Holistic Chiropractic Care: Creating Alignment in a Misaligned World

28May

Most of us live in an urban environment, where we sit at our desks and drive in our cars. Most of us have a fairly sedentary lifestyle, and that may have consequences to our overall physique, our posture, and consequently can lead to subluxations, misalignments in the body in the form of a vertebra out of position, or a joint being overly stressed. But there is a treatment, the beautiful practice of chiropractic care. We are speaking with a Doctor of Chiropractic to learn what the treatment does and how it works, and what we can do to support overall holistic health.

Farmland Ecology: The Relationship Between Animals, Soil and Trees

21May

In Nature, everything supports and feeds off of one another. There is no waste, only relationships. It’s a system, an endless web of life and connections. Organic farms know the strength of this system and actively cultivate it, by inviting Nature onto the farm and seeing the farm as a part of the overall ecology of the place. This episode is about connections between animals, soil, and trees, and what one expert has discovered. The system is called Silvopasture. What's that? Tune in to find out.

Healing Courage: Support for Survivors of Sexual Violence

14May

Since the #metoo movement began last year, the topic of sexual violence has finally become a part of our public focus. Today we want to dive deeper into this much-needed conversation. We are speaking with a leader in this movement, a woman that will help us understand the forms of sexual violence, what the individual path of healing from such trauma often looks like, the importance of identifying as a survivor rather than a victim, and what support is available for survivors. And we won’t stop there. Host Helge Hellberg feels strongly that this conversation is not a topic shared just amongst women, but the conversation must include men, as well.

How can we expand the current conversation and make sure it is not simply a media focus for a few months, but will stay as an ongoing theme about the healing that needs to happen in our society? Tune in and be a part of this conversation.
