Meet Free Spirit & Healer, Craig Lane

And learn why seed oils make your cells stupid!

WATCH on YouTube, Y'all

Y’all, I’m gonna be real honest here on a couple of points. First, I skipped this past Tuesday. And I don’t have an excuse other than laziness and a desire to watch a weekend movie on my couch and just tune out the world. This is so not my normal vibe — completely uncharacteristic, and after some time chastising myself, I just gave in and said, Dixie needs a freakin’ break! Since this pod’s inception, I’ve not broken a publishing promise to myself. So there it is. And we’re movin’ on.

Second, my guest today shouldn’t be on this planet. As in he has now twice beat death — once after a car accident where he broke his neck. In today’s episode, you’ll learn how and why Craig Lane, a modern day healer, is still here: “I’m alive because of love.”

Today, Craig teaches and heals his patients through his practice, Health Alchemy, using many modalities including nutrition, yoga, Shiatsu, Chinese and herbal medicine and even iridology, the study of the eye’s iris. He operates by the following principle:“We don’t treat disease, we treat people.”

The eastern concept of duality was critical in helping Craig heal himself and now others. I liken his comments about not being able to really know the body and self to the study of Italian wine. Once you become a supposed “expert” (I am a credentialed sommelier, folks!), you learn that Italy alone has over 700 native grape varieties. In other words, you can not fully master wine. And that’s okay, because ambiguity is beautiful!

We discuss the importance of Natural law and the power of a concept Craig calls our Choice Maker. We then laugh over why coffee might be a better exit than entry strategy to your day and ponder Buddhist questions such as: “Who were you before your parents were born?!!”

In closing, Craig offered a beautiful tribute to his friend, Lee, and his favorite table-side tradition of grace through this blessing:

“Earth who gives to us this food.
Sun that makes it ripe and good.
Dear Earth, dear Sun, by you we live.
Our heart and thanks to you we give.
Thank you.” —

In closing I’d like to thank Stephanie Anderson for introducing me to Craig. She operates Selene River Press, a wonderful holistic health website where I contribute articles. I encourage you to buy a copy of The Nourishment Mindset from SRP, and if you already have a copy, send a gift!

Santé and Cheers, y’all!
