Living and Managing a Healthy Lifestyle

I had the opportunity to be a guest on FollowMe Fridays with Joan and Priya to discuss "Living and Managing a Healthy Lifestyle" It was so much fun and I had a blast! Special thanks to Joan and Priya for having me on!

Here is the link below to listen to the recording: https://talkradio.nyc/20180406-living-managing-healthy-life/

Segment 1

Joan and Priya start the show recapping their week which includes Joan getting work done, getting rest after TedX Lincoln Square, reading former guest and TedX Speaker Jeffery Shaw’s book, Joan’s friend Arthur Aidala getting on WABC Radio.

Joan’s win of the week: Go Presenting on municipalities in Plymouth, Massachusetts this upcoming Tuesday.

Priya’s win of the week: Ava celebrating her birthday.

Joan: “A little lipstick lightens up your day.”

April showers bring May flowers! Joan and Priya go into great books they’re reading about entrepreneurship. We should not limit ourselves to the 80/20 concept. Instead of spending 80% of our time in 20% of our customers, why don’t we put in 100% of the time in 100% of our customers? That brings us to our guest today, Dr. Nina Manipon, ND, who is a female entrepreneur and the owner of Revitalize Health and Wellness Center.

Joan’s Win of the Week: Going to speak at the municipalities of Plymouth Massachusetts about how to use social media to build community and how to use it more effectively when issues come up such as disaster recovery.

Priya’s Win of the Week: Celebrating her daughter’s birthday!!

Segment 2

They welcome on to the show Dr. Nina Manipon, ND to the show. They ask Dr. Nina what naturopathic medicine is. How she does consultations through the phone. The expensiveness of going through diets involved in treatments and the importance of a diet diary. Joan goes through her experience with sugary foods. Dr. Nina talks about the misconceptions of low fat foods and agave. Finally, importance of taking care of your gut.

Dr. Nina on tips for buying organic foods: “If you’re buying thin skinned products, better to buy it organic. If it’s thick skinned, its okay.”

Dr. Nina on the misconception of eating less fats: “Fats and cholesterol are important. Your brain is 80 percent fat.”

Dr. Nina on Agave: “Agave actually spikes up your blood sugar.”

Dr. Nina dives deep into women’s health and naturopathic medicine, which is getting to the root of the problem so that the body can heal itself. It’s holistic medicine where they use natural forms of treatment like herbal medicine, hydrotherapy and acupuncture. She tackles living and managing a healthy life by first starting with the gut—what are you putting in your body?

This is the foundation in order to make sure the body works well. Self-care is so important in ensuring the best foundation for yourself and your body. Great place to find organic vegetables and fruits is ewg.org (environmental working group). For example, for vegetables and fruits that have leafy greens like lettuce and thin skin like blueberries, buy organic and ones with thicker skin like banana you can buy however you like. Keep a diet diary! Just to see what you’re eating to make sure you have a healthy diet. The core to managing your life starts with your gut. Be careful of the leaky gut!

Segment 3

Katie Claire returns from her break in Rochester to give another Three for Three. Katie welcomes April in praising all things about the Spring Season. From celebrating Easter, Passover or Opening Day Baseball. The theme for Three for Three in April is awareness.

Joan and Priya then ask Dr. Nina about what they can do to beat allergy season, her use of blogs for her profession, how to go through a vegan diet properly, and how to combat the struggles of keeping up with a diet.

Dr. Nina on beating allergy season: “Make sure to beat allergy season early. Take vitamin C, an anti-inflammatory and vitamin D which heals up the immune system.”

Dr. Nina on the problem with gluten wheat: “Unfortunately, a lot of our wheat is sprayed with pesticides.”

Katie Claire is excited for April since that means spring has “officially” sprung! Might take a while for spring to come to New York though. Let’s be open to people and focus on awareness. Share great charities and causes near and dear to your heart with us!

To be prepared for spring, a good amount of rest and beat allergy season before it comes. Start blocking those histamines now and take Vitamin C and Vitamin D, which Dr. Nina recommends you get your levels checked since typically people are deficient in Vitamin D.

Dr. Nina explains that vegan means plant based and no meat and gluten-free means no wheat. Figure out what diet works for you whether it means no dairy, meat or sugar and try it out for 21 days to figure out what makes you feel good. Some tips on self-care are to get 10-15 minutes before your kids or dog do and take some slow breaths to ground yourself.

Segment 4

Joan and Priya connect Dr. Nina Manipon with “Get Off Your Acid” Dr. Darryl. Joan asks Dr. Nina why she chose to station her practice in Connecticut, fighting for licensing in New York State, and how one can get into Naturopathic practices.

They wrap up the show with talking to Katie about her experience watching TedX Lincoln Square.

Joan and Priya are curious why Dr. Nina chose Connecticut and New Jersey to open her practices. First of all, New Jersey is her hometown. And for Connecticut, it is a licensed state and it’s one of the few states that are licensed. New York is not and would require other licenses like acupuncture.

If you want to get into this field, get an undergraduate degree, go to a 4-year medical school program and then residency. To get in touch with Dr. Nina, contact her through her website at revitalizewc.com! [][3]
