<p>www.becomeproof.com<br /> www.30in30.org - a free tool we have created for people to help take ownership of their health.</p> <h2><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><strong>AutoImmunity</strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/autoimmunity/"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/autoimmunity</strong></a></span></p> <p>Many people suffer from autoimmunity. But because sometimes the symptoms can be confusing, people fail to seek immediate treatment for autoimmunity. My guest today, Dr. Jared Seigler has an amazing story on how his journey led him to help people address autoimmunity conditions.</p> <h3>Stumbled By Accident</h3> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler relates that he stumbled into functional medicine by accident. It started when his wife was struggling to conceive for years because she was suffering from PCOS. After almost five years of searching for answers, they were even contemplating on adopting a child.</p> <p>But Dr. Jared Seigler refused to give up mainly since his wife was just 23 years old at the time. He was even subjected to a stool test wherein they found parasites so Dr. Jared Seigler also underwent treatment.</p> <p>After years of searching for answers and countless treatments, the couple was finally blessed with a daughter who is now five years old.</p> <h3>Helminth Parasites</h3> <p>Helminths are parasitic worms, and parasites are known manipulators of the immune system. The first time Dr. Jared Seigler got exposed to it was six years ago when one of his lupus patients called him. That patient claimed to feel better because of her dog’s licks. She was not taking any drugs nor any supplements. </p> <p>“What good parasites can do, is act like a probiotic for the parasite. As they manipulate the immune system to hide from it, so the immune system doesn’t attack it, they also suppress the immune system that is causing autoimmunity,” Dr. Jared Seigler said. </p> <p>He adds, “I’m not anti-parasite. When I look autoimmunity and probiotics research, it’s a hit or miss. There is even research showing that for example, Crohn’s is due to the immune system in some cases, losing tolerance to normal bacteria.”</p> <p>But Dr. Jared Seigler clarifies that when we see someone being given a beneficial parasite consistently, that can take away a lot of autoimmune symptoms. He says dead bacteria behaves utterly different than a live bacteria. Some of the most potent stimulators of inflammation in the gut are dead bacteria that they use in the modern dairy industry. </p> <h3>The Truth About Milk</h3> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler believes the gut has to quit getting colostrum from mother’s milk. Hence, a mom has to stop breastfeeding for the gut to grow.</p> <p>“The premise that we need milk for health has been purely built on BS. The research goes the other way,” explains Dr. Jared Seigler. “Technically, when you look at it on a big enough scale, 100% of the world is lactose-intolerant. It takes five gallons of milk a day or a sip to be able to reset intolerance of sugars in the milk.”</p> <h3>Understanding Autoimmunity</h3> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler readily shares that he has autoimmunity as well as his wife. So, he clearly knows he can’t go back to eating the way he used to eat. Dr. Jared Seigler is also aware that he is not perfect just because he has changed his lifestyle to a healthier one. But he loves being a work in progress. That is why his passion lies in also helping people get their bodies to a place where they can heal.</p> <p>“With the whole premises of autoimmunity, there’s the genetic susceptibility component. I truly don’t believe the immune system makes a mistake with autoimmunity,” said Dr. Jared Seigler. “I believe the immune system is being tricked and overwhelmed in that scenario.” </p> <p>He adds, “Once the immune system recognizes it as a problem, we have to think about what is driving certain things for autoimmunity like molecular mimicry. For molecular mimicry, the immune system initially recognizes something bad like identifying characteristics. Once it progresses, it can start epitope spreading.”</p> <h3>Human Microbiome Project</h3> <p>The Human Microbiome Project tries to figure out all the bacteria in our gut, and skin, as well as figuring out what all these bacteria do and how they influence our genes. Dr. Jared Seigler says bacteria pitifully outnumber us.</p> <p>“One of the things that the Microbiome Project started to make clearer is that it is really about the diversity of bacteria more than anything,” said Dr. Jared Seigler.</p> <p>Apparently, there about ten times more viruses inside the gut than there are bacteria. So, there’s a whole concept called the microbiome. Plus, there’s a microbiome where we can vividly see worms.</p> <p>“Someone’s microbiome is like a thumbprint. I think a lot of these companies are data-mining people’s microbiomes,” Dr. Jared Seigler said. “They are giving away these costly tests for relatively nothing. For the 23andMe, they were selling people’s genetic data to pharma companies.”</p> <h3>Cold Showers</h3> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler reveals that he is also a big fan of cold showers. What it does as far as glutathione production, neurotransmitter production, and microbiome change, it that we weren’t designed to be 72 degrees year-round. Just like we weren’t intended to eat the same food.</p> <p>He says taking cold showers changes how mitochondria functions. It also changes antioxidants, changes how our body utilizes and breaks down a lot of things as well as making people warm. </p> <h3>Eating Real Food</h3> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler says as far as figuring out the cause of autoimmunity; he never blames food as long as it is real food. He believes that in the long run, probably one of the worse things someone can do is restrict a lot of their food diversity.</p> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler also believes that doing a three-day fast can be beneficial.  And as far as recommending the best prebiotics, he advises thinking of prebiotics as fiber. Think of fiber like fruits and vegetables. Eat different fruits and vegetables if you want different prebiotics.</p> <p>On the other hand, I have had Chinese medicine practitioner Sarica Cernohous on the show who attested to the benefits of eating fermented foods. Shifting her family to eat at least one fermented food a day eventually strengthened their gut.</p> <p>“I would rather somebody eat fermented foods than try to take it in a capsule. Because traditionally, that’s how we would get probiotics from the fermentation process,” said Dr. Jared Seigler. “It might not necessarily beat all the bacteria that’s in there, but as the bacteria is eating that food, their poop is what we’re after. They change genetic expression.”</p> <h3>Gluten Sensitivity</h3> <p>According to Dr. Jared Seigler, gluten sensitivity is the genetic predisposition. That is why we see such a huge correlation between autoimmunity and gluten sensitivity.</p> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler also mentions that he took Dr. Tom O’ Bryan and Dr. Peter Osbone’s gluten certification course. He took the classes after deciding to go gluten-free when his wife was diagnosed with celiac.</p> <p>“My energy and depression got better, and my anxiety and brain fog disappeared. I see people on so many different spectrums. Some people don’t even know what gluten is,” said Dr. Jared Seigler.</p> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler says there are even case studies of ALS being gluten sensitive with a 100% resolution upon going on a gluten-free diet. So, it eliminates the inflammation. We dramatically see that when we start to remove problematic foods.</p> <h3>Functional Neurology</h3> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler explains that from 0 to 6 years old, brain waves of a child is similar to how we dream or store long-term memories. It is similar to dreaming while they are awake.</p> <p>As soon as it happens inside of a child’s brain, their subconscious now operates on an entirely different level. And this is where you can measure some things like heart rate variability.</p> <p>“I love doing a thing called Functional Neurology. Most people know about functional medicine, but functional neurology is like a personal trainer for your brain. You can exercise different parts of the brain to increase its function,” said Dr. Jared Seigler.</p> <h3>The Power Of Thoughts</h3> <p>Dr. Jared Seigler explains that we always think food may be poisoning our autoimmune disease. So, if you’re only eating 4 to 5 times a day, you have the potential to poison yourself 4 to 5 times a day.</p> <p>But we have anywhere around 30,000 thoughts a day and only 1% may be bad. That’s still hundreds of times a day we poison ourselves with a thought. Technically, a toxin can be a thought or a relationship.</p> <p>“So, if we know that these bad thoughts have negative effects, you can feel your blood pressure rising,” Dr. Jared Seigler explains. “That’s your stress response shifting into high gear. You change your physiology with thoughts. Generosity and gratitude are the two strongest positive emotions.”</p> <p>A positive mindset is powerful. Dr. Jared Seigler usually advises people suffering from addiction to write on a journal and focus on what they are grateful for.</p> <p>“You can get over addiction by diluting it until it is socially acceptable. With an addiction to food, in particular, we can tell when somebody is ready to make a change to the question they are asking. Ultimately, the brain wants to feel normal,” said Dr. Jared Seigler. “The body has never made a mistake. It is just doing what it can in the environment that it’s in. </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Dr. Jared Seigler, Doctor of Chiropractic and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, practices in West Chester, Ohio.

249 The Relationship Between Your Food and Your Emotional and Mental Health with Ph.D. Raw Vegan Phycologist Dr. Glenn Livingston and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p> <a href= "http://www.NeverBingeAgain.com">http://www.NeverBingeAgain.com</a></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Impact Of Eating Right</strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/impact-eating-right/"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/impact-eating-right/</strong></a></span></p> <p>Most of us shrug off the importance and impact of eating right. With my returning guest today, we covered things like binge eating and strategies on how to eat as well as develop willpower. Today, Dr. Glenn Livingston is back on the show to talk about our relationship with food as well as the impact of eating right towards achieving a good mental and emotional health.</p> <h3>Helping People</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston, not a medical doctor, but rather a psychologist. So, he’s genuinely a good resource person who could expound on how the impact of eating right can benefit us in so many ways.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston helps people on all sorts of diets. I suggest that everyone must sign up for his newsletter as well as download his free Never Binge Again book from his website.</p> <p>He is a raw vegan. And when Dr. Glenn Livingston works with people, he does it the context of a coach. Rarely does he talk about his diet. He says this is because people are most likely going to become resistant if they think they had to be a raw vegan like Dr. Glenn Livingston.</p> <h3>Raw Vegan Diet</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston eats almost entirely fruits and vegetables. He gets enough protein and calcium which he says made him feel stronger, sleep better, normalize his blood pressure, as well as made his psoriasis and eczema disappear.</p> <p>“I have no problem staying relatively thin, and I have no tremendous carb or salt cravings. It’s something I have evolved into over the course of so many years,” shares Dr. Glenn Livingston. </p> <p>He adds, “Every time I got rid of some industrially processed food, I ask myself what authentic physiological, biological need I have for these foods. And I start to train myself to crave for healthier things.” </p> <h3>Foods To Avoid</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston believes that food has been demonized, along with all of the processed carbohydrates. Knowing the impact of eating right is essential now more than ever. We must fix our relationship with food before it’s too late.</p> <p>“I’m very much not in favor of people indulging in a lot of starch and sugar. It’s a big part of the downfall of our health and society,” Dr. Glenn Livingston said. “The American Diabetic Association does not encourage you to limit fruit or whole food. There’s a lot of fear and demonization of fruit in particular.”</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston also reveals that there’s another culprit people are not paying attention to. He says fat acts as an insulator. Studies show that unfortunately, 30 to 40% of the American diet contains fat.</p> <p>“If you drop it down to the 10% range, the uptake transport and absorption of sugar and oxygen are dramatically better. You’ll notice this in your ability to breathe better, and your performance at the gym improves dramatically,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “Cardiovascular performance will also improve. It’s incredible we’re not aware we are creating problems by putting so much fat in our system.”</p> <h3>Mother’s Experience</h3> <p>When Dr. Glenn Livingston was 15 years old, his mother had some few cancerous tumors in her uterus. She saw an alternative healer who suggested going on a vegan diet instead of having a hysterectomy.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston’s mother was not even 40 years old when she was diagnosed, so she also hesitated to have the surgery done. Deciding to go on a vegan diet for six months, her tumors reversed, and she eventually didn’t have to have a hysterectomy. From that point on, Dr. Glenn Livingston was determined to become a vegan, too.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston’s mother eventually went off on the vegan diet and lived for another 35 years later or so before she passed away. But Dr. Glenn Livingston was already convinced that there was something special about the vegan diet, although he strayed from the vegan diet during his college years. </p> <h3>Finding The Right Diet</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston recalls coming across a book in graduate school about cancer. It reminded him of the vegan connection that’s why he decided to go back to a vegan diet. But he still didn’t understand everything back then.</p> <p>Labeling himself a junk food vegan then, Dr. Glenn Livingston thought eating pasta, candy, and fried foods were okay as long as it wasn’t animal products. Not surprisingly, he didn’t get very healthy on that diet.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston married a year after that, although he’s divorced now. He shares that he was married to a woman who was brought up in a deli and the Atkins diet was gaining popularity that time.</p> <p>But his ex-spouse apparently had a friend who was studying nutrition and advocated a low carb diet. Unfortunately, Dr. Glenn Livingston, couldn’t stick to the diet. He couldn’t seem to achieve the impact of eating right, so he wasn’t really in tip-top shape during his 30s and 40s.</p> <h3>Constant Research</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston kept reading books in the hope that he could find the right kind of diet for him. He came across <a href="https://amzn.to/2HKSdBF" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The China Study by T. Colin Campbell</a>. The book explained the author’s research in China, where they looked at the correlation between the different health conditions and diet. </p> <p>“Cancer was very much associated with the level of animal protein that people had. If people can keep their level of animal protein under 5%, they would have virtually no cancer whatsoever,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston also started to look for some books about vegan nutrition. He came across <a href= "https://amzn.to/2HblrbL" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Eat To Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman</a>, who was advocating against animal protein. Incidentally, Dr. Joel Fuhrman was a former guest in one of my episodes.</p> <p>I was hooked on meat before and took me a while to come around. Dr. Joel Fuhrman was very thorough in explaining everything about animal protein. I love his very science-based approach towards making a diet.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston also cited the book <a href= "https://amzn.to/2HaLGTE" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession with Meat Is Killing Us, by Dr. Garth Davis and Howard Jacobson</a>. The book is about the science of protein addiction and why we don’t need it.</p> <p>“Our muscles are supposed to produce these energy-giving substances, but when you eat animal protein, the body stops producing those substances,” Dr. Glenn Livingston explains. “When you stop eating meat, people feel exhausted. They don’t feel well because it takes a while for their muscles to upregulate and start producing it again.” </p> <p>He adds, “That’s why people think they need it. Same for sugar. But food cravings will go away quicker than you think, usually within four days.” </p> <h3>Seeing A Change</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston says that although he got healthy following a low protein diet, he still had little psoriasis. Plus, he still had weight issues. But now that on a raw vegan diet, Dr. Glenn Livingston’s health significantly improved. He finally felt he was on the right track after seeing the impact of eating right.</p> <p>According to Dr. Glenn Livingston, <a href= "https://amzn.to/2HKSLaH" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Victoria Boutenko’s book (Green Smoothie Revolution)</a> on raw foods is a good resource for making green smoothies. He drinks green smoothies especially during the days when he craves for chocolate.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston persevered and kept trying different green smoothie recipes. It’s not the same high compared to eating chocolate, but the craving would go away. After a few months, he noticed his craving started to shift to green smoothies!</p> <p>“I always believe these cravings that we think we can’t live without, there’s an authentic biological reason behind it,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.</p> <h3>Fruits And Vegetables</h3> <p>To better understand the benefits of incorporating fruits and vegetables into your diet, Dr. Glenn Livingston recommends <a href="https://amzn.to/2vo3C87" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Dr. Doug Graham’s 80/10/10 diet</a>. In formulating the 80/10/10 diet, Dr. Doug Graham says we’re meant to live on fruits and vegetables, as well as a handful of nuts and seeds.</p> <p>Part of the belief system is also saying we are not supposed to cook food. Because apparently, cooking creates all sorts of toxins.  It is energy-draining and has life-killing substances, so Dr. Glenn Livingston felt better eating raw.</p> <p>“I hired a coach, got to meet Dr. Doug Graham and attended workshops. I now speak for low-fat, raw veganism. It’s difficult to get used to. You have to eat more volume than you’re used to, and you have to commit,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston’s diet primarily consists of smoothies, lettuce, bananas, mangoes, strawberries, and sometimes dates. He also likes to make cucumber noodles topped with a sauce made of tomatoes, lemon juice, and dates which were Dr. Glenn Livingston’s significant weight loss trick.</p> <h3>Effect On Emotional And Mental Health</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston says when you put things into your body that your body has to recover from, it affects the physiological energy of the nervous system. Our body goes into digesting it, eliminating and isolating the toxins to deal with the enormous task that you give it.</p> <p>“And when all the energy is put into that, it doesn’t have the energy to conduct the emotions. So, you’re not present in the way you could be. You’re also not able to feel the emotions the way you could be,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “And you’re not able to feel. This is why people say they need food for comfort. Because it does act as a kind of anesthetic to numb the feeling we have.” </p> <p>He adds, “But I also think that there is a pleasure response, like the feeling we get with drugs. Because we’re being provided with substances that concentrates pleasurable substances.”</p> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston furthermore explains that we wind up with a whole cascade of events in the nervous system that distorts and perverts its pleasurable response to natural stimuli. When you eliminate that, then people can feel, be present and ultimately, they can think.</p> <h3>Maintaining The Willpower</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston believes that what we are built for with our psychology, is to operate according to character. He says that when you make character statements and adopt them into what person you want to be, and how you want food to play in your life, then the obsession is less. </p> <p>“There’s always the possibility of reawakening that old pathway. Our bodies are normally flexible. There’s a principle in research called neuroplasticity. Every time you have a craving, you are rewiring your brain to say, this craving equals to this food instead,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.</p> <p>In line with that train of thought, <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/fasting-for-healing/">I had Dr. Alan Goldhammer on the show</a>, who talked about the benefits of eliminating salt, oil, and sugar, as well as tips on how to deal with cravings. Another informative episode was with <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease/">Dr. Esselstyn, a cardiac surgeon who reverses heart disease with diet.</a> He spoke in detail ways on how to train the brain to eat natural things.</p> <p>“You don’t have to eat super healthy. Start with one change that has a noticeable impact on health,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “And more importantly, an impact and ability to make a commitment and stick to it. Because you can build on that.”</p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long-time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>His previous work, theories, and research have been published in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, and American Demographics.  He has also guested on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Glenn Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.</em><em> </em></p> <h3>Get Connected with Dr. Glenn Livingston:</h3> <p><strong><a href="https://neverbingeagain.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.fixyourfoodproblem.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Fix Your Problem</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/NeverBingeAgain/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.instagram.com/livingstonglenn/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.neverbingeagain.com/TheBlog/podcast-2/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Never Binge Again Podcast</a></strong></p> <h3>Book by Dr. Glenn Livingston</h3> <p><strong><a href= "https://neverbingeagain.com/index.php/main/readerbonuses" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Never Binge Again Book –  GET IT FOR FREE HERE!!!</a></strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=151516294X&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=151516294X" alt="" /> <h3>Recommended Reading by Dr. Glenn Livingston:</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2BR8jJ1" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Rational Recovery</a> by Jack Trimpey</strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0671528580&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0671528580" alt="" /> <p><strong>Recommended Links:</strong></p> <p><strong>Episode 56 – <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/dr-glenn-livingston-end-binge-eating/">How To End Binge Eating </a>– Dr. Glenn Livingston</strong></p> <p><strong>Episode 230 – <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/fasting-for-healing/">Fasting For Healing</a> – Dr. Alan Goldhammer</strong></p> <p><strong>Episode 231 – <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/willpower-stop-bingeing/">Willpower To Stop Bingeing</a> – Dr. Glenn Livingston</strong></p> <p><strong>Episode 232 – <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease/">Heart Disease</a> – Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn</strong></p> <p><strong>Episode 242 – <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/eating-right/">Eating Right</a> – Dr. Joel Fuhrman</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://amzn.to/2HKSdBF" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The China Study</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://amzn.to/2HblrbL" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Eat To Live</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://amzn.to/2HaLGTE" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Proteinaholic</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://amzn.to/2HKSLaH" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Green Smoothie Revolution</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://amzn.to/2vo3C87" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The 80/10/10 Diet</a></strong></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Support Us on Patreon & <strong>Join the Learn True Health Book Club</strong>!!!

248 Ph.D. MD Neurogastroenterologist Discovers Man Made Gut Issue Affecting Millions, SIFO, SIBO, Acid Reflux, Disbyosis, Fungus, Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth with Dr. Satish Rao and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><a href= "http://www.augusta.edu/mcg/medicine/gastro/faculty">http://www.augusta.edu/mcg/medicine/gastro/faculty</a></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>SIBO And SIFO</strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/sibo-and-sifo/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/sibo-and-sifo/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p><strong>SIBO</strong> (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) and <strong>SIFO</strong> (Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth) are two health conditions plaguing many people today. SIBO stands for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and SIFO stands for small intestinal fungal overgrowth. Respected expert Dr. Satish Rao is here with us today to explain what SIBO and SIFO are all about and how to treat it.</p> <p>This episode was hard for me to do since Dr. Satish Rao is an allopathic doctor. His way of treating SIBO and SIFO is different from experts in Natural Medicine, but his research about SIBO and SIFO is worth talking about.</p> <p>I have been recently tackling topics about gut health and the best treatment for gut issues. So, I highly recommend everyone to listen to episodes <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/sunlighten-saunas/">245</a></strong> and <strong><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/gut-issues/">247</a></strong>.</p> <h3>Family of Physicians</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao came from a family of physicians. His father was a Professor of Medicine and a University Dean.</p> <p>When he was young, Dr. Satish Rao recalls that his father used to carry around a Sheaffer pen with a white dot on it. He wanted the pen, but his father told him only doctors could have that pen. That apparently became Dr. Satish Rao’s motivation to become a doctor.</p> <p>Dr. Satish Rao pursued medical studies in India and took post-graduate studies in England. He, later on, discovered that deficiency of selenium causes cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy.</p> <p>Dr. Satish Rao also learned about gastroenterology and focused on research as well as an essential area of the gut called Neurogastroenterology and motility. That branch of medicine was still in its infancy in the early 80s. Dr. Satish Rao was mentored by two outstanding professors and has helped many patients.</p> <p>“We have been able to understand some key disorders and dysfunctions in the gut and find a remedy to help them. That’s been my journey over the past 25 years,” said Dr. Satish Rao.</p> <h3>Understanding Nutrition</h3> <p>Medical doctors are not taught nutrition and how food plays a significant role in our gut health. We are just given drug after drug. Dr. Satish Rao, on the other hand, identified a new illness that is man-made because of drugs and over prescription. He’s a very conventional doctor but is treated as an outsider by the community.</p> <p>Dr. Satish Rao says he would love to implement diet and a healthy lifestyle as a solution for health problems. Having practiced in three different continents—India, U.K. and the United States, Dr. Satish Rao feels it is tough to teach people proper nutrition, especially in the United States.</p> <p>“One of the hardest things I found in America is to change people’s behavior, culture and eating habits. Every patient in India, asks me restrictions on their diet,” shares Dr. Satish Rao. “But in the United States, I never get that question. Even when I advise them, it is very hard for people to change.” </p> <p>He adds,”I do believe there are tremendous things one can do to change their lifestyle and behavior and that can do along with healing. But it has to be done in tandem with other things that we can do as physicians and the prescription drugs. It cannot be done without it.” </p> <h3>Right Mindset</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao also makes it clear that in the long-term, it is not the drugs that are going to help and conquer the problem. He says it is probably their lifestyle issues that will give the long-term remedy.</p> <p>Unfortunately, American and Canadian cultures are similar. Americans and Canadians are not raised to see that their lifestyle has an impact on their health. Countries like India, on the other hand, is more in touch with Holistic healing.</p> <p>“In the U.K., the patient I had were very willing to institute changes and take on recommendations. In the United States, I don’t think people like to change. They may, under some duress but it’s not going to come soon,” predicted Dr. Satish Rao.</p> <p>We have seen a difference in the last five years. I remember having a demographer on the show who said the millennials—aged 14 to 33, have now outnumbered the baby boomers and the generation in between. Millenials have a different mindset, and I hope they would change their mind before it’s too late.</p> <h3>Symptoms of SIBO and SIFO</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao says he tends to see a challenging group of SIBO and SIFO patients from all over the country and internationally as well. He says people suffering from SIBO and SIFO usually have significant unexplained symptoms of bloating, pain and gas.</p> <p>“To characterize if there was indeed an infection in the gut, we look inside the stomach lining or small bowel lining and see if there is anything unusual. Then we’ll take biopsies. Or if there is celiac disease, we will take biopsies, too,” said Dr. Satish Rao.</p> <p>According to Dr. Satish Rao, there’s also a test wherein it takes 24 hours to study a patient’s gut motility. This is to see if the muscles and nerves are working or not. Another option is taking juice from the small bowel to study if there is an infection in the patient’s small bowel. Dr. Satish Rao then sends the specimen to the microbiology lab to see if it would grow any bacteria or fungal organisms.</p> <h3>Test Findings</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao reveals that he has encountered different findings over the years. In the mid-90s, doctors will treat patients with antibiotics if there is a bacterial infection. Treatment for fungus it is administered in another way.</p> <p>Then fast forward 2005 or 2006, Dr. Satish Rao thought of doing further research on SIBO and SIFO. The results became quite controversial.</p> <p>When Dr. Satish Rao and his team looked at the data carefully, they found that a quarter of the patients had exclusive fungal overgrowth. A quarter had a mix of bacteria and fungus. Another group had pure bacteria, and 30 to 40% of patients were clean.</p> <p>“Then I tried to publish that work. But lo and behold, if you’re ahead of the curve in the medical literature, you get frown upon. No one would accept it. They wanted to publish my work on SIBO thought my research about fungus was rubbish,” said Dr. Satish Rao.</p> <p>In around 2010, Dr. Satish Rao finally found a very reputable journal that was willing to publish his findings. For the first time, the SIBO and SIFO were published as a major G.I. article. Now, there was more recognition that this is a valid entity. </p> <h3>When Should We Be Alarmed?</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao says that a significant growth pertains to a thousand colony-forming fungi per milliliter of fluid or more. Some of them grow a million or more. Aside from that, Dr. Satish Rao says we should also remember the area from where it is growing.</p> <p>“The stomach is full of hydrochloric acid. It has a strong way of attacking and killing bacteria, fungus, and everything,” explains Dr. Satish Rao. “The duodenum is the tube that comes out of the stomach, and we are sampling within the first 6-9 in of the stomach.” </p> <p>He adds, “It is an area continuously bathed in stomach acid, and it has a very high exposure to the acidic environment. So, in that area, there should be no bacteria or fungus. If there is, then there is a problem.”</p> <p>Unfortunately, Dr. Satish Rao says, looking at symptoms profiles, we are not able to distinguish who has this condition or not. Those who have and don’t have an overgrowth have very similar symptom profiles. And he says that the only way to separate it is by doing the culture.</p> <h3>Understanding Fungus Infection</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao says that fungus infection can be anywhere in the body. Typically, he says people who have an underlying depressed immune system, like with cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, HIV infection, are strong candidates.</p> <p>“These are a prime group of individuals who don’t have the right immunity to ward off infection from fungus. And fungus is naturally present on our skin, in our mouth and areas exposed to the environment. It is normal for them to be there,” Dr. Satish Rao said. </p> <p>He adds, “But when something happens inside the body like an infection, diabetes, overuse of steroids or antibiotics, it is a risk for fungus infection. But two factors stood out about our patients. One was the use of proton pump inhibitor and the presence of small intestinal dysmotility. They increase the risk to develop SIFO.”</p> <h3>Impact of Drugs</h3> <p>It is not surprising that the overuse of drugs has an impact on the gut. According to Dr. Satish Rao, the gut has a very interesting program of small intestinal dysmotility, typically the upper gut.</p> <p>Dr. Satish Rao explains that every 90 minutes or so, as long as you remain fasting, there is a beautiful, strong, sweeping process that goes through the gut and sweeps its way through the colon. It happens every 60 to 90 minutes.</p> <p>If this pattern doesn’t happen, they say you have a problem in your small bowel. This means you no longer have the capability to clean its contents.</p> <p>“The problem of SIBO and SIFO is unfortunately man-made. I have been practicing G.I. for 25 to 30 years, and I don’t believe I’ve seen that many patients with these kinds of symptoms for a long time,” said Dr. Satish Rao. “It’s no question that we recognize it, and we are diagnosing it. But we were never using these powerful drugs for this length of time.”</p> <h3>Recommended Treatment</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao usually tries to eradicate the problem through a 3-week course of antifungal therapy with fluconazole. Fluconazole gets absorbed into the bloodstream and acts on the problem. Dr. Satish Rao explains that he has to maintain people on antibiotics because of the underlying gut motility problem. Plus, patients need long-term treatment.</p> <p>“The other component of treatment gets rid of any potential and incriminating factors. If they have a motility problem, I can try and place them on drugs that stimulate motility. Unfortunately, we don’t have many good drugs, so I try to give those drugs in small amounts,” said Dr. Satish Rao.</p> <p>As for administering intravenous magnesium, Dr. Satish Rao has not used it to treat patients. He says magnesium tends to have a calming effect rather than a stimulating effect on gut motility. So that is why it is not Dr. Satish Rao’s drug of choice for his patients.</p> <h3>Role Of Food</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao recommends more acidic-containing food because the fungus hates an acidic environment. This way, we can kill off the fungal bacteria through acidic foods.</p> <p>“But more acidic food can also trigger reflux symptoms. There should be a fine balance between acidic and alkaline foods. Look also at your tolerance for different food products. I usually have my patients do a three-day food chart then come up with a formula diet,” clarifies Dr. Satish Rao. </p> <h3>Other Concerns</h3> <p>Dr. Satish Rao also reveals that people who had surgery in the gut, particularly colon surgery, is the classic set up for SIBO. People who had this surgery have disrupted the normal barriers between the small and large bowel. But despite that, Dr. Satish Rao was quick to explain that he’s not disputing the reason for the surgery. He’s just saying that unfortunately, that group of individuals are highly susceptible and prone to SIBO and SIFO.</p> <p>“Most patients go on lifelong antibiotics because we have no other way of preventing it. But I don’t treat them with large doses. I recommend maintenance doses and the easiest regime usually a week to ten days or after a month. There are only a few who need continuously,” said Dr. Satish Rao.</p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Dr. Satish Rao received his MD from Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, India, his Ph.D. from the University of Sheffield, U.K., and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP) in London, UK, in 1997.

