In this episode of How Humans Heal I introduce myself and how I became interested in nutrition, naturopathic medicine, women’s health, and stress.  

 

Ultimately, more than 90% of health issues are caused by stress.  

 

If we want to be living longer and maintaining the highest quality of life, we need to be doing everything we can to counteract the effects of stress on our body, mind, and spirit.  

 

It was what I learned from women in labor that helped me define my theory of how to help humans recover from stress, and eventually to identify my Stress Recovery Protocol.  

 

Then I moved to Manhattan, right after 9/11, one of the most stressful times in the history of New York.  

 

My curious mind went to work figuring out how stress was affecting my patients and myself, so that I could then reverse the effects of stress to restore health.  

 

I started measuring cortisol levels throughout the day, as well as adrenaline levels and neurotransmitter levels. These tests had just become available (not in NY, but in CT), so I opened a practice in Connecticut and started reading every study I could find about how cortisol affects us and what we can use to get it back to optimal.  

 

It was a long process of trial and error, learning from my patients, adjusting my protocol, and continuing to learn while also lecturing around the country and internationally about how to help humans restore healthy cortisol, neurotransmitters, gut health, methylation, mitochondrial function, and hormones.   

 

I started writing about my findings starting way back then, which lead to my first book – The Stress Remedy. I went on to write four more books about stress recovery including my latest book – Master Your Stress Reset Your Health.  

 

Essentially, I found over and over again that we can do what is considered impossible, reversing health issues that were not considered reversible, using my protocol.  

 

When we achieve optimal cortisol and adrenaline, we reset the effect of stress on our system.  

 

Most people walk around thinking it is about surviving while imbalanced by stress. Instead, I’m saying, no, you can rebalance and recover from the effects of stress and in doing so, change your health and extend your life.  

 

 

You see why I’m so obsessed with stress? It is the key to our health when we learn how to support ourselves through the stress we experience as humans.  

 

Now I help men, women, and children AROUND THE WORLD to implement my approach.  

 

I’ll continue with my research of stress recovery activities and teaching patients and practitioners how to implement my Stress Recovery Protocol, which doesn’t exist anywhere else because it was developed by me.  

 

If you are ready to get your cortisol and adrenaline to optimal and reset from stress, reach out. I’m here to guide you.

In this inspiring interview, I had the opportunity to talk to Julie Michelson [@Julie.Michelson], functional medicine health coach, who reversed rheumatoid arthritis herself.  

 

She talks about how difficult it was to have severe joint pain and on 10 prescription medications for 11 years, while taking care of her children.  

 

I know there are thousands of people suffering with autoimmune conditions who are – like Julie – being told by their doctors that there is nothing they can do to reverse it.  

 

When her son was diagnosed with Celiac disease, she too went gluten-free, and was surprised by how much better she felt.  

 

It made her wonder – what else might help?  

 

Then when her daughter said “mom, please don’t die and leave us,” she promised she would try everything.  

 

This decision literally saved her life.  

 

 

In this episode we talk about:  

 

-That it is possible to turn off autoimmunity 

 

-The timeline of healing from autoimmunity 

 

-Coming off medications with the support her doctor 

 

-Addressing underlying causes of autoimmunity 

 

-Food sensitivities, such as gluten, related to autoimmunity  

 

-The importance of healthy fats 

 

-Genetics related to autoimmunity 

 

 

If you have an autoimmunity condition, and you’ve been searching for answers about how you can do something about it beyond what your rheumatologist is telling you – definitely listen in to this conversation.  

 

Julie and I would LOVE for you to know that healing and permanent remission is possible.

Jul 12, 2022

It just so happens that I’ve helped thousands of women to address HPV over the past 22+ years, and I’m here to share what I’ve learned with you.  

 

Your doctor may have told you…  

 

-HPV (especially the high risk types) can cause cancer 

-HPV can go away (negative on a test) on its own within 2 years (90% do) 

-Come back in 6-12 months to do another pap and see if it’s still there 

-If HPV remains or if it causes abnormal cells, your doctor will offer medical procedures to remove the cells (or part of your cervix and/or your uterus) 

 

What your doctor likely did NOT tell you…  



-Removing the abnormal cells (or cancer) doesn’t kill the virus – abnormal cells can recur 

-Repeat procedures can increase risk of miscarriage and other issues 

-There is no pharmaceutical/medical treatment to kill HPV 

-Most all of us have been exposed to it – that’s part of being a sexually active human 

-Stress and stressing about HPV makes you more susceptible to HPV 

-There are effective treatments for HPV and to get it to negative on your test results 

-Your cervix can heal and grow new healthy cells after abnormal cells are removed 

-It’s possible for HPV to go to negative and stay negative 

 

 

And what your doctor may have told you that I have found only makes you more stressed: 

 

It’s your fault for being exposed to HPV by having sex 

 

You are human. Humans have sex. Humans get exposed to HPV (and other microbes, and emotions, and energies) when having sex.  

 

Whether HPV exposure causes abnormal cells or cancer is completely related to your susceptibility to the virus.  

