Hi there! I’m Dr. Jodie Bean and I’d love to welcome you to Our Bean Pod where we are creating and maintaining health, wellness, & happiness primarily by detoxifying mind, body, & soul.
Okay, realistically that should be “I” not “we” as my husband isn’t totally on board with all the “health stuff” but he’s understanding more about the benefits every day. Or at least he isn’t running away, kicking and screaming about it anymore… 😉
Health means different things to different people, as do wellness and happiness.
Some people are inherently healthy and happy.
Unfortunately, some people believe they’ll never be healthy, well or happy. I disagree – at least at the possibility of it!
I’m passionate about the healing ability of our bodies when we get all the interference out of the way. Many people don’t know what causes interference with our health and wellness or how to remove it.
We’re all on our own journeys regarding health, wellness and happiness with different goals and different starting points. Even though I’ve been working at it for a long time, I’m still human and make human mistakes.
I have many, many years of both formal and informal education, in my graduate program and afterward, especially in the areas of health, wellness and nutrition.
And even though I KNEW what I should be doing and not doing to stay healthy, (I AM a doctor, for Pete’s sake!) I got caught up in the stress of life’s moments over many years and ended up in a health crisis that could have been deadly. I had two surgeries in two weeks and spent 9 days in the hospital total.
Fortunately, everything turned out okay but it has literally taken me over 2 years to get back to being close to the OKAY state that I was in before the health crisis – which is still a long way from optimal health.
Now I’m continuing to improve my health, striving for optimal!
And, in the process of healing, I’ve become even more aware of the inter-relationships between health, wellness, and happiness. Personally. Intimately. Aware.
Once you’ve gone through the darkness and come out on the other side, you can help others navigate the darkness – or avoid it all together! I can help you.Dr. Jodie
I can help
Sometimes we need information to know what the next right thing to do is. But other times we need someone there beside us holding our hand each step of the way. I can do both.
Wherever you are in the scope of health, wellness, & happiness and wherever you are on your own personal journey, I support you.
And based on both my vast education in these areas and my own personal, ongoing experiences, I know a thing or two that can probably help you on your journey. And I’d love to do so!
Please let me know what areas of health, wellness and happiness interest you most and I’ll be happy to try to help you out by addressing those issues on the blog. While I am not going to deal with specific diseases or conditions, many generalities apply across the board.
Some fun facts…
Now a few fun facts about me… I’m Michigan born and raised but have lived in Georgia (6 months) and South Carolina (13 years.)
I am DEFINITELY a warm weather girl and the beach is my happy place!
Three great (grown) kids call me Mom and you met my wonderful husband above.
I love to laugh and have been told my laugh is infectious. It’s definitely unique (and probably a little annoying. LOL!)
I ADORE flamingos, pelicans, peacocks, stones and crystals, sea shells, manatees, sting rays, flowers & plants, and almost anything in nature, especially the ocean!
Although I’ve been retired for 2 years, I have been a chiropractor for over 30 years and despite my impressive stature at 5 feet, nothing tall, I could adjust even the biggest guys who came in my office but the kids and babies were my favorites!
Want to know anything else? Just ask! 😀
