Class is in session with this foundational episode that will help you understand the importance of every topic and interview ahead. We always hear that “stress” and “inflammation” are at the root of every illness, and that’s why we believe there’s power in learning the actual mechanisms by which they affect us. When we know what “stress” is and how to recognize it in the body, only then can we understand the steps needed to flip the script (and why genuine lifestyle changes are more valuable than any pill). Wellness doesn’t need to be expensive, and more than anything we need to change the way we treat ourselves. In this episode, Olivia unpacks the FOUR TRIGGERS that impact your body’s built-in stress response system, the “HPA axis.” This system includes your adrenals, and helps us explain why chronic fatigue is exploding. Expect to hear advice on sleep hygiene, optimizing melatonin production, brain detoxification, strengthening herbs for empathic people who are drained by their environment, as well as some eclectic takes on blue light, sunglasses, and your chakras.  Links: The Brain That Changes Itself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Brain_that_Changes_Itself My Flow Balance formula: https://www.organicolivia.com/product/flow-balance/ My teacher, the incredible Claudia Keel: http://www.earthflower.org/ My articles about the brain’s growth hormone and how to support brain health: 9 Ways To Naturally Increase Your Brain’s Growth Hormone How Leg Muscle Protects Your Brain via BDNF My Brain Juice formula for brain health and BDNF support: Brain Juice Brain detox & jaw clenching connection: DR.
