I can't believe it is already the end of 2019, and on top of that we are closing out the end of a decade!
Over the course of the year, we have had 30 guests come on to the show talking about topics ranging from Intermittent Fasting, to brain health, sexual support, gut inflammation, and sports recovery. On top of all that, the Summit For Wellness Podcast has doubled in listeners in the last year alone!
Below you will find the Top 5 Podcast Episodes from 2019. This was determined by the most amount of downloads within the first month of release of an episode, that way everyone has the same chance to place in the top 5!


Number 5







Episode 86- Enhance Your Performance Nutrition with Geoff Lecovin





Coming in at Number 5, we have Geoff Lecovin teaching us all about Performance Nutrition.



Often “performance” is associated with athletic abilities, but performance can take place in a lot of different areas of life, such as your career, or even handling your kids.



In Episode 86, Geoff walks us through his pyramid of steps to optimize your performance.



Number 4







Episode 93- Fix the Gut to Fix the Brain with Dr. Robert Silverman





Have you heard the saying “leaky gut, leaky brain”? If so, this episode will walk you through exactly how that saying came to be.



Dr. Robert Silverman is an expert on gut health, and teaches us about signs related to digestive stress. He walks us through lab tests to run, foods to remove, and steps to take to repair our system.





Number 3







Episode 88- Optimize Your Recovery in Sports with Lenny Parracino





You may remember Lenny from Episode 12 (the most downloaded episode we have) where he talks all about our soft tissue health.



In Episode 88, his focus in on recovery, and how to optimize our routines to improve function. While this episode was more focused on recovery in sports, he walks us through what protocols may look like for someone who isn't a pro athlete.



Number 2







Episode 85- Making Informed Supplement Choices with Kate Mahoney





The battle between Top 1 and 2 was within only a couple of downloads, so these episodes were really close. Coming in at Number 2 is Kate Mahoney and her talk about supplement choices.



You may have noticed all the bottles of supplements at every single grocery store. And you have probably seen how the price can vary pretty dramatically. So is the extra cost worth it for supplements? Or are all supplements created equal?



You'll have to listen to Episode 85 to find out.





Number 1

Weight loss, at any given point, over 50% of Americans are in the process of trying to lose weight. With so many people trying to change their weight, you would think we'd have figured it out by now.
But weight loss is complicated, and we've had a lot of programming that has shaped the way we eat today (like ice cream parties for achieving something in school). So to unpack all of the habits we have built through the years takes time to work through.
Once you decide that you want to change your habits, these changes last a lifetime. As Mandi Green calls it, it isn't a diet, it is a lifestyle. And with any lifestyle, you have your ups and downs, but you are constantly trying to improve yourself.

Environmental toxins are everywhere, and each day we are adding more and more chemicals into our environment.
The US imports or produces 27 trillion pounds of chemicals each year, which comes out to 74 billion pounds per day.
While throwing numbers out and talking about how polluted our planet is can be extremely gloomy, I think it is more helpful to learn actionable steps we can take to reduce our exposure and to detox our bodies.

The data shows that as we age, our overall sexual health can start to run into some issues.
For men, this could mean you start to have erectile dysfunction. For women, you might have problems reaching orgasm, or maybe some issues with incontinence.
With advancements in medicine, we are starting to have more and more options to improve these types of health problems. And one of the newcomers on the block to help with sexual function is injection therapy.

There is no way we can deny that humans generate a lot of waste. And it is too the point where our oceans and forests are filling up with trash.
If you don't believe that some people use forests as their own personal trash cans, then I welcome you to come to Seattle and hike on any trail within 1 hour from the city.
I think I can comfortably say that most people would like to reduce their trash usage, but just don't know where to start.
And the thought of changing everything we use can be overwhelming (which is the same feelings I had about it as well).
So in this episode, we talk about the most common everyday items that are used, and how to swap them out for more sustainable options without it feeling overwhelming.

You may have heard the quote from Hippocrates that states "All disease begins in the gut". While it might not be 100% accurate that disease starts in the gut, the gut almost always is impacted in any disease state.
But what is more interesting is when the issues in the gut cause issues in the brain.
While this episode all about how to test and fix "leaky gut, leaky brain" issues, I'll give you a brief overview of some reasons the gut and brain can be connected.

Allison Jackson teaches exactly how to do that.







