061: An Introduction to CranialSacral Therapy with Mindy Totten

When looking for the root causes of illnesses and even skin problems like acne, eczema or even psoriasis, you always want to look at one’s diet, gut health, what kinds of toxins they’re exposed to, and the root cause of all root causes - stress! You can avoid foods that cause inflammation, avoid using products with harmful ingredients, but when we need stress relief we typically head straight to the spa for a massage. #AmIright? But there’s other types of “body work” and in this episode,...

057: How to Support A Loved One with Cancer

There have been too many times when I’ve found out that someone that I cared about was diagnosed with cancer and I didn’t know what to say or what to do that would be appropriate and supportive. I didn’t want to sound trite or generic. I didn’t want to overstep my boundaries, especially if it wasn’t a close family member. And I certainly didn’t want to be intrusive. But I genuinely wanted to do something, yet there were times when I ended up doing nothing. In this episode, Katie...

How many times have you made an appointment to see your doctor, only to have the whole visit last approximately 7-10 minutes? And you found yourself leaving thinking, “that’s it?!"

053: Defining Clean Eating and How to Put It Into Practice

“I’m already eating clean?” is a response I get from a lot of people, who are working in improving their health but still struggling. When I review how they're eating, I see gaps between their perceptions of “eating clean” versus what it actually means, and I’ve come to realize that many people just don’t understand what clean eating is and then wonder why they aren’t seeing the progress they’re expecting. In this episode, I share: How I define clean eatingWhat foods to avoidHow to put it...

Have you ever had a health problem come up so you researched to see what might help?

050: Root Causes of Skin Problems & A Four-Dimensional Functional Approach

The conventional two-dimensional approach to treating skin issues like acne is typically topical creams, along with pharmaceuticals like antibiotics or birth control pills. The problem with this approach is that these things only suppress the symptoms while failing to address the underlying root causes of WHY these problems are happening. And even more problematic are the more significant health issues that these treatments can lead to. In this episode, I’m discussing the what the...


049: Skincare Myths: Why the Conventional Approach Doesn't Work

At some point in your life, whether during puberty, adolescence, or even well into adulthood, that acne, or other skin issues became a big concern for you.
