In this episode with Edward Williams of Health BAMN, we discuss normalizing unhealthy habits, transgenerational trauma, and so much more that affect the physical and mental health of people of color. I really enjoyed Edward and he shared so much useful information and resources, I am sure you will enjoy the episode. They will only get better from here!
Key Take aways:
- “Preventable diseases don’t run in our family. They are not inherited. The habits, the conditions, and our environment play a part impressing upon you how to eat and live” –Edward
- Dealing with the trauma of your experience is a part of the healing process.
- Culture evolves
- The hustle doesn’t stop on the street level. The hustle takes place way more on the academic level, the higher medical field, and pharmaceutical levels.
