. Everyone has their own carb tolerance. [18:50] What Is Nutrigenomics? It Might Be The Future of How You Eat The Human Genome Project was a project that spanned many years. Human DNA was mapped out to correlate to different nutrients and hormones. APOE4 is an old gene, and it conferred a lot of health benefits. One of the benefits was fertility in cold weather. Plus, APOE4 correlates to neuronal health in the brain and also to cholesterol production. Unfortunately, today's diet doesn't correlate to that old gene. Our diet causes a lot of inflammation. If you have APOE4, you shouldn't drink at all because you are 23% more likely to develop Alzheimer's. If you want to test your genes, Kristina recommends the Nutrition Genome: https://nutritiongenome.com/. If you have done a 23andMe, then you can use that data as well. [26:10] The Role That Epigenetics Plays With Our Genes and Lifestyle How you live is what impacts your epigenetics. We are in control of our health. How much sleep do you get each night? How are you moving your body? Genetics is the blueprint. Genes are the potential, and they can give us a roadmap on how to live our lives. Epigenetics is the optimal lifestyle that will help you lead a healthier and longer life. There's a gene that correlates to ketones: PPARalpha. If you have this gene, eating extra fat will be challenging. [30:40] The Health Numbers You Absolutely Need To Know Ask for your A1C. That way, you know if you are headed for diabetes. C-reactive protein is a cardiac risk marker. You want it to be under a 1. Also, test for homocysteine, RBC magnesium, and B12. Lastly, get a full thyroid panel. [33:25] How Changing Your Lifestyle Can Impact Your Mental Health Sugar takes us on a roller coaster ride emotionally. There is a strong food-mood connection. Cold therapy can be a huge benefit for improving mood. People don't need antidepressants and antianxiety medicine if they have the proper tools. It takes 72 hours to get off sugar. Once that's over, you have all this freedom and clarity. Then, you'll have the energy to work out. Plus, you will sleep better. [40:15] All About The Keto Symposium and Why You Should Sign Up Today Learn about The Keto Symposium: https://www.ketosymposium.com/ Kristina loves to educate people; that's why she started the Keto Symposium.

Childhood trauma is often stored in our bodies, starting in the first year of our lives. It doesn't even have to be a hugely traumatic experience - it could even come from a child's mother. Dr. Aimie Apigian joins us to talk about how childhood trauma affects our long-term health conditions and how we can accelerate the healing process to reclaim our health. Biochemical Imbalances Caused by Genetics or Epigenetics Methylation Imbalance Copper & Zinc Pyrrole Disorder About Dr. Aimie Apigian Dr. Aimie is a Board-Certified Physician in Preventive Medicine and Addiction Medicine who specializes in recognizing and addressing the chronic effects of trauma on one's biology. After helping her foster-adopted son as he struggled with severe emotional and behavioral issues, she started to see how much of trauma is biology, not psychology. She earned her medical degree from Loma Linda University, has a Masters in Biochemistry, and a Masters in Public Health. 2 years into her general surgery residency, she went from running marathons and being an avid cyclist to severe fatigue, autoimmune issues, was overweight and depressed. Through her personal experiences, she has found we all live compromised due to stored trauma in our bodies. Talk therapy is not the answer. Dr. Amie's mission is to share with others the ways to accelerate the healing journey to consistent high states of health, aliveness, and performance through leveraging our own very survival, and reward pathways. Storing Childhood Trauma Dr. Amie Apigian shares her own personal experience with her adopted son to help explore her approach to trauma-informed therapy that focuses on our biology as well. Stored trauma often embeds in us before a child is 12 months old, even if that child hasn't had any traumatic experiences in life. But Amie explains how trauma can pass onto a child through its mother through attachment and subconscious signals. Even if the mother is experiencing stress in her day-to-day life, a baby can pick up on these queues and hold onto this as stored trauma. Of course, there are other ways of experiencing trauma that have even more of an impact. Childhood and stored trauma may not be something we notice as children or early adults, but as we age, we can develop chronic and long-term health conditions associated with this trauma. Breaking Trauma Cycles Amie talks about how our bodies can get stuck in a state of “freeze,” rather than fight or flight followed by relaxation. There's a common misconception that pegs all these responses together, but Amie explains the difference between sympathetic responses (fight or flight) and parasympathetic responses (freeze) and why it's essential to return to that state of calm instead of holding onto the stress. Amie explains how we can start to break these trauma cycles that start in childhood. Referencing her son, it is possible to start alleviating symptoms really quickly when the approach, support, and breakthroughs are just right. While there is a lot of benefit in talking therapy, yoga, and meditation, Amie explains why healing has to start at a biological level to address the root cause of the trauma. She says our bodies need that neuroplasticity to bounce back to our level state of stress. Did you experience trauma as a child that impacts your adult life? Do you think your long-term health conditions could connect back to incidents from when you were a child? Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “Whatever our pattern in our nervous system, if we came out of our childhood with any insecurities in our nervous system, subconsciously, even after our best attempts not to let our past influence our parenting, it's going to come out because trauma is not verbal.” [18:48] “Many, many people are living in what I call a chronic, functional freeze state. They've given up. They're just going through life living in a bit of a daze and have lost their fight and fire for life because it's been hard. Their nervous system has gotten to the point where it's running on fumes. This low energy state helps us survive, but not live.” [32:59] “When we look at these points in our biology that are holding our nervous system back from being able to process things, heal, and rewire itself, those are leverage points that we get to use to accelerate the healing journey.” [47:17] “There are clear leverage points in our biology that when you combine that then with the trauma therapies and somatic work working directly with your nervous system, you can feel that charge come up. You can feel the discharge. It shows up as heat or even trembling. Somatic trauma therapy is such powerful work. You can, in real-time, learn how to shift your own nervous system.” [48:11] In This Episode How childhood/stored trauma can cause disease later in life [8:00] How trauma gets stored in the body [9:00] The difference between parasympathetic and sympathetic responses [11:00] How to break attachment trauma cycles [21:00] Why our bodies need neuroplasticity [29:00] How to accelerate the healing journey [46:45] Links & Resources Get 10% Off Adrenal Calm with Code: CALM Watch “Why Attachment is the Future of Health” Learn About Trauma Accelerated Healing The Biology of Trauma Summit Biology of Trauma Certification Course Roadmap Neuro-Optimize For Aliveness Find Dr. Amie Apigian Online Follow Dr. Amie Apigian on Instagram | Facebook | YouTube Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 57: 5 Keys To Raising Healthy Kids With Dr. Brian Stenzler Episode 47: Improving Parasympathetic Tone For The Ans With Dr. Tim Jackson Episode 21: How Trauma Affects Your Health With Dr. Keesha Ewers
Is Dairy Good For Us? | This episode is brought to you by ButcherBoxWe have no biological requirement for dairy, and yet, we've been told over and over again that this food is a great source of calcium and that milk makes healthy bones and we should drink it daily. However, the research shows that none of this is true. In fact, close to 70 percent of the world's population is genetically unable to properly digest milk and other dairy products—a problem known as lactose intolerance. But even if you aren't lactose intolerant, consuming dairy can lead to weight gain, bloating, acne, gas, allergies, eczema, brittle bones, and sometimes even cancer.In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman discusses why he often works with patients to eliminate dairy in conversations with his colleagues Lisa Dreher and Dr. Elizabeth Boham. He also speaks with Dr. David Ludwig about his recent research on milk and dairy products.Lisa Dreher is a registered dietitian who got her undergraduate nutrition degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology and completed a dietetic internship through Cornell University. Lisa first worked in the acute care hospital setting and became a Clinical Nutrition Specialist working in Pediatric Gastroenterology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. At the same time, she pursued her Masters degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health from the Maryland University of Integrative Health and started practicing integrative and functional nutrition in private practice before joining UWC in 2015. She has since received additional training through the Institute for Functional Medicine. Over the past 10 years, Lisa has delivered several public health lectures on the role of food as medicine and her work has been showcased in Reader's Digest, on National Public Radio, and she was featured in the Broken Brain 2 series. She also developed the Digestive Health and Gut Microbiome training module for the Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine practice group through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing. Dr. Boham has contributed to many articles and wrote the latest chapter on Obesity for the Rankel Textbook of Family Medicine. She is part of the faculty of the Institute for Functional Medicine and has been featured on the Dr. Oz show and in a variety of publications and media including Huffington Post, The Chalkboard Magazine, and Experience Life. Her DVD Breast Wellness: Tools to Prevent and Heal from Breast Cancer explores the Functional Medicine approach to keeping your breasts and whole body well.David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD is an endocrinologist and researcher at Boston Children's Hospital. He holds the rank of Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Ludwig is co-director of the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center and founder of the Optimal Weight for Life program, one of the country's oldest and largest clinics for the care of overweight children.

Mental health problems and stress affect everyone, before the pandemic hit, and certainly after. We all know the importance of developing healthy coping techniques and reducing our stress levels. But did you know it's equally important to instill these values in children, too? Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge joins me to talk about her work focused on helping parents and children develop healthy stress management skills from a young age. How to Mitigate and Support Your Nervous System in Ten Minutes a Day Intentful Breathwork Meditation Biofeedback About Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge Dr. Roseann is a mental health trailblazer, founder of The Global Institute of Children's Mental Health, and Dr. Roseann & Associates. She is, “Changing the way we view and treat children's mental health”. FORBES magazine called her, “A thought leader in children's mental health”. Her work has helped thousands of people reverse the most challenging conditions, such as ADHD, anxiety, mood, autism, learning disability, Lyme, and PANS/PANDAS using PROVEN holistic therapies such as neurofeedback, biofeedback, and psychotherapy. She is the author of the first-ever book on teletherapy activities for child and adolescent therapists, “Teletherapy Toolkit™️”, It's Gonna be OK!