    Natural Anti-aging & Why Fat is not a Dirty Word with Dr. Cori Stern

    Natural Anti-aging & Why Fat is not a Dirty Word with Dr. Cori Stern

    That word, aging. It makes me think of the line from the movie Steel Magnolias where Truvy played by Dolly Parton says, "Time marches on and sooner or later you realize it is marching right across your face!"

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have some secrets to delay the inevitable time marching on? Some insight for you to look your best and feel your best even as these years go by? Well, my friend. That’s what we are talking about today. We are joined by expert Dr. Cori Stern to discuss natural anti-aging and how nutrition plays a key role in helping you stay healthy, prevent disease and yes, look younger!

    We take a deep dive into fats and why fat is not a dirty word. You are going to hear about a vitamin that you have probably never heard of, Vitamin F, found in healthy fats that can help you prevent sunburn. And yes, we even talk about the controversy surrounding cholesterol and fat consumption and the dangers of using a statin. Straight talk, no hidden agenda and it’s all about natural anti-aging, today on the Healthy Harmony podcast.

    Our guest today is Dr. Cori Stern. Dr. Stern is a natural health expert who is challenging conventional wisdom by showing people how the food, water, air, medications and everyday products they use are potentially poisoning them.  She is a triple award-winning Chiropractor who is recognized by her peers as outstanding in the field of nutrition.  You can learn more about Dr. Stern at www.drcoristern.com and check out her educational videos on her YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/wpj8motkMAM

    Weight Loss, Resolutions and Scams - Why it Won't Work!

    Weight Loss, Resolutions and Scams - Why it Won't Work!

    Well, it's the New Year.  2023.  Everywhere you turn, you are being hit with these messages...

    Beat the Bulge!! New Year, New You! Lose Weight, Feel Great!

    Don’t do it. Please don’t fall prey to all the weight loss/get healthy schemes that you are being bombarded with. It happens every single year. They get you feeling guilty and ashamed so you will fall for whatever quick fix, pill, supplement, diet that they are pushing.

    And I know what you are thinking, you are thinking but Jennifer, I need to lose weight. That will solve all my problems and these companies seem to really care.

    Listen up sister, they do not care. All they care about is the money. The Diet and Weight Loss Industry is worth 3.8 billion dollars. 3.8 BILLION DOLLARS!!

    Today we are talking about why those New Year’s resolutions won’t work, what makes weight loss complicated and the one simple thing you can do in January to set yourself up for health success for the rest of the year.

    Here’s the reality. I know what you are faced with, and I want to be your resource.  You are bombarded by confusing and conflicting messages. It really is hard to know who to trust or where to turn! Here’s the two options I’m offering to help you...

    #1 - You have a health question? Just ask!  Send me a private message on Facebook on Insta @inspirehealthyharmony, you can also email me jennifer@inspirehealthyharmony.com

    # 2 - Book a 15 min discovery call. Here’s the thing, during a discovery call, I’m not trying to sell you on anything. In fact, between my work with Dr. Beard, seeing clients in my private practice and this podcast, I have very little room in my coaching schedule. I have a little but not much. During our call, we can chat about what’s going on with you and what action steps you are looking to take.  I'll answer any questions you have. If you are interested, we can certainly talk about what coaching looks like and if we are a good fit to work together.  Book your call here https://calendly.com/coachjennpickett/15min_discovery_call?month=2023-01

    WARNING...in this podcast I'm sounding off about some of the quacks and scams out there.  It is January and you are being bombarded.  So, you need to hear this truth!!

The onslaught of information as you try to be your own best advocate. You know your body is toxic, you know your hormones are imbalanced but what to do?  This is why I’m excited to present a 2-part series with Dr. Koz where we are going to give you the nitty gritty of how to balance your hormones and detox.

    Is Stress causing your Weight Gain?

    Is Stress causing your Weight Gain?

    If I started this podcast by saying we are going to talk about stress, half of you would roll your eyes and turn it off. But as soon as I say the words stress causes you to gain weight. You are thinking... "oh crap, I need to listen to this!"

    We have started the stress season, oh excuse me, I mean the holiday season, the joyous holiday season! Which happens to be the season where most of us get sick, gain weight and are so stressed out we can’t see straight! All while trying to keep up appearances that all is well, just holly and jolly and jingle bells. Just me? Okay, carry on then.

    There are some facts that you need to understand when it comes to the disastrous effects that stress has on your health. This is the hot topic we are tackling today on the Healthy Harmony podcast.  Is stress causing you to gain weight?!  Listen as I unpack what stress does to the body and how this is the #1 obstacle that is causing weight gain in my clients.

    Get ready for some straight talk as I introduce you to a little stress hormone called Cortisol and attempt to snap you out of denial.

    Yes, stress is dramatically affecting your weight and your health and let me tell you friend...you need to hear this!

    We have got to do something different.  And it starts here.  It starts now by simply being mindful and aware.  I wouldn't be a good friend and advocate for you if I didn't tell it to you straight.  I can't wait to hear your thoughts after this podcast.  Be sure and join the discussion over on our FB page Functional Medicine for Weight Loss - Body, Mind, Soul Wellness for Women.  Click here https://bit.ly/FMwomenswellness

    Before you go, don't forget I have a special gift for you!

    It’s the Holiday Survival Guide. I put this together just for you so you are equipped to beat stress, combat cravings and stay joyful this holiday season. And here’s the deal, it’s not just a holiday survival guide, I’ve included a list of my favorite things!! Yay!!! This list includes those health-related items that I absolutely ADORE that you can purchase as a gift for yourself or give a big ole hint to your spouse or you can purchase for someone else.  Click here to grab that Holiday Survival Guide and Fav Things list!
