And then you know, have people come and visit and create relationships with them? It'll sell itself and it Kinda just evolved into that thing that. It allows you to be more comfortable. It creates a better product, and if you do it the right way, it just kind evolves into something that you can continue to move onto if you want to or just keep it at whatever level you want. Do you keep the same bar soap? No. Not at least we take care. There's a lot there's a there's a lot more involved, but it's just providing an alternative experience for travelers, and in the Bourbon Industry at found hosting like. Different barrel clubs and stuff there's real. A lot of people know each other over the internet or whatever, but whenever you have a space where everybody can interact and as well as sleep and stay together, and it just creates a much better experience especially whenever you're you though some bourbon in the mix absolutely in before we kind of frame the discussion here before we get into it, you know. Know when you talk about the barrel clubs what we're standing in what we're sitting here right now is like one of the most perfect opportune places, because if we always talk about this to you know. We talked about the Guys Department Community Roundtable we get together. We call each other Internet friends right in. It's usually one of our houses, but our houses. Art. Nice big spaces like this, and so when you can fit I, mean Gosh Wha-. What do you think the most people that you fit in here from Bourbon? Club just like people hanging out and gathering and stuff like that. You could easily do forty see. It's amazing and. You can't even see it on camera, but if you were here like there's a whole second floor, the whole nother sitting area. It's truly immaculate, so we'll. We'll talk about a little bit later, but how you can get in contact with their to the book it. Is I mean and the artwork in here the Macula you've got if you're a fan of birds or like nature and and horse racing, there's all these vintage paintings and drawings or go porcelain decanters here. The Wood floors is partially originally from the House the beams here. This is just a beautiful restored. saved old home are actually used to be a bookstore. I used to come in here in and buy books and take us through the process of kind of what you did because I know. We have a lot of like geeks who liked to redo their basements or they like to. Fix Up their bars I. Bet you there's a tip or two. You might have because you're. You're an engineer smart guy. Thanks, appreciate it I try. But, basically like you said it was an old bookstore it was built. I think around nineteen, hundred, nineteen, fifteen around then, and we tried to restore much as we could, but you know there's a lot of things that to bring it up to. Where would be a a building? Wiring. To put you in perspective. This house actually had gas pipes ran through the house. Because that was the lighting system, the original lighting system there wasn't even electric. Basically natural gas. If the IT's like dangerous. Yeah, it was, there was a lot of work involved in it, but it. Basically he had decided to move on from own bookstore he retired, and so we just felt as a great opportunity here on Bardstown road where you can be around all the great restaurants and I'm not trying to build like fifty storey hotel. I just want something that feels authentic that you can walk to go. The restaurants have a drink at the bar and be back in five minutes. Minutes so it's it's A. It's a great opportunity that we thought it would be a great location. I mean you are in the thick of it here. That's that's for sure. Great location really is all right, so let's go ahead. Let's start framing really what this this. I really the topic of today so I'm to kind of take this idea, and maybe like what we like when we say we go to Vegas. Where like okay like three days in Vegas? That's the perfect amount five days maybe too many two days. Maybe not enough now going to the Bourbon trail and people are coming in from out of town. What are you all really think is like the the prime number. What should people really be looking at you know? Is it like a two day or three? Day is four days too much like when you're coming in the Bourbon trail. What's what's a good number that people should be targeting? The question. Is like how good is your liver? and. What kind of company are you around? That's all excellent points when it comes to family. What is it like three family and fish after three days? It gets a little a little smelly so. Yeah My experience has been If you're a corporate person, it's attack on to something that.

Very Awesome Awesome Little House for rain here, not even little house it's pretty. Out here though Ryan. He's really missing out on this one. Yeah I. It's a shame because he such notch poor. This is a story of. A building something from nothing quite literally and I. I wish he was here. I know I know well. You know we'll. We'll have plenty of good lively discussion without him. And you know really the focus on the topic of today is to really talk about the ultimate Bourbon trail. Experience like were. Should you stay? Where should you eat? What places can you go if you're GonNa Start Planning this like? How do you figure out like what area the city you hit? Can you hit them on the same exact time and you know we've got a our guest today. He's A. He's a AIRBNB super. Ho, so that means that he's had and while. While let them. Do you know kind of sense reduction? We were kind of talking about before, but he hosts tons and tons of Bourbon groups in here, and he kinda really found a niche market near, so people ask them all the time of you know. Where where should we go? And where should we tour and all that sort of stuff so I think we're going to? We're going probably be enlightened a little bit ourselves and I think what's important to note here that this is not this guest Erik has not somebody who is. does looking for your dollar now. He someone who's actually passionate about this. He's a member of the community. I, mean we. He supports people and Patriot who are in the community, support, department, enthusiast, or toss fact we walk in. And what's he doing? He's like. Hey, you WANNA. You WanNa try this This little bit of smoke wagon is the the infamous bourbon enthusiast barrel. Yeah, I honestly I didn't think I was ever going to get the taste this so I was very excited. It's it is a treat and you know. It's amazing that the I I always I always find it amazing. There's a ton of 'EM GP is out there and now smoke wagons, just blowing up all over the place. So you know hats off to them that they they kind of had some foresight to buy a lot of good age product at the same time I always I always go back packaging. That is cool bottle. That's very unique. It's got. It's got some. some vines and everything, and it's like in the glass, so that's That's not a cheap investment in the glass right there. The whiskey matches the bottle win. Win there you, so this was. This is first thing. He offered me when I walked in. And so you know it's good day. Like our guests. Gave gave us good whiskey. So. Let's go ahead. Introduce them today. On the show. We have Eric. Carrico Eric is a bourbon airbnb super host, so welcome to the show man. Thank you Kenny I appreciate. You have me on the show and appreciate the kind words I i. want you know that? That bottles called Karma so maybe this is all just Karma that we're all here. I don't know but Yeah, it's been. It's been a good bottle so far and. Appreciate everybody in the Patriot community and I enjoy hosting people for Arby's and I guess that's kind of where I want to start to is like. How did you get involved with figuring out like AIRBNB, and then? How did that pivot to the point where you said like? Oh, my gosh like there's a lot of people that here for Urban. well, you know back in two thousand thirteen. We are in transition between a few homes and our two homes, and we put a lot of work in money into both of them and so we started hosting. Guests coming in, and then we realized that about half of them were here for AIRBNB. or were booking through AIRBNB or here for short term rentals to go visit. Bourbon distilleries in Bourbon places, so you know interacting with them developing relationships. We just kind of kicked it off as you know hey. Look more into this, and so I think today we've hosted about four thousand guests allow four thousand. Yes, quite a number. Yeah, yeah, so probably between one and two thousand of them. Were just you know here for Bourbon travel experiences and IT ties into a lot of if you look at Louisville in general I think they said that a economic impact of within Kentucky's about four billion dollars. Yeah I think that's probably we don't even think of like the the whole we I mean. We think of hotels. We think of stuff like that, but I mean like not to that amount of scale usually when we get stuff that's coming from the Katie A. it like. Hey, we had this many visitors. You know it did this this many distilleries, but we don't actually see the impact that it's happening. Economically around the city with restaurants and hotels and everything like that, too sometimes. Some pretty fortunate I'm sitting. I'm on the the mayor's committee about of course you are. On this committee of like Basically Birmingham two point Oh, and you know I, I've seen what Bourbon has done Bourbon and beyond. And, like when there's something here that Bourbon related the hotel out, and that's tax dollars to that comes to stuff. I am a longtime fan of of hotels. We were talking earlier. You were a Marriott guy. You love those Mary up points. Yeah, so what talked to me about like the actual like the differences between like AIRBNB and hotels? Because Hey, get this key I've never actually staying in their being. Before never have? My jaw dropped a little bit. In fact! The people may get a kick out of this, but I tried it one time. And the guy refused to let me stay place. Profile. Ascott. Can't be this guy. This guy from the nineteenth. Kinda profile pictures. Yeah, so I was in the construction industry and you know on the road probably eight. Eighty percent of the time and pretty soon hotel rooms all become the same, and so when you..

