In the full length video (Available in your Premium Access “Voices from the Underground”) we talk about the “drug war”, drug use by indigenous peoples for healing and cohesion, and the real underground… that being mushrooms and their role in soil. We dive deeply into the mainstream acceptance of psilocybin and the changing attitudes you’d never have expected years ago.

Physician, Educator and Activist
Enjoy this excerpt from our conversation with Zach Bush M.D., a physician, educator and activist who leads the charge in reviving the biodiversity of the microbiome of our guts and the soil. In the full length video (Available in your Premium Access “Voices from the Underground”) we dig deeply into the mirroring of the soil and our own microbiome, the mirroring of our approach to “germs” and “weeds”, the mirroring of big pharma and pesticides/gmo. How can we reconnect to the earth and in the process improve our microbiome and improve the help of our children dramatically? Mycelial networks, root balls of trees and the intelligent transfer of chemicals is mimicked in the human gut, so we can learn from the mushrooms. We find that Isolation (of cells) leads to disease, and isolation of humans leads to disease too. It’s a fascinating conversation full of information and inspiration.
