Positive Nutrition with Paige Smathers: Performative Health vs. Embodied Wellbeing

Paige Smathers and I dive deep into some of the most critical and core concepts within the realm of health and healing.

We explore what the word "holistic" actually means and talk about the power of reclaiming words that get co-opted by gimmicks. We also discuss the concepts and frameworks of performative health versus embodied wellbeing and explore metaphors of how to distinguish between these two approaches. We talk about the incredible work of Niva Piran and her Developmental Theory of Embodiment, and about the risks of approaching health and wellbeing with an all-or-nothing mindset. We explore the power of joy and pleasure in health.
