Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Food intolerance testing versus food elimination
  • Favorite sweeteners and sweeteners to avoid
  • How inflammation affects hormonal health
  • Favorite nutrients for hormonal health
  • Some of the biggest nutrition misconceptions
  • What to cook for someone who you’re trying to convert to a healthy lifestyle
  • Healthy on-the-go snacks and the anti-inflammatory diet

Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t be surprised if the very foods that you crave constantly are your biggest allergy foods because of the overexposure.
  • When we eat something that we’re addicted to and we’re allergic to, we end up with a massive surge of adrenalin because adrenalin is our natural way of compensating for the allergic reaction.
  • Gluten is never an 80/20 rule. You’re either on gluten or off gluten. Because the danger of just being off gluten five days a week is you’re just torturing yourself but you’re not getting any of the benefits.
  • A balanced diet is really working in that zone of 33% fat, 33% protein, 33% carbohydrate.
  • If you have the accountability of a fitness tracker and you really share that journey with somebody, it’s a 100% game changer.

Action Steps:

  • Start journaling what you’re eating and discover what foods make you feel amazing and what foods you need to let go of.
  • Check if cane sugar is your kryptonite.
  • Eat an anti-inflammatory menu.
  • Double down on your efforts to stay off of gluten for a minimum of two months to see whether it does have an impact on helping you with whatever health issue you have.
  • Get a sense of the hidden sources of sucrose and other sugars in the food that you’re eating.
  • Steer clear of the pre-prepared salad dressings that have soya oil or canola oil as the primary ingredient.
  • Make sure you’re using real olive oil. Be careful of fake olive oil that’s being sold in conventional grocery stores.

Julie said:

“Food addicts make great nutritionists because you have the compassion to be in the shoes of your client… then they can have hope that breaking up with sugar is possible for them because, on the other side of that, you’re breaking out of food prison.”

“When you’re addicted to food, you’re in food prison. And when you’re in a diet, you’re in food prison. But what we want is to move you into that place of freedom.”

What drives your attitude towards food? Do you sometimes resort to stress eating or emotional eating? How can we become intuitive eaters? Nutritionist and emotional eating coach Rachel Molenda shares her knowledge about all these and more in today’s podcast episode.

About Rachel:
Rachel Molenda is a Toronto-based Certified Holistic Nutritionist (CNP) who specializes in Disordered and Emotional Eating. Through the work that she does, she helps women overcome their struggles with food and their body to ultimately find their food freedom, become intuitive eaters and love the skin they’re in! Rachel’s approach is non-restrictive and emphasizes the nourishing abilities of whole foods, or what she refers to as #RealAssFood. You will instantly feel at home and comfortable with Rachel’s gentle and fun approach to health and self-love!

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Why we need to understand the emotions that are driving our behaviors towards food before we tackle nutrition
  • Why intuitive eating is the most sustainable eating style
  • The steps towards intuitive eating that Rachel implemented for herself
  • Where to begin to address emotional eating
  • How Rachel brings the nutritional aspect to emotional eating in her practice
  • Why chasing a number on a scale is detrimental
  • Enjoying food while traveling
  • Steps that you can take towards practicing body neutrality and intuitive eating

Key Takeaways:

  • People have a deeply-rooted emotional connection to food, and until we unlock what’s actually driving our behaviors towards food, treatment plans aren’t going to matter.
  • The problem with nutrition sometimes is we’re either doing it right and we’re being healthy, or we’re doing it wrong and we’re being unhealthy. No one makes room for the in-between or that flexible zone, which leads to a lot of negative reactive behavior.
  • Emotional hunger can be anything from needing more socialization or needing more fun or needing more stress-relief.
  • Intuitive eating disregards any restrictive diet plan that’s out there. It’s ultimately saying to push those diets aside because your body knows what is best.
  • Weight loss as a measure of health doesn’t make sense. There are so many other determining factors of health.

Action Steps:

  • Become an intuitive eater, find your food freedom, and eat in a way that makes you feel good, that doesn’t feel restrictive or makes you feel crazy about food.
  • Move away from using food as a crutch and understand how you’re using it.
  • If you’re an emotional eater, get coaching support.
  • Keep a food journal or a diet diary.
  • Find foods that you genuinely enjoy.
  • Practice self-love and self-compassion.

Rachel said:

“If body love or body positivity isn’t accessible to you on any given day, practice body neutrality. Which is essentially saying you don’t have to love the crap out of your body right now, but let’s not hate it either… Let’s start on a foundation of self-love and respect.”

“There’s a lot of pressure from maybe social media… you know, that comparison is very much there.  But comparison is also the thief of joy.”

Thanks for listening!

