Description

If you are a woman in leadership and/or aspiring for greater leadership and you are looking to have it all; success in your career, personal life, and health, you're going to love this podcast season. I am incredibly passionate about this topic because I believe that as women leaders we can have it all! We don't have to settle for being successful in just one area of life such as our careers. We can orchestrate a life that is fulfilling, pleasurable, and healthy in all areas. We are all a "work-in-progress" but it's important to BELIEVE we can have it all or we surely won't get that. We will be speaking about what it takes to be a successful leader AND have a thriving personal life. Topics include passion, purpose, grit, compassion, self-awareness, thought leadership, self-care, wellness, visionary thinking, and strategic leadership. --- *Health Is Freedom, LLC is providing this podcast as a public service.

98. Mindie Barnett - Balancing Burnout And Teamwork
2031

๐Ÿ‘ฉ Mindie is getting her master's in marriage & family counseling and is doing research on burnout syndrome: everybody needs recovery time so we don't become a depleted nation. 02:25
๐Ÿคณ Make your body a leaner, meaner machine by taking time to unwind: the phone is often the main work-home interference. 10:24
๐Ÿฅฑ Sleep compromises are not good, but we all have them sometimes. 13:52
๐ŸŒธ Lead with empathy but know the difference between a mistake and a misstep: don't hover over your employees but have a check-in. 15:58
๐Ÿ‡ If you're pulling the reins too hard you're going to cause damage - be gentle with your employees. 19:03
๐Ÿค Mindie shares an incident from her company and how it was resolved: we have to align with our team because our team is really us. 21:05
โœ”๏ธ Poor behavior is almost always a result of being hurt or fearful: clients have to also do their part. 25:37
๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผ Stand by your team: let your employees know when you make a mistake and don't try to cover it up. 26:34
๐Ÿ“ข Get your name out there in the media. 28:39
โœ… You can be successful in your career and not compromise your health. 32:03

97. Shannon Black: Trauma Lives In The Body. Luckily, We Can Change The Template
2730

๐Ÿง  Trauma is stored in the body: our brain is built on our experiences and relationships. 03:23
โœ… When the vagus nerve is toned, we are in a safe and connected physiological state. 06:50
๐Ÿ‘ช Why creating a strong vagal tone is important: how trauma gets stored in us. 09:58
๐Ÿค— It takes a lot of energy to self-regulate but zero energy to be naturally regulated with a trusted loved one. 15:02
๐Ÿ’ž Our nervous system is attenuated when we are playful with people we trust: all people are trying to move towards safety or connection. 19:15
๐Ÿ” Being in a state of fight or flight causes us to seek reward unconsciously - the movement toward the fridge happens below our level of thinking. 23:04
3๏ธโƒฃ Three pillars of how our memory gets created: our memories are changeable - we always download the latest version. 32:15
๐Ÿ“ฟ If you have a spiritual practice, there's no reason that shouldn't be part of your therapy. 37:05
๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ A quick way to engage the vagal brake is to exhale longer than inhale. 38:54
๐Ÿ‘‰ Trauma can be anything that happens that's too much too soon, too much for too long, or too little for too long, without a safe and secure attachment. 41:12

96. Yvette Sims - Women's Health, Stress, & Hormones
2065

Women need to have their voices heard in the medical care system. Yvette Sims is a nurse practitioner who specializes in womenโ€™s health and talks about the decline of femininity in the healthcare system.ย 

One of the biggest problems of the modern healthcare system is the shift towards prioritizing the business model of making money over focusing on patientsโ€™ needs. This change incentivizes doctors to see the maximum number of patients and offers extremely limited time for the individual, which results in women not feeling heard during their visits.ย 

There are so many complex hormonal systems and balances in a womanโ€™s body, it is crucial for womenโ€™s health that we provide enough time to properly listen to their concerns in order to understand and diagnose their needs.ย 

Help advocate for change and bring care and femininity back to the medical care system!

Show Notes:
๐Ÿ‘‰ The allopathic health care model is focused on quantity, not quality, and women feel like: "You did not hear a word I just said." 02:45
๐ŸŒธ Yvette's vision is to get this science of caring back into medical education. 05:48
โœ”๏ธ Yvette can't work full-time and be present at every moment, so she chooses to work less. 07:54
๐Ÿ’ž A capitalistic society, when it comes to giving and humanity, cannot be based on productivity: it's necessary to bring more femininity into the system. 09:52
โœ… Doctors don't heal anybody - people heal themselves. 13:04
๐Ÿง  When the hypothalamicโ€“pituitaryโ€“adrenal axis (HPA) is off, our system can get very taxed: teaching the body to respond differently to stress. 16:30
๐Ÿ‘๏ธ Four pillars of stress are glucose, external factors, sleep disturbances, and inflammation. 22:52
๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ The only way the change can happen is if you have actionable things to do: Jill added the fifth pillar - thoughts - treat them with meditation, not Prozac. 25:45
โค๏ธ The system is really good right now on sick care, but not well-care: you can go through menopause and peri-menopause smoothly - women heal together. 28:03
๐ŸŒŽ You move through the world with confidence and ease by taking care of yourself and prioritizing your self-care and needs. 33:01

