     Janoah takes a slightly different approach to his coaching than many of the ‘purests’ you see in the space and is not your average meditation teacher… (and don't call him a guru!)
    A former self-proclaimed, “directionless party boy,” Janoah re-invented himself as an Entrepreneur, Mentor and Meditation Teacher (who still loves a good time.)

    379: How to Juice Your Way to Wellness and Weight-loss with Drew Canole

    379: How to Juice Your Way to Wellness and Weight-loss with Drew Canole

    Imagine a world where instead of 1.6 billion coke drinkers, there are 1.6 billion (and more) people drinking green juice. Today’s guest is passionate about making that a reality. So in episode 378, we're throwing it all the way back to 2017 to our interview with Founder of Organifi, Drew Canole!
    Twelve years ago Drew was 45 pounds overweight, pretty unclear about what his life purpose was, going out all the time, and drinking too much. But we all have a wake-up moment, and once Drew had his, there was no turning back. He knew he had to contribute to the world and make a positive difference.
    Drew went on a 90-day juice cleanse, lost 40 pounds, gained clarify, focus, energy, and a ton on online support! He’s on a mission to help people experience radical joy, connect to oneness, live their purpose, and be the healthiest, fittest version of themselves. He recommends a delicate blend of self-love, listening to what your body is telling you, and cellular nourishment.
    Drew created a delicious brand of superfood powders, Organifi. We can’t get enough of them and Drew has very generously given Food Heals Nation a hefty 20% off with the coupon code FoodHeals!
    The range of products includes green powder for cleansing and fat burning (with spirulina, chlorella, moringa, matcha, ashwaganda, chlorophyll and more… all the greens without the “green” taste), reishi gold drink for immunity (with reishi and antioxidant turmeric), red anti-aging juice (with acai and cordyceps), protein powder (with added enzymes for better digestion), probiotics, and everything you need to rebalance your body and enjoy a happy, healthy, fit life.

    378: From Kidnapped to Finding Her Kindred Spirits, Lori Harder Teaches Us The Power of Community

    378: From Kidnapped to Finding Her Kindred Spirits, Lori Harder Teaches Us The Power of Community

    Life is more than the hustle – life’s about community. It’s about finding your tribe, the people with keys that open up parts of yourself you never knew were there. 
    Lori Harder grew up without that tribe…
    …in a small town, in an overweight family who believed they were victims of their genes. She was home schooled and had zero friends outside of her family religion. She was lonely, repressed and depressed. And even though fitness eventually set her free, both in her diet and in her spirit, it was a long journey and full of obstacles. Despite changing her body, winning competitions, and being successful, Lori still couldn’t shake how miserable she felt.
    This is something so many of us struggle with. We think we’ll be happy when we get that job, lose 10 pounds, get married, buy a house…but if we don’t confront and heal the inner stories that run in our mental background, happiness will always be elusive and short-lived.
    Lori had to stop and figure out what was blocking her from feeling true joy and lasting happiness. Suddenly she knew she wanted something she’d never had: community. She wanted to give women somewhere to go, a place to feel accepted and connected. 
    As host of the Earn Your Happy podcast, founder of the Bliss Project, and author of A Tribe Called Bliss, Lori now helps women to find their tribe, connect with their communities, and manifest their dream life.
    Enjoy this #classis #throwback episode co-hosted by Suzy Hardy!

    376: Three Ways to Reverse Your Cellular Age, Look Better, and Feel Younger with Dr. Stephen Cabral

    376: Three Ways to Reverse Your Cellular Age, Look Better, and Feel Younger with Dr. Stephen Cabral

    What is a hormetic stressor and how can it help our bodies feel younger, look better, and even kill cancer cells?
    What are the true secrets of anti-aging to help us reverse our cellular age?
    These are the questions that my guest, Dr. Stephen Cabral, is back to discuss on today's episode of Food Heals!
    Dr. Cabral developed his passion for health & wellness after going through severe health complications at the age of 17. He saw over 50 different doctors, tried over 100 different treatment protocols, but still saw no hope of recovery.
    It wasn’t until he met an “alternative” health doctor whom explained to him how he got here and how he could become well again, that he began his recovery process. It was at this young age that he knew his life would be dedicated to helping others rebalance their bodies and renew their health.
    To hear his full story go all the way back to episode 186 of Food Heals, and of course you can check out his show, The Cabral Concept wherever you get your podcasts.

This approach provides comprehensive solutions so that people can understand their bodies better, assess how well different systems are functioning, rebalance any areas that might not be performing at peak, and maintain that balance once they have achieved it.

    375: Ask Alli: Losing Both Parents to Cancer by the Time I Was 25 Years Old

    375: Ask Alli: Losing Both Parents to Cancer by the Time I Was 25 Years Old

    Witnessing her mother and father — in short succession — lose their lives to cancer, Allison Melody endured significant trauma in her 20s. Why did their bodies fail them? Why did the doctors have no answers?
    This tragic loss instilled in Allison an unwavering passion for nutrition and propelled her into the world of holistic health and healing.
    She vowed to honor her parents’ memory by dedicating her life to finding a way to heal the body naturally. After interviewing hundreds who have healed themselves of chronic and degenerative diseases for her film Powered By Plants and podcast Food Heals, Allison now firmly believes that the body has the ability to heal itself when given the tools it needs to do so.
    Tune in to Part 2 of Ask Alli to hear:
    - Why her ex used to call Alli "Country Club"
    - What Multiple Sclerosis is and how it affected Alli's mom
    - The horrible teen experience that caused Alli give up red meat for good
    - The "cure" that killed her mother before it killed the cancer
    - Is it true that "Time Heals all Wounds?"
    - Why a patchouli smelling doctors "office" did not cut it for Alli's baby boomer dad
    - What losing both her parents to cancer taught Alli about disease, life, and love

Aloe

My uncle had stage 4 cancer and his doctor gave him a prescription for Aloe Vera vitamins which he still takes to keep the cancer away. So for you to be censored for educating us on the healing products of Aloe is not okay. Even the medical field knows and practices using aloe.
You are amazing and thanks for educating us! Hugs 🤗
