Smart Digestion Radio

Turning to prescription drugs to fix problems that only food can fix is all too common. Today I will explain why you need to focus more on how you fuel your body and why stress is often the real reason our bodies are not working correctly. Prescription meds don't treat stress, so I’ll discuss why it’s important to take other routes to help your body deal with this issue.

Can you guess the number one thing I tell all my patients to focus on in order to improve their health? It’s not taking digestive enzymes or eating vegetables—though those things are important, too. But even more important is drinking enough water.

I can’t stress it enough: if you are not properly hydrated, things will go wrong within your body. So in this episode, I’m going to share the essential functions of water and what makes it so important for health. Tune in to hear why you should focus on hydration above all else, how much water you should be drinking every day, and lots more.

Do you make your health a priority? Or are you more likely to make excuses? Unfortunately, I see far too many people who do the latter, and this episode is going to be a little bit of a rant about that.

No one should value your health more than you—period. So today I’m going to share with you two contrasting stories of patients I recently saw in my practice, one whose approach devalues both their own well-being and the work of health professionals, and the other who shows us what it really means to make your health a priority.

It is so important to find a doctor who is willing to be a detective when it comes to figuring out what your symptoms are linked to. Symptoms are the way our bodies show us what’s going on inside and it’s crucial to go to a doctor or health professional who will ask the right questions. In this episode, I will go over the symptoms you experience when you are improperly digesting macronutrients and how they are linked to other intolerances.

I’ll talk about the essential macronutrients, what they do for your body and why they’re so important to your digestion. Women specifically are not getting enough of some of these nutrients and this is a huge reason why women get hot flashes and other issues I talk about.

If you're like most people, you've probably experienced energy loss or one if its associated symptoms at some point or another, but have you ever wondered what causes it? You may be surprised to find that it’s not just about a lack of sleep or needing to eat better; it’s also about how well you're digesting the things you do eat. And that has everything to do with enzymes.

In this episode, I break down how it's all connected. You'll learn the important role enzymes play in our health, how the typical American diet contributes to the biggest stressor on our bodies that leaves us feeling drained, and what you can do to keep your body healthy and your energy levels high.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: the medical model is broken. And few things exemplify that more than what a particular internal medicine doctor recently said to one of my patients about birth control pills. After hearing about this, I had to open this up for discussion, so today I’m going to share with you a Facebook Live video I did over the weekend.

In it, I discuss the ridiculous thing this medical doctor said to my patient, as well as other classic examples like it that only further prove that the medical industry needs to change. Listen in to hear me share my thoughts on my patient’s case, as well as answering questions about how birth control pills damage women’s bodies, alternative treatment options, and more.
