#029 Calm the Chaos, Build a New Foundation and Optimize Your Metabolism with Josh and Jeanne Rubin

 

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Jeanne and Josh Rubin of East West Healing and Performance. Josh and Jeanne are revolutionizing nutrition for thyroid health by teaching people how to use food as supplementation, reduce stress and build the most sound foundation for the body to heal.
They believe the greatest defense one has against the ever-changing environment is the health of the metabolism. When the metabolism is strong and the thyroid is functioning, all systems are working in synergy, just as they are meant to.
Josh and Jeanne are teaching people how to use food to resource their body in new ways, which in turn is building a bridge for complete mind, body and spirit growth and transformation.
They are here to offer you back ownership of your health and to provide you the information you need to make more informed choices around your health!
In this episode, you are going to hear Josh and Jeanne shed light on:
  • their refreshing philosophy on healing the body of all chronic ailments.
  • why we must look at cellular function to restore health.
  • the importance of looking at the body as a system.
  • what foods, and ways of eating, support optimizing metabolism.
  • their food strategy that meets you where you are at.
  • what mistakes, and misguidance, they see being practiced out there.
  • the most accurate way to assess thyroid health and metabolism
  • how to stop chasing your tail and instead, build resiliency in your body.
  • how people are approaching weight loss backwards.
  • why weight doesn’t determine health.
  • how important breath is to metabolism and restoring optimal function in the body.
  • how you must be willing to change your life to achieve the results you want.
  • why patience, experimentation and customization is crucial for long-term healing.
  • how health challenges have become a red tag people wear as a badge of honor.
  • why you cannot heal in a state of chaos.
  • bringing health back to basics, instead of over-complicating the solutions.
  • how nose breathing can transform your health.

#027 Hungry for Happiness with Sam Skelly

 

“You cannot heal something you hate” 
“Dieting and binge eating is rooted in fear.”
“Suppressed anger is one of the main reasons you are using food as a drug.” 
“You have to decide you are worth it.”
These are just a few of the powerful truth bombs today’s guest shares in her book.  There are many more.  I highly suggest you listen to this episode, giving it your fullest presence…and read her book.
In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Samantha Skelly – an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, best-selling author, and emotional eating expert who has revolutionized the weight loss industry by examining the individual and underlying causes of eating disorders. She has shared her mission on an international platform and continues to spread her message and transform the lives of thousands of people through the Phoenix Formula, motivational speaking engagements, the Hungry for Happiness podcast, worldwide international retreats, and her Amazon best-selling book, Hungry for Happiness: One Woman’s Guide From Fighting Food to Finding Freedom.
Hungry for Happiness is a movement of women dedicated to ending the fight with food and their bodies by addressing the underlying causes of emotional eating. When we heal our connection to our bodies and reestablish trust in ourselves, we realize our problems really have very little to do with food.
In this episode, you are going to hear Sam and I chat about:
  • her path to finding freedom from weight loss obsession, body shame, the diet/binge cycle, over-exercising and clean eating 
  • the internal issues causing your struggle with your body.
  • how every choice you make is either self-loving or self-violent.
  • why suffering is a learned behavior.
  • the power of observation.
  • how your life is a reflection of your beliefs.
  • why you need to be willing to be in the process of transformation and healing, AND allow it to be messy.
  • how to let go of dieting and still honor your health.
  • how your identity is keeping you stuck.
  • why it is ok to not like your body.
  • why self-honesty is a KEY to transformation.
  • what self-acceptance truly is.
  • how to create self-trust.

See your food cravings in a new light

If you’re like I used to be, you have likely been struggling with food cravings forever. And, also like me, you’ve likely tried a number of diets and strategies that haven’t worked long term. I know how frustrating this can be, and how defeating it feels to try to “be good” all the time. Because it never works, right? You do well for a while, avoiding all those foods you love.  Then you end up giving in and devouring a whole bag of candy or chips.  Then it all goes out the window…

It doesn’t have to be that way.

12798991_10153933155607731_3127750003073441878_n

I put this guide together so you can start to learn some foundational lifestyle habits that can help you find more confidence around your food choices. The information I’m sharing is not about deprivation or the latest strict diet; it’s about creating healthy sustainable habits that have been proven to both help keep cravings in check, and improve overall well-being at the same time.

“The Weighting Game” (part 1)

SHOP (1)

Take-away’s from the book, “Desserts is Stressed Spelled Backwards”.

I love this book on emotional eating and body image.  It is a deep dive into the real issues hiding behind emotional eating and the struggle with your body. I have pages and pages of amazing truths from this book. There are a small selection below.

  • You have the idea that if you change your appearance your problems will all go away. You blame every issue you have on not having a good enough body. Truth – your body is not the real problem.
  • Compulsive eating is a three-fold problem – physical, emotional, spiritual.
  • Key step is creating self-awareness. Which of my needs isn’t being met?
  • Self-sabotage – happens at the point at which you think major change in your life will occur and fear wins. You choose safety. Look at the consequences of reaching a goal or making a change in your life.  What fears and/or negative consequences come up?
  • Shifting from the self-punishment and self-criticism to self-acceptance and self-care is critical for finding peace.
