Beauty Inside Out podcast Image #127

In this episode, Tony and I are going to talk about an interesting topic that has become somewhat of a health trend, and that is- activated charcoal. Have you heard of it? It being marketed as the ultimate panacea and detoxifier, praised for its ability to absorb toxins of all kinds and help our digestive system rebalance. But the truth is, the research around activated charcoal is much more mixed—with little conclusive evidence that charcoal does everything it’s touted to do. Listen in, as we crack open the truths behind this trend.

Next, we have my very special friend and guest Deepak Chopra, MD, who is my co-author on Radical Beauty and was named by Time Magazine as one of the most iconic thinkers of the century.  Listen in as we discuss one of the pillars from Radical Beauty, that is critical for long-term health.


  • Tony shares some interesting facts about how long research has been going on with regards to activated charcoal on humans and the results…
  • We discuss the importance of being mindful of new trends and thoroughly doing your research…
  • How activated charcoal could be taking away healthy nutrients along with the bad toxins, and if it’s a product we should rely on…
  • Deepak discusses Pillar Three in our Radical Beauty book regarding the importance of sleep…
  • We discuss the different stages of sleep and how they are connected to the four rhythms of the universe…
  • How our body cleanses and repairs itself during our sleeping hours…
  • We share how the quality of your sleep depends on the quality of your day and ways to improve it…
  • Ways to manage stress and improve your sleeping patterns…
  • Deepak explains your innermost being and how to be authentic…
