Appropriate nutrition can enhance fertility. Specifically, vitamin A has a critical role to play in reproductive health. Its presence in the body can improve the chances of conception. And its absence can impede the process.
Pam Schoenfeld, a registered dietician with a specialty on family and reproductive nutrition, today shares her experience and research for improving fertility simply by increasing vitamin A intake, as a starting point. She goes over how to recognize the signs of deficiency and how to incorporate foods that offer the best sources of vitamin A, like eggs, liver, raw milk, and fish eggs. She also gets specific about what vitamin A does for the reproductive system of both men and women and how it facilitates conception.

For most of our lives, we’ve been taught that viruses make us sick. But there is important evidence that has been overlooked by both virologists and the public. Today, Alec Zeck, the Executive Director and Founder of the Way Forward, breaks down viruses. He reviews the history of virology, the assumptions behind the science, and explains where we've gone wrong in our understanding of what causes ill health. His conclusions, based on his extensive research, paint a very different picture of the "pandemic" of recent years and offer insights for the days ahead. This is an episode that may challenge what many of us thought we knew about viruses.

What if urine isn't a waste product? Did you know that, for centuries, it was considered a "golden elixir" for healing? Amandha Vollmer today describes the history and practice of urine therapy and how it has been used as a remedy over the centuries for resolving diseases, blood clots, infections, and skin issues. Urine, we now know, actually contains stem cells---undifferentiated cells that promote healing and regeneration.
Amandha addresses why it's worth getting over the "ick" factor to apply this beneficial therapy, topically and internally.

What would it look like to eat as if our health depended on it? What would we need to change? Steve Campbell, a cattle consultant running Tailor Made Cattle, had an accident that turned his whole world upside down. He realized that to heal properly, he needed to change his diet, and this led him to look at the provenance of his food and the health of the soil.
What he has learned along the way is that what works for farmers and cattle ranchers works for human beings too: the power of epigenetics (lifestyle and dietary changes to support health), how to live "organic by design" (as opposed to by default), and how to foster an environment (on the land and in the body) that supports diversity, good health, and life.

What would it be like to live in the Brazilian Amazon for over 20 years, off grid, 18 hours away from any hospital, hardly speaking the language, while simultaneously running a cattle ranch? John Carter of Aliança Da Terra today describes the many lessons he and his wife gleaned from their time there. From the health and happiness he observed among his neighbors, the Kamayurá Indian, to the negative influence of the government and corporations that he saw unfold over the years.
Visit his website: aliancadaterra.org for more information on his team’s efforts to preserve the land, while also cultivating it.
