Simplified living is something that I have never really understood. I have always felt that it meant you couldn't have anything, and that just wouldn't work for me because I love things!

 

This week I interviewed Kelsey Van Kirk of Simply Life on Purpose and she has SO many amazing and wonderful nuggets of information for you.

We all know we need sleep, probably more than we are getting. But guess what? We often don't spend enough time prioritizing it or let sleep haphazardly happen (or not happen).

 

I've been there for sure! But guess what? On average we need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. And if we get that amount of sleep we are more productive. Burning the candle at both ends doesn't actually work. You can be more productive when you sleep more, pretty awesome, right?

 

In this episode you'll learn my three tips for getting better sleep and how to take action on them today!

Sep 12, 2017

In this week's episode, I talk with Robin Long of The Balanced Life. Robin is an amazing mentor and teacher of exercise and showing mamas like you how to live with grace over guilt.

Welcome to Season 3 of the Just Enjoy Health podcast!

 

I am so excited to be back with you this week, especially because today starts the Simplify Your Health Challenge!

 

In this episode, I am dishing out all the details on the upcoming Simplify Your Health Challenge. A 30 day challenge specifically created to help busy, overwhelmed women like you take baby steps each day to take better care of yourselves.

 

Wherever you are on your journey to health, consistent, small changes will turn this short term challenge into a long term lifestyle.

 

It is my hope that this challenge encourages you and helps you prioritize your health. You DO have the ability to make healthy living happen!

Welcome to the final episode in Season 2! I'm closing out the season with a fun returning guest...my hubby, Phil! In this episode we will be discussing backup meals, date night activities, how to get a husband on board with healthy living, how wives can encourage their husbands, and budgeting. I hope you enjoy and we will see you back in September for the start of Season 3!

Exercise intensity and frequency is something that can be debated.  How much exercise is too much? How intense should your workout be? My answer is something that might make some of you really happy (or maybe not so happy!)

 

I think exercise and moving your body is very important, but there is such thing as too much exercise.  I believe the majority of the fitness industry is making us think we should be working out a lot more than we actually should.

 

In this episode I am dishing out 10 tips to help you figure out an exercise regimen that works best for your body, and how to know if you are OVER training and what to do about it.

 

When you are exercising, it's not just about the moves or the reps that you are doing DURING the workout. It is also about the recovery AFTERWARD. When you workout for an hour each day, you are doing so much more damage to your body when you don't recover.

Something you may find surprising is I don't actually believe we can live a TRULY non-toxic lifestyle.

 

Ottava and I were going to eat breakfast on our patio one beautiful morning and that's when it hit me. The smell of dryer sheets. The smell of toxins! Toxins I didn't ask for...

 

This event inspired me to do a Facebook Live in my group, as well as this podcast episode all about taking intentional steps to reduce toxic exposure.

Jul 25, 2017

Welcome back to Ask Dr. Meghan! You guys are submitting such amazing questions through email and the facebook group! In today's episode I'm going to be answering questions about what brand of activated charcoal I use, my honest thoughts on antibiotics, and tips for dealing with Candida.

Emotions. We all have them, and sometimes they get the best of us. They range from a moment of frustration all the way to an emotional pattern of feeling anxious and frazzled all the time.

 

I've been there. You've been there. We've all been there!

 

In this episode I discuss a broad overview of different strategies for supporting your emotions from a natural perspective.

 

Even though emotions aren't openly talked about, it is OKAY if you're not feeling your best or you don't have it all together. (We are not immune from experiencing emotions or feeling unbalanced with them!)

 

I could spend hours digging into supporting your emotions naturally, but because I love this topic so much, this episode is already longer than normal. I hope you enjoy!

Healthy eating is something that can be super challenging in our busy world, and I've often talked about how hard it can be on this podcast.

 

Actually, the majority of my podcasts are centered around how to eat healthy or healthy meal planning!

 

In this episode I am digging in and sharing all my best tips to help you prepare your home and kitchen for eating healthy.

 

I created this podcast because I want you to feel like your home is a place where you can fuel your body well, eating foods you enjoy that are full of nutrients, and free of the temptation of gluten or sugar (because we all know those leave us feeling less than our best!)

Intermittent fasting (or ditching breakfast as I call it!) is a hot topic right now. There's a lot of research behind the idea and I'll be the first to admit it can be a bit detailed and overwhelming to know where to start.

 

In this podcast I break down intermittent fasting into the simplest way I can. I go through the benefits of intermittent fasting, the downsides, and who should (and shouldn't) try intermittent fasting.

Since I had Ottava Ella I've gotten a lot of questions about what I feed her and what my baby feeding philosophy is. Aside from questions about her actual birth, these are the most common ones! This episode is a pretty organic conversation about why we choose to feed Ottava grain-free and some of the thoughts I had when deciding what to feed her, and when.

Jun 20, 2017

This is a topic that is a little more out of the ordinary for the podcast. It is not going to be relevant to all of you, but I think it's going to be an episode that is shared a lot because it covers a topic that isn't talked about enough. When I did a quick search on other tongue and lip tie podcasts, there are a few - but how about we throw one more in the mix?!

Jun 13, 2017

This is the second installment of my new podcast segment "Ask. Dr. Meghan" and I am loving answering your questions about simplifying healthy living.

 

I think it's such a fun and personal way to connect with you, my loyal, wonderful listeners, and continue providing the kind of content that you want to hear.

