PODCAST: Flow With Your Feminine Energy

In this podcast episode, I'm diving into how to flow with your feminine energy to avoid burning out trying to hustle in your 'masculine' energy too much.

The masculine energy likes to DO, and the feminine energy craves to just BE. If you've hung out with me at all on the podcast or social you'll have heard me time and time again encouraging women to stop DOING so much and start BEING more.

I personally got burned the heck out as a single mother and sole-preneur because I spent a lot of time learning how to operate in my masculine energy. It took me a long time to figure this part of my health out and when I did it brought so much relief. It freed up so much energy to allow myself to operate more in my natural energy which is my feminine energy. I began to FLOW in my life, work and relationships.

I have seen this tendency for the modern woman and mother to be very hyper-vigilant which is more of a masculine energy. Losing sight of the beauty and freedom to be more in their true...

PODCAST: Red Light Therapy with Kris Kross of EMR-tek

In this podcast episode (#28), I have a dynamic conversation with Kris Kross who owns a Red Light company called EMR-tek. We talk about what red light therapy is, why we need it for your health, how blue light harms us as well as some practical steps you can take to swap your light. If you want to learn how to turbo charge your cells and reduce harm from excess blue light definitely give this episode a listen.

Blue light also causes you to use up your glutathione reserves, so you end up leaking energy and wasting your glutathione. If we could just swap out our light we can give ourselves a better fighting chance.

It's all about Harm Reduction

Blue light is toxic to you the worst part is oxidative stress and free radical damage. You can turbo charge your ATP with red light (the correct spectrum of light for human health)
.

The #1 thing you can start to do today to help with harm reduction is swap your light (at home and in your work environment to the degree it’s possible).

PODCAST: What's up with histamine intolerance?

And why is it sucking away my joy? It won't once you learn more about YOUR own histamine symptoms and how to support your body in light of them. In this episode, I'm dishing out a super quick high level overview on histamine intolerance. What it is, what the symptoms are and what some of the root issues are.

This way you can take a more holistic approach to support your health as well as recover. Instead of just taking a 'bandaid' approach, like OTC meds which never get to the root cause of your symptoms. News flash; there are no quick fixes so stop looking for them. Learn to embrace the learning curve so you can get ot the root and save yourself a lot of future time spent being 'ill' or having to constantly find 'work arounds'  for your health flare ups. There is so much joy waiting to be experienced when you have a fully alive body.

PODCAST: Excess Copper's Effect on Your Digestion and Gut

In this episode, I"m picking back up with my series of podcast episodes on copper. Go back and start with episode #18 if you haven't been following along. That shared I'm digging in to how excess imbalanced copper can wreak havoc on your digestion and gut over time.

{You can also find my podcast: A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher and Spotify }

People with excess copper stored in their body very often will also have gut concerns, including candida and yeast. Excess copper allowed to continue leads to mineral burnout that leaves your body unable to properly produce hydrochloric acid in your stomach. This reduction in HCl leads to poor nutrient absorption, gluten sensitivity and yes even leaky gut. If you don't know what leaky gut is or why it matters, go back and read my post; '8 Signs You May Have Leaky Gut'.

One of copper's roles is that of an anti-fungal, and when it is in the right balance in your body, it helps to control fungi, yeast or candida in...

PODCAST: Top Mistakes Women Make When 'Trying' To Recover Their Health

In this episode, I'm sharing my observations on the top mistakes women make when they are 'trying' to recover their health or before they even start. This is to bring awareness so you can re-frame how you view your health journey.

The first thing, I think needs to be understood is how your brain tries to keep you safe. It's important to understand you are not a victim of your circumstances - you are a co-creator of your life. I dig into this a bit more in the podcast.

Tune in to get a loving kick towards choosing yourself and laying a foundation for your health. It's not about adding more to your to-do list, it's about creating a lifestyle that allows your health to thrive.

8 Signs You May Have Leaky Gut

One of the keys to recovering from burnout includes healing your gut. When I say, healing your gut, I'm referring primarily to your small intestines. However, your entire GI tract and digestive system all work together, heal together and fall apart together. That shared, your GUT impacts your entire human system. No part of you works in isolation, ever.

Leaky gut is when the integrity of your small intestine lining is impaired and becomes permeable. This permeability allows the contents in your small intestines to leak into your bloodstream and cause a reaction by your body. Your body sees this leakage as a foreign invader and mounts an inflammatory response (or attack). It can be slow and subtle until it's not. That's when your symptoms may get louder and more obvious to you.

I shared 8 signs you may have leaky gut in an IGTV video (HERE). If you learn better from conversations than you do from reading, head on over and check it out. There's a lot more in the video than what I'll...

PODCAST: Mindful (Impactful) Movement with Master TTapp Trainer Margaret Barry

In this episode I have a very fascinating and empowering conversation with my colleague Margaret Barry about mindful but impactful movement with TTapp.

Since many of my clients come to me in a state of burnout or chronic fatigue, talking about appropriate effective movement is a must have conversation. Too much or too little while ignoring the lymphatic system and fascia is very common. 

Listen in to learn the myriad of benefits from this modality of movement- that saves you time, does not require a gym or equipment, increases bone density, targets multiple muscles with each move, pumps your lymph, helps keep your fascia smooth and can benefit anyone. 

I had so much fun talking to Margaret, my inner nerd was so turned on learning all about the body in such a holistic way. This episode is one to listen to more than once. Enjoy!

PODCAST: What you need to know before you supplement with zinc

In this podcast episode, I'm zeroing in on zinc and why you don’t want to just blindly supplement with it. I’ve kept my mouth shut long enough. As I’ve watched all the health recs in holistic circles over this past year, I’ve internally cringed a lot at posts that are DECLARATIVE about what nutrients you need to fight the C word or ‘boost your immune system’.

Let me explain why…

Holistically speaking, you and everyone else are very different in  your current biochemistry
While you may be human and certain nutrients need to be on board for certain things
You are also a complex holistic piece of art who cannot be ‘treated’ like anyone else.

Since zinc has come into the spotlight quite a bit lately, I'm here to give you some insight before you go out and just start taking it blindly.

I have worked with hundreds and hundreds of people (mostly women then kids some men) and observed how zinc can be quite tricky to navigate.

Yes zinc...

PODCAST: Your brain on copper

In this episode, I'm continuing on with my series about copper and mineral burnout and how it impacts your health. Specifically, I discuss (albeit briefly) the psychological and emotional effects of excess unbound copper. When copper builds up and is not bound for use, it gets stored in various organs. The liver is the first place, but once the liver can't hold any more it begins to build up in the brain.

Excessive levels in the brain lead to depression, anxiety and eventually neurotransmitter imbalances. So if you do not understand this downstream affect of mineral burnout, you'll likely only take stabs at your health with a 'bandaid' approach instead of getting to the root which is assessing your own biochemistry in a holistic manner.

I highly recommend going back and listening to episodes 18 (HERE),19 (HERE) and 20 (HERE) first.

PODCAST: Copper’s Impact on your Adrenals & Thyroid

In this episode, I pick up with my conversation educating you about the downstream effects copper has on your mineral system and your body. I highly recommend going back and listening to episodes 18 (HERE) and 19 (HERE) first. 

In order to help exhausted women get their spark back I want to share how the body melts down so you can stop piece-mealing your health and dig into supporting your entire system and self (mind/body/emotions).

High level overview of what burnout actually feels like
How excessive tissue copper leads to a depression of both adrenal and thyroid activity
