Tara grew up in an alcoholic household and was the victim of incest. She had always been an intuitive child, but her chaotic childhood didn’t allow her to connect with her gift. She overcame all of that—healing her trauma and repairing her relationship with her mom. She’s now a certified Angel Card Reader and Angel Intuitive, a Social Media Maven, is writing her healing memoir Came to Believe, and is just a few weeks away from becoming a certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher!

Millions of people struggle with autoimmune conditions – maybe you’re one of them. If you are, then listen up: You CAN heal yourself. You don’t have to go through a lifetime on prescription pills, just managing your symptoms, masking your pain. You can heal, and you can thrive. Today’s guest is living proof that the body can heal itself if given the tools it needs to do so.

From the age of 12, Lauren Tatarchuk was a medical mystery. Diagnoses were proclaimed: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, lupus, Lyme disease. She struggled with chronic pain, exhaustion, muscle weakness, severe migraines—she didn’t have the strength to get out of bed without Adderall. Lauren was so heavily medicated that she doesn’t remember much of her adolescence. She was on a shoebox of pills every day – until that day she snapped, ripped the medicine box off the wall and threw the pills across the room. She fell to the floor, sobbing. Enough was enough. Enough with the pills, and enough with the victim mentality. She’d had enough of the medical crutches, she was going to let her pain fuel her motivation to get well naturally.

Lauren is now a regenerative detoxification specialist, biofeedback expert, and is leading the Heal Yourself Revolution. She uses iridology and bio-resonance to help people release old emotions and heal physical conditions. Having healed herself of her autoimmune conditions, she knows it IS possible and wants to be a message of hope to anyone suffering with chronic illness. Lauren wants to use her story to move the masses from being victims to taking charge of their health. Lauren’s coaching program starts in August and you can get on the waiting list by clicking here.

For Lauren, being a Spirit Junkie is all about standing up for what you believe and being unapologetic about expressing who you are on an authentic level. And if you want to be part of this growing community, we’re excited to announce that enrollment for the Spirit Junkie Masterclass Digital is open (but only until Thursday June 29th!). There has never been a better time to create the life you want and dive into your heart-centered business. When you sign up, you’ll also get over bonuses worth over $1900, including two coaching calls with Gabby and all the tools and resources you’ll need to to take that next step to living abundantly. And of course, you get access to the Spirit Junkie community, where you’ll get support and accountability from beautiful souls who are on the same path as you. There’s a reason you’re being called to this training. Now is the time to listen to that call.

We live in a strange distorted time. A time of Instagram filters, airbrushing and plastic surgery. Remember that embarrassing incident in high school? Now imagine it had been Facebook Live’d. It’s a whole new ball game for today’s teenagers. They are under so much pressure to be flawless, to be popular, to be liked.

Dr. Carla was an awkward teenager, she simply didn’t fit in. She struggled with body image issues and low self-esteem. But she knew that she wanted to become an adult that young girls could talk to. Now, Dr. Carla is a transformational life coach for teenage girls, and an inspirational speaker. Her Teen Girl University is a girl empowerment program that teaches girls what they’re not being taught at school: Self-love, mindfulness, healing the sisterhood wound; her program helps girls come together globally to connect with, encourage, and support each other.

Dr. Carla also runs a business academy dedicated to teaching women how to create sustainable and profitable businesses through speaking and coaching. The biggest challenge she comes across with her business clients is one she also had to overcome: lack of confidence to charge for work.

So how can you step out of a mindset that holds you back? Carla sought a mentor, and found Gabby Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie community. She’s gone through the Spirit Junkie Digital Masterclass, Level 2 and Mastermind, and it has been transformational. The training gave her permission to move into her heart and go into a place of intuitive knowledge; and it gave her the tools to create an abundance mindset.

We’re excited to announce that the Spirt Junkie Masterclass Digital cart is now open. If you feel the calling to do something different, to help people, to start your mission-driven business, the Spirit Junkie Masterclass Digital is for you. You’ll learn the tools to live your highest purpose, make a positive impact on the world AND earn for your great work. Plus, we’ve got bonuses worth over $1900 to give away when you sign up. There’s never been a better time to join the Spirit Junkie global community.

We’re so happy to welcome Heather Fantin back on the podcast. Heather was a guest for our New Year’s Special episode where she shared her tips on how to step into love. If you’ve not listened to it yet, check it out and discover her inspiring healing story.

Heather is a Spirit Junkie and Spiritual Breakthrough Coach who helps clients heal their relationship with themselves so that they can make lasting positive change and start living their soul’s purpose. She’s the founder of the Soul on Fire Retreat and the Inner Circle Group, where you can get tools and support for your own transformation.

If you’ve been thinking, dreaming or meditating about your perfect life but something is holding you back, it’s time for the Spirit Junkie MasterClass Digital. And we’re excited to announce that the cart is finally open! Maybe you’re not even sure what you want to do, you just sense something’s not quite right, that there must be “more to life than this.” That is the call to do something different and to follow your passion. That is the call to step into action.

