"…You don't inhabit an environment that is a thousand miles away where you might be getting your news. You don't inhabit even a county away or a state away or province away. Microclimates are very real, and understanding where you are and what's going on in your local environment is just so critical. And it's interesting.…"

Sounds so trite and woo-woo but it’s so true! Interaction, contact and time in nature are critical to health.

"…I don't know where she came up with this, but apparently she's heard of this too. She said you should walk in the morning barefoot on grass and it'll go a long way in helping your eyesight remain healthy. These are grandmother's tales passed to us.…"

"…We should definitely talk more maybe about interactions with wild animals as well, because I think that we're biophilic and we are so drawn to these interactions with plants and animals, with or surroundings, and they're so necessary. So I would love to further the conversation on that.…"

"…You bring up something so, so important and so beautiful. My mother was a master herbalist, and, you know, she taught me a lot of very important things. But what's lost in our modern world so much, which is the wisdom that was passed down from generation upon generation upon generation of how to live on the Earth.…"

"…Jennifer, I so completely agree with you about lost knowledge. So ah, you know, I I since you said your mom is a master herbalist, I just wondered if you have any idea what some of the herbs refer to in this recipe that I'm putting a photo of refers to. So this is apparently Ben Franklin's recipe of how to delay your periods, right?…"

"…Hi, Jennifer. Thank you so much for this post because, I mean, one, it was so interesting to hear, like, all you have to say and like, what you know about, like, our connection to nature and what we should do, like, foraging and whatnot. That sounds like something that I'm definitely going to try and just start doing on hopefully a regular basis.…"

"…And they used to share they would call them receipts, and they would share them. The doctors would write them down, or the herbalists or conjure women midwives would write down their receipts and share them at that time, the 17, 1800. So we could do a whole other swell just on old herbal recipes. Maybe we should.…"

"…And those pressures don't include foraging and swimming in the river. So you have to make time for that. And it's hard sometimes. I wouldn't be down on yourself just knowing that this is a piece of your life that you want to incorporate and integrate more is enough. And go easy on yourself, because I think most of us are under many pressures and doing the best that we can.…"

"…I feel like I'm reading sort of a true crime novel, like getting to the point of understanding what is at the root of all this. It's just fascinating. I wish more books about health were written this way. It's so personal, but not to the point of like it's not not reading someone's deep journal. He knows that a reader is reading this and he writes it that way. It's just fantastic. I just want to thank you so much. It's.…"
