Due to the pandemic, there has been a massive shift to work from home. In fact, 88% of organizations have encouraged or required their employees to work from home and nearly 43% of Americans say they want to work remotely even after the economy has reopened. 


Working from home is the new normal. But with it comes a major learning curve! We have families, children, pets, laundry, and more distractions than ever before. How can we achieve work, life, and family balance now that the lines between home and work have become blurred? Today’s guest, Kate Erickson, is here to teach us how to overcome the overwhelm, and manage our time in order to live in alignment with our ideal lifestyles.


Kate is also the engine at Entrepreneurs On Fire, an award-winning podcast where John Lee Dumas interviews inspiring Entrepreneurs who are truly ON FIRE. She is also the host of the podcast Ditch Busy and co-author of The Podcast Journal: Idea to Launch in 50 Days. Her goal: to help entrepreneurs ditch busy and achieve financial and lifestyle freedom.

Today I am joined by friend of Food Heals, Laura Powers, to talk about a microcurrent frequency device that might be the missing tool in your healing toolbox.


Did you know healing happens at different frequencies? What if you could harness the power of microcurrents to promote well-being, boost your immunity, relieve stress, and improve your overall health? 


The Healy is a revolutionary wearable device. It uses microcurrent and Individualized Microcurrent Frequency (IMF) programs to promote good health and vitality. It is so powerful that, in fact, one Healy is sold every ten seconds around the world.


The Healy can be used to treat chronic pain, fibromyalgia, skeletal pain, and migraine as well as for the adjuvant therapy of mental illness such as depression, anxiety and associated sleep disorders.


Tune in to learn:

⚡️ How frequencies balance the body, mind and spirit

Are you tired of feeling tired? Do you often feel fatigued? With all of the issues we face on a daily basis, it’s no wonder we’re exhausted. And while we take care of a lot, who takes care of us? Thankfully, I’ve found something that really works: Magnesium Breakthrough. Most “healthy” people only get 1-2 forms of magnesium at best (much of the population is deficient in ALL forms) — but when you get all 7 major forms of magnesium, that’s when the magic happens. I love BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough because it contains every key form of magnesium, in exactly the right ratio.

According to the Global Wellness Institute, the health and wellness industry is now worth $4.2 trillion. On today’s episode of Food Heals we’re talking to four female founders who are shaking up the wellness movement in innovative and exciting ways.


Denise Woodard is Founder & CEO of Partake, a company she created when her daughter Vivian was diagnosed with serious food allergies. In 2016, Denise decided to leave her decade long career at Coca-Cola and sold cookies out of her car for 6 months. She even sold her engagement ring to fund the company! Partake features only simple, wholefood ingredients in their recipe and the cookies contain 20-30% less sugar than the other gluten-free and vegan cookies on the market.

Elizabeth Rider is author of The Health Habit and host of Elizabeth Eats on FMTV. In a world flooded with diet information, Elizabeth’s healthy recipes and straightforward nutrition advice draw millions of inspired readers to her popular blog. Best known for her fun and accessible approach to food and healthy living, she’s built an online wellness empire from scratch on her iPhone and laptop.


Paige Parsons Roache and Sherri Johnson are hosts of Plant-Based in the Burbs, and they go Facebook Live every Wednesday. Paige is the producer of Jane Unchained’s Lunch Break Live and Sherri is a personal trainer and the creator of W29 Activewear. Together, they share tips to transition to a plant-based diet, PLUS fitness, food swaps, and how to raise healthy plant-powered kids!

One of the biggest misconceptions about magnesium is that you just “need more” of the mineral and you’ll be healthy and optimized. But the TRUTH is, there are many different types of magnesium — and each plays a critical role in different functions in your body. Most “healthy” people only get 1-2 forms at best (much of the population is deficient in ALL forms) — but when you get all 7 major forms of magnesium, that’s when the magic happens. That’s why I’m so excited to share BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough —it contains every key form of magnesium, in exactly the right ratio.

At age 19, Marisa Imôn was diagnosed with bipolar type 1 and had to withdraw from school during a manic episode. All her life leading up to this she had been at the mercy of her emotions – never knowing if she’d wake up feeling suicidal or euphoric. But to the world around her, she was just a happy, friendly girl.


She hid her emotional intensity until it reached a breaking point in the form of mania. Modern medicine and therapy made her believe there was no recovery, or at least not without medication. She was told that people with bipolar type one can go on to live happy, healthy, and successful lives, but only if they’re medicated. 

In this episode, Marisa shares the tools that she uses daily to help her work with her emotional intensity instead of feeling like her emotions are working against her.

  • How to reframe the concept of negative emotions to FUN: Feelings Under Neutral
  • How to use your fears and anxieties to move upwards in the emotional scale
  • How forgiveness opens the door to freedom

Jasmine Leyva is the director of the feature-length documentary, The Invisible Vegan, a film that chronicles Jasmine’s personal experience with plant-based eating and how veganism intersects with race, class, and gender.

Just “Jas” to her friends — she is unapologetically an artist.  With a Bachelor of Arts in TV, Film and Media and a Master of Fine Arts in screenwriting, she worked as an associate producer on a NAACP winning docuseries entitled Unsung, and shortly after, was given the opportunity to write and produce on Being, a docuseries highlighting dynamic entertainers in film and music. She’s done court shows, casted for Food Network productions and made strides in front of the camera.


She went on to star in commercials and print ads for major brands like Nissan, Sony, Apple, Uber, American Express, Diesel, BlackPeopleMeet, Credit Sesame, Michelle Watches, Elle magazine and more.  She also starred in the Lifetime show, My Crazy Ex, along with other TV projects.


Happy to be doing what she loved, but simultaneously unhappy about not telling her own stories, she decided to let go of her nine-to-five and focus on her own goals.  Just Jasmine.  No limits and no boss except for her own creativity.


Jasmine and Kenny Leyva produced their own feature length documentary, The Invisible Vegan, a film that chronicles Jasmine’s personal experience with plant-based eating.  The film also explains how plant-based eating is directly linked to African roots and how African-American eating habits have been debased by a chain of oppression stemming from slavery, economics and modern agribusiness.

On August 2nd, 2018, Rachel Dye went for a five mile run like she normally did, around a lake near her home in Southwest Washington. Two days later, she was rushed into emergency surgery and had a golf-ball sized tumor removed from her colon.


Just days later, she was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. Rachel and her husband, Jamison, were told that she may only have 6 months to live if they did not act quickly with aggressive treatment.


This felt like a death sentence. In fact, the first few doctors they met with acted like this was a death sentence too! Rachel was a 27-year-old wife, mother of 3 young children and that answer wasn’t good enough for her.


This is when their journey truly began. 


Together Rachel and Jamison built a team of oncologists, naturopathic doctors, and advisors and with a combination of western medicine and alternative medicine methods, Rachel was cancer-free!

  • The truth about high dose Vitamin C & hyperbaric oxygen
