Episode 65: Mastering Balance with Autoimmune Disease with Michele Spring

May 12, 2023


If you are struggling with your autoimmune disease, and you are ready to find some better balance, you are not alone. On this episode, my guest will answer the question… how can you master finding balance in your life when you have an autoimmune disease?

The answer is powerful, it involves protecting what is most important to you, and I think it’s going to surprise you.

My guest in this episode is Michele Spring. Michele is an autoimmune health coach who blends using diet, lifestyle, and mindset to help you live a full life and feel great despite autoimmune disease. She is a very dear friend and one of my business besties. What I love about her message is that it goes beyond just nutrition to incorporate an entire mind-body approach.


 Together, we will unpack:

  • Michele Spring shares her experience with Hashimoto's and celiac disease
  • Michele's journey to diagnosis and healing
  • Flare-ups as they relate to an Ironman participant
  • Do stress management techniques like Qigong, yoga, and walking REALLY help?
  • The disconnect between the Western medical system and holistic root causes
  • Lifestyle changes for long-lasting improvements
  • Shedding your high-achieving identity


If any of what I said today resonates with you, then I invite you to my FREE webinar and masterclass, Navigating Difficult Times, where you will learn how to look at stress from a totally different perspective, to find a new superpower for your health, and gain your energy back so that you can get through the tough times with ease.

If you are in that place where you are ready to start making some changes in your own life...  if you are eager to raise your hand and be ready to do whatever it takes, I am here to be your coach, your mentor, and your champion who believes in you. Your next step is to TAKE THIS FUN 2-MINUTE QUIZ and find out how much gratitude and grit you have.
