EPISODE 045: Community is Medicine with Dr. Michelle Peris

This episode talks about the importance of cultivating community as a pillar for health for women and the transformations resulting from people collaborating and leaning on each other, getting strength and identification while transiting through challenges.

Community is not easy to achieve but on the other side, social isolation is proven to be a leading cause of mortality, even more than smoking, poor diet, or alcohol consumption.

Rebel Tribe was born with a goal in mind, building a community for women for a ten month program, offering sisterhood and self care as a path to tap into our divines femininities and reclaiming our “wild”, which is the innate sense of knowing who we are, what our needs are and how to fulfill them.

Community is medicine, it can revolutionize your health, helping you to claim back your power and own your story fully, with both sides, the one that we are proud of and the side that we sometimes choose to leave in the shadows due to guilt, shame or embarrassment.

Listen to this episode to understand the impact social isolation has on your health and to be inspired to seek the support of an authentic community, one that helps you to tap into your feminine power and to embrace your own unique story.
