Full of knowledge!!

You have so much knowledge about things such a sibo, gut issues because of fodmaps, etc. I’ve never found anyone that seemed to have any tips on this stuff! Own some products from your website and absolutely love all of the information you provide us listeners with :)

Glorified sales and marketing cast

Some decent information, but often just information couched in a sales pitch for a book, product, program, etc. And, the worst part is he chastises providers who have something to sell. He has little self awareness. On the podcast with PaleoValley entrepreneur, they repeatedly refer to listeners as consumers and customers. I know you have to make a living, but at least be aware that is what you are doing and don’t assume you are superior to or above others doing the same thing.

Full of practical gems

Dr. Ruscio has a terrific rapport with his guests, and offers plenty of practical advice to his listeners. People tend to poo poo functional medicine doctors but I have a great respect for them. As someone who has an autoimmune disorder (Hashimoto's), I've struggled to get a handle on this and haven't been able to find a doctor who truly understands what I've had to deal with so finding this podcast has been a blessing. Highly recommend!
