    EP291: Biohacking with Steam & Ice: It’s Unlike Anything Else

    EP291: Biohacking with Steam & Ice: It’s Unlike Anything Else

    Home sweet home. Sometimes it’s just more economical or convenient to stay home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still take steps to feeling more alive than you ever have from the comfort of home. Today we are talking about hot and cold therapy, but not the gel pack you put in your microwave or freezer. Come on, this is Part 4 of the biohacking series! In today’s episode, Rachael gets steamy in her garage and dilates her blood vessels in a portable sauna and Kelsea cools down in a portable cold plunge tub in her yard.

    A special thanks goes out to Community member Heather for asking us how to go about using the sauna and cold plunge together for maximum benefits. We got you! Alternating between hot and cold water to provide physical and mental benefits is a thing! And it’s called contrast therapy. Want to know more? Listen to Kelsea and Rachael’s honest reviews of the wallet friendly SaunaBox and Cold Plunge Bundle.

    REMEMBER: ALWAYS TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY NEW HOT/COLD THERAPY TECHNIQUES

    (00:13:15) What is contrast therapy, how do you do it, and what are the benefits?

    (00:20:33) Importance of meeting your threshold for effective hot and cold therapy.

    (00:28:15) Kelsea’s honest review of the cold plunge tub by SaunaBox

    (00:31:14) Cold plunge tub set up, mobility, value, space, convenience, stability

    EP290 You Asked: How Do I Stop Stress Eating?

    EP290 You Asked: How Do I Stop Stress Eating?

    One of our most asked questions is: How do I stop stress eating? We have the answer! But we also have the anti-answer. Confused? Stress eating is absolutely a behavior that we can exhibit in an unbalanced way, but it's also NOT an unnatural behavior or something that makes you broken. Guess what..turning to food as a form of comfort or joy is completely NORMAL! Let’s identify our individual feelings instead of putting them all in the stress bucket. Only then can we use our tools to deal with them instead of reaching for that bag of chips every time. 

    Are you stressed? Or are you bored, or sad, or angry or anxious? You can plan for these emotions and respond with go-to tools. Food can certainly help but don’t let it be your only response. And there are several players in this game: gender, genetics, social conditioning, metabolism, gut health, to name a few. So stop blaming your willpower! It’s not that simple. And remember: you always deserve food. If you make it a big deal in your mind that’s FAR more damaging than what you binged. So be kind and serve yourself a healing helping of coping mechanisms.



    (00:00:00) Introduction

    (00:13:36) The shame, disassociation and misinformation surrounding stress eating

    (00:19:22) Normalizing food as comfort and making sure it’s not the only tool for stress relief

    (00:24:16) Pause to identify your feelings and the discomfort you are looking to avoid

    (00:29:30) The science behind why people stress eat

    (00:37:42) Identifying balanced coping mechanisms when dealing with stressful events

    (00:40:20) The role gender, genetics and social conditioning plays

    (00:49:20) Mindful eating, the experience of food and dopamine

    (00:54:54) Rachael’s set it and forget it tools for responding to her named feelings

    (01:02:18) Kelsea’s challenge to you right now to identify your coping mechanisms

    EP289 How to Biohack Menopause with Zora Benhamou

    Welcome to Part 3 of our journey into biohacking. If you missed parts one and two, no worries, this isn’t about a distant galaxy far, far away, it’s all about YOU! Today we focus on a topic relevant to women under 50, and women over 50: Menopause. (And not just women approaching 50, you should know this at ANY AGE!) We have a remarkable guest on the podcast, Zora Benhamou, a gerontologist, biohacker, host of the Hack My Age Podcast, and advocate for women’s health during the menopause journey, which may begin much earlier than you think. 

    Zora speaks 6 languages and has traveled to more than 50 countries in her quest to answer the question: What does it mean to biohack menopause? She’s with us today to squash some myths surrounding menopause, clarify the stages, discuss hormones and hormone therapy and the most beneficial workout for women in their journey. Do you know your baseline? Want to take responsibility for your health? Don’t wait. Now is the time to do it.

    EP287 Why Don’t You Trust Yourself? We Thought We Should Ask You Again

    EP287 Why Don’t You Trust Yourself? We Thought We Should Ask You Again

    Have you ever joked about not trusting yourself? Most of us have when confronted with something we told ourselves we wouldn’t do. This episode was originally aired in 2022 and it’s worth revisiting because breaking promises we make with ourselves feels bad and the summer can be especially challenging when it comes to showing up for yourself. So let’s take another look at why we don’t trust ourselves in the first place, and how a lack of confidence can give away your power. Listen for tips on how to set sustainable goals, engage in positive self-talk, and be less affected by the things people around you say. It may not happen overnight and that’s ok. Setting an intention and following through doesn’t always turn out the way you planned. That’s ok too!  Start TODAY on rebuilding that trust. We believe in you!

    (00:27:30) Being unaffected by the comments of the people around you

    (00:29:09) Setting an intention with yourself and following through doesn’t have to look perfect

    (00:33:01) How to pivot and not get stuck when it’s not your fault, but it is your responsibility

Great content. Sound is weird.

The content is so fantastic but the mics seem to really be low quality causing echo or reverb that’s unpleasant.
