If you found me and you’re reading this, I’m guessing we have a lot in common. Who knew 25 years ago that coaches, not doctors, would be the ones giving patients a prescription to sustain healthy habits, as well as the ones holding you accountable to healing your body and mind naturally? After my psychedelic-awakening in 2014 I was driven to dive deeper down the rabbit hole into the world of nutrition, and in 2017 enrolled into the world’s largest Nutrition School. Today I hold two masters and 3 additional certifications in nutrition, hormone health and coaching. I also spent over a decade in the hospitality, tourism industry while on my own time practicing herbology and permaculture.
In this article you will find 10 awesome ways my tribe and I used the sap from maple and birch trees this spring. As an unschooling mom I take every opportunity to get in nature, get curious and have fun with my son. This year we have the opportunity to build a permaculture garden and forage food on 300 acres along the Canadian Shield – because we have an internet connection, we also have the opportunity to share our journey with you.
Fluoride dangers are real in fact these two (Harvard International, National Library of Medicine) studies can prove that it is in fact a neurotoxin which should be avoided at all cost. Fluoride can damage health and fertility, destroy bones and teeth, and cause early puberty in children. It has been linked to thyroid issues, bone damage, arthritis, lower IQ, brain damage, alzheimer’s, destroying the male reproductive system and it is poison. In fact on toothpaste labels it says to call poison control if ingested.
This is such a simple, filling and uplifting meal. It has everything, including the rainbow and even the kids will enjoy it. Simply chop and massage your kale with olive oil and Himalayan sea salt. Add some red onion, carrot, yellow pepper, broccoli, raisins, purple garlic, cooked rice/quinoa, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds and mix it all up.

Burdock has been an important botanical in Western folk herbalism and traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The root, leaf, and seed are used to make medicine. In tea or tincture Burdock can increase urine flow, kill germs, reduce fever, and “purify” their blood. Other times we apply burdock directly to the skin for wrinkles, dry skin (ichthyosis), acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
You can really do whatever you want with this recipe but my guideline is to include the rainbow. Different colored foods are nature’s way of showing us which essential nutrients can be found in each food as well as which bodily functions they assist.
