Ep. 49: Digestive and Hormonal Healing, the Impacts of Poor Health on Our Relationship with Food, Individuality in Medicine, the Power of Perspective, Stigma Around Anti-Anxiety Medication, and Other Real Talk with Kait Miller

This episode is INCREDIBLE- we covered a lot of topics as Kait walks us through her healing journey. She has recovered from digestive woes, hormonal dis-regulation and a disordered relationship with food. She discusses how she ended up with orthorexic tendencies and fear around food due to health issues but found that in order to fully heal, she had to re-evaluate her mentality around food. She is open and honest about the highs and lows of healing and how this hard time ultimately lead her to become re-align with her true calling. Kait emphasizes the importance of individuality in both western and eastern medicine and discusses the value of living in the grey area pertaining to both food and medicine. Kait discusses the stigma around certain medications (like SSRIs) and how this didn’t prevent her from making the best decision for herself. Kait describes her story to health as “a journey of perspective” and emphasizes the power of optimism and positive self talk during recovery and healing.

Ep. 86: Fertility Awareness Method, the Menstrual Cycle & Hormones with Lisa Hendrickson-Jack

About Lisa: Lisa Hendrickson-Jack talks about vaginas a lot! She’s a certified Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner who teaches women to chart their menstrual cycles for natural birth control, conception, and monitoring overall health. In her new book The Fifth Vital Sign, Lisa debunks the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children, by recognizing the menstrual cycle as a vital sign. Drawing heavily from the current scientific literature, Lisa presents an evidence-based approach to fertility awareness and menstrual cycle optimization. She hosts the Fertility Friday Podcast, a weekly radio show devoted to helping women connect to their fifth vital sign by uncovering the connection between menstrual cycle health, fertility, and overall health. With well over a million downloads, Fertility Friday is the #1 source for information about fertility awareness, and menstrual cycle health, connecting women around the world with their cycles and their fertility — something our education systems have consistently failed to do. When she’s not researching, writing, and interviewing health professionals, you’ll find her spending time with her husband and her two sons. To learn more, visit fertilityfriday.com. Topics include: Why learning about our menstrual cycle is important for all people, men and women Difference between rhythm method and FAM Why we should consider the menstrual cycle as a vital sign Why the menstrual cycle (with regular ovulation) is an important sign of health Why period pain, though common, is absolutely not normal, and steps to take to reduce pain without painkillers Why hormonal contraceptives don't "fix" or "cure" period problems The most common side effects associated with hormonal birth control The impact of hormonal contraceptives on fertility (and how this relates to planning ahead for pregnancy) Using fertility awareness for birth control — breaking down the 3 main fertile signs (cervical mucus, basal body temperature, and cervical positions Grab her book, The Fifth Vital Sign HERE!  Find Lisa at: Facebook: Facebook.com/FertilityFridays Instagram: @FertilityFriday Twitter: @FertileFriday Pinterest: FertilityFriday Skype: FertilityFriday Resources for you: Ready to learn more?

121: How to Make Peace with Weight Gain

The longer I do this work, the more I realize how much the fear of weight gain is one of the absolute, biggest predictors of why we fear intuitive eating. And I get it- I really do. I learned about intuitive eating way before I actually began my permission stage, meaning I rejected the belief that I needed to diet and gave myself unconditional permission to eat all foods, and truly listen to my body. If you are trying to start this journey, there are a few factors that you are going to need to work through first, or else you will always get stuck. With clients, we focus on mindset, values, working through barriers, facing fears...including the fear of weight gain...first before we start detailing through the intuitive eating principles. This allows for better SUCCESS because you’ve made peace and worked on what’s holding you back from, first and foremost. So this brings me to today’s conversation because its one of the biggest aspects that holds us back from intuitive eating...fear of weight gain. If you would have told me ten years ago that I would weigh what I do today and not only accept and tolerate it but NOT CARE and be happier, healthier and loving my life, myself and my body...I would have laughed at you. I had a core belief that being smaller was better and that weight gain would derail everything in my life. Are you ready to learn more? Today’s podcast episodes shares: Why we are having this conversation about weight gain Weight gain as a possibility in your intuitive eating journey Set point theory and how to discover your personal set point range How to make peace with weight gain through: Education as a tool for peace Letting go of desire to lose weight Body Respect practices Practicing trust and patience Investing in yourself Get Victoria’s FREE E-BOOK ON HOW TO EAT FOR HORMONES.

