I often talk about the deep impact both our relationships and emotional health have on our physical health, so this week I’m thrilled to be diving deeper into the subject with the one and only Dr. Christian Gonzalez. Join us for a beautiful conversation about why authentic self-expression and releasing suppressed emotions is so important for the health of your body, mind and spirit.

Dr. G took an interest in many fields of medicine, but it wasn’t until his mother passed of cancer that he decided to shift his focus to oncology. There he found a passion for helping people optimize their health by preventing chronic disease and he soon realized that cancer was not simply nutritional or exercise-based, it was much more than that.

As he studied this concept more, Dr. G became passionate about environmental medicine as well as the mind, body, and spirit connection. Everything is connected, from the foods we eat to the way we think and interact with the world and the people in our lives. These seemingly small factors all play a large part when it comes to our health and longevity. Because of this, Dr. G has shifted from working with patients to focusing his energy on mass education. He is the host of the excellent Heal Thy Self podcast, which focuses on giving people the tools they need to truly heal from the inside out and highlights some of the top medical professionals in the industry.
