    In this compelling episode, our host, Nicolette, engages in a profound conversation with Maxime Sigouin, the visionary founder of Fit Vegan. Maxime's personal journey is marked by the loss of his grandfather at the age of 63 and his ex-fiancée at 39, both succumbing to bone and breast cancer, respectively. Having spent over 4.5 years as a caregiver, Maxime witnessed firsthand the toll that losing health takes on a loved one – the diminished ability to relish life fully, and the stark reality of the true cost of compromised well-being.  Motivated by these experiences, Maxime embarked on a mission to empower individuals to safeguard their bodies from preventable and reversible chronic illnesses. He champions the transformative potential of adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet coupled with an active lifestyle. Maxime has set ambitious goals – aiming to assist 10,000 people in achieving leanness, thriving, and disease-proofing their bodies on plants by 2033, and an astounding 1,000,000 by 2050.  In this insightful episode, Nicolette and Maxime reconvene for a second time to explore the intricate connections between mindset, nutrition, and holistic well-being. Together, they unravel inspiring stories, sustainable weight-loss strategies, and offer indispensable psychological tools to conquer self-sabotage while cultivating enduring habits.  Ever wondered why your weight-loss journey should prioritize sustainability? Maxime dismantles this concept, underscoring the significance of preventing weight from creeping back on. But that's not all – Maxime unveils the secret sauce to maintaining weight loss: reverse dieting. He guides you on approaching food with logic, making choices aligned with the wisdom of evolution. It's time to seize control of your health and embrace a life of fulfillment with Fit Vegan.

    Ep 123 Indigenous Realities: A Heartfelt Conversation with Mixalhítsa7 Alison Pascal

    Ep 123 Indigenous Realities: A Heartfelt Conversation with Mixalhítsa7 Alison Pascal

    Mixalhítsa7 Alison Pascal is a passionate Indigenous community leader, educator, and advocate based in British Columbia, Canada. She is a member of the Sk̲wxwú7mesh Úxwumixw and the Líl̓wat7ul Nations, and her career is focused on advancing the rights and interests of Indigenous peoples in her community and beyond. Alison is particularly interested in language revitalization, land stewardship, and cultural preservation and has worked extensively in these areas throughout her career.Mixalhítsa7's leadership and advocacy work have earned her several awards, including the Order of British Columbia and the Indspire Award, which recognizes outstanding Indigenous achievement in Canada. She has also served on several boards and committees related to Indigenous issues, including the First Peoples' Cultural Council and the Stó:lō Research and Resource Management Centre. Through her tireless work and dedication to Indigenous rights and cultural preservation, Mixalhítsa7 has become a respected and influential voice in her community and beyond. The podcast with Alison Pascal was a heart-wrenching conversation about the historical and current struggles of Indigenous communities in Canada. Pascal spoke about how the Canadian government's intervention in the lives of Indigenous people has caused them to suffer from alcohol consumption, drug use, and poor food management. It was not an accident, but a deliberate choice that resulted in intergenerational trauma affecting their physical and mental health. Pascal shared a story about how immigrant families were starving and freezing, but Indigenous nature helped them survive by teaching them how to farm. However, the Indigenous people were forced to side with the British to fight the French and Spanish, resulting in the loss of their land, which is now a commodity that can be sold. Today, Indigenous people are conditioned to stay inside and are denied access to gathering and foraging, leading to a loss of culture and spiritual connection to the land. The residential school system, which separated Indigenous children from their parents and land, led to a truth and reconciliation diet where children worked on school farms but were not allowed to eat the food, resulting in malnutrition and chronic diseases. Pascal questioned if it is possible to reprogram our bodies to not have chronic diseases and suggested the use of ancient medicines to maintain good health. The podcast also highlighted the issue of mental health stigma in Indigenous communities, which is exacerbated by the social aspects that white people see in Indigenous people, such as domestic violence, drug abuse, alcoholism, and gambling. Pascal spoke about the importance of a sustainable program to get kids onto the land to foster their interest in culture and the need for parents to be involved. Indigenous people are part of the land, and the land is part of them, but the spiritual loss has led to an autonomic economy that is split into unfarmable land, affecting their drinking water. Overall, the podcast highlighted the interconnectedness of intellectual, physical, mental, and emotional health, and how the wellbeing of Indigenous communities in Canada is essential for all living beings and the land. Pascal's emotional testimony left a lasting impact on listeners, calling for immediate action to address the long-standing issues affecting Indigenous people in Canada. Find Dr.Alison Pascal at:LinkedIn: https://bit.ly/3TYHubVWebsite: www.SLCC.caFacebook: @SLCCWhistler, @SistersInSpiritVigil2015, @Alison.PascalInstagram: @alison.pascal Discussed on the PODCAST:Unreserved Podcast: The dark history of Canada’s Food Guide: How experiments on Indigenous children shaped nutrition policy with Dr.