95. Time To Start Telling A Story That Serves You
1150

โœ… We have inner dialogues around our goals all the time: you can be in the exact same situation as someone else but feel completely different. 00:22
๐Ÿ‘‰ The only person who can make a change is you - not medication, diet change, or exercise, but being proactive: it's all about perspective, and you have control to change it - get to the root story first and build up on that. 02:40
๐Ÿ’™ One of the most pervasive and damaging stories we tell ourselves is that we are not enough: change internal dialog and tell yourself what's believable. 05:55
๐Ÿค— You are worthy of it and don't have to prove anything to anybody: appreciation should always be part of your feel-good story. 10:07
๐Ÿ’Ÿ You can forgive yourself and learn big beautiful lessons along the way. 12:05
๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Mantras are the opposite of your negative stories, whatever feels good to you, and it's not too long: practice helps you create a new identity. 14:15
๐Ÿฅฐ Don't let those thoughts slip in, and when they do, forgive yourself, allow it to happen, and move on. 16:47

94. How To Be Fabulously Successful - And Itโ€™s Not What You Think!
532

โœ… You want to be fabulously successful and have great relationships and you can have it!: our worth is not tied to how we look. 00:26
๐Ÿ’ฏ Establish what's important to you so you can have it all: don't listen to people who didn't do it themselves - success is an internal job. 02:32
๐Ÿ’› Relax to tune yourself like a beautiful Orchestra: you don't need to be perfect, it is all within your reach. 04:24
๐ŸŽฏ Your creative genius is within you: when your nervous system is calm, everything works better. 07:09

93. Dr. Bonnie Gasquet - Overly stressed? Mood unbalanced!? - Get your hormones checked!
2405

๐Ÿงฌ Bioidentical hormones exactly match human DNA hormones: synthetic estrogen can be harmful, but that's not the whole story. 02:44
๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Some women get a hysterectomy and nobody tells them anything about their hormones. 05:59
โ— When some hormones start to dip: lower progesterone causes your body to want to hold on to fat like a survival mechanism. 07:45
โœ… If your mom is getting forgetful, check her estrogen-circulating estrogen that keeps the amygdala active. 10:21
๐Ÿ“‹ Reasons to go to an anti-aging doctor: the tests that Dr. G does. 13:07
๐ŸŽฏ There's no age limit for receiving bioidentical hormones: women need adequate hormonal therapy after a hysterectomy. 16:54
๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ‘จ A story of when progesterone saved a marriage. 19:26
๐Ÿ“Š You can get your life back: cortisol is a stress hormone that we shouldnโ€™t forget about. 21:31
๐Ÿ’Š Semaglutide helps you lose weight that wonโ€™t come back: the misuse and overuse of Semaglutide.ย  23:33
๐Ÿง‘โ€โš•๏ธ Doctors have to play friendly, get their egos down, and accept that we all need to do this together. 28:42
โœ… I don't have to settle because I'm 45 and post-hysterectomy: give yourself permission to feel human again. 31:20
๐Ÿ‘‰ We can expand our potential: seek out the care you deserve. 34:04
โค๏ธ Do it from a place of love. 38:53

92. Linda Clarkson, MS LPC - Help Your Brain Create Healthy Neural Pathways
2353

๐Ÿ’ก Linda used her weight loss issue as an excuse not to love herself: discovering a connection with inner narratives/self-talk. 02:57
๐Ÿง’ It's a fool's errand to be searching for worthiness externally or in your physical appearance: it all goes back to our childhood history. 09:20
๐ŸŽ“ Linda explored her inner child over several years of cognitive work and reiki: becoming a master of mental health counseling in her 60s. 10:22
๐Ÿง  From a young age, our brain is recording everything and creates neural pathways that become patterned and automatic: that's why we bring our childhood history into our adult lives. 13:15
๐Ÿฅณ Neuroplasticity allows us to change negative self-talk to healthy, positive ones: we can't make new pathways in a week, but fear and guilt shouldn't stop us. 17:55
โณ Procrastination is a way of sidetracking us from what is significant and timely to do. 22:12
๐Ÿ•ฐ๏ธ We need radical acceptance to be able to change: you can develop new neural pathways through a structured process. 23:59
โœ… Process realizing that you are worthy of it: the 2 approaches you can try on this path. 27:37
โค๏ธ Practice gratitude, at least toward nature and stuff you like. 31:04
๐Ÿฅฐ We're all worthy of living a happy, healthy life: take any small step. 35:06

