    Ep 41: Malkie Hirsch: Kiss The Kosher Cook Food Blogger turned Inspirational author not by choice

    Ep 41: Malkie Hirsch: Kiss The Kosher Cook Food Blogger turned Inspirational author not by choice

    In today's episode of Get Intuit with Gila, I had the honor and privelahe of intervewiing Malkie Hirsch of KissTheKoshercook. I actually got to meet Malkie last year when we were interviewed on the same day by Naomi Nachman. Many times, when you meet someone in person who you kind of "know" from Instagram, you are surprised that they aren't as nice as they seem. Honestly, I loved Malkie when I met her. She is so sweet, kind and easy to talk to. Malkie is a talented cook who shares a lot of whats goes on in her day to day life on her platform. Just about 1.5 years ago, Malkie's life completely changed when her husband Moshe, suddenly died. This is a challenge that no one should ever know, but as Malkie and I discussed in this episode, she has chosen to take this horrible pain and make meaning with it (as I said in the interview, check out the book By David Kessler and Elisabeth Kubler Ross https://grief.com/books-by-david-kessler/on-grief-and-grieving-elisabeth-kubler-rosss-david-kessler/). Malkie has been given a hardship that she never would have asked for, but is using this deep pain to help others. I personally suffered my own sudden loss, 2 years ago when my mother died very suddenly. Everyday, since that day, I have felt swallowed in a cloud of grief, pain, hopelessness, despair and confusion. When I started reading Malkie's articles, I had some semblance of hope, an anchor, and space and place to carry my pain with me. Malkie has an incredible way with her written words and she is a huge source of inspiration and hope for me and for so many others. A bit more about Malkie: Malkie Hirsch is a native of the Five Towns, hailing from Lawrence and moved to Woodmere after marrying her husband Moshe and is currently raising her kids (Dovid, Nison, Yosef, Gavriel and Rosie) on Barnard ave. She started working in marketing, running the hair and makeup division at an artists agency, and currently works as a real estate broker in addition to being a food blogger at the popular Instagram page “kiss the kosher cook”. She has a Facebook page of the same name and a food sharing WhatsApp page called “kiss the kosher queens.” Last year, after the sudden and tragic death of her 40 year old husband, she took to writing about her journey as a single mother to 5 kids (ages 11-1 1/2) on her page as well as The Five Towns Jewish Times publication on a weekly basis, where it’s been a very therapeutic process and has also inspired many that have reached out to share their varied stories.

    EP:40: Rivka Breuer, RDN and Certified Diabetes Educator- No More Shame, No More Extremes

    EP:40: Rivka Breuer, RDN and Certified Diabetes Educator- No More Shame, No More Extremes

    In todays episode of Get INTUIT with Gila, I sit down to speak with Rivka Breuer. I felt like I had to have Rivka on this show because besides for her being an amazing Registered Dietitian, she is also a Certified Diabetes Educator. Now, this is a very much needed specialty in the field. But besides for that, Rivka's approach is unique because she understands that this is an individualized plan of care for each and every client. We cannot use scare tactics or shame when trying to help someone  manage their diagnoses of diabetes. This is not something YOU caused. This is not something to be ashamed of. So much of our physical and mental health has to do with genetics and we have to be aware of this.

    Diet culture shames people into changing their body. Look how that has worked. It hasn't. We need to start giving people the medical care that they need, irrelevant to their weight. 

    If you are struggling with diabetes or know someone that is, I think this episode will really enlighten you. 

    A bit about our interview: To see the full transcription of this episode, please visit my website www.gilaglassberg.com 

    Rivka has been a dietitian for 20 years. She is also a certified diabetic educator which means she specializes in helping clients who have diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder where the pancreas doesn't have the ability to make insulin. The management for type 1 diabetes is much more controlled and may include insulin shots. With type 2 diabetes and prediabetes, there’s still some activity left in the pancreas but with a resistance to insulin. If you can stop it early on, you’re ahead of the game and you just have to focus on making lifestyle changes. Most of her clients have type 2 diabetes. She has a private practice based in Cedarhurst, but it is all virtual now. She realized that virtual sessions are very productive with regard to nutrition. Clients are in their own comfort zone so they feel like they can open up a lot more. She works in a nursing home and a doctor’s office on the side seeing patients with diabetes.





    A bit about Rivka:

    Rivka received her Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Illinois in Chicago and completed the coordinated program internship there as well. She is currently based in Long Island, NY, where for over 20 years, she has been providing nutrition and wellness counseling as a Registered Dietitian to patient groups and individuals  in long term and primary care settings, including private practice. As a Certified Diabetic Educator Rivka is uniquely qualified to empower people with Diabetes by gently guiding them with the necessary tools to improve their health and quality of life. She also specializes in Prediabetes, Heart Disease, and Metabolic Syndrome.

