In this week’s bonus episode, I sit down with members of my functional medicine team for a discussion on the latest hot topics - starting with an Oscars night that will be remembered for years. By understanding what alopecia is, the different kinds of alopecia, triggers, and symptoms, we can begin to understand how those diagnosed with this condition are physically and emotionally impacted.. We also look at the negative effect mold has on depression and our mental health as a whole, how to get deep restorative sleep, unhealthy ingredients we should avoid in our snacks and how meditation helps brain health.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • A deep-dive into what an Alopecia diagnosis looks like and some of the frequent symptoms those with this autoimmune connection may suffer from
  • The correlation between mold exposure and our mental health and how to address some of the commonly linked anxiety-driven markers
  • Some of the ingredients we should be looking out for when we’re indulging on our healthy snacks
  • How sleeping with your lights on at night may have an imperative effect on your body’s insulin levels
  • The art of meditation and what frequent practice looks like in regards to progressing positive bodily mindfulness and wellness
