||CleanSeason Two Preview||For season two, we asked ourselves: how can we move beyond illness, and closer to wellness? To answer this, we went back to the basics of what ‘integrative health’ really means. In the next six episodes, we unpack the idea that your overall health has a lot to do with the health of certain key relationships in your life. For example, how well do you get along with your doctor? What’s your attitude towards the food you eat? How do you feel about the environment where you spend most of your time? And just as importantly, how would you rate your relationship with yourself? Our guests give us a glimpse into what life is like for them: from their struggles all the way through to the way they define wellness today. Their vulnerability and their willingness to share their story are really what define this podcast: we can all benefit when we share our journeys and connect with the healing power of storytelling.||8/15/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
