5 Tips To Change Your Health Without Changing What You Eat

10/16/2017
More
Two years ago I found myself on a high, or a high in the world of nutritionist status. I had finally figured out an eating plan that seemed to be working. I had energy {or so I thought}, I had lost the majority of the baby weight I carried for over a year and I had just completed a half marathon. Yet, what I didn’t realize that while my external appearance seemed to be paying off my internal show was a mess. Stressed, overworked, fatigued and ready to buckle I didn’t realize that on this...

#056: Is Your Diet Causing Pain with Dr. Joe Tatta

8/9/2017
More
Back pain runs in my family. In fact, I'm not immune to it having my own share of back struggles well before the age of 30. I often question what my life will be like in 30 years if I already struggle with pain. I have a feeling I'm not alone. Pain is everywhere and is often just chalked up to the 'aging' process, but what if there was a way to retrain your brain to overcome pain? I interviewed a leading expert in the pain field, Dr. Joe Tatta, and his response will blow your mind! Yes,...

#055: How I Got My Health Back with Dr. Terri Cooper

7/12/2017
More
I have yet to talk much about the nitty-gritty of losing my health and fighting to get it back. Actually it's been less of a fight and more of a learning process. The short story is I was doing everything right, eating well, exercising and living the traditional busy life of hustle. Not to mention raising three little girls all under the age of six. I was doing it, chasing the shiny objects all while forgetting the essentials of life. I was giving, going, doing and becoming. I was trying...

Daily Habits for Increased Happiness

6/29/2017
More
Unhappiness. Some say it's our greatest epidemic of our day. In fact, statistics show that nearly 50% of Americans are unhappy at work and less than one-third of people describe themselves as "very happy." That means that nearly 70% of the American population are considered unhappy. To me, this is one of the most startling statistics we are faced with. Not just because the majority of the population is walking around in a less than exciting trance, but that this is a direct relationship...

#053: The Easy Way to Get Rid of Body Odor

6/1/2017
More
A question I've pondered all the way back to my pre-adolescent phase; how to get rid of body odor? The thought {and smell} of body odor takes me back to my 6th grade classroom. The time and place when everyone starts to smell but no one knows how to take care of it. Only to soon be masked through the 7th and 8th grade by body sprays, perfume, cologne and every other measure that is humanly possible to take away the awkward conversation of body odor. I'm sure we've all had our fair share...

Collagen: The Powerful Supplement That Can Heal Your Body

5/24/2017

There is a lot of hype around detox diets and cleanses. While the stigma holds out that most detox for a quick weight loss scheme, I think it is due time we talk about how detoxing is so much more than that. In fact, it is essential and critical that our body detoxify itself daily. The good news is we have plenty of mechanisms to help us do this. The bad news is the "traditional" lifestyle can slow this process down, making our body slow, sluggish and even clogged. Today we are going to...

3/23/2017

Slowing down and success generally aren't found in the same sentence. The way of the world seems to be, do more - be more, work longer, work harder and just hustle. While I'm not saying that we shouldn't be doing any of those, I think we must also consider why slowing down could be your key to success. On todays podcast episode we uncover why nothing seems to be working, even though you are doing everything right. We also talk about what under-eating and over exercising are doing to our...

#044: How To Get Your Life Back When Nothing Goes As Planned

1/4/2017
More
If we're honest with ourselves goal setting, resolution making and planning are often times just great thoughts. In my own life I've experienced this on one too many occasions. Spending hours planning but never following through with the plan. Or better yet, setting unrealistic expectations (a.k.a. goals) that will never have a possibility of getting met. Last year was a great example. I was going to conquer the world. Okay, maybe not the world, but I had set some pretty high goals that...
