#24 The Health Benefits of Yoga – with Dr Claire Hennigan
Play • 57 min

Today we’re talking with Dr Claire Hennigan (@Real Yoga Doctor) about Yoga as a method of restorative practice, an exercise and even a way of life.


Yoga is a practice that I talk about a lot in the new book “Eat to beat illness” as a mind body intervention that I believe is essential for our busy modern lives.


In this episode, we cover the following:

  • Yoga as a stress relieving strategy
  • Inflammation related changes
  • Immune system effects
  • Community aspect of yoga


And you can find all of this information and more at www.thedoctorskitchen.com

Approaching climate change like a game of chess with Dr Jonathan Foley
In *Episode #119* I sit down with *Dr Jonathan Foley*, one of the worlds most highly regarded Climate and Environmental Scientist's. Jonathan has published over 130 peer reviewed papers in the the field of sustainability in highly prestigious journals such as _Science_ and _Nature_. He is also an author, a highly sought after guest speaker and is the Executive Director at Project Drawdown, a not-for-profit organisation which is widely considered as the worlds leading resource for information on climate solutions. However, as brilliant as his resume is, his communication is arguably what makes his work so incredibly powerful. * In this episode we cover:* * How the climate change conversation has moved from debate around its existence to debate around solutions * What Project Drawdown is * Individual versus government action * Looking at climate change as a game of chess * Why climate change doesn't have to be scary * The changes we can make as individuals with a specific focus on three key areas: water, energy and food. * and much more If you are wanting to learn real facts about climate change and the solutions we have, from someone who not only values science but contributes to it, then I highly suggest you make time to listen to this...probably more than once! And of course, share it to any friends or family members who you think may benefit from hearing from Dr Foley. *Resources:* * Project Drawdown * Jonathan's Bio * Jonathan on twitter * Jonathon's blog 'Beef rules' * Jonathan's blog on seeing Climate change as a game of Chess * Confused about holistic grazing and whether grass-fed beef is a real climate solution? Read this paper out of Oxford University Dr Tara Garnett which discusses some of the problems with claims from certain people in this industry. You can also read a piece I co-wrote with Environmental Researcher Nicholas Carter here for more on this topic. *My Book:* My new book _The Proof is in the Plants_ is out May 4th. Preorder your copy here. *Want to support the show?* The single best way you can support the show is by leaving a review on Apple podcast app - it only takes a few minutes and would be much appreciated.

Ordinary Vegan Podcast #96-Vegan Swaps & Recipes for Animal Products
Are you thinking of adding more plants to your diet in 2021? Today's podcast shares some easy vegan swaps to ease the transition. Finding substitutions for animal products is perhaps the most difficult part of vegan cooking. But it can also be the healthiest thing you can do. For example, when you switch one tablespoon of aquafaba for one egg, you cut out 5 grams of fat and 75 calories. So if you are looking for equally delicious and healthy vegan swaps, look no further. Podcast #96 will introduce you to many vegan swaps and recipes along with: * Healthy Eating Checklist * Oil Substitutes * Best Vegan Banana Bread: Oil-Free & Super Moist * Whipped Cream and Meringue * Egg Replacements * Quick Black Bean Veggie Burgers (recipe below) * The Best Vegan Binding Agents * Cream and Sauce Substitutes * Sunflower Pasta Alfredo Sauce (recipe below) * Gelatin Precautions I hope today's simple vegan swaps helps your transition to a plant-based diet. For recipes and inspiration, please follow me on Instagram and Facebook. You can purchase my vegan, organic line of CBD products from hemp on my website. The National Institutes of Health released a study that "revealed very high rates of clinically significant insomnia along with more stress, anxiety, and depression since the Covid-19 pandemic." All-natural CBD from hemp can enhance the serotonin receptors. Low serotonin levels are commonly associated with people who have depression and anxiety. Anxiety is a key factor behind insomnia. I hope my CBD can help you get a good night's sleep. Additionally, you can find my cookbook "The Easy 5 Ingredient Vegan Cookbook" HERE. I would also like to thank Forager for sponsoring this podcast. Don't forget to go to Foragerproject.com/cultivatehealth for your FREE cup of yogurt. Please stay safe and stay well.

