Can you get rid of toxins through your sweat? This is the question that floated around in my head after sweating for an hour (intentionally!) at Shape House. Whether your heat is far-infrared induced (like mine was), from a sauna, or just being outside on a hot summer day, I set out to finally answer the question - are you actually toxic?

On today’s episode, I share...

  • Why I intentionally got wrapped up like a burrito to sweat for 55 minutes
  • The benefits of sweating (and how it works)
  • If you can actually sweat out toxins aka the elusive “detox”
  • And if you’re even really toxic to begin with