Sure, it can be scary; transformational times can feel like chaos. Think about the caterpillar. It has to dissolve into a transformational soup before emerging as a beautiful butterfly.  In the same way, you have to surrender to the flow of the universe and trust that the transformation will happen and that you will be guided to the right teachers.

Mindset is everything, because your mindset creates your experience. When you are in a place of transformation, when you want to make changes, being in a place of surrender is the most powerful thing you can do. Let go of the conditioning that is holding you back. Here are Heather’s tips to release negative beliefs and step into your transformative power:

•    Step 1: Awareness – become clear about what your beliefs are, and where they come from. Journal about them.
•    Step 2: Verify – ask yourself “is it true?” “who am I when I think this thought?” “am I willing to see it differently, with love?”
•    Step 3: Let go – surrender the belief to the lens of guidance (check out Heather’s guided meditations)
•    Step 4: Evidence – create an evidence journal and collect evidence that the opposite is true.
•    Step 5: Experience the emotions related to those beliefs, allow the emotions to come up so you can release them.
•    Step 6: Forgive. Forgive others and forgive yourself.
•    Step 7: Create a new empowering story.
•    Step 8: Make a powerful positive manifestation statement
•    Step 9: Daily aligned right action – what step can you take today that will bring you closer to your goals?

What does Heather have to say about the Spirit Junkie Masterclass? Tune into your heart. If you’re questioning whether or not you should do it, there’s a part inside you that knows. And if you’re listening to this Podcast, you are being called to rise up in your own life, find your unique gift and share it with the world. We need more light workers on the planet. The Spirit Junkie Masterclass will guide you through that process. Come be a part of a community of people who are making an incredible difference in the world. Say yes to the journey, the universe will figure out the how. And this is no ordinary training. It combines ethereal spiritual tools with practical business tools. Want to live a miraculous life? Spirit Junkie Masterclass is for you. So do yourself and the world a favor, and step into your higher calling—because how you show up ripples out into the world. Plus we’re giving away amazing bonuses worth over $1,900 when you sign up!

Childhood sexual trauma is a taboo topic that is rarely discussed openly. As a result, millions of people globally suffer in silence, repressing their feelings and memories, and carrying guilt, shame and anger within themselves. We lock our pain away deep within our brains, we naturally want to reject it. But attempting to hold these feelings in, or pretend they don’t exist, doesn’t work—the pain simply finds another way to come out, through addiction, lashing out, disease. We need to see the trauma, feel it, talk about it, release it. In order to completely heal, we need to fully embrace and accept our past pain, and be grateful for it. It is when we can find the gratitude for our challenges, that we can truly rise up and help others heal.

Toni Lewis is a Spirit Junkie, successful entrepreneur, blogger and mother, with an incredible healing story. She experienced sexual trauma at a young age, went through therapy, and assumed it was all resolved. Except it wasn’t. A few years ago, she hit rock bottom. She was exhausted, unable to control her tiredness, too busy and stressed out with her business and her family, not eating properly. But underneath all of that, at the very core, was her trauma. It was a wake-up call.

Even at a young age, Toni had the sense that what she was experiencing would help her to help other people living through the same thing. After taking Levels 1 and 2 of Gabby’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass, she’s doing exactly that. As an active member of New Zealand’s health and wellness community, Toni helps people to move beyond their limiting beliefs, step into their power and heal their trauma. Watch out for her upcoming book, a memoir of her journey that will include healing tools and strategies. Go to her website and sign up to be the first to know when it’s ready, and to read her inspiring blog. You can also join her private Facebook group, Spiritual Home with Toni Lewis, a safe space and beautiful community where you can talk about your trauma and receive support.

For Toni, taking the Spirit Junkie Masterclass Levels 1 and 2 was totally transformational. She wasn’t sure why she was there. But she had an unshakeable sense that she had to be there. She travelled two days to get to New York from New Zealand, but when she walked into the workshop, she felt like she’d come home—she was in a roomful of people just like her. After the training, ideal clients started calling, and the money started coming in. From near bankruptcy, her family construction company is now multi-million company.

We’re super excited to announce that the 3rd video in Gabby’s free Spirit Junkie Mini Video Series is now LIVE: The Number One Way to Stand Out and Make an Impact Doing What You Love. Check it out! This one ROCKS, it will teach you how to make publicity and marketing FUN (instead of scary), and how to make an impact and create a movement. Gabby will share her secret method for standing out and being heard. 

And you only have to wait a few more days before we tell you all the details how you can join the Spirit Junkie Digital Masterclass, and how you can get bonuses worth over $1,900! Make sure you listen to our bonus episode on Friday June 23rd!