Are you having hormonal issues that you’re looking to overcome? How can you start eliminating the symptoms that you’re experiencing? My Summer Hormone Detox Program may just be what you need! Find out what it’s all about and get the support that you’re looking for!

Click here to Listen on iTunes or Stitcher:

Be sure to subscribe to this podcast on iTunes and leave us a rating and a review!

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • What my Summer Hormone Detox Program is all about
  • Who my Summer Hormone Detox Program is for
  • All the goodies that you can get from my Summer Hormone Detox Program
  • What you can expect from the Hormone Detox Masterclass

Key Takeaways:

  • The Summer Hormone Detox Program is a program that uses nutrition as a foundation. You get a 7-day detox meal plan that works specifically to detox out excess estrogen, support liver detoxification and support your thyroid.
  • Your hormones need fat to function and they also balance and stabilize your blood sugar, so you really do need to include those healthy fats in your diet.
  • Following the meal plan for 7 days doesn’t mean that you’re going to eliminate all your symptoms in 7 days. It’s about creating that foundation so that you can start eliminating these symptoms over time.
  • The more frequently we eat throughout the day, the more we spike our blood sugar and the more chances of causing imbalanced hormones and putting on weight.

Action Steps:

  • Make a commitment to spend more time outdoors and get your daily dose of Vitamin D.
  • Enjoy Mother Nature by going outside and breathing in fresh air, and maybe getting your feet on the grass or swimming in the lake.
  • Support your liver in the detoxification process by giving it the amino acids that it needs and getting in lots of antioxidants in your diet.
  • Cut back on snacking and just stick to eating three meals a day. But if you really can’t help it, choose the right snacks that are going to help support and balance your blood sugar.

Samantha said:

“It’s really about empowering you so that you can better understand your hormonal health and your physiology and really make empowered choices for yourself… It’s really about creating this trickle-down effect so that we can all heal and support each other…”

“When it comes to balancing hormones, what goes on the skin goes in. And we really need to support our hormonal health by ditching the beauty care chemicals and the toxins.”

Thanks for listening!

I hope to see you in the Summer Hormone Detox Program! It’s going to be a delicious way to detox and support your body!

More About Meghan

Meghan Telpner is a Toronto-based author, speaker, nutritionist, and founder of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. She’s written two bestselling books: UnDiet: Eat Your Way to Vibrant Health and The UnDiet Cookbook. Meghan’s success in cultivating a global community of UnDiet enthusiasts and Culinary Nutrition Experts has garnered her features in Forbes and ranking her as one of the top 100 female entrepreneurs in Canada. For more visit MeghanTelpner.com.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The UnDiet revolution
  • How Meghan’s own diet transitioned from diet to undiet
  • Meghan’s experience with miscarriage
  • What preconception planning looks like
  • The essentials you need to have during pregnancy
  • How to manage your diet post-pregnancy
  • ‘Diet’ for babies
  • The Culinary Nutrition Program 

Key Takeaways:

  • The best time to start to start preconception planning is right now.
  • There are people who have healthy vegan pregnancies, but if your body is not getting the fats that you need and your body is asking for more protein and fat, it can be really challenging. It’s important not to deny what your body is naturally trying to communicate that it needs and to follow what you feel is best for you and your baby.
  • Through anecdotal evidence, it seems that a miscarriage is incredibly common before sustaining a healthy pregnancy.
  • The pill is completely toxic and will mess with your hormones potentially for the rest of your life unless you take active measures to clean up the damage that it does nutrient-wise and hormonally-wise.
  • The most effective way that women detoxify is through the placenta, into their unborn child, so the least amount of chemicals that end up in your body, the less work you have to do immediately before becoming pregnant.
  • The microbiome of your gut becomes the first microbiome of your child.
  • If you’re bringing a human into the world, the least you can do is get the toxins out of your life.

Action Steps:

  • Modify your diet according to what works best for you.
  • Detoxify and start living a clean lifestyle. Get rid of the products that contain toxic and unsafe ingredients.
  • Always have good protein sources and healthy snacks in your pantry.

Meghan said:

“I think that if we can bring humor and fun and joy into the process of living our lives, that’s beyond half the batter towards feeling good inside and out.”

“The time to start preconception planning is today. It doesn’t matter how old you are. If you’re 15 or you’re 25 or you’re 35, if you want to have children in your lifetime, you have to start now.”

Do you find yourself waking up with anxiety or being unable to sleep at night? Or do you have trouble losing weight no matter how hard you try? Dr. Carrie Jones talks about some of the problems caused by hormonal imbalances and how the DUTCH Test can help us find solutions to these issues. Hopefully, this will help you gain some insights into the different puzzles that make up your health, your hormones, and your vitality.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • What is the DUTCH Test?
  • What happens when your hormones go down a bad pathway and what can you do about it?
  • How long after implementing some strategies to address your hormones can you do a re-test?
  • Does blood testing serve a purpose?
  • When is the right time in your cycle to test your hormones?
  • What is cycle mapping and what can you learn from it regarding your hormones?
  • Why is it important that your liver metabolizes your hormones?
  • What is the difference between cortisol and cortisone?
  • What does it mean when you have very low levels of free cortisol and high levels of metabolized cortisol and vice versa?

