Dr. Elana interviews Dr. Gabriela Sheets, a human biologist and mama who has spent over a decade researching the early development of the infant microbiome (how babies acquire important microorganisms in and on their bodies). Her research has earned her numerous grants and awards, yet her passion lies in sharing this information with those who can make the most difference for the next generation: moms! 

In her time away from her deliciously wild three year old, Gabriela consults with mamas, practitioners and companies in all things microbiome. To make this valuable and actionable information more widely accessible, Gabriela is developing a series of online educational programs for young families and practitioners. Most recently, she has teamed up with our friends over at Needed to support their prenatal program and to co-develop their upcoming infant/kids line. Gabriela believes we can support human thriving, one mama and baby at a time!

In today’s episode, they discussed how a mom’s microbiome affects babies, what to look for in purchasing probiotics, how to read the labels, testing microbiome health, and more!

We are so grateful to our podcast partner, Needed, for connecting us with Dr. Gabriela. She is such a wealth of knowledge you will love this episode and want to share it with all the mamas you know!  And please don’t forget that Needed continues to come out with new and innovative products! Not only do they offer our favorite prenatal and pre/probiotic, they also just recently came out with a digestive enzyme that is safe during pregnancy and nursing. Their formula contains 14 clinically-backed types of digestive enzymes that support the optimal digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, as well as sensitive foods like dairy, gluten, and legumes, throughout the entire spectrum of your digestive tract.

Dec 27, 2022

There has been a recent threat to homeopathy worrying mothers around the country. Some of us lose sleep at night with the idea that homeopathy may be taken away from us - the idea that we visit our health food store to not see our favorite trusted remedies on the shelves seems unimaginable and quite frankly wrong. We worry for our children, for our grandchildren. Many of us rely on homeopathic remedies to help our children when sick - they are our go-to Doctor Mom tool. How can this be?

Rest assured mama - we are FIGHTING and we are fighting hard. And we have an amazing organization called Americans for Homeopathy Choice who are well prepared, organized, and have already proven to have an effective voice to make CHANGE!

Please welcome to today’s episode Paola Brown, president of Americans for Homeopathy Choice, along with Laura Held, the organization's grassroots leader. We had a great chat with them to learn more about their organization, and to clarify the common misconceptions going around about homeopathy being illegal (which it is not!) or if we are at risk of losing homeopathy overnight (again no we aren't!!) 

This episode will help CALM your anxiety, address concerns and most of all teach you ways how to take action and SAVE homeopathy! 

Whether you are in the season of motherhood where you have extra time to give to advocacy, or if you simply only have a few extra seconds here and there and want to help - we talk about ways for any mom to be involved and truly make a difference!  We encourage you to at the very least to visit their website at homeopathychoice.org and check out their offers.  

For the mother who has little time - at the very least join their email and text alerts so you know when to send a letter or comment when we need to show the government that the masses want homeopathy to stay.  If you have more time and want to learn how to meet with your representatives, join the Homeopathy Action Team! In today’s episode, we discuss what that entails.  If you have the desire to donate to the organization we ask you to consider this too. 

Paola and Laura are busy mothers themselves. The leaders of this strong organization are passion- fueled and more members and donations are what keep organizations like this strong and ready to fight - when we need them the most.

We are so excited to bring you this episode … there is a lot you can do as a Doctor Mom! We got this!

Topics Discussed:

  • How does Americans for Homeopathy Choice advocate for homeopathy
  • Is homeopathy being deemed illegal?
  • Will homeopathy be removed from the marketplace? 
  • How can we save homeopathy? 
  • What does it look like to get involved 

Show Notes:

Paola Brown is president and founder of Americans for Homeopathy Choice, the voice of a growing number of mothers and other homeopathy users who want to protect their right to choose homeopathy. Paola is a wife and mother of three who has previously taught many introductory homeopathy classes. She received a B.A. in English education and an M.A. in curriculum and instruction from Arizona State University graduating summa cum laude both times. She taught college English for 13 years and high school English before that. Fluent in Portuguese and Spanish, Paola was also a health instructor with Care for Life, a nonprofit organization working to develop sustainable communities in Mozambique. 

Laura is a wife, mother, home educator, and student at the Academy of Homeopathy Education. As the Grassroots Director for Americans for Homeopathy Choice, Laura oversees the nationwide volunteer advocacy team advancing the organization's efforts to foster the inclusion of the consumer voice in policy decisions on homeopathic medicine. She previously worked for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and was integral to the development of the U.S. Currency Education Program and training domestic and global stakeholders for the launch of the new-design $100 note.

Steph interviews Dr. Julie Greenberg, ND about common skin concerns like adult acne, eczema, and melasma. Dr. Julie Greenberg is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) and Registered Herbalist RH(AHG) who specializes in integrative dermatology. Dr. Greenberg approaches skin and hair problems by finding and treating the root cause instead of ignoring or only medicating the issue. She’s also a huge fan of Active Skin Repair, a podcast sponsor, and uses the product in nearly all of her protocols to support her client's skin concerns.

