Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your kind words about Bella. I’ve spent the week just taking time to sit in the sadness and heal a bit, and your kind words have helped to carry me through this difficult time.

I’ve got a new episode of the podcast live today and I’m chatting with Dr. Jannine Krause about stress.

Here’s what we discuss:

Stress! Practices and habits we can implement to help our stress response

How stress and inflammation affect aging

Tips for longevity

How to encourage a healthy digestive system and gut microbiome

Here’s more about Dr. Jannine if you’ haven’t *met* her yet:

Dr. Jannine Krause is a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist who specializes in anti-aging medicine by helping her patients improve their health and reverse the signs of aging by focusing on nutrition, mobility and stress reduction.

Dr. Krause’s unique approach to wellness is simplifying natural medicine and healthy habit formation. She believes that health starts with what we eat, how we move and how well we manage stress. She wants to help prevent little health issues from becoming big ones down the road. She’s committed to slowing down the aging process and wants to help others with this too. There’s a lot of health information available out there, and she’s here to help people focus on what’s important and sustainable for them.
