Episode 2 - Consuming Contaminants

This week on The MaxLiving Podcast, hosts Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci discuss consuming contaminants and toxicity in our food and how to avoid it. Do you know what’s really in the food you eat each day? From the fertilizers and pesticides used on our produce to the packaging that our food is stored in, toxins threaten to enter our bodies at all angles. As Dr. Nick discusses, the labels on food are largely marketing, and as such cannot be trusted. “Natural does not mean organic,” as Dr. Nick says, and too often, food labels seek to mislead us with names that ‘sound’ healthy. Even by reading the ingredients in your food, you may still be misled. Take MSG for example. MSG is a substance that may affect our neurons and is used to enhance flavors. It is commonly known that MSG is a common allergen and is likely an unhealthy additive, and the solution of many companies has been to call the ingredient by different names. Alternative names for MSG include ‘yeast extract,’ ‘yeast nutrient,’ ‘soy protein isolate,’ ‘natural flavoring,’ or simply ‘flavoring.’ Similarly, ‘sugar-free’ is a phrase that is commonly thought to mean “healthy,” when the truth might be quite the opposite. Dr. Traci discusses the dangers of sugar replacements such as aspartame, which has been connected to gut health problems, headaches, and even cancer. As the Doctors discuss, we often do not realize that we are making poor decisions for our health or think that there is no way to avoid it. However, “our health should be our number one priority because it’s our number one asset,” (Dr. Nick), and “your health is always a choice,” (Dr. Traci). Dr. Nick ...

Episode 1 - The Toxins in Your Everyday Life: Cleaners and Cosmetics

Episode 1 - The Toxins in Your Everyday Life: Cleaners and Cosmetics

Dr. Nick Wilson is joined by Dr. Traci Gross today as they dive into keeping you and your family healthy from the inside out and keep toxins away from your everyday life. This episode focuses on Toxicity. What is it? Where does it come from? How do you prevent it? Toxins are pervasive, existing in everything from the air we breathe and the food we eat to the cleaning and personal care products we use. According to one estimation, we may come into contact with as many as 2,100,000 toxins every day. Why is this concerning? Because toxins, when introduced to the body, have been observed to cause everything from metabolic changes and endocrine (hormone) interferences to respiratory issues and certain types of cancer. As Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci explain, we are often taught that our health is dependent on our genes, and therefore any health issues we face are based on heredity. However, this podcast asks you to “exit the conventional” and explore alternative methods of understanding and promoting your health. Though we can pass on hereditary traits from one generation to the next, it is largely our lifestyle choices that decide which genes express themselves. That means even if your family is predisposed to heart disease or a type of cancer, you may be able to ‘turn off’ these genes with the right lifestyle choices. One of the biggest ways to positively influence your health? You guessed it: Minimizing Toxins. When toxins are introduced to the body by being breathed in through the lungs, absorbed through the skin, or eaten, they are often stored in our fat cells. Our body is intelligent enough to recognize toxins as dangerous and therefore tries to encase ...
