    27. Are You Really Low In Iron? With Morley Robbins

    27. Are You Really Low In Iron? With Morley Robbins

    There are a lot of misconceptions floating around about iron.  Morley Robbins is the founder of The Root Cause Protocol and has helped thousands of people find the same healing he has found through understanding minerals.  We devote the majority of this discussion to iron and copper, two minerals that are largely misunderstood by the allopathic and even functional medicine spheres.  The point we keep coming back to is how beautiful and intelligent the human design is.  Join us as we explore how we can best support our physiology through a greater understanding of these important minerals.

    In this episode, we cover:


    Morley’s personal journey of finding healing through nutrition and minerals
    The impact of copper deprivation on the body and its connection to oxidative stress
    The role of critical thinking in taking responsibility for our own health
    What factors in our modern world have lead to pervasive iron overload
    How our bodies actually store iron and why blood tests fall short in measuring iron
    The flaw of iron supplementation in pregnancy
    How copper and iron move from mother to baby during pregnancy
    The impact of mineral deficiencies in the postpartum period
    Advocating for a safe and healthy birth even in the face of opposition from practitioners
    How the birth landscape has become highly medicalized over the years
    Taking a proactive instead of reactive approach to health and nourishment in pregnancy
    Making the choice to trust your body in pregnancy and birth
    Forgoing prenatal vitamins and pursuing whole food nutrition instead
    Exploring the reasons for the high rate of babies diagnosed with anemia
    Individualized mineral needs based on melanin

Stewarding our bodies!

As a mama and farmer (of pasture raised hens and cows) I am so so delighted to find your podcast and appreciate your brining together metabolic eating, holistic wellness, parenting, faith and more! Be encouraged and bless you both in all the ways. Emily, Australia.

Life changing

Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge to help others, this information is truely life changing. I suffered from HG in pregnancy and I knew that something was up but I didn’t know what to change - the medical system certainly doesn’t support the human body to thrive but even within holistic practitioners no one told me about progesterone!!!!!!! We need to take health into our own hands as I already do, I went on to have two beautiful undisturbed births and as a family we are very healthy but I still felt tired all the time now I understand how much healthier, stronger, energetic I can feel. I’ve made changes to what I eat based on your principles and it is helping greatly. I feel so free thank you thank you thank you! I also love following these two women on Instagram! X

Outstanding

I have suffered countless years with trying to fix my gut health and other health issues and never thought of focusing on my metabolism. So thankful that I can listen to such wholesome women talk about their own experiences and give an opportunity for others to learn what they have found works! Check them out on Instagram !
