How do you know if you have autoimmune, what do you do
about it? What is it even, I have a soft place in my heart for this because I have Hashimoto and you know, I didn't know what that was. I didn't know what was wrong with me. And I struggled with, you know, weird illnesses for so many years.

It sounds like it was your mindset that’s really allowing you to fully become yourself, but also it’s that mindset that’s helping you change your health habits.
Oh, that’s beautiful. Like, I talk about this a lot, this idea of leaning into the pain and really the human work that we have to do in order to make a lifestyle change. Like those emotions, those feelings, those wounds of the past, whatever it is, those beliefs and perceptions that we grew up with, all of those, like it’s in our mind.
I remember scarlet and...

Hi, I’m Christa King and I’ve cracked the code to making healthy habits stick by learning how to rewire my mind through my recovery is a burned out corporate exec to becoming a certified hypnotherapist and nutritional therapist.
I was 50 pounds overweight, drinking a bottle or two of wine every night, working 70 hours a week, traveling three to four weeks out of the month, all while my mother was suffering from severe mental illness 3000 miles away.
Once I unlock the secret, I started with myself losing and now maintaining 30 pounds of weight, but weight loss aside, it was my mind that had change. Weight loss was a byproduct.
I asked myself, how do I share the stories of people who have made massive changes in their lives by merely stepping out...

How, you know, problems aren’t usually formed in isolation or solved in isolation. So, it takes people with different perspectives coming together to, to, to either solve problems or even to figure out what the problem is.
And over the course of the last six years, I can’t believe it’s been six years almost since I went on that retreat. I’ve really started to not only embody the power of, you know, what...

We have an exciting show for you today as we help you get over the fear of jumping into the ketogenic diet with the Queen of Keto herself, Leanne Vogel!
Leanne started studying nutrition in 2007 to help her better understand her body and how it worked with the foods she was putting into it. Originally going to school to help herself, she discovered after graduation that she had learned too much not to help other people and that’s when her blog, “Healthful Pursuit” was born.
Being a super athlete, Leanne noticed after years of not having her menstrual cycle that she wasn’t performing at her best and was continually struggling to put on muscle. This sparked her interest in regulating her cycle, but after starting hormone replacement therapy she discovered it was stunting her training even more. She went to a naturopath begging for help and that’s where she was introduced to a ketogenic diet.
Desperate for a change, Leanne who was a vegan and whole-foods...
