Episode 177 Empowering Self-Healing Therapy: Interview With Ashley James

4/17/2024
How can you begin to heal yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally? What are some practical strategies to guide you on your holistic journey to well-being? MEET Ashley James Her podcast is called Learn True Health with Ashley James where she interviews holistic health experts and doctors of Naturopathic medicine 3 days a week. Through the interviews, her expert guests teach listeners how to gain health naturally through holistic medicine, diet, supplemental nutrition, and lifestyle changes. Ashley ensures listeners learn Natural Medicine Life Hacks for gaining energy, better sleep, a boosted immune system, and an overall feeling of awesomeness! Over the last 10 years, Ashley and her husband have built several interesting businesses including reaching the top rank of a holistic network marketing company, living off of a thrifty eBay business, and building and selling bat houses from their garage to aid in bat conservation. Ashley struggled with health issues her whole adult life, including infertility. When she was 19 she was told, by an MD and an endocrinologist, that she couldn't have kids. When Ashley was 22 she lost her Mom to cancer. This loss was so great it caused Ashley to reassess her life. She became determined to learn how to help others lead healthier happier lives. First, Ashley became a massage therapist and Reiki Master. Then she became a master practitioner and trainer in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy, Hypnosis, and coaching. Through her 20s, she struggled with hormone issues, diabetes, weight gain, regular infections and chronic fatigue. MDs offered only drugs to manage symptoms with no solution to help her body heal. In 2011, Ashley turned to naturopathic holistic medicine for answers. Through holistic medicine, Ashley cured her diabetes, resolved her hormone issues, got her energy back, and stopped the chronic infections. What's most impressive is after 6 years of trying to get pregnant without natural medicine, Ashley and her husband were able to naturally have a baby thanks to naturopathic medicine and nutrition! When Ashley isn't interviewing doctors and holistic health experts for her podcast or coaching her wonderful clients to achieve their life and health goals, she is spending time with her husband and son, enjoying the Pacific Northwest, exploring the Greater Seattle Area, and cultivating her skills in the kitchen by cooking whole food, organic meals for her family. Ashley is passionate about her podcast and building its listenership because she is on a mission to change lives by bringing holistic health information to those who, like her, are seeking better health naturally! Please help Ashley in her mission by sharing her podcast with your friends and family! Together we can all Learn True Health!

Sign up today at https://helloalma.com/for-providers/?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=paid&utm_campaign=holisticcounseling Why do some people embark on spiritual journeys? How is the mind like a puppy when it comes to meditation? What can you do to make yourself “lighter”? MEET Joe Gilbert Joe Gilbert is a clinical mental health counselor and meditation teacher. His primary office is at the Cedar Walk Wellness Center in Hillsborough, NC. He lives with his wife in Hillsborough, and enjoys hiking and backpacking, listening to the birds, and cuddling with his animal companions. Find out more at Gilbert Meditation FREE meditation group hosted by Joe Gilbert IN THIS PODCAST: Why Would You Want To Embark On An Inward Facing Journey? We hear people say “I want to be more present. I want to be in the present moment” and the reality is that you are never out of the present moment, it’s just for a lot of us – a lot of the time – we don’t like it and so we think there’s something wrong, that I need to go out of my soul to find something to fix it. (Joe Gilbert) Many people live on autopilot, unaware or dissociating from their current reality, and think that they need to achieve something other than themselves in order to find peace, or presence, in their current lived experience. Going on an inward-facing journey means meeting your own needs so that you can be present in your reality without running away from it. You meet your needs, put your ego to rest and simply be, without worrying continually. I knew I could not keep living my life the way I was living it … I always had existential questions … a lot of the times I would get the response “just don’t think about it, no big deal” …there was this continual pull from me to question everything … self-inquiry to me is continuing to ask “what’s true here?” And we find out what’s true by stripping away what’s false. (Joe Gilbert) Surrendering helps you to let go of the structures that you hold onto that remain the perception of what you think your reality is. Surrender, and open yourself up. Stilling Your Mind Find what works for you, because some people need: More movement: People who find stillness in mind and spirit could try a form of yoga, tai chi, or a gentle hike to move the body without becoming over-excited. To get rid of the script: Get rid of the idea of what you think meditation and stillness look like because it is different for everyone. To stop running: Stop running from something, because yoga works well when...
