AUGUST // Things we love
Lately I have been so inspired by podcasts. I spend a lot of time filling bottles with herbal blends for a nearby company- so these episodes have been a great way to learn more while I work. Podcasts are also an excellent way to engage the mind during a repetitive task, a commute, or a long road trip with friends! The Herbal Highway is a very informative podcast created by herbalists Sarah Holmes and Karyn Sanders out of Berkley, California. The show usually touches on a wide variety of plants and they also have an extensive knowledge on flower essences. The July 24th episode on digestion is obviously my favorite. I liked their idea of using St. John's Wort infused oil (1tsp twice a day) internally for ulcers and the nerve pain that can accompany them.
I also listen to the widely popular Bulletproof podcast, the man behind "Bulletproof Coffee." His recent interview with Donna Gates of Body Ecology is a must listen. Many have used her diet to help with Candida, Chronic Fatigue, Auto-immune Diseases, and even Autism.
Radio Lab is fascinating and brings in a lot of science. Check out this one called "Gut Feelings."
