    72 - Season Finale

    72 - Season Finale

    We are sad to say that this is the season finale of Spark season #2. But the ladies WILL be back. In this episode, they take a stroll down memory lane and share some of their favorite moments from this season (and even a few throw-backs to season 1). If you haven't listened to all of the episodes, this is a great cheat sheet of episodes to start with. 
    Favorites:
    Episodes 63 & 68 with dietician Taylor Stolt. Nicole especially loved the functional medicine approach to healing. Both ladies were also fascinated that sugar addiction is real and sometimes will power has nothing to do with being able to avoid it.  Episodes 60 & 61 - Detox Your Home - The How & Why. Nicole discusses how these two episodes blew her mind and what changes she has already made. We love the empowerment piece here. Oh, and listen in for a funny story about little people eating toothpaste.  Episode 62 - Stress with Thom Allen - We love all of the discussions around mental health because we are all stressed and anxious these days.  Throwbacks to Season 1: 
    Episode 34 - The Vagina Whisperer with Sara Reardon Episode 43 - Simple Families with Denaye Barahona Episode 51 - New Year's Diet and Fitness Resolutions (this is timely!) Episodes 52 & 53 - Clear the Clutter y'all! We are obsessed!  AWC Goodies:

    71 - Hypnotherapy with Celeste Hackett

    71 - Hypnotherapy with Celeste Hackett

    Most of us have seen a hypnotist on TV or at a comedy club, but are they just for entertainment purposes? Celeste Hackett is a trained hypnotist who helps her clients dive into their self conscious and navigate challenges like pain, emotional components related to illness, bad habits and more. On this episode, she shares with Angela about the power of hypnosis and how it can make real change in our lives. 
     
    From the Episode:
    Angela met Celeste while finding a solution to her migraines. She shares how she found Celeste and the impact it made. Celeste shares her fascinating journey from a radio DJ to a hypnotherapist.  You’ve most likely seen a hypnotist portrayed in a show or movie, but is that for real? Celeste helps use through the myths and talks about the truths of hypnosis. Hypnotism is a journey into a person’s subconscious where all their beliefs, habits and memories live. Celeste gives a full overview of her work, including the comforting feeling that when you are hypnotised, you are in control, can make decisions, and can remember everything. Can hypnosis be used for more than just weight loss and quitting smoking? There are countless ways hypnotism can be used to better our lives. High achieving women can benefit from hypnotism. It can be used to help with stress and even procrastination.  Celeste shares her three steps in finding the hypnotist that is right for you.

    69 - Is Your Shampoo Making You Fat? with Lara Adler

    69 - Is Your Shampoo Making You Fat? with Lara Adler

    Lara Adler is an Environmental Toxins Expert, and Angela’s teacher.  The ladies discuss a class of chemicals called obesegens that are in your daily products (and yes, they make you fat). They take a deeper dive into specifics on some of the chemicals in your home as well as government laws and the importance of consumer education and action. 
     
    From the Episode:
    We highly recommend you check out our two-part Detoxing your Home Series (episodes 60 &61) before listening to this episode. The series gives you a great foundation that is important to have moving into Lara and Angela’s talk.  There are over 20 chemicals that are known obesogens. Learn about how they could be causing weight gain.  Where do I even begin? True to our mantra, we want you to start by pressing the easy button. We give you key areas to start with that involve your sense of smell and taste. Organic. Yes, you need to start focusing on it. Lara gives you the reasons why, including some you probably have never thought of. The decisions Moms make with food while their baby is in utero has a profound impact on how their cells and body develops. Be curious. Regulations and testings are often not up to snuff, even those done by the government. We talk about what to trust and how doing your own research can impact you and often, countless others. The EU has a track record of regulating but not banning. Lara talks about their approach and how it makes a huge difference in their countries.

    68 - Treat Your Gut Right with Taylor Stolt

    68 - Treat Your Gut Right with Taylor Stolt

    It’s time to talk about guts. Taylor is back this week to join Angela in an in-depth conversation about gut health and why it should matter to you. This episode will provide you with an understanding of the importance of the gut and walk you through how this one area of your body has a big impact on your immune system as well as your emotions. 
     
    From the Episode:
    Taylor gives us an overview on what she does as a certified LEAP therapist and how she helps clients with food sensitivities. Leaky Gut?! It sure sounds icky, but Taylor walks us through what it is and why we should care. We always provide solutions. Taylor talks us through the “Five R Protocol” which guides you through ways to remedy a leaky gut. Did you know the majority of your immune system is in your gut?  Hormone imbalances are often an issue of diet or leaky gut.  The brain and your gut have an intimate relationship.  Your sugar addiction is often not a willpower issue. It could be the bugs in your gut. Hot Topic Alert: Gluten. Taylor gives a fabulous overview of how much gluten we should be consuming and how to find out what works best for your body.

    Studies/Research
     
    Leaky gut can cause systemic disease
    Quote - "Disruption of the intestinal tight junction barrier, followed by permeation of luminal noxious molecules, induces a perturbation of the mucosal immune system and inflammation, and can act as a trigger for the development of intestinal and systemic diseases" Study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22782113  
    Leaky gut can cause autoimmune disease:
    Quote - "Intestinal hyperpermeability is often found to precede autoimmune disorders and is suspected to be the means by which abnormal passage of antigens from the intestinal lumen results in an autoimmune response. " Study:https://academic.oup.com/biohorizons/article/doi/10.1093/biohorizons/hzx015/4670557

    Leaky gut can cause weight gain.
    Quote: "Recent evidence suggests a possible role of gut intestinal permeability in obesity" Study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22902773

    Leaky gut can lead to autoimmune disease, inflammation, and cancer
    Quote - "When the finely tuned zonulin pathway is deregulated in genetically susceptible individuals, both intestinal and extraintestinal autoimmune, inflammatory, and neoplastic disorders can occur." Study - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21248165/  
    Gluten causes leaky gut whether or not you have Celiac:
    Quote - "Intestinal exposure to gliadin leads to zonulin upregulation and consequent disassembly of intercellular tight junctions and increased intestinal permeability." Study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25734566
