paleo solution podcastLast week I was interviewed by Robb Wolf and Andy Deas for their fantastic podcast, The Paleo Solution. I think it’s going to be released on Tuesday (Episode 69). If you’re not familiar with their show, head over to Robb’s website and check it out. You can also subscribe in iTunes. We discussed dairy products, leaky gut, fish oil, and a number of other topics. Let me know what you think in the comments section.

Hi Chris – I’m really enjoying your podcasts, as well as this week’s visit w/ Robb and Andy.
On that episode, you talked about leaky gut. What methods do you use to test for it? 3-4yrs ago I was diagnosed w/ leaky gut by a naturopathic doctor I was working with at the time, and I believe she used a GI / stool test to determine that.
I’m just wondering if I healed it correctly, or if it’s still going on. With her, I was on months of various Biotics nutritionals for leaky gut, as well as a very basic anti-inflammatory diet.

I’ve been working w/ an acupuncturist for about 3 yrs now, and he uses Bio-Set methods to determine what foods i’m reacting to. 3 yrs ago, I was reacting to almost every food. Now it’s just gluten, sugar, corn, and some nuts.
But I’d like to determine the health of my gut…

I use the Cyrex Labs intestinal permeability panel. Unfortunately, you have to be a practitioner to order it.

Ok – thanks Chris. I’ll see if my D.O. will order it for me. I’m the one who posted the question on Robb’s site (back when he announced you were coming on) regarding trying to figure out what to start fixing first when I’m dealing w/ hypothyroid (NOT hashimotos, no ABs detected), adrenal insufficiency, candida overgrowth, multiple food sensitivities, low testosterone, low progesterone, hmmm….I think that’s it. I’ve been chasing my tail on this stuff since 5 years ago when I did fitness/figure shows, went thru a divorce, moved to a new state, started a new job,… and kinda over-stressed my system (I believe)…
I’m in the fitness / nutrition field, so at least I feel pretty in tune…but somehow still clueless.
Currently happily married, love my career, hoping to get pregnant…

thx again,

Kari: probably a good idea to get some help. It can be a challenge to figure this stuff out on your own – even when you know what you’re doing. That’s why most health care practitioners (including me) don’t treat themselves. Helps to have some outside perspective.

Thanks Chris – Yeah, I didn’t mean that I’ve been going it alone. I’ve worked w/ a half a dozen different specialists over the years on this – from naturopaths, acupuncturists, D.O.s, Med Drs, Endocrinologists, etc.
thx again for your help!

Thank you for all of the podcasts so far, including this interview with Robb and Andy! The information is great. I also appreciate your sense of humor and how relaxed you sound. Great to listen to!

Hi Chris — Thanks for the Robb Wolf podcast… it was really a great overview of the topic. You do indeed sound very relaxed and laid back… must be all that Zen meditation. ;-)

I was wondering about your statement that there are a lot more incidences of sickness from pasteurized milk than raw milk. I’ve been trying to do some research on the topic and my findings have been the opposite; for instance, one FDA study ( showed that there were 7 times more incidences of illness from listeria from raw milk than from pasteurized milk on a per-serving basis. How did you arrive at the conclusion that there are fewer illnesses from raw milk… are you looking at different data sources?
