Olivia Newton-John and Amazon John Easterling, founder of the Amazon Herb Company, share their experiences in a one-hour interview with Dr. Pat Baccili on a continuing series, “The Dr. Pat Show”, streamed live Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 8am (PST)/11am (EST) on VoiceAmerica’s Variety Channel (voiceamericavariety.com/ ). The Easterlings travel the world raising awareness of better health, creating a better life, and exploring ways in which everyone can contribute to making the world a better place.
The trio comes together again to shed light on taking care of ourselves, our communities and the planet. “This interview would be best described as three connected souls getting together, sharing stories, listening to great music, and figuring out how to engage people in their lives and the lives of others” says Baccili. Whether talking about saving the Rain Forest, using Amazon Herbs to heal oneself or contemplating the meaning of songs from Olivia’s new album, “A Celebration in Song,” all agree on one very important thing, each of us can transform the world for the greater good.
Newton-John shares the keys to the joy in her life, “Go with the River, I think that’s what has been amazing, allowing these things to happen. All good things take time, they take effort, and they take energy, but when you’re doing good things, it feels really good…it feels right, you know.” With her current and ongoing projects and philanthropic endeavors, Olivia’s worldwide popularity is as strong as ever!
In the interview, Olivia reveals her “dream comes true” about the new wellness center at The Austin Hospital in Melbourne. The Government announced last week it would cover the outstanding $45 million to complete the centre, leaving $10 million more to be raised for additional services. “Everything I do revolves around health and wellbeing. I have a spa in Australia called Gaia Retreat and Spa which is up near Byron Bay. My music is also tied in – I did a CD called Grace and Gratitude, which is a healing CD renewed in 2010” Newton-John shares. “Finding something positive to do for somebody else always makes you feel good about yourself too!” The CD has now been re-released in 2011 as Grace and Gratitude Renewed.
Together Olivia and John are spreading the word about the importance of preserving the Rainforest and the health values found in the botanicals of the Amazon. They recently launched the organic Rainforest drink, Zamu, which got rave reviews. Amazon John is passionate about how each of us can make a difference, “We have to recognize our power! Everyone can make a BIG difference in the world” said Easterling. In addition, the couple are working together with the ACEER Organization (www.ACEER.org) to help the indigenous people of the Amazon gain ownership and title to their land. In September 2009, they also joined forces with Prince Charles’ The Prince’s Rainforest Project (www.RainforestSOS.org) to further stress the global importance of the Rainforest. Amazon John opens up about his passion for the Rainforest, the benefits of herbs like Camu Camu, and his love for his beloved, “People do want to feel good, and there is a natural way to go about that. That’s the beauty of the Amazon Rainforest it is a botanical treasure house of new kinds of natural chemistry, nutrition and information expressing itself through the botanicals.”

About ‘Amazon John’ Easterling
Successful eco-entrepreneur and visionary leader, John Easterling, founded the Amazon Herb Company in 1990. He shares a powerful vision of using eco-commerce as the solution for better health, Rainforest sustainability, and wealth generation. John and his company recently received national recognition in Jean Michel Cousteau’s PBS documentary ‘Return to the Amazon’ where he and his company were recognized as “the strongest testament that keeping the Rainforest alive and productive is more economically profitable than cutting it down. During his years of exploration in the Rainforest, “Amazon John” was introduced to the traditional use of medicinal plants. After a health crisis and life-changing experience using these botanicals, a simple truth became clear: The real treasure of the Rainforest is, in fact, the life-enhancing properties of the Rainforest plants. This discovery led to an exciting, cooperative enterprise with health care practitioners in several countries. For years, Amazon Herb Co. formulas were only available from these practitioners.
