As time passes and humanity develops new technologies, we would expect new generations to be healthier and live longer. Sadly, the opposite is true for children in the United States: our children are overweight, sick, and getting sicker. Developmental issues are common. As a matter of fact, this is the first time in history when children are expected to have shorter life spans than their parents. What an alarming situation! How did this happen? And what can we do to reverse this trend of sickness and disability?

On today's episode, author and speaker Dr. Tim O’Shea discusses the impact of today's technologies, like vaccines and genetically modified foods, that are damaging our immune systems, impairing neurological function, disrupting our DNA, and negatively impacting our health. He gives suggestions for helping your children not just survive, but thrive, despite these challenges. He offers concrete ideas for protecting young immune systems through diet and other natural therapies, in addition to exercising your freedom to nurture the health of your children, as you see fit.

Homeopathy has been around for over 200 years, so it is clearly a wise tradition that we need to rediscover! It is a natural, holistic way to stimulate the body's own healing ability, and it has been used in ancient cultures worldwide!

In today's episode, Paola Brown, the President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice, explains homeopathy in detail and elaborates on why it is a powerful healing tool. She also discusses what the FDA is doing that is jeopardizing the future of homeopathy in the U.S. The FDA regulates homeopathy and things have gone smoothly for the past 30 years. Now, it wants to withdraw its Compliance Policy Guide which could upend the industry and cause mistakes that could throw into question homeopathy's efficacy and reputation.

This episode will help you gain a better understanding of homeopathy, and will make clear the importance of defending our right to it today, as a vanguard of our health rights in the future.

A lot of people think being healthy means having a meat-free diet. Dietician Diana Rodgers goes to bat for why meat--even red meat--should be a part of a healthy diet. Her plan is to make the environmental, nutritional, and ethical case for better meat via a documentary that is now in pre-production. The working title of the movie is "Kale vs. Cow."

Diana knows what she's talking about. She struggled as a child with many health issues which is what led her to become a nutritionist, NTP, LDN, and dietician. She is convinced that real, organic, sustainable food is the key to good health. She lives on a working organic farm near Boston and is a supporter of the grass-fed movement. She cares deeply about improving the lives of animals raised for consumption and protecting our environment. And this is something both vegans and meat-eaters can agree on.

On today's episode, Diana shares her personal journey and the reasons behind her decision to produce the "Kale vs cow" documentary and buck conventional thinking about what constitutes a healthy diet.

As a young man, Brian Richards had a laundry list of health issues: mind-racing, insomnia, acne, adrenal fatigue, and more. Doctors wanted to give him Accutane and other pharmaceutical drugs to manage his symptoms, but he wanted to get to the source of the problem. He realized that the reason for cellular degradation is our environmental toxic exposure on a variety of levels—chemical, electro-magnetic, emotional, etc. He sought a natural detox solution and his research led him to the conclusion that passive sweating is one of the best ways to detox the body. He decided to build his own sauna to provide that full-body thermal light therapy for himself.

In today’s episode, Brian shares his own story and how it led to him establishing the SaunaSpace company. He also tells stories of those who have benefited from this therapy, along with the science behind why saunas work: how near-infrared incandescent light exposure stimulates the cells so that they can repair themselves, and allows the body to detox.

For more on the science behind near-infrared light/heat therapy and for information on Brian's company, visit SaunaSpace.com.
