Today’s guest, Kimberly Johnson, is a sexological bodyworker, somatic experiencing practitioner, yoga teacher, postpartum advocate, and single mom.

Living Less Disposably with Cloth Diapering from Esembly
Did you know 37 BILLION diapers are thrown away each year? It’s a number that feels too big to compute. Today, we welcome Liz Turriginao, mama and co-founder of Diaperkind and Esembly, to help us parent more sustainably. Although Mother Nature seems like the obvious reason for switching to Esembly (see previous gigantic statistic), it’s not the only reason. As Liz explains in this episode, their bespoke system and innovative design is made of natural organic materials for your baby, saves you time (big win), and also reduces the chance of diaper blowouts.

Environmental Health Is Human Health
Dr. Aly Cohen is a board certified rheumatologist and joins us on the podcast to discuss the correlation between environmental and human health. Aly began doing her own investigations about the link between toxins and disease. Her findings on the impact of chemicals on humans, animals, and the earth both shocked and inspired her. She has since dedicated a huge portion of her professional life to helping people adopt practical solutions that can reduce toxin exposure. Aly also shares her thoughts on water (including reverse osmosis), radiation, 5G, and the issues with BPA and manufacturing legislation.
