Episode 201: Autism and ADHD: A Functional Approach

August 10, 2020

Is your child dealing with a diagnosis of ADHD or Autism? Looking for alternative approaches to medication for behavioral issues? Want to know how to best support neurological health, concentration and focus? Tune in to hear Ali and Becki discuss the rise of ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder, from conventional approaches to supporting optimal neurological and behavioral health in our children. In today’s episode we will cover primary irritants to avoid as well as foods to focus on and some root causes of imbalance including gut health, detoxification pathways, and nutritional deficiency trends. 

 

In this episode, Ali and Becki discuss functional approaches to neurological and behavioral health from assessing common nutritional deficiencies, identifying food allergies or heavy metal toxicity, balancing blood sugar levels and providing nutrients for optimal cognitive function. 

We take a whole body approach addressing mind with restructuring thought patterns and self-esteem building techniques, behavior with development of routine and consistency, and diet to ensure we can provide you with balanced support for optimal results. Some of the most over prescribed medications include methamphetamines to treat attention deficits, especially in kids. 

But what is exciting is that we know that  ADHD and other psychological disorders may be caused by dietary/digestive reasons and may be treated with food as medicine.

Episode 195: Flatten the Fear and Cracking the Carnivore Code with Guest Dr. Paul Saladino

June 30, 2020

In light of the current pandemic, so much of the current narrative is focused on fear, increasing case counts and the ambiguous calls to flatten the curve by means of lockdown, social distancing and universal mask wearing. In this episode, we break down the importance of metabolic health in the context of the pandemic and do a deep dive on fact vs. fear with guest Dr. Paul Saladino. We also discuss considerations of an all meat diet and his newly revised book, The Carnivore Code. 

 

In this episode, we interview Dr. Saladino on his perspective on why we need to flatten the fear and use this pandemic as an opportunity to correct the underlying metabolic issues that make us vulnerable to the virus. This isn’t the first, nor will it be the last, viral threat to humans and looking to deepen our understanding of how the immune system functions, how nutrients like Vitamin D and glutathione can support whole body health, and how insulin resistance is the real pandemic is being dangerously overlooked. Tune in to hear us discuss herd immunity, shortcomings of a vaccine and how we can tap into nature to create resilience. Plus hear all about Dr. Paul’s book, The Carnivore Code, where he debunks common misconceptions of a meat-based diet and shares his perspective on why plants might not be supportive of whole body health.
