In today’s episode, I interview one of my first clients, Sera Snyder on her wild and dramatic healing journey that started with a battle with food and how her body looked and has transformed into her supporting patients and health care professionals to collaborate on better health experiences and outcomes for 21st century holistic health-care that works.
In today’s episode, Sera and I talk about:
- How a health-crisis or battle with your body can be an invitation into profound growth and power, but it won’t be a straight line. And you can leave those simple, overly-positive self-help tips at the door.
- How finding your voice is a key to healing and losing weight
- The most progressive view of how health-care is evolving and transforming to offer better value to you as a consumer. And how to become the best advocate for yourself so you get the best outcomes.
We cover a lot of territory as Sera is someone who walks her talk and powerfully uses her voice. In today’s episode, Sera also shares the doctor she is working with now.
Here are some of the resources Sera shared about finding a dynamite practitioner.

In 2009, following her first surgery to remove her tumor, Sera founded Running for Answers (RFA), a running event that brings together a community to raise money and awareness for desmoids, the tumor Sera was diagnosed with in 2008. The race, which takes place annually in Philadelphia, has raised over $1.5 million for desmoid research and ignited a movement in this rare disease community. Her story to build and grow this initiative has been featured in USA Today Health & Wellness, Men’s Fitness, on the Dr. Oz Show and CBS Philadelphia.
