Friday, May 11, 2018, 10:14 PM

Executive Summary

I usually shy away from being overly directive, preferring to arm folks with information and then let each reader figure out what to prioritize given their specific personal situation. The only exception to this is when I send out an Alert in response to a spiking threat level -- when I'm personally taking action such as making major changes to my investmen portfolio, topping off my car's gas tanks, pulling more cash from the bank, etc.

But the recent Peak Prosperity seminar that just took place in Sebastopol CA from May 4-6, 2018 was a fantastic showcase of 'regenerative' options, many of which make sense for everyone.

In particular, there were four that stood out for me as essential to anyone concerned about the future who wants to protect their well-being and be part of the solution society needs.

These steps are implementable and realistic for nearly everyone. And their benefits far outweigh the efforts to put them in place.

So what are they?

Most Limits Exist Only In Our Minds

Learn how to break beyond them
Friday, March 9, 2018, 8:26 PM

Roger Bannister died last week.

Even if you don't recognize his name, you're aware of his legacy: he was the first human to run a mile in under 4 minutes.

More than simply breaking a record, Roger Bannister's greater legacy was proving to the world that limits are largely set by the mind. When we fail (or more accurately put, fail to try hard enough), it's often because we believe we can't succeed.

Bannister's example showed us that by changing our mindset -- by being open-minded to success -- we can change our universe of potential outcomes. The 'impossible' becomes possible. » Read more

Stepping Way Out Of The Comfort Zone

Adam takes a big risk for charity
Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 9:21 AM

Most people have nightmares about finding themselves onstage in front of an audience with no idea what they're doing. Perhaps an even worse fear is finding yourself naked (or nearly so) in public.

Mash those two phobias together and you pretty much get how last weekend went for me. » Read more

Robb Wolf: Wired To Eat

Rewiring our diet for better health
Monday, March 20, 2017, 12:14 PM

As human animals, our genetic programming pushes us to optimize caloric intake with the minimal amount of effort expended. The food industry knows this, and has for decades been developing "foods" scientifically engineered to appeal to that evolutionary drive. That result? An explosion in obesity, chronic health conditions like diabetes, and a society shamed by itself.

Robb Wolf's guidance revolves around working with, not against, our primal wiring. Eating more, but of the fuel our body truly needs, is much better than merely eating less of the processed gunk sold to us in most aisles of the grocery store. » Read more

Dave Murphy - Glyphosate: Unsafe On Any Plate

Are we being fed poison for profit?
Sunday, January 1, 2017, 2:16 PM

In November, a very concerning report -- Glyphosate: Unsafe On Any Plate -- was released by The Detox Project and Food Democracy Now!, raising the alarm of the high levels of glyphosate in the US food supply and the (deliberate?) low levels of awareness of its associated health risks.

Dave Murphy, executive director of Food Democracy Now!, joins us this week to explain the finding of this new report on the world's most-used herbicide (more commonly known by its retail brand: Roundup). As happened in past decades with the alcohol and tobacco industries, there's compelling evidence that profits have taken a priority over consumer safety -- and as public health concerns are being raised, Big Ag is circling its wagons and attacking the questioners rather than embracing open scrutiny.

Are we being poisoned in the pursuit of profit? » Read more

Why We're So Unhealthy

Our system makes & keeps us sick
Friday, April 29, 2016, 7:31 PM

I was fortunate to attend a permaculture conference, 'Better Soil, Better Food...A Better World' at Tara Firma Farms in Petaluma, California this past weekend that Adam Taggart (co-founder of Peak Prosperity) was responsible for producing. Joel Salatin (author of nine books, including Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal: War Stories from the Local Food Front and head farmer at Polyface Farms, Virginia), Paul Kaiser (Singing Frogs Farm, Sonoma, California), Toby Hemenway (author of Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture, 2nd Edition), and Robb Wolf (author of The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet) were on hand to explain the connections between the way our food is grown, processed and distributed and our ill-health.

Though these connections are common sense—we all know about garbage in, garbage out—the linkage between our extractive, monoculture agriculture and all the other subsystems of food and health remains opaque to most Americans. » Read more
