When Teeth and Feet Come First – Episode 142: Ron Hruska
It’s not every day that Ann Louise has the privilege of interviewing a brilliant and humble healer like Ron Hruska. Ron is the founder of the internationally acclaimed Postural Restoration Institute. The institute was established over two decades ago to investigate and explain the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles. Ron’s mission is based on the development of an innovative treatment that addresses the primary contributions of poor posture as a result of maladaptation by one or multiple tissues within the human movement system. Join Ann Louise and Ron as they explore topics such as why everything you know about ‘good posture’ is wrong and how to correct it; the different dynamics of the right and left sides of our body; how major sensory points like our feet and even our teeth profoundly impact our posture; the secrets of breathing that relieve stress and boost energy; how improper shoe wear can quickly defeat any Physical Therapy program; and much more!

Shielded Healing to Zap-Proof Your Home – Episode 141: Brian Hoyer
Over ten years ago, pioneering nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman wrote a groundbreaking book called “Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn’t Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution.” At that time, she had her own home mitigated for EMFs and environmental toxins. She recently decided to invite Brian Hoyer, a leading EMF mitigation specialist, to update and access any new findings. Interestingly enough, Brian’s findings were jaw dropping for Ann Louise and family. While the house was fairly clean environmentally, the only issue that was a red flag was the bedroom window where there were strong EMF emissions from a radio tower across the river where Ann Louise’s house is built. The EMF emissions registered extremely hazardous on Brian’s scale and were known to incite oxidative stress, issues with neurotransmitters, and blood brain barrier leaks. Needless to say, with Ann Louise’s history of a concussion and a traumatic brain injury, this was a huge aha moment! Join Ann Louise and Brian Hoyer as they delve into a fascinating discussion, covering topics such as EMF shielding and its importance, the negative effects of EMF exposure, the need for a healing environment, dealing with ‘dirty electricity’, controlling EMF exposure, and most crucially, how to shield oneself while sleeping. After extensively testing homes for EMF around the country, Brian established Shielded Healing in 2017. The aim of his team is to help modern society recreate electromagnetic environments that closely resemble historic human habitats. Brian works closely with functional medicine doctors, hospitals, and clinics worldwide, providing EMF shielding solutions and building protocols to reduce patient EMF exposure.

Intermittent Fasting for Females – Episode 140: Laurie Lewis
The First Lady of Nutrition welcomes intermittent fasting coach and author, Laurie Lewis. For Laurie, menopause dealt a crushing blow — brain fog, lack of balance, memory loss, and the sudden gain of 50 pounds of stubborn hormonal fat. She tried everything she knew to feel better, and the methods that worked in the past made no difference. After four years of struggle, Laurie stumbled upon intermittent fasting and started fasting that very same day. The menopausal fog lifted in less than one week, she had more energy and felt more “like herself,” and lost 51 pounds in 15 months which she has kept it off for years! Join Ann Louise and Laurie Lewis as they discuss how intermittent fasting, or time restricted eating, is simply a pattern of eating and not eating, and how taking a conscious pause from eating allows the body a much-needed healing rest for the gut, organs, brain, blood, and hormones. It’s the digestive, hormonal, and metabolic rest our bodies require and the opportunity for our hormones to balance and function optimally. According to Lewis, the good news is that whether you’re a woman in your 40s, 50s, 60s, or beyond, intermittent fasting can make a huge difference not just for weight loss, but for the autophagy (deep cellular repair), gut health benefits, and mental clarity that comes with time restricted eating.

The First Lady of Nutrition welcomes Dr. Jerry Tennant, a true renaissance man!

Ann Louise and her guest waste no time in diving into Dr. Tennant’s ‘Healing is Voltage” ™ landmark series of books. According to Dr. Tennant, the body is constantly wearing itself out and many people cannot heal their chronic illnesses because they never investigate their electromagnetic levels. Through endless research, Dr. Tennant has discovered that chronic disease occurs when the body is low in voltage, lacks proper nutrition, and thus cannot promote healing. The issues that contribute to low voltage include dental infections, toxins, scars, thyroid imbalances, and emotions. Join Ann Louise and this world leader in integrative and functional medicine as they engage in a fascinating discussion about Dr. Tennant’s simple protocols to reset your body’s “battery system” and add proper voltage back into your cells.

Unlocking The Autoimmune Epidemic – Episode 134: Dr. Michael Karlfeldt
Lately, it seems that autoimmune disorders have eclipsed heart disease, cancer, and diabetes in America today.

Ann Louise and celebrated naturopath Dr. Michael Karlfeldt unpack the roles of mold, chemicals, heavy metals, viruses, diet, stress, and lifestyle – and how they contribute to the development of autoimmune disease.
