As a parent, children growing up is oh so bittersweet.  I am just now starting to adjust to the idea that I’m the mother of kids that aren’t babies or toddlers anymore. While my kiddos are not yet flying the nest, many of you have expressed anxiety and sadness about the upcoming transition for your parenting to kiddos leaving the house. In this episode I’m joined by journalist Celia Dodd, author of “The Empty Nest: Your Changing Family, Your New Direction” and “All Grown Up: Nurturing Relationships With Adult Children”.

 

We cover this issue from so many angles from how this impacts you, your spouse, your adult child, a sibling still at home, how this is different for a single vs. a married or partnered parent and more. Celia approaches this subject with compassion and we discuss how to handle the myriad of emotions from sadness to fear of the unknown to anxiety that your child may be farther away than they’ve ever been from you and the excitement for getting in touch with other aspects of yourself beyond being a mother.

 

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did, although I’ll admit this interview made me anxious about my future for sure! Pointing towards work I need to do within myself to ease this transition for myself and my family - and illustrating that it’s not too early to listen to this episode! Even if you feel this phase of motherhood is a long way off.

I’m joined for this episode by Galina Denzel, author of the amazing, interactive book “Peace with Self, Peace with Food: A Trauma Healing Approach for Emotional Eating”. We dive into how past events can leave us vying for distraction, safety and even control when we experience everyday stresses from the big to the small. Many of us soothe that stress with emotional eating, never fully understanding that it’s not a lack of willpower or acknowledging that nothing is wrong with us, we are unhealed in some way and self-medicating or self-soothing it with food, wine, etc. 

 

In this show we talk about how your brain gets a bit rewired from trauma and how certain aspects of eating, like crunching (who knew??) can be so stress relieving making it no wonder so many of us turn to food to feel better when we’re under stress, in pain or otherwise hurt or out of sorts.

“Tis the season to be busy and surrounded by foods that may not work so well for you. Should you go all in cuz it’s only once a year? Swap out the sugar in your pumpkin pie for stevia and coconut sugar? Indulge and then beat yourself up for not having more willpower? Or simply say, whatever, I’ll try again January 1?

As you may imagine, I’m gonna say “it depends!” It really does. It depends on how easy it is for you to sidestep things that don’t work for you, your history with dietary restriction, how much they wreck you and why you want them in the first place. 

 

In this episode I walk you through the questions you can ask yourself to get #curiousovercritical about your draw to and cravings for certain foods, how to know if moderation or avoidance is best for you and how to enjoy them when the #joyfactor is high and skip the ones where it is low.

Recently a study - and subsequent headlines - came out saying that we should no longer be testing vitamin D levels or supplementing with vitamin D. In this episode I talk about what they evaluated in this particular study and the conclusions we can and can’t draw about vitamin D supplementation for conditions like osteoporosis, autoimmunity and other chronic conditions. As well when we need to think past a lab value for vitamin D to see what may be driving the level low and supplementation may not be the thing - or at least not the only thing - to do.

On the heels of the last episode on breakfast, I put together and entire episode on morning routines. So much of what you read about morning routines are very complex, specific and time consuming leaving most of us feeling like we fail before we even get our day started. Not at all how we should feel going into our day! And in the wellness space your morning to do list is no better: light exposure, meditate, cold plunge, exercise, fasting, delaying caffeine, etc. 

 

In this episode I talk about how to figure out which morning habits will give your hormones and physiology the most benefit and which ones you can save for later - if at all. I also talk about knowing what is your “one thing” that you should aim for even if the rest of the routine falls apart - as it inevitably does! And I share my “one thing”, why I think it’s more about how you feel than what you do first thing in the AM and the importance of letting your routine evolve as your goals/priorities change.

I get this question daily: Dr Brooke, what are good breakfast options? Given that breakfast sets the nutritional tone and hormonal balance for the day, the old adage that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” does hold some weight. Some of the biggest issues for women include getting adequate protein to not perturb insulin and blood sugar for the day and get a jump on that 1g per kg body weight of protein goal for the day; as well as needing quick options and also how to deal with low appetite (particularly for protein) upon waking that can be due to cortisol, blood sugar or inflammation. 

This episode will help you understand why this meal needs to be optimized for your hormones, some easy options and of course, what I do too to make this happen in my busy life. Hopefully by the end of this episode you’ll think of breakfast as less “special” with its unique foods and have some easy ideas to make your first meal of the day a great one. 

