Muscle Medicine

Sep 27, 2018

There are countless unintended effects of the industrialization of our food. From an animal’s stress hormones to an overabundance of sulfates, all the changes in our food supply have consequences. My guest, Teri Cochrane, has come up with a fascinating, novel, and healthy approach to keeping these harmful elements out of our bodies.

Teri is a nutritional counselor and an integrative practitioner. By using muscle testing along with genetic analysis she helps her patients discover their previously unknown imbalances and take action to address them. Her book, The Wildatarian Diet, is the number one new release on Amazon and definitely worth a read.

In this episode, we discuss so-called healthy foods that can actually be harming our bodies. You may never want to eat peanut butter again after listening (Sorry!). We also talk about her particular approach to the gluten-free diet which is probably not like what you’d expect.

Teri tells us all about her Wildatarian diet and how it can help address and prevent a whole host of problems that result from the modern food chain. She even shares her seared duck recipe!

“We haven't been able to adapt. Our body and our biochemistry has not caught up with our food supply, how it’s changed in the worst sort of way and also to how our lives have changed.” [12:22]

“Be your own self-advocate and listen to your body. The body has so much information to share with us and if you can tune in, you’ll be surprised at how much it’s telling you.” [27:36]
