Chronically Healing Podcast

Dec 30, 2020

Today’s podcast is with the community manager of StuffThatWorks, Maya Geller.

Maya takes us through her journey with a very intimate and life-altering issue she dealt with for almost half of her life with absolutely no relief for a long time. It wasn’t until Maya shared about her experience in a Facebook group that she found out there were many other women out there dealing with a similar issue.

From there, Maya continued on her journey which brought her to StuffThatWorks. “StuffThatWorks helps people learn which treatments work best for their condition using smart, AI-based crowdsourcing.”

I can’t wait for you to hear the crazy turbulent story of Maya’s chronic condition, how she’s doing now and how StuffThatWorks can be a great partner on your healing journey. Let’s dive in!

In today’s episode we chat about:

  • Maya’s story as a young girl with a constant itch in a very intimate area that just wouldn’t go away for over 15 years

  • Dealing with a very intimate chronic issue that doctors had no idea where it was coming from

  • She refused to believe this was going to be her life forever and started the search on her own to find other ways to relieve it with all kinds of medicine and healing

  • Being diagnosed with multiple issues including dermatitis and gluten allergies, but it never FULLY went away

  • The importance of community on your healing journey and why she decided to start working for Stuff That Works

  • How Stuff That Works helps those with chronic illness and issues find others going through the same things as them
