Description

Welcome to the juiciest conversations in wellness with Olivia Amitrano, founder of Organic Olivia. “What’s The Juice” is a podcast as multifaceted as its listeners — a fierce community on a courageous path of self improvement, learning, and healing. Here we share conversations that bridge traditional wisdom and modern science, offering a balance of tangible advice and perspective-shifting philosophies that will optimize your health and change the way you see the world.

One week we’ll spill the (herbal) tea on functional medicine for hormone imbalance, while the next we’ll dive deep into psychedelic assisted therapy, codependency and learning how to say no.

Olivia is a clinical herbalist, formulator, entrepreneur, and, most notably, an educator. Each episode is an opportunity to synthesize her education in herbalism, psychology, and a lifetime of health issues into actionable tips on how to not only heal but thrive. Interviews with doctors, therapists, holistic practitioners, astrologers, artists, and storytellers are brimming with raw, human moments and empowering information. Candid and ever curious, Olivia is on a mission to understand the human condition and share what she learns along the way. Above all, her goal is to connect you with the paradigms, practitioners and teachers you can rely on to help get you to the next level. Peeling back the layers isn’t always pretty, but the juice is worth the squeeze.

What if the key to weight loss isn’t actually about what’s on our plates? Today I’m chatting with a true gem of a human being as well as a kick-ass nutritionist. Nicki Parlitsis helps her clients achieve their goals but also understand WHY they might be harming themselves with food through binging or restricted diets. In this episode she unpacks how binging is often a deeper reflection on our lives, showing us exactly what we need to focus on within ourselves to ultimately heal our relationship with food. We also discuss why binging is both an emotional AND physical response for many of us and how we can tune into the signs our bodies are giving us before we start to go down toxic paths.   HERE’S THE JUICE: The difference between physical and emotional binge eating Why women tend to fear gaining muscle and what it actually means to “tone” your body The importance of training your brain in steps and why intuitive eating is a graduate level course in dietetics What an all-or-nothing mindset with food looks like and how it contributes to binge eating The fact that something as simple as thinking about meals as events can help retrain your brain to get out of a snacking mindset and into a space of intentional eating Nicki’s favorite client hack of meal prepping like a chef  Why binge eating is not the problem and how to get to the root of what’s happening in your body Why listening to your hunger cues is the first step to take even if it means abandoning your diet   Watch the full episode on What’s The Juice YouTube Channel    To support our ad-free show, shop Olivia’s line of herbalist-formulated supplements for digestion, anxiety, thyroid support, and more by visiting www.organicolivia.com.    Connect with Nicki: Instagram Website  Just Start Somewhere Application   Connect with Olivia: Follow Organic Olivia  Olivia’s personal IG Organic Olivia on TikTok Read Olivia’s blog posts
When was the last time you did a radical 180 about a long held belief? Today I’m sitting down with a brilliant dentist who was once picketing in the streets for water fluoridation — yet was courageous enough to change her mind and speak out once she dug into the data once and for all. Meet Dr. Staci Whitman, a board-certified dentist who takes a whole-body, holistic and functional approach to oral health. In this episode, Staci unpacks the surprising factors that contribute to the decline of our oral health including mouth breathing, hormones, and gut dysbiosis. She explains why these underlying root causes are ignored by conventional dentistry and exactly what we need to be asking about and advocating for at our dentist appointments.   HERE’S THE JUICE: Functional vs. conventional dentistry and the importance of both Why dental professionals haven't introduced oral microbiome testing as a baseline for all patients  How hormone imbalance is leading to an increase in cavities in women and the signs to look for in prevention What LPS is and how it contributes to pathogenic bacteria overgrowth The fact that we aren’t taught about healthy bacteria and are encouraged to wipe out all our bacteria with products like Listerine  Why dentists are sometimes the first people to diagnose Crohn's disease and how your oral health can inform gut health What a cavity is and how it forms When we may be able to repair cavities without requiring fillings Why mouth breathing is so detrimental to our oral health and how to retrain yourself into healthy breathing habits  Resources and recommendations for the products and services we should be talking to our dentist about to be proactive about our oral health   Watch the full episode on What’s The Juice YouTube Channel  To support our ad-free show, shop Olivia’s line of herbalist-formulated supplements for digestion, anxiety, thyroid support, and more by visiting www.organicolivia.com.    Connect with Staci: Website  Instagram Oral Microbiome Reset Course Her Kid's Dental Practice Fygg - code ORGANICOLIVIA20 for 20% off Connect with Olivia: Follow Organic Olivia  Olivia’s personal IG Organic Olivia on TikTok Read Olivia’s blog posts
