S2E57 - Think and Advocate Your Own Way of Healing

Feb 13, 2023
 

 

Show Summary: 

"This should be a fundamental business lesson for everyone; No matter what people say to you or promise you when they tell you not to bring a lawyer to a contract signing, don't listen. I made that mistake, and it cost me everything. It represented my lack of self-confidence in doing this on my own and my lack of self-love and boundaries.”

 

Controversy is brewing in the medical industry, and it’s time we pay attention. Finally, the lies and misinformation perpetuated by the so-called "medicinal matrix" are being exposed, thanks to the bravery of a few medical professionals speaking out.

S2E55 - Sarah Williams - Her Remarkable Healing Journey

Jan 30, 2023
 

 

Show Summary: 

"After I finished my second liver cleanse, my eczema and acne were completely gone. My hair started growing, and my energy was back. I could get out of bed in the morning and wasn't falling asleep at one o'clock anymore. At last, I could see many significant shifts happening.”

 

Motherhood can be a lonely and difficult journey, especially if societal expectations bombard women about how they should look and feel. After each childbirth, one may experience extreme fatigue, postpartum depression, chronic yeast infections, thyroid dysfunction, weight gain as well as other ailments.

 

The harsh reality is that when most mothers seek answers for various symptoms, doctors often dismiss their health issues as normal, and worse, they are not trying hard enough to lose weight. This experience can leave desperate mamas feeling isolated and frustrated, not knowing where to seek help.

 

Today, our guest is Sarah Williams, one of the...

S2E53 - Easing Menopause with Bioidentical Hormones

Jan 16, 2023
 

 

Show Summary: 

 

"About 30 years ago, a patient stomped into my office. She wanted me to pay attention because she said she was going crazy, which was a surprise. After all, this is a very successful woman who retired in her mid-40s. She was in perimenopause, so I gave her some progesterone. Three weeks later, I got a letter from her saying, 'Oh my god, I can't believe this. I'm myself again, thank you so much.' That caught my attention because this was a dramatic result. It happened with so little time."

 

Women who undergo midlife crises are often punctuated with the unpleasant effects of menopause. Aside from hot flashes, mood swings, sleeping disorders, body aches, muscle loss, osteoporosis, and incontinence can easily diminish their confidence and self-esteem.

 

At the ripe age when knowledge, experience, and wisdom are supposedly at their peak, the sudden hormone shift can cause their life to fall over the cliff. Looking at the depressing...

S2E52 - BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Jan 09, 2023
 

 

Show Summary: 

"So my sister was diagnosed with LCIS, and there were areas of concern on her breast. The doctor recommended 'watch and wait' or mastectomy, and she was in turmoil. I asked her to take progesterone hormones, and after a month, she went back for her MRI, and the abnormal cells were undetectable."

 

Conventional medicine entails treating patients already in the end stages of their diseases. However, even if this is the norm, it pays to ask if there is anything we can do to correct or arrest an illness before it becomes chronic or fatal.

 

What if we can prevent sickness? Are there destructive lifestyle habits or seismic life shifts that are worth noting? What other factors contributed to today's results? When it comes to health, these are the underlying questions that beg for answers.

 

Our guest, Sharon Miller Keller, is a nurse practitioner and gives custom consultations on female hormones at Provo Health. With a long history in...

S2E49 - The Soul and Science of Healing - Gina Worful's Story

Dec 12, 2022
 

 

Show Summary: 

"If there is anything we would have changed in our healing journey, before going into the body, we would have gone to the emotions and worked on the heart and soul first. Mindset includes being mindful, regulating your nervous system, processing your feelings, and connecting to your body."

 

As a society, we are hardwired to base our worth on our achievements. Driven daily by motivation and other people's successes, we take pride in overworking to exhaustion. Our bodies beg for pause and rest, yet we cannot sit still, even for a moment.

 

The mind, body, and soul are created to be connected. And if this connection is severed, like an engine out of alignment, it is only a matter of time before it conks out with weird, uncontrollable issues.

 

Today we feature our beloved Gutsy Podcast co-host, Gina Worful. As a certified dietitian and holder of a Master's in Human Nutrition, she narrates the story of her traumatic birth and the...

S2E47 - Enjoy Symptom-Free Periods Now

Nov 28, 2022
 

 

Show Summary: 

"Women have been lied to over and over again. It's common to assume that period symptoms are normal because everybody has them. But imagine a life where you're no longer planning around your monthly cycle. You're not falling apart, your energy is consistent, and your mood is good and stable."

 

Most women expect a dreadful Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) every month. Nausea, cramping, and migraines are just a few symptoms that female adolescents expect, and there's no other way to deal but through pain relievers and birth control pills.

 

Suffering from dramatic periods as an adolescent, she is unwilling to accept conventional medicine as the final solution. Yet, without a logical explanation from her doctor, she refused to believe this was her fate.

 

Our guest, Dr. Annie Savage, is a naturopathic physician trained in female hormones, functional endocrinology, and bio-identical hormone therapy. For her, symptom-free periods are...

S2E46 - Resetting Your System with Cryotherapy

Nov 21, 2022
 

 

 

Show Summary: 

"Cold therapy is one of the best things you can do for vagal tone. When people are chronically in fight or flight, it gets you out of that and helps you get you into parasympathetic states again.”


Despite our earnest attempts for vitality, no one is exempt from experiencing stress, depression, inflammation and other kinds of neurological disturbances.
