Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 90 minute interview with her guest, Dr. Nicole Apelian
Dr. Nicole Apelian is an herbalist, a biologist, an anthropologist, a survival skills instructor, and a mother. Nicole was a challenger on the second and fifth seasons of the History Channel's tv series "Alone", where she thrived in the wilderness totally solo with little more than her knife and her wits. She also stars in the new UK documentary mini-series "Surviving the Stone Age: Adventure in the Wild". She is the author of two books, The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies: The Healing Power of Plant Medicine and A Reference Guide to Surviving Nature: Outdoor Preparation and Remedies (GEAR-WILDLIFE-WEATHER-FIRST AID).
An unexpected diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2000 led Nicole to apply her scientific research skills towards her own personal wellness. She focuses on a healthy living strategy, including deep nature connection and gratitude practices. Through changes in her lifestyle & diet, recognizing profound mind-body linkages, and making and using her own herbal remedies, Nicole went from bedridden to being fully alive and from surviving to thriving. At home in the Pacific Northwest, she makes her own herbal medicines from local plants as part of her healthy living strategy, especially as related to autoimmune issues, and has her own herbal medicinal apothecary line.
