EP217: Fasting, Nontoxic Products & Personal Transformation with Wellness Mama


Many of the personal care products on the market today are FILLED with toxic chemicals linked to detrimental health outcomes. 

And while we’d like to believe the FDA will protect us from these dangerous ingredients, it actually has FAR less oversight and power than we’d like to believe. 

Which is why it's absolutely vital we educate ourselves and support companies making truly non-toxic products. 

The only problem? 

Many of the “clean” products on the market simply don’t work. 

Most of the hair care products I’ve used, for example, leave my hair dry and dull. 

Fortunately, that’s all about to change because one of the most influential people in health and wellness, The Wellness Mama, joins us today to talk all things fasting, toxins, non-toxic personal care products. 

She’s spent the last decade researching and perfecting products that not only eliminate toxic chemicals, but that also add nourishing ingredients. 

So if you’re ready to ditch the toxins (and dull, dry hair) and upgrade your personal care routine, tune in NOW!

We cover these fascinating topics: 

  • The ingredient found in “natural” toothpaste that can harm your teeth
  • The ingredient that can actually HEAL certain cavities
  • The herb that makes your hair to grow stronger and longer
  • The vitamin that can cure acne 
  • The 3 healthy habits Katie does daily
  • The health hack Katie wishes she used more
  • The benefits of cold water therapy and sauna (and when to use them!)
  • How to curb cravings during a fast
  • Body image issues (and how to break through them)

This was one of the most inspiring podcasts I’ve recorded to date, which is why I couldn’t wait to share it as we start the new year.

I hope you love it as much as I did.  

Happy New Year, Wellness Warriors!