What are your beliefs about money? What’s your story? Is there never enough? Are you forever trying to keep up? Do you overspend? Does retail therapy rule your life? Do you feel guilty earning money? Does money not grow on trees?Whether we’re poor, rich, middle class, most of us have a money story running against us. And this story rules what happens with our finances.

Karla Kueber spent 14 years as a teacher. She’d done everything right; college, good job, bought a house… Then she woke up one day and thought “Is this it?” She wasn’t doing what really made her happy: travelling, spending time with family and friends. Life doesn’t have to be this hard. We were not created to be slaves to the dollar. We are meant to enjoy life… to really live. Now, she teaches on her own terms, and she’s swapped course textbooks for wealth building and emotional inner work. Karla’s mission is to help you do the inner work so that your outer world aligns and you can live a life of true financial and emotional freedom.

Like the other beautiful souls we’re interviewing for this Spirit Junkie Podcast Series, Karla is a Spirit Junkie—and is still on the high from her Level 1 course. Thanks to her training, she was able to heal herself from the inside out, and create her dream life. The Spirit Junkie movement is a community of people hell bent on bringing love and light into the world. And it isn’t just for mission-driven businesses, it will change your entire life. This training will transform your world. If you have a message to share with the world, the Spirit Junkie Masterclass will teach you how you can free yourself from financial and emotional blocks, and allow you to share your healing story. That’s how you make a positive impact on the world.

If you want to be part of a movement that is raising the collective consciousness of the world, good news! On the 23rd June, we’ll give you all the details on how you can join the Spirit Junkie community. Plus, we’ve got some amazing bonuses on offer when you sign up for the Spirit Junkie Masterclass Digital.

And we’re so excited to announce that the second video in Gabby’s free Spirit Junkie Video Series is now available online! Today’s video is about the three major blocks to abundance—we need to overcome our beliefs about abundance and work. This is a total GAME CHANGER. Gabby will bust the myth that it isn’t spiritual to earn for your great work, something we all struggle with. The video will give you a step by step guide to bring purpose to your career – whether you’re a spirit-preneur or in a corporate job. Go and enjoy it now!

Gabrielle has been a self-proclaimed spirit junkie for around 12 years. At 25, she hit rock bottom. Working in PR, she had a fast-paced city lifestyle, and used relationships, workaholism and alcoholism to run from her fears. But rock bottom was a great awakening. She made a commitment to get sober in 2005, and began to heal herself spiritually and emotionally. Gabby realized it was part of her life’s mission to share what she was living and learning. Spirit Junkie was born.

There’s a lot of fear around doing what you love and getting paid for it—maybe that’s what’s holding you back from fully diving into your mission-driven business. But right now, the world doesn’t need another procrastinator: the world needs transformational leaders. Yes, you! Your unique healing story is your unique power; the pain you went through is an opportunity to learn and grow and give you the tools to help others. Your healing story could save lives. It is your responsibility to share it as a gift to the world. And you mustn’t be afraid to accept abundance for your talents.

This is why we’re so excited to share Gabby’s free mini video series. This is an introduction to what the Spirt Junkie Masterclass Training looks like. So if you’re a Mindful, Spiritual, or Wellness Entrepreneur, want to live your purpose, do the work that you feel moved by, feel empowered to get out and shine your light, AND be unapologetic about it, then check out the first of these free videos: 3 Steps to Own Your Confidence and Take Action Now. Plus, watch out for the next two videos coming soon: The 3 Major Blocks to Your Abundance & How to Fix Them, and The Number One Way to Stand Out & Make an Impact Doing What You Love.

You can change someone’s life. It’s not just about having an amazing career, but about how can you be of service to a world that’s suffering and needs more light workers. Once you make that decision, everything falls into place to help you help others. It’s time for you to shine.

Keep listening because we’re going to be providing tons of extra episodes and content to help you live your dreams! Tips from Spirit Junkies on getting paid for doing what you love, how to publish a book, how to create digital courses for passive revenue, how to start a podcast and get your message out into the world, plus inspiring healing stories from people who have completely changed their lives.

OCD, panic disorder, general anxiety disorder, depression. It was a dark time for Allison. On the outside she was a party animal. On the inside, she was a mess, suffering in silence. Until one day she realized this anxiety was separating her from everything she wanted to do.

Allison found the Spirit Junkie community by chance, and it has been life-changing. She suddenly stopped seeing her anxiety as something that held her back. She began seeing it as her greatest feature. And then everything changed. Now she’s on a mission, to help women free themselves from anxiety and live to their fullest, happiest potential. She wanted to create what she needed when she was really struggling: the Don’t Freak Out Podcast was born.

The Spirit Junkie movement is a global community of people on a mission to elevate each other and infuse love into everything they do, sparked by Gabriel Bernstein’s book Spirit Junkie. Through masterclasses and workshops, you are encouraged to share your story, let go of “imposter syndrome”, see your true value and potential, and dive head first into your dream life so that you can help others to heal and rise up.

