Welcome to this episode of The Tonic, terrestrially broadcast on January 1 and 2, 2022 on AM740 and FM 96.7 in Toronto. Topics covered on the show track the lifestyle articles and themes published in Tonic Magazine. This week we discuss best practices for cleansing, with Joel Thuna, sound therapy with Rhea Mehta, a different kind of resolution with Carlyle Jansen and why the best parties end up in the kitchen with Carolyn Tanner-Cohen

We specifically discuss:

The Best Cleansing Practices

  • What is a cleanse and why should we cleanse?
  • First step: reduce toxins coming in
  • Consult with a medical provider first
  • Cleansing for a week
  • Up the antioxidants
  • Detoxifying your skin: castile soap
  • Your lungs – skip the scents
  • Turmeric and green tea
  • Your liver and kidneys: certified organic milk thistle
  • Post-cleanse protocol
  • Building a foundation: Vitamin D3 and K2 drops, Probiotics, Fiber and liquid chlorophyll
  • Vitamin K2 for your skin

 Sound Therapy

  • Soul Ceremony
  • Mantra medicine
  • How do you access mantras in a modern way?
  • How does sound healing contribute to better health?

A Different Kind of Resolution

  • What we “should’ do vs. what is my “yes”
  • Getting in touch with feelings and desires
  • Unproductive patterns – giving in and going along to please a partner
  • How do we shift the experience?
  • What do you want to feel (sexually)?
  • Reflecting on great times
  • What are the challenges of this process?
  • Empathy, but honesty
  • Setting boundaries
  • Honesty, but generous and gentle
  • Don’t focus on the end result

Why Do the Best Parties End Up In The Kitchen?

  • Why does the party end up in the kitchen?
  • Organizing your kitchen
  • Keep kitchen counters uncluttered
  • Where do you store the appliances?
  • Move the bar into the kitchen
  • Snacking board – remember to pre-cut the cheese
  • Recipe formation – do ahead dishes
