How To Succeed With Intermittent Fasting with Cynthia Thurlow

Intermittent fasting, sounds like a pretty scary and difficult new weight loss craze that is sweeping the nation.

However, intermittent fasting isn't new, and isn't really the next fad diet. Human history shows that fasting has always been a part of livelihoods. Especially in times of feast or famine, you could go days without food, then have an abundance of food.

The term "intermittent" means to occur at different intervals. In the form of intermittent fasting, this means that we are fasting for a set period of time, and feeding in another set period of time.

For instance, you may fast (not eat) for 16 hours, then eat in an 8 hour time window. 16 hours can seem like a long time, but if you are sleeping during half of it, then you just don't eat the first part and last part of each day.

Using Herbal Flavors to Support the Body with Kris Vaughan

Did you know that there are medicinal properties in many of the spices you have in your kitchen?

For thousands of years, different cultures have used herbal flavors to stimulate different organs and systems in the body.

For example, sour or bitter flavors are used to increase digestive juices in your body so you break down your food fully. This is why many cultures eat fermented foods right before their meals.

Herbal flavors are an easy way to learn how to utilize herbs for different symptoms you may be experiencing. Instead of learning about every single use case of every herb, you only have to remember their flavor!

Are the Herbal Flavors Different Than What Our Tongue Tastes?

There actually are differences in the herbal flavors and the taste of the herb itself.

What we taste on our tongue is dependent upon our taste buds and our preferences. For instance, what is sweet to one person might not be that sweet to someone else.

Herbal flavors aren't too much different, the fact is that most of us have lost touch with how things are supposed to taste. We are so accustomed to the taste of processed foods, that we have forgotten the real taste of plants.

But there are some subtle differences. Some herbs might be considered sweet, but taste bitter. The more you use herbs though, the better your taste buds are at differentiating the tastes.

Here are the 5 herbal flavors found in Western Herbalism:

  • Bitter
  • Sour
  • Sweet
  • Salty
  • Pungent

How Nourishing the Brain Helps the Entire Body with Greg Garrard

If you have been listening to the podcast for awhile now, you may have noticed that most of our guests focus on the gut. This is because if the gut isn't functioning well, and not digesting food, then how can we expect the rest of the body to work right.

However, we still have a big player in the game that is often overlooked. That player is our brain.

While the gut may be the epicenter of dysfunction, the brain is the command center for the body. If the brain isn't doing its job, then nothing will work right.

Why Is Nourishing the Brain So Important For Health

The brain (and nervous system) have a lot of functions in the body. Some of the main functions include:

  • Regulating Hormones
  • Communicates with organs to turn on/off functions, such as digestion
  • Controls movement of our limbs
  • Allows us to have memories and communicate with others

In order for all these functions to work, the brain needs nourishment. By providing specific nutrients, and also limiting ourselves to environmental stressors, we can optimize how the brain works.

What to Expect From This Episode

Greg Garrard is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who focuses on nourishing the brain.

In this episode, you will learn:

» What systems in the body the brain is responsible for

» Which foods and nutrients help to support the brain

» How environmental stressors can impact brain health

» Where do we focus first, healing the gut or nourishing the brain



Shownotes

  • [3:15] Why did Greg get interested in Nutrition and Brain Health
  • [8:00] It is pretty amazing how people don't recognize the state of health their body is in until the straw breaks the camel's back
  • [9:00] Did Greg's depression come from his inability to do the activities he loved, or from his state of health
  • [12:15] Most of our guests focus on gut health, what is Greg looking for when assessing the brain
  • [15:30] Are there specific symptoms you are looking for that is related to brain health
  • [21:30] Since hydration is so important, what are some ways to help people hydrate without stripping minerals from the body
  • [22:00] Here is a simple way to make Sole water
  • [23:45] What are some of the important nutrients needed to optimize the brain
  • [28:45] Are there environmental factors that can impact the brain as well
  • [35:30] We have had Brian Hoyer on to talk about EMFs and 5G
  • [38:30] If you need nutrients to support the brain, but the gut can't function well if the brain isn't working right, then do you start supporting the brain first, or the gut
  • [42:30] Head injuries can also influence the way the brain is functioning. You can listen more here

From injuries to arthritis, these ailments can prevent you from doing what you love. Regenerative Injection Therapy can be a great alternative to surgery for many of these ailments.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://summitforwellness.com/73-alternatives-to-surgery-for-orthopedic-injuries-with-dr-jum-funk/">73- Alternatives to Surgery for Orthopedic Injuries with Dr Jum Funk</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://summitforwellness.com">Summit For Wellness</a>.</p>

Alternatives to Surgery for Orthopedic Injuries with Dr Jum Funk

In the US, orthopedic ailments are the most common reason that people go to a medical professional. In fact, it is about 1 in 7 people have some sort of orthopedic complaint.

Many of these conditions are treated with medication or surgery, while chiropractic or physical therapy may also be an option.

If medication or therapy does not work, then usually the next step is to see the surgeon.

However, there are alternative methods that can be a better option before going under the knife. This methods are called Regenerative Injection Therapy.

What Is Regenerative Injection Therapy

Regenerative Injection Therapies are methods used to inject certain solutions into the problem area to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms.

These injections include:

  • Perineural Injection Therapy (PIT)
  • Prolotherapy
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
  • Stem Cells

You probably have heard about some of these options before, so let's break down what each one of them are used for:

Perineural Injection Therapy

Perineural Injection Therapy is used to treat inflamed or injured nerves. This in many cases is used as one of the first steps in regenerative injection therapy because it is low risk and costs a lot less.

Perineural injections help to calm the nerves down so that the practitioner can see the underlying cause of the pain. For some people, this is all they need, while others might have to go to the next type of injection.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is used to stimulate the body into healing a certain area of the body.

To use Prolotherapy, it is injected directly where the pain is located. It consists of an irritant that tricks the body into repairing the tissues. This can be really great for tendons or ligaments.

When it comes to Prolotherapy side effects, there is minimal risk. Sometimes you receive swelling in the area, and it can feel worse before it gets better.

Platelet-Rich Plasm (PRP)

PRP injections use the platelets found in blood to stimulate healing.

Platelets have a protein called growth factor which are used in the healing of injuries. PRP injections concentrate the growth factors usually 5-10x more than what is found in normal blood.

