#273 | MM - Should You Be Eating SOY?

1/24/2022
Many people hear "Plant-Based Diet" and assume "Soy-Based Diet." This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact we, Drs. Ben and Suz, do not consume Soy, except for very rare occasions. That being said, there is TONS of misinformation to dispel when it comes to SOY. In this episode, we talk about soybean cultivation, the GMO issue, various soy-based products, nutritional facts of whole soybeans, and health benefits/risks associated with eating soy. We hope this information empowers you...

#272 | WW - Where to find Freedom

1/19/2022
Freedom is defined as "the state of not being a slave or prisoner" according to Merriam Webster... We happen to feel that it is MUCH more than that. To be fair, that definition is just one of the dictionary's three essential meanings, but let's be real - it's hard to put words on the experience of freedom. While the topic of freedom has become oddly politicized in recent times, we cut right to the heart of the matter in today's episode. We start with the wonderfully empowering quote from...

#270 | WW - The Struggle is NOT Real

1/12/2022
If you are struggling, chances are you are doing more thinking than you realize. We heard a mentor share this wisdom that really resonated as Truth. So often we may slide into struggle without even realizing it. Maybe there are thoughts that "this is difficult" so "I should feel ______." But the truth is, the feeling of struggle or suffering that we bring to a situation is always 100% optional. In this episode, we discuss our tendency to struggle and how we may, in a moment, be set free...

#269 | MM - Cooling Down Menopausal Hot Flashes

1/10/2022
Neither of us has had hot flashes... but we have worked with many people who have, and some who never did. The fact is that hot flashes are common and "normal," but not necessarily natural or healthy. In fact, most symptoms associated with menopause are a sign of liver stress. A stressed liver isn't able to regulate hormones as gracefully as a healthy liver. As a result, signs of hormonal dysregulation can occur. In this episode, we cover the physiologic mechanisms of hot flashes and what...
