Today I'm going to cover the #1 remedy for heartburn, GERD, and acid reflux. We're told that the cause of acid reflux, heartburn, and GERD is too much acid. But, I've found that rather than the overproduction of acid, these issues are typically caused by an underproduction of acid. Two main conditions cause low stomach acid: hypochlorhydria and achlorhydria. Symptoms of both these conditions include acid reflux, heartburn, and GERD. Hydrochloric acid is there to help you break down food, absorb minerals and vitamins, and protect against pathogens. A deficiency in hydrochloric acid can lead to a myriad of health concerns. One of the side effects of antacids or other acid-suppressing medications is a loss of stomach acid. This can temporarily cause someone to feel better but can lead to other health issues. Top causes of low stomach acid: • Hypothyroidism • Poor diet • A suppressed immune system • Antacids • Low-salt diets • Potassium deficiency • Zinc deficiency • Iodine deficiency • Eating too frequently Betaine hydrochloride is the best natural remedy for heartburn, GERD, and acid reflux. However, you shouldn't take it if you have an ulcer, and don't take betaine hydrochloride on an empty stomach. Consuming the Healthy Keto diet® and doing intermittent fasting may also be beneficial.

In this episode of Rework we're turning the spotlight onto you, our listeners, with another episode of listener questions. Today, Kimberly Rhodes sits down with Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, the co-founders of 37signals, to pull back the curtain on the intricacies they faced when hiring a COO for their team, and the intuition-driven decision making they used to ensure their new hire would be a good fit and complement the team. Plus, how to help your company get started with working in six-week cycles, and adapting product development principles to professional services companies.Listen in to explore Jason and David's unconventional yet remarkably effective strategies for business development and growth.Show Notes: [00:00] - Kimberly introduces the topic for today's podcast, listener questions, with a question from Justin who asks, "I saw that you hired a COO in 2021 after not having someone in that role for a while. What's the 37signals approach to executive hiring?" [00:46] - Jason discusses their decision to use a recruiter for hiring their new COO and shares which qualities were more important to them than the candidate's resume.[03:20] - David elaborates on the challenges of hiring executives, the importance of chemistry, and how Elaine complements their team.[06:41] - Reflecting on adding a third person to a team with a long history—why it was important to find someone who could introduce a dose of healthy conflict without making everything a grind.[08:07] - Jason shares how long the hiring process took, and what made them think that Elaine might be the right fit.[09:13] - David shares the importance of "gravitas"—having the weight and legitimacy to inspire trust and confidence in the team and how Elaine stood out compared to others in the hiring process. [10:44] - Kimberly shares this two-part question from Reuben: “What's your suggestion for helping a company get started with working in six-week cycles—is there a specific time to start? And are all the teams across 37signals synced on six-week cycles?”[11:07] - Jason shares his perspective on getting started with six-week cycles, his advice on when is a good time to start a cycle, and the one time he wouldn't. [12:50] - David discusses the importance of individual focus in problem-solving and why he believes in starting with a small team to test Shape Up's effectiveness before implementing it company-wide.[15:41] - The benefits of having the entire company operate on the same clock frequency.[16:27] - Kimberly shares a question from a mystery caller asking for advice on adapting product development principles to professional services type companies, like public accounting or legal that work on hourly billing and tax deadlines or legal deadlines that they have to meet. [17:21] - Jason and David share how to apply the core ideas of Shape Up to diverse service types and internal areas of your organization.[19:43] - The value of setting shorter goals over six weeks, rather than annual goals to increase the chances that things will get done. [20:11] - How shorter cycles help prevent the pile-up of tasks and overwhelming situations that often occur at the end of longer timeframes. [20:49] - Kimberly introduces a listener question about whether the 37signals team uses telemetry or relies on intuition in their product development process.[21:14] - Jason discusses their approach to product development, emphasizing the importance of other factors extensive telemetry, and A/B testing.[22:12] - David shares the challenges they have encountered with telemetry and A/B testing.[26:11] - The value of speed, forward momentum and making decisions instead of stalling to find a perfect solution.[27:24] - How launching quickly helps your team, with an example of how the team trimmed two months of analysis down to one day.[28:22] - Data can only reflect the past and doesn't accurately predict the future.[29:14] - Momentum in making continuous improvements is both crucial AND hard to measure. [30:10] - If you have a question for Jason or David about a better way to work and run your business, leave us a voicemail at 708-628-7850 or send us an email and we just might answer it on a future episode.

