3:10 The dark side of the wellness world

Rina Raphael spent hundreds of dollars a month on boutique fitness classes and 'natural medications' to escape stress and to release stress. She fully drank the kombucha. She says wellness brands prey on women's anxieties. Her new book looks at why women buy into the multi-billion dollar industry and why the cure has in many ways become as bad as the disease. It's called The Gospel of Wellness: Gyms, Gurus, Goop, and the False Promise of Self-Care.
