SCD Diet Podcasts

You may have heard of Maca before. Many people are supplementing with it to help with infertility and hormone imbalance…

But can it help with gut health?

What if I said the root causes associated with many cases of infertility were inflammation, hormone imbalance, and/or adrenal fatigue?

Sound familiar?

Well, if you’ve followed us for any length of time you already know this, but Steve and I are very particular about the supplements we share with our community. While creating a custom version of a real food diet is definitely at the base of any effective healing plan, many times supplements, proper testing, and working with a skilled practitioner are necessary to take your health to the next level.

When it comes to supplements, we know just how confusing and frustrating it can be to find quality that’s affordable, especially with all of the blanket statements and “magic pill” claims attached to thousands of products.

While we realize that, in most cases, no one supplement is going to be the answer for you, when we come across a game changer we’re inclined to share it with you. After all, one of our core missions is to follow our “time machine rule”, sharing things we wish we could get in a time machine and go back and give ourselves when we were sick.

Cynthia-Pasquella

She laid on the floor sobbing, wondering if it was time to end her life. Not something you’d expect to hear from the now healthy, happy and successful Cynthia Pasquella. She’s a dear friend of mine who used to have chronic fatigue syndrome and other health issues. But I had no idea she had to overcome so many challenges.

In this podcast, we went deep into the questions that everyone must confront in order to change their health:

  • Have you ever wondered “Why me?”
  • Have you asked the question “Am I worth it?”
  • Or thought “What’s my WHY in this life?”

If you are anything like Jordan and I, the day will come when you do.

And there are all kinds of other mindset issues that will pop up as you begin your healing process like:

  • Do I really love myself?
  • Do I trust the process?
  • Do I deserve to be healthy?

In order to have a health transformation, you will have to change the way you think. It’s as simple as that. Take new actions in diet, lifestyle, supplements and mindset.

Which is why this podcast is so powerful. I’m actually in the middle of the 7-day exercise Cynthia gives in the podcast… and all I can say is wow – but more on that in the actual show.

Jennifer Fugo

Today, I’m excited to have a guest on to talk about saving money, shopping, and how to eat healthy without breaking the bank.

I know when I went from eating the Standard American Diet to the Gluten-Free Diet, and then to actually eating a real food diet (SCD), I noticed that my expenses kept going up and up and up.  I’m a big Dave Ramsay guy, and I track my money, and I know that right now I’m spending on average about $1,000 per month to feed myself and my two kids a real food diet and it’s expensive.

So, I have Jennifer Fugo on the show to talk about how we can save some money.  I met Jennifer when she interviewed us early last year and I’ve been looking forward to having her on the podcast to talk about saving money in general, because when we’re eating real food diets it’s typically a pretty expensive choice.

Jennifer is the founder of Gluten Free School and she teaches gluten sensitive individuals simple, savvy and empowering steps to get healthy.  She’s been living gluten-free since 2008 after a gluten sensitivity diagnosis.  And she knows what it feels like to be overwhelmed by the cost and the complicated aspects of making the choice to eat real food.  She’s a sought after expert, she has been featured on Dr. Oz, Yahoo News, eHow, CNN, Philadelphia Magazine and she now has an amazing new book, which we’re going to talk about, called The Savvy Gluten-Free Shopper: How to Eat Healthy Without Breaking the Bank.

Abel-James

If you’re an avid reader of ours, you know that I used to be 60 pounds heavier.  In fact, when I shared my before and after pictures here, I had several friends ask if that was really me (it is).  When I first started this health journey, I just wanted to get rid of my gas and bloating.  But as soon as that pain was gone, I started to focus on total health including losing all my extra fat, skin issues and brain problems.

One struggle I had that I don’t talk about nearly enough is my relationship with food.  I grew up in a “sweets” house and ended up developing a toxic overeating and stress eating problem.  I’ve had to re-establish my relationship with food and work at it from several angles.

It’s really easy to begin to hate food when it causes you digestive pain or doesn’t make you happy like it used to.   That’s why I think it’s always a good idea to honor our relationship with food and how it impacts our weight and health.  In today’s podcast I dive into this for a bit.  But for the rest of it, Abel James, from fatburningman.com, shares some awesome insights about fat loss and how the model industry tricks us into creating fake body image goals.

I met Abel a few months ago and we clicked on quite a few topics.  And for good reason.  He’s one of the most sought after people in the fat loss industry and it just so happens to be that he has the #1 rated health podcast in iTunes.

If you’re looking to lose fat and curious about your relationship to your body and food, then this podcast is for you.

It all started with a chance meeting in a stretch limo.

Soon we were deep in conversation about stool testing and parasites (my go-to topic when I meet beautiful women).

Once she started talking about ways to help people get off Prednisone I knew we had to record a podcast together.

Christa Orecchio is a Clinical Nutritionist, Holistic Health Counselor, and Founder and Owner of TheWholeJourney.com.

What I love about her is that her approach is clinical with a functional medicine spin, so like us, she’s always looking to get to the root cause of whatever is going on with someone’s health.

She’s been in private practice for the past eight years helping people heal using food as medicine, and I’m always excited to talk to practitioners about what’s working and not working out there in real life.