 

In today's episode, here are the questions that I'll be answering and unpacking:

 

  1. "Do I have to worry about Fluoride in Kombucha?" - Betty

  2. "What is in my version of a healthy first aid kit?" - Diane

  3. "Did you eat grain free during pregnancy? I've heard a keto diet isn't safe for pregnancy, but not sure if that's based on any research." - Julie

 

If you're curious to know the answers to these questions, be sure to tune into this week's episode!

In this episode you're going to hear me address the issue of learning to eat intuitively while still making sure to eat and live healthy.

 

This is something I struggled with for a long time. I didn't want to follow a set of rules, instead wanting to trust my body to tell me what foods I needed.

 

But, when I let up on the rules I would go wild and crazy with falling off the bandwagon and eating lots of sugar and overall way too much food. It was SUCH a struggle (and I'm guessing I'm not the only one who struggles with that, right?!)

 

Tune in to hear me answer these four main questions:

 

1. How do you love your body and eat intuitively without compromising your health?

 

2. How do you eat healthy when you don't follow a set of rules?

 

3. What is the key to eating healthy and not falling off the "bandwagon?"

 

4. What if you're struggling to see changes and intuitively eating seems like it's not for you?

Recently I received this question from a reader: "How do I eat grain-free in the real world?" Honestly this is such a common struggle, and one that I myself used to have as well!

 

Years later, I don't remember as clearly what it was like to navigate my way through the world of grain-free living, but in this episode I walk through what that journey looked like and how you can navigate that journey for yourself.

 

The reality is that, in a world where there is grain, sugar, and more grain around every. single. corner. it can feel downright impossible to eat a healthy, grain-free diet.

 

In this episode I hope you'll find both encouragement and resources to help make it possible for you!

In this first episode of my new series "Ask Dr. Meghan" I'm tackling questions submitted by listeners just like you, who want to know things like:

 

  • What are your go-to snacks?

  • What brand of raw honey do you love?

 

......and many more! Be sure to tune in, and submit your questions by emailing me at drmeghan@meghanbirt.com.

In this episode I'm sharing all about what exactly food freedom is and how to experience it for yourself. You'll hear me share about the personal challenges I overcame with food and the book that has helped me tremendously in understanding freedom more fully and how to apply it to how we approach and think about nourishing our bodies.

Let's talk adrenal fatigue because there's a chance it is something you deal with. It's estimated that 80% of people worldwide suffer from adrenal fatigue.

Adrenal fatigue is when your adrenal glands can't make cortisol in the right amounts, at the right times, in response to stress.

So what are these adrenal glands anyway? I'm sure you've heard of adrenal fatigue or even adrenal supplements. But I don't see the adrenal glands defined much.

The adrenal glands are two thumb-sized organs that sit right above your kidneys. They are part of the endocrine system, which is your hormone system.

They play a part in producing over 50 hormones that are essential for your body to function well.

Because your adrenal glands produce your stress hormones, they can be overworked and become fatigued, which causes a host of symptoms.

In this episode you will learn the symptoms of adrenal fatigue as well as my top ten tips on how to support your adrenal glands and start the process of healing.

Sponsor Spotlight: Young Living Essential Oils

In this episode I talk about which essential oils I use in supporting the adrenal glands and endocrine system.

Although I don't get into too much detail in the episode, it shows you the diverse uses that essential oils have. They are a tool in my healthy living toolbox and I believe they should be in yours too!

If you haven't already started using essential oils, you can learn how to get your starter kit here.

Safe skincare and better beauty is something you've heard me talk a lot about, and now I have a podcast resource for you to listen to all about how to choose better skincare and beauty products to improve overall health!

If you've been around for any length of time, you'll know am a total lover of Beautycounter. In fact, I love the company so much I decided to join them a few years ago to educate others on the importance of choosing better and sharing products I believe are truly amazing!

Since joining forces with Beautycounter I've grown to love the company and products more every day, but I've also recognized a need for more resources to help you learn more about safer skincare and beauty, why in the world you would want to replace your current products, and how to actually walk through the process of replacing them. It can be a big task finding products that you love that are also safer.

Although I talk a lot about Beautycounter in this episode, there are other safe skincare companies who are also making safe products (I just don't know and use them, and will only recommend things I use and love!)

One primary thing I hope you'll take away from this episode is to keep an eye out for greenwashing. Basically what that means is conventional companies claiming their products are "all natural" or "cruelty free" or "eco-friendly" (which truthfully, doesn't really mean much!)

You want to do your research with each company and product you're considering using and make sure they are testing their products and banning many of the toxic chemicals found in the vast majority of beauty products on the market.

Beautycounter is a company with that adheres to very high standards - standards that aim to keep you, the consumer, as safe and healthy as possible.

As you do your research and begin your process of swapping out your conventional products with better, healthier options, feel free to reach out to me with questions or for some personalized recommendations based on your body and skin type. I'd love to help!

Also, don't miss out on my new Safe Skincare Series that I mentioned in this episode. It's a detailed email series where you will learn SO much about the ingredients you want to avoid, the products I love, and even my own personal skincare and makeup routines!

Last but not least, this week (April 25th-May 2nd, 2017) you can snag a FREE Lip Sheer of your choice of color with any Beautycounter order of $125+.

All you have to do is forward a copy of your emailed order confirmation to me at drmeghan@meghanbirt.com along with your choice of Lip Sheer color, and I will get your gift sent out to you at the beginning of May!
