One of the most powerful ways you can love yourself is taking care of the skin you’re in! We’re definitely “keepin’ it real” as we get “the tea” on basic, yet life-changing modifications you can make today to supercharge your health and add more pep to your step. If you’re looking for effective, actionable, no-cost strategies to change your health within a week, you are NOT going to want to miss this episode. Have your pen and paper ready so you can make note of the many health tips The Good Doctor shared with us!




(Dr. LaJoyce on bringing yourself to perfect health for free.)


We’re closing out the month of love with one of our favorite topics–health and wellness! We believe that in the absence of vibrant health, we are not able to live life to its fullest. And that doesn’t leave much to give anyone else either!

With that in mind, and since we realize many budgets are stressed as a result of the pandemic, we asked “The Good Doctor”, Dr. LaJoyce Brookshire to join us for “the tea” on supercharging your health on a shoestring budget.

And. She. Served. Up. Some. Gems.

There’s a quote attributed to motivational speaker Jim Rohn. “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” We take that sentiment to heart and choose those we hold closest with care. Dr. LaJoyce, is one of those people in our lives. She’s family. She even eulogized our mom/grandmother.

Fun Fact. (Nia’s terminology for when she’s going to digress from the topic at hand and share a random, yet tangentially relevant piece of information.) We are blessed to have Dr. LaJoyce as our tea guest {or Te-Te LaJoyce as she is affectionately called by Nia.) The Good Doctor & Deb are sister-friends who raised their girls together and share among other interests, a love of all things health-related. So, this conversation is as real as it gets. (Yes. we talk about “pee and poop” ALL of the time. Doesn’t everyone?  lol)

Welcome to our “transparent” tea party. We chat about everything from the importance of poop and exercise to your Circadian clock and Covid-19!



  •        The benefits of drinking a glass of water every hour.
  •        Warning signs of dehydration.
  •        What water intake has to do with your bathroom habits and how many times you should poop daily.
  •        What bodily elimination has to do with health, and why you shouldn’t hold your pee and poop.
  •        About your Circadian clock and why you should care.
  •        The perfect bedtime for optimal health.
  •        Some Covid-time exercise ideas.
  •        Effective protective COVID-19 strategies for the times you’re in public.
  •        About natural products that boost your immunity and safeguard your health.
  •        What you can do to reduce the severity and length of the virus.
  •        And, so much more.


Most of the actionable ideas on today’s show can be implemented immediately and for free. For those that choose to take advantage of some of the other suggestions and ideas shared, we’ve added the links below. This tea-talk is brimming with so many healthy tips that you just may want to listen twice!