™️ book, and The Get Unstuck Program™️, which are resources for parents to reverse their child's symptoms. She is often featured on dozens of media outlets including Fox, CBS, NBC, FORBES, PARENTS, and New York Times. The Problem with Stress Dr. Roseann talks about how stress affects every single person living on this planet. It attacks our autonomic nervous system and has a truly detrimental impact on our entire body and health. Roseann's work focuses on children and how parents can help them learn how to cope with stress from a young age. Roseann explains what happens to each part of our bodies when we're under stress. While we know it's practically impossible to eradicate stress in your life, it is possible to learn how to reduce your stress levels and develop healthier coping mechanisms. Long-term and chronic stress is devastating for your body, so it's essential that you figure out ways to cope better. She urges the importance of developing these methods as an adult. By modeling appropriate behaviors for managing stress, parents can help instill these values and habits in their children, helping set them up for a more resilient life. Developing Healthy Coping Habits Roseann shares some habits to do every single day, such as breathwork and meditation, that can help reduce your stress levels. She encourages getting your kids involved, too, so they start building on these habits themselves. Another technique to model and help your children with is healthy problem-solving. Kids these days aren't learning how to solve problems, so it's our responsibility as parents to help them develop this skill. Moreso, we can encourage our children that it's okay to feel uncomfortable and vulnerable, that those feelings are important. Finally, we talk about how therapy is an essential practice for mental wellness. Roseann explains how teletherapy, phone-only therapy, is making talking therapy more accessible, which means that more and more people have access to mental health help. No one ever regrets going to therapy - only if they don't. If you think you or your children could benefit from talking therapy, please seek out a qualified therapist or teletherapist to help you. Or, call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “We have to change the way we view mental health. We have to change the way we're treating it. Everybody's mental health is worsening prior to the pandemic and certainly during the pandemic. We need to do something different. The basis of my work is to use evidence-based approaches which we are not doing in mental health.” [6:36] “Unless we intendedly practice ways to regulate our nervous system, that chronic stress has to have a physical outcome. You cannot live in a chronic stress state.” [9:04] “Our kids are not understanding how to problem solve. We need to teach kids and accept for ourselves that it is okay to be uncomfortable. We are supposed to be uncomfortable at times. That is our alert system. Emotions are uncomfortable. Anxiety, worry, sadness, grief: these are normal emotions. We have to experience them, deal with them, and move on.” [33:06] “Nobody ever regrets getting help. They only regret when they don't. If you have a child with any kind of mental health symptom, they're showing evidence of worry (stomach aches, headaches, cyclical night vomiters), go and get help. The longer these behaviors go on, the harder they are to unwind.” [40:05] In This Episode How stress affects our nervous system [7:30] What happens to your body under stress [11:00] How parents can build a resilient mindset in their children [31:15] The importance of teaching your children to problem solve and manage stress [37:30] How teletherapy can support mental health [38:30] Links & Resources Use Code CALM for 10% Off Adrenal Calm Get Your Free Gift: Over 100 Ways to Help Kids Tolerate Stress Find Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge Online Find The Global Institute of Children's Mental Health Online Follow Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn | Pinterest Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 57: 5 Keys To Raising Healthy Kids With Dr. Brian Stenzler Episode 12: How To Build Children's Health With Food With Dr. Ana Maria Temple Episode 56: Top 2021 Longevity Tips Part I

So if you're already a meditator, great. If not, where will you choose to practice regularly? In bed, sitting in a chair, sitting on the floor? How will you choose to practice regularly focusing on your breath, focusing on a word phrase or prayer or using visualization? So try a meditation that works for you today.

With rates of cancer on the rise, how can you increase your odds of staying healthy? Today's guest shares his insight into how to detoxify your life to stay healthy for the long run. The six core causes of cancer are Chronic inflammation Elevated blood glucose Environmental toxins Stress Unhealthy diet Lifestyle behaviors About Nathan Crane Nathan Crane is an award-winning author, inspirational speaker, plant-based athlete, event producer, and 20x award-winning documentary filmmaker. Nathan is the Founder of The Panacea Community, Creator of the Global Cancer Symposium, Host of the Conquering Cancer Summit, and Director and Producer of the documentary film, “Cancer; The Integrative Perspective”. In 2005, at only 18 years old, Nathan began his health, healing, and spiritual journey, eventually overcoming a decade of brutal teenage addiction, house arrest, jail, and challenging times of homelessness to become an international author, filmmaker, and speaker dedicated to health, healing and conscious awakening. Nathan received numerous awards for his contribution to health, healing, and personal development including the Accolade Film Competition 2020's Outstanding Achievement Humanitarian Award and the Outstanding Community Service Award from the California Senate for his work in education and empowerment with natural and integrative methods for healing cancer. With more than 15 years in the health and wellness field, Nathan has reached millions of people around the world with his inspiring messages of hope, healing, and transformation. Why Cancer Is More Common than Ever Despite improvements in diagnosing and treatments, cancer levels are rising. Nathan explains why this is by tracing human health from before the industrial revolution to today. Once people began separating themselves from the natural world, diseases began to increase. Nathan breaks down the leading causes of cancer. These include being in a chronic state of inflammation, environmental toxins, stress, too much sugar, a bad diet, and certain lifestyle behaviors. While all these affect many of us, Nathan shares what we can do to counteract them. From reassessing what we eat to implementing stress-management techniques, there are measures we can all take to reduce the likelihood of having cancer. Reducing EMF Exposure Another less talked about, cause of cancer is exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). These are all around us but there are ways to mitigate exposure. Nathan recommends switching your phone to airplane mode at night and not carrying it on you as much as possible. He switches off his wifi router when not in use and even suggests turning off the breaker to your bedroom overnight. While taken all at once, this can seem overwhelming. That's not the point. Nathan suggests making incremental changes over time to improve your environment and hopefully reduce harmful exposure. What lifestyle and diet changes can you start implementing today? Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “When we started separating ourselves from nature and thinking that we are separate from and not unified with it in harmony, that is the point in which all diseases started to proliferate throughout human society.” [12:52] “We don't get cancer, we make cancer. There is usually more than one reason why we are making cancer.” [18:52] “You can really break cancer and most chronic diseases down into two things. It's either you're getting too much of what you don't need or you're not getting enough of what you do need.” [33:47] “Supplements are meant to supplement your already amazing diet. They're not meant to replace your poor diet.” [54:57] In This Episode How Nathan learned to live a loving spiritual life [2:04] Why cancer rates are on the rise [11:15] Methods for detoxing your home and body [30:30] Reducing your exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) [41:55] Avoiding mycotoxins in pet food [47:55] The best supplements to support the immune system [54:15] Links & Resources Why Antioxidants Are Important Wisdom of the Body Masterclass D3 5000 120 count D3 5000 60 count D3 + K2 D3 1000 Liquid D3 + K2 Liquid D3 D3 50,000 Find Nathan Crane online “Cancer; The Integrative Perspective” EMF Pollution Solutions Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 5: From Hodgkins to Healthmaker with Kylene Terhune

Chinese medicine is more than just treating health symptoms. It's bringing the body back into balance using lifestyle improvements, self-care and -respect practices, and nourishing our vitality. Brodie Welch joins me to talk about how she uses acupuncture, qi gong, and Chinese medicine to help high-achieving women start enjoying their lives again. How to Break Free of the Yang Make time for joy Make time for rest Make time for proper nourishment Rest your mind and observe where you're coming from Live from a place of balanced ease and balanced action Treat yourself with the same kindness you would treat someone else About Brodie Welch Brodie Welch is a Licensed Acupuncturist, board-certified herbalist, and self-care strategist. Brodie helps self-aware, high-achieving women break the cycle of stress, overwhelm, and self-sabotage so they can enjoy the lives they're working so hard to create, and truly embody self-respect. Working at the confluence of wellness and personal development, she helps thousands of clients optimize their weight, digestion, hormones, sleep, mood, and vitality. A lifelong student of consciousness, Brodie has been practicing meditation, yoga, and qi gong for over twenty years and holds teaching certifications in each of these disciplines. She synthesizes ancient techniques from Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and yoga with the latest research in neuroscience, functional medicine, and habit change to help her clients thrive. Her holistic self-care boot camp program “Level Up Your Life” helps women bridge the gap between what they know they should be doing to take care of themselves and actually doing it – without feeling guilty. She's the founder of Life in Balance Acupuncture in Corvallis, Oregon, where she has been treating patients since 2003. She's also the creator and host of A Healthy Curiosity: the podcast that explores what it takes to be well in a busy world. Prioritizing Yin Energy Brodie Welch explains how she uses Chinese medicine to help people of all ages reclaim their health and move in the direction of life and vitality. A big part of her work is helping her clients embrace the Yin side of their life as society obsesses over the Yang, more masculine, traits. As with everything on this planet, we, too, go through seasons and cycles. However, Western society encourages us to stay in our Yang energy, foregoing the season of winter. Brodie encourages you to embrace wintering: rest, rejuvenation, and rehabilitation. Brodie shares some of the ways to break free of our Yang addiction. By prioritizing rest, joy, and proper nourishment, we can start to reclaim the Ying in our life. Find Balance with Chinese Medicine It's all about finding that balance - but since we're so far into the Yang, we need to be intentional about our self-care and self-respect practices. Brodie shares how she differentiates self-care and self-respect, and how respecting yourself and showing yourself the same attention and care you would someone else is the best form of self-care there is. Chinese medicine is not just living intentionally - though that is a big part of it. It's also practicing qi gong, acupuncture, meditation, and embracing herbal remedies. The very nature of Chinese medicine helps reduce stress levels and softens some of the more uncomfortable symptoms of menopause and peri-menopause. How can you find the Yin-Yang balance in your life? What Yin practices will you start incorporating? Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “There are all these different ways that we use to restore balance to the body. Chinese medicine, at its core, is really applied philosophy. You can make a choice every day to live in a more Yin way or a more Yang way.” [6:43] “Health isn't just the absence of disease. It's nourishing our vitality. It's living in accordance with who we really are. There's this consciousness dimension of things. We need to make sure that we are in alignment, that we are living in energy integrity and not dipping into our energy reserve.” [12:03] “In Chinese medicine, we can see things coming before they actually manifest. We can take someone's pulse and sense an imbalance before it shows up. We can look at the signs and symptoms that will affect an organ to see that if it's not addressed, it will get worse. The most potent force in life that we have to work with is what we do with our time. What we do each and every day makes so much more of a difference than what any practitioner of any stripe can do for you in an office.” [19:06] “I think qi gong is one of the most powerful self-healing practices people can ever learn. It's so accessible, whereas yoga can be really daunting to people. As we think about aging, ways of staying supple and flexible, reducing falls, improving bone density, and quality of life. There are so many studies on qi gong as being super effective in helping people maintain their health throughout their lives.” [33:29] In This Episode What Chinese medicine is [4:00] Why we need to recognize and participate in the season or wintering [8:45] Why it's difficult to opt-out of the Yang culture that permeates Western culture [15:00] What practices to adopt to break free of Yang addiction [16:15] The link between self-care and self-respect [18:15] How Chinese medicine treats stress [22:15] How to move your life in the direction of life rather than imbalance [28:00] What acupuncture is and how it impacts your health and body [29:00] Links & Resources Use Code CALM for 10% Off Adrenal Calm Download the Calm & Centered Bundle Download the Manifesto Brodie's Signature Program, Level Up Your Life Listen to A Healthy Curiosity On Facebook On Apple Podcasts Find Brodie Welch Online Follow Brodie Welch on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 53: Keto Green Approach To Hormones With Dr. Anna Cabeca Episode 51: Brilliant Menopause Secrets With Dr. Kyrin Dunston Episode 57: 5 Keys To Raising Healthy Kids With Dr. Brian Stenzler

