If you’re trying to improve immune function - your gut health needs to be a MAJOR priority.

After all, approximately 70-80% of your immune system resides in your gut.

Most Americans today understand the state of our health is in trouble. 

According to recent statistics, a whopping HALF of Americans (and 27% of kids) have a chronic disease and this will be the first generation of kids to live lives shorter than their parents. 

And while our quality of life is clearly suffering, the other scary part is chronic disease will generate $47 trillion in healthcare by 2030 if the epidemic remains unchecked. 

Which means, we won’t feel well AND our country will be overwhelmed by health care costs. 

Clearly, we need a new direction. Thankfully, New York Times best-selling author (and one of the most influential people in health), Chris Kresser, has created a revolutionary approach that focuses on cultivating health rather than simply managing disease.

Most people today want to optimize brain function and feel calmer (or happier), reduce brain fog, or experience more stable moods.

(Or maybe you’re like me and you just never want to forget where your keys are again! :) 

Fortunately, there is a healthy body of research demonstrating that what we eat - directly impacts the way our brain functions, develops and recovers.

In fact, today’s podcast guest, best-selling author, clinical professor and functional medicine superstar, Dr. Terry Wahls, used food (and strategic supplements) to heal her brain and reverse the Multiple Sclerosis that once confined her to a tile-recline wheelchair chair.

Talk about incredible. 

She is also conducting clinical trials demonstrating that her Wahls Protocol IS just as powerful and life changing as we want to believe it is.  And that it’s not just for people with M.S. but for people who want to reverse other autoimmune conditions or simply improve the way their brain functions. 

So if you want to build a better brain (and who doesn’t, right?) - drop what you’re doing and tune in NOW!

Dr. Wahls is one of the most impressive people I’ve ever had the pleasure of interviewing and I know you’ll be blown away by what she has to say. Here’s what you’ll learn...

  • Why she only eats one meal a day 
  • What she believes caused her autoimmune issues
  • Her thoughts on the carnivore diet 
  • The food that causes incapacitating face pain for her within 6 hours
  • The best foods for a health brain
  • The 3 most problematic foods for people with autoimmune conditions
  • The surprising tweak she makes for paleo dieters
  • Why organ meats are integral to her protocol
  • Why greens are powerful medicine for the brain
  • The best veggies for keeping your brain young
  • The little known vitamin that your brain needs more of
  • The food she eats whenever she travels
  • Why bone broth is helpful for the mTOR pathway
  • The food colors that build brain health
  • What people with both genes for Alzheimer’s (like me) think of her protocol
  • Why long term ketosis can negatively impact health

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted from cell phones, computers, wifi routers and other gadgets that surround us are everywhere in this day and age, which leads many people to believe they’re safe.

Sadly, there is excellent evidence suggesting EMFs are not as safe as we’d like to think they are. In fact, EMFs are empirically linked to conditions like:

  • Asthma
  • Autism
  • Cancer (brain, breast & leukemia)
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Miscarriage
  • Liver damage 

And our children are the most vulnerable population. 

Fortunately, there are many simple ways to reduce your exposure and protect yourself, and we talk all about them in today’s incredible podcast with EMF expert, Daniel DeBaun. 

Tune in! And don't forget to share this important information with anyone who might benefit.

Most people understand that hormonal birth control can increase the risk of blood clots and breast cancer, but what most people aren’t told is that its use has also been linked to…

An increased risk of suicide...
A 330% increased risk of Crohn's Disease…
And maybe even an increased risk of Alzheimer’s.

Scary, right? The last time I took it, I felt SO anxious, I had to stop after only a few days. When I called my doctor to tell her what happened she said...

“That would definitely NOT have anything to do with birth control - call a psychiatrist and get some help.”

Turns out - she was wrong. Birth control DOES cause unwanted side effects for many women.

In fact, recent research and the clinical experience of this week’s BRILLIANT podcast guest, Dr. Jolene Brighten (author of the best-selling book, Beyond the Pill), has shown that birth control comes with a litany of side effects we’re just beginning to understand.

So if you’re taking birth control, if you’re thinking of taking it, or if you’re wondering what you can do instead to support healthy hormonal balance, do yourself a favor and tune into this week’s awesome podcast. Here’s what we cover...

