Episode 6 Description:

This is a short but BIG episode because I'm shifting gears. You might recall on my inaugural episode I said there was no agenda for the show. Well that all changes now. In this episode, I discuss the future of the podcast and my focus on functional health. Listen in as I get into my relationship with traditional Western medicine and the value of health that focuses on food as medicine and a system that works to reverse illness, promote health, and optimize function by addressing the underlying causes, symptoms, and imbalances of the interconnected biological networks. 

Show Notes:

  • WHO Definition of Health: Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

  • Functional Approach to Health: A foundation of food as medicine and provides a system that works to reverse illness, promote health and optimize function by addressing the underlying causes, the underlying symptoms, and imbalances of the interconnected biological network.

  • Health Care Providers in a Functional System - work in a system connecting with patients by developing a relationship; by promoting open communication that is rooted in empathy.

  • Functional Approach to Health - Patients Take Responsibility For Their Health

Thinking of our brain as the "easy button"... I talk about messiness and the difference between being a mess and being in a mess.  In this episode I explain what has me in North Carolina and that my family is in a mess right now.  I explain the meaning behind mind trash, and how you can acknowledge your mind trash and kindly move it out of the way.  You can be in a mess without being a mess yourself.

What other way is there to begin... Meet me, Emily Johnson as I share my story of going from breaking down to breaking through. I believe that when we feel broken down, we have a choice to make. We can choose to take negative, lonely energy and use it to create something beautiful, bold, and juicy. This is the first episode of a podcast three years in the making. This episode is a HEAVY episode but stick with us for future episodes because I am going to be having fun, helping this community, and talking with some incredibly inspiring guests.
