According to recent statistics, subclinical hypothyroidism may be more common than type 2 diabetes. In this podcast Dr. Amy Nett and I will discuss the thyroid physiology behind subclinical hypothyroidism and its clinical consequences.

Could when we eat be as important as what we eat? It’s one more facet of optimal health and well-being we are just starting to explore. In the meantime, here are my thoughts on intermittent fasting and when it’s a good idea (or not) to think about adding it to your nutritional regime. https://chriskresser.com/is-intermittent-fasting-good-for-you/

Using ‘chronotherapy’ may help our out of whack circadian rhythms get back in sync – and improve our overall health. “Internal clocks help living beings ready themselves for the daily events that are important to their survival: they act as a conduit between the organism and the environment.”
The ticking of the bodyclock can help us fight cancer, safeguard our hearts, time our meals, and enhance our intelligence

In case you missed this blog post last week--and because it’s important to understand what PPIs are and how they may affect your health--we are posting it again.
Proton pump inhibitors rank among the top 10 prescribed classes of drugs and are commonly used to treat acid reflux, indigestion, and peptic ulcers. Although generally assumed to be safe, recent studies have shown that they have numerous side effects, from an altered gut environment and impaired nutrient absorption to an increased risk for cardiovascular events, kidney disease, and dementia.

Modern research has confirmed that intense, intermittent exercise results in reductions in weight and improvements in blood-sugar regulation similar to equivalent amounts of lower-intensity continuous activity. Pg. 216 – The Paleo Cure

From carbon storage to removal of air pollutants (and the negative affect of those air pollutants), trees can have a big impact on our health and well-being, as well as our pocket books.
A new study from the US Forest Service estimates trees lining Californian streets provide benefits worth $1 billion. From carbon storage ($10.32 million) and removal of air pollutants ($18.15 million) to interception of rainfall ($41.5 million) and energy savings ($101.15 million), California's street trees are paying big dividends. Researchers concluded that for every $1 invested in street trees, the trees returned $5.82 in benefits.

Becoming a great parent is not something most of us are born knowing how to do, we learn it by asking questions and watching those who go before us. Men may have as many questions as women but traditionally they have fewer outlets in which to ask them or find support. Dad get-togethers could be one way for men to find community in fatherhood.
Economic and cultural shifts in the last decade have made fatherhood feel like uncharted territory. Dads’ groups can help.

I could have used this. My advice for being a dad was "go to work and earn money then play sports with him on the weekend". Since I was disable that didn't help me at all. As primary caregiver for our family, I had to basically reinvent "Fathering" on my own, with the help of some homeschooling moms.

Wondering if intermittent fasting is for you but have a few questions? In the RHR episode below you can find out when it’s a good idea and what you should be cautious about.
You can’t answer this question with a yes or no. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, and intermittent fasting could be a good idea or it could be a terrible idea, depending on your circumstances.

The research is intriguing and more studies are certainly needed. Could gastrointestinal issues and some autism spectrum disorders (ASD) be related? Current research seems to show a connection.

Having friends when you are young is not only good for your mental well being, it seems to have a positive effect on your physical health too - by reducing overall inflammation.
A social network benefits physical heath, and the benefits start early in life, according to a new study.

Over exposure to mercury can create havoc in our bodies. My guest Dr. Chris Shade has some thoughts on how we get exposed to mercury in the first place, the effect it can have on our bodies and what we can do about it.
I talk with Dr. Chris Shade, an expert in the environmental and analytical chemistries of mercury, about how we get exposed to mercury, the affect it can have on our bodies, what determines sensitivity to mercury, and the right (and wrong) way to test for mercury toxicity.

How cooking for yourself may help you break free of your sugar, salt and seed oil addictions.
Corporations hook us with unhealthy yet irresistible ingredients. Cooking for yourself is the key to breaking the cycle, according to the US food journalist Michael Pollan.

I'm a health detective. I help people with chronic, complex illnesses who haven't been able to find help anywhere else. I'm a licensed acupuncturist by trade, but I specialize in what I call "investigative medicine". I use modern lab testing and detailed questionnaires to determine the underlying cause of health problems (rather than just suppressing symptoms), and supplements, herbs and nutritional therapy to treat them.

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.

Hi Dear Chris: I am very impress by the information you are sharing with us - the people suffering from IBS or other digestive problems. Since the last five years I have been having horrible diverticulatis flares, after reading your articles,and taking notes, I am ready to make the changes in my diet to be a healthy and happy human being. Thanks, Luz Daugherty
