This week we are talking with Megan Whitaker.  Megan is a former nurse turned Crunchy, hippie mom of 2. After being a chronically sick kid she finally changed her whole life, healed herself and now helps other families take control of their health and go non-toxic. When she’s not pregnant or constantly  breastfeeding, she loves to read and rock climb. Listen as she shares her story of turning “Crunchy”, trying to find her mom “tribe”, and turning to research to fuel her alternative lifestyle.


Listen as Megan shares how she:

  • Has struggled with finding mom friends that share her values.
  • Uses social media as a way to connect with other moms.
  • Focuses on research to fuel her natural lifestyle.
  • Suffered from chronic inflammation and used holistic remedies to ease her symptoms.
  • Believes modern medicine is important, and should be used in conjunction with a holistic lifestyle.
  • Believes baby steps need to be taken towards a more natural lifestyle.
  • Has some simple steps towards a more holistic household.
  • Keeps germs at bay with young children.
  • How she “fights with facts”.
  • Had a beautifully successful homebirth.
