    15/10/2019 Duração: 18min

    In this episode, Davia discusses the heartbreaking death of 28 year old, Atatiana Jefferson of Fort Worth, Texas in what should've been a "simple" wellness check. The episode discusses the details of the shooting, the impact of this form of trauma, and its implications for mental health wellness checks. This is the final public episode of the AFFIRM podcast. It felt necessary to publicly honor Atatiana Jefferson and make space to normalize the grief, anger, and hurt caused by her unnecessary death.

    ep 40 Birth Control The Pill & Holistic Alternatives

    29/03/2019 Duração: 34min

    Today, we're discussing birth control. The discussion of female reproductive health is highly politicized and while we’re still fighting to have autonomy over access to healthcare for a myriad of reproductive needs… there’s another wellness issue at hand: ...miseducation or a total lack of education about the best options for our bodies. I’m specifically referring to birth control, how it works, and the tons of options that we can use naturally or through medication. Because while women’s bodies are constantly the topic of conversation, many women are sharing how they received very little education about the inner workings of their bodies outside of the “Don’t get pregnant” message pushed by parents, schools, and abstinence programs. This lack of education leads many women to not know how to advocate for their needs or have awareness of different options. And when you don’t know your body and you don’t know your options, you can’t make informed decisions about the right doctors or medications. So today, we’

    ep 39 Learning My Body

    12/03/2019 Duração: 18min

    From a young age, the female sex is inundated with messages about our bodies. Commentary about body shape and desirability begins early. This scrutiny is particularly emphasized when a young girl's body begins to develop in puberty. This is intensified under the Madonna-Whore complex where women's values are determined by their desirability. This episode focuses on the need to shift from unhealthy societal messages and examine ways to begin a healthier relationship with our body. Take a listen...

    ep 37 Healers For Hire

    15/02/2019 Duração: 23min

    So in the age of wellness and personal development, a lot of us are seeking information to grow and heal from emotional and physical pain, right? You're looking for someone to show you the way to transform and change your life. And as the demand for that grows, the number of self proclaimed healers seems to skyrocket. So the well intentioned and the flat out scammers all look alike on your Instagram and Twitter feeds. And with so many #healers, it's hard to know who's really in it for the right reasons. So today I want to discuss how the idea of being someone's healer can be problematic, but also cover the range of everything from an unaddressed savior complex to deliberately exploiting people's vulnerability to also recognizing the need for us to take responsibility in our own healing process. And I hope you're ready for that part of it too. So this isn't a "call out" episode but more of a "call in" for all of us.
