Detox As A Daily Routine

My guest today is Meghan Root, a certified fitness instructor who just launched a new website called Be Mighty Like Meghan. I like her site because she has good solid information about food, fitness, and detox, presented in a way that shows how she incorporates these principles in her daily life. She helps people create unique and customized routines that fit into busy schedules. “I prioritize creating healthy routines in my life that keep me organized and on track with my long term health goals. Having a plan and sticking to it the best way to remain in control of your health and wellness,” says Meghan. Her free ebook DIY Wellness outlines five fitness routines that you can customize for your own needs.



Living Toxic Free With Nine Children

What’s Happening With Toxic Free Talk Radio

The Monday after Christmas I was surprised to receive an email from the network saying they could no longer produce my radio show. They were very sorry because they loved the show, but changes on their end made it impossible for us to continue.

I love doing the show and it’s likely that live interviews will return at some point as podcasts or a radio show on another network, but for now I have my work cut out for me to transfer 386 mp3 files from the network site to mine, and change all the links in the archives. It will all be an upgrade though because my site will now have the shows directly in a media player that works with all devices.

I’m also going to continue making transcripts for all the shows that don’t already have transcripts, and edit all the files to remove commercials and music for a more seamless listening experience. These are great interviews and I am making sure they are being preserved for future reference.

Each week I’ll be posting three featured shows from the archives and include them in the newsletter. There is a lot to listen to and learn from!
