Today, I am blessed to have here with me Lesya Holzapfel. She is the CEO and Founder of BSB Tribe and Eat. Be Fit. Explore. She is also the host of the Fit Moms Squad Podcast. Her mission is to share keto holistically and help women feel more confident.  As a teen, Lesya struggled to deal with her weight. This led her to choose being a dietitian as a major in college, but in the end, she was disappointed because she did not want to believe the things she was taught. After all the desperate attempts, she still couldn't lose weight no matter what she was doing.  A friend of hers doing keto and having great results inspired her to try it. That's where keto comes into her life. After going back and forth on keto because of her pregnancies, she finally has resolved to integrate it into her lifestyle. She began doing clean keto, intermittent fasting and focusing on proteins. Her lifestyle change produced a great outcome, as she lost 60 pounds in just eight months. Her journey of losing weight is an inspiration for many women experiencing the same she had.  In this episode, Lesya speaks about clean and dirty keto and the foods you need to avoid. The positive results you gain in strategically throwing carbs.  Lesya reveals the truth about doing keto in longer terms. She talks about the benefits of intermittent fasting based on your needs. Tune in as we chat about the dirty vs clean keto, investing in your health, carb cycling, intermittent fasting, and ways to break your weight loss stall.

Do organic if possible. -       True keto foods will not be marketed as keto foods. -       Clean keto is just about focusing on whole real foods. [22:18] Investing in Health Will Be Your Best Asset: Start Now! -       Health is not an expense. It's an investment. -       Sadly, health is the last thing that many people invest in. -       Organic food, grass, and all that are more expensive; however, you'll save money in the long run since you eat less. -       Most food at restaurants is going to be served with inflammatory oils. -       The most valuable thing you can invest in is your health. [25:14] How Can you Benefit from Intermittent Fasting Based on Your Needs? -       Time-restricted eating and a three-hour bedtime window are recommended for fully healthy women. -       Keep the meals between an eight to 10-hour window. -        If it's someone with cortisol or adrenal issues, we must be careful with too much fasting. -       We are all fasting. We just don't do it consciously. [28:15] Carb Cycling: Throw Your Carbs Strategically and Gain Positive Outcome -       While keto is a good stress reliever in the short term, it is bad if you are already stressed out. -       Carbs help decrease cortisol and increase serotonin. -        Not all carbs are good. Complex carbs support our body. -       You can travel and enjoy food, and it doesn't mean you have to eat all the crap all day. Just be strategic. -       Having extra healthy carbs around workouts could be a great idea if you feel tired. [38:28] Does Long-Term Keto Work Really? Find Out the Reality of It -       It's about bio-individuality and personalization -       Some women are not dealing with all this chronic stress that other women are. -       You can't know if a person is always doing carnivore 24/7. You can't determine one is healthy just by looking at them. -       Everyone's body is different, and we change based on our lifestyle. -       Don't believe everything you've seen on social media. [41:58] What Are Some Ways to Break Weight Loss Stall? -       Lesya does not let her clients tell her they've hit a stall unless they have for at least three weeks in a row and don't feel better. -       She has a step-by-step formula that she teaches in her program. -        Sleep is the most missed thing regarding weight loss stalls. -       Look at the basic causes: food, stress, and sleep. -       Eating normal macros daily, fasting for 24 hours, and then increasing carbs the next day works.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Gonzalez. He obtained his Ph. D and BS from the University of California, Irvine where he studied, and his thesis addressed interactions of the immune system following spinal cord injury. In addition to his expertise in degenerative disorders involving the spinal cord, he has extensive experience in stem cell culture and biology from various sources. He has extensive knowledge in all aspects of cell biology and health where he teaches worldwide on regenerative medicine and maintaining immune health. This episode originally aired in August 2021. Dr. Gonzalez is responsible for the development of clinical stem cell applications for several disease/trauma states. He leads 4 different investigational new drug applications with patented stem cell technology. Additionally, he works on the clinical development of immune based therapies using natural killer cells. He had led a reference laboratory in testing various regenerative medicine products. Dr Gonzalez has been in the regenerative medicine field for more than 18 years and has several scientific publications. He has taught, spoken and led many conferences nationwide in the regenerative medicine sector. In this episode, Dr. Gonzalez reveals the inspiration behind his career in the stem cell space. We speak about why cell therapeutics is known as the wild west and the amount of FDA testing Dr. Gonzalez goes through to ensure safe products. Then, Dr. Gonzalez dives into what exactly stem cells are and how they can improve the natural processes that are already occurring in your body. Tune in as we talk about the importance of fasting, turning your life around after an autoimmune diagnosis, and who should consider getting cell therapeutics.

He loves to understand and study cells. Stem cells have properties that can heal the body. Plus, Dr. Gonzalez believes that stem cells can work against aging. In fact, stem cells are made naturally inside our body. [08:00] The Wild West of Cell Therapeutics & FDA Testing Any form of cell therapeutics is like the wild west. When you submit for the cells to have a Chemical Manufacturing Composition, it takes years. Gonzalez got his first clinical study approved in 2019 with the FDA. Essentially, the FDA boils down to the amount of testing. They are always ensuring that the product is safe. [13:05] How Stem Cells Can Improve The Natural Processes In Your Body Pompa and Dr. Gonzalez have been looking at using stem cells to control the inflammatory state and increase blood flow. We need increased blood flow because you'll notice brain fog and a loss of energy without it. The natural property of our body is actually to increase blood flow any way that it can. The cells in your body have three fates: Natural cell turnover Necrosis Senescence When our cells stop dividing, they start occupying space and cause havoc. These cells can cause wrinkles and gray hair. There's a cell type in our body that is a natural killer. These cells have three jobs: Remove a cancer cell Pick up viral load Wipe out senescence cells If you don't have immune health, you essentially have nothing. Every single disease has an immune component to it. [22:10] The Critical Role Fasting Plays In Longevity Aging is an issue of cell growth. If you consume food incorrectly, your body has to process all that. When you keep dividing cells, you are causing senescence. One proven lifestyle change for longevity is fasting. Also, diet is important because you force your body to remove the toxins in your body.   [26:00] Transform Your Health With ReHealth's Cell Therapeutics Learn about ReHealth here: https://rehealth.com/ Register at the website, and they will contact you. The consultation is completely free. Depending on what you are looking to achieve will determine what type of therapeutics you should consider. Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy can help with the aging process. [30:30] How To Start Getting Your Life Back After An Autoimmune Diagnosis First and foremost, Dr. Gonzalez likes to discuss diet. If you are taking a bunch of meds, then you are not going to get better. Stem cells will give you a temporary effect unless you are doing all the key lifestyle components. Think about your goal. Gonzalez doesn't help people who are smoking. Stem cells will simply be a Band-Aid. Overall, stop smoking, start fasting, and fix your diet.   [33:00] How Frequently You Should Consider Working With ReHealth's Cell Therapeutics How often you will need cell therapeutics will depend on your goals and your situation. Some people will have one session and feel great for the next five or six years. Most people will get therapeutics every six months or every year. The effect of stem cells initially is far greater than the sequential effects. [42:30] The Type of Person That Should Seriously Consider Cell Therapeutics If you have immune issues, you need cell therapeutics. Also, if you've tried everything else, then you should try cell therapeutics. Sadly, doctors will want to hand you a pill. If you are going to go see someone, find someone who knows integrative medicine. If you have any questions, Dr. Gonzalez wants to answer them! Email: Rgonzalez@TheBioBox.com AND MUCH MORE!

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Brad & Maggie Jones. Maggie is a director & Producer, while Brad is a director, writer, editor & producer. After Maggie overcame her stage 4 lung cancer, she and her husband Brad decided to make a documentary series to create an easy-to-understand way of showing people the truth about cancer and how to deal with it.  Maggie is diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, a disease that has a one percent survival rate. This shocking turn of events began after they moved to Hong Kong, brimming with joy as they went through their busy lives. Doctors gave her six to eight months to live, and she resigned for a while but immediately got back to her feet, clinging to the one percent chance and believing that she would survive no matter what.  She started fasting and reading books, discovering things about the metabolic theory of cancer. She dives deeper until one year later; Maggie is completely cancer free. She lived her best life and aimed to experience her given life to the fullest. She began exercising, changing her eating lifestyle, and learning to love and appreciate her body. Her mission now is to raise awareness of metabolic therapies and help other people thrive and live their best lives.  In this episode, Brad and Maggie discuss overcoming, thriving, and winning your battle against cancer. We should not hate cancer because it is within everyone. Brad and Maggie share what you should know about tumor markers. Brad and Maggie reveal the truth about the war against cancer and why it is wrong. Tune in as we chat about the life-and-death battle against cancer, the falsehood of hating cancer, and the details of the documentary series on cancer.

