  3. 3. (Some) Inflammatory Diseases: Mental:  ADHD  Alzheimer’s  Attention & focus issues  Asperger’s and Autism  Bipolar disorder  Brain fog/ lack of clarity  Delayed reaction time  Dementia  Learning Disabilities  Memory problems  OCD  Parkinson’s  Sensory Integration Issues (Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, etc.)  Word-finding Issues Emotional:  Depression  Anxiety/ Panic  Anger & Violence Physical:  Addison’s Disease  Allergies and Sensitivities  ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)  Angina (& other heart disease)  Arthritis  Asthma  Cancer  Celiac Disease  Crohn’s Disease  Diabetes  Graves’ Disease  Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis  Hepatitis Physical:  Inflammatory Bowel Disease  Lupus  Multiple Sclerosis  Myasthenia Gravis  Obesity  Periodontitis  Pernicious Anemia  Sarcoidosis  Sjögren’s syndrome  Skin Problems (Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne, Rashes)  Tuberculosis  Ulcers, Ulcerative Colitis  Vasculitis & Arteritis There are over 80 autoimmune diseases, all of which are caused by chronic inflammation.
  4. 4. What Is Inflammation? Acute Surface Inflammation: PRISH  Pain  Redness  Immobility  Swelling (or Stiffness)  Heat Only some of these signs may be noticeable inside the body (lungs, gut, bones, etc.) . Chronic Internal Inflammation:  Abdominal pain  Chest pain  Distention  Fatigue  Fever  Joint pain  Mouth sores  Rash
  5. 5. What Causes Inflammation?  Chronic Stress  Immune Challenges  Leaky Gut (Intestinal Permeability)  Malnourishment (backlog of tasks from missing materials for repair and maintenance)  Physical Injury  Toxins The immune system recognizes irritants, invaders, and damaged cells. It launches a biological process to break these down so they can be removed from the body. This biological process causes irritation, inflammation, fluid (e.g. pus) build-up, and finally granulation, the first stage of building new and healthy tissues. Inflammation is the body’s natural protection, and a first step to healing wounds,
  6. 6. What Causes Chronic Inflammation? 1. Leaky Gut 2. Chronic Infections 3. Heightened Toxic Body Burden If inflammation persists, it causes ongoing harm to the body, which leads to… chronic health conditions and diseases. Human digestive, immune, and detox systems overlap by 60 to 85%, depending on the expert. Sommai FreeDigitalPhotos.net

  8. 8. Soil Health = Microbiome Health “There is growing evidence that CIDs (chronic inflammatory diseases) are characterized by a change in microbiome composition.” - Dr. Alessio Fasano, Harvard Medical School https://www.ancestralhealth.nl/2018/early-nutrition-can-shape-gut- microbiota-implications-autoimmunity-epidemics-lesson-learned- celiac-disease/ https://www.drperlmutter.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Celiac- non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity-review-JAMA-2017.pdf DC Dominici FreeDigitalPhotos.net
  9. 9. Gut as Ecosystem  An unhealthy gut microbiome (microbial ecosystem) allows infection, toxin accumulation, and harm to the digestive system, leaving the gut lining vulnerable to perforation and loose junctions.  When the gut lining leaks, the immune system is faced with undigested food, unwelcome digestive microbes, and toxic microbial wastes in the bloodstream.  The immune system launches inflammation to deal with the invaders… which don’t stop entering the bloodstream, so the inflammation doesn’t stop. The 3 top causes of leaky gut are stress, gluten, and glyphosate. Cbenjasuwan FreeDigitalPhotos.net
  10. 10. Evidence Trumps Old Model: Old: Body As Machine  Parts/ systems can be studied and understood in isolation  If a part or system doesn’t work, fix or replace it without worrying about impacts on the rest of the system  Give the part or system the right “fix”, and it will keep going New: Body As Ecosystem  Each part and system is intimately, functionally entwined in a whole body  Assessment of health is impossible without addressing each part or system’s impact on all the others  Health of system or part isn’t possible without whole body health.

