This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Xenia Branstetter, a former Financier in the City of London who faced multiple autoimmune diseases that left her bedridden and unable to keep up with her job and life.

After making the difficult decision to quit her job and focus solely on her recovery, Xenia went to extreme measures, becoming obsessed with healthy living and facing struggles with depression and disordered eating along the way.

I was curious to learn more about Xenia’s autoimmune conditions, the mistakes she made on her journey, the lessons she learned, and what motivated her to become a coach helping others going through similar challenges.

Tune in to hear Xenia’s inspiring story and insights on overcoming adversity and finding a path to healing and helping others.

We dive into topics such as the importance of self-care, the role of mindset in healing, and the power of community in support and growth. Xenia’s story is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the ability to overcome even the most difficult of challenges.

Whether you’re facing health challenges of your own or simply looking for some motivation and inspiration, this episode is sure to uplift and inspire you.

We discussed:

  • Xenia’s journey to becoming a Health Coach
  • The mind-body and the gut-brain connection
  • Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis
  • The risks of switching to a ‘healthy’ diet
  • Obsessive health behaviours
  • 3 things to make your healing journey easier.
