Whoa mama are we ever still riding high after our three day retreat in Chico, CA last weekend! We not only finally got to be in the same state but the same house and share the same stage together but most importantly we got to be live, in person with YOU the women this podcast was for.  It was a weekend full of knowledge, connection and perspective shifts spent with our amazing speakers and the incredible women who attended. We are all dipping our toes into the hot water and getting out of our comfort zone, ya know, where all the growth happens, where it’s a bit messy and painful but of course worth it.

 

In this episode we recap the event for those who couldn’t be there and we share our opening talk: The 5 Pillars To A Bigger Better Life. This talk was born out of the need to help women have more energy and to sort out their health so they can be happier, to  set their priorities in a way that is in line with their true values and purpose and to finding their joy and live big.

You asked and we answered! In today’s Q&A we talked about getting pregnant while you’re breastfeeding (with a caveat for women with PCOS), taking cold showers for fat loss and wandered through all aspects of taking fish oil.

 

A theme today was doing stuff you hate for the sake of health or fat loss - is it worth it? Is there a better way? And how to take big picture information like a study on fish oil and apply that to your daily choices of what to eat and vitamins to take. 

 

Few spots available for our retreat and it’s not too late to join us! Get more information at www.sarahfragoso.com or www.betterbydrbrooke.com.

Attention all mamas: we had integrative board certified pediatrician and mama herself, Dr Elisa Song, MD on the show! She shared with us her best evidence based tips for common childhood troubles ranging from fevers to earaches to sniffles. Dr Song gave us some great tips for products you can easily find over the counter to have on hand. As well as some hands on stuff like acupressure and essential oils to use when kiddos are sick and want to be held. So much power in actively helping them feel better!

We also touched on more chronic childhood issues like eczema, ADHD, autism and discussed the alarming rise in autoimmunity in children and what we can do about it. And perhaps our favorite part of the show was talking about how to help kids manage their stress - tough huh? Dr Song had some great tips and some excellent book suggestions:

  1. Maureen Garth’s series of meditation books for young children called Starbright, Moonbeam, Earthlight, and Sunshine are wonderful stories that teach relaxation through metaphor and visualization.
  2. The Goodnight Caterpillar: A children’s relaxation story by Lori Lite is a beautiful story of a girl who teaches a very anxious caterpillar how to slowly relax and unwind his legs, arms, body and mind, and teaches progressive relaxation to kids in a simple yet very effective way.
  3. Dreaming of Ponies by Lori Lite is available as an audio CD or MP3. Lori guides kids through meditations to learn progressive relaxation, breathing, and calming techniques for bedtime and everyday stress.
  4. Still Quiet Place: Mindfulness for young children and Still Quiet Place: Mindfulness for teens by Dr. Amy Saltzman, are available as audio CDs or MP3. Dr. Saltzman guides kids of all ages through various, short mindfulness exercises that are calming and easy to implement.
  5. What To Do When You Worry too Much by Dr. Dawn Huebner is a must read for any child to learn cognitive-behavioral techniques to use his brain to manage his worries.
  6. Julie Lythcott-Haims’ How to Raise an Adult and Jessica Lahey’s The Gift of Failure are must-reads for all parents raising today’s generation of children.
