Show Notes

I’m here with the brilliant Teri Cochrane, founder of the Global Sustainable Health Institute and an international thought leader on longevity. She has decades of clinical work, and she developed the Cochrane Method and the Wildatarian Diet, which we talk about today.

She helps people with the intersection of gene expression due to pathogenic and environmental causes, energy, and a personal blueprint based on a variety of lifestyle factors. We discuss a lot of interesting topics today, including the role viruses, bacteria, and fungus play in genetic expression, why genes are only a small but important part of health, and how to influence our genes to our advantage.

She truly is a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to talk to. I learned a lot in this interview, and I know that you will as well.

This podcast is sponsored by Good Culture, a company making naturally fermented dairy products, including my favorite cottage cheese. This is a food I loved as a kid and stopped eating when I realized what was hiding in most brands. But my love was reignited when I found Good Culture! It has 19 grams of protein in every single serve cup and is low-carb, keto, gluten-free and gut friendly. They even have lactose free varieties. Good Culture’s cottage cheeses are the ultimate protein-packed addition to your breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can mix it in with your bowl of oats, spread it on some toast, or enjoy it on its own for a light snack. The options are endless. And if you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, try Good Culture’s low-sugar fruit-on-the-bottom cottage cheese. Each cup has fresh fruit in every bite with only 3-grams of sugar and boasts 15-grams of clean protein. Good Culture is a proud certified B corporation and donates 1% of all profits to support regenerative agriculture. So ditch your yogurt and head to goodculture.com/wellnessmama to save on your next purchase with a coupon — exclusive just to our listeners!

This podcast is brought to you by Olipop– a new kind of soda that is actually good for you (and tastes amazing). I’d given up on sodas a long time ago until I found olipop…  It tastes just like the sodas I grew up with, but unlike other sodas that are full of sugar, corn syrup, and artificial ingredients like aspartame, OLIPOP is made with natural ingredients that are actually good for you. And this is why Olipop is the fastest growing functional beverage brand in America. They have delicious nostalgic flavors like Vintage Cola, Classic Root Beer, Orange Squeeze, Cherry Vanilla, Strawberry Vanilla and their newest flavor Classic Grape. My personal favorite is strawberry vanilla and my kids love the root beer. They use functional ingredients that combine the benefits of prebiotics, plant fiber and botanicals to support your microbiome and benefit digestive health. And they have less than a tenth of the sugar of regular soda, all from natural gut-friendly sources. They are so confident that you will LOVE their products that they offer a 100% money back guarantee for orders placed through their website. I’ve worked out a special deal just for you. Receive 15% off your purchase. I recommend trying their variety pack. This is a great way to try all of their delicious flavors.
