    Sex and Gender; Meanings, Definition, Identity, and Expression with Dr Riki Lane of Monash Health Gender Clinic

    Sex and Gender; Meanings, Definition, Identity, and Expression with Dr Riki Lane of Monash Health Gender Clinic

    When filling out official documents, you are often asked to provide your name, birth date, and sex or gender. But have you ever been asked to provide your sex and your gender?
    Most people use sexuality to refer to the gender(s) to which they are attracted. However, sexuality means different things to different people. A person’s sex, as determined by his or her biology, does not always correspond with their gender; therefore, the terms “sex” and “gender” are not interchangeable.
    In this week's podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Dr Riki Lane, an amazing researcher with expertise in qualitative and quantitative methods in the areas of sociology of health, science and gender, sex and sexuality.
    Dr Riki Lane is a Research Fellow at the Department of General Practice since 2011, undertaking qualitative and ethnographic research studies into models of primary health care. He is also a Project/Research Worker at the Monash Health Gender Clinic. Their Gender Clinic work includes: researching ways to improved health care for trans and gender diverse (TGD) people; facilitating consumer and community participation; and developing and delivery of education in TGD affirmative health care practice.
    Don't miss this episode as we talk about inclusion, gender diversity, identity and language.

    Rosy cheeks, Rosacea or something else? With Bethany Barnes and Kathryn Lock of The Rosy Club

    Rosy cheeks, Rosacea or something else? With Bethany Barnes and Kathryn Lock of The Rosy Club

    April is Rosacea Awareness Month.  According to the National Rosacea Society, the goal of Rosacea Awareness Month is to spread public education on this skin condition so that more people who may have rosacea seek medical help before it gets worse, and so those whose lives are affected can find greater public acceptance and understanding.

    Research suggests that many people with rosacea may not be reconsulting with a healthcare professional after losing faith due to previous negative experiences with prescribed medications or even their dermatologist. As a result, many are left to adopt short-term approaches to treatment, choosing to self-treat with over-the-counter skin care products when flare-ups occur, rather than seeking advice from medical professionals.

    As part of our ongoing commitment to raising awareness of rosacea and the hidden burden of this skin condition, Marni will be speaking with not just one— but two incredible rosacea advocate. Bethany Barnes and Kathryn Lock of The Rosy Club.

    Kathryn and Bethany are the founding members of The Rosy Club. It is a skin positive and rosacea awareness Instagram page that aims to inspire everyone and anyone to love the skin they’re in.

    Join us in this week's amazing episode as it's the perfect opportunity to build on the momentum and encourage even more people with rosacea to find their voice and share their experiences.

    Normal Adjustments with Lymphoedema with Nicole Faccio, Lymphoedema Patient and Advocate

    Normal Adjustments with Lymphoedema with Nicole Faccio, Lymphoedema Patient and Advocate

    The lymphatic system is consists of many tiny channels throughout the body called lymph vessels or lymphatics. Like blood vessels, these join together to form larger channels. The lymphatic system carries lymph, a colourless, watery fluid that contains lymphocytes – a type of white blood cell.

    Lymphoedema is the swelling of part or parts of the body that occurs when the lymphatic system is not working properly.

    Swelling associated with lymphedema can occur anywhere in the body, including the arms, legs, genitals, face, neck, chest wall, and oral cavity.

    In this week's podcast episode, Marni travels virtually to London to speak with Nicole Faccio, podcast host and a lymphoedema patient and advocate.

    Nicole was born with Primary Lymphoedema and unlike many people, visible at birth mostly in her left arm. Her Lymphoedema is known as Milroy's Disease and it is categorised by significant congenital malformations of the lymphatic system. Nicole has lymphoedema swelling in most of her body, including both legs, left arm, abdomen, parts of her back, face and internal lymphatic masses as well. For the most part, she lived a normal life - went to a regular school, graduated with an Engineering degree and moved to New York City to pursue a career in Tech, and most recently moved to London in the pursuit of her dream job. Nicole has adjusted her life around the needs of lymphoedema and decided that the only way she would be able to have a long functional life was not to fight against it, but with it.

    Don't miss this incredible episode as Nicole shares her story with lymphoedema and living her life normally- with adjustments.

