There’s nothing like challenging our inner badass than having a dysfunction in our pelvic floor. And today we’re going to talk all about it (and more!) with my guest, Chana Ross. Chana is a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist and the owner of Vital Physiotherapy and Wellness here in Toronto, Canada. She is an absolute expert in her field and she is going to give us the low-down on what we need to know about our pelvic floor and what we can do about improving it!


While it’s easy to joke about the leakage that may occur while performing certain tasks or while playing with your kids, it is sad to me that most of us are not given the opportunity to rehabilitate our bodies and connect with them the way we could if we were working with a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist. I wish for every woman not to have to wear big, plastic underwear in order to feel confident in leaving her house — and instead be able to handle that situation themselves.

 

So today we’re getting the lowdown on pelvic floor physio — what you need to know, what you can do about it, and the signs and symptoms that you need to be aware of!

My guest today is up to something very cool! We met each other at an event that I was speaking at a few months ago and when Angela Kelly and I introduced ourselves to each other and I asked her what she did, she said that she was a cricket entrepreneur. And to say the least, I was intrigued. I had only eaten cricket once before in the form of a protein bar when I was 4 months pregnant.

 

I was totally curious how this woman was not only interested in and came upon crickets, but how she was building an entire business out of it! Well, Angela shares all of that with us today. We not only talk about the health benefits of crickets — but we also talk about the steps you need to take to actually launch a food product. And what’s so cool about this is that we talk specifically about how Toronto is an excellent center and has incredible resources for those who have really cool food products they want to bring to the market.


This podcast hits all of the marks on everything that’s important to us here at Entrepology: health, entrepreneurship, and badassery — because frankly, eating bugs is the most badass things I’ve ever heard of.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:42] About my guest today, Angela Kelly.

More About Angela Kelly

Angela Kelly is the founder and CEO of Fit Cricket Nutrition, based in Toronto, Ontario. Her product, Fit Cricket Nutrition, is cricket-based nutrition in the form of protein bars and cricket powder. Not only are crickets healthy for you — they’re healthy for the planet too!

 

As Angela explains, “They offer a sustainable and complete protein and a lot of it! Most plant-based proteins are incomplete and need to be paired with other proteins to get the full amino acid spectrum the body needs, whereas crickets already contain all 9 essential amino acids.” Cricket powder provides almost 3x the amount of protein than beef, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, contains a perfect Omega-6 to -3 ratio for the human body, and is a great source of fiber and Vitamin B12. Crickets also promote an optimal microbiome! They’re also very sustainable; if one family of four ate insect protein once a week over the span of a year they would save the planet 650,000L of fresh water.

 

Fit Cricket Protein Bars are 10g of protein in just a 50g serving size using cricket powder as our second ingredient (of only 8) so you are really reaping the nutritional benefits of crickets. They are gluten, soy, dairy- and nut-free, NON-GMO and have no refined sugars.

Today I want to speak about what gets in the way of accessing your inner badass, and that is this particular feeling. I don’t have a word for it, but I can describe it: it’s that feeling when you walk into a room, have an interaction with someone, and then depart that interaction feeling absolutely drained. In my practice, I’ve observed that women, more than men, are attuned to these feelings. And the unfortunate part is, these feelings can penetrate into our relationships, get in the way of our productivity, and can get in the way of our ability to amplify within our businesses.

 

My guest today, Art Giser, is an expert in removing and clearing this energy. He’s been an Energetic NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner for the last 30 years and has a particular focus in working with mission-driven individuals to help them understand and tap into their own energetics, their own energetic karma, and how to get rid of other people’s energy so you can accelerate in the mission you were meant to do. This is one of those factors that is a below-the-surface secret to success!

More About Art Giser

Art Giser was awed by how many people could transform their lives using NLP and he was awed how people could transform their lives using transformative energy work, intuition development, and spiritual development.

 

He began to explore combining these different areas in order to create something that was more powerful than any one system alone. The result is Energetic NLP.

 

Over the last 32 years, Art has continued to develop Energetic NLP into the wonderful field that it is today.

 

Infamous for his innate sense of fun, his mischievous way of training and his light-hearted approach, your days with Art will be full of light, joy and a lot of laughter! Art is known for his ability to make complex matters simple and easy to understand. This probably comes from his 11 years managing a research lab for the University of California San Francisco Medical School, 33 years as a life and executive coach, and his 32 years helping corporations develop leaders and high performing teams.