The macronutrients (carbs, proteins, and fats) make up the bulk on the foods that we eat, which is why they are the largest (or macro) nutrients.
With macros, you can make a lot of different adjustments based on your goals. When I say goals, it could be a wide range of things, such as losing weight, or bulking up.
So when it comes to the macros, are there specific ratios that are more ideal for weight loss or weight gain?

Over 75% of doctor visits are due to stress-related issues. Which is a huge indicator that our society is over-stressed, and people aren't taking measures to reduce their stress.
The top 6 causes of death are all influenced by stress levels, which means millions of people every single year weren't managing their stress.
The problem is, we are busy. Our lives are busy. Our kids' lives are busy. We take on more than we should chew, yet we do it anyways.
But at what point is stress too much to handle?

The rates of Type 2 Diabetes is increasing drastically in the States. The medical costs for a diabetic are more than $14,000 per year, which can make it a very expensive illness to have.
However, in most cases, Type 2 Diabetes is a lifestyle-related illness. Meaning we have the capacity to prevent or reduce symptoms of Diabetes before diagnosis occurs.
This is where regular checkups to test blood markers like Hemoglobin A1C and fasting glucose tests can be a big help in monitoring your health to make sure you don't develop Diabetes.
I use a blood glucose monitor to check in with my body every now and then just to make sure my blood sugar is under control. It is an easy at home option to use to see how you are responding to the different foods you eat.

Learn from Barrymore Rosellini some sports psychology strategies.







Have you ever been in a situation where you lost something, but had to bounce back quickly and refocus your attention. Or maybe an injury prevented you from doing an activity you love doing?
These are just some situations that athletes face all of the time. Especially our young athletes, they typically don't get the same recovery periods between games as the pros do, and therefore have to recollect themselves quickly.
But that task can be very tough to do, and it is hard to shake off a defeat or a game changing situation.
This is where sports psychology comes into play. When an athlete faces adversity, how do they rise above the challenge to be successful?

What steps do you take after intense exercise or sports to recover appropriately? Do you have a routine you follow, or do you jump onto the couch and start playing video games?
Working with a lot of young athletes, the latter is usually what happens. When you are young, you are "invincible" therefore you don't need to stretch or do any recovery measures.
..Or so they think.
There are more and more young athletes falling prey to injuries from their sports, and there can be a number of reasons why that is.
So instead of being reactive and only providing support for young athletes after they have been injured, we will be talking about preventative ways to keep their body as healthy as possible during the season.


What Can You Learn From Professional Sports About Recovery


Lenny Parracino (was on Episode 12, the most downloaded episode to date) works with the LA Clippers and is faculty at the Meyer Institute of Sport. The athletes he works with rely on the best training and recovery protocols because their bodies are literally their livelihood.
So what can we learn about sports recovery from those in professional sports?
We learn that recovery is extremely important. We also learn that each player needs a specific protocol that can be applied to their needs.
That means Sally who plays soccer will need different routines than Zack who wrestles. And on top of that, as they continue to grow, the routines need to morph with them.
In this episode we dive deep (like Lenny always does) into strategies that parents, coaches, trainers, etc can utilize with their young athletes.
If you want to support these young athletes and make sure they avoid injury, you have to listen to this episode.

You don't have to go to a gym to exercise.
This may come as a shock, but the gym is not the only place where exercise happens. Nor does it create the best environment for exercising.
In fact, it wasn't until the 1960's and 1970's when commercial gyms started to pop up everywhere. So before that time, people were getting their exercise via work and how they played.
So to demonstrate one unique way to exercise, Megan Fritz is coming on to the show to talk about rock climbing. Rock climbing isn't all physical though, it is also a great way to build community and to train your mind.

Performance nutrition, while often considered for athletics, it can also translate into every day scenarios as well.
Such as a CEO of a business needs to be at the top of their game to build and grow a business.
Or a parent who works full time but still wants to have the energy to play with their kids when they get home.
Improving your performance allows you to have that little extra "edge" to get through the tasks that matter most to you.

Kate Mahoney helps us to figure out which supplements we should use or avoid, and what to look for from supplement companies.







The supplement industry is a $40 billion per year industry, and is minimally regulated by the FDA. Even a couple years ago big companies like Costco had lawsuits against them for their supplements not containing what the labels said.
One of the questions I hear all the time is if supplements are even worth it, especially since some of them can cost quite a bit of money.
There is no easy way to answer that question because every single person has different nutrient needs. One thing is for sure though, most of the food we receive aren't as nutrient-rich as they used to be, and it can cause deficiencies in our body.

