Listening to Your Gut With Jason Wrobel

Jan 22, 2020

Watch Episode 58 with Jason Wrobel here:

In the past several decades, talking about veganism has often been met with discomfort, assumptions, and suspicion.

Or, like in the case of today’s guest, it was met with jokes that you might be in a cult.

The world is continuing to progress and plant-based diets are becoming more and more popular, but there still isn’t enough focus on the big picture of health.

In this episode, Dotsie and Alexandra are joined by Jason Wrobel, an author, chef, and podcast host who focuses on holistic mental health and emotional wellness.

Dotsie got to know Jason at the Remedy Retreat, a weekend of education and inspiration for people who are struggling to take control of their health where Dotsie and Jason both had the opportunity to speak.

Tune in and get to know more about Jason, his journey as a chef who had his own TV show, and how he won his battle over depression.

Balance Hormones, Eliminate Toxins with Functional Medicine Doc, Dr. Koz

Our guest today is functional medicine practitioner Dr. Peter Kozlowski, and for those who aren’t familiar with functional medicine, you’re in for a real treat. Dr. Koz practices getting to the root of disease rather than treating the symptoms while also addressing mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Doesn’t that make sense?
