Herxheimer reactions are something that most people have experienced but they probably didn't know it had a name.

74: Carrageenan: A Common Food Additive That Might Affect Your Health

Today's topic is carrageenan. It's a plant-based ingredient that's in many foods and a lot of people can also have a sensitivity to it.

I know I've had lots of those times myself. As recently as last week.

72: Why Some Doctors Say That Adrenal Fatigue Isn't Real

In episode 9 I talked about adrenal fatigue and I'm long overdue for a continuation of that. Today I'm explaining why many doctors say that adrenal fatigue simply doesn't exist.   If you don't have adrenal fatigue or don't think it applies to you, here's why I want you to keep listening: many topics that I cover are precursors to autoimmune conditions that can be avoided or reversed without medical interventions.   Roughly 1 in 4 people are living with 1 or more autoimmune conditions right now. That's a lot. And it's prevalency is only going to increase because a lot of these things ..read more