  16. 16. Why Does Soil Health Matter? What Hurts? What Helps?
  17. 17. Just Like Goldilocks… http://www.soilhealth.com/soil- health/fertility/chemical.htm Same for toxins and salts…
  18. 18. Range of Tolerance  Thousands of factors (air, water, EMFs, toxins….)  Optimal, suboptimal, or deadly amounts?  U-shaped curve (impacts from both high and low amounts)
  19. 19. Organic Matter Organic matter composition and breakdown rate affect:  Soil structure and porosity  Water infiltration rate  Moisture holding capacity  Diversity & activity of soil microorganisms  Plant nutrient availability Accelerated decomposition of organic matter (e.g. from tilling, burning) leaves soil vulnerable to erosion
  20. 20. Soil Wildlife Supports Soil Fertility Soil Creatures:  Help form soil from original “parent” rock  Help aggregation of soil particles  Enhance nutrient cycling  Shift nutrients to other forms  Help plants absorb soil nutrients  Break down toxins  Minimize plant disease (and cause a few, too)  Contribute to pest control & other vital ecological processes  Assist or hinder water penetration into soil http://www.fao.org/docrep/009/a0100e/a0100e02.htm
  21. 21. Swiss DOK Comparison 1978: Long term trial started. 7-year crop rotation compared biodynamic (D), organic (O) agriculture, and conventional (K) O and D plots contain 25% more soil micro-organisms and exhibit higher long-term soil fertility Plants in O and D plots are more strongly colonized by mycorrhiza, and a greater number of funghal species are involved Kenya, India, Bolivia started similar trials in 2007 https://biodynamics.on.ca/blog/2015/08/15 /dok-trial-worlds-significant-long-term-field- trial-comparing-organic-conventional- cropping-systems/ http://www.systems- comparison.fibl.org/en/scp-home.html
  22. 22. Frick Trial of Biodynamic Preparations  Reduced tillage resulted in 7% higher yields of biodynamic crops than in the ploughed control plots, averaged over 11 years  Reduced tillage biodynamic soils had 17% more humus, 37% more microbial biomass, better soil structure, and greater water retention capacity than the ploughed control plots  Biodynamic preparations yielded statistically significant differences in the microbial C/N ratio, indicating changes in the soil ratio of funghi to bacteria http://www.fibl.org/en/switzerland/research/soil-sciences/bw-projekte/frick-trial-on-preparations.html
  23. 23. Manure: No Extra Microbial Risk In a study of enteric (colon) bacterial transfer risk when growing head lettuce with manure, even in worst-case scenarios there was no evidence of additional safety risk from use of organic soil fertilizers. http://www.qlif.org/Library/leaflet s/folder_3_small.pdf
  24. 24. Farming Is Not Benign  500 years to build 1” of topsoil (crops demand ~ 6”)  farming disturbs natural soil processes, including the release and uptake of nutrients  Topsoil loss from erosion, lack of plant cover; fertility loss from chemical damage  Pesticides and herbicides either block the function of soil microbes, or outright kill the bacteria & funghi which support plants in accessing soil nutrients  Plants can grow with NPK alone (junk food), but are more susceptible to disease, and missing other nutrients
  25. 25. Soil Erosion 1. Destruction of soil structure from:  Intense tillage  Soil compression, esp. vehicular  Excess plant removal  Soil nutrient depletion 2. Exposed soil vulnerable to wind & water 3. Exposed biota vulnerable to sun, extreme temperatures
  26. 26. Pesticides Reduce Soil Fertility  Pesticides block the chemical signals that allow N-fixing bacteria to function (Tulane University, Jennifer Fox & colleagues), so increasing amounts of N are needed to produce the same harvest  Plant roots send phytochemical signals into the soil, which bind to NodD receptors inside bacteria, which in turn prompts the bacteria to travel back along the signal’s path to the root  NodD receptors are bound by pesticides so plant signals aren’t received https://www.chemistryworld.com/news/some- pesticides-can-reduce-soil- fertility/3003718.article Annankkml, freedigitalphotos.net
  27. 27. Even if Unsprayed… Fields left fallow or not sprayed can still receive pesticides through surface run-off, groundwater, and irrigation systems, and can still receive other synthetic toxins through rain and snow fall. No place on earth is toxin-free…
  28. 28. Farming to Restore Soil Health Biodynamic Farmer-derived, internationally accepted standard On-farm sources for re- nourishing soils, rebuilding microbial diversity Deliberate planning and action, with expectation of ongoing improvement for continued Demeter certification Permaculture/ Restoration Ag. Perennial plants allow exceptional microbial recovery Next-to-no soil tillage, turnover, or burning Ecosystem thinking restores complexity and resilience, and optimizes carbon- drawdown.
