Heavy metal detoxification
Heavy metals are part of the environment, so they’re impossible to avoid entirely. Seriously—you couldn’t even if you tried! You can be exposed to heavy metals through food, medications, water and the places where you live and work. It’s common to have small amounts of some heavy metals in your body, but when those levels build up it can be toxic. Common culprits of heavy metal poisoning include lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. To detox, people look to chelation, a treatment that’s done under the guidance of a practitioner, using a substance to bind to and eliminate the toxin.

Mercury Poisoning: The Undiagnosed Epidemic
It is impossible to avoid exposure to toxic heavy metals in today’s world. This book explains how to diagnose mercury poisoning and shows how to safely remove mercury, lead, arsenic and other toxic metals from your body. The case histories in this book demonstrate how exposure to these heavy metals can lead to allergies, anxiety, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, colitis, autism, ADHD, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. The Environmental Protection Agency’s limit for mercury is an intake of 7 micrograms per day for a 70 kg person. If you have dental amalgams (these silver colored fillings are actually 50% mercury) the World Health Organization estimates you are exposed to 4 to 21 micrograms per day. Over decades this adds up to hundreds of milligrams of the element that toxicologists consider the most toxic non-radioactive element. If you eat 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of tuna, you take in another 35 micrograms, or 5 times the daily limit for the average adult. We are also exposed to mercury through some vaccines and pharmaceutical products. At home there are mercury containing CFL light bulbs and fructose syrup. At the same time, the environment is contaminated with several hundred times the level of lead that our pre-industrial ancestors were exposed to. In animal experiments, mercury increased the toxicity of lead by a factor of 14. It is no wonder that so many people are experiencing chronic health problems. Perhaps mercury or another heavy metal is the source of your health problems.

The Life Stylist Podcast: Winning The War on Parasites, Heavy Metals, and Lyme Disease with Aaron Bigelow & Dr. Deborah Drake
The human body is a petri dish of tiny organisms, some harmful, some critical to health. However, when the bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses get out of balance, it causes a cascade of related dysfunction. When there are too many- or too many of the wrong kind, your nervous system becomes locked into fight or flight mode, and your autonomic nervous system can’t calm down enough to restore balance. To maintain health, become disease free, or fight existing illness, we must find a way to eradicate the harmful organisms safely. Getting rid of them can be a steep, an uphill battle when it comes to things like the intracellular co-infections causing Lyme Disease, which are devious enough to hide in your brain, beyond your blood-brain barrier to protect themselves from traditional medicines, or heavy metals like mercury, which can get ionized and then cling to organs throughout your body. So in this episode, we're talking to two modern healing experts on the front line of the war against parasites, heavy metals, and Lyme disease: Dr. Deborah Drake and previous guest Aaron Bigelow, co-founder of Health Evolution Tech, the self-funded tech startup that developed the AmpCoil device. Anyone who’s heard the show before probably knows that the AmpCoil is one of my most valued biohacking tools (and the one that my friends keep coming over to borrow). By fusing ancient wisdom with cutting edge technology, this PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic fields) device penetrates every cell in your body with beneficial frequencies to clean, restore, rejuvenate, and regenerate your body at the quantum level. Because when we get down to this level, frequencies can shift your core cellular vibration back into balance or neutralize anything that is foreign to the human body to rebuild your sacred temple layer by layer – which is critical when it comes to detoxifying your body from the toxins in our increasingly hazardous environment, and you just can’t get the same effects from a cleanse. Do you or someone you know suffer from a chronic disease or chronic pain? Have you tried everything out there to treat it and come up with nothing? Want to join the movement shifting the medical paradigm from disease care to self-care? Then you need to listen to this episode and learn how vibrations can clean up your body and help it heal itself. Topics Discussed In This Episode: Music and medicine, together at least How vibrating with the divine symphony that every cell in your body creates can restore, rejuvenate, and regenerate Why healing Lyme requires penetrating your brain cells How the AmpCoil builds on Nikola Tesla’s ground-breaking and underappreciated work on energy, frequency, and vibration The mind-boggling number