This week I’m joined by the lovely Bea Boas, an Brazilian native turned Texan that leads breathwork for a business mastermind I’m part of. She combines an interesting mix of theta healing + breathwork + vision.  She shares how she started her personal journey at the age of 12 after her grandmother died reading The Law of Attraction.  Now she serves entrepreneurs, helping them do the internal work that makes the difference.  We discussed Thetahealing®, changing behaviors and beliefs, science of calming the brain, bold action and BEST OF ALL, Bea takes us through a 15 minute breathwork session. You can find Bea at beatrizboas.com and https://www.instagram.com/beatrizvb/You can find Christa at https://www.instagram.com/anti.inflammatory.nutritionist/ and www.christabiegler.com and find all our recent happenings at https://www.christabiegler.com/links  ABOUT THE GUEST:  Beatriz helps high performing biz owners to take aligned action and create massive impact and income through personalized Thetabreathwork™.After working for almost 10 years in the marketing industry with successful brands, including Mindvalley, created her coaching business and own cutting-edge healing method using Thetahealing® to clear energetic patterns, and subconscious beliefs, and breathwork with hypnosis to fire new neural pathways for sustainable behavior change.

Hair loss, cold hands and feel and feeling tired are the big three for a sluggish thyroid. But relapsing gut issues, slow motility, sleep disruption, brain fog, slow metabolism, inflammation, low mood or anxiety, and dry skin can all be symptoms of a sluggish thyroid.  In this episode, we talk about how we’ve had to change how we’re approaching thyroid health in practice to ensure clients feel their best and maintain their results.  We talk about “dead ringers” of thyroid symptoms, blood versus tissue labs, thyroid nutrient cofactors and steps to take if you’re checking the boxes but not getting answers yet.  If you’re experiencing the issues mentioned in this episode (tired, gut symptoms, etc) and want testing + support, you can get it from our program Food Sensitivity Solutions & The Fatigue Fix. In it, we correct imbalances in the gut with testing and fill in the nutrient gaps (based on testing) depriving the thyroid of working properly.  ****Learn more & apply here: https://www.christabiegler.com/fss  This episode is sponsored by RUPA Health, my favorite lab concierge service that brings over 25 different functional medicine labs to one dashboard and saves me loads of time with it’s amazing interface and saves my clients money by being a low cost blood lab facilitating option.  If you're a health practitioner, get a free account at https://www.rupahealth.com and let them know I sent you! Books mentioned: Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms by Datis Kharrazian   Overcoming Thyroid Disorders by David Brownstein, MD Stop the Thyroid Maddness II, compiled and edited by Janie Bowthorpe

Today on The Less Stressed Life Podcast I am joined by Dr. Heather Finley as she bravely shares her story and struggles with GI issues, her educational adventure and how she became the practitioner she is today.

Dr. Heather struggled with her own gut health issues and chronic constipation for 2 decades which left her confused about food, her social life in shambles and food guilt at an all time high. She went to college to study to be a dietitian thinking she could solve her problems and instead of having clarity for why she was constipated, she was more confused than ever. When she started her doctorate program focused on a functional approach to clinical nutrition, a lightbulb went off in her head and her entire mindset towards nutrition and gut health completely transformed.This was when she began to realize that nutrition for gut health is so much more than what you eat. She then realized that individuals shouldn’t have to get a degree to fix their gut issues. That’s why, over the last decade, Dr. Heather has developed a proven approach to gut health that actually WORKS! – the gutTogether™ program. This 6-month program helps her clients get to the root cause of constipation and bloat so they can enjoy life with food freedom and confidence.WHERE TO FIND HEATHER:www.drheatherfinley.co www.instagram.com/gutbrain.nutrition https://www.pinterest.com/drheatherfinley/WHERE TO FIND CHRISTA:https://www.christabiegler.com/On IG:instagram.com/anti.inflammatory.nutritionist/Shop our Favoriteschristabiegler.com/shopLoving the podcast?

So that she could help people beyond just diet and nutrition, Danielle became a certified health and wellness coach. Managing stubborn migraine often requires a multimodality approach.Danielle lives in Florida with her husband and daughter and enjoys adventures with her family, spending time in her garden, and cooking for friends and family.WHERE TO FIND:migrainestrong.com@migrainestrongWHERE TO FIND CHRISTA:https://www.christabiegler.com/On IG:instagram.com/anti.inflammatory.nutritionist/Shop our Favoriteschristabiegler.com/shopLoving the podcast?

I polled people on IG last month and almost 80% of people that saw my story said they felt like they have food sensitivities. So, that’s a problem because once you dive into the intricacies of that there is a lot of nuances.So to help with this & answer the question I get in so many different flavors each week, I’m hosting a live training and Q&A session called “What should I eat? Answering your questions about food reactions and inflammation”.You can register at christabiegler.com/foodreactionsThis week I talk to Maria Claps, an FDN practitioner, and Kristin Johnson, a Board-certified nutritionist with Wise and Well about what is REALLY happening in perimenopause. An often neglected topic yet so important for those beginning or already in this transition time in their lives and also practitioners looking to help. Maria and Kristin candidly discuss symptoms, treatment, and lifestyle considerations for those in midlife mayhem.KEY TAKEAWAYS:Symptoms of declining hormones? Mood, sleep, weight, brain fog What is happening behind the scenes in menopausal transition perimenopause (including usual timeframe (the early 40s)Period changes during perimenopauseBiomarkers for inflammationEntering perimenopause in a lower inflammatory state will help ease symptoms for a smoother transitionWhat are common things we blame on "hormones" that are not hormonesFunctional decline of aging- what's normal, what's not as we age and our body changesHormone replacement therapyGUESTS SHARED HELPFUL TIPS ON:How to rehab your hormones/ adrenalsIdentifying what is going on in the cycle and how to support itUnderstanding that everyone's experience is very differentTips for women in midlife to optimize health and wellness (what are a few things women are doing that are keeping them stuck)ABOUT GUESTS:Maria Claps, an FDN practitioner, and Kristin Johnson, a Board-certified nutritionist, are plainspoken friends and practitioners who share a passion for women's health, especially women's health at midlife.