    EP.38: Somatic Therapy with Basya Pessin - We Only Have One Body In This Life - It Is The Home For Our Soul

    EP.38: Somatic Therapy with Basya Pessin - We Only Have One Body In This Life - It Is The Home For Our Soul

    In today's session of Get INTUIT with Gila, I sit down to talk to Basya Pessin.

    We explore how so much of what we experience throughout our lives is in our body. We only have one body in this life and it is the home for our soul. 

    The body gives us signals all throughout our lives. This is connected to Intuitive Eating because we feel our hunger/fullness in our bodies but diet culture turns off those cues. 

    Our emotions also happen in our body and we need the time and space to feel them and process them. 



    About Basya:

    Basya Pessin is a Psychotherapist licensed as a Clinical Social Worker. She has been practicing for close to a decade. She sees women, young adults, and teens in her private practice and teaches social work students. She guides clients to build self awareness and discover how their past conditioning contributes to their current struggles and triggers. Through this work, clients can unlearn ways of coping that are no longer serving them and live more mindfully and intentionally. She believes that therapy and healing should be accessible to all humans. Working on emotional health is a privilege that everyone should enjoy and should never be considered shameful.

    EP.37: I was Supposed to Have a Baby with Aimee Baron, MD

    EP.37: I was Supposed to Have a Baby with Aimee Baron, MD

    In today's Episode of Get Intuit with Gila, I sit down with Aimee Baron.

    Aimee Baron MD, FAAP, is the founder and executive director of I Was Supposed to Have a Baby, a nonprofit organization that utilizes social media to support Jewish individuals and families as they are struggling to have a child.  It provides a warm and nurturing space for those going through infertility, pregnancy loss, infant loss, surrogacy or adoption, in addition to connecting those families to resources in the Jewish community at large.

    Dr. Baron was formerly the Director of Innovation and Growth at NechamaComfort, and has also worked as an Attending Pediatrician in the Newborn Nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital before taking a leave of absence after her third miscarriage.


    We address some extremely important, heavy topics having to do with pregnancy and infant loss. We acknowledge that there is so much pain around this topic and there is also a lot of misunderstanding. People who are already suffering do not needed the added pain of suffering alone. 



    We need to discuss our pain with other people who get it and can support us through it. We must give ourselves permission to grieve in the way that feels right to us. All feelings are welcome and sometimes, just staying in bed is what we need to do to get through the day.



    Aimee explains that this organization that she created is the organization she needed when she was in the thick of her pain. Now, thank G-d, that period is behind her, but she has created a space for the women in our community who are suffering and need support. 



    I strongly believe, that in all the darks parts of our lives, we must get the support that we need. Self care isn't a luxury, it is part of surviving and getting to the other side of the pain. 



    Aimee's information is listed below. Please reach out to her for anything you need related to this topic. She is an incredible person and she has devoted her life to helping women in our community who are struggling.

    EP.36 - "You can't have a little bit of an eating disorder," with Naomi Shulman

    EP.36 - "You can't have a little bit of an eating disorder," with Naomi Shulman

    In today’s episode of Get Intuit with Gila, I  speak with Naomi Shulman. 

    Naomi is a frum women who is open about her past struggle with a severe eating disorder as well as the mental health diagnoses of bipolar disorder. She has started an organization with Zahava List - Chazkeinu. This is a beautiful, amazing, very much needed organization for the frum female world. This organization is a support for anyone who is struggling or has a family member struggling with mental illness.

    Naomi has written a book "One Life" on the topic of her eating disorder and her recovery. We discussed at length in this episode her specific story and how she,  Baruch Hashem, has fully recovered. 

    I personally think this episode can be useful for anyone. If you are struggling with an eating disorder, you will feel heard and validated. You will also know that it is always okay and advisable to seek help. If you are a family member or a friend who is struggling along side of someone with an eating disorder, you will gain insight into the mind of someone struggling. If you are someone who lives in the world and is constantly bombarded with diet culture messages, this will give you insight into how dangerous, destructive and harmful this can be and to keep far away from it even though it seems like the normal thing to do.

    Naomi is also open about her diagnoses of bipolar disorder and she shares so eloquently that she is open about this struggle because she did not choose this nor does she want this, but this is what she has been given and there is no shame in it. Just like there is no shame about walking around with a broken arm, we must work on breaking the stigma around mental health. 

    Her work is of utmost importance and I want to help spread the word on these beautiful resources she has given to the world, not despite her challenges but because of them. She discusses how there is a silver lining to her illness and she has really taken what Hashem has given her and used it for such positive in this world. I am in awe of this women and I can't wait for you to hear our honest, raw, open, enlightening conversation.
