Using The Keto-Alkaline Approach for Menopausal Women with Dr. Anna Cabeca

"Are the keys to mastering hormones. Now well i definitely say it's all about getting into that balance getting that peaceful state and always say there are three major hormones. We have to control right as gynecologist. I wanna say. it's progesterone estrogen testosterone. But it's really not to be honest. Insulin cortisol and then my absolutely favorite most powerful mormon in our body oxytocin. So it's those three that i teach now working with women as they're going through this midlife weight gain. I want to tell you this. I mean this is what i would tell. My patients kito Genyk guides don't work for women in this change of why they just don't work and i'll tell you what the reason is. I tell you go crazy. So what i found in my clinical practice understanding the research from decades ago looking at ketogenic diets thinking okay. You know sally you. You're forty five. You're gaining this way. Let's go and this buried carbohydrate restricted program and you know of course after we've done detox program. Let's go through this carbohydrate restricted program and this is the ketogenic this will help you burn fat and lose weight for sure. But you know when i would try to do and i'm like okay. Yeah no. I don't like myself this way. I'm getting irritable on edge of not appease. What's going on and my patients would say the same thing. So i said i call the keita crazy so as i as i hit this stage thinking okay well. What's the missing link here for women especially to avoid these symptoms and to empower their body into a fat-burning state which feels can feel really great. How do we create that balance. So that brought in the missing piece that we all know his functional medicine. Docs that's really key. When we detox people. We want them on an alkaline diet and i started checking i started having myself check my family friends etc. Check their urine. Okay they completely get an acidic urine. Ph let's not good long term. We need a good balance. We need to be alkaline. And acidic and our european and i help what you -ation so i started getting clients and myself alkaline. Burst and then going to kyoto says so starting eating more healthy greens carbohydrate bump talking about europe. And i know you know that. But i think that's where the literature gets really confusing like alkalinity. Doesn't matter it absolutely does. Our blood ph is gonna stay stable and we're going to rob our bones muscles etcetera in order to keep up ph stable but urinary will give us a good indication of what woods passing through our kidneys on a regular basis. What's our inflammatory know. What's going on from that cellular

"So let's let's dive into alcohol little bits. Can you explain what goes on in our brain when we become depend on. Alcohol mean for most of us some the people i work with. We started off his social drinkers in our twenties in office. No problems and then. By the time we got to our forties or fifties we were. We moved more into self-medication using it to manage all stress to relax so when we tried to cut down we found. We couldn't so that seems to be a very average story for for a woman have fifty sixty these days. So what's going on in our brain so everyone needs to manage stress. Our brain naturally creates a lot of stress because that kept our ancestors alive. So we're always alert for potential threats and we defined threats with neural pathways from whatever triggered your cortisol in the past so in the past whatever hurt you ever upset you whether it was big or small the chemical that was released connected neurons that turn on the chemical more easily today. So we're all challenge to find ways to manage the stress and the interesting fascinating thing is would ever worked when you were young that built a pathway. I came from sort of unhappy home and my father is given a free trip so all of a sudden my parents who never left home they were like traveling now. There are very fearful so that when they travel like they didn't leave the hotel much but is it came addicted to traveling. Because that was what i learned was like. Oh when you feel bad. You start researching a trip. I worked to save money for trip as soon as i took the trip. I focused on the next trip. So whenever i was upset about anything i focused on travelling at work.

Why Keto Might Not Be for You With Dr. Stephen Cabral

"Women are disproportionately more affected by kito than men and the older. You are the more disproportionately affected you are so meaning if you have a twenty year old health coach and we were all twenty one twenty year old health coaches right like i was a personal trainer in through college in my early twenties. And you can get away with almost anything and also your blood markers and everything also look fantastic but what happens is you're not dealing with carrying on life in your body so when you are when you're responsible for that you put your body in that type of a hermetic stressor that type of stressor you're gonna start to see thyroid levels go down you're gonna start to see estrogen dominance cortisol levels potentially rise in the short term. And what does that do well. It leads to then a slower and lower metabolic rate which some people are very proud of like. Oh i only need to eat fifteen hundred dollars a day now on. I'm just saying like that's not a good thing. You want to be able to eat as many calories as you can because that means that furnace is always running. So it's situations like that. That i think are really harming his industry and and i love this industry health and fitness. So it's just. It's just too bad. That i see a lot of that out

How to Test Hormone Levels at Home with the DUTCH Test

"To say what the dutch test is for everybody. Yeah that's a good point so it's actually an acronym stands for dried urine test for comprehensive hormones so it is not a dutch heritage test which we do get asked about but basically see strips of paper that you urinate on four sometimes five times in a day and you do it throughout the day because we're looking to get a rhythm we want to see your cortisol through the day and what we'll do is we'll take a weighted average of all your other hormones so you're progesterone estrogen your testosterone. We actually do pull those off of every single strip that you submit and so by getting it in urine as opposed to going for a blood draw which is a big question right. Just get my blood drawn. Well now a lot of people don't want to go to a lab and so they really like the convenience of doing this at home but the urine gives this extra added bonus in that you get to see where hormones go so bloodwork tells you how much you have s- floating around in circulation in your in kind of gives you a better snapshot of how much you hadn't circulation and then how it gets processed which is really important for women especially when we're looking at estrogen because all women freak out about estrogen and the way estrogen is processed can. Tell us if we should freak out or not and so it is definitely helpful to go if you choose to go on hormone replacement therapy on on estrogen. Or maybe you're just feeling astra you've been told. You've estrogen dominance like let's figure out what's going on in these pathways that we find in the urine. Are you going down the wrong pathway. Or you're stuck maybe you're pathways blocked and then we can work backwards and app unblock and unplug and re divert so that you feel more balanced and that's what's that's what's great about dutch because you can do it at home then you all this information

What Are the Pros and Cons of Carb Cycling?

