Do you feel like stress has become your norm? Or that you are way too busy but can't see how to reduce your load? Do you have trouble letting go of stressful events, and end up in constant anxiety?
Our guest on the podcast today is Linda Wilson, a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a hypnotherapist and an Faster Emotional Freedom technique who is based in Melbourne, Australia. She is also the author of Stress Made Easy: Peeling Women Off the Ceiling.
"It's about the degree of stress and how we interpret it."
Here's a few things you'll learn from Dr. Linda:
Under stress, blood moves away from the forefront of the brain, involved in connection, creativity, problem solving
Chronic stress effects your heart, your gut, your immune system
Weight gain, insomnia, headaches are common complaints in chronic stress
The fatigue of chronic stress can cause negative thinking and emotions
The Faster Emotional Freedom Technique, which uses the meridians of Chinese Medicine, touch, images and language to create change.

Mira and Jayson Calton are super passionate and knowledgable about micronutrients, and my podcast recording with them is a taste of the fun and adventure they've created in their lives.
Mira was a busy, super thin publicist in New York City, living the dream, except for increasing, debilitating pain. She was diagnosed with advanced osteoporosis, and advised to move home with her family and recuperate.
In her search to figure out her osteoporosis, she met Jayson Calton, a clinical nutritionist who did not specialize in osteoporosis, but agreed to dive into this project with Mira. Her osteoporosis became completely reversed, and meanwhile she and Jayson fell in love and got married.
The podcast covers the tenets of their new book, The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28 Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease.
In this episode, we talk about:
How BPA is in more places than you'd think, and how it raises your insulin levels
How adequate vitamin C can moderate your stress response
Why iron should be taken away from most other supplements
The best form of chromium (it's polynicotinate)
The most important nutrients for thyroid health
Their new book is highly educational, but also very practical. There are quizzes to find out where you might be deficient, and plans to follow (including meals for a whole month) for different health goals.

How our adrenal glands work
The difference between adrenal disorder and adrenal disease
The stages of adrenal disorder

I met Tom Malterre on a dance floor getting sweaty to hip hop music. Yup.
We were both at health conference with a party event, and there were a few of us who clearly shared a love of dancing full on, late night.
Tom is a certified Functional Medicine Practitioner through the Institute of Functional Medicine, and he holds a master's degree in Nutritional Science.
He co-authored a new book with his wife, Ali Segersten, called The Elimination Diet: Discover the Foods that are Making You Sick and Tired, and Feel Better Fast.
He and his wife have also co-authored two other books mentioned in my podcast interview with Tom:
Nourishing Meals: Healthy Gluten Free Recipes for the Whole Family
The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook: Over 300 Delicious Whole Food Recipes, including Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free and Egg Free
You can find all their books, plus The Elimination Diet support program on their site, WholeLifeNutrition.net.
On this episode of the podcast, Tom talks about:
How removing inflammatory foods eliminates symptoms throughout the body
How doing an elimination diet can be as easy as learning a dozen new recipes
How children's moods (and adults!) can be effected by foods
Why we are sensitive to foods in the first place
