Today we are excited to share our interview with Wes Pfiffner of Joovv. We discussed how specific types of light can support both partners in the preconception stage and postpartum! Wes is a member of Joovv's leadership team. Joov is one of our incredible podcast partners who brings therapeutic red light therapy into your home for a fraction of the price!  In the episode, Wes breaks down the basics of light - how it works on a cellular level to optimize health. He shares how it can improve things like your skin (I’m looking at you wrinkles and stretch marks), mood (especially on days you can’t get outside), brain health (where are my keys again?), hormones and pain. If you’re skeptical about these devices, give it a listen. We think you’ll find this interview fascinating.

Topics Discussed:

  • How red light therapy can optimize hormones for those TTC
  • How red light therapy can improve common postpartum concerns
  • Benefits of different types of light
  • A walkthrough of how to use the device
  • How Steph uses it with her family
  • The difference between red light therapy and saunas

Show Notes:

Autumn Fladmo Smith began her academic career with a Bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in dance from the University of Montana. Upon graduation, Autumn danced professionally while becoming a certified yoga instructor. Hoping to combine her love of dance with her passion for health, Autumn became a celebrity fitness trainer with Tracy Anderson, most notably completing a world tour with Jennifer Lopez.

While working as a fitness trainer, Autumn could see that exercise alone was not enough for many of her clients to achieve the radiant health they worked so hard to achieve. Meanwhile, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and anxiety continued to plague her personal health, starting in adolescence. These frustrations further ignited her passion and interest in the study of holistic nutrition. Through self-guided research, she and her husband, Chas, healed her IBS with the paleo diet. She then studied with the Institute for the Psychology of Eating to become a Certified Eating Psychology Coach and Hawthorn University where she obtained a Masters in Holistic Nutrition.

In 2013, she founded Paleovalley with her husband and brother-in-law. Paleovalley’s mission is to disseminate excellent nutritional information and organic food products with 100 million people worldwide. Autumn's commitment to health reached new heights last year following the birth of their son, Maverick. Also, Autumn became a Certified FDN Practitioner as of 2018!
