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.
