A hero’s journey is a narrative to describe the journey of a brave warrior who must overcome a major obstacle or turmoil in order to find victory, often transforming themselves along the way. Elissa Goodman’s hero’s journey included obstacle over obstacle over obstacle (and more) that she had to overcome in order to create the life of vibrant health that she lives today.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I speak with Elissa about her personal story of struggling with a deficient immune system and the multiple health effects it caused, her battle with cancer, losing her husband to cancer, and how she overcame two different autoimmune conditions using whole foods and a healthy lifestyle. She has used her many obstacles to create vibrant health, write books aimed at helping others, and coach hundreds on their own journeys.
Also mentioned in this episode, The Broken Brain Podcast episode featuring Peter Crone; the books Mind Over Medicine by Lissa Rankin, MD and The Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell; Medical Medium with Anthony William; and the therapists recommended by Elissa, Elizabeth Winkler and Ryan Weiss.