247 Resolving Gut Issues, Depression, Fatigue, and Anxiety with Functional Medicine, IBS, Obesity, Chronic Fatigue, Parasites, Candida, SIBO, Evan Brand and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p>Evanbrand.com</p> <p> </p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Gut Issues </strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/gut-issues/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/gut-issues/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>A lot of people suffer from gut issues. But most of them mistake the symptoms of gut issues for some other disease, so they end up not addressing the cause.  Evan Brand is a fellow podcaster who has gone down that road, so I’m excited that he’s sharing his insights on how to solve gut issues. </p> <h3>Growing Up Years</h3> <p>Evan Brand is a survivor of several health conditions. Growing up, he had to deal with things like parasite infections, SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), H pylori, candida overgrowth, adrenal fatigue and many other health conditions.</p> <p>He also battled with depression, anxiety, fatigue and IBS for so many years. Initially, he consulted with conventional doctors, but nobody gave him a long-term solution.  This led him to research and go the alternative medicine route.</p> <h3>Dangers of EMF</h3> <p>During Evan Brand’s research, he found that electromagnetic fields or EMF are a factor in causing leaky gut. He believes that if EMF can affect hormones, it can also affect the gut area.</p> <p>Evan Brand shares that in one of his past episodes, he had GE’s former senior scientist Dr. Richard Hansler on the show. Dr. Richard Hansler thoroughly explained that the modern light bulb is harmful because it negatively affects our melatonin production. Hence, we end up having a hard time to sleep.</p> <p>Because of that, Dr. Richard Hansler founded Lighting Lighting Innovations Institute. He also co-founded <a href= "https://lowbluelights.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Low Blue Lights</a>, which sells advanced lighting products. </p> <h3>Dangers Of 5G</h3> <p>Evan Brand also shares that another past guest, Dr. Jack Kruse was instrumental in influencing him to move out of the city to try to get away from cellphone towers. Dr. Jack Kruse is a known neurosurgeon in the industry.</p> <p>“They say 5G is a nightmare. Just because of the small cells. The 5G is the new generation of cell phone technology so that we can transmit and have a million people download YouTube videos all in a second from their smartphones,” Evan Brand explains. </p> <p>He adds, “There’s going to be these small cells the size of a watermelon. A giant router that transmits cellular data but they’re going to be on every three to four houses. So your risk of wireless pollution is going to go up so much.”</p> <h3>Optimized Life</h3> <p>Dr. Jack Kruse is also the CEO of Optimized Life. Optimized Life is a health and wellness company aiming to help people avoid the healthcare burdens we usually encounter as we grow older.  Dr. Jack Kruse currently in practices in the Gulf South.</p> <p>“We just saw the first study tested on rats last March 22, that proved cellphone tower radiation can cause cancer,” said Evan Brand. “<a href= "https://ehtrust.org/ramazzini-institute-study-animal-study-on-base-station-cell-tower-radiofrequency-radiation-question-answer/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Ramazzini Institute Study: Animal Study On Base Station/Cell Tower Radiofrequency Radiation.</a> Dr. Kruse told me this six years ago, and now it is finally coming out that it is true.”</p> <p>I also heard of so many studies coming out detailing the dangers of 5G. The findings state that 5G causes dangerous health conditions like migraines and brain tumors.</p> <p>“The rollout of these technologies is going to happen at a much slower rate if you are in a rural area. Because the population is low and there is less need for a million 5G towers out here,” Evan Brand explained. “EMF is the new smoking. You can’t see it or smoke it, but it’s there.”</p> <p>Evan Brand says plans are already in place to erect those towers in Austin, Texas, Seattle, Washington, Miami, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles either this year or next year. Unfortunately, we can’t stop those plans so Evan Brand advises the need to be aware of protecting our health in the best way we can.</p> <h3>Dealing With Candida</h3> <p>Candida is a pathogenic yeast that can cause gut issues and symptoms like joint pains, fatigue, and gas. Evan Brand was able to talk with Nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, whose interview about candida will be featured at the upcoming Candida Summit this July. </p> <p>“I had many different species of bacterial infection and dealt with candida overgrowth. My gut was a mess,” said Evan Brand. “I also had bad acne. It wasn’t a deficiency of pharmaceuticals. Plus, they are giving away antibiotics now like candy for acne. To think antibiotics cause DNA damage and other issues.”</p> <h3>Parasite Issues</h3> <p>Evan Brand recalls that when he was in college, he always needed to check where the nearest bathroom was. After several consultations with the doctor, he found out that he was dealing with a couple of parasites—giardia and cryptosporidium.</p> <p>Giardia is a parasite that is commonly known to cause diarrhea called giardiasis. It is regarded as a water-borne parasite. Cryptosporidium is also a water-borne parasite that causes cryptosporidiosis. It affects the small intestine and can affect the respiratory tract.</p> <p>“Even if you do get a referral to a gastroenterologist, they are using a type of testing that is 20 years old. You’re going to get a false negative; then doctors send you to a psychiatrist. But through functional testing, you can find it,” said Evan Brand.</p> <p>Evan Brand did functional testing, and it showed all the gut bugs. So with some help from his friends and colleagues, he created an herbal protocol. Six weeks later, Evan Brand was no longer rapidly losing weight, and his depression and anxiety disappeared.</p> <p>A lot of people either shrug off depression and anxiety, or they fail to recognize it. You’d be surprised how it is linked to a lot of other health conditions.  Like my past guest<a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/understanding-addiction/">Johann Hari explained, depression and anxiety</a> can be very destabilizing.</p> <h3>Link Between Diet And Gut</h3> <p>Evan Brand shares that he had his first panic attack when he had gut bugs. Initially, he thought he had a heart attack. Apparently, the bugs were releasing several endotoxins into the bloodstream, so Evan Brand had to work on his liver through a nutrient-dense diet.</p> <p>But Evan Brand was quick to clarify that just because you’ve fixed your diet, doesn’t mean the parasites will disappear. He advises that it is still best to get tested to get an accurate assessment of your health condition.</p> <p>“Gut issues are the biggest puzzle piece. Nutrition is a big piece, but I did all the diets. I pulled out gluten, dairy, grain. But you’re not going to eradicate gut bugs just by going on a gluten-free diet,” said Evan Brand.</p> <p>He adds, “Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt said, if you don’t address the gut issues or these infections, viruses, parasites or EMF, dieting alone can’t solve the problem.” </p> <h3>Aura Roots</h3> <p>Aura Roots uses organic herbs for their products. Evan Brand says that they have a modest line of herbal antibiotics and herbal anti-parasitic, but they can also do custom formulations. Evan Brand says one of the products that he uses a lot is called Microbiome Support 1, 2 and 3.</p> <p>I believe Evan Brand’s product line can give a lot of health benefits just like my past guest, <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/algae/">Catharine Arnston who is the founder of ENERGYbits</a>. I am satisfied with her chlorella product because just like Aura Roots, it is made organically grown and non-GMO.</p> <h3>SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)</h3> <p>Evan Brand cites a 2013 study where they found out the use of proton-pump inhibitors is a factor for bacterial and fungal overgrowth. It is also linked to gastrointestinal symptoms. Proton-pump inhibitors are drugs that supposedly reduce stomach acid production.</p> <p>“CDC is now admitting that we have a massive antibiotic resistant problem. We also have an anti-fungal resistant problem. That is why Diflucan doesn’t work,” said Evan Brand. “CDC has a special program called emerging infections program. They can’t keep up because bacteria and fungi are changing and modifying.”</p> <p>Evan Brand, therefore, advises people to increase their vitamin C dosage to be able to poop twice a day and make sure our lymphatic system is working fine. We have to shift our focus on adrenal, gallbladder and detox support.</p> <h3>Heavy Metals Toxicity</h3> <p>Evan Brand says he saw heavy metal symptoms when he was working on improving his gut health. Initially, he noticed things did get a little crazy like pent-up anxiety. But once the gut work was done, Evan Brand eventually found this new sense of calm.</p> <p>I have heard the benefits of taking carbon supplements, but just like me, Evan Brand also goes to the sauna regularly to sweat out the heavy metal toxins from the body. The duration in the sauna is different for everyone, but according to my past guest <a href="http://learntruehealth.com/sunlighten-saunas/">Connie Zack, the owner of Sunlighten Sauna</a>, it is best to listen to your body. As for Evan Brand, he usually stays in the sauna for 20 minutes at 125 degrees.</p> <p><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that we usually sweat out heavy metals </a>during the first five minutes in the sauna.  But if you are like Evan Brand who doesn’t sweat out quickly, you may try exercising first or taking an Epson salt bath or elevating your legs while lying down.</p> <p>You may also want to take an adrenal core test to figure out why it takes time for you to sweat. Evan Brand says he still has to figure out how he can sweat easily so basically, being in tip-top shape entails constant learning and research.</p> <p>“Don’t give up. We got a lot that we’re up against. I understand how people want to shut down. Wherever you are at in your journey, there is something you can do,” said Evan Brand. </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Evan Brand is an Author, Podcast Host and a Louisville, Kentucky-based Board-Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and Nutritional Therapist.

