BFR Training

http://learntruehealth.com/bfr-training/

BFR training is getting positive results from those who have tried it.  But for those who haven’t you might want to give this a try if your goal is to gain muscle mass.  To know more about BFR training, join me and my guest, Kusha Karvandi on this episode.

Finding Passion

There are so many ways to lose weight.  It doesn’t have to mean lifting weights all the time. Even walking is a form of effective exercise if you do it consistently. It’s the micro-habits that can help change our body. I was pleased to find out that Kusha Karvandi also has a Sunlighten Sauna, although it shouldn’t be a surprise since he says he’s a fan of heat therapy in general.

Kusha Karvandi first worked as a part-time membership sales guy at a gym in San Diego. When Kusha Karvandi was in school, he initially thought he was going to take the medical route because he wanted to become a doctor. But then he soon realized that he was not cut out for sales. Instead, he was always passionate about health fitness and working out.

“I found a passion for it during the first three to six months doing personal training, and I did it for several years. Apart from that, I also had a big boxing gym in San Diego,” shared Kusha Karvandi. 

He adds, “I started managing gyms and teams, hired and developed hundreds of trainers and I had different certifications. They all speak through the lens of biomechanics. And they all look at the human body as being a biomechanical machine. To a certain extent, it’s true.

Career Shift

By accident, Kusha Karvandi stumbled upon this science called Functional Neurology. It’s like neurology but more of an Applied Neurology. It looked at how does an exercise program influence the brain, or how can we get the brain to influence the goal of fat loss or muscle gain. 

“But there are things like visual skills you need to have to have optimal performance. And that includes strength,” said Kusha Karvandi. “I also realized that traditional medicine is good for emergencies. But regarding improving quality of life and optimal performance, traditional medicine has many pitfalls.”

 One pitfall of traditional medicine is the fact that it is impersonal. There is no diving into a patient’s deep health history.  Often, patients are hardly analyzed, and the solution is usually either surgery or prescribing medication. 

BFR Training

BFR stands for blood flow restriction.  According to Kusha Karvandi, BFR training helps people gain muscle and strength without having to lift heavy weight. Kusha Karvandi first learned about BFR training when he read about it in a journal around six or seven years ago.

For those who are not aware, BFR is not new. It has been around for decades with over 25 years of research and the subject of approximately 200 studies. It was initially developed by a Japanese doctor to help his patients prevent atrophy.

“It made its way into the bodybuilding world because they wanted to use this to gain size and strength,” shares Kusha Karvandi. “In the 90s or before that, the bodybuilding community adopted this to use it as a tool to gain size and strength, without lifting heavy weights. If you lift heavy weights all the time, it takes a toll on the body and brain.”

Benefits of BFR

Kusha Karvandi believes that a good workout gives the body more than it takes. With exercise, most people immediately think they need to do more, lift heavier, workout harder – when in reality they need to trainer smarter and more efficiently.

“I realized how valuable BFR could be too pretty much anybody who wanted to look and feel better. If somebody is trying to strengthen an area that’s weak and can’t do a whole lot of load, this is a great tool,” said Kusha Karvandi.

Kusha Karvandi also says that the goal is keeping workout efficient. And also remember that the recommended weight is 20% of your max in terms of load. Because apparently, it is easier to fatigue with heavy loads so start lighter.

Things To Remember

Kusha Karvandi also advises everyone to maintain technique before increasing loads. Genetics, nutrition and hormonal factors all have a role in building muscle, so it is essential to pay attention to those factors as well.

“As for fat loss, it has more to do with the hormone influence on IGF 1 and growth hormone as well as the metabolic stimulation and metabolic stress,” said Kusha Karvandi. “It’s almost like high-intensity interval training workout. Also, remember to change things every so often.”

He also advises to pay attention to recovery and get some hot sauna therapy as well. Because ideally, you have to have a planned recovery if you want to see continued progress.

“Research showed that doing lightweight BFR training has been equally as effective. In some cases, more effective than doing traditional weight training with moderate to heavy weight without the band,” Kusha Karvandi said.

He adds, “Many people think that because of where the bands are placed, that the only benefit is to the muscles directly near the side of the cushion. But it’s creating a systemic effect. In fact, because of metabolic change, you’re building a shift in homeostasis. 

Choosing A Trainer

In any diet or exercise, it is always best to get professional help. But not all trainers or health practitioners are good, so you still have to be alert on how to choose the best one.

For choosing trainers, in particular, Kusha Karvandi suggests looking for trainers who jot down your progress. Observed if they are engaged in your workout and gauge how are they facilitating.

Recommended Frequency

Kusha Karvandi recommends that doing BFR training for two to three weeks is best. He also dismisses rumors that BFR training is unsafe.

“There is no increase in coagulation with BFR training and no added risk. In a Scandinavian study, it stated that BFR training is safer than traditional training,” said Kusha Karvandi.

He adds, “I’m not a big fan of CrossFit. They are using traditional training. In many cases, heavyweight training like Olympic lifting and combining it with high-intensity and high reps. It’s a recipe for disaster like muscle damage as well as a breakdown of muscle cells and leaking toxicity into the body which can kill you.”

Basic Diet

Diet is not complicated in BFR training.  Kusha Karvandi says to make sure you get adequate protein intake from a natural source. Supplements are also useful for muscle gain, and creatine has been proven to help gain size and strength.

A right amount of fish oil intake is also recommended as well as eating enough saturated fats. Kusha Karvandi also reminds everyone to have enough electrolytes to replace minerals for proper muscle contract and recovery. Magnesium and vitamin B12 complex can also work wonders for your muscle progress.

“When you gain muscle mass, it burns more calories. You have a higher energy demand. You’re going to be hungrier. Gaining muscle mass is important if your goal is permanent weight loss,” said Kusha Karvandi. “How you train and the genetics you have, the supplements you take, physically dictate how big you get. It helps to burn more calories at rest and be more efficient.”

He adds, “I’m also not a fan of fat burners. The best fat burner is eating better, sleeping better and exercising better. It’s all about finding what works for you.”

BFR Bands Online Store

You can buy BFR bands at Kusha Karvandi’s online store. There are several bands to choose from, and very affordable, too! You don’t need to worry about the bands pinching your skin because it has been tested and proven to aid your workout in the most comfortable way possible.

Apart from the bands, there are also several supplement products, accessories, books, and apparel on his website. There’s even an app and a BFR course to guide you through the workout.

As an added incentive, Kusha Karvandi threw in something nice for Learn True Health listeners. Just type in LTH at checkout to avail of the discount so do check out the website. 

Bio

As a personal trainer, Kusha Karvandi has trained over 10,000 hours of one-on-one sessions. With over 20 nationally-recognized certifications and a unique specialty in neuroscience, Kusha Karvandi’s ability to transform his clients is unlike any other coach in the fitness industry. 

Although considered the eternal student, Kusha Karvandi describes his coaching philosophy by the Latin word “docere” which implies ‘coach as teacher.’ Kusha Karvandi is the creator of the BFR Bands, designed for the research-backed form of training known as blood flow restriction training which helps you gain muscle and strength without lifting heavy weight.

Understanding Epigenetics http://learntruehealth.com/epigenetics

Epigenetics and gene methylation are two essential components to our health. Symptoms can only warn us at a certain extent, but epigenetics and gene methylation enable us to understand why our body is working the way it is.  To help us understand epigenetics and gene methylation and how it affects us, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald is on the show today to explain why.

Early Training

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald shares that she did some did training after medical school, after which she took on a post-doctorate position in Nutritional Biochemistry at a chemistry lab that was pretty advanced. Together with a team, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald analyzed things like organic acids and toxins. 

“We were looking at evidence of how genes were functioning in our bodies by looking at various things that were products of gene activation,” said Dr. Kara Fitzgerald. “We eventually started analyzing the microbiome using PCR and DNA analysis. Incidentally, we were the first lab to offer it clinically. So in a way, we were early adaptors.”

Then, after some time, the whole idea of methylation became popular. Many people started inquiring about data. According to Dr. Kara Fitzgerald, it was exciting, but her background is working in the laboratory keeps her rooted in research. 

What Is Methylation

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald explains that methylation is a massive multi-factorial process that happens in the body. But simply put, a methyl group is just carbon with three hydrogens.

“We can then take that methyl group and stick it on to compounds in the body and then pop it off as compounds,” said Dr. Kara Fitzgerald. “So, we’re forever putting methyl groups on to things and taking it off of things.” 

She adds, “So it’s difficult to pin down what symptoms are associated with methylation. Because it is fundamental, and it is happening all over the place. To date, over two hundred enzymes are using that methyl group in humans.”

Discovering Epigenetic Methylation

Some years ago, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald came in contact with epigenetic methylation. DNA methylation is a fundamental epigenetic piece. The hypermethylation of a gene generally turns it off while the hypomethylation of a gene generally allows it to be expressed. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald says because of that, it can have a profound influence on health or the expression of disease.

Tumor suppressor genes can be hypermethylated and turned off. Hypomethylation will allow a gene to be expressed. It is also here where you can see the hypomethylation patterns in cancer and other chronic diseases.

“The gene that’s going to promote the development of cancer could be hypomethylated and therefore turned on. As I dove into the literature, I thought that perhaps we were pushing methylation too far and influencing negatively epigenetic methylation,” said Dr. Kara Fitzgerald. 

She adds, “We want to pay attention to what’s coming down the scientific pipe. Think about it being applicable and likewise ask if we are doing something that we need to change. The world of epigenetic methylation is a huge a-ha moment for me, ultimately changing the way I think and practice medicine.”

Methylation Goals

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald reveals that people should aim for balanced methylation of the epigenome. We must also be able to allow the body to make the decision points on how our epigenome is methylated.

There are demethylating drugs that are used in cancer therapy, and they do widespread demethylation of the epigenome. But while they are helpful, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald says they are not specific.

But it looks like nutrients can be a little bit more specific around allowing balanced methylation expression in the epigenome. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald primarily uses diet to optimize methylation expression or epigenetic expression in the body.

“The research in epigenetics prompted me to pause and not just push methylation forward because we see a genetic mutation in somebody,” explains Dr. Kara Fitzgerald. “Be mindful around the fact that pushing methylation reactions forward with high dose B vitamins will probably prove that it’s not the best way.” 

She adds, “In the short term if you got somebody who has a profound B-12 or folate deficiency and has anemia because of it, that might not be the answer. There may also be anxiety or imbalance in their transmitters that could change moods.”

But Dr. Kara Fitzgerald says that the bigger question to ask is why we are methylating genes that we don’t want to methylate. Another point to ponder on is gauging whether we are shutting off tumor suppressor genes that we otherwise wish to function well.

Furthermore, if we don’t have enough methylation nutrients in our body, we must figure out if we allow the expression of genes we don’t want to express. Another factor to think about is seeing whether we cause our epigenetic methylation patterns to be off. 

Epigenetic Clock

One area that Dr. Kara Fitzgerald is interested in is cancer. She says some of the detox genes can be methylated and turned off. The other piece she’s interested in is aging.

“Aging itself is a process where we stop methylating as well. As we age, we see regions of the gene hypomethylating. But you can still have regions of hypermethylation that you don’t want,” Dr. Kara Fitzgerald said. “Dr. Steve Horvath from UCLA designed an epigenetic clock. There are over 300 methylation sites on the genome that is associated with aging.”

In Dr. Kara Fitzgerald’s program, people’s epigenetic clock is changed. The program involves dietary changes, meditation, tracking sleep, and exercise. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald further reveals that the program changes the protein produced by the genome through altering the epigenome that creates a better environment, which ultimately is a better way for us to respond to stress.

“There are all sorts of methylation patterns associated with stress and depression. Sometimes, we can inherit it from our parents, or we can develop these imbalanced patterns from childhood. We can also get them as adults during extremely stressful periods,” said Dr. Kara Fitzgerald.

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald says sleep quality also influences epigenetic expression. We also know that diet has a massive influence on epigenetic expressions as well. Under her program, they help people transition from a standard American diet to a diet that’s very rich in methyl nutrients through food.

Ongoing Research

There are many ongoing research studies to understand epigenetics and gene methylation better. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald shares that research today demonstrates that healthy food does have a protective effect. We have a robust methyl donor-rich diet, but we also have foods called methylation adaptogens to finesse methylation.

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald also reveals that studies are looking at inflammatory or anti-inflammatory genes. The first thing to figure out is whether or not the pro-inflammatory genes are turned on. And then at the end of the study, researchers look into possibilities whether or not we can inhibit them.

Research Results

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald also shares that a lot of the current research we have on epigenetics is limited to animal studies. But more studies are coming out in humans.

“We can’t do a one-on-one extrapolation, but there’s research that deprives animals of one night of good sleep. It’s not just the next night that they are messed up. It lasts till the next day,” said Dr. Kara Fitzgerald.

Therefore, you can imagine the lasting damage that can happen on the epigenome, altering the genetic expression if you get poor quality sleep. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald likewise reveals that there are epigenetic marks that aren’t going to be changed by diet and lifestyle. Plus, there are regions of the epigenome that are more vulnerable to these changes.

“There are many differential methylation patterns in many autoimmunity conditions. Autism incidentally is a huge one,” said Dr. Kara Fitzgerald. “Neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s has imbalanced methylation patterns as well.”

Furthermore, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald says there’s a higher incident of autism in moms with autoimmunity. Having heavy metals and toxins in the body also affects the methylation process.

Adaptogenic Foods

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald advises eating food that are methyl donors and food containing folate, vitamin B-12, beets, and minerals. Ultimately, she says we need a good, rich body of methylation donors to keep that happening.

Incidentally, a Functional Medicine doctor, Dr. Michael Stone from Oregon, coined the term methylation adaptogens. Methylation adaptogens are compounds in fruits and vegetables. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald describes them as active constituents that augment methylation behavior.

One of Dr. Kara Fitzgerald’s favorite form of nutrition is green tea because of EGCG, which stands for epigallocatechin gallate.  It is a polyphenol with health benefits against diseases like obesity, insulin resistance, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Rosemary is also a powerful epigenetic modulator, and the same goes for curcumin, blueberries, and turmeric. Good fatty acids are recommended, and Dr. Kara Fitzgerald says there are also some probiotics that appear to be able to promote folate production.

Ultimately, Dr. Kara Fitzgerald encourages a food first approach before taking any medicine.  A good healthy gut is essential as well as getting enough exercise.  One big thing that can help is minimizing toxin exposures.

Additional Resources

For additional information on methylation, check out Dr. Kara Fitzgerald’s website.  You’ll be able to find links to her e-book, Clinical Development Programs, Functional Nutrition Residency Program as well as contact information of her clinic.

There’s also a link to her FXMED podcast and a collection of recipes that are easy to make.  Her online store also has products to help improve methylation and an assortment of supplements.

Eliminating Anxiety http://learntruehealth.com/eliminating-anxiety

Eliminating anxiety is such an essential component for achieving success and happiness. But a lot of people still have no idea that anxiety is a significant deterrent.

Anxiety has become the number 1 mental health issue in the United States. Studies show that one-third of the American adult population usually experience anxiety-related issues. And the results are not surprising because anxiety affects a lot of things. 

I guested recently on Melissa Monte’s Mind Love Podcast where I talked about eliminating anxiety techniques as well as tips on creating healthy habits and rewiring your brain. This episode will teach you how to rewire our brain, form positive habits, think happy thoughts, react better and learn faster.

Childhood Years

I was a very sickly child when I was about six years old during the 80s. That time, my mother was working hard and tended to take a lot of antibiotics or medicines instead of resting.

My mother ended up getting candida and yeast overgrowth. She felt horrible and irritable aside from dealing with brain fog. That usually happens when we take a lot of antibiotics because it kills all this good biome and bacteria.

Discovering Natural Medicine

Soon enough, my mother found a Naturopathic Doctor and took me along as well. After a battery of tests, that doctor declared that I was allergic to milk, wheat, yeast, and sugar.

There were supplements that he created and got both my mother and me on a diet. Our new diet was gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, dairy-free and had lots of vegetables.

The new diet would consist of anything from fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, beans, some fish, and some chicken. It sounds boring, but my health improved significantly. In fact, I had so much energy and didn’t get sick anymore. 

Rebel Years

Like the typical teenager, I decided to rebel when I was 13 years old. It was not long after that I lost my health. By the time I was 19 years old, I was pre-diabetic. I also developed PCOS and was told that I’d never have kids.

By the time I was 26 years old, I was suffering from monthly chronic infections that needed antibiotics.  I also had chronic adrenal fatigue and became a full-blown diabetic.

It was a hard time for me because it was also during this period that my mother passed away. I lost myself, my emotional body and mental body. In an attempt to find a way to heal, I discovered Neuro-linguistic programming.

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)

Neuro-linguistic programming is a way of communicating, psychotherapy and personal development that started in the 1970s. It has incredible tools that can make you mentally stronger.

You can become stronger by letting go of negative emotions. Let go of limiting decisions and create the person you know you are without all the garbage and baggage. Neuro-linguistic programming helps you let go of a lot of guilt and shame.

A Better Place

So, in becoming a Master Practitioner and Trainer of Neuro-linguistic programming, Timeline Therapy, Hypnosis, and Health Coaching, I healed my heart. As far as dieting is concerned, I tried a lot of diets and failed because I realize the nutrition factor was missing.

Then I found Natural Medicine again seven years ago. Becoming a Health Coach was very fulfilling because I helped clients heal naturally and work on things like eliminating anxiety. In fact, I personally never realized I had anxiety until I learned not to have it anymore.

My life is different now.  I was able to conceive naturally to a healthy baby boy who is now three years old. And doing this podcast gives me so much joy knowing I am helping to educate a lot of people.

Understanding Anxiety

Some techniques can help change things to achieve specific goals in life. Such as treating phobias, depression, learning disorders and eliminating anxiety.

Anxiety, in particular, can be different for everybody because we are so different from our belief system.  But remember, anxiety is not a negative emotion.

Sometimes, anxiety is associated with anger.  And anger is healthy when it is anger at the moment. Why? Because it helps us get motivated to do something somehow. So, it’s healthy to process it and let it go immediately. Looking at it from another perspective, an unconscious mind is communicating emotions to us.

In Touch With Emotions

Sometimes, our emotions come from unresolved memories from the past. It can also be negative beliefs about ourselves which we have to resolve. Anxiety helps us focus on what we want.

You see, the body cannot tell the difference between what is imagined and what is real. There’s a study conducted wherein there were three controlled groups of people.

The first group was taught simple 5-finger piano exercises. Those people never played the piano before. The second group was tasked to imagine playing the piano with one hand. Then the third group was made to play the piano without any prior lessons. Each exercise lasted for thirty minutes.

For the first two groups, results showed that they were three times more expressive than people who just aimlessly played the piano. Those who imagined playing the song and those who played the song to the body and the brain happened to produce the same result. The study proved that those who just imagined over and over again, have just as much improvement as those who practiced.

Now the problem with anxiety is that people who don’t understand why we have anxiety, go to a doctor.  The doctor would then and put patients on drugs which eventually alters the chemistry of the body.

But then people would usually say they still felt anxious. This is because they always focus on what they don’t want. And when this happens, you are triggering your stress response over and over. That’s why our body can’t heal. And when stress isn’t adequately addressed, it can sometimes lead to cancer. 

Being Aware Of Symptoms

Physical symptoms should be regarded as a warning signal to investigate the root of whatever is going on. Because people aren’t just born with anxiety. Relief from some things doesn’t mean that any actual feeling has occurred. It’s usually just suppressing it.

I firmly believe we can reverse almost everything with Natural Medicine. Although I appreciate drugs for emergency medicine, there are some situations when drugs are not necessary. For example, for chronic illness, you should not see a medical doctor. This also goes for the time when we have emotions we want to resolve.

Anxiety Freedom Relief Technique

This particular eliminating anxiety technique focuses on what you do want. Mainly, you want to send a message to your body that we are now at a safe place. It is actually what NLP is, which is understanding how our neurology works.

First of all, think of about that future event that stresses you out and get in touch with that. Gauge it on a scale of 1 to 10, with one being the lowest. Then imagine how much anxiety do you feel right now.

Close your eyes and float above your timeline. Float for 15 minutes past the successful completion of the event to which you have anxiety from. You need to imagine the successful completion.

Then think about what level is your anxiety now. Usually, 95% of listeners at this point no longer have anxiety. Because they were obvious on what they were anxious about. They went through 15 minutes past the successful completion which told their body that the threat is gone now. That’s how you turn off that stress response.

As for the remaining 5%, those are usually the people who didn’t imagine the success. Some people imagine the completion. They did not envision the root reason why they have anxiety in the first place.

So, an effective way of eliminating anxiety is by going 15 minutes past the completion of your life.  And have a positive mindset. Motivate yourself to think that your life is going to work out.

Duration

Usually, it takes between 21 and 60 days to make or break a habit. Learn the art of habit stacking. One way is to pick something you do every day and stick to that. It’s a lot easier adding to your routine than it was to create it in the beginning. Intentionally focus on what you want.

And why does it happen?  Well, because there’s part of the brain called the reticular activating system. It’s part of our brain’s filter system that allows us to get what we want. Plus, it can’t tell the difference between a negative and a positive. In other words, it helps us get what we don’t want.

Hakalau

Hakalau means Peripheral Vision and Expanded Awareness in the Hawaiian language.  It is also known as The Learning State. It’s all about becoming aware of your peripheral vision.

There are exercises you can do every day to develop your peripheral vision and your awareness. It teaches you to step away and become an observer, to learn to slow things down and think before reacting.

Zero Waste Living

http://learntruehealth.com/zero-waste-living/

How many of you have tried to live a life of zero waste? In this materialistic world,  having zero waste seems something hard to do.  But it is possible.  My guest Rachel Pulley will teach us the beauty of having zero waste lifestyle and how to be aware of the problems that our waste is creating.

How It All Began

Rachel Pulley’s zero waste journey began about over two years ago.  She says her zero waste lifestyle started in a place that is quite unusual for most people. One day, Rachel Pulley got overwhelmed with how much waste we create during whenever women have their period. That is indeed an odd place where people would start a zero-waste lifestyle.

“I say it’s a funny place to begin this journey because this change is usually the last one people make. And I became overwhelmed by the thought of all the waste I would produce in my lifetime alone,” said Rachel Pulley.

Starting The Research

So Rachel Pulley began researching for feasible solutions or alternatives. That’s where her journey started.  The more she dug into the zero waste lifestyle, Rachel Pulley found different podcasts that she loves to listen to. 

“I found bloggers living a Zero Waste Lifestyle, authors, and community and I began my journey through those experiences,” said Rachel Pulley. “But I am not a scientist or environmentalist but I see what’s happening and it worries me.”

Menstrual Cup

Using a menstrual cup was Rachel Pulley’s initial attempt to live a life of zero waste. A menstrual cup comes in different kinds, and Rachel Pulley declares the little silicone cup as life-changing.

For sanitary reasons, Rachel Pulley boils her menstrual cup once a month, and she even has no problems sleeping with it.  There’s a brand of a menstrual cup that comes in assorted colors, and Rachel Pulley assures that it’s not hard to use it. She also advises women to watch Youtube tutorials to learn how to use a menstrual cup.

I have read that tampons and pads are harmful if they aren’t organic.  This is because we can absorb chemicals from the cotton. That’s why Rachel Pulley also recommends using cloth pads. 

In A Nutshell

Rachel Pulley says she strives to live the zero waste lifestyle. And there are so many factors in our surroundings that contribute to waste. Plastic breaks up over time and becomes smaller. Eventually, the fishes in the ocean will think it’s food, so they eat it, and we eat them. That’s how plastic is starting to show up in us.

“Our waste doesn’t just go away. It’s affecting our environment, killing animals, affecting our health and draining our resources,” said Rachel Pulley.

Baby Steps

Apart from the menstrual cup, Rachel Pulley started bringing a reusable bag everywhere especially during shopping trips and doing the grocery. This is because she says plastic bags get ripped and soiled. It then ends up in landfills or shipped to underdeveloped countries.

A big chunk of plastic also ends up in oceans.  The plastic by then looks like food, which turtles think it’s jellyfish.

“There are so many different forms of waste. It can be trash, food waste or clothing,” explains Rachel Pulley. “When you’re starting this journey, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all. But we aren’t perfect.” 

She adds, “Try a zero waste audit. Look at your trash. Think of what you can get rid off and what you can’t live without. It’s a fun journey, and it should uplift you.”

Zero Waste Party

Rachel Pulley threw a unique birthday party to celebrate her 30th birthday last year. She says doing a zero waste party needs ample time for planning since you have to figure out how to get products in alternative ways.

One way is to buy ingredients in bulk and pack them in your reusable bag or steel containers especially when purchasing meat. For her party, Rachel Pulley made appetizers and had guests use cloth napkins instead of paper plates.  For drinks, there was lemonade served in glass cups. 

“People won’t understand it at first. But get creative. Expose kids to the outside world to help them be aware. Have a family clean-up to motivate kids. Do a beach clean-up time to time because kids generally want to change the world,” said Rachel Pulley.

Recycling

Rachel Pulley doesn’t think plastic is necessarily the enemy, but what we created it to be, it’s everywhere. So, her advice is to just become more mindful not only of recycling.

“Recycling is a good alternative. But I don’t think it’s the best way to handle what we got,” said Rachel Pulley. “Because in the end, recycling something has to start somewhere. It can’t just keep being recycled unless it’s glass or paper.” 

Zero Waste Home

One of Rachel Pulley favorite authors is Bea Johnson, the author of Zero Waste Home. To jumpstart your zero waste lifestyle, Rachel Pulley advises starting with refusing the things you don’t need. Then reuse the things that you can.

“The idea is to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle. Reduce by looking where to stop buying and replace with something better. Recycling is at the bottom because essentially, you want to cut out as much as you can,” said Rachel Pulley.

Containers And Utensils

Since we know that we can absorb the toxic elements from plastic cups, it’s best to invest in glass containers to store food and stainless-steel containers like this brand called Hydroflask. It may be costly, buy investing in good containers and thermos bottles can do wonders for your health in the long run.

Another way is to bring your silverware.  Nowadays, there are even more alternatives when it comes to utensils. Some are also made from bamboo.  Rachel Pulley says an excellent resource for environmentally-friendly items aside from Amazon or eBay is a website called Tiny Yellow Bungalow and Package Free Shop in New York City.

These companies even go as far as packaging with paper or cardboard. Another great item to invest in reusable straws which are easy to clean.

Dealing With Food

Speaking of food, a zero waste lifestyle means you will also tend to steer clear of processed foods since those are packaged with plastic.  You get to eat more real food that way.

“I try to live healthily and eat clean. And I always know the difference between how I eat. But I also notice a huge difference in my health as far as living,” said Rachel Pulley. “I also don’t clean with a ton of chemicals.”

Food Waste

Food waste is a good mix of food waste and dirt. Rachel Pulley says that it’s making soil nutritious because it has the opportunity to break down properly.

“A lot of people will have a worm compost where those worms do a ton of good things. So, if you see worms in your soil, that is a great sign. They help the composting process,” said Rachel Pulley.

She adds, “Composting sounds more intimidating than it is. The only things you can’t compost are fish and meat. Because it becomes putrid and harmful to animals if they eat it.”

Do The Research

Rachel Pulley also encourages people to do their research. Research recycling in your area because there are many options.

According to Rachel Pulley, not all plastics can be recycled. A regular recycling factory can’t recycle all plastics. Furthermore, she says if you look at the bottom of any plastic, it has a recycling symbol with a number in the middle. That stands for what kind of plastic it is.

“Not only does the waste impact our health, but also the health of this beautiful planet that we have been given,” said Rachel Pulley. “And I am a strong believer that we have to take care of it. I’m a big believer on how our trash is impacting the ocean.”

Rachel Pulley reveals that scientists only found about 1 % of the amount of plastic polluting the ocean. The rest of that 99% they believe, is either down into the depths of the ocean, or it becomes so small that they can’t find it.

“We shouldn’t be scared but rather be aware of the effects of using plastics. This isn’t me saying I’m a hundred percent zero waste. I’m just well aware of what are the things happening in our world,” Rachel Pulley said.

She adds, “People don’t realize that when you throw away trash when you put Mother Nature in a plastic bag, it can’t decompose properly. It becomes a toxic sludge that leaks into our soil. That will eventually end up in our ocean. It’s all connected.”

Zero Waste Workshops

Rachel Pulley enjoys teaching zero waste workshops because she saw the need to start educating people about the growing waste problem. She believes there is still so much to learn about how to save our planet from deteriorating.

Ultimately, Rachel Pulley says it’s figuring out what works best for you and your family. Doing the little things will add up to make a huge impact, even though it may not feel like it.

“Not only do I love zero waste and sustainability. It makes you think outside of yourself. You begin to appreciate and care for things more,” shares Rachel Pulley. “They have more value to you because they aren’t just disposable. I believe this planet and the beauty on it is a gift from God and we have been taking advantage of it for too long.”

She adds, “Living a Zero Waste Lifestyle is a beautiful journey. It’s not meant to be one of frustration; it’s meant to be one of connection, appreciation, mindfulness, and invention.” 

Bio

Rachel Pulley is an actor at heart and currently a theatre teacher. She got her degree in musical theater and planned to go back for her Masters. 

Rachel Pulley doesn’t have a formal education in Environmental studies that would lead her to the place she’s in now. Her pursuit of a Zero Waste Lifestyle is purely out of passion. 

Rachel Pulley works with a local market to do Zero Waste live videos, and she teaches Zero Waste classes as well.

The Rain Barrel Effect

http://learntruehealth.com/the-rain-barrel-effect/

Have you ever heard about the rain barrel effect? Chances are, you haven’t. Using it to analyze why we get sick, the rain barrel effect is how various factors like lifestyle, diet, and environment contribute to the improvement or deterioration of our health. My guest, Dr. Stephen Cabral wrote a book about the rain barrel effect, and that’s what we’ll dive deeper into in this episode.

Younger Years

It was a long road before Dr. Stephen Cabral became a Naturopathic, Ayurvedic, and Functional Medicine Doctor that he is today. He says it’s not always the most accessible road to get to this point.

Dr. Stephen Cabral says that when one goes into this profession, there might be a lot of times you were suffering from something and you overcame it. You discover what thing you want to share with the world. And that’s fundamentally no different for Dr. Stephen Cabral when he was 17 years old.

One morning, Dr. Stephen Cabral got up, and all his glands were swollen. He literally couldn’t walk. His heart rate was about 150 to 160 beats per minute. But doctors had no idea what was wrong with him.

Dr. Stephen Cabral’s white blood cell counts were off, but they couldn’t determine exactly what it was. This went on for a couple of years, going to a specialist after specialist and the best doctors in Boston.

The Diagnosis

Eventually, Dr. Stephen Cabral’s mother heard about an alternative medicine doctor. This person was a medical doctor, but they had training overseas and also studied acupuncture.

Dr. Stephen Cabral slowly learned about hormones of the body, food sensitivities, and his gut. He took some of that knowledge back to conventional medicine. Dr. Stephen Cabral was eventually diagnosed to have Addison’s disease.

It’s feeling like you’re living with the flu all the time. Dr. Stephen Cabral also dealt with rheumatoid arthritis coupled with type 2 diabetes. This was likely the time when the rain barrel effect started to escalate.

“My entire immune system shut down from being a stressed out as a senior in high school, and working a couple of jobs,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “But I also took 3,000 capsules of amoxicillin the previous two and a half years because of a dermatologist who thought it would be a good idea to help my skin as well.” 

Dr. Stephen Cabral gut was devastated. And it wasn’t a quick fix. It was years of figuring out what was wrong with him.

“But I can say now that I have no rheumatoid arthritis, type 2 diabetes, and Addison’s disease,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “I now have more energy and vitality than I did even as a teenager. All things are possible if you’re able to dig deep enough and figure out what’s going on.” 

Genetics Does Matter

Taking too many antibiotics can also do more harm than good. And Dr. Stephen Cabral also believes that genetics do matter. But they honestly don’t matter as much as people think they do.

“Because according to a study, 95 percent of all disease as we know it, is diet, environment, and lifestyle. Now a lot of that you can be doing well but then you take something like antibiotics, and it starts to open up the tight junctions in the gut,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. 

He adds, “When those gut junctions open up, you now allow normal proteins from the foods that you’re eating to spill into the bloodstream. And when those spill into the bloodstream, it increases the immune activity that increases inflammation. It can then create an autoimmune-based response.”

That’s why more than 90 percent of all autoimmune diseases in the U.S. and the world relate to some intestinal permeability. Dr. Stephen Cabral says sometimes; it’s only a matter of time or degree of intestinal permeability that is separating people from excellent health to potentially suffering from a disease.

What Can Be Done

Dr. Stephen Cabral says the only step that matters in the beginning. Because we see a lot of people with Hashimoto’s or rheumatoid arthritis or whatever it might be. You can do things to try to lessen the symptoms with rheumatoid, and you can do things for the inflammation. 

“You can suppress it with biological drugs. But you can die for something as simple as pneumonia. We do a lot of lab testing. You can get a lab shipped to you anywhere in the world, so you can test your intestinal permeability. We use something called an organic acid test,” advised Dr. Stephen Cabral.

The organic acid test will look at candida overgrowth and fungal overgrowth because as you’re taking antibiotics, they’re antibacterial but they’re not antifungal.

Another thing is, if you shut down stomach acid while you allow bacteria and parasites actually to go right through the stomach unabated, you can do a stool test and then if you want you could run a food sensitivity test.  If you have the data, it’s tough to refute because you’re looking at it.

Inflammation

Everyone’s worried about inflammation. But the problem is, we can’t always worry about inflammation because we have yet to figure out what’s causing the inflammation in the first place. And a lot of factors can contribute to inflammation.

“It sets the stage for the immune-based reactions; wherein inflammation can also help or hurt you by opening up those type junctions. The nice thing is, you can work on it all at once,” explains Dr. Stephen Cabral. “What we do is, we work at getting rid of the most invasion invasive pathogens.”

He adds, “We remove the H. pylori in the parasites first. Because you have to fix the stomach. So you can start digesting food again to absorb nutrients. It doesn’t all have to be supplement basis. We’re big on supplements for the first 12 weeks to maybe 16 weeks, but then we try to wean people off as their digestive system is improving.”

Once you’re able to get rid of H. pylori and the parasites, Dr. Stephen Cabral works on the SIBO, the bacterial overgrowth as well as the candida overgrowth because those can be accomplished at the same time. The gut wall is sealed and repopulates with good bacteria.

“And the reason why probiotics are not always the best idea, is because if you are to have bacterial overgrowth putting more bacteria in, it can sometimes give people a lot of brain fog, more bloating and gas,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. 

Road To Healing

Once all the bacteria or pathogens are out of the body, Dr. Stephen Cabral says the next step is to repopulate our body with healthy gut flora. One way is through Dr. Stephen Cabral’s candida and bacterial overgrowth protocol.

“We use biofilm disruptors. The way we’re able to get rid of bacteria and yeast is we have to remove the outer layer the protective layer that’s keeping it hidden. We use specific types of enzymes to dissolve the top layer,” explains Dr. Stephen Cabral. “And then you’re using natural things such as oregano. We’re doing them for 12 weeks.” 

Your whole body will heal itself. But Dr. Stephen Cabral says it still needs the raw material.

“So, we give it glutamine. We give it zinc carnosine and a little bit of the aloe vera. Other things we know that are scientifically proven to help decrease the inflammation, rebuild the gut mucosa, and then rebuild the gut lining. The predominant ones are glutamine and zinc carnosine.” 

The Right Protocol

Dr. Stephen Cabral started his protocol about a decade ago and was refined approximately five years ago. They would do iterations of different types of biofilm disruptors. Because apparently, they knew it had to be done.

“But we didn’t always know the perfect product. The nutritional supplement industry takes whatever is great right now, and it can make it better in the future. As for herbs, herbs don’t get better,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said. 

He adds, “Herbs are not going to change over the thousands of years. We still have the amazing herbs. But what can change also is the delivery method. We’re using time release capsules and different types of things that can work great with the gut and then obviously probiotics.”

Dr. Stephen Cabral believes that he’s on the right track by administering lab tests before and after. Then he goes through the protocol to make sure the body is genuinely on the road to health.

Influences From India And China

Nature gave us a very powerful medicine. And Dr. Stephen Cabral says we can use nature’s medicine which was used for thousands of years ago. There was a lot of study in India and China but also in South America. Using mainly herbs, there are different ways to get it to work. You need to make sure you follow the correct process.

Dr. Stephen Cabral says that studying in India and China influenced him significantly. He realized that there has to be an easier way. There are so many great forms of medicine, and that motivated him to travel all over the world to intern as a Naturopathic Doctor.

“As a Naturopathic Doctor, you have to specialize in something. I found that every form of medicine worked. The problem was it did not work for everyone in every circumstance,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “Every form of medicine is the best, as long as you know who to apply it with.”

By saying there is no such thing as disease, it’s not discounting what you’re currently suffering from. Ultimately, Dr. Stephen Cabral says the disease is not a real thing. The symptoms are real. We are doing ourselves a disservice by giving the disease a name which prevents us from looking at why we had the symptoms in the first place.

Recommended Diet

People diagnosed with Hashimoto’s cannot eat gluten, dairy, and beans such as coffee. Dr. Stephen Cabral says when you remove those, all of a sudden the immune system gets to calm down. And there’s no longer that immune-based response which triggers the Hashimoto’s in the first place.

“Try being gluten-free for 21 days and do a rotation diet. After 21 days, try gluten-free grains first like rice. Try white rice first or gluten-free oats. We see a noticeable change in 7 days. The reason I said 21 is to allow deep healing to sink in, decrease inflammation and deal with estrogen dominance,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral.        

Success Stories

Most of Dr. Stephen Cabral’s patients have inflammatory joint issues. But rather than helping people to lose weight, Dr. Stephen Cabral stresses the importance of getting the body to a healthy state. Because of that, it drops inflammatory levels. 

“In fact, 30% of our energy for the day goes to digestion. To get energy back, eat half a plate of vegetables, a quarter of root-based vegetables like yam and sweet potatoes. Choose the other quarter for protein,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “You may also combine food through a smoothie. It’s life changing because most people don’t drink water. Also make sure that for the first week or two, you eat cooked vegetables.”

If you have gas, bloating or digestive issues, Dr. Stephen Cabral suggests running an organic acids test. Once you’re cleared, do probiotics or fermented foods. You may not have probiotics or fermented foods if you have SIBO or bacterial overgrowth. For more recommended recipes, do check out Dr. Stephen Cabral’s website where you can download a free smoothie guide.

“You can do all the bio-hacks, but if you’re not looking for nutrition first, you’re always going to fight an uphill battle,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “We do a minimum of three consultations. Everything that is wrong with you right now is due to some deficiency or toxicity.”

He adds, “Lab tests can help. Then rebuild the body. It takes six weeks or so to remove heavy metals from the body. And it takes eight to twelve weeks to remove all the yeast overgrowth and bacterial overgrowth.”

The Rain Barrel Effect Book

The first half of The Rain Barrel Book explains how we get sick. Then Dr. Stephen Cabral explains in the second half how we can repair the body. The Rain Barrel Book is an excellent reference to learn how your body works really and it’s also available on his website.  He also has a fantastic podcast called The Cabral Concept, so I’m inviting everyone to check that out, as well as the Cabral Wellness Online Store on his official website.

But Dr. Stephen Cabral isn’t stopping there.  He said his next goal is to be able to start teaching health practitioners by the end of the year on how to repair the body. There are eight parts to Dr. Stephen Cabral de-stress protocol, and only one element is about supplements. Part of his goal is also to make lab testing accessible to everyone.

“My goal as a health practitioner is to help people finally figure out why they haven’t been able to lose the weight, get well, or find their way out of a funk in life,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “I use advanced state-of-the-art lab testing that anyone can do right at home to uncover the underlying root cause reasons holding people back from living their best life ever. I believe that anyone can get well, lose the weight, and feel alive again if they want it!” 

Bio

After almost 20 years and over 600,000 pages of research study completed, dozens of certifications in the natural health field, over 16,000 health & fitness client sessions, and a doctoral degree in Naturopathy, Dr. Stephen Cabral’s knowledge, experience, and compassion are at the top of his field. 

Dr. Stephen Cabral also spent over 5,000 hours of formal doctoral degree work, which included 2,200 hours of internships. These internships were mainly spent overseas studying the very best of natural medicine (much of which is unknown here in the US). 

His internships included studying, working, and living in clinics all around the world. This intimate setting allowed Dr. Stephen Cabral to talk in depth with the patients at these clinics and listen to their struggles and path to wellness. He also got to see first hand the remarkable recoveries these people were making. Some of these internship locations included India, Sri Lanka, China, Europe, and various practices in the US. 

Dr. Stephen Cabral has appeared in every type of media outlet as a national health & wellness consultant, as well as a contributor to MTV, Men’s Health, Women’s Day, Maxim, SELF, Diet.com, Nutrition Data, Conde Nast, and many others. He has also authored and co-authored four books and published over 1,100 articles. 

Dr. Stephen Cabral has been hired by over 300 health clubs, wellness clinics, Holistic centers, training studios, and by other health professionals to improve their training programs and services. This allows Dr. Stephen Cabral to reach more people and hopefully improve more lives by teaching the health & fitness professionals that work directly with those in need.

8. 270 What Does It Look Like To Nourish Your Body? Healing Disordered Eating, Negative Self Talk, Self Trust, Anorexia, IIN, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Becoming a Health Coach, Katy, Ashley James, Learn True Health Podcast
http://learntruehealth.libsyn.... download (audio/mpeg, 175.78Mb)

Description: Health Coach

http://learntruehealth.com/health-coach/

There are more people now consulting a Health Coach instead of a medical doctor. And for an excellent reason. You see, a Health Coach promotes natural healing for better health, in contrast to medical doctors who promote drugs for medication. Health Coach Katy has a fantastic journey on how she became a Health Coach which she shares in this episode.

Disordered Eating

Health Coach Katy recalls dealing with disordered eating as early as 13 or 14 years old. Active in theater plays, she remembers being overly concerned with the size of her body. 

Like most teenagers who go through a discovery phase, Health Coach Katy endured the fear of getting fat and the pressure of staying thin. Looking back, being thin meant good health. As she grew older, she realized that was a flawed way of thinking.

“Health to me now is feeling that I am capable and smart enough. I have enough self-love and awareness, and I can move through life freely,” said Health Coach Katy. “Eating disorders and eating control issues are all about feeling you’re not safe. You feel the need to be in control of every aspect of your life.”

Certified Yoga Instructor

Health Coach Katy has been practicing yoga for 18 years and eventually took in clients. She believes yoga significantly helped a lot as far as spiritual enlightenment is concerned.

“I am a huge believer in the laws of the universe, attraction and vibration energy. Whatever higher power is guiding you or giving you purpose, tap into those moments. For me, yoga raised my physical vibrations as well,” said Health Coach Katy.

A big part of yoga is meditation. Health Coach Katy says you have to trust yourself and get a tiny glimpse of self-awareness if you want to become a better version of you. Journaling is likewise helpful. Mostly, the key to getting out of your comfort zone has the perseverance and determination to take tiny steps forward. 

Institute For Integrative Nutrition

Enrolling herself in the Institute For Integrative Nutrition (IIN) to become a health coach happened when she was doing yoga classes. Health Coach Katy recalls that within four weeks, she chanced upon three women taking about IIN and their career as a Health Coach.

She was depressed during that time in her life. But after hearing those women talk about their work as a health coach, it motivated Health Coach Katy to sign up for classes herself. Health Coach Katy honestly felt that her spiritual practice complements with IIN.

“I did the course between November 2016 to 2017. Being able to step away from that world of being pressured to be thin has been important to me. Sometimes we need to step away from environments that are not supporting us,” said Health Coach Katy. 

She adds, “It’s amazing that nutrition is one tiny rubric in all of med school. Modern healthcare is not set up for someone who can go to their doctor and sit with them for an hour plus every other week and talk about stress and sugar.”

Purpose Of A Health Coach

A career as a Health Coach is rapidly gaining popularity in the recent years, especially now that more people are getting very conscious about achieving better health. Aside from Health Coaches, Health Coach Katy says people in functional medicine practices, and chiropractic practices are also getting hired a lot because people are clamoring for accountability and mentorship.

“Whatever goal someone has, to begin with, it’s enough to get them at the door. It’s enough to get a dialogue started. But usually, it’s something way bigger and something much deeper,” said Health Coach Katy.

She also says there’s a lot of forgiveness and self-love in changing your habits because you have to realize that to forgive yourself and move on. And having a Health Coach or mentor to encourage you helps. 

Fulfillment As A Health Coach

Becoming Health Coach after graduating from IIN proved to be the right career path for Health Coach Katy. The job is fulfilling. She eventually learned that the more you give people space to share, work something out, and talk it out, the transformation is smoother. Ultimately, Health Coach Katy says it’s really about the other person’s story and their journey.

“All you need to know about running the business is all the program. And it’s designed to guide you step by step,” said Health Coach Katy. “You can monetize that passion if you allow the program to steer it. And find your unique voice as well as your unique brand.”

Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Sometimes, change is better. And when we recognize that we need change, some people hesitate to take that next step because of the fear of the unknown. But Health Coach Katy there is nothing to be afraid of, just as long as we are aware of our boundaries.

One way of identifying your boundaries is learning to talk to yourself. Health Coach Katy advises closing the door on something that’s not you. Choose a boundary. If you are around people who are obsessed with a diet or negative people, you must realize that it’s okay. You don’t have to match with people who aren’t aligned with your growth.

Health Coach Katy also says that people do the best they can with the tools they have. Understandably, there will always be a sense of nervousness if you decide to change for the first time. Sometimes change in any way can also be very frightening for the people around you. It’s not necessarily their truth but rather their reaction. 

“Every time you do a really small action step, you commit to something. You can have a goal even in health coaching. A client comes to you with a goal and most often it’s a physical reason,” explains Health Coach Katy. 

She further says, “When you commit yourself to grow or commit to something that’s challenging, you get to the heart of what was dying to come out. And for me, that was binary and disordered mindset around nourishment.”

Helping Others

Health Coach Katy considers it a playful nudge whenever she has a client with a goal that is something she is also thinking about a lot or working through. She believes that keeps her growing as a coach because she is continuously learning from clients.

“Once you can help people unpack those whys, clarity can occur. You’re overcompensating in other areas of your life because you feel like you’re not heard over big things in your life,” says Health Coach Katy. “You don’t need to be in control of everything. It will work out. Your body knows what to do, you know what to do, and your spirit knows what to do.”

Words Of Wisdom

Health Coach Katy believes that there’s something in all of us that needs to heal. There are things in our lives that instantly bring a short amount of pleasure. But what we need to ponder on is knowing what do those pleasures mean long-term to us. It most likely signifies that we should have a new habit.

She also says that we are constantly bombarded with messages from marketing campaigns and media. Our economy is also so driven by us, and that can be consuming. In the end, we consciously buy this lie, and we almost go about it robotically because you can’t help but take these messages in. Ultimately, it’s all about self-love, self-awareness and the commitment for us to see change within ourselves. 

“You have to put the work in. There is no magic pill, no magic piece of paper. You have to set your intention, make those action steps and work for it. The more you put into it, the more you get out,” said Health Coach Katy. 

Bio

Health Coach Katy is a certified yoga instructor (RYT200), and graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She is passionate about women’s health, self-love, empowerment, and accountability. 

Health Coach Katy’s mission is to create a space for women to remember their power. She wants all women to refuse cultural norms that enforce disordered eating, negative self-talk, and fear. Health Coach Katy believes women should all embrace individuality and reclaim their unique ability to nourish themselves beautifully.

Ketosis

http://learntruehealth.com/ketosis/

Ketosis is the body’s fantastic way to burn fat naturally. One way to achieve this is through the ketogenic diet. If you recall, I recently had Dr. Darren Schmidt who talked about the cause of all diseases in a past episode. And he’s back to teach us how ketosis and fasting can produce significant health benefits as well.

Healing Tools

First of all, Dr. Darren Schmidt says fasting helps break down and remove pathogenic materials.  There have been cases wherein tumors melt away and it proves that food is indeed a big health tool for healing.

One tool I also like to use is using my Sunlighten Sauna.  I had an episode discussing the benefits of saunas, so I’m inviting everyone to check out that episode. Dr. Darren Schmidt, on the other hand, has this to say on how our body heals from a disease.

“There is a drug that drops lactate in the blood or lactic acid. Research shows it doesn’t heal the body. Since 1924, they found other poisons that build up and cause infected blood and organs get sick,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. “You repair organs through detox or eating organs or plants. The solution is natural. No therapy or drug can fix lactic acidosis other than Mother Nature.”

When A Ketogenic Diet Isn’t Ideal

I’ve always said that there is no one diet tailor-made for everyone. For the ketogenic diet, in particular, Dr. Darren Schmidt says this diet is not advisable for people with candida, mold, yeast, or a collection of organisms in the body.

“This is because organisms can live off sugar and ketones. So I recommend a low carb diet, but they’re not in ketosis,” Dr. Darren Schmidt said. “I have cancer patients who do a 5-day fast. And between the fasting, they eat lots of calories to gain the weight back. It is not meant for everyone.” 

How To Get Into Ketosis

There are three ways to get into ketosis.  Dr. Darren Schmidt says you can achieve it through a ketogenic diet, fasting, or modifying the fast by eating some oils and low carb plants.

This is because ketones have been shown to detox cancer cells or kill cancer cells, as well as hormonal control. It lowers insulin and cortisol, raises testosterone for men and normalizes hormones for women. Generally, it also makes people sleep better.

Dr. Darren Schmidt reveals that ketosis can also reverse type 2 diabetes and stops lactic acidosis. It prevents the body from making the waste products from carbohydrate metabolism.

“Those waste products are the things that create chronic disease including weak ligaments and many other diseases,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. “For maintenance, Thomas Seyfried, a cancer researcher said that everybody should do a one week fast per year. No food, just water, and salt. If that is not possible, at least get into ketosis four times a year for a few days.”

How The Body Burns Fats

According to Dr. Darren Schmidt, there are times when there is no food, so the body starts to burn the fats. It also burns away pathological tissues. Fibroids, cysts, and cancer cells also go away with ketosis.

“Your body cleans itself out. Beyond 40 days, the body will be done burning fat and starts to go into burning muscle,” explains Dr. Darren Schmidt. “Ketosis saturates your body with fat, your blood is filled with fat, and there’s no sugar. So, your cells have to start burning the fat away, cleans up your organs and get rid of inflammation. Sugar causes inflammation.” 

He adds, “The more healthy fats you eat, the fewer calories you end up eating. Dense nutrients come from the liver, other organ meats, and vegetables from home-grown organic gardens. It’s a combination of plants and animals.”

Success Ratio Of Fasting

Dr. Darren Schmidt shares there were fasting clinics across the United States that the federal government shut down between 1912 and 1920. The fasting clinics were successful in treating epilepsy because ketosis is excellent for that. So, doctors eventually created the ketogenic diet. But during that time, they called it the diet that mimics fasting.

“Protein and carb burn the same way in the body. But clinically, they act the same way. They show up in the blood together as sugar,” Dr. Darren Schmidt explains. “If you increase your fat and lower your protein and carbs to a 3 to 1 ratio, you’ll go deeper into ketosis. And you can do a 4 to 1 ratio. I’ve had cancer patients do that.”

Dr. Darren Schmidt also says that if you’re overweight and relatively healthy, a 2 to 1 ratio will work out well. It will help you lose weight faster but make sure to get enough salt intake like Himalayan rock salt. Because initial weight loss is water and your body urinates out the potassium and other minerals.

