How Humans Heal

In this episode we talk about stress and how to recover from it.   First, we must acknowledge that being human involves exposure to stress!    Research shows that over 60% of us had an adverse childhood event and at least 70% of us have experienced a major stress loss or trauma in adulthood.    When we exist as humans in these stressful environments it starts to feel normal to be stressed.     In fact, we can become addicted to feeling stressed and so we get stuck in stress mode. Our bodies’ cortisol and adrenaline levels get imbalanced, and our...

How Humans Heal

I consider myself to be a highly sensitive person – both in terms of my nervous system and in terms of how I respond to changes and substances.     I didn’t learn about being a highly sensitive person in medical school, however in the 1990s two psychologists – Elaine Aron and Arthur Aron – wrote a book called “The Highly Sensitive Person” in which they defined what it is to have a more sensitive emotional response to what is happening around us.    I have identified a somewhat different version of a highly sensitive person, and as far as I know, I’ve not...

#120 Solving the Mystery of Leaky Gut with Dr. Doni! show art #120 Solving the Mystery of Leaky Gut with Dr. Doni!

How Humans Heal

I’ve been talking about leaky gut since about 2002. At the time, I was experiencing severe migraines, and my daughter (whom I was breastfeeding) had severe colic. That’s when I figured out that I had leaky gut, and I had to find a way to help us both. I tried every kind of food panel and diet change, and experienced minimal benefits, until I found a lab that ran a highly accurate IgA and IgG panel and saw that I was reacting to many of the foods I ate. One of the most common misconceptions is that there is something wrong with the food panel, but that is far from the truth. The truth –...

How Humans Heal

In this episode of How Humans Heal I introduce myself and how I became interested in nutrition, naturopathic medicine, women’s health, and stress.     Ultimately, more than 90% of health issues are caused by stress.     If we want to be living longer and maintaining the highest quality of life, we need to be doing everything we can to counteract the effects of stress on our body, mind, and spirit.     It was what I learned from women in labor that helped me define my theory of how to help humans recover from stress, and eventually to identify my...

How Humans Heal

In this inspiring interview, I had the opportunity to talk to Julie Michelson [@Julie.Michelson], functional medicine health coach, who reversed rheumatoid arthritis herself.     She talks about how difficult it was to have severe joint pain and on 10 prescription medications for 11 years, while taking care of her children.     I know there are thousands of people suffering with autoimmune conditions who are – like Julie – being told by their doctors that there is nothing they can do to reverse it.     When her son was diagnosed with Celiac...

When do you ever get to hear an OB/GYN say that there’s a way to reverse the effects of menopause?  

 

Well you’re going to hear that, and so much more that is going to surprise and inspire you, in this episode of How Humans Heal where I interview Dr. Anna Cabeca, [@thegirlfrienddoctor].  

 

She shares how she went from being in pain, overweight, and miserable… wondering whether life was worth it… to feeling her healthiest self when she decided to change her diet.  

 

 

Can the food we choose to eat, and when we eat it, really make that much of a difference?  

 

Absolutely!  

 

Dr. Anna has since written several book, including The Hormone Fix, Keto-Green 16, and now she is celebrating the release of her newest book, Menupause.  



In Menupause she lays out 5 different menu plans, with recipes and full-color pictures. The menus are intended to match your needs, whether you are wanting to start with a detox, a plant-based diet, a keto menu, or to carb-up. You could also work your way through each of her 6-day menus and eat your way to health! 

 

 

Menopause (perimenopause to menopause) happens between ages 35 and 55, and is associated with various changes in women’s health, from weight gain, fatigue, sleep issues, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness, to increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and dementia. 

 

Dr. Anna’s mission is to help you put a stop to these health issues and regain your vibrancy and longevity.  

 

If this is speaking to you, be sure to order her book – MenuPause – at the usual book sellers and visit her website, DrAnna.com for support and encouragement.
