62. Sugarproof & The Hidden Dangers of Sugar That Are Putting Your Child's Health at Risk - with Michael Goran & Emily Ventura #WellnessWednesdays
Play • 1 hr 9 min

What we feed our children will affect not only how they feel, how they learn, and how they behave today but how they function in the future. So, it’s our job as parents to look out for them and make sure they’re nourishing their bodies — unfortunately, it’s really easy to end up with a lot of sugar in your diet in today’s world, with sugar-loaded processed foods conveniently and cheaply available everywhere. And the unfortunate reality is that sugar is insidiously bad for you, and today, you’re going to learn exactly how and why.

Our guests are Michael Goran, PhD, and Emily Ventura, PhD, MPH, co-authors of “Sugarproof: The Hidden Dangers of Sugar that are Putting Your Child's Health at Risk and What You Can Do.” Both Michael and Emily are also parents, so they understand what each of us are going through and how much effort it takes to take care of our children and protect them from the hidden sugars that creep into our lives at every opportunity.

You will learn about...

  • The different types of sugar
  • Why some types of sugar are more damaging to kids than others
  • Why our evolutionary biology makes kids more vulnerable to the damaging effects of sugar
  • What sugar does to our bodies and brain
  • The importance of what you eat when you break your fast (i.e. the first meal of the day)
  • The metabolic impact of sugar intake
  • The impact of sugar on academic performance
  • Why you might want to try one week off sugar in your family
  • It’s not necessarily about cutting sugar out of your  life altogether, but being intentional about when you’re eating sugar and being aware what it does to your body
  • Why you can’t rely on sugar substitutes
  • Natural sweeteners that can be used instead of processed white sugar
  • Making food fun
  • Some of Michael and Emily’s favorite recipes
  • Why you should aim to not buy anything with more than 3 grams of added sugar
  • Michael and Emily’s sugar-free self-care
  • The effects of eating added sugars while pregnant

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! Part patient guide and part cookbook (complete with over 90 low FODMAP recipes), this is your trusty road map to become your own intestinal detective, gut problem solver, and critter-free kitchen crusader. Those who pre-order their copy will be able to do my Gut Heal Bootcamp for FREE. You will also get access to one free online cooking class. To find out more details about the pre-order bonuses and to submit your receipt, click here. We are also brought to you by Epicured, a low FODMAP meal delivery service that understands that food is medicine. Each menu is created by Michelin star chefs and honed by doctors and dieticians at mount sinaii to restore digestive health for those with IBS, SIBO, Celiac and IBD. Everything they serve is 100 percent low FODMAP and gluten-free, with no cooking required! My favorite part about their dishes is the healthy spin on takeout gems like shrimp laksa and PAD THAI! Their version had a great balance of fresh veggies mixed in with the noodles that left me feeling both satisfied and completely free of my usual carb coma.

Mark is the founder and CEO of Organic Pastures Dairy Company, a leading California and national brand of truly raw dairy products including milk, butter, cream, kefir, truly raw cheddar cheeses. Founder and chairman of Raw Milk Institute and is an internationally recognized speaker and expert with an emphasis on Raw Milk production standards, gut biome, milk genomics, nutritional benefits, food safety and the medical benefits of raw unprocessed milk and products. Mark is deeply involved with raw milk food safety research and is associated with the International Milk Genomics Consortium at UC Davis. Since 2018, two peer reviewed research papers now identify the Raw Milk Institute standards, training and testing protocols as causing “The RAWMI EFFECT”. Since 2014, in the USA there has been a 357% increase in raw milk consumption with a decrease of 74% for reported illness associated with raw milk. This positive effect has been associated with the advances in testing technology and the standards and training developed by RAWMI and its PhD board of directors. Thousands of farmers have received RAWMI training on how to produce raw milk for human consumption verses standards for pasteurization. In today’s episode, we talk all about raw milk, and why it may be worth considering if you’ve had issues with regular, conventional, processed milk products. Topics discussed in today's episode: * How and why raw milk became the center of Mark’s career * Why someone would consume milk that is not pasteurized * Why pasteurized milk is so allergenic * The reason raw milk is illegal or not regulated in certain countries * The two different standards for raw milk * When most bacteria in milk happens and what the levels typically are from a healthy cow * Why pasteurized milk is not good for your gut * How a whole food diet supports fertility * Why raw milk is so beneficial to your health * Three things that will quickly drop inflammation * Reasons raw milk is so beneficial for breastfeeding mothers Connect with Mark MacAfee : You can connect with Mark on his Facebook, Instagram, Email and website.

