#097 Plantar Fasciitis

A listener asks if Daphnie has tips for cardio you can do with Plantar Fasciitis, and we take a deep dive into this super common, and super debilitating, foot problem. What IS your plantar fascia anyway? Is there anyway to stop it from itis-ing? And once you’ve got it, how can you get your sweat on without hurting yourself? We’ve got answers (Daphnie always has answers.)

#037 Acupuncture with Sara Vaccariello

What is the deal with acupuncture? Daphnie grew up with it, but Joanna has always been a little skeptical. In this episode, guest Sara Vaccariello of Avalon Acupuncture helps us understand what acupuncture is, how it works, and why it can be helpful even if you don’t believe in “qi”. Joanna, Sara, and Daphnie also discuss how acupuncture is being used in hospitals and how people are working to make it more accessible to normal people.

#020 Recovering From Injuries

So, you’re injured. What do you do now? Daphnie takes us through what to do for ourselves in the first 48 hours, when you should see your doctor, and what that doctor might tell you. Joanna talks about what to look for in a physical therapist (and what makes a bad one) and Daphnie makes the case for chiropractors and acupuncture. Our message: don’t be afraid to get help! Feeling good is worth a bit of your time, focus, and money. Plus, Daphnie does her best to pick out a Best Choice at Subway.
