Stop Ignoring your Stress & Stop Ignoring your Health
Stop Ignoring your Stress & Stop Ignoring your Health You've been operating in stress mode for so long, you don't even recognize it. That fight or flight mode? Well, that's your norm. It's absolutely destroying your health, causing you to lose sleep and yes, gain weight. Oh, and it's stealing your happiness! Stop ignoring your stress and stop ignoring your health! I'm going to give you some tips to beat stress and overwhelm. It's all today on the Healthy Harmony podcast. Speaking of stress, did you know that you burn through your magnesium stores more readily when you are stressed?  Magnesium deficiency is probably the reason WHY you are feeling so fatigued, crave sugar, struggle with bathroom issues, have imbalanced hormones and aren't sleeping good! Yeah, magnesium is a big deal, and you actually absorb it better through your skin.  This is why I use a magnesium soak! I love to use this for either a bath or to soak my feet.  The brand that I use comes from Living the Good Life Naturally and they have been kind enough to offer a discount to YOU, my listeners!

How to get FREE Health Care
How to get FREE Health Care
WARNING - I'm warning you!  What I'm laying out in the podcast may make you angry.  There may be parts that you don't agree with.  And there is a chance that it will get censored.  Yep, I'm unloading about the health care system, big pharma, big food and the diet and weight loss industry. I'm not holding back! However, it is important that I put this out there and help to open your eyes. 78% of Women are overmedicated. It’s not Health Care, let’s call it what it is. It’s sick care, they profit when you are sick.  Are you curious about how to stay out of the broken, sick care system and get free health care? Keep listening, that’s what I’m chatting about today on Healthy Harmony. We are facing a very broken and I’m going to say it, very corrupt, health care system. It is highly commercialized system and decisions are made based on money. Not on your health.  The sick care system is about profit.  They benefit and make loads of money off of SICK people.  Did you know that as of November 2021, the value of big pharma was around 2.8 trillion dollars?  They aren't concerned with your health, it's just about the money honey! I'm going to say something, and I have a feeling that some of you may just roll your eyes. If you want to get FREE health care, you must get better at self-care. It's imperative and my friend it’s time. And I’m not talking about self-care like getting a pedicure or going to see a movie. I’m talking about realistic, sustainable daily habits of self-care that enable you to take control of your entire health. I'm outlining all the FREE things that you can do for your health so you can stay out of the very broken, very corrupt, health care (excuse me, sick care) system! As promised, here is a list of the previous podcasts that you may want to go back and listen to... Doctors experienced with Traditional Medicine and their journey into Functional Medicine Health Care or Sick Care? An Insider's Perspective with Dr. Amy Beard https://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com/health-or-sick-care.html#/ Broken Health Care with Dr. Carol Villaneuva https://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com/broken-healthcare.html#/ Ditch the Toxins, Lose Weight and Overcome the Overwhelm with Dr. Wendie Trubow https://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com/ditch-the-toxins.html#/ Part 1: Solving the Mystery of Low Libido and Adrenal Fatigue with Dr. Renee Wellenstein https://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com/libido-and-adrenal-fatigue-1.html#/ Exposing the Food Industry Part 2: What the Heck do I Eat?

Part 1: Solving the Mystery of Low Libido & Adrenal Fatigue with Dr. Renee Wellenstein
So, I have a question…How often do you struggle with your health while simply wearing a mask that everything is just fine? How often do you dismiss signs and symptoms that your body is telling you that something is remiss? Today begins a two-part series with Dr. Renee Wellenstein. You will hear her story of struggle, how an accident led to a dependence on pain meds, depression and a whole series of health problems and how doctors gave up on her.  She came to accept the cravings, fatigue, chronic pain, low libido, brain fog and low self-esteem as her norm and felt hopeless. It wasn’t until she met with a Functional Medicine doc that she finally felt hope as this doctor helped a fellow doctor get to the root of her health issues. In this podcast you will hear how to solve the mystery of low libido and adrenal fatigue. It’s not normal to be tired every day and struggle with cravings, and not have a sex drive. Let’s take off the mask and get to the real problem. Today on Healthy Harmony.

