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…

“To the unsupportive OB:” “To that labor and delivery nurse:” “To my partner:” “To the midwife who believed in me:” “To myself:” The long-awaited episode is here. This is the one where YOU have the spotlight. Mari Vega and Allie Mennie are back to join Meagan and Julie as they read your letter submissions. Let your voices be heard. Let your trauma heal. We tell the world everything you weren’t given the chance to say during your birth. Additional links The VBAC Link’s Advanced VBAC Doula Certification Program Allie Mennie’s website Mari Vega’s website Episode sponsor This episode is sponsored by our Advanced VBAC Doula Certification Program.

Full transcript Note: All transcripts are edited to correct grammar and to eliminate false starts and filler words. Julie: Happy Wednesday, women of strength. We have a really incredible episode for you today. I can’t even put into words all of the things I am feeling about what we are about to do because it’s big. It’s big, and it’s emotional. Some of us are reading over these for the first time. I think there’s going to be lots of tears and crying. I don’t know. We’re going to try to not get angry and frustrated. We asked you back in December, or the end of November, maybe it was, to write an anonymous letter to a healthcare worker, your provider, somebody on your hospital staff, or somebody that negatively affected your birth. These are all anonymous letters. We have lots and lots of submissions, and we are excited to read them to you today. Now, I want you to be advised that some of these letters have some difficult experiences explained in them. But, I think it’s really, really important that we listen to these, we hear them, and we meet these anonymous letter writers where they are because this is the state of maternity care in our country. These things that we are about to read are not uncommon experiences. And this is why we as The VBAC Link, and we as birth doulas and all of us advocate so much for change and education, and all sorts of things. But before I start rambling on more, I don’t want to take too long. We are not going to read a review of the week. We are just going to get right into the letters after the intro. Episode sponsor Julie: Birth workers, listen up. Do you want to increase your knowledge of birth after a Cesarean? We created our Advanced VBAC Doula Certification Program just for you. It is the most comprehensive VBAC doula training in the world, perfectly packaged in an online, self-paced video course. This course is designed for birth workers who want to take their VBAC education to the next level so you can support parents who have had a Cesarean in the most effective ways. We have created a complete system, a step-by-step road map that shows exactly what you need to know to support parents birthing after a Cesarean. Head over to thevbaclink.com to find out more information and sign up today. That’s thevbaclink.com. See you there. Everything Left Unsaid Julie: Alright, as you know, we have invited Allie Mennie and Marilys back with us to this episode as a follow-up to Marilys’ episode. We are going to take turns reading the letters. You guys, these are really raw and vulnerable. We are going to rotate through and try not to scream, and yell, and hit our computer screens. But also, yeah. That’s it, nothing else. Mari, do you have the first one? Mari: Our first letter starts with: “Hello, beautiful doula angels! I just listened to Marilys’ episode and wanted to send you my letter. My letter may actually be the opposite of what you are looking for. It would be a positive one because although I ended up with a Cesarean, my provider made my birth experience amazing. It was the nurses I didn’t care for. ‘To my provider, thank you. Thank you for letting me make my own decisions. Thank you for asking for consent before doing any procedures or taking the next steps. For informing me of all the risks and benefits of any procedure, I had the OPTION for during my pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Thank you for not making me feel guilty or bad about my 60lb pregnancy weight gain. For giving me the option of which hospital I wanted to deliver at. For dealing with my many text messages asking you questions throughout my pregnancy. Thank you for coming to my birth even though you were not on call. For having me push for four hours before even mentioning a Cesarean. For being quiet and calm while having me and my son in our most vulnerable states-- my body open and my mind full of fear. Thank you for taking time going over the risks and benefits of a Cesarean as well as a VBAC and reminding me that the best-case scenario for me would be to VBAC. For assuring me that the risk of uterine rupture is extremely low and should not deter me from having a VBAC. Thank you for recommending a pelvic floor therapist when I came to you six months postpartum, still leaking urine and in agonizing pain during intercourse. Thank you for being the provider that performed my cesarean and the provider I have 110% confidence in to support my VBAC.’ I hope this letter can be a reminder that a negative birth experience is not always the result of the provider or their actions. My provider was one of the most positive aspects of my birth and the only time I was fully able to relax was with her in the room. The negative aspects of my birth experience came from the labor and postpartum nurses, as well as my lack of knowledge and education about the whole process. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. But because of The VBAC Link, I now know what I didn’t know, and more.” Meagan: Wow. Mari: Whew! Go, VBAC Link. Julie: I love that. Mari: What a nice start. Julie: What a great letter to start this episode off with. Perfect. Mari: It’s important. It’s important for people to know that it’s also the journey that matters and not the outcome. Julie: Absolutely. Absolutely. I love it. Alright. Allie, you are up with the next letter. Allie: Alrighty. They start by saying: “Thank you for posting the most recent podcast.” This is actually a member of Mari’s ICAN chapter. She says: “I'm so glad to have seen and heard her on your platform. This is such a good exercise. I'm glad to have had the chance to write out my feelings to MYSELF on my ‘failed’ VBAC.” So this is a letter that this mother wrote to herself. It says: “You are a warrior mama to your two beautiful babies. I wish you didn't cast so much self-doubt and ill feelings of your capacity to be a mom simply because you didn't push them out of your vagina. After your first C-section, which we both agree you naively weren't prepared for but still doesn't justify how traumatic it was (even these 30 months later), you did ALL the things in preparation of your next pregnancy-- switched providers, read all the books, listened to podcasts, went to ICAN meetings, hired a doula, found your voice to fight for the birth you knew you wanted and the chance to make that happen. That morning, four days before your due date when you went into labor, remember those feelings. You were ecstatic to go into labor on your own, something previously robbed of you, it escalated so fast. You got to the hospital two hours later to have your water break as you wobbled in, to find you were already at a ten and fully effaced and ready to push that baby out. As you started pushing, you had a deep gut feeling that this wasn't going to be a different…

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!

