Have You Heard? Can't-Miss July Podcasts | Vibe with Robyn Openshaw

Each Wednesday, on the Vibe podcast, I interview one of the world’s leading experts in holistic health. Or sometimes, I just chat with you about a subject I think you’ll enjoy.

This month, I talked with Michelle Sands, N.D. about the myth of “bad genes” versus “good genes.”

Dr. Joel Kahn shared some invaluable insights about the nutrition fads and who you can trust when it comes to your diet.

Then we talked microbiome lab tests and genetic tests with yours truly: are they worth your time, or should you save your money?

Here’s a quick roundup of more high vibes you might have missed:

Stop fighting your genes

With the field of genetic research exploding, we hear a lot about “bad genes.” You know, the ones that make you fat, Vibe with Robyn Openshaw, featuring Michelle Sands, NDgive you X, Y, or Z disease, or predict you’ll lose your memory.

But Dr. Michelle Sands, renowned naturopathic physician and hormone expert, refutes the idea that your body made a mistake or gave you “bad genes.” In this episode, she’s talking about accepting and embracing your genetic code to grow, adapt, and really thrive.

“A lot of people feel like they got dealt a bad hand, like they have bad genes. That’s a very limited view of the human body. I prefer to have a limitless view of our human potential: the body makes no mistakes. It’s like brown hair versus red hair. There’s not a bad gene. Just a different one.”

Did you know that there are more than 10,000 published studies that show, in aggregate, that a plant-based diet is Vibe with Robyn Openshaw, featuring Joel Kahn MDideal, for good health and nutrition?

So then what’s up with the constant arguing among keto evangelists, the “grain brainers” and the “carnivores?” In this episode, Dr. Joel Kahn, “America’s Holistic Heart Doctor,” is here to cut through the confusion and shed a little light on why we’re all still arguing about nutrition as if science doesn’t know the truth.

“The quick fix always sounds so attractive. The good-looking six-pack or bikini, the ‘I got there quicker than you’ll get there,’ it’s the rabbit and the tortoise again. The tortoise is going to win, just like in the fable, but it’s not as sexy. It’s not as attractive.”

Should you get your microbiome tested? Well …

Let’s just say something smells a little rotten on this one.  Vibe with Robyn Openshaw

In this episode, we’re putting on our critical thinking caps and delving into whether microbiome testing (where you mail your poop into a lab) is all it’s cracked up to be, or whether it’s, well, a load of crap.

“It’s incredibly premature in 2019, or anytime soon really, to think we have enough information about our gut bacteria that we can use it to predict many, if any, diseases.”

What 23andMe won’t tell you about genetic testing

Genetic testing is all the rage, from people who want to know their risk of disease to true crime aficionados. Vibe with Robyn Openshaw | Are Genetic Tests Worth Your Money?

But this new technology comes at a cost (both literally and figuratively). Between overdiagnosis, dubious quality, and serious conflicts of interest with big pharma, there are a few things you should consider before you jump on the bandwagon.

“Consider what it means for big Pharma companies to own your genetic code. While on the surface there’s nothing wrong with using DNA to develop medicines, this medicine is then sold back to the public at exorbitant rates.”