"You to really think about your diet is that you want to be metabolic flexible. What does that mean well. In the sugar impact died. I talk about being a sugar burner versus a fat burner. You don't wanna be a sugar burner the you know. You're sugar burners you lose weight. You don't lose your waist that's making you worse. Not better by the way you don't want that and if you can't go more than two to three hours without getting that term that they made that henry term so you've never ever just forgotten eat in fact that's the sign that you're a fat burner is you can easily go hours without eating you actually. Sometimes we'll go. god. I eat lunch. That's one in you lose weight off your waist until obviously you don't want to be the sugar burn in fact which you really wanna be is Is able to burn sugar. Able to burn fat and able to burn tones meal the cycle back and forth so that depending on where you are in your cycle. If you're a cycling female for what you're doing with your exercise you can bring the carbohydrates up or you can move into more of a cheetah genyk low carb diet and your body can easily shift back and forth. So i want us to really rethink this and that we want to cross train our diet now. This is important because like where kina genyk die to near mint. Fasting can be therapeutic. And especially when you look at like More extended fasting can be therapeutic for anti-aging for stimulating stem cells for immune health forgetting blood sugar balance. If you do it longer term same with too much keita. Do kito longer term specially for women in some women. This could create some stress responses and can actually start to mess up your periods It can start to mess up your dreams and your cortisol. So that's what you wanna think of. And that's why. I really like the idea of your diet because if you think about it like that's what we would naturally do. If this was a thousand years ago we would have had more fruit during the summer. Not really in the winter so we would have eaten more of that gained some weight by the way the days would have been longer. We would've been staying up later. We would have been more insulin resistant. We would have stored more fat so that during the winter when we didn't have access to that and we're eating more things like ham akin and fats and going into kit. Hoses we can use that stored body fat for fuel so we naturally are supposed to cycle. Were supposed to be able to miss meals and not have it be a total crisis

Nine years she's a natural health practitioner Licensed professional coach a certified rakia professional and a registered yoga teacher. So she's got a lot to offer us today around the subject of wellness nicole. Such a privilege to have you with us today. Oh it's my privileges thank you for having me saul absolutely so before we get into the nuts and bolts and You know what you guys do. Tell us a little bit about you. And what exactly inspires your work in healthcare while i think you know when miraculous things come about for a for each of us when we know what our life's work is it kind of happens interesting way and sometimes we're like what are we doing here. What's how is this happening. But you know for me it was. You know my own health journey. That started some ways of looking at medicine differently health differently wellbeing what that means and just taking a kind of a different path. You know i was somebody who i was. Now it's been over. Twenty years was diagnosed with a health condition. Ulcer at an early age. That was when i was thirty and just some of the things that had come up about. That was just something that i wasn't willing to do and i just started to dig in look at some other ways of going about it and i think that this happens with different people you now. You're just like that doesn't seem to vibe too well. And what are some of the other routes to go and You know. I think that's really were coming into a time. As far as inspiration with healthcare so much has changed within healthcare and people are really on looking at getting to the root of what's going on and maybe not so much of going for a quick fix on one eight to really know why they're feeling the feelings. They are why their body is feeling such a way why they have these sort of annul. Host of imbalances are things that are showing up. Maybe not going that quick fix route anymore. Because it hasn't really you know maybe it's been more like a band aid instead of just really finding out what's going deeper and deeper and that's really. What kind of inspires me. I inspire people to help them understand a variety of things that i want struggled with for example like fighter flight or adrenaline. And cortisol know. We're in a situation where people are very highly stressed and i was one of those as well. I think i came out of the womb stressed. I was in that situation and we don't a lot of times go into You know when when you see Practitioner that they really talk about. They say oh eat better or exercise more or something like that but but why is that. Why is there this constant strive cycle that happens and then how do we really get out from underneath it so that was a piece of it and then also i'm really inspired by talking to people about their thoughts. You know how their thoughts play a tremendous role in one house. You know i'm sure you know this. You know. I mean it's anyone who's doing anything and business. The sometimes you just gotta be pumping yourself up right on on how to move through things and so thoughts play a big role. And how often is that. Maybe talked about you know in traditional healthcare and then getting back to the way our ancestors ate and the way that we used to eat and how food impacts our body and how it you know creates such a bigger connection to our inner world in ourselves and loving ourselves knots to give ourselves fuel instead of just picking up a box you know of something that's been fortified and then also i'd say like emotions. Emotions are really part. I think most people have learned in their life to not address the motions that it's a old conditioning. Like oh just kind of stuff it in there unless you've gone down a different paradigm but that's really getting broken into now. I mean i think we can look at our world and say that you know. It's very important to be a dresser emotions in a healthy way so that it's not you know going out in projecting on other people and so these are all like very important pieces of like a whole picture which i say well being being well which is more than just the body. It's about the whole person. And so i love that i love that. Were going into different areas within the whole you know the whole person emotion the mind the feelings a you know the body things like that so very very important to inspires.

