My guest today, Lahana Vigliano, is the CEO of Nuvitru Wellness and a board-certified and holistic clinical nutritionist in Austin, TX. She’s here to answer all of our questions about stress – where does it come from, how can we reduce it, and what is it really doing in our bodies?She also asks some of her own – teaching us to question our food choices, what’s actually in your control, and what isn’t? It’s time to get honest with ourselves, and shame is not invited to the party.Our bodies are so evolutionarily driven that when stress crops up, we can’t distinguish if we’re being chased by a lion, or are just stuck in traffic. It’s only natural that women’s bodies would try to shut down ovulation in times of danger as those would, to our body, seem like a pretty bad time to bring a child into the world – right?!Lahana is wise beyond her years, sharing so many actionable tips in this one that you’ll want to grab a notepad. The key though, as she explains, is not letting your brand new anti-stress routine stress you out.

136. What is Functional Dentistry? Ask the Dentist! with Dr. Mark Burhenne

By now, you’ve heard of the gut biome and how critical those little bacteria are in supporting your overall wellbeing. Well, today, Dr. Mark Burhenne joins me to dive into even further detail with one specific, important, and very famous, part of our digestive system – our mouth!It’s about so much more than bad breath and coffee stains, although we cover the importance of the small stuff too.

134. Her Story: Ending the Shame Around Birth Control Breakup with Brooke Schattner

Brooke Schattner was on the pill since she was 16 – nearly a decade – and today she’s sharing her journey to leaving the pill behind and transitioning her way to FAM.Like so many women, Brooke got on the pill because it was just “the thing to do” in your teens.

Healing Hormones Hits: Learning to Honor + Trust Your Natural Cycle with Jessica Victoria

We’re revisiting one of our most popular episodes with Jessica Victoria, where we had an amazing conversation about learning how to honor and trust your natural cycle.Jessica Victoria has such a similar philosophy to me when it comes to women’s hormone health and fertility. She is a holistic nutrition practitioner and women’s health and hormones coach, and like many people that get into the field, her interest in hormone health started with her own health issues and realizing the potential side effects of birth control. When she quit taking birth control, she developed post-pill amenorrhea and didn’t start having her period for over two years. She began to document her journey on Instagram, including her pregnancy, and the rest is history. We touch on several topics, including syncing your habits to your cycle, why she doesn’t do diet plans, and not following strict rules. It always comes back to tuning into and listening to the body. Overly specific rules can do more harm than good. The best course of action is to take in what information you can, try it for yourself, and see what feels good to you and gets you the results you’re looking for.We Chat About:Helping women understand their bodiesSyncing to the different phases of your cycleNot believing in food rulesGetting your fertility on trackThe importance of keeping stress levels downNot following prescriptive adviceThe danger of labeling yourselfResources:jvictoriahealth.comInstagram: @jvictoriahealthConnect With Me:Join my FREE FAM Training: Prevent Pregnancy Naturally + Ditch the Pill Without FearFree Fertility CallInstagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

Mallory Whitmore is a mom of two, educator, advocate, and certified infant feeding tech. She’s the face behind The Formula Mom, an online platform that helps new parents make informed, confident, and supportive infant feeding decisions without all the guilt and shame.

Healing Hormones Hits: Supercharge Your Fertility with The Primemester Protocol with Dr. Cleopatra

