Description

Welcome to the Freely Rooted podcast! Joining you are your hosts Kori Meloy + Fallon Lee. We are passionate about helping women reclaim their metabolisms, restore their youthful vitality, & rediscover God’s original design for motherhood + wellness. Health & nutrition have become too dogmatic and complicated. After putting our own chronic diseases & autoimmune conditions into remission without restrictive diets or medication, we set out to help others simplify wellness by getting back to the roots of our biological rhythms while encouraging you to live freely along the way.

Are You Running On Stress Hormones?

Welcome back to the podcast! We are kicking off season 2 by talking all things stress hormones. Most of us are probably familiar with the all-too-popular "adrenal fatigue" diagnosis. What if there was a bigger picture to this story? If we zoom out from that acute focus on the body, we can see that there is a whole-body, systemic issue that's taking place. In this episode, we discuss how to support your system as a whole, break out of the "fight or flight" state, rebalance your hormones, and get back to the state of rest & digest

Join us as we sit down & discuss the following:

  • Life updates & announcements
  • What is stress?
  • Simplifying the adrenals & stress hormones
  • The relationship between the adrenals & the thyroid/metabolism
  • The bigger picture of "adrenal fatigue"

  • How our fast-paced culture enables a stress hormone addiction
  • 3 steps to jumping off the stress hormone ride
  • "Withdrawal" symptoms from coming out of "fight or flight"
  • The balance of owning your past choices while trusting the present process

Breaking Down Popular Diets
4042

For the season 1 finale, we are going out with a bang & discussing POPULAR DIETS! We polled our audience to see which diets you guys wanted to hear about most, and the winners were Paleo, AIP, Keto, Whole30, and Intermittent Fasting. Our heart behind this episode is to paint the whole picture when it comes to these restrictive diets, and the whole picture includes the fact that going on one of these diets can leave you more depleted & further into dysfunction than where you were before you began. They do not address the root cause of symptoms, and they can also trigger orthorexic thoughts, food fears, & MORE food sensitivities. On this episode, we will break down each of the 5 diets by what they get right, what they get wrong, the missing minerals & nutrients, & why they feel "good" at first. Lastly, we're here to share that there IS a different way on your health pursuit, and one that supports your body on the most basic physiological level.

Join us as we sit down & discuss the following:

  • Why restrictive diets don't address the root cause of symptoms
  • How restrictive diets can trigger orthorexia & food fear
  • Food sensitivities - the inaccuracy of popular tests, & what we recommend instead 
  • The Paleo diet
  • The AIP diet
  • The Keto diet
  • The Whole30 diet
  • Intermittent fasting
  • A bonus secret diet

PCOS to Pregnant | Healing Infertility
3115

It's estimated that 1 in 8 couples are struggling with infertility, and it's clear that the mainstream health + wellness approach to infertility is not identifying & addressing the issue at it's root. In this episode, we sit down with Ashlee Rowland, who spent 4 years trying ALL the popular "health" diets [fasting, keto, paleo, AIP... you name it - she's tried it]. The end result was further depletion, deeper imbalances, & even a PCOS diagnosis. By God's grace, a friend introduced her to the idea of her minerals & metabolism. After only 2 months of working to restore her metabolism & all that had been depleted from birth control + fad diets, Ashlee healed her infertility & got pregnant with her baby boy! She has since developed an online course called Bare Naked Hormones, which provides her own personal blueprints to turn down the noise of the wellness world & balance hormones holistically.

Join us as we sit down & discuss the following:

  • Ashlee’s health story & how she regressed into hormonal imbalance, PCOS, & infertility while doing all the “right” things
  • How Ashlee learned that her metabolism was the root of all her health issues
  • Ashlee’s infertility journey & why she realized she needed to stop trying to get pregnant while healing
  • The failure of mainstream health + wellness to address infertility at its root
  • The foundational roots of fertility
  • Ashlee’s take on the top 3 contributors to infertility
  • When to seek 1-1 support & testing on an fertility journey
  • Which tests are actually helpful & which ones aren’t
  • The truth about clomid, metformin, & fertility interventions
  • Other audience Q&A

Respectful Parenting + Simplifying Kids Nutrition

In this episode, we interviewed the hilarious & beautiful Kaitlyn Sapp to merge two of our favorite topics: respectful parenting + nourishment. These topics are so important to join together, because they have everything to do with each other! Nourishing our children isn't just about cooking "healthy foods" - it's about modeling what we want to see in our children, listening to & validating their communication, honoring their autonomy, & letting go of the desire to obsessively control their behavior + actions. Respecting our children as whole beings from birth is the foundation we need to lay to be able to simplify their nutrition with ease, nourish their minds + bodies, & cultivate peaceful mealtimes.

Join us as we sit down & discuss the following:

  • Respectful parenting vs modern mainstream parenting
  • Our personal stories discovering & implementing respectful parenting
  • The mainstream approach to kids nutrition
  • How respectful parenting laid the foundation for our approach to kids nutrition
  • Kait’s top tips for restoring simplicity + peace to approaching food with your kids

Join us as we sit down & discuss the following:

  • Why this topic is especially important to us, & our personal experiences with libido
  • The definition of libido
  • The top 5 suppressors of libido
