The Most Random Episode with the Weirdest Ending
This week’s episode is a house call with That Naturopathic Podcast hosts Dave and Kara on the mic, keeping things a little more casual. Dr. Dave and Dr. Kara fill us in regarding what is happening within their clinical practice at the moment. Dave is a gut health focused ND, and Kara’s clinical focus in within women’s health. Both practitioners discuss the strengths of having a special interest category within their practice, advocating for their patients, and bridging the gaps within our healthcare system. One solution isn’t better than the other, rather an integrative approach will help you to be in the best possible health. Dr. Dave finishes off the episode in the weirdest possible way, with a “fun fact” from the gut gangsta himself.

Community and Connection During COVID
In a time where being connected is easier than ever, why are people so far removed? Social isolation has proven to be remarkably detrimental to our health, and yet more people today are suffering due to the current pandemic. Join us with Dr. Michelle Peris, as she explains her journey to connection and belonging, and how she is helping others to find it. Just because we need to maintain “physically” distanced, doesn’t mean we need to also “socially”distance. There is power in sharing your story, and this is how humans were designed to thrive.

Alphabet Soup for Y'all
LGBTQ2SIA+. Or is it 2SLGBTQIA+?Look, we’re all letters in the broth. Some of us are as common as the letter “E”, but all the letters are equally important. Creating a healthy, inclusive environment and language is like alphabet soup for the soul. Join us and Dr. Cyndi Gilbert ND as she clears up inclusiveness and queers up wellness.If you’d like to dive deeper, check out Dr. Gilbert’s courses at https://drcyndind-school.thinkific.com/collections.

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

(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…
