88: Death Race

What is a protest? What goes into the organization of a protest? Who gets involved? What are the laws? All of these questions, and many more were definitely on my list for guest, Ellen Ericksen. Ellen has been vegan for a really long time, and has been fighting for animals since she can remember. She's extremely knowledgable of both sides of the law; the protester's side and the cruelty-promoting business' side. Ellen has earned a reputation for causing unethical businesses to shut down, but it has all come from a place of love for the animals!

With San Diego being the home of the deathly Del Mar Races, the Del Mar Fair, Sea World and once even a slaughterhouse, Ellen (unfortunately) has no shortage of people to talk to, regarding their financial contributions that encourage the prosperity of these businesses. Many of us know why Sea World has a bad reputation, but when Ellen told me what goes on at the Del Mar Fair, I was shocked!

87: Dz Vegan Kid Athletes

87: Dz Vegan Kid Athletes

Dz Vegan Kid Athletes are three sisters, Danaé, 14 years old, Danya 8 years old & Danielle 4 years old. They lead very active lifestyles; Danaé dances six days a week, Danya does gymnastics six days a week, Danielle does rhythmic gymnastics three days a week and dances once a week.

Danya was born vegan but at the age of four and a half, had tasted meat for the first time. She ate meat on and off but 1 year later, she stopped eating chicken and fish completely after learning how the animals were treated and killed.

Danaé was diagnosed with fibromyalgia eighteen months ago and was on four different medications to control her pain. She missed a lot of dance practices because of this. She was inspired by her Mom (who also has auto immune disease, endometriosis, fibromyalgia, thyroid disease and asthma) to go 100% vegan, after seeing her get off her medications and become much healthier! Danaé is now off her daily medication, drinks lots of raw green juices with turmeric to help reduce inflammation.

Danielle was born ten weeks premature and weighed just over 3 pounds. The doctors told her Mom that if she made it, she'd have life-long lung problems since she previously needed a ventilator to breathe. Doctors also said that she would have problems with her gut and not be able to digest foods properly which would require her to be on medication the rest of her life.

These girls are on a mission to share with others simple, fun ways to stay fit, eat healthy and be kind to the animals! They want to let the world know that growing up vegan rocks!

86: What’s the Underlying Issue?

86: What's the Underlying Issue?

Remember Jim Chialtas from Episode 75? If you haven't heard it yet, I recommend you check it out! Today, we welcome back Jim to dive a little deeper into Functional Blood Chemistry, as well as review some of my personal blood and saliva tests that may have revealed something I would've never expected. After my last podcast with Jim, I had a consultation with him and mentioned that one of my biggest physical set-backs was EXTREME bloating combined with eczema.

I don't like to abuse the word "suffering", but I'm telling you; most days I would look like I was 4 months pregnant, and I would scratch my legs so bad in my sleep, I'd wake up with wounds. I don't eat meat, don't eat dairy, I've recently cut out gluten and I eat mostly whole foods. I was really confused as to what it could be.

The blood test showed I was low in iron, but there were other results that I didn't quite understand. The funny thing is, I track my macro and micronutrients, and get PLENTY of iron in my diet! So, what's the underlying issue? My first thought was that I may have developed Celiac, which could be preventing my intestines from absorbing the iron. So, I started eliminating gluten. But, it seems I may have been wrong!

Curious what may have happened? I think you may be as surprised as I was!

85: Spoiled Vegans

85: Spoiled Vegans

Todd Anderson, Brandy Espi and Cody Blake make up a group of influencers called "Spoiled Vegans". They created the group to show others that not all vegans are the same! Don't get them wrong, the name "spoiled" isn't coming from a pretentious, "better than others" attitude, it comes from the humility they've achieved realizing how spoiled they are to be in San Diego and have so many great vegan resources!
