EP55: Overcoming Limiting Beliefs
Wellness Warriors Radio is your go-to resource for open and candid conversation about the nuances of health and wellness. In each episode discover a unique perspective on living optimally.  Join us to discuss a wide-range of health topics – sometimes controversial, sometimes with opposing views – setting the stage for you to decide what works best for YOU.      This week, Michal delivers a solo episode where she discusses overcoming limiting beliefs and mindsets that could be holding you back from achieving your goals – whatever those may be. Limiting beliefs are false beliefs that prevent us from pursuing our goals and desires. Limiting beliefs can keep you from doing important things, like achieving your health goals, slowing down applying for your dream job or finding the relationship you want (or leaving the one you don’t want). Our beliefs put boundaries and limitations on what we perceive to be reasonable behavior. They can also keep you from doing unimportant things, like running through the streets naked or eating something that looks and smells unappealing to you. In fact, we need some limiting beliefs in order to, you know, limit us from doing some silly things but some limiting beliefs unnecessarily hold us back from who we want to become.   In this week’s episode we discuss… What are limiting beliefs The 3 main types of limiting beliefs Examples of limiting beliefs and how they might be holding you hostage Michal’s 4-step coaching process to begin to overcome limiting beliefs ……..and much more Now more than ever, we want to foster a sense of support and community amongst our tribe of Wellness Warriors.

EP54: Achieving Wellness in the Era of Burnout with Warren Wellness MD
Warren Wellness MD, is owned by a doctor and physician assistant, targets the burnout, secondary trauma, and mental wellness components of health care professionals through credentialed continuing education in the format of intimate retreats, corporate wellness initiatives, and telehealth counseling services.  We acknowledge the barriers of stigma, culture of perfection, time constraints and lack of resources and provide a “how to” action plan to execute these skills with the goal of saving the lives of those saving the lives of others. Our podcast begins with this powerful personal story… “During July 2020, I stood in a dark room, full of dinging alarms, machines, tubes, and monitors, positioned between a married couple, each in their own bed on either side of me, each attached to their own high-level oxygen, with me covered head to toe in plastic, leaving only a form of my humanistic side to the imagination. I looked into the fearful eyes of a woman on the other side of my Facetime screen explaining to her that both of her parents’ health from COVID-19 had declined rapidly and if she did not decide immediately, she would likely lose both parents within the hour.  This couple was my first introduction to the consequences of the pandemic on families and the severity of secondary trauma on health care professionals.” While the past few years have taken a toll on us all in different ways, we’re honored to have had this discussion to find ways we can support each other in coming out the other side – perhaps even better than we were before, living more balanced and meaningful lives. In this special episode of the Wellness Warriors Radio podcast, we discuss: A behind-the-scenes story of what it was like working in a hospital COVID unit at the height of the global pandemic Challenges we all face getting what we need for our own personal care and how we can find ways to overcome them The professional stigma healthcare professionals face in taking care of their own health The impact of compassion fatigue and boundaries we need to set when it comes to empathy  Strategies to deal with stress in the moment – even in high-stress jobs  The impact of isolation on our mental, emotional, and physical health Alternative and complementary options to pharmacological psychiatry  Multiple ways to engage in activities prevent burnout The importance of group support to cultivate collective wellbeing And much more… Now more than ever, we want to foster a sense of support and community amongst our tribe of Wellness Warriors.

Ep 51: Manifesting Your Healthy Vision
This week, Michal chats with fellow Wellness Warrior Liana Ledgerwood. Liana is an entrepreneur, mother of two little ones and a wife of a professional soccer player.  After receiving her bachelors in education and becoming a school teacher she soon realized that she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps and be an entrepreneur.  She left her teaching job to run a multi-million-dollar restaurant and eventually left that to open her own hot yoga studio.  With a positive exit almost 5 years later she was on a journey of being a wife and mother and realized that the breastfeeding world needed a change.  She taught herself how to sew, cut patterns and design and 4 years later she had created a nursing bra that was cute, sexy and functional and called the brand Milae Collective.  Launching this company during a pandemic has not been easy especially when you include running two hot yoga studios and teaching 10 yoga classes per week. This mama is busy.  She wouldn't change a thing knowing that the opportunities that have come her way are from her hard work and dedication to building her dreams. In this week’s episode we discuss… Liana’s story and the evolution of Milae How Liana defines wellness Keeping motivation going even through the most challenging of times How yoga is beyond simply a job Lessons from being a young entrepreneur The future of Milae and how you see things growing Advice to moms, working or not ……..and much more Mentioned in this episode...

EP40: Lifestyle By Design with Luly Martin
How you think has a profound impact on how you act and how you act filters into all aspects of your life – from how you think about yourself, how others treat you, your relationships, your job and even your health.

This week, Michal welcomes fellow Wellness Warrior Luly Martin, a dynamic lifestyle coach who combines her vast experience in personal training and movement with targeted lifestyle coaching. She helps you discover your true self by guiding you in the unlearning of the negative self-talk that triggers limiting behaviors.

