A look at the recipes on my blog shows that I consider meat to be an important part of a healthy diet. I realize this stance can be highly controversial given the poor diet, environment, and climate impact of commercial meat-raising practices. This is why I asked Anya Fernald — a leader in the high quality, organic, and premium food market — to tal…
 
Question: Can you give any suggestions for increasing delta-6 desaturase activity? There's a bunch of nutrients involved in that, so many that you basically just need to do a comprehensive nutritional screening for whether something is missing there. You might just have low activity by genetics. It's probably not worth solving that problem. The big…
 
Question: What are the pros and cons of boosting sulforaphane? Sulforaphane, the nice thing is it promotes detoxification. The bad thing is it raises the need for iodine. I don't know what ratio to take, but you definitely want to make sure that you're getting some kind of iodine into your diet, whether it's through like 200 micrograms of iodine fr…
 
I’m here today with Nick Ortner, the CEO of The Tapping Solution, a company with a mission to bring tapping to the mainstream. What is tapping, you ask? Think of it as modern psychology meets ancient Chinese acupressure, but self-administered in the comfort of your home. I use it during times of stress or when I’m trying to derail a negative habit.…
 
Question: Is it true that we can’t absorb more than 1.5 grams of creatine at one time? I don't think that's true. From what I looked at, it looked like the absorption of creatine was really, really good. I don't know if someone was arguing maybe that we don't retain more than that. But I think the retention of your muscles is going to be best with …
 
Question: NMN vs. NR: What’s better? And is TMG necessary? Yeah. There are no human studies looking at NMN and how it's metabolized. There are studies of NR. No one has showed any positive benefits of supplementing NR in humans yet, but they haven't really done any long-term studies or looked at many things, and they really haven't looked at anythi…
 
Are bone broth and collagen safe with Herpes or Epstein Barr viruses? If you are using collagen powder or bone broth for your daily soup or smoothie you may be making a mistake. Broth and Collagen can be excellent protein choices when you are well. But if you struggle with recurring Herpes, Shingles or EBV these protein foods feed Retroviruses with…
 
Question: What to do about cataracts. Carl Rayner says, "Cataract in one eye becoming noticeable. This eye had a posterior detachment about 11 years ago, which is basically healed. I've been on a low-carb diet for over 40 years. Eat raw cream cheese, eggs, meat and liver. In the past few years, adding fasting and more keto diet. Saw your thoughts a…
 
Question: What can be done nutritionally to specifically improve antiviral immunity? Certainly, the fat-soluble vitamins, vitamins A and D, both important. Lauric acid as a fat. Coconut oil might be a good fat choice for the fat in your diet. Monolaurin would be a very good choice for a supplement. Lauricidin is the best monolaurin to take, 3 to 10…
 
Dr. Lyla Blake-Gumbs is a board-certified family and functional medicine physician with 22 years of clinical training and experience. I met Dr. Lyla when she joined SteadyMD, which I’ve shared about before. I knew I wanted to ask Dr. Lyla to be on the podcast when I learned she is an expert in women’s hormone health especially during the (often tou…
 
Question: If free T3 looks good, why is TSH still a little high? Why hasn't the T3 brought it down enough? Your thyroid gland makes thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone increases your metabolic rate and does a lot of related things. Your hypothalamus is governing that by controlling your pituitary, the master endocrine gland, and its secretion of TSH, …

Today’s episode is all about self-sabotage and how to remove mental roadblocks that are barriers to success or happiness. I am here with Erin Pheil, the founder of the MindFix Group, a program that has a track record of helping people get mentally unstu…
 
A large 2019 study found heavy metals in baby foods. Dozens of well-known brands and products were tested. Arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury were found in 95% of the 13 types of products tested: cereals, snack foods, fruits, juices and vegetables. Smaller tests have been run but this was a large study of 168 products in 61 brands. "Healthy Babies …

Question: What food supplements and training programs are good for developing muscle mass? Overwhelmingly, what matters for muscle mass is working out, eating enough protein, and eating enough calories. You want to try and hit 10-20 sets per muscle group per week with eat set hitting within 80% of failure. So, if your doing a set of 8 reps but you …
 
