We had the good fortune of connecting with Josie Warren and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Josie, what is the most important factor behind your success?
My success lies in living what I teach. There is no way I could help my students in the way I do without knowing their struggles with autoimmune disorders from my own experience, and teaching from my own experience of becoming fully healthy.
Everything I teach I have lived, I know it inside out because every step and concept has been instrumental in my own journey of outgrowing my autoimmune disorders and living a life I am proud of. I am simply myself. What my students see is exactly what they get. Teaching women how to outgrow Hashimoto’s and autoimmune disorders is what I am an expert in.
I know where my students are coming from. I can see the world from their perspective because I used to live in their shoes. I used to have 8 autoimmune disorders. I know the challenges they face, both physically and emotionally, and can speak to them from a deep place of knowing and understanding. This is rare in my field. The other professionals teach people how to manage their autoimmune symptoms. I know I am the only professional in this field who teaches women how to become fully healthy, living life free of Hashimoto’s and autoimmune disorders, and I am proud to do it from my own experience.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am excited to let women know they can become healthy from Hashimoto’s and their autoimmune disorders, and they do not need supplements, restrictive food diets, or medication to do so. Everything I teach, I know from my own experience. I am over 5 years completely healthy and free of autoimmune disorders. I see myself as a guiding light, taking women from a life of illness into a healthy life of their choosing.
After rapidly outgrowing my autoimmune disorders and symptoms, I was in training for 5 years preparing myself to teach. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is to get back up and keep going. Life is naturally going to throw curve balls and the unexpected. Getting back up and learning from my life has shown me I can depend on myself. I have my own back. I know that no matter what comes my way, I will be ok.
I have also learned that I determine the life I have. By learning that I am where I am because of me, I empowered myself to be in charge of myself and my health. I create my life and I am actively carving the path I travel. I am excited to see how I continue to grow both personally and professionally. My self-growth and development are the most important aspects of my life. My continued learning about myself and my life allows me to be a dynamic and effective teacher and mentor.
My path has not been without challenges, but it is because of my challenges and life experiences that I have gained the wisdom to be able to help my students to the depth I do. I could not ask for a more fulfilling and meaningful career. I have the opportunity to watch my students transform their lives and their health on a daily basis. I love what I do, and I know teaching women to become healthy from Hashimoto’s and autoimmune disorders is not only my passion but my purpose in life.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I always say that if I wasn’t a teacher, I would be a tour guide. I love exploring hidden gems and discovering the history of the land.
Colorado is a special state to me. My family homesteaded here in 1887 and I have always felt a strong connection to the prairie.
If I had a week, I would want to give my friend an overview of Denver, and then introduce them to the wonders of the mountains.
For the first few days, I would stay local and take them to a few favorite spots. We would walk around Wash Park, eat tacos and Vietnamese off Federal, take scooters to RiNo and explore the street art, and enjoy some breweries and food halls. I love art and animals, and would also take them to the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Denver Zoo. Somewhere in there, I would make sure we could run up and down a few rows of Red Rocks and take in the view.
After Denver, we would venture to one of my favorite hikes, Diamond Lake, near Eldora, Colorado. We would spend the day hammocking and taking in the waterfalls and wildflowers.
After that, we would pack up the car with my cooler and tent and hit the road. Road trips are my favorite way to explore Colorado. With the few days left I would do a loop from 1-70 to Glenwood Springs, through Carbondale and Aspen, Leadville, and back to Denver. There are so many fun little towns and hikes to explore along the way. I would make sure we jumped in Devil’s Punchbowl, hit a hot spring, paddle boarded the Ruedi Reservoir, hiked Cathedral Lake, and just took in the amazing scenery. We would do some dispersed camping near Aspen and Twin Lakes, and stay in a campground near Basalt.
By the end of the week, they would get a great overview of what Colorado has to offer, and learn why I love to call this state home.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Without a doubt I would not be here and doing what I am doing without the gudiance and support of David Cope, Peggy Lit, and Karyn Seitz- my team at Anew Life Center.
I came into the Anew Life Center over 5 years ago as a client. I had spent years trying to figure out myself and my health, going from specialist to specialist, doctor to doctor, all the while accumulating more autoimmune disorders and symptoms. By my late 20’s, I had reached the end of my rope. I felt broken and weighed down by my health, my life experiences, and my emtional state. This was not how I had envisioned the beginning of my young adult life.
They helped me see that I was the root of my issues, and thus I could be the solution. They empowered me to help myself, to be honest with myself for the first time, and to learn how to build a relationship with myself. Through their love and guidance, I was able to rapidly outgrow my autoimmune disorders and all of my symptoms. They have served as my ongoing mentors and teachers, and work with me to continue to develop and grow my program and who I am as a teacher.
Everything I teach is based on David Cope’s 15 years of work, teaching others to outgrow their chronic illnesses and autoimmune disorders as he has done. I feel blessed to call him my mentor and it is my passion to bring this option of health and healing to the greater world.
