Listen to the podcast below!


If you’ve ever struggled with coming back from injuries, sore feet, or a sore back, or were told you’d never be as healthy, frisky, and active again as you were in your teens or twenties, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be talking about getting your health back, overcoming injuries, even REALLY big ones, kicking chronic conditions to curb like plantar fasciitis or sore knees or hips or even a sore back, and getting walking, riding, swimming, or even running again, despite what you may have been told.

That plus we’ll talk about visualization, connecting with the earth, playing in hot tubs, shedding your shirt, and why you might be making strange sounds, the next time you’re playing with a tennis ball.

That plus we’ll talk about broken legs, broken hips, broken arms, broken knees, broken feet, broken hands, broken fingers, broken toes, broken elbows, broken shoulders, broken clavicles, a broken skull, injured disks, plus missing knee parts, and how you can STILL run marathons, and why a doctor once told me in the hospital, that I’d just hurted an automobile after it ran over me.

Au contraire, doctor, au contraire.

But before we begin, a key note, lawyers everywhere would want me to mention, I’m not a doc, nor do I play one on TV, so nothing here should be construed as anything close to medical advice. It’s not. So when in doubt, see your doc!

She seeks out ideas from seemingly opposite sides of an issue to help her audience plug into what’s unfolding on a global scale.

Every week CJ interviews some of the most provocative trailblazers in the fields of spirituality, environment, relationships, and parenting.
