    Eating for disease reversal and planetary health with Dr. Michael Klaper

    Eating for disease reversal and planetary health with Dr. Michael Klaper

    Bear with me as I blush over Dr, Michael Klaper coming on to my podcast, one of my favorite plant-based physicians for over a decade. It takes me a few minutes to get all the “thank you's” out of my system before we dive into an inspiring conversation about not only the science but the logic of plant-based eating for everything - for your health, the health of the planet that our children and future generations will grow up on, and for the animals.

    Dr. Klaper is a general practitioner, a 40+ year vegan, and a picture of health. At 74 years old Klaper shares evidence based nutrition with his youthful enthusiasm and has decades of experience reversing patients chronic illness to thrive with plant-based nutrition and integrative medicine. He now lectures at medical schools across the country to empower the next generation of doctors to better heal their patients with plant-predominant nutrition and lifestyle changes to get to the root cause rather than just treating the symptom..

    In this episode dr. Klaper passionately covers


    His vegan story and life growing up on a dairy farm
    The basics of how to eat when transitioning to a plant-based diet
    Dairy, is it good for you? What about raw unpasteurized dairy?
    chronic illness and disease in America and how it’s largely from diet and lifestyle factors
    why there is so much confusion about what’s best for our health and conflicting information
    His thoughts on grass fed, free range and regenerative grazing animal products
    Animal agriculture’s impact on pollution, the climate and overall planetary health
    What about the farmers? If the masses switched to plant-based what will happen to the farmers?
    The Moving Medicine Forward Initiative to create a nutritional awakening among a new generation of doctors.
    Plant-Based Telehealth as a model of health-care for now and the future
    What keeps him going and motivated and not giving up out of frustration

    Fully Raw Kristina & Cash on CANCEL CULTURE | the rise of "call out" culture

    Fully Raw Kristina & Cash on CANCEL CULTURE | the rise of "call out" culture

    I sit down with Fully Raw Kristina and Cash to discuss the social phenomenon and rise of cancel culture. Sometimes more accurately described as “call out culture,” it collectively attempts to harm the reputation, social presence, and sometimes even livelihood for violating a particular ideological standard.

    At this point in her career, Fully Raw Kristina has been “called-out” more times than one can count. In this episode she shares her personal stories, how she handles the mob rule, where she came from, and where she is today. Cash, her boyfriend, brings insight into many of the specific events Kristina has gone through and his support for her. Together we unpack, dissect and reflect on what cancel culture means for our society, it’s consequences, and how we can move forward.

    This episode covers


    Kristina and Cash’s relationship story
    Their life in Hawaii, garden goals and plans
    Dissecting cancel culture and what encourages social media mob rule
    Self censorship and the current political environment online
    The times Kristina has been “called out” throughout her online career
    The Veg News fiasco
    social media during the George Floyd protests
    Self acceptance: It isn’t your job to make everyone like you
    How you’ll never be criticized by someone who is doing more than you
    Hate videos/comments vs constructive criticism
    The watering down of important labels
    living in an echo chamber: the consequences of labeling everyone who disagrees with you as morally repugnant
    If ill intent versus well intentioned changes anything
    And moreeee.

    Stay madly in love while raising kids

    Stay madly in love while raising kids

    That fire-filled love you had when you first sparked up a relationship does not have to disappear over time, and especially doesn’t have to end once you have kids. Sometimes relationships can be put on the back burner when kids, jobs, and household becomes overwhelming. But with the right tools and mindset, you can restore your relationship and experience both unconditional love and hot steamy fire love too.

    Don’t go pointing the finger and wait for your partner to change first. With your unconditional love and direction you can rally a shift within both of you.

