How to Heat Your Home and Lower Your Energy Bill—Toxic Free

My guest today is Paul Wheaton, who is well-known in Permaculture circles. We did a such a great show about Compact Fluorescent Lights May Save Energy but Can Harm Your Health that I invited him back in the middle of cold winter to talk about how we can heat our homes. Will be talking about how a 40 watt incandescent light bulb helped him save $900 on electricity, plus an extremely efficient wood heater you can build yourself, and a type of building that doesn’t need heat at all. Paul believes, as I do, that we shouldn’t do something toxic to achieve some other goal, but rather find a solution that supports the entire ecosystem, including the humans. So today we’re going to talk about how conventional heating methods can be toxic, and what else you can do to heat your home and save energy (and lower your energy bill) that are toxic-free.,,

During his sixteen years with the Ecology Center he has spearheaded numerous chemicals policy market campaigns, co-authored multiple peer-reviewed articles on toxics in consumer products, pioneered citizen science in the use of x-ray fluorescence technology for toxics testing in products, and developed the now internationally recognized product chemistry disclosure project and its extensive website of robust advocacy resources and the product testing results of more than 100,000 products. |

Vaccines: Harmful or Necessary?

Pamela SeefeldMy guest today is Pamela Seefeld, a registered pharmacist who prefers to dispense medicinal plants and other natural substances instead of prescription drugs.

We’ll discuss the dangers and find out when and if they should be used. Pamela is a 1990 graduate of the University of Florida College of Pharmacy, where she studied Pharmacognosy (the study of medicines derived from plants and other natural sources). She has worked as an integrative pharmacist teaching physicians, pharmacists and the general public about the proper use of botanicals.

She is also Government Liaison for The American Academy of Environmental Medicine and Medical Director of The Environmental Health Center of Martha’s Vineyard. We’ll be talking about degrees of environmental illness, how to recognize it, and what to do to orevent and recover from environmental illnesses. Dr. Nagy graduated Magna Cum Laude from The University of Pennsylvania and then from Cornell Medical College in 1986. After Emergency Medicine residency in NYC she practiced in Los Angeles until becoming severely ill–as a result of a complex medical condition known as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or Environmental Illness. Her journey of discovery led her to learn about the field of Environmental Medicine and it’s focus on finding the causes of disease including genetic, hormonal, nutritional, allergic, and environmental factors. Listening to physicians and other people who have developed severe Environmental Illness is the first step towards helping the 75 million people in the country with various health issues, including autoimmunity, autism, to their environments.
