Robyn Openshaw is an incredible human being and dear friend of mine, as you all probably remember from our previous podcast interview. I met Robyn a few years ago at a biological medicine clinic in Switzerland and we really hit it off. She’s amazing since she is not only a dedicated single mom of four kids (who are all now flying the coop), she’s also managed to travel to a huge number of clinics across the globe, interviewing the world’s top experts and inspecting clinics that deal with biological medicine and alternative therapies.
Because of her intense personal research and firsthand knowledge, Robyn is now considered one of the top experts in the world herself on all kinds of health topics. She’s lectured in over 450 cities in the last six years after launching her popular site, GreenSmoothieGirl.com, and has authored fifteen books including the bestsellers The Green Smoothies Diet and 12 Steps to Whole Food. Her latest book is called Vibe.
Not to mention (but I will) that Robyn is a former psychotherapist and university professor to boot. Her advice is definitely worth taking, so don’t miss this or our previous podcast episode!

This episode is brought to you by Branch Basics. They are one of my favorite companies because they are tackling two major problems with one simple solution. We’ve all heard about the problems with single use plastic and how they are polluting the environment, how overuse of plastics is bad for us as humans. And if you’ve read my blog, you’re also well aware of the potential pitfalls of harsh household cleaners, especially if you have kids in the house. Branch Basics helps on both of these fronts. They have the world’s safest non-toxic cleaning concentrate that is plant-based and biodegradable so it’s safe for the environment, as well as non-GMO and not tested on animals. Since it is a concentrate, a single bottle lasts a really long time which drastically cuts down on extra plastic bottles that you would get if you bought cleaners already pre-made. It’s gentle enough to be used on skin, even on babies, but strong enough to clean floors or greasy messes and even treat paint stains. And I use it to make an all-purpose cleaner to treat stains in the laundry and even use it as laundry soap. Their bottles are all reusable or you can do what I do and mix everything in reusable glass bottles instead. And when I say it is good for everything, I mean it! I carry a travel-size foamer pump when I travel for use as hand soap instead of using nasty soaps in bathrooms, and I use it as a face wash, shampoo, eye makeup remover, stain treatment, and so much more. I use the same concentrate at home to make practically every cleaning product in my home. You may have seen on my IG how I used their cleaning concentrate and oxygen boost to wash my white couches naturally. I use Branch Basics in some way every single day.
