The dark side to most dairy products is that many people have hidden sensitivities to cow's milk that is causing inflammation in their body. So if you don't want to give up dairy, but want to avoid reactions to cow's milk, what are you supposed to do? Interestingly enough, not all dairy products come from cows. In fact, a great substitute for cow milk is to use goat milk.

How Goat Milk Can Be A Substitute for Dairy Allergies with Joe Stout

When thinking of dairy products, most of the time we picture cows grazing in the fields and a farmer milking the cow. The dark side to most dairy products is that many people have hidden sensitivities to cow’s milk that is causing inflammation in their body.

So if you don’t want to give up dairy, but want to avoid reactions to cow’s milk, what are you supposed to do? Interestingly enough, not all dairy products come from cows. In fact, a great substitute for cow milk is to use goat milk.

How is Goat Milk Different Than Cow Milk

Goat milk actually has quite a few differences compared to other milk. For instance, goat milk does not contain the same levels of Alpha s1 Casein that is found in cow milk. This type of casein is highly allergenic, and goat milk has nearly 90% less than cow.

Goat milk is also easier to digest. The milk contains more medium chain triglycerides, which is an easier fat for the body to digest. Studies have also shown that the protein in goat milk digests much more smoothly than that of cow milk.

In this episode, Joe Stout and I talk a lot more about how goat milk can be used as a substitute for cow milk:

»What some of the benefits of using goat milk are

»How goat milk is similar to human milk

»Why goat milk is so mineral rich

»What types of goat milk products are good for mineral absorption and protein synthesis

Scientific Approach to Fitness with Mike Lee

Have you ever spent some time with a coach or trainer who put you through grueling workouts? For many of us, the answer is yes. While getting a good sweat in can feel great, if you have specific goals you want to reach, then you might need a more structured approach.

The fitness world is an interesting world because everyone has their own philosophies and their own needs. When you take a group exercise class, your goals are probably different than the person next to you.

One thing is for sure, you end up coming out of any training session sweaty and exhausted.

If your overall goal is to get into better shape, then this approach can work very well for you. But if you want to try and compete in some fitness events, such as Crossfit, then you will need a more structured approach.

Scientific Approach to Fitness vs Opinion Approach

What we tend to see in a group fitness setting is what I would consider to be an “opinion approach” to exercise protocols. This is because the person who is leading the class decided that workout would be best for everyone in the room. While there can be some adjustments made for specific needs, the majority of the workout is designed for the group as a whole.

The scientific approach to fitness is based upon using principles and strategies that we know to be true in athletics, and apply it to one person’s specific needs. This is what we see in competitive fitness events when one athlete has one coach. That coach is focused on providing the athlete what they need in order to be successful.

Mike Lee focuses his training programs on the scientific approach to fitness. As he trains athletes to compete at these high levels, he needs to develop their plans based off of their needs. This is how he has had a few athletes place so well at competitions.

In this episode we talk about:

»How to assess an athlete to see what competitions they would be best at

»Why recovery is so important to the health of the athlete

»How to become adaptive in your workout routines for any curveballs thrown at you

»What a training program might look like

While both of those examples are of people with hypermobile tendencies, it does not mean that they are immune to joint pain and health issues. In fact, many people with increased flexibility tend to run into a lot of health issues, including digestive disorders.

Helping Those with Hypermobile Joints with Sara Russell

When you imagine someone who is hypermobile, what comes to mind? Do you think of a contortionist whose hypermobile joints can bend in ways unimaginable? Or what about the people who can pull their finger back all the way to their wrist?

While both of those examples are of people with hypermobile tendencies, it does not mean that they are immune to joint pain and health issues. In fact, many people with increased flexibility tend to run into a lot of health issues, including digestive disorders.

What Causes Someone to Be Hypermobile

Many cases of hypermobility can be traced back through the lineage to other ancestors who had it as well. It is pretty rare to find someone who is the first generation of hypermobility. If this is the case, then that typically means the genes were recessive through many generations.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a rare form of hypermobility that causes nearly everything in the body to be extra flexible. This includes bones, joints, skin, and other tissues.

Sara Russell is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who is known to take on complicated cases in her practice. She is a hypermobile person, and has gone through much of the emotional and physical complications that is associated with this condition. In this episode we talk about:

»The different types of hypermobility and how it impacts different people

»Some common health issues related to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

»How to emotionally get through life when dealing with complicated health problems

»Ways to support your digestive system to properly break down food

Weight Loss and the Microbiome Connection with Kiran Krishnan

The gut microbiome is one of the most powerful regions of the human body. A lot of research is coming out about the importance of the bacteria in the body, and Kiran Krishnan is one of the researchers leading the way for all of us.

The microbiome is made of around 1500 different strains of bacteria that all work together to keep the body healthy. Of the 1500 strains, we only understand around 10% of their total functionality.

With more research coming out every single day, soon we will be able to understand how each strain of bacteria impacts the body.

Can the Microbiome Cause Health Issues and Weight Gain

Research is showing that an imbalance of bacteria in the gut can cause a lot of health issues that we see on the rise today. With an increase in antibiotic use and exposure to pesticide-rich foods (which you can learn more about here), the microbiome is under more assault then it ever has been.

The use of antibiotics has been shown to increase weight in cattle. In fact, many cattle farms use antibiotics not only to reduce chances of disease, but also to make the cattle increase weight faster. This has also been shown to happen in humans, and with an imbalanced microbiome, weight gain can also occur.

But have no fear, the microbiome is very resilient and with the proper care, it can bounce back. In this episode, Kiran Krishnan and I discuss:

»How does the microbiome impact the overall functions of the body

»What the microbiome is like in different regions of the body, such as the genitals

»Why are Bacillus Endospores important for the recovery of the good bacteria in the gut

»Do fermented foods actually provide probiotics

The big debate for quite some time is not necessarily about the richness of nutrients in processed foods, but more about the way these crops are grown. There are so many different types of crops now (organic, pesticides used, GMO, etc) how are we supposed to know what is healthy?

Does It Matter if the Crops are GMO or Organic?

This is the debate of the century. If you walked down the streets, everyone seems to have their opinion on what is best.

Some say organic crops cost too much to grow and are too fragile to pests. Others say that GMO crops provide a much higher yield and is more beneficial to farmers.

So what is the truth? What types of crops should we be using, and does it really make a difference?

In this episode, I talk with Dr. Michelle Perro and Vincanne Adams, PhD about the quality of food in our food system, and what the research is saying about GMO crops versus organic crops.

This does not mean that the ocular microbiome isn’t important. In fact, it could tell us more about how to protect the eye and how to prevent eye disease.

Why Should We Care About the Ocular Microbiome

For years ophthalmologists have been able to see correlations between the eyes and issues going on within the gut and rest of the body. The eyes provide a window into the general health of the body.

Previously, the eye was considered to be a sterile environment. Now the research is saying otherwise.

With the findings of bacteria on the eyes and in the eyelids, it demonstrates that the body has some sort of defense mechanism to keep out foreign pathogens. With researchers like Dr. Harvey Fishman looking at how the ocular microbiome fits into the bigger picture of the human body, we can learn a lot about the health of a person.

And if you don’t think there is much bacteria and parasites that need to be kept off of the eyeball, then just contact Dr. Fishman to pluck one of your eyelashes to show you what may be living on it 😉.

In this week’s episode, Dr. Harvey Fishman and I discuss:

»The different projects he has worked on such as artificial retinal prosthesis

»What has been discovered with the ocular microbiome

»Can systemic antibiotics impact the health of the microbiome of the eye

»What foods and nutrients can support the health of the eyes

Fitness and Nutrition for the Older Population with Krysti Slonaker

As we start to age, there are different nutritional and movement needs that we need to add into our daily lives. When it comes to the older population, it is extremely important to focus on a couple specifics:

  • Protein
  • Water and hydration
  • Mineral depletion
  • Coordination
  • Balance

For the elderly, these start to become extremely necessary to feel great and safe each and every day.

Why These Areas of Health are Necessary For the Elderly

When the body starts to age, some functions don’t seem to work as well as when we were younger. One of those functions is our ability to digest food, and use the protein from food to rebuild tissues in the body.

Water and overall hydration is also needed for strong and healthy tissues in the body, however for some reason the elderly tend to not drink enough water. This is a nutrient that makes up most of our body, and is needed even more so once we get older so that we can move fluidly.

Mineral depletion is a huge topic because it effects our bone structure, hormone regulation, nerve impulses, and even heart beat. Without the proper minerals, the older population can see a decline in their health and even be more prone to injuries if they fall.

Coordination and balance are important for those moments when someone elderly steps wrong, comes across an obstacle, or is blindsided by something that causes them to fall. Improving these areas will help them to better react to their environment to avoid unnecessary injuries.