PRP injection side effects again are pretty minimal. Usually if there is any side effect, it is swelling in the region the injection took place.

Stem Cells

Stem Cells are the top of the line when it comes to regenerative injection therapies.

It uses your own stem cells to remove damaged cells in the painful region and create new healthy cells. Stem cells are the foundation for every single cell in the body, therefore it is needed for the creation of healthy cells.

The side effects for stem cell injections varies based on the uses of the stem cells. Since stem cells can be used for orthopedic ailments, bone marrow transplants, and even organ transplants, the side effects can be drastically different.

What to Expect From This Episode

Dr. Jum Funk specializes in the use of Regenerative Injection Therapies, and uses all 4 of these therapies in her practice.

In this episode, you will learn:

» How regenerative injection therapy is used for different ailments

» When to chose one injection over another

» How to measure results and success rate

» Can these treatments even be used for ailments such as arthritis



Shownotes

  • [3:00] What got Dr Jum Funk interested in Regenerative Injection Therapy
  • [6:10] When it comes to health conditions, what conditions is regenerative injection therapy good and not good for
  • [7:30] Regenerative Injection Therapy should be one of the first options for recovery before we look into surgical procedures
  • [9:00] What are the differences between the different injection therapies that are available
  • [9:30] Perineural injections helps for the superficial nerves
  • [11:00] Once the perineural injections reduces pain, then she goes more towards prolotherapy
  • [11:40] If prolotherapy isn't working, then Dr Jum Funk will switch over to either PRP or Stem Cell
  • [14:45] With PIT therapy, patients can feel a change pretty quickly. PRP or stem cell can take much longer to notice a difference
  • [19:00] What does the actually process of extracting stem cells feel like
  • [21:00] Do you rely on the body to create the correct tissues for the area you are working on, and hoping it doesn't create tissues that aren't helpful to the body
  • [24:00] It is currently believed there are no side effects for regenerative injection therapy, is this what you have found as well
  • [26:15] If someone has autoimmunity and you inject stem cells into their body, will their body attack those stem cells
  • [28:30] What is considered to be a “success” for regenerative injection therapies
  • [33:00] Patients will have a different scale of success because if you reduce their pain, usually they are happy
  • [36:00] If these therapies are used before going to a chiropractor or physical therapy, it can help reduce the inflammation so the therapists can help your body even more
  • [37:30] Does insurance cover the costs of regenerative injection therapies, or is it cash only
  • [43:00] You can spend $700 on a new phone that lasts maybe 2 years, or use that money to remove your pain for a couple decades

From doctor visits, to meetings with the school counselors, to getting your kids to follow directions, this can really wear you down. So what are some ways to support your child and yourself? Learn more in this episode.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://summitforwellness.com/72-how-to-support-children-with-add-adhd-with-tara-hunkin/">72- How to Support Children with ADD/ADHD with Tara Hunkin</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://summitforwellness.com">Summit For Wellness</a>.</p>

How to Support Children with ADD and ADHD with Tara Hunkin

Are you a parent who has a child with ADD or ADHD, or any form of neurodevelopmental disorder? If so, then you already know how difficult it can be to raise a child with these conditions.

The rates of children being diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder has been skyrocketing in the past couple of decades. Around 11% of children are diagnosed with either ADD or ADHD.

The question people want answered is, why? Are the diagnostic procedures better than they used to be? Or are there now different levels of ADD and ADHD, so more kids are diagnosed? Or maybe our environment or genetics plays a role.

What we do know is that these kids aren't getting the full support that they deserve because of all the unknowns to these disorders. Parents do the best that they can, and as more information comes out, it is up to us to get the information into the parents' hands.

What Are Some Ways to Support a Child with ADD or ADHD

The conventional methods of treating ADD and ADHD is to use different forms of medication. Medication can be a fantastic way to instantly know whether you are working with a neurodevelopmental disorder or not because the results are pretty instant.

But there can be other methods of trying to keep the children focused (and less wild). Sometimes it is best to use multiple different methods to see what works the best for your child:

  • Neurofeedback Therapy
  • Changing diets and improving overall nutrition
  • Looking at overall gut health and see if that is changing brain function

These are just some options, and we discuss more in this episode. Tara Hunkin shares with us a lot of insights into how to manage your child, and ways to help them improve:

As a parent with a child who has ADD or ADHD (or any other neurodevelopmental disorder), you may be stressed trying to find the best ways to support your child. From doctor visits, to meetings with the school counselors,



How to Support Children with ADD and ADHD with Tara Hunkin



Are you a parent who has a child with ADD or ADHD, or any form of neurodevelopmental disorder? If so, then you already know how difficult it can be to raise a child with these conditions.



The rates of children being diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder has been skyrocketing in the past couple of decades. Around 11% of children are diagnosed with either ADD or ADHD.



The question people want answered is, why? Are the diagnostic procedures better than they used to be? Or are there now different levels of ADD and ADHD, so more kids are diagnosed? Or maybe our environment or genetics plays a role.



What we do know is that these kids aren't getting the full support that they deserve because of all the unknowns to these disorders. Parents do the best that they can, and as more information comes out, it is up to us to get the information into the parents' hands.



What Are Some Ways to Support a Child with ADD or ADHD



The conventional methods of treating ADD and ADHD is to use different forms of medication. Medication can be a fantastic way to instantly know whether you are working with a neurodevelopmental disorder or not because the results are pretty instant.



But there can be other methods of trying to keep the children focused (and less wild). Sometimes it is best to use multiple different methods to see what works the best for your child:



* Neurofeedback Therapy* Changing diets and improving overall nutrition* Looking at overall gut health and see if that is changing brain function*



These are just some options, and we discuss more in this episode. Tara Hunkin shares with us a lot of insights into how to manage your child, and ways to help them improve:



» What are causing increases in the neurodevelopmental rates



» What symptoms you should be looking for with your young children



» Tests that very child should do to make sure their brain is functioning well

5G is Here, But is it Dangerous To Our Health with Brian Hoyer

The 5G network is on its way, and soon all major cities will have 5G towers on every single block.

That isn't an exaggeration, while 5G frequencies are much more powerful than previous frequencies, the range at which it travels is much shorter.

It is estimated that there will be a 5G tower on nearly every single block in all major cities. This will mean there will be more radio frequency radiation available for our bodies.

So why is 5G being installed around the world? And since this is a train that can't be stopped, what can we do to protect our body from the radiation?

