What can we do to ensure we're getting the most essential vitamins and minerals in our diet each day? Chris Masterjohn has a PhD in nutritional sciences and, today, he helps us get clarity on how to go about it.

 

Right off the bat, he recommends turning to food first. He highlights the benefits of liver (especially for women) and the importance of DHA and arachidonic acid for gut health, to resolve skin issues and improve neurological function, in addition to avoiding off omega-3 and omega-6 deficiencies.

 

He also offers his own personal recipe for a perfect whole-food "multi-vitamin." In short, he equips us with a better idea of what our bodies need and how to provide for them.

Herbs are the undervalued helpers in our diets. Sure, they spice up our foods and beverages, but they also play a role in supporting digestion, mood, and healthy immune system function. Jenny McGruther helps us explore their role in the diet and in our health. Jenny is a nutritional therapist, herbalist and the author of three natural foods cookbooks: The Nourished Kitchen, Broth and Stock, and Vibrant Botanicals, her latest cookbook which features culinary and medicinal herbs.

 

Jenny tells the story of how her own struggle with anxiety led her down the path to explore the world of culinary and therapeutic herbs. She explains how herbs have different vital properties (some stimulate, some relax us, for example) and how understanding these properties can help us choose the herbs that might be the most beneficial for our bodies. She gets specific about herbs that help the body handle stress, like astragalus, and offers advice about which herbs to start including in the diet.

What are the consequences of this worldwide vaccination mobilization? Dr. Larry Palevsky, a NYS-licensed pediatrician and a past president of the American Holistic Medical Association, offers words of warning on today's podcast. First, he says that the COVID-19 injections are not necessarily vaccines, as we understand them, but rather an mRNA technology (on which there is no safety data).

 

He also expresses concern about the lipid nanoparticles they contain--that have been shown to cause damage to reproductive systems, the brain, liver, kidney, and heart. He discusses the censorship of treatments that have shown promise and why he believes such treatments have been pushed aside.

 

Finally, he sheds light on the big picture--where we're headed and why we need to turn around, before we hit the point of no return.

For the last few decades, the government has been telling us what to eat and what not to eat. Somehow their advice to eat low-fat, limit cholesterol, avoid red meat, and the like hasn’t done us any favors. We are less healthy as a populace than ever before. These principles have unfortunately led us in the wrong direction. Sally Fallon Morell is the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the author of “Nourishing Traditions,” “Nourishing Broth,” “Nourishing Diets” and more. Sally understands what it takes to nourish people well. The secret lies in returning to ancestral traditions.

 

Today, Sally contrasts the government's guidelines with timeless traditions. Sally debunks the erroneous advice with ancestral wisdom and science to back it up. She reminds us how to maximize nutrients like our ancestors did to return to and maintain excellent health.

Plant-based, Paleo, Vegan, Keto, Raw — there are so many health trends and fad diets out there! What advice do you take? What diet actually nourishes us the best? And which has stood the test of time? Sally Fallon Morell, the President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, offers clarity as she focuses on the timeless key principles of healthy traditional diets. Indigenous peoples all over the world have dietary and lifestyle customs that served them well for thousands of years. As Weston A. Price noted in the 1930s and 1940s, these traditions enabled them to maintain vibrant health, something we are desperately seeking today.

 

Sally kicks things off with a look at the common characteristics of the diets of isolated people groups worldwide—that included nutrient-dense foods, ferments, no refined or denatured foods of any kind. She helps us figure out how we can include more of these foods in our diets today. She goes over which fats are healthiest and discusses the dangerous trend of meat-less meats and avoiding animal products altogether.

There are still people on the earth in perfect health--who don't know what a headache is, who don’t experience insomnia, period pain, depression, or anxiety. Dr. Mary Ruddick is traveling the globe to find them and learn from their traditional health ways, to see how we might apply the protective mechanisms to our own health.

Today, she tells stories related to her travels throughout Africa, the Blue Zones, and remote regions of the world. She discusses her observations, both from traditions kept and others, lost. She also tells her own health journey and how the work of WAPF and the GAPS diet helped her recover after years of being bedridden. Finally she tells us about a project she is putting into place to help children stick close to their ancestral diets.

Glyphosate residues are in our food, air, and water. How can we combat this carcinogenic toxin? And could it be contributing to our current global health crisis? Dr. Stephanie Seneff, an MIT scientist, has been studying the effects of glyphosate for decades. Today, she highlights glyphosate’s role in respiratory illnesses (including COVID), how its presence in bio-fuels is contaminating our air, and what a glyphosate map overlaid with COVID cases reveals.

