One of the most demonized foods in the natural health world is legumes. We hear that the anti nutrients in them are going to prevent absorption of nutrients and they will cause gas and bloating so they are not worth eating. What isn't talked about is the benefits of soluble fiber as it relates to bile and hormone and toxin removal.

Karen Hurd helped her daughter recover after she was incapacitated from organophosphates in an insecticide spray. She says that beans were the ticket to restoring her health. She has a Masters of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Saint Joseph and now educates on the many benefits of beans and soluble fiber.

In this interview she talks about why anti-nutrients aren't a big deal, the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber, what percentage of fat soluble waste and hormones get recycled if we don't eat soluble fiber throughout the day, how beans can alleviate a panic attack, who should consume fat with their beans, her views on good fats vs bad fats, cortisol reduction using beans, why she doesn't like cold plunges, why she believes most people have too much stomach acid vs too little, how beans can help alleviate heartburn, beans for acne, and much more.