“Take in more minerals and come out of ketosis after 3 or 4 weeks. At the most, do a 1 to 2 ratio. One gram of fat to two grams of protein plus carb. A 1 to 2 ratio, in my opinion, is the maximum that you want to go into sugar burning,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt.

Recommended Foods

Most meat is not ketogenic, but Dr. Darren Schmidt advises that if you add butter to it or extra oil, the meal becomes ketogenic. You can also opt for a not very ketogenic breakfast and have a very ketogenic lunch and dinner. The time frame makes a significant difference. 

“The one meat that I found is ketogenic is pork bacon. But the bigger picture is not necessary to achieve ketosis. The bigger picture is to achieve it and go into sugar-burning and fat-burning,” Dr. Darren Schmidt said. “That’s called keto-adaptation. You can get into ketosis in a day by not eating or changing your diet.”

Dr. Darren Schmidt explains that this also means your mitochondria is like 3,000 per cell. Mitochondria adapt very quickly to your diet and physical needs. Whereas sick cells are not able to adjust like that, so keto-adaptation is the ultimate goal. 

Duration Of Ketosis

For severe cases like health issues with our arteries, Dr. Darren Schmidt recommends doing ketosis nine days out of 10.  days a month, you’ll be burning sugar, and burning fat on other days. He also says some people do a mild ketosis 24 hours a day every day for a long time. Everybody is different, so the duration is a case-to-case basis. 

“If somebody is relatively healthy, but they have concerns about being pre-diabetic, has fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, or depression, they should do five days of ketosis. Plus, two days out of ketosis,” advises Dr. Darren Schmidt. “If somebody is healthy and wants to maintain health, do 5-day ketosis for a month. The spend the rest of the month eating low carbs with a 1 to a 1.5 ratio.”

Dr. Darren Schmidt also clarifies that if somebody is not interested in health, and just wants do the bare minimum, they can do ketosis four times a year.

Vegan Versus Ketosis

There have been many studies comparing the differences and similarities between veganism and ketosis. Dr. Darren Schmidt shares that the Public Health Collaboration, an organization based in the United Kingdom, has conducted many studies on health care.

“The score is 31 to 0. Low carbs win over low fat. But there’s no study comparing the two, that says low fat is better,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. 

He adds, “I think veganism is just like ketosis. You do it for a short period. Because when you come out of a fast or ketosis, burning sugar becomes very therapeutic. Just like going into ketosis, burning fat becomes very therapeutic.”

Personal Favorites

Dr. Darren Schmidt personally prefers eating salad with olive oil. He’s also learning to like avocado more now. His salads primarily have radishes and cheese. Although cheese is not keto, Dr. Darren Schmidt advises everyone to read the label of food products.

Dr. Darren Schmidt also eats a lot of olives, although olives are also not keto. His other favorite foods are walnuts and chia seeds. Incidentally, chia seeds have a 6 to 1 ratio of fat versus proteins plus carbs.

He also adds that there’s a difference with types of oils to different people. This also goes for fermented foods.  Ultimately, figure out what works for your body.

I make yummy chia pudding with canned coconut cream. To add flavor, I mix in frozen blueberries and sometimes put stevia and put in in the fridge to chill.  It’s so rich in omegas, high in fiber and fat as well.

There’s also a keto chocolate pudding which we call it ice cream at home. It’s delicious and healthy!

Easing Into Ketosis

Dr. Darren Schmidt says the first step for this whole process increases the healthy fats. Then in a few days, you’ll end up eating less food. Going low carb from there is easy. 

“Toxins are in those fat cells. Out goes the toxins and liver have to take care of it. That’s when a detox would work. Ketosis is the foundation of detox,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. “If you go into ketosis and you feel bad and tired, give the body a break. Then do it again.” 

He adds, “When you do it over and over, you get more benefit and less keto flu. And more detox is happening; the body is getting cleaned out that way. That’s the deal with keto flu. It’s toxicity coming out.”

Dry Fast

Like any other diets or fasting, some find dry fast to be useful, but it’s also not for everyone. Water can bring down ketosis. And there have been studies showing when your body needs to make water, it grabs the hydrogen from fat and attaches to oxygen and makes its water.

“But with any fasting, do it gradually. Fasting gets easier over time. Bottomline, when you do ketosis naturally, your insulin comes down along with a lot of other things. Other hormones go down, and inflammation goes down,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt.

Dr. Darren Schmidt also cautions again using statin drugs.  You have to understand why and how your body runs to eat the right way. It’s also best to hire a health professional to guide you through your diet or fasting.

Anti-viral And Anti-fungal Diet

Dr. Darren Schmidt reveals that viruses love arginine. And lysine kills them. There are also some foods that have too much arginine compared to lysine, and they feed the virus.

“Nuts are notorious for having lots of arginines compared to lysine. And they are feeding a virus. So avoid arginine food and take supplements,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. “As for the anti-fungal diet, my favorite anti-fungal diet is restrictive for the first 30 days. It’s meat, vegetables, and oil.” 

He adds, “On the following 30 days, you can add in some food. The third phase involves foods to avoid until the whole thing is done. Restrictions include no wheat, no grains, no dairy, no fermented vegetables, no condiments, vinegar nor sugar. Meat also can’t be processed.” 

Whole 30 Diet

This diet teaches you what food your body likes. Dr. Darren Schmidt says it is perfect for somebody who is new to dieting. It is very regimented, so when people go back to eating some foods, they can readily feel a difference. Overall, the basic rule is to consume excellent quality food.

“Even if you’re eating the best and healthiest food, give your body a break. Do a short fast. And get your nutrients by recycling the fats that get stuck in the body for so long,” advises Dr. Darren Schmidt.

 Bio

Dr. Darren Schmidt, D.C. has been in practice since 1997, immediately focusing on hardcore holistic nutrition, herbology, and homeopathy. He graduated from the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, IL. 

Dr. Darren Schmidt has been in Ann Arbor, Michigan since 2000 establishing one of the larger nutrition practices in the country with multiple practitioners of various licenses but the same purpose and similar techniques. He taught for a nutrition training company for eight years, teaching 77-weekend seminars on muscle testing, clinical nutrition, and healing protocols. 

In January of 2016, Dr. Darren Schmidt was unknowingly chronically exposed to toxic black mold which caused life-threatening symptoms. After two days of taking nutritional products that were developed in 1934, he felt better and dove into the formulator’s articles to discover what he knew that was life-saving 82 years later. 

What was discovered was Nutritional Deficiency Lactic Acidosis, the most common mechanism of chronic disease. It was commonly known by all doctors from 1920 through 1960, then forgotten. 

Dr. Darren Schmidt also co-founded The Good Fat Company which makes the Good Fat Bar help people get into ketosis. He also co-founded Power Nutrition Practice, a training company for nutrition practitioners including clinical and business education.

Mind-Body Connection

http://learntruehealth.com/mind-body-connection-for-healing/

People don’t realize that our mind-body connection plays a significant role in healing. I’ve always said in past episodes that true health is beyond the physical aspect. And more studies have supported the fact that focusing on mind-body connection do wonders for our health.  To explain more about the mind-body connection, I have award-winning Nutritional Therapist Niki Gratrix in today’s episode.

Shifting Careers

Niki Gratrix was previously into banking and finance. But because she had an interest in gaining knowledge about the mind-body connection, she felt the need to have a career shift.

The opportunity came around fifteen years ago when Niki Gratrix met her partner who also became her business partner. Her business partner had been suffering severely from chronic fatigue syndrome for seven years, where he was bed-ridden for two of those years.

“He recovered when I met him, and I was relaunching my career. I was starting to train at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, one of top Nutrition schools in the U.K,” shares Niki Gratrix. “My partner is a psychology practitioner. We co-founded a clinic together, focusing on people with fatigue issues.” 

She adds, “We realized most illnesses have a significant emotional component. When that is unaddressed, you don’t get any results.”

Niki Gratrix eventually won awards for her work and even got published in a British Medical Journal Open in 2012. The published paper states there is indeed a significant improvement and better results than some of the standard conventional interventions for chronic fatigue.

Moving On

The next stage of the clinic involved a randomized, controlled trial. Niki Gratrix was always extremely motivated in learning about psychology consciousness and the mind-body connection.

So even if she did Nutrition, Niki Gratrix swapped over to integrate everything. She acquired training in NLP, emotional freedom technique and energy medicine-related intervention for the emotional side as well.

Five years after co-founding the clinic, Niki Gratrix moved on and got interested in energy medicine. This is because she is always looking for a new modality. She eventually got into running the Abundant Energy Summit in 2015, which was the largest online summit on overcoming chronic fatigue. 

NES Health

Niki Gratrix was also interested in bioenergetics, which is the study of energy in living organisms. She has a system that assesses and scans the energy field and energetics of the body. Primarily, the system helps optimize the body and make organs work better.

The NES Health, the organization that Niki Gratrix is connected with, primarily focuses on bioenergetics. NES meant Nutri-Energetic System and was co-founded by Harry Massey in 2000.

Incidentally, Harry Massey suffered from chronic fatigue and was bed-ridden for seven long years. Harry Massey’s co-founder Peter Fraser, was an acupuncture expert from Australia. Peter Fraser was the one who brought acupuncture into Australia after researching extensively on Chinese medicine. 

“Anytime you’re doing something that works with the energy field of the body, essentially that is bio-energetic medicine,” said Niki Gratrix. “We don’t think about energetics and mind-body connection enough when it comes to healing the physical body, yet the mind and body are truly one thing.” 

She adds, “So what’s happening for you psycho-emotionally, is going to get translated into physical expression. I reset the nervous system and the immune system. Minute by minute, you can change the way your genes are expressing epigenetically by the way you think and feel.”

Adverse Childhood Events

If anybody has doubts whether your emotional state impacts your physiology, Niki Gratrix says there’s a significant study that doesn’t get enough exposure, called the adverse childhood events study.

The adverse childhood events study was a study of over 17,000 people done by the CDC and Kaiser Permanente. The study discovered that 67% of all people had one adverse childhood event. 

“If you had a high level of an adverse childhood event, you have an increased risk of seven out of top ten causes of death. Then if you have a moderate level like six adverse childhood events, you have a 20-year reduction in lifespan,” shares Niki Gratrix. 

“You have a 400% increase of depression, Alzheimer’s and dementia if you have four adverse childhood events,” Niki Gratrix enumerates. “Plus, a chance of getting chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. If you have eight adverse childhood events, you have three times the risk of heart disease, and triple the risk of lung cancer.”

Autoimmunity

Niki Gratrix says autoimmunity is strongly co-related, like smoking and lung cancer for women. She says there’s a study that has ten categories and they look at things like parents separating or divorce. Some other factors are also taken into consideration like physical, sexual or emotional abuse, physical or emotional neglect, domestic violence, incarceration by a family member and substance abuse.

“When we talk about emotional neglect and emotional trauma, this is subtle. And yet it can be devastating. Your stress levels directly impact your biology, and your system is reset,” explains Niki Gratrix. “Once you get into adulthood, there might be another trigger. But actually, it has already started 20 to 30 years before that.” 

Understanding Trauma

According to Niki Gratrix, if there is a singular event, we’re likely to develop a post-traumatic stress disorder. And there’s a lot of technique out there to cure that.

“But the most emotional trauma isn’t from a single event. It’s relational trauma and has something to do with our relations with other people,” said Niki Gratrix. “It’s really when were not seen or heard. When that isn’t there in childhood, that trumps the event. And what trumps the event is developmental trauma.” 

Furthermore, Niki Gratrix says that when you have that type of change, it leads to symptoms of things like perfectionism and lots of self-care. A lack of feeling of safety in the body can also lead to a sense of shame.

All the addictions come from this as well. Because of all that, Niki Gratrix says it’s probably also one of the underlying causes of mental disorders like depression, anxiety and bipolar.

Cultural Link

We often don’t talk about the cultural aspect of illness. But Niki Gratrix says the culture has a profound impact on our physical health. For example, third generation survivors of the Holocaust victims have the same physiological and psychological expressions of their grandparents. The trauma is inherited, and you’ll see this where there are war and famine.

“The stigma of an illness like beliefs of the conventional medicine system around chronic complex illness has a profound impact on the person. That kind of social stigma suppresses your immune system. And studies show you’re most likely to die from it,” Niki Gratrix said.

Social Support

Niki Gratrix also relates that there is a massive study done on over three hundred thousand people, showing that social support is a more significant predictor of survival than your body mass index, and factors like how much you smoked or how much exercise you did.

She says social exclusion, feeling alienated, rejected, and unlovable, can make us start to deteriorate physically. It does have a massive physical impact on our health. The interesting factor is, Niki Gratrix says other people can be the most damaging thing, yet they can also be the healer as well. Indeed, the power of other people has been profoundly underestimated.

“Part of recovery and improvement is a release of certain people that are not supportive and toxic. There’s often a journey that people need to go through to release lower energetic vibrating people. Otherwise, we’re not going to get to a full health potential,” said Niki Gratrix.

Impact Of Stress

If you look at stress physiology, it does have a strong mind-body connection. Stress affects everything in the body. Niki Gratrix says it resets the stress systems, so you have a low threshold response.

“The brain changes. It goes into a state where it is more easily triggered,” explains Niki Gratrix. “The autonomic nervous systems get upregulated at the cost of this parasympathetic side of the nervous system. And the parasympathetic side is the rest, digest, detoxify, feed and breathe side.” 

She adds, “When somebody is in stress, what’s going on in the brain will translate into the gut. Stress changes the bacteria in the gut and leads to intestinal issues. When we have stress and trauma in childhood, we often lose our boundaries because the immune system is mirroring your emotional place.”

Niki Gratrix also mentions that there is a research about the cell danger response. It shows that the mitochondria also had a defense job. They are part of the immune system, and if they sense stress and threat, they will just shut down energy production. People who wrote the paper even said that early life stress could trigger it.

Practical Solution

Niki Gratrix assures everyone that for every problem, there is a solution. Mostly, the goal is not to lose hope. If you want to have optimal energy and optimal health, make sure you are healing and not in a chronic stress state.

If you already had a nervous system reset from childhood or living a life of high stress, all of it is directly preventing optimum health. But if you want to stay in a healthy state of mind and energy, you can take steps to trigger a possible healing state.

Niki Gratrix explains that the techniques to get into that healing state varies from person to person. Just talking to somebody can be a stress release. Journaling also helps. There are also biochemical interventions you can do.

“Eating a diet for balancing blood sugar can eradicate half the anxiety problems. And eating enough protein, cutting out starch, carbs and overly sweet things can rebalance the nervous system,” advises Niki Gratrix.

She also strongly advises going to bed at 9:30 pm. According to Niki Gratrix, it changed the life of so many of her clients. Like many experts I have interviewed, Niki Gratrix is also against using gadgets and wi-fi devices before going to sleep. She recommends blue light blocker glasses to aid you in going into a destimulating state.

Apart from getting enough sleep, Niki Gratrix also encourages people to learn deep breathing exercises, yoga, and exercise.  Having positive social relations and affirmation also helps. Other helpful solutions are laughing, journaling, singing, meditation, cold showers, eating green leafy vegetables. You can also learn emotional freedom techniques, enjoy nature, do water therapy, Tai chi, and use essential oils.

“The higher the emotional state you’re in, the higher the heart rate. Set your intentions how you want to feel for the rest of the day,” said Niki Gratrix. “Have a positive visualization. Because a lot of people don’t take action needed. They don’t commit, so they don’t get better.” 

Bio

Niki Gratrix is an award-winning nutritional therapist, bioenergetic and psychology practitioner, helping people to optimize energy and overcome emotional stress and trauma. In 2005 she co-founded one of the largest mind-body clinics in integrative medicine in the UK with patients in 35 countries where she worked as Director of Nutrition until 2010. The clinic specialized in treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME. 

The results with patients at the clinic on the nutrition protocol she designed were later published as a preliminary study in 2012 in the British Medical Journal Open. In August 2015, she hosted the largest ever free online health summit on overcoming fatigue interviewing 29 world leading experts on optimizing energy with over 30,000 attendees. 

Niki Gratrix has spoken on over 25 online health summits and been the keynote speaker at live conferences internationally. She writes regularly for a range of health magazines in both the UK and the US.

Genetics

http://learntruehealth.com/genetics/

Genetics plays a significant role in determining if we’re healthy or not. We commonly think that diet and lifestyle are the answers to good health, but these are only two components of true health. Sarah Kostusiak, my guest today, has survived through a lot of health issues. So, we’re going to dive in today on how genetics is linked to our health.

Early Years

Sarah Kostusiak started to deal with blood sugar issues as early as five years old. Coping with it throughout her childhood, her health went from bad to worse when she got so sick in college.

No doctor could pinpoint what was wrong with her. So, at 19 years old, Sarah Kostusiak started a food journal. She initially thought the red meat was the culprit. In an attempt to improve her health, Sarah Kostusiak went vegetarian for ten years.  However, being a vegetarian increased her blood sugar issues.

Looking back, Sarah Kostusiak felt that it was probably to gluten sensitivity. Fast forward years later, Sarah Kostusiak was also diagnosed with active reflux, GERD, and even had secondary infertility in 2010. After two kids, she ended up losing a pregnancy at 16 weeks.

Finding A Cure

Sarah Kostusiak realized that her body was tired, making it hard to heal. In an attempt to find a cure, she even went to a nutritionist who advised her to kick out gluten. Aside from that, Sarah Kostusiak also tried to eat fermented foods and adopted a paleo diet.

But things weren’t improving. She got sick to the point that she couldn’t sit up. It was disempowering. That’s why Sarah Kostusiak remained determined to keep looking for a cure and vowed to use her knowledge to help others eventually.  

Discovering Genetics

Sarah Kostusiak researched genetics and controlling blood sugar levels.  This was during the time that she also dealt with a new health situation wherein she ended up having surgery to have her gallbladder taken out.

“That was causing a level of inflammation in my body. I couldn’t control through food anymore because of gluten other factors. Top it off; I also had gallstones,” shares Sarah Kostusiak.

Ongoing Health Issues

Sixteen years before her surgery, Sarah Kostusiak says she was told that she had too much acid. So, she was also on acid blockers for a few years.

“But I think food sensitivity, a lot of good biomes and digestive enzymes probably caused the inflammation in the gallbladder. Plus, I also had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) issues,” said Sarah Kostusiak. 

That’s not all. Sarah Kostusiak also revealed that during this time, she started to have massive breakouts of acne on her face. Doctors then decided to put her on antibiotics for six months. 

“Looking back, when I eat gluten, my body gets a rash or zits. I increased my wheat consumption because I was avoiding meat. But I ended up with candida issues from the antibiotics. Then I had to deal with acid reflux,” said Sarah Kostusiak.

Taking Out Gluten

Sarah Kostusiak looked at her health history and worked backward. She said taking out gluten made a difference.

“Candida is also caused when you eat yeast. Many gluten-free products aren’t healthy,” Sarah Kostusiak said. “I would still get health issues, but once I dug into my genetics and looked at my history, I even had to lay off fermented foods.” 

Genetic Testing

For determining genetics, Sarah Kostusiak uses Ancestry DNA or 23andMe. But she prefers Ancestry DNA nowadays. Because apart from being able to download the data, Ancestry DNA can show you the which genes have a nutritional impact. 

“If they test my blood, it’s usually very high because I’m not processing it out. So I take methylated vitamins to support my body that way. And I also remove the histamine-rich foods,” reveals Sarah Kostusiak. 

Genes indeed play a significant role in health. I interviewed an author who wrote the book Dirty Genes. The author, Dr. Ben Lynch, talks about the different things you can do naturally to clean the genes, so your body run more efficiently.

“Genetics can give me a clue on what your base. Epigenetics, environment, lifestyle, and diet affect genes. Not all genes can be affected epigenetically. Genetics is the key to see what’s going on in the body,” said Sarah Kostusiak.

Current Diet

Sarah Kostusiak has gone grain-free and leans towards a low-carb or ketogenic diet. This way, she can control her blood sugar levels.

“I believe that blood sugar levels being high, leads to inflammation in the body. So, if I can control my insulin response, then I’m going to reduce my inflammation in my body,” said Sarah Kostusiak.

She adds, “Supporting my body nutritionally and through supplements helps make me much more stable. I started to supplement my body with methylated b vitamins and folinic acid. Getting the sugar and grains out also helped improve my mental clarity, focus, and energy.”

Keto Diet

Sarah Kostusiak is working on a detox program now and is more into whole foods. She says it is also essential for her to make an effort to stick to a keto diet even on weekends. Mostly, she says you have to make mindset switch that this is your way of life.

My husband and I had tried the keto diet for two and a half years before we shifted to paleo. I had had a low carb diet, took supplements and ate whole foods to reverse my type 2 diabetes. Grains and sugar are non-existent in my diet, and I stay away from corn aside from being gluten-free and dairy-free.

But then we had extensive bloodwork done in January this year, and it was an eye-opener. Tests showed that our kidneys were damaged, as well as our liver and heart. That’s why my husband and I decided that it was time to stop doing the keto diet.

“I eat fruits now. The keto has its healing effects and has its place in specific situations. Do the keto with a health coach or a Naturopath to monitor it. You can lose many pounds of muscle mass if done incorrectly,” said Sarah Kostusiak.

Prostate Cancer

Sarah Kostusiak has dealt with many patients who have prostate cancer. To prepare for surgery, she helps them lose weight to recover better after surgery.

“Cancer ferments sugar for fuel. By removing the sugars and carbs, which converts to sugar in the body especially refined carbs, that makes someone a fat burner,” explains Sarah Kostusiak.

She adds, “The body will then produce ketones. I can help the person by not encouraging any more growth of cancer. And make them feel better by creating ketones in their body to give them more energy and clarity.”

Sarah Kostusiak usually monitors her clients every two weeks and checks on their muscle mass, body fat, and water weight.  She discusses problems with them and looks at their macronutrients as well. Sarah Kostusiak monitors them once a month after that.

Cause Of Prostate Cancer

There are a lot of factors that cause cancer. Sarah Kostusiak says that toxin exposure like roundup is a significant factor.  She also deals with clients with infertility issues which can sometimes be linked to the standard American diet.

“Get sugars under control. A large belly is a sign of insulin resistance, and fat tends to be stored in the torso,” Sarah Kostusiak explains. “The fat cells not only hold fat. They hold hormones and toxins. Especially for men, those hormones can be released and convert testosterone to estrogen which can contribute to prostate cancer.”

Intermittent Fasting

Once Sarah Kostusiak sees there is progress in a client, she recommends them to go into keto. Because the next step is knowing how to get their protein at the right amount. She says people tend to overeat protein. So, protein levels have to be monitored.

“I have some keto-vegetarian clients. My focus is to make sure they are getting protein. Because you need enough protein to protect your muscle mass. But too much is going to kick you out of ketosis, can convert to sugars and do the opposite things,” said Sarah Kostusiak.

Sarah Kostusiak has genetic mutations which make her sensitive to proteins. If she watches her protein intake, she can lose weight. Otherwise, it would be hard to do so.

Most of the time, Sarah Kostusiak gets her clients to eat a couple of hard-boiled eggs throughout the day.  Their diet also includes some sources of nutritional yeast, protein powder, cottage cheese, paneer or Greek yogurt.

Essentially, Sarah Kostusiak suggests that her clients go higher on the carbs. She says 45 to 50 grams of carbs will keep them in the fat burning zone.

Diet Considerations

Four years ago, Sarah Kostusiak went into premature menopause. She had metabolic syndrome, and her insulin was off the charts. But nobody believed she was having blood sugar problems because her tests would always be normal. Fortunately, her blood sugar levels are now ideal ever since she watches what she eats.

“I am experimenting by adding fruit and rice to my diet. This way, I can gauge what can my body handle now that I reversed my insulin resistance,” Sarah Kostusiak said.

She adds, “You can’t choose one diet. One diet isn’t going to last you your whole life. You must listen to your body. If you don’t listen to your hunger hormones, you’ll be in the same place as you were before.”

Sarah Kostusiak also advises making sure you are getting the right food to supplement your body. Try different types of diet but do it with the help of a health coach. Sarah Kostusiak also eats cabbage at least once a week. She says the fiber rebuilds the gut bacteria.

“Cut out different foods to see what foods you are sensitive to. Then re-introduce foods slowly. Watch the carbs and try to eat three to four cups of veggies daily,” said Sarah Kostusiak. “Listen to your body by cutting out dairy, grains, sugar, alcohol, and legumes. Then on days 31 to 45, introduce slowly again and see how your body reacts.”

Being Present

Stress is another common reason why our health is in bad shape. Apart from stress, Sarah Kostusiak advises that everyone must know where your food comes from.

“Quality of food matters. Health is not just diet. Diet is just one part. Get enough sleep, take the right supplements for your body, look at the genetics and manage stress,” advises Sarah Kostusiak.

She adds, “Histamine is a genetic component towards sleep. For example, wine keeps me awake. And that’s knowing my body. Be present and eat mindfully. Mind what is going on. Go for a walk, get a hobby, or do something with friends. Let work stay at work.”

Sarah Kostusiak also suggests getting tested regularly. The organic acid test, in particular, is a urine test that can tell us compounds in the urine that are produced during daily metabolism.  It can identify health issues like leaky gut, candida, mitochondrial issues and a lot of extra information.

Shopping For Food

Sarah Kostusiak says she doesn’t have time to follow a recipe. But generally, she tends to cook keto recipes at home. She knows her kids’ genes and how they react. Grains are allowed to be eaten whether they are out, but she mainly serves gluten-free dishes at home.

Whenever she goes to the grocery, her list would usually include fresh produce, high-quality protein like chicken or turkey breast, and healthy fats like organic cheese, avocados, coconut oil, and avocado oil. And although she includes bacon in her list, she doesn’t do high fat.

Life, Love And Thyme Blog

Sarah Kostusiak’s blog is such a delight! It’s packed with a wealth of health information, diet tips, activities with kids and gardening.  It’s been up for the past five years and is planning to put more recipes and videos on the blog so definitely check it out. 

Bio

Sarah Kostusiak was born in Indianapolis, IN, but got to Texas as quickly as she could. She was a teacher for 14 years before staying home for nine years to raise her three children. 

Sarah Kostusiak spent her life being blown off by mainstream medicine because her symptoms didn’t fit their definition of disease. After years of struggling with IBS, GERD and Gallbladder issues she has discovered that a gluten sensitivity plus Candida are at the core of her health issues. 

In 2016, Sarah Kostusiak became a Certified Health Coach. She knew that there was a way to figure out her health issues and help others figure out theirs. Currently, she is working toward a Masters’ Degree in Health and Nutrition Education.

The Importance Of Vitamin K2

http://learntruehealth.com/vitamin-k2/

Did you know that vitamin K2 is found in chlorella? In our previous episode, we talked extensively about why chlorella and spirulina are superfoods. This time around, Catharine Arnston is back with us to talk more about where we can get our daily requirement of vitamin K2 and how it benefits our health.

Origins of Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 prevents heart disease and helps develop healthy bones. But apparently, vitamin K2 isn’t found in a lot of foods. In fact, Catharine Arnston says that aside from chlorella containing vitamin K2, this wonder vitamin is only found in grass-fed protein or dairy. It is also found in natto, a Japanese food which has the highest concentration of vitamin K2.

“Up until the 50s, cattle were all raised in pastures. Grass and green things have chlorophyll and vitamin K1. Vitamin K1 is known for its blood clotting benefits,” shares Catharine Arnston. “Only animals have in their gut, a bacteria that converts K1 from the grass into K2. And when we consume dairy to absorb the animal protein from a grass-fed animal, we then absorb vitamin K2.” 

But Catharine Arnston says the farmers soon discovered, that if they added vitamin D and vitamin A to the feed of the cattle, they could move them inside in tiny enclosures, feed them corn and fatten them up.

As a result, during the 1960s onward, vitamin K2 eventually became non-existent in most people’s diets. Reported cases of osteoporosis and heart disease also started increasing.

Link Between Calcium And Vitamin K2

Catharine Arnston explains that when you eat dairy of any kind, it contains calcium. The calcium is supposed to go to your bones and helps cells continuously regenerate. And although vitamin D helps with absorptions, the missing link is vitamin K2.

“Vitamin K2 does two things. It releases a protein called osteocalcin which helps your bones absorb the calcium and releases a protein called matrix GLA protein which prevents the calcium from moving into your blood vessels, skin, and brain. It moves it out of places it shouldn’t be and puts it where it should be,” said Catharine Arnston.

Furthermore, Catharine Arnston says cholesterol does not primarily cause heart disease. Instead, it is caused by having too much calcium in blood vessels. And without vitamin K2, all those calcium supplements, as well as all the calcium, moves into your blood vessels and not your bones.

To know more about vitamin K2, Catharine Arnston highly recommends the book called Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox by Kate Rheaume-Bleue. Kate Rheaume-Bleue is a Canadian Naturopathic doctor and clearly explains everything you need to know about vitamin K2.

More people realize that vitamin K2 is the essential thing in your diet especially those aged 30 years old and above. The book also makes us aware that accumulating all that calcium gathers in your bloodstream and may lead to heart attack.

“The best source of vitamin K2 is always from nature. I had our algae tested in February. One or two servings of chlorella is sufficient for vitamin K2 requirement,” said Catharine Arnston. “It prevents calcium flowing in the bloodstream and reverses it. So to those with high blood pressure or if you’re a candidate for heart attack, get up to four servings of chlorella.” 

Best Diet

But taking chlorella and spirulina isn’t going to be as effective if you don’t practice a proper diet. With so many food choices around, it’s also so easy to make bad food choices especially when we’re busy.

I also know many of you are aware that fast food is bad for your health. Many studies have proven this. Dr. Joel Fuhrman was on my show recently and his book, The Fast Food Genocide, details the long-time consequences of an unhealthy diet.

It may be hard for changing your diet but try to do it one step at a time. One way to reduce your calories by 10% is cutting out your consumption of animal products.

Dr. Mark Hyman, another previous guest, has a different approach to improving your food choices and shift your diet to a healthy one. The “pegan” diet as he calls it, is a combination of the paleo and vegan diets. Doing a pegan diet primarily uses high-quality meat.  So those who can’t take dairy products can opt for the organic meat which is rich in vitamin K2.

Catharine Arnston also says that vitamin K2 keeps the excess calcium out of your skin, so it doesn’t contribute to wrinkles. Furthermore, only 10% of chlorophyll is absorbed in your stomach. The rest stays in through the entire intestinal tract, goes through the liver and down the colon.

Chlorophyll, on the other hand, absorbs carcinogens. Since it’s a fat-based pigment, it heals cell walls. And because chlorophyll absorbs carcinogens, it cleans out the lower intestines as well.

Looking Ahead

Catharine Arnston is happy to share that even Congress now realizes the nutritional value of algae through the Algae Agricultural Act. She says it’s about time to set the record straight that algae are not a supplement but rather a crop. 

“Algae are also sustainable. My dream is to have a huge algae farm in the U.S. Aside from this; algae also capture carbon dioxide,” shares Catharine Arnston. “I also recently learned that NASA wants to grow algae in space. So, in being eco-friendly, we are choosing crops and choosing foods that are healthier for us and healthier for the environment.”

Source Of Omega 3

There is so much more information surrounding algae. Did you know that algae are also a source of omega 3? But Catharine Arnston says the demand for omega 3 or fish oil has been so high that it has already stripped the ocean of so many species of fish already. It is disruptive to the environment, and it is only a matter of time when it disrupts everything.

“Go straight to what the fish are eating. Algae is vegan, and it protects the ocean. The other problem is, some tests have shown that 80% of fish oil comes up rancid. It’s just the process of packaging it,” Catharine Arnston explains. “You can’t stop the oxidation process, so that causes inflammation. Algae never go rancid, and it’s always clean. So you’re better off getting your omega 3 from a sustainable source.”

She adds, “Algae is also responsible for up to 85% of the oxygen on earth. So growing algae is good for air quality. Because algae kill bacteria, algae are used in every city’s water processing plant. You can use the water over and over, and there’s zero waste for algae.” 

Success Stories

There are many people whose health improved with chlorella and spirulina. Just a month ago. Catharine Arnston received an email from a 35-year-old mom with three kids.  

She was diagnosed last year with stage 4 uterine cancer. The cancer has metastasized into her bones, lungs, and liver. She underwent chemo, lost 60 pounds, and was bedridden last year. The only thing keeping her alive was the love for her children.

That woman had a friend who lived in Kansas who happened to take algae regularly. She sent her friend a bag of ENERGYbits with spirulina, and RECOVERYbits.  In two weeks, that woman was able to get out of bed!

“We’re on a path where we know we’re making a difference. Our bodies can heal themselves. We have to give them what it needs and take away what it doesn’t,” said Catharine Arnston.

More On Chlorella

We can’t get enough of chlorella and spirulina because there’s still so much to learn about them. Chlorella, in particular, has a thousand more chlorophyll than any other greens. It has cleansing properties and has health benefits. Aside from that, chlorella has a high amount of protein and essential fatty acids.

Chlorella also has nucleic acids that control cellular function and heredity. The two forms of nucleic acid are DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid).

“As you age, your DNA and RNA become damaged. So, they start replicating in a damaged form. That contributes to aging and disease and wrinkles. Ultimately, chlorella helps with wellness, skin health, and faster healing of wounds,” said Catharine Arnston.

Catharine Arnston says chlorella has the highest concentration of iron in the world. It is 48 times more than spinach. She says iron is what carries oxygen in your blood so if you don’t have enough oxygen; you’ll feel fatigued. It is also great for the skin and has a high concentration of protein.

Spirulina and Mother’s Milk

Catharine Arnston also reveals that spirulina can benefit the quality of mother’s milk. It supplies the proteins, healthy fat, antioxidants and vitamins needed to nourish the mother’s body. Because spirulina is rich in GLA or gamma-linolenic acid, it can also aid the development of the baby especially brain function.

“Spirulina is the one that’s energizing and provides you with all that focus. But the chlorella is your health and wellness algae. Your brain uses up 20% of your energy. And spirulina helps so much with the mental focus,” said Catharine Arnston.

She adds, “Spirulina helps open the blood vessels, allows the blood to flow faster, sends more oxygen to your muscles and brain so you can think better. It is loaded with the B vitamins. Spirulina has more B vitamins. B vitamins convert glucose into energy and help with the methylation process.” 

How To Eat Algae

The taste of algae is complex. But Catharine Arnston says there are a lot of ways on how to eat algae:

– Use as a garnish. RECOVERYbits is a fantastic garnish on a salad.

– Turn it into a game for the kids. Vitamin K2 is terrific for kids to strengthen their bones.

– Tastes great with nuts.

– You can grind them up and make it into a smoothie.

– Great with coconut chips and dark chocolate.

“Ultimately, don’t see it as just food, see it as something that’s going to benefit you from a health perspective as well,” advises Catharine Arnston.

Why Chlorella And Spirulina Are Superfoods

http://learntruehealth.com/chlorella-spirulina-superfoods/

Have you heard that chlorella and spirulina are superfoods? Chances are, you’ve heard of it, but many people are still unaware of its benefits. I have been consuming chlorella and spirulina from ENERGYbits for some time now. And because I’m so amazed at the health benefits of these superfoods, I decided to invite Catharine Arnston again on the show to talk more about it.

Demand for Chlorella

Catharine Arnston says, first of all; chlorella is the only thing that removes radiation from your body. Chlorella is also called a chelator which eliminates any toxins whether its mercury or lead. It is recommended for chemotherapy treatments because it removes chemotherapy and radiation. Chlorella also has the highest concentration of chlorophyll and vitamin K2.

Some people argue that iodine is just as sufficient. On the contrary, although iodine prevents the absorption of its toxins, it doesn’t remove things like radiation.

“Because algae or spirulina and chlorella are both crops grown in freshwater. With the radiation incident in Fukushima, people there are aware of the ability of it to remove radiation. So, we had to wait for two months to get our next supply.”

I know for a fact that iodine only prevents absorption within the thyroid. It’s been a common habit wherein everyone was buying iodine, but things are slowly changing. In fact, my three-year-old son likes chlorella and even calls them green crackers.

“Chlorella also tastes fantastic with macadamia nuts. Because of the great fat in macadamia, and the sea salt, blend it with the flat green flavor of the chlorella, and it tastes like potato chips,” said Catharine Arnston.

Spirulina Overview

On the other hand, Catharine Arnston shares that the United Nations endorsed spirulina for 50 years as the answer to world hunger. This is because it has the highest concentration of protein and fortified vitamins and minerals.

Catharine Arnston thinks chlorella is even more critical than spirulina due to its ability to remove toxins. But mainly, both chlorella and spirulina have significant value for our health. 

ENERGYbits

Catharine Arnston’s ENERGYbits company has been in the business for seven years already. She currently offers several products under the ENERGYbits, RECOVERYbits, SKINNYbits, and VITALITYbits line.

Each product has a significant purpose. And Catharine Arnston assures that all her products are organic. She also has an excellent deal for Learn True Health listeners! Just type in the LTH code to avail of the 20% discount. There’s no expiry for the code so you can keep replenishing your supply.

View On Supplements

Catharine Arnston says that spirulina, in particular, is a food base replacement for supplements. And because there’s so much protein in spirulina, it acts as a snack and gives you energy before your workout. It can replace energy bars and energy drinks.

“Spirulina is a one-stop shop for energy, focus, hunger, health, and wellness. There’s no need for calcium, magnesium, multivitamins, and fish oil,” said Catharine Arnston.

Supplements are usually made from inorganic materials, and Catharine Arnston says it is similar to rocks or seashells. Organic materials are plants or things that are alive.

“When you have a mineral that comes from something that’s alive, it has all the other factors and co-factors. Because these minerals are enzymatic,” said Catharine Arnston. “They just work better when they come from a source that has been alive because of the synergies.”

She adds, “You will either not absorb them, or you will get to a toxicity state. And 95% of supplements are made from extracts. You’re either peeing them out, or you can reach toxic levels from fat-based vitamins.”

That’s why Catharine Arnston advises it’s always better to get your nutrients from food. Algae has a thousand times more chlorophyll than greens. In fact, chlorella has two hundred times more chlorophyll than spinach. 

What Is Spirulina?

Catharine Arnston says spirulina, which is a blue-green algae, is technically a bacteria. It was the first plant life on earth almost four billion years ago. And the blue color of spirulina comes from a pigment called phycocyanin.

“Take a few tabs of spirulina and put on a white plate with some water. Let it sit of for a few hours. You’ll see colors. That’s phycocyanin,” said Catharine Arnston.

Benefits of Spirulina

Catharine Arnston says spirulina can reverse cancer. It is used for hunger, energy, and focus, that’s why Catharine Arnston named it ENERGYbits.

Spirulina also has the highest concentration of protein in the world. Catharine Arnston said that the Germans discovered this in 1917 and won a Nobel prize related to that. Furthermore, spirulina is loaded with B vitamins for energy, and also important for a process called methylation.

“It’s a cellular process that helps your cells to grow back healthy. Spirulina is also loaded with essential fatty acids and omega 3. It also has gamma-linolenic acid, also known as omega 6 but behaves like an omega three because it’s unprocessed,” reveals Catharine Arnston.

For those watching their diet, you’ll be thrilled to know that spirulina has zero carbs. Catharine Arnston says it’s vital for the keto communities. Plus, you feel fresh and alert!

“We’re working for more professional sports communities because we do all these lab tests to prove that they’re safe. They have no banned substances, and the nutrient profile is exactly what we say it is and its toxin-free,” Catharine Arnston said.

ENERGYbits Company

Catharine Arnston shares that she started the company because her youngest sister developed breast cancer up in Canada. Her oncologist advised her sister to change her diet to an alkaline diet. This way, it would help with her healing.

Fast forward ten years later, Catharine Arnston’s is now cancer-free, and ENERGYbits has helped a lot of people as well.

“We grow algae in freshwater tanks in Taiwan. Ninety-nine percent is grown in Asia, India, China, Japan, and a little in Hawaii,” narrates Catharine Arnston. “Taiwan is known to have the highest quality algae and strictest controls.”

She adds, “We use fresh water from mountain spring, and it’s triple-filtered. The algae are tested every day for purity. It is tested again at a third-party lab in the United States to make sure there are no toxins and pesticides.”

Importance Of Chlorophyll

Catharine Arnston said algae is a single-cell organism that converts sunshine like any other plant. That’s why her company doesn’t use high heat to preserve the enzymes.

“So we’re very proud that our algae are considered a raw food. It’s always better to get your nutrients from food,” said Catharine Arnston.

She adds, “There’s chlorophyll in spirulina. And there’s a study proving that when you take chlorophyll, you are exposing yourself to sunlight. When that happens, you generate energy in the same way as you would from ketones. We’re not that different from plants after all. Furthermore, chlorophyll has identical properties as red blood cells.”

Catharine Arnston also explains that chlorophyll is a fat-based pigment or antioxidant. It is also essential for your cell walls.

“Vitamin A and vitamin D are fat-based. All of those fat-based vitamins will help heal the cell wall. If cell wall isn’t healthy with proper fat, nutrients cannot get in, and toxins can’t get out,” explains Catharine Arnston.

She adds, “It’s quite different from that other pigment in spirulina which is called phycocyanin. That’s a water-based pigment. It affects your plasma and your blood. Fat-based vitamins and things like chlorophyll are for the cell wall. The water-based ones are for your blood and plasma.”

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt

For those who have listened to my past episodes, you may recall my previous interview with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. Going to medical school in Germany gave Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt an in-depth knowledge of acupuncture and with homeopathy. Because of this, he can treat people with a more Holistic approach. He has been 100% reversing autism and treats Lyme disease as well.

I’m happy to report that Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt gets an excellent result with children. That’s because he puts them on a natural program to detoxify the body. The first thing Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt does to his patients is getting them on chlorella. Because ultimately, chlorella pulls out or chelates those heavy metals from the body, brain, and nervous system.

I also learned from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt that when you only eat a few pieces of chlorella, it simulates heavy metals to come out of your tissue. But ultimately, there is not enough chlorella to bind to it.

So, therefore, if you’re going to eat chlorella every day, consuming 20 to 30 pieces in one sitting is adequate. That amount is enough to bind to the heavy metals and releases toxins out of your body through the liver and kidney.

What Is Chlorella?

According to Catharine Arnston, chlorella is a wellness algae. It helps you recover your health or prevents you from getting sick. Which is why she named her product RECOVERYbits.

“The cleansing component comes from the chlorophyll which is also in spirulina. But it is twice as much in the chlorella. Chlorophyll cleans those windows on those cell walls so nutrients get in and toxins get out,” said Catharine Arnston.

Catharine Arnston also explains that as far as the detox capability of chlorella is concerned, it is different from spirulina. Spirulina is not a chelator. You can get cleansing benefits from it, but it cannot pull out heavy toxins as chlorella does. 

How Chlorella Is Grown

Chlorella is the fastest growing plant in the world. Catharine Arnston says it quadruples in size every 24 hrs. It blooms out circularly, so the tanks that the chlorella are raised in are round.

Even the packaging for chlorella has a science behind it. Catharine Arnston reveals that all packaging bags are UV tested. This way, sunlight can’t get in.  Why? Because the sunlight will pull the chlorophyll out of the algae and cause deterioration in nutrients.

Sun Chlorella

Catharine Arnston shares that Sun Chlorella is considered “granddaddy” of chlorella. They patented a technique to physically tumble the chlorella after it was grown in glass beads.

Through this technique, the friction of the glass beads with the chlorella would physically crack the chlorella. Hence, 99% of all chlorella that’s grown around the world uses Sun Chlorella’s technique.

“I heard that there could be some lead that leaks into the chlorella. So I had to find another technique, and we did. It’s new, modern, and more expensive,” reveals Catharine Arnston. “And that’s what we use to crack our chlorella. We pass chlorella into a sound chamber, and it’s the vibrations that crack the chlorella. There are no glass, no heat, and no lead.”

Catharine Arnston also says that the State of California also heard about the alleged lead leak. So, they did a test and did indeed, find that lead levels exceeded what was acceptable. Incidentally, this may also cause birth defects and brain disorders.

“I started this company to help people be healthy. And I just wanted to help my sister. That’s all I wanted to do, and I just kept going,” said Catharine Arnston.

Bio

Catharine Arnston has a thirty-year career as an international Attache for the Canadian and British Governments, publisher of an international magazine and Founder of three startups. But in 2009 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist to change her diet to an alkaline one because it would help her heal, Catharine Arnston put her career on hold to help her sister. 

In the process, she discovered algae, the most alkaline, nutrient-dense plant in the world that no one seemed to know about. Catharine Arnston knew algae would be a game changer for the world if she could just help Americans understand it. Because of that, ENERGYbits was born.

Get WellBe

http://learntruehealth.com/get-wellbe/

Get WellBe is a fantastic health resource for those who would want to be armed with a wealth of knowledge. More and more people realize that there are better and more natural ways of healing. And Get WellBe seeks to empower those who want to make a significant change concerning healthcare. Adrienne Nolan-Smith is the woman behind getting Get WellBe, and we’ll learn more about it in this episode.

Lyme Disease

Adrienne Nolan-Smith was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease when she was just 11 years old in 1996. Her younger brother was similarly diagnosed, but his situation was worse.  Nevertheless, to find a cure, the siblings were accompanied by the mother to several conventional doctors.

The siblings were soon put on a common antibiotic for Lyme disease. Not satisfied with the treatment, Adrienne Nolan-Smith’s mother researched about the disease shortly after the antibiotic didn’t work.

Continuing Struggle

Adrienne Nolan-Smith was brought to strange therapy places by her mother in an attempt to get cured.  Her diet was drastically changed and was even made to try Chinese herbs. It paid off because two years later, Adrienne Nolan-Smith was tested negative for Lyme disease.  That became Adrienne Nolan-Smith’s eye-opener.

Five years later, Adrienne Nolan-Smith went to college. Everything seemed fine. But picking up a parasite during China trip when she was in her late teens posed another health challenge.

In another effort to get well, Adrienne Nolan-Smith changed her diet drastically. She lost her period for two years from 2004 to 2006. Adrienne Nolan-Smith went to several doctors. They looked at some of her bloodwork, and some even suggested taking birth control pills to regulate her period.

Mental Illness

Everything seemed okay when Adrienne Nolan-Smith went to a Naturopath. She cleaned her diet, took more Chinese herbs, supplements and even tried acupuncture.

But while she was on the road to health, Adrienne Nolan-Smith’s mother had a manic episode in 2010. Adrienne Nolan-Smith’s mother eventually committed suicide while she was on antipsychotic and antidepressant medications to treat schizoaffective disorder. According to Adrienne Nolan-Smith, it was a hard battle for five years going in and out of mental health care facilities. 

Turning Point

Losing her mother was devastating. Because of that, Adrienne Nolan-Smith decided to switch careers. She moved to Chicago and eventually met her husband there.

“There’s a whole different way of practicing medicine, and a whole different way of living,” said Adrienne Nolan-Smith. “I knew I didn’t want to see patients. But I wanted to start a business that had something to do with integrated medicine and wellness.” 

She adds, “The only job I could get that could pay me was this patient engagement software startup. I was the 30th employee, and I ended up working for hospitals for three years.”

The Insider

Adrienne Nolan-Smith also shares that working in hospitals was grueling and depressing. She likewise saw many patients and how the healthcare treated chronic conditions.

“I heard mainstream people talking about Functional Medicine. And I was so excited because, for the first time, I found other people like me. Furthermore, Naturopathic doctors were excited about changing health care,” Adrienne Nolan-Smith said.

Starting Get WellBe

Adrienne Nolan-Smith shares that during her honeymoon, she was writing in her journal at the beach. Right then and there, Adrienne Nolan-Smith decided to start a media company. She was convinced it was the perfect career path for her since she has ample experience doing research.

“I thought awareness and education was the number one thing I had to do. So, I quit my job. I knew I wanted to tell patients stories of health recovery,” said Adrienne Nolan- Smith. “There were also other people like me who trusted the system. Many people went through it and realized they needed another form of healing.”

How the Get WellBe Name Originated

The name Get WellBe is unique. Adrienne Nolan-Smith says WellBe connotes wellness and well-being. It’s more of a play on well-being because it sounds catchy, which is perfect for her audience who are approximately 25 to 45 years old.

“WellBe.com wasn’t available in 2012. So, I thought of a variation. Putting the word “get” reminds people that being healthy doesn’t just happen to you,” shares Adrienne Nolan-Smith. “It’s a lot of work every day to do all the things that will keep you healthy.”

Baby Steps

In preparation for establishing Get Wellbe, Adrienne Nolan-Smith started collecting stories of health success. She also built a list of Functional and Holistic experts who can help people.

Launched in July last year, Adrienne Nolan-Smith’s Get Wellbe website also has animated video guides. There’s also a weekly newsletter, and the company enjoys a significant presence on Instagram and Facebook.

Company Philosophy

Trying out something new and unfamiliar can be scary and daunting. That’s why for those who are seeking alternative treatments, Adrienne Nolan-Smith felt her company’s mission is to arm people with a wide range of knowledge about health.

She says there are so many harmful elements that terrify and make people depressed. It can be drugs, over-prescription of medicine, misdiagnosis, what’s in our food, and dealing with issues like roundup.

“Research is important to us but so is storytelling. We make sure that things are palatable and not fear-mongering. My job is to try to present that information logically and conversationally that makes you want to be an advocate. It’s been a wild ride.” 

Advocating For Ourselves

Adrienne Nolan-Smith acknowledges there are a lot of good Holistic doctors and Naturopaths. But ultimately, she believes we should learn to be an advocate for ourselves. One easy way to take care of ourselves is realizing how important water is.

“Filter water, not using plastic and staying hydrated are three of the most important things that you can do for your health. It’s such an easy way to keep yourself from getting sick. Hydration does so many amazing things for the body,” advises Adrienne Nolan-Smith.

Adrienne Nolan-Smith also says that the microbiome needs good and bad bacteria. But the problem is, in the industrialized food system, especially in a globalized one, a lot of our produce come from other countries with different microbiome, sanitary conditions, and regulations.

“That’s why I am conscious about using the grapefruit seed extract because according to what I read, it’s strongest of the non-toxic produce washes,” said Adrienne Nolan-Smith.

Extra Resources

For more information, Get WellBe has a link on their website where you can download a free PDF on how to get to the root cause of a chronic health issue. Most of the document is around all of the different places where you can find Holistic or Naturopathic doctors, as well as practitioners.  There’s also a list of the top 10 questions to ask a doctor.

Revenues

It’s not easy running a company like Get Wellbe. Adrienne Nolan-Smith says she gets some of the revenues from affiliate partners. She has non-toxic products put in a store and has several other brands lined up. Women indeed have gone a long way from being homemakers to running their own business.  

“Many different revenue models make sense for media. And no media company on earth gets all of their revenue from one source. It’s just about deciding what revenue channels make sense for my audience,” Adrienne Nolan-Smith said. 

She adds, “From my twenty-year health journey, the system we live in is not set up to prevent or reverse chronic disease. It’s quite the opposite. If you want to live a happy, long, full and well life, take control of your health. Advocate for yourself in healthcare situations, demand more from your brands and institutions and never, never give up.”

P.U.R.E. Success

http://learntruehealth.com/p-u-r-e-success/

P.U.R.E. Success initially sounds unattainable. And I know we all want to have P.U.R.E. Success in everything we do. That’s why I decided to have Aaron Keith Hawkins back on the show to dive into how P.U.R.E. Success can be achieved.

