As you know we’re in love: with Annmarie Skincare! We’ve been going on and on about it lately and from what we’ve heard you all are loving it too! You know it is an opportunity to lessen harmful chemicals and endocrine disruptors by choosing cleaner skincare products and luckily we have way better choices than we did in the past. Finding natural skincare that’s good for us, the environment and um, well, actually works hasn’t been so easy in the past! To talk more about their particular brand of natural beauty we had two experts from the Annmarie team on this episode. We were able to talk more in depth about the problems with cosmetic labeling and how you can be more educated when choosing a product, the grassroots story behind the Annemarie Skincare brand and what products from their line may be the best suited for your unique skin concerns.
 
Rachel and Abby from Annmarie join us today lending their expertise to our so far flawless experience with this line – we love it! And we loved having them on. Tune in to get the inside scoop on this beautiful line. To get your $10 sample kit shipped FREE anywhere in the world, use this link.

Warning: this episode does deal with the subject of sexual, physical and emotional abuse.  In this episode we are joined by the lovely Dr Meg Haworth who has personally and professionally dealt with all of the various forms of abuse.  Having been abused as a child, nearly downed, struck by lightning it’s no wonder her professional path led to a PhD in Interpersonal Psychology so she can help other women that have survived abuse as well.  We touched on which type of chronic health issues in adulthood are correlated with which specific types of abuse from childhood as well as how we can best support abuse survivors whether that be ourselves or other women we care about. And of course we talked a ton about self-care for all of us, abused or not.

In this episode we have the brilliant and beautiful Dr. Gabrielle Lyon! We asked her all your burning questions about what to eat before a workout, and after, how much protein women really need and why she believes muscle is the organ of longevity. Dr Lyon calls protein the “black sheep of the macros” because it has such an emotional trigger for many of us – after all it has a face. We talked about the chemistry of protein, why it’s so crucial and some vegetarian protein source math so you can do better with your protein choices. To learn more about Dr Lyon click here.

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 base of these beverages is cordyceps, an adrenal adaptogen that we love for taming stress. Listeners of Better Everyday with Sarah & Dr Brooke save 15% with the code “bettereveryday” at checkout.

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. Finally, we talked about the differences and similarities between environmental, seasonal and food allergies/sensitivities – and what you can do to help them both!

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!

We get a little personal on our own challenges with getting vulnerable and out of our comfort zone. We share why we think this invaluable to your growth and your health even though it can feel so tough!  In this episode we also answered a great listener question about stretching more as she’s getting frequently injured and dealing with tight muscles. We share our take on tight vs. underactive muscles and why stretching not always the answer even though a muscle feels “tight”. Finally, what to do with hormonal headaches when it comes to balancing estrogen and not overlooking other triggers as it’s often not just one thing.

We covered a complex, juicy question from a listener about her daily glass or two of wine. Should she give it up? We discussed all angles of this conundrum from nutrient deficiencies, to stress management to doing what really matters TO YOU. This discussion of course applies to wine, staying up late, sugar or any other habit you’re worried may need to go – or does it? Next we talk about something we hear a lot from women and that is: I don’t want to do the same thing over and over in the gym, it’s boring! We talked about why exercise can work as medicine, when to just get it done and when to reconsider your mindset in the gym. We also pose the question: are you really bored or are you actually uncomfortable?  And when to ditch all that advice and just do something even if it’s not a perfect program.

In this episode we shared our overwhelm and how we’re handling our emotional hangover from recent events – both public and personal. Sometimes life gets pretty heavy and it can seem hard to balance the weight of the bigger world’s problems and those in our own tiny personal universe, but they both matter.

 

We also talk about our favorite vitamins to give our kiddos, alternatives to prescriptions for managing very heavy periods and strategies for handling opposition about how you have chosen to feed or raise your kids. We tackle this from both a strategic perspective as well as the bigger picture long term health benefits from taking a stand on this early.

Lucky you! Here is a bonus podcast that is an audio recording of a webinar I did about how inflammation messes up our hormones. Ladies, this is the biggest deal. Inflammation affects hormone effects at the genetic level so you can have enough hormone around but it doesn’t create the desired effect. Read: normal lab tests but you still feel like garbage. Let alone if you have low hormone levels (i.e. testosterone, estrogen, thyroid, etc.) plus inflammation. Yikes right?
I dive into how this all works in terms of the impact of inflammation on your hormones ranging from cortisol to thyroid to insulin, as well as estrogen and progesterone. Special attention is paid to inflammation for women with PCOS. We have it rough, real rough.  Not only do we have smoldering, low levels of inflammation as a baseline with PCOS but we get so easily locked into chronic inflammation. This is actually a root cause of PCOS and it won’t be solved by just eating less carbs.  Inflammation affects all other hormone imbalances in PCOS and it is also made worse by most PCOS related hormone issues like high androgens and insulin resistance. Many vicious cycles in this inflammatory mess.

BUT when you understand this unique interplay, you can take great strides to better balance your female hormones by addressing inflammation. If you feel you’ve tried everything this episode is for you. If you feel confused by PCOS this episode is for you. If you have female hormones and live in the Western World, this is for you!

If you’d like to watch the webinar replay with slides to accompany this audio, you can do that here.

 

If you’d like to get into the Empowered PCOS Program live with Dr Brooke you have ONLY until SUNDAY Sept 24th! Then this baby goes in the vault for a bit and I will not likely ever run this live again. Get this powerful program for less than the cost of one visit with Dr Brooke one on one, not bad eh?

 

Join the other amazing women who are already signed up and share this sometimes bumpy road of PCOS with women who get it. Enroll here.

Dr Mariza is a Functional Medicine Physician with a specialty in women’s hormones and author of the Smart Mom’s Guide To Essential Oils – but rest assured ladies, this book is for all women not just the mamas!
