Personal Development Coach & Female Empowerment Advocate
Episode 43: Really Listen To What Your Body Is Saying
Today on the Inner Circle, it’s a powerful and vulnerable conversation that centres around listening to your body and what it’s telling you. We often allow pain to become our new normal, or spend time searching for answers and trying just to push through another day while going into our “power mode”. Laura Krosky joins Carrie to openly and honestly share her story on illness from breast implants. She talks about why she decided to get them, how they made her very sick for years and how she discovered thousands of women had a story just like hers. Laura also opens up on getting them out, and what it is like to readjust and fully accept a natural body.