91. How and Why To Befriend Your Body
1398

๐Ÿคฑ It's easier to connect with nature than with our own body: observe how we're taught unconsciously to disconnect, to look outward. 00:32
๐Ÿฅฐ To have a deep sustainable level of health, you need to befriend your body: our body is a source of everything we need. 03:58
โ›ช We source everything from within ourselves - we can read the Bible, but we connect with God inwardly, and creativity comes from within you: body, mind, and soul are all one - if you hurt your body, you hurt your whole self. 06:01
โœ… The only reason you wouldnโ€™t want to be your best is if you think you can't, and that is the lie: if you don't befriend your body, that hurts you and slows you down. 09:41
โค๏ธ Spend time with yourself every day: your mind has an infinite capacity to love your body. 11:17
๐Ÿ† Pull in a mantra and use the words that feel good to you: loving and nurturing yourself is a path to achievement. 13:40
๐Ÿ’œ Nobody has to give me validation - it's coming from me. 15:49
๐Ÿฅณ It's not hard to do this - you can join our community, interact with other women and develop your skills for free. 17:48
๐Ÿ‘ญ It's all you-based, and we're here to hold hands and give inspiration and empowerment: food needs to be simple and whole. 19:17
๐Ÿค— You can do it on your own with all the free stuff or take things to another, more intimate level. 21:22

90. Dr. Renu Mansukhani - Obesity as a Medical Condition
2725

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ Why Dr. Renu, an endocrinologist, chose to be an obesity medicine physician. 03:25
โ— Obesity is not an intrinsic characteristic: we don't say somebody is cancer, yet, we say somebody is obese - it's not a personality flaw! 10:51
โœ… The weight problem is multifactorial - it has genetic, biological, psychological, lifestyle, and environmental components. 14:07
๐Ÿ‘‰ "If I had $1 for every time someone told me to eat less and move more..." - it's not people's fault that theyโ€™re dealing with obesity. 19:57
๐ŸŽฏ Dr. Renu's medical history form is 15 pages long - it's essential to listen and know what to focus on. 23:16
โœ”๏ธ Sometimes it's more about improving health and feeling better than losing weight. 27:47
๐Ÿ’Š A little bit about drugs - there are many meds people can use to lose weight if they qualify. 31:37
๐Ÿ’ธ It's ideal to go to a physician who specializes in your illness, or a primary care physician that you trust: the Hollywood approach is the scariest part. 35:09
๐Ÿค‘ A greedy industry victimizes people: for some people using meds can make lifestyle changes easier. 40:45
โค๏ธ Dealing with obesity and being overweight is a holistic process that can be a source of growth. 43:35

89. The Mental & Emotional Journey of Fertility Issues
2079

๐Ÿค— It's important how we approach infertility mentally and physically: this shouldn't be an isolating journey - the more you talk, the less isolated you feel. 03:19
๐ŸŽฏ Challenge your core beliefs that there's something wrong with you or you're not enough. 09:05
๐Ÿ’ญ Helpful and nonhelpful core beliefs come from a compilation of everything in our lives, and we're usually unaware of them: it takes a lot of work to be aware and pick them apart. 11:17
โค๏ธ Mantras help manage uncertainties and discomfort: everything is an opportunity - shift towards learning and gratitude. 16:32
โœ… Find mantras that resonate with you: itโ€™s hard for the mind and body to accept false positivity - build a relationship with it. 23:05
๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Meditation is a key practice that gives you some distance from your thoughts and feelings and helps us stop feeling trapped: it helps in our relationships with other people as well. 26:41

88. Robin Wilson - All You Have Is Now, Use It Wisely!
2666

๐Ÿ˜ฎ Robin had a stroke even though she led a healthy life. 02:03
๐Ÿ’ค Sleep is a time of healing. 06:28
๐Ÿ’” Living with a stroke and all risks: it's hard having speech problems and emotionally overwhelming moments. 08:15
๐Ÿ’™ Robin couldn't teach in a physical classroom anymore: adopt a positive view and don't forget to recover emotionally, not just physically. 16:21
โœ… Be kind because you don't know what someone else is going through. 19:52
โณ Go for the experience, not the fear: we don't know how much time we have. 21:40
โฑ๏ธ The ongoing discovery of an entrepreneur is how to be more efficient and effective with time. 24:43
โฐ We just have the moment we are in, and we should use it in the best way possible: prioritize what truly matters at the end of the day. 27:29
โ˜‘๏ธ Your health is your responsibility: slow down and take care of yourself. 32:37
๐Ÿคนโ€โ™€๏ธ All the hats of entrepreneurship: networking, making breaks, and delegating. 37:29

