It has become clear this year that immune responses to similar exposures can be wildly different.

And while the reasons were once a mystery, advancements in genomics are now providing answers.

In other words, we are now better able to understand why one person gets sick and another remains healthy despite similar exposures.

Most importantly, we are now better able to provide targeted interventions that help people get well and stay well.

And in today’s podcast, one of my dear friends and a 15 year veteran of functional medicine, Dr. Stephanie Davis, teaches us about 4 genetic markers you can monitor to assess your immune function and simple strategies for building your resilient immune system. 

(This podcast goes way deeper than most conversations around immune health today, so get ready to take notes!)

Here are some of the awesome tidbits you’re in for:

  • The 2 nutrients that are critical for immune health
  • The “healthy” food that can hamper immune health
  • The nutrient that improves zinc absorption
  • How to keep your personal genetic data private
  • The 4 genetic markers to follow for immune health
  • The best types of fish oil to reduce inflammation
  • 3 supplements that reliably reduce inflammation
  • Her favorite anti-inflammatory enzymes (and how to take them)
  • The supplements she took when she got sick
  • Her favorite vitamin D supplements
  • The other vitamin D marker you need to monitor
  • The best way to measure zinc status
  • How to take zinc for best results
  • The best way to take a multivitamin
  • Why you never want to “treat” genetic tests alone
  • Lifestyle strategies for a stronger immune system
  • Her daily supplemental strategy
  • The often-missed supplement for awesome sleep and better immunity
  • And so much more!

If you care about a healthy immune response, this is not the show to miss.

I sincerely hope it’s helpful.

So if you’re not getting 7-9 hours of sleep each night (or you have kids who aren’t great sleepers) check out this week’s incredible podcast with Doc Parsley on the importance of sleep, and the simple things you can do to get more of it.

Jumping from diet to diet, pill to pill and/or protocol to protocol without relief can be exhausting. 

It’s a cycle many people (maybe even you) are trapped in today.

But the truth is - in order to feel vibrant long term (which is your birthright), you need to identify the root cause(s) of YOUR suffering. 

For example, breakouts can be caused by MANY things such as...

  • Food allergies/intolerances
  • Blood sugar/insulin imbalances
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Stress
  • Hormonal dysfunction
  • Gut issues
  • Poor hygiene
  • And more

My cystic breakouts were tied to a garlic intolerance (of all things) which is why all of the other remedies I tried for YEARS (candida cleanse, lotions, microdermabrasion, face creams, etc.) didn’t help.  

And why the paleo diet wasn’t enough for me to heal my skin.

In other words, different people with the same symptom may need different interventions AND sometimes lab testing can be invaluable for identifying your root issues. 

It was this realization that brought me to Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN). FDN is a training system that uses data-driven protocols and functional lab testing to help people identify the root cause (or causes) of their suffering. 

It teaches people to identify their contributors to “metabolic chaos” AND how to systematically cultivate health. 

I took this course nearly 2 years ago and it changed my life and the way I work with clients. 

So if you’re someone who would love to learn what it takes to get to the root cause of your health issues OR someone who would love to learn how to take their wellness practice to the next level, please tune in to today’s podcast with the founder of FDN (and expert in functional lab testing), Reed Davis. 

Here are a few of the gems you’ll learn about...

  • Why some of us get sick and others don’t
  • 10 reasons people get “sicker quicker”
  • Why parasites and candida are not always the root issue
  • The most common types of gut bugs
  • The one belief I wish everyone had on their healing journey
  • What vitalism is - and why it’s so important
  • The difference between not having symptoms and health
  • The Wellness Meter (and why you should know about it!)
  • The benefits of gut bugs
  • One of the biggest contributors to gut issues
  • The difference between common and normal symptoms
  • Reed’s favorite recommendations for gut testing
  • The worst foods for gut health
  • Reed’s favorite food sensitivity test
  • 3 steps to improve gut health
  • How to become a health detective
  • And so much more!

The knowledge I gained from FDN was so empowering and helpful for me and all of my clients and I sincerely hope you love this interview as much as I did.

I think pretty much everyone today is aware that vitamin D is critical for immune (and overall) health. In fact, vitamin D deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of health issues like:

  • Heart attack
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Autoimmune disease

Unfortunately, MANY people today are vitamin D deficient and don’t know it. 

