The Trouble With Oxalates with Lisa Pomeroy

Lisa Pomeroy is a traditional naturopath, FDN practitioner, Certified BioIndividual nutritional practitioner and Certified Gluten practitioner.

While I was studying FDN (Functional Diagnostic Nutrition), Lisa brought up the term "Oxalates" which I was not familiar with. These are compounds found in plant foods. They are not very much known, and as people do their best to eat healthy foods, they do not know that some of those foods are very high in oxalates. And if one has other health issues, these oxalates can accumulate and cause a lot of health problems.

We also talk about:

  1. Sources of oxalates especially from foods
  2. At what point oxalates become an issue in the body
  3. Bacteria in the gut that eat oxalates
  4. Signs of excess oxalates in the body and some of the illnesses or problems they can cause
  5. Strains that help with eating/breaking down oxalates
  6. Nutrients that help control oxalate levels
  7. And so much more…
