Show Notes

[3:01] Welcome to episode 40 of the Boom Vision podcast!

I’m excited to share today's interview with my new friend, Dr. Anna Esparham. I first heard Anna in a guest interview on our mutual friend, Heather Fischer-Page's show called The Integra Podcast.  My intuition was telling me to connect with Anna because I knew I had to have her on Boom Vision, and I'm so glad we connected through Heather.

As a brief background:

Dr. Anna Esparham, MD, and founder of Health Is PowHer, is a nationally-recognized physician who healed herself from multiple chronic conditions from near death to issues with chronic pain and autoimmune disease.  She is now a coach helping women heal themselves for good.

Dr. Anna hosts the Health Is PowHer's Podcast, empowering women to take back their health.  She has also conducted several research studies and is published In peer-reviewed medical journals.

[56:14] Final Thoughts

The biggest takeaway I got from today's interview is make yourself a top priority - invest in yourself, give yourself space and time, and connect with your higher self. 

Life can sometimes feel like it's pulling you in all directions, it may throw you some curves balls or roadblocks. If you prioritize your own health as a top priority in your life, if you can approach life with open curiosity, and start strengthening your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being this may help you shift from surviving to thriving.
