Episode 027: Pt 2. Nourishing, flourishing and just eating the cake with Jess Gaertner

In Part 2 of this incredible episode with Jess from Hold The Space Wellness, we talk about not just nourishing our bodies- but flourishing, inside out and outside in. We talk about the power of letting go of food rules and exploring to find what works for you and how what we put on our bodies and in on our minds affects our lives.
