Author and functional medicine nurse practitioner Maggie Berghoff joins us to talk all about inflammation—what causes it, how it hurts us, and how to combat it. We get into how inflammation intersects with hormone health, thyroid function, and metabolic syndrome.
Inflammation is at the root of everything. More inflammation means less energy and a higher risk of every disease. Today, we’re digging into exactly why inflammation is so insidious with functional medicine nurse practitioner Maggie Berghoff.
Maggie is a USA Today National Best-Selling author of the book Eat to Treat: Your Three-Step Plan To Reduce Inflammation, Detoxify Your Life, And Heal Your Body. She is also the founder of wellness supplement and non-toxic home line DETOXDaily.
In this episode, we talk all about inflammation—what causes it, how it hurts us, and how to combat it. We explore all the different types of inflammation, including physiological vs. psychological inflammation– and dig into how inflammation intersects with hormone health, thyroid function, and metabolic syndrome.
Maggie also shares her perspective about shedding shame around eating, and why perfectionism can be even more toxic than actually toxic foods. Plus, I share a lot of horrifying (but medically useful) information about urine. You’ll be equally intrigued and grossed out.
