Molly Sanders Talks About Her Highly Effective, Results-Driven, 100% Online Wellness Programs

As someone who binge ate for years…I know what frustration, resignation, and guilt around food feels like. As someone who overcame binge eating, I know what it’s like on the other side of that. Binge eating may not be your thing, but everyone has something they can’t quite handle about their health and nutrition. Now, I’m on a mission to change the global state of health from sick-care to health-care: where we spend more time tending to our health vs. managing our illness.

Combining her holistic training and years working in content, publishing, and online education, Molly Sanders has created highly effective, results-driven, 100% online wellness programs. She has helped thousands of people look past what they put in their mouths and to get real (pun intended) about what it takes to truly heal and make changes that last.

Molly graduated with honors from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in 2015. She also holds a dual B.A. in Literature and Modern Languages from Kansas State University. Molly has been featured on the cover of Future Female Magazine, in Thrive Magazine, quoted in Fashion Magazine, and been a guest on That Badass Podcast among others.
