Several statistics show that children of alcoholics will grow up to either become alcoholic themselves, or marry one because they’re so conditioned to that lifestyle. A huge part of that is because they could get so rooted in their own belief systems that they end up in self-sabotage without even realizing it. And somehow, transformation only occurs when intense suffering forces them to make that shift.

On today’s episode, Duane chats with Maggie Jenson, an alternative recovery coach. Maggie is the creator of The Magnify Method, an up-to-date, science-backed program devoted to personal development and overcoming addictive behavior. A behavioral change specialist, Maggie utilizes her knowledge in nutrition coaching and personal training in helping clients learn “to think different to drink different, or never again ” through practicing holistic Mind-Body-Soul recovery.

Maggie grew up in an alcoholic home, specifically, a mom who was alcoholic even until her death. Her biggest trauma was at 12 years old when her brother took away his life while they were home alone. Dealing with feelings of guilt and pain, Maggie started drinking six months after. And while her brother’s death was the reason that she began drinking, her father’s death, on the other hand, paved the way for her to make a radical shift. Listen in as Maggie shares more about her story, how to break free from your program, and how nutrition and fitness play a huge role in recovery.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • The impact of alcoholics on kids
  • How trauma is exacerbated when we don’t talk about it
  • What motivated her to pursue her passion for nutrition and fitness
  • The courage to take the risk to go against your self-limiting beliefs
  • It’s the little things that build up your confidence
  • How nutrition affects your mood and your belief system
  • The power of affirmation to override your program
