Have you noticed mold in your home, basement or attic? Have you noticed mold where you work?  

 

Mold exposure is more common that we realize, and it doesn’t just cause allergic reactions. Mold releases mold toxins that penetrate into human bodies and cause significant disruptions and damage.  

 

Everyone is affected differently by mold toxins, and some not at all, so it can be confusing and difficult to identify and address.  

 

 

This is exactly why my friend Bridgit Danner [@Bridgit.Danner] wrote her new book, The Ultimate Toxic Mold Recovery Guide: Take Back Your Home, Health & Life.  

 

Bridgit experienced mold toxicity herself and had to figure out how to effectively get the mold toxins out of her body and to recover. In the book, and in this interview, she shares about:  

 

-How she discovered that she had an environmental illness 

 

-Common symptoms of mold toxicity 

 

-How it is common to feel overwhelmed with the process of recovering from mold 

 

-How to test for mold 

 

-How to detoxify from mold safely and effectively 

 

 

If you’ve wondered whether you may have mold toxicity and definitely if you know you’ve been exposed to mold, please listen in to this interview and read Bridgit’s book. Having a resource and guide through the process is essential.   

 

In case you need more help, please know that you can also reach out to me for help. I offer urine mycotoxin testing through my office and have completed training to develop my protocol to help patients recover from mold exposure. So I’m here for you too.  

 

 

If you have been exposed to mold and have symptoms potentially caused by mold toxicity, it is worth it to be tested so we can address it before it has a chance to cause other issues.

When it comes to intermittent fasting, it can be incredibly beneficial for both men and women, however, it can backfire if you are burned out.  

 

-

 

I’ve witnessed it, over and over. I want you to know how to get the benefits without the setbacks. That’s what I cover in this episode of HHH: 

 

-How to know if your stress is negatively affecting your fasting 

 

-How cortisol is involved and how to test for it 

 

-What to do BEFORE you try to extend your fast 

 

-How to successfully implement IF to avoid making burnout worse 

 

 

In my new book, Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health, I help you to understand how your body is uniquely affected by stress, and walk you through my Stress Recovery Protocol so that you can learn to implement techniques such as IF without making yourself feel worse.

“Women are not “mini men” and cannot fast the same way men do. But women can benefit from intermittent fasting when we make modifications based on our hormones.” 

 

Cynthia Thurlow [@cynthia_thurlow] nurse practitioner and CEO of Everyday Wellness Project shares from her experience as a practitioner and woman going through perimenopause how mastering intermittent fasting changed her life and health.  

 

 

In this episode of How Humans Heal, Cynthia shares insights from her new book, Intermittent Fasting Transformation. She says that instead of being overfed, we need to be strategically fed.  

 

Women need more options besides prescription medications and surgery. Instead of just taking another pill or hormone for a symptom. We can use food choices as powerful ways to address symptoms. By making small, sustainable changes in the way we feed ourselves, we can address inflammation, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, and other health issues caused by “metabolic inflexibility”.  

 

-

 

The bulk of us are not metabolic healthy, Cynthia says.  

 

Women are given reflux medications, anti-depressants, sleeping agents, and estrogen replacement. This creates a slippery slope and women are likely to feel wrecked by the time they hit perimenopause. In the sandwich generation, women are responsible for so much. We as women are care takers, but who is taking care of us.  

 

Cynthia is wanting to influence women’s lives in a sustainable way, and that is why she wrote her book.  

 

 

In this episode and in the book, Cynthis talks about:  

 

-As estrogen decreases, insulin sensitivity decreases 

 

-It shows up as fatigue, anxiety, weight gain, and menstrual irregularities  

 

-It used to be that restricting food and exercising more would work for weight loss, but in perimenopause, that stops working 

 

-She is not anti-carb; she encourages women to consume the right carbs 

 

-Intermittent fasting is free and flexible 

 

-Align food intake with chronobiology – our internal clock. Don’t eat within 3 hours of bedtime. Eat when it is light outside. 

 

-

 

We are so focused on fertility years, and then women feel invisible and unrepresented in perimenopause, and yet we spend half of our lives in that state. Over 35 to 40 years old, indiscretions of snacking or having a glass of wine is more likely to be an issue, increasing inflammation and blood sugar levels. 

 

We need to be eating less often and eat the way our bodies are designed to thrive. We would not be here as a species if our bodies could not go through periods of food accessibility and scarcity, and to use different types as fuel sources. Our bodies are not designed to be in a surplus of food all the time.  

 

When you go to eat a snack, ask yourself, am I really hungry? Or am I stressed or bored and either need to take a walk or go to sleep. 

 

Use of a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) – which is currently by prescription – is one of the most impactful things you can do. It can allow you to experiment with different foods to find out how your body responds to a certain meal. Being aware of what your blood sugar is doing can be hugely influential to understand how stress, travel, and certain foods affect you.  

 

 

As hard as it can be to admit to ourselves that foods we love are an issue, when we do, it can allow us to make drastic changes in our health and wellbeing.  

 

Listen in to the amazing conversation I had with my friend, Cynthia Thurlow, for more insights about how what you are eating, and when, could be affecting the way you feel.

Neurotransmitters are messengers in the nervous system. They affect our mood, energy, focus and sleep. So if you are feeling tired, anxious, brain fog, distracted, and/or having trouble with sleep…it could your neurotransmitters! 

 

Examples of neurotransmitters are serotonin, dopamine, GABA, norepinephrine and epinephrine. They can be categorized as calming or stimulating to the nervous system. Optimally we would have a balance of calming and stimulating.  

 

When we are exposed to stress of various types, which we are as humans, then our nervous system and neurotransmitters respond to help us deal with the stress. And, depending on our genetics and stress exposure, our body metabolizes neurotransmitters uniquely. So one person may run out of serotonin faster than another person.  

 

 

Our neurotransmitters are made from amino acids, which come from protein in our diet. If we run low on a certain neurotransmitter, we can take more of the precursor amino acid for that neurotransmitter to support the body to make more. 

 

It is important, however, not to just guess what your neurotransmitter levels are. It is better to do a urine test, which is a specialty test I offer to my patients and in my programs, to measure your neurotransmitter levels. With that information, I can guide you on exactly which amino acids, and other nutrients, in what order and dose, to rebalance your neurotransmitter levels.  

 

-

 

I explain all about neurotransmitters, how they get thrown off balance, and how to reoptimize them in my new book – Master Your Stress, Reset Your Heath – which you can order here: https://doctordoni.com/msrh/   

 

-

 

And I offer supplements containing amino acids to rebalance your neurotransmitters in my supplements – Nature Empowered Nutritionals – available at DrDoni.com.  

 

 

If you have been taking medications to address your mood, energy, sleep or focus, it is important to work with a practitioner like me to help you address your neurotransmitters effectively and successfully. I’ve been helping patients with this for over 20 years.
