SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Your thyroid health is SO important for boosting and optimising your metabolism! ✔️

If you have trouble shifting weight, even when you’re eating well and exercising regularly, it could be that your thyroid is underactive 🥺

A lot of the women I work with have no idea that this is what’s contributing to the issue as their bloods have come back ‘normal’ 🙄

Not to mention 3 of the key nutrients (iodine, selenium and zinc) you need to have a healthy balanced thyroid are deficient in our soils 🪴 and if it’s not in the soil, it’s NOT in the food!

TOP 3 FOODS FOR THYROID HEALTH

It’s no wonder we are seeing an increase in slow metabolisms and underactive thyroids across the globe!

Which is why I suggest adding these 3 foods into your diet on a daily basis if possible to support your thyroid and overall metabolism!

  1.  Brazil Nuts - just two of these a day helps you meet your recommended daily intake of your selenium, super easy to add to your morning or afternoon snack.
  2.  Kelp Salt - 1 tsp per day of this spread across your meals gives you your recommended daily intake of iodine which is not only important for your thyroid health but also for your breast health too.
  3.  Eggs (zinc + iron) - having eggs for breakfast or as a snack throughout the day can help you increase the amount of zinc and iron you get into your diet, you need both of these nutrients for your thyroid to be functioning normally and I see so many women low in iron in particular that have trouble with their thyroid health, so eat your eggs!

FINAL THOUGHTS

Your thyroid needs selenium, iodine, iron and zinc to do its job properly, keep the thyroid hormones doing their thing, and so I am always a fan of prioritising getting our nutrients through foods as much as possible!

Why You Need To Be Pooping Daily For Weight Loss

WHY YOU NEED TO BE POOPING DAILY FOR WEIGHT LOSS

22 / JUNE / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

LISTEN UP… 📣 If you are not pooping 💩 daily, it’s time to sound the alarm bells 🚨🚨🚨

Particularly if you want to shift weight, support your hormones or just be healthy in general. 😅

WHY DAILY BOWEL MOVEMENTS ARE SO IMPORTANT

One of the biggest issues I hear about from clients is irregular bowel movements, specifically constipation. 

Now, I know this isn’t fun to talk about or admit, but if you let this fester over time it can cause havoc in your body. 😱🥺

Think about it this way, your bowel movements 💩 are one of the ways your body eliminates toxins ❌- TOXINS (aka a substance that is harmful to your body)

If you aren’t eliminating these toxins through your bowel movements 💩 at least once a day you are essentially just letting them sit there ready to be reabsorbed. 😵

I like to think about it as a bus 🚌 (stool) travelling down a road (your intestine) with a bunch of passengers 👩🏼‍🤝‍👨🏾 inside (the toxins)... If the bus is moving at a steady pace those passengers are going to get to their destination on time 🙌🏽🥳, however if the bus is stopped the passengers are able to get off the bus and go for a wander 😱👩🏼‍🤝‍👨🏾

Passengers don’t jump out of a moving bus, and we don’t want your toxins going on a walkabout back into your bloodstream only to be stored in your body again. 🙅🏼‍♀️🙅🏼‍♀️
Because when this happens, they wind up in a fat cell and become hard to move (therefore the body fat becomes hard to move)🤦🏼‍♀️

TIPS ON SUPPORTING MOTILITY

Is all of this making sense so far? 🙌🏽🥰

Your motility (bowels moving daily) is KEY 🔑 to your toxin excretion 👌🏽

So how do you support your motility?

-  Make sure you are drinking plenty of water (at least 2L per day) 💦

-  Eat a variety leafy green vegetables 🥬 - these should be in at least 2 of your main meals

-  Add some nourishing carbohydrates like sweet potato, potato🥔pumpkin or rice to your main meals to help bind the stool together so they are much easier to pass ✨

Top 3 Productivity Hacks For Busy Women

TOP 3 PRODUCTIVITY HACKS FOR BUSY WOMEN!

8 / JUNE / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Don’t you just wish there were more hours in the day? 😔 This is something I hear time and time again from the beautiful women I work with!

I know when I first started my business, I used to have a to-do list a mile long that I could never seem to get on top of 😓

Tie that into having a business, my own wellness, a social life and rest and well…

That’s when burnout 🔥 happened!

So, I thought to help save you from the same fate, I would share some of my favourite productivity hacks to help you get more done, in less time! 😍

TOP 3 PRODUCTIVITY HACKS

1️⃣ Journal + Plan Out Your Day (first thing in the morning or the night before)

⏰ TIME BLOCKING: break your tasks into groups and allocate a block of time to get the tasks done, this may look like inboxes, client time, exercise, course work etc

❓ REFLECTIVE QUESTIONS: starting your day in reflection to see what’s been working and what needs to be changed means you’re less likely to repeat the same mistakes and therefore save time

🤟🏽 POWER OF 3: choose THREE things that you are focused on that day, anymore is just a bonus, the more you try and take on the more overwhelmed and disappointed you get when you don’t get it all done ☺️

2️⃣ Use the first hour of your morning as your POWER HOUR 👊🏽

Your brain 🧠 is in theta state for the first hour you wake up, meaning brain function is optimised, so include some sort of…

MINDFULNESS 🧘🏼‍♀️ , MOVEMENT 🏃🏼‍♀️and MEAL 🍳 to help start your day on a positive note, with great circulation and blood flow, as well as balanced hormones and energy to keep you as focused as possible!

