Candace and Kyle have the pleasure of interviewing our good friend and colleague, Alison MCallister, N.D., a highly respected naturopath in Portland Oregon, who among other things, specializes in thyroid diseases which predominantly affect women to the tune of 5 to 20 times more than men. Because the prevalence of most thyroid diseases increases with age, we see hypothyroidism, Hashimotos autoimmunity and thyroid cancers occurring most often in menopausal women. All the more reason for us to delve into this subject at great length…so much so that we’ve split our conversation with Alison into two parts. We trust you will enjoy and learn from our conversation. This is the second part of our conversation. Part one of our conversation is here.

Taking a deep dive with a fitness expert: frank talk about the best ways to get and stay fit throughout the various phases and challenges of your life
In our latest episode, Kyle returns to the recording studio with her guest, Charli Nesbit, fitness expert and instructor. Kyle and Charli explore the importance of a regular exercise routine in women’s lives, in terms of achieving physical fitness, mental wellness and living a productive, happy and full life (Candace intentionally sat this episode out due to some Covid 19 concerns but she will be back next episode). Join our lively conversation as we answer your questions about exercise: how much, how often, what kind, how to mix it up, how to get and stay motivated, how to get back into a routine and even how to start one in the first place. This is one episode you don’t want to miss and will give you the inspiration that you need to stay active, even during these very challenging times.
In this third part of our wide-ranging discussion with functional nutritionist, Tracy Siegel, we get into the ground rules of good nutrition, what healthy eating is – and is not – and how different diet trends from keto to intermittent fasting stack up in terms of tangible health benefits.
When we recorded these episodes on the essentials of good nutrition for balancing our health and hormones, reducing obesity and preventing disease, little did we know how crucial this information would become in light of COVID-19…Emerging data during the pandemic tells us that the disease is much more lethal for those with obesity and/or diabetes, who are not only at greater risk of contracting the virus but of succumbing to it. News like this should serve as a powerful reminder that eating right and maintaining a healthy weight not only protects us but can save our lives!
Join us for a fast-moving conversation that we hope will answer your ‘weighty’ questions and cheer you up with the certainty in these uncertain times that good food is good medicine!
We’ve invited Tracy Siegel, functional nutritionist ‘extraordinaire’, back into the studio to discuss one of the most talked about diet trends out there these days – intermittent fasting. Tracy helps us understand why this way of eating has become all the rage: what it is, how it works and if it works! She also shows us the way, with a roadmap for setting up our own intermittent fasting routine for safe and effective weight loss. If you’ve been intrigued by all you’ve heard about intermittent fasting yet are unsure about its risks and benefits, much less how to try it out for yourself, you’ll want to tune in!

Before COVID 19 turned our worlds upside down, we went into the studio to record episodes on the major health issues of weight, diet, and lifestyle choices. Today we release the first of these. Now more than ever it is so important to prevent or reverse obesity (a huge risk factor for those with COVID 19). Optimal weight should be the goal of all of us in order to optimize our health span. Our guest is Tracy Siegel, functional nutritionist. And as always, we will link back to the importance of hormone balance. Join us for a lively and informative episode.