87. Are You Humming in All Areas of Your Life?
1429

โœ… We can have it all. 00:29
๐Ÿ‘‰ The upper limit problem explains how we sabotage ourselves: it's not about perfection, itโ€™s about things going well and doing better. 02:38
โ— When something is recurring in your life, there's a reason - a beautiful lesson. 04:53
โœŒ๏ธ Flip the script, and ask yourself the right questions: two questions to focus on. 06:51
โ˜‘๏ธ We move everything for our priorities. 08:53
๐Ÿ’ช Make it happen with a very strong WHY: know you deserve this. 10:20
๐ŸŽฏ You can have it all: but you set the bar for yourself. 12:25
๐Ÿชž Am I improving?: be realistic, so when you get that evidence, you get confidence. 14:54
๐Ÿฅณ Success is an internal job - what am I thinking all day?: meditate and have fun with the lessons. 17:00
๐Ÿง—โ€โ™€๏ธYou define what you want to have: a little self-sabotage is a part of climbing that mountain. 19:00

2410

โค๏ธ Allowing yourself to feel seen - you have permission to just be: Karen's three words for living authentically in 2023. 02:39
๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ Allow yourself to not feel good: we can breathe our way into shit! 05:19
๐Ÿ’ช Freedom is rewriting the information we put in our brains - we have a choice. 10:32
๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Life is stressful, but you have to choose yourself first: disappointments can be yummy & meditation starts with me. 15:46
๐Ÿฅฐ The way you treat yourself is the way other people will treat you - love the skin that you're in: take the time to work through your stuff. 19:01
๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽค We deserve to be healthy and have it all: we should talk to ourselves with colorful words - some days we're rockstars & some days we're an extra. 23:38
โœ… It's all about perspective and choosing a growth mindset: healing is sharing and movement. 28:16
๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ Our mental health is under attack - take the time to be still: what separates us from the nonliving is breath. 31:42

85. Madeline Schwarz - Communication Builds Confidence
2030

๐Ÿ“ข Getting more comfortable communicating: Madeline was terrified of public speaking, which negatively affected her well-being.ย  02:02
๐Ÿ’ช Overworking is not a way to prove yourself: "I'm going to speak up, even if it makes other people uncomfortable" = revealing rather than concealing. 05:11
๐Ÿซฆ Anticipation is worse than doing the work: communication is just a series of experiments. 08:24
โœ… The three big things to focus on in communication: communication is not a series of skills, itโ€™s a mindset - change how you think about yourself. 10:20
๐Ÿ›‹๏ธ Shame, guilt, and regret hold people back in communication: mindset is like rearranging your furniture. 14:03
๐Ÿ’ฏ Being nervous isn't a problem. 18:00
๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ Breathwork practice helps, but everybody needs different tools. 20:27
๐ŸŽญ Roleplay is a great practice: improving communication improves creativity in all areas of life. 24:04
๐Ÿ’ƒ Do the mindset work and feel like you belong on the stage! 27:05
๐ŸŽค Making small changes can have a huge ripple effect - experiment and don't give up. 29:09

84. Source Your Own Love, You Are Worth It!
1428

โ— You are worthy of everything you desire: let's not confuse deserving love and taking from others. 00:20
๐Ÿฅฐ Endogenously love yourself - value yourself, don't just go to the spa: we are looking for exogenous support because of guilt and shame.ย  02:57
๐Ÿ’™ Source your love & safety from yourself: you can't source somebody else's love, but you can relax into appreciating yourself. 05:43
๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ Will power is a limited resource: when you source your own needs, you take some downtime and you move and eat better. 08:30
๐Ÿ’ญ You are at peace if you appreciate yourself - you need this to be able to commit: create energy within yourself to fuel an inner world of calm and acceptance. 10:09
๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Exercise is a stress, not a source of peace. 12:52
๐Ÿ’ก To consistently have a desire for self-care, there has to be peacefulness: a calm state needs commitment - that's when you get great ideas. 14:31
๐ŸฅŠ Fighting is often a downfall - it's about deep underlying beliefs combined with the nervous system. 16:43
โœ… You can have it all - lean into it & feel curious: rewire the nervous system. 19:03
โค๏ธ We all have a birthright to be happy, healthy & wealthy: stop comparing yourself with others. 21:30

83. Andi Locke Mears - Germanic Healing Knowledge
2279

๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช German New Medicine is a native cultural tradition: people with the same traumas have the same diseases. 02:23
๐Ÿคง All living beings have this circadian rhythm: we have the sick phase that comes after the conflict-active phase and then we have a scaring phase. 09:52
๐Ÿฅ We have an entire system of medicine based on fear: use the aliphatic system smartly. 13:15
๐Ÿฆ  Few biological laws - all diseases begin with a conflict shock; there are 2 phases of every disease. 15:07
โ“ Are emotions a part of healing or a track? 18:50
๐Ÿ’ก Practice fear management instead of pain management: downgrading fear & making a connection to the cause:20:16

