Season 3 dives into herbalism, spices, nutrition and simple recipes that incorporate plants in all their forms. We discover how to create a first-aid kit with plants, herbal oils and essential oils. In addition, we learn how to manage our discomforts by reaping the full benefits of plants and of nature. The goal of this series is to simplify health matters, to bring warmth and comfort, and to fuel our wish to understand the ways in which each person is unique, and how we can take care of our health, one step at a time.
Joined by her new co-host France Gauthier, Krystine St-Laurent shows new methods of maintaining our health and our vitality by exploring Ayurveda (the medicinal branch of yoga), aromatic plants, self-massage (Abhyanga), herb-infused oils and essential oils. Krystine and France approach health matters from different angles, to present their viewers with a holistic approach to health and wellness. In so doing, France and Krystine meet speakers and panelists who are part of the team at the Monastère des Augustines de Québec.
Krystine St-Laurent welcomes us in and starts the show with diverse co-hosts and collaborators (François Lemay for season 1, France Gauthier for season 2, and Imane Lahlou for season 3). Together, they inform and educate their viewers about easy, simple and efficient ways to maintain optimal health and a sense of wellbeing & vitality. The objective is to inspire us to take personal charge of our health in all aspects. Krystine St-Laurent also redefines the balance between conventional and natural health.
