Listener Questions:

Q1 - 17:57

Q: I loved your podcast with Dr. Eric Z, and I ordered all of his favorite essential oils- Clove, Peppermint, Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, and Lavender. Since I got them, they’ve been sitting on my desk! I had really good intentions but just don’t know how to get started using them consistently! How should I be using these? The main issues I struggle with are the side effects that come along with my thyroid issues- exhaustion, constipation, cold all the time,  brittle nails/hair, etc. How should I use these oils?

Q2 - 24:27

Q: I know that standard deodorant with antiperspirant can be really harmful, especially for women when it comes to breast health. I have tried to switch to a natural blend I found at Whole foods and I just haven’t been able to do it! Now that the weather has cooled down for the winter, I want to try again. You’ve talked before about one that you use from TJ Max, but I can’t remember what it was called? Could you talk about some of your favorite all natural brands for deodorant and skin care?

Q3 - 28:32

Q: I ordered a Mitochondria Detox after a recent podcast, and I was really excited to start it! Around day 3-4 I became violently ill, I threw up 15 times over the period of two days. I don’t usually get sick to my stomach like this, and no one else around me had a stomach bug. It didn’t even occur to me until a few days ago that maybe it was the Detox that was making me sick. Do you think my body was rejecting the detox products themselves, or that this was my body getting rid of the junk? Or do you think this was just a coincidence?

Q4 - 31:15 

Q: My husband and I wrote an offer on a home and held a termite/mold inspection. The inspection came back that there are some mold spores, but they aren’t black. My agent told me that not all mold is dangerous, that I don’t have anything to worry about with this particular type. What I am reading online seems to say that toxic molds are usually black. I got spooked and we walked away from the house, but now I am curious about this as we continue our home search. What should I be concerned with, and what should I treat and overlook?

  • Elizabeth in Greenville

 Q5 - 33:26

Q: An article that I read recently talked about taking natural binders to assist with detox. I was surprised to learn some semi-common things like cilantro can act as a binder! I also have read a lot about activated charcoal, which I have bought at Whole Foods before to help with hangovers. What are some of the best, non-prescription binders that you recommend, and do you recommend any of the prescription ones?

 Q6 - 37:21

Q: I just got diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, I tried with my diet for 2 years. I eat lots of healthy fats, eggs, avocado, and a keto diet. After 2 years of just trying with my diet, I finally decided to get on prescription meds for my rheumatoid arthritis. I'm now regretting the decision. Why do you think I couldn't keep this under control with my diet and do you maybe think my diet wasn't clean enough??
