This episode is about a clever way one entrepreneur connects people directly with their local food economies to save money, get more nutritious food, and support small family farmers. I’m here with Matthew, who’s the co-founder of LAEF, which is short for Local Agriculture Expansion Foundation. In a nutshell, LAEF is a free payment and e-commerce p…
 
Question: What’s the best alcohol to microdose? I prefer red wine on a taste, and tradition, and aesthetic basis. Just for background, I think Half a drink to a drink a day is probably the net maximal benefit for alcohol and that can be averaged. It doesn’t have to be every day. And that’s the main thing. If you would like to be part of the next li…
 
Question: What’s the best nutrition for panic and anxiety?Methylation is overwhelmingly important. I do think that other factors impacting dopamine can be relevant in the sense that the main way that methylation regulates mental rigidity is through decreasing the pool of tonic dopamine, which favors mental flexibility. And so, you can also favor me…
 
It’s been such a tough year for many people, and Thanksgiving is bound to feel different for many of us. In tough and uncertain times, it’s easy to focus on the negative… but what’s the benefit in that? In this Thanksgiving podcast, I share the lessons I’ve learned through all of this, including reinventing many aspects of my homeschool, my health,…
 
Question: What determines the absorption of nutrients? This is a gigantic question because what determines the absorption of any given nutrient is independent for that nutrient. And so, it’s different for every nutrient. And we just don't have that level of data to drive modeling of absorption of other nutrients in an accurate way. If you would lik…
 
Question: Do low serine levels require IV supplements?You're probably just depleting serine through the CBS pathway and just eat more protein and consider supplementing glycine or collagen along with it. I don't see why that would require IV supplements. If you would like to be part of the next live Ask Me Anything About Nutrition, sign up for the …
 
Question: How to fix high iron and calcium, low copper and magnesium, without blood donation? Your only options for decreasing iron levels are to eat a low meat vegetarian diet high in vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. That's probably your best bet. But the thing is, a very vegetable rich diet is gonna be pretty high in copper. And it's go…
 
Today I have the pleasure of welcoming a much-requested guest, Dr. Paul Saladino of “The Carnivore Code” fame. He’s a double board certified doctor with a controversial claim: vegetables aren’t as good for you as you think! Dr. Saladino goes deep on how he used a meat-only diet to reverse autoimmune issues, chronic inflammation, mental health issue…
 
Question: How much time should separate my zinc supplements and nut consumption? So, phytate primarily inhibits absorption of zinc and iron. I think you're gonna have a much lower probability of zinc encountering phytate if you take the zinc 2 hours after eating the phytate than if you take the zinc while you eat the phytate. But you know, if you'r…
 
Question: What’s the safe use of an iodine nasal spray?So, the iodine in the food and supplement guide for the coronavirus most recent version, I included iodine as a nasal spray. It's very important to look at the percentages. And so, 0.5% is the concentration recommended and that means that if you get a 10% solution, which is the most common one,…
 
We’re back for a second episode with Nora Gedgaudas, who is a board-certified nutritional consultant and a clinical neurofeedback specialist. She has over 20 years of clinical experience and she’s also an extremely detailed researcher. I always love to hear her thoughts on controversial health topics since she goes deep and leaves no stone unturned…
 
Question: Why would ferritin be extremely high when transferrin saturation is low? Ferritin as a potential indicator of iron overload should not be anywhere near the level that was set to try to rule in biopsy provable hemochromatosis that is just a profoundly negligent approach to setting the range for ferritin. Now, I think part of what has stopp…
 
Question: Can carnitine be used for fatty liver instead of choline? The role of choline and the role of carnitine have nothing to do with one another. Choline is going to help move fat out of the liver. Carnitine is going to help fat get into the mitochondria to be burned for energy. So, first of all, I think one thing that’s important to note is t…
 
Question: Is it OK to drink a pint of Gerolsteiner mineral water a day?It’s significantly less than a bottle. I guess conceivably if you're also drinking a lot of milk, or eating a lot of cheese, or supplementing with calcium, or taking bone meal powder, I guess you can get too much calcium. I wouldn’t really worry about it from 1 pint. I do think …
 
I am thrilled to say today I’m sitting down for round two with Dr. Ben Lynch, one of my favorite experts on genetics and epigenetics. He’s going to give us some very practical, useful tips on supporting your health by paying attention to your genes, and how to teach your kids to do this too. In this episode, we go deep on the concept that genes wor…
 
Question: Cataracts: what are the roles of methylglyoxal and polyols?Is the polyol pathway activation and methylglyoxal independent causes of cataract formation or are they related to one another? And the answer is a little bit of both. You know, if independent means unrelated, then they’re related. Not independent. But they are independent in the …
 
Question: Is the sugar in Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Acetate lozenges a problem?In that kind of protocol attuned to the progress of the potential cold, I find no alternative is more effective than the zinc acetate lozenges. And so, therefore, I'm willing to consume 40 or 60 grams of sugar for like 1 day or 2 days and then have it taper off grante…
 
Over the last few years, I have shared more about my own health journey and how I truly had to figure out my own individualized approach to health. I saw benefits from other systems — paleo, AIP, keto — but it wasn’t until I found a personalized approach that everything started to change. It can be hard to know how to take your own best path to hea…
 
Question: If I use SAMe for depression, what do I need for nutritional balance? Nutrition wise, I think the most important thing would be to make sure that you have an adequate glycine status. And you know, I don't know what your background is in terms of other issues, but the glycine buffer system, which is how you buffer excess methyl groups, whi…
 
Question: Should I take iron every day or use alternate day dosing?Reference: https://haematologica.org/article/view/9379 So, according to this abstract, in iron depleted women without anemia, oral iron supplements induce an increase in serum hepcidin that persist for 24 hours, decreasing iron absorption from supplements given later on the same or …
 
I'm not sure what the best dosing is given that it hasn't actually been studied fully, but I believe that it was estimated that in the people who have the highest collagen waste during collagen turnover that they can run short of glycine about 60 grams a day whereas I believe the more conservative estimate of glycine requirements based on people th…
 
I’m here with Julie Lythcott-Haims, who is the author of The New York Times best-selling book How to Raise an Adult. It’s one of my favorite books and I think her message is incredibly, incredibly important. I’m so excited to have her on today to share her perspective because Julie is a mom (and also a former corporate lawyer) with a very unique pe…
 
Question: Where should I buy my chicken products? You may have local options. And a good place to look for local options would be eatwild.com. I’m assuming it’s still up. That was a great database and probably still is a great database of pasture-raised products of any type. Not just chicken. And then of course, there are the mail order companies t…
 
I’m here with Dr. Nelli Gluzman, the founder and head physician at Blossom Pediatrics, a practice dedicated to helping families address the root cause of common childhood illnesses and problems. As with so many guests I met on the podcast, Dr. Nelli’s story started with trying to help someone close to her — her own daughter. Dr. Nelli turned her da…
