Understanding The Root Cause of Autoimmune Conditions and Navigating the Healthcare System

With Meghan Telpner

Did you know that 77% of Americans say they regularly experience symptoms caused by stress, 50% experience fatigue, and 30% experience digestive issues? Digestive upset and fatigue together are an excellent combination for impairing the immune system, and therefore, it becomes a collective journey to heal the body.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Meghan Telpner, a Toronto-based author, speaker, nutritionist, and founder of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. She is also the bestselling author of UnDiet: Eat Your Way to Vibrant Health and The UnDiet Cookbook. In this podcast, we talk about the factors that contribute to autoimmune disease, potential triggers, and steps to begin the healing process. We talk about how to find the right practitioner to support you on your healing journey and the importance of being your own best health advocate. We also talk about the importance of spending time in your kitchen cooking meals from scratch and really paying attention to what is going into the food you are eating.

Meghan shares with us a simple, attainable, and most importantly, a sustainable approach to living life well!

I know you’ll love this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as much as I did.
