    Ep 54 with psychotherapist India Haylor

    Ep 54 with psychotherapist India Haylor

    Purely Obsessional OCD (Pure O) with psychotherapist India Haylor.

    Don’t believe obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is *only* about hand-washing, checking and tidiness. There’s much more to it, including a lesser known set of invisible symptoms referred to as ‘Pure O’. They can involve mental ruminations, going over memories to check them, arranging thoughts, and mentally assessing lots of “What if?” scenarios. There are many subtypes and themes; each deeply distressing to the person who cannot stop obsessing about them.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀
    My special guest on healthHackers™ episode 54 is India Haylor - psychotherapist and founder of OCD Excellence. She’s been working in OCD for 17 years in both the UK and USA. India also has OCD - and the therapists she trains have had personal experience with it too (it’s part of the hiring criteria).
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀
    In this episode, hear India discuss:
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀
    🔹how Pure O differs from the OCD you’ve previously heard about
    🔹thought neutralizing, counting and ‘lucky’ numbers
    🔹chewing, blinking, and other secondary subtype obsessions
    🔹what does relationship OCD (ROCD) look and feel like?
    🔹treatment methods for Pure O
    🔹is it important for a therapist to spot Pure O versus traditional OCD?
    🔹why therapists can struggle with if they’re not experts in OCD
    🔹when India’s OCD started and how it manifested
    🔹the positive aspects of living with OCD
    🔹why India only recruits therapists who have personal experience of OCD

    Ep 53 with psychologist and nutritionist Dr Nicole Beurkens

    Ep 53 with psychologist and nutritionist Dr Nicole Beurkens

    Child behavior challenges, anxiety, ADHD & autism - and the role of nutrition and lifestyle factors.

    Dr Nicole Beurkens is known as one of the only clinical psychologists in the world with advanced degrees in nutrition and special education who has spent over 20 years helping families identify the root of their children’s behavior, attention, anxiety, or mood disorders - sometimes where other specialists have failed - using lifestyle solutions before medication.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    She’s also a mother-of-four, an award-winning therapist, a published researcher, international consultant, author of two books - and somehow still has time to lead a team of clinicians at her treatment center in Michigan.

    After learning about Dr Beurkens’ integrative work, I was really keen to interview her on healthHackers. When I was teenager, at least two practitioners linked my debilitating anxiety to fluctuating blood sugar levels. It resulted in a major dietary shift for me (and my family). At the time, we knew barely anything about possible associations between food and brain health.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    In episode 53, Dr Beurkens shares her insights on:

    🔹the rising number of childhood disorders
    🔹why she looks for the root cause before prescribing psychiatric medication
    🔹the real problem found to be affecting 40% of children diagnosed with ADHD
    🔹the significance of the gut microbiome in child mental health
    🔹nutrition solutions for improved child behavior
    🔹the vitamin deficiencies that can affect behavior
    🔹diet changes with the most success in her ADHD and autism patients
    🔹when placebo pills have been found to work better than psychiatric medication
    🔹the problem with disorder labels and misdiagnosis
    🔹what is pandemic-life doing to children’s emotional and behavioral health?
    🔹how your reaction to the COVID-19 crisis affects your child’s behavior
    🔹and - how Dr Beurkens limits her children’s screen time (without an argument!)

    Ep 51 with physical therapist Dr Chelsea Matthews

    Ep 51 with physical therapist Dr Chelsea Matthews

    Back pain! 😩 One of the most common complaints affecting the majority of us at some point in our lives. Anyone else spend too long hunching over a laptop in early lockdown days?
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Chat to someone who’s had a back issue and you’ll hear how daunting it can be. Maybe you’ve been told you have to lose weight to get rid of your back pain. There might be fears around surgery, inactivity, worsening injuries - you name it.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    So I wanted to do a #healthHackers episode with Dr Chelsea Matthews - a physical therapist, exercise specialist and former athlete who loves to nip back ache in the bud and resolve her clients’ pain WITHOUT resorting to surgery, injections - or ANY procedures that would mean they have to take time off work.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I had no idea there were so many myths around injuries until I found Chelsea. In this podcast, she debunks plenty of ideas about looking after your back that you’ve probably innocently believed for a long, long time.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    In episode 51, we cover:
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    🔹how Chelsea has helped hundreds of clients get out of pain and back to their workouts without injections or surgery
    🔹tips for a healthy back
    🔹is rest always the best first aid for an injury?
    🔹things to know if you’ve been told you need to lose weight to be pain free
    🔹is sleeping on your front bad for your back?
    🔹you’ll likely get a disk protrusion one day - but that’s OK
    🔹you must always sit up straight for a healthy back - true or false?
    🔹staying on top of your mental health during recovery
    🔹reframing pain
    🔹plus, how strong our spines really are

