    Fasting, Fragrances, and Freedom

    Fasting, Fragrances, and Freedom

    On this episode we chat about a few very important topics, fasting, fragrances, and freedom. 

    Fasting has been used for thousands of years for health and spiritual reasons. We go over the different types of fasting, a brief historical overview, and then transition into its many benefits as well as how to get started.

    Next we discuss the term fragrance, what it really means, where it's found, and why it's harmful. 

    Last, but certainly not least, we discuss freedom and why it's more important than ever to stand up for freedom of choice to all, no matter what you choose.

    Censorship on Natural Health

    Censorship on Natural Health

    Over the past year and half we've seen censorship happen all over the world at an unprecedented rate. The attack on freedom of speech in America is real and doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon. The censorship of natural health is one of the many subjects being targeted. But this isn't actually something new. On this episode we briefly go over a few historical highlights of health censorship as well as the most recent attacks. 

    Topics include:

    history of natural health censorship

    1500's England 

    John D Rockefeller

    censoring natural doctors 

    Wikipedia "locking" certain pages


    what we can do to fight back

    Not mentioned (but should have been) is using other search engines besides Google. I use DuckDuckGo which doesn't censor (for now) like some other companies. I also use the Brave browser.

    10 Lessons from Trying to Heal

    10 Lessons from Trying to Heal

    When we go down a holistic healing path we're often confronted with some serious revelations. Much of what we learn conflicts with everything we thought we knew.

    On this episode we explore the 10 lessons we learn when trying to heal ourselves or our families. It was inspired by an article I read in Pathways, a magazine that is all about empowering families to step into their own path to wellness, "regenerating and transforming ourselves, our families, our communities and our world." The author of the article highlights the lessons she learned through the process of trying to heal her kids. These are important things I learned as well that helped open my eyes to the current healthcare paradigm.
