#199 Healing HPV Before, During and After Pregnancy show art #199 Healing HPV Before, During and After Pregnancy

How Humans Heal

In this episode, I want to talk about HPV virus related to fertility, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. It is actually quite common for me, as a naturopathic doctor and midwife, to be helping women who are hoping for pregnancy soon, or might already be pregnant, and then test positive for HPV, and in some cases, abnormal cells. This is such an important time of women’s lives because it is right when they are needing their cervix and uterus to be healthy for a pregnancy. So it can be quite shocking to find out that HPV is present and potentially affecting their ability to get pregnant and...

#197 HPV Treatment Options: Proven Strategy To Get Rid Of HPV show art #197 HPV Treatment Options: Proven Strategy To Get Rid Of HPV

How Humans Heal

In this episode I cover naturopathic treatment for HPV virus. There are over 150 different strains of the HPV virus but I’m particularly interested in the high risk strains associated with cancer risk – cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancer for women, as well as oral and penile cancer for men. More and more women are finding out they are testing positive for high risk HPV. My work is to help those women go from fear to empowered that they can follow an effective strategy to get HPV to negative and prevent HPV-related cancer.  We need a comprehensive treatment protocol - not just one...

#195 Breaking Down the Myths Around HPV with Dr. Doni show art #195 Breaking Down the Myths Around HPV with Dr. Doni

How Humans Heal

In this episode I cover 5 most common myths when it comes to HPV or human papilloma virus. As a doctor, midwife and clinical nutritionist, I want to take a stand and be part of changing women's healthcare in order to prevent HPV-related cancers, which are actually increasing worldwide. It is absolutely outdated how the Western medical system handles HPV. Women turn to doctors hoping for solutions, only to be told to "wait and see" if it progresses to cancer or just get invasive surgical procedures which don't kill the virus. You deserve trained guidance in clearing HPV without fear, shame or...

#193 How Toxin Exposure Increases HPV Risk with Dr. Doni show art #193 How Toxin Exposure Increases HPV Risk with Dr. Doni

How Humans Heal

In this episode I'm going to be talking about HPV or human papilloma virus and how it is that toxins and toxin exposure are making you susceptible to this virus. Most times when we hear about the HPV virus, we hear about how to prevent exposure to the virus. Yes, there are many types of HPV virus that we're exposed to through sexual activity. However, studies show that most all of us are exposed to this virus at some point in our lives. The important focus, I find, is to look at what's making us susceptible to the HPV virus so that we can take steps to protect ourselves and prevent the...

“Women are not “mini men” and cannot fast the same way men do. But women can benefit from intermittent fasting when we make modifications based on our hormones.” 

 

Cynthia Thurlow [@cynthia_thurlow] nurse practitioner and CEO of Everyday Wellness Project shares from her experience as a practitioner and woman going through perimenopause how mastering intermittent fasting changed her life and health.  

 

 

In this episode of How Humans Heal, Cynthia shares insights from her new book, Intermittent Fasting Transformation. She says that instead of being overfed, we need to be strategically fed.  

 

Women need more options besides prescription medications and surgery. Instead of just taking another pill or hormone for a symptom. We can use food choices as powerful ways to address symptoms. By making small, sustainable changes in the way we feed ourselves, we can address inflammation, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, and other health issues caused by “metabolic inflexibility”.  

 

-

 

The bulk of us are not metabolic healthy, Cynthia says.  

 

Women are given reflux medications, anti-depressants, sleeping agents, and estrogen replacement. This creates a slippery slope and women are likely to feel wrecked by the time they hit perimenopause. In the sandwich generation, women are responsible for so much. We as women are care takers, but who is taking care of us.  

 

Cynthia is wanting to influence women’s lives in a sustainable way, and that is why she wrote her book.  

 

 

In this episode and in the book, Cynthis talks about:  

 

-As estrogen decreases, insulin sensitivity decreases 

 

-It shows up as fatigue, anxiety, weight gain, and menstrual irregularities  

 

-It used to be that restricting food and exercising more would work for weight loss, but in perimenopause, that stops working 

 

-She is not anti-carb; she encourages women to consume the right carbs 

 

-Intermittent fasting is free and flexible 

 

-Align food intake with chronobiology – our internal clock. Don’t eat within 3 hours of bedtime. Eat when it is light outside. 

 

-

 

We are so focused on fertility years, and then women feel invisible and unrepresented in perimenopause, and yet we spend half of our lives in that state. Over 35 to 40 years old, indiscretions of snacking or having a glass of wine is more likely to be an issue, increasing inflammation and blood sugar levels. 

 

We need to be eating less often and eat the way our bodies are designed to thrive. We would not be here as a species if our bodies could not go through periods of food accessibility and scarcity, and to use different types as fuel sources. Our bodies are not designed to be in a surplus of food all the time.  

 

When you go to eat a snack, ask yourself, am I really hungry? Or am I stressed or bored and either need to take a walk or go to sleep. 

 

Use of a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) – which is currently by prescription – is one of the most impactful things you can do. It can allow you to experiment with different foods to find out how your body responds to a certain meal. Being aware of what your blood sugar is doing can be hugely influential to understand how stress, travel, and certain foods affect you.  

 

 

As hard as it can be to admit to ourselves that foods we love are an issue, when we do, it can allow us to make drastic changes in our health and wellbeing.  

 

Listen in to the amazing conversation I had with my friend, Cynthia Thurlow, for more insights about how what you are eating, and when, could be affecting the way you feel.