At the recommended 1g per kg of body weight, most women struggle to get in adequate protein each day or aim to supplement with products that are not the right blend of essentials amino acids to get the job done (i.e. collagen, bone broth protein, BCAA powders, etc.) With your body being 50% amino acids plus the uphill battle most women face after age 30 to hold on to their lean mass, using a properly blended, complete amino acid blend like those from KION will be a game changer for your health, energy and metabolism.

Dr Brooke Show #292 Collagen, Beef Based Protein Powders, Plant Based Protein Sources & More Protein Q&A

 

As a follow up to episode #290 (All About Amino Acids with Angelo Keely of KION) I asked women in our private FREE Facebook group (you can join here) what challenges they had to getting adequate protein during their day, what questions they had about their protein sources including protein powders and what other nitty gritty they needed to know about getting that 1g per pound of body weight.

Now these questions were great! So many questions about the logistics of “What if I eat soup or chili with protein, how do I know how much I am getting?” and “How to account for the protein in collagen and bone broth proteins”. In this episode I also cover the idea of using plant based proteins to count as a veggie as well as a protein and what it really means when you see a protein powder is “beef based” or “hydrolyzed beef isolate”.

Get your notebooks out cuz this episode is jam packed with info about one of my favorite topics that always deserves more attention and unpacking: protein. I’m joined by founder of KION, Angelo Keely and expert in all things amino acids. We discuss precisely why protein is so foundational for aging and metabolism and the unique considerations for women.

We also make sense of the myriad of powered options you have from protein shakes to collagen peptides to branch chain amino acids, as well as what you need to know about animal vs. plant protein sources - and it's not just about a complete vs. an incomplete protein! Angelo also shares how we can use a complete amino acid blend to up our daily protein intake, support our workouts and a ton of other benefits from supporting mood, balancing hormones and helping with cravings. 

 

This is an episode to tune into and share! The protein conversation is rife with myths, fears and a whole lot of marketing. This conversation with Angelo will help us all feel more informed and on our way to living a longer, healthier life that’s full of fun - which is in fact the mission of his company Kion. So good! Can’t wait to hear what you think.

Functional nurse practitioner turned coach Victoria Albina joins me for this really great episode - I mean I really loved recording this with her! She goes in depth on how our nervous system is responding when we find ourselves people pleasing, outsourcing our emotional health to others (i.e. needing approval to feel OK) and oftentimes asking ourselves “Why am I responding this way to this smallish thing like it’s a freakin’ huge thing?”

She shares some practical, tangible tools on the episode that you can start using right away to not only calm your nervous system, but actually start to HEAL it. This distinction is a key takeaway from this show. I know you’ll find this one super helpful!

There are many reasons why you aren’t able to recover between workouts and lacking the steam to keep at it with any consistency. I cover several of them in this episode including lifestyle habits that are absolutely key (although perhaps boring) to recovery including sleep, hydration as well as how oxidative stress, inflammation, mitochondrial health and several hormones will impact your ability to repair, reset and get ready to workout again. I also cover the difference between latent and immediate recovery and how lack of one vs. the other indicates different issues. And of course I give you some suggestions for things that help all of us recover better such as cold exposure.

Why is it so hard to change? Is it because you don’t want it enough? Or don’t have the willpower? According to Dr. Shauna Shapiro and the research: the answer is no. Turns out it’s a lack of self-compassion that makes change and living more of the life we want to live so elusive. 

I’m thrilled to have Shauna back on the show to talk about her new companion journal to her book “Good Morning, I Love You” which is a 3 month journey of creating more self-compassion with morning and evening practices and weekly deep dives.

I get asked this question almost more than anything, still after close to 20 years doing this work. When it comes to snacks and what makes a good one, we need to be clear on why we are snacking. Is it habit or boredom or necessary cuz we can’t maintain our energy and blood sugar levels? What do we need to accomplish with a snack: fuel, workout recovery, more protein? I cover all this and give you some of my fav high protein snack options in this episode.

If you’ve wanted to say “Uncle” at any point in the last two years, you are not alone and honestly, who could blame you? It’s been a lot. And then it has been a lot more! Not only have we had repeated stressors one after another - and big ones too like a pandemic, warring countries, racial and political tension and a looming recession - but there has also been ongoing uncertainty and overwhelm hanging over us like a big, gray storm cloud.

