Episode #147: Mold, Gut Health And Perseverance

I have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to connect with and record this podcast with Dr. Jill Carnahan. Dr Jill is a well-known inspiration to those of us both inside and outside the functional medicine realm.  

Her vast knowledge and personal experience with mold exposure gives her a unique lens. And her experience with other chronic potentially debilitating diseases and her tenacity to overcome them gives her a unique platform from which to share her message.

Take a listen to this riveting episode about her health journey and her subsequent desire to help others regain and reclaim their health.

We discuss a myriad of topics, ranging from mold and mold exposure to gut health and resilience.

I am quite certain that you will enjoy listening and find her information enlightening.

If you would like to read a transcript of the episode, you can do so here.

We talked about:

  • Jill’s personal journey of overcoming Crohn’s disease, breast cancer, and mold toxicity, and why talking publicly about them allowed people with all types of medical issues to connect with her story
  • Why we have more risk of mold toxicity than ever before
  • How interrelated autoimmune diseases, mold toxicity and leaky gut can be, and how confusing the overlapping symptoms can make diagnosis and treatment plans
  • The importance of the microbiome in our gut and our diet in managing our health issues
  • The role of the limbic system in our body, and how trauma and stress responses can influence chronic illnesses and autoimmune conditions
  • Why a personalized diet for your genetics, symptoms, lifestyle, and past experiences is always better than following the recent fads
  • The dangerous toxins to be found in personal care products, and how to start removing these products from your lifestyle and replacing them with better alternatives
  • Why it’s essential that you advocate for yourself in relation to your health