Why Are 5G Towers Being Built Around the World?

5G is ultra high frequency, which allows us to transmit data much faster than previous frequencies.

4G uses under 5 gigahertz, where as 5G uses between 24 to 90 gigahertz. As you can see, that is a very significant different in strength.

There have been hundreds of peer reviewed studies that have looked at the health impacts from radio frequencies. Some of the health implications linked to RF include:

  • Infertility/Sterility
  • Cancer
  • DNA Damage

It was actually labeled by the World Health Organization as a possible carcinogen (meaning cancer causing), so this type of data is not new news.

In this podcast episode, Brian Hoyer, our EMF expert, teaches us how these frequencies impact the body. He also talks about possible links from exposure to EMFs and mineral depletion in the body.

He talks about:

» What it was like to be in an area where there were 0 radio waves

» How EMF exposure can deplete minerals

» Can EMF exposure be reversed, and how to help the body to heal

» What we can do to shield ourselves from 5G exposure

Are Current Concussion Protocols Truly Effective with Dr. Brandon Brock

If you have played any sports, there is a good chance you may have suffered from a mild concussion. While one mild concussion might not be too devastating to the brain, repeated injuries are where the concerns happen.

When you receive one mild concussion, naturally your body should be able to fully heal within 3 months. But, this timeline can change depending on your diet, external stimuli, and how quickly you go back to the sport.

You see, the traditional concussion protocols have you rest for about 1-2 weeks, until symptoms disappear. Some symptoms, such as dizziness and headaches, can go away pretty quickly. This can give a false sense of being “in the clear”.

But there are a lot of other systems in the body impacted by head trauma, and while some symptoms seem to get better, what's happening in the body can be a whole different story.

What Happens to the Body When a Brain Injury Occurs

When the brain initially gets injured, inflammation occurs to try and clear out anything that can harm the brain.

This inflammation opens up the blood-brain barrier, which in turn also opens up the gut barrier. While both of these are open, the immune system is on high alert.

If the inflammation is still occurring, and you get hit again, this can cause the body to start attacking itself, similar to an autoimmune situation.

There can also be damage to the pituitary stalk, which can influence hormonal systems in the body.

In this podcast episode, Dr. Brandon Brock goes much more into detail about how these systems work. He also talks about how to support yourself so you don't get reoccurring inflammation.

» Why the current grading system for severity of concussions doesn't help the recovery process

» How a concussion impacts the way a brain functions, and how the rest of the body functions

» Ways to approach concussion protocols other than “just rest”

» How to better screen athletes and create risk factor levels so that athletes don't ruin their brain forever

Why Are We Passionate About Helping People Recover From Concussions?

Last fall, we drove out East to watch one of our clients play out their final collegiate football games. We hadn't made the trip out there before, and wanted to see him play in person.

When we watched the team run onto the field, we couldn't help but notice how bandaged up every player was.

You know the KT Tape that became a big deal a couple Olympics ago? Well it seemed like the team bought a lifetime supply because there was more tape and braces on all the players than anyone could have predicted.

While it's sad to see so many young athletes hurting that bad, we pushed it off because it was the end of the season and they would have plenty of time to recover.

Chatting with the team afterwards though made us realize that the injuries they have bandaged up are nothing compared to what's going on in their heads.

Almost every single player we talked to mentioned how much their heads hurt, how they can't wait for the season to be over so the headaches go away. How hard it is to focus because it feels like their skulls are going to split in half.

That's when I realized that we need to do better for these kids. I had heard Dr. Brandon Brock speak previously about how to help those who suffer from concussions, and knew that he would be a great guest to have on the podcast.

Dr. Brock did not disappoint. The current protocols have athletes rest for a week or two. Once their symptoms go away, then they are fine to play again.

Internally, your body says otherwise. Once the headaches stop, there is still a lot of healing left to go before you should play again. If you return too soon, then your body can switch into a constant inflammatory state within your brain.

Spice Up Your Sexual Fire with Jaiya and Ian

The honeymoon stage of a relationship lasts anywhere up to one year. This is the time when the relationship still feels fresh, you keep learning new things about your partner, and the sex is still fun.

Then something changes. Things start to go stale, especially in the bedroom. Sometimes you notice the changes, other times life gets so busy that you don't even notice that the intimacy has dropped.

While we think this won't happen to us, the statistics show that it most likely will happen. It isn't because we don't want to be intimate with the other person, it's because life happens.

But, it doesn't have to be this way. Especially if you understand your partner's erotic blueprint, then you will more likely be able to turn your partner on to keep the intimacy alive!

What Is the Erotic Blueprint

Sexologist Jaiya has created what she calls the Erotic Blueprint. This blueprint breaks down our sexual types into 5 different categories:

  • Energetic
  • Sensual
  • Sexual
  • Kinky
  • Shapeshifter

Most people tend to have a dominant sexual blueprint, but can have other forms they can morph into. To truly know what your blueprint is, then take this quiz.

Jaiya and her partner Ian do a deep dive into these different blueprints, and how to keep the spark alive in your relationship.

In this podcast episode, we talk about:

» Why talking about sex is so taboo, and how can we be more open to people's pleasure points

» How to invigorate your sexual organs so you can experience phenomenal orgasms

» How to understand your partner's blueprint so you can have amazing sex

» What are the downsides of each blueprint, and how to make sure those negative aspects don't rise up in the bedroom



Shownotes

  • [3:35] When Jaiya was a little girl, she was very fascinated by sex which made her want to become a sexologist
  • [4:45] Ian was in a previous marriage, and one of the main issues within that relationship was the sex life
  • [6:15] Ian has no problem admitting that the lack of a sex life was his own fault in the marriage, which impacted his wife
  • [9:00] Why has it been so taboo to talk about the good parts of sex, and why do we hear only the negative aspects or the fear tactics around sex
  • [13:00] How can we change the viewpoints around sex so that people can be more open about what they want, and what they need
  • [17:15] Shame around sex can actually prevent you from fully enjoying the pleasure that you should be receiving from sex
  • [19:30] Sarah experienced a lot of shame around sex from her own upbringing, which has impacted how she experiences sex as an adult
  • [24:15] What is the Erotic Blueprint, and how can it be incorporated into your sexual needs
  • [25:30] There are 5 types within the Erotic Blueprint. The first one is Energetic, and they are turned on by anticipation, teasing, and longing
  • [32:30] Sensual is the second blueprint, and they are ignited by all of their senses
  • [35:30] Sexual is the third blueprint, and these people are turned on by what we would consider to be sex. This means direct penetration, getting directly to the point
  • [41:30] The fourth blueprint is kinky, which is someone who is turned on by taboo, or anything that seems “out of the ordinary” from normal sex
  • [50:45] The final blueprint is called a shapeshifter, who is someone who likes all of the different forms of sex
  • [62:30] With how busy people are, a lot of people have a hard time relaxing into the moment and enjoying the moment
  • [65:00] Knowing your partner's blueprint allows you to create the right mood and space for them to feel comfortable enough to relax into the moment
  • [69:00] The Erotic Blueprint Breakthrough Course is a deep dive into the blueprints and teaches how to use it in real life scenarios
  • [76:00] We all want to make sure that everyone has full consent when it comes to sex

