Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted from cell phones, computers, wifi routers and other gadgets that surround us are everywhere in this day and age, which leads many people to believe they’re safe.
Sadly, there is excellent evidence suggesting EMFs are not as safe as we’d like to think they are. In fact, EMFs are empirically linked to conditions like:
And our children are the most vulnerable population.

And, frankly, the topic isn't addressed nearly enough.
Nor is the simple fact that there's a lot we can do to calm anxiety NATURALLY.
Due to my personal history with anxiety, I have spent countless hours researching the topic . And in my work with clients, I’ve noticed that almost all of them express feeling anxious from time to time.

The incidence of anxiety, Alzheimer’s, depression and other brain-based issues are rising at alarming rates.
And for some people, conventional treatments either don’t work - or come with side effects.
Which is why this week’s Weekend Wellness is devoted to the 8 best natural brain hacks I’ve discovered in 2019.
As someone with a history of mood issues and both genes for Alzheimer’s, I spend a LOT to time researching novel ways to keep my brain healthy.
So, if you feel anxious...depressed....unmotivated...can’t remember where you put your keys...or just want to feel happier, please take a few minutes to benefit from the tips and tricks I’ve been using with awesome results.
Most people understand that hormonal birth control can increase the risk of blood clots and breast cancer, but what most people aren’t told is that its use has also been linked to…
An increased risk of suicide...
A 330% increased risk of Crohn's Disease…
And maybe even an increased risk of Alzheimer’s.
Scary, right? The last time I took it, I felt SO anxious, I had to stop after only a few days. When I called my doctor to tell her what happened she said...
“That would definitely NOT have anything to do with birth control - call a psychiatrist and get some help.”
Turns out - she was wrong. Birth control DOES cause unwanted side effects for many women.
In fact, recent research and the clinical experience of this week’s BRILLIANT podcast guest, Dr. Jolene Brighten (author of the best-selling book, Beyond the Pill), has shown that birth control comes with a litany of side effects we’re just beginning to understand.
So if you’re taking birth control, if you’re thinking of taking it, or if you’re wondering what you can do instead to support healthy hormonal balance, do yourself a favor and tune into this week’s awesome podcast. Here’s what we cover...

Many Americans have been told to avoid dietary cholesterol at one time or another.
One of the unfortunate consequences of following this advice, is that many Americans also unintentionally eliminated the richest dietary sources of vitamin A - liver, eggs and cream. Given that we REQUIRE vitamin A (especially the retinol form found in animal products) for things like
According to this week’s podcast guest, creator of the Root Cause Protocol, Morely Robbins, this avoidance of vitamin A rich foods,

To celebrate the first Weekend Wellness Episode of the year today’s podcast is going to be a little different - at the end of every podcast I’ve been asking the same “famous last question” that has resulted in SO many wonderful, impactful pieces of advice from hundreds of doctors, functional medicine practitioners and other health and wellness experts, that I wanted to bring them all together and share some of my favorite answers in one awesome episode to serve as inspiration for you in the new year…SO I chose my 10 favorite answers for the first round that I thought you’d benefit from most!
Many of the personal care products on the market today are FILLED with toxic chemicals linked to detrimental health outcomes.
And while we’d like to believe the FDA will protect us from these dangerous ingredients, it actually has FAR less oversight and power than we’d like to believe.
Which is why it's absolutely vital we educate ourselves and support companies making truly non-toxic products.
The only problem?
Many of the “clean” products on the market simply don’t work.
Most of the hair care products I’ve used, for example, leave my hair dry and dull.
Fortunately, that’s all about to change because one of the most influential people in health and wellness, The Wellness Mama, joins us today to talk all things fasting, toxins, non-toxic personal care products.
She’s spent the last decade researching and perfecting products that not only eliminate toxic chemicals, but that also add nourishing ingredients.
So if you’re ready to ditch the toxins (and dull, dry hair) and upgrade your personal care routine, tune in NOW!
We cover these fascinating topics:
This was one of the most inspiring podcasts I’ve recorded to date, which is why I couldn’t wait to share it as we start the new year.
I hope you love it as much as I did.
Happy New Year, Wellness Warriors!

