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.

Mind-Body Medicine on The Cravings Whisperer with Alexandra Jamieson

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Today I’m talking about mind-body medicine, which is really using the relationship between your mind and your body, using the power of your thoughts and emotions to influence your physical health. The key to any mind-body technique is to train the mind to focus on the body without distraction OR judgment, which is a big one for us ladies!

I talk about this a lot in terms of cravings, right? How can we focus our mind on our body to really tune in and listen to our cravings and understand what they’re really asking for?

My guests today are Grace Smith and Jovanka Ciares, the creators of Mind-Body Academy. Both of these women specialize in different aspects of mind-body practice – Grace is all about stress relief, and Jovanka specializes in nutrition, herbalism, and alternative therapies.

As you’re listening to today’s episode, I want you to really think about whether you think mind-body medicine works, and if you think it could help you.

Today’s sponsor is Audible.com®, who has more than 180,000 audiobooks and spoken-word audio products. Get a free audiobook of your choice here.
