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:

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.

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

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!
