Top 3 relevant quotes:

  • “World War II is a good example where there was a lot of toxic exposure, especially for people in Europe. Some of that toxicity can make its way into peoples’ biology. I’ll have somebody sitting in front of me that’s twenty years old, with ancestry from central Europe, that has toxins in their body that their grandparents were exposed to.”

  • “There’s never been a time that I’ve been struggling, stressed or working on a mental problem, where I’ve gone into the forest and I haven’t felt better afterwards. It works every time.”
    • Dr. Kevin


  • “I kind of feel like, if a day goes by in the clinic and nobody cried, then I haven’t done my job. It’s not that I wake up in the morning like, ‘Who can I make cry today’, but I’m just sitting with them presently and listening for those areas that happen to be keeping them the most stuck, and often those areas happen to be quite challenging or painful.”
