Now, more than ever, we need the right tools to help us become our optimal selves. Unfortunately, medication isn’t always able to address the root of our mental health issues. Despite following everything our doctors prescribe, the negative feelings we’re experiencing don’t seem to go away. Either that or they eventually return.

This doesn’t mean that medication doesn’t work. It’s just that the inner healer in your body has yet to fully awaken. We all have a natural superpower to address underlying issues in our own bodies and minds, and unlocking this amazing ability sometimes needs a little push.

Luckily, Jen Broyles is here to teach us everything we need to know about holistic healing. From practicing breathwork to using essential oils, Jen wants to share her first-hand experience in natural healing and how it has changed her life for the better.

“I found myself in the world of natural health, trying to solve the health issues that I was experiencing.” [2:11]

“We can see betrayal in a number of different things, whether it’s relationships or sometimes we feel like our bodies betray us. Sometimes, we feel like the health system has betrayed us or doctors have betrayed us.” [5:04]

“Trying to follow some of these diets was causing more stress because I wasn’t allowing myself grace. I would get very rigid and very stressed out about it.” [10:07]

Oftentimes, many of us are dealing with chronic stress in some form or another. And until we learn ways to reduce chronic stress, it’s going to be difficult to heal our body.” [11:33]

“What deep rhythmic breathing is doing is bringing coherence to the body. It’s creating a state of harmony, homeostasis. It’s calming the nervous system. And it helps realign all the rhythms in your body.” [18:37]

Breathwork isn’t just breathing. It’s a powerful way to create harmony, calm the nervous system, get yourself into a parasympathetic state, the rest and digest state versus the fight or flight state. It can create physical healing, emotional healing, increase creativity, insights, a deeper spiritual connection, and more.” [30:25]
