Guest-Heretic-Dr.-Steven-Lin-Author-Of-The-Dental-Diet-is-on-The-Nutrition-Heretic-Podcast.png

Dr. Steven Lin, author of The Dental Diet is on the Nutrition Heretic Podcast People avoid the dentist for all sorts of reasons; from the pain of getting their mouth drilled to the painful amounts of money they have to spend on drilling and treatments. This week we speak with Dr. Steven Lin, author of The Dental Diet: The Surprising Link Between Your Teeth, Real Food and Life-Changing Natural Health.

In this interview, we discuss the downward spiral in dental health despite the use of fluoride, the health repercussions of having a jawline that is too narrow to accommodate a full set of teeth, and how orthodontics merely address the cosmetic appearance of teeth.

The truth is eating the right foods can lead to less painful dentist visits and it’s never too early or too late to start changing your diet for improving the health of your teeth.

Dr. Steven Lin is a dentist, TEDx speaker, and author of The Dental Diet. With a background in biomedical science, Dr. Lin has dedicated his career to outline the nutritional basis of dental disease. His goal is to help define crooked teeth as a nutritional deficiency and the most significant chronic health problem on the planet.  You can connect with Dr. Lin through his website, Dr. Steven Lin, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Carolyn-Dean-on-the-Nutrition-Heretic-Podcast-about-the-Magnesium-Miracle.png

Carolyn Dean speaks on the Nutrition Heretic Podcast about the Magnesium Miracle If a mineral isn’t studied in the US, does that mean it isn’t important? As we learned in a previous episode, sometimes American doctors and researchers resist giving credence to studies conducted abroad. This certainly appears to be the case with the mineral magnesium. Magnesium is integral to as many as 800 enzyme reactions in the body yet very few modern people get enough of it. Dr. Carolyn Dean, author of The Magnesium Miracle, joins us to discuss how she first discovered the power of this miracle nutrient and the broad range of health complaints supplementation can address.

After you listen to this episode, be sure to catch the second half of the interview when Dr. Dean explains the downsides of supplementation and why she created a unique magnesium supplement that removes the issues typically experienced at therapeutic doses.

Dr. Carolyn Dean is a medical doctor and naturopathic doctor. She is the author of 110 Kindle books and 35 health books. She is on the Medical Advisory Board of the non-profit educational site - Nutritional Magnesium Association. Her magnesium outreach has won her an award from the Heart Rhythm Society in the UK for “Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management-2012.” Dr. Dean has a free online newsletter, a valuable online 2-year wellness program called Completement Now! and a 2-hour call in Radio Show at Achieve Radio Mondays at 4pm PST.

Day 19 - Are You Drowning in 8 Glasses?

If you don’t drink this as much as is recommended, then there may not be a need for alarm. However, if you have been drinking the recommended amount, you may want to cut back. Moderation is truly key, but if you’re drinking 8 glasses of water, moderation is not even close to what this practice represents. Believe it or not, drinking too much water can lead to a host of health problems including coma and death. Get the scoop below in today’s video.

Last year, I wrote a book all about drinking water. How much to drink, what kind is best and all the good stuff in between. You can pick up a copy of Drowning in 8 Glasses: 7 Myths about Water Revealed on Amazon.com.

"E" Is For Asthma

asthma-rates-among-children.jpg

Many parents-to-be worry about the dramatic increases in asthma rates among children and there is good reason for concern. Many doctors cite environmental factors such as mold, cigarette smoke, and car exhaust for these rises. Others consider certain foods such as eggs, milk, and nuts to be incompatible with the human body. But more and more evidence shows that not eating certain foods may, in fact, be a significant contributor.

Researchers at the University of Aberdeen in the United Kingdom followed 1,861 pregnant women throughout Scotland. Results showed that women with low vitamin E intake during pregnancy were five times more likely to have asthmatic children than mothers with high vitamin E intake. Furthermore, regardless of the child’s diet at age five, children whose mothers consumed higher amounts of vitamin E during pregnancy were likely to remain asthma-free. In previous studies, higher intakes of vitamin E during pregnancy resulted in fewer instances of wheezing in two-year olds without colds.

According to head researcher Dr. Graham Devereux, vitamin E consumption during pregnancy influences both lung growth and levels of airway inflammation. Asthma is the result of inflammation in the lungs. Vitamin E is known to protect the mucous membranes in the lungs and reduce inflammation by mopping up dangerous free radicals, which cause damage. The study followed children for five years to provide a more accurate prediction of long-term asthma risk.

Dr. Devereux concludes that lowered vitamin E intake over the past 50 years is a likely contributing factor in today’s skyrocketing rates of asthma. In addition, low-fat diets and increased consumption of processed foods increase vitamin E requirements. He recommends that women consume more vitamin E-rich foods rather than rely on supplements. Meat, oily fish, seafood, green leafy vegetables, avocados, nuts and sunflower seeds are all good sources of vitamin E.
