    RHR: Is Dairy Harmful or Beneficial?

    No matter where you personally stand on dairy products, there’s no denying that it’s a contentious issue in the nutrition community. In this episode of Revolution Health Radio, Chris reviews what the scientific evidence says about the benefits of dairy products, the actual prevalence of lactose intolerance and allergies, the (false) theory that dairy contributes to osteoporosis, the connection between dairy consumption and better bone health, why full-fat dairy is better than low- or nonfat dairy, and the ways that you can still benefit from dairy even if you can’t digest lactose.

    Doctor, clinical researcher, and author Dr. Michael Ruscio joins Chris in this episode of Revolution Health Radio to discuss the important and often overlooked connection between gut health, nutrient absorption, and thyroid function. They talk about why so many people are misdiagnosed with hypothyroidism and misprescribed thyroid medication, the myth that Hashimoto’s always leads to hypothyroidism, how gut symptoms can be similar to symptoms of hypothyroidism and how patients can be misdiagnosed with hypothyroidism when they really have underlying gut disorders, and why people with subclinical hypothyroidism should generally not be prescribed thyroid hormone.

    RHR: Is Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance Real?

    RHR: Is Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance Real?

    For decades, the mainstream medical view of gluten intolerance has been relatively black or white. But celiac disease is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to gluten intolerance—there are many other ways that sensitivity to wheat and/or gluten can manifest in the body. In this episode of Revolution Health Radio, we’ll examine the science behind non-celiac wheat sensitivity, including how a person can be gluten intolerant without having celiac disease, the signs and symptoms of gluten intolerance, and why current testing for celiac disease is falling short.

Thank you for women specific info on intermittent fasting!

Thank you for this topic on intermittent fasting for women. I have struggled with fasting successfully and this info was helpful to understand how to try IF again in a way that will go WITH my female body.
I’d be thrilled to see shows that incorporate information for when a woman is pregnant, nursing, and supporting the health of very young children.
Thanks again.

Informercial

Been listening to Chris since the beginning. Good health orientated podcast but lately seems to be slipping into infomercial territory. Guests always touting the latest greatest product and now Chris selling his own products and saying you need these products because diet doesn’t cover them $$$. After a decade of listening I’m going to delete and stick with less biased podcasts such as Peter Attia
