Cee McDermott Joins Me To Discuss How To Transform Your Wellness Holistically

Cee McDermott joins me on Passion Struck to discuss how to achieve a longer and healthier life. Her insights on conscious choices and epigenetics provide a holistic approach to optimal wellness. McDermott believes that people can take control of their health and life destiny by becoming experts in their own bodies, understanding the importance of nutrition, sleep, and physical activity, and embracing small actionable steps to solidify healthy habits. McDermott’s advice involves paying attention to one’s environment and upbringing to establish a balanced and nutritious diet, sleeping within one’s circadian rhythm, spending time outdoors, and engaging in meaningful relationships. Her approach is geared toward health-conscious individuals.

Cee McDermott, a former federal agent, found her true passion in helping others achieve optimal wellness through a holistic approach. At a young age, she began to hone her people skills while working in the field and embraced compassion as a guiding principle in her interactions. Over time, Cee realized that focusing solely on physical fitness wasn’t enough to create lasting change in her clients’ lives. Her journey led her to explore various facets of wellness, including nutrition, sleep, and epigenetics. With a strong desire to understand the complex systems that contribute to overall well-being, she dove deep into the world of Kundalini yoga, herbal medicine, and Reiki, embracing a multi-disciplinary approach to healing.

By listening to Cee and John, you will be able to:

  • Embrace a holistic approach to obtain your best wellness.
  • Grasp the significance of genetics and daily choices on your overall health.
  • Uncover conscious decision-making strategies for heightened health and contentment.

More From My Conversation With Cee McDermott

Using DNA to Optimize Our Health

As we unravel the mysteries of human DNA, it has become evident that our genetic makeup can be optimized for better health and wellness tailored to individual needs. With advances in gene therapy and genetic information, individuals can now better understand the underlying factors that contribute to their propensity for certain diseases, optimizing their healthcare and diet to achieve optimal results. During their conversation,

Your DNA, Your Life by Cee McDermott for Passion Struck recommended books.

Cee McDermott highlighted her commitment to helping individuals make sense of genomic testing and putting that knowledge to good use. Through her work, she aims to empower people to improve their lifestyles, incorporating the findings from their genetic tests to unlock personalized health plans that enable them to live healthier, more fulfilling lives. By understanding their genetic predispositions and taking actionable steps, individuals can take control of their health outcomes.

Health Span vs. Lifespan
The difference between health span and lifespan is an important concept to grasp for anyone seeking to lead a life of optimal wellness. While lifespan denotes the length of one’s life, health span refers to the active, healthy years an individual enjoys with minimal to no disease or disability. The focus should be on improving the quality of one’s health span, which translates to increased vitality and better overall well-being in later years.

Cee McDermott discusses the significance of proper mitochondrial function in extending one’s health span. She likens health and wellness to a bank account, where small, consistent investments in healthy habits compound over time, resulting in more robust health and increased longevity. By making mindful choices and investing in our health, we can enjoy a better quality of life, free from debilitating chronic conditions.