246 Futuristic Laser Treatment Successfully Cures Patients, Bacteria, Fungus, Virus, Parasites, Heavy Metals, Detox, Pesticides, Plastics, Chemicals, Autoimmune, Cancer, Fibromyalgia, Lyme, Dr. Doug Phillips, Ashley James, Learn True Health Podcast
<p><a href= "http://www.laserdetox.com/about">http://www.laserdetox.com/about</a></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Laser Detox </strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/laser-detox/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/laser-detox/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>One of the latest methods of healing is through laser detox. It can be regarded as a futuristic form of laser treatment that can cure people suffering from bacteria, fungus, virus, parasites, heavy metals, detox, pesticides, plastics, chemicals, autoimmune, cancer, fibromyalgia and Lyme disease. Dr. Doug Phillips has administered laser detox to a lot of patients, and I’m thrilled to have him on this episode to talk about it.</p> <h3>Former Profession</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips did not immediately start his career offering laser detox services to patients. In fact, he started out as a dentist. For almost four decades, Dr. Doug Phillips centered his focus on jaw dysfunction, facial pain and chronic illness which can lead to a lot of other health problems.</p> <p>With his office initially based in Palm Beach, he researched to learn more about the immune and autonomic nervous system, as well as the importance of detoxing our body from toxins and pathogens, often found in our jaw.</p> <p>“My step by step growth was inspired by the Lord. I kept learning and growing, and I am still learning now. We are never done,” said Dr. Doug Phillips.</p> <h3>American Academy of Craniofacial Pain</h3> <p>In the mid-80s, Dr. Doug Phillips was one of the 15 dentists who performed at the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain. Apparently, the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain is the most significant association of dentists and other experts whose focus is on craniofacial pain, temporomandibular disorders, and dental sleep medicine.</p> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips recalled one patient, wherein initially, no one knew the real cause of that person’s face pain. Dr. Doug Phillips put something on both sides of the mouth, and the pain subsided!</p> <p>“I found one spot and touched it with a drill. The pain was all gone. It made me see how important that was. From there, I learned more,” Dr. Doug Phillips said.</p> <p>The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain was established in 1985 by a group of experts who wanted to promote clinical skills as well as educate people in this field. The organization holds a summer conference in the United States as well as winter conferences.</p> <h3>Learn About Heavy Metals Toxicity</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips first heard about <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt</a> in 1992.  Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was offering workshops at that time, and Dr. Doug Phillips signed up for one that focused on Neurotherapy. Because he liked the experience, Dr. Doug Phillips took the advanced course three months later and learned a lot about heavy metals toxicity.</p> <p>I was very fortunate to have Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt on my show, and I highly recommend listening to that episode. To complement your heavy metals detox, it is also advisable to take supplements like Chlorella.</p> <p><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/algae/">I had ENERGYbits founder Catharine Arnston on a past episode</a> to talk about her products which primarily aids in the cleansing and healing of our cells. For those who want to try her products may refer to our episode and order through her website.  Don’t forget to apply the LTH promo code to avail of the 20% discount upon checkout. </p> <h3>Dangers of Mercury</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips says that out of all the heavy metals, it is mercury that we have to watch out for. He has been doing detoxes for mercury for over two decades and says maintenance is a lifelong commitment. Keeping our liver clean also significantly helps, although a laser detox is the best option.</p> <p>“Mercury is in every nucleus of a cancer cell. I advise people to do a detox and replace mercury fillings. Those who also had root canals should be careful,” said Dr. Doug Phillips.</p> <h3>Other Toxic Problems</h3> <p>Aside from the heavy metals, Dr. Doug Phillips says fungus and molds are also a major problem. He says it is thirty to forty times stronger than it used to be because of EMFs.</p> <p>“If you have fungus and molds, infection forms in the sinus which leads to chronic inflammation making it so you can’t get rid of anything else. Lyme is hard to treat if there is fungus present,” said Dr. Doug Phillips.</p> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips also suggests being alert for the possible presence of parasites. Some parasites are hard to detect in the body, and it takes through testing to be able to identify that parasites may be a cause of your health problem.</p> <h3>Living Organisms</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips also cites the work of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura who initially discovered how to use plant leaves to remove heavy metals from the body. One plant that can remove mercury from the body is the coriander plant or cilantro.</p> <p>Based in New York, Dr. Yoshiaki Omura found out that organisms that cause infections hide in body areas with a high concentration of heavy metals like lead, mercury, and aluminum. Organisms used the heavy metals to protect themselves from antibiotics.</p> <p>“I learned about the difference in the organisms, how they are now and how they used to be. The organisms used to have a cell wall. When they had a cell wall, our immune system could identify them by the information on the cell wall,” explains Dr. Doug Phillips.</p> <p>He adds, “Organism evolved, and the cell wall disappeared, so that made them very pliable. These organisms live inside the cell now. The autonomic nervous system which we were using as a guide, only goes into the extracellular space. It doesn’t go inside the cell. We were missing all the intracellular organisms.”</p> <h3>Direct Resonance Testing</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips learned direct resonance testing from Dr. Yoshiaki Omura. He learned how to test intracellular with direct resonance testing. That eventually opened a whole new world of treatment available for patients.</p> <p>“Dr. Klinghardt and I both expanded our knowledge. I had people coming to me with dental problems but the Board of Dentistry, when you have a board, usually people on the board are not very good in their profession. They are people who are satisfying their ego in the profession by being on the board,” shares Dr. Doug Phillips.</p> <h3>Autonomic Response Testing</h3> <p>Autonomic response testing, on the other hand, is a technique developed by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt with the help of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura, It is a technique that is advanced and accurate for muscle testing.</p> <p>The method is being used by more medical professionals to dive deeper into finding out the cause of a patient’s health condition. It is easy to administer and provides quick results, so it saves people time and money.</p> <h3>Legal Battle</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips encountered legal battles in the late 90s that eventually turned his life around. He recalls people on the Board of Dentistry were judging him so Dr. Doug Phillips had to stand up against them.</p> <p>“I knew what I was doing, and I had 22 top doctors testifying for me. It was a two-week trial. The board had two doctors testify for them, one from the Board of Medicine and Board of Dentistry. The judge ruled in my favor. I won in court,” Dr. Doug Phillips said.</p> <p>But apparently, the board had the power to overrule what the judge said. Because of that, the board revoked Dr. Doug Phillips’ license. Dr. Doug Phillips took up a higher level. But things were already shifting at that point because Dr. Doug Phillips was also a Naturopath by then.</p> <h3>Career Shift</h3> <p>By 2001, Dr. Doug Phillips was practicing as a Naturopath. Rather than go after getting back his dentist license, he decided to offer alternative treatments since he is licensed by The Commission of Religious Consulting and Healing.</p> <p>“I have patients from all over. People are frustrated. We’re reaching out. Because what they want is their quality of life back,” said Dr. Doug Phillips. “But their health isn’t enough to support them to be happy. So what we do is autonomic response testing to find out the cause of what’s going on and not just treat symptoms.” </p> <p>He adds, “I’m not licensed to do any medication but what I do is better. I do herbal nutraceuticals. We train the patient how it goes through every cell in the body for 5 to 6 hours after they take it. And we train them what stops that from working.”</p> <h3>Using Peptides</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips also used peptides. A peptide is a compound that contains two or more amino acids. The peptides are from the immune system of the great white shark and the Australian saltwater crocodile.</p> <p>Citing Lyme disease as an example, Dr. Doug Phillips says Lyme disease has very tricky organisms. But once Dr. Doug Phillips has found the herbal nutraceuticals that goes exactly with the organisms, there is usually a good result after a few days.</p> <p>Aside from testing for bacteria, fungus, parasites and algae, Dr. Doug Phillips also administers tests for herbicide, pesticide, fungicide, plastic, toxic solvents and metal. He says that those toxins are polluting the internal environment. Because of that, it makes the organism stronger, making our system more acidic. </p> <h3>Laser Detox</h3> <p>“We have ways to get rid of the toxin within a day and a half. No drugs. It’s a laser detox called laser energetic detox. The laser detox utilizes all the light bodies surrounding us by communicating with every cell over a hundred times a minute,” explains Dr. Doug Phillips.</p> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips further explains that laser detox uses that power to plant the detox in the cell. Apparently, the body goes through a process every twenty-four and a half hours as our vital life force travels through our whole system for the detox to take place. After that, the toxin disappears.</p> <h3>Laser Detox Procedure</h3> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips has treated people who have cancer, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and joints pain with laser detox. First of all, Dr. Doug Phillips conducts an initial assessment of the patient’s health history.</p> <p>The next step of the program is eliminating or reserving autoimmunity through treatment. Each treatment is customized for the patient and a day and a half after; patients can start their detox. Usually, in the third session, patients no longer have the autoimmune disease.</p> <p>“We have over 90 flowers in our test kit. Flowers resonate with the emotions. Once they find all the toxins, we find the flowers in the test kit that resonate with the emotional complex binding the toxin. And we pick that with a laser detox,” Dr. Doug Phillips explains.</p> <p>Dr. Doug Phillips further explains that they use invisible beams for specific areas of the body and the brain. Patients sit with shoes off, then Dr. Doug Phillips lasers flowers on the bottom of feet, palm hands and ears.</p> <p>“There’s an organ representation of the whole body on the bottom of the feet, the palms of the hand and ears,” said Dr. Doug Phillips. “The patient then stands up so we can shine the laser beam and laser the whole body. What we are lasering is the layers of light that surround the body. It is done within half an hour.” </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Dr. Doug Phillips had previously practiced General Dentistry for over thirty-eight years.  In the late 1970’s, his traditional, restorative practice began to shift to a more specialized focus–patients with a chronic headache, facial pain, and jaw dysfunction.  He became increasingly interested in why some of these patients healed with traditional treatments, while others did not.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>In search of answers, Dr. Doug Phillips began to study Biological Dentistry in the early 1990s.  This is an extension of dentistry which is concerned with the dental contributions to chronic illness.  He learned that the body’s immune and autonomic nervous system (the systems in charge of our survival) need to be cleansed of toxins and pathogens, many of which are lodged in the jaw before healing can occur.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>As a result of his studies, Dr. Doug Phillips incorporated Biological Dentistry into his practice.  He created Biological Evaluation for patients who were not responding predictably to traditional treatment.  Through this extensive interview and examination, information was gathered regarding the patient’s teeth, jaw, bite, body, psycho-emotional status, and lifestyle habits.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Next, using Autonomic Response Testing and Direct Resonance Testing, the organisms and toxins present in the jaw, as well as the corresponding dysfunctioning organs and glands of the body, were identified.  These were the pathogens that needed to be eliminated for healing to begin and health restored.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Dr. Doug Phillips targets the energetic aspect of everything from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and cancer to Lyme disease and multiple chemical sensitivity. Dr. Doug Phillips aims at the cause of the problem, not its symptoms. Dr. Doug Phillips is in no way practicing as a medical doctor.</em></p> <h3>Get Connected With Dr. Doug Phillips:</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.laserdetox.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/Dr-Douglas-J-Phillips-187569864594520/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <h3><strong>Recommended Links:</strong></h3> <p>Episode 218 – <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">Heavy Metals Detox</a></strong> – Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt</p> <p>Episode 234 – <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/algae/">Algae</a></strong> – Catharine Arnston</p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Support Us on Patreon & <strong>Join the Learn True Health Book Club</strong>!!!

245 The Power of Sweat, Flushing Toxins, Mold, Heavy Metals, Autoimmune, Circulation, Blood Pressure, Sleep Inflammation and Weight Loss with the Founder of Sunlighten Connie Zack and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><a href= "https://www.sunlighten.com">https://www.sunlighten.com</a></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Sunlighten Saunas</strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/sunlighten-saunas/"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/sunlighten-saunas/</strong></a></span></p> <p>Experts advocate sweating out toxins through saunas like Sunlighten Sauna. Numerous studies have proven the effectivity of using saunas regularly. To know more about the science behind the benefits of sweating out toxins and more, I am thrilled to have Sunlighten Saunas founder Connie Zack to explain more about it in this episode.</p> <h3>Personal Experience</h3> <p>As many of my regular listeners know, I have tried a lot of diets over the years. I’d lose considerable weight, but the toxicity I have to deal with along with losing weight has prevented me from keeping the weight off.</p> <p>I have also tried a lot of types of saunas since I very well know saunas are effective in sweating out toxins.  My Naturopath already recommended doing saunas four years ago.</p> <p>Sauna units have different types. The sauna company that my Naturopath recommended to me, unfortunately, didn’t suit my budget nor program requirements. Apparently, when one has a considerable amount of heavy metals toxicity in the body, it is those toxins that prevent one from efficiently keeping the weight off. That’s why when I first heard of the Sunlighten Saunas at the recent Heavy Metals Summit, I was overjoyed!</p> <p>Not only did Sunlighten Saunas satisfy my basic requirement of sweating out toxins, but it also had a lot of other benefits, and was easy on the budget.  Most of all, it was highly recommended by <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/diet-myths/">Dr. Mark Hyman</a> and <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt</a>, two experts that I have guested on my show.  </p> <h3>Heavy Metals Toxicity</h3> <p>Connie Zack has been using saunas for quite a while.  She had always had a passion for wellness and shares that Sunlighten Sauna was conceived when her brother experienced heavy metal toxicity.</p> <p>“My brother’s health situation was the reason why I’m doing what I’m doing today. My brother was so ill. He had brain fog, chronic fatigue, and vertigo,” said Connie Zack. “His dentist apparently recommended infrared technology. Plus, I read articles that there may be some benefits for it to remove some of the mercury.”</p> <p>Connie Zack also recalls that her brother’s condition was so bad that his skin was almost grayish. But fortunately, his normal skin color came back after consistently sweating out toxins through a sauna.</p> <p>It’s alarming how our present environment is getting to be very toxic, but yet we are not aware of it.  Some are even clueless about the level of danger that vaccines cause.  Most vaccines, especially a high dosage, contain heavy metals and mercury.  That is why it is not advisable to administer these kinds of vaccines to newborns.</p> <h3>Types Of Sunlighten Sauna</h3> <p>If you’ve decided to buy your sauna unit, you must first be clear on your requirements.  