Diet Culture and the Patriarchy
Have you ever stopped to consider that dieting and the diet industry work to keep us busy and distracted as a result of the patriarchy? The constant pursuit of body perfection tries to keep us spinning on a hamster wheel so that we do not have the time or energy for anything else, and that needs to stop now. Key Takeaways If You Want To Start Uncovering How Dieting and the Patriarchy You Can: * Stop equating healthiness to weight * Accept that you have a skewed perception of your body * Challenge yourself to think about how you perpetuate diet culture in the patriarchy * Take steps to actively put your time and energy into something different than body perfection The System Was Built To Make Us Fail When we are preoccupied with the scale and food restrictions, we shrink ourselves literally and metaphorically. The ideal body comes from decades of the patriarchy that is reinforced by everything around you. The system is designed to oppress women-identifying folks, while the ideal body keeps changing. The time, resources, and attention that pursuit of body perfection takes is just simply not worth it. It is about damn time that we get off this hamster wheel and focus on something other than our bodies. Reinvesting Your Energy How often do you compliment someone on their looks as the first thing you say about them? Can you imagine how much time and energy you could get back if you started questioning the influence of the patriarchy on our endless pursuit for body perfection? Instead of focusing on what could go wrong or what you could miss out on if you start feeding into this internalized intersection of diet and the patriarchy, think about all the things you could gain if you stopped focusing on controlling the way you look. I truly believe that we were not put on this planet to work ourselves to achieve the perfect body. Your energy, your spirit, and your magic could all be being wasted on the patriarchal view of body perfection, and you are worth so much more than that. How are you working to stop internalizing and perpetuating the intersection of diet culture and the patriarchy? Let me know how your challenge went this week in the comments section of the episode page. In This Episode * Examples of ways that diet culture keeps us distracted from the world around us (6:10) * The role of the patriarchy and how it is woven into oppressive systems (11:50) * Why we need to tease apart health and weight and accept body diversity (17:42) * The problem with BMI and how it plays into body dysmorphia (20:00) * A special challenge for you to take away from this episode (23:23) Quotes “Dieting for the sake of body perfection keeps us distracted from everything else going on in the world because it is all-consuming.” (6:15) “We have this constantly being reinforced to us from a very young age that if we look the part if we look a certain way like these body ideals and beauty ideals, that we will be more worthy, that we will be better people. And it is absolutely a tool of the patriarchy.” (11:58) “Because of body diversity, some people in larger bodies are in great health, just like some people in smaller bodies are in terrible health.” (19:06) “We live in a patriarchal society, we live in a fatphobic society, we live in a white supremacist society, where all of these things are consistently reinforced. So it is not our fault.” (22:42) “How can you take your idea of worth, your own worth or what you appreciate about someone else, and expand that? What energy would that buy you back?” (27:14) Featured on the Show If you're ready to get free with food and fitness, check out the Tune In Membership Mindful Eating Tool More Than A Body by Lindsay Kite & Lexi Kite Body Image With Bri Instagram Join the Listen To Your Body Newsletter Steph Gaudreau Website Check out the full show notes here!

