#6 – Advice For Athletes From An Orthopedic Physician’s Assistant


Our awesome guest for today is Tanya Zucco. Tanya was formerly a professional water-skier and currently is an elite triathlete, physician’s assistant specializing in orthopedic surgery, wellness nut, and holistic lifestyle consultant.

After a friend introduced Tanya to essential oils, she quickly fell in love with holistic wellness. She had been experiencing pain and breakdown in her own body, and felt that many of the patients she was seeing weren’t getting what they really needed.

When Tanya began seeing great improvements in her own health after adding in some wellness practices, she decided she needed to share her message with others. She says “there’s this big misconception that you have to eat all this meat and sugar and bars and stuff, and that’s just not the way it has to be. You can be very kind to your body and be an elite athlete.”
