    Themes: Relationships, Marriage, Divorce, Religion, Masculinity, Intuition, Health



    Summary:

    I met today's guests through my partnership with Organifi and upon hearing their story, I knew I had to have them on the podcast to share it with you!

    Chase + Mimi were childhood sweethearts and married in their early 20’s. After 3 years they actually separated and divorced, never thinking they would see each other again. They both hit physical, emotional, mental and spiritual rock bottom in 2017-18. Call it Source, the universe or divine intervention — after 3 years of intense self development and personal epiphanies, their new lives crossed paths organically and six months later Mimi was officially moving in with Chase to start 'Part 2’ of their relationship. Now Chase + Mimi host The Medicin Podcast and are passionate about helping people proactively create deep, healthy, passionate partnership supported by healthy + conscious lifestyles.



    Discover:
    Chase and Mimi's journey from high school sweethearts to married couple, to divorced for three years and back together again
    How Chase and Mimi's religious upbringing influenced their idea of how a marriage "should" look an ultimately contributed to their split

    The problem with having expectations whether they be in relationships, with health or at work

    The Attachment Theory & Nervous System Connection with Sarah Baldwin

    The Attachment Theory & Nervous System Connection with Sarah Baldwin

    Themes: Relationships, Attachment Theory, Polyvagal Theory



    Summary:

    I know you're going to be pumped about today's guest because her last appearance on the podcast was one of my most listened to episodes ever! Back by popular demand is Sarah Baldwin, a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and Trauma Coach trained in Polyvagal interventions and on the training team at the Polyvagal Institute.

    In Sarah's previous episode, she brilliantly broke down Polyvagal theory (i.e. how the autonomic nervous system works) and briefly touched on the intersection of Polyvagal theory and attachment theory. Today, Sarah's back to dive deeper into how these two theories work together subconsciously to inform the way we relate to and connect with others.



    Discover:
    How a lack of a secure attachment with our primary childhood caregivers results in the development of insecure attachment styles in order to cope and find safety
    How the Autonomic Nervous System works and becomes dysregulated as a brilliant and beautiful way to self protect
    The relationship between who you choose as a partner as an adult and how you were related to in your childhood experiences
    Steps to regulate your nervous system and create secure attachment within your adult relationships

    Clitoral Advocacy with Jessica Pin

    Clitoral Advocacy with Jessica Pin

    Themes: Clitoral Anatomy, Cosmetic Genital Procedures, Medical Misinformation

     

    Summary:

    Despite labiaplasty being one of the fastest-growing medical procedures in the past two decades, detailed clitoral anatomy has been largely missing from medical literature and curricula. Horrifying, right? My guest today is Jessica Pin, who is an advocate for the correction of medical misinformation about vulvas after experiencing a labiaplasty gone wrong at the age of 18.

    Jessica has since launched into advocacy and has successfully had eight major medical textbooks update their content, with 15 more considering to future updates. She has also published a cadaveric study with plastic surgeons, convinced OB/GYNs to publish a cadaveric study, and effected changes in OB/GYN and plastic surgery board certification, standardized consent forms, and residency curricula. She holds a degree in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis. 

     

    Discover:
    Jessica's story of a botched labiaplasty at 18 years old and being gaslit and dismissed by medical professionals
    How this experience led her to become an advocate for the inclusion of detailed clitoral anatomy in medical literature and curricula
    Why clitoral anatomy isn't covered in medical literature
    The surprising lack of training standards for female cosmetic genital surgeries
    The biggest misconceptions in female anatomy
