Episode 096: Debunking Commonly Misunderstood Terms with Katie Leadbetter

Gluten-Free vs Grain-Free. Organic vs Pastured. Eco-Friendly vs Safer vs Chemical Free vs Green vs Sustainable.

Its confusing to know what all these terms mean, right (we know because they’re some of the most frequently asked questions that we get)?!

In this week’s podcast episode, I’m joined by my good friend Katie Leadbetter of @cleaneatingwithkatie (who at this point is the unofficial guest host of the show) for a casual conversation as we debunk these terms and offer our thoughts on navigating around them.

Episode 091: Thriving Through Cancer with Alyssa Carrie and Katie Leadbetter

In this episode, I’m joined by frequent guest (she’s been a guest here on the show more than anyone else) and friend of the program Katie Leadbetter and Alyssa Carrie.

Katie and Alyssa are both certified holistic Nutrition Consultants, 21-Day Sugar Detox Coaches, and they’re both very young cancer survivors.

Katie was on the show last October, specifically in Episodes 056, 057 and 058, sharing her experience of surviving stage 2B Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Breast Cancer which she has been in remission for almost five years.

Alyssa was diagnosed with Lymphoma a year ago at the age of 26 and thankfully is also in remission. 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Alyssa share her cancer story for the very first time. She shares how vital the Ketogenic diet was in her healing, as well as how she partnered with her oncologist to trace her steps to identify the root cause of her cancer.

  • You’ll also hear them both share how important self-care and personal growth was during their respective treatments 

  • What went well during their treatments and what they found lacking

  • And how they’re filling that gap for cancer patients by collaborating on a new program they’ve created that launches in just a few weeks called, “The Cancer Survivor’s Course.”

It takes a special kind of vulnerability to share such personal experiences and I’m grateful that these women are brave enough to do so.