According to the USDA, 95% of Americans are deficient in at least one nutrient.
Even more shocking is that In order to get the vitamin A content from one orange our grandparents ate, we’d need to consume 8 today.
Why is this happening?
One of the major reasons is our soil (and therefore the food we grow in our soil) is nutrient DEPLETED. The situation is so dire, in fact, that according to the FAO we only have 60 years of topsoil left.
This is a BIG problem with many devastating consequences.
Sadly, most people don’t fully understand why healthy soil is important or how to support food producers that regenerate our soil and planet.
(No judgies - I used to be one of them!)
Which is why this week’s podcast with Finian Makepeace, soil specialist and co-founder of Kiss the Ground, is devoted to breaking down the many detrimental outcomes of degraded soils AND the simple dietary steps we can take to restore nutrient density and environmental health.
Because every time we eat - we vote for SOMETHING.
Each of our choices has an impact.

Today, 40 million people suffer from anxiety in America. Alzheimer’s affects over 5 million and depression is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide.
Even more disheartening, is the fact that many people suffering from these brain-based conditions don’t have treatment options that work for them.
Because I have both genes for Alzheimer’s and a history of anxiety, I’m obsessed with finding new research-based strategies to keep my brain sharp, calm, and focused.
Which is why I was thrilled to interview Steve Wright (author of Maverick Healing and founder of HealthyGut.com) and learn about his favorite (and little known) brain and gut hacks of 2019!

Since I was a teen, I’ve struggled with mental health issues that no doctor (or psychiatrist) knew how to treat.
It wasn’t until I adopted the paleo diet and suddenly felt calmer, clearer and happier than I had in YEARS, that I understood the food I was eating was affecting my emotions.
Today, the link between food and mood is a burgeoning area of research and something I’ve spend hundreds of hours studying, which is why this week’s podcast is devoted to the 3 steps I’ve taken to keep my mood more stable than it’s been in all my life AND some of the awesome new research I think you’ll benefit from knowing about.

A few weeks ago as a new pet owner, I took my new puppy Charlie to the vet and inquired about the perfect diet for my new puppy.
“Almost all vets feed their pups Purina and other kibble,” my vet said.
“What about raw dog food? That’s what we’ve been giving her?” I replied.
Well, raw dog food can contain bacteria that can be an issue.” said the vet.
And so we switched to a high quality kibble.
Within just a few days we noticed a profound difference in our Charlie girl.
She just wasn’t herself.
So to get to the bottom of whether or not raw dog food really was dangerous or beneficial, asked the founder of Raw Dog Food, DeDe Murcer Moffett, to break it down for us.
Turns out, there is TONS of controversy when it comes to how to nourish our puppies and I think you’ll be surprised (and definitely entertained) by what she has to say.

The ketogenic diet can be a powerful tool for weight loss, craving reduction, brain health and perhaps even longevity.
BUT (and that’s a big but) there are many simple mistakes that can negate all of these benefits and leave you feeling frustrated and burned out.
For example - did you know that consuming the wrong type of oils has been shown to cause inflammation in your body for over 100 days after!?
It sounds crazy but it’s true, so if you want all the juicy details on how to reduce inflammation, optimize hormone levels (listen up, keto ladies!), detox and how to avoid the #1 reason people fail on the keto diet, tune in to this week’s incredible podcast with the founder of Keto Kamp, Ben Azadi!

Fasting is easily one of the most powerful dietary strategies we have today.
Research has shown it can improve weight loss, detoxification, brain function, and promote longevity. It’s also been shown to decrease side effects of chemotherapy, reduce the risk of cancer in animal models, and I’ve even noticed it improves my mood dramatically.
BUT, there are many things you need to know before you jump in if you want to succeed.
The longest fast on record, for example, was 382 days completed by a Scottich man named Angus Barbieri. He lived on soda, vitamins, water, and coffee and lost 276 pounds.
Obviously, that is not where you begin.
(He was monitored by his doctors the whole time - do NOT try this at home!)
