Dr. Ed Bauman has been at the forefront of the holistic health and nutrition renaissance for the past 50 years.

Dr. B literally learned nutrition from the ground up by starting in the soil as an organic farmer.

In our conversation, Dr. B discusses how compromised our food systems have become and why there is such a great need to go back and play in the dirt, produce and eat local, community-based food. We dive deep into ways to be well by using the 5 Wellness Practices: Eating for Health, Joyful Movement, Mindfulness, Healing Relationships and Soulful Service.

  • All the foods are powerful and nourishing—animal foods, vegetable foods, dairy food. They've just been compromised. Unfortunately, the industry for over a hundred years now has been dumping poison on the fields that have really screwed up the food system, which is a big contributor to disease patterns. - Dr. Ed Bauman
  • I'm usually not playing on the fear theme, but playing on the we-can-do-it theme. We are part of a community. We are part of nature. We are part of our surroundings. - Dr. Ed Bauman
  • We have to relax and open up about the food experiences around us. We love to eat good food and we love to eat in peaceful settings. So rather than what you eat, it's how you eat, where you eat, and with whom you eat. The social, environmental, and spiritual realities are big. So eating is a mindful experience. - Dr. Ed Bauman
  • The most important thing is to build strength and to build hardiness and to eat strengthening foods. - Dr. Ed Bauman
