139: Vegan Skin Care and Cosmetics with Kari Knight DCNP
In this episode of Veggie Doctor Radio, I chat with Kari Knight, DCNP about vegan skin care and cosmetics. About featured guest: Kari was mostly vegetarian most of her life. She integrated a whole food plant-based diet for health reasons, but then her heart opened up to the ethical and compassionate reasons for veganism. Still early on in her journey, she is learning and exploring. Because she is a passionate dermatology nurse practitioner, I reached out to Kari to help me understand more about vegan skin care as cosmetics so that I could be myself be better informed and share this information with my listeners. This is an introductory conversation on this topic and I am sure we will re-visit these questions again, but she gives us a great place to start so that we can make better informed decisions in our own skin care.

Episode 439: A Conversation around Current Events
The Whole View, Episode 439: A Conversation around Current Events Welcome back to episode 439 of the Whole View. (0:27) Just last week, Stacy and Sarah discussed the New Year and how we can start it off right by forming positive habits. And then the New Year came and hit us all in the face. Stacy takes a minute to reflect on how rough this week has been for everyone. She also reminds any new listeners that Sarah is actually a new American citizen. She takes a moment to check in with Sarah on how she feels about every going on in our country. Checking In With Sarah Sarah has been struggling a lot with the Capitol events last week and the iterative unfolding around it. She's found it incredibly hard to concentrate on work or even get away from the news alerts. Sarah shares that she became a citizen because it felt like making official something that already existed. Sarah explains how difficult it is to put the feelings of alarm, disappointment, concern, and overall violation into words. She also expresses how she feels as if she's waiting for something - whether it's the other shoe to drop or consequences - or if it what she's waiting for will even happen altogether. Sarah has been struggling to understand the complex mix of emotions she's been experiencing since last Wednesday. She believes her experience is a very common one to many immigrants, in the sense that when she arrived in her new country, everything was different, and there was a lot of culture clash. Many things are uniquely American that you learn about living here, immersed in the culture. No amount of TV or sharing with others can accurately show those things. The more she learned about the country and its history, the more she came to appreciate the truly remarkable beginnings of the country. And the model of democracy it represents for the world. Learning about a country is part of the immigrant process. And learning the history of the country is one thing that made Sarah fall in love with the US. Right now, everything going on feels so discordant with what American Democracy means. Stacy's Realization Sarah explains it like walking through your home after a burglar has broken in and you don't know what they've taken or touched and violated. (5:20) That's how these events have made her feel about her adopted home- there's this permeating sense of violation. Stacy shares how much she agrees with that analogy. For Stacy, her realization started around May/June. That was around the time she and Sarah decided to come forward out of the community and talk about things they felt were representative of the messages shared on TWV, in terms of wellness and safety for all. Stacy is working through these recent events on two levels: personally, as a mother, and also as someone lucky enough to have a voice in the community. Stacy tells listeners that she's always been aware of her privilege. Standing for safety and wellness for all has always been a mission and passion of hers: * She quit her job to devote more time to get safer beauty products into the hands of everyone. * She also has a degree in the Social Justice field and a minor in Women's Studies. Advocacy is something that's been at the forefront of Stacy's mind. Yet, she could see the awful things happening and has, at times, been guilty of turning it off and looking away. Understanding Privilege One of the realizations she came to is how privileged she is that she could even do that. She could separate herself, turn it off, and look away because she is not directly affected or oppressed by the messages being sent. It is not safe and not encouraging wellness for those vulnerable populations to witness some of the messages being said and not do anything to help or support. Stacy adds that this is not designed to say, "you can't have free speech." But rather, that free speech isn't what's happening here. From this realization, she's been making a conscious effort to lean in more, watch more and listen more. And she's noticed the physical and emotional toll it's beginning to take on her as an empathic individual. What We Can Do She wonders some healthy coping mechanisms we can do since we're all going to approach things differently. (9:48) She also wants everyone to think about what we can do to influence change. Stacy shares she is focusing on actionable change. This includes looking at her daily life, the brands she supports and asking herself if that's representative of where she wants to channel her money and support. As individuals, we know where our values and beliefs are. And we can choose to support others who value the same things. This is something that's given Stacy a sense of power in a situation where she often feels powerless. Sarah shares that she's been struggling to find actions she can take in her life the way Stacy was able to. She tells listeners she and her family have been having many discussions to promote compassion for the anger behind falling into this misinformation ecosystem. She's also tried very hard to help her kids understand this moment in the context of American history. The Importance Of Education In Current Events Her primary coping strategy has been to talk about what happened, their feelings toward it, and the information. (12:30) As listeners know, this show is very data-driven. Stacy and Sarah try to stay away from black-and-white rules around wellness, focus on education, and look at the big picture of health. In a way, she's been applying that same approach to current events to better understand. This way, she can make better-informed decisions. Arming ourselves with data-driven information is something Sarah falls back on in times of stress and anxiety. And it's definitely what she and her family are doing currently. Stacy stresses how difficult and important it is, as a parent, to have those conversations with our children. If our children don't hear it from us - the lessons and values we want to share - they will get it somewhere else. There is value in being someone who can receive those feelings from your children. Stacy has always prided herself on her kids' empowerment in coming to her with their frustrations or sad. Take Care Of Yourself Stacy and Sarah have also been working hard to handle their anxiety, so they are emotionally available to family members who need to talk. (17:01) They've been doing this a lot through CBD oil. For more about CBD oil, see Episode 420. Stacy has also been working on getting more sleep. If she doesn't get enough sleep, everything in her life crumbles. Stacy references this Episode 397 for more information on sleep. Stacy encourages listeners to figure out how they can get better sleep because everything else in life gets easier to take care of if we get enough sleep. Sarah shares the "Do Not Disturb" feature on her phone has helped her avoid distractions at night. Stacy also invites listeners interested in mediation to check out the show she and Sarah did on mediation's scientific benefits. Final Thoughts On Current Events Stacy wraps things up by reminding listeners that their feelings are valid and that they are not alone. (23:29) She knows it's difficult to know the people if your life doesn't think the same as you and wish they would. Or that you have it better than others and feel guilt. We are all entitled to the way we feel without guilt or shame. There is no benefit to that guilt. Stacy reminds us that the best thing we can do is feel better, make a change, take action, or whatever it is that will pull you out of that guilt or shame. She strongly encourages everyone to step away from the shame cycle and really focus on making changes for the better. Stacy and Sarah appreciate you being a part of their lives and this show. When it comes to protecting and supporting vulnerable communities, Stacy urges listeners to do whatever they can to take action and show that support. We all mus…

