89 Should You Get Plastic Surgery? with Dr. Anthony Youn

Alexandra-Jamieson-Featured-Art-The-Crave-Cast-DrAnthonyYoun-Ep89

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Welcome, my Clan of the Crave Bears! Today we are talking about confidence, putting our best face forward, and the pressure on women to look as young as possible. Dr. Anthony Youn is our guest today, and I’ll be honest, I have struggled with whether to bring you this show or not. Do I really want to encourage plastic surgery? Dr. Youn is a leading plastic surgeon, and I happened to read his book and I agreed with about 98% of the book. It’s called The Age Fix and it is really good. He talks about how to feed yourself so that your skin looks and feels great. He shares so many non-surgery options and I completely agree with that.

He became interested in plastic surgery because he had an overgrowth of his chin, and he actually had plastic surgery to correct it as a young man. His experience with plastic surgery has shaped his career. I think you will enjoy this episode. I will say that he did make a comment about antibiotics in the episode and I probably wouldn’t take antibiotics. But that’s the only thing I didn’t agree with him.

I also got married last weekend! We had about 120 people there in the park to bless us for our wedding. It was such a lovely time! There are so many psychological benefits of witnessing the rites of passage and the blessing of each other. You actually release oxytocin and this is a very healthy thing for each of us. It creates a community when you bring people together around a rite of passage event! I was in awe and cried the entire time. It was beautiful. I was thrilled to be able to introduce my friends to each other! Seeing them appreciate each other was good for my soul.

Since we are talking about skin today, I wanted to remind you that I have a special deal for you with AnnMarie Gianni Skin Care – my favorite skincare products. This offer expires June 7th. The products are luxurious and safe and simply yummy! It’s endorsed by health experts and I think you will love their products.

Dr. Youn is an MD, and a board certified plastic surgeon. He has been rated as one of the top plastic surgeons in the country. He’s regularly on TV, and also has written several books. He has such great recommendations that we all can use. Surprisingly, his recommendations are not all about surgery!

Alexandra-Jamieson-Featured-Art-The-Crave-Cast-Dr Anna Cabeca-Ep88

Welcome back my Clan of the Crave Bears! I’m getting married next week! Yes, I am. We just wanted something low-key and stress-free, so we are getting married at the park a couple blocks from home and then walking to our favorite neighborhood restaurant for our favorite meal – brunch! It’s an exciting time and we just really want it to be a special time with our family and friends.

This past weekend I went to a couple of seminars for my own benefit and wow, was it intense! I had a family constellations workshop, with really allowed me to connect with my family lineage and work through emotions and habits, and it was very nice. Then it was off to a Tantric Yoga class, which was definitely more intense, but a great way to spend a Sunday.

I wanted to talk with you about two things today, I’ve  got a great interview with my dear friend: Dr. Anna Cabeca coming up, ah, Dr. Anna is an amazing hormone expert, I’m so thrilled to have her on the show, but she’s also kinda on my board of advisors, I meet with her and also a couple of other women, and couple times a month we do a Skype date and we talk about our businesses and how we can support each other, and I’m always learning so much from her, so be sure to stay tuned through the end, cause we’re gonna be talking about menopause and hormones and even if you’re not in menopause or pre or peri-menopause, what you can be doing now, so that your hormones are balanced, so that you feel good, so that you can get rid of your brain fog, huge, huge topic so stay through to the end with my interview with Dr. Anna Cabeca.

How we face the world and how we feel about our face and the health of our skin is such a huge part of our lives, but we don’t always think about it and I wanted to share one of my absolute favorites, I use this stuff every day, several times a day and I have been for years now, and I have a say, when I go get a facial every once in a while or if I have to go get professional make-up done, you know for a photo shoot or being on TV,  they may say this to everyone but all of the make-up artists they always or the facialists, they say  Wow your skin looks great, how old are you?

You really can change your skin in just a week or two and I know because I started using these products and they are awesome! I love the way my skin feels, I love the way it looks. I think you will love their stuff just as much as I do, so this is a great time to try them out. It’s you know,  in honor of Mother’s Mama Mojo Month right? All month long on my blog here on the podcast, talking about things that mamas and those who love their mamas — things that we want for our self, for our health. So we can talk, we’ll talk about menopause and hormones later on with Dr. Anna, and now all about skin. So Ann Marie and Kevin, the founders of  Ann Marie Gianni  skincare have put together three different sample kits depending on your skin type that you can get now and try out and it’s a great low-risk chance to see if they work for you.

Now the kits are only $10 bucks but they’re shipped to you free and you get a $10 off coupon for a future purchase.  Just try it out, if you like the products, and purchase a full-size product in the future, you’re kit is essentially free.