Saunas have different types of infrared technology, suited for different kinds of health conditions.</p> <p>Connie Zack proudly reveals that she has extensively worked with scientists and experts to come up with a fantastic line of Sunlighten Saunas. Her company offers the following types: 3-in-1 Sauna, Far Infrared Sauna, Community Sauna and Portable Sauna. The one I got is from the 3-in-1 Sauna Collection which I truly love!</p> <p>“For the mPulse 3-in-1 Sauna, you’re getting two additional wavelength and additional healing parts of the infrared spectrum. The Sunlighten Signature and Solo gives you the highest quantity of Far Infrared available in the market,” Connie Zack explains. “The mPulse 3-in-1 has the most amount of Far Infrared combined with a particular frequency. Each wavelength is delivered separately.”</p> <p>According to Connie Zack, the saunas with Mid and Near Infrared provide the best benefit for health, especially for those suffering from chronic pain.  The Solo Sauna on the other hand only has Far Infrared, but it is good for getting rid of toxic overload. </p> <h3>Types Of Infrared</h3> <p>As mentioned earlier, saunas have different types, primarily because of the different levels of infrared technology.  According to Connie Zack, there are three types of infrared saunas to choose from.</p> <p>Near Infrared has the shortest wavelength. Saunas with near-infrared technology targets skin renewal, wound healing and cell health. Mid Infrared has a longer wavelength. It paves the way for oxygen flow through the blood vessels and improves circulation. Connie Zack says athletes often use Mid Infrared saunas for joints, tissue and muscle recovery.</p> <p>Far Infrared, on the other hand, has the longest wavelength.  It penetrates deep into the body and targets sweating out toxins. Heart rate and metabolic rate significantly improves with this type of wavelength.</p> <p>“Muscle relaxation comes from each wavelength touching the body differently. The Far Infrared goes into your core, increasing your circulation at a deep level. Oxygen promotes cardiovascular flow to the body and helps relax the body. It also gives you more energy.”</p> <p>I love the type of sauna I got. The wavelength is perfect. It’s therapeutic and relaxes every muscle in my body.  Going to the sauna is my “me” time, but my husband and my son love it, too!</p> <p>“If we can mimic and deliver that same wavelength and combine it with other wavelengths, you’re not only going to get the benefits of the Near Infrared but also get the detox benefits, recovery and weight loss benefits of Mid Infrared,” said Connie Zack. </p> <h3>Choosing The Right Wellness Program</h3> <p>Saunas aren’t just about sweating out toxins. One other reason why I love Sunlighten Saunas is due to the wellness programs they offer.  They have different heating mechanisms that target detoxification, anti-aging, weight loss, relaxation, cardiovascular, or pain relief.  You can also request for a custom program according to your specific needs.</p> <p>I chose the detox program. At first, I started slow, and I’ve been going to the sauna for 20 days now. Currently, I’m on two programs. My detox program takes around 38 minutes, and my weight loss and the cardio program comes right after. </p> <p>“The release of toxins comes from the increase in temperature. Great way to get your circulatory system back in check. That’s one of the reasons why the body feels better, behaves better and removes the toxic elements,” explains Connie Zack. </p> <p>She adds, “Move the Mid Infrared to a shorter wavelength, so it doesn’t go deep into the body. That’s the beauty of the program. You don’t need all three at the maximum capacity for everything. Because you can adjust the wavelength depending on what you’re trying to achieve.”</p> <p>I played around and tried all the programs.  Ever since I go to the sauna regularly, I’ve had a restful sleep.  It makes me feel relaxed and brings down the stress. Plus, I already lost over nine pounds!</p> <p>I feel healthy as ever lately. My diet is mainly plant-based and absolutely no sugar.  I also take chlorella for supplements. Aside from doing saunas daily, I go on hikes around my area.  It is indeed paying off since my jeans are pretty much looser now.</p> <h3>Quality Saunas For Better Health</h3> <p>Connie Zack says that ideally, we all need self-care. But unfortunately, it is so under-realized. She also says that just because it is an infrared sauna, doesn’t mean it’s going to transform your cells and change your body. Ultimately, you need to make sure you have a product like the Sunlighten technology to give you high enough quantity of infrared so that it can be game-changing.</p> <p>Sunlighten Saunas’ company philosophy in creating their products is that the Sunlighten experience is meant to be healing and enjoyable. It is not something that you have to suffer through. When you come out of their saunas, you’ll feel empowered and lighter.</p> <p>“Hot air keeps the heat inside the space. You want to get these healing energies into the body so that they can make a change. What we have been able to do, is take out all that excess heat,” said Connie Zack. </p> <p>She adds,”And what’s coming out through the body is a wonderful healing energy without the air getting hot. When it gets in, it increases the blood flow and decreases the size of blood vessels. Bottomline, you’re decreasing the workload of the heart.”</p> <h3>Kids Can Use Saunas</h3> <p>In my past episode with <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/my-kid-cures-cancer/">My Kid Cures Cancer couple Ryan and Teddy Sternagel</a>, they confirmed that regular sauna sessions significantly helped in the recovery of their son Ryder who had cancer. </p> <p>Ideally, for a child to use a sauna, the recommended duration is one minute for each year of the child’s age.  Ryan and Teddy Sternagel are happy owners of a Sunlighten Solo Sauna, as well as Dr. Mark Hyman who has the same type of sauna.</p> <p>Kids using saunas is not unusual.  It emulates being in a mother’s womb. Kids like it because it has a natural feel.</p> <p>According to Connie Zack, many kids use the sauna, especially kids with attention deficit disorders. It helps calm them down. The sauna duration varies with every child.</p> <p>“Every child is different, and it depends on the condition. But generally, the rule is a minute per age. I have an 8 and 10-year-old. They have tried it all. I learned kids know when to get out because their connection with their body is strong and alive,” assures Connie Zack. </p> <h3>Sauna Program Consultation</h3> <p>Connie Zack shares that they also work with rehab centers treating people with drug and alcohol addiction.  With so many wellness programs and a wide range of saunas to choose from, Connie Zack suggests that it is best to get in touch and schedule a consultation.  Her direct email is <em><strong>czack@sunlighten.com</strong></em>.<em> </em></p> <p><em>Connie Zack, co-owner and Chief Sales Officer of Sunlighten, started the business in a basement in 1999. Her husband and co-founder Aaron Zack is the company’s CEO. Together, the Zacks have led Sunlighten to tremendous growth since those basement days.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Before starting Sunlighten, Connie Zack held positions at Procter & Gamble ranging from Alternative Marketing Manager, District Pharmaceutical Sales Manager and Gastrointestinal National Manager.

244 How to Meal Prep, Part Two, Healing Disease and Gaining Health Through Nutrition with Alex Torres and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p>You can follow Alex on Instagram @MealPrepMondays</p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Meal Prep Mondays  </strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/meal-prep-mondays/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/meal-prep-mondays/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">We’re back for part two of our Meal Prep Mondays! There’s so much to learn about how to meal prep.  My guest, Alex Torres and I are so excited to continue talking about how to incorporate the habit of meal prep into your daily routine so read on to find out. </p> <h3>When To Meal Prep </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">First of all, Alex Torres segregates the types of people who plan to meal prep.  This is because we all have different priorities and lifestyles.  He breaks it down as follows: </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Single people</strong></p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– they have a lot of time on their hands</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– it doesn’t matter what day, but do what day is best for you</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– mornings are better but evenings are fine as well</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– if you are exhausted, meal prep one meal for one to two days to get started </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Couples</strong></p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– if you both know each other well, make it fun by cooking for each other</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– weekends are best, Saturdays in particular or Mondays and Tuesdays </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Parents with Kids</strong></p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– take turns in cooking</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– meal prep is usually on Saturdays</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– cook in bulk</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– ask family members what they like</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">– prepare meals for one or two days to avoid soggy vegetables  </p> <h3>Using Glass Containers </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Have you heard that using plastic containers to store or heat food in the microwave is harmful to your health? It is! Which reminds me of a story I heard about singer Paul McCartney’s wife, Linda. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">I interviewed a Naturopath who happened to be one of the doctors of Linda McCartney who was vegan. She would bring her containers everywhere and use it to heat food in the microwave. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Years later, Linda McCartney developed breast cancer. And the cause was traced to her frequent use of Tupperware to heat food in the microwave. When she was tested for cancer tissues, doctors discovered that it was full of toxic substances that are also found in Tupperware. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">When we store and heat food in plastic, that is cancer-causing. That’s why Alex Torres suggests the use of compost containers. It can be used one more time if you first store food with no liquids. He also recommends using a food grade liner to prevent leaks. </p> <center style="font-weight: 400;"></center> <h3>Invest In Cookware </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Microwave destroys nutrients, so it is a good idea to invest in good pans and a big pot. Find kitchenware or cookware that make you excited to meal prep. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">“My favorite is investing in knives and a good cutting board. Because the worse is trying to cut a tomato. Also, invest in cast iron pots and pans. Season cast iron pans by washing and putting olive oil. Leave the pan out. You’ll use it more when you see it lying around,” said Alex Torres. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">My personal favorite is using a bamboo spoon. There’s something about stirring the food with something organic. It feels so much better. Another fun gadget for me is the Veggie Bullet. It turns everything into spiral shapes. Sweet potato and carrot noodles, in particular, are delicious! </p> <h3>Meal Prep For Parents </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">For some reason, food tastes better on the third day since it was cooked, especially marinade dishes. It’s probably because all the flavor seeps in well by that time. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Alex Torres says this is also true for soups and stews. But he also advises to watch out for squash and zucchini.  These vegetables hold a lot of water and over time, they turn into mush. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Certain Mexican, Italian and Indian dishes pick up flavor within a day or two. But even if the dishes are tasty, it is still not a guarantee that kids will eat it. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">“It is not easy to get kids to eat. So, a good way to make them eat is to let them help cook what they want. Getting them involved,” Alex Torres said. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">He shares that his 9-year-old daughter made a sandwich filled with vegetables. It was filled with ginger, Asian-inspired seasoning, and dressings. If Alex Torres made that and gave it to his daughter, there’s no way she was going to eat it. But because his daughter did by herself, she was more receptive. </p> <h3>Learning To Cook </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Most of us have a hectic life, so people rarely cook anymore.  It often leads to bad food choices when eating out.  That is why Alex Torres believes that people need to be re-educated that meal prep or cooking at home is not hard at all. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">“Adults need to go back to cooking class. I think in the future, we’ll see a lot more cooking classes. It will become popular in the next couple of years,” said Alex Torres. “Honestly, America needs to learn how to cook at home again. Start cooking good home-cooked meals.”  </p> <center style="font-weight: 400;"></center> <h3>Right Mindset </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">I know it seems pretty hard to transition. But it shouldn’t stop you from trying it first. To everyone who is thinking of switching to a plant-based diet, try it out for a month and see how it feels. I lost 25 pounds of water weight in my first month of practicing a plant-based diet. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">A lot of people also find it hard to stick to a plant-based diet especially when they go to gatherings where they are made to eat all kinds of food. Guess what? There’s a solution to that. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">A Health Coach told me to stop telling people you are gluten-free or vegan. Do not put a label on yourself. Say, “No thanks. It doesn’t make me feel good.” The tactic works! </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">My mom was obsessed with dieting. That’s what led me to yo-yo dieting during my whole adult life until I found a healthy relationship with food. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">You see, my mom was a runway model during her younger years. She was obsessed with maintaining her figure. But during my puberty phase, I gained weight even if I was athletic and eating healthy. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">My mom interpreted my weight gain the wrong way and immediately put me on diets. She made me very conscious of weight and food. As a result, I was not getting the nutrition I needed, and I rebelled. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Looking back, the lesson learned was that we must all empower our kids on making food choices. Many people eat what they eat because that was how they were raised to eat. So, look at your belief system, whether or not your choice comes from what you want rather than adopted from everyone else. </p> <h3>Back To Nature </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">I highly recommend that everyone watch the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSUxcsJDgJM" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Back To Eden video documentary.</a> It narrates the story of Paul Gautschi who lives in Washington but grew up in Los Angeles. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Paul Gautschi has been gardening since he was a kid. The garden that he currently maintains has plants growing on its own with no chemicals nor tilling soil. The video also contains a lot of helpful gardening tips like how many wood chips to use. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">I got so inspired by the video, so I’m planning to build my garden soon. Ultimately, it’s all about coming back to nature.  Gardening can be therapeutic as well as an anti-depressant.  I also happen to know of a story wherein a kid was able to get out of the spectrum through gardening. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">“It’s up to you and me to show our kids. I want to go to sleep knowing I made a difference and that we are moving forward in the life we want to live,” said Alex Torres. “I think it’s vital tapping back the way it was back then, like the gardens and all that.”  </p> <center style="font-weight: 400;"></center> <h3><strong>The Plant-Based Hut</strong> </h3> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Looking ahead, said Alex Torres is slated to launch his new business venture called The Plant-Based Hut.  Because going on a plant-based diet has changed his life so much, Alex Torres now want to spread the word about the benefits of a plant-based diet. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">The Plant-Based Hut will offer plant-based meal preps.  They will primarily be doing food deliveries to clients within the central Florida area. Eventually, Alex Torres hopes that the business will expand to selling their produce at the farmers’ market. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">“There’s something about eating healing foods that are very filling. That is the difference I want to make,” said Alex Torres. </p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><em>Alex Torres is the man behind @Mealprepmondays on Instagram. He is a full-time influencer, blogger, and dad to four kids. Alex Torres is married to his wife Diana for over 15 years, and who just so happens to blog as well.</em><em> </em></p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><em>Alex Torres has been living in Orlando, Florida for the past ten years.