Today I'm going to share an inexpensive and effective natural remedy for inflammation in the digestive tract. This remedy can be used for conditions such as: • Gastritis • Irritation in the esophagus • Ulcers • Hernias • Diverticulitis • Crohn's disease Antibiotics are a common treatment for digestive problems. But, antibiotics can have side effects. We're going to look at a natural alternative for intestinal inflammation that won't sterilize the body or diminish and change your microbiome. This remedy will actually support your relationship with your gut microbiome. The best natural remedy for inflammation in the digestive tract is cabbage juice. Depending on the severity of your inflammation, you may want to consume one cup to one quart or liter of cabbage juice a day. Just make sure it's fresh raw organic cabbage juice—it can be green or red. Cabbage, in general, seems to be the best food for people who deal with digestive issues. Cabbage has four interesting factors that can help support the digestive tract, including: 1. Vitamin U 2. Sulforaphane 3. Vitamin C 4. L-glutamine DATA: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti... https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/... http://www.iresine.com/formula/images... https://www.karger.com/Article/Abstra... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7315057/
Today we're going to look at the interesting similarities between gout and kidney stones and natural alternatives for these concerns. Oxalates are involved in both kidney stones and gout. People who have high oxalates in their urine tend to have a worsening gout situation, and the most common type of kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones. Top foods high in oxalates: • Spinach • Rhubarb • Almonds • Chocolate • Cacao • Buckwheat • Wheat • Beans • Soy • Tofu • Miso • Potato chips • French fries • Beet tops • Swiss chard • Star fruit • Raspberries • Black pepper • Black tea Nuts high in oxalates: • Almonds • Brazil nuts • Hazelnuts • Cashews • Pine nuts Nuts low in oxalates: • Coconuts • Peanuts • Pistachios • Macadamia nuts • Walnuts Something else that can increase oxalates is consuming excess ascorbic acid or glycine. Fat malabsorption due to a bile deficiency can also cause an increase in oxalates. If you're prone to kidney stones or gout, you may also want to avoid consuming xylitol. Some people develop gout as they age due to an increase in iron and inflammation. If you're in this situation, you might want to try reducing the amount of iron you consume and work on lowering your inflammation. How to neutralize oxalates: 1. Drink two and a half liters of fluid per day 2. Consume calcium-rich foods 3. Take vitamin D3 4. Consume citrates (lemon juice in water) 5. Get plenty of vitamin B6 6. Get plenty of vitamin B1 7. Consume a moderate amount of protein on Healthy Keto® 8. Lower your sodium 9. Consume more potassium 10. Consume foods low in oxalates DATA: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science... https://www.racgp.org.au/afp/2012/dec... https://www.hormonesmatter.com/margin... https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/351269/

A conversation with Tina Owens, regenerative agriculture consultant and part of the Nutrient Density Alliance (for Regenerative Agriculture), about the state of the nutrient density space, the research, why life cycle assessments are broken and a lot more.We are at the telegraph stage of nutrition, and that means lots of opportunities for companies. What does it mean that only 1% of nutrition data is tracked on food labels. Does it mean we should wait until the science is completely clear? Or, is there a lot of space on which food companies, large and small, can already act and secure a leading role in a space that seems completely open at the moment.The promise of molecular food mapping and its potential to illuminate the nutritional dark matter of our daily intake is also on our radar. The future is at our fingertips, with wearable technology and mass spectrometers in play to help us grasp our food's nutritional content better. It is necessary a more inclusive approach that respects organic, perennial, regenerative, and indigenous managed lands. ---------------------------------------------------Join our Gumroad community, discover the tiers and benefits on www.gumroad.com/investinginregenag.

You want the best podcast vibes? Because that's what you get on this episode, with some 4 AM recording energy. Why were we recording at 4 AM? For the love of the game! The main training topic was answering a listener question about what excites us most right now in coaching and theory. We delve into some of the scientific history of VO2 max via a new study, whether you should do shorter races, how to think about intensity distribution, popular supplements we are intrigued by, and lots more. We backed that important discussion topic up with a silly compilation of shoe reviews. Do you want to find the next shoe for you? Start here. Then go other places too, since we are mainly making fun of shoe companies. And that was just the start of the pre-dawn fun! Other topics: the FURTHER project seeing how far athletes can go, our one at-home recommendation to improve your quality of life, the most weird heart rate responses to stress, WHOOP's new use of AI, Transvulcania leaving the UTMB World Series, Jim Walmsley getting a golden ticket to Western States, a wonderful new study on ultras, and hot takes.

