Meditation is such a wonderful tool for mind body connection and restoring youth. Kylene and Diana share mediation tips for all levels.

Another important women’s issue is understanding cycles and sex education. There is a great need for improvement in these areas and Diana strives to help women everywhere work through cycle struggles to learn what is healthy and normal.

Genetic Expression and MTHFR with Dr. Kendra Becker - Ep. 038

Have you always wondered what MTHFR means? Today is your lucky day! Welcome the The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast with your host Kylene Terhune! Today Dr. Kendra Becker is joining us on the show. She’s an Integrated Physician practicing in Waterford, Connecticut specializing in the MTHFR gene mutation, Fertility, Autism, Asthma, Allergies and Atopy (eczema).

Today’s episode is all about keeping healing at home! She began her career in medicine as a nurse before shifting to a Naturopathic education. Her practice focuses on individuality, pediatrics, and using Epigenetics (the study the environment’s influence on your genes to diagnose and treat). 

Genes can show whether you have a susceptibility to pesticides, wifi, certain chemicals, anesthesia or pharmaceuticals. This comes down to knowing if you have a sensitivity to and a difficulty processing toxins. Some people do have the ability to detox, so they can get away with eating processed goods like PopTarts. An activated MTHFR, though, means you’ll likely have trouble with Methylation (effectively elimination toxins from the body).

Everyone has a bucket to hold toxins that it can’t process and release, and once that bucket gets full, you’ll start to show symptoms of poor health. Everybody is different. 

Dr. Kendra Becker can help you find out if there is something in your genetic pre-disposition that she could support so that you can live the healthiest life possible based on your environment or help you know how to change your exposures or environment to support your genetics. And, just because you have a certain gene doesn’t mean it’s activated or turned on. The genetics load the gun but the environment pulls the trigger.

Dr. Kendra Becker has also written two books:

A Delicious Way to Heal the Gut https://www.amazon.com/Delicious-Way-Heal-Gut-Beckers/dp/1519282370/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539022477&sr=8-1&keywords=a+delicious+way+to+heal+the+gut

All You CAN Eat https://www.amazon.com/All-You-CAN-Kendra-Becker/dp/1732297401/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539022527&sr=8-1&keywords=all+you+can+eat+kendra+becker

Kylene and Kendra then discuss the recent studies showing links between the MTHFR gene and Down Syndrome. It completely makes sense that if you’re more susceptible to toxicity that we should be able to find this out so we can limit exposure.

Kendra talks about her stance on supplements and how they’re not her go-to solution most of the time. For example, if you’re too sensitive to take b12 and folate she knows how to prime the body to be able to absorb those better so you don’t feel sick. You have to introduce things gradually so the person can handle it mentally and their cells can handle it.

The Autoimmune Protocol With Angie Alt - Ep. 037

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast with your host Kylene Terhune! Today in Episode 37 Kylene welcomes Angie Alt. She’s a teacher, an autoimmune warrior and the author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook: Eating for all Phases of the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol.

The Autoimmune Protocol is intense. If you’re considering a 30, 60 or 90 day elimination phase our episode today will be super helpful.

Angie Alt endured several health issues including Lichen Sclerosus, Endometriosis and Secondary Infertility over the course of 11 years before she discovered the Autoimmune Protocol by reading Sarah Ballantyne’s blog The Paleo Mom.

Puberty, pregnancy, post partum and menopause are the higher-risk times of a woman’s life to develop an autoimmune disorder. This is due to the hormone changes that women undergo.

If you’re curious about prevention you can focus on sleep, eliminating stress and consuming nutrient-dense foods, but don’t think that you’re guilty of brining on an autoimmune disorder yourself if you haven’t always followed these prevention practices. 

Let’s get down to the brass tacks. AIP means no grains, legumes, dairy, eggs, nuts, seeds, chocolate, coffee, night shades. (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, etc.) 

AIP means yes to bone broth, fish, shell fish, organ meats, fermented foods, and more vegetables than a vegetarian. AIP means good sleep and stress management.

Should you begin your elimination phase slow and steady or go cold turkey? Kylene and Angie discuss how you can know which style is for you.

Go easy on yourself when you experience and struggle with sugar cravings. Don’t expect perfection.

Eat regularly because when you have low blood sugar you cannot easily out-will-power your body’s biology and the cravings. 

Then, there’s the reintroduction phase. This is when you carefully try one food at a time and watch for reactions. 

And lastly, Kylene and Angie answer listener questions about the autoimmune protocol, giving us even more insight into living with an autoimmune disorder.