3️⃣ Prioritise Your Health!

This is a big one! Your health is your wealth… and without it you can say goodbye to your productivity, energy and ability to thrive in your workplace.

So keep it simple but effective! 👌🏽

☑️ Sleep for 7 - 9 hours a night to wake up fresh the next day

☑️ Drink 2 - 3L of water to keep you hydrated (our bodies are 70% water)

☑️ Listen to your body and learn to sync your work to your hormonal cycle (it’s a thing - I promise).

Let me know in the comments below what you are going to implement first!

Transition Off Hormonal Contraceptives Naturally

HOW TO TRANSITION OFF HORMONAL CONTRACEPTIVES NATURALLY

1 / JUNE / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

After so many questions on this I was super inspired to share all about how to transition off hormonal contraceptives, particularly the pill in a really natural, holistic way. 

A lot of the time we can be really afraid of the side effects that can occur if we were to come off the pill or if we were to come off hormonal contraceptives. There can be a lot of fear around this and a lot of uncertainty about the symptoms that can happen. 

Am I gonna get breakouts? 
Am I going to get absent period for months? 
Am I going to end up putting on weight? 
Am I not gonna be able to put on weight? 
Am I gonna have irregular periods for the rest of my life? 
Am I gonna be in a lot of pain? 

There can be so many questions in relation to this, and asking yourself how is my body going to function effectively when I come off hormonal contraceptives? 

As I go through this, know that this relates to just about any hormonal contraceptive that you may be on. I'm going to keep this super short and super sweet because at the end of the day, there's a really easy way to do this without all of the fluff, without all of the BS, without all of the nasties that can come with it. 

WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE HORMONAL CONTRACEPTIVE

So I want to give some context to it by giving you a little bit of an understanding of what actually goes on in the body when you are on a hormonal contraceptive, like the pill. 

When you're taking these, the connection between your brain and your ovaries are completely shut down. So we have, what's called our HPA access and we also have our HPG access. Now our HPA access is linked to our adrenals, which are two little glands that sit right above our kidneys. They're responsible for our fight or flight hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline. In the ovaries however, part of the HPG axis, they produce our main hormones for females, which are estrogen and progesterone.

Now, if we are getting synthetic hormones from elsewhere, our brain says, “What's the point of making our own hormones?” So it shuts down the connection between the brain and the ovaries. Now, you are not naturally producing these hormones in an efficient way. Your body's actually not naturally thriving. This tends to cause a lot of the problems that we see, like PMS, anxiety, breakouts… even though you may have gone on these hormonal contraceptives for the purpose of all of these symptoms, right? 

The way I look at these hormonal contraceptives is like a bandaid.  We look at these external symptoms that we are getting from our hormonal health, ask how we can fix this? Oh, here's a quick pill. Instead of going to what's at the root of the issue here… why am I experiencing period pain? For example, is it underlying inflammation levels? Is it because I am not eating whole, real foods enough? Is it because I'm not sleeping enough? Is it because my levels of stress are far too high? What is the real reason behind the inflammation? 

And maybe it's not period pain, maybe you've got acne and you're wondering why your body is continually breaking out. And again, we wanna investigate, is this a liver issue, is this because our gut is not able to clear toxins effectively.

Our skin is an organ. Our body is going to push things out if it can't evacuate those toxins effectively. This applies obviously whether you are on the pill or off of the pill, but essentially when it comes to making this transition, we need to make sure that your body is supported in all different ways. But first things first, identify the symptoms that you're worried about. And then we need to investigate them. 

In fact, it's like studies have been shown that around 13% of women are only on hormonal contraceptives for contraceptive reasons. That just continually blows my mind. 

It goes to show how many symptoms we're trying to cover up what we're trying to mask as a result of hormonal imbalance. The real issue here is how do we balance our hormones effectively versus how do we just put that bandaid on it? 

If you're reading this and you're someone that is on hormonal contraceptives, please know that I am not a doctor and I’m not here to tell you to come off it, it is completely your choice. I stand by your body, your choice, very strongly. But these are some suggestions and things that hopefully will open your eyes so you can make an empowered decision. 

