GUT HEALTH, MENTAL HEALTH, AND BONE BROTH
Episode 3: The beginning and the end: GUT HEALTH! We start this series of The Doctor is In with the holy grail of all health issues – the Gut ! “All disease begins in the gut” says Dr. Patrick Fratellone, who is the doctor in call with me at the table. We dive deep into this issue on this episode and in the future as there is much to uncover. From why gut health is so important…to its link to mental health. No…you are NOT crazy! It could be your GUT!! This is a personal mission for me, to let you know that your mental health could lie right in front of you, on your plate! Please join me and let’s get into this very misunderstood issue.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT- Depression and panic disorder coming from your gut? Are you ready to truly believe this link? Eighty Five percent of our serotonin, which dictates mood, exists in our gut. If the gut is off the brain is off. For far too long we have been sold the idea that somehow our bodies and mind are two separate issues. Please listen to my ongoing guest, Dr Patrick Fratelone, as we help you understand that what ails your mind may be exactly whats ailing your body.
FOOD FOR LIFE- Bone Broth
REELING, HEALING, AND EATING DONUTS
Episode 2: Combining passionate guests and donuts is always a good idea; especially as of late with the insanity of the world around us. I gathered some wonderful women to discuss the current state of what it looks like to be female right now; the rage, the sorrow, how to keep sane, and how to move forward even better. We reel, we heal and we eat many donuts.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT- Are you a female who is mad right now? Do you feel unheard? Do you even recognize your rage or even allow it? The opening quote in the podcast is from Rebecca Traisters book, GOOD AND MAD, THE REVOLUTIONARY POWER OF WOMEN ANGER. I strongly suggest giving it a read and start to forgive yourself for the anger and even welcome it. It is far healthier than you think.
FOOD FOR LIFE- Baked Buckwheat Donuts
