The holidays are here! We’ll help you get through them with holiday health hacks from Suzy Hardy, Laura Powers and Allison Melody!
Have you tried CBD? Suzy’s company, CBD Fountain, makes quality Hemp CBD products to help you and your family achieve optimal health and well being.
CBD Fountain was born when founder, Suzy Hardy created the body lotion for her own back pain. After trying another CBD topical that was expensive, smelled bad and didn’t work very well, Suzy got some Hemp CBD oil and created a body lotion that she would want to buy as a customer. It relieved her pain! She gave it to friends and family with different issues, from carpal tunnel to torn meniscus to bulging discs and they felt relief too! A business was born and each product has a story behind it.

Next up, Laura Powers joins Suzy and Alli to discuss their top 2019 health hacks! Here are the highlights:
Do a Parasite Cleanse! Bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites — there are many types of harmful organisms and nearly everyone is affected at some point in their life. Harmful organisms are ones that live off another by living on or in them. Essentially, the harmful organism takes up residence in the host. In this relationship, harmful organisms steal nutrients and release waste to negatively affect the overall health of the host wreaking havoc on our microbiome. Get your gut in check by doing a parasite cleanse!
Cleanse with Clay! Diatomaceous earth is a naturally-formed sedimentary mineral rock. It’s derived from the remains of diatoms, or oceanic unicellular algae.  Diatoms are over 30 million years old and are formed from the cementation of microscopic algae-like plant remains into the earth’s surface. These clay-like, chalky remains are usually found in the form of a thick, white, siliceous powder known as diatomaceous earth.  Often used to support body cleansing, some research also suggests it’s a natural tool for promoting normal blood lipids, detoxing toxic metals, and fighting harmful intestinal organisms.
Sweat it Out! Infrared saunas use infrared lamps (that use electromagnetic radiation) to warm your body directly. “These saunas use infrared panels instead of conventional heat to easily penetrate human tissue, heating up your body before heating up the air,” explains physical therapist, Vivian Eisenstadt, MAPT, CPT, MASP. Infrared is so safe it is regularly used in hospitals to keep newborn babies warm. Infrared and infrared saunas have been researched and studied for decades. Doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists use infrared every day in clinics and hospitals around the world to ameliorate pain, heal skin conditions, increase flexibility and generally help heal the body.

Release with Trigger Point Therapy! We all have stress. And when we put stress on a muscle, it can cause that muscle to tighten. And even after the stress is gone, that muscle tightness can remain. Many health issues and pain stem from this muscular stress, and that’s where trigger point therapy comes in! Depending on where your pain is, determines which trigger point needs to be addressed. You can use the Trigger Point Therapy Workbook to walk you through the process of how to massage the correct trigger points to find relief.

Heal with Cryotherapy! Cryotherapy sounds scary, but it’s not! The idea is to expose your body to below freezing temperatures for just a couple of minutes which causes your body to enter a state of healing itself. It can be targeted to specific parts of the body. Many places offer cryo facials and Alli has had it on her feet after wearing heels for a long period of time. It may help with pain, muscle healing, weight loss, eczema, inflammation and more!
Detox with an Ionic Foot Spa This can be done at various spas and you can also get a machine for your own home! The machine works by ionizing the foot bath water to give the hydrogen a positive charge which is said to pull toxins out through your feet. Suzy has been doing it for years and loves it!
Alli recommends: BHC’s Detox Foot Bath Machine
