On today’s episode of the podcast, I’m sharing a conversation I had with Josh Trent about his personal experience being erroneously diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Unfortunately, Josh’s story is very similar to the stories we hear in the clinic every week. Hypothyroidism is a real condition, but it’s frequently misdiagnosed in functional medicine because of a theory about what TSH and T4 lab ranges should be-- even though research and clinical experience continue to disprove this. If you’re wondering about your own hypothyroid diagnosis, lab results, thyroid medication, or how to really get to the bottom of your symptoms and improve your health, I hope you’ll listen to this episode.

Randy shares how he used Elemental Heal to finally recover from ongoing SIBO, fatigue, reflux, inflammation, joint pain, and more. He had tried all kinds of things including diets, medications, and supplements, but results were either minimal, temporary, or would improve one set of symptoms while seeming to trigger another. But when he gave his gut a reset with Elemental Heal, he experienced significant improvements in energy, gut symptoms, and joint pain within days. Hear Randy’s story in his own words, and our whole conversation, in this video.

He also shares a number of insights into how to heal from prior trauma and post concussion syndrome, the connection between exercise intolerance and the brain, and how to optimize cognitive performance.

On today’s episode of the podcast, we decided to do something a little different and have Dr. Joe from the clinic interview me. We covered some great questions from listeners, patients, and our own clinical team, and really dug deep into the motivation and thinking behind what I do. We also had some fun talking about morning routines, childhood memories, and pet peeves, all while sitting at a coffee shop.
If you’re curious about how I operate behind the scenes, what motivates us and what we aspire to at the clinic and within the functional medicine field, or if you just want to learn about my morning routine, give this a listen.

When it comes to mold exposure, toxicity and health, what’s really problematic, and what’s not? I learned a lot while going through my own health struggle with brain fog and trouble sleeping related to mold in the home I was living in, and Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) Michael Schrantz has been one of the most valuable sources of balanced information throughout that journey. On today’s podcast episode, Michael Schrantz is back to share his expert advice and insights on mold testing, mold removal, and health.

Functional medicine stool testing can be a helpful tool when it comes to uncovering gut health issues or imbalances in bacteria that might be contributing to bloating, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, brain fog, and everything in between. But are functional medicine stool tests validated, and how do they compare to traditional stool tests?
Dr. David Brady and Tony Hoffman from Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory, which is the lab that provides the popular GI-MAP stool test, help to answer these questions and clear up some of the confusion surrounding functional medicine stool test methodology.
We also talk about the importance of contextualizing test results, and how clinicians can combine the information they get from a functional medicine stool test with an individual’s symptoms, history, and other test results to make better decisions about treatment.
