Rank #5: 85 Adrenal Fatigue - What's the Real Deal?

Podcast cover
Read more

Have you ever been to the doctor to ask about symptoms of adrenal fatigue – like fatigue, anxiety, weight gain, cravings, hair loss, hormonal imbalances, thyroid symptoms – only to be told: “You’re fine, there’s nothing wrong with you?" The dominate medical model has a tendency to overlook women's symptoms and tell us that it's all in our heads, but I have news for you: Your symptoms are not just in your head. You’re not crazy. Something new that doctors don’t recognize yet is going on.

In today’s episode of Natural MD Radio I discuss the controversial topic of adrenal fatigue and whether or not it is a real thing, and I bet you'll be surprised by what I have to say! Tune in to learn the science of what's really going on in your body, why the medical system isn’t keeping up, and what you can do to get the care you need to take back your health.

“Doctors are taught, ’if we can’t measure it, then it’s not happening.’”-- Dr. Aviva Romm

Rank #6: 20 Kelly Brogan - Women & Depression: A Mind of Your Own

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode of Natural MD Radio is even more controversial than usual. In this conversation Dr. Brogan and I explore many of the risks and questionable studies that surround the use of antidepressant medications. Dr. Brogan is against prescribing them; I prefer alternatives but do know that many women find them to be beneficial and some even describe them as having saved or transformed their lives. I want everyone who listens to feel honored and supported. There isn’t one right answer, and it’s important to be comfortable with what’s best for you.

That said, this doesn’t diminish the fact that these medications are grossly overprescribed and their risks underemphasized. Also, your doctor may have told you that once on these meds, you’ll always need them. This isn’t true. So if you are choosing to use them, it’s important to have the facts and make that choice wisely.

Rank #10: 96 Herbs for Detoxification - What Really Works

Podcast cover
Read more

Detoxification is something our bodies do naturally. Unfortunately, things are much different for us now than they were for our ancestors. While they were exposed to very few environmental toxins as little as 75 years ago, the same cannot be said for us today. We are simultaneously being overloaded by external toxins and undersupported by our diets because our diets are not balanced enough to keep our natural detox processes robust.

Over the past few weeks of our series on detoxification, we have talked about the impact that too much detoxification can have on your health, as well as the differences between metabolic and psychologic detoxification and the dangers of fad detoxes. I want to wrap up this series discussing the very powerful role that some foods and supplements can play in our body's natural detoxification processes. I also want to share some of my favorite botanicals and herbs that I use with my patients to support their natural detoxification processes.

Today I'm excited to dive into the steps of a 12-week detox program. Along the way, I'll share with you some of my absolute favorite botanicals and herbs to use to support the detoxification process while also showing you how to be intentional about limiting exposures to harmful toxins in your home, food, and household products.

Listen in as I talk about the historical and scientific support behind these detoxifying herbs and the steps you can take to rid your home and your body of the harmful toxins that are getting in the way of your health.
