Ep 81: Why self-care is NOT selfish, and the power of a Solo-Cation
In this episode, I talk about why it's NOT selfish if you need alone time, and how to find it (even in the busiest lives). For me, I need space to hear my own thoughts, to organize my life, to know what I want/need, and to know the next steps. I've found TRUTH in the adage that when you look after yourself first, you — and everyone around you — will be richly rewarded. I also share practical tips about traveling alone, and important reminders if your solo-cation is just a few minutes at the coffee shop down the street!

Ep 74: Rewriting Old Stories to Reduce Prolapse and Bladder Leakage
This interview with Sharon Oakley is pure gold. She shares her story of postpartum bladder leakage (and ultimately, prolapse), and how this led her to feeling like her vagina was "broken."

With tools such as journaling and reframes, Sharon was able to resolve a majority of her pelvic floor concerns and is now living an active life with her husband and son.  Links: Connect with Sharon on Instagram, @pelvic_floored Get started with Lift, the program Sharon mentions as part of her daily self-care practice: https://femfusionfitness.com/lift Learn more about Transcend: https://www.femfusionfitness.com/transcend Get my free exercise, "changing your narrative," which helps you identify and gently rewrite your old stories and limiting beliefs.

May is Pelvic Pain Awareness month, and I'm continuing our pain series with Elizabath Makous, AKA "The Pelvic Whisperer."

Elizabeth shares: How to find a great physical therapist  The importance of differential diagnosis (in PT) and of creating individualized treatment plans How Elizabeth helped design and refine Therawand tools for pelvic pain relief at-home The importance of getting to know your body and how to listen to your tissues Some very intimate tips about how to use tools (such as Therawand) and how to reduce fear around self-treatments and intercourse Elizabeth's electrical stimulation protocol: how it's unique, and when your therapist can begin using it with you The importance of patience in your healing journey (as Elizabeth states, "if you're not better in 5 visits, it doesn't mean you've failed therapy. It takes a while for a patient to get a whole program that will work for them.") The importance of using support systems such as a great physical therapist AND home treatment options (like Therawand, FemFusion programs, etc) so that you can go home and not feel helpless Her overarching message of hope: don't give up!!!

Naja shares: How we can use our cycle as our superpower... even with endo!  The importance of "remembering the wins" (remembering what's worked in the past) to retrain the brain and invoke a feeling of confidence and calm that helps SYSTEMWIDE, as well as reducing endo pain Visceral manipulation and the energetic sense of endometriosis lesions The importance of rest and routines How to optimize gallbladder and liver health, support brain function and health, and support digestive health Why the pelvic system is like a waltz How to add veggies to your breakfast (try a baked sweet potato with grass-fed butter and cinnamon!) The power of cinnamon bark (get my moon chocolate recipe! bit.ly/femchoc) Menstrual protection (does using a pad instead of a tampon or cup help with endo pain?)

Ep 59: All About Pessaries for Prolapse w/ Michelle Lyons
If you're looking for a non-surgical option to manage your prolapse, then a pessary might be just for you. Don't miss this rapid-fire Q&A with physiotherapist Michelle Lyons! We discuss: Importance of getting fitted and exploring different options/sizes Are they really a long-term solution? Can they be used indefinitely? Can they be used just during exercise? How often do they need to be removed and cleaned? How do you clean a pessary?  Can you have sex with it in? Differences between over the counter (i.e. ordering online, by yourself) pessaries vs prescription? Are pessaries safe during pregnancy? Are there any risks or dangers of long-term use? Do they weaken or "overstretch" the tissues or cause any irritation? Can products such as collagen supplementation, or red light therapy help with tissue health? Does nutrition help with tissue health?  Visit Michelle online: www.celebratemuliebrity.com Find Michelle on Instagram: @michellelyons_muliebrity Additional Links: Lift 2.0 is now available!!!

In this powerful episode, you will be invited into a VERY PERSONAL STORY about the long road to rectocele recovery, and why Kim Vopni (AKA "Vagina Coach") ultimately made the decision to undergo surgery for rectocele repair. Kim reveals: Why she had surgery booked twice and didn't go through with it... Turns out, the third time was a charm! The internal struggle she experienced as a pelvic health professional What quality of life items impacted her decision to move forward with surgery Why this line of conversation needs to be opened up to more women who are on a similar path Why surgery should never be a first line of defense, but why it's important to remove feelings of shame, guilt, or fear around it if it becomes the best (or necessary) choice Get in touch with Kim: Kim's blog: https://www.vaginacoach.com/blog Find Kim on Instagram: @vaginacoach DON'T MISS PART TWO, coming March 10, 2021!!!

