Episode #35: Lauren Geertsen

November 1, 2017

WHEW! Coming up with a title for this episode was a real struggle. Why? Because on today’s episode I’m chatting with Lauren Geertsen from Empowered Sustenance and Meo Energetics about everything! No really, everything.

Lauren is a wealth of knowledge and since starting the podcast I have wanted to bring her on the show. I had an hour of her time and I really tried to make the most of it so we covered a lot of ground. From her struggles with ulcerative colitis, her healing journey, mental health and chronic illness, energy medicine and what it means to be an “empath”, we’re talking about it all.

On Episode #35 of the That's So Maven Podcast, we're welcoming Lauren Geertsen to talk about autoimmune disease and healing her body with food.

At 24 years old, Lauren’s journey is nothing short of inspirational. She is currently writing a book and I’m eagerly awaiting for it to come out. In the meantime, I have today’s episode to listen to on repeat.

Here are just a few of the things we discussed:

  • Lauren’s journey and how she launched Empowered Sustenance
  • Her struggles with ulcerative colitis and how she healed her body with food
  • The healing archetype and how to support your mental health with chronic illness
  • How to use food to heal your body with a history of an eating disorder
  • Health perfectionism and how to recover from it 
  • Health as a journey, not a destination
  • Energy medicine – what it is and how it can benefit your health 
  • Living as an empath vs. being a highly sensitive person

    Abstaining from health perfectionism was a really long and difficult journey for me. I am so glad I found a way out of it, and I can really resonate with Lauren’s experience with it! This was such an amazing interview and I enjoyed listening to this episode!

    I can really relate to this post. Getting too caught up with being the “most healthy” I can be really sacrificed my mental health. Thanks for bringing awareness!
