    Finding softness during times of stress

    Finding softness during times of stress

    When short-term stressors become long-term stressors our brains and bodies go into a chronic state of sympathetic nervous system activation also known as fight, flight, freeze, and fawn. This becomes our new homeostasis and getting out of this can become quite uncomfortable because this state becomes so familiar and almost comfortable for many of us. Sometimes we may not even realize it because it has become our normal.

    In this conversation, Dr. Kristy Lewis and Pamyna Bourgeois will discuss the following:


    What happens when short-term stressors become long-term stressors
    The difference between how stress impacts the body vs. the mind/emotion
    How our stress responses have changed over time
    How to live alongside long-term stress
    How this is specifically showing up for women in caregiver roles, aka moms
    How to find relief amounts all this stress

    We are still talking about stress

    We are still talking about stress

    Stress is a normal human reaction that happens to everyone. Without it, we ultimately would not be able to survive in our environment. It allows us to detect danger and perform the appropriate response to save ourselves. But what happens when it goes too long? Our evolutionary adaptation has not caught up to the stressors of modern civilization. This can have a profound effect on us physically and mentally.

    Dr. Kristy, ND, and Dr. Viinberg, ND, speak about the consequences of unmanaged stress, share some of their personal experiences, and go over simple tips to break the endless cycle. 

    You don't want to miss this one!

    How to deal with fatigue, part one: physical support

    It's no secret that everyone's feeling generalized fatigue these days. It seems like significant catastrophic events keep coming at us, making our tolerance for the little stressors unbearable. 



    Being in this "fight, flight, or freeze" state can significantly impact our mental/emotional and physical well-being. 



    In this episode, Dr. Kristy and Dr. Rachelle dive deep into what to look out for and how to improve our energy while increasing resilience.

    The Perimenopause women during the Pandemic

    The Perimenopause women during the Pandemic

    It's not your imagination.  You are more reactive!

    Over these past few years, the external stressors and situational challenges have impacted your hormone health.  When your body is already experiencing internal uncertainty, the pandemic was especially difficult for peri-menopausal women.

    Full disclosure, this episode does not offer the magic solution; however, it does validate what has been going on in your body that may be contributing to the aggravation of peri-menopause symptoms.

    My first intention with this solo recording is to affirm the experience and allow you to bring an understanding and language to what you have been suffering with.

    This short and sweet episode is dedicated to all the peri-menopausal women impacted by the pandemic.  You are not alone!

    Where we fit in your healthcare

    Where we fit in your healthcare

    In this episode, Dr. Rachelle and I discuss the therapeutic order and how Naturopathic doctors fit into the overall health care model.

    We align in our gratitude and appreciation for conventional doctors and discuss the importance of modern medicine in screening for disease and managing acute and chronic conditions. 

    During this episode, we break down the role that Naturopathic doctors play in the medical system and educate on the time and place for Naturopathic protocols.

    We share our vision for a system where Naturopathic and Conventional medicine integrate to support all aspects of health. 

    Intending to generate awareness and empowerment, our passion for this topic shines through in this episode.