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Welcome to episode 87. Just had my Mothers’ Day celebration!   It’s May in New York City! I was teaching at a retreat from Friday and Saturday and came back early morning to be with family. Cooked pancakes with the kids and had breakfast, played video games together. Went out to get my acupuncture – one of my favorite and absolutely necessary healthcare habits. I go at least once a week, pay $30. Then woke up from my needle nap to have tea with a dear girlfriend. We had some nice iced beverage. I bought healthy snacks and stuffed them in my bag and then went to  the movie theater to meet my kid.  I usually take my organic popcorn. If the theater had healthy snacks, I’d buy them.  We went and saw The Avengers, Captain America, Captain Marvel. I’m a big Marvel comics fan.  It was fun! I had some alone time, some friend time, and some kid time.

85 Journal Your Journey with Katie Dalebout

Alexandra-Jamieson-Featured-Art-The-Crave-Cast-Katie Dalebout-Ep85

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Welcome my Clan of the Crave Bears! I know your life is incredibly busy, so it means so much that you are spending this time with me.

Today we are going to be talking about Katie Dalebout’s new book, Let It Out – A Journal Through Journaling. One of the things we have talked so much about is a gratitude practice. Having a gratitude practice is a strength and it allows you to open up your mind to hope, positive thoughts, and learning.

Although I believe in a gratitude practice and I even have a gratitude jar in my kitchen, I know that there can be a downside to gratitude. Negativity bias is something we will talk about and how it can actually benefit us in some ways, but it can also rule us. A gratitude practice can counteract your negativity bias.

Gratitude is not a panacea – it’s not a cure all. We don’t want to overdose on gratitude. Writing down 10 gratitudes a day might make you feel like you failed if you can’t come up with 10. There is no such thing as “more is better” in the gratitude department. So, set realistic goals for your gratitude.

You may not realize that you can also fail to recognize your own role in your success. Thanking everyone else, while downplaying your own contribution isn’t great for your self-esteem. So pick one day and time each week that you will journal your gratitude. Write down 3 things you are grateful for, AND write down YOUR contribution to that success. It isn’t luck, and it isn’t being in the right place at the right time. Recognize your own awesomeness!

Katie Dalebout is an author, coach and podcaster and she has a lot of insight into self-acceptance and journaling.  I’m so excited to have her on the show today. I had to reach out to her when my family was having some difficult times these last few weeks with Bob’s back surgery, and she gave me some journaling advice. I have to say that it has helped!

Show Notes:

  • How Katie began journaling
  • Journaling can help you sort out your own messages from societies messages
  • The self-awareness that Katie found through journaling
  • How journaling can help with your meditation practice
  • How you can heal your thoughts by facing your thoughts
  • How expressive writing can be useful to us

“When you ask a good question, your intuition will give a good answer.” Katie Dalebout (Click to Tweet)

  • Why we have so much resistance to facing our feelings
  • How you can write to the higher part of yourself, your intuition
  • Ways to learn from your journaling
  • Journaling helps the things you are ready to let go of
  • How to buy a journal – what kind, what brand, etc.
  •  can see emotion when you write our something on paper

“When you are honest with yourself, you can be honest with others.” Katie Dalebout (Click to Tweet)

  • You may only want to write pretty things in a pretty journal
  • A yellow legal pad will give you the ability to be as raw and real as you need to be
  • Should you keep your old journals?

Welcome back my Clan of the Crave Bears! If you’ve been listening lately, you know that my sweet husband Bob has had an exploded disc in his back and he has been in excruciating pain the last several weeks. He’s been struggling with this and finally had surgery on Monday. The Doctor expects him to make a full recovery. I’ve learned how difficult the role of a caregiver is. Sometimes as ladies, we take on so much in the role of a caretaker and it takes a toll on us too. So, it’s important to remember that you need to keep your own self-care rituals intact.

I’ve made a decision that’s a pretty big deal to me. Based on an email I received from a member of my Facebook group, I have decided to offer a secret tool to help you achieve all your food goals. I am allowing 25 women to join the Cravings Cleanse and I will be your personal coach. I will be helping you with the tools you need to finish the program. You whole life can change when you cleanse your body and reduce inflammation. I will close registration after the next 25 women join. Go to www.cravingscleanse.com and get in before the registration closes. You will get clear, clean and energized.

Today’s guest is Amie Valpone and she has a new book called Eating Clean and she is also the founder of the TheHealthyApple.com. Amie has the story that a lot of us have. She’s had a lot of messes in her life and she has finally been able to turn the corner on her medical issues and live a happy and fulfilled life. It wasn’t easy, but she had to overhaul her entire relationship with food.

He’s been in pain for so long, and not knowing what is wrong, and it’s been a really hard time for all of us. Being a care taker is hard, and these hard times are when it’s easy to get out of the good habits you’ve created.

“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.
