Healing from gut + hormone imbalances
In this episode, I share intimate and emotional details of my birth, childhood, adolescence + early adulthood. I get into the nitty gritty of what contributed to my health imbalances.  I share what symptoms started as a child and how they started to exacerbate after being ignored for years. I share my experience with my functional medicine practitioner and what led me to pursue a career in this field!  I wanted this episode to serve as a reminder that healing IS possible. But it isn't an overnight quick-fix. It involves taking deep inventory of your life and committing to this lifestyle change.  I believe God has called us closer to him by going through these healing journeys. It's a gentle nudge to "wake up" so we can understand all that we have been through and what we have put into and onto our bodies.  Just as it took years and years to become symptomatic, it can take some time to gently peel layers back. We need to ditch the quick-fix mentality so we can achieve true optimal health which is by no means linear ♥️  Period Restoration waitlist  VIP waitlist for July  Join the FB community Four Phases of Your Cycle Webinar HTRYM freebie!

Be sure to sign up here so you don't miss out on any emails! When there’s estrogen dominance present (not enough progesterone to oppose estrogen) that can usually also mean there’s a thyroid issue present, poor liver and gallbladder health, etc all leading to symptoms such as irregular periods or (late) periods, heavy, painful bleeding, PMS, lack of period, etc. You guys may have heard me say this… but your period is not the main event of your cycle.

Less Instagram, More Connection.
When reviewing others’ social activity, people tend to make comparisons such as, “Did I get as many likes as someone else?,” or “Why didn’t this person like my post, but this other person did?” They’re searching for validation on the internet that serves as a replacement for meaningful connection they might otherwise make in real life. FOMO—fear of missing out—also plays a role. If everyone else is using social media sites, and if someone doesn’t join in, there’s concern that they’ll miss jokes, connections, or invitations. Missing experiences can create anxiety and depression. When people look online and see they’re excluded from an activity, it can affect thoughts and feelings, and can affect them physically. A 2018 British study tied social media use to decreased, disrupted, and delayed sleep, which is associated with depression, memory loss, and poor academic performance. Social media use can affect users’ physical health even more directly. Researchers know the connection between the mind and the gut can turn anxiety and depression into nausea, headaches, muscle tension, and tremors. The earlier teens start using social media, the greater impact the platforms have on mental health. This is especially true for females. While teen males tend to express aggression physically, females do so relationally by excluding others and sharing hurtful comments. Social media increases the opportunity for such harmful interactions. In addition to providing young people with a window through which they can view missed experiences, social media puts a distorted lens on appearances and reality. Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat increase the likelihood of seeing unrealistic, filtered photos at a time when teen bodies are changing. In the past, teens read magazines that contained altered photos of models. Now, these images are one thumb-scroll away at any given time. Apps that provide the user with airbrushing, teeth whitening, and more filters are easy to find and easier to use. It’s not only celebrities who look perfect—it’s everyone. When there’s a filter applied to the digital world, it can be hard for teens to tell what’s real and what isn’t, which comes at a difficult time for them physically and emotionally. This “social comparison” factor takes many forms online that can negatively affect users of social media. To compensate for the natural tendency to compare themselves with the people they interact with online, young people need to remind themselves that social media makes people and things look better and more attractive than they are in real life. This is why I’m moving away from Instagram and shifting my main platform to be on my website - I plan on using social media as a strategic tool so I can spend less time on it which I’ve already been practicing and I have been so much happier, less worried, less anxious, less crippled by this little app. I plan on spending my time that I would have been spending on instagram - cultivating deeper connections with friends + family, reading more books, going on more hikes, planning big things for my practice and devoting more play time with my dogs. I hope this message resonated well with you. I simply want you to become aware of the matrix we have created for ourselves… as easily as we created for it for ourselves, we can create a different vortex for ourselves too - cultivating real human connection like we once used to. If you enjoyed this episode, please don’t forget to leave me a 5 star review or rating as it helps the podcast so much! Until next time. Instagram  Join The Nourished Method  VIP waitlist

Weights, Dieting + Unlearning with Emma Sgourakis + Kitty Blomfield
Emma Sgourakis, mum of two, and Certified Nutritionist in Melbourne Australia, working with clients one on one worldwide. Emma's 2-3 month programs help to re-educate about nutrition for optimising digestion, metabolism, reducing stress and improving fertility. A big part of her work particularly in the past 10 years has been helping people interpret the research of Dr. Ray Peat, someone she is greatly inspired by.  Kitty spent most of her adult life dieting. She jumped from one quick fix diet to the next. Shakes, fasting, keto and low carb. You name it she's done it. She was obsessed with food and felt like she was either restricting or I was binge eating. She felt happiest when she was thin but she had to starve myself and train 6-7 days a week to maintain it. She had irregular and painful periods, suffered miscarriages, rarely slept through the night, was bloated and constipated and she was exhausted. That all changed in 2015 when she met Craig and stumbled across the work of Ray Peat and Emma Sgourakis. What she learnt transformed my body and health. It's now her mission to free women from restrictive diets, help them restore their metabolisms, balance their hormones and build bodies they love

Tapping Into Your Intuition with Johanna Olivas
I myself have lost touch with my intuition. I have listened to friends and family who only wanted the best for me but at the end of the day I have always known what was best for me even when my ego thought I didn't. Recently, I've began connecting to my intuition again through yoga, deep meditations and continuously checking in with my body. Joey (Johanna) is my cousin who is a RYT, RPYT & Reiki Master Practitioner! She has inspired me to add these tools to my tool belt because I have seen the profound outcomes from incorporating these practices whether it be for myself or for my clients. Nutrition and proper supplementation can only do so much to heal. They are an important part of the puzzle but we have to address stuck energy within the body. Get out of our minds into our bodies.  Joey and I sat down to chat about where the heck to begin tapping into our intuition. Joey shares some techniques she loves to incorporate! Ultimately, our intuition is our best guide throughout life - so why not connect daily?  Where to Find Joey: https://www.instagram.com/lunaserenityyoga/

Karla is a Holistic Health Coach in the making! But I didn't find her because of that. She had shared an INCREDIBLE and eye-opening video talking about womb trauma & yoni steaming! Immediately, I went to follow this girl because we were vibing on the same resonance. Everything about her hit home with me and after our first phone call, I knew we were meant to cross paths.  Her wisdom she shares on this episode is incredibly healing and helpful. Through her own childhood traumas & toxic relationship, Karla was able to face these truths and evolve into the beautiful and wise woman she is today. I did get emotional on the show because I didn't realize we had such similar background when it came to childhood trauma. Every word she had said resonated so much with me.  We talk about her healing journey beginning with her food choices and then diving into "the work" which led to a conversation about womb trauma, yoni steaming and yoni eggs!  Where to find Karla:  https://www.instagram.com/venus.ruler/ YONI STEAMING HERBS: https://www.sacredlotusyonisteam.com/shop code: VENUS15
