The wellness industry is not exempt from the culture of white supremacy that plagues the U.S. (and much of the world). Far from it: For an industry that purports to be healing, racist and white-washing behaviors can feel even more insidious. On Thursday, June 25th, we brought together four industry leaders for an honest and open conversation about what needs to change to make wellness a truly safe space for all.

After learning how to overcome her anxiety and depression naturally through diet and plants, Elisa became dedicated to sharing the benefits of alternative medicine with others.
