It was an absolute pleasure to talk to my guest, Brie Wieselman, today! Brie is a Health Coach who has studied TCM and is massively passionate about helping women achieve optimal health so they can go do kickass things in the world!
Today, we’re talking about two primary pillars in Brie’s practice: digestive health and hormones. We get really deep into why you can’t have a state of hormonal optimization without healthy digestion and how you can’t have healthy digestion unless your hormones are in balance. Often, we see these two things misaligned for women — so in this episode, we get totally real on why your business is likely causing your hormonal issues. We also get into exploring how you can start to achieve optimal digestive health, what normal even looks like, and what you need to have in place to experience hormonal bliss.
Brie is full of wisdom, she’s got a ton of experience, and in this episode, she shares a ton of interesting tidbits with us that’s she picked up along the way from her virtual clinic! I definitely recommended tuning into this one!