Embracing Self-Care with Mary Hyatt

"You are a very multifaceted kind of person. You're you're a yoga instructor therapist. Your life coach. You are very knowledgeable about essential oils. How did you discover your strengths to did these things just kind of fall in your lap or how did this all come about for you. You know it's so fascinating. I think like when you hear. Somebody's resume or their out. And you're like wow like. They're an expert at xyz or whatever and yet at least for me which i would imagine. This is true for most people. It's like a journey. Along the way we start picking up these interests and facets of what is drawing your attention and for me. It was all from my own personal healing journey. And if we were to rewind the clock like eight years ago you would have a very different mary. I was about eighty pounds heavier than i am now. I was dealing with like really extreme anxiety and depression. I wasn't a marriage that was just not healthy and not ultimately life-giving and i really had no sense of purpose. No sense of identity and was dealing with autoimmune staff so it was like the culmination of somebody who has totally just lost themselves and i was almost like sleepwalking through life is what it felt like in so there was this moment. I can remember so clearly where it was like. Okay either this is going to go to a bad place really really quickly and it was already kind of spiraling in getting to that point. Or there's got to be more to life than this. Like surely little flicker of hope shirley there's more to life than this and thank god. I listened to that voice of. There's there's more here and started this journey of self discovery and started to come into. What made me come alive. And and authentic and learning about myself and learning about my own feminity and my own just essence as a woman and so little by little. I started kind of adding these different tools to my toolbox That me to do my own work. Further and then ultimately as a life coach now be able to give that gift as medicine two other women who've been on a similar journey so it's kind of like my own work that now gets to be given to others your podcast. I've tuned into a couple of episodes. You're actually right now at the time of this recording. Your your theme for the month is femininity. Yeah and i think that was one of the reasons why i was like okay. Wow when we're here on the get foxy show. That's one of the things that i felt like i wanted to do for my listeners. Was to help them. Learn more about cultivating an amplifying their own divinely given feminine entity and so. Oh mary she's she's she's Needs to be on this show. so what. What have you been discussing on your podcast over the last couple of weeks hot. Oh my gosh. It's so juicy. It's like literally my favorite month so far and i feel like every month. We talk about just amazing topics around self-discovery and mindset and so to end the year as we're recording this in this this topic of feminity is so beautiful because there's all different ways of looking at it. i mean the reality is. Is that this. Concept of femininity. In and of itself is deep. There's a lot of different ways. You could approach it and so on the pike cast. We're looking at that. we're looking at. How do you personally define your own femininity because we're getting all these messages from diet culture from the fashion industry from the porn industry. On what it is to be a woman you have to look certain way you have to behave a certain way. Even on google like the definition of femininity is like agreeable and pleasing and cooperative and quiet. It's just as outdated one dimensional definition of what it is to be a woman so on the show. We're getting to explore like okay. If i could look at the totality of myself as a woman the essence of what makes me divinely female. What does that even look like. How do i even begin to experience her. And not just from what. I've been told from childhood or religion or culturally. You know i know that Especially now as even tricky because we are more out there than ever as women and working were raising children. We are in unconventional relationships. We are in a way trying to do it all. And it's exhausting us. I mean it's really depleting acids burning us out and so it still trying to figure out. How do i define this in a new way. That isn't like in the confines masculinity like. I don't have to work like a man. I don't have to produce like a manner achieve like a man was. It looked like to do that as a woman. So those are kind of the the surface level things that we're talking about on the show and then we're getting into all the fund woohoo staff about your menstrual cycle and the moon cycle and astrology. An archetype. so it's like real a wide range of different lenses in looking at feminine entity. that's fantastic. Yeah i will put a link in the show notes to that specific episode. And it's it's one of the episodes that i tuned into law. You guys are talking some very fascinating stuff that you mentioned how inner in our culture were to a point now where women are trying to do so much and where so many different hats that they're beginning to experience are have already experienced burn. How do you help someone recover from this and really kind of start embracing taking care of themselves. You know i think. I just xfl because like it really is something that is so prevalent right now that just depletion that deprivation an of self care and taking care of the needs that we have and it's bread. Ns almost taught to us from a very early age to give and give and give and give and be yes women to be people pleasers to do it all then you mix that in with like okay now. I'm feeling liberated. And i'm feeling independent in so i want to achieve all of these things and be the best version of myself and the reality is is that no human male or female can keep up with that kind of twenty four seven all in kind of demand for their lives and so to me when we can begin to look at first of all where my feeling deprived like i think we kind of have to almost diagnose the situation i and figure out where we're feeling exhausted. What's exhausted in our lives and get really honest. First and foremost about what's draining ass. What siphoning off our energy because no amount of self care can sort of cover up win we keep in the same patterns that are going to deplete us like that piece has to shift in order to experience something different and so i is identifying where am i at you know from a scale of one to ten on the burn out scale. Where am i am. I am handling it in my functioning. M i barely functioning am i to the point where i feel like i could have a mental breakdown and blow up at any moment which i feel like a lot of us are at that place you know. It's like the covid fatigue. The twenty twenty fatigue is really setting in and our bandwidth is is not what it normally would be and so i think the first step is going okay. I'm i'm really exhausted here. I'm struggling and from that place. Then we can look what needs to shift and starting to identify those warning signs that come into play that are ever so gently to the point. Where it's that little twinge of this is to match and say yes. And then oop i'm over committed and we say more and the point. Eventually we're most of us get total. Burnout is where it's like. Our body is shutting down our adrenals or shot are cortisol levels are depleted our vitamin d is depleted like everything within our physical bodies emotionally and just from a health. Standpoint is gone like the reserve has gone. So that's kind of like the the level ten on that scale. So let's look at where we at been. We can think about recovery replenishment and rejuvenation from a very holistic point of view.

"Hi brian how are you doing good tricia. Thanks so much for inviting me tonight. Of course i'm so happy to have you. I know we go back a long long way. Known your family for almost thirty years and talk. Yeah your sister definitely started working for you guys twenty years ago. I miss you guys all the time. But after knowing you guys for so long and hot in for shopping at this flower shop for so long i know you are the guy to go to when it comes to talking about like more natural solutions for for repair essentially and for just for overall health. So what i did was like crowd sourced. And i got all the best questions from everybody and they are dying to pick your brain how they can recover in sobriety so i have won the honor of being the biggest erred so yes definitely be happy to answer those well. Let's get the party. Started the number. One thing that people want to know about is sugar cravings eliminate alcohol and then all of a sudden. We're dying for sugar. How can people deal with this in a healthier way. It's a great question. Tricia in is not just for alcohol. I mean this is type. Two diabetes is probably such fast growing disease in our country. Right now and so really. It's blood sugar. Prominent everybody is happy and so when it comes to that question. I always like to talk about the chemistry of the body a little bit and some people get bored with chemistry. But it's important understand our body a little bit more so you can understand why we do this and not that and so i like to talk about the hormone cortisol. Most people heard this hormone. Because it's your stress hormone so when you're under stress your body produces more cortisol. The problem is actually to other things that drive cortisol to go high in the body beside stress. The second thing that drives cortisol is is inflammation. And we know that alcohol can be one of the contributors of inflammation and the third thing that tribes cortisol up is drops in blood sugar. So when we were going through drinking binges or maybe eating too many carbs sugars you were just causing your your sugar to spike and crash throughout the day and this also made this hormone cortisol do the same thing so when this cortisol mechanism gets engaged. You're basically engaging most people know asked the fight or flight syndrome we talk about fight or flight all the time in recovery for sure. That's right. Because i like to talk about it on the chemistry level because we all heard the term stress did no one knows what that really means to the body. So i'm gonna put it in trying to pitch this through our audio here. What cortisol is that fight or flight hormone which means you were designed to run away from danger but you really weren't meant to eat and run at the same time so what the body does particularly what cortisol does is that when cortisol goes high is suppressed Digestive function. so this is a lot of people are not hungry when their cortisol is. Hi how many of you are waking up in the morning and you're not hungry till eleven twelve clock. That is not normal. We've most of us should be hungry as soon as we wake up. Because we've been fasting through the night but that's not way most of america's going right now so this is leading to an issue really of this sugar dysregulation so maybe night we had too many carbs. We are chocolate and popcorn and glass of wine percent people then basically. We spiked her blood. Sugar up in when that blood sugar starts to crash. Cortisol starts to go up so when we are suppressing our digestive system with this cortisol hormone. And now you decide to eat that piece of chicken or that hamburger whatever it is that protein yours. Your digestion has an acid in your stomach called. Hcl that's supposed to break down these proteins but when it's under suppression. The food sits in the stomach. Too long inserts to ferment. And so a lot of people start experiencing some bloating or belching or more gas sometimes. If it goes on long enough it turns no heartburn indigestion and then these undigested proteins that undigested piece of chicken that did not break down very well starts to go into your small intestines and now your small tested that proteins too big to be absorbed properly so your immune system starts to attack that piece of protein. It basically treats it like an allergy and so in other words now it starts to create an inflammatory response in the gi track and that can lead towards more that ibs type symptoms. Now we're dealing with constipation loose bowels. You know if it goes on long enough to really call so law. Problems with diverticulitis crowns other big problems and long term. But i just want most people don't understand let's back up for a second cortisol. Goza suppresses your digestion. We sort of lose appetite food that we are eating or not digesting. That will so now it's going into the small intestines undigested causing an immune system attack. Eighty percent of your immune systems in the gut. So that's why these proteins enter the g. I tried harshly. Undigested your immune system sees those as allergens and it will tack that protein to get out there any protein while your body is in fight or flight for long-term you're gonna have trouble breaking down those proteins without support

