Estrogen and Your Liver - Ep. 024

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 024! Today Kylene’s episode is chock-full of helpful knowledge about how hormones work!

 

She’s teaching how your liver affects your hormones. We think of the liver as the detoxification organ. It flushes out heavy metals, toxins that you’re exposed to in the air (even hairspray), pesticides in your food, and even caffeine in your diet. 

 

The liver also does this same cleansing with your hormones. The liver is where your hormone metabolism occurs. There, the hormones can be activated into other compounds or deactivated and excreted from the body.

 

Kylene’s hormone testing takes a very close look at the sex hormones. She works with clients all over the country to order the simple lab tests which can be done at any clinic. Then, she reads the results and carefully corrects any imbalances you have. Here’s the skinny on some of the levels she’s looking for:

 

Estradiol is the main estrogen produced by the ovaries in pre-menopausal women and the second primary estrogen in men.

 

Estrone is the main estrogen in post-menopausal women and the primary source of estrogen in men.

 

Estriol is the estrogen that takes priority when a women is pregnant because it is produced in large amounts by the placenta. 

 

If you have a sluggish or over-burdened liver, estrogen can build up in the body and you could become estrogen dominant. You might be estrogen dominant if you have noticed fluid retention, low libido, difficult PMS, mood swings, sleep disturbances or weight gain.

 

To support the liver, we want to address gut health. Supplementation to support the liver is great, but it’s best to reduce inflammation from the diet right from the get-go. And, the biggest sources of inflammation for most people are gluten, processed dairy and refined sugar. 

 

Here are a few more ways to support the liver:

 

Fiber helps bind chemicals and toxins to eliminate them from the system. Soluble and insoluble, alike. Now, you don’t need to eat whole grains to get fiber. In fact, please don’t eat whole grains. If you eat beans, vegetables, nuts and seeds you’re set on the fiber front.

 

White rice may actually be more healthy than brown rice because the brown rice still contains the hull and it tends to irritate the gut more in many people.

 

Avoid caffeine and alcohol. Seriously. 

 

Reduce exposure to aluminum. Try out some natural deodorants until you find one that works for you. Kylene uses Primal Pit Paste.

Hormones, Cholesterol and Nutrients You Need! - Ep. 023

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 023! Today Kylene is teaching us all about the proper care and maintenance of your hormones. There are things that negatively affect hormones and there are nutrients that are beneficial for hormones, too. Let’s dive in!

 

Kylene is talking about progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and cortisol. These are your steroidal hormones and they are made from cholesterol.

 

You need cholesterol for hormone balance because it’s what your steroidal hormones are made out of. Low cholesterol diets of the past are not good for you. You may be skeptical if you’ve been told for years that cholesterol was bad. Research is now showing that the body creates its own cholesterol in much larger amounts than are contributed through diet. 85% of the cholesterol in the circulation system is produced by the liver. So, avoiding cholesterol in your foods won’t reduce the cholesterol levels in your blood very much. Go ahead and keep your egg yokes!

 

Things that negatively affect hormones are food sensitivities and gut flora issues. Food sensitivities and parasites alike can break through your gut lining, cause inflammation and ramping up your immune system. Read for yourself here:

 

https://kresserinstitute.com/gut-hormone-connection-gut-microbes-influence-estrogen-levels/

 

The nutrients you need for healthy hormones are: vitamin c, magnesium, selenium and zinc. Kylene gives us a few recommendations for healthy foods that will power our hormones. Just a few of them are strawberries, avocado, pumpkin seeds, sea weed, oysters, leafy greens, mushrooms, crab and beef liver supplements.

Food Sensitivities and Vacation! - Ep. 022

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 022! Kylene is fresh off her vacation with Patrick in the Dominican Republic and she’s back with some great clean eating tips. She’s going to teach us how to balance healthy eating and fun eating on vacation and how to reintroduce foods you’ve eliminated due to sensitivities.

 

Remember to decide ahead of time on your eating “negotiables” and “non-negotiables.” And, when you choose to indulge on a negotiable vacation indulgence, make sure that it’s something you’ll really enjoy and that the portion is small.