In this week’s episode, Krysti Slonaker and I discuss:

»What nutrients the elderly tend to miss out on in their daily meals

»How to add protein sources into their diet

»Ways to improve their movement quality

»What to do if an elderly person falls over

Fitness and Nutrition for the Older Population with Krysti Slonaker
As we start to age, there are different nutritional and movement needs that we need to add into our daily lives. When it comes to the older population, it is extremely important to focus on a couple specifics:

* Protein
* Water and hydration
* Mineral depletion
* Coordination
* Balance

For the elderly, these start to become extremely necessary to feel great and safe each and every day.
Why These Areas of Health are Necessary For the Elderly
When the body starts to age, some functions don't seem to work as well as when we were younger. One of those functions is our ability to digest food, and use the protein from food to rebuild tissues in the body.

Water and overall hydration is also needed for strong and healthy tissues in the body, however for some reason the elderly tend to not drink enough water. This is a nutrient that makes up most of our body, and is needed even more so once we get older so that we can move fluidly.

Mineral depletion is a huge topic because it effects our bone structure, hormone regulation, nerve impulses, and even heart beat. Without the proper minerals, the older population can see a decline in their health and even be more prone to injuries if they fall.

Coordination and balance are important for those moments when someone elderly steps wrong, comes across an obstacle, or is blindsided by something that causes them to fall. Improving these areas will help them to better react to their environment to avoid unnecessary injuries.

In this week's episode, Krysti Slonaker and I discuss:
»What nutrients the elderly tend to miss out on in their daily meals
»How to add protein sources into their diet
»Ways to improve their movement quality
»What to do if an elderly person falls over

Amino Acid Therapy For Optimal Brain Function with Laurie Hammer

Over the past couple of decades, we have seen a big increase in neurotransmitter dysfunction ranging from anxiety and depression, to Alzheimer’s and even Schizophrenia. The 4 main neurotransmitters that we pay attention to are:

  • Serotonin
  • GABA
  • Catecholamines
  • Endorphins

There has been a lot of information coming out about the power of the Ketogenic Diet for optimal brain function, but that relates mostly to the brain cells using ketones as the primary fuel source compared to glucose. What we don’t hear about often enough is the types of amino acids needed to produce neurotransmitters.

This is where Amino Acid Therapy starts to shine. The focus with AAT is to find the necessary amino acids to help build the proper neurotransmitters for any symptom you may have.

How Can Amino Acid Therapy Improve Neurotransmitter Function

Amino acids are needed to build neurotransmitters. Naturally, our bodies will break down dietary protein into the necessary amino acids to produce the neurotransmitters. However, in most cases, people aren’t consuming the right proteins or they aren’t fully digesting proteins.

With Amino Acid Therapy, the practitioner understands that certain amino acids are used to build certain neurotransmitters. By taking a look at your symptoms, they can pinpoint the most likely amino acids you would need, then they test it on you right in their office. This gives you immediate answers to the amino acids you need to improve your brain chemistry!

In this week’s episode, Laurie Hammer and I discuss:

»What is Amino Acid Therapy and how it relates to neurotransmitter function

»Which amino acids are important for specific neurotransmitters

»How to test for the right amino acids

»How deficiencies in amino acids and neurotransmitters can lead to unnatural appetites

This is a common thought for women who are getting older. Weight gain, insomnia, and decreased energy is just a byproduct of aging, and there is nothing you can do about it…

Or so we thought. These issues are actually a sign of dysregulation in the endocrine system, and it shows that your body is struggling to regulate hormones effectively. There actually is hope in getting back your energy, and to regulate hormones properly!

What is Endocrine Dysfunction

The endocrine system is a “messenger system” in the body. It sends hormones throughout the body to tell organs to create balance in the body. The main glands involved are the Thyroid and Adrenal Glands.

When this system is disrupted, then we see a huge problem in how we regulate hormones. Once these hormones are out of control, it can take quite some time to bring them back to balance.

That is why in this week’s episode, Cynthia Thurlow and I discuss how to improve the endocrine system to help regulate hormones, reduce weight gain, and improve energy:

»What does endocrine dysfunction look like and why do women deal with it

»How to improve your sleep so you feel rested and energized

»Strategies to improve the HPA axis

»Why does weight gain happen and what to do about it

Many times this is a Comprehensive Wellness Panel, and will tell you information such as your red and white blood counts, lipid profile, and some minerals. When you start to have some health symptoms, your doctor may order some other tests for further information. The idea to dig deeper is great, but many times these tests aren't looking in the right areas, or the doctors aren't using them to figure out the root causes. For instance, if you show signs of a thyroid issue, the doctor will typically run a TSH test, and if you are lucky, they may even check for T4 and T3. However, these are only a small part of the puzzle as there are other hormones associated with the thyroid, and this still isn't incorporating the results into the big picture of the body!

How Important Are Diagnostic Tools for Nutrition with Ryan Monahan

If you have ever go in for your yearly checkup with your doctor, there is no doubt that at some point you have gone through some diagnostic tools, such as blood tests, to see your nutrient and hormone levels. Many times this is a Comprehensive Wellness Panel, and will tell you information such as your red and white blood counts, lipid profile, and some minerals.

When you start to have some health symptoms, your doctor may order some other tests for further information. The idea to dig deeper is great, but many times these tests aren’t looking in the right areas, or the doctors aren’t using them to figure out the root causes.

However, these are only a small part of the puzzle as there are other hormones associated with the thyroid, and this still isn’t incorporating the results into the big picture of the body!

Using Diagnostic Tools to Find Root Causes of Health Issues

We can learn a lot of valuable information from the results of tests, but in most cases, you may be prescribed a medication for the diagnosis. The problem here is that we call this type of treatment “symptom chasing”, meaning when a symptom arises, a pill is thrown at it to knock it down. When another symptom pops up, then another pill is thrown at it.

This is not how protocols should be designed, and it does not look for the root cause to the issue.

Wouldn’t you rather find out why your lab results are not within the ranges they should be in? Don’t you prefer to take care of the issue now, instead of having more symptoms pop up later on?

That is exactly what Ryan Monahan and I discuss in this week’s episode:

»How Ryan chased symptoms for years in his own health issues before looking into the root causes

»The 7 main tests he likes to use in his practice

»How testing gives you valuable information to then build protocols off of

»Where to start on your health journey once you have this health information

How Important Are Diagnostic Tools for Nutrition with Ryan Monahan
If you have ever go in for your yearly checkup with your doctor, there is no doubt that at some point you have gone through some diagnostic tools, such as blood tests, to see your nutrient and hormone levels. Many times this is a Comprehensive Wellness Panel, and will tell you information such as your red and white blood counts, lipid profile, and some minerals.

When you start to have some health symptoms, your doctor may order some other tests for further information. The idea to dig deeper is great, but many times these tests aren't looking in the right areas, or the doctors aren't using them to figure out the root causes.

For instance, if you show signs of a thyroid issue, the doctor will typically run a TSH test, and if you are lucky, they may even check for T4 and T3. However, these are only a small part of the puzzle as there are other hormones associated with the thyroid, and this still isn't incorporating the results into the big picture of the body!
Using Diagnostic Tools to Find Root Causes of Health Issues
We can learn a lot of valuable information from the results of tests, but in most cases, you may be prescribed a medication for the diagnosis. The problem here is that we call this type of treatment "symptom chasing", meaning when a symptom arises, a pill is thrown at it to knock it down. When another symptom pops up, then another pill is thrown at it.

This is not how protocols should be designed, and it does not look for the root cause to the issue.

Wouldn't you rather find out why your lab results are not within the ranges they should be in? Don't you prefer to take care of the issue now, instead of having more symptoms pop up later on?

That is exactly what Ryan Monahan and I discuss in this week's episode:
»How Ryan chased symptoms for years in his own health issues before looking into the root causes
»The 7 main tests he likes to use in his practice
»How testing gives you valuable information to then build protocols off of

What about being so sad that you down a whole thing of ice cream? If so, you aren't alone, and our emotional eating has a lot to do with different types of textures. Different types of textures are associated with different emotions we are experiencing because of how our body perceives these textures. For instance, a creamy texture can be really soothing, which is why we turn to the ice cream when we are sad.  Once we understand how these textures integrate with our emotional eating, we can then take this information and understand what it is our body is trying to tell us!

Have you ever been so stressed out that you end up eating an entire bag of chips or something else crunchy? What about being so sad that you down a whole thing of ice cream? If so, you aren’t alone, and our emotional eating has a lot to do with different types of textures.

Once we understand how these textures integrate with our emotional eating, we can then take this information and understand what it is our body is trying to tell us!

