January 19, 2017

Have you ever been too embarrassed to go to the gym because you’re afraid everyone is judging how out of shape you are? Have you seen a fitness instructor or personal trainer and thought to yourself he or she had NO idea what you were going through? They’re already so fit, so how could they possibly know what you’re going through?

It’s not always easy to get in shape. There are definitely some hurtles to overcome. So I asked my friend to come on as a guest today because he knows exactly how it is to go through all the obstacles from being completely out of shape to being fit.

(Because just like skin is not just about appearance, neither is being fit, right?!). And, Drew shares some very practical tips to overcoming the big challenges to getting in shape and healthy.

The Meaning of Your Life with Elaine Glass

November 17, 2016

Have you ever met someone who constantly has to be occupied? Who always has to be doing something else, meeting up with someone, on their phone texting, or watching a video on Facebook or YouTube? These people are so busy “doing” that they can’t seem to make time to just “be.” Maybe this is someone close to you or maybe you realize it’s YOU!

Our life is fast paced. You probably feel the constant pressure - to be there for others, to get things done, to take care of your children, to workout more, to move faster, to do more. This can leave us feeling anxious, confused, and angry. This can also impact our health and show up on our skin. After a while you may begin to forget who you are or why your life turned out exactly as it has. It’s time to come back to yourself and discover what you really need.

And this is exactly what my guest Elaine Glass is talking about today. Elaine graduated from Northwestern University and chose a profession in dental hygiene. After 30 years, listening to challenging stories from thousands of clients and giving to others and neglecting her needs, she lost sight of her own purpose. Elaine knew something had to change in order to reclaim her worth and honor her truest self. She was on a search for the answer outside herself and expected to find it there. But where she found true peace, solitude, calm, good health and ultimately her purpose was when she chose to listen to and trust her own voice. Elaine has switched gears and now runs a successful coaching practice where she focuses on showing people how to get quiet and listen to identify their truth. She has witnessed hundreds of people within professional and personal relationships thrive because of her methods.

So, for this interview, prepare to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Be ready to embrace your fear. You’re going to learn how to open up to inner wisdom you need to hear.

Impact of Mold Exposure on Your Skin and Health with Dr. Jill Carnahan

November 10, 2016

Today we’re talking about something we haven’t covered before and that’s health and skin problems associated with mold exposure.

Mold exposure can lead to a number of symptoms. Some of the early warning signs show up on the skin and include acne, hives, dermatitis, other rashes. And there can be other symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory loss, unexplained pain and a number of other symptoms. If you have these or other symptoms and you haven’t been able to get to the root cause, your answer may be in this podcast.

My guest today is Dr. Jill Carnahan. Dr. Jill received her medical degree from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine. She is double board-certified in Family Medicine (ABFM) and Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABIHM). Dr. Jill was part of the first 100+ health-care practitioners to be certified in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFMCP). She founded Flatiron Functional Medicine in Boulder, Colorado where she partnered in functional medicine with Dr. Robert Rountree. She recently opened a new medical clinic in Louisville, Colorado. Dr. Jill is a 15-year survivor of breast cancer and Crohn’s disease and is passionate about teaching patients how to “live well” and thrive in the midst of complex and chronic illness. She is also committed to teaching other physicians how to address underlying causes of illness rather than just treating symptoms.

On today’s podcast, we cover how to know if mold exposure may be an issue for you and what to do about it. Dr. Jill covers testing and valuable resources that I think you’ll be interested to hear about. Many of the symptoms of mold exposure can be misdiagnosed with other health conditions, so it’s important to know what to look for because it may be the missing piece for your health.
