128: The Vagina Monologues - Fertility Awareness Method & Period Health
What exactly is the fertility awareness method? Do you still find it confusing to track your cycle? Understand your cycle better and dive into all things vagina health with certified fertility awareness educator and holistic reproductive health practitioner Lisa Hendrickson-Jack. You can find all the info and links about this episode at Topics Discussed in this Episode: * The birth control pill, its side effects, and the alternatives that you should consider * Cycle health and ovulation * Common health problems with the menstrual cycle and what to look out for * Cervical mucus and cervix positioning * The fertility awareness method * The factors that might affect your temperature reading * Ovulation predictor kits * Some nutrition and lifestyle strategies that you can implement to optimize your cycle Key Takeaways: * With the birth control pill, there are issues with how women have not been informed or not been given the full picture of it. About half of the women, within a year of starting the pill, come off of it because of the side effects. * The pill is associated with a whole host of side effects, the most common of which are depression, anxiety, and low libido. * For a certain percentage of women, the pill contributes to painful sex, the thinning of the labia, the vaginal opening, and even the shrinkage of the clitoris. * The pill is known to deplete a significant number of nutrients including B vitamins. * Studies have shown that adolescent girls who are on hormonal birth control are much more likely to also be on antidepressants. * The ovulation predictor kit doesn’t confirm that you ovulated. What it does is measure a luteinizing hormone, and the strips are programmed with different thresholds. Action Steps: * Consider getting off the pill if you’re on it and find an alternative. * Take it into your own hands to learn about your body, and take the responsibility to pass that on to women. * Make sure you’re not undereating. Start with 3 square meals a day with a good balance of protein, fat, and low glycemic carbohydrates. * Reduce your chemical exposure. * Lisa said: “For many women, learning to chart the menstrual cycle and understanding how it changes in relation to overall health makes it a fantastic biomarker to pay attention to.” “The pill is central to feminism. It’s like the symbol of feminism because of what it represents. It represents women being able to take charge of their fertility.” Thanks for listening!

Darin Olien: Our Actions Are Our Life Moving Forward - R4R 214
By now we know that the planet needs saving. There are millions of tons of human-made garbage floating in the sea, forests being burned and otherwise destroyed, and gases rising into the atmosphere multiplying the negative natural disaster effects. It’s not exactly a pretty picture. There is a lot of work to do if we want to minimize the damaging effects of climate change. It can seem overwhelming, but the scale of the task doesn’t have to discourage you. The fact is, we need all hands on deck to make a difference. The ship will go where it needs to go if we all do our part. Darin Olien has dedicated most of what he does in life to tackling this problem. He’s a nutritional guru, and an environmental activist, but you probably know him best from co-hosting Down to Earth with Zac Efron. He shared his experiences with us about being a Netflix star, and more importantly, what we can do about climate change. How to Talk About Climate Change As we are learning from the current election and shows like The Social Dilemma, we tend to hear from and talk to similarly-minded people a majority of the time. Your social media circles and likely even a lot of the people you see in person, have similar ideas to you. What does this mean? A few things to remember: First, if you speak up often, you are probably mostly speaking to the choir. We know you care about climate change, and so do we. So what? What are we going to do about it? Second, because you are mostly speaking to the choir, you don’t feel the pressure from different opinions and so your voice becomes more aggressive and there is less room for those with different priorities or beliefs to participate. Darin came across these same feelings while filming Down to Earth. He knows that if he were in charge of making the film, it would have been less conservative. Fewer people would have watched, and those that did would have been “in their pod” already. Instead, the people that watched the show didn’t expect to learn about the environment or their health because they weren’t being talked to, they were just listening in on the conversations. Consider these things as you talk more about climate change. First of all, expand your circle. We can’t keep talking to the same group of people if everyone is going to get on board. Be willing to hear different thoughts and understand some people have varying priorities. Second, be kind and play the long game. Keep friendships and be the person that your friends and family know they can go to if they want to learn more. Our actions don’t change overnight. Sometimes just knowing who they can ask climate change questions about when they start thinking about it more is the best thing you can do. How We Can Make a Change Now Opening the gates of communication is a great way to start, but posting that you care about the planet on Instagram isn’t going to be what saves it. We need big change. Really big. To be perfectly transparent, bigger than what we can do on an individual level. Making small changes in our lives is a good thing! Being aware of our consumption is important, but to make a difference we need the big players to change. Corporations have to fundamentally change. No amount of recycling is going to change the trajectory we are on. In fact, Darin told us that less than 10 percent of what we think is going to be recycled actually does. Most of it goes in the ground or a dump somewhere. Even then, consumer products aren’t the biggest contributors to global warming. So how can we change the system? There are two ways to get to the corporations. One is from policy. We need to use our vote to get the right people in office and the right policies passed. And two, we need to vote with our feet and wallets. Simply put, companies won’t make things that we don’t buy. There is hope. More and more countries, companies, and individuals are changing their ways. Many experts estimate that it is too late to avoid damage from climate change, but all that means is that the sooner we work to change, the less damage there will be. It’s important to not give up hope and to act as soon as possible. Keep learning and keep acting on what you learn. Resources: Darin’s Website Down to Earth Documentary Footprint Shakeology Tracksmith is a Boston based running clothing company that truly cares about the quality and care of their running clothes.

