49- How Emotions Tie into the Foods You Crave with Mollie Doyle

Have you ever been so stressed out that you end up eating an entire bag of chips or something else crunchy? What about being so sad that you down a whole thing of ice cream? If so, you aren’t alone, and our emotional eating has a lot to do with different types of textures.

Different types of textures are associated with different emotions we are experiencing because of how our body perceives these textures. For instance, a creamy texture can be really soothing, which is why we turn to the ice cream when we are sad. 

Once we understand how these textures integrate with our emotional eating, we can then take this information and understand what it is our body is trying to tell us!

Keto Backpacking: How To and Foods to Eat

If you have ever been backpacking for a couple of days, one thing you may have noticed is how much weight and room food can take up in your pack. This variable is dependent upon the length of your trip (or how comfortable you want to be on your trip). For those who are keto backpacking, they notice a huge difference in their pack weight and how they feel.

Food is the literal energy you have in order to complete your trip. If you are lacking the energy to get to your destination, or you are just exhausted after every single trip you do, then you might want to take a look at your food.

48- Heavy Metal Toxicity and How to Detox with Wendy Myers

48- Heavy Metal Toxicity and How to Detox with Wendy Myers

When was the last time you thought about how your mineral levels are doing? Likely your answer is ‘never’, or at the most you say that you get calcium from your milk. So if we don’t think about minerals, why would heavy metal toxicity become something we are interested in?

As Wendy Myers said in our podcast, the minerals are the spark plugs for the body. When minerals are out of balance, then a lot of dysfunction can start to occur. Heavy metals are known to place themselves where normal minerals are supposed to be in the body, however instead of improving our function, it creates heavy metal toxicity.

47- Benefits and Politics of CBD Oil with Maryam Henein

47- Benefits and Politics of CBD Oil with Maryam Henein

As a Schedule 1 substance, CBD and hemp has been debated for a long time about whether this is a dangerous plant for humans to use. However, with the rise in states legalizing marijuana, and people being open to try new options, we have seen a lot of benefits to using CBD Oil.

In fact, some of the most common reports of CBD Oil usage is for seizures, anxiety, and even chronic pain. And you know what we don’t ever hear about? The psychoactive properties of CBD Oil…

…because there are none.

46- Holistic Approach to Heart Disease with Jack Wolfson

As the number 1 leading cause of death in America, heart disease is a problem that we’ve had a hard time fixing. For most cardiologists, they spend their time throwing pills at patients, or opening them up to fix the issue.

For years we have been told that saturated fat is evil, and that cholesterol will kill us all. While everyone has been eating low-fat, sugar intake has increased dramatically, and heart disease has also risen.

So maybe the problem isn’t the cholesterol-rich foods we used to eat, but instead are other issues with our food system and out stress levels.

45- Changing Cancer Support Systems with Megan Van Zyl

45- Changing Cancer Support Systems with Megan Van Zyl

We live in an age where 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life. The sad part is, people don’t really want to discuss this issue, and we never hear anything about the cancer support that is provided for these individuals.

It is a very scary diagnosis to receive, but we can’t keep quiet about the different options for treatment. Yes there is chemo and radiation as options, but these literally just kill the area around the cancer cells with the hopes it’ll kill the cancer as well.

43- How to Build a Healthy Family with Amy Slater

43- How to Build a Healthy Family with Amy Slater

It is no surprise that families have a hard time to create healthy routines for the entire family. With young kids running around (or even teenagers), parents who work full time, and having to actually “adult”, it can be stressful to build a healthy family.

It can be very easy to throw in the towel on workouts and healthy eating, and resort to grabbing whatever is convenient and easy. You may think it is easier to give your child that extra snack so they don’t cry instead of standing your ground and making them eat their veggies.

To give in to convenience and taking the easy route does not create a healthy family. Training kids to receive treats for doing “good” things ingrains a reward pathway in the brain where they incorporate happiness and pleasure with snacks. This doesn’t mean kids shouldn’t get treats from time to time, but we do want to make sure they enjoy real food instead of constantly falling for processed junk.

Instant Pot Mexican Chicken Soup

Instant Pot Mexican Chicken Soup

If you’re looking for an easy meal with a spicy kick, look no further than our Instant Pot Mexican Chicken Soup! With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, a lot of us have our heads in the clouds, eager for the excuse to eat extra Hispanic food and drink more tequila than normal this weekend.

Just remember Cinco de Mayo is NOT a traditional Mexican holiday, so don’t be surprised if your Hispanic friends roll their eyes a little at you.

All of my friends know I’m addicted to Mexican food already and have a ton of respect for traditions and culture, so I just use the “holiday” as an excuse to indulge more freely and make fun recipes.

