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:
- Cell Phone/ Tablets (and making them kid friendly)
- 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:
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!
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.
I am so excited to bring to you another interview this week with my friend Meredyth Cann! Meredyth thinks so much like I do about health and food, but she has gone deeper into the food/biblical freedom and health with a biblical mindset and I am beyond thrilled to share our chat with you!
I am so very excited to bring you this week's podcast! Today I am interviewing my good friend, Diana Kerr! Diana is a certified professional life coach for goal oriented, driven christian women.

Check out this week's episode and GO SIGN UP for Diana's email hugs. They are amazing!
I LOVE talking about the immune system, which sounds super weird, but I really do think about it a lot. The immune system means "to be protected." So from cells to skin to gut makes up your immune system. You want to make sure you are building by eating the right foods, getting enough sleep, and taking care of yourself to help prevent sickness.
However, when you do get sick, because you will, your immune system will be stronger and be able to fight the illness off quicker.
So many of us go straight for the over-the-counter meds when there are so many natural ways to help. In today's episode I have some tips and thoughts on what you can take in order to help support your immune system when not feeling well.
For some of us, the holiday season can bring up so many feelings of stress and anxiety around food! Let me tell you something... it doesn't have to be that way!!
In this week's podcast episode I am giving you some tips on how to eat healthy during the holidays. I am so excited to share that it doesn't have to be hard! With a few adjustments and some changes with your mindset, it can be smooth sailing through the holidays.
I am so excited to be back this week answering all the questions on supplements! I had so many questions about kid supplements and I have some great suggestions. Remember this is NOT medical advice.
Enjoy and let me know what you think!!
Did you know that your cell phone, laptop, iPad, or anything that has wireless frequencies can be causing more harm to your body than you know?
On today's podcast episode, I have Daniel DeBaun talking all about EMF dangers and protection. EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) and EMRs (electromagnetic radiations) are interchangeable terms, so you might hear one or the other used, but know they mean the same thing.
One thing that a lot of people misunderstand is that there is actually a lot of research about EMFs and how they can cause harm to our bodies. I love that we go into this a bit in the episode because it is so important to know that the sheilds are based off research and not just a feeling that harm can be caused.
I hope you don't feel overwhelmed by this episode. EMF's are a big deal, yet are also a little tricky because we live in a total tech immersed society. Don't feel like you need to live and move out onto land off the grid to protect yourself. We talk a lot about some great tips to help with EMF's and learn to shield yourself.
Check out the episode and let me know what you think! I can't wait to hear from you!
Today I am talking all about bloating on the podcast and how to minimize it.
This might sound a little strange, but the gut is an amazing part of our body. It's sometimes referred to as the 2nd brain because it does so much in regulating our body. Our body (the gut) sends us signals and we need to be able to trust them. If our gut is off, then it is impossible to be able to tell if our body is being truthful.
Something that a lot of people don't know is that you cannot solve gut issues with food alone. Food sensitivities are huge, but you could also have a gut infection or not enough good bacteria.
This podcast is NOT medical advice, nor is it full of practical advice. I just really wanted to give you some things to think about and to be inspired to take some action on healing your body. Take a listen and let me know what you think!
Meal planning has become such a hot topic lately. We know that it can save us time and money in a practical sense, but have you ever thought about WHY you meal plan and how it can be biblical and help you serve your family well?
My good friend Natasha Red is on the podcast with me today discussing just this! Her heart and mission is meal planning and how it can relieve unnecessary stress and improve relationships!
Natasha created a Seasonal Meal Planner to help busy moms be more intentional about their time so they can serve their family in a calm and loving manner. When you think about food, it's not just fuel for your body, it also is something that brings us joy and comfort. It's a way for us to love people.
This podcast is a bit longer than most, but it is so so good! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Join me in this week's episode while I talk about dairy and how it's not so cut and dry on whether or not you should remove it from your diet.
Welcome back to another episode of Ask Dr. Meghan! Today we are talking all about safer skincare and how it is SO important to take good care of your skin!
Did you know that everything you put on your skin is absorbed into the body? This means that if you are using skincare products full of chemicals, those are getting into your precious body, or your baby's body.
By taking small, simple steps you can reduce your body's toxic load, which does amazing things!
Check out all there is in this week's episode! I am unpacking the why it is important as well as how to help three different skin types.
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 am answering and unpacking these questions from readers just like 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!
