    Is all laboratory testing regulated? 
    Are the results accurate?
    Will a food sensitivity test tell me what is causing the problem?

    Our bodies are constantly processing smells around us. The smell of freshly made coffee, the smell of gasoline as you fill up your car, or the smell of the laundry aisle at the grocery store. We are constantly surrounded by scents, but we don't always pay attention to them and can’t stop living, so what are we to do?

     

    When we smell something, our brains react. Sometimes, this reaction can lead to migraines and other symptoms. In this episode, we'll talk about what happens in your brain when you smell something and why some smells trigger migraines for some people but not others.

Encouraging, insightful podcast

Thank you for putting out such an encouraging podcast! I thought I was doomed to be sick forever. I was told I would have migraines until I hit menopause, which at the time was a long way away. My breaking point was after a visit to a migraine clinic. I cried for most of the appointment, sharing how was sick 50% of the time and struggled to live a normal life. I shared my desire to try a natural remedy since the drugs were not helping. After crying my heart out, the neurologist prescribed me a new class of migraine medicine. I couldn’t believe it! I asked if the pharmaceutical company was giving her money to be a sales woman. It is as if she didn’t even listen to me. It felt so hopeless that I would never get better. Learning that there is a path to healing is so empowering! Thank you for caring about women who struggle with migraines!

Total Quack

I have enough of an education and understanding of anatomy and physiology to understand that she is completely off. She literally says an entire piece of broccoli ends up in your liver. It doesn't work that way. Nutrient molecules and blood go through the hepatic portal vein, NOT pieces of food. Also the cohost seems completely braindead and just strokes the main host's ego with vocal fry and and constant "Omggg wow you're like totally blowing my mind."
