    Age Powerfully: The Secrets To Feeling Strong & Healthy In Your 40s, 50s, 60s & Beyond with JJ Virgin #FabulousFriends

    Today I’m thrilled to talk to a woman I admire so much, a role model who has helped inspire my nutrition career. JJ Virgin is a triple board-certified nutrition expert and four-time New York Times bestselling author. She’s on a mission to change the narrative from aging gracefully to aging powerfully.
    We explore what it means to age powerfully and how to do it. JJ tells us the “magic bullets” to stay healthy and strong in your 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. Hint: It’s all about resistance training, protein, and building muscle mass. JJ explains how to train to get better at life, plus her go-to exercises – and the moves she never does.
    JJ also shares her personal wellness routine, including her go-to meals, protein intake, and recovery practices. We also talk about menopause, hormone replacement therapy, and adrenal health. We wrap up with quick fire questions about her takes on caffeine, alcohol, and more.
    JJ is an inspiration as a wellness leader, mom, and example of how to age powerfully, and I know you’ll learn as much from her as I have.

    Empowering Parents with Natural Remedies for Sick Kids with Dr. Elana Roumell #WellnessWednesdays

    Empowering Parents with Natural Remedies for Sick Kids with Dr. Elana Roumell #WellnessWednesdays

    As moms, we want to do everything we can to help our kids prevent sickness and feel better faster, which is why I'm thrilled to welcome a very special guest today, Dr. Elana Roumell, a renowned pediatric naturopathic doctor, mother of three, and the brains behind the innovative Med School for Moms.
    Dr. Roumell not only co-hosts the popular Doctor Mom Podcast, but she's also the founder of Nourish Medical Center in San Diego, California. Her Doctor Mom Membership program helps moms feel calm, competent, and confident when their kid gets sick, and ultimately helps parents feel empowered with their family's healthcare decisions.
    In today's episode, we delve deep into the world of children's health, exploring holistic and homeopathic remedies. Dr. Roumell shares her expert knowledge on treating common childhood conditions, like ear infections, with natural methods by helping parents understand their causes.
    We discuss the different types of natural medicine, their roles, and easy home hacks – particularly in managing fevers and colds without traditional medication.
    A topic that has been a source of anxiety for me and many moms, especially in states with mandates, is vaccines. Dr. Roumell provides incredibly helpful insights into vaccine education, including delayed schedules and strategies to prevent adverse reactions.
    She also emphasizes the importance of informed dietary choices during illness, particularly avoiding sugar and dairy, and even shares her top recommendations for pediatric supplements to enhance immune response and gut health.
    I'm incredibly grateful to Dr. Roumell for sharing her expertise and for her unwavering advocacy in the realm of pediatric healthcare. Her dedication to empowering parents is truly inspiring. If you're eager to learn more and feel empowered in your role as a parent, I highly encourage you to explore Dr. Roumell's course.

    Calm Your Nervous System & Embrace Food Freedom with Ali Miller #FabulousFriends

    Calm Your Nervous System & Embrace Food Freedom with Ali Miller #FabulousFriends

    I’m excited for you to listen to today’s episode with Ali Miller, a registered dietitian and author of the international bestseller The Anti-Anxiety Diet and The Anti-Anxiety Diet Cookbook. Ali’s “food is medicine” philosophy is supported by the latest research for a functional, integrative approach to healing the body.
    We talk about how stress can mess with the body – from your hormones, to your mood, to your reproductive health. Ali shares tangible tools to help our bodies process cortisol and transmute stress. We also talk about the HPA Axis, and why it’s so crucial to regulating the body.
    We explore foods to decrease inflammation, restoring micronutrient deficiencies, and rebalancing neurotransmitters. Plus, Ali shares her personal practices for living a balanced life. We close with a discussion on how to educate and empower our kids to embrace food as medicine.
    This episode is filled with so many gold nuggets that I’m going to implement in my own life. I love how Ali encourages everyone to ditch diet doctrines and embrace an individualized approach. And that mission serves as the foundation of our chat today – so get ready to be motivated through emotional connection as opposed to shame and guilt.