 

The stressors keep coming and we have had no time to recover before the next blow, it’s no wonder we are seeing more anxiety, depression, insomnia, digestive issues and a host of inflammatory issues and of course our female hormones are caught in this crossfire as well. In this episode I talk about why we need to prioritize and literally run to our self-care practices, shore up any stresses we can and find ways to recover from this ongoing stress. I also share some lesser known options for your stress response beyond the common fight or flight such as the Challenge Response and Tend and Befriend. We have choices and we have more power than it seems.

These little devices can be a real game changer and give you insight you can’t get with routine labs tests or even a glucometer but there are some things you should know about what can give false readings and how to manage if you get overly fixated on the numbers. In this episode, Carlee and I give some practical tips for using a CGM properly and effectively and a lot of know how in terms of using these devices to make positive change.

I’m just gonna come right out and say it: I stink at accepting help from others. I also know, I’m not alone in that! It can bring up feelings of guilt that we can’t do it all ourselves, an uncomfortable sense of “I don’t deserve help” or “I don’t want to put anyone out” or even “I don’t want to owe anyone anything".

However, when we don’t accept help from others we are furthering our mistrust that we can be cared for by others safely and we are denying those that love us the chance to boost their oxytocin and give to us. It’s good for our self-compassion, self-love and connections to others to be helped so I dedicated some time to talking about why it may be hard for you and how to change your outlook on it for healing and getting some help when you need it!

That stack of papers to file, the list of phone calls to make, the light bulb that needs to be changed, that conversation you’ve had in your head a hundred times but are avoiding having in person, that list of things you need to get to but it just seems to awful you keep pretending it will go away - did you know those are impacting your brain and your hormones?

Our brain will continue to keep these undone tasks as an “open loop” and sucking up your mental energy and willpower until it’s done. Draining dopamine which can certainly impact you motivation to workout and have you craving sugar and things that don’t work well for you. As well your cortisol will be on the rise and impacting your anxiety, sleep and of course, your other hormones like progesterone and thyroid.

 

I talk about how this all works in your brain and some strategies to clear your desk, handle that mental clutter and keep it from getting built up again in the future to decrease your overwhelm and make your hormones a bit happier.

This is the final show of my three part series on food sensitivity testing where I answer your questions on these tests. If you want to know what these tests can and can't tell you and what labs and methodologies to use and which to avoid be sure to listen to parts 1 and 2. In this episode I am answering questions from our Facebook group that cover when to do an elimination diet vs. getting testing, when to see an allergist for testing vs. more functional medicine sensitivity testing, what symptoms like bloating may be telling you (hint: that can be a food sensitivity but can be a whole lot of other things too and so other testing or strategies may be better), when you should retest and much more!

This episode is the second of a three part series on making sense of food sensitivity testing. In the first episode we covered the basics of what food allergy vs. sensitivity means when it comes to your immune system. In this episode I dive into the types of testing available to you and what they are actually testing for. Currently there is a wide array of labs, methodologies and even at home tests you can order and this episode will help you know what’s accurate and what’s not, if a finger stick vs. a blood draw is a good at home option and recap what types of food reactions you won’t see on a food sensitivity test and some easy things you can do to remedy those.

I get asked this question daily, both in my practice and in my online community. It’s a great question because it seems like the perfect answer to alleviate digestive symptoms, skin troubles, low energy, blood sugar and hormone problems right? Just take a test and tell me what to eat! I get it and they can be really helpful BUT there are a ton of problems with these tests. 

 

You need to know what type of reaction you’re actually testing (allergy vs. sensitivity), the labs need to be using the proper methodology (hint: most of them are not), they can’t test for every type of food reaction (i.e.bloating can be caused by a gut infection, low HCL or a food sensitivity and only one of those will show up on a test) AND you need to understand where food sensitivities fit in your overall treatment plan. Food Issues do cause a host of inflammatory issues but they are often a symptom and not a root cause so just “getting your food sensitivities” checked and get off that food forever isn’t usually the best approach.


I will tell you all about why in this 3 part series!

Nutrition expert Ari Whitten, creator of The Energy Blueprint and author of the new book Eat For Energy, joins me today for a jam packed episode to help you have more energy - especially if you’ve dealt with any type of chronic fatigue. We bust a few of myths, we talk about mitochondria health and how “mitochondria support” supplement formulations often miss the mark because they aren’t targeted to the underlying cause of fatigue and lastly, how important it is to look beyond both cortisol and thyroid issues when it comes to fatigue.
