Did I really let out an inviting cat call “Rawrrr” as a guest on Clean Eating Dirty Sex when discussing “spicing up” relationships?
Oh my… I feel like I lost my virginity on air Did it feel good? Yes. Scary? Yes.
When we are out of our comfort zone WE grow the most, right? I did not know what to expect when I said yes to being on the show. Randall and Lisa are a blast to talk to and we laughed so much.
Laughter is the best medicine!
I do know that holistic health and finding your own personal “thrive” is what I am passionate about as a psychiatrist. Soul alignment, happiness and being able to enjoy life are goals that we all need to strive for.
A healthy and intimate sex life is part of multidimensional wellbeing.
When I was in medical school and during residency and fellowship discussions on sex, kink, and how to talk to our patients about this was grossly neglected. I think that as a society we need to figure out how to be non-shaming about sex, intimacy and relationships.
We need to focus on health and happiness. Self- acceptance and self-awareness are key ingredients for emotional and physical wellbeing. When individuals thrive WE all thrive.
Admittedly I was initially judging “is this show a good idea for my brand and my vision?” Then I said to myself you need to take a leap of faith. You need to advocate for healthy minds and bodies by participating in a show like this. It is important to be a role model as an integrative psychiatrist who champions changing the way we think, talk and act about mental health and holistic wellbeing.
Clean Eating Dirty Sex is about pushing the envelope with up to date information on nutrition, healthy mindset, holistic health and yes…. SEX!
