Better Everyday #88 Living Our 5 Pillars, Fatty Liver & Birth Control Pills

 

This Q&A episode kicked off with rundown of how we are handling the recent big, big stressors in our lives by living from our 5 pillars. Hear just how amazingly well they are working! We’ve almost surprised ourselves, ha! We also answered a question about fatty liver even though diet, exercise and stress management are dialed in as well as a deep dive into what to think about if you are coming off the birth control pill.

Dr Brooke mentioned several nutrients that can be low when you are on or have been on the pill, how to heal you gut post birth control pill, etc. and you can download that FREE protocol here.

Answering some great hormone questions today!

This episode has us doing our favorite thing: answering your questions! We cover the biochemistry of BCAAs when it comes to muscle recovery and cravings as well as if you should use them if you have PCOS or insulin resistance. We dig into dairy a bit which leads us to our definition of real mindful eating (hint: it’s not just eating slower!). As well we had a great question from a listener who loves her intense cardio class because it’s such a stress reliever and gives her that great high. She’s wondering if there’s ever a time when even if it’s wreaking havoc on her hormones is it still worth it for the rush and relief? Such a juicy question! Listen up, this show is a great one!

Holy guacamole do we get into it in this meaty episode! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) In this episode we are joined by co-founded of Butcher Box, Mike Salguero who gave us the inside scoop on the meat we eat. Not only did we cover up confusion around what grassfed even means for beef these days but also got clarification on other common marketing descriptors like free range, pasture raised and heritage breed. We hear Mike’s story on why he started Butcher Box, a company we love that makes healthier proteins accessible to all by delivering these quality products right to your door. Tune in and learn what labels to look for when buying chicken (it’s more than free range!), how pastured raised animals are helping the planet and why pork got deemed “the other white meat” in the first place.

We’re back with Q&A today and our first one was a doozy! We discussed what a saliva cortisol panel can and can’t tell you, when you should be digging into the deeper causes or stress vs. when it’s more related to lifestyle and how to know if your stress management tools like exercise may be causing MORE stress. We recapped what our ACES (appetite, cravings, energy and sleep) acronym is all about and how it’s the language of your hormones so we need to tune in and heed that message! In the case of this question her hormones were saying peanut butter and chocolate chips,  other days they say wine, but either way they are signals we can use to do better and stop fighting our hormones. We also tackled a great question on PCOS and intermittent fasting.

 

This stuff is our life’s work ladies! Helping you optimize your hormone balance with exercise, keeping you strong and injury free and loving the body you call home.

In this episode we cover a myriad of ways you may be able to get better results, have less injuries and keep your hormones happier in the gym. You know we’re big fans of strength training if you know us at all! But there are several things we see women getting stuck with whether that’s in a class setting, knowing when to bump up their weights and even how to warm up properly. We also talk about the taking the right mindset to the gym and answer the ever popular question: how much cardio should you be doing?

And of course we talked a ton about self-care for all of us, abused or not.

In this episode we were lucky enough to have wine enthusiast and entrepreneur, Todd White of Dry Farm Wines, the only health quantified wine club in the world. What this means is that their wines have no sugar, are low alcoholer, are keto-diet and Paleo friendly and boast no headache and no hangover. We know women are especially sensitive to sleep disruptions, headaches, sniffles and generally feeling like garbage when they drink wine – especially over the age of 40. In this show we not only talk about the biogenic amines in most wines that give women so much grief but how wine is made with a staggering amount of additives that can add to the negative impact of wine for women. And Todd shares his approach to drinking wines with food, small pours, good conversation and the notion that wine can help us be more present instead of the common notion that wine is a distraction or a way to escape stress and overwhelm. Super interesting episode, we hope you love it! As if chatting about wine with us wasn’t enough, check out Dry Farms Wines using this link and learn about their wines, how to get healthier wine delivered right to your door as well as how to snag a bottle of wine for just a penny! Check it out here.

