Play • 41 min

2020 has been a year like no other, and as we approach the end of the year, we’re getting ready for a holiday season like no other. There’s always a risk of getting out of your routine and losing sight of your goals during the holidays, and that’s true this year as well, even if the reasons are different. In today’s episode, Rachael and Kelsea share some strategies for keeping yourself on track and healthy during the upcoming holiday season.

Topics Discussed in Today’s Episode:

  • How the holidays will be different in 2020
  • Getting experimental with your own cooking for the holidays
  • Keeping your routine in place
  • Making sure that you get some type of movement in every day
  • Giving yourself grace when you can’t do as much as you might like
  • Remembering what you’re thankful for
  • Finding safe ways to connect with others
  • Food shaming during the holidays

Half His Size: Physical Therapist Alan Fredendall on Losing 200 Pounds and Introducing Patients to CrossFit PH179
At age 18 and finishing high school, Alan Fredendall topped the scales at over 400 pounds. Climbing a single flight of stairs to attend class on the second story of his school left him wheezing and breathless. During college, he began a weight loss journey involving body building and lots of cardio, but he hadn’t yet found a way to make sustainable, long term changes. A stent in the Army gave him the motivation he needed to maintain a healthier weight for several years, but it also left him looking forward to the day when he would get out so that he could “never exercise again.” Once Alan left the Army and went back to college to finish his exercise science degree, he continued the cycle of inconsistent exercise, yo-yo dieting and huge weight fluctuations. It wasn’t until a friend introduced him to CrossFit that he finally developed healthy habits that stuck. Although he was reluctant to start, Alan soon ramped up his attendance and quickly learned that good nutrition outside the gym helped him feel better inside the gym. He came to love being part of a tribe of individuals looking to improve themselves, and appreciates that training with CrossFit allows him to be better in activities outside the gym. Not only has Alan used CrossFit to improve his own health, he splits his time between working as a doctor of physical therapy and as a Level 2 trainer using CrossFit methodologies to help others who are in his old shoes. He often sees his clients transition from being physical therapy patients to affiliate members attending the classes he coaches. I first connected with Alan via a virtual physical therapy conference for the Institute of Clinical Excellence, and I was excited to learn more about his remarkable transformation story in this episode. We talk about the approach his friends used to encourage him to make major lifestyle changes, and how he sees CrossFit and physical therapy working together to help individuals stay functionally fit throughout their lives. You can connect with Alan via Instagram @alan.fred.dpt and the Institute of Clinical Excellence at @icephysio Related Episodes: Ep 116 - How Healing Works with Dr. Wayne Jonas Ep 132 - Healing Through Functional Movement with Dr. Amy West If you like this episode, please subscribe to Pursuing Health on iTunes and give it a rating or share your feedback on social media using the hashtag #PursuingHealth.

How To Know Which Supplements To Take When You Are TTC
Justine Altman joins us today as we’re digging into the basic supplements you need to know about if you are TTC. There is a lot of information about which supplements are right for fertility. And like most women that I speak with you are probably taking A LOT of supplements. But are these supplements optimizing or harming your fertility? And taking supplements for years and not really knowing WHY or if they are helpful...doesn’t make sense either! As you may know, we take a functional approach to fertility and while supplements are included in our customized protocols (which are based on testing) - they are only a part of the equation. Because there is no magic pill you can take that will out supplement the basics - such as diet, sleep, movement, and stress. That’s why we wanted to talk about the BASIC supplements that we DO recommend for both men and women so that you don't waste time and money taking the wrong ones. Today I'm welcoming Justine Altman back to the podcast. Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility...your body is desperately trying to tell you something...focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success. Justine is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She was diagnosed with POCS and struggled with infertility but after taking a functional approach was able to have both her children naturally. In this episode you'll learn: 1) How to watch out for dyes, fillers, and top allergens in your supplements 2) Our take on generalized fertility supplement recommendations (are they worth your money?) i.e. chastetree, maca, royal jelly, bee pollen, zinc, iron 3) Our basic (these are the supplements you need to be taking if you are TTC) supplement recommendations (your partner is included too!) 4) Our approach with supplements and why they are only part of the equation. We discuss the importance of diet, sleep, exercise, and stress so that you can prepare your body in the best way for pregnancy success. TIMESTAMPS: 05:29- JUSTINE'S BIO 06:19- WHY WE ARE ADDRESSING SUPPLEMENTS * Why taking heaps of supplements can be problematic * Why we are addressing supplements for both men and woman * "You cannot out supplement the basics." 08:58- WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SUPPLEMENT INDUSTRY * The importance of good quality supplements * The harm low-quality supplements can have * Should you buy supplements from Amazon? 12:23- GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS- SHOULD WE LISTEN? * Supplements that might be helpful, but aren't always for everyone 14:10- BASIC SUPPLEMENTS- PRENATAL * What you MUST have in your prenatal 16:34- MEN'S MULTIVITAMIN 17:32- COQ10 18:26- MAGNESIUM 19:52- OMEGA 3'S * OMEGA 3's vs. OMEGA 6's * Anti-inflammatory properties 21:03- VITAMIN D3 & K2 * Why is it important? Why do we take K2 with it? 23:38- PROBIOTICS 26:00- USING PROBIOTICS WHILE TRYING TO REDUCE INFECTIONS 27:00- RECAP OF SUPPLEMENT BASICS * How long should we be taking them? * Which ones we should temporarily take vs. take long-term. 29:27- FINAL THOUGHTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS "Most of the supplements are not forever." "One size does not fit all." "We cannot out supplement any bad diet or lifestyle behaviors." --- Sponsored by Fab Fertile Store.

Episode #79: Ali Jawad, 3-Time Paralympian in Powerlifting
We dare you to tell Ali Jawad that he can't do something. He will probably prove you wrong just as he's been doing his entire life. Ali was born without legs, but he has never viewed that as a disadvantage. At age 7, he dreamed of being on an Olympic podium after watching Michael Johnson win double golds in the 200m and 400m in Atlanta. He finally made that dream come true by winning a silver medal in Rio in 2016 in his third Paralympic Games. The journey to that podium was not an easy one. In fact, Ali nearly lost his life in 2010 due to complications from Crohn's disease. In this episode with Kara and Chris, Ali shares his inspiring story, one that has been grounded in integrity since the very beginning. He discusses his first week in powerlifting at 16 when his coach gave him the choice to always compete clean or get out of his gym. He talks about his meteoric rise in the sport to his first Paralympic Games in Beijing in 2008, but his chances for the podium there were derailed by a mysterious illness. That illness, later diagnosed as Crohn's disease would nearly take his life and almost cost him his career in 2010. Ever present, he is still struggling with the impact of Crohn's on his body to this day. Ali discusses how he overcame these challenges to become a World Champion in 2014, European Champion in 2015, and then win that coveted silver medal in Rio in 2016. Now, Ali hopes to make a 4th Paralympic team in Tokyo this year, but he tells you why it might be his biggest challenge yet. Along the way, Ali has been an outspoken advocate for clean sport since the very beginning of his career in powerlifting. He has spoken out against systematic doping in his sport, advocated for lifetime bans, and provided specific recommendations on how to change the governance structure within WADA in order to better elevate the athlete's voice. You will not find an athlete who speaks more clearly on these topics, and we are honored to share Ali's inspiring story with you.
