Join me for an interesting, clinician-friendly conversation on the gut/thyroid axis with Dr. Mike Ruscio.

In this podcast, Chris Kresser talks with Dr. Fitzgerald about being one of the first holistic practitioners to establish a solid online presence; why blogging and writing about functional, ancestral, and integrative approaches to health matter today more than ever

Mark Newman is the founder Precision Analytical and the developer of the DUTCH test, one of the most accurate and patient-friendly measures of sex hormones on the market. The test eliminates the need for multiple types of testing by using dried urine to measure sex hormones, hormone metabolites, and free cortisol. Free cortisol is a key indicator of the health of the HPA axis — and having that measure, alongside a measure of sex hormones and their metabolites, gives providers more information so they can achieve better clinical outcomes.
Miriam Kalamian, EdM, MS, CNS, talks with Dr. Fitzgerald about the how ketogenic eating for cancer differs from other keto and low-carb protocols and outlines specific steps for pacing a keto protocol for the specific needs of cancer patients.
Dr. Terry Wahls was a practicing primary care physician when she was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS. Despite treatment at some of the finest medical institutions in the United States, her health progressively declined until she could no longer walk.

I went to school with Dr. Hilary Andrews. She graduated before me, but I recall her then—she had a reputation for brilliance (and was voted class valedictorian, incidentally). Hilary applied that brilliance to childhood health and nutrition, which inevitably included investigation around vaccine safety. Flash forward to current time
All microbes, not just bacteria, can contribute to problems in the small intestines. Today more than ever, we see patients with hard-to-treat gut problems.
