Ask Dr. Bunny. First time Mother at 41? Elana Daley, guest


Elana Daley joins Dr. Bunny to discuss how becoming a mother at 41 changed her life.  She was making a 6 figure income, she had been told by doctors that she couldn’t get pregnant, and then…   Well, as they say, “When man makes plans, God looks down & laughs” :-).

Tune in and listen as Elana shares honestly about how she felt about this huge, life-changing event, homeschooling and more!

About Elana Daley:  Re-invent, invigorate, and passionately recreate who I am. That’s what Arbonne is doing for me. Have you ever met someone who’s energy is contagious? The entire company is filled with men and women with passion and energy.

“Career Woman gone Mom” is the name of a book I started when I entered motherhood for the first time. I had a true identity crisis. It was difficult to shift from corporate to full time motherhood. I had no idea what would come, and I fell in love with my family. Upon realizing that I did not want to return to corporate life but remain a stay at home mom, I also found that I missed having my own career.

I did not marry until I was over 40 and had my only child late. Before marriage I had started a successful training and coaching company and then stepped into our family business to help my husband while I stayed home raising our son. The work was not fulfilling. I wanted more.   I also knew that returning to coaching and training would require me to travel and I did not want to leave my family.

I attended a Healthy Happy Hour at the insistence of my neighbor. I knew it was about healthy products and I had been invited to other nutritional events with poor quality ingredients. With reluctance I attended. I have many food allergies, so I was cautious. Upon being introduced to the protein shakes, I immediately read the ingredient labels. Then I began reading all the product labels for the clean eating program and tasting each product. I reviewed the details of the 30 Days to Healthy Living program. It followed everything that my doctor of 24 years prior had advised me about eating healthy and training clean. Because of many food allergies, I was still skeptical and thought, “I”ll give it a try”. Being the discount queen, I signed up as a consultant to get the best price and bought the 30 Days To Healthy Living Set and the RE9 skin care line.

My first Clean Eating Challenge went well, but I did not give up sweets. My coach, Tracy Schuetz told me, “if you’re going to do this, do it right and go all the way”. So I started the Clean Eating Challenge again and gave up sweets. I knew I could not make it alone so I invited 3 girlfriends to do it with me. They became my accountability team. My first month I lost very little weight but I lost 1 1/2 inches in my waist, and 1 inch in my hips! As I made eating clean a priority, I realized that this was about getting healthy. I dropped from size 10 to size 6 in two short months. As I began to share my experience, more and more friends wanted results like mine.

The rest is history. I have had great results from the 30 Days to Healthy Living program. I have more energy, my memory is spot on, and I am more alert. I get compliments from strangers on my skin and I tell them about the RE9 skincare line. All I do is share my enthusiasm, my love of the products and most of all my results. It’s a blast reuniting with friends, helping them get results, and growing a business that I believe in.   I never thought I would be in network marketing. It’s hard not to share when I feel so passionately and believe in the products and philosophy of Arbonne. Join me in building your business with Arbonne.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Is there help for Perimenopause symptoms? Dr. Zoe Wells, guest

Dr. ZoeDr. Zoe Wells, licensed naturopathic doctor, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss perimenopause and her book Women’s Transformational Journey – 5 Steps to Creating Joy and Balance in Perimenopause. 

Tune in and learn more about the options perimenopausal women have for feeling better, Dr. Zoe’s opinion on bioidentical hormones and the different types of therapies that are available to help balance and support women during this very special time of life.  A fascinating and informative interview!

About Dr. Zoe’s book: Women’s Transformational Journey – 5 Steps to Creating Joy and Balance in Perimenopause:

A woman’s life is full – full to the top and overflowing. When a woman feels out of balance it stops her from enjoying the flow of her life and robs her of the joy of living. Every day I see women in my medical practice who want help with low energy, sleep problems, and mood swings. They are journeying through the complex and challenging stage of perimenopause, and they want off the hormone rollercoaster. Each stage of a woman’s life brings new challenges and new discoveries. Our bodies help us to maneuver through these stages, and our hormones create the physiological shift to push us to evolve and grow our body, mind, and spirit.

Have you yourself had any of these experiences?
• Feeling consumed and controlled by your emotions and not knowing where they come from or what to do with them
• Feeling like you’re riding the hormone rollercoaster each month and wanting to get off
• Not being able to stay focused on your goal
• Being so tired you can’t imagine having the energy to do something new or different even though you know you need to break out of the rut
• Sensing changes in your body but not knowing what to do about them – mood changes, sleep problems, new PMS symptoms and an inability to handle family or work demands that you juggled successfully before

I’ve worked with so many women that have these challenges. They may come in to my practice for hot flashes and sleep problems but as we talk, they speak of brains that won’t shut off, persistent nagging thoughts and worries, racing hearts, an undercurrent that something is wrong but they can’t figure it out and they’re scared.
Women are intelligent. They know when something is up, but taking the next step to stop and listen can feel overwhelming.
I understand these issues from the perspectives of the thousands of women I have worked with in my natural medicine private practice.

