Sweta Vikram: Practicing Self-Care with Ayurveda
This week Tee welcomes Sweta Vikram for a wonderful conversation about Ayurvedic self-care practices and her journey into embracing an Ayurvedic lifestyle. Sweta is an international speaker, best-selling author, and Doctor of Ayurveda with a postgraduate degree in Sports Nutrition. Sweta’s journey began after consistently questioning the uniformity of dietary recommendations across diverse backgrounds. Before embracing Ayurveda, Sweta found herself on the cancer watchlist, struggling for breath in the emergency room, and had to put her life on hold for six months to heal. Despite growing up in a Hindi household where Ayurveda was an unknowingly integral part of daily life, influencing food choices, seasonal eating habits, and the therapeutic use of spices, Sweta's immersion into the study and practice of Ayurveda was catalyzed by this personal health crisis and the heartbreaking loss of her mother nearly a decade ago. Her story is documented in Sweta’s new book, The Loss That Binds Us, a heartfelt guide through grief filled with profound wisdom and a compassionate touch. In this chat, Tee and Sweta discuss her journey from rebelling against childhood teachings to rediscovering Ayurveda as a holistic way of life that addresses nutrition, mental well-being, and productivity. She emphasizes the importance of listening to one's body, practicing mindfulness, and incorporating Ayurvedic principles like eating seasonally and managing stress through natural means rather than quick pharmaceutical solutions. Sweta suggests simple, practical steps for integrating Ayurveda into daily life, such as checking in with oneself every morning, engaging in regular movement, and starting the day with warm water. The conversation also touches on the significance of detoxification, both physically and mentally, by avoiding processed foods and maintaining a disciplined lifestyle in harmony with nature's rhythms.

Stacy Malesiewski: Why Indoor Air Is So Important to Our Health
To celebrate our 200th episode Tee is so excited to welcome Stacy Malesiewski from Austin Air Systems for a wonderful conversation about the importance of purifying your indoor air and how Austin Air Purifiers stand apart from other low-quality “air purifiers” on the market. Mold, VOCs, dust, wildfire smoke, and other allergens can all compromise air quality and your health. EPA studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be two to five times — and occasionally more than 100 times — higher than outdoor levels. These levels of indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because most people spend about 90 percent of their time indoors. The good news is that Austin Air is here to help, and no one knows more about the health benefits, build quality, and long-term value of an Austin Air purifier than Stacy! A certified health and wellness coach, Stacy focuses on the environmental impacts of toxins and airborne pollutants. A wife, mother of four daughters, and published author she is incredibly passionate about all things air quality! Stacy is also the marketing director for Austin Air Systems. Austin Air remains the original maker of high-end air filtration systems. Sold in more than 100 countries, they maintain the largest air cleaner manufacturing facility in the world, at 480,000 square feet. The company is proud to assemble everything by hand in-house in Buffalo, New York. In this conversation, Stacy and Tee discuss the numerous reasons why the indoor air quality of so many homes, office spaces, and schools is compromised and how Austin Air can help! Stacy breaks down the numerous advantages that Austin Air’s products have over the competition while also informing listeners about simple steps that they can take to improve the air quality in their day-to-day lives. Tee is so honored to have Stacy here to celebrate this milestone in the show’s history and is proud to partner with Austin Air Systems in their mission to improve indoor air quality and overall quality of life for people all over the world! ___________________________________ Exclusive Discount: The Green Living Gurus and Green Living with Tee offer 20% off all models of Austin Air Purifiers and filters.

Liz Harriman: How Flame Retardants Can Affect Your Health
This week, Tee is excited to welcome Liz Harriman for a discussion of the dangers of flame retardants to you and your family's health. Since the 1970s, flame-retardant chemicals have been added to many types of products, from furnishings to mattresses, carpets, electronics, and household appliances. We are exposed to toxic flame retardants through inhalation of dust particles containing these chemicals, whether it’s in consumer products, textiles, or furniture that contain flame retardants. The good news is that alternatives to these chemicals have begun to be developed and many companies are beginning to remove these chemicals from their products! Liz, alongside her colleagues at TURI, is at the forefront of this fight for change. As Deputy Director of the Toxics Use Reduction Institute at UMass Lowell, Liz is responsible for managing the operations and technical functions of the Institute, as well as working with other TURA agencies to set direction for the program. In her more than 20 years of working at the Institute, she has provided technical research and support services to Massachusetts companies with the goal of identifying safer alternatives to toxic chemicals used in manufacturing and products. Her recent technical work includes prioritization and hazard evaluation of chemicals, chemical alternatives assessment, and flame retardants. Ms. Harriman is a registered Professional Engineer and holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Cornell University in Civil Engineering, as well as a Master's degree in Hazardous Materials Management from Tufts University. In this conversation, Tee and Liz discuss her work while addressing the many ways that the advocacy for change in this area has been making a difference in the lives of children and families worldwide. __________________________________ Connect with Liz and TUTI:  Website Facebook LinkedIn X ___________________________________ Follow Therese "Tee" Forton-Barnes and The Green Living Gurus: Tee’s Organics - Therese’s Healthy Products for You and Your Home:  The Green Living Gurus Website  Instagram Youtube Facebook Healthy Living Group on Facebook Tip the podcaster!

Amayra Morales: Clean Beauty Using the Ancient Wisdom of Ayurveda
This week Tee is excited to bring you a conversation she had with Amayra Morales about the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and the beauty of natural skin care. In her “past life”, Amayra was busy climbing the corporate ladder until she hit her lowest health point. After burning herself out Amayra ended up in the hospital desperately unaware of the cause of her ailments. After she was released Amayra went from specialist to specialist to try to find answers to the long list of symptoms she was experiencing following her burnout. With each specialist appointment, Amayra became increasingly disempowered, feeling shut out and not listened to.   Amayra started to question every aspect of her life and realized that her time in the corporate world was over. She packed her bags and bought a one-way ticket to India to fulfill her dream of becoming a yoga teacher. During her time in India, she became very sick and through a series of fortunate events, ended up at an Ayurvedic clinic. For Amayra, this was the beginning of the end because, through the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, she was able to connect the dots of her symptoms and find good health again. Now after a full recovery along with years of studying the principles of Ayurveda, Amayra understands that her Dharma (soul’s mission) is to help women holistically optimize their health so they can glow from the inside out. In this episode, she shares some of the wisdom and insights that she has discovered along her journey while sharing tips on how to both listen to and evaluate your body and skin for signs of larger health issues. Tee and Amayra explore how the root causes of so many illnesses lie in our toxic burden and explore ways to cleanse ourselves from that load.