Stephanie also talks about what we can do to lessen glyphosate's effects on us – from Epsom salt baths to nutrient-dense foods, to sunlight and grounding. She also offers an idea for an overall solution for preventing glyphosate contamination.

Can we benefit from drinking seawater? Water expert Robert Slovak says "Yes!" Robert is a mechanical, aeronautical, and astronautical engineer best known for his decades of research, exploring a variety of waters: hydrogen-rich water, deuterium depleted water (DDW), and seawater.

Today, Robert focuses on seawater, a world-famous medicine, hidden in plain sight. For most of the twentieth century, seawater was considered a medicine. It was even imported and used to treat tuberculosis in children’s hospitals in the USA.

Robert makes a case for including seawater in our diets today, because of its mineral-rich composition, noting that it is the only aqueous solution that contains the entire periodic table! Robert explains how to get the therapeutic benefits: he covers the amount we should drink, and where it should be sourced.

When doctors are stymied by a patient's case, they often label the patient "difficult." What can you do when that label has been put on you? Dr. Cynthia Li, author of “Brave New Medicine,” understands where you're coming from. Because it happened to her, too. A functional medicine physician, she once was labeled "difficult" while dealing with a debilitating auto-immune condition.

Today, she describes her own personal journey to health, and how she had to shift her paradigm from one of relying on external authorities and rationality, to moving toward embracing intuition, instinct, and ancestral wisdom. She discusses the importance of “not trying harder but trying differently.” And how, for her, true healing came as she pursued connecting with herself on a profound level.

Is there any "up" side to all that's happened this past year? What lessons have we learned along the way? Joel Salatin, the man behind Polyface Farms in Swoope, VA, is an author, speaker, and a leader in the regenerative farming movement. Today he dares to suggest that we examine what has happened and our role in it.

What are we doing to nurture good health? What has been the impact of the restrictions, locally and globally? And what can we expect next? Joel asks important questions and offers common-sense advice on where to go from here.

We are movement-deficient in this era of conveniences as close as the click of a mouse or a word to Alexa. Author and speaker Katy Bowman of “Move your DNA” and “Grow Wild”  offers insights on how we got this way and what we can do to reverse the trend. She suggests that we make small environmental changes (like limiting screen time, switching positions when we are on our computers, and more) that can help each of us integrate more movement into our lives. She also makes a strong case for diversity of movement, and she explains how that nourishes our body in ways we might not have expected.

Many people around the world are getting COVID injections. But many are also disinclined to do so. Christian Elliot is a personal trainer, and life and health coach and his recent blog post entitled “18 Reasons I Won’t Be Getting a COVID Vaccine” has gone viral. It's very well-referenced and fact-based.

Today, Christian explains why he wrote this blog and he gives us his top reasons for not getting the jab – including the fact that all three major vaccine candidates cause blood clots, that Fauci himself has admitted that vaccines do not stop transmission or infection, and that there are a large number of adverse vaccine reactions and deaths that are going unreported.

We’ve been told that there is no treatment, prevention or cure for COVID-19. But some successful protocols that have helped COVID patients have been hidden away. Why is that? Dr. David Brownstein is a board-certified family physician and the Medical Director of the Center for Holistic Medicine in Michigan. He is also the author of "A Holistic Approach to Viruses".

Today he shares with us the exact protocols he's used with his patients over the past 28 years to support immune function and effectively fight all kinds of viruses, including SARS CoV2. He explains what he did when governmental censorship tried to quiet his results during the height of the pandemic. In this conversation, he reminds us that we have options when it comes to safeguarding our health and offers hope for the future.

Mask mandates, contact tracing, and looming vaccine passports have caused many to grow concerned and confused. What are our rights? What can we expect in terms of mandates to come and how will they affect our freedom? Leslie Manookian, the founder of the Health Freedom Defense Fund, speaks to this global crisis. She covers a variety of topics in our conversation from what to do if your job requires vaccination to how to navigate relationships where the unvaccinated are perceived as a danger.

She discusses what we can expect if we decide to take the injection, in the short-term and the long-term. And she goes over the authoritarian measures used in many communities around the world to get the populace to comply including mind control, and medical apartheid. Finally she explains what she believes to be our only hope to survive in these times.

