Don't Wait For Your Wake Up Call!

Melissa Deally

As an Integrative Health Practitioner I have come to realize that we simply haven't been taught how to optimize our health, and that the average person has habits that are negatively impacting their health, due to this lack of knowledge, through no fault of their own. Public health and our school system simply don't teach us enough about nutrition, sleep, stress, gut health or how interconnected our bodies are! Modern life has us more sleep deprived, stressed out and the sickest ever, and I believe it is time to bring this education to you, so that you CAN be empowered in your health and you can then make the right choices for you and your family. The choices you make today impact your future 1 year, 5 years, 10 years + from now. It is never too early to start looking after your health, as Health is your TRUE wealth....without it what do you have? read less

The Unsung Hero In Heart Health | Ep 169
Join us for an eye-opening episode with Scheherazade, where she delves into the fascinating connection between Hormones & Heart Health that many are unaware of! 💖 She also sheds light on the "Unsung Hero" missing from our modern diet—a vital vitamin that prevents artery calcification, redirecting calcium to bones and teeth. Win-win-win! 🌟🩺 Scheherazade's mission is to spread this crucial knowledge and ensure every child receives this essential vitamin for the betterment of future generations. 🌱 Don't miss out on this informative discussion! 🫀🔬🥦FREE GIFT: Unlock the Vitamin K2 secret sauce!

Sheherazade discussed her journey from medicine to research on nutrition's role in wellness.Vitamin K2 and cardiovascular health @ 1:00Sheherazade explained vitamin K2 mobilizes calcium in arteries and bones, preventing calcification. K2 from fermented foods benefits heart and bone health by keeping calcium in bones rather than arteries.Stress and the autonomic nervous system @ 13:00Stress impacts the autonomic nervous system, with chronic stress harming the heart. Managing stress through relaxation supports balance between sympathetic "fight or flight" and parasympathetic "rest and digest" modes.Coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis @ 19:40Sheherazade detailed how inflammation and imbalances can damage artery walls, leading cholesterol to patch wounds and eventually harden plaques if healing is prolonged. Prevention through nutrition protects small blood vessels supplying the heart.Hormones and homeostasis @ 24:00Hormones communicate homeostasis, the body's balanced state. Vitamins D3 and K2 act as hormones for immune, heart, bone and skin health by facilitating calcium movement; balancing them prevents excess calcium deposits.Fermented foods and vitamin K2 sources @ 32:00Historically, grass-fed animals provided vitamin K2 but modern diets lack it. Fermented foods boost K2 intake, supporting Sheherazade's research developing a fermented chickpea powder to naturally supplement this missing nutrient.Prevention over treatment @ 39:00Studies show vitamin K2 reverses artery blockage within months, indicating coronary artery disease is reversible through prevention over late-stage treatment. Sheherazade advocates lifestyle changes to maintain cardiovascular health and harmony. About the Guest:Meet Scheherazade Rayat (MD, PhD), a spirited medical doctor and biotechnologist dedicated to enhancing health and wellbeing with a holistic view. With a blend of medical expertise and scientific curiosity, she has journeyed from researching sleep medicine to exploring the delightful world of food, uncovering potent healers along the way.In her vibrant journey, Scheherazade champions the idea of "food as medicine" and playfully adds, "and your supplements!" With a spark of enthusiasm, she believes...