"Do you see this is like good or bad for the whiskey world. I think it's different. I mean the people who know what they're doing and the people who who look at look at you guys for reviews they're they're gonNa be picking the ones that are worth buying and I can't imagine that a lot of these are are worth buying so I don't see it as affecting me too terribly much anybody else. You guys are awful quiet on this. I feel like I. I gave my opinion of I don't think it's bad to bring more people into the whiskey world like a re pushing it to jump the shark even further. I don't think so because there is going to be so much whiskey in you know. Drake released his own whiskey a few years ago. And you know I. It's just something that constantly happens if there's money to be made you're going to have these people who say hey. Let's let's throw a big name on a brand you be the face of it will handle the back in so i. I don't think it is a bad thing. You know if that means that there's more bottles on the shelf when people walk into a total wine and maybe they see a name. They recognize that they buy it. Good for them but I don't I don't know I don't I? Don't see it as something like an interferes with our lane of the Bourbon nerd world. Any of it is going to be good is what I'm more. E How many how many bottles of actual bad bourbon have you had from major stiller's? I'm talking about like stuff. You can't drink are major dealer hill doing rock and roll band releases though. I mean I think they're sourcing somewhere so I don't think any won't trace. I mean no. I don't think it's any race but I can tell you. Maybe it will. Maybe some G. P. Maybe and usual suspects. I mean I mean in the Terry Bradshaw Bourbon. It's all from. Oc Tyler. And I believe it's Gosh it might be three or just a four year old or something like that. So that might be one of the first brands that are GONNA be coming out of Oc TYLER IN BRIAN AC or they're making some faces but you gotta you gotta you gotTa understand about like Tyler. Sometimes it gets a bad rap because the only people pin OC Tyler Pure like that's what that's what people headwind exactly our big mistake on their part. Because they're they're Jego. Mccall is actually a really good master distiller there and he makes announcing product but they have that black on them because of this thing. Because it's like I mean it's a everybody thinks it's a gimmick and nobody's going to fare so they're actually trying to rebrand and come out new brands. That aren't Ozzy Tyler. So they can get away from that but back to the celebrity thing. I think it's good the more you get it to. If it's good if you want to grow if you don't want to grow then it's bed the more you can get into common people. It's just the natural progression of any product. The more appealing it is to the mass audience. Celebrities do that whether you like it or not. That's just that's interested in a little bit of urban history Bourbon Law than Soviet. I've got a wheel with victory that they could check out. I'm GONNA get into. I'm right there with you guys. I think the more people drinking bourbon right whether that's good or bad for people trying to find bottles. It is what it is but the more people are the more money that producers are willing to invest now right big or small and more so the more legs. Bourbon has to go a long time before there is a you know. It's a boom and bust cycle so before there's a bust and honestly if they can keep this up it's just ingrained in the American culture right and then you'll see bourbon out there. Let's be real. You WanNa see a bus like flavored. Vodka what fifteen years ago when everyone's drinking flavored Twenty years ago. Let me tell you. How many of you are walking through the store? Like I think I'll pick up some bubblegum vodka. Drink tonight just doesn't happen right drink bourbon now. In in other people see a drink for ten fifteen years of a hold on long enough. That's cultural that's generational right and then we actually have bourbon taking off and just becoming more mainstream Which is fantastic. This is this is a good discussion because I think you know as we it. There's a lot of things that are happening in the comments as well people are saying you know like basically there Who Was it? That was Hank Williams junior are booker was an Hank Williams. Junior music video Would dream how'd say that there's I forget I saw something else but basically saying Whoever was was was pushing dickel a lot back in the day as well and so I think celebrities do have a role in this right as as an advertising mechanism and stuff like that getting into it. I mean in Mealy Kunas has been doing it for a while. And that's but that's just the advertising side of it. I mean we're talking about actually having a hand at creating something that is a product which is completely different in my opinion right Where I think they probably had a lot more skin in the game that got their dollars. Invested into it in so it becomes something. That is a cornerstone for that. They've gotta make it gotTa make successful in. So if if they don't then it could end up being like trump vodka right. Who knows right? We're just is no longer on the shelves or something like that but love chocolate. You're sitting on it. I think it's worth something nowadays and speaking of worth something. Now I guess that kind of leads into A. It's it's it's always a topic we love and we hate it second at the at the time but that is the secondary market nice transition. I know try to find ways to make it fun and interesting without like myself as like. Oh well the people that always talk about the secondary market but it truly is like one of those things that were now gosh five months almost six months since the since the kind of sound yeah it really has still exist dog getting well. That's what we're going to go into a little bit by. July was when the group I was running went down so it's been over six months so Maryvale I was. I was thinking it was like some time like September timeframe or something like that but before then than than we are definitely over six months so I guess logging talk about the current state of the secondary Me Personally I made A. I made a prediction on our last of Twenty Nineteen episode saying that Twenty Twenty was going to be the kind of rebirth of it where a new facebook groups going to come up. This whole thing was just going to fly over like Blah Blah Blah Blah. Who Cares I so far have been completely wrong? that is not come to fruition. It is continuing to group-c shutdown or there's just new rules insane like no posting dollar signs or anything like that but there has not been a a group that has started to break really come up in and make a name for itself At the same exact time bottle spot has suffered a casualty Which was something that I did not see coming which I don't know I kind of took me best surprise. I don't know about you all but right now I would say I would. I would say the current state of the market is If we're going to go like red yellow green like it's going to be in the pink area right. It's it's it's an innocent. A No Bueno state. Still it's certainly maybe not life support but close to life support right. It's nothing's really popped up. I think two things. One facebook got really good about shutting down groups. Raise a bunch pop up right after the secondary the bug shut down and they just kept smackdown other ones. I think a little bit of facebook doing better about patrolling things. I think it was a little bit more of people out there saying well. Now's my chance to report everything right. Little bit a little bit facebook. Heroes going on we'll call but I think it's a loss loss of community whether or not I mean I never bought or sold on the secondary but what I love doing was just seeing the latest trends. What people really after right? I loved seeing new. of seeing new consumers awarded case to a different permit. They just decided again to the week before but really showed what people are. After and what brands were becoming hot brands were cooling down What was coming in what people are really looking forward to. And that and that's just gone from just a pure gamesmanship just fly on the sidelines. Watching that's gone and that's a shame You know I think it's also shamed to for everyone who now BOP cases in cases of Bourbon. They started into thinking they flip it easy. Sure hopefully like drinking ed Parties torn up. You still got all those diamonds diamonds. I I don't think the market's really that much it's still there. It's just more spread out places as more rules. Let me when one market goes down. Another one comes back up it It's still exists and and you can't stop it. I mean it's going to exist as the thing and and it'll whether it's facebook or someone finds another platform or whatever it'll exist. I mean I. I wish it to Jordan's point. I wish you could kind of see it from the sidelines. But it's still exist in so I think it actually has been affected way more. I'm kind of with Kenny where it stopped and slowed down way more than I thought it. Would you know? I thought it would always exists. Didn't it does to an extent but it definitely took a big hit. You know I think just the fact that all these massive groups were shut down. I don't know if there is a group that is in the group in the six will not six figures in the five figures or or even ten thousand plus members that hasn't been shut down Probably not so Definitely takes a big hit. And now it's like you have all these you know people just selling well or twelve or bottles. That really shouldn't be sold. Nobody's doing that as much anymore. Because it's not open is not as big of market so All in all I think it was a pretty surprising change. And how it all went down so I still think it's a a detriment to the bourbon world because whether you love it or hate it. That was a big part of just watching what was getting sold. What were the trends? You know older bottles and the is just kind of fun to see that be sold. You know I'm Kinda with Jordan. Didn't participate but I like seeing that. What was going on so disappointing. I go ahead Kerry. Sorry no no go ahead. You're okay we need Ryan. I know we do need more Ryan. I'm torn about the secondary. I'm Kinda relieved about it because I'm not doing like mega balls and all this crazy like gambling and stuff like entrenched. But it's also because it is a bummer. Like you used to you know that was my night like scrolling through seeing what people are buying what they're selling what they're going for. I do love the yard sale stuff. Oh my God. It cracks me up. Becky's me entertained but Yeah I think it's you know I'm indifferent about if it's detrimental bourbon. I mean it's detrimental to us but as I think bourbons just like we were talking about earlier we forget about the common consumer and they have no idea this exist still and it doesn't affect them. It's still growing Besides that but I do think some brands like really valued from the secondary mortgage buffalo trace being one of them. I'm not really sure that they would be what they were without it and I don't there's brands like old scout. There's no way they would be anything without the secondary market blonde brothers all these MVP brands nobody would have gave it to flips about them. If there wasn't a secondary market out there and so I think it.

"About our episode today I'm so excited about the topic this is something being before we say what it is this is something that helps so many people and many ways my mother included I have to say just an amazing thing and I'm excited we're talking about this knock knock knock on heaven and it has been what months now that I've wanted to do this and I've been so good and putting it off and trying to be seasonal and everything so I kind of feel like deserve a little pat on the back go hey look at me it's finally time it's time so today we are talking about something that is so near and dear to me and to you yes as I as you know as I know as As I know we know we all know that's not even a thing so I guess the best way to to approach this is just say that what we're talking about our Bubis Bubis Not Bubis not booby we are not talking about Bubis today we're talking about the lack of Bubis today yes and how we can we as a community have come together to rectify that so as a member of the Integrative Medicine Program here at Mary Washington Hospital we have we have health fairs every year and see these women that are going into treatment or coming out treatment and it was always important to me to ask them how I could help them in the one thing that I heard most often from women that had gone through treatment for breast sir was that they never felt like a woman again they never felt pretty so being who I am an avid knitter I started here in Fredericksburg. A local chapter of knitted knockers so it's Fred's knockers is who we are but I didn't thanks Fred but I think we actually have a friend who does in fact knit the aforementioned duckers that's funny you know you got to do these things but what we do is we are a group and I can't stress this strongly enough and I don't just mean our local chapter I mean nationwide and now in fact worldwide we are a one hundred percent volunteer they buy their supplies to do this but what we do is we nit prosthetic breasts for women who have undergone mastectomies to help them feel pretty yes again yes so we knit them out of cotton or acrylic it's it's a very specific yarn that we use but the reason we do too is one is for everyday wear but acrylic dries more quickly so those are for swimming so we actually make knockers for swimming and we make every day knockers they are available free free F. R. E. cannot stress that enough to anyone who wants them anyone anywhere period regardless end of story doesn't matter why you want him doesn't matter what color you want doesn't matter how many you want if you want them they are the size a through double d standard anything above a double D which I have made we do those on special order but they are all knit by volunteers women who have either gone through cancer treatment who knows someone who has gone through cancer treatment who just are crazy avid knitter like I am and they want to help it's something that we can do their quick they're easy and it's litter Lee something that we do as you know that changes someone's life absolutely I was just about to say it's life changing my mom who is currently going retreatment and working with you a lot with a lot of things at the beginning of the year had a mastectomy and I have to say we went through this process for a while thinking okay what do we what do we get her what kind of clothing do we buy and then finally when she came in here and saw you and you said why don't you try this she has been wearing it ever since and it literally makes her feel whole again pretty and that is amazing it's amazing and I can attest to that first hand by just saying that that you were right it is life changing she wears it every day it is something that she now has has orders for her friends that are going through treatment as well and it's life changing and it does something for these women that is there in such a time in their life zo to be able to provide the service it's an unbelievable service it's it's unbelievable for us to I am lucky in that I am a distribution point for them as well I'm I'm very blessed to have people come in and you know I helped them pick them or I just let them sort through we have five different nations here in the Fredericksburg area where you can pick them up for free and you can get whatever size you want you can get whatever color I have some amazing niggers they do some crazy stripes and colors and we've done football team colors we've done baseball team colors we've done them with little tattooed arts on them it's such a blessing to have these women come in that are either immediately post surgical or who have been out of treatment for some time I've had women who've come in here who've been out of treatment for years who have gone through the process of having a prosthetic made and I I certainly am not saying anything negative about that but as you can see here today this is a prosthetic that is made for everyday wear it is slimy is cold once it gets against the skin it gets warm it gets sweaty it's heavy as you can see it's a very very heavy thing to carry around it requires a special bra that not many women have difficulty getting on by themselves so they have to ask for help so it's it's embarrassing and then this is the in this is the swimming version so this one is as you can see huge yes and heavy same thing so the ones that we make are very lightweight very excited we have a separate bags actually while we're while we're doing the episode I have such amazing volunteers that drop them off here so that I can fluff them in Baghdad send him out into the community but as you can see here I have a size see and assize de so you can see them both they're very soft yes they're very lightweight their mission gene washable and dryable you can hand wash them in the sink you can pretty much do anything that you want with them some women like to put a little pebble in him to give him away but most importantly the thing that I hear from women is you don't have to have a special bra you can put them right into your everyday bra you have the comfortable and nobody knows the difference yeah I mean it's just an instant change for them so one of the things that we really need to talk about with knitted knockers I either so important is that one in every eight women will be touched in some way by breast cancer during their life yes we are supposed to as society as women we are supposed to be beautiful clothing is meant and and I'm sorry but but I'm just you know me I'm a no BS person clothing meant for women that have breast as larger breasted women I can tell you that they're certainly not meant for people like me and finding clothing that fits is a challenge yes I know that for baller breasted women it's the same thing they're just not but all clothing is cut to to curve and surrounded women's breast to make her feel beautiful and to make her feel feminine if you don't have that they're nothing fits right and we need to change that we need to change that perception we need to change that in the women that that or going through it but we also need to change in society society is not going to change anytime soon but helping these women to be able to reach out to them one knitted knock her time as it were it really is just such an amazing thing so in your community in every community across the United States there's east one place that these women can go and pick.