Understanding Emotional Eating Keeps Us Away from Craving Bad Foods

Once you understand what each type of craving means, you may want to go find any food that will help to balance out those emotions and eat it! Just because you know a food matches the texture that your emotions want, does not mean it is good to eat.

You can still make good healthy food choices to balance out the emotions. And just because a food is “healthy” does not mean it needs to taste terrible. Making whole food choices to match textures to emotions is one of the best ways to satisfy your emotional eating.

In this episode, Mollie Doyle and I discuss:

»3 main textures of food and emotions it correlates to

»How cravings can tell you a lot about your emotional state

»Ways to avoid craving binges

Heavy Metal Toxicity and How to Detox with Wendy Myers

When was the last time you thought about how your mineral levels are doing? Likely your answer is ‘never’, or at the most you say that you get calcium from your milk. So if we don’t think about minerals, why would heavy metal toxicity become something we are interested in?

As Wendy Myers said in our podcast, the minerals are the spark plugs for the body. When minerals are out of balance, then a lot of dysfunction can start to occur. Heavy metals are known to place themselves where normal minerals are supposed to be in the body, however instead of improving our function, it creates heavy metal toxicity.

What Are Heavy Metals and What is Heavy Metal Toxicity

Heavy metals, or toxic metals, are forms of minerals that are much denser and more toxic than other minerals. These can be deposited throughout the body, and can come from our food, air, and environment.

The problem with heavy metals is that they are difficult to detox fully out of the body. So what happens is that a buildup of metals can occur in the body, and start creating heavy metal toxicity.

Some symptoms of heavy metal toxicity are:

  • Nausea
  • Vomitting
  • Heart Problems
  • Cognitive Issues
  • Fatigue

Remember, these are only some of the symptoms. Wendy Myers talks a lot more about symptoms and what to look for in this episode!

In this episode, Wendy Myers and I discuss:

»What are toxic metals and how can they impact the body

»Benefits of mineralization to get toxic metals moving out of the system

»How to improve detoxification pathways in the body

»Why toxic metals can interrupt your energy

Benefits and Politics of CBD Oil with Maryam Henein

As a Schedule 1 substance, CBD and hemp has been debated for a long time about whether this is a dangerous plant for humans to use. However, with the rise in states legalizing marijuana, and people being open to try new options, we have seen a lot of benefits to using CBD Oil.

In fact, some of the most common reports of CBD Oil usage is for seizures, anxiety, and even chronic pain. And you know what we don’t ever hear about? The psychoactive properties of CBD…

…because there are none.

CBD Oil is much different than marijuana. Many people think because it comes from the same plant, it has the same properties. But this is far from true. While marijuana has increased levels of THC and psychoactive properties, CBD oil has neither of these.

How Can People Start to Use CBD Oil for Health Benefits

If we look at the politics behind CBD, you can see that it is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which means it is the highest level of illegal that drugs can be. However, these same agencies that are trying to ban CBD, are also working hard to isolate out specific constituents and patent them.

It creates a lot of hypocrisy around the product. Because of these political battles, it can be tough to find a high quality CBD Oil. But not impossible.

Here is a list of some benefits experienced from using CBD Oil:

  • Relief from pain and inflammation
  • Antipsychotic effects
  • Treatment of seizures
  • Anxiety and other neurological disorders
  • Reduces elevated blood sugar
  • Relief of nausea

Since it is so hard to find a good quality CBD or Hemp Oil, you will want to read labels and discover how these oils were created. We talk about this in our podcast as well.

The Hemp Oil that I recommend is the Superior Hemp Oil, which is a combination of CBD and Chinese herbs. It is a very unique and powerful blend! You can receive 15% off by using the coupon code WELLNESS15 until June 8th.

In the past, heart disease wasn’t a known issue. It has only been recently that these issues have skyrocketed, which means we need to look at what has changed.

We know that the foods our ancestors ate were packed full of nutrients compared to the foods we now eat. The animals fed on natural vegetation, and the plants we ate came from soil rich with nutrients.

Now, we can breed a cow from calf to table in less than 2 years, our plants come from nutrient-depleted soils, and we are forced to work our tails off to try and survive in this world.

All of that is recipe for disaster.

Dr. Jack Wolfson is known as the Paleo Cardiologist, and he spends his time looking for the root causes to disease instead of putting bandaids on the issue. You won’t see any statin drugs in his clinic, for he relies on falling back onto the roots of our ancestors to reverse heart disease.

In this episode, Jack Wolfson and I discuss:

»What are the differences between regular cardiology and his practice

»How cholesterol is not the enemy within the body

»Why we should rely on high quality foods in our diet

»If statins are necessary to reversing heart disease

Holistic Approach to Heart Disease with Jack Wolfson
As the number 1 leading cause of death in America, heart disease is a problem that we've had a hard time fixing. For most cardiologists, they spend their time throwing pills at patients, or opening them up to fix the issue.

For years we have been told that saturated fat is evil, and that cholesterol will kill us all. While everyone has been eating low-fat, sugar intake has increased dramatically, and heart disease has also risen.

So maybe the problem isn't the cholesterol-rich foods we used to eat, but instead are other issues with our food system and out stress levels.
Why It Is Important to Look At What Our Ancestors Ate to Reduce Heart Disease

Changing Cancer Support Systems with Megan Van Zyl

We live in an age where 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life. The sad part is, people don’t really want to discuss this issue, and we never hear anything about the cancer support that is provided for these individuals.

It is a very scary diagnosis to receive, but we can’t keep quiet about the different options for treatment. Yes there is chemo and radiation as options, but these literally just kill the area around the cancer cells with the hopes it’ll kill the cancer as well.

Why We Should Place More Focus on Cancer Support

When someone receives the diagnosis for cancer, they are instantly told about their current options such as chemo and radiation. They make it sound like you don’t have time to think, and to get going on the process asap.

While there are stages of cancer that need immediate support, for many who are diagnosed they have time to settle down and think through options. Cancer does not occur overnight, it is usually at least a 7+ year developmental process.

This is why Megan Van Zyl has developed her cancer support system in which she educates clients about treatment options, nutritional support, emotional support, and more.

In this episode, Megan and I discuss:

»What traditionally happens in the doctor’s office when you receive a cancer diagnosis

»Types of food that will better support the body during treatments

»What supplements provide the nutrients your body needs

»How emotions can tie into the progression of cancer

There could be quite a few areas within the pelvic floor that might not function properly, but the most common issue is incontinence. Nearly 1 in 5 women suffer from urinary incontinence, which makes up the majority of PFDs. For an issue that is so widely spread across our communities, many of the conversations aren't about ways to improve these issues. Most people assume that incontinence is just a byproduct of getting older.

Reducing Incontinence by Retraining the Female Pelvic Floor

Roughly 1 in 4 women suffer from some form of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD). There could be quite a few areas within the pelvic floor that might not function properly, but the most common issue is incontinence. Nearly 1 in 5 women suffer from urinary incontinence, which makes up the majority of PFDs.

For an issue that is so widely spread across our communities, many of the conversations aren’t about ways to improve these issues. Most people assume that incontinence is just a byproduct of getting older.

However, Christina Christie doesn’t agree with that statement. She is a pelvic floor specialist, and she says that no amount of incontinence is normal. Instead of assuming that incontinence is just a natural part of life, she stepped back to find what the root causes of incontinence might be.

What Causes Incontinence Issues

Many times we see incontinence issues during and right after a woman gives birth. This is because your body releases hormones that help to relax the muscles and tissues around the pelvic floor to make the birthing process easier.

After giving birth, many women go back to their old exercise routines (if they have any). They start to exercise in a way to lose the baby weight, or to get back in shape. They focus on all the main muscle groups of the body, except one:

The Pelvic-Core.

Just like anywhere else in the body, the pelvic floor needs to be retrained. The work Christina Christie is doing to support women with the retraining phase for the pelvic floor has been phenomenal, and many women have massive reduction in incontinence.

In this episode, Christina Christie and I discuss:

»What are the differences between pelvic floors of men and women

»What happens to the female pelvic floor during pregnancy

»How training the pelvic floor during pregnancy can actually help for the recovery after birth

»Strategies for improving incontinence issues

How to Build a Healthy Family with Amy Slater

It is no surprise that families have a hard time to create healthy routines for the entire family. With young kids running around (or even teenagers), parents who work full time, and having to actually “adult”, it can be stressful to build a healthy family.

It can be very easy to throw in the towel on workouts and healthy eating, and resort to grabbing whatever is convenient and easy. You may think it is easier to give your child that extra snack so they don’t cry instead of standing your ground and making them eat their veggies.

To give in to convenience and taking the easy route does not create a healthy family. Training kids to receive treats for doing “good” things ingrains a reward pathway in the brain where they incorporate happiness and pleasure with snacks. This doesn’t mean kids shouldn’t get treats from time to time, but we do want to make sure they enjoy real food instead of constantly falling for processed junk.