Shocking Truth about EMF & How to Protect Your Health with Justin Frandson
Shocking Truth about EMF & How to Protect Your Health with Justin Frandson
Toxicity. You’ve heard me discuss this topic before. I discuss it daily with my clients simply because a toxic body cannot lose weight. Even worse, a body that is toxic is much more susceptible to disease. So today, we are exploring that topic on an even deeper level and looking at toxicity that you are absorbing every single day and may not be aware of it...EMF...electromagnetic frequencies. Electromagnetic fields, also known as radiation, are frequencies of energy that exist on a spectrum from low to high energy. We get EMF’s from cell phones, laptops, Wi-Fi routers, smart meters, other electronic devices, and high-voltage power lines. As we look to level up with our health and look to everything that could be causing toxicity in the body we have to look at our electronic devices. Now, before you quickly click off this podcast because you start thinking... "well, shoot everything is bad for me, I give up!" Stop! You know good and well that you are feeling toxic, your body is holding onto extra weight, you don’t have the energy you used to have. You know it’s time to fully investigate what’s going on with your health and what could be causing it. It’s probably multi-factorial and this is important info you need to hear for both you and children. Listen and learn. This is our hot topic today on Healthy Harmony. In this podcast, we cover the following topics... What is EMF and why it is destroying our health The symptoms of EMF sensitivity including concussion type symptoms, seizures, poor sleep, cognitive decline, fatigue, anxiety and rapid aging. (Just to name a few!) How to meter the EMF levels in your home How to decrease EMF in your home How data grabbing, tracking and contact tracing is happening with your cell phone and what to do about it How to detox from EMF The benefits of grounding and earthing Our guest, Justin Frandson is an Athleticism Performance Coach that has worked with amateur and professional athletes for over the past two decades. He is the Founder of athleticism.com and EMFrocks.com He is one of the most respected Health/Performance Coaches in the country.

Why are Women Being Silenced? Top 7 Tips to Reclaim Your Health!
I'm warning you.  I get fired up in this podcast! I'm tired of standing by and seeing women get silenced by this ridiculous health care system! 78% of women are over medicated. This ticks me off. I hear stories every single day of women being silenced when it comes to their health. Women who have finally taken the time and demonstrated the courage to go to the doctor and say... "hey I need help, somethings wrong, I’m struggling!"  That woman is not listened to, no one takes the time to truly get to the root of the issue. She is given some prescriptions and then hustled out of the door. I see women like this every single day. Women of all ages who are struggling because of the side effects of those meds. It’s not helping. It’s making them worse. Throwing meds at a woman is a way to silence a woman. This "pill for an ill" approach is not working! Enough is enough!

You have good intentions yet it seems like you default back to survival mode. Before you know it, it's January 1st and you find yourself a burned out, stressed out wreck with extra weight.

Unfunc your Gut with Functional Medicine Physician Dr. Peter Kozlowski
Unfunc your Gut with Functional Medicine Physician Dr. Peter Kozlowski
Now listen, if I say the words gut health, I’m going to make the assumption that this is not on your priority list. You have a lot going on. The average person isn't thinking about gut health unless you are having issues. But what if I told you that gut health is the essential cornerstone to your overall health? That your joint pains, skin rashes, frequent illness, gastrointestinal distress and depression are all connected. It all comes back to your gut. That up to 75% of your immune function comes from your gut, 95% of your serotonin that feel good hormone is manufactured in your gut. If you want to look good and feel good, the secret lies in gut health. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to my guest, leading gut health expert, author and Functional Medicine doctor, Dr. Koz. This is our hot topic today on the Healthy Harmony podcast. Dr. Peter Kozlowski, affectionately known as Dr. Koz, is a Functional Medicine physician with a specialty in gut health and the author of Unfunc your Gut - Boost your Immune System, Heal your Gut and Unlock your Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Health.  Dr. Koz sees patients virtually and in person in his Chicago, Illinois and Bozeman, Montana offices. In Part 1 of this two-part series, Dr. Koz breaks down... How Functional Medicine is uniquely qualified to treat chronic disease What does good gut health look like? What destroys our gut health? Gut Health Testing Probiotics The link between Leaky Gut and Inflammation SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) Gut Health and Skin Health Gut health is a complicated science! What I absolutely LOVE about this podcast is that Dr. Koz has fantastic analogies and is easy to understand! Listen and learn. Before you go...most of you listening have no idea about health coaching. Because you have either had a bad experience or no experience at all. If listening to these hot topics on the podcast make you feel a little overwhelmed, please know you don’t have to figure it out alone. I do have a limited number of 1 hour virtual health coaching spots available.  One might have your name on it.

