Featuring: a short and sweet must-listen from Jessie Inchaupse about the effect of glucose spikes on our bodies, one of my all time fave Insta follows Hayley Morris (Me Vs Brain) and the importance of food intolerance testing in my practice
So, we KNOW that refined sugar is bad for us but WHY actually is that? Like what does it actually DO to our bodies and why are 90% of us having glucose spikes daily? If aging well is of interest to you, you might also be interested to know the role sugar places in internally aging us!
It's short (22 minutes) it's sweet (no pun intended) and you need to hear this shizzle, not least for Jessie's accent alone (voice girl crush anyone?!). Perimenopause can be a time of creeping weight gain-this podcast can help break down the reasons why and what YOU can do about them:
If you do your own head in over-thinking all manner of women's health issues, then you're in for a treat! Hayley's account of short reels documents the ongoing internal dialogue our brains have with our body parts, with each body part, think vulva, vagina, cervix etc, ALL acted out by Hayley in the most hilarious costumes. You'll find yourself thinking 'Ahhhh I thought I was the only one who worried about that! over and over again as you chuckle into your headphones. If ever I need a quick pick me up, I go and see what Hayley has been up to. Guaranteed LOLS!
What is the point of food intolerance tests and why do I offer to my patients? Mainly because they save LOADS of time, effort and suffering versus doing an elimination diet alone. One quick and easy finger prick blood test and you know all your offending food and drink items within 7-10 days.
You can then use this to help GUIDE an elimination diet for the next 12 weeks.
Science-wise, they are a robust indicator of immune involvement, that is, they can show if your immune system has been triggered by an offending food or drink item as the antibodies they test for are a core component of the intestinal inflammatory response.
So, if you've not been able to get to the bottom of your headaches/migraines, IBS, fibromyalgia or skin condition, then a food intolerance test might be in order.