I was on the pill for almost 10 years. I started when I was very young, around 14 because I had hormonal acne and nothing seemed to work. I went on antibiotics for three months to suppress it and then the skin started to break out even more. So I went on the pill and I went on a very high estrogenic pill. This then caused a whole host of problems on its own. Over the years, I switched to a lower estrogenic pill once I started to understand hormonal health a little bit more. But I still got really bad acne. I still got terrible PMS. I lost my libido. I ended up with quite high anxiety levels. I just wasn't myself anymore and I really didn't like who I was turning into or who I was becoming. So finding a natural solution is a huge passion of mine… because I asked doctors, gynecologists, specialists time after time, I even had a cyst on my ovary that was completely ignored. I was told to go back on the pill to try and fix it. So it's really important to understand that you as a woman have a beautiful intelligence inside your body, our human body is such a miracle. 

LISTENING TO YOUR BODY

If we can start to listen to the beautiful signs and symptoms that our bodies give us, then we are going to be in a much more empowered state to make decisions and make choices. So to give you a bit of more context around what hormonal contraceptives can do to your body, like I said, firstly, see, there's the connection between the brain and the ovaries, other hormonal contraceptives, for example, like the Depo Provera can actually shut down your thyroid as well so you can end up causing a whole host of issues with taking these hormonal contraceptives. It can take a while for our bodies to bounce back. However, internally what synthetic hormones do, just like any medication does, is load up our liver, right? And why this happens is because our bodies need to put everything that we get into our bloodstream, through our liver. 

Our blood is filtered by our liver 20 to 25 times per day. That's just how miraculous your liver is. It's not just there to process alcohol. It is making sure that your blood is filtered and it's making sure it's helping with the detoxification processes. So if you've got a synthetic hormone coming into the body or a medication coming into the body, then the liver has to break it down so that the body can use it. Any sort of excess hormones. It's also the job of the liver to clear them out as well, and so when we are taking some synthetic hormones, our body is constantly overloaded or the liver's overloaded, and we need to make sure that we are supporting your liver health. So one of the key things to do when we are transitioning off hormonal contraceptives is to make sure that our liver is looked after. 

This is normally a little bit further down the track in terms of what we would focus on primarily first. But one of the things I want you to understand is the load that these hormonal contraceptives can have on the liver. And then if the liver's overloaded, that's when those breakouts, eczema, rashes, etc can start to happen. 

The other thing we wanna understand is the impact that it can have on our gut health. For example the pill can actually alter your microbiome and a lot of research has been shown to suggest that when you're on the pill or hormonal contraceptives, a lot of women develop something called leaky gut. Now, if you're not familiar with this term, it essentially means that the walls of your intestine start to separate. 

Leaky gut is what allows things that aren't supposed to be in our bloodstream to leak through the gut. This can look like food, bugs, parasites or overgrowths of bacterial or fungal types. They can actually end up getting into your bloodstream (systemically) and start to cause a whole host of reactions elsewhere. 

For me I had a leaky gut while I was on the pill. I wasn't aware of it at the time and I ended up allowing what's called candida, which is a fungal overgrowth to go systemically through my body. This wasn't picked up early enough, and ended up causing severe eczema in my head as well as a lovely athlete’s foot too. Alongside this came a lot of weight gain for me, which I struggled to shift and further hormonal imbalances like estrogen dominance. And I couldn't understand why? 

The other thing that the pill did was because you're constantly suppressing that ovary connection between your brain and your ovaries. It led me to a state of burnout as well, but that's a whole nother story. 

So to come back to gut health, if you are constantly consuming medication every single day or synthetic hormones every single day and then ruining or destroying or contributing to the destruction, I should say of your gut integrity. Then you're going to be in a state where the gut needs a lot of support. So the first thing that we need to do when we're transitioning off hormonal contraceptives is to look after your gut health. 

Now that can sound so different for everyone and we need to understand what that looks like for everybody and what state your gut is in. But if you're someone that's constantly bloated, if you're someone that experiences a lot of IBS, or maybe you experience bowel movements from one symptom to another, or you're constantly constipated, or you get a lot of loose bowel movements on a regular basis, and you're on hormonal contraceptives, it may be time to look at if these are contributing to your overall health and your gut health in particular. As you may or may not know, our gut is the center of our immune system and it is where all diseases begin, essentially, according to Hippocrates around 2,500 years ago

HEALING THE GUT

So how do we look after our gut health? What does that look like? Well, inside Reclaim Your Radiance, which is my signature 12 week program that supports you in the transition off hormonal contraceptives we make sure that you go in with a gut protocol in which we take out any of the foods that could be causing inflammation that could be contributing to that leaky gut. So one of the key things for example, is gluten. 

Gluten is known in every single human being to cause leaky gut to some variation. For some people, it won't be much for other people, it'll be significant. For me, as a coeliac it destroys my ability to absorb nutrients, which is quite shocking, really. 

So what we need to make sure that we are doing is taking things like gluten out and other inflammatory foods. And you may know your body doesn't respond very well to a few foods, so it's giving your body enough of a break to allow the gut to seal back up and really allow that healing process to occur so that you're not getting that leaky picture going on. 

