Through interviews with experts from a variety of disciplines, I hope to inspire, educate and empower you to create a life in which you can achieve your highest levels of health, happiness, and fulfillment. If you are looking for holistic yet science-backed advice, digestible and applicable content and someone to hold you accountable to the changes you have always been wanting to make...welcome to the family.

Covid 19 Positive? Everything I Did the First 24 Hours to Avoid Hospitalization
On Friday, July 10th I was going about my day, feeling perfectly fine. Around 2:30 PM, out of nowhere I suddenly started to feel full-body muscle aches, headache, weakness, shortness of breath, chest pain, sore throat, and chills. And when I say out of nowhere, I mean it. Literally one minute I was fine and 60 seconds later it was like a train hit me.
In this episode, I detail my immediate response and the specific things I did to support my immune system’s ability to fight off pathogens. My number and severity of symptoms truly scared me and I thought I might need to go to the hospital as they were getting worse quickly. I truly believe my immediate response and the immune-boosting things I did saved me from hospitalization.

The Doshas in Quarantine: An Ayurvedic Approach to Isolation w/Irina Adriaensen
Originally from Belgium, Irina Adriaensen left the corporate work life after a series of burnouts and during a 6-month sabbatical discovered the power of yoga and Ayurveda. A certified Ayurvedic practitioner, she now lives and practices in Portugal. Today, Irina and I discuss the different ways each dosha type may be struggling during this period of coronavirus quarantine/isolation.
Irina breaks down the specific symptoms of imbalance each dosha might experience and highlights the activities as well as foods each dosha can do/eat to restore balance. Towards the end, we also touch on best practices in terms of eating habits for all dosha types. When the best times to eat are, if snacking is okay, which doshas should be snacking and which shouldn’t, when to stop eating for the day, etc.
Acknowledging Childhood Trauma, Identifying Negative Patterns, & Finding Your True Self w/Dr. Courtney Tracy
In this episode of The Accrescent Podcast, I have the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Courtney Tracy. Her extensive education and experience in the realm of psychology as well as her no-nonsense approach to mental health has led her to be known as “The Truth Doctor”. In this interview, we examine how childhood trauma plays out in our everyday lives either consciously or subconsciously. Dr. Tracy notes that many people believe so many negative facets of their personality are “just who they are”. We don’t recognize that many of these negative patterns and impulses are related to trauma from our past.
Her passion lies in helping individuals recognize these negative patterns and discover their “true self” underneath them. We discuss ways of identifying trauma patterns as well as ways to begin to heal those past wounds and no longer live as slaves to our trauma impulses.