๐Ÿคฐ Jill's mom lead a birth education class - question the status quo. 25:57

82. Svetlana Chamoun - Tackling The Business Of Burnout
2751

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ From cardiology to lifestyle medicine: healthy lifestyle changes can prevent 85% of chronic diseases. 02:50
๐Ÿ”ฅ Before covid, 50% of healthcare workers had burnout: the upcoming potential shortage of physicians is in the hundreds of 1000s. 08:37
๐Ÿ’€ Beware Karoshi syndrome - death by overworking and the societal effects of burnout. 13:14
๐Ÿ’ฒ Physicians are employees of the for-profit system. 17:15
๐Ÿคน Physicians are stuck between healing models & business models. 21:30
โค๏ธ About Svetlana's work: be empathetic to your physician, and tell them about this! 24:24
๐Ÿฅผ Mental health is stigmatized in the medical profession - they are trained to neglect their needs, and resilience doesn't help, but empathy can. 27:23
โœ… Svetlana educates medical workers and healthcare administrators about burnout, practical solutions, and monitoring & reducing burnout in real time. 30:38
โ— You can test for burnout with questionnaires: it's important to recognize the type of burnout, react in time, and restructure a person's immediate surroundings. 32:52
๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ Unload yourself with mindfulness & meditation in complete isolation: live your life according to your values. 36:22
๐Ÿค” It's tough to change your thinking in a stressful state. 38:21

81. Why Dieting Makes Us Miserable & What You Can Do Instead
1409

โŒ Dieting feels restrictive to us, it's against our nature. 00:36
๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ Negative judgment about bad food leads to a bad relationship with food - we start obsessing. 02:40
โœ… The drama around food often comes from our beliefs: it's not serving you if it's not making you happy. 06:30
๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Exercise, sleep & meditation help the relationship with food: it may take a year or two. 08:58
๐Ÿ”† Rather than feeling black & white about food, come at it with ease. 10:48
๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ Write down the first thought you have about diet & food: believing that it's hard doesn't serve you - be your own thought police. 13:30
๐Ÿฅฐ I can do this with ease, and nothing is stopping me. 15:39
๐Ÿ—ป We are killing ourselves to be happy one day, but it doesn't work: hike the mountain. 17:08
๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ There are strategies that focus on adding rather than taking away: enjoy the process. 19:48
๐Ÿ‘ You don't have to suffer to lose weight & you can make mistakes. 20:57

80. Robin Maynard Dobbs - A Feminine Approach To Weight Loss & Health
2700

๐Ÿ™ˆ Counting calories, carbs & fats is shame-based.. 02:49
โ— Secrecy + Hard on yourself + Analysis + Must be something wrong with me + Emergency = SHAME 04:58
๐Ÿ‘ฉ Women feel guilt 80% more than men: don't fight against the system, just step out! 06:39
3๏ธโƒฃ Shame, lack, and isolation are the 3 main barriers for women: diets are the antithesis of what works. 08:27
๐Ÿ‘ญ There are a vast variety of beautiful female body types. 11:29
๐Ÿฅฐ The transition from the masculine to the feminine: let's appreciate fertility. 13:11
๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ Your body is not the problem, itโ€™s your disconnection from the life force: Robin's paintings celebrate women. 20:19
๐Ÿฅฌ Plant food is a gift from the earth: listen to your body and go from restrictive to expansive. 24:46
๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๏ธ Looking for relief through weight loss: the system runs better when we eat the right food. 29:38
๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ Breathe a few deep, full breaths before you eat - the miracle of digestion. 33:28

2151

โณ The quality and quantity of eggs decline with the years. 02:22
๐Ÿคฐ In your early 30s, eggs are mature & best to freeze (20 eggs!). 07:13
๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ You can test your ovarian reserve: female doctors are particularly vulnerable to fertility issues. 12:13
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ In your 40s it's easier to get pregnant with frozen eggs from your 30s: don't make choices because circumstances force you, keep your options open & plan ahead: it's useful for professional athletes as well. 16:49
๐Ÿง  Healthy body = healthy eggs: healthy eggs & healthy brain require the same lifestyle. 20:29
๐Ÿฅ— Weight loss is very integral to success in fertility treatment: team effort & wholesome effort is important. 23:13
๐Ÿค• There will likely be complications after your 50s: cancer patients often freeze their eggs. 25:39
๐Ÿ‘ผ Tech is getting better every day - we have options & our kids will have even more: women shouldn't feel the need to get into a relationship worrying they won't be able to have kids later. 29:14

2188

๐ŸŸก Holistic means using alternative, natural methods that can be easily obtained to improve health. 02:22
๐Ÿ’Š Tami had severe digestive issues, and medications made it worse, but dietary change helped her. 07:09
๐ŸŸ Plant-based, vegetarianism, pesco-vegetarianism, or loose veganism: pay attention to what's on your plate. 08:45
๐Ÿฅ• Make food that's not just nutritious, but tastes great: eat your chocolate: try something different like a carrot hotdog. 13:31
๐Ÿฅ— Tami's salad: Jill's ingredients for the ultimate salad. 16:45
๐Ÿฒ Big โ€˜ol salad night: donโ€™t forget soups, especially in the winter. 19:34
๐Ÿฅฌ Mixed salad greens and juices are great: the meal planning & having cooked food in the fridge. 21:37
๐Ÿ•‘ Training without a focus on nutrition doesn't give the right results: holistic means it'll take some time. 24:35
๐Ÿฅฐ If you don't eat enough, you'll be angry: your scale number means nothing - give yourself grace. 27:27

