Dr. Molly Niedermeyer

In this episode Learn True Health is honored to feature Dr. Molly Niedermeyer, Naturopath and Midwife.  She has practiced in the Seattle area for 31 years.  She served as Dean of Naturopathic Medicine and Chair of the Midwifery Department at Bastyr University.  She continues to teach as a guest instructor at Bastyr and gives lectures and writes articles as well.

Dr. Molly is dedicated to teaching her patients how to take better care of themselves and has developed a Five Point Health Plan.

In order of importance, these points are:
1. The Need for Water
2. Good and Healthy Diet
3. Sleep
4. Exercise
5. Supplement Regime

Water is number one for a reason.  When you have finished listening to this podcast you will understand just how important adequate water intake is to the support and health of your body. Diet, sleep, exercise and supplements can’t fully benefit the body if it isn’t fully hydrated.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

What prevents you from being in optimal health?

If you don’t sweat during vigorous exercise, you’re already dehydrated.

90% of your body is water.  A 5% reduction in hydration results in a 25% reduction in energy.

There is a Five Point Health Plan that you can follow to achieve optimal health.

Health AH-HA Moment:

Your body will make the wisest decision it can in every moment.  It will give louder and louder messages till you pay attention.

Your Challenge:

Give yourself a health/energy grade from 1 – 10

Drink 1/3 of your body weight in ounces of water every day.  If you weigh 150 lbs, drink 50 ounces of water. Add another 8 ozs for every cup of coffee, glass of wine, juice, soda, etc.  Follow this routine for 2 weeks, and then give yourself a new grade as to how you feel.  Dr. Molly predicts a marked improvement!

Dr. Megan Saunders

Dr. Megan Saunders returns to Learn True Health to discuss a very important part of our health: Sleep.  “Sleep is not a luxury, it is a requirement.” The four foundations of health are good nutrition, a healthy emotional state (feeling fulfilled), exercising the body, and getting good sleep.

Sometimes stress gets the better of you and keeps you awake. Dr. Megan says you need to process the stress of anger or depression in a way that’s appropriate.

It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get angry about something, but if it’s an emotion that you are unable to process and it’s keeping you up at night, then that should be addressed.

It’s understandable that parents who also have careers, for instance, stay up late because they want personal time to themselves to watch TV or read a book. But if we do that consistently we are stealing snooze time from ourselves.


Dr. Megan describes the processes performed by the body while we’re asleep, all of which are crucial to our health when we are awake.  People who have difficulty falling asleep have different health issues than those who fall asleep easily but wake after a few hours and can’t fall asleep again.

After listening to this podcast you will undoubtedly want to learn more about how you can obtain a restful sleep, night after night.

At learntruehealth.com you will find videos on sleep and a new film featuring a yogi demonstrating meditation and breathing techniques that will enhance your night’s rest.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

There’s a breathing technique that will help put you to sleep.

Difficulty falling asleep and difficulty staying asleep have two different, treatable causes.

Your cat sleeping next to you in bed may be the reason you can’t sleep.

Your sugar intake might be keeping you awake.

Eat protein before bedtime

Health AH-HA Moment:

The body creates symptoms because it’s the only language the body can speak.

Your Challenge:

Follow Dr. Megan’s instructions on how to improve your sleep: clean up your diet, practice her breathing exercises, give up screen time beginning one hour before bedtime, darken your bedroom completely, and remove all allergens from the room. Learn about the herbs and tinctures that promote sleep. Heard of Ashwagandha?

Dr. Heidi Semanie

This Learn True Health episode features Dr. Heidi Semanie, who, after the following experience, obtained her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University.  She also has a B.S. in Biological Science with minor degrees in English and Anthropology.

No level of education, no number of degrees could have prepared her for her extremely challenging three months as a paramedic in the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  She describes the magnitude of work, of need, of the devastation she saw.

It was like a war zone with looting and police escorts. Imagine seeing a bathtub in a tree, houses piled on top of each other, dead bodies that you must remove from the raging river.

Before this experience Dr. Semanie had wanted to become a trauma surgeon, but having seen what she saw, having been so intimately involved, “I just thought that I didn’t want to be the person somebody saw once a year to check in.  I wanted to be somebody who could be on the ground, helping, hands-on.”

Dr. Semanie describes her student years at Bastyr University.  She made some life-changing discoveries that will encourage Learn True Health listeners to reach for the stars in their quest for excellence.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

  • How to make your experiences become a positive predictor of your future calling.
  • How to listen for the whisper so you don’t get hit by the cosmic 2 by 4!
  • What it’s like to witness the aftermath of a natural disaster and how to survive the experience in a positive way.
  • How to listen to the Universe so that life sets you up to succeed.

Health AH-HA Moment:

The Four Agreements are:

1. Sleep

2. Water

3. Food

4. Emotional Connection with Loved Ones.

Your Challenge:

  • You need to be healthy yourself before you can help anyone else.
  • Always listen to your intuition.
  • After hearing Dr. Semanie’s choices, decide what 3 items from a supplements store you would want to have on a tropical desert island.
  • Spend the next week being honest with yourself.  Discover what stories you tell yourself that keep you from your intended goals, e.g. “I’ll just have this one chocolate because I need the sugar.”
