373: Detox From The Shot And Shedding
Have you gotten the COVID-19 shot? Or are you someone who is concerned about shedding? Today's podcast offers some glimmers of hope and practical suggestions for both situations. Dr. Louisa Williams is the author of "Radical Medicine," and she is a specialist in environmental medicine and detoxification. Today, she offers advice on how to detox from the COVID-19 shot and from shedding, if you have not gotten the injection yourself. She recommends the use of activated charcoal for both, in light of its history as an antidote to poison. She goes into detail about the problem with graphene oxide (a metal found in the shots that is very damaging to the body) and how it interacts with 4G and 5G radiation. Louisa offers insights to inform and guide us, based on her practice and personal experience. Visit Louisa's website here: louisawilliamsnd.com Become a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

371: Beyond Organic
Do you ever wish we could go back to a time when farmers really cared about their animals and land...and neighbors? Amish farmers Leon and Junior remind us that the time is now, as they describe their vision for farming that goes beyond "organic." Leon Wengerd is the CEO of Green Field Farms and Raymond Yoder (who goes by Junior) is the production manager. Green Field Farms is a certified organic farm coop in Ohio. Together, they explain how ethical agriculture has historically been a part of the Amish culture and how they are continuing those traditions today. They get specific, from the ground up, discussing soil health and what they do to ensure that it is abundant in minerals to provide the most nutrient-rich produce possible. They emphasize old-fashioned growing methods, knowing the cows by name, and most importantly, how they care for their neighbors (as demonstrated in a recent barn-raising). It's a conversation that highlights the healthy, "beyond organic" options that are available in every facet of our lives.

370: Germ Theory V. Natural Law
Since grade school, most of us have been taught germ theory so consistently that we may have forgotten that it is a theory in the first place. Today, Marcy Cravat, the producer of the documentary "Terrain" challenges our presumptions. She contrasts germ theory with natural law (or what some call terrain theory). And she explains how these drastically different approaches shape our understanding of the world and our own health. Marcy differentiates between the two - exploring a number of related subjects including contagion and resonance, and the pleomorphic cycle of healing. Along the way, she celebrates the intrinsic wisdom of our bodies to bring us back to balance and health. Visit her website terrainthefilm.com. Get the FREE WAPF info pack here.

369: Is It About Public Health Or Power And Control?
Worldwide restrictions (like lockdowns and mask mandates) are not supported by science, proving their efficacy. And the objective does not appear to be to restore the public health, anyway, but rather to gain power and control over the population, at large. Leslie Manookian, the President and Founder of the Health Freedom Defense Fund, offers insights about what's going on related to the "pandemic." Leslie's group was the one behind the case in Florida that overturned mask mandates on public transportation. She explains how they won that case and what she expects down the line. She offers historical context on the infringement of freedoms in the U.S. in particular. She goes over the science (and the lack, thereof) supporting masks and other precautionary measures. And she explains what the recently released Pfizer documents reveal about what this vaccine company knew and knowingly hid from the public. In sum, Leslie offers a compelling case for questioning the mainstream narrative on what's going on, and what to do to protect our freedoms and autonomy in the future.

364: Your Life Is Your Medicine
If your life was given to you in a line up, would you pay for it? Would you buy it, exactly as you're living it? If not, it may be time to explore what has to change. Dr. Cassie Huckaby is a Naturopathic Physician and founder of Grit Natural Medicine. Today, Cassie invites us to explore how our very lives are our medicine--for our good or to our detriment. And to begin to recognize our own intrinsic power to heal. Cassie lifts up the power of the human spirit to bring about changes. She explains how our belief system affects our health, and how what is called the “placebo” effect can be used to our benefit for healing. She reminds us that our bodies are on our side---not trying to sabotage us. And that illness or injury may be one way that they communicate to us. Cassie also speaks to us from her own experience of healing and what she has witnessed with her patients. She calls us to get curious and courageous to explore our full healing potential.

