Today’s episode was so important! I sat down with my dear friend, Adele Tevlin, and we spoke about a new era of leadership — something we are both incredibly passionate about. In particular, we dissected the idea of female leadership and the notion of what it means to be a female leader, both for ourselves as women, but also why the world needs us now more than ever. We also looked at this idea of gender gap and how it is really a symptom of self-efficacy and a lack of confidence, as well as some of the root causes as to why we simply can’t break through the way we want to.

 

In the next hour, we lay out a blueprint for female leadership. I truly believe that there’s a deficit of leadership systemically in our society and that this is really an opportunity for a new type of leader, a new authenticity, and a new way of doing things. And I believe we all have the capacity to be able to deliver upon this.

 

So join in on our conversation today as we go really deep into what it means to be a leader as a woman!

In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements.

Today’s interview with Dr. Adi Jaffe is incredibly timely because September is named as the National Recovery Month by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Dr. Adi Jaffe is the author of The Abstinence Myth and the founder of the IGNTD Podcast along with his wife, Sophie Jaffe, and is an expert on addiction. He often talks about the pervasive shame that we have in the traditional treatment models of addiction and the problem with the black-and-white labels that we apply upon it. He says the thing about addiction and the reasons we become addicted, is that they are actually pervasive to all of us. There are times where we all want to escape the feelings of our life, and it is usually that desire that triggers any form of addiction in the first place.

 

This conversation was deep, insightful, and it breaks all the rules of how we traditionally talk about addiction and recovery! Dr. Jaffe tells us his deeply personal story about his own addiction and recovery, explains why traditional recovery models are failing us, and provides insight around the myth of abstinence. He explains how to actually get on the path of recovery without abstinence, how to not externalize emotions and better manage our feelings, the biological and environmental components to addiction and how we can actually alter them for the better, and much, much more! This episode is jam-packed with so much valuable information that is incredibly important, regardless of where you are in life!

More About Dr. Jennifer Tanner

As an award-winning Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Jennifer Tanner believes in movement. She was introduced to the world of medicine when she injured herself competing in tetrathlons (running, shooting, horseback riding and swimming). Surgery and pain killers were the only options she was given. Frustrated that three knee surgeries still didn’t correct the problem, she searched elsewhere for options. After decades of research, working as a Western University Athletic Therapist and at the Sydney Olympics and logging thousands of patient hours, she created the STRONGER Inside Protocols. With these protocols, she now has the energy and strength to run marathons. She helps optimize the health and performance of executives, runners, and those looking to bring fitness back into their lives with three major goals: recharging their energy, injury prevention and treatment, and healthy digestion.

 

Dr. Jennifer Tanner is dedicated to helping people Design Your Health. Together with her clients and patients, she creates a roadmap that aligns with their health goals and takes the stress off of them so they can live more freely.

 

Dr. Jennifer Tanner is also a mother to three wildly animated children, is a horse lover, marathon runner, and an unshakable optimist dedicated to helping others feel their best. She strives to help others find their Inner Superhero so they have the energy to get back to doing what they love doing.
