My guest today is McCall McPherson, a thyroid expert from Austin, Texas, who started up her own clinic after the previous clinic that had employed her shut down within eight hours of her working there. Through her new clinic, McCall completely changed the paradigm upon which she wanted to deliver care and has been extremely successful in servicing patients — not only in her local community — but in the online space as well.

 

She also started an online, crowd-sourced community after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, that enabled rescuers to reach people in need. Literally overnight, she had thousands of people in this group, and armies of women around the world working to help dispatch rescuers, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars.

 

This woman is a badass encapsulated. This episode we talk about her journey as a practitioner, her philosophy on building a business, and the fundamental skills she has that help her to put all of these pieces in action. If you are looking for inspiration and want to hear the story of someone who is making a true difference, I have it for you here.

Have you ever had this experience where you wake up and you feel like your body is out of control? Painful periods, hot flashes — your symptoms and your body feeling like they’re literally on fire? This is the story of my next guest.

 

Stacey Foat is a naturopathic physician from Australia and she takes us through her journey of recovering from debilitating symptoms related to hormonal imbalances. Stacey happened to be a naturopath when she started to experience these symptoms and was able to draw on her knowledge and overcome her diagnosis — reversing all of the debilitating symptoms simply through lifestyle changes and nutritional and herbal medicine.

 

Since then, Stacey has become incredibly passionate about talking about the upstream causes of hormonal disturbances, looking at ‘PMS’ premenstrual syndrome and breast cancer. She works hard to help hand women the power to control hormones through the decisions that they make every single day.

 

In this episode, Stacey shares things you can start to shift on a daily basis to gain control over those parts of your health that may or may not be signaling you to change.

[16:48] Is moderation key in inflammatory foods and drinks?

More About Stacey Foat

At age 27, Stacey was diagnosed as having commenced menopause, with no explanation as to why. Instead of admitting defeat, Stacey drew on her knowledge as a Naturopath and was able to overcome her diagnosis by addressing the underlying causes. Six months later she had completely reversed all the debilitating symptoms simply through lifestyle changes and nutritional and herbal medicine.

 

Since then, Stacey developed a burning desire to help women suffering from the same issues and has developed several programs that are meant to meld with your lifestyle; allowing you to follow along in your own time and space.