We typically do this for about four weeks prior to making the transition off the pill or even two weeks, depending on where you're at in your journey and how severe your gut symptoms are. This allows our body to kind of play a little bit of catch up. You're obviously still putting synthetic forms of hormones into your body, but in doing the slower process and doing some of the deeper work before you come in, it's not so much of a shock to the body when you do actually make the transition. 

So you may do two to four weeks prior, then we're gonna look at supporting the gut whilst you're transitioning off as well. So things like sugar, making sure maybe your dairy intake is a little bit lower. We're looking at other things that can cause a lot of inflammation, not just in the gut, but also in the body, but really taking care of our gut health. 

For some, it might look like introducing a high quality probiotic. It's very different for everyone and we need to make sure that you're really supported in that respect, but ultimately you're really diving deep into giving the gut the love and the nourishment. 

We may need to put some other supplements in that can support the healing of that gut lining. Collagen is fantastic in terms of helping things, kind of sew themselves back together.

So once we've done the initial pre ‘coming off the pill,’ we need to go into post ‘coming off the pill’. You're looking at a gut protocol for roughly four to six weeks, depending on how severe symptoms are. Then we wanna make sure that your body is really supported after that. 

Like I mentioned earlier, your liver has been overloaded for however long you've been taking the synthetic hormones. Now, chances are your liver's been overloaded from a whole lot of other things as well, right? It's not just medication and alcohol that the liver takes care of. It's any toxin inside the body and it's filtering all of our blood constantly. So we need to make sure that we are supporting your liver health. This may look like continuing some of the things that you've been doing in terms of supporting your gut. 

It also may look like putting in a little bit more protein. It may look like adding in some herbs and some supplements that are specific for liver support to make sure that the pathways that your liver needs to transport the toxins out of your body are really supported. So I won't specifically name these herbs because I don't want you to go out and just grab them off the shelves. Herbs can do a lot of beautiful things in the body, but it is very important that we are listening to someone who has had a look and understands our bodies specifically which is something I support women with inside Reclaim Your Radiance. So we're firstly looking after the gut, before you come off the pill, then we are looking after the gut, after you come off the pill, and then we are supporting the liver and making sure your body's ability to clear toxins is effective. 

Once we're at that point, your body should start to feel a lot better. We then move into focusing on whole real foods and living in a way that feels an alignment for you and your body ongoing and moving forward. 

I've had multiple clients come off hormonal contraceptives. In fact, just talking to one of the beautiful women last night as we were wrapping up the last round of Reclaim Your Radiance and she was still sharing a little bit of fear around, am I gonna get acne? Is my skin gonna break out? Even though it hasn't. My skin's been the best it's been in six to seven years. What happens 3, 6, 12 months down the track, because there's a lot of post pill acne that tends to happen. 

I had her reflect and go, actually, how many of those studies of the post pill acne have the women actually done these deeper healing work? How many women have actually gone and done the deeper gut healing, the deeper liver healing, allowing the body to support the detoxification process effectively to the point where they're not going to get any of those nasty side effects and symptoms. 

So it's really important to understand that even though there may be other people out there that have had terrible stories, there are also other people who do the deeper inner work that allow the body to be supported through it. 

You don't end up with those horror stories that can happen. 

Instead, it's really, really beautiful to support your body during this transition. If you're someone that's wondering, how on earth do I do that? Then Reclaim Your Radiance is the perfect program for you. So you can click here for more info. If you wanna book a call or to have a look and see if you just wanna jump in and sign up. 

The other thing I will share with you in terms of the pill is a lot of people are worried about giving their period back. I had a client who did all of this. She actually did Reclaim Your Radiance while she was on the pill and then made the decision at the end of the program through all of the learning and the knowledge she'd acquired to transition off the pill within a month, her period was back. She started ovulating, right after which is a huge thing that a lot of women struggle with coming off the pill and was able to fall pregnant within a month of coming off the pill, which just goes to show when you do the deeper inner work, when you really heal the body, the body responds. 

One thing I'll leave you with is that our body's goal every single month is to fall pregnant. 

Whether you want that for yourself or not. That's how, as females, we are genetically built. 

So if you are constantly suppressing your natural hormone production, if you are constantly stressed and shutting things down and keeping your body in survival, you're not gonna be producing the lovely hormones that not only help you fall pregnant, but help you with your body, feeling safe with your body, being able to shift weight with your moods, being able to be regular, with your skin being able to be beautiful, glowing and radiant. 

Really making sure that you take the time to take care of yourself, keep your body in this position, safe and in this beautiful space so you can glow from the inside out is really key. I hope that this was helpful and you got a lot from this.

How To Cure IBS For Good

HOW TO CURE IBS FOR GOOD

11 / MAY / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

First things first, you need to understand that IBS is a pretty crappy diagnosis, I mean, it literally stands for irritable bowel syndrome. And I dunno about you, but I want to know WHY on earth my bowel is irritated! 

Understanding what is actually happening underneath the surface level diagnosis that is ‘IBS’, or what I like to call, the IBS Iceberg can be hard and is often why the ‘solution’ is to just follow a low FODMAP diet (and that’s it).