  29. 29. Paul Hawken – “Drawdown” 2 things address climate change: 1. Reduce emissions 2. Sequester excess carbon from the air into the soil through photosynthesis NB: Carbon drawdown is impossible where rewards from soil microbes are unavailable… Burning fuels releases carbon into the air - commercial agriculture is doing a huge part of the damage. Ideal soil organic content of 7 to 8% (dark and deep).
  30. 30. Project Drawdown https://www.drawdown.org/solutions- summary-by-rank  100 viable, scalable, and financially feasible options  12 of top 20 relate to food and land management  Estimated savings from implementing these 100 solutions are 74 trillion US dollars globally (cost is 29 trillion), net savings of 44 trillion https://www.ted.com/talks/chad_frischma nn_100_solutions_to_climate_change (3) Reduced Food Waste (4) Plant-Rich Diet (5) Tropical Forests (9) Silvopasture (11) Regenerative Agriculture (12) Temperate Forest (13) Peatlands (14) Tropical Staple Trees (15) Afforestation (16) Conservation Agriculture (17) Tree Intercropping (19) Managed Grazing
  31. 31. Special Note: Biochar Biochar is waste plant materials burned without the presence of oxygen. Incorporated into soils, it:  Provides a porous and protective home for soil microbes  Reduces decomposition or burning emissions of CO2, N2O, and CH4 (climate change gases) from agricultural and forestry waste  Stimulates plant growth and reduces need for fertilizer inputs  Displaces other fuels for heating Assuming no land clearance or conversion from food crops to biomass, biochar production could offset a maximum of 12% of greenhouse gas emissions annually. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S036054421000510 4, http://www.biochar-international.org/biochar/carbon
  32. 32. Summary: Soil Optimization Low-to-no-tillage, synthetic-chemical-free agriculture increases soil microbial diversity, which:  Better nourishes plants (which better nourish and prevent inflammatory disease in livestock and humans)  Withstands climate change better because of microbial support  Reverses climate change through carbon draw-down
  33. 33. Plant Health Is Degrading Because…  Global air pollution (heavy metals, pesticides, etc.) is contaminating soils and compromising or killing soil microbes  Climate variability is increasing stress on both plants and soil microbes, leaving both more vulnerable, or locally extirpated  Topsoil quantity is being lost (conventional tillage, lack of cover crops and green manures)  Topsoil nutrition is being lost (conventional tillage & synthetic chemical applications)  Topsoil microbiome is getting damaged (plant uptake of nutrients is compromised or blocked)
  34. 34. GMOs: Genetic Migration  Wind pollination contaminating crops elsewhere  Wild relatives (e.g. canola, in the mustard family) hybridizing & passing genes along  GM grass for golf courses is spreading its genes to a 9 mile radius in a single growing season. This has implications for grazers:  Pervasive digestive problems with increased allergic & toxic reactions  Multiple massive tumours (up to 25% body weight)  Die earlier in much larger numbers  Multiple organs & glands damaged, e.g. liver, kidney, pituitary  Sex hormone reversal (females have more male hormones, and vice versa) and infertility http://sitn.hms.harvard.edu/flash/2015/challengin g-evolution-how-gmos-can-influence-genetic- diversity/
