Listen to "Dr. Elia Gourgouris | How to Navigate A Crisis With The Happiness Doctor" on Spreaker.


The Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting people at an increasing rate. Drug and alcohol use, as well as suicide rates, have been at an all time high. This crisis has brought on a lot of fear in people’s lives. Due to social distancing, people are more distanced now than they have ever been in our time. The most vulnerable of our population are suffering the most. There are four personality types. The first is the victim who says “Why me?” The second is the critic. The one who criticizes whatever instructions they are given such as wear or don’t wear a mask. The third is the bystander. They are the ones who just watch, are frozen in fear, and do nothing. These first 3 personality types all have something in common, which is they offer no solutions. The fourth type is the navigator. They face issues with positivity. They...

Juanique and Tristin discuss the importance of detoxification, why it can stop working very efficiently, what happens to you when it stops working efficiently, and how you can supercharge it to get yourself back on a healing pathway. The liver is an essential piece of hormone management. The liver has over 500 functions in the body. Our modern environment seems to be terrible at making us healthy. Many foods that we eat have plenty of added chemicals and pesticides that our bodies are not meant to digest. Living a heavily stressful lifestyle can affect your liver negatively. Not only are foods unhealthy for us in modern society, but are also highly addictive. Three phases of detoxification. Phase 1) Bioactivation. Liver sends out enzymes to tag the toxins in your system letting your body know they are present. Phase 2) Conjugation phase. Your liver adds...

Why Doctors Dont Listen | Interview With Dr. John Sanders

Jul 21, 2020

Episode 57: Gutsy Health Podcast 

Listen to "Why Doctors Dont Listen | Interview With Dr. John Sanders" on Spreaker.


We have a culture of doctors who just don’t listen. It’s partially their fault and partially not. He’s a family physician. Has done dermatology, pediatrics, chiropractic work. About 70% of his energy is put to a computer rather than to a patient and understanding them. We don’t have doctors running the hospitals. Instead they’re run by business men, which can be a conflict between doctors, who focus more on patients, and administrators, who focus more on the system. In some states it’s illegal for non physicians to own clinics. The corporations running the health systems tend to be more concerned about the investor than the patients. The typical doctor feels restraints of the system. The problem is there is no time to create trust. There are usually multiple patients waiting in the next room, so the doctor has no time to...

Episode 53: Gutsy Health Podcast 

Listen to "Educating Yourself to Help Your Children | Patient Participation in Health Care" on Spreaker.


Today, we talk with Rachel, one of our clients, who has been fighting to learn about her son, Boston’s unique medical condition, and advocating hard for proper medical diagnosis and treatment for him. It began with two lumps on his neck and face, which started to swell and pus. She shares the development of Boston’s condition, including how her pediatrician’s recommendation of antibiotics made no change, and how, seeing her son’s condition worsen, she tried to boost his immune system, change his diet, and search for more answers. She went to a naturopath, who figured it was a lymphatic issue, and first recommended a homeopathic approach to drain and rebound the lymph system. When that didn’t work, the naturopath recommended antibiotics, which were also ineffective. Rachel also cut dairy and gluten out of...

Listen to "Staying Safe in the Sun | Health Benefits of Sun Exposure and How To Avoid Sun Damage" on Spreaker.


Today’s episode is all about sun safety, debunking myths and promoting the healthiest practices for keeping safe during hot summer days. We begin our conversation by discussing the history behind why the sun is commonly viewed as dangerous and detrimental to our health, focusing on how modern medicine has blamed the sun for causing cancer and melanoma.

We take you through the things that actually cause melanoma and skin cancer, such as irregular sun exposure and improper filtering of artificial light, as well as the blocking of the endocannabinoid system and endorphin pathways, which are both stimulated by...

In today’s episode, we talk about glyphosate, which is a systemic herbicide and crop desiccant. We begin our discussion by sharing a negative review of our show and discuss the questions it brings up about medical authority. We reaffirm that our platform is to firmly advocate medical freedom and personal choice when it comes to their own health. We then encourage anyone who believes in freedom or has been the victim of oppression (at the hands of medical professionals or otherwise) has the obligation to listen to the voices crying for freedom as part of the Black Lives Matter Movement. We talk about the effects of the Mansfield Amendment in 1969, which took away all of the neutral funding set aside by the government and military for 3rd party scientists to research health topics.

The Antinutrients Strike Back | Choosing and Preparing Foods to Improve Digestion

Jun 01, 2020

Episode 52: Gutsy Health Podcast 

Listen to "The Antinutrients Strike Back | Choosing and Preparing Foods to Improve Digestion" on Spreaker.

Today’s episode is all about antinutrients. We define them as substances found in foods that cause problems in the body sometimes -- meaning, they are not always harmful to everyone. We talk more in-depth about the food sources and potential harmful effects of specific antinutrients such as Phytic Acid, Lectins, Goitrogens, and Oxalates. We discuss how to prepare foods high in antinutrients to reduce digestive issues. We give you tips on how to adjust your diet if you are particularly sensitive to one of these antinutrients, as well as how to determine whether you do have a sensitivity. We give options for those who have high sensitivities to many antinutrients, such as using certain diets -- like autoimmune paleo and elemental -- as stepping stones to rebalance.
