Body Wise Podcast Hosts

I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with co-hosts of the Body Wise podcast and sisters Cristina Curp, NTP and Laura Mar sexual health educator to chat about my self-healing journey through autoimmune Vulvar Lichen Sclerosus, Hashimoto’s, and Vulvar Cancer. This is probably the most real, raw, and vulnerable conversation I’ve had when sharing my story.

I have followed Cristina Curp and her healing journey at The Castaway Kitchen for years. I admire her fire for all things food, self-healing, and advocacy. When Cristina announced the Body Wise podcast and that Laura Mar would be her co-host, I immediately reached out to see if my story would be a good fit for her audience. I have fallen in love with Laura listening to the Body Wise podcast, she’s such a strong advocate for women’s sexual health and I love to hear her voice amplified.

Real, Raw, and Vulnerable

The Body Wise Podcast Episode 28 - Life After Vulvar Cancer with Heather Cooan

I’m not playing. These ladies were so easy to talk to that we really got into the nitty gritty about the impact of autoimmune vulvar lichen sclerosus and vulvar cancer on my sex life, sexual function, ability to be intimate, ability to love and trust my body, and lots of other juicy details that I’ve never talked about publicly.

This is important information to share to help bring awareness to these diseases. There is life after these diseases, you can heal, you can restore your life completely. I will continue to put myself on display to share this message. Don’t give up!