The honeymoon stage of a relationship lasts anywhere up to one year. This is the time when the relationship still feels fresh, you keep learning new things about your partner, and the sex is still fun. Then something changes.



Spice Up Your Sexual Fire with Jaiya and Ian



The honeymoon stage of a relationship lasts anywhere up to one year. This is the time when the relationship still feels fresh, you keep learning new things about your partner, and the sex is still fun.



Then something changes. Things start to go stale, especially in the bedroom. Sometimes you notice the changes, other times life gets so busy that you don't even notice that the intimacy has dropped.



While we think this won't happen to us, the statistics show that it most likely will happen. It isn't because we don't want to be intimate with the other person, it's because life happens.



But, it doesn't have to be this way. Especially if you understand your partner's erotic blueprint, then you will more likely be able to turn your partner on to keep the intimacy alive!



What Is the Erotic Blueprint



Sexologist Jaiya has created what she calls the Erotic Blueprint. This blueprint breaks down our sexual types into 5 different categories:



* Energetic* Sensual* Sexual* Kinky* Shapeshifter



Most people tend to have a dominant sexual blueprint, but can have other forms they can morph into. To truly know what your blueprint is, then take this quiz.



Jaiya and her partner Ian do a deep dive into these different blueprints, and how to keep the spark alive in your relationship.



In this podcast episode, we talk about:



» Why talking about sex is so taboo, and how can we be more open to people's pleasure points



» How to invigorate your sexual organs so you can experience phenomenal orgasms



» How to understand your partner's blueprint so you can have amazing sex



» What are the downsides of each blueprint, and how to make sure those negative aspects don't rise up in the bedroom













Shownotes



* [3:35] When Jaiya was a little girl, she was very fascinated by sex which made her want to become a sexologist* [4:45] Ian was in a previous marriage, and one of the main issues within that relationship was the sex life* [6:15] Ian has no problem admitting that the lack of a sex life was his own fault in the marriage, which impacted his wife* [9:00] Why has it been so taboo to talk about the good parts of sex, and why do we hear only the negative aspects or the fear tactics around sex* [13:00] How can we change the viewpoints around sex so that people can be more open about what they want, and what they need* [17:15] Shame around sex can actually prevent you from fully enjoying the pleasure that you should be receiving from sex* [19:30] Sarah experienced a lot of shame around sex from her own upbringing, which has impacted how she experiences sex as an adult* [24:15] What is the Erotic Blueprint, and how can it be incorporated into your sexual needs* [25:30] There are 5 types within the Erotic Blueprint.

Holistic Treatment For Chronic Skin Conditions with Jennifer Fugo

Have you ever met someone and was about to shake their hand, when you noticed that the skin on the back of their hands was really dry, or looked “weird”? It can be a really uncomfortable moment for you, but imagine how the other person must feel in that moment.

While that example could be considered “extreme”, it was a real life example that our guest Jennifer Fugo has gone through.

In fact, 1 in 10 Americans are estimated to have eczema, and the numbers are even higher for having some sort of skin condition. People are suffering with these conditions that are impacting their lives both physically and emotionally.

While many people go directly to the topical creams to try and rid themselves of these conditions, the majority of those people will tell you that the creams aren't a solution that works long term.

What Are Some Alternative Treatment Options For Skin Conditions?

It may seem like the obvious choice to get a steroid cream to try and reduce the flareup of any skin condition, however this may not be the best choice available.

There usually are two different reasons why something is manifesting itself on your skin”

  1. There is an external stimulus that is causing the issue on your skin, such as harsh cleaners and chemicals
  2. The internal workings of your body is out of balance, and your body is pushing stuff up to the surface

The creams that are typically used aren't treating either of these causes. In fact, just using a cream without addressing either of these can almost guarantee that you will have the skin issue show up again in the future.

In this podcast episode, Jennifer Fugo talks about:

» What is making skin conditions become more and more common

» How the digestive system impacts the way we absorb nutrients which feeds into healthy skin

» Why the microbiome is important for the health of the skin, and the body

» What you can do to support yourself through the emotional trauma that skin conditions can put you through



Shownotes

  • [2:00] Jennifer Fugo was fascinated with skin conditions because of her own history with battling skin conditions and eczema
  • [4:45] Having eczema in places that people could see it, such as on the hands, impacted her both physically and emotionally
  • [7:15] The added stress from going to school increased her skin condition symptoms
  • [8:00] Why are skin conditions becoming more and more common, and is conventional treatments helping to eradicate the issues
  • [11:30] Do skin conditions come from issues inside the body, or from external influences
  • [15:00] Which symptoms are pretty universal across most people who have some skin issues
  • [17:00] The digestive system is so important for the health of our skin because that is how we absorb the nutrients needed for the body to work right
  • [19:30] Protein is extremely important for healthy skin, and most people don't get enough of it

There is a stigma that one diet can fix everybody, and every new year people are rushing to figure out which diet is the latest and greatest. However, 95% of people cannot stick with the diet they choose. Why is that?

Katie Garces explains exactly how this happens. It is because we get so caught up in following the directions of the diet that we forget about listening to what our body needs.

Number 3

Kiran Krishnan is a research microbiologist who focuses his attention on the microbiome of the human body

Episode 51- Helping Women to Regulate Hormones and Weight Loss with Cynthia Thurlow

There are many women out there who are suffering from fatigue, weight gain, and hormone dysfunction, and have no idea what to do about it.

