Why I Quit Listening to Health Podcasts

Health and nutrition podcasts can provide a wealth of free information when you’re dealing with chronic gut conditions like SIBO, H pylori, leaky gut, or Celiac Disease.

But, these podcasts can also be overwhelming and keep you focused on your illness instead of living your life.

Read this blog post to learn why I quit listening to health podcasts and how I’m now feeling so much healthier!

When Your Doctor Says You’re Fine, Part 1 - Analyzing Lab Ranges

We’ve all been there - you go to your doctor’s office for answers about your chronic illness, gut symptoms, or autoimmune disease, and all they can tell you is you’re completely healthy.

I’ve been there so many times, and in this four part blog series I’m going to show you how to dig deeper into your medical test results in order to uncover the root of your health concerns and get back to your healthiest life!

In part one, we’re going to look at the difference between western medical lab ranges, and functional medicine lab ranges, and how they can make a big difference in your treatment plans.

How the Hustle is Hurting Your Health

Hustling for those worldly achievements, like promotion or staying out late with friends, is just what society tells us is normal these days.

But when you’re dealing with a chronic illness trying to keep up can often times hurt your health.

Succumbing to the hustle just isn’t worth it, not when you’re doing it to please someone else or live up to society’s standards. And especially not if you’re hurting your health in the process.

So, I encourage you to find your own path to success and contentment, even if it looks nothing like society tells you it should - one that brings you joy and leads to a healthy, full life.

Healing Power of the Mind-Body Connection in Chronic Illness

In a guest post from my wonderful mother, she shares her journey with chronic illness, autoimmune disease, and the relationship that stress has played in her health for her entire life.

It was only until she discovered and cultivated a meditation practice was she able to take control of her anxiety and fear, and successfully manage her stress - and in turn successfully manage her health.

The mind-body connection is a powerful thing, and it’s truly quite amazing that we have been given the ability to control our thoughts, emotions, and ultimately our health!
