I'll be honest, I often find Instagram to be a pretty toxic place, with the exception of a view good souls whose stories and journeys continue to inspire me and remind me of the most important message: You.are.enough. Lex Daddio of Restoring Radiance is one of those people. Lex's journey hasn't been straight-forward or simple. After years of struggling with body image, food restriction and binge eating disorder, Lex has chronicled her path to recovery over on Restoring Radiance. Most importantly, she reminds me that this is a light at the end of the tunnel and joy to be found in food, and life.

On today's episode we discuss:

  • Lex's struggles with body image and when her eating disorder began
  • The restrict and binge cycle and what binge eating disorder is
  • Exercise addiction and finding a healthful way to move your body
  • Sharing her story on Instagram and being public about her eating disorder
  • Pregnancy and how it shifted her view on her body
  • What intuitive eating means to her and embracing food freedom
  • ...and so much more!

Podcast Episode #106: Kim Anami + All About the Female Orgasm

One of the most overlooked conversations when it comes to holistic health is about the importance of sexual health. Women especially have generally downplayed the value of having a healthy sex life and seen it as a frivolous or unnecessary. But guess what, ladies? Your sexual health is as important as your mental and otherwise physical well-being. They're all connected!

Today on the podcast I've invited female sacred sexuality coach, Tiffany Janay to join us to discuss the importance of a healthy sex life, how to tap into your masculine and feminine energies and how yoni eggs - yes we're talking crystals in your vagina!- can help support these.

Today on the show we're discussing:

  • Tiffany's journey and how she learned about sacred sexuality
  • Masculine vs. feminine energies and how to cultivate both
  • Why masculine energy became more valued + how to tap into your divine feminine
  • Yoni eggs and what they support
  • Can you lose a yoni egg inside of you?!
  • What is sacred sexuality + why is it important for women?
  • Male sexuality and why we need to redefine it
  • ...and so much more!

I'm a true believer that it's our pain that becomes our power; that we are not defined by our triumphs but by our struggles and how we recover from them. Today's podcast guest is no exception. I'm thrilled and honored to have Dr. Adi Jaffe, founder of IGNTD on the show today sharing his journey with addiction and how he turned his pain into power. Dr. Jaffe's story begins with his own addictions and while it could have ended with 9 felony convictions, he didn't allow his story to end there. Dr. Jaffe went back to school to get his masters and ultimately his PhD to study addiction and redefine with recovery actually means. Today on the show he's sharing his story, his struggles with mental health and why he believes that abstinence is a myth. 

Today on the show we're discussing:

  • Dr. Jaffe's story and upbringing
  • How he began dealing drugs and ultimately got caught
  • The "addictive personality" and if it really exists
  • Why he decided to go back to school and study addiction
  • IGNTD and why he believes that abstinence is a myth
  • Redefining what recovery actually looks like
  • Shame and how it plays into addiction
  • ...and so much more!

While the women's health series may be finished, the conversation still continues and today's episode is no exception. Navigating the healthcare system is difficult to begin with, but women have it especially tough with a system that has been built to tailor to conventionally male needs. Changes need to be made, and it starts with conversations like these. Adrienne Nolan-Smith has had her own series of health issues in her lifetime and has dedicated her work to helping others navigate their own health struggles as a certified patient advocate. Today on the show we're discussing her journey to take control of her body and get the resources she needed and how you can do the same.

Today on the show we're discussing:

  • Adrienne's diagnosis of chronic lyme as a teenager
  • Her hormonal struggles and how she found the resources she needed
  • Helping her Mom navigate the mental health system
  • The "disease-care" system and what it means
  • Gaslighting in healthcare and how it affects women
  • Research-based evidence and how to find resources for her own health needs
  • How to make the most of your doctor's appointments.

The female orgasm...how much do you know about it? Today is the fifth installment and last episode of my women's health series so I thought we'd spice things up a bit and discuss how you can have the best big O of your life. And who better to talk on the subject than the orgasm queen herself, Kim Anami.