Silver isn't just for jewelry and silverware. For thousands of years, silver has been used as a healing modality and an anti-microbial agent.
Silver isn't a lost healing agent either. It isn't a woo-woo magical metal. In fact, silver is used in many burn treatment centers to help reduce infection and to repair the skin. It is also used in surgeries as a coating for temporary and permanent devices.
So are there other uses for silver, or is it only good for burns and surgeries?

Shelley Gawith teaches us how to test and treat parasites in the body.







When we took our cat to the vet, the vet told us that it is a good idea to deworm our cat. Since our cat spends a lot of time in chicken coops and catching rats, he is exposed to fleas which carry worm eggs.
As we researched more, we found that it is recommended that animals are dewormed every couple of months because of how easy it is to come into contact with worms.
So it got me thinking, why aren't humans told to deworm more often? The only time we ever hear about it is when we go to countries that don't have good sanitation or water sources. However, it is just as easy for us to come into contact with parasites even in our own countries.
Since I knew Shelley Gawith has had near death experiences with parasites and mold, she was the perfect person to chat with in regards to getting rid of parasites.

We hear the saying all the time, beauty is on the inside, it isn't what is on the outside. While most often when we use this saying, we are talking about how great a person is or considerate they are based off their actions.
But today, we are actually talking about what we visually see on the outside. The beauty industry is worth over $500 billion, and the value is continually climbing.
To top it off, almost all of the products available in the beauty industry are what you can directly put onto your skin or hair to make them look healthier. But what if there are better ways of nourishing your skin?
This is where the "beauty is on the inside" part comes into play. The health of your skin and hair is influenced why the health of your body.

Quite a bit actually. One of the best ways to learn about life, is to learn from those at the end of it. In this episode, Dr. Brad teaches us about end of life care, breathing, and meditation.







How often do you get the chance to slow down and enjoy the moment you are in? If you live in the States, my guess would be not very often.
We live in a fast paced world, and we tend to add too much to our schedules. Then we ultimately feel like time is "flying by". The reality is, we aren't taking the time to enjoy it!
Recently I listened to a podcast about a guest who had made nearly $100 million over the course of his life. But at 45 years old, he got sick, and the prognosis wasn't good at all.
He said in that moment, that was when he realized that all the hard work and hustle to make so much money didn't matter at all because money wasn't going to save him or give him extra time with his family.
That conversation definitely made me think about life in a different way. The kids I work with constantly talk about "when I am blank age, then I can do this", and they don't even recognize they are wishing their life away.
But as adults, we do the same thing. We constantly look ahead, and have a hard time enjoying the "right now". Which is why I brought Dr. Brad Lichtenstein onto the show.

It is estimated that over 16% of elderly people will develop Dementia or Alzheimer's after the age of 65. The rate increases the older you get.
If you have ever known someone suffering from Dementia, it can be a really sad disease for the family to deal with. Seeing someone you love slowly disappear mentally is not the last memories we wish to have of our loved ones.
While researchers have spent decades trying to find a cure for Dementia, conventional research isn't any closer to finding the cure as they were 50 years ago.
However, the Amen Clinic has been making some huge changes in the progression of Dementia in their elderly patients.

Nearly 20 million Americans are suffering from a thyroid condition. The thyroid is either overactive (hyperthyroidism), or underactive (hypothyroidism).
90% of those suffering from hypothyroidism also have another condition called Hashimoto's Disease, which is an autoimmune condition. This is where the body attacks the thyroid, causing damage to it.
While both men and women can have thyroid issues, women are 5-8 times more likely to develop a thyroid condition. The reasons for this is unknown, but many people have some ideas why that would be.

Teen suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in Washington State for ages 10-24, and it is the 3rd leading cause of death nationwide.
It is a tragic epidemic that not only harms those who attempt suicide, but all the friends and families as well.
However, most of those who commit suicide will never know how they meant to the people around them. And for those who attempted but did not succeed, they worry that others are fearful of them killing themselves, when what they really want is to be seen.
So how can we do a better job at making the loved ones in our lives feel "felt"?

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.

By learning the flavor of herbs, you can quickly know what herbs to use for which symptoms you may have.



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



What to Expect From This Episode



Kris Vaughan is a Certified Clinical Herbalist and owner and program director of Herbal Wisdom Institute.

» How far back does herbalism go

It is important to provide the brain with the right nutrients to function correctly. Often we put a lot of focus on the gut, and not enough on the brain.



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

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 ai...



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

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> 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,



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



» Various treatment options and support for the kids

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

While one mild concussion might not be too devastating to the brain, repeated injuries are where the concerns happen.



