About Megan Blacksmith

Megan Blacksmith (Health Coach, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner) and Dr. Alex Golden (M.D.) are the co-founders of Zesty Ginger, a company founded on the principles of compassionate transformation. They help women restore optimal health through a combination of functional medicine, mindset, and subconscious reprogramming. 

With over ten years of personal health struggles overlooked by conventional medicine, such as chronic pain and endometriosis for Dr. Alex, and Megan’s postpartum health crash and anxiety, they vow to make medicine and health easier to navigate.

They believe that when we consider health from the perspective of the mind, body, heart, AND soul, we allow ourselves to resolve our fragmentation. The fragmentation results from living in a world that breaks us down into categories and addresses problems by organ systems. Instead, healing comes from wholeness.


The Connection Between Beliefs, Actions, and Results

Throughout this episode, Megan speaks to why actions will often fall short if they are not backed up by our thoughts and beliefs. This partially explains why clients who just want to be told what to do often struggle the most. Instead, Megan explains how to help clients best by aligning your advice with their own intuitions and feelings.

This means helping people slow down to better listen to what their body is telling them. This can be an uncomfortable process. Yet, it will help them understand what parts are important to them and help align the program with their beliefs for improved results.


The Strategy of Shifting Subconscious Belief Systems

Not everyone is naturally good at reframing beliefs. To help, Megan suggests modeling off of someone’s strategies who has already accomplished what you’re after. When you surround yourself with strategies and ideas you want to achieve for yourself, they can come to you more naturally.

She also advises reframing your thoughts to focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. The subconscious mind hears your thoughts and takes them on. If you only speak to yourself in the negatives, your subconscious will take those on. Instead, by rewording your goals as positives, you’ll better be able to discover the path to success.

“People were able to do the same things they were already doing, maybe the same protocol and foods, and start to get results. It really did seem like magic.” [11:17]

“We need to be totally clear in our role [as coaches] and totally clear on our stuff, meaning any fears or triggers we have.” [23:00]

“Perception is projection…. What you’re seeing outside of you is what you have inside of you.” [46:53]

“When you get into the quantum physics of it and what the brain is physically wired to do and why it starts to become so obvious as to why you would care about this.” [1:01:23]
