The SBD team reunites to discuss a topic that’s become divisive and heavily politicized. When it comes to health, in the past, people have been allowed to make their own decisions for pretty much all things and given the opportunity to discuss with their physician if unsure. But of course, no one alive today ever lived through a global pandemic.
I think we can all agree that treating others with respect is critical and realizing people are free to make decisions based on their own personal health. Mandates of any kind are going to bring forth some strong emotions on both sides of an issue. Ultimately there needs to be more discussion, listening and understanding. The finger pointing and name calling won’t bring people together but only cause more division.
Holistic Health Practitioner Tonya Fines shares her knowledge with co-hosts Chris Wilson, Mike Westerdal and Samantha Harrison in this special bonus episode on Strong By Design.