 

Many people who are interested in avoiding problematic foods get MRT food sensitivities testing. The testing shows you which foods negatively affect you by rating them on a scale of green to yellow to red. After you carefully eliminate any foods that appear in the yellow and red ranges for a set amount of time, you can try to reintroduce foods, while watching for any reactions.

 

Reintroducing foods like dairy, mushrooms and blueberries later may prove to be totally fine because the gut will have gone through some healing by avoiding these foods for several months and now may be able to tolerate them, especially in small doses. You may discover that your food sensitivities have diminished or gone away completely.

 

Kylene noticed this on her trip. She tried eating avocado, a food that she had been sensitive to in the past, and she had no reactions. She goes over the 3 main reasons why this was the case. 

 

  1. It could have been that her sensitivity diminished when she gave her body a break.
  2. It could have been the lower amount of stress she experienced on vacation.
  3. It could have been that the foods she ate had been grown, prepared and processed differently.

 

Being in a new place means eating foods with a new nutrient diversity, which could have been beneficial as well.  Most of our dry grains like corn and wheat in the United States are sprayed with glyphosate. Even in small amounts, glyphosate kills off your beneficial gut flora. Just remember that you’re eating what your food eats.

Clinical Aromatherapy with Amber Duncan - Ep. 020
 
 

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 020. Today Kylene welcomes guest Amber Duncan to talk about the safe use of essential oils. Amber is a life-long learner and a knowledge junkie in the functional medicine field. She shares her years of experience learning that aromatherapy is a form of complementary medical treatment, not alternative medical treatment.

 

There are new aromatherapy studies coming out all of the time, so using essential oils safely requires daily consultation of research.

 

Essential oils are chemical compounds made up of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, back bone, etc. The purpose of using them topically is to get a low and slow effect. Inhaling them yields an effect more quickly.

 

Amber explains how to know if you should use aromatherapy in the form of an atomic stick or diffusing it in the air. Diffusing the oils in the air would be like administering the oil to everyone in the home. And, Amber says that if you’re not reaching for the medicine cabinet you should not be reaching for oils.

 

Amber helps us understand when and how to safely use essential oils when pregnant, during delivery, when breastfeeding and with infants and children. You can reference super-helpful dilution charts are on her site.

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 19! Today you’re in for a special treat as Kylene and Patrick Terhune share insights into creating a meaningful marriage. Listen in to learn more about how to improve the relationships in your life for overall better health.

 

Kylene and Patrick have a pretty amazing marriage. Over the years, they have learned how to make a marriage successful, loving and fulfilling. Today they share the best practices they’ve discovered. Many of these lessons where learned by hard experience, and they share their honest histories in each of their first marriages. “The best relationship is going to be when you have two solid individuals who know who they are who come together to support each other.”

 

1. Communication is key. You have to tell your partner what you like about them!

 

2. Respect is so important. If you have something you want to bring up with spouse, make sure you bring it up at a good time.

 

3. The quality of not being a “yeller” is a choice. If your spouse is angry choose not to meet them at their level of frustration. 

 

4. Speak positively about your spouse. It’s quite unattractive to see someone complaining about their spouse to their friends.

 

Among the other pillars of good health including nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental health, etc., you’ll find that healthy relationships are a super-important factor in living a happy life. We hope these great marriage tips and stories help you in your relationships!

The Living Well Code with Lisa McCoskey - Ep. 018

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 018. Today Kylene Terhune brings on special guest, Lisa McCoskey. Lisa is a Nutritional Consultant, Toxin-free Lifestyle Coach and Emotion Code Practitioner.  Listen in to learn more about how to find healing through the physical, emotional and spiritual sides of your health.

 

Lisa has found amazing healing power using The Emotion Code, which releases trapped, underlying emotions that are poisoning your energy. The power of energy in our bodies cannot be overestimated. We can see this clearly with the effects that stress has on illness, for example. Lisa uses prayer to release the trapped emotion and her patients can then heal and grow.

