Our ancestors, worldwide, hold the key to healthy eating. It’s called “nutrient density.” Basically, they knew how to get the most out of each bite because they learned it from their parents, who learned it from their parents, and so on. Traditional indigenous diets worldwide were much more nutrient-dense than ours today: they were high in a variety of nutrients and replete with the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K.

In this conversation, Sally Fallon Morell, the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, goes into detail about why this is and how we can eat a more nutrient-dense diet today. She explains the essential role of vitamins A, D, and K in fertility, boosting mood, improving dental health and more. She describes what foods contain them in just the right proportions, including butter and raw cheeses. She reminds us of the benefits of organ meats. And she gives practical suggestions for simple ways to include foods in the diet that will give all of us the most bang for our buck, health-wise.

Most of our lives we've been told to avoid spreading or catching germs, in order to not get sick or make someone else ill. But what if we've misunderstood the role of germs in our body? What if germs do not actually cause disease?

Today, Dr. Andy Kaufman, molecular biologist and psychiatrist, helps us wrap our heads around germ theory and contrasts it with terrain theory. He defines both and clarifies how our modern medical system is largely based on the former. He also gives his take on the coronavirus and offers some surprising ideas about how to nurture health. It's a deep dive on the true manifestation of disease that is especially important at this time.

Egg yolks are in; breakfast cereals are out. Raw milk is nature’s perfect food. Vaccines include ingredients that pose a risk to our health & information on this topic is subject to censorship. Nutrition support is available for those who struggle with substance abuse.

Sally Fallon Morell, the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, reviews the quarterly Wise Traditions winter journal, expounding on a variety of topics with quite a different perspective than you’ll find most anywhere. Today, among other things, she explains how the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous once wanted to offer nutritional counseling at AA meetings. She reviews what foods especially can help those struggling with substance abuse, including egg yolks and bone broth. She goes into why the media doesn’t cover much in the way of vaccination risks. And she reviews why raw milk is so beneficial and why the China Study got it wrong.

Many of us have been told to "take a deep breath," when we're agitated. We know that it's a tool to help us calm down, but what is the physiology behind it? Today, Josh Trent, Founder of Wellness Force and expert in physical and emotional intelligence, helps us explore the benefits of breathwork, including stress relief. 

Breathwork goes beyond one deep breath, of course. Josh gives us an overview of the benefits of a variety of breath phases: from wellness to cathartic breathing. He discusses studies that point to decreased anxiety and increased serotonin. In essence, breathwork gives our bodies a "permission slip" to relax that we desperately need in this day and age. And he walks us through a breathing exercise so we can get a taste of what it feels like to control our breath and release our stress.
