    Aging Gracefully with Dr. Michelle McElroy

    Aging Gracefully with Dr. Michelle McElroy

    Dr. Michelle McElroy always knew that she wanted to be a doctor. From the time she was a little girl, she was fascinated with the idea of helping people. She became an Obstetrician and Gynecologist and helped women bring happy, healthy babies into the world. She also helped older women with hormone replacement as they aged. But something was missing from her practice. She kept handing out medicines and realized that while her patients might get better, the root causes of disease were often still in place. She began looking for solutions instead of what she felt were just "bandages" on the symptoms. This is when she found Functional Medicine, often called "root cause" medicine. Dr. Michelle McElroy found just what she was looking for! She shares her passion with us in this edition of the podcast.

    A Holistic Vet talks about vaccines, cancer, chemicals and much, much more!

    A Holistic Vet talks about vaccines, cancer, chemicals and much, much more!

    Dr. Brad Roach of HolisticPetCare.Vet and BestFriendsAnimalClinic.Vet, joins us on the podcast to talk about the things he sees with his clients and patients. Taking a holistic view of animal care often means that one must think outside of the traditional mindset. Human holistic doctors and their patients can come to an understanding and communicate with each other. But when the patient is furry, feathered or scaly, the doctor must be more in-tune with their non-verbal responses! Dr. Roach talks about knowing when his patients are getting relief and how they respond to acupuncture, chiropractic, herbal remedies, and nutritional adjustments. This podcast is the first of 2 - in the NEXT episode, we will discuss CANCER in our pets. Cancer has rightfully been called "The Emperor of All Maladies." So check back in often for our next conversation with Dr. Roach.

    H & H Processing - Getting Back to Nature!

    H & H Processing - Getting Back to Nature!

    Imagine the early days of Oklahoma, the black gold rush. OIL. Finding oil in Oklahoma set the stage for what was then a "new" state in the union to become a powerhouse in the growing oil economy. The Hallum family was at the forefront of that oil boom in Oklahoma. Now though, two of the Hallum family members, Brian and Amber, are processing a different type of oil; its called FECO - Full Extract Cannabis Oil. And the Hallums believe it can be another type of oil rush for Oklahoma. But THIS oil rush is one that offers healing, hope and happiness in the form of physical and emotional relief. While our founding fathers (and mothers) used the cannabis plant for textiles, paper and a whole host of beneficial products, the modern era saw the plant being labeled as a dangerous drug, a toxic weed, not fit for anything. Hallum and Hallum Processing has been at the forefront of this re-discovery of the benefits of cannabis oil, and their experiences have taken them all around the nation and now back to Oklahoma to bring a message of hope and healing. Their motto is ACE: Affordability, Compassion, Education.

    Mark Fergeson - Fulcrum Hormone & Wellness Clinic in OKC

    Mark Fergeson - Fulcrum Hormone & Wellness Clinic in OKC

    When Nurse Practitioner Mark Fergeson severely damaged his knee during a trip to Colorado to help his son return home from college, he KNEW he would have plenty of time to think about family and work.  And that's just what he did - while continuing to work. During a rare slow moment at his typically busy night shift in the Emergency Room of a major OKC hospital, Mark began thinking about his family, their medical needs and the community around him. He knew there was a need in OKC for a safe and non-judgmental clinic that provided hormonal treatments for men, women and transgender patients. He thought about how his son had not been well-served with his hormonal needs, and that began his quest to find the perfect safe medical place. He couldn't find it. So he and his wife, along with contributions from extended family, decided that THEY would create a medical clinic that would serve the Oklahoma community. Along the way, a pandemic happened, their practice grew, and they went beyond hormonal treatments when they found a huge need in the PANS and PANDAS community. Listen in as Mark discusses their family, their search for safe treatments, and how autoimmune diseases have now become such a huge part of the service at Fulcrum Hormone & Wellness Clinic.

    Ankrum Institute's founder discusses the body, training for a paradigm shift in bodywork and a few AHA! moments.

    Ankrum Institute's founder discusses the body, training for a paradigm shift in bodywork and a few AHA! moments.

    What does it mean to have a paradigm shift? Leigh Ankrum, the founder of The Ankrum Institute in Tulsa, Oklahoma, discusses that question and many more. As we talk about her decades of training and the many ways she teaches students, we find out that she believes that every student is also a teacher, and as she teaches, she is also a student. Each year, classes at The Ankrum Institute fill up; so she has decided to open up even more trainings throughout the year to meet the need and desire of her prospective students. When Ankrum talks, you can hear the passion and joy in her voice. She shares that with her students and the people who come to see her for guidance in their healing journey. Ankrum believes we need to listen to our bodies, because the secrets of healing are inside each of us. Finally, she explains a simple, yet profound idea, about creating space for good to enter into our lives. Enjoy my chat with Leigh Ankrum!
