    Ryland Engelhart - Solutions For Healthy Soil

    This week, I'm excited to welcome Ryland Engelhart. He is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Kiss the Ground. He is also a co-creator of the award-winning, transformational documentary film, “May I Be Frank.” He is an entrepreneur and activist, and works to inspire more "gratitude" into our culture. He speaks on sacred commerce, tools for building community, and regeneration and is the host of Kiss the Ground's "We Can Do This Podcast."
    Questions asked during our conversation: How do you define regenerative vs degenerative agriculture? Is it too late to be considering sustainability? How important are animals in the soil health conversation? https://180nutrition.com.au/
    This week, I'm excited to welcome Ryland Engelhart. Ryland is an entrepreneur, a restaurateur and social activist who co-owns the super popular plant-based restaurants Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre. He's also co-founder of Kiss the Ground, a nonprofit increasing social awareness and educating millions of people about the extraordinary benefits of healthy soil. In this episode, we discuss the fundamentals of regenerative agriculture and discover what we can all do at a community level to cultivate global regeneration. Over to Ryland.
    Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Ryland Engelhart to the podcast, Ryland, how are you?
    Ryland
    00:01:50
    I'm feeling great. Thank you so much. It's been great to get to know you a little bit before we jumped in here. And yeah, grateful to share love and information. That was kind of my mom's declaration of what there was to do in life, was to share love and information. And so it's always a delight to be invited to speak on a podcast, to share with new audience about what I've learned over my life that could potentially be helpful for others.
    Stu
    00:02:23
    That is awesome. Well, that is what we are super excited about diving into today. But first up, for all of our listeners that might not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself and your background, please.
    Ryland
    00:02:35
    Okay, beautiful. So professionally over the last 15 years, I've been working within a family business, a restaurant business on the West Coast of the United States called Love Serve Remember. It is a management company that oversees two different restaurant chains. One is called Gracias Madre, which is organic plant-based Mexican food. And one is called Cafe Gratitude, which I know many Australians who have come and visited California have come to Cafe Gratitude. You guys have been a big international group that has been big fans of Cafe Gratitude. And really, yeah, we've been a family of, I would say, entrepreneurs really driving health and wellness and plant-based lifestyle.
    15 years ago when we started the Cafe Gratitude, there was no such thing in the general lexicon of understanding of what cold brewed coffee was. No one was eating kale. Quinoa was not pronounceable. And almond milk, there wasn't almond milk on the shelf. It was just a completely different time. And we had the amazing opportunity of understanding as a family. We had been vegetarian for most of our lives and really got into healthy, organic food, and wanted to provide that for people through our restaurants. But I would say the bigger mission of our restaurant company was about spreading the consciousness of gratitude and really, how do we create a public domain, a business, a commercial venture, where we invite people in to that space, and we not only nourish them with healthy food, but we actually also curate healthy or meaningful or purposeful or grateful conversations. And so really, the food was the kind of carrot to get people in the door, but really we were more after having people be centered in a grateful place.
    What we saw was when you're grateful, you ar

    Hey, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions. It’s here that we connect with the world’s best experts in health, wellness, and human performance in an attempt to cut through the confusion around what it actually takes to achieve a long lasting health.

Over to Kristan.
    Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Kristan Kershaw to the podcast. Kristan, good afternoon. So we’re kind of neighbors, I think, at the moment. You’re in Queensland now in Byron Bay. Typically, I’m calling somebody over in the states or on the other side of the world somewhere, but how are you?
    Kristan
    02:03
    I’m really good, actually. It’s a sunny, amazing day outside and I’m like, “Oh, winter’s in Queensland.”
    Stu
    02:10
    It’s not too bad, is it? Thank you so much for sharing some of your time. I know we’re going to dig deep into a couple of topics that I think will really interest our audience today. But first up, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it. If you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
    Kristan
    02:28
    Absolutely. So I’m a mom to three. And believe it or not, you won’t have caught this, I could have warned you before and I’m sorry for it, but it’s pronounced Kristan, just to throw people because you’ll hear it pronounced different ways.

He's the founder of The Four Winds Society, an organization dedicated to bridging ancient shamanistic traditions with modern medicine and psychology.

    What led you to explore shamanism? What did you learn during your time in the Amazon? How does a shamanistic philosophy view modern-day living? Stu
    This week, I'm excited to welcome Dr. Alberto Villoldo. Dr. Villoldo is a psychologist and medical anthropologist who has studied the shamanistic healing practices of the Amazon and Andes for over 30 years. He's the founder of The Four Winds Society, an organization dedicated to bridging ancient shamanistic traditions with modern medicine and psychology.
    In this episode, he shares his experiences in the Amazon and discusses how he teaches people to grow new bodies that resist disease through modern day shamanistic rituals. Over to Dr. Villoldo.
    Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I'm delighted to welcome Dr. Alberto Villoldo to the podcast. Dr. Villoldo, how are you?
    Alberto
    01:53 I'm well. Thank you.
    Stu
    01:55 Thank you so much for sharing your time. And I know that you've got a very unique story that we're going to dig into this morning, and it's going to take us on a little bit of a different journey. But before we get into that, I would love for any of our listeners that may not have heard about you or your work, just to tell us a little bit about where you started and why you do what you do, please.
    Alberto
    02:18 Just in a nut shell, I'm a medical anthropologist and I've spent the last 30 years traveling through the Amazon and the Andes mountains and throughout the jungles of the world to study the shamans, the medicine men and women that create health. They don't treat disease. Their practice has to do with creating the conditions for health, and then disease goes away or does not manifest.
    In contrast with our Western medical practice, where we don't really have a healthcare system, we have a deceased care system. The shamans that I work with focused on creating health, psychosomatic health, health through your foods, your diet, nutrition, through your breathing practice, your sleep, and of course, through the luminous energy field that surrounds the physical body and organizes it.

    Will
    00:01:35 I'm doing fantastic, Stu. It's a pleasure to connect with you from the other side of the world. We're all immersed in this COVID-19 crisis right now, but it turns out that now is a great time to double down on health. Now is a great time to double down on gut health.
    Stu
    00:01:54 Yes.
    Will
    00:01:54 I don't think it's ever been as important as it is right now.
    Stu
    00:01:57 I think so. I think so, and probably never been a better time to dial in and listen to some podcasts as well because you're likely going to be at home. You're going to have a little bit more free time and feeling that you want to empower yourself with the right thing. So, first up for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd just love it if you could tell everybody a little bit about yourself please.
    Will
    00:02:23 Oh, happy to. So, I am a board certified gastroenterologist in the United States, so that means that I'm practicing, seeing people with digestive issues. That's what I do for a living. That's my full time job. All this stuff that you find that about me, for example, I have an Instagram account called the gut health MD with a large following. I've written a book called Fiber Fueled, which by the way Stu, I just want to mention that somehow I managed to pick out two words that are spelled differently in Australia than in the United States.
