    EP 161 - Is Histamine Making You Sick?

    EP 161 - Is Histamine Making You Sick?

    Experiencing cramps, digestive issues, or flushed skin after eating? Histamine might be the culprit.Determining the cause of digestive and gut health issues can be complex. Though many know of disorders like leaky gut, GERD, and IBS, a lesser known gut disruptor is histamine intolerance.  Histamine is a compound released by immune cells and is very important to the immune system and estrogen production. However, having too much histamine can cause digestive cramps, loose stools, urgent bowel movements, and flushing skin or hives. An increase in patients with histamine intolerance and similar gut issues is caused by a number of factors: Today, people aren’t eating enough vegetables or enough variety of vegetables.  People are eating too much processed food that’s high in sugar and low in fiber. Humans no longer ferment foods regularly, which used to be a regular practice in the winter. Everyone is exposed to medications, and there is more self-prescribing and self-diagnosing than ever before.  More toxic substances are present in everyday household items like makeup and cleaning supplies. Americans are generally undernourished because diets lack the proper vitamins and minerals. Fortunately, histamine intolerance can be managed with a low-histamine diet.  Listen as Nour Zibdeh joins Dr. Taz to discuss histamine intolerance.

His Functional Forum helps healthcare professionals explore alternate routes to insurance, predictive and preventative medicine best practices, and learn more about group visits, in which multiple patients experiencing the same issue can seek treatment together.   Listen as James Haskell joins Dr. Taz to discuss the evolution of medicine and a cure for loneliness. 

    EP 159 - Prevention and Reversal of the Cognitive Decline of Alzheimer's

    EP 159 - Prevention and Reversal of the Cognitive Decline of Alzheimer's

    Alzheimer’s disease can and should be prevented. Dr. Dale Bredesen explains how.In recent years, Alzheimer's disease has affected more and more people and it’s hitting at an earlier age. It’s the third leading cause of death in the United States. Two-thirds of Alzheimer's patients are women. As recently as a few years ago, there was no hope for people diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. However, recent research shows that those who come in early can have a very good prognosis. The key is prevention and early detection.  In addition to genetic testing, adults age 45 and older should have conversations with their physician about lifestyle factors that can cause Alzheimer’s. They should also start getting regular cognoscopies, a test used to evaluate the risk factors that can cause neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's.  Dr. Dale Bredesen explains that a healthy plant-based diet that’s mildly ketogenic, stress management, and regular sleep patterns can help prevent Alzheimer’s and other neuro-degenerative diseases. Listen as Dr. Dale Bredesen joins Dr. Taz to discuss the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. 

    EP 158 - Calling All Martyr Moms: The Power of Walking

    EP 158 - Calling All Martyr Moms: The Power of Walking

    Regular walks with friends can help women reduce loneliness and the risk of heart disease.We’re experiencing a loneliness crisis in our country. A recent study showed that 73% of women admit to feeling lonely. We’re simultaneously facing a fitness and wellness crisis. Despite the fact that we have more access to information about how to stay healthy than ever before, we’re having trouble turning that knowledge into action.  The solution to both of these issues might be simpler than you think — establishing a regular walking practice with other women. Studies have shown that women who walk regularly with friends are 2.5 times less likely to often feel lonely. A regular walking practice also reduces your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, dementia, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and several types of cancer.  Listen as 99 Walks founder Joyce Shulman joins Dr. Taz to discuss regular communal walking. 

    EP 157 - Are Your Beliefs Hijacking Your Life?

    EP 157 - Are Your Beliefs Hijacking Your Life?

    Stop running on autopilot and learn how to lead an extraordinary life.Every person has the potential to lead an extraordinary life and become an extraordinary leader, parent, professional, or spouse. But, often our subconscious mind gets in our way and holds us back. The way our subconscious mind operates is established by the age of seven, so our brain is essentially functioning on code written by a seven-year-old. In order to find your calling and be the shaper of your life, not a victim of your circumstances, you need to stop living on autopilot and actively re-write the code — and your beliefs. This starts with looking internally and honestly examining your beliefs. You need to take responsibility for the way you’ve been living  and learn to reconstruct your beliefs to become the person you’d like to be. And Darren Gold explains how to do that in 10 minutes a day. Listen as Darren joins Dr. Taz to discuss how to live an extraordinary life.
