85: People Pleasing

4/1/2021
Did you know that people pleasing behaviors are fear-based? And most fear-based behaviors have roots in trauma. People pleasing can definitely stem from trauma. Nobody chooses to be a people-pleaser. Listen to find out what it's all about, where it comes from, what to do about it and what to if you're not ready to accept if you might be a people-pleaser.

How can you improve eating habits if you're never at home?

82: Why "Complaining" is Never Complaining

12/23/2020
Complaining is never really complaining. Think about that. Today's episode is short and sweet, but you might be able to learn a lot about having empathy. It's pretty easy to recall a time when you or someone else said "stop complaining". As the title of the show states, complaining is never really about just the complaint itself. Yet we often classify a complaint as simply that. There is a desire inside of every complaint. There is an unmet need. I don’t see complaints. Ever,...

80: Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury

11/18/2020
Let's talk about concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). I think this is important stuff to have a baseline knowledge of this because you truly never know if someone in your life will have an accident and you might not have immediate access to doctors. The first thing people think of when they hear the word concussion is probably football or car accidents. From all of my years of being on dance teams at various football games, it's always a serious matter when you see...

77: Dealing With Doctors and Medical Gaslighting (Part 1 of 2)

10/28/2020
Have you or a loved one have ever been undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or had doctors dismiss your very, very real symptoms? That's medical gaslighting. It's harmful and all too common. No matter how much you like a certain doctor, how much you trust them, how highly recommended they are, or even if they're said to have the top credentials in the world, I think that society as a whole could use a dose of trusting doctors slightly less. I know that might be a hard pill to swallow for some...

75: Be Your Own Best Health Advocate: How I was Misled By This Phrase

10/7/2020
What does it truly mean to "be your own best health advocate"? I thought I knew, but it wasn't until my health was at rock bottom that I was forced to realize what it really meant. If you're thinking to yourself that it seems pretty obvious how you should be your own best health advocate, I hope you'll listen with an open mind because it goes deeper than you might initially think. Looking back at my own health timeline I can see that I was never really my own best health advocate...

74: Carrageenan: A Common Food Additive That Might Affect Your Health

9/30/2020
Today's topic is carrageenan. It's a plant-based ingredient that's in many foods and a lot of people can also have a sensitivity to it. For those who are affected, they're often in the dark as to what the culprit of their discomfort is. That's why I'm bringing this to your attention today. Carrageenan is something that's added to foods and pharmaceuticals to emulsify them, to thicken liquids, or to give them a gel-like consistency. Carrageenan itself comes from red edible seaweed, or...

73: Why It Feels Good to Move: Magic in our Molecules

9/16/2020
Have you ever heard of the hope molecule? It's pretty cool. You already know that when it comes to movement, something is better than nothing. You've also probably heard of endorphins, and we know that serotonin is our happiness hormone, so it's good to do things that give you an extra hit of serotonin such as getting exercise, meditating, or spending time in nature. But there's more to it. Why does it feel so great most of the time to sweat, and push limits, and move heavy things,...

72: Why Some Doctors Say That Adrenal Fatigue Isn't Real

9/2/2020
In episode 9 I talked about adrenal fatigue and I'm long overdue for a continuation of that. Today I'm explaining why many doctors say that adrenal fatigue simply doesn't exist. If you don't have adrenal fatigue or don't think it applies to you, here's why I want you to keep listening: many topics that I cover are precursors to autoimmune conditions that can be avoided or reversed without medical interventions. Roughly 1 in 4 people are living with 1 or more autoimmune conditions right...

71: Befriending Stress Before Hitting Rock Bottom

8/20/2020
Stress. Never heard of it? I'm totally joking because we all know about regular-schmegular stress, but what about Eustress? Or pre-traumatic stress? I used to be THE worst person I knew when it came to dealing with stress, but I have changed that quite a lot. Having an autoimmune disease forced me to wake up and see how truly destructive stress was for my health. I'm sharing the story of my personal rock bottom with stress in my life and how I started to turn things around. If you tend...

There's probably something about the format that simply isn't a match for your personality type to stay interested and committed. What happens if you're not interested and committed? Your chances of sticking...

Trauma responses and trauma bonds are two things that tend to become addictive to someone who's experienced trauma for two big reasons. First, it's familiar.
