Our guest this week is Dr. Ann Shippy, MD, and we talk about mold toxicity and her approach to treating it.
Dr. Shippy is a former Chemical Engineer at IBM. She got sick and became frustrated that traditional medicine wasn't able to solve her health ailments. She sought possibilities on how to heal her body and decided to go to Medical school.
She attended University of Texas Medical School and now has a thriving practice in Austin, Texas. She combines traditional medicine testing and functional testing to treat her patients.
In this interview we talk about:
Dr Shippy's educational background:

I had a really amazing conversation with author and addiction counselor, Roy Nelson. Roy came from humble and violent beginnings. He joined the military and married at a young age. Though he went on to have success in business, he was plagued by phobias, panic attacks and disordered eating.
He sought out help from psychologists to no avail. He finally had a breakdown/ breakthrough that gave him the realization that the source of his pain and suffering was feeling a separation from spirit.
For the next many years he sought out teachers and resources that help him reconnect with spirit. He found that when this connection was intact, disordered behaviors fell away. Eventually people started coming to Roy and asking for help. He has spent the last 30 years helping others to overcome their own addictions.
"Disordered thinking leads to disordered living which leads to disordered eating." Roy Nelson
Even if you don't suffer from disordered eating or addictions, I think you will enjoy this interview.
"This episode is really about the deep underlying thing that causes pain and fear in our lives." Bridgit Danner
Roy shares some things you can start to do right away to quiet your own anxieties.

Nanci Tunley was already trained in Pilates, nutrition and functional medicine, but she felt like something was still missing from her practice. She found the missing link in transformation coaching. She uses this tool to help women overcome their blocks to reach their health goals.
In this interview, we cover:
On the call I got to pin Nanci down and have her give the steps to transformation. Here's what she came up with:

You are in for a treat with this interview with Dr. Carrie Jones! Dr. Jones is a naturopathic physician who specializes in women's health. She currently works as the full-time medical director for Precision Analytical, Inc, makers of the DUTCH test.
You have heard me sing the praises of the DUTCH test on a past episode with functional medical practitioner, Ann Melin. DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test of Comprehensive Hormones. I really like this test because it is a great way to measure adrenal function, female hormone status and detox capacity.
Dr. Jones has looked at many thousands of these tests, and she recaps the common patterns she sees on this episode. She also talks about why and when to take such a test.
Finally, she dishes on all her favorite herbs and supplements for female hormonal complaints. We put this together in a handy sheet for you. You can get a copy by using the button below:

Our guest Cate Stillman of yogahealer.com explains how modern life tends to create imbalance. When we are disconnected from the Earth and its rhythms, or disconnected from our communities or our values, symptoms can develop.
Though she had studied advanced Ayurvedic principles and yoga, Cate observed that each of her students and clients needed some basic habits in place if they were to heal. Cate has worked with thousands of women and men to help them develop the ten habits needed to thrive.
She developed a book and program called Body Thrive, and we discuss two of the principles from the book here today.
I love these two practices because they are not commonly discussed or revered in our culture, and they are 'hidden gems' to create health.
Today we discuss the importance of:
