You can also get a great vitamin D spray for your kids and an outstanding liquid mineral supplement for your whole family. Immune-supportive activities would include resting, staying warm and doing things that make you happy. AVOID: Any form of sugar and juice (with the exception of the recipes listed below) Processed foods that contain flour Cow Dairy Eat: Lots of veggies! Protein-rich foods - in your case would be eggs and wild-caught fish as well as lentils. The immune system is made of, so it only makes sense to give the body what it needs. A colorful variety of veggies contains all of the antioxidants and immune boosting phytochemicals we need! Mushrooms and onions, for example, are excellent immune boosters. Below is my list of proven activities to help relieve the suffering and support your immune system in recovering faster. Do what you can, when you can. Relaxing and giving the body time to heal is the best thing you can do. The Cold Sock Treatment is a simple hydrotherapy technique that is especially effective for relieving nasal congestion in bed at night (frequently better than medications and without the side effects). It also helps to stimulate the immune system in the upper respiratory tract and is relaxing for aches and chills and helps bring on a more restful night’s sleep when sick. We find it helpful in such conditions as colds, "flu" (not the "stomach flu"), earaches, sore throats, and sinus infections. It is useful with people of any age from infants to the elderly. The Cold Sock Treatment is especially good to use with the nasal congestion of colds and influenza. You want to do this treatment for five or more nights in a row. And do it whenever you feel the onset of a cold or flu as sometimes it is all the stimulation your immune system needed to get the job done! Most sporting goods stores and some department stores carry wool socks. For small children you can use safety pins to hold a wool sock on that is too large, or rap wool cloth around each foot. For this treatment, you will need two pairs of large cotton socks and a pair of wool socks. They must be at least 90% cotton and 90% wool, respectively. Preparations: In the evening before going to bed, prepare by having two pairs of large cotton socks and a pair of wool socks. At least 1 hour before bed soak both pairs of cotton socks in cold water and place in the freezer. The wool socks are to remain dry and warm. Step 1. Remove socks from the freezer and add a bit of cold water to them to make them damp and malleable. Place the cold socks close to the basin or bathtub used in the next step. Note: If your feet are already warm (e.g., you have already been in bed, or you just took a hot bath) you can skip to Step 3. Step 2. Put your feet into a basin or bathtub of hot water to warm up your feet. Soak them for a few minutes until they are hot and pink. Step 3. Remove your feet from the hot water and quickly dry them off. Immediately put on the two pairs of cold, wet cotton socks, and then over them, put on the dry wool socks. Step 4. Go directly to bed and keep the feet covered through the night. The therapy does not work if you or your feet are uncovered, such as when walking around or sitting in a chair uncovered. Use extra blankets to create an artificial fever. See my instructions on creating a good fever using a hot bath and extra blankets below. When the Cold Sock Treatment procedure is followed correctly the feet will start warming up within a few minutes of getting covered in bed. The congestion will usually begin to be relieved within 30 minutes. It will often work better than a decongestant or antihistamine to alleviate congestion during sleep. Also, it is not uncommon to see a small child or infant fall immediately to sleep after they are put to bed with the Cold Sock Treatment. After approximately four hours the socks should be totally dry, the feet warm, and the symptoms will be much improved (if not gone). If necessary, the Cold Sock Treatment can be repeated through the night or used on consecutive nights. Just add more pairs of wet cotton socks to the freezer ion the evening if you want to repeat it a few times in the night. In repeating the treatment in the same night or if an illness starts during the night, it is not necessary to warm the feet in hot water since they will already be warm. Just apply the cold, wet socks and the dry wool socks and go back to bed, using extra covers to stay warm. And be sure to drink plenty of warm calming tea. Supporting A Healing Fever: We want to create an artificial fever to support the body in killing the germs! One thing that is very interesting about the immune system is there are powerful white blood cells that do not even turn on until the body is in a fever state. So doing things like hot baths, drinking hot fluids and saunas can help to stimulate all of our immune system to fight a cold or flu when we feel one coming on. Preparations: Prepare a bath as hot as you can stand it. Do not burn yourself but make it very warm. Keep the door to the bathroom closed while drawing the hot bath to keep the warm steam inside. You will want to breathe it in along with the essential oils you will place in the tub. Add 4 cups of Epsom salt, roughly half the bag, to the bath as the tub is filling up with hot water. In the kitchen prepare a large kettle of Throat Coat Tea or chamomile tea. I found I need to use two bags of the Throat Coat tea for 16oz of water so you will want to buy a few boxes of it as during one bad cold you may go through a few boxes because it really does bring relief from the scratchy, itchy throat! You can also make this concoction: 4 cups water The juice of 2 lemons One teaspoon Cayenne 1 thumb of freshly grated ginger Stevia, maple syrup or honey if you need it to taste good. However be cautious as germs feed off of sugar, so stevia is the safest option. Simmer the water and add the ginger and Cayenne. Then remove from heat and the lemon and optional sweetener. This helps with sore throats and congestion. Bring a large mug of your hot drink to the bath. Have ready several blankets in your bed as you will create a cocoon once you come out of the bath. Before getting into the bath add ten drops of the OLBAS and stir the water to make sure it mixes in and that the salt has dissolved. Close the bathroom door, so you can breathe in the OLBAS and warm, moist air while in the bath. Get in, relax and drink your hot beverage. See if you can get your husband to refill your drink. Soak for 20min minimum. You can add more hot water to the bath to increase the temp as you will become accustomed to the heat. When you start to sweat stay in 5 min longer, then you can get out. Do not stay in longer than 60min. Make sure you have drunk at least 2 mugs of hot tea while in the bath. If at any point you feel dizzy or light-headed, ask for assistance in getting out of the bath. You can try adding some cold water to the bath to bring down the temp a bit to see if the dizziness resolves itself. Make sure your husband is within earshot in case you need help. SOmetimes hot baths can make people feel light headed when they stand so to prevent an accident, please be aware that you may need to ask for a hand in getting out of the bath safely. If you develop a headache while in the hot bath, take a hand towel, the kind that is long enough to wrap around your neck, soak it with cold water from the tub's faucet and wrap it around your neck. This will cool the blood flowing to your brain and trick your brain into thinking you are not as hot as you are. Have another mug of hot tea waiting for you by your bedside. When you are ready to get out of the bath, towel off quickly and wrap yourself in one of your many blankets, then get into bed and create a cocoon. Cover everything, even your head. Just have your face exposed so you can breathe and sip tea. At this point, you can do the cold sock therapy as well. Get your husband to bring you the frozen socks and dry wool socks. Stay bundled up for at least an hour. You will begin to sweat and feel feverish. Fight the urge to throw off the blankets! You want to create a little sauna in your bed. This is stimulating your immune system to kill the germs AND germs also cannot live in a feverish environment as their proteins denature at higher temps. SO they literally explode and break apart when we get too warm for them to handle. YAY! Visualize your white blood cell soldiers coming to life and winning the battle with the bugs as you lay in your cocoon. At this point, you can fall asleep like this, or if you did this during the daytime you can take a nap or simply get out of bed after the hour is up. You will want to shower off when you do get out of bed, and likely the blanket you initially wrapped yourself in will be wet from sweat. Still, bundle up and keep as warm as possible both day and night for the next week. You can do this daily while your cold or flu symptoms are around. Please be sure to drink extra water and make it warm or hot instead of cold. OLBAS Steam Towel Treatment for Sinus congestion: You need: A large bowl or pot OLBAS Boiling hot water Large towel Tissues Place something safe on your kitchen table to protect the table from the hot bowl or pot. Place the big bowl or pot with boiling water on the table and sit in front of it. Have more water boiling in a kettle on the stove. Add 1 or 2 drops of the OLBAS to the hot water Take your large towel and put it over your head and over the pot making a tent to trap the steam. Your head is now leaning over the pot directly above it. Keep your eyes closed as the vapors will sting your eyes. Take a deep breath through your nose. Do this for the next 2 minutes. Then remove the towel. Blow your nose a bunch, cough up any mucus you feel the need to expel and repeat by adding only one drop of OLBAS this time. After a minute or two add more hot water from the stove and repeat a third time adding 1 or 2 drops of OLBAS, using the towel as a tent and inhaling all the vapors through your nose. Taking breaks to blow and clear your sinuses. You will want to do this more than once a day as your sinuses may refill in a few hours. Be sure to do it before bed if you are not going to take the hot bath I have outlined above. After you have completed the OLBAS treatment and you have blown everything out of your nose use the colloidal silver nasal spray liberally. With each spray change the angle of your head, so you start to look up making the last spray so that you are looking directly at the ceiling. This angle change as you spray and inhale into your nose will help to direct the solution into all sinus passages. Even when you have not done the OLBAS treatment, please use the silver spray liberally through the day. I have killed sinus infections with this one supplement alone! You also want to keep a bottle by your bedside and do it whenever you wake in the night to blow your nose. Three to Five sprays per nostril while inhaling. And you can also spray the back of your throat while inhaling as well. FRESH THYME TEA: This is a WONDERFUL herb for expelling congestion and also as an antiviral. You will take 4 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Remove from heat. Add half a package of fresh thyme and cover for 6 minutes. Serve with lemon or honey or just drink plain. You want to drink this earlier in the day as it will stimulate you to cough because it loosens the mucus and helps get rid of it! If drank too late into the night the coughing might keep you awake. The thyme does not cause you to cough. It causes the mucus to break up and move. Your body then wants to cough it up. So best if you are not lying down when that happens. Because this works so well as a decongestant, I like to drink about 8 cups of this a day when I am really congested, so I will easily go through two to four packets of fresh thyme during a bad cold.

314 PART TWO Using Intuition, Energy, Ancient Medicine, and Science To Discover What The Body Needs, Founder of PlantTalk, AnimalTalk, and BodyTalk System Dr. John Veltheim

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE! Join My New Year's Health Transformation Workshop Now: http://learntruehealth.com/yes   Body Talk System: https://www.bodytalksystem.com   AnimalTalk http://learntruehealth.com/animaltalk AnimalTalk and PlantTalk were also founded by my guest, Dr. John Veltheim.  Understanding the connection that we have with animals and plants can affect our well-being in some way.  That’s why Dr. John Veltheim is still with us in part two of our interview to explain how our brain works and how our body responds accordingly. Left and Right Brain Dr. John Veltheim explains that our right brain is very much the intuitive side or the higher learning side. Left brain, on the other hand, is more practical. He cites a Cambridge study wherein experts studied human skulls. The study found that in the 1400s to 1600s, the right brain is bigger than the left. That’s why religion dominated during those time. “If you’re a scientist, you usually got killed for it. In the 1800s, science started to win out. Due to development that people liked,” said Dr. John Veltheim.  He adds, “So, we saw this dominance from right brain to left brain going into the 1900s. There was a transition inside the skull. But in the meantime, it destroyed the relationship between the left and right brain because they had to move physically and got out of alignment from one another.” Understanding Brain Response In the same Cambridge study, Dr. John Veltheim said it showed that when the right brain is sending signals to the left, the left brain usually responded. But the response was to destroy or negate the information coming from the right brain. That explains the battle of the sexes. It’s either the right-brain female or left-brain male. “So, while this adoption occurs physically, we have this problem of electromagnetic frequencies. The technique we do in reaching the brain and tapping it out restores and increases the brain function dramatically and keeps stress levels down,” Dr. John Veltheim said. BodyTalk is a combination of ancient practices with modern science. It promotes total wellness naturally. Furthermore, Dr. John Veltheim says it is a first-aid kit for the body to compensate for the changes occurring in the brain and all the stuff in the outside.  AnimalTalk Most of us who love our pets so doubt can feel a strong connection with them. It is invisible to the naked eye, but we can affect each other’s well-being.  Especially with dogs, sometimes they would get sick so that we wouldn’t fall ill. AnimalTalk can help you understand your connection with your beloved pet in a profound way. The sessions can significantly benefit the energy around you and your pet, as well as your surrounding environment. According to Dr. John Veltheim, doing AnimalTalk three to four times for about three days can be transformational. This is because he says animals respond beautifully. Dr. John Veltheim recalled a time when he was invited to a rehabilitation area for rhinos and elephants in Nairobi. Those animals were abandoned as babies and left to die. They would not eat or drink. But Dr. John Veltheim applied the principles of AnimalTalk, worked on them, and the animals, fortunately, responded so well.  BodyTalk Courses BodyTalk Access, in particular, is currently being taught by hundreds of people all over the world.  It is affordable and easy to learn because the training manual is clear. Dr. John Veltheim says that even children can quickly learn on the same day. “There are first-aid treatments that you can use. It’s designed to help injuries like a sprained ankle, and it gets better faster,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “We encourage people to do it regularly on each other and their family because it is maintenance. It’s not a be all end all. But it is designed to be a very helpful home tool.” Dr. John Veltheim says health practitioners can take the Fundamentals technique which is a four-day course. The training program guides you through the principles of BodyTalk, Acess and has fifteen more techniques. To those who want to upgrade their skills and knowledge can sign up for the diploma course wherein the government recognizes graduates. There is even an advanced certification that takes two to three more years of study. “I teach a lot of Theoretical Physics. A lot of the techniques of BodyTalk is based on Quantum theory. And we learn a lot of advanced courses for high-speed communication for treating difficult things. We also do a lot of philosophy,” said Dr. John Veltheim.  He adds, “It’s about the power of the body to heal itself if given the opportunity. BodyTalk is setting up the conditions in the body to enable it to heal itself.” Dr. John Veltheim has a high success rate in teaching practitioners and treating patients with BodyTalk. To avail of the courses he offers, as well as excellent reading resources on BodyTalk, do check out his website. Better Food and Lifestyle Dr. John Veltheim firmly stresses that what you eat is very important. But it could be easily misunderstood because so much of it depends on our belief system and our attitude. “When it comes to eating right, it is state of mind and state of the way we look at things,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “And the fact is, in certain cultures, having extra weight is something very important for the culture.” When Dr. John Veltheim was developing BodyTalk, he revealed that he needed more weight because the weight helped anchor him. But a year ago, Dr. John Veltheim decided he had too much weight, so he decided to lose weight. But Dr. John Veltheim didn’t change his diet. He took extra effort to walk for exercise, but his mental thing was that he was going to lose weight healthily. And he did. Ultimately, it was about shifting the state of mental consciousness. And with losing weight, it’s about accepting your genes. Dr. John Veltheim also encourages people to nurture their thirst for knowledge and find out the best way to truly take care of their body. “I’d like to educate people that there are some things I do would be better handled with natural therapy. It will be less traumatic to the patient and faster,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  Bio Dr. John Veltheim D.C, B.Ac is the founder of the BodyTalk System and the International BodyTalk Association. He is also the founder of AnimalTalk and PlantTalk. Dr. John Veltheim is a chiropractor, traditional acupuncturist, philosopher, Reiki Master, lecturer, and teacher.  The BodyTalk System was first developed in the 1990s by Dr. John Veltheim. Originally from Australia, Dr. John Veltheim ran a very successful clinic in Brisbane for 15 years. He was also the Principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for five years.  His extensive post-graduate studies include applied kinesiology, bioenergetic psychology, osteopathy, quantum physics, sports medicine, counseling, and comparative philosophy and theology.  Dr. John Veltheim discovered the BodyTalk System in the mid-1990s.  His state of health was compromised despite being a leader in the healthcare field working with both eastern and western methods.  He eventually found a simple technique that corrected his condition.  Dr. John Veltheim saw this breakthrough as a new priority in his life and proceeded to investigate the techniques and principals involved.  In 1998, Dr. John Veltheim moved to Sarasota, Florida to further his practice and research of BodyTalk. Soon he began to teach advanced levels of the BodyTalk System to professionals as well as lay people. When word spread about the successes of this remarkable new healthcare system, he took on the task of training other instructors, so the BodyTalk System could be taught worldwide. Today there are over 200 instructors teaching in over 50 countries with a translation of training materials into ten languages.  Today, Dr. John Veltheim travels the world, teaching sessions in BodyTalk and its related wellness programs to professionals as well as lay people. He continues to mentor and train a network of instructors to ensure this remarkable new healthcare system can be taught worldwide. Get Connected With Dr. John Veltheim!

313 Using Intuition, Energy, Ancient Medicine and Science To Discover What The Body Needs, Founder of BodyTalk System Dr. John Veltheim, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Kinesiology

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE! Join My New Year's Health Transformation Workshop Now: http://learntruehealth.com/yes   Body Talk System: https://www.bodytalksystem.com   BodyTalk System http://learntruehealth.com/bodytalk-system-john-veltheim BodyTalk System is earning raves from practitioners and patients from all over the world. Instead of using medication, the BodyTalk System teaches us how to connect with our body, use our intuition and energy for healing. To talk more about the BodyTalk System, I have no less than its founder Dr. John Veltheim expound on the BodyTalk System in this two-part interview series. Starting Early Dr. John Veltheim says he has always been interested in searching for life and interested in life itself. He started early doing meditation at the age of 7 and eventually also studied martial arts. Martial arts gave Dr. John Veltheim an appreciation of the energy systems of the body and the way they move. However, Dr. John Veltheim says his first significant interest was philosophy or Indian Philosophy in particular. He was also very interested in comparative religion. Dealing With Injuries Dr. John Veltheim was no stranger to injuries. But he shares that doctors weren’t helping his health situation improve. So, Dr. John Veltheim eventually found alternative therapies like osteopathy, chiropractic, and acupuncture techniques which helped him a lot. That experience enticed Dr. John Veltheim to go into this Holistic field rather than the straight medical field.  Teaching Acupuncture Dr. John Veltheim went to college in Melbourne, after which he started out doing chiropractic. From there, he went to acupuncture, studied extensively and decided that he needed to teach it. “So, I formed a college that is now the second largest acupuncture college in the world. I wrote a four-year full-time curriculum. And I did a lot of work with sports medicine as well. I also did Naturopathy and Nutrition,” said Dr. John Veltheim.  Work Challenges Dr. John Veltheim says that one of the big problems having a bustling clinic is that it is hard to maintain. Hence, it was not surprising that he became swamped. “My life has always been around healthcare. And the college that I developed, I was principal for many years. I wrote their curriculum, and it’s still going,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “It’s now a university course recognized by the government, a six-year full-time university course.”  He adds, “The Federal Health Department and government also recognize our BodyTalk System in Australia. So, when practitioners get our basic qualifications, they can practice with health benefits among other things.”  Personal Experience Dr. John Veltheim also explored Taoism or Daoism. He also pursued a Ph.D. degree in Toronto University studying ancient Chinese medical philosophy. “What got me going in BodyTalk was a personal thing. I worked for around 16 years, six days a week. And had the biggest practice in Australia by far. Then my health caught up with me. I suddenly collapsed, was hospitalized and given just days to live,” shares Dr. John Veltheim.  Dr. John Veltheim contracted the Epstein Barr virus. His liver was severely damaged that he was given three days to live. Finding A Cure Refusing to give up, Dr. John Veltheim checked himself out of the hospital and proceeded to treat himself with Chinese herbs, acupuncture, and meditation. He soon recovered and realized the need to change his lifestyle. A couple of months later, he went back to the hospital for a check-up and astounded the doctors upon seeing that Dr. John Veltheim’s liver was back to normal size. Dr. John Veltheim eventually sold his practice and began teaching stress management, philosophy, and Reiki around the world.  Teaching Career After his health improved, Dr. John Veltheim quit his practice.  He then met his second wife and went into teaching Mindscape and other things that his wife developed like the BreakThrough System which is defined as a dynamic process of self-inquiry. By 1995, Dr. John Veltheim had a basic program that he decided he could teach on weekends. It had excellent results and kept expanding from there. “Then I developed a concept of being able to get a protocol going where we could communicate with the body. I developed a system to talk to your body by biofeedback, question, and answer, and muscle testing,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  He adds, “I refined it to a more accurate system. But basically, it’s based on getting in touch with the intuition of the patient and your intuition. And then asking what to do based on a protocol. The protocol is the left-brain factor that enables you to focus on what you are doing and then focus the right brain.” As Dr. John Veltheim introduced it to many different aspects, he brought in nutrition factors and sports medicine factors. He also did a lot of work involving neurology and balancing the brain. “I simplified it so that people can understand it. Although it is best suited for practitioners who were ready to refine their practice and refine the principles of BodyTalk to their staff,” said Dr. John Veltheim. Diet Dr. John Veltheim says there’s no such thing as a good diet or the perfect diet for a particular person. He never prescribes diets per se. “I look at the person, their needs, chemistry, and blood group. Essentially, it’s a formalized system that follows a protocol that makes sure we cover all the things,” Dr. John Veltheim said. Tapping Practitioners bring in tough cases, and Dr. John Veltheim says his job is to treat them by going through the process. He does the appropriate linking through the nervous system, energy system or the blood system. And through the process of lightly tapping on the head, sternum and the gut, it activates the neurological systems. “That tapping is something I development many years ago. A lot of people are using it now,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “The power of tapping is when you tap, you set off a wavelength that causes any form of subtle imbalance that you are aiming at. It causes the body to start balancing, and then the body heals itself.”  The Effectiveness of the BodyTalk System Since developing the BodyTalk System, Dr. John Veltheim never made any decision about a patient. He sits with the patient and let their body tell him precisely what to do. “I don’t make any decisions about it although I have to know which questions to ask. But beyond that, the body heals itself,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  He adds, “Those people who are patients or BodyTalkers for a while, start looking at things differently. Our upbringing and our genes will determine a lot of what we can or can’t do in life. Then we start looking at the cells differently because the kidney-adrenal complex controls the cells’ energy.” Mindscape Dr. John Veltheim reveals that a significant percentage of athletic injuries are due to emotional life or sometimes diet. Emotional factors play a substantial role for athletes because it is devastating to train for the Olympics and then miss out at the last moment. And Mindscape helps them deal with that. “Mindscape that I developed back them is now used throughout the world. I think Björn Borg was one of the first to apply it. We are all intuitive. It’s just a matter of learning the pros and cons of how to do it,” said Dr. John Veltheim. Healing Organs According to Dr. John Veltheim, the heart and liver are the easiest organs to heal. He also says the microbiome is the physical part of our body. And that they are the most influential thing in the body. It’s about getting the right condition for creating health. “I teach energy manipulation to get them into position. The body then gets to synchronize and communicate well between the brain in the head, the brain in the heart and brain in the gut. However, the heart brain is more complex than the brain in the head,” said Dr. John Veltheim. He adds, “When you train the body and the brain system to work properly, it means the right brain is doing the right things. And that’s part of the BodyTalk System.”  BodyTalk Access BodyTalk Access is the basic fundamental for BodyTalk that will generally balance out the body. Its domestic first-aid techniques will help you heal quicker. “You can’t practice professionally with it. But it’s great to use in the family or yourself. It balances the brain, reduces stress and allows the brain to function better. Ultimately, it makes a big difference,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  Bio Dr. John Veltheim D.C, B.Ac is the founder of the BodyTalk System and the International BodyTalk Association. Dr. John Veltheim is a chiropractor, traditional acupuncturist, philosopher, Reiki Master, lecturer, and teacher.  The BodyTalk System was first developed in the 1990s by Dr. John Veltheim. Originally from Australia, Dr. John Veltheim ran a very successful clinic in Brisbane for 15 years. He was also the Principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for five years.  His extensive post-graduate studies include applied kinesiology, bioenergetic psychology, osteopathy, quantum physics, sports medicine, counseling, and comparative philosophy and theology.  Dr. John Veltheim discovered the BodyTalk System in the mid-1990s.  His state of health was compromised despite being a leader in the healthcare field working with both eastern and western methods.  He eventually found a simple technique that corrected his condition.  Dr. John Veltheim saw this breakthrough as a new priority in his life and proceeded to investigate the techniques and principals involved.  In 1998, Dr. John Veltheim moved to Sarasota, Florida to further his practice and research of BodyTalk. Soon he began to teach advanced levels of the BodyTalk System to professionals as well as lay people. When word spread about the successes of this remarkable new healthcare system, he took on the task of training other instructors so the BodyTalk System could be taught worldwide. Today there are over 200 instructors teaching in over 50 countries with a translation of training materials into ten languages.  Today, Dr. John Veltheim travels the world, teaching sessions in BodyTalk and its related wellness programs to professionals as well as lay people. He continues to mentor and train a network of instructors to ensure this remarkable new healthcare system can be taught worldwide. Get Connected With Dr. John Veltheim!

312 The Whole Body Approach To Curing and Healing Back Pain and Chronic Pain, Three Weeks to a Better Back, The Back Pain Relief Diet, Dr. Todd Sinett, The Sinett Solution, Listening To The Body To Fi

The Back Pain Relief Diet: The Undiscovered Key to Reducing Inflammation and Eliminating Pain https://amzn.to/2E274Ig The Ultimate Backbridge Stretch Book: (The Sinett Solution) https://amzn.to/2Qzjcah Dr. Todd Sinett Backbridge – Lumbar Support and Pain Relief for Lower and Upper Back – Adjustable Stretching and Strengthening Back Arch https://amzn.to/2PkdEvE   The Sinett Solution http://learntruehealth.com/the-sinett-solution The Sinett Solution is one of the approaches worth looking into if you have back pain issues. It’s a common misconception that things like back pain and other chronic problems can only be addressed with medication. Dr. Todd Sinett is my guest today who will tell us exactly how The Sinett Solution has helped change so many lives. Father’s Ordeal The Sinett Solution was not conceived overnight. It started with the personal experience of Dr. Todd Sinett’s father who was a chiropractor for fifteen years. One day, Dr. Todd Sinett’s father bent to pick up a tennis ball which resulted in back pain and a nine-month journey to find a solution. His father was completely debilitated by back pain to the point he was unable to work and was incapacitated for nine months. A breakthrough came when Dr. Todd Sinett’s father went to see a Dr. George Goodheart who was a chiropractor in Detroit. Dr. George Goodheart initially asked about diet and digestive function. After a through diagnosis, Dr. George Goodheart surmised that the act of bending down to pick up a tennis ball was not the real cause of the back pain of Dr. Todd Sinett’s father. Poor Diet Poor diet is the cause of the elder Sinett’s back spasm. His diet was filled with sugar, hence upsetting his stomach and creating something called visceral somatic reaction. “Our digestive system is very much linked to our muscular system. Dr. Goodheart made dad completely change his diet,” recalls Dr. Todd Sinett. “He removed all the sugars and irritants to his digestive system and was 100% cured. That changed the way he practiced, and he then wanted to help people.”  Helping People Dr. Todd Sinett is a second-generation chiropractor. And he feels his life mission is to help as many people as possible. He says as he got older, this information became too vital for him to pass up. “My life mission is to help as many people as possible. I came up with The Sinett Solution, and it is the right approach to diagnose and treat back pain. It’s a paradigm problem. And it is a philosophical problem which is why we have so much back pain,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. Harsh Reality Dr. Todd Sinett says if you look at the statistics of back pain, we are in a complete health epidemic. Because 20% of the world population suffers from back pain. And 85% of the world will suffer from back pain. “It’s the second leading cause of missed work days. And it’s the number one reason for job disability,” Dr. Todd Sinett shares. “But all we keep doing is putting more energy, more effort, more time, more money, more invasive treatments to try treat back pain. We keep having more back pain. Something needs to change.”  He adds, “The only random thing in the body is trauma. If you fall off a bicycle or be involved in a motor vehicle accident, that’s trauma. And that’s a random event. Other than that, everything else is building little by little.” Dr. Todd Sinett also reveals that the rate of back surgery in the U.S. is extremely high to the point where the success rate is so poor, that we have a diagnosis called FBSS or Failed Back Surgical Syndrome. Sources Of Back Pain Dr. Todd Sinett says back pain will come from three sources. Structural imbalances or structural inflammation is where we are spending all of our current energy, time and effort. Furthermore, Stanford University found that stress is the number one factor when it comes to back pain. “Stress and emotions are very important factors. The third is diet, nutrition and digestive function,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. “So, any imbalance in any one of those three areas can trigger back pain. Oddly enough, it can also very commonly be some culmination of two or all three factors.” Dr. Todd Sinett also says just because the pain went away; it does not mean the problem went away. Listen to the body rather than tell it to shut up. “We need to figure out what’s the right diet for a particular individual. What is healthy for you is not necessarily healthy for some. So, make sure you are listening to the body and our digestive system because that is the key,” Dr. Todd Sinett advised.  He adds, “When people are in a lot of pain, doctors will frequently prescribe anti-inflammatory medication. So, if you have a diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature, in theory, it’s going to accomplish the same thing naturally.”   The Back Pain Relief Diet Book The Back Pain Relief Diet is a book Dr. Todd Sinett wrote for people who feel their back pain is diet-related or digestive-related. The first thing Dr. Todd Sinett has in the book is the digestive inflammation test to see if your diet is causing the back pain. Culprits may include anything from caffeine, sugar, alcohol, constipation, diarrhea, or stomach upset. On the other hand, if the back pain is coming from the digestive system, the book provides a diagnostic nutrition test. “In my book, I have three different diets to try and see if we can do everything we can to cut down on inflammation and irritation on a particular diet. It has meal plans, so you can eliminate particular foods,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. The diet ideally takes three weeks, after which Dr. Todd Sinett advises patients to re-introduce foods slowly. He believes this is the easiest method and allows you the flexibility to fix it on your own. “I like to do things nice, easy and simple. There are other steps and other processes, but you always want to do the least invasive test first and then continue to the more and more invasive,” Dr. Todd Sinett said. The 3 Weeks to a Better Back Book Dr. Todd Sinett primarily wrote this book for back pain sufferers. It is a self-diagnostic and self-treatment kind of book. The book will steer you in the right direction to figure out if your back pain is structural in nature, emotional or digestive. Furthermore, the has guidelines to help you figure out the right formula for you, whether your back pain is structural, digestive or emotional. It lays out options for you to try different treatments, different theories, different foods, or have an elimination diet. And it also encourages things like regular walks, listening to music, tapping, and breathing techniques. Bottom line, Dr. Todd Sinett wants to see what resonates with a particular individual. “One of my favorite nuggets of the book is that there was a study in 1994 where they put 98 people in an MRI machine. Two-thirds had a bulge, and 16 or 28% had discorniations, but these people never suffered from back pain,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  He adds, “The usefulness of an MRI is completely misguided. Research now shows that MRIs are more harmful than helpful in diagnosing back pain. There are a lot of myths that we need to re-educate the public, so they can be empowered to fix their own back.” The Ultimate Backbridge Stretch Book Dr. Todd Sinett found the commonality on structural treatments for people and people’s back pain. And one of the commonality is that we’re suffering from too much flexion or too much forward posture. “We need to do the opposite of bending forward. So, I designed a product called the Backbridge, where you lay over 2 minutes in the morning, and 2 minutes in the evening,” says Dr. Todd Sinett. He adds, “It provides an essential progressive extension to one’s spine. It re-aligns the spine, posture, and structure. And it also relieves a lot of back pain. The book also contains stretch routines to regain flexibility. According to Dr. Todd Sinett, the lack of flexibility in our body is probably the missing link when it comes to any fitness. He says bed rest is the worst thing to do. Instead, the best exercise for back pain is walking to circulate blood.  Walking is also a stress reliever. Success Stories There are so many success stories that Dr. Todd Sinett achieved while helping people over the past 20 years. He says back pain is not normal and is completely debilitating. And what you want to do is to try and get to the cause of the back pain, address and fix it. “I want people to make decisions from strength and not from weakness. And I don’t want them to reach false conclusions. It’s not so much what is a healthy diet. But rather it’s about what is a healthy diet for you,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  The Sinett Solution Formulating The Sinett Solution was Dr. Todd Sinett’s aha moment. He recalls making a New Year’s resolution to have oatmeal every day for breakfast. For lunch, it’s salad and lean protein. And for dinner, lean protein and vegetables. But apparently, the diet was unhealthy for Dr. Todd Sinett. He was gassy, bloated, and had a stiff neck. “And the only difference was me eating oatmeal every day for breakfast. So, what I did was, I stopped having oatmeal. I went back to having eggs, whole grain toast, whole grain cereals, peanut butter, and jelly sandwiches,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  He adds, “I think back pain is not the problem, but rather the inflammation factor that winds up in your back. So, what we want to do is get rid of the inflammation. The inflammation can be structural or postural. Hence, we address this first.” Emotional Inflammation Dr. Todd Sinett believes that what we want to know is how our emotions and our stress is impacting our body. Or finding the answer to what is creating a physiologic effect on our body. “Emotions are not just psychological. It creates a physiologic response. To fix that, exercise helps, as well as meditation, talking to a therapist, seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist. What you want to do is reduce as much inflammation from the emotions as much as possible,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  He adds, “If you get balance in those three areas, the likelihood of having back pain severely diminishes and decreases. A lot of these things are very much inter-related. Our structural system, emotional system, and digestive system are linked.” Troubleshooting Dr. Todd Sinett says if a chiropractor, physical therapist or massage therapist are not helping, there are other natural approaches and natural healing such as trigger point injections which are a bit more invasive. For diet issues, see a nutritionist. Or see a gastroenterologist to get tested. If you have emotional problems and having trouble managing stress, see a stress management counselor.  You can also do biofeedback to monitor response for stress.  It can also teach people how to get their body into a relaxed state. Or see a therapist or psychiatrist. “One of the main problems with our back pain is that our treatment is based on who you see is what you get. And not really what you have,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. “We want to make sure you are in the right place first because that’s when you are going to have success. We want to smart about the approach.”  He adds, “Solving your back pain is a lot simpler than you think. You don’t need to be okay with back pain on a level of two out of ten. I don’t want you to live your life around your back pain. Plus, I want to address all the situations and solutions head-on. And allow you to live a very happy, active, healthy life. Because you don’t need to be living with your back pain.”  Bio Dr. Todd Sinett is a pain expert and chiropractor. In his bestselling series of books, including 3 Weeks to a Better Back, he has introduced the Sinett Solution: the practice of listening to the whole body and treating all sources of back pain on the structural, digestive, and emotional levels (what the calls the “triad of health”).  He is a recognized authority in applied kinesiology and has served as a clinical expert for many TV programs, including The View, FoxMD, and Good Day New York. Dr. Sinett has been a lecturer on MSNBC and at the Learning Annex and has been featured in countless health and fitness publications. Get Connected with Dr. Todd Sinett!

UPDATED 311 The Missing Link To Ultimate Happiness, Freedom, Success, Productivity, and Fulfillment, Healing Patriarchy Stress Disorder, Trauma As Ancestral, Collective, and Individual, Mental Health,

When first published the last 30min of the episode was cut off. This has now been corrected! Free eBook: www.PSDandME.com www.drvaleriebaker.com "I'm passionate about my topic of Patriarchy Stress Disorder as the missing piece to women's ultimate success and happiness because women suffer from a lot of stress-related disorders, yet the underlying trauma is not addressed in their treatment. Women are diagnosed with anxiety and depression almost twice as often as men, and are kept on medication and talk therapy without addressing deep embodied trauma that's underlying these and many other health and mental health conditions. We deserve better than that."   Patriarchy Stress Disorder http://learntruehealth.com/patriarchy-stress-disorder Patriarchy Stress Disorder or PSD affects a significant part of our inner self. This is the reason why even if we are successful in other aspects of our lives, we sometimes feel empty. My guest, Psychologist Dr. Valerie Baker is no stranger to Patriarchy Stress Disorder. She overcame Patriarchy Stress Disorder using some healing tools which she will teach us in today’s episode. Personal Journey First of all, Dr. Valerie Baker says this is not at all about women against men or men against women. But instead, this is about a system that has existed for thousands of years. She also says it has chopped us up from the fullness of our authentic expression. Dr. Valerie Baker journey in discovering Patriarchy Stress Disorder began with a health crisis. Back then, Dr. Valerie Baker’s life from the outside looking in looked perfect. “I checked all of the boxes that the society told me I needed to check. First, I had four degrees including two masters and a Ph.D.,” shares Dr. Valerie Baker. “Then I started three businesses and had a successful career. I married a great guy, had a wonderful daughter, and a lovely house in New York City suburbs.” Am I Happy? Dr. Valerie Baker did a good job convincing herself that she was happy. She made sure she didn’t have time to reflect on how she was doing. Until one day, Dr. Valerie Baker ended up in the emergency room with symptoms of a stroke. The incident led to Dr. Valerie Baker experiencing the left side of her body feels limp. It turned out to be stress. Dr. Valerie Baker didn’t realize she was running high-stress levels. “Being in the ER for a day gave me space to reflect on my life. I hadn’t had that space in a long time. It made me uncomfortable. I didn’t understand why. Why was I so stuck?” pondered Dr. Valerie Baker.  She adds, “I realized the active ingredient in healing for all my patients both emotional and physical was mind body spirit trauma resolution. Even for people who think they didn’t have trauma.”    Seeing A Change Once Dr. Valerie Baker started used mind body spirit resolution tools, she started seeing significant shifts. She had a light bulb moment regarding the trauma we all share.  Men and women both experience trauma but in different ways. “If we accept that being oppressed is traumatic, then we can see that all of us are born with this information that it’s not safe for a woman in this world. And that we need to create some adaptations,” said Dr. Valerie Baker.  She adds, ” Patriarchy Stress Disorder affects us all. This realization was very empowering because I realized there was nothing wrong with me. Understanding that there is nothing to fix, there is something to heal is liberating.”  Work Mission The mission behind Dr. Valerie Baker’s work is helping women create an analogy for their health, well-being, relationships and their work in the world. Her work is about healing from the inside out. “In this battle, there is no enemy. It’s not women against men but rather us all healing. And it’s about looking at the truths of the situation deeper and using tools to heal,” said Dr. Valerie Baker. Where Trauma Comes From Dr. Valerie Baker reveals that there is so much trauma in the workplace. And this is the reason why there are offices right now offering training. This is to help people understand the internal workings of the trauma that creates blind spots, biases, and factors that messes everything up. “There are so many stressors apart from the trauma that we have inherited. And there are so many stressors of being a woman in a patriarchal world,” Dr. Valerie Baker said. “We have to police ourselves all the time. And we are being policed all the time. There’s always something wrong to be found with a woman. What’s worse is the inner critic. That is a big part of how PSD manifests.” Dealing With Trauma All those voices inherited and imprinted can be vicious. Dr. Valerie Baker says it doesn’t go away or get easier the more we accomplish. Because ultimately, we can have all the accomplishments. But until we heal the trauma that makes us feel worthless, it’s going to be there. “When we heal trauma on the inside, the environment around us and the relationship with ourselves shift as well. No matter how much trauma we inherited, we can shift it in one generation. We can shift within ourselves and not pass it down anymore,” said Dr. Valerie Baker. In dealing with trauma, Dr. Valerie Baker shares a time when she had a spontaneous memory of what it was like to be a newborn baby. And what it is like to be in her mama’s womb. Recalling her past, Dr. Valerie Baker says her mom had severe anxiety. And that Dr. Valerie Baker was also allergic to absolutely everything. “I realized that level of trauma. And it brought me so much closer to my daughter. It’s a deeper moment of connection. Don’t stifle that voice. It’s your guide. If you stifle it, something is going to suffer,” Dr. Valerie Baker advises.  She adds, “When the demand exceeds our capacity, it usually overwhelms us. And it becomes traumatic. All the trauma comes from when we were little. Because we had the least sources to understand and process what was going on. Plus, we didn’t have the permission and opportunity.”   Trauma Factors Dr. Valerie Baker shares that in helping others especially adults, they usually realize situations that they would never have thought was traumatic. It stems from emotional or verbal violations of our boundaries as children and growing up which are pretty much constant. It’s traumatic because children don’t have much capacity or tools. “Our natural reaction to being scared and feeling unsafe would be to run or fight. Those emotional reactions of fight and flight are interrupted. We don’t have an opportunity to discharge,” said Dr. Valerie Baker.  She adds, “And that charge of fear and emotion gets stuck in the body. It begins to clog the energy channel. And it also happens with grief and loss. Adults have so much unprocessed grief. Because in our culture, we don’t do grief well”. Dr. Valerie Baker also says this is because there is such a limited range of emotional expression that we are allowed under patriarchy. Men are allowed to express anger and aggression. They are not allowed to express grief, nurturing, being tender or vulnerable emotions. Women, on the other hand, are not allowed to express anger. We can express nurturing and vulnerability. But expressing grief is also not okay. Finding Solutions Dr. Valerie Baker likes working with groups because it can be empowering. A good support system is essential because sometimes, there are positive emotions that are unprocessed. “Positive information has not been essential to our survival. It takes ten full seconds for us to experience a positive experience through the five senses,” said Dr. Valerie Baker.  Five-Step Jailbreak System For us to have a jailbreak, Dr. Valerie Baker says the process can be stressful. Hence, the tools that she teaches first create safety and bring down the nervous system activation. So, it feels safe and not stressful for us to create that change. Dr. Valerie Bakers also encourage people who need help to work with her so she can assist in addressing several issues that are linked to trauma. Rather than resort to anti-depressants or drugs, a mind, body and spirit resolution is useful. It’s all about helping people finally making sense of the issues that contribute to their stress or trauma.