  • When fasting is NOT a good idea for women
  • The digestive benefits of fasting
  • The best time in your cycle to fast
  • Great foods to break a fast
  • A simple sign you have blood sugar issues
  • The link between Alzheimer’s are birth control
  • The hormone that makes you tired and hungry (and why that’s ok!)
  • What Post Birth Control Syndrome is and why you need to know about it
  • Where birth control exerts its main effects (This will surprise you!)
  • The 3 prescription medications that often follow the use of birth control
  • The link between suicide attemps and birth control
  • The autoimmune disease that birth control increases the risk of by 300%
  • Why birth control can increase suicidal attempts in teens
  • Why synthetic progestin and progesterone are NOT the same thing
  • How hormones affect our mood
  • The link between “bad” cholesterol and birth control
  • Why those with the MTHFR mutation should be weary of birth control
  • The 3 tests you will definitely want to have before taking birth control
  • The type of birth control that everyone should avoid
  • How to talk to your doctor about your symptoms so they understand you
  • The best 3 steps you can take to heal your hormones
  • And. So. Much. More.

Many Americans have been told to avoid dietary cholesterol at one time or another.

One of the unfortunate consequences of following this advice, is that many Americans also unintentionally eliminated the richest dietary sources of vitamin A - liver, eggs and cream. Given that we REQUIRE vitamin A (especially the retinol form found in animal products) for things like

  • Eye health
  • Immune function
  • Healthy reproduction
  • Clear skin
  • Energy production
  • Thyroid Health
  • Autophagy

According to this week’s podcast guest, creator of the Root Cause Protocol, Morely Robbins, this avoidance of vitamin A rich foods,

“ is one of the most devastating events in our nutritional history.”

So if you’re getting sick more often than you’d like, suffer from skin issues, or feel tired all the time, drop what you’re doing and learn all about what most people (even experts) have gotten wrong about this critical nutrient and what you can do to optimize your intake!

Here are some of the surprising topics we cover…

Why paying attention to our mineral status is underrated
The downside of using most vitamin C supplements
Why copper is one of the most important minerals for vibrant health
Why there are iron filings in the American food supply
The difference between organic and inorganic iron
The role of copper in diabetes prevention
The truth about copper toxicity (and a little-known common cause)
The difference between retinol and beta carotene
How to accurately measure your iron status (we’re not talking about ferritin, either!)
Why taking vitamin D in isolation is dangerous (and may cause kidney stones)
The true cause of anemia (that almost no doctor talks about)
The food we KNOW has healed anemia since 1934
The 2 nutrients (other than iron) that are necessary to heal anemia
Why vitamin A deficiency can make fasting LESS beneficial
Whether or not he thinks a vegetarian diet can be nutritionally adequate
Why many people cannot convert beta carotene into retinol
The best dietary sources of bioavailable copper
Why whole food vitamin C (but not ascorbic acid) can improve copper status
One of the first nutrients to check if you’re hypothyroid
2 often-overlooked (yet critical) nutrients for thyroid health
Why copper is important for B vitamin metabolism

According to a 2018 Cigna survey HALF of Americans feel alone, isolated or left out at least some of the time.

Even more disturbing is the fact that, recent research has revealed social stress is a more powerful predictor of mortality than…

Physical inactivity
Having 6 drinks a day
Smoking 15 cigarettes a day.

Which is why this week’s podcast is all about the power of community, the detriments of loneliness and the incredible power of functional medicine with best selling author and founder of the Functional Forum, James Maskell.

Here are some of the fascinating topics we cover...

  • How functional medicine differs than other types of medicine
  • How we know functional medicine is more effective
  • The 3 underlying principles of functional medicine
  • Why loneliness is the BIGGEST driver of poor health outcomes
  • How to improve your social ties and build community
  • How to leverage the power of community on your health journey
  • Why it takes 17 years for research to influence medical policy
  • How to find practitioners using functional medicine and community
  • How he feels about growing up in a commune
  • His New Year’s Resolution
  • And so much more!

Many of us have set New Year’s resolutions to eat better and workout more in the New Year, but what I hope this podcast inspires you to do is also make finding community a priority, too.

To celebrate the first Weekend Wellness Episode of the year today’s podcast is going to be a little different - at the end of every podcast I’ve been asking the same “famous last question” that has resulted in SO many wonderful, impactful pieces of advice from hundreds of doctors, functional medicine practitioners and other health and wellness experts, that I wanted to bring them all together and share some of my favorite answers in one awesome episode to serve as inspiration for you in the new year…SO I chose my 10 favorite answers for the first round that I thought you’d benefit from most!