To anyone who feels called to Gabby’s digital masterclass, Allison has two words: “DO IT! It’s food for your soul.” As a Spirit Junkie, wherever you are in the world, you have a tribe, a supportive sister (and brother)-hood of like-minded souls.

Now more than ever we need to stand up, share our story, and follow our dream of a mission-driven business. We’ve been born at a revolutionary time in history and consciousness; the world is wounded, there’s division and suffering; we need to step up, make a change, and spread the message of love.

Listen to your soul’s call—it will change every single area of your life. The Spirit Junkie Digital Masterclass is one of the greatest things you can do. Get out of your own way, and create a life that you are psyched to wake up for. Today is the first day of the rest of your amazing, ecstatic life.

When you eat the whole plant, you’re getting the whole deal. That’s why we find so many healing plants in nature. Interestingly, almost every pharmaceutical medicine has its roots in nature. But modern medicine extracts one compound and turns it into pill form (with undesirable side effects). When you eat a whole plant however, you’re getting all the other nutrients working synergistically together to heal your body. Food Heals favorites Joy and Jay are passionate about whole tonic herbs. From that passion, Jing Slingers were born.

Joy is a badass cop turned anti-aging superfood master. Jay is a yogi and tonic herbalist with over 50,000 tonic elixirs to his name. Together they create cleverly conscious comfort food that’s as good as your granny’s banana bread with the added benefits of supercharging your health all the way to your cells. (We tried their superfood caramel and can testify to this – best. Caramel. EVER).

Since they were last on the show, the Jing Slingers have been working on a tonic to rival all tonics. Most modern diseases result from a dysfunction of the mitochondria, our cells’ power-producers. These are the molecules responsible for our core life energy. But we live in concrete jungles, breathe in polluted air, are bombarded by wifi radiation, drink chemical water—our cells are overwhelmed. They need a detox tonic. Enter the DNA Detox, an aqueous zeolight solution that penetrates deep into the cells’ mitochondria and eliminates environmental toxins, heavy metals, and even BPA’s. A next level solution to the next level toxicity we are dealing with.

But that’s not all, they’ve also moved back to nature. At their retreat, Waterstone in North Carolina, you can experience life away from wifi signals, polluted air, and stress, and enjoy forest bathing, foraging, and of course, Joy and Jay’s mind-blowing culinary delights. We’ll definitely be going :-)

Marina Yanay-Triner is the soul behind Soul in the Raw, a website dedicated to helping people go vegan in a sane, healthy, and delicious way.

Marina’s journey towards a raw vegan lifestyle began when she witnessed her mom’s healing transformation. Marina’s mom had interstitial cystitis, a chronic bladder disorder that left her unable to live a normal life. Doctor after doctor prescribed pills and injections but nothing worked. Taking matters into her own hands, she went on a 28-day water fast, before transitioning to a raw vegan lifestyle. She completely healed herself.

Witnessing her mother’s amazing recovery made Marina want to reconnect with her body. In high-school, she’d been sexually assaulted by her boyfriend. This caused Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which affected her digestion and emotions. But when she got into raw plant-based food, she was able to heal her physical and emotional trauma.  

Marina set up Soul in the Raw to show vegans and wannabe vegans how delicious and flavorful raw plant-based food can be. It’s not just about being vegan or gluten free, it’s about eating whole, plant-based, unprocessed, natural foods! Sign up to her online course and discover how to go vegan, improve your digestion and make delicious raw foods!

Before going vegan, Nicole Derseweh wanted to travel the world and taste every cheese imaginable. But her health was suffering. As a fitness model, her body looked healthy, but it hid a worrying truth: her high protein diet was stressing out her gall bladder and liver, and her blood pressure was through the roof. With her grandma fighting cancer, and other members of her family unwell, Nicole knew something was wrong. She began looking at her diet.

It took a year between watching her first documentary (Earthlings) to converting to 100% plant-based. The journey was tough, but it was worth it. As soon as she gave up dairy, her heath transformed. But her recovery went deeper than just the physical. Nicole had struggled with anorexia in high school. While she overcame the behaviors by becoming a fitness model, the self-loathing thoughts were still there. When she became vegan, those thoughts disappeared.

Choosing to go vegan was such an empowering and positive decision that it healed her psyche as well as her physical health. And now Nicole is dedicated to inspiring newbie and wannabe vegans with delicious plant-based food that can tempt even the most dedicated carnivore.

Check out Nicole’s YouTube channel for recipes and tutorials to veganize your dishes and live sustainably.

Sarah was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at 28. She was told she would never have her own children. She went straight to the fertility clinic, and put her name on a list for a donor egg. She was lucky enough to conceive, and now has two beautiful children.

But her health got worse: sinusitis, colds, yeast infections, headaches, vertigo. Later, while studying health coaching, she discovered that she had a food intolerance. As soon as she eliminated allergens from her diet, all her health issues went away. Could these food intolerances have caused her ovarian failure? It’s hard to be 100% sure, but Sarah is now on a mission to let couples know there is a lot they can do with nutritional therapy to improve their fertility.

