Healing with Hilery - A Veteran's Tribute
Inflammation and Depression: The Ignored Link
In this episode, Nicole Chenard, MS, RD, LDN explores the often ignored link between inflammation and depression. The COVID-19 pandemic uniquely impacted our ability to work, gather, and communicate, and subsequently heightened feelings of fear, anxiety, and loneliness. While many medical professionals have turned to prescribing anti-depressants to treat these symptoms, Nicole dives into reasons why this may not be an effective first approach for everyone. Fear, stress, and anxiety can stimulate an inflammatory response in the body, and the solution may not lie in pharmaceutical prescriptions, but in activities we can plan to do every day, like eating an anti-inflammatory diet and planning consistent physical activity, to help alter our body's pH and our nervous systems. Tune in this week to learn how to take steps to notice and decrease inflammation in YOUR body today.

Master Chef Finalist Nick DiGiovanni breaks the internet with TikTok, travel and what's coming out of his chef sleeves next!
On this episode, Nicole Chenard interviews Nick DiGiovanni, a chef on YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram with 14 million followers. He was selected to Forbes 30 under 30, a finalist on MasterChef Season 10, and has several business ventures including Osmo Salt. Nick DiGiovanni is one of TikTok's top U.S. food creators with 8 million followers and more than 250 million monthly views. He was the youngest-ever finalist on MasterChef and finished third during Season 10. He’s worked in several restaurants including a 3 Michelin Star restaurant called Benu in San Francisco, CA. The Harvard graduate is currently deferring his enrollment in Harvard Business School's 2+2 program so he can focus on growing his brand and several ongoing projects.
Nicole has personally known Nick since he interned for her while she was creating nutrition programs for Massachusetts General Hospital and serving as the Wellness Director at the John Nagle Co. As an outstanding intern, he also helped her with the Boston Fisheries Foundation's Boston Seafood Festival several years back. Since Nick is such a big star now, Nicole likes to joke around that she produced his first video, which is on YouTube. Nick and Nicole produced their own nutrition video without the help of professionals (we've come a long way!) and had a lot of fun recording it. Created for 9/11 veterans and their families, the video, "Improve Your Mood with Food," describes the benefits of specific foods and nutrients for emotional wellbeing, as in decreasing depression and anxiety and increasing calm and happy. If you haven't checked it out yet, it's on YouTube, listed on the Major League Nutrition channel. We hope you like it!
