    Ivirlei Brookes—Genius Mindset Shifts to Transform Your Career, Friendships, Romantic Life and Anti-Racism Work

    On today’s episode, I sat down with one of my favorite guests ever, the amazing Ivirlei Brookes.  Ivirlei is an actress and mindset mentor for creatives. Her company, Mavenelle, focuses on helping female creatives and entrepreneurs create a lifestyle around self mastery and wellness. 



    You may know her from her recent viral video, White Women Who Truly Want To Help: Here’s How, which has over 5 million views on Instagram, and was re-shared by pretty much every huge celeb, including Hailey Bieber, Lili Reinhart, and Ellen Pompeo. She’s also creating online workshops for Fall, and currently at work writing her first non-fiction book about shaping your own identity and removing limiting beliefs. In this episode, we talk about: 



    * what scripting is, and how it helps her create her dream life

    * the morning routine that sets her day up for success

    * an example of how manifestation actually had real results in her life

    * the one quality all of the mega-famous people she's met have in common

    * how to overcome limitations from your childhood

    * the genius, simple phrase she uses to get people to actually listen to her

    * how to be a good friend, and to cultivate incredible, deep female friendships

    * what her love language is, and how to use love languages to strengthen all of your relationships

    * her advice to people frustrated by dating

    * how being in a inter-racial relationship has impacted her, especially at this moment in time

    * what white people get wrong about anti-racism work

    * her advice for people trying to incorporate anti-racism into their businesses, from corporate life to food blogging or wellness coaching

    * how to diversify your income without starting your own business

    * how to know if you'd be a good entrepreneur, and what people get wrong when they're first starting their business

    * how she developed sexual and body confidence, and why that was so important to her thriving in other areas of her life



    You can find Lauren on Instagram at @ivirlei, and we’d both love to hear your reactions to this episode, so please screenshot and write any thoughts or questions that come up as you’re listening and tag us both (I’m @lizmoody). 



    Enjoy!

    This episode is sponsored by Kyoto Botanicals, the first CBD brand I’ve recommended on this podcast! They believe every ingredient matters and should contribute to your overall health, which is why they only use USDA certified organic oils to deliver flavor with benefits. Their products only have organic, single-source plant extracts, not lab developed flavors and colors, so you get whole plant benefits as nature intended. Finally, their hemp is grown according to strict organic and biodynamic standards, and they only use only organic coconut MCT oil as a carrier. I recommend all of their products, but especially their tinctures. You can get a whopping 25% off your order (AND they always have free shipping!) by using the code “HEALTHIERTOGETHER” at kyotobotanicals.com.



    This episode is also sponsored by Garden of Life, one of my all-time favorite brands. I focused on stress-relieving products in this episode, including their Mood Plus probiotic, which is formulated specifically to help with stress and anxiety, and their a href="https://amzn.

    How You—Yes, YOU!—Can Help Make Wellness More Diverse and Accessible

    How You—Yes, YOU!—Can Help Make Wellness More Diverse and Accessible

    Today’s long overdue podcast is about why accessibility and diversity have been such a problem in the wellness world, and how we can all begin to support that changing. I wanted to feature people from different aspects of the wellness world to really paint a larger picture about the limiting factors at play, from doctor bias to the lack of diversity in workout studios to the unique challenges of breaking into the food startup world—to illustrate that there’s no part of the wellness world that’s untouched by this problem.



    My first guest today is Chrissy King, a writer, speaker, fitness and strength coach, as well as the teacher of the Anti-Racism for Wellness Professionals Class, which I’m signed up for. You can find Chrissy online at chrissyking.com, and on Instagram @iamchrissyking. We talk about why anti-racism work is fundamental to wellness, what you can personally do when your favorite wellness spots (gyms, restaurants) aren’t diverse, and what needs to happen AFTER we educate ourselves in order to create real change.



    My next guest today is Ibhraeem Basir, the founder of A Dozen Cousins, one of my favorite food brands. You can find A Dozen Cousins online at adozencousins.com and on Instagram @adozencousins. We talk about what anyone can do to support the expansion and success of Black-founded businesses, his advice for anyone worried about cultural appropriation in the food world , and his company’s social initiatives to help bring healthy eating to communities in need.



    My last guest today is Dr. Tosin Odunsi, an Obstetrics & Gynecology physician. She’s the founder of The Mentorship Squad, a community comprised of Black and Latinx women seeking mentorship along their journey to becoming U.S. physicians. You can find Dr. Odunsi on instagram @lifebytosin and online at lifebytosin.com. We discuss why many common wellness treatments today actually have their roots in the abuse of Black people, why Black people consistently have higher rates of acute and chronic diseases, including COVID-19, and why only 5% of doctors are Black, and only 2% are Black women—and how we can help change those numbers.



