We are joined by a guest from Calgary, Alberta today: Dr. Justine Dowd, a researcher passionate about empowering others to heal themselves holistically. Justine's fascination with the psychology of behaviour change led her to complete a PhD in Health Psychology. However, she met an unexpected challenge when she discovered she had celiac disease immediately before beginning her doctoral studies. This diagnosis would not only influence Justine’s lifestyle but also shape her future. This experience has fueled her passion for her research on dietary behaviours of people living with celiac disease. In addition, Justine believes strongly in, and has also researched, the power of self compassion to help achieve optimal wellness and manage chronic disease. Combining her personal experiences and scientific knowledge Justine frequently leads holistic health seminars and coaches people one on one to find natural solutions for their health challenges.