As a holistic + clinical nutritionist this is not a long-term ‘solution’ that I am happy to put my clients on. In fact, it isn’t really a solution at all. 

Yes low FODMAPs can be super helpful, but it is even in the research that this isn’t a long-term fix. It might reduce the symptoms, but again we want to get to the root of the cause and in my expert opinion and first hand experience, I can tell you that it is normally one of these three things that lie below the surface of the IBS Iceberg: 

3 ROOT CAUSES OF IBS

1. Leaky Gut 

Leaky gut is another way of saying your intestine (gut) is permeable (has ‘gaps’) in it. This allows for particles of food and other toxins to seep through into your bloodstream (where it isn’t meant to be). 

So the body freaks out, thinks there is an invader present and puts the entire system in a state of inflammation… hello food intolerances and irregular bowel movements. 

These symptoms sound familiar?

2. SIBO

Short for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, now you may be wondering what on earth that means, especially because we are meant to have bacteria in our gut right? 

YES!

But not in our small intestine… You see, that is where all the absorption and digestion goes on, so the majority of our bacteria should be living in our large intestine. When it grows up searching for food and starts to overpopulate in the small intestine we start to see issues like chronic bloating, diarrhoea, smelly gas, burping and fatigue to name a few! 

Not fun right, and can be kind of embarrassing at times

3. Dysbiosis 

Now dysbiosis simply put, means there is an imbalance of good bacteria to bad bacteria in the gut. We are always going to have some bad guys, but the ratio needs to be heavily in favour of the good ones! 

Often clients come to me concerned that there is something living in their gut that shouldn’t be, and whilst this is true for some cases, the bigger issue is actually the lack of good gut bacteria. 

If we don’t have enough good guys, we reduce our defence in fighting off the bad guys! And then we have a bunch of space for the bad guys to invade. 

I think you’d agree, we really don’t want a hostile situation in our guts! So this balance needs to be restored! 

HEAL TO HEAL IBS FOR GOOD

These are the three main issues I see underneath the IBS ice-berg! 

Which is why the diagnosis IBS is not really supporting you in having a healthy gut right! We really have to support the good bacteria that are living inside of us!

The great news is, that it doesn’t have to take extensive testing and supplementation to reset your gut health and start to really nourish those beautiful bugs that help us thrive! 

The key thing to understand when it comes to healing your gut (or curing IBS for good), is that it isn’t a short-term solution. You are going to need to make changes to your diet and lifestyle, and some of those shifts may need to become more permanent to keep you healthy, others will only need to be around temporarily whilst the healing occurs. 

What you need to give yourself is time, on average it takes at least 12 weeks for the gut to do the deeper healing work, but you don’t have to wait that long to see results!

One of my clients saw a reduction in bloating after 4 days, another got her energy back and anxiety reduced in just 4 weeks! 

These are women just like you who didn’t accept a BS diagnosis, and wanted real change and answers about their body and health! And I truly feel confident that when you apply what you learn inside the 4 Week Gut Reset, you can have the same results! 

Sound good? Click here to save your spot! I cannot wait to support you! 

Yours in Health + Happiness,
Sheree xo

What It Truly Takes To Heal Your Body

WHAT IT TRULY TAKES TO HEAL YOUR BODY ❤️ (WHAT MOST HEALTH COACHES AREN’T TELLING YOU!) 🤯

13 / APRIL / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

If you’re confused on how to get started on your gut or hormone healing journey this one’s for you! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

I have so many clients come to me, that have been lost 😔, misguided and confused about why nothing they have tried works for the long-term… so I’m here to drop some TRUTH bombs for you! 🤩

Because YOU deserve to know how to get the most out of your efforts! 🎉

5 TIPS TO TRULY HEAL YOUR BODY

1️⃣ Trust the Process

That includes yourself, your body is a reflection of the mind 🧠, and if you continue to fill it with self-doubt, it’s a constant negative stress which interrupts the healing process! 

Know that unlike what may be conveyed on social media nowadays, it doesn’t just happen overnight, but it also doesn’t have to take forever or be super hard! It really just takes you showing up every day with the belief that you can do it and if needed the guidance and support of a coach to help you see your blindspots!

2️⃣ Prioritise Consistency > Fancy Supplements

Sure there are incredible supplements 💊that SUPPORT your healing, but if you’re still getting minimal sleep 😴 , putting sh*t food into your body, and not prioritising exercise and rest CONSISTENTLY… NOTHING is going to change! 

You’ve probably heard the ‘80:20’ principle a lot, and to be honest, I am not the biggest fan of it, but I will share this… if you are being 80% consistent on putting the right habits in place and healthy foods into your body, and exercising 3 - 5 times a week in a way that challenges you, you’re going to be 80% better than when you started which is pretty damn good!

