    Grounding Yourself During Times of Struggle With Ash Johns

    Grounding Yourself During Times of Struggle With Ash Johns

    Welcome to Episode 9 of Season 8 of The PCOS Revolution Podcast: Grounding Yourself During Times of Struggle With Ash Johns

    Today I have the honor of speaking with Ash Johns, a Conscious Business Strategist, Certified PsychoSpiritual Life Coach, and skilled Ancestral Healer living at the intersection of creativity, spirituality and business. After walking away from 10+ years in advertising and branding to run a eight-figure women’s retreat in Southeast Asia, Ash believes our greatest recurring trauma—both personally and collectively—is in how we’ve been taught to survive in this world, and that the key to thriving lies in returning to our roots.

    We're going deep today to give you the tools to ignite the healer within, and to reconnect with your purpose on this planet. Never has this message been needed to be heard more than now, and I encourage you to listen to this episode more than once to gain a bigger perspective on how to ground yourself when times get rough. 

    As an added bonus and to make this easier, Ash has recorded a special guided meditation for our listeners here: https://www.ashleyjohns.com/pcos-revolution-podcast-free-meditation

    You can learn more about Ash at ashleyjohns.com, @ashinspires on Instagram and Facebook

    I hope you enjoy listening and sharing this very special episode and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on our weekly Instagram Live's each Wednesday at https://www.instagram.com/flcompletewellness/

    Navigating the Changing Stages of PCOS With Dr. Rashmi Kudesia

    Welcome to Episode 7 of Season 8 of The PCOS Revolution Podcast: Navigating the Changing Stages of PCOS With Dr. Rashmi Kudesia

    Today we’re speaking with Dr. Rashmi Kudesia of CCRM Fertility Houston on the changes that can happen with PCOS in different stages of our lives, and how different symptoms may take priority at different times in our lives. These challenges can manifest as irregular cycles as a teen, hirsutism or weight management later on, and ultimately infertility. We’ll also speak about the reassuring data on how we can mitigate the long-term health impacts of PCOS by holistic lifestyle management in the reproductive years.

    About our guest: Rashmi Kudesia, M.D., M.Sc., is a double board-certified reproductive endocrinologist & infertility (REI) specialist at CCRM Fertility Houston in Houston, Texas. She serves as the Site Director for CCRM Houston – Sugar Land and Director of Patient Education, as well as Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Houston Methodist Hospital.

    Dr. Kudesia completed her Baccalaureate degree in Biology & Medicine magna cum laude from Brown University, and her M.D. with honors from the Duke University School of Medicine, where she was selected into a clinical research training program co-sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. Her OB/GYN residency training was at the New York Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center, followed by REI fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center, alongside a Masters’ of Science degree in Clinical Research Methods. She subsequently served as a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, as well as the Research Rotational Director for the REI fellowship, and Medical Director of the Brooklyn office of the Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York.

    Dr. Kudesia has held many national leadership roles in organized medicine, including her current roles as Chair-Elect of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine’s (ASRM) Women’s Council, and the ASRM Young Physician Delegate to the American Medical Association. She has presented scientific research nationally and internationally, and received multiple awards and grants. She regularly publishes peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and enjoys teaching the Houston-area OB/GYN residents and medical students. She actively promotes women’s health advocacy through community work and social media.

    Going Keto-Green To Flip the PCOS Perimenopausal Switch With Dr. Anna Cabeca

    Going Keto-Green To Flip the PCOS Perimenopausal Switch With Dr. Anna Cabeca

    Welcome to Episode 6 of Season 8 of The PCOS Revolution Podcast: Going Keto-Green To Flip the PCOS Perimenopausal Switch With Dr. Anna Cabeca

    Today I have with me Dr. Anna Cabeca, who's an expert in women's health and functional medicine. She's an Emory University trained and board-certified gynecologist and obstetrician and she's also certified in integrative medicine and anti-aging/regenerative medicine. She specializes in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and their natural alternatives, and she also focuses on successful menopause and age management medicine. Dr. Cabeca's years of experience in her private practice, along with her own journey of transformation, has placed her as one of the most in-demand speakers regarding restorative health and women's health issues.

    In this episode, we discuss how hormone production dips as a woman ages, leading to increased visceral fat which is especially difficult for women with PCOS. By pairing keto-diet staples with foods that bring the body’s pH to a more alkaline level, you can shed belly fat more easily while balancing the hormones responsible for that bulkier midsection in the first place. And by fueling your brain with ketones—like rocket fuel instead of gasoline—you’ll make better decisions, including healthier choices for what to eat. See our episode page to grab her free ebooks at https://www.floridacompletewellness.com/podcasts and start implementing these strategies right away!
