Christian Natural Health

Christian Natural Health is the podcast that teaches you about natural health from a biblical perspective. I'm Dr. Lauren Deville, a practicing naturopathic physician in Tucson, AZ. In this podcast, my guests and I will cover topics ranging from nutrition, sleep, hormone balancing and exercise, to specific health concerns like hair loss, anxiety, and hypothyroidism. Once a week, I'll include a bonus episode, meditating on a Bible verse or passage. I'll also interweave biblical principles as they apply throughout the podcast--because true health is body, mind, and spirit. Learn more about me at http://www.drlaurendeville.com/

Do you have low testosterone levels, or think you might?

This episode is based largely on this article: http://www.drlaurendeville.com/articles/naturally-increase-testosterone-levels/ although I do go off script a bit.

God delights in you. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing. He will restore your fortunes before your eyes.

In this podcast I explore the root causes of depression... the treatment is different depending on whether the issue is your: 

Circumstances (check this link: http://www.drlaurendeville.com/articles/5-natural-ways-improve-mood/)

Neurotransmitters (check this link: http://www.drlaurendeville.com/articles/depression-hypothalamus/)

Hormones (check these links: http://www.drlaurendeville.com/articles/rise-estrogen-dominance/ for women or http://www.drlaurendeville.com/articles/naturally-increase-testosterone-levels/ for men)

or Thoughts (check this link: http://www.drlaurendeville.com/articles/reprogramming-toxic-thoughts-generate-toxic-emotions/)

In this meditation, I explore Hebrews 6:11-12, and the story it references in Genesis of Abraham receiving the child God promised to him (Isaac) who was to become the father of many nations... well after both Abraham and his wife Sarah were able to bear children "in the natural." 

The lesson here is that hope creates faith, and faith creates patience.

In this verse, the Apostle Peter tells us we have received already from the Father everything we need that pertains to life and godliness, and that we grow in it through knowledge of the Father, glorifying Him through the fruits of the Spirit.

Today's episode focuses on four heavy metals and one element that I threw in for fun: cadmium, mercury, lead, aluminum, and fluoride. 

We discuss how you get exposed, tissues the metals concentrate in, conditions they cause, and how to avoid them. 

We also talk about how to optimize your body's detox mechanisms! 

This episode was inspired by this blog post: http://www.drlaurendeville.com/articles/heavy-metals-theyre/
