E30 | How to harness self-love for healing from chronic conditions

Have you ever felt like your body is your biggest adversary in your chronic illness journey?

One of the biggest mistakes people with chronic conditions make is believing that self-love is a luxury they can't afford, when in reality, it's the key to their healing and resilience.

They often believe their bodies have turned against them and that only medications can help. This prevents them from listening to their bodies' messages and supporting the healing process. 

Today, explore why self-love, particularly towards your own body, is crucial, and discover three actionable steps to stop seeing your body as your enemy.


  • Why self-love is not a luxury but a fundamental part of healing.
  • How to understand and act on your body's messages rather than seeing them as betrayals.
  • Three actionable self-love practices to start incorporating into your routine today.
