As a health practitioner and educator, I am very cautious about talking about weight loss. Though I know that many women struggle with weight, I don't like to emphasize the weight aspect of health, or encourage any sort of particular diet to lose weight.
There is one 'style' of weight loss advice I feel good about, and our guest today, Michelle Hastie Thompson, espouses that style, so she got to come on the show!
This style involves self-love and self-awareness. I am not a proponent of if you have the right mindset, you can eat anything, but I am a proponent of making any changes to our health starts with a healthy mindset.
And this is the truest with weight loss. If we feel badly about ourselves, and mistrustful of food and our bodies, can cannot have feel good about our weight no matter how much we weigh.
Join Michelle and me as we learn:
More about our guest:
Michelle Hastie Thompson is the author of The Weight Loss Shift: Be More, Weigh Less, available on Amazon. She is also a mind -body health coach Total Body Health Solutions, and was trained at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating.
She speaks about the struggle with weight from her own experience of being obsessed with exercise and calorie counting, and gaining weight nonetheless. After she got injured and was laid out on the couch doing nothing, she lost weight. Confused and intrigued, she started to research.

I was honored to interview Dr. Allan Warshowsky, author of Healing Fibroids: A Doctor’s Guide to a Natural Cure. Dr. Allan is a pioneer in progressive and integrative care for women's health, doing it long before it was popular, and out of frustration that he couldn't get results for his patients with conventional care.
With his wife Priscilla, he now runs a small wellness practice in Rye, NY, and sees clients from all over the world.
Dr. Allan tells us that 30-70% of women get fibroids, and he estimates that 80% of fibroid surgeries could be avoided.
His approach includes:
"Being in the moment is the only time to heal and have joy."

Dr. Laura Brayton, DC is definitely an expert on holistic care for pregnancy and children, so I'm glad to have her here to answer some of the questions I commonly get from women.

Well, this show is a little different. It's just me talking about me, from before I was conceived to now. I talk about how I was raised and how it shaped me. I talk about some of my struggles in health and business, and how I've overcome them (mostly!)
My business mentor challenged me to show more of my personality and tell more of my story, so I figured this was a place to start!
I hope you can find some things in my story that are relatable or helpful for your life and health.
