Why NOW is the best time for this…

Happy first week of Fall if you are in the northern hemisphere and Spring if you’re in the southern.

I personally love the cycle of seasons and the variety they add to life.  I can’t wait to indulge in some of my favorite fall foods and decorate my house with all things Halloween.

But I didn’t always feel this way…

Seasonal shifts used to really get me down because of the impacts they had on my health. Every Fall and Spring I would struggle with:

  • Foggy brain
  • Low energy
  • Congestion
  • Earaches or infections
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • And downright just feeling blah!

When I moved from Northern California to sunny San Diego for college, I started suffering from seasonal allergies which I found to be odd since I had moved from a farming town full of pollen to a place with refreshing ocean breezes, so it didn’t really make sense. But I brushed it off ignoring the smoke signals my body was sending.

I’ll never forget walking home from class on the dreadfully hot San Diego Fall days (yes, it can get very hot in San Diego from about August to November due to the Santa Ana winds coming from the East pulling dry heat and all kinds of pollen with them). I lived in a seasonal allergy haze on these days. I couldn’t think straight, I had headaches and recurring earaches, and despite how much coffee I drank I couldn’t break the wall of fatigue.

Now seasonal shifts are a blip on my radar. I still feel them but they don’t take me down the way they used to anymore. For perspective, my symptoms are a 1 or 2 on a scale of 1-10 when they used to be an 8 to 10.

Seasonal allergies might be common, but they are not necessarily normal.

The frequency and intensity of seasonal allergies are clues about your body’s detox, digestive, and immune system function since they represent an inflammatory response; the more frequent and intense, the bigger the indication is for poor body system function.

The stronger and healthier your body systems are, the more resilient and thus less reactive you’ll be to things like pollens and allergens in the air.

Over time, I have implemented strategies to reduce the inflammatory load on my body that has drastically reduced the intensity of my seasonal sensitives down to almost zero. And when the seasons change, I have a few other tricks up my sleeve to keep even the smallest symptoms at bay.

When seasonal shifts started to hit me hard in my early 20s, my inflammatory way of living at the time didn’t help my case. I was…

  • Eating mucous-producing foods like gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, and alcohol 
  • Staying up late and not getting adequate sleep for my body to recover daily
  • Working out hard when my body was depleted from poor sleep and food choices
  • Enduring long stressful days going to school full-time, working and interning
  • Dealing with a variety of very emotional family and relationship events

This combination of emotional stress, less-than-ideal nights of sleep, hitting the gym hard, hidden environmental toxins, alcohol, and sub-optimal food choices increases the demand for cortisol to regulate stress and inflammation.

The constant demand for cortisol due to an overstimulated fight or flight response really starts to wear down your body over time, and it can lead to all kinds of body system imbalances that express themselves as symptoms like seasonal allergies.

The good news is… to restore balance to your body and reverse symptoms like seasonal allergies, it’s actually quite simple.

You can do this daily by:

  • Eating the right foods for your body
  • Being asleep by 10 pm and sleeping through the night
  • Moving your body daily and decreasing exercise intensity on days you feel tired
  • Drinking at least half of your body weight in ounces of water to flush toxins
  • Taking time to destress and disconnect daily even if it’s for 5 minutes at a time
  • Gradually eliminating toxins from your environment 

All of which I guide you through in my 28-Day Cleanse Challenge.

In fact, NOW is the perfect time to focus on supporting your body in these ways.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Fall and Spring are the best times of year to cleanse and detox the body of harmful impurities that have collected in our organs and tissues to restore balance to the body and prepare for the next season ahead.

I created the 28-Day Cleanse Challenge to give you a step-by-step easy way to detox for increased energy, weight loss, hormone and digestive balance that decreases belly bloat, allergies, and other symptoms of poor health.

It’s even specifically designed for health-minded people like you who want to take their health to the next level, naturally.

Join now for just $28

This challenge will help you boost your body’s natural detox process using foods and gentle cleansing methods, so you can:

  • Shed stubborn pounds
  • Boost your energy
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Enhance your hormones and overall health

The 28-day Cleanse Challenge starts as soon as you enroll (there’s no waiting), and you can participate for just $1 per day!

Your body is hard at work for you all year long—it’s constantly filtering out toxins that you unknowingly or knowingly are exposed to; digesting and converting food to energy for you; and even running on little sleep or pushing through overworking.

Doing a cleanse during the ideal times of Fall and Spring always helps refresh my body, boost my energy, and maintain my ideal weight.

Consider the Cleanse Challenge as an opportunity to recommit yourself to healthy practices after Summer, to prepare your body for winter, and to get ahead of the holidays that are coming up!

Joining the 28-Day Cleanse Challenge is like hitting the “reset button.”  

Because we’re not perfect (and we shouldn’t expect ourselves to be); you can’t control all the variables in your life or health all the time. And because your body works so hard for you every day, this is a chance to give it 28 days of your undivided attention to reset yourself to feel your best.  

Here’s how the Cleanse Challenge works. Over the course of 28 days, you will…

  • Learn what ratio of proteins, carbs, and fats that are best for your body to boost your energy, weight loss, balance hormones, reduce belly bloat and inflammation
  • Incorporate the highest naturally detoxifying foods (beets, grapefruit, dandelion greens) into your daily routine to promote the body’s natural cleansing systems
  • Focus on minimizing your intake of the top inflammatory and hormone-disrupting foods: gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, and alcohol
  • Get accountability to work out regularly, drink plenty of water, and get quality sleep in order to support the body’s cleansing and healing process
  • Receive 30-minute weekly educational webinars and be part of a special Facebook group for support
  • Receive recipes and a checklist to guide you along your journey
  • Get exclusive resources and discounts to help you along your journey and beyond!

Throughout my health journey, I have incorporated all of these strategies into my daily way of being to eliminate seasonal health issues, boost energy, lose weight, and create long-lasting sustainable results.