This is where Cynthia shines. She does a phenomenal job of supporting women and helping them to discover what is causing these health issues, and how to restore their health back to optimal levels.

In this episode, Amy discusses some of the primary issues that contribute to the development of Type III diabetes, also known as Alzheimer's. She also talks about how fats play into the role of brain health, and how we can incorporate them into our diets without being fearful they will make us fat.

How to Get Rid of Bloating and Gas with Ken Brown

Have you ever experienced excessive bloating or gas, the type where your belly starts to expand outward and it gets uncomfortable? There are many people who have bloating and gas, and don't realize it could be an underlying issue for some health problems.

More often than not, we tend to brush it off as an annoying but somewhat tolerable inconvenience. But as it turns out, bloating and gas are not just mere nuisances. They could be, at the least, an early warning system set off, or worse, a full-scale distress signal from our gut.

If you are presenting with any these two symptoms, it is critical that you start on a more involved and thorough look at your digestive health.

What Are Postbiotics?

We've all heard of prebiotics. We’ve also heard about probiotics. But what are postbiotics?

Postbiotics is an emerging technology in digestive health support. Probiotics are the live bacteria that we ingest through our foods and supplements, and prebiotics are the food that we feed those bacteria with. Postbiotics are the byproducts of those gut bacteria metabolizing the food that we feed them.

These metabolic byproducts are now being associated with many of the health benefits formerly attributed to those gut bacteria. This includes immunomodulation and anti-pathogenic activities. Additionally, they are credited with promoting the growth of more healthy probiotic bacteria.

In this episode of the Summit for Wellness Podcast, we are joined by Gastroenterologist and pharmacological researcher, Dr. Kenneth Brown, where he helps us understand:

» the complex interactions not only in our microbiome, but in our larger multibiome

» the digestive mechanisms that results in gas and bloating symptoms

» how natural and lifestyle-based recommendations should be the first go-to measure for relieving bloating and gas

» and how his flagship postbiotic- and polyphenol-containing protocol, Atrantil, can help relieve more tenacious cases of gas and bloating



 

Shownotes

  • [01:36] Dr. Ken Brown’s conventional gastroenterology beginnings in pharmaceutical research evolved into gut health advocacy, bridging the gap between medical and natural science
  • [04:42] Today, we are witnessing an exponential growth of autoimmune digestive issues, particularly in the US
  • [06:32] There is a distinction between the different types of bloating and gas, the most problematic of which is described as “trapped bloating.”
  • [08:50] Trapped bloating may be associated with 1) SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, 2) autoimmune conditions such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, or 3) an imbalance in the resident “multi-biome” of the colon
  • [14:40] Strategies for addressing bloating issues include diet, sleep, stress management and feeding the gut bacteria with postbiotics
  • [20:08] Sleep is a huge determining factor for not only improving your gut health, but also resolving existing gut issues
  • [27:05] Dr. Ken uses his flagship protocol, Atrantil, to relieve bloating and IBS-like symptoms. It is a powerful combination of three polyphenols found in many Mediterranean diets
  • [28:49] Polyphenols are known to be powerful anti-aging and anti-inflammatory agents with mimetic properties
  • [30:07] A daily dose of at least 1000 mg. of polyphenols could be helpful not only to your gut health, but also to your athletic performance
  • [32:34] Four out of five supplements out in the market shelves today do not contain the ingredients and nutrients they claim they do
  • [36:24] Dr. Ken Brown gives us a rapid fire list of the warning signs that tells you that you may need to take a deeper look into your digestive symptoms

How Homeopathy Helps For Detoxing with Dana Ullman

Homeopathy is a practice that has been around for hundreds of years. Many people have some hard opinions on the efficacy of homeopathic remedies, however there are quite a few principles they use that are used in conventional medical practices as well.

Homeopathic remedies are used to help stimulate the immune system to create antibodies for similar illnesses. This process in a way is similar to how allergists will use allergens as a way to build up someone's defense against those allergens.

What many people expect from a remedy is something to have chemical components that can fight off an illness, similar to medication. However, medication is designed to counter an illness, whereas homeopathic remedies are designed to strengthen the internal defenses of the body.

How to Get Started on a Homeopathic Detox

How Homeopathy Helps For Detoxing with Dana Ullman
Homeopathy is a practice that has been around for hundreds of years. Many people have some hard opinions on the efficacy of homeopathic remedies, however there are quite a few principles they use that are used in conventional medical practices as well.
Homeopathic remedies are used to help stimulate the immune system to create antibodies for similar illnesses. This process in a way is similar to how allergists will use allergens as a way to build up someone's defense against those allergens.
What many people expect from a remedy is something to have chemical components that can fight off an illness, similar to medication. However, medication is designed to counter an illness, whereas homeopathic remedies are designed to strengthen the internal defenses of the body.

How to Get Started on a Homeopathic Detox
Homeopathic detox is tailored according to the type/types of toxins you are suspected to have. It is therefore highly recommended that you work with a homeopathic practitioner so that, together, you can both map out what your potential toxic burden is based off of your constellation of symptoms and get the right support you need if you ever need to course correct.

Improve Your Thyroid to Fix Fatigue with Heather and Damian Dube

Have you ever gone through a phase in your life where you gained weight rapidly, or your energy plummeted, or your hair started to fall out? If so, these are some common signs of thyroid dysfunction.

Have you gone to a doctor because of these symptoms to get some labwork done? If so, and everything came back in the normal ranges, then you are in the same boat as many other people. In most cases, doctors are only testing for one marker, known as TSH. This marker doesn't tell the entire story of the thyroid.

In fact, even with a full thyroid panel done, it can give a practitioner a lot of information to work with. However, it still doesn't tell the story of the thyroid. On top of other organ systems in the body that can impact the function of the thyroid, your emotional and mental state can also be a factor.

How to Know What is Impacting the Thyroid

As Heather Dube said in this podcast episode, the path to illness is unique to the person, therefore the path of recovery is also unique to the person. This means that each person can have different things impacting their thyroid.

The important thing to take note on is that we deserve the chance to heal ourselves. There is a lot of shame and guilt around being sick, and Heather and Damian talk a lot about how to adjust your emotions when not feeling well.