Because it's your stress hormone so when you're under stress your body produces more cortisol. The problem is actually to other things that drive cortisol to go high in the body beside stress. The second thing that drives cortisol is is inflammation. And we know that alcohol can be one of the contributors of inflammation and the third thing that tribes cortisol up is drops in blood sugar. So when we were going through drinking binges or maybe eating too many carbs sugars you were just causing your your sugar to spike and crash throughout the day and this also made this hormone cortisol do the same thing so when this cortisol mechanism gets engaged. You're basically engaging most people know asked the fight or flight syndrome we talk about fight or flight all the time in recovery for sure. That's right. Because i like to talk about it on the chemistry level because we all heard the term stress did no one knows what that really means to the body. So i'm gonna put it in trying to pitch this through our audio here. What cortisol is that fight or flight hormone which means you were designed to run away from danger but you really weren't meant to eat and run at the same time so what the body does particularly what cortisol does is that when cortisol goes high is suppressed Digestive function. so this is a lot of people are not hungry when their cortisol is. Hi how many of you are waking up in the morning and you're not hungry till eleven twelve clock. That is not normal. We've most of us should be hungry as soon as we wake up. Because we've been fasting through the night but that's not way most of america's going right now so this is leading to an issue really of this sugar dysregulation so maybe night we had too many carbs. We are chocolate and popcorn and glass of wine percent people then basically. We spiked her blood. Sugar up in when that blood sugar starts to crash. Cortisol starts to go up so when we are suppressing our digestive system with this cortisol hormone. And now you decide to eat that piece of chicken or that hamburger whatever it is that protein yours. Your digestion has an acid in your stomach called. Hcl that's supposed to break down these proteins but when it's under suppression. The food sits in the stomach. Too long inserts to ferment. And so a lot of people start experiencing some bloating or belching or more gas sometimes. If it goes on long enough it turns no heartburn indigestion and then these undigested proteins that undigested piece of chicken that did not break down very well starts to go into your small intestines and now your small tested that proteins too big to be absorbed properly so your immune system starts to attack that piece of protein. It basically treats it like an allergy and so in other words now it starts to create an inflammatory response in the gi track and that can lead towards more that ibs type symptoms. Now we're dealing with constipation loose bowels. You know if it goes on long enough to really call so law. Problems with diverticulitis crowns other big problems and long term. But i just want most people don't understand let's back up for a second cortisol. Goza suppresses your digestion. We sort of lose appetite food that we are eating or not digesting. That will so now it's going into the small intestines undigested causing an immune system attack. Eighty percent of your immune systems in the gut. So that's why these proteins enter the g. I tried harshly. Undigested your immune system sees those as allergens and it will tack that protein to get out there any protein while your body is in fight or flight for long-term you're gonna have trouble breaking down those proteins without support

"cortisol" Discussed on SuperTalk WTN 99.7

"You here's a classical sign. You need a mid afternoon nap now. Not that you take one, but it feels like after lunch. Oh, I could go take me a nap right now. Sleep for 2030 minutes. That is adrenal fatigue. Your dream knows have a hormone called cortisol. That quarters all runs on a circadian rhythm, meaning that that court is all should be high in the morning to wake you up. If you're not a morning person, it's probably because your quarters are is low. Um And then it should drop a little bit at lunch. If it drops too much. That's where you get that afternoon slump, then it should drop a little bit at dinner time and be at its lowest at bedtime. We do a test on that. It's called the A S. I test it stands for adrenal stress Index test. We do that on everyone that comes in and gets on a program. And what that does is that shows us that circadian rhythm so you could have high cortisol And here you're trying to go to sleep and you have high cortisol and high cortisol will keep you in high gear. So you can't sleep at night. You're trying to wake up in the morning and you got low quarters. All that's when you should have the highest in the morning and you can't wake up at night. These arm not morning, people. If they're forced to get up. You don't want to talk to him. They're going to snap at you. They're going to tell you To be quiet, Eh? So you just let him be for awhile. Let him wake up. Give them their cup of coffee. That's another sign you wake up in the morning. And you first thing you want to get is a cup of coffee. That's your dream knows you're that caffeine in the coffee stimulates the adrenals to wake him up. So that's a sign that you may be in adrenal. Uh, issue. You may have adrenals problems now, Audrey. No people, one of the mood symptoms. Is anxiety so thyroid, it can express itself as depression. But a dream knows expresses itself as anxiety. So if you're all of a sudden or slowly over time, having anxiety Well, it could be your dream, Nels. I get people in all the time, and a lot of them are on anxiety, Medicine, anti anxiety medicine. And here, they don't need the medicine. They need their DRI nose looked at on. Now We have to get him off of the anti anxiety medicine and handled their dream girls when they come in, because, in my opinion, they were misdiagnosed. It's not the mental thing. It's a physical thing. You get the body working properly in a lot of these symptoms. Start to go away just by given the body the nutrition it wants. So having said that, let me read you. Another success story here. On this one here. What was on the thyroid? I was tired all the time, but I could not sleep at night. I would stay up all night with my mind wandering and racing. I had a lot of mood swings, no matter what I did. I could not lose weight. I was so discouraged. How are you? Now? I can now sleep When I go to bed. I fall asleep quickly. My mind no longer wanders or races..

