I recently joined Megan Van Buren on her “Painless Pain Management” podcast to discuss a different approach to pain management by focusing on reducing inflammation.
Since most–if not all–symptoms are due to inflammation, addressing the underlying inflammation by identifying and eliminating the personal inflammatory triggers is not only a scientifically valid approach, it’s also super effective.
Megan and I had a wide-ranging conversation where I shared my theory of autoimmunity (it’s not what we’ve been told!) and how parasites can trigger chronic inflammation.
We talk about how I use the Mediator Release Test to design a customized oligoantigenic dietary therapy for the clients in my virtual clinic, and how and why that’s more effective in reducing inflammation than traditional elimination diets, guesswork, or diet fads.
It’s funny to realize that I now fit into this category, but I recently appeared on Denise Vivaldo’s “Women Beyond a Certain Age” podcast and I have to admit that it was great fun! We had a lively conversation about taking charge of our health as we age and steps that each of us can take to feel as good as we can for as long as we can. Listen in here!
P.S. I just celebrated my 52nd birthday this month!