"We can't get it anymore. I know see big moments here on the were moving up on the intensity scale. We're moving the findings of scale so the orphan barrel at this point if you were able to find one from the underground market we'll we'll call it the secondary market which I do not buy Bourbon on the secondary market that would be illegal. Yes well not only. Would it be legal but to me if I'm if I'm lucky enough to get it then. I'm lucky enough to gotta but if you were able to buy one on the secondary market on that last one year you're looking a little over a little over three bills for that one okay so you're you're investing in this one. He almost talked me out of buying he did. It's the truth but I- overrode his decision she you like the box she did like the box and then fell in love with the regular. I get it so this one is from go ahead. Good packaging says a this. The blood oath packed number five why sticking with blood oath pack number one two and so forth. We are now up to five pause for picture. Oh by the way if you want to see any of the pictures and videos behind the scenes and everything that we take care during the podcast absolutely check that out on the facebook page check it out on Instagram as well for center of town. Are you ready for this picture. Are you sure are you ready. I'm so ready bringing the big reveal. Wow I love that bottle to see now. This blood oath comes from it comes from Lux row and what they've done here is so fabulous so stunning. I'm not saying that one through four weren't amazing. What I am saying is packed number five was eight in Caribbean rum barrel exactly now now. You're talking about this one. This one's a little different because this is a blend so this is eight year. Ri- that's blended with an eleven year weeded needed bourbon so we were talking about the different corn has to be fifty one percent right so Ri- Has More Ri- right this one has weet this eleven year weeded Bourbon and then also blended again with a thirteen year bourbon so you get an eight year ride eleven year weeded Bourbon Thirteen Year Bourbon even all blended together finished in the Caribbean. Can we see them out with the sun coming through. Can we tell those beautiful because he talking your love language now he does and this is. This is what I love about him. I'm all about it tastes good. I love it. He does the investigations ahead of time so so when I go in to get them. It's really funny and the lady at our local. ABC has come to know us and I think that that we amuse her greatly because he he will say today. You're going to pick up the new colonel e h Taylor. This is a single barrel and it's ninety six proof and it's and he comes out with all these facts as I'm standing there going to have this and then when we get home I go oh my God. What is this this is glorious and what does that taste and it tastes just like this tastes like sweet tarts or this has a really chocolate he finisher what's happening here and he's over there going. It's the Ri- it's the he's always very outback story he does and I'm in the Mommy likes right or Mommy's not liking this one for me is kinda sweet with molasses us with a wry spice and then it comes through and then it finishes with kind of like a warm heat. It's not going to be like a burn but just you'll feel that you know right down your throat your stomach that makes you feel warm molasses and spice and like all the ladies that we love our life. This one's got some great straight legs. Oh stories years again. Who doesn't it's all about the packaging if you can still find find it that one's going to set you back about a buck and a half one hundred sixty somewhere in that zone so it definitely is again. It's it's one of our I guess. I don't know that we have a high end but I guess it's definitely in the the high end zone when we do you and I guess we should we should go there so when I do. Bourbon runs when I go pick up our bourbon when it's Bourbon delivery day at the local. ABC STORE The staff at the store and my husband have an agreement. I don't need to know how much it costs unless it's over one hundred dollars because there are times on Bourbon delivery day that I walk out with one bottle. There are times that I walk out with six six depending on what's being released. Were very on top of what's being released people that we like especially coming into the market so this happened to to be the one that they said did todd tell you and I said Okay and I at the time had a few other. The things that I really liked and I looked down went. I'm going to need all these so no. I mean you know we all work hard so we enjoy ourselves work hard play hard man and and this translates over into your business here and I love that it translates into how much you care about the details of of everything you're doing and you care about how much you're putting into the work for research behind the products that you have here sure and how much you are putting into the time that you spend with each person that walks into the door. You don't rush anyone out. You don't rush anyone off. The phone and that means means the world to people. I can see it on their face. I can see that that's a ripple effect here at the center of town so it is something that is really really valuable and you have a gift for that is wonderful. That's so sweet of you. Why are you saying Nice things to me. I hate that you know don't do that sweet though but you know what it truly it truly is what it's all about and and my whole ideology in life is about family and and taking care of your family and the people people that come in here. They're my family is well. They're asking me to help them. They're asking me to help their children. They're asking me to help their family and and that's that's switch all about.

"This is very easy drinking. It's delicious. It's equally good straight straight or with a single ice cube or in a cocktail. It works really really well. It's got a nice mouth feel. It's delicious while he's talking. I'm going to go ahead and poor these. Oh Oh yes please. You're the old forester one hundred for me. It starts out with a fruity kind of start leading into like another kind of spicy but not like hot. Finished finished doesn't really burn. It's very easy to drink. Mary affordable really good every day. Drink the old forrester also just as a little fact here was started in eighteen seventy before prohibition and there's a handful of them around that are before probation but old forester is the only one that has been continuously run by the same family their fifth generation the name the Brown family and I've been in business since eighteen seventy making this juice so obviously this is This is something that has stood the test of time absolutely delicious happy juice again. It's something that we like. This would be a predinner. Hey in the mood for a cocktail or let's have a shot on a single core so cheers careers. Everybody who light fresh clean good mouth feel but an easy finish but you'll see and I know that we've had we've talked talked about rise before and you'll see that it doesn't have that Ri- sort of overwhelming grayness to it and that's why like it and the Nice thing about this. When is I always talk to you about my top ten for under fifty bucks. This one is going to retail right at about thirty dollars. So it's the kind of thing that pretty much. Anybody could buy try it out. See if it's something that you enjoy and you could you could move on from there. That was really that was good. I was concerned because it had a darker color to it but some work was only a little taste. Actually it is and that's what's Nice about it. Is that it kind of gives you that and you know we always we eat with our eyes is and our nose first before ever gets into her mouth and it gives you that beautiful sensation that there's something very rich has very rich color to it and it gives you the idea that you're gonNa have something very rich coming at you so it's it's it's. It's one that I like an an awful lot old forester forrester. I like it all right so what's up next so the next one. This one is one that anybody is. I knew you would all the bottles are hidden down here because you always enjoyed the bottles better on anybody who drinks bourbon knows about blends. Everybody knows about Blanton's Blanton's is made by the same company that makes buffalo trace they make Taylor they do not lead they do stag junior which is one of our all time favorites the price point on this one. I'm going to give you is going to Kinda. It's GonNa be a weird description because it really depends on the year that you're getting so. The Nice thing about Blanton's is that it has a really nice vanilla taste to it. it's again. It's really good in a cocktail or it's good straight but the most fun thing is that the top of every bottle title has let me put his little top back on secrecy. See this little horse. Yes so each one is different. Oh Wow so you can actually buy a a whole series not that we would know you can buy a whole series that makes the horse run through his complete Gal. Oh I love the sewage. You know it's decorative as well. Will this bottle that we're having today. each bottle of Blanton's is marked when it was when it was bottled what racket came from warehouse it came from so this when actually is from December thirteenth of two thousand eighteen it was from Warehouse H. It was from Rick Number. One then it's ninety-three proof and it is barrel number twenty eight ninety four wow each bottle is really special. We actually got one. That was was released on Todd's birthday which we hung onto. It was a an eleven twenty two which we thought that was kind of cool. We've never opened that one so just kind of a fun fact that what what big birthday will you be cracking that one open Oh. I don't know a lot of that. Load birthdays are passed already. I'm sure we'll figure something out. Another one coming up health plans for B. is a love hate thing just because everybody wants planes and you can't get it and when it hits just like I said before all the people that are like used to be able to buy it all the time yeah I mean. It's good for the price point. It's good there there. It is little more expensive than I would like off but like Susie said being from buffalo trace so the Blanton's is named after Colonel Albert B Blanton who was a Master Distiller. Ah Ah the George T stagg distillery which is now buffalo trace of buffalo traces absorbed all these brands and they make them all in this is a high rye mash. It's their mashed number two so lake. She was saying with the corn and the ride. This isn't awry it. Just it has more than fifty one percent corn in it. It just has a little more wry than your typical Bourbon for me. It's kind of citrus and sweet upfront kind of dissipates dry slightly bitter finish but would be considered staple on any bar any Thar love that and don't you think some of the process to the enjoyment part of the process is like knowing the back story with every bottle and with with the people making it. That's that makes it really. It gives it all of that detail while you're we