Grit: Hormones, Hashimotos and Adrenal Fatigue Dr. Sadaf Jeelani

SHOW NOTES

“Hey hormones!! What the hell is going on?”

Dr. Sadaf Jeelani drops the truth about hormones and diseases and what’s causing weight retention.

Dr. Jeelani explains that you either have a disease process or…you don’t. Some common ones can be Hyperthyroidism or PCOS, and less common but more extreme, Cushings. [Make sure you listen so you can get all her really good smart science talk and find out if you should be concerned and what to do.]

And what about balancing your hormones? That’s a thing, right? Nope. You’ve just gotta trust your pituitary.

Balancing hormones is more of a wellness industry marketing catchphrase with no medical basis. *sheesh* That's a relief! You don't actually have to drop hundreds of dollars on supplements you see on Instagram.

The downer to this revelation is that the fix is boring and hard. And it's more of a forever lifestyle change than a “fix”. Yup. I’m gonna say it and so does Dr. Jeelani…the secret to feeling better is solid nutrition, consistent strength training and movement, better sleep, drinking water, and reducing stress.

Surprised? I’m sure you’re not. Dr. Jeelani brings on the info when it comes to the medical implications of obesity, fad diets, surgeries, and medication you don’t actually need.

So you heard it, people. There's no quick fix. Being healthy is a lifelong journey that takes positive choices and habits, day after day after day.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • I’m retaining weight…is there something medically wrong?
  • Can you actually balance your hormones?
  • Health and medical implications of obesity, fad diets, medications, and surgeries?
  • The secret’s out…how to be healthy forever.

Goal: Better Boners with Mindy Mylrea

SHOW NOTES

Don't let your penis disappear from sight! If you can't see it while standing, it's time to pump up your heart health.

Mindy Mylrea's book "The Plant Powered Penis" is changing the game of sexual organ health. After her husband's prostate cancer diagnosis, Mindy and her husband switched to a plant-based diet and movement-based lifestyle and never looked back.

The book not only covers penises (we’re talking lady health too), but also relationship tips, plant-based recipes, exercise advice…the list goes on. Along with evidence-based eating and science-backed advice, Mindy shares her experience of living a clutter-free life on the road with her husband in their RV, wrapped in fruits and veggies.

When it comes to penises…you either have one or you know one. Check out Mindy’s work and say fuck that to ‘normal’ (what’s normal anyway?) aging and health decline with her workshop, "One Day to Wellness" or her book "The Plant Based Penis".

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • How can a plant based diet improve penis health?
  • The effect, benefits, and temporary discomfort of changing your gut biome.
  • What is a Blue Zone and how can you replicate this lifestyle?
  • Essentialism: Cutting out the excess to make room for what matters.
  • Penis facts and stories for better organ health.

What surprised you most about the correlation between diet and sexual health?
