Fix Your Fatigue with Dr. Evan Hirsch
Among my clients recovering from breast cancer the most common symptoms I hear them struggling with is brain fog and fatigue. While these symptoms often arise in response to treatment all too often these symptoms are present prior to treatment and get worse as a result of treatment and become chronic. Fatigue affects millions of people and most don’t realize resolution is possible. In the United States, fatigue is the seventh most common reason for visiting an internal medicine practice, accounting for more than 10 million visits and more than $300 million in medical care costs. Conventional medicine does not have good tools to treat fatigue, thus a functional & environmental medicine approach must be used. Today, fatigue expert Dr. Evan Hirsch joins us to discuss addressing fatigue from a perspective of functional medicine and identifying and addressing the root causes of fatigue and strategies to reverse these debilitating symptoms. Dr. Hirsch suffered with fatigue for 5 years before he achieved resolution using the Fix Your Fatigue Program that he pioneered in his medical practice. Key points in today's interview: How does someone know they have fatigue? What is a “level 1 problem” and what are the 3 levels of fatigue? What are the causes of fatigue? Why is it so hard to treat fatigue? What is the 4 step Fix Your Fatigue System that you use to treat these causes? How do you know if you can help (or not help) someone with fatigue?

Are toxins in your home hurting your health?
Jen Barsamian is a non-toxic living expert. 19 years ago she embarked on a journey to recover her kiddo from a neurological disorder. She had no idea that this would lead her on a path to toxin free living (or that there was a necessity to live this sort of life for maximum health) and becoming as leader in teaching others about the necessity to live this sort of life for maximum health. The prevalence of cancer has been correlated to our ever increasing exposures to toxins. There is zero regulation in the personal care products industry and most products in store shelves contain neurotoxins. Today she Jen joins us to take about our toxin exposure in everyday products and cosmetics. She is determined to push the needle on chemical policy change in this country to grassroots efforts and “voting“ with their wallets.
