    Ep. 99 What Glucose Tells Us About Our Health and Wellness with Emily Johnson

    Ep. 99 What Glucose Tells Us About Our Health and Wellness with Emily Johnson

    If you’ve ever eaten a meal and felt immediately drained, fatigued, or brain-fogged, you also probably wondered why those foods made you feel that way — and you’re not alone. Foods affect people so differently, and one of the clearest disparities is in how our blood sugar responds to our lifestyle choices.
    With continuous glucose monitoring, it’s easy to get an objective look at our overall health through the lens of our blood sugar. Get too little sleep, and you might notice your blood sugar responding to that. Eat too many carbs without some protein or fat, and you might be spiking more than usual. 
    It can also help us avoid chronic health issues like insulin resistance (pre-diabetes) and diabetes, or give us insight into how glucose affects autoimmune conditions and other health issues we’re already facing. 
    No matter what the reason, continuous glucose monitoring gives us valuable information about our health that can help us make informed choices about our diet, sleep, and exercise habits that can keep our overall health and wellness at its peak. 
    Join me in welcoming Emily Johnson of Veri to learn more about continuous glucose monitoring and how glucose plays a role in every part of our wellbeing.

    Ep. 98: What To Do When You Get “Glutened” with Sophie Shepherd

    Ep. 98: What To Do When You Get “Glutened” with Sophie Shepherd

    If you have a gluten sensitivity or allergy, you probably are familiar with the less-than-ideal scenario of getting “glutened.” It’s a term I started using to describe when you unsuspectingly ingest gluten and are now in for inevitable symptoms and reactions to what just happened. 
    When you get glutened, your body will have both a physical and emotional response to it. You might get gluten brain fog, fatigue, digestive inflammation, headaches, and more. But aside from the physical response, it can send you through a whirlwind of emotions like frustration, anxiety, and overall catastrophizing. 
    But it doesn’t have to be this way. In this episode, I’m recounting a recent moment when I got glutened and didn’t have my usual defense mechanisms on hand to cope. Instead, I doubled-down on managing my emotional response, which allowed me take clearer action to take care of my body. 
    You’ll learn how I use breathwork, co-regulation, tapping techniques for emotional regulation, and other emotional regulation tools to prevent a bad situation from spiraling into something worse. So if you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, or could just use some extra stress relief tips, this episode will cover how I manage it, and how you can, too.

    Ep. 97 How Inner Child Work Can Help With C-PTSD and Emotional Patterns with Zelina Chinwoh

    Ep. 97 How Inner Child Work Can Help With C-PTSD and Emotional Patterns with Zelina Chinwoh

    Everybody has patterns that are part of their programming. They determine how you show up in the world, interact with others, and even make big life decisions. But what most people don’t realize is that these patterns don’t have to control you. 
    When you become aware of the subconscious patterns and programming that drive you to do what you do, you can regain control over your life and make informed decisions that you are consciously aware of. 
    Through inner child work and getting to the root cause of trauma, you can begin addressing patterns that are rooted in people-pleasing, perfectionism, or fear. Whether you have old trauma that was rooted in abuse or neglect or some patterns that are no longer serving you coming from childhood or family expectations, inner child work is a great way to begin conscious healing.
    Zelina Chinwoh shares with us how we can begin healing from perfectionism, people-pleasing, loneliness, voicelessness, and other subconscious patterns that are rooted in our childhood experiences. When we make the subconscious conscious, we open ourselves up to a world of patience, empathy, growth, and gratitude.

    Ep. 95 I Never Intended to Have a Podcast (and why I decided to relaunch it)

    Ep. 95 I Never Intended to Have a Podcast (and why I decided to relaunch it)

    Why did I take a break and relaunch the podcast? That’s a great question! And I’m here to answer it with the help of my amazing support system who came to celebrate the SHE Talks Health podcast relaunch with me a few weeks ago!
    I never intended to have a women’s health podcast, but during the pandemic, this world opened up to me and allowed me to share my message and story with the world. Millions of women struggle with under-diagnosed health issues, and I was one of them. In my early 20s, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s, but only after a long and frustrating experience with the medical system. 
    Fast-forward to today, I’ve helped many women work through their unexplained health issues, find answers, and finally have the tools for healing that functional medicine can provide. I’ve learned how to help clients address more than just their physical health but to improve their emotional and spiritual well-being, too.
    My goal is to get this podcast out to as many women as I can all over the world so they can find the healing and answers they deserve to have. So I hope you join me for the new and improved SHE Talks Health Podcast! I’m happy to have you here.

    Ep. 94 The Benefits of Near Infrared Light Therapy with Brian Richards

    Ep. 94 The Benefits of Near Infrared Light Therapy with Brian Richards

    Our bodies have always used the sun to convert light into energy for movement, healing, and restoration. With the increased prevalence of blue light devices in our everyday lives and more indoor-centric lifestyles, it’s becoming harder and harder to get the benefits from the sun that used to come to us naturally. 
    So how can we heal and restore our bodies if we can’t get enough benefits from naturally occurring infrared light? Brian Richards from Sauna Space has one solution. He created a technology that combines the detoxifying benefits of a sauna, with the restorative benefits of near-infrared (NIR) light therapy. When combined, these two therapeutic methods can bring powerful benefits into our bodies, going as deep as our individual cells.
    When using sauna therapy combined with near-infrared light, your body can heal and detox naturally to help bring brain fog relief, ease symptoms of depression and mood disorders, detox free radicals, reset circadian rhythms, and more. 
    Join us to learn how the near-infrared light therapy benefits can help you on your path to healing and restoration and discover the mental health benefits that combining sweat-light therapy can bring almost immediately.