Intermittent Fasting for Women - Good Fit for You? Q & A
Intermittent Fasting for Women - Good Fit for You? Q & A
Ah the confusing world of Intermittent Fasting. What should you do based on your body and your life? Should men and women fast differently? Is there a difference how you should fast for pre-menopausal and post-menopausal women? How do you know if fasting is right for you?  I’m giving you the low down and answering your questions about IF today on Healthy Harmony. The podcast is chock full of info on fasting and nutrition.  The last two weeks we heard from health coach, Laurie Lewis as she discussed fasting.  This conversation was more geared for menopausal women.  I've had many clients say that IF did not work for them.  It leads me to the question of WHY? So, in this episode, I review the benefits of fasting but also provide insight to the downside of intermittent fasting.  There is little research on IF and 80% of that research studies men.  I'm giving you some things to consider if you want to adopt fasting as part of your health regimen.  In addition, I'm answering these listener's questions... Do I have to do the exact same fasting schedule every single day? What if I have a breakfast meeting one day? What is the best way to break a fast? At what hour do you hit autophagy? If you are fasting, are you still able to get in the proper nutrition you need each day? If I tend to eat “whole 30”, how do I stay full enough in my fasting window? Is there a difference in how a pre-menopausal woman should be fasting and how a post-menopausal woman should be fasting? Should men and women fast differently? I hope you find this helpful!  As I stated in the podcast, the research for these podcasts takes some time but I know this is a reliable resource for you! Speaking of, will you please do me a favor as a way of saying thanks?  Go to Apple iTunes and leave a rating and review! I appreciate you! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/inspire-healthy-harmony-health-transformation-functional/id1494961750 Hey girl, before you go...looking for community and encouragement?  Maybe a little bit of laughter and fun?

A Teen's Take on Nutrition - Mom and Son Chat Family Wellness
A Teen's Take on Nutrition - Mom and Son Chat Family Wellness
I can't believe I did this.  Clearly, I was feeling pretty gutsy and a little curious! I decided to have my son on the podcast! Every day I'm having discussions with moms about their health concerns and the conversation always shifts to their kids. As moms we want our kids to be healthy and it all feels so overwhelming. How do we teach our kids about nutrition and not be overbearing? How do we empower them to make good food choices? Well, you always hear me, why not hear from one of my kids? For the podcast, I got a little brave and decided to invite my 14-year-old son, JD to join me and talk about food and nutrition for healthy families. I wanted you to hear his perspective! In this podcast we talk about... Lunch Time, DIY Meal Prepping for Teens How to Talk to your Kids About Nutrition Nutrition for Athletes Importance of Hydration Rest and Recovery for Athletes Nutrition Strategies for Healthy Families All this and more with some funny stories thrown in.  I didn't know how this convo would go.  He is a 14-year-old boy after all! But I was so pleased to see that maybe he was listening all those times when I thought he wasn't. Our family is a work in progress. We do not have it all figured out. You know you try to impress healthy habits on your kids. But it’s not easy! There’s a lot of factors at play. But it was interesting listening to my son, there are some things that stuck! YAYY! Mama it really is up to you to teach your kids about nutrition! But the reality is you are already busy and overwhelmed. The stress is unrelenting and you are getting knocked down every day. Ready for the strategies to help you get back up? To help you become Resilient? I have something just for you.

