John Chester, of Apricot Lane Farms, explains on today's show how a small farm can make a BIG difference. And he challenges those of us who are not farmers to look for ways to do the same. 

He covers topics ranging from what led him and Molly to become farmers in the first place, to our need to respect the environment and livestock, to the impermanence of life, to the importance of composting, to the challenges behind establishing a farm that can regenerate soil, provide nutrient-rich food, and be sustainable and beneficial to the planet! He shares their challenges as well as the secrets to their success--that have to do primarily with the harmony and beauty of a balanced farm ecosystem.

His farm, Apricot Lane Farms, is featured in the film “The Biggest Little Farm,” now showing in theaters. You'll understand why it is so inspiring as you listen to his story.

From the time we are born, we are conditioned to sit, sleep, walk and stand in a certain way. We are directed to “sit up straight” and to stick our “chest out” when we slouch. These ideas are actually counterproductive and do not correspond with how our ancestors sat, stood, and moved. The result? Back pain, digestive issues, shoulder and neck impingement, and more. Esther Gokhale knows this firsthand. She had excruciating back pain and resorted to several surgeries before she discovered the root of the problem: poor posture. Esther is the founder of the Gokhale Method: an approach that retrains the body to adopt its natural, primal posture. Today, she walks us through what’s wrong with our alignment and how to fix it. She offers simple tweaks for improving how we sit, stand, and even sleep. And she explains why it is critical to carry ourselves properly for a strong foundation for optimal wellbeing.

Is a homebirth a viable option for mothers-to-be? Is it safe? What happens if complications arise?Katelyn Fusco answers these questions and more on today’s show. Katelyn is the host and creator of the “Happy Homebirth” podcast. She studied as a student midwife and is a home birth mother herself. She explains how home births have been historically, a wise tradition. She talks about the shift to hospital births and what’s been lost in the process. She offers insights on C-section statistics, the risks and benefits of giving birth at home, the training midwives receive, and even how to manage a more “natural” birth at a hospital.

For decades we’ve been told that fluoridation of water helps prevent cavities, but science doesn’t support that claim. As a matter of fact, fluoride is a waste product that is so toxic it is not allowed to be dumped in our landfills, and yet somehow it is routinely added to our water supply. Today, Integrative Biological Dentist Dr. Griffin Cole explains the history of water fluoridation and how this practice is negatively impacting our health. Systemic fluoride interferes with our hormone balance, the thyroid, kidneys, and more. He also explains how we can personally avoid fluoride in our diets and the water, and how to defend our rights to clean, fluoride-free water in our communities.
