"Health is a journey; its not a destination". This is a central tenant and principle of holistic health. But what does this idea of holistic health add to our understanding of what it means to show up authentically and resiliently as who God's made us to be. Join Harmonize host Ruth Jefferson and Special Guest Sarah Gallander of the Wellness Matrix as they dive into these questions and more.
Could there be a powerful connection between faith and health? In this stimulating conversation, we uncover the profound influence of Scripture on our health journey. We dive headfirst into challenging themes such as spiritual warfare and community, drawing from the wisdom of passages such as those in Isaiah, Ecclesiastes, and 1 Peter. We also take a look at the reality that health can be a difficult subject in certain communities of color due to the lasting effects of historical medical experimentation.
Sarah's story is made even more powerful not just because of her advocacy but also because of her own experience with walking down the challenging path of Lyme Disease while navigating the world of Big Pharma. Today, she shares her personal journey with us, providing insights into the shortcomings of conventional medicine, and the role of nutrition and holistic health in helping to bolster its practice and in helping you to take ownership of your story. Together, we explore how faith can be a pillar of strength in our struggles and how God's promise of renewal carries us through the darkest valleys.
Lastly, we delve into the pressing issue of mistrust in medicine and the dire need for patient-centered care. Join us for this enlightening conversation that interweaves health, faith, and authenticity.
