Dr. Elana interviews biological dentist, Dr. Leedia who is revolutionizing the way we think about oral health. Her approach focuses on overall wellness, long-term disease prevention, and empowerment through education. As a mother of two wonderful girls, Dr. Leedia recognizes the importance of women's dental health and early childhood dental education, making these areas a particular focus in her practice.

Currently, dental decay is the most common chronic disease in children worldwide, causing pain and trauma that is preventable. To combat this issue, Dr. Leedia created a course to teach parents the techniques she uses to reverse small cavities and bolster children's oral health.

In this episod, Dr. Leedia teaches us how and why kids are prone to cavities, what we can do as proactive parents to prevent and reverse dental cavities, and reviews essential information all parents should know about their kid’s teeth starting before the teeth even erupt!

Topics Discussed:

  • The anatomy of a child’s mouth and how a cavity can form

  • How early a child can have a cavity 

  • Why some kids are more susceptible to cavities

  • 3 Tips every mom needs to know for optimizing her child’s oral health and avoid cavities 

  • What foods to avoid (even “healthy foods”) that can contribute to cavities 

  • The importance of baby teeth

  • The importance of oral health before teeth come in

  • How dental health before age 2 can impact oral health in adult life

Show Notes:

Dr. Leedia is a biological dentist who is revolutionizing the way we think about oral health. Her approach focuses on overall wellness, long-term disease prevention, and empowerment through education. As a mother of two wonderful girls, Dr. Leedia recognizes the importance of women's dental health and early childhood dental education, making these areas a particular focus in her practice.

In Dr. Leedia's Beverly Hills office, she offers a range of integrative dental therapies, including integrative dental extractions, responsible cosmetic dentistry, biomimetic fillings, safe mercury removal and detox, ozone therapies, micronutrient testing, an airway centric approach to dental care and so much more. While these may seem like disparate treatments, they all address the root cause of the most prevalent dental issue: decay. Currently, dental decay is the most common chronic disease in children worldwide, causing pain and trauma that is preventable. To combat this issue, Dr. Leedia created a course to teach parents the techniques she uses to reverse small cavities and bolster children's oral health.

Dr. Leedia's dedication to dental health extends beyond children. She recognizes that over 65% of women suffer from dental disease concurrent with pregnancy, and that inflammation in the mouth is linked to premature labor, low birth weight, heart disease, and more. This realization has prompted her to put a spotlight on the importance of women's dental health and the impact that hormones have on the oral cavity. By educating and empowering women and fostering collaboration between the medical and dental worlds, Dr. Leedia is helping patients achieve optimal whole body health.

Her dedication to her patients is evident in everything she does. She practices biological dentistry with her brother, Dr. Rashad, and together they bring over 32 years of experience to their work. They are passionate about creating seismic shifts in the world of dental health, one patient at a time. Their approach honors each patient as an individual, recognizing the unique needs and concerns that each brings to their practice.

Steph interviews Nicole Katz, a mother of two, long time yoga therapist and yogi of over 20 years. In this episode, they discuss how little we support moms during the birthing process and how that greatly affects their mothering journeys afterwards. They share why women should feel like a goddess during labor and how to create the most goddess like experience for yourself. Nicole gives listeners tools to support their birth and/or heal from a difficult birth and why that’s important as you approach motherhood.

Topics Discussed:

  • What it means to have feel like a goddess in labor

  • How women can have informed and empowered births

  • How your experience during labor impacts motherhood

  • How to set yourself up for a smooth postpartum

  • How to navigate trauma and unmet expectations

Show Notes:

Nicole Katz is a mother of two, long time yoga therapist and yogi of over 20 years. After the birth of her first daughter Nicoles eyes were opened to just how little we support moms during the birthing process and how that greatly affects their mothering journeys afterwards. Since that point Nicole has shifted her work to focus on maternal support. Currently Nicole lives in NYC where she works privately and in small group settings supporting moms in many ways from prep for labor to birth education to birth trauma work and beyond. She is over the moon to announce that her conference Rebranding Birth will premier in NYC this fall with the aim of informing and empowering women in a much larger scale. It’s time to Rebrand Birth!

Show Notes:

“You’re learning how to mother children, but you’re also learning how to mother yourself—which is a different version of you from the you before Motherhood.”

Ciara Burton known as “The Life Coach for Moms,” has created a unique brand that’s freeing Mothers of anxiety and uncertainty by helping them return “HOME” to themselves. 

Her unconventional approach has helped hundreds of women heal from toxic patterns and routines that have ultimately become blockages to happiness and success. 

In her course Becoming Her; The Next Evolution women awaken to the life they WANT while transforming the “complacent” one they’ve found themselves in - one that looked good on paper, but felt far from fulfilling… 

Within Becoming Her, Ciara’s clients go from breaking free from constant questioning, the desire to “get it right” and be “liked”  - to owning their value and living life on their own terms all WHILE showing their kids how to do the same. A Mother unleashed and able to express herself freely in the world, is one of the greatest gifts we can give our next generation.
