SDR 51: Birth Control Pills and The Broken Medical Model

In it, I discuss the ridiculous thing this medical doctor said to my patient, as well as other classic examples like it...

SDR 37: Your Body's Sewer System - The Lymphatics

I’ve said many times that digestion is really two things: it’s how well we convert the food we are eating into usable nutrition, and how well we eliminate waste.

The lymphatics—a.k.a. your body’s sewer system—are imperative when it comes to keeping you healthy, and everyone should understand how it all works. So today, I’m going to share what you need to know...