Low Carb Margarita

Low Carb Margarita

Let’s face it, sometimes after a long day at work, you just want to kick back in your chair and have a drink. We’ve all been there, and there is no shame. Surprisingly though, many mixed drinks are packed full of unnecessary sugar. But for this low carb margarita, the amount of sugar will be much lower than most other margaritas.

In fact, if the margarita you are drinking is made from a mix, there is a pretty high chance the mix alone contains around 30g of sugar. However, if your margarita is made from scratch, it will probably be closer to 10g or so. We can get even lower than that though by utilizing our low carb margarita.

Looking at the nutritional profile of this tasty drink, you’ll notice that it only has about 6g of net carbs, and only 2g of sugar. For an alcoholic beverage, I would say that is a win!

42- Treating Eczema From Within with Stephanie Davis

42- Treating Eczema From Within with Stephanie Davis

We see many commercials for topical creams that are supposed to “treat” eczema. However, over 35 million Americans still suffer from eczema on a daily basis. Could there be more to the puzzle than just what we see on the outside of the body?

Eczema is where patches of the skin becomes rough and inflammed. These patches can become itchy which may also lead to bleeding. Typically they are found on the hands and knees.

While many people use topical creams or lotions to dry and reduce inflammation and re-hydrate the skin, there is usually an underlying issue that is more internal which is causing the eczema. In this episode, we talk with Dr. Stephanie Davis to learn more about ways to treat eczema.

Learn what the top 5 MCT Oil Benefits are and how to use it.

Top 5 MCT Oil Benefits to Improve Your Health

There is a good chance you have heard of MCT Oil, but what does “MCT” really mean? Well, it stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides, which is a form of saturated fatty acid that has quite a few health benefits, including improving the gut microbiome and providing an easy energy source. These are just a few of the MCT Oil benefits that we can expect to see.

MCTs are naturally found in quite a few foods, such as coconut oil and butter. For many people on a standard Western Diet, not enough natural MCTs are found in the diet. This is mainly because of the anti-fat fad that started back in the 1950’s. Now, research is showing that these saturated fats are needed in the diet to improve overall health.

It is important that we get some saturated fats into our diet every single day. MCTs and other healthy fats that can be found in foods like grass-fed butter and coconuts are much easier to digest than long-chain fatty acids.

Many of us don’t even know the damage mold can have to their living environments. And as we have learned in previous episodes, mold symptoms can mimic symptoms of a lot of other illnesses!

The Molekule Air Purifier can help to eradicate these airborne pollutants which can reduce your overall reactions to these toxins.

38- Autoimmunity and Movement with Julia Morichelli

Autoimmunity is where the body’s own immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues within the body. This can result in many issues such as low thyroid, systemic pain in the muscles, and forms of arthritis.

Usually those suffering from autoimmunity will have to take each day one day at a time. They could feel great today, and rundown tomorrow. This can make exercising a real challenge because you may not feel up for it.

Julia Morichelli is a fitness trainer who also suffers from autoimmunity. She has been diagnosed with multiple autoimmune conditions, so she knows all too well how difficult exercising can be.

What is the Keto Diet

What is the Keto Diet and Does it Work?

You may have heard about this “new” diet that is rapidly circulating around the globe called the Keto Diet. You may also know quite a few people who are on Keto, or currently trying the Keto Diet out. This is where the question “What is the Keto Diet” comes from and why we should dive into it.

I put the word new in quotes because right now it seems revolutionary, however the Keto Diet was actually created back in the 1920s. It was used as a way to provide a different approach to treating Parkinson’s and Epileptics that didn’t require having to fast for extended periods of time.

Potassium Rich Foods and Potassium Benefits

Potassium is an important mineral within the body that is typically known as one of the main electrolytes. The role of potassium is important for the function of all cells, tissues, and organs within the body.

Let’s take a look at the potassium benefits within the body before looking at the most potassium rich foods.

Alzheimer's and Keto Diet

27- Alzheimer’s and Keto Diet with Amy Berger

Welcome to 2018! Since this time of year everyone starts to set their health goals and everyone is talking about topics related to wellness, we are starting our first episode talking about 2 different health-related topics: Alzheimer’s and the Keto diet.

Alzheimer’s is one of those interesting diseases that scientists have worked hard to study, but have made very little progress with finding treatment options. Most of the time when the diagnosis is made, the family is told that there isn’t much hope, and eventually the disease will fully take over their mind.

The Powerful Blend of Hanah One

26- The Powerful Blend of HANAH ONE with Joel Einhorn

When it comes to using herbal products to help balance the body from all the stressors and toxins we face on a daily basis, I am a huge fan. It is rare to find an herbal product that doesn’t have a bunch of fillers, so when I caught wind of HANAH ONE, they had my attention.

Even if you had no idea what every single herb did in this blend, you could easily recognize that there are no ingredients that don’t come directly from the earth. This alone makes this type of product unique.