If you’re not sure whether a cleanse is right for you or not, here are 10 common signs your body needs cleansing:

  1. Seasonal allergies
  2. Abdominal bloating
  3. Menstrual irregularities
  4. Abdominal fat aka a pot belly
  5. Joint and muscle pain
  6. Low energy or fatigue
  7. Acid reflux/heartburn
  8. Body odor, hot flashes, and excessive sweating
  9. Acne, rosacea, or itchy, blotchy skin
  10. Unexplained weight gain and inability to lose weight even with calorie restriction

Will you join me and many others to shed pounds, boost your energy naturally, and cleanse your body so you can feel like your best self again?

4 Simple fasting steps…

If you follow me closely on Instagram or Facebook, then you probably know I’ve done quite a few 3-day fasts over the years.

In fact, I completed my 12th one just last week.

But let me tell you, I didn’t just jump into fasting overnight. (Ha! No pun intended.)

Yes, fasting can produce some major health benefits, and it’s been used for a long time as a therapeutic tool to help reverse or prevent health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

However, without the right supervision, guidance, or preparation, fasting can do more damage than good.

There was a time when my body couldn’t even handle intermittent fasting for 12 hours, let alone 3 full days.

I eased into prolonged fasting over time, and I’m going to share the 4 simple steps I took to get there so you can use fasting as an appropriate health tool as well.

The reality is, that fasting isn’t right for everyone, regardless of how popular it is.  I’ve seen too many clients walk through my virtual practice door frustrated with the lack of results they’ve seen from their fasting attempts, or feeling wiped out and worse off after trying it.

In the midst of healing my Hashimotos and reversing mold illness, my body couldn’t tolerate fasting at all.  My body was too toxic, depleted, and dysfunctional at the time to metabolize fat for fuel and feel good while fasting, even for short periods.

Fasting has been a part of human existence probably since the beginning of time, as our ancestors roamed the earth alternating through times of feast or famine and hibernation during the winter months.

However, our modern-day culture has altered our fasting instincts with the introduction of fast food drive-thrus, processed foods with exceptionally long shelf lives, and high carbohydrate and sugar diets that leave you craving more food than ever before.

To top it all off, the majority of our modern-day food leads to blood sugar issues, hormone imbalances, and liver and gut dysfunction, which negatively impact your ability to utilize fasting effectively as a tool.

And then there are the toxins and stressors that our bodies encounter every day, which alter hormonal balance and other metabolic processes, leaving the body less equipped for effective fasting.

A body that was once born with a natural ability to tolerate fasting no longer can due to the evolution of the food industry and our environment.

In this week’s video and blog, I’m going to give you 4 simple steps you can take to get your body into fasting shape and to make fasting more effective.

Let’s break down what fasting is first…

When it comes to intermittent fasting (especially as it relates to the Keto diet), there are basically two schools of thought:

#1- Fasting means not eating anything containing calories or nutrients for a period of time (i.e. water fasting).

#2- Fasting means not eating any sources of immediate energy, such as carbs or proteins (i.e. sometimes fats are ok)

Both approaches focus on training the body to primarily utilize fat stores for energy to become “fat-adapted.” The standard American diet and even most other whole food or primal diets, such as Paleo and Whole30, constantly supply the body with readily available fuel sources in the forms of carbohydrates (veggies, fruits, nuts, etc.) and proteins (meat, beans, etc.)

Training the body to be fat-adapted requires limiting sources to these readily available types of fuel and forcing the body to tap into its own fuel storage – fat.

Then there are prolonged fasting periods, which typically exceed 24 hours and can go on for days.  At this point, one’s body ideally should be fat-adapted in order to access its own fuel source so you can feel your best during these longer stints.

With prolonged fasting, there are also multiple schools of thought. Some do “water only” fasts while others might include a daily cup of bone broth, like I do sometimes. Most approaches produce health benefits and you should choose one that works best for you and is in alignment with your goals.

I use prolonged fasting as a tool to restore and repair my digestive tract every few months. The cells of the intestinal lining have the ability to completely regenerate within 72 hours if you avoid consuming food, giving you a whole new, stronger, healthier digestive tract.

Having a cup of bone broth at night and taking daily supplements helps to restore the gut and maximize fat metabolism for additional benefits, such as toxin elimination, hormonal health, energy, and sleep.

But as I cautioned earlier, fasting isn’t for everyone, at least not in the current state of health you might be in.  It’s always important to consult with your health professional before trying any method of fasting.

And before you jump right in, follow these 4 simple steps to get your body into fasting shape and to make fasting more effective…

1 – Test, don’t guess.  
It’s better to know about underlying hormone or nutrient imbalances before you dive into fasting. At a minimum, check your thyroid, cortisol, estrogen, testosterone, and melatonin levels, along with your vitamin and mineral balance before starting a fasting routine.  If any imbalances exist, lay the foundation to reverse them with a therapeutic diet, adequate sleep, appropriate exercise, stress reduction, and nourishing supplements before jumping into fasting.

2 – Fuel up with fat.
Slowly ease your body into the transition by fasting with fat as your primary fuel source.  Fat is not readily available as fuel when ingested so it still requires your body to tap into its own fat fuel sources. Allow yourself to have a fat-only meal in the morning, such as  coffee or matcha tea with ghee and/or full-fat coconut milk. This will deliver some of the essential nutrients your body needs so it can still function at its potential while staying away from carbs or proteins that can hijack fat for fuel metabolism.

Training your body to use fat for fuel is the key to having energy and sleeping well while fasting.

3 – Ease into it.
Don’t go for the gold right from the get-go. Start by making dinner your last meal, fasting overnight, and gradually extending out the time you eat breakfast in the morning a few days a week. This is basically what’s called Intermittent Fasting.

I started by having dinner by 7:30pm and my first meal around 9:30 or 10am the next morning, resulting in a 14-hour fasting period. As your body adapts, your energy will improve, letting you know when you can extend the length of your fasting window.

