    391: Healthy AF: 4 Steps to Completely Transform Your Health with Functional Medicine, Peptide Therapy, Daily Habits, and Emotional Healing

    391: Healthy AF: 4 Steps to Completely Transform Your Health with Functional Medicine, Peptide Therapy, Daily Habits, and Emotional Healing

    Are you ready for a total health transformation? In today's episode of Food Heals we're talking all about how to get healthy AF with 4 simple steps.
     
    Did you know that most of us gain extra weight between Halloween and the New Year? Let's be honest - it makes sense! This time of year is full of fall celebrations, family get-togethers, gift giving, and a two month food fest - one that often ends in weight gain and feeling worse on January 1st than you did just two months ago.
     
    The problem is that weight gained during the holiday season usually takes months to lose according to the New England Journal of Medicine. And many of us never lose the weight, packing on extra pounds that stay on and accumulate, year after year. In fact, researchers found that it took much longer to lose the weight than to gain the weight. 
     
    So I don't know about you but our goal at Food Heals over the holiday months is to have fun, and enjoy the holidays, but not become a statistic!
     
    That's why on today's episode we'll go over four steps to completely transform your health with functional medicine, peptide therapy, daily habits, and emotional healing.
     
    Today's show was created to inspire you that you can absolutely reach your health, wellness, and weight loss goals - now matter what time of year it is! Because, remember, the body is designed to heal itself when given the tools it needs to do so. So let's give it the tools for transformation!
     
    Tune in to learn:
     
    How to find the perfect diet that is right for you
    A brand new weight loss secret that for everyone who has tried everything to slim down and nothing has worked (Hint: it is Elon Musk approved)
    Four small daily habits that can completely change your life - and your body
    Why we have food addiction and how to heal it for good - Hint: it's emotional
    How to get healthy AF in 2023
    And more

    390: Overcoming Adversity and Creating the Life You Desire with Growth Now Movement's Justin Schenck

    390: Overcoming Adversity and Creating the Life You Desire with Growth Now Movement's Justin Schenck

    Whether it's wealth, the perfect car, the perfect house, or the perfect partner, all we are really seeking is happiness. We all have the ability to unlock happiness at will. Today's guest believes the way to do that is by growing in four pillars of our lives: relationships, business, spirituality, and wellness.
     
    If there was a high school senior superlative for Least Likely to Succeed, that would have been Justin Schenck. At 18 years old, he found himself with a 1.7 GPA, while his mom was in the middle of a 20 year opioid battle and his dad was in jail. All signs pointed to no hope and Justin believed he was destined to fail.
     
    At 19 years old, Justin got introduced to personal development by a mentor of his and became wildly obsessed with the idea that he had full control over the outcome of his life simply by choosing to grow. The realization that it didn't matter where he came from or what had happened to him in the past, but instead that he could shape his future with the choices that he makes in the present. This realization would set him on the path that would lead to The Growth Now Movement, which is a podcast, an annual in-person event, and of course: a movement.
     
    Today Justin speaks across the country about overcoming adversity and creating the lives that we desire. His podcast plays in over 100 countries every single week and his forthcoming book will be released sometime next year.

Aloe

My uncle had stage 4 cancer and his doctor gave him a prescription for Aloe Vera vitamins which he still takes to keep the cancer away. So for you to be censored for educating us on the healing products of Aloe is not okay. Even the medical field knows and practices using aloe.
You are amazing and thanks for educating us! Hugs 🤗
