Dr. Megan Saunders

In this episode Dr. Megan Saunders returns to do some myth-busting.  If you’re wondering just exactly what is going on with the ever-present cholesterol debate, tune in and find out the medical facts regarding cholesterol that you may not have heard before. She also talks about prescription pain medications, their side effects, and the herbal alternatives that you might consider.

As a naturopath, Dr. Megan spends considerable time with each patient, learning about their diet and exercise habits, emotional state and family history. With this information she can target the underlying factors that are causing the symptoms and give her patients the appropriate treatment. Compare this with a doctor who spends 10 minutes with you before prescribing a drug.  She likes to work with other health care providers, benefitting from their individual expertise, all in order to give her patients the best, most comprehensive care.

Dr. Megan talks about the contents of her family’s natural first aid kit, a reason in itself to listen to this episode!  You will learn about natural treatments for digestive complaints, colds, skin wounds, infections and much more.  And lastly, what would she take from a supplement store to aid her on a desert island? A strong anti-microbial agent, a multivitamin, Berberine, and (for a chuckle) a lifetime supply of raw cacao.

Here’s What You’ll Discover:

There has been no decrease in cardiovascular disease with the use of statin drugs.

You can take turmeric for pain without having the side effects caused when you take ibuprofen

If you want to stop that cold from coming on, take elderberry extract

There is a 7 minute 25 point physical exam that will reveal a lot about your state of health

Health AH-HA Moment:

If you don’t like your current doctor, find another doctor.  You decide—you’re in charge.

Your Challenge:

List the prescription drugs you are taking, or have taken, and discover the safe, natural alternatives that could possibly replace them.

Health AH-HA Moment:

Your body will make the wisest decision it can in every moment.  It will give louder and louder messages till you pay attention.

Your Challenge:

Give yourself a health/energy grade from 1 – 10

Drink 1/3 of your body weight in ounces of water every day.  If you weigh 150 lbs, drink 50 ounces of water. Add another 8 ozs for every cup of coffee, glass of wine, juice, soda, etc.  Follow this routine for 2 weeks, and then give yourself a new grade as to how you feel.  Dr. Molly predicts a marked improvement!