This episode features an interview with Kyle Coleman, CMO at Clari & Devin Reed, Head of Content at Clari. Clari's Revenue Platform improves efficiency, predictability, and growth across the entire revenue process. In this episode, Kyle and Devin give us the inside scoop on how to reduce revenue leak with purpose-driven Marketing, share their thoughts on operational thought leadership, and how revenue is not just an event it's an outcome.Key Takeaways:Revenue is not just an event, it's a business process. And a process can be planned, modified, and provide more predictability.Map out your buying personas across the entire buying group. This has to be done so marketers can have more of a seat at the table for deal acceleration. The buyer's journey has changed so much and we need to be aware of those changes and make strategic decisions through a more updated, effective playbook.Sell and evangelize the problem you solve. You should always be talking about the value you bring to the marketplace and make sure you put the hero cape on your customer so they feel empowered to leverage what you offer and solve their problems.Quote(s):Kyle:“ You need to be selling and evangelizing the problem that you solve, and you need to be putting the hero cape on the buyer so that they feel empowered to go solve that problem, leveraging your technology. And that's the move that we're trying to make. So a lot of what we do in the RunRevenue campaign, and the way that we're showing up, and certainly, hopefully, the vibe that you get when you engage with any Clary properties, whether that's RunRevenue pro or Clary. com or us on social. Hopefully, you get more of a B2C feel from us. We want you leaving any Clari experience and feeling like, that was, that felt like Nike. That felt like Apple. Not, that felt like IBM. Like, that's not the way we want to go. So that's what we're trying to invest more in.”Devin:“You need to win mind share before you can win market share. So all that like people like, oh, it's brand content, like that's not converting. It's like, but most people aren't buying anyway. So you need to start to get, uh, get them to know, like, and trust you, like you're doing with your ad. And then later, when the meeting comes, when it comes up that I need your services, you'll be the first one. And you'll get more inbound.”Sponsor:Pipeline Visionaries is brought to you by Qualified.com, the #1 Conversational Marketing platform for companies that use Salesforce and the secret weapon for Demand Gen pros.

Most of the time, we think of analytics as taking historical data for a business, munging it in various ways, and then using the results of that munging to make decisions. But, what if the business has no (or very little) historical data… because it's a startup? That's the situation venture capitalists — especially those focused on early stage startups — face constantly. We were curious as to how and where data and analytics play a role in such a world, and Sam Wong, a partner at Blackbird Ventures, joined Michael, Val, and Tim to explore the subject. Hypotheses and KPIs came up a lot, so our hypothesis that there was a relevant tie-in to the traditional focus of this show was validated, and, as a result, the valuation of the podcast itself tripled and we are accepting term sheets. For complete show notes, including links to items mentioned in this episode and a transcript of the show, visit the show page.

David explains why he believes phone calls remain a powerful tool in today's digital age, emphasizing the human connection and the ability to understand prospects' pain points. He also mentions that phone calls can be less cluttered 00:15:23 - Understanding Persona-Based Messaging, Developing a value proposition based on the unique challenges and pains of each persona is essential for effective sales. Tailoring your messaging to address the specific needs of each individual will lead to better engagement and success in selling. 00:16:41 - The Importance of Preparation and Practice, While you don't want to sound scripted, being prepared and knowing what you want to say is crucial. Practice and develop your messaging to ensure you can articulate it effectively to different personas. 00:18:36 - The Role of Data in Sales Prospecting, Good data hygiene is vital for successful sales prospecting. Utilizing tools like Apollo, Lucia, Seamless, and ZoomInfo can provide data, but it's important to verify its accuracy and engage in manual data mining to ensure the information is up to date. 00:21:44 - Creative Lead Generation Strategies, Sometimes existing lists don't meet your specific criteria. In these cases, creative strategies like web scraping can be employed to find the right leads. Additionally, combining multiple data providers and waterfalling leads can help improve accuracy and increase the chances of success. 00:23:16 - Prospecting for Small Businesses, Outbound prospecting can be done by small businesses, but it requires a strategic approach and investment in good data, a sales acceleration platform, and the necessary time and resources. Doing it right is more important than rushing into it and wasting time and money. 00:30:57 - The Importance of Personalization in Sales Outreach, David Kreiger highlights the importance of personalization in sales outreach. He advises that while it may be more effective to send personalized messages to a smaller number of high-value prospects, for larger teams targeting a larger number of leads, it is more efficient to personalize the approach rather than customizing every single message. He emphasizes the need for brief and focused messaging that addresses the specific challenges and interests of the prospect. 