I have a feeling today’s episode will be especially personal and eye-opening for all of us. My guest today is my good friend, Razi Berry, who is the founder and publisher of the journal Naturopathic Doctor News & Review as well as the premier consumer-based website of naturopathic medicine, NaturalPath.net. Razi is also the host of the Natural Cancer Prevention Summit and The Heart Revolution,” as well as the ever-popular Ten-Week Sugar-Free Summer Program.
Aside from all of her credentials, Razi has an incredible health story to tell, from a near-death experience as a young girl that healed her heart to later overcoming infertility, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia through naturopathic medicine. If you’ve ever wondered about the mind-body connection (or felt like the whole idea was a little out there), this just might be the episode that changes your mind forever!
Episode Highlights With Razi Berry
- How Razi almost died from anorexia at a young age and the miraculous healing that saved her
- The brain’s messengers to the body and how the connection is truly scientific!

- Principles of the naturopathic or therapeutic order of healing

Episode Quotables From Razi Berry
The chemicals that our body produces to think cognition, feeling emotion, these are all neurotransmitters and peptides. Candace Pert called them molecules of emotion. And she who was a pharmacologist who believed that it was these thoughts and feelings, these chemical messengers that were kind of the mediator between our lived experience of the physiology of our body and the greater world around us that we are don’t necessarily see.