of bugs in your body, outnumbering your cells 10 to 1 How you can have the best meditation of your life Using your voice and biofeedback to pinpoint what your body needs How the moon affects parasites, which can then affect your physical and mental health How you can use specific vibrations to eradicate almost any parasites or heavy metals from your body The fascinating way that nature has been shaped to create plans that serve as medicine for almost any disease How vaccines can damage your body, even as an adult Dealing with mercury, lead, arsenic, and other toxins that build up in your body to cause physical and mental distress Shifting the paradigm from disease care to self-care Wellness for Humanity, the nonprofit that brings this amazing technology to the masses to eradicate Lyme and other autoimmune diseases
Learn True Health: The Root Cause of Illness, How to Heal, Detox Heavy Metals, Environmental Toxins, WiFi, Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Cancer, Autism, Alzheimer's Disease, Autonomic Response Testing with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt
Heavy metals detox is an essential method of healing. There have been numerous cases showing exposure to heavy metals cause various sickness. These usually result in organ damage, reduced mental function, and lower energy levels. That’s why for this episode, I’m so thrilled to have world-renowned expert Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt explain why we need a heavy metals detox. I first heard of Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt from my Naturopathic physician. Apparently, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt not only specializes in heavy metals detox. He is also known internationally to reverse autism, treat Lyme disease, certain types of cancer, autoimmune conditions and managing pain. Early years Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt shares that he grew up in Berlin, Germany, and then moved to a town south of Germany when he was older. It was in Freiburg, Germany where he decided to pursue medical studies. During his last two years of medical school, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was in an experimental course that included acupuncture and homeopathy. Around five to six years later, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt ended up in the United States where he explored alternative medicine. He liked Natural Medicine so much that he remembers going to a lot of chiropractic seminars among other things. Today, he has 30 years of Holistic healing experience and even developed things like pain management and treating heavy metals through a heavy metals detox. Autonomic Response Testing Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has an excellent knowledge of how the autonomic nervous system works and how we can use reflexes better. This led him to develop his methods of testing which he called Autonomic Response Testing. Through this method, changes in muscle tone are used to indicate and gauge the body’s overall health. In fact, it was proven to be very useful in diagnosing the health condition of patients all over the world. However, not just any health practitioner can administer this testing. According to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, one must first complete three levels of certification and pass a written and practical exam. “The Autonomic Response Testing allows me to look deeper into people and know what makes them sick. Solutions come when you know the causes,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. Decline Of Human Condition Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has been studying the decline of the human condition for decades. Together with his team, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt found out that environmental toxicity is indeed very possible. As a result, our body has become the driving force of toxic illness. “Everybody now has some level of chronic illness. It is getting worse every year. Based on my experience, the main cause of chronic illness is cardiovascular disease,” Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt reveals. “Although that decreased over the last few years because people learned that smoking is bad.” He adds, “Then it was taken over by cancer. But now both cardiovascular disease and cancer have been taken over by neurological disease. And the death rate is still rising due to the presence of heavy metals in the brain.” Harmful Heavy Metals Now, what then is the most dangerous heavy metal? According to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, the main danger comes from aluminum. What is more alarming is the fact that aluminum is in most vaccines, food, and drinking water. Apparently, it is also in the air! That’s why doing a heavy metals detox is essential. “Other things like glyphosate in our food chain is also something to watch out for. It is the primary herbicide used in the United States. And the U.S. by far has the highest use of glyphosate,” warns Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt explains that glyphosate is a