Episode #93 -- Interview with Tina McDermott, the Inspired, Lazy Chef
Tina spent most of her life struggling with digestive issues and couldn't understand that the embarrassing gas, bloating, constipation, and yo-yo weight gain/loss all were interconnected. She had these issues since she was a teenager and thought this was just a part of life and had to live with it. Fast forward to her 30’s, she learned that she had Lyme disease, which had gone undetected for years and wreaked havoc on her body. Along with digestive issues, Tina also suffered from extreme and chronic fatigue, depression, vertigo, fevers, weight gain, and ultimately Hashimoto’s disease. She thought she was going through menopause at the age of 37 and couldn't understand why all these things were happening. It took five years to finally figure out ways to be symptom-free. Tina now manages her wellness and weight naturally through food, fitness, and the right supplements. At 54 and going through menopause, she has learned to embrace the transition and go through it with grace and ease. Learn more about Tina at https://tinamcdermott.com/.

Episode #26 -- Interview with Yoga Instructor Gin Carter
Gin Carter worked for the Smithsonian Institution for 12 years as one of the only two people in the world using human fertility techniques to conserve our world’s coral reefs.

She has now dedicated her life to helping people feel better as she believes that people can’t make better choices if they don’t feel good themselves. Gin has a Master’s degree in Biology and her scientific background informs everything she does. She also holds a 200-hour and 500-hour yoga teacher certifications from Wisdom Flow Yoga on Maui.