363: Mental Health: EFT (Tapping)
Emotional Freedom Technique (known as EFT or tapping) is a simple, non-invasive healing technique that moves energy in the body. It has been used to great effect to relieve anxiety, PTSD, improve sports performance, and more. EFT practitioner Bev Nerenberg helps us understand what it is, how it works, and how to get started tapping. Bev has been tapping for decades now. She explains how it can help alleviate emotional and physical issues through a gentle tapping procedure, using the body’s meridian system. She tells the story of how she first came across EFT (what she calls "acupuncture without the needles") and how effective it was at helping her deal with anger and other issues.

362: Mental Health: Shadow Work
Shadow work is the process of exploring the hidden side of yourself. In the work, you learn to let go of facades and ways of relating that are disempowering. Today, Dr. Kelly Brogan invites us to lean into the challenges and enjoy the freedom and growth that can result from increased self-awareness. Kelly is a holistic psychiatrist, the author of A Mind of Your Own and Own Your Self, and the founder of the online healing program Vital Mind Reset. She points out that shadow work helps us break old patterns and to discover what it feels like to really live--feeling our feelings, facing fear, and exploring parts of ourselves that we have either ignored or resisted. She suggests that we begin with curiosity about ourselves, rather than self-judgment or condemnation. She reminds us that at times we may feel like we're actually dying as we sit with uncomfortable feelings. She describes the process as a spiral path of learning, where we revisit lessons throughout our lives. Finally, Kelly reminds us that this work can result in a life characterized by greater joy and overflowing vitality.

361: Mental Health: Connection To Diet
What does breakfast have to do with mental health? A good deal, according to Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Sally covers today the role nutrition plays in our wellbeing. Nutrient deficiencies can easily lead to mental instability. Sally reviews the nutrients needed for healthy brain and cellular function, like cholesterol and saturated fats. She explains how animal fats work synergistically in the body to create our own cannabinoids, chemicals that regulate reward pathways and increase dopamine release. She helps us understand what to put on the table and what to avoid. Bone broth is in, for example; MSG, soy, and GMOs are out. Basically, she helps us understand how to build a nutrient-dense foundation for good mental and physical health. Visit Sally's blog: nourishingtraditions.com Join the Weston A.

359: Mental Health: Overmedicated
A waitress takes meds for her insomnia. Then she can't get off of them. An Iraq war veteran suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and takes a variety of meds for over 12 years. A teenager with an eating disorder is prescribed anti-depressants that lead to hallucinations. Each of their stories was featured in the documentary "Medicating Normal." And, today, producer Wendy Ractliffe and Angie Peacock, a veteran who is now a mental health reform advocate, explain why they were involved in the making of the movie and what they think is an often-overlooked issue in mental health circles: how we are over-medicating those suffering with mental health conditions. They cover why so many meds are prescribed (and, yes, overprescribed). They discuss the fallout from side effects and when meds might absolutely be the right choice. They talk about what comes with tapering off from certain meds. And they offer recommendations for how to handle mental health issues differently.

Racing thoughts? Chronic stress? Physical dis-ease? Most of us turn to distractions to avoid the pain and discomfort of anxiety and stressors.

His protocols include nutrition, movement, meditation and a number of lifestyle practices. Today, Greg emphasizes the importance of allowing ourselves to actually experience our emotions instead of tamping them down.

Anna is a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine. Her new book is Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence. Anna expounds on what happens in the brain and the body when we become addicted to a chemical substance or something virtual. She explains how intense digital addictions can be.

355: Lessons from (Ab)original People
There is a wisdom in ancient health and lifestyle traditions that has unfortunately been cast aside, leading to deterioration in the overall wellbeing of many aboriginal communities. Dr. Kama Mico, Co-founder of Under the Shade, has been exploring root causes of health crises in a number of indigenous people groups. Today, Kama shares what she’s witnessed first-hand among the indigenous people of Elcho Island -- an embracing of overly-processed, "modern" food ways that has made them sicker. Many of us all over the world have also adopted these changes to our detriment. Kama reminds us that we can all return to more natural dietary choices -- eating food from nature, instead of food from factories, for example -- to reclaim our health and vitality. And she shares stories and lessons learned from the (ab)original peoples that can help us live our most vibrant lives today, wherever we are.
