Show Notes

Welcome to the very first episode of the GroWise Be Well podcast! In this episode, we introduce you to our founder Sarah Southwell, whose empowering story shaped GroWise Be Well’s mission. Sarah shares her journey which begins in 2002, when she decided to kick her addiction to speed. While facing debilitating withdrawal symptoms, Sarah sought out medical help and soon became used to hearing, “nothing is wrong with you.” Instead of giving up, Sarah talks about how she began researching how to cope with her withdrawal, leading her to create a toolbox of healing methods. In the process Sarah learned about the value of people, love, joy, and that she was working towards making the best life that she could imagine. Similar to her challenge with addiction, Sarah discusses how she struggled to find help when coping with postpartum depression, and then later, with supporting her child through sensory processing disorder. By trusting her intuition and diligently researching each issue, Sarah was able to develop an even greater toolbox of healing methods. Everything that Sarah has been through has led her to founding GroWise Be Well — a platform for her to spread love, open up her toolbox, and use her knowledge to help people.