Personal Realization

Aaron Keith Hawkins helps people become excellent in their personal and professional life. He helps them see their blind spots, eliminate barriers and alibis. Ultimately, he maintains his clients transform their lives with intention and purpose. And in doing so, it helps him to be more aware of himself.

“I realized when life is good, a lot of times people tend to settle in. And people feel something is missing. A connection is the most important thing to allow us to succeed,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins. “If we’re not actively willing to connect, express ourselves and allow people to express themselves, things can get tough.”

Life Purpose

When we’re in a good mood but we don’t have any form of evolution, Aaron Keith Hawkins says that’s when things get stale. Naturally, as our life progresses, we should be interested in other things and try new things.  One of the needs we have as human beings is the need for novelty.

“We need things and experiences that are new. If we don’t engage with it somehow, that’s one of the most common mistakes,” Aaron Keith Hawkins said. 

He adds, “I know for most people; if nothing comes along and shakes them up, or someone doesn’t come along and shake them up, they can spend their entire life just feeling “good.” We can do better and feel amazing.” 

Facing Fears

Fear is something a lot of people struggle with. But I think it’s all about recommitting to your goal or being flexible in achieving that goal rather than giving up so we can attain P.U.R.E. Success.

“The truth is, having some quality fears are necessary. Example, if there are so many drastic changes in diet and you’re feeling depleted, that’s a good time to evaluate. It’s just about awareness,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins. 

He adds, “The point is, we own fear and the fear we have is a tool. It is our tool to be able to reflect on whatever it is. Most of the time, most of our fears are not dangerous.”

Aaron Keith Hawkins further explains that the fear of it not working is usually the fear of it not working fast enough. Another scenario would be fear of the fact that it’s working but isn’t noticeable enough yet. It’s usually about judgment and how do we feel about ourselves.

Love Yourself

Sometimes we’re so lost in taking care of others that we end up neglecting ourselves. But when we learn not to feel guilty about doing the things we want to do, that’s when we can make some significant progress in realizing P.U.R.E. Success.

“The truth is, you love yourself. That’s why you want it in the first place. It’s so easy to forget our values. And one of the best ways to have more patience is exercise curiosity,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins.

Aaron Keith Hawkins adds that it’s really about who can we inspire by creating a plan that will make this last long term. Aaron Keith Hawkins usually convinces his clients to serve someone else with regards to what they are trying to do for themselves. Because he says, people tend to do more for somebody else than they’ll ever do for themselves. 

Making Decisions

Before making any step, we first have to consider our identity. It’s a pathway to shift our belief system from a negative to a positive. This way, our habitual behavior also turns into the ones that help us get the result we want.

“Choose what we need to learn. Find what we need to learn and what we need to do differently. You don’t have to fake anything to make it,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins.

Aaron Keith Hawkins also explains that there’s no better time in history than to be whoever you want to be than now. Because we have almost literally unlimited information about the things, we want to do. There’s information that can help you do it.

“We can put it to use. It’s not copying what someone else is doing. But rather looking at how can you can implement it, in what way you can use it, and for what you want to accomplish. It’s part journey and part process. And another part is remembering those values like patience,” Aaron Keith Hawkins said.

Gaining Curiosity

How do we have curiosity? Aaron Keith Hawkins advises being innocently curious. Think about what how a decision, or thing affect what’s going to happen next.

And whatever identity you choose, you will eventually find evidence to support it. You see that it’s part of human nature. That is a critical piece of truth for all of us to remember.

Four Laws Of P.U.R.E. Success

The word “pure” in P.U.R.E. Success is an acronym:

P – Pivotal choice U – Unconditional high standards R – Reflective comparison E – Elevating our situational response. Pivotal Choice

First of all, the pivotal choice from P.U.R.E. Success means being 100% responsible for everything that happens in our life.  Aaron Keith Hawkins calls it a pivotal choice because people who choose to not adopt this as a mindset there will have their life turn out one way. And people who do decide to act as if they’re 100% responsible for everything going on in their life, their life turns out in a completely different way.

Ultimately, Aaron Keith Hawkins says it’s not about blaming yourself. It’s about accepting that you are entirely responsible for what’s going to happen next. That’s where responsibility comes in. This includes emotional reaction, plan of action, thoughts, and interpretation of the event.

Unconditional High Standards

Aaron Keith Hawkins mentions Tom Robbins, a speaker he looks up to, who said that to change the quality of our life, have to improve our standards. We have to change the standard of who we are and what we’re going to tolerate.

“It’s relatively easy to keep those high standards once we decide on something. And it’s easy to live up to them when everything is going right. The problem is, for a lot of people, a lot of those standards are conditional,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins.

Furthermore, Aaron Keith Hawkins says that when we have a reason not to maintain our standards, or when we have an excuse to drop the standards that we set for ourselves, that’s when it matters the most. The standard you set doesn’t matter. What matters is the standard you keep when you have an excuse not to. Those are the life-altering moments.

Reflective Comparison

Aaron Keith Hawkins says this is simply the idea of looking in the mirror and asking ourselves what we’d do if we had no ego, flaws, baggage or alternative agenda. It’s about asking yourself what will happen if you couldn’t get something wrong.

Ultimately, if we have to hear a question, we have to have an answer. And every time we ask ourselves a question, we would indeed come up with a solution.

Elevating Your Situational Methodology

Aaron Keith Hawkins says that for this last step, it’s about stepping up your habits. Most people do what’s familiar to them. They hope, they believe or create. Only a few people choose to create an outcome in any situation.

“We don’t have to rely solely on hope. Because we can hope while we’re believing and we can hope while we’re creating something,” advises Aaron Keith Hawkins. 

He adds, “Always look for a way to create in any situation whether it be an outcome, a situation, a story or a question. When we’re willing to do that in conjunction with these other rules, it’s life-changing.” 

Unbreakable Success Podcast

Aaron Keith Hawkins has a great podcast called Unbreakable Success. He interviews successful people from all walks of life, and it’s a great resource to learn golden nuggets of wisdom. 

The Unbreakable Success podcast is on iTunes, and I highly encourage my listeners to check that out.

Million Dollar Influence Book

If you can’t get enough of Aaron Keith Hawkins, he also has a new book called Million Dollar Influence.  It teaches people how to be an influencer at home or work.

The book also teaches influence in a way that completely flips the lid on how a lot of people look at influence. Just link to Aaron Keith Hawkins’ official website to download your free copy of Million Dollar Influence. 

“It’s a step-by-step process to understanding human behavior, understanding the building blocks of influence and relationship building. The book is a culmination of many lessons and mistakes I’ve learned over the years,” shares Aaron Keith Hawkins.

Clean Eating Kitchen

http://learntruehealth.com/clean-eating-kitchen/

How many of you have heard of the Clean Eating Kitchen which teaches you how to make easy, healthy food? Yes, it is possible! My guest, Carrie Forrest focuses on Holistic living after going through a health crisis. And I’m excited that she’s sharing diet tips that can improve your health significantly.

Unhealthy Childhood

Carrie Forrest has gone through so many health battles — PCOS, autoimmune disease, eating disorders, panic attacks, anxiety, IBS, migraines, depression, and thyroid cancer.  But that’s getting ahead of the story.

Carrie Forrest shares that she was unhealthy the first 30 years of her life. She lived in California, grew up in the Midwest and ate a standard American diet. Her childhood was drinking sugary drinks and foods out of cans and boxes since processed foods started to take off in the early 80s. It was indeed a far cry from her Clean Eating Kitchen lifestyle.

“I also had a very not stable childhood home, and I was moving a lot. There was also financial instability,” said Carrie Forrest. “I think I had some thyroid disease starting in my late 20s. The signs had icy hands and feet. I also had thick hair most of my life, and my hair got thin.”

Growing Up Years

Breastfeeding was also not popular when Carrie Forrest was born. Soon, it caught up to her during puberty years when the first signs that something was wrong appeared.  It turned out that Carrie Forrest developed signs of PCOS in the late 80s.

Carrie Forrest didn’t have a lot of weight issues. But she would often go to the dentist for cavities filling put in due to unhealthy food choices. Furthermore, she never had a regular menstrual cycle.

During her college years, Carrie Forrest was put on birth control. But she still did not make the connection between starting oral contraception and food choices. To make things worse, about six months later, she had her first panic attack. Things went downhill from there. 

Cancer Diagnosis

Around 2005, Carrie Forrest recalls that there was one time when her OB-Gyne felt her neck after Carrie Forrest complained about feeling fatigued. That was the first time a doctor had examined her thyroid. Her doctor did feel something in her neck and recommended that Carrie Forrest see an endocrinologist.

After doing an ultrasound test, the doctor told Carrie Forrest that she would need thyroid hormones one day because her thyroid is scarred. At that point, Carrie Forrest started learning about nutrition and went on her way. Plus, there was also a lot of anger issues stemming from her childhood that Carrie Forrest needed to work through.

“The doctors were trying their best. It’s not like they were hiding something from me. There are many ways the doctors of today could do a lot more to be educated because the information is out there,” said Carrie Forrest. 

She added, “I have a degree in Public Health Nutrition. And that’s like a mainstream degree where we look at studies that back up a theory. The scientific studies probably haven’t caught up. And so mainstream medicine continues to look at the older evidence.”

Life-changing Moment

Carrie Forrest says that watching the movie Super-size Me made her realize that things had to change. But apparently, the concept for Clean Eating Kitchen originated from skimming through her grandmother’s cookbooks.

The cookbooks of Carrie Forrest’s grandmother was full of recipes that used processed foods. Carrie Forrest then realized that she was the third generation of society that has been fed processed foods.

“I was in my late 30s when I needed thyroid surgery. It was in 2012 when I went for a check-up via ultrasound. I thought I was doing everything right. But it turns out I could have had the beginnings of cancer way back in the 80s because of eating processed foods,” Carrie Forrest said. 

Surviving Cancer

Carrie Forrest is now cancer-free. The standard medical procedure for treating her type of cancer was to remove the whole thyroid. She regularly does blood work to keep her health in check, but she also had to change her diet.

Taking thyroid replacement hormones is needed for those recovering from thyroid disease. Carrie Forrest’s challenge was to figure out the right dosage.

“I had the Hashimoto’s Thyroid disease which isn’t autoimmune disease. But I didn’t take it seriously. When I had my thyroid removed, it wasn’t until a few more years when I started seeing a functional medicine physician,” said Carrie Forrest. 

She adds, “I had Hashimoto’s Thyroid Disease for a good 10 to 15 years before I developed cancer in my thyroid. My body had been producing antibodies that whole time.”

Changing Diets

Since Carrie Forrest needed a healthier diet, she discovered that becoming dairy-free and gluten-free is less inflammatory for her. But because she craved animal protein, she switched from a vegan diet to a paleo diet.

This reminds me of the interview I did with Dr. Mark Hyman wherein he adopted a “pegan” diet, combining some elements from the paleo and vegan diets. But still, the amount of meat remains lower than the standard diet, and the meat is grass-fed.

It has been 7 or 8 years that Carrie Forrest is dairy and gluten free. And she has seen a considerable difference. One of the significant improvement is that her body’s antibody levels went down.

Carrie Forrest however, says traveling is challenging. Because not all places have a wide range of healthy food choices. She also recommends keeping a journal to note down food choices. 

Another a huge component is also dealing with emotional stress and anger. In this regard, doing yoga can work wonders. Carrie Forrest also mentions that she underwent a program at the University of San Francisco called Emotional Brain Training. It involved the idea of neuroscience and journaling your thoughts, and that helped her heal.

“Learn to express. Addressing anger or emotions heals. There are emotional roots in every health condition. So, tapping into those feelings are significant. Also, work with a professional,” recommends Carrie Forrest.

Clean Eating Kitchen Website

Carrie Forrest’s Clean Eating Kitchen website is such a delight! It’s full of tips and recipes that are healthy for you. To further encourage people to embrace healthy eating, Clean Eating Kitchen involves only three to five ingredients.  Healthy eating becomes fun, easy and nutritious. 

“The recipes are all gluten and dairy free. I like to make it simple. Smoothies are perfect for breakfast, and that’s where I like to add more healthy ingredients,” said Carrie Forrest. “I also noted that a lot of people are budget-conscious so my recipes have seasonal ingredients but a lot of it is vegan.”

From her website, you’ll also find a link to her Clean Eating Kitchen podcast.  There’s a link to her podcast episode to teach you how you can make easy and delicious vegetable dishes that kids will surely love. So make sure to check that out!

Health Is Wealth

http://learntruehealth.com/health-is-wealth/

Today I did a fun interview with Alive and Well Podcast where I talked about how health is wealth. Brittany Adams is the host of the show. She usually interviews leading health and wellness experts who give valuable advice on how to achieve true health.

Sickly Kid

I was a sickly kid, and I was far from true health. It was a constant juggling between dealing with ear infections and throat infections. My mom also had her health issues, coping with candida which was not common during the 80s. In my health is wealth journey, my mom happened to meet a Naturopath who advised her to change her diet. We got rid of yeast, wheat, and sugar. In place of no grains, we shifted to eating whole foods and taking supplements.

Growing Up Years

I grew up hanging out in the health food store and was healthy until I was 13 years old. The rebel in me kicked in. I ate a lot of unhealthy foods, and so my health went downhill. I took the phrase, ‘health is wealth’ for granted. It was sad for me to be told at 19 years old that I would never have kids since I developed a bad case of PCOS and chronic infections. That’s why I was always on antibiotics. Plus, I was hungry all the time. During my 20s, I developed type 2 diabetes, chronic adrenal fatigue, and dealt with mood swings. My health situation was crazy! 

Improving Health

When I got married, my husband and I love to watch health documentaries. We shopped and ate organic foods. It was not long before my chronic infection stopped. My quality of life went up significantly. We truly realized that health is wealth.

On our quest for true health, my husband and I tried so many diets over the years. We started studying with different Naturopathic physicians. It was not until seven years ago when we met a Naturopath who later on became our mentor.

When I changed my diet and tried to adopt a healthier lifestyle, I was able to reverse my type 2 diabetes, and ultimately got rid of PCOS. My husband and I can honestly attest that Natural Medicine can make significant changes as far as true health is concerned. Plus, we are now proud parents of a beautiful three-year-old boy.

Helping Others

As someone who spent years struggling with health problems, it served as my motivation to help others once I got better and I wanted other people to also realize that health is wealth. I remember a particular friend of mine who had chronic issues. He was passing one kidney stone a month and always chronically in pain. Guiding him through some changes, that same month the kidney stones stopped. That was seven years ago, and it never returned.

Another friend of mine was in her 60s. She was born with a genetic skin condition, and 90% of her body is covered in scales. After I helped her, my friend’s body recreated new healthy skin. These are only two of the numerous success stories I have helped achieve, and it’s proof that no matter how old you are, your body will heal. You can reverse medical conditions. And always remember that a diagnosis is not a life sentence.

Learn True Health

The number of people I have helped over the years increased. So, two years ago, I was thinking how else I could reach out to more people who needed help. I really wanted more people to embrace the importance that health is wealth. That’s why I started the Learn True Health podcast.

Personally, I’m still on my health journey. And I’m still learning how to improve health especially now that I know health is wealth. So being able to interview health experts on the show significantly adds to my knowledge of true health.

The Best Nutrients

First, a disclaimer. I am not promoting a vegetarian diet since I know everybody is different and there’s no one diet for everyone. My primary mission is to promote eating more real food. I went from being Keto to Paleo before I became a vegetarian primarily on a whole foods diet since last year.

A big part of my show is to not buy into any diet dogma, nor is it all about eating for weight loss. It’s more about the experience of shifting of how you eat to feel your body and see if you get overall better results. As far as minerals are concerned, you need to have your minerals in balance with other minerals. The best thing to do is to get all 60 minerals together in a combination that is plant-derived and easy to absorb. Then there are macronutrients, micronutrients, and phytochemicals.

For phytochemicals, broccoli is a perfect example. There are a thousand phytochemicals in broccoli. I can go on and on how being on a plant-based diet is beneficial. But like I said, not everyone likes vegetables. It’s best to do it one step at a time for your palate to get used to it. Try it out for the first two weeks. Choose the vegetables you like and eat the ones that get you excited.

The Right Foods

There are many ways to enjoy eating vegetables. A former guest on my show, Dr. Joel Fuhrman says that when we eat broccoli, we must eat it well and chew it properly. By doing that, we create chemicals that have anti-cancer properties.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman recommends sauteeing half a cup of mushrooms and cook it with onion and broth before adding it to a salad or brown rice. According to him, this reduces the chance of ever getting cancer. Personally, I made sure to eat foods that are rich in fiber. Ideally, six to eight cups of fiber from whole food make a significant difference in the long run. This is because fiber binds to all the toxins in our body.

I also steer clear of baked goods because it’s calorie-dense. Once I fixed my diet choices, I noticed my bowel movement also improved. If you can adopt healthy food choices, you can also help the body remove excess estrogen. 

Food Addiction

It’s so easy to fall into the food trap. Food addiction is real. Any processed food has been designed to be hyper-palatable, so it excites and hijacks your brain. Also, don’t eat food with a logo because it takes about one to three months to bring the dopamine back down. Salt, sugar, and oil are primary ingredients that companies use in processing food. They use these ingredients to hijack your brain. So go for the whole foods. You’ll feel you have more energy and stamina, as well as feel cleaner and not sluggish.

Purple cabbage is my absolute favorite. I’ve grown to love it so much that it takes like candy! I also like beets. Another way to make your food naturally tasty is to use the seasoning you love. I happen to love Asian flavors and tend to use ginger and green onions.

A great way to grate ginger is to freeze it first before grating. Learn to play with seasonings. You don’t need to cook with butter or oil. Instead, cook food with water or broth. For more info on food addiction, check out Dr. Douglas Lisle and Dr. Alan Goldhammer’s book, The Pleasure Trap. It’s a great resource identifying how food addiction is a severe health disadvantage. There are so many helpful books out there that teaches you how to live a healthier lifestyle.

Be on the lookout for resources that will teach you the following: how to live with fewer calories gain more nutrition naturally lose weight choosing foods with anti-cancer properties identify foods that help the body detox faster how to give your body more energy reducing toxins Free Your Anxiety Program

True health isn’t just about the physical aspect. It’s also about the mental, emotional and spiritual aspect. My Free Your Anxiety Program has benefitted a lot of people. It helped many people eliminate anxiety, and as a special treat for everyone, I am giving a 50% off this Memorial Day Weekend.

Money back guaranteed. The world of Holistic or Natural Medicine has so many exciting things waiting to be discovered.

So, I am inviting everyone to stay tuned to my Learn True Health podcast regularly. Let’s turn this ripple into a tidal wave and walk the road to true health together!

Unbreakable Success

http://learntruehealth.com/unbreakable-success/

Ever thought of why some people seem to have unbreakable success? Unbreakable success is something very doable, but the problem is, most people do not know how or where to start. To get you on your way to achieving unbreakable success, my guest, Aaron Keith Hawkins is the perfect person to show you how.

Unbreakable Success Podcast

Aaron Keith Hawkins started podcasting in 2015. But the show initially went by the name Best Life Of Your Life. Aaron Keith Hawkins couldn’t really pinpoint why he named his show like that. All he knew was that he wanted to help people live a better life.

Shortly after, Aaron Keith Hawkins took a hiatus from podcasting for a few months. He used the break to talk to people about business and branding. That was when he thought of renaming his podcast Unbreakable Success.

“Most people start out with good intentions. But inevitably when people are struggling, something comes along to break those intentions,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins. “I prepare people so that when problems come, they are prepared for it.”

He adds, “And those problems won’t break them down. Because they have already mentally and physically prepared themselves to think that life is going to hit you in the face from time to time.”

What Motivation Means

Aaron Keith Hawkins took up a course in leadership and professional coaching. But he refuses to label himself as a motivational speaker.

“Motivation is a real thing. But I don’t think motivation wins in the long run. Motivation works when you’re feeling motivated. And that’s pretty much the only time it works,” Aaron Keith Hawkins said. “What gets us through those moments when you’re not feeling motivated is your sense of identity.” 

Blissful Life

Aaron Keith Hawkins grew up in New Jersey and was pretty much an average kid. He started his career in his early 20s by becoming a police officer. It was not long before he got married and had a baby.

“My biggest problem in hindsight was that everything was good. And when things are good, there was no need for me to change anything or question anything,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins.

Rude Awakening

Life was good. But one day in December 2009, Aaron Keith Hawkins woke up past midnight with massive chest pain. At that time, Aaron Keith Hawkins was already working as a medical technician for 13 years.

Aaron Keith Hawkins recalls a sharp pain radiating down his arm. He ended up self- diagnosing himself. He got up and tried to walk it off. But it didn’t work. Realizing that he might be having a heart attack, Aaron Keith Hawkins decided to wake up his wife. His wife called 911 just as Aaron Keith Hawkins slumped and collapsed on the floor.

“What was odd is that I wasn’t scared. I got hit with regret. In a flash, I thought of every single opportunity where I could to do so much more and create something more with my life,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins.

He adds, “I realized I had been settling by not intentionally trying to be a better husband or father. All I was doing was the fact that I just did what naturally came to me. Suddenly I realized I left so many opportunities on the table.” 

Turning Point

Following Aaron Keith Hawkins’ collapse at home, he stayed in the hospital for a couple of days. Doctors think he had a mini-stroke rather than a heart attack. They sent Aaron Keith Hawkins home after a month when he got a clean bill of health.

“I think it was a miracle that I had that experience. To be suspected of having a mini-stroke weirded me out because I was a healthy guy. I work out all the time, and I ate well. It was both the worst and best day of my life,” declares Aaron Keith Hawkins. 

That day when Aaron Keith Hawkins got released from the hospital, he and his family went to the mall. Aaron Keith Hawkins recalls that he got teary-eyed.  Overcome with gratefulness that he was alive, he decided not to waste any more time and opportunity.

“I knew that something changed. That started this whole journey after that. As long as we’re alive, we ask one of two things. It’s either we can ask why these things happen to us or we can create the why,” Aaron Keith Hawkins said.

Dealing With Our Egos

Aaron Keith Hawkins says there can be a lot of hurt egos when things happen to us. It’s either due to a break-up, or the weight doesn’t seem to come off. Ultimately, our ego can get involved in demanding an answer. Aaron Keith Hawkins says the real question is asking ourselves why things happen to us. It can wind up feeling like a label.

We should learn to be responsible for our thoughts and actions. When things go wrong, it’s not the end of the world. Instead of being trapped in our past, it’s really about what we learn from our experiences and stop comparing ourselves to others.

“There are plenty of times that things happen, and it has to get your attention. And some things need to be done. The second half is that your emotions are going to come from what you pay attention to and the story that you attach to it,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins.

Most of Aaron Keith Hawkins’ clients are entrepreneurs or people with the entrepreneurial spirit. But when he coaches, it’s whole life coaching. And Aaron Keith Hawkins shares that more often than not, his clients reach out to him because of specific reasons.

“I’m very much about the why. Because I very much enjoy learning about who the person is. I attract entrepreneurs because they have this sense of mission behind them,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins. “Personally, I thrive on it, and I love coaching people through it because I wasn’t doing it before.”

Learning Curve

Over the years, Aaron Keith Hawkins learned a ton of lessons. He ended up looking for a pattern that was consistently creating success not just for himself but also for people he interacted with.

Aaron Keith Hawkins first wanted to condense it to something small and simple so that he can use it regularly. Secondly, he tried to turn it into something that can help others achieve unbreakable success.

How To Achieve Unbreakable Success

Just by making a simple framework, Aaron Keith Hawkins developed what he calls the Four Principles of Pure Success. The word “pure” is an acronym:

P – Pivotal choice

U – Unconditional high standards

R – Reflective comparison

E – Elevating our situational response.

So, from this formula, learn to take 100% responsibility for your response to every single circumstance in your life. Learn to take complete ownership.

“One of the first things I learned in this world of personal and professional growth was from a speaker who said that if you want to change your life, you have to change your standards first,” said Aaron Keith Hawkins.

Aaron Keith Hawkins noticed that people could embrace that belief. But more often than not, we have a lot of these high standards until things hit the fan. And when it hits the fan, the standards go out the window.

To learn more about the four principles of success in detail for free, check out the link available on Aaron Keith Hawkins’ website. Aaron Keith Hawkins says you will learn a lot about how to improve your success and empower you in many areas of your life.

“If we don’t have unconditionally high standards, by default it means that our standards are conditional. Which means, “I’m only going to perform this well ‘if,'” said Aaron Keith Hawkins. “And that ‘if’ is a problem. That’s where lives fall apart.”

19. 259 The Hidden Ingredient in Our Food That Is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It, Whistleblower Scientists Point To Monsanto's RoundUp, Glyphosate, Cardiovascular, Autoimmune, Autism, Alzheimer's, Gut Health, Dr. Stephanie Seneff Ph.D., Ashley James,

Glyphosate

http://learntruehealth.com/glyphosate/

Glyphosate was identified as the cause of a lot of diseases. But what is alarming about this is the fact that there are no definitive or apparent symptoms to warn us that our health is in danger. It’s invisible, too. To explore the science behind this silent killer, I’m happy to have Dr. Stephanie Seneff, who’s a returning guest on the show.

Concerns About Autism

The first time I had Dr. Stephanie Seneff on the show, we talked about the link between glyphosate and autism in episode 89. She researched on which vaccine stood out and linked to autism. Initially, she thought anything with aluminum or mercury was the culprit. But it turned out that MMR has an incredibly strong signal to autism. 

“I was concerned over ten years ago. When I saw the autism rate go up, I was concerned about the vaccines, like lead and mercury in the teeth fillings. But I didn’t know how to explain the disruption of the gut that you see in association with autism,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff.

It was about 5 and a half years ago that Dr. Stephanie Seneff heard a talk from Professor Don Huber, who is over 80 years old and still active, giving lectures all around the world about glyphosate. Dr. Stephanie Seneff recalls that the event was a total epiphany for her.

“I’m so convinced that this chemical is responsible for the autism epidemic. But also responsible for the epidemic of a long list of diseases and conditions that are tormenting us today. Glyphosate is a major player,” Dr. Stephanie Seneff declared.

The Truth About Glyphosate

Dr. Stephanie Seneff believes that chemical companies do an excellent job of deflecting. They usually blamed something else. Diving into what glyphosate is, Dr. Stephanie Seneff says it can mess up the protein in the kidneys that preserve the water used to concentrate the urine.

“So, when you’re in the high heat and sweating, you lose water. You need to be able to retain water as much as you can,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff. “And the critical proteins involved with retaining water is compromised by glyphosate. There are many other proteins as well but bottom line, the kidneys are affected.” 

What Is Glycine

Glycine is a building block for protein. It’s an amino acid. We can digest glycine through foods like fish, meat, dairy, and legumes. It can be used to treat several memory problems and metabolic disorders. Glycine also protects our kidneys from the effects of drugs and alcohol. 

“We wrote a complex paper looking at all these proteins that had critical dependencies on glycine to work properly. What I have been doing is picking a disease, deep dive into it, and look at the proteins involved in that disease,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff. “I look at their dependencies on glycine. It is a beautiful story from a scientific standpoint.”

Dangers Of Glyphosate

Dr. Stephanie Seneff says studies have shown that glyphosate goes into the testes, causes damage and leads to cancers. It also disrupts the cells that protect the sperm. The cells get calcium overload, and they’re exposed to glyphosate. Dr. Stephanie Seneff is also looking into the theory that glyphosate damages fertility.

But according to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, research papers have shown that glyphosate paralyzes the gut. She narrates that there was a woman who tried to commit suicide by drinking glyphosate. The woman had a massive dose of it in her stomach. And her gut froze because it could not contract. Fortunately, the woman survived.

Other studies have also shown that health conditions like obesity and depression are linked to glyphosate. Even serotonin deficiency is related to this harmful chemical.

Discovering Glyphosate

“Glyphosate has been in the market since the mid-70s. It strips metals off pipes. Because it’s a very good metal chelator,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff. “They didn’t discover until later that glyphosate was so good at killing plants.”

Dr. Stephanie Seneff shares that the Europeans had a lot of resistance in the last few times they tried to renew glyphosate in their respective countries. And it’s getting harder to renew it. But in the United States, it wasn’t hard at all.

“In the late 1990s, they discovered they could put a bacterial gene into plants to give them a superman behavior. They protect the plant by putting this bacterial gene. That’s the GMO roundup,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff. “They do this successfully in some core crops that go into the processed food industry. For example, corn, soy, and canola oil are sugar-based. No wonder sugar is bad for you because it’s covered in glyphosate.” 

She adds, “Then they started to get roundup resistance. Weeds were showing up. So they had to use more glyphosate each year to kill these weeds. Which is why the usage went up exponentially.”

Dr. Stephanie Seneff further explains that at this point, it reached a crisis point. There were very resistant weeds. There wasn’t enough glyphosate on weeds enough to kill it. So, companies started introducing dual products containing glyphosate and 2,4-D, which is a component of Agent Orange. 

Agent Orange

Agent Orange is a mixture of 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxy acetic acid and 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid. It contains the chemical contaminant dioxin as an impurity, which in turn caused many deaths.

I know Agent Orange destroys nerves. It causes incredible pain. According to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Agent Orange is even showing up as congenital disabilities. She says it is generational.

Be Careful Of What You Eat

Dr. Stephanie Seneff says it’s quite feasible to switch to a 100% certified organic diet. Companies are spraying so much glyphosate on wheat, which is why Dr. Stephanie Seneff thinks it is the reason why we have an epidemic of gluten intolerance.

“Because the wheat is sprayed right before the harvest, it goes into the wheat germ which is the healthiest part of the wheat. It’s the part that has the highest part of glyphosate contamination,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff. “Wheat bread is going to be more highly contaminated than white bread. Levels are also high on samples of legumes, chickpeas, lentils, hummus, and garbanzos from Canada and the U.S.”

On the other hand, Europe has much lower levels of glyphosate. Dr. Stephanie Seneff also believes that some of the crops that are sprayed before the harvest end up with a higher concentration of glyphosate in the food products, as well as the ones that are GMO roundup ready.

Aside from being selective of foods when you eat out, Dr. Stephanie Seneff recommends the book Poison Foods of North America. The book educates us on what foods to avoid and identifies the most contaminated foods on the planet.

Symptoms

When you eat foods that are contaminated with glyphosate, Dr. Stephanie Seneff says you usually don’t get like a bellyache or a headache that’s very obvious. When you are exposed to it, most of it works its way through your body unchanged and goes out through urine or feces. But there’s a small percentage of it—1 or 2%, that goes into the tissues.

“Because it has a whole glycine molecule there, the machinery that recognizes glycine. This is my theory. It recognizes glyphosate as glycine and puts it into the protein. And if that’s true, it explains so many things,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff.

Recommended Lifestyle

First and foremost, Dr. Stephanie Seneff recommends eating organic foods. We must also be wary of our environments like golf courses and even schoolyards because a lot of chemicals are used to maintain the grassy areas. Another way to adopt a healthier lifestyle is educating people not to choose glyphosate, especially when killing weeds.

“There are natural ways to kill weeds like vinegar and salt or pulling by hand. Dandelions are protective against glyphosate. Herbs are important to keep the gut healthy,” said Dr. Stephanie Seneff. “Consuming sulfur-containing foods like seafood, garlic, and onion is good. Eating preventive foods, whole foods and probiotics help. It’s also healthy to get out in sunlight.”

Dr. Stephanie Seneff says even the use of cotton for clothing and use of tampons should be avoided.  Cotton is dirty if it’s not organic.

For added resources on knowing how to avoid glyphosate, Dr. Stephanie Seneff recommends checking out the Organic Consumer Organization and Moms Across America websites. 

Bio

Dr. Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. She has a BS degree from MIT in biology and a PhD from MIT in electrical engineering and computer science. 

Her recent interests have focused on the role of toxic chemicals and micronutrient deficiencies in health and disease, with a special emphasis on the pervasive herbicide, Roundup, and the mineral, sulfur. She has authored over two dozen peer-reviewed journal papers over the past few years on these topics.

20. 258 Why Homeschooling Is Now The Healthiest Option For Your Kids, How To Teach At Home To Get Ahead, Child Acceleration Specialist Daniel Louzonis, Ashley James, Learn True Health Podcast
http://learntruehealth.libsyn.... download (audio/mpeg, 133.78Mb)

Description: Homeschool 

learntruehealth.com/homeschool

The term and concept of homeschool are often misunderstood. People usually worry about the socialization aspect of opting to homeschool children. But this is far from the truth.  The kids of my guest, Daniel Louzonis is doing well academically and socially, and I am thrilled to have him dive deeper into the homeschool concept.

Traditional Education

Like most people, Daniel Louzonis had a traditional education background. He grew up in an academically rigorous system in Massachusetts, graduating from high school in 1992.

Daniel Louzonis worked to get into an Ivy League school and eventually got into the University of Pennsylvania. He was the captain of the math team in college and found college math easier than high school.

Rude Awakening

After graduation, Daniel Louzonis eventually started his career trading stocks. Although he found nothing wrong with his educational path, he suddenly realized he was already 30 years old with a wife and baby, and at a crossroad dealing with a dwindling career.

Daniel Louzonis had to reinvent himself at 30 years old. He realized that apparently, his educational path wasn’t sustainable. Accidentally embarking on a journey of self-education, Daniel Louzonis started blogging and refreshing his knowledge through the internet.

During his self-discovery journey, Daniel Louzonis discovered that he had vast untapped potential and that the path he was previously on was suboptimal. 

Homeschooling His Kids

Daniel Louzonis decided to deviate from the traditional system by homeschooling his firstborn child, John. When John was around three and a half years old, Daniel Louzonis started doing Kumon workbooks with him.

“My son was exposed to individualized instruction at a very young age. He made leaps and bounds with his learning progress. At 18 months, he did 2,200 pages of Kumon books,” shares Daniel Louzonis.

John’s progress in math was significant. He was able to finish 6th-grade math, and at five years old, he also finished phonic reading. Daniel Louzonis reveals that John started algebra, nine months before John was scheduled to start kindergarten. Now, that’s amazing!

Reality of Homeschool

After deciding to put John under a homeschool program, Daniel Louzonis could see that John could never go into a school environment because he was just too advanced. He never knew that homeschool could produce such significant results in kids.

“The context was interesting. Because at 30 years old, despite having an Ivy League education and geographic mobility, I never heard the word homeschooling,” admits Daniel Louzonis. “My initial impression was that the parents were in the kitchen creating a makeshift school at home.” 

He adds, “I had no idea that homeschooling is a misnomer. And it didn’t even begin to describe the educational possibility that was available to kids who were educated outside the system. Plus, I don’t say homeschool. I say, educated outside the system.”

Reasons To Homeschool

Daniel Louzonis says there are five to ten core philosophies in homeschooling. And people chose to homeschool their kids for varied reasons. Some homeschool for religious reasons, do hybrid homeschool or flexi homeschool. For families who travel a lot, their kids usually do world homeschooling. Other kids opt for homeschool to devote a majority of their time to focus on sports or music. 

“Homeschooling is marked by extreme freedom. So, it defies labeling. Some people in the homeschooling system are chauvinistic, but that goes with the territory. You have to be a free thinker and confident on what you do,” advises Daniel Louzonis.

Some parents turn to homeschooling their kids because of bullying incidents in a traditional school. The reasons change over time. Bottomline, Daniel Louzonis says homeschooling is a good option because not everyone is into academics.

I believe that the parents are the executive function of the child. Once a child has the means or logic brain solidly in place, that’s when parents can hand over the executive function to the child. 

Things To Consider

Seriously thinking of putting your kids to homeschool? Daniel Louzonis says the first thing one should do is to be introspective. Write down your current situation and the role your environment plays in your current situation. Think long and hard about what you wrote.

“Everything that a person has today can all be traced back to their education or inputs they received along the way. If you want a substantially different outcome for your kids, we have to change inputs,” Daniel Louzonis said. “Parents who are not willing to look at their situation critically, will not have that growth mindset.”

Coaching Session

Daniel Louzonis does coaching sessions for three hours a week for 52 weeks. The program costs US$ 50,000 and the sessions are very intense.

Daniel Louzonis says most of the parents want him to work directly with their kids. And a lot of it is math. This is because math is the building block for attention span and mental discipline.

In some cases, Daniel Louzonis only works with the parents. He helps them fix their mindset or improving and maximizing the home. 

“Home is the biggest fulcrum for a child’s intellectual development whether they are in school or not. TV, for example, makes books boring. With no TV, books become the most fascinating thing,” said Daniel Louzonis.

Dangers Of Technology

Daniel Louzonis affirms that his kids have zero television time. He believes it is the most important thing he ever did with his kids. Another thing parents should be wary of is video games.

According to Daniel Louzonis, video games trigger the hyperarousal of the brain.  It leads to the destruction of fine motor skills, short attention span, and short-term memory. One of the worst gadgets a kid could have are cellphones, iPads, and laptops.

Socialization Skills

One of the greatest fear of any parent is the fear of their kids being left out or bullied in school. In reality, every one of us who have been on the school path, we’ve all felt left out at some point. Daniel Louzonis says that whole fear is a legacy of our schooling.

“My kids don’t know what’s it like to be picked on. Kids do not need to be put in a hostile, toxic, hyper-conformist peer environment to know how to get along with others,” said Daniel Louzonis.

History Of School

I have previously looked into the Trivium Education, where the program focuses on general grammar, formal logic and classical rhetoric. There are just so many healthy alternatives out there to educate our children. And it’s our responsibility as parents to choose the right school or learning method for them.

Speaking of school, Daniel Louzonis shares an interesting trivia on how schools came to be. Schools were invented back in 1850 in Massachusetts. It started as an experiment yet had a poor track record and short history.

Initially, the idea was that children had always gone to age-graded classrooms to learn. And everyone assumed it’s the best way for kids to learn. But, according to Daniel Louzonis, there was no basis for that.

“The powers that be wanted to control people. They saw education as a way to get people to stop thinking for themselves,” said Daniel Louzonis. “They didn’t want labor unrest. But that doesn’t change that fact that mass government compulsory education is about population and mind control.”

Fast forward to the 1950s and 1960s; Daniel Louzonis says the schools had a couple of subsidies that don’t exist today and won’t ever exist again. Number one was the chauvinism subsidy, wherein the smartest women in America became teachers. They were not engaged in any other profession nor were they running large companies.

Daniel Louzonis says the second subsidy was family. The family was always together. Parents were married, not like today where many couples are divorced. In the 1950s, grandparents even lived nearby. Now we don’t have extended family living in one neighborhood anymore.

“But on the contrary, because of the internet, the opportunity to travel, and the flexibility for parents to work from home, there are more opportunities to hyper-accelerate kids,” Daniel Louzonis said.

Learning Progress

Daniel Louzonis says staying all day in a traditional school isn’t always productive for kids. He says not much happens within the six hours that the kids are in school.

Furthermore, Daniel Louzonis says that if schools were teaching kids from 9 am to 3 pm, why do they come home with 3 hours of homework. Whereas in homeschooling, kids are done by noontime.

Don’t Fear Math

Daniel Louzonis assures that math isn’t painful. It’s a tool. On the contrary, he says the school is painful. Studying for tests is painful.

But why do we teach kids math? Daniel Louzonis says it’s because kids need to learn to think in logical sequences. On this note, he recommends the Khan Academy as a great online tool to teach kids math at different levels.

“I teach it totally different compared to schools. And my kids do even better. It’s a very heavy emphasis on computation,” said Daniel Louzonis. “But the big thing is, don’t take time off on weekends. Do it like a half hour or 45 minutes on weekends. Eventually, parents learn to love it, too.”

In doing this, Daniel Louzonis attests that you will never slide back. Plus, your child will feel very confident. It would still be hard, but kids wouldn’t have this math phobia that they will carry with them their whole life. Having a math phobia which pushes people into making bad financial decisions.

As for testing your kids, Daniel Louzonis says some people avoid testing because they don’t want to know what grade their kid is at math. But for Daniel Louzonis, he likes tests as a diagnostic tool. He says schools mainly do testing, and it just stresses kids out. But that doesn’t mean we throw out testing altogether.

Einstein Blueprint

The Einstein Blueprint is Daniel Louzonis’ curriculum on how to hyper-accelerate your kids. He has a whole section called Teach To Learn. Under the curriculum, it encourages the concept that one of the things your kid should be doing is teaching something to somebody else.

“It is broken down into different sections. One of them is strictly about the brain and all the things we need to do ideally to our kid’s brain,” Daniel Louzonis said.

Home School Legal Defense Association

The HSLDA is a Christian organization, and there are legal advocates globally. According to Daniel Louzonis, the organization is behind the reason why homeschooling is recognized by law in all 50 states. People pay to raise money for getting advocates from all over the world who work to ensure the right to homeschool.

“I think that school is so bad that it’s addition by subtraction. A lot of people fail at homeschooling because they weren’t rigorous enough, or because the parents don’t read books to their kids. The way I do homeschooling, it should be getting easier every year,” said Daniel Louzonis. 

He adds, “There are also limiting beliefs that if you homeschool, you have to have a PH.D. degree but you don’t. Beyond that is ideally, you want your kids to be on the path of self-education. It’s about creating a natural curiosity and raising life-long learners.” 

Bio

Daniel Louzonis is an NYC-based child acceleration specialist. He’s a homeschooling coach and a “math genius” teacher. While Ivy League-educated himself – at the University of Pennsylvania – he’s a major advocate and practitioner of “education outside the system.”

Pain Free 

http://learntruehealth.com/pain-free/

People will generally do anything to be pain free. But more often than not, we tend to go overboard with taking medication.  But what if I tell you there’s an affordable, natural solution to be pain free? Sheri Weaver is my guest today who will tell us all about this amazing product.

Initially Clueless

Sheri Weaver admits that three years ago, she really had no education nor experience about this pain free industry. She was initially into designing gemstones and scarf charms. Designing was a big part of her life.

Then tragedy struck. Sheri Weaver friend’s son got shot five times. Fortunately, he did not die but was in the hospital for quite a long time. He was struggling with so much pain, that taking morphine wasn’t enough for him to be pain free.

Sheri Weaver’s friend then went to a Farmers’ Market saw a stall selling natural pain relief products. She sent it to her son and it was effective! Sheri Weaver thought about her mom and her back pain. But rather than wanting some, Sheri Weaver’s mom requested the pain relief product for another good friend who happened to be suffering more than her.  

It was a perfect chance for Sheri Weaver to see how the product works on somebody with severe pain. Sheri Weaver’s mom, later on, reported that her friend got 50% relief from using the product which is really considered miraculous for those suffering from severe cases.

Career Shift

What happened to the friend of Sheri Weaver’s mom was an eye-opener. During her gems events, Sheri Weaver recalled setting up a small table to sell the pain relief products. And within the first two shows, the products sold out!

That moment served as a transitioning point for Sheri Weaver. She now works as a Marketing Representative for the Real Time Pain Relief company. For the past three years, she has helped thousands of people get off pain pills and be pain free. 

Real Time Pain Relief

The Oklahoma-based company was founded in 1998.  The product was developed by a doctor and a high school basketball coach. Initially, the product was developed for their young basketball players to heal from injury and be pain free.

Among the benefits of the cream include relief from pain, provide the bodies with nutrients that heal, cuts inflammation and promotes blood circulation. Real Time Pain Relief contains 19 healing ingredients, 14 ingredients to fight inflammation and 3 ingredients to increase blood circulation.  It is also capable of penetrating 7 layers below the skin surface.

“It has nutrients to help the body recover from injury faster. In 2011, the company opened a vendor program. We had network marketing but recently transitioned to non-network marketing. This is because we are earning shares of stock in the company,” said Sheri Weaver.

The company now offers wholesale and retail products as well as awarding reward points for purchases. They work alongside chiropractors as well as accredited distributors.

Effectiveness Of RTPR Cream

Sheri Weaver says the creams are used by athletes in a variety of sports. It is heavily used among bull riders and marathon runners.

“It helps 80% of the people with one application. As for the other 20%, it’s not going to help with just one application. Those who have severe pain might need to use it 10 days in the morning and night for it to work in your body,” Sheri Weaver said.

She adds, “It’s like taking vitamins. You can’t take one vitamin. You have to build nutrients. And the more you get it in your body, the less you’re going to have to use it. Because nutrients are building on top of nutrients.”

Sheri Weaver also explains that most of the over-the-counter pain relief creams have such high doses of menthol. They actually burn your nerve endings because the content is too high.

“Your body cannot eliminate that much menthol. You feel that instant relief because it’s burning a nerve ending. It’s not doing anything for you as far as healing. And it only goes a couple of layers down. Our highest menthol content is only 2%.”

Usually, the other creams in the market have 7 to 8% menthol content. Then they have very little healing ingredients besides that. Sheri Weaver is also happy to share that with over 2,000 clients that have tried their products, it has proven that RTPR cream is non-addictive.

Kinds Of RTPR Cream

The products under Real Time Pain Relief basically help and muscle, nerve or joint pain. It’s an immediate relief cream. Starting off with the regular pain relief, it has 19 ingredients for healing, fighting inflammation and increasing blood circulation. 

“Applying cream three or four times a day is not going to hurt you. But it’s not going to be effective. Your body can only absorb so much. If it’s a chronic issue, put it on at least two times a day, morning and night. Midday is fine, but you can only absorb so much.”

The Maxx Pain Cream has 2% menthol plus peppermint. Sheri Weaver reveals that it’s what our bull riders use. It can also be used for deep back pain, severe muscle issues, hip pain, and headaches.

The Sports Cream has 24 healing ingredients.  It addresses problems in the joints like knee or elbow issues.

The Hemp Oil is a new product and a bestseller. Sheri Weaver says it basically has ingredients from several of their top products. It contains the regular cream formulation, peppermint ingredient from the Maxx cream, turmeric and nutmeg from the Sports Cream, wasabi extract and a few other ingredients plus hemp oil.

The Neuropathy Foot Cream has the basic formulation plus eucalyptus and tea tree oil. It is used for those who have plantar fasciitis, diabetes, gout, bunions, athletes foot and cracked feet.

Sheri Weaver says the Skin Rescue cream is great for treating acne. It can also be used to treat psoriasis.

Other Products

Other Real Time Pain Relief products include hand creams, medicated lip balms, gentle formula for sensitive skin and young kids, a daily cream and a cream made of vegan ingredients.  They even included a pet formula as well as a pain relief cream in the form of a bath bomb.

“People get hooked because of the benefits of healing. Put at least two layers on. Because the first layer one puts the first one down,” explains Sheri Weaver. “Instead of using two layers of the same product, we also found that if you put one layer of sports and one layer of max, you are actually getting the benefit of both products and doing the same two-layer process.”

Healing ingredients of the RTPR creams include Aloe Vera, arnica, magnesium oil, turmeric extract, emu oil, lavender oil, menthol, nutmeg extract, rosemary oil, willow bark, witch hazel and vitamin E. The company is also planning to come out with supplements that work really well with the creams. 

Open For Business Opportunities

For business opportunities, combo packages and distribution inquiries, Sheri Weaver encourages people to contact her through the website Real Time Pain Relief or email 4painnomore@gmail.com. People may also get in touch by texting her at (909) 228-6621.

They also have a rewards program and an awesome customer special. There’s a $15 online gift card available and can be applied to a $10 tube or you can apply that $15 Gift Card to a package deal for greater savings.  You will also receive a FREE $10 tube of Regular pain relief cream with your order.

For those who would like to get $25 worth of free products, go to www.rtpr.com/activate and type the 8ead5559 activation code.

Pain Free Summit

Sheri Weaver is excited about the Pain Free Summit happening this month. Inspired a passion to help people, thirty different experts will speak about topics on how to be pain free.

Apart from the pain free methods, people will learn about pain free tips strategies and techniques that people can try at home. People will also learn the right foods to decrease pain.

“Anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, and stress add to your pain. It goes far beyond physical injury. Every speaker has helped thousands of people. But it’s up to you to listen and figure out what options you want to try,” said Sheri Weaver.

Sheri Weaver is a Marketing Representative for Real Time Pain Relief products. Inspired to help people become pain free, she has been helping people heal naturally for three years now.

Cheese

http://learntruehealth.com/cheese/

Almost everybody loves cheese.  It’s not surprising because a lot of delicious dishes contain this tasty ingredient.  But what may seem harmless is, unfortunately, the opposite. To shed light on this reality, my guest Dr. Neal Barnard explains why cheese is harmful to our health.

Studying Dead Bodies

Dr. Neal Barnard shares that what led him to medicine was initially different to what led him to food. It was only when he was already in college, that he decided to go to medical school.

Dr. Neal Barnard admits he didn’t appreciate how important food is during those early years. But before he went to medical school, Dr. Neal Barnard had an eye-opening experience handling autopsies at a hospital in Minneapolis.

From a dead body, the pathologist would show Dr. Neal Barnard what heart looks like after a heart attack or what a brain looked like after a stroke. The pathologist would take a section of the corpse’s ribs off and set it on a table to show Dr. Neal Barnard the coronary arteries.

Dr. Neal Barnard remembered cleaning up a corpse one day and proceeded to have lunch at the hospital cafe. The cafeteria happened to serve ribs that day which immediately turned him off.

“Time went on, and I started to connect to foods we eat as well as health issues. I  started to understand the bigger issues like how animals are abused and how the environment is affected,” said Dr. Neal Barnard.

He adds, “I was selectively inattentive to what animals go through. So I have been making up for lost time. I changed my diet and now endeavoring people to change theirs.” 

Clogged Arteries

Dr. Neal Barnard explains that there are different kinds of fats. The grease extracted from bacon is called saturated fat. This kind of fat causes our body to make more cholesterol particles. And that’s what does damage to the arteries.

“Fat works in a bad way, but it’s more indirect. It stimulates your body to make more cholesterol, then it starts clogging arteries,” said Dr. Neal Barnard. “And I have to say meat is not the number one source. The number one source is dairy. Cheese, butter, yogurt, ice cream top the list.”

The Truth About Dairy

According to Dr. Neal Barnard, dairy is high in fat and saturated fat. It’s surprisingly high in sodium, and a lot of salt is made in the cheese-making process. There’s more sodium in cheese than potato chips. That makes cheese very high in cholesterol content.

The Cheese Trap

Dr. Neal Barnard shares that he wrote The Cheese Trap after doing so many research studies. He cites the research conducted in Rochester, New York which revealed that the more cheese men ate, the lower their sperm counts were. Another research showed that people who had the most saturated fats had three times more risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease compared to people who avoided cheese.

Most of Dr. Neal Barnard’s research proved that there is no oil at all in vegan diets. Because of that, people with diabetes got better. They lost weight dramatically, blood pressure, as well as cholesterol levels, went down.

But then Dr. Neal Barnard also noticed that a fair number of people who were part of the study admitted they miss eating cheese. Through The Cheese Trap book, Dr. Neal Barnard enumerates the reasons why.

Why We Love Cheese

First of all, cheese which contains casein is fatty and salty. It also has casomorphins or the dairy protein.  Opiate molecules comprise the dairy protein. And when dairy protein is consumed, the fragments attach to the same brain receptors that narcotics and heroin attach to.

“Milk has casein, too. But when you turn the milk into cheese, you get rid of the whey. You are concentrating the protein and fat. As the protein concentrates, the casomorphin content goes up,” said Dr. Neal Barnard.

He adds, “Cheese is dairy crack. It’s not surprising to get hooked on this stuff. That’s ok if it wasn’t harmful. But it’s loaded with cholesterol and fat. It has hormones in it, too.”

