Bronchitis, IBM, Arthritis discussed on THE EMBC NETWORK



Into movement and that led into like fitness and that realm and so I have a brick and mortar plenty suit, which is where I'm now. The only place with power right now. And so my love of dancing movement kind of fit me in that direction. And I think just along that journey of movement and Pilates and all of that. I just fell in love with the human body and just learning all the things about the human body. And so I think there's kind of two parts of this where I think that kind of pushed me in this direction. Part of it was my movement background and my dance and all that. And as I started my studio, I wanted to really provide the women coming into my studio with a full comprehensive experience where they were getting everything they needed in one spot. So I wanted to offer the nutrition in the movement, you know, all the things. And so initially I started out just like basic nutrition coaching, right? Just like let me just give them some basic support. And then working with women, I realized that they were coming to me from using your code to your weight loss, right? But realizing from my perspective, like it was so much deeper than that. There was like hormonal issues and thyroid issues and inflammation. There's all these underlying things. And so I kind of drove me to really dive deeper into my own education to be able to reach those women at a deeper level and really getting down to the root cause of why they were coming to me for the weight loss thing in the first place. And so I dove in to get my diploma in holistic nutrition. I did the functional diagnostic nutrition program to be an FD and P. I did a bunch of other specialized certifications at care tissue mineral analysis, which you mentioned. Just to really get to that deep level. I think the other piece of my like origin story is I actually, I didn't, I had digestive issues growing up. And at the time, they said was IBS in, I mean, I'm sure it was IBS, but it's like, especially back then, it was like, I don't know what it is, it's IBS. Your stomach's messed up. They don't give you a protocol. There's no direction or anything. So as I got older, you know, I kind of took it by myself to educate myself. And I think that's also what, for me, and kind of the nutrition piece to dive deeper into that side because I was able to change my diet. I went vegan culture, geo decided one day I was going to try it. Maybe this is the thing that'll fix the things, you know? And I went cold turkey, vegan and my IBM, I mean all the things. My allergies, my IBS, all these things started to clear up for me. So putting together the pieces like, okay, like this nutrition piece really plays a huge part in how my body is functioning and all that. So I think there was kind of multi layers there of how I got here, but all in all, I just, I love the human body. I love helping women optimize their health and their bodies and to be able to function. Ultimately, and all of that yeah, amazing. It's so funny you say that about your childhood because I was had a group coaching call yesterday and three of the four women had this story. And I have a similar story growing up. Well, one of them grew up in a town that was literally a dairy town. So it was like sacrilege. The question. And she just had this every single person in her family has something, you know, even to the grandmother with arthritis, like so many health problems due to the level of consumption of dairy. And I grew up, you know, it's a no fault of my mother's. That was just like what was being taught at the 80s. Milk is healthy. Healthy. And you know, I used to drink leaders of skim milk, skim, of course. And I had horrible acne as a teenager, and I had chronic bronchitis, and I had in the earliest years I had chronic earaches and constantly taking antibiotics for that. Same. And at that point in the game to your point, nobody's nobody's questioning the diet to the degree that you know now. Right. Yeah, for sure. I think I had probably had at least three colonoscopies before I was, I don't know, I was in middle school, maybe 13. And again, I mean, I had indiscriminate, you know, all the things that redirection, like they did all the tests. But again, it came back like, oh, it's IBS. And like, okay, like that's it. Now what? So yeah, and same. I was drinking, but I did find out later, you know, there was electro intolerant situation, but I don't know what the doctors didn't figure that out. Like it was my mom's like, well, let's go get some more testing and see if there's any foods that are, you know, but there was no direction or protocol or anything like that. Yeah. So tell us a little bit more about the hair analysis because I find that that's so interesting. So clients give you a piece of their hair. Yeah, so it's actually, it's actually a teaspoon of hair. So yeah, I know, right? Very specific. There's a little paper scale that you put it on and it's very specific how much hair. But yeah, so basically, so as an FD and P I use functional labs to get to the root root cause of what's going on. And the HTML or hair tissue mineral analysis is giving you a look at your mineral levels. But of course, you know, you can go to the doctor and you can get a blood test. They'll do a blood test to test your mineral levels. But when you're looking at it from that perspective, it's a very small acute picture of what's going on, right? It's like this is what's going on at this moment in time. Not only that, but a lot of our minerals are intracellular, meaning they're in your cells. So for measuring your blood levels, it's not really the full picture of what's going on at a cellular level with your health and with your mental levels. So with the HTML, you're sitting in your hair and it's a look at what's going on chronically with your mineral levels. It's going on the past 90 to a 120 days with your mineral levels because it's what's being pushed out into your tissues. So it's looking at a couple dozen different minerals. Of course, the big ones, right? Like sodium magnesium, potassium calcium, the big ones that we need the most of. And then there's maybe 18 or 20 other micronutrients that it measures. It looks at heavy metals. It looks sad. Other toxic elements that could show up. And then it looks at the individual minerals, but it also looks at some relationships between the minerals. And the relationships, a lot of times they're more important in some instances than the actual individual mineral because their relationships, the ratios are going to show what's going on with your adrenals and your thyroid. And your carbon metabolism and your liver in how you're oxidizing things and your nervous system and so many other pieces where you can start to find patterns and connect dots and kind of see what's going on with all these other things, these symptoms, you know, that people are coming to me with. And then we connect dots with other labs that I do. And I always start with the mineral bouncing protocol first because minerals, they're considered probably heard this before. They're considered the smart plugs of the body. Without the minerals, enzymes can't do the things like there's no reactions that no reaction can happen in the body without the minerals. Like sparking the reaction. And so I find that before I started doing HTML, maybe my clients would have results in everything, but it was such a slow process because that piece was missing. Like when you connect that piece with everything else, it really does like jump start, what's going on with the healing process, so being able to balance out the minerals and kind of get that part functioning before addressing all these other things. So many questions. All right, let's start with. So do you usually recommend XYZ mineral is low? Do you give a protocol of eat more of this or you always solving things with supplements? It's both. That's a good question. It's both. So I work with the lab that specifically customizes their supplement protocol with the HTML. So I can either I can do it myself. I can look at the lab and I can create this custom protocol or I can send it to them and they can do it. But they customize it to exactly what they need. So they're looking at what's low, what's too high, what needs to be pushed out when needs to be balanced out. So there's that piece, the supplement piece is a big piece, but that it is
