This podcast was amazing!!! Thank you for doing it! I gained so much knowledge. I am starting with the apple cider vinegar before meals. I did that years ago but got away from it. Joy would you be able to send me an email with all the info on each one of your teas you discussed to my email so I could print this info off? I would really appreciate it! Have a great day!!🤗❤️
