I wake up with a vulnerability hangover and process it with you – what caused it and how to let it go. We speak about how fear protects us from shame and how we can heal shame with self-compassion so we can move forward in our dreams and goals!
In today’s vlog, I speak about how the chronic pain I’ve experienced for most of my life was triggered by traumatic events in my youth.

Also, tips for getting the body and mind into a state where healing is possible.

I hope they help you (or someone you love) too. x

My body was going downhill fast. Making it through the day was agony! I knew that if I didn’t get things under control, I wasn’t going to accomplish much in this life…if I got to live much longer, for that matter.
I became certain I was going to die young. How long could a person possibly survive a full life, when their body couldn’t repair itself? The urgency this created within me spurred me to research the condition like crazy! Continue reading “How I Healed My Body With Higher-Quality Food”