  35. 35. GMOs: Livestock & Human Health A recent Canadian study found that 92% of pregnant women had Bt toxin in their blood. 80% of their unborn fetuses had Bt toxin in their blood. The perforation of cell walls by Bt might explain why there has been a 40% increase in gastrointestinal problems since GMOs were introduced. Bt pokes holes in the cells lining the gut (direct cause of intestinal permeability)  Decreased fertility in men and women (men’s fertility is down 50%).  Increased spontaneous abortions.  Live offspring are smaller and less healthy with bizarre mutations.  3rd generation babies non-fertile, with much shorter lives  Conventional baby formula contains GMO corn and soy; corn is wind-pollinated and may be contaminated with GMO corn even in organic formulas https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/09/ 15/genetic-roulette-gmo-documentary.aspx
  36. 36. Glyphosate from Roundup Originally patented as a descaler for industrial boilers (chelates all metals and minerals out of soil and humans). Lack of minerals can shut down or alter metabolic pathways (how bodies accomplish maintenance & repair) E.g. Disruption of the Shikimate Pathway in gut microbes stops production of dopamine, serotonin, and melatonin (90% of serotonin produced by gut microbes)  Low Serotonin: anxiety, suicides, blood sugar dysregulation including diabetes, obesity…  Low Dopamine: Parkinson’s  Low Melatonin: Insomnia Confirmed carcinogen in animals, confirmed mutagen in humans. Biological mechanism for damage may be the replacement of Glycine in DNA with glyphosate, so proteins codes are incorrect, proteins are not built properly  leads to multiple inflammatory diseases. http://people.csail.mit.edu/seneff
  37. 37. Soil Health = Plant Health Of 1,230 Comparative Studies of Organic and Biodynamic Crops vs. Conventional Ones:  Organic crops have higher nutrient levels or lower toxin levels in 56% of studies (conventional crops rank better than organic only 37% of the time)  Biodynamic crops have higher nutrient levels or lower toxin levels in 59% of studies (conventional crops rank better than biodynamic only 27% of the time) http://www.aracaria.com.au/html/biodynamic_nutrition.htm
  38. 38. Average Differences in Nutrient Levels http://www.aracaria.com.au/html/biodynamic_nutrition.htm
  39. 39. Small Nutrient Differences Matter The nutrient differences are because of soil microbes. Nutrients don’t work solo; they interact with each other!  E.g. Higher vitamin C absorption increases the effects of vitamin E, folic acid, and iron  E.g. Higher vitamin E absorption increases the effects of selenium and vitamin A  E.g. Higher vitamin A absorption increases the effects of iron
  40. 40. Phytonutrients Are Anti- Inflammatory  A 6 year onion study found that flavonoids, anthocyanins, quercetin, and antioxidant capacity in onions were higher in ones grown organically versus conventionally (different soil management practices identified as key)  Organic produce contains more total phenols than conventionally-grown crops - phenols include flavonoids, antioxidants that fight genetic damage, cancer, and some neurological disorders (such as Parkinson’s)
  41. 41. Summary: Plant Health  Plant health absolutely relies on healthy, diverse, soil microbial life. The more diverse the soil microbes, the more resilient, tolerant, nourished, and nourishing those plants are.  Organic growing allows soil microbial life to rebuild; Biodynamic growing actively replaces suppressed or missing soil microbes. Permaculture growing actively rebuilds entire ecosystem resilience.