Protect Your Sobriety Through Holiday Stress

"To this topic today about overcoming the overwhelm of holiday stress protect your sobriety through holiday stress. Okay that's what we're going to be focused on and you know the first thing i'm gonna talk about is planning ahead. Holiday season comes at the same time every year. There is no excuse for not being prepared. This season will probably be a little different because of corona virus. I know for me. Some of our family isn't going to travel just to be safe so our celebration will be smaller than normal. But i'm already thinking about my plan for myself right. There's no reason to sit back and do nothing and wait for the overwhelmed to crush you when you know it's coming and holidays stress isn't only about the parties and drinking either. There is added stress of preparation for travel or prep for people. Staying in your home. Cooking and baking. Like i talked about a minute ago. The grocery shopping for all the cooking and baking and of course the holiday gift shopping being surrounded by family members that we don't know all that well being in crowds social anxiety. All of it is exaggerated in at a higher level than normal and then throw in the corona virus on top of it all and the stress of trying to stay safe. Keep your family saved decide whether to have your celebration or not travel or not staying socially distanced through all the grocery shopping and gift shopping. I mean it's a lot it's just a lot. Did i even mention the financial stress of it. All i mean money money money going out every frigging direction. It's kind of funny to me too. Like i said holiday season comes the same time every year. So it's always a little bit amusing to me when i don't think about it earlier. You know what. I mean like the last couple of years. I've been really good about doing some of my shopping much earlier in the year. Instead of leaving it all till the last minute because it is stressful. I don't care if you have ten million dollars in the bank like it is stressful. When you just see your money going going going going going every direction so we all have stress in our everyday lives on some level right in the short term stress can be good it gives us a shot of cortisol and adrenaline and your body goodson action mode and keeps you focused and helps you get things done. But you can't live in that state long term you'll start having all kinds of crazy side effects mentally and physically. And it's just not sustainable. What i want you to focus on in the next couple of weeks is getting a plan together for yourself not just thinking about it. Haphazardly but really mapping out a plan to protect yourself protect your sobriety and keep your stress manageable. So you don't end up vulnerable to the drink right it out in your journal talk it through with your sponsor or your coach or your accountability. Person have a thorough plan in place for those of you. Who are really doing the sober thing and have made a true commitment. You've probably already started thinking about this. And the first thing i want you to think about is having some boundaries boundaries. Around your time and your schedule okay. I am a person who needs to take a time out here and there. I need to step away from the work. The phone the computer the family the dog the everything i need a few minutes to decompress get my thoughts in order and give myself a little pep talk and i need to do that in silence so the way i do. This is when i'm in any type of group situation whether it's business related friends or family or a. My escape is always to the bathroom. And if you've listened to this podcast for any length of time or for sure if you've been on a coaching call with me. You already know this is my thing my group actually in my six week program right now. We're just laughing at me about this the other day. But it's so true. We all have to go to the bathroom multiple times a day. Excusing yourself to the bathroom is acceptable in normal in any situation. Like it's the perfect escape if you need a minute so use that

That's why today we're going to do a breath work session with the music with the breadth with me guiding you through the process. But before that. I wanted to quickly talk about what breath work does for your body and a device that has recently caught my attention lately. There is helping me switch off my negative stress. And then we'll begin our session together all right so firstly stress. Activates your fight or flight. Sympathetic response leaves you feeling distracted overwhelmed and makes it difficult for you to get sleep. Stress also plays a key role in our evaluation sometimes especially to run away from a predator or to solve it challenging problem. You need the energy to make it happen. That's when your heart rate increases your cortisol levels rise and your blood shoots to your limbs but this is like stepping on your gas pedal of your car and it's not really sustainable because you need to at some point switch off your stress and start relaxing so their energy can be used for other functions like digestion and sleep and creativity when that switch off does not take place. Your body is constantly releasing stress. Hormones like cortisol making your breathing shallow and fast and sending your heart rates up and your heart rate variability down. What does hundred variability h. r. e. which is most reliable invasive biometric of stress measures the balance between your batta sympathetic rest and digest nova system. And you're sympathetic. Which is your fight and flight branch of your nervous system. A high heart rate variability gender lee indicates a strong guardia vascular system and low levels of stress being in a constant state of fight or flight makes it physiologically harder to focus harder to meditate. Relax sleep or even exercise because your body and your mind think that you are under threat and needs to be escaping danger and not sleeping not focusing on your work now like i said this does of abyss.

