Marie Arlen, a holistic coach, joins me on the podcast this week. Before she was drinking her daily green juice and attending self-development workshops, she was an overachiever working in an Ivy League School helping applicants achieve their own dream. Riddled with chronic stress and exhaustion from living a life on the go, she found her health rapidly declining.
During our conversation, she shares her courageous health journey and provides tangible steps to help you evaluate what you can do to be better in general and healthier specifically. Despite not being a doctor nor a dietician, Marie decided to go from a state of helplessness to one of someone who can thrive and regain control of her health.
Ten years leading up to leaving Columbia University, she was living with exhaustion, mood changes, skin issues, massive brain fog, and migraines. After years of being shuffled from doctor to doctor and thousands of dollars spent, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s.
With the constant bruises from getting blood drawn and the constant changes in medications with no relief, Marie realized enough was enough. She took her health into her own hands and became her own health advocate. After years of researching and trying different diets and programs, Marie has overcome the majority of the symptoms and now empower others to find their ultimate health so they can then achieve their goals. Simple shifts in eating habits, mindset, stress management, and eliminating toxins can and will rejuvenate health. Marie says: when we focus on what our bodies need, it can perform on the highest level. It becomes no longer about survival, but about thriving in all aspects of life. Because with health, we have it all.
Marie offers a reminder to be intentional with your time, your food, and your circle of support. And, her story is one that encourages us all to be our own advocate!! Figure out what is going to help you to take care of yourself. Don’t just cope with feeling less than vital. Look to solve it as best you can. Feel empowered, take action.
Marie just launched Drink to Health an e-book with smoothie, juice, and drink recipes that help increase energy, boost moods, and rejuvenate your health. She is also providing online group coaching set to launch in October for those looking to decrease toxins in their lives (body, home, relationships, mindset). This conversation is perfect for anyone who wishes they felt a heightened sense of vitality to crush their life goals and empower those around them to do the same too. We delve into a common sign of fatigue brain fog. Marie shared her personal journaling exercises that can help you to figure out your ideal healthy future self and how to no longer let anyone make you feel like a victim even if you are not a trained doctor. Do the exercises for 21-days and check in to let me know how you feel. You can go so in our complimentary Facebook group for podcast listeners. See the details below.
