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.

Why look outside ourselves to control chaos? Pete Evans, the producer of the award-winning documentary film “The Magic Pill,” suggests that we have more power than we may realize to effect change.

Today, he gives us an overview of what's happening and what we can do about it during these challenging times. He connects the dots behind the COVID crackdown in Australia and offers insights on the benefits of changing our diet and doing individual internal work. Finally, he reminds us that each of us can come up with our own personal recipe for a “delicious life!"
