Today, Forrest is a teacher of meditation and has started meditation gatherings at each of the schools that he has taught at during his over decade long run as a community college professor.

Ask Herbal Health Expert Susun Weed and guest, Dr. Ana Lups

Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal questions followed by a 30 minute interview with her guest, Dr. Ana Lups. Dr Anna Lups has been a physician in Hudson NY since 1967.   Born a few years before WWII in the Netherlands, her family immigrated to South-Africa in 1948. She received her High School diploma and medical degree in Pretoria SA. Dr. Lups started specialization in Internal Medicine as an immigrant to USA in 1963. She moved to rural NY State (Hillsdale, Columbia County) in 1967 to open a family practice as a single mother. In 1978, at the age of 42,  a lack of wholistic viewpoints regarding healing made her choose an alternative branch in her practice. Dr. Lups believes our aim towards healing must incorporate the earth, the plant, and the human being. Restoring the balance when exposed to illness must incorporate the vitality that nature can still provide.   more COVID-19 vaccine discussionregular caller health update re: self love affirmations and building core strengthchild "picky-eaters"flourideumbilical & inguinal hernia repairherbs to help reduce blood pressuregrandparenting responsibilities

Ask Herbal Health Expert Susun Weed & Elder Midwife Rev Barbara Grace

Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions follwed by a 30 minute interview with Rev Barbara Grace. Creator and Keeper of the Elder Midwife History Gathering Project. From a very young age, Barbara Grace was a midwife. “Innately I knew that the power of touch and being a quiet witness could heal and calm.  At births with all species, and in all situations.” Graduating from seminary school at 19, Rev. Grace went on to speak all over North America about hands on healing and developing our own innate intuition. Then in the late ‘70’s she began her apprentice training with a traditional midwife, to become a midwife herself.  Always a change-maker in the often oppositional worlds of our personal human rights and the laws of the legal system, she has consistently made a stand for choice, even when she became an ‘outlaw’ in the process! Rev. Grace is mom to 3 grown sons and “Morai” (Irish for ‘grandmother’) to 6 grand-darlings. A life-long advocate of gentle birthing and human rights in childbirth, she has now created the Elder Midwife History Gathering project. Please learn more about this important project at: http://www.facebook.com/eldermidwifehistorygathering this episode Q&A includes: • fertility, hormones and leaving well enough alone... • cbds and extracting cannabidiol... • oak bark sitz baths- astringent, anti infective, gets rid of all kinds of infection- very tannic and staining.. • bacterial vaginosis- yarrow and lots of information in 'Down There'.. • Hypericum and motherwort- are they habbit forming?