1387

๐Ÿฅง Food makes us feel good. 00:18
โ” Is food your main indulgence, or do you provide yourself with satisfaction & pleasure from other sources? 01:43
๐Ÿ‘  It's not about what you eat but your relationship with food: how to feel indulgent & expansive in your life. 04:13
๐Ÿ— Go back to the basics - eat whole foods & protein: we go for food when we lack satiety in other areas. 06:00
๐Ÿ‘ Empowered health for women is about taking a holistic perspective in life & realizing you can choose something different. 08:25
โœŒ๏ธ There are 2 main things we can control - our thoughts & actions. 10:00
๐Ÿง  Your body doesn't like losing weight rapidly. 12:50
๐Ÿฅฐ It all starts with your thoughts - indulge in the idea that you are perfect: come over here with us to the easy world. 14:52
๐Ÿ‘ง Indulge in love & have fun like kids do: it's ok to indulge in food when there is no shame and guilt. 16:19

2223

โœ… Integrating mental health nutrition into psychotherapy can bring quicker recovery results. 02:46
๐Ÿ— When our blood sugar drops adrenaline kicks in: when did you last eat protein? 04:24
๐ŸŸ Protein helps people with chronic relapse: premenstrual women should eat 20g of protein every 3 hours. 06:07
๐Ÿฅจ People switch addictions in the early phases of recovery: Jill ate ice cream every night & later replaced it with pretzels. 09:29
๐Ÿง  When we canโ€™t seem to shift negative behavior or thinking patterns, we should look at the brain: give your brain nutrients, not drugs. 11:49
๐ŸŽ Animal proteins contain vitamin B12, biotin, zinc & amino acids: what are other sources of amino acids? 16:43
๐Ÿฅ˜ Eat your protein, fats & fiber: more protein means fewer cravings. 18:12
๐Ÿ’€ Eating protein saves life and improves overall health: people with poor eating habits can eat themselves to death. 20:26
๐Ÿจ Example of a recovering 64-year-old woman: hunger vs. craving. 23:07
๐Ÿ’ค Not having enough protein at lunch can cause cravings at night: anybody can do it! 25:57
๐Ÿ’Š Sometimes we need to go for โ€œpurified foodโ€: it can turn cravings and even suicidal impulses off in just 20min. 28:07
๐Ÿšซ Don't take supplements on your own, there can be side effects! 30:07

๐Ÿ˜ž Women between 40 & 60 often feel incapable of working out on their own. 09:41
โœจ It's FUN when it's playful, has some flow, and creates a connection. 11:07

67. Alex Van Tol - What's Love Got To Do With Health?
1872

โค๏ธ Self-love is at the root of all our healing: inner work is a bit of a faith game, invisible and mood dependent. 03:14
๐Ÿ’ Focusing context vs. content: even flowers grow more fully surrounded by the context of love. 07:11
๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๏ธ Acceptance is where change can happen: our bodies are a very underused source of wisdom and knowledge in our society. 10:39
๐Ÿฅฐ Speak words of love to yourself: draw the cosmic energy towards yourself 13:31
๐Ÿ‘ง A disordered eating pattern can be connected to having felt deprived of love as a little person. 16:17
๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ How to logically say you are enough and 100% worthy of unconditional self-love and acceptance?: it takes 100 reps to talk yourself into something but drops to 10 reps when you get your body involved. 19:41
๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ Bring the body and the breath in: breath is the excuse to bring attention somewhere. 22:26
๐ŸŽ‡ Would you be willing to do this imperfectly and still have fun? 26:19
๐Ÿ’ž Self-love may feel silly at the beginning, but the fruit from the love garden is so juicy. 28:05

1932

๐ŸŽ Can forgiveness help us have a better time during the holidays? 02:49
๐Ÿ’ญ Does reframing lead to forgiveness? 04:07
๐Ÿ— It takes a deep muscle for forgiveness: food is a way of โ€œstuffing feelingsโ€: we have to face temporary pain. 05:22
๐Ÿ’ธ Louisa had to forgive her mother for paying her to lose weight. 09:25
๐Ÿค— Forgiveness is a journey without a destination: allow yourself to falter, reframe and make mistakes. 11:48
โค๏ธ โ€œTo forgive is not just to be altruistic - it's the best form of self-interestโ€: acting out the emotion leads to an inability to relinquish a grievance. 15:17