That is the most important thing to power up people with cancer. -       In many cases, you have to fight against your oncologist, or in Maggie's case, she completely ignores them, or she would tell them what she is doing. -       Believe your body is a placebo.  It's more important than keto, metabolic theory, than everything. -       If you have somebody in your life who has a diagnosis like cancer or whatever it is, treat them as if they're healthy. -       Fasting is Maggie's current favorite therapy. [22:26] Don't Hate Cancer: Everyone Has It Inside Their Body -       It was very important to realize that your cancer cells are your cells. It's not an invading virus, bacteria, fungus, or whatever. -       Everybody's got a little bit of cancer inside them. -       It's extremely rare for you to be cured of cancer and never to have a recurrence. -       Don't panic about your first recurrence. Living with cancer is like living with a human body.  [25:45] What You Need to Learn and Understand About Tumor Markers -       It's different for every cancer, and lung cancer doesn't have an official tumour marker. -       90% of lung cancers are smokers. -       It can be something that can help, but at the same time, don't put a ton of weight into it until you are sure. Try to find one that works while you have a tumot. [35:47] War Against Cancer: Why is it the Wrong Mindset To Have? -       Getting cancer from genetic mutations is not proven. It is just a theory. -       The problem with the war on cancer is that we're putting all our effort behind this one genetic mutation theory, and scientists aren't opening their minds to other ways of cancer forming. -       There are so many types of cancer, not even one type of disease. -       It is taking away the funding from things like metabolic therapy that teach you that could create a core cause of cancer. -       You're never going to eradicate the disease. You have to be aware of it.   [39:40] Look for The Best Treatment: Chemotherapy Isn't Your Only Choice -       The five-year survival rate in chemotherapy for breast cancer was 2.1%. A very low percentage. -       There are many viable options to fight cancer, and keto is one of them. -       If you fasted for 13 hours or more, you have a 36% less likelihood of that breast cancer returning. -       There have been 92 new therapies over the last 17 years, and the overall survival was only two months. Not to mention how it costs compared to fasting, which is free. [44:07] Cancer Revolution:  Where to Watch This Groundbreaking Documentary -       You can check out YouTube to watch the film. -        We got many clips up if you want to see something immediately. -    Special opportunity to screen Cancer Revolution Docu-Series with question and answer with Ben Azadi & Dr Tro.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Devon & Peter. Devon is Peter's brother-in-law. Devon is a healthcare scientist and engineer, and Peter is a food and beverage entrepreneur. Together, they created Kenetik, a healthy ketone energy drink free of sugar and caffeine, with a real fruit flavor.  Devon and Peter have known each other since their teenage years. They are hardworking, entrepreneurial, and very conscious of health and wellness. Additionally, they both have families to take care of. Dealing with their busy life, they think about how they can be efficient and excel in their work simultaneously.  This is where they discover ketones, an unknown source of energy. They start experimenting and researching ketones. The problem is they found out that ketones in the market are expensive, taste bad, and are ineffective. From there, they began to initiate their study, find sources, get ingredients, and finally create their product called Ketenik, a high-quality exogenous ketone.  In this episode, Devon and Peter talk about what exogenous ketones are and their benefits, and how drinking ketones boost your brain power. Devon and Peter discuss the different types of ketones and the difference between their products of other companies. Devon and Peter dive in about the help of ketones in dealing with radiation. Tune in as we chat about the exogenous ketones, the boost it brings to our body, their pros and cons, and the best time to drink Ketenik.

[29:36] The best time to use the kenetik exogenous ketone drinks -       Normally, morning is the best time to drink kenetik. -       Ketones can be used before a workout to have energy without elevating the heart rate.   -       When you must keep going at night, Ketenik energy can be drunk instead of coffee. -       Drinking Ketenik can satiate hunger when fasting. -       There is a study that shows you won't become intoxicated if you drink Ketenik first. [37:48] How Do Ketones Protect Us from Radiation and Magnetic Fields? -       A study shows 60% reduction in chromosomal injury after exposure to gamma radiation when supplemented with ketones. -       Consuming Ketones will help people with the APOE4 gene since they do not metabolize glucose but do metabolize ketones. -       People with Alzheimer's can still use ketones for energy for their brains. [42:32] Using Ketones to Increase BHB and Handle Reactive Hypoglycemia -       Increasing 0.8 Beta-hydroxybutyrate with 10 grams of Keteniks takes about 20 to 30 minutes, and it'll be above 2.0. -        It will depend on a person's body size and other factors. -        It is interesting to see the result of using exogenous ketones to shift faster out of reactive hypoglycemia.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Megan Hall. She received her BS in Exercise Biology and MS in Nutritional Biology at UC Davis where her research focused on the effects of low carbohydrate and ketogenic diets on longevity and health span in mice. This episode originally aired in July 2021. She currently works as Scientific Director at Nourish Balance Thrive, an online health coaching company helping people achieve optimal health and peak performance. In her free time Megan enjoys reading, strength training, and hiking in the Colorado mountains. In this episode, Megan opens up the show by explaining why she wanted to learn more about nutritional and lifestyle interventions for optimal health. Even if you are making the necessary lifestyle changes, you can still be facing health issues. Megan explains why you may want to consider the gut as the reason you are having problems. Plus, Megan talks about how both physical and emotional stress can impact our gut health, and she gives tips on avoiding stress during mealtime. Tune in as we chat about overcoming acid reflux, the impact keto and fasting have on gut health, and whether or not you should give up drinking coffee.

She wanted to know more about how lifestyle and nutrition play a role in chronic diseases. Plus, Megan was becoming frustrated with conventional medical school education. Instead of pharmaceutical education, Megan wanted to learn more about helping people implement impactful nutritional and lifestyle interventions. Now, Megan works at Nourish Balance Thrive. She helps people achieve optimal health and performance.  [06:15] You Made Necessary Lifestyle Changes But Something Is Still Wrong Megan will help people who already have changed their diets, and their sleep is on point. However, there are still health issues. In this case, Megan says something is going on in the gut. Intestinal permeability or dysbiosis could be causing health issues. A stool test and targeted supplementation can fix the gut problem. There isn't a perfect stool test, unfortunately. [09:40] Mental Emotional Stress Impacts Not Just Our Digestive Health, But Also Our Overall Health There are different ways that stress can impact the gut. Both physical and emotional stress can have consequences. The elevation of stress hormones can cause direct inflammation and lead to further gut-derived inflammation. Stress hormones can potentially even lead to food intolerance if gut permeability is involved. Also, stress can directly impact digestion and nutrient absorption. Our bodies are not designed to digest food while we are under stress. Plus, stress can lead to making poor food choices. Stress can also increase motility and fluid reabsorption in the gut. Take deep breaths before eating – it will bring your body back into the parasympathetic state. [16:05] Eating Before Bed: It Can Affect Digestion, Sleep, And Your Circadian Rhythm  The body expects food to come during the day. Eating inherently increases our energy output and our body temperature. A drop in body temperature is one of the biggest signs or signals for our bodies to go to sleep. If you're eating before bed, you're not able to cool your body temperature down to increase melatonin. Sleep should be a time of rest and repair. If we are digesting while sleeping, it can cause issues. Plus, our gut microbes have their own circadian rhythms. [19:45] Megan Reveals Tips For Overcoming Acid Reflux   Avoid really large meals. Some people have specific food triggers that cause acid reflux. Don't eat close to bedtime. If you're doing everything right, look at what's going on at the level of the gut to see if there's small intestinal dysbiosis. [21:35] How Ketosis Can Impact Your Gut Health It makes sense from an evolutionary lens that our guts evolved to have this metabolic flexibility to adapt to different food resources available at a given time. There is some recent evidence in animals that butyrate may help enhance sleep. Butyrate also seems to have some anti-inflammatory effects both locally in the gut and then also outside of the gut. [25:00] The Importance of Rotating Foods For Gut Diversity When gut cells use butyrate as a fuel, it's actually converted to ketone bodies. Ketones may help improve gut function and also be used as an alternative fuel source for the gut. Increase gut diversity by rotating which foods you eat. Plus, going in and out of ketosis will also help with gut diversity.   [27:25] The Multiple Benefits That Fasting Has On Your Gut Health Longer-term fasting may improve gut barrier function. Improved gut barrier function is associated with reduced relative bacterial abundance. Intermittent fasting or time-restricted eating in your day-to-day life is a good thing. Plus, fasting can give your gut a rest. Strategic fasting is a helpful tool for your toolbox. [38:05] The Problems With Artificial Sweeteners & Which Ones You Should Avoid Monk fruit and stevia are some of the better artificial sweeteners. Whereas aspartame and sucralose are some of the worst. People who consume artificial sweeteners may have higher levels of insulin resistance. Long-term studies in humans looking at artificial sweetener intake that are controlled don't exist. There are a lot of questions that still need to be answered. Artificial sweeteners can potentially impact energy balance. [43:50] How The Carnivore Diet Can Help Heal Your Gut Nutrient-dense whole foods are great for your gut. What diet works for you today may not be helpful for you down the road. Antinutrients in plants can be problematic. They can inhibit nutrient absorption. Some antinutrients will increase intestinal permeability. [48:50] Should You Give Up Coffee For Your Gut Health? Polyphenols in coffee may have a positive effect on the gut microbial ecosystem. However, coffee can be inflammatory. People do not want to give up their coffee. Adding liquid saturated fats to coffee can be making your gut health worse. It can cause significant gut inflammation. If you're having joint pain, brain fog, or an inability to focus, then coffee could be the issue. We need to appreciate that coffee can have both a positive and a negative effect on our gut health.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Damon Sununtnasuk. He is the founder and CEO of the Sunt Group and Palmara Health which is previously named Nature Cure Labs. He has received numerous awards and recognitions in 2020. These awards include but are not limited to Company of the Year - Health Products & Services, Health & Wellness Nutrition Manufacturer of the Year, 10 Most Influential CEOs in 2022, and many more. Damon is also part of the board of directors of the University of Florida Alumni Association. Damon was born and raised in Florida where he graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Florida with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He had an opportunity to live overseas which is why he was able to take his Master of Business Administration at the University of Cambridge.  After living overseas, Damon came back to the United States in the year 2015. During this time, he experienced various serendipity. One of them is not having a way of looking after his health. At the time, he was also surrounded by the technological industry, entrepreneurial spirit, and startups. Aside from that, his group of friends was also into MCTs for health purposes which triggered his curiosity. There was even a time when he discovered "oil pulling" which is the process of putting coconut oil in the mouth for 10 minutes before spitting it out to help remove dirt and help maintain the health of your teeth and gums. After these events, he began to research MCTs where he was able to discover the different therapeutic benefits of Medium-Chain Triglycerides. Together with his desire to improve his health and the will to help others, he was able to establish his company in 2015. Currently, they have 3 manufacturing facilities and 35 warehouses in the United States. In this episode, Damon discusses Medium-Chain Triglycerides, specifically Monolaurin, and their role and benefits to the body. He talks about different studies about it and briefly discusses how these supplements are collected and made. He also mentions the Monolaurin product that his company offers.