256: How To Build Lean Muscle and Boost Your Metabolism Based on Your Menstrual Cycle, Even in Perimenopause w/ Dr. Stephanie Estima
If You Want To Build Lean Muscle and Boost Your Metabolism Based On Your Menstrual Cycle You Should: * Reset your metabolism and increase your metabolic flexibility by burning fat for fuel rather than sugar * Take ownership of your body and start listening to your intuition * Eat and train in tune with the four phases of your menstrual cycle and your lifestyle Your menstrual cycle can impact your energy, metabolism, and even your creativity. So doesn't it make sense that you could leverage the four phases of your cycle to achieve optimal health and metabolic flexibility? While your body is constantly evolving every month, there are some simple ways that you can increase your metabolic flexibility, start eating for your cycle and become more in tune with your innate intuitive bodily wisdom. Leveraging Your Cycle for Optimal Health Dr. Stephanie Estima is an expert in metabolism and body composition. She is focused on distilling strategies in nutrition, movement, and mindset to actualize human potential, longevity, and achievement. She is here today to share ways to navigate your hormones' changing landscape to treat your body right. Eating in Tune with Your Cycle Hormone imbalance, your stress response system, your menstrual cycle, and your metabolism are all deeply interconnected. The truth is, all women are born with the ability to burn fat for fuel or sugar for fuel, but we are never taught how to access the fat-burning pathway. Dr. Stephanie suggests starting there and then moving to a female ketogenic diet to introduce a nutrition plan that is in tune with your menstrual cycle. Women are designed to have different needs during each of our four phases, but no woman is the same. Once you understand your natural rhythm and how long you stay in each phase, you can customize everything from your meal plan to your workout to better serve your body. In the long run, this will make you more metabolically flexible, decrease your perceived stress, and better prepare you for the hormonal changes in your present and future. Listen to Your Body As a woman, it is so important to learn how to listen to your body signals. Dr. Stephanie and I know that every woman is like a snowflake, and you have to take the time to learn how you uniquely operate. By taking ownership of our bodies, learning how to let your intuition be your guiding light, and understanding what you need for your female physiology, you can leverage your cycle to match up with your nutritional profile and start seeing the results you have been looking for. You get to choose the way you view your thoughts, your body, and your hormones. Perimenopause, menopause, and beyond can be an incredibly exciting, sexy, and fun time if you listen to what your body is telling you and honor and adapt to the changes your body is going through. Are you ready to embrace the confidence and self-love that leads to long-lasting sexiness? Share your experience with hormones, perimenopause, or menopause with me in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “That's where sexiness comes from, is the confidence, and the self-love, and the belief that you can actually make a change if you want too.” (14:47) “You are not going to be perfect; you are perfectly imperfect.” (31:24) “All women are born with the capacity to burn sugar for fuel, and the capacity to burn fat for fuel. The problem is we never access the fat pathway.” (36:39) “You just have to learn how long you stay in each phase of your menstrual cycle if you are still in your reproductive age and then adapt to it. That’s the hallmark of a sexy, empowered woman is because she knows herself. And one of the rights of passage, if you will, as a woman, is to understand how you are uniquely different. Not only just from men, but from other women.” (43:03) “The egg doesn't run up and down the fallopian tube looking for the guy wondering if he texted you, no! She is like ‘I am here. The smart ones are going to find me. I am the queen!’” (55:05) In This Episode * How to reframe and honor the changes your body is going through in perimenopause (8:25) * Learn about the stress response of ‘tend and befriend’ that you may not have heard of before (18:36) * Tips for shifting what you eat and the way that you are eating to regain metabolic flexibility (30:30) * The importance of learning how to listen and respond to your body when she is talking to you (41:24) * Why you should start acting more like your eggs and appreciating the wisdom of your body (54:37) Resources Mentioned: Register for the Perimenopause and Menopause Relief Summit 4-Week Meal Plan Free Gift The Betty Body by Dr. Stephanie Estima Dr. Stephanie Estima Website The Estima Diet Protocol Follow Dr. Stephanie on Instagram Related Episodes: Essentially You Episode #244: How to Eat and Train According To Your Menstrual Cycle with Dr. Stephanie Estima Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative

#160 BITESIZE | How Walking Improves Our Brain and Mental Health | Shane O’Mara
Walking can slow and even reverse functional ageing in the brain, improve our cognition, our creativity and our mental health but yet it is such an underrated activity. Feel Better Live More Bitesize is my new weekly podcast for your mind, body and heart. Each week I’ll be featuring inspirational stories and practical tips from some of my former guests. Today’s clip is from episode 84 of the podcast with neuroscientist Shane O’Mara, a professor of experimental brain research at Trinity College Dublin. Shane believes walking can be our superpower. In this clip he explains how the many benefits of walking go beyond the physical – it’s important for our mood, our happiness and our wellbeing. Shane reveals the results of a study that showed that walking improved memory and attention and reversed functional ageing of the brain, and that if we walk before doing a task, we perform it more creatively. The benefits of walking are retained throughout life and it’s never too late to start. As Shane says, ‘you only get old when you stop walking, you don’t stop walking because you’re old’.

Ep. 9: Dr. Reshma Shah - Food and Family
Last week, we spoke with registered dietitian and author, Brenda Davis, about her latest work called, Nourish: The Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families--With Tips & Recipes for Bringing Health, Joy, & Connection to Your Dinner Table. This week, we continue with part two of this important topic with co-author, Dr. Reshma Shah. Dr. Shah is a board-certified pediatrician, mother, plant-based home-cook, teacher, and student. She has nearly two decades of experience caring for children and families, and currently sees patients at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and serves as an affiliate clinical instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine. We know it’s hard to bring an entire family on board the plant-based journey with you because there is a real fear around community, judgment, and nutrition requirements. We also know that you want what’s best for your families and it’s time we have positive conversations around food — with your doctors, friends, and especially your family. Dr. Shah reveals some of the tools, resources, and recipes from the book that will bring joy, abundance, and nutrition back to the family table. It will also instill confidence in knowing that you’re making powerful and positive decisions for the benefit of your entire family for years to come. It's never too late to make changes and bring the family along the adventure with you.
