Show #330 – Dr Bill Rawls: Unlocking Cellular Health and the Magic of Herbal Medicine

LISTEN TO THIS WEEK’S SHOW ON iTUNES, STITCHER OR SPOTIFY OR LISTEN RIGHT HERE:

New music for the show, by LIOR.

We have a new tune for our show to welcome the new year! An old friend of mine from uni happens to be one of Australia’s finest artists, Lior, and as I love supporting local artists and it’s been brilliant having Melanie Horsnell’s music on the show the past couple of years, for 2023/24 it will be Lior. You will hear excerpts from his track “Caught Up”  – go check it out on iTunes or Spotify if you want to hear the whole song or album, Scattered Reflections. Co-written with Cameron Deyell, it’s a great song and I love the reflective energy of it – perfect for the show, right? Enjoy. Lior is always touring, so do check out his website. It is wonderful to hear him sing live, trust me.

And on this week’s show!

Today we talk about how to cultivate cellular wellness to both heal and prevent disease. My guest, Dr Bill Rawls was travelling along routinely as a 4th generation physician in his family, until he became unwell in a way that he didn’t seem to have any tools as a trained physician, to fix. When faced with Lyme disease, everything changed. In his quest to regain his health, Dr. Rawls knew he had to find his own path and new tools to restore wellness. For the past 15 years, he has extensively studied the science behind herbal therapies and new, sustainable approaches for protecting health in a proactive, preventative way, rather than waiting for something bad to happen.

Today, Dr. Rawls shares the revelations that helped him and thousands of others reclaim their lives. He is the best-selling author of Unlocking Lyme, and his most recent book, The Cellular Wellness Solution: Tap Into Your Full Health Potential with the Science-Backed Power of Herbs. 

I hope you love the show and pick up lots of goodness from Bill’s wisdom and wonderful way of explaining things.

Questions I asked Bill

  • You’re travelling along. Life is dandy – you’ve fulfilled the family prophecy as a 4th gen physician and then boom: You get Lyme disease – what did that experience do to change the trajectory of the way you support patients?
  • Did you look back at past tricky/chronic cases once you’d been through Lyme and think “I could have done so much more to help them!”
  • A term bandied about a lot is that we need to look after our health down to “cellular health” Can we talk about what that means + how it plays out down the road if our cellular health isn’t looked after?
  • What are some of the factors of different types of cellular stress and how can we take control of those stresses/stressors?
  • There’s a push towards supplements but there are lifestyle factors that move the needle big time that you can’t ‘out-supplement’ – can we have a reminder session?
  • We’ve talked about your experience with Lyme – Mold is another biotoxin illness crying for more support and recognition – how do you see things playing out for more research and recognition for biotoxin illness and treatment courses of action?
  • Herbal medicine is a particular passion of yours – what are some of your favourite herbs?
  • I’d love to look at nervous system health, cardiovascular health, and blood sugar regulation given the epidemics these three areas represent… The nervous system: If we are wired, anxious, scattered, and reactive – what herbs can we turn to, to support us? And what about if we’re feeling slow, muted, numb, in ‘freeze’ – favourite herbal supports there?
  • And for the cardiovascular system – what are some of your prophylactic supports from the herbal world to stay and be heart healthy?
  • Blood sugar – favourites there?
  • Herbal quality regulation, traceability, and transparency in production – if we want to buy things over the internet what sorts of questions should we be asking/signs should we look for in quality products and origins of ingredients?
  • What do you look for as a manufacturer from your suppliers to know something is being grown in good conditions/picked at optimal plant-active quality, dried without moulds developing before processing, etc…
  • You’ve written a rather epic book, The Cellular Wellness Solution – what do you hope people learn from the book and how they use it in their lives?
