    Health Made Simple Lesson Two: The Power Of The Mind

    Health Made Simple Lesson Two: The Power Of The Mind

    If you’re confused, you’re not alone. The health space has been notorious for overwhelm, and it’s working in their favor. Complexity likes to keep you stuck in the place of wanting health but not knowing how to move forward. If we’re not careful, complexity will crush any form of growth. I’ve always had a hard time believing health was as difficult as we made it. Growing up, I watched countless women I love give up their life to a diet promising them a better life, only to leave empty-handed. How could people work so diligently and faithfully and still not accomplish it?
    We had to be missing something, and I would make it my life mission to figure it out.
    Eventually, I found that we missed health, not because it wasn’t possible, but because we were running after it in the wrong direction. Health is not an external equation or system. Health is in you – it’s in all of us. Learning how to live out of health is the secret you’ve been looking for and the answer to doing what you know you should. It makes health simple. But you have to avoid these five health mistakes to make it simple.
    Inside Health Made Simple, I teach you how to achieve health for life. It’s not a fancy system but a new approach that is personal and relatable, allowing you to experience health today. If you want a sneak peek at what you’ll learn inside, check out lessons one and two right here!
    In this episode you'll get a preview of the second lesson in this class, The Power Of The Mind. Be sure to check out episode 252 for lesson one.

    How To Do A Health Reset

    How To Do A Health Reset

    Do you feel the urge to do something different, clean things up, and feel energized? If you're feeling sluggish, a quick health reset even for one day can rebalance your body creating space for you to feel well. Let me show you how to do it. 

    Most of us get to this place, feeling heavy after winter and wanting to toss stuff to lighten the load. It's where 'spring cleaning' got its name, and just like our homes, our body's natural tendency is to do the same. 

    But it's not just a mental desire. It's a biological one. 

    Your body undergoes a massive biological change, shifting nearly one-quarter of its DNA to prime for the warmer months of summer. This means what your body needs are going to change as well. During this transition, you'll probably notice a craving for a health reset, which I define as nothing more than creating space for your body to heal by opening up energy flow.

    Energy is the most vital life force in the body. I like to think of it as a nutrient. I know we rarely talk about it like we do other nutrients such as vitamin D or C, but it's vital to our health. Without enough energy, your body shifts its biological response to store, hoard, and conserve energy rather than open up to use it. Everything in your body works based on energy flow and is the focus of a productive health reset. 

    Inside this podcast, I dive into how to create a health reset by understanding why you need it. We also talk about building an anti-fragile life on health that is unshakable to life—allowing you to live healthy no matter where life takes you.

    What is Metabolic Eating? Every Detail You Need

    What is Metabolic Eating? Every Detail You Need

    What is the metabolic diet? Is it right for you? Like most things, it depends on what your body needs. But more than a diet, the pro-metabolic eating lifestyle is designed to support metabolic health, the topic of this post.
    If you haven’t heard of metabolic eating, which some call pro-metabolic eating, you will soon. It stands out against the traditional diets as a means of working with your body rather than working to change your body, a subtle but powerful difference.
    The traditional model of health supports the idea that if you micromanage what you consume and how you live, your body will change in direct relation to what you do. This idea has led people to cut calories and eliminate entire macronutrients from their diets, hoping to see results that correspond.
    But the new model is founded on how your body responds—shifting the focus of health from external things to how your body responds.
    The pro metabolic eating plan focuses on nourishing your body based on what it needs. It is an approach that works with your metabolism, knowing how to support it moving your body from surviving to thriving.
    Inside this podcast, I interview metabolic eating expert Fallon Danae to hear her story of losing her health and using the pro metabolic plan to regain health and what that looks like inside our lives.

Jesus therapy is spot on!

Alexa thank you so much for putting this out there. What a blessing! I’ve been listening to your podcasts and started this Jesus therapy (eps 237) today and was so very blessed and encouraged by it. I pray that I can apply it all to my WHOLE life (mind, soul and body) to create the change I need in my life.

My go-to wellness podcast

Alexa breaks down health and wellness into understandable, easy-to-follow tips and systems that have really changed what I thought I knew about health and diet.

Helpful and fun!

Alexa shares so much helpful health information, even if it goes against trend. I love her heart and that she wants us to benefit from true health- not just to experience a quick benefit from whatever the popular health fad is at the time. I’ve learned so much about health in general, but most of all, I’ve learned how to take charge of my own health.