3️⃣ Your Comfort Zone is Killing You 

Everything you desire is on the other side of your fear! 🙌🏽 Nothing changes if nothing changes, doing the same thing and expecting different results is literally the definition of insanity! 🤯 Get OUT of your comfort zone and invest in your health 🤩

But what does this really look like? Maybe it is trying a new meal, asking for more support, putting extra weight on the barbell at the gym, taking more time out for you. If it is a little bit scary but also a little bit exciting you are in exactly the right place for change! 

4️⃣ You’re Not Addressing the Root Cause

Have fun repeating the same diet a million times over 🤦🏼‍♀️ or trying all the new products on the market, these will NOT 🙅🏼‍♀️ solve your issue. If you truly want to HEAL the body, you have to UNDERSTAND what is driving it on the inside! 

A lot of the time we think if we simply eat right and exercise the results will happen (and yes… they sure do help!), but if there is a hormonal imbalance, a gut issue, you adrenals are stressed or your body is chronically inflamed, it is going to hold back your results and progress! This is why getting to the root cause is so important! 

If you aren’t sure where to start with this, take my free quiz here!

5️⃣ Exercise isn’t the be all and end all 

Endless hours of cardio 🏃🏼‍♀️, training and HIIT are doing more damage than good. Finding an exercise regime that is BALANCED ⚖️ and right for your body is key for your healing and health!

If there is one thing I tell all my female clients, no matter what age you are… get into strength training, it boosts your metabolism, is great for your physical and mental health and you will start seeing results in your body as it is pushing you outside your comfort zone and forcing your body to change shape! 

Try swapping out the cardio for some weights a couple times a week, balance it with something new and most of all have FUN! If you aren’t enjoying it you won’t stick to it. Don’t exercise out of punishment, exercise to push you to your limits, get stronger and because you are worth it!

FINAL THOUGHTS

I hope this has opened your eyes to some new things to try on, share with me below, what’s the area you are going to start working on now?

Yours in Health,

5 Things To Prioritise For Optimal Health

SHEREE'S PYRAMID OF PRIORITIES - 5 PRIORITIES TO OPTIMISE YOUR HEALTH

16 / MARCH / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

I get asked all the time… How do I lose weight? How do I balance my hormones? How do I heal my gut? Honestly, it all starts HERE, with the 5 priorities I am about to share with you! This is your foundation to health… 

TOP 5 PRIORITIES

1. STRESS + SLEEP: 

Do not underestimate the impact stress has on your body, this can be food stress, emotional stress, physical stress, mental stress you name it. It triggers inflammation, can negatively impact your gut health and throw your hormones out of whack if you’re constantly producing tonnes of your stress hormone cortisol! 

Stress also has a massive impact on our sleep, which as you will know from experience, a poor night's sleep throws you off for the entire day, if not the entire week! Sleep is where we rest, repair, create long-term memories, and recover, in fact it is arguably THE most important thing we should be doing for our health as humans.

YET, we tend to be completely okay sacrificing it time and time again for more things that are creating stress in our life. A lack of sleep not only tells your body to store more fat, but also encourages you to overeat (and not the good stuff), you typically reach for quick fixes of energy - like sugar and caffeine! 

You have to be managing your stress and getting enough sleep, this is a NON-NEGOTIABLE for achieving your goals… focus on having set boundaries around your work hours, and getting 7 - 9 hours sleep EVERY single night!

2. SIMPLE WHOLE FOODS:

Forget diets, eat REAL food, you know, the stuff without an ingredients list (or a minimal one), your body knows what to do with it! Yup… if you can’t pronounce the ingredient, chances are your body doesn’t know how to use it and it provides no nutritional value.

In fact, REAL foods like your meat, poultry, fish, fruits and veggies do not even come with an ingredients list. These are the kinds of foods your diet should be rich in. When you look at your plate, you should be asking yourself, is that enough protein? Is that enough greens? What NUTRIENTS am I getting! 

Then once you know your nutrient intake is great, you can weave in things that are sometimes foods if you want to. It is about balance, but whole real foods should make up at least 80% of your diet.

3. SUPPORT + SELF-CARE:

Don’t expect yourself to know how to do everything or to do everything for everyone else. Self-care and support go hand in hand. This can literally look like asking for more help from the people around you…

Remember, how easily you say yes to everyone and want to support, well others love to help too. It is OKAY to ask for help and it is okay to receive it too! Sharing the load makes for a much happier environment and YOU! Also, make it a non-negotiable to have at least 5 minutes of YOU time daily and an hour a week if you can, doing something you love!

If you want to take your health to the next level, and aren’t sure to start, it is worth investing in yourself. I cannot tell you how much my health has been fast tracked through having the support and guidance from coaches.

4. STRENGTH TRAINING:

Ladies… LIFT! If you want to boost your metabolism, support optimal hormone production, and feel empowered, start moving some weights! I cannot stress this enough. No matter what age you are, this will support your health and well-being. 

And NO it isn’t going to make you bulky, in fact it will help lean you out, get your bones stronger and of course help you feel stronger and fitter within yourself! 