310 Lyme Survivor Cures His Disease Then Helps Others Do The Same, Scott Forsgren, Mold, Histamine, Allergies, SIBO, SIFO, Candida, Parasites, EMF, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt's Kryptopyrroluria , Lyme In

Scott's site: http://betterhealthguy.com TFIM: https://forumforintegrativemedicine.org LymeLight: http://lymelightfoundation.org   Dealing With Lyme Disease Naturally http://learntruehealth.com/dealing-lyme-disease-naturally Dealing with Lyme disease naturally seems impossible, but it’s not. My returning guest Scott Forsgren had ample experience dealing with Lyme disease naturally and is now helping others do the same. And he’ll teach us how he did all that in this episode. First and foremost, Scott Forsgren says his whole journey in dealing with Lyme disease naturally was influenced by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt’s energetic testing. Scott Forsgren worked with practitioners for years that use his autonomic response testing and eventually got certified to administer the testing, too. Improving Gut Health Majority of the immune system and neurotransmitters originate in the gut. So, Scott Forsgren says the more we can optimize our G.I. health, the more we can improve our overall health. He advises to first look at diet. He believes it needs to be individualized but at the same time, remove the foods that are known to be more common stressors like gluten, cow dairy, and sugar. Scott Forsgren also recommends working with a nutritionist to find out which diet might make the most sense for someone to explore. “One that I observed helps most people dealing with Lyme disease is the low-histamine diet. It is not an easy diet to do. And it’s easier if people generally prepare their food at home rather than eat out,” said Scott Forsgren. “I see it helps reduce inflammation in people and to help with a lot of their symptoms just by changing the diet.”  He adds, “The more we can focus on reducing inflammation in general, while we are treating the underlying causes, or triggers of our health condition, the easier it is to get through that process. The less inflamed people are and the better they feel while they are being treated.”  Realities of Lyme Disease In dealing with Lyme disease naturally, you have first to understand the components of the disease. Scott Forsgren says if someone is dealing with Lyme, they probably have Bartonella and or babesia. Some other common co-infections or opportunistic infections that need to be explored as well. Again, he advises people to work with a practitioner who can start treating them with antibiotics, herbs, homeopathy or other tools. Food Sensitivity Testing Food sensitivity testing is worth exploring when you are dealing with Lyme disease naturally. This is also needed if people have very specific and unique foods that might be an issue for them. Scott Forsgren says avoiding those foods can be significant. He also says that gluten is non-negotiable on people with Lyme and mold-related issues. Furthermore, Scott Forsgren believes probably at least half, or more people would do better by eliminating cow dairy. “Avoid those things stressful to the system, which creates more inflammation and instead, incorporate foods that are as nutritionally dense as possible,” Scott Forsgren advises. “Not the prepared, processed food but getting real food into the diet. As much organic food as possible, eliminating the GMO foods and restricting the processed foods is important.”  He adds, “And then depending on whether or not people consume meat, organic grass-fed meat, pasture-raised poultry, and wild-caught seafood can be very helpful as well.”  Healthy Fats Scott Forsgren also says consuming healthy fats can help in dealing with Lyme disease naturally.  Healthy fats include butter or ghee, chia seeds, coconut oil, and olive oil. He also likes a lot of the plants and seed-based oils. What Scott Forsgren does daily is making a power shake, with high-quality protein, collagen powder, a blend of different fibers that helps not only with gut but also from a perspective of binding toxicity and supporting cell membranes. Scott Forsgren also likes to mix in these healthy fats in the form of flaxseed oil, sunflower seed oil, a tablespoon of chia seeds and organic almond milk or any nut milk.  It helps build muscle and structural integrity which is useful in overall health maintenance.  Mega SporeBiotic Mega SporeBiotic is a spore-based probiotic developed by Kiran Krishnan and Microbiomelabs. People tolerate it pretty well. Scott Forsgren says many other probiotics are a problem or an additional stressor if you have a histamine issue. “It can also help address leaky gut issues which are often a reason why we are so reactive to foods. And why we have some of the inflammation which is due to the immune system constantly being triggered by these food and other particles that are getting through the gut membrane,” said Scott Forsgren. Restore Another product Scott Forsgren recommends is Dr. Zach Bush’s Restore, which is a dietary supplement for gut health. Depending on each person’s situation, Scott Forsgren says looking at gut health will often go beyond the diet piece and the intestinal hyperpermeability piece but also into some of those microbial overgrowths, SIBO, SIFO, dysbiosis, and parasites. “The majority of our symptoms are the results of the inflammatory event that occurs — microbes for example. It’s not so much that the symptoms are from the bug. But it’s from the immune system’s reaction to those bugs that creates inflammation,” said Scott Forsgren. Mast Cell Activation Syndrome Scott Forsgren says that people may have heard of mast cell activation syndrome which is the overproduction of histamine. He says there are many other mediators besides the histamine. And this is something that has been known in the autism arena for many years. “Most people who are dealing with chronic infection, chronic toxicity, Lyme disease, and mold probably have some degree of mast cell activation and histamine-related issues,” Scott Forsgren said. “One of the primary triggers for mast cell activation is mold. Hence, it is the top thing people should look out.”  He adds, “But there are so many other triggers like parasites, Lyme disease, co-infections of Lyme disease-like Bartonella in particular. Environmental toxins like heavy metals, some medications, food, some supplements or temperature change can trigger mast cell reaction. Physical or emotional stress and electromagnetic field also trigger it as well.” Treatment Options Some practitioners might use some pharmaceutical medications like diamine oxidase. Scott Forsgren says it can be helpful for some people especially around eating time if foods trigger their mast cell issues. One product Scott Forsgren recommends is Neuroprotek from a company called Algonot. Lots of people in the autism area are familiar with that product because NeuroProtek reduces oxidative stress and inflammation. Another product that Scott Forsgren recommends is Dr. Ben Lynch’s probiotic combination. There’s also ProBiota HistaminX from seekinghealth.com, and vitamin c helpful as well. On the other hand, Beyond Balance’s Mast-Ease was formulated to support the body’s natural ability to normalize mast cell and histamine response, as well as aid in reducing inflammation. “People do find that they have an impairment. And they lose hope that they can get well. They feel as though their body is failing them in some way and not supporting them in their recovery,” said Scott Forsgren. “So, I think it’s critical to get into the gene conversation. to look at the epigenetics or what are the influencers of our genes rather than the potential for something to go wrong.” Sauna Therapy While Scott Forsgren recognizes the benefits of doing sauna sessions, he says it is essential to talk to your health practitioner to guide you. This is to make sure the timing is right, make sure they are sweating and that they got the proper support.  You must also make sure you are getting electrolytes and detoxifying well before doing saunas. “What we don’t often think about is the toxins that are getting inside the body after the sauna session is over. So, make sure your liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and extracellular matrix are all optimized,” said Scott Forsgren. EMR And EMF Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was talking about the adverse effect of EMR and EMFs since way back 2006. However, there were a lot of skeptics then. But as the years went by, more studies show that EMFs are stressors to our cells. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also talks about how they make molds and other organisms that are within us more aggressive or produce more biotoxins. Scott Forsgren says to be alert if you have mold from water damage in your home environment. Because the exponential increase in EMF is probably another reason why those molds now produce more toxins that influence our health. “Endogenous retroviruses that we are conceived with are not necessarily viruses that we acquire. Historically, endogenous retroviruses have not caused us problems from a health perspective. Reducing EMF exposure certainly plays a role in some of those viruses that might be stressing our system as well,” said Scott Forsgren.  He adds, “It’s not possible to eliminate EMFs. The focus has to be how to reduce our exposure. Avoid exposure when sleeping because that is when the body is regenerating, restoring and repairing. Nothing should be plugged in. Dr. Klinghardt even recommended turning off the circuit breakers to the house. And minimize use during the day.” As for choosing the right bed to sleep in, Scott Forsgren says you don’t want metal in your bed or box spring. Bottom line, the mattress should have no metal and recommends OrganicPedic.  In dealing with Lyme disease naturally and all other chronic illnesses, even blankets should be safe and free of EMFs. A good brand is Little Tree Group, which according to their website, is a company who makes EMF/EMR Protective Blankets and Bed Canopies, plus other protective products, CES Units, and Earthing Products. Dirty Electricity Scott Forsgren also advises being wary of dirty electricity which runs on electrical outlets because it creates health stress. He also recommends getting meters to measure how much dirty electricity you have in your environment. “Have a building biologist to do some thorough testing to evaluate your home. EMF sensitivity is correlated to the level of heavy metals in the body and metal toxicity,” said Scott Forsgren. “And focusing on detoxification help over time to reduce electromagnetic hypersensitivity.” Scott Forsgren also reveals that you cannot detoxify when you are constantly exposed to EMFs. So, you have to be a little bit careful about how quickly you reduce your exposures. Kryptopyrroluria Kryptopyrroluria or KPU is a condition that Dr. Kinghardt feels that probably 80% or more of people with chronic Lyme disease and similar conditions are dealing with. Scott Forsgren says this is also common in the autism population. It can be something that we inherit or induced in us by different types of traumas or chronic infection. Or it can be something that is epigenetically turned on by influences like intrauterine or birth or childhood or transgenerational traumas, etc. Scott Forsgren says white spots on fingernails is a sign of zinc deficiency. Not recalling your dreams and depression are also symptoms of KPU. KPU is a significant loss of zinc, B6, biotin, manganese, omega 6 and other nutrients. “It can also lead to higher levels of heavy metal toxicities. Addressing KPU can also help from that perspective,” said Scott Forsgren. “Slowly detox because if you come in with huge amounts of zinc, you can start releasing metals and things in the body and create an inflammatory situation.”  Scott Forsgren also recommends the brand BioPure Core-S which contains KPU supporting nutrients. SIBO There are breath tests that you can do for SIBO that look at hydrogen and methane. Scott Forsgren says the GI-MAP (GI Microbial Assay Plus) stool test and MegaSporeBiotic help in this realm. Another worthy product to try is Bio-Botanical Research Biocidin. “Unfortunately, SIBO and SIFO seem to be fairly common issues that people are experiencing. Parasites can also play a role in this GI dysbiosis,” Scott Forsgren said.  He adds, “One of the challenges with parasites is that people often think of them as third world country problems. But it’s not true. Testing for parasites is poor. So do different systems of energetic testing like autonomic response testing or Dr. Simon Yu’s acupuncture meridian assessment.” But Scott Forsgren also says but you still have to know what questions to ask your practitioner to explore the issues for your specific system. “The more broadly we can cast the net, the broader the number of things we look at, the more likely it is that people can make progress with the number of things that we talked about,” said Scott Forsgren. Furthermore, Scott Forsgren says that the broader we cast the net, the less aggressive we have to be with any one of them because we’re just taking a more holistic approach. That’s why he believes Naturopathic Doctors are a phenomenal fit for a condition like Lyme disease since they are used to looking at all of the different factors. Dental Contributors Dental issues can be a significant factor for health. Scott Forsgren believes that dental problems can be part of setting the stage for why we later develop a condition from mold or Lyme disease. He says incorrectly removing mercury amalgams can lead to a more significant health problem. And it’s the same for root canals. “Tonsils can also play a big role. A little bit different from the dental piece. But it’s not uncommon for people to have tonsil issues,” Scott Forsgren said.  He adds, “People dealing with chronic Lyme disease and similar conditions do have some really good oral health program in place. When we reduce the burden of microbes in the oral cavity, we are also reducing stress on the rest of the body.” PANDA Scott Forsgren says PANDA is where Lyme disease might have been 10 to 15 years ago concerning acceptance and awareness. It stands for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal Infections. PANDA is a condition affecting a small group of children and results in a sudden and abrupt onset of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) symptoms. But Scott Forsgren doesn’t see PANDAS or PANS similar to autism, chronic Lyme disease or Alzheimers. He feels it’s more associated with chronic infections, chronic toxicity and the environment which we live. Because we have so many things that are just not supportive of our health. “Eventually we’ll see that there a lot of the same underlying factors. And the presentation tends to depend a lot on the age in which we encounter these things. It also depends on whether or not we’ve already neurologically developed or not,” said Scott Forsgren.  Lastly, he adds, “I definitely would not trade my experience because it has brought me to my purpose and passion. And the thing that excites me about is waking up every day and be able to help someone else that’s going through a similar journey. It’s really fun for me to be a part of seeing people make progress in their journey.”  Bio Scott Forsgren, FDN-P is a health coach, blogger, podcaster, health writer, and advocate.

309 A Different Perspective On Health, The Joyful Vegan’s Guide to Life, The Joy of Vegan Baking, The Vegan Table, Color Me Vegan, and The 30-Day Vegan Challenge, Plant-Based Diet and Lifestyle Author

http://www.colleenpatrickgoudreau.com WEBSITE http://www.colleenpatrickgoudreau.com/books/ BOOKS http://www.compassioninactionconference.com CONFERENCE   Vegan Lifestyle http://learntruehealth.com/vegan-lifestyle The vegan lifestyle is something more people are looking into. There have been so many positive testimonials from those who transitioned into a plant-based diet. People are starting, but some remain hesitant. To educate us more about how to live a vegan lifestyle, I’d invited Lifestyle Author and Activist Colleen Patrick-Goudreau in this episode. Long Journey Colleen Patrick-Goudreau shares that her journey to being vegan happened as a by-product of her passion and interest, as well as experiencing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. She says it’s been a journey of 25 years starting with growing on the east coast in New Jersey. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau was a typical kid eating the standard American diet. But she also loved animals and was fortunate that her parents supported her compassion. Growing older, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau became more concerned about eating animals. She loved meat, but she didn’t know what was involved until she was 19 or 20 years old and was working in a bookstore. Eyeopener Working in a bookstore was an eyeopener for Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. She learned new things and was interested in health and wellness. One particular book, the Diet for a New America book by John Robbins from the ice cream empire impacted Colleen Patrick-Goudreau the most. “My father owned a franchise, so I had an affiliation. It woke me up to realize what I was consuming. So, I stopped eating land animals. I ate products that I thought weren’t contributing harm. But I continued to eat dairy and eggs,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau recalls.  Becoming Vegan Colleen Patrick-Goudreau eventually realized there was no difference between meat, dairy, and eggs, so she became vegan. She declared that she didn’t set out to become anything. But she didn’t want to contribute to harm. “And there was the thing called vegan. I didn’t know what it even meant,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “What I like to say is that I need to become vegan as much as I removed the blocks to the compassion that has been inside me all along.”  She adds, “And as a natural advocate, I wanted something related to animal advocacy, writing, outreach, and education. So I started raising awareness and turned into the career that I built.”  The 30-Day Vegan Challenge Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says that if you are thinking of transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, the 30-Day Vegan Challenge is a good book to start. She says everyone claims they don’t eat a lot of meat, dairy, and eggs. But you don’t know how much you eat until you stop. “So, the idea behind it is to stop long enough to undo those old habits and learn new habits. Build the foundation. This is a fundamental handbook in making the transition,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “There is a lot to gain when you stop something completely. You are more open to making changes that have an impact which you can continue implementing.” Is The Vegan Lifestyle Healthy? Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says you can eat any way you want within the vegan spectrum. Because vegan means you’re just not eating animal products. She says there are so many variations within this thing called vegan. There’s not one way to do it. And there’s not one way to eat. “Eliminating meat, dairy and eggs is the best thing we can do and eating nutrient-dense foods as we can. The nutrients we need are plant-based. There is not one nutrient we need that is animal-based,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “The only nutrient we need that is not plant-based is vitamin B12. But it’s not animal-based either because it grows on bacteria. So, the idea that we have to go through an animal to get to the nutrient that the animals get because they eat plants is misguided.” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau further explains that therefore, we need to skip the middle animal and go directly to the plant to get the nutrients we need. And when we do, we get the vitamins, minerals, fiber, folate, phytochemicals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. Plus, we skip all of the substances we know that contribute to these preventable diseases.  Vegan Belief System Vegan authors, nutritionists, doctors are often accused of being biased and not credible because they are vegan. So, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says we have to get away from this notion that somehow eating animal products is neutral behavior and not biased. “We all have biases. Everything we do has a bias. It’s been shaped by our families and our cultures,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau also explains that when we are fighting to hang on to a particular belief, especially when a belief is a conflict, it compels people to throw out the facts. They disregard the evidence and science that backs up the fact that eating meat, dairy and eggs are problematic for our health, for the animals and the earth. “We all eat processed food. Eating food in their whole state as much as possible is the best thing we can do. But it doesn’t mean that everything that goes on in that spectrum towards more processed food is always bad,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau said. Color Me Vegan Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s Color Me Vegan book encourages people to eat by color. Because when color is your guide, you are eating a huge variety of foods. And you’re getting so many vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and phytonutrients. “All of the phytonutrients are in color. You can name the phytonutrients based on their color. And those colors in the phytonutrients affect different organs in our body,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “Nutrient deficiencies are not only in vegans and vegetarians. A lot of it has to do where we are getting the nutrients from and not absorbing it well. We also have to make sure we are not depleting our body of the nutrients.” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau cites iron for instance. She says one way to increase iron is by eating it with vitamin c rich foods and don’t have caffeine with meals. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says we also all need Vitamin D. And the best source is from the sun. But you can also take multi-vitamin as insurance. Switching From Meat To Plant-Based There are more calories in fat than there are in protein and carbohydrates. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says there’s a lot of fat in animal products. You may feel hungrier at the end of that second meal because you are eating fewer calories. “The answer to when you’re hungry is to eat. But what is great about eating fewer calories, people naturally tend to lose weight,” explains Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “If you’re hungry and you need more food, fill yourself up with really nutrient-dense colorful, healthful foods.”  She adds, “There are differences when you eat plant-based foods, but it doesn’t mean it’s bad or inferior. It’s just different. People have to learn to recalibrate what it means to feel full or how much food you’re eating. We’re so attached to what a meal looks like. So there a notion that if you remove the meat or main dish, that it’s a blank hole.” Hence the incomplete meal. That’s why Colleen Patrick-Goudreau advises people to rethink what the plate looks like and permit yourself to plate your foods differently. “A lot of it has to do with the focal point. We can create a beautiful focal point on our plate without the meat,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau said. “So, a lot of it has to do with changing our minds. Not just changing our habits and choices we make. It’s not meat we crave. But rather we do crave fat, salt, flavor, the familiarity of dimensions and texture.” The Vegan Table Book The Vegan Table Book is based on recipes that Colleen Patrick-Goudreau taught for ten years in her cooking classes. She says recipes are not so different from those you are already familiar with. Taking it out of the box called vegan makes it so much more familiar. “My recipes are very much based on familiar ingredients. No need to go to a specialty store. It can be found in the regular grocery stores,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “I also talk about plating our food. People also need to know what do you pair things with. The book is segregated into making meals for different occasions.” Eating Beans Colleen Patrick-Goudreau also encourages people to recalibrate how much time they think they should spend in the kitchen. Because right now, she says our threshold is zero. “We’re so used to fast food, packaged food, and processed food. Invest in a pressure cooker. I make a lot of soups and bean dishes because I love my pressure cooker so much. Cook beans from scratch because they are more flavorful,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “There is sugar in the beans that people can have a hard time digesting. That’s why people get gas, cramps and bloating. Bean-zyme puts an enzyme into your body that enables you to digest those sugars and reduce gas and cramping.” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau also explains that as you eat beans, your body becomes more accustomed to eating beans. And you start to have less gas. She also suggests to plan your meals ahead of time and reduce wastes. “When you get meat, dairy, and eggs out of your diet, your palate is also so much more sensitive to subtle flavors. But when they are coated with fat and salt, our palate can’t recognize and appreciate the subtle flavors,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “There is protein in all plant-foods. Protein is made up of amino acids. And amino acids are in all foods. Our bodies don’t care where we are getting those amino acids from. It does care in the sense that there’s a lot of evidence regarding the adverse effects of animal proteins.” Joyful Vegan Book Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says this book is perfect for teaching people everything they need to stay vegan in a world that wants you to eat meat dairy and eggs. The book focuses on the social aspects. It teaches you to re-examine where you came from, and what you were taught. “Food is the easy part. A lot of struggle for most people has to do with the social aspect,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau said. “The book is about what happens after you turned vegan. There are common threads even if details or experiences may be different. You see the world through a different lens regarding what you know now.” Stages Of Turning Vegan In her Joyful Vegan Book, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau identified what she called the ten stages of what happens when you stop eating meat, dairy, and eggs. First is the voracious consumption of information. You validate everything you learn. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, therefore, teaches you how to move through this stage, so you don’t get stuck. She also talks about self-care in the book. Another vital stage is dealing with remorse and guilt. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says it’s more of remorse than guilt. “The biggest mistake people make is they think being vegan is an end. They think that’s the goal when really, it’s a means to an end.  If you understand that being vegan is a means to reach your goals, you can then relax,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “It’s about understanding that it’s not about perfection. But rather it is about reflecting your values. It’s an imperfect world, and you’ll never be able to do it perfectly. But anything you do that’s moving in that direction is good.” Some other essential stages include a sense of community. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau advises finding like-minded people. She believes communication is also necessary for you to say your truth.

Try 5 samples for only one dollar: http://DollarPainCream.com PainKillerAwareness.org Real Time Pain Relief http://learntruehealth.com/real-time-pain-relief Real Time Pain Relief products have helped thousands of people to address their pain issues. I have personally experienced it that’s why I’m so excited to have Real Time Pain Relief founder Tim Flatt on the show to explain more about this revolutionary product. How It All Began The company behind Real Time Pain Relief is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Tim Flatt recalled that way back in 1998; there was a report by the Institute of Medicine where it discussed the side effects of over-the-counter-drugs and prescriptions for painkillers. Tim Flatt personally witnessed it while he was coaching a junior high basketball team back then. He noticed boys as young as 13 to 14 years old popping painkiller pills, and that impacted him a lot. Those pills affect the kidneys and cause intestinal bleeding. Something Needed To Be Done Tim Flatt felt the urgency to address the problem. So, the concept ingredient-based therapy was formed with Tim Flatt teaming up with a doctor and a chemist. After three to four tries in the laboratory, they began giving away their product to kids.  When it clicked, Tim Flatt and his team decided to start selling the product to other people. Product Expansion According to Tim Flatt, word of mouth was the most powerful part of his journey. They initially just planned on being in the sports market but what happened in the next five to seven years was not a business for them but more of a passion. “We looked at our demographics and ended up being predominately for people in their 50s, 60s, and 70s using it for arthritis. The market demanded it moves that way. Our goal was to provide a way for people to try it first and see the results and make the purchase,” said Tim Flatt. They initially promoted their Real Time Pain Relief product line in fairs and marathons. It was a home business at first, but Tim Flatt and his team called it to leverage wholesale marketing. Leverage wholesale marketing was a little different from network marketing because the focus was on selling products. Tim Flatt did that for seven years and always planned that it would be a temporary part of their business.  Business Shift In 2017, Tim Flatt converted the business to a wholesale rewards program. He says a lot of the people who were part of his home business, continued to be vendors in their program. “We have never had one complaint of side effect using our product in 20 years. Because we’re committed to the use of menthol at a much lower level than most companies,” Tim Flatt said.  He adds, “Most companies believe that one way to stop the pain is to mask it and to freeze the pain. We believe that it shouldn’t be that way. Hence, we use only a maximum of one and a half percent of menthol in our products.” Product Ingredients Tim Flatt explains that when you start using products that are 3, 5, 8, or 12 % menthol, it causes a dependency on painkillers. That’s how people move up to the prescription levels. So, there is indeed a significant danger. “For people in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, we saw the results when they started using our product,” Tim Flatt shares. “Before using our product, they stopped doing what they loved to do because the pain was just too much. It’s exciting to help people get their lives back.” Real Time Pain Relief products are effective in addressing so many pain issues. Among these are inflammation, migraine, insomnia, headaches, muscle, and joint pain.  It is also useful in treating eczema, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. PainkillerAwareness.org Tim Flatt regards PainkillerAwareness.org as his passion project. The month of December is PainKiller Awareness Month, so there’ll be a lot of posted information on painkillers throughout the whole month. “In 1998, there was a report revealing that almost a hundred million people were living in chronic pain,” shares Tim Flatt. “The report stated that during the year, a hundred thousand people are hospitalized for intestinal bleeding. And 16,000 of those people don’t come out of the hospital.” So, in 2012, Tim Flatt and his team decided to put out a website called PainKillerAwareness.org. He says they did some good, but at the same time, Tim Flatt admits they had the wrong philosophy. Some immediate questions of the group were: Why were doctors were writing out prescriptions for opioids? Why does the government not protect us? Why do drug companies produce lethal doses are available over-the-counter? Why are there three drug lobbyists in Washington, D.C. for every member of Congress? “In 2013, it fueled our fire because the Institute of Medicine came out with another report, which was a follow up 15 years later,” said Tim Flatt. “Instead of doing a new study on the people that were going to the hospital and dying, they took the same report with the same numbers 15 years later.”  He adds, “We decided that we needed to take a different approach. So, we created a Painkiller Awareness month. We picked December because there was no other major awareness month through that time frame.” Moving Forward This year, Tim Flatt is focusing on helping people take responsibility by knowledge and through knowledge for what they are taking. Because he says, only you can make a difference in your health. And you can make a difference if you know what you’re doing. If you are on pain meds, Tim Flatt says the most important thing is to get an exit plan. He shares that in fact, there was a study wherein six universities were involved in the research. In that study, more than half the people who have taken opioids along with topical pain relief eventually eliminated the opioids.  “When we see someone, who is struggling with mobility, we get excited. Because we know that our product can have a dramatic difference in a short period if they apply it on a regular basis,” Tin Flatt said. “Once they start moving, we know that the blood flow in the body helps a lot as well. And those are great success stories.” There have been many great testimonials over the years. Some of them claim to sleep better and go back doing the things they used to do after using Real Time Pain Relief products. Pain Cream For A Dollar When you link to Dollar Pain Cream, you get a sample Real Time Pain Relief.  Shipping is even free! That’s how much Tim Flatt can vouch for the effectiveness of his product. The pain cream lists 17 different ingredients which all help to decrease inflammation and pain in the body. There is currently a recent product with more than 17 ingredients because it contains hemp. “We had 9 in our original product. And then through the years, we added. When you sell a topical pain relief, the FDA does not allow you to make any claims about fighting inflammation. But we use 14 ingredients that are known to fight inflammation,” Tim Flatt said.  He adds, “For the most recent one, we started using wasabi extract. It sounds hot, but there is no heat to it at all. The main focus for us right now is to see what is out there, investigate, and test.”  Other Products There are more amazing products under the Real Time Pain Relief line. For the foot cream, the company added tea tree oil. This is because a lot of people have fungus. Hence, it functions more like a moisturizer and helps address cracked skin. “A lot of people use foot cream on the back because it feels a little bit stronger than pain cream. It can be used anywhere,” said Tim Flatt. “A lot of people like to layer our product. We don’t have any scientific proof that this works differently. It all comes down to what your body reacts to.”  He adds, “The FDA does allow us to say it relieves pain for arthritis. There are around 160 diff types of arthritis. The state of California recognizes fibromyalgia as a type of arthritis. So, we are free to talk about any arthritis.” Another product is the eczema cream which recently just came out and has hemp oil as well. However, Tim Flatt says their bestseller is a product called Maxx. Maxx contains a CBD extract. It is an isolate that has a 0.0% THC and comes from industrial hemp.  “Our hemp oil product is the only product that is federally legal for pain relief. And almost all products contain MSM, which is a plant-based painkiller,” Tim Flatt said. “Our four main products are the hemp, Maxx, pain cream, and foot cream. And our medicated lip balm is fantastic for alleviating pain and cracks.” Real Time Pain Relief products are primarily available in the United States. It is available also on Amazon Canada.  Making it available on Amazon UK is currently in the works as well as shipping their products to more countries.  For more information about their products, do check out their website.  Bio Tim Flatt is the Executive Director of National Christian HomeSchool Championships and founder of Real Time Pain Relief.

307 Healing Your Metabolism, Thyroid Function, Liver Health, Hashimoto's, Graves Disease, Integrative Health, The Metabolism Reset Diet, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Thyroid Disease, Naturopathic End

The Metabolism Reset Diet: Repair Your Liver, Stop Storing Fat, and Lose Weight Naturally https://amzn.to/2OIwYSS www.drchristianson.com Book - Metabolism Reset Diet   Metabolism Reset Diet http://learntruehealth.com/metabolism-reset-diet As a result, Dr. Alan Christianson became obese. According to him, his social life was most affected. Rather than go out, Dr. Alan Christianson spent time reading health books. He was also figuring out ideas on being deliberate about lifestyle. Hence, he was able to make radical changes.  Making A Change From the advice of those books, Dr. Alan Christianson’s first steps were cutting out bread with meals and processed sugar. He started taking protein shakes on a regular basis. Then he started exercising. He signed up for football one time, but he blacked out on the first day of practice. So, he took it slowly like running and doing weights. “How your body works and how your health was can be one of the biggest factors for whether or not you can be happy and fulfilled. I had seen some doctors about health issues and weight as well nothing was helpful,” shares Dr. Alan Christianson.  He adds, “That’s why I wanted to get into healthcare and medicine. I learned about the Naturopathic profession later in my studies. There were new schools in Arizona, and it was the perfect fit.” Seeing The Difference Dr. Alan Christianson saw a lot of differences between conventional and natural medicine. There was a big rift between conventional thyroid care and other alternative models. “I saw many examples in which the alternative models would help a lot, and some did not. It impressed upon me that there were these hormones that were just huge factors as an intersection between lifestyle and health,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “They were off in some ways. A lot of the struggles that people had were struggles like I had myself.”  He adds, “But the things that I would have just done or that I did do wouldn’t always make a difference for them. Unless they had their hormones corrected and back to a good place. So, it just became a calling for me.”  Hashimoto’s Disease Hashimoto’s is a disease in which the immune system breaks down some essential structural components of the thyroid. And leaves it just unable to produce enough hormones. “About 26% of the time, Hashimoto’s goes away. It completely stops by itself and reverses. And a person who experiences that has a higher risk of developing other versions of thyroid disease over time. But for many of them, they’re done with it,” Dr. Alan Christianson said. Graves’ Disease On the other hand, Dr. Alan Christianson says Graves’ disease is like a short circuit on a doorbell. It’s also an immune attack. “The thyroid is always opening the door and pouring our hormones even if your body quit asking for it a long time ago. It ends up producing too much thyroid hormone,” explains Dr. Alan Christianson. “And the part that’s not intuitive is that it’s almost the same disease like Hashimoto’s. They’re so close to each other in terms of what gives rise to them and a lot of steps on how to treat it.”  He adds,” Graves has a much higher rate of remission once you can pull someone out of the thyroid being overactive. So, once you can stabilize your hormone levels, about 95% of the time, Graves’ disease quits within about 12 months.”  Dr. Alan Christianson also says that despite the similarities of Hashimoto’s and Graves, they’re often different on how they play out their symptoms. And they overlap. A lot of people have both of those conditions.  Blood Markers And Tests Blood markers are useful and are useful tools. But Dr. Alan Christianson says the main drawback about them is that we’ve got these reference ranges which come from just averaging the scores from people who get their test done. “Other tests or markers are just population averages. You can cut off points to where you exclude two and a half percent that defines a normal just statistically. And that’s where the high and low ranges come from for thyroid markers,” said Dr. Alan Christianson.  He adds, “And the drawback about that approach is most people who get thyroid tests have thyroid problems. That’s why they are being tested. Many of them are already on treatment. And once you get tested, the most who are on treatment are not stable.”  Analyzing Results Dr. Alan Christianson reveals that people who have healthy thyroid scores contribute less towards that averages. And the standard becomes more represented among those who have thyroid disease. So, the implication is, you have to be at an unusual level to get flagged in that context. “If you look at a couple of different values for the thyroid, the main one is called TSH which is your brain telling your thyroid to work. So, what happens is that the healthy people have much lower TSH scores than people who have thyroid disease,” Dr. Alan Christianson said.  Regarding numbers, Dr. Alan Christianson says between .4 and 4.5 is normal. But there have been studies done in people who don’t have thyroid problems. Those tests show that they don’t have scores above 1.9. And according to Dr. Alan Christianson, that is a little unusual. “They also don’t have low scores. Many say that it’s okay to be below normal or to take medication to make the TSH low and that’s dangerous,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “Another pitfall is that there is an antibody test that can show if there is an attack against your thyroid. And if that’s there, it completely confirms Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease.” In the case of Graves’ disease, Dr. Alan Christianson says only about 0.3% of people with Graves’ disease do not have measurable antibodies. Hence, it’s a pretty good correlation. But with Hashimoto’s, it’s not like that. About half the people with Hashimoto’s do not have measurable antibodies. Important Components His core health issue was Dr. Alan Christianson’s main focus when he was younger. He recalls it resurfacing a few times during adulthood. Now that he is in the medical profession, Dr. Alan Christianson makes it a point to always ask his audience about their significant needs. According to him, there are three things we try to line up– energy level, weight, and appetite. And it is vital that we have to control all of those components. Dr. Alan Christianson believes that people have different ideas on what healthy diets are. Everyone knows if they do something extreme, they will lose weight. They do things ranging from cut out all animal foods, eat non-paleo foods, or go on a ketogenic diet. But most of the time, it doesn’t last. Because we end up not feeling well and our energy tanks in the short-term. Most of the time, our appetite also goes out of control. Ultimately, the trick is how you can balance out your energy, appetite, and weight again. Liver Health Dr. Alan Christianson says the main glitch that’s out of place for most people is the liver function. None of us get exactly the amount of food we need for a given day. We always get a little bit more or a little bit less. It’s never precise. And when we’re healthy, it’s our liver that buffers all that. “If your food intake is above your needs, your liver can’t easily store that. It stores it as toxic fat inside the organs,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “On the other hand, if you had too little food intake for the day, your body will crash. Your food cravings will show up; you’ll have brain fog and many other consequences. The liver is a big part of how you regain that.” The Metabolism Reset Diet The program where Dr. Alan Christianson applied the metabolism reset diet was initially for reversing type 2 diabetes. He learned that as people were developing this condition, the liver gets clogged with fuel that we can’t hold anymore. And that’s why blood sugar is higher. It was making blood sugar out of their liver as they were sleeping. Dr. Alan Christianson says there are some specialized tests where you can tell which part of someone’s blood sugar came from the liver and which parts came from a recent meal. Most people who have diabetes risks will also have high blood sugar after a meal. But when you break it down like that, Dr. Alan Christianson says almost all the blood sugar comes from the liver and not from the meal. “But the liver is a very resilient organ. In theory, you can lose 80% of it, and it can grow back again. It’s not so much about the goal to have a diet that makes you continue to lose weight. And it’s important and helpful to do so, but it’s a strain on the body,” Dr. Alan Christianson said. He adds, if you go longer than six weeks, you can start harming thyroid function and impairing metabolism. So, it’s not good to be in a weight loss mode for too long. Plus, it’s essential to have adequate amounts of protein during that phase.” Ketogenic Diet As for the ketogenic diet, Dr. Alan Christianson explains that anytime you’re at a deficit of fuel, your body will convert a little bit into ketones. And it’s been a debate about whether the ketones are helpful or if they just happened to be around while other positive things are happening around the body. Ketogenic refers to a state in which the body can only make ketones because it got so little proteins and carbohydrates coming in. In that case, Dr. Alan Christianson says that’s a separate variable than being in a state that could cause loss of weight or loss of body fat. So, you gain weight when you’re ketogenic, and you can lose weight when you’re not. It’s all a matter of total fuel intake. Recommended Diet Program Dr. Alan Christianson got a bias towards plant proteins. A big one is because of the ph effects. He believes that when our body goes through a detox phase and pulls out old wastes from the liver, there’s a lot of things that can concentrate like uric acid. But if there’s also a substantial ph challenge, then there’s a considerable risk for things like gout or gallstones. So, Dr. Alan Christianson says it’s essential for the body not to have many acids to clear. “There are three main parts to the program like two shakes in one meal. I do strongly encourage vegetable protein for the shakes,” Dr. Alan Christianson suggested.  He adds, “Phytonutrients are phytotoxins. They’re actually poisons, but the amount they get in food can be strategic. And they can actually make the liver work better in ways it can be useful.” Resistant Starch There’s also a lot of resistant starch in Dr. Alan Christianson’s diet program. He believes resistant starch does an excellent job in helping the liver have less strain from the intestinal tract. Plus, resistant starch is the best side of carbohydrates and fiber but the worse of neither. “The best part about carbs is that you can fuel the body and create healthy blood sugar from that and the negative part is that you need hormones to manage it,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “And the best side of fiber is that you can fuel good bacteria, but the bad part is that it can cause mineral malabsorption. It can also create imbalances in bacteria.” He adds, “The cool thing about resistant starch is that you got fuel and you can make it into glucose. But unlike every other food, it’s not absorbent in small intestines. It only absorbs gradually in the large intestines.” Dr. Alan Christianson says you can get resistant starch from regular white potatoes when they are boiled. The same goes for white beans and bananas. With bananas, however, once it is ripened, you lose a lot of resistant starch. There are also supplements for you to be able to get the recommended daily requirement for resistant starch. But Dr. Alan Christianson says it is better to get it from food. And remember to go slow and check how you feel whenever you eat something. There have been many success stories of people who tried Dr. Alan Christianson’s diet program. Many had weight loss, but waist loss was dramatic. Dr. Alan Christianson shares that many people have waist loss of about 2. 5 inches within 28 days. Some have even reversed their health problems. The Metabolism Reset Diet Book Dr. Alan Christianson’s The Metabolism Reset Diet book contains a wealth of information on how to do this four-week cleanse naturally and effectively.

306 How To Kill Dangerous Mold Safley and Permanently in Your Home, Office and Car, Mold, Bacteria, and VOC Testing and Natural Effective Mold Mitigation, Removing Mold Odor, Green Home Solutions, Jef

http://www.greenhomesolutions.com GreenHomeSolutions.com YouTube Videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRft8D4_C6r6CkOFXoqGPaw   Molds http://learntruehealth.com/molds Molds can significantly harm our health. More often than not, we take it for granted, or we spray chemicals on it which makes the situation worse. That’s why I’m thrilled to have Green Home Solutions CEO Jeff Panella on the show because he says there’s a safe way to rid of molds and even odors naturally. Helping Others Jeff Panella shares that ever since he was a child, he has always been more about helping others. He fulfilled that passion when he had an opportunity to join the effort and initiative of creating a healthy indoor air environment through a lot of different avenues. “I quickly learned that although I do like to make money and I like to have a career, I was interested in doing more than that. When I realized I had a knack for leading people, I wanted to lead them in the right direction,” said Jeff Panella.  Personal Experience Jeff Panella shares that before joining the Green Home Solution company, his mother-in-law who was 83 years old then got very sick. He describes his mother-in-law as a very Holistic person. The following winter, she got twice as sick and got pneumonia. So, Jeff Panella called Green Home Solutions who did a pre-test at her home. Sure enough, they found the worse kinds of molds that cause migraines and respiratory issues. That situation happened four years ago, and Jeff Panella’s mother-in-law never got sick again. Because of that positive development, Jeff Panella was thrilled to join the Green Home Solutions team when the founder Russ Weldon asked him to come aboard and help grow the organization. Green Home Solutions Jeff Panella eventually worked for Russ Weldon who founded Green Home Solutions. According to Jeff Panella, Russ Weldon was a visionary because he created things and created a business that no one has done yet. Like Jeff Panella, Russ Weldon had an incredible passion for people and helping others. So together, they help people feel better by helping them with their indoor environment and live better lives. Eventually, his passion became Jeff Panella’s passion. “When he came into the company, we were actually at the time a mosquito company. We were trying to get rid the environment of mosquitoes naturally. It was very hard without using chemicals in that business,” Jeff Panella said.  Russ Weldon didn’t want to do anything with these nasty chemicals, so Jeff Panella sold out the mosquito business. Green Home Solutions then evolved over the years and offered guarantees ranging from two to four years. “About 98% of what we do is done in one day. The homeowners can be confident that when they go back into this environment, the environment is clean and sterilized,” said Jeff Panella. Franchise System Jeff Panella came aboard to continue to facilitate the passion for helping people all over the nation. Building the business was challenging but fulfilling. Jeff Panella says the great thing about their franchise system is that they have local people helping their fellow local people. “Every franchisee starts a little bit slow and testing the water. They come from all walks of life. We help them through the initial start-up phase. On the third month, franchisees are not only into testing but also remediating molds. It’s very likely they have probiotic work then also bacteria work,” Jeff Panella said.  He adds, “But on the fourth month in business, there are usually several paying clients by then. We show them how to network to different verticals like realtors and holistic doctors, etc. Ultimately, we have a business model that’s like a recipe for success.”  Serious Issue The public is now just starting to be educated about the severity of molds. According to Jeff Panella, almost every real estate transaction usually has a mold test done, including a pre-test and post-test. These tests can show the severe impact of molds on families. “This issue with molds and odors is a global issue. With the movement around conserving energy, so not they are not losing heat, we cut off the air circulation,” said Jeff Panella.  He adds, “Homes were designed to breathe. And the better they breathe, the less molds they might have. Regardless of what season it is, people can get very sick if molds are present.” My House Is Killing Me For those who want to have a good reference reading up about molds, Jeff Panella recommends the book; My House is Killing Me by Jeffrey May. The book talks about everything from molds, odors, allergen to dust mites. And Jeff Panella said it helped him to create this passion as well. Myth Busting Jeff Panella reveals that the biggest misconception is that bleach kills molds. But what happens is when you spray, the particles of molds go up into the air. He says you can wipe it dry, but the molds are going to grow back because molds grow with water. “Another thing is, you introduce another chemical into your home that doesn’t necessarily need to be there. Our products are natural plant-based products and specifically our mold product is an enzyme that eats molds until the mold is gone,” said Jeff Panella. He further explains that the enzymes break down the peptide bonds in the spores. And it cracks the shelves, turning the inside and outside into a non-allergic inert dust.  Remedy Steps Jeff Panella shares that they address molds with three main steps. First of all, they use a plant-based enzyme product to remediate the mold. Then they use a hospital-grade remediation machine product to kill nasty bacteria. The third step involves reconditioning the home. Because Jeff Panella says, the first bacteria that gets in the home will be the bacteria that grows the fastest. And you want that bacteria to be good bacteria. Jeff Panella also assures that they make sure none of the off-gases are coming up to the house. That’s why they recommend re-conditioning with probiotics long-term effects. Encapsulation Encapsulation encapsulates all of the off-gases by placing a liner very specifically installed and professionally installed through the entire crawl space. This way, Jeff Panella says none of the off-gases get into the home. “If you take care of the water intrusions and remediate the molds, molds should not come back. But if the molds come back, it’s an indication of another problem. We have several warranties, so if anything happens we can go back in,” assures Jeff Panella.  He adds, “There is no statistical data yet about probiotics preventing or killing molds. But if we keep our environment as healthy as possible with good bacteria, it’s going to prevent other bad bacteria from getting in there.” Furthermore, Jeff Panella shares that when they go in and remediate a home, they seal off different rooms and make sure they are not cross-contaminating the house. Jeff Panella also says that the kit has to be in the right place. That’s why they do a series of tests including the use of a canister that sucks in all of the environmental particles that are in the air. Only then can they determine what exactly is going on in that home.  Main Products Jeff Panella says their company has three main products: enzyme treatment, peroxide treatment, and probiotic treatment. Using these products, Green Home Solutions performs a pre and post-test in every home. “We do our protocols precisely. Following the protocols is necessary to clear all the molds. We have a 2-year guarantee. And because of our belief in probiotics, we’ll extend that guarantee to a four to five-year guarantee if you’re running probiotics regularly.” Green Home Solutions had probiotics in the system for about a year. Jeff Panella says he even tested the probiotics in his own home. He further explains that doing tests and treatments in homes, their clients who have the machines installed in their homes have a three-month cartridge. Once the cartridge runs out, Green Home Solutions can do a one-year supply. Overall, Jeff Panella claims that they have happy clients because they can feel the difference. And that means the product is working. Making A Difference Jeff Panella reveals that one of the leading causes of children missing school is asthma. And one of the leading causes of asthma is molds. So, schools are also very conscious about molds and budget concerns. “The fact that we’re fast, affordable and effective, we helped people and businesses and schools be more attracted to our concept. Joining our team creates this passion for helping people,” Jeff Panella said.  Affordable Green Home Solutions uses a third-party lab to obtain testing results. Jeff Panella says while some testing is inexpensive, it can cost up to hundreds of dollars depending on the severity of the place.  It can cost you anything from a hundred dollars to a couple hundred thousand dollars. “Where the home has the mold is also a big influence on price. And the attic is most impacted by molds. Plus, molds cause stains, but we do have peroxide products to address stain issues,” said Jeff Panella. Jeff Panella says Green Home Solutions also has odor products similar to the enzyme products that they use. The products can penetrate surfaces and address odors issues as well. Because according to Jeff Panella, odor issues are tough sometimes. And apparently, the hardest odor to deal with is cat urine. Mold Exposure Effects Ultimately, molds affect our immune system. Jeff Panella reveals that even a healthy person can feel the impact of molds, odors and other allergens. So, he says it is essential to do a full test to understand past present and future. “Molds affect people in different ways. But the reality is, the longer that someone lives with molds, odors or allergens, the more likely that cup is going to get full, and you’re going to experience issues,” said Jeff Panella. “We are out to make the world a better place and will do it one client at a time. and we’re going to continue to do that.”  Bio As CEO of Green Home Solutions, Jeff Panella is responsible for implementing the long and short-term strategic growth plans for the franchise system.  Jeff Panella brings more than 25 years of experience to his role as Chief Executive Officer of Green Home Solutions. Jeff Panella, along with his wife Joan, is very active in the community. The couple spends much of their free time volunteering and serving on boards for local charities. He also serves as a coach to several community sports teams and is active with the local Boy Scouts of America troop.  Before taking the helm at Green Home Solutions, Jeff Panella led the team at The Famous Toastery, a rapidly growing restaurant chain. His experience in multi-unit franchise sales and operations, as well as with small, medium, and Fortune 500 businesses will prove invaluable to Green Home Solutions.  Green Home Solutions has always been committed to helping franchisees succeed, and Jeff Panella fully supports that commitment. He is a Certified Franchise Executive and is passionate about ensuring that franchisees are satisfied and supported as they grow their businesses.  Jeff and Joan Panella have two children. Tim, the youngest, is a senior in college. Their daughter, Sadie, is a Sergeant in the Marines and has served three tours of duty.

