How to Use DIRT to Boost Your Health and Energy with Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein  

This week, I am talking with Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein on why dirt -- yup, that's right, I said DIRT -- is an integral part of good health.

Maya Shetreat-Klein, MD is a pediatric neurologist, herbalist, urban farmer, naturalist and author of The Dirt Cure: Growing Healthy Kids with Food Straight from Soil, which has been translated into ten languages. Dr. Maya’s philosophy is that the health of our inner terrain—our bodies– is a reflection of the health of our outer terrain, the natural world around us. Gut, immune and nervous system—and the many microbes therein—are a direct reflection of the food we eat and where that food comes from, from the soil it’s grown in to the water it swims in to the synthetic chemicals that it’s bathed in. Fresh food, microbes (that’s right, germs) and elements of nature—soil, sunshine, water, and fresh air—make children resilient and prevent or reverse their illness.

Here's a quick snapshot of what you'll learn in this interview:

How dirt impacts on gut health, immune health, and brain health Why we came to believe dirt is bad for us How dishwashers is linked to allergies and asthma The "hygeine hypothesis" of autoimmune disease How dirt and getting dirty relates to the gut, health and energy Why what you think you know about "bad” bacteria and "good" bacteria may be wrong Why Maya does not like the term ingredients What GMOs really are How multiple researchers have been exposed in promoting GMOs after being paid to do so Why feeding the world is not about more GMO crops, but about food distribution The "Cell Danger Response" and how toxins impact the mitochondria

How to Fix Your Circadian Rhythm and Sleep with Dr. Michael Breus  

Are you an early bird or a night owl? These are the two most commonly know chronotypes. But did you know that there are 4 and that your personal chronotype has a direct influence on your circadian rhythm?

This week I am so fortunate to interview Dr. Michael J Breus Ph.D. also known as “The Sleep Doctor.”

Dr. Breus is a clinical psychologist and both a diplomat of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and a fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He was one of the youngest people in the world to have passed the board at age 31, and specializing in sleep disorders. He’s 1 of 163 psychologists in the world with these credentials and this distinction.

You might also know Dr. Breus from the Dr. Oz Show where he is on the clinical advisory board and has appeared on the show more than 30 times in the past 4 years.

Dr. Breus is also the author of the book The Power of When, in which, he is discussing how your chronotype (Lion, Bear, Wolf, or Dolphin) can affect your circadian rhythm and energy levels if you do not know how to leverage it. In the book he shares the right time to do everything from going to bed, getting up, talk to your kids, ask for a raise… even when to have sex.

If you want to know what your chronotype is, go and take the quiz. Do it now, as it will help you relate to some of the topics we cover in the podcast but don’t forget to come back and listen to the podcast.