Note: I have some amazing interviews lined up, but they aren’t ready yet! Instead of a new episode, we’re going to revisit one of the most popular episodes of “Healing Hormones” with Dr. Cleopatra. Enjoy!Dr. Cleopatra Kamperveen is a scientist and university professor who specializes in reproductive health and the transference of health from parents to children. Her personal story of growing up without a mother and feeling like she was meant to do something in her life with that experience led her to doing the work she does today as Fertility Strategist and Executive Director of The Fertility and Pregnancy Institute. Dr. Cleopatra pioneered the field of fertility biohacking and creating what she likes to call “Superbabies.” She provides fertility and pregnancy consultations to women and families, nationally and internationally, through her signature In Bloom programs, inner circle, and personalized, comprehensive one-on-one consulting. She’s conducted research on tens of thousands of women of all colors, ages, shapes, sizes, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, language preferences, and professions to examine how they transmit physical health and emotional wellbeing to their children. This is not all about food and supplements – we talk a lot about the mindset shifts that need to happen in order for our bodies to be ready to conceive. We literally have the power to change the quality and the expression of the genes that we pass down to our babies!We Chat About:Why there’s so much variance in fertilityThe role of negative self talkEpigeneticsHow the term “infertility” is often misleadingThe importance of fertility in our overall healthWhat the Primemester program entailsResources:Learn more: fertilitypregnancy.orgThe Primemester ProtocolInstagram: @doctor_cleopatraInstagram: @fertilitypregnancyConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - Learn how to support the four phases of your cycle!Private Hormone and FAM CoachingBook a Reiki SessionLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

70. The Fear of Getting Off Birth Control

There are so many reasons why women could be choosing to get off of birth control, but with that decision comes a lot of fear around the possible side effects on your body. On top of that, we’re prescribing the pill earlier and earlier in an effort to mask or get rid of challenging period symptoms. So when we get off the pill, are all of those symptoms going to come back? How your body reacts to this change is going to vary, but I’m going to break down how you can prepare for whatever happens with your body.We Chat About:The myth of birth control regulating your periodRebalancing your body after birth controlTests you can take to get a clear pictureWhat to expect when you get off the pillResources:Visit proovtest.refr.cc/nourishedwithnina to get $5 off a Proov Test kit!Visit tempdrop.com and use code NINA10 for 10% off all of their packages!Connect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - Learn how to support the 4 phases of your cycle!Private Hormone and FAM CoachingBook a Reiki SessionLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

69. The Importance of Progesterone + Your Fertility | with Amy Beckley

Amy Beckley is the founder and inventor of Proov, the first FDA-cleared test to confirm successful ovulation at home. If you’re not sure if you’re not having healthy ovulation and you need to confirm it, these tests are fantastic. Amy developed Proov after her own struggles with recurrent miscarriages and infertility before going through IVF to have her first son, who is now 10 years old. She realized that, although she was ovulating, she just wasn’t making enough progesterone for conception to successfully concur. She experimented with progesterone supplementation and that was enough to successfully conceive her daughter. She wanted to create a product that would help women in the same situation that she was in, and now she’s sharing her story to continue helping others.We Chat About:Amy’s fertility storyFinding the right doctorProgesterone supplementationHow Amy developed ProovMeasuring your progesterone levelsThe difference between dried urine testing and blood testingThe importance of a baseline testResources:proovtest.comVisit proovtest.refr.cc/nourishedwithnina to get $5 off a Proov Test kit!Instagram: @proovtestVisit tempdrop.com and use code Nina10 for 10% discount across all 3 of their packagesConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

We really get into the double-standard that comes with how we talk to women about the way their body is changing when they’re pregnant versus when they are not.

62. The Do’s + Don’ts of Working Out While Pregnant | with Taylor Merritt

Taylor Merritt is a personal trainer, an educator, and the founder of Sweaty as a Mother. She joins us to talk about movement and fitness within pregnancy. There’s a lot of information out there, both good and bad, and it’s hard to separate the two, so sometimes you just need to hear from someone who knows what they’re talking about. Before her first pregnancy, she thought her knowledge as a trainer would be fine to practice during pregnancy, but she ended up causing health issues and making things worse. She ended up getting certified in prenatal training, which was an incredibly eye-opening experience, and her second pregnancy went completely differently. She talks about what she learned during training, as well as personal experience, and what she teaches women now about staying healthy during pregnancy.We Chat About:The ways you have to train your body differently during pregnancyDiastasis recti, the separation of the six-pack muscles, and exercise do’s and don’tsOpening up the baby instead of restricting the babyWorking out for the right reasons during pregnancyRunning and cardio during pregnancyAddressing myths about working out while pregnantResources:sweatyasamother.comSweaty as a Mother Workout ProgramInstagram: @sweatyasamotherfunctionalpelvis.comConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