Kim Anami is a holistic sex + relationship coach, writer and speaker. Her work is a spiritual synthesis of over two decades of Tantra, Taoism, Osho, Transpersonal psychology, philosophy and a host of quantum growth-accelerating practices she uses to propel clients into higher stratospheres of connection, intimacy, energy and creativity. She divides her time between Bali and Los Angeles and a host of beaches in between, where she not only lives and surfs, but lifts objects with her vagina (for real!). Today we'll be chatting all about how to make the most of your sex life and own your sexual power.

We are also discussing:

  • Kim's story and how she became a holistic sex + relationship coach
  • What anami means and how she adopted the name
  • The female orgasm: breaking it down - clitoris vs. g-spot stimulation
  • Ways women can experience more intense orgasms
  • Ways women stand in their own way with the female orgasm
  • The difference between male and female orgasms
  • The Salons including Kim's Latest: The Well F*cked Woman
  • ...and so much more!

We are also discussing:

  • Paula's story and how she became a birth doula
  • Paula's own birth stories with her children

Welcome to the first episode of my women's reproductive health series! I'm thrilled to be kicking it off and sharing this resource with all of you. As women, it is so important we understand what is happening in our bodies and there simply are not enough people talking about this.

For the first episode, I invited Kim Vopni, a pelvic floor and women's empowerment coach onto the show to discuss the importance of the pelvic floor and how to take better care of it.

Today on the show we're discussing:

  • Kim's story and how she become a pelvic floor coach
  • What the heck is the pelvic floor and where is it?

100 episodes! I'll be honest, when I set out to create That's So Maven I wasn't thinking beyond the first 10 episodes, let alone 100 but 100 intros + outros, 93 guests, 7 solo episodes and countless incredible discussions later, we've done it! That's so maven has officially entered triple digits.

I've known for a while now what I wanted to discuss on episode 100. This past year has been nothing short of transformational. Yoga teacher training, getting married, creating Camp Wellness have all been monumental, but the mindset shift that's taken place has changed me deeply as a person. For lack of a better description, I've had a spiritual awakening and that's what I'll be discussing today.

For a long time (more than I'd like to admit) I judged people who had experiences like these. The people who suddenly became so enlightened and wielded their crystals around like a gift from the universe. I am certainly not "enlightened" and while I live my crystals as one of the many tools I use to support my mental, emotional and spiritual health, I don't think they're the answer to everything. BUT I have woken up to a new perspective on seeing the world and truly for the first time in my life am letting go of the reigns and putting more trust in the possibility of the universe to deliver exactly what I want and need.

Yes I just typed that.

So like I said, I judged these types of people...hard. And now I am one of those people. So obviously something has shifted and on today's episode - episode 100 no less!- I'm chatting about my spiritual awakening and what's really been going on in my life this past year. From yoga, to journaling, to crystals + spirits, a lot has happened so come along as I share the ride.

What is breathwork? If I got a nickel for every time I answered this question I'd be rich! To be fair, it's usual my fault they're asking the question since more often than not I'm the person who brings it up. But it's true, ever since discovering breathwork a few years ago, I've been obsessed. That doesn't really answer the question "what is breathwork?" now does it? Good thing I have the perfect guest on the show today sharing her knowledge and wisdom of breathwork with you. Kay Ellis is a breathwork and yoga instructor, practicing buddhist and all around incredible human. We met last year and pretty much from the moment we met it was clear we were connected. I'm grateful to call her a guide and a friend.

Some other things we discussed:

  • How Kay discovered breathwork and began teaching it
  • Her connection to Buddhism and her first introduction at 5 years old
  • What is holotropic breathwork + how Kay's practices differ
  • How to practice breathwork at home
  • What is Bhakti yoga + spreading joy through your practice
  • ...and so much more!

Kindness...it seems so simple right? And still many young women (and men) struggle to be kind to themselves and to others every single day. Why is that? Why do we find it so challenging to extend kindness? Today on the show I'm chatting with Molly Thompson and Lauren Paul of Kind Campaign all about kindness, why it's missing and the long-term effects we're seeing from bullying.

We've all had some kind of experience with bullying. Whether it's as the bully or the victim these traumas stay within us until we confront them. But once we do, we regain the power to put an end to hate. This episode is all about overcoming bullying and the importance of raising women up!