The health benefits of MCTs have been studied over the years. Some people put it on their coffee, protein shakes, food and etc. When MCTs have been converted in the body, it becomes monolaurin. The three main types of MCTs are Capric, Caprylic, and Lauric Acid. They bring benefits to the body by giving immune support and regulation as well as an aid in ketosis. Damon is focusing on Lauric Acid as based on their research, it helps in immune, digestive, and inflammatory support. [11:33] Everything About Monolaurin: Role and Benefits in the Body Damon read a study about the use of Monolaurin to fight off Giardia Lamblia, one of the most common causes of malnutrition. One of the studies Damon has read used Monolaurin to try cure Giardia Lamblia on animal subjects in which the cure rates reached over 90%.  On the other hand, Damon has also read another study wherein Monolaurin was used on the animal subjects first before giving Giardia Lamblia. 60% of the test subjects didn't get sick. Research shows that Monolaurin helps in breaking down the protective envelope of the DNA and RNA viruses. Breast milk contains 6.5% of Monolaurin. Monolaurin can be found on coconut oil and palm oil. However, palm oil can only be harvested on sensitive environments which can affect natural habitats which is why coconut oil is more preferred. [20:21] The Different Ways You Can Take Monolaurin Before taking any supplements, you must contact a health professional in order to determine the right dosage for you to take. Introductory dose - Taking Monolaurin once a day, once every other day, and slowly increasing that up into the therapeutic dosage you're looking to get as an individual. Maintenance - In this way, monolaurin is taken daily to help maintain and regulate the healthy immune response.  Some people also take Monolaurin when they feel sick or immunocompromised.  [25:30] How Safe is Monolaurin for the Body? Monolaurin, under its chemical name 'Glycerol Monolaurin', is included on the 'Generally Recognized as Safe' list of the FDA. Different studies have not indicated a limit on the use of Monolaurin. Monolaurin impacts gut health. Research suggests that the continuous use of Monolaurin does not creates resistance in the body. [27:38] What Should You Do Before Buying a Product? Check out product testimonials posted on the website or marketplaces. Some product reviews are incentivized and not true so you should try and search about it first. Research through trusted websites like PubMed, familiarized yourself on different products, the science, the background, then the mechanics of it all and sort of trust the science and not necessarily someone's opinion.

Please don't attribute this to me, as it could be seen as a disease claim. “When monolaurin is consumed, it circulates in the bloodstream & is metabolized in a delayed fashion over 8-12 hours. Monolaurin is not excreted or detoxified out of the body. Instead, it is turned into energy in the form of ketones, [which in turn can] support ketone levels in the body.” -          https://dralexrinehart.com/articles/monolaurin-a-secret-coconut-oil-compound-with-powerful-immune-benefits/ “When coconut oil is consumed, the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are broken down into individual medium chain fatty acids and monoglycerides, which can kill or inactivate pathogenic microorganisms inside the body. The antiviral action, attributed to monolaurin (the monoglyceride of lauric acid), is that of solubilizing the lipids and phospholipids in the envelope of the pathogenic organisms causing the disintegration of their outer membrane. There is also evidence that MCFA interfere with the organism's signal transduction and the antimicrobial effect in viruses is due to interference with virus assembly and viral maturation.” -          Arora, Rajesh, et al. “Potential of Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Preventive Management of Novel H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu) Pandemic: Thwarting Potential Disasters in the Bud.” Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 13 Oct. 2010. “[Monolaurin] removes the M protein from the virus envelope resulted in loss of envelope integrity, which is essential for virus infectivity… the loss of envelope integrity results in loss of infectious virus titer” -          Hierholzer, John C, and Jon J Kabara. “In Vitro Effects of Monolaurin Compounds on Enveloped DNA and RNA Viruses.” Journal of Food Safety, vol. 4, no. 1, Mar. 1982, pp. 1–12. “Medium-chain saturated and long-chain unsaturated fatty acids, on the other hand, were all highly active against the enveloped viruses... Antiviral fatty acids were found to affect the viral envelope, causing leakage and at higher concentrations, a complete disintegration of the envelope and the viral particles.

The number one problem for people being unhealthy is the toxic food environment, such as processed and highly palatable foods. Most companies drive the reward centres of the consumers' brains, similar to a drug, which makes unhealthy products hard to avoid. [16:43] Calories In, Calories Out: Calories Matter Eating less and exercising more, creating the negative energy balance that causes weight loss, is the standard advice for people who are dieting. However, it is not the most effective.   A hormonal condition may be the number one factor in metabolic health and ideal body weight. Artificial dichotomy has two camps: the calorie camp, or the energy balance camp, and the hormonal camp or the insulin camp. Doctors and patients should consider the difference between deprivation and listening to your body. [26:15] Do You Know There's a Personal Fat Threshold? What Is It's Purpose? The personal fat threshold has the ability to store fat as energy. Unhealthy fats are created when the subcutaneous fat can't store any more energy and goes into the viscera, and as the viscera creates abdominal fat, inflammation sets in. Americans have a much higher personal fat threshold than Asians.  [36:53] The Continuous Glucose Monitor Is More Important Than You Think! Here's Why Some individuals want to start monitoring and preventing diabetes, yet potential conflict is present as conferences are only available for those with Type-2 Diabetes. Patients are often seen with high levels of CGM in the morning and low levels of CGM in the afternoon, but some patients are the opposite. Paying attention to how the individual feels, getting them on a scale, and doing a body composition, is almost better than doing CGM. [41:12] Do You Have Nutrition Concerns?

Today, I am grateful to have here with me, Lara Adler, an Environmental Toxins Expert & Educator, a Certified Holistic Health Coach, and someone who is deeply passionate about changing the landscape of disease through addressing toxic exposures. This episode originally aired in November 2019. Lara Adler has been on a mission to help allied health professionals better support their clients & patients they serve by addressing exposures to environmental chemicals. She also guides her students on how to seamlessly integrate this topic into their practices and to leverage their education to distinguish themselves in their fields. Lara has worked with thousands of practitioners in over 26 countries in her online programs to help them understand the links between chemicals in our daily lives and their links to chronic health conditions like metabolic disorders, thyroid disease, fertility, and behavioral problems in children. Through her flagship course, Talking Toxins, Lara gives health professionals like nutritionists, health coaches, ND's, RN's and chiropractors, as well as healthy-minded consumers a deep education on where these toxic exposures are happening, along with actionable steps to take. The goal is action, not overwhelm. In this episode, Lara Adler starts by discussing how our cell metabolism can be causing resistance to weight loss. Genetics can play a significant role in this resistance, as well as the pharmaceuticals you may be taking. Then, Lara explains all the toxins and chemicals we are introducing to our lives without even knowing. These toxins can be detrimental to our health. However, the good news is there are ways to rid your body of these chemicals. The easiest way to get started with detox is by visiting the sauna every single day. Lara also reveals other ways to rid our bodies of toxins and why this process doesn't need to be overwhelming. Tune in! Take my FREE toxicity quiz to determine your level of toxicity.

However, Lara never thought she would pursue anything professionally in the space. After eight years in another career, several people suggested she become a health coach. Lara got certified as a health coach. All of her clients were coming to her for weight loss advice. Some of Lara's clients had terrific results, whereas others had no results at all. What was she missing? Lara dove into the literature around resistance to weight loss. Lara learned about chemicals that mess with our metabolism and cause resistance weight loss. [14:15] Why You May Have Resistance to Weight Loss Genetic differences may predispose you to specific health conditions. Whereas, other people may not manifest these health conditions. For instance, two people who are smokers can have very different outcomes. [15:20] About the PPAR Pathway When PPAR gets activated, it changes the programming of our fat cells that lead toward weight gain. Our cells increase their capacity for fat storage. PPAR can also increase our number of fat cells. It happens at a cellular level completely absent from diet and exercise. This is referred to as chemically induced weight gain. Chemicals can make us fat. Antidepressants cause weight gain – it is a well-established side effect. [19:15] Fasting with Toxins We are burning fat while fasting. Normally, we are dumping our toxins into our fat. When we start losing weight rapidly, the toxins are dumped into our bloodstream. Our liver has to try and keep up with this load. Unless your liver is working perfectly, your liver can still be overloaded. People who have undergone rapid weight loss have shown a thousandfold increase of toxins flooding their systems. People often will get so sick that their hair even falls out. We want to be careful when we are fasting or losing weight. Toxins will desperately search for fat. Your metabolism cannot get rid of toxins – they get recycled back into the system. The body will rebound by adding fat to house the toxins. [22:15] Ways to Support the Liver Anything that supports the liver will be your friend on this journey. Lara's goal is to dial back the exposure and amp up what our body is getting rid of. We can do this by supporting the liver. Take activated charcoal – you need to know how to take a binder because it is a whole process. Sweat every day if you can in a sauna. Law enforcement is using sweat patches to see whether or not there are narcotics in someone's system. Sweat works! Some toxins will exit through sweat rather than any other pathway. You can measure chemicals in urine, but there are still toxins under your skin. A detox should be done every single day. We just want to support this process in all of the ways possible. [30:20] Chemicals to Look Out For BPA or bisphenol A can be found in cash register receipts, canned foods, the lining of canned foods, hard plastic materials. They are not found in soft plastics. Marketing from these companies is really misleading. If you look at a Ziploc bag, they all say BPA free – it never contained BPA. They manipulate the consumer's lack of understanding. BPA is only one chemical in a family of chemicals known as bisphenol. BPA got a bad rap in the public arena because a group of mothers saw it was in baby bottles. Companies swapped BPA for BPS – they are nearly identical. Studies about these substitutions are showing they may actually be worse. [39:45] There Is No Safe Water Bottle Brand Drink out of stainless steel. People don't want to use as much plastic, so they start reusing their plastic containers. The right thing to do is not to buy plastic. Our foods come packaged in plastic, and we can't avoid it. Avoid plastic when buying olive oil, coconut oil, and nut butter. There are 4 key things that increase the way chemicals migrate out of plastic: Heat Oil Acidity Abrasion If you have oily or fatty foods – it will increase the number of chemicals leaking out of the plastic and into the foods. [45:35] Cleaning Our Indoor Air Household cleaners cause a bigger percentage of air pollution than automobiles. You need to clean up what is happening in your house. Breathing this stuff every single day is harmful. House dust is actually lead, heavy metals, pesticides, and non-stick coating. These chemicals settle in the dust in our house. Dusting is so important to eliminate these harmful chemicals. [56:20] One Action Step at a Time When people come to this conversation and feel overwhelmed they need to take one action step. You can't occupy a space of being proactive and being overwhelmed. Action not overwhelm. Start doing stuff even if it's really small. Your first step can be visiting a sauna every day. It is easy to become obsessed with this topic and be afraid of touching anything. We do not need to be afraid of touching a plastic container. Take action on these things, and do not grab the receipt! AND MUCH MORE!