chelating agent. It binds all the trace minerals in the food. However, if it binds to aluminum, it eventually transports into the bloodstream and goes straight to the brain. Why is it a cause for alarm? Well, for one thing, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says it decreases the minerals that we need. And it puts toxic elements into the spaces where the good minerals should be. Furthermore, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt revealed that aluminum apparently also is the primary cause of Alzheimer’s disease. “In the U.S., when you eat organic food, it has 80% of the same amount of glyphosate as commercially grown food. So no matter how good you try to eat, you can’t protect yourself unless you know what to do,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. “Eating organic food is 20% less toxic, and it’s still a good number. But ideally, you want 90% clean food.” Other Heavy Metals To Avoid Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that other heavy metals to avoid are cadmium, nickel, mercury, and lead. We should likewise be careful in choosing cosmetics and medication because most of the products contain titanium, which is also harmful. Apart from heavy metals, we should also avoid an environment that has a massive amount of electromagnetic radiation. This means, even in our own home, we should regulate the use of wi-fi. “We are born with a functional detox system. And wi-fi disables many of the detox enzymes. It’s like a perfect storm,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. Link Between Autism And Heavy Metals Aside from aluminum, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that mercury toxicity is also something to watch out for. He also explains that many pathogens have an advantage. Apparently, pathogens can live in heavy metal contaminated body compartments where the cells of our immune system become completely dysfunctional. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt likewise revealed that he did a study wherein he found out wherever there is high levels of mercury in the air, the higher rate of autism. Hence, mercury exposure in the air is indeed dangerous, especially for pregnant mothers. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also suggests getting rid of wi-fi routers in the house. He says a pregnant woman does not belong in a wi-fi home. This is because the transfer of toxins and infections happens in pregnancy through the placenta. “The rate of autism doubles every five years. It is strongly linked to metal toxicity and the electromagnetic environment. So pregnant women should be careful,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. “I teach autism prevention and treatment in Europe. In fact, I have a seminar coming up this February.”

Learn True Health: The Toxicity Epidemic, Immune Function, Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Epstein–Barr Virus, Mold, Heavy Metals, Parasites, with Dr. Jay Davidson
Parasites And Lyme Disease http://learntruehealth.com/lyme-disease Parasites live in different areas of our body. Even the healthiest person is prone to getting parasites. In fact, Lyme disease and heavy metal toxicity are correlated to parasites. Much as we can’t completely get rid of parasites, my guest, Dr. Jay Davidson will teach us how to do a parasite cleanse and why it is essential to do so. Sick Wife Dr. Jay Davidson shares that it was his wife who was sick with Lyme disease at the age of 7. She was given medication since she had many other health issues until she was 18 years old. They met in college when they both went to chiropractic school. Dr. Jay Davidson’s wife was still struggling with Lyme disease until their daughter was born while he had massive parasite issues. Medications didn’t do much, so they both sought out natural alternatives. “Lyme disease has several strains. It is a bacteria and loves to drill into tissues and joints. Because it does not necessarily flow into the bloodstream, it is often undetected,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. He adds,”Lyme disease has an interesting defense mechanism. Upon taking antibiotics, it can change forms. When it develops into a cyst, it becomes resistant to the antibiotic. It also has an autoimmune effect.” Causes of Lyme Disease Medical literature lists the cause of Lyme disease is commonly from infected black-legged ticks. The same ticks can also transmit diseases to animals. According to Dr. Jay Davidson, because the ticks are so small, the bites are hardly noticeable. The insect’s saliva has an anesthetic-like substance. That is why one would initially not feel the bite. Curing Lyme Disease Symptoms of Lyme can be anything from flu, aches, and fatigue. Severe symptoms include chronic pain, nerve system problems, and even Bell’s palsy. Other symptoms include inflammation of the eyes and liver. However, Lyme disease can be cured when it is detected early. Dr. Jay Davidson says the key to finding a solution for Lyme disease is understanding how it works and how it affects our body. “You don’t have to manage it. It is just because you’re not peeling down