This was a very compelling interview because of the story it opened with. James Erdt transitioned from a place of darkness and crime in his youth to a way of living that inspires entrepreneurs and everyone around him to be better. This interview is somewhat like a self-help novel, but most importantly it speaks to the truth that each of us has a story of our own, and our stories enable us to do the work we are meant to do in the world.

Today’s interview is with a fellow Naturopathic Doctor, Marie Matheson. Marie practices in Ottawa and the almost exclusive focus of her practice is Lyme disease and associated chronic infections. While you may at first glance think that this doesn’t apply to you, I couldn’t disagree more. You see, at the end of the day, when we back up and try to understand where disease comes from, it usually comes from two sources: infections and exposures. We don’t just talk about Lyme, we talk about this notion of stealth infections, the idea that we gain exposures at times that we don’t even recognize; and those organisms lie dormant in our systems until we are tired, until we go through trauma, until our immune systems can no longer keep them at bay. If you are a citizen of the world, then this interview is for you.

 

Key Takeaways:

[2:35] When Dr. Matheson’s niece was bitten by a tick it made her realize that she didn’t have the adequate knowledge to treat Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.

[4:40] What is a stealth infection?

[6:13] What is Lyme disease and how does an acute manifestation differ from a chronic manifestation?

[9:20] Other insects besides ticks can carry Lyme, and it can also be sexually transmitted.

[10:55] How can you prevent these infections? Are certain people more susceptible?

[15:40] Dr. Matheson treats a lot of truck drivers. Here’s why.

[16:39] Due to lack of education, there are some controversies about Lyme and its treatment.

[20:47] Naturopathic doctors look at illness holistically. Most conventionally trained doctors won’t do that.

[24:03] How should you test for Lyme?

[26:00] A vaccine for Lyme would not be effective at preventing the illness.

[28:24] What is a spirochete? What is a biofilm?

[30:32] Lyme is a much more imminent threat than Zika.

[32:32] If you feel you have been misdiagnosed or your treatment isn’t working, you should consider that you may be dealing with Lyme.

[36:39] Treatment for acute Lyme is totally different than that for chronic Lyme.

[40:43] Prevention is the best cure for Lyme.

[42:34] How should you remove a tick?

[45:00] Health is physical, emotional, and spiritual balance.

[47:33] Dr. Matheson wants her legacy to be that she helped to reduce suffering from chronic illness.

[53:48] Take this month’s quiz at Meghanwalker.com/entrepologyquiz.

MORE ABOUT DR. MARIE MATHESON

Dr. Matheson believes in preventative medicine and the importance of determining the causal chain of illness by addressing toxicities at a cellular level. Using her assessment tool of Auricular Medicine, Dr. Matheson uncovers blockages and underlying imbalances that have created symptoms, to allow the body to self-heal and auto-regulate.

Today’s guest is someone I met at the gym, at a conference for health entrepreneurs. I had the fortunate experience of running into Dr. Vincent Pedre there at the gym and then later that day at a cocktail party, where we struck up a fascinating conversation about his transition from practicing internal medicine to practicing functional medicine, and how he healed his own digestive issues.

 

In today’s conversation, we go from discussing disease and the influence of the gut on chronic disease and autoimmune conditions, to discussing performance, the brain health axis, and the way that the health of our gut influences our ability to think clearly and execute profoundly every single day. This interview is not just relevant for people with digestive issues, it is relevant for anyone who is on a mission and wants to know where to start to improve their performance.

 

Key Takeaways:

[3:23] Dr. Pedre realized that he couldn’t offer his patients an exit strategy from the treatments he was giving them, and that drove him to functional medicine.

[6:19] Dr. Pedre realized that he could resolve his own IBS.

[9:21] Dr. Pedre mostly practices functional medicine, but he still performs screenings and recognizes his background in conventional medicine.

[10:34] This is where you can hear it from an MD: The food you eat affects your health, “100 percent!”

[13:18] Should everyone quit eating dairy and gluten?

[15:48] Changing your diet can be overwhelming, but you can do it. Find a doctor who empowers you.

[20:17] How are autoimmune conditions related to gut health?

[25:31] If you have elevated thyroid antibodies but still have normal thyroid function, you can prevent disease with lifestyle.

[28:22] How do you assess gut health? You might have gut issues and not know it.

[35:15] We think with our gut.

[39:27] Our current society is completely imbalanced.

[42:24] It’s important to learn to manage stress and cultivate supportive relationships.

[45:39] What does a healthy gut like to eat?

[48:23] Health is having the energy and the drive to do the things that you love.

[48:56] Take this month’s quiz at meghanwalker.com/entrepologyquiz.

[49:17] Let’s look at Dr. Pedre’s key performance indicators!

A few weeks ago I was speaking at an event called Mind Body Reset, and one of the speakers that came before me was Sylvie Tetrault. Sylvie is a holistic nutritionist, a trainer, and the host of the Championship Lifestyle Podcast. The focus of Sylvie’s career is getting all of us to execute as high performers. Sylvie shared so much great wisdom that I approached her after the event and asked her to come on the podcast and talk to my audience.

Today I had the pleasure of sitting down with her and we covered all sorts of elements but most importantly we talked about how to go from that place where we’re sort of floundering with what we eat and how we exercise, to the types of strategies we should implement in order to get a plan in place. Whether you’ve been wanting to get going or you already have a program and want to take it to the next level, this conversation is for you.

 

Key Takeaways:

[2:56] Sylvie became interested in strength training after she realized that she couldn’t do a pull-up. She has now had the opportunity to train a lot of high performers.

[6:42] What does an appropriate recovery time look like?

[15:03] You can learn to make healthy recipes, and it doesn’t have to take a long time. Eating well needs to be a priority.

[16:35] Eating right will help you in all areas of your life.

[17:35] Start by increasing your movement rather than adopting an “exercise plan.”

[23:01] What’s the right way to do cardio?

[26:25] What elements will the best exercise plan incorporate?

[31:42] Sometimes you have to think outside the box to find the right solution for your health.

[33:45] How can you find a good trainer?

[37:00] Sylvie focuses on helping people find their individual path to wellness.

[37:36] Health is knowing your body and its needs.

On Friday I gave a talk at Mind Body Reset entitled “What Diabetes and Hurricanes Have in Common.” This episode, based on that talk, is a call to action for all of you. I can’t think of a better audience to speak to on this topic because those of you who are listening are the doers of this world. You’re not people who are okay or satisfied with fine, and you are people who are willing to pick up a call to action and do something. We need to do something good for this world. I honestly believe that when people are well, they can change the world. I do what I do because I know that if teachers and parents and CEOs and entrepreneurs are strong and healthy, then they can invoke change in their communities with their ideas, inspiration, and actions.

 

In the next few minutes, I’m going to tell you what diabetes and hurricanes have in common, and what you can do to move the needle on one of the most important issues we are facing as a collective group of people.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:39] This episode is a call to action.

[3:47] Mother Nature is angry.

[4:56] Diabetes takes years to develop, and we must take deliberate action.

[7:23] Nature is beginning to buckle under the pressure we are applying against it.

[7:58] So what do hurricanes and diabetes have in common?

[8:24] People use sugar for a rapid energy boost.

[12:28] Sugar is particularly problematic if a system is already challenged.

[13:39] If you abuse your body, your cells may stop listening.

[16:42] Most pre-diabetic people think they are fine.

[18:06] Drugs to lower cholesterol complicate blood sugar problems.

[19:55] Right now is the prime time for a change, for our health and the health of the planet.
