Fridays Reconditioned with Lauren Vaknine

Ep. 40 – SEED SISTAS Pt 2 – Kitchen Witchery with Herbalism

from Reconditioned with Lauren Vaknine | Published 4/2/2021

In the second part of our series on herbalism, I speak with the other half of the Seed Sistas – Karen Lawton, all about kitchen witchery.   I honestly LOVED every minute of recording this episode. Karen and I delved into the subjects of healing with food; how preventative healthcare should be the foremost mode of healthcare and how it begins in the kitchen; which herbs we can grow at home and how; about how to get started with foraging; about how food and herbs support immune and digestive function; and how our ancestors and our ancestral line play a vital role in what we eat, how we eat, and how our bodies respond to food.   If you’re in any way interested in a holistic approach to living, eating and parenting, and have even a vague interest in herbalism, herbs and plants, this episode will offer so much value for you.   Products discussed: Sensory Herbal Handbook Transition Towns Organiclea Cooperative Eat Weeds by Robin Harford Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel   You can find the Seed Sistas on their website where you can buy their book, take their courses and get involved in their incredible social enterprises.

Om Podcasten

Ever felt overwhelmed by the amount of conflicting information when it comes to health and growth? Host Lauren Vaknine created the Reconditioned Podcast as a way to ensure that EVERYONE has easy and free access to information that will help them live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives. After being diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis aged 2, Lauren was wheelchair-bound by 18. After more than a decade immersed in intensive self-study, learning everything there was to learn about the human body and mind, Lauren finally reconditioned herself back to wellness and is now a fully able-bodied business woman, podcast host and mum of 2. She's now a health writer and leading coach in the fields of wellness, mindset and transformation, in a quest to help others achieve the same, supposedly impossible goals. Lauren’s work looks at wellness not as a linear, new-age concept, but as the 4 modes of self – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – integrated into one, enabling us to reach our full health and happiness potential. Whether you are suffering from chronic illness, raising children in a world of conflicting information, you're an entrepreneur wanting to step into your purpose or you simply want to feel empowered and motivated to become the best version of yourself, tune in as Lauren and a host of expert guests uncover the most actionable ways to recondition ourselves back to wellness.
