Welcome to my “Mini Mummy Makeoversary”!!!!!! In January 2020, I took the plunge and opted to have cosmetic surgery to repair an umbilical hernia and a tummy tuck. It was a big decision, not just financially but emotionally. My “high risk” pregnancies gave me 2 incredibly healthy, happy babies; 2 umbilical hernias, blood clots, varicose veins and a fair amount of excess abdominal skin! I didn’t like it. In fact, I HATED it. So…..I opted to go under the knife…..!!!!!! Then the Coronavirus hit.Having surgery was a financial sacrifice that I’m grateful I was fortunate enough to even consider, and now maintaining the great work of my doctor has been a challenge I haven’t been able to conquer. My fight to reverse my “quarantine 15” (or more like 40!!!!!) is ongoing, and I’m committed to this fight. I’m making changes to my diet and lifestyle, and I have mentors metaphorically holding my hand!!!!!Are you fighting a similar fight? Do you need a support network?

My guest today is Dr. Patricia Boulogne, Chiropractor, Coach, Public Speaker and author of the best seller, “Why Are You Sick, Fat and Tired?” She really opened my eyes with a lot of her findings that she has formulated from over 35 years of practicing functional medicine. She says “fix your health, fix your life….!” Dr Pat makes sense of our mind, body or soul complexities by finding a better way to get us unstuck, more productive, and with visible results! She says there are three reasons that people get sick: trauma, toxins and thoughts. It made me think, “what do I think, and how is that contributing to my health…?”🤔Dr Pat has helped thousands of people stop adapting their lifestyle to pain and chronic problems by focusing on the whole person. She had so many useful nuggets during our interview, including why we should all eat hotter foods; ice water slows down our digestion; the importance of food-combining, and that our organs are like a Swiss watch!!!!!!!!!School was truly in session.

My guest this week is Tobi Dragotta, mother of 3, homemaker, and my friend. Ever since our daughters met, 8 years ago at the Huntington Montessori, we became fast friends! We even enjoyed being pregnant at the same time. I went on to give birth to a healthy 8 pound 13 ounce baby boy. She lost her baby during the eighth month of pregnancy. The pain and anguish suffered by Tobi and her loved ones was indescribable…A year earlier, I suffered a miscarriage in my tenth week of pregnancy. The shock and the pain stopped me in my tracks. On a play date with a mutual friend and our children, Tobi’s words of comfort and encouragement filled me with the strength to try for another baby. So many women suffer through the pain of miscarriage- some feel shame, some feel guilt, many feel very alone. I didn't realize how common miscarriages are. Many women endure the heartbreak, and continue trying to fulfill their dream of having a baby. The joy of bringing a human into this world is like no other, and with motherhood, comes many other things…..During COVID, Tobi and her family joined the mass exodus out of New York City to return to her hometown of Colorado where her “village” is. As parents, these are definitely interesting times. The struggle to balance life is real, and the struggle to like what stares back at you in the mirror is ever-increasing, but this woman gave birth to all of her children at home! She certainly has the balls and my lifelong appreciation for those balls, and huge heart!!!Meet Tobi Dragotta.⭐️MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: 🌐 Epstein–Barr virus🌐 Breast Implant Illness🌐 Diastasis recti⭐️FOLLOW ME:https://linktr.ee/LaurettaNkwocha⭐️PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS, AND ANY OTHER EPISODES OF LIVING OUT LOUD with LAURETTA.⭐️LEAVE A REVIEW- TELL ME WHAT IS WORKING FOR YOU AND WHAT IS NOT! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/living-out-loud-with-lauretta/id1529634943♥️ SELF CARE ITEMS I’M LOVING THIS MONTH:Mr Kipling Deep Filled Minced Pies from London😋🇬🇧https://amzn.to/37OLDaWTree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub Coconut Limehttps://amzn.to/3lUJI9u