    This episode covers:


    Restoring your relationship when you’re in a rut
    Bringing back the fire and steamy feelings for each other
    How to show your partner love in the way they receive it best, and receive love back to way you want too
    Navigating different ideologies on how to raise your kids
    Co-parenting harmoniously
    Sex life and libido: make it amazing and fiery
    Handling arguments/disagreements in front of your kids
    Having each other’s back while parenting your kids
    The 5 Love languages
    How every experience with your partner either adds love to or takes away from your partner’s “love bank”
    Long lasting unconditional love is the answer

    **If you are in an abusive relationship please seek immediate support and help at places like https://www.thehotline.org . This episode does not cover the immensely important topic of domestic and child abuse which requires an obviously much different route than what’s covered in this episode. If you are in an abusive relationship, please disregard the message in this episode and reach out for professional support. I hope to have on guests which have experts on this subject down the road, to adequately cover this topic.***

    Simplifying Plant-Based Nutrition | Tips to Thrive (part 1)

    Simplifying Plant-Based Nutrition | Tips to Thrive (part 1)

    Welcome to the first episode of The Ellen Fisher Podcast! To kick off the show I thought it fitting to go in depth on one of the topics I’m most passionate about, abundant plant-based nutrition. I’ve learned so much over the last 15 years on my vegan journey both from experts in the field as well as from my own experience, and I am so excited to share this information with you more in depth than I ever have before. Because it can be easy to get confused with so much conflicting information out there. Today we are going to clear the mud and simplify nutrition to make sense of the noise that is diet culture. I like to take a balanced approach that really considers both the large body of scientific evidence as well as a logical and simplified understanding towards what’s natural for us based on our physiology and how we are designed to thrive.

    There’s a lot I want to cover so I’ll be breaking this up into two parts. In part 1 today I’m going to cover:


    My healing story
    A few of my favorite plant-based books/resources
    The break down and simplification of plant-based nutrition from the overwhelming scientific body of evidence. (resources shared below)
    The Blue Zones and what it tell us
    What our natural diet is as a species based on physiological traits and natural inclination
    Food subsidies
    What isolated versus whole foods are.
    THE DETAILS: what foods are best for our health
    Optimizing your nutrient bioavailability in food
    And a little on specific TIPS TO THRIVE... but more on that in part 2
    Balance is key


    I hope you thoroughly enjoy this episode and feel empowered to take charge of your health and promote longevity through plant-based nutrition which positively impacts not only you, but others and the world around you. And don’t forget to listen to part 2!
    As always, consult with your trusted healthcare provider before making any drastic changes in your diet, especially If you are on medication. And hey, don’t take my word for all this, do your research too so you can stand strong in your own conclusions.

Jess N.A. ,

This podcast made me Go vegan!!

I have been following Ellen on Instagram and YouTube for a few years now, watching her family evolve and seeing her realize her and her husband’s dream of living off the land and raising gorgeous, homeschooled vegan babies. I always thought — “Wow, what a life” but I never felt connected enough to feel it could also be the kind of life I could have until I started listening to these podcasts & everything clicked.

A week ago I decided to go totally plant-based & I must say it all feels so obvious now. Ellen has made me really see what it really means to live a Whole Foods, plant-based life. It is not a life of restriction but a life of the greatest inspiration I have felt in my adult life. Learning about this lifestyle has made me appreciate the world around me so much more— I am so much more conscious of the implications of my actions on a daily basis, always considering how the money I spend and the food I consume will affect the environment, the economy, the animals and my body. And did I mention my body is already feeling 100x better than it did before?

My dad is a diabetic & tomorrow he will be having a toe amputated. 6 years ago his mother had a stroke & a few years after that my grandfather was lucky enough to survive a heart attack, which was undoubtedly caused by an entire lifetime consuming almost nothing but red meat, dairy and Diet Coke. I know with this lifestyle I will save myself, I will save my future family & I will hopefully inspire my dad to save himself before it’s too late.

I have never left a review for a podcast before but I am really so grateful to have found content like this. My heart is so full knowing I finally took the leap & I encourage anyone even thinking about pressing play to do it as soon as you can!

Amazing podcast!

Ellen is such a light in this world🌟 I have followed her YouTube and Instagram for years. Both her life journey and her passions are so inspiring. So excited she is doing this podcast!!

Awful

Another fake “peace and love” vegan living on stolen land who whines when people don’t like her terrible, harmful views. Guess what Ellen, you have the right to say what you think and people have the right to not like it and not want to support it. I feel bad for your children who are affected by your poor choices.