61. Making the Choice to be Kid-Free & Having Agency Over Your Body | with Emma Criswell

We’ve talked a lot about pregnancy and fertility on this podcast before, but there’s a whole segment out there that doesn’t get discussed as much: The child-free-by-choice women. Emma Criswell knew from a very young age that she did not want to have children. She’s a marketing executive out of Columbus, Ohio, but she spent her 20’s in New York City advocating for agency over her body and making her own decisions. After nine doctors and 14 years, she was finally able to get the elective sterilization surgery. This is a serious decision but one that is within a woman’s right to make, and often women are not given the agency over their bodies to make these decisions without doctors pushing back. Emma’s story is sure to resonate with those of you that feel unheard and, regardless of your stance, you’re sure to get some important takeaways.We Chat About:Making the decision to not have kidsThe right to have agency over your bodyFinding a doctor who will give you what you wantThe insensitivity of expecting women to have kidsFighting for your bodily autonomyHormone results after elective sterilizationConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

49. How to Start Putting Yourself First | with Liz Garster

Liz Garster is the former co-host of the former Find Your Shine podcast, which we hosted together before it became solely about women's hormones. She’s multi-passionate and has an addiction to certifications—she’s a certified financial coach, certified health coach and intuitive eating coach, and nearly certified to teach yoga. All of this revolves around a desire to help people. We’ve both gone through a lot of transitions in our lives, from big moves to career and life shifts and more. We’re going to talk about how big transitions often bring about stress and can have a big effect on how our mind and body work together, how doing less is one of the best things you can do for your body, and why you need to start putting yourself first.We Chat About:Making transitions from the inside and outHow stress and change affects the bodyDoing nothing for our healthPutting yourself firstResources:lizgarster.comInstagram: @lizgarsterRead: The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical PracticeConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

48. Ditch Birth Control + Learn the Fertility Awareness Method

Many women don’t know that fertility awareness is an option for them. When they see their doctors about their options, they are often told that there’s no reason to get off birth control unless they’re trying to get pregnant. But as we’ve discussed on this show before, there are any number of reasons why women may be looking into other options. The fertility awareness method can give you real clarity on when you’re in your fertile window and when you’re ovulating, whether you’re avoiding pregnancy or trying to achieve it, with a success rate comparable to birth control. This can be a great option for people who are interested in avoiding pregnancy but don’t want to be on the pill, so let’s dig into how it works.We Chat About:Listening to the signs your body is giving youThe menstrual cycle patternThe varying types of cervical mucusTracking basal body temperatureResources:Read: “Taking Charge of Your Fertility”Connect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

47. Supercharge Your Fertility with the Primemester Protocol | with Dr. Cleopatra

Dr. Cleopatra Kamperveen is a scientist and university professor who specializes in reproductive health and the transference of health from parents to children. Her personal story of growing up without a mother and feeling like she was meant to do something in her life with that experience led her to doing the work she does today as Fertility Strategist and Executive Director of the Fertility and Pregnancy Institute. Dr. Cleopatra pioneered the field of fertility biohacking and creating what she likes to call “Superbabies.” She provides fertility and pregnancy consulting to women and families nationally and internationally through her signature In Bloom programs, inner circle, and personalized, comprehensive one-on-one consulting. She’s conducted research on tens of thousands of women of all colors, ages, shapes and sizes, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, language preferences, and professions to examine how they transmit physical health and emotional wellbeing to their children.

