Season 3: Episode 18

Published January 16, 2024

This enlightening episode of the DUTCH Podcast takes listeners on a journey to understand how to manage stress and rejuvenate the body featuring our special guest, Dr. Carrie Jones, ND. Dr. Jones wants to shift the mindset of the high-energy “boss babe era” to help listeners embrace more rest-based lifestyles. She discusses how omnipresent stressors can be in our lives and how the brain is constantly evaluating threats in the world. This “always on” mentality can pose significant impacts on the body’s resources. She also sheds light on the effects of norepinephrine, noting that running on this stress hormone hinders the body's ability to heal and repair at the cellular level. 

This conversation is not just about identifying stress but also about practical, foundational changes for better health management. Key topics include the importance of hydration, sleep, and managing blood sugar, as well as understanding the glymphatic system and the circadian rhythm's role as the master regulator of the body's various rhythms. Dr. Jones explains the nuanced balance of stress and resilience, particularly in relation to exercise, and the potential hormonal shifts when pushing too far. She also highlights the significance of cortisol testing for understanding diurnal rhythms and optimizing patient care plans. Tune in to this groundbreaking discussion on transforming stress management into a tool to repair the body and maintain a resilient, healthy lifestyle.
