What fun to have a catch-up chat with my lifelong friend Jen Weigel over the air, as we discussed how to Make Wellness Fun through a deeper understanding of your own body, referred to as the “n=1” approach.
What works for you may not work for others, and vice versa. Jen and I explore how to increase longevity, energy, and health in fun ways.
I love the mission of Jen’s show, which is all about increasing your own vibration so you can attract the best in life.
Jen shared her experience with mold sensitivity, which turned out to be validated by the genetic testing I ran for her ahead of the show (increased sensitivity to mold due to HLA genes/SNPs).
We discussed that an advantage of genetic testing is that it can be validating to an individual who is experiencing symptoms and might not understand why they, and not others, experience sensitivities or reactions. Jen had experienced a difficult road to recovery from her mold exposure.
We also discussed why customized genetic information can lead to customized lifestyle interventions with incredibly positive results. I provided some specific examples from clients I have worked with over the years.
Jen discussed the “epidemic” of stress, fear, and overwhelm.
We discussed a few strategies that happen to be “internal epigenetic modifiers” including meditation, mindfulness, prayer, energy work, and other healing modalities. A key issue is our ability to “process” emotions rather than sweep them under the rug or deny them. For processing emotions, I mention a modality I’m quite fond of called Brainspotting.
I also mention my current obsession with Ziva meditation. I love the recipe of mindfulness, meditation, AND manifestation.