have a bottle that I don't know when we celebrate our cheers sorry. I'll I couldn't wait. I'm sorry cheers cheers we actually have a bottle that was made by Booker's and and it is it's in a box and the box that it is in is actually made from their original prohibition era distillery. Oh so it's made from the boxes made from the floors and the cross beams of this distillery so cool and just to touch it and to think Komo of where it's been things like that to me are it is the history. It's the fact that it's only made in this country and it's something that we it should be proud of yeah instead. It's I think Bourbon until probably maybe the last ten years. Bourbon drinkers have always been sort of not. Look down upon on but you've either you're either one or the other you're either really really snooty or you're white trash like it was never accepted beverage. You know people drank rum. Some people drink vodka and whisky was okay even but Bourbon they were they had that sort of but if you look at Bourbon and the history that's behind it and and how freaking delicious I mean we have to admit you were vodka. Drinker won't have totally converted yourself well. Here's the thing my partner and I we drink a law vodka drinks. We love a good vodka cocktail. No doubt about it but you have introduced us to some really fantastic bourbons that really have given us us like opened our eyes in in this direction and I have to say kind of bring it full circle with some of the things we've talked about on the podcast before you know you're talking about being able to touch this bottle title. That's come from this time period and how awesome that is we talk about everything having energy and everything having vibration absolutely and I feel like you know you get some of that. Will you absolutely do that when you buy them. You feel it and it's just there's you know there's there's a history to it and there's a pride to it. If you you remember when we did when we did conviction yes and the idea that they are making this in a prison because it's the first legal bourbon made behind bars and the lengths that they've gone to to produce this into create it is to me. That's part of what you're drinking. You're drinking that history. It's it's not just I'm don't get me wrong. I can knock cosmo with the best of right that's awesome awesome no problem but if I'm sitting and I've seen you do it as well but I think that when you're sitting down I think that Bourbon has a very convivial as you've seen from just doing the podcast. I think that it has a very convivial atmosphere to it. It it back and you wear a cosmo is waving someone across the room and saying hello and seeing and being seen. I think that Bourbon has that let's settle in. Let's have a conversation it has that sort of feel to it and that's and that's why we we picked it for the podcast because that's what we want you to do. We want you to settle in and enjoy what we're talking about. hopefully today. You're enjoying US talking about fully. You are all right so we're number three of the four. I believe we are at number three so things are going to start Utah. Talk Lost Count by the hello. Things are going to start. You get a little more intense now okay. We're going the opposite direction. No aren't we know we're we're. We're George whizzy. We're known to say Uber Moving here. You know it's fine. Oh my gracious okay. Ah Tell me number three so number three poss for photo yes woo-hoo again. I like the bottle. This is from orphan barrel and this is their forged this as my love of my life will attest to this is definitely our for hey in the mood for something a little different so this is a fifteen year aged bourbon. This one is going to have a bit higher of a knows a bit higher of a pallet than some of the other ones that we have done. It is a Kentucky Gi Straight Bourbon. This one is no longer available so the fact that I'm no longer available ever ever in the history of time in the history of time time this is it. This is all that's left and we're we'll wait your experience at right now. I love that now. There's only about twenty five percent left. We we enjoy this one and again we enjoy we enjoy our burgers and again that goes back to what Susie was saying about like the Bourbon in the craze so we can never get this again again and I would rather drink joy and share yeah with you. Guys say and and enjoy it. I mean you could leave it. Sit On your shelf for till the time. Yeah that's right again. You know when in winning this stuff is gone. Something else will become an outright. You'll bill always something else right but this is one that we share really only with each other or with very special friends so we are including you. That's US over here. It is barrels or all special releases and they all come out with different things this one for me as kind of like a woody leathery type start to a peppery almost RI- Finish Asia. It's definitely Okie if you like that kind of thing as as would be expected sitting in an oak barrel for fifteen years that being said for me. I I find it less oaky than some of the others I find it as a nice oh kanus. It's not like that Depot Katie. It's not like a sham where it make sure jaw ache for my wine drinkers in the room it doesn't it doesn't go there but here is to the amazing. I love you guys more than you know orphan barrel people and therefore doke cheers everybody Julius wow it's like silk. I really like that. It's like Silky Silky happiness. That just says hi. I WANNA be your friend. It's absolutely stunning this with a single ice cube or even I wouldn't even go so far as a single single ice cube this would be like an ice chip it blooms and it has almost this this really sweet aroma that comes out of it. That kind of belies what you're getting you kind of think. You're getting something that's a lot sweeter or a lot more dense than it is but it has such an amazing mouth fields got such great legs to it but this is definitely one of our favorites and we are now down to twenty percent twenty percent one percent of the bottle twenty percent. Yes very true. Okay and my partner. Megan is one of our background producers as well and she's here with us having some of this. That's what did you give that thumbs up thumbs down what did you that was fantastic. The first one today that you liked because Megan definitely tries bourbon but doesn't necessarily she does and she's GonNa tell us so. That's the one she liked it. I enjoyed that the best of the last one that was my favorite too who I was gonna say because so far. It's got that it's the perfect balance of everything. Henry finished talking about and that suite on the front so it's got the sweet not salty sweet peppery thing but it's like savory. We'd like to visit Sabry. Okay sweet savory thing. It's like fifty fifty fifty but neither one overpowers the other they just. It's a perfect marriage right. I mean it really is a glorious glorious bottle of Bourbon and it makes me very sad that it will soon be gone however I'm very very grateful that we were able to experience it together. Yes yes and we're so happy to share with us the last time you can ever have that that's very sweet. Thank you so the next one that we're having is also what I'm going to call a one off off so once this is gone. We can't get it anymore. I know see big moments here on the were moving up on the intensity scale. We're moving the findings of scale so.

"Did you know that if not for Bourbon Bourbon we wouldn't have straws really it is an absolute fact. It is an absolute fact. Mr Marvin Stone who enjoyed wait drinking his old fashioned and straws used to be made from ryegrass will as you know. Bourbon is not Ri- and he found that it left a distasteful flavor to his old fashioned and it got mushy okay and so one day he took a piece of paper and he rolled it up into a tube Google and Voila the straw. The Straw was formed so we can attribute all of the happiness in the world to Bourbon for straws whow it's pretty impressive. That was an interesting line. I liked it to get there right there. In fact it is all about the fun fact number two fun fact. Did you know that there is no other country in the world that makes Bourbon. Really Bourbon is a distinctly American beverage beverage of choice of the woollen family in fact on May Fourth Nineteen one thousand nine hundred sixty four the May fourth part. You may remember because we infect celebrate Bourbon Day. Our Congress actually enacted acted a what do we call it. Legislation Regulation rule an edict declaration Jecklin ration- of Bourbon that says that Bourbon is a distinctive product of the United States other whisky and whiskey tight beverages like bourbons can be made in other countries but they cannot ever be called a bourbon wow. It's a very patriotic drink drink. It is a we have made everyone happy and were patriotic. If you drink your bourbon with Straw you've covered pretty much all the offer all all the Mason. That's so true. Did you know I'm ready that your survival kit for being in the woods. I should always contain bourbon because as you know you'll need a drink. If you're lost I mean obviously that and then I'm sure you have medical reasons. Insight Bourbon is a medicine. We talked about that when we talked about stocking your bar and why we use Bourbon Bourbon can be used in the field to make a tincture so if you're stung by a bee bitten by a spider rider I probably wouldn't use it for a snake bite but hey I mean may number but if you know the herbs that go along with it you can make your own picture right there in the field with the Bourbon that you have very quickly and very effectively bourbon is also really good for helping people sleep so if you're in an emergency situation. I'm thinking you're probably not going to be sleeping very very well a little bit of Burbano help. It's a wonderful disinfectant for cuts scrapes bites while you're out in the field. Did you know that it's an insect repellent. ooh really now. We're not going to be taking the bourbons that were drinking today. Using the an insect repellent no blood. It's a very short lived. The alcohol in Bourbon actually will repel mosquitoes enough and give you enough time to move to an area that maybe is less populated aided by them interesting. You can start a fire with Bourbon really you can most people think that you can't because it has a high water content. They tend to think of things like ever clear clear and stuff like that for starting the fire but if you can take the Bourbon and soak something like a paper or a rag that will hold the alcohol for a little bit longer. Don't just pour it on your sticks because then your sticks are just going to be wet race. Not GonNa Burn Yeah. You can actually use it to catch some light tinder on fire so you could start a fire with it so you put that under the sticks yeah so so. It's something that you need. Everybody needs it. We'll bourbon you need a little bit of Bourbon and your life. I like it so what is a Burgh. That's a big question that I get the most distinctive characteristic of a bourbon is it has to be number one at least fifty one percent corn. It