(NOTE: Women’s hormones are particularly sensitive to food deprivation, so it’s best to fast every other day instead of every day when getting started, and to honor your body’s needs around certain times of your cycle.)

4 – Salt and supplement.
When avoiding food, you’re also avoiding access to nutrients, so it’s essential to supplement what you’re missing. When fasting, supplementing with vitamins and minerals will help maintain sleep quality, keep your hormones happy, and your energy balanced, and support the process of fat metabolism. Our ancestors salted meats to cure them for food storage and ate every part of the animal (organs, cartilage, etc.) so the nutrient values in their bodies were much higher than ours, even when they were forced to fast.

While fasting, I continue to take my daily supplements to ensure my body has the nutrients it needs to get the job done.

Certain herbal teas, such as Pique Tea, also help support the body while fasting. During prolonged fasting periods, I’ll have 1-2 cups of black or green tea in the morning and one cup of green tea in the afternoon.

Plus, I add an extra packet of LMNT electrolytes to maintain hydration, balance cortisol, and boost energy.

I also take specific binders to help capture toxins being released from fat (where they are stored) as it’s broken down for fuel to make sure they are eliminated and not recirculated.

You’ll know your body is ready for fasting when your energy is even all day long and your sleep is spectacular, especially when you start to lengthen time between meals.

We want to think of the body as a well-oiled machine that is ready to adapt to anything we throw at it, but that’s generally not the case, considering all the variables that impact our health in this modern-day world.

With most diet trends, people have a tendency to dive all-in without considering if their body is ready for it, and when it “doesn’t work,” they give up.

Often, it’s not the diet that didn’t work, but something else under the hood that got in the way. This is why it’s always better to test, not guess, in order to figure out exactly what is right for your body so you don’t go spinning your wheels, wasting money or time on failed attempts or health improvement strategies that aren’t right for you.

Want to get your body back now?

I have been obsessed with planning all the details for our upcoming trip to Spain, including all of the cute and activewear outfits I need to pack along with the best shoes for long days of walking and exploring.

But it made me wonder…how are you feeling in your body?

I’ve had my fair share of body image and health struggles, but through all of it I learned how to love my body regardless of what it looked or felt like. Eventually, with the right lab tests and resources, I was able to get my body back to feeling like home again for good.

You deserve to look and feel your best too, and I’m proof that it’s possible for you.

Summer and travel plans tend to stir up all kinds of judgments, criticisms, wants, and desires related to how you feel in your body.

Would you love to feel like your old self again so you can live life to the fullest?

…the energetic, clear-minded, great skin, creative, in-shape, productive, pain-free and bloat-free person you used to be?

I know. I’ve been there, and many of the clients I’ve worked with have been too.

There once was a time when I felt like a stranger in my own body.

Acne took over the radiant skin I was always so proud of. Extra weight or bloating hid the muscle tone I worked so hard for and drastically reduced my outfit options. Low energy limited my ability to basically show up in life; to be the social butterfly I had always been, to be present or creative in my work and at home.

All I could think about was a time when I felt physically and mentally fit. I didn’t have any limitations. All I wanted was to find myself in that place again.

Do you ever find yourself wondering why you don’t have the energy to do the simplest tasks such as putting away the laundry, riding bikes with your kids, or paying attention to a conversation?

Does getting dressed every morning feel like internal warfare with yourself – you put something on, criticize yourself in the mirror, and change your outfit a million times until you find something that doesn’t make you feel like a stuffed sausage?

If you feel this way or have ever felt this way, can I get a hell yeah?

If so comment below to let me know!

I struggled for a while before I figured out how to get my body back for good – but I did get it back and you can too.

The first thing you need to know is, there is WAY more to getting your body back than changing your diet and exercising.

And the second thing you need to know is that it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Diet and exercise are just two pieces of the puzzle when it comes to feeling like your best self, but they are only effective when the body is running on all cylinders.

Think of it like this…

If you owned the highest-profile performance vehicle available in the world, filled it with the highest quality fuel, and tried to take it from zero to sixty in 30 seconds with a clogged air filter, empty oil canister, imbalanced tires, and sketchy electrical system, what do you think would happen?

The car wouldn’t perform as expected, right?

This is similar to what happens when you try eating right and exercising, but get little to no results. There’s something going on underneath the hood reducing the efficacy of your efforts.

In this week’s video and blog, I want to help you understand what is potentially going on underneath your hood so you can get your body back for good.

Have you ever caught yourself staring in the mirror, wondering how you got here?


…where did all the weight come from?

… is everyone else noticing the circles under your eyes?

…how are you going to make it through all your meetings today?

…what would happen if you just went back to bed and hid under the covers?

You see, so many others have felt this way too, myself included, but we have also found a way to get their bodies back for good with the right lab testing and guidance.

What you’re experiencing did not happen overnight. Feeling out of place in your body is something that has occurred over time amongst the shuffle of work, kids, responsibilities, travel, stress, and anything else going on in your life.

Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin happens when…

  • Your hormone system goes haywire
  • Your immune system gets weak
  • Your digestive system is dysfunctional
  • Your detoxification system doesn’t work
  • Your energy system gets slowed down
  • And your nervous system sends mixed signals

In order to get your body back for good, you’ve got to get all of the systems of the body running right, just like a high-profile performance vehicle.

If your expensive, high-profile performance car wasn’t running right, what would you do?

You would take it to the best specialist around for a thorough evaluation that would include a variety of diagnostic tests to check every aspect of the engine, fuel lines, tires, pumps, and more.

To get your body back for good, you’ll want to do the same thing so you can understand what is going on underneath the hood; what’s happening with your hormones, immune, digestion, detoxification, energy, and nervous system so you’ll know exactly what steps to take to restore function and feel your best again.