  42. 42. Optimal Human Health: Blue Zones Long lives (regularly reach 100 to 120) of life- long…  Full energy levels, vision, hearing, bladder control, strength…  Lack of disease, allergies, or chronic health challenges  Mental acuity at all ages; next-to-no learning disabilities  Social integration with resulting lack of behaviour problems, compulsions or addictions  Emotional balance (happy children, adults, and seniors)  Learning with no memory problems, no word- finding issues, no looking at the fridge trying to figure out what you wanted… Ricardo, 112, Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica Photo by: Adam Sax, Costa Rica Estateshttps://www.nationalgeographic.com/books/features/5-blue-zones-where-the-worlds-healthiest-people-live/
  43. 43. What Choices Support Optimal Health? In Dr. Joe Pizzorno’s observation, prior to 1970, lifestyle choices were the main determinant of why people stayed healthy, or got sick. 1. Naturally-colourful, high-nutrient-density diet of diverse foods 2. 8 hours sleep nightly 3. Reasonable amounts of frequent, regular exercise 4. Stress management (sense of purpose, hobbies, etc.) 5. Positive quality and quantity of connections with others Photostock, FreeDigitalPhotos.net
  44. 44. Our Little Friends… Most of the 2500+ microbes in our gut are symbiotic, and keep us healthy by:  Producing something we need (vitamin C, vitamin D, EFAs, amino acids…)  Absorbing and breaking down toxic products (that our gut microbes can eat, but which harm us)  Maintaining the health of the gut lining and digestive biofilm  Detoxing environmental toxins  Facilitating communication between consumed foods and immune defenses, resolving food intolerances, and facilitating absorption of foods  Resetting the balance in the immune system, identifying friendly and unfriendly arrivals, and keeping inflammation reined in Their cells outnumber our body’s cells by 10:1. Their DNA outnumbers ours by 100:1. Since WW1, more and more of what we breathe, drink, eat, and touch is killing them… and damaging or killing us as a result. DreamDesigns, FreeDigitalPhotos.net

  46. 46. The Bloom
  47. 47. Lifestyle Is No Longer Enough: Dr. Joe Pizzorno, again: Starting around 1970, passive determinants became the main reason people stayed healthy, or got sick, from exposures to the environment around them.  Toxic agri-chemicals  Metals and synthetic chemicals in manufacturing  Water supply contaminants (living downstream)  Air pollution, sick buildings, and mould  Construction and furnishing pollutants  Personal care and cleaning product toxins  Clothing and bedding toxins  Medicine and vaccination toxins  Ionizing, microwave (WiFi, cell phones), and other radiation, (etc., etc. etc.) Who doesn’t live downstream? John Kasawa, FreeDigitalPhotos.net
  48. 48. How Environment Makes Us Sick (A) We are under daily assault from multiple inflammatory environmental factors which are causing most plant, animal, and human disease. E.g. the additives and agrichemicals that come with foods and beverages disable, destabilize, and cause extinctions of necessary gut microbes, while turning the biofilm sticky and toxic to all but generalist microbes (similar to rats and pigeons in cities).
  49. 49. How Environment Makes Us Sick (B) Dr. Marco Ruggiero found that microbes are far more sensitive to microwaves than the cells of our immune system, whose cell walls function something like a Faraday cage, which most of our resident microbes lack. Microbes communicate with each other, with the biofilm, with foods, and with the digestive and immune systems at the speed of light, using light waves (electromagnetic signals, not chemical ones).
  50. 50. How Environment Makes Us Sick (C) Dr. Deitrich Klinghardt: there’s no such thing as a microbial pathogen. Food either nurtures symbionts, nurtures pathogens, or turns symbiotic microbes into pathogens (now behaving in ways that damage us). Conversely, the right foods can turn pathogens into symbionts. Microbes only become pathogens when we feed them the wrong way, and/or threaten them. E.g. funghi that contribute to our health turn highly pathogenic under the influence of microwaves. A Swiss researcher found that under certain dietary conditions, Clostridia species shift from potentially deadly to very important for health (e.g. C. difficile manufactures EFAs and essential amino acids when fed sweet potatoes).
