Nothing is wrong with you! An interview with Dr. Valerie Rein

July 24th, 2020

Hey gorgeous!

On today’s show, I’d like to share step number one in Getting To Know Yourself, my brand new audio training. That is identifying yourself and how you manage your body’s energy.

Here we go (the link to the full training can be found over at www.doritpalvanov.com/gettoknowyourself)

Enjoy!

Transcript:

You know that the experience of a woman is different from a man’s (being different doesn’t imply inferiority). 

But the fact that women are expected to operate in life and business as a man is absurd! 

Men and women have been created differently for a reason and I want you to live your life embracing this truth and accepting it. 

We’re going to begin by introducing you to two types of women I work with and by the end of it, you’ll self identify which woman you resonate with most.

Why does this matter?

Simplicity.

Isn’t that what we all crave? 

I’ve been in this industry long enough to see how confusing ‘health’ can be.

Especially as women.

Your conditions are merely symptoms of a deeper-rooted issue.

Many of the answers to the conditions you have lay in the framework I’m going to teach you today.

Conditions like:

Hormonal imbalances – heavy, painful, irregular periods.

Emotional and mental instabilities – Brain fog, Moodiness, Overwhelm, Snappy behaviour.

Why do you tend to burn out?

Why do you feel sucked-dry of energy?

Why doesn’t life feel fun anymore?

Why do you feel frustrated and uninspired?

The answers lay in the differences between the two types of women I’ve observed in my practice.

Actually, not so much the type as much as how she operates in the world.

How she uses her body energy to live her life.

Meet Kimberly.

She’s an ambitious go-getter.

She’s confident and experienced in the marketplace and knows how and where to push to see results in her job or business.

A kick-ass businesswoman.

She’s busy and has a demanding job.

She’s the breadwinner in her household.

Often the only woman in a male-dominant workplace – striving, competing – to be seen and heard against all odds.

She’s determined. Hard-working. Relentlessly paving her way to the top.

She’s a professional.

Educated.

Often has multiple degrees under her belt (maybe even a Ph.D.).

She’s incredibly smart, talented, skilled and…. tired.

Actually she’s exhausted.

She secretly wonders what’s the point of it all.

Kimberly feels good at work but unsuccessful at home.

She misses the kids.

She craves to spend more time with them.

Dreams of vacations and time off just to catch up with them.

She has a nanny and a housekeeper, but she misses home.

She wishes to have more time.

When she leaves the house she exits her body.

She isn’t satisfied with her marriage. Her sex life is so-so. It’s good but not great.

Her husband isn’t the man she hoped he’d be.

She often considers separation but knows this will shatter the kids.

Her man isn’t a great husband but is a great dad.

Women like Kimberly tend to come into my practice feeling guilty because seemingly, she has everything.

The career, a family, the house, cars, vacations, a convenient lifestyle…

Still, something isn’t enough.

Women like Kimberly often use birth control pills for most of their lives and when they get off of it, experience their emotions for the first time and don’t know what to do with them.

Kimberly often wonders why her body is so messy? She wants to get her periods under control

She feels afraid, disgusted and even mad at femininity.

She questions herself. Often grumpy.

She has vicious dreams, and spirals down on an emotional roller coaster.

Food gives her a wicked handover.

She feels unstable, unbalanced, wobbly.

She wonders – what is wrong with me?

She never really got to know herself. 

Meet Melissa.

Melissa is a SAHM (or works but not her life’s work).

She’s dedicated her life to her family.

She spends loads of energy trying to please everybody and rarely takes time for herself.

She depends on her husband financially and dreams of financial independence.

Melissa has a vision of starting a blog, or a business she can run from home working part-time hours in between her household responsibilities.

She knows it’s possible, she’d seen other women doing it.

She knows she can do it too.

But for some reason, she never gets to it.

She promised herself to get up early in the morning but never does.

She knows she needs to be consistent, but never has the energy to stick with it.

Her days are hectic with her waking up with the kids and feeling moody.

Sometimes she gets stubborn and doesn’t want to be around anyone (husband and kids included).

She just wants time for herself. Alone. 

Every now and then she has breakdowns and lashes out.

Mental and emotional breakdowns cause her trouble in her marriage and with the kids.

She’s infested with fear, confusion and regret.

