There are things we know, things we don't know, and things we don't know we don't know. The information on this page will fall into the third category for most people. This means that if you digest all the following information, many new doorways of opportunity will be opened for you - to attain a greater level of health, and to begin living a more meaningful life.
But the cow isn't going to milk itself. As with anything in life, you have to work for it. In this case, the work involves spending some time watching the videos on this page. Try bookmarking it and use it instead of netflix for a month or so until you've consumed every single video.
The purpose of this videos page is to give you the knowledge you need to lay the foundations for a rich and fulfilling life, surrounded by a wonderful community of people and loving family. Informing yourself is step one. Step two will be for you to formulate a plan based on that knowledge, then take action and execute your plan.

If you're trying to understand which foods are better than others, or how to prevent or reverse disease, the greatest thing you can do for yourself is quit pretending you have all the answers, and begin looking at health and nutrition through the lens of energy metabolism.
If your metabolic rate is high, you will experience none of the negative symptoms that represent disease. And therefore, eating foods which raise your metabolic rate is the answer to the age-old question of "which foods are healthy and which foods aren't?"
Below is a collection of some of my own work, and some of the greatest researchers in the field who can help reshape your thinking, as well as your dietary and lifestyle choices based on human physiology and how the body actually works.
“Root canal-treated teeth are all infected and highly toxic."
- Dr Thomas Levy
No matter how "optimal" your diet, exercise program, or lifestyle is, if you have an infected root canal, a cavitation, or mercury fillings, your health will suffer. Understanding the risks associated with various mainstream dental procedures and dental materials is the absolute first step in disease prevention, recovery or achieving an overall greater state of health.
Below you'll learn the perspectives of the greatest dental scientists as well as holistic and biomimetic dentists in the world, including the great Dr Hal Huggins, who began advocating against the use of mercury amalgam fillings way back in the 1970s. At the end of this section, I'll put a link for you to find a holistic dentist near you if you decide to have your amalgams safely removed, and/or want to begin receiving holistic dental treatment.

FIND A DENTIST
Want to find a holistic dentist in your area? Click the following link and use their search feature. Note: These dentists are not perfect, but they understand the dangers of mercury and root canals. Be vigilant and ask questions.
DENTAL MATERIAL COMPATABILITY TEST
Need some dental fillings or implants? In order to make sure you're using the safest possible dental material for you, you'll need to get a dental material compatability test. However, chances are your holistic dentist is not even aware of this testing, so you're going to have to pickup a kit, have blood drawn, and complete the test yourself. Once done, tell your dentist to use the material that was deemed the safest for you.
"The family is both the fundamental unit of society as well as the root of culture. It ... is a perpetual source of encouragement, advocacy, assurance, and emotional refueling that empowers a child to venture with confidence into the greater world and to become all that he can be."
- Marianne Neifert, Dr. Mom's Parenting Guide
If we wish to create a lasting culture and not lose our souls in the machine that's being built around us, our primary focus must be maintaining the family unit, and raising the healthiest children possible. In order to do so, the reality we must come to terms with, is that our current medical system inflicts horrific damage on both the mother and her babies, both before and after birth.
WARNING: The following information is heavy, but essential, so please watch. Once we truly understand what this world is doing to our children, we can begin to protect our young from harm, so that they may they grow up strong and healthy.
“This is not a moral issue, it’s not a spiritual issue, it’s not a political issue, it is a logical issue.”
- Michael Reynolds, founder of Earthships
Modern housing is made as cheaply as possible, using the lowest quality materials as possible, and by people who don't care one bit about the quality of your home. Furthermore, when living in these homes, our very survival is entirely dependent on the fragile and centralized electricity, water and food systems that make our lives possible. When the electricity goes out, that home instantly becomes uninhabitable.
Furthermore, the electricity that powers an "on-grid" home costs money and pollutes the environment; the water that comes from your tap has thousands of different poisons in it; and every single bite of conventionally produced food in your grocery store has poison in it. Why put up with such poor quality conditions when we have better options?
The ultimate form of human habitation is one that generates its own power, collects and purifies the water which falls freely from the sky, and even produces some of the food we need to survive. When living in a home like this, your life becomes resilient: no matter what happens in the world, you have everything you need to survive, and therefore have nothing to worry about.
There are many types of sustainable architecture, some better than others. Below is a list of video tours of the greatest types of architecture ever developed. I recommend you get familiar with each type, and then make it your goal to build one yourself on a plot of land where you can begin growing your own food, and begin living a sustainable, resilient life.

“We have the potential to enhance the planet. Trees enhance the planet. People could go further. We could make the Earth sing.”
- Michael Reynolds
Every bite of food we eat that's produced using industrial agriculture poisons our bodies and also our environment. We are 100% responsible for the impact the food that we eat has on our environment. And the good news is, we have the power to turn that impact into a positive one.
As friend and Permaculture Engineer Rob Avis has said, one of the biggest (and most dangerous) myths in the world today is that human beings are inherently destructive. The reality is, if we change the way we are living and the type of agriculture we support, we can be as positive as we are negative. The choice is up to each one of us.
The purpose of the collection of videos below is to help you understand the specifics of industrial agriculture, and the negative impact it has on our health and environment, as well as the specifics about regenerative agriculture (aka permaculture), and why these methods of food production have a positive impact on our health and environment.
Finally, in hopes of inspiring a new generation of farmers, I've added an anthology of regenerative farm tour videos, run by people living rich lives while making a fine living producing food using Regenerative Agriculture and Permaculture methods. These will allow you to see what is possible in the way of profitable enterprises that you can begin on your farm; if it works for them, it can work for you.
If you have no interest in becoming a farmer, but still wish to be a force for good in this world, you can begin by buying some or all of your food directly from local farms that utilize regenerative agricultural practises. To find a farmer near you, google regenerative farm (or permaculture farm, or organic farm), or check out the website eatwild.com.
LIVING THE DREAM
“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple... The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens.
- Bill Mollison, founder of Permaculture
If you've made it this far down the page then you...
- Have an understanding of health from the physiological perspective of metabolism
- Know which dental procedures are hazardous to your health, how to avoid them, and how to correct the issue if you've already received them
- Know the potential dangers associated with hospital birth and how to avoid them for a healthier baby
- Understand that many types of sustainable architecture exist, which are far more efficient, resilient, ecologically sound than conventional housing - and they can completely eliminate your monthly utility bills and be the foundation for a better life
- Understand that foods produced using permaculture or regenerative agriculture methods actually IMPROVE the environment, rather than destroy it - and how to begin supporting regenerative family farms today.
In this final section, you'll find videos of people and families who have "put it all together" and are doing what I call living the dream. The people in the videos below are shining examples of what it means to live in the most anti-fragile way possible: on an efficiently-designed homestead, in an efficiently-designed home, producing their own food regeneratively, collecting and purifying their own rainwater, generating their own electricity, and birthing children at home with the aid of a midwife.
I've also included some of the various features you might want to add to your homestead, like a natural swimming pool, a passive solar greenhouse, pastured poultry, how to raise a family cow for nutritious raw dairy, etc.
I hope these videos inspire you to dream up a vision of your future and begin living it.
