382: How Warrior Mom JJ Virgin Helped Her Son Thrive When Doctors Left Him For Dead Food Heals

    • Nutrition

In 2012, JJ Virgin was in a hospital room next to her sixteen-year-old son who was struck by a hit-and-run driver and left for dead. She was told by doctors that he wouldn’t last through the night and to let him go.
With every reason to give up, JJ chose instead to invest her energy into the hope that her son would not just survive, but thrive.
In the latest episode of Food Heals, she shares the journey of overcoming the worst moment of her life.
It’s a story of western medicine and holistic healing modalities working together to heal a young man and a mom that wouldn’t take no for an answer.
During this difficult time, JJ learned valuable personal lessons that helped her rebuild her life and find success and purpose in herself, her work, and teach her sons and community how to face their own obstacles and trials.
JJ believes that inside every mother is a fierce, resilient, intuitive woman who has the ability to tap into an indomitable mindset and create heroic outcomes—for her children, her family, her community and for herself—she is a Warrior Mom!
