Do you have, or have you had some issues with your nether regions? If so, today's episode is super important for you, as well as for all the other ladies out there, as Alex talks to Dr. Anna Cabeca about all things vulva health and offers you some real deal education on the subject. Listen in to learn some really important information about this often neglected subject.

Although your vulva may not really be a part of your body that you've given a lot of attention to, on today's show Alex goes into a number of pretty personal details about some issues that she's been having, that a lot of ladies also tend to have, with the dryness, the incontinence and the pain. Today's episode deals with your sexual and your hormonal health and Alex and Dr. Cabeca, who's been a woman's hormonal expert for years, talk about the stuff that tends to happen as you get older- and, quite interestingly, the stuff that seems to be happening to younger and younger women today. Today, they talk about what you can do to heal it and how to avoid it and get healthy and they will also be talking about the spiritual aspects of all of this. Listen in now, to hear this really great interview, where Dr. Cabeca and Alex discuss the foundations of what it means to be a happy, healthy woman, who is satisfied in her body.

Today, I want to go into battle against “The Goddess Myth.” A TIME Magazine article attempted to address one of our culture’s most pervasive problems, but I think they missed the big picture. Our media paints a picture of perfect, goddess-like womanhood.  You’ve seen the pictures: the natural birthing mama with a fully organic household and effortless beauty in spades. These images can be damaging because they never allow for imperfections. Real goddesses had both a light and a dark side. Rather than saying women shouldn’t compare themselves to goddesses, the article actually states that women aren’t worthy of goddess-like reverence. Apparently, we have to be perfect to be revered. That isn’t true of female deities from cultures around the globe. I’m going to show you how. 

 

It is impeccable timing that I have the incredible Claire Wasserman with me today. Claire is the mastermind behind Ladies Get Paid, a program that connects women in business to other women to help bridge the knowledge gap. We’ve talked about the wage gap, the glass ceiling, and how women feel unable to negotiate. Well, now you are going to be connected to the resources that tell you how to fight it. Claire knows that many of these problems are systematic, but that doesn’t stop her from joining together communities of women to fight the system. What is beautiful about Ladies Get Paid is that the focus is on women taking agency and advocating for themselves. 

 

It’s time for some things to change. Women should feel like they have a place in the workforce. Organizations like Ladies Get Paid are making that happen. Be a part of the change, and give this episode a listen.

What in the world has you feeling like shit? We all have our vices and our habits, but have you ever stopped to think that these habits we form over time might eventually stop serving our happiness? What if those things we think are protecting our happiness are actually making us feel like shit? We are women who feel deeply and want to embrace happiness, but there are things in our lives that keep us from going at happiness with everything that we’ve got. That is exactly what my friend and guest, Andrea Owen, is talking about in her new book How To Stop Feeling Like Shit

Are you ready for a truth bomb or two today? Andrea lays it all out there as she shares her toughest moments, her biggest heartbreaks, and then her mightiest triumphs. We get real about numbing mechanisms, the many faces of perfectionism, and what we can do about those things. It’s time for us to own our shit, and embrace the hard work of healing. Now is time to start. You’ll be ready after listening to this conversation with Andrea.

Are you curious about meditation? Or have you already tried doing it and found yourself becoming really frustrated? If so, today's show is just for you. We have a super inspiring interview today with Ali Smith, one of the co-founders and co-leaders of The Holistic Life Foundation. At the Holistic Life Foundation, they are bringing the skills of mindfulness to kids and this is having a very positive impact on them- and really quickly! Ali and his partners go out into the schools, both public and private, in the Baltimore area and they teach meditation. In the schools where they have introduced their mindfulness programs, the number of suspensions and detentions have been drastically reduced, with some schools even having zero suspensions, after instituting the program. This has brought The Holistic Life Foundation a whole lot of attention, over the last few years. Listen in now, to find out more.

 

Alex was really fortunate to have met Ali at Quad City's Health Conference in Iowa, at the beginning of 2017. Ali was taught to meditate, by his father at a very young age, but due to unforseen circumstances, his meditation practice fell by the wayside while he was still a child. When he was in his early twenties, he started searching for some answers and for a way to overcome his anxiety, so he started the process of mindfulness all over again. You're really going to love this interview, so listen in, to find out more about Ali and the awesome results of his Mindful Moment Program for schools.

