If your fish is sick do you make it wear a mask, or do you change the water?We’re all swimming in a soup of toxic chemicals. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the lotions and potions we put on our skin, and the dust under our beds, are contaminated with myriad toxins that can, over time, make us sick.Just because they haven’t been proven to kill us doesn’t mean that they aren’t harming many of us when encountered frequently in our environment, with our endocrine system, babies in bellies, and our kids being particularly vulnerable. It can be easy to ignore, or too overwhelming to change, but we’re approaching the tipping point where our health might not be able to take much more. Enter Emma Rohmann. Our first solo non-ND guest with the smarts and ND-like integrative thinking to tackle this problem for you, your family, and future generations.

Yin in the Time of Yang
Our culture and institutions have been overly focused on the masculine, and our approach to medicine is also reflective of this very imbalanced bias towards the masculine.The masculine approach is like this -- fix this precise problem for me, now, then we’re done. It’s compartmentalized, it has an end point, a goal. Success is the achievement of the goal (the symptom is gone).The feminine perspective understands that, in reality, we are constantly changing beings and our healing work is never really done. It is more of a holistic, process-oriented perspective. In reality, we need BOTH. It is this AND that, not this OR that. Join Jessika Marie and her husband Dr. Ben Snider ND as they help us weave a bit more yin into the yang in our discussion on the need to recognize the importance of the Divine Feminine in a more comprehensive and balanced approach to health and medicine.

When your thyroid is a bit sluggish, your brain tries to lash it into shape with a TSH-shaped whip.But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the thyroid is going to do what your brain is telling it to do -- what if you’re low in B12, iron, or vitamin D?Have you had a thyroid ultrasound?What if you have an autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s going on?What if your foundational lifestyle health practices such as sleep, nutrition, and stress management are the missing piece? Join us for a conversation with Dr. Katie Rothwell ND as she goes beyond TSH and describes her 3 pronged approach to thyroid health.

Some people may say that Naturopathic Medicine is “the Medicine of the Future”. But by the same token, Naturopathy is a branch of Medicine that is rooted in observing, cooperating, and adapting to natural phenomena, and Nature’s wisdom is timeless.As such, it is a medicine of the past (and the present), and it is important to remember the roots of Naturopathic Medicine. It is fitting, then, that we were able to have a conversation with Dr. Richard Vuksinic ND, a true student of the timeless phenomena of Nature and one of those “roots-y” Naturopathic Doctors who reminds the rest of us Naturopaths why we do what we do, and why it makes so much sense. Except for his strange infatuation with Doug Gilmour and the Toronto Maple Leafs, it is fairly safe to say that everything Naturopathic Medicine courses through his veins and forms every fibre of his being. Join us as our friend and colleague, Dr. Richard Vuksinic ND, touches on hormesis, the microbiome, mitochondria, and deep Nature connection.

Physician, Heal Thyself.
A serious diagnosis can be a shocking event for any of us. How we respond may involve some common themes or stages, but the process we each go through is very personal. We often wonder why it has happened, what could we have done to prevent it? And when it so happens that the patient is a Naturopathic Doctor, arguably the best equipped at preventative medicine, what are the doctor’s orders?Join us for a conversation with Dr. Baljit Khamba ND as she shares some of the learnings of her life journey after “ringing the bell”.

Sleeping with the Enemy
Nobody wants any herpes virus, but you probably have one. The funny thing is, they call you out on your health, and if a lowly virus wants out, your health is on shaky ground. (seriously, listen in for a live TNP recording of an actual earthquake in action)Join us for a seismic episode with Dr. Kasey Holland as she re-activates our interest in how the KISSING DISEASE (mono) may rear up later in life and leave you wondering why you’re TIRED AF.

Birth of a Mother
“Being a mum is not a diagnosis.”The birth of a child coincides with the birth of the mother.Your brain changes, your hormones change, you’re more susceptible to some autoimmune changes, the baby blues, fatigue, etc. -- it’s a perfect storm of changes, and in all of the newness of birth, it’s difficult to tell what’s normal and what’s not. Join us as Dr. Danielle Watson ND drops some proper mama science and cross-cultural wisdom and helps us see that there’s so much that Naturopathic Medicine can offer before, during, and after the birth of a mother.

“It’s Just Stress”
When you’re told “it’s just stress” it’s about as helpful as someone telling you to “calm down”. Our simplistic and binary “fight or flight” and “rest and digest” understanding of the nervous system is outdated. After Dr. Dave finally got her name right, our angelic guest and expert vagal knob-twiddler Dr. Kristina Kastalanac ND helped us understand how polyvagal theory and her experience with somatic experiencing can help your nervous system unwind in ways that go beyond wine, bubble baths, and essential oils.