Not to mention the fact that vitamin D supplements are not always enough.

Which is exactly why I invited Cort Christie (CEO and owner of Sperti Sunlamps) to talk all about the benefits of vitamin D and how to safely improve your levels in the comfort of your own home! 

Cort has been in the therapeutic light space for over a decade and has partnered with experts like Dr. Holick (author of the Vitamin D Solution) to create the only FDA-approved at-home sun lamp that has been empirically shown to significantly raise vitamin D levels in only minutes a day!

We have been using it in our home, and LOVING it! (even with my 5 year old son, Maverick!)

There is no more important time to mind your vitamin D status than today, so tune in now to learn all about the importance of vitamin D and what you can do to improve your vitamin D levels now!

 Here are some of the fun facts you’ll learn...

  • Why vitamin D is critical for immune health
  • Why vitamin D supplements are not always enough (and what to do about it!)
  • How to test your vitamin D levels at home
  • The link between vitamin D deficiency and skin issues

Today people are waking up to the fact that many diseases begin in the gut. 

And while changing the foods we eat, the water we drink and taking supplements can make a world of difference for some people, it’s just not enough for everyone. 

Which is why today I want to share the fascinating work of Dr. Jason Klop regarding a breakthrough gut-healing therapy called Fecal Microbiota Transplant, or FMT. 

(And YES, it does involve what you think it does...)

Now FMT is clearly not for everyone, but recent research and clinical experience has shown it can be INCREDIBLY beneficial for certain populations like…

  • Autism
  • C. Difficile
  • IBS
  • SIBO
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Neurological Conditions such as Parkinson’s

In fact, research out of Arizona State University revealed that those with autism who received FMT experienced an 80% reduction in digestive symptoms and a 40% reduction in autism-related symptoms like hyperactivity, sleep issues and cognition. 

Pretty impressive, right?

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Tune in now to hear more about the incredible benefits of FMT and several other unique gut-healing strategies with Dr. Klop. Here are some of my favorite takeaways...

  • His 3 simple steps for better gut health
  • Why he doesn’t always avoid gluten
  • Why he had to delete his social media accounts
  • The true cause of food sensitivities
  • The #1 assault on our gut health 
  • Why eating 100 different foods a week is an important health strategy
  • Where he believes 100% of SIBO begins
  • Why grass fed dairy can be beneficial 
  • The #1 mistake when it comes to FMT
  • The biggest risk with FMT
  • How to know if you’re a good candidate for FMT
  • Whether FMT help with autoimmune conditions
  • And much more

Many of us suffer from symptoms and mental health struggles we can’t explain. 

  • We feel anxious.
  • We self-sabotage.
  • We experience depression.
  • We have illogical fears.
  • And despite our best efforts to lead a healthy lifestyle, something still feels “off.”

According to new research, this may be due to inherited family trauma. 

In fact, recent research has revealed we can inherit trauma (just like we do our hair or eye color) that can cause measurable changes in our DNA for several generations. 

Which means you may be feeling or behaving in a certain way, because your parents or grandparents experienced a traumatic event rather than because there is something wrong with YOU.

If this idea is as liberating and fascinating for you as it was for me, please tune in to this week’s podcast with award winning author of It Didn’t Start with You, Mark Wolynn! 

We discuss the science behind inherited family trauma, how to identify it and (most importantly) what you can do today to overcome it. 

The stories he shares will literally make your hair stand on end and I sincerely hope you love this conversation as much as I did.

Anxiety. Resentment. Sadness. Overwhelm. 

Feelings so many of us are experiencing right now.

Fortunately, there is a SIMPLE research-backed way to work through negative emotions and shift your body into relaxation mode in under 5 minutes. 

It’s called tapping, or the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).  

EFT has been empirically shown to reduce cortisol (stress hormone) levels more than talk therapy AND reduce cravings for foods like chocolate.  

So if you’re feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, sad, and want to learn about a simple way to feel more relaxed anytime, anywhere, please check out today’s podcast with co-owner of The Tapping Solution, Alex Ortner. 

