I had been admiring the work of Shiva Rose for years, and love her beautiful book Whole Beauty.

I love each of my podcast conversations as I find each guest so interesting and I learn so much from them!

[0:24] Guest introduction.
Often sick as a child, Nita Ewald explains that she got "sick of being sick."
Then, from around age 29-30, with a masters in chemistry, she started wondering, What's in my personal care products?
This curiosity led her to become more interested in the toxic chemicals in her everyday products--even before she became interested in healthy eating.
As Nita learned about the toxicity in her household products-- like her lotions and shampoo--Nita detoxed her...

If you are interested in infrared saunas and their health benefits, then this episode will help. My guest is Connie Zack, co-owner of Sunlighten infrared saunas.
I was excited to speak to Connie because I have spent a lot of time researching infrared saunas. After hearing a few people talk about how helpful it was to spend time in infrared saunas, I didn't need much convincing that I wanted one too.
I heard amazing experiences...
