Harnessing Your Anxiety For Success

Harnessing Your Anxiety For Success

December 7, 2021

How do we overcome anxiety and achieve our goals? 


This is a question I hear all the time, and my guest today, Dr. Chloe Carmichael, shares her tips for harnessing your anxiety, so you can get to your dreams and live your best life. She will walk you through her process of developing a strategy to overcome your anxieties.


I’m sure we all have a story where we’ve overcome something in our past that held us back from succeeding. But you can’t expect to succeed if you don’t take your anxiety in check. I’m going to share a few strategies that have helped me get my anxiety under control.


One of the most helpful things I’ve learned to help me stop thinking about things that don’t matter and stop myself from getting anxious about things that don’t need to be stressed out about is the practice of mindfulness.


If you’re wondering what mindfulness is, it’s the practice of being fully present at the moment. That’s what helps me stay calm, clear and centered because it allows me to be aware of what I’m feeling without getting caught up in it.


You can use mindfulness to help get yourself out of negative emotions, and it’s a great way to combat anxiety. And if you’re having trouble with anxiety, it can be a lot of help.


Dr. Chloe shares her story about how she has learned to harness her own anxiety to help others feel more confident and relaxed.


Her book, Nervous Energy: Harness the Power of Your Anxiety, details her stepwise approach to evolving beyond current limitations. Dr. Chloe is an Advisory Board member for Women’s Health Magazine, a featured expert for Psychology Today and has been featured on VH1, Inside Edition, ABC Nightline, the New York Times, Forbes, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, and more.


She explains how we can all learn to be less judgmental of ourselves and to accept ourselves the way we are.

What is binge-eating? How can we stop binging? Why does this happen to some people? And what can we do about it?

We all want to be happy and have a good relationship with food. But there is a difference between having a healthy relationship with food and having an unhealthy relationship with food.

Our guest for this episode, Dr. Glenn Livingston, a psychologist and former Fortune 500 food industry insider who got out of the food prison of obsession and binging and overcame obesity by identifying the brain triggers and pathways that fuel our compulsive eating and developing a program to reverse this pattern. He has completed research on over 40,000 individuals that clarified this pathway as well as the successful way out. He has been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, ABC, CBS and more.

Why People-Pleasing  Damages Your Health?

Why People-Pleasing Damages Your Health?

October 19, 2021

Do you ever feel guilty about not being ‘people-pleasing’ enough? Millions of people do, all over the world.

People-pleasing is the desire to be liked by others. It can cause people to overcompensate by doing things they think will make them look good, but which actually make them look bad. This is called “doing what you think, rather than what you know.” It’s very common at midlife and in menopause, because it makes us feel good about ourselves and gives us the sense that we are important and valued. However, it can have some negative side effects on our health.

In this episode of The Hormone Prescription Podcast, I interviewed Carmen Hunter about her story of significant experience of betrayal and abandonment to saying no and bringing back that power and honoring what was best for herself. She explains how the habit of people-pleasing can affect our health, and offers some suggestions for how to break this bad habit. Carmen Hunter has over 10 years of health coaching and has been educating and mentoring wellness practitioners for 7 years. She believes that diagnoses are symptoms of a larger health condition and that helping people get well depends on getting back to the basics of health without overwhelming them physically, mentally and emotionally.

Carmen offers practical solutions to these issues and shares her own personal experience in this area. This topic is essential for anyone who struggles with being people-pleasing. You will learn how to take back control of your life and feel better about yourself!

As with all my interviews, I hope that you will enjoy listening to Carmen Hunter’s insights and tips. I am sure that you will find them thought-provoking, informative, and useful.

Carmen Hunter offers a FREE mini-video series about “The Seven Essentials” every human being needs to begin a health journey that feels manageable physically, mentally, financially and emotionally.

Don’t let Methylation Defects Derail your Health at Midlife

Don’t let Methylation Defects Derail your Health at Midlife

October 5, 2021

Have you ever thought about why we age so fast? Have you ever heard about methylation dysfunction and wondered why it happens to you?

Methylation is a process that occurs in every living cell, and it plays a very important role in the development of our body. If methylation functions properly, our body will be able to repair and rejuvenate itself naturally. However, if it malfunctions, aging will happen quickly. Furthermore, methylation defect affects DNA in the body and makes you look older and fatter. It’s a genetic disorder that leads to weight gain, fatigue, and depression. DNA is a living substance, and it also contains the information needed for life. The human body has the ability to keep its own cells alive, but it cannot repair and rejuvenate itself. If DNA is damaged, it cannot be repaired, and our bodies will become old and sick.

Dr. Kendra shares her story that led her to studies and research about healing through genetics and specialties in treatment of challenging conditions such as asthma, autism, allergies, and eczema, as well as fertility. She is most passionate about genetic methylation defects as it almost prevented her from becoming a mother.

Let’s hear about her inspirational journey and learn more about methylation defects.