Your skin is a direct reflection of what's going on inside your body. Hormonal imbalances, deficiencies, and inflammation can all show up on your skin. Dr. Trevor Cates joins me to talk about how our internal health shows up on our skin, what the six root causes of our skin issues could be, and why we need to simplify our skincare routine. The 6 Root Causes Behind Skin Issues Inflammation Nutritional Deficiencies Hormonal Imbalances Blood Sugar Imbalances Oxidative Damage Microbiome Imbalances About Dr. Trevor Cates Dr. Trevor Cates is author of the USA Today and Amazon bestselling book Clean Skin From Within and founder of The Spa Dr. natural skincare line. She received her medical degree from the National University of Natural Medicine and was the first woman licensed as a naturopathic doctor in the state of California. She currently lives in Park City, Utah where she helps patients from around the world achieve naturally glowing skin. She has been on various TV shows, including The Doctors and Extra TV. Dr. Cates interviews over 250 experts on The Spa Dr. podcast and hosted her own PBS special, Younger Skin From Within. She believes the key to healthy skin is inner and outer nourishment with natural and non-toxic ingredients. Redefining Skincare from the Inside Out Dr. Trevor Cates explains how our internal health shows up on our skin and what the six root causes of your skin issues could be. She's also redefining the skin types we've grown up with to five new categories that are much more inclusive of skin problems. Trevor believes that if we focus on four main lifestyle changes, we can improve not only our skin health but our overall health, too. By focusing on our diet, our exercise, and our mental health, we can revolutionize skincare. Diet can be a huge trigger for your skin. Trevor explains what foods you should avoid, especially if you have skin issues, and what you should load your plate up with. We both agree that our plates should be full of a rainbow of vegetables. Organic Skincare If you have dry skin, Trevor explains why it's not enough to drink a glass of tap water. Most tap water filters out so many vital vitamins and nutrients, leaving our body crying out for hydration. Trevor recommends drinking filtered water. Trevor also recommends eating organic and using organic skincare and other beauty products. She explains what organic means in the skincare industry and why some ingredients are harder, or impossible, to source organically. Finally, we talk about Trevor's own skincare range. It's so simple with so few ingredients but over the years, we've overly complicated skincare. Simple and organic is better. Get colors in your diet. What are your favorite rainbow foods?

Quotes “It's not that certain foods don't have some nutritional value, it's just that they have become a big trigger for a lot of people. Sometimes the body just needs a break from them. Some people can eliminate certain foods for a period of time and work on the cut microbiome and gut health and then maybe go back to eating those foods. We first need to get rid of some of these triggers and give the body a break.” [17:24] “I'm really surprised what people try to get away with at companies. What they will or won't put on the labels and what they consider marketing versus what's truly ethical. They don't always keep you safe.” [24:43] “Sometimes it's hard for people to believe how easy skincare can be. I really think we overcomplicate skincare.” [32:59] “I encourage people to remember the four different areas: clean plate, clean slate, clean body, clean mind. Those are all really important for longevity. If you can do one of these every day, it doesn't have to take a lot of time, it's really those daily lifestyle choices that we make.” [34:27] In This Episode How your skin reflects your inner health [4:30] The 5 new redefined skin types [7:00] What lifestyle changes you can make to improve your skin health [14:30] What foods you should and shouldn't eat [15:30] Why drinking a glass of water isn't enough for hydrating your skin [20:15] What organic means in the skincare industry [25:15] What a thorough skincare routine might look like [31:00] Links & Resources Use Code BERBERINE for 10% off Berberine Support Use Code drgray20 for 20% Off at The Spa Dr. Store Body Essentials Daily Essentials Pearl and Rose Petal Exfoliant Find Out Your Skin Personality Type Find Dr. Trevor Cates Online Follow Dr. Trevor Cates on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Pinterest Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 53: Keto Green Approach To Hormones With Dr. Anna Cabeca Episode 41: How To Reduce Toxins In The Home With Genevieve White Episode 31: Gut/Brain Connection With Dr. Lauryn Lax

Today's special guest Dr. Nader Butto, born in Nazareth (Israel), is a cardiologist who practiced for decades at a conventional hospital in Israel and around the world. After discovering that physically fixing the heart and body does not heal the patient, he started exploring what conventional medicine must be missing. His holistic approach to life and health is not only refreshing but a deeply inspiring paradigm. By uniting science and spirituality in the holistic understanding of how mind, body and soul are connected the mystery of consciousness and love unfolds. Dr. Butto's research into understanding the original and unfolding of disease led him to develop the field of Unified Integrative Medicine. His books and articles explain in depth the philosophy of addressing the universal laws in viewing the human being as a whole entity including body, mind and soul. His approach to human consciousness and soul is integrating science, the universal laws and spirituality, in the most innovative and progressive way. Dr. Butto published several books two of them in English alongside articles in the field of psychiatry and physics. .

