Mission #84

On Board: Nykki Hardin
Mission: Cleansing Your Body & Your Mind

The Co-Pilot:

Some years ago, I went to Thailand with nothing more than two small backpacks and a big appetite for adventure. Purely by chance (or fate), I ended up at a week-long cleanse program on the beautiful island of Koh Samui. In hindsight, that cleanse wasn’t the best for me. It involved drinking herbs that hurt my stomach and doing uncomfortable colonics. But the experience was transformational, and since then I’ve learned better ways to cleanse.

Today, I’m joined by a woman with whom I have many incredible life parallels, including our love for both travel and cleansing. Nykki Hardin is a wellness expert who formulated her own 21-day cleanse. She holds a Masters in Spiritual Psychology, a term she’ll explain in our conversation today, and is incredibly passionate about helping people reach their peak potential in both mind and body. We talk today about how intimately the two are linked, and how it’s possible to begin healing and thriving.
