About Today’s Guest – Meaghan Cahill
Meaghan Cahill is a Licensed Health and Nutrition Counselor, owner of Cahill Wellness and founder of the Mind Body Food System. Meaghan received her education and training through The Institute of Holistic Nutrition, in Vancouver, BC, as well as thorough Nutraphoria School of Holistic Nutrition. She is also a member, in good standing, with the Health Coach Alliance.
Meaghan’s focus in her practice is to redefine health beyond the number on a scale, helping women make peace with food, body image and weight, by taking an intuitive eating/health at every size approach to nutrition and lifestyle. Her passion for this work comes from her own struggles with food and her body image, and it was her experience of becoming a mother, to a beautiful little girl, that she knew she didn’t want to perpetuate the diet culture narrative that has proven to be so damaging for so many.
It is with great pleasure that Meaghan is partnering with Brain Injury Nova Scotia to bring a nutrition and lifestyle program to their clients that focuses on taking the stress and overwhelm out of re-establishing healthy habits after a life altering event such as traumatic brain injury.
About Your Host – Chloe Luckett
Although every guest I speak with on the podcast is unique, everyone has their own story, and no two brain injuries are alike, I can relate.
In 2016 I sustained a traumatic brain injury and a broken neck while cycling in Halifax. I spent a month in the hospital, a month in rehab, and then moved home with my parents for the next four months. Nothing has quite been the same since. Whether it’s quickly cycling through a whole range of emotions or none at all, to imagining parties outside my room in the hospital, it feels like there’s always something I can connect to with a guest. Yet I continue to be surprised and inspired by the survivors I meet and am looking forward to hearing their stories.
Every day with a brain injury can look or feel different, but I think it’s important to look for the humour in all of it. Because if we can’t laugh at our beautiful broken brains, then what can we do?
