Effects of Childhood Trauma on Women's Health With Nikki Gratrix

Nikki Gratrix is our second guest on Mental Health Month and we're talking about the effect of childhood trauma on women's health. This is a great under-talked about epidemic that affects many people for years. And these childhood traumas could go from the very severe to the much less severe. But the good thing is that we can reverse them with interventions we can employ today. So this is a very interesting talk packed with facts and suggestions.

Nikki is an amazing speaker who has done a lot of research into the connection between childhood trauma and illness. She studied and was working in banking, economics & finance before moving to the health industry. She wanted to do something with more meaning and to help people directly.

Nikki trained and worked as a Clinical Nutritionist in the UK, and during this time she became more of a mind-body expert rather than just looking at nutrition and functional nutrition.

How to Choose the Right Work Out with Zlata Sushchik

Women's-Wellness-Zlata-Sushchik.png

You can almost guess by her name that Zlata Sushchik has an interesting story.  Immigrating from Russia to Alaska as a teen, and new to the English language, she stumbled into a saving grace when a friend convinced her to join a bodybuilding competition.

She went on the win many titles, and learned a lot about nutrition, fitness and motivation along the way.  She now runs an online coaching business called SexyFit which has helped many women lose weight and feel great in a healthy way.

You can also check out her podcast, where I was a guest on episode #30.

I consider myself a half-way fit person, but I know very little about the best ways to work out in comparison to Zlata.  She shares in this interview a comparison of different work out methods, and some advanced ways to approach your gym work out.

She also shares her views on food, which include not being too rigid, eating whole foods, and avoiding scammy weight loss products.  She has also learned that in order to really get fit and lose weight, you need to identify your 'big why' to keep yourself motivated.

Having burned out her adrenals in the early years of her competition days, she had to cut back on exercise a lot to recover.  So she is well versed in meeting women where they are, and choosing the right exercise for each stage.

I really enjoyed this interview with Zlata, and I know you will too!  Hey, if you aren't yet subscribed, check it out on iTunes or most podcast players.