  51. 51. How Environment Makes Us Sick (D)  Diminished gut microbial diversity decreases digestive ability, nutrient absorption, detoxification, immune regulation, and other functions critical to health.  Many foods are less nutrient dense because, even if there are still nutrients available in the soils, agrichemicals have rendered them inaccessible through chelation, and through suppressing or killing the soil microbes that would assist uptake.  Bodies are decreasingly able to capture necessary nutrients, and spend excess supplies and energy detoxifying both internally-created wastes from inflammation, and externally- sourced poisons absorbed through the airways, the skin, and the gut.
  52. 52. Gut Dysbiosis Causes Inflammation  Inflammation causes NCDs, and dramatically contributes to communicable diseases.  Dr. Mark Hyman: inflammation resulting from imbalanced and missing gut microbes is at the root of 85% or more of disease…  Dr. Alessio Fasano: Stressors open the gaps between the cells in the gut lining, and let poop, microbes, and undigested food into the blood. The immune system then attacks the “invaders”... which never stop invading.
  53. 53. Rodney Dietert Ph.D, The Human Super-Organism: How the Microbiome Is Revolutionizing the Pursuit of a Healthy Life If the immune system matures in an environment where we are missing our intended microbiome, it gets programmed for haphazard, inappropriate responses. It is then only a matter of when and in what tissue disease will show up.  Brain: neuro-behavioural, neuro-degenerative  Liver: metabolic & toxin issues  Gut: digestive, inflammatory issues  Endocrine Glands: hormonal metabolic problems  Bones & Teeth: malformation, osteoporosis, cavities  Veins & Arteries: circulation problems, cardiovascular disease  Immune: cancers and more
  54. 54. Rodney Dietert Ph.D, The Human Super-Organism: How the Microbiome Is Revolutionizing the Pursuit of a Healthy Life When the immune system does not cope well with environmental exposures, relatively innocuous factors can cause dysfunctional immune cells to produce self-damaging inflammatory reactions in the:  Brain & NS: neuro-degeneration  Reproductive Tissues: infertility  Pancreas: blood sugar imbalances, Diabetes  Gut: inflammatory bowel diseases  Lungs & Respiratory system: asthma, allergies  Skin: rashes, eczema, psoriasis, pigmentation issues… and much more  Etc.
  55. 55. Healthy Gut Microbes Prevent (or Reverse) Chronic Inflammation:  Addiction  ADHD  Allergies & Sensitivities  ALS (Lou Gehrig’s)  Alzheimer’s  Anger & Violence  Anxiety  Arthritis  Autism, Asperger’s  Bipolar Disorder  Brain Fog  Neurodegenerative Disorders  OCD  Parkinson’s  PCOS  Personality Disorder  Poor Concentration  Psychosis  Schizophrenia  Skin Problems  Sleep Problems  Suicide  Ulcerative Colitis  Cancer  Chronic Stress  Crohn’s  Dementia  Depression  Diabetes  Dyslexia  Emotionally Numb  Exhausted/Tired, Chronic Fatigue  Fibromyalgia  Hashimoto’s  Heart Disease  IBS  Inattention  Lack of Focus  Learning Disorders  Liver Disease  Lupus  Memory Issues  Mentally Absent  Migraines  Mood Swings  MS And MANY more (remember, 85%+ of all diseases)… http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2013/11/18/244526773/gut-bacteria-might-guide-the-workings-of-our-minds Anxiety, Sensory Over-Responsivity, and GI Problems linked: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2285093
  56. 56. Decrease Agri-Chemical Exposures, Decrease Disease  Eating organic food considerably reduces heart attacks, strokes, cancer, bowel disease, and many other diseases. (IOSR-JAVS vol. 4 issue 6, 2013)  Round-up classed by WHO as probable carcinogen (causes cancer in animals, breaks DNA in human cell culture, and is associated with much higher cancer risk in those most exposed)  Chlorpyrifos associated with developmental delays in infants  Pesticide residues at levels commonly found in North American children’s urine may contribute to ADHD prevalence, and have been linked to reduced sperm quality in men  Organic products are 48% less likely to test positive for cadmium (a toxic heavy metal that accumulates in the liver and kidneys)Biodynamic Trends (2012 Thesis): https://theses.cz/id/126eks/00171088-569954501.pdf Overview from India (2013): http://www.iosrjournals.org/iosr-javs/papers/vol4-issue6/I0465357.pdf?id=7054