243 Using Meal Prep to Heal Disease and Achieve Your Health Goals, Crohns Disease, Plant-Based Food Prep, Meal Prep Mondays, with Instagram Sensation Alex Torres and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p>You can follow Alex on Instagram @MealPrepMondays</p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Meal Prep Mondays</strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/meal-prep/">http://learntruehealth.com/meal-prep/</a></strong></span></p> <p>Meal prep saves time and money. It also helps us to stay on a health program. I have a fantastic guest today who will talk about how to meal prep our way to health.  Alex Torres had struggled with weight issues, but because he learned how to meal prep, he affirms that it genuinely helped speed up his weight loss.</p> <h3>Weight Loss Journey</h3> <p>Alex Torres started having kids in 2012. And like most parents who started a family, Alex steadily gained weight. He recalls that it was easy to put on weight and hard to get it off.</p> <p>Frustrated with his fluctuating weight, he started to search for fitness inspirations on the internet.  Eventually, he found a way to lose weight on Instagram.</p> <h3>Crohn’s Disease</h3> <p>Alex Torres remembers the time when he weighed around 215 lbs. And yet he was only 5’7.  His height was not in proportion to his weight. Then in late 2015 or early 2016, Alex Torres was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.</p> <p>Chron’s disease is a digestive tract disorder and is known to cause severe diarrhea, fatigue, abdominal pain and weight loss. Alex Torres recalls that he collapsed to the floor while eating a burger and experienced severe stomach pain.</p> <p>Alex Torres lost a lot of weight because of Crohn’s disease. He rapidly lost weight and went down to 145 lbs. His appendix was also affected.</p> <p>“My symptoms were having very erratic sleep patterns and fatigue. How I was eating marked the tipping point. Factors include 70% from eating, 20% due to stress and the rest from lack of exercise,” said Alex Torres. </p> <h3>Winning Meal Plan</h3> <p>During his research, Alex Torres entered a meal plan and fitness program contest giveaway in 2012. He saw the meal plan, and it initially looked doable. Alex Torres dug deeper by also looking into the progress of bodybuilders who tried the meal plan.</p> <p>Looking further into the menu of the meal plan, Alex Torres saw an opportunity to simplify the recipes. He then experimented on the recipes by cooking it in bulk to see if it worked for a month.</p> <p>Tweaking the meal plan turned out to be successful. Alex Torres was so overjoyed that he made sure to thank the organizer of the contest giveaway.</p> <h3>Meal Prep Mondays</h3> <p>Alex Torres’ Meal Prep Mondays on Instagram was created after he saw an initial change in his body due to his new plant-based diet. The account shot up to fame so fast that Alex Torres recalls having around 1,800 followers overnight.</p> <p>But then it wasn’t all smooth sailing all the way.  Alex Torres struggled to lose weight, only to gain it back. His weight fluctuation went on until he had more kids. Because he was frustrated that he was not losing weight despite working out, Alex Torres decided to go back and be more focused on meal prep.</p> <h3>Helpful Reminders</h3> <p>Alex Torres says too much of everything is not good. With a plant-based diet, our body apparently knows how to work with it better. Our body also breaks down nutrients better and maximizes it for energy versus just sugar or simple carbs.</p> <p>“I could stuff myself, but I don’t really gain weight because it is not processed food. The body knows how to use it differently,” Alex Torres said. “Watch your surroundings also because family and friends play a big factor for you to be able to stick to a diet.”<strong> </strong></p> <p>He adds, “Do not focus on the process. Focus on the outcome or goal. Because if you focus on the process, you are never going to do it. Sometimes, people mock you because they want to do what you are doing. It’s all about perspective and being open-minded.”</p> <h3>Right Motivation</h3> <p>Many people are scared to try new things. And that’s natural.  But ultimately, it should stop us from getting out of our comfort zone.</p> <p><strong>“</strong>So funny that it’s almost like they’re scared. It’s because they’ve been living with it for so long that they thought it was part of them,” explains Alex Torres. “That’s what we humans do. We live with something for so long that we think it’s normal.”</p> <p>But fear of the unknown did not faze Alex Torres.  In fact, that’s what motivated him to succeed and eventually help people.</p> <p>“The first few months were rough. My wife suggested for me to stop eating meat. I first went gluten-free. It took about a month before seeing real change,” shares Alex Torres.<strong> </strong></p> <p>He adds, “By the fourth month, my skin started clearing up, my nails were stronger, rashes on my feet started to go away, and my hair grew quicker. I also noticed fewer mood swings in my kids and fewer trips to the dentist or doctor.”</p> <p>According to Alex Torres, it hasn’t been a year since switching to a plant-based diet, but the benefits have been so incredible, that even his mother is now practicing a plant-based diet.</p> <p>I can relate to Alex Torres. Dr. Joel Fuhrman was recently on my show where he revealed <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/eating-right/">a very scientific-based diet that heals many diseases and prevents diseases</a>. Even the late dentist, Dr. Weston A. Price presented many case studies proving that there is indeed a link between diet and oral health.</p> <h3>Recommended Meal Prep</h3> <p>Meal prep is easy once you get the hang of it.  I for one, like to bake sweet potatoes for two hours in a 325-degree oven.  Make sure to have it cool down before taking the skin off the potatoes. Because according to experts, baked root vegetable skins cause cancer.</p> <p>“I also recommend stuffing sweet potatoes by adding anything in the center. Baking is your best friend for meal prep because it does a lot of work for you. Another thing is crockpot for soups, stews, and broths,” suggests Alex Torres.</p> <h3>Storing Food</h3> <p>Alex Torres says meal prep is actually and re-introduction to cooking. Now it’s just about the method with meal prep because everybody has their way of eating.</p> <p>“I teach people the quickest and easiest way to meal prep. Save your leftovers. Some of our meal prep comes from leftovers,” said Alex Torres. </p> <p>He adds, “Maximum for meal prep is three days. Meal prep doesn’t have to be for life. It is a starting point to familiarize yourself with cooking food, preparing it for yourself and leaving it ready, so you don’t have to grab some fast food.” </p> <h3>Animals Can Be Vegan</h3> <p>I had a guest on my show, <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/meatless/">Kristie Middleton who talked about going meatless</a>.  Most of my guests who are vegan have pets, and I was surprised when Kristie Middleton’s dog is likewise on a plant-based diet.</p> <p>Alex Torres can relate because his dog is also vegan.  And according to him, his dog had a lot of positive health changes. Incidentally, there’s a Pet Cancer documentary set to launch on April 4, so I’m inviting everyone to sign up and learn more about how to care for our pets better.</p> <h3>Looking Ahead</h3> <p>Alex Torres likes to think long-term. And because he wants to be with friends and family longer, he leads by example.</p> <p>One way of leading by example is growing his food. He says our body is like a seedling, so we have to feed our body with the right stuff.<strong> </strong></p> <p>“Fruits and veggies are your best friend. Anything new is weird. Give it a try. The best way to do it is making sure it’s on the counter for you to see,” said Alex Torres. “The first meal is the first impression of meal prep. Cook what you want to eat. Do not cook something just because you saw it on Instagram or Pinterest.”</p> <p>Want more of Alex Torres?

242 The Scientific Way To Heal The Body With Food, Eat To Live, Super Immunity, Fast Food Genocide, Reverse and Prevent Cancer, Diabetes, Obesity, Dr. Joel Fuhrman and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><strong>My Favorite Books By Dr. Joel Fuhrman:</strong><br /> Fast Food Genocide: https://amzn.to/2GvS9Yf<br /> Eat to Live: https://amzn.to/2IaTwIX<br /> Eat to Live Quick and Easy Cookbook: https://amzn.to/2DXGImY<br /> The End of Diabetes: https://amzn.to/2IZZvSb<br /> The End of Dieting: https://amzn.to/2Ga80MK<br /> Super Immunity: https://amzn.to/2pM3ucq</p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Eating Right </strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/eating-right/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/eating-right</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Eating right has always been what health experts recommend for optimal health. But I know many of us are guilty of taking eating right for granted. I am thrilled that Dr. Joel Fuhrman is with us today to thoroughly explain the benefits of eating right.</p> <h3>Childhood Influence</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman was into competitive figure skating in the early 70s. He shares that his dad was overweight and sickly, so the elder Fuhrman bought a lot of books about eating right.</p> <p>Because so many books about eating right were within reach, Dr. Joel Fuhrman embraced the importance of excellent nutrition during his teenage years up to his early 20s.</p> <p>When Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s athletic career ended and went on to medical school, he decided to become a physician specializing in nutritional medicine. It was not a surprising choice since eating right made Dr. Joel Fuhrman maximize his athletic performance.</p> <h3>Harsh Reality</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman says he already knew from way back that most people were often sick. Common health problems were high blood pressure, headaches, diabetes, autoimmune conditions and many other mental illnesses due to nutritional ignorance.</p> <p>The rising number of sickly people is also traced to the standard American diet. Processed food has been the cause of health problems since the 70s.</p> <p>“Now it’s up to over 65% of calories from processed foods. One in five Americans are mentally ill in response to junk food diet,” shares Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “Never did I imagine a career as rewarding and fulfilled, and with this much impact in this country.” </p> <h3>Fulfilling Career</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman says that choosing this career path has been very rewarding. People in his line of work has a positive effect on millions of Americans. That is why he is excited over the potential of nutrition.</p> <p>“I knew I was going to medical school and learning that doctors are mostly drug prescribers, doing surgeries and emergency care,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said. “I was self-educated, and I made it my career to review, as well as study the science and literature in a comprehensive fashion about nutrition. So I know all the studies that have been done.”</p> <h3>Benefits Of Mushrooms</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman has always been fascinated to learn about all the phytochemical factors and biological features of mushrooms among other things. Apparently, mushrooms have anti-angiogenesis effects, and they don’t allow tumors to spread.</p> <p>“Angiogenesis means the growth of new blood vessels. Insulin is a hormone that angiogenesis is promoting,” explains Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “Mushrooms, onions and green vegetables have anti-angiogenesis effects that oppose the effect of insulin, prevent fat from being stored and prevents tumors from growing in the body as well.”</p> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman even mentions one study on mushrooms. The study found that women who ate 10 grams of mushrooms regularly for over a decade, has 64% reduced incidents of breast cancer.</p> <h3>Current Statistics</h3> <p>Raw onions and scallions were likewise found to have 55 to 88% reduction rate in most major cancers for people who eat them regularly. Because of this, Dr. Joel Fuhrman sees the importance of putting a diet portfolio together.</p> <p>“Include all these foods that individually have shown to be the most protective. Put them together in a diet that removes cancer-causing elements,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said. “In reality, we can win the war on cancer. We can wipe out 95% of cancers and save millions of lives.”</p> <h3>New Technology</h3> <p>One good thing about the current generation is the fact that medical technology has been rapidly improving every year. More high tech equipment has been made available to detect many health problems in its early stages.</p> <p>“We now have new technology enabling to diagnose breast cancer, perhaps 10 to 15 years before mammograms can. In the next five years, medical care in the U.S. can be revolutionized as we can diagnose cancer much earlier. The earlier the detection, the more hope for nutritional intervention,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman.</p> <h3>Success Stories</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman has countless stories of success treating patients who signed up for his programs on how to eat right. Most of them did not need surgery, got off medication and their heart disease melted away. Many of his patients are thriving in health in their 90s.</p> <p>“Don’t underestimate the therapeutic potential of nutritional excellence compared to the relative ineffectiveness of drugs. If only people knew how dangerous most of these drugs were,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “The real healthcare is self-care. What we do in our own lives is what keeps us healthy, not what doctors can do for us.”</p> <h3>Changing Ways</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman is passionate about teaching peers and patients on how to eat well to live well. He has advised doctors to spend more time with people whom they usually prescribe medication.</p> <p>“They don’t have time to educate people. People need a lot of knowledge to protect themselves against problems like cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and dementia to be able to live a hundred years old,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said.</p> <p>But Dr. Joel Fuhrman clarifies that he is not claiming that most cancers reverse themselves. The early stage he says is more predictably reversible. Apart from physical health, Dr. Joel Fuhrman says our emotional health is also essential.</p> <h3>Busting Myths</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman says that most things people believe about nutrition are wrong. That’s why he advises people to look for studies with a lot of credence.</p> <p>“Micronutrient insufficiencies lead to an unrelenting desire to overeat calories and food addictions. Regardless of the mechanisms involved, we have to achieve an excellent level of micronutrients,” explains Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “We have to be exposed to the full spectrum of micronutrients that the human needs for proper health and survival.”</p> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman also reveals that most Americans look for fads and gimmicks to speed up metabolic rate and prevent getting fat. He adds that the real science leading to slow the aging process and enhancing longevity is eating slightly less food so we can slow down metabolic rate.</p> <h3>Diet And Longevity</h3> <p>In connection with the topic of health, diet, and longevity, Dr. Joel Fuhrman cites the book, <strong><a href= "https://amzn.to/2Ig8AVT" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Good Life</a></strong> by Helen and Scott Nearing. Scott Nearing was an M.I.T. scholar and economist.</p> <p>The Nearing couple lived in Maine. Living in one of the coldest areas in the United States, the couple ate healthily and grew their food to survive. Scott Nearing lived to be 101 years old, and Helen Nearing lived until she was in her late 90s. Their long life is attributed to eating right.</p> <p>“It’s not just about living longer but rather having a healthy life expectancy as we live longer. The problem with most Americans is that ten years before these people pass away, they suffer from a poor quality of life. They don’t enjoy their later years,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said.</p> <p>He adds, “Most of these chronic illnesses that plaque Americans are not predominantly genetic. They are mostly from food and ignorance.”</p> <h3>Benefits Of Vegetables</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman explains that our body has the ability through its anti-oxidant response element to repair and fix defects. Raw green vegetables can make cells clean and healthy like cabbage, arugula, broccoli, and watercress.</p> <p>But did you know it’s not vegetables alone that do the job? Apparently, it’s the chemical reaction that happens when we chew vegetables that benefit us.</p> <p>“Once vegetables mix with our saliva, it forms nitrous oxide and other beneficial compounds when the mouth bacteria activate it,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “As you crush those cell walls, the chemical reaction activating in your mouth forms cancer-protective compounds. So, chew salads exceptionally well.” </p> <h3>Other Recommended Foods</h3> <p>Aside from onions and scallions, beans are highly recommended for a healthy diet. According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, beans extend our lifespan. Studies have shown that all the people who lived long ate beans.</p> <p>“Beans also reduce the risk of breast cancer. The lectin in beans have anti-cancer effects, strengthens bone mass and immune system,” Dr. Joel Fuhrman said.</p> <p>Animal products, on the other hand, shortens lifespan, increases cardiovascular death and cancer. Dr. Joel Fuhrman says studies have proven that there is a link between dairy and breast cancer.</p> <h3>Fast Food Genocide Book</h3> <p>Dr. Joel Fuhrman likewise believes that health and nutrition should have a more in-depth curriculum in schools to teach kids the importance of eating right. The health problems caused by eating fast food is most certainly a valid concern.</p> <p>“There is no better link between criminal behavior and drug abuse than candy consumption and junk food in childhood,” said Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “I want people to be a ray of light, be informed and educated so they can articulate the problem. We have to arm our population with the right knowledge and increase our life years.”</p> <p>He adds, “As Americans, we all stand for equal opportunity and the ability to have a great life. And by getting people to eat healthier, we can have so much more potential and leave this tragedy happening around us.” </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Joel Fuhrman M.D. is a board-certified family physician, 6 X NY Times best-selling author, and nutritional researcher, who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional methods.</em></p> <p><em>Dr. Joel Fuhrman presently serves as the President of the Nutritional Research Foundation.

