Show Info

Sparking Wholeness is not your typical health show. Erin Kerry is not your typical health coach. As a survivor of bipolar disorder, she has learned firsthand what it is like to deal with and manage a chronic illness.

This show brings together health experts from various fields in order to discuss popular wellness topics and offer hope and support for mental health issues. Whether it's addressing trauma, healing the gut microbiome, biohacking genes, addressing body image concerns, or exploring the struggles of motherhood and parenting, every episode is designed to spark wholeness.

Show Premiere - Living with the Stigma of Bipolar Disorder

Exactly 20 years ago, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

But I didn't go public about it until a year and a half ago.

Why? The stigma, the jokes, the complete misunderstanding and misinformation about what bipolar disorder really is.

Here's what it is:

It's like depression with some really fun occasional breaks in between that help me get stuff done... but it can complete wear me out and shut me down. 

It's like the Queen song "Don't Stop Me Now" mixed with Gary Jules' "Mad World."

It's like Texas weather, dropping 50 degrees in a day for a cold front that is unexpected with duration uncertain.

But most of all - it IS manageable and it doesn't have to hinder quality of life or functioning. 

Like I said, I hid it for a long time. I'm learning how to manage it through a variety of tools - gut health, nutrition, movement, sleep, talk therapy.

On the first episode of Sparking Wholeness, I share my entire journey in a way I never have before.

If you haven't struggled with mental health issues, that's amazing and I'm so happy for you. But chances are, someone close to you needs hope. Someone close to you needs a step toward healing.

And that's just what this show is intended to do - it's just another way to spark a little fire towards wholeness. 

Tune in. Share this message with a friend. And stay tuned for future episodes!