Just the Tip.
When it comes to cancer (or any other serious or chronic disease), you can't stick with a “just the tip” approach (pssst get your mind out of the gutter -- we're talking about icebergs). A few supplements and some extra vegetables don’t come close to honouring the struggle that you’ve been through. This is your life -- the stakes are high, and if you’re motivated to do what needs to be done to regain your health, then you can’t just dip your toes in.You gotta go all in.Our deep-diving instructor for this episode is Dr. Lori Bouchard ND. Join us as she convinces Dr. Dave to give colon hydrotherapy another chance and shares her unique model of care.

Get crackin’ with Dr. Zeynep
You have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and you’re ready to start a family. The fertility journey may require some extra consideration. You might want to get crackin’, but it is one of the only situations in which delaying pregnancy to get your overall health and ‘eggs in a row’ can be an egg-cellent idea. Dr. Zeynep Uraz, an associate professor and guiding light in women’s health, joins us to crack open the conversation about supporting fertility with PCOS.

You can’t flog a dead horse. Well, you can, but it’s not going to get you anywhere.You can drink all the green smoothies, haul some major CrossFit ass, and take your adrenal support, but if your mitochondria aren’t in the game, the game is over before it even starts.Like money, ATP makes the (biological) world go round. Your 10 million billion mitochondria provide the currency that your body understands as ENERGY. If these little workhorses don’t do their part, whether it’s due to unhealthy cells, toxicity, or nutrient deficiencies, your energy will hit a dead end. Luckily we have mitochondrial whisperer Dr. Bryan Rade ND to plug us into the grid.

The Weight of your Past.
Your present mental health may have a lot to do with your past. If we cannot process the emotions and traumas of the past, it can be difficult to move forward. The consequences of our mental-emotional health can affect our physical body in a bidirectional relationship. Supporting the function of the liver, gut, and adrenals as well as facilitating the processing of past traumas may be key elements that contribute to our capacity to support our mental health; to become whole, that is, to heal. Join us for an insightful conversation with Kenyan Psychotherapist and Naturopath Dr. Ameet Aggarwal, whose grasp of Naturopathic fundamentals is deep. We learned a lot, and we think you will too.

There’s Something About Mary Choi
We’re going to be honest with you. This episode was supposed to be all about maintaining or starting healthy habits in stressful times, which is important, and so we did discuss some really good stuff at length based on the science of making habit changes. But for whatever reason (blame it on the COVID), the discussion we ended up having changed direction, and if you think Naturopathic Medicine is great, it’s really going to get you in the feels.We’re not in the habit of making our guests cry. But we are in the habit of having guests who are passionate about why they do what they do. And you’ve gotta admit…

Health is Erected on a Solid Foundation
Testosterone is critical for men’s health, but there’s way more to it than biceps and boners. There is a gradual decline in testosterone in men from the age of 30 and this has a profound effect on many aspects of your health, and there is a strong relationship with mood, motivation, and dopamine.If you’re feeling a bit limp, don’t be too hard on yourself because you’re not alone; the general trend of decline in testosterone (in the western world) has caused the “normal” range to decrease, but is “normal” the same as “optimal”? Join us and men’s health expert, Dr. Sam Medeira ND, as we take the testosterone discussion beyond the meat and two veg.

Mind Your Heart.
“I think, therefore I am”. But sometimes, oftentimes, those thoughts aren’t serving you. Is your mind shouting over your heart? Or could you perhaps create a more inclusive dialogue? Join us as Dr. Christina Bjorndal ND puts Kara on the heart seat and helps us learn how to pause and take the time to lead from our hearts.

Hard to Kill
With a dose of tough love and at least one solid F Bomb. Dr. Tyna Moore ND DC challenges herself, and us, to take responsibility to make ourselves “Hard to Kill”.

Flatten your Own Curve
Our guest is the unofficial king of the Naturopathic profession (whatever that means), Dr. Paul Anderson ND.He knows complex chronic diseases inside out, but you know what he also knows?He knows that it doesn't matter what the health challenge is -- if it is cancer, Lyme disease, or viral pandemics -- the outcomes will generally be better when we start with the basics, the foundations of health.No, don't go around licking doorknobs, but listen to the king and maybe, just maybe, you'll be able to #FlattenYourOwnCurve.
