#78 | Four Dimensions of Health: Getting Better by Digging Deeper with Catarina Catarino
About This Episode
Catarina Catarino is a Transformational Nutrition and Eating Psychology Practitioner as well as a Pilates and Qigong teacher from Portugal. Uniting nutrition, movement, and psychology, she has an in-depth understanding of the effects our mental and emotional states have on health, mood and weight. Using natural methods that help awaken the body’s own healing mechanism, she helps people transform their relationship with food and their bodies into a phenomenal partnership.
“Yes, I have diplomas and certifications, but my real mentor has been my life experience.”
Join us for an eye-opening conversation about health, addiction, and digging a little bit deeper to build better lives for ourselves. Catarina will share her struggles with bulimia, depression, and addiction, as well as her expertise in multi-dimensional health.
For most of Catarina’s life, she saw suffering as normal. She dealt with severe depression for all of her teenage years, as well as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). When she reached adulthood, she developed Seasonal Affective Disorder, struggled with an eating disorder for 20 years, and alcohol addiction for 14 years. Fighting these battles with her body, especially with her bulimia and addiction, taught Catarina that health is not just about the body. She became certified to help people make the connections between their mind, body, and spirit that can allow true healing and long-lasting health.
“Femininity is strength, resilience, nonlinear thinking, embodiment, and connectedness.”
In this episode, Catarina shares her advice for being healthier, developing a better relationship with food, and having more wisdom and knowledge of your own body. While people often think it is the big leaps that are most important, Catarina believes that small steps and the thought behind those steps is what makes the biggest difference.
“Success is about a life well lived, measured by the level of my contributions, the quality of my relationships, and the integrity between my values and actions.”
