Don't Wait For Your Wake Up Call!

Melissa Deally

As an Integrative Health Practitioner I have come to realize that we simply haven't been taught how to optimize our health, and that the average person has habits that are negatively impacting their health, due to this lack of knowledge, through no fault of their own.

Public health and our school system simply don't teach us enough about nutrition, sleep, stress, gut health or how interconnected our bodies are!

All Episodes

Dr. Tom and I discuss how the way he practices medicine has changed since his med school days, it’s no longer about giving someone a diagnosis with doomsday messaging or relying just on a pill, it is more than that and revolves around the idea of metabolic flexibility.  The ability for the body to cope with stresses and recover, to enjoy relaxation, and then be able to move back into a stress state, it all about a body in balance, a body that has flexibility, rather than being stuck in one state of high stress or low metabolic rate.  We are now realizing that the body is amazing at healing itself, given the right environment and people can heal from chronic illness and auto-immune diseases even if you’ve been told otherwise! Looking at the whole body, using food as medicine, practicing self-care, and addressing other lifestyle factors such as sleep and stress, the body truly heals and there is always hope.  Dr. Tom loves to say “let the body finish the job”.  Boost Your Immune System Workshop https://yourguidedhealthjourney.com/workshops/ (https://yourguidedhealthjourney.com/workshops/) Complimentary 30-minute consult:  https://YGHJappointments.as.me/30-minute-consult (https://YGHJappointments.as.me/30-minute-consult) Discover Your Toxic Load Quiz:  https://welcome.yourguidedhealthjourney.com/yourtoxicload (https://welcome.yourguidedhealthjourney.com/yourtoxicload) About the Guest: J.

In this episode I dive into the problem with our sick care medical system today –appointment times that are too short for a doctor to truly diagnose you fully and a pharmaceutical industry hungry for profits, pushing drugs as the only option for healing –and yet they don’t heal in many cases, they simply mask one symptom, which drives another symptom, and they encourage another drug. I dive into the history as it wasn’t always this way, and when we started to this drive for billion-dollar sales and how this all came to be. If you are starting to question our current sick care system or have been questioning it for some time, you’ll want to listen to this episode to learn more about the issues and some book recommendations to continue your learning. I also round out the episode with suggestions as to changes that need to be made, as well as things you can do starting today to take responsibility for your health and invest in it as you would any other asset.

We also discuss portion distortion, particularly in relation to sugar, as it’s in everything and it’s so easy for us to get too much sugar in our diet. Again, sugar is not bad, our body needs it, but it’s all about getting the right amount and not too much. We also dive into some tips for surviving trick or treating and all the sugar that goes with that! Karie also digs into types of sugars and sugar alcohols. So much helpful information is packed into this one session as well as the fact Karie has a brand-new book out, called “the Domino Diet”. You can click below to buy it on Amazon.

This is a continuation of episode #34. In that episode, I discussed the first 2 reasons why it can be so hard to kick the sugar habit and in this episode, I discuss the 3rd reason, as well as what happens when insulin is being produced to balance blood sugar and how when we have too much sugar in our blood for the insulin to store properly, it just stores it as fat, and at the same time, our fat-burning hormone is turned off when insulin is being produced. Is it any wonder our levels of obesity have been on the rise since the late 1980s when the food industry started putting sugar into everything? I finish up the episode with 7 simple steps you can take to help you kick the sugar habit. If you need more help kicking the sugar habit, I have this online 28 Day Kick the Sugar Habit program you can take, which guides you through slowly lowering your sugar intake as you re-set your taste buds, so it doesn’t trigger cravings. Lots of great learning for you and all recipes are included, and they are delicious!  https://welcome.yourguidedhealthjourney.com/Kick-sugar (https://welcome.yourguidedhealthjourney.com/Kick-sugar) Subscribe to Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTYG85CdWUA5MZ0NDCs-Z3Q/videos (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTYG85CdWUA5MZ0NDCs-Z3Q/videos) Complimentary 30-minute consult: https://YGHJappointments.as.me/30-minute-consult (https://YGHJappointments.as.me/30-minute-consult) Discover Your Toxic Load Quiz: https://welcome.yourguidedhealthjourney.com/yourtoxicload (https://welcome.yourguidedhealthjourney.com/yourtoxicload) About the Host: Melissa is an Integrative Health Practitioner helping people get to the root cause of their health issues.

Jenni Currier has had a lifelong struggle with sugar, calling it her “cocaine” as it is very addictive to her, but in recent years she has learned how to Kick Sugar out of her life, and tools to help her do this. She’s also learned it’s a journey, and sometimes she falls off, but she catches herself much more quickly now and gets back on track. She is sharing this knowledge with others, because she knows how sugar drains her energy, causes brain fog, weight gain, and inflammation and she has a desire to educate on the “evils” of this product that is in almost everything, so they too can get control of their sugar habit.

In today’s stressed-out world, millions of people are struggling with digestive issues –which sucks as we have to eat, and yet having pain and discomfort, as a result, isn’t any fun. In this episode, I dive into how our digestive system is supposed to work, and what happens when things go wrong, and what you can do about it.

We eat food for energy, but what happens if we aren’t absorbing what we eat? Then we don’t have the energy levels we want, and even in first-world countries, we can suffer from malnutrition.