Connect with Victoria and the staff at NMN: Victoria’s Instagram Victoria’s Website Nourishing Minds Nutrition Instagram Nourishing Minds Nutrition website This episode is brought to you by New Chapter. As a women’s health dietitian and educator, I have been on the search for my official recommendation for a prenatal vitamin for quite some time, and I am thrilled to say I finally found the one, and actually a prenatal AND postnatal vitamin- that checks all my boxes. What’s so cool about New Chapter’s Perfect Prenatal Vitamin  is that it is fermented for better absorption with beneficial probiotics and whole foods, which also makes it easy to digest and gentle on the stomach- which if you’ve ever taken a prenatal vitamin you know that’s not always the case. Plus their new improved formula contains ginger to help combat morning sickness. It contains all the key nutrients your body needs for a growing baby, including methylfolate- which is the active form of folate I personally always recommend to my clients when they are looking for a prenatal*. And they also have a Perfect Postnatal Vitamin, which is what I am personally taking now. Its formulated specifically for new moms and our needs, to help us replenish nutrient stores from having a baby meaning its going to contain key nutrients like iodine, vitamin D, fermented iron as well as fermented B vitamins to support energy needs. What I think is so helpful is that it also contains herbs and plants that have been used traditionally for lactation like oats, kelp, chamomile and turmeric*. As with all New Chapter supplements and products, these prenatal and postnatal vitamins are nonGMO certified, made with organic whole foods and herbs and responsibly sourced. I mean I could it get any better, I don’t think so! You can purchase New Chapter prenatal and postnatal vitamins on New Chapter’s website, Whole Foods, CVS, Amazon and local health food stores.

115: The Pros and Cons of the Whole 30 Diet with Megan Perez RD/N

On the podcast today we have back on the show Megan Perez, one of the dietitians at Nourishing Minds Nutrition. In this episode, Megan shares her feedback and personal experience trying the whole 30 diet, and how this is not a non-diet approach. We review who the diet was created for, the pros, cons and major takeaways from her experience implementing it. Overall, our goal is to show you that no external sources that tell you what you can and cannot eat is true intuitive eating, and that placing food and good or bad categories creates an all or nothing approach to food. While the episode aims to be open-minded to why someone may implement this in their lives, we feel there is no way it could heal someone's relationship with food or could be sustainable for the long term.

Ep. 41- Eating Disorder Recovery, the Importance of Mental/Emotional Health, and Wellness without Obsession with Davida Kugelmass

So much goodness on today’s episode! We covered a lot of great topics and dove in deep with one of our favorite humans in the wellness space- Davida Kugelmass. Davida opened up to talk about her story and history of disordered eating, the journey through recovery, and ultimately how she got to where she is today as one of the most renowned names in wellness. We discussed how it can often be difficult to come to terms with having an eating disorder and how certain diagnostic criteria can be a barrier to help and treatment for many. We discussed how it can be easy to transfer obsessive and perfectionist tendencies- especially when things seem to be spinning out of control, but how ultimately letting go to the need to control and developing other coping mechanisms allowed true inner peace and healing. Davida discussed how she personally pursues wellness without obsession and how she truly lives in the grey area today. She discussed why she believes emotional/mental health is by far the most important aspect of health and how she cultivates her own inner wellness. Davida also gave insight and offered wisdom for those who are thinking about quitting their day job and pursing their dreams of entrepreneurship.

