#84 Are Stealth Infections Wrecking Your Hormones? with Dr Jessica Peatross

#84 Are Stealth Infections Wrecking Your Hormones? with Dr Jessica Peatross

August 17, 2020

Dr Jess is a board certified internal medicine physician who trained at the University of Louisville. During this time, Dr Jess experienced what many of her patients today are suffering from-anxiety, hormonal imbalances and adrenal dysfunction.  She began to seek out real answers that got to the root cause of disease, not just for herself, but for her patients as well.  

After realizing that allopathic medicine was not the perfect fit for chronic disease solutions, Dr Jess trained in the realm of functional medicine, Gerson therapy, ozone and nutrigenomics. Her philosophy now embodies true health as being all encompassing of mind, body and spirit, which is true health. What she has learned, and wants to share with the world, is that our bodies are perfect. 90% of disease comes from lifestyle, diet and environment, which is what ultimately changes our genes, so everyone does have a chance to HEAL and reverse chronic disease.

#83 Have You Taken Your ‘Healthy Lifestyle’ Too Far? with Emma Kestler

#83 Have You Taken Your ‘Healthy Lifestyle’ Too Far? with Emma Kestler

August 10, 2020

I came to the realisation that in order to heal my gut and hormones, I had to stop controlling my food & over exercising ...

"My name is Emma Kestler and I'm a Holistic Health Coach and Reiki Practitioner based in NYC. I spent years restricting, bingeing, and following diets that promote fat loss to mold myself into an “ideal body”. I damaged my hormones and metabolism and lost my period through this cycle of restrictive eating and yo-yo dieting. I was trapped in a diet mindset and knew I would have to work through this to achieve the optimal health my body wanted to be in. I learned that there are healthy ways to reach your body goals that don’t have to involve compromising health. 

I help people build new healthy habits around food that doesn’t involve dieting, restricting, and obsessing about food so they can achieve sustainable weight loss and feel vibrant, energetic, and confident in their body and life . I empower people to become experts of their own bodies and discover what works for them, finding food freedom along the way. I educate clients on how to learn a diet neutral approach to weight loss while still realizing that body goals are okay to strive for, but going about it in a way that promotes self compassion rather than stress and shame"

#82 Important Mindset Shifts For Your Fertility Journey with Jasmine Katatikarn

August 3, 2020

Jasmine Katatikarn is a fertility warrior who struggled to have a child for six years. After multiple IUIs and her 2nd IVF, she was told that she had a less than 1% chance of having a baby and to stop trying. However, Jasmine didn’t give up.

 

Using her background as an artist, she applied an artist’s mindset to overcome her roadblocks and design a life that gave control of her fertility journey and life moving forward.  

 

As a result, she became pregnant within months of being told she had less than a 1% chance. Today, Jasmine now has two kids, both through IVF. 

Using her designer point of view and tools, Jasmine shows you how to take control of your own fertility journey as well.
