Published on: 19th October, 2022

What the hell is functional medicine?

Why is everyone talking about how evil wheat and corn are, and what does that have to do with leaky gut?

That’s what we’re going to discuss today, but just before we do that I would like to invite you to invite others to rate the show on Apple or Spotify.

Today we are chatting with my doctor and extraordinary human, Dr. Jeffrey Kalins.

After completing undergraduate school he finished one year of medical school in Paris but quickly realized that wasn’t how he thought healthcare should be provided. Unless under emergency conditions it never made sense to him to take out body parts and give someone toxic chemicals which we call ‘drugs’ to deal with symptoms. He always had an inquisitive mind, asking why, so he embarked on a search to find the profession that would prepare him to deliver health care, and not sickness care. He found that in chiropractic and applied kinesiology which opened a whole new world that he shares with us today.

If there is a woman you know who is struggling with period pain, the foundation of how I healed myself began with reading Womancode & In The Flo by Alisa Vitti.

Then, for an easy-to-understand one-stop shop of this cycle syncing methodology with meal plans, explanations, and all the works, I highly highly recommend The Period Liberation Protocol by Chef Bai. No matter what point you're at in your healing, the recipes, meal plans and detox methods are invaluable. I did it when I was already healed!

About the Podcast

Face Your Shit, Heal Yourself
Healing Endometriosis, hormone health & transforming pain to power
How to heal yourself by looking at the things no one (including you) really wants you to see. We discuss female cycle syncing, hormonal nutrition, functional medicine, Ayurveda, Taoist Healing Love, Reiki, Ovarian Kung Fu, spirituality, sexuality & mental health as well as the inconvenient truths of our modern health care system that keep these modalities hidden & falsely marketed so we’re left wondering why the hell no one knows about this.

My name is Meredith Ochoa and I’m another f*#%ing artist, with a mission. My mission is to show others how to face their pain and see themselves for who they really are. I developed this mission from facing my own debilitating pain every month dealing with Endometriosis for over 17 years. After surgery, crossing over to the other side, and dying from the excruciating pain one too many times, I began to unravel all of the medical lies I had been told and educated myself on how women’s hormone’s actually work and I healed myself. I remember the first day I felt freedom, I could feel the shackles literally just fall off as I got present to the fact that I had minimal to no pain in my life with my intimacy, sex, and every month with my cycle.

What I learned through my experience is that all healing starts with being authentic (men AND women), which is why I encourage others to face all of their shit. And of course, I made (and continue to make) an ongoing art series about it! Every Phase–colorfully illustrating the phases of the female cycle infradian rhythm clock.

Even though I was lied to for years by countless doctors promoting big pharma, I was able to find experts who helped me achieve what I thought was impossible. I'm using this space to introduce some of them as well as these practices to you.

Profile picture for Meredith Ochoa

Meredith Ochoa

A true explorer and creative, Atlanta artist Meredith Ochoa began her visual arts journey in 2006 at 17 years old, after being a ballerina for 14 years, coming out of an eating disorder, and becoming fascinated with light and shadow– how one can only see the light because of the shadow and vice versa. This contrast showed up not only in her photography but in her life.

She started making her own pinhole cameras and began exploring the alchemy of the darkroom, so when she received a miraculous scholarship to SCAD, she was pretty upset about the digital 'takeover' within the photo world.

She decided to make a 'mockery' of digital photography--turning a scanner into a sort of 'large format' camera. This became an entire practice & technique within itself, and became the scanning process that she is known for today. The subject becomes the "negative" describing the subject digitally with a flattened focal plane.

This technique is depicted throughout her work and was the artistic beginning of her realization that all healing starts with being authentic. She describes her work with the statement…

Through my art I am healed, and I heal others.
