Ep. #3 Returning to the L.A.N.D. (Live As Nature Does) w/ Richard Vuksinic ND | ReWildMyBio
Today’s guest is the wild and wonderful Richard Vuksinic. Richard is a Doctor of Naturopathic medicine and in my eyes he is actually living the dream… his dream that is! It is a story that reminds us that all things in nature come full circle. He and his wife Kristina run the Village Naturopathic Clinic. He is a friend that I am truly inspired by, not only from his connection and care for stewarding the land but also because he is a wealth of knowledge in all things holistic and alternative health. If you are thinking about buying land to rewild it, offer healing and workshops, or even to build your off grid or low environmental footprint home than you are going to love this episode! We hear all about Richards childhood Tom Sawyer days and his start to natural medicine. This is a special episode because it is the first of many we hope to do together and the start of some exciting upcoming projects we are working on, with a sole purpose of healing and helping the Earth and all the beings that call her home. Stick around to the end to meet Uncle Milan and his love for herbs!
