Catnip – How it Gets Cats High
Maura Davies joins us for our Friday pet segment, and we talk about how catnip effects the behavior of cats. Catnip is an herb that works on about two-thirds of cats. Cats like to roll in catnip, lick it, chew it, and paw at it. Maura talks about where it comes from and how you can give this relaxing herb to your cats. She even tells us it is a great mosquito repellent. Learn more about the SPCA and donate to help them save as many homeless animals as they can.
Immune Support, CBD, and More
Dr. Jonny Bowden joins us today to talk about some of the best ways to boost and support your immune system and we talk about the benefits of CBD. Our immune systems are designed to fight unwanted invaders like bacteria and viruses. But, we have things that can impact the force of our immune system. Things like environmental pollutants, poor food quality, toxins, lack of sleep, and lifestyle choices, can inhibit your immune system from working as well as it potentially could. Dr. Jonny gives us practical ways and supplements to boost our immune systems. Then we talk with Dr. Jonny about CBD and the benefits to our mental and physical health.
