Maria Fadiman – Coming Out On The Other Side of Your Autoimmune Reactions
Aired Friday, 19 April 2019, 7:00 PM ET
In this fascinating, raw, and real chat, we explore the absurdity of ‘all-of-this’ along with what to do with the all too common statement “It’s all in your head” with mycotoxins autoimmune thriver, National Geographic explorer and FAU professor, Maria Fadiman.
Maria Fadiman works to make a difference in the world (really, the whole world) and embraces the challenges that come with the explorer kind of life. She is the creator of a compelling and funny one-woman show about discovering her autoimmune disorder, dealing with it, and getting back to being a “badass international explorer” even with an autoimmune condition. Just some of what she shares with us is:
• The freedom when you discover ‘It’s a crazy reaction, AND I’m not crazy…’
• How to find the humor and uncover happiness within your diagnosis,
• Why it is essential to have someone who “helps you think it out…”
• The mindset tips that keep this international explorer continuing her adventures, plus so much more.
Our guest Maria Fadiman is an associate professor in the Geosciences at Florida Atlantic University and a National Geographic Emerging Explorer. She researches the human/environmental aspect of conservation, focusing on ethnobotany, the study of the relationship between people and plants, and has given two TEDx talks. In addition to her academic publications, she writes adventure essays and is one of the invited contributors to the book, Global Chorus, along with others such as the Dalai Lama and Jane Goodall.