In a Post-9/11 world, the threat of extremist terrorists is a concerning and much-politicized fear for many. We’ve all seen the movies and read the stories of counter-terrorism efforts by the CIA. It may come as a surprise to you, then, that the CIA’s real front man for many undercover anti-terror missions in the Middle East was not actually a man at all. Against all odds and expectations, Michelle Rigby Assad led many successful missions in a male-dominated field within a male-dominated culture. How in the world did she do it? 

    Today, I sit down with Michelle to talk about her upcoming book, Breaking Cover, where she shares how she became a CIA agent, used her knowledge of Arab culture and language to earn her spot in the Debriefing Room, and then go deep undercover over in the Middle East. It was always a little like walking a tightrope between knowing she was the right woman for the job, and dealing with the insecurities and self-doubt that many of us experience even in less dangerous situations. Michelle puts on display true empathy, honor, and intelligence, proving that your unique gifts are what make you invaluable, not your appearance and gender. I can’t wait for you to hear her incredible stories today as we navigate what it means to be a woman in the world.

Do you, as a woman, feel unsafe or unprotected in your body? Do you feel scared or anxious lately and find yourself eating too much and putting on weight? If so, it's hardly surprising, because there's a lot happening in the country right now, that makes us feel really vulnerable and there have been some shocking things happening in the news lately that we really need to talk about. Recently, a man in Michigan who raped a very young woman (a twelve-year-old girl, actually), has won joint custody of the child of the victim! This case is one the first of it's kind, however, due to there being no laws at all preventing rapists from asserting their parental rights over a child in seven states- including Michigan, this is unlikely to be the last. Listen in as Alex shares a little of what happened, in this outrageous example of how women are really left unprotected lately and of how women's rights really are under attack currently, with children even being thrown into the mix.

Are you a micro-managing Mama who feels ashamed that your outer success feels inauthentic to you?  Are you frustrated because you can't manage your own diet when you are managing a huge multi-million dollar portfolio for your company?  Or do you feel secretly jealous of the women who really seem to have it all figured out? If so, Alex can really relate! She 'had it all' and still couldn't relax.  She used to be a control freak and she really tried to do it all herself. She copied everyone's systems and followed the rules to the letter- she was a real Type A Girl and it worked, but only for a while. Then she would either sabotage herself, or things would just stop working. Listen in to find out what Alex discovered, about getting graceful with change and about what really will happen to you, if you unshackle your innate desires and start honoring your inner wildness.

How would you like to reclaim the joy of your body? What would it be like for you to feel really safe and comfortable in your body, every single day?  So many of us have become so used to ignoring, denying and even mistrusting the messages that  our bodies are giving us, that even when we're facing a real-life trauma and we really need all the aspects of our bodies, in order to overcome the challenge, we find  ourselves scattered and disconnected from our greatest strengths. So, today we have Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, the author of Reclaiming Your Body- Healing Your Trauma And Awakening Your Body's Wisdom, on the show. Listen in and find out what Suzanne has to teach you, about healing yourself and reclaiming the joy of your body.

She's been working to empower people, through Cranio-Sacral Therapy and other Body Work modalities, to experience joy in every moment and without burning out, for more than thirty years. This empowerment is based on learning how to reclaim your body, so today we will be covering some of the practical tools and skills that she teaches, all of which have been helping people across the world, to improve their lives, their well-being, their joy, their self-worth and even their creativity and the growth of their businesses. Listen in now, to learn about tapping into your body's innate wisdom.

Today’s show is about one of the most important rules I have learned in my life. Deliciously happy women have some uncommon skills, and today we are talking about validating yourself. I had to learn to validate my own damn self and it wasn’t an easy process. Why do we need validation from others? Why can’t we be content with our own validation? I had to learn to trust myself. I needed someone else to tell me that my thoughts and feelings were valid. I was trained to look outside myself for guidance. I was taught not to trust myself and to question my knowing. It’s a trap to always think we need someone else to tell us what is right and what we need to do.

If you've been listening to this show, you know that it's all about helping us, as women, to create our own rules in life...but why should we care about that? Well, there are many reasons and the truth of it is that most of us are really suffering, from trying to live life by someone else's rules. We tend to live with false beliefs that make our lives really hard, pulling us right out of alignment and causing us to live in an inauthentic way.

 

So, last week, Alex decided to put the question out on Facebook and Instagram, to find out from all you Rulers out there, which rules, norms or social constructs you see people following, that actually make them miserable. She got a really huge response, so listen in now, as she shares some of the rules that you, as listeners, would like to erase, or rewrite.