    Ep 122 Healing Trauma and Decolonizing Mental Health: Reconnecting with Traditional Ways of Knowing with Dr. Marie Mihalicz

    Ep 122 Healing Trauma and Decolonizing Mental Health: Reconnecting with Traditional Ways of Knowing with Dr. Marie Mihalicz

    Dr. Marie Mihalicz is a respected researcher, consultant, and founder of White Lightning Consulting, an organization committed to community-based healing and wellness retreats. She completed her Ph.D. at Royal Roads University, where her dissertation focused on Indigenous methods of healing and their potential for addressing the high rates of suicide and mental health issues in northern Saskatchewan communities. Her research findings have been used to influence policy change, with the aim of supporting sustainable, culturally relevant mental health services for Indigenous youth and families. Dr. Mihalicz and her team at White Lightning Consulting offer evidence-based healing and education programs that combine Western science and Indigenous healing methods. Through their collaborative community-based approach, they aim to empower Indigenous youth and families to pick up their knowledge bundles in today's world, strengthening and mobilizing community processes from the inside-out. In the face of the challenges posed by the pandemic and the complex intergenerational trauma experienced by Indigenous communities, Dr. Mihalicz and her team continue to work towards enhancing sustainable counseling supports and delivering effective leadership training workshops. In this 8th podcast of a nine part series, Marie Mihalicz discusses the importance of decolonizing trauma and healing the soul. She highlights how traditional ways of knowing are not recognized, and there are gaps in the mental health system that need to be addressed. Mihalicz emphasizes that trauma is passed down through blood, but so is healing, and it is essential to understand the historical links to trauma. She suggests that healing is in our DNA and that the delivery of mental health needs to change to include outdoor therapy, such as art therapy, breathwork, and hands-on ceremonies. Mihalicz believes that the biggest barriers to healing are the spiritual loss and the fact that traditional healing methods are not recognized by the current system. She emphasizes the need for protocols and boundaries around ceremonies, as well as space to sit down and talk about how we are doing. Mihalicz advocates for the use of traditional Indigenous practices in mental health treatment, such as prescribing ceremonies and mentorship through ceremony. She encourages people to learn about their history, stories, and intergenerational trauma, to talk about it and create safe spaces to heal. Finally, Mihalicz emphasizes that healing starts with the self, and one needs to heal oneself first before helping others. Find Dr Marie Milalicz at:Website: www.whitelightningconsulting.comContact: WhiteLightening4Me@gmail.comFacebook: @Marie.MihaliczInstagram: @MarieMihaliczPhD Paper: https://bit.ly/40WcVWz Discussed on the PODCAST:Dopesick - https://bit.ly/40YkDQ0 (https://bit.ly/40YkDQ0)Healing the Soul Wound, Eduardo Durran - https://a.co/d/9vjnxgODr. Stephen Britton of Ile-a La-Crosse-St. Joseph’s Hospital - http://bit.ly/3nM2uXqPure Fe - https://purafe.com/Rumble Documentary - www.rumblethemovie.com Learn More: Ready to launch your career as a certified Metabolic Nutrition & Detox Coach?

Amazing!

Wonderful podcast! I love Nicolette’s enthusiasm, and she makes me want to eat healthy, and be healthy. Her passion is infectious, and I will definitely be listening from now on!

A bit phony

Preaching the ills of colonialism and capitalism but practicing it at a very high level. Will sell you $100 of vegetables for $500+. I’m sure our indigenous friends and people of color can afford that. If she had taken a little vacation down to the south and southwest of the United States and spent time with the people she claims to be standing up for she would know that the traditional diets down there (soul food and Mexican/Tex Mex are high in carbs, fried and greasy and high in sodium amongst other things. That’s why diabetes is high not because of oppression. She Has taken psychedelics probably less than ten times and speaks like an authority on it after originally being against it. Comes off as an egomaniac and psychedelic narcissist. Psychedelics should have the opposite effect, but they’re not for everyone.
