841. Major Deficiencies in Our Diet
According to an article Dr. Martin recently read, 25% of North Americans are deficient in iron. Surprisingly, there’s more talk today about too much iron than being deficient in the mineral. When you consider the North American diet, consisting primarily of crappy carbs and sugars, it’s no wonder 1 in 4 people are deficient. Many women are also deficient in iron because of heavy bleeding from their menses. Join Dr. Martin in today’s episode as he talks about the major deficiencies found in our diet and why they exist.

In part 1 of this series, Dr. Martin looked at obvious signs you have a sluggish thyroid. In today’s episode, he looks at secondary signs that may be contributing factors.

839. Signs Your Thyroid Is Sluggish – Part 1
Your thyroid is like the gas pedal in your car. Push harder and you go faster. Take your foot off the pedal and you slow down. For many women, it’s like their car is stuck in neutral. Their thyroid has become sluggish almost always because of horror-mones. In today’s episode, Dr. Martin looks at some obvious signs that you have a sluggish thyroid. When a woman starts losing her hair, it’s a sure-tell sign the thyroid is involved. Same goes with weak, brittle nails. There’s a good chance you have a sluggish thyroid!

837. Vitamin D and the Microbiome
A recent study asked about the best sunscreen you can use… and the answer may surprise you! It’s not any sunscreen or oils, or even covering up, it’s in fact vitamin D! Dr. Martin has always said you’re a human solar panel and that every cell has a little antenna looking for sunlight. What surprised Dr. Martin about this study, is that when the sun hits your skin, it stimulates the microbiome. This is another major discovery! Join Dr. Martin in today’s episode to learn how vitamin D and the microbiome are influenced by the sun!

836. Can Vitamin D Be Toxic?
Dr. Martin reviews an article about vitamin D that was recently published in the Toronto Star. The article says hospitals are seeing more vitamin D toxicity than ever before. The article is misleading because those who got toxic were taking 50,000 IUs daily. No one should be taking such high concentrations unless for short-term therapeutic use. Since vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin it will accumulate in the body, but rarely does it turn toxic. Dr. Martin also teaches on vitamin D and explains why it consistently gets negative reviews in today’s episode!

835. Antibiotics and Babies
Dr. Martin shares a groundbreaking study out of the University of Helsinki in Finland. The study has found that a single course of antibiotics affects the gut microbiome of children. The first line of the study says that fungus, candida, and yeast was growing in the microbiome of kids compared to the control group who had never taken antibiotics. This discovery may be groundbreaking to the medical community, but Dr. Martin has been teaching this for years. He’s excited the results are seeing some ink and thinks every physician ought to get a copy of this study.

832. A Love/Hate Relationship with Aspirin
Dr. Martin has a love/hate relationship with aspirin! He loves it for acute conditions like if someone is having a stroke, but not for long-term use. Aspirin was once recommended by doctors to reduce strokes as it's an anti-clotting medication. But over the last 20 years, it’s been discovered that the benefits of aspirin are far outweighed by the risk of taking aspirin. Join Dr. Martin in today’s episode to learn why taking aspirin daily may cause more harm than good!

830. Fibre Is Overrated
Dr. Martin shares two studies that confirm something he’s been saying for a long time… that fibre is overrated! The first study shows that insoluble fibre in particular feeds your bad bacteria, and that’s not good. The second study goes along with the first showing that fibre can actually help grow tumours. Again, not good! Join Dr. Martin in today’s episode to understand why these studies are significant!

829. Harvard Study Swept Under the Rug
Dr. Martin looks at a Harvard study from 1997 that was swept under the rug. The study concluded that people with the highest triglycerides and the lowest HDL are 16 times more likely to die of heart disease! Cardiologists are taught to look for total cholesterol and LDL and they don't look at triglycerides the way they should. Dr. Martin has been screaming about this study for decades and thinks it needs to be revived. Join Dr. Martin in today’s episode as he looks at this forgotten study!

827. Vitamin D and Hospitalization
A new study out of Sweden is saying that 40 cents of vitamin D saved the cost of hospitalization by 21 days! Researchers gave one group of participants 10,000 IUs daily, and the other 2000 IUs daily. Dr. Martin shares the results of the study in today’s episode. Dr. Martin says if vitamin D was a pharmaceutical it would have won a Nobel prize, but because it’s a vitamin, there’s no money in it. If researchers would give it a chance they’d see how essential vitamin D is to every organ in our bodies! Don’t miss this important episode!

826. Don't Drink Milk… Eat Cheese!
The number one food allergy is milk and It’s estimated that close to 70% of the population has some form of lactose intolerance. Dr. Martin looks at an observational study on acne and dairy. The study looked at people that had acne and stopped consuming dairy. Milk is not what it was in the 1970s and you shouldn’t be drinking it today. Dr. Martin then discusses one of his favourite topics… cheese! He doesn’t want you drinking milk but wants you eating cheese. Learn why in today’s episode!

825. PPIs and Diabetes
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are used for acid reflux and conditions such as GERD and Barrett's esophagus. Many people have trouble with their stomachs with acid coming up. It can be a very unpleasant condition and literally so painful at times, it mimics a heart attack. A new study is showing that people who take PPIs are much more susceptible to diabetes. Join Dr. Martin as he breaks down the study and looks at insulin resistance as a possible cause.

824. Fatty Liver and Heart Disease
Every now and then, Dr. Martin brings you a knock your socks off moment, and this is one of them. The American Heart Association is now linking non-alcoholic fatty liver to heart disease! Dr. Martin says this is maybe the first time he’s seen the connection, at least in mainstream medicine. In the 70’s there was cirrhosis of the liver, but never non-alcoholic fatty liver. The study goes on to say that 1 in 4 people, including children, in North America have a fatty liver. Join Dr. Martin in today’s episode to understand why the linking of fatty liver and heart disease is so significant!

822. Sticky Blood Vessels
A new study is saying that 90% of the population is walking around with sticky blood vessels. What does this mean? Dr. Martin teaches on insulin resistance, or high circulating insulin like we call it at the Martin Clinic. In every chronic disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes, autoimmune… the elephant in the room is food. The food we eat causes our pancreas to secrete insulin, and when we’re eating crappy carbs and sugars, this insulin never shuts off. When this happens we become insulin resistant and in most cases, you’re already a diabetic. Learn how sticky blood vessels occur and why they’re dangerous to our health!
