Cristina talks with Angie Alt about what’s been left unsaid in the holistic wellness space. Ignoring obstacles to holistic wellness like food insecurity, police violence, and generational trauma causes harm and real health consequences to communities of color. We need to be brave enough to imagine, address, and integrate a more holistic approach to wellness to make it accessible for everyone.