Last week was the major solar eclipse.  Alex was leading a private two day retreat for one of her private VIP clients at the time, doing some really deep work. The vibe, as they got closer to the apex of the solar eclipse, got really intense and weird and they both felt that the energy during those two days had become heightened. It was a really powerful experience and things became super clear, super fast and by the end of their two days together, her client really felt a life changing shift. She felt like a new person, reborn! So, if you're thinking of going away on a retreat, or working with a coach, Alex really encourages you to do it now, as she sees this time as the right time to do it.

How does love actually work? Is it really possible to fall in love with anyone? Today we're going into a powerful interview about love! 

In today's interview with Mandy Len Catron, we are going to explore love on a really profound level. Mandy's written a book, which is a beautiful tale as well as a process that she managed to unearth, where you really can fall in love with anyone. Mandy has thirty-six questions in her process, that can be used to foster compassion, understanding, and connection with literally anyone. All of us can really use this powerful tool, in this day and age, to help us to connect with those we feel hatred or anger either from or towards. Alex really encourages you to listen in very carefully and with an open heart, as  Mandy talks about the book she wrote in 2015, which became a New York Times Modern Love Piece.  It's called How To Fall In Love With Anyone and it went insanely viral, being one of the most shared articles in The Times, that year.  In our current times, we really need to learn how to connect with the people who are different from us or the ones that we don't know much about. That is, ultimately, what will save us. Listen in now!

Stress, anxiety, deadlines--life’s unexpected twists and turns. When the universe hits you hard, it’s easy to want to turn to the things that comfort us. What better comfort could there be than food—the thing that sustains and re-energizes us. For those of you whose comfort-eating has turned to emotional eating, you might be dealing with skin problems, weight gain, and fatigue. You’ve tried diets, exercise regimens, and every pill on the market, and still nothing works. You find that if you have a bad day, you reach for the ice cream before you know what’s happening. 

 

What’s the solution? Can there be an end to the emotional eating cycle? This week, Tricia Nelson, author, and reformed emotional eater talks about Healing Your Hunger. Tricia knows that there is a spiritual and mental root to our emotional eating that no diet plan could ever address. At one point in her life, Tricia was ready to give up. Nothing worked for her until she found her coach and later husband Roy who led her towards spiritual healing. Now Tricia writes and shares her many years of knowledge and experience to help you heal your emotional eating habits TODAY.

How well do you work with money? Do you struggle to keep within the limits of your budget? Or are you perhaps looking for a new and better way to earn a living? Today's guest, Amanda Steinberg, is the founder of Daily Worth.com. and she also has a brand new book out, called Worth It, which is all about money- her relationship with money, how to deal with money, her own personal journeys with money, all really fascinating and inspiring stuff. So, if wealth, financial planning, budgeting, or even the thought of making more money is something that's on your mind, you definitely want to listen to this!  

 

As you know, Alex loves to talk about current events and how politics impacts on our feminine  lives.  Well, there really seems to be too much going on right now, to keep on top of it all. The closing of so many Planned Parenthood clinics is  like a plague sweeping across America at the moment. Did you know that the only abortion clinic in Kentucky is in danger of closing? That's something that's affecting the lives of millions of women and their ability to be healthy and to choose the direction of their own lives. As there is so much going on, Alex is encouraging you to go and listen to one of her favorite podcasts, called Hellbent. Hellbent is a twice a week, feminist politics podcast,  which goes into all the details of the stuff that Alex gives you the broader strokes on. So, go and check it out- it's really awesome! 

 

With all of this going on, Alex has decided to talk about something good, today. It's so easy to focus on what's scary, or annoying, or exhausting, or even infuriating, but right now, we'll talk about gratitude, which is a really powerful, positive psychology tool. Alex wants our tribe to share some good things, so she starts off by reading some of them to you now, written by some of the members of Her Rules Radio Facebook Group, where there are currently over seventeen hundred women sharing about their lives! Listen in and become inspired by the really heartfelt gratitude messages that they have shared.

How do you decide that you are beautiful? What can you do in your life that makes you feel beautiful? These days, we are getting so many mixed signals about what makes a woman beautiful. Unfortunately, women’s bodies are now in the middle of a political debate. The men in power, including our President, speak about women as if we are nothing more than our bodies. This week, let’s break Beauty down into the myth that it is. Let’s take back the conversation and do something that brings the power back in our hands!