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Marek Doyle. He has spent the last 17 years developing a model of individualized nutrition based on data from over 3,000 individual outcomes, 11,000 test findings, and significant utilization of the scientific literature. Marek is a functional nutritional therapist. In addition to his Academy training course for practitioners and enthusiasts in London, England, Marek offers one-on-one consultations for customers. He holds a Master of Science degree in Personalized Nutrition.  Marek has always greatly respected and fascinated with the human body. He was always driven to nutritional therapy since it is the most fundamental aspect in impacting human biochemistry, and he has spent almost two decades improving his methods. Marek has an MSc in Personalized Nutrition (CNELM/Middlesex Uni), as well as a CertHE in Nutritional Medicine, a Diploma in Allergy and Environmental Therapy (BIAET) and a Diploma in Advanced Nutrition for Optimal Health (GBF/BCMA).  His viewpoint is shaped by everything that can enable him to precisely pinpoint each person's major challenges and predict the result of any given option. It is shaped less by exact answers and more by asking the right questions, which are formed from his personal experiences, combining the mechanical knowledge taken from the scientific literature with the wisdom embedded in traditional healing systems, and by making observations gleaned from working directly with thousands of people. In this episode, Marek speaks about how our bodies can repair themselves so long as you identify the hurdles that prevent it from happening, the flaws of modern weight loss methods, the pros and cons of the ketogenic diet, how the mitochondria work under stress, and things you need to remember before going on a diet.

Finding out what that obstacle is is the key to overcoming certain health issues. Once these obstacles are taken away, everything becomes much easier for an individual. These interferences aren't easy to identify or solve, which is why it is up to everybody to identify what they are. [06:28] The Flaws of Popular Weight Loss Methods Many influencers, nutritionists, and dieticians claim that energy balance is the only thing you'll need to lose body fat. Calories in and out are a big deal; however, both can change. This concept is entirely dependent on the body not changing its energy usage all day which makes it very flawed. The calorie concept is deceptive because it works short-term for weight loss but not fat loss. There is a massive difference between these two. [12:00] The Pros and Cons of the Keto Diet Two camps are relevant to this diet. The first one is the people who preach that it's a revolution, and the other is the ones who oppose it due to their belief in its health risks. There is a lot of misconception that still exists about the Keto Diet. One of the most anti-inflammatory interventions available is the Ketogenic Diet. [24:47] What the Mitochondria Does When You Are Stressed There are three different types of stress: Mental and Emotional Stress, Physical Stress, and Chemical Stress. Being under any of these stresses will cause the Mitochondria to generate a ton of oxidative stress. The only thing greater than the human body's capability to handle stress is how far you can push it until it eventually fails. Oxidative stress due to the overworking of the Mitochondria will cause certain problems in the human body. [40:44] Things You Must Consider Before Trying Certain Diets       There are many moving parts in the human body, making a perfect diet unrealistic.       Doing certain diets and fasting is fine; however, you must consider your status and other options first.       Stress, Immunocompromised bodies, your home's condition, and most importantly, your current health condition are some of the few things you need to be mindful of before starting a diet that will massively affect your body.   It's always a matter of identifying the big stressors in your life.

Today, people experience metabolic disease and unhealthy insulin resistance at alarming rates. Since the fifties, conventional westernized food has become highly processed, hyper-palatable food full of ingredients our body doesn't know how to process. Seed oils and high fructose corn syrup are cheap and convenient for manufacturers, but they are highly damaging to our bodies, and we end up not getting the nutrients we need. Ultimately, excessive consumption of processed food leads to inflammation, oxidative stress, insulin resistance, and metabolic disease. Poor Sleep and Movement Habits Create a Vicious Cycle of Stress In the past few years, modern Americans have experienced significant lifestyle changes in movement and sleep. To stay healthy, we need to move and leave our homes, but nowadays, it is possible to have everything delivered and become wholly isolated and sedentary. People stay up all night and sleep all day. They take drugs to help them wake up and also to help them sleep. This problem became more severe during the pandemic, and many Americans gained over 25 pounds. When people fail to manage their stress healthily, they only worsen things. Habits such as eating while standing and failing to connect with nature also perpetuate problems with sleep and energy levels. Waking when the sun rises, going to bed when it's dark out, and eating in alignment with circadian biology are the best practices to improve sleep and overall quality of life. Mapping Your Hormonal Cycle to Optimize Your Health Choices Women in their peak fertile years may be inclined to cruise along without paying attention to their cycle, but careful tracking is one of the best ways to optimize health. For example, keeping up with the progesterone-dominated segments of your cycle will help you understand when your body needs a break. Progesterone is like the sleepy mellow sister of estrogen, which may affect your workouts, energy, and cravings. About five to seven days before your menstrual cycle, you may need to watch your food intake better. Instead of pushing your body to do OrangeTheory or CrossFit six to seven days a week, this is a better time to focus on weight training, yoga, and pilates. Knowing when to rest and eat healthy foods during your cycle will reduce cravings, sleep problems, and other issues. Make Protein A Top Priority to Retain Muscles and Improve Insulin Sensitivity Besides avoiding highly processed foods, Thurlow recommends focusing on protein. Both men and women build the bulk of their lean muscle mass in their twenties and thirties. By forty, we begin to lose not only muscle mass but muscle strength as well. As we age, adipose tissue begins replacing our muscles, leading to insulin sensitivity. Protein helps to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, and hitting an adequate amount of protein is critically important for maintaining metabolic health. To maximize the effects of good nutrition, go for a ten to fifteen-minute walk after every meal because this will help your muscles absorb and retain glucose, which helps with insulin sensitivity. Recognizing and Adapting to Premenopausal Symptoms To conceptualize perimenopause, think of it as a sort of reverse puberty. When women first get their period, they usually do not menstruate regularly right away. Similarly, perimenopause may cause your cycle to become more irregular and, therefore, harder to track. Perimenopause occurs about ten to fifteen years before menopause, so between ages thirty-five and thirty-nine, women will begin to notice its effects. During this time, the ovaries do not produce as much progesterone. Our adrenal glands act as an emergency backup system for progesterone production, but perimenopause demands more from them, which can cause sleep disturbances, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms. Thurlow recommends speaking with your healthcare provider about hormone therapy, which comes in many different forms to combat these symptoms.  [05:10] All about Cynthia [13:05] The Modern American Lifestyle is Not Conducive to Wellness [14:45] Poor Sleep and Movement Habits Create a Vicious Cycle of Stress [18:50] Mapping Your Hormonal Cycle to Optimize Your Health Choices [27:20] Make Protein A Top Priority to Retain Muscles and Improve Insulin Sensitivity [32:55] Recognizing and Adapting to Premenopausal Symptoms [51:50] Questions and Answers  Resources Mentioned In This Episode Intermittent Fasting Transformation: The 45-Day Program for Women to Lose Stubborn Weight, Improve Hormonal Health, and Slow Aging: https://www.amazon.com/Cynthia-Thurlow/e/B098DJHRMT/ Cynthia's Website: https://cynthiathurlow.com/ Cynthia on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/cynthiathurlow Cynthia on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CHTWellness/ Cynthia's Podcast: https://cynthiathurlow.com/podcast/ Register your FREE spot for our upcoming 7 day keto challenge.

Sadly, the American Heart Association has taken over the conversation around nutrition. Since 1948, they have been pumping out many publications that seem like “science,” but it is complete propaganda. Americans are eating more seed oils, and it's making us obese. We are going backward in terms of our ability to make people healthy. Read Dr. Cate's blog on the subject! Cholesterol Is Good, The American Heart Association is Bad: https://drcate.com/why-cholesterol-is-good/ The Problems With Industrial Seed Oils Seed oils have a lot of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). They biochemically are easily attacked by oxygen, and they become toxic. Foods cooked in seed oils, like french fries, have some of the same toxins you inhale when you inhale cigarette smoke. For instance, both french fries and cigarettes have the same amount of crotonaldehyde. There are eight seed oils that you should avoid called The Hateful Eight: Canola Corn Cottonseed Soy Sunflower Safflower Grapeseed Rice bran  Learn more about The Hateful Eight on Dr. Cate's Website! The Hateful Eight: Enemy Fats That Destroy Your Health: https://drcate.com/the-hateful-eight-enemy-fats-that-destroy-your-health/ Differences Between Refined and Unrefined Peanut Oil  Peanut oil has a good amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids in it. However, it has been cultivated specifically for use as food. The cultivation of an oil seed makes it more oily. Olives have become more oily over time; the same goes for peanuts. You don't need to treat peanuts with harsh chemicals to extract oil. Dr. Cate recommends unrefined peanut oil. There are a lot of antioxidants in there that stabilize the PUFAs during cooking. Peanut oil that is refined is okay because it's better than seed oils; however, it doesn't have much nutrition, and it's not as heat stable. If Dr. Cate had to recommend one cooking method, it would be to cook your food in tallow. Vegetable Oils Are Worse Than Smoking Cigarettes The toxicity begins and ends with the beginning and end of your cigarette. Vegetable oils will end up in your body fat; this adds a whole other layer of metabolic impacts beyond the direct toxic effects. Vegetable oils are worse than sugar too. Sugar and high fructose corn syrup are full of empty calories. When you break down sugar, your body can't tell where the molecules come from. Those empty calories will turn into normal body fat. Humans have carried normal body fat around for a long time. Sadly, many people walk around with 40% PUFAs in their body fat. How Can You Avoid Seed Oils While Eating Out?  Ask them to cook your food in natural butter, not butter oil. Ask them for real olive oil if they don't have real butter. If they don't have butter or olive oil, they can cook your food using a different method, like steaming. Then, it would help if you took out the carbs. You can get a taco salad at Taco Bell without the shell. The shell has loads of vegetable oils in them. When you go to Taco Bell for salad, you can top it with meat, cheese, and avocado. Ben will tell the waiter that he is allergic to vegetable oils so that the restaurant staff will take the request seriously. Questions and Answers How can we release the PUFAs from stored fats in our bodies?  The more you burn your body fat, the more it will happen.  Fasting will accelerate the process. Stop snacking between meals and eat foods that give you sustainable energy. What about essential oils?  Traditional nuts and fruits have good fatty acid profiles.  Essential oils won't get absorbed through the bloodstream if you use them on your skin. How long will it take omega-3 to leave the body?  It will be stored in your body fat for around 18 months.  This time could be longer, depending on your body fat.  [06:50] All about Dr. Cate Shanahan [09:40] The American Heart Association is a fake news organization  [27:55] The problems with industrial seed oils [39:05] Differences between refined and unrefined peanut oil [48:30] Vegetable oils are worse than smoking cigarettes [51:20] How can you avoid seed oils while eating out?