In this episode, we talk about:

»What the thyroid is and the main functions in the body

»Some labs to have done to see different biomarkers

»How the emotional component can be more harmful to your health

»Why you should take control of your healing process and get the help you deserve



Shownotes

  • [4:00] Heather first met Damian when he told her how to speed up her acl recovery time through nutrition and supplementation
  • [8:45] Damian talks about how Heather and himself provide different levels of care in their practice to provide better care for clients
  • [10:30] Heather focuses more on healing the mind, whereas Damian focuses more on the science and the labwork for the thyroid
  • [13:15] What is the thyroid and what roles does it play in the body
  • [15:15] Many times people may experience thyroid symptoms but lab panels come back in the normal ranges, what are the problems with labwork and how can we test better
  • [19:15] When interpreting the labwork, you should be using the functional ranges instead of the “normal ranges”
  • [24:45] People can have normal labs, but still don't feel good. This is where sometimes you have to let go of the hard data and go off of how you feel
  • [27:00] Practitioners are not the healer, they are the guide. The healer is inside you, only you know how you feel
  • [30:00] Many doctors and even naturopathic doctors end up throwing medication at the thyroid instead of figuring out the root issues
  • [33:45] Is there any particular diets that you have clients start off with before diving deeper into the foods they are eating
  • [35:00] Your symptoms and illness is unique to you, therefore the pathway out of illness is also unique to you
  • [39:00] Many women feel like they aren't improving very much or very fast, and it gets frustrating to see their husbands who do “everything wrong” and “feel fine”. Can you touch on these feelings and what women should do in these scenarios
  • [46:00] When Heather's life was close to ending, that is when they realized that health is more important than materialistic things. They put all their finances towards figuring out her illness
  • [56:30] What type of women are more prone to coming across thyroid issues
  • [63:00] Are there specific nutrients that are needed to help most people with thyroid issues
  • [64:00] If you have a morning routine that helps keep your thyroid happy and allows you to live a healthy life, what is it

The Hidden Toxins Found In Your Home with Debra Lynn Dadd

There are toxins everywhere in the world, and there is no one that hasn't been exposed to some form of toxin. Even though this may sound depressing, the truth is that we can limit our exposure to toxins.

Not all toxins are made by humans. Even nature tries to poison us in different ways from exposure to toxic fungi to plants and animals that can make us sick.

However, toxins are hidden in plain site within our homes. The mattress cover can contain formaldehyde, many products contain BPA, and many other products contain lists of toxins that can influence our health.

How Can We Eliminate Toxins From The Home

Since we cannot completely free ourselves of toxic exposures (seriously, even if you went to the most remote place on earth, the water will still most likely contain some toxins), the best we can do is to minimize our exposure at home. A great place to start is in our bedrooms where we will spend about 1/3 of our lives.

The key to eliminating anything, from toxins to food, is to take a slow approach to reduce overwhelm. Start by removing a couple of items at a time instead of clearing out the entire house.

So what products should we start with? Debra Lynn Dadd teaches us where to begin in this episode. We talk about:

»What are some of the common toxins found in the home

»How toxins influence our health

»Where to find good alternatives to these toxic products

»Resources to learn more about toxins, how labels can be misleading, and more



Shownotes

  • [2:15] Debra has been toxic-free in her home for over 40 years
  • [6:30] Most people spend 1/3 of their lives in their bedroom, so removing the toxins from where you sleep is a great place to start
  • [9:00] There are many products that don't have to label toxins in their products because there isn't any universal labeling laws
  • [10:45] What is the point of having all of these harsh chemicals in products
  • [14:15] Studies have discovered that children are born with more than 200 toxins already in their body
  • [21:00] In Debra's Book, Toxic Free, she has lists of common products in the house and what chemicals can be found in them
  • [24:30] Does smoke from Vape get into the walls similar to how cigarette smoke does
  • [28:00] Our manufacturing processes are advancing faster than the body can adapt to the toxic exposure
  • [29:15] What are some products in the bathroom that contain lots of toxic chemicals
  • [31:30] Do toothbrushes or pastes have any chemicals to be worried about
  • [33:30] Are there specific things on labels that people should be looking for on labels to avoid toxins

How to Improve Your Performance Through Breath Using the Wim Hof Method with Bob Soulliere

How often do you think about breathing? During the day, probably not very much, but you probably notice it when you are doing any kind of strenuous activity. However, we breathe all day long, and it is a vital function for our survival.

We follow training protocols to improve our strength and cardio capabilities. When we don't feel great, we look for natural remedies or medications to make us feel better. There are so many ways that we try to improve our health, yet when was the last time you purposely worked to improve the way you breathe?

Oxygen is important to the body, we all know that. Without it for a couple of minutes, we can lose brain function or even cause death. Oxygen helps to transport nutrients through the body, flushes out toxins, and creates energy.

The Wim Hof Method is a fantastic way to improve the way you breathe. Through these methods, you can retrain your body to better utilize oxygen and to strengthen the muscles needed to breathe efficiently.

Where Did the Wim Hof Method Come From

Wim Hof is a crazy daredevil who has broken many world records, 26 to be exact. His feats range from staying submerged in ice baths for hours, to climbing Mt Everest in nothing but shorts and shoes.

His ability to complete these feats is based on his control of his breath. Through breathing, he can regulate internal body temperature and control his mind to put off the sensations of cold and pain.

In this episode, Bob Soulliere and I talk about the Wim Hof Method:

»Why is it so important to practice our breathing techniques when we naturally breathe every day

»How breath can control your nervous system and activate the vagus nerve

»What is so important about exposure to the cold

»Bob takes us through a quick introduction of a breathing technique session

  • [21:30] How does breathing influence the nervous system and allows the body to switch into a parasympathetic state (rest and digest state)
  • [29:30] When there is inflammation in the gut, this can cause issues in allowing the diaphragm to move the way it is supposed to which impacts our ability to breathe properly

