    Featured Replay: Are you Full of S!*%? (Ep. 102)

    Featured Replay: Are you Full of S!*%? (Ep. 102)

    We are talking Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS for short today and I hope the title grabbed your attention because this topic is one I love to cover and by that I mean debunking the diagnosis. IBS only needs symptoms to reach a "diagnosis" and it comes from a process of elimination and not actually pinpointing what's actually going on. If you know me, this annoys me to not end which is part of the reason why I left the hospital setting and I hope through today's episode you'll understand the concept of IBS from a better lens.

    Kids Got the Short End of the Stick (Ep. 100)

    Our kids are suffering from the events that took place 2 years ago and no one is talking about it. I will though because this deserves the spotlight and what we need to do going forward. I want to share some frightening statistics on the decline of childhood development, reading and math scores, social decline issues, and much more we need to be a lot more cognizant of.

    Impacts of Poor Sleep (Ep. 98)

    Taking a minor break from ruffling the f*cking cages and feathers of what we call modern society these days and I wanted to talk about something a bit more conventional but important nevertheless and that is sleep. I have a multitude of studies for you to do your own research as I want to present this topic as clear cut as possible.

The best podcast that doesn’t sugar coat all things related to health, wellness, healing trauma

If you’re looking for aim incredible, raw, real, authentic and deeply thought-provoking podcast, look no further!!! This is IT!!! Taylor is a fellow Integrative Health Practitioner whose some of the formal educational experience came from the same program I was fortunate enough to be a part of too… Taylor’s wealth of knowledge in the Integrative Health & Wellness space, as well as Emotional Trauma Work, is next to none, on top of her personal incredible transformation story and journey. Listening to Taylor’s podcast myself had given me so many nuggets of wisdom and insights and ideas. Taylor continues to impress me with her message delivery skills on her podcast and also giving it to her listeners straight - without sugar coating the rough parts and real struggles. I can’t recommend enough going back to episode 1 of this podcast and binge listening to every single one of Taylor’s podcast episodes that have been released to-date. Put off Netflix binge watching and switch to Taylored Talks podcast binge listening - your better & future version of your SELF will thank you for it!!! 1,000%!!!

Such a genuine and passionate soul

Meeting Taylor online a few years ago and, then, experiencing her
passion for health for all of mankind is palatable! When she took her knowledge and clever interview style to a podcast, I was giddy to think of how her reach would be expanded to so many who need her message! Being a guest was simply the cherry on top.


I’m a world of misinformation, you can trust Taylor!

Taylor, I’m SO glad you started this podcast. You’ve changed my life over the last year and now friends and family from across the world can tune in, learn from you, and make life changing modifications to their health and overall well-being. Thank you for pouring into PEOPLE with TRUTH and KNOWLEDGE.
