Episode 409

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Leah and Holly are joined by Courtney Bursich from Organic Blondie. Courtney is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, AADP Board Certified Holistic Health Coach, and passionate health hacker who focuses on optimizing female hormones and taking an individualized approach to healing.

 

In this episode:

Courtney shares her health journey and how her children sparked her to want more.

Courtney shares what hormonal imbalances are and how she sees them commonly manifest in her clients. She shares how estrogen dominance/androgen dominance are among the common.

She also shares that “women’s cycles and fertility are a vital sign. When we are always fighting our body, it ends up rebelling against us and our treatments rather than taking the time to slow down and try to figure it out. Certain medications and interventions may be necessary in some cases, but maybe not, and at what cost?”

What foods and natural alternatives are helpful in hormonal imbalance.

And where does Ayurveda – An ancient Indian tradition fit into our modern lifestyles.

Holly Jean and John discuss the latest controversy over Cosmopolitan magazine and the cover photo featuring obese women with the caption “this is healthy”. The magazine has come under criticism, being accused of glamorizing obesity, for being irresponsible for displaying obesity as the picture of health during a time where a global pandemic is disproportionately affecting people with obesity and metabolic disorders more adversely. Then there is an outrage in response to the criticism from the body positivity and the body love movement. Holly Jean and Jonathan discuss the valid opinions and arguments on both sides of these discussions and how conversation is opening a lot of doors to understanding and dissecting a complicated topic.

Jonathan shares his proven success formula he uses to help clients:

The ROAD method

R – Remove O – Observe A – Action D – Discipline
