This Week's Most Popular Snapchat Story:
My boys and I went foraging in the forest for Ponderosa Pine, Red Root and Arrowleaf Balsamroot. We used the resin from the ponderosa and the red root in tea, then used the arrowleaf root in tea and the arrowleaf and red root leaves for a healing salve for burns, itches, stings, etc. (along with yarrow and plantain leaves)! This was followed by an epic 4th of July celebration! Follow me on Snapchat for more sneak peeks into my life, cool books I'm reading, biohacking tips, giveaways & more!

-The Nutrition Benefits of Camel's Milk
Colostrum is the life-giving fluid produced as a precursor to mother’s milk. It can be described as a brilliantly designed transfer system which basically “jump starts” your immune system. In addition to giving you a bulletproof immune system, healing a leaky gut and enhancing muscle repair, recovery and growth hormone formation, colostrum can completely eliminate gut issues in athletes during exercise if you load with it for about one to two weeks prior to hard and heavy exercise, such as an Ironman triathlon or marathon – especially if that exercise is in hot weather.
