Episode 3- The Healing Power Of Nature


Dr. Nicole Apelian is an herbalist, a biologist, a survival TV celebrity, an anthropologist, a survival skills instructor, and a mother. 

Nicole was a challenger on the second and fifth seasons of the History Channel’s TV Series ALONE, where she thrived in the wilderness solo with little more than her knife and her wits. She is also the author of two books, and her latest book, Forager’s Guide to Wild Foods: Edible Plants, Lichens, Mushrooms, and Seaweeds (North American Edition), will be available Spring 2021.

An unexpected diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2000 led Nicole to apply her scientific research skills towards her own personal wellness. She has spent years living in nature with the San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert, one of the last Indigenous peoples who still live as hunter-gatherers.

Nicole is at home in the Pacific Northwest, she makes her own herbal medicines from local plants as part of her healthy living strategy and has her own herbal medicinal apothecary line.
