The Podcast about Gluten-Free Lies, Leaky Gut, & JERFing. (#218)

sad-breadby Allyson the Assistant

As many of you know, Sean has been feeling a bit under the weather this week so I’m stepping in to share with you guys some awesome info from Dr. Peter Osborne’s show on UW Radio last week, The Gluten Free Lie.

May 18th will mark my 3-year anniversary working for Sean and let me tell you, since then, I’ve learned a TON about the evils of gluten.

But the coolest thing about working for Sean is that I’m always learning more. I know consuming gluten is linked to developing autoimmune disease, but listening to Dr. Osborne’s podcast really helped shed some light on the science behind it.

Simply put, ignoring a gluten sensitivity leads to leaky gut.

And leaky gut leads to autoimmune disease.

How can this happen?

The cells in the gut that line the intestine are tightly bound together to keep bacteria and toxins from the food we eat inside the GI tract, preventing them from getting into the bloodstream.

Gluten can cause the gut cells to open up and drift apart, allowing food proteins to slip between the cells. Since 80% of our immune systems resides in the lymphatic system behind the gut wall, the escaped food proteins start to cause an immune reaction.

Here’s the kicker – molecular mimicry.

3 Ways Exercise Can Ruin Your Sex Life.

crossfit-exhaustedby Sean Croxton

Extreme exercise is all the rage these days….

The pedal-till-you-drop spin classes.

The DVD set that left a sweat stain in your living room carpet.

The poorly-designed group workout classes that seem to serve no real purpose other than crushing you.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that these kinds of programs are all “bad”.

In fact, I’m a fan of just about anything that gets people off their butts.

Hey, if your Insanity DVDs are the only thing that get you moving, have at it. Do what works.

What concerns me is when exercise programs lead to diminishing returns, especially when they put a damper on your sex life.

I mean, if you work out to look sexy but your workouts kill your sex drive, we’ve got a problem.

So on this week’s episode of The Underground Wellness Show, Strength Coach Brett Klika and I discuss the 3 Ways Exercise Can Ruin Your Sex Life. Here they are…

1. A reduction in the hormones that make you want to have sex.

2. An increase in the hormones that make you not want to have sex.

3. An increase in body image issues, leading to diminished confidence in physical appearance.

Check out the video below to get the whole scoop.

You’ll also learn how you can schedule your workouts to allow for proper rest, better recovery, and more sex!

The Podcast about Naked Doctors, Drug Money, and War Crimes. (# 217)

9781479272440_p0_v1_s260x420by Sean Croxton

This was classic.

When I read Dr. Peter Glidden’s book The MD Emperor Has No Clothes a few months ago I knew it would make for an eye-opening show.

Dr. Glidden, a naturopathic doctor, doesn’t hold anything back. And he’s apparently not afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

While some may find his words controversial and unsettling, no one can question his passion for ensuring that everyone get the medical care they need — a type of care that addresses the root cause of symptoms and disease.

Click the player at the bottom of this post to listen to the entire episode.

Be sure to buckle up.

Here are my notes….

Top 5 Things You Didn’t Know about Gluten Sensitivity!


1012-glutenby Sean Croxton

The doctor is in the house.

And, as always, he’s packing nothing but truth bombs!

Yesterday, gluten superhero Dr. Tom O’Bryan stopped by the studio to share a handful of facts that you probably didn’t know about gluten sensitivity.

If you’re dealing with headaches, skin problems, fatigue, mood issues, or know a child with celiac disease, you’ll want to check this out.

Here’s what you’ll learn…

* The connection between recurrent headaches, dead brain tissue, and gluten consumption.

* How skin problems can be the sole manifestation of gluten sensitivity.

* How removing gluten from the diet may be the key to restoring your energy and vitality.

* Why getting off of gluten can be so difficult, and how to find a trained Certified Gluten Practitioner to help you with the transition.

* Why there is a 40-96% increased risk of suicide in children with celiac disease versus non-celiac children.

* How people with celiac disease who consume gluten once a month are six times more likely to die early in life compared to the general population. Wait until you hear how much gluten we’re talking about!

* Why kids diagnosed with celiac disease are three times more likely to die early in life with or without a gluten-free diet.

Check out the video below to hear Dr. Tom tell it. Share your thoughts and comments below!

Be sure to check Dr. O’Bryan’s site at www.thedr.com.

He’s the man.

The Podcast about How to Boost Testosterone and Be a Better Man. (# 216)

Testosterone-21by Sean Croxton

Here’s an alarming stat…

Researchers from Massachusetts found that the average man’s testosterone (not just older men) has dropped 22% in the last 20 years, and that one out of every four men has below average testosterone.

That’s no bueno, friends!

Testosterone is what makes men…well, men.

It is responsible for our sex drives, our ambition, our sense of well being, and a whole bunch of other important stuff.

When testosterone is low, it is almost impossible to be the best versions of ourselves. We become ordinary, not the alphas we were intended to be.

My friends Adam and Roman, co-authors of Man 2.0: Engineering the Alpha, stopped by the show last week to discuss all things alpha, including how to balance male hormones naturally through diet, lifestyle, mindset, and exercise.
