Top Questions To Ask Before You Hire A Local Functional Practitioner
Today we’re digging into the top questions to ask before you hire a local practitioner. If you are anything like me when I found functional medicine, I couldn’t believe that no one had told me about it. I was so excited that I literally wanted to tell everyone…but I first started working on myself and then I created a ripple effect of optimal health through my immediate family, friends, and ultimately the fertility community. If you are following me, reading my emails, listening to my podcast you know how life-changing the functional approach can be for someone who is on the fertility journey. And you may be ready to start on your functional health journey to discover the missed healing opportunities so that you can get pregnant naturally. You may be thinking that a local functional practitioner could be a good fit for you. Before you sign up with a local practitioner I want to give you some questions to consider to ensure the practitioner has what you need to fast track your chances of pregnancy success so that you don’t waste time and money. Because we’ve seen many couples invest in a local practitioner and not get the results they were promised.

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 *

Hungry For Change: When Too Much Info Is Too Much
I want you to think back to 2011. What were you doing a decade ago? I was unhappy with different aspects of my life, feeling restless, and starting to think I should do something else. It took me two years, but in 2013 I changed my career and haven't looked back since. If you have an inkling that something isn't quite right in your life but are getting stuck on the road to making that change, this is the episode for you. Key Takeaways If You Want To Get Out Of the Information Overload Stage You Should: * Do your research but know when you have done enough * Be honest with yourself about where you are at in the stages of change * Meet yourself with grace and compassion * Challenge yourself to take action Finding Your Intuitive Eating Sweet Spot When making a change in your life, big or small, there is a tendency to get caught up in the learning phase. Often we don't want to jump into something until we feel 100% ready, but the truth is that if you wait to feel completely ready, you will be waiting forever. Diet culture tells us to outsource our health decisions which creates a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our bodies. This is simply not the case, and intuitive eating encourages you to find the sweet spot between those external values and your own body's attunement. While information can help you prepare for this next phase of your life, it is important to remember that you need to find the middle ground between preparing and actually taking action. The 6 Stages of Change Consuming information makes us feel like we are doing something when it is really aiding us in procrastinating on making the change we are contemplating. There are six stages of change, and it is important to be honest with yourself about what stage you are at and remember that after every speed bump comes a new cycle. Doing your research is great. But when you are able to take the information you have gathered and challenge yourself to take action, that is where the real magic happens. Intuitive eating is a combination of active learning and experiential learning, and it's up to you to get out there and do the thing. What stage of change do you feel that you are at with your relationship with food? Let me know in the comments on the episode page. In This Episode * How to move from gathering information to practicing and taking action (5:40) * Discover the sweet spot of authentic health and how to achieve it (10:30) * The stages of change and how to gain insight on where you are in your journey and what next steps you should take (14:00) * What to do if you are ready to take action but are getting stuck in the preparation phase (21:55) * Why you shouldn’t wait until you are 100% ready to start your intuitive eating journey (30:12) Quotes “There are so many places that you can get stuck, and one of them is information overload.” (2:02) “How can we find that middle ground? How can we find the overlap? That is really why putting intuitive eating principles into practice is so important, because it helps to combat only loading yourself with information.” (13:22) “Where are you at with your own relationship with food and coming to a kinder place that isn’t so ‘all or nothing’? I want you to think about that.” (21:48) “At the end of the day, you can read the book, you can read the workbook, you can listen to all of the podcasts, you can read all the anti-diet books, you can do all of that. And some things may change...but intuitive eating by its very nature is an active experiential process.” (24:42) “Give yourself grace, it is a process. If you feel like you are going to wait until you are 100% ready, you are going to be waiting forever.” (30:28) Featured on the Show Join the Tune In Membership Here Join the Listen To Your Body Newsletter Steph Gaudreau Website Check out the full show notes here!

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
