Can Mushrooms, Fungi and Mycelium help save the Honeybees?

Paul Stamets loving the bees!
Why are bees so important? Bees pollinate 80% of the world’s plants including 90 different food crops. Recently a girlfriend messaged me and asked for a resource to have some honeybees relocated that had taken up residence in her home. I was so excited that she was willing to take the time to find a responsible company that would humanly move them to a safer environment for everyone concerned. The beekeepers came and did their job, leaving behind a delicious gift of fresh honey for the family. When people take these small mindful actions, everyone wins.

How Grounded Are You?

Several years ago when I was producing Whole Children, Whole Planet, a fellow author (Martin Zucker) approached me with a book, a concept, and a group of products he wanted me to review, all of which sounded quite interesting. However, because I was so busy working on the show I really didn't have time to review the information, but I did begin using one of the products right away. He suggested that just by sitting on this little mat or placing my feet on it (preferably with bare skin), I would become more grounded. And when you are working 14 hours a day, the thought of a little more grounding sounded pretty good.

While the natural remedies for teething related symptoms haven’t changed much, there certainly are many new oral health care products on your store shelves today. The question is, which ones are truly natural, toxic free and effective?

Exploring A New Approach
Breast Cancer Awareness

Even though October is the official month of Breast Cancer Awareness (and we’re well into November now), I believe it’s a subject that we can all continue to learn about anytime of the year. A report published in The Lancet medical journal on November 1, 2016, reveals that the number of women diagnosed with breast cancer could (almost) double from 1.7 million in 2015 to 3.2 million a year by 2030.

I personally, am about a decade past midlife, and yet I’ve never had a mammogram. Many doctors and woman might think of this lack of action on my part as highly irresponsible. However, I am diligent about conducting my own manual breast exams and monitoring my overall breast health through an annual, or biannual thermal breast screening called Thermography.
