Episode #40: Toxins 101

Your hosts: Jess and Shelby

 

[0:40] Intro and life updates

[5:58] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[7:15] Intro to toxins

[8:07] Results of toxin exposure

[8:50]  We spend approximately 87% of our time indoors, with an additional 5-6% in our cars, which leads to just 7-8% of our time being spent outdoors. We need to think about the chemicals we might be exposed to in our homes

[9:45] Wordwide the number of chemicals in commerce is between 100,000-150,000. However, not all these chemicals are bad

[11:17] TSCA, passed in the US in 1976, takes a “safe until proven unsafe” approach for chemicals

[12:15] There are 86,000 chemicals registered for use in the US. 62,000 of those chemicals were grandfathered in, meaning they were deemed safe at the passing of TSCA. Out of those 62,000, only 200 of them were tested. Out of those 200, only 5 were restricted or banned.

[13:15] Banned or restricted chemicals are still found to be contaminants in products

[14:00] Studies and testing of chemicals are often done on rodents for a span of 90 days

[14:35] CDC reports over 200 manmade chemicals found in sawdust

[14:45] Exposure to toxic substances can start in the womb

[16:18] It can take decades to phase out toxic chemicals

[17:07] The government has no power to remove harmful products from the marketplace

[18:11] Environmental Working Group’s Healthy Living App allows you to search harmful ingredients to see what’s in your beauty products

[19:00] Looking forward to a day where less-tox products are less expensive and more readily available

[19:30] AD: Coleman Farms

[20:35] Making lower tox swaps doesn’t have to be overwhelming or super expensive

[22:50] Ways to advocate for better regulations surrounding personal care products

[25:32] Baby steps are still steps towards living healthier

[25:55] Jess shares future episode ideas surrounding less-tox options

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode #41: Emotional Health for Littles

Your hosts: Jess and Shelby

 

[0:40] Intro and tox talk

[5:45] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[6:45] Intro to emotional health in children

[7:32] The harm in the outdated belief that children should be seen and not heard

[8:10]  As a parent, it is your job to teach and discipline your children, but remembering that your child is an independent being can make your life easier as a parent

[9:03] When we expect that our children will be upset or get angry during a day, it can make us more prepared to handle it

[9:52] Kids need help learning how to manage their emotions

[10:43] We learn how to handle emotions by allowing ourselves to feel those emotions

[11:17] Shelby: I do better as an adult if I know why someone is asking something of me; I think kids are the same way

[12:20] The importance of phrasing in discipline to avoid guilt and shame

[14:25] It’s okay to put limits on behavior while still allowing a healthy output of emotion [IE: you can be angry or upset, but you cannot throw things because that can hurt someone]

[15:15] Shelby shares how she corrects her toddler VS her older children

[16:22] AD: Coleman Farms

[17:48] What works with one child might not work for another

[18:11]  The importance of apologizing to our kids when we lose our temper

[19:05] If a parent’s emotional, physical, or mental health is poor, it has a very strong impact on children

[20:15] Kids learn from example

[20:45] Breaking the parent-guilt cycle

[21:46] Summary

Episode 43: Plastics

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode #43: Plastics

Your hosts: Jess and Shelby

 

[0:40] Intro and life updates

[5:00] Some toxins and chemicals can cause weight gain

[5:30] Not all plastics are necessarily bad

[6:05] There’s more to plastic than whether or not it’s BPA free

[6:22] Whenever possible, switch out harmful plastic containers and kitchen gadgets

[7:10] Look for the recycling numbers (resin codes) on plastic containers (1-7, the tougher the plastic, the higher on the number scale it’s classified)

[7:41]  Exposing Green Washing: There’s no BPA in one-time-use plastic food storage storage bags or bottled water

[7:47] BPA is a #7 plastic, so it’s tough

[8:08] Food storage bags, bottled water, and many other food containers typically are made with #1 plastic (flimsy, BPA free, but still can be harmful)

[8:42] Easy way to remember which plastics are better: Plastic numbers 5, 4, 2; all the rest are bad for you

[9:10] Phthalates can leech out of plastics, even the plastics that are BPA free. Phthalates interrupt the endocrine system

[10:00] The increase of exposure to harmful plastics in modern times can explain the rise of hormone disruption we’re seeing

[10:05] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[11:13] Dangers of plastic in food storage

[11:44] When it comes to plastic, also avoid: heat, oil, acidity, and abrasion

[12:13] For foods high in acidity, opt for glass containers

[12:48] Don’t heat food up in plastic containers

[13:13] Avoid oils/fats stored in plastic (including nut butters!)