Check out her 3-day fertility diet challenge. Want to know how fertile you might be? Take her fertility quiz!

How can we balance a healthy lifestyle and living life? Sarah has the answers.

Kristie Reeves’s new show, Rebel Hearts, is all about empowering the rebels of this world to make a change. There’s so much negativity and wars and crime going on in the world today. But at the same time things are changing for the better. The change makers are stepping up. A wave of people making a positive difference. You can catch Kristie’s inspiring show on Universal Broadcasting Network.

You go to the doctor because you think they have the answers, but these days doctors aren’t looking at what’s causing the illness. They’re much more interested in giving you a pill. So you take the pill, then you take another pill to counteract the side effects of the first pill. But there IS another option: nutrition, acupuncture, spirituality, emotional work, changing your lifestyle. While their background differs—Suzy was brought up on green juices and vitamins, while Allison grew up eating the standard American diet—they are both passionate advocates of a plant-based diet.

Are you following your dreams? If everyone on this planet did what they wanted, the world would be such a happy place. We wouldn’t even need to compete with each other, because we all have a unique energy and unique gifts… we all have a unique soul song. Whatever you want to do, do it. If you want to sing, if you want to write, if you want to be a parent… do what brings you joy every day. That’s how we flourish.

If we can do a little thing every single day, we can change the world!

Find out about what inspired Kristie Reeves in Episode 107.

Relationships. They are complicated things. Have we put too much expectation onto marriage? People used to get married to carry on the family farm or form new family links. Now, thanks to fairytales and Disney, we expect some perfect thing, to be swept off our feet, to never argue. But in fact, it isn’t the long heart to hearts at 2am that keep a couple together, but rather those everyday moments—going shopping together, taking out the trash so that your partner doesn’t have to, holding each other’s hand during a movie. You need to learn your own love language.

Perhaps because of all the expectations we place on marriage, divorce statistics are through the roof. Leanne Linsky is one of those statistics. Married at just 22 to her first serious boyfriend, Leanne found herself divorced three years later. A few years later, she followed the same pattern: married again, and divorced within a few years. She was crushed. But she was also determined that it would not be the end of her.

After her second divorce, Leanne lay, in a fetal position, on her bedroom floor – she knew she had to make major changes. But she didn’t know what she wanted. Married so young, she didn’t know who she was. Determined to step into her true self, she started saying YES to everything. Her life began to shift. She felt a new strength. She vowed that no matter what she did, she was not going to grow old, with nine cats, bitter and hateful of men.

One of the things Leanne said a big YES to was standup comedy. Once she started taking the classes, she was hooked. Joining the two things she knew best, comedy and divorce, Leanne launched Life Lafter Divorce two years ago, offering improv classes to fellow divorcees. Improv is about not caring, it’s about letting go—you never know what’s coming. If you try to control it, it fails…. A bit like a marriage! Leanne has created a safe space where people can let go of their pain, realize they are not alone, and use laughter to heal. Her podcast interviews a variety of guests about their divorce experiences and “haha” moments. Check out her website for her next improv workshops!

According to the stats, we’re eating on average two portions of fruits and vegetables a day…. And this includes ketchup and potato fries! Truth is, for optimum health, we need to be eating more like between 5 and 10. Sounds like a lot to chew? This is where blending comes in. You can throw it all in a blender and drink your veggies!

Tarashaun always knew she wanted to work for herself. She began her entrepreneurial journey by selling jewelry on eBay. When she bought a high-power blender, she knew she had to share its magic with others. Smoothies, soups, ice cream, grinding grains—the versatility of this machine motivated Tarashaun to launch BlenderBabes and inspire people to make more than just smoothies. If you’re confused about blending, BlenderBabes is the site for you. She takes blenders through rigorous testing and offers honest reviews to help you choose your perfect kitchen companion.

Tarashaun also has an incredible healing story to share. She overcame a decade of disordered eating and wants to share her experience to help others. So many of us have an unhealthy relationship with food. For Tarashaun, reading The Secret opened her eyes to how she could use self-love and acceptance to heal. An eating disorder doesn’t have to last forever—it is possible to move forward from it, and self-love is an essential part of that.

If you want to dive into health, why not give Tarashaun’s Blender Cleanse a go? It’s a five-day program that helps you prepare your body for the cleanse, and provides enough nutrients and diversity to keep you satiated. Unlike a juice cleanse, you won’t be “hangry.”

One in two people in the USA suffer from a chronic illness—365 million people. Amy Kurtz was one of them. She understands the loneliness that comes with a debilitating condition, and the frustration of going to doctor after doctor being offered nothing but pills.

