This episode’s guest, Sharissa Bradley has a company called “Independence through Nutrition” where she helps in the reversal of autoimmune disease. She has a strong belief in food as medicine.

She begins by sharing her own healing journey having had the diagnoses of four autoimmune diseases ─ not all at once ─ which started when she was eighteen.

0:11:45.9 At this point, she shares her nutrition path, how she came up with the idea to switch her diet which eventually led her to a spiritual path that looked at the effect of mindset and past traumas in the healing process.

0:27:26.8 Here, they shared their own experiences with the anxiety and the fear response versus the actual food response or “When is an itch just an itch?”

0:31:14.2 Sharissa wants to educate people on understanding nutrition better. She wants to empower people with knowledge and confidence as opposed to walking out of her office with just a list of things to do without having an idea why.

0:44:07.1 Here they discuss ways to bring the microbiome back into balance. Sugar is definitely feeding the wrong kind of bacteria in the gut, she says. She also recommends probiotic and prebiotics.