Ep 56: How her prolapse story led to pelvic health awareness and activism w/ Filippa Odevall
STORIES are how we connect. Sharing our own, personal stories (and listening to stories of others who've "been there") is how we heal. In this fantastic interview with Filippa Odevall, you'll learn about her prolapse journey and the path she has taken toward natural healing, and how it empowered her to — ultimately — help women all over the world. Filippa Odevall is the Co-Founder of Women Cycles — a brand new course platform for women's challenges from before puberty to after menopause. Her favorite quote is, "There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself". You will learn: Filippa's biggest challenge when she experienced symptomatic prolapse after childbirth Why options from the health care system can feel so limiting What she thinks is the *most* important factors to be able to heal Why healing is not linear (and how to deal with that, emotionally) How Byron Katie's "The Work" helped with the emotional component of prolapse What it's been like to start a new business with her husband Why Women Cycles is "like the Netflix for pelvic health" Get started with Women's Cycles!

Ep 55: Gait Changes After Episiotomy and C-Section w/ Dan Baines
Truth: the WHOLE BODY is connected, and scar tissue you developed years ago may impact your movement today! In this episode with UK-based osteopath Daniel Baines, you'll learn about movement patterns that can unconsciously occur after injury, trauma, or scarring. Dan sees people falling into two patterns: opening and moving away from the injury/scar site, vs closing and moving toward the injury/scar site (more of a protective mechanism). We discuss how this patterning remains in your nervous system even after the injury/scar has healed. Dan shares a SIMPLE home treatment (that you can try too) of treating the nerve receptors via gentle, reassuring touch... you might find that your movement changes completely when you place your hand on the scar tissue site. We also discuss reintroducing safety into the system through hypnotherapy, what it means to move "somatically," the importance of slowing down movement to really FEEL (and heal), and SO MUCH MORE! Don't miss Dan's blog post: www.danielbaines.co.uk/episiotomy-scars-adductors-gait Dan's video describing "somatic" pelvis exploration, and tips to see if your scars are influencing your movement patterns: youtu.be/lcFUhr3pq6Q If you like this conversation, then you'll also like the following interviews from my podcast archives:  Ep 45: Understanding Prolapse and Biotensegrity w/ Anna Crowle Ep 41: The Effect of the Iliacus on Digestion and Pelvic Health w/ Christine Koth Additional Links: Lift 2.0 is now available!!!

Ep 51: Loving your Meridians for Prolapse and Bladder Health w/ Dr. Jannine Krause
As stress and pressure in my work life has increased, guess what... some of my pelvic health symptoms have worsened! Specifically, urinary urgency and frequency, as well as feelings of heaviness in my pelvis. Yep! I'm outing myself. Pelvic health is for LIFE, and it's a constant work in progress... even for the experts.  As a pelvic health expert in need of a little EXTRA pelvic floor self-help, I turned to my good friend Dr. Jannine Krause to discuss the meridian system as a pelvic healing modality. In this episode you'll learn about the bladder, kidney, and spleen meridians and how these "energetic highways" can help -- or hinder -- our pelvic health. Jannine shares specific tips about how to eat for the health of these meridians and how to care for them: what time of the day they need to be supported most, and a specific position to heal and replenish them.  Visit Jannine online: https://doctorjkrausend.com Get the nutritional guidelines Jannine shares in this episode for FREE, no email opt-in required: Kidney Strengthening Foods (click) and Foods to Fight Prolapse (click) Find Jannine on Instagram: @drjanninekrause Tune into "The Health Fix Podcast" with Dr. Jannine!

Welcome! This is part two of a two-part series with somatic counselor and women's pelvic health expert Alicia Patterson. We discuss the layers of the pelvic floor and pelvic healing.

The second layer is the levator ani muscle group; it's profoundly strong, foundational, and represents our identity + our story. The third layer is the cervix, which contains ancient information that's BEYOND our conscious "stories."  Pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in, as we discuss what all of this means! alicianpatterson.com , courses listed on website Contact Alicia directly at alicianpatterson@gmail.com Instagram: @innerpoweralicia Alicia's favorite tool for general pelvic health and cervix work: yoniegg.com/product/black-volcanic-glass-massage-wand (note: this product is LARGER than I realized!!!

