Show Summary: "You can't force children to eat anything, but you can choose what foods are being put in front of them."
Teaching children how to eat healthy food is a challenge for parents of every generation. And today, we are exposed to more and more junk food, making us lose our healthy boundaries with our kids. We succumb to whatever they want to eat, which leads to long-term ramifications, like getting sick or getting different kinds of autoimmune diseases at significantly younger ages.
So today, we have Mariah Sage, a family coach who helps families set up systems that support their dynamics to create more ease and flow in the family unit. She helps families honor, navigate, and understand each other gently. Her goal is to help parents teach and train their children to make healthy food choices at the earliest age possible.
Listen to the episode and discover how to make positive changes in our kids' food approach. Let's make...

Show Summary: “If you're dealing with infertility, you probably have some form of PTSD, and you got to take care of yourself. You got to see where your triggers are.”
In this episode, we're so happy to share with you the story of Katie Vaal, a member of the Gutsy Health Program who is now on her way to being a self-healing champion. Katie had infertility and the early signs started when she was young. When she had her first period, the bleeding didn't stop, and she thought it was normal. Together with her mom, they visited an OBGYN, and the solution given to her was to go on birth control to help regulate her period.
Katie was on birth control for 13 years. And when she got married, she decided to stop it, which prevented her from having a period, resulting in no pregnancy.

Show Summary: “Every cell in your body has fat, your nerves, and brain. Your brain is 60% fat; that's why fat is crucial for everything.”
Cholesterol is the backbone you need to make all of your sex hormones. Every cell in your body has a phospholipid membrane that is made up of fat. That's why fats are so healthy and essential. But many started to fear consuming fats because of the epidemiological research done by Ancel Keys back in the 50s and 60s that demonized fats and said people who eat high fat die younger. But sadly, epidemiological studies are unreliable.
People who take their vitamins on an empty stomach in the morning do not absorb vitamins A, D, E, and K without fats. Fat-soluble vitamins are delivered to damaged tissues in your body to heal & repair and to have healthy neural tissue and brain function. This is why lower total cholesterol...
Show Summary: “Our real work is to teach our kids to trust themselves.”
Human beings develop their belief systems and formulate how they see the world primarily by seven years old. That's why our upbringing greatly influences our perspectives in different life situations. Childhood experiences play a significant role in how we view things as an adult.
Therefore, we must teach our kids and be with them as they process various emotions triggered by several events. We must show them how to trust themselves and be creative in communicating positive possibilities whenever they feel broken and sad. Be their guide and empower them with the view of curiosity so that you can train them to steer clear from limiting beliefs unconsciously.
Listen closely to this episode as Britt Lefkoe, an amazing business and personal development coach, shares multiple...

Show Summary: “When you know yourself, that's where you can find your medicine.”
Do you always feel like eating ice cream when you're alone at home?
Do you long for salty foods when you are stressed?
Do your cravings always show up?
If your answer is YES, it's OK. Many of Gina's clients experience that a lot. Even if they have meal plans to follow, their cravings always show up like a balloon that keeps coming up from underwater, and no matter how hard you push it down, it pops back up again.
Interestingly, cravings are also linked to the inability to experience emotions like boredom, sadness, and loneliness. If you find yourself munching sweets in the middle of the night, even if you're not hungry, it could be that there is an unprocessed emotion deep within you that you have to address.
But as always, Gina and Juanique discuss some handy and easy steps to start conquering...
“Stop bringing in chemicals that are harmful to you and your family's health. Your home should be clean and safe because it is your SANCTUARY.”
Your home is your safest place. That's where you rest, eat healthy and fun foods, spend time and build dreams with your loved ones.
