    A Mind of Your Own outlines a new paradigm of depression as a lifestyle crisis.

  • Testing for Adrenal Fatigue

    Testing for Adrenal Fatigue

    08/11/2019 Duration: 08min

    Testing for Adrenal Fatigue correctly requires using a combination of lab testing and feedback from the patient (questionnaires can also play a useful role). The major lab test used to diagnose Adrenal Fatigue is, as you might have guessed, the cortisol test. But there is more than one type of cortisol testing, and the correct interpretation of results is also important. Your doctor may order a saliva, blood or urine test to measure your cortisol. These days it is generally accepted that saliva cortisol testing is the most accurate, as it gives a better estimate of the cortisol levels within your cells, where the hormone reactions are actually taking place. Remember that it is important to be well-hydrated before you do your saliva test – dehydration can skew the results. Here’s another important thing to know about cortisol testing. Taking a single measurement, or even a 24-hour average, is not enough. The best cortisol tests take 4 individual samples at various points of the day and then map your cortisol l

  • Sugar Sensitivity and Cravings

    Sugar Sensitivity and Cravings

    04/11/2019 Duration: 17min

    If sugar were put on the market for the first time today, it would be difficult to get it past the FDA. Eating sweets can give us a temporary emotional boost, which leads to a craving for still more sweets. Many people who suffer from sugar sensitivity don't even know it; they continue to consume large quantities of sweets, breads, pasta or alcohol. These foods can trigger feelings of exhaustion and low self-esteem, yet their biochemical impact makes sugar-sensitive people crave them even more. This vicious cycle can continue for years, leaving sufferers overweight, fatigued and depressed. Using the self -test from the book Potatoes Not Prozac by Dr. Kathleen Des Maisons, Dr Karen gives you the tool to determine your sugar sensitivity and guides you on the path to no longer living in secret shame because you will understand these behaviors are part of addiction.

    Have you heard about Nutrigenomics?

    09/10/2018 Duration: 14min

    Have you heard about Nutrigenomics? In this episode of Dr Karen Health Talks, I explain how we are not victims of our genes. In fact with the human genome project showing that humans have the same number of genes as worms, there is a whole new understanding of the cause of human variation. I use the specific example of Alzheimer’s Disease and the ApoE4 SNP and how this marker is more likely to be expressed with a diet high in saturated fat and sugar.

  • Dr Karen Health Talks Podcast - How to Make Fermented Foods 101

    Dr Karen Health Talks Podcast - How to Make Fermented Foods 101

    28/07/2017 Duration: 09min

    Fermented foods have a lot of health benefits. They are rich in enzymes, which help speed up digestion and absorption in our system. They are also rich in good bacteria, specifically lactobacillus acidophilus, which is an extremely beneficial flora found in the gut. A study published in the International Journal of Obesity even found that some types of probiotics promoted weight loss. NOTE - Most fermented foods you can buy in supermarket jars or cans have been pasteurized and cooked at high heat, killing any friendly bacteria. You'll have to make your own pickles or sauerkraut to retain those products' bacterial benefits. (If you take basic precautions in fermenting your own, there's little risk.)