How to Boost Your Family's Immunity with Nutritionist Elyse Wagner
You are sick of the news and sick of social media. But the reality is you don’t want to get SICK! You want to protect your health and you want to make sure you are doing all you can to protect your family’s health. It’s so overwhelming. How can you boost your family’s immune system? Are there some essential basics that need to be considered? You better believe it! And that is what we are talking about today on the Healthy Harmony podcast. Now, I see you cringing a little. You are wondering if I’m going to talk about the current virus or the drama and debate that is taking place. Nope! Not at all. That’s not what you need! You need to be encouraged and empowered and that is why I secured a special guest to do just that! Elyse Wagner has her own story of health challenges starting as a 13 year old child when she was nicknamed "obese Elyse."  She and her mom (her biggest advocate) found her the help she needed and she turned the struggle into a desire to help others.  Elyse is a nutritionist and a mental health counselor.  She was introduced to Functional Medicine while in graduate school when she was diagnosed with Celiac disease.  She made the empowering decision to become the CEO of her own health and found healing in a "food as medicine" approach. Elyse Wagner is the co-founder and Chief Wellness Officer of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.  She is a wife and mom and continues to be the CEO of her health and her family's health. Join Elyse and I as we dig into the crucial topic of immunity.  You will love this back to basics approach as we discuss sleep, food as medicine, stress and supplementation.  This podcast will leave you empowered to take control of you and your family's health and be confident that you are arming your immune system at a critical time. Real quick... If you are not a part of the FB group. You are missing out. We are in the middle of a 20 day Immune series. It’s not too late for you to join us. You can access that FB group by going to bit.ly/FMwomenswellness . Important Note... In the beginning of this podcast, you will hear Elyse share her powerful story and how a Functional Medicine doctor helped her uncover an autoimmune disease and encouraged her to step into her own health. You will also hear how overwhelmed she felt, and she wished she had a guide, an advocate a cheerleader to help her implement the suggestions from her Functional Medicine practitioner. I know many of you will relate to this, you need someone in your corner, someone to help you make the shift from knowing what to do to actually doing it. So, who can help you? My friend, this is what I do every single day. I want to help you overcome the overwhelm. I see all my clients virtually. And have 1-hour sessions available.

The Soul Needs More - Stop Living in Captivity and Walk in Freedom!
The Soul Needs More - Stop Living in Captivity and Walk in Freedom!
You feel it. The stress, overwhelm, anxiety. Your soul is burdened. It needs more. But we live in a world gone mad. How do you maintain your sanity and have an impact in the middle of the mess? Today I want to prepare you for battle. To expose you to areas of captivity so you don’t become a prisoner. I want to give you the keys to nourish your soul and live in freedom. I have something different for you today on the Healthy Harmony podcast.  I was asked to do a closing keynote address for the Early Childhood Christian Network.  The room was filled with over 500 preschool teachers and directors.  Many of them told me through their tears that this talk resonated with them.  So, I've repurposed it here for you.  My prayer is that it encourages you just like it encouraged them last week. Here's the reality...you can do all the right things.  Prepare clean, organic, healthy meals that are Pinterest and Insta worthy, have a solid workout routine, drink your water, read motivational books…but if your soul is not nourished you will never be fulfilled. You will never be truly healthy and live in freedom. Ever. So, what is holding you back?  Have you considered what might be keeping you captive? In this talk, I outline the four areas of captivity.  These areas of captivity are demonstrated with baggage, headphones, ball and chain and a mask. These areas include your past mistakes, guilt, shame, physical health, mental/emotional health, spiritual health, toxic thoughts, lies from the enemy and how we hide all of our struggles.  And then I outline the 5 "R" action plan to walk in freedom.  Be empowered as you learn about the vital importance of Reflect, Reject, Rally, Realign and Restore.  It's time to look at what is most important in self-care and that is soul-care my friend! Several links I want to make sure you have... Need to chat?  Book a 15-minute call here https://calendly.com/coachjennpickett/15min_discovery_call Ready to book a virtual, one-hour coaching session?

Live your Best Life at any Age with Clinical Psychologist, Andrew Fuller
Losing my mom was a major turning point in my life. It really made me evaluate how I was living my life. It is one of the reasons why I do what I do today as a health coach.  I know that life is short so I truly want to live life to the fullest and have nothing holding me back! So, I was thrilled to do this interview with Andrew Fuller, a clinical psychologist. His newest book is Your Best Life at Any Age. This is an encouraging discussion about realizing what stage of life you are in so that you can make little tweaks, small changes to shift your mindset, improve your relationships and take control of your health. It’s all about resiliency! Andrew Fuller is a Clinical Psychologist in Australia and has been described as someone who “puts the heart back into psychology”. He specializes in the wellbeing of young people and their families. He is a Fellow of the Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Learning and Educational Development at the University of Melbourne. For his latest book, YOUR BEST LIFE AT ANY AGE: How to Acknowledge Your Past, Revive Your Present & Realise Your Future,  Andrew interviewed over 500,000 people to trace the most commonly identifiable stages of life. Drawing upon his years of practical experience and the combined wisdom of the thousands of life patterns he’s studied, Andrew has created a blueprint for life that can help us all make the most of it at any age. Knowing the common pitfalls and traps one can fall into at a certain age can illuminate your thinking and lead you to a future you may have never envisioned for yourself.

