What does it truly mean to "be your own best health advocate"? I thought I knew, but it wasn't until my health was at rock bottom that I was forced to realize what it really meant. If you're thinking to yourself that it seems pretty obvious how you should be your own best health advocate, I hope you'll listen with an open mind because it goes deeper than you might initially think.

Today's topic is carrageenan. It's a plant-based ingredient that's in many foods and a lot of people can also have a sensitivity to it. For those who are affected, they're often in the dark as to what the culprit of their discomfort is. That's why I'm bringing this to your attention today.

 

  Carrageenan is something that's added to foods and pharmaceuticals to emulsify them, to thicken liquids, or t...

Have you ever heard of the hope molecule? It's pretty cool.

 

You already know that when it comes to movement, something is better than nothing. You've also probably heard of endorphins, and we know that serotonin is our happiness hormone, so it's good to do things that give you an extra hit of serotonin such as getting exercise, meditating, or spending time in nature. But there's more to it.

 

Why does it feel...

In episode 9 I talked about adrenal fatigue and I'm long overdue for a continuation of that. Today I'm explaining why many doctors say that adrenal fatigue simply doesn't exist.

 

If you don't have adrenal fatigue or don't think it applies to you, here's why I want you to keep listening: many topics that I cover are precursors to autoimmune conditions that can be avoided or reversed without medical inter...

Stress. Never heard of it?

 

I'm totally joking because we all know about regular-schmegular stress, but what about Eustress? Or pre-traumatic stress? I used to be THE worst person I knew when it came to dealing with stress, but I have changed that quite a lot. Having an autoimmune disease forced me to wake up and see how truly destructive stress was for my health.

 

I'm sharing the story of my personal rock bottom with str...

Do you struggle with staying committed to a training program or meal plan?

 

 

 

I'm going talk about different personality types and how sometimes if you're hating the type of training or dieting you're doing it might be a good sign that it's time to take a step back and re-evaluate. There's probably something about the format that simply isn't a match for your personality type to stay interested and commit...

Trauma responses and trauma bonds are two things that tend to become addictive to someone who's experienced trauma for two big reasons. First, it's familiar. Remember, safety is not familiar to a traumatized person. Pain is. Second, the body keeps re-attempting to finally find safety. Learn about all of this and much more in today's episode.

Also in this episode:

Today is the beginning of a short series on trauma. Before you click away or skip ahead, please, please hear me out on why this applies to every single one of you and why awareness of trauma is so important. If trauma doesn't affect you directly — if you somehow managed to have such a mega-privileged life that trauma hasn't affected you — then you need to keep listening so that you can grow your awareness for the sake of yo...

Emotional eating. Stress eating. It affects everyone at some point in life. Some more than others. I'm here to tell you it's also natural. Today we're talking about when how emotional eating can become a concern and that is when the mental aspect is an issue. Emotional eating on its own is not "bad", but what can be not-so-healthy is the mindset. I'll explain all that and more in this episode.

Are you one of those people on lockdown and worrying about "losing your gains"? A lot of people are concerned about this, but in case you don't even know what I mean by that, it basically just means losing muscle mass or strength, that you probably worked really hard for. You might be struggling to feel like you can do adequate resistance training or strength training at home in order to prevent that from happening. I&#...

Hello, my FitFizz friends! How are you doing lately considering the drastic shift in the state of the world? It feels pretty surreal, huh?

Today I'm not directly talking about COVID-19 but I'm talking about the impact that I've seen it have on regular lives and hopefully a bit of a new perspective if you've found yourself frustrated in any way with this shift. I see a lot of pointless judgments going on in regards t...

Are you an extrovert or an introvert? Do you feel more energized or more depleted after being around other people? There are a lot of common misconceptions about introverts that extroverts REALLY need to hear. Being an introvert has nothing to do with being "quiet" or "shy" although many people often think that's what it means.

The more I've thought about it, the more it astonishes me that this kind of thing...