Harsh Reality

Dr. Neal Barnard says meat is a now big issue, and so is cheese. The life expectancy in Japan is falling compared to the years past. Obesity is increasing, and diabetes has increased dramatically. Although cheese is not entirely to blame, it’s a big part why many are suffering from illnesses.

In the United States, meat consumption has dropped by 10% in the last decade. But the rate of cheese consumption is rapidly increasing. That’s why Dr. Neal Barnard says more Americans are not getting skinnier or healthier.

Initiate Change

Dr. Neal Barnard declares that it’s really up to us to make the changes in our life. Getting away from animal products should top the list.

He also says that every few years, a new low carb book comes out. But this is only a short-term fad. People lose weight because they cut down on carbs or starch and sugars.

“It’s healthy for you to eat starch because it breaks down the glucose that your cells run on. About 50% of what we eat is carbs. When we stop eating carbs, we will lose weight. Essentially, if you take out half of what you eat, you’ll lose weight,” Dr. Neal Barnard said.

He adds, “But this was never the issue with diabetes. If you look at Japan before the westernization of the diet, they were eating rice-based dishes. But people had minimal cases of diabetes.”

Dr. Neal Barnard’s research team put this to the test using low-fat vegan diets. Using no animal products at all, people who have diabetes indeed improved dramatically. In some cases, diabetes goes away. 

How To Transition

Ready for a change? Good for you! Dr. Neal Barnard suggests taking baby steps with a 7-day challenge. Don’t take anything out of your diet, but instead,  explore plant-based foods for seven days.

“Figure out which ones you like. Write down breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. In each category, figure out which foods you like. Try healthy plant-based foods. After a week, you’ll have a list full of foods that you discovered you like and works for you,” said Dr. Neal Barnard.

The next step is to try going completely vegan all the time for three weeks. At the end of 3 weeks you’ll see that you’re losing weight, cholesterol is improving, blood sugar, energy, and digestion are all getting better. Your taste in food will eventually start to change, too.

Among the nutrient-rich foods, Dr. Neal Barnard recommends tofu, nuts, seeds, mangoes, and spinach.  He explains all the benefits in detail in his Power Foods For The Brain book.

“Change your diet now and prevent disease. Leave the cows in peace. The healthy food groups are whole grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes, and beans. A plant-based diet gives you the nutrition you need. Keep the oils low.

Mainstream Media vs. Truths Of Holistic Medicine

http://learntruehealth.com/mainstream-media/

Mainstream Media And What They’re Hiding

Mainstream media was caught covering up the truth so many times.  This not only goes for the Holistic world but in other situations as well. Mainstream media cover-ups have become the norm for those who want to protect their interests. But people like Holistic Health Activist Erin Elizabeth has been defying mainstream media to expose several truths in the health space.

Vaccine Injury Survivor

Erin Elizabeth is an adopted child who worked for a non-profit organization for some years in college. She was a sickly child and recalls developing a high fever from vaccines but survived.

Erin Elizabeth went on to tackle several health challenges throughout life. This includes having surgery to take out her saline implants because it caused a significant weight gain. Her experiences, as a result, gave her the motivation to help people with health issues as well.

The Health Nut Website

Because mainstream media didn’t divulge the truth all the time, Erin Elizabeth saw the need to start her website. So, in 2014, The Health Nut News was born.

Her initial aim was to help other people with vaccine injury. It, later on, progressed into exposing alleged cover-ups of the mainstream media on harmful additives, vaccines and the dangers of taking medication.

But like any venture that needs financial support, Erin Elizabeth saw the need to start a small product line four years later to support the website. I think Erin Elizabeth is doing an excellent mission with her website. It allows us to bring real health information to the forefront.

With so many companies looking out for their vested interests, we have to become our own doctor and health advocate. Every health professional out there also doesn’t have the time to stay on top of absolutely everything. So, no matter how great your naturopath or chiropractor is, it is still up to us to be responsible for our health. 

Stem Cells

Famous actress Angelina Jolie took us all by surprise when mainstream media reported that she had a double mastectomy. The mainstream media went on to say that the actress did it as a preventive measure for breast cancer. Articles further explained that this was after medical doctors discovered that Angelina Jolie carried the “‘faulty gene” BRCA and had an 87 percent risk of contracting the dreaded disease.

But according to Erin Elizabeth, Angelina Jolie’s decision was not the best way to solve the situation. On the contrary, Erin Elizabeth applauds actress Suzanne Sommers’ stand on promoting stem cell or natural alternatives to battle breast cancer.

“Some of the big clinics are now implementing stem cells from bone marrow and adipose, as well as now implementing amniotic fluid into their practices,” said Erin Elizabeth. “It is questionable if there are viable stem cells. But it is safe to use one zone stem cells. I think it would be safer to use your own stem cells.”

Over a year ago, I interviewed an expert on stem cells. It was interesting to hear the different ways on how we can extract our own stem cells, as well as find out which methods are more effective.

Big Health Controversies

There have been so many health controversies that big companies have tried to hide. One scandal was the fact that all vaccines have abortive fetal tissue in them. In effect, all those who are pro-life should also be anti-vaccine people.

Did you know that Pepsi and other food companies use an abortive fetal tissue to make certain flavors? A lot of industries primarily use dead human beings to make their products. Indeed, bad experiences are good for us to learn and to grow from.

“It is scary that it is still going on. And a lot of people don’t know that,” said Erin Elizabeth.

Another controversial topic that Erin Elizabeth has exposed on her website is the issue of Holistic doctor deaths. Many cases are still currently under investigation. The sudden deaths have apparent connections with one another, and it’s sad to know that many were best-selling authors and respected names in the Holistic world.

Fasting

Erin Elizabeth reveals that she does a water-only type of fasting. But she has to be careful with adrenal exhaustion. Her hometown was hit by a hurricane recently, and Erin Elizabeth vows to dive into a full five-day fasting once she has re-settled.

Incidentally, I interviewed Dr. Darren Schmidt just recently. He said lactic acidosis is the root cause of most diseases. And a five-day water only fasting brings about the stem cells.

So many speculations have sprouted around stem cells and fasting. For example, we’ve often been told that after the age of 24, stem cells are minimal in the body. Personally, I think that’s like medical doctors saying we can’t regrow cartilage. 

Recovering From Lyme Disease

Erin Elizabeth shares that she developed Lyme disease from her 8th-grade camping trip. She was tall for her age, so medical doctors merely said it was just growing pains. As a result, she had to put up with that condition from 1984 to around 2011 or 2012.

“There are more cases of Lyme in Pennsylvania than any other state. But I didn’t realize that. Then I had serious weight gain with breast implants, so I got the implants out,” Erin Elizabeth recalls.

Erin Elizabeth also narrates that as soon as she found out she had Lyme disease, she initially did high-intensity workouts, but it didn’t work. So she switched to yoga which helped. Pilates is also a good option.

Accepting Her Body

After her years of health ordeals, Erin Elizabeth has learned to accept her body the way it is. She also says healing the gut is essential. So, by switching her diet, Erin Elizabeth makes sure the food she consumes is non-GMO and plant-based.

Despite the norm, Erin Elizabeth decided not to do antibiotics. She instead indulges in saunas once a week upon the advice of her acupuncturist. I can relate to the benefits of doing saunas since I have my own Sunlighten sauna.

A past guest, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt recommends not staying in a sauna for more than 40 minutes. Ideally, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says to only stay in a sauna for five to ten minutes. Then take a one-minute cold shower, lie down for 5 minutes, drink water and then repeat the whole procedure two more times.

Weight Gain

Contrary to popular belief, weight gain happens not because one is lazy.  There are so many complicated reasons, so it’s not important to focus on the number on the weighing scale. What you should be looking out for is fighting toxicity that causes weight gain.  This apart from the effects of implants or viral infections.

“Millenials or Gen X have to work way harder to lose weight than the Baby Boomers.  This is due to endocrine disruptors, pesticides, air quality and processed foods,” said Erin Elizabeth.

Quality Food

Aside from shifting from a high intensity to a low-intensity workout, Erin Elizabeth encourages people to grow their own food devoid of chemicals.  In fact, Erin Elizabeth grows her own mangoes.

I recall a great video documentary which focused on how to grow food naturally.  Back to Eden gardening features Paul Gautschi, who is a staunch advocate of the deep mulch gardening method.

Whatever diet program you do, the most important thing is to pay attention to your bloodwork and do it with the help of a trusted doctor. Doing unsupervised diet programs may end up damaging your health rather than improving it. No one should be on one diet their entire life. Find balance and use food as a medicine to heal the body.

“I did several raw vegan programs. Some experts say that 80% good health is the diet but everybody is different,” said Erin Elizabeth. 

Bio

Erin Elizabeth is a long-time activist with a passion for the healing arts, working in that arena for a quarter century. Her site HealthNutNews.com is barely four years old but cracked the top 20 Natural Health sites worldwide. 

Erin Elizabeth is an author, public speaker, and has recently done some TV and film programs for some of her original work which has attracted international media coverage. She was the recipient for the Doctors Who Rock “Truth in Journalism award for 2017.

Naturopathic Gardening

http://learntruehealth.com/naturopathic-gardening/

Have you ever heard of Naturopathic gardening? Chances are, you may not have heard of it or hardly know anything about it. Naturopathic gardening is the practice of growing without the use of chemicals.  But there’s more to Naturopathic gardening.  My guest today, Dr. Jenn Dazey explains why in this episode.

Working At A Health Shop

Dr. Jenn Dazey recalls that when she was a young kid, her mom would teach classes on wild greens and edible plants. Her student called her mom the edible weed lady rather than calling her a herbalist.

When Dr. Jenn Dazey became a teenager, she got a part-time job in a shop, although she didn’t know what the shop was. Working under the table for 5 dollars an hour in Duvall, Washington, Dr. Jenn Dazey learned so much about herbs. It was not long before Dr. Jenn Dazey realized she already acquired quite a bit of knowledge.

“I had always wanted to be a doctor and planned to go to formal medical school. But working in that herb shop opened my eyes to the fact that people don’t always agree with mainstream medicine,” said Dr. Jenn Dazey.

She adds, “In fact, sometimes people get harmed with surgeries that they didn’t necessarily choose. They end up with associated nerve damage or the toxicity related to medications taken from chronic conditions.”

Choosing Bastyr University

At a very young age, Dr. Jenn Dazey realized that medical school wasn’t exactly what she was looking for. She wanted to help people. But the herbs, plants, and nutrition spoke to her more strongly than learning just about drugs and formal medical protocols.

“When I was looking at different medical schools, somebody came in and asked me what my plans were. They assumed I was going to Bastyr University. When Bastyr moved closer to home in 1996, I took it as a sign and enrolled,” Dr. Jenn Dazey said.

Teaching In Bastyr University

Dr. Jenn Dazey is currently one of the core faculty of Bastyr University. She has been teaching for 15 years and teaches organic gardening. Organic gardening is parallel to how Naturopathic medicine works. It is also known as Naturopathic gardening.

“When you learn how important your gut microflora is to your overall health and well-being, you can understand how important their bacteria, fungi, and soil are to the soil’s well-being. And the ability for the plants to have bioavailable nutrients readily in the soil,” said Dr. Jenn Dazey. 

She adds, “When you put the chemicals down, that’s the finished product of the bacterial breakdown of compost. Plants don’t eat compost. They depend on the “gut flora” to process that compost into bioavailable nutrients. Plants take the sun’s energy, carbon, and water. About 75% of that sugar is used as food to maintain the bacteria in the soil.”

Builders And Destroyers

Dr. Jenn Dazey shares that in her university class, she makes students do an exercise called the Builders and the Destroyers. She divides the room in half and partnerships, and students write a recipe.

One is a recipe for destruction. Dr. Jenn Dazey’s students come up with the worse thing they can think of to till the soil. They flip it to the other side of the room, and the Builders have a recipe for rehabilitating that.

“You have to be realistic with what zone you’re in and what varieties are worth trying in those zones. Although I’m constantly amazed that seed savers and plant breeders are coming up with new varieties that are adaptive to short seasons. Under all circumstances, diversity is the key to resilience,” said Dr. Jenn Dazey.

Dr. Jenn Dazey also adds that merely refraining from using chemicals doesn’t guarantee that the soil will be able to produce crops. She says we need to do much more and know the signs and symptoms of when to take action.

Understanding Naturopathic Gardening

In Naturopathic gardening, no chemicals are used to grow plants. But according to Dr. Jenn Dazey, there are many benefits to gardening in general.

We sequester a lot of carbon out of the atmosphere by keeping a garden. Plus, plants have this incredible ability to photosynthesize. When we’re actively building soil in an organic garden, it takes a significant amount of carbon from the atmosphere and puts it into the ground.

“As a gardener doing Naturopathic gardening, you’re going to want to treat the garden more as a whole living system,” said Dr. Jenn Dazey. “Take that Holistic approach even further, where you’re supporting an ecosystem. And creating the ability for the soil to produce nutritious food for years.” 

Biodynamic Farming

Biodynamic farming is slightly different from organic or Naturopathic gardening. Developed by Rudolph Steiner in 1924, biodynamic farming is the first of the organic agriculture movements.

According to Dr. Jenn Dazey, one example of biodynamic farming is taking raw fresh cow manure from a lactating cow and stuffing it into a horn of a lactating cow. It initially takes some pondering to make complete sense. But you don’t need to go that far to be a Holistic farmer.

“There are some very specific preparations and times of the season that you can do things. Biodynamic farming takes organic to a much different level. I do love biodynamics, but I think there’s a learning curve there,” Dr. Jenn Dazey said.

Benefits of Tea

Dr. Jenn Dazey reveals that tinctures weren’t a thing yet back in the early 90s. Bulk herbs were. She says there are qualities to tea that are therapeutic, like the process of making the tea.

But then simply just having plain hot water without any herbs in it is going to be warming. It also helps open pores and gives you more vitality through the heat. Dr. Jenn Dazey recommends infusing most of the tonic teas overnight. And drinking the next day or soaking it for a minimum of one hour.

“Or if you have a cold infusion, cold water is going to be refreshing and have a medicinal quality to it without any herbs. Of course, it depends on which herbs you put in there,” Dr. Jenn Dazey said. “Whether it’s going to be mild, gentle and safe or something that you need to pay attention to dosage, side effects or therapeutic threshold.” 

Healthy Food

Dr. Jenn Dazey affirms that most fresh fruits and vegetables support a healthy immune system. They make the body alkalize and help regulate proper digestion. She says it’s a daily detox of sorts when you can have fresh greens and cooked vegetables in every meal.

Dr. Jenn Dazey cites that kale, brassicas, and cabbage are antioxidants. Brassicas can prevent and fight cancer and inflammation on several different levels. Kelp or seaweed is also a good source of nutrition.

I learned to love kale, and I use kale leaves as a taco shell. For the filling, I have all sorts of stir-fry vegetables and healthy seasonings. The combinations are endless and best of all; it’s healthy and delicious!

“We have an instinct to go after nutrient-dense superfoods. When you’re looking at the mineral profiles of seaweed, it’s pretty intense how that works. For a plant to have a high mineral content on land, it simply has to diffuse with the mineral content of the surrounding water,” explains Dr. Jenn Dazey.

She adds, “For a plant to have a high mineral content in seawater, it needs to hyper-accumulate minerals to a very high level. The potassium levels in seaweed, for example, are going to be miles ahead. A hundred times more than the potassium levels of any land plant that you could encounter.”

Naturopathic Gardening Book

Dr. Jenn Dazey has a book called Naturopathic Gardening: A Basic Gardening Text for Students of Natural Medicine.  It’s currently available on the Bastyr University website.

“It’s a bridge to understanding Naturopathic philosophy by the analogies of the garden. You can make soil vibrant and vital as long as you treat it like a whole living system,” Dr. Jenn Dazey said. “Dig as deep as you can in that one spot and take a little slice of soil out. Depending on what that soil is composed of, you’ll know automatically what to add back.”

Dr. Jenn Dazey also shares that there’s a technique called double digging. This is where you work the surface and the layers underneath separately. We are actively disturbing the soil in the garden. And very particular plants are already programmed in that soil to germinate and start growing.

Apart from the Naturopathic Gardening book, Dr. Jenn Dazey is also slated to launch a recipe book where there’s a section on user-friendly recipes on seaweed. So watch out for that!

Effects In Patients

Getting into Naturopathic gardening has had a lot of positive effects on people.  Dr. Jenn Dazey says she found out her patients enjoy their food more by cooking more regularly.

The food that they eat changes. And all it takes is one little breakthrough to transform someone’s affinity for plants in general. There is no set type of vegetables to grow because everyone has different tastes.  So Dr. Jenn Dazey highly encourages growing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

“Just like Naturopathic Medicine, it has a different perspective. When you garden with the same philosophy, you have to stand back and look at the whole garden as one living organism. See what your role is before you take action,” said Dr. Jenn Dazey.

Lactic Acidosis

http://learntruehealth.com/lactic-acidosis/

Lactic acidosis causes many health conditions.  But unfortunately, only a few people know this. So, I’m thrilled that Dr. Darren Schmidt is here today to explain all there is to know about lactic acidosis. Do you know that diet is a significant part of the treatment? Read on to find out how.

Early Exposure                                                      

Dr. Darren Schmidt says he didn’t have a moment in his career where he went from conventional to Holistic. Growing up on a commercial farm, Dr. Darren Schmidt started working there when he was nine years old.

But then Dr. Darren Schmidt also has vivid memories of following his dad around at the age of 6. He saw things related to spraying chemicals on fields wherein the bugs would grow back faster. He observed that something was amiss and knew at that time that his brain worked differently.

Chiropractor School

When Dr. Darren Schmidt was in college, he decided to go to a chiropractor school. Halfway through his schooling, he went to a seminar given by Dr. Joe Wallach. Attending the workshop apparently influenced his decision to become a chiropractor who focuses on nutrition.

Dr. Darren Schmidt graduated in 1997. He practiced as a conventional chiropractor for a year but started studying nutrition way back in 1994 even before he started school.

Dr. Darren Schmidt did multi-testing and supplements, as well as looking for a useful technique to treat people. He eventually found one in 2004. The method indeed helped figure out cases in the next ten to twelve years.

Finding A Cure

Dr. Darren Schmidt recalls experiencing heart palpitations in 2015. The pain worsened by early 2016. The next few months were spent finding the right treatment. One treatment involved having a machine to measure clogging in the artery as well as the health of the heart.

Dr. Darren Schmidt claimed that his diet wasn’t the culprit. His diet consisted of real carbohydrates with no bread, sugar nor pasta.

During this time, Dr. Darren Schmidt happened to come across some of his notes from a past seminar he attended a few years earlier. It involved some supplements and protocols for the heart. Dr. Darren Schmidt started taking them, and within two days, he knew he was on the right track.

Dr. Darren Schmidt went back to the notes and started studying beriberi, which according to his notes, that’s what he had. He got books about it from bookstores, as well as University of Michigan’s historical medical library on beriberi. But after reading it, Dr. Darren Schmidt realized that it wasn’t his illness.  

B Vitamins

According to Dr. Darren Schmidt, medical nutrition books from way back 1940s already identified around 50 to 100 B vitamins. They would compress with each other to form different B vitamins.

“It contains nutritional yeast and wheatgerms. That was one of the products that I took beginning 2016. It got me through the summer of 2016,” recalls Dr. Darren Schmidt. “During the summer, I felt worse during rainy days, and my pulse would go up. My pulse would be 130, then 120. Some days it would be below 80. The normal level is 60, and yet I felt I was still missing something.”

Black Molds

So many of us are caught unaware that being in a toxic environment puts us at risk for black molds.  Black molds can cause a variety of respiratory problems. Among the symptoms are chronic sneezing and coughing, eye irritation, persistent headaches and chronic fatigue. 

“Molds will cause the formation of lactic acid, methane and carbon dioxide. When we have black mold in the body, it causes the blood to get dirty. There will be a deficiency of oxygen in the blood that makes the cell starve, and they die,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt.

Causes Of Chronic Disease

Dr. Darren Schmidt says the leading causes of chronic disease are those who have excess sugar metabolism, toxins whether it’s heavy metals or chemicals, and the third is hidden infections.  Hidden infections include fungus, parasites, and virus sitting in the lungs that cause asthma. He also says nutrient deficiency is likewise a factor. 

“The reason why people get cold is when they have hypothyroidism. This is also the reason why muscle problems are so common with various diseases. It is a big missing link in all of healthcare,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt.

Lactic Acidosis

Dr. Darren Schmidt says lactic acidosis the most common mechanism of chronic disease. He also revealed that the Father of Holistic Psychiatry Dr. Abram Hoffer, even talked about it extensively primarily since it was what everyone was trying to fix.

“Lactic acidosis technically means having a high amount of lipase in the blood. When you’re eating an excess amount of carbs, waste products forms. Lactate is one of them,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. “The 75% lactate goes back into becoming a fuel. And 25% of it needs to be cleaned. It has to be cleaned by the liver and other cells.”

But Dr. Darren Schmidt adds, if you are toxic and your organs aren’t working very well, the lactate will accumulate in the blood. And if you’re eating a lot of sugar despite your liver working well, you can still accumulate too much lactate in the blood.

“There are three other waste products related to this. One of them is alcohol. Acetaldehyde which is the hangover feeling, and acetate,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. “So, think of the hangover feeling when people overeat pasta. They feel bloated, brain fog and headache later on. That’s acetaldehyde from eating too many carbs.” 

Cell Reaction

Even if the lactate level is normal in the blood, the cells will have a hard time absorbing oxygen because the cells are still holding other toxins. When this happens, the cells have a decision to make, whether to turn to lactic acid fermentation or die.

“Dr. Otto Warburg, the Father of Physiology, figured out how cells turn into cancer. It’s lactic acid fermentation. The cell uses lactate as their fuel. It’s an old physiological process that our cells used to do two billion years ago on the planet when there was no oxygen in the atmosphere,” Dr. Darren Schmidt said. 

He adds, “The moment you add oxygen back in, the cells are supposed to go back to normal glycolysis and mitochondrial energy production which requires oxygen. But if the cells do not convert back to regular metabolism, even in the presence of oxygen, that’s cancer.”

So apparently, that’s what Dr. Otto Warburg figured out. He got a Nobel Prize on how the B vitamins play a role in this. One solution to get well is taking B vitamins and supplements. The other solution is ketosis. Sugar levels will drop, ketones go up, and the body burns fat.

Heart Matters

The heart is a muscle. It’s beating all the time. It cannot stop and convert over to lactic acid fermentation, unlike other cells.

Dr. Darren Schmidt reveals that usually in an autopsy, the doctor would report a clot that caused the heart attack. But in reality, it’s the lactic acidosis that killed a little bit of heart tissue, making the heart beat differently.

“Holistic doctors specialize in thyroid, and it’s challenging because they’re not addressing lactic acidosis. Once you fix that up, the muscles start to become less painful and less crampy,” Dr. Darren Schmidt said.

Muscle cells

Dr. Darren Schmidt says the muscle cells are more likely to die rather than turn into cancer. So, what happens when muscle cells die? They tighten up.

Two days later, muscles become lose because the muscle proteins have broken down. But then rigor mortis happens in your chest. That’s why people get angina and anxiety.

“There are three locations for anxiety—stomach, chest, brain. The word anxiety means tightening or narrowing. So just imagine the muscle cells are tight and that it’s due to lactic acidosis. The muscles become narrow and tighten up, that’s why it is hard to breathe,” Dr. Darren Schmidt said.  

Proper Diet

Dr. Darren Schmidt confidently says a vegan diet cleans the blood. But he doesn’t know if it stops lactic acidosis formation. Dr. Darren Schmidt however, was quick to add that a plant-based diet is better than the standard American diet. 

“The ketogenic diet was previously called the diet that mimics fasting. But I think the missing point here is that a lot of people think that a ketogenic diet is a high protein diet. Eggs, for example, are not ketogenic,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt.

Dr. Darren Schmidt tells his students to get into a 2 to 1 ratio. Two grams of fat, versus 1 gram of protein plus carbs. That’s ketosis for most people. For those with a more severe condition, like heart disease, cancer, or diabetes, Dr. Darren Schmidt recommends going for a 3 to 1 or 4 to 1 ratio so they can have way more fat. 

“So basically, you’re lifting the fat grams up. Your blood becomes steady, and sugar, as well as protein, goes down in the blood. Now the cells convert into burning fat because that’s the only fuel that they have,” Dr. Darren Schmidt said.

Dr. Darren Schmidt says vegan doctors typically say that disease is caused by fat in the cells. They end up recommending eating a bunch of plants and no fat to clean the fat out of the cell.

“What I’m saying is that you raise the fat way up high, still eat produce, and you get the same exact result. But I think it’s better because now you’re in ketosis and ketones kill cancer cells,” said Dr. Darren Schmidt. “And your body is now eating away excess pathological tissue. This is how I get rid of fibroids, cysts, and molds. Fat cells and tumors also get smaller.”

Success Stories

Dr. Darren Schmidt shares the has had seven patients reduce their cancer by doing ketosis and fixing lactic acidosis. Their diets are varied because everyone is different. Some can consume fruit, and some don’t. That’s why Dr. Darren Schmidt offers an individualized nutrition program to clients.

White bread, white sugar, white flour products, and white rice are out. Another thing is that only meat that’s consistently ketogenic is pork vegan. According to Dr. Darren Schmidt, meat is not ketogenic.

Dr. Darren Schmidt also offers muscle testing techniques which are a combination of several methods. But he says the bigger picture is knowing the physiology which he says is called Follow The Physiology technique. When you see the body is declining in health, you reverse engineer it and bring it back.

Good Fat Company

Dr. Darren Schmidt along with other colleagues currently offers an assorted line of products promoting good fats on a regular basis. One popular product is the Ketodamia Bar made from organic cacao butter along with other ingredients.

Cacao butter has been proven to protect the heart from heart disease. Other notable products include banana nut bread and peanut butter dark chocolate.  There are more so go ahead and check out the website.

Bio

Dr. Darren Schmidt, D.C. has been in practice since 1997, immediately focusing on hardcore holistic nutrition, herbology, and homeopathy. He graduated from the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, IL. 

Dr. Darren Schmidt has been in Ann Arbor, Michigan since 2000 establishing one of the larger nutrition practices in the country with multiple practitioners of various licenses but the same purpose and similar techniques. He taught for a nutrition training company for eight years, teaching 77-weekend seminars on muscle testing, clinical nutrition, and healing protocols. 

In January of 2016, Dr. Darren Schmidt was unknowingly chronically exposed to toxic black mold which caused life-threatening symptoms. After two days of taking nutritional products that were developed in 1934, he felt better and dove into the formulator’s articles to discover what he knew that was life-saving 82 years later. 

What was discovered was Nutritional Deficiency Lactic Acidosis, the most common mechanism of chronic disease. It was commonly known by all doctors from 1920 through 1960, then forgotten. 

Dr. Darren Schmidt also co-founded The Good Fat Company which makes the Good Fat Bar help people get into ketosis. He also co-founded Power Nutrition Practice, a training company for nutrition practitioners including clinical and business education.

Finding Hope In Darkness

http://learntruehealth.com/finding-hope/

When we’re depressed or overwhelmed with problems, it’s hard finding hope. That is why it is essential to find a good support system to lift you out of that darkness. My guest today is a survivor. Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Doris Dahdouh is here to tell us all about her journey of finding hope.

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition last year. The courses are fabulous and I highly encourage everyone to sign up for their classes.  It’s perfect for anyone who would want to become a health coach or simply enhance your knowledge about nutrition.

Social Work

Doris Dahdouh says her journey to becoming a health coach started with her always having the heart to help people in finding hope. She ended up in the social work field and had a lucrative career that spanned twelve years.

Doris Dahdouh started in a community working with teens in crisis, children, foster families, and former prisoners who are beginning to get back into the community. It was not long after when Doris Dahdouh moved into the school field. 

Health Crisis

Doris Dahdouh worked as a school social worker for eight years. It was during this period that she noticed that she was progressively getting sick. She noticed that she was mainly getting sick around two and a half weeks before getting her period. 

Some of her symptoms included being emotional, overly upset and depressed. She often felt angry, yet she found it hard to control her feelings. Physical symptoms include bloating, heartburn, joint pains and the sense of nausea. That was her health condition from 19 to 36 years old.

Doris Dahdouh consulted many doctors, but none of them could give an accurate diagnosis. She was on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications to cope with her condition.

Doris Dahdouh even recalls one OB-gyne diagnosed her to have PCOS because she was overweight and pre-diabetic at that time. Her hair was thinning yet Doris Dahdouh was put on birth control, thyroid medication, pre-diabetic medication.

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

Things weren’t getting any better for Doris Dahdouh when she pursued further studies in graduate school. With numerous health problems, it was hard finding hope beyond the darkness.

“I was in graduate school when I got progressively worse. I did some research and came across premenstrual dysphoric disorder or PMDD,” said Doris Dahdouh. “At that time, nobody knew what it was. I had to educate some of the doctors about it, but still, they would not take me seriously. It was frustrating.”

When a woman has PMDD, they usually experience severe depression symptoms, irritability, and tension before getting their period. PMDD is different from PMS or premenstrual syndrome because the symptoms are more severe.

Because Doris Dahdouh’s health condition was erratic, she had to take strong medications. She was eventually deemed unfit by her work superiors to continue working and was later on relieved from her job.

Discovering Yoga

Doris Dahdouh discovered the joy of practicing yoga when she left her social work job. Meditating, going to church and trying to take off some medication was her slow journey to finding hope.

“When I started my transformation, there was a time when I went cold turkey and got off of everything. But I realized it should be done gradually,” said Doris Dahdouh. “My yoga time was letting my body benefit from all of the positive results of moving it, stretching it and letting the toxins out. There were a lot of things I didn’t know about until I went to yoga.”

Doris Dahdouh affirms that some yoga poses would help lift up one’s mood. The emotions would come out, and it felt amazing. That felt like a breakthrough for her finding hope in getting rid of health problems. Doris Dahdouh’s teacher also taught her poses for detoxing. Apparently, anything with a twist would let out the toxins.

“It’s about being still. Just being in that moment is helpful for a person’s well-being. Because you’re not thinking about what if,” Doris Dahdouh said. “You’re not thinking about what happened, but rather you’re thinking about the need to be present right now. And that was helpful.” 

Hitting Rock Bottom

It was not long after when Doris Dahdouh decided to see a kinesiologist upon a friend’s suggestion. The session was expensive, and Doris Dahdouh was tested for issues with thyroid and gut health. From there, Doris Dahdouh felt everything started to make sense.

“If you have a lot of thyroid issues, your heart is also going to have an issue. And I was overly exhausted. Finally, someone is validating,” recalls Doris Dahdouh. “There was so much outside stress on top of the inside stress that was going on in my body. It was a year of darkness. I had to see the kinesiologist every six weeks.”

Things were initially looking up, but a few months after the diagnosis, Doris Dahdouh spiraled downwards. She wanted to end her life because she was tired of waking up with anxiety, darkness and hopelessness.

“There’s a lot of emotions surrounding that story. Because I think about the person I was. I saw myself as an outside person. But something just told me not to do it,” said Doris Dahdouh. “I committed to doing the protocol, and the heaviness came back. My hope came from the Holy Spirit and my father, so I told myself to keep taking supplements.”

Diet Changes

Doris Dahdouh says remembering her days as a social worker; there was this element of health that was missing. She wished there were more health and nutrition classes in graduate school for those who want to be counselors, too.  Because apparently, a lot of mental health is indeed associated with people’s reactions to food or intolerances to food.

“The doctor did not alter my diet. But I was doing some reading myself about organic and gluten-free foods. Gluten causes inflammation, foggy brain and depression symptoms. It messes with the hormones. So I was very strict with my diet,” said Doris Dahdouh.

Slowly but surely, Doris Dahdouh started to see slight changes. A few months after hitting rock bottom and eating right, her health symptoms began to disappear. She recalls feeling symptoms a little before ovulation time, and it was getting to a point where Doris Dahdouh was shocked whenever her period comes on time.

I believe there has to be a stronger stance against serving fast food or unhealthy food in within the public school system. I recently had Dr. Joel Fuhrman on the show. And I’m currently reading his The Food Genocide book. The book states that there is a 40% chance of getting heart disease if you eat one meal a week that is processed food.  

The risk of heart attack increases to 89% if you eat fried foods every day. I also had Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn who says more kids now have early signs of heart disease. Ultimately, we have to look at our belief system and change our relationship with food before it’s too late.

Doris Dahdouh is also dairy-free, although it just happened in the past year and a half. She decided to give up dairy because she noticed having a hormonal reaction to it. 

“I researched and saw that I didn’t need dairy. Being flexible is very important. It’s not just being flexible to what you’re eating or how you eat,” Doris Dahdouh said. “But it is being flexible to the fact that you change as a person. Diet can change, the situation can change, and it’s okay because that’s what life is all about.”

Finding The Institute For Integrative Nutrition

Doris Dahdouh was reading a lot of articles because she was implementing a lot of what she was learning into her life. Then chanced upon an Institute For Integrative Nutrition (IIN) ad and a friend who also saw it encouraged Doris Dahdouh to enroll.

Doris Dahdouh looked into the school curriculum and the sample class. After finding out the tuition details, she discussed the matter thoroughly with her dad. It took her another month to decide on signing up for courses.

Joshua Rosenthal is the IIN founder and his background in counseling helped Doris Dahdouh decide in enrolling at IIN. Doris Dahdouh started her online classes in January 2015 and eventually moved to California to see if she could start a business there.

Working With IIN

Learning from her past employment, Doris Dahdouh dealt with so much stress when she became too involved with her clients and workload. This time around, she decided to take baby steps.

Doris Dahdouh again joined the workforce by doing counseling sessions part-time. Shortly after, she found out IIN had a vacancy at the admissions department. She applied and eventually got accepted.

“I help people enroll in really great programs. It’s not just informative when it comes to health, primary foods, and diet. But there’s that personal transformation,” said Doris Dahdouh. “There’s a part of me that changed. I don’t see that I can’t do anything anymore. It’s amazing how your brain can shift.”

This June, it’ll be two years that Doris Dahdouh has been working for IIN. She says there’s something in the program where you learn to connect with someone, and people usually make some significant positive changes.

“This is something that is very needed because people need that support. They know they need to make the changes. You need that person who you can ask questions, and they can check in with you. Being held accountable is very important to your success,” said Doris Dahdouh.

Annual retreats and weekly office massages are just some of the employee perks at IIN. Doris Dahdouh says she deals with a lot of client referrals and the post-grad classes, in particular, are in demand.

According to Doris Dahdouh, many people usually sign up for IIN’s Launch Your Dream Book course. Apparently, many IIN graduates have become top sellers on Amazon and some even become personal chefs.

Looking Ahead

Doris Dahdouh has indeed come a long way from where she started. Getting out of the darkness, her perseverance and resilience are now paying off.

“Put time and effort, and you will see results. You are not going to see a result of something if you don’t maintain or put the work in,” said Doris Dahdouh. “And you also have to follow the tools that are given to you. They are given to you for a reason because it works.”

Doris Dahdouh believes that no matter how well your walking in your life and your path, there’s always going to be some stress. There’s still going to be an emotion to react to something. We tend to feel it in our body but tend to ignore it.

“Know that there is hope. Sometimes it is a glimpse of a small light, sometimes a big one. But there is something out there that can keep you going.”

Mercury Testing and Detoxification 

http://learntruehealth.com/mercury/

Countless research has proven the dangers of mercury. In my past episodes, I have tackled topics about how mercury and heavy metals can hamper our health goals. But today, I’m thrilled to have Dr. Christopher Shade on the show to explain the details of mercury testing aside from heavy metals detoxification. 

Organic Farming 

Dr. Christopher Shade describes himself as a reductionist from an academic family. He recalls his college years full of mind-liberating experiences. During this time, he started to believe in the holism of the world and the inner relationships in nature. 

It was not long after college when Dr. Christopher Shade became an organic farmer. He did a couple of other things before going into academic studies about organic farming. 

Dr. Christopher Shade started studying environmental chemistry around agriculture and eventually earned a Masters’ Degree. He then pursued a Ph.D. degree in Illinois and looked into agricultural pollution and environmental chemistry. But he found it boring. 

“Then I found this guy who was doing these global models of mercury cycling. So I went into that and developed this testing for different forms of mercury during graduate school where we could separate different forms,” said Dr. Christopher Shade. 

He adds, “I got a patent on that and started my company in Boulder County, Colorado. My company did environmental testing, got into health and wellness, and applied the testing to metals and toxins.” 

Dr. Christopher Shade decided to focus on health and wellness after the crash of 2008. Fortunately, his jump in health and wellness was well-received. 

Testing For Toxins 

Dr. Christopher Shade brought this new method of testing where they could look at different forms of mercury in the body and how they are excreted. The test can also show how the functional excretion and detoxifications were working, as well as what forms of mercury are present including its sources. 

“I explored what was the standard of treatment then. Long-term chronic toxicity involves failure of the detoxification and wearing down of the system,” Dr. Christopher Shade explains. “It’s more important to restore the functioning of antioxidants, enzymes, and transporters that are associated with ridding the body of toxins.” 

He adds, “As you bring them up, not only do you get rid of the toxins out of your body. You also make your body more resistant to the presence of those toxins and any future exposure to toxins. That’s what put me where I am today to help people get well.”  

Role Of Glutathione 

Dr. Christopher Shade acknowledges the importance of glutathione. Glutathione is not only an essential antioxidant in animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria. It can also prevent damage to cellular components caused by things like free radicals and heavy metals. 

“If mercury is in your cell and it’s stuck in one of your proteins, you need to get it out by first linking it on to glutathione. But if you have glutathione there, it doesn’t mean that the mercury is going to jump off the protein onto the glutathione,” explains Dr. Christopher Shade. 

Dr. Christopher Shade says we need this intermediary called the glutathione s-transferase. It pries the mercury off the protein so they can bind onto glutathione. 

Importance of Sweating 

We know that sweating is beneficial for getting toxins out of our body. But Dr. Christopher Shade says sweating isn’t well understood. 

Dr. Christopher Shade readily admits he used to improperly say that sweating is really about plastics, solvents and not about metals. Then he read some data wherein it states that the metal content of sweat is relatively similar to urine. That’s why they call it the 3rd kidney. 

According to Dr. Christopher Shade, there has to be a similar thing wherein the transporters are pulling from the blood and dumping into the sweat. But that has not been elucidated yet. 

“If I give you something that stimulates your cells to dump out of the cells into the blood, the kidney and liver better be ready for that. But a lot of reasons why people get toxic is because of blocks in the liver and kidney,” said Dr. Christopher Shade. “If you are dumping out of the cells, your blood levels get high. And then you have what’s called redistribution.” 

Understanding Toxins 

Dr. Christopher Shade explains that first of all, toxins are dumped into the bile. When that doorway between the liver and the gallbladder or the bile drainage gets blocked, that’s when people have the biggest problem detoxing. 

“People who have a problem when they detox often find that the gallbladder is the biggest problem. You need to be able to move the bile,” Dr. Christopher Shade said. “Sweating is a safe way to go. But the problem is getting sicker. Because when you detox or lose weight, it affects the liver and gallbladder movement.” 

When the gallbladder is blocked, the toxins are dumped back into the blood, hence the redistribution. And when this happens, we usually experience itching, rashes, lower back pain, and more brain fog.  

Herbal Remedies 

Dr. Christopher Shade says that for improving liver function, he uses a lot of bitter herbs to start moving up the liver. Apparently, toxins affect the glutamate receptors in the brain which drives us into a sympathetic tone. 

“Mercury causes anxiety. Anxiety is locking you over into a sympathetic tone,” explains Dr. Christopher Shade. “By nature, it starts locking up your gallbladder. Most toxins do this. Leaky gut does this. It creates a narrow inflammatory pathway in your brain because of endotoxin that comes from the leaky gut.” 

That’s why Dr. Christopher Shade found great use for CBD or cannabidiol into these detox regimens and any treatment for Lyme or chronic disease. This is because all those problems force this sympathetic overdrive called neuroinflammation. And CBD stabilizes that immediately. 

“That will stabilize the autonomic nervous system. Then you can go in with the herbs that open up the bile flow, and you can get back on top of things,” assures Dr. Christopher Shade. 

Types Of Mercury 

There are three types of mercury.  And according to Dr. Christopher Shade, all three types are excreted very differently. 

Dental mercury or dental amalgam is mercury in liquid form.  It is mixed with metal alloy and used to fill dental cavities. This kind of mercury evaporates. We end up inhaling it, and the mercury goes into our blood through our lungs. Common health problems include joint pains, skin problems, and kidney problems. 

Methylmercury is a type of mercury coming from fish. When you eat it, we absorb it through amino acid transporters. According to Dr. Christopher Shade, this mercury gets into our brain, and there are immediate neurological consequences. Health issues include experiencing anxiety and brain fog. 

On the other hand, ethylmercury is found in vaccines. Dr. Christopher Shade says it is most similar to methylmercury and causes acute disruption of the immune system. 

Mercury Testing 

Dr. Christopher Shade’s test method can measure little amounts of mercury in the blood. And according to him, it should be perfectly correlated with what’s coming out in the urine. 

“The kidneys should be working correctly in their metal filtration processes. If the ratio between blood, organic and the urinary mercury levels are off, I know there’s damage to the detoxification chemistry of the kidney,” said Dr. Christopher Shade. 

Dr. Christopher Shade also says that this test has functional components as well as a load component. It can measure load in the blood and the blood that is proportional to what’s in the rest of the body. 

Quicksilver Products 

Dr. Christopher Shade offers a lot of great products to promote overall health.  He mentions that Bitter X and Pure PC in particular, has proven to have significant positive health effects. 

Bitter X is for opening up bile flow and is a fantastic supplement for digestive function. Pure PC or Phosphatidyl Choline is an essential component of the cellular membranes of plant and animal cells, needed for membrane integrity, structure, and function. 

Dr. Christopher Shade also advises using a toxin binder in the GI tract. This is because a bunch of toxins can go down the GI tract and may be reabsorbed.

Importance of Eating Healthy

Dr. Christopher Shade like many other experts I had on the show, stressed the importance of eating right and embracing a healthy lifestyle for effective detoxification.

Otherwise, our body will remain inflamed, and all inflammation blocks detoxification. 

“You have to do at least the basic evaluation of your diet to assess if you have some food allergies. Get your mind in a state of being good,” advises Dr. Christopher Shade. “Support the drainage. It’s more important to take things out that are distorting your health than to try to stuff more things in to give you more energy.”  

Bio

Dr. Christopher Shade, Ph.D., founder, and CEO of Quicksilver Scientific, continues to be the driving force of development and innovation. His vast depth and breadth of knowledge, passion for healing, and intuitive understanding of chemistry and biology are reflected in Quicksilver Scientific’s well-designed detoxification protocols, unique supplement delivery systems, and patented mercury speciation test. 

Dr. Christopher Shade is in high demand as a lecturer and is beloved for his amiability and quick (silver) wit. It is because of his many innovations and charismatic personality that Quicksilver Scientific is well recognized globally. 

Dr. Christopher Shade is a recognized expert on mercury and liposomal delivery systems. He has lectured and trained doctors in the U.S. and internationally on the subject of mercury, heavy metals, and the human detoxification system. He developed the patented liquid chromatographic mercury speciation technology used at Quicksilver Scientific while conducting his Ph.D. dissertation work with advisor Robert Hudson at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This technology was used to create the Mercury Tri-Test. 

Dr. Christopher Shade’s current focus is on the development of cutting-edge, lipid-based delivery systems for nutraceuticals, such as liposomes and microemulsion systems, to address the growing need for high quality, affordable detoxification solutions.

AutoImmunity

http://learntruehealth.com/autoimmunity

Many people suffer from autoimmunity. But because sometimes the symptoms can be confusing, people fail to seek immediate treatment for autoimmunity. My guest today, Dr. Jared Seigler has an amazing story on how his journey led him to help people address autoimmunity conditions.

Stumbled By Accident

Dr. Jared Seigler relates that he stumbled into functional medicine by accident. It started when his wife was struggling to conceive for years because she was suffering from PCOS. After almost five years of searching for answers, they were even contemplating on adopting a child.

But Dr. Jared Seigler refused to give up mainly since his wife was just 23 years old at the time. He was even subjected to a stool test wherein they found parasites so Dr. Jared Seigler also underwent treatment.

After years of searching for answers and countless treatments, the couple was finally blessed with a daughter who is now five years old.

Helminth Parasites

Helminths are parasitic worms, and parasites are known manipulators of the immune system. The first time Dr. Jared Seigler got exposed to it was six years ago when one of his lupus patients called him. That patient claimed to feel better because of her dog’s licks. She was not taking any drugs nor any supplements. 

“What good parasites can do, is act like a probiotic for the parasite. As they manipulate the immune system to hide from it, so the immune system doesn’t attack it, they also suppress the immune system that is causing autoimmunity,” Dr. Jared Seigler said. 

He adds, “I’m not anti-parasite. When I look autoimmunity and probiotics research, it’s a hit or miss. There is even research showing that for example, Crohn’s is due to the immune system in some cases, losing tolerance to normal bacteria.”

But Dr. Jared Seigler clarifies that when we see someone being given a beneficial parasite consistently, that can take away a lot of autoimmune symptoms. He says dead bacteria behaves utterly different than a live bacteria. Some of the most potent stimulators of inflammation in the gut are dead bacteria that they use in the modern dairy industry. 

The Truth About Milk

Dr. Jared Seigler believes the gut has to quit getting colostrum from mother’s milk. Hence, a mom has to stop breastfeeding for the gut to grow.

“The premise that we need milk for health has been purely built on BS. The research goes the other way,” explains Dr. Jared Seigler. “Technically, when you look at it on a big enough scale, 100% of the world is lactose-intolerant. It takes five gallons of milk a day or a sip to be able to reset intolerance of sugars in the milk.”

Understanding Autoimmunity

Dr. Jared Seigler readily shares that he has autoimmunity as well as his wife. So, he clearly knows he can’t go back to eating the way he used to eat. Dr. Jared Seigler is also aware that he is not perfect just because he has changed his lifestyle to a healthier one. But he loves being a work in progress. That is why his passion lies in also helping people get their bodies to a place where they can heal.

“With the whole premises of autoimmunity, there’s the genetic susceptibility component. I truly don’t believe the immune system makes a mistake with autoimmunity,” said Dr. Jared Seigler. “I believe the immune system is being tricked and overwhelmed in that scenario.” 

He adds, “Once the immune system recognizes it as a problem, we have to think about what is driving certain things for autoimmunity like molecular mimicry. For molecular mimicry, the immune system initially recognizes something bad like identifying characteristics. Once it progresses, it can start epitope spreading.”

Human Microbiome Project

The Human Microbiome Project tries to figure out all the bacteria in our gut, and skin, as well as figuring out what all these bacteria do and how they influence our genes. Dr. Jared Seigler says bacteria pitifully outnumber us.

“One of the things that the Microbiome Project started to make clearer is that it is really about the diversity of bacteria more than anything,” said Dr. Jared Seigler.

Apparently, there about ten times more viruses inside the gut than there are bacteria. So, there’s a whole concept called the microbiome. Plus, there’s a microbiome where we can vividly see worms.

“Someone’s microbiome is like a thumbprint. I think a lot of these companies are data-mining people’s microbiomes,” Dr. Jared Seigler said. “They are giving away these costly tests for relatively nothing. For the 23andMe, they were selling people’s genetic data to pharma companies.”

Cold Showers

Dr. Jared Seigler reveals that he is also a big fan of cold showers. What it does as far as glutathione production, neurotransmitter production, and microbiome change, it that we weren’t designed to be 72 degrees year-round. Just like we weren’t intended to eat the same food.

He says taking cold showers changes how mitochondria functions. It also changes antioxidants, changes how our body utilizes and breaks down a lot of things as well as making people warm. 

Eating Real Food

Dr. Jared Seigler says as far as figuring out the cause of autoimmunity; he never blames food as long as it is real food. He believes that in the long run, probably one of the worse things someone can do is restrict a lot of their food diversity.

Dr. Jared Seigler also believes that doing a three-day fast can be beneficial.  And as far as recommending the best prebiotics, he advises thinking of prebiotics as fiber. Think of fiber like fruits and vegetables. Eat different fruits and vegetables if you want different prebiotics.

On the other hand, I have had Chinese medicine practitioner Sarica Cernohous on the show who attested to the benefits of eating fermented foods. Shifting her family to eat at least one fermented food a day eventually strengthened their gut.

“I would rather somebody eat fermented foods than try to take it in a capsule. Because traditionally, that’s how we would get probiotics from the fermentation process,” said Dr. Jared Seigler. “It might not necessarily beat all the bacteria that’s in there, but as the bacteria is eating that food, their poop is what we’re after. They change genetic expression.”

Gluten Sensitivity

According to Dr. Jared Seigler, gluten sensitivity is the genetic predisposition. That is why we see such a huge correlation between autoimmunity and gluten sensitivity.

Dr. Jared Seigler also mentions that he took Dr. Tom O’ Bryan and Dr. Peter Osbone’s gluten certification course. He took the classes after deciding to go gluten-free when his wife was diagnosed with celiac.

“My energy and depression got better, and my anxiety and brain fog disappeared. I see people on so many different spectrums. Some people don’t even know what gluten is,” said Dr. Jared Seigler.

Dr. Jared Seigler says there are even case studies of ALS being gluten sensitive with a 100% resolution upon going on a gluten-free diet. So, it eliminates the inflammation. We dramatically see that when we start to remove problematic foods.

Functional Neurology

Dr. Jared Seigler explains that from 0 to 6 years old, brain waves of a child is similar to how we dream or store long-term memories. It is similar to dreaming while they are awake.

As soon as it happens inside of a child’s brain, their subconscious now operates on an entirely different level. And this is where you can measure some things like heart rate variability.

“I love doing a thing called Functional Neurology. Most people know about functional medicine, but functional neurology is like a personal trainer for your brain. You can exercise different parts of the brain to increase its function,” said Dr. Jared Seigler.

The Power Of Thoughts

Dr. Jared Seigler explains that we always think food may be poisoning our autoimmune disease. So, if you’re only eating 4 to 5 times a day, you have the potential to poison yourself 4 to 5 times a day.

But we have anywhere around 30,000 thoughts a day and only 1% may be bad. That’s still hundreds of times a day we poison ourselves with a thought. Technically, a toxin can be a thought or a relationship.

“So, if we know that these bad thoughts have negative effects, you can feel your blood pressure rising,” Dr. Jared Seigler explains. “That’s your stress response shifting into high gear. You change your physiology with thoughts. Generosity and gratitude are the two strongest positive emotions.”

A positive mindset is powerful. Dr. Jared Seigler usually advises people suffering from addiction to write on a journal and focus on what they are grateful for.

“You can get over addiction by diluting it until it is socially acceptable. With an addiction to food, in particular, we can tell when somebody is ready to make a change to the question they are asking. Ultimately, the brain wants to feel normal,” said Dr. Jared Seigler. “The body has never made a mistake. It is just doing what it can in the environment that it’s in. 

Bio

Dr. Jared Seigler, Doctor of Chiropractic and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, practices in West Chester, Ohio. His passion is to help his patients regain their health through Functional and Lifestyle Medicine. This personal quest was sparked by watching the health of his loved ones degrade over time while conventional medicine provided no real answers. 

Initially starting as a personal trainer, Dr. Jared Seigler had an insatiable appetite for knowledge on how to better the health of his clients. This hunger for knowledge is his guiding light and has grown into what we offer at the Living Proof Institute. 

