Brute barracudas

Uncategorized Nov 11, 2019

I was watching the new Jack Ryan series the other day ...yes, I do watch shows.  But I noticed again, the female spy was portrayed as the sexy seductress, willing to use her feminine charms to gain information and get what she wants and she could take a beating as well as any of the male characters. 

What it made me think of isn't so much the sexualized nature of women but the fact that the things given for us to aspire to are either:

Brute force and iron will...push through no matter what


Be a certain variety of sexy, thin and beautiful or not get anywhere

It's no wonder we chase external barometers of our health.  So many women have grown so accustomed to feeling poorly that they are willing to do crazy things to look better even if they don't cause them to feel better, just to keep up with these external ideals.

Some examples from people I have actually known:

A woman who was tired, angry, depressed and lonely in her marriage who got breast...

Can you be done with doctors?

Uncategorized Nov 07, 2019

When medicine has termed the following issues as simply aging, depression or "hormones", you know women are not being treated as sacred:

Unexplained weight gain (as in your food didn't change)






Foggy Brain

Mental sluggishness

These are REAL problems, not the result of aging, or depression or just hormones.

We need to remember our Divine feminine nature, our brilliant body and its inherent magic.

We need to be honored for the lives we live, constantly serving, planning, preparing and pushing forward to hold space for tomorrow.

We cannot be allowed to succumb to being tired as a state of being, because that tired has emerged from lives where taking a break is now synonymous with:




And a sense of failure 

We cannot let misguided doctors using outdated models dispel what we experience as "in our head" when it is in fact in our cells.

We, you...have the right to heal, to thrive,...

You can choose to avoid cancer?

Uncategorized Oct 21, 2019

There's a lie that is ruining the lives of women every single day...and it goes something like this. 

If I choose to advocate for my own healing, by addressing my exhaustion, I will deprive the people in my life of something. 

As women, one of the teachings we've inadvertently received is we must be willing to do everything that we can for what we love, have taken on or have committed to. 

Most women work more than one job...their career, home, kids, grandkids, spouses, and community obligations.  

They take pride in it…

I can multitask 

I can prep dinner while answering email and helping kids with homework.

I am a superstar...I get to the gym by 5 every day, even when I am tired.

Over and over, agreeing to one more thing...despite having to push to do so, despite having a headache, despite needing to rest.

We as women have collectively decided if we aren't overextended, we aren't living.

And we hide it! We mask our...

You Can Choose...

Uncategorized Oct 18, 2019

I was listening to NPR the other day and they were discussing technological gadgets that can make our lives better and the guy speaking was talking about a gadget that made it easier for you to keep track of how many times a day you had to take a particular prescription med and then another gadget that was his blood sugar monitor that spoke to him and then could download the information to a database which his physicians could then also access.

What really struck me was when he said, many people today, myself included, are dealing with diabetes...and I thought to myself, when did it become so normal for us to have chronic diseases?

When did we transform our conversations about our health into an acceptable level of illness as normal?

I thought, well, of course, that's how we live now, think about it…. I’ve had people proudly proclaim to me when they're above 50 and not on any medications.

It is so rare to be over 50 and not on meds we proclaim it like a badge we...

What does a healthy woman look like?

What does a healthy woman look like? 

What's the true picture of a healthy woman? 

If you open glamour or vogue, they're going to list off things like percent body fat and weight. 

Because we've all become so used to these parameters, we too have adopted them as our image of a healthy woman. 

But I'm going to break the mold and say that's not necessarily true. In fact, just because you're really low in body fat percentage does not mean you're healthy. 

There are a lot of athletes, professional athletes even who come out and tell us how they've gotten sick. Remember when Lance Armstrong, (not that he's a woman) got prostate cancer? 

I'm sure his body fat percentage was quite low. He certainly was lean,  and was not overweight in any way, shape or form. And yet there he was with cancer. 

So what does that say about those topics, those issues, those parameters?

A healthy woman will have a couple of characteristics in common...

Most Thyroid Plans Kill The Thyroid

Uncategorized Sep 24, 2019

Your thyroid treatment plan might actually be wrecking your thyroid.
There's a lot of nuance to thyroid regulation.  But so much of the time because of medicine's reductionist methods, Thyroid is largely considered only as to if hormones are being made or not.
That is the totality of the discussion. So as a result, a lot of docs will prescribe levothyroxine or Synthroid, maybe armor, but that's never going to be enough and in most people it's ineffective at best.

You need to understand that TSH (the most tested Thyroid value) is just a measure of if the pituitary is being signaled.  But, that's only one small piece.
After that, The gland has to produce thyroid hormone that has to be able to leave the gland, The inactive T4 which has been produced then has to be converted to the active form, T3. The active form has to be able to reach the cell, The cell then has to be able to enact its message
But, doctors rarely care about the steps beyond production and conversion.
In many...

Are You Sabotaging your life?

Uncategorized Sep 06, 2019

There's a quote by Candace Pert, author of Molecules of emotion that says 
“Body and mind are one, the body is the actual outward manifestation in a physical space of the mind”.

Really powerful words, especially when we start to contemplate how that relates to us.

If I am exhausted, if I'm tired, if I'm carrying extra weight, if I have headaches, digestive problems, low libido, thyroid issues, adrenal issues, autoimmune issues, heart disease, arterial plaque, diabetes, we've been taught to contemplate those as isolated events associated with one organ, one system.

Which is why we rabidly dive into dietary plans, be they autoimmune or super restrictive for weight loss. We dive into supplements...this one has been said to lower Leptin levels, this one adjusts blood sugar, this one is a master life-altering antioxidant.

Or we dive into visualization….visualizing ourselves healed….but we never change the patterns to allow it to be so.

Rarely do...

So much of the time we believe our body must change to meet our ideals...

Uncategorized Aug 29, 2019

So much of the time we believe our body must change to meet our ideals. 

I'm here to tell you an uncomfortable truth, it’s not your body that must change, it's you. Your body is tired, it hurts and it doesn’t know what to do anymore. 

For our entire lives, all we've gotten were messages of how it should look, feel and be by someone else's standards. This whole world thinks the means to healing is control, subduing, making, forcing... shoving harder, and cutting out more of what keeps us happy, alive and present.

We live our lives by this really odd paradigm where we push, push and push, never realizing this is why we see so many sick and exhausted people over the age of 40. It's not because they did it wrong, it's because they did it just like you.... believing the media, trying the newest fads and trusting those who gain the most from our sicknesses.

We are told we just need to reign in the weight and this will all work out. When in reality, the act...
