    33. Interview w/Jen Ball, Somatic Sex Coach/Sexological Bodywork Practitioner

    In today's episode, I interview the incredible Jen Ball (they/them) of Wild Root Revival (www.wildrootrevival.com).

    Jen is a somatic sex coach and sexological bodywork practitioner, passionate about helping people come home to their bodies, their pleasure, and their power. Their practice focuses on embodiment & intimacy support, intentional pleasure practices, and integrating body and identity. 

    After a family tragedy, Jen began a wholehearted journey with grief and PTSD, with deep work around belonging and identity, agency, and acceptance. Their personal experience with transformative growth in the midst of devastation informs much of their work. Jen is privileged to create a warm and welcoming container for the most vulnerable explorations, for all of the feelings, and for the joy that comes with being fully and heartbreakingly human.

    If you have struggled to make peace with your body before, during, or after your cancer journey you will LOVE this episode.

    32. Dating After Breast Cancer

    32. Dating After Breast Cancer

    Dating after breast cancer can be a daunting experience, especially if you are struggling with feeling confident in your body and worried about how you will be accepted by a potential partner.  

    In today's episode, I break down what I have learned about dating in a post-pandemic world in a post-mastectomy body.  

    A few topics I cover: 

    -How apps can take some of the awkwardness out of telling a new potential partner about your cancer history

    -The advantages and disadvantages of meeting new people on the apps vs. in real life

    -How to know when you "are ready to get back out there"

    -The self-care tools I used to help boost my confidence 

    -The benefits of sharing your experience and supporting yourself with single friends

    ...some of the most surprising moments I've had, some of the sweetest moments I've had, and one of the lowest moments I had regarding dealing with other people's reactions to my history as a breast cancer survivor.

    At the end of the day, dating TRULY can be FUN...even as a cancer survivor.  Being more vigilant about enforcing my boundaries and also being more open, honest, and direct about how to handle my post-cancer body with care has actually been incredibly empowering.  I hope the same for you too!

    30. Fasting & Breast Cancer

    30. Fasting & Breast Cancer

    In today's episode, I discuss how participating in a fasting protocol can be beneficial to breast cancer patients.

    Research has shown very promising results regarding using fasting to lower your risk of breast cancer recurrence and also to enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy treatments.  

    I have utilized fasting in my life for decades for various reasons and have seen many benefits.  

    Topics covered in this episode: 1.  What is IF (intermittent fasting)? How do you do it? 

    2. Why is fasting good to prevent breast cancer from coming back? 

    3.  How can fasting increase the benefits of chemotherapy treatment and reduce side effects? 

    4. Who shouldn't fast? 

    5. Common questions and concerns when starting a fasting protocol

    6. How to make fasting easier

    7. Why women who don't tolerate Tamoxifen should consider IF

    8. My experimentation with fasting over the last 25 years

    Fasting has been studied as a potential way to improve chemotherapy outcomes. Short-term fasting has been observed to increase chemotherapy sensitivity in some cancer cells, enhance cancer cell death, and reduce chemotherapy-induced side effects. Fasting also increases the levels of certain hormones such as growth hormone, which may be beneficial for chemotherapy efficacy. In addition, fasting may reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, which are important factors in the effectiveness of chemotherapy. Finally, fasting may reset the body’s metabolism, allowing it to better utilize chemotherapy drugs. 

    As always, thank you for listening!

    In 2020, Portland, OR passed ballot measure 109 which gives Oregon Health Authority the job of overseeing magic mushroom consumption. 

    In the premiere episode of season two, I'm talking with my guests about how microdosing with psilocybin (aka magic mushrooms) can be used to rewire the brain. 

    After experiencing profound healing through psychedelic treatment, sisters Megan and Nicole Michelena founded Zenchronicity, a microdose mentorship program that supports healing with psilocybin. Megan and Nicole are Microdosing Institute certified mental health experts specializing in trauma healing through plant medicine. Megan is also a certified holistic nutritionist, health coach, and both are trauma-informed yoga teachers and experts in psychedelic medicine. Nicole has studied plant medicine and the benefits it has in helping individuals heal emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

    The sisters are also the hosts of the podcast, Zenchronicity.
