What are "essentials" when it comes to health? My belief is that eating your veggies, moving your body, hydrating and sleeping well make up the framework for a healthy life. Is there more to health? Absolutely. But these "add-ons" as I like to call them look so different on everyone.

Determining which products and supplements to invest in can be overwhelming. So I've decided to expand some of the conversations on the podcast to include interesting and innovative products that either I've found helpful or I'd like to learn more about.


You’ll hear us chat about:

-What prompted Sarah to become interested in bees and propolis?
-How she became a Beekeeper's apprentice
-What is propolis and how can it benefit your body?
-What historical figures used propolis
-How Europeans treat illnesses differently with natural products
-Why are bees so important?

-How is Beekeeper's Naturals different from other producers?

-What's threatening bees and what kind of impact will it have on the environment?
-What it means to be a company with a cause and how they've incorporated bee education and bee research
-Is there a difference between conventional honey and raw honey?
-What other products Beekeeper's Natural sells
-The health habit Carly can't live without
-What Carly would tell her 20-year old self
-What Carly hopes her older self tells her
-Who Carly looks up to in business
