041 Chew on this | Meliors Simms

I’m really trying to set people up to keep their teeth for life
— Meliors Simms -

When someone calls themselves a Holistic Tooth Fairy there’s a curiosity that sparks in me because we don’t often talk about our teeth in relationship to our health.  As a consumer educator Meliors Simms is bringing this conversation mainstream.  Meliors talks with such passion about healing her own teeth using a systemic approach and what is really interesting to me is that a number of other ailments cleared up too.  As she says the “mouth is the gateway to the body” and I concur that this is also to your wellbeing.

Value Quotes 

“Shifting my priority for my health from losing weight to healing my teeth”

“It’s been such a profound thing in my life that not just my physical wellbeing has changed but my emotional wellbeing, my ability to relate to people and to be visible in the world, that has all changed”

“What happens when we heal the gums and the teeth is that we also simultaneously increase the bodies resistance to bacteria and we are minimising the flow of bacteria from our mouth”

“I wish that when I first started having things go wrong with my mouth that I had someone who could point me in the right direction and set me off on a different path”

“I’m really trying to set people up to keep their teeth for life”

037 Bio-hacking your way to health | Dr Jamie Koonce

Whatever you might be going through with your health right now you probably have more control over it than you think
— Dr Jamie Koonce -

Good for us that Dr Jamie Koonce is a self-professed nerd from playground days.  Who would have thought that a childhood intuition to change her diet to prevent migraines would put her on a path to learning and discovering the role of epigenetics and the influence on our health and appearance.  Her passion for learning has not stopped and she now teaches people like you and I how to bio-hack our way to health.  You will be pleased to know that Jamie dispels the belief that there is ONE diet or nutrition protocol for everyone!

Inspire yourself with these essential insights from Dr Jamie Koonce

Dr Jamie Koonce Living Fabulously with Bev

We spoke about 

  • Jamie’s curiosity with the way the body worked from a young age

  • Having more control over our health than we think

  • The influence of epigenetics on our health and appearance

  • The role of genetic inheritance, lifestyle and environmental inputs

  • Understanding the effect of your genetics in relationship to your own diet and nutrition

  • Never too late to make changes that will improve your health and wellbeing

  • Determining and interpreting your genetic profile

  • Bio-hacking School

  • Why assessing how you’re doing with your health regularly is so important

Value Quotes 

”I was fascinated by the body, how you could change the way that you feel, the way that you look, everything about the body just by different environmental inputs”

“It seems a lot of people don’t make that connection even after they get very sick. They feel like they have no control and it’s just something that happened to them. They really do have control and I think that’s empowering to know.”

“Whatever you might be going through with your health right now you probably have more control over it than you think”

“You can turn off or turn on a gene for better or for worse depending on the environmental inputs”

“I’ve been studying this for several years and have found some very interesting things about how you can change your diet and your lifestyle to basically cause these epigenetic changes that are very desirable and to prevent the changes that are not”

“Understanding your own genetics helps you understand why none of these diet books work for everyone”

“Never settle for ‘this is just the way things are’ because it doesn’t have to be that way”

“Why would you settle for a mediocre life or mediocre health when you can have vitality and really feel amazing and do amazing things because you feel amazing”

My online course Sleeping Fabulously is a four week course where I take troubled sleepers through the process of understanding their sleep habits, to creating new habits that let them sleep soundly through the night.

You know how passionate I am about this subject and you know that it’s time for me to take my sleep message to more people.

Can I ask you to do something?

Would you be willing to be my Champion and champion the cause of better health and sleep with me?

What if, together, we could change ONE person’s life for the better? What if we could start more conversations about the topic of well-rested living? What if we could be...well, be rebels… together?

I hope so!