 

There are some simple lifestyle changes that Kylene and Lisa recommend to protect your energy. For your mind, stay away from the news, and for your body, realize that whatever you’re putting into your body is either helping your health or hurting it! Food journals help us connect how we feel with what we eat. We’re often not even in-tune with that connection and how we can take charge of how we feel by eating intuitively.

 

These 3 foods may not get a lot of attention in the media but they offer many real benefits:

  1. Drink celery water first thing in the morning.
  2. Eat wild blueberries
  3. Incorporate bone broth into your recipes.

 

You can find The Living Well code at amazon.com  https://amzn.to/2JuM7Jb

3 Diet Mentality Shifts - Ep. 017

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 017. We are so happy you’re with us today as Kylene makes a powerful case in the defense of real food! Eating is something that we do for our body that is good. Eating shouldn’t be something we feel guilty for. Your body needs real food and eating it should be a joy. Listen in to learn more!

 

There are so many different diet options available to you: high-fat diets, low-fat diets, vegetarianism, paleo, etc. 

 

She’s said it before and she’ll say it again: there is no one-size-fits-all diet. Kylene believes in #youturition which means that it’s her goal to find the best food plan for you. Intuitively you know this too, because your body has its own unique food sensitivities, genetics and lifestyle. 

 

Today Kylene presents 3 mentality shifts that will completely change the way you think about food.

 

  1. Eat real food. What is real food? It grew on a tree or in the ground. It was designed by God and nature, not a factory, to be broken down and digested. Read labels to find out if something is real.
  2. No macro nutrient is inherently bad. Macro nutrients are carbohydrates, fats and protein. Unless you are a body builder or athlete, counting macros is not necessary. (Side note: micro nutrients are all of the vitamins and minerals comprised in our food. ) Don’t vilify fat and carbohydrates. Your body desperately needs fat and carbohydrates. As long as you are eating real foods, you don’t need to obsess over portion control with fats and carbohydrates. Eating processed foods is what created the need for the concept of dieting as we know it, so if you cut that out of the equation you free yourself.
  3. Think about minimums, not maximums. There is an abundance of food you can and should be eating every day. Focus on what you can feed your body! Be sure your food serves you, not enslaves you!

How Stress Affects Your Health With Reed Davis - Ep. 016

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 016. Today Kylene Terhune proudly welcomes the Reed Davis who is the Founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition. Over the course of 20 years he has developed a system of treating disease in the body and restoring the birthright of health and happiness. The best part about what FDNs do, though, is that it is actually practical!  Tune in to learn more.

With a background in environmental law and a curiosity for the effects the environment has on people. Reed has become a strong force in the forefront of the world of health. He has a passion for helping people. He is a nutritional therapist who seeks clues to alleviate clients’ health complaints and he teaches others how to do it too! 

Here’s how his Dress for Health success program works:

Diet

Rest

Exercise

Stress reduction

Supplementation

We talk in detail about implementing all of these lifestyle choices, but we dive deep into our discussion on stress reduction because it is the most underestimated pillar of health.

There are three types of stressors: 

  1. Mental/Emotional
  2. Trauma
  3. Chemical/Biochemical/Environment

Some of these stressors we can eliminated from our lives and others, in this modern world, we simply can’t. Here are tools Reed Davis and Kylene Terhune use to counter stress: 

Live in gratitude. Choose positivity. Seek chiropractic care for alignment and for the nervous system. Try acupuncture to get your energy flowing. When you’re well enough, work out. Have good posture, balance and flexibility. On the biochemical side, diet is huge because eating foods that you’re sensitive to is a tremendous stressor. 

Let’s talk about hormones. We know that cortisol breaks the body down and keeps your blood sugar elevated. That’s why DHEA, the master regulator to cortisol, is so vital. FDNs find healing opportunities more quickly, that doctors aren’t diagnosing. An FDN’s protocol addresses every cell, tissue, organ and system.

What an inspiring interview! Listen to the full episode to hear why no breakfast is better than a bad breakfast and how you can certify to become an FDN. Thanks for tuning in today and we'll be back next week!

Fast and Easy Meals - Ep. 015

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 015. Today Kylene Terhune is sharing all of her most popular tips on fast and easy meals. Kylene has been on the look out for the best healthy recipes for years and her meal plans are amazing. Tune in to learn more! 

