Your Sensitivity Is Your Superpower with Valerie Gangas

Have you been told that you’re “too sensitive?” Perhaps you’re easily overwhelmed in hectic environments or crowded rooms. You might be reactive to caffeine and notice how food affects you. Or you’re deeply tuned into your emotions and other people’s, too. Odds are, you’re a highly sensitive person!

Welcome back to Once Upon a Food Story Episode #3 with Valerie Gangas who believes that being highly sensitive isn’t a life sentence—it’s your superpower! Valerie is a sought after personal coach, author, and speaker who specializes in helping highly sensitive people gain a deeper understanding of who they are, so they can thrive and unleash their magic.

Valerie’s own personal journey after losing her mother to breast cancer brought her to a dark place where she hit rock bottom and became suicidal. Fortunately, she had a huge awakening, and her experiences taught her that no matter what you are going through, even at your lowest point, you can save yourself and use your heightened emotions to live a richer and fuller life. Valerie is living proof… and when she told her story to Oprah (yes the Oprah!), Oprah said, “I’ll have what she’s having.”

“Highly sensitive people are the visionaries of the world.” ~Valerie Gangas
