Today we’re taking a deep dive into pain management — in particular, that chronic, lingering pain that has been in a particular part of your body (especially since we’ve all been sitting for the last year!)

 

I’m joined by my guest today, Dr. Kirstie Griffiths. Dr. Griffiths is a Canadian chiropractor and yoga teacher. Most recently, she’s launched her book, BACK TO WELLNESS: A Mind-Body Approach to Managing Your Back Pain.

 

Together, we’re talking all about the nuances of how we manage both acute and chronic pain, the biohacking (and brain-hacking) of how we actually start to get this pain in order, and some of the things that you can start to do today to manage and overcome your pain (that you may have never even heard of!).

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation into my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics.

Today I am joined by my good friend, Melanie Sutherland. Melanie is a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, an entrepreneur, a mother, and an incredible advocate of women’s health.

 

And what we’re talking about today are the things that we wish women knew before they had a baby to optimize their health and optimize their capacity to execute in the world on the other side of motherhood. Traditionally, one of the biggest challenges in healthcare — and especially for those of us who are passionate about upstream preventative health — is that we’ve been trained by a healthcare system to be reactionary about health. We wait until the problem arises to deal with it. And when it comes to the changes that take place in a woman's body in that prenatal phase and how it influences health on the other side, there are some key elements that you need to be aware of in order to maximize that next phase of life.


What is it that every woman needs to know before they have their baby so that their body is in the best possible shape on the other side? This is what Melanie and I are delving into today. This is a powerful and important conversation and I am excited for you to have the opportunity to join in and meet Melanie and hear all of her incredible insights!

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:00] About today’s episode!

[2:24] Welcoming Melanie to The Entrepology Podcast!

[3:05] Melanie shares what makes her uniquely qualified to lead today’s discussion.
[6:55] Why we need to prioritize ourselves as part of the prenatal experience.

[8:56] The common narratives Melanie is seeing with women in her practice in regards to their pelvic floor and rehabilitation.

[11:44] What do we need to know in the prenatal phase? What can we be doing to make sure that our body is in the best possible shape?

[14:50] What it looks like to prioritize your health before giving birth.

[19:52] How stress and burnout play into our health as new moms.

[21:48] Melanie highlights some key components and tangible elements of health that women should be aware of that can be massive game-changers on the other side of giving birth.

[27:17] The importance of engaging in mindfulness practices.

[30:10] The connection between our pelvic floor and our health in general.

[31:40] Melanie’s KPIs!

[37:19] Where to learn more about the work Melanie is doing in this world!

[37:55] Thanking Melanie for joining the podcast and sharing her insights!

Apr 6, 2021

Today, we’re talking about something that I think is fairly confident is universal for most of you who are tuning in — and that is this concept of having a busy brain. How do we shut off the constant firing? The input? The inboxes?! All of these pieces of information that our brains are handling on a daily basis?

 

To help facilitate this conversation there are a lot of experts that we could have brought on, but I believe there is no better expert suited to this discussion than Dr. Romie Mushtaq! Dr. Romie is an expert on brain health and a triple board-certified neurologist. As someone who is traditionally trained, Dr. Romie has been frustrated by what she has seen over and over again in clinical practice when it comes to the intersection of our hormonal health as women and how that influences the performance of our brains. In particular, she is focused on functional and integrative medicine, the intersection of our hormones and our brains, and how the choices that we make on a daily basis influence what’s happening above our shoulders.

 

In this episode, we’re approaching this conversation from an entirely different angle than we ever have before. Dr. Romie breaks down the concept of a “busy brain,” how we can begin to address it, what a “sensory reset” is and how it can lead us down the path of “turning off” our brains, and everything we need to know about the patterns of inflammation in the brain and how they show up.

 

This is a deeply fascinating conversation and I cannot wait for you all to tune in!

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:21] About today’s episode with Dr. Romie Mushtaq!

[3:00] Welcoming Dr. Romie Mushtaq to the podcast!

[4:03] Dr. Romie shares about her career, her story and path to integrative medicine, and why she is so uniquely positioned to speak about the topic of busy brains!

[6:55] How Dr. Romie began to recognize the connection between hormones and women’s brains in her practice.

[11:39] Dr. Romie speaks about where we are, in terms of acknowledging the intersection and influence of hormones on the brain.

[12:37] Do hormones influence the brain or does the brain influence our hormones?

[14:45] What is the “Busy Brain”?

[17:30] The patterns of inflammation in the brain and how to begin addressing them.

[23:36] You don’t have to be stressed in order to be successful as an entrepreneur!

[25:37] Dr. Romie shares about her recent launch, “brainSHIFT,” at Evolution Hospitality.

[26:11] Dr. Romie describes a part of the “brainSHIFT” protocol called the “sensory reset.”

[28:41] How to assess and address your Busy Brain!

[31:24] How to “turn your brain off.”

[34:24] The connection between our sense of smell and our lifelong memories and encoding.

[37:07] How to do a sensory reset that is perfectly aligned with what you need.

[37:32] Why Dr. Romie recommends we stay away from caffeine and alcohol.

[38:55] What to do at night to sensory reset.

[40:45] Why mindfulness is so key to alleviating a Busy Brain.

[43:58] Dr. Romie’s KPIs!