They have a lot of double bonds, and they're very unstable. DHA and EPA are even more unsaturated than vegetables. [04:50] What Happens When Vegetable Oil Enters The Cell Wall of Your 38 Trillion Cells?  Lipoprotein particle has one or two proteins that carry the oil, travels through the bloodstream, and eventually ends up under trillions of cells.  About 80% of the cell wall is fat, a rudimentary and primitive way of understanding aging.  Greater than 90% of all the antioxidants on the cell wall are vitamin E molecules, tocotrienol. Less than 10% of them are Co-Q 10, which your body makes, Lycopene and Beta-keratin.  Four Major Food Groups are Fat, Protein, Carbohydrate, and Nucleic Acid. [12:27] Watch Out! Keep Your Body Healthy From Fats and Cholesterol Vast amounts of fatty acid are not healthy for the body. The cholesterol is made by our body and is in the cell to give flexibility to the cell, so it is not too rigid or stiff. One in every 10,000 oxygen becomes radicalized. It had two very active electrons under oxygen, with a high potential energy. [22:28]  Increase Your Knowledge Of Various Antioxidants Facts Worth Knowing The body makes very few endogenous antioxidants, including Co-Q 10, Glutathione, and Estrogen.  Plants have tens of thousands of antioxidants; the most common ones the plant makes are polyphenols.  Supplemental Co-Q 10 is hard to absorb by the body and will only stay in the blood.  Keratin's purpose is to capture this oxygen free radical and protect against oxidative damage, so the leaf is not destroyed. [37:28] What Are The Various Types of Vitamin E You Must Look Out For?  Tocopherol and Tocotrienol are the two major forms of Vitamin E. Most Vitamin Es are 95% Tocopherol, and 5% will be Tocotrienols. Rice, palm oil, and the annatto plant are common products containing Tocotrienols. Plants produce keratin to preserve foliage colour. [42:12] Learn About The Benefits And Beauty That The Annatto Plant Offers The annatto plant doesn't contain tocopherol, which hinders the function of tocotrienol. It has 90% delta-tocotrienol and 10% gamma-tocotrienol. Annatto produces tocotrienol to preserve the colour of the plant longer. Protecting the colour is critical for the plant to attract birds to swallow its seed and help maintain the lifecycle. AND MUCH MORE!

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Austin Cavelli. She helps people optimize their health by burning fat for fuel and reducing years of underlying inflammation from the standard American diet. Her approach focuses on quality nutrition by way of nutrient-dense animal products. This episode originally aired in August 2021. Austin is a board-certified, nationally accredited physician assistant. I have treated thousands of patients with acute and chronic inflammatory diseases, including various autoimmune conditions. In addition, Austin has worked for several years in research studying addiction and the aging brain. Austin's background in research has taught her how to conduct experiments, a skill that has proven extremely useful in helping clients find what works specifically for them. In 2014, Austin earned my Master of Science degree from Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences in NYC. Prior, Austin received her bachelor's degree in psychobiology from Binghamton University. In this episode, Austin opens the show by explaining why she started following a carnivore diet. After years and years of digestive issues, the carnivore diet finally put Austin on the track to a healthy life. Austin explains what antinutrients are and why they could be causing some of your health symptoms. We talk about common myths like not eating fiber will cause constipation and the alleged link between red meat and cancer. Tune in as we chat about the importance of electrolytes, organ meats, and reintroducing keto foods into your diet. Register your FREE spot for our upcoming 7 day keto challenge.

She suffered from chronic constipation and chronic pains with food. So, Austin tried a paleo diet and cut out diary. Eventually, Austin noticed that when she cut out certain vegetables, her digestion was getting better. Then, she realized more fats would make her feel better. It wasn't until Austin went carnivore and cut out fiber that made her digestive issues go away. [06:30] Antinutrients Could Be The Reason For Your Symptoms Joint pain is a big issue. Antinutrients can also cause chronic constipation. Also, antinutrients can be hindering your mental clarity and sleep. Lastly, antinutrients may be causing low energy levels. Switching to carnivore can vastly improve mental clarity, sleep, energy, digestion, and joint pain. [08:35] Why You May Want To Ditch The Antinutrients Take away antinutrients to see if your health improves. Antinutrients will affect every person differently. The gut will be most affected by antinutrients. In fact, they can even cause leaky gut. First, you have to clean the gut before you introduce probiotics. If you add probiotics to an unhealthy gut, then it's not going to help. Remove the antinutrients in order to heal the gut temporarily. [14:15] Do You Need Fiber To Have Regular Bowel Movements? People think that going on a carnivore diet will result in constipation. Other people say that the carnivore diet will result in explosive diarrhea. When switching to carnivore, the increased amount of fat could result in diarrhea. So, go heavy on protein instead of fat. Liquid fats will run right through you. [16:30] Why You Shouldn't Drink Water When You Are Eating Your Meals When you are eating a carnivore diet, you already have a lot of protein which requires stomach acid to break it down. To maximize stomach acid, prevent water 30 minutes before and after a meal. It takes our body more effort to digest cold water. Instead, drink room temperature water. When eating, it is best not to just stress the body and make sure that you can focus on the digestion of food. [17:45] Electrolytes Are Critical When Following A Carnivore Diet Austin is a minimalist when it comes to supplements. If you are going to eat organs, then eat the actual organs. Supplements are processed, so it's time to eliminate those from your diet when possible. If you are starting a carnivore diet, then you need more electrolytes. Take a magnesium supplement; it's not readily available in our soil anymore. Austin recommends Pure Encapsulations: https://www.pureencapsulations.com/ [22:00] Why You Should Eat Organ Meat And How To Make It Taste Good Liver is the most bang for your buck. The beef heart is very mild. Another organ that is easy on flavor is the beef tongue. Slow cooking the beef tongue will make it easy to consume. [26:45] Can I Get Cancer From Eating Too Much Red Meat? Keto and carnivore have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. The red meat studies were not accurate – they were not looking at just the consumption of red meat. Everything comes down to inflammation. When you reduce antinutrients, you are reducing inflammation. By doing these things, you are actually reversing your chances of getting cancer. The number one cancer center in the United States is promoting a ketogenic diet. [32:50] How To Transition From Carnivore To Keto Depending on what foods trigger your symptoms will depend on how you want to transition from carnivore to keto. For instance, if sweet things trigger your symptoms, then you may want to avoid fruits. However, if sweet foods are not your trigger, then you can start to reintroduce berries back into your diet. Avocado is a safe food to bring back into your diet. Also, some people even cut out eggs when they go on a carnivore diet. That's another food item you can start incorporating when getting back to the keto lifestyle. AND MUCH MORE!

What and how much we eat affects our entire constitution and overall health. The more you learn, the more you want to share what you've learned to help others. Melanie started trying the Paleo diet after she read Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet. [11:05] Getting Heavy Metal Poisoning from Fish People don't realize and tend to underestimate how much mercury there is in the fish you eat. Melanie thinks that swordfish should be made illegal to be sold in restaurants due to the amount of mercury you can contract from it. Eat fish in moderation to avoid heavy metal poisoning. You can get mercury poisoning not only from fish but from silver tooth fillings as well. Symptoms of this poisoning include fatigue, anemia, memory loss, anxiety, hot flashes, and insomnia. [25:25] What Happens When Toxins Get into the Body? Our bodies can detoxify on their own; however, we are not accustomed to the overwhelming toxic burden that we have nowadays. Every day toxins such as heavy metals in the food we eat, pesticides, skincare products, and makeup aren't regulated, which is why we consume more than we should. An abundance of certain compounds in makeup can cause you to gain weight and make it hard to lose it. Not to mention carcinogens. The solution to pollution is dilution. There are also studies about obesogens that states that they may affect insulin levels as well. [39:05] The Most Common Themes in Interviews Most people are all about bio-individuality: different diets and things work for different people. Most of them seem to be focused on fasting as well, which is quite popular at the moment.  Blood sugar control is a common theme since many people have a lot of trouble dealing with it. There is no cookie-cutter approach to anything. Different strokes work for different folks. A specific diet can't work for literally everyone. It's not as simple as eating less food and moving your body, and you immediately get results. Outcomes depend on every person. AND MUCH MORE!

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Rachel Scheer. She is a Certified Functional Medicine Nutritionist who received her degree from Baylor University in Nutrition Science and Dietetics. Rachel has her own private nutrition and counseling practice located in McKinney, Texas. If your goal is to optimize your hormones and gut health, have better energy, or lose weight and keep it off Rachel can help you! This episode originally aired in August 2021. Rachel's journey as a nutrition coach began in weight-loss and athletic performance. However, a couple years into her practice she began to suffer from severe gastrointestinal dysfunction (IBS.) After many false diagnoses, spending thousands of dollars on doctor visits and tests, and one doctor even suggesting the removal of her entire large intestine, Rachel decided to take her health into her own hands. Using her knowledge in nutrition and dietetics Rachel became an expert on gut health and hormonal balance and completed her certification in functional medicine through the Kalish Institute. Rachel says “using a functional approach and focusing on the health of the gut microbiome saved [her] life. Rachel's nutrition philosophy is one that looks at the total person. She uses functional lab testing to address the root cause of any imbalances in the body and creates a customized program consisting of dietary recommendations, supplements, and lifestyle modifications to optimize your health and wellbeing. In this episode, Rachel opens up about her story of becoming one of the world's top health and fitness influencers. On the outside, Rachel had the "perfect body." However, on the inside, Rachel was suffering from gut issues, depression, anxiety, thyroid problems, and hormone imbalances. Rachel speaks about how she reversed her health, and we dive deep into the importance of your gut health. Plus, Rachel reveals what things you need to avoid in order to have a healthy gut.

