    #57 SuperFeast Rewind: Period Repair with Dr Lara Briden

    #57 SuperFeast Rewind: Period Repair with Dr Lara Briden

    In today's Women Series episode, Tahnee chats with Dr. Lara Briden who is on a mission to empower women to reclaim their menstrual cycles. Dr. Lara refers to women's monthly cycles as their monthly report card and how ovulation is a vital sign of health. The ladies discuss how ovulation is so much more than just making a baby. Even though PMS and infertility are normalised in the Western world, Dr. Lara breaks it down that these symptoms are not healthy nor necessary. Hormonal birth control options are discussed and the ladies dive into the difference between PCOS and hypothalamic amenorrhea. To help empower women gaining confidence and knowledge about their cycles Dr. Lara shares methods to track ovulation and tips on dietary lifestyles to feel vital and healthy as a woman.
     
    The Ladies Discuss:
    Without ovulation, there is technically no cycle PCOS sufferers often experience anovulatory cycles (a bleed, without ovulation) Did you know a regular cycle occurs every 21-35 days? Tips to track ovulation include cervical mucous and basal body temperatures Fertile mucous looks like raw egg-white and is a sign of estrogen When you are on the Pill, you will not produce fertile mucous A blood test looking at progesterone is risky as progesterone fluctuates throughout the cycle The idea that the Pill supports fertility is a myth; it shrinks the ovaries and may bring on menopause earlier Hormonal birth control essentially induces a menopausal state It takes 12 years (TWELVE!) for a female's hormonal systems to fully mature Younger girls can often successfully treat period issues with anti-inflammatory foods and being dairy-free How a vegan diet can pose severe challenges for women's hormone health Resources:

    #56 SuperFeast Rewind: Pregnancy Health with Tahnee McCrossin

    #56 SuperFeast Rewind: Pregnancy Health with Tahnee McCrossin

    Part 2 to the epic first pregnancy preparation episode. If you haven't listened yet to Part 1, check it out here. This mammoth episode sees Mason and Tahnee diving deep into the practices, philosophy, diet and herbalism that went into creating the year in which Tahnee was childbearing little Aiya. This podcast was recorded during the first week of bubba's life, so the sharing experience of the birth is fresh; something Tahnee was wishing to be able to infuse into this intimate sharing of how she chose to approach nourishing her body during pregnancy. We have received such amazing feedback from these two episodes and with such amazing sharings, we had to revisit them!

    Here’s what Mason and Tahnee dive into (with much more extensive notes shared below):
    Pregnancy and home birth plans How did Tahnee know? We found out at four weeks, basically I was very aware that something was different in my body!! We’d both felt the baby come in November, and exactly three months later we were pregnant, and I’ve heard that’s common Pregnancy diet we don’t follow a dietary plan, more intuitive generally vegetarian, though we do include meat in our diet, probably once or twice a week: fish, buffalo, occasionally organic chicken and beef, other wild meats (rabbit, goat, boar), broths/stocks more mindful of eating a variety of foods and definitely eat more quantity, smaller meals, regularly organic and local as much as possible - farmers market and Santos/Source keep us fed fridge/freezer is stocked wild foods, high mineral content fermented foods Best supplements during pregnancy I didn’t take a lot of vitamins or anything like that, apart from lipsomal vitamin C lots of herbs, mostly tonics, plus raspberry leaf and nettle, slippery elm occasionally, yellow dock, dandelion, milk thistle, ginger lots of probiotics iodine until I saturated silica personally most concerned about losing minerals as bubbas drain mamas (for every baby a tooth, is an old saying!) so been keeping up the minerals megahydrate estroblock when we had it, just one cap per day of the pro clays and charcoal (you might’ve heard of pica - desire to eat clays - common in pregnant women) DHA, EFA: fish oil, also raw seafood, fish and oysters sea minerals The best tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms during pregnancy best suggestion is reishi, but I took everything in the SuperFeast range at various stages, kidney jing herbs lately (postpartum) to heal and boost recovery Best herbs during pregnancy avoid steroidal herbs, emmenagogues check out Susun Weed’s book and Aviva Romm Symptoms of pregnancy been lucky, apart from tiredness and needing to eat a lot more, I’ve had very little to complain about. Have felt body change, but that’s been fine, I’ve enjoyed being pregnant. Heartburn when my uterus got really big (apparently babies with lots of hair give their mamas heartburn…), but that stopped when baby dropped, ‘growing pains’ around my ribs (like when I was a kid), car sickness if I had an empty belly Pregnancy cravings / changes started eating meat again, pretty mindfully needed lots of simple carbs in the first trimester, regularly. Like, every two hours. Bilbo Baggins style - breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, lunch, afternoons I wasn’t a hungry, but at least one snack and then dinner. And often needed to eat in the middle of the night. So I did 😃 waking up starving - that’s new for me! generally more calories haven’t put on much weight, I don’t think, except for boobs and belly and in third trimester around my bum and hips. I haven’t weighed myself Exercise during pregnancy yoga - only consideration, IMO, is how the mother feels and to listen to her body - if you’re a regular yogi, you will be less flexible in certain areas, this is OK, it’s not about extreme ROM it’s about being m

    #55 SuperFeast Rewind: Female Hormones with Dr Carrie Jones

    #55 SuperFeast Rewind: Female Hormones with Dr Carrie Jones

    In today's Women Series episode, Tahnee dives deep into listening to your body's innate wisdom, with Dr Carrie Jones. Dr Carrie is the medical director of the DUTCH, which is a relatively new analytic to test hormones and safe to say it greatly differs from the traditional Western blood-test approach. The ladies discuss the HPA axis and how the thyroid is best tested. Adrenal fatigue is explored and the discussion around slowing down and not being a master of all the things, all the time, is covered. Keto and veganism lifestyles are discussed. This is a beautiful conversation around a woman's wellbeing and how it is a complex and dancing conversation between all the organ systems and hormones. You don't want to miss this one! 
     
