”It’s either a success or you're learning something, there's no such thing as failure!
Dr Janna Scharfenberg, is the host of the acclaimed German Podcast In Good Health, and epitomises the essence of creative flexibility and entrepreneurial thinking. She’s a trained medical doctor, who after five years of study realised that the classic “fix them once their broken” focus of western medicine didn’t match her desire to empower people about their own health.
In her final year of study she faced her inner fears, threw overboard society’s expectations of what a doctor should be and decided instead to become the type of doctor she wished to – one who focused on health education and prevention.
Today, in addition to her MD, Janna is specialised in Ayurvedic Medicine and Yoga. She’s a doctor, a podcaster, an author, a coach, a workshop leader, a keynote speaker and a mum who built a business around giving you the tools you need to live a healthy, empowered life.
