Warning! This episode may be very difficult for many to listen to. Jeanice Barcelo reveals some ugly truths around how we treat our babies while in the womb and how they are brought into the world. There is also a picture at 1:33:40 comparing a circumcised penis to an intact one for educational purposes.
Jeanice Barcelo is an author, speaker, educator and activist intent on revealing the truth about the medical system, with a big focus on prenatal care and birthing procedures.
Brett Hawes knew early on that there was something amiss with the medical system as, during his first job in Canada as maintenance in a senior’s facility, he watched the health of the elderly slowly decline as a result of the western medical model. This fuelled him to learn more and led to studies in multiple forms of natural medicine.
In this episode we dive into many areas, the first being on how to build resiliency and what that looks like for the individual and the community. We are divided in our communities and Brett shares his opinion on how to restore unified communities, and what mental, physical and immune resilience looks like.
In this episode Derek Fleming, the founder of New Earth Organics (a tonic herb company in Alberta, Canada) goes into why the western medical system is failing us and what we can learn from traditional medicines and approaches to nutrition.
We get into seasonal eating, cultural differences around the understanding of the impacts of different foods on our physiology, why nutrition dogmas are leading us down the wrong path and why going with the flow of nature may better serve us to cultivate robust health.
Naomi and I continue our conversation about parenting in today’s world, and we learn what she would do if her children were young in this current situation. Knowing that this option is not available to all, she also talks about other ways to ensure that the mental and physical health of our children remain intact.
Naomi talks about harms that may come to children as a result of masks and why to encourage them to not take on a world view through the lens of the mask.
She explains how children are resilient, how the home environment is key and how our power is taken from us in the areas pregnancy and parenting, and even from our children in how they are raised and educated.
When I think of advocating for our children, which I find is lacking at this particular time in the world, I think of Naomi Aldort, world-renowned speaker, author and parenting guide.
In this first part of our 2-part interview, Naomi explains her approach to parenting, how that approach can be applied to closing the divide in these divisive times, how self-directed learning is not ‘wishy-washy’ parenting, what one of the most harmful aspects of conventional school is and so much more.
Naomi’s approach honours our children and leads to raising resilient humans, rooted firmly in themselves.
Maria, against her inner guidance, v*cxinated her healthy first son, who, at his 18-month v*cxine appointment, became so damaged that he lost all speech, started to escape from his mother 50 times an hour, could not clear his bowels and was in constant pain, engaged in self-injurious behaviour, barely slept before he would wake up with night terrors, and more.
Maria was told that her son would be institutionalized and may never speak again, but she would not accept that and gave up everything to dedicate her life to find healing for her son.
We must share these stories – they are not rare and they don’t get the recognition they deserve. Maria’s story is real, and if you are in the same position, know that you are not alone and there is hope.
Imani has been busy moderating and organizing conscious conversations with world-renowned experts to bring inspiration and the most up to date, groundbreaking information in a time of disinformation and perpetual media fear-mongering.
Through her book, The Presence/Absence of Soil, she addresses the key topics that are limiting and harming the health of humans, and more importantly, our children. We get into many topics in this conversation, including the role of mothers, why we need to connect with like-minded people, ideas to navigate these days, and more.
Some may say that we only are only as strong as our microbiome – it is that important. So what does that mean for our health in todays’ world of sanitizing, masking, social distancing and so on?
In this episode, the lovely Luka Symons, Holistic Nutrition Practitioner, gives us tips on how to achieve health and her top four tips for supporting a thriving, diverse microbiome. (Spoiler…none of the tips she gives correspond with any of the recommendations being touted today for virus protection.)
Reinette Senum stepped down from her 3rd term as the mayor of Nevada City, California so that she could step up for humanity.
In February 2020, she was conservative in her views of the rona virus and encouraged protective measures to be taken, such as distancing and masking. However, she very quickly discerned that the measures being mandated did not add up and at their root, did not seem to be about health or in the best interest of the people.
I introduce myself and give some insight as to why I created this podcast and what to expect from it. My background is holistic nutrition, health coaching and a degree in chemistry. I love to question everything and love sharing what I learn.
When we know better, we do better.
