Interstitium: Bringing It All Together

Jan 22, 2019

Many of you who have listened to a few of my Core Connections Podcast episodes or are a member of my Prenatal + Postnatal Membership, know how much I LOVE talking about fascia. In this episode, I’m kicking it up a notch and talking about your interstitium. What is interstitium? According to Tom Meyers of Anatomy Trains, interstitium is,

“The interstitium is a body-wide communicating system for the push and pull of mechanical information. A system of collagen and elastin fibers suspended in a mucousy gel that binds with interstitial fluid. This system is closely aligned with our lymphatic system and the white blood cells of our immune system.”

The great news is by improving the energy flow through your body you can improve the flow of you interstitium while improving your overall body function. Why you might ask? Because everything in your body is connected!

You better fasten that seatbelt for today’s episode because I am going to be throwing a lot of...

1. CRUNCHES ARE THE BEST WAY TO STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE

How To Enjoy The Stuffing Without Becoming Stuffed

Nov 15, 2018

1. TASTE EVERYTHING. EAT NOTHING.

Now don't take this literally... but try everything and then only eat the things you absolutely love. Except maybe the gluten If you currently are gluten-free, keep in mind that eating gluten even at just one meal can take months to completely get out of your body. I always recommend bringing a gluten-free option for everyone to enjoy!

Thanksgiving Trick: Don't tell anyone that it is a gluten-free dish and see if they notice! They might find that they like the gluten-free option better! #sneakysneakymama (DM me on Instagram and let me know if it worked!)

2. DON'T BINGE

It's never worth it and it makes you feel like a cornucopia! Eat until you are no longer hungry and stop before you are full. One of the best things about holiday meals are the leftovers so don't over do it in one meal - save plenty for leftovers for the family to enjoy for the next couple of days.

3. ENJOY YOUR FOOD

Meaning chew your food s l o w l y...

Collagen: Your Natural Anti-Aging Solution

Nov 07, 2018

The topic of collagen has been buzzing around, especially in the anti-aging world. I wanted to answer a lot of your questions and separate truth from fiction when it comes to collagen + your body!

WHAT IS COLLAGEN?

Collagen is the protein that forms the connective tissue throughout your body (a.k.a. FASCIA).

Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but as we enter our late 20s and early 30s, the natural collagen production begins to slow and eventually decline. This is when visible signs of aging come to the surface such as fine lines and wrinkles.  

As we age, it becomes increasingly important to replenish the collagen in our bodies because collagen can help strengthen our bones, fights away signs of aging and builds better fascia that acts as a web around and through our muscles and organs, can even help keep our bones strong and much more! 

HOW CAN I ADD COLLAGEN INTO MY DIET?

Collagen is naturally found in many foods and can easily be incorporated...

Postpartum Questions Answered!

Oct 18, 2018

The first weeks postpartum are extremely magical and challenging all at the same time. I know how hard it can be to navigate your way through this stage with the hormones, body changes and sleep deprivation. Over the past 15 years of working with postpartum clients and going through this 3 times myself, I wanted to share with you some of my tips that can help ease you into this new stage of your life!

1. ENJOY THE BONDING TIME WITH YOUR BABY! 

Even in the midst of all the chaos, sleep deprivation, body changes and the fog of hormones, enjoy the moments with your new bundle of joy.

2. ASK FOR HELP!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking for help! In fact, I recommend setting this up ahead of time with a friend, family member or even hiring yourself a housekeeper to help clean your house as this can help minimize your stress level and allow you to enjoy bonding time with baby. It also gives you more time to rest,...

Creating Balance + Space Through Your Body

Oct 04, 2018

Creating space and balance in your body can play a big role in how you feel - physically, mentally and emotionally. As we age, there tends to be rounding of the spine and a loss of fluidity between our joints. 

When you can create space in your body and improve the amount + function of your fascia, you could see a huge improvement in how you feel or better yet - PREVENT.

Many women who have followed my programs see drastic improvements in their back pain, neck pain and hip pain in a very short period of time. As you begin to create these new habits, you can feel the activation in your body, feel the connection in your deep core and be able to see the results of your hard work that will benefit you for a lifetime.

HOW DO I START CREATING SPACE IN MY BODY?
