This week I have a fun, conversational episode for you that feels like a night of girl talk on the couch sprinkled with deep wisdom. Rebecca Leigh is a nutritionist passionate about all things holistic health and wellness. Her health journey began with cycles of what she thought was “healthy” – “clean eating”, counting calories, spending hours at the gym daily, and trying to look a certain way. In exploring holistic wellness, Rebecca learned the emotional and spiritual causes of her issues, examined them, and healed from them. She could quiet her inner critic and build true, lasting confidence. Living her best life meant realizing that she had everything she needed within her.

However, his young adult life couldn’t have been more different than his current reality. Around his 21st birthday, Doug was detoxing from opiates in a jail cell after years of drug addiction.

Stephanie specializes in disordered eating patterns, binge eating, emotional eating, chronic dieting, and body image concerns. She is the creator of Somatic Eating®, a body-oriented, sensation-focused therapeutic approach to connecting to your body while you are eating.   Here’s the juice: how all of the gut protocols in the world couldn’t cure Stephanie’s chronic gut issues and what finally helped her why if you're coming from a history of past trauma it’s hard to practice intuitive eating and how somatic eating must come first how binge eating is really just your body communicating to you how unsafe it feels it’s not about the food that we’re eating; it’s about the state that we’re in while we’re eating how somatic psychotherapy is communicating with the body and learning the body’s language through sensation, emotion, urges, and impulses.  the questions we should be asking ourselves when we are feeling triggered  why we need to create “micromoments” of safety to slowly introduce that it’s okay to feel safe in our bodies how we can confuse our own inner voice with the voices of others why dieting is black and white and keeps us stuck in a box ending relationships that don’t feel safe to our nervous systems can be pivotal in healing our guts Links from the ep: Get 10% off our NEW formula, Bloat BFF with code BLOAT10 on Connect with Stephanie: Follow HERE Web: HERE Connect with Olivia: Shop herbal formulas: HERE Follow: HERE

This week's episode is with none other than the amazing Michelle Shapiro! In this insightful conversation, Michelle, a Holistic RD and self-proclaimed "Queen of the Middle Ground," shares her expertise after years of working with over a thousand clients. Michelle's approach to functional nutrition involves understanding the unique story of each individual, their environment, and the timeline that led them to their current situation. By identifying the root causes, she aims to heal issues rather than just managing them superficially. For instance, there's a big difference between avoiding certain foods for acid reflux versus understanding the deeper reasons behind the issue. Here's the juice: how Michelle lost 100lbs the WRONG way before becoming a dietitian (and how this led to hypothyroidism) how almost anything that happens emotionally manifests physically, giving a whole new level of validation to symptoms that are "all in your head” anxiety is a sacred messenger telling you something that needs to be addressed in your body (nutrient deficiencies, blood sugar dysregulation, etc.) the root causes of anxiety and digestive disorders what “intuitive eating” actually is + misconceptions the extremes in the nutrition world of “no foods are toxic everything is a chemical" vs “all food must be perfectly clean” why there are no “gut healing foods” that work for everyone emotional and physical factors that contribute to binge eating and how to have compassion for our bodies trying to cope with big emotions Connect with Michelle Connect with Michelle online: HERE Follow Michelle: HERE  Connect with Olivia: Follow: HERE Shop herbal formulas: HERE
