Episode 39- Stack Your Life for More Natural Movement

We are all given the same 24 hours but it always seems like it takes a trade-off to fit certain things in to that day.

Or, you can spend time with your kids, playing Candyland for 2 hours, but will you then have time to fix a whole food meal? Learn how to stack all the things that matter to you so that you can move more and stress less.

Episode 34- Thoughts on Incontinence

Over 25 million Americans suffer from some form of incontinence. Most sufferers
don’t like to talk about it. For those that do, they are offered few solutions aside
from adult diapers, pharmaceuticals or surgery. But incontinence is a symptom of greater movement and lifestyle issues, and there are steps—LITERALLY!—that you can take to begin improving the health of your pelvis and the functions housed within. Listener Discretion Advised: there is no profanity in this episode, but it does contain (sometimes silly) discussions about sex, poop, and penises, so choose your listening company and environment accordingly.

Episode 33- Cycling

If you cycle, you’re fit, right? Riding a bike is not a natural human movement, and cycling a lot with little other movement endeavors has the components of a junk-food movement diet. Let’s look beyond the few single nutrients that biking provides and explore a more nutritious movement diet—because doing the same thing over and over again means you are missing a whole spectrum of movement nutrients. Katy answers questions about bone density, kids and bikes, and the biological tax of bicycles.
