148: Body: Everything You Need to Know to Prevent, Manage, and Potentially Reverse an Autoimmune Condition with Dr. Alison Danby

Now sitting at nearly 150 episodes, I’ve come to realize that there’s one topic that we haven’t unpacked or explored nearly as much as we should have. And that is autoimmune conditions. Autoimmune conditions affect women infinitely more frequently than they do men — and especially for busy, stressed-out ladies like ourselves! So today, I’ve asked one of my friends — Dr. Alison Danby, a renowned expert on autoimmune conditions — to come on and share her wisdom all about autoimmune conditions. She’s going to take us through why it is that so many women are actually missing out on the opportunity to be diagnosed with an autoimmune condition and what we should all be looking at not only to reverse them but to prevent them from emerging in the first place! Key Takeaways: [1:02] About today’s episode with Dr. Alison Danby! [1:57] Welcoming Dr. Alison Danby to the podcast! [2:27] Alison tells us about her background and why autoimmune conditions are an area of women’s health that she is so passionate about. [3:26] What exactly does it mean to have an autoimmune condition? [4:41] Are autoimmune conditions happening with an increased frequency or are we just becoming better at detecting them earlier on? [5:45] A third of the women we see in our practice have positive antibodies against the thyroid. Is this trend something Dr. Danby is also seeing in her own practice? [6:44] The importance of running antibody tests to check for autoimmune conditions. [8:33] Why are women more at risk for autoimmune conditions than men? [10:18] Dr. Danby shares some of the tools she uses in and out of her practice for measuring the effects of stress. [11:03] Why heart rate variability is so vitally important. [13:00] Dr. Danby explains the link between stress and the gut. [16:55] What can we do to treat autoimmune conditions? [20:09] How often does Dr. Danby find that they are able to successfully reverse an autoimmune condition at her practice? [24:14] Dr. Danby walks us through what the experience is like to work with a naturopathic doctor or a functional medicine practitioner in terms of attempting to resolve an autoimmune condition. [26:14] Dr. Danby shares more about her own personal journey with her autoimmune condition. [28:31] The importance of working with a practitioner. [31:30] Dr. Alison Danby’s key performance indicators! [35:12] Where to learn more about the work Dr. Alison Danby is doing! Mentioned in This Episode: Dr. Alison Danby Hashimoto’s Lupus Rheumatoid Arthritis Lief Therapeutics HeartMath Oura Ring The Entrepology Podcast Ep. 123: “Body: The Secret of Your Body and What It is Telling You About Stress and Longevity, with Rohan Dixit” Becoming, by Michelle Obama More About Dr. Alison Danby Dr. Alison Danby earned her Bachelor of Science, Honors, in Biological Science degree from the University of Guelph with a major in Human Kinetics and Sports Injury Management. Before her journey led her to naturopathic medicine, she received a Bachelor of Education in secondary school mathematics and health education at the University of Exeter, UK, teaching in England and Canada for two and a half years. Dr. Danby knew she wanted something different, though, and so she returned to Canada to attend medical school — but not your regular medical school. She wanted to learn proactive medicine so she completed a four-year program in Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario. Dr. Alison Danby always knew there was more to learn and more to offer her future patients, so to further her education and compliment her background in Naturopathic medicine, she delved into the world of integrative and evidence-based medicine. She completed Advanced Training in Applied Functional Medicine at the Institute of Functional Medicine. Dr. Danby believes in the life-changing effects of Naturopathic Medicine, and so for the last half-decade, she has also been a representative on the Provincial and National Associations of Naturopathic Doctors.

159: Badass: Why I Stepped Down from Practice

Last week on the podcast I had the privilege of bringing on one of my closest friends and colleagues, Dr. Erin Wiley. In that episode, we shared that I’m going to be making some really significant transitions in my career which involve me stepping down permanently from private practice and working one-on-one with patients. Throughout the last year, I’ve really taken the time to gain some perspective on how I want to spend my time and energy moving forward. And the one thing that I have always made a promise about is that no matter what I do with my career, I am more committed to the mission at hand than the model through which I serve that mission. With that being said, I’m excited to be bringing you a solo episode this week to share all that I’ve learned in this transition and what I will be doing with my time, going forward. And, if you’re an entrepreneur looking to make some significant shifts in your own business or life, I also recommend tuning in to learn more about the process itself and how to go about such a huge, life-changing transition. Key Takeaways: [:20] About today’s solo episode. [1:45] My ultimate mission with the work that I do. [4:18] What I’ve been struggling with regarding my practice. [6:09] My turning point for realizing that I needed to step down from my practice. [10:32] Why I waited until now to make this transition. [11:42] Why I am incredibly confident in Dr. Erin Wiley to take over my practice. [13:33] What I’m going to start to do with my time going forward. [15:15] Giving my thanks to all of you! [16:31] My limiting beliefs around stepping away from my practice and how I overcame them. [17:41] What these last five months have been like… and what I promise you moving forward. [18:01] What I wish for all of you listening. [18:19] Thanks for listening and I’ll see you next week!

In this episode, Corey and I went deep into the science — we seriously geeked out on some of the things that you should be looking at in your own lifestyle, how you can start to make shifts on a daily basis, and the top three things that we are both seeing affecting people in a chronic way — and they are definitely not what you’d expect!
