IN THIS EPISODE: Dr. Fred Grover Jr., M.D. shares his diverse experience, knowledge, and embodied wisdom in practicing medicine. We discuss the importance and value of sacred sexuality as a path to spiritual awakening, optimal health, and rewiring one’s physiology for greater connection. Our discussion spans into the powerful field of plant medicine and entheogens for transforming one’s relationship with life force energy, the earth, others, and life/death itself.
Fred Grover Jr., M.D., is a board-certified family physician, whose practice emphasizes preventative, functional, integrative, regenerative, and personalized medicine. He has additional board certifications in Integrative Medicine and Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.
He also has expertise in psychedelic medicine and performs several ketamine sessions weekly for patients struggling with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Supporting healing in the deepest way, he promotes mindfulness-based practices in stress reduction, lifestyle, and nutrition to proactively reduce acute and chronic illness, and enhance overall wellness. In addition to more traditional exam rooms, he has two rooms dedicated to meditation, light therapy, and sound and vibratory therapy in his regenerative medicine clinic in Denver. He’s an Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado and regularly teaches medical students and residents in the Integrative Medicine elective.
In addition to his two books, Spiritual Genomics and Awakening Gaia, his most recent research publication, in the November 2018 Journal of Photomedicine and Laser Surgery, demonstrated the benefits of transcranial near-infrared light therapy for the treatment of traumatic brain injury in veterans. His adventurous world travels, coupled with a passionate interest in spirituality, mindfulness, and DNA and Gaia activation, have helped him discover healing beyond a prescription pad, leading him to understand unique ways of maintaining the expression of healthy DNA, while helping others do the same.

Kinan and Fred will discuss a few psychoactive plants and man-made compounds in this podcast. We cannot endorse their use due to legal restrictions that vary based on local state laws, federal, and those of individual countries.
We recommend that you maintain awareness around the legality of various plant entheogens and if they are applied in a solo mindful based practice, with your partner, or in a group, that you have created a safe setting, consent, and boundaries with other participants, and that you have an integration process planned within a day or two of the experience.
While we may discuss psychedelic medicine during this podcast, they were all done in a legal or a decriminalized setting and during my free time, and never do at work.
Regarding intimate relations with someone while doing plant medicine, again one must mutually consent and agree to the process and have a plan to set limits should one feel uncomfortable during a journey.
