Meat and poultry shortages. Skyrocketing prices on eggs. Scarcity of dairy products on supermarket shelves. The last few years (and months) have revealed how fragile the food infrastructure is in the United States. What options do we have to help us secure good food, from reliable sources? Judith McGeary, the founder of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, offers insights on our options. Today she sheds light on how to protect the small farmer for the benefit of our communities, and our health.
She covers the importance of purchasing from local farmers with regenerative farming practices. She discusses how governmental regulations favor industrial large-scale farming and how we can contact policymakers to make farming more accessible and less expensive for the small farmer. In sum, she offers practical steps we can take to make a healthier future, in every sense of the word, for all of us.

Our subconscious mind knows exactly what is wrong with us and what we really need to thrive. And connecting with it has the potential to help us release emotional baggage and enjoy new levels of health.

He tells stories of patients with undiagnosed or unsolvable health concerns that he was able to identify and help resolve by using his method of tapping into the subconscious mind. It's a simple approach that anyone can use and he explains how to go about it. He also discusses the role of spirituality in the healing process. All in all, he offers simple and practical ideas for how to activate our own body's innate healing power.

What does the Mongolian diet look like? What characterizes their lifestyle, and what changes might their choices make in my life? These are questions addressed by Mary Ruddick, the nutritionist known as the "Sherlock Holmes of Health" on today's episode.
She was recently in Mongolia for an extended period. She observed the elements of the traditional Mongolian diet, its extraordinarily high-fat content, its shifts with the seasons, the similarities between the Mongolian and Maasai dietary patterns, and more. She describes her experiences with Eagle Hunters in a remote country region, and why she is convinced the Mongolians were uniquely prepared by their diet and lifestyle to expand their empire.
She also offers insights into how their probiotic-rich foods and tight-knit community have served them well over the centuries. And how they can do the same for us wherever we live!
