“I never really say get rid of your stress. We have to find a way to manage our stress,” shares Rachel Martin, IFM Certified Practitioner and Family Nurse Practitioner of 6 years. Rachel was drawn to functional medicine when her third child was born with a rare genetic disorder called congenital central hypoventilation syndrome. Then, Rachel was under a massive amount of chronic stress from taking care of her older children, opening her practice, and managing her youngest child's condition, and her gut health was getting worse and worse. The standard medical interventions for treating digestive problems were not helping because they weren't addressing the root cause of the problems. As Rachel began to learn more about functional medicine, she realized that the way to really help people make long term health changes was to tackle the root cause and focus on the gut-brain connection. It is not possible to fix gut issues long term without taking into account the psychological component. The gut and the brain are intricately connected and in times of stress, people will often find their digestive problems getting worse. When people are stressed, they often aren't eating properly or sleeping enough and all of these factors need to be considered. Some issues that many people face when starting functional medicine treatment are that they overdo it on the supplements or they get into a neverending elimination diet with no attempt to work any of the foods back in later on. Rachel helps her patients to go a step beyond the basic elimination diet and supplements by incorporating daily rituals that help reduce stress. She recommends walking, yoga, and meditation to her patients in place of more high intensity exercises to help them bring mindfulness into their day. She also focuses more on helping clients know what to eat, rather than only focusing on what to avoid. If you want to improve your health long-term, you need to address the root causes like stress, diet, and sleep. The gut and brain are very much connected and when you improve your mental health and take time for self-care, you will improve your physical health simultaneously. Tune into this week's episode of The Catalyst to learn more about daily rituals you can add to your routine to help reduce stress and heal your gut-brain connection. Quotes • “It's not enough to work on the gut. You have to address the gut-brain connection. And you have to address stress.” (6:08-6:14 | Rachel) • “I never really say get rid of your stress. We have to find a way to manage our stress.” (8:54-9:00 | Rachel) • “You should not have a part-time job taking supplements, nor should you have to have a part-time job to afford all of your supplements because you're taking so many.” (13:56-14:04 | Rachel) • “I've had so many people who have come to me, they're all in their 30s and they're exhausted. They're like, ‘I'm doing everything right.' And then their quote, unquote, right is intermittent fasting, low carb diets, and high intensity interval training. And I'm like, this is just too much for you right now.” (16:46-17:06 | Rachel) • “I want them to literally not see me for years or maybe we have the occasional maintenance. But I want my patients to stay well.” (25:00-25:09 | Rachel) • “Stop focusing on don't eat this, don't eat that. Tell me what to eat.” (28:34-28:38 | Rachel) Links Connect with Rachel Martin: Website: www.rootandritualfxmed.com Instagram: @rootandritualfxmed Functional Micropractice Checklist Connect with Lara: Website: https://drlarasalyer.com Instagram: @drlarasalyer Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drlarasalyer Linked-In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/drlarasalyer/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/DrLaraSalyer TikTok: @Creativity.Doctor Podcast production and show notes provided by HiveCast.fm
In functional and precision medicine, we know the importance of a healthy microbiome as it relates to overall health and wellness. Translating this into clinical practice is an art. Rachel Martin, a functional medicine nurse practitioner, specializes in gut health but through a different lens.

In today's episode Rachel Martin discusses her unique program “Go With Your Gut.” She talks about the importance of the gut-brain axis, building community, mitigating stress, and why this should be the first line of treatment for gut health.

Geena Davis is no stranger to the spotlight. But in her new memoir, Dying of Politeness, the Academy Award-winning actor remembers growing up full of insecurities and self-criticisms.

For many in the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth was synonymous with the monarchy. As she's laid to rest, King Charles faces a potentially "existential" challenge in convincing the British and global public that the monarchy is a force for good, according to historian Dan Jones.That may be a difficult task in the Commonwealth, a group of 56 countries connected in part by a history of British colonial rule. Many see the monarchy as inextricably linked to the injustices of that colonial system. Jones talks to NPR's Rachel Martin about the Queen's legacy and the shoes Charles must now fill.Jamaican member of Parliament Lisa Hanna explains why she believes the monarchy is at a crossroads and must use this moment to correct historical wrongs committed by the British Empire against people of the Caribbean.In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment to help you make sense of what's going on in your community.Email us at email@example.com.
In February of 2021, three severe winter storms swept through Texas. The state was not prepared. More than five million people were left without heat and running water, in the bitter cold, for days. It's been a year and a half since that massive power outage, but Texans still have questions about whether the power grid can hold up to extreme winter and summer weather. What does the climate crisis, coupled with aging infrastructure, mean for people in Texas and beyond? In this episode, Rachel Martin speaks with Mose Buchele from NPR member station KUT in Austin, who has been exploring these questions in the new season of The Disconnect.

