Episode 58: Bicarbonate supplementation/Tom Miller-life changing diagnoses

In this episode:

Bicarbonate is the latest in a long line of supplements to get the TriDoc treatment. I review the physiology to support the theoretical benefits and then review the scientific evidence to answer the important question: does it work? Then, I have a conversation with Tom Miller, a Colorado ultra-distance cyclist who learned last year that you should always listen to your body and seek medical care when things don't seem right because often, they aren't. Tom shares his cautionary tale as a warning to all.
