To kick off the second season of the HolisticND podcast, and to ring in the new year (Cheers, 2021!), Peter Bartlett of Bartlett Farms near Bottineau, ND, delivers fascinating information all about raw milk, including:

- Why it fell out of favor in the first place.

- What we know now (that we didn't then).

- How it can help you heal yourself and your family! 

- What you must know when it comes to sourcing raw milk.

Episode #18: A Functional Approach to Autoimmunity and the Many Uses of LDN with Steve Irsfeld, Pharmacist

Episode #18: A Functional Approach to Autoimmunity and the Many Uses of LDN with Steve Irsfeld, Pharmacist

December 21, 2020

This is such an energetically charged episode!  Steve Irsfeld, of Irsfeld Pharmacy in Dickinson, and Dr. Stephanie have an engaging and wonderfully thought-provoking conversation about a holistic view of managing autoimmune disease.  One emerging tool (with tons of evidence to support its uses) is low dose naltrexone, typically called LDN.  We discuss  many ways to stabilize the autoimmune response, including this medication, how it works and who may benefit from it.   

 

Steve is a second-generation pharmacist and has been compounding medications since 1998.  Irsfeld Pharmacy incorporated high quality nutritional supplements in 2005 and Steve and his team have spent the past 15 years promoting health through nutrition and nutritional support within the Dickinson community, and beyond!

Episode #17: Removing Obstacles to Cure -Discussing NAET with Dr. Beth Allmendinger, ND, LAc

Episode #17: Removing Obstacles to Cure -Discussing NAET with Dr. Beth Allmendinger, ND, LAc

December 14, 2020

In today's episode Dr. Stephanie sits down with fellow naturopathic doctor and colleague at Dakota Natural Health Center, Dr. Beth Allmendinger.  Dr. Beth has a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) degree and a Masters in Acupuncture (LAc).  

 

Though once a skeptic of muscle testing and NAET, Dr. Beth discusses how she came to find, implement and in some cases rely heavily on these strategies in her day-to-day clinical work.  With nearly 10 years of clinical practice and patient testimonies to support the modality, Dr. Beth believes just about any person can benefit from NAET (sometimes called "desensitizing") as a means of improving their overall health and immune system function.

Episode #15:  Mercury Doesn’t Belong in Your Mouth! with Dr. Maria Dwyer, DDS

Episode #15: Mercury Doesn’t Belong in Your Mouth! with Dr. Maria Dwyer, DDS

November 30, 2020

Dr. Maria Dwyer, DDS, is an Integrative Biological Dentist at Smiles by Design in Bismarck, ND.  Dr. Maria experienced her own health crisis in 2017 that fueled her down a path of acknowledging how toxic metals and chemicals, including those in her professional wheel house, negatively impact human health.  Since then, she has become certified by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) as a Biological Dentist and has completed training in the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).

 

We deep dive into MERCURY in this episode -->  How did this neurotoxin become such a staple in dentistry?  What do we know about mercury's effects in our bodies?  Does mercury lose its toxic potential if its been in there (your mouth) for decades?  Is there a safe way to prevent exposure to the toxic vapors when having amalgams removed??

Episode #13: What is your child’s behavior REALLY trying to tell you? with Valeria Meyers, MS, LPCC

Episode #13: What is your child’s behavior REALLY trying to tell you? with Valeria Meyers, MS, LPCC

November 16, 2020

Valerie Meyers, MS, LPCC, of the Kids Therapy Center in Bismarck (and Valley City!) has a passion for working with children who have experienced trauma.  Over the course of her career, and through personal experience with her own children, she also discovered the value (sometimes necessity) of incorporating a more holistic approach to understanding behaviors and the overall health of children. 

 

The Kids Therapy Center is known for play, art and sand tray therapies and also for their wellness programs that evaluate and encompass the health and wellness of the whole family unit, not just a struggling child/children.  By incorporating gene testing, organic acid testing, heavy metal testing and food sensitivities, Valerie and her team are helping families resolve health issues on an entirely different level.

Episode #12: Autism, Alzheimer’s & Albeism: Thoughts from a BCBA with Holly Johnson

Episode #12: Autism, Alzheimer’s & Albeism: Thoughts from a BCBA with Holly Johnson

November 9, 2020

In today's episode, I have the pleasure of discussing Applied Behavior Analysis with Holly Johnson, MS, BCBA, LBA of Minot, ND.  BCBA is not a very familiar job title, and Holly does a great job of defining what behavior analysis is, how/who it can help, and how BCBA services contribute to a holistic approach of caring for individuals, families and communities.

 

Seems kind of technical, right?  Consider the following situations:

- What can we do when a family is struggling to figure out how to help their neurodiverse child to not harm themselves out of frustration? 

- How do we support an aging parent with Alzheimer's to maintain as much independence and confidence as possible? 

- If a child is struggling to accomplish their IEP goals at school, what tools may help?

 

Towards the end of the episode, we discuss Allyship.  Holly explains how the field of Applied Behavior Analysis is/will be experiencing reform by hearing and valuing the voices of Autistic adults who experienced ABA during their childhoods.

Episode #10: Laser Dental Technology gives you more to SMILE about! - Dr. Brielle Renz

October 26, 2020

Did you know... Cavities can be filled painlessly WITHOUT anesthesia??  And that's just the tip of this episode's iceberg... 

 

Dr. Brielle Renz, DDS, of All Smiles Dental in Bismarck, joins Dr. Stephanie in this episode to discuss various oral (mouth) and dental concerns and how they are being treated with laser technology, as an alternative to traditional dentistry.

 

We also take a deep dive into understanding lip and tongue ties and the importance of correction (which is NOT a condition specific to infants and babies... ties can affect all ages in a variety of ways).
