Uncover the Secrets to Managing Stress with Dr. Romie Mushtaq on The Beauty of Conflict Podcast

I recently had the privilege of joining Susan and CrisMarie on their podcast, The Beauty of Conflict. We dove deep into the challenges of managing a busy brain in today’s hectic world. As a neurologist and integrative medicine expert, I introduced listeners to my brainSHIFT protocol, a comprehensive approach tackling five crucial areas: Sleep, Hormones, Inflammation, Food, and Technology.
