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.

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.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: the medical model is broken.

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.

Have you ever had gallstones? Given how common they are these days, odds are you or someone you know has experienced them at one point or another. Unfortunately, the way most medical doctors treat gallstones is not only misguided, but also harmful to patients.

So today, I’m going to share the truth about gallstones, where they come from, and how to get rid of them—without getting rid of your gallbladder.

I’ve said many times that digestion is really two things: it’s how well we convert the food we are eating into usable nutrition, and how well we eliminate waste. That second piece is what the lymphatic system is all about, yet a lot of people aren’t even aware of the importance of this system.

I have heard from far too many patients that their medical doctors have put them on some medication or another with the claim that they’re making too much stomach acid. Let me tell you right now: it is absolutely, physiologically impossible to produce too much stomach acid. In fact, many of the symptoms doctors try to treat with these acid-reducing medications are actually caused by low stomach acid.

This typical practice of prescribing proton-pump inhibitors has got to stop, so today we’re going to go deep into stomach acid deficiency and all the problems associated with it. Listen in to learn the true cause of heartburn and similar issues, why it's absolutely critical for your body to produce stomach acid, and how medications aimed at reducing stomach acid are actually incredibly harmful to your overall health.
