We get to rebuild the world that we want to live in and we will. We'll start by doing that in our own communities. As scary and uncomfortable as that feels, we were born for this day and we get to actually create the world that you and I have been talking about and envisioning for so many years. - Leslie Manookian

Wellness + Wisdom Episode 443

President and Founder of the Health Freedom Defense Fund as well as Award-winning Filmmaker of The Greater Good, Leslie Manookian, shares how companies make statistics favor their financial goals, unpacks the spiritual and informational war that is happening right now, explains the misuse of medical interventions, and provides information for what you can do right now for the right to bodily autonomy.

How much do you know about health freedom laws? Do you know what medical providers and government officials are allowed and not allowed to do when it comes to bodily autonomy?

Leslie Manookian returns this week to share how the Health Freedom Defense Fund is helping people all across the nation.

PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented.

Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year.

The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients.

Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy.

PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks

Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier.

Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended... on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s.

Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.

Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

Power Quotes From The Show

The Ongoing Spiritual War

"We are in a spiritual and informational war; it's just that most people don't realize it because no shots have been fired in this country. The spiritual war is between those who believe that you're nothing more than a bag of bones and those who believe, like you and I do, that we're much greater, more powerful, and more important beings than that. I personally believe that we are individual points of consciousness; spiritual beings having a physical experience here on this planet." - Leslie Manookian


Globalism is the Problem, Localism is the Solution

"We have to lead with love. My new mantra is, 'Globalism is the problem, localism is the solution.' When I say that, what I mean is that we need to come together and build, strengthen, fortify, and reclaim our communities. We must reclaim them from the powers that are trying to centralize them under a one world's government. That means doing everything you can to develop a local food system, a true healthcare - not sickcare - system, and even create a local currency."  - Leslie Manookian


How to Live Life Well in 2022

"Part of our modern-day crisis is that people are waking up and realizing that maybe they're not happy with what they're doing with their lives. They don't want to be mindless robots; they want to be something else and I think that is really critical. You have to do something that actually fulfills and inspires you; I don't think you can be well unless you are doing that. Second, I think you have to keep working on yourself; whether it's your anxiety or your anger to the point that you recognize your behavior patterns and take action to change. Lastly; you have to have community. You need that support system when you face events like the ones since 2020." - Leslie Manookian
