On episode 338 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews board-certified nurse body image coach, entrepreneur, and thought leader Alyssa Saquilayan regarding the myriad aspects of eating disorders, dysmorphia, and other crucial issues that have a powerful impact on the lives on countless men and women in dire need of compassionate support and healing.
Alyssa Saquilayan, BSN, RN, NC-BC (she/her) is a Board-Certified Nurse Coach, Yoga Teacher, and Reiki Practitioner who empowers women of color to heal their body image holistically by bridging science, spirituality, and culture so that they can have more joy. As a 2nd-gen Filipina American recovering from a binge eating disorder, she recognizes that there aren’t enough safe spaces for women of color to discuss their body image. It’s her soul calling to co-create transformation and prevent eating disorders by helping others feel liberated beyond their body image and embody the full expression of themselves.