She’s stressed about money.

She often wonders when will she be making her own money?

She wants her husband to be proud of her, but instead, he judges her and can’t understand why she’s not coping.

When he gets upset, she gets upset and tends to lose focus.

He spends hours upon hours trying to ‘fix’ and analyze her by acting like her ‘therapist’.

She feels trapped and ‘domesticated’.

She feels like she’s lost herself in the life of motherhood and being a wife.

She doesn’t believe she has the power to break the generational pattern she has been born into.

She feels alone and craves community.

Melissa wants to belong to something bigger than herself and her family.

In terms of health conditions, women like Melissa, complain about conditions like irregular and heavy periods (thyroid and adrenal issues), adult acne, weight gain, bulky arms and back, brain fog, cognitive and mental issues, short-term-memory-loss and emotional eating.

She wonders – what is wrong with me?

So today you’re going to learn three steps on how to understand yourself as a woman so you can become the confident, energized and passionate woman you were destined to be on your own terms. 

This is the foundation to creating a life that works for you instead of against you. This training will help you become a victor instead of a victim of life’s circumstances. You have the power to have anything you want. 

The question isn’t ‘Why’, but ‘Why not’? Or ‘Why me?’ but ‘Why not me?’

This training will be like a powerful coaching session with me, on-demand! 

You know that the experience of a woman is different from a man’s (being different doesn’t imply inferiority). 

But the fact that women are expected to operate in life and business as a man is absurd! 

Men and women have been created differently for a reason and I want you to live your life embracing this truth and accepting it. 

We’re going to begin by introducing you to two types of women I work with and by the end of it, you’ll self identify which woman you resonate with most.

I know your dirty little secret…

July 15th, 2019

Hey mama,

This weekend my 3-year-old drove us crazy.

She wanted to wear four layers of dresses one on top of the other.

This makes her feel beautiful.

What she doesn't understand is that it's too hot and wearing so many layers will make it worse.

She feels stuff but doesn't know yet how to express it.

So there was a lot of screaming and frantic behavior.

I was on the verge of losing my mind.

She was absolutely hysteric.

It was then that a lightbulb went off for me.

I remembered an article I've read a couple of weeks ago about women's health a hundred years ago and that helped me to calm down.

This will blow your mind!

Do you know the real meaning of the word 'hysteria'?

Ready for it?

In Latin, it's 'suffering in the uterus'.

Yup.

You know what that means, right?

That being hysteric is a women's problem.

In other words, being born a woman is a curse.

You know this stigma right?

Men are not hysteric.

Men are perceived to be logical, rational, stable, linear, consistent.

Women, on the other hand, are hysteric.

It's almost like we are doomed to be anxious, illogical, inconsistent, and cray-cray just because we were born female.

I know your dirty little secret.

I know that you live your life on the cusp of losing control of:

your emotions,

your appetite,

your sexuality.

I know that sometimes, you're a hair-trigger away from exploding.

I know that deep inside you quietly believe that… well, you're too much.

I know that very often you feel like you’ve stepped inside the skin of a different person – that you are not being yourself.

I also know that you feel guilty and ashamed about it.

Very similarly to how my daughter felt.

I know that you're asking yourself:

'What's wrong with me?!'

"Why can't I get control of myself?'

I know because I'm a woman too.

I know how it feels to be a woman in a man's world.

To this day, women's health and pain are mostly not understood.

It's like trying to explain to my toddler that wearing four layers of puffy dresses one on top of the other is too hot.

She doesn't get it.

She doesn't care.

All she wants is to feel pretty.

This got me to think.

What if we're approaching women's health issues wrong?

* What if we are not giving women and girls the right tools to take care of themselves?

* What if instead of being logical and rational with my daughter I tried to think like her?

* What if I understood her emotionally instead of sending her the signal that she is hysteric?

So I did.

Wanna know what happened?

She burst in tears.

Gave me a huge hug.

And allowed me to take off the dresses.

She felt like mommy gets her.

What if we don't get ourselves?

What if our very own woman-ness is not yet understood?

What if this is the real reason for our struggles?

Struggles at home.

Struggles at work.

Struggles with relationships.

What would happen if you started understanding yourselves better?

How would this change your:

* health?

* work?

* parenting?

* marriage?

* sex life?

