Hi, I’m Dr. Juna, your guide for this course.
I am a mom of two amazing kids and a physician who changed tracks from clinical medicine to become a Stress Management and Resilience Specialist 10 years ago. I had always been a firm believer that prevention is worth a pound of cure and when I became a mom, that became my main focus. I was fascinated and researched topics that could broaden my understanding on how to keep my kids well and prevent the common diseases.
I became fascinated with Mind-Body Medicine, which teaches that our thoughts, which influence are behaviors, can affect our health down to the cellular genomic level!
I started taking courses and intensives at the Benson Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine at Harvard Medical School in 2010 and I was so inspired that I dedicated my career to teaching as many kids and moms as I could. In my mind, it's never too early to start and it's never too late!
