We are glad to have you back, everyone! I am so happy to present this podcast episode. After a brief hiatus it feels amazing to finally share this information with everyone. As I shared on the podcast: We both travelled the United States and have been busy working so it took some time to get these up.
Danae Fentie, my friend, has been an inspiration to me. She is very knowledgeable about making healthy travel decisions. I met Danae in high school. I was the bright, tall, intelligent and smiling girl that I met in high school. As she became a well-respected holistic nutritionist, we kept in touch. This podcast focuses on how to keep your health in the midst of travel… and once you’re home!
I could go on and on about the podcast’s many nuanced aspects, but let me be clear, you will love this podcast. Danae is a great source of wisdom. She suggests that all inclusive resorts be approached as an opportunity to purchase good food that might not be available in our home. Learning how to keep our non-negotiable standards for health in mind when trying new foods is a key part of enjoying them. Danae has a great idea: use your vacation to get started on new eating habits. The best way to experience new foods is on vacation. We may not be able or willing to look at our daily habits at home. However, the diverse foods and cooking styles seen on our trip might help us make better choices at home.
Also, we discussed staying fit and active when on vacation. Danae mentioned her travel habits. Danae has a yoga strap and resistance band to exercise anywhere she goes, including in the hotel room. Danae also travels with strong balls to massage the muscles and prevent aches and pains. This helps her be ready for any activity. This is a great idea since these items can be carried easily. We all know what it is like to suffer from a sore neck while sitting in cramped aircraft seats for long flights. These small things can make you more prepared for the adventures that lie ahead.
Danae is a huge fan of water bottles and it was a must-have item in her travel bags. Danae will carry a water bottle with a filter inside so that even if water quality is not good, her body can stay healthy. I couldn’t agree further. Jacquie has a lot of fun talking about OCD, and Jacquie is more likely to drink tapwater. I tend towards being a bit more cautious. Danae made the point that nobody knows how much filtration there is in other countries. It’s better to be safe than sorry, in my opinion.
Danae also spoke out about essential oils, which can be beneficial for our health. These are something that I am not familiar with, so you’ll have to do some more research. These results are really intriguing. You can read more here about Thieves oils. Danae described oil of olivegeno as a powerful anti-parasitic. Danae is an expert on these topics and you can learn more from Danae via the links.
Danae discussed her desire for travel in North America and South America. She also wanted to see Peru because of the cultural aspects that relate to health, well-being, and the historic sites. I’m eager to hear about her adventures.