Here’s the caveat though…

Running typical blood tests with your general practitioner, or even some specialists won’t get you the answers you’re looking for.

In order to REALLY see how your body is functioning, you’re going to need to run functional lab tests that provide deeper insights about function!

The good news is, these functional lab tests are super easy to do. Most of them are urine, saliva, and stool-based, making it convenient for you to do them in the comfort of your own home.

And when working with the right health expert (like me!) you can use the data from these lab tests to guide:

  • What foods are right for your body
  • How much sleep you need and when
  • What type of exercise will get you the best results
  • Which stress-reducing tools would be most effective for you
  • And what toxins or other environmental factors you should minimize to boost your health

To get all of your body systems running right to operate at your highest potential!

Now doesn’t that sound pretty straightforward?

Instead of guessing about what you should be doing to feel good in your body again.

Using the data from functional lab tests to guide recommendations for diet, rest, exercise, stress reduction, supplementation, and toxin removal is exactly how clients of mine such as…

…Leslie, lost over 20 lbs in 6 months bringing her back to pre-college weight and has an abundance of energy all day long…

…Kristine got rid of stubborn excess pounds, daily pain, sugar cravings, and was able to stabilize her energy levels

…Jene, was finally able to control her Muscular Sclerosis symptoms naturally and can now keep up with her grandson…

…David, lost 40lbs without engaging in a structured workout routine and is able to sleep through the night…

Running functional lab tests is also what gave me the insights to get my energy back, get my weight under control, clear up my skin, and think clearly again when I wasn’t getting the results I wanted from diet and exercise, or my doctors.

Running these types of lab tests is what has helped so many of my clients uncover hidden healing opportunities, such as:

  • Estrogen dominance
  • Insulin resistance
  • Cortisol dysfunction
  • Liver congestion
  • Poor thyroid function
  • And intestinal parasites, bacteria, and yeast overgrowth

These things were standing in their way of feeling like their best selves despite their diet and exercise efforts.

With the right lab tests and resources, it is possible to feel good in your body and like yourself again!

Don’t you want to feel like yourself again?

How many times have you said out loud or in your head, “I just want to feel like myself again?”

I remember waking up every morning wanting to feel like myself again so clearly….

…wanting to bounce out of bed instead of dragging myself to the coffee pot
…wanting to feel comfortable in my own body and clothes
…wanting to be free of severe seasonal allergies and able to think clearly
…wanting to not have to work so hard to maintain my weight
…wanting the acne to disappear from my face
…wanting the weird hormonal stuff to just go away
…simply wanting to feel my best so I could live life to the fullest

If you wish you could feel like yourself again, I’m here to tell you it is possible.  With the right tools and resources, you can find the missing pieces to your health puzzle and get back to feeling like yourself again, or for the very first time.

I’m living proof. I’ve done it, and have helped so many of my clients do the same thing too.

I bet you know something deeper is going on with your body, but it feels like no one is listening to what you have to say.

You’ve probably seen specialist after specialist and been recommended a laundry list of supplements, medications, and therapies but nothing has really helped you get YOU back.

You understand there’s a place for specialists and medications, but you think there’s a better way to get your health and self back so you can enjoy your life to the fullest.

You crave answers like a kid craves candy (and you probably crave foods too for unexplained or uncontrollable reasons!).

Am I right?

I’ve been there; I’ve been told my blood work looked normal even when I didn’t feel that way, or that my hormone issues were a part of aging when I knew better.

I was searching for answers that no one else could seem to give me.

In this week’s video and blog, I’m going to help you find the missing pieces of your health puzzle and get real answers so you can get back to feeling like yourself again (or for the very first time).


What you need is a new way of looking at your health, one that focuses on education not medication, and then you’ll have the keys to unlock the answers you’ve been searching for.

Here are the 3 exact steps I took and that I guide my clients through to boost energy, balance hormones, achieve weight goals, and overcome just about any other health issues that might be ailing you.

#1 – Figure out what foods are right for your body so it can function at its potential.
You are unique and therefore your diet should be too.  What works for one person won’t necessarily work for you and yet you’re trying to fit yourself into a specific framework with most dietary approaches.

There’s a difference between eating healthy and eating right for your body. Eating right for your body may include healthy foods, but not every healthy food is right for your body.

So how do you figure out what is right for your body?

You can do this by testing to see which foods your body responds best to, and then dialing in your macronutrient (protein, carb, and fat) ratios.

This will instantly boost your energy, reduce bloating, and provide the nutrients your body needs to function at its potential.  When I discovered what foods were right for my body, I instantly started feeling more like myself again.

#2 – Find the missing pieces and restore balance to all body systems.
The body is a complex network of systems, each doing an important job that the other systems depend on.  When one system goes down, they are all affected.

Functional lab testing will help you find the missing pieces so you can see what systems of the body are out of balance and how they are impacting each other, revealing your healing opportunities!  These are NOT your typical blood tests.  They are usually saliva, urine, and stool-based to show the physiological aspects of the body and how it’s working, or not working.

Functional lab tests will take a deeper look at your hormones, immune, digestion, detoxification, energy, and nervous system. In turn, this data will guide recommendations for for right diet, rest, exercise, supplementation, stress reduction, and toxin removal you need to feel your best.

#3 – Tune into your body and give it what it needs to feel your best all the time.
Your body holds all of the answers you need, and it always has, but we’ve been conditioned to disconnect from our bodies and to search externally for solutions. When something doesn’t feel right in your body, it’s your body asking you to pay attention, to tune into what it’s trying to tell you. When you do, you’ll know what to do to feel your best all the time.

Have you ever noticed that when you have a stressful day you experience the following: your stomach gets upset, you experience joint pain, you can’t sleep, or your skin breaks out?

Or when you eat certain things, your body reacts in some way?

This is your body talking to you, telling you to pay attention to something.