can be a myriad of other things rise. other grains has to be fifty one percent corn number two. Oh it has to be placed into a charred barrel. A Lotta People use oak. I'm starting to see some other things coming up now. Caribbean Rum Barrows are using using some other things but the barrel can only be used one time. That's another big factor of Bourbon. Oh I like that so it has its own distinct thinks sort of life. It has its own sort of way that it moves. It's very patriotic and it brought us draws so every reason you should be putting it somewhere on your drink list. I agree absolutely all right so when we're talking Bourbon which this is what this entire episode is about by the way. You're welcome when we're talking Bourbon. What is your all time favorite bourbon. I know you have something. Thanks for every occasion. It's not really bourbon well. There's that but we pick something all time. All Time has to be your Jack Daniels. Even though that's Tennessee whiskey I am a I am a big Jack Daniels Fan so that would that would definitely definitely be right up there as number one. I think the one that we've shared together. That is probably been my favorite favorite would be bowman brothers sweet sixteen eighteen. That's a good one that was I think by far and away one of the best ones we've ever had and we've kept it for special occasions only yeah yeah so that would be the special occasion rhetoric. ooh. You know I like the local stuff even other bowman brothers. The regular line have the bowman brothers and then they have the single barrel. All their stuff is really good and we enjoy all those pretty much on a regular basis. We like going over there. We liked it. They're part of our community which makes it super important to us that we can promote them and we can be a part of them. The thera- part of what we do as far as special occasions you know we include them so that's a big deal. Yeah Yeah and and you know there you are buying local back into the community and you know your local business. I mean it really is a big deal. That's nice and you know what if you're not local. Pick it up because they make a damn good bourbon. They really do their great great great people over there. If you're in town make sure you tour it but me and they make good Bourbon. That's awesome his that's awesome so that was kind of the desert island question. That would be the desert island yeah okay. You're stranded but you have categories. I mean how do you go about. How do you get yourself into these situations which ones on a desert island? I yeah well. That's true bourbon my survival kits when I'm good you are. I'm sure I provided you with so it's GonNa be good. Well that's true. How do you go about 'cause I know. It's like a mood thing for you to I love it and that was great. I mean you go about picking from like the different you look at your Bourbon Bar and it's sort of like you know you guys have the color wheel that you get like. Lowe's or home depot the big. You have all jail voices voices or how do you go about having this special occasion. We should break this one out or is this a special enough occasion for us to break out the you know three hundred. I'm fifty dollar bottle of Bourbon or is it. Just we're kind of happy so we'll go with a sixty dollar bottle of bourbon right or do we start with three fifty and then work our way down uh-huh lately. It's been a lot of kind of bouncing around we we've been pretty grateful lately so we've been doing some pretty high end stuff following coming up with a bourbon bar that has over eighty bottles of Bourbon on. I mean we have a selection. We have this election and today. I kept my selection election two four to talk to you about okay because I felt like I wanted to cover sort of our general beverage averaging something from every day to a fairly special occasion but something that's going to ride a price range for pretty much everybody we're trying not to take take everybody up to a three hundred fifty dollar bottle of Bourbon. Is that the most expensive bottle bourbon you have ever purchased no well some of them though the most expensive one that we've ever purchase purchase at retail was two hundred and ten dollars but I mean with the way the secondary market is now which you're not supposed to be doing anyway. They just that's what's ruined ruined Bourbon now. Is You know it's the hip thing to do and everybody collects them. Nobody drinks them. They're just bottles on a shelf rang by we drink them. We enjoy them. We have bottle the home that we drank that. We purchased for eight hours on the secondary market. Now is going for seven hundred. Oh Wow we drink. It hit me. Enjoy it. Yeah we do and it's it's not it's not even on our like. This is a special occasion. Let's break out something really high end. It's just kind of our I'm in the mood for something a little different Hashtag Doug. You can't take it with you. You can't take it with you and and that I think is what's most important to us is that we get them and we enjoy them and we drink them and we have fun and and we now have the opportunity opportunity to share them with other people which makes it super awesome yeah because it's not only something that we're interested in and I've always been interested in Bourbon Todd only from the the last five years or so. I guess he he was Tequila Man for many many years and I always try to bring him over to my side dark side. We we had cookies. It obviously works and then one day he said Hey. What do you know about this Bourbon. What are you have you heard of this one and the next thing I knew he was he he was often running and making new bourbon friends and it's you know it's sort of a sort of fun for us so you've picked four. He's a really concentrate on okay I did. I tried to pick for the kind of ran an easy price range for everybody and one of them actually is not a bourbon. I know but hear me out on this. It's awry. I'm not a huge fan of rise. They're like three on the planet that I really really like. This happens to be one. It's super affordable. It's easy to drink and it's the first one that we're having tonight and I think that we should probably make sure that you have some water to drink because we are doing four bourbons tonight. you'll be fine. I swear so the first one that we're talking about tonight is this is an old forster and it's and it's a kentucky straight rise one hundred proof. I'm I'm GonNa tell you why I like it and then I'm going to let todd tell you why he likes it. I like it because it doesn't taste like a Ri-. If you'RE A if you're not a rye whiskey drinker her because you know that they have a very distinct flavor this doesn't do that..

Yeah it brings it more to the forefront easier for people to find out about learn about experience but these functional medicine doctors and some of these other chiropractors osteopaths some of these other not that they're not functional medicine but they're seen differently than medicine. They're bringing these practitioners into their office which means many times that insurance can cover it ooh yes. This can sometimes help people as well. It brings the information to the community but it also is a way for them to try it out affordably yeah and that's a big deal and look for rakia shares in your community for years. Yeah i hosted one one here in fredericksburg for many many years until i moved away and it was wonderful and each month we would have different practitioners come in and just the community could come by and it was fifteen minutes. They got fifteen minutes of healing from one or ten people. However many were there. It really didn't matter <hes> and they could they could try it out that way so you could meet different practitioners. You could talk to them in a very relaxed setting and that's a nice way to do it to look for <hes> meet up. I think does sometimes offer things like that. You may check meet up. Just don't like go looking forward right google because just just double. Check where you're going and what you're doing. Just just <hes> safety further yeah there you go safety first for all right so as we're getting ready to close off this episode and as we do every episode towards the end of the episode we <hes> we talk about bourbon because that's what you're going to get on this. You're gonna get <hes> bourbon. You're gonna get no b._s. I mean that's why we came up with the name the natural wellness you saw you're gonna get all of it so here's what i love. We had a question that leads right into it's time for how and this is going to actually lead elitist into another episode which we're excited about because we're going to be talking a whole episode about bourbon but here's the question how did your love of bourbon begin. Don't give it all away because that's coming up on another show teaser teaser teaser. Wow how did my my love of bourbon begin teaser teaser teaser. Oh that's easy a good southern girl there. We go there we go. I'm a good southern girl all urban we were. We were raised on bourbon just party life. Isn't it well well. I mean there were times when you were getting a cold or getting this and somebody gave you a shot of something always yeah i mean since i was very small. It's it's just always been. It's it was medicine in our house right so his me bill. Medicine is still medicine my house. I'm just saying ah still medicine all kinds of ways all right. It is time for us average rate okay so today because you kind of gave me a vague idea of what we were talking about but i knew new somehow i was talking about me you kind of alluded back around you alluded to the fact that it was sort of about me so i started thinking king about a bourbon that i wanted to bring in that that one of the things we don't really do is talk about me. We talk about being a professional standpoint of we never talk about me personally so the bourbon that i picked today is something that is near and dear to me and and it's important to me as susie not as a health practitioner not not as health practitioner not as anything i guess professional exempt somebody who loves bourbon and happens to be as i mentioned before relentlessly relentlessly patriotic yes so the bourbon that we are actually having today comes from heritage distilling and this is. I'm showing you now. Ooh this is the two thousand seventeen first special forces group bourbon. This is absolutely phenomenal. One of the things i like best about this bourbon is a it's affordable..

If someone comes to me for a consultation and they tell me that they have a situation in their life a health condition in their life and i tried to do muscle testing or something on them and i realized they're dehydrated. Address will nothing that i can do for them is going to work until i get them hydrated so i do the same thing for seventy two hours. I need you to drink this amount of water comeback. There'll be no charge when you come back. Just come back and let's let's recheck you and they'll come back after seventy two hours and they're still dehydrated and i'm like how did that go and i've had them look at it being say i just i really don't like water.