305 The Safest And Most Effective "Flu Shot", How To Naturally Avoid The Flu, Mitigate Flu and Cold Symptoms And Develop Real Immunity Using Since Based Natural Medicine, Homeoprophylaxis, Homeopathy,

To Watch The Movie and get Influenzinum: www.realimmunity.org To work with Cilla for homeopath andHomeoprophylaxis as well as the free library: www.worldwidechoice.org   How To Naturally Avoid The Flu http://learntruehealth.com/flu It’s flu season again, and lots of people are getting sick with the unpredictable change of weather. But don’t scramble for the pharmaceutical shelves just yet. Because there’s a natural way of addressing the flu and avoid getting a flu shot. And my returning guest, Cilla Whatcott is the best person to teach us how to recover from the flu naturally. 2012 Flu Vaccine Study First of all, Cilla Whatcott reveals that getting a flu shot does not have excellent odds. But it’s going to help you. She cites a 2012 study by Cowling and Fang, who learned that when you get the flu shot, it produces antibodies for that particular strain of the flu. But on the other hand, it compromises your innate arm of immunity. “So, your cell-mediated immunity becomes more vulnerable to all the other circulating viruses. While you may have current protection from the current flu, you are opening up your susceptibility to all the other viruses that are circulating,” Cilla Whatcott explains.  She adds, “All the flu report we hear on media is misleading. Flu-like viruses are out there, and they are not the flu. Getting sick and getting well is part of being healthy. It’s not ever getting sick. It’s essential to exercise our immune system.” Effect Of Vaccines As for other vaccines compromising the innate arm of the immune system, Cilla Whatcott says this is where dis-regulation takes place. When you emphasize one half of the immune system, it compromises the other side. Because ultimately, true real immunity is based on a balance. “Vaccines are intended to create inflammation. But unfortunately, it’s indiscriminate. This inflammation takes place you see a dis-regulation of the immune system,” said Cilla Whatcott. “The immune system is designed to recognize a pathogen, raise an immune response, discharge, then resolution. As the system goes through those steps, true immunity is built.”  Furthermore, Cilla Whatcott explains that when you inject a child with eight diseases at one time, you are confusing the system. Because Nature doesn’t deliver eight diseases at once. “You deliver eight diseases at once through a needle, inject it into the system instead of to the mucous membrane as Nature does, and add more stuff to inflame the immune system,” Cilla Whatcott said. “With that, the system is going to try to discharge things by raising its inflammatory response.”  Right Food Choices We have always stressed in past episodes that food can be medicine. If we eat the right kind of foods, it heals and nourishes our body significantly. Cilla Whatcott says that by having a whole food, organic diet, it’s a great way to get vitamin A. It’s in all the orange vegetables, sweet potatoes, yams, and carrots. Vitamin D is also a critical component of healing. Because these two vitamins can help your immune capabilities.  Oscillococcinum There are over-the-counter homeopathic products, and the one Cilla Whatcott recommends is Oscillococcinum. She says it works better once you start contracting the flu. But Cilla Whatcott says there are also some other homeopathic remedies that you can use. Choosing a homeopathic remedy is based on specific symptoms. She says Oscillococcinum is broader, so you can take Oscillococcinum with any symptoms. Arsenicum But you if have some gut virus, vomiting and have diarrhea, Cilla Whatcott recommends taking Arsenicum. For those who are unaware, Arsenicum is made from arsenic. “Because if you took material arsenic, you would be vomiting and have diarrhea as well as all the other symptoms, like feeling chilly and anxious,” said Cilla Whatcott. “None of our homeopathic remedies have any molecule of material substance in them. They are completely energetic. Their frequency can’t do any harm.” Aspirin Aspirin, on the other hand, was newly discovered by 1918-1919. And it was a wonder drug. Because according to Cilla Whatcott, you could give the same aspirin to many people to reduce fever. “You didn’t have to take a case. The predominant method of medicine that time in homeopathy in the early 1900s required taking the individual case,” said Cilla Whatcott. Mortality Rate When you reduce the fever for flu, it very quickly goes to the lungs. Spanish flu, in particular, goes to the lungs and people were dead in 24 hours. For allopathic medicine, the mortality rate was logged at 28%. In contrary, the homeopathic patients did not have a lot of deaths because they weren’t reducing the fever. They were treating the symptoms of the flu, and it was very successful. “The goal is not to eliminate every symptom. But rather the goal is to support the body to balance itself. Because that’s how we’re designed to find that balance. And it will, as long as you don’t start suppressing every symptom,” Cilla Whatcott said. Influenzinum Cilla Whatcott reveals that there’s a double-blind placebo-controlled study out of Brazil for Influenzinum. In the study, Influenzinum was given to six hundred children under the age of five. They found that there were no injuries, no side effects, there was a success rate reducing symptoms. The frequency of catching the flu was also less. “Influenzinum can be sold in many different ways and many different preparations. You can find it online from some places where it is typed by the actual year or season for that pill,” said Cilla Whatcott. “I like to use a combination of historical flu, bird flu, influenza A and B, plus something called Bacillinum. This combination is good every single year.” She adds, “Nothing prevents the flu 100%. We are building your natural immunity so that you are more capable of resisting things.” Homeoprophylaxis Vs. Homeopathic Remedy Classical homeopathy is based on a person’s lifestyle and living environment. Cilla Whatcott says it waits until you are sick, and gathers all the data before determining anything. “Homeoprophylaxis is given prior so that you familiarize the individual with the frequency of the disease and epidemic. And homeoprophylaxis is made from the specific pathogen that is causing that particular disease,” said Cilla Whatcott. Homeoprophylaxis is not typically measured with double-blind placebo-controlled studies. It is in long-term studies where long-term health outcomes can be determined. “This is called effectiveness instead of efficacy. Efficacy is about building antibodies. Effectiveness is about taking the long view and seeing what happens to this population over time,” Cilla Whatcott explains.  Feature Length Documentaries To know more about real immunity, Cilla Whatcott has an amazing three-part video series which you can rent from her official website. The second one called Passage is already available for a 3-day rental at $9.99. If you want to watch all three, the first one is called The Quest for Real Immunity. It covers the fear surrounding disease, reveals the relationship between humans and viruses, and provides insight into trusting your intuition. Passage to Real Immunity tackles the safe and effective alternative to vaccines called homeoprophylaxis. This part is packed with interviews with doctors who use homeoprophylaxis including Dr. Isaac Golden, a leading researcher. There are also interviews with parents talking about the wonders of homeopathy. Also watch out for the interview with Del Bigtree, an expert who speaks on listening to your intuition as a parent. The third part, Choosing Real Immunity is slated to be released in 2019. And it will focus on a variety of tools to add to your immunity resources. Effectivity of Homeoprophylaxis Cilla Whatcott says no method is 100% effective. She said the original study was done over 15 years studying 3,000 children. It found that the HP kids had more robust immunity and better long-term health outcomes than even the organic eaters. “A child going through homeoprophylaxis treatment depends on the susceptibility of the individual. Some who have greater susceptibility is probably because their ancestors had respiratory illnesses,” shares Cilla Whatcott. She adds, “So when you take homeoprophylaxis, it satisfies a certain susceptibility. You become less susceptible to catching that particular disease. Your immune system knows how to mount an immune response and address it.” Critical Vaccine Studies Book Cilla Whatcott cited a great reference for vaccines. It’s called Critical Vaccine Studies by Neil Z. Miller. The book came out in 2016. The book shows studies pointing to the fact that benign childhood diseases like measles, chicken pox, and mumps, play a role in our long-term immunity. They help prevent chronic disease, tumors, and cancers. “There are many benefits from natural disease. Natural disease is what governs herd immunity, not vaccines,” said Cilla Whatcott. “It’s when the natural disease comes through that we develop herd immunity because that gives us life-long immunity. The antibodies produced by the body does not last a lifetime that’s why they keep adding boosters to the schedule.” Family Homeopathy Care Website For those who want to sign-up for courses and look at other offerings, link to the Family Homeopathy Care Website. There is a free knowledge vault containing over a hundred documents and divided into chapters. Which you can download. You can also sign up for classes where you can access anytime once you have an account.  The course on nine remedies for the flu is worth checking out. Classes cost $12.99 and are usually in Powerpoint format. Common Remedies for Influenza and Flu-like Symptoms Cilla Whatcott says Gelsemium is for incredible weakness and fatigue, eyes half closed, and headaches. Generally speaking, homeopathy is dosed while you have the symptoms. “You give three doses, half or an hour apart. And if there is an improvement, you wait and watch because your body will move in the direction of cure,” said Cilla Whatcott. If there is no change whatsoever, Cilla Whatcott says it may be because you’re on the wrong remedy. Hence, you need to re-assess the case. Plus, if you fall asleep, that’s a great sign. Because the body heals when it’s sleeping. “Stop taking the remedy when you are 70 to 80% better. If the symptoms change, you might have to change remedies,” advises Cilla Whatcott. “Don’t touch the pellets with your fingers. Tap them on the cap and pop into your mouth. Keep them away from high heat, microwave or strong-smelling things like essentials oils because those can stop the action of the remedies.” Taking Responsibility Ultimately, Cilla Whatcott stresses that we have to take responsibility for our health. You figure it out. It’s not a knee-jerk reaction. “That requires a learning curve which not everyone wants to do, but that is what lead me to where I am now. Medical school is not teaching some of the things that I see parents learning today on their own,” said Cilla Whatcott. She also says that our body has that headache or symptom to balance things out. It’s an expression of the disease. When you take something pharmaceutical, you’re stopping that expression. “When you take homeopathy, it’s just a frequency like music, prayer and radio signals. You are not physically manipulating the physiology of the body. You are simply providing a frequency to encourage the body to do what it knows how to do,” said Cilla Whatcott. Road To Recovery Cilla Whatcott says illness comes along in our lives with a message. So, respect the illness. Take the time you need and be good to yourself. She also says that one good thing to use for recovery is cell salts. And there is a combination of all 12 cell salts called Bioplasma. Bioplasma is available via 1-800-homeopathy.com. Ideally, it is best to take Bioplasma at the end of the flu. Take Bioplasma a couple of times a day for three to five days to reboot your system. Intake one cell salt at a time, then more effective if you target it at the actual need. “My goal is to educate and empower parents to know they have choices. You’re the expert for your child. No one loves your child as you do,” said Cilla Whatcott. “Your intention is always for their good. There are no real mistakes. You’re always making choices based on what you know. So, the goal is to know all you can to make informed choices.” Bio Cilla Whatcott is a board-certified classical homeopath with a B.A. from Arizona State University, a diploma from the four-year professional program at Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy, and a Ph.D. in Homeopathy.  She is an instructor at Normandale Community College and the author of“There Is a Choice: Homeoprophylaxis,” and co-author of “The Solution – Homeoprophylaxis.” Whatcott is also the executive director of Worldwide Choice. She likewise offers individualized homeoprophylaxis programs for adults and children.  Whatcott has been a guest lecturer in France, Scotland, Ireland, Indonesia, the USA, and Canada, and featured in episode 7 of The Truth about Vaccines. She has organized and directed international conferences in 2015 and 2016 about homeoprophylaxis.  Whatcott also has published articles in several periodicals and magazines. She likewise has a certification as a CEASE therapist for reversing vaccine injury. Get Connected With Dr. Cilla Whatcott!

304 Nutritional Endocrinology, Recharging Your Energy While Balancing Your Hormones, Immune Health, Lowering Stress and Regulating Blood Sugar, HeartMath, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

How to Break Free From Fatigue with Easy Homemade Hormone Balancing Elixirs That Work Like Magic https://doctorritamarie.isrefer.com/go/BreakFree1/duffnash Brain Boost Recipes https://doctorritamarie.isrefer.com/go/BBR/duffnash "Blended Greens for Health and Longevity" Free E-book https://doctorritamarie.isrefer.com/go/BlendedGreens/duffnash   Nutritional Endocrinology http://learntruehealth.com/nutritional-endocrinology Not many people are familiar with nutritional endocrinology. And yet it’s one of the essential things to know with regards to our health. Because with nutritional endocrinology, we learn how our body works. To enlighten us on how to recharge, gain energy, balance hormones, and lower stress, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo expounds on the components of nutritional endocrinology in this episode. Personal Experience Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo describes herself as a hyper-achiever during her 20s. As a result, her health started falling apart. Going to a doctor, she was prescribed to take valium to take care of her constant headaches. Working hard after college also had its consequences. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo had to deal with chronic sinusitis and brain fog apart from her constant headaches. Initially, she didn’t know she had fatigue because she didn’t feel tired. It’s because she was drinking a lot of black tea and diet coke, which were both high in caffeine. Finding A Cure Trying to find a cure for her health issues, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo decided to get herself tested for ulcers. She went to a gastroenterologist who told her she didn’t have an ulcer. But the doctor also told Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo that because she had no idea what was wrong with her, the doctor advised Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo to keep taking the medication meant for ulcers. That made Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo think. Why would she have to take medication for a condition she didn’t have. Hence, she started questioning a lot of other things. One of them was diet. So, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo asked her doctor if her condition had to do anything with her diet. Her doctor disagreed. But Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo didn’t listen and proceeded to figure out how to change her food choices lifestyle. In the end, she did get well.  Helping Others Her heath obstacles fueled Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s desire to help others. She wanted to be the person who helps people get well and not take years to do so. Losing her parents and sister to illness strengthened Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s goal to carve a meaningful career path. Pursuing further knowledge, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree and Masters in Nutrition. Shortly after, she started her practice. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo began to a lucrative career in 1996 and was one of the few women professionals in the industry at that time. Diet Issues Realizing the food played a big part in nutritional endocrinology, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo started to eat more vegetables. She began eating salads and fresh fruits. Eventually, she also gave up milk. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also started eating whole wheat bread but then switched to whole grains. She also decreased her alcohol intake. Fasting Wanting to improve her health and learn more things, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo found a doctor in New Jersey who worked at a medical nutrition center. That doctor found that Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo had candida overgrowth. Because of the discovery, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo was advised to make significant efforts to take out sugar and alcohol from her diet. As a result, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo started to feel better after that doctor suggested fasting. Fasting changed Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s life. Ideally, proper fasting takes 28 days. Either way, before you do fasting, it’s best to get guidance from a trained professional. “Fasting depends on the person. If you are stressed, it produces more cortisol, increases blood pressure and blood sugar,” explains Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. “Do not over-exercise. Do a periodic short fast because cortisol prefers breaking down muscle.” Ideally, we are supposed to do fasting for 12 hours overnight. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says the people who advocate eating every two to three hours to keep a nice steady blood sugar are clueless. Because they don’t know the physiology and biochemistry of how the body works. “It’s the worst thing to do if you want to maintain a healthy weight. Because insulin suppresses growth hormones. It suppresses the ability to burn fat,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo explains. “And that’s not a good thing. So, exercise regularly. Hunger also stimulates growth hormones. You don’t have to satisfy hunger as soon as it hits.” Regulating Food Intake Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says it is dangerous to have constant access to food. It puts you in an insulin state all day long. She advises not to stretch hunger for hours because it would turn into a stress response. “Typically, if you get hungry and you can comfortably go three hours without eating, and start to lose it, start first for 15 minutes and gradually build up by trying to adapt,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. “The more you choose the way you’re eating, get rid of the processed sugary foods that cause the blood sugar roller coaster ride. Eat good healthy fats, and the body will eventually adapt beautifully.” Foundational Lifestyle Habits Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says there are foundational lifestyle habits that everybody needs to adapt and get in balance. She calls them the body freedom foundation. Because when we have these foundational lifestyle habits under control, you get the ultimate freedom in your life. First and foremost, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo advises that we have to make it fun. How much fun are you having? Most people aren’t. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says most people who are sick are higher achievers, and they feel that fun is not a good thing. Next is restful sleep and not sleep with the tv on. She says waking up in the middle of the night is a sign that you have low blood sugar and stress. “It’s amazing how many people fall asleep with the tv on, eat right before bed, do real stress activities and expect to get a good night’s sleep. Having a clean environment is also an important factor to consider when it comes to destressing your body,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also stresses the importance of diet. It’s not just about eating a healthy diet or eating less and exercising more. There’s more to it than that. Think about how to put the best diet in place for yourself. Next is an outlet. Think about what your outlet is and if you have an optimistic outlook. Do you have a goal that you are working towards to? Is there reasoning why you want to change what you want to do? Finally, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo mentioned mindfulness. Take it one at a time. Because in most people, fasting blood sugar is the last thing to change. A lot of that is something happening overnight. Something stressful is raising the cortisol levels. We can confirm it by doing a cortisol test or saliva test, a 24-hour urine test to figure out if what you are feeling is stress-related.  Energy-Related Issues Sometimes, health issues are related to parasites. Parasites are active in laying their eggs overnight. If that happens, it keeps people awake. There is no restful sleep, and the sugar is high. Another indicator is getting up several times a night to go to the bathroom. That can contribute to high blood sugar. “The things that create energy are mitochondria. Mitochondria are in every cell in the body. And they take sugar and oxygen, come up with ATP, which is the energy currency of the cells,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo explains.  She adds, “When something is wrong in that mitochondria, we’re not going to create much energy. We don’t have enough of the nutrients. It can take a while to replenish nutrient deficiency. And they might not have the right amino acids which explain protein malabsorption.” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also reveals that the adrenals could be stressed out from years of stressful life. Plus, the thyroid is the thermostat for every cell. It dictates how much we are going to burn oxygen to make energy. So looking at thyroid issues is also essential. “Shallow breathing could also be creating a problem. They are not getting full oxygenation to their tissue. That could be creating the deficiencies of any of the nutrients. If someone has switched their diet, they have not replenished the nutrients that got depleted from a previous diet.” That’s why Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo trains nutritional endocrinology practitioners and other health professionals to look at the big picture. Bottom line, stress and all kinds of trauma are significant contributing factors to deteriorating health. It’s about how we look at it, how to unpack and correct them. Heartmath Shifting from sympathetic to parasympathetic and transpersonal energy healing is something Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo offers in her program. Tapping is a fantastic method to address trauma as well. “Heartmath helps people shift from stress mode to rest, digest and heal response in the body. It’s a simple process that’s been studied very scientifically from the Institute of Heartmath,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo.  She adds, “It’s a combination of deep, diaphragmatic breathing and appreciation. They measure people before and after. I recommend people do this throughout the day before each meal because it helps to digest.” Heartmath Method First, you can do this method with open or closed eyes. Place your right hand on your heart, left hand on the belly to focus attention. Take in slow, deep breaths. Hold it at the top of the breath and let it go. “If you feel like taking another breath, push a little bit further and take another long deep breath. Pay attention to your shoulders and neck, allow to soften and relax,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo said.  She adds, “Take another long, slow, deep breath. This time as you are breathing in, transport yourself in space and time where you can be appreciative. In that state of relaxation, bliss, and appreciation, you shift and change the chemicals in your body.” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo explains that at this point, hormones improve, as well as blood pressure, enzymes, immune system, and digestion. Then when you are ready, slowly open your eyes and come back to the present with the intent of bringing that back in with you. And know that anytime within that day, you can go to this place.  Food Choices Foods that are stressful to the body are foods that amplify our need for detox. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo reveals that it damages the tissues in our digestive tract. “Coffee contains acid and caffeine. It revs people up, gets them out of parasympathetic and into sympathetic. You can stress the system. Green tea is better because even if it has caffeine, it’s less than coffee. It has antioxidants that support the liver, and it’s not alkalizing,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Reducing Stress Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also says sugar and pesticides are stressful to the system. The same goes for processed food. So, it is best to reduce the toxic load to restore the adrenals to minimize the stress load. Evaluate where is the stress coming from. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo strongly recommends doing Heartmath techniques five times a day before meals, before you get out of bed in the morning and before you go to sleep. Recommended duration is 30 seconds to 2 minutes. “The adrenals need vitamin C more than any part of the body. So eat vitamin C rich foods as well as supplements. The recommended dosage is 1,000 milligrams three times a day to build adrenals,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo advised. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also recommends her energy elixirs. It can be taken via a cold or hot drink. Either way, there’s always some tea or water as a base. Blend it with some healthy fats like coconut butter or shredded coconut, hemp seeds, and add herbs. She also says medicinal mushrooms help adrenal function as well as lime or orange essential oils. Additional Resources Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s website is packed with great resources on how to regain optimal health naturally. Aside from an online shop, you’ll find links to her books, programs, and upcoming live events so do check it out. “My message is empowerment. Empowered self-care. Learn how your body works and how it’s all put together. And learn about lab testing so that if there are lab tests you need, learn what to ask your doctor for,” advises Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. “They don’t know about nutrition. You can’t put your health in the hands of someone else. Because you need to take charge. That’s when true health happens.”  Bio Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo is passionately committed to transforming exhausted high achievers all over the globe into high energy people who love their lives and live to their full potential.  She founded the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology so that she could be instrumental in transforming our current broken disease-management system into a true health care system where every practitioner is skilled at finding the root cause of health challenges.  Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo specializes in using the wisdom of nature married with modern scientific research restore balance to hormones with a special emphasis on thyroid, adrenal, and insulin imbalances.

303 Post Betrayal Transformation, Forgiveness, Shame, Energy, Fatigue, How To Heal, Growth, and Change, Transpersonal Psychology and Human Potential Ph.D. Dr. Debi Silber

https://pbtinstitute.com  https://pbtinstitute.com/about-pbt/   Post Betrayal Transformation http://learntruehealth.com/post-betrayal-transformation Betrayal can leave us exhausted, fatigued, anxious because of betrayal from the past. But did you know that post betrayal transformation can help get us on the road to healing? Dr. Debi Silber has a fantastic method and will explain what post betrayal transformation is about, in this episode. Personal Experience Betrayal is the breaking a spoken or unspoken rule. Dr. Debi Silber says it comes in so many disguises. She experienced a family betrayal but didn’t learn the lesson she was supposed to learn from that experience. The betrayal from her husband led Dr. Debi Silber to pursue a PH.D. program in transpersonal psychology. Transpersonal psychology is the psychology of transformation and human potential. “I became obsessed with transformation because I needed to understand how the mind works, why we do what we do and how could I heal from this,” shares Dr. Debi Silber. “Then I did a study on how women experience betrayal, what holds them back and what helps them heal.” She adds, “We can stay in any stage for years, decades or lifetime. And if we’re going to go from that shock of betrayal to that place of transformation, we go through five proven, predictable stages.” Discovering Post Betrayal Transformation Dr. Debi Silber made two more discoveries. Because betrayal felt so different for her. Through the study and her study participants, they coined the term post betrayal transformation. Post betrayal transformation is the state achieved after this specific healing of betrayal which involves so many other things. In addition to that, there’s grieving and all the things that happened with another trauma. “And then there was the third discovery. There is a collection of symptoms. These are physical, mental and emotional. It is so common to betrayal and became known as post betrayal syndrome. So, I have a quiz to see what level you are struggling,” Dr. Debi Silber explains. She adds, “Nobody brings us to our knees like a family member or a partner. When the people you trust the most prove untrustworthy. Who do you trust? It’s so devastating on every level because a primal need is to feel safe.” Dr. Debi Silber also says that betrayal destroys any sense of safety and security that we ever had. And one of the reasons why it hurts so much is because it is intentional. It’s beyond to what we can hold in our awareness and a shock to the body and mind. But ultimately, Dr. Debi Silber says there’s a way to heal from all of it.  Study Results In the study that Dr. Debi Silber conducted, it had fourteen brave women. They contributed to the study because they felt they had learned so much from their experience. And they wanted an opportunity to share it. The first thing Dr. Debi Silber did was sharing her story with the study participants. So, they know that Dr. Debi Silber has an idea of what they have been through. The stories were so different but the pain the same. And the methodology or ways they chose to handle it was different. “I assumed that the people who were hit the hardest would grow the least. But the ones who were medicated grew the least. Because they couldn’t deal with it,” reveals Dr. Debi Silber. “The ones with the least amount of consequence to their betrayer grew the least. And the ones who were so afraid to surrender also grew the least. They were also the most physically sick because there wasn’t a price to pay.” She adds, “When we’re betrayed, we’re protecting our betrayer. Because we don’t want our family to feel uncomfortable or upset them. Here’s where we need the support the most, and we’re the least likely to reach out for it.” This is also why at the end of Dr. Debi Silber’s six-week program, she offers two different certification programs. One is to be a certified PBT support group host. And the other is a certified PBT practitioner. Dr. Debi Silber says every single woman in the study said she would have benefitted from support. So, Dr. Debi Silber ended up creating this support group host to benefit women who need support. It is beneficial for the host as well because nothing heals more than when we teach. Five Stages From Betrayal To Breakthrough The first is a setup stage. This is what Dr. Debi Silber saw in every single participant in the study. It’s not a blame thing or any. She says if you imagine four legs of a table, the four legs stands for emotional, spiritual, mental and physical aspects. “Every woman in the study were so busy prioritizing the physical and the mental. It was as if their mind was telling them what their body should do, and they were one big to-do list. Doing a whole lot of doing and not much being, turning up the thinking and turning down the doing,” said Dr. Debi Silber. She adds, “So imagine the table. If you’re strengthening only two legs of that table, the table is shaky and unstable. If you are neglecting the spiritual and the emotional, you turn down your intuition.” Stage Two Stage Two is the breakdown of the body, the mind, and the world’s view. Dr. Debi Silber describes it as having this experience, and it is imprinted on your body and mind. You ignite the stress response, and you have all kinds of physical challenges. “Your adrenals are freaking out, and you are exhausted. The immune system is down, and your gut is wrecked, and hormones are shifting, weight changes, accelerated aging. And the mind is in a complete state of chaos, confusion and overwhelm,” Dr. Debi Silber enumerated. And then there’s the breakdown of the world’s view. Dr. Debi Silber this stage is how you see the world. It’s based on your rules. These rules govern on how you manage your life. If the people you trusted have proven untrustworthy and all those rules are shattered, it’s terrifying.  Stage Three Dr. Debi Silber says if the bottom bottoms out, you would do everything you could. This is where survival instincts emerge. It is the most practical stage. She also explains that stress response is still engaged because we’re in fear. Then when we know we’re safe, you slowly move into stage four which is adjusting to a new normal. Stage Four At this stage, your old normal does not exist anymore. But Dr. Debi Silber assures that it’s going to be okay. And if you believe that it’s going to be okay, you start turning that stress response down. You stop causing destruction. And when you think you can make this work, you now have a little more bandwidth for self-care. Stage Five Dr. Debi Silber lists down healing, rebirth and a new worldview as main components of this stage. The body starts to heal. Because now you’re more interested in your self-care. “You want to nurture yourself a little bit, and you want to move because it feels good. It’s a new mind based on a new set of beliefs. You are constructing based on where you are now. And you are creating this new worldview based on your experience,” Dr. Debi Silber said. She adds, “When we get to this state of post betrayal transformation, there is so much richness and texture, strength, and wisdom coming from us. And here’s where we are truly unshakeable.” Forgiveness Dr. Debi Silber says if you feel safe and valued, and you forgive, you’ll feel better for it. You have done something that takes a lot to do. If you do not feel safe and valued, and you forgive, you’re going to feel worse. “So many people in my study forgave before they were ready. They forgave before it was a new relationship. And things did not change. If you’re looking to forgive and rebuild, there are four levels,” explains Dr. Debi Silber. Window Of Willingness The first level of forgiveness is where someone is going from the most likely, and they’re the most receptive to forgiving and release. Dr. Debi Silber says forgiveness is a huge piece when it comes to betrayal. “It involves an apology, remorse, and restitution. Here is where empathy is high, and our heart is speaking to their heart. We are just connecting and taking full responsibility,” said Dr. Debi Silber. She adds, “Next level window closes a bit because defensiveness comes up. Here is where we are making excuses. Saying the word because over and over is an indication. You may be willing to forgive, but it doesn’t feel as good as level one.” As for the next level, Dr. Debi Silber says level three has blame. She calls it the two-sided slap. Here, someone did something and then blame you for it. The fourth level is flat out denial. Dr. Debi Silber explains that this is somebody taking no responsibility for what they said or what they did. People question the justice, but Dr. Debi Silber believes truth is karma’s job, but closure is up to us. “When you do the work, there is this strength that comes through because you’re not hiding. You are so secure on who you are and who you have become. With betrayal, you get these triggers all the time,” Dr. Debi Silber said. She adds, “The person who has caused the hurt, whether they are aware of it or not, their emotions are shame. Shame is the most physically destructive emotion we have. The only way to heal it is to bring light and honor to it.” But because we don’t want to face it, we do everything we can to numb and avoid the stress. We use food, drugs, alcohol or anything because we are desperately trying to distract ourselves from ourselves. On the other end of it, the other person who has been hurt is walking around with anger and bitterness, resentment and those emotions will take you down. How Betrayal Shows Up In The Body Dr. Debi Silber says the most common thing that we see is extreme fatigue. Digestive issues are so common. And so often the adrenals tank. Your immune system gets suppressed, and you end up not being able to fight off things you usually will be ready to fight. She also reveals that we may even be eating this wonderful diet but not getting the benefit of it because we are not retaining the nutrients as well. Then we go to these wonderful health experts who are incredible in addressing issues, but we fail to see that these are symptoms coming from unhealed betrayal. Book and Workbook Dr. Debi Silber’s The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind, and Life After a Life Crisis book and workbook are to heal from any life crisis. The book is purposely very short because Dr. Debi Silber wanted to make sure people read it. On the other hand, the workbook has lots of experiential exercises. It’s a great combination and a part of the 6-week program. The betrayal book is specifically around the five stages and how to move through them. It encompasses many types of life crisis. Links to the book are available on Dr. Debi Silber’s website as well as a quiz to help you discover if you are indeed suffering from betrayal issues. Six-week program Dr. Debi Silber assures that you can start where you are. And you don’t have to be at a particular stage to start it. She walks you through the five stages with experiential exercises to move you from one stage to the next. “What I hear from people is that they feel stuck in a certain stage. And that’s what brought them into the program. They may end up spending extra time on those activities until they move,” said Dr. Debi Silber. Dr. Debi Silber offers two versions of the program. One is the home study which you can do at home, at your own time and pace. It’s so inexpensive, and anybody can access it. The other version is the next level up. It’s a live interactive component that Dr. Debi Silber has in a private Facebook group. She also adds that to be a certified Post Betrayal Transformation host or practitioner, the six-week program is a pre-requisite. You need to know the five stages and experiential exercises to move you from one stage to the next. As an added treat to Learn True Health listeners, Dr. Debi Silber is gifting one Betrayal to Breakthrough Home Study Six-Week Program to one lucky listener. It’s worth $297 so do check out the Learn True Health facebook group for details. Bio-Energetix Field Dr. Debi Silber declares that she can only heal to the extent that she knows what you are struggling with. But she also said that sometimes, we do not know things that we do not have access to. “We have this Bio-Energetix field. And what this does is that it’s like biofeedback. Through a simple scan, your biofield gets compared to what is a perfect biofield. And then it will show any distortions in your field,” Dr. Debi Silber said. Dr. Debi Silber does it every month for herself, and it’s incredible what it’s able to pick up and what it has done. Ultimately, it shows what you prioritize. “I understand how painful it is and how much it hurts. But I also know that healing, transformation and the strongest version of you are on the other side of that,” said Dr. Debi Silber.  Bio Dr. Debi Silber, President/CEO of Debi Silber Companies, LLC. And the founder of www.PBTInstitute.com is a recognized health, mindset, empowerment and personal development expert. She’s a speaker, coach and author of the Amazon #1 Bestselling book: The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind and Life After a Life Crisis, The Unshakable Woman-The Workbook (the companion guide to the book) as well as 2 books recommended by Brian Tracy, Marshall Goldsmith, Jack Canfield and many more.  Dr. Debi Silber contributed to FOX, CBS, The Dr. Oz show, TEDx, The Huffington Post, Shape, Self, Health, Working Mother, Forbes, Psychology Today, WebMD, Ladies Home Journal, MSN, Woman’s World and Glamour to name a few.  After researching and conducting a Ph.D. study on how women experience betrayal from a family member or partner, Dr. Debi Silber has discovered a predictable and proven process taking women from betrayal to breakthrough. That process, coupled with 27 years of health, mindset and personal development training and coaching, enabled her to create a multi-pronged approach to help women heal (physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually) from the trauma of betrayal.  Dr. Debi Silber understands the demands of the busy woman because she’s one too.

302 The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils, Homemade Medicine, Safety Tips, Essential Oil Recipes, and Home Remedies, Dr. Z, Eric Zielinski

Gain free access to everything Dr. Z spoke about today: http://learntruehealth.com/oils Dr. Z's Book: The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils https://amzn.to/2D9wN1y   Essential Oils http://learntruehealth.com/essential-oils-2 Essential oils have so many uses. Its natural components can address numerous health issues like depression, anxiety, obesity, and inflammation. To teach us how to use essential oils safely and effectively, my guest Dr. Eric Zielinski will expound on that in this episode. Early Years Dr. Eric Zielinski shares that essential oils initially weren’t part of his healing story. On the contrary, it was fasting, supplementation, nutrition, and detox. He focused on things that he needed to do to be healed of addiction to narcotics, alcohol, and smoking. Dr. Eric Zielinski also reveals that he had a spiritual transformation when he was 23 years old. His mentor at the time told him body is a temple. And that he needed to honor God by taking care of his body. “When I was a kid I always wanted to become a doctor. I was raised in urban Detroit, got a decent job, managed a bank for a while, but my heart was to help people. Then I met someone who suggested I become a chiropractor,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. Shortly after, Dr. Eric Zielinski quit a good job. He moved to Georgia with his family to pursue studies on how to become a chiropractor, so he could open up a health center. A Whole New World In school, Dr. Eric Zielinski fell in love with research. And because of the necessity to pay bills, he started writing professionally as a public health researcher. His primary tasks were writing in academic journals and ghostwriting blogs. “That’s when I got introduced to this online marketing world. One of my clients commissioned me to write a series of public health reports about essentials oils. And that’s what got me,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said. Educating People Dr. Eric Zielinski does not sell essential oils. He just educates people through his books and platforms where he can teach people the truth behind essential oils. “The one thing people need to recognize is that price does matter. Frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, and rose are costly raw materials that require a lot of product to get a little bottle of essential oil,” explains Dr. Eric Zielinski. He says if it is cheap, chances are; the product contains synthetic ingredients. Same thing when it comes to sourcing. That’s why you can’t trust the label. “The same thing with supplements. No one is monitoring your supplement labels. That’s why my book is loaded with references from researches,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said.  He adds, “It all boils down to trust. Find out the source and what internal sourcing they have. There are no third-party governing agencies monitoring and evaluating these oils. The word therapeutic grade does not mean anything. It’s just marketing terminology. There is no standard. Ultimately, it’s about how your body responds to the product.”   Do The Research Digging deep for information goes a long way. Dr. Eric Zielinski says a company that has good quality sourcing, morals, integrity, and does the research is an ideal company. He also says most of the information online is absolute rubbish when it comes essential oils. Putting a drop of oil straight in your mouth isn’t entirely the best idea because you could burn the mucous membrane in your oral cavity. The same thing happens if you put a drop in your water. Oil and water don’t mix. Hence, you need something to combine them. “Randomized controlled trials in a sterile, clinical setting doesn’t exist in real life. Here’s the problem with research. You take people and try to isolate all variables, so you’re only testing one thing,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. Dr. Eric Zielinski believes we need more case studies. But the problem is, there has been a lot of negative response to case studies because they are called anecdotal. However, Dr. Eric Zielinski would rather have an anecdotal study than a sterilized non-clinical evaluation of what can happen to people aka randomized control trial. “It’s not that the research is doing anything wrong. But it’s what we have out there in the literature that is limited. And the limit is that we have very few human trials specifically when it comes to essential oils,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said.  He adds, “Because we don’t have big funding. We have grassroots efforts, and most researches come from overseas, like the Middle East, particularly Iran. We don’t have a lot of research from North America. And that’s a problem.” Volatile Compounds What are essential oils? Dr. Eric Zielinski says it all boils down to volatility or a volatile organic compound. That’s what essential oils are by definition. Those are the compounds that readily evaporate. “And those compounds through the steam distillation process are evaporating up. When they hit the condenser or the cooling tube, it gets to the point where it goes through. Then it re-consolidates, and you get up collecting as an essential oil,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said.  He adds, “Any particle that isn’t light enough to be evaporated and light enough to go through skin distillation is not part of the essential oil. So, when we have a tincture or extract, it contains volatile and non-volatile components. There’s a lot of things that are heavy, but they’re good. But they still don’t become an essential oil.” Doing It Naturally Dr. Eric Zielinski explains that our ancestors never used pure essential oils because they didn’t have steam distillation then. And that’s important. Because our ancestors used tinctures and extract. “By simply putting plant matter like a bunch of lavender flowers for example in a beautiful clay pot. Fill that clay pot with olive oil, let that seep for a few weeks or months,” advises Dr. Eric Zielinski. “You’re going to get a beautiful extract that includes some volatile and some non-volatile. But it all boils down into the different components that you are trying to utilize.” How We Are Designed To Be Dr. Eric Zielinski also says certain chemical compounds are just super potent in essential oils that you can’t get anywhere else. Because you can’t get the concentration. This is because the essential oil only contains a portion of what the healing plant matter contains. “Your body has been designed by God to interact with the chemicals in Nature. Not the chemicals invented in the lab,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said. “Essential oils are the essence of the plant matter that people have used to heal. They have different chemical constituency than your tinctures or extract.”  He adds, “Convenience doesn’t come without a cost. Every convenience we see on the shelf has a cost to it one way or another. If we step back and start challenging ourselves and manage our life, it is empowering.” Hand Sanitizers Dr. Eric Zielinski lessened the use of hand sanitizers. Because he believes that a little bit of dirt isn’t going to kill you. He says we have become obsessed with cleanliness. And we have become obsessed with the smell of cleanliness. “Our microbiome is 70% housed in our gut. And there is a skin microbiome that is more robust in our gut. So, we don’t need to be so obsessed. We are so far beyond the days of cholera and plagues annihilating our industrial civilization,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. If you want a hand sanitizer, Dr. Eric Zielinski says a pinch is fine. But he recommends getting a one-glass spritzer bottle. And for every one ounce of water, you want a high proof alcohol content as much as possible. One example is the 160 to 180 proof alcohol called Everclear organic grain alcohol. Dr. Eric Zielinski says just put ten drops of the alcohol and ten drops of essential oil that is wild-harvested. You can even put ten drops of aloe or 10 drops of vitamin E. And fill up the bottle with water.  “Water and oil don’t mix. So, use a high proof organic grain alcohol. If you can’t find that, use the highest proof of vodka,” advises Dr. Eric Zielinski. “It’s a minimal amount of alcohol, so it’s not going to dry your skin. And the essential oils are anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It even has aromatic benefits.”  Choosing Oils Budget-wise, Dr. Eric Zielinski says these are the oils you need for sure. Ylang-ylang, orange, peppermint, and clove. He singles out ylang-ylang, which significantly helps with anxiety related to stress. “Essential oils help the body and gives the body what it needs. Frankincense will help trigger the body to stop the blood flow to the tumor. Rosemary will bring balance to your high blood pressure. It is a hypertensive agent,” Dr. Eric Zielinski explains.  He adds, “Essential oils will bring peace and harmony to your body. If you have a disease or taking medication, you need to think twice about what you are doing. You need to think about your supplements, and even what you are eating.” Going Organic Dr. Eric Zielinski declares that he is more concerned about the end product. Same for supplements and food. Because our body’s chemistry today can be completely different tomorrow or even hour by hour. And what works for one person doesn’t mean it will work for another. You should only have positive reactions when you use essential oils and supplements. Dr. Eric Zielinski says if you apply a small amount of oil on your skin, even if it is diluted and develop a rash, pain or redness, that’s not detox. That’s an adverse reaction, either a chemical reaction or allergic reaction.

Dr. Eric Zielinski stresses the importance of pure water, air, good food. Make sure your home is a good haven. And get a good air purifier and water purifier. “You can live a life with clear mental capacity, with vibrant libido and energy, love and good mood even in your old age. That’s what life is supposed to be like,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. “You’re supposed to enjoy it. We need essential oils more than our great, great grandparents did because of all the stuff out there that is fighting us and hurting us.”  He adds, “We need to celebrate the successes along the way. It’s a journey and a marathon. This isn’t a sprint. The issues plaguing your family can go away.”  Bio The author of the National Bestseller, The Healing Power of Essential Oils, Dr. Eric Zielinski has pioneered natural living and Biblical health education since 2003. Knowing what it’s like to be sick from a young age and having recovered from several chronic diseases in his early 20s, he has been on a mission to share the evidence-based approach to natural living that empowered him to regain control of his health with the world. Trained as an aromatherapist, public health researcher and chiropractor, Dr. Eric Zielinski is an accomplished researcher with several publications and conference proceedings.  Dr. Eric Zielinski and his wife started their online ministry in 2014 with DrEricZ.com to help people learn how to use natural remedies, like essential oils, safely and effectively.

301 The Ten Hidden Energy-Draining Toxins That Are Robbing You of Health, Damaging Your Immune System, and Creating Disease and How To Detoxify Them, The Rain Barrel Effect, Dr. Stephen Cabral

Get access to everything Dr. Cabral spoke about in our interview here: http://stephencabral.com/Ashley Listen to episode 271 with Dr. Cabral: http://learntruehealth.com/the-rain-barrel-effect   Energy-Draining Toxins http://learntruehealth.com/energy-draining-toxins Energy-Draining Toxins are often undetectable. We think our living environment is safe, but energy-draining toxins surround us. To help us identify and find solutions to dealing with energy-draining toxins, I’m thrilled to have Dr. Stephen Cabral back on the show. Dr. Stephen Cabral was my guest on episode 271, and we talked about his book, The Rain Barrel Effect. This time, we’ll talk about energy-draining toxins negatively affect our health and damages our immune system. Understanding Our Body Dr. Stephen Cabral is a board-certified Naturopathic doctor. And he looks at the underlying causes that lead to disease or symptoms. “I try to put the body into a position to heal. First, I give it what it’s missing. And try to help remove through a gentle system of what it has too much of. Then I allow the body to heal itself,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. He says that for example, if you have Hashimoto’s, your immune system is attacking the thyroid. If you have rheumatoid, it attacks the joints. These are examples of immune system imbalances. “For allergies, asthma, brain fog, fatigue and a lot of other things, we call that the TH2 immune system imbalance. And that’s the chronic inflammation with some pathogen,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said.  He adds, “Since 80% of your entire immune system lies in and around your intestines, you know that’s where to look first. The gut is going to have its immune-based system. When that happens, and it sees something there that shouldn’t be there in the bloodstream, it goes after it and creates an immune-based cascade to remove it from the body.” Dr. Stephen Cabral also explains that if you look at it over time, building up to the point that there is inflammation in our gut, it imbalances our microbiome. And our immune system has been aggravated for so long; it eventually ends up in some autoimmune-based issue.   Finding A Solution All people can be helped. Dr. Stephen Cabral assures that a solution can be found if you find out what you are deficient in as well as what your toxicities are. Hence, in his practice, Dr. Stephen Cabral helps to replace those deficiencies and remove toxicities and heavy metals and gut-based issues. “Genetics don’t honestly make that huge difference except tell you what you are susceptible to,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “Because genetics loads the gun, but the environment pulls the trigger. That’s called epigenetics. And that means your genes can be turned on and off.” Changing the Mindset Dr. Stephen Cabral spent a decade trying to get well from the age of 17 years old to 27 years old. He went to so many amazing practitioners, but it was not until he was 27 years old that Dr. Stephen Cabral met his mentor who told him he needs to work both on the mind and body. “The only people that we see are not able to heal are those people that can’t allow themselves to move in that position,” shares Dr. Stephen Cabral. “Their mind has been made up that they are someone that’s meant to be sick or a victim of their disease. You could get well even if you were struggling for years like I was.” Main Forms of Energy-Draining Toxins Dr. Stephen Cabral says there’s a lot of chemicals or energy-draining toxins that we can easily avoid, but we don’t know are there. He says the dirty dozen list are the ones that are sprayed with higher levels of glyphosate which is a form of pesticide. Those pesticides are meant not to allow bugs to eat all the crops. “But the problem is, glyphosate although shown to not be harmful at a small dosage, it hasn’t shown what it could do over time to our microbiome,” reveals Dr. Stephen Cabral. “We have a hundred trillion bacteria, and those are bugs as well. And they are good bugs. They are supposed to be there.”  He adds, “When we take enough glyphosate, that’s the time we see a lot of intestinal based damage. And the glyphosate at the same time, with the dirty dozen, can’t be washed off.” Organic Acid Test Dr. Stephen Cabral explains that it’s a semi-five biomarker. The first one looks at yeast and fungal overgrowth because there’s a lot of people right now taking probiotics.  “But the problem is if you have a small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and you’re taking probiotics, you’re adding more bacteria to a gut that’s already full of bacteria,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said. So, if anybody comes in with bloating, gas, acid reflux, constipation or loose stool, Dr. Stephen Cabral usually recommends them to have an organic acid test and a stool test. “Because if you are starting to become imbalanced in the gut microbiome and the bacteria, you’re not able to process and make the same level of B vitamins,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “If you don’t make the same level of B vitamins, you don’t deal well with stress; you don’t deal with inflammation well. And that’s when the genetics matter.” Heavy Metals Heavy metals and plastic flame retardants are top of the list of energy-draining toxins.  It is even more harmful to pregnant women. Because the toxins could pass right through the placenta, to the umbilical cord, and to the unborn child. Dr. Stephen Cabral shares that there was a study that showed ten unborn children had an average of 200 toxins in their body. The highest one had 300 toxins before they were ever born.  Cookware If you think cooking food kills the harmful bacteria, you’re wrong. Having the wrong cookware is just as dangerous. So many people still cook on aluminum foil. And Dr. Stephen Cabral says when you do that, it gets worse if there is an acid-based food. Thus, he advises avoiding using aluminum pans. Aluminum spatulas are not safe as well, so replace it with bamboo spatulas for cooking. Dr. Stephen Cabral says using ceramic, porcelain, glassware and cast iron much better choices for cookware. He also advises steering clear of non-stick cookware, processed and smoked meats because it harms the kidneys. “If it’s man-made, your body is probably not set up to be able to deal with it properly. And that’s because your body was meant to deal with everything in nature but not these 77,000 man-made chemicals. Your liver is never meant to see that level of toxins,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. Toxic Plastics BPA was a big thing around ten years ago. And if one is not careful around avoiding toxic plastics, it causes more estrogen in the body. And Dr. Stephen Cabral explains that our body would not be able to properly eliminate it in its more toxic form which is an estrogen ester. “What happens is they can build up in the liver and circulate in the bloodstream. It’s worse if you are stressed. You get lower levels of progesterone.” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. Adverse effects of toxic plastics can also cause depression, bloating, acne on the chin and jawline, lower mood, excessive facial hair growth, increase in cellulite and water retention. Dr. Stephen Cabral affirms that these have nothing to do with eating too many calories, wrong foods or not exercising enough. Dealing With Stress Dr. Stephen Cabral explains that when we are stressed, the body down regulates metabolism and produces stress hormones. It increases heart rate and overall pulse. Furthermore, it can make you experience shortness of breath, headaches, migraines, and excessive sweating. Dr. Stephen Cabral also says fasting and skipping breakfast if you are stressed is not a good idea because it drags you further into that fight or flight. “If you’re in a state of high stress, your body produces cortisol. Your body will break down its liver glycogen to make your blood sugar rise. And it does that because burning fat is a very slow oxidizing fuel,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said.  He adds, “For pregnant women, in particular, my theory is that when women are in a more a survival based state, or higher stress environment, the body automatically down regulates progesterone and may result in an irregular menstrual cycle or makes it harder to get pregnant.” Cosmetics This is not good news for makeup junkies. Because Dr. Stephen Cabral says what you put on your skin is much more dangerous. So it’s best to know the ingredients contained in the cosmetics that you use. Other Negative Effects Because of energy-draining toxins, a lot of people are putting on toxic water weight and toxic fat because their bodies are swelling. But if you start to lose weight too quickly, Dr. Stephen Cabral reveals that you can have flu-like symptoms, skin rashes and headaches. Most people also have the wrong idea about metabolism. They think that metabolism can just be altered by what you eat. But Dr. Stephen Cabral says metabolism isn’t just calories. It’s about the actual energy and movement in the body. Stool test A stool test is best to look for parasites, H-pylori, and bacterial overgrowth. These are living things. And Dr. Stephen Cabral says living things produce waste. That waste then goes into your bloodstream, and your liver has to filter all of that. “In functional medicine, detoxification is focused on the liver, not the lungs or kidneys. This is because the liver filters all the blood in your body every six minutes,” shares Dr. Stephen Cabral. Detoxification In treating patients, Dr. Stephen Cabral helps wean them off supplements and make them do a seasonal detox for seven days. Generally, he tries to follow the Eastern-based practices with state-of-the-art based protocols. “We support liver detoxification pathways. All the blood filters through the liver. That’s our safety net,” explains Dr. Stephen Cabral. “It’s going to pull everything it can into the thousands of bile duct and creates something that’s called phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification.”  He adds, “Make sure you are drinking enough water so that you can eliminate it through your urine through the kidneys. Then make sure that you can sweat and open up those sweat pathways. Exercise, sauna, and cardio are also good for the lungs.” Proper Nourishment When our body is exposed to plastic and toxic things, our body has to take these toxins from the environment and break it down. Hence, Dr. Stephen Cabral firmly recommends that it is essential to eat cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, and similar green leafy vegetables. It is naturally high in amino acids that are going to allow our body to take these toxins. “You give the body more of the vitamins and more of this specific amino acids to allow phase 1 and phase 2 detox. So that your body can eliminate the waste through your gallbladder,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said.  He adds, “Phase 1 is a lot of the antioxidants, vitamin C and E, and natural vitamins. They would be all the B vitamins and folic acid.” On the other hand, glutathione is referred to as the mother anti-oxidants. Dr. Stephen Cabral says that when the liver needs to remove toxins, it looks towards glutathione. Aside from glutathione, selenium is one of the most underrated minerals including zinc. Both are necessary for the immune system, hormones, blood sugar, and thyroids. Sauna One of Dr. Stephen Cabral’s favorite recommendations to people is to have saunas. He shares that there was a recent European study showing that people who used saunas five times a week, and 19 minutes a day, decreased mortality by 42%. Cardiovascular death was reduced by 63%. Dr. Stephen Cabral recommends doing 20 minutes in the sauna at 150 plus degrees. If you have an infrared sauna, whether near or far, doing 40 to 45 minutes at a lower temperature of 110 to 140 degrees help in removing heavy metals. He also reminds everyone to keep hydrated. Mixing sea salt, lime or lemon in your water is a natural Gatorade to get your body to absorb the water better.  “The journey doesn’t stop. I’m continuing my research. And for those who haven’t found their answers yet, they are coming. I believe that,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “And I can’t recommend enough looking into functional medicine lab tests. It will give you concrete proof or begin protocol. Always keep moving forward. Don’t give up. The result is worth 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.  Get Connected With Dr. Stephen Cabral: Official Website The Rain Barrel Effect Cabral Wellness Online Store The Cabral Concept Facebook Instagram Recommended Reading The Rain Barrel Effect   Recommended Links: Links to topics from Episode 301 Episode 133 – Truth Behind GMO – Jeffrey Smith Episode 259 – Glyphosate – Dr. Stephanie Seneff   ************************************ Become A Health Coach-Learn More About The Institute for Integrative Nutrition's Health Coaching Certification Program by checking out these four resources: 1) Integrative Nutrition's Curriculum Guide: http://geti.in/2cmUMxb 2) The IIN Curriculum Syllabus: http://geti.in/2miXTej 3) Module One of the IIN curriculum: http://geti.in/2cmWPl8 4) Get three free chapters of Joshua Rosenthal's book: http://geti.in/2cksU87 Watch my little video on how to become a Certified Health Coach! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI ************************************ Do You Have Anxiety?

300 The Science and Evidence Behind CBD, Hemp, Cannabinoids, Non-THC Therapeutic Cannabis, Cannabidiol for Pain, Anxiety, Brain Health and How The Highest-Quality CBD is Made, Medterra, Jay Hartenbac

"The potential of CBD is undeniable. It’s my mission to help people learn about CBD and the second renaissance of industrial hemp in the United States." Your 15% discount code is LTH when you visit medterracbd.com MedTerraCBD.com   CBD http://learntruehealth.com/cbd When we talk about CBD or hemp, some people think it’s an illegal substance. But in fact, hemp and marijuana are different. I had fun doing this episode with Jay Hartenbach who happens to be a leader in the industry and will be explaining to us all there is to know about CBD and hemp. CBD is a legal substance. It is a safe and beautiful essence of an herb. Many benefits are attached to CBD and topping the list is its ability to support the nervous system and immune system. That’s why many states in the United States have legalized it for therapeutic reasons. Early Years Jay Hartenbach started getting into the industry with a group of friends in 2017. A college friend of his was very involved in the hemp industry and wholesale distribution. That friend was working with hemp farms in the US and abroad. And because Jay Hartenbach had experience in online marketing, that became an asset into establishing his company later on. He also had experience working on an online skin care product in graduate school and was involved in networking, website building, driving traffic and other skills. Medterra Jay Hartenbach started Medterra with the sole goal at the time of providing various manufacturers with high-quality CBD. His company established a partnership with the farm GenCanna, which was a pioneer in the hemp industry. Medterra worked with various manufacturers. During the early days, they had around 20 to 25 clients that they were supplying raw products to. “A lot of people were charging a high price for the CDB products they were selling. And we thought there might be a way to make it cheaper especially since we knew what the raw cost was. We also wanted CBD products to be more accessible,” said Jay Hartenbach. The company shipped their first product in June 2017. Within two months, they were selling in all fifty states and started getting orders internationally. “Our priority was to meet the demands of our customers which at the time were mostly family and friends,” shares Jay Hartenbach. “We have focused as just industry and educating people, making sure that they understand what they are getting.” Marijuana Vs. Hemp When we look at the cannabis plant, which encompasses both marijuana and hemp, the distinction you make between the two is the concentration of THC. Jay Hartenbach says if it has less than .3 percent THC by dry weight, it is considered as hemp. “More than .3 is marijuana. If you’re looking at it at a genealogy standpoint, they are from the same family of plants. It just the actual expressions of those genes that determine how much CBD and how much THC that they are producing,” Jay Hartenbach explains.  Choosing Hemp Jay Hartenbach says his company chose hemp plants to extract because they have a higher concentration. Plus, it is more efficient and allows them to sell nationally and internationally. They can’t derive it from marijuana. It takes a lot of processes to make a good CBD product. Jay Hartenbach narrates that upon harvest, the CBD plant begins to degrade almost immediately after it is cut down. So, Medterra’s target is within 24 hours; they have to have the biomass dried and dehydrated to very low moisture content. “A hemp plant may have 30% water by weight at the time of harvest by the time we are dehydrating it, so we can preserve CBD if it’s down to about 3%. That happens through a drying process which activates the CBD,” said Jay Hartenbach. He adds, “So, it converts to a CBDA molecule to CBD. That is very similar to the process people are familiar with where marijuana has to be activated.” Jay Hartenbach furthermore reveals that because they are aware that people want the whole plant extract, Medterra started working with another lab who developed a novel technique wherein they can remove the THC but keep everything else in there. There is no organic certified hemp or CDB in the United States. So, they have to grow it naturally, and they can’t use any synthetic pesticides. There’s a social benefit of doing it naturally. Therapeutic Effects of The Extract With the used of CBD, Jay Hartenbach affirms that the reports have been astounding. This is because he says CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also affects neurological activity. Over 50% of diseases have some inflammation. Examples are arthritis, sore muscles, and sore joints. It also affects the GI tract and Chron’s disease. “By CBD helping to reduce the inflammation, it helps regulate neutrophil activity which is why we believe it helps so much with arthritis. CBD also helps with anxiety because it helps regulate the serotonin levels in the brain,” said Jay Hartenbach. Receptors Talking about the CB 1 and CB 2 receptors, Jay Hartenbach says one of the things a lot of people do not know is that our body produces cannabinoids internally. CBD can be found in high concentrations in breast milk. And that throws a lot of people off. “The compounds that we look at in hemp versus what the body produces and the way we differentiate them is wellness and endocannabinoid. That’s where the endocannabinoid system comes from,” Jay Hartenbach said. “So, if we produce it internally, if we consume it orally or apply it topically from a hemp plant, those are phytocannabinoids.” Furthermore, Jay Hartenbach says research is suggesting that potentially low concentrations of omega 3s can hint at the body producing CBD. And the other cannabinoids that interact with our endocannabinoid system which is where the phytocannabinoids supplementation is can aid us. “That’s why people see such a significant response in anxiety or arthritic issues,” said Jay Hartenbach. “There have been some concerns that CBD is not able to penetrate the skin, but we’re getting the research right now that dictate otherwise.”  Batch Testing Jay Hartenbach assures that his company tests every batch. And they test in multiple levels. Part of it is trying to adhere to the regulations. But it also has the benefit of making sure that in every stage of the process, they can have a test to go back to.  “The first place that we do is at the point level. Right now, Medterra has fields in Kentucky that are dedicated to Medterra only. We work with the farmers to cultivate the hemp plants. And we also make sure that is no heavy metal contamination,” Jay Hartenbach said. Quality Control Jay Hartenbach says hemp and cannabis plants in general, can be used to clean the soil. This is because they are so useful in absorbing nutrients around them versus a plant like tobacco. “We also make sure there is no pesticide contamination from nearby agriculture. Our product is also THC-free,” said Jay Hartenbach. “There are also no residual solvents from any of the extraction. No heavy metals were concentrated in that actual production. We also make sure there is no cross-contamination and that the dosage is right. Because we like to have control of the testing.” As far as transparency, Medterra posts result on their website. For those who wish to gather more information, Jay Hartenbach says anyone can reach out to them if they want more details. Hemp Supporter To help the hemp industry, Jay Hartenbach recommends reaching out to Hemp Supporter. It’s part of a lobbying group that works very closely with U.S. congressmen to get some of the hemp industries’ agendas push forward. “A large part of what they do is educating various individuals on the power of hemp and bringing that to life. They make it very simple to find the correct representative. The next step is getting organic certification and clarity with the FDA,” said Jay Hartenbach. Success Stories There are many success stories that Jay Hartenbach has encountered, people who benefited from his CDB oil and tincture products. He says it’s not a cure-all, but it does improve quality of life. Out of all the success stories, Jay Hartenbach singles out a good friend who was suffering from severe Parkinson’s. That friend used Medterra’s products particularly the CBD oil and tincture. And the video of that friend sent back to Jay Hartenbach was astounding. “That changed the course of this company. Understanding the right dosage was important,” said Jay Hartenbach. Moving Forward CBD oil also aids sleeps and addresses health issue of athletes. Moving forward, Medterra is currently doing clinical research for a medical university in the United States. “We’re looking into turning into a purely end consumer product company. We know CBD has this incredible potential,” Jay Hartenbach said. “And we are looking into what other herbal supplements or herbs to benefit or augment the effects of CBD.” He adds, “We’re starting to develop products where we take the effectiveness of CDB and try to find complimentary ingredients. Plus, we are trying to bring an overall understanding of the market. To achieve this, we are talking to national retailers and getting out products into the general public spotlight.” Website Jay Hartenbach has several products on his website that are worth looking into. They also sell a CBD isolate on our site. The company is also set to launch a monthly wellness supplement for women. He says it is also possible to incorporate CBD in something like a smoothie. And it’s best to explore that with a health professional.  The same goes for pregnant women who wish to take CBD oil. As a bonus, Jay Hartenbach is giving Learn True Health listeners a 15% off on his products so don’t forget to type in the discount code LTH at checkout. “If we look at our CBD tincture, we feel that we are leaders in the industry. We try to make it as affordable as possible. And we are dedicated to consistency and compliance. We have taken those same principles, applied and extended it into our retail line,” assures Jay Hartenbach.  Bio In 2016, Jay Hartenbach was contacted by his longtime friend, J.P. Larsen, who had spent the last five years distributing CBD in the US and abroad. Although the demand for CBD was growing by the day, the two recognized the lack of quality online retailers with reasonably priced CBD products.  Utilizing J.P.’s direct access to US-based industrial hemp farms and Jay Hartenbach’s marketing experience, Medterra was started. With their focus on providing consumers with the highest-quality CBD, Medterra has quickly grown to help tens of thousands of customers in all 50 states and six different countries.  Get Connected With Jay Hartenbach: Official Website Facebook Instagram Twitter Recommended links: GenCanna Hemp Supporter ************************************ Learn How To Achieve Optimal Health From Naturopathic Doctors!

299 Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms for Optimal Health, Longevity, Boosted Immune System, Healing The Gut, Cancer Fighting, Brain Function, How To Test Your Supplements For Purity and Buy or Grow Mushr

  The Mushroom Cultivator: A Practical Guide to Growing Mushrooms at Home https://amzn.to/2QKpeRG www.nammex.com www.realmushrooms.com Redefining Medicinal Mushrooms: A new scientific screening program for active compounds in medicinal mushrooms. White Paper published in 2015   Mushrooms http://learntruehealth.com/mushrooms Mushrooms are generally known to be a delicious addition to our dishes. But did you know there’s more to mushrooms than that? Mushroom expert Jeff Chilton is our guest on this episode. He will explain how mushrooms can be used as medicine, help the body to prevent cancer, make as extracts, drink, capsules, as well as boost our immune system. Growing Up Jeff Chilton grew up in Seattle where it rains so much. He remembers during the fall season, the place where he lived had lots of mushrooms everywhere. So, he used to go on mushroom hunts when he was younger. When Jeff Chilton got into university, his field of study was not about mushrooms. Despite that, he researched the use of mushrooms in indigenous cultures worldwide as well as the use of mushrooms in shamanism. Eventually, he took courses in his college about the study of mushrooms which is ethnomycology. Working At A Farm After college, Jeff Chilton decided to work on a mushroom farm and learn how to grow mushrooms. He went to Olympia, Washington, applied for a job and eventually got a job working at a big mushroom farm.  During the next decade, he became the production manager, responsible for the cultivation of over 2 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms per year. On this farm he worked on, they had a program using specific chemicals at certain times during the crop to avoid molds attacking the mushrooms, especially with Agaricus mushrooms. Mushrooms in North America are grown indoors in huge warehouses, so it’s a monoculture. Understanding Mushrooms Jeff Chilton says mushrooms are a reproductive structure of an organism that we usually don’t see. They don’t have seeds. The mushroom will produce a spore; the spore will go out and land on the ground and germinate into a very fine thread-like filament. “Those filaments from different spores will fuse and form a network. The network is called mycelium which creates a lot of the soil out there used to grow our crops and plants. They are recyclers and important for our ecosystem,” explains Jeff Chilton. When he was working on that large farm, they put in four new crops every week. Every crop was producing 20,000 pounds of mushrooms. They had mushrooms in every stage of development. Choosing from among the various kinds of mushroom, Jeff Chilton highly recommends highly-certified organic Agaricus mushrooms in particular. There are so many other species that are good, but he says shiitake mushrooms is the one that everybody should be eating because it has so many great benefits.  Deeper Research Jeff Chilton just started to delve into the literature deeper about growing mushrooms and all the different species that could be grown. He was also learning about the medicinal benefits of mushrooms. Certain mushrooms were used in traditional Chinese medicine. From 1979 to 1983, Jeff Chilton worked with three other men. They put together mushroom conferences in the Northwest. Furthermore, the group organized two well-attended conferences in Washington State and two in Oregon. The conferences had experts from all over the country talking about how to identify mushrooms, how to cook mushrooms and Jeff Chilton spoke on how to cultivate mushrooms. A New Chapter Jeff Chilton also co-authored a book on mushroom cultivation in 1983 called The Mushroom Cultivator: A Practical Guide of Growing Mushrooms At Home. That was the year that he finally left the mushroom farm in Olympia and started his own business. Then in 1989, Jeff Chilton made his very first trip to China for an international mushroom conference. That was also the year he established his new business, Nammex. Nammex is a business that introduced medicinal mushroom extracts in powder form to the US nutritional supplement industry. At that time, no other company thought of using a medicinal mushroom in their product line. Jeff Chilton also reveals that his company tests every batch of each product they make. Medicinal Mushrooms Jeff Chilton traveled extensively in China during the 1990’s, attending conferences and visiting research facilities and mushroom farms. He eventually saw that in Asia, farmers were growing at least 12 different mushrooms for food and more for medicinal purposes. “Medicinal mushrooms, in general, are one of the best things you can use regarding prevention. That’s why they call it the tonic herb. A tonic herb is something you can take regularly. It works on your body as a whole. It’s an herb that helps you maintain certain homeostasis. It brings harmony to our body,” said Jeff Chilton.  Mushrooms do not have a lot of calories.  According to Jeff Chilton, mushrooms are 10 to 40% protein. Button mushrooms are close to 40% protein. On the other hand, Shiitake mushrooms are 20% protein. Jeff Chilton says it has a good complement of the essential amino acids. It is also high in high-quality carbohydrates which is mostly what a mushroom is made up. Busting Myths There is an impression that an extract means that you are isolating something out of the natural product and leaving everything else behind. Jeff Chilton says that is just not true. The way Jeff Chilton’s company makes it is that they make sure the extract has the same profile as the material itself. “If you talk to people who make their extracts, they are essentially taking everything out of that plant or mushroom. And their extract will have a profile that is just the same as the actual material,” said Jeff Chilton. “Nothing is being lost if the extract is made properly. In traditional Chinese medicine, hot water extraction is how they process their herbs.” He adds, “Mushrooms are also high in fiber. They are digested more in our intestine than our stomach. In effect, mushrooms are feeding our microbiome.” Alpha-Glucan Vs. Beta Glucan Jeff Chilton says alpha glucan is starch. And a beta glucan is very different from an alpha-glucan. He says mushrooms have no starch, but they produce glycogen just like humans. Their storage carbohydrate is glycogen. Not like plants where the storage carbohydrates are starch. “Most mushrooms are 25 to 60% beta glucan. And they have no starch. But the glycogen content is somewhere around one or two percent,” shares Jeff Chilton.  Not A Quick Fix Mushrooms in general, are there to work pretty much in the background. Jeff Chilton says it’s not an instant fix at all for something. So, if you’re taking mushrooms regularly and if you’re eating mushrooms, then they’re going to go to work for you. “The top-selling mushroom supplement product in North America is myceliated grain. There’s a really interesting compound in mushrooms called ergosterol,” Jeff Chilton explains. “Ergosterol is in all fungi, and it is a pro-vitamin D2. The myceliated grain products have one-tenth the amount of ergosterol they should have. That’s because there is very little fungal matter. So basically, you’re just getting a starch supplement.” Jeff Chilton furthermore explains that mushrooms are 90% water like most vegetables. When you dry out the mushroom, the supplements are dry. They’re not fresh. “As a mushroom grower, I know the economics. Back in the 90s, I realized I couldn’t grow mushrooms in North America and sell them as supplements because it is too expensive,” said Jeff Chilton. The Best Mushrooms Jeff Chilton says China produces 85% of the world’s mushrooms. And Asia consumes so much reishi mushrooms. Reishi mushrooms from China are shipped to Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. Plus, they’re consuming a lot of it in China itself. “Mushrooms are organisms that consume agricultural waste products. Most medicinal mushrooms are wood decomposers. If you want your mushrooms to produce those compounds that are so important, they need the precursors that are in that wood,” said Jeff Chilton. Mushroom Supplements Some people may not like the bitter flavor, so Jeff Chilton says it’s better to take it in capsule form. He says in other products like reishi coffee; you will always be getting only a small amount of the actual mushroom. Because it will have other things in there that will dilute that. “To me, the reishi coffee thing is like a gimmick. I put a reishi extract in my coffee instead,” said Jeff Chilton. “Reishi also has a compound called triterpenoids. Triterpenoids are good for your liver, and it helps the liver purify your blood. Research has also shown that it can kill certain types of tumor cells.”  He adds, “Nobody out there in the industry can do true clinical trials. There’s so much information we have about any herbal product is mostly anecdotal. It’s difficult to get clinical trial information because it’s so expensive.” Jeff Chilton says there was this one study which comprised monitoring nine people. The study cost four million dollars!  Website Resources Aside from Jeff Chilton’s official website Nammex, he encourages people to join societies where they could teach you all about mushrooms. Jeff Chilton’s site includes links of mushroom articles as well as his podcast guestings. On his other website Real Mushrooms, you’ll get access to his blog and online shop as well as delicious recipes about mushrooms. “People need to look at mushrooms as this wonderful world of fungi that can be part of your life and diet, medicinal regimen. Look at it positively. Mushrooms are a fabulous kingdom of organisms that we should get more acquainted with,” said Jeff Chilton.  Bio Jeff Chilton, raised in Pacific Northwest, studied ethnomycology at the University of Washington in the late sixties. In 1973 he started work on a commercial mushroom farm in Olympia, Washington. During the next ten years, he became the production manager, responsible for the cultivation of over 2 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms per year. He was also involved in the research and development of shiitake, oyster and enoki mushrooms which resulted in the earliest US fresh Shiitake sales in 1978.  In the late seventies, Jeff Chilton was a founder of Mycomedia, which held four mushroom conferences in the Pacific Northwest. These educational conferences brought together educators and experts in mushroom identification, ethnomycology, and mushroom cultivation. During this period Jeff co-authored the highly acclaimed book, The Mushroom Cultivator, which was published in 1983.  In the 1980’s, Jeff Chilton operated a mushroom spawn business, and in 1989 he started Nammex, a business that introduced medicinal mushrooms to the US nutritional supplement industry. He traveled extensively in China during the 1990’s, attending conferences and visiting research facilities and mushroom farms. In 1997 he organized the first organic mushroom production seminar in China.  A founding member of the World Society for Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products in 1994 and a Member of the International Society for Mushroom Science, Jeff Chilton’s company, was the first to offer a complete line of Certified Organic mushroom extracts to the US nutritional supplement industry. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement companies and are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds. Get Connected With Jeff Chilton!

297 Your Mitochondria Are The Key to Health, Fertility, Energy and Longevity, Using Herbs, Nutrition, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine to reverse or prevent Infertility, Cancer, Diabetes, Fatigue, Dr. Wa

www.themitobook.com - book information and free download www.acuatlanta.net - online store with large selection of Chinese herbs and nutritional supplements www.acuatlanta.com Acupuncture Atlanta Clinic website to schedule a session with one of their Practitioners   Mitochondria http://learntruehealth.com/mitochondria Did you know that mitochondria hold the key to optimal health? A lot of people do not know what mitochondria are and how it affects our health. So to further explain what mitochondria are, I’m thrilled to have Dr. Warren Cargal in this episode. How It Began Back in high school, Dr. Warren Cargal was a track star. During a regional meet, he fell and ruptured one of his discs in his lower back. It led to the six months when he was in pain. But because Dr. Warren Cargal’s mother was a nurse, she diligently scheduled his doctor appointments. They went to one surgeon in particular who recommended surgery and told Dr. Warren Cargal he might lose control of his large intestine. Questioning Everything Dr. Warren Cargal’s mother wanted another option without surgery for him. Hence, she set a chiropractic appointment. During the first chiropractic session, Dr. Warren Cargal was able to stand up. After another eight sessions, he was pain-free.  “It questions our health and takes care of it. We are responsible for our health. Which means we have a responsibility to question things actively,” said Dr. Warren Cargal.   Acupuncture And Energy Dr. Warren Cargal narrates that there was an old Chinese guy down the street from him.  Doing acupuncture made Dr. Warren Cargal headaches go away for about six months. That’s why he got curious about acupuncture and decided to go into training. “The energy has always been referred to as chi. And it’s the movement of chi and blood which gives us vitality. A lot of acupuncture treatments are done to either move chi or correct if there is a deficiency in chi,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. What’s excellent about acupuncture is that the practitioner and patient really talk and spend time together. Through that, there’s some understanding that emerges about a treatment protocol. Defining Mitochondria Mitochondria are organelles. Organelles mean small bodies reside in each of your cells. They produce the energy for the cells. That energy is called ATP or adenosine triphosphate. The ATP is used by all the mechanisms in the cells to drive the functioning.  “The fundamental step where the energy is produced is by the mitochondria. And energy drives all the cellular processors,” Dr. Warren Cargal explains. “Every thought that you have and every image you see through your eyes, all those nerve impulses are all powered and driven by the ATP.” According to Dr. Warren Cargal, the other limiting issue for these organisms is the fact that they can only grow so big because they didn’t have internal structures. One time, something remarkable happened. And that something was one organism absorbed another organism for food. That allowed specialization to occur and that allowed us to be where we are today. Because we are highly specialized individuals. Dr. Warren Cargal further reveals that our whole gut system is composed of microbiomes which are bacteria. Unique Feature Mitochondria have their DNA. Dr. Warren Cargal says repeated rounds of antibiotics have profound effects on what’s happening in our gut. It can change or destroy the make-up of the gut which has significant effects like anxiety, depression, sleepiness, and immune response. “A whole microbiome also exists within our soil. And the roundup that is usually sprayed on our crops kills off some of the microbiomes in the soil,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. “When that changed microbiome is taken up by the vegetables, it affects some of the enzymes that you can produce. When we inject it, that affect us.” Dr. Warren Cargal’s Book Dr. Warren Cargal’s book is called Your Mitochondria Key to Health & Longevity. Through the book, he thoroughly explains everything you need to know about mitochondria; it’s components and how it is essential to our health and energy. He also says a skin cell might have a hundred mitochondria in it. And the heart muscle cell might have 5,000 to 8,000 mitochondria in it all producing energy 24 hours a day. A female egg has around a hundred thousand mitochondria in it. That single cell turns into a multi-million cell organism. And it needs tremendous amounts of energy to accomplish that. That energy is achieved through the mitochondria. “Most of the vitality for the offspring is inherited from the mother. All of the mitochondria are transmitted from the woman to the offspring. It’s only through the female that this energy is transmitted. Nothing is inherited from the male,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. Revving Up The Energy There are some doable steps to help us have healthy mitochondria. According to Dr. Warren Cargal, the mitochondria need oxygen. One way to have ample energy is finding ways to exercise regularly and be aware of your breathing. Dr. Warren Cargal also recommends restricting calories and also eat healthy especially healthy fats. As for meat consumption, if you can’t reduce it, at least opt for grass-fed meat. Also, increase vegetable consumption and be cautious if you plan to do intermittent fasting. “Most people’s concept of energy and production is about eating food and food going down the digestive tract, broken down in nutrients. Thinking it gives their body all the nutrients it needs. But you miss about four steps in there,” said Dr. Warren Cargal.  Cancer Dr. Warren Cargal believes that cancer is complicated. There are many factors involved because cancer requires energy. And that energy is fueled from ATP. If there is excessive consumption of carbohydrates and sugars, that’s how cancer will start obtaining that energy. “People can shift that balance through a more natural way. Consumption using the fats can slow that process down,” suggests Dr. Warren Cargal. “The nerve impulse is being driven by ATP. And there’s a high concentration of mitochondria in the brain.”  He adds, “Be aware of all the energy the brain is using and where that energy is coming from. There’s a lymphatic system in the brain, and that lymphatic system is used for clearing the debris. But it is only activated when you are sleeping. So, sleeping is an issue.” Dr. Warren Cargal also recommends considering probiotics if you had a lot of antibiotics. Because according to him, probiotics will nourish the serotonin. Website For those who want to know more about mitochondria, check out Dr. Warren Cargal’s fantastic website. You’ll find a link to his book as well as an online store that sells Chinese herbs and supplements. “People are having some issues already. They need supplements while they go through this transition period of fixing their diet,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. “The vision that we have is that people become vibrant. The aging looks different then.”  He adds, “There’s a lot of places where there’s limited dialogue. I encourage people to take note of that and have a little bit more compassion.”  Bio  Licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and clinic director at Acupuncture Atlanta, Dr. Warren Cargal is a practiced Chinese medicine for over 20 years in the fields of infertility and chronic disease conditions. He maintains an active clinical practice in Atlanta, Georgia.  Dr. Warren Cargal’s interest is in the integration of classical Chinese medicine with modern scientific study and evidence-based protocols. He’s spent hundreds of post-graduate hours in Chinese herbology, nutrition, and endocrine education. Through work at his clinic, he recognized three fundamental factors that drive aging and the age-related diseases of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, and cancer (shallow breathing, excessive consumption of calories and carbohydrates, and lack of exercise.)  Dr. Warren Cargal is the author of, Your Mitochondria: Key to Health and Longevity, which is based on the latest research on herbal isolates and nutraceuticals, presents approaches for correcting these three factors to reverse age-related diseases.

296 Ancestral Diets and the History of Food, Nutrient Dense Foods, Fusing Ancient Technologies with Modern Culinary Techniques, Foraging, Nose-to-Tail Butchering and Cooking, Fermentation, Food Evolut

1. Dr. Schindler just returned from a year-long sabbatical leave to work on a food project called: Food Evolutions - here is a link to a website with information: www.foodevolutions.org 2. Eastern Shore Food Lab at Washington College: http://www.washcoll.edu/departments/eastern-shore-food-lab/about-dr-schindler 2. Dr. Schindler's website: http://www.ancestralinsight.com/about   Ancestral Diets http://learntruehealth.com/ancestral-diets Ancestral diets contain a lot of nutrient dense foods. But the modern diet has overtaken the real essence of how food should be prepared and eaten. There is a lot to learn about how ancestral diets can benefit us. So, to expound more on the components of ancestral diets, we’re learning all of that from Dr. Bill Schindler, my guest on this episode. Connecting With Nature Dr. Bill Schindler grew up in the coast of New Jersey. He narrates that his parents worked hard to connect him with nature and outdoors like hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking and camping at a very early age. Dr. Bill Schindler didn’t take any pleasure in killing, but there was something about being a part of the entire process that drew him in at a very early age. Dr. Bill Schindler also spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking with his mother. He also battled with weight issues until high school. However, taking up wrestling was an exercise that helped Dr. Bill Schindler maintain his weight. Despite that, Dr. Bill Schindler still didn’t feel healthy and felt there was still something wrong with his diet. “I was stuck in that rut trying to figure out what I should be eating by looking at the nutritional components of food. And I would chart out my weekly diet to the gram of every single nutritional component of food that I had access to understanding,” recalls Dr. Bill Schindler.  College Years Dr. Bill Schindler continued wrestling in college. But then he also developed an eye disease called keratoconus. He went blind and ended up failing at school. It was not long before Dr. Bill Schindler had a cornea transplant. Eventually, he got back into college at the College of New Jersey and wrestled again. After college, he went further by pursuing a Masters’ and Ph.D. degree. “My journey towards health for a long time was always focused on that which I got from books and magazines, doctors and nutritionists. Nothing felt right. One thing that felt right to me was when I was a part of the entire process,” Dr. Bill Schindler said. Looking For A Deeper Connection Dr. Bill Schindler soon realized he wasn’t satisfied with purchasing a gun and ammunition for hunting. He felt there was something about it that’s too cold and distant. He wanted a deeper connection, so he focused on learning how people in the past hunted. Dr. Bill Schindler then learned how to make his bows and arrows. That led him to archaeology, particularly experimental archaeology. He also went on to teach classes at a university. “During that time, there was a major transformation in my life that made me who I am now. And that’s having children,” shares Dr. Bill Schindler. “Almost every pre-historic technology that I spent my life learning about has something to do with food. I realized that that was the key to making an impact on my family.” Ancestral Diets When we talk about ancestral diets, there are components to consider like prehistoric technologies, behaviors regarding food, food acquisition, and processing. Dr. Bill Schindler says ancestral diets was almost always focused on increasing the nutrient density or bioavailability of the nutrients in our food. Between five and seven million years ago, Dr. Bill Schindler said our earliest ancestors first stood up and became bi-pedal. The size of our gut impacts how well we digest our food and how well we absorb that food that’s been broken down. “On the other hand, the food processing today are focused on other things like storage, shipping, and shelf life and usually at the expense of nutrients. I realized how important it is to understand this and how it completely impacts our approach to food or diet and health,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. Food Evolution Dr. Bill Schindler says that during the early times, we were able to obtain food using only our biological characteristics or traits. As a result, our bodies and our brains remained the size that they did. “This is because our ability to take in large amounts of nutrients is very restricted because of our physical limitations,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. “It all began to change three and a half million years ago when one of our ancestors picked up two rocks and struck them against each other.” He adds, “That moment completely transformed the course of us becoming human. We could butcher for the first time. The earliest stone tool we ever found dates back 3.4 million years ago found in Kenya. And the earliest example of butchering dates to 3.3 million years ago in Ethiopia.” Furthermore, Dr. Bill Schindler said it opened up a world of possibilities. This includes hunting for the first time, cooking with fire, fermentation, cooking in containers and vessels, and drying. Over time, we continued to improve our diet, create new technologies and behavior patterns that can extract more nutrient-dense foods from the environment. So, we began to hunt more efficiently and detoxify certain plants that were inaccessible to us before. Maximizing Food Dr. Bill Schindler explains that to make the most use of the food we eat, we have to process that food before we eat it to allow our body to access it. He says our genes is a combination of our gene make-up and the environment that it interacts with. “If it’s about nutrient density, meat is more nutrient dense than vegetables and fruits. The biggest transformation of our ancestors occurs about two million years ago. I believe the biggest change here is we begin to hunt, and we begin to cook our food,” Dr. Bill Schindler said. Truth About Meat The reason that hunting is so important is that it is not about meat. Dr. Bill Schindler says, on the contrary, it is about animals. And the reason we could scavenge it three and a half million years ago is that the carnivores and the predators that killed that animal you’re scavenging from, left the meat behind after they ate all the good stuff. “When we began to hunt, we have first access to the most nutrient dense parts. And when that happens, we began to cook food,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. “Our brains and body exponentially grow. He adds, “Women also become more similar in size than men do which is an indicator of a quality diet as well. Our body was built on a diet that access animals. So, we need to focus on what was our diet like that produced our species and what technologies did they use to extract the most amount of nutrients in our environment.” Raw Dairy Dr. Bill Schindler says we can mechanically break down food with knives, mortars, and blenders. We can also ferment, take that food and derive nutrition from it. But Dr. Bill Schindler also shares that when he started having children, he wanted to learn more about dairy, especially dealing with raw dairy. He says all mammal babies are called mammals because their mothers have mammary glands. All baby mammals produce two different enzymes in their stomach that allow them to do some amazing things with milk. One is lactase, and the other is the enzyme chymosin which curdles milk. “The other thing that happens when raw dairy stays in the stomach for a little while is that it ferments. It is also important to allow it to break down better, releases nutrients and delivers all sorts of amazing probiotic nutrition into their bodies,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. He adds, “By fermenting milk, we’re automatically getting rid of a lot of the lactose that we’re having trouble with, and the enzyme lactase is already there. So that’s why people that are lactose-intolerant can often tolerate long-aged cheeses or things like yogurt.” Dr. Bill Schindler says that another thing we can do is harness chymosin and use it to curdle milk before we even eat it. And that’s cheese. But he also is firm in declaring that we have no business drinking ultra-pasteurized skim milk. Because skim milk delivers almost no nutrition.  Cooking Corn We have to realize the limitations of our bodies and understand what has been done in the past to access those nutrients and re-adopt those practices. Dr. Bill Schindler says if we adopt the crop and not the practice behind how to transform that raw material into a finished product, we’re missing out on a significant component of that diet. It can cause a lot of problems and corn is a great example. Dr. Bill Schindler shares what Native Americans figured out for a long time. They discovered that if they took the corn and boiled it in a solution of wood, ash, and water, it would break down that corn into something our bodies could digest. This became the basis for tamales or real tortillas.  But if you take the corn and boil, grind, bake, or eat it raw, you’re not getting all the nutrients that corn has. Dr. Bill Schindler says much of it will pass through our bodies even if we grind it into cornmeal. “If we’re eating food to derive nutrition from it, we have to realize the limitations of our bodies and understand what has been done in the past to access those nutrients and re-adopt those practices,” advises Dr. Bill Schindler. He also says corn is easy to grow. Hence, it is natural if people make it a significant part of their diet. In some ways, it may be good, but if we adopt the crop and not the practices behind how to transform that raw material into a finished product, we’re missing out on a significant component of that diet. Eventually, it can cause a lot of problems. “Grains are designed to stay dormant until they are in the perfect condition to support new life and to sprout and to grow. We can keep grains for years in a dry condition. And by grinding it and baking it, it does absolutely nothing,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. Reconnecting With Food Dr. Bill Schindler says the most important thing we can do is reconnect with our food and where it comes from. Cook everything entirely from scratch at least once. This way, we would find out how food is made. He also says thinking about food based on nutritional components is a terrible way to look at food. And that only started a little over a hundred years ago. To reconnect with food, Dr. Bill Schindler advises to do these steps: Focus on those food processing techniques that increase the nutrient density and the viability of nutrients in our food. Take steps to reconnect with our food, our diet and where it comes from. Understand and appreciate the context for all of our food. “Most of the traditional food that we all enjoy like real cured meat, real cheeses, real bread, all sorts of dairy ferments are deep-rooted in the past,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. “And when we make them the right way and apply the right techniques, they taste amazing they smell amazing, they look amazing, and they are satiating.”  Bio Dr. Bill Schindler is an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Archaeology at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland.  As both an experimental archaeologist and primitive technologist, his research and teaching, both in and outside of the college, revolve around a comprehensive understanding of prehistoric technologies including lithic (stone tool) technologies, prehistoric ceramic technologies, projectile technologies, hunting, foraging, hide working, fiber technologies and all aspects of prehistoric food acquisition, processing, storage, and consumption.   He believes that the better understanding of prehistoric life made possible through the archaeological record and a practical understanding of the technologies that created it can contextualize our place in the world and help provide answers to many of the issues facing us today.  Dr. Bill Schindler is a strong advocate of traditional foodways and is constantly seeking new ways to incorporate lessons learned from his research into the diets of modern humans.  His outlook on food has revolutionized the way in which he and his family eat, and he attributes much of the health his wife and three children enjoy to the hunted, gathered, and fermented foods that comprise a significant portion of their diets.  Dr. Bill Schindler has been trained by some of the world’s leading archaeologists, experimental archaeologists, and primitive technologists.  His research and teaching combine both academic and hands-on approaches resulting in unique teaching and learning opportunities, and he is equally at home in the middle of the forest armed with a hand-made bow stalking a deer or in a college classroom delivering a lecture to a group of students.   He truly lives what he teaches and teaches what he lives.  Dr. Bill Schindler’s teaching style is based on the belief that students are active learners and are best served by doing and solving real-world problems whenever possible; his approach is what he calls sole authorship, project-based, hands-on learning where students are engaged in a project for its entirety – immersed from the very beginning to very end.    In 2014, Dr. Bill Schindler was awarded the Washington College Alumni Associated Distinguished Professor of the Year Award, was nominated for the Carnegie-CASE-Phi Beta Kappa Professor of the Year Award, and in 2015 he delivered the keynote address focused on his approach to teaching at the world’s largest Experimental Archaeology Conference in Dublin, Ireland.  Dr. Bill Schindler also has a book coming out with Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, slated to be available in January 2019.

