Gundula Rhoades: How food can help solve the ecological and health crisis of people, animals and the planet

Gundula Rhoades owns a veterinary practice in Inverell, New South Wales, Australia. Her recently published book, The Food Solution: Eating Today to Save Tomorrow, explains that by eating food that comes from regenerative farms we can help to reverse the degradation of human, animal, and soil health while also combatting climate change. In our conversation, we speak about how Gundula, or Gundi as she prefers to be called, came to realize the connection between soil health, animal health, and human health, and how her training in veterinary sciences did not prepare her to take a holistic approach to healing. We also talk about the changes that she sees currently happening in Australia; as more and more people are realizing the benefits of switching away from chemical-driven food production to more regenerative approaches of healing the land. In addition, we explore the effects of this shift that she has noticed in the people and the animals visiting her veterinary clinic.
