    157: The true meaning of health with Rachel Scheer

    Hi friends! I have a new podcast episode up today and am so happy to be chatting with Rachel Scheer.
    We talk about:
    Her healing story and how she become a functional medicine practitioner
    Her tips for stress reduction and how stress impacts major functions in the body
    The pillars of health and what it means to be healthy
    Her tips for being “Healthy in Real Life” 
    and so much more!
    157: The true meaning of health with Rachel Scheer Rachel Scheer is a certified Functional Medicine practitioner with a degree in Nutrition Science and Dietetics from Baylor University. She is also the CEO and founder of Rachel Scheer Nutrition, a leading Functional Medicine Nutrition Practice in the United States. Facing severe gut issues that nearly led to surgery, which would have removed her entire large intestines, Rachel transformed her health through functional medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle changes. She is passionate about helping others do the same.
    Connect with Rachel on her website and her Instagram.
