Overdosing on wellness (it's a thing)

  • D stands for Detox, Dharma, Dulse … and Debt
  • You’re so “cleansed,” your digestive tract sparkles brighter than Martha Stewart’s silver

In our modern world as "in touch" beings, we're flooded with tips, tricks, recipes, and optimizations.  They come at us from all angles: friends, celebrities, "influencers," Instagram, email newsletters.

Food aside, we ingest so freaking much on a daily basis, it's no wonder we feel overwhelmed and insufficient on this quest to BE. OUR. BEST. SELVES.  We can't digest it all.

I wrote this article to be a tongue-in-cheek reminder of when we might need a wake up call; when we're chasing our tail down the rabbit-hole of perfection, knowing in our gut that we'll never pop out the other side as rainbow unicorns, made of stardust and adaptogens, in the Land of Bottomless Bulletproof Coffee.
