TGGC #55: Understanding the five elements for greater health and healing with Amy Kuretsky

Amy Kuretsky is a health coach for creatives, licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist, and woo-woo as fuck.

She helps busy bosses fuel their hustle by honoring their health and their bodies, and helping them heal their digestion.

She started following this path after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease - an autoimmune disease of the gut - over 10 years ago and using natural healing therapies to heal her own digestion and become her healthiest self ever.

We talked about her journey of healing from Crohn’s, tapping into our intuition, the fact that foods aren’t the enemy but not every food is for every person, and how the elements are connected to our body and can help us live in more harmonious ways.