1367

๐Ÿง  Belly fat is not what you eat, how you exercise, or your hormones, all of those things are downstream effects of your nervous system state. 01:00
๐Ÿ’ฏ Sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems affect adrenaline and creativity. 03:00
๐ŸŒท The more you can be in a state of ease and flow, the easier it's going to be to stay healthy. 05:00
๐Ÿƒ Our nervous system responds well to a burst of stress: chronic stress affects decision-making and health practices. 05:44
๐Ÿ’† Prolonged stress can cause adrenaline resistance and other health problems: a calm brain helps cultivate good decisions and creativity. 11:57
๐Ÿ‹ Habits and practice can ensure good results when stressed. 14:55
๐Ÿ’ก Awareness and acceptance are necessary for inspired action: "I have to lose weight" is adrenaline-inspired. 17:03

34. The Self-Love Context is the BEST
966

โœจ Jill is a Big Leap coach: Sheโ€™s been certified by the Hendricks Institute. 00:10
๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ Differentiating between content and context: The diet industry has created an entire context in which we have been trained to operate. 01:00
โค๏ธ Jill suggests an entirely different context we can operate: when content becomes looser and more flexible. 03:17
๐Ÿ˜ฐ I gotta get it right, what is proper: the fear about will my tribe accept me if I look like this? 04:12
๐Ÿฅฐ Let's all lift ourselves up and move over to a better context, a better paradigm, a better world: unconditional self-love. 08:28
โซ Intuitive Eating is this whole industry that has risen up as a reactionary measure against the diet culture: but go one step further. 11:23

2445

๐ŸŽ† Anyone can be an innovator: it means creating something new that creates value. 02:51
๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿผ Being an innovator as a housewife and a stay-home-mom. 06:19
๐Ÿค” We tend to overcomplicate things: innovation is coming from your emotions, from your guts, and itโ€™s serving the world. 06:55
๐Ÿง  Feminine and masculine energy in the innovation process: the secret is in the balance of two energies and intuition that comes from within. 08:35
โš–๏ธ We're all on the spectrum between masculine and feminine: why being centered is good. 14:17
๐Ÿค“ What are some traits that are more feminine or masculine? Our brains can rewire and change. 17:23
โœ… Importance of diversity and inclusivity in innovation and teams: gray and white matter in our brains. 19:43
โ— The movement of Conscious Capitalism: we are hurting the world and ourselves by not allowing more people to have access to innovation. 21:53
๐Ÿจ What is happening when you lose weight? Looking at food from a different perspective is innovation. 24:49
๐Ÿฅ– You have to love yourself and choose your mindset: eating habits in France. 29:53
๐Ÿ’ก Weight loss programs are written from a masculine perspective: where is self love? 31:20
๐Ÿ‘๏ธ Putting the focus on your own health and how you feel: getting away from stress. 34:35

32. Michela Parisi - Is Trauma Unconsciously Affecting Your Day-to-Day Life?
2421

๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ Michela is a therapist who is incorporating Neurofeedback into her counseling sessions: primarily helping women whoโ€™ve experienced trauma. 02:08
๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ What does it mean to โ€œexperience traumaโ€? Minimizing the way that we feel leads to all sorts of diagnoses. 04:14
๐Ÿ‘‰ Weight loss is a byproduct of improved health: trauma might affect human behavior without us knowing it.ย  06:35
๐Ÿ” When patterns of behavior are still recurring in the weight loss process: somewhere deep underneath, trauma might provoke this. 09:28
๐Ÿง We're not looking at external factors that probably impacted our inner dialogue: do we really hate our legs or did someone tell us to do that? 11:26
๐Ÿคฉ The cathartic process of sitting with your emotions: the cyclical pattern of chicken and egg is a lot less negative. 14:07
๐Ÿ˜ค Physical and mental health diseases are related to suppressed rage: you don't really know it's there until it bubbles over and comes out.16:47
๐Ÿง  Neurofeedback teaches the brain to re-regulate and let go of old patterns to be able actually to change the behavior. 21:47
๐Ÿ“Œ QEEG Brain Map measures the activity on the surface of the skull: forty sessions are needed to track changes in the brain. 23:11
๐Ÿคฏ Neurofeedback sessions: The brain naturally feels good and wants to stay in that mode but illnesses, events, and trauma change it. 25:09
๐Ÿ’Š The pill should not be the first solution: 80% of adults are on at least one medication. 27:07
โ— Depression canโ€™t be fixed with antidepressants: it can be genetic, but for most people, it is a reaction to their environment. 29:39
๐Ÿฉบ All options should be laid out for the patient to choose from: when you need to find a new doctor. 32:07
๐Ÿ˜‡ The best predictor of you getting what you want is liking your therapist and feeling close to them. 34:23

