Why you might fall in love with podcasts:
Here I have listed some podcasts that I have come across recently that I am enjoying listening to as I go about my day. There are podcasts available on virtually every subject and it is easy to find information online on how to set up a podcast app on your phone or computer. The ones I have listed are either related to chronic illness or inspirational in a holistic way.
With Eileen Laird
This bi-weekly podcast combines personal stories of the autoimmune experience, with interviews with experts in the field of health and nutrition. Eileen is an inspirational woman who has managed her Rheumatoid Arthritis through the Autoimmune Protocol diet and other holistic practices for many years and has now been forced to add conventional medicine into the equation. Her authenticity and knowledge about the autoimmune protocol have made her a fantastic source of information and empowerment.
With Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt
This podcast series was created as a free resource to accompany Mickey and Angie’s book, The Autoimmune Wellness Handbook: A DIY Guide to Living Well with Chronic Illness. Their mission with the book and podcast series is to spark a major shift in how autoimmune disease is viewed and treated all over the globe. These podcasts along with the other information in their books and blogs are incredibly useful for anyone ready to learn more about their condition and find a holistic path to managing all autoimmune disease.
I have personally found this series of podcasts amazingly helpful and it is so reassuring to hear about others going through the same experiences.

In the episode in this podcast link, Cristin interviews Julie Morgenlender about breaking down the stigma around chronic illness.

So there are hundreds of hours of fascinating and inspiring listening to be going on with. I will be adding to this list as time goes by and making sure to link in any podcasts I find specifically relevant to autoimmunity and chronic illness. (I haven’t added specific podcasts on Rheumatoid Arthritis as they tend to be focused on conventional medication but just to let you know, there are podcasts like that out there should you wish to focus on that.)
So why not make yourself a cup of tea, get cosy and have a little rest as you listen!