Avoiding Weight Gain At Work

"It'll be no surprise that people have desktops tend to have a high a tendency to gain weight than an always on your feet type of role. Deadlines working from home and endless commitments can become all consuming with convenience often deriving our relationship with food. For getting that baking that went out doing at home and snacked rules that full. Thankfully are easy ways to control the influence that walk is having on your weight. This week's food for thought sees registered nutritionist Amelia Thompson, and I explore how you manage your weight combat stress and hopefully based you'll meet while working. Hello, Amelia. Hi. Hi. Thank you so much for coming on fever thought today. It's a topic that I know a lot of people are going to want to hear. Some troops behind and I'm going to start today's episode by saying that first of all wait is of course, extremely sensitive. It's individual in the language I think that we use is quite interesting when we discuss something like wait. So obviously, we can't. Contribute it to one specific reason. But how strong do you think the link is between? I guess being stressed than because I suppose stress must have a huge impact on people's lives. Yet and again, there is research in regards to to work stress and we know that the kind of level workshops that people perceive. So obviously, this is vague qualitative. This is so recorded stress. It's not a quantitative measure Percy, but we know that that does correlate with week gain. Interestingly, actually taint to be a stronger correlation people who are actually already over we and when I use this term overweight and obese I am talking about that kind of could BMI measure which does give us some indication of what competition. So actually those people in the kind of overweight or obese categories to begin with who they inexpedient strikes actually tend to struggle more on on at least two. More Waking Louis people who already maintain what we'd call a cool cool healthy weight. Yes. Sir Interesting 'cause I mean mentioned BMI and we know that we've discussed this multiple times on the podcast that it's not always the most accurate measure but we should also acknowledge I. Guess the stress at work can impact on some people perhaps going the other way and actually eating less as well. Couldn't it? Yet and I think that offer tends to be more of a short term response where we get not initial stress just where we get increase in cortisol arm we have. What we call impacted dominance a week fall into that fight or flight mode and not short-term wants does tend to reduce hunger levels and we tend to eat less and I think works Sean at Green what we'd find with people who have a lower body we Are Those people that use food almost as a way to control something when feel very out of control potentially in their work environment so distresses impacting their work vehemently feeling Sarasin, and so they fall to two can find that certainty. I think that's often where we find out reduction body we and but predominantly does take to be longer term chronic changes does to be people actually dookie weight and response to these works strays ours. Yeah. Of course, and do you think there's agenda thing going on as well? Perhaps, a different way that men and women tend to react. Yeah I think. So again, when we look at coping mechanisms for men and women and women tend to turn more towards fit and maintained to turn more towards our caller smoking. So and there was a study that looked at men and women linked to obesity and structurally to eating, and actually there was only a relationship finding the women and actually main have this relationship between stress and obesity. So it may not that that women are unhealthy are parasail because you know if men are turning to things like alcohol or smoking that's not necessarily healthier, but it's just that the detained to fall towards. District coping mechanisms not women. So this does tend to be more focused and women at least in terms of strikes in the workplace.

You're not adding the cortisol demand in the second half of the cycle And that again. You're doing a right workouts doing doing those. Two things will decrease your stress levels dramatically in the second half of the cycle and by the way if any of you are struggling with moody phase anxiety or depression or mood swings irritability again just doing these first two components of the cycle sinking method with the food and the fitness you will see in enormous impact in a positive way on your mood and your energy levels and again it just. It's remarkable. What happens when he started taking care of this biological rhythms so I think we have to look at stress as external stress right things that are like? I don't know the kids are driving you crazy having friction in in your your relationship. Something is going on stressful at work. And that these are things that involve other people that are outside of your control and that's just life and we all have to learn how to balance our emotional react in those situations to not take things personally and to really rise above and figure out how to navigate that with a lot of emotional intelligence but then there there are the types of stressors that can be managed by understanding me inflating rhythm so for example we just talked about how you can create create unnecessary amounts of stress Cortisol level in the body by eating and exercising incorrectly during the face for example. But you can also have have stress created at any point in the cycle by. Let's say you know not feeling Let's let's pick career or work right so I use. I obviously cycles take absolutely every area of my life which outline in great detail in the book and give you every chart that I created for myself but in work for example because we know the brain changes by twenty five percent over the course of the month there are certain times that you're more naturally inclined to do certain activities. You can do anything you want anytime you want. Of course but you know it's like when you're in the mood to bake cookies right. That's like more fun but then when you have to make cookies for the class you know fundraiser. And it's late at night and you don't feel like doing it. It's stressful right. So it's that's a great example of doing things when you're in the mood to do something they feel effortless and pleasurable durable versus pushing yourself to do it. When you you know? Don't really feel like doing it. Wouldn't it be amazing if you could set up your work like your workflow to just kind of always pick the things that you're naturally in the mood for so everything feels like that joyful like. Oh Yeah I'm so happy to be baking cookies right now. You know. I'm so happy to be working on on this marketing. Copy arm so happy to be doing this.

"And cultivated cortisol levels are also associated with obesity depression excessive food cravings food addiction and we can that's the way it's specifically in the belly because of domino fat is four times more cortisol receptors and other fat cells lounger sting that's amazing so sadly access belly fat might be a company and also with a shrinking rain when you're under chronic stress mmhm so are you having some memory issues are you for getting more now that the memory center of your brain is also has a lot of cortisol receptors so I can get over wound one were over producing cortisol for an extended amount of time you know eventually our bodies can only produce so much quicker sauce so eventually we're actually gonna under produce cortisol and then you really really feel poorly so I think it's it's important that you get. some of these lifestyle things under control before that happens absolutely yeah I think I tire talked to quite a few people that are just tired all the time and can't figure out why in and that's a lot of it is just lots of stress for a long period of time so loosely there's also outside stress. talking about which which is can be kind of an environmental stress maybe you have a child in the hospital or apparent in the hospital or a bad long term relationship or maybe a job that you're struggling with additionally there is stress that we put on ourselves. in fact one of the most stressful things we can do to our body is not eating on schedule that's kind of interesting most people wouldn't think of that a stressful but it can cause you to experience low blood sugar and that's one of the hardest things we can do to our body yep because our busy schedules many people are not eating frequently throughout the day some people go through the day and forget lunch many people have that old belief buried deep in their brains of calories in and calories out so they might be thinking if I skip a meal or snack I am and have less calories and lose weight but the truth is not eating and not having a balance blood sugar you can actually gain weight there is so much more information about the stress hormones but in the interest of time we need to move on to our next category of hormones that affects our weight and that is the sex hormones estrogen progesterone and testosterone. said they were gonna focus mainly on estrogen and progesterone so these two hormones we need them to be and balance and these levels are going to rise and fall as they do in a normal menstrual cycle but then you shouldn't have any symptoms associated with that but one and estrogen progesterone balance is disrupted your inability fifty anxiety weight gain all of that can set an. and usually during perimenopause women. top populating or their ovulation significantly reduce says and eventually that production of progesterone will stop but then the problem is is that over years a drain on glands and fat cells continue to make estrogen mmhm so basically before menopause during these months sometimes years of perimenopause women frequently have to whom much estrogen and very little of that balancing hormone progesterone so you may be thinking what are some of the symptoms of excess estrogen. that's right and the number one symptom of axis estrogen as weight gain so that's why it's so important we're talking about today excess estrogen can cause water retention can cause breast swelling breast tenderness can cause sleep problems mood swings and that dreaded weight gain. so the question that must always be addressed is it too much estrogen or is it a lack of projects to Ron. and very often the answer is usually a little of both yeah. both are in place so some researchers are saying that because of environmental estrogens those Zeno estrogens we're swimming in a sea of toxic estrogens things like you might wonder what that is things like plastic pesticides insecticides even birth control pills even hormone replacement therapy even chemicals in our water our food products are made our beauty products yeah lots and lots of those man made estrogens so in addition to the at that current exposure to those you know estrogens you know many women have been taking birth control for a number of years or been on hormone replacement therapy for a number of years so these women have had years and years of receiving access estrogens and their sex hormones are out of balance. it's so common it really is an in with the birth control pills I'm really glad you brought that up because so many women are on those and that's giving use synthetic excess estrogen exactly but at the same time it's preventing ovulation that means that your production of progesterone goes down ray making that that ratio of the two even more in balance yes. and some of those symptoms of that excess estrogen or what we call estrogen dominance again the weight gain and this is especially around the hips this size after been more in perimenopause arms can cause fatigue fiber cystic brass headaches hormonal migraines foggy thinking low sex drive less kind of goes on and on does so how do you get that estrogen and progesterone levels back in balance. question it is at nutritional weight and wellness we of course always say food for one man's need sufficient good facts and also cluster you're probably surprised to hear that yes also cholesterol there is a surprise so your sex hormones are made from cholesterol..

