Katie Garces is leading others towards “becoming the best versions of themselves, physically, nutritionally, spiritually and emotionally.” In this episode of Meathead Hippie, Em and Katie discuss the powerful depth of following your intuition. For Katie, the moment of awareness came to her when she started to battle with adrenal dysfunction and realized that there really is no “perfect diet” to heal her body. She knew that it would have to take a lot of her own curiosity by experimenting with different foods in order to see which of them would work best for her body. “When we are more in tune with our bodies, we can pause listen to what our bodies are really asking for.” Katie Garces talks about how she had to learn how to slow down and allow herself time and space to heal properly. By creating room to grow, Katie says that this helped her make an “intuitive switch” by quieting her mind, releasing control and letting herself flow to her own body’s rhythm.
