221 – Cannabidiol (CBD) – Nutrient, Food or Drug? – My Interview with Stuart Tomc

This action by DEA is signaling a hard-line position on all cannabis products. It is perhaps only a shot across the bow of the hemp industry at this moment, but it certainly has many concerned and considering how to respond to the potential threat. Just to be clear, this is not an enforcement issue. CBD continues to be available in the marketplace, but it’s future is a little more obscure. For those who have discovered the benefits of CBD, then the concern that they may lose access to CBD is genuine. The risk that CBD may become an expensive pharmaceutical drug is possible.

220 – Chemical Free Cleaning Using Just e-cloth and Water – My Interview with Al Coviello

Using just water, the results showed that e-cloths removed over 99% of bacteria, locking them away inside the cloths’ fibers, where the bacteria stay until the cloths are rinsed. Further test show that, after a rinse with hot water, e-cloth reintroduced just 0.01% of bacteria back onto a sterile surface. Think about that. Wipe over 99% of bacteria off surfaces and wash it away with hot water. The cloth does not cross contaminate. All without any chemicals. And superior results for surfaces. You really should try them and see for yourself.

218 – Nurturing Your Probiotic Environment – My Interview with Josée Fortin

In this interview I will be speaking with Josée Fortin, who is a naturopath from Canada. We will explore one of A Vogels products Molkosan. Molkosan is a prebiotic made from a concentrated whey rich in L+ Lactic Acid. Molkosan is one of Alfred Vogel’s original remedies. Made from whey obtained from organic milk, Molkosan is rich in a substance known as L+ lactic acid which is now known to support the growth of good gut bacteria. In this way, it acts as a prebiotic. It does this by creating the proper and desirable colon pH. Proper pH = happy bacteria which will flourish better. This is different from prebiotic fibers which serve as food for the bacteria. This is more about the environment of the gut. It is also important to note that bad bacteria do not like L+ lactic acid.

215 – Probiotic Support for Irritable Bowel Syndrome – My Interview with Dr. Anurag Pande

In this interview Dr. Pande will discuss some of the issues with probiotics in general. If you are an informed consumer then you know that there are many products that are low quality and low effectiveness that exist in the marketplace. We have discussed these issues in previous podcasts. The solution is to understand the distinctions and seek out high quality products with clinical science to validate their claims.

In this case we are discussing the clinical evidence for IBS and Lactospore. Lactospore is also a unique probiotic in the manner in which it protects itself and that it is heat stable. It can even be used in baked goods and still remain viable. That’s a first for me. Heat is usually destructive to probiotics. So this is an interesting exploration of a novel probiotic. Dr. Pande explains this very well.

214 – Is Inflammation Caused by a Repair Deficit? – My Interview with Dr. Russell Jaffe

Inflammation is not a disease. It is a result of the body’s attempt to heal. When we use targeted nutrition, we are giving the body the specific nutrients to facilitate repair. Dr. Jaffe’s research has led to our understanding of the role of specific antioxidants for inflammation repair.

“Inflammation is like a smoldering fire that eventually eats through the fiber of our being. Because it affects the connective tissue infrastructure upon which our bodies are built, repair deficits can occur in any part of the body that is stressed, lacking in nutrients, or more exposed to toxins. This makes inflammation an underlying co-morbidity for many ills.
