Ep. 51: Talking Ripped Dresses, Mercury Detox and Health Myths Debunked

Like a scene from a romcom movie, Gorgeous Esther, found her happily ever after in what seems like a comedy. Her dress ripped rushing out of a cab to a wedding in the middle of Manhattan. This resulted in her A-HA moment, which led her to love her body and teach others to do the same no matter the shape or size. This week’s guest on “Happiness through Hardship” – The Podcast is “Gorgeous” Esther Blum, an integrative dietician and high performance coach. She’s helped thousands of women permanently lose weight, eliminate the need for medication and reverse chronic illness. On today’s episode she shares her mercury detox story and has some fun debunking health myths with me.
