What’s the Deal with “Healthy” and “Unhealthy” Fats?

We now know that fats were unfairly villainized in the 90s. But still, that doesn't mean that all fats are created equal: some are genuinely good for you, while others...not so much. But understanding which ones are healthy and which ones are harmful can be very confusing, especially since some things that sound healthy (we're looking at you, vegetable oil) are not. In this new guide, we break down the differences between healthy and unhealthy fats, including which oils to avoid, how to use different fats for different cooking purposes, why you should care about what kind of omega fatty acids are in your fats, and much more.

In this episode, we clear it all up, looking at what exactly MTHFR is (hint: it's not actually a gene), the different kinds of MTHFR mutations and which ones pose the most risk to your health, whether you should get an MTHFR gene mutation test, the best supplements to take if you do have an MTHFR gene mutation, the health risks associated with the mutation, and much more.

Dr. Bill Rawls on Healing Chronic Lyme Disease Naturally

It's Lyme Disease Awareness Month, and the unofficial kickoff to summer (aka shorts season) is this weekend. That means it's the perfect time for a little refresher on Lyme disease! In this week's episode, I speak with Dr. Bill Rawls, one of the foremost experts on this misunderstood disease. Dr. Rawls got bit by a Lyme-carrying tick when he was a child, but didn't experience symptoms of Lyme or get a diagnosis until he was near 50! Through his personal experience, research, and practice, he's come to understand that this is because of the relationship between chronic conditions and our immune systems — and because of this, he's found that chronic Lyme is best healed with natural treatments like herbs. Listen to this episode to learn the difference between acute and chronic Lyme disease, what all chronic conditions have in common, why some people react more severely to Lyme than others, which herbs he recommends (and how to take them), and much more.
