Imagine stepping into the shoes of someone who has faced life's darkest corners, battled addiction, confronted trauma and emerged on the other side, not just surviving, but shining with spiritual wisdom. Welcome to our space, and today, we have the privilege of having Gabby Bernstein (to speak about her book Happy Days), a spiritual teacher and author who embodies resilience and transformation, sharing her life's journey with us. She unveils her battle with addiction, her path to sobriety, and a traumatic childhood event that laid concealed for years, providing insight into how extreme behaviors, good or bad, can serve as shields protecting us from our internal struggles. Have you ever pondered how our past traumas, feelings of shame and relationship styles can affect our physical health? Together with Gabby, we delve into this fascinating territory, examining how these elements can manifest into physical issues, from digestive problems to brain fog. Gabby's insights reveal that our biologically designed shame responses, which are meant to tether us to safety, can lead to debilitating issues when suppressed. Moreover, we shed light on the enduring physical impact of trauma and stress the importance of embarking on the healing journey in a safe and timely manner.For Mari’s Instagram click here!For Pursuit of Wellness Podcast’s Instagram click here!For Gabby’s Instagram click here!For Gabby’s Podcast click here!For Gabby’s Coaching Membership click here!Gabrielle’s Books (to name a few):Happy DaysThe Universe Has Your Back: Transform Fear to FaithSuper Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest DreamsMay Cause Miracles: A 40-Day Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Radical Change and Unlimited HappinessProducts Mentioned:Peter Lavine - Trauma ExpertThis episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.

Everyday Products That Are Making You Sick, Fatal Conveniences, Living Plant Based, Invisible Toxins and Ways to Detox Your Life w/ Darin Olien

Have you ever considered the invisible dangers that could be lurking in your everyday products? In a riveting discussion with our guest, Darin Olien (Author of Fatal Conveniences), we uncover the pitfalls of what he terms 'fatal conveniences' and how they can negatively impact our health. Drawing from his father's experience with multiple chemical sensitivity, Darren emphasizes the potential harm of the approximately 60,000 largely untested chemicals present in products we use daily. Whether it's your deodorant, clothing, furniture, sunscreen, or even the air you breathe, every personal choice can be a stepping stone towards better health and wellness.Darin guides us through the contrasts between regulations in the US and EU, shedding light on how products are often pushed to market stateside without sufficient safety tests. He encourages us to take action, support companies that prioritize health, and become informed consumers. We also delve into the serious health implications tied to our exposure to these chemicals, and how small and simple changes, like switching to natural skincare or growing our own food, can contribute to a healthier lifestyle.

Kathryn and Kendra open up about how they dealt with these challenges, applauding each other’s willingness to evolve and be vulnerable. Finally, the KK Fit Twins share their personal struggles, the unique pressures of twin fitness, and how their upbringing influenced their previous extreme bodybuilding approach. We also examine how their view on health and fitness has evolved, the obstacles faced, and the powerful lessons learned. Let's delve into the enlightening conversation that marks a significant shift from the traditional fitness narrative to a more wholesome perspective.Super excited to announce that Bloom Greens are now RESTOCKED on Amazon!

From Homeless To $400M: Tobi Pearce On How To Find Your Purpose, Mindset & Motivation, Overcoming Adversity, Self-Judgement & Criticism and Learning From Failures.

Today we have an incredible guest, Tobi Pearce - tech founder & ex-CEO of SWEAT, investor, and now an advisor to other founders. Tobi’s inspiring journey from homelessness to finding success through fitness and ultimately a $400 million dollar record-breaking sale of the massive SWEAT app - all before his 29th birthday - is full of inspiration and wisdom beyond his years. He also happens to be the partner of one of my dear friends, Rachel Dillon, so check out her episode below. On this episode, we talk about hitting rock bottom and finding purpose through pain, if business and passion really need to align, why timing is everything, why the best leaders have the experience in the game to make better decisions, learning from failures, how Tobi saw an opportunity in the female fitness market, values and qualities in relationships that change after finding success (yes, he was a multi-millionaire sleeping on an air mattress), becoming a parent, dealing with self-judgment and criticism, why achieving your goals actually makes things harder, sitting in stillness and learning to be alone with your thoughts, why being unrelatable makes your circle tighter, and more. There were so many parallels in my own journey through business, fitness, and learning about changing relationships along the way. Regardless of where you are in your journey or career, whether you are an entrepreneur, work for a business, or are simply trying to find your future purpose, this episode is for you. We hope to see you on Sunday 10/8 for our POW x Bloom community walk, listen to the episode for more details!Super excited to announce that Bloom Greens are now RESTOCKED on Amazon!

From A Drug Addict in Jail To An Award Winning Personal Trainer: Childhood Trauma, Recovery, Fitness as Medicine, Doing the Work & Learning to Love Yourself Again with Doug Bopst

Today’s guest is Doug Bopst, award winning personal trainer, author, speaker, and podcast host. Doug has an incredible transformation story from a former incarcerated drug addict to where he is today and says he is lucky to have survived his 25th birthday. Through perseverance and a complete mindset shift, Doug turned his pain into purpose to become a successful, multifaceted individual. In this episode, we discuss childhood trauma, how his choices that lead him down a dark path were driven by a need for acceptance, addiction to the validation of being wanted or needed, why drugs created a false sense of confidence at his most insecure point in life, coping with anxiety and depression, understanding that no one is coming to save you, finding the strength to push past rock bottom and the pivotal moment that turned his life around, fitness as medicine for physical and mental health, tips for staying disciplined and becoming your own biggest advocate, doing the work and saving your own life. I was so inspired after talking to Doug and I think conversations like these are so important to have, whether it's my own rock bottom story or someone else's. Even though all of our stories are different, I hope to anyone listening who may be struggling that this shows that there's a light at the end of the tunnel and you CAN find the strength to push yourself past your adversity.  For Mari’s Instagram click here! For Pursuit of Wellness Podcast’s Instagram click here! For Doug’s Instagram click here! To hear my episode on The Adversity Advantage click here! To shop Bloom Nutrition Greens click here! To download Mari’s workout plan & recipes click here!Please note that this episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.

