Mold Toxicity and Mycotoxin Exposure with Dr. Amy Myers (Podcast 73)

Pic of Dr. Amy Myers

Did you know, approximately 1 out of 4 people walk around genetically predisposed to struggle with mold toxicity and most don’t even know it? Everyone in your family could be just fine but you might actually be reacting violently to toxins in your household. If you have tried changing your diet, adding supplements, and are still feeling lousy, this podcast is for you. Read and listen on…

I was first introduced to Dr. Amy Myers at the 2013 Paleo f(X) Conference in Austin, TX. I had the pleasure of sitting in on her extremely informative talk.

(If you’d like more info on the annual Paleo f(X) Conference, go here.)

We spoke again in October of 2013, and I was fortunate to be able to answer her questions about the SCD, my journey, poop and digestive problems on her show, The Myers Way Podcast. As exciting as that was for me, I’m absolutely pumped to talk about some important issues I’ve only recently been diving into: detoxification, toxins and molds.
