Daring Spirit Update: Erin Holt of Erin Holt Health

Erin is one of the most down to earth, inspiring, real people we know. We love working with her and we are thrilled to have her more involved in Daring Spirits. She is back this week to share some of the exciting things she has been cooking up!

In addition, we want to announce our partnership with her. We now feature her Health Coaching and Fueled+Fit program as well as rely on her expertise as a BeautyCounter consultant (more on that stuff later) here at Daring Spirits.

Let's get to it...

Daring Spirits: What have you and the Universe been up to since we last connected? 

Erin: Things have been good here. Really, really good. I wake up each morning and thank the universe for giving me both the courage and support to follow my dreams and co-create a life that I love. Physically, I feel great. The scary diagnosis I mentioned last time launched me into a year+ of research and growth. Here's what good has come out of it:

1. I have made myself my own priority. If we're constantly at the bottom of the heap, we WILL get sick. I learned this the hard way, but I don't want other women to have to. So much of what I have learned this year has trickled into my nutrition programs and my work with clients. It has really been a win-win.

2.  I have seen firsthand how many factors play into our health - not just food. This has impacted my decisions both personally and professionally.

I am now, more than ever, focused on teaching people about removing toxins from their lives. Environmental toxins absolutely, positively contribute to disease. We're not only getting these toxins in through the food we eat, but also what we put on our skin. This year, I started working with a company called Beautycounter, who create gorgeous, high-performing, SAFE skincare and cosmetics, and are also looking to change legislation around what is allowed in our products. The majority of people believe that the FDA regulates skincare ingredients, and that what we buy in stores is safe. The truth is that they DON'T, and they're NOT. We have only banned 11 cosmetic ingredients in this country. Europe has restricted over 1,400. This is unacceptable. 

The autoimmune disease I have is heavily linked to environmental toxicity. The universe dropped a bomb in my lap last year, but I took it as a call to action. I gladly answered that call. I am nothing if not a voice piece, and I am passionate about spreading the word on health, and providing people with the resources to achieve it.

Daring Spirits: What amazing things are you looking to do next?

Erin: My Fueled+Fit program has gained a lot of traction and attention of people both near and far. I will continue to run this 21 day online nutrition & wellness program through my website, as well as collaborate with other businesses. This fall, I am bringing my nutrition work to Bikram's Biggest Losers, a 3 month program that encourages people with a BMI of 30+ to practice yoga and put themselves FIRST. 

My goal is to empower people with information about health, with the confidence to go achieve it AND with an opportunity to co-create their own life...and business. I am currently welcoming women to my Beautycounter team - a fun hustle with a social mission!

For me, this is the year of no fear, the year of just going for it. The only thing we have to lose is baggage. And to that I say, "Bye, Felicia."

Daring Spirits: Chocolate or vanilla? Night owl or early bird? Dog or cat?

Erin: Dark chocolate ALL DAY.

Early bird (I have a 2 year old. She has decided this for me).

Definitely dog.

Daring Spirits:  Thank you, Erin, for inspiring us. We join you on the "year of no fear and going for it!"
