Here is the interview from the Katie Coombs show Uncommon Sense. I am primarily in Segment 7 and 8. I wonder how many "ums" I actually said?
Hopefully this sparks questions for you. Please share and ask. I would love to hear your thoughts.
Special thank you to Katie Coombs for the opportunity.
I have seen news recently in regards to the effectiveness of birth control for decreasing teen pregnancy in the US with use of IUDs and Long-acting reversible contraceptive. Read more here.
Even New Zealand’s Otago University is proposing “Every girl in New Zealand will be put on long-acting reversible contraceptive drugs, delivered through implants or patches, before they become sexually active…” Read more here.
I recently had a conversation with a local physical therapist and he shared a story about a patient of his with multiple spinal tumors that he would also describe simply as “unhealthy.” After a few visits, he asked the patient about what he ate and drank during the day. What the patient responded was shocking. He drinks 38 diet sodas/day and…..….does not matter what else he said after that. My colleague went to look up aspartame toxicity on the web and found that yes it is a real thing.
The ICD 9 code is 995.3 and in October 2015 it becomes ICD 10 T78.40XA. These codes are for a diagnosis described as “Allergy, unspecified” or “adverse reaction to substance.” (www.ICD10Data.com) So I took the next step and went to PubMed.
Did you know that fats, also known as lipids, are an important macronutrient that supplies concentrated energy, supports cellular health, and aids vitamin and mineral absorption? Fat is good for your health and healing in moderation, but not all fats are created equal.
Many of us were raised on the idea that consumption of fat (aka lipids), especially from animal sources, results in obesity and heart attack. Yes, an overconsumption of lipids, calories, or sugar results in obesity and potentially metabolic syndrome. However, the reality is that healthy lipid consumption does not equate to obesity or heart attack. In fact, healthy lipid consumption promotes cellular health, provides cellular energy, improves absorption of Vitamins A, D, E and K, provides the precursor (cholesterol) to many hormones, as well as supporting other metabolic processes. 1
In discussions regarding sugar, many people notice it everywhere. So, the question is how much is ok if you can’t avoid it 100%?
That’s a tough question to answer. It’s really a personal answer. Perfection is never the key in life, but thriving thru life is the goal.
