Root Medicine with Dr. Sarah Byrne

On this episode of the Plan Simple Meals Podcast, I’m really excited to talk with Dr. Sarah Byrne, a Board Certified Family Medicine physician and the co-owner of Root Family Medicine, primary care, a holistic primary care practice.

I love the way she thinks about wellness and healing. We talk about the things you can do at home and for yourself to improve your health and wellness, things like self-care, knowing your body and the power of your intuition.

I asked Sarah for her top three self-care tips and she said the importance of having time to yourself without guilt about doing “nothing”; strengthening your body with slow, but powerful, herbal medicine, and doing things in a fun way instead of avoiding the things you feel like you “should” do.

We talk about:

  • The importance of self-care to wellness
  • Her approach to how what we eats affects our health, especially gluten and dairy
  • How to gather what you need different kinds of doctors and then make a decision
  • Checking in on your energy and stress levels
  • Ways to destress, like a ritual herbal tea and better sleep
  • Making the things you have to do (paperwork, driving kids from place to place) more enjoyable

Dr. Sarah Byrne is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician. Sarah chose to practice Family Medicine because she feels it allows her to build a strong doctor-patient relationship, care for people throughout their lives, and encourage diverse approaches to healing. Throughout medical school, in addition to her required medical school training, Sarah pursued an independent path in Integrative Medicine; prior to medical school, Sarah tried her hand at photography, writing, and teaching; all of these experiences contributed to her valuing a creative and open approach to the practice of medicine. She is the co-owner of Root Family Medicine, primary care, a holistic primary care practice.

Doable Changes from this episode:

  • MAKE TIME FOR YOU. This is a really simple doable change that feels daunting to many of us. So try this: pick half an hour this week to do your own thing. Do something fun or something relaxing that’s just for you—even if it looks like doing nothing.

  • BRING JOY TO A WELLNESS ACTIVITY. If you hate drinking water or exercising, how can you make it more joyful? Maybe you make tasty spa water or get a fun water bottle. Maybe you make your work out space more enjoyable or try a new activity. How can you turn a “should” into something that brings more joy?

  • UPGRADE YOUR MUST DOS. As much as we upgrade our lives, there will still be paperwork, bills, dishes or laundry, people to shuttle around … so how do we make those things less stressful? Like bringing joy to a wellness activity, try making the experience more pleasant. Light a candle or have a special tea while you do paperwork, crank up your favorite music or a podcast you love in the car or while doing household chores.

“Mia brings together the ideas and people to inspire a more balanced and meaningful life as a mom. She keeps it real and makes me laugh! I listen while I clean, walk, drive and fold laundry. She’d like a wise and caring friend who understands and supports the journey of motherhood. Mia know just what to say so that I feel understood and then provides the nuggets of wisdom with personal stories to reinvigorate my day.”
“Each week, I look forward to this podcast. Mia thoughtfully interviews guests who share their tips and tricks for encouraging healthy living for moms and their families. The ideas are not the traditional ones, and I am always in need of new, slightly unconventional ideas.”
“I love the simple and practical view that Mia takes on food and life. It encourages me to keep leading a healthy lifestyle that is accessible for any mom!”
