Anyone who spends time in the outdoors, in backyards, in the woods, fields and even urban cities should be concerned about Lyme disease.

Why?

Because according to many reports, Lyme disease caused by ticks, increasingly threaten the health of people all over the world.

Most noteworthy, is over the past two decades, seven new tick-borne germs that can cause illness have been identified.

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the number of reported cases of Lyme disease in the United States, has tripled.

The states with highest incidence of this disease is #1 Maine, followed by Vermont, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maryland, West Virginia, New York, and Virginia.

Tick-borne and mosquito diseases are also on the rise in other states like Florida. They have seen a 77% increase in tick-borne disease infections.

But, it’s not just in the United States.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, say ticks are abundant in woodlands all across Europe from early spring to late autumn.

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is the most common tick-borne disease in Europe along with Lyme borreliosis.

Canada has also seen a higher risk of acquiring Lyme disease. Some patients are reporting that doctors in Canada are not aware of how prevalent it is, making it difficult to diagnose early.

Lyme disease has spread to Asia and around the world.

According to Popular Science, Lyme disease is thriving because warmer temperatures are making cold places suitable habitats for ticks.

One study predicts the incidence of this tick-borne disease will rise around 21% by mid-century because of climate change. And higher temperatures spur ticks to venture farther in search of hosts like deer, squirrels, and mice.

Today’s podcast is devoted to teaching you the symptoms and treatment of Lyme disease, and how to protect yourself.

Thank you so much for being here!

Thanks to Clean Lean Protein by Nuzest for sponsoring today’s podcast. Here is a link to their special offer for the Ordinary Vegan community.

Most people don't think about liver health to increase metabolism, but the liver is responsible for helping metabolize fat, produce bile and clean toxins. All of these functions contribute to converting food into energy.

In fat metabolism the liver cells break down fats and produces energy. It also helps insure that the level of sugar in your blood (aka blood glucose) stays constant. 

Bile is primarily well-known as a digestive secretion that helps to digest fats. Bile also breaks down nutrients from food to produce energy and converts inactive Thyroid Hormone (T4) to active T3 that the cells can use. 

And when harmful toxins and substances enter your bloodstream, your liver acts fast to detoxify and destroy them. 

So keeping your liver healthy is crucial for overall health.

Cleansing your liver can also affect your pancreas and help produce normal levels of insulin. You could also see improved blood pressure and better cholesterol numbers. 

In today’s podcast, we discuss 10 ways to cleanse your liver naturally to increase metabolism. 

I am going to begin this 2-3 week liver cleanse to increase metabolism on June 3. Hope you can join me. Please join our health and wellness community on Facebook to track our progress.

Whether you're giving up animal products for your health, animal rights or climate change, you may need assistance. Today we discuss some tried and tested vegan tips to help this process go more smoothly.

Here are a few problems we explore.

Eating out or not knowing what to feed your non-vegan family can be challenging. These vegan tips should help you survive as a vegan in a multi-vore household.

Leading a busy lifestyle, eating out and trying to find quick plant-based options are also addressed. As more and more fast food restaurants offer vegan selections, the simpler it becomes. Learn your options in today's podcast.

Additionally, it is not always going to be easy, but remember that “straying maps the path.” From the inspiring wisdom of Rumi's poem “The Sight Of A Soul.”

My interpretation of that poem is until we stray from the path we will never know what is waiting for us.

Furthermore, change is scary. But Rumi also says “when you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you.” And big changes, like eating plant-based, bring big positive consequences!

I hope today's vegan tips help you begin or continue on your path towards veganism.

Other topics discussed today include the April 2019 supplement study from researchers from Tuft's University. You can learn more here.

Vegan Tips Recipe of The Day

Ordinary Vegan's recipe of the day is Marinated Seitan Sandwich with Spicy Red Cabbage Slaw. We also discussed Ordinary Vegan's Beef Stew and Vegan Gravy.

Thanks to our sponsor, Clean Lean Protein from Nuzest. To order your special clean lean protein starter pack with FREE SHIPPING, go to Nuzest.us/ov  today.

Additionally, I am devoted to keeping you healthy, so I began creating my own line of CBD oil made from hemp to assist you.

CBD oil is a natural compound found in the hemp plant.

Despite its close relation (cousin) to psychoactive cannabis, hemp and hemp-derived products don’t make you high.

In December 2018, The Farm Bill was passed making hemp and CBD oil from hemp federally legal.