46. Your Biological Clock is NOT a Ticking Time Bomb | with Georgie Kovacs

Georgie Kovacs is the founder of Fem Power Health, which was founded after her first-hand experience with infertility. Using her personal experience and 20 years in the biopharmaceutical industry and consulting, she leads this movement to empower women who are also going through fertility challenges. With limited research dollars and women being conditioned to “grin and bear it,” both women AND doctors are in an impossible position to diagnose and treat conditions with so little information. Women deserve to know more and better information, which is why Georgie started her platform, podcast, and website.So many women are struggling with fertility challenges and it is invaluable to hear from someone who’s been there, gone through it, and come out on the other side. This is an empowering conversation about how to handle your own health journey, being your own advocate, and staying hopeful.We Chat About:Georgie’s fertility journeyBeing patient with the processBeing diagnosed with endometriosisTaking ownership of your healthcareArtificial inseminationBeing vocal about the lack of educationResources:fempower-health.cominstagram.com/fempowerhealthfempower-health.com/podcastConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

45. Learning to Honor + Trust Your Natural Cycle | with Jessica Victoria

Jessica Victoria has such a similar philosophy to me when it comes to women’s hormone health and fertility. She is a holistic nutrition practitioner and women’s health and hormones coach, and like many people that get into the field, her interest in hormone health started with her own health issues  and realizing the potential side effects of birth control. When she quit taking birth control, she developed post-pill amenorrhea and didn’t start having her period for over two years after she came off the pill. She began to document her journey on Instagram, including her pregnancy, and the rest is history. We touch on several topics, including syncing your habits to your cycle, why she doesn’t do diet plans, and not following strict rules—but it always comes back to tuning into and listening to the body. And that’s the central takeaway from all of this: That overly specific rules can do more harm than good, and the best course of action is to take in what information you can, try it for yourself, and see what feels good to you and gets you the results you’re looking for.We Chat About:Helping women understand their bodiesSyncing to the different phases of your cycleNot believing in food rulesGetting your fertility on trackThe importance of keeping stress levels downNot following prescriptive adviceThe danger of labeling yourselfResources:jvictoriahealth.comInstagram: @jvictoriahealthConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

40. Reclaiming Your Identity on Your Healing Journey | with Samantha Kellgren

Samantha Kellgren is a mind-body fertility coach helping women take control of their fertility through the mind-body connection so that they can uplevel their life. After being diagnosed with hypothalamic amenorrhea, she found out that it is possible to be too fit to get pregnant, ended up undergoing IVF to have her son, and made drastic changes to her unhealthy relationship with exercise and eating. Now she helps coach women through the massive mindset shifts it takes to stop over-exercising and under-eating so that they can regain their cycles without going crazy. We talk about what hypothalamic amenorrhea is, why there’s such a stigma around women wanting to gain weight, why you need to learn how to release control, and how you can learn to re-identify who you are aside from fitness or diet. This is an important conversation that more women need to hear.We Chat About:Having to switch up your identity to reclaim your healthHow over-exercising and under-eating can have negative impacts on your healthAdjusting your mindset for a healthier lifestyleFinding your healthy weight rangeChoosing a sustainable lifestyle for yourselfNot worrying about others’ opinionsNot always being positive but finding the positiveResources:Learn more: simplywellcoaching.comInstagram: @simplywellcoachingFacebook: facebook.com/SimplywellcoachingConnect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - How to Intuitively Connect to Your Menstrual CycleLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programBook a Reiki SessionBook a Tarot ReadingPrivate Hormone CoachingLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate MediaMentioned in this episode:FAM TrainingLearn how to prevent pregnancy naturally and ditch birth control without fear.

Allison Preiss is founder of The Infused Life and it’s her passion to educate others on simple ways they can reduce their toxic load. It’s never been more important to learn about your products (whether it’s your makeup, self-care items, or cleaning supplies) because they all affect your hormones — especially if they’re full of toxins and ingredients you can’t even pronounce! This subject is so important because our liver is what processes the hormones out of our system, and when it’s overburdened by dealing with these toxic chemicals, it affects our hormones even more.