241 Creating Your Healthy Self One Carrot At A Time with Former Competitive Gymnast, Holistic Nutrition, Fitness, and Lifestyle Coach Allison Pelot and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><a href= "http://www.pureenergypdx.com">www.pureenergypdx.com</a></span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Pure Energy Wellness</strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/pure-energy/"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;">http://learntruehealth.com/pure-energy</span></strong></a></span></p> <p>Pure energy is something most of us strive to have.  To be able to do the things we need to do every day, having pure energy makes us more productive.  But the problem is, most of us are clueless on how to have pure energy. That’s why we’re so lucky to have Holistic Health Coach Allison Pelot to show us how to reach optimal health.</p> <h3>Life As A Gymnast</h3> <p>Allison Pelot was a former gymnast who had a lucrative career as an athlete for 20 years. She was very conscious on her physical training but put little emphasis on proper nutrition. It was only when she became a mother when she learned how food could give pure energy.</p> <p>“I’m 45 years old now and had kids during my late 20s. Surprisingly, I can’t believe no one teaches athletes how to eat well,” shares Allison Pelot. “My son had issues with immunity, and I had severe digestive issues. Looking back, I was pretty malnourished.” </p> <p>Allison Pelot also recalls that doctors couldn’t do much. In fact, they made things worse. After doing some research, she decided to go on a gluten-free diet with her son.  Incorporating organic food into their diet, Allison Pelot started noticing changes.</p> <h3>Mission To Help Others</h3> <p>According to Allison Pelot, pure energy sparks transformation. Because she found the best way on how to have pure energy, that drove Allison Pelot’s desire to help other people.</p> <p>“I became so passionate and started teaching people. Then I got into personal training again after having kids,” Allison Pelot said. “As I got older, I noticed changes. People particularly women are not aware of how the body changes over time and how we need good nutrition to keep all that in balance.” </p> <h3>Stand On Vaccines</h3> <p><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/safe-vaccines/">In episode 224 of Learn True Health, I interviewed Dr. Paul Thomas</a> who was an advocate of eating real food and taking vitamins.  He has been in practice for 30 years and has approximately treated 13,000 kids.</p> <p>Allison Pelot had a harrowing experience with vaccines when her son was younger. According to Allison Pelot, her son was always in a bad mood, crying all the time, and had digestive issues.</p> <p>Allison Pelot’s son was 18 months old when he was given the controversial MMR vaccine. As soon as they got home, her son threw up, developed diarrhea and fever all at once.</p> <p>By the third day, Allison Pelot’s son seemed to get better. However, while Allison Pelot was out, her babysitter called to tell her that her son wasn’t breathing. Emergency medics came and apparently, Allison Pelot’s son had a seizure.</p> <p>Allison Pelot’s son had two more seizures when they got to the hospital. Doctors did several tests and initially speculated that the child had epilepsy. Long story short, Allison Pelot felt that the whole thing was a massive cover-up.</p> <p>“That opened my eyes. If people feel like they want to do a vaccine for their child, that is their decision. I’m just sharing my story, and we decided not to do vaccine anymore. The risk was too much,” said Allison Pelot. </p> <p>She adds, “Fast forward when he was ten years old; he started having seizures at night. It went on for two to three years. And then it finally stopped.”</p> <p>Allison Pelot breastfed her son part-time, then gave him formula and some supplements. But when he started to eat real food, like fruits and vegetables, things got better.</p> <h3>Going Gluten-Free</h3> <p>Allison Pelot also recommends going gluten-free. According to her, estrogen is a stress hormone which apparently makes our gut more sensitive to gluten. So if you have higher levels of serotonin and estrogen, it is going to make you more sensitive to gluten.</p> <p>“But the most important part of immunity is keeping your blood sugar regular. If you let your energy reserves get too low, you’ll have nothing left for your innate immune system to work,” Allison Pelot said.</p> <p>Allison Pelot also says to make an effort to eliminate endotoxins in the gut. It will be helpful in increasing your natural immunity as well as aid in your metabolism.</p> <p>“Endotoxins is anything that’s going to cause harm to the body, like estrogen if it continues to recirculate or any harmful bacteria,” Allison Pelot said. “Anything that is going to help your metabolism is going to help your immunity. They go hand in hand.”</p> <h3>Getting Into Yoga</h3> <p>We have heard many benefits of yoga and Allison Pelot is one of them. She says yoga helps one maintain flexibility, especially when we get older. Yoga primarily teaches you how you move on the floor. It also calms the nervous system.</p> <p>“Not everyone can go to the gym. So work movement into your day. Take a walk. It starts from there, and it can be so beneficial for every aspect,” said Allison Pelot. </p> <h3>Recommended Superfoods</h3> <p>Allison Pelot says eating superfoods is excellent for hormonal balance and getting the immunity up. For women, in particular, you’ll have less estrogen which is essential. Superfoods also helps women produce more progesterone in the body.</p> <p>“You’ll have more strength and will feel better in general. Women tend to have more fat as they age,” explains Allison Pelot. “The best food is milk or dairy. Start with cheese. It is a great source of protein especially for those who can’t digest meat.”</p> <p>Allison Pelot also says we need lots of calcium in our body. And dairy helps build muscle and aids in recovery.</p> <p>I was honestly surprised that Allison Pelot recommended dairy. My whole family is dairy-free, but we can handle ghee or small amounts of goat’s milk. It’s a big difference from cow to human dairy or breastmilk.</p> <p>I remember my interview with Joshua Rosenthal, the creator of Institute for Integrative Nutrition. He’s a vegan, but added dairy to his diet and felt terrific. So ultimately, it depends on what body type you are.</p> <p>No one diet is good for everyone. To figure what works for you, try a gluten-free diet for a month and see how it feels.</p> <p>“First check if you are lactose-intolerant or you have high cortisol levels. A lot of times, people are sensitive to what they add to milk. There are plenty of options on what kind of milk you can have,” said Allison Pelot.</p> <h3>Fruits And Vegetables</h3> <p>Allison Pelot recommends eating tropical fruits because it has a bit of saturated fat. It is also high in potassium and as well as other minerals. Apparently, the sugar from tropical fruits comes with a lot of nutrients. </p> <p>“Pineapple, papaya, oranges, melons, kiwi are great. Not so much for mangoes because it is part of the poison oaks family. Berries are fine, but it does not produce enough energy and nutrients,” explains Allison Pelot. “Cook apples and pears to be able to digest it easier. </p> <p>She adds, “Bone broth, gelatin, shellfish are also good healing foods for the gut. Also consume liver once a week to get a good amount of  vitamin A.”</p> <p>In selecting what food to eat, Allison Pelot says it is best to have a plan of recovery. Carrots, in particular, aids digestion. It also helps help take out the excess estrogen.</p> <p>Apparently, carrots have anti-fungal properties. So, if you eat it raw, it can suck out the endotoxins in the gut like a natural antibiotic. Carrots do not cost much, and it is easy to digest aside from being an excellent digestive aid.</p> <p>Allison Pelot however, cautions against juicing carrots. The dosage of keratin is high, and there is no more fiber once carrots are made into juice. Fiber is super important in the mix because we need fiber to pull out endotoxins.</p> <h3>Think Positive</h3> <p>Allison Pelot also stresses the importance of getting into a positive mindset. It can make all the difference in the world. She advises that we should likewise trust our body’s healing abilities. Building our body is the first step to optimal health. </p> <p>“Focus on things you care a lot about or things that give you joy. Part of the reason why Hawaii is so healing for people is because of the sun. Dark days are stressful on the body. So nourish yourself during stressful times,” Allison Pelot said. </p> <h3>Integrate Yourself Podcast</h3> <p>Allison Pelot has a fantastic podcast where she invites experts to speak about health and wellness. It has been quite a journey for Allison Pelot because she affirms learning a lot in every episode.</p> <p>“I’m surprised with what I learn. Maddy Moon’s interview stuck with me because of how she talked about the beginner’s mindset. It’s about opening up to listen to someone,” shares Allison Pelot. “The only way we’re going actually to be able to connect with each other is if we have a beginner’s mindset. Accept that we don’t know everything.”</p> <h3>Coaching Services And Other Resources</h3> <p>Allison Pelot provides coaching services.  She also has personal training, small group fitness, nutrition coaching, and workshops.</p> <p>Those who want a more in-depth wellness program can sign up for Allison Pelot’s retreat in Oregon which is scheduled this spring. She is also currently working on a book and an online course about digestion for hormonal balance.</p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Allison Pelot started out as a competitive gymnast from age 5 to 21 years and later graduated with a Degree in Exercise Science from Georgia State University.

240 The Real Causes of Depression, and the Unexpected Solutions with Johann Hari and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Understanding Addiction</strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/understanding-addiction/">http://learntruehealth.com/understanding-addiction/</a></strong></span></p> <p>Understanding addiction, depression and anxiety rank high among the problems that people face. But conventional medicine often masks these problems by prescribing drugs. Johann Hari is a wonderful book author who is here today to explain the real cause of these problems and how we can solve it.</p> <h3>Chasing The Scream Book</h3> <p>In writing <strong><a href="https://amzn.to/2ufYmCS" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Chasing The Scream</a></strong>, Johann Hari recalls the personal journey it took for him to put the book together. He says the whole process taught him to think differently about something very close to his heart.</p> <p>You see, when Johann Hari was growing up, he realized his family was dealing with issues, and that triggered his curiosity on understanding addiction. Eventually, Johann Hari went to places that had different approaches to responding to addiction.</p> <p>According to Johann Hari, there are varying levels on how cultures deal with understanding addiction. Apparently, there are countries like Portugal wherein the government is compassionate when it comes to understanding addiction.</p> <p>“The thing that most surprised me for the book is that it led directly to the journey. For my new book, Lost Connections, I realized I had fundamentally misunderstood what addiction was,” said Johann Hari. </p> <p>Johann Hari also shares that in countries like Great Britain, if a person steps out in front of a truck and breaks their hip, the hospital would give them a drug called diamorphine, for the pain. Incidentally, diamorphine is heroin in a medically pure form. </p> <p>“If what we think about addiction is right, it should be happening to all these people in the hospitals, but it’s not. The dosage is strong, but people are not addicted to it. It’s the opposite for people who do drugs in the streets,” said Johann Hari.</p> <h3>Rat Park</h3> <p>Johann Hari only began understanding addiction when he went to Vancouver and met Professor Bruce Alexander who he says changed his life. Apparently, Professor Bruce Alexander explained this theory of addiction in a different light.</p> <p>Professor Bruce Alexander did an experiment way back in the 1970s using rats. One rat was isolated and did nothing but take drugs. To broaden the experiment, Professor Bruce Alexander built a Rat Park.</p> <p>In the Rat Park, rats had colored balls, rat-food, and tunnels to play along with other rats.</p> <p>There were also two kinds of water bottles; one was drugged water. It turns out most of the rats didn’t like the drugged water, and none of them died. The isolated rats, on the other hand, became heavy users of the drug.</p> <p>“What this taught me is that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety but rather connection. And that requires us to respond in a completely different way to addiction,” Johann Hari said. “Normally, we have an approach based on shame and stigma which says what we need to do is impose more suffering on people who got addiction problems. But actually, pain is the cause of addiction.”</p> <h3>Understanding Depression And Anxiety</h3> <p>Johann Hari says the cause of addiction is about not wanting to be present in your life because your life is too painful than its supposed to be. Furthermore, he explains that when we have a story about our pain, it structures our distress.</p> <p>“When your story begins to shift about that, and if you realize that depression and anxiety are not what you thought they were, that’s very destabilizing,” said Johann Hari. “It’s only if we accurately understand what is happening, that’s when we could find meaningful solutions.”</p> <p>In writing Chasing The Scream book, it took Johann Hari a journey of 30,000 miles around the world interviewing experts and looking into different cultures. Ultimately, he learned a lot. We misunderstood depression and anxiety as a culture, and we’ve ignored what the best research shows us. </p> <h3>Eye-opening Situation</h3> <p>Johann Hari shares that in 2000, Portugal faced a severe situation. The country had one of the worse problems in Europe. For starters, 1% of the population was addicted to heroin.</p> <p>Every year, they tried to solve the situation the American way. They arrested more people, imprisoned more people, but it got worse. Then one day, the prime minister and the leader of the opposition got together in an effort towards understanding addiction. Together, they decided to do something bold since the war on drugs began 70 years before.</p> <p>The government set up a panel of doctors, social workers, and sociologists to make recommendations. The group went on to spend two years researching. Eventually, the panel recommended that the government decriminalize all drugs. They also suggested allocating the government budget towards turning people’s lives around.</p> <p>The government listened to the recommendations and put it into action. They spent some money on residential rehabilitation, therapy, and job creation. Small loans were also granted to those who wanted to start a small business. And guess what? The system worked! </p> <p>“If you trust in the journey, you will find better explanations. And those better explanations will open up different solutions. I think this is also how my Chasing The Scream book gave birth to me writing the Lost Connection.”</p> <h3>Lost Connection Book</h3> <p><strong><a href="https://amzn.to/2IOQfAd" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Lost Connection</a></strong> book details the nine real causes of depression and anxiety. It also contains Johann Hari’s interactions with scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions for depression and anxiety.</p> <p>“There was equally strong evidence that we have natural psychological needs. We need to feel we belong and that life has meaning, the need to feel valued and that the future makes sense,” said Johann Hari. “Our culture is good at lots of things, but we’ve been getting less good at meeting these deep underlying psychological need that people have.”</p> <h3>Personal Experience</h3> <p>Johann Hari recalls the time he went to a doctor during his teenage years. He told the doctor about this pain bleeding out of him and that he couldn’t seem to regulate it. That made Johann Hari feel ashamed.</p> <p>But then that doctor had a completely different biological story on how the brain works. So, it turned out that Johann Hari ended up being given prescribed drugs. Those drugs offered only temporary relief. Johann Hari remembers going back for higher doses but still experienced bouts of depression. Luckily, he eventually got out of that situation.</p> <p>“We’ve been told to say to people that depression is just a brain disease or chemical imbalance and that we should just identify it by using a checklist. But we do not understand human pain,” said Johann Hari. </p> <h3>Grief And Depression</h3> <p>Johann Hari says grief is not a pathology but instead a natural and human response. Depression and grief have the same symptoms.</p> <p>“A leading U.S. expert on the debate on traumatic grief told me that if we can start to admit that it can be a response to life, that requires a total system overhaul on how the whole system works,” said Johann Hari. “Depression is grief for your own wider needs not being met.”</p> <p>How then can we measure depression? Apparently, depression can be measured by something called the Hamilton scale from 1 to 51, with 51 being the worst. According to the leading experts at Harvard Medical School, chemical anti-depressants on average, will move people 1.8 points on the Hamilton scale. So here, you can see why drugs are not solving people’s problems.</p> <h3>Being Happy</h3> <p>Johann Hari reveals that there was a recent study about happiness involving people living in four countries —- United States, Russia, China, and Japan. The study showed that in the United States when people want to become consciously happier, they fail to do so. But in other countries, it’s the opposite.</p> <p>Now, how can that be? Apparently, when most people in the United States try to make themselves happier, they do something for themselves. In the other countries, their definition of happiness means doing something for someone else.</p> <p>“We have an implicitly individualistic idea of what it means to be happy. And a lot of other cultures implicitly have a collective idea of what it means to be happy,” said Johann Hari. “The more you think life is about how you look to other people, how much money you have and how much status you have, the more likely you will become depressed and anxious.”</p> <p>Incidentally, if we just single out the United States, Johann Hari says the Amish people have the lowest rate of depression in the United States. This is because they also have the most collective idea of what it means to be happy.</p> <p>Johann Hari also points out that having good spiritual health can positively impact the reduction of depression and anxiety. He says studies showed that the positive effects of a reduction in depression, anxiety, and addiction, are extremely co-related with the intensity of a person’s spiritual experience. </p> <p>“To get to the solution, we need to understand what is causing the problem. This is mostly a social, psychological, and spiritual crisis happening. People are hungry for this different kind of conversation. And I think people can see this is necessary.” </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Johann Hari is the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream, which is being adapted into a feature film.

