It's not often you get to seek the wisdom of a 102-year-old, but when it's a still-consulting doctor and life coach, you know you're in for a profound conversation.

I was absolutely honoured to speak with the inspiring and fascinating Dr Gladys McGarey, who is 102 years old at the time of her new book’s publication. I read her wonderful book, A Well-Lived Life, and loved every page and the spiritual wisdom she shared - I had many epiphanies after each chapter.

After spotting the signs of a neurodivergent brain - she shares her dyslexia, learning and education journey - I knew I had to reach out to her team and ask her to join the podcast! This episode was recorded at 8 am Dr Gladys's time in Arizona and she was as fresh as a daisy, with all the recording tech in place.

During our conversation, Dr Gladys shares her story of having been held back in her early years of education due to undiagnosed dyslexia and how through her different way of learning and being curious, she is now recognised as a pioneer of the allopathic and holistic medical movements and a founding diplomat of the American Board of Holistic Medicine. She is also the co-founder and past president of the American Holistic Medical Association, the Academy of Parapsychology and Medicine, and the founder of The International Academy of Clinical Hypnosis. She has spoken at TEDx.

In today's ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Kate and Dr Gladys discuss:

How love improves all aspects of lifeWhat Gladys believes to be the true life force Being a pioneer of Holistic medicineSpeaking out for what you believe inAccepting what you can't change Positive reinforcements in childhood The power of being accepted Gladys's experience of education while being undiagnosed dyslexic in a rural Indian village
