Balance Your Immune System for Optimal Health with Dr. Heather Moday
Just what is an immune system? I mean, if I asked you to point to where your immune system lived in your body, where would you point? We all have an immune system, but unless you’re an immunologist, pinpointing and defining it can be tricky. But in this post Covid world we all live in, it’s never been more important to understand our immune system and to take steps to optimize it.
But here’s the thing – we’re all bio-individuals – with different histories and genetic make ups. And what is ideal for your immune system may not be well-suited for me. Some of us have hyperactive immune systems and others have weak immune systems. My guest today is Heather Moday and she is going to help us demystify our individual immune systems and teach us the steps we need to take to create healthy, balanced, optimized immune systems.
Heather is an immunologist trained in both traditional medicine and functional and integrative medicine. She is the founder of the Moday Center where she and her team help people optimize their health and immune systems. Heather is the author of the book titled The Immunotype Breakthrough: You Personalized Plan to Balance You Immune System, Optimize Health, and Build Lifelong Resilience.
In today’s episode Heather is going to help define exactly what an immune system is, how it works, and most importantly what you can do to build the strongest, most resilient immune system possible.

Dump Your Head Trash with Renie Cavallari
Why is it that the voice in our head is so often negative? For many of us our predominant inner voice is downright nasty. We often grab ahold of a negative thought and start building on it, and this often snowballs until we’re completely consumed with negative energy. And these negative thoughts can be directed towards others – including loved ones – or it can be directed towards ourselves.
My guest today has a name for this negative self-talk – she calls it head trash. Head trash loves blame and shame. It criticizes everything and hypes up every possible downside, and the little negative voice in your head takes over – making it harder to connect with other people – or yourself for that matter.
Head trash dulls your shine and limits your full potential. But what if there was a way to silence this critic? What if there was a way to empty your head trash?
My guest today is Renie Cavallari. Renie is an author, speaker, researcher, as well the founder, CEO of Aspire, a global transformational training and culture development company and is also the founder of RCI Institute, an active thinking, executive coaching, and People Technology lab. In addition, Renie is a member of the prestigious National Speakers Association and Entrepreneurs Organization and TrainingIndustry.com named Renie as one of the Top 20 Most Influential Training Professionals. Renie and Aspire won a Stevie Award in the “Most Innovative Company” category 14 years in a row, and in 2020 Renie was awarded a prestigious Lifetime Achievement award.
Join us this week as Renie shares her “own it, shift it, dump it” strategy for dealing with head trash to unlock our full potential.

Be Your Own Hero with Josette Tkacik
What do radical healing, quantum physics, transcendence, spiritual journeys, finding your life’s purpose, and Zumba have in common? On the surface these things don’t seem that interconnected.
But before we get to that, I want to take a minute and talk about preconceived notions. We all have preconceived notions, usually concerning things we know very little about. I know for me personally when I started today’s interview, I had my own preconceived notions of Zumba. If you’re not familiar with Zumba, perhaps you too have your preconceived notions of what Zumba is, of what type of people participate, of what the instructors are like, and whether Zumba would be appropriate for you. If so, I invite you to stick around, because we are going to shatter those preconceived notions, and along the way we’ll cover radical healing, quantum physics, transcendence, spiritual journeys, finding your life’s purpose, and of course Zumba.
My guest today is Josette Tkacik. Josette is globally regarded as the most successful Zumba instructor ever and has been named a medical miracle for self-healing advanced rheumatoid arthritis. Her story and work have been featured on NPR, Zumba.com, The Daily OM, and many more. Join us this week as Josette shares her incredible story of how she overcame crippling rheumatoid arthritis (without drugs) to living her best life. Along the way we’ll dive into radical healing, quantum physics, transcendence, spiritual journeys, finding your life’s purpose… and how these things tie into Zumba!

Optimal Health Through Biohacking with Zora Benhamou
You may have heard the term mind-body connection – but what does that really mean? It means that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively - or negatively - affect our biological functioning. In other words, our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are! And on the flip side, what we eat and how and how much we move can impact our mental state - either positively or negatively, and this results in a complex interrelationship between our minds and bodies.
But in today’s frantic fast-paced world, many of us have lost this fundamental connection with our selves. We’re simply too busy, too stressed out, too dissociated, to be able to “hear” our bodies signals. My guest today wants to change that, and the tool she uses is a modality called Pilates. You’re probably familiar with the term, but how much do you really know about the benefits of a Pilates practice?
My guest today is Emma Jory. Emma is a certified Pilates Instructor, Yoga instructor, and Health Coach, and her passion is helping people reduce pain, improve flexibility, increase core strength and posture, and most of all to help them learn to love their body. Join us this week as Emma shares how – and why - to incorporate Pilates into our life to reconnect with our bodies and live our healthiest lives.

Leveraging Technology for Your Healthiest Future Self with Dr. Drew Taylor
Do you remember the cartoon the Jetsons? How everything seemed so futuristic? And while we’re still aways from flying cars and having Rosie the robot clean our houses and wait on our beckon call, the future is here and it’s incredible. The Jetsons released their first episode 60 years ago back in 1962. Back before the internet. Before cell phones. Before 8 tracks, CDs, VHS tapes or DVDs. Before fax machines. And way before we had the ability to bank your stem cells and cryogenically freeze them for future use.
My guest today is Dr. Drew Taylor. Drew is the co-founder and CEO of Acorn Biolabs, which is a company specializing in helping people preserve their own cells for help them prepare for future needs. Drew was a standout colligate athlete and professional baseball player, but ultimately got his PhD in biomedical engineering and now leads the charge to bringing accessible, non-invasive and affordable live cell collection and preservation to everyone.
Join us this week as Drew shares how he went from a baseball player to CEO of a biomedical startup, and why people like you and me (and our children and grandchildren) should consider banking our cells today for a healthier tomorrow. I started our interview by asking Drew how he got interested in cell banking.

The Podcast I’ve Been Looking For
I recently discovered this podcast while searching for material on building/maintaining muscle for women over 50. Finally, I found a podcast that includes people like me! I’m a 60 year-old fit woman, not a grandma, and my wanting to be strong and fit has NOTHING to do with wanting to pick up grandkids. The guests are inspiring and excellent examples of what’s possible as we get older.