What "life skills" do our children need to be able to navigate successfully in this world of ours? Leigh Merinoff, of Meadows Bee Farm in Vermont, is empowering children to explore their role in the wonders of regenerative farming, food production, herbal medicine and the traditional farm arts. Through her Meadows Bee Young Farmers Program, children learn how to milk & care for cows, how to tend sheep, grow food, sew, prepare ferments, and more.

Unethical patient care. Families separated needlessly from loved ones. A rejection of treatment that could be life-saving. Frontline nurses speak out today about what they've witnessed first-hand in the health care system during this time of COVID. Global Frontline Nurses Erin, Olga, and Nicole discuss the medical malpractice and corruption that motivated them to raise their voices and risk professional ridicule and public criticism. They each became a whistleblower, concerned about ethics violations that included: scuttling of patients’ rights, families’ rights, and proper medical care. They discuss today the problem of financial incentives that are diametrically opposed to proper patient care, the rejection of treatments for COVID like the IMS ivermectin protocol, and more. What they share points to some serious cover-ups related to the truth about COVID in hospitals and care facilities. And the nurses’ bravery, speaking out against unethical treatment, is a call to all of us, whatever our profession, to use best practices and ethics and to ask important questions, even in the face of opposition and at great personal risk.

What are our current restrictions – masks, lockdowns, social distancing, and more – doing to our children? What does the future hold for them? Will there be mandatory testing and vaccination? What are the physical, social, and psychological ramifications of the world's response to this "pandemic" on children? Mary Holland, the President and General Counsel for Children’s Health Defense, explores the fall-out for our children from the "new normal” so far. She discusses the stated plan to not only test our children for the SARS-CoV-2 virus but to eventually vaccinate them as well. She discusses problems with both the testing and the injections. And she cites steps we can take to better inform ourselves and protect our children in the days to come.

The food on your plate came from somewhere. Do you know its story? What about the story of the people who prepared it? Or those who first foraged for it in your area? Today, Sean Sherman, the author of The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen cookbook, calls us to open our eyes to what’s behind our food, and who.

He discusses the wonders of local fruits, vegetables, and herbs first cultivated and eaten by indigenous people. He also explains why lawns are stupid, the importance of food awareness, and how to grow in food sovereignty. He shares his hopes for the latter and talks about what he and his team are doing about it: they are currently preparing 10,000 meals per week for communities in the Minneapolis area. And they have bigger dreams still: imagine fields and forests planted with native fruits, vegetables, and herbs for everyone to enjoy. This is Sean's vision for the future of indigenous tribes, as well as people around the globe.

Why is there an avoidance of scientific debate on the topic of injections? What are the consequences of the singular paradigm of modern science and medicine? Why does it seem certain topics are taboo? How can we gather information despite the censorship? Dr. Leland Stillman helps us take a hard look at what's happening in science and medicine today. He reminds us of the importance of posing questions since our very life and health depend upon the answers.

Today, he also examines why opinions that differ from the mainstream are ignored or discredited. He reviews how this leads to the growing movement to force medical interventions on the public. He offers insights about ancient healing modalities for improved health and shares ideas for practical steps we can take to safeguard our health.

Does "healthy" food have to be hard to swallow? Nick Barnard, the author of Eat Right, offers ideas for how to re-connect with the savory pleasure of nourishing food. He recommends respecting our food, infusing its preparation with love, and relishing the subsequent satisfaction it brings. He suggests that following traditional food preparation methods (like soaking nuts, and making fermented foods) deepens our appreciation of food that isn't necessarily particularly "convenient" or "fast." Nick offers insights on how to shift our relationship to food and "fall in love" with the good stuff all over again.

Are you eager to hear something other than the mainstream narrative related to this “pandemic”? Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, brings some welcome alternative information that you won't hear in the usual places. She puts numbers into context and offers some points of optimism amid the widespread COVID fear. 

She offers insights on what vitamins help build robust lung health (vitamin K) and why it's best to get vitamin D from food sources (as opposed to supplements). In this review of the recent wise traditions journal, Sally covers a few other topics as well: the nourishment from encocados (a coconut stew from Ecuador) and her own theory on why and how the COVID sickness is spreading.

James Nestor, the NY Times bestselling author of Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, suggests that humans are the “worst breathers in the animal kingdom.” Most of us breathe through our mouths, and when we do so, we “short circuit” the systems in our body and our overall energy. Today, James explains why he believes we should train ourselves to go back to nasal breathing. He goes over the benefits we can expect when we do so: from improved sleep and lower blood pressure to improved athletic performance.
