Best of 2023
Today, let’s explore the two most downloaded episodes of 2023 for the “Why Did I Get Cancer?” podcast! These episodes left a lasting impact on our community and I had a great time going back and relistening to all of the great insights these guests shared.
The first standout episode featured sleep expert Devin Burke. Devin shed light on the profound connection between sleep and overall well-being. It’s not surprising that this episode became a favorite among our audience, as the information provided by Devin was valuable and addressed a common struggle we all share.
I was a bit surprised to discover the second most downloaded episode, which was an episode that discussed the potential connection between boundaries and cancer. Known for his expertise in personal development and boundaries, Dr. Henry Cloud talked about our issues related to boundaries, codependency, and people-pleasing which could contribute to the risk of cancer.
Join me in this review episode as I reflect on the wisdom shared by Devin and Dr. Cloud.