What's Standing in Your Way? You Are! - 5 Healthy Lifestyle Habits of Successful Women
What's Standing in Your Way? You Are! - 5 Healthy Lifestyle Habits of Successful Women
You know what to do. You really do. You know what to do to get healthier and take control of your weight and overall health.  But there is a big difference between knowing and doing! That is where you get stuck! Want to know why you get stuck and can’t move forward? Are you tired of wondering what gets in the way? I’m going to be candid here. You are sister! YOU are getting in your own way! Want to know how I know this? I’ve struggled with the exact same thing! I get in my own way. I know better, I really do. So, since we have established that both of us struggle with the same self-sabotage, how about we chat about some effective ways to move forward? Today, I’m laying out the 5 healthy lifestyle habits of successful women. What does it take to be an overcomer and get out of your own way? Now that I said the "5 healthy lifestyle habits of successful women", I understand the tendency to look at that and automatically feel stressed, overwhelmed and start comparing yourself to others and feel inadequate.  I get it.  That is my tendency too!  But you have to realize that is self-sabotage and limiting beliefs.  Listen with an open mind and determine to get out of your own way!  As Maya Angelou says...when you know better, you do better! Before you go...this is TIME SENSITIVE!! You promised yourself you would get rid of the puffy. That you would start exercising again, drink more water, lose the weight before the summer. But time went by so fast, and you honestly didn’t have the time. Or the energy. You didn’t know where to start. To take control of your health feels so overwhelming! You have failed too many times before. Do you need some help? Need to know where to start? I have something just for you. Stop the Chaos - 10 Day Starter Detox starts June 21st. It is a simple, easy approach to kickstart your body towards detoxification, hormone balance and weight loss. WAIT, I know what you are thinking. You are thinking in terms of extremes. A harsh detox where you have to avoid everything, and it is virtually impossible. This is NOT, I repeat, NOT that kind of detox! This is the basics, the absolute essentials that you need so that you understand how your body detoxes on a regular basis. 10-day detox is a lifestyle detox.  It is the essential foundation that you have to master if you want to move forward!  Click here to learn more https://bit.ly/DetoxChallenge10 Here are the other links that I promised you...

Tired of Insomnia? How to Sleep Better with Lana Tomkinson
Tired of Insomnia? How to Sleep Better with Lana Tomkinson
Insomnia affects 1 in 4 women in the US.  You are all too familiar with insomnia...the inability to fall asleep OR stay asleep. And if you happen to struggle with depression and/or anxiety, you are more likely to struggle with insomnia. And I don’t have to tell you this, but insomnia is more likely to affect women than men. The Healthy Harmony podcast is all about women’s struggles and women’s health. That is why we have got to be talking about these things. That stat…1 in 4. I disagree. In my experience, coaching women on a daily basis. I would say 3 out of 4 women experience insomnia and it affects everything. Your mood, your food cravings, your immune system and yes, even your ability to lose weight. Hot topic? You better believe it. That is why I wanted you to hear from a sleep expert today on the Healthy Harmony podcast. Our guest, Lana Tomkinson, is based out of New Zealand. She is the founder of The Sleep Well Clinic for Women. Lana lived with insomnia, anxiety, depression and chronic disease. She learned how to beat them ALL and sleep well. She has a program to help women overcome insomnia for good and live a happier and healthier life. If you struggle with sleep, you do not want to miss this podcast!

The Struggle is Real - My story of Removing the Mask to Move Forward
The Struggle is Real - My story of Removing the Mask to Move Forward
A friend of mine walked in the other day with a t-shirt that read “It’s fine, I’m fine, everything is fine.” We all thought it was so funny. How often do we say that? It’s fine, I'm fine when everything is NOT fine! Like not at all. When we feel like we are a spiraling, out of control mess yet we wear a mask that says I’m fine, I’m good. A stupid, smiling, fake mask. How much of my life has been spent wearing a mask? It is exhausting wearing a mask! May is Mental Health Month. But let’s get real. We don’t need a ‘theme” month to tell us that we are struggling. I’m opening up about some of my struggles and some tips that help me cope. As usual, it’s real talk about real life today, on the Healthy Harmony podcast. I’ve gotten so skilled at putting on a mask.  I know what to do and what to say.  It’s simply a habit to smile and put on a good face and act like everything is okay. Wearing a mask is NOT healthy. Not dealing with your issues is NOT healthy. I’ve learned the hard way. It all catches up with you. One of the reasons that I’m so passionate about helping others is because I know what it feels like. To be struggling inside and saying I’m fine on the outside. I know what it feels like to be in a downward spiral, to be alone in a dark place, to feel hopeless. I know what it feels like to be living in captivity.  In this podcast, I discuss the top tips that helped me remove the mask so I could move forward! We all want to be happy and fulfilled! It's time to remove the mask so you can move forward.  This podcast will help you do just that! PS>>>Don't forget the FREE gift that I have for you!