Key Takeaways:

  • DUTCH stands for Dry Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones, a test that shows hormone imbalances as well as hormone metabolites, which allows you to become proactive with your hormonal health.
  • Women can have a hormonal imbalance at any age; and men can have a hormonal imbalance, too.
  • More recently, the DUTCH Tests have been updated to include nutritional organic acids and the neurotransmitter metabolites.
  • The cortisol awakening response is where your cortisol is supposed to shoot up in the first 30 to 60 minutes of when you wake up. And if you don’t get it right, if it stays low or if it shoots up too high, then you’re not going to get anything else right.

Action Steps:

  • Consider doing a DUTCH Test.
  • Take the necessary steps to balance your hormones, test, don’t guess!

Dr. Carrie Jones said:

“Your genes, they dictate a lot, but there’s a lot you can do to change it. And just because you have the mutation, it doesn’t mean everything is 100%… Just because you have the mutation, it’s entirely possible other things have made up for it.”

“Hormones are a luxury but stress is not. The body is designed to deal with fight or flight, and whether or not you ovulate has no bearing on you living. You can not ovulate for the rest of your life and you will still live, but if don’t have cortisol, you will die.”

Samantha said:

“Your genes load the gun but your lifestyle pulls the trigger.”

I have another Q&A episode in store for you today! I love doing these episodes because I love answering your questions, so keep them coming and enjoy the podcast!

Click here to Listen on iTunes or Stitcher:

Stitcher – Click Here

iTunes – Click Here

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • What is the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) diet?
  • What is a coffee enema and how is it the same as or different from a colonic?
  • Should you work out if you have adrenal fatigue?
  • What do you use on your hair when you notice that it’s thinning?

Key Takeaways:

  • The AIP diet focuses on eliminating gut irritants from your diet. It’s similar to the Paleo diet but restricts a lot more. It works on healing the gut by eliminating certain foods that cause inflammation, which gives rise to gut issues, which in turn causes autoimmune diseases.
  • If you are having autoimmune issues and adrenal fatigue, it’s time for you to slow down and shift to lower-intensity exercises and focus more on healing your body, versus pushing it and overdoing it. 
  • If you have a low-functioning thyroid, you have high-functioning adrenals. So if you’ve got thyroid issues, that means you’ve also got adrenal issues.

Action Steps:

  • Consider doing the AIP diet especially if you have autoimmunity.
  • Try doing a colonic first before jumping into doing a coffee enema.
  • Cut down on how often you wash your hair and switch to more natural products.
  • Consider getting a full thyroid panel tested – TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, Anti TPO & Anti Tg

Samantha said:

“Coffee enemas are amazing and they’re a great tool and detox protocol that will help with detoxification and, of course, help support gut health.”

“Movement is important, absolutely, but movement doesn’t have to come in the form of high intensity… and so find something that’s a little bit lower intensity and do that and still focus on moving your body, but really respect that process of healing because it does need time.”

Thanks for listening!

Whether you’re new to essential oils or have been using them for quite some time, this episode is packed with valuable information that you wouldn’t want to miss! Dr. Mariza Snyder shares the best way to use essential oils for hormone balance, how we can use essential oils to manage stress, and so much more!

Click here to Listen on iTunes or Stitcher:

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The best way to use essential oils for hormone balance
  • How we can use essential oils to lower our stress and cortisol levels and support adrenal function
  • The must-have essential oils when we are traveling
  • How to differentiate a high-quality essential oil from a low-quality one
  • The areas at home that we can use essential oils to reduce the toxic load

Key Takeaways:

  • One of the first steps to really get radical self-healing is self-awareness, where we are able to really become aware of how we are feeling, whether it’s feeling drained, exhausted, energized, or overly stressed, and how we begin to implement changes.
  • Essential oils are able to bridge the gap between wanting healthy behaviors and habits and actually doing them.
  • Essential oils are not synthetic hormones, but they work with our adrenals and they work with helping to balance that interplay between estrogen and progesterone.
  • Dr. Mariza Snyder’s hormone blend: Place 10 drops of Clary Sage + 8 drops of Lavender + 8 drops of Geranium + 4 drops of Bergamot + 4 drops of Ylang-Ylang in a 10ml roller, and top it off with whatever carrier oil you prefer.
  • Essential oils are the ultimate swap for the toxic products that you have at home as long as you have a couple of other key ingredients. For green cleaning, that’s just baking soda, vinegar, distilled water and essential oils.

