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.

Darryl Bosshardt, of Redmond's Real Salt, is a salt expert who has studied salt and minerals his whole life. Today, he explains what natural, well-sourced salt in the diet can do for us. He explains how salt, one of the world’s most prized foods, got its bad reputation in the first place. And he offers simple steps to ditch the fake stuff (industrialized table salt) and find the real deal that will nourish our bodies well on multiple levels.

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. Along the way, they grow in their observation skills, critical thinking and compassion for and understanding of nature. These are the kind of life skills that promise a bright future for humanity and the planet.

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.

Does a diagnosis need to "stick?” Can we challenge or change it or is our course set, according to what the doctors have told us? Victor Mifsud was given the diagnosis at the age of 9 that he had tunnel vision and a condition that was going to ruin his eyesight. He chose to challenge that idea and this set him on a journey to explore what it takes to heal the body, mind, and spirit.

On today's podcast, he shares the most helpful therapies. He talks about how to tap into the brain’s neuroplasticity (its ability to strengthen and develop new neuro-pathways). He discusses sound and somatic therapy and their role in relieving mental health issues, including PTSD. While Victor is legally blind, he reminds us that there is more to health than meets the eye.
