Is mold on your health radar? Dr. Jill wants to make sure it is.

Dr. Jill Crista is a naturopathic doctor and one of the leading experts in the treatment of mold-related illness - not only from her 20 years working with patients, but because toxic mold sprouted in her own home.

Her personal experience with mold inspired her to write a book to help others in the same situation. Her book, Break The Mold, clearly and simply outlines the functional medicine tools that everyday people can use to conquer mold.

Dr. Jill is on a mission to expand access to Mold-Literate practitioners. She developed a continuing education course for medical practitioners wanting to gain mastery in the diagnosis and treatment of mold - and has now certified over 500 doctors.

Anyone looking for a Mold-Literate doctor can check out the Find A Doc page on her website. If you don’t find someone close, consider joining the “Mold Canary” community - a membership where you can pick Dr. Jill’s brain a few times per month at the Q&A sessions, get helpful resources, and be supported by others going through the same thing.

Her motto? Break the mold, take back your health.

Needed is one of our podcast partners this season and Dr. Elana and Steph both LOVE this company. They have worked closely with Needed helping formulate some of their dream products and asked the co-founder, Ryan, to be a guest to help guide you mamas how to choose a high-quality prenatal multivitamin.  This is a hot topic they get asked often so it was time to dedicate an entire episode to this important topic.  Did you know that 97% of pregnant mamas in the US take a prenatal vitamin, yet 95% plus are still deficient in key nutrients? This is just one of many facts you will learn so pull up a chair and get your notepads out..you’ve got a lot of great info coming your way!

Show Notes: 

Ryan Woodbury is the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Needed, a nutrition company on a mission to empower women to find real nourishment on their journey to motherhood and beyond. We partner with doctors, midwives, nutritionists, biochemists, researchers, microbiologists, real mamas, and more to make better nutritional products and information more accessible in order to optimally nourish our mamas. 97% of pregnant mamas in the US take a prenatal vitamin, yet 95% plus are still deficient in key nutrients. I was one of them despite eating a really well sourced diet based on my environmental science and holistic nutrition training. In this episode we’ll run through some of the reasons why women are undernourished and how Needed designed their 4-Part Nutrition Plan to offer comprehensive nutrition for mamas and mamas-to-be.
