How To Move Out of a Place of Helplessness & Hopelessness When It Comes To Our Health

with podcast guest

Ellie Thomas


Ellie Thomas is a Holistic Nutrition Consultant & Transformational Coach who provides support to her clients as they overcome the mental, emotional, and physical health barriers that are holding them back from living a life they always imagined for themselves. She believes that stabilizing and nourishing the body allows us to visit and heal deeper aspects of our being, and that true health goes beyond the food.

In this episode, we talk about something that I believe all women need to hear, which is that often times we have a tendency to get stuck in a place of helplessness or victimhood when it comes to our health but we can break out of that destructive mindset and take our power back and take control of our health, and live from that place a little more each day. Ellie shares the struggles she had with her health and how she ended up in a place of hopelessness and her journey to empowerment, the steps you can take to reframe how you think about your symptoms, how you can benefit from working with a coach, the cleansing power of your period, and so much more
