Highlights

How do you know if you have autoimmune, what do you do
about it?  What is it even, I have a soft place in my heart for this because I have Hashimoto and you know, I didn't know what that was.  I didn't know what was wrong with me. And I struggled with, you know, weird illnesses for so many years. 

3:51

Okay. So I am classically trained as a chiropractor, but that wasn't quite
enough for me. So I went and I got my masters in human nutrition and
functional medicine because I love nutrition and healing the body with food.

The Power of Retreats to Transform You

 

In May of 2012, I went on my first transformational retreat that completely changed my life. At the time, I was in such a desperate place that I was ready to try anything. I was 50 lbs. overweight, drinking a bottle (or two) of wine every night, working 70 hrs./week, traveling 3 – 4 weeks out of the month…all while my mother was suffering from severe mental illness 3,000 miles away.

Yeah. Life Sucked.

At the time, I knew exercise would help. I knew I had to drink less. I knew I needed to meditate. I knew I needed to change my dietary habits. I knew I needed more balance.

But I was completely stuck and overwhelmed at the idea of “doing one more thing.”

I knew in my gut I had to get away and completely break my routine of working, drinking, caring for others day in and day out. After a lot of research with Google, I ended up finding an outfit in Sedona, AZ.

I scheduled a consultation call with a guide to review my workshop and session options. The price was...

Episode 90 - Best of the Fitlandia Podcast : #60 Jumping Into Keto with Leanne Vogel

If you have been contemplating a switch from carb-loading to fat-fueling, today’s repeat of an interview with guest Leanne Vogel is for you! Join Christa and Leanne as they discuss overcoming fears and getting in touch with your core desired feelings along the way to permanent lifestyle change. They also address important distinctions between healthy and unhealthy approaches to a keto diet.

Leanne started studying nutrition in 2007 to help her better understand her body and how it worked with the foods she was putting into it. Originally going to school to help herself, she discovered after graduation that she had learned too much not to help other people and that’s when her blog, “Healthful Pursuit” was born.

Being a super athlete, Leanne noticed after years of not having her menstrual cycle that she wasn’t performing at her best and was continually struggling to put on muscle. This sparked her interest in regulating her cycle, but after starting...

Episode 89 - Best of the Fitlandia Podcast : #41 With JP Sears

Does your nutrition dogma get in the way of the wisdom of your body?  Do you rationalize your commitment to a food paradigm instead of honoring when change is called for? Do you have unresolved emotional pain that expresses as self-sabotage when it comes to your wellness? Harness the power of your mind to re-evaluate your perspective with a sense of humor, common sense, and a great deal of gentleness.

Today, enjoy a reboot of an honest, compassionate, and funny conversation between host Christa King of Fitlandia, and guest celebrity JP Sears.

Here’s what JP had to say:

“From the bottom of my heart, I would dare say, virtually anything the American Heart Association says deserves to be flushed down the toilet.”

Because of the corporate agenda and funding into research, these studies aren’t for the greater good of people, but instead putting dollars into their pockets. Christa concurs. She points out that there is conflicting info in the industry and JP...

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