Think about this.

Why is it that to this day when a woman says how she feels, what she wants or what she needs, someone always knows better?

Her doctor, her mom/dad, her teacher, her husband...

What would happen if you've owned your woman-ness more?

How would your life look and feel like if you lived in alignment with your feminine current instead of against it?

What difference would this make to our daughters to think of themselves as 'normal' instead of 'hysteric'? 

This is not wishful thinking.

This is possible.

This is the most sustainable way to live as a woman, wife, and mother.

I have been living in alignment with my feminine current for the past five years and I have personally coached dozens of women through the same process.

What's possible for you when you live in alignment with your feminine current?

* Life won't feel hard anymore.

* You won't be a victim of your body.

* You will be able to carve out time for yourself out of your busy day.

* You will have time for fun and play.

* You will feel more connected to your husband and kids.

Are you ready for some radical self-care? Want to know how it's done?

The Feminine Current Course is where you begin.

In this course I will teach you how to:

* Understand the power of your body

* Use your hormones to your advantage

* Make connections between your six female markers

* Drop the habits you hate, and pick up habits you never thought possible

* Make your own happiness a priority, by taking small steps

Want in?

Click here to see what's included in the course.

Whether if you feel out of alignment emotionally or your body is already manifesting physical symptoms this course if for you!

Remember that you are not doomed for suffering, pain and struggle just because you're a woman.

It's just that you don't yet understand yourself.

Give yourself the gift of alignment.

See you on the other side!

XOXO,

Dorit

Am I Depressed?

July 4th, 2019

Hey mama, 

This week I got an email from a client and in it, she wrote:

'I get these spells of time and I question if I'm depressed.

Seemingly everything is OK.

I have a husband and a daughter. I'm not majorly ill, barely a sinus issue, I have a good life, I have an anniversary and a birthday this week, we're going out tonight and away for the weekend, but nothing really brings me joy right now.

I don't have to feel happiness 24/7 but I should feel something and I just feel numb right now.'

Are you familiar with this feeling?

I know I am. 

More often than I would like I am flooded with low energy, feel very drained and tired.

I don't want to do anything - get ready, go out, be nice, smile or talk. 

All the things that we have to do to 'show up' in our lives, right?

So what should you do?

How to shift this around? 

This is what I cover in today's podcast episode (episode #110). 

 

Hope this is helpful and if you resonated with my tips please share this episode with one mama in your life who needs to hear this right now. 

It takes a village to raise a child AND a mama. 

Do your part, show up for yourself and others. 

Sending you much love and many blessings, 

XOXO,

Dorit

We officially begin on July 8th @ 1pm. 

See you on the other side!! xo, Dorit

 

Hate Seeing Yourself In The Mirror? [ep-108]

June 19th, 2019

Hey mama, 

Meet Linda. 

A 42-year-old wife and mama to two beautiful girls.

An executive at a thriving start-up company. 

She has everything she ever wanted. According to her parents she 'won' at life.

So why does she feel like crap?

She is confused.
She doesn't feel in control of her health.
She doesn't feel like she knows what she's doing. 
She knows that she had neglected herself and her marriage.
She has zero interest in sex (her husband is pissed off about it). 
She's afraid that she's screwing up her kids. 
She's burnt out. 
In other words, she is 'sucked dry'. 

Linda also can't stand seeing herself in the mirror. She hates her body. 
She wishes to be thinner and feels betrayed by her body. 

One thing Linda is sure of is that she is DONE. 

Done suffering. 
Done struggling. 
Done feeling stuck. 
Done feeling like a victim. 
Done complaining and bitching about how bad she feels. 

Linda is ready and willing to listen.

Finally

She had heard me say that today's women suffer because of two factors that drag women down. Until she learns to set herself free from both of those things she will continue to suffer. 

Wanna know what are those factors? Tune into today's podcast episode.

‘Self-care’ is not enough to fix how much moms are burnt out [ep-107]

June 12th, 2019

Hey mama, 

Today on the show I talk about the one topic that is nagging at us, moms, like crazy. Constantly.

Wanna guess what that is?

Work-life balance. 

Oh man. If I could get a dime for every time I've heard a mama complain about this I'd be rich by now. 

On the one hand, we're bombarded with well-meaning advice about how to find balance as a mom. 

