Meet Your Herbs: Comfrey | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Meet Your Herbs: Comfrey | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Season 3 Episode 8: Today's is special Meet Your Herbs episode, when I introduce you to another of my favorite plant friends. Since this season's theme is Get Moving, this is an herb that will help you repair your injured bits if you've gotten moving a bit too much. She's blowsy, spiny, voluptuous, a bit of a misunderstood outcast. Meet controversial Comfrey- poor thing, it's not her fault. | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Meet Your Herbs: Solomon's Seal | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Meet Your Herbs: Solomon's Seal | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Season 3 Episode 4:: Today’s episode is a special one. It’s a Meet Your Herbs episode, because I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite friends- Solomon’s Seal. Here's the thing: If hydration is life, damage causes dryness. Stuck, constricted, restricted, uncomfortable, lingering dryness can make joints crack repeatedly, restrict our physical and emotional resilience and recovery, reduce circulation and healing, and impinge on our ability to shift between movements and from stillness to movement. Solomon's Seal root slowly, gently, gets down into the stuck dryness and goes to work. | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Who needs pelvic floor support? All kinds of people | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Season 3 Episode 3:: It can be really helpful to talk about who exactly needs pelvic floor support, because there's classic pelvic floor dysfunction issues, but there's also less obvious, or less common things that come up with less optimal pelvic floor positioning and support as well. So, while you might not actually have full blown pelvic floor dysfunction, a lot of things including the last year of the pandemic has been pushing people over the edge into less common pelvic floor issues. So that's we’re going to talk about today so you can figure out whether or not that means you.| Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

My Hypermobility Story | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Season 3 Episode 1:: I was in my 20’s, or maybe even my early 30’s, before I discovered that ‘hypermobility’ is a thing.

What Happens If You Don't Breathe Well? | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Season 2 Episode 10:: What happens if you don't breathe well? Now, if you don't breathe at all, you're going to pass out! If you breathe super shallowly, you're going to hyperventilate. But in between the extreme of not breathing enough and being a perfect breather, there's a lot of room for error, and there's a lot of room for interpretation, and most of us fall somewhere in there. | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Episode 9- Living Pains and Nearly Living Experiences | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Episode 9- Living Pains and Nearly Living Experiences | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig

Today's episode comes from a recent conversation I had about how we all have Living Pains, and that we tend to just accept them instead of doing the hard work to move past them because so many other things are on fire in front of us already. We often put our aches and pains and not-quite-healed places back into service of our regular lives, at least until a crisis point where we can't go on just getting by. When you're ready to face your Living Pains is where I come in, and I've got your back. Join me at paulasherbals.com for more. | Holistic Lifestyling with Paula Billig
