Is Your Health Story Building You Up, Or Holding You Back?

Every day, from the moment we wake up until our heads hit the pillow, we are immersed in stories and storytelling. They serve as a means to help us understand our circumstances and navigate our world. What we may not realize is the power behind our words. Narratives around disease can be intense and difficult—and I have come to believe that the stories we tell (both externally to others, and internally to ourselves) provide a structure and vocabulary that actually shape our reality. Our stories can give insight not only to our worldview, but also our approach to healing. Read more here.

I want to share my experience and my clients’ because when you’re able to catch and change this particular habit, the shifts you can create in your life (and your health!) are incredibly powerful.

How To Work Yourself Down When You've Worked Yourself Up

Everyone’s experience with autoimmune disease is different, but I’ve found that nearly all my clients report dealing with a bit of a roller coaster effect when it comes to their health. There are countless dramatic swings inherent in navigating the autoimmune journey.

Are You a Giver or a Taker? (And How Does it Impact Your Health?)

One particular topic has come up for me in my life recently — in an, “oh, sh*t!” hit-you-like-a-ton-of-bricks way — that has also been a theme in recent sessions with my clients. The aha moment in question? Living life as a giver or a taker. Learn how being a taker can deplete your energy and exacerbate illness and how being a giver can fill you up and support healing. You may realize how sneaky the taker mindset can be, even when you think you are being a giver.

Sexy and Lovable (at Any Stage of Autoimmune Disease!)

We’ve talked a lot about the power of mindset in navigating autoimmune disease, and how our internal conversation can be just as critical to managing symptoms as diet or medicine. Today I want to focus on how we can shift our mindset around our physical appearance so that we can thrive in relationship with ourselves and our partners. Read more here.

Think About It: Better Digestion Through Mindfulness

Many of my clients show up seeking big, sweeping solutions to their digestion issues. They often see food as the problem and so they want to get big diagnostic tests that spit out answers that say “avoid this food and this food and your digestive issues will be solved!” While this is a great part of a plan for many folks, the truth is that there’s a lot we can do to improve our digestion without having to take a single test—it’s all about shifting our mindset while we eat.
