New Podcast Series Intro: Person & Planet
Hello everyone, this is Stephanie Krubsack with Purevant Living. For the past two years I have been recording podcast episodes with amazing guests under the Women in Wellness and Things You Should Know Podcast series. This year I’ve decided to combine the two into one series called Person & Planet, also focusing on highlighting guests from around the world. Personal wellness and the health of our environment are intimately connected, so I wanted to create a series that combines awareness of these amazing initiatives, products, services, and businesses that benefit person and planet. Join me in spreading the word about “all things good” and stay tuned for the upcoming Person & Planet publication. Maybe you enjoy listening to podcasts such as this one, or prefer reading articles online, or reading directly from a magazine or book. I plan to cover these forms of media, to ensure that the greatest number of individuals can learn how to benefit their personal health and become more conscious about the world around them and ways to protect it. Thank you to past and present listeners and guests for your support, and feel free to contact me to share any initiatives that you think I should share on the podcast or publication at sk@purevantliving.com. You can also learn more at purevantliving.com or sign up for the newsletter and find me on Facebook and Instagram at purevantliving or skparfait. Thank you for caring about person & planet, as the world needs more of all things good! Follow the new series on Anchor or Apple Podcasts.

18: MILWICKEE CANDLES, NON-TOXIC LIVING, ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING, THE NOSTALGIA OF SCENTS | DANIELA IANNELLO
Daniela Iannello is the owner and founder of Milwickee Candles. For her, creating Milwickee Candles made perfect sense. After years of working at an integrative health clinic, she learned so much about the benefits of living a more natural lifestyle. She took that knowledge, paired it with her art degree and deep love for aromatherapy and made exactly what she had been searching for, a luxury candle that is clean-burning, non-toxic, eco-friendly and smells amazing. Every time you light your Milwickee Candle, her hope is that your space gets a little cozier, smells even better, and that you remember to be mindful and intentional with all that you allow into your life. Learn about toxic-free candles and home items, biodegradable packing peanuts, and reusable product packaging.  "Your whole body needs to be healthy including your mind, including your space. I want people to know what’s in their spaces, rethinking and pausing when they buy something and bringing it back to their home, what’s actually in there." -Daniela Iannello

17: INTEGRATIVE FAMILY MEDICINE IOWA, DISRUPTING THE CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL TREATMENT MODEL, IV VITAMIN & NUTRITION THERAPY | KARA DOBELIS POHREN
Kara Dobelis Pohren is a MSN RN and ​​Founder & CEO of Integrative Family Medicine. Kara wore several medical hats since the start of her nursing career in 2008. She practiced in Critical Care, Surgery, and operations management before starting IFM. Kara completed her undergraduate (BSN) degree at the University of Iowa, her master’s (MSN) degree at Grand Canyon University, and is currently completing her Nurse Practitioner degree. Her own health journey led her to this place. After traditional medicine held no answers and she faced undiagnosed symptoms and ineffective treatments, she found her own answer in integrative medicine that included lifestyle changes and a multi-pronged approach to total healthcare that not only changes health, but that changes lives. After discovering the number of people who had stories similar to her own, she found herself in a unique position to do something about it. Not only did the integrative model open up treatment opportunities not available in traditional medicine, but it also allows her, as a provider, to become independent of healthcare systems that prioritize revenue over patient care.
