    Learning to Rest Well with Dafne Wiswell, The Chronic Illness Coach.

    Learning to Rest Well with Dafne Wiswell, The Chronic Illness Coach.

    My guest on today's podcast, Dafne Wiswell is no stranger to chronic illness. She has dealt with depression, panic attacks, rheumatoid arthritis and Hashimoto's. Her 3 children all have health issues too - Sensory Processing Disorder, juvenile arthritis and Type 1 Diabetes!
    Unsurprisingly, Dafne thinks stress was a trigger for her auto-immune conditions and so has dedicated a lot of time and effort in learning how to manage her stress well so she can have the energy and capacity to, well, deal with everyday life!
    Some of the keys we talk about were:
    Trusting your intuition with diet and going back to what you know works well for you when you need to (plant based for her)How Dafne protects her mental and emotional spaceBoundaries with peopleTurning off notifications on her phone.Stop multitasking.Being really careful with her schedule and planning time for the things that make her feel grounded.Things that help Dafne to rest. MindsetLetting go of health 'perfection'The thyroid personalityWhat I enjoyed about this conversation with Dafne was her gentleness with herself, and I'm sure with those she works with. She has a sense of peace which I'm sure comes from her faith and having done the hard work of 'letting go' of so many of the uncontollables!

    Tapping as a tool to reduce stress with Brad Yates

    Tapping as a tool to reduce stress with Brad Yates

    Tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique is a tool where you use your fingers to 'tap' on a sequence of acupressure points on the body.
    I know it does sound a bit crazy, but think of it as acupuncture without the needles. It's a tool that has been shown in different studies to reduce cortisol (stress hormone). In one sense it's a form of active meditation.
    In this episode of Let's Talk Thyroid, I'm chatting with internationally renowned 'tapper', Brad Yates about the technique which really is quite simple, so once you know how, it's easy to use anytime and anyplace on pretty much anything!
    Stress can be a trigger for auto-immune thyroid diseases (Hashimoto's and Graves). Stress also creates inflammation which wreaks havoc on thyroid (& much more) health, so the more tools we have in our stress relief toolkit the better.
    As Brad says, if our bodies aren't constantly dealing with 'ambient stress', all the time, there is more bandwidth for the body to heal. So whether tapping directly or indirectly helps our thyroid health, it doesn't really matter!
    There are times of course when it's best to seek professional support or to even tap with a friend. If you're dealing with some really big emotions, stress or trauma, please get support. 
    You'll find it easier to WATCH the actual tapping sequences. We go through 2 in the episode. They can be found:
    Intro stress sequence: @ 31 min
    Longer thyroid sequence: @38.45

    ---------

    Brad Yates is known internationally for his creative and often humorous use of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). Brad is the author of the best-selling children's book "The Wizard's Wish," the co-author of the best-seller "Freedom at Your Fingertips," and a featured expert in the film “The Tapping Solution.” He has also been a presenter at a number of events, including Jack Canfield's Breakthrough to Success, has done teleseminars with “The Secret” stars Bob Doyle and Dr. Joe Vitale, and has been heard internationally on a number of internet radio talk shows. Brad also has well over 1000 videos on YouTube, that have been viewed over 32 million times.

    Let's Talk Detox

    Let's Talk Detox

    We are exposed to hundreds, if not thousands of chemicals each day - in the air we breath, the furniture we sit on, food we eat, medications, skin care, hair care, perfumes and air fresheners. So in this episode let’s talk all things 'detox'.
    How does our body deal with these chemicals?How can we help our bodies deal more efficiently with them?Special considerations for those with thyroid issues.How can we reduce our chemical exposure/toxic load?I get a little bit science-y (in my limited way!) and share some practical outworkings of how we can support our body's natural biotransformation (detox) pathways and how to reduce chemical exposure in the first place!