 

First off, she has a couple of programs coming up in July: her Get Gutsy Program and her Hormone Hacker Program. 

 

Gut health is a critical foundation to a healthy lifestyle. The Get Gutsy Program isn’t necessarily a detox, diet or weight loss plan, but weight loss is definitely a happy side effect.   

 

The Hormone Hacker Program is for anyone who has noticed high stress, weight loss resistance, acne, or irregular periods. Hormone balance is the answer!

 

Now on to one questions Kylene is asked most frequently! “What do you eat?”

 

Follow her on Instagram @thetinyfitdiva to see what she’s eating and what she’s cooking each day. She’s giving us the run down right now!

 

For breakfast. We need to get away from sugary, starchy and heavily-processed carbohydrate breakfast foods. We’re talking about Pop-tarts, toast, and cereal. Those foods just set you up for a blood sugar roller coaster. They increase your blood glucose levels and you’ll be dipping by mid-morning. Kylene eats vegetables, healthy fats and proteins for breakfast. Sauerkraut is the bees knees. You heard it here first! It’s like taking a probiotic, but it’s guaranteed to get through your entire system because it’s in a whole food form. She eats a quarter-half cup per day. Try it with eggs and salsa! Other breakfast options include homemade breads or paleo muffins. There are amazing recipes here:

 

https://elanaspantry.com/

https://againstallgrain.com/

 

For lunch: The most obvious answer is to heat up last night’s dinner leftovers. For those of you who may be crunched for time, this is a very helpful system. Heating up leftovers in the microwave is totally fine. You don’t have to feel guilty about using a microwave. Science is back from deliberation and we’re good to go!

 

For dinner: Plan a vegetable and protein combo. Use your crock pot or insta pot to whip up soups, stews and casseroles. Make lots so there are leftovers. You can even freeze extra servings!

 

For snacks: Keep it simple. Kylene loves to snack on apples, nuts, seeds and the Chocolate-Vegan Shakeology shakes.

 

Here’s a Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding Recipe that is a great go-to:

 

1 can of full fat coconut milk

1/4 cup of chia seeds, whole or ground up

2 T honey

1/4 C. cocoa powder (optional)

 

Mix well, refrigerate overnight and enjoy!

 

Kylene’s last tip for successful healthy eating is to set aside a little meal prep time over the weekend. Do yourself a favor and make healthy eating fun!

Metabolism, Stress and Hormones Demystified with Dr. Jade Teta - Ep. 014

Welcome back for another amazing podcast! Today your very own Tiny Fit Diva, Kylene Terhune is interviewing Integrative Physician Jade Teta, demystifying metabolism, stress and hormones. Tune in to learn more!

Jade is an Integrative Physician, Author and Cofounder of Metabolic Effect. He is an inspiring guide on the journey of human health and self development.

Let’s talk about female metabolism. A woman’s body is designed to create life. Women have narrow and sensitive stress barometer. It’s asking, "Am I healthy enough to have a baby, carry it to term and support it?” So, issues with hunger, energy, cravings, and low libido, are a sign that your metabolism is not that happy with you. This is why fasting Keto diets or too much cardio might not work for you while they may work just fine for someone else. 

We can learn a lot by taking a close look at the menstrual cycle. On days 1-14 estrogen dominates. Estrogen is a stress shield. It helps you hold on to muscle so you can eat more and you can exercise hard. The body is saying let’s prepare the body for implantation. On days 14-28 the body wants to calm down and chill. 

Let’s look at how metabolism is affected by a woman’s cycle and ways women are sabotaging their metabolism. The biggest answer here is stress. Women have a lot of pressure to present a certain way, to look good and to be smart, make money, manage the household and be a good mom, and they don’t want to ask for help a lot. It’s amazing! Women should switch out of the mindset of doing and being everything. Remember: you cannot do extreme things for extreme periods of time.