In this episode, I teach you how to optimize your digestive system, as well as an at-home test to determine if you have good levels of stomach acid, which we need in order to break down our food.

In this episode, Kathy Ashton shares her story about discovering how the food she was eating was exacerbating her fibromyalgia. Then her husband was diagnosed with MS, and the drugs caused depression and made him feel like crap so he stopped taking them. He’d remembered Kathy’s success in healing herself by changing her diet, and he asked her to go back to school to learn about this, to help him heal! And she did, and now they have a family business creating supplements from whole foods at therapeutic doses to help the body heal. Her husband has since gone and done the same degree, and their son works the business with them, as it was his idea as a child to stop using supplements full of fillers, but make their own from food to help his Dad heal! So they did and now they sell these supplements to help others.  Kathy has very generously offered a discount code to my listeners of MDPODCAST10 if you’d like to buy her products. https://flourishln.com.au Website:https://flourishln.com.au/ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/FlourishLiveNaturally Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/flourish_live_naturally LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/thryoid-autoimmune-specialist/ Discover Your Toxic Load Quiz: https://welcome.yourguidedhealthjourney.com/yourtoxicload About the Guest: Flourish founder Kathy Ashton is a degree-qualified medicinal nutritionist.

Today I discuss why eating in a stressed state causes weight gain, and provide a simple trick to turn on your digestive system, even when you are feeling stressed out. I also explain how high cortisol levels are negatively impacting our sleep and then when we don’t sleep well, we are less stress-resilient and again have high cortisol levels, as well as when we don’t sleep well, our brain looks for energy and so we reach for food, which further adds to the weight gain. This is a very common scenario that I see in my clients all the time and it shows up on their lab tests, even if they don’t feel stressed, BUT they don’t know why they have gained weight. So tune in to learn more about the relationship between stress and weight gain and what you can do about it.

In this episode, I invite Mandy Gefle to tell her story, as she moved from being a nurse in a rural setting under high stress, into a state of burnout and then gave birth to her first son and suffered “postpartum depletion” as she calls it.  A tough decision on her healing journey led her away from mainstream medicine, which was all that she knew, and into the world of holistic health, and using food to help her body heal and that of her son as well.  Ultimately she left her job in mainstream medicine as it no longer aligned with her values to mask symptoms rather than teach people how to truly heal.   Mandy shares her road to recovery and how she now helps others get healthy meals on the table without spending all day in the kitchen because food truly is the best form of medicine!  Mandy has also offered listeners the opportunity to connect with her to discover the best way she can guide them to providing nutritious meals to your family. About the Guest: Mandy Gefle, BScN, RN, Licensed Holistic Nutrition Practitioner Mandy Gefle, owner of Pura Vida Nutrition, specializes in helping clients who struggle with low energy, and exhaustion related to chronic stress. Associated symptoms have a major impact on individuals; both personally, and professionally.  Mandy realized her passion for prevention after recovering naturally from postpartum depression, without the use of pharmaceutical intervention. Drawing from her experience as a registered nurse in acute care, and her subsequent education as a holistic nutrition practitioner, she has found success in her business by focusing on the benefits of high-quality whole food, appropriate sleep, and effective stress management. She takes a holistic approach and integrates easy-to-follow strategies to promote a balanced lifestyle for individuals who feel they have nowhere else to turn. In addition to working as a registered nurse and entrepreneur; Mandy is a mom of two boys, the best-selling co-author of Heal, and an educator through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Edmonton.

You might wonder how a typo can lead to having half your thyroid removed unnecessarily….you’ll have to tune in to hear Lisa Wilson’s story, which is almost unbelievable except that it really happened to her. Then we discuss her long recovery, navigating mainstream medicine, and finding her way to Naturopathy and intuitive healing resources in order to really advance her healing. It’s been 7 years, and Lisa is still healing, but has come so far, and is doing much better thankfully.  When our body is out of balance it sends us messages to get us to change something, so we can come back into balance, but that is so much harder to do when you’ve had ½ your thyroid surgically removed, and yet, it can still be done with the support of holistic health practitioners.  About the Guest: In 2014 after the blessing of a layoff allowed her to start her own business she had a surgery (by mistake) that left her feeling an exhaustion best explained by calling it "Cellular tired". It's a tired feeling that is right in your core, your body won't move, and your brain can't focus. Making it very difficult to stay in a good mental state. Lisa has shared her story in several books, and while it's not the focus of her business it does inform everything she does. Still not fully back to her "old" self Lisa has made many improvements in her health by seeking alternative health solutions.  Lisa Wilson has taken her success as a Human Resources leader in large corporations and is bringing this same opportunity to small to medium-sized companies. Offering training and coaching before and during those particularly sticky situations. Lisa is a Leadership/Corporate Coach, Certified Human Resources Leader, and a trained Mediator. With an HR career spanning 15 years, her drive had her in a manager’s role 5 years into her career. She is an active volunteer with Toastmasters and the Human Resources professionals Association. She is no stranger to leading and loves sharing her knowledge and experience with her clients.    People can reach me through my website. http://www.lmwconsultation.ca/ (www.lmwconsultation.ca) or social media @lmwconsultation.    About the Host: Melissa is an Integrative Health Practitioner helping people get to the root cause of their health issues. Melissa neither diagnoses nor cures but helps bring your body back into balance by helping discover your “toxic load” and then removing the toxins.