Rachel decided to go to Baylor University for Nutrition Science and Dietetics. At college, Rachel started weightlifting, fitness competitions, and bodybuilding. She was known as someone who could maintain this incredible physique for so long. Fitness was an outlet for Rachel to escape her trauma. [04:20] Rachel Was Close To Getting Her Entire Large Intestine Cut Out Rachel suffered from a lot of chronic gut issues. She realized that bodybuilding wasn't healthy; she was miserable on the inside. During her bodybuilding days, Rachel had hormonal imbalances, her thyroid took a massive hit, she was depressed, and she had anxiety. Rachel's gut issues were severe – whenever Rachel ate, she had massive pain. The gastroenterologist wanted to cut out her large intestine. Something in Rachel's gut told her not to do the surgery. Instead, she went down the road of functional medicine. [15:40] A Guide To Increasing Diversity In Your Gut Food is a great way to increase diversity in your gut. More diversity in our gut leads to more leanness, which can help improve our metabolism. The first thing you can do is feed the bacteria in the gut by increasing more fibers. Green bananas are a great way to increase diversity. Figure out a way to rotate some of the foods and fibers that you're eating. “Food is going to be the number one source of fuel for a greater diversity in our gut.” -Rachel Scheer [23:45] The Worst Foods You Can Eat For Gut Health Sugar A lot of pathogenic bacteria thrive off of sugar in the diet. Sugar also leads to obesity which will wreak havoc on our gut microbiome. Vegetable oils They create massive inflammation throughout our entire body. We can metabolize sugar, but we can't metabolize these seed oils. Medications (antibiotics, antacids, PPIs, and birth control) Birth control can deplete the body of key micronutrients. It can wreak havoc in our gut microbiome not only because of depleting the nutrients, but it can cause an imbalance of bacteria. Most people have too much stomach acid, and we overuse antacids. Stress Stress causes us to be in a catabolic state. When our digestive system is not really working because we're in a stress state, this can lead to a lot of bacterial overgrowth. Unresolved trauma People who've gone through trauma actually have a low vagal tone. When we go through periods of stress, our gut is affected. Sugar substitutes Use monk fruit and stevia instead of other popular substitutes like sucralose. Dairy and wheat Most of us can't really break down lactose. Try to do an elimination diet by removing dairy. Raw diets Raw vegetables have a lot of insoluble fibers. In general, we need to cook our food. [43:25] Building Lean Muscle Mass Important For Longevity Protein is incredibly important for our skeletal muscle mass. When we don't have adequate skeletal muscle mass, we have higher levels of blood sugar and higher levels of insulin. The number one reason why people end up in nursing homes is for sarcopenia. Overall, we need to eat high-quality protein and increase skeletal muscle mass in the body. [48:25] Which Is More Important: A Physical Six-Pack or a Mental Six-Pack? Rachel says a mental six-pack is more important than a physical six-pack. Losing weight won't make you happy. Instead, who you are as a person will make you happy. Always work on being the best version of yourself and always do things that will improve your mental health and wellbeing. [40:55] How To Respond To Hateful Comments and Messages Online People like to put you down and criticize you online. Usually, it's all about the person that is doing the criticizing. When you stand up for the things you believe in, then no one can make you feel bad. You have to know undoubtedly who you are and what you stand for. [56:55] The Benefits of Having A Coach On Your Health Journey If there's anything you want to truly excel in, you should work with an expert. You are the greatest investment you can ever make. Too often, people think the cost of a coach is too high. However, you are the only investment that you can make that will continue to give back to you. Find a coach in every area of your life that you want to improve in. AND MUCH MORE!

The Main Themes That Dr Mindy Discovered Our food intake and modern toxicity are some of the reasons why we are sick Dr Mindy doubles down that evolutionary mismatch, especially among women, is one of the main culprits of why we are sick Stress-eating work against our hormonal cycle The thrifty-gene hypothesis proposes that humans who were able to survive long periods without food were due to the thrifty gene that allowed them to move into ketosis at a much quicker rate [17:03] We Got The Diet Culture Wrong! Here's Why Dr Mindy strongly believes that the notion that there's one diet to keep you healthy or lose weight is erroneous. Metabolic switching helps the body to get the required energy it needs depending on the situation; the key is the constant in and out People always look for “absolutes” in healthcare, but the body doesn't respond well to those absolutes [30:23] What Happened to Dr Mindy When She Started Fasting? Dr Mindy discovered that cycling in and out of fasting assisted her in alleviating her menopausal symptoms Identifying the quirks of hormones allowed Dr Mindy to identify the diet she needs Progesterone needs more glucose. If you want to maximize estrogen, keep your blood sugar down If you want to have a healthy ovulation, work on the microbiome and the liver, and you don't want to go deep into ketosis Plan your diet in various phases, power phase, manifestation phase, and nurture phase [37:38] We Have a Hormonal Literacy Problem! How Do We Fix It? Dr Mindy spoke to thousands of doctors and found out that only a handful of them understood the underlying facets of hormones in our bodies She believes that we have a hormonal literacy problem, and women are the most affected as an imbalance in their hormonal cycle is being villainized Teenage girls should be taught early on about the emotional, physical, and chemical stress The language of hormones should be brought back because it helps control our mood, energy, and sleep. It helps control how we gain and lose weight. Understanding hormones means understanding the ins and outs of the body [50:58] Do You Have an Eating Disorder? Here Are Some Precautions YOU Should Know Before Fasting! If you have an eating disorder, you need to work with a health coach or your psychologist who has a deep understanding of fasting Fasting is done best when done with the community Working with the community on your fasting journey and connecting with them lifts up your oxytocin The strength of your marriage and the quality of your friendship plays an important role in living a healthier life and happiness You might want a quick fix to problems, the best way to diet or fast, but don't lose sight of the importance of community  [58:47] Diet Failed Us! Why Understanding the Glycemic Index Matters Fast Like A Girl Book has an extensive discussion about failed diet strategies, one of them is the glycemic index You can search online for the GCM of something, but the most accurate way would be to have a CGM or blood sugar reader to have a full view of how much glucose your body is taking in Different foods have different glycemic impacts, and understanding that is important if you want to achieve a healthier body AND MUCH MORE!

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Jay Nixon. He is a skilled speaker, author, coach, and mentor for anyone looking to get results and permanently alter their way of life. Over the years, Jay has helped thousands of people gain confidence and be their best selves. He hosts a podcast called "Thrive Forever Fit", which covers topics related to diet, exercise, and mentality that can influence how we feel and behave. Jay's father was killed in an accident when he was five. As a coping mechanism for the tragedy, food became his way to comfort himself and led him to overweight. But even in this condition, Jay has always been interested in fitness and nutrition. When he got older, Jay engaged to different sports that helped him on his weight journey. However, he still struggled with his mind as he is anxious about how his body looks. Nonetheless, he became a personal trainer at 17, and since then, Jay has begun to find the path to where he belongs. Ultimately, he decided to open his gym, started writing books, and began his career on coaching people. Thrive Fitness Studio is the name of his gym and everything associated with it is called Thrive Forever Fit because Jay believes we should do something consistently for as long as we live. He wanted to teach people how to live comfortably so that we wouldn't have to do radical things that have been proven to be failures. In this episode, Jay Nixon digs into the issues and wrong beliefs that hinder people from achieving a healthy body and lifestyle. Additionally, Jay emphasizes the value of having the correct mindset when losing weight and some takeaways you can implement immediately to begin your journey towards forever fitness. Tune in as we chat about the mindset around the food, myths about losing weight, advice to start right away, and the difference between intelligent work rather than hard work.

The Problem is You, Not the Food There's a lot of drug abuse on the scene in bodybuilding. There's not a lot of alcohol consumption, but there's a lot of prescription and recreational drug use. Your mindset around the food is the real issue, not the food itself. Food is more like fuel and a resource to nourish and do what your body wants. Instead of creating a short-term sustainable diet, make a lifestyle that you are comfortable maintaining forever. [17:00] The Wrong Beliefs in Losing Weight That You Should Avoid You don't need to starve yourself.  It's a myth that there's good versus bad food. What we are talking about is real food, not with those different chemicals.  Counting macros and calories, it's not sustainable. Developed a lifestyle where you understand what food looks like and what it will do when you eat it.  People just want to be told what to do instead of learning what to do. [25:50] What is The Value of Having the Right Mindset in Losing Weight? This has nothing to do with the food, and nothing to do with being overweight. The weight loss was a side effect. It's all about the brain and the mind. The book is about psychological reasons I learned working with clients and myself over time.  It was always the story, the mindset, or the belief systems that the client had psychologically that were the issue.  Jay uses fitness and nutrition to get people into my world, and then he unpacks the real reasons why they're there.  It will be useless to stay with the same beliefs you had before Jay. [32:16] Increase Your Thermostat: Love Yourself and Maintain Your Fitness  We have a lot of limiting beliefs, and we have a lot of self-doubts that hold us back. Sometimes, giving a compliment to someone who is not in the right frame of mind can affect them negatively.  It all starts with the psychology of what you believe you deserve. Jay's favorite saying is that you'll never be, do or have more than you believe you deserve.  [34:20] How Can You Begin Your Lifelong Journey Towards a Healthy Lifestyle? First, Jay helps you to recognize the negative language you are using and change it. Then he will talk about the belief system of who you believe you are. Jay won't let you lie to yourself, but he won't be cruel. He will inform you in a kind manner.  If you're using the word “try”, start telling yourself, " I will do what's required. If you'll change your language, it will change your life.  If you continually break promises to yourself, that will create a lack of self-belief or a lack of confidence or just that lack of mentality.  [42:05] Hard work vs Intelligent Work: What is the Difference? He realizes that most people say they are hardworking, which made him think about its variability and subjectivity.  Most of the things he does would not prescribe as hard, but they require him to do them intelligently. There is much more value in being intelligent in food, how our body moves, and how we speak and act rather than working hard. AND MUCH MORE!

Register your FREE spot for our upcoming 7 day keto challenge. We start January 9th 2023! Sign up here: http://www.ketokampchallenge.com  At 19, Dr. Rebecca was diagnosed with Follicular Variant Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma and had a complete thyroidectomy with high-dose radiation- all of which was completely unnecessary. But she didn't know what else to do. After having her thyroid removed, she suffered from hormone issues that Doctors would write off because all her labs looked “normal.”   She suffered from depression, anxiety, weight loss resistance, and period issues with no help on how to get better. It wasn't until she decided to draw a line in the sand that no doctor was going to know more about her body than she did her health transformed. She has spent the past decade and a half studying the literature, implementing protocols, using the most up-to-date functional labs and testing, and ancestral tools (like fasting and diet variation) to not only take back her health but to help thousands of men and women to do the same.

