Holy guacamole was Lara an absolute WEALTH of information! She dropped all the non-toxic knowledge bombs on everything from parabens and phthalates to fire retardants to water filters. We talked about “green washing” and how some of our healthy products are actually not so much as well as how things like “BPA free” lead us to feel safer about that water bottle but what replaced the BPA can be as bad or even worse. Yikes, right?

But before we all freak out we can take Lara’s level headed approach to change what we can control instead of flipping out about what we can’t. We live in the modern world and this stuff is part of our life, but Lara talked us through a step by step way to start to make a difference in your environment, home and health.

OK can we just say that Debra was an absolute delight to have on the show?? She provides such an empowering option to women frustrated with lack of results with dieting and exercise as hormones start to wane with perimenopause and menopause. Debra shares her midlife crisis story and how that helped her harness her background in Exercise Science and Exercise Psychology into a dedication to helping women that like her that found themselves at this crossroads where what used to work didn’t anymore, where stress all of a sudden became an even bigger deal and where women start to feel less at home in their bodies.

 

Of all the questions we receive, losing weight after menopause or during perimenopause by far rank at the top. Women simply have to do things differently during this time and we covered it from weights to walking to what to eat in this episode.

With finding our genetic mutations (or rather our genetic polymorphisms) just a click away these days, in this episode we interview leading epigenetic expert Dr. Ben Lynch, ND about what to do with this information. 

One of the most common polymorphisms is MTHFR, hear Dr. Lynch tell us what this gene does, why it's becoming more common to have issues with it and just how big a deal it is if you have it. We discuss how genes are the computer and our lifestyle and environment are all the software, applications and "stuff" we load up on to our computer (great analogy Dr Ben!). So you can see where your power is to effect the hand you were dealt.

We ask Dr Lynch if everyone should run out and get a 23andme test and know all of their genetic issues, is the best thing to do when you have MTHFR to start taking "MTHFR approved supplements" like l-methyl-folate and the top three things we can all do to improve our home environment to help our genetics. 

And stay tuned for Dr Lynch's new book out early 2018 called Dirty Genes. You can bet we're going to be grabbing it! Learn more about Dr Lynch here.

Today we’re back answering your questions and we kicked it off with a great one from a listener who like us is a working mama asking: how do you two do it all? Well, as you can imagine we shared the not so pretty behind the scenes look at how we juggle it all, how we dial it up in some areas and down in others (only to flip flop that next week) and where we get it right with food, sleep and exercise and where we still struggle. 

 

Next we had big, meaty question about food allergies vs. sensitivities, the problem with elimination foods especially if you have a very reactive system and what to do when you’d rather just eat foods that bother your system because it just feels too dang hard to manage it all.  We spent over thirty minutes digging deep into this question because it touched on oh so much of what we know so many women struggle with.

 

And finally there are SPOTS STILL OPEN for our retreat! Get registered for this event because we CANNOT wait to see you in person in April. Details here.

Good vibes only today! Not that we ever don't keep it all good right? But today we have a good vibe expert! 

The absolutely lovely Shana Ekedal, a holistic nutrition expert and transformation coach joins us on this episode and we meandered through comparison, showing up in our lives more fully, and all about FEAR. Shana talked about the fear box and how to break out of it one step at a time.  This alone is worth the listen but Shana also gave some totally unique insights on weight loss that you won't want to miss.
