Today we are talking with Amie Valpone, an author and health advocate from New York City. Amie hosts all of her ideas on thehealthyapple.com and is the best-selling author of Eating Clean: The 21 Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body. Amie had a health crisis in her own life, and when conventional medicine was not able to find solutions for her, she went looking for something different. She was on a quest, and eventually she became an evangelist. In this episode we talk about mold, Lyme disease, endocrine disorders and truly re-discovering health. Amie talks about being outside of her body; living a corporate lifestyle where she pushed and pushed, and then finally understanding what it meant to feel what was inside of her. Amie is a beautiful example of taking what is handed to you and turning it into something absolutely incredible. This interview was enlightening for me, and I hope it will be for you as well.

Today we are talking to Dr. Denis Wilson, an integrative practitioner practicing in Florida, as well as an entrepreneur, with a passion for understanding the tempo and the temperature of life. Dr. Wilson doesn’t just have a passing interest in thyroid health, he has a thyroid syndrome named after him. He is kind, witty and knowledgeable about a topic that affects so many of us — adrenal and thyroid health. Dr. Wilson explains that the thyroid gland sets the pace of life.

Key Takeaways:

[:29] Thank you to our sponsor, Legacy.

[7:17] 37 degrees Celsius is a good baseline body temperature.

[8:20] The creator of the TSH blood test was worried that doctors would put too much store in the test and ignore other signs and symptoms of thyroid dysfunction.

[17:09] How does Dr. Wilson manage stress?

[18:57] What are some common symptoms of adrenal fatigue?

[20:42] Dr. Wilson likes to try treating his patients with “potent groceries,” before running “a ton of tests.”

[22:15] Dr. Wilson uses therapies to reboot hormone pathways.

[25:19] Can someone come off of thyroid medication?

[27:16] What about autoimmune thyroid conditions like Hashimoto’s and Grave’s?

[28:53] How can low temperatures lead to autoimmune conditions?

[31:08] Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome is a reversible problem.

[34:02] Dr. Wilson absolutely tests temperature on every patient he sees.

Today we talk to Dr. Andrew Blackwood, a psychotherapist focused on family and marriage counseling, with particular interest in family of origin. He is about to release a book about how to craft the perfect apology. Andrew has kind eyes, a warm heart, and a whole lot of wisdom. He is equal parts compassion and call to action. Our conversation today is full of pure gold, and I know you’re going to love it.

 

Key Takeaways:

[:29] Thank you to our sponsor, Legacy.

[2:19] Dr. Blackwood’s parents divorced when he was 13, but that wasn’t the main thing that led him to marriage and family counseling.

[4:46] The incidence of mental health challenges is particularly high in entrepreneurs, and that is often linked to family relationships.

[6:07] To what extent does our family of origin determine our destiny?

[6:58] Awareness is so important to our success in family relationships.

[9:08] What is the difference between worry and concern?

[10:13] Is parent/child conflict a natural part of individuation?

[13:23] Family dynamics influence, but do not dictate, identity.

[17:40] There are specific characteristics that help entrepreneurs forge their own path.

[19:21] Should we all be in therapy?

[21:32] The partners of entrepreneurs have a lot of added stressors. It is helpful, but not always possible, for them to know what they are signing up for.

[25:04] Making a genuine apology is an art.

[31:29] Health is intrinsically connected to growth.

[32:08] To take this month’s quiz about stress and adrenal fatigue at meghanwalker.com/entrepologyquiz.
