Making the Maven Episode 130: Where does healing really come from?


Razi Berry is the Co-Founder of Naturopathic Doctor News & Review (NDNR) and Founder of NaturalPath. At 25 years old, Razi was sick and going from doctor to doctor trying to find out why. No one could help and it got so bad that she decided it was time to fire all of them and start fresh… and that’s how she found homeopathy. Razi Berry started NDNR 14 years ago when she was fed up that there wasn’t an official journal showing case studies of how, and why, homeopathy works. On today’s show, Razi discusses the difference between a community and a movement, where she sees the wellness industry going, and why healing happens within yourself.

*Razi Berry starts her morning every day by hugging a tree in her yard.

*Healing happens within.

*Why did Razi decide to start NDNR?

*Razi is not just creating a community, she’s creating a movement. What’s the difference between creating a community vs. creating a movement?

*What’s Razi’s movement about?

*Razi discusses some of her fears about Western medicine overtaking traditional/natural medicine.

Do What Feels Right — Don’t Suppress Your Inner Self

Making the Maven Episode 129: Stop trying to fit in and start BEING your authentic self.


Amanda Gates always felt like a weird kid when she was growing up. Her mother was a full-on hippy who made her own clothes, soaps, etc. All Amanda wanted to be when she was growing up was ‘normal.’ However, when she built her first dream home, she was unhappy. Nothing felt right in her house, and that’s how she found herself getting into Feng Shui and slowly becoming a closeted (and then out in the open!) hippy. Find out more about Amanda’s journey on this week’s show!

Key Insights & Aha Moments


*How did Amanda become a woo-woo hippy?

*Amanda explains what it was like wearing her mother’s home-made clothes.

*Amanda was such a closeted hippy for so long that when she was finally free to express herself, it was time to focus on her legacy and how she can serve others to the best of her ability.

*As women, we tend to push down our gut reactions. We want to ‘fit in.’

*When you start getting haters, that’s when you know you’re doing something right. You are living your authentic self unapologetically.

*What is Feng Shui?

*Amanda has been doing this for 20 years; she can see everything from financial issues to affairs just by looking at your floor plans. You bring your energy with you no matter how many times you move.

*On Amanda’s podcast and website, she shows you how you can read your own floor plan.
