Episode 188: Overcoming Food Fear

Nov 26 • 01:09:18
When you first experience the connection between the food you eat and how you feel, that can be an empowering moment. But when certain foods cause you to flare, that can also inspire a fear of food. This is a natural reaction, but it also has consequences. The fear itself can cause autoimmune flares and also increase food sensitivity, creating a vicious cycle. Suddenly, al...

Nov 12 • 01:16:26
Dr. Aly Cohen is an integrative rheumatologist who blends both conventional and holistic approaches in her medical practice. She's been a great resource for accurate coronavirus information since the pandemic began.

Episode 186: How to Ask for Help with Kalene Khan

Oct 29 • 01:06:44
Human beings depend on each other. Sometimes we give help, and sometimes we receive it, but many of us are much more comfortable in the giving role. Autoimmune disease can turn the tables quickly. Suddenly, we’re in a position where we need help more often. If we were the caregivers before, how do we navigate this change in identity? How do we face the fears that may arise...

Episode 185: Eye Health and Autoimmune Disease with Dr. Rani Banik

Oct 15 • 57:49
I have two friends who were diagnosed with autoimmune disease through a referral from their ophthalmologist. Their first symptoms appeared in their eyes. Across diagnoses, this is common. Eye pain, dryness, swelling, inflammation, vision loss, and double vision - almost every autoimmune diagnosis can include eye symptoms. This is why an ophthalmologist is an important pers...

Episode 184: Anti-Inflammatory Supplements with Dr. Amy Nett

Oct 1 • 01:02:04
Inflammation is a root cause for most chronic disease and it’s a major player in autoimmune disease. That’s why most doctors track inflammation on blood tests, because it often corresponds to autoimmune activity. Many patients find anti-inflammatory supplements helpful. Which ones have the most science behind them? How do they each work in our bodies to reduce inflammation...

Episode 183: Detoxifying Foods with Andrea Nakayama

Sep 17 • 01:04:24
Our bodies naturally have the ability to detoxify and do it every single day. However, problems can develop, and that's not uncommon with autoimmune disease. The answer isn't an aggressive "cleanse" where we try to force our bodies to do a year's worth of detox in 30 days. Instead, we need to support our bodies year-round. There are foods that support our detox pathways, a...

Episode 182: Big Decisions – Big Results

Sep 3 • 01:10:14
When it comes to a healing lifestyle, our daily choices matter. Small steps and habits add up over time, and many of my podcasts teach those skills. Today, we're going in a different direction. There are times when the big picture is overwhelming everything else. It might be a toxic job, a toxic relationship, or a toxic home. Change is rarely easy, even in difficult situat...

Episode 181: Overcoming Bias with Anu Gupta

Aug 20 • 55:42
One thing I love about the autoimmune community in general and the Phoenix Helix community specifically is that we care deeply about each other. We lift each other up, with the goal of living our healthiest and happiest lives. Health involves both self-care and community care, and today's podcast is a blend of the two. I’ve talked about the impact of racism in two prior po...

Episode 180: Body Image and Autoimmune Disease

Aug 6 • 01:00:31
With an autoimmune diagnosis, we are told that we have a disease for which there is no cure. It can be shocking and immediately change how we see ourselves. It's not uncommon to feel betrayed by our bodies. Symptoms can also dramatically change our abilities, impacting careers, hobbies, and roles within families. Many of us go through an identity crisis – no longer feeling...

Episode 179: Vitamin D and Autoimmune Disease with Dr. William Mitchell

Jul 23 • 53:59
Vitamin D is one of the most commonly recommended supplements for people with autoimmune disease, because it's essential to immune system regulation. How do you know if you're deficient? When is sunshine the best source, and when is supplementing a better option? Can you take too much vitamin D? We'll be answering these questions and more in today's podcast. My guest is Dr...