"Your dreams are could be adapted very adopted. You know, they've been around for thousands of years, actually, but they're sort of a buzzword. Now, what are doctors ends? I need to be on adopting patients come in. And tell me that let me tell you. You. We don't know what they are what you need. Yeah. So adopted Jains are plants mainly that have the ability. They sort of have a natural. I wanna say corticosteroid in them so natural prednisone like affect from. But without all of the harsh side effects. Right. So that's the most important thing. And it's really natural. So our bodies when we recognize it and metabolize it. It's much easier for our bodies to metabolize it then like prednisone, right? So that's that's what an adopted is. Basically what it is. It's an herb used for healing purposes. It's their unique class. There's you have to be there's there's only so many adopted Jin's out there every plant has an adopted in. And really what it does is help balance. Restore and protect the body and mainly it does that the working through the adrenal glands and sometimes Patou itary Glenn too. So it's nontoxic. And then how does it work in your body? They all work slightly differently. And I'm going to talk about some of my favorite, adopt. Regions. But basically, they increase your power of resistance against stress. So it helps to balance or regulate your cortisol levels in your other adrenal hormone level. So it can increase decrease it. They can increase cortisol decrease quarter saw different adopted do different things. So when my patients tell me I want to be on an adopted, and we have to figure out what's the one. You're supposed to be on. Because if you have too much cortisol than we have to give you on that lowers it right and vice versa. So let's figure out let's get really specific with what you need. And again, it all goes back to this. Individualized medicine of what you being on something that's actually going to be effective to you. Because just because it's a buzzword doesn't mean that it's that it's proper for what you should be. Exactly, exactly. So let's give some of these examples of what are the most common adapted Jains, what do people like to be on? And what do they do most of these plants? You will absolutely have heard of the first one. I'll talk about his ginseng. That's a great adopted in that one is designed to decrease cortisol levels. So that's what we find with ginseng. And Jen sing is most common in we see it in Chinese teas because it's been around for sitting for communists, or memory performance. Yeah. So it's a really works to decrease adrenalin. And it also helps to regulate serotonin as well. And anything that regulates serotonin does help with calmness has an antidepressant type fact, but in a good way anti anxiety antidepressant like effect. So that's why the one of the bigger things didn't seem does. But it's also shown to help with weight gain as well. So it helps you lose weight it helps with blood glucose levels of blood sugar levels. It also has effects on creating kindness, which has to do with the muscle function to really interesting.

"And you seem to think their cortisol is very very good for you. And I'm just wondering is there is there a way to increase my cortisol? I think I've heard I've read that drinking a Cup of coffee in the morning elevates cortisol. So that's even measurable in the afternoon. Okay. Anything that I could take that would. Yeah. Increase my cortisol. Well, let's let's rewind the question just a little bit. Okay. You know? So it is cortisol. Good for you or bad for you. And the answer is this. Yes. Okay. Cortisol has to be kept within a certain range for things to work. If you have two little cortisol, you get very very sick. You know, we ended up giving cortisol to people when they have these profound life threatening infections, you go into the emergency room and sepsis one of the first things they do is they give you intravenous cortisol cortisol. Like medications because you need that. Or you're dead on the other hand if you take too much or too much is given to you. Or whatever happens you'll put weight on you can develop diabetes, nasty prosise. So the answer is too much is bad for you. And too bad for you. Now, it's far more common. Probably a hundred times more common to have too little cortisol than too much. Unless you're listening or watching the late night advertisements. You're putting your weight on your you've got too much cortisol. No, you're too much weight on because either eating the wrong thing or too much has nothing to do with cortisol. You have to have cordial. We measure this every time we get a new patient through the front door, we do cortisol determinations. And I may check it three or four times a year why because it's one of those hormones. That's absolutely essential for everything else to work not enough cortisol fire doesn't work none of cortisol you develop arthritis develop all kinds of inflammatory conditions.

