Your Body Knows Best: Summary

In this “your body knows best” episode, FDNP Wendy Handy candidly shares her health struggles starting with her diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis and her journey through overcoming the illness. She talks about her relentless drive and perfectionist tendencies that led to ignoring her health symptoms and just pushing through despite feeling unwell. After various changes in her lifestyle and extensive tests, with a focus on removing toxicity and improper dietary habits from her life, Wendy managed to recuperate her health.

The conversation further reveals that Wendy becomes a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDNP). She uses her own health journey as a catalyst to help other women between ages 40 and 60 experiencing similar issues. 

Her grievances toward the traditional healthcare system for not considering the root causes of disease conditions comes out clearly. She desired a system that would work holistically, taking into account the unique individual circumstances and providing a better understanding of the body and how it functions.

In conclusion, Wendy exhorts the importance of prioritizing self-care and listening carefully to one’s body. She suggests that whilst being ambitious, it is equally critical to take out time for recovery and relaxation to maintain health and well-being.