295 Cancer is Not a Death Sentence! Discover the Most Effective Ways to Prevent and Beat Cancer From 131 of the World’s Top Experts with Today's Guests Charlene and Ty Bollinger, The Truth About Cance

Discover The Truth About Cancer http://learntruehealth.com/cancer Truth About Cancer http://learntruehealth.com/the-truth-about-cancer The Truth About Cancer video documentary has been instrumental in educating a lot of people about cancer. The documentary is filled with so many interviews with experts. It is the brainchild of Ty and Charlene Bollinger who are my guests today and will talk more about the Truth About Cancer in this episode. Starting October 8, the Truth About Cancer will be streaming each episode daily wherein you can watch for free within 24 hours. To watch the Truth About Cancer episodes, link to www.learntruehealth.com/cancer. Family Tragedy Ty and Charlene Bollinger are also the ones behind the Truth About Vaccines video documentary. And like many other movers and shakers in the health space, their advocacy to spread the truth about cancer started from a series of family tragedies. First of all, Charlene Bollinger says everything great has a strong core and a foundation at the beginning. Her strong foundation started when she was a little girl who dreamed of marrying her knight in shining armor. Ty Bollinger turned out to be her dream guy. They married six months after their first date. It was also around this time that Ty Bollinger’s father was diagnosed with cancer. He was in extreme pain and had to undergo surgery. But two and a half hours into the surgery, the doctors came out and told the newlyweds that his cancer was so advanced. Twenty-five days later, Ty Bollinger’s father died. But Charlene Bollinger says it was actually because of a botched surgery which led Ty Bollinger’s father to bleed to death. The doctors did not sew him up properly. “Six months after that tragedy, we experienced the loss of his father’s father. And six months later his father’s brother, then his cousin Glenn. Then a few years later his mother’s mother, his mother’s father and finally his mother,” said Charlene Bollinger. Charlene Bollinger adds that along the way from 1996 to 2004 when Ty Bollinger lost his mother, they did a lot of research. They realized there were many better ways than the one that they knew. Looking back, Charlene Bollinger says that if only they knew those things in the beginning, their family members would most likely still be alive today. “We knew we had to get info out. In 2006, we published a book called Cancer: Step Outside the Box.  There are options,” said Charlene Bollinger. “Cancer does not have to be a death sentence. In 2014, we started our documentary. Now we reach millions of people, and we meet people regularly now.”  Doing The Research Ty Bollinger says that some of the most shocking statistics that they discovered were the inefficacy of chemo and radiation. They not only didn’t work very well but they were the only option. And they were only thing doctors were taught about. “I was angry I lost my parents because they didn’t know there were other options outside of chemo and radiation surgery. People die because of lack of knowledge,” said Ty Bollinger. Ty Bollinger laments that doctors who prescribed something out of the ordinary, are sometimes mocked by their peers. Sometimes they lose their medical license and even get kicked out of a country. Those doctors are forced to practice somewhere else because they use something that wasn’t core approved by the FDA. “Cancer is not a death sentence. It’s very preventable. There are lots of building blocks to being healthy. If you participate in those building blocks, then you have a very good chance of not getting cancer and never dying from cancer,” said Ty Bollinger.  He adds, “The best treatments are also the best preventions. I think if I knew all these things that I know and have learned from the doctors over the years, and didn’t practice on them, I’d be a hypocrite.”  Recommended Diet When it comes to diet, Charlene Bollinger says clean food means non-GMO, organic, and real foods. She says most of the foods that Americans are eating aren’t even real foods. They are so processed and synthetic. That’s why the body starts attacking itself because it doesn’t know what to do with the stuff because it’s not food. Charlene Bollinger advises people that the first thing they should do is educate themselves. They need to understand the options. And they need to understand the body. Furthermore, she says they need to understand what’s good for the body and the immune system. They also need to understand that the full body approach is mind spirit and body. “We have toxicity that we need to detox. Every doctor in Asia said something that we did not know before. Every case of cancer there was directly related to something in mind,” Ty Bollinger said. “There was a connection to bitterness and eating into their body physically. Forgiveness goes a long way to break free from these bitter roots.”  Ty Bollinger says different diets work for different people. The ketogenic diet has worked for some people but not for others. Same with raw food or vegan. As a result, the Bollingers try to become agnostic when it comes to diets. “Eat as close to nature as you can and eat organic. For meats, make sure meats are raised humanely,” advises Ty Bollinger. “Cancer cells are fermenting sugar for energy. So by going through a ketogenic diet, you’re taking away the fuel for cancer.”  Metronomic Chemotherapy Metronomic chemotherapy is a repeated administration of anti-neoplastic drugs in frequent and comparatively low doses. It also doesn’t have a long drug-free period. On the other hand, Ty Bollinger says insulin potentiation therapy low dose targeted chemo is similar to metronomic chemotherapy. It’s used in about anywhere from a 5th to the 10th of a normal dose of chemo. And its coupling that with insulin to be able to target the cancer cells. “It’s been effective in many parts of the world. And very effective in killing cancer cells. It does not typically have any side effects because the dose of chemo is so low and its very targeted,” said Ty Bollinger. “But they are using this with other treatments as well like dietary changes, exercise, and detoxification.” Root Causes of Cancer Ty Bollinger says that if we look at cancer that’s a disease, it is not only a result of nutritional deficiency but also overburden of toxicity. Hence, we need to look at the toxins that we’re exposed to today. Factors include toxins in the water, in the air, food, and invisible toxins like electromagnetic fields or EMFs. And because EMFs have proven to be harmful, Charlene Bollinger suggests getting a device to block the EMFs. Otherwise, it’s best to turn off gadgets when not in use. “The American Cancer Society reports that 80% of cancers are due to environmental toxicity and lifestyle choices. That’s why our immune system is compromised because of toxicity,” said Ty Bollinger. Healthy Habits Aside from exercising three to four times a week, I’m thrilled to find out that Ty Bollinger is also a big fan of Sunlighten Saunas. He makes it a habit of sitting in the sauna to sweat daily. He also jumps on a rebounder to stimulate the lymphatic flow. Because according to him, that’s an excellent way to carry nutrients to the cells, as well as detox the cells.  Stop Buying Harmful Products One reason why companies like Monsanto, Bayer, and pharma companies are still in business is because of consumers. Ty Bollinger says that they continue producing harmful products because people are still buying it. “Don’t buy their stuff. If people stop buying, they will stop producing it,” Ty Bollinger said. “Educate people. Make decisions based on truth and facts. Stop buying the poison and put them out of business.” Positive Mindset On the other hand, Charlene Bollinger says that laughter is one of the best medicines to curb cancer. Laughter along with exercise significantly improves health. The same goes for thoughts filled with love, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control. “Think about everything you touch, taste, everything that you think about needs to be as clean as you can get it to be—organic or GMO-free,” said Charlene Bollinger. “If there’s a little bitterness there, do whatever it takes to forgive. Work through that to a better place to where there is freedom in our mind and soul so there could be healthy in the body.”  Bio Ty M. Bollinger is a Christian, happily married husband and father, health freedom advocate, cancer researcher, former competitive bodybuilder, documentary film producer, radio show host, and author.  Ty M. Bollinger first brought his discoveries to the public in the best-selling book Cancer: Step Outside the Box. He has also co-authored other books on alternatives to conventional medicine. The two groundbreaking documentary series on cancer treatment he has produced–The Quest for the Cures (2014) and The Truth about Cancer: A Global Quest (2015)–have been viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide. He is married to Charlene Bollinger.  Get Connected With Ty Bollinger: The Truth About Cancer The Truth About Cancer – Facebook   ************************************ Learn How To Achieve Optimal Health From Naturopathic Doctors!

294 The Amazing Benefits of Transdermal Magnesium to Help Hormone Health, Chronic Pain, Autoimmune, Seizures, Blood Pressure, Detoxification, Restless Legs, Anxiety, Cortisol, Sleep and Fatigue, Livin

www.livingthegoodlifenaturally.com Use coupon code LTH for 10% off! Magnesium Foot Soak http://learntruehealth.com/magnesium-foot-soak I have been raving about my guest’s magnesium foot soak for some time now. Magnesium has proven to be such an important component of health. But a magnesium foot soak is much more effective in getting it into our body. To further explain the benefits of a magnesium foot soak, I’m thrilled to have Kristen Bowen on the show. Health Issues Kristen Bowen said she had health issues even as a little girl. But rather than digging into the cause, her parents kept putting band-aids on it. During her teenage years, Kristen Bowen grew out of her health issues. But reaching her early 20s the autoimmune issues started to kick in. The big crash happened in 2003. Kristen Bowen says that time, she had a baby and was having some bladder issues as well as leaking. Upon the advice of her sisters, Kristen Bowen went to an OB-gyne to get her bladder tied up. Seizures During Kristen Bowen’s gallbladder surgery, her heart kept stopping. After surgery, she started having seizures, and her body just started crashing. In the course of three and a half years, she ended up in a wheelchair. However, Kristen Bowen’s husband never gave up. Being 36 years old at that time, a good day for her was opening her eyes on the couch. It also affected her six children. Two kids were newly adopted at the time, and her health issues were added stress on any child. As much they wanted to be smooth and strong for the kids, no doctors could do anything. Ray Of Hope One day, Kristen Bowen and her husband happened to listen to a radio show and heard a physician’s assistant talking about out of the box solutions. They felt a ray of hope that someone will finally listen to them. They finally went to see that doctor who indeed listened to them. Although he was clueless about Kristen Bowen’s condition, he wanted to do some research. After a month, they met up again. The doctor found something that he was interested in and asked Kristen Bowen if she was willing to try it out. “And what he found was, people with autoimmune who went into surgery had a reaction to the metal in the titanium. Even though the thinking at the time was that titanium was inert. He suggested to redo the bladder tie up and take the titanium out. That was a huge decision to make,” recalls Kristen Bowen. During surgery, the doctor found that Kristen Bowen’s cadaver graft did not have a tracking number. Hence, the assumption was that her cadaver graft was bought on the black market and it had molds on it.  “The molds shut my body down. Even moments after that surgery, I knew something was better. Because I could think and process. At that point we knew we made the right decision,” said Kristen Bowen. “But it left me with all sort of issues. The quality of my life was low, so I searched out of the box solutions.”  Building A Strong Foundation It was about twelve to fourteen weeks when Kristen Bowen’s seizures completely stopped and went away. She now teaches clients not to chase symptoms and build a strong foundation instead. “Chasing symptoms is expensive, and it leaves you with a cupboardful of supplements that you quit using because it doesn’t work,” said Kristen Bowen. “Magnesium is that foundation and doing a magnesium foot soak gets you that cell saturation. You can’t get it orally with oral magnesium.”  Magnesium Foot Soak The first time Kristen Bowen heard of a magnesium foot soak was when a lady suggested it to her. When it successfully helped her recover her health, Kristen Bowen vowed to share the magnesium foot soak with other people. “My company is about helping people and making a difference. It is showing information and education so that people can make the best decisions for the journey of where they are at,” said Kristen Bowen. Describing what a magnesium foot soak feels like, Kristen Bowen says it was like a sponge soaking up needed nutrition. She saw results for a year and a half when suddenly it quit working. “They changed where they got it from and the FDA the way it’s written; you don’t have to tell people if you put water and magnesium because it already has water in it. And they diluted it,” Kristen Bowen reveals.  She adds, “So, we had it tested. I don’t go for what a company says, and I test in an independent lab. It is imported from the cleanest source and contains undiluted pure magnesium from the Zechstein Sea in the Netherlands because magnesium from Russia is high in heavy metals.”  Thermal Imaging Testing Other companies dilute their magnesium soaks. And through a thermal imaging testing, Kristen Bowen proved that her 64-ounce bottle of Living the Good Life Naturally Magnesium contains 403 grams of magnesium chloride. An adult requires a quarter cup which is 24.42 grams of magnesium or 24.424 milligrams. When you do a magnesium foot soak for 20 minutes, the thermal imaging testing showed that the body absorbs 80% of that. After 45 minutes, the body absorbs 98% of the magnesium. Then some remain on skin as residue. 30-Day Challenge Kristen Bowen says our grandparents did not have to worry about magnesium because they were getting it from their food. On the other hand, we have to be current and understand what we need to focus on to build optimal health. Nowadays, we can’t get magnesium from our food, because of lifestyle, EMF, food, sugar, and stress. The 30-day challenge requires doing a magnesium foot soak every day for 30 days. And Kristen Bowen attests to the fact that a lot of people’s health improved significantly. Shame Cortisol There was also a number who initially failed to benefit from the magnesium foot soak. Kristen Bowen said she looked into the cases of those thirteen women and discovered something valuable. “What I learned rocked my world personally. I discovered that when there is rage cortisol, shame is quiet. It is internal and cannot be seen externally. That shame cortisol is so detrimental to healing. All these women have been tapped in to shame for years,” explains Kristen Bowen.  She adds, “And because they have lived with high cortisol levels, their bodies were not absorbing that magnesium. Because when cortisol levels go up, magnesium gets pushed out through the urine.” Because of that incident, Kristen Bowen wanted to help people understand how detrimental shame is. We must learn to understand the process of shame, what it feels like when you’re standing in shame and understand the connection that you’re walking away from your health at that point. So, in the case of those thirteen women, it has more to do with internal healing and creating a stronger mind-body connection. It took those women three months to utilize tools to work on the process of shame. Tools included journaling and energy work like emotional freedom techniques.  Magnesium Red Blood Cell Test The magnesium red blood cell test has two kinds of tests you can take to test your magnesium. One is a magnesium blood serum test. Magnesium is so important to your body to keep your blood at 1% saturation. And if that blood serum test shows you have a problem, you’re in massive crisis. Furthermore, Kristen Bowen says the magnesium red blood cell test tests the magnesium around each red blood cell. It gives a more intimate, accurate picture of how you are utilizing that magnesium that you are soaking in. And the optimal numbers are 6.3 to 7. For anyone who would want to avail of any lab testing, Kristen Bowen recommends Walk-In Lab.  The magnesium red blood cell test, in particular, is around $47 to 49 dollars, and there’s usually a coupon code online to avail of a discount. Gut Health According to Kristen Bowen, magnesium is also connected to the gut health and peristaltic action. They don’t work at that chronic constipation as a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is also essential for the adrenals, and Kristen Bowen considers the adrenals the holding point for your health. “On the other hand, DHEA levels tell the hormones were to show up and where to go. Magnesium self-balances that. And not that magnesium is going to cure every hormone, but it’s going to build a good foundation for your hormones to start functioning and interacting better with each other,” said Kristen Bowen. Thyroid Health Kristen Bowen says magnesium is so vital to thyroid health and that conversion of t4 to t3. If you’re not converting from t4 to t3, your energy is going down. And then after the energy starts to sink, you start to put a spare tire around your waist of weight. That’s a t4 – t3 conversion issue and your body need magnesium to make that happen. “Some people’s bodies are excited to pick up that magnesium and they drop the potassium. Hence, they feel horrible,” said Kristen Bowen.  She adds, “Have half a teaspoon of baking soda, a half cup of water and drink that. That alkalinity will help bring balance back into the body. You can also drink some coconut water that’s rich in potassium.” Long-Term Benefits Kristen Bowen believes that oral magnesium will give you some short-term benefit. It also decreases peristaltic action. Furthermore, it slows that down in your digestive system, and it decreases your body’s ability to uptake nutrients from food. And she’s not willing to hand those long-term benefits for the short-term solutions. “The soak will get you the cell saturation. And the muscle cream is a great way to load up on magnesium in between your soaking and using it for spot treatments. As you feel a little bit better, you can add the B vitamins then boron or taurine,” Kristen Bowen said.   Giveaway As a bonus, Kristen Bowen is giving away two bottles of magnesium foot soak and magnesium cream. So, do join the Learn True Health Facebook group for more details. For those who want to purchase on her online store, there’s a generous discount as well. Just input coupon code LTH upon checkout. Sitting in a wheelchair, having daily seizures, losing her hair and being fed through tubes was finally enough to wake Kristen Bowen up to make some changes in her life. She wakes up every morning grinning because her clients are crushing it at a pace that blows her mind.  It helps her remember that everything that happened to her now serves as her greatest gift to help people tap into their health with ease and grace. This is more than a job to Kristen Bowen. It is her mission to touch as many people as she can to cut the overwhelm we all experience when it comes to creating the very best day we have ever lived.

293 Powerful Holistic Habits, How To Test Your pH and Balance Your Alkalinity, Removing Toxins and Heavy Metals, Healing Gut Protocol, Platinum Energy Systems, Kellyann Andrews, Ashley James, Learn Tr

www.PlatinumEnergycentre.ca (for clients and practitioners) (our resource library) (we will give you access to this site and the ebooks) Use coupon code LTH for 15% off! Balancing pH http://learntruehealth.com/balancing-ph Balancing pH is an essential factor for optimal health. And there are so many other natural ways on how we can achieve good health through Holistic habits.  To teach us all about balancing pH, Kellyann Andrews is back for part 2 of our topic about creating wellness on a cellular level. Importance of Vibration Kellyann Andrews explains that when we are in a debilitative state or deep degenerative state, our vibratory level is at a very low frequency. As the health of our body goes up, there’s a lighter feeling within the body. We then can see the vibrancy come back. “The biggest thing we need to do is raise the vibration. And as we raise the vibration in our bodies and bring them together, we create a higher resonance. That’s what we need to do,” said Kellyann Andrews. “When the body is at a higher resonance, you are mobilized at a higher level of healing capabilities.” She also reveals that the thing that creates low resonance in the body is heavy metals. It is the heavy metals that are causing chaos frequencies in the body. How To Achieve High Resonance One way to keep the body at a high level of resonance is monitoring whether we are effectively balancing pH. Kellyann Andrews says if you test your saliva first thing in the morning, that will tell you what is happening in your biochemistry. You test your saliva to see what your digestive tract is doing. On the other hand, if you test your urine, that tells you what is happening at the cellular level. Through those options, you can see whether your lifestyle is affecting your biochemistry the right way or if it is affecting it at all. “When you test your PH first thing in the morning, you are likely to be more acidic because you had nothing to eat or drink all day. Monitoring your PH can show you what you are gaining or losing from your lifestyle choices,” Kellyann Andrews said. She adds, “Because many of us are on the path of wellness, we’re eating more alkalizing foods, as well as eating higher and more vibrational foods. We also avoid pathogen and chemical laden foods. A lot of the foods that we eat, even foods such as oatmeal are acidifiers.” Balancing pH Tests There are a lot of tests in the market to see if we are balancing pH. According to Kellyann Andrews, when it comes to balancing pH, aim for a number level of 7 or slightly above. Kellyann Andrews cautions against getting an 8 or 9. Otherwise, we’ll be too alkaline, and we can get other situations from that. “People who have cancer will be down at 5. The pH in the urine indicates the cellular pH. Whereas the saliva indicates the digestive tract,” said Kellyann Andrews. Acidity Kellyann Andrews stresses that our body cannot heal, repair or lose weight when it is acidic. When people are chronically ill, they will be acidic. And it’s not going to shift overnight. Therefore, it’s best to monitor yourself three to four days in a row so you can see a pattern. “If you did all the right things, then you’re going to be slightly alkaline PH. You’ll feel good. But it’s going to fluctuate like a roller coaster,” said Kellyann Andrews. “You’re never always going to be alkaline because life doesn’t work that way. Our stress levels are so undermining our body’s health. So that’s why you have to be your own best friend.”  Slippery Elm Kellyann Andrews highly recommends taking Slippery Elm which is a powder. When you put it in water, it creates this gelatinous substance. And when you take that internally, you slick your whole tract.   Turmeric is also a great thing to incorporate in your diet. Kellyann Andrews explains that when you drink something which turmeric, your whole tract absorbs the turmeric. It is one of the most awesome bitters you can take into the body. Plus, it helps shut down the harmful elements in the body that cause the inflammation and turns off the mechanisms. “When you put Slippery Elm in, it creates a barrier to stop the leaky gut. I get a cylinder tea mug and put warm water. Then put in first Mineral Matrix Goat Whey. Followed by Sunflower lecithin and turmeric. But you don’t want the soy lecithin because that’s GMO focused,” said Kellyann Andrews. She adds, “I drink half of it, so you get the minerals immediately then mix it up, let it sit for five minutes. When it turns into a gel-like mass, add more water and drink. That’s the part that will go through the tracts slowly. It will get rid of the bacteria, fungus, and bacteria.” Chlorella Chlorella is also what Kellyann Andrews highly recommends. She says it mineralizes and alkalizes the body. It is also a detoxifier and a binder. In effect, it pulls the bad content out like the heavy metals. Ideally, Kellyann Andrews says anyone who is doing chemo or has radiation should be using chlorella. Other Holistic Habits Kellyann Andrews strongly advises never to drink tap water. Facts show that babies have about 90% water but adults or the elderly have as little as 50%. In other words, most people are completely dehydrated. Affirming what numerous experts have advised, Kellyann Andrews also says to get some regular daily exercise. She says if you’re doing a yoga movement in a flowing kind of fashion, it can be very soothing to the body. As a result, you’re moving back into parasympathetic mode.  “Doing something like Shi Ba Fa is a whole set of moves that will tune up all parts of your body and create your core strength to come out and also your balance. It works on so many levels,” said Kellyann Andrews. “If you want to create some balance in your life, you have to create some pauses like meditating or praying. It’s about connecting to a different frequency.” She adds, “The biggest thing we can do is be sunny in the world. You have to create that at a cellular level, expand it out to a gland level, then to an organ level and a system level. You then become this glowing sun presence. Ultimately, be aware of what vibration you are sharing with others.”  Platinum Energy Systems For those who want more information about what Platinum Energy Systems is, check out their official website.

She is always digging deeper into the core of “well-being” – on all levels.   Kellyann Andrews is a health coach by nature and trade. She does not have any specific certifications. She was at university and nursing school until a sudden family death which left her grief-stricken and devastated. Due to this experience, Kellyann Andrews stepped away from traditional medicine. Kellyann Andrews continued to educate herself by researching all areas of health recovery. This is now her life’s work – sharing discoveries and her recovery with others on the same path. When both parents died prematurely, and Kellyann Andrews suffered poor health, she was inspired to find ways of creating wellness at the cellular level. She is the President of Platinum Energy Systems, her husband and her own business – specializing in detoxification for health recovery and prevention. They have clients (home-users), medical clinics, and practitioners all over North America.

292 How To Create Consistent Wellness At the Cellular Level, Heavy Metal Detoxification, Detox Chemicals, Pesticides, Mercury, Lead, Copper, Autoimmune, Cancer, Autism, ADHD, Dementia, Sleep, Platinum

www.PlatinumEnergycentre.ca (for clients and practitioners) (our resource library) (we will give you access to this site and the ebooks) Use coupon code LTH for 15% off! Creating Wellness http://learntruehealth.com/creating-wellness People need to realize the importance of creating wellness at the cellular level.  We have so many resources for diets and technologies that promote wellness naturally. But the problem is, which of those are truly effective? My guest Kellyann Andrews says of creating wellness at the cellular level does not happen overnight. Check out this episode to learn precisely what it takes to creating wellness at the cellular level. Sickly Child Kellyann Andrews was a sickly child. During her younger years, she dealt with extreme asthma and allergies. When she was in her 40s, she suffered from arthritis, gout, and rheumatism. Kellyann Andrews says both her parents had a genetic disposition. Plus, her living environment aggravated her stressful state. “That stress level ignited the wrong epigenetics to occur. And turned on all the bad genes because of the extreme stress levels,” said Kellyann Andrews. Searching For A Cure Because of her health journey, Kellyann Andrews wanted to discover what is the core cause of disease. She went down the path of wellness to investigate how to achieve creating wellness at a cellular level. “And I can tell you, the joy of the experience is that at age 61, I now take the stairs two at a time. I have the mobility and agility that didn’t have in my 20s. And at age 60, my gray hairs turned dark again,” reveals Kellyann Andrews. Dangers of Mercury Like many other experts, Kellyann Andrews cautions against the dangers of mercury. She also experienced mercury blackouts because of her dentist. At that time, she didn’t know mercury was harmful. “They had no methodology to get them out. So, I went down this amazing journey of biochemistry and investigated the core cause of disease and wellness,” said Kellyann Andrews. “It brought me down to the cellular level of the body. Anything that was making the cell healthy eventually led me to toxicology.”  Domino Effect Kellyann Andrews eventually understood that the poison inside the body was a huge trigger to so many biological and chemical responses. She also realized it was also getting stuck at the muscular level and arteries. Hence, affecting every cell. “So, what we needed was the methodology that would get heavy metals, chemicals, and all foreign content out of the body safely, easily and gently,” said Kellyann Andrews. “The human body was designed to rejuvenate. So, that whole thinking of our parents and grandparents degenerating as you grow older is not accurate.” She added, “We are experiencing an environment on the planet that human history has never experienced ever. And it’s an accumulation of all the toxicity that has been caused by industry. The world has gotten to such a degree of toxicity that the human body is just completely absorbing it.” Kellyann Andrews also stresses that in creating wellness at the cellular level, it’s not just about what you have accumulated in your entire life that hasn’t come out.  More importantly, it’s also what you are absorbing daily. Dangers Of Copper Most of us have already heard the dangers of mercury. But according to Kellyann Andrews, the one that isn’t as well-known is copper. This is because, in old houses, there was copper piping. Kellyann Andrews says we were taught copper pans were a good thing to cook in. And women who are on birth control used IUD which had copper. If we get mercury amalgam fillings, there’s also copper in there.  Kellyann Andrews says even very wholesome foods can have a lot of copper. It’s a domino effect. And Kellyann Andrews says these multiple sources are accumulating. She also adds that there is proof of a correlation between migraine headaches and copper. “A lot of Naturopaths and Holistic Doctors do shy away from chelation. Because it depletes the body of absolutely everything. Then they play a guessing game on what to put back in,” surmises Kellyann Andrews. Gauging Presence Of Heavy Metals Kellyann Andrews says during that very low, vibratory state and the world is just completely overwhelming, it’s so easy to be completely absorbed in your symptoms and how awful you feel. So, she highly recommends taking a photo of yourself when you were experiencing good health. Or a picture of someone who is vibrant. Place the photo on the fridge and say, “Body, today, this is what we are creating.” Kellyann Andrews advises making it a now experience, not tomorrow or sometime in the future. Ultimately, we have to own it at the moment. But before creating wellness at a cellular level, you have first to be aware of the signs. Kellyann Andrews says for heavy metals in particular when the whites of the eyes are grey, that is the classic symptom of heavy metals toxicity. “The body does not purge one organ at a time. Whatever comes out of your colon, bladder, feces, and urine is a collection of debris that has been collected from all parts of the body,” said Kellyann Andrews. How Our Body Copes When you are at a debilitative state, Kellyann Andrews says it’s like you’re watching the illness movie. So, what you want to do is switch the channel. Start watching the wellness movie and do the wellness or healing habits. When the body burden goes up, so does the volume of symptoms in the body. Kellyann Andrews explains that the more severe the symptoms, the more it is a window to understanding that you’ve got a massive load of toxicity. It’s the accumulation factor that is causing the tipping point and then goes into degenerative diseases. “And when the toxicity reaches a certain level in the body, what occurs is the autoimmune diseases. The amount of people that are experiencing this kind of effect nowadays is just so astronomical because of the exposure that we’re all experiencing,” said Kellyann Andrews. She adds, “Your body is your mirror. It sends alert signals to you on whether it’s happy or not. You have to listen to those alert signals. Your body sends amazing signals to you to let you know when you are in a toxic environment.”  Acidity Kellyann Andrews says the commonality of all sickness is acidity. Because when the body gets more acidic, the more severe the symptom is. We know cancer exists in a very acid environment, but Kellyann Andrews says that same environment is what causes things like arthritis, rheumatism, and gout. “So that hyperacidity within the body is what is undermining it. Through our Platinum Energy Systems detox, it is the fastest way to balance out the PH,” Kellyann Andrews explains. “Everybody needs to get their PH at a correct place. Your blood needs to be at 7.35 to 7.45 or else you’re in a coma. So, of course, your body will sacrifice all functionality to keep you conscious. Because it knows you have to stay in a conscious state to operate.” Detox Foot Spa Among the favorite ways of creating wellness at a cellular level is using a detox foot spa. Kellyann Andrews explains that when you put your feet into the warm salt water, you open up the sweat glands. So, it is a sweating process. Generally, people get sicker because their detox systems in their body like the liver, kidney, lungs, skin, gallbladder, of those organs and systems, get clogged up. “The lymphatic system helps the body detoxify itself. Our technology ties into this mechanism that is already designed by the body. But unfortunately, it clogs up massive molecules,” said Kellyann Andrews. She adds, “So in our system, the reason why it’s different is that we have multiple technologies. It’s not just metal components sitting in the base. And it’s got multiple interventive technologies designed behind it to assist body open up these drainage routes.” Controversies of Detox Foot Spas Kellyann Andrews reveals that there are so many controversies in the field about detox foot spas. Regarding technology, these knock-off foot spas have no control over the electricity. Kellyann Andrews says when people put more salt into the water, they are increasing the conductivity of that water. And the human body is not designed to have high levels of electricity. “Ours is the only component that sits in the water that has the array that has the control mechanism. If a practitioner puts in too much salt, it causes the water to be too conductive. And an excess of anything in the body is a toxin,” said Kellyann Andrews. Platinum Energy Systems Platinum Energy Systems is the only system in the world that has the capability of controlling the electricity. Kellyann Andrews says this is because it monitors, regulates and controls electricity right in the water. “The array itself is 100% automated. So, there are no dials. The technology is designed to do the rest, so you get multiple therapies. What this technology does is that it opens up the drainage routes which is the lymphatic system,” Kellyann Andrews said. Aside from that, one of the unique features of the system is that it is designed for people with high EMF sensitivity. Because in the Platinum Energy Systems, there’s a device to block out dirty electricity. “The mission of the company is broader than just selling a machine. Because of my background being a practitioner, the ambition behind the company is to teach wellness by focusing on cellular health,” explains Kellyann Andrews. “So, we consider ourselves to be an educational organization. We provide a lot of information for home users and practitioners.” For those who want more information about what Platinum Energy Systems is, check out their official website.

291 Holistic Science-Based Functional Medicine to Reverse Disease Naturally and Build Lasting Health, Dr. Emily Parke, Ashley James, Learn True Health

DETAILED SHOW NOTES COMING SOON https://www.dremilyparke.com/interview Functional Medicine  http://learntruehealth.com/functional-medicine So many people are gravitating now to functional medicine. This is because they know the implications of becoming too dependent on drugs. Functional medicine can even help heal the gut naturally to support the immune system.  To talk more about functional medicine, Dr. Emily Parke explains it in detail in this episode. Finding Her Passion When Dr. Emily Parke was little, she remembers wanting to try everything. Getting her first toy medical kit as a toddler ignited her curiosity about the medical world. During her teenage years was when she found a passion for medicine. At 16 years old, Dr. Emily Parke worked at CVS pharmacy part-time. That time, you didn’t need any extra training or certification to learn about medication and medical conditions.  So, Dr. Emily Parke was able to learn the ins and outs of the pharmacy business. Dr. Emily Parke also had a friend who was a volunteer for the local ambulance. She loved the experience and invited Dr. Emily Parke to try as well. So, at 17 years old, Dr. Emily Parke became a volunteer after undergoing actual training for the certified first responder. College Years During her college years, Dr. Emily Parke took up pre-med biology. Despite her college class schedule, she still found a way to continue her volunteer work with the local ambulance. Dr. Emily Parke loved all her science courses in college. She eventually switched schools and got an associate degree in respiratory therapy. Then she stayed on and got her Bachelors’ degree from the same college in cardiorespiratory science. But it wasn’t until Dr. Emily Parke got into respiratory therapy school when one of her instructors would put them on rounds as respiratory therapy students with the medical students at the university. Eventually, Dr. Emily Parke ended up choosing anesthesiology because there was a lot of hands-on stuff. The Cleveland Clinic Dr. Emily Parke did her anesthesiology residency at the Cleveland Clinic. For her, it was her first diverse experience. Working at the Cleveland Clinic was an achievement for Dr. Emily Parke. The Cleveland Clinic was the top three tertiary training facility and always in the top three hospital systems in the country. The Cleveland Clinic was also the number one cardiac center in the world. It was indeed a great place to train. Burned Out Dr. Emily Parke ended up doing a fellowship in pediatric and pediatric cardiac anesthesiology in Philadelphia. After her training, she decided to move to Phoenix, Arizona in 2009. The first year was great. For Dr. Emily Parke, it was a huge learning curve. But after a few years, Dr. Emily Parke started to burn out. She started not sleeping and had stomach issues.  Discovering Acupuncture Going to a doctor for consultation wasn’t successful. This was because Dr. Emily Parke didn’t want, but instead, she wanted to know why she was feeling the way she did. Dr. Emily Parke happened to have a friend going to acupuncture sessions and convinced Dr. Emily Parke to try. It turned out that acupuncture and Chinese herbs helped Dr. Emily Parke sleep well and address her stomach symptoms. Helping Patients After her personal experience with acupuncture, Dr. Emily Parke though about how to learn it also to help her patients. This was because as part of her anesthesiology job, Dr. Emily Parke was also vice chair of the pain department at Phoenix Children’s hospital for a couple of years. She was seeing kids with terrible pain issues just like adults. And that drove her to get training in medical acupuncture. “I took the complete training course for acupuncture for physicians and myself. Another doctor got the acupuncture program up and going at Phoenix Children’s hospital in-patient, and we were only doing out-patient acupuncture for adults,” said Dr. Emily Parke. Functional Medicine One of Dr. Emily Parke’s classmates mentioned the term functional medicine. Dr. Emily Parke ended up getting curious about it and started learning about functional medicine. Shortly after, Dr. Emily Parke found the Institute for Functional Medicine. What Dr. Emily Parke loved about the Institute for Functional Medicine was the fact that they had a complete certification process and was clear on what the curriculum was. “I started training in 2013. In 2014, The Cleveland Clinic paired with the Institute of Functional Medicine. And it kept growing,” said Dr. Emily Parke. “The acupuncture we’re doing for in-patients is pretty much pro bono because it’s complimentary. This because for alternative medicine, insurance does not reimburse for it as an in-patient since it is considered non-essential care.”  Arizona Wellness Medicine Dr. Emily Parke went all around the country taking their modules. There are seven modules to get certified in functional medicine. The first one is called applying for functional medicine in clinical practice. It teaches the vision and other practitioners how to think about patient care differently and apply the principles of functional medicine. “The other six modules are advanced practice modules and gets specific. Going to all of those training is great. There is a pre-course work and post-course work,” Dr. Emily Parke said. “Then in 2015, I opened my practice for functional medicine and acupuncture called the Arizona Wellness Medicine in Paradise Valley, Arizona.” Getting patients was a lot of hard worth but it was worth it.  From opening only on certain hours, the Arizona Wellness Medicine gradually increased their operating hours to full days. Nowadays, their schedule is always fully-booked, and it takes months to book an appointment with Dr. Emily Parke. The Arizona Wellness Medicine also has other practitioners to meet the demand for this type of medicine. To extend her healing network, Dr. Emily Parke built a relationship with people through writing blogs, diving into social media marketing and increasing video content in her social media channels. Food Issues According to Dr. Emily Parke, there are three main health issues with food. These are the food allergy, food sensitivity, and food intolerances. “Food allergies are IgE. If you eat food and you have a strong IgE to it, you’re going to get symptoms pretty much right away. IGE’s don’t tend to change a lot over time,” explains Dr. Emily Parke.  She adds, “Food sensitivity is not IGE. There’s a place called the Cyrex Company which does IGG and IGA food sensitivity testing. There’s not one test that looks at every part of the immune system’s response. It’s your body that tells us the true answer.” Food Elimination Plan Dr. Emily Parke walks patients through a 30-day food elimination plan. The plan has a specific reintroduction process that helps them figure out what their food sensitivities are. Because at the end of the day, no matter what the blood test shows, if you eat something and you don’t feel right, it’s best to stop eating it. “It takes your body’s immune system approximately 23 days to calm down by half. So 30 days gives you half that halfway point to where on the backend, you can tell if it creates a symptom for you or not,” said Dr. Emily Parke. Recommended Diet Dr. Emily Parke says that half your plate should be non-starchy veggies of some kind. Your diet should also include some fruit and some healthy fat like avocados, nuts, seeds, olive oil, and coconut oil.  For proteins, good sources include grass-fed beef, wild caught salmon and organic free range chicken. “The paleo diet is just really getting you back to eating real food. It takes away processed food items. And it also lowers sugar as well as takes away a lot of the common food triggers,” said Dr. Emily Parke. On her website, Dr. Emily Parke has two free downloads available and ten yummy recipes which are anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense and paleo style. You can also get some information on her jumpstart plan which is a 30-day paleo reset. There’s not one food plan that’s perfect for everybody, so it’s best to consult with a good health practitioner. Autoimmune Diseases The treatment for people with the autoimmune disease also takes a different approach. And functional medicine is slowly getting popular as a treatment for people with autoimmune disease. “Autoimmune is on the rise. But I think in doing functional medicine, it attracts more autoimmune disease patients. I love autoimmune disease patients because there is a good degree of reversibility in treating them,” said Dr. Emily Parke.  Success Stories There have been many success stories of people healing because of functional medicine. Dr. Emily Parke loves to see people early on and as young as possible. “Because of many times with autoimmune disease, you’ll see the markers for autoimmunity in the bloodwork before someone has significant symptoms and organ damage,” said Dr. Emily Parke. “That’s a golden opportunity right there to reverse the autoimmune disease process.” Other Remedies Dr. Emily Parke can assist patients with a paleo autoimmune protocol to address their health issues. She also recommends Sarah Ballantyne’s book, the Paleo Principles to educate us on how to get good sleep and stress management. Doing a protocol generally reduces toxins. Eating organic foods and taking magnesium also helps one to sleep better and lowers blood pressure. Acne, on the other hand, indicates a significant skin and gut connection as well as toxins. One way to remedy skin issues is doing an anti-inflammatory, nutrient-dense food plan to determine food sensitivity issues with the skin and also grow good healthy gut bacteria. “The top thing you can do to create health for yourself is to think about how you can lower your stresses and make your life simpler. Anything we can do to reduce stress and simplify our life is going to go a long way,” said Dr. Emily Parke.  Bio Dr. Emily Parke, DO, is board certified in anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology, trained in medical acupuncture, and specializes in Functional Medicine.  Dr. Emily Parke earned her bachelor’s degree in Cardiorespiratory Science at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York, near her hometown, and attended medical school at Rowan University in New Jersey. Upon graduation from medical school, Dr. Emily Parke completed her anesthesia residency at the world famous, top-ranked Cleveland Clinic, where she served as Chief Resident.  Her desire to tackle complex medical challenges led Dr. Emily Parke to pursue a pediatric anesthesia fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, consistently one of the top three children’s hospitals in the country, where she served as Chief Fellow. After completion of her anesthesia training in 2009, Dr. Emily Parke took a job practicing pediatric anesthesia in Phoenix, Arizona, doing complex pediatric anesthesia cases, as well as serving as vice chair of the Pediatric Pain Medicine Department at Phoenix Children’s Hospital from 2010-2012.  In 2012, Dr. Emily Parke completed training in Medical Acupuncture, which then led her to the cutting-edge field of Functional Medicine. She then began training with the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) shortly after.  She is an IFM Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and has completed the Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine ADAPT clinician training program as well.  IFM, in collaboration with The Cleveland Clinic, opened the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine in October 2014. Also, Dr. Emily Parke has presented and lectured nationally on a variety of topics, which began early in her residency career and continues presently. Get Connected With Dr. Emily Parke!

KINTSUGI WELLNESS BOOK GIVEAWAY - Join the LTH Community on Facebook to enter the contest! Kintsugi Wellness http://learntruehealth.com/kintsugi-wellness Kintsugi Wellness a highly-recommended book if you want to embrace the Japanese way of total wellness. It is a unique art of nourishing the mind, body, and spirit.  To explain what Kintsugi Wellness is all about, I’m thrilled to have its best-selling author Candice Kumai on this episode. Early Love For Food Candice Kumai is a classically-trained professional chef. She was a judge on Iron Chef America, a guest on the Dr. Oz Show, Wendy Williams, Today Show, as well as on Top Chef’s first season. She traces her love for food from her Japanese grandmother and her Polish grandmother. Candice Kumai’s mother also used her Japanese tradition in the United States with California produce. According to Candice Kumai, her mother cooked the best meals so eating Japanese dishes on a regular basis was normal for her. Going to Culinary School When Candice Kumai got older, she enrolled herself in culinary school after college. She eventually gained ample work experiences at several restaurants. Candice Kumai recalled the struggles she went through from her Top Chef stint in Los Angeles to move to New York. Now a writer in New York for eight years, Candice Kumai says it has been a painful roller coaster ride writing six books, magazine editing, producing, writing, and directing. “But mostly, I think I found my niche and my path when I started helping other people learn how to cook better. And also live a better life with really simple solutions that everyone can do,” said Candice Kumai. Clean Green Drinks Book Candice Kumai’s Clean Green Drinks help people perfect their basic smoothie from a sugar bomb into something that is full of nutrition and tastes like a milkshake. She said she was always trying to find more realistic ways and approaches for the American consumer.  It has now even expanded to have a global reach. Ultimately, it’s all about knowing the real resources you can do at home. Candice Kumai encourages people to eat more vegetables and fruits.  She says to make sure to include something fresh in your smoothie whether breakfast, lunch or dinner.  She also advises to drink water, and drink matcha tea instead of coffee. Like what most experts say, sleep is essential.  That’s why Candice Kumai strongly recommends going to bed early to prioritize your body, mind and emotional well-being. Furthermore, regular exercise helps a lot.  Kintsugi Wellness Candice Kumai’s latest book Kintsugi Wellness is based on her Japanese ancestors’ practices. She says she used their methods from the ancient which help her thrive now in the modern world. “All the things I grew up with came back full circle. And after a very rough time in New York city, my Japanese grandmother passed away,” said Candice Kumai.  She adds, “It took me three years to write this book. The book is a homage to my family’s heritage. I now take wellness seriously in a different format where I want everyone to learn the same Japanese practices I learned.” Lesson Learned The Kintsugi Wellness book stresses the following things: Always do your best. Continuously improve. Everything is perfectly imperfect with great resilience and endurance or just being a better service to others. “So, although my life is not perfect, I always felt like I didn’t fit in because of the Asian Heritage I grew up with,” said Candice Kumai. “Finding myself and finding my true voice meant being broken, picking up the pieces on my own, and putting them back together. Kintsugi Wellness book is a celebration of wellness and heritage.” Candice Kumai recalls that she didn’t think it would be her calling. But she was so attracted to learning from the monks, elderly people, learning from those who survived the war and escaped death. According to her, these were the people who taught Candice Kumai what real wellness was.  The Right Mindset Candice Kumai always knew she was a hard worker.  She was very persistent. But she also didn’t realize that continuous improvement through Kaizen—a Japanese term for improvement, was a Japanese practice until she turned 36 years old.  To illustrate the Japanese people’s values, Candice Kumai cites the 2011 earthquake. Despite the challenges, Japanese people didn’t complain, didn’t cry, scream or beg. They were very tolerant and resilient.  They endured great pain internally. “When I started understanding Japanese as a whole culture or a homogenous culture, we were never really supposed to stand out in Japan. They wanted everybody always to be the same as a group culture,” explains Candice Kumai. “With the Japanese Americans, I realized I could write a book about the Japanese practices I was raised with because I am Japanese American.” Wabi-Sabi Candice Kumai says the average Japanese person would not think this is any special or different. So, when she learned about Wabi-Sabi, it taught her how to embrace her imperfections. It influenced her so much, to the point that she named her podcast Wabi-sabi. “A lot of us have identity struggles. But learning that everything is perfectly imperfect, and accepting flaws are part of life and embracing them, is the practice of Wabi-sabi,” said Candice Kumai.  Purpose of Writing Book The Kintsugi Wellness book is currently available in nine countries all over the world. Through her book, Candice Kumai wanted to open up a new window to wellness where every person can embrace where they come from. It is also to help them see life from different perspectives. Because according to her, if we don’t tell the stories of our ancestors’ practices, we will surely lose them. Candice Kumai wrote Kintsugi Wellness in New York.  Among accomplishments like signing sixty different branding deals 2011 until now, she still wasn’t happy. She had a relationship that was broken, and her ex-partner traumatized her with an unexpected breakup. Candice Kumai also lost her grandmother, and that left her tired, depressed, and not full of life. “So, when I started studying more on my heritage, I came across the practice of Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the Japanese art form of building repair. That’s why it came to be wellness. Because it was a guide for anybody who was going through trauma, sadness, anger,” Candice Kumai said.  She adds, “There is a Japanese term in the book wherein it refers to pay attention and take great care. Sometimes we need to call to attention and be realistic in your goals. We may not all have the opportunity to be perfect, but we can change things to improve ourselves continuously every day a small bit at a time.” Helping People Candice Kumai says the Kintsugi Wellness book has helped so many people. Many people started sharing their pain, honorable struggles, and their past stories. In the end, they ended up coming out of it better. You have to be aware that you are not alone in your struggle. Recommended Diet Food plays a big factor in feeling good inside and out. Candice Kumai says one thing Americans don’t have in their traditional daily diet is fermented foods. On the other hand, the Japanese utilize things like natto, soy sauce, miso paste, fermented pickled veggies throughout the day. They generally have more fermented foods. One thing you can do is change things up with different flavors like miso, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar that contains some mother. It greatly helps gut health because it provides good bacteria. Also, try to cut down on sugar. “We can all help prevent disease together. And cooking is the greatest resource that we all have to live our lives. That is what I’m here for in a nutshell,” said Candice Kumai.  For breakfast, Candice Kumai usually eats a half avocado with miso paste.  Infusing your breakfast with lemon or apple cider vinegar is also ideal. She also loves doing a peach smoothie. Just mix frozen peaches, spinach, a touch of apple cider vinegar, almond milk, hemp seeds, berries, and collagen. Lunch is usually a big giant salad for Candice Kumai. The greens range from romaine or red leaf lettuce, arugula or spinach. Then she usually mixes it with red onion, garbanzo beans, kidney, cherry tomato, cucumber, olive oil, curry powder, sea salt, soy sauce, lemon or apple cider. For dinner, her favorite is eating salmon with miso paste, fresh greens, quinoa or brown rice.  She does indulge in a bit of chocolate or matcha cookies for dessert. Healthy drinks include matcha tea, hemp milk, almond milk or green tea.

289 How Full Spectrum Infrared Therapy Works to Improve Your Health, NASA, Stimulate Your Body's Ability To Heal Itself, Skin Healing, Pain, Mobility, Detoxification, Weight Loss, Blood Pressure, Stre

For more info on the full spectrum infrared system visit: Sunlighten.com "Alicia has been a health and wellness advocate for over 25 years. She is passionate about sharing the full-spectrum of a healthy lifestyle which helps empower people to live a healthier, happier life. Alicia believes wellness means more than dress size or body weight, true wellness encompasses every aspect of a person’s life from mental health, nutrition, livelihood, physical activity, and dark chocolate."   Infrared Therapy  http://learntruehealth.com/infrared-therapy/ Infrared therapy is something that I genuinely believe in especially after I bought a Sunlighten Sauna for home use. There have been many studies that came out attesting to the benefits of infrared therapy. But to talk about infrared therapy in detail, I have Sunlighten’s Business Development Executive Alicia Botyrius with us in this episode. Years As An Entrepreneur Alicia Botyrius was initially a customer at Sunlighten’s day spa in Kansas City.  Living in the city for 20 years, her work as an entrepreneur was stressful. But because she was interested in health and wellness, she frequented the day spa to decompress. Alicia Botyrius was a customer at the Sunlighten day spa for about five years. Reaping the benefits of infrared therapy was something Alicia Botyrius cherished. Going to the day spa was her sanctuary.  Naturally, her visits enabled Alicia Botyrius to know the products inside and out.  It was also fortunate that Sunlighten Saunas’ headquarters were in the suburbs of Kansas City, so I was a smooth transition to work for the company. Sunlighten Saunas Experience Alicia Botyrius felt that doing infrared therapy with other brands felt oppressively hot. The first time she did infrared therapy using a Sunlighten sauna unit, Alicia Botyrius felt extremely comfortable. “It’s meant to be something that’s enjoyed versus endured. And it has a nurturing feeling. If you’re coming from a stressed state, going to a sauna is the best feeling,” said Alicia Botyrius.  Stress Buster Alicia Botyrius didn’t realize how much anxiety and how much tension she had until she started coming to the sauna on a regular basis. She realized to step back and slow down her thoughts. Ultimately, Alicia Botyrius was better off in a calm state before making decisions versus a tired, anxious state. Alicia Botyrius explains that when you are stressed, your body runs off two systems. You have the sympathetic and the parasympathetic systems. “When you are in that sympathetic state, you are stressed and feels like somebody is chasing you. You are nervous and anxious,” said Alicia Botyrius, “And when you go into the sauna, there’s not much you can do. It forces you to step back and relax.”   She adds, “And as a result, your body switches over to the parasympathetic system which is what you’re in when you’re in a deep sleep. That’s the system where your body rests and recovers. By going to the sauna, you are naturally bringing your stress levels down. You are allowing the body to recover and repair itself. And it naturally brings up endorphins.”  Recovering From Injuries Infrared therapy is also a beautiful thing to use if you have any injuries, muscle or joint problems. Alicia Botyrius says utilizing a sauna will burn more calories and help improve your heart, lose weight, and detox toxins. “It’s getting help on a complete level and not just fixing the symptom. Plus, it’s finding the root issue and helping that as well,” Alicia Botyrius said. Types of Sauna Sunlighten Saunas offer three types of saunas.  The far infrared has a wavelength that is going to penetrate deepest into your body. According to Alicia Botyrius, this is primarily for detox and raising your temperature. The mid-infrared wavelength and near infrared are the two other types. Near-infrared targets improving skin health. Alicia Botyrius also explains that the near infrared we pulse out in Sunlighten Saunas involves no light and no heat. Instead, it is delivered through LED bulbs in the walls of the sauna. This means you’re not going to get hot, and you’re not going to sweat when using the near infrared. “The way that it was discovered is when NASA and the Navy Seals hired a scientist. It was to figure out the best way for astronauts to recover if they got cut in outer space because they are out of the atmosphere,” said Alicia Botyrius. “If you go out of the atmosphere and cut your arm, it can be fatal. Because we don’t have the atmosphere to help, your body heal.”  She adds, “The same thing in submarines. Burned cuts can be a dangerous situation. But 880 nanometers of energy will heal skin. So, it will help collagen production, help heal wounds, and the most effective way to help skin conditions recover.” Some other health conditions that the near infrared sauna can address are fine lines and wrinkles, wounds, sunburn, acne, psoriasis, and some types of rashes. “Near-infrared focuses on the skin but still goes under your skin. So, when the energy goes through there, it’s going to help a lot of areas like a whole-body treatment. It also helps reduce inflammation,” Alicia Botyrius said. Solo Sauna Sunlighten Saunas offer many unit models. Alicia Botyrius says the solo sauna is one of her favorite products because it is so effective. And so many people can use it. The solo sauna is also something that is portable and a space saver. “You just lay it on the floor. It comes with a mat if you want. There’s an infrared heating pad that you would lay on that’s a memory foam,” said Alicia Botyrius. “You’re getting those wonderful infrared heat from the whole backside of your body radiating up. So, all along your lower back and down your hamstrings are tight.”  On top of you are these domes of infrared that are so nurturing and gentle. It is exceptionally healthy and great for detox. And it is considered an ultra-low EMF of 0.6. Furthermore, the fabric the company uses is a carbonized bamboo, which is completely non-toxic. “I am creating a very strong foundation by making my body as healthy as can be. I feel like I’m coming from a really strong place to go get it,” said Alicia Botyrius.  She adds, “No matter what you do and what lifestyle you have, you can’t get rid of the toxins that are in our world today. And the deep sweat you experience in our patented infrared heaters allows you to get rid of all the garbage that you don’t need. And hold on to the things that are essential in your life.” EnergyBits I was so thrilled to find out that Alicia Botyrius became a fan of EnergyBits after she listened to my show where I guested creator Catharine Arnston. For those who want to buy their products, type in LTH at checkout to avail of the 20% off on all products. The discount code has no expiration date, so you can use it over and over again or share it with friends. Alicia Botyrius thinks it’s crucial to add EnergyBits into your health program because it is lead-free. Starting with taking Chlorella at night, Alicia Botyrius slept deeper and was more zestful. Waking up, she felt restored and sharper. Her feeling of being alert and awake felt so natural. Even when she exercised in the morning, she stayed alert all day. A few weeks later, she added Spirulina in the morning as an energy aid. Alicia Botyrius also found out that it helped curb her hunger.  Sunlighten Saunas Testimonies Some so many people have reaped the benefits of using Sunlighten Sauna regularly. It helps improve mobility and flexibility in people. Alicia Botyrius also says that as people get older and unsteady on their feet, this is something that can help them get stronger and become more stable. “All of our clinical studies are on the website. Sunlighten Sauna’s infrared heat had a statistically significant difference in people’s blood pressure,” said Alicia Botyrius. “The study was based on using the sauna 3x a week for 30 minutes for six weeks. That’s dramatic when you consider how many drugs people use to manage their high blood pressure.”  She adds, “By gently warming your core, it is helping your circulation improve. And as your circulation improves, you get so many benefits downstream because of that. It also improves heart health, helps reduce inflammation and lessens brain fog.”  Alicia Botyrius cites one story about a firefighter injured on the job. He was horribly on a high dose of pharmaceuticals. But thankfully, he incorporated holistic treatments, one of them being a regular user of Sunlighten Saunas. Today, the man also works for Sunlighten Saunas because he believes in it so much. Sustainable Wood Sunlighten Saunas are made of all-natural wood. They use a water-based finish on the outside. Alicia Botyrius says there might be some imperfections on the wood. That’s because the company prefers it to be as natural as possible without any chemicals. “Any time you have a resin, glue or paint, then you heat it up, and you are in an enclosed environment, you’re breathing in those elements and gases. And that is not healthy,” Alicia Botyrius said.  She adds, “We use sustainable wood. So, from an eco-perspective, we work with farms that believe in reforestation. We make sure it’s wellness for mother nature as well as wellness for people who use it.” Alicia Botyrius also says that the company also offers units using two other kinds of wood that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. Acoustic Resonance Therapy Sunlighten Saunas also have an audio system from So Sound. Alicia Botyrius explains that it’s a specific frequency that’s been clinically proven to help bring down stress levels and return people to a state of calmness. The So Sound music plays through the speaker system and provides a subtle vibration sound healing, like a musical massage.  It is best paired with the Chroma Therapy, where you can choose the color of the light to make you feel more relaxed. Financing Options Sunlighten Saunas offer great packages that are flexible and easy on your budget. They also help you find people to install your unit and have an excellent customer support team on standby to answer your inquiries. For home use units, the company offers a seven-year warranty for residents where your unit will be replaced for free if there are any defects. On the other hand, a five-year warranty is offered for commercial use units. Many hotels and top professional sports teams have Sunlighten Sauna units. Either way, Sunlighten Saunas are meant to last decades. They also offer free shipping and have excellent bamboo carbon towels, which are super absorbent, fragrance-free, organic, and available in their natural color. So, make sure to inquire about that.  “As technology improves and knowledge improves, we always want to stay ahead of everybody else. We make something that makes us stand apart from everybody else, and we’re very proud of that,” said Alicia Botyrius. “The sauna that you get today will not be the sauna that we have in 10 years or that we had ten years ago.”  Bio Alicia Botyrius, Business Development Executive at Sunlighten, has been building brands and businesses for 20 years.  Before Sunlighten, Alicia Botyrius started her career in a large telecommunications company and then spent 12 years as an entrepreneur in the fine art industry by running a business called Signature Canvas. She achieved many successes throughout her career, she landed the first and only co-branded television commercial in the telecommunications industry, grew and managed a worldwide start-up business and created various marketing campaigns and self-published a poetry book. Her success is attributed to the relationships she built with each person she worked with and her belief in servant leadership.  Alicia Botyrius has been a health and wellness advocate for over 25 years. She is passionate about sharing the full-spectrum of a healthy lifestyle which helps empower people to live a healthier, happier life. Alicia Botyrius believes wellness means more than dress size or body weight, true wellness encompasses every aspect of a person’s life from mental health, nutrition, livelihood, physical activity, and dark chocolate.  Alicia Botyrius holds a Bachelors’ Degree in Accounting from King’s College and an MBA from the University of Scranton.

288 How To Protect Yourself From The Fallout of Modern Technology, Radiation Nation, 5G, EMF, WiFi, Cell Phones, Radio Frequencies, RFID, Microwaves, Radiation, Cancer, Autism, Migraines, Blue Light B

https://www.defendershield.com DefenderShield http://learntruehealth.com/defendershield DefenderShield is a brand of technology which effectively protects us from the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields. I’m sure you’ve heard thousands of reviews proving the importance of avoiding EMF exposure.  To get a better understanding on EMFs and the benefits of DefenderShield, its creator Daniel DeBaun will explain all about it in this episode. In connection with the subject about electromagnetic fields, I’ve had Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt on the show some episodes back. His primary mission is to reverse autism in children, and one of his top recommendations is to have them stay away from wi-fi signals. You see, wi-fi signals vibrate at 60 hertz and vibrate the heavy metals in our nervous system. By doing this method of heavy metals detoxification, it helps patients slowly eradicate symptoms of autism. Protecting His Sons It was a very personal journey for Daniel DeBaun. Before creating DefenderShield, Daniel DeBaun led the standards development and testing environment for a telecommunications product for probably 25-30 years.  He made sure products were compliant to the standards they had in the system. When Daniel DeBaun decided to retire early, there was one time six years ago wherein his sons visited him at home. It bothered him that they were in front of their laptops for several hours.  He wife was similarly worried, so Daniel DeBaun researched potential dangers. “I was stunned that there was a lot of evidence. So, I figured out a way to protect them. Eventually, I made a prototype wherein his sons began using them as well as their friends,” shares Daniel DeBaun.  He adds, “My conclusion was that there was a problem.  We weren’t going to be victims from the technology in our environment, and I thought of trying to fix it. Plus my wife wanted grandchildren. That’s why she was concerned.”  What is Radio Frequency According to Daniel DeBaun, any device operating electronically has an emission of radiation that occurs below 300 Hertz. When that electronic device is consuming that power, there’s a by-product that occurs. And the by-product has exceptionally low-frequency admissions. It’s the stuff that comes out of your wall to electronics. “Anything that generates a current generates an emission. Then there’s the other type. It’s like when you want to connect to something, you have to create a connection from one device to the next,” Daniel DeBaun explains. “So, if you want to connect to a cell phone and call a friend, your cell phone connects to a cell power. That’s a radio frequency connection or an RF signal. That RF is another form of radiation.” Dangers of RF Signals Daniel DeBaun says that if you use your laptop and connect to your wi-fi to get internet access, that’s an RF signal that is allowing you to make that communication. It is a frequency. And the information rising within that frequency is how you communicate. “The RF is around one gigahertz. A wi-fi signal is around 4 or 5 gigahertz. It’s much faster and different,” said Daniel DeBaun. “It takes many years before we know the impact of the pollutants around us. And RF can be considered a pollutant. It is also dangerous because it can impact the cellular levels as well as the systems in your body.” Erratic Sleep Patterns Many studies have proven that electromagnetic fields mess up with our sleep patterns. Daniel DeBaun says that exposures from a cellphone put us at risk wherein the membrane of our cells can weaken. “Recreation of melatonin is interrupted by an RF signal. You can’t sleep well, and you have dry eyes. So, you need to think about the potentials for long-term exposures,” said Daniel DeBaun. To further illustrate, Daniel DeBaun cites that there is a potential that the egg of a 12-year old girl is carrying a potentially damaged DNA cell.  This is if she has been exposed to RF signals for a prolonged time. As the girl grows up, her egg is used to create her child. And some research has supported the concept that a baby could end up having a damaged DNA cell as well.  Natural Toxicity Program The Natural Toxicity Program is a division of the US Federal Government. Approximately $25 million was poured into the program two years ago to prove a statistically significant epidemiology study that there was no concern about cell damage from an RF signal. The program took transmitters from a cellphone and included it in the test environment. Radiating this epidemiology population, they found an increase in certain types of brain and heart cancers. The numbers were statistically and significantly higher than the general population that didn’t have that exposure. “There were thousands of studies in the last five years that look at the breakdown of cells. And there’s that concern that with all these studies, you can’t conclude it. That’s why there’s a bit of controversy in the space,” said Daniel DeBaun.  The 5G Network Daniel DeBaun explains that when we had an analog signal, 2 to 4G could break the cells down because it went to a digital format. And the way it is encoded impacts the cells differently. “We know the digital signal along with the frequency rate is what is impacting our cells. And it creates all the challenges we have today,” said Daniel DeBaun.  One gigahertz is a billion signals per second. And the 5G network allows us to connect with anything or anybody because of its high speed. Going from 1 gigahertz to roughly 20 gigahertz, Daniel DeBaun says it’s twenty times more speed per second than one gigahertz. “It’s one third the speed of an x-ray. The x-ray is powerful enough to take electrons, knock it out of orbit and charge it. That’s the mechanical breakdown of the cell that causes cancer,” reveals Daniel DeBaun. Daniel DeBaun also says that the much more significant speed of 5G is cause for concern. It’s so fast that you can’t go very far. You can’t go any more than 850 feet. “So, if you’re within a thousand feet of a cell phone tower, you are three times more likely to have cancer. None of us are smart enough to know what the answer is on 5G. Because none of us had studied it anywhere in the world,” said Daniel DeBaun.  He adds, “No scientific research occurred in that 23 gigahertz space. We can only predict based on what we know of previous technology.” Radiation Nation Book For those who want to know more about EMF radiation, check out Daniel DeBaun’s book called Radiation Nation–Your Complete guide to EMF safety and protection. It details all the truths and health challenges what we get from modern technology. “It was written out of frustration. When I looked at the research as a scientist, there was a lot of evidence that was pre-directionally not good for us,” Daniel DeBaun said. “We were confused about what the stuff was. And we were trying to bring up our families in a changing environment.”  Daniel DeBaun says he was frustrated because he didn’t see the simple understanding of what the issue is and the simple understanding of what you can do about it. Hence, this book tries to close those gaps. “The book was for my mother for her daughter. It was for the people that are making decisions in our lives,” said Daniel DeBaun. “I needed to try to help them understand what the problem was and the things they could do. Simple actions can have a substantial change. It was written for the average person to understand the environment they are living at.”   Actionable Steps And just what can we do to lower our exposure to EMF? Daniel DeBaun says that when you have a cell phone against your head, you want to think about that as the worst exposure you can have on a cellphone. “If you take that cell phone and take it away one foot from your head, 80% of the potential danger of that signal is gone. By 4 feet, 98% of the danger is gone,” Daniel DeBaun said. In other words, the power adds up so fast that the distance spells a big difference. It is relatively easy to do. By merely moving something or moving the device away from you by a little bit, there a significant benefit. Duration indeed plays an important part in minimizing harmful exposures and living longer. “If you have a cell phone with a cell tower connection, wi-fi signal and Bluetooth, those are three transmitters entering into the room. You don’t need all three,” said Daniel DeBaun. “I only have cell power. By turning it off, I reduce two-thirds the exposure in the room simply by turning it off and put the phone on speaker mode instead.” The same goes for TV unites connected to routers and TV boxes. Daniel DeBaun advises that we don’t have to have the wi-fi signal on. Instead, we reduce those transmitters in the room, and that minimizes the exposure. DefenderShield Products Daniel DeBaun sells a wide variety DefenderShield products on his website. He said among the DefenderShield selections, the EMF Radiation-Free Air Tube Stereo Headphones / Earbuds is most recommended. It has a long cord to allow you to use your device 4.5 feet away. To further sweeten the deal, Daniel DeBaun is offering a 20% discount on all DefenderShield products to Learn True Health listeners.  Just make sure to type in the coupon code LTH upon checkout.   Bio Daniel DeBaun is an internationally recognized and influential expert in shielding electronic emissions and Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF) protection, with a particular focus on the effect of exposure from mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and cell phones.

287 Smart Blood Sugar, Vitamin E, Genetics For Detox, Diabetes, Ancient Cultures, Traditional Healing Foods, Weight Loss, Insulin, Bredesen MEND Protocol, Functional Medicine, Dr. Marlene Merritt, Ash

https://www.merrittwellness.com Blood Sugar http://learntruehealth.com/blood-sugar/ Blood sugar levels significantly affect our body. That’s why we have numerous studies explaining why it is vital to maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. To educate us more about blood sugar and how to eat smart, Dr. Marlene Merritt explains all that and more in this episode. Early Exposure Dr. Marlene Merritt shares her mother is German. And because she was suspicious about going to doctors more often, it was normal that from a young age, Dr. Marlene Merritt was given things like chamomile tea to drink for certain discomforts like gastritis. Over time, Dr. Marlene Merritt learned more things such as steamed water with eucalyptus could treat asthma and bronchitis. That’s why she never had too many antibiotics when she was a kid. College Years In college, Dr. Marlene Merritt got into racing bikes in New York.  One day, she got sick, and her friend gave her antibiotics. An infection lodged in her heart and damaged one of her heart valves. Upon consultation with a doctor, Dr. Marlene Merritt was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse, a heart condition at the age of 20. She tried prescribed drugs, but it didn’t help much.  Eventually, she gave up racing when her health couldn’t keep up. Discovering Whole Food Nutrition After getting her graduate degree in Oriental Medicine, Dr. Marlene Merritt happened to see a chiropractor/ naturopath who diagnosed her to be Vitamin E deficient. Taking away the Vitamin E capsules she was making that time; he replaced it with a whole food supplement of vitamin E. Thinking she had nothing to lose, Dr. Marlene Merritt followed the doctor’s instructions and started feeling a whole lot better. Dr. Marlene Merritt got strong enough to go cycling again and eventually biked across the United States in 26 days. Her quality of life started getting better and better after that. She still has the valve that doesn’t work, but it doesn’t bother her like it used to. “I started getting healthier with supplements and whole foods. And I have Chinese Medicine’s ability to work with the body as a whole. It put all the pieces together. That trained me well for functional medicine,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. After her health improved, Dr. Marlene Merritt changed the core of her practice to nutrition. She went further by pursuing a Masters’ Degree in Nutrition which took her three years to complete.  Importance Of Supplementation Ultimately, supplementation was a big help to Dr. Marlene Merritt’s health. To illustrate this, she cites Dr. Bruce Ames’ triage theory. “Most people now are sub-clinically malnourished. So, what happens is, we never get full of nutrition. We’re never replete,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. The triage theory shows that our body developed a rationing response to shortages of micronutrients which are vitamins and minerals during our evolution. When our cells run out of a vitamin or mineral, that scarce micronutrient is given to proteins which are essential for short-term survival. On the other hand, proteins that are needed for long-term health and protection of DNA, lose out. They become disabled and lead to diseases of aging. The triage theory also explains how RDAs are chosen. The Truth About Fructose Like what most experts say, Dr. Marlene Merritt says eating sugar causes deficiency. In particular, she says the sugar component fructose does not metabolize the same as glucose does. And to understand all about blood sugar levels, we must first understand how our body processes sugar. “Fructose gets metabolized in the same pathways as alcohol. The other place that you get sugar is in the actual white sugar or brown. The sugar molecule sucrose is half glucose, half fructose. Sugar substitute agave is 90% fructose,” Dr. Marlene Merritt said. She adds, “Fructose turns into fat faster than any other sugar. And a lot of people are for whole grains. That works if you’re not having blood sugar issues. But when somebody has blood sugar issues that involve insulin and overreaction of insulin, then ultimately leads to diabetes, whole grains won’t work for them any longer. So, I often have to work with people about eating lesser carbs even the good ones.” Diet Sodas I’m sure most of us have heard or read that consuming too many diet sodas are bad for us or affects our blood sugar levels.  But surprisingly, Dr. Marlene Merritt says diet coke does not give us diabetes. It’s not causing us blood sugar issues at the moment, but it makes us addicted. Diet sodas and any processed food are engineered to be addictive. To read more about how foods can be addictive, Dr. Marlene Merritt recommends the book, Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss. “I can’t just say something is good or bad. Mostly there has to be some context to it. So, if I can keep an open mind and look at the research, most people don’t know how to find the research or read the research.”  Carbs Intake Dr. Marlene Merritt says fruits, beans, and oatmeal are best eaten in moderation. Because when somebody has blood sugar issues, it does not matter what kind of carb it is, it’s still problematic. And the reason fruit is included in the list is that although fruits don’t cause insulin reaction, the high fructose will damage the liver which speeds up your chances of getting diabetes. “Manage your carb intake. Carbs all break down to sugar.  Some will break down faster,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. “The whole grains break down slower, but it still doesn’t make them not a carb. the main problem is that it causes an insulin reaction. She adds, “And as you go farther into the spectrum of diabetes, it causes more of an insulin reaction. If you have insulin resistance, you cannot burn fat. Insulin is also the most inflammatory biomolecule there is. Plus, insulin also causes food retention. Plant-Based Diet As for plant-based diets, Dr. Marlene Merritt says the term doesn’t mean plants exclusively. Because she says, no culture is entirely vegan. Otherwise, we would have died without supplementation because being vegan is not a natural state. She further explains that one of the things that nutrition research is always kind of a challenge is because of a lot it observational. And observational doesn’t mean it’s wrong.  Instead, what they are looking at is an observation of whether there are other factors involved. “So, when somebody is eating a mostly plant-based diet and that culture, in particular, they have a very high community interaction. That’s social isolation. It affects health like smoking and obesity,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. Dr. Marlene Merritt also says that with a vegan lifestyle you restrict yourself that much, and you would have died of B12 deficiency. For those who are unaware, the most significant deficiencies are a B12 deficiency, zinc deficiency, iron, vitamin A and many others. Among these, B12 is the most well-known. “I’m not saying don’t eat plants. But rather, I’m saying vegan doesn’t work. That’s why they say plant proteins are not complete proteins,” shares Dr. Marlene Merritt. High Protein Diets But when it comes to high-protein diets, Dr. Marlene Merritt is not a proponent of high-protein diets either. This is because she thinks that we don’t manage meat well in a lot of ways. She also says animal protein doesn’t cause cancer. However, the situation may be different if you are eating conventional meat that is not well-treated, it’s been fed differently, or butchered differently. Dr. Marlene Merritt also shares that the muscle meat has the least amount of nutrition to it. So, she advises choosing the organ meats where the nutrition level is much higher. Cooking Methods Surprisingly, Dr. Marlene Merritt also busts myths about fried foods. She says in fried food like fried chicken; it’s the actual oil that the food is fried in that’s the problem. For frying, Dr. Marlene Merritt says it’s best to use avocado oil or refined coconut oil. As for other cooking methods, there are options like wet cooking which is either steaming, braising, or putting in stews and dry cooking which involves grilling or baking. Between the two, Dr. Marlene Merritt says dry cooking is not the best thing for proteins. When it comes to proper cooking protein like meat, Dr. Marlene Merritt shares that some ways of protecting the beef are adding vinegar or doing a marinade. Furthermore, cooking at a lower temperature is good. Recommended Foods Leafy greens at breakfast is an excellent way to start the day, says Dr. Marlene Merritt. Soups are also one of the most healing things for the gut. And Dr. Marlene Merritt even uses a teaspoon of bone broth for babies or small children who have colic or constipation.  An ideal diet is something that is vegetable heavy with some form of protein. And contrary to chicken breasts, Dr. Marlene Merritt prefers chicken with bones and skin, as well as some meats. For dessert, Dr. Marlene Merritt loves making a mashup of coconut milk, avocado, banana, a tablespoon of chocolate powder, and vanilla-flavored stevia mashed in a food processor. Ultimately, for the best diet for you, Dr. Marlene Merritt strongly suggests finding a Functional Medicine Practitioner who can tell you more about your health. Merritt Wellness Center Dr. Marlene Merritt’s practice offers a lot of services that not only focus on maintaining blood sugar or finding the right diet for you. The Merritt Wellness Center provides services ranging from functional medicine, nutritional testing, and long-distance consultation. They also offer full-body thermography, genetic testing, Chinese and Japanese fertility acupuncture, detox, stress management, and pediatrics. Her website is also filled with articles and schedules for events, lectures, and webinars.  So, I urge everyone to check it out.  Bio Dr. Marlene Merritt, DOM, MS Nutrition received her Masters’ degree in Oriental Medicine in 2000 and is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. She has an additional Masters’ degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Bridgeport.  Dr. Marlene Merritt is licensed by the New Mexico Board of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is nationally board certified in Oriental Medicine. She is an Applied Clinical Nutritionist and is additionally Board Certified in Bariatric Counseling, and certified in the Bredesen MEND Protocol™.  Dr. Marlene Merritt is also currently enrolled in the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Certification Program to become an IFM Certified Practitioner.

286 Transformational Nutrition, What Happens When You Include Personal, Psychological, and Spiritual Growth to Your Health Journey? Healing Emotional Pain, Trauma, Anxiety, Weight Loss, Food Addiction

www.cynthiapasquella.com http://transformationalnutrition.com   Transformational Nutrition http://learntruehealth.com/transformational-nutrition/ Transformational nutrition teaches us that having optimal health is not just about food. We need to create a more significant conversation for health because food alone won’t fix us. We’re in for such a treat today because Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia teaches the psychology and spirituality of transformation and health. You’ll get to learn how to have a more vibrant life with transformational nutrition. Through The Darkness Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that one time when she was speaking at a women’s conference. She talked about transformation, health, and weight loss as well as how to empower yourself, take control of life and health as a woman. When it was time to have the audience ask questions, a woman asked her how to get through all of the darkness. Another woman openly voiced her doubts about whether Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia could adequately answer the question since she seemed to have such a good life. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s whole life had been a struggle because she grew up in extreme poverty, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and domestic abuse. She was also sexually abused when she was six years old. So, in reality, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia lived a life that required her to be a survivor. Hitting Rock Bottom That’s not all. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia also tried to kill herself by overdosing on pills years ago. She was so sick, had chronic fatigue, was 25 lbs. overweight, had severe acne, memory loss, and brain fog. Naturally, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia was in no condition to work, so she was broke. It didn’t help that she didn’t have family nor many close friends. She recalls living in a constant state of fear and panic. And although she tried many things, nothing helped. One day, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia decided to pull herself up. Taking a shower, she discovered lumps on her breasts, hence hit rock bottom that day. She again felt utterly broken. So she still thought of suicide, suffered from depression and mental health issues. She felt so sick of fighting. “But I heard this voice, and it was my wake call. That voice said, “This hasn’t happened to you. It’s happened to you.” I then realized these things were supposed to be happening for me. Because I realized that at that moment, greatness was my birthright,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.  Investing In Herself Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia ended up signing up for a nutrition certification program when she decided to invest in herself. She went on to other school and training programs. And as her health improved, she slowly began to work with clients. “It’s not just about the food. The food alone will never heal us. There are reasons behind why we know what to do, and yet we still won’t do it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “I also realized we have this deeper hunger. So, understand your spirituality and what you are hungry for.”  She adds, “I started understanding the spiritual connection, relationships and heart connection was so important to healing. That’s when I started to see true transformation.”  Developing Transformational Nutrition From that period, good things started to unfold. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s weight fell off, her skin cleared up, and the lumps in her breasts turned out to be fibers, not cancers. She also started to understand at a deeper level the root cause of her health issues and heart issues. Furthermore, remembering her deal with God, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia got to work and started helping other people. Combining the science of nutrition with the psychology and spirituality nutrition, that’s where she created a method called transformational nutrition. Shortly after she created the transformational nutrition method, more people wanted to dive deeper into learning more about it.  So, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia turned it into a more significant educational focus. She started a school and called it the Institute of Transformational Nutrition. Now, the school certifies people to become transformational nutrition coaches. How To Begin Your Transformation First of all, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what you are and why you are that way. Because ultimately, when you know, you’ll automatically transform into who you’re always meant to be. It’s only then can you step into your power.  “I like to ask people what they are hungry for. And what we’re all hungry for in the end is validation and acceptance for who we are. Usually, we are trying to be a version of ourselves that we think other people want. So we end up pretending our entire lives,” explains Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.  She adds, “We are compromising who we are and what we want, as well as the things that truly make us happy. You don’t have transformation if you don’t experience some biological change, some spiritual change, and some psychological change. You have to develop a deeper understanding and a deeper truth that you can truly embody before you truly heal.” Ultimately, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says it’s really about getting out of your head and into your heart. She says we tend to be logical, but that’s not the way we work. Instead, we make all of our decisions based on emotions and then we use logic to back it up. Understanding Emotions Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that in reality, emotions only last for 90 seconds. Because the thing that makes it last longer are the stories that you keep replaying in your head about the experience. “A belief is made up of three things. It’s the event that happened, the emotion that you felt and the explanation that you gave it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “So when you are feeling these emotions, go back to the explanations that you gave it. I think we have to remember if we want to be understood, we need to understand.”  How We Deal With Negativity As humans, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says we have this thing called negativity bias. It’s when we hear something negative, we latch on to it and see that as the truth. We then spend the rest of our lives searching for evidence that the belief is true. “It’s just the way we’re built. And it’s designed to protect us. It is designed to show us our flaws. So just let it go and stop beating yourself up,” advises Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.  She adds, “We are just hardwired to pay more attention to negative information than positive information. Then it goes back to the most basic need which is just survival. When there has been extreme trauma in a person’s life, they can block the memory out, and the brain won’t remember.” Blocking The Trauma Our brain is indeed a very powerful organ. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia personally witnessed it when her sister did not remember having a child after a car accident, and her child passed away. “The body’s number one goal is to stay alive. And the brain knows that. So, if the brain knows something that the body can’t handle, it just blocks it out. And you won’t remember it,” Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia said. Essentially, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what’s going on in your mind and your spirit if you genuinely want to heal. Because it is very powerful. “See what serves you, and always look within yourself for that truth. But if you don’t ever live your truth, you’re always going to be imprisoned by other people’s opinions. You will always be hungry for that one thing you don’t have.” Numbing The Pain When you numb pain, you numb joy. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says when you are numbing that past that caused trauma and the fear you felt from that, you’re numbing happiness and bliss.  So mostly, you’re taking away all of your power and giving it to the past, and that’s not okay. “You’ll never be able to fill those void with anything other than what’s missing in the first place,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “Food is so acceptable. So is the glorification of wine and drinking especially for moms and entrepreneurs. Because it is socially acceptable. We have to be willing to get back into the driver’s seat of our own life.”  She adds, “We’re here because we follow the status quo. But the real reason why we’re here is because we gave up our power. It’s time to do something different and time to start understanding. Furthermore, it’s a time to reconnect with who you are and a time to share and understand.” Transformational Nutrition Website If you wish to get on that road to begin transformational nutrition, check out Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s website for more information.

