Far too often, our problems as women are chalked up to hormones or menstruation or just being whiny, but we know our bodies and we deserve to be listened to – especially by our medical professionals. Women’s pain just isn’t taken as seriously as men’s, and that’s a problem.



But today’s guest Bethany Holmes, AKA The Healthy B, has a story about one of her own health issues that just resonated with us so so so much. Really, it’s like a soap opera – you can almost hear Liz + Nina eating popcorn in the background!


And if you weren’t aware, Wine & Shine is now FINDING YOUR SHINE! We’ve grown a lot as people over the past two or so years and we wanted to make a change to the show to reflect that. But don’t worry – you’re still going to get the same incredible guests and the same fun conversations, all in the same place!

Christina Rice is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Primal Health Coach (with a unique background in psychology and film) dedicated to helping you find YOUR version of wellness so you can live your healthiest life. She’s also a host of two podcasts: Wellness Realness and Straight Up Paleo.

Christina doesn’t mince words in this episode, sharing everything she thinks about some of the trends in the nutrition and wellness industry – like the problem with intuitive eating and why it doesn’t work for everybody (at least not without putting in some work to heal first) – why we all need to invest more in ourselves, and what she believes are the best first steps anyone can take to start fixing their own health.

  • YOU are the best product that you could possibly invest in!