The Shocking Truth About The Chicken You're Eating, Grocery Label Lies, Pesticides & Soil Health, Recovering from Lyme Disease, How to Start Your Own Farm, And Raising Chickens with Farmer Paul Greive of PastureBird.

On today’s episode, we are joined by Pasturebird Farm’s founder & farmer,Paul Greive. Paul transitioned from city life as a corporate accountant without a background in agriculture when an illness required him to change the course of his life. After serving in the Marine Corps and contracting Lyme disease during sniper school, Paul began to look more closely at what he was putting into his body to focus on healing, but wasn’t able to find pasture-raised chicken that fit his Paleo needs. His family ordered 50 chicks as part of an experimental hobby when they first moved to Temecula, and now Pasturebird is the largest pastured poultry farm in the world and official supplier of chicken to the LA Clippers and Dodgers. On this episode, we get into the problems with our food system, why pasture raised chicken is important, industry myths, sustainability, how to read labels at grocery stores, regenerative vs. factory farming and what this means for both plants and animals, glyphosate and its long lasting impact, the importance of buying directly from farmers, hidden truths about farmers markets, soil health and the environment, ancient wisdom from indigenous practices, and getting back to our roots by finding the joys of nature at any age. Paul was kind enough to share a discount code exclusively for the POW community so be sure to check out their website below and listen to the full episode if, like me, you’re inspired to get your own chickens and want to know where to start!Use code POW for 10% off all products at https://www.pasturebird.com/.For Mari’s Instagram click here!For Pursuit of Wellness Podcast’s Instagram click here!For Pasturebird’s Instagram click here!To shop Bloom Nutrition Greens click here! To download Mari’s workout plan & recipes click here!Please note that this episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.

On today’s episode, I’m chatting with Paige Lindgren, a Certified Hormone Specialist and Pilates Instructor who is passionate about helping women feel their best and find balance, hormone health optimization, and healthy lifestyle choices. Paige also co-founded From Force to Flow, a cycle syncing platform that's full of hormone knowledge and tips for each phase of the menstrual cycle.

Appointment with a Naturopath: Detoxing Mold & Parasites, Leaky Gut, Chinese Medicine, Hormone Health, Food Sensitivities, Stool Tests & Cortisol with Dr. Saman Faramarzi

Today’s guest is naturopathic doctor Dr. Saman Faramarzi. Dr. Sam is someone who has guided me physically and spiritually through a lot of my acne journey and completed her naturopathic medical training at Bastyr University. Dr. Sam studied cutting-edge research on mindfulness at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Harvard Medical School. She incorporates her knowledge into private practice and witnesses profound changes in patients just after a few visits. I thought this episode would be an awesome opportunity for my POW audience to have an “appointment” with a naturopath as I recognize that these tests may not be readily available or accessible to everyone - as always take what works and leave what doesn’t and I hope you learn something new along the way. On this episode, we get into the seven different tests we ran on me and my results, how health relates to trauma and mental/emotional health, stress roadblocks and clearing pathways to live optimally, principles of Chinese medicine, the importance of healthy gut and liver function as well as microbiome diversity, hormone health and thyroid issues, why food sensitivity is controversial, environmental toxins and how to properly detox, parasites, and simple tips and hacks that can make a huge difference to your health and overall happiness long term. I also address some recent feedback as well as give updates to the protein bar formulation before we get into the episode, so make sure to listen - this ep is full of valuable insights and I can’t wait for you to hear it!For Mari’s Instagram click here!For Pursuit of Wellness Podcast’s Instagram click here!For the SAFA Life and Wellness website click here!For Dr. Sam’s Instagram click here!To shop Bloom Nutrition Greens click here! To download Mari’s workout plan & recipes click here!Please note that this episode may contain paid endorsements and advertisements for products and services.

We talk her breakup and the aftermath, her healing process, learning you can’t fix someone, hormone health/gaining healthy weight, masculine vs. feminine era, living a bright and fun life, *those* spicy rumors, what she’ll look for in a future partner, if her DMs are really open to the ladies, and so much more.

Paul Saladino Pt. 1: Why Women Should Eat More Meat, Plant Toxicity, Failures of Western Medicine, Oatmeal is BS, Moldy Coffee, Raw Dairy, & more.

Today on the show I had an incredible conversation with Paul Saladino MD, one of the leading experts and authorities on the science and application of the animal-based diet. We covered so many valuable topics, specifically for women, that we plan to release the interview in two parts. Dr. Saladino is board certified as a physician nutrition specialist and completed residency at the University of Washington. He attended medical school at the University of Arizona where he focused on integrative medicine and nutritional biochemistry. He has used these diets to reverse autoimmune issues, chronic inflammation and mental health issues in hundreds of patients, many of whom had been told their conditions were untreatable.
