I love that Alexa practices what she preaches and tells it like it is. I agree with her 100 percent about health in episode #168, “Are We Doing Health All Wrong.” We need to get back to the basics. We have it backwards. We need to heal from the inside out and quit focusing on the outside. ❤️❤️❤️ this podcast!

Rank #4: #116: What Your Body Type Tells You About What To Eat

Podcast cover
Read more

Does our physical appearance tell us anything about what we should eat, how we should exercise and live? That's what we're uncovering today. Specifically what your body type tells you about what to eat and the concept of individual design. 

Each body is different, we know that, and we can see that yet we still like to slap the same standards on a billion different bodies. The real truth is, one system will never work for everyone.

So what does work and how do you lose weight?

That's the question we dive into today on the podcast as I interview Megan Dalhman who will answer questions on individual design, somatotypes {or what your physical appearance could mean biologically} and the hierarchy of fat loss.

Rank #6: #054: Daily Habits for Increased Happiness

Podcast cover
Read more

Unhappiness. Some say it's our greatest epidemic of our day. In fact, statistics show that nearly 50% of Americans are unhappy at work and less than one-third of people describe themselves as "very happy."

That means that nearly 70% of the American population are considered unhappy.

To me, this is one of the most startling statistics we are faced with. Not just because the majority of the population is walking around in a less than exciting trance, but that this is a direct relationship to our overall health. Yes, stress {happiness} is one of the biggest factors underlying health and one that is hard to measure and impossible to fight against.

The bottom line, happiness is a make it or break it factor in our health. Not to mention what fun is living without happiness?

Today on the podcast I am beyond excited to have a very special guest who has lived to make her life happier with simple and easy steps, Sarah Von Bargen. Sarah is the founder of the site Yes and Yes helping people all over the globe have more fun. Her slogan states, "Because yes is more fun than no," and she shows us exactly how to do this in a chaotic and busy world.

Our entire metabolic and biological make-up is changing with the changing of weather patterns. Do you know that using these changes is one of the best ways to make lasting health changes? Find out why you need a seasonal routine inside. 

With the changing of weather comes the change of clothes, whether it's from cold to warm to hot or the exact opposite. We tend to adjust what we wear with the changing of seasons. Not to mention our entire environment can flip-flop with the changing of weather patterns.

Rank #8: #117: How To Stop Sugar Cravings Without Giving Up Sugar

Podcast cover
Read more

If you've never had a craving then I question if you're even human? Because as biology states, cravings are necessary and normal. So the question is less about how you stop them and instead how you manage them for success.

Because if you're human, you're going to crave things.

Now I know that can be frustrating, but I promise you, learning to free yourself from the power of the craving and learning to channel that into health can make all of the difference.

Inside the podcast, I share the anatomy of a craving. Everything including the purpose, where cravings come from and how you can manage them. As you will learn, it's not just a matter of willpower, and you aren't weak if you can't overcome them. They are true biological and physiological process happening inside your body through many different enzymes, neurotransmitters, and hormones.

Complicated, sure?

But the truth, the answer to overcoming hormones is the answer I give for everything else. Find out the five ways to overcome your cravings inside. And keep reading to uncover the best kinds of sugar and chocolate you should be consuming.

Rank #10: #156: Why Food Affects Your Mood

Podcast cover
Read more

I'm no stranger to the effects food had on my mood. I realized this nearly two years ago when I eliminated the top allergens like gluten and dairy from my diet. Of course, when it's not in your diet, you don't always recognize how well you feel. But when you put it back in man do you notice. 

Or at least I did.

I've narrowed down my specific mood culprit to gluten. It hits me like a freight train roughly 24 hours after exposure and takes a solid 24 hours for me to become rational again. It's not like I feel bad, I just can't seem to shake the mood. The constant annoyance and anger that lurks under my skin, waiting for the moment to erupt. 

It's not pretty and something I consciously work to avoid for the sake of my health and my family. 

While I know it's not readily understood - that food can impact your mood - there is actual science to why this happens and what you should know about eating for your mood. Inside this podcast, I break it all down and share my healing strategies for health.

Podcast cover

The question heard around the world, how do we balance hormones?

Hormones have been the villain for years. Now more than ever, we have a hormonal epidemic on our hands. From irregular periods, PMS, early menopause, hot-flashes, low-libido, erectile dysfunction, depression, anxiety, PCOS, endometriosis, joint issues, and countless others, we have a real issue going on.

While traditional medicine takes you on a very narrow journey of trying to mask all of these things with a simple daily pill or cream there are other ways that actually work to fix the root. In the end to create an even harmony of your body doing the job it was designed.

Now I'm not saying that modern medicine isn't working, for some, it is working quite well. In other situations we need it. But outside of that, the solution has been only one your doctors can prescribe. But today we're going to learn about the treatment you don't have to sit around and wait for but things you can do today to find relief.

On this podcast, we go in-depth to five natural ways to balance hormones starting today.