    Ep 50 with functional dentistry expert Dr Mark Burhenne

    Ep 50 with functional dentistry expert Dr Mark Burhenne

    Have you ever heard of mouth taping? I recently posted about it on my Instagram Stories the other week (@healthhackers). I’d seen functional dentistry expert and creator of AsktheDentist.com Dr Mark Burhenne talking about it, so I asked my followers if they wanted me to record a healthHackers episode with him. The result of the vote was a majority YES. Well, here we are.👇

    But we don’t just talk about mouth taping. Oh no, Dr B was kind enough to let me quiz him on his expert insights gathered over 35 years as a dentist. Some of it might surprise you. He takes a “microbiome-first” approach to dental health; big on prevention and getting to the root cause of a problem. He’s also the author of ‘The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox.’

    In this episode, you’ll hear Dr B’s views on:

    🔹how to keep your oral microbiome happy
    🔹why it’s better to be a nose-breather than a mouth-breather
    🔹mouth taping and why he recommends it
    🔹a link between oral health and Alzheimer’s
    🔹why using mouthwash is a mistake
    🔹what to eat for a healthy mouth
    🔹why he uses a hydroxyapatite toothpaste instead of a fluoride-containing paste
    🔹insights for healthy-minded parents who can’t figure out why their children need fillings
    🔹why he brushes his teeth before breakfast
    🔹why you shouldn’t brush straight after a meal
    🔹how pregnancy can affect teeth - and what women can do about it
    🔹an easy step to help your oral microbiome after a cup of coffee or glass of wine (it’s not brushing)
    🔹plus, what it means if you snore

    Ep 49 with skin specialist and clinical nutritionist Jennifer Fugo

    Ep 49 with skin specialist and clinical nutritionist Jennifer Fugo

    Eczema, psoriasis, hives, dermatitis, rosacea… have you ever dealt with a chronic skin rash? If yes, I know your misery. And so does this week’s healthHacker’s expert guest - more so than most. As a functional clinical nutritionist specializing in chronic rashes (and who’s suffered with her own painful skin issues) Jennifer Fugo is the go-to practitioner for her clients who are trying to figure out what’s underlying their rashes, plus any accompanying symptoms, like brain fog, chronic fatigue, autoimmunity and gut health issues.

    It was Jennifer’s experience of successfully improving her own painful eczema that inspired her to help others figure out the root causes of their chronic rashes. She’s the founder of Skinterrupt - an online hub of information on a variety of difficult skin conditions, and the host of the Healthy Skin Show podcast. Jennifer is also a member of the American Nutrition Association, an advisor for the Nutritional Aesthetics Alliance, and authored the book ‘The Savvy Gluten-Free Shopper: How to Eat Healthy without Breaking the Bank.’

    In this episode, you’ll hear Jennifer’s views on:

    🔹the hidden causes of chronic rashes
    🔹what's worked to get rid of her clients' rashes
    🔹the one thing that everyone with a chronic rash should NOT do
    🔹the problem with elimination diets
    🔹three tips for rebuilding healthy skin
    🔹why being ‘too clean’ can be bad for our skin
    🔹the purpose of a rash
    🔹the impact of a carnivore diet on her clients’ test results
    🔹a telling effect from switching to a vegan diet

    The skin and its links to the gut microbiome is so intriguing to me. Some of you might remember the article I wrote about my three-year chronic case of perioral dermatitis (and what I did that finally got rid of it). I updated it recently and added a quote from Jennifer in the piece too. You can read it here:
