Key Points

There is no one-size-fits-all diet. Your genetics and hormones play a great role in what will and won't work for you.
 
A good rule is to not eat foods that contain more than five ingredients, or that contain ingredients you can't pronounce–they're probably chemicals.
 
When you live well, you don't frustrate yourself.
 
No more waiting for "if"s to make something happen! "When I get this job/lost this weight, or ___________, then I'll be happy."  No!
 

What You Can Do

   

Keep a food journal that logs not only what you eat, but also, where you are, what time it is, why you're eating (you could be hungry, bored, with friends, etc.) and how you are feeling. This information will give you a more complete picture of your habits that you can evaluate.
 
Allow your feelings of happiness to catch up, over time, with the positive habits and actions you take day after day. It's a process– not instant.  Any lasting change requires commitment.
 
Identify the underlying problem that is causing you not to be happy.





Each day, find something good about your day.





Don't put yourself down with negative self-talk ("I'm so stupid!).
 
 

Steps to implement the Bon-Vivant lifestyle:

  1. Love and accept yourself.
  2. Keep a food journal.
  3. Clear negative energy and people from your life.
  4. Do everything with love.
  5. Socialize.

Key Points

It's important to get comfortable with using the actual words for your anatomy. Each body part has a name, and there should be no shame associated with any of them. 
 
HPV is a sexually-transmitted virus that is extremely common. Sometimes it goes away on its own, but you don't know without taking a test, because HPV does not always produce symptoms that you can see. Untreated HPV can cause cancers that affects both sexes (oral, throat, penile, anal and cervical cancer).
 
Cervical dysplasia is in a way a reflection of what's going on in your body as a whole.
 
Females should specifically ask to be screened for HPV whenever they have a pap smear, to check for cervical cancer.
 

What You Can Do  

You want your child to have your values first, so that a potential abuser cannot infiltrate their thinking with messages that perpetuate secrecy. Help give children the right words for their genitals, the vocabulary to express themselves, and teach them what it means to have boundaries and proper touching. 
 
Taking care of your body (getting enough sleep, reducing stress, and eating well) will help you defeat or ward off HPV.  Not taking care of yourself, especially heightened stress, sex with a smoker or taking hormonal birth control can cause problems.
 
Test kits to screen oral, throat, penile, anal cancers are not done in the mainstream at doctor offices, but are available through Robin's website below.

When It’s Not Just a Headache with Lisa Jacobson

  • What causes a migraine – 5:15
  • Lisa's story – 7:30
  • How to manage your migraines – 9:28
  • The importance of a support group – 14:23
  • Tracking your migraines – 15:54
  • The making of the Migraine Hat – 19:19

Key Points

 

Migraine is a neurological disease. There is a stigma that migraine is just a headache. But it's much worse… it's very debilitating.

Some of the things that trigger migraines are light, sounds, smells, certain foods, genetics, TMJ and stress. These triggers can cause an electrical storm in the brain, and can cause one to be dizzy, experience paralysis, and makes it impossible to carry on every day activities such as work and caregiving.

National Institute of Health (NIH) has very low funding for research. Only 500 doctors in the U.S. Are credentialed to treat migraine.

There is no cure, but there are ways to manage migraine disease.

Lisa created The Daily Migraine website to give migraine sufferers a voice. It's her passion project; she receives no revenue from it, but hopes to create awareness and help find a cure for migraines. All the proceeds from her invention, the Migraine Hat, go to research.
 

 

What You Can Do

 

  1. Find a really good doctor. Use the Physician Finder (mostly neurologists) on TheDailyMigraine.com.
  2. Plan for an attack. Have medicine, ice ready and practice self-care. You can keep a small freezer with ice in your bedroom, have sunglasses with you at all times, and if you grind your teeth at night (TMJ), wear a mouth guard at night.
  3. Make an "MEK" Migraine Emergency Kit: Some examples of things to put in it are meds, fan, peppermint essential oil, food, ginger candy, water, sunglasses, bandana.
  4. Avoid stress and negativity whenever possible.
  5. Join a support group, like The Daily Migraine Facebook group.
  6. Track the migraine occurrences to show your doctor.