    Food Chemical Intolerance; What you need to know with Ashli Templer of Yours Only®

    Food Chemical Intolerance; What you need to know with Ashli Templer of Yours Only®

    Some people are more sensitive to natural food chemicals and find when they eat large amounts of them, they experience distressing symptoms. The most common natural food chemicals that can cause unpleasant symptoms include salicylates, amines, glutamate. Chemicals are found everywhere in nature, including in the food we eat and the water we drink. Some of these, like vitamins, contribute to maintaining good health, while others increase aroma and flavour and make food enjoyable.

    How much you can tolerate will vary depending on how sensitive you are. Some people have a much lower tolerance threshold than others and will experience a reaction to smaller amounts. Others though, will find that levels build up over a few days before their tolerance threshold is breached and they experience symptoms. Chronic or recurrent symptoms can occur when small amounts of high chemical foods are eaten regularly. When this happens levels build up in your system gradually and specific triggers are not obvious.

    In this week's podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Ashli Templer, founder of Pep Creative, skincare brand Yours Only® and podcast Allergy Proof™.

    Ash has been dealing with pesky intolerances and skin conditions since day dot, as well as Hashimoto's disease. In 2018 after discovering she has a food chemical intolerance and was unable to find any products that were skin, body and bathroom-approved, Yours Only® was born. A series of all system skincare designed with allergies, intolerances, skin conditions and auto-immune diseases in mind, dressed in packaging that looks good enough for a #shelfie. Yours Only® seeks to help and inspire others to look after their bodies, with a % of the profit from each bottle sold going towards allergy research at RPAH Hospital, Sydney. On her mission to open the conversation, Ash then developed Allergy Proof™, a podcast dedicated to helping hard-working women with health issues get through life.

    Don't miss this episode as Ash talks about the common misconceptions in allergies, topical skincare and food chemical intolerance.

    Toxic Positivity; What is it? With Kayla Juettner, Chronic Illness and Disability Advocate

    Toxic Positivity; What is it? With Kayla Juettner, Chronic Illness and Disability Advocate

    Good vibes only and positivity is a concept where people believe in keeping only the positive and rejecting any negative thoughts and notions.

    This approach also believes that you’re in control of your body and what happens to you and that you can simply remove yourself from negative situations. You’re to blame if you stay in the negative situation or thoughts, and you’re to blame for bringing up negativity. It is the stigma that bad feelings are well, bad!

    Having unrealistic hopes is self-destructive, as you are putting mental and emotional energy into making it happen, and are likely to be disappointed when you fail to reach your goal.
    Can you already see where this is going to fail?


    In this week's podcast episode, Marni travelled virtually to New York to speak with Kayla Juettner. Chronic illness and disability advocate, and the woman behind the Instagram account @chronically.kayla.

    Being born sick made Kayla create unique challenges and outlook on the world. Dealing with appointments, and hospitals rooms, and disability can be lonely; thus, @chronically.kayla was born. She wanted to create a space to foster conversations and community around living with chronic illness and disability.

    Inspiration Porn peak ableism that can’t help but damage people living with skin conditions and disabilities. Many people perpetuate toxic positivity without realising what they are doing, many times as a form of ableism.

    Join us in this episode as Kayla talks about toxic positivity, ableism and realistic optimism.

    Life with Lipoedema with Caroline Sprott of Lipödem Mode

    Life with Lipoedema with Caroline Sprott of Lipödem Mode

    Lipoedema: No, it’s not a typo. It’s a real condition that’s often overlooked or confused with lymphoedema.

    Nearly 370 million women across the globe live with Lipoedema. What is regularly associated with unruly weight gain in its initial stages can quickly spiral out of control if left undiagnosed. Often striking in a woman’s mid-20s, Lipoedema is a condition that leads to the excessive buildup of fat cells primarily in the arms and legs.

    Lipoedema isn’t rare, but it’s rarely diagnosed. Most doctors think obesity, heart failure, kidney failure, liver disease, thyroid problems or medications cause the leg swelling or think it’s lymphoedema, which is swelling that usually occurs in one arm or leg.

    While lipoedema and lymphoedema both do involve swelling, that’s where their similarities end.

    In this week's podcast episode, Marni travels virtually on the other side of the world to speak with Caroline Sprott. Germany's First Lipoedema Fashion Blogger and one of the hosts of Der Lipödem Podcast.

    Ten years ago, after leaving from work experiencing excruciating pain, Caroline was diagnosed with lipoedema. The diagnosis ultimately made her a strong person, even if her journey towards acceptance was not always easy. Now, Caroline speaks in lymphatic events, models for compression campaigns while continuously raising awareness for the lipoedema community.

    Don't miss this episode as Caroline shares all about lipoedema plus bonus fashion tips!
