139: Vegan Skin Care and Cosmetics with Kari Knight DCNP
In this episode of Veggie Doctor Radio, I chat with Kari Knight, DCNP about vegan skin care and cosmetics. About featured guest: Kari was mostly vegetarian most of her life. She integrated a whole food plant-based diet for health reasons, but then her heart opened up to the ethical and compassionate reasons for veganism. Still early on in her journey, she is learning and exploring. Because she is a passionate dermatology nurse practitioner, I reached out to Kari to help me understand more about vegan skin care as cosmetics so that I could be myself be better informed and share this information with my listeners. This is an introductory conversation on this topic and I am sure we will re-visit these questions again, but she gives us a great place to start so that we can make better informed decisions in our own skin care.

EP49 | SIBO Relapse, Retreatment & Prevention + New Therapy Ideas That Give Us Hope with Dr. Allison Siebecker
We are ending the podcast where we began: with the incredible Dr. Allison Siebecker. In this wind-down episode, I wanted to cover some frequently asked questions around relapse, retreatment and prevention. So many people end up in cycles of SIBO that they feel they will never exit from. But there is so much to be hopefully about, even for chronic SIBO cases, and this conversation really shows why. Not only does Dr. Siebecker help troubleshoot some scenarios of stubborn SIBO, she gives an overview of an entire new toolkit of therapies that have shown incredible clinical results. None of these ideas involve aggressive herbals or antibiotics—in fact, very few require any pills at all. Even if you feel you know everything there is to know about SIBO, I assure you this episode will open your mind to a whole new world of healing. A quick taste of what we’ll cover: * How many courses of herbs and antibiotics are too many * What are the signs that someone is reacting to a treatment itself or die-off * How long do you wait to retest after treatment? And when is retesting not worth it * When to start prokinetics and how long to take them for * A whole arsenal of new therapies: Frequency Specific Microcurrent, Neural retraining systems, Neural therapy, Electrical stimulation, Myofascial release, Craniosacral therapy, Hypnotherapy, Immunoglobulins, Low Dose Immunotherapy, Peptides, Tapping and more! Resources, mentions and notes: * The SIBO Made Simple Book – ON SHELVES NOW!! * Submit your book receipt to join Gut Heal Bootcamp on 1/18 * Sign up for my Low FODMAP Cooking Classes (1/27 is Italian Stallion!) * Pay it forward: write a book review on Amazon to support my work (you don't have to have bought it there) * Join the SIBO Made Simple Facebook Community Page * Subscribe to the newsletter (and receive a free low FODMAP cookbook) * Follow me on Instagram to keep the conversation going * Dr. Siebecker's Website * Dr. Siebecker’s New Therapies for Treating SIBO Summit * Bysmouth biofilm remedies: Paul Anderson’s formula, Priority Biofilm Phase 2 Advanced * Carol McMakin – FSM * Gupta Program + DNRS This episode is brought to you by SIBO Made Simple – THE BOOK!

#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.

IFS and Masculinity and Jericho Circles with Steve Spitzer and Glenn Williams
On today's episode, I chat with Steve Spitzer and Glenn Williams. Steve, Emeritus Professor of Sociology at Suffolk University in Boston, has taught, researched, and written on crime, justice and social control for three decades. He is Level 2 IFS trained and has presented his use of the IFS model inside prisons at multiple IFS annual conferences and has written articles in the IFS newsletter, The Outlook. In 2002, he founded the Jericho Circle Project, a non-profit organization that seeks to 'bring down the walls' by creating men's support groups in correctional facilities. Since the project began, almost 1000 incarcerated men have sat in Jericho Circles in county, state, and federal correctional institutions in Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island. Glenn participated in the Jericho groups when he was incarcerated for 21 years and later met Steve in a different context. Glenn now 'pays it forward' with his organization, Our House Boston. Glenn is Level One IFS trained and is passionate about spreading the word about our True Essence, especially to black men in urban settings. Glenn is a reentry advocate and community investor who works with various individuals, families, organizations and businesses to raise awareness about and create solutions to the challenges of incarceration and prisoner reintegration. This conversation is AMAZING. I cannot convey this in words. Here are some themes: 'Self' Discovery Masculinity Men's work inside prisons, power of vulnerability, and speaking for parts 'Climbing out of the man box'/Taking off masks The importance of power in manliness for Black Men Glenn states, "Who I pretend to be (what my community and society says I need to be in order to survive) and my Essence are not the same thing." And, "IFS offers the opportunity for Self Discovery and Self Exploration (inside and outside of prison). Discovering that my shame and guilt are parts of me and do not have to define who I am at my core." To find more about Jericho circle go to https://jerichocircle.org/ Check out this 90 minute documentary on the nature of their group work that was filmed at California State Prison Sacramento. That film, produced by the group that initially mentored them in the work (Inside Circle), will give you a taste of the kind of work done (albeit at a somewhat higher level of intensity than is typical of Jericho Circle’s groups) on their weekends.

