Reinforce U: Your Mind Body, & Spirit Ally

Dec 12 2021 • 1 hr 5 mins

In Episode 0003 of Reinforce U: Part 2 of my interview with Health & Wellness Coach Leticia Gonzales. Leticia continues sharing her and her family's journey living with multiple autoimmune disorders, their strong faith, and how they refuse to be defined by health issues. As a bonus, Leticia takes us on a mental cleanse through the power of visualization techniques that she uses to clear her mind and stay focused on life and living in the moment.

She shares her advice on being your strongest advocate and taking responsibility for one's own health. By instilling these principles in here four children, they are thriving independently and as a family. We discuss the shift in the traditional medicine model to the functional medicine approach and how the mind-body medicine lifestyle has limited the effects of living with Hashimoto's disorder and other complex autoimmune disorders.

At the conclusion of her interview, we pick back up on applying the VIA Institute's character strengths. We discuss the virtue of Humanity and its strengths of Love, Kindness, and Social Intelligence. We explore five exercises utilizing each strength to improve one's own sense of well-being. In this extended podcast, we help you take one more step toward being the person you long to be.

The medical topics discussed are Leticia's journey and are not meant to advise you on the appropriate care plan for you and your family! These illnesses are serious and any care decisions should be made between you and your healthcare team.

Leticia Gonzales Biography
Leticia Gonzales S-FMCHC is a mother of 4 and married to her husband of 18 years. She has been living with Hashimoto's for 13 years, but unfortunately, she was only diagnosed seven years ago. Through the past 15+ years, Leticia has also been helping her children thrive through their medical diagnoses of Hashimoto’s, EDS Syndrome, Unspecified Anxiety, OCD, PCOS, ADHD & Dyslexia. Rather than giving up and allowing the stress and feeling overwhelmed to take over, she learned how to live with a purpose. She decided to dedicate her next chapter in life to helping those going through similar situations to regain their self-empowerment through Functional Medicine. Leticia is currently working towards her certification in Functional Medicine at FMCA and becoming Board Certified. Her struggles and studies towards becoming a Board-Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach have allowed her to grow and gain powerful tools to help others. Today Leticia offers individual services to Adults, Teens & our youth. You can reach Leticia through her email at: lgonzales.fm@gmail.com.

Leticia believes..."We are not defined by our medical diagnoses nor our current life situations. Instead, we are defined by what we do, our actions, our desire to thrive, and our desire to LIVE."
