In this bonus episode of Thrive Bites, I review the book This Is Your Brain On Food. Listen here! Pick up your copy on August 4th, 2020, wherever books are sold.

From the publisher, "Did you know that blueberries can help you cope with the aftereffects of trauma? That salami can cause depression, or that boosting Vitamin D intake can help treat anxiety?

 
When it comes to diet, most people's concerns involve weight loss, fitness, cardiac health, and longevity. But what we eat affects more than our bodies; it also affects our brains. And recent studies have shown that diet can have a profound impact on mental health conditions ranging from ADHD to depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, OCD, dementia and beyond.
 
A triple threat in the food space, Dr. Uma Naidoo is a board-certified psychiatrist, nutrition specialist, and professionally trained chef. In This Is Your Brain on Food, she draws on cutting-edge research to explain the many ways in which food contributes to our mental health, and shows how a sound diet can help treat and prevent a wide range of psychological and cognitive health issues.
 
Packed with fascinating science, actionable nutritional recommendations, and delicious, brain-healthy recipes, This Is Your Brain on Food is the go-to guide to optimizing your mental health with food."

In this episode of Thrive Bites, I sit down with Michelle and discuss how fitness came into her life and how she uses that as a tool for chronic pain and also finding balance in our lives!

"I was born and raised in Houston, TX, and graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 2002 with a BA in Biology and a minor in Music. I earned my MD at the McGovern Medical School (UT Houston) and matched into anesthesiology residency at UTMB in Galveston. After graduating from residency, I moved to San Antonio, TX where I completed my fellowship in interventional pain management at UTHSC-San Antonio. I moved back to Houston in 2012 and began practicing pain management in the Greater Houston area.

After practicing pain management for several years, I noticed that my patients were still suffering, and I knew that there must be a way to help my patients lead to higher-quality lives. I consider myself an avid yogi since 2012 and had the opportunity to complete my 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2014 and restorative yoga certification in 2015. After doing some searching, I stumbled upon integrative medicine and found a way to meld the two worlds of yoga and medicine together. I completed the integrative medicine fellowship with the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (founded by Dr. Andrew Weil) in the fall of 2018. I am currently in the process of completing a health coaching program through the National Society of Health Coaches.

I am a part of Texas Orthopedic and Sports Medicine with 2 locations in North Houston - Tomball and The Woodlands, where I offer my patients a variety of modalities to manage their pain."

On this season-ending episode of Thrive Bites, I sit down with Margaux Alvarez about her personal journey before being a Crossfit Athlete and Competitor and a winemaker. Let's get behind the scenes of her slogan, "Work Hard, Wine Down."

With seven CrossFit Games appearances already under her belt as an individual competitor, Margaux Alvarez shifted her focus to the Team Competition in 2019, joining Invictus X and qualifying via the Granite Games. At 34, she has become one of the true ambassadors of the sport and a source of inspiration to countless athletes, both through her own performances and her passionate efforts as a coach, affiliate owner, and mentor.

Margaux spent much of her childhood in Montana, where she gained her love for almost any kind of athletic endeavor—from swimming and volleyball to ballet, horseback riding, and Taekwondo. She was turned on to CrossFit while working as a trainer in the Bay Area in 2011 and took to it immediately. Since then, Alvarez spent years on the CFHQ Seminar Staff, and in 2018, made headlines by winning the CrossFit South Regional at age 33. From her current home base in Las Vegas, she’s also found a successful second career as a winemaker.