00:32:24 - Customization vs Personalization Based on Team Size, David explains that the approach to customization and personalization should depend on the size of the team and the number of leads they are targeting. For smaller teams and high-value accounts, customization and deep research are recommended. However, for SDRs with a larger set of leads, being personal and personalized without customizing every message is more effective. The focus should be on asking relevant questions and providing value in a concise manner. 00:34:10 - The PVC Sales Methodology, Mario Martinez Jr. introduces the PVC sales methodology, which stands for personalization, value, and a call to action. He provides examples of how personalization can be done on an individual level, such as referencing a prospect's shared interest in a message. He also suggests a persona-based approach for sales automation, where a concise message addresses the common challenges faced by the target audience and offers value-added content. 00:37:13 - The Importance of Patience in Sales Outreach, Both David and Mario emphasize the need for patience in 00:44:12 - The Power of Building Relationships, The guest shares a story about how building a strong relationship with an executive assistant helped him gain access to the CIO's office. He emphasizes the importance of finding and connecting with key gatekeepers to increase sales opportunities. 00:45:52 - The Challenges of Virtual Communication, The guest discusses the challenges of virtual communication and the lack of personal interaction in today's business environment. He acknowledges the difficulty of reaching decision-makers without the assistance of receptionists and highlights the role of platforms like LinkedIn in connecting with prospects. 00:46:21 - The Hardest Job in Sales, The guest believes that the hardest job in sales is prospecting. He emphasizes the importance of understanding the CXO's perspective and the roles of various stakeholders. He suggests that prospecting will become easier as the sales environment evolves. 00:46:55 - Emerging Trends in Sales Development, The guest mentions two emerging trends in sales development: the experimentation with full cycle Account Executive Sales (AES) and the integration of AI in sales processes. He advises caution in relying solely on AI and encourages leveraging it while curating and refining its use. 00:49:26 - Best Way to Connect with the Guest, The guest shares that the best way to connect with him is through LinkedIn, where he is very active and responsive. He also mentions his company's website as another means of reaching out. Build Lasting Relationships and Close More Sales The podcast episode highlights the importance of forging strong relationships to achieve sales success. David Kreiger shares his experiences of gaining access to decision-makers by developing good rapport with key individuals such as executive assistants and receptionists. This rapport builds trust and paves the way for a deeper connection with potential clients, reducing the sales cycle time and increasing conversion rates. Maximize Prospecting Efforts with an Omnichannel Approach An omnichannel approach to prospecting is discussed throughout this podcast, emphasizing the need to tailor communication channels to each prospect's preferences for optimal results. The shift towards virtual phone systems and digital communication platforms like LinkedIn has created new opportunities for initial contact. Balancing these tools with traditional phone calls, according to David and Mario, can significantly maximize outreach and engagement efforts.

Today, we're going to talk about vitamin D deficiency and some things you've probably never heard about vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency can cause: • A compromised immune system • Inflammation • Sleep issues • Digestive problems Causes of vitamin D deficiency: • Gut inflammation • Missing gallbladder • Thicker skin • Darker skin • Obesity • Diabetes • Insulin resistance • Location (living further from the equator) • Problems with certain genes • Infection • Fatty liver • Smoking • Sugar • Stress • Statins • Low-fat diets • Pollution • Omega-6 fatty acids It's almost impossible to get vitamin D from your diet, so you need to take certain measures to avoid becoming vitamin D deficient. Important things you may have never learned about vitamin D: 1. Most side effects that occur after taking vitamin D could be caused by a magnesium deficiency. 2. Infrequent large doses of vitamin D may be better than small daily doses. 3. Farm-raised fish have four times less vitamin D than wild-caught fish, and grain-fed animals have less vitamin D than grass-fed animals. Chickens and pigs that roam outside have more vitamin D than those confined indoors. 4. Vitamin D3 is the third biggest factor that improves overall health. 5. Vitamin D2 is very different from vitamin D3 and may inhibit the absorption of vitamin D3 and worsen MS. It's also not effective to help with lupus or to decrease mortality, whereas vitamin D3 may be effective in these situations. 6. Ten minutes of skin exposure to the sun only provides about 400 IU of vitamin D. 7. Most vitamin D3 supplements in Europe (and possibly around the world) contain corn syrup.

