Even if you’re not really into mushrooms, the fact is that you’re breathing in mushroom spores right now and these fungi play an enormous role in our lives and that of our planet. There are over 400 known medicinal mushrooms that are said to heal everything from gut health to cancer and apparently the oldest living thing on earth is a 2,000 plus year old, over 6,000 ton fungus in Oregon, USA.

I grew up on a farm and we ate lots of field mushrooms that I’d go and collect with my dad, which mum would later cook up with a whole piece of garlic to check whether or not they were poisonous, by observing if the garlic changed colour or not. But it wasn’t until I visited a friend in Italy that I was exposed to a huge array of wild culinary and medicinal mushrooms that I’d never seen or heard of, that his dad had foraged from the mountains close to their village which opened my mind to the world of fungi.

In this episode of TheEdTalks I chat with Tero Isokauppila, co-founder of medicinal mushroom company Four Sigmatic and our discussion delivers a wealth of knowledge on the benefits of various mushrooms, as well as how we can use them to sedate our kids naturally!

Remember to always consult your healthcare practitioner prior to consuming new types of food or supplements such as mushrooms.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why fungi are so important for plants, humans and the planet
  • What Mycoremediation is and how it can play a part in reducing toxins
  • How oyster mushrooms can suck up diesel fuel
  • What led Anglo Saxons to be known as mushroom racists
  • The difference between medicinal and culinary mushrooms
  • The energy boosting effects of cordyceps
  • Why reishi mushrooms may be a better natural alternative to help you sleep
  • Why you should avoid consuming raw mushrooms
  • Which mushroom may actually help with candida
  • Why you should go organic with mushrooms when possible
  • What things to look for when buying mushrooms and supplemental products
  • A great mushroom to help reduce stress and sedate your kids
  • Tero’s general rules when choosing supplements, superfoods, wholefoods and fungi
  • Three ways that Tero suggests to help you feel more energized.

Life has its ups and downs and a way many of us try to alleviate the downs is through the incidental use of sugar. For some of us it might be a chocolate bar or for me it used to be ice cream – mmm, sweet delicious ice cream. But then I got smart and turned to healthier options like fruit juice, but uh oh, that has nearly thesame amount of sugar as a can of coca cola, over 6 teaspoons! Ok, what about a Yoghurt Sesame snap (I used to love those snacks)? No way - that has more sugar than a two serve of tim tams, over 4 teaspoons!! Now here’s one for you parents out there that I saw at my son’s daycare; Yoplait Petit squeezie for 6mths+ containing healthy calcium for bone growth. Shockingly it has over 2 teaspoons of added sugar. This is when I knew something needs to be done to educate us and that is exactly why I interviewed world renowned actor, director and self experimenter of the award winning documentary “That Sugar Film”, Damon Gameau. In this episode of TheEdTalks Damon sheds some light on the sticky world of sugar and how his self experimentation almost caused irreversible damage to his body and what we can do to try and reverse some of the seriously damaging and energy draining side effects of having excess refined sugar in our diets.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How the love for a partner can change your health destiny
  • How many equivalent teaspoons of sugar people are consuming per day - very alarmingly
  • How many teaspoons of added sugar is recommended for optimal health
  • Five key sugars found in nature
  • What is fructose and why it is so damaging to our bodies
  • Why regular consumption of fruit juice can cause serious health issues
  • A way to improve your life if you have Type 2 diabetes
  • If fatty liver disease can be reversed
  • How to reduce your sugar consumption
  • What are the best replacements fir refined sugar
  • How clever marketing is used to confuse us about sugar and health risks
  • 3 tips to Feel Energized Again and be healthy and happy

Raw milk is a natural, highly nutritious whole food that unfortunately is not available legally for many people around the world. Why? Well the big reason is because milk is prone to contamination by bacteria (good and bad) from cows and the environment, that could cause severe illness in humans. But, what if quality controlled and regulated food handling standards and production processes were put in place at dairies to ensure a premium, safe product was produced? And what if the farmer had an open policy and educated the public and other farmers about their processes and procedures?

Well that is what Organic Pastures Dairy has been doing in the state of California since the early 2000's with great success for the benefit of both them and consumers.

In this episode of TheEdTalks we have an informative discussion with inspirational founder and CEO Mark McAfee. He’s an internationally recognized expert in raw milk safety and production, hailing from an experienced background as a medical educator and is truly passionate about whole food nutrition and its importance in feeling energized and being healthy and happy.

Tweet: Raw milk can be produced and consumed safely. Dairy expert Mark McAfee explains how in Ep14.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • The rationale why you would want to consume raw milk
  • Why raw milk is considered a whole food
  • The complex differences between pasturized and raw milks
  • The best way to nourish growing children
  • Illnesses related to raw and pasteurized milks
  • How to easily test if the milk you brought is of a high quality or not
  • Questions you can ask farmers to ensure you are getting a high quality product
  • What causes raw milks to taste so different
  • Why raw milk isn’t currently widely accepted
  • Foods to avoid in supermarkets
  • 3 tips to feel energized again.