Why Creating Healthy Family Practices Is Important

Let’s face it, the majority of adults get to the point where they end up chasing health and either want to lose weight or have health issues they are trying to work around. Instead of having 1 person within the family “on a diet” or exercising, how about the whole family gets involved!

Joining in healthy rituals together with the family builds a great foundation for the children. It also makes the adults more likely to succeed on their own journey. How many times have you been on a diet, and your spouse ends up bringing home junk food? When only 1 person in the family is changing the way they eat or move, there are too many other temptations still in the house, which leads to failure.

This is why I brought on Amy Slater to talk about how she has incorporated healthy family practices in her household. Not only is she training 6 people to eat healthy and love to exercise, she has her hands full with 2 sets of twins under 8 years old!

In this episode, Amy Slater and I discuss:

»How a health issue after the first pregnancy made her think twice about her food

»Why there isn’t support for mothers after pregnancy

»Ways to provide healthy meals for a large family

»How to find time for your own personal health practices

Treating Eczema From Within with Stephanie Davis

We see many commercials for topical creams that are supposed to “treat” eczema. However, over 35 million Americans still suffer from eczema on a daily basis. Could there be more to the puzzle than just what we see on the outside of the body?

Eczema is where patches of the skin becomes rough and inflammed. These patches can become itchy which may also lead to bleeding. Typically they are found on the hands and knees.

While many people use topical creams or lotions to dry and reduce inflammation and re-hydrate the skin, there is usually an underlying issue that is more internal which is causing the eczema. In this episode, we talk with Dr. Stephanie Davis to learn more about ways to treat eczema.

Why Does Eczema Flare Up

This is a fantastic question to ask. If you suffer from eczema, chances are you go through waves where it is really bad, then it gets better. It typically isn’t due to your skincare treatments that you are doing, but more about what is going on within your body.

Each person can have different triggers that can flare them up. For some people, it can be stress-related. For others, it could be a heavy metal issue. These are just some reasons why a flareup can occur.

Because there are so many reasons why you may suffer from a flareup, it is important to find a practitioner to work with who can look at your health history and really break it down to find the root causes to the eczema.

In this episode, Dr. Stephanie Davis and I discuss:

»Differences between conventional and functional medicine

»How to categorize treatment starting points for a patient

»Some leading predispositions that can cause eczema

»Strategies to reduce the triggers that cause flareups

The Molekule Air Purifier can help to eradicate these airborne pollutants which can reduce your overall reactions to these toxins.

The Importance of Purifying the Air

There has been a lot of discussion through the years about purification of the air and what it can do to the overall health of our bodies. For some who suffer from asthma and allergies, it can be very beneficial, whereas those who are considered to be in good health could be exposed to having stronger immune reactions when they come across bacteria and viruses.

This is because we are worried that a too-sterile environment can weaken our immune system because it doesn’t learn to fight off these known bacteria and viruses. Also, a lot of times these sterile environments use chemicals or antibacterial agents that can get inside our GI tracts and destroy the gut microbiome.

There is a problem with the indoor environment that does make it worthwhile to purify: because it is a closed area, pollutants can be 5x more potent than outside. If you live in a house that is full of mold, pet dander, VOCs, or other environmental pollutants, using a Molekule Air Purifier can be a great way to reduce these toxins in a way that doesn’t destroy your microbiome.

Treating Mold Toxicity with Kelly McCann

Mold. When you think of mold, I am sure you instantly think of what grows on your fruits and vegetables if you don’t eat them quick enough. If you think a little more, than you may have found some mold under the tiles of your bathroom from a small leak you had fixed, or somewhere else in the house where you did some remodeling.

What we don’t hear a whole lot about is the damage mold can do to our health. Breathing in mold spores can be very damaging to the body, and many times we don’t even know we are breathing it in!

Mold toxicity can secretly be weakening the immune system of your body, and you don’t even know it. Then one day everything about your health seems to collapse, and you fall down a rabbit hole of trying to discover what is causing your health issues.

Why is Mold Toxicity So Dangerous?

The problem with mold toxicity is that it can take on many symptoms of other illnesses, which can make it difficult to diagnose. We talked about this a little bit with Dr. Darin Ingels in our episode about Lyme Disease, how Lyme and mold are very good at tricking us to think other illnesses are what is causing the decline in our health.

Mold releases mycotoxins which is what causes the most damage to the body. These toxins cause the body to react in a severe inflammatory response, which can lead to what is known as Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS).

The level of toxic molds can be 10x more potent inside our living spaces compared to outside. This is because the species of fungi are battling for a small amount of space, and we are much more susceptible to these spores within the air inside.

In this episode, Dr, Kelly McCann and I discuss:

»Why mold exposure can be so dangerous to our health

»What are some symptoms of mold toxicity

»Ways to test your environment to determine if it is unsafe

»How to detox your own body from mold toxicity

What is the Importance of the Chakra System?

Each Chakra correlates to different organs, personality traits, emotions, parts of the nervous system, and more. By understanding the Chakra system, and seeing the symptoms a patient presents, Steve is able to have an idea of different areas to focus on in his treatments.

If these energy systems sound a little woo woo, Steve does a fantastic job at the end of this episode to tie it all together into real-life scenarios.

In this episode, Steve Politis and I discuss:

»What the 7 Chakras represent within the human body

»How to move in a way that stimulates all these different Chakra points

What is the Importance of the Chakra System?
Each Chakra correlates to different organs, personality traits, emotions, parts of the nervous system, and more. By understanding the Chakra system, and seeing the symptoms a patient presents, Steve is able to have an idea of different areas to focus on in his treatments.

If these energy systems sound a little woo woo, Steve does a fantastic job at the end of this episode to tie it all together into real-life scenarios.

In this episode, Steve Politis and I discuss:
»The different types of energetic systems used by various cultures
»What the 7 Chakras represent within the human body
»How to move in a way that stimulates all these different Chakra points
»How to apply the Chakra System to Physical Therapy

Julia Morichelli is a fitness trainer who also suffers from autoimmunity. She has been diagnosed with multiple autoimmune conditions, so she knows all too well how difficult exercising can be.

Why Does Autoimmunity Occur?

There really is no easy answer to this question. It could be caused from toxic exposure to chemicals. Or maybe the foods you are eating leads to intestinal permeability, which is the beginning of the assault on your immune system.

Regardless of why it occurs, if you have the symptoms related to autoimmune disorders, then it is best to work with a functional doctor to figure out a game plan. This way you can do everything you can to minimize the symptoms as much as possible.

In this episode, Julia Morichelli and I discuss:

»How to communicate with doctors to figure out the right tests to get a diagnosis

»After receiving a diagnosis, what are some steps you can take to help alleviate symptoms

»How can you build a fitness program around your autoimmune issues

»What to do each day to be reduce stress and to minimize symptoms

And vice versa, can an exercise at the gym help with the rehab process, or even prevent an injury from occurring?

Our guest Pat McCloskey answers these questions within this podcast episode. At his training studio they are combining fitness routines with the rehabilitation process.

Is There Much Difference Between Fitness Exercises and Rehab?

The easy answer is yes, there is a difference. If you tore your acl, the beginning stages of your acl rehab will be significantly different than if you were a soccer player trying to improve performance.

However, the line between the two can be pretty vague. If you are training someone with functional movement patterns for the activities they are going to do, then technically you are providing prehab. If someone is at the tail end of their treatment for acl reconstruction, they should be integrating their protocol with movements for the activities they are going back to.

This is where Pat and I talk about how the training and therapy world need to use their brains when working with clients and patients, and start providing the full care they need.

In this episode, Pat McCloskey and I discuss:

»Ways for trainers to improve their fitness strategies

»How people can combine fitness routines with their rehab protocols

»Where is the line between functional movement and traditional exercises

»How a stroke reaffirmed these treatments processes for Pat

This is because registering a concept in a set of 3 is very easy for the brain to comprehend. This is why we celebrate Gold, Silver and Bronze for events, because if we had a fourth option, it would be more difficult to remember. This is also why many books are written in 3s, such as trilogies, or the 3 musketeers. This is why the power of the triad becomes so important in any kind of rehab protocol. If we focus on groups of three, the brain and the body, plus the spirit (see what I did there??) will be impacted in a much more powerful way.

How to Apply a Triad to Physical Therapy

If you have ever been to a physical therapist, you might not have even noticed that they are working in triads. We see this in the planes of motion that are available, the mind/body/spirit component, and even in the neuromusculoskeletal system.

Many of these areas where we see triadoxes occurring cannot be impacted singularly. If you touch one arm of the triad, you are really influencing all of the different components on some level.