At 14, Amy’s life changed dramatically. She bent down to pick up a book, and felt a shooting pain up her spine. And this pain simply didn’t go away. For ten years, she took the heavy-duty pain killers and muscle relaxants she was prescribed. Then, at 25, during a trip abroad, she picked up a parasite that tipped her body’s balance completely. She gained 30 pounds in 30 days. She couldn’t keep any food down, and she couldn’t go to the bathroom. She was bedridden for a month. Specialists told her food allergies didn’t matter, and kept prescribing antibiotics and pills. Finally, a doctor told her that her colon would never work, and she might as well have it removed. This was rock bottom.

But Amy didn’t give up. She knew she had to do something to help herself. She stopped eating gluten. Just two days after, her pain disappeared, as though it had never existed. She embarked on a holistic healing journey, empowering herself with the knowledge to heal her mind, body and spirit. She’s now a certified health coach, Pilates instructor, author and speaker.

Chronic conditions are often invisible – people don’t see them, and those suffering rarely speak about their illness for fear of being belittled or ridiculed. Amy woke up one day and realized she had to write a book and share her story. She wanted to create a collection of information to help people with chronic illness rebalance their bodies and move into health. Her book Kicking Sick is a collection of healing stories and Glow Warrior strategies to heal the spiritual, emotional and nutritional. Written to spark a new way of thinking, Kicking Sick helps tailor your lifestyle to transform you from the inside out and get you back into balance.

Self-improvement – once a women-centric activity, now more and more men are showing up in yoga class, in meditation and in holistic health. Justin Stenstrom is at the forefront of this exciting movement.

Nine years ago, Justin went through a huge transformational period. He freed himself from depression anxiety and panic attacks, and began helping others overcome the same struggle. Elite Man Magazine was born. The website is a collection of advice for men, to help them gain confidence and become true gentlemen. His podcast interviews the best minds from the business, dating, health, fitness and social worlds.

Depression is characterized by regret of the past; anxiety is fear of the future. Either way, you’re not in the present moment. The key to overcoming both these mental conditions is getting back to the now. Justin’s got nine simple steps to help you do just that:

1.    Realize you’re not going crazy. Depression happens to most of us at one time or another.
2.    Use a combination of hypnosis, meditation or yoga (Justin’s favorites are Eckhart Tolle, Paul McKenna and Dr. Andrew Dobson)
3.    Live in the present moment.
4.    Exercise, move around
5.    Get enough sleep! We’re typically under-sleeping, but this increases our stress, causes cortisol levels to go through the roof and decreases serotonin.
6.    Improve your diet—good fats, complex carbs, healthy protein—optimize what you’re putting into your body.
7.    Take supplements—one of the best anti-depressant supplements is magnesium.
8.    Socialize! We need human connection to fully thrive.
9.    Find a purpose in life. Whether it’s a hobby, career change or following a passion. Find the thing that makes you jump out of bed every day, and go after it.

Mel Bee became interested in nutrition after she overcame bulimia and depression in her early twenties. When she transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle she realized just how much food can contribute both to disease, and to wellbeing. After a decade of research into detoxing and holistic plant-based nutrition, she’s on a mission to spread the word. Leaving behind her 9 to 5, Mel got into freelance writing and set off traveling in an old VW campervan—with some funny tales to tell! As a detox coach, she helps women step into vibrant health by detoxing their cupboards and their minds from junk foods and junk thoughts.

Speaking of rubbish foods, did you know that over 75% of “edible” products in supermarkets are considered “non-food” items – yep, they’re THAT processed. The situation seems better in Europe, but even there, junk foods and associated diseases like diabetes are on the rise. The dire food situation seems to be matched by the scary political and environmental issues we’re facing.

So how do we deal with it? We send out love. That’s the only energy powerful enough to bring about positive change in the face of so much darkness. We’re not powerless. Each of us can choose to make every decision with love –be it the food we eat, the brands we buy, the way we behave towards others. We can make a difference every day. For Mel, this is how we create a greener, fairer, happier world.

Our guest today is vegan eco-entrepreneur Charlie Fyffe, founder of Charlie’s Brownies, an organic, ethical company that makes dairy-free, refined-sugar-free, gluten-free brownies Discover how Charlie followed his dreams, and how he helps others do the same.

Our guest today has been an entrepreneur since his early teens. Always a wheeler-dealer, Charlie Fyffe would sell Gatorade and give car rides in high school to make extra money. Having always loved brownies, selling them seemed a natural progression, and Charlies Brownies was born. But seeing that some people couldn’t enjoy the brownies made Charlie want to create a product that was not only delicious, but healthy and ethical as well. Charlie’s Brownies now makes organic, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free, vegan cupcakes (and we tasted them – they will blow you away). Charlie’s even working on a lower GI version for diabetics. And what about “special” brownies? You’ll have to listen to the episode for our take on that!

