In our mainstream culture, at least in the States, mothers have spent perhaps hundreds of years deprioritizing ourselves and our own spiritual, mental, and physical health in favor of everyone around us.
I think of my own blessed mother and how much she unintentionally martyred herself in order to please the ones she cared for. And how her mother did the same. And probably her mother before that. And so it goes, generations and generations back.
In some ways, we can see the beauty of that. It's part of what it means to embody a Mother Archetype - to love and nurture and lift up the ones we love the most.
And favoring others over ourselves also has some potentially pretty devastating consequences at the individual, family, and community levels. Many of us have lost sight of boundaries, of the energetics of harmony and how to create it, and of true self-responsiblity for our own health and self-care.
Today's guest is Dr. Christy Matusiak, a holistically-driven chiropractic physician. She has spent over the last decade helping patients overcome autoimmune conditions, pain, and chronic illnesses. She uses many systems to identify the root cause and support all areas of health (physical, nutritional, emotional, and energetic).
As a holistic doctor, and mom to three boys, Dr. Christy used her personal and professional perspectives to author the book “Coordinating the Chaos – Through Birth and Burnout.”
Dr. Christy and I talk about the art of surrender, the importance of personalized self-care routines, the new paradigm of medical care, and how we can alchemize the chaos of motherhood into absolute beauty.
Dr. Christy is a refreshing voice, reminding us to fill our own cups first. Listen in, my beautiful and busy mamas...
