In this episode, I speak with Donna Stephens a Naturopathic and Homeopathic Doctor who spent the first 15 of her 30 year medical career in Clinical Research studying medicine with some of the top minds in the world. How her blend of homeopathic/Naturopathic medicine with the use of modern medicine helped her beat cancer. The value and benefits of botanicals and the developing practice of integrative or functional medicine. The gap between the science of medicine and the practice of medicine, and our need to look deeper to better understand our own chemistry (its not a one-size-fits all).  We dig a little into the need to zoom the lens out on our health and incorporate the impacts of mindset, how toxic thoughts and emotions negatively impact the body as well as stress on our body chemistry. Tools that can enable wellness such as supplementation and micro-circulation.

How the Podcast can Help You

On The Rest & Recovery Podcast, you will learn from some of the foremost professionals and experts on the best ways to help you rest & recover. My hope is that you can bring your best self to life in your fitness pursuits, marriage, or as a parent to ensure your one life is lived well. The idea of the podcast came from a personal mission to help bring my best self to all things in my life.

My initial goal was to improve on my fitness pursuits as an endurance runner. However, as I began to examine the various components of my life, I realized some of the challenges started with some bad habits dating back to my 20’s. I would just keep going to work, college, and into late nights with friends with little sleep or consideration for the effects it was having on my body, mind, and spirit. It would always catch up with me and I would end up sick. This didn’t really stop over the years…the burn-out…it just occurred for different reasons.
Yes, I matured…a little… yet now I was married and a growing family with 3 little girls, a corporate job and still trying to pursue endurance sport’s goals. Up until a few years ago, I burned out in every way possible - physically and emotionally and mentally to the point I went into a season of ambiguity, indifference under performance devolving into depression. Since then, I have been on a journey to reclaim my life for myself and my family. This helped me learn about a variety of influencers that can help enable the proper level of rest and recovery to ensure I could show up with strength and stability.

My hope is my personal discovery story, along with the people from all walks of life discussing the various approaches, will lead you to the proper rest and recovery. So join me in the journey to learn how to live this one life to the fullest!
