Dr. Robert Ostfeld has emerged as one of the more vocal leaders in the movement to educate both our population and our medical professionals about the vast powers of the whole foods, plant-based diet. And, he is conveying his powerful message from within the food desert of the Bronx, NY. He not only helps his patients reverse their debilitating conditions of heart disease, he actively promotes the preventative powers of the diet by hosting healthy and open community whole foods plant-based meals and by actively promoting the diet through interviews such as this one. We discuss the myriad of success stories he has personally witnessed, the hurdles to sharing this simple message and the power of community in triggering lifestyle changes. This is an episode which could literally save your life or the life of someone you love. Enjoy!
Some dozen or so years ago, Dr. Eric Pearl had a thriving chiropractic practice in Los Angeles and seemed to be leading a fairly ‘normal’ life. That is, until the lights came on – literally. One night, Dr. Pearl was awoken to find the lights had turned on in his bedroom. Certain of a prowler, he climbed out of bed with his beloved Doberman by his side, only to find no one had burglarized his home. The following days and weeks though at his office forecast a very uniquely different sort of arrival. This explains the dawn of Reconnective Healing, a revolutionary healing modality which – to Dr. Pearl – stands at the true leading edge of health, science and consciousness. We had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Pearl some years ago at one of his workshops, and indeed the frequencies of energy which flow during the simple practice of reconnective healing are profoundly elegant, vivifying and truly have an intelligence all their own. This podcast episode delves into the nuances of the practice, covers more of the story of “how” these frequencies began flowing through Dr. Pearl (and, subsequently, his many thousands of students worldwide), the nature of consciousness, God & what it means to truly “know”. It is safe to say that Dr. Pearl was initially reluctant to step into the world of energy and healing, but nowadays – convinced of the truth of his cause – he is unabashed in his belief that his calling is truly serving others, while also rather naturally expanding his own life and understanding of our place in the vast universal field of cosmic energy.
Stacie Malkus never saw herself in sales, much less network marketing. So, when an opportunity to become a rep with an essential oils business came her way, she balked. That is, until she saw how powerful the oils were when she used them to help her daughter’s sleep. After Brooklyn took a 3-hour nap, mommy became a believer. Now, she oversees a 40K member team, selling healthy essential oils to those craving an alternative to the mainstream path of medicine and drugs. This episode began as an exploration of these oils and how wide-ranging and beautifully effective they are in treating all manner of illness and injury. But, along the way, we realized that this episode was also about the return of network marketing as a viable, powerful business for those who’d rather not sit at a desk all day. In the last couple of years, Stacie has grown her business to becoming the lone bread winner in her family (she “retired her husband” a few years ago), and now their family enjoys more time together, enjoying the outdoors (surfing in particular), traveling and more. For those seeking ways to treat pain and illness more holistically AND for people who desire an elegant alternative to working 9-5, then this podcast is for you. Enjoy!
