There's no denying that trans-generational trauma has a HUGE impact on our relationship with food and body image. In this vlog, I'm sharing my own story as an Indigenous woman who's confronted an addiction to sugar, a family history of diabetes, and a painful disconnect from myself. I want to unpack my individual experience to explore how the health of our people has been fractured on a molecular, systemic, and generational level. Our pain is very real, but so is our potential.