Hey there, future real estate moguls! Are you ready to dive into the exciting world of real estate investment? Well, you're in the right place because today, we've got something special lined up for you. We're going to unlock the secrets of real estate investing and share seven unbelievable tips for beginners to get you started on your journey to financial freedom. So, stick around because you won't want to miss this! --> READ THE BLOG POST HERE https://myempirepro.com/blog/real-estate-investment-for-beginners --> WATCH VIDEO VERSION HERE https://youtu.be/BcK5uKZeeOs Real estate investment might seem like a daunting endeavor, but it doesn't have to be. Whether you're looking to generate monthly cash flow or build long-term wealth, real estate can be an excellent avenue for investment. In this video, we'll break down the basics of real estate investing and provide you with seven valuable tips to get started on the right foot. At its core, real estate investing is a way to grow your wealth in a manner that often outpaces the effects of inflation. While your regular job provides income, real estate investments can offer appreciation and income simultaneously. Before we dive into the tips, let's first understand why investing in real estate is a smart move. While there are many reasons, two primary motivations are cash flow and wealth building. 8 Benefits of Real Estate Investing: Benefit Number 1 of 8. Steady Cash Flow Real estate can provide a consistent stream of rental income, offering financial stability and covering ongoing expenses. Benefit Number 2 of 8. Long-Term Wealth Building Over time, real estate properties tend to appreciate in value, allowing investors to build substantial equity and long-term wealth. According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the average U.S. home value has increased at an annual rate of 4.3% since 1991. Notably, in areas like San Francisco, median home values have surged by an annual rate of 10.5% since 1991. For instance, a $200,000 investment in a home in 1991 would have appreciated to over $600,000 by 2023. Real estate investors can build equity as they make mortgage payments. For example, a buyer who purchased a $200,000 home with a 20% down payment would accumulate $160,000 in equity after making 20% of their mortgage payments. This equity can be leveraged for other investments or financial goals. Location, with properties near schools, jobs, and amenities tending to appreciate faster. Demand, where high demand relative to supply drives up prices. Supply, with limited availability often leading to price increases. Economic conditions, as periods of growth generally boost real estate prices. The Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index reveals a historical annual appreciation rate of approximately 3-5% for residential real estate in the U.S. The Federal Reserve's Survey of Consumer Finances underscores that most Americans accumulate significant wealth through home equity, which appreciates over time. Data from the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF) demonstrates that commercial real estate investments have consistently delivered robust returns, often surpassing stocks and bonds. Rental income from residential properties in the U.S. surpassed $500 billion in 2019, providing a reliable source of cash flow. Homeowners can amass substantial equity over time through mortgage payments and property value appreciation. The Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University reports a median increase of $40,000 in homeowner equity from 2013 to 2018. Benefit Number 3 of 8. Diversification: Real estate investments can diversify your portfolio, reducing risk by spreading your assets across different asset classes. Benefit Number 4 of 8. Tax Advantages: Real estate investors can benefit from various tax deductions, such as mortgage interest and property depreciation, which can reduce their overall tax liability. Benefit Number 5 of 8. Tangible Asset: Unlike some other investments, real estate provides a tangible asset that you can see and touch, adding a sense of security. Benefit Number 6. Inflation Hedge: Real estate often keeps pace with or outpaces inflation, preserving your purchasing power over time. Benefit Number 7 of 8. Control: Real estate investments offer a level of control, allowing you to make decisions about property management, improvements, and rental terms. Benefit Number 8 of 8. Passive Income: When managed properly, rental properties can generate passive income, allowing you to earn money without actively working for it. Real estate offers a unique combination of stability and profit potential that makes it appealing to both seasoned investors and beginners alike. 7 Types of Real Estate Investments Now, let's explore the different types of real estate investments you can consider: Real Estate Investments Type 1 of 7. Buy and Hold: This strategy involves purchasing properties for the purpose of generating monthly cash flow and building equity over time. Real Estate Investments Type 2 of 7. Flipping: Flipping is all about buying distressed properties, renovating them, and selling them for a profit within a relatively short time frame, typically six months to a year. Real Estate Investments Type 3 of 7. Wholesaling: As a wholesaler, you'll identify great real estate deals and pass them on to investors who have the resources to acquire them, earning a fee for your efforts. Real Estate Investments Type 4 of 7. Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs): These are companies that own, operate, or finance income-producing real estate. Investing in REITs allows you to own a share of various real estate properties without directly owning them. Real Estate Investments Type 5 of 7. House Hacking: This strategy involves purchasing a multi-family home, living in one of the units, and renting out the others to cover your living expenses. Real Estate Investments Type 6 of 7. Short-Term Rentals: With platforms like AirBnB, you can profit from renting out your property on a short-term basis to travelers and tourists. Real Estate Investments Type 7 of 7. Creative Financing: This category includes various creative methods like lease options and seller financing to acquire real estate without a traditional mortgage. Finding the right investment property is crucial. You'll want to consider factors like location, property condition, market trends, and potential for future growth. Local real estate agents and online resources can be valuable tools in your search. But in this time and age, AI and data driven platforms such as www.EmpireBIGData.com makes it super simple to assess and analyze all these factors in one click. Financing your real estate investment can be done through various means. These include traditional mortgages, hard money loans, private investors, and even your own savings. Conventionally, mortgages and cash might be your first thought of a funding source. But there are many other creative options that we will continue to discuss. Managing a rental property involves handling tenants, maintenance, and finances. You can choose to do this yourself or hire a property management company to handle these tasks for you. When you do get to this level, it's better to structure the cost of property management into your deals. Profits in real estate can come from rental income, property appreciation, and strategic buying and selling. It's important to have a clear plan and understand how your chosen investment strategy generates income. Different strategies for real estate investing suit different goals. Evaluate your objectives and risk tolerance to determine which approach aligns best with your financial aspirations. Finally, here are 7 tips to guide you on your real estate investment journey: Tip Number 1 of 7. Do Your Research: Knowledge is power in real estate. Take the time to learn about the market, property types, and investment strategies before jumping in. Tip Number 2 of 7. Exit Before Entry: Have a clear exit strategy in place before making an investment. Knowing how you'll profit or mitigate losses is essential. Tip Number 3 of 7. Learn How to Find Deals: Understanding how to identify great deals is a skill that can set you up for success. Networking, online listings, and real estate clubs can be helpful resources. And again, AI and data driven platforms such as www.EmpireBIGData.com makes it super simple to assess and analyze all these factors in one click. Tip Number 4 of 7. Learn How to Fund Deals: Explore various financing options and understand the pros and cons of each. Being well-financed is crucial for your real estate ventures. Tip Number 5 of 7. Real Estate Agents Are Overrated: While real estate agents can be helpful, they aren't always necessary, especially in the age of online listings. Don't hesitate to explore properties independently. Tip Number 6 of 7. Be Patient: Real estate investments may take time to yield significant returns. Avoid impulsive decisions and focus on the long-term gains. Tip Number 7 of 7. Don't Overextend Yourself: Avoid over-leveraging or investing beyond your means. Responsible financial management is key to a successful real estate journey. Saving such people was responsible for my first fleet of real estate success I enjoyed as a beginner in my first 3 years. Real estate investment offers substantial rewards, such as generating income, building wealth, and providing a hedge against inflation. However, it also carries risks that must be carefully managed.

Let's talk about the importance of potassium and what can happen if you don't get enough. Your body requires a lot of potassium. The daily requirement for potassium is 4700 mg. Potassium is important for the sodium-potassium pump. The sodium-potassium pump is like a battery for your cells. Vegetables are the best source of potassium. One cup of leafy greens provides between 500 and 800 mg of potassium. If you consumed five to ten cups of vegetables daily, you would get plenty of potassium. In comparison, a banana only provides about 300 mg of potassium. Bananas also contain a lot of fructose. Unfortunately, the average person is not getting enough potassium from their diet—and potassium supplements typically only give you up to 99 mg of potassium per tablet. Potassium deficiency is often overlooked. It's difficult to diagnose, and symptoms of a potassium deficiency are sometimes vague. Early symptoms often include difficulty breathing, fatigue, and heart palpitations. A more severe deficiency in potassium can lead to the following: • High blood pressure • Increased risk of stroke • Fluid retention or edema • Bone loss • Kidney stones Causes of potassium deficiency that go beyond a lack of potassium in the diet can include: • Penicillin • Diuretics • Steroids • Chronic stress • High insulin (high-carb diet) • Refined or processed foods Even the keto diet and prolonged fasting can lead to a potassium deficiency if not done correctly. You will lose potassium as you lose water weight on keto. Consuming enough potassium on keto and taking a potassium supplement while doing a prolonged fast is crucial. Eating too much too quickly after a prolonged fast or consuming too many carbs after a prolonged fast can also cause a severe potassium deficiency, which can be dangerous. My challenge for you is to start consuming a lot of foods high in potassium, like leafy greens, for one week and see how you feel. I think you're going to notice a big difference.