By helping patients identify the cause of their disease and giving them the tools to regain their health, Dr. Jared Seigler cannot only compliment his patient’s current healthcare but fill the gaps left by conventional medicine. 

In his spare time, Dr. Jared Seigler likes to enjoy the outdoors and spend time with his wife and family.

Impact Of Eating Right

http://learntruehealth.com/impact-eating-right/

Most of us shrug off the importance and impact of eating right. With my returning guest today, we covered things like binge eating and strategies on how to eat as well as develop willpower. Today, Dr. Glenn Livingston is back on the show to talk about our relationship with food as well as the impact of eating right towards achieving a good mental and emotional health.

Helping People

Dr. Glenn Livingston, not a medical doctor, but rather a psychologist. So, he’s genuinely a good resource person who could expound on how the impact of eating right can benefit us in so many ways.

Dr. Glenn Livingston helps people on all sorts of diets. I suggest that everyone must sign up for his newsletter as well as download his free Never Binge Again book from his website.

He is a raw vegan. And when Dr. Glenn Livingston works with people, he does it the context of a coach. Rarely does he talk about his diet. He says this is because people are most likely going to become resistant if they think they had to be a raw vegan like Dr. Glenn Livingston.

Raw Vegan Diet

Dr. Glenn Livingston eats almost entirely fruits and vegetables. He gets enough protein and calcium which he says made him feel stronger, sleep better, normalize his blood pressure, as well as made his psoriasis and eczema disappear.

“I have no problem staying relatively thin, and I have no tremendous carb or salt cravings. It’s something I have evolved into over the course of so many years,” shares Dr. Glenn Livingston. 

He adds, “Every time I got rid of some industrially processed food, I ask myself what authentic physiological, biological need I have for these foods. And I start to train myself to crave for healthier things.” 

Foods To Avoid

Dr. Glenn Livingston believes that food has been demonized, along with all of the processed carbohydrates. Knowing the impact of eating right is essential now more than ever. We must fix our relationship with food before it’s too late.

“I’m very much not in favor of people indulging in a lot of starch and sugar. It’s a big part of the downfall of our health and society,” Dr. Glenn Livingston said. “The American Diabetic Association does not encourage you to limit fruit or whole food. There’s a lot of fear and demonization of fruit in particular.”

Dr. Glenn Livingston also reveals that there’s another culprit people are not paying attention to. He says fat acts as an insulator. Studies show that unfortunately, 30 to 40% of the American diet contains fat.

“If you drop it down to the 10% range, the uptake transport and absorption of sugar and oxygen are dramatically better. You’ll notice this in your ability to breathe better, and your performance at the gym improves dramatically,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “Cardiovascular performance will also improve. It’s incredible we’re not aware we are creating problems by putting so much fat in our system.”

Mother’s Experience

When Dr. Glenn Livingston was 15 years old, his mother had some few cancerous tumors in her uterus. She saw an alternative healer who suggested going on a vegan diet instead of having a hysterectomy.

Dr. Glenn Livingston’s mother was not even 40 years old when she was diagnosed, so she also hesitated to have the surgery done. Deciding to go on a vegan diet for six months, her tumors reversed, and she eventually didn’t have to have a hysterectomy. From that point on, Dr. Glenn Livingston was determined to become a vegan, too.

Dr. Glenn Livingston’s mother eventually went off on the vegan diet and lived for another 35 years later or so before she passed away. But Dr. Glenn Livingston was already convinced that there was something special about the vegan diet, although he strayed from the vegan diet during his college years. 

Finding The Right Diet

Dr. Glenn Livingston recalls coming across a book in graduate school about cancer. It reminded him of the vegan connection that’s why he decided to go back to a vegan diet. But he still didn’t understand everything back then.

Labeling himself a junk food vegan then, Dr. Glenn Livingston thought eating pasta, candy, and fried foods were okay as long as it wasn’t animal products. Not surprisingly, he didn’t get very healthy on that diet.

Dr. Glenn Livingston married a year after that, although he’s divorced now. He shares that he was married to a woman who was brought up in a deli and the Atkins diet was gaining popularity that time.

But his ex-spouse apparently had a friend who was studying nutrition and advocated a low carb diet. Unfortunately, Dr. Glenn Livingston, couldn’t stick to the diet. He couldn’t seem to achieve the impact of eating right, so he wasn’t really in tip-top shape during his 30s and 40s.

Constant Research

Dr. Glenn Livingston kept reading books in the hope that he could find the right kind of diet for him. He came across The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. The book explained the author’s research in China, where they looked at the correlation between the different health conditions and diet. 

“Cancer was very much associated with the level of animal protein that people had. If people can keep their level of animal protein under 5%, they would have virtually no cancer whatsoever,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.

Dr. Glenn Livingston also started to look for some books about vegan nutrition. He came across Eat To Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, who was advocating against animal protein. Incidentally, Dr. Joel Fuhrman was a former guest in one of my episodes.

I was hooked on meat before and took me a while to come around. Dr. Joel Fuhrman was very thorough in explaining everything about animal protein. I love his very science-based approach towards making a diet.

Dr. Glenn Livingston also cited the book Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession with Meat Is Killing Us, by Dr. Garth Davis and Howard Jacobson. The book is about the science of protein addiction and why we don’t need it.

“Our muscles are supposed to produce these energy-giving substances, but when you eat animal protein, the body stops producing those substances,” Dr. Glenn Livingston explains. “When you stop eating meat, people feel exhausted. They don’t feel well because it takes a while for their muscles to upregulate and start producing it again.” 

He adds, “That’s why people think they need it. Same for sugar. But food cravings will go away quicker than you think, usually within four days.” 

Seeing A Change

Dr. Glenn Livingston says that although he got healthy following a low protein diet, he still had little psoriasis. Plus, he still had weight issues. But now that on a raw vegan diet, Dr. Glenn Livingston’s health significantly improved. He finally felt he was on the right track after seeing the impact of eating right.

According to Dr. Glenn Livingston, Victoria Boutenko’s book (Green Smoothie Revolution) on raw foods is a good resource for making green smoothies. He drinks green smoothies especially during the days when he craves for chocolate.

Dr. Glenn Livingston persevered and kept trying different green smoothie recipes. It’s not the same high compared to eating chocolate, but the craving would go away. After a few months, he noticed his craving started to shift to green smoothies!

“I always believe these cravings that we think we can’t live without, there’s an authentic biological reason behind it,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.

Fruits And Vegetables

To better understand the benefits of incorporating fruits and vegetables into your diet, Dr. Glenn Livingston recommends Dr. Doug Graham’s 80/10/10 diet. In formulating the 80/10/10 diet, Dr. Doug Graham says we’re meant to live on fruits and vegetables, as well as a handful of nuts and seeds.

Part of the belief system is also saying we are not supposed to cook food. Because apparently, cooking creates all sorts of toxins.  It is energy-draining and has life-killing substances, so Dr. Glenn Livingston felt better eating raw.

“I hired a coach, got to meet Dr. Doug Graham and attended workshops. I now speak for low-fat, raw veganism. It’s difficult to get used to. You have to eat more volume than you’re used to, and you have to commit,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.

Dr. Glenn Livingston’s diet primarily consists of smoothies, lettuce, bananas, mangoes, strawberries, and sometimes dates. He also likes to make cucumber noodles topped with a sauce made of tomatoes, lemon juice, and dates which were Dr. Glenn Livingston’s significant weight loss trick.

Effect On Emotional And Mental Health

Dr. Glenn Livingston says when you put things into your body that your body has to recover from, it affects the physiological energy of the nervous system. Our body goes into digesting it, eliminating and isolating the toxins to deal with the enormous task that you give it.

“And when all the energy is put into that, it doesn’t have the energy to conduct the emotions. So, you’re not present in the way you could be. You’re also not able to feel the emotions the way you could be,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “And you’re not able to feel. This is why people say they need food for comfort. Because it does act as a kind of anesthetic to numb the feeling we have.” 

He adds, “But I also think that there is a pleasure response, like the feeling we get with drugs. Because we’re being provided with substances that concentrates pleasurable substances.”

Dr. Glenn Livingston furthermore explains that we wind up with a whole cascade of events in the nervous system that distorts and perverts its pleasurable response to natural stimuli. When you eliminate that, then people can feel, be present and ultimately, they can think.

Maintaining The Willpower

Dr. Glenn Livingston believes that what we are built for with our psychology, is to operate according to character. He says that when you make character statements and adopt them into what person you want to be, and how you want food to play in your life, then the obsession is less. 

“There’s always the possibility of reawakening that old pathway. Our bodies are normally flexible. There’s a principle in research called neuroplasticity. Every time you have a craving, you are rewiring your brain to say, this craving equals to this food instead,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.

In line with that train of thought, I had Dr. Alan Goldhammer on the show, who talked about the benefits of eliminating salt, oil, and sugar, as well as tips on how to deal with cravings. Another informative episode was with Dr. Esselstyn, a cardiac surgeon who reverses heart disease with diet. He spoke in detail ways on how to train the brain to eat natural things.

“You don’t have to eat super healthy. Start with one change that has a noticeable impact on health,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “And more importantly, an impact and ability to make a commitment and stick to it. Because you can build on that.”

Bio

Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long-time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. 

His previous work, theories, and research have been published in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, and American Demographics.  He has also guested on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV. 

Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Glenn Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.

30. 248 Ph.D. MD Neurogastroenterologist Discovers Man Made Gut Issue Affecting Millions, SIFO, SIBO, Acid Reflux, Disbyosis, Fungus, Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth with Dr. Satish Rao and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

SIBO And SIFO

http://learntruehealth.com/sibo-and-sifo/

SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) and SIFO (Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth) are two health conditions plaguing many people today. SIBO stands for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and SIFO stands for small intestinal fungal overgrowth. Respected expert Dr. Satish Rao is here with us today to explain what SIBO and SIFO are all about and how to treat it.

This episode was hard for me to do since Dr. Satish Rao is an allopathic doctor. His way of treating SIBO and SIFO is different from experts in Natural Medicine, but his research about SIBO and SIFO is worth talking about.

I have been recently tackling topics about gut health and the best treatment for gut issues. So, I highly recommend everyone to listen to episodes 245 and 247.

Family of Physicians

Dr. Satish Rao came from a family of physicians. His father was a Professor of Medicine and a University Dean.

When he was young, Dr. Satish Rao recalls that his father used to carry around a Sheaffer pen with a white dot on it. He wanted the pen, but his father told him only doctors could have that pen. That apparently became Dr. Satish Rao’s motivation to become a doctor.

Dr. Satish Rao pursued medical studies in India and took post-graduate studies in England. He, later on, discovered that deficiency of selenium causes cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy.

Dr. Satish Rao also learned about gastroenterology and focused on research as well as an essential area of the gut called Neurogastroenterology and motility. That branch of medicine was still in its infancy in the early 80s. Dr. Satish Rao was mentored by two outstanding professors and has helped many patients.

“We have been able to understand some key disorders and dysfunctions in the gut and find a remedy to help them. That’s been my journey over the past 25 years,” said Dr. Satish Rao.

Understanding Nutrition

Medical doctors are not taught nutrition and how food plays a significant role in our gut health. We are just given drug after drug. Dr. Satish Rao, on the other hand, identified a new illness that is man-made because of drugs and over prescription. He’s a very conventional doctor but is treated as an outsider by the community.

Dr. Satish Rao says he would love to implement diet and a healthy lifestyle as a solution for health problems. Having practiced in three different continents—India, U.K. and the United States, Dr. Satish Rao feels it is tough to teach people proper nutrition, especially in the United States.

“One of the hardest things I found in America is to change people’s behavior, culture and eating habits. Every patient in India, asks me restrictions on their diet,” shares Dr. Satish Rao. “But in the United States, I never get that question. Even when I advise them, it is very hard for people to change.” 

He adds,”I do believe there are tremendous things one can do to change their lifestyle and behavior and that can do along with healing. But it has to be done in tandem with other things that we can do as physicians and the prescription drugs. It cannot be done without it.” 

Right Mindset

Dr. Satish Rao also makes it clear that in the long-term, it is not the drugs that are going to help and conquer the problem. He says it is probably their lifestyle issues that will give the long-term remedy.

Unfortunately, American and Canadian cultures are similar. Americans and Canadians are not raised to see that their lifestyle has an impact on their health. Countries like India, on the other hand, is more in touch with Holistic healing.

“In the U.K., the patient I had were very willing to institute changes and take on recommendations. In the United States, I don’t think people like to change. They may, under some duress but it’s not going to come soon,” predicted Dr. Satish Rao.

We have seen a difference in the last five years. I remember having a demographer on the show who said the millennials—aged 14 to 33, have now outnumbered the baby boomers and the generation in between. Millenials have a different mindset, and I hope they would change their mind before it’s too late.

Symptoms of SIBO and SIFO

Dr. Satish Rao says he tends to see a challenging group of SIBO and SIFO patients from all over the country and internationally as well. He says people suffering from SIBO and SIFO usually have significant unexplained symptoms of bloating, pain and gas.

“To characterize if there was indeed an infection in the gut, we look inside the stomach lining or small bowel lining and see if there is anything unusual. Then we’ll take biopsies. Or if there is celiac disease, we will take biopsies, too,” said Dr. Satish Rao.

According to Dr. Satish Rao, there’s also a test wherein it takes 24 hours to study a patient’s gut motility. This is to see if the muscles and nerves are working or not. Another option is taking juice from the small bowel to study if there is an infection in the patient’s small bowel. Dr. Satish Rao then sends the specimen to the microbiology lab to see if it would grow any bacteria or fungal organisms.

Test Findings

Dr. Satish Rao reveals that he has encountered different findings over the years. In the mid-90s, doctors will treat patients with antibiotics if there is a bacterial infection. Treatment for fungus it is administered in another way.

Then fast forward 2005 or 2006, Dr. Satish Rao thought of doing further research on SIBO and SIFO. The results became quite controversial.

When Dr. Satish Rao and his team looked at the data carefully, they found that a quarter of the patients had exclusive fungal overgrowth. A quarter had a mix of bacteria and fungus. Another group had pure bacteria, and 30 to 40% of patients were clean.

“Then I tried to publish that work. But lo and behold, if you’re ahead of the curve in the medical literature, you get frown upon. No one would accept it. They wanted to publish my work on SIBO thought my research about fungus was rubbish,” said Dr. Satish Rao.

In around 2010, Dr. Satish Rao finally found a very reputable journal that was willing to publish his findings. For the first time, the SIBO and SIFO were published as a major G.I. article. Now, there was more recognition that this is a valid entity. 

When Should We Be Alarmed?

Dr. Satish Rao says that a significant growth pertains to a thousand colony-forming fungi per milliliter of fluid or more. Some of them grow a million or more. Aside from that, Dr. Satish Rao says we should also remember the area from where it is growing.

“The stomach is full of hydrochloric acid. It has a strong way of attacking and killing bacteria, fungus, and everything,” explains Dr. Satish Rao. “The duodenum is the tube that comes out of the stomach, and we are sampling within the first 6-9 in of the stomach.” 

He adds, “It is an area continuously bathed in stomach acid, and it has a very high exposure to the acidic environment. So, in that area, there should be no bacteria or fungus. If there is, then there is a problem.”

Unfortunately, Dr. Satish Rao says, looking at symptoms profiles, we are not able to distinguish who has this condition or not. Those who have and don’t have an overgrowth have very similar symptom profiles. And he says that the only way to separate it is by doing the culture.

Understanding Fungus Infection

Dr. Satish Rao says that fungus infection can be anywhere in the body. Typically, he says people who have an underlying depressed immune system, like with cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, HIV infection, are strong candidates.

“These are a prime group of individuals who don’t have the right immunity to ward off infection from fungus. And fungus is naturally present on our skin, in our mouth and areas exposed to the environment. It is normal for them to be there,” Dr. Satish Rao said. 

He adds, “But when something happens inside the body like an infection, diabetes, overuse of steroids or antibiotics, it is a risk for fungus infection. But two factors stood out about our patients. One was the use of proton pump inhibitor and the presence of small intestinal dysmotility. They increase the risk to develop SIFO.”

Impact of Drugs

It is not surprising that the overuse of drugs has an impact on the gut. According to Dr. Satish Rao, the gut has a very interesting program of small intestinal dysmotility, typically the upper gut.

Dr. Satish Rao explains that every 90 minutes or so, as long as you remain fasting, there is a beautiful, strong, sweeping process that goes through the gut and sweeps its way through the colon. It happens every 60 to 90 minutes.

If this pattern doesn’t happen, they say you have a problem in your small bowel. This means you no longer have the capability to clean its contents.

“The problem of SIBO and SIFO is unfortunately man-made. I have been practicing G.I. for 25 to 30 years, and I don’t believe I’ve seen that many patients with these kinds of symptoms for a long time,” said Dr. Satish Rao. “It’s no question that we recognize it, and we are diagnosing it. But we were never using these powerful drugs for this length of time.”

Recommended Treatment

Dr. Satish Rao usually tries to eradicate the problem through a 3-week course of antifungal therapy with fluconazole. Fluconazole gets absorbed into the bloodstream and acts on the problem. Dr. Satish Rao explains that he has to maintain people on antibiotics because of the underlying gut motility problem. Plus, patients need long-term treatment.

“The other component of treatment gets rid of any potential and incriminating factors. If they have a motility problem, I can try and place them on drugs that stimulate motility. Unfortunately, we don’t have many good drugs, so I try to give those drugs in small amounts,” said Dr. Satish Rao.

As for administering intravenous magnesium, Dr. Satish Rao has not used it to treat patients. He says magnesium tends to have a calming effect rather than a stimulating effect on gut motility. So that is why it is not Dr. Satish Rao’s drug of choice for his patients.

Role Of Food

Dr. Satish Rao recommends more acidic-containing food because the fungus hates an acidic environment. This way, we can kill off the fungal bacteria through acidic foods.

“But more acidic food can also trigger reflux symptoms. There should be a fine balance between acidic and alkaline foods. Look also at your tolerance for different food products. I usually have my patients do a three-day food chart then come up with a formula diet,” clarifies Dr. Satish Rao. 

Other Concerns

Dr. Satish Rao also reveals that people who had surgery in the gut, particularly colon surgery, is the classic set up for SIBO. People who had this surgery have disrupted the normal barriers between the small and large bowel. But despite that, Dr. Satish Rao was quick to explain that he’s not disputing the reason for the surgery. He’s just saying that unfortunately, that group of individuals are highly susceptible and prone to SIBO and SIFO.

“Most patients go on lifelong antibiotics because we have no other way of preventing it. But I don’t treat them with large doses. I recommend maintenance doses and the easiest regime usually a week to ten days or after a month. There are only a few who need continuously,” said Dr. Satish Rao.

Bio

Dr. Satish Rao received his MD from Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, India, his Ph.D. from the University of Sheffield, U.K., and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP) in London, UK, in 1997.

31. 247 Resolving Gut Issues, Depression, Fatigue, and Anxiety with Functional Medicine, IBS, Obesity, Chronic Fatigue, Parasites, Candida, SIBO, Evan Brand and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Gut Issues 

http://learntruehealth.com/gut-issues/

A lot of people suffer from gut issues. But most of them mistake the symptoms of gut issues for some other disease, so they end up not addressing the cause.  Evan Brand is a fellow podcaster who has gone down that road, so I’m excited that he’s sharing his insights on how to solve gut issues. 

Growing Up Years

Evan Brand is a survivor of several health conditions. Growing up, he had to deal with things like parasite infections, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), H pylori, candida overgrowth, adrenal fatigue and many other health conditions.

He also battled with depression, anxiety, fatigue and IBS for so many years. Initially, he consulted with conventional doctors, but nobody gave him a long-term solution.  This led him to research and go the alternative medicine route.

Dangers of EMF

During Evan Brand’s research, he found that electromagnetic fields or EMF are a factor in causing leaky gut. He believes that if EMF can affect hormones, it can also affect the gut area.

Evan Brand shares that in one of his past episodes, he had GE’s former senior scientist Dr. Richard Hansler on the show. Dr. Richard Hansler thoroughly explained that the modern light bulb is harmful because it negatively affects our melatonin production. Hence, we end up having a hard time to sleep.

Because of that, Dr. Richard Hansler founded Lighting Lighting Innovations Institute. He also co-founded Low Blue Lights, which sells advanced lighting products. 

Dangers Of 5G

Evan Brand also shares that another past guest, Dr. Jack Kruse was instrumental in influencing him to move out of the city to try to get away from cellphone towers. Dr. Jack Kruse is a known neurosurgeon in the industry.

“They say 5G is a nightmare. Just because of the small cells. The 5G is the new generation of cell phone technology so that we can transmit and have a million people download YouTube videos all in a second from their smartphones,” Evan Brand explains. 

He adds, “There’s going to be these small cells the size of a watermelon. A giant router that transmits cellular data but they’re going to be on every three to four houses. So your risk of wireless pollution is going to go up so much.”

Optimized Life

Dr. Jack Kruse is also the CEO of Optimized Life. Optimized Life is a health and wellness company aiming to help people avoid the healthcare burdens we usually encounter as we grow older.  Dr. Jack Kruse currently in practices in the Gulf South.

“We just saw the first study tested on rats last March 22, that proved cellphone tower radiation can cause cancer,” said Evan Brand. “The Ramazzini Institute Study: Animal Study On Base Station/Cell Tower Radiofrequency Radiation. Dr. Kruse told me this six years ago, and now it is finally coming out that it is true.”

I also heard of so many studies coming out detailing the dangers of 5G. The findings state that 5G causes dangerous health conditions like migraines and brain tumors.

“The rollout of these technologies is going to happen at a much slower rate if you are in a rural area. Because the population is low and there is less need for a million 5G towers out here,” Evan Brand explained. “EMF is the new smoking. You can’t see it or smoke it, but it’s there.”

Evan Brand says plans are already in place to erect those towers in Austin, Texas, Seattle, Washington, Miami, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles either this year or next year. Unfortunately, we can’t stop those plans so Evan Brand advises the need to be aware of protecting our health in the best way we can.

Dealing With Candida

Candida is a pathogenic yeast that can cause gut issues and symptoms like joint pains, fatigue, and gas. Evan Brand was able to talk with Nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, whose interview about candida will be featured at the upcoming Candida Summit this July. 

“I had many different species of bacterial infection and dealt with candida overgrowth. My gut was a mess,” said Evan Brand. “I also had bad acne. It wasn’t a deficiency of pharmaceuticals. Plus, they are giving away antibiotics now like candy for acne. To think antibiotics cause DNA damage and other issues.”

Parasite Issues

Evan Brand recalls that when he was in college, he always needed to check where the nearest bathroom was. After several consultations with the doctor, he found out that he was dealing with a couple of parasites—giardia and cryptosporidium.

Giardia is a parasite that is commonly known to cause diarrhea called giardiasis. It is regarded as a water-borne parasite. Cryptosporidium is also a water-borne parasite that causes cryptosporidiosis. It affects the small intestine and can affect the respiratory tract.

“Even if you do get a referral to a gastroenterologist, they are using a type of testing that is 20 years old. You’re going to get a false negative; then doctors send you to a psychiatrist. But through functional testing, you can find it,” said Evan Brand.

Evan Brand did functional testing, and it showed all the gut bugs. So with some help from his friends and colleagues, he created an herbal protocol. Six weeks later, Evan Brand was no longer rapidly losing weight, and his depression and anxiety disappeared.

A lot of people either shrug off depression and anxiety, or they fail to recognize it. You’d be surprised how it is linked to a lot of other health conditions.  Like my past guestJohann Hari explained, depression and anxiety can be very destabilizing.

Link Between Diet And Gut

Evan Brand shares that he had his first panic attack when he had gut bugs. Initially, he thought he had a heart attack. Apparently, the bugs were releasing several endotoxins into the bloodstream, so Evan Brand had to work on his liver through a nutrient-dense diet.

But Evan Brand was quick to clarify that just because you’ve fixed your diet, doesn’t mean the parasites will disappear. He advises that it is still best to get tested to get an accurate assessment of your health condition.

“Gut issues are the biggest puzzle piece. Nutrition is a big piece, but I did all the diets. I pulled out gluten, dairy, grain. But you’re not going to eradicate gut bugs just by going on a gluten-free diet,” said Evan Brand.

He adds, “Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt said, if you don’t address the gut issues or these infections, viruses, parasites or EMF, dieting alone can’t solve the problem.” 

Aura Roots

Aura Roots uses organic herbs for their products. Evan Brand says that they have a modest line of herbal antibiotics and herbal anti-parasitic, but they can also do custom formulations. Evan Brand says one of the products that he uses a lot is called Microbiome Support 1, 2 and 3.

I believe Evan Brand’s product line can give a lot of health benefits just like my past guest, Catharine Arnston who is the founder of ENERGYbits. I am satisfied with her chlorella product because just like Aura Roots, it is made organically grown and non-GMO.

SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)

Evan Brand cites a 2013 study where they found out the use of proton-pump inhibitors is a factor for bacterial and fungal overgrowth. It is also linked to gastrointestinal symptoms. Proton-pump inhibitors are drugs that supposedly reduce stomach acid production.

“CDC is now admitting that we have a massive antibiotic resistant problem. We also have an anti-fungal resistant problem. That is why Diflucan doesn’t work,” said Evan Brand. “CDC has a special program called emerging infections program. They can’t keep up because bacteria and fungi are changing and modifying.”

Evan Brand, therefore, advises people to increase their vitamin C dosage to be able to poop twice a day and make sure our lymphatic system is working fine. We have to shift our focus on adrenal, gallbladder and detox support.

Heavy Metals Toxicity

Evan Brand says he saw heavy metal symptoms when he was working on improving his gut health. Initially, he noticed things did get a little crazy like pent-up anxiety. But once the gut work was done, Evan Brand eventually found this new sense of calm.

I have heard the benefits of taking carbon supplements, but just like me, Evan Brand also goes to the sauna regularly to sweat out the heavy metal toxins from the body. The duration in the sauna is different for everyone, but according to my past guest Connie Zack, the owner of Sunlighten Sauna, it is best to listen to your body. As for Evan Brand, he usually stays in the sauna for 20 minutes at 125 degrees.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that we usually sweat out heavy metals during the first five minutes in the sauna.  But if you are like Evan Brand who doesn’t sweat out quickly, you may try exercising first or taking an Epson salt bath or elevating your legs while lying down.

You may also want to take an adrenal core test to figure out why it takes time for you to sweat. Evan Brand says he still has to figure out how he can sweat easily so basically, being in tip-top shape entails constant learning and research.

“Don’t give up. We got a lot that we’re up against. I understand how people want to shut down. Wherever you are at in your journey, there is something you can do,” said Evan Brand.

32. 246 Futuristic Laser Treatment Successfully Cures Patients, Bacteria, Fungus, Virus, Parasites, Heavy Metals, Detox, Pesticides, Plastics, Chemicals, Autoimmune, Cancer, Fibromyalgia, Lyme, Dr. Doug Phillips, Ashley James, Learn True Health Podcast

Laser Detox 

http://learntruehealth.com/laser-detox/

One of the latest methods of healing is through laser detox. It can be regarded as a futuristic form of laser treatment that can cure people suffering from bacteria, fungus, virus, parasites, heavy metals, detox, pesticides, plastics, chemicals, autoimmune, cancer, fibromyalgia and Lyme disease. Dr. Doug Phillips has administered laser detox to a lot of patients, and I’m thrilled to have him on this episode to talk about it.

Former Profession

Dr. Doug Phillips did not immediately start his career offering laser detox services to patients. In fact, he started out as a dentist. For almost four decades, Dr. Doug Phillips centered his focus on jaw dysfunction, facial pain and chronic illness which can lead to a lot of other health problems.

With his office initially based in Palm Beach, he researched to learn more about the immune and autonomic nervous system, as well as the importance of detoxing our body from toxins and pathogens, often found in our jaw.

“My step by step growth was inspired by the Lord. I kept learning and growing, and I am still learning now. We are never done,” said Dr. Doug Phillips.

American Academy of Craniofacial Pain

In the mid-80s, Dr. Doug Phillips was one of the 15 dentists who performed at the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain. Apparently, the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain is the most significant association of dentists and other experts whose focus is on craniofacial pain, temporomandibular disorders, and dental sleep medicine.

Dr. Doug Phillips recalled one patient, wherein initially, no one knew the real cause of that person’s face pain. Dr. Doug Phillips put something on both sides of the mouth, and the pain subsided!

“I found one spot and touched it with a drill. The pain was all gone. It made me see how important that was. From there, I learned more,” Dr. Doug Phillips said.

The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain was established in 1985 by a group of experts who wanted to promote clinical skills as well as educate people in this field. The organization holds a summer conference in the United States as well as winter conferences.

Learn About Heavy Metals Toxicity

Dr. Doug Phillips first heard about Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt in 1992.  Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was offering workshops at that time, and Dr. Doug Phillips signed up for one that focused on Neurotherapy. Because he liked the experience, Dr. Doug Phillips took the advanced course three months later and learned a lot about heavy metals toxicity.

I was very fortunate to have Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt on my show, and I highly recommend listening to that episode. To complement your heavy metals detox, it is also advisable to take supplements like Chlorella.

I had ENERGYbits founder Catharine Arnston on a past episode to talk about her products which primarily aids in the cleansing and healing of our cells. For those who want to try her products may refer to our episode and order through her website.  Don’t forget to apply the LTH promo code to avail of the 20% discount upon checkout. 

Dangers of Mercury

Dr. Doug Phillips says that out of all the heavy metals, it is mercury that we have to watch out for. He has been doing detoxes for mercury for over two decades and says maintenance is a lifelong commitment. Keeping our liver clean also significantly helps, although a laser detox is the best option.

“Mercury is in every nucleus of a cancer cell. I advise people to do a detox and replace mercury fillings. Those who also had root canals should be careful,” said Dr. Doug Phillips.

Other Toxic Problems

Aside from the heavy metals, Dr. Doug Phillips says fungus and molds are also a major problem. He says it is thirty to forty times stronger than it used to be because of EMFs.

“If you have fungus and molds, infection forms in the sinus which leads to chronic inflammation making it so you can’t get rid of anything else. Lyme is hard to treat if there is fungus present,” said Dr. Doug Phillips.

Dr. Doug Phillips also suggests being alert for the possible presence of parasites. Some parasites are hard to detect in the body, and it takes through testing to be able to identify that parasites may be a cause of your health problem.

Living Organisms

Dr. Doug Phillips also cites the work of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura who initially discovered how to use plant leaves to remove heavy metals from the body. One plant that can remove mercury from the body is the coriander plant or cilantro.

Based in New York, Dr. Yoshiaki Omura found out that organisms that cause infections hide in body areas with a high concentration of heavy metals like lead, mercury, and aluminum. Organisms used the heavy metals to protect themselves from antibiotics.

“I learned about the difference in the organisms, how they are now and how they used to be. The organisms used to have a cell wall. When they had a cell wall, our immune system could identify them by the information on the cell wall,” explains Dr. Doug Phillips.

He adds, “Organism evolved, and the cell wall disappeared, so that made them very pliable. These organisms live inside the cell now. The autonomic nervous system which we were using as a guide, only goes into the extracellular space. It doesn’t go inside the cell. We were missing all the intracellular organisms.”

Direct Resonance Testing

Dr. Doug Phillips learned direct resonance testing from Dr. Yoshiaki Omura. He learned how to test intracellular with direct resonance testing. That eventually opened a whole new world of treatment available for patients.

“Dr. Klinghardt and I both expanded our knowledge. I had people coming to me with dental problems but the Board of Dentistry, when you have a board, usually people on the board are not very good in their profession. They are people who are satisfying their ego in the profession by being on the board,” shares Dr. Doug Phillips.

Autonomic Response Testing

Autonomic response testing, on the other hand, is a technique developed by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt with the help of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura, It is a technique that is advanced and accurate for muscle testing.

The method is being used by more medical professionals to dive deeper into finding out the cause of a patient’s health condition. It is easy to administer and provides quick results, so it saves people time and money.

Legal Battle

Dr. Doug Phillips encountered legal battles in the late 90s that eventually turned his life around. He recalls people on the Board of Dentistry were judging him so Dr. Doug Phillips had to stand up against them.

“I knew what I was doing, and I had 22 top doctors testifying for me. It was a two-week trial. The board had two doctors testify for them, one from the Board of Medicine and Board of Dentistry. The judge ruled in my favor. I won in court,” Dr. Doug Phillips said.

But apparently, the board had the power to overrule what the judge said. Because of that, the board revoked Dr. Doug Phillips’ license. Dr. Doug Phillips took up a higher level. But things were already shifting at that point because Dr. Doug Phillips was also a Naturopath by then.

Career Shift

By 2001, Dr. Doug Phillips was practicing as a Naturopath. Rather than go after getting back his dentist license, he decided to offer alternative treatments since he is licensed by The Commission of Religious Consulting and Healing.

“I have patients from all over. People are frustrated. We’re reaching out. Because what they want is their quality of life back,” said Dr. Doug Phillips. “But their health isn’t enough to support them to be happy. So what we do is autonomic response testing to find out the cause of what’s going on and not just treat symptoms.” 

He adds, “I’m not licensed to do any medication but what I do is better. I do herbal nutraceuticals. We train the patient how it goes through every cell in the body for 5 to 6 hours after they take it. And we train them what stops that from working.”

Using Peptides

Dr. Doug Phillips also used peptides. A peptide is a compound that contains two or more amino acids. The peptides are from the immune system of the great white shark and the Australian saltwater crocodile.

Citing Lyme disease as an example, Dr. Doug Phillips says Lyme disease has very tricky organisms. But once Dr. Doug Phillips has found the herbal nutraceuticals that goes exactly with the organisms, there is usually a good result after a few days.

Aside from testing for bacteria, fungus, parasites and algae, Dr. Doug Phillips also administers tests for herbicide, pesticide, fungicide, plastic, toxic solvents and metal. He says that those toxins are polluting the internal environment. Because of that, it makes the organism stronger, making our system more acidic. 

Laser Detox

“We have ways to get rid of the toxin within a day and a half. No drugs. It’s a laser detox called laser energetic detox. The laser detox utilizes all the light bodies surrounding us by communicating with every cell over a hundred times a minute,” explains Dr. Doug Phillips.

Dr. Doug Phillips further explains that laser detox uses that power to plant the detox in the cell. Apparently, the body goes through a process every twenty-four and a half hours as our vital life force travels through our whole system for the detox to take place. After that, the toxin disappears.

Laser Detox Procedure

Dr. Doug Phillips has treated people who have cancer, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and joints pain with laser detox. First of all, Dr. Doug Phillips conducts an initial assessment of the patient’s health history.

The next step of the program is eliminating or reserving autoimmunity through treatment. Each treatment is customized for the patient and a day and a half after; patients can start their detox. Usually, in the third session, patients no longer have the autoimmune disease.

“We have over 90 flowers in our test kit. Flowers resonate with the emotions. Once they find all the toxins, we find the flowers in the test kit that resonate with the emotional complex binding the toxin. And we pick that with a laser detox,” Dr. Doug Phillips explains.

Dr. Doug Phillips further explains that they use invisible beams for specific areas of the body and the brain. Patients sit with shoes off, then Dr. Doug Phillips lasers flowers on the bottom of feet, palm hands and ears.

“There’s an organ representation of the whole body on the bottom of the feet, the palms of the hand and ears,” said Dr. Doug Phillips. “The patient then stands up so we can shine the laser beam and laser the whole body. What we are lasering is the layers of light that surround the body. It is done within half an hour.” 

Bio

Dr. Doug Phillips had previously practiced General Dentistry for over thirty-eight years.  In the late 1970’s, his traditional, restorative practice began to shift to a more specialized focus–patients with a chronic headache, facial pain, and jaw dysfunction.  He became increasingly interested in why some of these patients healed with traditional treatments, while others did not. 

In search of answers, Dr. Doug Phillips began to study Biological Dentistry in the early 1990s.  This is an extension of dentistry which is concerned with the dental contributions to chronic illness.  He learned that the body’s immune and autonomic nervous system (the systems in charge of our survival) need to be cleansed of toxins and pathogens, many of which are lodged in the jaw before healing can occur. 

As a result of his studies, Dr. Doug Phillips incorporated Biological Dentistry into his practice.  He created Biological Evaluation for patients who were not responding predictably to traditional treatment.  Through this extensive interview and examination, information was gathered regarding the patient’s teeth, jaw, bite, body, psycho-emotional status, and lifestyle habits. 

Next, using Autonomic Response Testing and Direct Resonance Testing, the organisms and toxins present in the jaw, as well as the corresponding dysfunctioning organs and glands of the body, were identified.  These were the pathogens that needed to be eliminated for healing to begin and health restored. 

Dr. Doug Phillips targets the energetic aspect of everything from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and cancer to Lyme disease and multiple chemical sensitivity. Dr. Doug Phillips aims at the cause of the problem, not its symptoms. Dr. Doug Phillips is in no way practicing as a medical doctor.

33. 245 The Power of Sweat, Flushing Toxins, Mold, Heavy Metals, Autoimmune, Circulation, Blood Pressure, Sleep Inflammation and Weight Loss with the Founder of Sunlighten Connie Zack and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Sunlighten Saunas

http://learntruehealth.com/sunlighten-saunas/

Experts advocate sweating out toxins through saunas like Sunlighten Sauna. Numerous studies have proven the effectivity of using saunas regularly. To know more about the science behind the benefits of sweating out toxins and more, I am thrilled to have Sunlighten Saunas founder Connie Zack to explain more about it in this episode.

Personal Experience

As many of my regular listeners know, I have tried a lot of diets over the years. I’d lose considerable weight, but the toxicity I have to deal with along with losing weight has prevented me from keeping the weight off.

I have also tried a lot of types of saunas since I very well know saunas are effective in sweating out toxins.  My Naturopath already recommended doing saunas four years ago.

Sauna units have different types. The sauna company that my Naturopath recommended to me, unfortunately, didn’t suit my budget nor program requirements. Apparently, when one has a considerable amount of heavy metals toxicity in the body, it is those toxins that prevent one from efficiently keeping the weight off. That’s why when I first heard of the Sunlighten Saunas at the recent Heavy Metals Summit, I was overjoyed!

Not only did Sunlighten Saunas satisfy my basic requirement of sweating out toxins, but it also had a lot of other benefits, and was easy on the budget.  Most of all, it was highly recommended by Dr. Mark Hyman and Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, two experts that I have guested on my show.  

Heavy Metals Toxicity

Connie Zack has been using saunas for quite a while.  She had always had a passion for wellness and shares that Sunlighten Sauna was conceived when her brother experienced heavy metal toxicity.

“My brother’s health situation was the reason why I’m doing what I’m doing today. My brother was so ill. He had brain fog, chronic fatigue, and vertigo,” said Connie Zack. “His dentist apparently recommended infrared technology. Plus, I read articles that there may be some benefits for it to remove some of the mercury.”

Connie Zack also recalls that her brother’s condition was so bad that his skin was almost grayish. But fortunately, his normal skin color came back after consistently sweating out toxins through a sauna.

It’s alarming how our present environment is getting to be very toxic, but yet we are not aware of it.  Some are even clueless about the level of danger that vaccines cause.  Most vaccines, especially a high dosage, contain heavy metals and mercury.  That is why it is not advisable to administer these kinds of vaccines to newborns.

Types Of Sunlighten Sauna

If you’ve decided to buy your sauna unit, you must first be clear on your requirements.  Saunas have different types of infrared technology, suited for different kinds of health conditions.

Connie Zack proudly reveals that she has extensively worked with scientists and experts to come up with a fantastic line of Sunlighten Saunas. Her company offers the following types: 3-in-1 Sauna, Far Infrared Sauna, Community Sauna and Portable Sauna. The one I got is from the 3-in-1 Sauna Collection which I truly love!

“For the mPulse 3-in-1 Sauna, you’re getting two additional wavelength and additional healing parts of the infrared spectrum. The Sunlighten Signature and Solo gives you the highest quantity of Far Infrared available in the market,” Connie Zack explains. “The mPulse 3-in-1 has the most amount of Far Infrared combined with a particular frequency. Each wavelength is delivered separately.”

According to Connie Zack, the saunas with Mid and Near Infrared provide the best benefit for health, especially for those suffering from chronic pain.  The Solo Sauna on the other hand only has Far Infrared, but it is good for getting rid of toxic overload. 

Types Of Infrared

As mentioned earlier, saunas have different types, primarily because of the different levels of infrared technology.  According to Connie Zack, there are three types of infrared saunas to choose from.

Near Infrared has the shortest wavelength. Saunas with near-infrared technology targets skin renewal, wound healing and cell health. Mid Infrared has a longer wavelength. It paves the way for oxygen flow through the blood vessels and improves circulation. Connie Zack says athletes often use Mid Infrared saunas for joints, tissue and muscle recovery.

Far Infrared, on the other hand, has the longest wavelength.  It penetrates deep into the body and targets sweating out toxins. Heart rate and metabolic rate significantly improves with this type of wavelength.

“Muscle relaxation comes from each wavelength touching the body differently. The Far Infrared goes into your core, increasing your circulation at a deep level. Oxygen promotes cardiovascular flow to the body and helps relax the body. It also gives you more energy.”

I love the type of sauna I got. The wavelength is perfect. It’s therapeutic and relaxes every muscle in my body.  Going to the sauna is my “me” time, but my husband and my son love it, too!

“If we can mimic and deliver that same wavelength and combine it with other wavelengths, you’re not only going to get the benefits of the Near Infrared but also get the detox benefits, recovery and weight loss benefits of Mid Infrared,” said Connie Zack. 

Choosing The Right Wellness Program

Saunas aren’t just about sweating out toxins. One other reason why I love Sunlighten Saunas is due to the wellness programs they offer.  They have different heating mechanisms that target detoxification, anti-aging, weight loss, relaxation, cardiovascular, or pain relief.  You can also request for a custom program according to your specific needs.

I chose the detox program. At first, I started slow, and I’ve been going to the sauna for 20 days now. Currently, I’m on two programs. My detox program takes around 38 minutes, and my weight loss and the cardio program comes right after. 

“The release of toxins comes from the increase in temperature. Great way to get your circulatory system back in check. That’s one of the reasons why the body feels better, behaves better and removes the toxic elements,” explains Connie Zack. 

She adds, “Move the Mid Infrared to a shorter wavelength, so it doesn’t go deep into the body. That’s the beauty of the program. You don’t need all three at the maximum capacity for everything. Because you can adjust the wavelength depending on what you’re trying to achieve.”

I played around and tried all the programs.  Ever since I go to the sauna regularly, I’ve had a restful sleep.  It makes me feel relaxed and brings down the stress. Plus, I already lost over nine pounds!

I feel healthy as ever lately. My diet is mainly plant-based and absolutely no sugar.  I also take chlorella for supplements. Aside from doing saunas daily, I go on hikes around my area.  It is indeed paying off since my jeans are pretty much looser now.

Quality Saunas For Better Health

Connie Zack says that ideally, we all need self-care. But unfortunately, it is so under-realized. She also says that just because it is an infrared sauna, doesn’t mean it’s going to transform your cells and change your body. Ultimately, you need to make sure you have a product like the Sunlighten technology to give you high enough quantity of infrared so that it can be game-changing.

Sunlighten Saunas’ company philosophy in creating their products is that the Sunlighten experience is meant to be healing and enjoyable. It is not something that you have to suffer through. When you come out of their saunas, you’ll feel empowered and lighter.

“Hot air keeps the heat inside the space. You want to get these healing energies into the body so that they can make a change. What we have been able to do, is take out all that excess heat,” said Connie Zack. 

She adds,”And what’s coming out through the body is a wonderful healing energy without the air getting hot. When it gets in, it increases the blood flow and decreases the size of blood vessels. Bottomline, you’re decreasing the workload of the heart.”

Kids Can Use Saunas

In my past episode with My Kid Cures Cancer couple Ryan and Teddy Sternagel, they confirmed that regular sauna sessions significantly helped in the recovery of their son Ryder who had cancer. 

Ideally, for a child to use a sauna, the recommended duration is one minute for each year of the child’s age.  Ryan and Teddy Sternagel are happy owners of a Sunlighten Solo Sauna, as well as Dr. Mark Hyman who has the same type of sauna.

Kids using saunas is not unusual.  It emulates being in a mother’s womb. Kids like it because it has a natural feel.

According to Connie Zack, many kids use the sauna, especially kids with attention deficit disorders. It helps calm them down. The sauna duration varies with every child.

“Every child is different, and it depends on the condition. But generally, the rule is a minute per age. I have an 8 and 10-year-old. They have tried it all. I learned kids know when to get out because their connection with their body is strong and alive,” assures Connie Zack. 

Sauna Program Consultation

Connie Zack shares that they also work with rehab centers treating people with drug and alcohol addiction.  With so many wellness programs and a wide range of saunas to choose from, Connie Zack suggests that it is best to get in touch and schedule a consultation.  Her direct email is czack@sunlighten.com. 

Connie Zack, co-owner and Chief Sales Officer of Sunlighten, started the business in a basement in 1999. Her husband and co-founder Aaron Zack is the company’s CEO. Together, the Zacks have led Sunlighten to tremendous growth since those basement days. 

Before starting Sunlighten, Connie Zack held positions at Procter & Gamble ranging from Alternative Marketing Manager, District Pharmaceutical Sales Manager and Gastrointestinal National Manager. During her 11 years at Procter & Gamble, she made her way into the P&G Leadership Group, a collection of elite staff groomed for future executive positions and onto the P&G Women’s Board, a mentoring program for junior-level female staff.

Meal Prep Mondays  

http://learntruehealth.com/meal-prep-mondays/

We’re back for part two of our Meal Prep Mondays! There’s so much to learn about how to meal prep.  My guest, Alex Torres and I are so excited to continue talking about how to incorporate the habit of meal prep into your daily routine so read on to find out. 

When To Meal Prep 

First of all, Alex Torres segregates the types of people who plan to meal prep.  This is because we all have different priorities and lifestyles.  He breaks it down as follows: 

Single people

– they have a lot of time on their hands

– it doesn’t matter what day, but do what day is best for you

– mornings are better but evenings are fine as well

– if you are exhausted, meal prep one meal for one to two days to get started 

Couples

– if you both know each other well, make it fun by cooking for each other

– weekends are best, Saturdays in particular or Mondays and Tuesdays 

Parents with Kids

– take turns in cooking

– meal prep is usually on Saturdays

– cook in bulk

– ask family members what they like

– prepare meals for one or two days to avoid soggy vegetables  

Using Glass Containers 

Have you heard that using plastic containers to store or heat food in the microwave is harmful to your health? It is! Which reminds me of a story I heard about singer Paul McCartney’s wife, Linda. 

I interviewed a Naturopath who happened to be one of the doctors of Linda McCartney who was vegan. She would bring her containers everywhere and use it to heat food in the microwave. 

Years later, Linda McCartney developed breast cancer. And the cause was traced to her frequent use of Tupperware to heat food in the microwave. When she was tested for cancer tissues, doctors discovered that it was full of toxic substances that are also found in Tupperware. 

When we store and heat food in plastic, that is cancer-causing. That’s why Alex Torres suggests the use of compost containers. It can be used one more time if you first store food with no liquids. He also recommends using a food grade liner to prevent leaks. 

Invest In Cookware 

Microwave destroys nutrients, so it is a good idea to invest in good pans and a big pot. Find kitchenware or cookware that make you excited to meal prep. 

“My favorite is investing in knives and a good cutting board. Because the worse is trying to cut a tomato. Also, invest in cast iron pots and pans. Season cast iron pans by washing and putting olive oil. Leave the pan out. You’ll use it more when you see it lying around,” said Alex Torres. 

My personal favorite is using a bamboo spoon. There’s something about stirring the food with something organic. It feels so much better. Another fun gadget for me is the Veggie Bullet. It turns everything into spiral shapes. Sweet potato and carrot noodles, in particular, are delicious! 

Meal Prep For Parents 

For some reason, food tastes better on the third day since it was cooked, especially marinade dishes. It’s probably because all the flavor seeps in well by that time. 

Alex Torres says this is also true for soups and stews. But he also advises to watch out for squash and zucchini.  These vegetables hold a lot of water and over time, they turn into mush. 

Certain Mexican, Italian and Indian dishes pick up flavor within a day or two. But even if the dishes are tasty, it is still not a guarantee that kids will eat it. 

“It is not easy to get kids to eat. So, a good way to make them eat is to let them help cook what they want. Getting them involved,” Alex Torres said. 

He shares that his 9-year-old daughter made a sandwich filled with vegetables. It was filled with ginger, Asian-inspired seasoning, and dressings. If Alex Torres made that and gave it to his daughter, there’s no way she was going to eat it. But because his daughter did by herself, she was more receptive. 

Learning To Cook 

Most of us have a hectic life, so people rarely cook anymore.  It often leads to bad food choices when eating out.  That is why Alex Torres believes that people need to be re-educated that meal prep or cooking at home is not hard at all. 

“Adults need to go back to cooking class. I think in the future, we’ll see a lot more cooking classes. It will become popular in the next couple of years,” said Alex Torres. “Honestly, America needs to learn how to cook at home again. Start cooking good home-cooked meals.”  

Right Mindset 

I know it seems pretty hard to transition. But it shouldn’t stop you from trying it first. To everyone who is thinking of switching to a plant-based diet, try it out for a month and see how it feels. I lost 25 pounds of water weight in my first month of practicing a plant-based diet. 

A lot of people also find it hard to stick to a plant-based diet especially when they go to gatherings where they are made to eat all kinds of food. Guess what? There’s a solution to that. 

A Health Coach told me to stop telling people you are gluten-free or vegan. Do not put a label on yourself. Say, “No thanks. It doesn’t make me feel good.” The tactic works! 

My mom was obsessed with dieting. That’s what led me to yo-yo dieting during my whole adult life until I found a healthy relationship with food. 

You see, my mom was a runway model during her younger years. She was obsessed with maintaining her figure. But during my puberty phase, I gained weight even if I was athletic and eating healthy. 

My mom interpreted my weight gain the wrong way and immediately put me on diets. She made me very conscious of weight and food. As a result, I was not getting the nutrition I needed, and I rebelled. 

Looking back, the lesson learned was that we must all empower our kids on making food choices. Many people eat what they eat because that was how they were raised to eat. So, look at your belief system, whether or not your choice comes from what you want rather than adopted from everyone else. 

Back To Nature 

I highly recommend that everyone watch the Back To Eden video documentary. It narrates the story of Paul Gautschi who lives in Washington but grew up in Los Angeles. 

Paul Gautschi has been gardening since he was a kid. The garden that he currently maintains has plants growing on its own with no chemicals nor tilling soil. The video also contains a lot of helpful gardening tips like how many wood chips to use. 

I got so inspired by the video, so I’m planning to build my garden soon. Ultimately, it’s all about coming back to nature.  Gardening can be therapeutic as well as an anti-depressant.  I also happen to know of a story wherein a kid was able to get out of the spectrum through gardening. 

“It’s up to you and me to show our kids. I want to go to sleep knowing I made a difference and that we are moving forward in the life we want to live,” said Alex Torres. “I think it’s vital tapping back the way it was back then, like the gardens and all that.”  

The Plant-Based Hut 

Looking ahead, said Alex Torres is slated to launch his new business venture called The Plant-Based Hut.  Because going on a plant-based diet has changed his life so much, Alex Torres now want to spread the word about the benefits of a plant-based diet. 

The Plant-Based Hut will offer plant-based meal preps.  They will primarily be doing food deliveries to clients within the central Florida area. Eventually, Alex Torres hopes that the business will expand to selling their produce at the farmers’ market. 

