051: Supporting Hormone Health with Nutrition with Dietitian Amanda Montalvo
Play • 51 min

When we hear the word hormone, we tend to think of estrogen and progesterone. Actually, there are many other hormones that each have a unique role to play. Stress, medication, supplements, the food we eat, and how our body reacts all have an effect on our hormones. In this episode, Amanda and I talk about the role hormones play in our body, how hormones are affected postpartum, and some basic ways to implement a good foundation for hormone balance.

Does having a light period mean I have a thin uterine lining? (Ask The Egg Whisperer)
On today’s podcast, I’m sharing an Ask The Egg Whisperer episode. CJ writes in after having a miscarriage. Here’s part of her question, “I’m 37 yrs old, have 13 months of infertility! I've been through the ANGEL method tests and nothing screams out – My periods are very light (not a new thing post-D&C) - only 1.5 days and 2 tsp of blood; often brown and small clots. OB doesn't think this is an issue- called me "lucky.” I'm trying baby aspirin and vitamin E this month, but I've tried baby aspirin in the past. Does a light period mean thin lining? Any thoughts?” Here are some of my thoughts for CJ, and anyone who is going through something similar. Listen to your gut. Your uterus is telling you a story. Your uterus is saying “pay attention to me.” Of course, what I talk about here on Instagram and on The Egg Whisperer Show is just for educational purposes and not meant to replace medical advice from your personal physician. So if you're a patient of mine, I would say this: sounds like we need to rule out Asherman's syndrome. Asherman's Syndrome is when your lining gets really thin, and one of the risk factors for Asherman's syndrome is a D+C procedure. You also shared that even before the D+C maybe your lining was a little light. It's very possible that the thin lining is interfering with the healthy implantation and might increase your risk of having implantation issues and a miscarriage.

318: BIRTH STORY - Giving Birth in Another Country Without Fear, Intervention or Complication with Amy Brown
What’s it like giving birth outside of your native country? It’d be understandable to have fears and/or reservations around birthing in a different country. But what if it could be normal, uncomplicated, supported and without fear? Our guest today is Amy Brown. Amy traveled from Chicago, Illinois to Peru in 2011 to work as a teacher, and hasn’t left since. After meeting her now husband Marco, she has since set up life in Lima. And she has given birth to her two children: daughter, Leah and son, Christopher in a birthing center in the city.  Amy walks us through her journey of desiring natural births without intervention, to selecting the birthing center (run by a German doctor now living in Peru), working with a doula from England (yes, quite the international birth!) and preparing for the birth experience with Marco. We talk about some of the birthing options and trends in her area, where cesarean rates are particularly high.  Then we get to hear details from both of her births, which took place in the Casa Pakarii birth center: This story includes: international birth experience, husband being active participant in birth process, different birth options in Lima, Peru, placenta ceremony (el pago a la tierra), water birth Links: Amy’s Blog: http://www.wawasinperu.com/ Casa Pakarii Birth Center: https://pakarii.com/ Our website: https://www.diahpodcast.com/ DIAH Shop: ttps://bit.ly/3qhwgAe Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/diahpodcast/ Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/diahpodcast Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1904721379788084/?ref=bookmarks Donate to DIAH: https://bit.ly/3qgm4r9 Mama Natural: https://www.mamanatural.com/ Leave us a review: https://www.podchaser.com/podcasts/doing-it-at-home-216448

82: What You Should Know About the Intermittent Fasting Diet
"There is no one diet that works for everyBODY." Despite the research, many people continue to look for a "perfect diet" (diet to go on) and cycle from one fad diet to the next, hoping that they will find a quick fix or a solution to their food and body image issues. They are often excited when starting a new fad diet, then disappointed when they are not able to stay on their chosen diet or to maintain their gains. But have you ever considered that you’re going about this entirely the wrong way? In this podcast, you will learn: * What the research shows about the intermittent fasting diet. * What the $60 billion diet industry won’t tell you. * What you should eat to get and stay healthy.

086: Minimalist Motherhood (Interview with Diane Boden)
*Minimalist Motherhood?* It may seem like minimalism and motherhood don't work together! I used to feel that way too. *I thought minimalism was just for young couples who lived in modern apartments in the city.* But when I became a mom and my kids started growing, I realized all I did was clean up after them. *All day long, I picked up toys, did dishes and laundry, and moved paperwork from one flat surface to another.* *This is not how I pictured motherhood or how I wanted to spend the rest of it.* Minimalism and motherhood may seem like complete opposites, but learning what minimalism really means will give you the space you want and desperately need. On this episode of The Simple Home Podcast I talk with Diane Boden from The Minimalist Moms Podcast. Diane is the author of the brand new book, "Minimalist Moms" (which will be released in early March 2021). She teaches us what minimalism looks like in motherhood, realistic tips for decluttering, and how having less and doing less will benefit your whole family. Minimalism isn't just about have fewer possessions, although that does help. It's also about creating space for what's important to you and being grateful for what you already do have. Learning that you are enough and what you have is enough will go along way in you finding joy in motherhood. *Links from this Episode* * Minimalist Moms Podcast * Minimalist Moms Book- I already got my copy and LOVE it. Make sure you get your hands on it too! * The Simple Home Reset Mentorship Program- Enrollment is currently open now through Sunday, February 28, 2021.   *If you’d like to hang out more and stay motivated in between episodes, come join my free **Facebook community**.* It’s full of like minded people who are working hard to simplify their lives too!
