Hi everyone! One of the truly amazing aspects of writing Primal was all of the great people I got to interview, connect with, and hear their stories. The very first person I was able to interview was Nicole Apelian, a star of the show Alone, a mother, an herbalist, holistic doctor, and friend of the Kalahari bushmen.
The stories Nicole shared and her insights greatly informed chapter one of my book: Sur-thrival. Nicole provided deep insight into our relationship with fire, our longing for deep nature connection, and how we balance these with our modern busy lives. In a future blog post, I am hoping to share the interview I did with Nicole in a podcast-style format. But for now here's more information about Nicole:
-Nicole's website: nicoleapelian.com
-Nicole also has her own blog: https://www.nicoleapelian.com/dr-nicoles-blog/
-And she just came out with a book she co-authored:
A Reference Guide to Surviving Nature: Outdoor Preparation and Remedies
Check out her work and tell me what you think!
