Natural MD Radio: Detoxification – Does What You Eat Matter?

Today, in the third episode in the Natural MD Radio series on detoxification, I explain what ‘food as medicine’ really means and show you “the why” behind your body's need for specific nutrients to support detoxification.

I also teach you about the word ‘phytonutrient’  – perhaps one of the most important food words to know to help you stay optimally healthy in today’s world.  And I share which foods are the ‘powerhouses' for these nutrients.

PLUS, as a special gift, you get access to the Natural MD Detoxification Foods Guide. It’s totally FREE and you can use it to bolster up your next grocery shop with all the nutrient-rich foods I talk about in the podcast – and more! Download your copy here – no sign-up required.

Hi! I'm looking for the Phases of Liver Detoxification chart you refer to, I'm not seeing it. Can you guide me in the right direction?

Hi there! I love this podcast, and I'm particularly loving this series on detoxification -- the deep science is so awesome!!!!! I always tell friends that nutrition is the only medicine that really makes sense to me bc it's the only thing that can get at the root of the chemical reactions our bodies do 24/7/365 to survive! I'm a biochem nerd ;) I came over here to check out the liver diagram you're talking about in the episode, but I'm not seeing it. Can you direct me?

Fantastic episode! I can not find the links you mentioned in the podcast. Also, have you done a blog about whole food support for those struggling with type 2 diabetes and holistic alternatives to drugs like metformin?

    Try Not a blog specifically on that topic, but her book - The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution - could be very helpful.