actually because i know a lot of people have questions and wanna drop off comments and of course went to a share it with other people so a a really good way to do it is if subscribe on i tunes wherever you're subscribed to drop off a comment drop off question and certainly give us a good review a good review it'd be nice it's a good review would be nice okay so i hear some beautiful sounds today and i know we're going to be talking about sound therapy so i'm very interested in this i have so many questions well that's good because sound therapy is something that i think is really misunderstood by a lot of people and it's such a wonderful therapy it's one of the many things that i do in working with see integrative medicine program and in working with all of my clients here and i think that more people could really benefit if they understood what sam therapy was and they didn't think it was just something crazy cowbells being banged on their head there's something so i'm looking forward to helping people understand a little better i think it's going to be one of those topics where we we really put to rest some of the myths about sound therapy in things like this and i think that's definitely saturday and i think in some ways in what we talk about today were gonna kinda ride the line for some people into something that's a little more esoteric and maybe they're used to but i promise you everything they were talking about today is fully rooted honest goodness as far as you can go in science in string theory if you're a string theory person 'em it's very easy to understand if you understand science and you understand the science behind it so that's what i hope people understand stand today why we use it as a therapy not as something that's just as i hear so often flew a lot of people have questions around the things like found therapy how did you come about getting interested in using sound therapy as a part of integrative wellness and your practice originally took a class on sound therapy using tuning forks probably in my goodness 'em maybe she nineteen ninety nine two thousand at the time i was just really interested i worked in a lot of different methodologies of energy work and of course sam therapy tuning fork therapy just became a part of sort of that global rela at the time the best part of the story because everybody likes a good story right absolutely so i had taken a class on tuning forks therapy and at the time i had a bull terrier his name is jake those of you know me know he was totally my hero euro he's the greatest dog but jake got into the trash one day and age some things he shouldn't have one of them being a corncob which made it about seventy five percent of the way through his intestine before it blocked long story short he ended up in an emergency situation with surgery they really didn't expect him to lives he made it through the surgery okay and so he's gonna be at this emergency clinic for a couple of days so i took my tuning forks and i went to the clinic they allowed me to go back and see him and he was pretty lethargic and again the doctor was standing nearby to tell me that we really didn't have a great outlook because once you cut open the gut and i said well it'll be fine so i brought the tuning forks out and i had a stomach fork and i hadn't intestine fork and i would just at first i wasn't putting them on him i was just putting them near him and you could see him perk up and he would move toward the front of the cajun this doctor was very anti tie what i was doing really should no clue what i was doing but she was very very opposed to what i was doing and she was making a lot of 'em i won't say snide but definitely some off handed comment in my direction doing so while i was there hey that check came walking in west a doberman and this dobermans all puffed up and apparently it had had some sort of surgery and they couldn't get it to pee so they were taking this dog in and out trying to get it to go to the bathroom and it wouldn't go as i'm sitting on the floor working on jake and the more i put the tuning forks jake he began to stand up and the doctors telling me that he can't stand up and i said obviously he can he climbed into my lap and he was perfectly happy as long as i was doing these you could see the color coming back into his gums i mean even healing in front of us while so this doberman at one point i turn my head and its nose was right next to my high which is not necessarily something you wanna see right so i they were saying they vet tech was talking to a doctor saying that you know they still couldn't get the dog go to the bathroom and this dog was very interested in what i was doing and i said well i have a bladder tuning fork here if you'd like meta to use it on the dog and the vet immediately shouted over no i wasn't allowed to touch the dog the dog away from me and the vet tech tried to circle the dog away in the dog winning a complete circling came right back to my face when the doctor left the room she said could you try and so i pulled the fork out and i let the dog smell it and and the dog would rest it snows against it and i tapped it and i put it on the dog and within a few seconds his whole body started to shake and vibrate wow and i said you should probably take that dog outside and the vet tech said no she i tried and i said you should to probably check northbound side and they took her out and she was able to avoid her bladder completely wow her job a jake made a full recovery within twenty four hours he was out of emergency hospital and i guess i never looked back from there i learned to teach people in the way that in the way that i utilize them which is different than maybe some of the ways that they've seen tuning forks used before i sort of develop my own methodology based on many years of doing this we call it harmonic resident therapy every client who comes in for massage has tuning fork therapy dog who comes to see me regardless of their condition has tuning fork therapy it just it it works that's amazing desserts really great stories and my follow up questions from the stories are first of all didn't realize you could take a whole class on tuning forks you know how fantastic you could take to from me and then i did not realize that you have a different tuning fork for different parts of the body i've no idea oh i have a tuning fork for every muscle in the body wow i have a tuning fork for every organ in the body and then we have one that will used in just a minute on its own it's the first sound ole miss the first sound the earth made it see meditation sound it amongst make so that they can center themselves and a ground themselves and when you hear this fork you will understand that sound perhaps for the first time it's a very grounding it's really centering it's good for a lot of people who have anxiety disorders sorters who have anxiety stress 'em there have been some studies that have been done with tuning forks on ptsd certainly a number of studies that have done been done with cancer patients just to alleviate their level of stress as they're going through treatment so i'm thinking about a lot of people who are not well versed in this kind of conversation and people who might think to themselves while that all sounds really interesting and and at the same time you may have lost me at meditation sounds ten home so why does it work why does it work how does it work sure that's that's probably the easiest thing that i could explain to you so we're gonna i'm in a kind of challenge you just a little bit and i'm gonna look at you really intensely they say this so you me these microphones this table this room this building all of the vibration everything that is inside of us is vibration healthy muscle tissue vibrates at a certain level unhealthy muscle tissue vibrates at a certain level there's a wonderful study which actually originally done on on and just ignore the next three seconds on quantum theory testing sound waves one of the first ways they ever tested sound waves were tuning forks from that advancement they would see how long it took me sound wave to pass through a healthy tissue and unhealthy to issue and so these folks are actually formed on the vibration of that issue so each one of them to make it as easy as possible vibrates at the level of the healthy tissue so if you have someone who has a stomach dysfunction whatever it happens to be if we were to take de any type of herbs supplements or medication to try to rectify whatever that stomach situation was you're either eight doing the work for the stomach or be you're asking the stomach to do something it's unable to do make sense okay so when we utilize tuning forks because that vibration is the same as healthy stomach issue would be it tells the stomach it tells that issue that each healthy that it's functional the way that it's supposed to be and therefore it's able to process those herbs or that medication the way it's supposed to so were kind of tricking the body but not really but at the same time were giving it a little boost and actually giving it a level of health so that it can do its job for that period of time mm okay but everything is a vibration you can tell exactly how someone feeling by the tone of voice before you ever see their face you can tell by the sound that they make you could tell by the way they breeze you can tell someone on the radio whether they're having a good day or a bad day i'm sure that you can tell when we're doing these weather where rusher not nothing river road no um you can tell everything by the sound of someone's voice because it's a.

"That means that it's a preparation that it contains several different constituents that work in the body in. Several different ways. So maybe you're taking it for sleep. But maybe the reason you're not sleeping is because you're having muscle pain. And maybe the reason you're having muscle pain is because you're having too much tension during the day, this will address all of that. So we're talking about some of the best ways to introduce CBD into your life. One thing that I am, just interested in your reaction to have you not heard every single day. There is a new product infused with CBD every day about burgers, and fused with CBD at restaurants, and lotions and skin-care. And there's a lot of question around like is that safe is that okay is, is the same thing. You're talking about should we just look for this European grown hemp stock. I think it's important to, to understand these, these basic ideologies in what you're looking for, if you're taking it internally, what you want is European grown hemp stock oil. I realized that as things change, and as regulations change in the United States, and don't get me wrong. I would love to be able to wreck. Commend a one hundred percent United States grown product, the problem with that is. And the reason that this time I can't is it in two thousand fourteen the two thousand fourteen farm Bill made it. So that CBD from industrial hemp could not be grown slash produced in the United States with the two thousand eighteen farm Bill, which of course in passed in December of last year. There are a lot of companies that are coming up now that are selling a United States grown CBD product. That's wonderful, and I certainly encourage small business to, to grow and do the things that they need to do. However, with industrial hemp, if you understand the plant, and how it works with the land. It's very good at removing waste from the land. So it's a wonderful thing for farmers to grow to help clean up their land, or if they have been growing things for a long time, or, and they want to change up the ground or. If perhaps they have over processed land, and they want to grow something else. They're industrial hemp will pull the excess minerals and the waste out of the ground. I always recommend to my customers and clients that at least for the next two years, they not by anything that comes from an American grown product unless that land has already been certified as USDA organic, because you don't know what's actually going to be in that product. Right. And that concerns me that's an issue, especially with somebody who has a health issue that they're coming in for CBD for you. Don't need an additional case of lead or mercury or any of the other pesticides that may have been grown on that property. So at this point, I really do lean people toward that hemp stem cells are used in a lot of cosmetic products at this time, which is really wonderful because the way again that industrial hemp grows utilizing those stem cells, for regeneration of cells in the body. Even to just plump up the skin and make it look. Great to plump up the hair and make it look great. I think it's wonderful again, you wanna lean toward a company that, you know, has a clean record has been doing a great job. And their products are clean across the board, regardless. So you're talking about looking at the standards and you already know that the standards from the European him. Stock are there higher the higher standards much higher? They are the highest in the industry, and it's important to understand, and again, a company that maybe importing it's important, it's important to understand, are they importing raw material, or are they importing a pre-processed oil? This is just another factor to look at when you're when you're purchasing a product, but definitely leaning toward a European grown hemp, stalk oil. We know exactly what that THC level is going to be every single time. I never have to worry about my clients having a problem with their CD botox. It's just a it's just another. Level of safety. That helps me provide them with the best quality product that I can for them and their families. When people come in, and they ask you kind of, you know, open the question of so what all can see. BDO treat. Usually ask them how much time they have. This is. This is kind of my wheelhouse. I guess, CBD in particular, I had a friend who was very ill, many years ago and began researching CBD to help him with the symptoms of illness that he was having. So I would say at this point, I probably have five to six hundred hours logged just of continuing education and seminars and classes and private talks, and you name it in understanding CBD and how it can work the ability to reach out to some of the leading members in this community and talked to them and say, hey, I'm facing something. Now that I've never seen before. There was a recent boost from customers who apparently had seen something on the internet. That said, CBD helps you lose weight. And suddenly ahead, a lot of people coming in, and I had to disappoint them by saying, well, that's not a thing. But let me help you understand why it's not a thing and. Sort of what it's targeting what is looking at and how maybe we can address that on a different level. I have people who come here for everything from, again, muscle aches pain. They want to just feel better. They wanna sleep better. They want less anxiety. They've heard that it will help with nervous tension keeps them from stabbing their boss in the neck with a spoon when he really deserves it in all the way to children who are having trouble paying attention in school. I've seen a lot of parents that have started to do some research on that, and are coming in to ask questions about that people that are at end of life and are having pain and anxiety about where where they're going what's going to happen to them. Their pain is being controlled through medication perhaps through hospice, but there's not a lot that you can do to control that questioning mind. So this is something that we can do to help them just relax. And that's a big deal. He's a huge. Dj deal and it's a wonderful gift to be able to give them his. So we're talking about introducing CD into your life. Maybe this is something you're educating yourself on right now. And it's kind of new to you, one of the things that you talk about as microdosing and then you referred to how to how to how to eat an elephant, right, people come in, and maybe they've been taking another product or they've been looking online or they've been talking to somebody about taking a product and, and everything that they're saying is why have to take one to two droppers, or I have to take there's these special instructions of what I wanna do. And I always like to help people understand that microdosing is what's most important because again, we're just using enough to activate our own body's natural system to do what it needs to do naturally. So I always ask them what how do you eat an elephant? You eat an elephant one bite at a time. So we start really small and we work our way up if you need more you take more, but I don't recommend starting with a high dose because you're not allowing your body to do what it does naturally and taking too high of a does because I have so many people, and I know you've seen this who come in and say, I want the strongest dose that you have. And I say no. Let's let's find out why if you take too much it stops your body from producing the way that it needs to stops your body from regenerating the way that it needs to because it doesn't need to because it has enough in there. The point in taking this is to make your body bring itself back and to get back to that level of homeo- stasis question if I'm vegan. Can I change it to how to eat a poem tree? We can eat a palm tree. I was just making sure. I am so on board with eating upon tree one coconut at a time that could be thing to have a drink. It's that time. Oh, it's that time so today since we're talking about CBD since we're sticking in that zone. I have brought for you. It does, you know, me I like to pair things together today. I went with something a little fun. And this is. Dutta Dr Stoner's smokey herb whiskey. This is so much fun. I thought we'd go with something a little different this week, one thing since we're talking about CBD and Dr stone whiskey. One thing that people don't understand about bourbon, is that. Every bourbon is a whiskey, not every whiskey is a bourbon there you go. So Dr stone is a light American whiskey. It's got a fun herbal flavor. And today, we are having their recipe for a doctor Stoner's sour, which is equal parts of Dr Stoner's, herb blended, whisky, and lemon juice. And I have to say I'm kind of digging this. I'm digging into it's very it is sour. So it it, it definitely hits that, but then the after that after taste, I wonder what that after taste. There's a lot on their lot going on. Yes..
