PP# 195: What You Need To Know About Pelvic Organ Prolapse with Quozette Valera
Play • 39 min

Dr. Quozette Valera (Dr. Q) is a licensed physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor dysfunction practicing in Los Angeles. Dr. Q is the creator of the comprehensive childbirth & postpartum education class: Birth & Beyond by Q, and she uses social media to spread pelvic health awareness and encourage people to make informed choices about their bodies by advocating for transparent sex education, bodily autonomy, and reproductive rights.

I've been following Dr. Q on Instagram and I love the fierce content she shares around bodily autonomy and reproductive rights. Definitely follow her on Instagram because her page is full of truth bombs!

In this episode, we talk about pelvic organ prolapse, risk factors that contribute to pelvic organ prolapse, why doing Kegels alone isn't enough, why many women don't realize they have a prolapse, how gynecological conditions like endometriosis impact your pelvic floor muscles, the foundation of bodily autonomy, and so much more!

256: How To Build Lean Muscle and Boost Your Metabolism Based on Your Menstrual Cycle, Even in Perimenopause w/ Dr. Stephanie Estima
If You Want To Build Lean Muscle and Boost Your Metabolism Based On Your Menstrual Cycle You Should: * Reset your metabolism and increase your metabolic flexibility by burning fat for fuel rather than sugar * Take ownership of your body and start listening to your intuition * Eat and train in tune with the four phases of your menstrual cycle and your lifestyle Your menstrual cycle can impact your energy, metabolism, and even your creativity. So doesn't it make sense that you could leverage the four phases of your cycle to achieve optimal health and metabolic flexibility? While your body is constantly evolving every month, there are some simple ways that you can increase your metabolic flexibility, start eating for your cycle and become more in tune with your innate intuitive bodily wisdom. Leveraging Your Cycle for Optimal Health Dr. Stephanie Estima is an expert in metabolism and body composition. She is focused on distilling strategies in nutrition, movement, and mindset to actualize human potential, longevity, and achievement. She is here today to share ways to navigate your hormones' changing landscape to treat your body right. Eating in Tune with Your Cycle Hormone imbalance, your stress response system, your menstrual cycle, and your metabolism are all deeply interconnected. The truth is, all women are born with the ability to burn fat for fuel or sugar for fuel, but we are never taught how to access the fat-burning pathway. Dr. Stephanie suggests starting there and then moving to a female ketogenic diet to introduce a nutrition plan that is in tune with your menstrual cycle. Women are designed to have different needs during each of our four phases, but no woman is the same. Once you understand your natural rhythm and how long you stay in each phase, you can customize everything from your meal plan to your workout to better serve your body. In the long run, this will make you more metabolically flexible, decrease your perceived stress, and better prepare you for the hormonal changes in your present and future. Listen to Your Body As a woman, it is so important to learn how to listen to your body signals. Dr. Stephanie and I know that every woman is like a snowflake, and you have to take the time to learn how you uniquely operate. By taking ownership of our bodies, learning how to let your intuition be your guiding light, and understanding what you need for your female physiology, you can leverage your cycle to match up with your nutritional profile and start seeing the results you have been looking for. You get to choose the way you view your thoughts, your body, and your hormones. Perimenopause, menopause, and beyond can be an incredibly exciting, sexy, and fun time if you listen to what your body is telling you and honor and adapt to the changes your body is going through. Are you ready to embrace the confidence and self-love that leads to long-lasting sexiness? Share your experience with hormones, perimenopause, or menopause with me in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “That's where sexiness comes from, is the confidence, and the self-love, and the belief that you can actually make a change if you want too.” (14:47) “You are not going to be perfect; you are perfectly imperfect.” (31:24) “All women are born with the capacity to burn sugar for fuel, and the capacity to burn fat for fuel. The problem is we never access the fat pathway.” (36:39) “You just have to learn how long you stay in each phase of your menstrual cycle if you are still in your reproductive age and then adapt to it. That’s the hallmark of a sexy, empowered woman is because she knows herself. And one of the rights of passage, if you will, as a woman, is to understand how you are uniquely different. Not only just from men, but from other women.” (43:03) “The egg doesn't run up and down the fallopian tube looking for the guy wondering if he texted you, no! She is like ‘I am here. The smart ones are going to find me. I am the queen!’” (55:05) In This Episode * How to reframe and honor the changes your body is going through in perimenopause (8:25) * Learn about the stress response of ‘tend and befriend’ that you may not have heard of before (18:36) * Tips for shifting what you eat and the way that you are eating to regain metabolic flexibility (30:30) * The importance of learning how to listen and respond to your body when she is talking to you (41:24) * Why you should start acting more like your eggs and appreciating the wisdom of your body (54:37) Resources Mentioned: Register for the Perimenopause and Menopause Relief Summit 4-Week Meal Plan Free Gift The Betty Body by Dr. Stephanie Estima Dr. Stephanie Estima Website The Estima Diet Protocol Follow Dr. Stephanie on Instagram Related Episodes: Essentially You Episode #244: How to Eat and Train According To Your Menstrual Cycle with Dr. Stephanie Estima Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative

Covid-19 Vaccine — Should You Take It
*Show Summary:* *"Vaccines are meant to stimulate your immune system."* The pandemic has been testing the mental, physical and emotional well-being of people worldwide since it started. Many felt the fear of losing their lives or their loved ones because of how dangerous it has become. Wearing masks, face shields, and social distancing are now the new norm. Restrictions are everywhere to prevent the virus from spreading and taking the lives of many. The decrease in economic growth has been felt, especially in third-world countries. But the question is, until when do we suffer from this? Now that vaccines are developed, many believe and hope that the pandemic is soon coming to an end. However, it sparks multiple reactions and emotions from different people. Some are afraid to get it, while others can't wait to be vaccinated. "Is it safe for all ages?" "Will it prevent the transmission?" "If taken, does it mean your 100 percent protected from the virus?" In this episode, Dr. Bradley Campbell of Integrated Holistic Healthcare in Wilmette, IL, and author of "Do I Have Adrenal Fatigue" book, shares his experiences with vaccines since he was a child up to the present. As a kid, he and his sister were doing a regular vaccine schedule, but they had different reactions to it, which made him more curious about its risks and benefits. However, many people in the natural community are skeptical about it, so find out what he has to say  about  the effects of vaccines. *Important Links* Gutsy Health Membership Provo Health Instagram Health Assurance Movement Instagram More about Covid-19 *Exceptional Highlight:* * It's not like they're perfectly safe and it's not like they don't do anything at all. * Doing research takes a long time to do, sometimes it takes years  or decades, it can take a full career to prove a medical point.. * Fever helps you create long term defense. *Show Highlights: * *Who is Dr. Bradley Campbell?* *Dr. Bradley 2:15* *  I went to Chiropractic and Naturopathic school and got finished with my chiropractic degree and got that from National University of Health Sciences in Lombard Illinois. *How long does the vaccine is supposed to last?* *Dr. Bradley  3:23* * Once it becomes past the tipping point where tons of people have had this thing, it's likely to become endemic, sort of like a flu or cold season, where it might last forever, or it could last for five years or 10 years before it sort of dwindles down... *His history with vaccinations Dr. Bradley 7:39 * * My family has some genetic traits, which can make us a little more susceptible to issues with detoxification, allergies and autoimmunity *The effects of the pandemic* *Dr. Bradley 38:36* * We've learned how much we need to touch people and be in real connection with people and in person. All these CEOs who are like, “Wow, we can't wait to have everybody work from home and you're going to be more productive and get more work done.” They're gonna be with their kids.

Thanks for Listening!
I've not written a blog for months. I've been moving house, had little internet connection, and been generally busy, and tired. I'm glad that this past couple of weeks I had felt like I have the time and space to start writing again, so there will be blogs to come, soon. I wanted to put something down to express my gratitude for all of you who have listened to and supported my podcast over the past three years. I didn't think that it would go anywhere, or that anyone would really listen to it. Well, you did. So thank you. I've had such support for the podcast, that I feel extremely guilty about announcing that I will not be producing any more episodes. But, as I discovered in the last 6 months or so, feeling guilty about stopping is not a good enough reason to keep going. I'd rather than stop completely than keep it going, but only publish episodes sporadically. Podcasts are a lot of work. Finding people to interview, scheduling interviews, and editing audio after interviews. If I am quick, an episode may take 6 hours start to finish (including scheduling etc), but many episodes take more like 10. It is a time thing. It's not that I don't have time. I can always make time. These days, my "free" time — time to do absolutely nothing productive at all — is increasingly precious and glorious to me. I am growing less inclined to give it up. I'm more selfish about my time — unapologetically, I enjoy that I enjoy being just me, without being the 'doing stuff' me. This 'wanting to do nothing' is actually exactly something that scared me when I had anorexia. I was scared that if I allowed myself to rest, I would always want to rest. I would forget how to be productive. My 'value' would decrease. Because when I was sick, I thought my value was in my ability to never rest, and always be productive. (Which, if you think about it, in a famine, would be about right.) The wonderful thing about being human in a brain that doesn't have anorexia any more, doesn't perceive that resources are scarce, and therefore doesn't believe that value is in productivity, is that I have the freedom to see the real value of being human. I know that sounds incredibly deep and ridiculous, but it is true. The other night, I was going to make this podcast. I had an hour or so. I was making my way up my back porch steps, and one of the puppies followed me up and "pawed" me on the leg, asking for attention. Years ago, when my value was in being productive, I either wouldn't have noticed him, or I would have noticed him, and gone inside anyway. These days, I'm more inclined to sit on the floor and play with the dogs because they asked than I am to go inside and start editing audio. Sometimes it is a puppy. Sometimes it is a horse. Sometimes it is a pattern that the wind has made in the snow that I need to stare at. Sometimes, very often, it is snuggling with Matt. I never take for granted my recovered brain. A brain that allows me to see the value in happiness, and being human. Never, ever, take it for granted. I feel blessed to have known a brain in starvation mode, if only because it allows me to know the bliss of not being there. Anyway. That's my way of saying there will be no more podcasts. Just because it is the right time to stop. I appreciate you for listening.