the layers. We are given an immune system that is amazing. All we have to do is to identify all factors,” Dr. Jay Davidson said. He adds, “Our immune system can get over Lyme. Often, it is triggered by emotional stress and mold exposure. Essentially, Lyme is a clinical diagnosis and not a lab test diagnosis.” Parasites And Its Effects Dr. Jay Davidson believes that parasites are such an epidemic. It is because there is not much effort to teach people about parasites. That is why he advises his patients to do a long parasite-type cleanse to empty out the stuff that’s in us. Then remember to do a cleanse once every six months for maintenance. Dr. Jay Davidson further explains that bugs love trauma. And when there’s trauma, the immune system gets suppressed. Hence, there’s a chance that bugs can flourish. Health conditions like pelvic pain, ovarian pain, bladder pain, pain during intercourse and labor pain are just some of the examples where bugs can be prevalent. This is because the immune system diminishes in those areas of surgery. Apparently, bugs go there because it is an easier environment to take over. “Anything you are doing to kill parasites, you’re going to do two things—kill the parasites and release heavy metals,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “So it is also important to have some binders. It is so simple to do but effective.” Heavy Metals Toxicity According to Dr. Jay Davidson, heavy metals toxicity is the direct impact of the parasite. Symptoms include anything from headaches to fatigue. We can get infected through our environment, food and even the water that we drink. The most common heavy metals are lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic, and cadmium. One way of reducing the risk of having heavy metals toxicity is by changing our dietary habits. “If you have heavy metals toxicity, your body is more likely to keep those parasites around. Parasites absorb heavy metals. Mold spores can live inside parasites. If parasites are around, we would never be able to detox heavy metals,” explains Dr. Jay Davidson. BioActive Carbon Supplements The body is pretty much water and carbon. That comprises approximately 96% of molecules in the body. Dr. Jay Davidson adds that when you have carbons to donate, those are building blocks for the cells. So to help get rid of toxins in the body, Dr. Jay Davidson offers two kinds of supplements—BioActive Carbon 1 and BioActive Carbon Plus. Both are available on his website. BioActive Carbon 1 is a supplement for heavy metals and environmental toxins. It is not from activated charcoal and instead, comes from multiple sources of humic acid and fulvic acid. BioActive Carbon Plus, on the other hand, is a systemic biotin binder. This means it can support binding biotoxins like mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are usually associated with ammonia from bacteria, mold, parasites, fungi, yeasts, and viruses. “It binds toxins very well. So if there is an excess of toxicity in the body, it could potentially cause irritation, and you can feel agitated or anxious,” Dr. Jay Davidson said. “Vast symptoms can occur when you start detox too fast. Start with half a capsule twice a day for one week or two. But usually, one capsule twice a day is the recommended dosage.” Formula 1 This supplement is a support for anti-parasite. It contains a combination of three herbs that contain organic neem, organic vidanga, and organic clove. Dr. Jay Davidson suggests that it is advisable to do periodic cleansing every six months. He assures that his supplements are safe because they do not use fillers or additives. It is also GMO-free, gluten-free. “Periodic cleansing keeps the numbers down. The goal isn’t to kill every single bacteria, parasite, and virus in our body because our body is vastly made up of these things,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. Bio Dr. Jay Davidson D.C., PSc.D. completed his undergraduate studies at University Wisconsin La Crosse Majoring in Biology with biomedical concentration and chemistry minor. He received his doctorate of chiropractic degree at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota. Dr. Jay Davidson focuses on functional, natural medicine. He is a husband and a father. He is also a popular speaker and a two-time #1 international best-selling author. He was the host of the Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #1 and Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #2. He was also the host of the Parasite Summit and a co-host of The Detox Project, which had over 50,000 participants. Dr. Jay Davidson is admired for his ability to bridge the gap between the scientific health community and the layperson. His holistic approach encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. He works with his clients to formulate a simple, straightforward plan for restoring health. This has gained him tremendous respect among the Lyme community and his colleagues. Dr. Jay Davidson is an ambitious researcher and clinician in the health world. He and his team of well-trained doctors work with clients virtually around the world!

