Worldwide restrictions (like lockdowns and mask mandates) are not supported by science, proving their efficacy. And the objective does not appear to be to restore the public health, anyway, but rather to gain power and control over the population, at large. Leslie Manookian, the President and Founder of the Health Freedom Defense Fund, offers insights about what's going on related to the "pandemic."

 

Leslie's group was the one behind the case in Florida that overturned mask mandates on public transportation. She explains how they won that case and what she expects down the line. She offers historical context on the infringement of freedoms in the U.S. in particular. She goes over the science (and the lack, thereof) supporting masks and other precautionary measures. And she explains what the recently released Pfizer documents reveal about what this vaccine company knew and knowingly hid from the public. In sum, Leslie offers a compelling case for questioning the mainstream narrative on what's going on, and what to do to protect our freedoms and autonomy in the future.

The U.S. is experiencing a nationwide baby formula shortage. What to do at such a time? When breastfeeding isn't possible, a homemade baby formula is a wonderful alternative.

Sally Fallon Morell and Mary Enig co-authored Nourishing Traditions and they also developed a recipe for homemade baby formula decades ago, which has helped innumerable babies thrive.

Today, Sally explains how they came up with this alternative and why it is preferable to commercial formulas that often contain seed oils, corn syrup, and other questionable ingredients. Sally goes over the ingredients needed to make this homemade version, explaining how each ingredient benefits the baby. She even offers alternative ingredients for babies with allergies or sensitivities.

Did you ever hold your breath when driving through a tunnel as a kid? Do you now deliberately slow down your breathing to de-stress? The less you need to breathe, the longer you live and the better your health. So says Niraj Naik, a SOMA Breath instructor, who today gives us an overview of how breathing impacts our entire body, and how mindful breathing can help heal all of our systems.

He explains what happens in the body and brain over the long-haul with a committed breathwork practice. He goes over an easy exercise to assess where we are, as a starting point, and he also offers tips for how to begin breath training for all of the benefits it holds.

What are the pros and cons of homebirth? Registered nurse Elizabeth Parsons and her husband, Noah, share their insights today. They are parents of five children, some of whom were born at the hospital and others at home. Elizabeth was a pediatric nurse for 9 years before coming home full time to empower and educate about natural alternatives for healing. 

Today, Elizabeth and Noah explain what to consider when making this birthing decision. They discuss the importance of knowing your rights and birthing options, whether you decide to labor at home or in the hospital. They also delve into the difference between midwifery and OB/GYN care, throughout pregnancy and after delivery. 

Finally, they share their own perspective on the birthing process (they much preferred their homebirth experience), along with resources for making an informed decision, and their most recent (and surprising) homebirth.

A diagnosis of lymphoma shattered Jason Contreras' world. He was only 30 years old and he was a marathon runner. Something had to change, clearly. Though it took a little time, Jason did a 180. He and his wife moved to North Carolina to start a homestead.

Today, Jason, the man behind the Sow the Land YouTube channel, tells his story, describing how receiving this diagnosis and leaving his office job has radically altered his life and health. He talks about all he learned along the way – from his biggest learning curve to the fact that labels aren't everything to his daughter who now knows how to butcher chickens! He also explains why he is healthier today than ever.

If your life was given to you in a line up, would you pay for it? Would you buy it, exactly as you're living it? If not, it may be time to explore what has to change. Dr. Cassie Huckaby is a Naturopathic Physician and founder of Grit Natural Medicine. Today, Cassie invites us to explore how our very lives are our medicine--for our good or to our detriment. And to begin to recognize our own intrinsic power to heal.

Cassie lifts up the power of the human spirit to bring about changes. She explains how our belief system affects our health, and how what is called the “placebo” effect can be used to our benefit for healing. She reminds us that our bodies are on our side---not trying to sabotage us. And that illness or injury may be one way that they communicate to us. Cassie also speaks to us from her own experience of healing and what she has witnessed with her patients. She calls us to get curious and courageous to explore our full healing potential.
