Inspired. Real. Relevant

A deeper understanding of holistic wellness and the mind-body connection than I have ever experienced. Highly recommended.

shannon byrne ,

A little less “mmhmm”

Could just be my issue. I love Julie and her podcast. Especially on the Dr aviva romm podcast was very distracted by Julie loudly agreeing every 15-20 seconds it took away from what the guest had to share

EricWitmer ,

Brilliant.

Great host, awesome guests. The shows just seem to fly by. Highly recommend!
