Can Supplementing with Maca Improve Gut Health? (Podcast 81 with Dr. Anna Cabeca)

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.

Is Leaky Gut Making You Sicker?


No, we weren’t dealing with infertility, but our hormones were definitely out of whack, which was keeping us from healing our guts.

Bottom line: we want to help you cut down on healing time, as well as money spent, so that you can experience what it feels like to thrive.

In working with hundreds of private clients and the thousands of amazing followers, we’ve discovered that whether you’re struggling with IBS, IBD, autoimmune conditions, or any kind of chronic illness, there are certain patterns that keep repeating over and over. And there are certain key nutrients that can literally be the difference between staying where you’re at and reaching remission and levels of health you never thought were possible.

That’s why I’m so excited to share this new podcast interview with my friend Dr. Anna Cabeca with you. Her story of overcoming an improbable diagnosis, by all medical standards, will simply blow you away… and the root causes are right in line with what we’ve been sharing for years now.
