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.
