“Women are significantly more likely to be under-treated for cancer, heart disease and pain.” – Alexandra Jamieson (Click to Tweet)

 

Show Notes:

    • I sat down with Dr. Manny and I immediately felt like he was not into my opinions
    • I immediately tried to build rapport and I tried to even get him to laugh
    • His final comment to me about cravings was, “That was very entertaining!”

“Only 1 in 5 doctors are aware that women are more likely to die of heart disease than men.” – Alexandra Jamieson (Click to Tweet)

    • I wasn’t there to entertain, because Women’s health issues are so important to me
    • After the segment, I tried to brush off his “entertaining” comment
    • I even got him to agree to take a selfie with me
    • After we took the selfie, he said, “Well, that was all horse shit!”

“Even female health practitioners can have a gender bias towards women.” – Alexandra Jamieson (Click to Tweet)

    • My head was spinning – I knew he would have never said the same thing to a man
    • The female producer who booked the show was shocked to hear this
    • Last year I was on Dr. Oz last year and he could barely contain his eye roll
    • Men believe women are weak, silly and emotional and they dismiss our true needs

“We dismiss our cravings as bad because we have been told that we are dumb.” – Alexandra Jamieson (Click to Tweet)

    • The dismissive attitudes are exactly what women face everyday
    • The unexamined gender bias in medicine is killing us
    • I have so many examples of women’s medical disorders being dismissed by health practitioners
    • Need help advocating for yourself? Alex shares tips for being your own best advocate
    • Disrespect for women’s health concerns is rampant

“Vote for politicians who make women’s health a top priority!” – Alexandra Jamieson (Click to Tweet)

There is a FREE 3 part video series on my website that will be available until Monday morning and it will teach you how to trust what your body is telling you and listen to what your body needs. It’s time for us to love our bodies and trust ourselves. We are living in a sexist medical culture and now is the time to speak up about it. Falling in love with your body is the first step to getting well, and having your desires met.

Get the video series at http://alexandrajamieson.com/videoseries

Do you have a story of how you have been treated by a medical professional? I’d love to hear your story. Go to my blog at alexandrajamieson.com/blog and click on the little blue microphone on the right and leave me a message.

79 Master Your Inner Mean Girl with Melissa Ambrosini

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Welcome back my Clan of the Crave Bears! Today I will be interviewing Melissa Ambrosini about her new book called “Mastering your Mean Girl: The No-BS Guide to Silencing your Inner Critic and Becoming Wildly Wealthy, Fabulously Healthy and Bursting with Love”.

Before we talk about how we beat ourselves up, I want to share a little about our inner mean girl and how it comes out in girl-on-girl and woman-on-woman bullying. I see it a lot in the media and on social media, and talking with Melissa about how we beat ourselves up, I think it speaks volumes about our culture and how we are hard on other women.

Girls bully differently than boys. Generally, you would think that bullying is more physical, but girls are much more emotional and strategic about it. They can be quietly kind of vicious. We have this idea that bullies come from abuse or bad homes or have low self-esteem but really bullies have a superior sense of self and they are highly confident in their abilities. So how can we help our kids to not become bullies or stand up against bullies? Staying quiet and being complacent and not saying anything is giving the bully its staying power.

Many people believe that if they step up and confront a bully they will become a target. Bullies don’t like to be confronted. Bullies are about control and stepping in and confronting them it threatens their sense of power. You can try and defuse a bully by trying to joke about something to get the bully’s mind on something else or just act bored. These acts can defuse a bully without being confrontational.

I would love to hear your experiences with bullying and how a mean girl experience affected you or someone you love. You can join our FREE Facebook group at bit.ly/wfdgroup or you can tweet or Instagram me @deliciousalex. Share with us your story, what worked for you, how you stood up to a bully or how it affected you or what you are trying to heal from. This issue is big!

Author, speaker, Australian self-empowerment coach, Melissa Ambrosini believes it is time to silence our inner mean girls. She suffered herself with eating disorders, addiction and relationships she thought she could never leave Melissa’s body broke down. She came out on the other side with a mission to show other young women how to conquer that inner mean girl as she did herself.

Don’t forget to check out my FREE 3 part series called Cure Your Cravings: 5 Ways to Feel Peace and Energy in Your Body Once and For All. It will be launching on March 21st. Go sign up at alexandrajamieson.com/videoseries and you will be signed up to have these videos sent straight to your inbox. I really break down on how to eat and how to change your mindset. See you there!

78 How Women Can Play Big + Why It’s So Hard, with Tara Mohr

 

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Hello my clan of the crave bears! Welcome back! On today’s show we are going to be talking about what our cravings are for speaking our truth. Our desires for sharing our big ideas and how challenging it is, especially for women. I know we got some cool dudes that listen to the show but this really speaks to the female issue of playing small.

The next Cravings Cleanse is going to start on April 14th. I really want you all to be aware of it. I’m putting out a three-part video training series that you can sign up for. I will talk more about this next week. Make sure you are on my newsletter list at alexjamieson.com so that you get the announcement when this video training series is coming out. It’s going to be so awesome! I was talking to one of my cravings cleanse members from this last craving cleanse and she is having these feelings of overwhelm, like she has no time for herself. I told her that she needs me time like she needs air! But when you make this stand for me time you will be a better woman. And this ties in with the show today with Tara Mohr. We women are afraid to speak up and say what we need. We are so use to being that person that everyone else needs. It’s so hard especially as women which is why I wanted to have Tara Mohr on the show.

Tara Mohr’s new book “Playing Big” is so good. I love this book! She is an expert on women’s leadership and well-being. She helps women play bigger in sharing their voice and bringing forward their ideas into work and into life. So the great thing about Tara Mohr is that I loved this interview so much and I loved her book so much that I said to her that I would love to give a free copy of her book to all my swag bag winners this year.