"In your self esteem, flourish, and therefore you can be more present for others. So real quick before we move on. I have another question, but you'll have to excuse. My ignorance is is like a is that just a general catchphrase for your like these feelings? I always thought it was like a physical manifestation of your hormones, or is it a combination? It's a combination. The thing is when we're talking about emotions of any kind or, you know, feelings if you will there's going to be a chemical puck tale. Right. So if you are happy person, the chemistry that's in your that's going on inside your body is going to be made of different neurotransmitters and so forth. And if you're feeling angry, you're gonna have other neuro transmitters and and hormones going around. So it's always a chemical component. So in order for you to feel, you know, have a real healthy veto. Yes, you do need to take care of the chemistry. And what that means. Is you need to be able to produce those neuro transmitters and hormones that are necessary for that for that energy to come about. So you have to have it a healthy diet. You have to have a good detox. Vacation systems. So that you can clear out used or excessive old hormones neuro transmitters you have to have the ability to be able to utilize them. So in the case of say cortisol and thyroid they both sit and same cell receptors. And so if you've got a lot of stress going on you're not going to be able to get the thyroid in there because the cortisol is gonna have higher priority. And if your thyroid's not able to get the cells to do it's thing, then your metabolism's gonna slow down. Then you're gonna have less energy than you're going to not feel you not gonna feel like you wanna get intimate your libidos gonna come down. So there's a lot of little pieces to it on the other side, though, you do need a little bit of those stress hormones norepinephrine that Burnett friend because that's the excitement peace that comes in. When you start feeling, you know, really? Attracted to another person and so forth. So you have to have combination of those. But if you've got a lot of long term stress that's going to tear down the systems that you need in order to feel you know, sexually attracted to somebody else is also going to divert resources away from your sex hormones in general, so your estrogen your testosterone, and your and your progesterone 's are not going to have the resources that they need if you're under a lot of chronic stress. And so when we get to having to support those net that natural chemistry one of the things we need to do is for an individual to really focus on themselves. So they have to focus on their body diet movement enjoyment. Those types of things they have to start thinking about their brain. You know, having their brain pilling really healthy there. Being their spiritual aspects their bonds and their relationships need to grow. And and be cultivated all of those things need to come into play. And that's why one of the things I see a lot with individuals at this age. They've so many responsibilities. They have so many things that are pulling them away from themselves saying not valuing and taking care of themselves and their self esteem gets kinda warned down and as that happens, then they're going to be less able to initiate sex. They're going to be less willing to be vulnerable because it's a reflection of what's going on side of themselves. Did that answer questions? Yes. Yes. Everything is much more clear now for me. And and. Is obviously a complex. Topics. I typically in psychology, the psychological aspect of this. But it is such a interesting point that everything you mentioned it's holistic, it's, you know, people as it's not as simple as like my partner's not in the mood for sex or I'm not in the mood to be intimate. But it's like how stressed are you?.

"And it's responsible for a lot of hormone regulation, and it is incredibly important that we're not over stressing ourselves in producing high levels of cortisol and disrupting that hormone balance and imbalance is caused when we're exercising to the max and on top of that we've got the stresses of family and work and career and all these other things, and then you say to yourself and other people are you maybe under a lot of stress, you know, going on. A handle it pretty well. You handle it pretty well. Because you've just been taught like, okay, just keep going, but your body is going to have a different response. Now. Here's a really interesting thing for you to know with all of the time that I've spent interviewing experts integrative medical doctors about adrenal fatigue about regulating, women's hormone health. Do you know what they all say is the number one way to regulate your hormones, reduce stress, which is great. But it's like, okay fine. How do I do that? Should I leave my family and go live in the woods because my family's stressful. Like, what can you do specifically like what action can you take to diminish adrenal fatigue? Well, number one is meditation or some form of meditative activity by some form of meditative activity. I mean, something that allows you to not be present in your problems too. Kind of escape to relax to free your mind for some of you. That's art. Yes. Art is meditation prayer is meditation maybe going on a power walk without looking at your phone and enjoy nature that can be meditative any type of activity where it's like a hobby, and you're just not thinking about your. That's meditative. You don't literally have to be sitting on a rock with your palms up and going, my quieting, my mind is my mind. I'm like, you don't have to do that. Now is that idea? Sure. Some people are really good at meditating. But for some people that's going to make them more stressed out. So do something meditative. And you know, you know, what I'm talking about. 'cause everybody has it. So now, let's talk about women's body fat. So here's the deal, especially for young girls. So much of this hormone disruption starts at an early age, especially for young women who are in any type of competitive, activity gymnastics dance..

"cortisol" Discussed on The Healthy Moms Podcast

"He's out of Washington state university in he's a professor out there, and he showed that you put people on voltage gated calcium or calcium channel blockers, and you black you can actually block the negative effects of this of these different electromagnetic frequencies and their impact on the body. And he had one group that was exposed and had the channel blockers and one group that was exposed to the same and didn't have them and the group that didn't have the channel block. Cours showed that they had much more oxidative stress in damage from this. And you can look it up. You can look up the study. It's published peer reviewed study, and it's called voltage gated calcium channels up Dr Martin Paul P A L L, and you can find that study, and you can see all the different effects that they have. But that's one way. But the way I like to explain it to people is that if you just think about the way that even electrically impacts the body. You know, how do we restart a heart? We use voltage to do that in that contracts the muscle. And then if you think about any time that you have electrodes on the body you can stimulate involuntary muscle contraction with voltage. So in today's world, we basically surround our bedroom with this with voltage on all the walls with the wires going through the walls up through the ceiling and through the floor. Many times we have upstairs room in your house, and you have this constant body voltage at you can measure on the body, and that's stimulating muscle contracts and causing this cortisol response in when your cortisol goes up, your melatonin goes down. And when your melatonin goes down, you don't sleep as deeply or get as restful sleep and your body doesn't detox at night. And so there's all kinds of studies also show you get low melatonin from high M F exposure from electric fields and magnetic field. And then all the wireless radiation, which we can talk about a little more in depth for sure I definitely go deep on that. I loved to get super practical too because you actually do assessments and people's houses you've been to my house actually done any method segment to new walk us through starting at the beginning. What you're looking for when you walk into someone's house, and you start assessing what are the things that? You're measuring. What are you looking for? Sure. Yeah. Basically, I walk up to someone's house. I'm looking at what their houses made of if it's made of know, what kind of siding kinda roofing. And then also, you know, just because the materials we make our homes out of can actually be beneficial or not beneficial to blocking frequencies that are coming from outside. From the wireless transmissions from the radio television in cellphone towers, and that sort of thing. And so I kind of make a note of that. When I I look at a house, and then I'm also looking to see if there's a big transformer anywhere near house, whether the lions outside are buried or above ground, and how big they are in also taking measurements going into the house, and the probably the number one thing for like when someone's buying a house, or where the house is located where you know, you might wanna think about moving is if there's a field coming from outside the house to the inside of the house that you can't control. So that would be something like a transformer or huge power lines. That are outside that are near the house that are penetrating the home because that's impractical to shield against you with magnetic fields. You can't really shield practically against those..
