Holiday Cravings Hey friends, the holidays are coming, and so are the holiday cravings. Am I right? So many clients and listeners find this time of year to be incredibly challenging for their human suits, their hearts, and even their spirits. Despite the joyful season, often we are overindulging in food and alcohol, overindulging in expectations and what others demand of us, overstressed and just plain worn out. This serves to significantly increase our inflammation and decrease our health and wellness. It’s the same for all but scales up when you are living with a chronic illness. So in today’s episode, we are going to talk about the holidays and food and cravings. About indulging in those things you wait all year long for in the least health-damaging way. (Next week we will talk about the energetic and emotional stress too.)

This serves to significantly increase our inflammation and decrease our health and wellness. It’s the same for all but scales up when you are living with a chronic illness. So in today’s episode, we are going to talk about the holidays and food and cravings. About indulging in those things you wait all year long for in the least health-damaging way. (Next week we will talk about the energetic and emotional stress too.)   Intro Welcome if this is your first time listening  - I’m Audrey Christie - I’m a functional and integrative nurse nutritionist and energy medicine practitioner. I help women start their very own Autoimmune Revolution so you can stop chasing symptoms and learn how to heal your body from autoimmune disease. Okay - so here’s the thing - I don’t care how good the book is or how phenomenal the supplement is - there is no quick fix for your health.
