    Glucose: Your Continuous Marker of Health with Dr. Casey Means

    Glucose: Your Continuous Marker of Health with Dr. Casey Means

    Glucose is seen as something that only diabetics need to think about. WRONG!
    Glucose is becoming more and more apparent as a true marker of health. Too much of it over a prolonged period of time can lead to insulin resistance, can impact your inflammation, and impact mood, brain fog, weight gain, and ultimately (potentially) things like Alzheimers (which is now being called "Type 3 Diabetes").
    Today we are talking about the importance of glucose for healthy people with Dr. Casey Means. Dr. Casey is a a fantastic Stanford trained physician, ENT surgeon, nutritionist, and now cofounder of a new biowearable company that helps track you glucose levesls. Dr. Casey's multivaried background of deep knowledge and breadth of knowledge in health allows her to speak widely in all things related to health, which you will see in this interview.
    This conversation of glucose touches on why it's important for women - and it's ties to:
    PCOSBrain FogMetabolic FitnessHeavy PeriodsAlzheimersStress Skin Aging
    FOLLOW DR. CASEY -- You can find Dr. Casey on her instagram (@drcaseyskitchen) and find out more about the continuous glucose monitor (CGM) that we were talking about at Levels Health.

    Healing Women's Physical Trauma with Dr. Meghan Helwig

    Healing Women's Physical Trauma with Dr. Meghan Helwig

    Have you ever thought of how you physical trauma (low back pain, headaches, etc.) are linked to emotional trauma?
    Today we are talking about physical pain with Dr. Meghan Helwig, a sought out Doctor of Physical Therapy based in Southern California but seeing clients all over the nation. But in truth that does not give her justice – she more of a physical therapist, a coach, a philosopher, sister, and psychologist rolled into one. She approaches pain not just from the acute place of injury, but rather also looks at your environment - relationships, how you breath, your daily habits, etc. She looks to understand not only your pain, but where you body is in terms of mobility, stability and strength.
    This conversation of physical pain stemming from emotional or past physical trauma (e.g., giving birth, having surgery on your trunk area, etc.) is important. I love that Meghan also intertwines the importance of breathwork into her practice (did you know that you breath 20,000 times a day?!?!). In Meghan's eyes, breath is paramount to the healing journey, which is something that many PTs will not tell you or not ask you about.
    You can find Meghan in sunny California or on the other side of a zoom call. She does consults across the world and is someone who really acts as a detective to understand your health. You can find out more info at www.primalstrengthpt.com or see her amazing tips on instagram at @primalstrengthdoc
    Enjoy the convo.

    Birth Control's Impact on Your Brain with Sarah Hill, PhD

    Birth Control's Impact on Your Brain with Sarah Hill, PhD

    Birth control impacting more than just whether you can have a child?!? Say what!
    Today we are talking about birth control with the brilliant evolutionary psychology researcher, Dr. Sarah Hill. She's a professor and researcher who 's focus shifted to something that she happened upon when she realized it was impacting her own life - birth control. 
    Her book provides an extremely even look at the Pill - the pros and cons, and how it has changed how we think, who we are attracted to, and even has larger implications on society as a whole.
    Sarah has more than 50 scientific publications and research grants to her name and she's been featured in publications from the Scientific American to the Economist to the Washington Post. 
    What I love most about her book, "This is your brain on birth control: the surprising science of women, hormones, and the law of unintended consequences" is that Sarah is not prescriptive or judgemental about it. She's very measured and just provides us with the science so that we can make a decision on our own! 
    She paints a picture that has many downsides including impacts to memory, mental health, sexual libido, and choice of mate, but she's also measured about the fact that many modern women may not be as far along in their careers or where they want to be in life had they not been on the pill for a period of time. 
    This conversation is one I’ve forwarded to a number of my girlfriends who have been on the pill – please do the same because more women need to know about the potential impacts that the pill can have in their stress levels, their thought patterns and their overall happiness.
    Enjoy the convo.

    Fertility 101 and Preconception Care for Women AND MEN with Dr. Jaclyn Chasse

    Dr. Jaclyn Chasse is a naturopath who graduated from Bastyr University and then proceeded to work in a clinical setting and very quickly ipening up her own clinic focused on fertility and sexual health. She combines clinical practice, lab sciences, extensive teaching and strategic leadership. She’s the President of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and she has served as a Trustee for the American Herbal Products Association. 
     
    Dr. Jaclyn currently works for (Emerson Ecologics), the largest distributor of dietary supplements to health care professionals, where she provides oversight of the Medical Education and Quality teams.
    I really love how she blends the naturopath holistic side of health with the tangible, practical side of understanding the place for supplements and more allopathic, western approaches. She has a good blend of both sides and I think you'll see that come out in the talk.
    I also think it's amazing how excited she gets about the body and specifically cervical mucus. Only when someone is geeking out that hard can you tell that they are an expert in their field. Happy Listening!
    In this episode we cover -
    the importance and amazingness of cervical mucus (yep)infertility - a western vs. eastern approachwhat tests she has done on her patients to test fertilityIVF versus other fertility treatmentsteas and supplements that help wtih fertilityrecommendations for fertiltiy during times of stress (covid)
    This is a great episode to listen if you are trying to conceive or starting to think about that in the coming 1-2 years. Note - this episode is also for the guys as there some interesting facts in here too about your part of the fertility equation as well!
