    Ep 17 - Diet Culture, Radical Self Love and Food Freedom with Jennifer Dragonette

    Ep 17 - Diet Culture, Radical Self Love and Food Freedom with Jennifer Dragonette

    Jennifer Dragonette has a burning passion to help women get off the crazy fad diets that don’t work and are actually harming their bodies. She teaches her clients how to check in with their body, empowering  them with an elimination protocol to find sensitives, and shows them a  life of FOOD FREEDOM. No more “good and bad” when it comes to food. Just empowered choices. She believes it time to give up dieting, learn to love food, and most importantly, learn to LOVE YOURSELF unconditionally. She takes women from Food Confusion to FOOD FREEDOM. Master the art of eating to FUEL your body, not poison it without a lifetime of dieting. Results without the life a restriction.
    Her  journey started when she was a child and was diagnosed with three  chronic illnesses, that can now be connected to inflammation. Her twenty-plus years of healing her own body, and nutrition, EFT  Tapping, and yoga training has allowed her to build a program that  combines mind, body, and soul. This approach allows for food freedom and unconditional love for self. A perfect combination for health, weight-loss, and an abundance of happiness.
