Dr. Dan interviews self-care strategist, certified holistic health coach, raw food chef and founder of b.nourished Katie McDonald. Katie encourages us to start thriving instead of simply surviving. Dr. Dan and Katie discuss perfectionism, self-care, mindfulness, and self-worth.
Katie McDonald’s corporate career and motherly duties occupied her every waking moment. She was depleted and depressed — suffering from asthma, allergies, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, pneumonia, shingles and lung infections. The real threat of a compromised and shortened life span became all the inspiration Katie needed to transform her body-mind relationship.
In 2011, Katie founded b.nourished: a fulfillment of her vision to transform other people’s lives, one mindful habit at a time. Katie trained at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City and she is also a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
