25. Strategic Use of Peptide Therapy with Dr. Neil Paulvin
What do you know about peptides? No, I don't mean collagen peptides. Although, I do advocate for collagen peptide use. Peptides are naturally occurring short chains of amino acids in our bodies. They help communicate messages to our cells, instructing them in what to do. We have over 7,000 of them and they each perform a specific function, which is what makes peptides a great option for addressing specific problems. Peptides have been a game-changer for me and my personal healing and I'm so excited to share this information with you! A little bit about the episode: Today's podcast focuses on therapeutic uses of peptides for treating varied conditions. Learn all about the types of peptides that are out there and how each one can help YOU feel better. Don't worry, Dr. Paulvin doesn't talk about all 7,000. He just notes a few favorites. Highlights: ✨What are peptides? ✨What do peptides do in our bodies? ✨How do peptides work? ✨How to administer peptides in the most therapeutic form. ✨ Which peptides are best for you and your needs. Find Dr. Neil Paulvin Clubhouse: @drpaulvin Instagram: Website: Peptides are in danger of being pulled by the FDA. This is for political reasons, not because they present any harm or danger. Remember, our bodies make peptides. They are naturally occurring. Click the link and vote to save the peptides if you agree that we should have continued access to peptides!

21. How to Manage Your Toxin Exposure in a Chemical World with Dr. Aly Cohen
If you're trying to limit your exposure to toxins, then you understand the phrase "decision fatigue". Since when did going to the grocery store become such a stressful experience? Can you relate to trying to decipher which coffee creamer has the least amount of preservatives that you can't pronounce?  Or which body lotion contains the least amount of endocrine disrupting chemicals? And that water bottle, is it really BPA free? If there's no BPA, then what are they using to make the plastic hard? Have you ever accidentally bought meat that was "natural" instead of "organic"? I feel you. We spend time mulling over our options, because we know it matters. We know that what we put in and on our bodies impacts our health. We also understand that toxins are not only poorly understood, but also poorly regulated in the United States and it's up to us as the consumer to "shop smart." In this episode, I sit down with author, Dr. Aly Cohen to talk toxins. Dr. Cohen is so generous with her knowledge and expertise.