I wish to share with you much of what I’ve learned about women.
• How to be happy and feel good
• How to enjoy your body, feel vital and be able to do the things you really want to do
• How to show up for your life and be who you really want to be
• How to support and nourish this beautiful vehicle of the body – the house of our emotions, mind and soul
• How to be there for yourself and commit to yourself before everyone else
• How to hold yourself when you hurt and stay by your own side even when it seems that no one else will

With these tools you’ll be unstoppable, the irresistible you that you dream of being!

About Elise Hicks:

Elise has been a practicing astrologer and metaphysician since her father’s gift of an astrology reading for her eighteenth birthday.  What was truly special about this gift is the fact that he had been given only six months to live when she was just twelve years old. 

His healing journey became the white rabbit event that triggered much discovery for both of them.  She often refers to her Dad as her first guru.   Now, some 40 years later, her studies have evolved into a field that incorporates quantum physics into her astrology practice.   Her goal is to empower her clients into self-discovery and limitless possibility.

Ask Dr. Bunny. What is Lyme Disease? Amanda Rossi, guest.

Amanda_RossiAmanda Rossi joins Dr. Bunny to discuss Lyme disease.  Amanda shares her personal story about her journey & health issues that she experienced that finally led doctors to discover she had Lyme disease.  Amanda talks about how it has affected her life, her serious challenges when her Lyme disease flares up, and what she has done to improve her health.

An extremely interesting & informative interview!

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Lyme disease:

Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is an infectious disease caused by bacteria of the Borrelia type.The most common sign of infection is an expanding area of redness, known as erythema migrans, that begins at the site of a tick bite about a week after it has occurred. The rash is typically neither itchy nor painful. Approximately 25–50% of infected people do not develop a rash. Other early symptoms may include fever, headache and feeling tired. If untreated, symptoms may include loss of the ability to move one or both sides of the face, joint pains, severe headaches with neck stiffness, or heart palpitations, among others. Months to years later, repeated episodes of joint pain and swelling may occur. Occasionally, people develop shooting pains or tingling in their arms and legs. Despite appropriate treatment, about 10 to 20% of people develop joint pains, memory problems, and feel tired for at least six months.

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected ticks of the Ixodes genus. Usually, the tick must be attached for 36 to 48 hours before the bacteria can spread. In North America, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto and Borrelia mayonii are the cause.  In Europe and Asia, the bacteria Borrelia afzelii and Borrelia garinii are also causes of the disease. The disease does not appear to be transmissible between people, by other animals, or through food. Diagnosis is based upon a combination of symptoms, history of tick exposure, and possibly testing for specific antibodies in the blood. Blood tests are often negative in the early stages of the disease. Testing of individual ticks is not typically useful.

Lyme disease is the most common disease spread by ticks in the Northern Hemisphere. It is estimated to affect 300,000 people a year in the United States and 65,000 people a year in Europe.  Infections are most common in the spring and early summer. Lyme disease was diagnosed as a separate condition for the first time in 1975 in Old Lyme, Connecticut. It was originally mistaken for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The bacterium involved was first described in 1981 by Willy Burgdorfer. Chronic symptoms are well described and are known as post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome, although it is often called chronic Lyme disease. Some healthcare providers claim that it is due to ongoing infection; however, this is not believed to be true. A previous vaccine is no longer available. Research is ongoing to develop new vaccines.

Ask Dr. Bunny. What is Lupus? Dora Chavez, guest

Dora_ChavezDora Chavez joins Dr. Bunny to discuss the autoimmune disease, Lupus – what it is, what to do if you get diagnosed with it, and what can be done to treat it. 

Dora shares her personal story of being diagnosed with Lupus, the process of how the doctors finally figured out that it actually was Lupus, and how she sought treatment. 

An interesting and informative interview with a very special woman!

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about Lupus:

Lupus, or Lupus erythematosus, is a disease of the immune system. It is chronic, which means it does not go away. It is an autoimmune disease, where the person’s immune system attacks their own body.

The immune system is partly made up of white blood cells in your body that fight off disease. In lupus, these white blood cells think that the healthy cells of the body around them are diseased, so they end up attacking healthy parts of the body. Lupus can be deadly. It causes swelling and tissue damage, and can attack any part of the body. It most commonly affects the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, kidneys and the brain/nervous system.

Some symptoms include: fatigue, fever with no cause, hair loss, mouth sores, sensitivity to sunlight, a skin disease, and Raynaud’s syndrome. There is treatment for lupus, called immunosuppression, which is medicine that stops the white blood cells from damaging healthy cells for a while. After a while, this medicine wears off, and then the white blood cells go back to hurting healthy parts of the body again. For the disease of lupus, there is no cure that stops the white blood cells from attacking healthy parts of the body forever, but doctors are not giving up on finding a cure.

In the United States alone, there may be 270,000 to 1.5 million (1,500,000) people with lupus. Worldwide, it is estimated (not known for sure, but a good guess) that over 5 million (5,000,000) people living with lupus.   The disease mainly affects young women, but men can be affected as well.
