The Power Of Going Gray With Your Hair with Lisa from This Organic Girl

The Power Of Going Gray With Your Hair with Lisa from This Organic Girl

In episode #39 we are hearing the power of going gray with your hair with Lisa, from This Organic Girl.  Lisa is the face behind the blog, This Organic Girl.  Where she blogs about all things clean living, natural beauty and healthy eats.  For the last two years she’s taken her readers on the ups and downs of going gray and what sparked the whole journey in the first place. She went all in with green living just a few years ago. It was the cumulation of a couple of things that happened which brought her into “her awareness” as she calls it.  She started wondering what the hype was with “organics” and if it was really a thing or just another sales tactic. Her mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor for the fourth time, her little one was suffering from Eczema and then one day her friend Angela said to her, “Did you know they wash chickens in chlorine?”

Pretty much from that moment on Lisa was on a quest to know and went hardcore all-in.  She went crazy turning over all of her products including toothpaste, deodorant and Tupperware containers.  She threw out the kids fluoride and hydrocortisone cream. Out went the Clorox wipes and the stainless steel cleaner. Dryer sheets were a thing of the past. Forget refined sugars – they didn’t even stand a chance.  She started making my own toothpaste and makeup, she didn’t eat out, she wouldn’t even look at processed or refined food. Vinegar became my best friend. Those were the dark days…. Then after some time and some serious label reading, She realized she could actually rejoin society and still make safe decisions for her family.  Everyday more organic options, healthy restaurants, products, food stores and resources are becoming available.  Not only is Lisa passionate about spreading the message but also enjoying living out her best natural life.  After all nontoxic living is anything but boring!

The Power Of Ayurveda For Health with Angela Glaz

The Power Of Ayurveda For Health with Angela Glaz

In this episode we are learning the power of Ayurveda in health with Angela.  Angela first began her practice of meditation and yoga in 2002 to alleviate chronic back pain and symptoms of depression. Since then, Angela has come along way! She has been lucky enough to travel to India twice to study Yoga and Ayurveda and deepen her own practice. She completed her studies through Himalaya Yoga Valley, an internationally accredited yoga program, located in Goa, India. In her program, she studied yoga under Yogacharya Lalit, who has studied under Sri BKS Iyengar, Sri K Pattabhi Jois, Sri Sharath Jois, and Sri BNS Iyengar, and studied Ayurveda under Dr. Rohit Borkar. Most recently, she has completed the Ayurvedic Counseling program through Kerala Ayurveda Academy.

She has a genuine passion for teaching all things and finds joy in encouraging her students to explore their own unique gifts. That passion and belief in honoring every individual’s unique qualities is what drove Angela to create and open what is now Eka Yoga.

Angela teaches with Midwest heart, West Coast soul, and enough quirkiness to make the most cynical crack a smile.

When not teaching yoga, you’ll most likely find Angela urban hiking with her fur baby (Desta the dachshund) or getting experimental with cooking in the kitchen.

  Why We Love It?

  • Goat whey has demonstrated positive anti-inflammatory effects in the digestive system. Cow whey has shown increased inflammatory effects.
  • Cow whey is considered allergenic whereas goat whey is considered hypoallergenic.
  • Whey protein is the “gold standard” for serious athletes. Goat whey is the “gold standard” of that “gold standard.”
  • Goat whey is amazing for our immune systems, supporting lean muscle growth and repair, as well as optimal body composition.
  • Goat whey has the full range of essential amino acids in ratios that best support the athlete in all of us
  • It is really light and doesn’t ever makes us feel bloated. That’s because there is nothing added to fill up space, just the purest goat whey and flavoring.
  • Activ Whey is a goat whey protein that comes from goats that are grassfed all the way through their lifecycle. There are zero antibiotics or hormones used on the goats or the vegetation they eat from.
  • I personally know the creator and can vouch for the legitimacy of the protein and where it is sourced from.

How To Reverse PCOS Holistically With Kate Kordsmeier

How To Reverse PCOS Holistically With Kate Kordsmeier

In episode #31 we are learning how to heal PCOS holistically with Kate Kordsmeier.  For nearly a decade, Kate was a full-time freelance food and travel writer and recipe developer–you can find her work in over 125 magazines, newspapers and websites, including USA Today, EatingWell, Cooking Light, Travel + Leisure, Shape, FITNESS, Women’s Health, The Washington Post, Clean Eating, Vegetarian Times, Wine Enthusiast, SELF and Real Simple.

In October 2015, after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Leaky Gut Syndrome (IBS), and hypothyroidism, and subsequently healing her symptoms naturally, she created Root + Revel. Though she’s a food writer—it’s literally her job to eat and report on the world’s most delicious foods—and a food lover, who believes strongly that life is not worth living without fried chicken, cheese and wine, she’s also seen firsthand the power of nutrition and how much the food we eat affects the way we feel. After her diagnosis, she was blown away by the rapid transformation she saw in her own body from simple, natural and holistic lifestyle changes. Truly, the food she ate and the natural products she used (and the toxic products she tossed!) have helped her live a near symptom-free life.  You can learn more about her diagnosis, 80-20 lifestyle and how she strikes the balance between eating well and feeling well here.
