Getting to the root cause of Adrenal Fatigue-Dr. Francesca Leblanc Episode #23
Dr. Francesca LeBlanc discusses her journey with adrenal fatigue in episode 23 of the Fredrickson Health Show  “No, it’s not in your head – you have adrenal fatigue.”  Finally. It had a name.

Of course, during times of stress, I have to practice extreme self-care as a proactive measure, but I can honestly say that despite running after two tiny humans, I live a pretty normal, symptom-free, joyful life.

Nasal breathing, sleep apnea, sleep quality vs quantity, airway inflammation, and so much more! With Ronda Holman-The Airway Champion
“In America, 70% of adults report that they obtain insufficient sleep at least one night a month, and 11% report insufficient sleep every night. It is estimated that sleep-related problems affect 50 to 70 million Americans of all ages and socioeconomic classes.” Ronda Holman is The Airway Champion at least that’s how you’ll know her if you’re on TikTok. She is a 21 year US Airforce trained dental assistant who has spent her entire career looking at airway disorders and their negative effects on the mouth. She has dedicated the last three years to helping patients and strangers understand the negative effects of oral breathing on their oral health. Ronda not only has a passion to help people discovered the root cause of so many non-communicable diseases, but she grew up with an undiagnosed airway disorder herself. After connecting the signs to the symptoms it is her mission to help others learn to see the signs so they can advocate for themselves. Many people do not understand the biomechanics of breathing. Nor do they understand the detrimental effects over-breathing/mouth breathing has on sleep quality. Ronda had extraction retraction orthodontics completed when she was 12 years old. She was diagnosed with upper airway resistance syndrome when she was 37 years old. Ronda then made a choice to either live with struggling to breathe during sleep every night and continue to watch her oral health decline or make a change to improve her airway health. She shares her passion every day to help people understand the difference between sleep and quality sleep and its inter-relationship between airway health and breathing. 0:00 Intro 0:15 Guest intro (Ronda Holman) 2:02 How did you get into this? 3:30 Start of the airway obstruction journey 6:15 Anatomy involved in breathing disorder 10:54 Why do we breathe the way we do? 11:48 What is proper airway breathing 14:06 Proper way to breathe 18:29 Breathing properly can save you from migraine 20:58 How to let kids breathe through their nose 24:00 Snoring Kids 27:15 Proper facial development 29:33 Is it too late to nasal breathe? 30:30 ALF (advanced lightwire functional) 33:02 Slouch and Posture 38:04 Biggest Influences 46:16 Sleep Questionnaire 48:23 Posture and Breathing Issues 49:46 Collaborative effort on this journey 53:27 Breathing Better to Weight loss 55:45 Elimination Diet 57:00 Recommendation 59:50 TikTok Viral 1:07:08 Sleep Hygiene Routine 1:10:58 Eating Windows 1:13:20 3 years from now 1:15:15 The Billboard Question 1:15:59 What health-related tool would you bring in a deserted island 1:17:01 Nutrition Supplement Routine 1:18:41 Where to find the Airway Champion

Retrain your Brain! Neurofeedback Therapy with Michael Meuth LaC
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, is a therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer-based program that assesses a client’s brainwave activity. The program then uses sound or visual signals to reorganize or retrain these brain signals. By responding to this process, clients learn to regulate and improve their brain function and to alleviate symptoms of various neurological and mental health disorders. In Fredrickson Health Solution episode 3, Michael Meuth describes his experience with Neurofeedback therapy and what individuals can expect when they use it as well. In the episode we dive into what Michael has seen in his practice for the past 7 years and what Neurofeedback can do to help individuals break through mental barriers and bust out of plateus! In addition  we talk about the differences in the types of brain waves, and how neurofeedback can help retrain or break bad patterns and habits!  Michael Meuth can be found on social media @ on InstaGram.
