How to Follow Your Heart and Your Gut

Ready to make a change, listen to your inner wisdom, and feel like your best self in the new year and new decade?! Then it’s time to nourish your body with healing foods, release limiting beliefs, and pursue your dreams no matter your age or stage in life!

Liz Fisher, a pioneer in the wellness space and CEO and Founder of the innovative yogurt brand Lavva, believes that you can always reinvent yourself and begin again. In 2013, Liz had a thriving career when she was taken by surprise with an advanced stage ovarian cancer diagnosis. While undergoing treatment, Liz’s physician husband put her on an extremely low carbohydrate and high fat (keto) diet as a compliment to conventional cancer treatment.

Having feared dietary fat for years, Liz was forced to experiment and open her mind to new ways of eating. While incorporating healthy fats, she found and fell in love with the pili nut, and was amazed by the rich buttery taste and concentration of vitamin E and magnesium. Liz knew she had to learn more about this special healing ingredient.

Now, Liz is cancer-free thanks to a combination of medicine, lifestyle, and dietary changes, and she also runs her own company based on the plant-based creamy creations she was making in her kitchen using the pili nut. With no added sugar and over 50 billion probiotics to support overall health in each yogurt cup, Liz invented an alternative to the alternatives when she founded Lavva.

Tune in and let Liz inspire you to follow your heart (and your gut) with her powerful story of resiliency and reinvention!