Many of the personal care products on the market today are FILLED with toxic chemicals linked to detrimental health outcomes.

And while we’d like to believe the FDA will protect us from these dangerous ingredients, it actually has FAR less oversight and power than we’d like to believe.

Which is why it's absolutely vital we educate ourselves and support companies making truly non-toxic products.

The only problem?

Many of the “clean” products on the market simply don’t work.

Most of the hair care products I’ve used, for example, leave my hair dry and dull.

Fortunately, that’s all about to change because one of the most influential people in health and wellness, The Wellness Mama, joins us today to talk all things fasting, toxins, non-toxic personal care products.

She’s spent the last decade researching and perfecting products that not only eliminate toxic chemicals, but that also add nourishing ingredients.

So if you’re ready to ditch the toxins (and dull, dry hair) and upgrade your personal care routine, tune in NOW!

We cover these fascinating topics:

  • The ingredient found in “natural” toothpaste that can harm your teeth
  • The ingredient that can actually HEAL certain cavities
  • The herb that makes your hair to grow stronger and longer
  • The vitamin that can cure acne
  • The 3 healthy habits Katie does daily
  • The health hack Katie wishes she used more
  • The benefits of cold water therapy and sauna (and when to use them!)
  • How to curb cravings during a fast
  • Body image issues (and how to break through them)

This was one of the most inspiring podcasts I’ve recorded to date, which is why I couldn’t wait to share it as we start the new year.

I hope you love it as much as I did.

Happy New Year, Wellness Warriors!

According to the USDA, 95% of Americans are deficient in at least one nutrient.

Even more shocking is that In order to get the vitamin A content from one orange our grandparents ate, we’d need to consume 8 today.

Why is this happening?

One of the major reasons is our soil (and therefore the food we grow in our soil) is nutrient DEPLETED. The situation is so dire, in fact, that according to the FAO we only have 60 years of topsoil left.

This is a BIG problem with many devastating consequences.

Sadly, most people don’t fully understand why healthy soil is important or how to support food producers that regenerate our soil and planet.

(No judgies - I used to be one of them!)

Which is why this week’s podcast with Finian Makepeace, soil specialist and co-founder of Kiss the Ground, is devoted to breaking down the many detrimental outcomes of degraded soils AND the simple dietary steps we can take to restore nutrient density and environmental health.

Because every time we eat - we vote for SOMETHING.

Whether it’s:

  • CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations)
  • GMOs
  • Pesticides
  • Monocultures
  • Organic/biodynamic produce
  • Regenerative agriculture

Each of our choices has an impact.

So if you’re ready to wield the power of your fork for GOOD and become a truly conscious consumer and soil advocate tune in now!

Show Notes:

Today, 40 million people suffer from anxiety in America. Alzheimer’s affects over 5 million and depression is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide.

Even more disheartening, is the fact that many people suffering from these brain-based conditions don’t have treatment options that work for them.

Because I have both genes for Alzheimer’s and a history of anxiety, I’m obsessed with finding new research-based strategies to keep my brain sharp, calm, and focused.

Which is why I was thrilled to interview Steve Wright (author of Maverick Healing and founder of HealthyGut.com) and learn about his favorite (and little known) brain and gut hacks of 2019!

Steve has always been a hero of mine (I used to watch him co-host on Chris Kresser’s podcast) and his story and knowledge of the latest brain health research will surprise and inspire you!

Here are some of the awesome topics we cover:

  • The often overlooked mineral that helps people relax
  • The secret ingredient that once made 7 Up a mood-boosting drink
  • The street drug that has cured 70% of treatment-resistant PTSD
  • What the Default Mode Network is, and why you need to know about it
  • The B vitamin that can help you feel calm in large doses
  • The supplement that helped his family member recover from suicidality
  • Why Steve called 9-1-1 after taking a vitamin
  • The vitamin that has been shown to cure addiction
  • What chocolate cravings can mean about your brain chemistry
  • The nutrient deficiency that stops healing
  • How often you should rotate your supplements
  • The cutting edge SIBO treatment that you need to know about
  • The biofilm buster that can help heal your gut
  • How to become a Maverick healer
  • And so much more!
