This post is for all of my wine lover friends out there! I have been enjoying the weekly podcasts that Dr. Josh Handt puts out covering a wide variety of topics.
In this show, Josh interviews Todd White, who is the founder of Dry Farm Wines. They cover a lot of ground in this show including how Todd founded the company and how he has been Keto for the last 5 years. They then go deeper into what makes Dry Farm Wines so different than all of the other wines you are buying today.
One of the more interesting takeaways is the fact that wines produced in the U.S. are not regulated like all other foods and beverages. Have you ever thought it was strange that wine doesn’t have an ingredient list? You probably think it is just fermented grapes… think again! There are some 75 toxins and chemicals that can show up in the typical wines you are buying today. If a label was needed, many wine ingredient lists would look similar to highly processed foods!

I get most of my book recommendations by reading books that recommend other books and also from the many podcasts I listen to. Last fall, I was in Scottsdale at a customer convention. I had some time in between the daily sessions and dinner, so I went for a walk on the golf course.
I had just received the recommendation to listen to the Lifestyle Locker Radio podcast from my chiropractor. I had already listened to a couple and I liked the weekly conversations. The next one in queue was about essential oils. The guest on the podcast was Eric Zielinski, author of The Healing Power of Essential Oils.
Up until this point, my knowledge on essential oils was pretty limited. After listening to this podcast, I was blown away, so much so that I ordered the book that day. If essential oils interest you and you are trying to remove toxic things from your life, I highly recommend this book. The author has all kinds of great tips and recipes that you can easily work into your daily routine.
A small example of something I did was with body lotion. Rather than use store bought lotions with ingredients I cannot pronounce, I used the recipe from the book. It’s pretty straight forward, fractionated coconut oil with three essential oils; orange, peppermint and rosemary. The author does not endorse any essential oil company. I did my research and landed on Rocky Mountain Oils. So far I have been very happy with their products, customer service and free shipping on all orders!
Another example of something I am going to try is with cologne. I have worn cologne every day of my life up until this past year. After learning more and more about how things put on our skin is so quickly and easily absorbed into our bodies, I have been much more cautious about what I am using. I recently received the following recipes for both cologne and perfume. It’s a great way to use something you know is not some synthetic fragrance with serious effects on the body (especially the brain) and have been linked to Alzheimer’s, dementia, auto-immunity and even cancer.
