Deeply substantial and amazingly practical

It’s obvious JJ puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights she brings to bear is still mind-blowing Every. Single. Time.

No matter the subject, you’re guaranteed to gain something from every episode - can’t recommend Ask the Health Expert enough 🙌

Great , useful info to ponder but

The balance between self promotion, content, sincerity, intent, brilliance, humility and wisdom is concerning.
Remember that what we tout as knowledge, even backed by erudite research, will morph and grow so that the idea of certainty is relevant and reforming. I prefer to view most every conclusion, every remedy, prefaced with the wisdom of this knowledge.
It would be affirming to hear all these proclaimed experts, and even all medical practitioners, speak and promote this truth along with the jewels and advice.
We learn more and shift our thinking.

I applaud your willingness to share your life’s work and what you’ve come to understand at this juncture in time.
And I get the necessity of advertising, but when listening to many shows in a row it becomes tiresome and less effective,, perhaps even negative. I call it disadvertusing and defeating the intent.
Thank you!!!

Good information

The last time I posted a comment here, I complained about when the podcasts were posted. I do not know if this has been addressed or not because the podcast format has been changed and there has not been any weekend shows until recently.

And it is about the new weekend podcast I would like to comment. As usual the podcasts are interesting and informative, but there is a problem. JJ has interviewed two guests about their yet to be published books. Both of these guests have promised bonuses to those who pre-order their books. However, the podcasts have been posted after the books have come out, so the listeners are unable to get the bonuses. These podcasts need to come out BEFORE the books come out if you want your listeners to get all the benefits promised. As a result of, I am taking my stars down to a 3.

I enjoy listening to JJ’s podcasts and learn a lot and would love to share them with my friends. However, (and the reason for the 4 stars) when I go to her website to get the link they are not there on they day they are aired. It would be great if the podcasts were on her website the day they were posted on iTunes. Also, I would love to hear a show on CBD oil and its benefits. More specifically, why it would help with brain fog. ~ Beverly Spring
