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.

William Shaw, PhD, is the founder of The Great Plains Laboratory and certified in the fields of clinical chemistry and toxicology. In this interview with Ann Louise, Dr. Shaw tackles the subject of oxalates – the very tiny molecules that bind minerals like calcium and form crystals. Oxalates not only can cause kidney stones but may also be liable for a wide variety of other health related issues such as auto-immunity, inflammation, mitochondrial dysfunction, connective tissue strength, poor gut function and urinary tract problems. Tune in as Ann Louise and Dr. Shaw discuss the major sources of oxalates, which organs in the body can be harmed by them, what nutritional steps and supplements can be taken to reduce oxalates as well as what benefits to health are conferred by these molecules. Fascinating!
