Listener Questions:

1 - 5:40

Q: I just got back from France, and before I went one of my friends said to me "If you go to France you can eat all the foods that you cant here". When I'm here in American, I can't eat beer, ice cream, or bread and if I do I break out in psoriasis all over my body, but she was right. When I was in France I ate all the dairy, the beer, and the bread I wanted and I had no psoriasis. As soon as I came back and tried to eat a little bit here and broke out. What is the deal??

Q: I feel like there is something wrong with my liver because I have been having heart palpitations. When I was looking up my symptoms on Dr. Google, it said I might be having a problem with the secretion of bile, which would cause the liver issues. Can you explain more about bile and how it works? With the symptoms I am having, it seems like something is wrong with my liver, gallbladder, or bile secretion. How can I be sure? Is there a way to tell if my bile is normal?

Q: For years I've used this to help me go poop like senna and different teas. Now I can't go poop if I don't have it so it's a bad spiral. I feel like its bad for my body to keep depending on these different teas that make me go poop, and different aloes and pills, but If i dont do it, I cant poop and I feel terrible. What should I do?

Q: I've been having sharp pains in my heart and when I googled the rest of my symbols and I read something that this could e a gallbladder issue. How could my heart be affected by my gallbladder? this doesn't even make sense. Is this possible?

Q: Because of the research I’ve done, I have completely removed Gluten from my diet because of my autoimmune issues, but I am really struggling to give up dairy. Everyone I talk to says that it will really help me, but I just LOVE my cheese. Is there a way to tell if I am specifically allergic to dairy? If I was, what would my symptoms be?

 Q: Greetings! My name is Lee-Anne from South Africa and I love your podcast - it's a wealth of information and I enthusiastically look forward to each one...My question involves Sole, pronounced Soh-ley. I'm pretty sure you might have heard of it before, but if not, it's a mixture of distilled water that's been fully saturated with Pink Himalayan Salt. I fast with Sole and add it to my water all day long. Personally, I drink loads of water during the day, as it helps me get through my fast and avoid headaches. Whenever I struggle with the fast, drinking Sole magically makes it easier to fast for a couple of hours more. Its extremely comforting to me, like hot chocolate on a rainy day...and my brain seems to strangely associate this with warm soup?? In total, I add about 3 tablespoons of Sole to my water per day. I doubt it breaks the fast as it takes my hunger away - but I'm wondering what the effects of it may be on other benefits of fasting such as Autophagy?

Q: I’ve been taking a parasite to cleanse, and every time I go to the bathroom, I check my stool to see if I see anything worm-like, and I don’…everything looks normal. Does this mean I don’t have parasites and I could quit? When I do these cleanses, they just don’t make me feel good. Should I see a Doctor for a stool sample? I don’t want to put my body through these side effects of the cleanses if it’s not necessary.

Q: To make a long story short, I was recently diagnosed with MS, about 3 months ago. I am only 29 and this was really upsetting for me, because I felt my whole life was over. My Doctor has been experimenting with different medicines, and the side effects have been horrible, I feel like I am on a roller coaster. It is daunting to me to think that I may have to be on medication for the rest of my life, but I want to do anything I can to keep the symptoms at bay and keep this from progressing. Do you know of any more natural alternatives that I could consider? I am open to any supplements, homeopathic medication, and diet and lifestyle changes so that I can live my life as much as possible.

Q: I loved your podcast with Dr Evan Brand! I learned so much from him. One of the things he touched on, but didn’t go too deep was the harmfulness of hair dye. This struck me because I realized that hair dye is basically the only product in my life that I have not gone natural with. I have a ton of gray hair, and letting them show is not an option HAHA! If I have gone all natural and organic with literally EVERYTHING else, how important is it that I give up my hair dye? Are there any ingredients or products that I should specifically avoid, and what ingredients could I look for in a healthier alternative?

Q: I read an article about the CBD oil not being regulated, and how when you take it, you don’t know how much you are actually getting, the milligrams can vary, and even if it says 750 mg, there’s no way to know for sure. It kinda freaked me out so I quit taking it for about a week (after taking it for about four months) and I feel terrible. Do you think it’s a coincidence, or there really is something to this CBD. Is this just another fad? I am always very hesitant of Multi Level Marketing products. What’s your opinion?

 Q: Hi I Love love your show! I find it very helpful and I listen to it every week. I am a 48-year-old woman, married with 2 kids, I still have regular periods except for the last 4 months.  Stressful things can bring it on early or skip it.  I experience severe insomnia, usually around the hours of 1 to 3:30 in the morning. It wipes me out not getting good sleep.  I’m assuming it’s my hormones, I read a lot about Maca and black Cohosh, to help with sleep but I also heard that you can gain weight on it, that is something I do not want. It’s hard enough to lose weight after 40.  Yet I need sleep especially with a lot of family stress (aging parents).  I do suffer from low iron count and chronic fatigue, if that helps.
Thank you for taking the time reading this.

 Q: My local tanning salon has a red light therapy chamber which I’ve tried a couple times and it feels really nice! I know that on your podcast you’ve talked about it helping with psoriasis, which is not something that I struggle with. What are some of the other benefits of red light therapy, and do you think there is really something to it? Or is it just what my mom would call another snake oil! LOL.

 Q: I heard a podcast that said I should not juice because it removes the fiber, and I should be drinking smoothies. But the next thing you hear says juice juice juice, it’s the best thing for you! I know that you talk about drinking green juices and feeling really good. What is your opinion on juices vs smoothies?