But Charlie does more than simply make amazing cakes. He also helps to revitalize the health and eating habits of underserved communities. This can be incredibly challenging in communities where there are no health food shop and where the nicest building houses a fast food restaurant. But Charlie is undeterred—there are ways to be plant-based on a budget. Charlie also gives talks about entrepreneurship, to encourage young people to follow their dreams: there is an alternative to the dead-end job option!

Food is everything for Charlie, he loves to teach people how what they eat and what they invest in affects them, their communities, the farmers and the earth. We have a choice every time we eat: we need to invest in food that is renewable, sustainable, and socially responsible. Food that supports the planet and conserves the earth for future generations: Plant-based food.

You can make big changes every day, through the food you choose to buy and eat. And for Charlie, this sustainable way of life can be delicious.

Come and check out Charlie’s Brownies at the LA Vegan Street Fair on 26th March where he’ll be launching three new mystery products!

People go vegan for different reasons. Some of us are drawn to a plant-based diet because of the health implications, some of us can’t stand the thought of the cruelty of industrial farming. Jessica was inspired to go vegan after a trip to Sea World. Realizing just how unhappy the dolphins were, Jessica knew she had to change her lifestyle.

Tired of being sent to steak houses by the vegan apps she was using, Jessica began designing her own. When she saw how many vegan restaurants there were in LA, she had a brain wave: to gather them all together in a street fair and spread the vegan love to as many people as possible. Jessica’s mission is to plant a seed, and create more vegans by making plant-based food affordable and accessible.

The Vegan Street Fair is in its 3rd year and this year will be bigger than ever—the best thing? It’s free, family friendly, and a fantastic way for you to try bite-sized portions of many different vegan delicacies.

It can be tough to navigate our crazy world in a healthy and holistic way. Here are some of Jessica’s tips for doing it with grace:
•    Do what you can – progress over perfection.
•    Find a community of like-minded people, who are on the same journey.
•    Be ok with screwing up – don’t try to be perfect.
•    Don’t want to give up cheese? Check out Miyokos and Yvonne’s Vegan Kitchen for the best vegan alternatives.
•    Check out Vegan Street Fair!

LA’s Vegan Street Fair takes place on 26th March between 11am and 7pm. AND there’s a beer garden! For only $40 you can get a VIP pass, which gets you front of line access to hundreds of vegan stalls. Join us!

Our first question is from Linda, who wants to know which green powders we recommend, and how to choose a high quality brand.
Soils are over-farmed and the resulting fruits and vegetables don’t contain as many nutrients as they once did. Which means that, even if you eat a rainbow every day, you still need to supplement some essential nutrients. We would recommend Vitaforce. The founder and owner of the brand actually created this powder to heal her own body. Allison has been using it for years; it contains all the greens, vitamins and minerals you need, and it doesn’t taste like garbage.

Our second question comes from Belle and was posted in our Facebook Group. Belle wants to know our thoughts on CBD. Is it a fad, or a healing tool?
Suzy is involved in the green revolution currently occurring in California—CBD is definitely not a fad! CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component of hemp, and it is very healing. CBD interacts with our own cannabidiol receptors and helps with pain management, insomnia, anxiety, Alzheimer’s and tumor reduction, among other things. It also packs a more powerful antioxidant punch than Vitamin C! For the science behind the claims, check out www.projectcbd.org. CBD is completely nontoxic and non-addictive. But as with every product, some brands are better than others—choose one that uses high doses of high quality CBD extract.

Unfortunately, the government has now got a patent on CBD, despite the fact this is a completely natural substance. What’s more, the DEA has classified it as a Category 1 controlled substance, despite the fact it will not get you high. But there is a growing movement towards acceptance of this healing plant. An increasing number of studies show the therapeutic benefits of both CBD and THC, and more than half the country’s states have legalized the medical use of marijuana. Want more info, reach out to Suzy on out FB group!

Finally, our third question comes from Sabrina. She wants to know why teeth become prone to cavities, and what we can do about it.
This is a topic we’re incredibly passionate about. Some dentists just drill for the sake of it, even when there are no cavities. But even when cavities ARE present, you don’t necessarily need to get a filling. When you break a bone, your body heals itself. Bones can regenerate, and while teeth are a little different to bone, they’re very similar. According to Dr. Robert Nara, your teeth can heal themselves, all you need to do is use the right tools. If you have enough calcium and magnesium in your diet and in your saliva, you can heal your teeth. Check out Dr. Nara’s book How to be Dentally Self Sufficient. Suzy’s favorite tooth-care tool is baking-soda tooth powder, because it alkalizes your mouth and helps keep your mouth super clean. But she’s got a few other tips too!

Tantra may be the “in” thing right now, but it is about so much more than just sex, though orgasms can be a perk! Tantra is not a collection of sexual positions; it is not the Karma Sutra. Rather, it is a way of life. In fact, the word Tantra means to weave, to expand consciousness. It’s more about holding space for your partner and listening than it is about contortionist bedroom acrobatics!

