Hangovers

Now that I’m a ripe 25 (read: 84), not only can I officially not hang, but I definitely can’t hang(over). To put simply: I just don’t have the time to be bed bound for the entirety of the day, wallowing at the sorry state of my head, stomach, and soul. But drinking is a pretty regular part of my social life, and I love going out to dinner and nice drinks with friends. I guess it’s rare for those in the health and wellness space

She is a cookbook author, endometriosis warrior, podcast extraordinaire, and is certified in plant based nutrition. She not only manages, but thrives with endometriosis, and even offered advice to Lena Dunham, who was also diagnosed with endo. Needless to say, I am incredibly excited to be able to host her on my blog this week. Talk about one inspiring female. Read on for the

Podcasts

I love to walk around the city and instead of using a pedometer to track my steps, I like to think of my podcast listening as a PODometer (eye roll). The ever growing list is below, included with basic descriptions. If you have any you’re loving lately, please leave suggestions in the comments below!!

Go Harvey – Online Integrative Health Service

This post is not only about my experience working with Harvey (www.goharvey.com), an online integrative and functional medicine service, but about telling my own health story. You’ll find that when working with an integrative or functional medicine doctor, the symptoms that you’re experiencing have to be taken into account with your overall health, to see the holistic, bigger picture.

Helping to Heal Concussions / TBIs Naturally

When a TBI or any brain injury occurs, the body loses and has lessened capacity at operating at best capacity. A concussive injury leads to “inflammation, cellular damage, apoptosis, membrane disruption, axonal damage, mitochondrial dysfunction, hyper or hypo metabolism and increased susceptibility to repeat injury ( 1 ). To date, there is no effective treatment for a concussion. Concussion management thus far has focused on prevention (e.g., helmets, rule changes) and the philosophy of “rest, rest, rest” allowing

FEMpowerment Fridays episode 5

As women continue to share their stories with me, it has become increasingly transparent that the experiences women face are so incredibly vast. And so incredibly hard. They are trying, heartbreaking, and emotional, but exude strength and resilience. If nothing else, I hope this series continues to inspire empathy, and to get you thinking about what would happen if you or a loved one were faced with a similar situation. I am so incredibly proud and honored that the women this week
