The Healthy Skeptic Podcast – Episode 5

March 15, 2011 in Podcasts | 7 comments

ths podcast logoIn this week’s show we discuss the similarities and differences between the Paleo, GAPS and Weston A. Price approaches to nutrition. Specifically, we explore:

  • The health of traditional cultures studied by Weston A. Price
  • Raw dairy, IGF-1 and cancer
  • Signs and symptoms of raw dairy intolerance
  • Properly prepared grains – worth the trouble?
  • How to reintroduce and test your tolerance for dairy
  • A1 vs. A2 milk: significant difference or bogus theory?
  • Which is best: Paleo, GAPS or WAPF?

We covered a lot of ground, so the show’s a bit longer than usual (1 hour, 15 minutes).

Make sure to tune in next week – Kurt Harris will be our guest! More to follow soon about that.

Speaking of elimination diets and the lack of reliability of IgG testing, I have heard of another kind of testing to get at food sensitivities called MRT-LEAP. In theory this tests whether your immune cells release other kinds of chemicals besides antibodies, such as histamines, in response to certain foods. Have you heard of this test? What do you think of doing a test like this to help figure out the what to initially avoid in starting an elimination diet?

If you have it, would love a link to the site you mentioned comparing live cultures in fermented dairy vs supplements. Thanks!

Chris, just drove from Chicago to Florida listening to all your podcasts along with Robb’s, awesome. I was home visiting my sick mom who is on 8 different meds for things ranging from diabetes to high cholesterol. Learned so much listening to you. Thanks so much for what you do!