When it comes to raising children, says Helena Andrews-Dyer, there are complicated dynamics connected to race and class – which she writes about in her book The Mamas. In an interview with Rachel Martin, Dyer details the trials and tribulations of being a first-time parent, attending social events with other moms and all the pressure put on her internally and externally to make sure her child turns out alright. But it's her experience as a Black mom among a sea of white mothers that pushed her to reimagine her parenting "through a larger lens of race, and class, and gentrification."
Today's interviews center on children's books with wildly different topics, but they both aim to make reading more accessible for kids. Nikole Hannah Jones, working with Renee Watson, turned the 1619 Project into a picture book called Born On The Water. They told NPR their goal was "to say to young people - to young Black Americans, you belong here." Next, Adam Rubin has on his collection of short stories that are all different but share the same title: The Ice Cream Machine. Rubin told NPR's Rachel Martin that there are so many ways to tell a story. This is an encore episode from March 2022.

“As soon as you get over the fear, the doubt, the uncertainty... on the other side of that as soon as you do it, you do have that confidence, you do it with clarity. It's just on the other side of you taking that leap.” - Shawn Mynar “That's why I love having a signature program so much is because it is bigger than you and you are building a community for other people to have support from other people.” - Shawn Mynar “There is nothing wrong with asking for help, especially in the beginning.” - Rachel Martin “One of my core values is affordable functional medicine, having a group program is a way to do that. In this way, I can still share my gifts with those who need help.” - Rachel Martin

A unique combination of education and experience brought Rachel Martin to launch Oceano Wines with husband and co-proprietor, Kurt Deutsch in 2016. A Virginia native, Martin was present at the inception of what is now considered one of that state's premier wine producers, Boxwood Estate Winery, in 2005. As Executive Vice President of Winery Operations, Martin's job was to oversee all facets of production, sales and marketing of Boxwood's award-winning whites, rosés and Bordeaux-style red blends. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston/Tufts University), Martin decided to make her love of wine a full-time vocation. She parlayed a degree in Viticulture and Enology from Napa Valley College into a spot in the prestigious Sensory Evaluation program at the University of Bordeaux School of Enology. And from there, Martin ushered in the very first wines at Boxwood, located in Middleburg, a bucolic area previously better known for horses than vines. Appreciating the distinctiveness of Middleburg's terroir, Martin spearheaded the move toward securing a coveted American Viticultural Area designation from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, the federal agency charged with evaluating the merits of all such applications. The petition she authored on behalf of the region was approved in 2012, making Middleburg Virginia the state's seventh AVA. Martin's forward thinking led directly to Middleburg having its own wine identity separate from the more generic Virginia designation, making her well suited to again start from scratch with Oceano Wines. None other than the esteemed author Jancis Robinson noted Martin's marketing savvy in her book “American Wine.” Martin is a member of Les Dames d'Escoffier International New York and Washington, D.C chapters and was the first woman to be inducted into the District of Columbia chapter of the International Wine & Food Society. A founding board member, she is also closely involved with the beverage/culinary aspects of the annual Middleburg Film Festival. Hear her here.

April is National Poetry Month, so to celebrate we are bringing you a conversation with poet Ocean Vuong. His new collection, Time Is A Mother, is about his grief after losing family members.

Comic Phoebe Robinson told NPR's Rachel Martin that she doesn't wake up every day thinking "time to dismantle systemic racism!" But since she has a platform, she might as well use it to bring about some positive change. She also told Martin that her dream life involves buying sensible cardigans, getting day drunk with Kathy Lee and Hoda, and a loving marriage with Robert DeNiro. Robinson's book You Can't Touch My Hair: And Other Things I Still Have to Explain goes into the racism she experiences and why she would like to date either Michael Fassbender or Michael B. Jordan (sorry Mr. DeNiro).