Your body needs diversity in how you eat. Unfortunately, most people will stick with the same eating method because they like how their bodies have healed. However, your body doesn't feel better because of keto. Instead, your body feels better because it is created to heal itself. With keto, you shift your metabolism; you give your body this new form of fuel that it can use efficiently. Now, your body is healing itself! If food were healing, you wouldn't see healing when you fast. Remember, healing comes from the inside out. Is TSH A Marker of Thyroid Health?  TSH is a pituitary hormone; it can have a delay if there's a conversion issue. People don't talk about cell receptor sensitivity regarding thyroid hormones. Cell receptor sensitivity going down, liver congestion, gut issues, and liver issues will impact thyroid health. However, TSH will not pick up on it until it's severe because it's a pituitary hormone, not a thyroid hormone. If you have other issues in the body, TSH will not always pick them up. If you have the symptoms of thyroid issues, then your doctor needs to pay attention regardless of your TSH markers.    Which Labs Will Be Best To Determine Your Thyroid Health? Dr. Rebecca will still test TSH because it's a piece of the overall puzzle. From the thyroid, you need to know T4. The thyroid will predominantly make T4. You will get a better idea of thyroid hormone production levels by looking at your free T4 levels. This number will tell you if you have free available hormones to utilize. If you are on thyroid medications, you should also check your total T4 levels. Free T4 will go to the liver and the gut then you will get T3. So, you will also want to know your T3 levels. Plus, you will want free T3 and reverse T3. Most likely, your doctor will not test for all these; it's time to find a different doctor! Fasting and Ketosis Will Give Your Thyroid A Much-Needed Break T3 works in the mitochondria; it is needed for ATP production. Mitochondrial health and thyroid health go hand in hand. Getting into ketosis will be incredible for your health! Even if you have a thyroid issue, you can see metabolic changes through keto because utilizing ketone bodies for energy is more efficient for ATP production. In a way, you give your thyroid a break while still producing energy efficiently. Fasting is also incredible for the thyroid through cellular repair and generating healthy cells for the thyroid. What Is A Good Fasting Schedule For Someone With An Underactive Thyroid?  Focus on making sure that you know how to eat enough before you start fasting. If you have sex hormone issues and thyroid hormone issues, you probably have been too restrictive for too long because you are not losing weight. So, you need to do keto and eat high-protein and high-fat foods. Dr. Rebecca will have people track their macros because they don't realize how little they eat. A 16-hour fast and an 8-hour eating window will be beneficial when you start. Many people who have a thyroid issue and jump straight into fasting get frustrated because they won't see excellent results. Once you have some fasting success, you'll try a dinner-to-dinner fast and see how you feel. Lastly, you'll do a 3-day water fast to reset your hormones. Questions and Answers   Does age matter?   However, you will have more nodules showing up on your thyroid as you get older.  You can still feel amazing even if you are older, don't let age restrict you.  How do you address sugar addiction?  An underlying issue is always making you prone to sugar addiction.  Low progesterone issues go unaddressed in women all the time. Sugar addiction means something needs to be addressed. Advice for someone who wants to take fewer thyroid medications.  It takes six weeks for your hormones to normalize, and you will want to retest.  The dose of your medication is unique to you. You need to advocate for how you feel and how you function.  If your sensitivity is down, you might need more meds than someone else. However, the doctor will look at your labs and say otherwise.

Lack of REM sleep results in nighttime erections, which can impair erectile function. Sudden death is the first indicator of heart disease in 25% of men. Erectile dysfunction in males is an indication that there is underlying cardiovascular disease. [21:18] What Can We Do About Low Testosterone? Simply Tips to Raise Testosterone Naturally Processed foods have an impact on testosterone production in the body. The body only creates the amount of testosterone needs based on the activity. The testicles are located outside the body because sperm and testosterone production occur best around 97.1 degrees. Physical activity is essential for raising testosterone production. [28:10] The Best Ways to Test Testosterone Levels Testosterone levels can be measured using saliva and blood. The testicle produces four to seven milligrams of testosterone every day but does not store it. It immediately releases it into the bloodstream and attaches testosterone to protein. Testosterone is a wonderful hormone, but there are repercussions if it is taken incorrectly. [37:12] Testosterone therapy: Good or Bad For You?  Just because you start testosterone therapy doesn't imply you have to do it for the rest of your life. Clomid is a testosterone supplement with no side effects that can help safeguard testicular function. In terms of fertility, Beta-hCG stimulates testosterone and sperm production. [41:12] Testosterone Boosting Supplements to Naturally Raise T Levels When manufacturing supplements, use substances that have been scientifically proven to work. Support: a testosterone-boosting supplement, as well as DHEA: a testosterone precursor, can help men with low testosterone levels increase their testosterone levels. [41:12] Does High Levels of Testosterone Increase Rick of Prostate Cancer?  Prostate cancer is not caused by testosterone. Men with low testosterone have a higher risk of developing prostate cancer and have more aggressive prostate cancer than men with normal or high testosterone. A rise in testosterone lowers your risk of diabetes. AND MUCH MORE!

Instead of needing an invasive surgery, you can take a stimulatory blend of essential oils. It gets through the skin and works quickly. Essential oils help to digest food and absorb nutrients. [21:52] Having Trouble Sleeping? Solve it with this Method -        Oils can be utilized to restore the equilibrium of various organ systems and brain regions. -        Apply the oils right above the ear since the skin is thinner there. -        You can apply any blend of oils that feels relaxing. People mostly use citrus sprout blends. -        To feel less worried, close your right nostril, inhale through your left, and smell anything such as orange.  [26:24] What does the Gallbladder Blend Can Do? -        The blend is designed to tonify the gallbladder and thin the bile. -        It topically overlays the energetic signature of what the gallbladder is supposed to feel like. -        It is one more tool you can apply to return the gallbladder to balance.   [32:15] Importance of Lymphatic System and Ways To Get It Going  -        The lymph is critical to ensuring that the garbage leaves the body. -        Your lymph moves when you move, so exercise, yoga, and any breathing practice help the lymph move. -        Sleep is important because an aspect of your lymphatic system called the glymphatic system, which is a kind of brain carwash, is only active at night. [37:17] Histamine intolerance: Return it to Balance Through this Blend -        If you had mold exposure in your house, the mold could linger. And that can cause you to be overactive too many things -        You don't want it turned off. You just want to modulate it.             -        You can use the blend in several ways. You can use it to support sinus drainage and mold removal. -        Put the histamine balance on the back of your ears or the back of your neck, and it will work without exhausting you.  [42:45] Don't Just Mix Your Own. Here's the reason why -        Sometimes, it is more expensive than just getting pre-made. -        Jodi gives you ready-made remedies that many practitioners are already using, so you don't need to worry about mixing your own. -         If you're new to this,  just try it by buying an orange and smelling it through your left nostril.

Today, I am blessed to have for a THIRD time, Dr. Don Clum. He graduated from Life University in Marietta, GA in 1997 with a degree in Human Nutrition. He then moved to Life Chiropractic College West in California, where he graduated with his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2000. This originally aired in July 2021. After graduation, Dr. Clum moved to San Jose, Costa Rica where he was invited to work with the Costa Rican Olympic Committee and Athletes. Dr. Clum participated in the National, Central American and Caribbean and Central American Games as the team chiropractor and as the official chiropractor for two professional soccer teams. As a frequent guest on National Television and Radio, Dr. Clum was influential in bringing the gift of holistic health care to the people of Central America and worked with the government programs, instituting W.H.O. procedures and working directly with the indigenous populations of Costa Rica. He was sought after as a speaker and has presented to various professional sports teams, universities, medical groups, medical and chiropractic schools, businesses and government agencies. Dr. Clum was instrumental in forming the first Colegio or “Board” and enacting the first legislation recognizing chiropractic as a licensed and legal healing profession in Costa Rica. In this episode, Dr. Clum opens the show by revealing why the 'calories in, calories out' method of eating is bogus. Plus, he tells us how glycogen works and the reason that too many people oversimplify it. Dr. Clum explains why people who burn more calories are happier, and he gives an overview of the blood markers you should use to measure insulin health. Tune in as we chat about the problem with snacking, how to know if you're fasting too much, and we dig deep into adrenals, insulin, and cortisol.

Humans are dynamic open systems. First of all, the accuracy for calories is fundamentally off. There's automatically up to a 25% error rate for calories. Plus, our body will process calories differently depending on what they are. Sugars will be released into your body differently depending on your gut bacteria. [07:30] The Glycogen Concept Is Flawed – We Oversimplify It We never tap out our glycogen. You don't have to reduce glycogen by a significant amount if you're metabolically flexible. The glycogen in our liver is there for our body. Glycogen appears to be pretty steady no matter what you do. You don't have to deplete all your glycogen to go into fat burning. [17:30] People Who Burn More Calories Are Happier People who burn more calories are happier because of different hormonal states. Your body will interpret nutrients in your gut. Food is not fuel – it's information. Your body doesn't handle processed food very well, even protein powders. [24:10] Blood Markers You Can Use To Monitor Insulin Health You can do serum insulin, which is fasting insulin. You want that number as low as possible. This number should be around 2 or 3. When you eat, that number can blow up to seven times. If you start at 20, then you'll go up to 140. If you keep doing that each day, then you have a problem. Most Americans eat in a fifteen-hour window – they are eating from the time they wake up to the time they go to bed. [26:05] Why Snacking Could Be Damaging Your Health Snacking causes a lot of issues. People are snacking between 19 and 23 times a day. If you are constantly digesting, then you aren't recycling. When your body is resting, then it is in autophagy. So, your cells will start to work better. Autophagy allows new cells to come in and replace cells that have died. [31:40] Signs You Could Be Fasting Too Often Clum teaches progressive fasting rotations. Growth will start to kick in after a fast. You could lose 97% of your new cells if you don't end a fast in the right way. It is rare that you lose lean body muscle from fasting. You have to have a body fat percentage of 5% or less to tap into muscle during a fast. [34:10] Does It Matter What Foods You Break A Fast With? What breaks the fast depends on why you're doing the fast. The food you eat will matter up to two weeks after you fast. Eat foods that are insulin friendly. Plus, exercise is a key component of repairing your cells. [50:45] Quitting Junk Food Causes Withdrawals Like Drug Addiction When an addict stops drinking, they will be lightheaded, irritable, feel terrible, shake, and sweat. When some people skip a meal, they feel the exact same way. Food fuels the addiction pathway. In fact, food is more addictive than drugs. Food hits dopamine and serotonin. Every time insulin gets shot out, so does serotonin. [55:30] Dr. Clum Does Not Encourage C-Peptide Level Testing If triglycerides are over 100, there's an insulin issue. Over 150 is a metabolic syndrome marker. Insulin resistance is inversely related to vitamin D. If your vitamin D is low, you have insulin resistance. Insulin will hold down vitamin D. [60:10] The Relationship Between Adrenals, Insulin, and Cortisol We beat up the adrenals a lot as the culprit for fatigue and adrenal fatigue. However, only a third of the cortisol is actually made in the adrenal. The brain makes a third of the cortisol because it is highly sensitive to inflammation. It makes cortisol to keep inflammation levels as low as possible. When you burn fat, it's an inflammatory process. We will recycle about 1.3% of our cells a day. What matters is how efficient you are in the process. [73:45] An Overweight Diabetic Only Has To Lose One Gram For an overweight type two data to become a normal person, how much weight do they have to lose? People think it's 10% of their body weight. However, the answer is one gram. The gram has to come out of the pancreas. If a 350 lb. person loses one gram from the pancreas, they will no longer be a diabetic. AND MUCH MORE!