From Hormone Hell to Feeling Well Part 4 - Foods for Healthy Hormone Harmony
From Hormone Hell to Feeling Well Part 4 - Foods for Healthy Hormone Harmony
Hormone imbalance and the symptoms that go with it can feel like a living hell! 🔥 We don’t want to live like that! Life is too short to be feeling miserable most of the time. But you can do something about it. Certain foods can keep your body functioning properly and keep your hormones in glorious harmony! Today is Part 4 in our series From Hormone Hell to Feeling Well. Last week we uncovered the foods that are wreaking havoc on your hormones and causing chaos. This week is so much fun we are revealing those foods for healthy hormone harmony. When we think about what we eat, our hormones may not come to mind. But hormones play such a vital role in the body. They are part of the endocrine system and help with growth and development, metabolism and digestion, fertility, stress, mood and much, much more. There are over 200 hormones in the body…..estrogen, testosterone, cortisol, insulin, leptin, ghrelin, thyroid hormones are the most well-known. What we eat affects not just the production of hormones but also the signaling pathways, the communication. So, the saying "you are what you eat" really holds true! Bottom line is you want a diet that is full of healthy fats like those found in coconut, avocado, olive oils, nuts and seeds. You need fiber and power antioxidants from fruits and vegetables and finally you need quality protein. You NEED real food.  And in today's podcast you get insight on the specific foods for healthy hormone harmony. Friend, before I go any further. I want you to know. I see you. I understand your pain, your struggle. You desperately want to take control of your health, to lose weight, to balance your hormones, to have the energy necessary for you to get through that never ending to do list.

Are you a stress eater?  Do you find yourself turning to food when emotions are running high?  I think a vast majority of us would answer "ummmm yes" to this question! Especially now when stress and emotions are at an all time high. 75% of overeating is due to emotions. We are eating our feelings and it’s affecting our health but what do we do about it? That's what we are talking about today on Healthy Harmony. Hey girls, can we just get real with each other?  So often we struggle but we think that we are alone in those struggles.  That other women have it all figured out and we are the only one who struggles!  This is FALSE.  No one has it all together! And as we come together and are open and honest, we find that we can relate! We share the same struggles.  Want to be in an amazing community of women who are open and honest and trying to improve their health just like you?  Click here https://bit.ly/FMwomenswellness Emotional eating is one of those struggles.  Especially now, as stress, fear and anxiety overwhelm!  Listen in as I unpack the relationship with food, look at the emotional response and empower you with specific coping strategies. After listening, I want you to simply reflect.  Are you at a point of desperation? Do you feel your health spiraling out of control? Do you find yourself responding to stress with emotional eating?  I have a solution that you need to consider. As a Health Coach, I work with women who struggle just like you do and I help them identify their obstacles and create a simple, realistic, customized action plan so they can live in FREEDOM!!

Soul Transformation - How Health Coach Jackie Found the Answer & then Discovered the Emptiness
There is so much we can learn from other people's stories. We see that we are not the only one who struggles. Today you will hear the story of Jackie Sanchez. Now, she is a Certified Health and Wellness Coach, an Instagram influencer and the Creator of Conscious Body. Then, she was a little girl who struggled with weight and body image and was put on her first diet at the age of 12. From cystic acne, tremendous weight gain and PCOS; Jackie was a girl that wouldn’t even go to college because she was so ashamed of her weight. After thinking she found the answer in Holistic studies and New Age, she discovered the emptiness and only temporary feelings of happiness. It wasn’t until a YouTube video and family friend opened her eyes, that she felt the blind fold fall away and Jesus Christ transformed her life. Jackie has had a complete body, mind and soul health transformation and today we are talking about the transformation of her soul. Listen to Part 1 of her eye-opening story today on Healthy Harmony and join us next week for the 2nd part of Jackie Sanchez's story as we dig into the mind and body aspect of her journey.