Today I’m opening up and sharing about my own inner journey over the past year and how that led to dramatic physical changes without major diet and exercise changes. If you’d told me a few years ago that something like that was even possible, I would not have believed you. My journey involved realizing firsthand just how connected the mind and body…
 
Question: Should I manage my total cholesterol of 305 just for my doctor or should I be doing it for my own sake? If so, how should I do it? You should want to improve your lipid profile for a lot more than to please your doctor. Let's revisit this from a cholesterol skeptic point of view. Uffe Ravnskov, he wrote a book called The Cholesterol Myths…
 
Question: "Do you have any recommendations on how to get enough calcium on a low-carb, no-dairy diet? I've read that vegetables provide calcium, but bioavailability is poor." The bioavailability of calcium from different vegetables is highly dependent on the specific vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables have very good bioavailability. It's better tha…
 
Question: What should people with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency be doing not just about glutathione, but about folate, vitamin K, fatty acids, and neurotransmitters? G6PD, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, is an inborn error of metabolism. It's the most common one in the world. About 8% globally have some impairment in th…
 
You’ve heard me talk about the importance of optimizing our circadian rhythm with food and light, but as women there’s another rhythm we all know well… that monthly cycle that fogs our brains, gets our food cravings going, and plays havoc with our emotions! It ruins everything, right? Well, Alisa Vitti is here today to change how we think about per…
 
Question: If my tryptophan is low, and I'm on a low-carb diet, would you recommend 5-HTP supplements or tryptophan supplements or both? There are multiple reasons why tryptophan could be low. It could be that you are not eating enough protein, or it could be that you have a high utilization of the tryptophan. I would look in the test and see if the…
 
Question: What to do if signs and symptoms of zinc deficiency persist despite taking 75 mg zinc gluconate per day. You should do plasma zinc. Also you know I kind of wonder whether you're taking that right. So if you're taking 75 milligrams of zinc like at one time then it's not surprising because you're absorbing like seven of those milligrams. Th…
 
The way our skin looks and feels as we age isn’t determined just by genetics, or what cream we use, or how much we stay out of the sun! In many ways it is a reflection of everything we put into our bodies. Today, Dr. Emilia Javorsky returns to the podcast to tell us how to really nurture skin from the inside out by feeding it the right foods and nu…
 
Question: Is a high value of arsenic a concern? Yes, arsenic is a toxin. You probably don’t want a lot of it, if it's just a little high it might not cause terrible damage. I would look at methylation if I saw high arsenic, because methylation is needed to get rid of arsenic. Oh actually I should add that methylation supplements have been shown to …
 
Question Are low polyunsaturated omega-6 values on the ION test a concern? Not the total, but if the arachidonic acid levels are low I would look at low arachidonic acid intake, or inflammation, or oxidative stress. It would concern me because arachidonic acid is important to a lot of physiological functions, but I don't care about the total omega-…
 
Question: When high selenium does not come down in response dietary efforts and cessation of supplementation, what's going on? Either there's high levels of selenium in the soil where your food is grown, or you have low methylation because methylation is needed to get rid of excess selenium. This Q&A can also be found as part of a much longer episo…

If you have any signs that something else…
 
Question: When should tryptophan be taken on a keto diet? Night, day, both? Presumably you're doing this to try to increase tryptophan getting into the brain. The best thing to do is to take it two to three hours away from other protein. The second consideration is if you have an allotment of carbs that you concentrate at one time of day, then it w…
 
With over 1300 posts on Wellness Mama, I think I’ve tried just about every diet, supplement, workout, and health tool out there! Today I thought I’d do something a little different and share how I’ve filtered through all that to settle on my personal health non-negotiables. My views have definitely changed on many things, while others continue to b…
 
Question: Do you think there are true non-responders to creatine, or do you think that those apparent non-responders have some defects in methylation that makes typical doses of creatine sufficient only for other needs. Alex Leaf would be a great person to ask about this and he's not here right now… [Alex appears] Alex, so Jen's question is are the…
