We're told that GMOs can help feed the world and that they are perfectly safe to eat. And yet there is growing evidence that GMOs (genetically-modified organisms) are damaging our health.

Zen Honeycutt, the head of Moms Across America and the author of "Unstoppable," joins us today to help us understand what GMOs are and what they're doing to us. She gives us a short history of where GMOs came from and she explains their relationship to chronic illnesses and health problems (like cancer, autism, auto-immune conditions, and more). But she doesn't leave us there. She challenges us to take our health into our hands and to become advocates to lighten our toxic burden--making our families, communities, and the world a healthier place!

Many of us are able to buy quality vegetables in enough quantity to satisfy our hunger. It’s so easy we may become convinced that the world doesn’t need animal products to survive. But what about those who live in isolated places who don’t have these privileges? What about those who can’t grow a big variety of vegetables in enough quantity to have a balanced diet and keep hunger at bay? Cue the chickens. Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin makes the case in today’s episode for a poultry-centered regenerative agriculture model that has the power to shift food inequalities and cultivate health. A chicken laying eggs can make all the difference for a family on the brink of malnutrition, and quite probably bridge the gap between life and death.

Today, Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin, author and fair trade advocate, tells his own story—how chickens saved his life as a small child in Guatemala, and how he is applying this nature-centered agricultural knowledge (and knowledge of poultry, in particular) to today’s farming strategies. Learn how this chicken revolution is quietly transforming the food landscape in countries around the world.

It has helped bring relief from joint pain, asthma, vision issues, Lyme’s disease, heart conditions, digestive problems, wrinkles, and more. What is it exactly? It's emu oil, the best fat you've never heard of! Emu oil is a super food of sorts, rich in vitamins K2 and MK4. On today's episode Dr. Will Schlinsog and Dr. Sylvia Onusic explain the many benefits of emu oil. They discuss emu oil's anti-inflammatory properties, what makes it a fantastic source of vitamins K2 and MK4 (the "activator X" that Dr. Price often spoke of), and how it can be used topically and internally to improve our health. They also relate many anecdotes of people (and even animals) who have had promising responses to this unique fat.

You will certainly be intrigued about this beneficial heretofore overlooked fat. Give a listen. It may be just the thing your body needs to restore your health.

Is it important to detox before conception? Are prenatal vitamins helpful? What foods should we include in our diet, pre-conception, and when pregnant and nursing? What role does birth control play in our fertility?

In today’s episode, Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, answers all of the above and then some as we discuss Principle #11 of the Wise Traditions diet: how men and women can plan and prepare for conception with nutrient-dense foods. She tells how all traditional cultures had special diets and “sacred foods” for men and women wanting to get pregnant, and how today’s recommendations for women who want children are often misguided. Sally sets the record straight for what foods youreallyneed to eat to have a healthy pregnancy, and, in turn, healthy, happy children. Her perspective is based on the work of Dr. Weston A. Price, who travelled all around the globe in the 1930s, studying traditional food ways and the diets of the healthiest peoples.

Most of us have removed ourselves from the natural dance and cycles of nature. We see ourselves as separate from all of the other living creatures and this has a negative impact on our health. We can turn things around by reconnecting with the wild--spending time in nature, observing the ecosystem & wildlife all around us, and basking in its beauty and rhythms.

On today's episode, Doniga Markegard, regenerative rancher, naturalist, and author of “Dawn Again: Tracking the Wisdom of the Wild,” explores the topic of nature's role in our health. She challenges us to consider how each choice we make leads to either a regenerative or a degenerative lifestyle. 

Doniga tells the story of her own unconventional childhood and youth.  She goes deep and explains beautifully what it means to live a truly healthy lifestyle. Our diet--even if filled with healthy, nutrient-dense foods--is a part of it, but not the whole. Doniga walks the talk and this conversation will inspire all to live more in tune with the world around us.
