How can we hold onto joy in a world that is so challenging? How can we keep the openness and curiosity of a child? Alyson Earl believes that connecting to nature is a great first step. Alyson is the executive director of the Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education. At the Horn Center, she is creating space of wonder, a place for wonder, and connection to the land and ourselves. She and her team are raising up a new generation of farmers and gardeners, helping people reconnect with the importance of soil health, biodiversity, and mutually beneficial relationships.

Among other things, in today’s conversation, Alyson discusses regenerative agriculture, the need for us to become producers (not merely consumers) and how we can hold onto hope as look at our lives and the land differently.

Are you gluten intolerant? Sensitive to wheat? Have you eliminated grains from your diet altogether? Bob Quinn, a leader in organic and sustainable agriculture, and the author of “Grain by Grain,” suggests that you may be able to include grains in your life once again. He has been cultivating an ancient grain known as “kamut” and he has found that it is much more digestible and beneficial than most hybridized modern wheat.

Bob recognizes that modern wheat is very inflammatory, so he offers suggestions to those who are willing to give ancient grains a try. He also advocates for fermented grains to make the nutrients more bio-available to our bodies. Not only does he bring his wisdom to bear in terms of the wheat we can eat, but he also explains why it is critica for us to pay more attention to what the food industry is doing to farming and our health.

For the health conscious, choosing a wine can be problematic. Are there "clean" wines for those who like to eat "clean?" What difference does alcohol content make? How do we decide between "natural" and "organic" wines? How can we avoid additives? Which are the best brands? Is it smart to even drink alcohol in the first place, when you are pursuing a healthy lifestyle?

 

With 15 years of experience in the wine industry, Todd White, the founder of Dry Farm Wines, educates us about the wine industry, while answering these questions. He shares the industry's dirty little secrets related to labeling, alcohol content, and what's really put into the products. He explains that the label "organic," for example, does not necessarily mean that the wine is additive-free. He goes over which additives cause headaches and are actually toxic to our bodies. And he offers suggestions for how healthy people can choose the best wine.

If you’ve ever reached for a cup of coffee or sugary snack to get through the day, this episode is for you. Many of us turn to caffeine or sugar to push through the initial stages of fatigue. And it’s no wonder why. The average person today has 100 times the stressors of people who lived one hundred years ago. We are constantly in fight or flight mode and this takes a toll on our health.

Today, Dr. Timothy Weeks, a holistic chiropractor explains the science behind what’s going on in our bodies and he has concrete suggestions for how to better manage our stress. He believes stress is at the root of all of our disease in the modern world. He suggests looking at the elements--earth, air, water, and fire--for clues on building resilience and cultivating optimal health.

What evidence is there that EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are harmful? And how should we respond to 5G technology being rolled out into most major cities? Brandon LaGreca, author of “Cancer and EMF Radiation,” answers these questions and more in part two of this podcast series.

Today, Brandon kicks things off by explaining his own cancer diagnosis and how he chose to address it. Then he goes deep into the corroborating lines of evidence that show the risk EMFs pose to our health: epidemiological and experimental studies, mechanisms at play, and animal studies. He also offers insights about what to do to defend ourselves in light of the growing exposure to radiation, and he gives us advice about how to nurture health and build resilience across the board.