"bourbon" Discussed on Bourbon
"The people that don't want to use alcohol pretty much anything. We're talking about today. You could certainly use apple cider vinegar. It's a little different it dissolves the component to little bit differently, but being as how we are bourbon people today, we're talking about alcohol, right? Because we're bourbon people. Well, you saw it in the name of the podcast, it was there. It was all you saw. You're I mean seriously. When you walked in. Yes. Aw. On the door and speaking of we're actually going to have as always on this fantastic podcast. We're going to have a suggestion for a fabulous bourbon at the end of this episode. So you're gonna hang around for that we are. And I pick something super special today on everything today is about what you should have or may have at home. This is definitely a bourbon that we have at home, but maybe not something that everyone has gonna give them an alternative to that to who I'm excited. What kind of alcohol and how much I know you have thoughts around all of that. So any alcohol that you're using you're to want to have something that's between ninety one hundred proof. This is this is a great range for breaking down, most of the constituents that are going to be in the type of herbs and things that we're talking about here. There are some that you're going to need a stronger alcohol for of course. Here in Virginia. We cannot buy. Ever clear, However, I can drive to colonial beach, and by ever clear or do have some amazing clients, who will bring me ever clear from military bases. So if you live in a steady state town that you can get ever clear. It's always good to have on hand. More for essential oil, blends than it is, for these because it is a little strong, and I would recommend you water down. So the alcoholic your bar, you're gonna want something between ninety and one hundred proof pretty simple. You can pick it up at any liquor store anywhere. But what do you pick up basic number one vodka? Everybody loves vodka vodkas great. If you wanna have a flavored vodka, if you feel like that'll be better for your family. That's great. However, keep in mind, it does have artificial flavoring and typically it has sugar which we want to avoid the only thing I don't like about the flavored vodkas. Is that the flavor doesn't seem natural? It is not. Yes. So what we're looking for here is basically the fact that vodka is flavourless. So you can use a lot of things it has some really mild components. It's super easy to use. You can mix it with pretty much any herb. And if we're going to be really honest, here, it's fairly inexpensive. You're not looking for the most expensive vodka on the shelf, which are looking for is evolved kinda that fits these parameters that you can stick somewhere and you have in the event that you need it or if you're like me, and you do bulk, tinctures something that, you know, you combine a large container in its, you're not going to have to mortgage your house. Right. Right. So as long as it fits, those, the alcohol by volume parameters were in good shape vodka is wonderful in that it's great for both topical use and for internal use so a wonderful way to use it topically is this sounds horrible or wonderful depending on who you are take about a tablespoon or two of Cayenne pepper, which I tend to buy the pound for lots of reasons. Put a tablespoon or so of Cayenne pepper into. Measuring Cup with about three quarters of a Cup of vodka. You're going to heat it slowly in the microwave dude by slowly. I mean, slowly, I mean, ten to fifteen seconds at a time, okay. Okay. Super slow small amounts. We do not need to make any sorts of explosive devices eight you wanted to get warm steep. The herbs for about fifteen minutes, and then strain them out through a coffee filter. This is an amazing warming. Limit for muscle aches, pain cold feet from being out too long. Cayenne pepper is great if to sprinkled in the shoes in the wintertime to keep your feet warm, but for any type of muscle pain. This is one of the best things that you can use. So it's a great way to utilize vodka and Cayenne, which you would have in your kitchen. Right. Really? Quickly. Once you have strained the herb out of it. Stick it in your fridge, and it's good for pretty much ever allow it doesn't go bed. So there's a great way to use it. Topically as a muscle rub. All seen the fifty sixties and seventies TV shows where somebody goes in for massage and they, they pour the crazy Lyneham it on them. And they slap them around a little bit. Well, really? That's all it was. Right. Was vodka to open up the plotters rain drives it in so vodka number one super simple. Number two, at this point everybody either gonna love me or hate me, number two, that you should always have on your bar is Yeager my, sir. I personally am not a fan of Yeager Meister. However, I own a bottle of it. I've I tried to never ever drink Yeager Meister because to me, Yeager Meister is medicine Yeager was originally invented for people who were head either stomach upset or some type of cold in the chest, the herbs and things that are in Yeager, make it a perfect digestive bidder. So if someone's trying to decide if their stomach is over acid or under acid in whether they needed I just of enzyme or not I encourage them to take. Two or three drops of Yeager in a shot glass of water right before they eat. If they feel wonderful, we know which direction to go if they feel horrible. We know which direction to go interesting. But it helps us it's a wonderful digestive enzyme. But yet, you're can also be used for those of you who make cocktails and other ways as a bitter in your cocktail. There's no sense to in buying a separate bottle bidders, just use Yeager doesn't need to be prepared. It can be used just as it is for children, young people. Obviously I recommend just putting a quarter an eighth even of a teaspoon of it into just a regular Cup of tea. Makes a huge huge difference. Not a lot. And again, I'm not a fan of the taste, but a lot of people are for people that have digestive problems. I encourage them to carry a small dropper bottle of it in their person. Just take a few drops right for the food. It just helps to processor food a little more side. No. That was my first drink at twenty one and do you still drinking and there's that and there's? And there's. It's a wonderful, wonderful. I absolutely look at Yeager as medicine, and I think God that it's available because it's the one thing that I can say to people go by this. Yeah, I have to do anything else to it. You'll know when you need it. Yeah. And you know, think of the cute little Saint Bernard with the barrel. Just envision that he has Yeager in that barrel. Right in your world will be perfect. Yes. Well, I did not out the chest cold that I had afterwards knowed. It no doubt. Yuck out, a lot of things. Yes. We'll just move on. We all have stories, the next thing that I recommend that people have on their bar is a red wine and a white one, they have completely separate energies, the red wine that I recommend is always a port port is really, really wonderful for helping with digestive issues. So think about after a heavy meal, a little glass port. That's great. But what people don't know, is that an eighth of a teaspoon of port in again, just a shot glass size of water. Will help to aid digestion, it will help with flatulence. Are we allowed to say flagellate are flatulence it helps with flatulent? Yes. And it's wonderful for helping to reduce inflammation, especially in the gastrointestinal tract hashtag. What's that smell? And then there's that that's always an option, and then for a white wine, Sherry, is, is wonderful. If you think about Sherry being used in things like French onion soup. Oh, yeah. Right. Well, French onion soup is a wonderful food to give to somebody who is just coming off of a long illness, because it's a soft broth. It's very antibiotic. It's just a, a really good nourishment for them and Sherry works. Really? Well in there, I look at Sherri for people that have sort of they tend to look debilitated. They tend to look a little more delicate in what they're doing. But again, when we're looking at this for two AM, if you wake up to AM and you have that bloated gross gase hashtag. What's that smell a little bit of port tiny little amount? We're not talking about an entire bottle. We're talking about at the most half a teaspoon makes a huge difference. If you have that sort of. We're in the south feel limp as a dish rag moment. Little bit, Sherry really helps to revitalize the body. Okay. Using wine is good because it's not quite as strong as some of the other alcohols. And it also helps to because of just the way that wine is made. It also helps to dissolve some of the other non water soluble substances that would be in an herb that you're using it with. So it tends to work very quickly wine can be heated much more effectively than say, vodka, or high proof bourbon or something like that can, and it makes a nice warming, drink even just putting a little bit of cinnamon into import makes a huge difference for a lot of people. So they're tiny little things. Again, it's a big subject. We're trying to keep it simple. But these are things that you can have on hand. And of course, we cannot go into a medicine cabinet without we can't, we can't. And it's important to say that in my. House in particular, we have two separate Nessin, chests. We have a bourbon only medicine just and then we have the other medicine show, st-. So when it comes to our bourbon medicine, chests for us, we have a huge amount of choices I would say at this point on the bourbon bar. We probably are pushing close to sixty bottles. Well, we are bourbon fans. Yeah, we like them which really gives you a kind of the accolade you need to. Oh, thank reduce the suggestions here at the end of every episode of really those show off your credentials. Right. I'm not just a Jim beam drinker. That did I should talk about mine bourbons kind of thing and my husband is well. And it's, it's a really wonderful thing that we share together. So when it comes to bourbon, the one that we're going to talk about at the end of the show would be so wonderful. But what's most important is again? I don't want people to break the Bank if Jack Daniels is your jam go. If Evan Williams is your jam go. It really doesn't matter to me, if you're not a bourbon drinker by what's in your price range, I like bourbon because of all the alcohol is that we've discussed unless you're moving to a brandy bourbon, the only one that has a flavor. Bourbon is the most easily flavored naturally. So bourbons tend to come in a little bit stronger of a alcohol by volume. You can add things like open a bottle and just adds some herbs to the bottle and let it sit on your bar. It really requires no more preparation than that. I don't care if they're cherries. I don't care if it's wild cherry. Bark, whether it's a dried herb fresh something that you pick from your yard. It really doesn't matter because the alcohol content is going to keep it fresh in there for a certain period of time you're done. You've made medicine Totta. And then when your friends come over on Friday night, and you want to give him a really cool cocktail. You pop open that bottle of bourbon, that may be has some cinnamon and fennel in it. And you say here, try this so not only are you giving them a great drink. But you're giving him some wonderful medicine as well. I think that bourbon is the best tasting of all the alcohols. But that's just me. And again, it makes the best the best cough syrup. You can make it ahead of time. Everybody in the world is heard of hot toddy. Well, hot toddy is only my cough syrup with T at it. Oh, okay. So we tend to make it up at the beginning of the season..