[14:21] BPA is a #7 plastic, and it’s often in blenders and sturdy food containers, it can be harder to find glass alternatives for these items

[15:25] The main concern for kitchen appliances (like blender pitchers) is how you wash them: opt for washing by hand with warm water and don’t aggressively scrub (IE: avoiding heat and abrasion)

[16:45] Marketing ploy: many BPA free products still contain BPS and BPF, which are shown to be just as harmful (if not more so) than BPA

[17:40] Shelby talks about steps she’s taking in making lower-tox swaps in her household

[19:04] Stasher bags are silicone and a safer food storage option

[19:16] AD: Coleman Farms

[20:40] Remember that bottled water is often left in hot environments that can increase chemical leeching from the bottle into the water

[24:00] Why spaghetti stains food storage containers and why you should avoid it

[25:00] Being a more mindful consumer

[26:20] Buying better reusable containers is more budget friendly in the long run than buying a ton of single-use containers or bags

[27:26] There is a happy medium of making healthier choices while not driving yourself crazy

[13:15] Chakras are a helpful tool in our health journey; make it a part of your arsenal

[15:18] Signs of the first chakra’s imbalance

[15:58] Imbalance of this chakra is sometimes the result of trauma and neglect

[17:36] Community and seeking healthy relationships can bring stability to this chakra imbalance

[20:00] The second chakra: the Sacral Chakra; Reproduction/sexuality/creative energy/expression

[21:07] Shelby: Our culture has reduced sexuality down to just the physical act, it can be much more meaningful than that

[22:22] This chakra’s color is orange

[22:43] Signs of the second chakra’s imbalance

[23:27] When this chakra is in balance, you give yourself permission to be creative

[24:15] Don’t dismiss your creativity; find ways you like to express yourself

[25:04] The third chakra: our solar plexus/self-trust/expression of will

[26:18] We are spiritual beings

[44:25] Signs of imbalance in the sixth chakra

[45:25] Jess: When you finally get clarity, it’s life changing

[45:43] Meditation is underestimated in finding clarity

[45:56] Jess: When you start meditating, you’ll start getting answers to things you didn’t know you needed

[47:35] The seventh chakra is the Crown Chakra; it’s the connection to the universe and higher-self and the source of our beliefs. The color of this chakra is violet

[48:22] Signs of imbalance in the seventh chakra

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode #52: Self-Growth in Relationships

Your host: Jess and Shelby

 

 

[0:45] Introduction and life updates

[5:40] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[6:50] Many challenges we face in relationships come from our childhood

[7:05] We have patterns we were raised with that can carry over into how we interact with our partners

[7:15] The brain might seek out unhealthy relationships in an attempt to deal with past traumas

[8:25] If you have deep insecurity or are a people-pleaser, it can be very hard to have a healthy relationship

[8:50] A healthy relationship is made up of two autonomous individuals with their own goals and ambitions that come together to form a healthy bond

[9:08] You are not completed by another person; that is co-dependence

[9:30] We have to work on our own issues so we can show up in a relationship with our own strength and wholeness

[9:45] As we work through our personal problems, we should share that with our partner

[10:12] Shelby describes finding herself within the context of marriage

[10:48] It is not our partner’s job to “fix” us

[11:15] It is our partner’s job to support us

[11:40] Getting to our core issues takes time

[13:05] Realizing that we don’t have to have trauma in our childhood to experience issues in adulthood

[14:40] Realizing our parents weren’t perfect

[16:40] Growing individually in relationships

[17:18] Advice on having a partner that seems resistant to change

[19:00] You have control over half of your relationship; what change can YOU bring?

[19:30] AD: Take Root Cafe

[20:55] Being comfortable with setting boundaries

[21:35] Realizing limits within specific relationships and lowering expectations

[22:50] Don’t get into relationships out of loneliness

[23:13] If you aren’t comfortable with yourself, you’re not going to be able to be comfortable in a relationship

[24:45] There is nothing wrong with being single

[25:00] Don’t let cultural pressures force you into seeking out a relationship

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode #55: Therapy & Doing the Work

Your hosts: Jess and Shelby

 

[0:40] Introduction and life updates

[3:50] You’re not alone

[4:18] Jess shares her journey into therapy

[4:38] Jess: I was slow to divulge in therapy

[5:15] Jess: I started having hard personal conversations and discussing them in therapy

[5:30] Jess: In one session, I finally bawled my eyes out

[6:20] Jess shares her journey into a 12 step program

[7:34] Finding help through community and programs

[8:06] Jess: You’re as sick as your secrets; you must fix yourself, not everyone else

[9:10] AD: Take Root Cafe

[10:24] Therapy is work, not just talking

[12:50] If you’re stuck, there is an underlying reason for that

[14:06] Identifying your patterns

[15:04] Re-parenting and breaking cycles

[16:08] A good therapist will truly listen

[16:15] Shelby discusses misconceptions about what trauma looks like

[17:31] The benefits of sharing emotions without judgement

[18:08] A good therapeutic relationship allows all cards to be on the table

[18:42] Trauma looks different for everyone

[19:34] It can be harder for people who have “had a great life” to seek out therapy because their trauma seems less significant or they might not be aware baggage is there

[20:00] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[21:07] Just because you don’t have a mental health diagnosis doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from therapy

[21:45] How am I coping and is it how I want to live my life?

[22:06] Ideally, mental baggage would decrease with each new generation

[23:00] Verbalizing what we’re going through can bring things to the surface that otherwise might have stayed under the radar

[24:54] Therapy touches so many areas of our every day life

[25:16] We don’t have to try to have it together all the time

[25:43] There’s so much more than what we see or portray on social media

[26:23] Therapy IS worth it!
