I'm dedicating this episode to the individuals globally who are suffering from lupus.

This message is vital for those of you needing to be seen and heard. So often those office visits can be impersonal and lacking empathy. 

This episode is controversial because I vehemently disagree with conventional medicine's approach to using band-aids for treating lupus without deeply investigating what triggered it to begin with. I discuss the myths that have been told to you for so long and today I hope to open your eyes.

This amazing interview with Dr. Valerie Rein, who has discovered Patriarchy Stress Disorder (PSD) and created the only science-backed system for helping women achieve their ultimate success, happiness, and fulfillment by healing the intergenerational trauma of oppression.

Her message is vital for women as a tool to empower us. It reveals the centuries of oppression and how it's still showing up in our daily lives. It's such an eye-opener!

This is truly an interview not to be missed. Dr. Rein shines a light on how we are still living this out today. It's also demonstrated in the burnout in women in a male-dominated industry. 

The wisdom bombs were dropping every minute! Tune in, you won't regret it!