“There’s something about eating healing foods that are very filling. That is the difference I want to make,” said Alex Torres. 

Alex Torres is the man behind @Mealprepmondays on Instagram. He is a full-time influencer, blogger, and dad to four kids. Alex Torres is married to his wife Diana for over 15 years, and who just so happens to blog as well. 

Alex Torres has been living in Orlando, Florida for the past ten years. He and his family previously lived in Williamsburg, Virginia for a couple of years, and most of his life in Long Island, New York.

35. 243 Using Meal Prep to Heal Disease and Achieve Your Health Goals, Crohns Disease, Plant-Based Food Prep, Meal Prep Mondays, with Instagram Sensation Alex Torres and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Meal Prep Mondays

http://learntruehealth.com/meal-prep/

Meal prep saves time and money. It also helps us to stay on a health program. I have a fantastic guest today who will talk about how to meal prep our way to health.  Alex Torres had struggled with weight issues, but because he learned how to meal prep, he affirms that it genuinely helped speed up his weight loss.

Weight Loss Journey

Alex Torres started having kids in 2012. And like most parents who started a family, Alex steadily gained weight. He recalls that it was easy to put on weight and hard to get it off.

Frustrated with his fluctuating weight, he started to search for fitness inspirations on the internet.  Eventually, he found a way to lose weight on Instagram.

Crohn’s Disease

Alex Torres remembers the time when he weighed around 215 lbs. And yet he was only 5’7.  His height was not in proportion to his weight. Then in late 2015 or early 2016, Alex Torres was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.

Chron’s disease is a digestive tract disorder and is known to cause severe diarrhea, fatigue, abdominal pain and weight loss. Alex Torres recalls that he collapsed to the floor while eating a burger and experienced severe stomach pain.

Alex Torres lost a lot of weight because of Crohn’s disease. He rapidly lost weight and went down to 145 lbs. His appendix was also affected.

“My symptoms were having very erratic sleep patterns and fatigue. How I was eating marked the tipping point. Factors include 70% from eating, 20% due to stress and the rest from lack of exercise,” said Alex Torres. 

Winning Meal Plan

During his research, Alex Torres entered a meal plan and fitness program contest giveaway in 2012. He saw the meal plan, and it initially looked doable. Alex Torres dug deeper by also looking into the progress of bodybuilders who tried the meal plan.

Looking further into the menu of the meal plan, Alex Torres saw an opportunity to simplify the recipes. He then experimented on the recipes by cooking it in bulk to see if it worked for a month.

Tweaking the meal plan turned out to be successful. Alex Torres was so overjoyed that he made sure to thank the organizer of the contest giveaway.

Meal Prep Mondays

Alex Torres’ Meal Prep Mondays on Instagram was created after he saw an initial change in his body due to his new plant-based diet. The account shot up to fame so fast that Alex Torres recalls having around 1,800 followers overnight.

But then it wasn’t all smooth sailing all the way.  Alex Torres struggled to lose weight, only to gain it back. His weight fluctuation went on until he had more kids. Because he was frustrated that he was not losing weight despite working out, Alex Torres decided to go back and be more focused on meal prep.

Helpful Reminders

Alex Torres says too much of everything is not good. With a plant-based diet, our body apparently knows how to work with it better. Our body also breaks down nutrients better and maximizes it for energy versus just sugar or simple carbs.

“I could stuff myself, but I don’t really gain weight because it is not processed food. The body knows how to use it differently,” Alex Torres said. “Watch your surroundings also because family and friends play a big factor for you to be able to stick to a diet.” 

He adds, “Do not focus on the process. Focus on the outcome or goal. Because if you focus on the process, you are never going to do it. Sometimes, people mock you because they want to do what you are doing. It’s all about perspective and being open-minded.”

Right Motivation

Many people are scared to try new things. And that’s natural.  But ultimately, it should stop us from getting out of our comfort zone.

“So funny that it’s almost like they’re scared. It’s because they’ve been living with it for so long that they thought it was part of them,” explains Alex Torres. “That’s what we humans do. We live with something for so long that we think it’s normal.”

But fear of the unknown did not faze Alex Torres.  In fact, that’s what motivated him to succeed and eventually help people.

“The first few months were rough. My wife suggested for me to stop eating meat. I first went gluten-free. It took about a month before seeing real change,” shares Alex Torres. 

He adds, “By the fourth month, my skin started clearing up, my nails were stronger, rashes on my feet started to go away, and my hair grew quicker. I also noticed fewer mood swings in my kids and fewer trips to the dentist or doctor.”

According to Alex Torres, it hasn’t been a year since switching to a plant-based diet, but the benefits have been so incredible, that even his mother is now practicing a plant-based diet.

I can relate to Alex Torres. Dr. Joel Fuhrman was recently on my show where he revealed a very scientific-based diet that heals many diseases and prevents diseases. Even the late dentist, Dr. Weston A. Price presented many case studies proving that there is indeed a link between diet and oral health.

Recommended Meal Prep

Meal prep is easy once you get the hang of it.  I for one, like to bake sweet potatoes for two hours in a 325-degree oven.  Make sure to have it cool down before taking the skin off the potatoes. Because according to experts, baked root vegetable skins cause cancer.

“I also recommend stuffing sweet potatoes by adding anything in the center. Baking is your best friend for meal prep because it does a lot of work for you. Another thing is crockpot for soups, stews, and broths,” suggests Alex Torres.

Storing Food

Alex Torres says meal prep is actually and re-introduction to cooking. Now it’s just about the method with meal prep because everybody has their way of eating.

“I teach people the quickest and easiest way to meal prep. Save your leftovers. Some of our meal prep comes from leftovers,” said Alex Torres. 

He adds, “Maximum for meal prep is three days. Meal prep doesn’t have to be for life. It is a starting point to familiarize yourself with cooking food, preparing it for yourself and leaving it ready, so you don’t have to grab some fast food.” 

Animals Can Be Vegan

I had a guest on my show, Kristie Middleton who talked about going meatless.  Most of my guests who are vegan have pets, and I was surprised when Kristie Middleton’s dog is likewise on a plant-based diet.

Alex Torres can relate because his dog is also vegan.  And according to him, his dog had a lot of positive health changes. Incidentally, there’s a Pet Cancer documentary set to launch on April 4, so I’m inviting everyone to sign up and learn more about how to care for our pets better.

Looking Ahead

Alex Torres likes to think long-term. And because he wants to be with friends and family longer, he leads by example.

One way of leading by example is growing his food. He says our body is like a seedling, so we have to feed our body with the right stuff. 

“Fruits and veggies are your best friend. Anything new is weird. Give it a try. The best way to do it is making sure it’s on the counter for you to see,” said Alex Torres. “The first meal is the first impression of meal prep. Cook what you want to eat. Do not cook something just because you saw it on Instagram or Pinterest.”

Eating Right 

http://learntruehealth.com/eating-right

Eating right has always been what health experts recommend for optimal health. But I know many of us are guilty of taking eating right for granted. I am thrilled that Dr. Joel Fuhrman is with us today to thoroughly explain the benefits of eating right.

Childhood Influence

Dr. Joel Fuhrman was into competitive figure skating in the early 70s. He shares that his dad was overweight and sickly, so the elder Fuhrman bought a lot of books about eating right.

Because so many books about eating right were within reach, Dr. Joel Fuhrman embraced the importance of excellent nutrition during his teenage years up to his early 20s.

When Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s athletic career ended and went on to medical school, he decided to become a physician specializing in nutritional medicine. It was not a surprising choice since eating right made Dr. Joel Fuhrman maximize his athletic performance.

Harsh Reality

Dr. Joel Fuhrman says he already knew from way back that most people were often sick. Common health problems were high blood pressure, headaches, diabetes, autoimmune conditions and many other mental illnesses due to nutritional ignorance.

The rising number of sickly people is also traced to the standard American diet. Processed food has been the cause of health problems since the 70s.

“Now it’s up to over 65% of calories from processed foods. One in five Americans are mentally ill in response to junk food diet,” shares Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “Never did I imagine a career as rewarding and fulfilled, and with this much impact in this country.” 

Fulfilling Career

Dr. Joel Fuhrman says that choosing this career path has been very rewarding. People in his line of work has a positive effect on millions of Americans. That is why he is excited over the potential of nutrition.

“I knew I was going to medical school and learning that doctors are mostly drug prescribers, doing surgeries and emergency care,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said. “I was self-educated, and I made it my career to review, as well as study the science and literature in a comprehensive fashion about nutrition. So I know all the studies that have been done.”

Benefits Of Mushrooms

Dr. Joel Fuhrman has always been fascinated to learn about all the phytochemical factors and biological features of mushrooms among other things. Apparently, mushrooms have anti-angiogenesis effects, and they don’t allow tumors to spread.

“Angiogenesis means the growth of new blood vessels. Insulin is a hormone that angiogenesis is promoting,” explains Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “Mushrooms, onions and green vegetables have anti-angiogenesis effects that oppose the effect of insulin, prevent fat from being stored and prevents tumors from growing in the body as well.”

Dr. Joel Fuhrman even mentions one study on mushrooms. The study found that women who ate 10 grams of mushrooms regularly for over a decade, has 64% reduced incidents of breast cancer.

Current Statistics

Raw onions and scallions were likewise found to have 55 to 88% reduction rate in most major cancers for people who eat them regularly. Because of this, Dr. Joel Fuhrman sees the importance of putting a diet portfolio together.

“Include all these foods that individually have shown to be the most protective. Put them together in a diet that removes cancer-causing elements,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said. “In reality, we can win the war on cancer. We can wipe out 95% of cancers and save millions of lives.”

New Technology

One good thing about the current generation is the fact that medical technology has been rapidly improving every year. More high tech equipment has been made available to detect many health problems in its early stages.

“We now have new technology enabling to diagnose breast cancer, perhaps 10 to 15 years before mammograms can. In the next five years, medical care in the U.S. can be revolutionized as we can diagnose cancer much earlier. The earlier the detection, the more hope for nutritional intervention,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

Success Stories

Dr. Joel Fuhrman has countless stories of success treating patients who signed up for his programs on how to eat right. Most of them did not need surgery, got off medication and their heart disease melted away. Many of his patients are thriving in health in their 90s.

“Don’t underestimate the therapeutic potential of nutritional excellence compared to the relative ineffectiveness of drugs. If only people knew how dangerous most of these drugs were,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “The real healthcare is self-care. What we do in our own lives is what keeps us healthy, not what doctors can do for us.”

Changing Ways

Dr. Joel Fuhrman is passionate about teaching peers and patients on how to eat well to live well. He has advised doctors to spend more time with people whom they usually prescribe medication.

“They don’t have time to educate people. People need a lot of knowledge to protect themselves against problems like cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and dementia to be able to live a hundred years old,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said.

But Dr. Joel Fuhrman clarifies that he is not claiming that most cancers reverse themselves. The early stage he says is more predictably reversible. Apart from physical health, Dr. Joel Fuhrman says our emotional health is also essential.

Busting Myths

Dr. Joel Fuhrman says that most things people believe about nutrition are wrong. That’s why he advises people to look for studies with a lot of credence.

“Micronutrient insufficiencies lead to an unrelenting desire to overeat calories and food addictions. Regardless of the mechanisms involved, we have to achieve an excellent level of micronutrients,” explains Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “We have to be exposed to the full spectrum of micronutrients that the human needs for proper health and survival.”

Dr. Joel Fuhrman also reveals that most Americans look for fads and gimmicks to speed up metabolic rate and prevent getting fat. He adds that the real science leading to slow the aging process and enhancing longevity is eating slightly less food so we can slow down metabolic rate.

Diet And Longevity

In connection with the topic of health, diet, and longevity, Dr. Joel Fuhrman cites the book, The Good Life by Helen and Scott Nearing. Scott Nearing was an M.I.T. scholar and economist.

The Nearing couple lived in Maine. Living in one of the coldest areas in the United States, the couple ate healthily and grew their food to survive. Scott Nearing lived to be 101 years old, and Helen Nearing lived until she was in her late 90s. Their long life is attributed to eating right.

“It’s not just about living longer but rather having a healthy life expectancy as we live longer. The problem with most Americans is that ten years before these people pass away, they suffer from a poor quality of life. They don’t enjoy their later years,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said.

He adds, “Most of these chronic illnesses that plaque Americans are not predominantly genetic. They are mostly from food and ignorance.”

Benefits Of Vegetables

Dr. Joel Fuhrman explains that our body has the ability through its anti-oxidant response element to repair and fix defects. Raw green vegetables can make cells clean and healthy like cabbage, arugula, broccoli, and watercress.

But did you know it’s not vegetables alone that do the job? Apparently, it’s the chemical reaction that happens when we chew vegetables that benefit us.

“Once vegetables mix with our saliva, it forms nitrous oxide and other beneficial compounds when the mouth bacteria activate it,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “As you crush those cell walls, the chemical reaction activating in your mouth forms cancer-protective compounds. So, chew salads exceptionally well.” 

Other Recommended Foods

Aside from onions and scallions, beans are highly recommended for a healthy diet. According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, beans extend our lifespan. Studies have shown that all the people who lived long ate beans.

“Beans also reduce the risk of breast cancer. The lectin in beans have anti-cancer effects, strengthens bone mass and immune system,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said.

Animal products, on the other hand, shortens lifespan, increases cardiovascular death and cancer. Dr. Joel Fuhrman says studies have proven that there is a link between dairy and breast cancer.

Fast Food Genocide Book

Dr. Joel Fuhrman likewise believes that health and nutrition should have a more in-depth curriculum in schools to teach kids the importance of eating right. The health problems caused by eating fast food is most certainly a valid concern.

“There is no better link between criminal behavior and drug abuse than candy consumption and junk food in childhood,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “I want people to be a ray of light, be informed and educated so they can articulate the problem. We have to arm our population with the right knowledge and increase our life years.”

He adds, “As Americans, we all stand for equal opportunity and the ability to have a great life. And by getting people to eat healthier, we can have so much more potential and leave this tragedy happening around us.”

37. 241 Creating Your Healthy Self One Carrot At A Time with Former Competitive Gymnast, Holistic Nutrition, Fitness, and Lifestyle Coach Allison Pelot and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Pure Energy Wellness

http://learntruehealth.com/pure-energy

Pure energy is something most of us strive to have.  To be able to do the things we need to do every day, having pure energy makes us more productive.  But the problem is, most of us are clueless on how to have pure energy. That’s why we’re so lucky to have Holistic Health Coach Allison Pelot to show us how to reach optimal health.

Life As A Gymnast

Allison Pelot was a former gymnast who had a lucrative career as an athlete for 20 years. She was very conscious on her physical training but put little emphasis on proper nutrition. It was only when she became a mother when she learned how food could give pure energy.

“I’m 45 years old now and had kids during my late 20s. Surprisingly, I can’t believe no one teaches athletes how to eat well,” shares Allison Pelot. “My son had issues with immunity, and I had severe digestive issues. Looking back, I was pretty malnourished.” 

Allison Pelot also recalls that doctors couldn’t do much. In fact, they made things worse. After doing some research, she decided to go on a gluten-free diet with her son.  Incorporating organic food into their diet, Allison Pelot started noticing changes.

Mission To Help Others

According to Allison Pelot, pure energy sparks transformation. Because she found the best way on how to have pure energy, that drove Allison Pelot’s desire to help other people.

“I became so passionate and started teaching people. Then I got into personal training again after having kids,” Allison Pelot said. “As I got older, I noticed changes. People particularly women are not aware of how the body changes over time and how we need good nutrition to keep all that in balance.” 

Stand On Vaccines

In episode 224 of Learn True Health, I interviewed Dr. Paul Thomas who was an advocate of eating real food and taking vitamins.  He has been in practice for 30 years and has approximately treated 13,000 kids.

Allison Pelot had a harrowing experience with vaccines when her son was younger. According to Allison Pelot, her son was always in a bad mood, crying all the time, and had digestive issues.

Allison Pelot’s son was 18 months old when he was given the controversial MMR vaccine. As soon as they got home, her son threw up, developed diarrhea and fever all at once.

By the third day, Allison Pelot’s son seemed to get better. However, while Allison Pelot was out, her babysitter called to tell her that her son wasn’t breathing. Emergency medics came and apparently, Allison Pelot’s son had a seizure.

Allison Pelot’s son had two more seizures when they got to the hospital. Doctors did several tests and initially speculated that the child had epilepsy. Long story short, Allison Pelot felt that the whole thing was a massive cover-up.

“That opened my eyes. If people feel like they want to do a vaccine for their child, that is their decision. I’m just sharing my story, and we decided not to do vaccine anymore. The risk was too much,” said Allison Pelot. 

She adds, “Fast forward when he was ten years old; he started having seizures at night. It went on for two to three years. And then it finally stopped.”

Allison Pelot breastfed her son part-time, then gave him formula and some supplements. But when he started to eat real food, like fruits and vegetables, things got better.

Going Gluten-Free

Allison Pelot also recommends going gluten-free. According to her, estrogen is a stress hormone which apparently makes our gut more sensitive to gluten. So if you have higher levels of serotonin and estrogen, it is going to make you more sensitive to gluten.

“But the most important part of immunity is keeping your blood sugar regular. If you let your energy reserves get too low, you’ll have nothing left for your innate immune system to work,” Allison Pelot said.

Allison Pelot also says to make an effort to eliminate endotoxins in the gut. It will be helpful in increasing your natural immunity as well as aid in your metabolism.

“Endotoxins is anything that’s going to cause harm to the body, like estrogen if it continues to recirculate or any harmful bacteria,” Allison Pelot said. “Anything that is going to help your metabolism is going to help your immunity. They go hand in hand.”

Getting Into Yoga

We have heard many benefits of yoga and Allison Pelot is one of them. She says yoga helps one maintain flexibility, especially when we get older. Yoga primarily teaches you how you move on the floor. It also calms the nervous system.

“Not everyone can go to the gym. So work movement into your day. Take a walk. It starts from there, and it can be so beneficial for every aspect,” said Allison Pelot. 

Recommended Superfoods

Allison Pelot says eating superfoods is excellent for hormonal balance and getting the immunity up. For women, in particular, you’ll have less estrogen which is essential. Superfoods also helps women produce more progesterone in the body.

“You’ll have more strength and will feel better in general. Women tend to have more fat as they age,” explains Allison Pelot. “The best food is milk or dairy. Start with cheese. It is a great source of protein especially for those who can’t digest meat.”

Allison Pelot also says we need lots of calcium in our body. And dairy helps build muscle and aids in recovery.

I was honestly surprised that Allison Pelot recommended dairy. My whole family is dairy-free, but we can handle ghee or small amounts of goat’s milk. It’s a big difference from cow to human dairy or breastmilk.

I remember my interview with Joshua Rosenthal, the creator of Institute for Integrative Nutrition. He’s a vegan, but added dairy to his diet and felt terrific. So ultimately, it depends on what body type you are.

No one diet is good for everyone. To figure what works for you, try a gluten-free diet for a month and see how it feels.

“First check if you are lactose-intolerant or you have high cortisol levels. A lot of times, people are sensitive to what they add to milk. There are plenty of options on what kind of milk you can have,” said Allison Pelot.

Fruits And Vegetables

Allison Pelot recommends eating tropical fruits because it has a bit of saturated fat. It is also high in potassium and as well as other minerals. Apparently, the sugar from tropical fruits comes with a lot of nutrients. 

“Pineapple, papaya, oranges, melons, kiwi are great. Not so much for mangoes because it is part of the poison oaks family. Berries are fine, but it does not produce enough energy and nutrients,” explains Allison Pelot. “Cook apples and pears to be able to digest it easier. 

She adds, “Bone broth, gelatin, shellfish are also good healing foods for the gut. Also consume liver once a week to get a good amount of  vitamin A.”

In selecting what food to eat, Allison Pelot says it is best to have a plan of recovery. Carrots, in particular, aids digestion. It also helps help take out the excess estrogen.

Apparently, carrots have anti-fungal properties. So, if you eat it raw, it can suck out the endotoxins in the gut like a natural antibiotic. Carrots do not cost much, and it is easy to digest aside from being an excellent digestive aid.

Allison Pelot however, cautions against juicing carrots. The dosage of keratin is high, and there is no more fiber once carrots are made into juice. Fiber is super important in the mix because we need fiber to pull out endotoxins.

Think Positive

Allison Pelot also stresses the importance of getting into a positive mindset. It can make all the difference in the world. She advises that we should likewise trust our body’s healing abilities. Building our body is the first step to optimal health. 

“Focus on things you care a lot about or things that give you joy. Part of the reason why Hawaii is so healing for people is because of the sun. Dark days are stressful on the body. So nourish yourself during stressful times,” Allison Pelot said. 

Integrate Yourself Podcast

Allison Pelot has a fantastic podcast where she invites experts to speak about health and wellness. It has been quite a journey for Allison Pelot because she affirms learning a lot in every episode.

“I’m surprised with what I learn. Maddy Moon’s interview stuck with me because of how she talked about the beginner’s mindset. It’s about opening up to listen to someone,” shares Allison Pelot. “The only way we’re going actually to be able to connect with each other is if we have a beginner’s mindset. Accept that we don’t know everything.”

Coaching Services And Other Resources

Allison Pelot provides coaching services.  She also has personal training, small group fitness, nutrition coaching, and workshops.

Those who want a more in-depth wellness program can sign up for Allison Pelot’s retreat in Oregon which is scheduled this spring. She is also currently working on a book and an online course about digestion for hormonal balance.

Bio

Allison Pelot started out as a competitive gymnast from age 5 to 21 years and later graduated with a Degree in Exercise Science from Georgia State University. Her health issues created a passion for learning more about holistic health. This led Allison Pelot to obtain certifications in holistic nutrition and lifestyle coaching and exercise coaching from the CHEK Institute in San Diego, CA. 

Allison Pelot has been coaching people in holistic nutrition and fitness for almost 20 years now. She has a practice in Portland Oregon and a health Podcast called Integrate Yourself.

38. 240 The Real Causes of Depression, and the Unexpected Solutions with Johann Hari and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
http://learntruehealth.libsyn.... download (audio/mpeg, 108.98Mb)

Description: Understanding Addiction

http://learntruehealth.com/understanding-addiction/

Understanding addiction, depression and anxiety rank high among the problems that people face. But conventional medicine often masks these problems by prescribing drugs. Johann Hari is a wonderful book author who is here today to explain the real cause of these problems and how we can solve it.

Chasing The Scream Book

In writing Chasing The Scream, Johann Hari recalls the personal journey it took for him to put the book together. He says the whole process taught him to think differently about something very close to his heart.

You see, when Johann Hari was growing up, he realized his family was dealing with issues, and that triggered his curiosity on understanding addiction. Eventually, Johann Hari went to places that had different approaches to responding to addiction.

According to Johann Hari, there are varying levels on how cultures deal with understanding addiction. Apparently, there are countries like Portugal wherein the government is compassionate when it comes to understanding addiction.

“The thing that most surprised me for the book is that it led directly to the journey. For my new book, Lost Connections, I realized I had fundamentally misunderstood what addiction was,” said Johann Hari. 

Johann Hari also shares that in countries like Great Britain, if a person steps out in front of a truck and breaks their hip, the hospital would give them a drug called diamorphine, for the pain. Incidentally, diamorphine is heroin in a medically pure form. 

“If what we think about addiction is right, it should be happening to all these people in the hospitals, but it’s not. The dosage is strong, but people are not addicted to it. It’s the opposite for people who do drugs in the streets,” said Johann Hari.

Rat Park

Johann Hari only began understanding addiction when he went to Vancouver and met Professor Bruce Alexander who he says changed his life. Apparently, Professor Bruce Alexander explained this theory of addiction in a different light.

Professor Bruce Alexander did an experiment way back in the 1970s using rats. One rat was isolated and did nothing but take drugs. To broaden the experiment, Professor Bruce Alexander built a Rat Park.

In the Rat Park, rats had colored balls, rat-food, and tunnels to play along with other rats.

There were also two kinds of water bottles; one was drugged water. It turns out most of the rats didn’t like the drugged water, and none of them died. The isolated rats, on the other hand, became heavy users of the drug.

“What this taught me is that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety but rather connection. And that requires us to respond in a completely different way to addiction,” Johann Hari said. “Normally, we have an approach based on shame and stigma which says what we need to do is impose more suffering on people who got addiction problems. But actually, pain is the cause of addiction.”

Understanding Depression And Anxiety

Johann Hari says the cause of addiction is about not wanting to be present in your life because your life is too painful than its supposed to be. Furthermore, he explains that when we have a story about our pain, it structures our distress.

“When your story begins to shift about that, and if you realize that depression and anxiety are not what you thought they were, that’s very destabilizing,” said Johann Hari. “It’s only if we accurately understand what is happening, that’s when we could find meaningful solutions.”

In writing Chasing The Scream book, it took Johann Hari a journey of 30,000 miles around the world interviewing experts and looking into different cultures. Ultimately, he learned a lot. We misunderstood depression and anxiety as a culture, and we’ve ignored what the best research shows us. 

Eye-opening Situation

Johann Hari shares that in 2000, Portugal faced a severe situation. The country had one of the worse problems in Europe. For starters, 1% of the population was addicted to heroin.

Every year, they tried to solve the situation the American way. They arrested more people, imprisoned more people, but it got worse. Then one day, the prime minister and the leader of the opposition got together in an effort towards understanding addiction. Together, they decided to do something bold since the war on drugs began 70 years before.

The government set up a panel of doctors, social workers, and sociologists to make recommendations. The group went on to spend two years researching. Eventually, the panel recommended that the government decriminalize all drugs. They also suggested allocating the government budget towards turning people’s lives around.

The government listened to the recommendations and put it into action. They spent some money on residential rehabilitation, therapy, and job creation. Small loans were also granted to those who wanted to start a small business. And guess what? The system worked! 

“If you trust in the journey, you will find better explanations. And those better explanations will open up different solutions. I think this is also how my Chasing The Scream book gave birth to me writing the Lost Connection.”

Lost Connection Book

The Lost Connection book details the nine real causes of depression and anxiety. It also contains Johann Hari’s interactions with scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions for depression and anxiety.

“There was equally strong evidence that we have natural psychological needs. We need to feel we belong and that life has meaning, the need to feel valued and that the future makes sense,” said Johann Hari. “Our culture is good at lots of things, but we’ve been getting less good at meeting these deep underlying psychological need that people have.”

Personal Experience

Johann Hari recalls the time he went to a doctor during his teenage years. He told the doctor about this pain bleeding out of him and that he couldn’t seem to regulate it. That made Johann Hari feel ashamed.

But then that doctor had a completely different biological story on how the brain works. So, it turned out that Johann Hari ended up being given prescribed drugs. Those drugs offered only temporary relief. Johann Hari remembers going back for higher doses but still experienced bouts of depression. Luckily, he eventually got out of that situation.

“We’ve been told to say to people that depression is just a brain disease or chemical imbalance and that we should just identify it by using a checklist. But we do not understand human pain,” said Johann Hari. 

Grief And Depression

Johann Hari says grief is not a pathology but instead a natural and human response. Depression and grief have the same symptoms.

“A leading U.S. expert on the debate on traumatic grief told me that if we can start to admit that it can be a response to life, that requires a total system overhaul on how the whole system works,” said Johann Hari. “Depression is grief for your own wider needs not being met.”

How then can we measure depression? Apparently, depression can be measured by something called the Hamilton scale from 1 to 51, with 51 being the worst. According to the leading experts at Harvard Medical School, chemical anti-depressants on average, will move people 1.8 points on the Hamilton scale. So here, you can see why drugs are not solving people’s problems.

Being Happy

Johann Hari reveals that there was a recent study about happiness involving people living in four countries —- United States, Russia, China, and Japan. The study showed that in the United States when people want to become consciously happier, they fail to do so. But in other countries, it’s the opposite.

Now, how can that be? Apparently, when most people in the United States try to make themselves happier, they do something for themselves. In the other countries, their definition of happiness means doing something for someone else.

“We have an implicitly individualistic idea of what it means to be happy. And a lot of other cultures implicitly have a collective idea of what it means to be happy,” said Johann Hari. “The more you think life is about how you look to other people, how much money you have and how much status you have, the more likely you will become depressed and anxious.”

Incidentally, if we just single out the United States, Johann Hari says the Amish people have the lowest rate of depression in the United States. This is because they also have the most collective idea of what it means to be happy.

Johann Hari also points out that having good spiritual health can positively impact the reduction of depression and anxiety. He says studies showed that the positive effects of a reduction in depression, anxiety, and addiction, are extremely co-related with the intensity of a person’s spiritual experience. 

“To get to the solution, we need to understand what is causing the problem. This is mostly a social, psychological, and spiritual crisis happening. People are hungry for this different kind of conversation. And I think people can see this is necessary.” 

Bio

Johann Hari is the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream, which is being adapted into a feature film. He was twice named Newspaper Journalist of the Year by Amnesty International UK. 

Johann Hari has written for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and others, and he is a regular panelist on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” His TED talk, “Everything You Think You Know About Addiction Is Wrong,” has more than 21 million views.

My Kid Cures Cancer

http://learntruehealth.com/my-kid-cures-cancer/

My Kid Cures Cancer is an excellent resource for parents who have a child with cancer.  It’s never easy when your child is suffering from the disease, and some parents go into panic mode. The journey wasn’t easy for my guests Ryan and Teddy Sternagel. This episode is all about how they weathered that storm.

How It All Began

The My Kid Cures Cancer bandwagon has been around for almost four years now.  It traces its roots back to when Teddy Sternagel got pregnant with son Ryder who is turning five years old this May.

The Sternagels describe themselves to be health-conscious parents.  Ryder was born at a birth center, and the Sternagel couple has long before already agreed not to vaccinate their child. The couple both ate healthily and Teddy even breastfed Ryder for two and a half years.

The Lump

Teddy Sternagel recalls that leading up to his first birthday; there were some things about Ryder that didn’t feel right. He had a hard time sitting up on his own. And from being a very chunky baby, he rapidly dropped down the growth chart.

Ryder was turning one that month and was nowhere near even being able to crawl much less even turn over. He had stopped growing at around six months of age. After being born above the 90th percentile in both height and weight, he had dropped down to the 25th.

“I was told by a Naturopath that it’s because I was breastfeeding him. Looking back, I felt that’s not true at all,” relates Teddy Sternagel. “One night in May 2014, I was getting Ryder ready for bed. As I was nursing him, I noticed a lump in Ryder’s back right next to his spine.” 

More Red Flags

The Sternagels started to realize there were more symptoms to be worried other than the lump on Ryder’s back. Ryder could not handle any solid food and would gag whenever he was fed anything. He also suffered from constipation. But doctors initially brushed off these concerns.

“We were told just to keep an eye on the lump and begin physical therapy for walking and speech therapy for eating,” said Teddy Sternagel. “The whole speech and physical therapy did not set right with us because we wanted to know why does he have a lump in his back and figure it out before doing anything else.”

The Official Diagnosis

After several weeks of hospital visits and tests, the official diagnosis finally came out before Ryder’s first birthday. Results showed that Ryder had a growing tumor larger than his kidney and out of his spinal canal. There were also two secondary tumors which had metastasized into his bones.

Tests also showed Ryder had been born with a double aortic arch. It was not life-threatening, but a heart surgery would be needed to correct it. This was why Ryder had a hard time swallowing solid foods.

Finding The Right Doctor

Finding the right doctor is not easy. It takes a lot of research. Initially, the Sternagels didn’t have much choice but to go ahead with conventional treatment. 

“With the FDA, you don’t have much choice. You have to do conventional treatment,” said Teddy Sternagel. “The chemotherapy did its job. It shrunk Ryder’s tumor very quickly. So we thought of not doing the entire protocol, stop early and take Ryder the rest of the way holistically.”

Moving To Utah

The Sternagels decided to move to Utah to continue Ryder’s treatment.  They were still on a conventional protocol but chose to seek alternative treatment after the fourth round of chemotherapy.

The couple felt blessed to have Naturopathic Oncologist Dr. Paul Anderson on their team. Their doctor respected their decision to seek an alternative route. Hence, the Sternagels felt lucky because not everyone was fortunate enough to have the right support system.

“Naturopaths are like doctors. There are good and bad. You have to take each person as an individual. And I think people get into trouble when they just put all of their faith into one group of people,” said Teddy Sternagel.

Researching On Alternative Treatments

The Sternagels researched continuously on alternative treatments for several years. One useful treatment is to have Ryder do saunas to sweat out the toxins from his body.

“Cancer cells can’t stand the heat as well as regular cells can. We sauna almost every night for at least half an hour because it takes at least 15 minutes before we can sweat,” Ryan Sternagel said. 

He adds, “There are a lot of different alternative treatments and different theories of cancer. So you want to be addressing all of those theories and system of the body.”

I agree with the effectiveness of saunas.  Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was on my show recently where he explained the benefits of sweating and taking a cooling shower after the sauna to rise out the toxins.

Incidentally, Ryan Sternagel also revealed that his sauna unit is also from Sunlighten.  For those interested in getting a sauna, you can get $150 discount just by mentioning My Kid Cures Cancer upon purchase. 

Cause Of Ryder’s Cancer

Cancer is caused by many factors. In fact, a past guest of mine, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, said during his interview in episode 136 that all cancer is from fungus.

In Ryder’s case, Teddy Sternagel believes that being so stressed from work while she was pregnant played a significant factor. She handled it poorly, and she hardly got any exercise.

Teddy Sternagel also believes that being around wi-fi and so many gadgets as well as being in a toxic environment has adverse effects. That is why she advises pregnant women to make sure they get enough exercise, relax, eat right and make sure to detox once in a while.

Extra Resources

The My Kid Cures Cancer website is an excellent resource for alternative treatments for kids who have cancer.  The Sternagels have taken the initiative to enumerate a complete and comprehensive list on the My Kid Cures Cancer website containing supplements, essential oils, anti-cancer products, and cancer-fighting tools that helped Ryder recover.

Aside from the My Kid Cures Cancer website, the Sternagels also have a podcast. Listeners can tune in to learn more about their journey as well as learn several ways of living a healthy, cancer-free life.

Additional Tips

The Sternagels also provided the following tips to help may sure your stays in tip-top shape:

Have a prep day. One day each week where you set aside a couple of hours. Start a few jars of sprouts. Just start fermenting something. Make a huge batch of juice and freeze half of it. And make a big healthy dip for veggies. Take stock of your supplements, fill capsules. Fill your pantry and order dry goods (better selection and prices online). Plan out meals and make a shopping list for produce. Make it a family event and have kids hands on. Incorporate hot and cold into your whole family’s life. Do contrast showers for yourself and your kids. Get a sauna. Go outside in the cold in minimal clothes. Do ice baths. Make it a fun thing. Have proper light at proper times. Get red light bulbs for your lamps and turn them on and overhead lights off when the sun goes down. Get blue blocking glasses for screen time. Again, make it fun for the family. Ryder In Remission

Ryder is currently in remission. After stopping chemotherapy, he takes scans every three months. It’s a wait-and-see approach. 

“You don’t necessarily have to have all the answers and be the expert in every different category. There’s a lot of experts in a lot of different things, but you’re the only expert in your kid as a whole,” said Ryan Sternagel. 

Teddy Sternagel adds, “We as parents have an intuitive gift. It’s there for a reason, and you just have to follow it.” 

Bio

Ryan and Teddy Sternagel started My Kid Cures Cancer one year after their son Ryder was diagnosed in 2014 with stage four neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer of the nervous system.

Wanting to do everything they could for their son The Sternagels dove deep into integrative research and as a result, today Ryder is a happy, healthy little boy. 

Early on in the journey, however, it had become apparent that practically no information of this kind existed written in a way that parents could understand if and how it would apply to their children. 

After consulting with doctors and health experts all over the world, and a whole lot of trial and error, My Kid Cures Cancer was born to make finding this information accessible to other parents that need it. 

Through its videos, podcast and in-depth articles, My Kid Cures Cancer provides parents with information both on integrative approaches to cancer treatment for those that need it and how to make sure cancer never afflicts their family in the first place for everyone else. 

With his incredible attitude and willingness to eat the healthiest of foods and take as many supplements as Ryan and Teddy hand him, Ryder now inspires children all over the world to take their health seriously. “If Ryder can do it, so can I!”

Sustainability Of Plant-Based Nutrition

http://learntruehealth.com/sustainability-o…-based-nutrition/

Sustainability of plant-based nutrition is a serious matter that we should look into. For the sake of our health, the planet and animal welfare, it's about time we take control.  To explain more about why we should take action towards sustainability of plant-based nutrition, Sharon Palmer is back on the show for the second time around.

I also strongly recommend listeners to check out my episode with Sharon Palmer on episode 197. She revealed a lot of things you need to know about a plant-based diet.

General Perceptions

My husband and I have been trying a plant-based diet for almost three months now. I eat chicken sometimes, but other than that, I make a conscious effort to eat organic produce most of the time.

Sharon Palmer says a lot of people don't realize that there are a lot of delicious ways to eat a plant-based diet. But most of the time, people think they're going to be missing out on something.

"Primates are vegans. We are similar to them. Eating a plant-based diet makes cholesterol and glucose drop," explains Sharon Palmer. "Whole plant food is so satisfying and delicious. Plus, your body will be flooded with nutrients that benefit in so many ways."

Sharon Palmer also assures that experiencing hunger, in the beginning, is normal. Because a plant-based diet is so dense in nutrients but low in energy or calories. It is also low in fat naturally. Usually, it takes time easing into the diet, but people eventually get used to it.

I was initially worried where I would get my protein requirement in a plant-based diet. But apparently, 18 grams of protein equals one cup of legumes. I was then more than willing to dive into the diet because I love legumes!

Major Problems

Some of the significant problems we have on sustainability are waste management, air pollution, water pollution and soil pollution due to extensive farming and modern animal agriculture. According to Sharon Palmer, all these are detrimental to the environment.

"From an environmental standpoint, they concentrate all the manure. In effect, the manure accumulates in lagoons and storage tanks," said Sharon Palmer.

In a past episode, Dr. Mark Hyman said, when farmers pay more attention to the health of the soil, that is when we get healthy crops. And that will ultimately sustain our health.

Soil plays a big factor in all this.  Part of the equation is the state of biodynamic farming, allowing the animals to walk on the fields during offseason and enable their manure to be stomped into the ground naturally. Studies have shown that biodynamic farms have a higher yield of produce than those produced with a bunch of chemicals.

"A lot of times we think the soil is just dirt. But soil is living and breathing. We are so interested in our gut microbiome now, but the soil has a microbiome," Sharon Palmer explains. "It is enriched with all of these organisms that help decay the organic matter and contribute nutrients to the soil. Modern agriculture treats soil as an inert substance." 

She adds, "But at the same time, this compost has all the things like manure and compost. Part of our natural environment has all the things needed regarding nutrients in the soil, and it breaks down slowly, adding organic materials to the soil."

Present Focus

Sharon Palmer's primary focus on sustainability is looking at the food system rather than focusing on micro-agriculture. She is also currently learning about biodynamics and regenerative agriculture to restore the soil and looking into food policies, food systems, and security.

"Sustainability goes beyond just the environment. A lot of people think of the environment as the only aspect of sustainability," said Sharon Palmer. "Sustainability means we want the food system to move beyond and be available for future generations. That means healthful, affordable food that everybody has access to." 

She adds, "Just because people who can afford it can go to the farmers market and buy organic produce, that doesn't mean it's available to everyone. It involves things like economics, society, and community."

How We Grow Our Food

Sharon Palmer also shares that her plant-based nutrition matches her work as a journalist and speaker for nutrition. According to her, the healthcare professional world has a lack of understanding of the food system.

"We're so focused on nutrients. Sometimes, we don't take it all the way back to the soil and how we're growing our food," Sharon Palmer said. "It is intriguing that crops we are eating today have zero nutrients than crops grown 50 years ago."

Sharon Palmer says we change our varieties so much, that when we buy our orange carrots, supermarkets and nature apparently produces many other types. Often, the crop varieties we have now have much lower nutrients than their ancient relatives. Apparently, this is because we bred the nutrients out of these vegetables.

Secondly, Sharon Palmer says it takes two weeks after harvest for us to get our produce at the supermarket. And we know produce loses nutrients daily after being picked.

Lastly, evidence shows that climate change is changing the nutrient value of our vegetables. And because temperatures are rising, it changes the actual composition of our crops.

This is why Sharon Palmer recommends eating freshly harvested produce as much as possible. It also helps if we could grow our food and eat more varieties.

Impact Of Pesticides

Sharon Palmer says that research has shown farming communities have the highest risk of adverse effects of pesticides because farmers breathe the air and live on the farm. This is one of the reasons why Sharon Palmer supports organic agriculture.

Personally, my interview with Dr. Stephanie Seneff on episode 89 was such an eye-opener. In the episode, she revealed the link between glyphosate and autism. Glyphosate is a chelator. It binds to heavy metals, but it also releases heavy metals once the agent changes pH.  The pH changes when fluids in our body change.

"Everybody knew that glyphosate wouldn't work anymore. Nature has a way of evolving," said Sharon Palmer. "We have to look at the next herbicide that they are using, to see what the implications are. California has been aggressive in seeing the risks of glyphosate."

What We Can Do

Sharon Palmer says the United States has one of the cheapest food supplies in the world. Because when you look at the percentage of our income, it goes to food. But then we're so used to buying cheap food. And it's hard to get people to pay more to for food that has a higher quality. 

"Americans eat a lot of food. There's an opportunity to eat more of what we need every day and not waste so much. We waste 40% of our food so must learn to put more value in food," Sharon Palmer said. "A lot of people don't realize that we have a lot of programs in farmers markets to connect people and make them eat more healthy produce."

I'm planning to grow my vegetables in my garden and share it with friends and family as well as donate to my community's local food bank. It is essential to create a sense of unity in the community by having every family pitch in to do their part and start their garden, too.

Extra lands on church grounds and schools can also be converted into vegetable gardens for the benefit of the community. Sharon Palmer shares that there are already a lot of schools around the country trying to educate students through growing vegetables on school grounds. 

"The movement is already happening. We have to expose it to people before we lose connection with our soil. I also think that if you grow your food, you also value it more because you spend a lot of time nourishing it," said Sharon Palmer.

Changing Our Diet

Sharon Palmer reveals that Americans are the top meat eaters in the world. Overeating meat is not suitable for health, and it is advisable to cut your meat consumption in half. Just think of what it can do for animal welfare, your health and also the planet.

To ease into the transition to a plant-based diet, try avoiding meat once a week. Start thinking about your plate differently. In fact, my past guest, Dr. Mark Hyman recommended to make meat a condiment.

There's a vegan burger recipe I have which I make with quinoa, chickpeas, rice cauliflower and avocado. Then I wrap in uncooked purple cabbage and add a little taco seasoning. My family loves it, and I suggest you should try this easy recipe, too. The taste takes a little getting used to, but it's delicious!

On the other hand, Sharon Palmer's favorite breakfast is oatmeal porridge with whatever fruits in season, flax seeds and walnuts with no sugar. It's an easy recipe and very healthy for the body.

"Research shows that you can train your taste buds and gradually reduce preference level for sweet and salty," Sharon Palmer said.

Sharon Palmer's Books

There's so much to learn about the plant-based diet. According to Sharon Palmer, her book, Plant-Powered Diet is the bible of plant-based eating. There are a lot of tips on how to choose food like whole grains and how many vegetables to eat every day.

Her other book, Plant-Powered For Life, is a straightforward approach to anything from the plant-based diet.  The book also contains a lot of recipes that's so easy to do and delicious so check it out.

Diet Myths 

http://learntruehealth.com/diet-myths/

Diet myths deter most people from going in the right direction. Whether it be for weight loss or reversing illnesses, knowing what diet myths that aren’t true can ultimately guide us to eating right. Dr. Mark Hyman is a former mentor of mine who will help bust several diet myths in today’s episode.

Growing Up Years

Dr. Mark Hyman grew up in Spain, and he recalls his mother loved shopping at the market every day for fresh food. His mother also tended her garden at home and always stressed the need to buy fresh and eat fresh.

As he grew older, Dr. Mark Hyman chanced upon a book written by Roger Williams called Nutrition Against Disease. That book influenced him to lead a healthy lifestyle until he became a yoga teacher apart from teaching health and becoming a vegetarian.

“I’m 58 years old now. I look at my body 30 or 40 years ago when I first became a vegetarian. I was a scrawny thing with no muscle mass,” recalls Dr. Mark Hyman. “And I am now exercising far less. But changing my diet to more high fat, low starch diet, with adequate amounts of good quality protein. And I am far more muscular and fit than when I was 20 years old.”

Food As Medicine

Dr. Mark Hyman remembers that he got sick from mercury poisoning in China years ago.  He discovered a whole new world in functional medicine because of his illness. Food was the primary medicine to cure his condition. Dr. Mark Hyman food is a drug because it acts faster and cheaper than most drugs.

“There have been so many additives added to food over the last hundred years, almost  2,000 additives in our food. Very few have been tested adequately and were passed by the FDA as safe until we learn that they’re not,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.

Dr. Mark Hyman, there’s so many examples of additives like transfat. It is a part of our diet that has never been proven to be safe.

“There’s a lot of things in our food that we think is healthy.  A lot of health food store products have thickeners that cause leaky gut, toxic plastic containers, and all kinds of food additives,” Dr. Mark Hyman revealed. “It can cause autism, neurodevelopmental issues, and psychiatric problems. Artificial sweeteners can also cause weight gain, diabetes and damage the gut microbiome.” 

Finding The Right Diet

I currently practice a keto and paleo diet. This is because my Naturopath found our I had elevated cardiovascular markers and my blood work was not going in the right direction.

It’s tricky finding the right diet that works. Dr. Mark Hyman says that lowering meat intake is a great starting point as well as portion control. Busting diet myths has been his expertise for the longest time.

Institute For Integrative Nutrition

Incidentally, when I was part of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s year-long health coach training program, Dr. Mark Hyman was one of my teachers. To those who want to become a health coach or merely increase your knowledge of health and nutrition, do sign up at IIN. Also, mention Learn True Health to avail of the special student rate.

Sunlighten Sauna

Like I have mentioned in a past episode, I have been losing weight and getting rid of the toxins in my body by using my Sunlighten sauna. Dr. Mark Hyman is also an owner of a sauna unit and attests to the health benefits of doing saunas every day.

I highly recommend the sauna company since they also provide a fantastic financing payment option.  They offer free shipping which is valued at $600, and they also offer $100 discount on sauna accessories.

What The Heck Should We Eat Book

Dr. Mark Hyman says we have to look more comprehensively at our diet. In his book, Dr. Mark Hyman writes about diet myths and what science shows.

Mostly, his book does more than just busting diet myths. It is an eater’s guide to food in the 21st century. The book teaches you how to eat food and what brand is good for your health, planet, climate, economy, helping poverty and violence and providing educational disparity. Dr. Mark Hyman illustrates that food is at the center of all those situations.

Statistics Don’t Lie

Dr. Mark Hyman explains that a ketogenic diet contains 70 percent fat. It is extremely high fat and very low carb diet. The ketogenic diet reverses diabetes of over 60% of people suffering from the disease, 4% got out of medication and insulin.

“My body composition changed when I changed to higher fat diet, and eating lots of protein, vegetables and lots of fat. My muscle mass increased even if I was not exercising as much,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.

Effects On the Environment

Dr. Mark Hyman says that one of the issues of the environmental movement is to eat less meat. But what meat are we eating? If it is grass-fed meat, Dr. Mark Hyman says it’s a whole different issue.

Dr. Mark Hyman also mentions that there’s a book called Kiss the Ground by Josh Tickell. It’s an amazing story all about the soil. Because soil is the key to our health in so many ways. 

“The carbon from the environment gets sequestered or held in the soil. Soil erosion and other negative effects on the soil are happening because of how we grow food. Hence, properly grazing animals can help the soil regenerate,” said Dr. Mark Hyman. 

Importance Of Fiber

Dr. Mark Hyman says fiber is important because it fertilizes the good bacteria in the gut. He also says that our microbiome is essential.

“Because when we feed our microbiome junk food, they turn into junky bacteria. They also produce some nasty chemicals. When we feed them a lot of fiber, there’s a huge difference in the health of the microbiome,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.

Studies have shown that Americans only eat an average of 8 to 15 grams of fiber a day. Typically, 50 grams is a right amount to target aside from drinking a lot of water.

Dangers Of Sugar And Flour

Dr. Mark Hyman reveals that half of Americans have pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Currently, 90% are not diagnosed, and 70% of Americans are overweight.

“We are biologically designed to crave and love sugar because it helps us store fat for the winter. If we could eat anything that’s starchy, has carbs, sugar or honey, we will put on weight right away. And that’s a good thing from an evolutionary point of view,” said Dr. Mark Hyman. 

But he also adds,”Now in our era, we have 152 pounds of sugar and 133 pounds of flour which is worse than sugar. We are actually in a toxic situation. Because Flour has a higher glycemic index than sugar.”

Busting More Diet Myths

Dr. Mark Hyman says the standard advice of eating less and exercising more to lose weight is the biggest lie. He says it’s about the quality of the calories you eat, not the amount.

“If you focus on what you’re eating and not how much, you will naturally do the right thing. So when you can’t exercise your way out of a bad diet, you have to make sure that you’re eating the right food,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.

Dr. Mark Hyman also says that people who eat a high glycemic diet have a higher risk of dementia. So we should all be eating an extremely low glycemic diet.

He explains that people who eat gluten do tiny microscopic damage to their gut which leads to inflammation. Ultimately, it breaks the linkages between our cells and our intestines will become loose, also known as leaky gut. 

“If you know how to work your biology, you can be fully satisfied, happy and energetic with your diet. You don’t have to deprive yourself. Use science rather than willpower to fix your biology,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.

To know more about diet-related topics, I recommend listening to my past episodes with Dr. Caldwell EsselstynDr. Jack Wolfson, and Dr. William Davis.

Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, believes that we all deserve a life of vitality and that we have the potential to create it for ourselves. That’s why he is dedicated to tackling the causes of chronic disease by harnessing the power of Functional Medicine to transform healthcare. Dr. Mark Hyman and his team work every day to empower people, organizations, and communities to heal their bodies and minds, and improve our social and economic resilience.

42. 236 Love Food Again with Registered Dietitian, Eating Disorder Specialist, and Food Behavior Expert Julie Duffy Dillon and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
http://learntruehealth.libsyn.... download (audio/mpeg, 118.56Mb)

Description: Food Peace 

http://learntruehealth.com/food-peace/

Food peace is all about how to love food again. Most of us fear food because we are afraid of gaining weight. But my guest today is registered dietician Julie Duffy Dillon who will break down some steps on how we can achieve food peace.

On A Mission

Julie Duffy Dillon is an eating disorder specialist who helps people with weight issues and helps them attain food peace.  She was a conventionally-trained dietician and generally, it takes people six years of study to do the job.

Getting out of school, Julie Duffy Dillon thought she was more than prepared to help people achieve food peace. After a few years, she realized that most people were not able to lose weight and the tools she had for food peace was missing the point.

“I felt there was another dynamics, so I quit and got a degree in mental health counseling. Then I started researching diets,” said Julie Duffy Dillon. “No diet will help you go long-term. Diets lead to weight regain. It led to me getting into knowing how eating disorders happen.”

Busting Myths

According to Julie Duffy Dillon, when we pursue weight loss, we miss health. She says health is also how much power we have in our world. The journey towards food peace comes from finding what works for you and fixing the world’s view of our bodies.

