A 2019 study revealed many pregnant women today do not meet the recommended intakes for nutrients like: 

  • Magnesium 
  • Vitamin D 
  • Vitamin E 
  • Iron
  • Vitamin A

Which is scary given that inadequate nutrition can negatively impact baby’s development, mom’s health AND how mom feels (physically & emotionally) in her postpartum period. 

This is exactly why I invited one of my favorite experts in the wellness world, the Whole30’s dietician, Stephanie Greunke, on the show to teach us all how to not only survive pregnancy and the postpartum period - but to THRIVE through it. 

Here are some of the topics we dive into...

  • The most important nutrients for pregnancy
  • Medications that can deplete moms
  • How to prevent morning sickness (and why it happens!)
  • The link between nutrient deficiency, pregnancy, and mental health issues
  • Common nutrient deficiencies in paleo dieters
  • Her 3 favorite nutrient tests 
  • Important foods for the first trimester
  • Foods to focus on for the second trimester
  • How many carbs do you really need for a healthy pregnancy? 
  • The most important food for the third trimester
  • 2 strategies for a healthy, happy postpartum period
  • The 3 key ingredients for a simple, healthy meal
  • How to lose the baby weight gracefully 
  • How much weight to lose per week for sustainable weight loss
  • Her 6 favorite supplements to replete nutrient stores
  • The best forms of magnesium for digestion, brain health, and relaxation
  • The one food you’ll want to focus on before pregnancy
  • My favorite new-momma beauty product
  • And so much more!

If you are a momma, momma-to-be, or know someone who is - please share this podcast so we can all experience healthy, happy pregnancies and nourished babies!

It’s not talked about nearly enough, but chronic symptoms such as nasal congestion, postnasal drip, eye swelling, runny nose, headache, and facial pain can be indicators of mold illness.

In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic, 96% of sinusitis is due to mold and fungal overgrowth. 

Which is why in this week’s podcast with my friend, mold expert (and fellow FDN practitioner), Ryan Monahan, we talk all about the many, underappreciated ways mold can negatively impact your health. 

Most importantly, we talk about how to identify, diagnose and treat mold illness. Here are some of the other fascinating topics we cover….

  • The #1 food contaminated with mold
  • Common symptoms that may indicate you are suffering from mold illness
  • The real reason you get coffee jitters
  • The healthy foods that can make mold issues worse
  • Why and how mold is so damaging
  • The common conditions linked to mold issues 
  • What mycotoxins are - and why they matter
  • The best test for determining if there is mold in your home.
  • The biomarkers that clue you in to the fact that you may have mold issues 
  • The best supplements for mold detoxification
  • The MOST important thing to do if you have mold issues
  • The $15 at-home online test you can take to identify a potential mold issue
  • And so much more!

According to Ryan, 24% of the population has a genetic predisposition that makes them more susceptible to mold illness. 

So tune in now and don’t forget to share this with anyone you think it might help.
