Is organic food healthier?
Play • 17 min

Buying organic is a booming food trend. It is also a trend that comes with a health halo for being more nutritious, healthier and tastier than conventional produce. But how do these claims stack up when you look at the research behind them? And is the price premium you pay for organic worth it? In this podcast, I look at the health merits of organic food and unpick those health and nutrition claims.

#85 The Brain Series (Part 3 of 3). Transforming your Brain with Dr Tara Swart
What if we could harness the power of our thoughts to change the function of our brain and manifest the perfect life we’ve always wanted for ourselves. You might think I’m talking about new-age self help sensationalism, quantum physics and hype. But I’m actually talking about concepts rooted in ancient philosophy, that are being proven by breakthroughs in neuroscience and neuroimaging. I’m delighted to be chatting with Dr Tara Swart - a neuroscientist, medical doctor, executive advisor, Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan, and author of best-seller ‘The Source’. A book that distills the principles and actions of how we can harness the power of our conscious mind to alter the world around us. Tara is passionate about disseminating simple, pragmatic neuroscience-based messages that change the way people live and work. She personally advises a small number of individuals via personal recommendation only, and speaks at major conferences globally. Today we talk about: * The field of nutrition, the microbiota and how that has an impact on our thoughts * Ancient wisdom and how this has been gradually explained through the lens of neuroscience * The science explained the “law of attraction” * How to manifest your thoughts into reality * Brain agility and how we train it * Neuroplasticity * Psychobiotics * Brain healthy foods, Brain healthy exercises and Brain healthy thoughts * Why action boarding works * Tara’s personal story of leaving her job, divorce and moving country all at the same time and how she harnessed the power of her mind to maintain resilience “There’s no fate but what we make for ourselves” – The Terminator Do be sure to check out The Doctor's Kitchen Website for full show notes and social media links for this and all our other episodes.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

250: How to Heal from SIBO Without SIBO Taking Over Your Life w/ Phoebe Lapine
If You Want To Heal Your SIBO You Should: * Address the three main risk factor buckets and identify the root cause of your bacteria overgrowth * Find a bodyworker to help you navigate which protocol will work best for you * Embrace a beautifully diverse diet by focusing on an anti-inflammatory protocol SIBO, or Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth, affects millions of people but can be difficult to nail down. Unlike other gut imbalances, SIBO happens when there is an overgrowth of bacteria in the upper part of your digestive tract. Because of the importance of the location of this bacteria, it takes the right support to heal your gut and reduce your inflammation. Healing SIBO Through Food with Phoebe Lapine Phoebe Lapine believes that food can and should be medicine. A writer, gluten-free chef, culinary instructor, Hashimoto’s advocate and so much more, Phoebe is here to share her story of autoimmune disease and healing SIBO from the inside out. What You Need To Know About SIBO Due to stress, lifestyle factors, and hormones, women suffer from SIBO far more often than men. It is important to understand the connections between all of these factors so that you can uncomplicate your symptoms and work on finding the healing protocol that is right for you. Everything from structural issues in your gut to your body's ability to kill bacteria can have an impact on your likelihood of developing SIBO. Gas, bloating, thyroid hormones, and so much more can play a role here, which is why it is essential to equip yourself with the necessary knowledge to address your gut dysbiosis in the best way possible. Finding the Right Treatment for Your Body Addressing bacteria overgrowth takes an individualized approach to be the most effective possible. Antibiotics, herbs, and different diets can all be helpful depending on your unique sensitivity, lifestyle, and detox methods. It is important to know what you are working with before you start to treat your symptoms. Phoebe suggests starting from a place of anti-inflammatory protocols. You don't have to stop enjoying food to cure your gut bacteria; all it takes is the knowledge to guide yourself through gut complications and get to a place of a beautifully diverse diet. Phoebe is a real example of the amazing possibilities of healing SIBO and clearing up what is going on in the body through food, lifestyle, and body kindness. Do you or someone you love suffer from SIBO? Share which of Phoebe’s tips you are going to incorporate into your daily routine with me in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “Sometimes you just need help getting onto a higher plateau of healing.” (18:56) “At the end of the day, this is all just connected tissue, and fascia and soft tissue muscles, and we have to make sure those are working, which is a whole different ballgame from the bacteria situation.” (24:58) - Dr. Mariza “SIBO to me explains why a low fodmap diet is effective in terms of symptoms, because if you have perfectly normal bacteria in the wrong place too far up your digestive tract, and you feed them the foods they enjoy most, then, of course, you are going to have some sort of gas as part of that, having it be too far up your intestinal tract as well.” (33:18) “It's never just SIBO, there is usually kind of a bigger issue at play, even if it is not necessarily causing the issue in of itself.” (33:33) “Diversity is the spice of life, and we don't want to be overloading our system with large quantities of one ingredient.” (38:31) In This Episode * Why women are more susceptible to SIBO than men (12:21) * The three different buckets that can impact your gut and hormone symbiosis (19:38) * Where to start when testing for SIBO and other digestive issues (25:42) * Which foods you should be focusing on to fix your SIBO and inflammation (31:34) * How to embrace the diversity of life with anti-inflammatory versions of comfort food (38:25) Resources Mentioned: Order the SIBO Made Simple Book Here SIBO Made Simple Website SIBO Made Simple Podcast Feed Me Phoebe Website The Wellness Project Website Follow Phoebe on Instagram Dr. Allison Siebecker Website Related Episodes: Essentially You Episode #230: Dismantling Myths About Leaky Gut, Gut Health and Probiotics with Tina Anderson Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative

