Sober Curious with Meg Gerber, RD: How Drinking Less & With Intention Served Her Entrepreneur & Autoimmune Journey
In this episode we chat with Meg Gerber, Gut Health Dietitian & JUJ Bitters Cofounder, about her Sober Curious journey and how her intentional relationship with alcohol impacted her healing journey and launched a whole new entrepreneurial business.Meg Gerber RD, LDN, IFNCP, CGN is a Functional Medicine Dietitian, Breath Work & Meditation Teacher and Founder of Grounded Nourishment (a private virtual nutrition practice). She is also the co-founder of JÜJ Digestive Bitters. Meg specializes in supporting those struggling with chronic digestive issues via a holistic approach that goes beyond the individualized nutrition to acknowledge the “elephant” in everyone's room - STRESS. Stress can lead to a broken digestive system. While 'we are what we eat’ is a common refrain in the nutrition world, Meg expands this statement by instead standing by ‘‘We are what we DIGEST and ABSORB'. This foundational pillar of her practice and health philosophy lead her to prioritize tools that go beyond the food alone to optimize digestion like mindful eating, mealtime breath work and bitters. It was only natural then, that she curated JÜJ, a uniquely formulated, gluten free digestive bitters that optimizes digestion while also bringing more joy to the social experience of sober curiosity and drinking.  Links: Veri Continuous Glucose Monitor: Code "VSM-YBHYB" for a discount at checkoutBiokult Probiotic: Code "YBHYB20" for a discount at checkoutJUJ BittersInstagram @JUJBittersJillian:Jillian Greaves Functional Nutrition & Wellness WebsiteEat To Heal Your Hormones ProgramPCOS Root Reversal ProgramTake the PCOS Root Cause QuizInstagramAbby:Above Health Nutrition WebsiteNourished Gut Guide (NGG)Instagram