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.

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.



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,]]>

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”



* There is an external stimulus that is causing the issue on your skin, such as harsh cleaners and chemicals* 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* [24:15] Some good options for protein powders are Prime Protein and Vital Proteins Collagen* [26:00] The lab tests that Jennifer will use is dependent upon symptoms* [29:00] The gut microbiome is communicating with the skin microbiome,]]>

Number 5







Episode 52- Intuitive Eating with Katie Garces



Episode 52 dives deep into why so many people fail on all of these different diets.



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.



In Episode 52, Katie explains how to listen to your body to discover what the perfect diet for you is.



Number 4







Episode 40- Treating Mold Toxicity with Kelly McCann



Mold toxicity is a health issue that is more common than anyone would expect.



It is estimated that over 50% of homes in the US have undetected mold damage, which means the majority of us are experiencing mold toxicity to some degree.



In Episode 40, Dr. Kelly McCann talks all about how mold impacts our health, what to do if your house is damaged by mold, and how to improve your health.





Number 3







Episode 57- Weight Loss and the Microbiome Connection with Kiran Krishnan



Kiran is a microbiologist who has been performing research on the microbiome for quite a long time.



He discusses not only what the microbiome is, but also how most probiotics aren't actually probiotics, and what we can do to support our microbiome colonies.



Also if you ever wondered what a dose of antibiotics will do to your body, this episode will tell you everything you need to know!



You can listen to Episode 57 here.

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



Cynthia is a practitioner I deeply respect, and it was an honor to have her on the podcast to talk about women's health.



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.

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

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.
In this episode, Dana also walks us through his process when taking on a new homeopathic client. This gives us a sneak preview of how a visit to your online or local homeopathic practitioner might look like. Other interesting highlights include:
» how old-age homeopathy is fundamentally our modern day version of toxicology
» homeopathy uses the basic principle of similars–where like cures like–to induce a detox process through a process called nano-dosing
» why it is critically important that detox symptoms are not suppressed during your homeopathic protocol
» how liver and kidney support is vital for your homeopathic detox journey
» and how important it is that you work with a homeopathic practitioner who can guide you and support you through the detox process
For a more comprehensive preview of this episode, please read through the shownotes below.



Shownotes

* [01:37] Dr. Ullman was inspired to be at the forefront of the homeopathic movement through his father’s medical career working with allergies
* [05:45] Homeopathy is an ancient practice fundamentally based off the principle of similars where like cures like
* [09:09] Homeopathy does not work with root causes of a disease, illness or injury in isolation, but also takes into account your susceptibility factors
* [11:34] Homeopathic remedies uses thousands of substances from plants, minerals, animals and chemical communities as remedies
* [12:47] Fever is a defense mechanism against infection. Using fever-reducing agents to fight off infections is antagonistic to your body’s wisdom
* [14:22] Nano (or small) doses of a homeopathic remedy are used you to stimulate the body into an immune response
* [17:11] Homeopathic remedies are extracted from plant, mineral or animal sources by FDA-approved homeopathic manufacturers by diluting and shaking them repeatedly to make them more potent
* [19:45] Addressing one symptom with the use of homeopathy can often lead to improvements to other health issues and challenges





* [21:54] Homeopathy can be used as a more effective and much safer alternative to your flu vaccines
* [28:55] Homeopathic interventions to address allergies has also been well-studied and well-documented
* [29:41] Getting a homeopathic dose of toxin will facilitate the expulsion of that toxin out of the body (otherwise known as the detox effect)
* [33:12] Working with a professional homeopath (as opposed to buying over-the-counter homeopathic remedies) will help you identify your specific exposures and personalize your homeopathic interventions

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

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 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



Shownotes

* [3:45] What is the Wim Hof Method
* [6:45] Who is Wim Hof and how was he able to complete so many world records
* [11:00] The ability for Wim Hof to withstand extreme cold temperatures comes from his ability to control his breath
* [15:15] Does the Wim Hof Method breathing techniques come from the practice of Pranayama which is a practice typically done in yoga
* [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





* [39.30] Would it be beneficial to combine Wim Hof Method with hyperbaric oxygen treatments or even oxygen supported exercise training programs
* [49:00] What are the benefits of cold therapy and why is there so much focus on the cold

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

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

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

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!
That is exactly the focus of this episode. Dr. Evan teaches us his 4-step approach to beating fatigue once and for all.

