This podcast conversation featured Suzanne Proksa, an HR and business strategist, and Christina Martin, an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist. They discussed the importance of spring cleaning for your body and how environmental concerns such as toxins from cities or even farms can negatively impact people's health. The conversation highlighted that toxins can be found in food, water, beauty products, plastics, and even emotional toxicity.

It was noted that when the body is overburdened with toxins it can lead to an increase in free radicals which can cause oxidation inside cells and open the door to diseases and cancers. The conversation also touched on people who have food sensitivities or allergies but may not be aware due to a lack of medical attention given to this issue.

This podcast discussed the benefits of an elimination diet which is a temporary diet that eliminates common intolerances, allergies, and inflammatory foods for 21 days. After the 21 days are complete participants can reintroduce these foods one by one to see how their body responds. The speaker leads a program every year in the spring that helps people reset their bodies and get rid of bad habits they may have picked up during the pandemic.

Benefits of this program include getting rid of toxic overloads so people feel unstuck and better overall.