    This is an important episode, and I hope its startles you, inspires you, and makes you think, I’d love to hear your thoughts and learnings on Instagram–please screenshot and tag me (@lizmoody) and my guests and share your thoughts.

    The Healthier Together Podcast is proud to support Partake Foods. When Denise Woodard's daughter was diagnosed with severe food allergies as an infant, Denise looked for healthy & safe snacks, came up short, & decided to make her own. That's how Partake was born. Now in retailers nationwide, including Target, Partake cookies are gluten-free, vegan, and free of the top 14 allergens and come in a variety of crunchy and soft-baked flavors. Food allergies, which affect 1 in 13 kids, are shown to be more likely in black children. Getting safe food into the hands of the Black community with allergies is a top priority for Partake, so the entire month of June, 10% of total sales on Partake's website will go to the amazing efforts of Food Equality Initiative to ensure food insecure families have access to the food, education and advocacy they need.



    They were kind enough to share a discount code—if you shop on PartakeFoods.com during the month of June, you can get 10% off your order and free shipping on $20 or more with code HEALTHIERTOGETHER.



    We’re also proud to support The Honey Pot Company, a plant-powered feminine care company.

    Ask The Doctor: Gut Health Edition—Eliminating Bloat & Constipation, The Best Supplements, Nourishing Your Microbiome and MUCH More with Will Bulsiewicz, MD

    This is the third edition of Ask the Doctor, where I ask functional medicine doctors a ton of questions in a single episode so you can reap the benefits of all of their knowledge (check out the first episode, featuring Dr. Will Cole talking about inflammation, hormone balance, birth control, and more, here, and the second episode, which features  Dr. Ellen Vora in the most comprehensive conversation about anxiety ever, here).



    This episode is all about gut health, and features the amazing Will Bulsiewicz, MD, known as Dr. B, the Gut Health MD. Dr. B is a board-certified gastroenterologist, a graduate of Georgetown University School of Medicine and was chief medical resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and chief gastroenterology fellow at the University of North Carolina Hospitals. He's authored more than twenty articles in the top American gastroenterology journals, and he just released his very first book, Fiber Fueled. 



    This episode is SO comprehensive—I tried to ask Will basically every question about keeping your gut health, including: 



    * How alcohol consumption impacts the gut microbiome

    * The best type of alcohol for gut health

    * The cause of acid reflux and how to deal with it

    * The best supplements for gut health (and the ones that aren’t worth your money)

    * The number one thing you can do to help nurture a healthy microbiome

    * The sneaky common beverage that  causes a LOT of bloating

    * The best type of diet for gut health

    * Is collagen good for your gut?

    * Is coffee good for your gut?

    * Are food sensitivity tests worth the money?

    * Does apple cider vinegar actually do anything for gut health?

    * The best type of tea for gut health

    * The types of herbs for gut health

    * Is cooked food or raw food better for gut health?

    * The one gut health mistake everyone makes

    * Exactly hat to do when you know you're going to eat a bad-for-you-meal

    * The connection between gut health and hangovers

    * What everyone gets wrong about FODMAPs

    * And so much more!



    You can find out more about Dr. B at theplantfedgut.com. We’d both of course love to hear your thoughts and reactions to this episode, so please tag him (@theguthealthmd) and me (@lizmoody) so we can continue the conversation over there.  We’ll also be doing a follow up on Instagram Live next week, so write down any of your follow up questions and stay tuned!

Liz is a great interviewer

I’m loving the Healthier Together podcast. Liz has really strong interviewing skills and asks all the questions I want the answers to. She’s entertaining, warm and generous with her knowledge and experience. If you ever struggle with anxiety, I especially highly recommend checking out any of the episodes dealing with this topic. You’ll feel less alone in your struggles and will come away with some ideas and tools that might help you. Keep up the great work, Liz. ❤️

Love love love!!

I’ve just started listening to Liz Moody’s podcasts and she is probably my all time favourite to listen to now! She gives a very genuine and comfortable vibe, almost as if you are just hanging out with some friends having a conversation! Makes my work day go by way faster! One of my favourites so far which is a bit older now is her podcast with Lauren Singer!

Crisper aka Cara ,

Clare Bowen Ep

Absolutely love the episode with Clare Bowen. Found it really thought provoking and with the new just arising it’s really sparked the concept of gratitude and instilling that within myself on a daily basis because no matter what there is so much to be grateful for and we all have different experiences but that is what makes us human. Loved Nashville and now love Clare Bowen even more ☺️