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

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
»Ways parents can get their kids to make healthier informed choices

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

When it comes to the older population, it is extremely important to focus on a couple specifics: - Protein Water and hydration


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

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

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:

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

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

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

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

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.

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

We live in an age where 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their life. The sad part is, people don't really want to discuss this issue, and we never hear anything about the cancer support that is provided for these individuals.
It is a very scary diagnosis to receive, but we can't keep quiet about the different options for treatment. Yes there is chemo and radiation as options, but these literally just kill the area around the cancer cells with the hopes it'll kill the cancer as well.
Why We Should Place More Focus on Cancer Support
When someone receives the diagnosis for cancer, they are instantly told about their current options such as chemo and radiation. They make it sound like you don't have time to think, and to get going on the process asap.
While there are stages of cancer that need immediate support, for many who are diagnosed they have time to settle down and think through options. Cancer does not occur overnight, it is usually at least a 7+ year developmental process.
This is why Megan Van Zyl has developed her cancer support system in which she educates clients about treatment options, nutritional support, emotional support, and more.
In this episode, Megan and I discuss:
»What traditionally happens in the doctor's office when you receive a cancer diagnosis
»Types of food that will better support the body during treatments
»What supplements provide the nutrients your body needs
»How emotions can tie into the progression of cancer

There could be quite a few areas within the pelvic floor that might not function properly, but the most common issue is incontinence.


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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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 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.
»What is the importance of applying dryland training to the swimmers training protocols
»What does a functional dryland training approach look like compared to traditional weight lifting

For those of you who spend time outdoors, one of the fears we run into is a tick bite. For a long time, this fear was more commonly found on the east coast where ticks are much more present. But with the changes of weather patterns, ticks are becoming more and more common even on the west coast.
So why are ticks such a big deal? Aren't they just a tiny little bug that burrows themselves into your skin until they are done feeding?
Ticks are a problem because they commonly carry a disease known as Lyme Disease. For a long time, we didn't have very efficient ways of treating Lyme Disease. In fact, the actual diagnosis process for Lyme has been very inaccurate, which means many cases of Lyme have gone on for far too long without proper diagnosis.
What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease?
The big problem with treating Lyme Disease is that the symptoms can prevent itself in many different ways, and it is a master at masking itself as something else. Unless you receive what is known as the “bulls-eye rash” from the initial bite, you can go a long time (even years) without knowing what is wrong with you.
Below are some signs and symptoms to look out for if you have been in contact with a tick, or suspect Lyme:

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

Where can Lyme Disease be found?
Lyme Disease has been found on every content in the world, except Antarctica. The most common way we know of to contract Lyme is via a tick bite, however there are theories that any bug that transmits blood can also spread Lyme (such as mosquitoes).
Not all ticks are infected though. Just because you may find one on your body, does not necessarily mean that you will have Lyme Disease. There are testing centers where you can send your tick to test for Lyme and other pathogens. You can find a few of these testing centers down in the shownotes.
Treating Lyme Disease
Dr. Darin Ingels ND is a practicing physician who has Lyme Disease himself. He has worked with many patients to help reduce overall symptomology of Lyme Disease, and has an upcoming book on his approach to treating Lyme Disease.

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!

[3:00] Ryan has a lot of qualifications and certifications within the movement industry, so what made him interested in brain science[6:25] What is the unofficial study that is currently happening with neuroscience[8:30] What does exercise do to the brain and does different modalities make a difference?[9:15] Are there any negative effects that have been shown from different exercises and modalities[10:15] We need to tailor exercise programs to the individuals' needs. If someone has anxiety, their exercise program needs to look different than someone without anxiety[12:15] Modalities do matter, but we also need variability within the modalities[14:00] Is a steady state aerobic training better for those with anxiety because it is more predictable than higher intensity anaerobic activity[15:15] Do external cues play a factor in cognition? Check out the research by Dr. Gabriel Wolfe and Nick Winkleman[18:05] When someone is first learning a movement technique, would it be best to start with external cues then later on teach them internal cues[19:00] What's the difference between dual-tasking and multitasking

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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


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!

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!

If you go to see your doctor, you will most likely hear them say that you should be taking a calcium supplement, or your fish oil, or avoid salt, but is this advice true for all people? When it comes to minerals, there is so much more information that goes into a protocol than just taking one pill to supplement all minerals. 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. Minerals can determine the functionality of many systems in the body, such as your thyroid or even your adrenal glands. All this can be learned in this episode of Mineral Balancing with Lydia Joy!
