Biohacking Birth, Babies, & Homeschooling Kids w/ Wellness Mama AKA Katie Wells #221

Biohacking Birth, Babies, & Homeschooling Kids w/ Wellness Mama AKA Katie Wells #221

Katie Wells, CTNC, MCHC, has been answering my questions about health and wellness, via Google, for years now – so I’m pumped to have her on the show to ask some of these questions in person!

Katie, AKA Wellness Mama, is a top thought leader for a young generation of moms who want to avoid the rampant health issues currently plaguing our youth.

However, when Katie began her journey, she was just a young mom-to-be who wanted some answers about her own health challenges, which were really kicked into overdrive when she was pregnant with her first child. It was then that she stumbled onto this startling statistic:

For the first time in history, this generation of children is expected to have shorter lifespans than their parents.

This was Katie’s “hold my beer” moment. So, she put on her journalist hat and started researching – although she used more than Google – and then she started sharing what she learned with others through a blog and podcast. 12 years later, Wellness Mama is still putting out some of the most informative and best-researched content in the health and wellness industry, and they’ve attracted a passionate community of other like-minded people who want to defy expectations and build a better future for the next generation.

This is the kind of stuff that really matters for our collective future, so I’m definitely hopping on the Wellness Mama train. What about you?

ALITURA NATURALS. Your skin is the largest organ and it needs to be treated like another mouth. If you’re as careful about what you put on your skin as you are about feeding your body, then you’ve got to check out my good friend and previous podcast guest’s skincare line, Alitura Naturals. Alitura was created out of desperation after it’s founder, model, and actor, Andy Hnilo, found his face unrecognizable after getting hit and run over by two cars.
