Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • What inspired me to get into the world of health
  • Why you should seek a second or third opinion rather than taking your doctor’s advice at face value
  • Why it’s important to take that step of finding a health coach 
  • Turning my health journey into a career
  • Overcoming my limiting beliefs


Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t just take your doctor’s advice at face value. Just because they recommend this one medication or one approach, it doesn’t mean that it’s the only approach.
  • Your body has this incredible innate ability to heal. If you are feeding it the right food and taking care of it in the right way, you don’t need to rely on medications.
  • Staying in one direction and keeping it going is so important to success. 


Action Steps:

  • Tune in to your body and know more about it. Learn to honor your body and understand your period.
  • Seek out second or third opinions. Don’t just go with the allopathic approach but seek out naturopathic approaches and functional medicine.
  • Find a mentor that you can reach out to and have a comfortable conversation with.
  • Invest in yourself.
  • Build a team of people that can support you in your journey.
