Dr. Heather Sandison is our guest in this episode. With a focus on neurocognitive medicine and neurohacking, Dr. Sandison discusses how a naturopath facilitates holistic health and why this matters. We learn what it’s like to be a medical professional making new motherhood work while simultaneously launching a new therapeutic venture. And we get an inside peek at what self-care looks like (hint: it includes the ocean).
