• THE POWER OF POLLINATORS

    PROVIDING HABITAT FOR NATURE’S HARDEST WORKERS
    The old “man’s best friend” adage may be in need of a serious reassessment. If you’re convinced that the family’s furry familiar may indeed be your most trusted ally, there’s another creature that you may wish to endow with this status. Largely unnoticed by most, and routinely violated by their human neighbors, the honey bee holds the future of mankind in its tiny tarsal claws … literally!

  • NEW BEGINNINGS

    Spring is more than a change in weather; the season of ‘new beginnings’ leaves its imprint on all dimensions. Here at Alfa Vedic, this Equinox signifies both a culmination and rebirth. We’ve had the winter months to settle into our new location, but now it’s back to work. Left behind were mature botanical gardens years in the making, but our present site on the remote south fork of the Smith River will sustain more agriculture amidst absolutely pristine surroundings.

  • ALFA VEDIC GARDENS

    It’s autumn here at the new Alfa Vedic Gardens, and we’re busy. Garden fences, and building construction have taken precedence over blogging and website development. Our recent transition northward has required all able hands, as we re-create and expand our farm-based business. Apologies, but we’ll soon be back with regularity and completely re-tooled.

  • CANNABIS

    We’ve been very, very busy here at ALFA VEDIC, but as some of the AV faithful have noted, curiously quiet. Now that it’s a done deal, I’ll spill the beans. We’ve moved, upgraded, expanded and retooled for the next level of operations. I’ll save the best for last, but let’s address the “why” factor first. Continue Reading

  • THE TEA OF IMMORTALITY

    Jia Gu Lan (pronounced Jow-Goo-Lan), the renown Tea of Immortality, has a very enthusiastic cult following for good reason. Medicinal herbs can be categorized in a number of ways, but in the final analysis they’ll take you in one of two directions. Cleanse or nurture.

  • THE ARTHRITIS SOLUTION

    Not dissimilar to most aging jocks my body speaks to me in ways that I’d prefer to ignore. Decades of full contact sports seemed like a good idea at the time, but in hindsight … not so much. But what about the majority of normal golden agers who practiced superior discernment by avoiding unnecessary collisions, and still live with aching joints? Continue Reading

  • CHOLESTEROL REDUX

    One might consider approaching lifestyle strategies 180° contrary to convention. If the media suggests one thing believe the opposite … especially pragmatic advice for one in the unfortunate proximity of a pharmaceutical infomercial. It’s about shareholders and herd culling, not your health. Social engineering requires a firm hold on the two primary reins of control … finance and medicine. Approaching 40 years in the business, I’ve learned much about the latter.

  • Happy 2016

    As a child in the 50’s I often fantasized about the possibility of living in the year 2000 … all of the ills of the world would be solved, and we would be real life Jetson’s in a futuristic utopia. So what happened?!

  • ANALOG NUTRITION

    This entry is inspired by a recent conversation I heard between my favorite radio host, John B. Wells, and Dr. Darrell Hamamoto, professor at UC Davis. John B. and Dr. Darrell deftly echoed some of my own long-held sentiments concerning the present state of the dis-union. I’d like to further improvise off their riff, and hopefully, with their blessing, in the direction of my expertise … Biological Terrain Medicine.

  • THE SECRET TO LIVING A LONG, HAPPY LIFE

    In this post I will reveal the highly coveted secret to living long, happy and healthy. Some may suggest it’s about lengthening DNA telomeres with Astragalus concentrate, or a different longevity herb. Photon therapy? A new meditation practice perhaps? Nope!

    Do any of the above have merit? Absolutely! They can be useful adjuncts, but they can also distract from the real task at hand. Such practices require knowledge … tools work much better in the hands of a craftsman. No, I’m not alluding to a more advanced information base relative to nutrition, and lifestyle. Information shouldn’t be confused with knowledge.

  • Walter Russell A CONSPIRACY OF SCIENCE

    I’ve been a conspiracy buff for most of my life … it’s not so much a penchant for the unconventional, as it is my incredulity with the concept of co-incidence. I don’t know about you, but when things occur in my world it’s connected to something that I made happen … consciously, or otherwise!

    The Universe has a plan, and we’re co-conspirators … creators if you will. I believe in Intelligence, not random events besting infinitesimal odds. I share these beliefs with an exceptional group of pedigreed thinkers … Plato, Bacon and Steiner for starters. Naturalists from every culture have always observed The Plan. The more one unplugs the more apparent it becomes.