285 Mind Love, Overcome and Achieve Anything, Mindset, Positive Energy, Healing Eating Disorders, Digestive Issues, Trauma, Willpower, Rewiring Habits, Yoga, Reiki, FreeFall Skydiving, Melissa Monte,

Melissa's Podcast: https://mindlove.com Mind Love http://learntruehealth.com/mind-love Having a positive mindset is sometimes tricky when we are overwhelmed with problems and challenging situations. Even when it feels hopeless, we can still learn how to push ourselves to embrace a positive mindset. My guest Melissa Monte is such a fantastic person.  She survived the worst situations all because of a positive mindset, and she’ll teach us how to do that in the episode. Traumatic Years Although Melissa Monte had a great childhood, her life took a drastic turn when she experienced several traumas during her teens. Melissa Monte was raped twice, her close friend committed suicide, and her dad passed away. Melissa Monte and her mom had different ways of coping.  Her mom was part of a book club. So, even if Melissa Monte dealt with her traumas by partying a lot in college, she managed to borrow books from her mother occasionally. But it wasn’t enough to help her fix her issues or have a positive mindset. “Because of ignoring some of those issues I was dealing with, it started to manifest in my life in other ways. I developed a dangerous eating disorder. And I was a bulimic for eight years,” said Melissa Monte. She added, ” I was also attracting negative people. Plus, I found myself in jail for my ex-boyfriend’s crime, which led to a two-year legal battle. When I hit rock bottom, I knew I had to do something.” Baby Steps Melissa Monte said she took baby steps by reading books, following advice from successful people, and applied it to her life. She says it was not an overnight change, but more like a decade of growth. As time went one, Melissa Monte felt that it started to become essential for her to share the things she did. Because apparently, people started asking and noticing significant differences in her. Hence, Melissa Monte did some steps to realize her full purpose. “Everything has been different in the last year. Because everything feels so much more meaningful to me. It’s easier to keep my goals now and keep making progress. That’s how Mind Love podcast came about. It’s sharing tips that changed my life,” Melissa Monte said. Learning To Forgive Melissa Monte says the first thing about having a positive mindset is learning how to forgive. In her case, Melissa Monte’s parents divorced young. Although she has a great stepdad, she felt resentful towards her real dad. When Melissa Monte’s dad was diagnosed with cancer, that’s the time she made more effort to connect. One of the things that surprised her was a large number of homeless people came to her father’s funeral. That’s the moment of clarity that added to Melissa Monte’s guilt of never understanding. Hence, she felt that the first step to a positive mindset and change was to forgive herself for that. “Forgiveness is such a big part of any change. Because without forgiveness, you will only be repeating negative thought patterns in your head all the time. You’re going to be talking yourself down,” explains Melissa Monte. Melissa Monte did the same thing with the suicide situation. She revealed that her friend said he was going to commit suicide years before. But Melissa Monte, who was then only 15 years old, didn’t take it seriously.  She thought it was the typical teenagers’ way of getting attention. For the longest time, she blamed herself and learned to drink because of that tragedy. “Everything is a process, and I realize how important it is to have compassion for yourself. Once I did, that opened the door for all the other changes that mean a lot to me,” said Melissa Monte. “Like finding the passion or understanding of how the brain works and working with that. All the little things add up.”  Developing Habits Melissa Monte says that one of the books that helped her was the Power of Habit, by award-winning New York Times reporter Charles Duhigg. Because at her lowest point, Melissa Monte was just taken over by so many harmful habits like bulimia. “Bulimia is a series of activities that you do over and over again, and it is a habit that takes over your life. And it’s like a psychological disorder,” Melissa Monte said. “I also used to bite my nails until they bled. It was my biggest insecurity, and I couldn’t figure out how to stop.” But when Melissa Monte started to read about changing and disrupting these circuits that you put your brain into, something just clicked. She began to experiment on what works for her. “I think the biggest thing that started to influence my changes were developing positive routines positively. Try to do the replacement method and change one small thing that’s doable,” said Melissa Monte. Changing Her Diet One thing Melissa Monte gave up was coffee and switched it to Macha latte instead. The same thing happened with regards to changing her diet. She went vegan and started making small steps like changing breakfast. “Eggs was the last thing I gave up. I make a lot of things in bulk because I don’t like buying processed foods,” said Melissa Monte. “Making food with a pressure cooker is good. I often make beans and quinoa, keep in the fridge while my husband often makes superfoods scramble with kale.” Self Journal The very first thing that Melissa Monte added to her routine that was helpful is her 5-minute gratitude journal. She recommends the journals from Best Self. Melissa Monte writes to focus on the right things happening in her life. Because ultimately, she says our brain starts seeking things to be grateful for throughout the day, and then they shift your focus. It also makes you aware to have a positive mindset. “Journaling allows you to write down lessons learned. It forces you to acknowledge where you could have done better and keep track of your wins and accomplishments. Journaling also sometimes helps you look back and see how far you’ve come,” Melissa Monte said.  Good Support System To develop a positive mindset and build personal growth, it is advisable to get yourself surrounded by people who can make you be the best version of you.  Melissa Monte found herself enjoying the company of the people participating in Toastmasters International. Toastmasters International is an organization where people are encouraged to speak to an audience about a variety of topics. According to Melissa Monte, many of the participants have inspiring stories that can serve as tools for your growth. “So many of us start to practice something and keep doing it over and over. People say practice makes perfect but not always. The right kind of practice makes perfect,” said Melissa Monte. She adds, “I’m a strong believer in being selective on who you spend time with. Because people are either going to lift you up or drag you down. That’s probably one of the biggest things I noticed from my growth. It’s cool when you find your light and shining. And it’s infectious.” Another great organization is We Quilt. They have chapters in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. We quilt an organization where women uplift each other. Being Patient Melissa Monte again stresses that results are not seen overnight.  She says everything might feel fake at first. And that when you first make a change, it might feel phony building a new habit. But then she also says you have a limited amount of energy so use it wisely. Just don’t let energy vampires suck that out of you. “Not everyone is meant to be around forever, and people have their purpose up to a certain time. It’s ok to let go of not only people but also new habits if it doesn’t make you grow,” said Melissa Monte. Shark Bait Test Melissa Monte shares that one of the biggest game changers for her was the Shark Bait Test where you write a letter to a bunch of people that you know. In Melissa Monte’s case, she wrote to eleven people from different walks of her life. She asked them what they saw in her, and what her superpower was. Melissa Monte feels this was one of her most significant aha moments to finding her Mind Love podcast. Six people wrote almost the same word that Melissa Monte was supposedly good at. So, Melissa Monte did the work to figure out what her perfect little path would be.  “I used to think that just because I was always learning, that it was automatically being applied to my life. You have to make time to apply it,” said Melissa Monte. She adds, “Be thankful for the journey no matter what you’re going through. You might not realize the purpose of something until even ten years down the road. Just trust the process.” Mindfulness To further connect with yourself, Melissa Monte suggests picking three things each day that you are thankful for. It forces you to be more strategic on those things that can move you towards your goal rather than just picking what’s more comfortable. “Mindfulness is a big part of my life. I’ve been meditating for twenty minutes every day. This helps clear your head and define stillness,” Melissa Monte explains. “It’s been scientifically proven that people who meditate, basically have more control over their emotions.” Mind Love Podcast Melissa Monte’s Mind Love podcast aims to dive deep into your inner self really and how you should feel about yourself. Being mindful can also help us have a healthier sex life. So many emotions go through our body. When we know how to be open and communicate with our partner, that positivity can radiate and strengthen our feminine power. One book that Melissa Monte recommends reading is Pussy: A Reclamation. The book goes into the history of women and stresses that women have been powerful beings from the beginning of time. “We carry the energy that creates life, and we create life with our body. There are so many powerful things. It’s important to share these stories and remind women of their power. Show them they’re not alone,” said Melissa Monte. She adds, “It is important to share stories with people and help somebody else through it. If you have come out at the other end of that struggle, you must help people. Throw a lifeline to those people who are at the beginning of that tunnel. Pull them with you. It’s how we evolve as a species even faster.”  Bio Melissa Monte is one of today’s influential and thought-provoking explorers of the mindset and positive energy.  Melissa’s has lived through what some call extreme life experience, suffering multiple traumas in a short period, which eventually manifested into a dangerous eating disorder and chronic intestinal damage.  Her countless hours of research and self-experimentation guided by her desire to heal her body and mind contribute to her vast knowledge of improving the human condition.  On her popular, heartfelt podcast “Mind Love,” she discusses mindset shifts, modern mindfulness and the universal truths of success through raw stories, personal experience, and inspiring interviews.

284 Healing Digestion For Thyroid, Metabolism, Weight Loss, Skin Health, Hypothyroid, Hoshimotes, Hemp Seed Oil, Parasites, Ann Louise Gittleman, Ashley James, Learn True Health

Radical Metabolism http://learntruehealth.com/radical-metabolism/ Radical metabolism is a book that may be the answer to your health woes.  Most of us experience symptoms and jump on the chance to mask it with drugs. But there is a need to dig deeper into the cause of our health ailments and treat it naturally. Ann Louise Gittleman is a respected Nutritionist and a bestselling author of more than thirty books. Join us in this episode as she talks extensively on radical metabolism and everything there is to know about healing digestion. Way before writing the book Radical Metabolism, I first came to know Ann Louise Gittleman at 13 years old when my mom bought her book, Guess What Came To Dinner. It influenced my childhood by educating my family about parasites and teaching us how to adapt strategies for long-term health. Finding Her Mission Ann Louise Gittleman was named after her paternal grandmother Anna. Her grandmother died at the age of 42 from a mysterious illness after a trip to the mountains. Because of that family tragedy, it triggered Ann Louise Gittleman’s yearning to research all about finding the root causes of diseases. Growing up, she pursued a Ph.D. degree in Holistic Nutrition. She went on to write books and to date, has written over 30 books that have helped a lot of people understand the real cause of their illness. “My mission is finding the underlying causes of mystery diseases. The answer is lying somewhere. I want to give people hope and healing,” said Ann Louise Gittleman.  Caring For Your GI Tract Caring for your GI tract is very important for your health. And according to Ann Louise Gittleman, if you’re feeling sick, there is most likely a sneaky glitch in the GI tract that may be distracting the thyroid glands. “I discovered that people with reduced bile flow are almost ten times likely to suffer from hyperthyroidism. It slows down metabolism and is very important in keeping our immunity at a high pitch,” said Ann Louise Gittleman.  She adds, “So I’m trying to bring back the bile and gallbladder function into the forefront. Because sluggish bile can slow your thyroid. And 85% of us over 40 suffer from insufficient or poor-quality bile.”  Connection Between Thyroid and Bile Ann Louise Gittleman says the dietary fats in our body supply us with raw materials that are very necessary to produce thyroid hormones that are activated. And when that fat is stored in cells that aren’t broken down by bile, the thyroid doesn’t get the message to get the building blocks it needs. “So, when bile is released, it can not only break down dietary fat, but it seems to trigger the increase in the production of the particular enzyme that converts T4 inactive thyroid into active thyroid hormone which is T3,” Ann Louise Gittleman said.  Role of Bile Many of us forget that bile plays a significant role in our health.  We often overlook this part of our body, when in reality, having healthy bile can solve many health problems. “Bile is a critical detox method from the liver. And we have forgotten that. So many of us are exposed to toxins,” said Ann Louise Gittleman. Ann Louise Gittleman says the following are some signs that your bile needs attention: If you feel bloated especially after a fatty meal, you may have inadequate bile flow or sub-optimal bile which could be affecting metabolism and overall health. Feeling dizzy Having grey or light-colored stools Insomnia or middle of the night sleep disturbances Radiating pain We get dizzy because we are not able to moderate the production of the bile when we eat certain foods. So, our blood sugar is not adequate. On the other hand, insomnia is also related to blood sugar issues. “Without bile, you’re losing your abilities for omega 3, or omega 6, 7 and 9. Some people have all kinds of ear ringing. It has something to do with the clogged gallbladder meridian when the bile becomes congested,” Ann Louise Gittleman explains.  Radical Metabolism Book Ann Louise Gittleman’s Radical Metabolism book is a recommended read for anyone who wants to improve their digestive system, autoimmune issues, thyroid issues, weight loss issues and many more. “My book helps your metabolism, allows you to lose weight, it’s good for skin and the immune system,” said Ann Louise Gittleman. “With a better detox method, you can reduce the inflammation that could be the underlying cause of some autoimmune issues. We’ve had wonderful results of people undergoing radical metabolism and solves problems such as Hashimoto’s.” Radical Metabolism Plan The Radical Metabolism plan recommends a 4-day Radical Intensive Cleanse which targets the healing of your digestive tract, detoxifies your body, and restores your mitochondria. Once the initial program is done, one must follow it up with the 21-Day Radical Reboot & Maintenance Plan. Under the 21-Day Radical Reboot & Maintenance Plan, you’ll be taught what food combinations are best for you to see significant results. And Ann Louise Gittleman attests that a lot of people have successfully benefitted from her program. “When you got the right bile by eating the right foods and supplements, it’s very lubricating for the intestinal tract,” said Ann Louise Gittleman.  Radical Metabolism Gifts When you buy Ann Louise Gittleman’s book, you’ll also get three gifts: 25 recipes to get you started Returning your kitchen by teaching you how to plan and prepare foods the right way. Crushing Cravings for a Radical Metabolism. It’s a report listing three unique cravings-busting tools to decrease your hunger while increasing your metabolic firepower. That’s not all! Upon checkout, you’ll also get a 30% discount to buy Ann Louise Gittleman’s special coffee which is formulated as an energy blaster and a detox element, as well as good for the heart. Bile Builder Ann Louise Gittleman created Bile Builder about four years ago.  She produced this supplement because she wasn’t able to find all the nutrients that she felt could effectively thin the bile and make that bile flow adequately. Producing the product, Ann Louise Gittleman then made a trial on clients, and their thyroid started to normalize. Bile Builder contains choline, taurine, beetroot, pancreatic lipase, ox bile and Collinsonia root. “Make sure you have adequate bile. So, we need some gallbladder support just like people who had their thyroids removed. You need some hormonal support,” said Ann Louise Gittleman.  She adds, “First is to digest and assimilate fats. Make sure bile is being congested because estrogen sources surround us. And excess estrogen is prevalent in contraceptives and food additives. It can raise cholesterol levels in the bile which makes that particular digestive fluid even thicker and prone to becoming so much more congested.” For Those With Hashimoto’s For those suffering from Hashimoto’s, Ann Louise Gittleman assesses that there could be some retroactive viruses. That’s why she recommends going gluten-free. She also suggests taking liquid iodine, potassium, and manganese. This is to get the thyroid functioning the way it needs to. “Take a high dosage of omega 6 and 1 to 2 tablespoons of unprocessed hemp seed oil to build the cell membranes and protect it against bacteria, virus, and toxins,” advises Ann Louise Gittleman. “Walnuts are high in omega 6 and sesame oil is also good. Pine nut oil is also great to heal the digestive tract.” And speaking about omega 6, Ann Louise Gittleman says deficiencies of omega 6 include health conditions like eczema, psoriasis, joint pains, and menopause. She also says to be aware of heavy metals. Because apparently, heavy metals can leak into your food via certain utensils. Loving The Bitter Flavor We’re so used to dishes that are salty, sweet, sour or spicy. Seldom do we favor foods that taste bitter but according to Ann Louise Gittleman, bitter is better.  This is because the taste of bitter is vital to stimulate digestion. Ann Louise Gittleman further explains that bitter foods increase the tone of your lower GI tract. “It is important to detoxify your system, get the digestive juices flowing and enable to heal a leaky gut,” said Ann Louise Gittleman. Begin Your Health Journey Ann Louise Gittleman says one way of beginning your health journey is taking a high amount of vitamin C to withstand the stress of all the toxins that we have to fight off all day. Her blogs on her website is also an excellent resource for information. “We can all find unusual ways of detoxifying our system. And eating for better metabolism, getting better health in general and warding off all these autoimmune challenges that seem to be plaguing us in this day and age,” said Ann Louise Gittleman.  Bio Ann Louise Gittleman, New York Times bestselling author of more than thirty books including The Fat Flush Plan series and Before the Change, has been revolutionizing the rules of health and nutrition for more than three decades. Her latest book is called Radical Metabolism.  She holds an MS in Nutrition Education from Columbia University, the title of Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) from the American College of Nutrition, and a Ph.D. in Holistic Nutrition. Ann Louise Gittleman has also served as the Chief Nutritionist of the Pediatric Clinic at Bellevue Hospital and is the former Director of Nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Santa Monica, CA.  Ann Louise Gittleman currently sits on the Advisory Board for the International Institute for Building-Biology & Ecology, the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc. and Clear Passage, Inc.

Many factors contribute to thyroid issues. Some of the common causes of thyroid issues are autoimmune diseases, iodine deficiency, inflammation, nodules, tumors and genetic disorders.  But we don’t need to turn to drugs. My returning guest, Dr. Stephen Lewis will teach us ways on how to treat thyroid issues naturally. Dr. Stephen Lewis first guested on the show last year, and we talked about chronic fatigue syndrome. For those who haven’t heard Episode 117, which is my episode with Dr. Stephen Lewis, here’s some information about his background. Chiropractor Training Dr. Stephen Lewis first trained as a chiropractor. He got out of chiropractor college in 1981 and always believed in nutrition. Recalling his childhood years, Dr. Stephen Lewis remembers that his family’s chiropractor used to counsel his family on vitamins, mineral, and herbs. “Bottomline, it’s all about getting out the toxins and getting in the nutrients. Your body is smart enough to heal. Don’t lose hope,” said Dr. Stephen Lewis. “Have positive expectations because your spirit and your mind have a lot to do with what kind of outcome you have.” Current Situation Dr. Stephen Lewis says that some problems that contribute to the growing number of people with thyroid issues are the fact that the United States government subsidizes soy, wheat, and corn. So, it ends up being a cheap commodity. “And when it is fertilized, it creates more protein. And more protein in plants is called gluten. That’s where are a lot of the autoimmune diseases are coming from. In the end, you get the leaky gut syndrome.”  He adds, “Gut and inflammation are always in the equation. You can give the thyroid things it needs to work with but fix the gut first. When you fix your gut, your brain also gets well. You get better nerve signals to the thyroid.”  Recommended Foods Dr. Stephen Lewis admits that he was a fan of the Atkins diet years ago. But breaking down the foods to stay away from, Dr. Stephen Lewis suggest throwing the grains away. He also believes that MSG is too toxic. “Even some of the vitamins and drugs has cancer-causing dyes. The best way to heal things is to change the mental perception because we foresee things like food that’s not food,” said Dr. Stephen Lewis. “Forget the things that are in a box or bag that has all the ingredients that sound like chemicals.”  He adds, “We don’t love ourselves enough to accept the good things. The universe has incredible things for us. Healing the gut makes us live a more fulfilled life because of the neurotransmitters that make us happy. The probiotics do a lot to heal the gut and take the load off the thyroid.” Dr. Stephen Lewis says fermented foods can also be beneficial but more than that; he recommends eating more seafood. A significant factor in why Japan has a low rate of people suffering from thyroid issues and breast cancer is because the Japanese eat a lot of seaweed which is full of iodine. “I don’t think the iodized salt is enough. But I’m a big fan of Himalayan sea salt or Celtic sea salt. Because it has a better profile. Although I never give iodine to a Hashimoto’s patient. On the other hand, flour is devastating to a diabetic,” said Dr. Stephen Lewis.  Importance of Vegetables Like most experts who have guested on the show, Dr. Stephen Lewis recommends including a variety of vegetables, especially cruciferous vegetables in your diet. And corn, by the way, is not a vegetable. Cruciferous vegetables are known to protect us from disease, and it’s anti-cancer. Some examples of these vegetables are broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, bok choy, Brussel sprouts and garden cress.  “My favorite is avocados, guava, apples, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes and different types of greens. Widen your scope of what you consume. I do a lot of walnuts and pecans. And I think the keto craze is the best thing ever,” Dr. Stephen Lewis said.  He adds, “I don’t judge. And although I’m not a vegan, having an all-meat diet is not good either. I don’t think vegan is the healthiest diet. Americans overeat meat. It all boils down to quality and moderation is the key.” Truth About Cholesterol Dr. Stephen Lewis reveals that there is enough inflammation to make the cholesterol stick. And there’s good and bad cholesterol that’s responsible for heart disease. One way to measure is via an hsCRP test. The test is a highly sensitive quantification of CRP, an acute-phase protein released into the blood by the liver during inflammation.  It is associated with the presence of heart disease.  “Thyroid has a lot to do with whether your cholesterol is good or bad, as does liver and GI function. Cholesterol is not about heart disease. It’s about what is your inflammation level or magnesium level,” said Dr. Stephen Lewis. Taking Supplements If you plan to take supplements, Dr. Stephen Lewis advises researching the ingredients of the product.  There is a big difference in the quality of supplements. “I suggest some products that happen to be animal-derived. Otherwise, there would be no results. You need a digestive enzyme that contains some animal products. And you need the glandulars, like the thyroid grandulars and the adrenal glandulars,” Dr. Stephen Lewis explains. Dr. Stephen Lewis sources most of his products from companies that get it out of Argentina and New Zealand where they have cleaner cows, sheep, and pigs compared to the United States.  He believes it’s a sad reality to have to source a lot of raw materials out of America to get it clean. Myths Around Thyroid Dr. Stephen Lewis says that most people jump to conclusions and self-diagnose themselves to have thyroid problems after exhibiting some symptoms. He believes you have to be careful with that because there are so many other conditions that present the same symptom. Some common symptoms are headaches upon waking up, depression, constipation, poor circulation and slowed immune system. Some other symptoms are itchy dry skin at the back of your arm, elbow, and shoulder, as well as hair fall. Iodine Treatment Dr. Stephen Lewis says that the first thing for people with thyroid issues is to go for iodine. But if you have Hashimoto’s, have yourself undergo a test first. “Many times when you get on the proper amount of iodine, you can override where those receptors are filled with bromine or fluoride or chlorine,” said Dr. Stephen Lewis. “Keloid scars will go away with a proper amount of iodine. Many cysts in the breast will go away.” Furthermore, Dr. Stephen Lewis says that people who have too much mucus production and hemorrhoids need iodine. The same applies to people with ovarian issues and prostate disorders. Ultimately, many people have benefitted many times from thyroid supplementation with iodine for the thyroid. Dr. Stephen Lewis usually sells iodine and iodide to patients and clients. He explains that your body needs co-factors. And if your body is depleted in those co-factors, that means your body isn’t optimally going to be able to benefit from the supplements you take.  “The thyroid has a lot to do with what your body produces and absorbs. I like to put on serotonin and dopamine. They are feel-good hormones. Dopamine deficiently is highly tied to the thyroid. And those who are deficient are the ones who become addicts,” said Dr. Stephen Lewis.  Green Wisdom Health If you’d like additional references from Dr. Stephen Lewis, do check out his website. It contains links to his blog, online store, podcast and his book called the Thyroid Sniper. The website also features a short quiz which will calculate your current health situation. You’ll be able to contact Dr. Stephen Lewis through the numbers published on his website. Words of Wisdom Lastly, Dr. Stephen Lewis advises being careful. And don’t go with just one list. It also helps if you can go to a good doctor. “Your body will take care of itself. And some of that paranoia is because the thyroid is not working correctly,” said Dr. Stephen Lewis. “I think that a good multi-vitamin is always good.” Personally, Dr. Stephen Lewis loves the excellent fish oils. Because of fish oil so anti-inflammatory. He says it’s a long process to get the inflammation down. It starts at about two weeks and then gets better after that. So, it’s best that you also find a good support system to guide you through.  “If a person is feeling sad, they need to do something to brighten someone else’s day. I think you need to give what you want the universe to give back to you. It can give you so much joy and energy to do that,” Dr. Stephen Lewis said.  Bio Dr. Lewis is the author of “The Thyroid Sniper”.  He is based in Texas with wife Janet who is a Certified Natural Health Consultant.  Together they run Doctor’s Nutrition, offering medical lab services at affordable rates.  Get Connected With Dr. Stephen Lewis!

282 You Are Not Your Diagnosis, BodyTalk, Shifting Mindset For Healing, Addiction, Stress, Pain, Insomnia, ADHD, Depression, Chronic Illness, PTSD, Holistic Therapy, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson, Ashley Jame

Lyn's Book: You Are Not Your Diagnosis https://amzn.to/2nyXyTh Lyn's website: https://bodytalkportland.com   BodyTalk Access http://learntruehealth.com/bodytalk-access BodyTalk Access is such a fantastic tool that everyone should learn. Through BodyTalk Access, you’d be able to be more present and aware of what’s going on in your body. And Lyn Delmastro-Thomson is the perfect guest to talk about BodyTalk Access and the techniques behind BodyTalk Access, in this episode. Personal Journey Like many other experts who have taken control of their health and shifted away from healing treatments through medication, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson’s journey towards true health began when she was pursuing her academic degree. From college, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson went on to graduate school. She initially thought she wanted to be in the world of academia as a Professor of History. Looking back, she realized it was because she was scared to be a grown-up. By the time she got into her graduate program, it felt like a mismatch but went on to pursue studies for three years. The Misdiagnosis At 25 years old, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson was supposed to have elective surgery during the summer of 2004. But the night before surgery, her doctor called and reported that her pre-op bloodwork showed abnormalities. Postponing the surgery, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson was instructed to see a primary doctor who diagnosed her with leukemia.  She was fearful and overwhelmed with the news. Things took a drastic turn when two years later, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson found out it was a misdiagnosis. However, by that time, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson had already been taking medication wherein she was given a pill to target whatever the genetic abnormality was. And one of the side effects of the pill was nausea.  Taking Control Because nobody listened to her, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson began to emerge from the dark cloud that hung over her.  As a result, she began to seek alternative ways of healing her body. Lyn Delmastro-Thomson got a different primary doctor outside the student health clinic. This what when the new doctor said she was misdiagnosed with leukemia. It wasn’t long before Lyn Delmastro-Thomson filed a medical malpractice case against her previous doctor. But it didn’t end the way she liked it. Nevertheless, she didn’t regret filing a case because all she wanted was to hold the doctor accountable for his actions. As for her new diagnosis, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson’s new doctor reported that she had a different type of blood disorder. Her body was making too many different cells in the blood. This includes platelets, white cells, and blood cells. Coping With Depression When Lyn Delmastro-Thomson was trying to recover her health, she returned to getting weekly biofeedback sessions. According to her, it was something she was exposed to at the age of 12 when horrific migraines took over her life. To heal, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson began attending a “yoga for healing” class at a local studio in Santa Barbara. She used therapy to help her process grief, fear and overwhelming especially since it was around this time that her best friend suddenly passed away the following year. Lyn Delmastro-Thomson realized life is short. She realized she could no longer pursue something that brought her no joy. So she quit her program and got a job while trying to figure things out. She recalls that it was during one of her my weekly biofeedback sessions, that she realized what she wanted to do. She saw herself learning the approach and eventually helping others. Because of that. She found herself enjoying yoga for healing class more, and became excited to train to teach therapeutic yoga as well. “After I got over depression, I realized I was just terrified. Because I didn’t know how to process any of the things that happened for the past year and a half,” said Lyn Delmastro-Thomson. “It felt everything in my life was falling apart. At one point I wanted to die, but I realized I didn’t want to die.” She adds, “I didn’t know how to handle everything because I had no tools to process it. Part of it is going to a therapist and talking to them about how I was healing. I was fortunate to have a therapist who introduced yoga for healing.” Benefits Of Yoga According to Lyn Delmastro-Thomson yoga helped her find things that felt positive and good. Her yoga teacher worked a lot with people with cancer. That’s why her focus was on assisting people to find ease and comfort in their body. “One of the breakthroughs for me was when I was in a biofeedback session. I saw myself as the practitioner and doing this with somebody else. I see the same way about yoga because I found it beneficial for myself and eventually my clients,” said Lyn Delmastro-Thomson.  Pivotal Year Lyn Delmastro-Thomson says 2007 was a pivotal year. She stepped out of the graduate program, had a job and had help insurance. Then she decided to take up a psychology program, where she studied for two years to get her Masters’ degree. Ultimately, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson learned a lot from the program.  It was primarily about honoring the fact that there is an interconnection between the body and the mind. Plus, it also got she intrigued with the concept of combining dance and therapy. When Lyn Delmastro-Thomson started practicing, she encountered something called BodyTalk Access at a networking event. It was through a woman who was a practitioner. Lyn Delmastro-Thomson remembered her a year later when she developed a pain on her left knee. Despite trying Holistic approaches, nothing worked.  Until Lyn Delmastro-Thomson got in touch with the woman who quickly got the root of what was going on. “She facilitated something which was active memory techniques. It helps the brain process and dissociates whatever trauma and emotion are blocked from that experience,” said Lyn Delmastro-Thomson. BodyTalk Access According to Lyn Delmastro-Thomson, BodyTalk Access is created by Dr. John Veltheim who is from Australia. Dr. John Veltheim is a chiropractor, acupuncturist, philosopher, Reiki Master, lecturer, and teacher. It was in the 90’s when Dr. John Veltheim first developed BodyTalk Access. Like Lyn Delmastro-Thomson, he developed the program in an attempt to resolve his health issues. Dr. John Veltheim eventually found a simple technique to correct his condition.  Because of this breakthrough, he improved it and started training instructors so the system could be taught to people who needed to be treated. Listening To Your Body Lyn Delmastro-Thomson says that to understand your body, it entails listening to anything from the immune system, allergy and energetic part of your body. And her role is helping clients understand the situation. “The body is telling its story to the practitioner, and then I’m sharing that story. This is what your body is communicating to me about why you’re having these particular issues. It’s a layer by layer process,” said Lyn Delmastro-Thomson. Client’s Progress Lyn Delmastro-Thomson says that the end point of her program depends on her clients. Because each person is different, and the program is customized, it isn’t possible to achieve results within the same time frame. “Personally, this was my health care. Even if I’m not working on some big issue, I would need some maintenance like occasional acupuncture or massage,” said Lyn Delmastro-Thomson. She adds, “I typically work with clients for six months to a year. This applies to most of my clients with chronic illness or autoimmune disease. I speak to people twice a month since it is a period for integration between sessions of the body.” You Are Not Your Diagnosis Lyn Delmastro-Thomson’s book You Are Not Your Diagnosis is a memoir of what she went through.  It also contains tips on being cautious about what language we use because our words are powerful. “It’s like you’re claiming ownership. There are tips on how to talk about chronic illness or chronic diagnosis without reinforcing it into your reality with the words that you use,” said Lyn Delmastro-Thomson. Aside from that, the book also contains strategies for people to implement, to take control of their health and heal without band-aids or pills. Her book is an excellent resource for people trying to recover. She cites another excellent book, The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton.  The book will help you understand the importance of positive thinking, so you can truly heal. BodyTalk Access Class For those who are in the Portland, Oregon area, you’re in for a treat! Because on September 14, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson is conducting a self-care protocol from 9 am to 5 pm. The protocol is pretty simple. It only takes around ten minutes a day and involves five techniques. First is the Cortices, which is a Brain-Balancing Technique. It is followed by Switching or Stress Level Balance. The third technique is learning to balance hydration. The fourth is about Body Chemistry, to help balance the immune system. Last but not the least is Reciprocals, to help re-establish the integrity of the body’s structures, improve postural alignment, increase flexibility and circulation of fluids and energy. Simple Technique Here’s how to condition your body to heal.  According to Lyn Delmastro-Thomson, this can be done in ten minutes or less. Breathe deeply. Inhale and exhale while being present and aware. Do a body scan from top of the head all the way down. Notice the areas where there is tension anywhere in the body. Ask is there anything that area wants from you or asking for. Power Of The Mind Like many experts, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson says our brain is powerful.  To get well, you have to believe that it will work. “When somebody is dealing with something like chronic illness, the first thing that’s important is realizing that it doesn’t have to be your reality,” said Lyn Delmastro-Thomson. “Doctors come from a perspective of what they observed and learned in medical school, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will happen to you. You can shape things by believing your body can heal.”  Bio Lyn Delmastro-Thomson has a master’s degree in somatic psychology and is a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and BodyTalk Access Trainer. After being misdiagnosed with leukemia at the age of 25, she became a curious explorer of a wide variety alternative medicine approaches.  In this process, Lyn Delmastro-Thomson discovered her life’s work: supporting women living with life-changing diagnoses to find true healing so they may thrive beyond their diagnoses. She lives in the Portland, Oregon area and is an avid ballroom and Latin dancer, pianist, wife, and a proud mom to a puppy (Chico) and kitten (Cannoli). Get Connected With Lyn Delmastro-Thomson!

281 Genetics, Epigenetics, Architects of Our Own Destiny, Optimizing Human Potential, Lifestyle Modifications to Optimize Genetic Expressions, Dr. Daniel Stickler, Ashley James, Learn True Health

www.apeironcenter.com www.Apeiron.academy   Genetic Expressions http://learntruehealth.com/genetic-expressions Genetic expressions significantly tell us if we are in optimal health.  It takes more than diet to improve our genetic expressions and unfortunately, not many people know that. To provide us with a better understanding of genetic expressions, our guest, Dr. Daniel Stickler will thoroughly explain how our body functions as a whole. Idealistic Thoughts When Dr. Daniel Stickler was going to medical school, he had this idea of what he thought medicine was about. Although he didn’t have a family member who was in medicine, he recalled that he looked forward to going to his pediatrician appointments. “I saw medicine as enhancing the human experience. When I got to medical school, I realized it was more about disease models and about the postponement of death than it was really about optimizing the experience itself,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. He adds, “I was disenchanted and found surgery to be a happy medium. I felt it allowed me to do what I enjoyed doing. But I wasn’t doing the standard of trying to postpone death.” Moving On A couple of years later, Dr. Daniel Stickler discovered a process called age management. He pursued some affiliations with a company called Synergenics at that time and realized there were some limitations to that as well. “It was more about enhancement using hormones, not quite the full extent of what I had envisioned. We developed our process with that over time and then added genetics to that,” Dr. Daniel Stickler said.  Changing The Game Eventually, Dr. Daniel Stickler and his team developed an entire program around systems-based precision lifestyle. But this time around, it was taking the human system as a whole. “The health care system and even health and wellness are not a fixable system. It’s great when you’re sick,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. “But for people who aren’t sick and even some people who are sick, they need a systems-based approach that is looking at their sleep, nutrition, movement, hormones, cognitive function, relationships, passions. Looking at all of that to bring the entire system into balance again.” He adds, “So what we did, we created from scratch a new human model of health and wellness. Even in functional medicine, there is an approach in functional medicine that is not quite holistic either.” Understanding The Human System To understand the concept of genetic expressions, you have to look at the human system as a whole is a complex system. Dr. Daniel Stickler says complex means that the outcomes based on inputs are highly variable. According to Dr. Daniel Stickler, medicine, health, and wellness have looked at the human model as a complicated system. And complicated systems have predictable outcomes. That’s why we have all these algorithms and medicine that we try to follow, but they don’t work at a lot of times. Useful Tools One primary tool that Dr. Daniel Stickler uses on his patients is coaching.  He says coaching helps people get healthy again. “We take as much biometrics as we possibly can. It’s a matter of bringing it all together. You start to see patterns of things. And those patterns help guide interventions in moving forward,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. Generally, Dr. Daniel Stickler does a two-day intake with clients. And in the 16 hours that he allows for patients, Dr. Daniel Stickler usually spends three to four hours with patients when they first arrive. He comes up with a personalized plan for them and guides them. But ultimately, his clients make the decisions. After the program, Dr. Daniel Stickler makes 30 to 40-minute coaching calls once a month. This next step involves taking the parameters, boosting lifestyle factors, supplementation, etc. “Enhancements are beyond lifestyle factors that can take that human state to a new level of function. People usually want anti-aging, or they want cognitive enhancement. Unfortunately, they like to bypass steps, so I tame them down,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. Understanding Genetics For you to better understand genetic expressions, you must first understand what genetics is. Dr. Daniel Stickler says our genetics is such an intelligent design of adaptation. There’s always some reason why a variant occurs more commonly or at a certain degree in the population. And as time goes on, they start finding these additional benefits for each one. “The only time we have an epigenetic trap is things like environmental exposures to BPA that can trip our epigenetics expression,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. “Environmental components are constantly manipulating our genetic expressions. We also don’t see changes in genetic code. What we see are changes in genetic expressions within that code.” Environmental Components Our environment also plays a big part in determining exactly how healthy we are. Dr. Daniel Stickler says a lot of the environmental chemicals are epigenetic traps. They cause a glitch, like a computer virus. “We see a lot of the hormonal aspects and a significant drop in testosterone levels in both males and females over time and environmental chemicals contribute to that,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. Recommended Diet Dr. Daniel Stickler advises that if you pick one diet that’s going to work best, it’s the traditional Mediterranean diet. Because it is primarily composed of fish, seafood, and a lot of vegetables. It also has a ton of olive oil which has a profound impact on the expression of our genes. “But don’t go over 10% in saturated fat. Eat food that is as natural as possible. We’re such a hodgepodge of different nationalities now,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. “And we don’t have that very strict lineage to trace back to what we have most optimized for. That’s why we can look at our genetics and other factors, so we get a suggestion of a dietary probability.” He adds, “Small doses of toxins are beneficial for you. It makes you stronger. So, I don’t try to avoid that completely. I also don’t like a diet that limits macronutrients in some way.”  Interpreting Data Dr. Daniel Stickler shares that he and his team train epigenetic coaches to interpret genetic data. They are also taught to understand the epigenetic piece on top of that and how to access it. He also says interpreting genetic data is a dynamic process. Ultimately, you have to test it and look at objective measures. Sleep And Stress Like every expert I have interviewed, Dr. Daniel Stickler says sleep is also an essential marker for health. On the other hand, stress on the body is something that you can perceive in a very favorable light. When we shift our diet, it’s a shock to the system. It’s massive stress on the body. So when you look at a biometric diet, you will see a drop in heart rate variability. “But what happens is, you get a cortisol release and that cortisol causes more of a euphoric feeling. So, when you shift into a dietary pattern, you get this misinterpretation that you’re feeling good because of the stress you induced in the body,” Dr. Daniel Stickler explains. To get good sleep, Dr. Daniel Stickler advises first to figure out what is happening. Look if there is something in your lifestyle that is not optimized. Some people have a natural tendency to wake up in the middle of the night. In the old days, people will go to sleep at sunset and wake up at 1 or 2 in the morning.  They’re usually up for an hour, and then they go back to sleep. Dr. Daniel Stickler works around those kinds of sleeping patterns because there’s a lot of variables you can look at. Meditation Apart from getting enough sleep, Dr. Daniel Stickler also stresses that learning to breathe the right way is also essential. According to him, it’s not a matter of how much your heartbeat changes between breaths. “It’s more of how long the interval between beats is between breaths. And it’s healthy to have a large dynamic between that,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. “A lot of this is the breathwork. It comes down to structuring the breath. We assess all our clients. we look at their breath structure, respiratory rate, and look at if breathing in the chest or belly.” Dr. Daniel Stickler laments that majority of people don’t know how to breathe. So, part of his program is reprogramming clients on their breathing. “They will be breathing in a baseline state, 16 to 20 breaths for minutes. That’s anxiety breathing. The healthy breath rate is 5 to 8 times a minute,” said Dr. Daniel Stickler. He adds, “Bottomline, we have the responsibility for our health and success. Because you have the full right to do what you want to do.”  Bio Dr. Daniel Stickler is a future-focused visionary and human potential, evolutionary thought leader. He is the co-founder & Chief Medical Officer of the Apeiron Center for Human Potential and Apeiron Academy. He also serves as Medical Director of Nuerohacker Collective.  Disheartened by our current “sick care” approach to health, Dr. Daniel Stickler created Human Potential Medicine; an integrated, bio-spherical systems approach that combines the scientific grounding and expertise of modern medicine, leading-edge genetic/epigenetic science and advanced neuro-psychophysiological modalities to synergistically expand human capacity. He also established the Apeiron Academy which offers advanced education to a tribe of like-minded individuals determined to shift the health & wellness paradigm from the current sick-care model to one of optimized human potential.  Dr. Daniel Stickler entered medical school with a vision of helping people create an optimized life and found very quickly that the training focused predominantly on treating the disease to postpone our stepwise progression to death. This realization was the catalyst for a several decades journey to create a new way of living. An opportunity for one promotes youthful longevity and the potential for limitless life.  His journey began as a general/vascular surgeon specializing in laparoscopic weight loss surgery. Striving for the best possible outcomes, he created a highly successful whole systems approach in collaboration with a skilled team of dietitians, health psychologists, and exercise physiologists. After ten years and nearly 3,000 operations, he concluded that the surgical approach was not an ideal option for long-term health and knew that lifestyle was the key to creating optimized health.  The quest to discover the ideal approach to optimizing human potential took him on a path through functional medicine, alternative care, holistic approaches, naturopathic, and age-management medicine. Each modality fell short of the outcome of a genuinely optimized human as most were still focused on the disease model and in fact, were not much different from the allopathic approach.  Continuing to search, an obsession with genetics and epigenetics was birthed. Following 10,000+ hours of research and several thousand client interactions, he correlates improved clinical outcomes by implementing lifestyle modifications to optimize genetic expressions. Finally, he has found the answer to precision programming for an optimized life: the DNA code, the blueprint design of all of life. This discovery has led to the clear knowledge that we truly can architect our evolution. Get Connected With Dr. Daniel Stickler!