142: Healing Your Body with Chinese Medicine Practices, How Scars Impact Your Health & the Impact of Nutrient Deficiencies
Did you know that the scars on your body can impact your health? Find out more as holistic practitioner Scott Sommers shares about this and the healing practices in Chinese medicine. You can find all the info and links about this episode at https://holisticwellness.ca/episode142. Topics Discussed in this Episode: * How Asian medicine differs from Western medicine * How Asian and Western medicines complement each other * How scars affect the body and the type of treatment necessary to correct them * The body’s electrical system * Treating scars with light laser oil * Signs of nutritional deficiencies * The best form of testing with parasites and the best action to resolve them * Acupuncture Key Takeaways: * Eastern medicine focuses on the electrical system and the whole body. Western medicine, on the other hand, focuses on symptomatic relief. * Eastern medicine deals with the core problems using the tools of food as medicine, herbal medicine, and lifestyle changes. * When you get a scar, there’s a disconnect on your skin. And if there’s a trauma to the body, then there’s internal scarring. If we don’t restore the electrical flow through laser treatment and through oil applied to the scar itself, the brain will remain disconnected from that part of the body. * Anything that shows up in your skin, your hair, your nails, and your tongue can be a sign of nutritional deficiencies. * Basically, 99% of our problems are nutritional-based. * 80% of the population has parasites. The key symptoms are any kind of skin problems and digestive problems such as bloating, gas, and IBS. * Acupuncture is a way to activate your electrical system. Action Steps: * Check your scars and put some wheat germ oil on them. You can also have them checked by a kinesiologist. * Eat enough good fats. They are the basis of good hormones. * Exercise daily. * Consider getting an acupuncture treatment. * Get on a good nutritional program. * Implement these everyday strategies to avoid getting a parasitic infection: * Have your pets tested and make sure you give them filtered water. * Rinse and soak your vegetables in vinegar for 5 to 10 minutes. * Consume lots of garlic. Scott said: “I’ve been striving ever since, looking for answers. And I always say it’s about ancient medicine -- studying the ancient techniques -- and modern technology to get the best answers.” “Most people are like walking blocks of Swiss cheese. They have all these holes for their missing deficiencies. If you don’t fill in the holes, you’ll just never be whole.” Thanks for listening!

276-Coping with Weight Gain
Weight gain is a very sensitive, vulnerable and emotional topic for most women. The ability and willingness to openly talk about weight gain is different for each one of us. It’s estimated that by the time most women hit their 45th birthday, statistically speaking, we’ve tried 61 diets, plans, programs, detoxes, cleanses, meal plans, regime, an eating system. In an unending battle to shrink our body and, hopefully, change our life. I want to recognize that simply tuning in to listen to this episode for someone is a huge step… if this is you, I see you and welcome you. For others who have taken the journey beyond the food and unlearn diet culture, this is a much easier and light topic… I see you too, my sister, and cheer you on. Coping with weight gain Weight gain is a difficult topic, a complicated topic and a very nuanced topic. By no means this one episode is a complete resource for the normalization of weight in women. This episode is meant only to be an introduction to the topic of coping with weight gain. I’ll be speaking about one aspect that I think, as women, we must first understand and integrate in order to release the fear of weight gain. What you’ll learn listening to this episode: * Why you are not alone: recent statistics review * How patriarchy position weight gain to keep women feeling insecure * Why diet culture is so powerful, particularly for women * How to release the fear of weight gain and claim back your power Mentioned in the show: Podcast Roadmap Conquer & Thrive

