Today I’m delighted to share a chat I had with Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple. Amie has dealt with a plethora of health issues over the years, turning to more alternative methods after she’d exhausted her allopathic options without improving her condition.
Over the years, Amie was diagnosed with Lyme disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, heavy metal toxicity and more. And throughout, she maintained a positive attitude and openness to new approaches. Here, she discusses various treatments she used to heal and how she maintains a productive and happy life while doing so.
Amie is a wealth of knowledge on detoxing and many other topics related to holistic healing. I was thrilled to have this talk as a resource, especially since I’ll be starting my own detox protocol next week! Have a listen–and then let us know what you think.
Do you detox yearly, monthly, or more regularly? Have you ever seen benefits from detoxing? And what does “detoxing” entail for you?
[Note: there was a small technical glitch about midway and my voice has a slight echo. Apologies! I’m still learning and will find out how to prevent that next time.]
