PODCAST: What you need to know before you supplement with zinc

In this podcast episode, I'm zeroing in on zinc and why you don’t want to just blindly supplement with it. I’ve kept my mouth shut long enough. As I’ve watched all the health recs in holistic circles over this past year, I’ve internally cringed a lot at posts that are DECLARATIVE about what nutrients you need to fight the C word or ‘boost your immune system’.

Let me explain why…

Holistically speaking, you and everyone else are very different in  your current biochemistry
While you may be human and certain nutrients need to be on board for certain things
You are also a complex holistic piece of art who cannot be ‘treated’ like anyone else.

Since zinc has come into the spotlight quite a bit lately, I'm here to give you some insight before you go out and just start taking it blindly.

I have worked with hundreds and hundreds of people (mostly women then kids some men) and observed how zinc can be quite tricky to navigate.

Yes zinc...

PODCAST: Your brain on copper

In this episode, I'm continuing on with my series about copper and mineral burnout and how it impacts your health. Specifically, I discuss (albeit briefly) the psychological and emotional effects of excess unbound copper. When copper builds up and is not bound for use, it gets stored in various organs. The liver is the first place, but once the liver can't hold any more it begins to build up in the brain.

Excessive levels in the brain lead to depression, anxiety and eventually neurotransmitter imbalances. So if you do not understand this downstream affect of mineral burnout, you'll likely only take stabs at your health with a 'bandaid' approach instead of getting to the root which is assessing your own biochemistry in a holistic manner.

I highly recommend going back and listening to episodes 18 (HERE),19 (HERE) and 20 (HERE) first.

PODCAST: #1 Mineral Imbalance Leading to Burnout

In this episode, I shared how 1 key mineral in excess for the past 50 years has become a prevalent issue leading to burnout.

After recovering from my own burnout and helping well over 1000 women and practitioners - I have seen copper excess and imbalance be a leading cause. I shared how this has become the case, even though most other health circles are not talking about it. I also share how this imbalance affects your health so you can become aware of it.

Burnout is not who you are or how you should feel and exist. You are meant to be a master full of vitality living in your true genius. Getting your minerals balanced will be a big key to facilitating you being able to fully be YOU.

How to get magnesium right from the start

*Listen to the podcast episode of this post right HERE.

Magnesium. I could say it's my favorite mineral. It's the mineral that brought me back to life as well as to this amazing work I get to do. It's truly magical to me.

It's power is profound and deep. It's not just something to dabble with. If you want the fullest effect of this magical mineral, you have to dive deep.

If you don’t get magnesium right you get a lot of other things wrong, so let’s get it right from the start.

I spent years not getting it right dabbling, trying to intellectualize and then also feel my way through implementing it.

The first step for me was; I was DESPERATE for relief to change my life and health. My anxiety, insomnia and muscle tension was out of this world. As a single mom with four young kids I needed massive relief from all of those things and fast!

The second step was; voraciously consuming every morsel of information on magnesium as I possibly could. Imagine me as ravenous and...

How I got started with HTMA in my practice

I can still remember when I was pretty green as a nutritional therapy practitioner. No mentor. No biz coach. No functional testing under my belt.

Listen to the podcast version of this post- Episode #45 : Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 

I often felt like I needed more support and more insight. The truth is, I was already knowledgeable enough to help people and had a lot to offer the world.  However, I felt I lacked experience and wasn’t clear on what was possible for me as a practitioner.

I had a DEEP desire to learn more and my top desire was to get my own hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) done after reading some amazing things about this test. Not to mention, my intuition told me minerals were going to be a key player in my own healing as well as for others.

The problem was,  I had an avoidant relationship with giving myself what I needed.
I procrastinated, pushed it away and always said to myself "someday I will get to...

How To Get Sparked Back To Life with the Magic of Minerals

It was the fall of 2014, just over 5 years after I had officially become a single mom. I had been trying to get my business off the ground and running, while dealing with the aftermath of a messy divorce and PTSD. I was beyond burned out.

In spite of all my best efforts to clean up my health, I was still struggling with exhaustion. I found myself crashing down after every single stressful event in my life. I was barely surviving. While I had come a long way in my health during those 5 years, it was hard to fully recover and stay steady; in my energy, mood, emotions.

I was so depleted that the stress would pile up and impact my physical health in extreme ways. Like the time, I bent over to pick up a sock in my bedroom and threw my back out and it took 4 other adults to step in for almost a week to help me manage my kids and household. Then there was the time, I had a mini panic attack while taking a bath that induced an asthma attack and I had to call an ambulance.

I was beyond...
