"After I finished my second liver cleanse, my eczema and acne were completely gone. My hair started growing, and my energy was back. I could get out of bed in the morning and wasn't falling asleep at one o'clock anymore. At last, I could see many significant shifts happening.”
Motherhood can be a lonely and difficult journey, especially if societal expectations bombard women about how they should look and feel. After each childbirth, one may experience extreme fatigue, postpartum depression, chronic yeast infections, thyroid dysfunction, weight gain as well as other ailments.
The harsh reality is that when most mothers seek answers for various symptoms, doctors often dismiss their health issues as normal, and worse, they are not trying hard enough to lose weight. This experience can leave desperate mamas feeling isolated and frustrated, not knowing where to seek help.
Today, our guest is Sarah Williams, one of the...
"So my sister was diagnosed with LCIS, and there were areas of concern on her breast. The doctor recommended 'watch and wait' or mastectomy, and she was in turmoil. I asked her to take progesterone hormones, and after a month, she went back for her MRI, and the abnormal cells were undetectable."
Conventional medicine entails treating patients already in the end stages of their diseases. However, even if this is the norm, it pays to ask if there is anything we can do to correct or arrest an illness before it becomes chronic or fatal.
What if we can prevent sickness? Are there destructive lifestyle habits or seismic life shifts that are worth noting? What other factors contributed to today's results? When it comes to health, these are the underlying questions that beg for answers.

"Women have been lied to over and over again. It's common to assume that period symptoms are normal because everybody has them. But imagine a life where you're no longer planning around your monthly cycle. You're not falling apart, your energy is consistent, and your mood is good and stable."
Most women expect a dreadful Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) every month. Nausea, cramping, and migraines are just a few symptoms that female adolescents expect, and there's no other way to deal but through pain relievers and birth control pills.
Suffering from dramatic periods as an adolescent, she is unwilling to accept conventional medicine as the final solution. Yet, without a logical explanation from her doctor, she refused to believe this was her fate.
Our guest, Dr. Annie Savage, is a naturopathic physician trained in female hormones, functional endocrinology, and bio-identical hormone therapy. For her, symptom-free periods are...
"Cold therapy is one of the best things you can do for vagal tone. When people are chronically in fight or flight, it gets you out of that and helps you get you into parasympathetic states again.”

"Whether you get the vaccine or natural infection from COVID, the spike protein destroys the blood vessels which causes clots that restrict oxygen flow. Numbness and systemic inflammation occur to critically-high functioning organs like your heart and brain. The immune system also produces abnormal lymphocytes, so you get deranged responses that last for months."
COVID-19 has shaken the world since 2020. Encountering medical cases that were previously unheard of, the future may seem bleak and frightening. And with the threat looming to wreck our bodies in unpredictable ways, prioritizing our overall health is of utmost importance.
Since COVID is a new virus, we are still in the early stages of understanding and having information about it. Therefore, doctors also collaborate and share data from their on-the-ground experiences so they can have an answer for every patient that struggles with weird, post-recovery symptoms.
Show Summary: “Olive oils must be single-origin. The land where the olive trees grow should be non-invasive, and the fruits must be hand-picked so as not to damage the quality in the process.”
You've all heard olive oil is probably the holy grail among oils. Not only does it taste good but it's also been proven many times that it has a lot of health benefits. Now, the question is how certain are you that you're getting the good quality ones - considering many large olive oil brands are out there just for profit?
How can you distinguish between virgin and extra virgin olive oil? What are the tell-tale signs that the bottles displayed in grocery stores came from multi-sourced locations? How does a clear olive oil bottle affect its overall quality?
It seems like a lot of stuff to consider just to consume oil, doesn't it?
But when it comes to our health, we should always be mindful of the quality of products that we consume. A little...
