One of the tools I’ve found most helpful for people during the holiday season is intermittent fasting (IF). IF is a powerful practice that requires you eat during certain windows of time and fast the rest of the time. 

In other words, you don’t have to change what you eat - just when. And its benefits include…

  • Fat burning
  • Reduced heart disease risk 
  • Improved memory 
  • Reduced caloric intake 

The best part? It’s free, flexible and simple and you can still reap the benefits even if you don’t eat perfectly. 

(which is why it’s one of my favorite holiday tools!)

To learn all about IF and its beautiful benefits check out this week’s podcast with nurse practitioner and international speaker, Cynthia Thurlow. Here are some of the fascinating takeaways…

  • The benefits of intermittent fasting
  • Cynthia’s morning routine
  • How intermittent fasting affects hormones
  • How to reduce your risk of reproductive cancers
  • The morning drink that improves IF’s benefits
  • The supplements you can take while fasting
  • Fasting benefits for mental health
  • How to reduce cravings during fasting
  • Why fasting might be hard for you (and how to make it easier!)
  • How to fast with your cycle
  • When you should not fast
  • How much protein, fat and carbohydrates we should have each day
  • The trigger foods you may want to monitor
  • The hormone that makes you more insulin sensitive
  • Why alcohol can lead to weight gain
  • And much more!

Please share this podcast with anyone you think it might help and have a wonderful, healthy, happy holiday, friends!

The incidence of food reactions (allergies, intolerances, sensitivities) is on the rise. 

 

But what many people don't know is that it is possible to heal certain types of food reactions. 

 

(Celiac Disease and food allergies, being a notable exception:)

 

When my son was younger he reacted to several foods like wheat, corn, dairy and sometimes even chocolate. 

 

And while the elimination diet did help us manage his symptoms - avoiding so many foods was stressful, especially as he started going to school.

 

Thankfully, my dear friend Steven Wright (engineer, gut expert and founder of Healthy Gut) helped me heal my son’s food sensitivities from the root. 

 

Today, my son can essentially eat all foods except for those that contain gluten. 

 

This change was so miraculous for our family, that I invited Steven on to the podcast this week so that he can teach you all how to heal food sensitivities from the root. Here are some of the fascinating tidbits we cover: 

 

  • What causes food sensitivities? 
  • The difference between food sensitivities and food allergies
  • 3 little known reasons the incidence of food reaction is rising
  • Why PPIs can be dangerous
  • Why stomach acid is not the enemy
  • The most common food reactions
  • 3 issues that underlie food sensitivities
  • The incredible importance of short chain fatty acid (and how to find them)
  • Why food elimination diets are not enough
  • The 4 steps for healing food reactions
  • The best supplements for healing food sensitivities
  • How to prevent food allergies and sensitivities in kids
  • And so much more!

I hope you love this podcast as much as I did! Please tag someone in the comments who you think will benefit from this information and use these principles as you head into the holiday season.