 

What I do is teach you to understand what is making you susceptible to the HPV virus, and then what to do to change that situation.  

 

-

 

And it’s NOT just about taking a whole bunch of AHCC! Yes, AHCC is a mushroom extract that has been studied and shows effectiveness at improving immune function again viruses. However, I don’t suggest putting all your strategy on one supplement. And I don’t suggest taking a whole bunch of supplements for the rest of your life either. That’s not the point. 

 

 

The point is…  

 

-Stress exposure (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, energetic, chemical, toxins) causes imbalances in your body 

-Those imbalances may include imbalanced hormones, nutrient levels, neurotransmitter levels, digestion, gut bacteria, vaginal bacteria, mindset, self-talk, energy, prioritization, etc.  

-When we are imbalanced due to stress, we become susceptible to the effects of HPV (and other viruses) 

-We need to look at you as an individual, figure out what is out of balance, and rebalance it (all).  

 

 

Important notes:  

 

-If you have cancer cells, they must be treated by an oncologist 

-If HPV is testing positive (whether abnormal cells or not) you can take steps now to prevent it from causing abnormal cells (again) 

-It is important that you go back for a pap/colpo in the recommended time frame to make sure the protocol you are following is effective for you 

 

My protocol is different because it… 

 

-Puts the focus on you and what makes you unique 

-Helps you prioritize yourself  

-Puts you in the driver’s seat of your health and future 

-Gives your body what it needs to rebalance 

-Fends off HPV because you become healthy 

-Teaches you what your body needs in order to stay healthy going forward 

-Takes the focus off of exposure and puts the focus on what you can do to heal 

 

 

It’s important that you know that my protocol… 

 

-Involves diet changes and nutrients using clinical nutrition doses because I’m a Clinical Nutritionist 

-Involves diet, herbs, homeopathy, peptides and other natural approaches because I’m a Naturopathic Doctor (licensed in AZ, CA, WA and CT) and Certified Professional Midwife 

-Teaches you about testing that is not available in the regular doctor’s office or lab so that we can determine what your body needs in order to heal 

-Addresses your whole body, not just your cervix or vagina 

-Addresses your whole self, not just the physical level 

-Has been used by thousands of women successfully 

 

-

 

However, if you only follow my protocol partially, or you make modifications based on what you do or don’t want to do, then the success rate decreases.  

 

My protocol requires that you…  

 

-Are willing to look at yourself, your patterns, and what makes you susceptible to HPV 

-Are willing to be with your feelings, fears, and process them 

-Are willing to prioritize yourself in terms of time, emotionally, and financially 

-Put your focus on healing, knowing yourself, and changing what is making you susceptible

Jul 5, 2022

As a rehab specialist, an injury skiing that wouldn’t heal, forced Irene Lyon [@IreneLyon] to consider mind-body work. That led her to become a Feldenkrais practitioner herself. Years later she found herself searching for more answers, which led her to study somatic experiences with Peter Levine.  

 

The premise of somatic work is - what we experience gets stuck in our tissue and the way we think and connect with people. 

 

Since then, she developed online programs and has helped close to 10,000 people in 90 countries learn to become their own medicine by reteaching them how to be with their body and their stress response.  

 

Through research of her programs, people have been able to increase self-worth, feel less isolated, and decrease a range of symptoms.  

 

 

Understanding how stress gets stored in our bodies and supporting our bodies to resolve it, allows us to heal from past trauma. When stressed, we go into a freeze response to protect us. The trouble with that, is the flight or fight hasn't been resolved. Whatever emotion we haven’t been allowed (or allow ourselves) to express, can block the nervous system. That impacts the autonomic nervous – from hormones, digestion, cell cleaning mechanisms, and more.  

 

Depending on your history and predisposition, it will express differently in different people. It can cause anything from migraines, to autoimmunity, to anxiety and depression. The symptoms are triggered from something that occurred and you have been stuck in protection mode ever since.  

 

 

In this interview Irene and I connect about skiing in the Pacific Northwest, and about having joint hypermobility. I share that a year ago, due to physical and emotional stress, I developed an inflammatory condition that required surgery. Yet still, it was clear that I also needed to address the stress in my body to truly address the root cause.  

 

If we never have a chance to reset from stress we were exposed to, it is stored in our bodies and can cause long-standing health issues.  

 

I talk about these concepts in my book – Master Your Stress Reset Your Health – so I’m so excited to dive deep in this discussion with Irene. https://www.amazon.com/Master-Your-Stress-Reset-Health/dp/1953295576  

 

 

Important concepts we cover are:  

 

-Somatic healing involves breathwork, movement, as well as emotional processing.  

 

-Feeling safe is essential for healing 

 

-Disassociation and how to bring your attention to being in your body 

 

-Orient to your surroundings 

 

-How talking to your body brings you into connection and communication from within 

 

-Small, incremental steps can be used to gradually retrain the vagus nerve and stress response system 

 

-It’s important to individualize the approach 

 

 

If you are struggling and stuck in physical and/or emotional pain, I encourage you to learn more about Irene’s programs at IreneLyon.com.
