The Path to Empowerment During Menopause (and Menstruation) with Patti Garland
As girls and women we are blessed to experience menstruation, also known as our period, or our cycle. As we experience life, we will all inevitably hit a point where we hit menopause (as if the period wasn't hard enough to get used to, now we have to get used to NOT having it). Today I talk real and raw with weight loss wellness coach Patti Garland. I hope you find today's episode valuable. If you would like more information on Patti or myself, please visit the links below! Thank you so much for your consistent support, stay rooted!
Okay, so a functional medicine doctor looks at medicine, from a perspective of what can you do? How can what changes can you make in your life, to heal yourself? So this doctor that I went to is also a meta medical doctor. So if I needed a prescription medication, medication, she could give me a prescription medication. But most prescription medications are designed to help you with symptoms. Yeah, not necessarily to get to the root cause of what's going on, and then to heal that. And with her, and with me, the root cause of my problem was my gut microbiome from all those years when I was on antibiotics, and so with making lifestyle changes, and making major changes and how I ate and taking some supplements, but only for a short period of time, made a huge difference very quickly. And what was even better, you know, I mean, when I when I went to see her, I was no longer I no longer had pneumonia, but I was exhausted. I was absolutely exhausted. See, I wasn't assimilating any of my nutrients because I was eating nutrients that were bad for me the wrong foods for me. So anyway, it was pretty amazing. It was an amazing experience. She was wonderful doctor. And so I'm grateful that ever did that. But then, you know, 15 years goes by, and menopause begins to hit. And my amped up personality really, really is what caused my menopause to be so dysregulated that's what I call it. It was very dysregulated. And now that I know, I could see I can go back and see that certainly my monthly periods. They were I always had terrible cramps. I was always hormonally imbalanced. And it was all because of this kind of type A personality that I have that I you know, I just was I was totally out of balance. My hormones were out of balance because my lifestyle was out of balance.
Yeah, had I known? You know, what I know now not just about hormone balance, but about lifestyle. And what a what a big. Although I also wondered, I think back to when I was 25 I don't know if somebody would have been able to convince me to, you know, to make the changes that I really should have made. But it but had I known then that what I was experiencing with these, you know, really big peaks and valleys of harm of have moods. That was that was such an indication that my life was out of balance. Not that yes, of course my hormones were out of balance. They were out of balance because my life was out of balance. And, and that's what I learned in perimenopause as I approached menopause, but I was experiencing a difficult dysregulated menopause.

If you are ready to show up as your complete self, its time to start getting real with yourself. Lean into this episode with an open heart, with an open mind, or don't. Its your choice I guess.

Depression, Anxiety and the Nervous System - Spoken word + Guided Meditation
*Disclaimer: trigger warning, may not be appropriate for all ages, all people. Listen at your own discretion.*
Many of us who have struggled through depression or anxiety haven't actually been told why they are experiencing such heavy and difficult symptoms. Mental illness often doesn't look nearly as difficult as it is. Our nervous system sometimes actually makes things harder for us by reacting and overreacting to some situations where no reaction may have sufficed. Our body is not responding in such a way that allows you to remain calm. Much of this comes from childhood coping mechanisms that we are totally unaware of. So by recognizing the energies and going deeper into them in the moment, we allow ourselves the opportunity to see just how much we actually over power these emotions. It won't be easy. But if you are ready for the challenge of a lifetime, dive in! I'll show you how I swim through these muggy waters and rise to the top like a beautiful lotus.
