Episode 7: Antibiotics, Gastrointestinal Issues & long-term Birth Control use – Laura Gluck of FitAsGluck – Dives into her Personal Health Issues & Navigation of the Standard American Healthcare System.

In this episode, Laura Gluck of www.fitasgluck.com shares her personal story with us for the first time. Ironically, it starts just like anyone else & we have a feeling you’ll be able to relate. It begins … when she was born. Healthy. Strong. Without Complications. Until a multitude of childhood infections led to multiple antibiotic prescriptions, resulting digestive issues, ovarian cysts, birth control, gallbladder surgery, hospital admission for sepsis – and so much more.

Laura takes us through her personal medical history and reveals how, what seemed to be a moment in time, was the middle piece of a very complex puzzle. She starts by explaining parts of her history she didn’t realize were so important or so connected to other areas of her health until recently.

Episode 4: Fad Diets, Food Rules & The Peer Pressure clouding your judgement


Let’s dive into the messy and complicated world of FOOD – sorting out fad diets, dogmatic food rules and discussing the different food camps that are currently popular in 2018.

As registered nurses, we’re not nutritionists or dietitians – but we are human. So we’ve had many of our own experiences around food. Plus, we’ve each fallen victim to the peer pressure at different stages of our lives based on our goals & we’ve each had our own personal journey around the discovery of the nutrition hiding in our food & the way of eating that works best for us individually.