I choose to provide CBD oil to our community because all CBD is not created equal and many companies import their CBD from China. Those oils can contain contaminants, pesticides and heavy metals.  I wanted to make sure you received the safest and most reliable Vegan CBD oil on the market.

Just go to OrdinaryVegan.net to order.

Helping people naturally is what CBD is all about, and I hope it can help you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at questions@ordinaryvegan.net or visit our FAQ page.

Fifty-years-ago, the sugar industry funded research that downplayed the risks of sugar and highlighted the hazards of fat. Forty-years-ago, high fructose corn syrup  (HFCS) started trickling into our food supply. Most people didn't know what HFCS was. So began the confusion about what is sugar and what sugars are healthy.

When I decided to tackle the subject of sugar, one of the most surprising statistics I found out is that 99% of  toddlers ages 12 to 18 months are downing 5-7 teaspoons of added sugar a day.  Not only that, the average sugar consumption for adults is 25 teaspoons a day. Well over the recommended amounts. 

Since the discovery of high fructose corn syrup, the American consumption of fructose jumped from 37 grams per day in the 1970s to a record high of 62 grams per day in 2000.

So where is all this added sugar coming from? Here is an example. A 20 oz soft drink contains about 16 teaspoons of high fructose corn syrup, and an energy drink can hold over 50 grams of high fructose corn syrup. Salad dressings, ketchup, fruit drinks and even bread can have a large amounts of sugar. And most people have no idea they are consuming this much-added sugar.

In today’s podcast, we break down the truth about sugar, and how it impacts our health. We also examine natural sugars and their role in a healthy diet.

We also discuss why sugar may not be vegan due to its questionable infiltration.

It's no secret that human activity is changing the climate.  For many, how to protect the environment can seem like a daunting task.

In October 2018, the United Nations top climate science panel gathered in South Korea to prepare a new report on climate change. Their report stated the starkest warnings to date of the consequences of climate change.

They predicted if significant steps were not taken, global warming could create extreme heat, drought, floods, poverty, and trillions of dollars in debt.

Not long after, in December 2018, The EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet and Health was released. This commission brings together more than 30 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy, sustainable diet.

Their findings were equally as dire. The report revealed that if we don't make a radical change in diet and food production, we could be facing catastrophic damage to our planet.

The good news is you don't have to feel helpless about the future of the planet. Because how to protect the environment begins with you. And there are positive steps we can do to tackle climate change right now.

Today's podcast focuses on unexpected ways you can help.

Thanks for listening and always remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle because how to protect the environment begins with you.

Positive emotions have been linked with better health, longer life,  and a greater sense of well being. 

If you are reading this, then you already are seeking to live a healthier lifestyle,  And a healthy lifestyle brings longevity.  We talk so much about living longer but do we ask ourselves enough “why do we want to live longer?”

What is our sense of purpose that gets us up every day and brings us pure joy? 

Today, we live in a world we can never escape. Our phones are continually pinging us with bad news. Social media is dividing us more than connecting us. 

A growing body of evidence shows that this constant barrage of news and sharing on social media can lead to depression and increased feelings of inadequacy. 

Many studies have shown that people who are unhappy are three to ten times more likely to get sick and die prematurely compared to those who have a stronger sense of connection, joy, and community.

Today we explore the idea of giving up everything that doesn’t bring us joy. We also discuss what is joy and how we can bring more joy into our lives.

Each year, over 50 million Americans experience various types of allergies.

Many of these allergic conditions are on the rise. 

In medicine, the hygiene hypothesis states a lack of early childhood exposure to germs suppresses the natural development of the immune system. 

In other words, living conditions in much of the world might be too clean and being exposed to germs as a child may protect us from allergies. 

An additional theory is that the increased antibiotic use parallels the rise in allergies and asthma. 

But other research suggests that the rising prevalence of allergies are the result of many factors.

Bottom line, no one really knows the why, but there are ways we can protect ourselves. 

Today we will explore the most common allergy causes, symptoms, and prevention. 

Discover what allergen triggers could be lurking in your home. Learn the difference between cold and allergy symptoms.  Find out some plant-based substitutions for common food allergies. 

Last but not least, I will reveal three foods that can help relieve your allergies.

Hope you enjoy today’s podcast.

You may think dream interpretation is an unusual subject for a health and wellness podcast, but dreaming is an important function for our emotional health. Dreams are often the way the brain solves problems and deals with our concerns.

Furthermore, some psychologists think that dreams are nothing more than random brain activity. While others like Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung believe that dreams can reveal a person's deepest unconscious wishes and desire.

