All these questions and more are answered in the first episode of 2023. Welcome to Season 3!! This episode is the 114th episode of the show and the first of the new year which is why it is so important to cover how to live with this condition.
Valerie Bachinsky is this episode's guest and she talks about how an anti-inflammatory diet can reduce OA symptoms, factors other than diet that affect inflammation, and putting your health first.
Valerie Bachinsky is an Arthritis Wellness Specialist who serves women seeking to reduce joint pain and inflammation so they can live their best life. She holds a Master’s Degree in Nursing and a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Education. She is a Certified Health Coach and has practiced as a Registered Nurse for over 25 years.
Faced with her own diagnosis of arthritis at the age of 27, Valerie has spent many years researching ways to lessen arthritis symptoms and slow its progression. A recent escalation of her own symptoms brought on by the additional occupational stress that accompanied the pandemic taught her to explore the ways in which psychosocial factors and past trauma contribute to arthritis symptoms and the ability to make healthy choices. Through it all, she has been able to maintain her active lifestyle and pursue the activities she is passionate about, mainly rock climbing and hiking. Valerie now shares her accumulated knowledge and expertise coaching other women with arthritis to develop the habits needed to live their best life. She passionately believes that no woman should have to throw away her dreams because of joint pain or a diagnosis of arthritis.