For a long time, I dealt with and ignored joint pain, severe seasonal allergies, weight struggles, migraines, cyclical breast tenderness, fatigue, and much more.

Hindsight is always 20/20 though. Looking back, I can clearly see that these symptoms were my body’s way of waving the red flag to get my attention and let me know something was wrong.

We’ve become accustomed to accepting things that are common as normal, but just because something is common does NOT mean it’s normal.

Now if my body feels “off” in any kind of way, I tune it; check to see what it needs, and give it just that.

This could mean eating something differently, canceling obligations to rest, getting some fresh air, doing meditation, or simply drinking some water.  Whatever my body needs, I’ve got its back, and it’s got mine.

The health and aging concerns you are facing today are not your destiny.  They are an accumulation of things that have happened over your lifetime which have slowly chipped away at that “feel good” feeling until you barely recognize yourself anymore.

With these 3 steps, you can unravel the doings of time and reveal the REAL YOU, and I’m here to help you do it!

When was the last time you sat down and did nothing? I mean, literally did nothing – just enjoyed the sun on your face, the cool breeze, listened to the birds chirping, and let all of your thoughts just drift away?

It’s HARD for me to sit still, but after realizing years ago that my busy Type-A ways were part of what drove my energy into the ground and weight up, I have progressively worked towards allowing myself to take more time off not only for health benefits but also for professional ones. ⁣

Dr. Ben Hardy and Dan Sullivan’s 10x is Easier Than 2x book inspired me to finally bite the bullet and take a semi-sabbatical for July with the intention to…⁣

  • Have more space to just BE⁣
  • Do only deep focus work to 10x my health and biz⁣
  • Rest & restore all parts of me to be my best physically, personally, and professionally ⁣

After taking a month off, I feel AMAZING physically, mentally, and professionally!

We underestimate the impact always having “to do something” has on our health.

Being in constant movement, or always doing something, triggers the body’s stress response without us even realizing it.

The American Medical Association once stated that stress is the basic cause of more than 60 percent of all human illnesses and diseases.

This study even notes the correlation between stress, weight, and other health issues…
(paraphrased to highlight key takeaways)

“The relationship between stress and illness is complex…chronic stress has a significant effect on the immune system that ultimately manifests an illness….Stress increases the risk for diabetes mellitus…since psychological stress alters insulin needs….Stress also alters the acid concentration in the stomach, which can lead to peptic ulcers, stress ulcers, or ulcerative colitis. Chronic stress can also lead to plaque buildup in the arteries (atherosclerosis)…The correlation between stressful life events and psychiatric illness is stronger than the correlation with medical or physical illness…recent studies found a link between stress, tumor development, and suppression of natural killer (NK) cells, which is actively involved in preventing metastasis and destroying small metastases”

From the moment we get up, we are constantly moving, always doing something and soliciting a stress response or pattern…

Checking email and texts first thing in the morning then every five minutes.
Rushing to get ready for work and the kids to school.
Back-to-back meetings, appointments, or errands to run.
Multi-tasking at stop lights and in traffic on our way home.
Cleaning the house, doing yard work, and marking off our mile-high list of responsibilities.

The to-do list that keeps us going is never-ending. And I don’t know about you, but it seems like the older I get, the more responsibilities and commitments I have.

As I like to tell my clients all the time, “You don’t work in an emergency room. No one is going to die if you don’t respond to that email or text, empty the dishwasher before bed, or don’t pick up your dry cleaning today.”

Learning to live a slower-paced life is what will heal us all.

In this week’s video and blog, I dive into more detail about how a fast-paced life impacts your body and why slowing down will help you shed pounds and boost your energy!

The truth is, your body can only heal in a relaxed state.

And contrary to what we’ve been conditioned to think, you have to get healthy to drop pounds and boost energy, not the other way around.

If you struggle with energy and/or to lose weight despite your “healthy habits” it’s because there are more pieces to your health puzzle waiting to be uncovered.

My Type-A ways used to run the show: running from task to task, constantly on the go, getting high by checking things off my to-do list. I never slowed down. That was until I realized just how much damage my fast-paced life was doing to my health.

A lot of us live in a fight-or-flight-stressed state all of the time, whether we recognize it or not, simply because of our modern fast-paced world. In this state, all of our energy is diverted outward for quick thinking and quick moving, instead of internally for healing, weight loss, and energy.

When in a rested state, our energy is focused inward on digestion and healing.

These biological responses are quite brilliant if you think about…

The classic textbook example of this is to imagine being chased by a lion.  Your body’s brilliant fight or flight response would act quickly to send all resources and blood flow to your arms and legs for running and to your brain for quick thinking.

Although we do not face lions in our typical day, on a biological level our body does not know the difference between a lion chasing you and the sense of urgency you feel to respond to email, the stress of traffic or your job, and the constant worrying about life’s daily responsibilities.

This consistent state of fight or flight triggers the body to release the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol not only responds to stress but it also regulates inflammation (the root of all disease), blood sugar levels, and sleep cycles and plays a major role in balancing the thyroid and many other bodily functions.

Even low-grade stress triggers the fight-or-flight response and the output of cortisol. Over time, this constant output of cortisol creates imbalances in the other body systems that it controls, in addition to taking a toll on other hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and thyroid.

Aside from cortisol and overall hormone dysregulation from constant low (or high) grade stress, the fight or flight response also impacts your digestive health.

Beneficial and bad bacteria in the gut respond to stress by creating something called biofilm.  The accumulation of biofilm can alter the internal environment of the gut, contributing to internal toxicity, inflammation, and leaky gut.

Alternatively, when we are in a rested state, the body is able to focus its resources on healing, digesting food, and nutrient delivery for cellular functions which all help to promote weight loss and more energy!

With this in mind, I’m continuously looking for ways to slow down in life to allow my body to heal in order to maintain my ideal health and weight and feel like my best self.