Ep 34: The Key Ingredients for Healing My Prolapse and Psoriasis*
*This is my personal story, and is not to be used as a substitute for medical treatment or advice. In this episode I get super personal, and it ends with happy tears! I share the two "magical ingredients" that worked to heal my prolapse: belief that I could get better, and trust in myself. As of this recording, I am harnessing these same ingredients to overcome psoriasis, along with the body and spirit components that are necessary to consider when utilizing a holistic mind-body-spirit approach.  My intention for sharing these very personal prolapse and psoriasis stories is to inspire YOU in your own healing journey. Do you believe that you can get better? How are you talking to yourself? Do you trust yourself? Are you tending to your spirit? Are you uncovering, honoring, and then releasing any emotional restrictions that may be contributing to your physical condition? And then grounding back into your 3-D "reality," are you serving your manifested physical foundation (i.e. your body) with tools and practices that support your healing?  If this conversation interests you, then Transcend, my next level of coaching, is for you.

It was fun to be in the hotseat for this interview, which is all about mindful and intuitive movement!  I share: my "micro-dosing movement" theory (especially good for people with chronic pain), the importance of knowing your limits especially if you have adrenal fatigue, how to honor your cycles and "seasons" of your life, my steps for learning how to move intuitively, how the music you're drawn to can help you find your perfect movement practice, why tuning into the deep core is important, and why it's okay to "date" multiple forms of movement before settling down with one.  Resources/links: Refer back to Episode 22 of this podcast, "Making Peace with Food," to learn more about mindful and intuitive eating!

In this enlightening interview, my soul sister — Beth Basham, RD — teaches us how to develop our "inner nutritionist" so that we can experience peace with food and THRIVE! Beth teaches listeners the difference between mindful and intuitive eating, how to engage the mindful eating process, how to diminish bloating and digestive distress simply by focusing on your food (this is huge!), and most of all, how to develop self-trust that can heal your relationship with food and eating.  Beth is a Functional Dietitian Nutritionist making waves in the nutrition world for her life-changing work with clients on mindful and intuitive eating. Her mission is to change women’s perspective on food and body so they can escape overwhelm and “rules” with food and nutrition and embrace food and body freedom for a lifetime. Her 14+ years in the field, extensive training in integrative and functional nutrition, and yoga teacher certification all come together to give her clients and unique and powerful experience. Your mind and beliefs are one of the most powerful, yet most misunderstood pieces of the nutrition puzzle... Learn from Beth to bridge the gap and elevate your health to the next level.

Ep 17: Reinvention at Any Age w/ Jenn Edden
As Jenn Edden says, "You can change your life any time you want." In June 2019, Jenn changed her life pretty dramatically by selling everything and packing up her husband three kids to set off on a year-long cross country road trip full of discovery.

Jenn, a board-certified holistic health counselor and sugar addiction expert, shares her steps for reinvention at ANY age or stage, as well as some tips for maintaining healthy habits throughout the changes.  Jenn's shares how sugar cravings can actually be a SIGN that you're ready to reinvent yourself (as she says, "reinvention can give you the natural high that you're looking for, instead of reaching for food or other substances") and her four steps to reinvention: 1) weigh the pros and cons, 2) share your dream with others, 3) set a date and have a plan, 4) ...and then DO IT!

It's the first episode of Season 2, and it's so exciting to be back for MORE!!! After a short break (due to filming/producing Kegel Camp, read more about that below) I'm back in the podcast game and thrilled to be bringing you supportive episodes during this time of COVID-19. Please know that this episode is "timeless" and so even if you're not listening during the time of the Coronavirus outbreak and period of self-quarantine, you will still benefit from what Dr. Anita and I discuss about making healthy changes at home.

Episode 14: Energized Enlightenment with Keto Green 16! Interview w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca
In this interview, Dr. Anna Cabeca busts some myths and shares pearls of wisdom about the keto diet, intermittent fasting, and how this applies to WOMEN! Dr. Anna shares: how to mobilize your own fat stores and shift your fuel source to experience "energized enlightenment," the power of low-carb greens, her thoughts on "Keto Dirty" vs. "Keto Clean," how to maintain metabolic flexibility, and why this way of eating and living is helpful for female hormone balance.  A personal note from Bri: As an advocate for a plant-based diet, I was concerned about (yet another) keto plan, but Dr. Cabeca's is different. All of her recipes are dairy-free, and she emphasizes antioxidant-rich, detoxifying greens. She even offers a vegan plan for those who choose to limit (or omit) eggs and meat. This is a huge "win" for me! I've pre-ordered her book and have already started exploring!  Dr. Anna was awarded "Innovator of the Year" for her Julva cream, a product I recommend to all of my clients who are struggling with vaginal dryness, connective tissue laxity, and even light bladder leakage.