How does stress feel?  Cortisol is a stress hormone that causes cravings. If you’re choosing comfort foods over salad. If your libido is low, your body may being telling you that it isn’t fit reproduce. Looking at if from a biochemistry point of view: you can’t feel cortisol. The wired feeling that you feel when you’re stressed, that’s adrenaline. That’s short term. The body can deal with that nicely, that kind of anxiety and be dealt with with some exercise. Long term stress, or cortisol, can be worked through with walking. hot baths, epsom salt baths, sauna time, power naps and physical affection. Let you metabolism know that it has the resources it needs.

What kind of exercise suits you? Exercise enough so that you feel energized but not exhausted. Start with 3 times per week and listen to your body. Jade teaches how to tell if running is the right exercise for your metabolism type. First of all, the objective of exercise is not to loose weight; it is to feel tighter and more athletic. The diet aspect of your health plan is what will help the fat fall off. Jade recommends a vegetable-based diet with lean protein to keep you full. Research is not clear on fat and starch. 

What can you look for on a label? Real food yes is always best, but when you are on-the-go, which convenient foods are the most likely to replicate “real food.”

What we do know is that we can identify the aspects of “real food” so that you can make sure to mimic that in your diet. Look for foods that are high in fiber and protein, and low in starch, fat and sugar. 

How do you manage your hunger? You should be able to feel hungry, ride that wave and have it dissipate. It’s a process of slowly controlling things. Fasting can be beneficial because you learn to control hunger and manage that feeling. Fasting is just one of the tools you can use, but it’s not the only tool in your tool box. Again, your metabolism will want you to change it up over time. 

In all things Jade recommends being open to new ideas. Check him out at: http://jadeteta.com/

Gut Health and Your Microbiome - Ep. 013

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast! This morning in Episode 013 your host Kylene Terhune explains everything you need to know about gut health. Kylene can work with people all over the US and Canada, using lab testing, to help restore balance to your microbiome.

 

Your microbiome is the name for the entire collection of bacteria that live in and on your body. Your microbiome has a high influence on the immune system, so this is super crucial. You want your microbiome to be balanced with a good ratio of good and bad bacteria. Bad bacteria need to be kept in check. They can easily overgrow and offset the good ratio.

 

Here are some signs and symptoms that you might have a microbiome imbalance. Kylene explains that often digestive issues, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease and brain fog are just a few. 

 

The use of antibiotics can throw off your healthy balance of good and bad bacteria because it wipes out everything at the same time.

 

Kylene shares some really good healthy gut tips to think about for expectant moms.

 

Stress maintenance is critically important to healing the gut. Kylene’s three-step process for healing is: Remove, Repair, Restore. E-mail Kylene to get your gut health back in balance!

Through her journey she learned to invest in herself. That’s how she found real abundance. Her tips to other women are to prioritize consistency, to surround themselves with creativity and to build what she calls “pre-emptive cheating” into their eating plan.

As a student of all things health, Kylene wants to share some outside-of-the-box health methods, so today she and her husband Patrick Terhune welcome special guest Dr. Andrew Dyer, Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Nutritionist. Dr. Dyer has practiced medicine for 13 years at Take 2 Health Care. He’s joining us to talk about the perfect blend of Eastern medicine and Western medicine. Thanks for tuning in!

 

Dr. Dyer begins by explaining what your “chi” is. Your chi is the energy of your body and when it is out of alignment, the body won’t be able to function at its optimal level. 

 

He teaches us about the yin and yang of our organs and about the meridians, or pathways, that run along the body. 

 

Acupuncture, which is a form of Chinese medicine, is becoming more common in the western world and just like chiropractic medicine, is bringing new treatment options to individuals who suffer from health issues or chronic conditions. 

 

Try a balanced approach when it comes to your health. Western medicine has wonderful benefits to life-saving medicine, but eastern medicine also has much to offer with regard to promoting health. 

 

Are you wondering how to chose an acupuncturist or practitioner in your area? Dr. Dyer recommends that you should feel comfortable with the individual. Find out if they have case studies on their website that are more than just testimonials. Is there a friendly voice on the other end of the line who can let you know what to expect and who can give you some estimates on cost? And, board certification is always a plus. 

 

Thanks for tuning in today and we'll be back next week!
