    #124 Understanding Fatty Liver Disease

    #124 Understanding Fatty Liver Disease

    What the heck is fatty liver disease? I get that question all the time from my patients. The disease is gaining in popularity and is on the rise especially in younger women. People get confused by the term fatty liver and they think it means that they are fat-No it means that your liver has an overabundance of fat in it, causing it to not perform as well as it should be. While it is common for women who are overweight and have it, it can come from other things such as genetics, having diabetes, or high triglycerides.
    25 %-30% of the population has some form of fatty liver disease. Women out rank men by a little when it comes to this disease.
    Most people don’t even know they have it until they come in for a physical and have regular lab work done.
    So, what is it and how does one get rid of it- well my friend I’m glad that you asked as that is what today’s episode is all about.
    We dive into:
    What are the 3 types of fatty liver disease
    What foods to avoid if you have it
    Food you should be focusing on
    Herbs to help cleanse your liver
    Superfoods you should be including in your diet
    And lastly detox drinks to help flush your liver

    #123 5 Questions To Determine If A Change Is A Good Idea

    #123 5 Questions To Determine If A Change Is A Good Idea

    Change is synonymous with living. It may come into our lives out of the blue and take us by surprise. Other times you know it’s coming and you have time to prepare.
    Yet even though change may be our choice, it still may feel scary and overwhelming. You may find yourself wondering: should I make the change or not?
    To help you out, I put together a list of five questions to determine if a situation is something you can change. These questions are designed to make you feel more in control of your life. They can help you decide which situations you should change, and which aren’t worth your time or effort.
    You might even find that the 5 questions aren’t the ones you thought you should be asking yourself.
    I’d love to hear your thoughts. Come on over at chat with me on Instagram at

    #122 Self Advocacy Is Your Health Right

    #122 Self Advocacy Is Your Health Right

    This episode is unscripted and comes from my heart. It’s about an issue that I am so passionate about and that is at the core of my mission and who I am as a women’s healthcare provider.
    There are so many things out in the world today that divide us, not always by our own accord but ones that are driven at a much higher level.
    Throughout world history disparity among people is what has caused Nations to fall.
    This past 1 1/2 we as a body of people have seen much disparity and it has caused a huge cavern of divide that we may not recover from as a Nation of people.
    First the election, then all racial issues, mixed in with a worldwide pandemic, to get vaccinated or not, to stay away from people who got vaccinated, and who knows what is next.
    Women’s health as a pillar should stand alone and not have any agenda attached to it, what one woman sees as her self advocacy right is her right and that decision should be respected no matter even if it differs from our own.
    If we don’t stand together to disrupt the archaic outdated notions that women’s health education now falls under then how are we ever going to foster better health care changes for the entire body called Women.
    That’s what I am discussing in today's show.

    #121 Pandemic Weight Gain: How To Lose It

    #121 Pandemic Weight Gain: How To Lose It

    According to a poll by the American Psychological Association, 61% of U.S. adults reported undesired weight change since the pandemic began.
    The results, released in March 2021, showed that during the pandemic, 42% of respondents gained unwanted weight – 29 pounds on average – and nearly 10% of those people gained more than 50 pounds. On the flip side, nearly 18% of Americans said they experienced unwanted weight loss – on average, a loss of 26 pounds.
    Another study, published on March 22, 2021, assessed weight change in 269 people from February to June 2020. The researchers found, on average, that people gained a steady 1.5 pounds per month.
     
    When you have a goal of losing weight, your mindset is everything. Unfortunately, it is often the last thing on people’s minds (pun intended). When you start losing weight, you might be so fixated on calories or macros, what you can eat, what you can’t, and how often you exercise, that you don’t consider the emotional and mental changes.
     
    Losing weight is on many people’s minds but wanting to lose weight and actually doing it effectively are two entirely different things. There is so much information out there, that it becomes overwhelming. Different diets, workout plans, structured plans like WW or Keto, just counting calories or carbs, and so much more.
     
    It also goes beyond just figuring out which method of weight loss to go with, but the obsession and unhealthy habits that having a diet mindset can create. So, in today’s podcast I want to talk to you why you should ditch the typical diet mindset and work on developing a healthy mindset about weight loss instead.
    We explore the following:
    Ditching the diet mindset
    Developing a better solution
    Yo-Yo dieting
    Incorporating healthy habits for sustained weight loss
    Benefits of weight loss
    Things to do and never do when trying to lose weight

    #120 5 Key Reasons To Eat A Whole Food Diet

    #120 5 Key Reasons To Eat A Whole Food Diet

    The term “whole foods'' is thrown around a lot these days. While most of us are aware that whole foods are the way to go as it pertains to health and wellness, the exact definition is somewhat obscured. A whole food is any food product that remains in its natural form, free of any artificial additives, preservatives, or other man made ingredients. Examples include organic fruits and vegetables.
    The mainstream diet of today’s society has significantly strayed away from a whole foods approach. Many of the food products we consume are a far cry from their original form, loaded with harmful preservatives and added sweeteners. There is undoubtedly a correlation between this type of diet and the prevalence of many chronic health conditions such as obesity and diabetes.
    In this podcast, we will discuss 5 reasons why a diet centered on whole foods is a vastly superior way of fueling your body with the nutrients it needs to function optimally.
    We’ll explore the following benefits
    Full Nutritional BenefitsSignificantly less sugarMore fiber, better gut healthReduce systemic inflammationPay the grocery store, not your medical provider