Sleeping Problems and PCOS: Insomnia, struggling to get to sleep, struggling to stay asleep and what you can do about it
Sleep is one of those universal foundations of our health. If you’re not prioritising that, it can really negate all of the work you're putting in in other aspects of your healthy lifestyle, like nutrition, exercise and supplementation. If we don’t have good sleep, all of the pillars of our health crumble.  With lockdowns happening (we’re currently in a short one to ensure we don’t have a massive resurgence of COVID), I find that’s not only a great time to learn more about your health but for me, it’s an opportunity for me to really hone in on my sleep. No early morning gym sessions, no post-work catch ups with friends, no packed social calendar, so no excuses when it comes to focusing on sleep.  But sleep isn’t as simple as just making sure you’re in bed for 8hrs. It’s hard to function when you feel like hot trash as it is, then add COVID lockdowns and it’s a recipe for stress! In this week’s episode of The PCOS Nutritionist Podcast, we’re once again diving into sleep but in this episode we’re covering all things insomnia, premenstrual insomnia, struggling to get to sleep and struggling to stay asleep. I see these quite a lot in the women I work with in The PCOS Protocol - wanting to improve their sleep but struggling to fall asleep and stay asleep. I know how you feel, my partner Scott is out like a light seconds after his head hits the pillow but I don’t have as much luck. So if you’re over lying in bed trying your hardest to get to sleep (and not having much luck) or you find yourself awake at 2am wide awake and you’re like “omg! Why is my body doing this!? I’m going to be so tired tomorrow!” then you need to listen to this. Because there’s nothing worse than lying in bed not being able to sleep - whether its when you’re heading to bed or in the middle of the night - knowing that you’re going to feel like absolute trash in the morning but you. just. can’t. sleep. So, regardless of your PCOS root cause, this one’s for you! You might even want to listen to this while you prep your dinner in advance of your wind-down routine! *This episode is for you if:* * You find your ability to sleep changes with your cycle * You struggle with insomnia * You’re struggling to get to sleep at night * You find yourself waking up in the middle of night * You often find yourself waking up around 2/3am many nights * You want some more information on what you can do for a better night’s sleep *Some things we cover in this episode:* * The interaction between your stress hormones and your sleep hormones * Using light too late into the evening - and not just blue light either * Insulin, blood glucose and sleep * PMS, PMDD and sleep * Tracking patterns of your cycle and your sleep * Why sleeping pills and alcohol aren’t the answer to insomnia. *Resources and References:* * Podcast Episode 36: Can lack of sleep have a negative effect on my PCOS symptoms? * Podcast Episode 55: How to know if you have to break up with caffeine (in my case, again) * Podcast Episode 65: What booze is really doing to your PCOS symptoms (and how to balance this over the festive season) * Podcast Episode 68: All about Progesterone: why it may be low, why it’s important and how to improve your levels with Dr. Samina Mitha * 70: Why you’re still waking up feeling like hot trash after a good nights’ sleep * Book: Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker *

(237) I feel addicted to food while trying to recover with intuitive eating and making peace with food.

Grab details at PCOSandFoodPeace.com. Thank you for you supporting the Love Food Podcast! Dear Food, I know exactly when our journey began. I had an anonormally skinny ballerina body and had gained a few pounds over the summer. I knew what I had to do. My parents always did diets so I figured it was just a part of growing up. Little did I know that losing those few pounds would lead to a horrible relationship with you and an unhealthy amount of weight gain. I used to not think about you. When I was bored, you weren’t the first one I went to. You were fuel not an addiction. Never in a million years would I have thought I would be where I am now. I have drifted so far and our relationship is so weak. I hate you but love you at the same time. You control me and I cannot contain myself around you. I’m addicted. You control my thoughts and take up my whole life. The more I pull away, the more I am attracted to you. I’m not sure why I go to you. Maybe it’s my low self-esteem, or my body image issues, or my constant want and need to look like society’s beauty standards. I feel that you are an escape I have to run from my toxic thoughts about my body because no one else cares. I feel like I cannot even continue my daily life because of the hold you have on me. I hate myself because of you but I can’t stop going back to you. I’ve tried to limit you but our relationship seems to get worse and worse. You were enjoyable, now I dread you. I’m fearful of what you will do to me. I’m fearful of how far I will go with you. You used to be a natural instinct that didn’t matter to me, now I can’t go five minutes without wanting you or thinking about how you ruin me. I guess the truth is…you aren’t the problem. Its me. I abuse you. I hate myself so I become overwhelmed and run to you. I’m not sure why I go to you. It seems counterproductive, but I’m in hopes of finding out why you have such a hold on me. I am guilty after going to you. I am humiliated, even if no one else knows. All I want is a healthy relationship with you and my body so I can move on with my life.
