    Autumn Smith - Healing From IBS & Anxiety, Supporting Regenerative Agriculture, Organ Meats To Support Mental Health

    Autumn Smith - Healing From IBS & Anxiety, Supporting Regenerative Agriculture, Organ Meats To Support Mental Health

    Autumn Smith (IG: @autumnfladmosmith) is the co-founder of Paleovalley and Wild Pastures. She holds a Masters in Holistic Nutrition, she's a Certified Eating Psychology Coach, and a Certified FDN Practitioner.
    Autumn's passion for health began with her own struggles with IBS and anxiety: despite a career as a professional dancer and celebrity fitness trainer, her own health was in shambles. Desperate for a cure, Autumn and her husband Chas stumbled upon the paleo diet in 2011 and within a month of beginning it, her health was completely transformed.
    Autumn then made it her mission to share the information she had learned with as many people as possible.
    In this episode, we discuss:
    Transitioning Paleovalley from California to Colorado Supporting farmers using regenerative agriculture Sourcing 100% grass-fed and grass-finished meat Growing nutrient-dense produce Making regenerative organic certification (ROC) today’s standard Shifting our focus to the bigger picture How Autumn maintains balance as a mom, wife, and entrepreneur Daily life in The Kindergarten Pod The challenges of being a “yes person" What does it mean to be a highly sensitive person? Turn your weakness into a strength Autumn being diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and an eating disorder in her teens How Autumn overcame her drug and alcohol addictions Healing digestive issues with the paleo diet Brain issues can drive gut dysfunction How to avoid the blood sugar roller coaster Organ meats are great for our mental health Eating for utility Prioritize exercise into your daily routine Tracking your heart rate variability (HRV) Building a strong community in Colorado Autumn’s father raised her to be driven in life Being in touch with your intuition Apple cider vinegar helps improve blood sugar stability Taking turmeric with anti-depressants makes them more effective Lion’s mane mushroom can help reverse mild cognitive decline Show sponsors:

Love it!

I am very happy I came across this podcast. It has answered many of the questions I had about health and has also opened my eyes to new ways to experience food and find out what works for me.
I am on my Sixth episode ( I started to listen from 2014!) working my way up.

I find Mardi and Jesse ask the questions many of us are hoping to get from each guest in the show.

Looking forward to keeping listening ✨👍🏼