"bourbon" Discussed on Bourbon
"Welcome to the debut episode of the podcast, bourbon and branches and nobody s I'm d Daniels sort of your Butler here for the fantastic debut episode. And the owner of the mansion is also here. Let's introduce ourselves. All right, we'll technically, I'm not the owner of the mansion, actually, my amazing husband Todd is the owner of the mansion. He just allows me to come here and do this, that I'm not bored. But I am Susie Woollam and I am the face and the voice behind the center of town in downtown Fredericksburg Virginia who go Fredericksburg. We're gonna talk about so many things. And of course, we want to introduce everyone to what you do and your background. And why when they come into me, you, they're going to have an experience. That's so sweet and experience. I think it's an experience. I love meeting everybody that comes into see me, so I have the center town here in downtown Fredericksburg, but I have all sorts of expensive initials that go behind my name, that don't go anywhere near toward by me, a Cup of coffee every day, I am a traditional natural path. I am a board certified and licensed massage therapist. I am a Rakia master teacher. I am a clinical aromatherapist. I am an end of life. Dula. And an all around really nice guy I like that. Not only are you going to get fantastic information on this podcast. But you have a great mission for this podcast. It's very important to me. And, you know, one of the things that, that I tell everybody who comes in here to see me is never asked me a question that you don't want an answer to I am blatantly honest at all levels, which some people don't want. I am very quick to tell people who are looking for a therapist that will just hold their hand and Pat, their back and say, they're there that they should find somebody else, and I will certainly help them. Find somebody else my job here is to be open and honest, and answer the tough questions that most people don't want to answer people are looking for quick fix in many situations. And that's not what we do here. So I love that you are described everything here is a full service, education based integrative wellness center. What does integrative medicine mean? To you. And great medicine means to me that what we are doing. Here is where maybe in the past people thought of massage, or reflexologist, or Rakia, or some of the services that we offer here as alternative or complimentary over the last, maybe ten fifteen years, they really have become integrative with what people think of as traditional services traditional medical treatment. So you may be seeing an on college issed for your cancer treatment, but Bihi may also refer you here for massage or reflects allergy. You may be seeing a nutritionist for a condition that you have going on, and they may refer you here to get the best quality supplements that you can to help make sure that you're actually getting some nutrition in your body. So integrative is just combining many different types of therapy, into one and all of your healthcare practitioners working as a team to make sure that you lead the best. Life that you can when you are dealing with people every single day, I've seen you firsthand do this. When people walk in, and they have questions, and they have a story to tell, and they have a background and they have concerns and some of them are in some really hard times in their in their lives, and you will take the person as a whole and say this, let's hear the whole story and let's get all the pieces, and then let's figure some things out. And that really is the true definition of integrative medicine. So you really do show that you practice. What you preach. Absolutely. It's important to me that people know that when they come to see me, I'm not interested in what type of disease person has I'm interested in what type of person disease has I want to know what your lifestyle is like I wanna know what you're doing. I want to know what's going on with you. I wanna know everything about you. It becomes a very professionally intimate relationship where we become. Friends, and we're able to discuss things that are difficult to sometimes discuss with other practitioners, and as your Butler for this fantastic podcast. Let me take you to the front sitting room where we're going to also have another fantastic discussion, every episode. We're also going to be talking about bourbon, we are going to be talking about bourbon and it may seem an odd stretch for a natural wellness podcast to talk about bourbon, but I end my husband are both huge bourbon fans and from a natural health standpoint, there are a number of times where I will recommend bourbon to a client, whether it's doing a muscle rub or making a cough syrup or a number of other things hot toddy. Everyone knows about a hot toddy. So bourbon is a big part of our life. It's something that we really enjoy, and we like sharing with other people, and the most important part of that is yes. I drink bourbon I am. In fact, human, I am not a perfect soul. I'm not going to tell you to be a perfect soul. We're going to go through this experience together and learn together and share together in a very honest open format with bourbon, I love the I love that. And, and really like you you're knowledgeable in so many things, including bourbon, you're knowledgeable in so many things. So I love that when people come and talk to you, whether they call you on the phone or drop your Email, or walk in person in this beautiful shop, you will give them your time and give them your message and give them your education. You're not holding anything back and you are not. You're not tied to anybody. So it's not. You don't have to answer to anyone else. You're giving them everything you have your giving them all of that knowledge that isn't that what we're supposed to do? Aren't we supposed to share what we know? And aren't we supposed to be a community and share with each other, and to me -education is the most important? Thing I will on a number of -cations. And I know you've seen it. In fact, in being in here. I will tell somebody not to buy something from me because they don't need it, but I will educate them on what maybe they do need, or what they can do at home, or a place that they can start. And I think that, that's what's lacking today is that there's such a push toward a product, but people don't know why they're supposed to have that product or how to use it appropriately. But here, what I want to do is help you understand what's going on in your life. Help you find a way to accept it approach. It embrace it in many cases, and to find a way to move forward in evidence based knowledge, which is what's most important to me. This is not a company's website. This is not a blog. This is not a somebody's opinion. This is evidence based information as a board certified massage therapist. I'm required to take continuing education but. On my own last year alone. I took twenty seven hours of continuing education, just in essential oils alone. Wow. There's a lot to know with that. There's a lot to know with that. Yes. A lot to know with that. Speaking of a central oils, I've actually seen you create a blend for someone. That's pretty cool. We do we do custom blending here. Essentials can be expensive depending on what you're trying to buy and for me, what's most important for me for the shop is that we only carry essential oils that come from small family, farms, and small importers. I'm not beholden to any company and I only carry certified organic and fair trade. If I can't get an essential oil that certified organic or Fairtrade I don't carry it. I only carry camomile in camomile season, which most people have never heard of important to me that people get what they need when they need it, and that everything is the best quality that they can get. But that means that some. They are expensive. My rose is incredibly expensive, but I will be happy to make you a blend with that rose. And then you can try it and see if it's even the right thing for you at all. And of course, this podcast is going to be something that touches on so many of the areas that we've discussed already. But let's talk about some of the topics that everyone will here on bourbon branches, and no BS. So the branches of that comes from the many branches of things that we do here. So, again, lots of expensive initials, but it's important for me that people understand that we reach out to them wherever they're at. So we're going to talk to people on a very basic level about things like essential oils, not something from a company standpoint, but from actual evidentiary based information that I can cite, if they need to we're going to look at herbs, and we're going to look at supplements, and we're gonna look at therapies, which is. Such a huge thing. There's a lot of different therapies out there and people don't understand what they are or what they're supposed to be or what it should be like. And so we're going to talk to people in a very basic level about what is Ricky. What is a massage what shouldn't shouldn't happen in a massage where you shouldn't shouldn't go for a massage we're going to talk about CBD in just a couple of weeks. Topic. Yeah. Big topic for us. We are big educators of our community on CBD. It's very important and have a huge amount of members of our community doctors and therapists in our community, who send their clients here because they know that they're going to get the best education that they can, whether they buy here or not on CBD. We're going to talk about a little bit of everything we're going to talk about your coal in one episode so exciting, you know, you want to your cringing. The conversations you wanna know more about, but are afraid to ask people, and now you can do it in the privacy of your own home, in your pajamas and no one will ever know. Fantastic. The power of the podcast power of the puck. I love it going back to CB. It's interesting almost every single time, I've been here with you and just hanging out and having discussion get ready for the podcast. Someone walks in and ask about CBD that is a big topic right now. And so I'm sure we'll cover in more than one episode but it's huge and people wanna know and they wanna learn it is huge and my hope, here is that again, whether you purchase here in the shop, or whether you purchase somewhere else, and I'm not going to give a brand name. That's really important to me. I want people to find the brand that works for them. But what I am going to give them is solid information, what they should and should not be looking for, you know, companies that there are companies out there that have THC in them. And if you're taking the. Those in your working your not going to pass urine test at work, and understanding why that's important and understanding what how CBD works in your body. I like to tell my customers that the body does not have a Tylenol system. But it does have an Endo canal system. Well, do we have lost three index for some of these big words that you'll be using? And do cannabinoid it means just that you have a canal system. This inside your body, as opposed to a Fido canal, which means that it comes from a plant you heard it here. First there you go. There you go. See term some of the other topics we'll be talking about vitamins and supplements. That's also also very big people coming in and saying, okay, what do I need to be on mitt taking all of these things, and it's not helping at all. I'm not sure absolutely. And we do client consultations here, and that's something that I will sit down with someone maybe they've gotten their advice from the internet or a well-meaning friend, or any number of resources, and they'll come in, and they'll have a whole bag full of supplements, and I sit down with them, and I'll talk to them about why they're taking them what they're taking. And I really walk them through sort of taking apples to apples of, what that supplement has that may or may not be benefiting them and how it compares to something else. They're doing so those consultations are. Really nice to just have somebody give a good starting point on where they're going with their own natural health. One of the other big topics that I know you love to talk about. And I, I love that you offer this as a service pet therapy pet care. This is so important, and people want to take care of their pets in a more natural way. And how can they do it? And it's a big deal. You only love that because you're as much of a pet lover I love pets. I do work with a couple of the local veterinary offices who refer their patients to me. We do massage on dogs, and we have had cows and pigs and goats and. Wow. We had birds one time, but they didn't get a massage. They just didn't hear singing and it was lovely we actually had a cow in the shop..
