What does it truly mean to "be your own best health advocate"? I thought I knew, but it wasn't until my health was at rock bottom that I was forced to realize what it really meant. If you're thinking to yourself that it seems pretty obvious how you should be your own best health advocate, I hope you'll listen with an open mind because it goes deeper than you might initially think.       Looking back at my own health timeline I can see that I was never really my own best health advocate until around 2017. I say I was forced to start doing so because I was jobless, didn't have health insurance, and couldn't even afford food so paying a doctor out of pocket certainly wasn't an option. This happened while I was in the most pain of my life and my health was the worst it had ever been. I was forced to start figuring things out on my own.       Prior to that, I behaved like so many other people who are taught to blindly trust doctors. Before my epiphany, I thought that being my own best health advocate simply meant that if my doctor told me to do something that sounded ridiculous, I wouldn't do it. Or I thought that if I was diagnosed with cancer, I'd get a second opinion if my insurance covered it. That's what it meant to be my own best health advocate, right? Wrong. Oh so wrong.     I'm not saying anyone should place blame on themselves if they haven't been their own best health advocate but the whole reason for this episode is to hopefully help you see things in a new way. I don't want you to have to suffer for years unnecessarily as I did.       I always strongly recommend that everyone works with a functional medicine doctor or integrative doctor for anything relating to autoimmune conditions, migraines, chronic pain, chronic illness, or anything that you've been struggling with for years and feel like you simply can't get true help or answers from a general practitioner or even a specialist of any kind. If they keep prescribing drug after drug and nothing really gets fix you're long overdue to take your power back, see a functional medicine doctor and learn to be your own best health advocate for real.     Also in this episode:     • Examples of ways that are not being your own best health advocate     • Examples of ways that actually are     • Personal downfalls of mine when I was not being my own best health advocate and how I learned to change that     Set up a 1-on-1 coaching session with me: fitfizzstudio.com/coaching     Facebook group with resources to find a functional medicine doctor near you: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FitFizzRawEnergyOasis/
Today's topic is carrageenan. It's a plant-based ingredient that's in many foods and a lot of people can also have a sensitivity to it. For those who are affected, they're often in the dark as to what the culprit of their discomfort is. That's why I'm bringing this to your attention today.     Carrageenan is something that's added to foods and pharmaceuticals to emulsify them, to thicken liquids, or to give them a gel-like consistency. Carrageenan itself comes from red edible seaweed, or sometimes it's called Irish Moss. So it is a natural plant product, therefore it IS in many foods that are labeled as vegan but it's also highly inflammatory for many people.     Also in this episode:     • What kind of symptoms you might experience with a carrageenan sensitivity     • What kind of foods contain carrageenan     • Other names for carrageenan that you'll find on food labels     • How carrageenan creates inflammation     • Be careful of false information about carrageenan     • How to find out which brand/foods contain carrageenan     • What does GRAS mean and why to be cautious when you see this label     Find me on social media @fitfizz and let me know what you thought of this episode and if you learned anything.

Have you ever heard of the hope molecule? It's pretty cool.   You already know that when it comes to movement, something is better than nothing. You've also probably heard of endorphins, and we know that serotonin is our happiness hormone, so it's good to do things that give you an extra hit of serotonin such as getting exercise, meditating, or spending time in nature. But there's more to it.   Why does it feel so great most of the time to sweat, and push limits, and move heavy things, and run long distances, and dance like nobody's watching — or if you're like me to dance like everybody is watching?   There is something nicknamed the Hope Molecule which is responsible for this. So even though it can be fun to think of the body as "magic", there obviously is something scientific happening in the chemical soup known as the human body.   Also in this episode: • How to activate "the hope molecule"   • How the hope molecule activates our feelings of hope and courage   • The role of myokines in the body   Leave me a voice message: https://www.speakpipe.com/fitfizz   https://fitfizzstudio.com/coaching   In case you're new to FitFizz, I’m Kelly Wilson, owner of fitfizzstudio.com and I’m a certified trainer, nutrition coach, behavior change specialist (as in — I'm certified in knowing how to help people change their unhealthy behaviors), autoimmune disease educator and I’ve worked in the health and fitness industry since soon after Suzanne Summers started selling the Thigh Master back in the 90s.
