PODCAST: Navigating life with chemical sensitivities and mold

In this episode, I shared some insights after being on a quick getaway to Ithaca New York and staying in an AirBnb that used laundry detergent with heavy perfumes. 

I referenced two of my past podcast episodes on mold, you can find those links below.

One of the things I know about myself is that if I go and stay anywhere for any length of time, I don't want to be trapped with chemicals. Like a long car ride with someone who uses a lot of laundry detergent, or sleeping a bed with all those chemicals either. 

To me, it's obvious to avoid personal care and home care products that have toxins in them. To the rest of the world it's not. So, instead of demanding change from the world, I know I must be prepared to adapt to it so I don't react symptomatically. 

In case you have not yet made the switch in your personal...

PODCAST: Living a turned on life

In this episode, I shared some insights after being on a quick getaway to Ithaca New York. (By the way, have you ever been?)

I referenced a past podcast with Amy Love; 'Pleasure is the way out of burnout' and talked about what it takes to live a turned on life in the modern day (it may not be what you think). 

Listen to Episode #68: Living a turned on life : Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 

My micro semi-local getaway was very intentional to be able to connect more deeply with nature (in a new place) and with my man. We both needed to change things up. 

The thing is that nature therapy isn't just a nice to have, it's a need to have. Humans are designed to thrive in a more natural environment and setting. It support cognitive function, physical health and psychological well-being. The further you get away from nature the more lost you become. 

While we were away, I was able to take a break from my work routine which is always...

Healthy homemade electrolyte drink, better for you than Gatorade

Hydration, a super basic habit we all need to employ so we can enjoy vibrant health. The first sign of dehydration is fatigue. And no, I'm not talking about just plain water. 

Please go check out my podcast episode where I might have ranted a bit about proper hydration in a persuasive yet big picture overview way like I tend to do.

It's episode #34; 'The Essential Habit You Need To Increase Energy' and you can listen HERE. 

Summer time is often when most people start to pay more attention to their hydration, because the sun and heat take it out of you. The problem is, most people are not getting sufficient minerals (electrolytes) to deeply hydrated cells, tissues and organs. 

So, I decided to make it super easy for you and created a homemade electrolyte recipe that is a replacement for Gatorade. We all know about Gatorade, right? We don't want the artificial colorings, preservatives, sugars and poor mineral forms from Gatorade. So, it's best to make our own. It's also...

Why having a healthy microbiome matters

While most of the population lives in fear and trusts the main stream narrative, I’ll just be over here benefiting from huge huge advances in technology and science in relation to the human microbiome. 

Check out this video where I unbox a BiomeFX stool analysis and share what it is and why I love it. 

To have a healthy microbiome is to have optimal health yet no one alive has perfected this yet and it’s no wonder. We are exposed to more chemicals and toxins than ever before and decreasing food diversity and quality.

If you’re one of the deep divers and you want to dig in to your microbiome to optimize your health, keep reading. 

One of the most common trends I'm seeing in my practice as I review more BiomeFX results is low levels of good bacteria. 

In ones microbiome a low diversity of good bacteria can cause more issues than high levels of pathogens

And it’s far more common. 

It’s dysbiosis in the sense that the body does not...

PODCAST: Safe Summer Sun Sessions

In this episode, I chat about how to prepare your skin to build your solar callous and stay safe in the sun. It's more about what you do before hand. This is an important part of life we can all improve and it will be important for the rest of our living days. I've got lots of tips so you can create a year round plan to enjoy the sun and stay safe out there! 

Listen to Episode #67: Safe Summer Sun Sessions : Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 

Unfortunately we have created a fear of the sun in our culture. Not only that but we've created a bad habit of slathering ourselves with toxic sunscreen. Yet, we cannot thrive without the sun on our skin for various health benefits. 

Really understanding safe sun exposure is about understanding how light interacts with our body and our cells. 

We want to figure out how to do this as much as possible in micro doses so that we become more tolerant to sun exposure while also doing the...

PODCAST: NSAIDs deplete glutathione (+what's up with NAC?)

In this episode, I'm dishing out some important deeper health connections in light of the epidemic of NSAID use in this country. Folks, we have an inflammation problem but not a figuring out why solution (for the most part).

Listen to Episode #66: NSAIDs deplete glutathione (+what's up with NAC) : Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 


The problem is it sets us up for deeper trouble. Ibuprofen depletes glutathione - glutathione is present in every cell in the body, it is a key regulator of the immune system. It's especially important for liver function and for detoxification.

Low glutathione levels are associated with over 74 DIS - EASES. It's been widely studied and we've found that almost 80% of people with chronic ailments were found to be deficiency in glutathione.

I also shared about how NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine) is a precursor to glutathione and it's recently been pulled out of circulation for purchase. 

Hopefully you will have a big...

PODCAST: Mineral Balancing for Blood Pressure

In this episode, I chat about the many moving parts behind high blood pressure and how medication will never correct the underlying imbalance. The problem with a medication only approach is because the imbalances affect more than just one function. 

Listen to Episode #65: Mineral Balancing for Blood Pressure: Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 


Minerals are KEY in regulating blood pressure. Today we have so many mineral deficiencies or excesses that impact our physiology and they need to be looked at together. This is how we avoid ISOLATIONISTIC thinking that leads to adding bandaids on top of bandaids and never ever correcting function. 

I share trends/patterns and imbalances I see in my practice working with HTMA that correlate with blood pressure. Unfortunately, high blood pressure is not assessed thoroughly in the allopathic world. 

I like to solve the biochemistry problem versus thinking we are 'solving' the problem with a...

PODCAST: Health Insurance does not ensure true health

In this episode, I share why I don't believe our 'health care' system inspires true health and why I don't take health insurance and how that's a VERY GOOD THING. 

You see, we've got a lot to think deeply about when it comes to the current system in our country; is it truly in favor of humans thriving or has it perpetuated a lack of trust in our own sovereignty and ability to heal ourselves. 

Ultimately, I think we need to question this heavily right now if we want to truly gain health or recover our health AND KEEP IT. Is health insurance, ensuring true health? Or are we losing sight of our own responsibility in creating optimal health and well being. 

Listen to Episode #64: Health Insurance does not ensure true health : Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 


I share some of my own stories of how incredibly frustrating it was trying to find healthy doctors who actually listened to me and gave me any other treatment options other than...

How Mineral Imbalances Impact Our Personality, Emotions & Physical Health

In this podcast episode I was a guest on my friend Cailee of The Ripened Heart's podcast. We chatted about how I've observed that mineral imbalances do affect our emotions and personality in addition to our physical health. 

Did you know that having a mineral imbalance can have an impact on your personality and how you see the world? Mineral balancing is a delicate dance because all minerals have a relationship with each other. Take too much calcium and you get a magnesium deficiency. Consume too much salt and you deplete potassium. It's complicated stuff! And with all of the stress we've been experiencing in the past year our bodies are more depleted of minerals than ever before.

Find this guest episode of mine with Cailee over HERE

 

I shared some personal stories and examples so you can realize just how interconnected we are individually. As a whole person, it makes sense that all of who we are; mind, body, emotions, personality or soul is all connected. It's then...
