You've probably heard that sugar isn't great for your body - that it can cause a host of different problems, from inflammation, to hormone issues, to weight gain, and beyond.

So if you're supposed to be avoiding sugar in order to be healthy...what should you be using instead?

This episode is the answer to that question, and I'm sharing a quick list of my favorite natural sweeteners, breaking down why I like them and how I use each one, and what to look for when choosing a natural sweetener for yourself!

You are truly in for a treat with this episode as I am joined by my good friend and colleague Dr. Elizabeth Berg to discuss all things breastfeeding!

Recently on Instagram I asked what pregnancy and baby-related topics you most wanted me to address on the podcast, and breastfeeding was hands down the most suggested topic.

It makes sense...breastfeeding is something women were created to do as mothers, but that doesn't mean the road to figuring it out and making it work is an easy one (or even possible for everyone!)

In this episode Dr. Elizabeth and I are answering your questions and giving you some really practical tips to help you better prepare for your breastfeeding journey.

Around the world, the postpartum period is considered to be a sacred and special time during which a mother is born, as well as her baby.

Many cultures have special practices and customs that serve to recognize and honor this special time, and women aren’t expected to “bounce back” or jump right back into their usual lives.

In the US though, we have a long way to go, which is why I’m sopassionate about sharing the practical, quick tips that I personally found to be the most helpful or surprising, to help you feel more prepared for postpartum.

My hope is that these tips will help you set realistic, healthy expectations for what your postpartum recovery and transition period should look like (otherwise known as the 4th trimester!) so you can prepare in advance to take good care of both your baby, andyourself.

In this episode I’m joined by Sarah Clark, a certified life and health coach, author Fabulously Fertile, the Fabulously Fertile Cookbook, and the Fertility Preparation Program, and host of the Get Pregnant Naturally podcast.

We are digging deep into the topic of women’s fertility and discussing how women can take a natural, holistic approach in healing and preparing their bodies for healthy pregnancy.

When Sarah Clark was 28 years old, she received a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure, accepted this diagnosis and had both her children through in vitro fertilization.

Years later she realized the root cause of her infertility was a food intolerance, which has led to her passion for educating and supporting couples in getting functional lab testing and making diet and lifestyle changes that can dramatically improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy and baby by reversing infertility.

I hope this episode will be a great, value-packed resource and really encourage you wherever you’re at in your fertility journey.

This super quick episode is to announce a brand new podcast series called Health Tips for Tired Moms that I’m excited to dive into throughout the rest of this season.

Living in today's fast-paced culture where we are bombarded with a million different options, opportunities, and decisions to make each day, it can be hard to find a good balance between saying YES to the life we want, without running ourselves ragged.

 

In this episode I'm sitting down to chat with Rachel Green, a city girl turned farmer's wife who has grown to love and cherish slow living, abut how we can find balance in the busy and create lives we love.

 

For the past six years Rachel has been serving women who want more from life - who want freedom to do what they love and live the life they dream of living too.

 

Through intentional business development, valuable education and resources, and a place of community, she is wholeheartedly devoted to giving women that dream and helping them pursue their passions.

 

She doesn't claim to have it all figured out - she's in the middle of it, just like you! But she strives to live her life for what really matters and take time to enjoy each day as it comes.

 

As a small business owner, wife and mother, she knows firsthand that it's hard to draw the line between our work and the rest of our lives. But, she believe that we can.

On this episode of Ask Dr. Meghan I am unpacking a big question. Elizabeth is basically asking what is the difference between Candida, parasites, SIBO, and gut dysbiosis.

 

Whew! It's a great question and one I am not really going to be able to answer because every body is so very different and requires an individualized treatment plan. 

 

Yeast overgrowth treatment fact vs fiction. Same for SIBO, gut dysbiosis, or maybe compare/contrast these conditions. There's so much conflicting info out there, it can be overwhelming. -Elizabeth

 

I hope you enjoy this episode of Ask Dr. Meghan! Don't forget to email me or hop on over to our Facebook Community to ask all your questions and maybe be featured on the next Ask Dr. Meghan episode!