159: Q&A on Eating, Exercise and Anxiety During the COVID-19 Pandemic

I am pausing another week on the content I had planned out to more specifically address what is going on right now with the COVID-10 Pandemic. Many of you have told me that this quick change in routine, the lack of unknown, these out of control times are bringing on a lot of food, exercise and anxiety challenges. I am going to answer questions I received from Instagram to help you with this. These answers are catered towards the anxious mind and disordered patterns popping up as a way to cope. I do want to acknowledge some listening with actually be experiencing food insecurity because of loss of job, etc and that would of course add to the scarcity mindset around food. If you have been affected by a job loss and are food insecure, please let us know so we can spread the word to support our community. Questions answered in today’s podcast episode: Question: I am finding that i”m struggling with taking a “rest day” from working out and getting close to my normal amount of steps. I usually workout 5-6 days in the gym but am now doing at home live workouts and I just don’t want to take a “rest day”. I think partially because i like the group fitness online but also because i’m afraid of losing strength/gaining weight. Question: How do you deal with exercise addiction in a time like this? I was so active at school, and being more sedentary messes with my head and makes me anxious. It makes me want to restrict, but I’m continuing to eat enough because my body needs to eat! I wanted to ask this because I know I’m not the only one.  Question: I’d love if you could talk how to challenge the scarcity mindset when there is so much scarcity of food at the stores. Definitely triggering my ED thoughts! Question: Would love for you to explain on anxiety! Feels like my chest is clenched up so tight and I have trouble concentrating on anything even when watching TV, without feeling anxious. I also want to send a big thank you to our new Tuesday podcast sponsors, Better Help. Better Help is a professional counseling service platform done through a secure online platform. Better Help is affordable, available worldwide, and you can get started within 24 hours.  Better Help wants you to start living a better, happier life starting today.

In this episode we discuss: Dana’s current work as a non-diet nutritionist and her speciality in the middle ground approach, making nutrition easy to understand and intuitive eating aligned. Dana’s journey from being a Whole 30 coach to practicing instead from an intuitive eating philosophy. Dana shares what caused this shift, why it was no longer ethical for her to recommend the Whole 30 and why she could no longer recommend it to her clients and audience. Why the Whole 30 cannot be used to fix your relationship with food. How Dana practices intuitive eating as someone who personally has Celiac disease.  How Dana practices wellness without obsession. Stay tuned to the end of today’s episode to learn about my 3 identifiers of diet culture, which you can also learn more about in this episode, all about what exactly is diet culture.

This episode is brought to you by New Chapter. As a women’s health dietitian and educator, I have been on the search for my official recommendation for a prenatal vitamin for quite some time, and I am thrilled to say I finally found the one, and actually a prenatal AND postnatal vitamin- that checks all my boxes. What’s so cool about New Chapter’s perfect prenatal vitamin is that it is fermented for better absorption with beneficial probiotics and whole foods, which also makes it easy to digest and gentle on the stomach- which if you’ve ever taken a prenatal vitamin you know that’s not always the case. Plus their new improved formula contains ginger to help combat morning sickness. It contains all the key nutrients your body needs for a growing baby, including methylfolate- which is the active form of folate I personally always recommend to my clients when they are looking for a prenatal. And they also have a Perfect postnatal vitamin, which is what I am personally taking now. Its formulated specifically for new moms and our needs, to help us replenish nutrient stores from having a baby meaning its going to contain key nutrients like iodine, vitamin D, fermented iron as well as fermented B vitamins to support energy needs. What I think is so helpful is that it also contains herbs and plants that have been used traditionally for lactation like oats, kelp, chamomile and turmeric. As with all New Chapter supplements and products, these prenatal and postnatal vitamins are nonGMO certified, made with organic whole foods and herbs and responsibly sourced. I mean I could it get any better, I don’t think so! You can purchase New Chapter prenatal and postnatal vitamins on New Chapter’s website, Whole Foods, CVS, Amazon and local health food stores.

Collagen is the main structural protein in skin, bone and connective tissue and using collagen powders is a great way to include this traditional food in your diet and something I like to use Instead of protein powder. I love that New Chapter offers three different kinds of collagen powders, collagen glow that is mixed with sea buckthorn for hair and skin support, collagen move with calcium added for joint support and collagen elevate with matcha added for mental energy and clarity. All collagen powders are Non-GMO, gluten free and multi sourced from grass fed, pasture raised beef and cage free chicken.  You can purchase New Chapter’s Collagen powders on New Chapter’s website, Whole Foods, CVS, Amazon and local health food stores.