Here are examples of simple steps you can take to slow down and allow healing to happen:

  • Technology Breaks: Put all devices on do-not-disturb from 7am to 7pm.
  • Deep Breathing: This flips the body switch from a stressed to a relaxed mode.
  • Sit Outside: Take 5 minutes to sit outside and just be one with nature.
  • Politely Decline: Be mindful of how much is on your plate and polite decline or ask for help.

It’s common to feel guilty about taking time and space for yourself, but we actually show up better in the world when we do.

When we invest in slowing down, more healing happens, lending us the ability to be more productive in life instead of being slowed down by low energy, weight, and illness, so we can be more present for our family, friends, and loved ones.

Even though I actively try to practice a slower-paced life, I still get that sense of urgency bubbling up from time to time. But I can quickly diffuse it by breathing deeply or stepping away from the “busyness” of what I’m doing and resetting my mindset around the priority to heal and support my body.

I challenge you this week to look for where you can add more rest, even if it’s only for 5 minutes, and where you can slow down in your life to allow the healing to happen.

Hair loss solutions [encore weekend]

Hair loss summit - Adrenal Fatigue Leaky gut Thyroid Jenn Malecha

Did you know that there is a huge connection between your digestive health and your hair quality?

Yet most people are told or think their hair struggles are related to genetics or other health issues out of their control.

But this simply isn’t true.

Genetics was not related to the hair loss I experienced years ago. 

Yes, there might be a genetic component at play, but the study of epigenetics has shown us that our lifestyle choices actually dictate the expression of genes.

Women who experience temporary hair loss after childbirth are great examples of how changes in hair can be related to metabolic shifts in the body.

And if your hair challenges are related to a health condition, then what you should know is that inflammation is at the root of all health issues. 

Therefore, healthy hair growth begins from the inside out and is hugely dependent on good digestive health. In fact, digestive problems often show up externally as skin irritation, breakouts, and hair loss.

Your digestive system is essential for breaking food down into usable nutrients for bodily functions, and so gut health has a significant impact on your overall well-being, including your hair health.

Digestive problems such as constipation, bloating, loose stools, and indigestion can all be related to hair loss, dry itchy scalp, dandruff, overly oily hair… and even more severe issues down the line if left unchecked.

These are all ways your body could be telling you that something out of balance in your body needs to be addressed.

Even if your hair issues correlate with a thyroid condition, which is very common, the health of your digestive system plays a major role in the expression of BOTH of these health challenges. 

Digestive health is just ONE piece of your health and hair pizzle. 

Different people experience different types of hair loss that require different methods to resolve them.

For some people, the answer might be as simple as giving the body extra nutritional support…

For others, it could mean addressing inflammation, food sensitivities, hormone imbalances, AND gut dysfunction…

Unfortunately, the common treatment options for hair loss can be as devastating as losing your hair. Most are costly, ineffective, and don’t produce long-term results. 

So before you commit to lifelong medications, pricey painful procedures, or expensive hair products, learn how to determine your type of hair loss and why (and how!) you must address it ASAP.

To help you do this, my dear friend and fellow Functional Health Professional, Julie Olson is hosting an encore of her summit this weekend…Healthy Body, Healthy Hair: The Truth About Hair Loss.


This weekend, you can access over 45 expert talks revealing the latest scientific research on resolving hair loss, sharing comprehensive and long-lasting approaches that don’t rely on lifelong medications, painful treatments, or expensive hair products that only provide temporary solutions.

Hair loss confessions and solutions…

Losing your hair is never fun; not for men or women.

Your hair is part of your identity so it’s not an easy thing to lose. It’s what makes you look like who you are. It’s part of how you identify with yourself in the mirror and even how others identify you.

It gives you confidence, makes you feel sexy, attractive and good about yourself. Even if baldness is your thing, it still defines you.

So when my hair started falling out a few years ago, I was in denial.

My hair has been a treasured part of me since I can remember. As a little girl, I loved styling it my own way, and I’ve never had the guts to cut it any shorter than my shoulders because I love my luscious locks.

But for some reason when my typical hair shedding increased, I shrugged it off and made excuses for it…

It was because of the change in seasons
I went too many days without washing my hair
I wasn’t brushing it enough
I was working more and under more stress

You know, the usual things.

I just kept thinking, “if I just give it time, it will stop.”

As the months went by, and my hair continued to clog up the shower drain in larger quantities than I had ever seen before, I started to question what my body might actually be trying to tell me.

Because hair loss might be common, that doesn’t mean it’s normal.

I’ve had countless clients who have experienced hair loss due to thyroid disorders, autoimmune conditions, stress, nutrient deficiencies, and more.

There are many types of hair loss and over 50 root causes, many of which go overlooked by doctors.

Many people facing hair loss suffer in silence, with feelings that can make it difficult to seek help because they are embarrassed or ashamed to admit that they are experiencing hair loss.

But the truth is, hair loss is not a sign of weakness or a lack of self-care…

Some of the most common causes of hair loss are:

  • When thyroid hormone T3 is low
  • Changes in estrogen and progesterone
  • Alopecia (an autoimmune condition) is activated
  • Vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies
  • An increase in mental, physical or emotional stress
  • Toxic exposures such as mold and heavy metals
  • Drastic changes to your diet
  • Low-quality or toxic hair products
  • Poor circulation

The quality of your hair is a measurement of your health.

Telogen Effluvium was the official diagnosis of my hair loss, which is a condition that can be triggered by a variety of things, such as drastic changes in diet, deficiencies, toxins and low-quality hair products.

Thankfully, with the right tools and resources, I was able to turn my hair loss around and get my luscious locks back again.

I’m sharing my secrets to personally stopping hair loss and helping others do the same as a speaker at the upcoming Healthy Body, Healthy Hair Summit.

My dear friend and fellow Functional Health Professional, Julie Olson is hosting this summit to reveal the latest scientific research on resolving hair loss, with over 45 experts sharing a comprehensive and long-lasting approach that doesn’t rely on lifelong medications, painful treatments, or expensive hair products that only provide temporary solutions.