Today I'm going to share some important information related to chronic kidney disease. 10% of cases of end-stage renal disease are related to polycystic kidney disease. Polycystic kidney disease has mainly been thought of as a genetic problem, and until fairly recently, many people thought you couldn't do much about genetic diseases. But it turns out that you can. Some of the top warning signs of polycystic kidney disease are increased risk of infection, urinary bleeding, reduced function of the kidneys, and high blood pressure. A recent study done on mice found that the ketogenic diet halted and reversed polycystic kidney disease in the mice. They also found that time-restricted eating created a similar effect. Another study found that the keto diet may reduce the risk of kidney stones as long as the person is also on a low-oxalate diet. Along with keto and consuming low-oxalate foods, consuming enough water may help reduce the risk of kidney stones. In the study on polycystic kidney disease, they found that the cysts absorb glucose and are dependent on glucose. Glucose can contribute to other kidney issues as well. A low-carb diet and fasting are both great ways to get your body to start making ketones. You can also take ketones. The best natural remedies for kidney problems: • Curcumin • Resveratrol • EGCG (in green tea) • Quercetin • Berberine What I would do for chronic kidney disease: 1. Take the above natural remedies 2. Go on a low-oxalate keto diet 3. Do intermittent fasting DATA: https://journals.physiology.org/doi/f... https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-... https://fmcna.com/insights/articles/a... https://www.sciencedirect.com/science...

When then-hedge fund manager Elie Hassenfeld began his philanthropic journey in 2006, he knew that he wanted to get the most charitable bang for his buck. He quickly realized, however, that detailed data on charitable impact simply didn't exist. So he and Holden Karnovsky founded GiveWell, an organization inspired by effective altruism that identifies the charities that save or improve lives the most for every dollar given. Listen as Hassenfeld, GiveWell's CEO, explains to EconTalk's Russ Roberts how GiveWell determines the small number of charities they recommend to achieve optimal impact. They also discuss the dangers of an over-reliance on data and the case for bucketing our philanthropy to allow for local or personal giving.
Let's talk about wormwood. This natural herb has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine. The synthetic version of wormwood is the most effective treatment for malaria. There is also some interesting research on wormwood for COVID. Other potential benefits of wormwood: • It's anti-parasitic • It may be effective against worms, viruses, bacteria, and Lyme disease • It's anti-viral What we're going to focus on today, though, is its effectiveness against cancer. Potential benefits of wormwood for cancer patients: 1. It can selectively cause apoptosis in cancer cells. 2. It oxidizes a small amount of your iron, turning it into a free radical and directing it to the cancer cell. Oxidized iron is toxic to cancer cells. 3. The phytonutrients in wormwood can inhibit a certain protein complex involved in the process of normal cells converting into cancer cells. 4. It can inhibit normal cells from producing an increase in blood vessels to a tumor. 5. It's anti-inflammatory and may help stop the formation and spread of cancer. 6. It has an anti-metastatic effect, which means it may help inhibit the growth of cancer. DATA: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22935...
We're living in a data-rich time. Searching for a study or report on, say, the benefits of a three-day return-to-office policy? You're mere clicks away from convincing arguments with shiny graphics and spicy pull-quotes to post on LinkedIn. But there's also never been a worse time for data, with a glut of conflicting information being confidently shared from unreliable sources. Most frustrating, even if you find all the trustworthy data needed to craft a watertight argument for burning your performance management program to the ground, all the numbers in the world don't seem to be enough to change a single executive's rigid opinion, let alone an entire C-suite. HR has never had more data at their fingertips—so why does that data often feel useless? To explore this data dilemma, we brought back friend-of-the-pod Brian Elliott to unpack what's stopping HR departments (and let's be real, most organizations writ large) from turning this mountain of information into meaningful action. In this episode, Rodney and Brian talk about: The top headaches facing HR leaders around the globe Why change efforts for problems with clear supporting data often fail to get moving How to source and interpret external information, as well as gather it from within your company How to meaningfully engage with entrenched opinions and make change Learn more about Brian and what he's up to on LinkedIn.
