    Ep. 97: Finding Joy While Living with Hashimoto's & Autoimmunity with Shanna Nemrow, FNTP

    Ep. 97: Finding Joy While Living with Hashimoto's & Autoimmunity with Shanna Nemrow, FNTP

    I’m so excited to introduce you to Shanna Nemrow, FNTP! I found Shanna via YouTube about a year ago when I was dabbling with the AIP diet (Autoimmune Protocol) and loved her authenticity and helpful tricks for living with Hashimoto’s. I asked Shanna to be on the podcast to talk about all things Hashimotos and we definitely dug into some big thyroid topics during our chat.
    Shanna is a Hashimoto’s warrior herself and now helps others out there dealing with thyroid issues. Her story is inspiring and we also tapped into the emotional side of living with Hashimoto’s, which is just as important (if not even MORE important) than the physical. Her content is all about finding joy while living with autoimmune disease and it’s such a refreshing way to talk about chronic illness.
    Shanna and I also talked about dealing with depression, anxiety and mental health issues with Hashimoto’s but didn’t get to it today. Let me know if you’d like another episode with Shanna to dive into this!
    In today’s episode we chat about:
    Shanna’s story with Hashimoto’s (which is similar to so many of ours!)
    Exercise intolerance and how that’s affected both Shanna and Jessie
    How Hashimoto’s looks different for every single person
    The emotional side of Hashimoto’s and how that can be so difficult for us all
    Giving your body grace and not comparing yourself to others (or even yourself)
    What AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) is, why Shanna used it in her healing and how she helps others on their AIP-journey
    Comparing yourself to others with (or without) chronic illness and how we’ve gotten through that
    Why working with someone when doing a strict “diet” for your health is extremely beneficial
    Finding control in an uncontrollable life with Hashimoto’s and finding the things we can work on to feel better, rather than focusing on the things we cannot
    The important ways that Shanna sets up her days and weeks to feel her best
    How Shanna works with Hashimoto’s warriors and where you can join her community

    Ep. 96: Nourishing Ourselves, Living with Lupus and Chronically Fabulous with Marisa Zeppieri

    Ep. 96: Nourishing Ourselves, Living with Lupus and Chronically Fabulous with Marisa Zeppieri

    Time for another episode of the Chronically Healing Podcast! Today’s episode is with the founder of Lupus Chick, Marisa Zeppieri. Marisa and I chatted all about her experience with Lupus, getting run over by a drunk driver in her early teens, why she started Lupus Chick and so much more. We also dove into being a business owner with chronic illness, how to best nourish yourself during this life and the comparison game. I’m also super pumped for y’all to hear about her new book, Chronically Fabulous, that just came out!
    In today’s episode we chat about:
    The road to finding out that Marisa had Lupus and why the diagnosis can be difficult to get
    Getting run over by a pickup truck by a drunk driver and going through rehab (and that triggered a bunch of her symptoms)
    What prompted her to start Lupus Chick
    The different modalities that she loves to nourish and take care of her body
    What it’s like to be running a business with chronic illness
    Comparing yourself to others with (or without) chronic illness and how we’ve gotten through that
    Why Marisa decided to write Chronically Fabulous and what it’s about

    Ep. 95: When Thyroid Medication Isn't Enough (PLUS a teaser announcement) with Christina Sanghera

    Ep. 95: When Thyroid Medication Isn't Enough (PLUS a teaser announcement) with Christina Sanghera

    I am SO excited to share my conversation with Christina Sanghera on the Chronically Healing Podcast today! Christina is a friend of mine I met on Instagram and we’ve clicked since the beginning. I wanted to have Christina on the show for a real and raw conversation about Hashimoto’s, but we dipped into so many other conversation while we were at it. We talked about sleep, our health issues leading up to Hashimoto’s, supplements and lifestyle changes we’ve made PLUS what it’s actually like to have chronic illness. Somedays you may feel great, others you may not… and we get into the nitty gritty of all of that.
    Christina and I also have a fun announcement coming SOON! Can you guess what it is?
    In today’s episode we chat about:
    Christina's health story with abusing her body with unhealthy habits, addiction and other various symptoms before finally being diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
    Both Christina and Jessie's experience with Hashimoto's medications and how that was never enough to actually feel better
    Our experiences with alternative medicine and methods to feel better and take care of ourselves
    The supplements that Christina recommends for most people (obviously speak with your doctor first!)
    SLEEP: Why it's important and how it doesn't need to be perfect, but should be something you're paying attention to
    How Christina works with people who have chronic illness
    SO much more about Hashimoto's, hypothyroid and a very fun announcement teaser that Christina and I have coming soon!

    More about Christina Sanghera:
    Christina is a Holistic Health Coach for women business owners with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism. A fellow Hashimoto’s warrior, she once struggled just to get through the day.
    Her lifestyle was a merry-go-round of unhealthy habits, and when she was later diagnosed, it all came full circle and she knew something had to change. It was this moment in her life that inspired countless hours of education, training and soul searching.
    Having experienced firsthand what it feels like to suddenly lose your health and wellbeing and to struggle daily, her unique point of view allows her to offer sound advice that’s rooted in empathy from having experienced many of the ailments she now helps women overcome. She believes that you shouldn’t have to make a choice between following your dreams of business ownership or tending to a chronic illness … you CAN do both!
    In the beginning of 2018 she welcomed a healthy, vibrant baby girl after multiple unexplained miscarriages years prior. Her birth was a testament to the tireless effort of reclaiming health one step at a time.
    Be it holistic “bio-hacking”, an intense HIIT routine or downtime with a good book or podcast, Christina now dedicates her life to inspiring others and immersing herself in natural, sustainable health. Through real food nutrition, movement, nervous system healing and more she helps women from all walks of life navigate their health, achieve their goals and thrive.

Very enjoyable and encouraging to listen to

Jessie does a wonderful job crafting each episode of this podcast. She and her guests cover a wide array of topics relating to chronic illness and health in a coffee chat style. Keeping it a casual conversation makes it very easy to listen to. Definitely recommend!

Just started listening but LOVE this podcast! Thank you for sharing your journey!

A chronic healing companion

I discovered this podcast when rachel from the invisible hypothyroidism website was interviewed by Jesse, and have since learned most of what I know about chronic healing. Each podcast presents a relatable story and LOTS of useful life tips n tricks for living your best life, no matter what challenges you’re dealing with. It’s been a voice that I felt has been silent and not acknowledged in the mainstream medical world. But so so important and definitely worth a listen on your commute or while soaking in the bath! 🥳🤩👍👍👍
