Adrenal “fatigue”…is it even real? Sarah and Dr Brooke certainly know many women that are too tired to get out of bed every morning and even more that are simply to wiped out to do anything more than survive let alone thrive, but do they really have tired adrenals? You're feeling lousy, you've got every symptom on every blog about adrenal fatigue, but how do you really know what’s wrong and how do you fix it? How about when you’ve tried to heal your adrenals, but you still don't feel better? How long does it take? Does it matter which stage you’re in? Wondering if you need DHEA or rhodiola – or both? Sarah and Dr Brooke dig way into this controversial topic and discuss what may be going on beyond your adrenals and stress hormones, why testing and retesting is oh so important, hidden sources of stress, other issues that frequently arise at the same time as adrenal trouble and a few very simple things that always seem to go untreated when it comes to adrenal health.  Tune in ladies, this is a great episode and we hope you’ll feel better after listening.

In this episode, Sarah and Dr Brooke welcome physical therapist and women’s health expert, Brianne Grogan. Women need to understand, celebrate and be able to comfortably talk about their amazing, complex female body as some funky stuff can happen postpartum or from training inappropriately. Spoiler Alert:  it’s never normal or commendable to pee when you exercise.  Learn about all aspects of abdominal separation (diastasis recti) and what actually makes up your pelvic floor and core as well as how you can make yours stronger. Sidestep common exercise mistakes made after giving birth or anytime your core, pelvic floor or alignment is off. We talk up close and personal about our ladybits after having babies, abdominal wraps and waist trainers, and why we need to treat birth as a trauma (albeit a beautiful one) to a woman’s body. Some intimate topics are broached – like Dr Brooke’s uterine prolapse – and some less conventional stuff come up like chakras and we go there with all of it. And after listening to this episode, if you see Sarah or Dr Brooke circling their hips at the grocery store, you’ll know why.

Parenting, is there anything harder? As mothers we're judged on everything from what we feed our kids to where we send them to school. We are under the microscope for our choices on how to nurture, discipline and guide our children. Like most mothers, both Sarah and Dr Brooke have been praised and criticized for the choices they've made with their families. In this episode we pull the curtain way back and show you exactly what is important to use when it comes to our kids. With Sarah homeschooling her boys in Northern California and Dr Brooke raising her girls in New York City we have some shared perspectives but very different experiences - and we on totally different ends of the mothering experience. Sarah has been a mother for twenty years and Dr Brooke is pretty much at the starting gate with two toddlers. And maybe, just maybe, there will be an arranged marriage between Sarah's youngest and Dr Brooke's oldest...stay tuned.

In this episode, Dr Brooke and Sarah are joined by the lovely, strong Molly Galbraith. We talk about women and strength training, debunk a few myths and help you sidestep common mistakes we all see women making with their training. But as you'll quickly see what the three of us really get fired up about is helping women not fall prey to disempowering messages by the media and the multi-billion dollar weight loss industry which Molly's organization, Girls Gone Strong, believes preys on women's insecurities for profit. On this show we discuss the importance of each woman using fitness to be more instead of less, why every woman needs to define what is right for her and her her body and how to marry her goals of lifestyle, health, performance and aesthetics without spending hours in the gym or wrecking her hormones. We offer advice on crafting better messages for yourself and your children around body image, exercise and self-care. Molly talks about her viral bikini photo from earlier this year and the shocking fact that it was international news that a woman was content and happy with her body.
