Ep. 118 – Removing Toxicity to Reduce Inflammation and Finally Heal with Dr. Daniel Pompa

Your trusted source for nutrition, wellness, and mindset for thriving health.

We are thrilled to have Dr. Daniel Pompa joining us today! Dr. Pompa is a respected researcher, author, podcast host, and teacher. He specializes in root cause, inflammation-driven disease, the therapeutic application of the ketogenic diet, fasting, ancestral-based health approaches, cellular healing, and detoxification. Stay tuned for more!

At the end of 1999, after being in great physical shape, Dr. Pompa started experiencing a lack of energy. Thinking it was a result of over-training, he took some time off, but things got even worse. He began experiencing headaches, insomnia, and food allergies, so he spent a fortune on all kinds of physical tests, all of which came back normal. After that, he decided to figure things out for himself, and everything he teaches today came out of what he discovered while doing that. 

In today’s episode, he talks about removing the cause of toxicity and inflammation, going upstream, and following a multi-therapeutic approach to health and healing. Be sure to listen in today, to hear Dr. Pompa’s inspiring story, and find out what you need for healing and your optimum health.

“Everything I teach today came out of me figuring my health issues out and finding the upstream causative factor.”
