Just a note that Sallyanne wanted me to make a minor correction/a gentle reminder that you can technically get a divorce without lawyers, if a couple absolutely 100% agree, they can draft their own "consent orders" and submit to the court for the stamp of approval. Usually, each party has a lawyer look over it before submitting to the court but it IS possible to do it without lawyers.

Our Guest: Amie Skilton

Former functional medicine practitioner of 18 years, Amie Skilton’s view of root cause medicine was forever altered as a result of an environmentally acquired illness.

In 2017, after developing CIRS herself, she discovered the world of building biology and the various ways in which the built environment has a profound impact on human health. She realized her naturopathic, nutritional and herbal toolkit were only as useful as her environment was healthy.

She’s now on a mission to raise awareness in the public arena, and educate practitioners, on a commonly overlooked but monumentally significant influence on health and wellbeing.
