Jillian Fullarton: Breast Cancer & Medically Induced Menopause

 

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Jillian joins me to share her story of breast cancer and the medically induced menopause that resulted from her treatment. She highlights the most difficult parts of her diagnosis and treatment, and shares what she’s learned during the past year in the hope that it will help other women undergoing breast cancer treatment or supporting someone who is.

Jill and I discuss the many different types of breast cancer and the treatments, including hormone blockers, and drugs for the side effects. We also talk about hormone replacement therapy for breast cancer patients (and how it’s often not an option), the life-changing magic of pelvic floor therapy, the importance of mammograms and colonoscopies, and what not to say to a cancer patient. This is an informative and hopeful conversation about a very important topic that you won’t want to miss.

Victoria Yates, RN-BSN: Body Image & Food Freedom

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Victoria Yates, RN & Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, is passionate about helping women ditch diets and stop hating their bodies.

In this episode, Victoria and I discuss why quick fixes don’t work when it comes to our weight, why intuitive eating is the answer to freedom from food, and how we can start listening for the language we use around our body image and change it if it’s not serving us. Victoria explains how to harness the brain’s incredible ability to create a new set of thoughts that are rooted in self-love, and the freedom women gain from making that shift.

Wendy shares the surprising things she learned when she ditched her scale over 4 years ago, and how she came to love her (slightly softer!) body after the bumpy ride of menopause (and decades of self-criticism.)

Susan Larkin – Worthiness, Burnout and Gray Area Drinking

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

In today's episode, my fellow Certified TNM Alcohol Coach, Susan Larkin joins me to share her story and message for busy women who are drinking more than they’d like to manage stress.

Susan’s career in medical education at an Ivy League medical school started late in her 30s. It was then that she started drinking to cope with the stress of balancing a career, family life, and getting her MBA. As her career progressed, she found herself hustling for her worthiness which led to burnout and more drinking. That nightly glass of wine turned into 2-3 or more, and she became a "gray area drinker" living an increasingly gray life.

Now an alcohol-free empty nester, Susan is passionate about helping women get their drinking under control, take back their power of choice, and create an amazing vibrant life!
