#015 The Illusion of Control, Authentic Confidence and Stepping into the Feminine with Maddy Moon

 

 

 

Body image and food obsession (aka food stress!) isn’t actually about how you look, or what you eat.  There is much more to it than that.  It is deeper.  Healing requires going deeper. Disordered eating, and body shame, are symptoms.  The root of the struggle is what my guest and I chat about this week.  Maddy and I know this area well! We had both been in body image and food “issues” hell for years and years.  It doesn’t have to be that way for you.  May our conversation open your world up and inspire you to see your body, food and yourself in a whole new way =)

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Madelyn Moon –an author, podcast host, retreat leader and transformational life coach. She is a guiding force for women who want to stop over-thinking their lives away, and live with more trust, intuition and flow. Maddy Moon was driven by masculine energy for most of her life, which led her down a dangerous path. Always striving to do more, be more and accomplish more, she found herself disconnected from her body with multiple disordered eating patterns, a restlessness and a lack of confidence. Maddy healed her heart, spirit, body and mind by stepping into her unique feminine power, giving up the need for control and learning to surrender to a higher power. Maddy takes life by the reigns today by leading thousands of women across the world through their own transformational experiences via her podcast, Mind Body Musings, her website, and her global retreats.

You are going to hear Maddy share:

  • what was going beneath the surface of her struggle with food and her body image.
  • why letting your parents off the hook is KEY to your own happiness and fulfillment in life.
  • the real reason you are depriving yourself and/or others of love and nurture.
  • the importance of harmonizing the masculine and feminine parts of you
  • why Faith is a key to building your confidence and letting go of control.
  • how to find balance between asking for help and self-reliance.
  • how to begin trusting your intuition.
  • why some tools and practices work for you, and others don’t.
  • and SO much more!!!

#013 Slow Down, Ease Up and Heal with Torea Rodriguez

 

 

What if you didn’t have to rush?  What if it wasn’t so urgent?

How would your experience of life change if you slowed down? If you eased up on yourself? If you let go of all the pressure? 

Could your body be asking for something pretty simple? A new way of being.

My guest and I both learned this new way of being through our own health challenges.  

Is something in your life asking you to slow down and ease up?

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Torea Rodriguez, a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® practitioner and Vitality Transformation Coach.

Toréa wasn’t always a health coach and functional medicine practitioner. In fact, she used to be a professional pilot flying jets for private families & charter companies out of the San Francisco Bay Area. It wasn’t until her diagnosis with two debilitating autoimmune diseases that led her down a path of exploration, transformation, and healing. Her undergraduate Biochemistry degree came in handy while she studied her way towards remission of both diseases. In that time, she became a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner and discovered her love of coaching. Today, she leads her executive clients through a unique transformational experience that helps restore health, vitality and performance so they focus on their priorities without burning out.

You are going to hear Toréa share:

  • the importance of mindset on your journey.
  • how healing is exploratory, not prescriptive.
  • why n=1 experiments are key to your healing.
  • how to not get overwhelmed and why less is more.
  • what is really going on with autoimmune illness: the 3 key ingredients
  • the need to keep stepping back and seeing the big picture.
  • why building a team is key.

Toréa is super smart and has a heart of gold.  She truly walks her talk and has been where you are.

Banana Chocolate “Ice Cream”

Ingredients

  • 4 Bananas, peeled, frozen, and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ cup Nut Butter of choice

Instructions

  1. Place the frozen banana slices in the food processor or blender. Process until fluffy, creamy and smooth. You will probably have to keep scraping the sides and pushing the bananas down occasionally until the ice cream texture is achieved.
  2. Once the bananas are the texture of ice cream, add the cocoa powder and nut butter to the bananas and process again until well combined.
  3. Serve right away. If you choose to freeze it after making it or because you have leftovers, let thaw on the counter about 10 minutes before scooping so it’s not so rock hard.