The man that needs no introduction and who has done so much to advance research based ancestral health and functional medicine: Mr. Chris Kresser! Such a pleasure to talk with Chris but today was extra special because he has a new book out that will help you and your doctor not only improve your chronic  health issues but revolutionize the way we treat chronic disease for all. Chris shares the shocking stats on just how much it costs us to treat chronic issues like diabetes and autoimmunity the way we currently do. We quickly see it’s not sustainable for our medical system or our nation. This book will help you have the conversation with your doc you have been wanting to have and how to start the dialogue about changing what’s so broken with our system for doctors and patients alike.

In this episode we had ancestral health expert and registered dietitian Laura Schoenfeld! We get so many questions about what to do when a period has gone missing and how to get it back – if you even need to – so we devoted an entire show to this topic. We take a deep dive into the many causes of amenorrhea (lack of a period) specifically hypothalamic amenorrhea which is an issue in the brain more so than the ovaries or the uterus and often has stress as a root cause. That stress can come from dieting or over-exercise or a host of other sources. And together we provide a different look at how to use exercise to get a period back whereas most experts say no period, then no exercise.

 

Need help finding your lost period? Laura graciously offered a huge discount to our listeners for her digital program Get Your Period Back. Grab that here.

It’s the Holiday Season! A super fun time of year that can come with some super big stresses and often food, drink and lack of schedule that doesn’t work so well for us. In this episode we talk about a new perspective for the holidays that can help reframe this whole “hustle and bustle” chaos we find ourselves in this time of year. We also share some of our favorite traditions, when to think about creating new traditions, what you can do instead of or in addition to buying presents and finally how we can help others who are dealing with loss and grief this time of year. And we give you an update on where we’re at emotionally with the holidays given the ups and downs we’ve both had in 2017!

We’ve talked about picky eaters on the show before but we know how hard this is so we covered it one more time! What to do, what not to do and how to hang in there with the picky, don’t like anything, won’t try anything kiddos. Next we had a scary, yet all too real inquiry about what to do when your daughter starts showing signs of puberty as young as 7 or 8. Sadly this is becoming all too common in our hormonally disrupted world! But there are several things you can do to prevent this or slow it down and we cover them in this episode.

This episode is in response to an email from a listener that thinks we’re way off the mark when we talk about weight loss and that we are far too immersed in diet culture. Interestingly, we actually feel nothing could be farther from the truth! We dive into how we really feel about the topic of weight loss, all the trouble it brings up for women and how we can all do it better. This listener also proposed the answer to all the problems women have with body image and fat loss can be solved by simply eating intuitively. While we love the idea of intuitive eating in theory, we share why this can be almost impossible for most women to do when their hormones are deranged.  In this show we also reiterate our passion for helping women find what works for them and why we believe every single woman has the right to choose what’s right for her health, her weight, her body and her life right now – and it can all be done with love! You won’t want to miss this show.

In this episode we covered several unique aspects of both nutrition and exercise for PCOS. Perhaps most importantly that you have to honor your unique PCOS metabolism in addition to other hormonal imbalances such as cortisol, thyroid, etc.as you filter through any dietary and training advice. We also take a close look into PMDD – premenstrual dysphoric disorder – which is much more than just super bad PMS. This condition can be extremely difficult to live with and is often treated ineffectively with SSRIs. In this show we talk about the lesser discussed cause of this issue which is inflammation and how this impacts both serotonin and dopamine.

In this episode we answered a question about how to use omega 3 and omega 6 (evening primrose oil specifically) to treat menstrual cramps, what’s the most menses-friendly diet and what may be underlying your painful periods. And we’ve all had – or fear we’re about to have – that moment when we look in the mirror and barely recognize the woman looking back at us. What’s more stressful than this?? We talked about how to transition through the various stages in life, particularly the many phases of motherhood and how to reconnect and rediscover yourself – be who you are as we say. This topic included a lengthy list of the books we recommend on personal growth and happiness. Finally we answer the all too popular question: should you work out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach?

On this episode we talk about how to utilize elimination diets like a 30 Day Paleo Template to find out more about what foods work for you. We cover when you need to stick it out longer than 30 days and what else to consider like a gut healing supplement regimen and testing for food sensitivities as well as infections like SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). We also discuss what to eat and how to exercise when you’re under the weather and what it means when you cry after your workouts. You can bet we had a TON to say about that!
