A Mother's Grief and the Animals Who Saved Her with Robin Birdsong
In this episode Amelia shares the arrival of Ava Rosemary, and chats with fellow loss mom and owner of The Enchanted Farm Sanctuary, Robin Birdsong. Robin lost her beautiful little boy, Danny, to SIDS in 2007. She fell into a depression so deep she couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, couldn't function. Her 10 year relationship with her fiancé, Danny's father, fell apart. She lost everything, including the will to live. Then finally one night after months of despair she googled "bereaved mother" to find help. What popped up was totally unexpected, and altered the course of her life completely... This is a powerful episode and a reminder that our deepest grief can also become our greatest ally and gift. Our suffering can help us become more empathetic and deepen our resolve to help others. Out of the darkest days of our life may come a spark of light that reveals truths that were hidden or we were blind to before. Pain can propel us towards living a life with more meaning and purpose.

How the Longest Living (and Liveliest!) People Eat with Renae Thomas, MD
Amelia interviews Dr Renae Thomas, an Australian-born lifestyle medicine doctor in Loma Linda, California. Loma Linda is one of five extensively researched Blue Zones, which are places in the world where people live longer and healthier than anywhere else on earth. The average lifespan of Loma Linda residents is 10 years longer than the US national average, and they are 10 times more likely to live to 100 than typical Americans. And they aren't just living long either—these people are living into old age while remaining active and healthy, and often without medication or disability. How is this possible? What role does nutrition play? We talk about this and so much more. Dr Thomas' enthusiasm is truly contagious and uplifting, and you'll finish this episode feeling inspired and amazed at the power we have to transform our own lives.