22. Quitting Birth Control Without Fear | with Rebecca Stow

Rebecca Stow is a client of mine, and when she asked to share her hormonal birth control story, I was like “YES, this is a story that women need to hear!”Rebecca is a certified holistic health coach like me and she knows firsthand what it feels like to struggle with perfectionism. She’s passionate about helping women develop a strong sense of self so that they can navigate every area of their lives — from food, to relationships, to career, to movement — like a boss. She does this by helping you build trust in yourself and your body so that you can learn to intentionally live, eat, and move in ways that are supportive to you.Rebecca had such an incredible transformation when she got off birth control. She was on the pill for 6 years. The symptoms she had before taking them were debilitating, so when she decided she wanted to quit taking birth control to connect more with her body, there was fear that those symptoms would come back. Through our work together, she’s learned that getting off of birth control doesn’t have to be scary, and in fact, it is going to make you feel a whole lot better!We Chat About:How Rebecca got into the health coaching fieldTransitioning out of college lifeTaking birth control to relieve menstrual symptomsThe process of quitting birth controlHaving a period epiphanyResources:rebeccastow.comInstagram: @rebeccastowConnect With Me:Subscribe on Apple PodcastsSubscribe on Google PodcastsLearn more about the Heal Your Period online programStart your FREE 14-Day Gut RebootConnect on Instagram: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/nourishedwithnina/" rel="noopener noreferrer"...

132 | Ladies Empowerment: Positive Body Image After Double Mastectomy | with Amanda Katherine Loy

Today on the pod we have wellness and mindset coach, Amanda Katherine Loy, joining us to talk about all things body image! Amanda is so open as she talks about her journey of stepping into her unapologetic self after many years of yo yo dieting and having a negative self-image. Right after turning 27 years old, she found out she was positive for the BRCA1 gene, which greatly increased her likelihood of developing breast cancer. As a preventative measure, she had a double mastectomy. Amanda shares how imperative it was that she had worked for years on developing a positive body image, so she could come at that big transition from a healthy place and bring self-love through all of it. We love Amanda’s raw honesty and vulnerability, while being upbeat and positive as she shares her story. Be on the lookout for Amanda’s upcoming book!   We Chat About: Social media’s role in negative body image What are the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes?

We so much enjoyed chatting with dietitian Laura Schoenfeld about how we can support our adrenals, reduce stress, and find that happy, healthy place our bodies crave! We had a wonderful conversation with Laura—including some really specific advice—and as you’ll hear, she really knows her stuff!   This was a really great reminder that so many women work hard on maintaining their health, but end up overstressed, overtrained, and undernourished.

Ep. 69 - Bringing Light to the Darkness: Building a Business to End Human Trafficking & Empower Women - with Amber Runyon, Founder of Eleventh Candle Co.

BONUS - Soulstrology: Aligning with the Cosmos to Create Your Future - with Ambi Kavanaugh

In this bonus episode, we’re talking about the Moon, the Sun, Mercury… and all the cosmos!! Ambi Kavanaugh joins us to chat about Soulstrology, and we think this is a great episode for anyone who feels on the fence about astrology because Ambi does not practice traditional astrology; Ambi is not helping people predict their future from a horoscope. Instead, Ambi helps people align their energy with the natural energies of the cosmos to create their own future.   By understanding the unique characteristics of the entire zodiac and the interplay between the movement of the planets and the individual and collective psyche, we are able to consciously work with these energies on a mind, body, and soul level. It might feel a little woo woo, but there’s a foundation of science in here too!   We’ve been taking our Care/of vitamins and we feel great! They’re a unique monthly vitamin service that focuses on honest guidance, better ingredients, and personalization. You just answer a quick questionnaire about your goals, lifestyle, and values – then they will help you pick vitamins that are good for your body.   You can get 50% off your first month of vitamins by using the code ‘SHINE’ at checkout!
