I did all the right things to prevent getting cancer. A certified health coach, nutritionist & wellness speaker, I thought I’d be the last person to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Why did I still get it? Was there something else I could have done to prevent it?

A couple years later, I am grateful to be cancer-free and now I’m on a mission to share everything I’ve learned about mitigating risk, managing symptoms, and staying mentally well when bad things happen – even if you “did everything right!”

‘Why Did I Get Cancer‘ features:
• Eye-opening information about health/cancer risks that surround us (and solutions to mitigate risks)
• Health & lifestyle tips to lower risk (easier and quicker than you’d think!)
• Inexpensive solutions for lowering cancer risk

    62. Do We Need to Stop Burning Candles? The Truth About EDCs.

    62. Do We Need to Stop Burning Candles? The Truth About EDCs.

    What are EDCs and why should you care about them? 
    Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) are a group of compounds that, despite being unnoticeable, have the potential to disrupt the delicate balance of our endocrine system. These seemingly harmless substances are part of our daily lives, from the products we use to the food we consume. EDCs lurk in unexpected places, impacting hormonal functions and, consequently, our overall well-being.
    I’ve invited environmental toxins and green living expert Deborah de Moulpied onto the show to give us the 411 on all things EDCs.
    Stick around to learn where these toxic chemicals are hiding in our daily lives and how we can minimize our exposure.

    61. RE-RELEASE: Is Tap Water Safe to Drink?

    61. RE-RELEASE: Is Tap Water Safe to Drink?

    61. RE-RELEASE: Is Tap Water Safe to Drink?
    A candid conversation with a toxins lawyer and health coach
    If you're going to only listen to one of my podcast episodes this year, THIS IS THE ONE!
    Wendy is a Toxins Lawyer and clean-living coach, and we had a candid and, at times, frightening conversation about tap water and cancer risk.
    Before cancer, I would say that I was suspicious but still trusting; for example, if the water was coming out of my tap, I believed the government was doing its job to keep us safe.
    Then the train derailed in Ohio, and within days the local government was telling its citizens the water was just fine. 
    I'm not a water expert, but I know enough to figure out that the water is unfit for consumption when thousands of chemicals get dumped into local waterways.
    Wendy explained that when the clean water act was signed in 1974 that it worked well for the next 15 years. Then the local water companies decided they couldn't keep up with the water testing regulations, so the clean water act was amended. The EPA left it up to the discretion of individual water agencies to test or not test.
    Since then, only two additional contaminants have been added to the list of chemicals to be aware of. And let's be honest; new chemicals are being created yearly in our country. Sadly, this is an example of buyer beware; we can no longer trust the water from our tap.
    Here are my questions:
    1. What's in my local water?
       Go to this site to check out what contaminants might be in your local tap: EWG Tap Water Database.
    2. What can we do to drink water without contaminants?
       Filter, filter, filter! Wendy discusses her fav filters in this podcast episode.
    3. How much is this going to cost me?
       Wendy says this is the most critical first step to detoxing, so it will cost money; UGH! But she has multiple suggestions for filters at a variety of price points.

    I'm picky about fish. I will only purchase wild fish, and yes, I'm that obnoxious person that asks the waitstaff in restaurants where they got the fish! I know that wild is healthier, and this is why I love ButcherBox wild salmon!
    Recent studies show that higher fish consumption is associated with improved immune function. The study, which looked at the cancer-fighting effects of the Mediterranean diet, found that people who reported eating less fish and more red meat showed several common abnormalities in their blood that suggested a higher risk of cancer.
    Wild and smaller fish, such as salmon, are anti-inflammatory and associated with better brain, hormonal, and nervous system health.

    60. Best of 2023

    60. Best of 2023

    Today, let’s explore the two most downloaded episodes of 2023 for the "Why Did I Get Cancer?" podcast! These episodes left a lasting impact on our community and I had a great time going back and relistening to all of the great insights these guests shared.
    The first standout episode featured sleep expert Devin Burke. Devin shed light on the profound connection between sleep and overall well-being. It's not surprising that this episode became a favorite among our audience, as the information provided by Devin was valuable and addressed a common struggle we all share.
    I was a bit surprised to discover the second most downloaded episode, which was an episode that discussed the potential connection between boundaries and cancer. Known for his expertise in personal development and boundaries, Dr. Henry Cloud talked about our issues related to boundaries, codependency, and people-pleasing which could contribute to the risk of cancer. 
    Join me in this review episode as I reflect on the wisdom shared by Devin and Dr. Cloud.

    59. RE-RELEASE: Can the Body Heal Itself from Cancer or Autoimmune Disorders?

    59. RE-RELEASE: Can the Body Heal Itself from Cancer or Autoimmune Disorders?

    I loved my conversation with Holistic Nurse Practitioner Alyssa Siegel.
     
    Alyssa is not afraid to go against big pharma to tell us how to use pharmaceutical alternatives, such as supplements and tinctures.
     
    She believes that the body can heal itself if we create a healthy environment so our bodies can thrive. 
     
    She is in hot pursuit of trying to find out what made her patients ill in the first place; what's the root cause of why they're sick?
     
    She believes that the body is designed to heal itself and that you can recover if you can lower your toxin load. She also talks about the emotional aspect of illness and how that can be a considerable contributor to staying sick.
     
    She was also very candid that the food most of us consume is very inflammatory, and it's difficult to heal when your body is in a state of inflammation.
     
    She offered doable health hacks so that your body can heal itself!
