  • I Had A Breast Tumor, Here’s What Happened

    Oct 8

    I waited a long time to share this experience. It’s one that I’ve wanted to keep private, but the more vulnerable I’ve been here on my blog, my Balancing Your Hustle Podcast, and on Instagram the more feedback I get from women (and men) going through similar experiences, stop feeling so alone.

    I’ve been super into cold therapy lately. Remember when I talked about ice cube facials and all the benefits? Well let’s just say I’ve been doing a bit more than that.  I upgraded my inflammation fighting and collagen boosting cold therapy obsession to standing in a chamber set to -150 degrees F.  Yes, that’s a thing.  It’s called cryotherapy…and it’s AMAZING!…

I mean…poor mushrooms get a bad rap.  Some people like them but others get super creeped out by their texture, taste, and the fact they are fungi.  Usually the mushrooms that come to mind are Portobello, Shiitake, and Button, but there are other medicinal mushrooms…
