Leaky Gut and the Microbiome

What is Leaky Gut and the Microbiome?  Latest research reveals we are doing ourselves a disservice by not looking at the root cause of illness and disease. How could that be? Due to the connection between the ecosystem in the gut and all the bacteria housed there, researchers are finding the direct correlation between how we eat, autoimmune conditions, mental health conditions, and nearly every one of these “mystery illnesses” that continue to pop up. Talking about the chemicals in our food and how they are changing our biology is a topic that many don’t want to hear; in fact, they believe I am quite controversial when I talk about this. However, that mental construct, carefully crafted through cultural paradigms and media programming, is doing no one any good. Instead, it’s making us sicker and sicker and raising our mortality rates, insurance premiums, and dissatisfaction with life with each passing...

Vaccinations and Serious Health Concerns | Dr. Jay Shetlin

Vaccinations have long been the center of ethical scrutiny. Though on one hand, mandatory vaccinations have been responsible for eradicating many issues of days gone by like smallpox, measles, and polio, many are now arguing that vaccinations are responsible for many of the serious health concerns our population is facing. In this blog post, you will read the transcription of a conversation I had with Dr. Jay Shetlin, Chiropractic Physician of South Jordan, Utah. Our goal behind this conversation was to open the dialogue, explore both pro- and anti- arguments, and help those who read, watch, or listen to this conversation to think more critically.

What would you like to do?” I recently had the privilege of being interviewed on the “Essential Oil Revolution” Podcast, the #1 Essential Oils podcast in the world with Samantha Wright.

Episode #161: The Coconut Oil Scandal

USA Today recently put out an article stating that “COCONUT OIL IS BAD FOR YOU.” The article claimed that people should stop eating coconut oil immediately, that everyone should start using hydrogenated vegetable oil again, and that this “darling” of the health food industry should immediately be called out. When you see headlines like this, it can be easy to jump to conclusions, right? Totally. And I saw the confusion that happened for my Body Buddies as they tried to make sense. I was grateful to be clued in early on this sensationalism so I could calm the fears of my Body Buds and continue teaching proper nutrition science as the true evidence states. Is coconut oil a saturated fat? Yes. Is saturated fat bad for you? It depends.  You see, here at the Power Foods Lifestyle, I try to train you to think critically, and to realize there is never any...