They discuss how integrative dermatology looks at skin issues, starting at the gut. Dr. Greenberg breaks down the science and provides the full story when it comes to things like “hormonal” acne, face mapping, sunscreen, and expensive “anti-aging” products. Her multi-pronged approach to healing skin concerns and promoting skin health includes the use of herbs, food, hormone and gut testing, and supportive hydrogels like Active Skin Repair. If you’re looking to better understand how to take care of your skin using tips you likely won’t get from a conventional dermatologist,  this is a must-listen!

Dr. Elana interviews birth educator, Care Messer. Care was Dr. Elana’s personal hypnobirthing instructor and she couldn’t help but share her on the podcast as she is full of knowledge, and passion, with a great sense of humor for all things birth related. 

On today’s episode, they discuss how to prepare for a natural birth. You may be surprised with how many tips and details there are that can make a true difference in how you approach labor. Whether you are prepping for labor in the hospital, birth center, or home birth, this episode is for you!

Topics Discussed: 

  • The most important things parents should do when preparing for a natural birth
  • When parents should start preparing
  • Top 3 things parents need to do in preparing for birth
  • Why a birth plan/birth preferences is important to consider before the baby comes
  • Why postpartum prep is essential as part of preparing for birth
  • Most important postpartum tips for a smooth transition into parenthood

Show Notes: 

After six miscarriages, Care fostered a five-year-old little girl, named Angie, whom she was finally able to adopt at eight years old. In 2008, Care discovered Hypnobirthing for the birth of her second daughter and it changed her life’s path. Her second daughter was born with severe special needs but it was her birth preparation that prepared her for such an unexpected postpartum time. Care began teaching Hypnobirthing in 2009 and founded the Birth Education Center in 2011. She is a Hypnotherapist, birth educator and a birth and postpartum doula. She specializes in fear release work, authentic communication and consciously connecting parents with their babies before they are born. It is her belief that babies can experience a “birth day” that is magical, loving, and gentle. When families take the time to resolve fears and advocate with their voice, birth can become a beautiful, positive experience.

Dr. Elana interviews board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Gigler - who happens to be the identical twin sister of Dr. Gillin who is a pediatrician she interviewed a couple of seasons back. Both of these sister doctors LOVE our podcast partner Active Skin Repair so we invited them on our show to share with us Doctor Moms how they use their products with their patients and what type of success they see day to day!

During their interview, Dr. Gigler talks about more than just Active… they focus on how she treats common pediatric skin conditions like Molluscum Contagiousm, Fungal infections like Ringworm and Tinea, Acne, Warts, Keratosis Pilaris, and more! 

As Doctor Moms it is so important we know when it is time to visit the doctor and when we can safely help our kiddo from home! So this interview is a great overview of skin conditions where a doctor visit is helpful and knowing what to expect will help you feel confident and prepared!

You will also learn that there are many skin conditions that ARE safe for us Doctor Moms to help at home and often times Active Skin Repair products can be your go-to non toxic skin formulas for times like these - think cuts, scrapes, sunburns, bites, even eczema or Hand Foot Mouth lesions!!  We absolutely love our friends over at Active and are grateful that they are offering our listeners 20% off all orders using code DOCTORMOM. 

Steph and Dr. Elana don’t leave the house without a spray bottle in our car, one in our purse, and definitely one in our medicine cabinets!

As experts in children’s health and skin health - and moms themselves - we’d be crazy not to take their advice and at least give Active a try!

Dr. Elana interviews Rick Allen, owner of Pure Elements, who is an expert on water filtration. This topic can often feel overwhelming and confusing yet it is so important that we knew an episode dedicated to answering common questions was necessary! 

When Dr. Elana and Steph bought their homes, installing water filters was one of their FIRST priorities! They each had many questions, took hours upon hours to research the best quality, and now want to share this important info with you!

Expert Rick Allen helps guide us mamas so we aren’t misled with false claims from salesmen so you can cut to the chase and know exactly what you are purchasing. The goal is safe and clean water and that is what you deserve! This episode helps you learn the dos and don’ts of purchasing your next water filter. 

We love making these complex topics easy to digest and workable for us everyday moms.

Topics Discussed:

Healthy Water visionary Rick Allen, President/CEO of Pure Elements Water has a stellar reputation for helping clients avoid potentially harmful chemicals in water for consumption, bathing and other human needs.  He has been a renowned leader in the water treatment industry for more than 35 years.

Persistent in working to reduce the reliance on plastic bottles and eliminates salt-based technologies (therefore helping the environment), Rick has become recognized as an expert in seeking levels of water quality that can provide increased longevity for our population and our planet.

Because of an epidemic level of pinhole leaks in copper piping in Southern California, Rick has involved leading engineers and designed systems that address at least two of the culprits, Chloramines and Calcium Carbonate “Pimples”.  He has achieved great success – No home in which a Pure Elements Water Chloramine System has been installed in the last five years has reported a further pinhole leak.

In addition, Rick is accepted as one of the leading national authorities on removing fluoride on a whole house basis, a challenging endeavor.  He is continually proving his success and making enhancements to his systems based on in-home test monitoring sites for real household results.