In particular, Freud's work on dreams explored the possibility of universal symbols in dreams. However, he was cautious about symbols and believed that symbols are more personal rather than universal. In other words, no one dream interpretation fits all.

And why do the same dreams reoccur? Why do you keep dreaming of missing a plane or having to cram for a college exam after you graduated from college? Some people even dream that they are being murdered or murdering someone else.

Above all,  lengthy, distressful, or violent nightmares can disrupt our sleep and as we all know rest is essential to human health.

Today, we learn how to analyze our dreams and why it is important with dream expert, Tricia Kelly.

Tricia Kelly teaches an inspirational blend of Western and Eastern wisdom. Her thirty-eight years of teaching are enhanced with perspectives gained from traveling the world. She includes in her work the dream symbolism and wisdom of psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Carl Jung and Edward Edinger.

Tricia's philosophy is that dreams are simply a doorway into our deeper selves, and teach us who we are and how we are made.

Tricia has an office in Costa Mesa, California. She is currently traveling and will begin meeting new clients in February 2019. You can reach her at dreamdrop676@gmail.com.

The amount of faux meats and processed vegan-friendly products has exploded in the past two years.

Subsequently, if you are a full-time or part-time vegan who regularly consumes processed vegan foods, these foods can be as unhealthy as animal products.

Bottom line, vegan lifestyles aren’t always healthier if you don’t fill your plate with a balance of whole vegan foods.

In today’s podcast, I discuss the 10 ten vegan foods you should include in your diet every day.

So even if you are already on a vegan diet, sometimes you need to get back to the basics and eat well-planned vegan foods to make sure you don’t miss out on essential nutrients.

Once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature.

In brief, no matter where you are on your vegan journey, eating a whole-food, plant-based diet centered on whole, unrefined vegan foods, will drastically improve your health and you will feel better than you have ever felt.

I also hope you join us on the 21-day Healthy Vegan Eating Challenge.

When I saw that September was National Suicide month, a month devoted to inform and engage the general public about suicide prevention, I finally got the courage to do a podcast about this subject. 

Suicide is a national health crisis and a serious medical condition like cancer or heart disease, and there should be no stigma attached to suicidal thoughts.

Anyone could be struggling and what I hope to accomplish in this podcast is how to recognize the signs and what you can do to help. 

If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts yourself, there are immediate confidential options to help you cope and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Just call 1-800-273-8255 in the United States. Or text HOME to 741741. 

You can also seek out a mental health professional at Mental Health America. 

There are also over 30 countries known to have national suicide prevention services and strategies. 

Thanks for joining me today. Suicide is a difficult conversation to initiate, but with better education and understanding, we can all help each other.

Do you often feel the pain of others? Do you feel drained after being around certain people for too long? Do you find yourself caring for or taking care of others more than yourself sometimes? Do you feel feelings deeper, harder, and longer than others. Are you sensitive to smells, crowds or excessive talking. Do you have a strong connection to nature or the animal kingdom? If so, you may be an empath.

The trademark of an empath is that they feel and absorb other people's emotions and/or physical symptoms because of their high sensitivities.

Empaths are often targeted by emotional vampires due to the strength of the empath's emotions and vibrant energy.

So being an empath can be exhausting, especially if you don't understand this characteristic of yourself, and don't know how to protect yourself.

In today's podcast, we will explore the traits of an empath with Dr. Judith Orloff, the leading voice in the field of empaths, psychiatry, and intuitive development.

Dr. Orloff is the author of the best selling Book "The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People." In the book she educates readers about empaths, and offers strategies for empaths to protect themselves.

Hope you enjoy today's podcast. If you are just getting started on a plant-based diet, I recommend listening to Podcast #1: Getting Started On A Vegan Diet and Podcast #10: How To Achieve Optimal Health On A Plant-Based Diet.

To learn more about Dr. Judith Orloff and take a free empath self-assessment, visit www.DrJudithOrloff.com.

You can purchase Dr. Orloff's best selling book, The Empaths Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People" on Amazon. Judith also has other best selling books including "Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life".

Dr. Orloff is also doing empath workshops and book signings all over the country including Kansas City, New York City, Los Angeles and Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by the Ordinary Vegan line of CBD products made from agricultural hemp.

Vegan CBD Oil from hemp is a natural plant food that is taking the wellness world by storm for its promising ability to help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, migraines, arthritis ,fibromyalgia, addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder and chronic pain.

When I began hearing the testimonials from so many of you in the Ordinary Vegan community, I was skeptical.  But after two years of research, I  came to the decision that CBD Oil is helping people get off medication for chronic pain or anxiety.

