It is a common practice to detox at least four times per year, once with every change of season. Doing this cleanses our bodies and helps to remove any toxins that exist from stress, lifestyle choices, and even environmental factors. It is no secret that our taste changes and the foods we eat change with [...]

So many of them. Here. There. Everywhere. We live in a world with other people. There are lots of us! And we're not all the same -- thank goodness. Some of us are close to each other. Some of us have never met. Some of us interact only in virtual spaces, and others move through [...]