Here are some of the things you’ll learn:

  • What is EFT?
  • How to consciously shift from the stress response to relaxation response (and why it matters)
  • How to access your full brain to make your best decisions

By now you've likely heard that enzymes can improve digestion.

It may surprise you, though, to know that enzymes can support optimal health in MANY empirically documented ways.

Certain enzymes support healthy levels of inflammation.

Others have been shown to reduce blood sugar and triglycerides. 

There are even enzymes that can support immune function.

BUT, not all enzymes are created equally.

Some support health beautifully, while others can actually detract from it. 

Tune in to today's fascinating podcast with health engineer and creator of HealthyGut.com, Steven Wright, to learn about how to tell the difference. 

You’ll also learn why enzymes are one of the most powerful and often overlooked health strategies, how to identify high quality versions and where to try some of my favorites on the market! 

Here are some highlights from our chat:

  • A simple, super cheap supplement for a healthier brain, bigger muscles and better sleep
  • Why enzymes are critical for optimal health\
  • The difference between systemic and digestive enzymes

Dinner time with kids can be overwhelming. 

Many kids only want to eat the white diet (bread, sugar, processed foods) and resist our valiant attempts to increase dietary diversity. 

This pattern is not only stressful for the entire family, but can also lead to gut dysfunction that leaves our more children vulnerable to a number of health issues. 

Which is exactly why I am thrilled to introduce you to Elissa Arnheim the creator of the Healthy Gut Happy Child Program. After her son’s cancer diagnosis, Elissa went on a mission to learn what it took to cultivate gut health in our littles. 

The best part? 

Along the way, she learned many simple strategies that make gut health fun for kids. (Including a trick that actually makes eating fermented foods fun!) 

So if you’re ready to kiss picky eating goodbye and learn how to get your kids to eat fermented foods willingly, tune in now!

Here’s what you’ll learn: 

  • The main causes of picky eating in our kids
  • 3 Ways to overcome picky eating (even for the pickiest kids!)
  • When dessert for breakfast is acceptable (and encouraged)
  • The 2 most problematic foods for kids
  • Food fear (and what to do about it!)
  • 3 wonderful ways to help our children relax
  • A simple kid-friendly way to release trauma in the body
  • How to do an elimination diet for your kids
  • My favorite brand of sugar-free ice cream
  • The food that makes some kids act like a wild animal
  • One of the biggest (yet often unrecognized) problems with sugar
  • The link between sugar and crankiness
  • The weekly event that helps us keep sugar out of the home (without the fight)
  • The super fun way to get your kids to eat fermented foods
  • How fermented foods transform gut health
  • The benefits of dance and movement for our little ones
  • And so much more!

The quality of our romantic relationships can literally shape the course of our health for better or worse. 

Positive relationships can lead to better pain control, less anxiety, fewer doctor’s visits and maybe even a longer life.  

On the flip side, relationships with high levels of conflict are associated with higher blood sugar levels, elevated blood pressure and an increased risk of obesity. 

Which is why I am THRILLED to share one of my favorite relationship experts in the world, Monica Berg. 

Monica Berg is a dear friend, one of the wisest women I know and the author of Rethink Love: 3 Steps for Being the One, Attracting the One and Becoming One. 

This podcast is FULL of surprising and practical strategies you can use today to improve the quality of your relationship AND your health dramatically. Here’s what you’ll learn...

  • The one thing we all need to do more of to stay young (and in love)
  • Why your partner actually pushes your buttons
  • How much you really need to disclose in a relationship
  • The simple antidote for nitpicking your partner
  • Why there is no such thing as a stable marriage
  • One critical step for a successful marriage
  • How the stories in your head hinder healthy relationships
  • Why shame and guilt can destroy relationships (and how to change it!)
  • The difference between self care and self interest
  • Why your partner shouldn’t be responsible for validating you
  • The difference between feedback and validation
  • Why you should create a credo
  • The one list you should make in the morning to set yourself up for success
  • How to help our children work through their emotions successfully
  • And so much more!

Please share this important podcast with everyone you think it may benefit! Many of us are spending more time than ever with those we love - and this information could make sure your relationships are working for your health - rather than against it. 

I sincerely hope it’s as helpful for you as it was for me!