Episode 440: COVID-19 Vaccines Part 1 - mRNA Vaccine Technology
The Whole View, Episode 440: COVID-19 Vaccines Part 1 - mRNA Vaccine Technology Welcome back to episode 440 of the Whole View. (0:27) Stacy explains that today's topic is one she and Sarah have received the most questions on possibly ever. Stacy also lets the audience know that this show will be a 2-parter, possibly a 3-parter depending on how deep in they get. This show has been long in the making because she and Sarah had to wait for the research publication. Then Sarah has done her own research on top of it to prepare for this show. Sarah shares that she's been following this topic for about a year now: ever since the novel coronavirus was sequenced. It's important they lay out the science for listeners, look at the technology and history of vaccines, answer the frequently asked questions, and bust the myths surrounding this topic. (2:08) She and Stacy decided to divide the show into multiple parts to take their time and do the subject justice. Stacy takes a minute to address how polarizing the word "vaccine" can be. And she and Sarah are aware of this. She wants to assure listeners they understand vaccines are a personal decision for everyone, just like every other health and medical choices are. Stacy and Sarah are here to provide the information you need to be an informed consumer. Note On Vaccines In this episode, they will discuss the mRNA vaccine technology in the history of vaccines. (2:40) Next week's episode, Sarah and Stacy will go over the safety and efficacy data for the first two vaccines, Emergency Use Authorization, the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and the Moderna vaccine. Sarah and Stacy will discuss their thoughts on vaccinations going forward. But Stacy reminds listeners that it's never aimed at telling others what to do. She also reminds listeners that she and Sarah are not medical professionals. If you have questions regarding the vaccine for yourself or your family, discuss them with your doctor. There is a lot of information that is both true and not true floating around on the web. Stacy is very excited to talk about the science and breakdown behind these vaccines and gives a little background on herself for context. Both Stacy and her mother have anaphylactic reactions to things like gluten due to multiple autoimmune disorders. Stacy has brought up to Sarah whether or not she thinks getting the vaccine is a good idea for someone with health issues like Stacy's mom. Stacy also wonders how having the coronavirus, but not having the antibodies, will affect her if given the vaccine. Listener Questions Sarah reiterates just how many questions they've received from listeners around this subject. (5:10) She takes a moment to share a few she thinks accurately sum up what they want to cover in this episode. Mae wrote: I am sure you don't want to cover this topic, but you are a source I highly trust as I am sure a lot of your other followers do. Would you consider doing a show about the Covid vaccines out there? It's so hard to know what to believe these days.....Not looking to be told what to do, but merely to be presented the information as you do so well in breaking down the real science that is not filtered through such a biased lens. Meghan added: Can you please do an episode explaining the science behind vaccines, and explaining how they really work, including the new Covid one. You always do an excellent job of explaining things well in a relatively easy to understand way without shortcutting good science. Stacy assures listeners that they will do their very best to break everything down. However, you might still have questions or have heard something different that might conflict with prior information. Stacy encourages you to reach out via the contact forms on the website for any follow-up. If you're part of the Patreon family, use direct access to talk with Sarah and Stacy there. She also encourages listeners not to attack the topic on social media or to put too much emphasis on things you hear without any sources cited. A Brief History of Vaccine Technology Sarah starts off by going way back into the history of vaccines. (8:27) The very first form of inoculation was called variolation. The first variolation for smallpox dates to the 1600s in China and Ottoman Empire and practiced first in Britain and colonial Massachusetts in 1721. They took the pus from someone suffering a natural smallpox infection. And then they'd would then rub it onto punctured or cut skin of someone who had never been exposed. If the procedure didn't kill you, you'd have immunity to the illness. However, Sarah noted it was pretty successful in terms of early inoculation. Sarah explains briefly how cell memory aids in fighting episodes of re-exposures. This is what gives us immunity or less a severe immune response when exposed. Development Of A Smallpox Vaccine Dr. Edward Jenner is considered the founder of vaccinology in the West. He noticed many milkmaids were immune to smallpox. He realized they were getting infected with cowpox (a related variola virus that is relatively harmless to humans), and the infection built an immunity to smallpox. In 1796, he inoculated his gardener's 8-year-old son by variolating cowpox pus from a milkmaid's hand. Jenner then demonstrated this immunity to smallpox by exposing the boy to smallpox 6 weeks later, and he didn't get sick. That's a lot of confidence! And also, not cool. Jenner then repeated this experiment multiple times over a couple of years with different people and published his methodology in 1798. He named his process vaccination because the cowpox virus is called vaccinia. Doctors started administering this as a smallpox vaccine all over the world in 1798. This is the first instance of understanding that exposing the body to a weaker version of a virus could stimulate enough of an immune response to tricker cellular memory. Over the 18th and 19th centuries, systematic implementation of mass smallpox immunization culminated in its global eradication in 1979. It took just about 200 years from the start of this vaccine to the eradication of smallpox. Other Vaccine Development Louis Pasteur's experiments spearheaded the development of live attenuated cholera vaccine in 1897. And then an inactivated anthrax vaccine in 1904. Plague vaccine was also invented in the late 19th Century. Between 1890 and 1950, bacterial vaccine development proliferated, including the Bacillis-Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination, which is still in use today. In 1923, Alexander Glenny perfected a method to inactivate tetanus toxin with formaldehyde. The same method was used to develop a vaccine against diphtheria in 1926. Pertussis vaccine development took considerably longer, and a whole-cell vaccine was first licensed for use in the US in 1948. mRNA vaccine technology Sarah tells the audience that many of the childhood vaccines given to children today were developed 70 – 100 years ago. There have been advancements in the vial today that are different from what was in the vial back then. However, the vaccine technology is pretty much the same now, and it was that then. Sarah underlines that mRNA vaccine technology was one of the biggest advancements since Jenner and Pasteur's experiments. Modern Vaccines When looking at vaccines today, they all have the same basic ingredients (18:20) They all work by stimulating an immune response against what's called an antigen. An antigen is a bad thing that makes us sick. The body develops immunological memory by the adaptive immune system in response to the antigen. It's the same way our immune system develops memory when we've been naturally infected. But because vaccines use weaker viruses, it goes without the danger of natural infection. Vaccinations are very costly and big investments to undertake. So we really only develop vaccines against illnesses that are very, very bad and have a huge impact on society. Up un…