My guest today, Jennifer Lee of Spooner PT, loves this whole idea of working with the triads. She sees the power of 3 every single day in her practice, and is fascinated by the changes she sees when you touch all aspects of a triad.

In this episode, Jennifer Lee and I discuss:

»Where there are triads within the physical therapy world

»How you can influence the body in unique ways if you focus on a triad

»What are all the triadoxes that can be found in physical therapy

»Why are these triads so valuable to the body

You may have even heard of the term the "sixth sense". Typically the sixth sense is known as something that isn't very describable, something that relates to your intuition. But could there be something else that we could classify as a sixth sense? Within the body we have a system of receptors that are responsible for reacting to specific movements and positions. These are known as the proprioceptors, and our guest today believes these should be known as the sixth sense.

The True Sixth Sense of the Body with Godelieve Babey

We all know about the basic five senses: hearing, taste, touch, sight, and smell. You may have even heard of the term the “sixth sense”. Typically the sixth sense is known as something that isn’t very describable, something that relates to your intuition.

But could there be something else that we could classify as a sixth sense?

Within the body we have a system of receptors that are responsible for reacting to specific movements and positions. These are known as the proprioceptors, and our guest today believes these should be known as the sixth sense.

Why Are Proprioceptors Important?

The proprioceptors are responsible for knowing and understanding where the body is in space. They are receiving stimuli that tells them to turn on and off, how the body should respond to specific inputs, and to protect us from danger (ie injury).

If you think the nervous system is fast with how quickly signals can move from the brain out to the rest of the body, the proprioceptors are even faster!

The problem is, you still have to train the proprioceptors to work properly, otherwise the system can break down at the most inopportune moments.

In this episode, Godelieve Babey and I discuss how these proprioceptors work:

»How the proprioceptors are overseeing the way the body moves in space

»Why training for activities we want to be successful at is important

»How very subtle movements can make a huge difference to the body

»What ways to break down exercise to know if it is beneficial

Do you know what clean skincare ingredients are? In the US, there are minimal regulations for the ingredients used within our skincare products, especially since Europe has over 10,000 ingredients they have banned that we still continue to use here. This can be a problem because our skin is an organ, and is absorbing what we place onto it. So if we are not using clean skincare ingredients, then we can be supplying our body with toxic chemicals without even knowing it! Using clean skincare products is extremely important because of the amount of toxic load our bodies are already facing on a daily basis. The reason we see so many skin issues is typically due to excessive stress to the internal organs, such as the liver, and so the body pushes out what it cannot handle through the skin.

Are all skincare ingredients created equally?

The short answer is no. Like mentioned above, ingredients are not regulated, therefore not all companies try to provide products with the highest quality ingredients. Many skincare products are made from cheap or imitation-type ingredients because it is cheaper for the companies to make their products out of these. Or, some ingredients will be so processed that you lose most of the healthy components to the product itself.

In this episode, Michelle Ornstein discusses many ways to improve the quality of your skincare products:

»What to look for in quality, clean ingredients

»How essential oils within products can benefit the skin

»Why it is important to know the suppliers and growers

»Why using herbs to make products is so powerful

Obviously they train in the water, but they also get started early on with cross training outside of the water, also known as dryland training. This method of training is to help develop the swimmers in a way to be mobile within the water, but also to build strength to increase the power of their kicks and strokes. The reason I am so fascinated with their training methods is because you don't typically see much cross training in youth sports until later stages. Dryland training is extremely beneficial to the swimmers, however it seems every single dryland coach trains in a different way.

The reason I am so fascinated with their training methods is because you don’t typically see much cross training in youth sports until later stages. Dryland training is extremely beneficial to the swimmers, however it seems every single dryland coach trains in a different way.

Why would different styles of Dryland Training matter?

If the goal of training is to keep the swimmers mobile, but also build strength, then the type of training done outside of the water is extremely important. Typically traditional weight lifting leads to a decrease in overall range of motion in the joints, which can cause problems within the water. This is where the training style Markell Lyng uses in her dryland training approach becomes much more beneficial.

Markell takes a look at the movements required to swim well. She then breaks down those movements into different transformational zones that she can then train specifically on to improve overall quality of those movements. However, the likelihood of lifting 500 lbs in her program is nearly never, as she knows this isn’t the style of training that the swimmers need.

In this episode, I talk with Markell about different strategies she uses in her training to improve her athletes. This is the same strategy she used to help Simone Manual with her very successful Olympic run.

For a long time, this fear was more commonly found on the east coast where ticks are much more present. But with the changes of weather patterns, ticks are becoming more and more common even on the west coast. So why are ticks such a big deal? Aren't they just a tiny little bug that burrows themselves into your skin until they are done feeding? Ticks are a problem because they commonly carry a disease known as Lyme Disease. For a long time, we didn't have very efficient ways of treating Lyme Disease. In fact, the actual diagnosis process for Lyme has been very inaccurate, which means many cases of Lyme have gone on for far too long without proper diagnosis.

Treating Lyme Disease with Dr. Darin Ingels

For those of you who spend time outdoors, one of the fears we run into is a tick bite. For a long time, this fear was more commonly found on the east coast where ticks are much more present. But with the changes of weather patterns, ticks are becoming more and more common even on the west coast.

So why are ticks such a big deal? Aren’t they just a tiny little bug that burrows themselves into your skin until they are done feeding?

Ticks are a problem because they commonly carry a disease known as Lyme Disease. For a long time, we didn’t have very efficient ways of treating Lyme Disease. In fact, the actual diagnosis process for Lyme has been very inaccurate, which means many cases of Lyme have gone on for far too long without proper diagnosis.

What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease?

The big problem with treating Lyme Disease is that the symptoms can prevent itself in many different ways, and it is a master at masking itself as something else. Unless you receive what is known as the “bulls-eye rash” from the initial bite, you can go a long time (even years) without knowing what is wrong with you.

Below are some signs and symptoms to look out for if you have been in contact with a tick, or suspect Lyme:

  1. Rashes- This is typically the bulls-eye rash that is found from a tick bite. If you do see this, take a picture to show the doctor, and get checked out immediately
  2. Fatigue- The initial symptoms of Lyme can mimic what you would experience with the flu. A very large percentage of people experience tiredness, exhaustion, or lack of energy.
  3. Achy, Stiff, or Swollen Joints- Many times Lyme causes inflammation within your body, which can elevate achy, stiff, or swollen joints.
  4. Night Sweats and Sleep Disruption- You may wake up with achy joints, or possibly have temperature fluctuations causing night sweats and other disruptions to your sleep.
  5. Cognitive Decline- You may notice that you have issues recalling memories, or maybe you struggle with concentrating. There are many different cases for cognitive decline that has been correlated with Lyme
  6. Headaches, Dizziness, Fever- More common flu symptoms that you may have when first contracting Lyme. Over 50% of cases report having flu-like symptoms.
  7. Sensitivity to Light and Vision Issues- Having a hard time in well-lit areas can be a sign that your body is trying to fight Lyme Disease.
  8. Heart Problems- Lyme Disease can enter the tissues of the heart, causing chest pains, heart palpitations, light-headedness, and shortness of breath

Where can Lyme Disease be found?

Lyme Disease has been found on every content in the world, except Antarctica. The most common way we know of to contract Lyme is via a tick bite, however there are theories that any bug that transmits blood can also spread Lyme (such as mosquitoes).

Not all ticks are infected though. Just because you may find one on your body, does not necessarily mean that you will have Lyme Disease. There are testing centers where you can send your tick to test for Lyme and other pathogens. You can find a few of these testing centers down in the shownotes.

Treating Lyme Disease

Dr. Darin Ingels ND is a practicing physician who has Lyme Disease himself. He has worked with many patients to help reduce overall symptomology of Lyme Disease, and has an upcoming book on his approach to treating Lyme Disease. Listen in to this episode to learn some steps on how to treat the disease.

Treating Lyme Disease with Dr. Darin Ingels
For those of you who spend time outdoors, one of the fears we run into is a tick bite. For a long time, this fear was more commonly found on the east coast where ticks are much more present. But with the changes of weather patterns, ticks are becoming more and more common even on the west coast.

So why are ticks such a big deal? Aren't they just a tiny little bug that burrows themselves into your skin until they are done feeding?

Ticks are a problem because they commonly carry a disease known as Lyme Disease. For a long time, we didn't have very efficient ways of treating Lyme Disease. In fact, the actual diagnosis process for Lyme has been very inaccurate, which means many cases of Lyme have gone on for far too long without proper diagnosis.
What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease?
The big problem with treating Lyme Disease is that the symptoms can prevent itself in many different ways, and it is a master at masking itself as something else. Unless you receive what is known as the "bulls-eye rash" from the initial bite, you can go a long time (even years) without knowing what is wrong with you.