 

Art has over 33 years experience in and study of NLP, science, psychic development, and energetic and spiritual healing. He studied with all of the major developers of NLP including Richard Bandler, John Grinder, Leslie Cameron-Bandler, Michael Lebeau, David Gordon, Robert Dilts, and Steve and Connie Ray Andreas. He was also part of the NLP research team headed by Leslie Cameron-Bandler, David Gordon, and Michael Lebeau that developed Imperative Self Analysis. He was one of the first two trainers certified by them to teach Imperative Self Analysis. He has also studied intensively with a diverse group of spiritual teachers, intuitives, and healers including John Friedlander — author and teacher, John Fulton — founder of Aesclepion, Joseph Martinez — former president of the Philippine Psychic Healers Association of America, and John Norman.

My guest today, Erin Wathen, is a food expert. She came to understand how we diet and why we don’t do well on them after her own personal journey of yo-yo dieting — starting from when she was only 15 years old. This is a story that so many of us can relate to but don’t know how to break free from.

 

In this episode, Erin talks extensively about food addiction and we go into great detail about how it’s not food that we are after, but actually, feelings that we are chasing. More explicitly, it’s actually a neurochemical reaction that we are trying to elicit. All of us on some level have a challenge with food addiction. And today, Erin breaks it all down for us. She explains how emotional components come into play with unhealthy eating habits, why we gain weight in the first place, how to stop yo-yo dieting and become a mindful eater, the connection between the food we choose to eat and its influence on our sleep and she gives us her five essential tips to literally be healthier by the end of this week!

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:33] About my guest today, Erin Wathen.

[3:08] Welcoming Erin to the podcast.

[3:15] Erin takes us through her personal and professional story.

[10:02] The emotional component of eating.

[15:27] How do we spot food addiction in our own lives?

[19:57] How to address food addiction head on.

More About Erin Wathen

Erin Wathen is a holistic health coach, food abuse counselor and the author of Why Can’t I Stick to My Diet?: How To End The Food Drama. Originally from the West Coast, Erin worked in human resources in NYC for many years.

As a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and a Food Addiction Counselor (INFACT), Erin understands the science behind health. As a Certified Spinning® Instructor (STAR 3), Vinyasa Yoga instructor (200 Hour) and Classical
Pilates instructor, she understands the mechanics of health as well. Fortunately,
she also knows how to break it all down into everyday language for her clients.

Despite her wealth of knowledge on diet and exercise, Erin was not at peace with her body. She found true nutrition to be the missing piece of the puzzle. She was always on a diet and yet never reached her goal weight. Through a lot of trial and error, Erin found her last diet, which became her food plan and the basis of her book, Why Can’t I Stick to My Diet? The book is currently available online at Amazon and will be available in bookstores November 2018.

Her philosophy simply put: Health isn’t a number on the scale or how often
we exercise, but our lives as a whole. She partners with her clients to work on
solutions that fit into their lifestyle, empowering them to live their healthiest life
in our crazy world.

Don’t eat close to bedtime — eating before bed leads your body to digest food during the night and creates a domino effect of fatigue going into your next day. When you eat right (and in turn, improve your sleep) your health and life will dramatically improve. More sleep means making healthier choices during the day, and a healthy diet is a key to feeling better!

My guest today is someone I have known and respected for a very long time. She is the epitome of a go-getter; she is an entrepreneur, a colleague, and a naturopathic doctor. She’s immensely passionate around one of the most foundational things we look at as NDs — that’s also probably the least favorite thing you talk about as health seekers or as patients — and that is: poo.

 

If we’re going to talk about bowel movements, we’re going to bring someone in who can do it in not only an eloquent and passionate way but someone who literally describes poo and bowel movements as their life mission. Dr. Marisol is known as the Queen of Thrones, and today she is going to take us through what it means to actually have a perfect poo. If that isn’t enticing enough, we’re also going to talk about her product line, how she has integrated health and entrepreneurship, and how she taps into the feelings that she wants to be able to impart to the people in her life on a daily basis.

 

Key Takeaways:

[14:00] What is the perfect poo? The 11 golden nuggets about a good stool.

[19:03] Dr. Marisol explains the importance of your stool length.

[19:59] What is the ideal amount of pooping you should be doing a day?