95% of diets fail. 95%! Wondering why there is such a high failure rate? Are you ready to ditch the diet and get off that diet hamster wheel? That’s what we are chatting today on Healthy Harmony. As I was prepping for this podcast, I felt myself thinking, Why bother? What purpose does this serve? The world has lost its mind!  But I was brought back to one thing. This is how I can help! This is how I can love and serve by bringing simple health information and encourage you to take control of your health. Your complete health…body, mind and soul. And if there is any time to protect your health, it’s now! Even though the world is spinning out of control, there are people in your life who depend on you. They need you, a healthy you. This is why self-care is so crucial. It’s not really so much about self as it is about others. When yourSELF is well, you can love well, care well and serve well. Today, we are talking diets. Why? Because it’s January and a vast majority of people vow to get healthier and start looking at diets as THE ANSWER. Now, I am going to disclose my bias…I’m anti-diet!  An Anti-diet dietitian.  And today I'm sharing with you the top 4 reasons that diets don't work! Can you imagine having someone to assess your body, mind and soul health and help you develop simple strategies to transform your health. Someone with the education and training and experience that doesn’t talk down to you or make you feel guilty but someone who empowers you and helps you feel like, I can do this! Can you imagine that?

Self Care vs. Soul Care During a Pandemic
Self Care vs. Soul Care During a Pandemic
That dreaded word, pandemic. Our world continues in fear as we search for truth vs. fiction. Today I'm getting real about the virus, my families personal experience with the virus and some thoughts on how we can truly protect ourselves. Here is the harsh reality.  Everything in me just wanted to "sound off" during this podcast about how this pandemic has been handled, but honestly; that's not going to help anyone.  And censorship is real!

LIVE Health Coaching - How Virginia is Finding Mind, Body & Soul Balance
LIVE Health Coaching - How Virginia is Finding Mind, Body & Soul Balance
Today is a podcast bonus with LIVE coaching! As a Dietitian turned FMHC who empowers women on their health transformation body, mind and soul, I’m finding that there are so many misconceptions about health coaching. Many people think that that it is a rigid environment where you are giving very strict guidelines about your diet. And you are made to feel guilty and ashamed for how you have treated your health in the past. Functional Medicine health coaching is different. It is about empowerment, encouragement, recognizing your strengths and helping you identify obstacles that are holding you back!  This LIVE Coaching episode with Virginia is real, raw and honest.  We identify some strengths and help her remember some "wins" that are benefiting her health.   Then we strategize specific ways for her to find balance in her Body, Mind and Soul. DON'T MISS THE HOLIDAY SPECIAL that I mentioned in this podcast.  To access your FREE gift...the Holiday Survival Guide - Beat Stress, Combat Cravings and Stay Joyful in the season and the special link that gives you a $48 off a virtual Health Coaching session, click here bit.ly/2020holidaysurvivalguide Here is the link to our previous podcast on Emotional Eating and Drinking https://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com/binge-eating-drinking.html#/

LIVE Coaching - How Michelle is putting the healthy back into Southern cooking
As if it is not hard enough to be healthy ourselves, we need to make sure our family is healthy.  This can seem like an overwhelming task especially when it comes to providing meals for our family.  Join me and my client, Michelle Kunder in this LIVE Coaching podcast episode.  This is a "mini" coaching session so that you can get a sneak peek of what it looks like to meet with a Health Coach. Both Michelle and I are girls from the deep South and understand how challenging it can be to feed your family healthy while holding true to some Southern tradition. Although this is an abbreviated coaching session, it is packed full of hot topics! We discuss processed foods, sugar, reading a food label, chemicals and preservatives in foods, navigating the grocery store, emotional eating and mindfulness. After listening to this, I think you will see that health coaching is more about empowerment and brainstorming. It is fun and encouraging! If you are like Michelle and you need someone to help you "fill in the blanks" when it comes to you and your families' health, consider booking a 1 hour virtual session with me!

