    A Teen's Take on Nutrition - Mom and Son Chat Family Wellness

    A Teen's Take on Nutrition - Mom and Son Chat Family Wellness

    I can't believe I did this.  Clearly, I was feeling pretty gutsy and a little curious! I decided to have my son on the podcast!

    Every day I'm having discussions with moms about their health concerns and the conversation always shifts to their kids. As moms we want our kids to be healthy and it all feels so overwhelming. How do we teach our kids about nutrition and not be overbearing? How do we empower them to make good food choices? Well, you always hear me, why not hear from one of my kids? For the podcast, I got a little brave and decided to invite my 14-year-old son, JD to join me and talk about food and nutrition for healthy families. I wanted you to hear his perspective!

    In this podcast we talk about...


    Lunch Time, DIY Meal Prepping for Teens
    How to Talk to your Kids About Nutrition
    Nutrition for Athletes
    Importance of Hydration
    Rest and Recovery for Athletes
    Nutrition Strategies for Healthy Families

    All this and more with some funny stories thrown in.  I didn't know how this convo would go.  He is a 14-year-old boy after all! But I was so pleased to see that maybe he was listening all those times when I thought he wasn't.

    Our family is a work in progress. We do not have it all figured out. You know you try to impress healthy habits on your kids. But it’s not easy! There’s a lot of factors at play. But it was interesting listening to my son, there are some things that stuck! YAYY!

    Mama it really is up to you to teach your kids about nutrition!

    But the reality is you are already busy and overwhelmed. The stress is unrelenting and you are getting knocked down every day. Ready for the strategies to help you get back up? To help you become Resilient? I have something just for you. The Resilient Mom Masterclass - a free webinar to help you Master your Mindset, Metabolism and Mojo.

    This Masterclass is on September 8th at 8pm Central. You must register so I can email you a link. You can register by going to bit.ly/ihhmasterclass

    This is for you if you feel like you have lost yourself taking care of everyone else. It’s for you if you feel trapped in a body working against you. It's for you if you feel guilty about your health and your family’s health. And it’s for you if you just struggle with body, mind and soul disconnection. In this class you will learn the 4 key pillars to taking control of your Mindset, Metabolism and Mojo...Reconnect, Rewire, Re-energize and Re-ignite.

    *Re-connect your body, mind and soul by making sure your soul is nourished first.

    *Re-wire your brain by looking at your mindset, habits and how you handle stress and emotion.

    *Re-energize your body by detoxifying and ensuring that your body is working efficiently.

    *Re-ignite your metabolism and drive for life by addressing root issues.

    Again, that free masterclass is on September 8th, at 8pm Central and you have to register. Complete your registration at bit.ly/ihhmasterclass. You will immediately receive an email from me with the Zoom webinar link. Be sure and check your junk folder if you don't see that email.

    Hope you enjoy the podcast! I'll see you Wednesday night at the Masterclass! Don't forget to REGISTER!

    How to Boost Your Family's Immunity with Nutritionist Elyse Wagner

    How to Boost Your Family's Immunity with Nutritionist Elyse Wagner

    You are sick of the news and sick of social media. But the reality is you don’t want to get SICK! You want to protect your health and you want to make sure you are doing all you can to protect your family’s health. It’s so overwhelming. How can you boost your family’s immune system? Are there some essential basics that need to be considered? You better believe it!

    And that is what we are talking about today on the Healthy Harmony podcast. Now, I see you cringing a little. You are wondering if I’m going to talk about the current virus or the drama and debate that is taking place. Nope! Not at all. That’s not what you need! You need to be encouraged and empowered and that is why I secured a special guest to do just that!

    Elyse Wagner has her own story of health challenges starting as a 13 year old child when she was nicknamed "obese Elyse."  She and her mom (her biggest advocate) found her the help she needed and she turned the struggle into a desire to help others.  Elyse is a nutritionist and a mental health counselor.  She was introduced to Functional Medicine while in graduate school when she was diagnosed with Celiac disease.  She made the empowering decision to become the CEO of her own health and found healing in a "food as medicine" approach.

    Elyse Wagner is the co-founder and Chief Wellness Officer of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.  She is a wife and mom and continues to be the CEO of her health and her family's health.

    Join Elyse and I as we dig into the crucial topic of immunity.  You will love this back to basics approach as we discuss sleep, food as medicine, stress and supplementation.  This podcast will leave you empowered to take control of you and your family's health and be confident that you are arming your immune system at a critical time.

    Real quick...

    If you are not a part of the FB group. You are missing out. We are in the middle of a 20 day Immune series. It’s not too late for you to join us. You can access that FB group by going to bit.ly/FMwomenswellness .

    Important Note...

    In the beginning of this podcast, you will hear Elyse share her powerful story and how a Functional Medicine doctor helped her uncover an autoimmune disease and encouraged her to step into her own health. You will also hear how overwhelmed she felt, and she wished she had a guide, an advocate a cheerleader to help her implement the suggestions from her Functional Medicine practitioner. I know many of you will relate to this, you need someone in your corner, someone to help you make the shift from knowing what to do to actually doing it. So, who can help you? My friend, this is what I do every single day. I want to help you overcome the overwhelm. I see all my clients virtually. And have 1-hour sessions available. Why don’t you book a session and get the help you have been searching for?  Here's the link https://healthyharmony.thrivecart.com/wellness-warrior-power-hour/

    You can connect with Elyse Wagner on social media @functionalmedcoach or @elysewagner

    The Soul Needs More - Stop Living in Captivity and Walk in Freedom!

    The Soul Needs More - Stop Living in Captivity and Walk in Freedom!

    You feel it. The stress, overwhelm, anxiety. Your soul is burdened. It needs more. But we live in a world gone mad. How do you maintain your sanity and have an impact in the middle of the mess? Today I want to prepare you for battle. To expose you to areas of captivity so you don’t become a prisoner. I want to give you the keys to nourish your soul and live in freedom.

    I have something different for you today on the Healthy Harmony podcast.  I was asked to do a closing keynote address for the Early Childhood Christian Network.  The room was filled with over 500 preschool teachers and directors.  Many of them told me through their tears that this talk resonated with them.  So, I've repurposed it here for you.  My prayer is that it encourages you just like it encouraged them last week.

    Here's the reality...you can do all the right things.  Prepare clean, organic, healthy meals that are Pinterest and Insta worthy, have a solid workout routine, drink your water, read motivational books…but if your soul is not nourished you will never be fulfilled. You will never be truly healthy and live in freedom. Ever.

    So, what is holding you back?  Have you considered what might be keeping you captive?

    In this talk, I outline the four areas of captivity.  These areas of captivity are demonstrated with baggage, headphones, ball and chain and a mask. These areas include your past mistakes, guilt, shame, physical health, mental/emotional health, spiritual health, toxic thoughts, lies from the enemy and how we hide all of our struggles.  And then I outline the 5 "R" action plan to walk in freedom.  Be empowered as you learn about the vital importance of Reflect, Reject, Rally, Realign and Restore.  It's time to look at what is most important in self-care and that is soul-care my friend!

    Several links I want to make sure you have...