Do you find yourself living in a way that someone else thinks you should? Does this fly in the face of the way you would actually live, without this kind of influence? If so, you're not alone and you will really gain a lot from today's show, which is all about how women can- and really need to- start living life by our own rules, in every aspect. It's about throwing off the 'shoulds' and learning to live your life in the way that you would choose to. Listen in today, as Alex helps you to discover your own way forward.

 

Today, Alex shares a very heartfelt and personal story about her experience with a client, Michelle. They were talking about Michelle's body, which in her private session with Alex, Michelle described as being built like a brick sh*t house. This prompted Alex to point out to her that the words that we use really do have power. When we use phrases and words to describe ourselves, those words and phrases actually become our reality and our world and we keep ourselves stuck there. So, it's time to flip these old worlds into something else. You need to learn, when stumbling across old, limiting beliefs, to reconstruct them with love and care, so as not to scare the life out of your brain! Alex cautions you, however, that if you try to make these changes too big, or too fast, your lizard brain could rear up and start fighting you, to keep your old thoughts in place, so you really have to start small, in order to make the changes long lasting

 

The new thought that Michelle agreed to try on in her daily life, was “I am strong, capable and I deserve the self-care that I desire.” Yet, for Alex, after ending the call, something still felt off... Then she realized that it was her own lizard brain, eating into her power and her ego and it had some really nasty things to say about her body, on a very regular basis. Although Alex acknowledges the privileges that she enjoys, being a white woman, relatively thin and quite tall, she still goes through her own struggles and pain with her body, as do all of us, because we've all been raised as women, to be judged by our bodies! So, she began to work on flipping her old beliefs about her body and turning them into manageable, self-loving affirmations. This felt good, but the imperfections became meaner and more difficult to acknowledge. Alex still persevered with taking her power back and she really encourages you to do the same, because it's really necessary and it's worth it! You really do need to rewrite the story around your beliefs about your body- now, and show up in the world centered, graceful, and wise!  

 

Today, Alex will be interviewing Dr. Srini Pillay, a Harvard Neuroscientist and Coach, about his brand new and really inspiring book, Tinker, Dabble, Doodle, Try, which has just been nominated one of the fifty must reads by Coastal Living, for the second time. It's a beautiful exploration of creativity and what we think about being productive and how we're overworking ourselves to get more done, but it's really not working. It's about how our creativity really comes out of a space of spaciousness and doodling, in many ways. Listen in today, to get some of Dr. Pillay's really awesome tools to help you to get unstuck, keep moving forward and live by your own rules.

Ekem has been working in Public Health for twenty years, with a focus on Adolescent and Women's Health and Community Health Centre training directly in schools- even at Alex's son's school. People tend to swarm to her with questions when they find out what she does, but she loves talking about it, so it's great!

 

Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest provider of sex education, reaching a million and a half people per year! They and the schools rely on the parents to be the backup at home and to help the kids to integrate what they are supposedly learning in schools. However, not all kids are getting the same education and this results in people learning so many different aspects and information about sex. 

 

A few days ago, after the Bill Cosby trial had been dismissed, one of the jurors said that because one woman went to his house wearing a top which revealed her bare midriff, it implied consent. Alex nearly lost her mind when she heard that, as she sees that as rape culture at its worst! Rape culture blames the victim for enticing their rapist! This is why parents really need to learn to talk with their children about sex right now! Parents need to teach them that no matter what someone is wearing, you are not allowed to touch them without their consent and that you also need to listen to them during sexual or intimate activities. They need to know that no one has the right to cross your boundaries, abuse you or rape you because you're wearing revealing clothing.  This is why this topic is really so important. Alex points out that when you allow your children to believe that women are to blame for their rape, it leads to people becoming jury members later on, who uphold this sexual culture that makes either women or men who are the victims, blameworthy. Listen in now, to hear the panel discussion and to get some much-needed support around this really important issue.

I think we all have a list. That’s right, a F-It List. This List is not quite a Bucket List, where you check things off that you want to do before you die. Instead, we can use a F-It list to get rid of the things that are weighing you down. This tool uses all the powers of Positive Psychology at our disposal, allowing you to get rid of anything that drains you. 

