5G has become one of the most polarizing topics of 2020. A massive rollout and a related advertising campaign can make it challenging to distinguish facts from fiction. Today, Dafna Tachover, senior attorney at the Children’s Health Defense, makes clear the case against 5G. She walks us through what 5G really is and how it threatens our health. She also reveals what’s driving its rapid roll out. For the record, it is not to facilitate faster downloads, as we’ve been told.
What does healthy eating look like? Surprisingly, it may not be exactly what we've been told (e.g. a green salad or a low-fat smoothie). Our ancestors, worldwide, ate food that gave them the most "bang for their buck"--a nutrient-dense diet that bolstered their physical, mental, and emotional health. Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, helps us understand how we can eat this way today.
Most of our lives we've been told to avoid spreading or catching germs, in order to not get sick or make someone else ill. But what if we've misunderstood the role of germs in our body? What if germs do not actually cause disease? Today, Dr. Andy Kaufman, molecular biologist and psychiatrist, helps us wrap our heads around germ theory and contrasts it with terrain theory. It's a deep dive on the true manifestation of disease that is especially important at this time
Egg yolks are in; breakfast cereals are out. Raw milk is nature’s perfect food. Vaccines include ingredients that pose a risk to our health & information on this topic is subject to censorship. Nutrition support is available for those who struggle with substance abuse. Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, reviews our quarterly journal which offers a different perspective on important news.
Josh Trent, expert in physical and emotional intelligence, helps us explore the benefits of breathwork, including stress relief. Breathwork gives our bodies a "permission slip" to relax that we desperately need in this day and age. And he walks us through a breathing exercise so we can get a taste of what it feels like to control our breath and release our stress.
Is a coronavirus vaccine our best bet for protecting ourselves from the virus? We seem to be rushing headlong into not only developing one but even mandating it worldwide. Is this a good idea? Dr. Andrew Wakefield, an expert in vaccines, helps us step back and look at the big picture. He reviews why it's been problematic in the past to develop a vaccine against viruses & reveals larger forces at play that may tip the balance on medical freedom and our ability to fight disease.
Leslie Manookian, producer of "The Greater Good," gives us context on the current crisis--examining the virus, vaccines in development, and what's at stake.
Most of the world is on lock-down. Social distancing and quarantine are a way of life. Hysteria is affecting the mood and social fabric of many nations. Dr. Tedd Koren, Doctor of Chiropractic, offers reassurance that this need not become the "new normal." He explains why the virus may not justify the hype. He cites: the fact that the coronavirus has not been identified as contagious, the low death rate, the lack of proof that social distancing works, and how fear can be a tool for controlling the masses.
Veganism and vegetarianism have become the hip and “clean” way to eat, for many—particularly for young people. But what is this diet doing to our health? Throughout history, has any traditional culture deliberately chosen to forego meat in favor of a 100% plant-based diet? Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, answers these questions and more in today's conversation..
Dr. Tom Cowan challenges theories on contagion, viruses, and what's really making us sick. Tom sheds light on the issues with the study of the coronavirus and on the problems of testing using the RTPCR test. He explains how it may not be spreading for the reasons we believe. He discusses the role of air pollution and non-native electromagnetic frequencies—particularly 5G. He goes over all of the science in a logical, step-by-step fashion to help us get a grasp on how we got to where we are today.
Wash your hands. Do social distancing. Are these the only two things we can do to protect our health during this pandemic? Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms, author, and speaker, offers ideas about how to strengthen our immune system and our spirit during this time of crisis. He suggests that we cannot rely on health officials or the government to make us well. We must take our health into our own hands.
Looking for ways to support the immune system? Let's turn to vitamin A. It truly is an A-mazing vitamin that is often overlooked. Registered dietician and nutritionist Pam Schoenfeld discusses today what this vitamin can do for us, in what foods it is most bio-available (including liver) and what she has seen it do for her clients.
Sally Fallon Morell offers practical ideas for building immunity through nutrient-dense foods, such as: taking 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil per day, eating liver once per week, drinking bone broth regularly, and including saturated fat to safeguard respiratory health.
Dr. Bill Schindler explains the importance of putting a "face back on the plate." We are so disconnected from our food. Most of us think soup only comes in cans and meat comes on a styrofoam tray wrapped in plastic. It’s time to eat like humans again. Today, Bill Schindler, anthropologist, hunter, and forager, explains how to break out of the supermarket mentality. He discusses why we are so (uncomfortable with organ meats & processing animals and what we can do to turn things around.
