Ask the questions that have no answers.
Invest in the millennium. Plant sequoias.
Say that your main crop is the forest
that you did not plant,
that you will not live to harvest.
Say that the leaves are harvested

when they have rotted into the mold.
Call that profit. Prophesy such returns.
Put your faith in the two inches of humus
that will build under the trees
every thousand years.
— Wendell Berry

  • Herbworks’ Inner Peace supplement: I was so inspired by Roger Drummer (podcast above) that I decided to try his supplement. A half dose (three capsules) at night has given me some of the deepest and most dream-filled sleep of my life. This is a potent mix!
  • Susun Weed: I’m having so much fun listening to her. She’s not agreeable to everyone, but her tough love comes from a life of work with plants that continues today.
  • Recently finished reading The Quantum Doctor, by Amit Goswami. Because sometimes I grasp. I liked the idea but overall it was too speculative for me. And so I'm rebounding with some classicCarlos Castanada, heh.
  • A fiery piece from Hippocrates Health Institute, which I respect for being unwavering in extremeness: Raw Veganism: The Most “Extreme” Diet?

"Clearly, vitality comes from eating vegetables, preferably in their raw state. I don’t care if man has lived for the last 5,000 years on a diet of hamburgers and pizza; it simply is not the healthiest way to live."

NEW: From You! Q&A Date

"I’d love to hear more about immunity and daily vs. seasonal detox regimens. I love NY but I’m taking a break from it’s toxicity. I’d love to know how to get my immune system stronger! 💚"- @ham_slamwich

Rachelle: Ham Slamwich has a good approach by taking a break from toxicity for a while. Our bodies are alway processing toxins, and all of our lives involve toxicity, albeit in different quantities and kinds depending on where and how we live. Overall, it’s important for us to be mindful of those facts - that pollution intake is inevitable, and that our bodies are working against it. I’d suggest minimizing chemicals from food and water (eat organic and filter water), home/body products (use natural cleaners and skin-care you could eat - because your skin does that), and environment (use air filters for example; or find a park).
As for inside-out support, do consider the liver but know that other organs are involved in detoxification too. Our skin is our largest detoxification organ (shout out to dry brushing) and others include the kidneys, lungs and intestinal tract. Daily good deeds go a long way. Sometimes a juice cleanse is a great idea. Sometimes (usually always) eating more greens is ideal. Sometimes Dry January should include February and March too. Sometimes moving to a new place is best. Sometimes, some dandelion root will do the trick. Or nettle, burdock root, milk thistle, some wheatgrass, and more fiber (surprise!). As for immunity, I’ll save that one for a future Q&A. @ham_slamwich, thanks for being my first!
