When formulating the recipe of the chaga rootbeer elixir many moons ago, one thing that was my absolute obsession was to move away people away from the model of pill-popping and to have them enter the era of alchemy, where everyone takes creation into their own hands.
This was one of the biggest advances in my own journey of evolving my health and life, when I stopped taking so many nutritional supplements, and got deeply into eating/drinking my nutrition.
Your body absorbs liquid and food forms of nutritional medicine far easier then poppin pills and supplements because it's a form of nutrition that's the base-level of what our bodies are built for.
By mixing and combining ingredients together to create your own elixirs, tonics, culinary meals, smoothies, you add an element that is uniquely your own into the end result. You add the essence of yourself, your preferences and your own magic.
Being among these Californian mountains on a hike at dusk with the starlight, moonshine and cleansing winds ringing through ridges is so peaceful.
It really lets thoughts flow smooth and free.
These are the times, when out in nature that really allow you to get a bird’s eye perspective on what’s working in your life vs. what’s not.
