The aroma of hot black cherry tea is all the inspiration I need to get motivated! I'm in #goalgetter mode thanks to my gurl @randirossario author of this AMAZING workbook (#Amazon ). As a social entrepreneur, I'm driven to improve the quality of life of others on my own terms and I have soooo many ideas!

Health must come first, in order to work, to play, to make love, to be part of the community, basic health needs must be met first.

For too long, the tobacco industry has taken time, health, and money away from Philadelphians. But this week, City Council voted to uphold regulations that will reduce the number of tobacco retailers in Philly - including retailers selling near schools and to kids. This is a victory for the health of all Philadelphians, and brings us one step closer to achieving health justice in all of our communities . .

Protecting Immigrant Families vigil in Chicago this evening 🙏 sharing here because this is a health issue. Policies such as the proposed changes to the public charge rule cause real harm to immigrants’ access to food resources, healthcare, education, and more, not to mention the impact of factors like stress and discrimination on health and wellbeing. I put a link in my bio where you can learn more and submit a public comment (please consider doing that between now and 12/10!) #protectingimmigrantfamilies
I read somewhere that we often read a book as a teen that stays with us for life and for me that book was “The Bell Jar.” Plath’s words echoed some of my feelings about the world, feelings I didn’t previously have language for in small town high school land. Last week, someone told me they loved “Dancing with Ghosts” and that my book made them think of a modern take on #thebelljar ♥️ “To the person in the bell jar, blank and stopped as a dead baby, the world itself is the bad dream. A bad dream. I remembered everything.” 📚 Footnote: I enjoy seeing the different covers of my favorite publications from different years and countries!
Yes!!!! @resilientfatgoddex Repost @ericaleonnutrition ・・・ If we continue to treat eating disorders by focusing on weight, we will only continue to perpetuate the very same weight-centric issues that we're trying to reverse in the first place. . #rdchat #RD2be #dietitian #radicaldietitian #eatingdisorders #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisordertreatment #virtualcounseling #intuitiveliving #intuituveeating #riotsnotdiets #bodyliberation #fatpositive #fatactivism #healthjustice #bodyrespect #health #nutritiontherapy

Martin Luther King, Jr., sought a middle ground between riots on the one hand and timid supplications for justice on the other. Combined organizing and legal strategies provide that. Advocates leave too much on the table when they address undefined “equity” and “policy” interests for "disadvantaged communities" without considering people are protected by civil rights laws.

Hi! I will be graduating from nursing school with my RN, BSN in 1.5 weeks.

@villagebirthintl is an incredible organization of doulas, midwives, and educators in Syracuse, NY and Uganda. Swipe to see more of their photos! This #GivingTuesday , they're doing a direct giving campaign - all donations go directly to providing services, not overhead. Paypal.me/villagebirthintl In Uganda, they have a mobile midwifery and prenatal care clinic that can see up to 70 people in a single day! But their truck is breaking down and they need to raise money for another. Here in Syracuse, most of their doulas have other full-time jobs and they are stretched thin. Additional funding would allow them to continue paying doulas what they deserve. 💜🤰🏽🤰🏾🤰🏻🤰🏿💜 . . . . . . . #comotheringforjustice #milesformothers #villagebirthintl #villagebirthinternational #reproductivehealth #reproductivejustice #reproductiverights #doula #midwife #midwifery #nurse #feminist #feminism #syracuse #uganda #globalhealth #publichealth #thisispublichealth #socialjustice #healthjustice #pregnant #pregnancy #birth #childbirth
“What you pay attention to grows.” We’ve been reflecting on this quote from @adriennemareebrown in ‘Emergent Strategy’ for weeks now. With the constant bombast of heartbreaking news, we’ve been recommitting to focus on the good that IS happening. The things we can do RIGHT HERE at THIS moment to build the 🌍 and communities that we want to live in. On giving Tuesday, we’re asking that you do the same. Please give to our year end giving campaign to support this work. Give to our friends at the Herbal Freedom School in their campaign to sponsor BIPOC through herbalism training (find their gofundme!). Send herbs to the border! Volunteer at the border. Donate to @nomoredeaths_nomasmuertes donate to @pvworkerscenter @herbalistswithoutborders or people who are change makers in your own neck of the woods. Focus on BUILDING what we want to GROW. Together we ARE committing and moving forward to the collective healing and liberation we dream about. #givingtuesday #valleygivingtuesday #radicalherbalism #peoplesmedicine #healthjustice #alternativemedicine #healingtuesday #socialjustice #emergentstrategy #herbalist #recovery