Your Longevity Blueprint With Dr. Stephanie Gray - Ep. 036

Hello and Good morning from The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast! Today your host Kylene Terhune is bringing you Episode 36 where she welcomes Dr. Stephanie Gray, author of the book Your Longevity Blueprint. She’s also the owner of the Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic in Hiawatha, Iowa where she practices medicine and offers the most progressive functional medical testing options. Today she and Kylene dive deep into gut, hormone, and detox health.

Dr. Stephanie Gray tells us about her own health journey. She began to experience episodes of Tachycardia and learned for herself the importance of stress management. Kylene points out that our culture glorifies stress-inducing behaviors like staying up late and pushing through the day with coffee. The truth is that ignoring your body’s message to you that you’re tired is the main cause of many health problems.

Conventional medicine can be compared to the fire department. Their arsenal includes drugs or surgery. Dr. Stephanie Gray wanted to get to the root of her Tachycardia and not just submit to drug treatments indefinitely. Functional medicine tries to get to the root of the problem. That’s exactly why her husband and office manager encouraged her to write a book to clarify what she can do at her clinic to help patients get to the root cause of their problems, too.

All About Hashimoto's With Guillermo Ruiz - Ep. 031

Welcome to Episode 031 of The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast, featuring your host Kylene Terhune. Today Kylene welcomes guest Guillermo Ruiz to teach us how to reverse the symptoms of Hashimoto’s Disease and live a healthy life, even with an autoimmunity. 

 

Hashimoto’s Disease is an autoimmune disorder where your immune system attacks your thyroid. Once your body has shown that it has the ability to attack itself, it will always have that ability. While there may not be a cure for Hashimoto’s there are many ways to support your body and reverse some of the symptoms you’re facing.

 

Of course, nutrition is going to be really high up on that list of treatment plans. Listen in for specific guidelines to follow, and more importantly, a mindset to adopt when caring for yourself long term. Learn how to avoid orthorexia, a compulsion to obsess over healthy eating, and simply make a habit out of eating nutrient-rich foods.

Your Fitness Prescription With Igor Klibanov - Ep. 029

Welcome to the Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 29! Your favorite FDNP Kylene Terhune introduces a wonderful guest today who can teach you how to discover your personalized exercise plan. Meet Igor Klibanov who is a successful personal trainer and author of the book “Stop Exercising the Way You’re Doing it Now.”

 
 

 

Diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis and osteoporosis are chronic conditions that each tell us something about the way your body can gain the optimal benefits from exercise. This exercise prescription is called: FITT. Igor looks at: frequency, intensity, time, and type.

 

We need both strength training and cardio. Do you ever wonder, “What’s the right number of reps for me?” or, when doing cardio, “What kind of intervals are right for me?” Igor and Kylene discuss the best exercise plans for people with various chronic conditions.

 

 

We can also look at conditions like anxiety and depression. High intensity work outs make anxiety worse

and makes depression better. That’s good to know!

 

The bottom line is that, if you do it right exercise will physically and neurologically stimulate you in a way that is healing you and healthy for your body. 

 

When you go home from the gym, remember the 1:23 Rule. Make sure your lifestyle supports what you do in the gym as opposed to sabotaging it. 

 

Let’s look at hormones for cycling women: 

 

In the Follicular phase (days 1-14) estrogen is higher. You’re stronger and you can work out with a little more intensity. 

 

In the Luteal phase (days 15-28) progesterone is higher. This means that metabolism is higher, but keep in mind that cravings are also a little stronger. The last week of the cycle is when you may see PMS symptoms like cramps and mood changes. Exercise injury rates are higher now because elastin is released which looses ligaments. Don’t do intensive work outs or heavy weight training now; just cardio and light strength training.

 

Here’s where things can be uniquely tailored to your body. You have a biological signature and where you store your body fat tells us about your hormone profile. For example here are a few locations on the body and their corresponding hormones:

 

Triceps - testosterone

Upper back and love handles - insulin

Ribs - thyroid

Stomach - cortisol

Knee and calf - growth hormone

Quads, hamstrings, (essentially thighs) - estrogen

 

When working with clients, Igor finds out which three areas of the body are relatively higher in fat than other areas of your body. That’s how Igor can use your biological signature to design your personalized exercise plan.

 

Here’s an example of another interesting way your biological signature informs your optimal health. You can measure the fat between your shoulder blades to see how many carbohydrates you can tolerate.The more fat you have there, the fewer carbs you can tolerate. The less fat your have there the more carbs you can tolerate.

 

That leads us to the big question: Is spot fat reduction possible? Yes it is! Listen in to learn how to tailor your exercise routine to target fat on the areas of your body that need it the most!

You just have to look and listen to what you body is telling you!

