Rebel Hearts with Kristie Reeves


Oct 25, 2017

This week on "Rebel Hearts": Kristie talks with Los Angeles physician Dr Yvonne Maywhether. Dr Yvonne received her medical degree from George Washington University, followed by a residency in emergency medicine at King/ Drew University Medical Center in Los Angeles. She worked as an emergency medicine physician for many years before making the switch to functional and age management medicine. Dr Yvonne is excited to educate her patients about anti-aging and how to heal your body in a holistic way. 
 
Extreme fatigue due to adrenal and later on digestive issues made Dr Yvonne look at her nutritional choices and the stress levels she was experiencing on a continuous basis in her work as an emergency room physician. Being diagnosed with cancer and finding out that mainstream medicine was unable to help her, she turned to holistic medicine, followed by finding a strong spiritual practice.
 
In this interview we talk about how we are exposed to stress on a constant basis, from emotional stress to stress at work, dealing with deadlines, stress in our relationships, and the virtue that is placed on "being busy". Dr Yvonne educates us on the long term effects stress has on our body, especially our immune system as well as shares about her own  journey of healing from stress related illnesses. 
 
Dr Yvonne talks about some of the tools that she has found in healing cancer as well as the importance of a clean, organic diet. She also shares that it wasn't until she discovered the spiritual aspect and its importance in healing ourselves on the physical level that she was able to address the underlying issues of the cancer she was experiencing. We talk about how instead of being angry or ashamed of a medical diagnosis to actually use it as a motivation and chance to transform our lives for the better.
