Ali is an acupuncturist, a friend of mine, and the founder of AliDamron.com. In this interview, she shares how she transitioned to a fully online practice - even before the pandemic hit! How she does it (not on zoom calls actually!), how she got so busy she decided to stop doing in-office acupuncture, and things she wish she knew sooner in her career. Ali has lots of great and inspiring advice to share, I hope you'll give it a listen...
Here's the Deal BFF Ali Damron is back to talk to us about stress and what stress is ACTUALLY doing to your body, your hormones and why it's holding you back from your physique goals. All year there has been a theme...stress and mindset. I didn't plan it this way, but that's the way things are shaking out. What you need to remember most is: 1) it's not the stress that gets you, it's your perception of it and 2) you are resilient and you can handle any stress that is thrown your way so long as you have recovery practices in place. Ali breaks down for us the different types of stress: mental, emotional and physical and explains what exactly that stress does to our hormones and why that can lean to more anxiety and this is a never ending cycle of dis regulation. One of my favorite take-home messages from Ali was, "it my job to send messages of safety to my brain and body." Remember, your body only cares about keeping you alive and in homeostasis. So any hormonal or physical change you have is do to a message that your brain received. Your body is responding in the way you are telling it. Are you constantly sending your body messages of S.O.S? Of course this leads to the discussion of how can I test my hormones and it really a matter of two things: Which hormones should I be testing? What is the right test? When should I be testing?It's important to work with a provider that can help you navigate all of this.In addition to the testing, Ali describes the 5 Pillars that she uses to help clients feel and look their best: MINDSET Nutrition Sleep Exercise Supplement, vitamins and herbsThis episode is FULL of actionable things you can start doing TODAY to feel your best and support your body.

When I started nutrition coaching 5 years ago, I had not clue what Hashimoto's was and I didn't work with any Hashimoto's clients. Fast forward to today and now in each round of Lift to Get Lean, I can always count on a handful of clients dealing with this autoimmune disease. From the Mayo Clinic: Hashimoto's is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam's apple. The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body's functions.Symptoms include: Constipation Always cold Weight gain or stubborn weight loss Thinning hair Joint pain Fatigue Heavy or irregular periodsIn this episode, Ali explains not only what we should be looking for, but also how can heal from the disease, what our nutrition needs to look like and should one try to lose weight while dealing with Hashimoto's. The take home message is, gut health is extremely important and lifestyle factors play a huge role in how you look and feel.