She grew up in a humble home and learned a lot from her parents' experiences; she learned to use her hands from her carpenter father and long hours of work from her nurse mother. She graduated from nursing school, worked at a high-security prison palliative care, and realized she wanted to be a skin doctor after a lot of in-depth thought. She became an expert in her field, taught other doctors, and now she has gotten into research. She aims to inspire others to be more beautiful and radiant through body, mind, and spirit energy and detoxification. 4 Secrets to Mastering Keto Masterclass.

Without gut testing, you will miss the mark. This is biohacking, and this is what changed Rachel's life. From a gut perspective, she also includes detoxing and cleaning protocols every full moon to keep things like yeast, fungi, toxins, and parasites out of the system. This transformed her life physically, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically. Through this fast of food, sleep, sex, and alcohol, she felt changed. This event positively affected her skin and cleared it. It even removed PMS systems from her cycle. [13:25] Skin health Skin health is an excellent way to know about somebody's overall health Some cues give away about one's gut through skin issues that they have The first is the eyes: puffy eyes could indicate inflammation. The inner eyelid area can also mean that something is going on inside. When you start consuming a lot of sugar, alcohol, and dairy, if it's not something you are used to, you will notice the effects on your skin after a couple of days. Puffiness, redness to the nose, acne, effects on nails, etc., are some of the things that may pop up. Brain fog is another significant consequence of bad health.   [19:22] Supplements A product with omegas and other essential nutrients from a particular company This company has been working for the past fifteen years This product will give you a golden type of glow, and it helps with pigmentation Rachel did a study for six to eight weeks with her cohort, and the results were the same: reduction in puffiness, reduction in redness, reduction in darkness, pigmentation fading, and so on. Photography and research are so important to know for sure. [22:27] What is the reason behind dark circles? The number one reason why guys complain is the eyes. The skin around the eyes, especially the lower eyelid area, is as thin as an eggshell. You could be lacking collagen, hydration, healthy fats, etc. Skin care comes, and sun protection can help. Other solutions include Vitamin C, Vitamin A, dermal rolling, and getting lasers done. [28:40] Foods that are bad for your skin and why? Dairy is related to gut disturbance and causes inflammation, damaging the skin. Gluten is also inflammatory for most people and causes the same problem. Alcohol taxes your liver and indirectly affects your gut. Raw kale and spinach are on the list as well. Vegetables and corn oils also make it to the list and shouldn't be consumed or put on the skin. [39:21] What are some ways to tighten the skin after weight loss? It has to be surgery often, but if you put in the work, you can make it work without it. If you do the work and make good life decisions, you can make it possible. A positive mindset will also enable you to see improvements. Heavy lifting and derma rolling can help. Derma rolling is a decades-old practice, and you can have more collagen with the consistent use of this particular tool. Even senior citizens between the age of sixty and eighty have seen positive results after its use. Lasers are also an excellent option, but they are costly. [44:45] What does Rachel have on her website? All of her favorite things: personal care products, grooming products, hair growth stimulating effects, skincare products, and so much more. She works with a lot of brands, and she narrows them down. She even has quality supplements that are clean of toxins and work perfectly. She even gave everyone a fifteen percent discount. [46:40] How can you get rid of cellulite? Every time you take a bath, take it with one of her pineapple oils. Pick up a rounded ceramic product, take it into the bath, and use it against your skin. Be consistent to see results. AND MUCH MORE! Rachel Varga's website: https://rachelvarga.ca/  Use code KETOKAMP for 15% off site wide.

Welcome to the Keto Kamp Podcast. Today we have with us Narado Zeco Powell who is going to join us on our conversation about metabolism flexibility, fasting, high blood pressure, and digestion.  In this podcast, Powell shares with us his incredibly inspiring story, taking us through his early childhood and what marked the onset of his journey towards a health-conscious life.  He grew up in Jamaica and was raised by his grandparents. Like any other kid, he loved candies, junk, and everything sweet. Unfortunately, though, he developed eczema, high blood pressure, and asthma in his early twenties. Weight issues were also a continuous struggle that led to the deterioration of his health but one day Powell decided to start fresh, to fight everything that was holding him back and that is when he started his fitness journey, experimenting with working out, lifting weights and eating healthy! 4 Secrets to Mastering Keto Masterclass.

Breathing becomes a lot easier and effort free. It removed his asthma and eczema problems for years. You also start feeling better. Even without the medications, he is perfectly healthy as his body healed itself. Eliminate things from your diet as this would reduce excess harmful elements from your body. [15:53] Sleep, seed oil, processed foods, and fasting If you sleep properly and at the proper time, you will not just feel better but will also age slower. Replace seed oil with olive oil, butter, or avocado oil. Pro tip: if you go to a restaurant just tell the waiter you and everyone on the table are allergic to seed oil. Processed foods are not what you should be putting in your body. You must remove processed foods from your diet and eat real clean whole food. Fasting is amazing- your sleep hours even count. Healing the gut, bouncing your sugar levels, fat oxidation, and training your body are all achieved by fasting.  Fasting if done right can be a very powerful tool. You give your digestive system a break. [23:15] A twenty-four hours once a week, and why does he do it? The dinner-to-dinner fast helped to increase the time of his fast oxidation. Lengthening the fast and doing a full day fast helps make him feel like superman. Tap into the knowledge of our ancestors and include the new research; studies aren't supposed to overwhelm you. You must incorporate how something makes you feel; if you feel energized with something do it. Start your fasts small and then build up. [30:40] How to overcome a standstill in weight; when you can't seem to lose more weight It depends on what you have been doing to lose weight; was it keto, vegetarian diet, intermittent fasting, and so on? It also depends on the period you have been doing what you have been for losing that weight. Your body gets efficient at breaking down fat and you reach a plateau after a certain time; you need to cycle the carbs back in. This way your body becomes better at breaking fats back again. Easier to switch back to carbs and take in the enzymes. This switching back and forth is an easier way to go about it; you need to create diversity in the gut. Our ancestors would have a diverse line of foods that they consumed. [39:50] Bio-individuality and the elimination method People should remove vegetables but only for some time and they should be added back in gradually. You don't know what is affecting you until you eliminate the suspects; you don't know what anti-nutrients are responding to you. A carnivore diet for a while can help improve your gut. After this has happened which can be between one to three months you start adding plant foods to your diet slowly. This way you get to realize what is affecting you through your gut-healing journey. It Helps identify allergies. But first, you must go on a gradual approach to searching for yourself. [44:00] The glucose monitor (CGM) and the Oura ring Your glucose monitor can pick up the signs and aware you. Oura ring is a tool; HRV drops with eating more plant toxins and vice versa means that a carnivore diet suits you the best. Ray's blood sugar pattern picks up when he wakes up. It drops during his fasting period but picks up gradually. This is because his body is optimal. This is because of having more muscles too. If your body is optimized, your blood sugar does not go up drastically. Teach people to be optimal and be the healthier version of themselves. AND MUCH MORE!

Whereas mainstream doctors want you to believe that it's all or nothing. Here are some other questions you need to consider when thinking about mold illness: How many mycotoxins might be trapped in your tissues? How much mold exposure are you getting? How resilient is your body against mold? How robust are your detox systems and immune system? [11:50] How To Know If You Are Living With Mold Fungi feeds on carbohydrates and rotting material. Something you should consider is the role of fungi in the natural world. Fungi will break down dead carbon-based material to recycle nutrients back to the soil. Overall, it plays a very important role in our ecosystem. In fact, fungi seem to be a normal part of our gut microbiome. It trains our immune system and matures our immune system. Most people will find mold in their living environment. The US Environmental Protection Authority developed ERMI to provide a straightforward way to assess mold and indoor air quality investigations. Learn more about ERMI here: https://www.envirobiomics.com/product/ermi/ We have to think about the degree of mold exposure in the environment, the frequency, and the mold load. [20:25] What To Do If You Know You Have Mold In Your Home There's a very fine line between creating a problem where there isn't one versus identifying a healing opportunity where there is one. We are all exposed to a lot of bad things every single day. So, we can't make it sound like if you're at all exposed, you're going to be ill. The biggest thing you need to think about is if you have symptoms. However, if you're living in a compromised environment, it's probably just a matter of time before you do start developing symptoms. The first option is to remediate and reduce the fungal load to improve the home's air quality. Otherwise, it would be best if you moved out of your home.

One day, Brendan's fiancé at the time woke up with an unrelenting cramp. Eventually, she became emaciated. Brendan had fatigue, and it compounded his depressive tendencies. Unfortunately, Brendan's fiancé was the canary in the coal mine. Sadly, they ended up separating because it became such a toxic and volatile situation. Four years later, Brendan got the news that she had taken her own life. [34:30] EMFs Are Damaging The Body Humans are so disconnected from our innate intuition. The radiation that's being emitted from our electronic devices cannot be good for us. We need a lot more studies when it comes to EMFs and damaging our bodies. EMFs are already categorized as a probable carcinogen. We as a species, as a collective, are lacking tolerance to both mold and this radiation. [37:30] Reducing The Damage EMFs Can Have On Your Body The most important thing you can do is reduce the exposure. Turn off your wi-fi router at night. Put your phone on airplane mode. There's not a ton that you can do to reduce the exposure because it is everywhere. Instead, think about what you can control. [43:55] What Brendan Is Most Looking Forward To This Year Brendan is grateful to niche down in the mold world. Brendan is focusing on mental health and a functional medicine approach to mental health. Plus, Brendan is excited to start writing his book, and he is speaking at IMMH.