On the other, you'll find experts, gurus, authors, creators, coaches, and others we look up to openly say that there is no such thing as balance. In other words, get used to living like a crazy person. 

Hustle/chaos/insanity is a part of the deal. Embrace it. 

I. Don't. Agree. 

Curious why not? Check out today's podcast episode. 

It might change how you view balance, hustle, ambition, and achievement and how to thrive as a woman in the midst of it all. 

Do you agree? Disagree? I wanna know what you think, find me over at Instagram @healthbeginswithmom. 

Sending you much love & healing,

XOXO

Anxiety In Motherhood: How I Learned To Calm, Self-Sooth And Control My Fears [EP-106]

May 29th, 2019

Hey love, 

Have you ever asked yourself,

"What is wrong with me?"

"Why can't I get my shit together?"

"Why am I always afraid and anxious that something really bad is going to happen?!"

"Why am I never calm? Why do I worry about stupid things?"

Here's the truth, anxiety in motherhood is a real thing. 

There are so many reasons why we moms feel anxious, "am I doing this right? Mom guilt, comparing yourself to others, feeling like you are missing out, should you have another baby, can you love another baby the same way?" An so on and so forth...

It is clear that living in a constant state of high stress and anxiety is detrimental to your health and the health of your family, so today on the show I talk about how I manage anxiety in my own life and practical tips to hopefully help you feel calmer, self-soothe and have a greater sense of control over your life. 

Remember that you are enough and you deserve to take care of yourself. 

Choose yourself first ALWAYS. 

Sending you much love & healing, 

XOXO,

Dorit

What Do You Wish For When You Blow Your Birthday Candles? [ep-105]

May 23rd, 2019

Hey love, 

Today I have a challenge for you. 

I want you to give yourself permission to dive deeper into yourself. 

I want you to ask yourself, "what do I wish for when I blow out my birthday candles?"

In other words, what do I REALLY want?

Here are some examples from my clients (and some of my own):

"I wish I could eat whatever I could and still feel and look great"

"I wish I had more spaciousness and peace of mind in my life"

"I wish I didn't have to work so hard to lose the weight"

"I wish life was easier"

"I wish my husband desired me more"

"I want to have more fun"

"I wish I could dance again"

Now it's your turn. Go deep and don't hold back! 

This is such an important piece when it comes to healing your relationship with your body, your health, your finances, your relationships with people, etc. 

In order to truly heal yourself, you need to start with the truth and build up from there. 

Choose yourself first, ALWAYS. 

Because (and you already know this) you cannot pour from an empty cup. 

Sending you much love & healing,

XOXO,

Dorit

How Do You Mistreat Yourself? [ep-104]

May 16th, 2019

Hey love,

I hear from so many of you that you want to know more about me.

I love reading and whenever I pick up a new book the first thing I do is go straight to the acknowledgments portion because that's where I the 'real' person lives.

So I get it.

Today on the podcast I share more about myself, my journey and my health mission.

I talk about:

  • The various ways in which I see women mistreating themselves as women, wives, and mothers.
  • How my maternal lineage influenced me and why I didn't want my daughters to end up like them.
  • My motherhood journey and the healing I've experienced in that (still do).
  • My 'eat-pray-love' moment and what came out of that.
  • My mission as an embodiment coach for women.
  • My approach and how it looks like to work with me.

I hope you can find yourself in my story and know that you are not alone!

Whether you struggle with your relationships with people (parenting, marriage), your relationship with money (not clear what to do with your life/time, scarcity mindset, money wounds, etc), or with your relationship with your body and health, I want you to know that this can change.

All you need to do is decide.

Say "yes" to yourself.

Open your mind.

Slow down and listen.

Ask for help and wait.

It will happen.

Your feminine energy doesn't travel in the speed of Google. It needs time to simmer and cook before it manifests.

You got this!

If you're ready to say 'yes' to yourself (or willing to open your mind to it), head on over to my website and schedule a quick coffee chat with me.

I'm happy to hold space for you and help you create a plan of action in your way to change and heal from past conditioning and find the true you ;)

Ohh, and forgot to add, it's free.

You're welcome.