EP49 | SIBO Relapse, Retreatment & Prevention + New Therapy Ideas That Give Us Hope with Dr. Allison Siebecker
We are ending the podcast where we began: with the incredible Dr. Allison Siebecker. In this wind-down episode, I wanted to cover some frequently asked questions around relapse, retreatment and prevention. So many people end up in cycles of SIBO that they feel they will never exit from. But there is so much to be hopefully about, even for chronic SIBO cases, and this conversation really shows why. Not only does Dr. Siebecker help troubleshoot some scenarios of stubborn SIBO, she gives an overview of an entire new toolkit of therapies that have shown incredible clinical results. None of these ideas involve aggressive herbals or antibiotics—in fact, very few require any pills at all. Even if you feel you know everything there is to know about SIBO, I assure you this episode will open your mind to a whole new world of healing. A quick taste of what we’ll cover: * How many courses of herbs and antibiotics are too many * What are the signs that someone is reacting to a treatment itself or die-off * How long do you wait to retest after treatment? And when is retesting not worth it * When to start prokinetics and how long to take them for * A whole arsenal of new therapies: Frequency Specific Microcurrent, Neural retraining systems, Neural therapy, Electrical stimulation, Myofascial release, Craniosacral therapy, Hypnotherapy, Immunoglobulins, Low Dose Immunotherapy, Peptides, Tapping and more! Resources, mentions and notes: * The SIBO Made Simple Book – ON SHELVES NOW!! * Submit your book receipt to join Gut Heal Bootcamp on 1/18 * Sign up for my Low FODMAP Cooking Classes (1/27 is Italian Stallion!) * Pay it forward: write a book review on Amazon to support my work (you don't have to have bought it there) * Join the SIBO Made Simple Facebook Community Page * Subscribe to the newsletter (and receive a free low FODMAP cookbook) * Follow me on Instagram to keep the conversation going * Dr. Siebecker's Website * Dr. Siebecker’s New Therapies for Treating SIBO Summit * Bysmouth biofilm remedies: Paul Anderson’s formula, Priority Biofilm Phase 2 Advanced * Carol McMakin – FSM * Gupta Program + DNRS This episode is brought to you by SIBO Made Simple – THE BOOK!

#85 The Brain Series (Part 3 of 3). Transforming your Brain with Dr Tara Swart
What if we could harness the power of our thoughts to change the function of our brain and manifest the perfect life we’ve always wanted for ourselves. You might think I’m talking about new-age self help sensationalism, quantum physics and hype. But I’m actually talking about concepts rooted in ancient philosophy, that are being proven by breakthroughs in neuroscience and neuroimaging. I’m delighted to be chatting with Dr Tara Swart - a neuroscientist, medical doctor, executive advisor, Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan, and author of best-seller ‘The Source’. A book that distills the principles and actions of how we can harness the power of our conscious mind to alter the world around us. Tara is passionate about disseminating simple, pragmatic neuroscience-based messages that change the way people live and work. She personally advises a small number of individuals via personal recommendation only, and speaks at major conferences globally. Today we talk about: * The field of nutrition, the microbiota and how that has an impact on our thoughts * Ancient wisdom and how this has been gradually explained through the lens of neuroscience * The science explained the “law of attraction” * How to manifest your thoughts into reality * Brain agility and how we train it * Neuroplasticity * Psychobiotics * Brain healthy foods, Brain healthy exercises and Brain healthy thoughts * Why action boarding works * Tara’s personal story of leaving her job, divorce and moving country all at the same time and how she harnessed the power of her mind to maintain resilience “There’s no fate but what we make for ourselves” – The Terminator Do be sure to check out The Doctor's Kitchen Website for full show notes and social media links for this and all our other episodes.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
