Episode Info: #135 My awesome guest this week is Jeffrey Rediger with an eye-opening conversation around the concept of healing. Jeffrey is a medical director for the McLean south east, adult psychiatric programs and a leader in ground-breaking neuroscience research. He is also an instructor in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, has a Master of Divinity degree from the Princeton Theological Seminary, and is a licensed physician as well as a Board-Certified psychiatrist. In this motivational episode, we talk about Jeffrey’s new book, Cured: the Life Changing Science of Spontaneous Healing and his professional opinion on how we as humans can heal. I found this conversation incredibly interesting because Jeffrey really interweaves science and divinity and teaches us how we can utilize that in our everyday lives. We hear about everything from nutrition to healing our identities and beliefs and how it all ties together to make us as humans the healthiest that we can be. He then leaves us with the uplifting fact that we all matter. I was really influenced by the emotion and positivity in this episode and I hope you enjoy it as well.
