156: Gut Health, the Magic of Listening and How to Hold Space with Teresa Alasio, MD

I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down for a second time with the incredible Dr. Teresa Alasio, and boy, does she know her stuff. We had the most mind-blowing chat about everything from gut health, how to really listen to your patients, and hold space for them while they are on their journey of healing. You won’t believe the little gold nuggets of wisdom we uncovered! 😳

As we started chatting about the importance of addressing gut health with our patients, our conversation soon diverged into a stream of different topics, each one naturally flowing into the next. We talked about how to guide the patient toward their desired outcome, listen without judgment, and be the one to inspire and encourage as we hold space for their healing to occur.

Just as important is ensuring we maintain healthy boundaries between ourselves and the patients to encourage them to do the important work themselves. It’s all about being there for them, believing in their unique journey, and supporting them every step of the way. 🌟

Can you tell we had a deep and meaningful conversation? 💞

This episode is overflowing with some incredible ah-ha moments that you won’t forget anytime soon. This conversation was like having a heart-to-heart with your bestie while sipping on your favorite beverage. 🍵

So, listen in and enjoy this episode, compliments of the chef. 🌿

I think you’re going to love it.