Remember… We all start somewhere, so if it's 1kg or 100kg, you got this! Join a gym, take part in a group fitness program, whatever it looks like, but start picking up some weight. It doesn’t have to replace your exercise currently, but see if it can become something you do 2 - 3 x a week. The results will speak for themselves!

5. SUPPLEMENTS:

This is NOT a one size fits all! Make sure you’re supporting your body with the nutrients that we can’t get enough of through food, or are being depleted by stress! Unfortunately, when it comes to supplements, you definitely want to be careful what you put in the body as not all supplements are created equal! 

The other side of the supplement equation is that they do play a very important role! Nowadays our soils aren’t being replenished with the nutrients they once were and this leads to deficiencies of nutrients in our food supply, like zinc, iodine and selenium! And if they aren’t in the soil then they aren’t in our food and then we can’t get them! 

So, I recommend that you speak to a qualified health-care provider (like myself) when choosing supplements so you aren’t just taking anything off the shelves!

How To Heal Your Relationship With Food Part Two

HOW TO HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD - PART TWO

02 / MARCH / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

A couple of weeks ago I shared part one! If you missed it… check it out here before we dive into part two! 

Ready? 

Here’s how to ditch the GUILT and REMOVE the emotional eating.

IMPORTANT STEPS TO HEALING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD

STEP ONE:

1️⃣ ACKNOWLEDGE - acknowledge that you ate the food (sound simple) but often we don’t eat this way in front of others, and try to hide it from ourselves too. 

Also, acknowledge the guilt. Name it, call it out. 

Let it show it’s face instead of just being a feeling that you’re trying to suppress. 

When we name the feeling, it has nowhere to hide and we can start to move past it (thanks @alyssanobriga - turns out this tip works for food too).

STEP TWO:

2️⃣ ACCEPT - accept that it happened, accept that you feel the guilt, you can’t change the past so let’s not let it ruin the present or inhibit our future. 

Feel where the guilt is present in the body, is it the stomach, the heart, the mind, the chest, the throat, feel into the presence of the emotion that it has brought up if it serves you. 

Take a few deep breaths into the guilt, keep breathing through it without judgement, and let it pass. 

3️⃣ LET GO - let go of the feeling, let the guilt pass, move on from it and show up for yourself in the way you want to be. 

For the next meal you are going to have, make it one that nourishes your body, fills you up with nutrients and is going to truly satisfy you. 

Let go of the judgement you placed on yourself, let go of the guilt and know that each meal, each moment is a chance to start to embody the you you want to become. 

Make your choices from this place, not a place of guilt or hatred towards yourself (I know, I’ve been there). 

FINALLY...

Please know, it’s not about ‘starting fresh’ or having ‘cheat meals’ these labels only make things worse. 

It’s like we are giving ourselves permission to binge out and do a disservice to our bodies, knowing we can ‘start fresh’ the next day. 

Go back to that question in part one… if you truly feel like that food, and you’ve checked with yourself there’s not another driving factor behind it… then ENJOY IT! 

It’s about eating well for you, where you’re at, and restriction often makes things worse! 

So, be kind to your body, after all, it is the one TRUE HOME you have! 

Yours in Health,
Sheree xo

How To Heal Your Relationship With Food Part One

HOW TO HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD - PART ONE

16 / FEBRUARY / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

THE SECRET TO DITCHING THE DIET MENTALITY FOR GOOD… 

Do you ever feel like you can’t ‘TREAT YOURSELF’ or it will undo all your hard work? 🙅🏼‍♀️🍫

How was your weekend? Did you enjoy a meal out or two? Or maybe five? Or did you spend it feeling restricted or guilty?? 

Did you know that whether it is chocolate, pizza or just a regular tub of ice cream, if you want to eat the food or not, the choice is actually completely up to you! 

Now that might sound ridiculously obvious, but I cannot tell you how many people I’ve worked with (myself included), that had actually given all their power away to the food!

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY

How about instead of focusing on what you can’t have, focus on what you really want! 

Seriously! The amount of times I have actually passed up chocolate, ice cream and cake because I really didn’t feel like it, and other times where I have devoured more than my share! 

There was a time where bingeing was my go to, followed by purging… I won’t even tell you what happened to the poor giant Reese’s pieces peanut butter egg that I ate in one sitting.

But that was before I found the balance I now have. There is no restriction, so there is literally no need to binge or purge. 

I give myself full permission to have what I want, when I want, and this for me is truly FREEING! 

By listening to my body, hunger cues, feeling into whether or not I am wanting the chocolate from a place of lack and emotion, or because I truly want to enjoy it and savour every delicious mouthful, has been a GAME CHANGER! 

And if it worked for me (with my history of ED), then I know it can work for you! 

The more you feel restricted, 🚫 the more your body and mind will fight you! 

Try giving yourself grace and checking in with yourself 🤔 whether you really want the chocolate 🍫 or not, and if you do, ENJOY it! Every mouthful! 😍

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION

Next time you go to reach for food, any food, ask yourself ‘Is this what is really going to serve me?’ 

