Low-Carb Conversations
Low-Carb Conversations features conversations with host Leah Williamson, NTP and a variety of voices in the Low-Carb, Keto, Paleo and Real Food movements, expressing many different points of view.

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

 

This week Holly and Leah are back for a Co-Host Episode. Recently, Holly was astonished by the health advice random strangers were giving people on social media forums. It got us thinking whether Social media is an appropriate place to a) Ask such health questions and b) try the advice given from strangers. Where should one go to ask such questions if Social Media is not the place?

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

In this episode, Leah chats with Neuropsychiatrist and Author of the new book, The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond, by Dr. Louann Brizendine.

Dr Brizendine shares newly emerging information about women in the second half of life: during midlife, women’s brains are actually reshaped and “upgraded” in a way that creates new power, a bracing clarity, and a laser-like sense of purpose. Dr. Brizendine calls this process The Upgrade and argues that, if a woman knows how to step into her power and own her Upgrade, the second half of her life can be the better half.

Listen in as Leah and Dr Brizendine chat about the Transition (the period of time leading to The Upgrade). Dr Brizendine shares her research on tips on making The Transition to the Upgrade a better experience through mindset, nutrition, exercise, sleep and more. Dr Brizendine wishes for women experiencing this transition to experience more joy and serenity in their lives.

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

 

In this episode, Holly Jean and Leah review their favorite moments from most recent previous episodes.

Breathing, digestion, and stress management go hand-in-hand! This week’s article is a look at how belly breathing could be the key to better digestion. Deep belly breathing can actually massage the contents of the gut helping move food through the body for better elimination. Tune in to hear more about this and tips on a non cost method that is essential to life!

When we activate the diaphragm with breath, it creates a gentle massaging action for internal organs like the intestines and stomach. In doing so, it can reduce abdominal pain, urgency, bloating, and constipation.

Diaphragmatic breathing, or deep breathing, does not take much more effort than standard breathing and is one of the best things you can do to help with digestion.

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

In this episode, Holly Jean and Leah chat with Katie Beecher, Internationally known Medical and Emotional Intuitive and Licensed Professional Counselor with over 30 years of experience. Katie’s mission is to help as many people as possible connect to their intuitions, find unconditional love and self acceptance.

Katie has a new book out called, Heal from Within: A Guidebook to Intuitive Wellness, and she shares how to connect to your intuition to help guide and identify your physical and emotional key health issues. Using the chakras as a framework, Katie describes how we should make friends with illness instead of seeing it as enemy = the body is always trying to communicate with us and symptoms are its language.

This episode provides practical action items and key tips for connecting and understanding your body. We wrap up with a conversation about medical gaslighting and why people are often told there is nothing wrong with them. Gaslighting further complicates and compounds the lack of body wisdom and intuition, which further disconnects people from listening to their bodies and inner voice.

In this episode, Holly Jean and Leah chat with The Ketogenic Pharmacist Brian O’Halloran. Brian is a pharmacist of 20+ years and a Certified Ketogenic Nutrition Specialist. Often times, people think of their local pharmacist as a person who just fills prescriptions. Brian busts that myth and lets us know just how important, even critical, pharmacists are in the medical industry.

Brian is a bit of rogue pharmacist and wants to see his patients less by educating people about diet and lifestyle changes that can help them ditch the prescriptions all together. In this informative and interesting chat, we talk about:

  • Precautions when starting Low Carb/Keto diet if you are on medications
  • How to deal with Keto Flu
  • Why you must talk to your doctor about dietary changes and when you might want to find a new doctor

Connect with Brian on Instagram: @theketogenicpharmacist

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

In this episode, Leah and Holly Jean discuss contributing factors of autoimmune disease. For decades, doctors and researchers believed that autoimmune conditions were genetic, or hereditary, and even a normal side effect of the aging process. But as conditions are rising at alarming rates and the age of diagnosis is getting younger and younger, researchers are asking questions and exploring the reasons for autoimmune onset.

We take a look at nutrition and lifestyle factors in this episode and discuss whether or not the western diet is to blame. If nutrition and diet play a role in developing autoimmune disease, is it possible to use therapeutic diets to reverse symptoms and diagnosis? We explore all this and more, in this episode!

Welcome to a New Year. We are starting the year with Leah and Holly discussing a new article on the Body Positivity Movement and an article that suggests that the messaging of the movement is not always positive in terms of health results.
