Today’s show is a replay of an earlier broadcast.
Wall-to-Wall Carpets: The Good, the Bad, and What To Do If You Have Them In Your Home
Daliya Robson is my guest on this show. She became “a chemical injury statistic” while working as a realtor, viewing and showing toxic new homes or homes with new carpets, paints, and cabinets. After becoming extremely disabled in 1993 with multiple chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and a broken thyroid, Daliya started a website called The Nontoxic Hot Line to warn people of the dangers of all chemicals. Nirvana Safe Haven became the name of this website after she began providing healing healthy solutions for a nontoxic environment. After 20 years Daliya is still providing solutions for surviving in a toxic world. www.nontoxic.com

Health and Nutrition Coach on Diet and Detox
Today my guest is Wendy Myers, CHHC, NC, certified holistic health and nutrition coach and the founder, head writer and Chief Eating Officer of Liveto110.com. We’ll be talking about why the popular Paleo diet is not enough to achieve true health (I’ll be giving my comments about the Paleo diet too) and how heavy metals and chemicals are the underlying cause of disease. And we’ll talk a lot about detox. Wendy attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. She is certified in Hair Mineral Analysis and is currently seeking her masters in clinical nutrition at Bridgeport University in Connecticut. Wendy’s interest in nutrition began with the death of her father from esophageal cancer. She vowed to find out what made him sick, what role his treatment and medications played in his demise, and how she could avoid the same fate. The more Wendy learned, the more she realized that all the answers to health do not lie in our medical system. Food, detoxication and natural healing modalities must be used to compliment the advances in modern medicine. Thus, Liveto110.com was born. Wendy’s site aims to inform readers about how to achieve optimum health, energy and vitality. Liveto110.com empowers readers to improve their health through the Modern Paleo diet, hair mineral analysis, detoxication and natural treatments for their health conditions. Wendy urges visitors to take responsibility for their health by learning about alternative treatments for their health conditions. Liveto110.com

In addition, we’ll discuss how various natural supplements can affect your mood and feelings for better or for worse. Pamela is a 1990 graduate of the University of Florida College of Pharmacy. She has worked as an integrative pharmacist teaching physicians, pharmacists and the general public about the proper use of botanicals. She is also a grant reviewer for NIH in Washington D.C. and is the owner of Botanical Resource and Botanical Resource Med Spa in Clearwater, Florida. www.botanicalresource.com

The Glass Water Bottle That Restructures Tap Water to Be Like Spring Water
My guest today is Bryan Mours, President of Healthy Earth LLC, the US distributor for Flaska water bottles. We’ll be talking about how the quality of filtered water can be changed to be structured more like it exists in nature, just by storing it in a special bottle. In 2012, during a visit to California to visit with friends involved in causes driven towards health and environmental sustainability, he was introduced to Flaska, a glass refillable water bottle with amazing properties. Though not familiar with the product or the water structuring abilities it possessed, he set out on a mission to learn. After a trip to Slovenia, the home of Flaska, and many hours of reading, Bryan was convinced that this product was something he wanted to be involved with. It was not only made out of the safest material for storage and consumption of liquids but it was also made from the most highly recyclable product: glass. www.flaska.us
NOTE: Flaska bottles do NOT remove toxic pollutants from tap water. To achieve the full benefit of restructured water requires that you start with the purest water you can obtain. I recommend the filters from Pure Effect Water Filters.