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.

The Wondrous World of Living Color
Step into the vibrant and beautiful world of living color with natural dyer, designer, and artist Sasha Duerr. Sasha takes us on a journey from Soil to Studio. We learn how creating and working with dyes made from plants, seaweed, and other natural materials can increase our ecological and botanical knowledge, foster collaboration, and have a beneficial impact on ecosystems. Natural dyeing offers us multiple opportunities to participate in solutions. Food scraps and green waste can transform old clothes into “new”. Instead of being buried at landfills and emitting VOC’s, organic materials like onion skins, pomegranate rinds, and citrus peels can be re-purposed into natural dyes that revitalize our wardrobes and lessen our carbon footprint. Some dyes can even be poured into the garden when finished and used as a fertilizer. Unwanted weeds in your yard or invasive plants in your neighborhood can also be turned into color. One of my favorite dyes is Sour Grass. I look forward to seeing this ubiquitous plant every winter. I collect loads of it and dye old clothes a neon yellow that really glows. (Note: Be sure to identify plants before using them as dyes- just in case they are toxic.) Sasha talks about a few of her favorite dyes including Loquat, Eucalyptus leaves, and Redwood Cones, all very appropriate plants for beginning dyers. We also learn about some of the palettes from her new book Natural Color. I especially loved the Pollinator and Perfume Palettes. They will make you swoon! What color story would you like your clothes to tell? Sasha Duerr is an artist and designer who works with plant-based palettes, natural dyes, and place-based recipes. She is an Adjunct Professor at the California College of the Arts with a joint appointment in textiles and fine arts where she designs curriculum and teaches courses in the intersection of natural color, slow food, slow fashion, and social practice. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums across the United States and abroad. In 2007, Sasha founded the Permacouture Institute to encourage the exploration of regenerative design practices for fashion and textiles. Her extensive work with plant-based palettes and ecological principles through local land-based sources and community has been featured in many publications She is the author of The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes, Natural Color, and Natural Palettes.Discover more about Sasha and her work at SashaDuerr.com.

Diet Culture and the Patriarchy
Have you ever stopped to consider that dieting and the diet industry work to keep us busy and distracted as a result of the patriarchy? The constant pursuit of body perfection tries to keep us spinning on a hamster wheel so that we do not have the time or energy for anything else, and that needs to stop now. Key Takeaways If You Want To Start Uncovering How Dieting and the Patriarchy You Can: * Stop equating healthiness to weight * Accept that you have a skewed perception of your body * Challenge yourself to think about how you perpetuate diet culture in the patriarchy * Take steps to actively put your time and energy into something different than body perfection The System Was Built To Make Us Fail When we are preoccupied with the scale and food restrictions, we shrink ourselves literally and metaphorically. The ideal body comes from decades of the patriarchy that is reinforced by everything around you. The system is designed to oppress women-identifying folks, while the ideal body keeps changing. The time, resources, and attention that pursuit of body perfection takes is just simply not worth it. It is about damn time that we get off this hamster wheel and focus on something other than our bodies. Reinvesting Your Energy How often do you compliment someone on their looks as the first thing you say about them? Can you imagine how much time and energy you could get back if you started questioning the influence of the patriarchy on our endless pursuit for body perfection? Instead of focusing on what could go wrong or what you could miss out on if you start feeding into this internalized intersection of diet and the patriarchy, think about all the things you could gain if you stopped focusing on controlling the way you look. I truly believe that we were not put on this planet to work ourselves to achieve the perfect body. Your energy, your spirit, and your magic could all be being wasted on the patriarchal view of body perfection, and you are worth so much more than that. How are you working to stop internalizing and perpetuating the intersection of diet culture and the patriarchy? Let me know how your challenge went this week in the comments section of the episode page. In This Episode * Examples of ways that diet culture keeps us distracted from the world around us (6:10) * The role of the patriarchy and how it is woven into oppressive systems (11:50) * Why we need to tease apart health and weight and accept body diversity (17:42) * The problem with BMI and how it plays into body dysmorphia (20:00) * A special challenge for you to take away from this episode (23:23) Quotes “Dieting for the sake of body perfection keeps us distracted from everything else going on in the world because it is all-consuming.” (6:15) “We have this constantly being reinforced to us from a very young age that if we look the part if we look a certain way like these body ideals and beauty ideals, that we will be more worthy, that we will be better people. And it is absolutely a tool of the patriarchy.” (11:58) “Because of body diversity, some people in larger bodies are in great health, just like some people in smaller bodies are in terrible health.” (19:06) “We live in a patriarchal society, we live in a fatphobic society, we live in a white supremacist society, where all of these things are consistently reinforced. So it is not our fault.” (22:42) “How can you take your idea of worth, your own worth or what you appreciate about someone else, and expand that? What energy would that buy you back?” (27:14) Featured on the Show If you're ready to get free with food and fitness, check out the Tune In Membership Mindful Eating Tool More Than A Body by Lindsay Kite & Lexi Kite Body Image With Bri Instagram Join the Listen To Your Body Newsletter Steph Gaudreau Website Check out the full show notes here!
