My recent interviews and talks about low-oxalate eating present important information that you’ll want to see and hear. In addition to the talks below, you can find more audio and video resources on the Results page and on my YouTube channel.
Presentation Recording: Become Oxalate Savvy for Better Health (November 2018)
I presented a lecture, Become Oxalate Savvy for Better Health, to an enthusiastic crowd at the annual Wise Traditions Conference in Baltimore MD on November 18, 2018. This MP4 file consists of the audio recording of my remarks paired with the video display of my slides. The slides are filled with images that tell the story of oxalates and why they are a problem.

Livin’ La Vida Low Carb, with Jimmy Moore (July 2018)
I talked with Jimmy Moore on his “Livin’ La Vida Low Carb” podcast about the benefits of low-oxalate eating, and some of the challenges that low-carb eaters can face when they start adding in high-oxalate foods such as nuts, spinach and swiss chard. We also talk about the “keto rash” and the unexpected symptoms that may arise when someone going low-carb suddenly and unknowingly zeroes out their oxalate intake.

Get Fit with Jodelle (July 2018)
Jodelle Fitzwater runs a great podcast Get Fit with Jodelle that you can find in many places (iTunes, Stitcher, HipCast, Player.fm) and on YouTube. I talked with her in the July 21, 2018 episode, which Jodelle introduced like this: “Could the so called superfoods of today actually be harming you? Why did Paleo come about and then several years later we needed Auto Immune Paleo? Do you eat cleaner than anyone you know and yet you have more issues than anyone you know? What is the Keto Rash and why does it happen? And why aren’t you seeing the results you want on a ketogenic diet. The truth is, many of today’s trendy superfoods such as those killer green smoothes, and sweet potato fries could actually be slowing killing you! And while nutrition isn’t the end-all-be-all with regard to optimal health, you should know that certain foods contain toxins called oxalates that could be the reason you are suffering.”

2017 Ancestral Health Symposium
I presented the potential problems stemming from the combination of lack of awareness of oxalates in foods and the promotion of superfoods, many of which are high in oxalate. When we encourage people to eat high-oxalate foods daily, we are putting them at risk for oxalate toxicity. As a result, we may be setting ourselves up for a public health crisis. A receptive audience in Seattle, Washington, heard this talk at the 2017 Ancestral Health Symposium.
Dr. Ruscio Radio (9/2017)
Dr. Michael Ruscio, a gut health expert who publishes an excellent podcast series, had some questions about oxalates and their role in chronic health problems. I explained the answers in the episode released on September 20, 2017. Go to Dr. Ruscio’s podcast of our talk for a full transcript and additional resources.
Keto Carole (9/2017)
Keto Carole produces a video podcast focused on low-carb eating. She is especially concerned about “how we’ve been ‘brainwashed’ to think that plants are so healthful and the more plant foods we get the better, so you should try to eat tons of them and juice them and eat giant salads.” After she heard my talk at the Ancestral Health Symposium, Carole and I sat down to explore hidden natural toxins such as oxalates in plants and how some plants are not the superfoods that we’re being told they are. This podcast episode was released on September 27, 2017. You can also find a transcript of our talk on Carole’s site.