As women in the modern world, we carry around habits and thoughts attached to shame, kind of like how we carry heavy books in a backpack. What’s in your shame backpack that you are ready to put down? What are the thoughts and habits that are keeping you from a fulfilled and happy life? Are you ready to make a F-It list?

Have you ever heard yourself saying: “I'm kinda clear about what I want, but I keep getting in my own way.” Or “I'm not sure what I want...” Or even “I don't know how I feel- I'm just confused.”? Well, today, Alex talks about the lack of clarity, the confusion and the self-sabotage that all women seem to experience. She attributes this to the fact that we, as women, have all been trained to minimize our thoughts, emotions and even our strengths and talents. Alex points out that we have shut ourselves down, in so many ways and for such a long time, that

Alex points out that we have shut ourselves down, in so many ways and for such a long time, that we have become completely out of practice with connecting with what is true and good. We're so disconnected that even our ability to create what we want and feel the way we'd like to feel has become severely damaged! Our ability to stop harming ourselves with negative thinking or bad eating habits has also been affected because it's all connected! Listen in to find out more.

 

Today, Alex talks about Minimize Me, which she explains, is such a big show topic, that she's turned it into a whole blog series. (You can access the blog on either www.alexandrajamieson.com, or on www.herrulesradio.com) The gist of it is that we're stuffing down our strengths, covering up our quirks and ignoring our truth! Alex hears this, almost daily, from clients and friends and she's definitely experienced this for herself, throughout her life. Listen in today, as Alex gives you some ways to overcome your habit of minimizing your dreams, desires and even your truth!

Do you know what it actually means for women to step into their power? This is really something that needs to be considered when you look at the frightening and  dangerous things that are going on for women in Texas at the moment. The Texas lawmakers are trying to make it even harder for women to have control over their bodies and their lives, by attempting to make it illegal to drive a woman to a safe abortion provider!  

According to a study done by the University of Texas recently, in the six years since Planned Parenthood and other safe abortion providers and women's health clinics there have been de-funded, the death rate in maternal health has doubled. This de-funding has also resulted in the closure of more than eighty clinics, most of which were in rural areas where no alternative care facilities have been provided. This means that in the two years since the cuts were implemented, the remaining health clinics in the state of Texas are only able to serve half the women who were being taken care of before.  

Alex points out that de-funding Planned Parenthood and making safe abortions harder to obtain does not stop abortion. It only stops safe abortion. This is why Alex refers to woman's health as a revolution. It's a battle being waged every day and women's lives are at risk! This is what prompted her to give a talk at The Women's Empowerment Expo in Washington DC on the Memorial Day weekend. Listen in today, as Alex gives you a brief overview of the talk that she gave at the Expo, called The Foundations of Women's Power.

In the next couple of weeks, I will be launching a Patreon campaign for Her Rules Radio. There will be different levels of support, but we have lots of exciting bonuses coming your way!

 

Years ago in college, I investigated some women’s health clinics for a newspaper article and found several fake ones, who only provided misinformation. Then I went to a Planned Parenthood clinic. Boy, talk about a world of difference in the quality of the information, as well as in the level of respect and dignity with which I was treated! Not judgment, no pressure, just the facts!

 

There is a disturbing trend going on right now, where many states are trying ban abortion - a further assault on women’s health in our country! Today is a show that isn’t about politics. It’s about women and their health. It’s about being able to make choices about your health and family that are in the best interests of your family. Women of color are disproportionately affected by abortion, further keeping many families trapped in poverty.

 

This week’s interview is with Dr. Willie Parker, the author of Life’s Work - A Moral Argument for Choice. He grew up in a Christian home in the deep South. As a Doctor, he realized that in order to show true Biblical compassion to women, he needed to provide abortion services. His journey has been a transformative one, as he eventually left his Obstetrics practice and gave up his penthouse in Hawaii, to begin life in the deep South as an itinerant abortion provider traveling between Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. Listen to his amazing interview as he beautifully lays out the moral case for compassion through choice.

What if you knew that your true confidence and power are actually buried in the very parts of you that you have disowned? Today, Alex talks about the insanity in the world that causes you to hide parts of yourself, in order to be acceptable. She points out that this ensures that you remain unfulfilled, miserable and at war with yourself. She explains that there is a path to the woman you crave to become. It's unruly, messy and a bit naughty, and it asks you to trust the parts of you that you have previously disowned and warred against. This is the path of The Feminine Genius.

