What's The Juice

Olivia Amitrano — founder and creator of Organic Olivia — is leveling up in 2020 with What’s The Juice: a podcast as multifaceted as its listeners. What’s The Juice is an extension of Organic Olivia, which started as a blog but quickly morphed into a fierce community of like minds on a divine path of learning, growing, and healing. Our greatest tools are traditional wisdom, herbal medicine and a brave willingness to explore our own behavior and psychology. Olivia is an herbalist, an entrepreneur, a blogger, and most notably an educator. Each episode is an opportunity to synthesize her education in herbalism, psychology, and a lifetime of health issues into valuable, tangible tips on how to heal and thrive. Interviews with specialists, doctors, therapists, practitioners, astrologers, estheticians, artists, and storytellers are oozing with raw, human moments and empowering information. Candid, honest, curious, engaged (and in case it isn’t obvious, a Leo), this young woman is on a mission to understand the human condition while sharing both the present chapter of her life as well as the lessons she’s learned getting here. Peeling back the layers isn’t always pretty, but life is juicy and we’re in this together.

EP. #16 HOW TO SYNC YOUR LIFE WITH YOUR PERIOD — The "infradian rhythm" that no one's talking about

Here’s the juice on this week’s pod guest: Alisa Vitti. Alisa is a wellness queen, researcher, and author, and in this episode of What’s The Juice, we talk all about biological cycles and something super eye opening: The Infradian Rhythm. Here’s what’s up with the infradian rhythm... Unlike the 24-hour circadian rhythm (which is the single natural rhythm for men), the infradian rhythm is a secondary 28-day cycle that affects six key systems in the reproductive-aged female body. The infradian rhythm impacts our: Brain Metabolism Immune system Microbiome Stress response system Reproductive system So yeah… It affects preeetty much everything. And because of this second natural rhythm, we are literally not the same person week after week. In any given month, we will experience four different biological phases that can be embraced and optimized, making us the most creative, productive, badass versions of ourselves!

EP. #17 A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO LYME DISEASE — Richard Mandelbaum’s powerful philosophy on treating chronic illness

THIS WEEK ON WHAT’S THE JUICE PODCAST Unless you’re new here, you’ve most likely heard me gush about my experience at ArborVitae School of Traditional Herbalism. Now, I haven’t always been a total herb nerd. This interest of mine was first ignited when I started buying supplements on Amazon and it quickly spiraled into a full-blown passion that just won’t quit! A few years ago I followed my gut to ArborVitae and I can say with 100% certainty that it was the right choice for me. I’ve learned SO much since I first started my program and it’s all thanks to my incredible, inspiring, brilliant teachers. This episode of What’s The Juice is a super special one for me because I get to introduce you to someone I’ve mentioned many times before: Richard Mandelbaum. Richard and Claudia Keel founded ArborVitae, and they’re the quintessential yin and yang team. In herbalism speak, where Claudia is the flower essence, Richard is the spleen qi... and they are both major herbalist GOALS.  Richard’s classes are full of Chinese Medicine (be still my heart), and he’s always encouraging his students to look at human health in a balanced way. He’s a Leo — so it’s no wonder that I resonate with him — but it’s his Aquarius moon AND Aquarius rising that make him such an innovator. Not only did he co-found an herbalism school in New York City, he’s also playing a vital role in shifting the way modern medicine approaches Lyme disease. Ready to get schooled by Richard Mandelbaum?

Ep. #07 - STRESS PART 2 - how to get out of fight or flight mode and improve sleep, digestion & libido

Get ready for part two of our debut episode, The Stress Bible. This week we’re diving even deeper into “sympathetic dominance” (chronic fight or flight mode) and what impact this has on the body physiologically. When you can’t calm down, you can’t “secrete” properly (both hormones and fluids) meaning you may have issues sleeping, digesting, eliminating, or getting horny. Olivia and Nick get personal and candid about what puts them in fight or flight mode and how they cope — especially when they feel guilty for resting. We discuss our generation’s obsession with productivity plus the oh so nuanced PERCEIVED stress (and how to flip the script mentally). Stress can be a huge catalyst for change, so using it wisely and seeing it differently is key to overcoming it. Throughout the episode, we’re constantly talking about hacks and tools you can use to spend more time in PARAsympathetic mode (rest and digest – which is the opposite of sympathetic dominance). These range from CBD and herbs all the way to simply using your own breath. This episode is for those of you who simply can’t relax and feel like you’re always “on.” As a society, we’re forgetting how to slow down and sit with ourselves, so give yourself an intentional break and listen to this episode while taking some deeeeeep belly breaths. You deserve it. Connect with Olivia HERE Shop Organic Olivia formulas HERE Read full length show notes HERE

Ep. #03 - HEALING GENERATIONAL TRAUMA w/ DR. ZELINA - how she recovered from lupus and why healing is more than just physical

What role does spiritual wellness play in the healing of the physical? In this week's episode Olivia sits down with Dr. Zelina Medina, who became a doctor of acupuncture after being diagnosed with the autoimmune disease lupus. Together we explore the steps she took to heal, and chat about the root cause of autoimmunity through the lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine. While changing her diet made a huge difference, she credits her progress even more so to shamanic medicine ceremonies such as soul retrieval in order to tackle the many layers of disease. Dr. Z explains that a part of the soul gets lost, or detached from the self, when we experience childhood trauma — this affects us physically, and even gets passed on generationally. Luckily the science is catching up, and thanks to tools like the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) questionnaire, we now have concrete evidence that early emotional trauma can increase your risk for chronic illness later in life. If you’re someone who likes to connect the dots, this episode will validate and hopefully inspire you.

EP. #14 - WHO IS SHE? MEET THE HERB - Agrimony: for liver health, gut dysbiosis, and jaw tension

Well, the time has come and this episode is just me, my microphone, and my herbalism school notes.... And I gotta admit, I freaking loved recording this episode because it gave me the opportunity to spill the juice on something I’m so so SO passionate about. As if it wasn’t already clear that talking about herbs turns me into a serious Nerd with a capital N, this episode totally gives me away.  Okay, so here are some fast facts about agrimony… Agrimony’s general profile: It’s a part of the rose family It’s a liver support herb (In fact, its common name is ‘liverwort’. Cute, right?) It’s an astringent, so it’s cooling and drying Its flavor is bitter, pungent, with a mild sweet and sour Are you ready?
