    How to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Grooming, with Feather Berkower

    How to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Grooming, with Feather Berkower

    Our guest today is Feather Berkower, a licensed clinical social worker with a Master’s of Social Welfare from UC Berkeley. She has been a leader in child sexual abuse prevention since 1985 and has educated nearly one-hundred fifty thousand schoolchildren, parents and youth professionals. Her well-regarded workshop, Parenting Safe Children, empowers adults to keep children safe from sexual assault. Feather co-authored Off Limits, a parenting book that will change the way you think about keeping children safe. It is available on her website at parentingsafechildren.com
    Sexual abuse of children is a difficult topic to discuss, but that is why these conversations need to take place. The manipulative behaviors perpetrators use to set children up for sexual abuse are designed to be subtle and often appear innocent. As parents, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our children. What we, many parents, don’t know or realize, is that in these unsettling situations, the perpetrators are also working the parents. Abusers will often groom a family, and not just a child.

    Light Therapy for Detoxification, Anti-Aging, & Stem Cell Regeneration with Dr. Caroline Williams

    Light Therapy for Detoxification, Anti-Aging, & Stem Cell Regeneration with Dr. Caroline Williams

    Welcome to Real Health Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.
    This week on the Real Health Conversations Podcast Holly chats with guest Dr. Caroline of Native Sun Nutrition & Functional Medicine Center
    Dr. Caroline Williams is a Chiropractic Physician and owner of Native Sun Nutrition & Functional Medicine Center in Las Vegas.  Since 2001 she has been working with patients holistically to determine the cause of dysfunction whether it be physical, mental, emotional, or chemical.
    Unlike supplements, photo-biomodulation (PBM), also known as phototherapy, helps the body repair cells and tissue by using a light source of a specific wavelength. This type of therapy has excellent efficacy in wound healing and pain relief. Dr. Caroline and I specifically talk about stem cells and glutathione in terms of light therapy. We talk about, how in our increasingly toxic world, it is vital to our health to ensure our bodies are properly detoxing. Glutathione is the body’s master antioxidant and primary antioxidant for detoxification. Stem cells can help to lower inflammation, regulate the immune system, and regenerate damaged or diseased tissue in your body. By allowing tissue repair and reduced inflammation, stem cell therapy can help patients to live a healthier and better quality of life.

    Fasting for Health & Spiritual Transformation

    Fasting for Health & Spiritual Transformation

    This week on the Real Health Conversations Podcast, Holly takes a look at the spiritual aspects of fasting. People of all walks of life are rediscovering the wisdom of fasting and feasting, the circadian rhythms of nature, and tuning in to the ancestral and spiritual aspects of primal health cycles.
    This episode looks at fasting, specifically fasting from sugar and the so-called socially acceptable addictions – sugar and caffeine – and how those two crutches may be holding us back from the true health and spiritual transformations that many are seeking. Sugar, refined carbohydrates, ultra processed foods, and refined grains are at the root of inflammation and many disease pathways yet they are the hardest, most addictive foods to give up. Some call them addictions, others may see them as strongholds.
    Fasting is a powerful tool to leverage a food addiction, or an over-reliance on foods for comfort, support, and sustenance. In this episode we look at the benefits of fasting for mental function, healing rejuvenation, and increased willpower. Fasting from sugar – the source of sickness for so many – is the first step in healing your body physically and spiritually.

    Holly’s 6 Week Fall Sugar Fast
    40 Day Sugar Fast, Fall Group Program with Holly Jean
    If you have been struggling with your diet, with your weight, with your health; If sugar, or sweets, or carbs, or cocktails seem to continually derail your progress; If you have tried to give these items up without success – then you might have a sugar addiction.

    Did you know, 88% of the population is metabolically unhealthy? Sugar is at the root of metabolic dysfunction and dis-ease. Join me for my 6 Week Fall Sugar Fast starting this September 19. Beyond a physical detox, this sugar fast is also a spiritual transformation.
    What would you be willing to give up to experience the presence of God in your life again? Many of us sign up for a physical detox program, thinking that if our bodies are healthier, then we’re healthier. But a healthy body doesn’t do us a lot of good if we are spiritually malnourished.
    My 6 week online group sugar fast follows the book 40 Day Sugar Fast by Wendy Speake. In this sugar fast you’ll learn how to stop fixating on food and other things you use to fill the voids in life and instead fix your eyes on Christ.

    Anyone who runs to sugar for comfort or a reward, who eats mindlessly or out of boredom, who feels physically and spiritually lethargic, or who struggles with self-control will discover ,not only freedom from their cravings, but an entirely new appetite for the good things God has for us.

    Sugar Addiction is More Serious Than You Think

    Sugar Addiction is More Serious Than You Think

    Welcome to Real Health Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.
     
    This week on the Real Health Conversations Podcast, Lonestar Keto Girl, Amber Wentworth, joins us to share the not-so-sweet realities of sugar addiction. Amber is a food addiction and sugar specialist with a personal health and weight-loss story that many can relate to – trying every diet program, repeatedly gaining and losing, unable to maintain weight loss, and frustrated with the entire process. Her life changed when she discovered the keto diet and sugar addiction at the root of her struggles.
    Just like any other addiction to caffeine or cocaine, sugar is pretty addictive in nature too. We have modern science to prove that sugar is indeed one of the strongest addictions known for humans, but how do we know if we are addicted or just having cravings? Amber shares her SUGAR assessment and shares her methods for quitting sugar for good.

    Can How You Brew Your Coffee Impact Cholesterol Levels?

    Can How You Brew Your Coffee Impact Cholesterol Levels?

    Welcome to Real Health Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.
    This week on the Real Health Conversations Podcast Leah and Holly take on coffee and cholesterol! Is the sophisticated sexiness of French Pressed coffee worth the alleged risk of negatively impacting cholesterol levels? This real health conversation was inspired by an article in the Huffington Post that very loosely links the two by inconclusive results from a weak study.
    In this episode you’ll hear about why cholesterol is important and why we may not always have to be so concerned with lowering it. Cholesterol is necessary for healing and protection and not necessarily the bad guy it is made out to be.
