The Vagus Nerve : A Key to Wellbeing with Michele Kambolis

Michele Kambolis

Meet Michele…

One of our all-time favourite guests and an acclaimed author (her new book ‘When Women Rise’ is available for presale June 11!) and speaker who has been featured on Good Morning America, Huff Post Live and Goop, Michele draws on both her scientific and spiritual knowledge (and more than 20 years’ experience working with women in clinical therapy) to provide daily practices that help others overcome the barriers that hinder their freedom and compromise their very essence. In this episode, she uses her fresh, empowering, genuine approach to teach us all about the vagus nerve and its importance on our well-being. Looking to bring more balance and joy into your life? Press play!

Do you ever stare at nutrition labels trying to figure out if what you’re giving your kids is actually good for them and their digestive systems? I found myself doing that ALL the time and was SO happy to discover The Latte Co! Founded by 3 women and packed with clean ingredients and no added sugar, Latte Co is a line of vegan milks for kids that come in a powder form so they can be blended into absolutely anything. Love! xo Erin

Is it just me or does your underwear drawer need a major overhaul? I recently discovered Huha, a female-founded line of mineral underwear infused with zinc that promotes healthy bacteria while eliminating odor (bonus: they’re also biodegradable and compostable!). The best part? They’re genuinely comfortable, flattering, size-inclusive… and I actually want to wear them! xo Erin