Below are some signs and symptoms to look out for if you have been in contact with a tick, or suspect Lyme:

* Rashes- This is typically the bulls-eye rash that is found from a tick bite. If you do see this, take a picture to show the doctor, and get checked out immediately
* Fatigue- The initial symptoms of Lyme can mimic what you would experience with the flu. A very large percentage of people experience tiredness, exhaustion, or lack of energy.
* Achy, Stiff, or Swollen Joints- Many times Lyme causes inflammation within your body, which can elevate achy, stiff, or swollen joints.
* Night Sweats and Sleep Disruption- You may wake up with achy joints, or possibly have temperature fluctuations causing night sweats and other disruptions to your sleep.
* Cognitive Decline- You may notice that you have issues recalling memories, or maybe you struggle with concentrating. There are many different cases for cognitive decline that has been correlated with Lyme
* Headaches, Dizziness, Fever- More common flu symptoms that you may have when first contracting Lyme. Over 50% of cases report having flu-like symptoms.
* Sensitivity to Light and Vision Issues- Having a hard time in well-lit areas can be a sign that your body is trying to fight Lyme Disease.
* Heart Problems- Lyme Disease can enter the tissues of the heart, causing chest pains, heart palpitations, light-headedness, and shortness of breath

Where can Lyme Disease be found?
Lyme Disease has been found on every content in the world, except Antarctica. The most common way we know of to contract Lyme is via a tick bite, however there are theories that any bug that transmits blood can also spread Lyme (such as mosquitoes).

Not all ticks are infected though. Just because you may find one on your body, does not necessarily mean that you will have Lyme Disease. There are testing centers where you can send your tick to test for Lyme and other pathogens. You can find a few of these testing centers down in the shownotes.
Treating Lyme Disease
Dr. Darin Ingels ND is a practicing physician who has Lyme Disease himself. He has worked with many patients to help reduce overall symptomology of Lyme Disease, and has an upcoming book on his approach to treating Lyme Disease. Listen in to this episode to learn some steps on how to treat the disease.

Ryan Glatt has been feverishly studying cognitive neuroscience and has been incorporating what he has learned to improve neurofunction based off of different exercise or movement modalities. He has been incorporating the use of different cues for different types of brain function, along with various training types that are more catered to what the individual needs. An example of this would be keeping the overall heart rate exertion of someone with anxiety under 80%. It is these individualized training protocols that are needed to greatly enhance the movement capabilities of the people we work with.

What is Neuroscience?

Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system within the body. Most neuroscientists focus on the brain and its overall impact on cognitive function and behavior. Since the brain is extremely complicated, there are many subdivisions of neuroscience that study anything from behavior, to cognition, to cultural beliefs.

There currently are very few people who are connecting the cognitive and behavior aspect with movement quality. This is why talking with Ryan was so fascinating, because he is actually testing out different methods to see how different people react to specific modalities and cues.

What does this mean for you? Basically, different exercises and improve or limit your brain function. We as professionals need to start studying this so that we can better benefit you. But this episode is a great place to start!

Expanding the Yoga Outreach with Gravity Lift

When you think of yoga, what do you think of? Do you think of stretching, or maybe you think of someone deep in the Himalayas who floats while meditating and can withstand the freezing temperatures with just a robe on.

What if there was more to yoga than just the above? Could the act of moving and stretching be just a small component of the entirety of a yoga practice?

Joining us for this week’s episode is Antonella and Jordan of Gravity Lift Yoga. They are a dynamic yoga duo who provide more to their classes than just the “stretch” portion. They are on a mission to build a community within the yoga world, while also teaching all 8 limbs of yoga.

What are the 8 limbs of Yoga?

The 8 limbs in yoga is a guideline on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. The act of Asana (or yoga postures) which we typically think of in a yoga class is only 1 of the 8 limbs. Many teachers sprinkle in other limbs within the Asana practice. A really well designed class touches all 8 limbs in one way or another.

Listed below are the 8 limbs and what they mean:

Yamas- The Yamas represent the moral code for life. This includes non-violence, truthfulness, non-stealing, non-possessiveness, and sexual restraint.

Niyamas- The Niyamas are the rules of personal behavior. This would include purity, contentment, discipline, spiritual studies, and devotion.

Asana- This is the practice we typically see in a yoga class. The Asana are the movements and postures. These movements are designed to ready your body for stillness, or meditation.

Pranayama- This is the breathing techniques that are taught to to help control your prana, or life force within the body.

Pratyahara- This is where you gain control over your external influences and to be in control of your senses.

Dharana- This is in reference to your ability to hold concentration and focus.

Dhyana- Dhyana is the actual practice of meditation.

Samadhi- This is the limb that we want to achieve. This resembles merging with the divine.

Loren O’Neil is a structural integrator based out of San Diego, California. He has spent years studying how the soft tissue performs within the body, and after receiving over 50 certifications and licenses, has created a unique approach to supporting and helping others in their recovery.

What is Soft Tissue Therapy?

“It is the beginning of helping you to move better and feel better.”

Let’s face it, most people do not spend the time on themselves to effectively work their soft tissue. Soft tissue therapy is focused on improving your soft tissue health (which is most of our body!) and making it a habit for yourself. We as practitioners want to give you the power to take care of yourself, you just need to make the commitment to your own self to work on your mobility.

If you find yourself constantly going to a chiropractor, physical therapist, massage therapist, or trainer, and they keep placing you on stretching protocols, then this episode about structural integration is for you.

Alzheimer’s and Keto Diet

Welcome to 2018! Since this time of year everyone starts to set their health goals and everyone is talking about topics related to wellness, we are starting our first episode talking about 2 different health-related topics: Alzheimer’s and the Keto diet.

Alzheimer’s is one of those interesting diseases that scientists have worked hard to study, but have made very little progress with finding treatment options. Most of the time when the diagnosis is made, the family is told that there isn’t much hope, and eventually the disease will fully take over their mind.

How the Keto Diet can Improve Alzheimer’s Disease

Science has agreed on 1 piece of Alzheimer’s, which is that glucose at some point can’t get into the brain cells to provide the energy the brain needs to function. This is where the keto diet can come in. Ketones are another fuel source that can get through the blood-brain barrier and supply energy to the cells. In the case of Alzheimer’s, this can be the fuel source necessary for improving cognitive function.

Amy Berger has been working with the Keto diet with Alzheimer’s patients for quite some time, and has been able to make significant changes in cognitive function. Listen is as we discuss how this approach can be very beneficial.

Alzheimer's and Keto Diet
Welcome to 2018! Since this time of year everyone starts to set their health goals and everyone is talking about topics related to wellness, we are starting our first episode talking about 2 different health-related topics: Alzheimer's and the Keto diet.

Alzheimer's is one of those interesting diseases that scientists have worked hard to study, but have made very little progress with finding treatment options. Most of the time when the diagnosis is made, the family is told that there isn't much hope, and eventually the disease will fully take over their mind.
How the Keto Diet can Improve Alzheimer's Disease
Science has agreed on 1 piece of Alzheimer's, which is that glucose at some point can't get into the brain cells to provide the energy the brain needs to function. This is where the keto diet can come in. Ketones are another fuel source that can get through the blood-brain barrier and supply energy to the cells. In the case of Alzheimer's, this can be the fuel source necessary for improving cognitive function.

Amy Berger has been working with the Keto diet with Alzheimer's patients for quite some time, and has been able to make significant changes in cognitive function. Listen is as we discuss how this approach can be very beneficial.

The Powerful Blend of HANAH ONE

When it comes to using herbal products to help balance the body from all the stressors and toxins we face on a daily basis, I am a huge fan. It is rare to find an herbal product that doesn’t have a bunch of fillers, so when I caught wind of HANAH ONE, they had my attention.

Even if you had no idea what every single herb did in this blend, you could easily recognize that there are no ingredients that don’t come directly from the earth. This alone makes this type of product unique.

What Makes HANAH ONE Powerful

There is an art form to blending and creating herbal products that most of us don’t realize. Eastern cultures have been using herbs for thousands of years, and they look at many different properties within each herb and how it interacts with other herbs, instead of specific constituents (like Western cultures tend to do).

In this episode of The Powerful Blend of HANAH ONE, Joel Einhorn talks about what goes into making such a powerful rasayana to combat everyday stressors to the western body. Listen in as he goes through the story behind HANAH, and how the herbs work within the body.

Most of the time when an ankle sprain occurs, the rehabilitation process doesn't actually address the best ways for recovery. We see a lot of ankles placed in a brace, then people still continue to do the activities they love. The problem with this type of rehab is that the foot and ankle are made to move, and by not properly addressing the ankle sprain, it starts to lose its mobility and stiffens up. I see a lot of people in my clinic who's ankle and foot don't function properly due to an ankle sprain that wasn't treated correctly.

