Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.


The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

When struggling to find a passionate creative drive, we all come up short some days… but how often do we consider the effect this has on our health?

Today I’m doing something a little different. I thought it’d be really fun to have Cynthia Morris on the show.

Cynthia is a rare breed of author, illustrator and performer. She is the brilliant mind behind Chasing Sylvia Beach, a fast-paced, intriguing romantic fantasy.

In this episode Cynthia teaches us how to accept and express the artist we were born to be. We dissect what keeps us from our best writing and our electric creativity.

Also, I’m excited to share with you my sponsor, Perfect Supplements. I use their Cordyceps and Natural Calm Magnesium all the time – and am thrilled to partner with them to bring you the show.

As a special offer to my “clan of the crave bears” and listeners, Perfect Supplements is offering 10% off your order when you use the discount code CRAVE10 at check out! Click here to get your goodies!

Now let’s connect our body and physical desires.