Either way, you'll gain a lot from this show, as it's all about helping you to find the best version of you. Alex knows that it can be really tough to find your truth in this culture of ours. We all tend to copy others in what they do and sometimes even in their mannerisms, so it becomes pretty hard at times to get clear on what feels right (or wrong) for us. Alex has found that exploring what lights you up and makes you laugh is a really great way to discover who you are, particularly if you're feeling stuck, so today, she invites you to pursue this and find out.

Did you know that playing takes you out of your head and encourages your body to recover? Would you like to know about the science behind all of that? Then join Alex today as she starts the show with the story of how she helped a client, who was struggling with Chronic Overload Stress, to become more playful and resultantly more relaxed and successful in her life.

Today's guest is Dr. Leslie Tidwell, a board certified OB.Gyn and the creator of Savvy Lady Patient.com.

She's created a way for women to have a better, more educated, personalized experience when they go to the doctor. Listen in today, as she talks to Alex about how any woman can get ready for her next appointment so that she feels strong and confident and armed with the correct information.

 

Today, Leslie talks to Alex about:

 

  • Her website and service, Savvy Lady Patient.com- what it is and why she created it.
  • How women are often blown off by doctors (both male and female) and told that they're being overly emotional, or even hysterical.
  • How the paternalistic attitude revealed it to herself to her when she went into private practice and was even directed towards her at times when conferring with male doctors.
  • How being a female doctor and a woman of color influenced how people viewed her as an authority.
  • The appalling behavior that she has experienced from some male surgeons.
  • The reasons that women seek Leslie's help through Savvy Lady Patient.com.
  • About the Appointment Prep that she offers to women and how that helps and empowers them when they go in to see the doctor.
  • Some tips for you, as a woman, to be better prepared when going to see a doctor.

If you would love to break the shackles of yo-yo dieting once and for all, or to finally put an end to your diet spiral, you will really gain a lot from today's show, with Alex's super smart guest, Isabel Foxen Duke, a Health Coach who graduated with Alex, from the Institute For  Integrative Nutrition. Listen in today and find out about Isabel's outlook on body positivity and how you too can develop a positive outlook towards your own body image.

Isabel was put on her first diet at around three years of age, by her pediatrician, who clearly had no idea how it would affect her later in her life. That was the beginning of what would become a life long obsession for her. When Alex met Isabel, she was just kicking off with her program, Stop Fighting Food. Now, Isabel helps women to stop feeling crazy around food, which is how she felt for most of her life, until she began to learn many things that are not taught conventionally, about emotional and binge eating and the ways that they affect women.

Isabel explains that the sad reality of many dieters lives is that with any rigid attempt to control your body, it will only be a matter of time before you violently lose control and start eating anything that you can get your hands on. She vividly describes the cycle of determination to diet, followed by 'losing it' and falling off the wagon

On today's show, she talks about how it felt for her, when she fell off the wagon and the about the physical and emotional pain one experiences as a result of yo-yo dieting. She also discusses how landing up in treatment for Binge Eating Disorder was the beginning of her journey towards learning what it means to have a  health-full and balanced relationship with food and how this learning involved un-learning much of what she had been conditioned with, through being so engaged with the diet industry for so many years.  Listen in and find out more.

Welcome to Her Rules Radio - where we shake off the old rules and do what works for us! So, I turned 42 this week! To celebrate, we played hooky and kept my son out of school and went and had brunch and went to the planetarium, and just spent the entire day together! We had the best time together and it really made me realize the importance of play in our lives. We need more fun and play in our lives.

 

Listen as Alex shares a story about her client Erin, and how they had to work on play. Because of a rough upbringing, she found that she lived a virtually joyless life. Alex shares the advice she gave Erin to help her incorporate play and fun into her life!  Without enough play, everything “health wise” in our lives is out of whack. We need to have fun. The amount that you allow yourself to play will return huge dividends to your health and well-being.

 

In this episode, Alex explains what play really is and all of the health benefits that we can enjoy. You have to take action to change habits and play helps you take action. You can incorporate play into your personal life! Alex keeps a hula hoop, a mini-trampoline, and pink roller skates around her house so she can easily grab them for a play session. It’s healthy to be playful and it’s the key to health and happiness. Play can help you actually like your body. When you like yourself, you actually treat yourself better! Keep some toys around and use the often. Playful people can transform any environment to make it more enjoyable. We all want to be around playful people, and then we are inspired to be playful too!

