Got Self-Care?

The Importance of Self-Care

When is the last time you took a moment purely for yourself?

Turns out, having some time for self-care is one of the best things that you can do for your health and happiness. Contrary to popular belief, self-care is not selfish. Self-care is actually essential for all of us in our healing journey.

The challenge is that all too often we prioritize other things above self-care (ie: doing the dishes, laundry, going to work, cleaning the house, paying the bills, watching tv, spending time with others, etc…).

The good news is that there are small and powerful ways that you can take care of yourself in a better way, starting today. Relax, put your feet up, and enjoy one of the videos below.

In honor of your best health, we are sharing 5 of our favorite TED Talks related to self-care.


  1. Why we all need to practice emotional first aid by Guy Winch


  2. The power of vulnerability by Brene Brown


  3. All it takes is 10 mindful minutes by Andy Puddicombe


  4. Want to be happy? Be grateful by David Steindl-Rast


  5. How to make stress your friend by Kelly McGonigal

Can we make disease disappear?

I’ve found this to be TRUE many times in patients who use Functional Medicine to address the root causes of their illness.  

Watch how Dr. Rangan Chatterjee on TEDx Liverpool talk about How to Make Disease Disappear. His talk is testament to how our thinking around the concept of disease needs to change to help form a map for future healthcare.  We are  talking about diabetes, hypothyroid, asthma, anxiety disorder, clinical depression…

This will be FIRST of a series of videos that I will be sharing over the next month about some strong information on how to really reframe the way we think about chronic, illness, autoimmune disease, heart disease.