Get a flat stomach for summer [start now]

Is your body ready for Summer?

Summer is supposed to be carefree, fun, and full of adventure!

If a little extra fluff around the middle or belly bloat has you feeling down, insecure, or uncomfortable in your own skin, then I’ve got you covered.

The Summer Solstice is just 6 weeks away, so there’s still time for you to get a flat stomach so you can feel carefree to fully enjoy all that the Summer season has to offer.

And it doesn’t require counting calories, crash dieting, or spending hours at the gym.

Because the truth is, belly fat or bloating is NOT always from eating too much and exercising too little. In fact, calories-in versus calories-out is a dying school of thought.

I previously wrote a calorie-counting blog showing just how broken the calorie-counting and crash-dieting approaches are.  In fact, cutting calories and crash dieting can actually cause weight gain in the long term.

Everywhere you turn, you’ll see all kinds of marketing, promotional products, and advertising geared towards the calories-in versus calories-out method for weight loss and finding that flat stomach.

And yet, people still struggle to lose or regulate weight, even when they’ve tried almost every diet and exercise routine out there.

And what about the people who have stick-skinny arms and legs but are round in the middle? – What’s their story?

What’s up with that belly fat or bloating that just won’t budge?!

The accumulation of fat, particularly around the midsection, and bloating is way more complex than what is portrayed in mainstream health.

Calories and exercise actually play a small role in your overall health when all things are considered. In some cases, eating “healthy” and exercising can even contribute to fat accumulation and bloating.

The biggest contributors to pudgy tummy and bloating are:

  1. Inflammation
  2. Digestive upset
  3. Stress
  4. Toxins

Eliminating these contributors is exactly what you’ll focus on my 28-Day Cleanse Challenge that you can join right now for just $28

As I said before, calories aren’t the culprit, but the foods you’re eating and who you’re being when eating could be.

The first two steps to a flat stomach do involve your diet as it relates to inflammation and digestive upset, which alone can cause bloating but also contribute to inflammation. And step three is to explore who you’re being while eating and how that relates to a fluffy tummy.

When I work with clients, figuring out what foods are right for their body so it can function at its potential is the first thing we focus on.  And as a result, they always immediately notice a reduction in their waistline and an increase in energy.

Step #1: Avoid Inflammatory Foods.
You are unique; therefore, the foods that cause inflammation for you would be unique too.  Doing a food sensitivity test is the best way to pinpoint foods that aren’t doing you justice.

But there are some foods out there that are commonly inflammatory for everyone and should be avoided based on their molecular structure, how they interact with the body, and the load of toxins they contain.

The top inflammatory foods for everyone (regardless of sensitivity) to avoid are:

  1. Gluten
  2. Dairy
  3. Sugar
  4. Soy

Cutting these foods out completely will quickly get you one step closer to that flat stomach for summer. Keep in mind it can take a few days to get these toxic and inflammatory foods out of your system completely, but once you do you’ll definitely notice a difference!

Step #2: Eating the Right Ratios for Your Body.
Eating the wrong ratios of proteins, carbs, and fats for your body can cause digestive upset, leading to bloating and inflammation, resulting in that spare tire feel. Plus, this could be a big source of energy and sleep struggles, which doesn’t help your flat stomach game either.

When you eat in the right ratios, you can avoid digestive upset, boost your energy, and ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs to achieve your health goals.

Step #3: Reduce Stress, Especially Around Meals.
Stress, in general, can lead to a pudgy tummy, especially stress around mealtimes.

Stress of any kind triggers your body to release the hormone cortisol, and too much cortisol causes your body to deposit fat right where you don’t want it, around your midsection.

And if you’re eating while stressed, then you can’t adequately digest your food, resulting in uncomfortable belly bloat, food cravings, and low energy.

Stress de-activates the digestive system as your body’s way of conserving resources to deal with the stressor, which is a brilliant mechanism if there was a true threat trigger you needed your fight or flight response for, but even low-grade stress from watching the news, sitting in traffic, or having a tough conversation with a loved one sends your body into stress-fighting action.

The cool thing is that you can turn off the stress response to aid in digestion, banish bloating and flatten your stomach just as quickly as it was activated. All you have to do is adopt the deep, rhythmic breathing patterns of a relaxed person, and voila!

To do this…

Inhale for the count of 5 seconds
Hold for the count of 5 seconds
Exhale for the count of 7 seconds

And repeat 5-10 times. 

Not only will these three steps help you achieve a  flatter stomach before Summer, but they also support the body’s natural detoxification process to promote long-term results.

And this is EXACTLY why these steps are addressed in my 28-Day Cleanse Challenge that you can join right now for just $28 by CLICKING HERE. 

All so you can…

  • Have more energy to enjoy life and keep up with its daily demands
  • Lose those last few pounds, get trim, and stay that way
  • Blast away the belly bloat for good
  • Improve your memory, learning ability, and mood

Is estrogen dominating you?

Estrogen is a sneaky hormone often overlooked in typical blood tests, yet it commonly correlates with issues such as weight gain, sleepless nights, sugar cravings, low energy, depression and insulin resistance in both men and women, and irregular periods or intense PMS symptoms just for the ladies.

It has snuck up on me personally a few times over the years and I frequently discover that it’s at the core of my client’s weight and health woes.

Since I’m onto estrogen’s tricks, I’m giving you the inside info to make it easier for you to figure out if estrogen is getting in the way of you feeling like your best self.

Unexplained weight gain, struggling to lose weight despite your best efforts, acne, low libido, restless sleep, hot flashes, and challenges with building muscle, are just some of the common characteristics that can be seen when estrogen is dominating your body.

And Estrogen doesn’t discriminate. It’s just as much of an issue these days for both men and women. I see it all the time with clients coming through my virtual practice door.