Mal Harrison is a sexologist passionate about freeing people from shame, stigma, and fear. She wants to live in a world where fluidity, compassion, and deep human connection collide, and where every human is cliterate. In 2011 she became resident sexologist and advice columnist, “Ms. M.” for the Museum of Sex. Her research and subsequent article on the Internal Clitoris went viral, changing the way women understand how their bodies work, and heralding her as a pioneer of clit-feminism. After over 10 years of transforming both individuals and couples through sexual and relationship development, as well as receiving thousands of Dear Ms. M. emails to her advice column, she knew more had to be done. In 2016, she founded the Center for Erotic Intelligence to broaden our collective understanding of human sexuality and human connection.

Welcome back to Her Rules Radio! Today I’m talking with Melanie VanOrden! She is a community organizer of ex-Mormons in New York City. We are going to be talking about the effects of religion on the relationship with our female bodies. We will be talking about purity, culture, the benevolent patriarchy and what that is! 

Some of you have been emailing me and pinging me on Facebook etc. You have been asking me about the manifesto that I read in the first episode of the show. Guess what? We are making it! It’s going to be free as a download so you can print it out or as a screensaver. It has incredibly inspiring, motivating sayings that are really driven from the show and what we are all about. Playful women are happy women and happy women are healthy women. 

We know it’s true because we are the women that make a difference in the world. We are rulers of our own lives! If you are here listening, you are a ruler. Very soon in the next couple of weeks, we are going to be having new supplement bundles for women who want to wake up happy, get back in track in the afternoons in our busy lives and for women who have a peaceful night time ritual. We will also be opening up vitality mentor applications soon! This is my small group, 20 women that meets in person and virtually for 9 months. My version of a mastermind. You get one on one time with me and be part of an incredible group.

Have you ever wondered how women really compare to men, when it comes to running a successful business? On today's show, Alex talks about how women in business tend to be under-valued, yet over over-perform. She quotes Mr. Wonderful, Kevin O'Leary from Shark Tank, who substantiates this. She gives statistics to demonstrate how more and more women, across the social spectrum in the USA, own businesses today and how this number has dramatically increased since 2007. Alex points out that when women make more money, they're more in control of their lives, health, and choices and due to this, everyone around them benefits.

The guest on today's show is a great example of this. She is Ariel Hyatt, who as a 24-year-old entrepreneur twenty years ago, founded Cyber PR. About ten years ago, Ariel, a seasoned speaker who promotes music groups and bands, as well as advising clients on crowd funding campaigns, decided to put her money where her mouth is and crowd fund a campaign of her own. She wrote a book that documents the lessons learned and the stress endured during her campaign, which raised over $60 000. Ariel's book, Crowd Start, is a step by step and a day by day guide on how to launch a crowd funding campaign. Perhaps you too, through crowd funding, could build something beautiful and put money together that could help you, your family and your whole community.

A few days ago I was attacked by a Doctor on my Facebook feed. He suggested that his profession was more credible than mine because he had “data”. The medical profession has a weakness and it is terrible at promoting health and self-love. 

The medical profession draws broad conclusions, and many times their conclusions are not what everyday people experience. My passion is all about helping you test and find what works for you. We need to know so many things about our bodies and how it reacts and responds to stress and life in general. I teach The Cravings Cleanse as part of helping you understand what works with your body. Go to cravingscleanse.com and find a new way to get intuitive and personal data about yourself.

Today we are talking about a different kind of love. Terri Cole is today’s guest. She’s the Founder of The Real Love Revolution. She’s a Psychotherapist and has worked with high-profile celebrities, CEO’s and thousands of people each week through her Hello Freedom Podcast.

Have you tried all sorts of weight loss plans, with little or no results? Would you love to find a permanent way to keep yourself from gaining unnecessary weight? If so, join Alexandra Jamieson, host of Her Rules Radio, as she explains how you can add the Five Missing Pieces to your diet, so that you can lose weight without stress and keep it off.

Today, Alex shares her own painful journey of transformation, which started six years ago with the shattering of her celebrity marriage. In her raw and vulnerable state, she began craving, then eating meat again, after being a 'professional vegan' for more than ten years. This forced her to dig deeply into herself and to discover that she had both grit and grace, even amidst turmoil. She found that she had a tribe and this helped her to believe in herself once more. She has subsequently been playing life by her own rules. She considers herself a Divine Work in Progress and she urges you to see yourself in the same way.
