Could holistic health remedies be the answer to finding peace during pregnancy and motherhood?

After hearing about her father’s second cancer diagnosis back in the early 2000s, today’s guest, Kristy Rodriguez sprang into action, learning all she could about healing, not only her father’s body, but his mind and spirit as well.

After the birth of her first daughter, Kristy used this knowledge not only on herself but on her clients, helping them to heal and thrive throughout pregnancy and beyond. This is what led Kristy to founding Pure Nuture and to writing her book, Pure Nurture: A Holistic Guide to a Healthy Baby.

On today’s episode, Kristy is sharing this journey to holistic health, what motivates her to continue her work and what we can all do to bring ourselves back to a state of ease during our fertility, pregnancy and motherhood journeys.
