Lifestyle medicine and advocacy with Michelle Breau

The Simplicity Sessions

Welcome back to The Simplicity Sessions, I'm delighted that you’ve joined us today. My name is Jenn Pike, your host, registered holistic nutritionist, medical exercise specialist, the best-selling author of the Simplicity Project, and the creator of the women's revolutionary health program, The Hormone Project. Today, we are going to kick start today’s episode by briefly discussing an area of interest expressed by you, our community, which is healthy skincare. We will then be joined by a very good friend of mine, Michelle Breau. Michelle is a mother and a wife and she is an advocate for the health and for medical freedom. Michelle is a holistic nutritionist who really believes that lifestyle medicine is the way of the future. And her goal is to provide her clients with space for that concept of wholeness to be explored as we collectively return to the most basic principles of health amidst an extremely complex world. I do want to give you a warning today before going in to listen to this episode. Not that your heart's not going to be able to take what we have a conversation about, but we do go into depth around the conversation around vaccines.

If you have a question for me and my team, send it on over to hello@jennpike.com or via Instagram at @jennpike and I'll do my best to share helpful insights, thoughts, and advice.  Access links to Michelle Breau’s multi-platform publishings as well as social / websites below, in the ‘Connect with us’ section of the show notes.

From the media perspective, they'll say that is an anti-something or a conspiracy theorist.’ “It's not that we just can't accept that our world is changing, It's what do I do about it?... every voice is so important in this evolution that we're going through. But there are different ways that you can go about it. It's a matter of what your comfort level is” “If you are living in a lot of fear and uncertainty we have to start really, really small. We have to start within our own four walls. How can you create a deeper level of calm, certainty, warmth, and connectedness in your own home?” “We've got to be balanced out ourselves first before we branch out. And I think that is such an important reminder.” Additional Information About Jenn: Jenn studied and graduated with honors in Human Anatomy and Physiology with such a passion that it propelled her to continue her education over many years.

029: Gut Health, Leaky Gut, Autoimmunity, Prebiotics vs. Probiotics, and the Gluten Connection with Michelle Breau


Why does it seem like the words LEAKY GUT, MICROBIOME, and GLUTEN are being thrown around so often these days? Well, that’s a complex question I could answer about a dozen different ways. As a matter of fact, once you begin learning about the gut, you quickly realize that gut health is the foundation for overall health. You also start to realize that the way the average modern citizen is living is NOT in favour of a strong foundation. The odds are against the vast majority of us. This episode of GROWradio will only “scratch the surface” of a topic I could speak about for days on end. I hope it serves you and those you love in some way. Be sure to bring a notebook, because this one’s jam packed! In this episode we discuss: What “the gut” actually is and where it begins and ends. How gut health can impact the entire body, and why it’s one of the most integral foundational pieces to overall wellness. What causes food sensitivities, why you may have some newer one’s you never had as a child. 3 simple, yet powerful steps you can take to improve your gut health, and nourish both body and mind. You can find the show notes for this episode at michellebreau.com/podcast/029. Be sure to snap a screenshot and share it over on Instagram, tagging me @iammichellebreau, or leave a review on iTunes if you've found anything to support you here. ENJOY! In great health, Michelle

016: Elimination Diets - What you need to know with Michelle Breau


In the GROWradio Listener’s Lounge last week, I asked what you wanted to hear more of on the podcast, and the resounding answer was that you wanted more SOLO episodes where I teach and speak about topics I am interested in. This week, I decided to go with the short and sweet, but VERY important topic of elimination diets. They’re all the rage these days, and they can be done in a way that is supportive to the body and in helping us to pinpoint potential triggers of your symptoms. That being said, they can also be done in a way that can be potentially dangerous to our health. This episode was recorded as a resource to help you really understand the purpose of creating an elimination style protocol, but as always, it is not meant to diagnose or treat any sort of condition. I recommend working with your own practitioner on uncovering whether something like this would be right for you.