The Whole View, Episode 428: Quarantine Holidays
The Whole View, Episode 428: Quarantine Holidays Welcome back to episode 427 of the Whole View. (0:30) Stacy welcomes everyone to the holiday season. And reminds us that the holidays may look a little different this year. She goes on to say that this top has been at the top of her family's mind. She wanted to make sure that they share with listeners some of the ideas they're talking about for this quarantine holiday season. Stacy reminds listeners that everything in life is all about mindset. If you approach this as an opportunity for new traditions to carry forward, it can keep the holidays' magic from being completely squelched. She jokes one way to do this is to start celebrating sooner and shares she plans to put her tree up next week! She shares she is looking at this as an opportunity to add to traditions her family already has instead of focusing on what she may be missing out on. Stacy then reminds us that we're definitely not going to feel good about it if we go in with a negative mindset. Sarah loves the idea of using this as an excuse to extend the festivities (at home). She shares a story of a neighbor who has Halloween decorations of skeletons dressed up as pirates in their front yard. But for eight days, she was convinced these skeletons were dressed up as Santa-elves. She has now decided that blending Halloween and Christmas decorations is the most brilliant idea ever. Stacy takes a moment to make a shout out to anyone listening in from Canada and hopes that you had an amazing Thanksgiving. She apologizes for the off timing, seeing as both she and Sarah celebrate in the US.Butcher Box Stacy takes a minute before jumping into this week's topic to make listeners aware that Butcher Box is offering a free turkey this year. She lets listeners know that they are not sponsoring this show. But she feels it's such a great deal she wants the audience to know out it. If you sign up before November 15th, you can add a 10-14 lb, free-range turkey to your box. You can visit Butcher Box for more info! Stacy and Sarah have both taken advantage of many different grocery box services, such as Thrive Market and Hungry Harvest. Stacy adds that it's a great way to limit exposure within our communities as we continue to see increasing levels of Covid cases (which is higher than it's ever been). Sarah warns listeners that this means is the "height" of the pandemic hasn't actually happened yet. Stacy thanks Sarah for that dark moment. Stacy adds that just because we are all "over it," it doesn't mean the danger is over. She confides that she is very concerned for everyone's loved ones going into this winter gathering season. Stacy encourages listeners to review and follow the CDC recommended guidelines as they plan their holiday festivities. And to pay attention to any additional guidelines in their specific areas. She also reminds the audience that she and Sarah are not experts. They are merely sharing what they and their families have decided to do, based on the guidelines that apply. Halloween: Quarantine Holidays Sarah takes a moment to say how the traditions we're used to doing, like costume and office parties, aren't very safe this year. (10:53) So she feels it's important to talk about what we can still celebrate. Stacy shares that Halloween is her favorite holiday. And she admits that they have done very little to celebrate this year because she's been a little upset "normal Halloween" isn't happening. Every year, she holds a costume party, which is how she's met a lot of fellow paleo-people and made a lot of great friendships and connections.Stacy's Alternatives Not having this tradition this year left Stacy a little heartbroken. (12:50) But after a little research, she decided that this year, their tradition would be working through a "Halloween Movie Watchlist" with her boys, now that they're old enough. Stacy assures Sarah that not all of the movies are super-scary-horror movies. And that there are many "campy" and fun alternatives. She also jokes that there are some traditional horror films on that list that she will not be watching, leaving Matt and her oldest son to check off the list for them. Stacy also shares that she will be starting "You've Been Boo'd" today now that she's fully prepared for which neighbors she's decided to "Boo." Sarah shares a similar experience when he first moved into her house, where someone left a treat on her doorstep, rang the doorbell, and ran away. Stacy explains to listeners that it's a pay-it-forward game and is a fun, low-contact way to interact with others. She also talks about holding a Halloween Scavenger Hunt or a Candy Hunt to get the kids outside and moving around. She also recommends checking out virtual alternatives for parties and contests. Stacy also mentions that you very well may love a new idea you try out and want to continue it in future years as well. You can refer to Stacy's post for more ideas for alternative Halloween activities. Staying on Track During the Quarantine Holidays Stacy mentions that as we get closer to November, that's where we start to move away from the "fun for the kids" holidays and into gathering seasons with Thanksgiving and Christmas. (21:49) She adds that this is when we're going to be drawn comfort food while in quarantine. It becomes even harder to not give in to all that comfort food when we're not feeling our best or getting enough sleep. Stacy adds that making healthier choices is easier this year since there won't be as much pressure from family or work parties. If you don't make it or buy it, it's not in your house. Stacy suggests that whatever it is you want this year, come up with the plan now. You don't need to wait until New Year to make a resolution. And that you can decide what your holiday season will look like this year. Stacy shares that her mental health is very tied to physical activity, and that is why she started going on her daily walk. Her other workout methods weren't doing enough for her. Plus, autumn is her favorite month! So she decided to go out and find new paths through the neighborhood she doesn't normally go down. Sarah shares that she also walks for about an hour every morning, rain, or shine. She shares the secret to this habit is her high-energy dog is only well-behaved if she gets that long walk every morning.

She adds getting more sleep and giving herself a break to her acts of self-care list. Stacy reminds listeners that beating yourself up when your to-do list starts to slide. Telling yourself negative things isn't helping anything. It's important to remember this going into this holiday season because it is statistically one of the worst mental-health seasons. Adding the added stress of a global pandemic isn't doing to make anything any easier. She shares a quote that's stuck with her: "Whoever needs to hear this right now, you're staying home, and self-isolating might have saved a life. You don't know that, and you can't point to it, but you are worth congratulating yourself for making that sacrifice for others." Stacy reminds you that even when something goes unplanned, to give yourself a break and move forward. Practicing Gratitude Stacy also admits, thanks to Sarah, she's gotten back into gratitude. She jokes that she refuses to call it meditation, however. Sarah shares that her almost-eleven-year-old is the one that struggles the most with the physical isolation of Coronavirus.
