    418 – Show Your Heart Some Love

    418 – Show Your Heart Some Love

    In this interview with Monique Wellise we will discuss the most important nutrients for cardiovascular support. It is axiomatic that a heart cannot be fully healthy if one is not well-nourished. A person who is well-nourished will do better than someone who is not. Is this even debatable? I think not.



    This concept of being well nourished is at the foundation of all health. The body is dependent on an ongoing supply of the essential nutrients to function properly and to support the structure of healthy tissue. In this interview we will discuss Omega-3 Fish Oil, CoQ10 and Magnesium as perhaps the 3 most important.

    416 – Immune Support and the Endocannabinoid System

    416 – Immune Support and the Endocannabinoid System

    “Think of your immune system as an internal network of cells, organs, tissue, chemicals, proteins, enzymes, and hormones that fight off infections and foreign invasions of viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, etc. Your immune system is always at the ready and monitoring your body’s health like a military detail protecting a physical border. When your immune system senses infection or bodily invasion, it will send antibodies or secrete chemicals in the body to help defend it.



    Your immune system is usually on duty or activated without you even realizing it. If you have ever had a cold, fever, or mild inflammation, then those are good signs that your immune system is activated and working. Those are physical signs and evidence that your immune system is healthy, as unpleasant as the experience may have been.

    414 – Is Delta-8 THC a Dietary Supplement?

    414 – Is Delta-8 THC a Dietary Supplement?

    In this interview, Dr. Douglas Kalman discusses some of the legal and regulatory issues regarding Delta-8 THC. He will contrast the differences between CBD and Delta-8 THC derived from hemp. Is it legal on a federal and or state level? It does seem that FDA is beginning to take some action towards Delta-8 THC.



    Many people think that anything derived from hemp is now legal because of the 2018 farm bill. Dr. Kalman discusses the distinctions and what consumers need to know. It seems confusing because many make assumptions that are not necessarily true.

    413- What is the Most Effective Probiotic and Why?

    413- What is the Most Effective Probiotic and Why?

    In this interview with Ross Pelton we will discuss probiotics and postbiotic metabolites. Specifically we will discuss Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic and contrast that with common and conventional probiotics. Safe to say there is a huge distinction to be made.



    The popularization of probiotics in the marketplace has led to the commoditization and of cheap and largely ineffective probiotics. This has also led to many consumers being confused as to how to choose a quality product. This is the story of Dr. Ohhira and his development of his innovative probiotic supplements. Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic is unique and stands alone.

Challenges you to think about your health

Alternative health gets a bad rap from mainstream medicine but I feel it's important to make your own decisions about your health care, with all evidence in mind. Steve's podcast is an incredible trove of alt health information, with terrific guests knowledgeable in their fields. Highly recommended for anyone interested in enhancing their health.