Some other things we discussed:

  • How Lauren and Molly started Kind Campaign
  • The long-term impact of bullying
  • How to move forward after bullying
  • What is I was a bully?
  • How to be kinder to yourself and to others
  • ...and so much more!

Episode 94 with Tiila Abbitt from Aether Beauty

Clean Beauty 5X5 Series

It's been a while since we had any nutrition talk around here! To be honest, a lot of it stems from feeling like I'm in a good place with my body and my diet that sometimes knowing less is actually better for me. That being said, this show isn't just about me and I think it's important to jump into topics that I may not implement but could be helpful to other people. So today Dr. Josh Axe (yes - THE Dr. Axe!) is on the show today talking about the keto diet, intermittent fasting and how to tackle inflammation through diet.

Fair warning: This episode may be triggering to people with a history of an eating disorder or who may be sensitive to diet talk. Weight-loss is mentioned and using diets to lose weight is a topic of conversation. While I do my best to try to keep this space body positive, I also am not here to edit my guests and I think it's important I keep an open mind with every interview, even if I don't necessarily agree. BUT one of the best parts of not agreeing with someone is also seeing how you can maintain respect for one another and meet each other in the middle. 

Some other things we discussed:

  • Who should be doing the keto diet?
  • Changes in your diet to help with inflammation
  • Using essential oils to support your overall health
  • Is celery juice all it's cracked up to be?
  • ...and so much more!

It all started with an email. The Liveli team reached out asking if I was interested in trying some of their products and I'll be honest, my initial reaction was to say no. I get pitched daily to try out a new and innovative product and 99.9% of the time I say no. The wellness space can be overwhelming and I don't believe you need a ton of products to feel good in your body. Not to mention the fact that most brands sending products are doing so with some strings attached.

But this email was different. Not only did their story catch my attention, but they weren't asking for anything in return- simply to try, and enjoy and provide them with any feedback I may have for them. No blog posts, or Instagram shares. Just my true and honest feedback. Now there's something I could get down with.

So What Is Liveli?

Liveli is a line of supplements made from biologically active vitamins, minerals, botanicals and precursors that are most proven to elevate the ease of body and mind. They have three lines: Focus Clearli (my fave!), Restore Dayli and Sleep Peacefulli. What I love about Liveli's line is that it's not just vitamins and minerals. They've incorporated herbs and plant medicine that can work in conjunction with vitamins and minerals to make the most effective supplements. And even better, they've formulated it into two pills so you're not taking 234628394 different pills all at once.

For example, Focus Clearli, which helps with focus and concentration is a blend of: Bacopa, Ginseng, B12 and L-tyrosine (among several others)...

Better yet, the story behind Liveli is nothing short of inspiring. Founded by a husband and wife team of MDs after Dr. James Lee was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2010. Dr. James and Dr. Tess began their own supplement routine to help support Dr. James' recovery and improve his brain health. They realized they were onto something and began prescribing a similar routine to their patients and saw incredible results. From their own experience they founded Liveli and the rest is history. After trying out the products for myself and falling in love with them, I reached out to the team asking if Dr. James and Dr. Tess would be willing to come on the show and share their story. I'm thrilled they agreed and today I'm sharing this informative episode all about brain health with you.

We talk a lot on here about how to nourish and move our bodies but what about how we manage our energy? And no, not just how many cups of coffee are your drinking a day...The more I dive deep into the world of yoga and develop more connection to spirituality, the more I have come to understand the value of energy and more specifically, our energetic bodies. How are we caring for ourselves? How are we setting boundaries? How are we nourishing our souls? The questions keep coming up in my own life and I knew it was time to have a candid conversation about it here on the show. Luckily, I knew just the person to have it with and I'm thrilled to welcome Deborah Hanekamp aka Mama Medicine onto the podcast today.

It truly is hard to describe the work that Deborah does (hence why she's on the podcast!) but in essence, she brings 17 years of healing modalities into a specifically curated space for each client. Every session begins with an aura reading and ends with a prescriptive ritual bath. It's not meant to replace conventional or traditional medicine but instead to work with it. Oftentimes helping uncover a deeply seeded trauma that's been hiding in your body. As someone who carries their own trauma that can oftentimes be felt physically and most definitely, emotionally this resonates deeply with me. We're also chatting about sound healing, integrating the shadow and how to turn into your own energetic power. It's a good one!