“Many people think they can control all aspects of health. It’s not just about the food we eat or the way we move our body. Stress, poverty, and depression also play a big factor. Outside things determine 75% percent of health,” Julie Dillion said.

Julie Duffy Dillon essentially helps her clients realize that the body has wisdom.  To be able to have food peace, one must learn how to listen to their body and figure out what energizes or depletes them.

PCOS

I have dealt with polycystic ovary syndrome.  It is a condition wherein my hormone levels were affected, but I was able to reverse it through a change of diet and lifestyle.

Julie Duffy Dillon says medical doctors tend to tell their patients they’re not trying hard enough. They usually advise patients to cut food groups and exercise more.  But Julie Duffy Dillon says she has found a way to veer away from diets by practicing self-care.

“I help people find their place of passions. We shouldn’t feel like being tortured by food. Eat enough to be a human to have energy,” said Julie Duffy Dillon. “I help clients pick something sustainable and educate them on how to listen to their body.”

Body Shaming

Shame is a big part of eating disorders, and it deters attaining food peace. According to Julie, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of all mental illnesses, so they’re a big deal.

“I want to do every I can to help prevent it. Shame doesn’t promote health, although it’s something we often lean on. But it’s certainly not something that works to change behavior in the long-term,” said Julie Duffy Dillon.

I had experienced shame when I was younger. My mother would subject me to shame whenever I ate rice or anything unhealthy.  It was my mom’s way of showing she loved me enough to care about my health but emotionally and mentally, it did affect me.

“Unfortunately, when our motivation is fear-based, we don’t tend to make the best decisions. We need to come from genuine love because we live in a world that is not too kind to people of size,” Julie Duffy Dillon said.

Trust Your Body

Julie also stresses the need to teach children to love their bodies and to trust the messages of their body. Society puts too much emphasis on body size, and that leads to more severe problems like eating disorders. And when that happens, food peace fails.

I was concerned about my weight mainly when I was pregnant.  But I learned from my Naturopath that apparently, weight has nothing to do with a healthy pregnancy.  In fact, the primary thing to look out for was blood work, and mine was great!

“I think there’s a manipulation in the diet industry that makes us all freak out when we are 10 or 20 pounds heavier when it’s not as concerning,” said Julie Duffy Dillon 

She also adds, “Speaking for my clients in recovery, positive body weight is important to maintain recovery. It is essential for them not to diet again or else there will be a relapse.” 

Dangers Of Eating Disorders

Julie Duffy Dillon says suicide is a component for some people. She says some people die, but there’s a medical risk associated with it, too. In fact, there used to be a medical category called, “Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified Condition,” which according to Julie Duffy Dillon, the mortality rate was highest in that group. 

“People with the condition usually die in their sleep. There are many facilities now that specialize in nutritional rehabilitation. They are usually on an out-patient level like my program. My rehab program is once a week and ideally, for three to six months,” said Julie Duffy Dillon.

Model Healthy Behavior

Julie Duffy Dillon thinks that sometimes, people want kids to know what’s healthy and not healthy. How kids learn nutrition is interesting.

“When we are younger, we are concrete thinkers. Nutrition and teaching healthy eating is a very abstract, formal and operational type of way of thinking,” explains Julie Duffy Dillon. So when a person is trying to teach moderation or healthy eating to a kid through words, their brain is not going to get it on the same level compared to a grown up.”

So what then is the best way to teach kids? Julie Duffy Dillon says exposure is the best teacher. Exposing kids to gardens allow them to learn agriculture and enable them to see how plants grow and what they taste like.

“It must be a hands-on way of teaching nutrition. Practice model healthy behavior by not talking about bodies unless it is something neutral or positive” said Julie Duffy Dillon.

Tips For Adults

First of all, Julie Duffy Dillon suggests having sufficient knowledge of your history with food. Because sometimes, eating is not just about hunger or being full. She says it’s also a connection to our lineage and culture.

“Know that you can trust your body and know that there’s a pleasure coming from food like cooking or eating,” suggests Julie Duffy Dillon. “Find out what serves you and what helps you feel energized. Your body was born with this innate wisdom to promote health so you can rely on it even if it has been a while.”

Julie Duffy Dillon listed down this very doable 3-step procedure that will ultimately help you achieve food peace:

Permit yourself to eat. You’ve tried diets and know they don’t help long term. What if you experimented with permitting yourself instead? Instead of playing the message “I am a failure for failing my diet,” reframe it to be, “Another diet failed me because none of them work for most people.” You didn’t fail. The diet did. Throw out the scale or smash it with a hammer. Pursuing weight loss predicts more weight gain, isn’t supported by science to promote health and just keeps you from being you.  Love Food Podcast

Julie Duffy Dillon is a Registered Dietitian, Eating Disorder Specialist, and Food Behavior Expert partnering with people on their Food Peace journey.

Learn True Health Special Episode

http://learntruehealth.com/learn-true-health/

Learn True Health is celebrating a special episode since today marks my birthday.  I turned 38 years old today, and I wanted to celebrate by thanking all my loyal listeners.

Different Person

When I started the Learn True Health podcast two years ago, I had no idea it would grow to what it is today. All I wanted was to help as many people as I could, by providing natural alternatives to healing through the experts I invite on the show.

I was an entirely different person two years ago. One example is the fact that organic, gluten-free cupcakes were a temptation hard to resist in the past. But I no longer desired them. On the contrary, I was more excited to have a sprout sandwich for lunch.

The old me two years ago had so many excuses to eat forbidden treats. But now I get excited about eating vegetables and nourishing my cells. I was just not on that unhealthy scale anymore. 

Heartwarming Emails

The Learn True Health podcast motivates me to be healthy.  Over time, my body got used to craving that wonderful feeling of being healthy.  I learned to apply tools to make myself healthier emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically, energetically.

Along with all of you listeners, I have learned so much from the guests I invite, as well as the listeners who have taken time to write to me. It is indeed heartwarming to receive emails saying my podcast has made a significant difference in your lives.

Healing Journey

One email narrated how she was sick and bed-ridden for two years. She lost her job, her husband, her self-respect, and her health seemed hopeless because doctors couldn’t find the cause of her illness.

The only thing she could do was listen to my Learn True Health podcast and contacted a doctor that I guested on the show.  She later found out she had a severe case of SIBO or small intestinal bacteria overgrowth.

That listener is currently slowly getting better and thanked me for helping her get her life back. Getting that email truly touched my heart. Helping people know the benefits of healing naturally is the reason why I started this podcast.

Career Shifts

I also have had some listeners write to me saying I have influenced them to become natural healing health coaches. Some even almost became medical doctors but decided to become a Naturopath because of my Learn True Health podcast.

One listener wrote, “I want to acknowledge your amazing podcast. Because I discovered it a couple of months ago and I’m hooked. I’m just beginning my journey of Holistic Health, and I’m so grateful to have your podcast to help lead the way.”

Resource For Multiple Illnesses

A lot of listeners struggle with multiple health problems like a migraine, depression, anxiety and overweight issues. I am thrilled when they tell me that my Learn True Health podcast motivated them to change their diet and it resulted in positive transformation and healing.

One other disease that some of my listeners have is Lyme disease. I have guested several experts in past episodes talking extensively on the subject. Contrary to what most people think, Lyme disease can be addressed using natural means.

I interviewed Jen Saltzman on the show several times. And she has shared so many ways on how to reverse Lyme disease. So to anyone who wants to find out how to do that, do check out the episode on the Learn True Health website.

“My boyfriend now takes herbal medication and can’t go a day without them. I want to thank you, even if his hope is pretty much lost. You have brought my hope for him to life,” a listener wrote.

That listener went on to say my show is so well put together which I do find very flattering. I do make it a point to be respectful of the guests I have on the show despite differences in opinions.  

Valuable Guests

I believe allowing my guests to talk as much as they want without interruptions enables them to dive into explaining a subject thoroughly. It has been really fortunate for me to be able to bring so many respected health experts on the show. Some charge as much as $400 an hour just for consultations yet they are willing to share so much knowledge on my show for free!

I really pray that through my Learn True Health podcast, listeners would be able to find the Holistic answers they are looking for. The most significant thing I want people to have is hope because I have been there. I was a sick person, to the point that doctors thought I was crazy. Holistic medicine brought me back to life by taking supplements, changing my diet and lifestyle, and adopting a healthy mindset.

Adopting A Plant-Based Diet

I think the secret to knowing what health options work for you is the willingness to practice and try different things. Do try things long enough to give it a chance to work.

My husband and I started a plant-based diet back in January. It took time to get used to having a diet that’s primarily legumes, nuts, seeds, and gluten free-grains. But I can’t believe how good I feel!

Ultimately, it’s really about how you feel. Your body in five years might say it wants meat again. So you have to listen. Because your body is going to have different requirements for different stages of life. Bottomline, it’s ok to shift diets while listening to symptoms or the language of your body.

I used to have chronic adrenal fatigue, PCOS, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. But I cured all of those through a change in diet, lifestyle, and taking supplements. It’s been seven years and time flies so fast!

Furthermore, when I was 19 years old, medical doctors told me I would never have kids. I eventually married, and six years into my marriage, I finally conceived! I got pregnant with 100% Natural medicine and food. Food healed my body and taking supplements nudged me in the right direction.  Fast forward today, my baby boy is turning three years old soon.

It honestly baffles me why medical doctors are not taught much about nutrition in medical school.  It didn’t take rocket science to figure out that taking minerals from our food can make us ill. Drugs merely manage or mask symptoms, but it’s not a cure. Poor diet causes most illnesses. So it’s just logical that the cure also lies in the food you eat. 

Weight Problem

I have been struggling with weight issues despite being diligent with diets.  The pounds would come off, but after 15 to 20 pounds, it would come to a halt.  I would then get really over toxic to the point that my eyes would burn, I’d have a sore throat, I could taste metal in my mouth, and body would start smelling like garbage.

But then a Naturopath, Dr. Megan Saunders, advised me to get into a sauna since it looked like my liver was getting overburdened as I lost weight. Apparently, even if you’re just 10 pounds overweight, your body will take in environmental toxins. This is because when there is more fat to store, the more susceptible you are to absorb more toxins.

There are many factors why my body was collecting all these toxins.  Aside from the environment, eating junk food made my body suffer.  And sweating is one way of removing toxins from your body.

A past guest of mine, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also affirms the benefits of sweating out heavy metals. He has said that the first five minutes, we sweat out 95% of toxins from our body. So five minutes of sweating is ten times the equivalent of 24 hours of peeing.

The Benefit Of Saunas

It finally made sense. More things happen when you sweat longer. I realize I needed to support my body in detoxification while I healthily lose weight.

One way to detoxify was through a daily habit of getting into a sauna.  I recently got a portable Sunlighten sauna, which incidentally is owned by Dr. Mark Hyman who will be in one of my future episodes.

Furthermore, I bagged a great deal for all you listeners! The sauna company offers free shipping to Learn True Health listeners which is a $600 value. Plus a $100 off on accessories.

Saunas are also safe and healthy for children because it boosts the immune system.  The temperature is bearable at 120 degrees. One minute per age is the recommended sauna duration. For example, one minute for a year old child, two minutes for a two-year-old, and so forth.   

Personal Progress

I can’t tell you enough how I love my wooden sauna! I have been using it regularly, and all my back muscles feel so relaxed.  I’m now able to lose weight without any over toxicity, and I have lost seven pounds.

I am also taking chlorella by ENERGYbits, whose creator Catharine Arnston was on my show recently.  Listeners can avail of a 20% discount by putting in the LTH code upon checkout on the ENERGYbits website.

Rounding it up, a change in diet, getting enough water and exercise, enjoying my loved ones, taking chlorella and getting saunas has made me feel better and healthier!

Algae 

http://learntruehealth.com/algae/

Algae is considered a superfood because it is not processed and is packed with minerals, vitamins, and amino acids.  It also has antioxidants which are why my guest today, Catharine Arnston is such a strong advocate for educating people about the benefits of algae.

Discovering Algae

Catharine Arnston is Canadian but currently lives in the United States. She discovered the benefits of algae when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer ten years ago.

Upon the advice of her sister’s oncologist, Catharine Arnston’s sister had to change to an alkaline diet to help her healing. So her diet was primarily green tea, green vegetables and had to eliminate acidic foods.

Fast forward a decade later, Catharine Arnston’s sister celebrated ten years free of cancer this year. This whole experience made Catharine Arnston decide to give up her corporate career of 25 years to help people.

Making A Difference

Catharine Arnston eventually pursued further studies at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition. After graduation, she put up a nutrition counseling company wherein she offered a curriculum teaching people how to eat healthy greens. Catharine Arnston also gave free workshops for corporations and hospitals for almost a year, trying to convince people to eat more greens.

Catharine Arnston primary goal was to find a hassle-free way for people to digest more greens. During her research in 2010, she suddenly thought of algae tablets. Surveys showed that her friends were willing to take algae tablets, so the venture looked very promising. 

Origin Of Algae

According to Catharine Arnston, algae has been used for hundreds of years. Documented for approximately the past 50 years, it is the most studied food in the world and has been known to improve health aspects of mental acuity and athletic performance.

“Algae is the very first plant life on earth three and a half billion years ago and they have fossils to prove it. It has been around three or four years longer than we have,” said Catharine Arnston. “So there’s got to be something special about something on earth that has existed four times longer than we have. That’s why I feel blessed to be to one to explain to people the importance of algae.”

Quality Of Products

The algae that Catharine Arnston uses for her products is grown in Taiwan. Taiwan is world-renowned to have the highest quality algae and the highest quality controls in place because it is such a significant crop. All the other algae are grown in Japan, China, India, and a small amount in Hawaii.

Apparently, algae have different attributes, flavors, and components like wine. Catharine Arnston says that the water they use for their products comes from a mountain. She also assures that their water is very clean since it is triple-filtered.

“The company that is growing algae for us has been growing algae for 50 years. They have a GMP certification, an ISO 9000 certification, and is certified organic,” said Catharine Arnston. “The company has an Asian certification. Getting U.S. certification is complicated because it is not in America. We also have a 3rd party FDA lab here in the United States, where we test every batch.”

Catharine Arnston proudly adds that they are by far, the only algae in America that are endorsed by doctors. Laboratory tests that show there is no metal and pesticides in Catharine Arnston’s ENERGYbits products. They are also the only company wherein the Chlorella products contain no lead.

Competitive Industry

Catharine Arnston attests that algae products are a multi-billion dollar industry in Asia. She says it is almost as big as the beef industry in the United States. But in making algae products mainstream, people have misconceptions about what algae are.

“Nobody knows about it because it is food. It’s no different than broccoli. Biotech and pharma companies were interested in promoting algae because there’s no patent. You can’t patent broccoli or algae because it is just a vegetable,” said Catharine Arnston.

Catharine Arnston further reveals that the companies selling algae in the United States tend to be just the same as the companies selling algae in Asia. Apparently, only the packaging is different.

“Most of the product comes from China, and there’s insufficient quality control. So nobody knew for sure what they’re putting in their bodies. And to think they’re supposed to be taking this to improve their health,” Catharine Arnston said. 

She adds,”Most chlorella products contain lead but not ours. There’s great uncertainty on who to trust. I had to be sure ours is the highest quality. So I started this journey after helping my sister.”

Catharine Arnston also shares that the statistics of cancer and heart disease show that 98% of chronic illnesses are lifestyle and diet-related. That is why she is trying to help people understand how to be healthy, using the gifts from Mother Nature. Catharine Arnston’s goal is also to teach people how to differentiate the different kinds of algae, which ones are good for us and which algae to use for different purposes.

Spirulina Algae

There are about 15 strains of algae, and it is part of the seaweed family. But seaweed is grown in the ocean and does not have the same nutrients. In a category called algae, the only two that are produced as crops are spirulina and chlorella.

Spirulina is known as the earth’s very first plant life. It is a blue-green algae wherein the blue color comes from a pigment called phycocyanin.

“The blue pigment has incredible healing properties. One of which is that it stops cancer. It stops the growth of blood vessels to tumors or cancers and is called anti-angiogenesis,” explains Catharine Arnston. “Angiogenesis is when blood vessels are grown to support a tumor or cancer.”

She adds,”There are certain foods and different things that have anti-angiogenesis properties that stop the growth of blood vessels. And the blue phycocyanin in spirulina is one of those things.” 

Benefits Of Spirulina

Catharine Arnston says we 99.9% can get all the protein within 15 minutes and literally within seconds if we chew spirulina. This is because all the protein in Spirulina is already in an amino acid form. And because there is nothing left for our body to break it down, it is instantly absorbable because it is technically a bacteria.

“Spirulina is not a detoxifier. It is a cleanser. In Japan, when babies are born, they cannot digest mothers milk and would die otherwise. The only thing that keeps them alive is spirulina in water,” shares Catharine Arnston. “During my research, I looked at the nutrient profile and the amino acid profile of mother’s milk colostrum. It has the same nutrient profile as spirulina.”

Chlorella

On the other hand, chlorella does not have the blue pigment. It is a plant that contains the highest chlorophyll in the world. Chlorophyll is good for cleansing and it is also very healing. 

“Most pigments and antioxidants are water-based. Chlorophyll is one of the few fat-based pigments and antioxidants,” Catharine Arnston said. “Our cells need fat. That’s what Omega 3 does. It helps heal the cell. So now, nutrients can easily flow into the cell, and toxins can easily flow out of the cell. That’s one of the benefits of chlorophyll.” 

She adds, “It aids the health of the cell. If the cell wall and cells are healthy, the immune system will be healthy, and the mitochondria will be healthy. Everything will work a lot better.”

Catharine Arnston also says only 10% chlorophyll gets absorbed in the stomach. The rest of the Chlorophyll stays in our gut and moves into our entire digestive tract, through the liver, and down our colon. It cleans up garbage in our body as it goes along and heals all the cell walls.

Importance of Vitamin K2

Most heart attacks and heart diseases are not caused by cholesterol. According to Catharine Arnston, it is caused by inflammation and hardening of the arteries because of too much calcium in arteries.

“The arteries become brittle and not flexible. In effect, blood can’t flow and can cause high blood pressure. And the only thing that pulls this excess calcium out is vitamin K2,” said Catharine Arnston. “The only place you can get vitamin k2 is either grass-fed animal protein, fermented foods, and chlorella. If you take vitamin K2, your body will take out all that excess calcium that’s hardening your arteries and moves into your bones or teeth.”

I can vouch for what Catharine Arnston said. I had Dr. Carolyn Dean on episode 227 of my show recently, and she said that our body does need vitamin K2 and magnesium. This is to help deposit calcium and other minerals into our bones.

Another excellent reference was Dr. Weston A. Price’s discovery a long time ago. In his research, Dr. Weston A. Price discovered indigenous cultures had great teeth good healthy bacteria in their mouths because vitamin K2 was plentiful in their gut and diet.

For added reference on chlorella, I’m inviting my listeners to check out my interview with Dr. Dietrich Kinghardt on episode 218

Energybits Products

Catharine Arnston has a fantastic line of products called ENERGYbits, RECOVERYbits, SKINNYbits, and VITALITYbits. All her products are 100% organically grown, non-GMO spirulina and chlorella algae tablets.

“These are complete food-based replacements for multivitamins. They are eco-friendly and a natural source of omega food,” assures Catharine Arnston.

To celebrate the second anniversary of the Learn True Health, we have a special treat for all the listeners to Learn True Health.  Upon ordering any of the products on Catharine Arnston’s website, don’t forget to enter the LTH coupon code to avail of the 20% discount upon checkout.

Bio

Catharine Arnston has a thirty-year career as an international Attache for the Canadian and British Governments, publisher of an international magazine and Founder of three startups. But in 2009 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist to change her diet to an alkaline one because it would help her heal, Catharine Arnston put her career on hold to help her sister. 

In the process, she discovered algae, the most alkaline, nutrient-dense plant in the world that no one seemed to know about. Catharine Arnston knew algae would be a game changer for the world if she could just help Americans understand it. Because of that, ENERGYbits was born.

Reversing Diabetes

http://learntruehealth.com/reversing-diabetes

Reversing Diabetes Through Nutrition

Reversing diabetes naturally through nutrition is something people should look into. Robby Barbaro, my guest today, attests that the risks are lower and it has been proven effective.

I found Robby Barbaro because of the 9-day I Thrive series. I highly recommend watching the series because it has 55 doctors and experts, who talk about reversing diabetes and heart disease, as well as tips on how to lose weight. For more information, link to www.learntruehealth.com/ithrive.

Diagnosed With Type 1 Diabetes

Robby Barbaro’s journey to reversing diabetes started when he was first diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 12 years old. He’s 29 years old now, so it has been 17 years since he has been living with diabetes.

Incidentally, it was Robby Barbaro’s older brother who was first diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Soon after, Robby Barbaro complained that he noticed being thirsty with the urge to urinate all the time.  Upon checking his sugar levels with his brother’s glucometer, it was well over 400 which was not a good sign.

Going to the doctor to get an official diagnosis, Robby Barbaro went through tests to measure his carbs and insulin intake.  And because he lived in Minnesota that time, they had the tests done at the world-famous Mayo Clinic.

Tests confirmed he had Type 1 diabetes. Looking back, Robby Barbaro recalls it was unusual that such a famous clinic didn’t tell him that nutrition could help in reversing diabetes.  

Diet Shift

Robby Barbaro was a competitive tennis player. He says the sport helped keep his Type 1 diabetes under control. In addition to that, he eventually made some dietary changes and took supplements.

But what changed his whole perception in reversing diabetes is when he moved to Florida and chanced upon a book that he saw at Barnes and Noble. Kevin Trudeau’s Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About book was popular that time. According to Robby Barbaro, the book contained one sentence that planted a seed in his mind that he could use nutrition in reversing diabetes.

Typical Diet

“I’ve been eating nothing but fruits and veggies for 11 years. Not cooked but rather raw and low fat, plant-based whole foods,” said Robby Barbaro. “Then I came across the Weston A. Price foundation which is a step in right direction.”

Eventually, Robby Barbaro learned not to eat processed foods and was eating grass-fed beef. During college, he was also a part of a website community discussing diets when somebody suggested watching this animal rights movie. That movie had a significant impact on Robby Barbaro.

“That’s how I got to the plant-based world. I started a coaching program wherein the first week was eating purely bananas. It was a profound experience,” shares Robby Barbaro. 

He adds, “I was floored by my insulin sensitivity just by eating bananas. Then I began to adopt a low-fat diet. The next week I had bananas and lettuce. It was the beginning of a plant based-diet.”

Robby Barbaro reveals that eating a plant-based diet doesn’t deprive you of nutrients. He gets his calories and energy from fruit and minerals from greens and non-starchy vegetables like zucchini, carrots, arugula and many more. He has also erased gluten from his diet.

“I felt good, my skin cleared, and allergies are gone. Every time you eat well, you are nourishing every single cell,” Robby Barbaro said. 

Importance Of Insulin

Robby Barbaro and his Mastering Diabetes coaching partner Cyrus Khambatta both have Type 1 diabetes, and insulin is what keeps them alive. According to Robby Barbaro, the whole teaching point of insulin not being the enemy is something essential to the Mastering Diabetes program.

My grandmother passed away at the age of 77 in 1987. Incidentally, she also had Type 1 diabetes. And from what I heard, she was one of the earlier receivers of insulin when they were first creating it. Her diet was primarily steamed vegetables, but she made sure to collect the juice and drink it since all the minerals were in there.

“We have made a lot of progress in treating Type 1 diabetes. Today we have glucose monitors, the needles are smaller, and it’s an overall more sanitary experience,” said Robby Barbaro.

Insulin Resistance

Robby Barbaro says that the cause of pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance. But for people with Type 1 diabetes, insulin resistance is still a significant factor even if it is not the cause of their condition. 

“Insulin resistance is the precursor to so many other conditions. The number one killer of all people living with diabetes is heart disease. So it’s vital to optimize one’s insulin sensitivity,” said Robby Barbaro.

And how do we know if we’re insulin insensitive? With Type 1 diabetes, it is very easy to assess that. The following determining factors are:

How many units of insulin we’re injecting Total carb consumption Blood glucose testing  Difference Between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes

Robby Barbaro explains that for Type 1 diabetes, you have to make sure you are injecting about the same amount of insulin your pancreas would have normally secreted before it stopped producing its insulin.

“The key thing is to get to the appropriate amount.  The general ballpark number is measured by taking your weight, which is about .6 per kilogram of body weight. That’s a good place to be. If you’re more active, you can get closer to .3 or .4 units,” Robby Barbaro said.

As for those with Type 2 diabetes and taking no medication, Robby Barbaro suggests looking at your fasting blood glucose number. You also have to know the total carb intake you’re consuming. 

“So if you have 200 to 300 carbs per day and your blood glucose is in range, then that’s a good sign that your body is insulin sensitive. Anything opposite that is a sign that you’re becoming pre-diabetic,” said Robby Barbaro.

Testing Yourself

The best way to check your sugar levels is by using a glucometer. Ideally, you should do the test upon waking up and provided you have not eaten for the past 12 hours.

“A level between 70 to 99 is good. If you are 100 to 126, that’s pre-diabetic. And anything that’s 127 and above is a full-on diabetic,” said Robby Barbaro.

Robby Barbaro also reveals that the biggest problem is the food that people are eating. Because eating more meats and dairy is not suitable for long-term health.

“When your blood glucose is out of control, it has a dramatic impact on our mood, behavior and also on our mental clarity. But it is all the more motivation and reason to fix it,” said Robby Barbaro.

Coaching Program

Mastering Diabetes is a program wherein Robby Barbaro and his partner Cyrus Khambatta teach people how to minimize and eliminate medication. But Robby Barbaro also makes it clear that they have a lot of respect for doctors. And aren’t against doctors or the pharma industry in some respect.

Robby Barbaro offers group and private coaching.  To reach out to more people, the programs are now offered at a more affordable rate of $29 per month. He is proud to share that they have seen many success stories in as fast as four days by just altering diets.

For people suffering from Type 1 diabetes, there’s a significant difference of 40 to 60% in four days.  Some people with Type 2 diabetes have even stopped the medication. The diet is served buffet style and is primarily steamed vegetables. 

“The worse thing that can happen is taking too much medication, and we have a team of trained professionals to monitor each person’s progress,” said Robby Barbaro.

Bio

Robby Barbaro is the co-founder of Mastering Diabetes and the founder of Mindful Diabetic. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12 and embraced a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet four years after my diagnosis. 

To this day, adopting this lifestyle has been one of the best decisions of his life, and since that fateful day, Robby Barbaro’s hemoglobin A1c value has never exceeded 6.4%. Robby Barbaro graduated from the University of Florida in 2011 and worked at Forks Over Knives for six years before turning his attention to coaching people with diabetes full time. 

Robby Barbaro enjoys exercising every day, spending time with friends and sharing his lifestyle on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Helping people with diabetes has gone from a desire to a true passion, and he loves inspiring others to achieve excellent health.

Heart Disease 

http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease

Heart disease is one of the major diseases that many people are suffering from. Most people resort to medication but my guest today, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, will teach us how to reverse heart disease through diet. In fact, he has the longest running track record for success.

Early Years

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn was a Yale undergraduate and went to medical school at the Western Reserve University.  He took an internship at the Cleveland Clinic and decided to go into General Surgery. He has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic since 1968. He has also published the most amount of studies over the past 12 years with remarkable results.

After his training, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn went to become an Army surgeon two years after. From the training in Vietnam, he was offered a position in the Department of General Surgery in the Cleveland Clinic.

Career Shift

Halfway through his stint at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn felt increasingly disillusioned. I was doing a lot of surgeries connected with breast cancer and yet he thought he was doing absolutely nothing to the next unsuspecting victims.

“That led me through a bit of global research. In rural Japan in the 1950s, breast cancer was infrequently identified. In the entire nation of Japan in the late 50s, cardiovascular disease was virtually non-existent,” shares Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.  

Twelve-Year Study On Heart Disease

Shortly after, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn embarked on extensive research on everything there is to know about heart disease and how to prevent and reverse it. It was a long process, but ultimately, the study produced significant results on how we can reverse it naturally through diet.

“I was active as a surgeon, and I was not a trained psychologist. For the first five years,  I saw every one of these patients every two weeks,” Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn said. “We checked their weight and blood pressure. We saw significant progress. They lost weight, symptoms disappeared, and we reversed the disease.”

Significant Findings

The study confirmed that coronary artery disease is the leading killer in the United States. But it is rarely found in cultures whose diet primarily include lentils, grains, vegetables, fruit, and legumes. This is why Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn recommends a similar diet to his patients.

“The diet I chose was extracted from those nations where the disease is virtually non-existent like Okinawa in Japan, Euro-China, New Guinea, Central Africa and Northern Mexico. Those countries don’t have the cardiovascular disease because they thrive on whole foods nutrition,” said Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn also says that many experts have agreed that heart disease does not primarily originate from genes nor stress, but rather from nutrition. During the five-year mark of the study, patients who followed a plant-based diet with 10% fat and taking cholesterol-lowering medication showed excellent results. Lipid levels fell, symptoms lessened, and tests showed that their heart disease became stabilized. Some cases even showed a reverse from heart disease.

Revision In Diet

When you have heart disease, it also injures the endothelial lining of the arteries. It turns out that food containing oils, dairy, fish, meat, chicken, sugar, and caffeine deplete mechanisms that protect the endothelium.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn also says that the typical Western diet also decreases the production of nitric oxide.  Nitric oxide is an essential part of the equation because it protects our blood vessels. 

“We have to have a safe and adequate amount of nitric oxide because it protects the wall of the arteries. It protects us from developing high blood pressure and hypertension as well as blockages or plaques,” said Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

Success Rate

Upon hitting the 12-year mark of the study, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn shares that he has gathered enough data to prove that changing to the right kind of diet works. Patients were asked to eliminate oil, dairy products, and all types of meat including chicken and fish.

A lot of patients went back to standard care or entirely did not need medication. The results of the study showed that arrest and reversal therapy stops coronary atherosclerosis. By complementing a plant-based diet with medication, it achieves better results than changing only the diet or combining modest diet changes and medication.

Recommended Diet

First of all, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn recommends cutting out oils and animal products from your diet. He says oils amount to 120 calories per tablespoon and it’s just fat with no mineral and no fiber. Plus, he says fat destroys the endothelium.

“I recommend my patients eat green leafy vegetables six times a day. The amount of vegetables is approximately the size of their fist,” recommends Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. “Then add balsamic vinegar because it has acetic acid. It restores cells responsible for making nitric oxide.” 

Among the vegetables that Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn recommends are: Bok Choy Swiss Chard Kale Collard Greens Beet Greens Mustard Greens Turnip Green Napa Cabbage Brussels Sprouts Broccoli Cauliflower Cilantro Parsley Spinach Arugula Asparagus

He also cautions against taking sugar like Stevia. Apparently, Stevia affects receptors in the brain.

“Eating fruits is okay but not fruit juice. In real fruit, you get fiber. When you separate the juice, the fiber separates from the sugar,” said. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. “I also recommend flax and chia seeds be included in your diet.”

Prevent & Reverse Cookbook

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s staple diet includes oatmeal, raisins, bananas, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. His lunch and dinner would be anything from soups to beans and rice, grains, and vegetables.

For those who would want to try his recommended recipes, I suggest getting his Prevent & Reverse cookbook which is available on his website.  Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn proudly reveals that his diet program is beneficial to everyone regardless of age. In fact, his oldest patient is 95 years old!

“The most severe, strict and extreme diet on the planet today is the one that 97% of Americans are eating every day. That diet is going to guarantee that before they perish, they would have some hideous chronic illness,” said Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. 

Additional Resources

My father died from heart disease, so this subject is close to my heart. For those who want to know more about heart disease, do check out a couple of my past episodes. 

I guested Dr. Jack Wolfson on episode 101.  In the episodes, he talks about how he saw many patients suffering from heart disease and introduced them to natural medicine. Also check out episode 167 with Dr. William Davis who says that having the right diet supports a normal, stable and a healthy blood sugar level.

47. 231 How To Be Healthy Without Willpower, Food Addiction, Overeating, Binging, Obesity, Weight loss, with Ph.D. Psychologist Glenn Livingston and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Willpower 

http://learntruehealth.com/willpower-stop-bingeing/

Willpower to stop bingeing is something a lot of people struggle with.  Whether you plan to eat healthily or currently maintaining your weight, having the willpower to stay on track is a continuous effort. I’m thrilled that my guest, Dr. Glenn Livingston, is back on the show to teach us how to make sure we maintain the willpower to stop overeating.

Former Binge Eater

Dr. Glenn Livingston talked extensively about how to stop bingeing on episode 56 of the Learn True Health.  He gave a lot of tips in that episode, so I suggest everyone check it out.

For those who have not heard the initial guesting of Dr. Glenn Livingston on my show, you’d be surprised that he was a former binge eater himself. He struggled throughout his younger years when he went to graduate school until he got married.

He found it had to exercise to career demands and so his metabolism went down.  Having the willpower to stop eating just didn’t seem possible.

Family Of Psychologists

Dr. Glenn Livingston comes from a family of psychologists, so he felt it was essential to follow the same path. Seventeen family therapists to be exact!

When he got divorced years ago, Dr. Glenn Livingston was admittedly unhappy about that. He sought advice from his mother who was also a psychotherapist. That’s when he was able to trace his bingeing, particularly his love for chocolate.

Apparently, because of Dr. Glenn Livingston’s family situation when he was young, he was drawn to chocolate early on and was never really strictly regulated from eating it. That, according to Dr. Glenn Livingston, was the match that lit the fire.

Finding The Connection

Now that he knew the probable cause of his lack of willpower to stop bingeing, Dr. Glenn Livingston went to psychologists, psychiatrists, and even Overeaters Anonymous to research more about bingeing. He also funded a 40,000-person study between the late 90s and early 2000s.

“I got all of these people to take a survey about the food they were bingeing on, their lifestyle, personalities, and digging what the connection was. Then I realized that maybe it was because there was no self-love,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.

In that study, Dr. Glenn Livingston found out that people who overeat on chocolate tend to be lonely. People who had trouble with crunchy, salty things were usually stressed at work. And people who were drawn to eating soft, chewy stuff like bagels and pasta, tend to be stressed at home.

“The emotional conversation with my mom led me to believe that I would be cured. I was able to forgive myself,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “I forgave my mom, and we became closer. And I feel I became a more soulful person.” 

Justifying Emotional Discomfort

Dr. Glenn Livingston was able to come to terms that his bingeing originated from a time in his life where his mother did not regulate him from overeating. But his bingeing still didn’t stop. In fact, he found it as a justification to eat even more.

“If you have a fire that’s out of control, there are two strategies that you can use. You can try to put out the fire, or you can build a fireplace,” Dr. Glenn Livingston said. “A lot of people won’t have that emotional discomfort in order not to binge. I find that it helps a little, but it doesn’t work that well.” 

He adds, “What works better is intervening at the level of that crazy food demon. Learn how to have clarity about how you want food to play in your life and make decisions about food ahead of time.”

Understanding Willpower

Dr. Glenn Livingston says willpower is a fatigable muscle. And there are only so many right decisions we can make on any given day. This fact has been proven in so many medical studies.

“If you tax people mentally with math problems, they have more trouble resisting a marshmallow before and after the math problem,” explains Dr. Glenn Livingston. “Every decision you’re making is taxing the willpower. And that’s why people start the morning with the best intentions, then overeat at the end of the day.”

Furthermore, Dr. Glenn Livingston says that knowing we’re not targeting a loving part of the brain, addiction, on the other hand, targets a very aggressive part of the brain. Now the problem is, once we justify something like eating a chocolate bar, we are opening ourselves up to our lizard brain. 

Lizard Brain

The lizard brain has the eat, mate or kills mindset.  There is no love. Plus, addiction targets the lizard brain.

“You’re trying to nurture that part of you that’s having the craving. But the part of you that’s having the craving, isn’t this nurturing creature,” explains Dr. Glenn Livingston. “It’s no more part of your human identity than your testicles or ovaries are. They can generate urges, but it’s what you do with those urges that form your character, decisions, and way of eating.”

Developing Willpower

First of all, Dr. Glenn Livingston says we need clarity about what healthy food was and what it wasn’t. Focus and be clear about the kind of person you want to be around that food and make a clear commitment to be that person. 

“Just for the moment, put aside the moment that you can’t do it. And imagine what if you did and how would your life be better,” Dr. Glenn Livingston advises. “Go into detail about the specifics of that future. We call this the ‘big why.'”

The ‘big why’ can be anything from wanting to lose weight, eating clean, have clearer skin, have more energy for work, be free from food obsession or wanting clothes to fit better.  Some other reasons for developing the willpower to stop overeating is to be able to socialize or become a better role model for others. 

“When your inner brat says you can’t do this because you’re deprived, think about what you are depriving yourself of, by you eating junk foods,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “It’s never a matter of whether you’re deprived or not. Either you’re going to deprive yourself of immediate pleasure, or you’re going to deprive yourself of the big future that you are looking for.” 

He adds, “So what you want to do is make sure that you know both sides of that deprivation equation and make a decision.” 

Get High On Food

Bottomline, Dr. Glenn Livingston recommends that people learn to get high with foods instead of being addicted to something unhealthy. He says it’s beneficial if people shift paradigms by learning the art of focusing and clarity.

If you’re set on getting on that road to health or need an added push, I suggest looking into Dr. Glenn Livingston’s programs. He offers individual and group programs which have produced a lot of success stories.

For added information on anything about how to stop overeating, do check out Dr. Glenn Livingston’s Never Binge Again podcast as well.

Bio

Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long-time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. 

His previous work, theories, and research have been published in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, and American Demographics.  He has also guested on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV. 

Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Glenn Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.

Fasting For Healing  

http://learntruehealth.com/fasting-for-healing

Fasting is a fantastic way to heal naturally from several health conditions. According to my guest today, Dr. Alan Goldhamer, fasting is safe and effective when done right. So read on to learn everything you need to know about this healing method.   

Discovering Fasting  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer recalls that when he was in 4th grade, his best friend Doug always beat him in basketball.  He wanted to get healthier to beat his best friend, and he happened to find a book about fasting by Herbert Shelton.  

Herbert Shelton was  American author, naturopath, alternative medicine advocate, pacifist, and vegetarian. He was also a supporter of and fasting. But Dr. Alan Goldhamer still failed in beating Doug despite his efforts to fast and adopt a plant-based diet. Because apparently, his best friend Doug took the same program. 

Pursuing A Medical Degree  

As Dr. Alan Goldhamer got older, he met a chiropractor when he was 16 years old. That chiropractor said he had the best job in the world. He further explained that it's because the body did all the healing, the patient did all the work, and all he had to do was take credit for the good results. Since then, Dr. Alan Goldhamer decided that pursuing a medical degree was his calling.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer eventually went to a chiropractic school in Oregon. But he says it didn't give him the background that he wanted, which was to be able to take on certain kinds of treatments and specific conditions.   

Due to his desire to learn more, Dr. Alan Goldhamer, later on, went to Pacific College of Osteopathic Medicine in Australia. He did his residency there and worked with hundreds of patients who kept getting well.  

TrueNorth Health Center  

In 1984, Dr. Alan Goldhamer felt it was time to go back to the United States with his wife who is also a doctor. Together they opened the TrueNorth Health Center. Fast forward today, it's been 33 years since they have been helping people recover their health using diet and lifestyle modification.   

He shares that usually when people have diabetes, heart conditions or autoimmune disease, their physician will usually recommend taking 1 to 5 drugs. If you do exactly as you were told, Dr. Alan Goldhamer says those doctors will guarantee you'll never get well. According to him, that's the promise of conventional treatments for health conditions.  

Track Record  

"We have a program that ends the disease. But only if you also eat well, exercise and go to bed on time," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer. "Our alternative approach can get you healthy enough to eliminate the need for medications."  

Most of Dr. Alan Goldhamer's patients were entirely able to remove medications by eliminating the reason why they needed the medication. Dr. Alan Goldhamer says it's really because of a management strategy towards healthy living.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer's patients who have diabetes, autoimmune disease, cancer, obesity and metabolic syndrome have benefited from fasting. The TrueNorth Health Center has also dealt with patients suffering from kidney diseases, although their fasting program is modified.  

Furthermore, Dr. Alan Goldhamer also reveals that his team has done a fasting safety study. Hence, they assure everyone that fasting is safe as long as you follow the appropriate protocols.   

In Dr. Alan Goldhamer's center, patients are appropriately screened and then undergo a physical exam, lab assessment, and monitoring. The center's patients are also seen twice a day by the center's staff of doctors wherein they evaluate every patient's clinical presentation.  

"We had 174 consecutive patients who underwent fasting, and we have seen a wide variety of conditions," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  

What Is Fasting?  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer says that fasting has been around for a long time. Virtually most religious traditions recognize it as an essential component for a good reason.   

"Fasting is a biological adaptation. If it weren't for fasting and the ability to fast, our species could not have done what we have done, which is wandering away from the tropics," Dr. Alan Goldhamer said.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer also reveals that because of the biological adaptation of fasting, human beings can go up to 70 days without eating. This is because our brain has changed from burning glucose to fat. So if you didn't burn fat, we would have to break our proteins down to provide glucose. And after a period, we would eventually die.  

"We are capable of doing fasting. And at our TrueNorth Health Center, we have water fasting programs from 5 to 40 days. But we do not make our patients do fasting any longer than necessary to get the problem solved," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  

The Truth About Salt  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer says sodium is an essential nutrient without which we die. He says it is such a critical nutrient that our body is designed to detect it in minimal quantities. In fact, when you can taste natural sodium, you know that particular food is healthy for you.  

"Salt tells you vegetables are good. But when you concentrate it, it artificially stimulates the dopamine production in the brain, and that leads to overeating. That's why people are fat and sick cause they eat salt or sugar," explains Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  

Furthermore, Dr. Alan Goldhamer says salt has a whole bunch of problems when it is introduced in high concentration. Typically we'd be getting about have a milligram of sodium per calorie. But Dr. Alan Goldhamer says people in our culture are often eating 2 to 5 milligrams of sodium per calorie or even more.   

"When we put salt in the food, the body has to hold fluid to neutralize and compensate for it. That's why blood pressure goes up. And it is also why many people aged 65 or older have hypertension," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer also shares that salt also helps us get fat. Salt makes us eat more before we feel satisfied. And there's a lot of physiological consequences of excess sodium.   

Among the physical effects of salt include:   Fluid retention Joint pains Edema Swelling Non-healing of wounds  Congestive heart failure Respiratory issues 

"Avoid added salt. Get all the salt you need by eating whole plant foods, seeds, nuts, and fruits. You don't have to add highly processed foods which are full of chemicals," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  

GMO  

In episode 133 of the Learn True Health, Jeffrey Smith was my guest.  He is the creator of anti-GMO documentaries and GMO awareness.   

Jeffery Smith discussed that there was a study in Canada. The study found that eating GMO foods, specifically B2 corn, created the B2 toxin which explodes the stomach of insects. They discovered that when we eat that type of corn, GMO genes get into the bacteria of the gut.   

Over time, the gut started creating the B2 toxin inside of people. Even if they no longer eat corn, their body was still very concentrated with the B2 toxin.   

"We have to figure out how to make plants more resistant to chemicals produced by companies. A great way to reset is through fasting and whole foods plant diet. Only then will clinical symptoms begin to improve," Dr. Alan Goldhamer said.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer also shares that his team just completed a study with their colleague, Luigi Fontana at Washington University. For the first time, they looked at the microbiome before and after fasting. They are already done with sample collection and data is currently being processed.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer's Diet  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer usually eats any of the following for breakfast: fresh fruit, leafy greens like lettuce, cucumber, and celery. Sometimes he alternates between oatmeal, cornmeal, nuts or seeds.   

For lunch or dinner, he usually indulges in large salads and steamed vegetables. He pairs it with a serving of complex carbohydrates like potatoes, rice beans, sweet potato, and squash. If he goes hungry between mealtimes, he usually satisfies his hunger pangs with another salad.  

Ideally, the diet has to be very nutrient-rich and low density. Dr. Alan Goldhamer stresses that whether raw or cooked, he is more concerned about what his patients are eating rather than how they are preparing it.   

Best Diet Choices  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer believes that raw foods and vegetables are not always possible to get enough total calories in, without overdoing the sugar or the fat. He says that it is vital to see sufficient calories in the diet which is 10 to 12% of calories from protein, 5 to 18% from fat, and the balance of complex carbohydrates. 

As far as juicing is concerned, Dr. Alan Goldhamer believes that it is indeed suitable for people who can't eat whole foods. But he says the best solution to gain optimal health is to eat whole foods.  

"We're advocating a whole plant food diet with limited amounts of concentrated high-fat foods," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer. "You also have to eliminate foods like meat, fried foods, eggs, salt, oil, and sugar. It's not about changing the food that you have to worry about but rather changing the palate."  

Bio

Dr. Alan Goldhamer is a graduate of Western States Chiropractic College and the Pacific College of Osteopathic Medicine and for 34 years has been the director of the TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa CA. TrueNorth is the largest facility in the world specializing in medically supervised water-only fasting. He is the author of the Health Promoting Cookbook and the co-author of The Pleasure Trap.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer is the principal investigator in numerous studies involving fasting that have been published in the peer-reviewed medical literature.

49. 229 Fighting For Freedom of Medical Choice, Is Homeopathic Medicine Safe and Effective, FDA, Health Freedom, with The President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice Paola Brown and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
http://learntruehealth.libsyn.... download (audio/mpeg, 97.54Mb)

Description:

Save our freedom of choice! Visit and take action:
http://HomeopathyChoice.org 

 

Homeopathy Choice

http://learntruehealth.com/homeopathy-choice/

Homeopathy Choice is getting famous as one of the top organizations fighting for the protection of homeopathy. But unfortunately, here in the United States, in particular, there is a serious roadblock that may hamper our freedom to use homeopathy. Today’s guest, Paola Brown will elaborate on her fight to make sure homeopathy is a choice that will always be within reach.   

Humble Beginnings  

Paola Brown is a mother of three who lives on a Texas farm with her family.  She was initially an immigrant when her family moved to the United States from Brazil when she was three years old.   

When Paola Brown’s family first moved from Brazil, she recalled that her mother brought a homeopathy kit with her. Her mother knew the family wouldn’t be having regular health insurance since they were a poor immigrant family and her dad was going to school that time.  

When her dad graduated, he eventually got a job shortly after.  Relieved that the family was going to get real medical care, Paola Brown’s mother threw away her homeopathy kit thinking there was no need for alternative methods.   

Personal Health Issues  

Fast forward several years later, Paola Brown developed bladder issues. As soon as she got married, she kept having urinary tract infections and had to take a lot of antibiotics. That eventually opened the door to Paola Brown developing autoimmune diseases like chronic bleeding.   

Doctors recommended painkillers and even joining a support group for oncoming addiction. Paola Brown, who was only 25 years old that time, was offended by the recommendation. Because of that, the doctor encouraged her to look for other alternatives which led her back to rediscovering homeopathy.  

“I searched for a long time and tried a lot of things that made more sense than homeopathy. But I, later on, went back to what my mom used. It 100% cured my health condition,” said Paola Brown.  

Paola Brown says that Cantharis 30 or 200 were essential in her bladder healing. She also used Staphysagria 30. Paola Brown also believes that if only had used Staphysagria for honeymoon cysts when she got married, she most likely wouldn’t have to suffer from the chronic bladder condition for years.   

Understanding Homeopathy  

Paola Brown explains that homeopathy is a specific paradigm within Natural Medicine. It is commonly found in health food stores. Homeopathy uses ultra-diluted natural substances, but after they are prepared into the homeopathic form, they become entirely non-toxic.  

And that’s so interesting about homeopathy. You can use some poisonous substance, dilute it, and it becomes a homeopathic version of that substance.   

“There’s a specific process for the diluted solution. It has to be well done and done by a pharmacy,” explains Paola Brown.  

I am a firm believer in homeopathy. It’s a safe way to treat many health conditions like migraines and fever.  I even use it to treat my son when he has gas, colic pain or teething pains.  

Paola Brown says it is not as easy to learn as essential oils. It takes time, effort and energy. But the effort is worth it because it feels almost like magic when you find the right one.   

Recommended For Moms  

Paola Brown recommends that moms, in particular, should learn about this specific natural method of healing. She has been teaching homeopathy to moms for several years. And she gained many students, enough to form an organization uplifting the benefits of this natural method.  

“We currently have seventy-five volunteers contacting our senators. And we have two main missions,” said Paola Brown. “One is to get the attention of President Donald Trump to talk about the unfair actions on homeopathy of his FDA appointee, Scott Gottlieb and congressmen/women/Senators who sit on the FDA’s oversight committee.”   

Homeopathy Choice  

In hoping to gain the attention of the President and decisionmakers, Paola Brown is encouraging the public to help circulate their letter from their Homeopathy Choice website.   

“The FDA is currently not issuing any new regulations on homeopathy. They’re not trying to take homeopathy away from us right now literally, so we have to be careful not to make that statement. Because if we make statements that aren’t true, the discussion is over and we lose,” Paola Brown said.  

Homeopathy Choice has a scheduled from to Washington, D.C. on February 24 to March 4. Hence, Paola Brown is also inviting people to raise their voices regarding this issue.  

FDA Draft Guidance  

For those who are unaware of the current issue that Paola Brown and her organization HomeopathyChoice are fighting for, it’s connected with the recent announcement of the FDA. The FDA announced in December 2017 through their Draft Guidance Document that they plan to withdraw the Compliance Policy Guide 400.400 (CPG), which is a document that has benefitted the homeopathic industry for three decades.  

Prejudice Against Homeopathy  

Comparing one FDA press release on homeopathy and five FDA press releases on the Tamiflu, Paola Brown says there is an apparent prejudice against homeopathy. She says the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry, as well as medical doctors, are participating in a type of ‘medical cleansing’ of homeopathy–a smear campaign to suppress the science and healthcare choice of seven million Americans.   

“It is appropriate for the FDA to regulate the manufacturing of homeopathic medicine, but they should not prevent our right to access this medicine simply because they don’t epitomize it,” said Paola Brown.  

Furthermore, Paola Brown says that FDA’s homeopathy press release states, “People may be placing their trust and money in therapies that may bring little to no benefit and that the FDA has a responsibility to protect the public from products that may not deliver any benefit.”   

Americans for Homeopathy Choice takes issue with these statements because:   

a) The majority of mothers who use homeopathy are highly educated individuals who have the right to use this medicine in their homes. 

b) Even without a college degree, people are smart enough to figure out how to use homeopathy. Around 100 million people from all different walks of life in India use homeopathy as their primary form of healthcare. And given a chance, Americans can use homeopathy successfully and efficiently.  

According to Paola Brown, the FDA should not be infantile the public by saying we are not capable of identifying the benefits or alleged lack thereof, in homeopathy.  

“I’m suspicious that they want that confusion. Because the FDA can say that we have a hard time complying or that we’re confused,” said Paola Brown. “It could be used as their reason to formulate some new regulations. And justify the move by saying they need to regulate this industry more because the public is having a hard time. That’s when we lose our freedom.”  

More Pressing Issues  

Paola Brown says that according to the FDA, homeopathy is just a three billion dollar industry. And the pharma industry has so much more. But think about it. For every one dollar spent on a homeopathic product, that could be the equivalent of multiple in the pharma industry.   

“Think of all those drugs that I could have taken for my medical condition. All those procedures and the medical devices. Cantharis 200 was a huge help in curing my health condition and cost $8 to buy. The trick is finding the remedy you need,” Paola Brown said.  