How to Recover Quickly From an Ankle Sprain

Have you ever suffered from an ankle sprain, and it felt like it was taking forever for it to recover? Most of the time when an ankle sprain occurs, the rehabilitation process doesn’t actually address the best ways for recovery. We see a lot of ankles placed in a brace, then people still continue to do the activities they love.

The problem with this type of rehab is that the foot and ankle are made to move, and by not properly addressing the ankle sprain, it starts to lose its mobility and stiffens up. I see a lot of people in my clinic who’s ankle and foot don’t function properly due to an ankle sprain that wasn’t treated correctly.

Ankle Sprains can Lead to Other Dysfunctions

When the ankle and foot doesn’t move the way it is supposed to, then we see issues develop elsewhere in the body due to compensatory patterns. If you are a really active person, this could be a major cause for knee issues or back issues.

In this video series, I show you some of my at-home process for recovering from an ankle sprain quickly. I get people back to nearly full strength under a week all the time. By Day 6, I was back onto the mountain slopes snowboarding like nothing happened.

1:55 – My goal was to get my ankle back to normal within one week
3:55 – I sprained my ankle snowboarding on Mt Rainier
5:40 – The sprain was basically a double ankle sprain, meaning it was an inversion and eversion sprain
7:40 – If you have an injury to the foot or ankle, you can guarantee there will be compensations in other areas of the body
8:30 – Day 1 was about getting motion in the foot so it didn’t lose range of motion
9:45 – I started Day 2 with standing balance reaches, static walking movements, calf stretches, and knee circles

https://youtu.be/7oQW3qINI4s

14:00 – Day 3 I did lunges, small lunge hops, elastic recoiling, BOSU balance reaches

https://youtu.be/yrLA_iBjvSE

16:45 – On Day 4, I did similar exercises as Day 3, except I did the round side of the BOSU instead of the flat part.

https://youtu.be/vTJla1FOqWM

18:30 – For Day 5, I took Day 4’s exercises and used weights to add an increase in the load. Then I did side to side elastic recoil to fully go into the end range of motion of the ankle to simulate a sprain,

19:30 – Day 6 was the first real test on the slopes, and everything went very well. Day 7 I played a soccer game and there were no issues with the ankle during the game.

I then ask if the family is prepared to make any changes necessary to the way they eat in order to better everyone's health, and I include the children. A lot of the time the response I get is "how would I ever get my kids to stop eating the sugar and the processed food? It tastes too good!" This is a very valid question, and one that not many people have a great response to.

That is until recently.

That is until recently.

Chronic Disease Among Children

The chronic illness rates in children have skyrocketed in the last decade. We are now seeing more diseases manifesting in children that we typically only see in adults. And now there is a reality upon us:

This generation of children is expected to live sicker and die younger than their parents.

In this episode of Combating Chronic Illness in Children, I brought on functional medicine practitioner and holistic doctor, Dr. Madiha Saeed to discuss ways to reverse chronic illness in children, and to set up this generation of kids for success in health. She has a unique approach to her own 4 kids that has worked very well in her household, and part of that is to have open communication for how the body works!

Women go through an entire cycle of hormonal changes every single month, and most women can tell exactly where they are within their cycle based off of their moods. As a women gets closer to menopause, then these hormonal shifts can make some rapid changes to mood, and more. There seems to be a negative connotations built around women's hormones. When a women is angry, we assume she must be "PMS'ing"; when a women is crying a lot, then she is being "really hormonal". This doesn't open up a very safe space for anyone to talk about what is really going on, and how to lessen the impact that these hormonal changes have on a woman.

Preparation for Menopause and Regulating Hormones

If you don’t understand how hormones can affect your moods, then I recommend having a nice chat with a women to learn more. Women go through an entire cycle of hormonal changes every single month, and most women can tell exactly where they are within their cycle based off of their moods. As a women gets closer to menopause, then these hormonal shifts can make some rapid changes to mood, and more.

There seems to be a negative connotations built around women’s hormones. When a women is angry, we assume she must be “PMS’ing”; when a women is crying a lot, then she is being “really hormonal”. This doesn’t open up a very safe space for anyone to talk about what is really going on, and how to lessen the impact that these hormonal changes have on a woman.

It is time to make a change in the way we talk about health. We should never look down upon any issues that have to do with health. Hormonal changes are not something we can completely control, therefore we should not judge someone for going through them. As a male, I cannot sit here and say exactly how someone should or should not behave while going through a big life change such as menopause (which is why I brought on an expert for this episode), but what I can do is create a safe space for the discussion to begin on how to support a woman through this stage of her life.

In this episode of Preparations for Menopause and Regulating Hormones, Laura Paris L.Ac. discusses ways for women to be empowered through their menopause cycle, and how to prepare the body to lessen the impact of the overall changes. She specializes in female health and now helps many women through this stage of their life.

Preparation for Menopause and Regulating Hormones
If you don't understand how hormones can affect your moods, then I recommend having a nice chat with a women to learn more. Women go through an entire cycle of hormonal changes every single month, and most women can tell exactly where they are within their cycle based off of their moods. As a women gets closer to menopause, then these hormonal shifts can make some rapid changes to mood, and more.

There seems to be a negative connotations built around women's hormones. When a women is angry, we assume she must be "PMS'ing"; when a women is crying a lot, then she is being "really hormonal". This doesn't open up a very safe space for anyone to talk about what is really going on, and how to lessen the impact that these hormonal changes have on a woman.

It is time to make a change in the way we talk about health. We should never look down upon any issues that have to do with health. Hormonal changes are not something we can completely control, therefore we should not judge someone for going through them. As a male, I cannot sit here and say exactly how someone should or should not behave while going through a big life change such as menopause (which is why I brought on an expert for this episode), but what I can do is create a safe space for the discussion to begin on how to support a woman through this stage of her life.

22- Why Weight Loss Centers Don’t Work https://summitforwellness.com/22-why-weight-loss-centers-dont-work/ Thu, 09 Nov 2017 14:30:52 +0000 https://summitforwellness.com/?p=4764 https://summitforwellness.com/22-why-weight-loss-centers-dont-work/#respond https://summitforwellness.com/22-why-weight-loss-centers-dont-work/feed/ 0 As I drive around the city, I started to notice that weight loss centers seem to be popping up every couple of blocks. I also noticed that in my Facebook feed, more and more people are trying to sell "weight loss" products that are supposed to be the magical cure to losing weight. There is a common theme within all of these businesses- everyone is trying to lose weight, which means there is a lot of money opportunities within that industry.

Why Weight Loss Centers Don’t Work

As I drive around the city, I started to notice that weight loss centers seem to be popping up every couple of blocks. I also noticed that in my Facebook feed, more and more people are trying to sell “weight loss” products that are supposed to be the magical cure to losing weight. There is a common theme within all of these businesses- everyone is trying to lose weight, which means there is a lot of money opportunities within that industry.

I have dug deep into some of these models for weight loss, and what is very apparent is that these programs work really well for a short amount of time, especially if you have the right amount of money. The problem here is that most people aren’t able to turn these programs into a long lasting lifestyle change.

This does not mean there is something inherently wrong with you if you aren’t able to be successful in the long term for weight loss. This just means that these programs are flawed, and are not teaching you how to succeed in the future.

Let’s make this clear, there is no magical pill for weight loss. There is no ideal protein that will forever change the way your body holds on to weight. If you come to a company that says their magical protein powder, or carbohydrate product, or fat-filled food will fix your weight loss problems, I have one piece of advice for you- RUN.

There are weight loss centers all around where I live, and it is fascinating to see what they promote as an end-all to weight loss. Some push for an Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method, where you use their protein powder and all of their protein-rich food products to “maintain muscle mass while losing the fat”. This may work for some people, but again, protein isn’t the only player when it comes to weight loss. If you are still eating foods that cause inflammatory reactions within the body, then it doesn’t matter how much protein you eat, the excess inflammation will start to catabolize your muscle tissues.

Other centers promote their programs for “Weight Loss for Life”. You buy their pre-made meals at a premium price, and make sure you count your calories daily. Both are not reasonable options to ask of anyone, especially as a life-long option. Once you stop eating their foods, you go back to where you started, unfortunately.

Some centers and clinics offer a hormone drop that helps to lose 1-2lbs per day. They forget to mention that you won’t be eating much food at all, and that messing with hormones can have long lasting effects on your overall health. Plus studies show it isn’t the drops that make you lose weight, it is extremely low calorie diet that you go on. Which also is not sustainable.

100 years ago, “weight loss” was not an issue most people had to worry about. Which means we need to look at a couple main components when it comes to why we gain weight, and that is the quality of the food we eat, the amount of movement (or lack of movement), and the overall health of our body to make sure our digestive systems are working properly, we reduce inflammation, and the body doesn’t start to turn on itself.