Learn True Health: Regain Optimal Health in The Face of Mystery Symptoms and Chronic Illness, Lyme Disease, Mold, EBV, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Parasitic Infections and Heavy Metal Toxicity
So many people have Lyme disease. But because the symptoms are not initially apparent, it takes time, and a lot of testing before it gets diagnosed. My guest Scott Forsgren is no stranger to this disease, and he’ll tell us how he survived Lyme disease in this episode. Scott Forsgren is a health coach, podcaster, and health advocate who took years to recover from Lyme disease. He says Lyme disease can be a complex and challenging condition for people. And the more broadly that we cast the net, the more potential we have to optimize health and wellness. Early Signs Scott Forsgren shares that his journey started 22 years ago when he had a tick bite in Northern California in 1996. But he didn’t think anything of it at the time because Lyme disease wasn’t something anyone talked about back then. There was very little information available. “So, I did find for several months, around April 1997, that I had the flu on steroids. It was a tremendous sickness over several days. Those symptoms continued for several more months. And I wasn’t sure if I’d even survive that experience,” recalls Scott Forsgren. Every system of Scott Forsgren’s body was affected. He had vision problems, fevers, joint pain, muscle pain, lots of gastrointestinal problems, cognitive issues regarding brain fog, and memory loss. There were also episodes of numbness and tingling, tapping sensation in his left foot, tremors, internal vibration, muscle twitches. A lot of these conditions can also lead to anxiety and depression and obsessive-compulsive behavior. Finding A Cure From 1997 to 2005, Scott Forsgren saw about 45 different practitioners. The majority suggested that it was all psychological and that he should work with a psychologist or psychiatrist. Scott Forsgren did get a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. He even had a doctor who suggested multiple sclerosis. “I did work with a fantastic medical doctor in Arizona. There were a few years was good. Then in 2004 all of the symptoms came back,” said Scott Forsgren. “I do think Lyme is a worldwide problem. When someone has Lyme, there’s more than just Lyme disease that we need to look at to maximize the potential for our recovery.” Starting Over Scott Forsgren went over to the American College for the Advancement of Medicine and looked for a new functional medicine doctor. He wanted someone that was Holistic and who would look broadly at all the potential issues. He was then referred to an acupuncturist who worked in an outlet mall that was doing computer-based energetic testing. Scott Forsgren recalls that the acupuncturist advised him to have a doctor to test him for borrelia or spirochaete. Furthermore, Scott Forsgren was also encouraged to see if there were some food that might be stressing his body. Turning Into A Believer Scott Forsgren was a skeptic, but when he got himself tested, everything the acupuncturist said was right. That piqued his interest in this realm of energy testing. Over the years, acupuncture became his number one tool to guide my journey back to wellness. “So, one of the important things is to keep an open mind. A lot of things that I would not have been open to 20 years ago when this whole journey started are the things that I ultimately now have found to be the most beneficial,” said Scott Forsgren. After Scott Forsgren got officially diagnosed with Lyme disease, he also started learning from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has a system of energetic testing that Scott Forsgren learned over the years as well as utilized and benefited from. He also did work with Dr. Klinghardt as a patient. And according to Scott Forsgren, that was the best decision he ever made overall in his health journey. Autonomic Response Testing Autonomic Response Testing (APT) is a system of muscle testing. But Scott Forsgren says there is no perfect system. He says we use these systems to uncover information and get us closer to the truth. It’s also a way to understand the things that are stressing the body that may need some support. Scott Forsgren believes some of us have less than optimal detoxification capacity to even end up with the condition that is related to Lyme disease and many others. But they may not manifest symptoms at all. “I do think that one’s detoxification capacity plays a significant role concerning symptoms that we develop. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt either suspects or believes that probably everyone has been exposed to some Lyme related organisms at some point during their lifetime,” Scott Forsgren said. He adds,” I think genes do not tell the entire story, but I think epigenetics does. It influences our genetic expression. We change how our genes express through stress management, nutrition, detoxification and joy in our life.” Scott Forsgren also reveals that most people who are dealing with Lyme disease very type A+ personalities and perfectionists. So, he thinks there are aspects of certain characters that are always in that sympathetic dominant mode. Key Things To Regain Balance First is removing the impact of negative emotions, thought patterns, emotional traumas, and conflicts. Scott Forsgren also advises looking at your environment. Do mold or biotoxin exposures surround you daily? Because that’s one of the critical causes of harmful exposures. Scott Forsgren also advises to look at nutrition and gut health as well as explore detoxification. He says we need to create an environment that is supportive of our healing. “Look for parasites and other microbial overgrowths whether it’s Lyme, co-infections or fungal issues like yeast. Viruses can play a big role as well,” said Scott Forsgren. “Also explore dental contributors like amalgam fillings, root canals or cavities. Rewire the limbic system which is part of the brain that includes the hypothalamus.” Limbic System The limbic system is called the feeling and reacting brain. Scott Forsgren says it is involved in determining our level of safety regarding the things that we might encounter, smell, see, hear and taste. Scott Forsgren explains that you can think of it as the alarm center and anxiety switch. It influences the functioning of our immune system, hormonal system, endocrine system, autonomic nervous system. Ultimately, it is involved in blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and digesting. Any of these things can trigger a limbic system impairment. “If someone doesn’t resonate with having had emotional trauma or conflict that set the stage for their condition, it creates a trauma which we need to process in some way,” said Scott Forsgren. Using Saunas Saunas are good, but Scott Forsgren says some people may not entirely be ready for it. We can mobilize some toxins internally as well. So we have to make sure the routes of elimination are open. “When you use a sauna, you do sweat things out, but at the same time, you can mobilize some toxins internally. A sauna is a good tool, but you need to listen to your body and not force something that maybe they’re not quite ready for,” said Scott Forsgren. “Detoxification is a life-long focus. I do it every day.” He adds, “When we’re recovering from a chronic condition like Lyme disease or mold exposure, detoxification is critical. Microbes like candida and parasites may be present in the body because the body is utilizing them or allowing them to be there to concentrate heavy metals, to help us detoxify. So not all of these organisms are necessarily bad or that we need to get rid of.” Testing For Molds If someone is not recovering from chronic Lyme disease despite doing all the right things, Scott Forsgren advises that they have to explore the mold piece. He urges everyone who is suffering from Lyme disease, making sure that your environment is safe from a mold perspective and an EMF perspective. Because bottom line, you want to create a sanctuary for recovery. “About 25% of the population has a genetic predisposition to illness from water-damaged buildings. And similar to Lyme disease, there is no perfect test for molds, so it’s critical for people to explore,” said Scott Forsgren. Starting with your home, Scott Forsgren says any place where you spend time on a regular basis should be suspect until you explored it. And then if an issue is identified, you may be able to do some remedies like moving to a new environment. Putting in some good air filtration device in the environment is also very helpful. It’s not a solution to a problem, but it’s something that can fix the situation while you are addressing the core issue. ISEAI International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI) is an organization that has come together reasonably recently with doctors that deal with biotoxin illnesses. Some environmental professionals are part of this organization as well. According to Scott Forsgren, the organization is an excellent resource if you dive deeper into learning the cause of illnesses. The ISEAI website states that it is a nonprofit professional medical society whose aim is to raise awareness of the environmental causes of inflammatory illnesses. They also support the recovery of people affected by these illnesses using an integration of clinical practice, education, and research. Better Health Guy Website The website started in 2005 before Scott Forsgren had the Lyme disease diagnosis. Three months after the site launched, Lyme disease became the focus of the site. “The most interesting area for people to check out is the podcast where I interview experts as well as articles he has written over the years. Part of what’s on the blog are notes from different conferences that I have attended over the past ten plus years,” said Scott Forsgren. LymeLight Foundation Another organization that Scott Forsgren wanted to highlight was the LymeLight Foundation. The LymeLight Foundation is an organization that provides treatment grants to children and young adults 25 and under for Lyme disease treatments. “I think it’s critical for people to maintain hope. There are so many things that have improved in our understanding of Lyme disease and chronic conditions over the last several years,” said Scott Forsgren. He adds, “Lyme disease is a messenger for many of us. And the process of going through it is life changing. While it is the biggest challenge that many will ever face, something beautiful often happens as a result of the experience.” Bio Scott Forsgren, FDN-P is a health coach, blogger, podcaster, health writer, and advocate.