How to Improve Your Performance Through Breath Using the Wim Hof Method with Bob Soulliere
How often do you think about breathing? During the day, probably not very much, but you probably notice it when you are doing any kind of strenuous activity. However, we breathe all day long, and it is a vital function for our survival.
We follow training protocols to improve our strength and cardio capabilities. When we don't feel great, we look for natural remedies or medications to make us feel better. There are so many ways that we try to improve our health, yet when was the last time you purposely worked to improve the way you breathe?
Oxygen is important to the body, we all know that. Without it for a couple of minutes, we can lose brain function or even cause death. Oxygen helps to transport nutrients through the body, flushes out toxins, and creates energy.
The Wim Hof Method is a fantastic way to improve the way you breathe. Through these methods, you can retrain your body to better utilize oxygen and to strengthen the muscles needed to breathe efficiently.
Where Did the Wim Hof Method Come From
Wim Hof is a crazy daredevil who has broken many world records, 26 to be exact. His feats range from staying submerged in ice baths for hours, to climbing Mt Everest in nothing but shorts and shoes.
His ability to complete these feats is based on his control of his breath. Through breathing, he can regulate internal body temperature and control his mind to put off the sensations of cold and pain.
In this episode, Bob Soulliere and I talk about the Wim Hof Method:
»Why is it so important to practice our breathing techniques when we naturally breathe every day
»How breath can control your nervous system and activate the vagus nerve
»What is so important about exposure to the cold
»Bob takes us through a quick introduction of a breathing technique session

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

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

Fixing Your Fatigue with Evan Hirsch

Many people are starting to suffer from a condition known as chronic fatigue. Chronic fatigue is defined as fatigue that doesn't go away with rest.

Fatigue is a very broad topic that can have many different causes. Naturally we feel some levels of fatigue from the stress of daily life, but in many cases this should be remedied with adequate rest. Therefore chronic states of exhaustion is caused by something more underlying, such as an undiagnosed illness.

What Can Cause a Chronic State of Fatigue

When looking for the root cause of fatigue issues, it can be very hard to go off of symptoms alone. Many symptoms can express themselves in different forms of illnesses. This is why Dr. Evan Hirsch likes to run lab tests to rule out these illnesses.

Fixing Your Fatigue with Evan Hirsch
Many people are starting to suffer from a condition known as chronic fatigue. Chronic fatigue is defined as fatigue that doesn't go away with rest.
Fatigue is a very broad topic that can have many different causes. Naturally we feel some levels of fatigue from the stress of daily life, but in many cases this should be remedied with adequate rest. Therefore chronic states of exhaustion is caused by something more underlying, such as an undiagnosed illness.
What Can Cause a Chronic State of Fatigue
When looking for the root cause of fatigue issues, it can be very hard to go off of symptoms alone. Many symptoms can express themselves in different forms of illnesses. This is why Dr. Evan Hirsch likes to run lab tests to rule out these illnesses.
So what are some of the most common causes for a loss in overall energy? It can be caused by:

* Mold toxicity (you can learn more about mold toxicity here)
* Lyme Disease (we talk a lot about this in episode 31)
* Epstein Barr
* Bartonella

All of these can be difficult to detect, but with the proper testing, and the proper practitioner working with you, they can determine how to fix your fatigue!

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

Sicker by the Generation with Michelle Perro and Vincanne Adams

You may have noticed that we have quite a few episodes that are focused on children and ways to improve their health. In fact, it saddens me that there are so many children out there who are suffering from conditions with little understanding of why it is happening. This is why we keeping bringing up the topic about ways to make children healthy again.

I focus on children a lot because they aren't in the best position to know what's best for themselves. They go off of what they have been taught, so it is important as adults that we stay up to date with why each generation is getting sicker.

A common theme that you may have heard between episodes is that the food we are eating is not the best for children, or even adults. Processed foods are stripped of nutrients, sanitized in ways we don't want to know about, and are designed to make us snack more often.

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.

»What is a GMO crop and how is it different than other crops

»How pesticides can be a big influence on disease

»What are the controversies behind GMO foods

New Discoveries of the Ocular Microbiome with Dr Harvey Fishman

It seems like every single day we have more advancements in the research done on the human microbiome. Word has spread about the gut microbiome, and the genitalia microbiome. But new development is coming out in areas of the body we least expect it.

Such as the Ocular Microbiome, better known as the bacteria of the eye.

Researchers have discovered an ecosystem of the microbiome within the eye. In these early stages of research, the eye is showing to have a much smaller population of bacteria than other areas of the body, such as the gut. 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

  • [12:30] Even though the overall population of the microbiome is less in the eye than the gut, are ratios similar
  • [13:15] Is the microbiome of the eye found externally, or is it internal as well
  • [15:00] Does taking an internal antibiotic impact the external colonies of the ocular microbiome
  • [16:30] What issues of the eyes can be directly correlated to what is going on at the gut

Researchers have discovered an ecosystem of the microbiome within the eye. In these early stages of research, the eye is showing to have a much smaller population of bacteria than other areas of the body, such as the gut. 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

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

Intuitive Eating with Katie Garces

It has been estimated that over 45 million Americans participate in diets each year, and less than 5% continue to maintain the diet after a couple of months. This means there is a big disconnect between diets, and how to make it a lifestyle change. Katie Garces says that what we are missing in most diets is teaching about intuitive eating.

As we well know, we have lost most of our connection with the food that we eat because food has become very convenient, and we don't have to work hard to get it. Because of the convenience, we start to lose our ability to understand what our body needs in terms of nutrients and foods.

What is Intuitive Eating

Quite simply, intuitive eating is a way to reconnect with your body and understand the nutrients it needs in order to function properly. This can range anywhere from eating seasonally, to eating for your hormonal patterns throughout the month.

In this week's episode, Katie Garces and I discuss:

»What intuitive eating means

»Steps to take to get started with understanding your body's nutritional needs

»How to recognize if a feeling towards food is a craving, or a need

Helping Women to Regulate Hormones and Weight Loss with Cynthia Thurlow

If you are 40 or older, then it is expected that you will gain weight and become increasingly more tired.

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

Helping Women to Regulate Hormones and Weight Loss with Cynthia Thurlow
If you are 40 or older, then it is expected that you will gain weight and become increasingly more tired.
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

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

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

How Emotions Tie into the Foods You Crave with Mollie Doyle

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.

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!

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

»Common habits and how to avoid them

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 this episode, Maryam Henein and I discuss:

»Differences between CBD and THC

»Health benefits on using CBD Oil and different ways to use the oil

»What to look out for when purchasing an oil

»How politics are messing with the CBD Oil industry

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

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

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

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

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

Clean Your Home with the Molekule Air Purifier

We have been talking about mold a lot around here in our past few podcast episodes, and one of the common topics that comes up is the importance of the health of our living spaces. Which means, the air we breathe has a huge impact on our overall health, which is why the Molekule Air Purifier can be extremely helpful to those suffering from airborne pollutants!