Statistically, there are 15 core people in our lives who will show up when sh$# hits the fan – our mother’s funeral, a cancer diagnosis – they’re on the next plane. What if instead of filling our schedules working towards buying more things, we spent time nurturing the relationships that are truly all we have? In a modern day loneliness epidemic, lack of connection is becoming a disease, but our generation can turn it around. Sah D’Simone is here to say that even though relationships are hard, families are messy, and conflict is scary, this is the only path back to love and longevity. Sah is a spiritual leader, hospital chaplain who supports those at the end of life, and international best-selling author of Spiritually We. In this episode, he breaks down how to increase our capacity so that we can hold space for our people and right our relationships.   HERE’S THE JUICE: Why human connection is a basic biological need (and how we’ve gotten so far away) Why pop psychology is doing us a disservice by teaching us to cut off relationships with conflict instead of learning to face it The difference between how easy it is to be spiritual alone in meditation vs. at the family dinner table when triggers come up How to nurture true connection over complain culture and trauma-bonding relationships Why your closest relationships are often the most triggering  How to live with integrity and what a lack of integrity looks like in your closest bonds Why “conflict is your lovers” how to resolve conflict in a healthy way Why time away from your parents may be necessary to grow and heal, but the goal is to always bring it back around Why intellectualizing your feelings and making meaning keeps you from feeling your feelings How to support someone in grief and the magnitude of holding space for loss    Watch the full episode on What’s The Juice YouTube Channel  To support our ad-free show, shop Olivia’s line of herbalist-formulated supplements for digestion, anxiety, thyroid support, and more by visiting www.organicolivia.com.    Connect with Sah: Website  Instagram Youtube Connect with Olivia: Follow Organic Olivia  Olivia’s personal IG Organic Olivia on TikTok Read Olivia’s blog posts
What does “good nutrition” actually mean – and why have we built a BILLION dollar industry that only makes us more confused about how to feed ourselves? Why is it that one day the internet is telling you to be a raw vegan, and 5 years later carnivore is suddenly a panacea? Shyla Cadogan is a registered dietitian focused on making nutrition simple again. Shyla explores the extensive impact that processed foods have on our bodies, while at the same time not putting perfection, whole foods or ‘superfoods’ on a pedestal. She brings some much needed nuance (and humor) to the question: what the heck should I eat and who should I listen to?   HERE’S THE JUICE: Shyla’s transition from intense vegan diets to an unattached, simple way of fueling The importance of finding the middle ground with nutrition rather than opting into extremes Why nutrition professionals have a duty to keep things professional rather than trying to be cutting edge or go viral How the concept of intuitive eating has gotten warped and why most of us are practicing it all wrong and feeling bad about it How you can be anti-diet-culture and still not eat a lot of processed foods Why Shyla says “a true relationship with food is having no relationship with it at all” The importance of not shaming people for being imperfect in their health decisions and educating in a considerate manner The history of “superfoods” and why the term is a bit of a scam The distrust that the public currently has in dietitians (ie. thinking they’re paid by big pharma!) How processed foods were originally created for war times and food corporations have used that opportunity to exploit us How cultural foods play a role in healthy eating   Watch the full episode on What’s The Juice YouTube Channel  To support our ad-free show, shop Olivia’s line of herbalist-formulated supplements for digestion, anxiety, thyroid support, and more by visiting www.organicolivia.com.   Connect with Shyla: Follow her on Instagram Sign up for her newsletter Connect with Olivia: Follow Organic Olivia  Olivia’s personal IG Organic Olivia on TikTok Read Olivia’s blog posts

