Healing Ourselves From The Inside Out

Welcome to the 9 Elements Podcast brought to you by Restore Hyper Wellness. I’m your host, Eric Hinman. Each week, I sit down with trailblazers in the fitness, nutrition, and wellness communities, exploring how they optimize their daily lives for ultimate performance to do more of what they love.

I am a 5x Ironman athlete, brand builder, and someone who’s obsessed with health and wellness - structuring much of my day around fitness and recovery protocols. 

My guest today is a good friend, Cait Crowell. After struggling with anxiety, panic attacks and digestive issues, Cait Crowell visited a nutritional therapy practitioner and learned for the first time how the food we eat and how our digestive systems ability to absorb that food sets the tone for our entire health landscape. Working in Bangladesh with women and children in a nutritional rehab unit in acute health settings sealed the deal for Crowell, who earned her masters in blood chemistry in 2020. In the course of learning how diet and nutrition affects healing, Crowell was faced with mold toxicity in her home, and in the process, learned how to detox it from it.
