For decades we've been told to put on sunscreen, wear sunglasses, and avoid the mid-day sun. But what if this advice is actually the OPPOSITE of what we should do? Matt Maruca, of Ra Optics, says we need to discard this paradigm and embrace the sun! He explains that sunlight is critical for optimal cellular function. He calls sunlight “the greatest multivitamin ever,” since each wavelength of the sun’s rays benefits the body.
On this podcast, Matt tells his story of how he got into exploring the benefits of the sun in the first place (hint: he suffered from headaches, allergies, gut issues, and more), and he dives into exactly how sunlight helps our bodies work optimally. He also describes his "Light Diet" and offers simple steps we can take to avoid junk light and soak up the sun.

Is sugar the main culprit for dental decay and other issues? Dentist Marc DiNola suggests that a host of dental problems could be caused by nutritional deficiencies. He offers advice for what foods to eat to rectify the situation -- including Gouda cheese, organ meats, and fat from pastured animals. He explains how foods rich in vitamin K can keep teeth strong with the proper fluid flow.
Marc also explains the concept of meridians -- connections between our teeth and particular organs and blood supply--and he offers this as one reason he is not a proponent of root canals, since the dead teeth affect the energy flow to other parts of the body.

95% of the day, our choices come from subconscious programming. This programming was put in place in the first seven years of life. And it affects everything in our lives, including our health.
Dr. Bruce Lipton, stem cell biologist and author of "The Biology of Belief" and "The Honeymoon Effect", explains how we've been programmed and how we can change that programming—especially if it's detrimental to our sense of self-esteem and self-worth. Without self-love, he reminds us, we look for someone else to “complete” us and this can lead to codependent relationships. On the flip side, when we are happy with ourselves, we attract happy, fulfilled people, which leads to a balanced healthy life. Bruce offers tips that help us focus on internal work for emotional and physical health.

What solid foods are best to introduce to baby? What are the problems with baby-led weaning? Could diet play a part in sensitivity to non-native electromagnetic frequencies? And what are the risks associated with routine colonoscopies?
Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, covers the gamut in today's conversation, as we review highlights from the spring Wise Traditions journal. We discuss issues related to bringing up baby (like their need for cholesterol and the timing of introducing nutrient-dense foods), along with ideas for all ages – like steps to take to mitigate the effects of EMFs and the importance of the local farm for feeding the world.
