    Episode 93 - The Magic of Medicinal Mushrooms with Dr. Mason Bresett of Real Mushrooms

    Episode 93 - The Magic of Medicinal Mushrooms with Dr. Mason Bresett of Real Mushrooms

    In today's episode we go deep on the medicinal benefits of many varieties of mushrooms with Dr. Mason Bresett who is the medical advisor of Real Mushrooms.  Mason also has his own naturopathic practice in Sarnia, Ontario – The Health Creation Lab.  He uses medicinal mushrooms, herbal medicine, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, nutrition, and mind-body medicine in his clinic to support his patients. He provides cutting edge research and education for Real Mushrooms Practitioners – a group of health care professionals (MD’s, ND’s, DC’s, etc) using Real Mushrooms products in their practices. He actively works with medical doctors and oncologists setting up research studies using medicinal mushroom extracts. 

    We discussed the medicinal properties of some of the big players in the culinary and medicinal mushroom arena, including Lion's Mane, Reishi, Chanterelles.  We also discussed  some of the regular mushrooms you see in the grocery store, like white button and cremini.

    Are you aware that Lion's Mane can enhance brain health?

    Or that there are even benefits in your regular white button mushrooms?

    Or that there is a reason you should buy mushrooms organic?

    This and so much more is discussed in this fascinating episode.

    To get in touch with Dr. Mason Bresett at his practice go here:  The Health Creation Lab.

    Episode 92 - Physicians - General, Functional, and Cellular - Which One Is Right For You with Dr. Elizabeth Yurth

    Episode 92 - Physicians - General, Functional, and Cellular - Which One Is Right For You with Dr. Elizabeth Yurth

    Dr. Elizabeth Yurth is an incredibly well-accredited orthopaedic physician (with many additional credentials in longevity) & head of the Boulder Longevity Institute. 

    Dr. Yurth has expanded beyond orthopaedic surgery, beyond functional medicine, and treats her patients from a cellular medicine perspective.

    This was a very important discussion because often we can feel helpless when we don't receive the medical help we need, but it's important to discuss that other options are available. 

    In an ideal world, we would all budget for supplemental health care options if we are able to do so.  Unfortunately many don't receive the medical care they need without spending extra.

    Dr. Yurth outlines what the differences in practice are between a General Physician, a Functional Medicine Physician and a Cellular Medicine Physician.

    To get in touch with Dr. Yurth, you can contact the Boulder Longevity Institute.

    Episode 91 Thyroid: Everything You Want & Need to Know; Questions to Ask Your Doctor, Tests To Ask Your Doctor About

    Episode 91 Thyroid: Everything You Want & Need to Know; Questions to Ask Your Doctor, Tests To Ask Your Doctor About

    Thyroid imbalance is one of the most common issues for all - men and women (especially women) - to varying degrees of course AND one of the most mismanaged health issues by western medicine. 

    Thyroid affects every single cell in the body - so even if it's slightly off, you can pretty much guarantee you will have some symptoms. 

    I am not giving you medical advice here - see your own practitioner for what's right for you.  This podcast is for educational purposes only.

    I am a huge advocate for optimizing thyroid health and I talk about options here that we all have access to.

    Episode 89 Psychedelics & Plant Medicines: What You Need to Know With Tah & Kole Whitty

    Episode 89 Psychedelics & Plant Medicines: What You Need to Know With Tah & Kole Whitty

    Today I had the pleasure of interviewing the creators & facilitators of the Psychedelic Space Program and The Condor Approach, Tah and Kole Whitty.  

    Tah Whitty spent 23 years as a nurse in emergency medicine, and Kole Whitty has spent 17 years educating professionals about life’s addictions. Together, they have many years of combined experience in various shamanic traditions, and guiding performance-driven entrepreneurs to safer experiences using plant medicines.
    We talked all things relating to trauma, ptsd, and how plant medicines, or psychedelics or power plants (as they like to call them!) can heal ones past.  We also discussed stigmas and certain dogmas that are attached to psychedelics. 

    To get in touch with Tah & Kole Whitty, their website is Tahkole.com.  They're also active on Instagram at @tahkole or @mystikole or @tahfree.

    Today I had the great pleasure of interviewing Wendie Trubow, M.D., MBA  who is a functional medicine gynecologist and the co-author DIRTY GIRL: Ditch the Toxins, Look Great, and Feel Freaking Amazing! 

    We discussed various topics from the book, and how toxins in our everyday products and food can be responsible for some of the chronic conditions we live with.

    Do you know what methylation is?  How important it is?  Dr. Wendie clearly describes how this plays a part in how well we are able to detox toxins we come across in day-to-day life.

    We also get into the solutions.  What can you start doing now to clean up your choices and how you can level up starting now.