Clean Beauty 5 x5 video!: http://bit.ly/clean-foundations

If you saw my post on Monday you know that clean beauty/makeup is something that's been on my mind a lot recently. It's been wonderful to see the incredible array of products now available in the clean beauty space, but it's also making it increasingly more confusing. How does one determine what's a quality product from one that isn't? What about sustainability and packaging? That's why I invited the incredible Tiila Abbitt, founder of Aether Beauty on the podcast today to discuss just that: how to make cleaner makeup choices and also support the environment. 

Tiila started off her career in beauty working at Sephora in their product innovation group. It's no surprise she learned a ton from this experience which she's now brought to her latest venture, Aether Beauty. Aether is not only a cleaner, more sustainable makeup brand, they're also blurring the lines between makeup and spirituality. As I've begun experiencing a spiritual awakening of sorts (more on this soon), I love anyone who is considering spirituality as they develop new products. This is a great conversation for anyone looking to convert their makeup bag to cleaner products and be more intentional about their makeup choices.

The Art of Gathering...what does this really mean? To be honest, up until a few months ago I didn't think too much about the art of gathering, or if it existed at all. People can simply just come together in a space and enjoy themselves, right? Wrong. While gatherings can certainly happen spontaneously and still be enjoyable, there is much more to a successful and meaningful gathering. And the work that you put in ahead of time certainly is worth it. How do we know this? Thanks to Priya Parker, a conflict-resolution mediator and gatherings consultant.

Priya is also the founder of Thrive Labs, where she helps activists, elected officials, corporate executives, educators, and philanthropists create transformative gatherings. She's the author of The Art of Gathering and is truly transforming the thought and practice that goes into creating meaningful gatherings, something that we do every day of our lives. This episode is applicable to everybody, whether you love to host dinner parties, find yourself in frequent meetings at your office or are deep in the wedding season circuit. There's something for everyone!

Listen to last year's episode with Curt: http://bit.ly/2STXcYC

It's the Valentine's Day episode! Or at least, it's the day before Valentine's Day...you get it! After last year's episode with my husband (then fiancé) Curt Lederle seemed to really resonate with you guys so I asked if he'd come back and join me again this year. Fortunately, I didn't seem to traumatize him too much after last year's episode and he happily said yes. So today's episode is all about what's changed, what hasn't changed and what's coming up next now that we're married.

A few other topics we tackle:

  • Did we know we were meant to be together when we met?
  • How we managed long distance
  • Best advice for supporting your SO when they’re going through job searching and transitioning jobs?
  • Is Curt into health and wellness?
  • What are you two most excited about that’s coming up?

Human Design - Have you heard of it? Up until a few months ago I hadn't either. As a total astrology and personality testing nerd, it's no surprise that as soon as I discovered Human Design, I was obsessed. In some ways I believe that the universe meant for me to discover it because for months I kept having people bring it up with me and ask me what my design is? I knew it was time to dig in full-force when past podcast guest, Kelsey Patel connected me with a Human Design reader. And that's how I met today's podcast guest, Amanda Green from Intuitive Galaxy.

I love when I meet readers and people who follow The Healthy Maven and they're surprised that I'm pretty much the same human in person as I am online. I suck at lying so even if I wanted to live an alternate persona, there's no way anyone would buy it. Of course, I tend to have the same reaction when I meet people in real life. I'm not going to lie, I've been disappointed a few times, but most of the time it's pretty much as expected. And then sometimes you meet someone you follow and they're not only as cool as their online persona, but actually cooler. This, my friends, is Lily Diamond. I had the privilege of meeting Lily a few months ago during our trip with Earthbound Farms. Meeting Lily was like meeting a way cooler version of myself while simultaneously hoping she doesn't think I'm a huge weirdo (I am for the record). She's just one of those people.

I think what I admire most about Lily is how she keeps it real. I've always valued authenticity. Not in the 2019 sense of overexposure and word vomit vulnerability, but in being thoughtful with your words and sharing with intention. So today on the show we're chatting about honesty, Lily's own health and wellness journey and how she's navigated many shifts in her life. It's a good one!
