#104 - JW Ross: On an Elixir that Supports Focus, Calm, and Sex

Throughout history, cultures around the world have used different solutions for social lubrication. And while many of us have been socialized to think that alcohol is the best way to relieve social awkwardness and have a good time, it comes with many negative unintended consequences. So, what’s the alternative? That’s a question that Botanic Tonics founder, and today’s guest, JW Ross, set out to answer. After struggling with alcohol addiction, JW wanted to find a solution for his social awkwardness that wouldn’t have detrimental effects on his body. He deeply researched the plants used by different societies worldwide, and that’s when he learned about kava. Where alcohol amplifies you, kava calms you down. Since trying JW’s Feel Free Wellness Tonic, it’s become a crucial part of my daily self-care and something I recommend to many clients. It’s one of the few products I’ve found that sustain me, help me rebalance my nervous system, and show up in the world in alignment and integrity.  (00:09:50) Work Hard, Play Hard (00:14:38) Taking Advantage of the New Brain (00:19:33) Social Lubricants (00:36:56) Experimenting With Kava (00:50:38) Getting Started with Kava Visit the show notes for more: https://www.BelovedHolistics.com/104 Made possible by: FullWell - code BELOVED10 for 10% off the best prenatal vitamins and men's virility vitamins on the planet!

Om Podcasten

We don’t need to burn down the medical industrial complex to change women’s healthcare. We merely need a life raft to demonstrate how truly holistic care is better than pharmaceuticals and surgery. This podcast is the catalyst for a new take on pregnancy, postpartum, menopause, and everything in between. It features conversations about relationships, medicine, food systems, political activism, spirituality, and the sacred rites of passage in life, namely birth and death.