Years ago, I went from having all the energy in the world to barely being able to get out of bed each day within a couple week time-frame. It then took months and months before discovering that I was suffering from mold toxicity, and that the air I was breathing was full of mold spores.

Many of us don't even know the damage mold can have to their living environments. And as we have learned in previous episodes, mold symptoms can mimic symptoms of a lot of other illnesses!

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.

In this episode, Dilip Goswami and I discuss:

»The different ways to filter the indoor air

»What pollutants we should be worried about

»Symptoms you may experience from indoor pollutants

»How tthe Molekule Air Purifier can benefit your living and work space

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

Chakra System with Steve Politis

Many cultures have their own systems of energy that they correlate to the inner workings of the human body. In Chinese Medicine, these energy pathways are known as Meridians. Within the culture surrounding India, this is known as the Chakra System.

The Chakras are known as a concentrated area of energy within the body. There are over 100 Chakra locations in the body, but there are 7 points that are the most common in the Chakra System.

Dr. Steve Politis of Kineci Physical Therapy has been studying the Chakra System for many years, and has been incorporating it into his PT practice. He knows that there is much more to the body than just the physical component, therefore when he works with patients he is able to work with them on a deeper level.

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

Autoimmunity and Movement with Julia Morichelli

Autoimmunity is where the body's own immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues within the body. This can result in many issues such as low thyroid, systemic pain in the muscles, and forms of arthritis.

Usually those suffering from autoimmunity will have to take each day one day at a time. They could feel great today, and rundown tomorrow. This can make exercising a real challenge because you may not feel up for it.

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

Combining Fitness and Rehab with Pat McCloskey

There are fitness studios, gyms, and performance centers for the exercise enthusiasts. And for those who are injured there are physical therapy clinics and chiropractic offices. It makes sense to separate out these specialties into their own spaces.

But can you actually combine all of these areas of the health and wellness industry together? In physical therapy can the exercise someone needs to heal from an injury also be used as a way to increase their fitness level? 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

[7:15] Why is there such a high turnover for trainers and training staff
[8:46] Last summer you had to apply your own principles to your health after having a stroke
[14:40] How movement can become the exercise, rehab protocol, prehab protocol, and more
[17:30] If someone comes into your studio with any kind of pre-existing injury or condition, how do you assess them
[18:45] When creating protocols for people, do you create a plan from the assessment and stick with it, or do you adapt the program based on the client's needs
[23:25] We find that trainers have very specific ways that they say is the “right way” to move, is this the case
[25:55] Is there a specific threshold between a functional weight and load vs a heavy load
[30:00] If you see someone increase the load and then have a bunch of compensations to move that weight, it could be too much for their threshold
[32:55] How many ways can you tweak an exercise to make it unique to someone

The Power of the Triad with Jennifer Lee

If you look around you, you may notice that many things come in a triad. 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. Also this is why many books are written in 3s, such as trilogies, or the 3 musketeers.

Focusing on 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

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

Ways to Treat Chronic Pain with Pat Purcell

Are you suffering from chronic pain? Have you tried many different therapists and practitioners, but haven't had much luck with improving your overall pain?

This is an unfortunate reality for many of those who suffer from chronic pain. You do not deserve to suffer through it, but I want you to know there is hope to get better, and not to give up.

Like Pat Purcell and myself, there are many practitioners out there who are able to view the body as more than just the pain you are suffering. There are many factors that can contribute to chronic pain, such as stress, nutrition, compensatory movement patterns, and more. A great practitioner will take a look at all these areas to help you in your journey back to a pain-free life.

Can anyone recover from chronic pain?

We cannot say that everyone can recover 100% from their pain, but there are ways to improve your overall quality of life. If the pain is caused because of movement patterns, there are a million different ways to move. If stress is impacting the pain, then we can look to reduce stress levels.

Everyone who has completed a mentorship from the Gray Institute have a desire to help people get out of pain. We look into many different components to help you recover as much as possible.

In this episode, Pat Purcell and I discuss ways to help reduce pain:

»What happens to the nervous system when experiencing pain

»How can diet impact inflammation in the body

»Removing stressors to allow your body to enter a rest and repair state

»Exercises and movements to avoid pain

The Importance of Clean Skincare with Michelle Ornstein

Have you ever paid attention to the ingredients used in your skincare products? 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. As talked about in this episode, healthy skin is an internal and external battle.

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

The Importance of Clean Skincare with Michelle Ornstein
Have you ever paid attention to the ingredients used in your skincare products? 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. As talked about in this episode, healthy skin is an internal and external battle.
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

Functional Dryland Training for Swimmers with Markell Lyng

The training involved for swimmers is a very interesting topic because they train much differently than many other sports we see within the youth communities. 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.

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.

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.

Improving Brain Function through Movement with Ryan Glatt

In previous podcast episodes, we have talked about ways to help with neuro-degenerative issues by utilizing special diets or functional medicine modalities. These are all great to improve brain function, but there are many other components to the process than just supplemental support and nutrition.

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.

Structural Integration for Soft Tissue Health

When it comes to working with someone's body, we want to learn about the way their soft tissue is moving and gliding within their body. By watching movement and feeling the tissue under our hands, we are able to understand the complexity of the body, and how to effectively work with it to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and improve optimal movement quality and wellness.

There are many forms of massage out there, some are more calming and spa-like, where as others are aimed to help rehab the tissues. When someone is trained in structural integration, they are going to observe how the body moves and how the tissues move before they even lay their hands on you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

1:20 – Using my own injury to show a rehab process that is different than traditional protocols
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

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

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.

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.

Combating Chronic Illness in Children

When people come to my clinic to see me for their health issues, one of the questions I ask is what their support structure looks like within their family to support them on their health journey. 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. Children have always seemed to be invincible when it comes to dietary and health decisions, and there hasn't been a need to try and get children to understand what food can do to support, or break down the body.

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!

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 woman to learn more (and I mean that in a nice way). 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 woman 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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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. Nicole Armbrust PT, OCS, FAFS specializes with the running athletes.


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!

Plant Based Diet Myth with Lierre Keith

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.

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.

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!

The amount of individual minerals is important, but also the ratio of various minerals to each other is just as important if you are working on your mineral balancing.

Minerals need specific co-factors in order to be balanced properly, which can make mineral balancing a bit of work to find the proper protocol.

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.

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.