Action Steps:

  • Start your day with a morning ritual and end with an evening ritual.
  • Lower your stress levels by doing the “power of the pause” breathwork with a combination of lavender and bergamot essential oils until you get back to a calm state of being.
  • Swap your toxic products at home for safer DIY products using essential oils.

Dr. Mariza Snyder said:

“What I had found is that oils really made a lot of those healthy habits fun and rewarding and joyful, and that was awesome to me. And not only was it just a fun experience, but they really have these beautiful chemical constituents…”

“A good friend of mine and one of my favorite aromatherapists and a mentor to me used to say, ‘You know what? The cool thing about essential oils is that you literally get to choose your mood. You can choose the way that you want to feel because of oils.’”

Thanks for listening!

If you are interested in joining the CleanBeautyU online program, there are tons of resources there on essential oils and all things beauty care, including videos on how you can make your own clean beauty products.

Problem – you’re feeling fat, frumpy and fatigued. And guess what? You’re not the only one. As someone that is dealing with Hashimoto’s, I’ve had my days of feeling completely exhausted, overwhelmed and brain foggy – is that even a word? I’m sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. 

It’s been over an entire year of working on my thyroid and autoimmunity and throughout this process I’ve learned so much about my hormones, diet and why real ass food is the number one foundation for creating optimal hormonal health. 

I’ve always known food was the foundational key, but it’s been in this past year that I’ve had to really step up my game in the nutrition department. 

And I get it, trying to navigate what diet to follow is overwhelming AF! But, I don’t want you to diet. I want you to eat in a way that is simple, fun and amazingly delicious. Eating to balance your hormones does not need to be confusing or hard. I like to keep things simple around here, in case you haven’t noticed. 

I can bet there is someone you know that has either had cancer, suffered from fibroids or is dealing with a form of hormonal imbalance. 
 
It’s not uncommon these days to hear about 20 year old women getting diagnosed with estrogen dominant cancers, or women having to deal with fibroids and cysts causing them to experience excruciating pain every month. Or women being put on synthroid to support their thyroid, but yet they continue to experience thyroid symptoms, weight gain, fatigue, hair loss and are down right suffering.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • What is estrogen dominance?
  • What are the symptoms of estrogen dominance?
  • What are some causes of estrogen dominance?
  • What can we do to heal estrogen dominance?

Key Takeaways:

  • Estrogen dominance for women is the condition of having far too much estrogen in relation to other hormones, in particular, progesterone in the body.
  • With the overexposure that we have to plastics, chemicals, environmental toxins, food toxins, and stress, there is a good chance that many people are dealing with estrogen dominance.
  • One of the main reasons why there has been a noticeable rise in estrogen dominance among women is because the use of the birth control pill has become so popular.
  • The more fat cells you have, the more estrogen you will make. And the more estrogen you make, the more fat you will store.

Action Steps:

  • Do a DUTCH test or a saliva test to find out where your hormone levels are at.
  • Limit your soy and coffee intake.
  • Find a healthier alternative to the birth control pill.
  • Avoid personal care products that contain xenoestrogens and other toxic chemicals.
  • Filter your water and drink out of glass or stainless steel.
  • Eat enough fiber and choose organic as much as possible.
  • Dry brush.
  • Ditch the plastic.
  • Manage your stress.
  • Take supplements that can help with estrogen dominance.

I get a lot of questions that come in via email or on Instagram or through my website, and I figured I might as well put these into a podcast. So get ready to learn a ton of information as we dive into our very first Q&A episode!

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • How to combat PMS cravings for sugar
  • Starting a detox program and doing a parasite cleanse
  • Where I shop for clothes
  • The collagen brands I use and how I use them
  • Getting off the pill and having issues with fertility

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s common to have PMS cravings around your cycle.
  • A combination of healthy fats, protein and fruits and vegetables in your diet is essential to combating sugar cravings.
  • Getting different types of animal fats in your diet is really important as they are very nutrient-dense and great for supporting hormonal health.
  • Oftentimes, when we are craving for something or we are hungry, it might really mean that we are dehydrated and we are not drinking enough water.
  • Lack of magnesium is typically the reason why we crave a lot of chocolate.
  • The number one way to support detoxification is with your diet.
  • After getting off the pill, you really need to give your body time to heal and time for your hormones to readjust again. It might take six months to even up to a year for you to get your period back.

Action Steps:

  • Take a look at your diet overall and create that clean, healthy foundation in your diet. Are you getting in enough healthy fats? Are you getting in a variety of fruits and vegetables? Are you getting in enough quality protein sources?
  • Make sure to always drink enough water.
  • Set aside a year to heal your body after getting off the pill before you consider getting pregnant.
