Benedict's journey with prolapse and holistic approaches [00:02:50 - 00:05:25]
Benedict shares her initial attempts to resolve prolapse, including being told she needed surgery and her decision to take a holistic approach. She also discussed the importance of using healing language rather than language that implies brokenness or the need for fixing.
Diet and symptoms [00:06:48 - 00:12:36]
Benedict talks about her journey towards nourishing herself with healthy food and being mindful of what she eats. The importance of gut health and how it affects physical and emotional symptoms.
Breath-work [00:12:36 - 00:25:19]
Benedict shares her journey with breath work and how it helped her manage stress and become a health coach. She also emphasized the importance of being in a relaxed state to heal and regenerate cells and how she started implementing five minutes of breathing a day and how it helped her become more resilient to stress.
The importance of breathwork and relaxation [00:25:19 - 00:40:57]
This explains how breathing from the top of the chest sends a message to the brain that we are stressed, and the importance of deep breathing for relaxation. Benedict demonstrates a breathwork technique called the physiological sigh, which has been scientifically proven to bring instant relaxation.
