Many of us believe that our genes doom us to disorders that run in our families. But as Dr. Lynch reveals in the Dirty Genes Podcast, YOU can influence your own genetic destiny.
Your genes don't determine your destiny. They determine your susceptibility.
There's no reason to biohack your way into health. That's inefficient, expensive, and unnecessary. Your body wants to be nurtured. Not hacked.
Instead of biohacking, learn how your genes work. Understand what makes them dirty, and then give them what they need so they can perform. So you can perform.
What are Dirty Genes?
A dirty gene is one that is unable to perform at its best. It's slacking. It's struggling. It's burdened.
You have 18,000 genes. Many of them are dirty right now. These dirty genes are causing you troubles every day (that you may not even be aware of!).
Each week, on the Dirty Genes Podcast, Dr. Lynch will show you how genes get dirty so you can clean yours up.

Episode 15: Overcoming Recurrent Miscarriage with Nutritionist Kinsey Jackson
Have you experienced a miscarriage or multiple miscarriages? If you, or someone you know, is struggling with this, this episode is for you.
The amount of actionable information in this podcast is, frankly, almost impossible to find on the internet or in doctor offices. This is years of research, experience, pain, and ultimately, total joy, all in 90 minutes.
Miscarriages are common. How common? They occur in 15-20% of all pregnancies, typically in the first trimester. After the first miscarriage, the risk of having another is about 20%. After three or more consecutive miscarriages, the risk increases to 43%. This is known as recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL).
Join me today as I interview nutritionist Kinsey Jackson. You'll learn how she overcame a recurrent loss to bring her rainbow baby into the world. She shares her story, knowledge, and compassion with you in an episode of the Dirty Genes Podcast. You do not want to miss this.
Special Bonus >>> Kinsey put together a resource guide for those struggling with recurrent pregnancy loss. It's packed with invaluable information for you and your doctors. Download it FREE by clicking here: https://resources.seekinghealth.com/recurrent-miscarriage
*Please note that this episode contains sensitive subject matter surrounding miscarriage that some might find triggering or upsetting. Please proceed gently and at your own pace.

Episode 14: Histamine Intolerance And How It May Be Affecting You!
Are you struggling with an annoying, recurring symptom that you have no clue how to help make it go away or at least improve?
Chronic runny nose? Nosebleeds? Sensitive to EMF? Can't fall asleep? Sudden irritability? Itchy skin randomly? Hot all the time? Red-faced big time after exercise? Sensitive to alcohol? Breathing difficulties?
Most of these don't require a run to your doctor. If they do, your doctor just bandaids you with medications or stuff that doesn't work.
What you're dealing with here is a lack of awareness by the medical establishment.
It's gaining traction - finally - but most health professionals still have no clue how to address it properly.
This is a MUST LISTEN to episode - and a must share with others episode.

Episode 12: Am I Getting Too Much Folic Acid?
If you're human, you're getting too much folic acid.
Yes, it is that simple.
Shame on me for giving the conclusion before you even tuned into my latest episode on the Dirty Genes Podcast.
Yes, I'm not a marketing genius. I'm a research nerd that is here guiding you towards optimal health.
Folic acid is a road block to your health.
Folic acid flat out dirties your genes.
Which ones? Hmmm. Now that I won't reveal right away.
Listen. Many people think that if they don't have the MTHFR polymorphism they can comfortably use folic acid.
That is so wrong.
There are other folate genes that get seriously messed up from folic acid.
How easy is it to mess up your folate genes with folic acid?
Tune into the Dirty Genes Podcast and find out.
Hey, I guess I'm becoming a better marketing guy after all.
Seriously though, if you're getting folic acid, it's time to stop.
If you're trying to convince others to stop using folic acid but struggling to convince them, here's more ammo for you.
You're a good friend for trying to help them.
You gotta put your own oxygen mask on first, though.
Do that by learning more.
This episode will help you understand the WHY.

Episode 11: Folate vs. Folic Acid
Taking Folic Acid supplements is like using a tired horse drawing a 3-wheeled wagon as your primary method of transportation.
You just don't do that.
Retire the horse out to pasture.
Folic acid is flat out OLD NEWS.
Out with the old. In with the new. In with the better.
In this episode on the Dirty Genes Podcast: Folate vs. Folic Acid, I give you the facts on folic acid.
It's time you hear the truth.
Here it is.
Also love whatever Dr. Lynch puts out
I’ve learned SO much from him over the years. I like these podcasts, they are easy to listen to, and they are easily shared to someone not as familiar with the subjects. That said, I preferred his Facebook lives 50 times over these, as I learned a lot from our direct questions and interaction with him. Still, these podcasts have tremendous value.
Histamine podcast - perfect timing!
I love learning from Dr Ben! Over the past two weeks I have struggled with symptoms of histamine intolerance (great timing). I also now think our entire family does. My FD put me on Molybdenum but after my research and now listening to this podcast I have other tools to add. The local Utah allergies are out (think I have sensitivity to sage) and my bucket must be dumping. Could this time of year (allergies) cause a lot of people to dump/overflow? Would love to know what to add to lower the seasonal allergies. Great job! Keep up the teachings and action items at the end!
Thanks for all the info on histamines. I’m really struggling with those, and your Probiota HistaminX has been the only thing that has really helped so far. I need to dig into your book!