    The ladies discuss:
    - Blood tests show that moment in time; blood doesn't present what each constituent piece is doing, where it's going, or how the body is interacting with it
    - Accurately testing cortisol via blood, is challenging
    - DUTCH show the metabolites, which present how each hormone was processed
    - The ideal Western standard range for blood test data is very arbitrary
    - A slow thyroid slows down everything - hair, nails, metabolism, cortisol
    - Thyroid testing is best via blood
    - Cortisol and melatonin and sort of the like the sun and the moon, like Yin and Yang
    - Circadian rhythm irregularities (e.g. poor sleep) will effect all our rhythms, our female cycle included 
    - We love routine and structure, honour the body by having positive sleep hygiene practices and routine meal time. Basics are key
    - Why keto and intermittent fasting might not be for you
    - How symptoms easily become the normal, but feeling anxious, feeling tired all the time, are not the sign of health
    - How "adrenal fatigue" is the body's way of saying slow down
    - Quality truely is key when it comes to supplements 
    - How veganism has the tendency to deplete a woman's systems
    - What's leptin resistance? 
    - The physiology behind polycystic ovarian syndrome
    - Biologically speaking, survival is the priority, reproduction is not. Hence why stress can play havoc with a women's cycle
    - Libido is a strong sign of robust health, low libido is an indicator there is imbalance
    - Why informed decision-making, regarding the Pill is critical
    - Why menopause symptoms can differ so significantly between women

    #054 SuperFeast Rewind: Autoimmunity and Medicinal Mushrooms

    #054 SuperFeast Rewind: Autoimmunity and Medicinal Mushrooms

    Autoimmunity (AI). You've heard it, but what is it? Today Mason is joined by SuperFeast fave naturopath, Dan Sipple to explore the beast that is autoimmunity and what factors play a role in autoimmune conditions. Perhaps the Western definition of AI is too cut and dry; the guys discuss the Eastern approaches and how the gut environment plays a key role (we've got two gut health podcasts Part One and Part Two, if you want to brush up on your gut health). This episode dives deeply into the ancient Daoism behind AI patterns and which tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms can help support the body during these times. If you're afflicted with an AI condition, this episode is for you.
     
    "Autoimmunity is when the body is seemingly attacking itself" - Mason Taylor
    The guys discuss:
    - Suppression of autoimmune issues leads to significant illness later on
    - Treatment of autoimmunity from the Taoist perspective
    - Leaky gut (intestinal permeability) causes a barrage against your immune system - a significant initiating factor of AI
    - Pleghm, edema, heat toxicity, dampness, all AI symptoms; the TCM patterns 
    - According to TCM, upright Qi is vital for immunity (astragalus for the win)
    - SuperFeast Chaga, Reishi and Astragalus, are top immunity herbs
    - The tightening / tenseness within the body is exacerbating AI symptoms; must release the tension
    - There are hard coded AI genes, BUT environment / diet / movement / community / purpose / stress all affect their expression
    - Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) in the morning, helps determine the degree of autoimmune cells tagged in the thymus gland for destruction by your immune system. So if your CAR is flat lined (from smashing coffees, burning the candle at both ends, constant fight or flight / Yang state), cortisol production is low and you're more prone to unchecked destructive inflammation
    - The traditional Western belief that high Th1 causes AI, is no longer relevant
    - Those with AI - do not put chemicals on the skin, get in the sun, skin brush

    #053 SuperFeast Rewind: Beyond the Pill with Dr. Jolene Brighten

    #053 SuperFeast Rewind: Beyond the Pill with Dr. Jolene Brighten

    Today Tahnee chats with Dr. Jolene Brighten, who is the author of Beyond the Pill. As the name suggests, this book explores the effects of the Pill and how to transition healthily off it. Coming off the Pill can often lead to a whole host of symptoms, but these symptoms can be seen as opportunities for greater health. The ladies share their experiences as new mum's and the challenges that must be navigated. So often, women can lose trust in their body and ability to heal and part of this can be associated with how often women's needs are dismissed in the general practitioner forum. Informed consent around the Pill is required and often missing in the Western setting. The ladies remind us that our bodies never betray us, they want us to thrive!
     
    The ladies discuss:
    - Postpartum challenges.
    - How magnesium is a godsend for cramps.
    - A Pill bleed is not a true cycle, it is simply a withdrawal bleed from the medication.
    - The natural approach will always take time, so be patient.
    - During third trimester, the female brain shrinks! To allow for hyper focus on the newborn. Baby brain is real!!
    - Liquorice is very beneficial for new mums and PCOS sufferers, it's anti-inflammatory, supports cortisol and helps manage androgens.
    - The ins and outs of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome).
    - Using the Pill increases your chances of several health issues (cardiovascular disease, clots, diabetes).
    - The key to balanced hormones are a supported liver and gut system
    - Regardless of your want to have a baby or not, during the reproductive years, being fertile is integral to overall health.
    - DIM and broccoli sprouts are a girls best friend when dealing wth estrogen issues.
    - Ever feel dizzy upon standing up? Add some good quality salt to your water.
    - Birth control-anxiety-depression; there's a connection to explore.
    - Don't be scared of eating a bit of dirt every now and again :)!