  57. 57. Where Does Health Begin? Soil microbes:  Keep soil wildlife & structure resilient and healthy,  Keep plants & trees resilient and healthy,  Keep livestock resilient and healthy, and  Keep humans resilient and healthy
  58. 58. Overall Health & Microbiome The gut microbiome affects all kinds of things with no apparent connection to the gut (skin, brain, joints, memory, word-finding, immune strength). Up to 60% of those with gut dysbiosis (unbalanced gut microbial community) have no obvious digestive issues. Often the first sign of leaky gut is chronic or periodic pain and inflammation somewhere else in the body! Beyond foods & beverages, human microbial damage also results from air pollution, skin pollution, EMFs, and medications. http://drhyman.com/
  59. 59. Human Microbiome Damage Results from: 1. Ineffective Change Management 2. Air pollution & Lower O2 Levels 3. Water Contamination (drinking, bathing, swimming) 4. Inflammatory Food 5. Indoor & Outdoor Environments 6. Skin Contact 7. Toxin Exposures & Impaired Detox Capacity 8. Light, Sound, & Other Frequencies 9. Overstress & Overwhelm 10. Technology, Media, Addiction 11. Broken Communities 12. Dislocation and Spiritual Disconnection
  60. 60. Nutrient Density Biodynamic food is becoming the new standard for high nutrient- density food. http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/130/5/e1406 Wild Foods are often 3x to 10x as nutrient dense as farmed foods… https://www.motherearthnews.com/real-food/wild-foods- zmaz86jazgoe
  61. 61. Dr. Joe Pizzorno (again): Post-1970 Optimal Health Actions:  Turn internet devices to airplane mode, turn off WiFi at night while you sleep, keep radios as far from your bed as possible, get rid of your microwave oven…  Get plastics and aluminum out of your kitchen, starting with anything that gets heated up or cooked with.  Switch to toxin-free personal care, household, and outdoor products  Eat diverse, living, wild microbes and microbial spores (from wild, biodynamic, and organic foods, in that order) to keep replacing microbes inevitably thwarted by current environmental hazards! https://youtu.be/AS1gQgnUf5A Dr. Mercola interviews Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
  62. 62. Energize, Don’t Drain Gathering Style Draining: Fear-based Energizing: Trust-Based Life is… a test (most people fail) a journey (everyone learns) Appraising others… Blanket praise and blame Specific appreciation, reflection Empowerment… Power-over, threat, control Self-trust, question, dialogue Communication… Argue, compete, get ranked Challenge, demonstrate, stimulate Process… Success vs. mistake, failure, flawed Gain vs. assess, evaluate, deconstruct Understanding… Not ok to ‘not know’ Important to ‘not know’ Succeeding… One winner, many losers Win/win for all affected / involved Ethic… Either/ Or Both/ Andwww.LivingRoomContext.org
  63. 63. No One Is At Fault  Corporate interests pushing toxic lifestyles since WW1  Media owned by corporate interests (truth suppressed)  Farmers & consumers under high stress & financial strain We’ve all been “sold”…
  64. 64. Start with “What Do You Want?”  I want to be healthy and strong, with no chronic complaints  I want to KNOW I did the best I could with what I knew in the past, even if I know better now.  I want to make changes in a way that makes sense for me, my family, my workplace.  I want to be respected for how I am right now, AND have respectful help making the changes that are right for me.  I want to feel empowered, not out-competed or argued.  I want it to be ok with others for me to learn as I go.
  65. 65. Do You Want to Have Conversations that Reverse Inflammation?  Presentation Slides will be posted on SlideShare.net, and findable on Jackie’s Linked In profile at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/autismturnaround/  Handout with Talking Points & Links to Research: Sign-up Sheet at Front
