Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with psychedelics advocate Michael Griswold. Michael Griswold is a survivor of deep-seated trauma, who has devoted himself to helping others heal from similar experiences. Michael's journey to healing began after he tragically lost his pregnant wife and unborn son in a car accident, leaving him consumed by grief and guilt for years. Despite trying various methods such as therapy, medication, yoga, and breathing techniques, Michael still felt like something was wrong with him, and that's when he turned to psychedelics.  During a Heroic Journey with LSD, Michael found the healing he had been searching for. He discovered that the love he had for his wife was both tragic and beautiful, and that his thoughts did not have to control his reality. This experience led him to a new understanding of life as a present experience, free from the endless stream of thoughts that had plagued him before.  Today, Michael is a passionate advocate for the healing power of psychedelics and offers a supplement that helps people suffering from depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Through his work, Michael seeks to spread awareness about the benefits of psychedelics, so that others can experience the same transformative healing that he did.

Ask Herbal Health Expert Susun Weed with guest Kim Kitchen

Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with Artist Kim Kitchen Kim Kitchen is a multidisciplinary artist working in audio and film as a result of a debilitating and transformative illness. She explores collective cultural understandings of the female body, its intersections with and presence within the natural world. This is evident through the inclusion of ritual in her work - particularly in To Re-convene // To Shoreline - which draws on her lifelong connection to the Primordial Mother, and to knowledge of her ancestral homelands of old Europe. This ongoing research and consciousness has deeply influenced her artistic practice, which has been largely tactile, focused on painting, sculpture, installation and performance. Currently, Kim engages her practice of critical inquiry of body/land relations and the self-reflexive relationship between ability and artistic production through largely multimedia approaches. With significant changes in mobility, old spaces become unknown insofar as the body must learn anew how to navigate through them. The familiar becomes unfamiliar: the body is tasked with relearning how to exist, reaching out in changed, renewed and ever-urgent ways through creativity. Kim's community activism is inclusive, celebratory, and exuberant. In contrast, her work is introspective, thoughtful, and prompts quiet reflection. Now more than ever, interdependence is fundamental for this disabled artist. Q & A topics in this episode include: Remedies for mosquitos  Goat's pipe Thyroid  Nourishing infusions

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