#57 Fatal Conveniences™: Tea Bags: Are They Safe?
Tea is an amazing way to utilize the health benefits of plants. I drink tea daily, and you should, too. But do we really want to soak a bag made of who-knows-what in hot water and drink it? Folks, it’s time to talk about store-bought tea bags. Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health, and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Most store-bought tea bags are made of layered plastic. Yes, your healthy green, black and other herbal teas come in a bag full of toxic plastic. Then you’re seeping this plastic bag into hot water as its toxins leak into the liquid. You’re drinking plastic tea! This is terrible, guys. Tea is a healthy product. And we’re transforming it into something unhealthy. Why? Because it’s cheaper for companies to make a leak-free bag out of plastic than other materials. This is just silly. In this segment, I’m going to break down how and why tea bags are made with toxic plastic and what it’s doing to your body. I don’t want you to stop drinking tea, I just want you to be aware of better alternatives. I prefer using a stainless steel mesh tea ball or just making loose leaf teas. But there are some amazing tea companies out there making safe tea bags, so I’ll tell you all about those, too. Listen up, guys, it’s tea time. Other info in this segment: The history of tea bags What chemicals lurk in the tea bag materials The major brands to avoid The majesty that is loose leaf tea Tea balls Responsible brands that make safe tea bags Links & Resources: Video: How to Test Your Tea Bags for Plastic Plastic teas release billions of microparticles Time Magazine: A Brief History of the Tea Bag BBC News: Microplastics Video: What Tea Bags Brands Contain Plastic?

Episode 212 | Physical Therapy Informed By Acceptance And Commitment Therapy In A Correctional Facility With Mary Doyle, PT
You'll learn about a physical therapist who has evolved her work through Pain Neuroscience Education onto Cognitive Behavioral Therapy using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in the unique environment of a prison. My guest is Mary Doyle, who has been a practicing physical therapist since 1995. Her career started out in outpatient orthopedics. She eventually moved to home care where she treated both geriatric and pediatric patients in the home. Looking for a change from driving and the ever-increasing hurdles of insurance, she moved to correctional facility work in 2016. She functions in a primary care physical therapy practice within a prison environment. She combines physical therapy with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for the treatment of pain and other chronic lifestyle conditions. You'll learn how Mary uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to target the important psychosocial variables for prisoners in the prison environment. If you're interested in learning about combining Pain Neuroscience Education, mindfulness, and ACT like Mary does, make sure to check out my latest book, Radical Relief: A Guide to Overcome Chronic Pain. It is available on Amazon and in most countries. Without further ado, let's begin and let's meet Mary Doyle and learn about combining ACT with physical therapy. Love the show?
