Hey! I recorded a PODCAST!

No, really!

Hello, dear ones. How is your 2016 going? One BIG goal I had set for this year is to FINALLY get back to Nacho Mama's Podcast (still available on iTunes and Stitcher). Not that I haven't been podcasting at all, of course I've been very active over at the Book Versus Movie podcast my dear friend Margo D (@BrooklynFitChik) and I have been producing. But I have sorely missed doing Nacho Mama's Podcast-so I determined to find a way to get it broadcast.

I'm so glad to be back! One of the main reasons I've wanted to resurrect the podcast is that there are so many lovely podcasts I want to share with you. The two I mention in this episode are:

The Dependent Independent
The Fat Father Chronicles

And there will be more! Plus I can finally answer a few of the questions you all have been asking in my absence.

In the there anything else you all would like to know? Seriously, I'd love to answer your questions on the air so send 'em right along, folks. You can ask in the comments, tweet me @shesnachomama or email me

And let me know how you are! I've missed you. What are some of YOUR 2016 goals?

Wishing you love with extra cheese-
Nacho Mama

UPDATE: Breast Thermogram Results with Video

btw-the scan in this photo? NOT me!
Because you were dying to know, right?


All is good in Boobville. I received a lengthy report with lots of thermographic images of my chest and torso (some of which are in the video below) and everything looks good. No estrogen dominance, no suspicious hotspots. HOWEVER...they suggested giving up underwire bras because of the massive compression they seemed to be causing. digestion. No bueno. Again, the photo is in the video, but let's just say there was a potential Elvis situation going on there.

Too soon?

I've been working on getting things, er, going in the digestion department, so GO ME (I couldn't resist).

I must say, I am really noticing a difference since changing to non-wire bras. I didn't know I was feeling short of breath by the end of the day, but I guess I was! Yikes! Stay tuned for a bra review.

Here's my video giving a few more details on the thermography experience and pictures.

In other news, I am really, truly working on bringing back the podcast. Really! In addition to launching my coaching business, I also recently became a Certified David Wolfe Nutritionist, so there will be much to discuss.

What's new with all of YOU? Have any health goals for 2016? Do tell!

Hello dear ones!

Well, I finally went to get my breast thermogram at Silk Thermal Imaging here in San Diego. I was very fortunate to meet Catherine Johnson, who runs STI, about 8 years ago. I've since had the privilege of hearing her speak on the subject of women's health and breast cancer many, many times. By the time I was in my mid-30s, I'd made up my mind that, when the time came, I'd get my breast cancer prevention screening via thermogram, not mammogram. 

Thermographic technology has been around since the 1970s, but I am still surprised how many women have never heard of it. Here's a great video by Dr. Mercola, explaining the benefits of breast screening by thermography:
I thought I'd take you along with me to my screening, to meet Catherine and to see how easy it is to get a thermogram. Catherine was such a sport about appearing on camera!

STAY TUNED for my "results" video! I promise to let you know what they say. 

Whichever preventive health screening technology you choose to employ, please don't neglect your health this holiday season! Don't put off addressing those nagging symptoms because the best gift you can give to the people you love is a HEALTHY YOU.

Video REVIEW: Women's Wellness Conference 2015

Many of you have asked about my impression of the Women's Wellness Conference I attended last month. It was such a terrific, inspiring experience. I learned so much and I only attended ONE DAY of this annual three day conference. Here's my video review:

Right now you can get unlimited viewing of ALL the talks for only $47! Click HERE to learn more. Here's just a taste of what I saw:
Don't miss out on next year's conference or the Longevity Now conference, coming in April of next year. If you are in or near Southern California, GO. If not, look for opportunities to stream this valuable information on their website (linked above).

I really believe that no one is going to be a better advocate for your health than YOU. We owe it to ourselves to take advantage of all the information available so we can make educated choices that are uniquely relevant to each of us.

I can't wait for a chance to attend the next conference that this impressive team puts together. 

By the way-the thyroid doctor is Alan Christiansen. His book is The Adrenal Reset Diet (not an affiliate link).

Wishing you love and health with extra cheese-

Disclosure: I was granted a press pass to attend this event for review purposes. The above is my honest opinion. No, really!