Sending you much love & healing,

XOXO,

“What If My Husband Would Want Time Off Too? I Can’t Handle The Kids All By Myself!” [ep-102]

May 2nd, 2019

Hey mama,

Today on the show I am doing a follow up from last episode (ep-101) where I talked about how to sleep in with a clean conscious and without responsibilities for just one day.

So many of you resonated with this message and I'm so glad!

One message I've received really touched my heart, so I am responding to it today:

Here's what one mama wrote:

"Thank you for the podcast! I understand you now! I will have to work on myself to get the guts to do something like that, or at the very least have a half day to myself. Confession, I know if I would do it, my husband will want to as well. Not sure I can handle the kids on my own for a full day and overnight. This is so shameful to admit, I can't believe I am telling you this."

Today's show is my response to her.

Enjoy listening and let me know if you have any questions related to this topic. If there's enough interest, I might do a series of Q&A.

Sending you much love & healing,

xoxo,

Dorit

 

What Do You Desire? [EP-100]

April 10th, 2019

Hey mama,

100 EPISODES!!! Can you believe?

Today I am celebrating our 100th episode by walking you through a powerful exercise that will help you feel more connected to yourself and to your "WHY".

Why do you do what you do? Why do you bother to become a better woman, wife, and mother? Why do you wake up early every day? Why do you buy healthy food? Why do you plan your meals? Why do you want the kids to eat healthily? Why do you buy books, listen to podcasts? Why do you hire coaches and healers? Why?

If like me, you want to live a life full of meaning, intent, and passion, this is the place to start.

I highly recommend listening to this show with a pen and paper (preferably a journal) as you will want to record the insights that are coming up for you.

If you are a recovering pleaser and "good girl" like I am, this will be very helpful.

Your desires and cravings matter, let's start by finding what they are.

If you want to jump on a call with me, head on over to www.healthbeginswithmom.com/discovery-call and book a call with me, I will hold you accountable to your desire.

Sending you much love & healing!

XOXO,

Dorit

How Being An Orthorexic Mom Wounded My Daughter (And How We’re Healing From It) [episode #98]

March 29th, 2019

Hey mama, 

Today on the podcast I am sharing my journey recovering from orthorexia, how it interfered with my relationship with food, my marriage, parenting, social life and life in general. 

I hear so many mothers who feel like they are "the food police" or "food Nazis" and that stands in the way of feeling good inside of their own homes. I know how that feels! 

So let's talk about it. 

Here's what we cover:

  • I explain what orthorexia is and how it is different than anorexia (both are eating disorders)
  • How to know if you have orthorexia (aka food puritan)?
  • My own journey of being orthorexia, and how this wounded my daughter and my relationship with my family
  • Our healing journey and how we have shifted since then. 

If you are a mom who's feeling obsessed (or too controlling) of what her kids eat (or don't eat) you have got to listen to this episode! 

I want you to know that you are not alone and you can get help! 

The first step is to acknowledge you have this problem, start with listening to another mom sharing her experience (that would be me :) 

I want to hear from you! In the comments, tell me how do you feel about feeding your kids? And How do you keep your sanity around healthy eating and living?

I hope this is helpful to you, and if it is please share it with a mom who needs to hear this. 

Sending you much love & healing,  

XOXO,

Dorit

Letter To My Girls [ep-96]

March 13th, 2019

Hey mamas,

Today on the podcast I am reading a letter from a book called What I Told My Daughter - Lessons From Leaders On Raising The Next Generation Of Empowered Women. 

This book was recommended to me by my client and really hit home with me.

As a mama of three girls and a daughter to a mother of three girls myself, the message of empowered womanhood and leadership resonates with me very much.

I believe that mothers are leaders as well as healers.

One of my highest goals is to raise my daughters to become more of who they are and teach them that femininity is a force of power, not weakness.

I believe that as mothers we can empower our daughters to become leaders in their own right without passing on the legacy of stress, burnout, and anxiety.

It is possible to create and help heal the world while feeling fulfilled, vibrant and alive yourself.

Speaking of which, I'd like to remind you that next week, Tuesday, March 19th, I will be hosting a webinar on healing from burnout, stress, overwhelm and anxiety. 

Before we get to inspire our daughters, we have to practice these principles ourselves.

This webinar is a great start! Click here to join.

Wishing you a fabulous rest of the week!

Sending you much love & healing ;)

xoxo,

Dorit
