Did mac & cheese contribute to the death of Kurt Cobain?

Kurt Cobain was never a healthy dude. Drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, bad food, and more drugs didn’t help his infamously terrible stomach issues, issues that eventually helped push him to his death.

But what if Kurt had paid more attention to his diet? He loved his mac & cheese, which, of course, was heavy in dairy.

In this podcast by Marla Barr (“The Detox Yogi”), she looks at Kurt and is mac & cheese addiction. No, really.

With Kurt, I examined his mind-body type. From a young age, he complained of having intense stomach issues, which is very common for Vata/Vata mind-body types like he was. We look at what can be done to help amazing souls like Kurt today and how to best understand this beautiful, gifted mind-body type.

Okay. I’ll bite.
