Dairy: Is it Lactose or Casein Intolerance?

food sensitivities Aug 27, 2020

Join me in this video where I debunk lactose intolerance + talk about a protein that's found in dairy products, called "casein"!

Big Question: Why do you tolerate some forms of dairy better than others?? 

Simple Answer: Casein, the protein found in dairy.

There's different types of casein. Some types are more inflammatory, for example those in cow's milk, whiles others are less, such as those in goat or sheep dairy.

This is why you don't get bloated when you have some goat cheese but you do when you have cheese made from cow's milk.

food sensitivities Jul 16, 2020

Join me in this video to learn about the little-known connection between gluten intolerance and chronic yeast infections   

SECRET GLUTEN TIP #1: The mouth is the start of your digestion and has its own microbiome! Canker sores are a little-known sign of gluten intolerance.

Your toothpaste can be a hidden source of gluten exposure. 

SECRET GLUTEN TIP #2: What's actually in soy sauce?! ...

Soy Sauce = soybeans, wheat, water, salt and often fermenting agents like yeast .

A gluten-free alternative is Tamari or Coconut Aminos.