Living intentionally is about being present in the moment, eating food that feels good, and taking mental health breaks. Abel James, The Fat-Burning Man, joins me to talk about intentional living, everyday habits, and why he believes intermittent fasting is the best way to eat. Daily Practices for Stress Reduction and Resilience Breathing for 5-10 minutes Writing to take yourself out of the moment Practicing gratitude Being more intentional Giving yourself mental breaks About Abel James Abel James is a New York Times Bestselling Author, musician, and creator of the hit podcast, “Fat-Burning Man.” His new book and audiobook entitled “Designer Babies Still Get Scabies,” a #1 International Bestseller in Humor, is available now. Nutrition and Intentional Living Abel James joins me to talk about making nutrition work for you in a very intentional way. Nutrition is more than following “the rules,” but finding what works best for your body and sticking to that. For Abel, though, there are some food items that he does cut out of his diet. He also believes that intermittent fasting is the best way to make your body feel good. Abel says he goes as long without eating as possible as he finds once you break your fast, you will get hungry again soon. He explains why fasting works so well for so many people. But living an intentional life is more than what you're eating. Abel knows firsthand how trauma and triggering events can impact your entire life - your habits and stress levels - even your desire to eat. The Problem with Social Media Some of the habits that Abel implemented were creating and sticking to daily practices. He gives quite a few examples, but his top tip is to breathe intentionally for 5-10 minutes every single day. This practice helps you return to the moment while stabilizing your stress levels - it's also great for your autonomic nervous system. Abel is also passionate about reducing his time spent on technology, especially social media. While social media has had a really positive impact on our lives and relationships, the habit of checking in regularly takes us out of the moment. Abel explains how destructive social media addiction is, but acknowledges that it's often a necessary evil as a business owner. Abel gives some great tips for navigating social media with as much intention as you can, from shadowbans to conscious consumption. How is your relationship with social media? Do you schedule a time where you intentionally don't use it? Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “When you let the body do what it's supposed to do and you get out of its way, you are meant to feel incredible.” [4:05] “When we go through something traumatic, it's important to realize that we're social animals and if you tried to isolate because of the pain or you tried to keep it from other people, it's really not serving anybody. It's important that we all try to work through this and show our vulnerabilities to the people around us. And, be willing to accept help from people. That exchange can be really difficult, especially for the Type A, working all the time go-getter, but I think it's important that people hear that.” [20:52] “Vitamin D is like the sun. We know we should go out and get some sun, get some vitamin D, but it's not the sexiest thing ever. I think that it's important that people realize it doesn't have to be. A lot of times health is doing those boring things.” [46:48] In This Episode What nutrition habits you should adopt [8:30] Why fasting works so well for so many people [11:15] How trauma and triggering events can help you reframe your thoughts [22:30] Strategies for stress reduction and resilience [25:00] The problem with social media and the internet, especially to your relationships [30:00] How to navigate social media as a creator and as a consumer [44:00] Links & Resources Read About Why Antioxidants are Important and Get 10% Off Mitochondrial Complex with Code ENERGY Take the Your Longevity Blueprint Course & Get Your First Consult with Me Free Use Code wild15 for 15% Off Wild Superfoods Supplements The Fat-Burning Man Show with Abel James Find Abel James Online Follow Abel James on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Pinterest Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 11: Intermittent Fasting Truths With Cynthia Thurlow Episode 35: Happiness: The Missing Ingredient In Health With Margie Bissinger Episode 34: How To Better Your Am Routine With Jane Hogan

Long-term wellness starts at home. By following the DREAM framework to wellness, Dr. Brian Stenzler encourages families of all ages to take control of their lives, improve their wellness, and prioritize chiropractic care. The Five Keys to a Wellness Lifestyle Diet Relaxation Exercise Adjustment Mental Wellness About Dr. Brian Stenzler Dr. Brian Stenzler is the author of "D.R.E.A.M. Wellness: The 5 Keys to Raising Kids for a Lifetime of Physical and Mental Health. He dedicates his professional life to helping families stay healthy and prevent the need for many unnecessary medications and ultimately, missed school and workdays. He guides parents on how to live a wellness lifestyle by avoiding chemical, physical and emotional stressors in and around their households; and how to adapt to the stressors that are unavoidable. As a pediatric and family wellness chiropractor, Dr. Stenzler serves his communities with 3 locations in San Diego. He has served his profession as President of the California Chiropractic Association from 2014-2016, as well as numerous other boards. He currently holds the position of Vice President for the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations. Dr. Stenzler's illustrious 22+ year career has many honors, including New York Chiropractic Council's Chiropractor of the Year, The World Chiropractic Alliance's Outstanding Service Award, The Chiropractic Leadership Alliance's “On Purpose” doctor of the month, 2012 & 2018 Doctor of the Year from the California Chiropractic Association San Diego and the 2015 recipient of their Leadership Award; and he received the California Chiropractic Association's 2019 Distinguished Service Award. Dr. Stenzler travels the world as a guest speaker at conferences and colleges and lectures at numerous businesses, schools, and civic organizations as a wellness expert. He has also been on television and radio shows around the country. Chiropractic Care for Long-Term Wellness Dr. Stenzler joins us by talking about an experience when he was younger that helped him develop his understanding of the human body. In fact, it's not about how you feel about your body, it's about how your body functions. He witnessed someone close to him, who appeared to be the epitome of health pass away due to an undetected heart problem. This set Dr. Stenzler on a mission to find out the difference between health and wellness. His conclusion is that wellness impacts every aspect of our body, including our mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. We should do what we can as early as we can to improve our wellness. One of the reasons Dr. Stenzler is such an advocate of chiropractic care is that chiropractic adjustments target your nervous system. Adjustments do more than just bring your back into alignment; adjustments can have benefits everywhere from pain and migraines to your stress levels to even helping with chronic and long-term health issues like asthma and ADHD. DREAM for a Wellness Lifestyle But Dr. Stenzler is also a firm advocate of a healthy diet. And to him, your diet isn't just what you put in your mouth. His list of items to avoid consists of High Fructose Corn Syrup, Hydrogenated Oils, Artificial Food Colorings, Artificial Sweeteners, and Gossip - yes, gossip. Gossip is as harmful and has as negative an impact on your body as all those other artificial ingredients. Dr. Stenzler explains his approach to wellness using the five key concepts he's shortened to DREAM. Diet, relaxation, exercise, and mental wellness are all essential to focus on. He further explains that being in adjustment comes when you have all other aspects in balance; and that it's also how capable you are of adjusting to change. Finally, Dr. Stenzler talks about stress's impact on the body. Stress can come from so many different aspects of your life, whether physical, mental, environmental, spiritual, or something else entirely. Stress's impact on the body is detrimental to all aspects of your health and he urges you to self-manage your stress levels. Do you have a chiropractor on your healthcare team? I'm a firm believer in the benefit of regular chiropractic adjustments. Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “There's not enough consciousness at home. Sometimes I want to look at the parent and tell them to metaphorically or literally look in the mirror. Their kids are a reflection of them and they'll almost always follow the leader. I know that families that live well together will stay well together. That's the first step in longevity.” [8:09] “Wellness is the integration of mind, body, and spirit affecting your visible body parts but also the trillions of cells that make up your entire body. It's the proactive approach that creates physical, mental, social, and spiritual harmony. It's more than how you feel, it determines how you function. Wellness is the lifestyle that will bring you either more or less health, based on the constructive or destructive choices you make throughout that lifetime.” [9:49] “Your nervous system controls everything. Everyone benefits from a fully functioning nervous system. So whether you're a month old, a day old, or a hundred years old, you would benefit the same as everyone else by being checked by a chiropractor to make sure your body is functioning at its optimal level.” [14:58] “Every decision a person makes is ultimately a value clarification. You know someone's values based on what they're doing. What are they spending their money on? What are they spending their time doing? What choices are they making? If their values are not in alignment with what I'm educating them on, that's on them.” [27:32] In This Episode Why it's not about how you feel, but how you function [6:45] The difference between health and wellness [9:30] Why chiropractic care is beneficial [11:15] What your diet consists of outside the food you eat [15:45] What the five keys to a wellness lifestyle are [18:00] Where our stressors can come from [28:30] Links & Resources Get 10% Off Adrenal Calm with Code CALM Get your first copy of Dream Wellness Book for 99 cents PLUS his "Reduce Screen-Use for Kids", eBook & "Digital Detox for Parents", Workbook (Value $77) Find Dr. Brian Stenzler Online Follow Dr. Brian Stenzler on Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 2: Beyond The Snap, Crackle And Pop W/ Dr. Calla Jayne Kleene Episode 12: How To Build Children's Health With Food With Dr. Ana Maria Temple Episode 15: Community And Curiosity For Longevity With Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum
Castor oil is an herbal medical treatment that's been around for centuries but fell out of fashion sometime in the last few decades. I'm joined by Dr. Marisol Teijeiro, the Queen of the Thrones, to talk about why castor oil is making a comeback, all the incredible health benefits, and why she recommends it to all her patients. The three areas castor oil packs help the most with: Stools - helps regulate your bowel movements Sleep - helps you get more restorative sleep Stress - helps reduce your regular stress levels About Dr. Marisol Teijeiro Dr. Marisol Teijeiro, ND & Queen of the Thrones™️, empowers people to own their throne (yes potty time), purpose, and passion in life. She is the creator of the easy and mess-less Castor Oil Pack used to heal the gut, improve digestion, sleep, and most importantly, your hormone balance. She teaches all over the world and features on various TV programs including national syndicated NBC Bloom, as well as The Marilyn Denis Show in Canada. She is a published author of “OH SH*T!” the 3 stress-less steps to connect, clear, and calm your digestion. Why Use Castor Oil? Dr. Marisol Teijeiro shares the story of how she started using castor oil packs, after years of avoiding them, to heal so many of her chronic health problems. She explains why she revamped the traditional castor oil pack to make it cleaner and easier to use. Marisol talks about how and why castor oil works as it does and what benefits it has for the body - there are so many! Castor oil has actually been a medical treatment for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years but it did fall out of use. It's a powerful tool to improve your gut health and help with detox. You can also combine it with essential oils and use it in the sauna to really double down on the health benefits. Marisol praises castor oil for helping with your stools, sleep, and stress which all of us struggle with at times in our life. How to Safely Use Castor Oil It's actually really easy to start reaping the benefits of castor oil. Marisol says that there's no prep needed, you simply start using the castor oil packs. There are a few ground rules to keep in mind, such as using your pack for a minimum of one hour per day and changing your pack regularly, but otherwise, you should be good to dive right in. Marisol explains why pregnant women shouldn't use castor oil in any form. It's very important to heed this warning! When it comes to buying castor oil, Marisol says to make sure you're buying an organic oil. But more important than that, make sure it doesn't come in a plastic bottle. Finally, Marisol explains the added benefit of castor oil as a hair treatment! Have you used a regular castor oil treatment before? How did you find it helped with your overall health? Did you use it in combination with any other detox methods? Let me know in the comments on the episode page. Call the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic today and schedule your first appointment at 319-363-0033. Quotes “I made it my mission to get these castor oil packs to everyone and educate on how to improve the three most important factors that mess up on every woman: Your sleep, your stools, and your stress. When you work on those, so many of your conditions can literally go away.” [9:38] “The gut is the hub of the hormonal system, the nervous system, and the immune system and we must pay attention to it. If our hormones are off, it's because our gut is off. If our immune system is off, it's because our gut is off. And if our nervous system is off, we're anxious or depressed, it's because our gut is off.” [26:57] “I wish I would have started castor oil packs twenty years ago! I've been doing them for ten years now, but it took me ten years to warm up to them. I hope the listeners out there don't take ten years to warm up to it. Take action and move in the right direction, you have the power and the ability to change those three annoyances in your life: stools, sleep, and stress.” [34:09] “Look at those three most important aspects: your sleep, your stress, and your stools. When you're commanding those and owning them, you're truly being the queen on the throne. You understand what your stool is telling you, what your sleep is telling you, and what your stress levels are telling you, that's just a complete game-changer for your life. It does more wonders than any supplement or tool can do.” [52:38] In This Episode How caster oil packs work [10:00] Why you should never buy castor oil in plastic [20:00] How castor oil packs help with detox and improving gut health [28:00] How to start using castor oil packs [29:00] How often you should change your castor oil pack [37:00] What to look for in a castor oil [41:45] Who can't use castor oil packs [44:00] How to use castor oil to promote hair growth [46:00] Links & Resources Use Code CALM for 10% Off Adrenal Calm Download Your Free Copy of 50 Shades of Poo Use Code DRGRAY10 for 10% off Castor Oil Packs at This Link Only Find Dr. Marisol Teijeiro Online Follow Dr. Marisol Teijeiro on Instagram | Facebook | YouTube Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 42: Benefits Of Sauna Therapy With Nicole Carlson Episode 43: Liver Cleansing With Steven Dake Episode 40: Power Of Essential Oils With Jodi Sternoff Cohen
Combining cutting-edge Western medicine with the ancient wisdom of Eastern traditions can provide for a holistic approach to cancer care. There are a variety of ways to manage common side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, fatigue, anxiety and pain.

