Every day there’s a trendy new “health” product, practice or idea to act on, most of them targeting women. To help cut through the sea of claims around a never-ending parade of wellness-related pitches, we talk to Dr. Genevieve Brauning of Novant Health about several products her patients ask about daily.  

Dr. Genevieve Brauning

In this Healthy Headlines podcast, she’ll talk about:

  • The possible benefits of float spa therapy that also comes with a warning for women who color their hair.
  • The barrage of charcoal-infused beauty and health products and whether you should consider using them.
  • “I get asked about CBD oil by patients at least twice a day.” Find out what she tells them.

And she’s not just commenting from the sidelines. When we asked her about float therapy spas, she explained she’d checked them out herself.  One more takeaway from this conversation: her advice about what to do while in the checkout line at the grocery store.
