Hello, D-Tox Community!

We hope you're finding helpful remedies during this tough allergy season. As our children's school nurse emailed recently, even though each year it's often said that "this is the worst allergy season" ever, this year, is truly the worst allergy season ever. I have been struck by how much our 4-year-old daughter has been suffering: swollen, stingy eyes; and severe congestion at night.

Stinging Nettle Tea

If you're still looking for natural remedies, check out our blog post on stinging nettle. My team member, Eden, introduced me to stinging nettle tea as it really helps her immunity and allergy responses. I've been lucky this season and have not noticed allergy symptoms in myself, but found learning about stinging nettle fascinating!

Pillars of Health

Last week, I hosted my first Innovators of Wellness event. It was quite amazing to think of the idea in early January, and realize the dream by May 4!

I'm so grateful for the participation of five trailblazers in wellness: Dr. Frank Lipman, an internationally-recognized expert in integrative medicine; Abby Levy, President of Thrive Global;  Melanie Whelan, CEO of SouCycle; Melisse Gelula, Co-founder and Chief Content Officer of Well + Good; and Greg Gushée, EVP of Related Companies. It was fascinating to research each speaker and ask them questions. Each speaker enjoyed about a ten-minute spotlight, and then we talked as a group. Each person involved was so whole-heartedly giving in their contributions.
