#82. Supplement Spotlight: Probiotics
This episode is a Supplement Spotlight on a supplement we are all familiar with - probiotics. I break down what probiotics are and why we need them, as well as going in depth on the important questions like: Is there evidence to support probiotics work? Can they survive in our gut if they even make it that far? Is it just a trend that doesn't live up the hype? Have they been shown to help any health conditions? What type should you be taking if any? Can you get probiotics from foods? I share my personally stance on probiotics, takeaways and - of course - which plantbased foods have probiotics already in them.

#80. The Dental Health Episode
I can't believe it took me 80 podcast episodes to finally talk about dental health, even though it was the catalyst that started my entire plantbased health journey. As many of you know my mom’s Congestive Heart Failure was a direct result of an infection in her mouth from a root canal that went untreated and then the infection moved to her heart. Yes, our dental health is connected to our heart health and many other health issues you may never have heard of. Today I am covering everything dental health related including:
Root Canals & Disease
Dental Health Linked to Heart Health, Cancers & Brain Health
Cavities & Healing them Naturally
Keeping Our Teeth Disease Free
Best & Worst Foods for Dental Health
How to Keep Our Teeth Disease Free
What to Look for & Avoid in Toothpastes