137: Anxiety, Gut Health, Medical Freedom and Some of the Best Health Hacks
In this fully packed episode, we chat with Dr. Nichole Morris about a variety of topics around women’s health, including some of the best lifestyle hacks and strategies that we can implement in our day-to-day life for overall vitality. You can find all the info and links about this episode at https://holisticwellness.ca/episode137. Topics Discussed in this Episode: * Root cause medicine * The connection between anxiety and gut health * The causes of anxiety * Homeopathy and biotherapeutic drainage * The role the liver plays in our healing * Lifestyle hacks for overall vitality * Medical freedom and transparency in healthcare * The PAR-Q * Why 5G could be harmful to our health Key Takeaways: * Human beings are complex. We’re a physical body, but we’re also a mental, emotional and spiritual body. The three all work together, and they’re so intertwined. * Gut health and emotional trauma are the biggest places where anxiety comes into play. * Homeopathy is the concept of “like cures like”. * Biotherapeutic drainage is a combination of low-dose multiple remedies that work down to the cellular level to open up the cells and drain them of the toxic burden that they’re holding on to. * Medical freedom is having the ability to choose what goes in and on your body, what medications you choose and don’t choose, and what surgery you want to have or not have. * 5G means fifth generation cellular communication data. It can also mean the frequency or gigahertz. * 5G from your phone is a much higher frequency than what we see in 4G and WiFi in a smaller wave. Because the waves are small, they don’t penetrate large things. For this reason, we need small cell towers up to every 500 feet or closer. The wavelength can penetrate millimeters into the skin surface. Action Steps: * Lifestyle hacks: * Use castor oil packs to support your liver. * Do skin brushing. * Practice four square breathing. * Take cold showers. * Turn your phone off at night or at least put it on airplane mode. * Spend time in nature. * Give yourself a “Mental Health Day” once in a while. * Eat “real” food. * Drink a lot of water. * Take supplements. * Move your body as much as you can. * Build boundaries with toxic people. Nichole said: “Most of our physical ailments or disease or disturbance in our body comes from an emotional sphere.” “My goal is to make sure people have the information that they need to make very informed healthcare decisions. And in a time like 2020 and 2021, I think we are seeing an emergence of the importance of you -- the individual, the listener -- being your own best doctor.” Thanks for listening!
