In this episode of Nateurious, you’ll learn from a fellow Italian and expert on quick, nutritious cooking, Pamela Salzman. With a popular blog, two cookbooks, online cooking classes, and a 4-week plant-based bootcamp, Pamela has shown that healthy meals can be made in just 30 minutes, so long as you use the proper ingredients and cookware.  Many people don’t realize the amount of toxins present in their daily diets. By making some simple changes—like opting for tomatoes packaged in glass jars instead of aluminum cans, using unrefined oils, and steering clear of non-stick pans—you can dramatically reduce your exposure to heavy metals. Not only will this improve your overall health, it will give you youthful, glowing skin (an absolute must for my Agent Nateur women). Needless to say, this episode is guaranteed to change the way you think about healthy eating. Tune in to learn all about Pamela’s new book, Quicker Than Quick, her efficient approach to making family meals, the secret to purchasing clean ingredients without breaking the bank, key ways to streamline the way you cook, and more.   FIND PAMELA SALZMAN ONLINE: Pamela’s website: Pamela on Instagram: @pamelasalzman Pamela on Facebook: Pamela on YouTube: Pamela’s book, Quicker Than Quick: Want more Nateurious?

The story of how fluoride became added to the drinking water in the United States is shocking. Even more outrageous, though we now know the dangers of fluoridated water (osteoporosis, cancer, bone lesions, etc.), there is still little that can be done to stop the lobbying that forces municipalities to put untested fluoride in their community’s water. This is why it’s so important that we take our health into our own hands and work with someone we trust to filter all of the water coming into our homes, not just our drinking water. In this inspiring episode of Nateurious, Rick Allen shares the ugly truth about our nation’s tap water and offers valuable tips on how to find the best filtration system for your lifestyle and budget.   FIND RICK ALLEN ONLINE: Pure Elements’ Website: Want more Nateurious?

Women’s health has been left out of the conversation in Western medicine for too long. Fortunately, naturopathic MDs—like Dr. Carrie Jones—are here to change that. Dr. Jones describes herself as a “modern doc with a holistic bent who can appreciate the best of both worlds,” and I think that attitude is precisely what we need to find the harmonious middle ground between functional and Western medicine. I have so much respect for Dr. Jones and her approach to women’s health, and I can’t wait to share her brilliance with you. In this conversation, we cover a wide range of pertinent topics including natural and hormonal methods of birth control, how gut health affects reproductive health, how to prepare for menopause, and why your cycle may be out of whack when you’re stressed (something I think many of us can relate to right now).   FIND DR.

Michael Nourse is a vedic astrologer who believes his role is to create a forum where people can align with their highest selves. With a science-based mind and a passion for understanding, Michael first began studying astrology as a hobby. But once he became acquainted with his own astrological grid, it was clear that it was his destiny. I had my first reading with Michael in late 2018, and what he told me has shaped the course of my life. At the time, I was using my social media to speak hard truths about vaccines and monsanto. This came with a lot of backlash, which is something Michael picked up on immediately when he looked at my chart. He  advised me to protect my energy and speak with diplomacy, which has since allowed me to discover new ways to use my voice that are more in alignment with who I am.   CONNECT WITH MICHAEL NOURSE Michael’s email: Want more Nateurious?
