How To Reduce Your Toxic Burden And Prevent Exposure

Ep. 635

This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Paleovalley, and Beekeeper’s Naturals.

 

Environmental toxins can wreak havoc on your body. And our bodies can only handle so much. There is a threshold, and when it’s passed, toxins can’t effectively be processed out of the body and are left lingering. When our toxic load is maxed out we start to see symptoms and dysfunctions. 

 

In today’s episode, I speak with Dr. Casey Means, Harriet Washington, and Maggie Ward about reducing your toxic exposure, the compounded effect of toxic exposures, and more.

 

Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford-trained physician, Chief Medical Officer and cofounder of metabolic health company Levels, an associate editor of the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, and a lecturer at Stanford University. Her mission is to maximize human potential and reverse the epidemic of preventable chronic disease by empowering individuals with tools that can facilitate a deep understanding of our bodies and inform personalized and sustainable dietary and lifestyle choices. 

 

Harriet Washington has been the Shearing Fellow at the University of Nevada's Black Mountain Institute, a Research Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School, a senior research scholar at the National Center for Bioethics at Tuskegee University, and a visiting scholar at DePaul University College of Law. She is the author of Deadly Monopolies, Infectious Madness, Medical Apartheid, and A Terrible Thing to Waste, a book that looks at the devastating consequences of environmental racism—and what we can do to remedy its toxic effects on marginalized communities.

 

Maggie Ward, MS, RD, LDN, is the Nutrition Director at The UltraWellness Center. She holds a master’s degree in nutrition from Bastyr University and focuses on using whole foods for holistic nutrition therapy. In addition, she completed her requirements to become a registered dietitian at Westchester Medical Center in New York.

The 3 Biggest Myths About Emotional Eating with Marc David

Ep. 669
This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, Paleovalley, and Mitopure.Many of us turn to food to cope with feelings, then we beat ourselves up. Personally, I’m guilty of turning to food when I’m exhausted and then feeling bad about not making great choices or eating when I wasn’t truly hungry. But what we don’t realize is that emotional eating is natural and inborn, and it’s not a matter of having too little willpower. The healing process means getting unstuck from negative patterns, reframing our inner dialogue, and acknowledging the different parts of us and what they’re each asking for. Feeling guilty and disempowered isn’t doing us any good. Today I’m excited to sit down with a leading expert in the field of emotional eating and a good friend, Marc David. Marc David, M.A., is the bestselling author of the books, Nourishing Wisdom: A Mind Body Approach to Nutrition and Well-Being and The Slow Down Diet: Eating for Pleasure, Energy, and Weight Loss, a frequent speaker and consultant, and host of the celebrated Psychology of Eating Podcast.
