Fav quotes from this episode:
“When do we become an adult? As a mother of a teenager, when it suits her she calls herself a child, when it doesn’t she calls herself an adult.”
“We have a responsibility to ourselves to honour our own wellness”
“It’s so easy to give the responsibility for your health to someone else.”
In this episode we talk about:
- The importance of taking ownership of your personal journey to health.
- How even though you may feel as though you need to work towards health on your own – you don’t have to! It’s important to work within your skillset; you pay an electrician if you need your house re-wiring, and you pay an accountant if you need your finances arranging – why not seek out a professional to help you take ownership of your health and wellbeing?
- How functional medicine is about digging down deep and looking at the root cause of why we are ‘out of balance’. It can be a number of factors, from the toxic world we live in to stress, hormonal imbalance, gut dysbiosis, etc.
- The importance of the mind-body interaction when it comes to physical and mental wellbeing.
Plus, we talk about the value of an accountability buddy when it comes to ensuring that you are honouring your own wellness and doing all you can to take responsibility of your own health.
