    Intro

    Welcome to Break the Rules with Dr. Lauryn Lax – a podcast dedicated to quieting the noise in the health, food, and fitness world. Dr. Lauryn is a leading nutritionist therapist and functional medicine practitioner on a mission to help others thrive in their own lives, mind, body, and soul. And now your host, Dr. Lauryn.

    Episode

    Dr. Lauryn: [00:00:27] Well, hello, hello, hello! Welcome to another edition of the Break The Rules podcast, where we talk about quieting the noise in the health, food, and fitness world. And today I’m super pumped to be talking about one of my favorite topics with someone that I really admire and respect in this field as well.

    Talking about mold toxicity and mold illness is just something that’s very near and dear to my own heart and a journey that I did not foresee going down over the past couple years and something that really just opened my eyes to the fact that there’s over 10 million people that are wrestling with mold illness, or have been impacted and may not even actually know it. And today we’re going to be talking to Dr. Jill Crista, who is a naturopathic doctor, and best selling author, as well as nationally recognized health educator on mold related illness. And she helps people recover their health after exposure to toxic mold, in part to her own inspiration as well. Experience is always the best teacher. And Jill, thanks so much for coming on. And if you could just introduce yourself and talk a little bit about what got you doing the work you’re doing in the world today.

    Dr. Jill Crista: [00:01:41] Thank you for inviting me onto your podcast. It’s really an honor to be sharing with you.

    How I got into this world was I am in southern Wisconsin, and that is Lyme endemic region. We have a lot of cases of Lyme in Wisconsin, because of course, if you think of Wisconsin, you’re thinking of woods and deer. And I was working with these Lyme patients as the naturopathic doctor, which just like functional medicine practitioners, you work to find the cause and then treat the cause. And typically when we do that, people get better. If you have a motivated patient, it’s really them helping themselves get better. But I had this subset of Lyme patients that were just stuck. That’s sort of my Cardinal thing of Lyme disease is, if I did reasonable recommendations, they did the work, you know, even 80% of the work. And we’re doing all the reasonable things and people just weren’t responding in the way that my other patients were responding. That’s when I start to think, hmm. I wonder if this is Lyme disease? And now when that happens, I think, hmm,

    Break The Rules #93: Spore Based Probiotics: All You Need to Know with Tina Anderson Founder of Just Thrive Probiotics

    Break The Rules #93: Spore Based Probiotics: All You Need to Know with Tina Anderson Founder of Just Thrive Probiotics

    More than 95% of probiotics on shelves do not contain the probiotics they claim. In this episode with Tina Anderson of Just Thrive Probiotics we talk about why, plus the benefits of probiotics, and practical shopping tips you need to know about picking and choosing the right probiotics for you.

     

    Tina Anderson’s journey into the world of health had a unique start and some unusual turns. She began her career as a trial lawyer who specialized in settling cases by bringing both sides together, a personal passion of hers. Once her second child arrived, Tina left that high-stress job behind so she could focus on her family. Luckily, she was still able to use her considerable legal skills to point her career in a new direction as the in-house counsel for a family pharmaceutical company. But what Tina saw there made her change direction again. Frustrated by the many abuses in the pharmaceutical industry, Tina turned toward the field of natural health, and found her life’s work. She channeled her energy into learning all she could about disease prevention and good health maintenance. That led her to discover the importance of gut health and how connected and crucial it is for overall health and wellness. To share her discovery with the world, Tina along with her husband created a unique supplement that contains the superior probiotic strains of renowned researcher Dr. Simon Cutting. By promoting gut health and probiotics, Tina shares her passion for wellness, helping others live their best physical and emotional lives.
