In the last Energy Boost episode number 12 I discussed the importance of getting more fermented probiotic foods into your diet to improve your overall health and energy, because of their added benefits beyond supplemental probiotics. The exception being, if you are trying to heal a specific illness like thrush or Crohn’s disease, utilizing a targeted probiotic strain with demonstrated efficacy in that condition may be the most effective approach.

It's fantastic to be consuming fermented foods, but in order for the probiotics to flourish in your gut they require the assistance of prebiotics, which is a term many people are still unsure of. This group of indigestible carbohydrates play a pivotal role in ensuring that we feel energized and healthy on a daily basis.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What are prebiotics and why are they so important for probiotics (the good bacteria)
  • The health benefits of consuming prebiotics
  • What are the 3 main types of prebiotics
  • Why resistance starch is so important
  • How prebiotics can help with weight loss
  • How to incorporate prebiotics naturally into your diet
  • Possible side effects of consuming prebiotics.

As discussed in episodes 19 & 20 of TheEdTalks with Dr. Greg Emmerson, Lyme disease is a widespread illness that many people have still never heard of and that many more are suffering with. This is a disease that if treated early can be eliminated but if left unchecked, can knock people down in many varied ways; chronic fatigue being just one of them.

The importance of understanding Lyme disease was made very real for me when I discovered a tick on my son's arm only days before recording this episode - very uncanny, especially since I had never seen a tick in our town previously.

In these episodes Dr. Kevin Conners, who himself has contracted Lyme disease twice before, helps us understand how to approach treating each stage of the disease. There's lots of valuable information that you'll gain from listening to these episodes.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What is Lyme disease
  • Why the bacteria that causes Lyme disease is so problematic
  • The different stages of Lyme disease and symptoms
  • How autoimmune diseases can develop
  • Why boosting your immune response or supplementing with herbals may not be a good idea
  • Methods for treating Lyme disease
  • Can Lyme disease be sexually transmitted
  • Why pregnant women should be extra cautious of tick exposure
  • What action to take if you find a tick on you
  • Why you should be cautious of nutritional based websites promoting cures for Lyme disease
  • 3 tips to feel energized and to become healthy and happy.

I’m a believer of doing things naturally, hence why I like consuming fermented or cultured foods as an important step to help cultivate a healthy gut and overall health. Low levels of beneficial bacteria and high levels of pathogenic (or bad) bacteria in the gut have been linked to everything from depression to diabetes and weight gain. This means that maintaining healthy gut flora is crucial to promoting optimal health, even if you don’t have any digestive symptoms. And I know that even though many of you listening consume fermented foods already, especially yoghurt I imagine, there are still lots of people who aren’t really aware of all the other types of fermented foods out there and their important health benefits beyond what plain natural yoghurt with live or active cultures can deliver.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What are fermented or cultured foods
  • Why fermented foods are so beneficial for our health and energy levels
  • Why you should eat a variety of fermented foods rather than just plain yoghurt
  • What yoghurt should say on the label to ensure you are getting probiotic benefits
  • 5 Reasons why you should incorporate more fermented foods into your diet
  • Possible side effects of consuming fermented foods or probiotics.
