186: Kelli Tennant on Combining Ayurveda with AIP, Finding Your Identity, and Healing Through Spirituality

April 10, 2019

Today I’m chatting with Kelli Tennant, host of Ceremony Wellness podcast and wellness expert who specializes in helping women heal from pain and fatigue by incorporating functional medicine and Ayurveda. After a lifetime of fatigue and always being sick, Kelli ended up having to quit playing college volleyball and also leave her career as a sports television host in order to overcome her mysterious health issues. In this episode, Kelli shares more about her own personal health journey, dealing with chronic fatigue, pneumonia, Epstein-barr virus, fibromyalgia, SIBO, and more. We discuss forming one’s identity, what it’s like to leave a high-powered job, and finding your tribe as an adult. Kelli also shares more about her experience with AIP, how she incorporates Ayurvedic principles into her life, and other lifestyle changes she made to heal from chronic illness. We also discuss spirituality, past lives, Kelli’s experience with Ayahuasca, and more.
