What we eat matters. Learn how you can be your own health advocate and use food as medicine with Audrey Barron of Ezra's Cafe
Healing Through Plants with Audrey Barron
Food is medicine, but the industrialized food system has got so many of us hooked on processed, nutrient-poor food that harms rather than heals us. Audrey Barron is a medicine woman, creative talent, and owner of Ezra’s Enlightened Café in Indianapolis, a vegan, gluten-free, and 100% GMO-free restaurant. She is as passionate about plants as she is about empowering women to take back their own power and heal from the earth while trusting their intuition. Audrey is not simply hopping on the growing vegan trend; she has used plants to heal herself and, in this episode, she shares that journey with us. From struggling with a myriad of health conditions like insomnia, skin issues, and gut problems, Audrey found that eliminating certain foods from her diet and adding more plants changed her life, and the better she started feeling, the more she could learn about the healing power of plants. We talk about mainstream medicine, its approach to dealing with disease, and why this often disempowers people. Our conversation also touches on the importance of listening to your body rather than following food trends, insights into Audrey’s Medicine Woman program, and the power we all have when we listen to our intuition. Audrey's approach to plants and food is mindful, aware, and puts women back in the driver’s seat, and to get a taste of what her message is all about, be sure to tune in today!
