Real Health Conversations
Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by FNTPs Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition science, expressing many different points of view.

Welcome to Real Health Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Real Health Conversations Podcast Leah and Holly take on coffee and cholesterol! Is the sophisticated sexiness of French Pressed coffee worth the alleged risk of negatively impacting cholesterol levels? This real health conversation was inspired by an article in the Huffington Post that very loosely links the two by inconclusive results from a weak study.

In this episode you’ll hear about why cholesterol is important and why we may not always have to be so concerned with lowering it. Cholesterol is necessary for healing and protection and not necessarily the bad guy it is made out to be.

Welcome to Real Health Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on Real Health Conversations, we take a look at the policies and regulations that govern the ingredients in our food (USA). The label “FDA Approved” is believed to be synonymous with tested and safe, but is that really the case?

Inspired by recent news headlines regarding a recent lawsuit against food company Mars, this episode looks deeper into the claims that Skittles candies were “unfit for human consumption” because of the presence of a “known toxin” called titanium dioxide.

Welcome to Real Health Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Real Health Conversations Podcast our guest is Dr. Don Clum, a chiropractor and specialist in advanced metabolic nutrition. Dr. Clum has an integrative program for insulin resistance specifically focusing on diabetes, diabetes prevention, metabolic syndrome, weight loss resistance, obesity, and cardiometabolic issues.

We welcome Dr. Clum back to dive into a recent article published in Science Magazine, which calls into question decades of science around Alzheimer’s disease. An estimated 6.5 million Americans age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s in 2022 and the numbers keep rising. In this episode we talk about how Alzheimer’s is also known as type 3 diabetes. What is the purpose of plaque on the brain and how do they relate to insulin? The answers may surprise you. Alzheimer’s is a scary disease, but we are not powerless against it! The best part of this episode is learning lifestyle tips for prevention.