Pregnancy, Allergies, Probiotics and more with Clinical Pharmacist Melody Hartzler - Ep. 027

Welcome to the Tiny Fit Diva Podcast! Kylene Terhune is your personal Functional Diagnostic Nutritional Practitioner and she’s brought a fantastic guest to the show today. Meet Melody Hartzler, a Clinical Pharmacist and probiotic expert! Today on Episode 27 Kylene and Melody dive deep into allergies, probiotics and supplementation, with extra-helpful information for moms and babies, too!

 

Gut health can require a bit of management to keep strong and balanced. Luckily for children, gut health can be restored pretty quickly because they don’t have as many years of damage to recover from, like some adults do.

 

First, let’s look at what pregnant moms can do for their baby. Studies are showing that mothers who have enough Omega 3s and Vitamin D tend to have children with fewer allergic disorders and wheezing. We know that Folic Acid and Folate are essential, but be sure to find out if you have the MTHFR gene, which would mean that you’ll need to take Methylated Folate instead of regular Folate.

 

Now, once the baby is born we can talk about how to best support the baby’s gut health through either breastfeeding or other great practices. Depending on your situation, you may be planning to breastfeed or you may be planning to use formula. If you can’t breastfeed, rest assured Melody has some super-healthy things you can do for your baby, too. If you’re on the fence, it may be worthwhile to try to breastfeed because babies are born with a leaky gut, (since they need to get proteins absorbed through their gut lining) and breastmilk has Pre-biotics which decrease the risk of allergies and asthma.

 

For Vitamin D for infants and toddlers, you can supplement safely with Gummy Sun Dots which contain Polypodium Leucotomos, a fern extract.

 

For Probiotics for infants, toddlers and women check out Klaire Labs products.

 

Kylene and Melody also discuss possibly correlations between the Lip-and-Tongue-Tie-Connection and other allergies and gut conditions.

Personalized Massage Therapy with Casey Hamby - Ep. 026

Welcome to the Tiny Fit Diva Podcast! Today your host Kylene Terhune welcomes special guest Casey Hamby to discuss the absolute best form of self care: the kind you do at the spa! That’s right  -  it’s spa day here on the podcast!

 

Self care is so important to your overall health. How many times have we heard that we need to put ourselves first? Relaxation won’t happen on its own. Casey and Kylene recommend actually scheduling time for self care. Let yourself breathe and relax. To help set the mood you can apply lavender oil to a cotton ball and keep it nearby.

 

Casey Hamby has been a massage therapist since 2002. She is the manager at Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Dayton, Ohio. They offer so many wonderful treatments including hot stone massage, cold stone facials, aromatherapy, waxing, peels and LED light treatments.

 

Today we talk about how to reduce your stress at home and work. Casey shares some amazing tips for dealing with pregnancy and postpartum. There are also some great spa treatments that can offer serious relief with allergies and sinus issues. 

 

Hydration is so important. A good massage therapist can tell from the way your skin and muscles feel and look how hydrated you are. Learn from a pro how massages work and how facials work and how estheticians work your skin from the inside out.

Stephanie Llacuna on Toxin-Free Living - Ep. 025

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 25 where your host Kylene Terhune is introducing us to another amazing guest to talk about healthy living! This week we’re focusing on toxin-free living. There are some things that we cannot control about our environments, but for the things we can control, like food and skincare products, we should try to limit our exposure to harmful chemicals. We want to be smart about this, though and not just fall for clever marketing campaigns.

 

Green washing is when a label tries to represent a food or a cleaning product as more healthy than it really is. If the terms “clean” or “organic” are used on a label, we may assume it’s toxin free, but it if you look at the ingredients you’ll see pernicious things.

 

Here are some tips to detox your environment:

 

The priority needs to be switching to an aluminum-free deodorant. Be patient as you find one that works with your body chemistry. Next, find a Flouride-free toothpaste.

 

Watch out for weed killer. Vinegar is great and there are some great baking soda alternatives, too.

 

For inside cleaning there is a cleaning version of vinegar that doesn’t smell as bad. 

 

Watch out for sunscreen that contains Oxybenzone and Octinoxate. A good zinc-based sunscreen is better, and avoid the spray-on sunscreens that expose you to breathing in those fumes.

 

If a product label lists “fragrance” or “natural flavors,” beware, as this can be referring to a multitude of unlisted ingredients. 

 

These days we may not have as much acute illness as people did two hundred years ago but we have a lot more chronic illness. Toxins assault us all day everyday so it’s no wonder. This is great information to try to protect ourselves.

 

Here are some tried and true recipes from Stephanie Llacuna:

 

Toxin-Free Weed Spray

1 Gallon Vinegar

2 Cups Epsom Salt

½ Cup (Toxin-free) Dish Soap
