This special episode comes from Puerto Rico Mastermind, where Alli met amazing womenpreneurs whose businesses have a positive impact on the world. If you want to start a podcast and you need the next level of inspiration, coming to this event is one of the most impactful thing you can do.
Gena: Holistic Dentistry
Mercury fillings are implicated in the development of all sorts of diseases, like diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Women exposed to them have a higher risk of having a child with ADHD and neurological issues. Dr. Gena Schultheis used to be a traditional dentist, prescribing mercury fillings. Now, she takes them out and helps people back to health through detoxing, a healthy diet and holistic dentistry.
How can you detox from mercury? You have to go beyond diet, because mercury embeds itself in organs and is hard to get rid of. Chelation, saunas, Epsom salts, detoxifying supplements, chlorella and cilantro are all good options - the best thing is to work with a practitioner who will give you a personalized protocol. To find a holistic dentist, check out the Holistic Dental Association, or the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.
Why Gena loves Puerto Rico Mastermind
Learning from one another, working together to turn the world into a collaborative supportive place.
Sue: Co-creation as a key to success
Sue Dyer is president of OrgMetrics LLC. When she started working in construction, there was no spirit of collaboration - at her first meeting there was a fist fight in the bathroom! But for the last 40 years, Sue has been changing the culture of construction from combative to collaborative. Because let’s face it, we can achieve much more when we work together. In fact, you can be 40% more successful when you collaborate.
Why Sue loves Puerto Rico Mastermind
Co-creation is what you need to up-level every aspect of your life. That’s why masterminds work. When you collaborate and co-create, you’re accessing a collective wisdom that you don’t connect with on your own.
Dorothy - Your success helps the world
Dorothy Illson helps her clients bust through limiting beliefs about money, increase their income, and maximize their impact. Many of us feel shame about wanting to be successful and make money. But there shouldn’t be shame in that - the more abundance you create in your life, the more leverage you have to make an impact on the world.
The desire to make money and to make a positive difference are not opposing ambitions. You need one to achieve the other. If you’re miserable and struggling financially, you don’t have the emotional space or time to go out and make an impact in the world.
Dorothy promotes for-purpose businesses, where giving back is built into the business model. This is something consumers are already beginning to demand - they want to buy from a brand that makes the world a better place.
We love her podcast Do Well and Do Good.
Dorothy’s Take Away from the Puerto Rico Mastermind
Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable and authentic. That’s the most powerful thing you can do.
Bonus Travel Tip
Alli’s must-have when traveling is Organify green juice powder. This was a life-saver in Puerto Rico. When you travel, you don’t know where the next juice bar will be. Or if there’s a Whole Foods. Or if there will even BE any healthy options. But with jet lag, travel stress, and lack of sleep, you need to give your body as many nutrients as possible to stay well and make the most of your time. Organifi is a detoxifying blend herbs and vegetables like chlorella, moringa, spirulina, mint, beets, matcha, wheatgrass, ashwagandha, turmeric, coconut water and more. Perfect for jumpstarting your energy… and kicking those wine hangovers to the curb. Food Heals Nation listeners get 20% off their first order with coupon code foodheals.
