Can a plant heavy diet be toxic? The surprising answer is YES according to Sally Norton who has uncovered oxalates, those culprits in plants which are often found lurking within organic plant heavy diets. Join Ann Louise Gittleman, the First Lady of Nutrition, as she delves into a thought-provoking conversation with Sally Norton, a distinguished educator, speaker, and health consultant. After suffering for decades from chronic health problems, Sally discovered that the offenders that plagued her were chemical toxins called oxalates within her “healthy,” organic plant-based regimen. Ann Louise and Sally waste no time in diving into a fascinating discussion as to how the foods you’re eating to get healthy might just be making you sick! According to Norton, if you’re eating a healthy diet and you’re still dealing with fatigue, inflammation, anxiety, recurrent injuries, or chronic pain, the problem could be your spinach, almonds, sweet potatoes, and other trusted plant foods. And your key to vibrant health may be quitting these so-called superfoods that are filled with oxalates. In her 2023 blockbuster book, “Toxic Superfoods: How Oxalate Overload Is Making You Sick–and How to Get Better” Norton presents a complete, research-backed program to safely reverse your oxalate load and comprehensive charts and resources on foods to avoid and better alternatives. As Ann Louise and Sally conclude, the popular dictum to “eat more plants” can be misleading. “Toxic Superfoods” gives health-seekers a chance for improved energy, optimum brain performance, graceful aging, and true relief from chronic pain.
