The Power Of Going Gray With Your Hair with Lisa from This Organic Girl

The Power Of Going Gray With Your Hair with Lisa from This Organic Girl

In episode #39 we are hearing the power of going gray with your hair with Lisa, from This Organic Girl.  Lisa is the face behind the blog, This Organic Girl.  Where she blogs about all things clean living, natural beauty and healthy eats.  For the last two years she’s taken her readers on the ups and downs of going gray and what sparked the whole journey in the first place. She went all in with green living just a few years ago. It was the cumulation of a couple of things that happened which brought her into “her awareness” as she calls it.  She started wondering what the hype was with “organics” and if it was really a thing or just another sales tactic. Her mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor for the fourth time, her little one was suffering from Eczema and then one day her friend Angela said to her, “Did you know they wash chickens in chlorine?”

Pretty much from that moment on Lisa was on a quest to know and went hardcore all-in.  She went crazy turning over all of her products including toothpaste, deodorant and Tupperware containers.  She threw out the kids fluoride and hydrocortisone cream. Out went the Clorox wipes and the stainless steel cleaner. Dryer sheets were a thing of the past. Forget refined sugars – they didn’t even stand a chance.  She started making my own toothpaste and makeup, she didn’t eat out, she wouldn’t even look at processed or refined food. Vinegar became my best friend. Those were the dark days…. Then after some time and some serious label reading, She realized she could actually rejoin society and still make safe decisions for her family.  Everyday more organic options, healthy restaurants, products, food stores and resources are becoming available.  Not only is Lisa passionate about spreading the message but also enjoying living out her best natural life.  After all nontoxic living is anything but boring!

The Power Of Essential Oils With Osmia Organic’s Founder Sarah Villafranco, MD

The Power Of Essential Oils With Osmia Organic’s Founder Sarah Villafranco, MD

Sarah is an ER Doctor turned soap maker.  After almost ten years of practice, she became unsettled about the course of her career. She liked the work, and was good at it. But the practice of emergency medicine was not what she thought it would be. The paperwork. The dictations. The constant hum of worry in her brain about the existence of human error – that she could miss something with a potentially devastating result. And there was the upsetting fact that many of the patients she cared for had absolutely no interest in contributing to their own health.

She leased a commercial space in Carbondale, Colorado.  She put together a green facility with a small retail space, a soap making area, a perfumery station, and two “clean rooms” (clean room attire required) for making skin care products. She launched the store and the website in April of 2012. This is where she operates today.

She loves what she does now more than she could have ever have imagined.  She does miss a few things about being in the ER, but, in some ways, feels like she is practicing a broader medicine now – helping people choose natural and organic skin care products, encouraging them to nourish themselves physically and spiritually, and detoxifying their medicine cabinets all the while. Guiding people to make healthier choices for their skin, their bodies, their minds, and this beautiful planet seems like a brand of medicine that could really do some good.

What are some common misconceptions you find people believe about essential oils that aren’t true, or things you wished they knew?
  • When differentiating between essential oil fragrance and synthetic fragrance what are the main differences someone should understand? Is there anything specific on a label?
  • Can you share about the power of essential oil quality and sourcing?  Is there a difference- should we be looking for organic?
  • Often you hear of people taking essential oils internally- what is your take on this and is it safe?
  • Can you share your top 3 essential oils and how you incorporate them into your life?
  • I get this question a lot and would love to have you share your thoughts. I know you have a blog post too about it. What are your thoughts on essential oils during pregnancy?
  • A question we ask all our guests- what are 3 health habits that have made the biggest impact on your health?

The Power Of Ayurveda For Health with Angela Glaz

The Power Of Ayurveda For Health with Angela Glaz

In this episode we are learning the power of Ayurveda in health with Angela.  Angela first began her practice of meditation and yoga in 2002 to alleviate chronic back pain and symptoms of depression. Since then, Angela has come along way! She has been lucky enough to travel to India twice to study Yoga and Ayurveda and deepen her own practice. She completed her studies through Himalaya Yoga Valley, an internationally accredited yoga program, located in Goa, India. In her program, she studied yoga under Yogacharya Lalit, who has studied under Sri BKS Iyengar, Sri K Pattabhi Jois, Sri Sharath Jois, and Sri BNS Iyengar, and studied Ayurveda under Dr. Rohit Borkar. Most recently, she has completed the Ayurvedic Counseling program through Kerala Ayurveda Academy.

She has a genuine passion for teaching all things and finds joy in encouraging her students to explore their own unique gifts. That passion and belief in honoring every individual’s unique qualities is what drove Angela to create and open what is now Eka Yoga.

Angela teaches with Midwest heart, West Coast soul, and enough quirkiness to make the most cynical crack a smile.

When not teaching yoga, you’ll most likely find Angela urban hiking with her fur baby (Desta the dachshund) or getting experimental with cooking in the kitchen.
