Episode 161: Helen Marshall: Host Elle Russ chats with Helen Marshall, who used Primal living to overcome debilitating digestive issues and now runs a global health coach service, produces a line of Primal Alternatives to the foods we used to love (and franchises it out to other people), all from 100 kangaroo-strewn acres in the Australian bush.
“I picked up 21 chicks that walked through my yard last April and put them in a cage (don’t think anyone missed them) but it wasn’t until they were freed and allowed to start finding their own food and spaces that they started laying. Now they sleep in the pomerac tree and eat anything they can find or that’s tossed out the kitchen window. We still feed them occasionally with the factory feed but that’s more to ensure that they can still be tempted back into the coop in the event that they stop laying and need to be curried instead.”