2564

โœจ Getting back to herself and self-care: being a mom of two small kids and navigating so many things. 02:18
๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐ŸŽค Lauren is a performer in musicals, film, and TV: building back the strength and stamina to be able to do the things she loves. 03:47
๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Anatomy associated with singing benefits from yoga and running. After pregnancy, she needs to work daily on her abs just to be able to sing and perform. 06:05
๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿฝ Diastasis recti and postpartum recovery: you donโ€™t have to lose weight, but you have to re-knit abs together. 09:37
๐Ÿ˜ Settling and grounding for mental health: meditation, connecting with family, tracking her time, and having an accountability friend. 11:45
โฐ How tracking time is helping Lauren: the process of tracking time and tracking emotions on a daily basis to get structure and create a more realistic schedule. 14:07
โ— Try to apply time audits in your life. 20:42
๐ŸŽญ Moments of a performerโ€™s job can be glamorous, but most of the time it is hard work and unpaid preparation for auditions. 21:33
๐Ÿ˜ซ Being a recovering perfectionist and having issues with procrastinating: getting burned out and tired. 23:06
๐Ÿ‘‰ Thinking about what are the things that are giving the greatest impact in the least amount of time is the perfect baseline to change your patterns of behavior and life. 26:30
๐Ÿฆพ Think about your body as a beautiful machine: choreographing life to run smoothly, but we are humans with emotions, not machines. 27:21
๐Ÿ˜‡ Therapy has been amazing for Lauren: rationalize how to work through the problem and chase your base emotion to see what is lacking in your life. 30:33
๐Ÿคฉ Emotions are helpful guides of where to go and acknowledge that: trust your intuition. 35:41
๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ We have been trained over time to be disconnected from our body and internal wisdom: nine out of ten times, intuition is your body trying to speak to you. 37:25

๐Ÿ›Œ Being diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and POTS at 30: life completely changed for her.ย  04:51
๐ŸฅŠ Having a chronic condition is an ongoing fight: accepting your new normal and giving yourself time to grieve. 07:44ย 
๐Ÿค— The importance of self-compassion and forgiveness: treat ourselves just like you would a friend. 09:28
๐ŸŒŸ Life is beautifully brutal: all the good that came out of the traumatic events in Heatherโ€™s life. 10:48
โœจ Really knowing and trusting yourself and your voice: showing your vulnerability opens other people towards you. 14:50

616

๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ How do I reconcile the concept of radical acceptance with the idea that I need to lose weight or fix something in my body? 00:10
โš ๏ธ Nothing good comes from a black-and-white way of thinking. 01:28
๐Ÿฅ… The goal is not to practice self-love all day every day but to be aware we want to practice it more. 03:18
๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ It is a challenging journey, not a fairy tale with a final destination. 04:45
๐ŸŽฏ If you approach weight loss with this new perspective, thatโ€™s the opposite of giving up. 05:54
๐ŸŒŸ How do you reconcile the idea of loving yourself with the idea that you are flawed: squishy, messy, fluffy, beautiful gray zone is your spot! 06:48

๐ŸŒธ Be a little tender towards yourself: delicate balance that we have to strive for. 16:35

2112

2๏ธโƒฃ Two things Cait thinks can change peoplesโ€™ lives: resentment and boundaries. 03:05
๐Ÿคฏ Underneath resentment is a feeling of unfairness; either because you're over-giving or because you're under-recognized. 06:23
โš ๏ธ Resentment is a powerful tool: The most important question you need to learn to ask yourself. 07:00
๐ŸŽฏ Sometimes, we are resentful because somebody is crossing our boundaries: internal and external boundaries people donโ€™t talk about. 09:13
โœ๏ธ #1 Find out what all of the unspoken expectations are: start a resentment journal. 11:02
๐Ÿšช Nobody talks about boundaries as being something that allows you to invite in 13:59

๐Ÿ‘‰ Boundaries are so intertwined with our values and our families. 20:34
๐Ÿ˜‡ Everyone struggles with boundaries: they are ever-changing and depend on the people surrounding us. 24:11
๐Ÿค• When resentment builds up, it will turn into burnout and manifest as physical diseases. 28:17

๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ Missouri is a state in which using cannabis is allowed for medical purposes, but it might be legalized for recreational use as well. 02:47
๐Ÿคฏ Cannabis is dangerous, but alcohol is ok? 03:11
๐Ÿค• A big stigma around cannabis is unfair: the plant helps huge numbers of people with various mental and medical issues. 04:45
๐Ÿ‘  Successful cannabis companies are being run by women: Lindsey held a panel to connect women in her industry. 07:50
๐Ÿ˜‡ Spiritual perspective of marijuana: she is a special plant. 11:21
๐Ÿ˜ฉ Lyndseyโ€™s issues with insomnia escalated: CBD and THC together really helped with her trauma, PTSD, and anxiety. 12:56
๐Ÿ˜Ž Nutritionists have an obligation to help people without hurting them: marijuana tinctures and edibles have no side effects. 17:57