The key here is to answer HONESTLY! Listen to what your gut is telling you (like seriously), take that pause and then make your decision from a place of empowerment and completely GUILT FREE! 

You can have your cake 🍰 and eat it too! LITERALLY 🤩

The other thing you want to ask yourself, is WHY do I want the chocolate/wine/pizza? 

Is it to enjoy one with my family or friends?
Is it out of boredom and laziness? 
Is it because I am stressed out?
Is it because I am lonely? 
Is it because I am sad? 
Is it because I am tired?

(You get the idea) 

Start to bring CURIOSITY as to WHY there may be a feeling of GUILT coming up (often it is there far before you even eat the egg - am I right?) 

So, if we address the emotion, the guilt, the underlying reason we are reaching for it, whether that be a quick fix or a delicious treat, then we can prevent the GUILT. 

If that chocolate isn’t going to serve you in the moment, and what you’re really looking for is a hug, or some form of connection, then call a friend, find a flatmate that will give you a hug… it will mean you are giving the body and mind exactly what it wants. 

Then if you still want the chocolate after that, then ENJOY it.

But you can eat it knowing that it isn’t because there is an EMOTIONAL DRIVER or boredom, but actually because the chocolate is what you want! 

= NO GUILT!

Remember, just like ONE SALAD OR SMOOTHIE isn’t going to get you the body of your dreams, ONE SLICE OF PIZZA or four isn’t going to take it away! 

Sending you love, and know that you are never alone!

If you are struggling with emotional eating or feeling guilty around food, flick me a DM! I am happy to help you through it x

The 3 Key Ways To Know If You Are Ovulating

THE 3 KEY WAYS TO KNOW IF YOU ARE OVULATING!

02 / FEBRUARY / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

First off, let me start by saying the OVULATION isn’t just about falling pregnant, it plays a massive role in our overall health! In fact, it is the MAIN EVENT of your cycle… NOT your period!

Ovulation is essential to having healthy, well-balanced hormones in women during their menstrual years. It occurs between day 13 - 21 of your cycle and only happens for ONE day. 

Fortunately the ovulatory phase is anywhere from 3 - 4 days, so you do get the beautiful benefits during that time too… and of course a much happier, healthier second half of your cycle, as ovulation plays a key role in producing other key hormones such as progesterone and estradiol (main form of estrogen).

Ovulation is not simply the time you are the most fertile, nor is it just about the release of an egg, although this is extremely significant, when it comes to our health we want to ovulate for a number of other reasons too… 

The first sign that a women may have a health problem is anovulatory cycles (missing ovulation) and/or irregular periods, and can be indicative of an underlying issue with our metabolic health, adrenals, pituitary gland, thyroid, endocrine system, ovares or hypothalamus.  

THAT’S A LOT… RIGHT?!

In fact, without ovulation, it’s not even considered a REAL period! BTW… You will not ovulate if you are on the pill (or many other hormonal contraceptives).

So, let’s get to it, and make sure you are in fact ovulating!

SIGNS YOU ARE OVULATING

1.  Cervical Mucus 

This is an important sign and put first because it actually tells you a lot of information. Our cervical mucus changes in the lead up to your Big ‘O’ (ovulation) and tends to go whiter, thicker, creamier, stickier and form an egg white type consistency. 

Now, this doesn’t look the same for everyone, but if it is happening a few days before you are due for ovulation (~day 14), then it is a really good sign! The most important thing is to look at the pattern for your normal. It is also important to note down when this happens, as you can get a second wave of this mucus, but it isn’t a second ovulation. Which is why we need step two if you want to track properly!

2.  Basal Body Temperature

This is a great indicator for whether you have ovulated or not… if you are using this for contraceptive purposes, then just relying on your body temp alone is not going to help, because your temperature rises AFTER ovulation. 

If there is no rise, then you most likely didn’t ovulate. However, we are not looking for a massive spike in ovulation, it can be as little as 2/10ths of an increase, for example going from 97.4°F/36.4°C and 97.6°F/36.6°C and it should stay elevated for the remainder of that cycle.

Key thing here is to track at the same time every morning for the most accurate reading, with an oral thermometer.

3.  Cervical Position

Now this final one can vary depending whether or not you have had children. If not then your cervix will be closed after ovulation, however if you have had children it will never fully close. 

When you are ovulating, your cervix will be softer, open and higher… your body is trying to make it as easy to conceive as possible, so it makes sense right! 

And if you aren’t quite comfortable with checking your cervix position, here are a few other signs you might be ovulating: increased sex drive, confidence, strength, energy and motivation. Glowing skin and fuller lips can also happen around ovulation… 

Remember your body’s goal every month is to conceive whether you want it to or not so it is doing all it can to make you more attractive to a mate!

READY TO BALANCE YOUR HORMONES?

So there you have it, 3 key ways to tell if you are ovulating! Did you find this helpful? Please share with me in the comments below!