My husband is a perfect case in point.

For the majority of his adult life, he was able to manage his body weight with the simple calories in versus calories out equation. When the scale started to tip, he simply cut back on his food intake and exercised more.

That was until estrogen took control.

The older he got, the harder it became to manage his weight through diet and exercise, and one day it just stopped working altogether. Not only was he not able to lose weight, but one day he stepped on the scale and had actually gained weight despite his efforts to work out harder and monitor his food intake.

For an engineer and scientific-minded guy, this scenario was mind-boggling. He applied the equation of calories in versus calories out and it did not produce the outcome it was supposed to.

There are a million things I could say about the broken calories in versus calories out equation (you can read more of that here), but let’s stay focused on estrogen.

There was obviously something going on behind the scenes preventing my husband from managing his weight, so we ran the right type of hormone test to collect some clues, and here is what we found…

Clue #1 A possible genetic predisposition. A few years ago, his mom had been diagnosed with the estrogen-driven type of breast cancer called ER-2. About 80% of all breast cancers are “ER-positive”, meaning the cancer cells grow in response to estrogen.

Clue #2 A Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones (DUTCH) revealed estrogen metabolites (estrone and estradiol) were very high outside the functional range, and testosterone was within range. These values can not be seen on a blood test, so they were routinely missed.

This indicated a classic case of underlying estrogen dominance that was keeping him from losing weight.

What is estrogen dominance?

In men, it’s usually determined when estrogen levels are relatively high in comparison to testosterone. Meaning testosterone levels could be normal or low, and estrogen is relatively high to whatever that number is.

In women, it’s commonly evaluated based on the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, but as with men, it can also be evaluated when comparing testosterone to estrogen.

In general, when estrogen levels are relatively high compared to other hormones, it’s not good.

I, too, was duped by estrogen dominance back in the day. My weight slowly crept up by 15 pounds over the course of 2 years, at which point I broke out with acne for the first time in my life. I had painful and heavy periods, didn’t sleep great, and couldn’t keep my emotions under control- all because estrogen had taken over.

And I’m also certain my elevated estrogen levels were part of the tipping point leading to Hashimoto’s.

The good news is that estrogen dominance doesn’t happen overnight. It’s preventable and reversible in almost any case.

In this week’s video and blog, I dive into more detail about what drives estrogen up and what actions you can take to get it back under control or keep it there.

If estrogen gets out of control, it can lead to more health issues beyond stubborn weight, acne, and pain-in-the-ass periods.

Estrogen dominance can also contribute to:

  • Hormone-driven cancers such as ER-2 breast cancer
  • Autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s
  • Yeast and bacteria overgrowth such as Candida

So how can you keep estrogen within a level playing field?

To regulate and maintain a healthy estrogen balance in the body there are two primary areas you’ll want to address…

Area #1: Sort Out Estrogen Sources.
One of the biggest reasons why estrogen is on the rise is due to a category of toxins known as Xenoestrogens. These toxins have the ability to mimic estrogen in the body or block hormone receptor sites resulting in elevated estrogen levels.  

Common sources of estrogen-promoting toxins can be found in:

  • Plastic food and water containers, or other types of containers
  • Lotions, shampoos, conditioners, deodorant, or other personal care products
  • Metal substances such as cadmium, lead, and mercury

Aim to swap out your plastic containers for glass or stainless steel, and use the EWG’s Skin Deep Database to find non-toxic personal care products.

Other estrogen-elevating sources also include:

  • Non-organic foods containing pesticides or added hormones
  • Tap water (yes, even though it’s deemed “safe”) contaminated with pesticides/toxins
  • Intestinal parasites, bacteria, and yeast that elevate toxic enzymes and trap estrogen
  • Excess body fat that absorbs, stores, and synthesizes estrogen
  • Synthetic hormones found in hormone replacement therapies and/or birth control 
  • Water-damaged buildings with mold growth
  • Constant mental or emotional stress

Some actions you can take RIGHT NOW to tackle these sources are eating organic, drinking and cooking with properly filtered water, addressing any water leaks and potential mold, and taking time to meditate or de-stress daily.

Area #2: Power Up Liver Function
The reality is, we can’t control our exposure to estrogen-driving toxins 100% of the time.  But our liver does play a major role in getting rid of excess estrogen that might be circulating in the body, and that’s something you can get behind.

By supporting liver function, you can address two essential health elements at once: eliminating toxins you’ve been exposed to that might raise estrogen levels, and getting rid of excess estrogen.

Simple daily activities to power up your liver function include:

  • Avoiding top inflammatory foods such as gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, and alcohol 
  • Eating naturally detoxifying foods such as beets, grapefruits, lemons, and dandelion
  • Drinking adequate amounts of water according to your body weight
  • Aiming to be asleep during the body’s detox window 12 am-4 am 
  • Taking a daily liver support supplement with nutrients such as milk thistle
  • Incorporating a castor oil pack and other gentle detoxing tools into your routine

These two areas are the primary focus of my 28-Day Cleanse Challenge that you can join right now for just $28

This challenge will help you boost your liver function naturally using foods and gentle cleansing methods so that you can:

  • Lose those stubborn pounds
  • Boost your energy
  • Enhance your hormones and overall health

By taking action to minimize estrogen sources and boost liver function, it’s possible to get estrogen back under control so you can lose weight, increase energy, and resolve any other elevated estrogen-related issues you might be experiencing.

Today I’m happy to report that with the proper diet and lifestyle changes, my husband has lost over 30 pounds. He easily maintains his weight while taking more days off from exercising than ever before, and he is proactively preventing a future battle with a genetic predisposition for estrogen-driven cancer.

I have also fully restored balance to my estrogen levels after dealing with mold and a long history of birth control in order to feel like myself again.

And I have helped hundreds of other people do the same with the concepts covered in my 28-Day Cleanse Challenge.
