GUT MICROBIOME: Intrigued by how the gut microbiome might be influencing your health? @pedramshojai INTERCONNECTED docu-series is out now and it discusses how your gut microbiome might be at the root of autoimmune conditions, obesity, thyroid issues, and brain dysfunction. Here I am talking about how Hashimoto’s can be reversed by restoring the gut microbiome along with healing leaky gut, removing food sensitivities, improving detoxification, regulating the immune system and understanding your thoughts. Interconnected indeed! This part is only available (and free) until 9pm tonight but there are more in the series coming this week. I’m joined be fellow functional medicine practitioners @drmarkhyman @drchatterjee @robinberzinmd @izabellawentzpharmd @maxlugavere @zivameditation Link in the bio to watch.
ABSOLUTES: Is your “musturbating” making you feel like a failure? Do you hear these inner thoughts? *** I must never overeat even with friends or at parties....and if I do, then I feel guilty and beat myself up for it. * I must never sit on the couch and polish off a bowl (or two) of popcorn...and if I do, I lack self-control and I am a failure. * I must always follow my eating plan no matter the circumstances...and if I can’t, I lack willpower and I am hopeless. * I must always get everything right...and if I don’t, then I feel upset and ashamed. * I must always prioritize my children’s needs...and if I don’t, I’m a bad mother. * I must always look pretty...and if I don’t, I feel ugly and worthless. *** Stop musturbating by: 1. Replacing the “I must never” and the “I must always” with “I prefer not to” and “I prefer to” 2. Dropping the self-flagellating last phrase. It’s unfounded and inaccurate. *** #foodforthemind #foodcoachnyc #archetypediet #changeyourmind #cbt #rebt #psychology #food
Where the ocean meets the jungle...and you’re served tequila and tacos. I am relocating. #imanta #puntamita #mexico
Sleep-in. Take naps. Go to bed early. Maybe it’s not your thyroid or adrenals but your life asking for a reset. Honor it. #reset #rejuvenate #takenaps
WELLNESS: Honored to find out that @goop has featured me as one of their preferred gifts for health junkies. I currently see clients for functional medicine, nutrition and CBT in NYC and LA, and for the rest of the world, over FaceTime. I’ve been in practice for over 12 years, I have my Masters of Science in Medical Nutrition from Columbia University. I was trained in functional medicine by IFM and A4M and I studied at the Beck Institute for CBT. On top of that, my initial nutrition training was in UK as a nutritional therapist, utilizing CBT and NLP. I pull from many different modalities to help my clients find themselves again - be it physical, emotional or behavioral. *** My clients are highly educated about nutrition and health and are struggling to see changes in their physical body or their behaviors are stopping their success. I help find out why and offer a path for them to see success. Often it’s just small changes that make the difference. If you’re frustrated from lack of results, having an educated and experienced practitioner to guide you, can be the key to your success. #functionalmedicine #foodcoachnyc #archetypediet #goop #wellness