Dr. G is an authority in environmental medicine with an extensive background in education and years of practice in the field. Real-life experience was the catalyst for Dr. G to deeply investigate the realms of Integrative medicine, in support of his mother who got cancer. His passion and purpose were found in that process as he learned how much the toxins from our external environment played a MAJOR role in our health. This conversation exudes a tremendous amount of insight into the realm of non-toxic living and environmental understanding. Some highlights in this talk are: Optimizing resiliency with ways to naturally strengthen your immune system What happens to the nervous system when mental & emotional trauma is held in the body + how to release it The importance of morning rituals to prime your nervous system + increase overall well-being and functionality Shattering conventional medical paradigms by getting to the core of healing ALL areas, not just masking symptoms Mold + how to identify it and recognize reactions Small, yet profound shifts you can begin making today with everyday products to embody cleaner living (i.e. makeup, bedding, cookware, cleaning products, etc.) And so much more! I could've talked to Dr. G for hours on all things wellness, as he is really is a leader on the subject and so much fun to talk to! This conversation is captivating from start to finish, I would LOVE to hear your favorite takeaways in the comments below or/and on your IG stories.

Various forms of fasting have become one of the favored strategies for dieting in recent years. One approach, prolonged fasting, has numerous benefits when it comes to dieting and aging well that differentiates it from other methods. Dr. James Kelley joins me to discuss whether prolonged fasting is right for you. Benefits of prolonged fasting include: Neuroplasticity Lower parasympathetic tone Improved heart rate variability Reduced insulin intolerance Increased cellular health Lower blood pressure About Dr. James Kelley James completed his M.D. at The Ohio State University and was the inaugural Research Fellow at the Ohio Health Research and Innovation Institute. He finished his MBA at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Cell Biology from the University of Virginia and completed his Neuroscience Master's coursework at Miami University. Prior to joining the L-Nutra team, he was the head of Inventor Services at The Innovation Institute, a partnership with the Cleveland Clinic Innovations group focused on developing and commercializing new and innovative healthcare solutions. What Prolonged Fasting is and How it Can Help Prolonged fasting involves going without food for at least a day or two. This leads the body to shift how it processes food and leads to metabolic changes. It usually takes at least a day for the body to reach ketosis, making prolonged fasting an effective way to manage weight. It also supports autophagy, your body's method of cleaning out damaged cells so that healthier ones can be regenerated. There are risks to prolonged fasting, however. Dr. Kelley emphasizes the importance of working with a knowledgeable practitioner to make sure that your body makes the right adjustments without doing harm to important systems and organs. Why Prolonged Fasting Doesn't Need to Be Hard Fasting is not an easy thing to do. Many people don't make it much more than a day. To help people achieve the benefits of a prolonged fast while still allowing them to eat, Dr. Kelley's company has developed ProLon. This five-day plant-based meal program has been scientifically researched and designed to help keep your cells in a state of fasting while providing your body with essential sustenance and nutrition. When the effects of prolonged fasting are achieved, clinical trials have shown numerous specific benefits. Dr. Kelley describes how participants often lose visceral fat, maintain healthy levels of IGF1 which helps with better aging, and achieve an overall better metabolic balance.

Quotes “Once you get your body into fasting-shape after a couple cycles of prolonged fasts, you may not have to do it very often. Whereas intermittent fasting has benefits that you would get if you did it every day.” [11:52] “Growth is essentially just aging. While it's super important for things like maintaining muscle-mass… there are a lot of benefits to growth; you just have to balance those against the risks and the downsides. That's one of the reasons why we think every now and then doing a couple days of fasting may be really beneficial.” [17:55] “It's a great mental reset tool to get you back - to help kickstart a healthier lifestyle. That is the number one thing we've heard from ninety percent of our customers; it is much easier to adopt a healthy lifestyle after a detox.” [34:17] In This Episode What intermittent fasting and time-restricted fasting is [2:12] How prolonged fasting is different from other more common fasting methods [5:05] How autophagy helps the body build healthier cells when fasting [8:58] What happens to nutrient-sensing pathways during a fast [14:50] How Prolon can help you achieve the benefits of a prolonged fast [19:32] What clinical trials have shown researchers [31:50] Tips for being more comfortable while fasting and who shouldn't do it [35:20] How ProLon has changed since its initial development [40:47] Links & Resources Read The Magnificence of Magnesium and use code MAGNESIUM for 10% Off Magnesium Products ProLon ProLon Professional Reference this podcast to get $25 off your order of either Prolon or ProLon Professional when you order from the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic.