And there are so many CBD brands out there that are not safe or effective so I made a decision that it was essential to provide a safe, reliable vegan CBD oil from hemp for our health and wellness community.

You can find my CBD Oil from Hemp on my website ordinaryvegan.net and don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions at questions@ordinaryvegan.net.

Cooking with plants is a lifestyle that can be enjoyed full or part-time. Even adding two or three plant-based meals to your diet every week can have significant health benefits.

A recent study published in the Journal of The American Heart Association revealed that swapping one or two servings of animal protein for plant protein could lead to a reduction in three main cholesterol markers for cardiovascular disease. 

Another study suggests that eating only one cup of leafy greens a day could slow the rate of memory decline in older adults. 

Today's podcast is devoted to getting back to the basics of cooking with plants. It doesn't have to be complicated. The methods of cooking that we discuss today provide maximum nutrition and satiate without a lot of time or energy. The kind of nutrition that makes you want to run up a mountain and not take a nap.

So please join me today and learn how to create delicious nutritious one-pot meals and easy steps to building a vegan burger. 

You can find today's recipes, One Pot Vegan Chickpea Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Stew & Vegan Black Bean Burger here.

I hope you enjoyed today's podcast. My number one goal is to keep you as healthy as possible.

I now advocate and promote CBD Oil from Hemp because it has shown to have a remarkable ability to help people with chronic pain and anxiety disorders. I base this on the hundreds of testimonials I have received. It took me two years, but I finally found a CBD oil to sell that is safe, effective, third-party tested, seed to shelf, environmentally friendly CO2 extraction and vegan of course. Unfortunately, most of the CBD on the market is not high quality.You can now purchase my vegan Plant-Based CBD Oil made from Hemp from me here. Hope it can help you!

Health and wellness are not merely about diet and exercise, but also about limiting our exposure to toxic chemicals.

For the past two decades, toxic chemicals have been added to everything from make-up, household cleaning supplies, clothing, pots, pans, building materials, mattresses, and even perfume. And scientific studies are now showing us that chemicals found in a wide array of household goods are more toxic than we thought.

Today's podcast is devoted to unveiling the most common toxic chemicals that could unknowingly be harming your health and how to avoid them.

We will also discuss chemical toxicants that can induce autoimmune disease and the potential for environmental substances to worsen an autoimmune condition.

Toxic Chemicals cited:

Phthalates

Perchloroethylene (PERC)

Triclosan

Asbestos

"The Starch Solution is a diet based on starch. Yes, let me say that again, it is a diet based on starch"
                             --Dr. John McDougall

“Dr. John McDougall is the dean of medical practitioners in nutrition-centered medicine- because of his incredible accomplishments, knowledge, and courage to stand up for what he believes. Thousands of his patients know him as an icon. When you read this book, you will too.”
— T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., coauthor of The China Study

These days, you mainly hear people recommending reducing carbs, particularly starchy carbohydrates. But Dr. John McDougall has experienced tremendous success with his chronically ill patients by emphasizing a vegan starch based diet.

If you have never heard of Dr. John McDougall, he has been a pioneer in the plant-based wellness world for many years.

As far back as the 1970s, Dr. McDougall began developing the starch based diet.

It all began when he was practicing medicine on a sugar plantation in Hawaii. He observed the declining health of families who traded their starch based diet from their native Asian countries and began eating a typical Western diet of red meat, oils, and processed foods.

The result was the Asian immigrants began to experience serious Western diseases like type-2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease which were unheard of in their native countries.

So, Dr. McDougall began treating his patients with whole plant-based foods that were free of meat, fish, eggs, dairy, and oil. The diet was approximately 80% percent complex carbohydrates, 12 percent protein, and 8 percent fat. Spices and small amounts of salt and sugar were added for flavor.

What Dr. McDougall discovered is that a plant-based starch based diet helped his patients lose weight and reverse their chronic disease.

In 2002, Dr. McDougall began the McDougall Program in Santa Rosa, California. The McDougall program is a three or 10-day residential treatment program which features his plant-based, low fat, starch based diet.

In June 2013, Dr. McDougall released his best selling book "The Starch Solution," which has sold over a million copies. His partner in life and wife Mary contributed recipes for the book.

The "Starch Solution" is based on a simple swap; fueling your body primarily with carbohydrates rather than proteins and fats. Dr. McDougall's legion of followers says they have lost weight, boosted their energy and reversed their chronic disease like type-2 diabetes and heart disease.