Empowerment  

Paola Brown believes that moms have a unique voice here, and a unique relationship with homeopathy. And she says her organization is particularly offended by what the FDA draft guidance is doing.   

The FDA said in their Draft Guidance, “People may be placing their trust on money, in therapy that may bring little or no benefit. The FDA has a responsibility to protect the public from products that may not deliver any benefit.”  

Paola Brown reacts by saying that looking at a mother’s perspective on that statement; it comes across as the FDA thinks we are too stupid to be able to determine whether or not a remedy works. Ironically, mothers who use homeopathy, especially in the United States, are highly educated.  

“I realize that the FDA has to regulate or protect the lowest common denominator, the most vulnerable in the population. So meaning, they don’t regulate the educated moms. Instead, they regulate who they think is the dumbest person in the crowd,” said Paola Brown.  

She adds. “The result is that the entire market gets dumb down. So basically, the FDA is enabling the public to get more stupid. The FDA is sacrificing the power of the consumer to use and learn homeopathy under their guide. They are disempowering us by depriving us of our choices.”  

Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets  

There was a time when FDA went into homeopathic pharmacies and ran inspections. The FDA allegedly found varying levels of belladonna in those teething tablets. But Paola Brown says the FDA failed to mention the truth.  

Apparently, even if the levels of belladonna were varied, they were all still well below toxic levels. Paola Brown also learned that one had to take 12 bottles within a short amount of time to maybe reach some toxic level. Despite that, the FDA said it was at elevated amounts which made it sound dangerous, but they weren’t.   

“It became a scapegoat to badmouth homeopathy. And it is the only reason why the FDA wanted to revisit this draft guidance and CPG,” Paola Brown said.   

She adds, “The fact that people are capable of finding value, people choose things based on the perceived value. There is something here that is marginalized and prejudiced. And for homeopathy to survive this long, it is because people find it valuable. That’s how we learn.”  

Bio

Paola Brown is a wife and mother of 3 children, and they live on a homestead in Texas where (at peak production) they raise about 80% of their food. She has been a college professor for 13 years and is an activist advocating for homeopathy.   

Paola Brown sits on the board of the Texas Society of Homeopathy, but most importantly, she is the President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice (HomeopathyChoice.org). She is not a homeopath but is a mom who is passionate about homeopathy, using it as the primary form of healthcare for her family and animals. Because Paola Brown is not a health professional, she can speak freely about homeopathy, and how it has cured her of her many autoimmune issues.

50. 228 Safe and Effective Ways to A Strong and Healthy Immune System, Filming a Health Documentary, Real Immunity, Homeoprophylaxis with Cilla Whatcott, Ph.D. in Homeopathy and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Homeopathy 

http://learntruehealth.com/homeopathy/

Homeopathy effectively treats fever and several other conditions. To teach us more about what homeopathy is, I’m so thrilled Cilla Whatcott is again on the show for the third time to explain to us everything you need to know about this amazing method of natural healing.

Discovering Homeopathy

Cilla Whatcott has guested on episode 137 and episode 155 where she elaborated on how her homeopathy journey started. She describes herself as a classical Homeopath who has four children — three were adopted from Russia, China, and Taiwan, and one is biological.

She recalls all three kids had problems like asthma, kidney reflux, and migraines. One of her daughters, in particular, had a vaccine injury and suffered from aseptic meningitis.  So early on, Cilla Whatcott realized that it was ultimately up to her to take care of her kids.

A ray of hope happened when Cilla Whatcott’s pediatrician sent her to a Homeopath. Eventually, her children’s health improved considerably. Because of that, Cilla Whatcott decided to study homeopathy. So instead of pursuing a career in dance after applying for a Fullbright scholarship in Europe, she studied in homeopathic school for four years. 

“Initial research just led me into vaccine science. Looking at the studies and attending conferences, it was just asking all the deeper questions about vaccines,” said Cilla Whatcott. “After I attended homeopathy school, I discovered homeoprophylaxis and recognized an amazing alternative to educate the immune system.”

What A Fever Means

Cilla Whatcott has a new video documentary coming out called Real Immunity.  The 2-part documentary one of the topics extensively covered is the subject regarding fever.

Among the experts, Cilla Whatcott included in the film is Dr. Debra Gambrell who I have guested on my podcast’s episode 164. I generally know to have a fever is good because it is a distinct signal to warn you that something is going on in your body.

Some people deal with fevers by soaking in an ice bath. And some people wrap themselves up to sweat out the heat which was what my father used to do. In my episode with Debra Gambrell, she links fevers to neurological development, and that is a necessary function of development.

And when we suppress a fever, we’re inhibiting the brain and all the nerves in the body. Heavy metals in the body also do the same thing. That’s why we end up dealing with memory issues.

Cilla Whatcott also shares that Naturopath Dr. Kendra Becker is also in the film. And she gives the cutest example of first-time fever with the baby and how the parents are ready to lose their mind. She narrates that once parents come out of the clinic after 72 hours, they usually look like they walked on fire.

“Fever is a natural mechanism that nature put in place, for us to create natural viral antibodies. So when you have a fever, your body is producing national antibodies to fight whatever the infection is. And then provide you with lifelong immunity to that particular virus,” said Cilla Whatcott. 

What A Fever Does

Cilla Whatcott adds that a fever also resets the gut. A fever resets our system, develops antibodies, and discharges toxins. It is a keynote of that circular process exercising the immune system. It is the basis of building a lifelong immunity.

Fever And Drugs

To suppress a fever with drugs, Cilla Whatcott says we’re only driving the pathology deeper into the organism. So in the film, Cilla Whatcott featured something she calls the health helix which offers a lot of information and knowledge value about fevers and how to treat it.

“If you suppress the fever, discharge, and the symptoms, it is driven deeper into the system, and you see a deeper pathology,” explains Cilla Whatcott.

Other Conditions

Cilla Whatcott says that another issue is how we commonly deal with asthma and respiratory symptoms. She said we might see it go deeper into behavioral symptoms like ADHD, depression, and anxiety. We will eventually see the trajectory of health going downwards.

“If you remove suppressive toxins and have clean water, air, food and an emotional environment that is supportive, then you have all the components to regenerate,” said Cilla Whatcott.

Homeoprophylaxis

Like what Cilla Whatcott stressed in two of our past episodes, homeoprophylaxis is a subset of homeopathy where they use different remedies. It is utilized for a lot of health conditions in many countries. Highly effective with no side effects, it has no deaths, and it doesn’t compromise innate immunity.

“It is completely unprofitable for pharma, inexpensive to make and easy to distribute. Even unlicensed personnel can distribute it,” Cilla Whatcott said. “It applies to all genders, all ages, all species and mutated viruses. So when something mutates and a new vaccine has to be developed, it’s not the same compared to homeoprophylaxis. Between effectiveness, safety, and eco-suitable, you can’t beat it.”

My past guest, Dr. Carolyn Dean on episode 227, has the same conviction. She encourages people to continue the fight in implementing safe and natural alternatives to treat various health conditions. 

Truth About Vaccines

Those who have been following my podcast would recall that I mention Ty Bollinger’s “The Truth About Vaccines” video documentary. A lot of people are afraid to watch it, perhaps because they aren’t emotionally ready to learn the truth.

But the documentary is something everyone should watch because it teaches us how to build immunity. In my opinion, Ty Bollinger did a fabulous job. The video includes interviews with celebrated experts.

Educating people to veer away from vaccines is hard work, but some doctors strive to push that cause. I had Dr. Paul Thomas in episode 224, who has over 13,000 patients in his Portland, Oregon practice. He says most of his patients are unvaccinated.

Dr. Paul Thomas shared that during the most massive influenza outbreak they had recently, not one of his kids got the flu. He teaches the patients what food to eat and not to eat.

And to help oversee his patients, he has pediatrician Dr. Linda Baker in his office who does homeoprophylaxis, who incidentally, is a colleague of Cilla Whatcott.

“Ten or twelve years ago, I was teaching Vaccine Information. It was so non-controversial at that time when a local community college allowed me to teach the course,” recalls Cilla Whatcott. “Along came a time when the community college said we couldn’t hold this class anymore. Because they were getting pressure from the health department.

So now, when Cilla Whatcott teaches in different venues, it is a welcome surprise that more parents now know a lot of information. Apparently, more parents now do their research.

“The societal shift was fascinating. It’s a result of the internet, a result of people seeing injuries, and being motivated to step and do what best for their kids. Things are changing,” said Cilla Whatcott.

Mission Behind Real Immunity Documentary

To be able to provide more information to the public, Cilla Whatcott also made a 2-part video documentary called Real Immunity. Her goal was to make something empowering and supportive because she genuinely believes that to raise consciousness, you need to associate with others on the same wavelength as you are. And that strengthens us in such a way as to bring others up.

“And fear is one of the lowest rungs on the ladder of consciousness. Fear doesn’t motivate us and instead, squelches us,” said Cilla Whatcott. “So what I wanted to do is make a film that first and foremost, dispelled fear and teach people how to access that inner wisdom, the intelligence of life or spirit.”

Cilla Whatcott also wanted to provide method tools through her film. She says everybody’s toolkit is unique to them. So to do that, we need to do the research. The underlying theme of the movie means that we can’t rely on someone else to take care of our health because we are born with the gift of immunity.

First part of the documentary is called, “Quested for Real Immunity,” while the second part is called, “Passage To Real Immunity.” The video will be free for 36 hours, and it will be available in DVD form.

There is also an opportunity for people to bring the film to their hometown through the Real Immunity website. People can input their zip code to search for the nearest local theater. A theater screening of the film can be organized provided it reaches the minimum number ticket sales. Plus, the one who was able to raise the minimum ticket sales will be given 5% of the proceeds.

Making The Film

Cilla Whatcott says that the visual and auditory message has a powerful impact. She has taught for years in the community. But she realized there is no way she could educate in the same way compared to making a film. That became her motivation to teach through a new medium.

She originally planned to divide the documentary to seven or ten parts. Then the series shifted to four parts and now finalized to two parts. The first episode is what Cilla Whatcott described as a foundation episode and scheduled to launch on February 22 this year. It dispels the fear and talks about intuition. It also takes a more in-depth look at what makes a competent practitioner and a good patient.

The second episode coming out later this year dives into methods. Cilla Whatcott clarifies that she’s not going to tell the viewer what to do but instead utilize interviews with experts to talk about Chinese medicine, functional medicine, gemmotherapy, homeopathy, and homeoprophylaxis.

“It’s up to the viewer to explore and make those choices. I feel strongly about free urgency. Rather than expecting people to look towards someone else, and say you need to do it. Providing choices is better,” Cilla Whatcott said.

Cilla Whatcott also made a special mention of Dr. Jeanne Ohm from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. According to Cilla Whatcott, Dr. Jeanne Ohm dives into what is the intelligence of life. She is an excellent resource person if anyone wants to get more information on making the right medical choices for kids.

“More than anything, I want to give parents support as the experts for their child. And that they can trust their choices because they have their child’s welfare at heart,” said Cilla Whatcott. 

Challenges In Making The Film

Cilla Whatcott shares that there are a lot of hits and misses in the making of the film. She went as far as taking an online film course and took time to look for videographers. It was hard soliciting funds, getting the right videographer and marketing team but Cilla Whatcott says the effort was worth it.

“I had great relationships with really fabulous people that I respected. That was the easy part. And it is exciting to know that I completed something I envisioned,” said Cilla Whatcott.

Power Of Film

Among the experts Cilla Whatcott included in the film, she said the interviews with Dr. Andrew Wakefield was most interesting. British gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield earned the media moniker, “Father of Anti-Vaccine Movement,” after his controversial research linking MMR vaccine and autism came out.

In Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s paper, he mentioned his discovery of measles virus in the bowels of children and testimonials of mothers who saw changes in their kids after being vaccinated with the MMR vaccine. His paper suggested the need for more studies and recommended that the vaccine is given separately.

A series of events occurred and Dr. Andrew Wakefield eventually lost his license to practice in the United Kingdom. He eventually moved to the United States and began other types of research on autism apart from making films. One of the films Dr. Andrew Wakefield made was titled, “Vaxed.” It exposed the fraud that took place within the CDC and the MMR study.

Dr. Andrew Wakefield also made the film, “Who Killed Alex Spourdalakis,” which is about an autistic teenager who was given medication for his condition and the hospital would not take him off the medication even if it had adverse effects. To end the suffering, the mother finally killed her child and tried to kill herself.

The mother was later on charged in court for first-degree murder. During the progression of the case, the prosecuting attorney found out Dr. Andrew Wakefield was filming the child the whole time. The lawyer asked for footage and eventually, the charges were dropped against the mother.

Magnesium

http://learntruehealth.com/magnesium/

Magnesium is an essential mineral that can cure various health conditions. However, most people take magnesium for granted when along with other minerals, so many illnesses can be reversed. So, we’re fortunate to have Dr. Carolyn Dean elaborate on why magnesium is vital to our health.  

Early Challenges  

Dr. Carolyn Dean went into practice in 1979. Before that, she went through quite a challenge since around that time; women weren’t given high ranks in the workforce even if they were bright.   

Getting her medical degree first, Dr. Carolyn Dean recalls that back then, there were no Naturopathic schools in Canada. But she already thought back then that thirty to forty years down the road, becoming a Naturopath would be popular, and everyone would get on board taking care of health. Dr. Carolyn Dean even thought a three-day work week was possible.  

“But we know what happened. The commercialization of medicine and disease happened, and medicine just turned into the dark side,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.  

Roadblocks  

Dr. Carolyn Dean also remembers the obstacles she went through especially for doctors like her who were promoting their dietary supplements.  Their voices were suppressed if it was about supporting natural products.  

“Medical authorities won’t allow us to say something like magnesium might be a health cure. They won’t let you see that because it will mean that you’ll stop taking drugs,” reveals Dr. Carolyn Dean.  

Legal Challenges  

Dr. Carolyn Dean was practicing as a Naturopath and was into natural treatments like Acupuncture and Homeopathy. She also did occasional medical surgeries to help save organs.  

Things started to get out of hand when Dr. Carolyn Dean said some bad things about sugar on a Canadian national TV show in 1991 or 1992. After the episode aired, Dr. Carolyn Dean found herself attacked by the Sugar Institute of Canada. They went to Dr. Carolyn Dean’s licensing board which resulted in the board admonishing her. They even sent spies into her practice.  

“They got this young man to complain to my licensing board that I refused to give him a homeopathic remedy for his allergies on his first appointment. If I gave it to him, he still would have complained. It was a planned thing,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean. 

Years later, Dr. Carolyn Dean had no more license to practice in Canada, since she already acquired her California license. The medical board took the opportunity to hold a mock court in Toronto. They took away Dr. Carolyn Dean’s non-existent license to send a message to medical practitioners that they couldn’t do alternatives.  

“So if people wonder why doctors don’t get involved with nutrition, alternatives, and dietary supplements, it is because they are likely to be attacked,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.   

I understand Dr. Carolyn Dean’s ordeal.  My hero, Dr. Joe Wallach has been attacked eleven or twelve times by the FDA. He’s very outspoken and has always stood his ground on his research and findings.   

The Magnesium Miracle Book  

There are 65 health conditions that Dr. Carolyn Dean has listed in her Magnesium Miracle book. According to her, those conditions can be triggered or caused by a magnesium deficiency and misdiagnosed as diseases.   

I suggest everyone get a copy of the book as well as Dr. Carolyn Dean’s other published works. It is a wonderful resource to educate you on why minerals are so essential.  

Magnesium And Sugar  

Dr. Carolyn Dean says there is apparently a vindication about magnesium and sugar. Sugar-lobbied groups changed the whole dialogue about sugar and made it about fats. They saw the research thirty to forty years ago, showing that sugar was bad for the heart.   

“Groups buried that research and blamed it on fats. We know that olive oil, coconut oil, and butter are good for the body, but those groups instead lobbied for trans fat which is even worse for health than sugar,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.   

Burning Fats  

Dr. Carolyn Dean explains that now with all this sugar and excess carbohydrates that the body cannot sustain, our body keeps making insulin. The insulin will push some of the sugars into our cells for energy, the rest in liver storage. Hence, increasing the risk of having a fatty liver.   

“As long as you are eating carbohydrates constantly, you will never burn fat. So the beauty of a ketogenic diet and fasting is that you stop eating carbohydrates to a great extent. After sugar gets used up, that’s when you start fat burning and lose weight,” Dr. Carolyn Dean explains.  

Ongoing Debate  

There has never been a death due to dietary supplements. Despite that, Dr. Carolyn Dean says many medical authorities are still saying supplements are dangerous. And lucky for us, things are different now than it was before. Today, our voices can be heard especially since more people are seeking treatments the natural way.  

One major issue at hand is the fact that the FDA made an announcement recently, planning to pass a guideline wherein people can no longer buy homeopathic remedies. The verdict is still pending. Because currently, there is a write-in and call in period wherein the public is allowed to comment on these proposed FDA guidelines making homeopathic remedies into drugs.   

Codex Alimentarius  

I recall Dr. Rima Laibow, who is a successful doctor of Natural Medicine. She graduated from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1970 and had studied more than 16,000 pages of Codex Alimentarius documentation.   

Codex Alimentarius is a compilation of medical standards, codes of practice and guidelines on food, food production, and food safety. But Dr. Rima Laibow believes it is a severe threat to health freedom. She spoke lengthily about it in her speech at the 2005 National Association of Nutrition Professionals conference.   

On the other hand, Dr. Carolyn Dean encourages people to support the causes of the National Health Alliance. Among the organization’s current focus is spearheading activities to fight against the suppression of Natural Medicine. This is because medicine companies look at Natural Medicine as competition.  

Importance of Dietary Supplements  

Dr. Carolyn Dean says we need dietary supplements to make up for the loss of vitamins and minerals in our body. She reveals that a hundred years ago, we could get approximately 500mg of magnesium in our diet. But now we’re considering ourselves lucky even to get at least 200mg of magnesium in our diet. The alarming thing is, not any of this information is brought out to the public.  

“For all the processing the body goes through to burn fat for energy, we need other co-factors for those metabolic processes. And magnesium is necessary for 700 to 800 different enzymatic processes in the body,” Dr. Carolyn Dean said.  

Dr. Carolyn Dean also says that patients are usually clueless on how to maximize taking supplements. It was also a learning process for Dr. Carolyn Dean. Years ago, she initially was anti-supplements after trying to work with her heart palpitations, leg cramps, and neck pain.  

“In my efforts to get healthy, I realized I was the poster child for magnesium deficiency. But I found out I couldn’t take one pill of magnesium without getting the laxative effect,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean. “Years after I wrote my book, I even was trying to interest minerals manufacturers in researching, and making non-laxative magnesium.”  

ReMag Supplements

She adds, “Finally, I made my own. When people started to take my ReMag supplements, they didn’t need anything else. They started feeling better,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.  

In further studies, Dr. Carolyn Dean also found out that the body absorbs only 4% of magnesium oxide. The rest becomes a laxative. She also explained in her first book that 500mg of magnesium oxide has 300g of elemental magnesium. Taking Dr. Carolyn Dean’s line of supplements in effect regulates so many factors that our body needs to function well, especially our heart.  

“The heart is one big muscle. Magnesium controls muscles and nerves. If you don’t have enough magnesium, your muscle goes into spasm because it has too much calcium,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.  

She adds, “Magnesium doesn’t act like blood thinner. But it prevents the excess calcium from building up, and calcium triggers blood clots. The enzyme that balances cholesterol is controlled by magnesium.”  

Suggested Diet  

First of all, Dr. Carolyn Dean recommends taking Epson salt and magnesium citrate in powder form, mix with water and sip through the day. Mostly, it is essential to stay hydrated.  

Dr. Carolyn Dean recommends drinking half your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of water. Then add ¼ tsp of Sea salt or Himalayan salt to every quart of drinking water.  

For solid foods, Dr. Carolyn Dean’s favorite is making a huge salad mixed with salmon for protein and macadamia nuts pate. Macadamia nuts are high in fat, but they’re fantastic!  

To make the pate, mix 8 ounces of lemon juice concentrate, 4 ounces of water, one teaspoon of unrefined sea salt, a handful of garlic and blend with 2 to 3 cups of nuts.   

Dr. Carolyn Dean’s favorite treats, on the other hand, is eating frozen organic strawberry with a quarter cup of heavy whipping cream. She sometimes mixes it with kefir and eats it with ice cream. 

Her simple banana treat sounds just as delicious! She suggests taking a frozen banana, roll it with a tablespoon of cacao powder, a tablespoon of coconut oil and sugar substitute.  

She also affirms that there are a lot of fun things you can do with a ketogenic diet. Out of all the diets, the ketogenic diet is an excellent detox from sugar, it gives the pancreas a nice rest, and it is an anti-inflammatory diet.  

Diet Tips

For more diet tips, Dr. Carolyn Dean personally recommends linking to the website of Dr. Jason Fung, also known as The Diet Doctor. Dr. Jason Fung is a Canadian nephrologist and the leading expert on how to fast the right way.  

People have to take responsibility for their health on so many levels. A Naturopath or a Holistic doctor each has their way of running things. They have their line of supplements, so do your research.   

“When you take charge of your body and provide it with the best absorbable basic nutrient building blocks, you can overcome most health problems,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.   

Additional Resources 

Aside from Dr. Carolyn Dean’s impressive list of published books, you can also tune in to her 2-hour call-in radio show at www.achieveradio.com, Mondays at 4 pm PST. She also has an amazing blog filled with informative articles that will help you find your way to better health so check it out!

52. 226 Boomers and Millennials, The Demographics and Future of Holistic Medicine, Health, Food, and Biotech, with Demographer and Author Kenneth Gronbach and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Books:

“Upside: Profiting from the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead” http://amzn.to/2EvnXf0

"The Age Curve: How To Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm" http://amzn.to/2sjSbMT

 

Demography 

http://learntruehealth.com/demography/

Demography plays a big part in understanding populations all over the world. Several agencies provide updated data that prove shifts in demography affect health systems. To know more about how demography changes our lives, demographer Kenneth Gronbach will explain all of the factors that influence the world population in this episode.  

Advertising Industry  

Kenneth Gronbach shares that before he got into demographics research, we were working in the advertising and marketing industry from 1979 to 1991. His most prominent client was selling American Honda motorcycles and represented 140 dealers from the tip of Maine, Pittsburg and Washington D.C.  

The motorcycles were shipped from Japan, and they were selling like hotcakes since 1986. When they stumbled on a sales problem in 1986, Kenneth Gronbach and his team decided to reduce the price of the motorcycles. They also developed scooters in an attempt to revive the market.   

But their efforts were futile. By 1992, the industry’s Japanese brands fell by 80% which left them clueless. Eventually, it led them to close dealerships.  

Discovering Demographics  

Kenneth Gronbach recalls that he first stumbled on the importance of demographics in 1996 when he was in his office reading a full-page editorial.  That editorial indicted the whole Generation X by labeling them as slackers, lazy, and couch potatoes because they were allegedly not performing at the level of the Baby Boomers.   

Generation X are those people who were born between 1965 to 1984. A skeptic of the editorial, Kenneth Gronbach called his research department and asked them to research everything about Generation X.    

Generation X Revelation  

The report from Kenneth Gronbach’s research department was surprising.  The research team said that apparently, Generation X would never perform at the level of the Baby Boomers.    

According to the report, Generation X was not lazy. There were just fewer babies born from 1965 to 1984 than there were in 1945 to 1964. Boomers are bouncing off to 80 million, and Generation X is only 69 million.  

“So I think we solved the issue with motorcycle sales. Because if Generation X is 11 to 12% smaller, a 25% reduction in the size of the population will wipe out any market,” said Kenneth Gronbach.  

Effects of Generation X  

Generation X made a significant impact in population. Kenneth Gronbach says they shut down maternity wards and hospitals because they weren’t needed. Research reports indicate that the Baby Boomers were producing way over 4 million babies a year while Generation X dropped to 3 million babies a year. As a result, they also closed 30% of the public schools.  

Kenneth Gronbach also said that Detroit did not figure out why they couldn’t sell the same number of highly profitable SUVs to this new Generation X. This is because nobody bothered to count them.  

“Adding on to the problem was that in 2008 when Baby Boomers were bumping up against retirement and had their entire retirement in their home equity,” said Kenneth Gronbach. “Baby Boomers decided it was time to get the equity out and move to Florida. And they did so in massive numbers.”  

Labor Problem  

Another important situation affected by the demographics shift is labor. Kenneth Gronbach says that Generation X is currently people aged 34 to 53 years old. It is a small generation. And because Generation X was missing 9 or 10 million people, just in time for the Baby Boomers to demand services, labor was in a jam.  

“Immigrants from Mexico came in and took a lot of the entry-level jobs. Without Latinos, we wouldn’t have enough babies now to sustain our country and culture,” said Kenneth Gronbach.   

He adds,”If you look at the lion’s share of the Latinos in the United States, we have a huge block that is currently 34 to 53 years old. And the ones that stayed were socio-economically advancing which is wonderful. Culturally, they are a perfect match for our country.”  

Apparently, in France, the indigenous folks did not produce enough children, so they didn’t have enough labor. On the contrary, in 2007, the United States broke the live birth record. It was first set in 1957 when there were 4.3 million Boomers. In 2007, it grew to  4,316,000 babies where 25% were Latinos.    

Diving Deep   

Once Kenneth Gronbach understood the power of demographics shift, he went into 21 years of research. He eventually got to meet Dr. Nicolas Eberstadt who got his degree from Harvard University and is the State Department Demographer. 

Upon comparing data, Kenneth Gronbach and Dr. Nicolas Eberstadt concluded that their findings are the same. Dr. Nicolas Eberstadt even commended Kenneth Gronbach’s research data because it combined demography and marketing, something the State Department wasn’t capable of doing.  

Crime Rate  

Kenneth Gronbach also revealed that women are less likely to commit crimes compared to men. He says crime is committed by men aged between 15 to 30 years old, who are currently considered Millenials. He also forecasts that the rate will continue to rise as years pass by.  

Millenial Problem  

“The population of Millenials is larger than the Boomers. Most of my demographics is Generation X,” said Kenneth Gronbach. “The old end are just starting households and marrying late. They couldn’t leave home early in life because they’re not welcomed into the labor force.”  

Kenneth Gronbach explains that 50% of Millenials coming out of college are unemployed. Boomers are not leaving the labor force because they couldn’t afford to. Things have indeed turned around. The Boomers are currently aged 54 to 73, and they are retiring a little bit late.  

Demographics And Health  

Kenneth Gronbach predicts that the health choices of Millenials will significantly impact the health industry. He says Millenials prefer cleaner food and are more inclined to GMO-free, and responsibly-sourced animal products.  

“They are going to shift. I speak to farmers all the time and tell them they have to deal with GMO issues because the market is going to force them to do that,” said Kenneth Gronbach.   

Silent Generation  

Between 1925 and 1944, we produced a generation called the Silent Generation. According to Kenneth Gronbach, there are only 50 million of them, and these are primarily Generation X’s parents.   

The Silent Generation followed the generation before them which was the G.I. Generation from 1905 to1924. The G.I. Generation was the generation that fought in World War 2. It was a massive generation of about 70 million and following them was a tiny generation.   

“So the needs and demands of the Silent Generation who were born from 1925 to 1944 were small. Then come along the Boomers who demanded more service. Generation X on the other hand, needed more labor,” said Kenneth Gronbach.  

Distribution Problem  

Data shows we produce enough food to feed 14 billion people and we throw half of it away. So Kenneth Gronbach believes we don’t have a food problem but rather a distribution problem.   

It started when something happened in 1964. Half of the women in the world dropped below replacement level fertility which is 2.2 kids. And it never looked back. The rate of growth of our population is declining.   

“We will probably grow to 10 or 12 billion by 2050 or 2060. And then the population of the earth is going to begin to subside,” said Kenneth Gronbach. “But the problem is, the majority of the earth is market economies which rely on consumers.”  

Fertility Issues  

In the recent Heavy Metals Summit, we saw that a lot of factors are affected by the presence of heavy metals in the environment we live in and the lifestyle we have.   

So we also need to consider the outside effects on fertility when we talk of demographics. One of the external forces affecting fertility dramatically is that women are waiting to get pregnant. And the older you get, the hard it is to get pregnant.   

But that’s a challenge nowadays because both parents need to work. And the added stress contributes to fertility issues.   

Housing Problem  

Kenneth Gronbach says there are currently 330 million people in the US and 10 million of these are illegal. But demographers count illegals because they are in the country.   

Furthermore, Kenneth Gronbach shares that the number of housing units that are available in the U.S. is about 155 million. The two most substantial parts of our population are Baby Boomers numbering to 80 million and their kids, numbering 68 million. 

“A lot of people in their 20s are living at home because they are not welcome in the labor force. So they’re moving out, starting households and getting married takes longer. The problem is because a lot of Boomers are refusing to die and get old,” said Kenneth Gronbach.  

Currently, Kenneth Gronbach says we are 25 million housing units short of our needs. And the demand for housing is going to spike for the next few years.  

Kenneth Gronbach’s Books  

Demographics is such an exciting topic, and it will make you understand how population changes generation after generation. To those who would like to know more about demographics, Kenneth Gronbach has written several books that have proved to be an excellent resource.  

Kenneth Gronbach’s books include: 

Upside: Profiting from the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead 

Decades of Differences: Making It Work

The Age Curve: How To Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm  

Whether it be through his books or speaking engagements, Kenneth Gronbach says that the primary aim of his work is to educate, entertain and inspire people.  

Looking Ahead  

Looking ahead, Kenneth Gronbach says that compared to any generation in history, the Millenials are going to be infinitely more respectful of each other. He also forecasts that Houston, Texas will continue to attract Millenials because of the quality of life, cost of living and job opportunities.  

As far as commerce is concerned, he cites three categories where there is a significant possibility for growth:  

Healthcare – demand for better food Eldercare – going to be off the charts Deathcare- the need for more funeral homes and crematoriums 

“There will be a diversity of cultures in the future. The power of shifting demography changes commerce like medicine, food, and everything that we consume,” said Kenneth Gronbach.  

Bio

 Kenneth Gronbach is an internationally respected demographer who has been able to forecast societal, commercial, economic, cultural and political phenomena with uncanny accuracy. His unusual blend of marketing savvy and common sense demography, based on twenty years of proprietary demographic study, set him apart. Kenneth Gronbach keynotes all over the United States and does customized demographic research.  

You will find that Kenneth Gronbach’s stable position that the United States is the best Nation on earth and his firm belief that the country’s best days are ahead seasoned his spirited presentations with an apparent pro-American enthusiasm.  

Kenneth Gronbach built KGA Advertising, INC., a $40 million consumer/retail advertising agency, from the ground up in the 1980’s and 1990’s. One of his clients, a fashion apparel retailer, grew from $10 million in annual sales to over $400 million on Kenneth Gronbach’s watch.  

Kenneth Gronbach’s hobbies include building hot rod Mustangs and Porsches. He and his family enjoy boating and fishing on Long Island Sound.   

Kenneth Gronbach graduated from California State University at Long Beach and currently lives in Connecticut with his Baby Boomer wife of 41 years and two Generation Y daughters.

Book: Dirty Genes http://amzn.to/2nHlhBf

Dirty Genes 

http://learntruehealth.com/dirty-genes/

Dirty genes is a significant factor why we do not reach an optimal level of health. Our body needs healthy genes to function properly. But unfortunately, many people are still unaware of this vital aspect of health.  That’s why we’re so lucky to have Dr. Ben Lynch here with us today to explain everything you need to know about dirty genes. 

Childhood Interest  

Dr. Ben Lynch was 16 years old when he was first introduced to biochemistry in high school. He thought it was the best class he ever had because it taught him about how the body works.   

Because Dr. Ben Lynch became fascinated with how our body was wired, he went on to pursue a medical degree in college. But it was not long before he realized that standard medicine and the conventional route was not for him.  

The turning point in his career path was when Dr. Ben Lynch got sick during a trip to India. Finding a cure for his illness, he was introduced to a peculiar form of medicine. Dr. Ben Lynch recalls that the one treating him checked his tongue, pulse, and gave a weird prescription. Surprisingly, he felt better after 40 minutes!   

That experience eventually led Dr. Ben Lynch to pursue a career as a Naturopathic Doctor by getting his degree at Bastyr University. But Dr. Ben Lynch still felt it wasn’t enough until he developed an interest in Environmental Medicine. This led him to discover epigenetics.  

Focus On Epigenetics  

Dr. Ben Lynch was very much concerned about how a poor environment can make people very ill and develop dirty genes.  When he learned that genes were a significant factor in the entire process, he started to dive deeper into genetic research.  

“Our genes require tools. Most of the tools come from the food that we eat. If we are providing our body with healthful, wholesome foods, our genes get the tools they can use to function. Such as protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, water, air, and sunlight,” said Dr. Ben Lynch. 

He adds, “We give genes those tools through nutrition, breathing properly, hydration and avoid doing stuff that makes them do excessive work like chemicals in the environment, wi-fi signals, and polluted air.”  

And that’s so true! I first heard about epigenetics from Dr. Joe Wallach. He wrote the book, Epigenetics: The Death of the Genetic Theory of Disease Transmission. The book explains how nutrition supports the genes to be healthy. It’s a very informative book, and I recommend all you listeners to include this in your reading list.    

Air Purifiers  

Pollutants in the environment are unavoidable. But because they cause dirty genes, Dr. Ben Lynch says one way to clear the air is using air purifiers. Air purifiers can clear the air of chemicals and elements like smoke, pollen, and dust.    

Good brands of air purifiers include IQAir and Alen Air. But Dr. Ben Lynch puts in a word of caution if and when you decide to get one.  

“Air purifiers have an engine.  I recommend plugging it in and turn on outside to let it off the gas,” advises Dr. Ben Lynch. “Because nowadays, everything is wrapped in plastic. When you turn it on, there are so many volatile organic compounds that are being emitted.”  

Dr. Ben Lynch also advises avoiding having carpets if you want to avoid having dirty genes. Because apparently, carpets are sponges that hold dirt. There are also a lot of other odd compounds in carpets. It traps dust and humidity, attracts molds and dust mites.   

Gas And Cooking  

We also know that gas is a toxic substance.  That’s why Dr. Ben Lynch strictly advises that gas is something that needs to be outside. So, if you’re cooking, you need to be using your exhaust fan.   

“Smoke from oils have formaldehyde, destroy genes and burdens the body. Then a lot of people are taking antacids, which are inhibiting their primary detoxification system,” said Dr. Ben Lynch. “People are also loading up with Tylenol. This depletes primary antioxidants. So be wary of what you buy over the counter.”  

Dr. Ben Lynch says it is also bad to inhale smoke from cars. The carbon monoxide binds to the hemoglobin. And when carbon monoxide seeps into our tissues, it can eventually kill us.   

“You increase cardiovascular disease risk from inhaling smoke. People who are exercising in more polluted areas are also increasing cardiovascular risk,” Dr. Ben Lynch said. “That has to do with a gene called NOS 3, which is an important gene to keep clean.”   

Dirty Genes Course  

To those who would like to know more about the causes of dirty genes, do sign up for Dr. Ben Lynch’s course. The course provides a lot of insights on how to optimize your eating habits, and to have a better experience without supplements.   

“The course guides people through the fundamentals of life. It also educates people why we need folate to make our body function right,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.  

According to Dr. Ben Lynch, folate is essential in things like:  

regulating white blood cells  fighting infection  regulating red blood cells so we can breathe  regulate our platelets  nourish our neurotransmitters so we can think  helps repair DNA when chemicals invade into our system  essential in kids’ growth  makes skin healthy since our skin creates skin cells all the time   Importance Of Folic Acid  

Folic acid is a form of folate and is one of the B vitamins that we need. The U.S. recommended daily allowance of folic acid is 400 micrograms. These may be gained through food or dietary supplements.  

“Folic acid binds preferentially to the folate receptors and folate transporters in the body. It goes through the DHFR (dihydrofolate reductase) gene.  This gene can handle 200 micrograms of folic acid before it gets saturated,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.  

But Dr. Ben Lynch says some people have a genetic problem with this particular gene. Apparently, the folic acid can’t get through the DHFR gene. It has to go somewhere, so it ends up staying in the blood. Researchers call it unmetabolized folic acid.  

“What unmetabolized folic acid does, is that it will get to your folate transport protein. Folic acid blocks transportation of the folate and getting inside the cell,” explains Dr. Ben Lynch.   

Dr. Ben Lynch also reveals that people can be functionally folate-deficient. This is because they are functionally depriving their cells of the number one type of folate in their body which is methylfolate. Common side effects include experiencing brain fog, moodiness, and an unexplainable toxic feeling.  

StrateGene  

Ready to dive deeper into how genes work? Dr. Ben Lynch developed a genetic report called StrateGene. It uses 23andMe instead of ancestry because according to Dr. Ben Lynch, ancestry mainly has ancestral DNA. In order words, he says you don’t have clinically relevant genes on www.ancestry.com to run through a genetic report.   

StrateGene also provides you a map so you can see what dirties up the genes. It also provides a quick glance at how vitamins, minerals, medication, and chemicals interfere with certain things.  

“If you see any condition run in your family, there is most likely a genetic component there. And if you lead a lifestyle that is healthy, the chances of you struggling with that condition is lower,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.  

But Dr. Ben Lynch says the more important factor is finding out what genes you inherited that is probably causing your illness. Knowing which genes are born dirty can give you an insight on where you should be spending more time and caution. And the cool thing is that you can support yourself through very targeted actions that will help the weaker genes.   

What are Dirty Genes?  

Now many of you may be wondering what dirty genes are. Dr. Ben Lynch explains that dirty genes are genes that are not functioning at it’s best. One can inherit dirty genes from your parents. And it usually does not function as well as it should be in your particular environment.   

“You can inherit it. Genes also get dirty by sitting in the garage after turning on your car or turning on your gas stove and not turning the hood on. Dirty genes are also from eating unhealthy or from chronic stress,” said Dr. Ben Lynch. 

Juicing, Raw Foods And Cooking  

Dr. Ben Lynch advises that if you cook your leafy green vegetables, steam them for a short period. That’s where you’ll get your folate. Apparently, the longer you cook, the more your folate will be destroyed.   

“Leafy greens are great. But if you have a weak constitution and digestion, eating raw, cold vegetables can be hard on you. So you might want to steam them,” Dr. Ben Lynch advises. ” If you have a frail palate, steam veggies and have soup. Keep in mind your body temperature, the power of your digestion and how you feel after. Listen to your body.”  

Dr. Ben Lynch claims to love juicing as well. He says he prefers using a Blendtec over Vitamix because it is not as noisy. I like Blendtec, too. But I have heard feedback from friends that it breaks down.   

Incidentally, I had the Vitamix expert Lenny Gale on my show a couple of times.  His website Life is No Yoke is packed with info on the different Vitamix models as well as yummy recipes using Vitamix. So I invite everyone to check out his website.   

Histamine Intolerance  

Dr. Ben Lynch also recommends a good brand of probiotics to keep our microbiome healthy. Some health conditions like headaches, runny nose, asthma and leaky gut is a sign that one may have histamine intolerance.  

Histamine in the stomach and small intestines is good because it stimulates the stomach acid, movement of stool and immune response. But it is not good to have too much histamine in our gut because it could lead to digestive issues like diarrhea, and acid reflux.  

Link Between Vaccines And Genes  

Dr. Ben Lynch shares that vaccines have a role in specific environments for certain people. But he believes vaccines are hurting our kids and pregnant women. The same goes for flu shots.   

Ideally, Dr. Ben Lynch recommends that parents should wait until their child is at least 12 years old before getting them vaccinated instead of when they are newborns. This is because any heavy metal will interfere with a plethora of genes.   

“You can take all the supplements you want, but if you have metals, genes won’t work well. Avoid metals like aluminum because they interfere with neurotransmitters in the brain,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.  

He adds, “I am not pro-vaccine, but I don’t think they are all bad. I just think if we do use them, they should be used selectively.”  

I recently had a great interview with Dr. Paul Thomas on vaccines, and the need to have a vaccine-friendly plan. We talked extensively about choosing when and which vaccines are safe so do check out that episode as well.  

Dr. Benjamin Lynch, ND received his Cell and Molecular Biology, BS from the University of Washington and his doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND) from Bastyr University. His passion for identifying the cause of disease-directed him towards nutrigenomics and methylation dysfunction.   

Currently, Dr. Benjamin Lynch researches, writes and presents worldwide on the topic of MTHFR, methylation defects and genetic control. He is the President of www.SeekingHealth.com, a supplement company oriented towards disease prevention and health promotion. He also founded and directed www.seekinghealth.org, an educational institution providing specialized training for both health professionals and consumers.  He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife, Nadia, and three boys, Tasman, Mathew and Theodor.

BOOK: The Vaccine-Friendly Plan: Dr. Paul’s Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health—From Pregnancy Through Your Child’s Teen Years - http://amzn.to/2GHYwVV

Safe Vaccines 

http://learntruehealth.com/safe-vaccines/

Safe vaccines are beneficial only if we are informed and educated about what exactly are we being injected with. My guest today, Dr. Paul Thomas is neither pro or anti-vaccine. Now, how is that possible? Well, you’re in for a real treat today learning what exactly are safe vaccines.  

Growing Up In Africa  

Dr. Paul Thomas grew up in a village in Africa since his parents were missionaries. At four years old, he became used to living in a hut with no running water nor electricity. Despite that, Dr. Paul Thomas says his childhood was terrific. Being culturally immersed, he even thought of himself as African.   

“Coming from a different culture like that, you are inherently just a little more open to other ideas. One gift my parents gave me was to question authority. That was instilled in me since I was a student in middle school,” recalls Dr. Paul Thomas.  

It’s interesting to note that Dr. Paul Thomas even went to high school with the daughters of former president Nelson Mandela. Fast forward years later, Dr. Paul Thomas pursued a medical degree at Dartmouth Medical School in the United States and eventually took his residency in California.   

Residency Years  

During his residency in the mid-1980s, Dr. Paul Thomas says that’s where he first saw benefits of vaccines. Pediatric hospitals were filled with children who had various diseases, and meningitis was particularly prevalent.   

Administering vaccines for meningitis became a routine.  Dr. Paul Thomas said that studies even showed that it was effective. The HIB vaccine added later on to the vaccine schedule, and it was also effective in reducing meningitis. Naturally, it became apparent that those were safe vaccines.  

The Fine Line  

Dr. Paul Thomas also says doctors are only taught benefits of the vaccines and not the side effects. They see worse cases in hospitals. Hence, they get the mentality that they need to prevent these things. Dr. Paul Thomas says this is also why doctors have a hard time letting go of this “vaccine miracle” concept.   

“Honestly if you ask pediatricians today, most will tell you that the most preventative health thing that they can do, gives vaccines. That’s how they are trained,” said Dr. Paul Thomas.   

Autism And MMR  

So many studies have come out over the years arguing on what are safe vaccines. It’s a never-ending debate. Dr. Paul Thomas has read so many materials on safe vaccines, and one, in particular, intrigued him.  

Dr. Paul Thomas across the article by Dr. Andrew Wakefield in 2000, where Dr. Andrew Wakefield wrote about the MMR vaccine and autism. According to Dr. Paul Thomas, Dr. Andrew Wakefield didn’t say the MMR vaccine caused autism. That article which was later on retracted, only suggested that perhaps there might be a link. Dr. Andrew Wakefield was just presenting some case studies in that particular piece.  

“I didn’t think vaccines were a part of the problem of autism. In my experience, I saw zero cases of autism in the four years I was at Dartmouth Medical School in the early 1980s,” said Dr. Paul Thomas.  

But Dr. Paul Thomas also shares that during his 3-year residency from 1985 to 1988, he did see a couple of cases of PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified).  PDD-NOS is the equivalent of the autism spectrum child today.   

Despite that, Dr. Paul Thomas says it was nothing like the severe cases these days where you see a child who is normal about a year of age and then regresses to being non-verbal, miserable and disconnected.   

Ideally, Dr. Paul Thomas says that we should only be administered one aluminum-containing vaccine at a time. Furthermore, he advises waiting till after age three before a child is given the MMR vaccine.   

Shifting to Alternative Medicine  

Dr. Paul Thomas started knowing more about alternative medicine around November 2007. He became active in attending conferences and learning about Integrative Medicine.    

Dr. Paul Thomas remembers that the turning point in his career was seeing a two-year-old patient in a push stroller.  The toddler’s head was going back and forth. Dr. Paul Thomas takes pride in being able to connect with kids. But in this case, he wasn’t successful.  

“I couldn’t connect. It was the fourth case in four years. That was the last straw for me,” Dr. Paul Thomas said. “So I told my partners I would stop giving Hepatitis B vaccine to newborns and slow down the vaccine schedule. Within a month, I was ousted from the partnership after a secret meeting.”   

Blessing In Disguise  

Looking back, Dr. Paul Thomas says being ousted from the medical practice partnership was the biggest blessing of his life. Six months later, Dr. Paul Thomas opened Integrative Pediatrics, which is his pediatric practice today.    

From a thousand patients, Dr. Paul Thomas says it grew to over 13,000 patients in the next few years. He even had to be closed to new patients for several years, because his practice couldn’t keep up with the demand.   

Safe Vaccines  

Dr. Paul Thomas says that generally speaking, what people look for is really informed consent. This means people want to have the ability of choice, ability to have a doctor who listens to them and a doctor who’s educated and informed on what exactly are safe vaccines.   

“You don’t have to dig far to know that vaccines have caused tremendous harm. Have they had benefits? Absolutely. Which is why I remain somewhat on the neutral side in saying that I am not anti-vaccine,” said Dr. Paul Thomas. “I’m pro-safe vaccines. I’ve progressed along to the point where I now don’t believe there is such a thing.”  

In other words, Dr. Paul Thomas says it’s impossible to have 100% safe vaccines. This is because we are injecting things that stimulate the immune system. This alone poses some benefits and risks. Apart from that, Dr. Paul Thomas says we’re also injecting toxins and elements that overstimulate the immune system.  

Informed Choices  

Dr. Paul Thomas reveals that medical students are not taught that there is a vaccine compensation program. Doctors aren’t trained about the vaccine adverse events reporting system.   

Furthermore, Dr. Paul Thomas says it is essential that we need to look for a doctor who asks the ‘why’ questions. And do our research as well.  

The Vaccine-Friendly Plan   

Dr. Paul Thomas’ book is about a safe and effective approach to immunity and health.  It covers a vaccine-friendly plan from pregnancy to a child’s teenage years. The book is really for people who genuinely want to follow the CDC schedule.  

The guiding principle of the book is to minimize toxins, minimize risks, and still get some protection. Dr. Paul Thomas also singles out that aluminum is toxic, yet if you postpone some of the childhood vaccines until they’re older, it will make sense for a lot of reasons.   

“I wrote my book because after I started my practice, I instituted what I called the Vaccine-Friendly Plan. Don’t do vaccines during pregnancy,” advises Dr. Paul Thomas. “No Hepatitis vaccine until you’re at least pre-teen unless the birth mother has Hepatitis B. And there’s no need for polio because it’s not infectious.”  

Vaccine-Friendly Plan Limitations   

Under the plan, Dr. Paul Thomas has gathered data from over 1000 patients.  From the batch, 894 patients were vaccinated, and 238 patients weren’t vaccinated.   

From that data, Dr. Paul Thomas found out that all of the patients with autism was in the group that was most vaccinated. On the contrary, there was no autism in the unvaccinated group.  

“But a little caveat. There were 3 cases in the Vaccine-Friendly Plan, of children who were starting to show autistic-like symptoms such as decreased eye contact and language delay,” shares Dr. Paul Thomas. “Anytime I would see any delay; I would immediately stop further vaccines. I wish doctors and family practitioners would follow that principle.”  

Dr. Paul Thomas also reports that three kids in the Vaccine-Friendly Plan and five kids in the vaccinated group returned to normal. This was after Dr. Paul Thomas stopped administering the rest of the vaccines.  

Hepatitis Vaccine  

Dr. Paul Thomas believes that Hepatitis A Vaccine is unnecessary. In fact, Dr. Paul Thomas has not encountered a Hepatitis A case in his entire medical career.   

For children, in particular, Dr. Paul Thomas says Hepatitis A is a benign, mild, cold, flu-like illness. It is harmless and apparently, we develop a natural immunity to it. Hence, we do not need a vaccine for it.   

Dr. Paul Thomas recalls that it was around 2001 that doctors were giving Hepatitis B  vaccine to teenagers. Years before that, the vaccine was only given to healthcare workers.   

So scientifically speaking, Dr. Paul Thomas says it made no sense injecting a newborn.  This is because babies have an immature immune system and it is unnecessary to vaccinate them with a vaccine preventing a disease that they won’t see until they become teenagers.  

“We already know from all sorts of vaccine research that the younger you are, you get less of a protective antibody response,” said Dr. Paul Thomas. “This is why we do all these boosters for these childhood vaccines because we get such a weak response when we’re very young.”  

Chicken Pox Vaccine  

Dr. Paul Thomas says the whole situation surrounding chicken pox is tragic. He shares that before 1965, we all had the chicken pox. We mainly had to be around people who had chicken pox to boost our immunity.   

Since we had this vaccine program, the medical field then started adding a booster around 1995. Dr. Paul Thomas said the vaccine did pretty well for a long time. Shingles were in fact, only something that old people got.   

“Before the chicken pox vaccine was instituted as a national program, we had about 50 deaths per year in the U.S. from chicken pox. Not many died due to shingles. Now, it’s the opposite. There are fewer deaths from chicken pox and more from shingles. Shingles even occur in children now.”  

Big Bucks  

We all know that the medical field is a lucrative business. Pharmaceutical companies earn a lot from selling medication and doctors are often willing to grab the chance to earn a lot from the medication they prescribe to patients.  

“Two big incentives are pushing doctors and hospitals to do vaccines. One is financial, and the other is quality measures,” reveals Dr. Paul Thomas.   

He adds, “The markup on vaccines is as low as $1. But an average of $15 per shot is given to doctors, not counting all the child visits. Other states have a $200 per patient bonus by having children fully-vaccinated.”  

Herd Immunity  

Dr. Paul Thomas says that in medical school, students are taught that by vaccinating the population, you are protecting everybody including those not yet vaccinated. In some cases, this is true. But in most cases, Dr. Paul Thomas says it’s completely wrong.   

Dr. Paul Thomas cites Hepatitis B as an example wherein the herd immunity is not applicable. Essentially, you can’t have herd immunity if the vaccine is not working. But some data shows vaccinated people can still carry and transmit disease. So, they are contributing to infecting the herd.   

Another study shows results of patients who had the influenza vaccine. Apparently, when a vaccinated person coughs, Dr. Paul Thomas says they are in fact, emitting 630% more influenza than an unvaccinated infected person.   

“Vaccines trigger an antibody response to one particular thing. It does nothing to boost the rest of your immune system,” Dr. Paul Thomas said. “The only way to know if the vaccine is truly improving our health would be through long-term studies, comparisons, and health outcomes over several years.”  

PHOI  

Dr. Paul Thomas has started a registry, the PHOI, to gather more information about vaccines.  It is also an excellent resource to find out what are the safe vaccines.   

“It’s not for everybody to sign up. Because to be a part of this registry, you have to be at present, in my clinic with a newborn. We are only registering newborns, and we are going to track their health for 18 years,” said Dr. Paul Thomas.  

Dr. Paul Thomas is happy to announce that there’s also another clinic in Houston that’s coming on board plus a couple more mainstream clinics. The goal is to look at all parameters that might affect health outcome.   

“There are plenty of things we can do, and a lot has to do with having a balanced immune s