Could my child have an eating disorder?
As parents we worry.  We are concerned about our child's physical wellbeing, emotional and mental health. And when you see your child have an obsession with food or their overall appearance; it begs the question...Is this normal or is this an eating disorder?  Listen in as I interview Kristen Cairns, Licensed Professional Counselor, as we discuss children and young adults' obsession with food, weight and overall appearance. Many of your questions about eating disorders, what to look for, how to communicate with your child and modeling healthy behavior towards food will be answered. Today's Guest: Kristen Cairns Kristen is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), specializing in working with teens and young adults with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and struggles with body image, self-esteem and self-worth. She has worked at all levels of care, from clinical inpatient to partial hospitalization, and now has an outpatient private practice in Dallas. She loves helping patients reconnect with their values and rediscover the freedom and joy that come from living authentically and in relationship.   You can connect with Kristen at www.kristencairnscounseling.com Note : Treatment of a diagnosed Eating Disorder needs to be handled by a professional who specializes in eating disorders.  As a Dietitian and Health Coach, eating disorders is not my specialty but I'm more than happy to guide you to someone who is.  That being said, I love to empower moms with a healthy outlook towards food so that they can have a positive impact at home.  To book a one-hour virtual session, please click here https://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com/coaching.html#/ __________________________________

What's the Big Deal About Algae?
What's the Big Deal About Algae?
Believe it or not algae is a true super food! Research shows it is the most alkaline, nutrient dense plant in the world that no one seems to be talking about!  Still think it sounds weird? The United Nations and NASA endorsed algae as the most nutrient dense food in the world. It could be a game changer for our health, our children’s and our world. ____________________________________ Http://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com Today's Guest: Catharine Arnston Catharine has had an outstanding career working for the Canadian and British governments, has founded three companies and is the publisher for an international magazine.  But she put all of this on hold when her sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2009 and told that she needed to change her diet.  Through the extensive research process to help her sister, she discovered the power of algae, the most alkaline, nutrient dense plant in the world that no one seemed to be talking about!  As Catharine dug into the science of algae, she learned it had 64% protein, 40 vitamins/minerals and was endorsed by the United Nations and NASA as the most nutrient dense food in the world. She also discovered there were 100,000 studies documenting its long list of benefits and yet algae remained virtually unknown outside of Asia. How could this be possible? Catharine knew algae could be a game changer for our health, our children and our world if she could only convince people it wasn't weird. Eight years in the making and ENERGYbits, an algae based supplement company was born.  Catharine is considered a national expert on nutritional benefits of algae and Energybits is the only algae company endorsed by doctors, nutritionists and Olympic athletes.   She has been featured on Shark Tank, CBS, NBC, Fox News, numerous podcasts including The Joe Rogan Experience and the Ben Greenfield podcast just to name a very few. __________________________________ Host: Jennifer Pickett One of the country’s leading dietitians, Jennifer Pickett has just announced that she will be launching a brand new podcast focusing on healthy living, holistic self-care, and encouragement.

How Fear, Anger, Stress and Bitterness affect your Health
How Fear, Anger, Stress and Bitterness affect your Health
It truly feels like we're in a horror movie that just won't stop. There is nothing that could have prepared us for such a extreme global pandemic resulting in a world wide quarantine, and then the dramatic unrest that is seeding in America, as we battle over the topic of racism. But as we struggle with fear and certainty, stress, anger, hatred, bitterness, the question remains... Are these feelings and emotions affecting our health? You better believe it. And the research supports this. A growing body of research shows that your state of mind may have a significant impact on your health and wellbeing. A recent study from Concordia University has found that constant bitterness can make a person ill. Holding on to bitterness, can affect metabolism, immune response and organ function, and may even lead to disease. Scientists for some time had been looking at what shapes health and what shapes illness. They've identified that personality traits are linked to health or lack thereof. Anger, and hostility being linked to physical illness. And optimism being linked to longevity! It's interesting and really makes the case for mind and body connection.  Listen in as we connect the dots on how stress, anger, fear and hatred affect not only our mental and emotional well being but most critically our physical health! Are our feelings and emotions weakening our immune system at the most crucial time?? This is our hot topic today on Healthy Harmony.   If you know you need additional support with regard to your total health...body, mind and soul.  Consider booking a 1 hour virtual coaching call.  Your Health Coaching session will be tailored exactly to your needs and struggles.  Book at https://www.inspirehealthyharmony.com/coaching.html#/ ____________________________________ I'm Jennifer Pickett, your host, your health coach and your friend.