Elise Carr, a former model and journalist, traded in her high heels to dive into sacred spirituality and sexuality. She’s now recognized as Australia’s best Empowerment Mentor. She even trained with the White Tigresses in the art of jade egg practices. Elise is a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Reiki Master and Esoteric Tantra Practitioner. She wants to encourage women to work with their yoni to reconnect with the sacred feminine, and release the shame that is so often associated with that part of our bodies.

We carry so much negative energy around our yoni – we have forgotten the beauty that is there. It is time to open up that conversation, reconnect with our sensuality. It is ok for us to express and to love ourselves – this is how we heal. Tantra is about learning who we really are. It is the meshing of the physical and the spiritual. It is about self-expression, union, love and connection.

Let’s face it, losing weight is tough. Making any kind of drastic lifestyle change can seem daunting and difficult. But the alternative is often scarier.

Tim Kaufman was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a condition characterized by hyper mobile joints. His joints were so loose they would simply pop out of their sockets. After a failed operation to fix the issue, Tim became addicted to prescription pain medication. He was also addicted to food. Moving less and less, eating more and more, the weight piled on. He lost his lust for life, he was depressed, and used food and prescription drugs as an escape.

After two close relatives passed away from cancer, Tim knew he had to do something. He applied for bariatric surgery. But his health was so bad that his doctor refused to sign it off. He had to take a different approach. He began making small changes. Cutting out red meat. Choosing lower-fat cheeses. Then one day, he watched Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. Before the credits rolled, he’d ordered a juicer. A 30 day juice fast later, Tim was well and truly on his way towards better health. But it was Forks over Knives that really gave him a new lease of life.

From being unable to get up from his chair, Tim has gone on to climb mountains, complete 100-mile bike rides, run a marathon. He’s even training for Iron Man. He freed himself from prescription medication and is the fittest he’s ever been. His whole family has felt the benefits. Swapping the buffalo wings and diet pepsi for a plant based diet saved his life. He now helps other people transition to a healthier way of life through his blog, Fat Man Rants.

How can a billionaire, who lives in a penthouse, who has never had to work in his life, who has never had to choose between paying the rent and buying food, who has never had to think about how to pay for healthcare, be a man of the people? How can he possibly relate to the lives of normal Americans? How can a business man who bankrupted six of his businesses, and whose net worth would be superior had he simply put his inheritance in a bank, be classed as a great business brain? How can a man who’s made no bones about being sexist, and repeatedly made shockingly derogatory comments about women have had any kind of female following? How did he get voted in?

He talks a good game, that’s how. His rhetoric was appealing to the masses, those who’d been underserved by previous administrations, those tired of the same old statements and lack of change. The “alternative” facts he sprinkled into his speeches, and the questionable “truths” his campaign manager shared probably also helped (incidentally, check out this YouTube clip of Kelly Ann Conway doing Chicago – hilarious!)

But if we look at the solid facts, immigrants are not taking our jobs (and ALL Americans, except for Native Indians, are immigrants anyway!). A wall won’t fix the job crisis or the immigration crisis. The “swamp” isn’t being “drained”, only filled with more people who have no understanding of, or interest in, what people really need. Affordable care is the same thing as Obamacare. And the last thing the world needs is more racism and outdated views about women!

Ok, so what can we do? How do we fight lies? How can we shift the story? We have to start the conversation and speak the truth. We’re seeing more and more women rise up and begin to get involved in politics—let’s stand up and be counted ladies! In the words of Delores Huerta: “Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person is a potential activist, every minute is a chance to change the world.” Let’s not allow fear and anger to stop us living life. No matter what is going on politically, we are in control of our lives. You can be whatever you want it to be – don’t let anybody stop you!

You could eat all the right things and exercise every day, but if your mind believes you’re sick, you will be. On the other hand, if you believe that you are healthy, you can heal anything. Just like Miracle Man Morris Goodman says: man becomes what he thinks.

Khristee Rich fell ill when she was in college. She had chronic fatigue, brain fog, she was bed-ridden much of the time—she couldn’t work, go on dates, socialize, even write an email. But no one knew how to treat her. Doctors didn’t even believe she was ill, stating she was simply “depressed” and “stressed”. One doctor even told her she simply had to accept that she would be sick for the rest of her life. Khristee tried everything, from reiki to qi gong and acupressure, but nothing worked.

Finally, she was diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity—with blood levels of mercury and lead so high she should have been paralyzed or brain damaged. Unwilling to go through potentially fatal medical chelation therapy, Khristee began researching natural chelators. Using a combination of plant foods, supplements and visualization meditations, she freed herself of heavy metals in just one month.

Khristee knew she had a higher purpose than just being sick. She’s now a Visibility and Confidence Coach, and helps entrepreneurs boost their confidence so they can shine. Because when you show up for yourself, you can show up for others. Sign up at The Dancing Curtain for a free PDF: 5 Easy Ways to Boost Confidence and Get More Clients.
