CBD is all the rage these days, but did you know that there's more than just one type of cannabinoid? Ever heard of CBN or CBG? What about pairing CBD with herbal medicine? Where are you sourcing your CBD from? These are all important questions that we have yet to tackle here on the podcast. So today I invited Prismatic Plants founder, Sarah Polansky onto the show to share all of her CBD and herbalism wisdom with us today.

After struggling with a parasite and prolonged antibiotic use, Sarah turned to alternative medicine to help restore her gut. In the process she discovered how many women are also struggling with similar and sometimes unknown issues that could benefit from plant-based medicine. But as Cannabis (and CBD specifically) gets more and more popular, it's important to discuss where it is coming from and the effects it is having on the body. So today we're diving deep and getting the down low on CBD. We're also chatting about:

  • All about Sarah's health journey and how she found plant-based medicine
  • Cannabinoids and how they affect your body
  • The inspiration behind starting Prismatic Plants 
  • Beyond CBD - different types of cannabinoids i.e. CBG, CBN etc..
  • CBD for energy and how to pair it with herbs
  • The biggest myths about CBD and what's coming up next for cannabis
  • ...and so much more!

While I absolutely love having discussions around wellness week-to-week, at times this space can feel quite insular and exclusive. My hope with the podcast is to use this platform to share with voices that are often ignored or overlooked. It's important that we remember that a) health and wellness looks different on everyone and b) every body is deserving of health and wellness. That's why I am thrilled to have Ariel Lawrence on the show today sharing more about her experience with Type 1 Diabetes and the advocacy work she does with marginalized communities with diabetes.

Today we are discussing Ariel's own journey with type 1 diabetes and why she uses her platform, Just a Little Suga' to raise awareness around diabetes. We're also chatting about:

  • The difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes
  • The treatment for type 1 diabetes
  • The experience of marginalized communities with diabetes
  • Why she started her blog, Just a Little Suga'
  • How she is increasing inclusivity in the diabetes community and beyond
  • Her favorite resources when it comes to diabetes awareness and education
  • ...and so much more!

This week's episode is jam-packed! Brain health is something I'm deeply passionate about both because of my past work in brain imaging research but also from my own struggles with mental health. I'm both fascinated by and mystified by the brain. For something that has so much power, there's little we know about it. But in today's episode we're demystifying the brain and talking about how you can actually change it with neuroscientist, Dr. Andrew Hill. Dr. Hill is the founder of Peak Brain Institute which uses neurofeedback to help its clients tackle everyday and chronic concerns.

Dr. Hill holds a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from UCLA, and is a peak performance coach and EEG scientist with a practical emphasis of optimizing executive function and improving brain performance at any age though EEG biofeedback, or neurofeedback, and an advocate of understanding our brains through QEEG Brain Mapping. Here are some of the many topics we discuss in today's episode:

  • Dr. Hill's journey and what made him decide to pursue a PhD in neuroscience
  • Founding Peak Brain Institute and what neurofeedback means
  • Different brain waves and how they change our physiological state
  • Using neurofeedback to change chronic conditions and habits
  • Meditation and how it can work in conjunction with neurofeedback
  • Brain mapping and what your brain can really tell you.
  • ...and so much more!

It truly is one of the only snacks we can both agree on (much to my disappointment because he always eats them and leaves me empty-handed!).
