Podcast 272:
How to Fix Your “Bathroom Woes”.

digestive-problems

Last week, I spent a day reading Natural Solutions for Digestive Health by Dr. Jillian Teta and was totally BLOWN AWAY by these 3 statistics:
 
#1. Americans spend roughly $725 million annually on laxatives. (O.M.G!)


#2. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects up to 15 percent of the U.S. population, a number that is likely way below current prevalence, as only about one quarter of people with IBS symptoms seek treatment.
 
#3. 48 percent of Americans are on at least one Rx drug, many of which have one or more digestive side effect.

Yikes!
 
One of the biggest issues we have with digestion is that no one likes to talk about it. 
 
But not me, I can talk about poop all day. :)
 
And that’s why Dr. Teta and I got together for mind-blowing episode on WHY digestive problems are on the rise and HOW to fix them.

Here are my notes!

Podcast 228: How to Upgrade Your Memory…Kwikly!

Screen Shot 2013-10-08 at 12.37.09 AMby Sean Croxton

What if you could remember and recite a list of twenty random words immediately after hearing them?

Not just the words themselves, but you can recall them in exact order — 1 through 20.

And that’s not all….

The words are given to you out of order!

For example, 10 is thyroid, 2 is turmeric, 15 is liver, 17 is autoimmunity, and so on.

Would be pretty cool, huh?

If I had to guess, I’d say that you highly doubt you could pull something like this off.

But what if I were to tell you that you can learn how to do it in just 10-15 minutes? You’ll even do it backwards. No kidding!

Imagine how much more information you’d be able to retain if you actually…well, learned how to learn.

Last night on Underground Wellness Radio, our friend Jim Kwik stopped by to share a handful of effective and useful strategies for upgrading your memory — the sun list, the vowel technique, and the hook method.

Gosh, I wish I would have learned this stuff back in grade school…

It would have made life so much easier.

But hey, it’s never to late to learn how to learn.

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.

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.

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.