GRAHAM WESLEY. Foundations of Plant, Stone, and Embodied Medicine. Ethics. Endocrine Vitality. & More. • • • Hello, creatures! Let me tell you something of this dream coming true as I write. • • • { dwelling } was born up of years of anticipation, intention, and listening. A call from the plants more than anything else, the curriculum is an answer to the invitation from the world we live with to be in relationship. • • • I’m proud, excited, and full of gratitude to be building and breathing actual life into this school and all it will become. It’s my passion to create containers for safe, intentional, and deep learning and healing. I do my best to bring this intention into every aspect of my practice. I’m a clinical herbalist, stone medicine practitioner, and holistic living and embodiment educator. I cherish opportunities to connect with clients and students who resonate with the practice, doing the work, showing up to the world with integrity and authenticity and cultivating more love and joy and healing in concrete ways. • • • My work is inspired by a deep relationship with earth and earthly companions - think plants, stones, animals, humxns - and my commitment to remembering the importance of our connections. I draw from an education ignited by childhood afternoons in the backyard and summers in lush forests and continued through studies with brilliant teachers including Jessica Godino, Sarah Thomas, CoreyPine Shane, and Jeffrey Yuen. I integrate my experience with western herbalism, Chinese Medicine, and embodied awareness with the intention of bringing an intimate mindfulness into every step of our healing work so that we can be more of ourselves for our own well being as well as that of our communities. • • • I believe that real relationship with the world will actually change the way we relate with one another, the way we understand abundance and power, and the way we build community. • • • { dwelling } intends to create a container for just such learning. Learn more about the school as well as consultations and workshops in my bio. Questions about { invitation }? Don’t wait. Send me a note right. now. Wide love, creatures. @root_deep
This is why investing in journalism matters. Medical implants undoubtedly save and transform lives around the world but a lack of industry regulation is risking patient safety. The ICIJ investigation will raise big questions globally but also for us here in Scotland and the UK. #ImplantFiles #implants #medicaldevices #healthjustice #nhs
We’ll be using this stunning orange root from @oldfriendsfarm on #valleygivingtuesday to make medicine for the clients of our free weekly clinic. ****Join us Tuesday from 3:30-5:30 upstairs at @franklincoop In Greenfield to make fire cider, salve, and more. Families welcome!**** This orange beauty will go into a liver tonic; it is considered to be heptoprotective and trophorestorative to the liver...meaning that it prevents damage to liver cells AND promotes regeneration after harm from alcohol, medications, and stress. For our clients, many of whom are in recovery, this medicine is an important step on the road to better health. Can anyone name this rad rhizome?? Can’t make it out? There are many ways to give on #givingtuesday If you can’t join us to literally make medicine, or even if you can, consider giving a small donation to our year-end campaign. The money we raise builds our capacity to expand on our mission and will directly sponsor four more clients for a whole YEAR of treatment at our clinic. https://wmtcinfo.networkforgood.com/projects/38461-people-s-medicine-project-s-2018-year-end-giving #ingratitude #namethatherb #recovery #herbalism #medicineforthepeople #healthjustice #socialjustice #medicineforall #alternativemedicine #freeclinic #healingtogether

Some words on carbs, evil foods, and the holiday season • These are real carbs!! The carbs that make sense, the carbs that can healthfully make up MOST of your diet, the carbs that are not evil. • HOWEVER, I hope no food seems evil to you. If it does...if you’re scared to eat something because you think it may break you or redefine you, I hope you’ll consider talking to a trusted friend or provider. Feel free to message me for suggestions. Every body deserves acceptance. Every body deserves love. Every body deserves to feel good in their own skin. And YOU are beautiful. Always. • This holiday season, have so many thoughts. Consider the violence this holiday is rooted in. Consider everything we’ve done to indigenous people. Consider the turkeys as well, sacred to many indigenous tribes, eaten on a day that celebrates the violence against them. Consider the people struggling through complex families and situations. Consider those missing someone at their table. Consider those who may have silent histories with disordered eating who are struggling through holidays centered in food. Stand up for someone this holiday season. Yourself included. #plantbased #health #wellness #healthforall #healthjustice #vegan #hoodhealth #plants #bodypositive #nurse #nursepractitioner #pediatrics #holiday

"In the city of Detroit there is a systemic, unequal distribution of social, ecomomic, educational and environmental conditions to promote safety, health, and proper growth. These conditions exist within a city that is over 85% African American and Hispanic. 40% of the population and 57% of the underage population are living below the federal poverty line. 55% of Detroit doesn't meet the basic requirement for 67% of the jobs available in the city. This along with the decision of Judge Stephen Murphy III, who declared "access to literacy" was not a fundamental right. It becomes a simple deduction to declare that the criminalization of Detroit is structural and forced. it is the result of people with low skills and minimal options attempting to meet their basic needs within a hostile structural environment that assumes malevolence."