Join the Highly Sensitive Body (HSB) Hub HERE’S THE JUICE: Michelle’s own story of being sick with a mysterious cluster of symptoms after COVID and mold exposure (and how she healed) What MCAS is, the symptoms caused by histamine intolerance and why it’s SO hard to get diagnosed The connection between long COVID and MCAS that’s not talked about Why MCAS is really a physical “allergy to stress” and nervous system disorder that pushes the immune system into overdrive How seemingly healthy treatment plans actually make things worse in people with histamine issues What it might mean if you get dizzy easily, have trouble concentrating or experience a racing heart Why hypermobility, POTS and MCAS often go together How histamine intolerance magnifies anxiety, depression, ADHD and PMDD in women Michelle’s loving approach to healing histamine issues and supporting your body gently The exact foods to avoid if you have histamine intolerance and how to reduce flares  Her favorite supplements and herbs that can lower histamine levels How to strength train in a way that doesn’t cause more harm  Why we can’t completely discount pharmaceutical tools like antihistamines when initially healing The next steps to take if you think you may have a highly sensitive body   Watch the full episode on What’s The Juice YouTube Channel  To support our ad-free show, shop Olivia’s line of herbalist-formulated supplements for digestion, anxiety, thyroid support, and more by visiting www.organicolivia.com.    Connect with Michelle: Join the Highly Sensitive Body (HSB) Hub Get 1:1 support from Michelle and her team Follow her on Instagram Listen to the Quiet the Diet podcast Connect with Olivia: Follow Organic Olivia  Olivia’s personal IG Organic Olivia on TikTok Read Olivia’s blog posts

Amber is a seasoned herbalist who handmakes beautiful plant medicines for people who yearn for knowledge about herbalism, deepening ancestral connections, and remembering what it is to be human upon the earth. She helps people to drop cultural disconnection and disempowerment, and to return to old ways of being. I loved swapping stories of spiritual plant experiences with Amber and I hope this conversation inspires you to connect with the plants that are calling to you!   Here’s the juice:   Why herbalism is really about our relationships with plants, rather than using plants to treat specific ailments What the concept and process of plant communication looks like The experience that made her realize the mythical power of plants How plants treat our spirits by bringing us into ourselves in a deeper way – bringing us into alignment with our true essence How body oiling can help with boundary setting + how to make your own oil at home The importance of using plants before, during and after pregnancy Plants don’t come to us unless we’re ready for them and the lessons they teach us What the role of herbalism is in our modern day health care system now and in the future    Links from the ep:  Use this link to try Notion's powerful A.I tool for free! using this link HERE   Connect with Amber:  Follow HERE  Web HERE  Podcast HERE   Connect with Olivia:  Follow HERE  Shop herbal formulas HERE   
This episode is a masterclass in all things breathwork, Kundalini, meditation, and deep emotional healing. When I did a trip to California this year I had this insane virus that was affecting the nerves in my neck. I was in so much pain and it was very much mirroring this emotional pain that I was in. I ended up having a one-on-one breath work session with Erika and I cried like a baby. It was the first time that I felt safe to actually let go and acknowledge how much pain I was in. I loved her technique and the way that she taught and held space for me felt so comfortable — I knew that I had to have her on the podcast so that she could give you guys a little bit of that magic that she shared with me and our one-on-one breathwork session.  Links from the ep:  use code olivia for 15% off your first one-month supply of NOBS using this link betterbiom.com/olivia receive 20% OFF any AquaTru purifier using code "JUICE" using this link: AquaTru.com sign up for unlimited mediations and resources with Erika using this link: evolvebyerika.com Here's the juice: Erika's breathwork method and how to use it in your own practice why it's so important for you to start your day with a 5-minute meditation or sound healing how breathwork can help you “take out the garbage” from yesterday so that you can actually have space for what's coming in today why  actively letting go and releasing through your own voice and breath helps set you up to receive the goodness that you might otherwise be blocking how to use breathwork to tackle real-life stress in the moment how to create a very simple morning routine and practice where you can utilize the techniques that she learned to really catapult yourself into a whole different chapter of your life  how simply changing the state that you're in when you wake up can set your whole day up for success how breathwork and Kundalini can raise your energy and help you access joy why changing your own energy has a palpable impact on those around you  other energetic techniques that you can learn and lean on during the different phases of your life  how and why breathwork works to soothe, balance, and nourish your nervous systems Connect with Erika: Follow HERE Web HERE Connect with Olivia: Follow HERE Shop herbal formulas HERE