This week, we're bringing back one of our most popular topics and a special rebroadcast episode discussing all the nuances of fasting from a beginner's perspective. Fasting has been a common practice among many major religions for centuries, and in ancient Greece, Hippocrates believed it helped the body heal itself. Fasting has more recently emerged into the mainstream as a strategy to stimulate fat loss and to increase longevity.  There’s also research showing that certain types of fasting may help improve your cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose levels, insulin sensitivity, and other health issues. There are several versions of fasting protocols and many myths and misconceptions about fasting that we uncover in this intriguing episode. In this episode of Wellness Warriors Radio, Beth & Michal discuss… The various types of fasting approaches Why people fast Benefits of fasting Drawbacks of fasting Fasting myths and misconceptions How to determine if fasting is right for you? How to get started with fasting in your own life This is a jam-packed episode to set the stage for a hot topic in health and wellness.   After listening, share your own experience on this topic and post your questions and comments in our Wellness Warriors Facebook Community!

EP37: Nitric Oxide & Your Immune System
Maintaining adequate nitric oxide levels is best recognized for the incremental advantages it offers if increasing blood flow and muscle oxygenation to the heart. Recent research has also linked importance of optimizing nitric oxide levels in ensuring an effective immune response to viral infection. Cardiovascular disease is being reported as one of the primary co-morbidities in the Covid-19 crisis. Nitric oxide is a vital signaling molecule in the health of the cardiovascular system and it is never too late for patients to start making improvements. This week, Michal chats again with Beth Shirley (who you may have heard in Episode 25 – All About Nitric Oxide) who has developed expertise as a pharmacist and certified clinical nutritionist during a 40+ year career. Beth became the pharmacist to go to in order to support people in getting off prescription medications or prevent them from going down that road to begin with. Beth provides clinical nutrition service for wellness-focused individuals across the entire age spectrum. Her specialties include stress-induced hormonal imbalance, intestinal dysfunction, autoimmune and chronic inflammatory issues, detoxification and super-normal oxidative stress. Over the last 9 years, Beth has spent time working with some of the leading thought leaders in the world of nitric oxide research and through this has developed an in-depth knowledge on the topic and its potential applications in patient care. In this week’s episode Beth Shirley and Michal discuss… What is Nitric Oxide dysregulation? How does this impact oxidative stress? The role of inadequate nitric oxide in hypoxia How Nitric Oxide impacts your immune response How does one begin to restore NO levels in the body and how long will this take Real life tips and strategies on how to improve your nitric oxide levels Mentioned in this episode...

EP36: 5 Steps To Stay Healthy In Times Of Stress
This week on the podcast, we want to let our listeners know we wish them well and hope all are keeping safe and healthy during this time of the Coronavirus outbreak. We all experience stress and anxiety on occasion (some of us more than others as our personality predisposition), but there are situations in our life that can raise our stress levels, such as a divorce, death of a loved one, challenges at work or a job loss, unexpected health diagnoses or simply doing too much and trying to be superhuman day in day out. Often, we might turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with our emotions, such as drinking, smoking, avoiding exercise, overworking or overeating unhealthy comfort foods or sugary treats.   During this global COVID-19 outbreak where our everyday lives are disrupted, we can also feel a sense of ongoing anxiety from the unknowingness of what the future holds for ourselves and our loved ones. While we can recognize lives aren’t always predictable, we can still take our health and wellness into our own hands and a few simple steps to manage our mindset to get through times of uncertainty, overwhelming stress and anxiety. TUNE IN TO THIS WEEK’S EPISODE FOR 5 TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY IN TIMES OF STRESS!   After listening, share your own challenges and ways you’re navigating this situation in our Wellness Warriors Radio Community Facebook Group – we’re here to support you!   Links to Resources: Setting Healthy Goals Workbook – download your FREE copy at bit.ly/wwrgoalsworkbook Wellness Warriors Anytime Reset Program.  7 Steps. 21 Days.

EP 35: CBD, Hemp & Health with Michal, Drew Irwin & Alvin Harbour
Wellness Warriors Radio is your go-to resource for open and candid conversation about the nuances of health and wellness. In each episode discover a unique perspective on living optimally.  Join us to discuss a wide-range of health topics – sometimes controversial, sometimes with opposing views – setting the stage for you to decide what works best for YOU.   There's no question that CBD is the buzzy wellness product of the moment. If you live in a state where it's currently legal, you might feel like CBD has appeared everywhere, all at once. Coffee shops sell CBD lattes, spas offer CBD facials, beauty companies are rushing to release lotions with CBD or hemp oils in their formulas. And everyone, no matter the ailment, seems to want to get their hands on some CBD gummies. Even though CBD is infiltrating almost  every corner of the wellness world, using CBD can still be a little confusing—especially when it comes to figuring out the right way to use it and how to make sure what you are buying is going to be high quality and effective… This week, Michal welcomes fellow Wellness Warriors Drew Irwin and Alvin Harbour who have both spent tireless hours researching what actually happens when CBD enters the body. Their continued research of CBD has helped them use the latest cutting edge science and Nano technology to make CBD absorb even better. This has resulted in the creation of a patented structured water, which, when combined with their specially formulated hemp powder, produces a unique and special product. This has afforded them a wealth of wisdom backed by true science to offer both professionals and layman in the health and wellness industry a genuine value.. In this week’s episode we discuss… Where is CBD found  Why is it recently has it come into the spotlight  What is the Endocannabinoid system  How much research has been done to prove the efficacy of CBD  What can it be used for  How can CBD improve quality of life  What is cortisol and how does it affect our cells  If cortisol inhibits cell reproduction how does this affect performance athletes, elderly, children, everyday people  How can CBD improve metal clarity and focus  What about CBD and hormone release pertaining to gut health  How to connect with Drew & Alvin through their company TooSeeds and a special offer on their most popular products for Wellness Warrior Radio listeners Mentioned in this episode...