ITIYOPIYA EWART. Healing Practices. Impacts to Healing Processes. • • • Itiyopiya is an anchor for {invitation}. She offers a generosity and genuineness much needed in conversations around health and healing today, and she inspires me with her commitment to holistic well being for herself, her family, and her community, in so many ways. • • • A woman of many talents, Itiyopiya has stepped in to show up for conversations around many layers of social justice and healing. Her life path has provided her the opportunity to work in highly creative and technical environments. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music and a Master of Arts in Teaching. • • • Itiyopiya grew up in a family of root and stone medicine healers, and she continues to bring these practices into her daily life. Singing, traveling, and learning are important parts of life that Itiyopiya loves sharing with her son, Tatek, and daughter, Trelawney. • • • To me, her compassion, wisdom, and clarity underline the fact that she’s a teacher at heart, holding thoughtful space for those around her even as she shares and facilitates conversation around subjects that challenge.

Good healthcare is blame free, shame free, and future oriented. #Repost @bethanydietitian with @get_repost ・・・ If a person provides a healthcare provider with personal information about their life, current habits, etc. and then is shamed for any of this information and/or discriminated against based on this information....what is the chance that person is going to be truthful in the future or feel comfortable seeking medical care from this provider (or any provider) again? Where’s the validation? Where’s the compassion? This is NOT healthCARE. This IS health shaming and it DOES harm. • For those who make claims about the “failing” health of our country...let’s take a moment and think about the impact of shame and stigmatization within health settings on this failing health.

I am so very happy to see that this source on health and art is now available for women, by @womanlymag In a world where it is statistically proven that women are less likely to receive quality medical treatment, to be believed about their conditions, and to survive at the rate of male counterparts, we need sources to help us advocate for ourselves. Especially women in low income realities. All of the scientific terminology and jargon can be inaccessible, daunting and biased. ART has the ability to communicate emotions and lived experiences. It is a BRIDGE, and entry point. Art is a strong educational tool for communicating information viscerally and visually. It is for this reason that I am dedicating my practice to this precise intersection. Art and Health Justice. It’s hard doing work in a vacuum. So I am very exited to see other sisters out here working in a similar vein. Cheers to @womanlymag Tell everyone about it. Buy copies for folks who need it. Tell the women and non binary people in your lives. Also, I am so inspired by thoughtful dear friends who know my heart precisely and gift me pieces like this. I’m looking at you @txakolinaa #HealthEquity #ArtAndScience #Art #WomensHealth #HealthJustice #GlobalWomen #HealthArtActivism
I believe in body autonomy. I believe a person has the right to make whatever decision they want about their body. And sometimes this means fellow humans decide to pursue intentional weight loss. It is their right and it is not ok to judge them for this desire/decision. AND At the same time, I believe everyone has a right to informed consent and to full disclosure. And when I say informed consent...I mean informing clients on all aspects of an intervention, treatment modality, procedure, etc. This means the pros AND cons and the benefits AND risks. With regards to the pursuit of weight loss, in particular, too many times clients/customers are not provided the full story. Too many providers, companies, orgs, etc. won’t provide full disclosure and do provide a lot of misinformation around health/weight...some of them just don’t know and some are aware but cannot/won’t see past their own biases and/or greed (it’s a sad reality that weight loss sells...it doesn’t promote long-term health but it sells...and that really sucks). Weight loss claims are often, and unfortunately, based on misinterpretations of research, biased research, effects of very short-term bouts of intentional weight loss (which isn’t the full story) or sometimes those claims are just completely made-up (the why behind this...usually goes back to oppression, power and greed). • These are just a few important pieces of information (there are definitely more!) that I believe are imperative to disclose and inform clients about when it comes to the intentional pursuit of weight loss (changes in body composition, “weight management”, etc). Everyone deserves to know the full story! #weight #health #healthateverysize #nutrition #dietitian #radicaldietitian #healthjustice #riotsnotdiets #fulldisclosure #ethicalcare #bodyautonomy #bodyliberation