Hope you enjoy today's fascinating conversation with best selling physician and nutrition expert, Dr. John McDougall.

The documentary film, Eating Animals, begins with a simple question: where does our meat, eggs, and dairy come from? It then takes us on a eye-opening journey of today’s industrial animal agriculture.

Eating Animals, is a enlightening movie about the environmental, economic and public health consequences of factory farming in America. It is slated to hit theaters across the country this month. 

The film is produced and narrated by actress Natalie Portman, based on the best selling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and directed by Christopher Dillon Quinn.

It received high praises from film festivals across the country including a standing ovation at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival.

Director Christopher Dillon Quinn tells the story of factory farming through intimate narratives of farmers, breeders, and activists dedicated to bringing their trade and the way we eat back to its roots.

In today’s podcast, we discuss the making of Eating Animals and the state of industrial farming in America with the director Christopher Dillon Quinn.

In addition to Eating Animals, Christopher Dillon Quinn directed the award-winning documentary "God Grew Tired Of Us" about the lost boys of Sudan.

We also get to hear from the best-selling author behind the film,  Jonathan Safran Foer. Eating Animals is Jonathan’s third book.

A Los Angeles Times article stated that Eating Animals contains “the kind of wisdom that deserves a place at the table with our greatest philosophers.”

In a Huffington Post article, Natalie Portman claimed that the book was so compelling that she went from a twenty-year vegetarian to a vegan activist.

According to a piece by the New Yorker, the power of the book lies in its ability to discuss why humans can be so loving to their companion animals while simultaneously being completely indifferent to the ones they eat.

Eating Animals opens in theaters on June 15. You can find out cities and dates here.

Most of my podcasts are centered around nutrition and the value of a plant-based diet to help you live a long, healthy life, but today I want to get back to the basics. 

When you first begin experimenting with a plant-based diet, it can be confusing. What are the essentials to buy? How do I  properly cook those essentials? And what foods are needed to keep your family healthy and energized?

Those topics are also helpful for anyone who has been practicing a vegan diet for some years because slowing down and re-evaluating how we do things can improve our approach to a plant-based lifestyle.

In today’s podcast, we learn what vegan essentials we need to stock and techniques to properly cook those essentials.  

We also explore cooking with fresh and dried herbs.

Herbs add flavor and brightness to any meal but maximizing that flavor is something that most of us have never been taught. In this podcast, we will learn the difference between delicate and hardy herbs and how to store, prepare, and cook with those herbs. 

Last but not least, today we visit Ordinary Vegan’s kitchen not once, but twice and create two of my favorite breakfast recipes; Vegan Fried Egg with a runny center and my favorite Mediterranean Vegan Omelet. 

There is much to cover, so this will be Part-1 of my series on vegan cooking. Please make sure you come back for more.

Researchers have found that adopting a vegan diet for diabetes has the potential to prevent and even reverse Type 2 diabetes. A healthy plant-based diet could also help improve symptoms for anyone suffering from the many types of this disease.

And one of the best ways to manage diabetes is to learn as much as you can about your condition.

Diabetes is now a disease that affects 371 million people worldwide, and 187 million of them do not even know they have the disease, according to the International Diabetes Foundation.

People who have diabetes can have numerous challenges. Including not knowing what to eat and conflicting nutrition information.

If you don't have diabetes, please note that the US National Library of Medicines predicts that the prevalence of diabetes will increase by 54% between 2015 and 2030, so many people are at risk. It is never too early to protect your body from becoming pre-diabetic.

Symptoms of pre-diabetes are easy to miss. This stage is referred to as the "grey area." Without drastic lifestyle changes, people with pre-diabetes could progress to full-blown diabetes. The scary thing about this type of diabetes is that it may have no signs or symptoms, and you won't find out unless you have a blood test.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common diabetes, and over 85% of people with diabetes suffer from Type 2. This type is considered a lifestyle disease and associated with the way a person lives. The main factors contributing to lifestyle diseases include diet, nutrition, lack of exercise, and drug or alcohol abuse.

With that said, it doesn't mean it's your fault that you have this disease. We have been duped by food advertising, food pyramids, food trends and misguided information about diet and food.

In today's podcast, I will share what's new in diabetic research and what it means to you. You will learn how to make nutrition therapy a part of your treatment plan. Including a list of superfoods that may help you prevent and even reverse your type-2 and pre-diabetes. We will also explore if a vegan diet for diabetes is the right diet for everyone.

Join me in Ordinary Vegan's kitchen and prepare a rainbow chard superfood recipe for people with diabetes.
