    E67: A gut healing story about recovering from Lyme disease with Carley Smith ("aka" fairy gutmother)

    E67: A gut healing story about recovering from Lyme disease with Carley Smith ("aka" fairy gutmother)

    We are thrilled to bring you today’s guest, Carley Smith, AKA Fairy Gutmother®, who is a Nutritional Therapist, Certified GAPS Practitioner, and Registered Yoga Teacher. Carley became interested in health and nutrition after being diagnosed with Lyme disease, using food as medicine and focusing on gut health to help heal. She became so empowered by her progress in her healing based on diet and lifestyle changes and emphasizing gut health, that she started her business, Fairy Gutmother®, so she could help spread awareness around nutrition.
    Carley is adamant about promoting the "gut health lifestyle" as it is more than a diet, rather, a combination of food and environment that play a role in the health of the microbiome.
    Carley has been a featured guest on The Dr. Oz Show and is a frequent guest for Colorado’s Own Channel 2 News, and the popular iHeart Radio show Modern Eater. Her articles have been published in major worldwide publications including MindBodyGreen, Yoga + Life Magazine, and Paleo Magazine to name a few. She also leads numerous workshops, public speaking events, and cooking demonstrations centered around the "gut health lifestyle." 
    During our conversation today Carley shares her personal journey with Lyme disease, and specifically how she healed herself.  We talk a lot about the specific types of foods that she used including the GAPS diet, as well as lifestyle changes including movement and stress, which both play a significant role on your gut health.
    Carley does such a wonderful job explaining gut health, using great analogies that simplify a fairly complicated topic for anyone to understand.  She shares many practical tips to help heal your gut from her own health journey, as well as helping numerous people in her own practice.  You won't want to miss this episode!

    Carley just launched a gut health course, which you can check out here.

    Bonus 66.5: Let's talk about sleep (and what's new and fun with Marnie & Stephanie)

    Welcome to this bonus episode with Marnie and Stephanie where we share a few updates on our personal lives and then dive into the popular topic of sleep.  Here is what we share in today's episode:
    We discuss how we've been "hanging out" on Clubhouse, which is the invitation-only audio-chat social networking app.  Follow each of us: @superfoodsteph and @myzenfullife so that you can join our weekly rooms where we discuss a variety of topics. We'd love to connect with our listeners and learn more about what's on your mind.  Need an invite?  Message us to get on the list. A few of the sleep tips we share include: Making your room an inviting, cool and dark place. Stop eating a couple hours before bed (and limiting liquids too so you don't wake up to use the loo). Journal/brain dump your to do list before bed. Meditate/breath-very helpful if you do wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall back to sleep. Gratitude practice

    We also talk about the role cortisol and stress play with your ability to get a good night's sleep and how a simple functional medicine at-home lab test can provide data to help you get to the root cause of your sleep concerns.  Reach out to Stephanie & Marnie  to learn more about at-home lab tests.

    We are excited to bring you today’s guest, Udo Erasmus.
    The legendary Udo Erasmus is the founder of Udo's Choice, a line of oils and probiotics found in Whole Foods and other health food stores worldwide. Udo first pioneered Flax Seed Oil and invented the machinery that brought healthy oils to the market.
    In our conversation you'll hear Udo's personal story about how he got very ill from pesticide poisoning, which in turn motivated him to get serious about healing himself at a core level. Putting his science background to use, Udo learned a lot about health and nutrition and turned his knowledge into practical advice for others. This is why Udo’s Choice health products exist today.
    Udo is an acclaimed author, speaker and expert on TOTAL SEXY HEALTH. He has an 8 step process that takes into consideration all of the elements of whole health that includes our mental health, presence and awareness, our life energy and being in harmony with nature and humanity.
    Udo has presented at Tony Robbins events (on oils) and Deepak Chopra's (on peace) and has sold over 250,000 books. Udo’s background includes studies in Biochemistry, Genetics and Biology and Nutrition as well as a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology.
    We had a fascinating conversation with Udo, and we dove into the nuts and bolts of oils and how to use them, and then we went on to talk about his Total Sexy Health 8 step process and finally about living in harmony and alignment. You will not want to miss this enlightening conversation.

    E65: How to build a strong immune system and other great tips with nutritionist and biochemist Karen Hurd

    E65: How to build a strong immune system and other great tips with nutritionist and biochemist Karen Hurd

    We are thrilled to welcome back, Karen Hurd, Nutritionist and Biochemist. She has been practicing nutrition for 30 years and has helped over 30K people reclaim their health through her services, including her e-courses. The first time we talked with Karen was in the spring of 2020, where we introduced her and she shared her life and very personal story about what led her to do this work.  She talked about her nutrition philosophy and how to heal the body through the power of food. We highly recommend that you listen to episode #39 with Karen as it was our most popular episode so far.  She is full of so much wisdom and insight, and we love how Karen is so deep into the science, in particular with Covid-19, which she’ll share with us today.
    Karen, in addition to her nutritional training, holds her masters degree in biochemistry. Her philosophy in approaching health is that of Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine) when he said, "Let food be thy medicine, and thy medicine be food." Karen applies her knowledge at the biomolecular level to understand the cause of the health problems we face and what dietary and lifestyle changes are needed to correct that cause and unlock our best health.
    In today's episode Karen shares her immunity building tips including an in depth discussion about the Covid-19 virus.  We discuss her immunity building protocol, which includes food (and yes we’ll discuss sugar) but also simple lifestyle tips to help ward off any viruses, or reduce the symptoms if you do contract one.   We even talk about her view on doing a polar plunge and what temperature she recommends that you keep your room at night.
    Karen’s goal is to live to 120 years old and she does everything in her power each day to help her live as long as she possibly can, which she shares with us in our conversation.
    Karen also shares her perspective on the Covid-19 vaccine, which we know is top of mind right now, as we enter the second year of this pandemic.  
    Karen has an exciting update as she is in the process of creating a free app to provide people with the health studies relating to Covid-19, the pandemic, the vaccine and other news to help reduce the fear that many people are experiencing. We talk about the role that stress and fear play on your health, which we know is at an all time high.
    This episode is for informational purposes only and should not be taken as medical advice.  Should you need information on the Covid-19 virus please visit the CDC website for guidance. Please seek professional guidance from your medical/health care provider.

    E64: Prioritizing self-care with yoga teacher and podcaster Ashley Sondergaard

    We are thrilled to bring you today’s guest, Ashley Sondergaard.
    Ashley is a yoga teacher, an entrepreneur and host of the Yoga Magic podcast. For 8 years, she has studied yoga, meditation, astrology and mindfulness practices that prioritize self-care and self-discovery. After having her two girls, Ashley discovered the hard way that taking care of yourself first is the only way to take care of others. Today, she supports her students & clients in up leveling their everyday routines into magical self-care rituals.
    We had a very engaging conversation with Ashley about self-care, unique well-being practices, and manifestation, some of our favorite topics. We dove into the importance of self-care, creating self-care rituals and reducing stress. Ashley offered a bunch of self-care tips that can be incorporated into one's life right away, such as honoring your basic needs like eating healthy foods and drinking water regularly. She talks about the importance of "trying on what you like" and finding what works for you.
    We also dove deeper into the super fascinating topic of unique well-being and spirituality practices. We discussed Taro readings, astrological birth charts, shadow work, past lives regressions and more. We loved hearing all about these modalities that are so new to us. Ashley is such an engaging and fun person to talk with and we are excited to share this conversation with you!
