Ep #14: Improve Your Metabolic Health With These 4 Simple Tips

Usually on this podcast, I am focused on teaching the physical and biological aspects of health, the reasons things are happening in your body, or the psychological neuroscience behind your behaviors. But today I’m getting a bit personal, and I’m sharing a snippet into my private life to hopefully inspire you to make some changes in your life, give your nervous system a break, and start putting way less time into getting the results you want.

Back in August 2023, my family and I moved to Costa Rica. We are now 6 months into our year abroad, and I have noticed some massive shifts in my metabolic health, appetite, nervous system regulation and anxiety. So today, I’m sharing the biggest lessons I’ve learned as a Holistic Nutritionist and hormone expert from 6 months of living near a blue zone, and how I plan on bringing some of these lessons back with me when we return to Canada.

Join me this week as I share 4 key principles I’ve learned living in Costa Rica that that have massively changed how I focus on my metabolic health and significantly contributed to an improvement in my nervous system. I show you why these changes didn’t come from putting in more time and effort, and how you can apply some of these principles right now in your life wherever you are in the world, to make your life more manageable.