So many people think that a calorie is just a calorie, but it's not as simple as that. God made your body to be a science factory and you should be supplying that factory with nutrient dense food!

 

Today on the podcast I am NOT going to be telling you how many calories you should be eating. Nope. This episode I am going to tell you about what calories are and how they work in our bodies.

This may be a repeat for those of you who know all about gluten. However, if you have not done a lot of research about gluten and going gluten free, then this will be the podcast episode for you!

 

As you will hear when you listen, gluten is a group of proteins in certain grains. It is also the cause of many, many reactions, including come autoimmune diseases, decreased brain functions, and also skin problems. 

 

I don't follow many food rules, but this one I recommend 100%! Check out this week's episode and let me know what you think. If you have questions, email me or hop into the Just Enjoy Health Facebook Group and ask your questions!

When we think of food, it can be scary to think that there are foods we are eating that help cause chronic inflammation and cancers. 

 

Did you know that chronic inflammation can be something as simple as a sore throat all the way to depression or an autoimmune disease?

 

Did you know that on 5-10% of cancers are related to genes?

 

This means that there are things we need to do to heal our bodies and tools/systems we need to develop to help fight mutated cells and hormones.

 

Today, I have Kim Maravich joining me to talk all about these foods and foods that can help PREVENT inflammation and cancer. I am so excited to have her on because she is just a wealth of knowledge on the topic. Check out the episode below! (Keep a pen and paper handy; there's so many golden nuggets!)

I was a little nervous to interview Dr. Libby. Not because I didn't want to talk to her, but I really wanted this podcast to encompass all I've learned and she teaches about EMFs. This means a lot to me and I really think we were able to get the job done. I think this podcast could be your one stop shop for what to do to protect yourself and your family from EMFs.

 

In the podcast we walk through a few areas in our home and what to do and how to reduce EMF exposure:
- Computers
- Cell Phone/ Tablets (and making them kid friendly)
- Watches
- Smart TV's and wired home
- Smart TV's
- Dirty Electricity
- In home EMF Testing

Weight loss is something that is on a lot of people's "to-do" list. We all want to feel our best and want to be the weight we feel we should be at our healthiest. However, weight loss can be frustrating! We are bombarded by all sorts of ads and articles about diets, cleanses, pills, potions and lotions all guaranteeing to help you drop pounds (and often times all to quickly and not in a healthy way).

 

Are you frustrated? Are you feeling like you’re at the end of your rope? Do you try “everything” and still feel like the scale doesn’t budge?

 

GUESS WHAT? YOU’RE NOT ALONE AND IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT!

 

Join me in this episode as I talk all about the different reasons as to why you might not be losing the weight you want.

I'm going to be BOLD... I believe that it is important to invest in your health. And this episode we aren't going to talk about investing time. We are going to talk about investing MONEY.

 

Yep, this is a big doozy of a podcast season finale. I'm talking money and health and why YES... you should spend money on it.

 

This week I am talking about five main points:

  1. Instant gratification vs. long term investment
  2. Saves you money in the long run
  3. Living a natural lifestyle is more money, but is it a priority?
  4. It is okay to spend money on your health
  5. Keep educating yourself

 

I don't want you to feel bad about the decisions you have made in the past. Your body is an amazing thing and if you start investing in your health now, who knows what kind of illnesses and ailments you will be preventing!

 

We will be back in a few weeks! If you have any topics you are dying to know about, message me and I would love to include them!

Jan 2, 2018

Okay, my friends... It has taken me 59 episodes to get here, but I finally did it! Chiropractic care is my absolute passion and I get asked questions all the time about it. 

 

I am a HUGE believer that making small adjustments to your body allows our body to heal itself. I also believe that EVERYONE should be adjusted on a regular basis.

 

There are so many people who are nervous about going, or who go a couple of times and see no results. Well, it's just like when you get braces or train for a marathon.. You need to go for a while before you are able to see the benefits. But friend! If you DO go, the results will be amazing!! 

 

One thing I would like to add, is make sure you find a chiropractor who focuses on wellness as a whole. They will make sure to teach you about your body and how to allow it to heal properly.
