023: The trouble with diagnosing Lyme disease with Patrick Plum

Wendy and Dr. Meaghan welcome Patrick Plum to the BTBHA podcast studio. He has been battling with Lyme Disease since 2012. He tells his story about visiting 36 different doctors and the difficulty with both getting a diagnosis and treatment options.

If you are someone that has been struggling to find an answer regarding medical concerns, you will totally relate to this podcast. His story shows how important it is to be your own advocate at times. He talks also about the difficulty with diagnosing and treating chronic Lyme disease because it is not recommended by the CDC (Center for Disease Control).

He also talks about the severe Jarisch-Herxheimer effects (also known as "herxing") that he has experienced from treatments. We talk about why these happen with Lyme. He also currently uses a Rife machine and Kangen water for additional support. Also, touches on utilizing the Gerson therapy with treatment.

This podcast is full of great information not only for Lyme patients but also anybody dealing with ongoing health concerns. Thanks Patrick Plum so much for sharing your story. If you would like to connect with him on facebook, you can find him as Patrick Plum and he has a Lyme warrior logo for his picture.

Podcast 022: Sugar! Yes, Please… Or, No Thank You!!!

On www.npr.org and possible FDA regulation of sugar on food labels.  We talk about why the FDA would be interested in labeling sugar percentage on the labels. 

A 20 oz bottle of Coca-Cola Classic has 65 grams of sugar. Same as FIVE Little Hostess Cupcakes

15.5 oz of apple juice has the equivalent of 10 Oreos

16 oz Monster has equivalent of 3.5 cups of frosted flakes. 5 servings of frosted flakes!

Need to read labels and have mindful eating.

Wendy and Dr. Meaghan would love to hear what your thoughts are on sugar regulation and the effect that sugar has on health.  Please either send us private comments and questions to info@btbha.com or post a comment on our Facebook page under this podcast post.  We would love to hear from you!

Podcast 021: Paleo and Primal Blueprint with Tim Popp

Tim Popp joins us to discuss lifestyle changes that he has made incorporating both Paleo diet and the Primal Blueprint into his life. The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson is a great book about reprogramming your genes through diet.  Tim shares with us some of the research and information about the benefits of taking out grains and sugar in your diet and finding the diet that works best for you. 

He also discussed one of the side effects of eating grains is the phytic acid that is in grains.  This binds up the vitamin and minerals in our body and limits all the physiological reactions. 

Another important fact that he shared is the importance of good fats for energy.  We are conditioned to think that a larger percentage of carbs are needed for energy but fat is a more efficient energy source for our body.  Large amounts of carbs and starches push insulin production that triggers your body to store fat.  Blood sugar regulation is such an important part of health, wellness, and appetite. 

Thanks so much Tim for sharing all your information with us.

Podcast 018: Eat Local Field Trip

Dr. Meaghan and Wendy discuss what they learned as they visited three local farms this weekend.  They visited:

 

1.     1. Garden of Eagan

 

2.     2. Shepherd’s Way Farm

 

3.  Thousand Hills Cattle Company

Grass-fed means that the cows are fed grass which is a more natural diet.  But a cow can also be fed grains unless it states “100% grass-fed.”  Therefore, it is important to know the difference.  Grass-fed beef is higher in Omega-3 essential fatty acids and other vitamins such as B vitamins and beta carotene.  Organic is a certification process that is costly and timely.  Therefore, some 100% grass-fed might not be organic but it still is rich in nutrients and vitamins.  It is important to make sure that your food comes from a good source.