280 Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer and the Corruption of Science, Monsanto, Pesticides, RoundUp, Organic, Society of Environmental Journalists, Carey Gillam, Ashley James, Learn True He

Carey's Site: careygillam.com & Book: https://amzn.to/2KmGKb7 The BEST way to absorb your Magnesium: https://livingthegoodlifenaturally.com Use Coupon Code LTH for 10% off! livingthegoodlifenaturally.com   Whitewash http://learntruehealth.com/whitewash Whitewash is a riveting book exposing the truth behind companies like Monsanto.  There have been a lot of studies showing how Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide is harmful to our health but Whitewash dives more in-depth into that.  Today’s episode is a treat because we have the author of Whitewash, Carey Gillam to talk about how this weed killer is affecting our industry, economy and most of all, our health. Early Passion Carey Gillam recalls that from such a young age, she wanted to be anything else other than being a journalist. She was 11 or 12 years old, when Watergate happened and learned a lot of thing from that event. As she grew older, All the President’s Men became her favorite movie and eventually found her passion in bringing forth information as a journalist. And she feels lucky to be doing that for over three decades now. “We travel to really interesting places, meet people and learn about really interesting things and tell everybody else. It’s not even a job but rather an adventure,” said Carey Gillam. Carey Gillam’s early years including covering real estate and the banking industry as well as sports and transportation. She also says there is a certain level of deception and secrecy that goes on behind the corporate veil and political circles. So, it’s not uncommon for journalists to be exposing things. Food And Agriculture Carey Gillam’s work over the past two decades focused on the big business of food and agriculture. She saw how dependent our modern system of farming has become on pesticide use. “Pesticides are tied to a wide range of disease and health problems. They are used so pervasively. I’ve become quite passionate about sharing my research with others,” said Carey Gillam. “So, they can make informed choices about the foods they eat and feed their families. It also includes the policies they support or oppose that pertain to food and agriculture.”  Investigating Monsanto In the 1990s, Reuters wanted Carey Gillam to move to Kansas City and start writing about food and agriculture. Monsanto was based in the Midwest and had just introduced genetically-engineered crops.  They were revolutionizing farming and agricultural practices. “At first, I was impressed. Monsanto welcomed me in. I saw the labs and talked to the scientists and got to visit some of their demonstration fields,” said Carey Gillam. “All they had out really then was herbicide tolerance. Which of course is not about the consumer but about encouraging the use of herbicide, primarily glyphosate.” Weed Killer To those who are unaware, glyphosate is the most widely used weed killer in the world. It’s what Monsanto uses in roundup. So, they developed genetically-engineered roundup-ready crops. The farmers would spray the crops directly with roundup, and that’s what genetically-engineering crops were all about in the 1990s. “So, this GMO did not turn out to be what the companies were saying it would be. And what they are saying now is not about feeding the world. It’s about selling chemicals,” said Carey Gillam. She adds, “Monsanto at one point wanted to engineer a roundup wheat. But farmers didn’t want to spray wheat with herbicide. It was a big battle for many years. It’s all about profit for a big handful of corporations.” Study Results Carey Gillam reveals that there are many scientists, researchers, medical professionals who do believe and are very concerned with what is currently happening. We went from forty million pounds of glyphosate use in the 1990s every year to about three hundred million pounds a year now. It is sprayed not only on these GMO crops, but the companies have encouraged to spray it on things like wheat. Researchers have found it predominantly in flour. It is also used in orange groves and vineyards. “We have allowed ourselves to be doused in pesticides and to be set up in a pesticide-dependent food production system. It’s not just glyphosate. Many other harmful pesticides are being used widely in our food system,” said Carey Gillam. She adds, “These pesticides are tied to a whole array of diseases and human health problems. Other health issues include kidney disease, thyroid and reproductive issues, birth defects, lower birth rate babies, neurodevelopmental problems in children, ADHD, and autism.” Carey Gillam also says the science varies. Some are certain, and some are less certain. She believes people from different sides can point to various research studies to support their views. But there’s a reason for concern. “Insecticide use has fallen. A lot of that doesn’t account for the fact that we are now putting insecticide directly on the seeds rather than spraying on the crops,” said Carey Gillam. “Another thing that is not accounted for is that genetic engineering is having crops create their toxins, their insecticides so that the crop itself becomes the toxin.” Covering Issues Carey Gillam’s primary mission is to balance out the conversation, the level of education and information so people can make informed decisions. This way, public policy can be truly protective of public health. That’s what she’s hoping that comes out of her book Whitewash. “I’ve been very cautious in covering this industry. Untruths don’t serve anybody well. When I went to testify before the European Parliament, they asked me to come and speak at the fall of 2017 about these matters,” said Carey Gillam. She adds, “They were looking at re-licensing glyphosate. There have been decades of deception around this particular chemical. It’s perpetrated by a handful of companies, notably Monsanto and that’s documented.”  Taking Control The EPA was only formed in the 1970s and has a backlog of regulatory reviews. Carey Gilliam shares that in the United States, we have the mindset that until you prove that it’s dangerous, it pretty much can go out to the marketplace. To avoid unhealthy products, Carey Gillam buys a lot of organic food. But there are times when she buys food products that aren’t organic. “It comes down to personal choice and situation. On the other hand, pesticides, synthetic pesticides, chemicals are regulated through the EPA and the office of pesticide programs. USDA can get involved for things that are incorporated into the plant itself,” explains Carey Gillam. “Scientists have been trying to raise the alarm bell in the last few years. But we lost our balance. We need to pay attention to what these chemicals do to our environment and our health,” said Carey Gillam. “And that’s what led to the formation of the EPA. There was a sense of trying to balance the scales. I believe that we lost that sense of balance. And we desperately need to regain it.” Do The Research According to Carey Gillam, glyphosate was synthesized and discovered many years ago by pharmaceutical interests. Glyphosate and roundup did make farming easier for farmers when it first came out. And that’s why farmers loved the system. “But the greatest thing ever doesn’t always last.  And Mother Nature adapts. The more pesticides in your food and water, the more you want to be more concerned about it. And That’s something more scientists are writing about.” Carey Gillam also stresses that when people educate themselves a little bit, every little information is power. If people care and they get the facts, and they present those facts to others, it can ultimately be meaningful. Research isn’t done by one person or one group. Carey Gillam says it’s done by independent scientists and corporate scientists all around the world. And there are new studies that come out every year. “The one-stop shop is this International Agency for Research on Cancer. But of course, the chemical industry works hard to try to discredit this agency. They pushed our lawmakers after they called glyphosate a carcinogen, to strip funding from this cancer science agency,” said Carey Gillam. She adds, “And if you are concerned about your food and ingredients, reach out to your elected officials and tip companies. Get in touch with food manufacturers. Because it makes a difference.”  Bio Carey Gillam is a veteran journalist, researcher, and writer with 25 years of news industry experience focused on digging into the big business of food and agriculture.  As a former senior correspondent for Reuters’ international news service, and current research director for U.S. Right to Know, Carey Gillam has uncovered biotech, agrochemical, and pesticide industry secrets that impact the health and safety of millions of people worldwide.  Carey Gillam’s latest book, which has not made Monsanto happy, is Whitewash – The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer and the Corruption of Science. You’ll be shocked and empowered when you find out what Carey Gillam has uncovered and details in her Whitewash book.  Carey Gillam is a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists and North American Agricultural Journalists. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from the University of Kansas. Get Connected With Carey Gillam!

And more often than not, we either get too addicted to drugs or our digestive problem doesn’t go away at all.  Well, I’ve got great news! Apparently, we can solve our digestive upset and even reverse gut issues with food and my guest, Dr. Norm Robillard, Ph.D. will teach us how. Personal Experience Dr. Norm Robillard has his own story with chronic acid reflux. Through his personal experience, he realized there were some connections between acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome. “There’s a study that showed pretty conclusively that people with IBS have something going on with too many bacteria in the small intestine, possibly even excessive fermentation,” shares Dr. Norm Robillard. “I spent most of my career in biotech. But at that time, I was suffering from chronic acid reflux. I had a minimal idea of what it was and what caused it. Plus, I also had no idea if it had a connection to diet.” Then in 2004, something accidentally happened to Dr. Norm Robillard. Through the influence of his son who was an athletic trainer, Dr. Norm Robillard went on a low carbohydrates diet. He was amazed that his acid reflux went away! Deeper Research When Dr. Norm Robillard’s acid reflux went away just by changing his diet, he started reading about it and discovered that carbohydrates somehow cause heartburn and acid reflux. “I studied how the three food groups are digested—fats, proteins and carbs. Bacteria love carbohydrates,” Dr. Norm Robillard said. “They prefer carbohydrates as a food source, and they produce a lot of gas. It is also well-known that people with GERD have more pressure in the stomach.” But Dr. Norm Robillard says the good thing is, it opens up new treatment options. There are ways of controlling the reflux itself while keeping stomach acid in good health. He further explains that it’s called acid reflux because essentially, what’s in your stomach is refluxing into your esophagus. If it happens a lot, then it’s a chronic condition. Heartburn, on the other hand, is one of the significant symptoms of reflux. “So that’s how I got into it. I couldn’t work in drugs anymore and work on creating diet strategies, behavioral and cause analysis,” said Dr. Norm Robillard. The Right Diet Dr. Norm Robillard admits that a plant-based diet is challenging because of a lot of highly fermentable materials. Legumes and certain starches, for example, are very fermentable and will cause bloating and belching. Add on to that; there are harder to digest carbohydrates and people who are lactose-intolerant usually have a hard time. Fiber can also be an issue as well as sugar alcohols because they cause G.I. distress. Another is resistant starch which behaves like dietary fiber. “Bottomline, as you increase this load, you have a higher chance of having symptoms. But also, if your digestion is out of whack, you don’t digest carbs as well,” Dr. Norm Robillard explains. “There’s a whole variety of things that can affect how well your small intestines work.  Even drugs. On top of that, if you have consumed more than you are capable of digesting, that can cause symptoms as well.”  Fast Tract Digestion Dr. Norm Robillard has gathered all the information he learned from the past 14 years and compiled it in a book called the Fast Tract Digestion. Aside from acid reflux, the book also touches on heartburn and IBS. “It focuses on three areas. First, it talks about the food. The other part is identifying and addressing all of these underlying causes that can make SIBO and excessive fermentation worse,” said Dr. Norm Robillard. He adds, “Third is the behaviors and practices to minimize malabsorption and optimizing digestion. Like eating slowly and chewing well to give more time to digest the starch. How you select, prepare, store and consume food is important as well.” Understanding Your Digestive System Dr. Norm Robillard firmly declares that having stomach acid is bad for your digestion. You won’t absorb vitamins properly. That ends up affecting your bones, nerves and cardiovascular health. “I give my patients some notes on what I think, and a regimen on how to wean off of medication. Then I tell them to take the notes to their doctor and have a discussion. Because long-term, getting off acid-reducing medicines is part of the solution,” said Dr. Norm Robillard. How Our Bile Works Bile salts are produced in the liver, and Dr. Norm Robillard says those salts are collected in the gallbladder. From there, they are squirted into the small intestine especially when we eat fatty meals. “They help the fat mix with the water so that lipase can digest better. They can be broken down and absorbed. Bile is also anti-microbial. It helps keep some of the bad bacteria at bay from getting into your small intestine,” Dr. Norm Robillard explains. He adds, “Bile is made from cholesterol. Your body makes it every single time for every round of digestion. Bile is recycled back to the liver and re-processed so they can be released again. Lipase which digests fat, on the other hand, is produced from the pancreas, released down the pancreatic duct and mixes with the bile along the way.” Why Stomach Acid Is Good For You Dr. Norm Robillard reveals that a lot of people think that when they have acid reflux or GERD, they think they don’t have enough stomach acid. And they act on it. Some people are even able to find some interventions to help them. Dr. Norm Robillard further explains that if you want to look at a population of people that don’t have enough stomach acid, you want to look at people with something called atrophic gastritis. People with no stomach acid have a 50% lower risk of something called esophagitis. And low stomach acid isn’t enough for one to have GERD. “Studies show that 80% of kids with asthma have chronic acid reflux. The drug companies thought it was great. There’s a study showing Nexium does not help asthma. So, the conclusion was that GERD does not cause asthma,” shares Dr. Norm Robillard. He adds, “That is so wrong. Because you’re not stopping the bile, you’re not stopping the bacteria or enzymes. We need to stop the reflux, and we can do that with diet. Some physical or mechanical issues are really beyond the scope of the Fast Tract diet, and it’s really about identifying underlying causes and figuring out the solution.”  Fast Tract Diet App To help you track the recommended foods to eat, Dr. Norm Robillard developed an app called the Fast Tract Diet.  The app contains a list of 800 different foods and will increase to 1,000 foods when it launches soon. There’s a voice recognition feature, and it can also be easily added to your specific meal plan. To help your meal tracking, there are points for each food. According to Dr. Norm Robillard, the formula was derived from an equation that he developed based on the glycemic index. The glycemic index measured how quickly carbohydrates from any food enter the bloodstream relative to glucose which is easy to absorb. Meal Plan Dr. Norm Robillard’s app sounds fantastic because the meal plan can be customized. It can be anything from lamb, fish, eggs, and bacon. He also advises being cautious if you are going to have starches. Bread types also vary, but a French baguette is a good option. As for fruits, cantaloupes and strawberries are good choices. But make sure not to consume a whole ton of fruit or starch or a big bowl of cereal or oatmeal.  This is because Dr. Norm Robillard explains there’s a lot of fermented material in it. For snacks, opt for celery or cream cheese, rice crackers or aged cheese. Because all the carbohydrates are already fermented before you eat it. And Dr. Norm Robillard says anything animal-based is 0 points unless it has added carbs. “There is no limit on animal-based foods, fats, and protein. The only limitations are some carb-based foods. And moderate your intake of onions. Most of all, eat slowly and chew well,” advises Dr. Norm Robillard. Five Carbohydrates Dr. Norm Robillard reveals some studies showed that reducing or eliminating fiber was highly effective in addressing constipation. In fact, there was a study by Dr. John Hunter in the UK in 2004. Dr. John Hunter found that a no-fiber diet was as useful for treating IBS. Limiting fiber is part of putting your gut microbes on a diet. And the other four—lactose, fructose, resistant starch, and sugar alcohols can jack up your digestive tract. “In a nutshell, we are changing the way the world perceived digestive health.

278 Healing The Body With Food, The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss: A Revolutionary Approach to Conquer Cravings, Overcome Food Addiction and Lose Weight Without Going Hungry, Cancer, Diabetes, Eatin

Chef AJ's site: EatUnprocessed.com Chef AJ's Books: The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss: A Revolutionary Approach to Conquer Cravings, Overcome Food Addiction and Lose Weight Without Going Hungry https://amzn.to/2uSuIS1 Unprocessed: How to Achieve Vibrant Health and Your Ideal Weight https://amzn.to/2JZaGtX   Food Addiction http://learntruehealth.com/food-addiction-2/ A lot of us are guilty of food addiction. We usually either think it’s hard to do or ineffective for achieving weight loss or gaining your health back. But that’s not true.  That’s why I’m so excited to have Chef AJ who’ll teach us some tips and tricks in kicking our food addiction forever. Childhood Years Chef AJ’s eating habits during childhood were the standard Jewish diet. It was high in fat and animal protein. In a way, she describes her environment as belonging to a family of emotional eaters surrounded by food.  As a result, her family members suffered from all sorts of diseases. ” Born in 1960, I became fat at the age of 5. One of every three children under the age of 18 is overweight. It’s never fun being overweight especially as a child,” recalls Chef AJ. “Because it led me to do what I do now. I don’t want people to have to go through the pain shame and humiliation.” Chef AJ had two older brothers who told her back then that guys are not going to date fat girls. And they were right. Because during her senior prom, Chef AJ didn’t have a date. So, thinking about her childhood, it makes Chef AJ sad. Growing Up Years Chef AJ’s family moved back to California from Chicago when she was 11 years old. She was not even 5 feet tall and yet she weighed 160 pounds. That is childhood obesity.  When Chef AJ was in her 20s, she weighed up to 200 pounds. Nobody was offering any suggestions. It took an offhand remark from an uncle who happened to be a doctor for Chef AJ to want to change. Her uncle told Chef AJ she could probably go a week without eating and it wouldn’t hurt her one bit. So, Chef AJ tried not to eat, and she indeed lost weight. But in the next seven years, Chef AJ became anorexic. Putting her health at risk, Chef AJ developed liver damage, then her fingernails and hair fell out. “Anorexia is not sustainable. I don’t recommend it for weight loss or dietary control. Because eventually, you get so hungry,” said Chef AJ. “When you haven’t eaten very much for many years, you end up becoming bulimic like me.”  She adds, “It’s worse in some ways. Because with bulimia, you have the energy to do things. You’re eating, but you’re eating a lot. And getting rid of food by exercising or in my case smoking and purging. I remember getting depressed and even thought of suicide in my 20s.” Chef AJ also recalls that back then, they treat bulimia like a mental disease and lock you up in a psychiatric hospital. The funny thing was, for most of that time, Chef AJ was vegan. She became a vegan at a very young age for ethical reasons at age 17 when she attended the University of Pennsylvania. But Chef AJ was what she calls herself a “fat” vegan. Because she didn’t eat many of the healthy foods that she eats today. She had her food addiction — candies, cakes, cookies and ice cream. Plus, a lot of caffeine and sugar.  Effort To Change By the age of 43 and had eaten almost no fruits and vegetables her entire life, Chef AJ soon found had what books call a pre-cancer stage. It wasn’t until Chef AJ was in her early 40s that she learned food had something to do with how we look, feel or what diseases she could get or reverse. “I always thought it was genetic. Genetics are important to a certain extent. But it’s our diet and lifestyle that pulls the trigger,” said Chef AJ. Optimum Health Insitute It wasn’t long before Chef AJ found this magazine featuring a place near San Diego, California called the Optimum Health Institute. Chef AJ first went there on July 6, 2003, and found that although there were no medical doctors, there were chiropractors, nurses, and health professionals. That was also the first time she ever had a conversation on food and how it affects us. Chef AJ stuck to her prescribed diet for two years. Six months after, she went back to her old doctor who asked Chef AJ if she went to surgery because her colon was now clean. That’s where Chef AJ’s life changed. After The Program After going through her program at the Optimum Health Institute, Chef AJ realized she wasn’t going to be able to stay on this diet unless the food started tasting a lot better. Generally, she believes people can do anything short-term. And the way they teach eating at Optimum is more for healing and detox. There may be people who eat that way long-term, but it’s mostly salad without dressing plus fruit and juices. That’s why Chef AJ enrolled in culinary school and signed up for an intensive 30-day program. But the cooking school they used a lot of sugar, salt, and oil even on raw foods.  So, Chef AJ was on the brink of going back to her old habits. Despite that, it was a great learning experience because Chef AJ learned kitchen confidence. Soon after, she became a professional chef for five years. “I wasn’t consuming caffeine, white sugar or flour so I was doing a lot better. Then I soon got a job as a pastry chef,” Chef AJ said. “Then in 2008, I took a 1-year program called the wisdom course.” The Wisdom course was a lot about play and fun. It was a creative course where Chef AJ was given weekly homework. “So, I decided to go on a diet for a few weeks to change my palate. Filling the ref with fruits and veggies, I initially felt irritable, anxious, shaky, sad in a way. But that was when I became aware that foods for some people have effects,” said Chef AJ. Creating Recipes To help people overcome food addiction and jumpstart their weight loss journey, Chef AJ created some recipes and had some friends sample it.  Her friends found it delicious and encouraged her to share her recipes with people who need help in gaining their health back. One memorable person who greatly benefited from her recipes is former actor Don Grady.  He passed away from bone cancer, but before that, Chef AJ was instrumental in extending his life by five years just by incorporating her recipes into his diet.  Chef AJ’s Books Chef AJ’s road to better health and kicking out food addiction let her write her book called Unprocessed. According to her, processed food is not food. It may be readily available, socially acceptable, easily affordable but it’s not food. She also explains that especially for kids, children have different sensitivities. Chef AJ cites people in prisons, schools, hospitals are fed the worse possible food. She says even the United States Armed forces. “The people that could benefit the most from eating the best nutrition are getting the worse nutrition,” said Chef AJ. Chef AJ’s newest book is called The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss. It’s a new approach to teach you how to overcome food cravings and food addiction aside from losing weight without starving yourself. TV Show Chef AJ hosted a TV show called Healthy Living with Chef AJ which aired on Foody TV. It was a cooking show and a lifestyle show as well because she interviewed some cool people who gave valuable information about food. She’s currently working on the funding to air it for another season hopefully. Food Tips Chef AJ says that people are going to have to learn some basic cooking techniques if they want to be successful or get somebody else to do it for them. But it doesn’t mean you have to go to culinary school. One has to be willing to devote a few hours every week to do some batch cooking. “I have videos on Youtube showing people how to do this. Because if you always have healthy food ready, then it’s not hard to assemble a healthy meal especially if you want to eat more simply,” assures Chef AJ. One of Chef AJ’s favorite quick fix is getting some Japanese sweet potatoes, cut it in half, put some blueberries, fresh mint and fruit flavored balsamic vinegar on top. Other quick fixes can be anything from whole grains, quinoa or beans. She also advises to let children choose their vegetables. Because generally, people love customizing. Another excellent food resource is the products of the Healing Movement. Their products are raw cultured vegetables, which has the richest probiotics in the market. Plus, it’s dairy-free. “It can take a while for food that is less stimulating to taste good. Salt is the hardest. It takes a good 30 days to get through,” said Chef AJ.  She adds, “As for oil, people don’t miss the oil. They may miss the fat. So I recommend the whole food fat over oil. But sugar is a whole another story. If you suffer from food addiction, that might be something you want to cut out no matter what your dietary pattern is.” Kitchen Tools One tool Chef AJ loves in making her food is a pressure cooker. But other tools really can help you get healthy food on the table fast. “There’s nothing magical about oil unless you deep fry. You need a good pan and learn to dry saute, or steam fry the food. You can also add a teaspoon of water or broth,” said Chef AJ. “It does not make the food taste better. Oil coats the food, so you end up having to use more salt.” Clean Environment Chef AJ stresses the importance of cleaning up your environment. Because whatever health, lifestyle or behavioral change you’re trying to make, you have to have your environment support you. “Your environment either supports your food addiction or supports your recovery. It can’t be both,” Chef AJ said. “Your environment is going to be critical to your success, especially your home environment. So control your home environment because it will make a critical difference.” Signs Of Food Addiction Are you now wondering if you have a food addiction? Chef AJ recommends that you ask yourself these questions, which is a quiz in her book: Do you have to consume it daily or several times a day? Do you feel bad when you are unable to get your fix? Do you think about it often and can’t wait until you can consume it again even if you just had it? Is it difficult for you to moderate your use of it? Do you tend to use more of it than you intended to? Do you often feel shamed or regret after consuming it? Do you have physical or emotional withdrawal symptoms when you try to abstain from it? Is it difficult for you to get through even a single day without consuming this substance? Does abstaining result in emotional or physical discomfort? Does the mere thought of abstaining from it bring on strong emotions, like anxiety, sadness, anger or grief? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, Chef AJ says you may indeed be suffering from food addiction. “I want people to know this is a difficult journey. But it is possible and doable. Eventually, they will learn actually to prefer the taste of whole natural food. Any which way they get there, it is possible. It just takes time,” said Chef AJ.  Bio Chef AJ has been devoted to a plant-based diet for almost 40 years. She is the host of the television series Healthy Living with CHEF AJ which airs on Foody TV. With her comedy background, she has made appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman and more.  A chef, culinary instructor and professional speaker, Chef AJ is the author of the popular book Unprocessed: How to Achieve Vibrant Health and Your Ideal Weight, which chronicles her journey from a junk-food vegan faced with a diagnosis of pre-cancerous polyps, to learning how to create foods that nourish and heal the body.  Chef AJ’s new book The Secrets to Ultimate Weight Loss: A Revolutionary Approach to Conquer Cravings, Overcome Food Addiction and Lose Weight Without Going Hungry has received glowing endorsement by many luminaries in the plant-based movement.  Based in Los Angeles, Chef AJ teaches a monthly sold-out seminar featuring cooking instruction, nutritional science, and song parodies, all delivered with comedic panache. Never content to leave her audience with mere “just do it” advice, she teaches how to create meals to transform their health, how to deal with cravings and food addiction and addresses the emotional side of eating.  Chef AJ is the creator of the Ultimate Weight Loss Program, which has helped hundreds of people achieve the health and the body that they deserve. She was the Executive Pastry Chef at Santé Restaurant in Los Angeles where she was famous for her sugar, oil, salt and gluten-free desserts which use the fruit, the whole fruit and nothing but the whole fruit.  Chef AJ is also the creator of Healthy Taste of LA and the YouTube cooking show The Chef and the Dietitian and is proud to say that her IQ is higher than her cholesterol.

277 FISH: Healing Superfood or Unsafe to Eat? Omega 3, EFAs, Wild-Caught vs Farmed Fish, Sustainability, Radiation, Fukushima, Prevent Disease, Increase IQ in Kids, Healthy Pregnancy, Essential Fatty

Salmon for one, is a favorite preference apart from tuna or halibut. But according to my guest, Randy Hartnell, not all salmon are the same. To educate us further on this topic, he explains the difference between wild salmon and farm salmon in this episode. Discovering Fishing Randy Hartnell discovered a love for fishing during his college years while he was earning a degree in English at the University of California in Berkley. Taking on a summer job, it led him to discover fishing in Alaska.  Randy Hartnell fell in love with commercial fishing and continued after graduating from college. He bought boats, hired a crew and dived into commercial fishing for 20 years in Alaska. Every spring and summer was devoted to catching herring and salmon. “It was a great lifestyle. I would have still been doing it except for the rise of industrial farm salmon in the world market,” said Randy Hartnell. “In the late 90s, farm salmon exploded despite the nutritional and environmental disadvantages. At that time few consumers knew the difference.” He adds, “What grocery stores and chefs understood was that farm salmon was now available 24/7, it was cheap and consistent. So, in a couple of years, the price collapsed. That’s why I had to figure out something else to do.” Vital Choice Randy Hartnell had a friend call him one day. Together they discussed the factors surrounding the demand for either wild salmon or farm salmon. And because people loved wild salmon, it was an excellent opportunity to make wild salmon more available to consumers. Randy Hartnell initially hired friends and family members.  He launched the company in 2002 and had grown every year since then. One of the favorite things the company offers is their Vital Box subs program, containing the company’s greatest hits. It includes the most popular Vital Choice products that consumers can customize. “We enjoy educating people that fish is yummy and easy to prepare and healthy, too. Always go for quality,” Randy Hartnell advises. “Those healthy omega three fats in the fish is unstable. It is prone to oxidation. That’s one reason why chefs prefer farm salmon. Because wild salmon goes bad quickly.”  Looming Problems According to Randy Hartnell, the most significant problems fall into two categories. One is environmental, particularly the impact of the farm salmon on the local ecosystem. Everything you’re putting into those cages to feed those fish, a lot of that ends up in the surrounding environment. That in turn, can have a profound impact on the local species. To get the bigger picture, Randy Hartnell says that salmon farming first started in Norway. The farms there have devastated the wild salmon stocks. In fact, Randy Hartnell talked to a scientist there a few years ago. And that scientist said that British Columbia is insane to put salmon farms along wild salmon migration routes. You see, Randy Hartnell reveals that in British Columbia, fisheries placed hundreds of farm salmon pans along the migration routes of five different species of wild Pacific salmon. And this scenario attracts diseases and parasites. “The solution is to move those pens onto land and do closed containment tanks. But the problem is you don’t have mother nature subsidizing your processing of sewage, pumping, and water. That’s why farm salmon that is raised sustainably is more expensive. So, unfortunately, there is not much market for it,” shares Randy Hartnell. Randy Hartnell says the other issue is the nutritional side. Some are fed wild fish which are turned into pellets and fed to farm salmon. The problem is, the fish might end up having trace levels of contaminants. “Plus, when you start feeding these farm salmons a lot of grains, you have way more omega 6 to omega 3. Wild salmon has more omega three compared to omega 6,” said Randy Hartnell. Randy Hartnell also shares that now there is a big mining consortium, that is trying to build a massive open-pit mine right at the headwater. It’s called the Pebble Mine Project, and many are stopping it.  “There are always going to be bad actors out there. And the best way to put them out of business is to educate consumers to look for and choose sustainably sourced alternatives,” said Randy Hartnell. Alaska’s Solution Randy Hartnell fished in Alaska for 20 years.  He shares that based on the state constitution, it states that fisheries will be managed on a sustainable basis. This means a scientist manages every river that has fish coming up to it. His primary goal is to make sure that every season there is a sustainable yield basis. It’s monitoring the passage of fish into the river and making sure there is harvestable surplus. Alaska’s “fish cops” primarily protect the habitat. There are no big tourism establishments, logging or dams to destroy the natural environment.  In fact, they are currently expecting fifty to sixty million salmon are coming back to spawn. Reputable Organizations Randy Hartnell reveals that consumers are now demanding sustainable seafood. To date, there are 30 NGOs now focusing on ocean sustainability and fisheries around the world. There’s still a lot of work to do. To those who aren’t aware, a fishery is primarily a defined by its region, the fishing method it uses and the type of fish it catches. Generally, most of the seafood and salmon in the United States come from Alaska because it is sustainable. Randy Hartnell says the gold standard of organizations is called the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) where he is a member. They are rigorous in evaluating fisheries especially since over 130 species rely on wild salmon throughout their lives, from bacteria to killer whales. It takes thorough scrutiny before one company gets that coveted MSC logo on their packaged products.  And Randy Hartnell says the nutrition packages that those fish represent is some of the healthiest food on the planet, not to mention sustainable, too. Benefits of Wild Salmon According to Randy Hartnell, wild salmon and seafood in general, is one of the last wild, natural organic foods that we have on the planet. They are just about the most nutrient-dense food you can find. And they have way more than the RDI of many of our essential amino acids or healthy fats. “We all need omega 3 and omega 6 in our diet. They are precursors to all kinds of different hormones that allow ourselves to communicate with one another,” said Randy Hartnell. “So, when you have an imbalance of these two types, it causes a lot of problems like chronic diseases.”  Seafood Prescription Randy Hartnell has an upcoming book coming up, called the Seafood Prescription.  It explains the nutrients in seafood and how it addresses so many needs that we have on a biochemical level. “The fatter the fish, the more omega three it has. Alaskan king salmon or British Columbia king salmon are going to have the most, approximately two grams on a six-ounce portion,” Randy Hartnell said. “Don’t worry too much about the number. Just incorporate more fish into your diet. It’s not about getting the omega three but rather also about restricting the omega 6.” He narrates that his wife had chronic allergies, skin issues, and inflammatory eye condition before. When he started this company, Randy Hartnell met Dr. William Lands, who was a pioneer in this field and discovered a lot of this biochemistry. After being educated about fish, the omega 6 factor and how prevalent it is, Randy Hartnell and his wife started cutting out omega 6.  It wasn’t long before his wife was cured of her health problems and Randy Hartnell’s family history of eczema and psoriasis was cured as well. Fresh Vs. Frozen Randy Hartnell says that most people will say fresh is superior to frozen. But there was a study before regarding this. From the study, 80% wanted fresh, not frozen fish. Both kinds were cooked side by side, and in the end, the frozen fish tasted better. “Currently, there’s also a tool to measure cellular damage from freezing and quality degradation,” shares Randy Hartnell. “Freezing is like nature’s preservative. You protect those unstable oils from the air and protect them from oxidation. It will taste like it just came out of the water as long as it is frozen properly.” Canned Fish The commonly canned fishes are tuna and salmon. But Randy Hartnell says many are poorly canned because some companies pack lower quality fish into the can. As a result, Randy Hartnell makes sure partner with a company that puts the best fish in the can. Vital Choices Products Randy Hartnell assures that his company only buys domestically processed seafood in Alaska or Washington. It costs more, but it’s an excellent avenue to support jobs. Some other excellent Vital Choices products worth trying are their burgers and sausages. It took quite a while to develop their wild salmon sausages that come in three delicious flavors. Randy Hartnell also believes that a healthy mom delivers healthy babies. That’s why Vital Choice also has a healthy diet option that caters to pregnant women. In fact, Randy Hartnell shares that there was a study conducted over a span of twenty to thirty years involving 14,000 moms and kids. “The study looked into the impact on fish consumption and impact on neurological health on children. It also identified that the risks of not eating fish are much greater than those with trace levels of mercury.” Out of Balance There are many success stories of people who made the switch to incorporating more fish or fish oil products into their diet. Randy Hartnell says there was one case wherein a patient had omega three therapy. It involved intravenous fish oil to repair the brain which worked. Randy Hartnell also had a personal experience with omega three therapy when his daughter was hospitalized for bacterial meningitis, severe, and brain swelling. It benefited his daughter as well, and the recovery was faster. To further get some additional resource, do check out Randy Hartnell’s Out of Balance video on his website, where he interviews five well-known authorities talking about the importance of balancing omega 3. Randy Hartnell’s website is a wealth of information and even has an online store.  As a bonus, he’s giving all you listeners a 10% discount so be sure to type in LTH2018 for the coupon code upon checkout.  Bio Randy Hartnell is the president of Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics, the leading online seafood company he and wife Carla founded in 2001.

276 Cooking For Hormone Balance, Thyroid, Graves' Disease, Hashimoto's, Adrenal Fatigue, PCOS, Estrogen Dominance, Fertility, Healing Digestion, Holistic Nutrition Coach Magdalena Wszelaki, Ashley Jam

Book:COOKING FOR HORMONE BALANCE: https://amzn.to/2ux1JTB hormonesbalance.com   Balancing Hormones http://learntruehealth.com/balancing-hormones   Balancing Hormones For Optimal Health Balancing hormones is an essential component to boost one’s energy and mood.  It can also lower inflammation and gain strength. Balancing hormones can also help you restore healthy weight.  But most people fail to realize this because balancing hormones seem complicated but it’s not. And my guest, Magdalena Wszelaki who’s a Holistic Nutrition Coach tells us why. Looking Back Magdalena Wszelaki believes her condition traces back to the time when her mother was continued smoking during pregnancy. Magdalena Wszelaki was not breastfed because she was born in an era when formula milk became popular. The first month she was born, Magdalena Wszelaki had pneumonia and had to undergo frequent ear drainage as a child.  Eventually, she learned that she was sensitive to foods with gluten, dairy, and eggs.  In other words, her digestive system was messed up. It became worse in her 20s when Magdalena Wszelaki’s food sensitivities were manifesting in another way, which was through horrible acne. It was also because of stress from her career, smoking, no food control and relying on alcohol. Diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Magdalena Wszelaki’s life made a significant turn in her late 30s.  She was 36 years years old in 2008 when she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and living in Shanghai. That time, there wasn’t any information on the internet, and no doctor could explain what autoimmune disease is. Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system stops. It makes you feel sluggish, have brain fog, lose hair and feeling fatigued all the time. It also causes depression and anxiety. “My body gave in one day, that’s when I was diagnosed in Shanghai. It doesn’t just happen because it’s years of stuff that we do consciously or unconsciously to ourselves. But eventually, the body speaks up and says it has had enough,” shares Magdalena Wszelaki.  Changing Her Life In 2009, Magdalena Wszelaki went to nutrition school. She changed things around for herself and helped dozens of women along the way. She eventually learned about the importance of balancing hormones and all of that has been a big inspiration when she put together her protocol cookbook. “As a 45-year-old today, I feel good. My Hashimoto’s is in remission. I had things with estrogen dominance, and I had all the genes for being a bad estrogen detoxifier,” Magdalena Wszelaki said. “That means I’m much more prone to developing estrogenic problems such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and many more.” Magdalena Wszelaki could develop lumpy breasts if she didn’t take good care of herself. And because her body responds quickly, she makes it a point to take care of her adrenals. Health Coaching Magdalena Wszelaki dabbled in health coaching during the first six years in private practice. Now, she offers online educational programs, online cooking programs, and kitchen detox programs to help more people. “The thing with private coaching is that it costs money to work one on one with someone. So, we refer out people to practitioners that I truly believe in,” said Magdalena Wszelaki. Estrogen Dominance Estrogen dominance is when a woman has a deficient, normal or excessive estrogen. But there is nothing to balance the effects on her body because there is a little or no progesterone present. “It’s one of the reasons why we have thyroid problems. We have thyroid issues when we fail to converge a T4 hormone which the thyroid produces and convert it to T3,” explains Magdalena Wszelaki. “T3 is the working horse. That’s what gives you beautiful hair, healthy weight, good mental functions, and energy.”  Common Symptoms Some common symptoms of estrogen dominance are PMS, irregular periods, cellulite, fibroids, miscarriages, breast cancers and thyroid cancers. Magdalena Wszelaki says the prostate problem in men is also due to estrogen dominance. “In estrogen dominance, it’s just the way you are breaking down those estrogens is not in the most beneficial way,” said Magdalena Wszelaki. “It is also due to low progesterone. And it also applies especially for women who have periods for 20 days, spotting, and unable to hold on to pregnancy for more than three months.” Magdalena Wszelaki also says that balancing hormones is also needed for women with PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome, as well as women who tend to store a lot of fat around their belly. And what happens when we have high testosterone levels. “This is a metabolic, hormonal imbalance because that happens when we have high blood sugar levels. Blood sugar control is the first step in managing that body shape or hormonal imbalance,” says Magdalena Wszelaki. Birth Control Pills Magdalena Wszelaki also cautions women against the use of birth control bills. Because basically, the glands need fuel to function. And vitamins and minerals are food for the glands. “Birth control pills mess around with your natural cycle of producing hormones. Your glands get signals,” Magdalena Wszelaki said. “A lot of women who are on birth control pills for a long time are not able to conceive. But when they get off it, glands are producing their hormones.” She adds. “So, if you are reacting badly to birth control pills, it’s an early sign of estrogen dominance. Or you are just not breaking down estrogen and progesterone because they are both synthetic.” Ways of Balancing Hormones According to Magdalena Wszelaki, hormones are connected with each other. And diet plays a significant role in balancing hormones. Clean up your digestion first.  Because apparently, we usually don’t even need to use bioidentical hormones. “When you have high-stress levels, cortisol robs you of progesterone. It can result in anxiety and poor sleep. So, have herbs often, supplements sometimes, and bioidentical hormones only when needed,” Magdalena Wszelaki advises. Furthermore, she also reveals that you can manage hot flashes and night sweats via blood sugar control. Magdalena Wszelaki also says to be wary of face creams because most products contain toxic chemicals that can havoc thyroid and cause infertility. Recommended Foods There are a lot of food choices that help in balancing hormones. Magdalena Wszelaki says that one way is changing your breakfast and be conscious with gluten and dairy. Some of the food Magdalena Wszelaki recommends are pomegranate, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.  She has a wonderful article about seed rotation on her website, explaining how and why you should switch eating different types of seeds. So, I highly recommend to check it out on her website. “Other things like cabbage, cilantro, parsley, cinnamon, and bone broth are good. But some people cannot eat raw cabbage. So lightly steam it, and you still get a lot of benefits,” advises Magdalena Wszelaki. “A lot of probiotic-rich foods can cause people with IBS a lot of bloating. It is also beneficial to eat food that is in season.” I particularly like cabbage which heals the gut and bone broth.  A veggie dip tastes delicious with purple cabbage cut into squares to substitute crackers. For bone broth, select only premium ingredients to get the maximum health benefits and whip up a large batch which you can chill and reheat through the week.  Farmer’s Wife Breakfast Since Magdalena Wszelaki mentioned earlier that changing your breakfast can help balance hormones, she high recommends her Farmer’s Wife Breakfast, which is packed with protein, fiber, and fat. You take fresh leafy greens, steam or eat them raw. Sprinkle the greens with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and some protein on top like a lamb patty, healthy burger patty or any piece of meat. Top off the breakfast with something fermented like sauerkraut, avocados for good fats and pomegranate seeds for a touch of color. “Have a balanced diet without just eating one food excessively. A lot of times women don’t have just one hormonal imbalance. So set the foundation right,” said Magdalena Wszelaki. She adds, “There are early signs that we are struggling with our hormones and health. Listen to those signs. Clear out your digestion, balance blood sugar, avoid caffeine and sugar.”  Additional Resources To know more recipes that promote balancing hormones, check out Magdalena Wszelaki’s protocol cookbook, Cooking for Hormone Balance which is available on her website.  Not only does it have a lot of healthy recipes, but the book also contains a lot of science about the food you should eat. It’s a practical program with over 125 recipes that are easy to do. Her website also has a quiz to help you figure out if you do have a hormone imbalance.  The quiz assesses thyroid, estrogen, progesterone and cortisol levels. Bio Founder of the popular Hormones Balance online community, holistic nutrition coach Magdalena Wszelaki knows the value of cooking for hormone balance firsthand. Developing hyperthyroidism and then Hashimoto’s, adrenal fatigue and estrogen dominance propelled her to leave a high-pressured advertising career and develop a new way of eating that would repair and keep her hormones working smoothly.  Now symptom-free, Magdalena Wszelaki shares her practical, proven knowledge so other women may benefit. In Cooking for Hormone Balance, she draws on current research to explain the essential role food plays in keeping our hormones in harmony and offers easy, flavorful recipes to help us eat our way to good health. She also offers clear, concise action plans for what to remove and add to our daily diet to regain hormonal balance, including guides for specific conditions. Get Connected With Magdalena Wszelaki!

275 How To Gain Muscle and Strength without Lifting Heavy Weights, Arthritis, Weight Loss, Physical Therapy, Human Groth Hormone, Blood Flow Restriction Training, BFR Bands, Neuroscience, ZHealth, Vis

Use Coupon Code LTH at checkout.   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.

274 The Methylation Diet and Lifestyle, MTHFR and More, Epigenetic Expression, Functional Medicine, Naturopath Dr. Kara Fitzgerald, Ashley James, Learn True Health

Website: drkarafitzgerald.com Support the Learn True Health Podcast on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/learntruehealth patreon.com/learntruehealth   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.

273 How To Eliminate Anxiety, Create Healthy Habits that Stick and Rewire Your Brain For Success and Happiness, NLP, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Melissa Monte, Mind Love Podcast, Ashley James, Learn

Today we will learn: How and why anxiety affects your whole life How to effectively form new habits 3 techniques to eliminate anxiety, whether it’s around a specific event, the outlook of your day or the span of your life Check out this episode and it's show notes on MindLove's Site: https://mindlove.com/033 The MindLove podcast’s Instagram and Twitter is: @mindlovepodcast   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.  Free Your Anxiety Webinar To know more about techniques for eliminating anxiety, do check out my website and click on the link to join my free webinar.

272 Zero Waste Journey to Better Health and Mindfulness, Sustainability, Fair Trade, Food Waste, Menstrual Cup, No More Plastic, Rachel Pulley, Ashley James, Learn True Health Podcast

 This is where Rachel Pulley teaches Zero Waste Life Style classes. She will be adding summer classes soon as well: http://www.kickshawsdowntownmarket.com For more info on the anti-microbial bags that we speak about contact Ginny or visit her site: ginnygrotholson@gmail.com Ginnygrotholson.norwex.biz 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.  Get Connected With Rachel Pulley!

271 The Rain Barrel Effect, How To Stop Disease and How to Heal, Fatigue, Autoimmune, Hashimoto's, Weight Loss, Stress, Naturopathy, Ayurvedic, Functional Medicine, Dr. Stephen Cabral, Ashley James, L

Get access to everything Dr. Cabral spoke about in our interview here: http://stephencabral.com/Ashley 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.  Get Connected With Dr. Stephen Cabral!

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 Ja

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.

269 How To Eat and Fast To Eliminate Disease, Repair Organs and Build Health, Anti-Viral Diet, Anti-Fungal Diet, Anti-Cancer Diet, Whole 30, Ketogenic Diet, Vegan, Fasting, Dr. Darren Schmidt and Ashl

Dr. Darren Schmidt's websites: www.thenhcaa.com for helping individuals with their health. www.goodfat.bar to buy the Good Fat Bars which are the cleanest and most ketogenic bars on the market. www.powernutritionpractice.com where we train doctors and nutrition practitioners clinical and business management.   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.

268 Using the Mind-Body Connection to Heal Chronic Fatigue and Autoimmune Disease, Bioenergetics, Heart Rate Variability, NLP, Emotional Freedom Technique, Matrix Reimprinting, Stress Response, Healin

www.nikigratrix.com One to one consultations: https://www.abundantenergyportal.com/consultonetoone   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.

267 Using Diet To Heal Disease, IBS, GERD, Gallbladder, Cancer, Candida, Diabetes, Insulin, Gluten, Keto, Kidneys, Certified Health Coach, Sarah Kostusiak, Ashley James, Learn True Health Podcast

Sarah's work website - North Austin Wellness - https://northaustinwellness.com Blog - http://lifeloveandthyme.com   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.

266 How To Get Vitamin K2 For Healthy Bones, Heart, Brain, Algae The Superfood, Vegan, Omega 3, Autism, ADHD, Chlorella, Spirulina, Cancer, Heavy Metals, EnergyBits Founder Catharine Arnston, Ashley J

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.