In this episode of Why Weight Loss Centers Don’t Work, we talk all about these issues with the weight loss centers and the methods used to sell quick weight loss programs. Listen in as we dive deeper into this topic.

Shownotes

3:00 – Join our free Facebook Group today! Our first live Q&A is the group will be this upcoming week!
3:45 – Submit any questions about female hormones HERE.
4:30 – Have you ever gone on your own weight loss journey, a diet, or have wanted to lose weight?
6:00 – Food should be looked at as a means to provide nutrients to the body
8:00 – Weight gain is not an indicator your body is broken, your body is adapting to its environment
11:00 – Health issues can arise if fat is dropped too quickly. Toxins are stored in fat, and too fast of weight loss will release toxins into the system
12:15 – Too fast of weight loss can also change the metabolic processes within the body
13:00 – Shows like the Biggest Loser give false realities of how fast you can lose weight
15:00 – If you starve yourself, and use sauna suits, and dehydrate yourself quickly, you can lose a ton of weight. But, this is not healthy, and you are more likely to gain it all back
16:40 – HCG drops are shown to not be that effective, plus it messes with your hormones
18:00 – Weight loss centers that promote a special protein to lose weight. Again, this will not fix the weight problem, it is a bandaid for the actual issues
19:30 – Weight loss centers that promote only their products to lose weight are also not sustainable
20:50 – Community is extremely important in order to be successful and to enjoy the process of reaching your weight goals
23:20 – We need to dismiss the idea of a calorie is a calorie. Not all calories are created equal
24:30 – A whole food as nature intended has more nutrients, and in the proper ratios for the body
26:00 – Hunger is a sign your body needs nutrients or water to support itself. If you don’t provide the right nutrients it needs, it will become hungry again
27:30 – Use professionals such as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner to support you in finding your bio-individualized nutritional plan

Cupping has finally made it to the modern world since the last Olympics when many of our nation’s top athletes were sporting the circular bruises. Cupping has been used in places like China for thousands of years, where it has been integrated into their medical care along with injury care. Our guest today has taken some of the traditional cupping roots and integrated it with his functional movement background to come up with a unique approach to functional cupping.

Chris Soterakopoulos is a physical therapist by trade. Most of his career has been in the functional movement world where he analyzes people in all 3 planes of motion. He went into training on how to use cupping to rehab people from injuries, and he converted his teachings into a method that uses the principles of human movement to fully optimize the functional cupping process.

Functional Cupping with Chris Soterakopoulos
Cupping has finally made it to the modern world since the last Olympics when many of our nation's top athletes were sporting the circular bruises. Cupping has been used in places like China for thousands of years, where it has been integrated into their medical care along with injury care. Our guest today has taken some of the traditional cupping roots and integrated it with his functional movement background to come up with a unique approach to functional cupping.

Chris Soterakopoulos is a physical therapist by trade. Most of his career has been in the functional movement world where he analyzes people in all 3 planes of motion. He went into training on how to use cupping to rehab people from injuries, and he converted his teachings into a method that uses the principles of human movement to fully optimize the functional cupping process. You can listen or watch this episode of Functional Cupping with Chris Soterakopoulus to find out more!

Nicole Armbrust PT, OCS, FAFS specializes with the running athletes. Her mission is to improve running performance by utilizing functional movement patterns and mobility drills to increase each person's effectiveness with their strides. This episode is all about how to improve your running performance through movement, mobility, and with our added ebook bonus, nutrition!

How to Improve Running Performance with Nicole Armbrust

Sometimes the best way to release the stress from a long day is to tie up your shoes, grab your heart rate monitor, and go for a long run. I have found that running can be a great way to clear my mind, and to process through ideas much easier without all the distractions of my phone. However, like many of us who run often, at some point you will come down with an injury. For the hardcore runners, how you recover from an injury is extremely important for the lifespan of your running career and your running performance.

I know very few runners who have a solid mobility or stretch program that they do before and after a run. It usually isn’t until after an injury occurs that runners start to implement these types of strategies. However, once they feel better, typically they go back to their old routines. This is where Physical Therapist and Running Specialist Nicole Armbrust comes into play!

Nicole specializes in working with runners. She is a runner herself and has gone through the cycles of injuries and recovery. With her experience with functional movement and her abilities to utilize her specialties and technology to assess the human body, she helps to improve running performance with all of her patients. How does she do this? Listen to How to Improve Running Performance with Nicole Armbrust to find out how!

For the most part, a plant based diet is basically a vegan or vegetarian diet, it is just a new term that is being used as a marketing tool to catch people's attention. A lot of information that is being told about plant based diets is based off of very poor science, or shown in a very particular way to make the data look better than it really is. One of the main culprits of this information is the documentary What The Health, which has been thoroughly debunked by Robb Wolf (his post can be found here) and many others.

Lately, the term plant based diets has been thrown around quite a bit across various media channels. For the most part, a plant based diet is basically a vegan or vegetarian diet, it is just a new term that is being used as a marketing tool to catch people’s attention.

One of the main culprits of this information is the documentary What The Health, which has been thoroughly debunked by Robb Wolf (his post can be found here) and many others.

Due to so much of this information being so far on the wrong side, and my concern of the health of people who decide to follow these claims, I decided I needed to talk with someone who has been down the vegan road before and has felt the impact that these diets can play on the body. Granted, some people do very well on a plant based diet and I don’t want to take anything away from them, but for the majority of the population, there are health concerns and nutrient needs that need to be discussed beforehand. There is a reason that there has never been a civilization that has relied 100% on plant material to survive. All this can be learned in this episode of Plant Based Diet Myth with Lierre Keith!

Do you think your child will feel very good about themselves? This is exactly what a lot of women (some men do this too) all the time when they look in the mirror. If you don't have confidence in your own body image, how will you ever be happy, or find a way to optimize your own health? These are the questions and topics that Jason Seib has no problem discussing. In his business, he works primarily with about 90% females, and even lives in a household full of women and young girls. He gets to watch these interactions within the female mind as an outsider looking in. His goal is to create an environment for his daughters and other young girls to grow up not judging themselves so harshly, and be able to instill positive thoughts into their minds when they see themselves in the mirror. Body awareness and weight loss are big talking points in the world today. What Jason has found that in order to reach the point of sustainable weight loss, it first needs to come from confidence within yourself, and truly understanding your motivation for weight loss. If your motivation is only coming from an extrinsic factor, you will fail. We go over how to be successfull in this episode of Body Image for Women with Jason Seib!

Body Image For Women with Jason Seib
Here's a question- if you have a child, what would happen if you told your kid every single day that they are ugly, their legs look terrible, no one will ever love them, and they aren't good enough? Do you think your child will feel very good about themselves? This is exactly what a lot of women (some men do this too) all the time when they look in the mirror. If you don't have confidence in your own body image, how will you ever be happy, or find a way to optimize your own health?

These are the questions and topics that Jason Seib has no problem discussing. In his business, he works primarily with about 90% females, and even lives in a household full of women and young girls. He gets to watch these interactions within the female mind as an outsider looking in. His goal is to create an environment for his daughters and other young girls to grow up not judging themselves so harshly, and be able to instill positive thoughts into their minds when they see themselves in the mirror.

We hear in the media all the time about the benefits of working out, or going on a specific diet, yet we don't talk about what the soft tissue is and how to take care of it. I know that most people who come into my clinic don't take the time every day to stretch and work on their soft tissue. In fact, stretching routines typically aren't a priority until an injury occurs, and then the routine only lasts until the person is feeling close to normal. What do you think would happen if more people added soft tissue work into their daily routine, similar to brushing and flossing our teeth? We brought on a phenomenal practitioner to talk exactly about these issues. Lenny Parracino has mentored me for many years, and I credit his knowledge with a lot of the direction I have taken my educational path.

Many believe that you only need to avoid gluten if you have Celiac Disease, while others believe that gluten completely disrupts the intestinal lining, regardless if you have Celiac or not. One thing is for sure, developing Celiac doesn't happen overnight, so drawing a hard line in the sand for whether gluten is good for us or not should not be taken so lightly. It is estimated that around 80% of people suffering from Celiac Disease have remained undiagnosed. For many, it could take up to a decade before they are finally diagnosed, and in these cases, they usually have already developed other autoimmunity issues that they are suffering from. In this episode, we talked with Terri Ward about how to screen for Celiac and other gluten-related disorders (hear that, gluten doesn't just cause Celiac Disease!). We also delve in to treatment options, and how to cook with gluten-free options. You can enjoy all this in this episode of Celiac Disease with Terri Ward!

Specifically we spent some time at the southern tip of Chile, near Torres Del Paine which is a piece of Patagonia.