We have a really incredible episode for you today. I can’t even put into words all of the things I am feeling about what we are about to do because it’s big. It’s big, and it’s emotional. Some of us are reading over these for the first time. I think there’s going to be lots of tears and crying. I don’t know. We’re going to try to not get angry and frustrated. We asked you back in December, or the end of November, maybe it was, to write an anonymous letter to a healthcare worker, your provider, somebody on your hospital staff, or somebody that negatively affected your birth. These are all anonymous letters. We have lots and lots of submissions, and we are excited to read them to you today. Now, I want you to be advised that some of these letters have some difficult experiences explained in them. But, I think it’s really, really important that we listen to these, we hear them, and we meet these anonymous letter writers where they are because this is the state of maternity care in our country. These things that we are about to read are not uncommon experiences. And this is why we as The VBAC Link, and we as birth doulas and all of us advocate so much for change and education, and all sorts of things. But before I start rambling on more, I don’t want to take too long. We are not going to read a review of the week. We are just going to get right into the letters after the intro. Episode sponsor Julie: Birth workers, listen up. Do you want to increase your knowledge of birth after a Cesarean? We created our Advanced VBAC Doula Certification Program just for you. It is the most comprehensive VBAC doula training in the world, perfectly packaged in an online, self-paced video course. This course is designed for birth workers who want to take their VBAC education to the next level so you can support parents who have had a Cesarean in the most effective ways. We have created a complete system, a step-by-step road map that shows exactly what you need to know to support parents birthing after a Cesarean. Head over to thevbaclink.com to find out more information and sign up today. That’s thevbaclink.com. See you there. Everything Left Unsaid Julie: Alright, as you know, we have invited Allie Mennie and Marilys back with us to this episode as a follow-up to Marilys’ episode. We are going to take turns reading the letters. You guys, these are really raw and vulnerable. We are going to rotate through and try not to scream, and yell, and hit our computer screens. But also, yeah. That’s it, nothing else. Mari, do you have the first one? Mari: Our first letter starts with: “Hello, beautiful doula angels! I just listened to Marilys’ episode and wanted to send you my letter. My letter may actually be the opposite of what you are looking for. It would be a positive one because although I ended up with a Cesarean, my provider made my birth experience amazing. It was the nurses I didn’t care for. ‘To my provider, thank you. Thank you for letting me make my own decisions. Thank you for asking for consent before doing any procedures or taking the next steps. For informing me of all the risks and benefits of any procedure, I had the OPTION for during my pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Thank you for not making me feel guilty or bad about my 60lb pregnancy weight gain. For giving me the option of which hospital I wanted to deliver at. For dealing with my many text messages asking you questions throughout my pregnancy. Thank you for coming to my birth even though you were not on call. For having me push for four hours before even mentioning a Cesarean. For being quiet and calm while having me and my son in our most vulnerable states-- my body open and my mind full of fear. Thank you for taking time going over the risks and benefits of a Cesarean as well as a VBAC and reminding me that the best-case scenario for me would be to VBAC. For assuring me that the risk of uterine rupture is extremely low and should not deter me from having a VBAC. Thank you for recommending a pelvic floor therapist when I came to you six months postpartum, still leaking urine and in agonizing pain during intercourse. Thank you for being the provider that performed my cesarean and the provider I have 110% confidence in to support my VBAC.’ I hope this letter can be a reminder that a negative birth experience is not always the result of the provider or their actions. My provider was one of the most positive aspects of my birth and the only time I was fully able to relax was with her in the room. The negative aspects of my birth experience came from the labor and postpartum nurses, as well as my lack of knowledge and education about the whole process. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. But because of The VBAC Link, I now know what I didn’t know, and more.” Meagan: Wow. Mari: Whew! Go, VBAC Link. Julie: I love that. Mari: What a nice start. Julie: What a great letter to start this episode off with. Perfect. Mari: It’s important. It’s important for people to know that it’s also the journey that matters and not the outcome. Julie: Absolutely. Absolutely. I love it. Alright. Allie, you are up with the next letter. Allie: Alrighty. They start by saying: “Thank you for posting the most recent podcast.” This is actually a member of Mari’s ICAN chapter. She says: “I'm so glad to have seen and heard her on your platform. This is such a good exercise. I'm glad to have had the chance to write out my feelings to MYSELF on my ‘failed’ VBAC.” So this is a letter that this mother wrote to herself. It says: “You are a warrior mama to your two beautiful babies. I wish you didn't cast so much self-doubt and ill feelings of your capacity to be a mom simply because you didn't push them out of your vagina. After your first C-section, which we both agree you naively weren't prepared for but still doesn't justify how traumatic it was (even these 30 months later), you did ALL the things in preparation of your next pregnancy-- switched providers, read all the books, listened to podcasts, went to ICAN meetings, hired a doula, found your voice to fight for the birth you knew you wanted and the chance to make that happen. That morning, four days before your due date when you went into labor, remember those feelings. You were ecstatic to go into labor on your own, something previously robbed of you, it escalated so fast. You got to the hospital two hours later to have your water break as you wobbled in, to find you were already at a ten and fully effaced and ready to push that baby out. As you started pushing, you had a deep gut feeling that this wasn't going to be a different…

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.
