In today’s episode, I get personal about my struggle with my body dysmorphia, self-talk, and struggle with self-love.
Bodies come in all shapes and sizes and rarely are they accepted by society/the media. Too many of us are self-conscious and self-critical, and focusing too much on our flaws. The worst thing we can do is make comparisons to and assumptions about ourselves and others. When we judge others, we are really just projecting our own self judgement onto someone else. We all need to learn to love who we are because we are all unique; there is no perfect body, no perfect person.
Tune into today’s episode to learn more about the best ways to cultivate self-love.
In today’s episode we explore the triggers for procrastination. What is it that stalls our motivation? How can we keep the motivation momentum going?
Procrastination grows from our inability to prioritize effectively. This failure to prioritize stems from either a fear of doing something, from unreasonable expectations or simply because we haven’t generated enough reasons to get the job done.
Tune into to today’s episode to learn more about the best ways to avoid getting stuck in the paralysis of procrastination.

Today’s episode dives into how eating plants can cause inflammation in the body.
“WHAT?!” You’re probably thinking. “I thought I was supposed to eat plants!”
The short answer is yes, eat plants. But the more in depth answer is maybe there are some plants that are contributing to the inflammation in your body. Today I give you the run down on lectins, plant defense systems. Lectins are thought to have evolved as a natural defense in plants, essentially as a toxin that deters animals from eating the plants.
In “The Plant Paradox”, by Dr. Steven Gundry, MD, the mechanism by which plants defend themselves from predators (us/humans) is related to (and possibly the cause of) how it affects our GI system and our ability to absorb and process nutrients. It’s an interesting hypothesis and one that as the title refers to is a paradox to what we’ve been told about how and what to eat.
Tune in to today’s episode to find out if some plants could be the source of your digestive troubles, fatigue and many other symptoms.
Have you been told you don’t need your gallbladder? or have you already had it removed? Do you suffer from GI distress like heartburn and trouble digesting even the healthy fats?
