In this quick show today we are going over Chris Kresser's recent article for Paleo Magazine about the health benefits of raw, natural honey! Sometimes lumped together with other sugars and sweet substances, Chris, believes that this is an undue reputation and that research shows that honey is a great component of a vital, ancestral diet. The article covers some of this research and compares it with its sweet counterparts before going through the five main benefits that can be accrued through its consumption.

On today's show, we are joined by the wonderful, knowledgable and charming Dr. Ron Ehrlich from the Sydney Holistic Dental Center. Dr. Ron is here to share some of his experience and wisdom around better oral care and how it fits into a more holistic and ancestral approach to health. Our guest has recently published a book titled A Life Less Stressed: The Five Pillars of Health and Wellness, as a means to share the lessons he has learned in the many decades of work in holistic dentistry.

In our conversation, we cover some of this experience and background before diving into dentistry as a profession and what a holistic approach to this area of medicine looks like. Dr. Ron talks about general health and the importance of the five pillars; sleep, breath, nourishment, movement and thought. We get into our typical ancestral discussion and look at the mouth, its evolution and centrality to our general wellbeing. Our guest brings up the ties between the microbiome in the mouth and the more commonly referred to one in the gut and stresses their interdependency. We finish off chatting about environmental factors and how they impact us continually before Dr. Ron shares a few thoughts on the simple sensibility of dental and general health.

On today’s episode, I get to have an in-depth conversation with the renowned integrative dietitian and high-performance coach, Esther Blum. Esther has helped thousands of women lose fat, eliminate the need for medication, reverse chronic illness and improve their relationship with food and their bodies, empowering them to enjoy sustained health and happiness. She also wrote a book called Cavewomen Don’t Get Fat, which listeners will get to hear more about as we talk through her holistic approach to wellness and her belief in “adding in” rather than a “taking away” when it comes adjusting your lifestyle. Inflammation and detoxing are concepts that are widely talked about but often misunderstood, and Esther sheds some light on these topics, explaining the process of ridding the body of toxins and making sure that your liver is healthy and doing its part.

She shares about the approach she takes with her clients, from systematically guiding them to alter their food and lifestyle choices to help them to discover what it is that they need to do to reach that next level of their health journey. We also chat about socially acceptable behaviors such as daytime drinking and boozy brunches and how to navigate this sensitive topic as a coach. Don’t miss out on this incredible conversation where you will also learn more about stress relief and a miracle supplement called phosphatidylserine!

On the show today we are very glad to welcome Simon Cheng the founder of Pique Tea! Simon gives us great insight into the oldest of beverages, its history, health benefits, and pervasive culture and traditions. We start off the episode with Simon's own story and how he came to find the amazing health benefits of tea through his own struggles and reoccurring issues. He tells us of the terrible ordeal he endured after a badly proposed and executed lung operation and how this led to serious changes in practice around his wellbeing. From there we chat about the essential parts of making delicious and healthy tea, from brew times to ingredients and more. Simon then expands on how Pique Tea is simplifying the tea making process and how this could change the American tea market and open it up to a whole new demographic.

We discuss some of the components and compounds that make tea so healthy and Simon makes a very strong argument for the use of tea for calm and clear thinking, gut health and consistent energy throughout the day, things that most of us would love! Pique Tea is offering our listeners a 15% discount off orders of $60 or more when you visit piquetea.life/paleomag, so do not sleep on that great special!