The journey wasn’t easy for my guests Ryan and Teddy Sternagel. This episode is all about how they weathered that storm.</p> <h3>How It All Began</h3> <p>The My Kid Cures Cancer bandwagon has been around for almost four years now.  It traces its roots back to when Teddy Sternagel got pregnant with son Ryder who is turning five years old this May.</p> <p>The Sternagels describe themselves to be health-conscious parents.  Ryder was born at a birth center, and the Sternagel couple has long before already agreed not to vaccinate their child. The couple both ate healthily and Teddy even breastfed Ryder for two and a half years.</p> <h3>The Lump</h3> <p>Teddy Sternagel recalls that leading up to his first birthday; there were some things about Ryder that didn’t feel right. He had a hard time sitting up on his own. And from being a very chunky baby, he rapidly dropped down the growth chart.</p> <p>Ryder was turning one that month and was nowhere near even being able to crawl much less even turn over. He had stopped growing at around six months of age. After being born above the 90th percentile in both height and weight, he had dropped down to the 25th.</p> <p>“I was told by a Naturopath that it’s because I was breastfeeding him. Looking back, I felt that’s not true at all,” relates Teddy Sternagel. “One night in May 2014, I was getting Ryder ready for bed. As I was nursing him, I noticed a lump in Ryder’s back right next to his spine.” </p> <h3>More Red Flags</h3> <p>The Sternagels started to realize there were more symptoms to be worried other than the lump on Ryder’s back. Ryder could not handle any solid food and would gag whenever he was fed anything. He also suffered from constipation. But doctors initially brushed off these concerns.</p> <p>“We were told just to keep an eye on the lump and begin physical therapy for walking and speech therapy for eating,” said Teddy Sternagel. “The whole speech and physical therapy did not set right with us because we wanted to know why does he have a lump in his back and figure it out before doing anything else.”</p> <h3>The Official Diagnosis</h3> <p>After several weeks of hospital visits and tests, the official diagnosis finally came out before Ryder’s first birthday. Results showed that Ryder had a growing tumor larger than his kidney and out of his spinal canal. There were also two secondary tumors which had metastasized into his bones.</p> <p>Tests also showed Ryder had been born with a double aortic arch. It was not life-threatening, but a heart surgery would be needed to correct it. This was why Ryder had a hard time swallowing solid foods.</p> <h3>Finding The Right Doctor</h3> <p>Finding the right doctor is not easy. It takes a lot of research. Initially, the Sternagels didn’t have much choice but to go ahead with conventional treatment. </p> <p>“With the FDA, you don’t have much choice. You have to do conventional treatment,” said Teddy Sternagel. “The chemotherapy did its job. It shrunk Ryder’s tumor very quickly. So we thought of not doing the entire protocol, stop early and take Ryder the rest of the way holistically.”</p> <h3>Moving To Utah</h3> <p>The Sternagels decided to move to Utah to continue Ryder’s treatment.  They were still on a conventional protocol but chose to seek alternative treatment after the fourth round of chemotherapy.</p> <p>The couple felt blessed to have Naturopathic Oncologist Dr. Paul Anderson on their team. Their doctor respected their decision to seek an alternative route. Hence, the Sternagels felt lucky because not everyone was fortunate enough to have the right support system.</p> <p>“Naturopaths are like doctors. There are good and bad. You have to take each person as an individual. And I think people get into trouble when they just put all of their faith into one group of people,” said Teddy Sternagel.</p> <h3>Researching On Alternative Treatments</h3> <p>The Sternagels researched continuously on alternative treatments for several years. One useful treatment is to have Ryder do saunas to sweat out the toxins from his body.</p> <p>“Cancer cells can’t stand the heat as well as regular cells can. We sauna almost every night for at least half an hour because it takes at least 15 minutes before we can sweat,” Ryan Sternagel said. </p> <p>He adds, “There are a lot of different alternative treatments and different theories of cancer. So you want to be addressing all of those theories and system of the body.”</p> <p>I agree with the effectiveness of saunas.  <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was on my show recently</a> where he explained the benefits of sweating and taking a cooling shower after the sauna to rise out the toxins.</p> <p>Incidentally, Ryan Sternagel also revealed that <a href= "https://www.sunlighten.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">his sauna unit is also from Sunlighten</a>.  For those interested in getting a sauna, you can get $150 discount just by mentioning My Kid Cures Cancer upon purchase. </p> <h3>Cause Of Ryder’s Cancer</h3> <p>Cancer is caused by many factors. In fact, a past guest of mine, <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/what-causes-cancer/">Dr. Tullio Simoncini, said during his interview in episode 136 that all cancer is from fungus.</a></p> <p>In Ryder’s case, Teddy Sternagel believes that being so stressed from work while she was pregnant played a significant factor. She handled it poorly, and she hardly got any exercise.</p> <p>Teddy Sternagel also believes that being around wi-fi and so many gadgets as well as being in a toxic environment has adverse effects. That is why she advises pregnant women to make sure they get enough exercise, relax, eat right and make sure to detox once in a while.</p> <h3>Extra Resources</h3> <p>The My Kid Cures Cancer website is an excellent resource for alternative treatments for kids who have cancer.  The Sternagels have taken the initiative to enumerate a complete and comprehensive list on the My Kid Cures Cancer website containing supplements, essential oils, anti-cancer products, and cancer-fighting tools that helped Ryder recover.</p> <p>Aside from the My Kid Cures Cancer website, the Sternagels also have a podcast. Listeners can tune in to learn more about their journey as well as learn several ways of living a healthy, cancer-free life.</p> <h3>Additional Tips</h3> <p>The Sternagels also provided the following tips to help may sure your stays in tip-top shape:</p> <ol> <li>Have a prep day. One day each week where you set aside a couple of hours. Start a few jars of sprouts. Just start fermenting something. Make a huge batch of juice and freeze half of it. And make a big healthy dip for veggies.</li> <li>Take stock of your supplements, fill capsules. Fill your pantry and order dry goods (better selection and prices online). Plan out meals and make a shopping list for produce. Make it a family event and have kids hands on.</li> <li>Incorporate hot and cold into your whole family’s life. Do contrast showers for yourself and your kids. Get a sauna. Go outside in the cold in minimal clothes. Do ice baths. Make it a fun thing.</li> <li>Have proper light at proper times. Get red light bulbs for your lamps and turn them on and overhead lights off when the sun goes down. Get blue blocking glasses for screen time. Again, make it fun for the family.</li> </ol> <h3>Ryder In Remission</h3> <p>Ryder is currently in remission. After stopping chemotherapy, he takes scans every three months. It’s a wait-and-see approach. </p> <p>“You don’t necessarily have to have all the answers and be the expert in every different category. There’s a lot of experts in a lot of different things, but you’re the only expert in your kid as a whole,” said Ryan Sternagel. </p> <p>Teddy Sternagel adds, “We as parents have an intuitive gift. It’s there for a reason, and you just have to follow it.” </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Ryan and Teddy Sternagel started My Kid Cures Cancer one year after their son Ryder was diagnosed in 2014 with stage four neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer of the nervous system.</em></p> <p><em>Wanting to do everything they could for their son The Sternagels dove deep into integrative research and as a result, today Ryder is a happy, healthy little boy.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Early on in the journey, however, it had become apparent that practically no information of this kind existed written in a way that parents could understand if and how it would apply to their children.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>After consulting with doctors and health experts all over the world, and a whole lot of trial and error, My Kid Cures Cancer was born to make finding this information accessible to other parents that need it.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Through its videos, podcast and in-depth articles, My Kid Cures Cancer provides parents with information both on integrative approaches to cancer treatment for those that need it and how to make sure cancer never afflicts their family in the first place for everyone else.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>With his incredible attitude and willingness to eat the healthiest of foods and take as many supplements as Ryan and Teddy hand him, Ryder now inspires children all over the world to take their health seriously. “If Ryder can do it, so can I!”</em></p> <h3>Get Connected With Ryan and Teddy Sternagel!</h3> <p><strong><a href="https://www.mykidcurescancer.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.facebook.com/mykidcurescancer" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.instagram.com/mykidcurescancer" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.youtube.com/mykidcurescancer" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Youtube</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.sunlighten.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Sunlighten Sauna</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Reading by Ryan and Teddy Sternagel!</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2GihJ2M" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Metabolic Approach to Cancer</a>  by Dr. Nasha Winters</strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1603586865&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1603586865" alt="" /> <h3>Recommended Links:</h3> <p><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/what-causes-cancer/">What Causes Cancer – Episode 136</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">Heavy Metals Detox – Episode 218</a></strong></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Support Us on Patreon & <strong>Join the Learn True Health Book Club</strong>!!!

238 Why Sustainable Food Systems Are the Missing Link to Solving Our Health and Environmental Problems, Plant Based Nutrition, Sustainability and the Whole Foods Diet with Registered Dietitian Sharon Palmer, Ashley James, Learn True Health Podcast
<p>Books:<br /> The Plant-Powered Diet: http://amzn.to/2FJGZLP<br /> Plant-Powered for Life: http://amzn.to/2DwIqeI<br /> Free Plant-Powered Newsletter<br /> Blog: The Plant-Powered Dietitian</p> <p><a href= "https://sharonpalmer.com/meet-sharon">https://sharonpalmer.com/meet-sharon</a></p> <p> </p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Sustainability Of Plant-Based Nutrition</span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><strong><a title= "http://learntruehealth.com/sustainability-o…-based-nutrition/" href= "http://learntruehealth.com/sustainability-of-plant-based-nutrition/"> http://learntruehealth.com/<span id= "editable-post-name">sustainability-o…-based-nutrition</span>/</a></strong></span></p> <p>Sustainability of plant-based nutrition is a serious matter that we should look into. For the sake of our health, the planet and animal welfare, it's about time we take control.  To explain more about why we should take action towards sustainability of plant-based nutrition, Sharon Palmer is back on the show for the second time around.</p> <p>I also strongly recommend listeners to check out <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/plant-based-diet/">my episode with Sharon Palmer on episode 197.</a> She revealed a lot of things you need to know about a plant-based diet.</p> <h3>General Perceptions</h3> <p>My husband and I have been trying a plant-based diet for almost three months now. I eat chicken sometimes, but other than that, I make a conscious effort to eat organic produce most of the time.</p> <p>Sharon Palmer says a lot of people don't realize that there are a lot of delicious ways to eat a plant-based diet. But most of the time, people think they're going to be missing out on something.</p> <p>"Primates are vegans. We are similar to them. Eating a plant-based diet makes cholesterol and glucose drop," explains Sharon Palmer. "Whole plant food is so satisfying and delicious. Plus, your body will be flooded with nutrients that benefit in so many ways."</p> <p>Sharon Palmer also assures that experiencing hunger, in the beginning, is normal. Because a plant-based diet is so dense in nutrients but low in energy or calories. It is also low in fat naturally. Usually, it takes time easing into the diet, but people eventually get used to it.</p> <p>I was initially worried where I would get my protein requirement in a plant-based diet. But apparently, 18 grams of protein equals one cup of legumes. I was then more than willing to dive into the diet because I love legumes!</p> <h3>Major Problems</h3> <p>Some of the significant problems we have on sustainability are waste management, air pollution, water pollution and soil pollution due to extensive farming and modern animal agriculture. According to Sharon Palmer, all these are detrimental to the environment.</p> <p>"From an environmental standpoint, they concentrate all the manure. In effect, the manure accumulates in lagoons and storage tanks," said Sharon Palmer.</p> <p>In a past episode, Dr. Mark Hyman said, when farmers pay more attention to the health of the soil, that is when we get healthy crops. And that will ultimately sustain our health.</p> <p>Soil plays a big factor in all this.  Part of the equation is the state of biodynamic farming, allowing the animals to walk on the fields during offseason and enable their manure to be stomped into the ground naturally. Studies have shown that biodynamic farms have a higher yield of produce than those produced with a bunch of chemicals.</p> <p>"A lot of times we think the soil is just dirt. But soil is living and breathing. We are so interested in our gut microbiome now, but the soil has a microbiome," Sharon Palmer explains. "It is enriched with all of these organisms that help decay the organic matter and contribute nutrients to the soil. Modern agriculture treats soil as an inert substance." </p> <p>She adds, "But at the same time, this compost has all the things like manure and compost. Part of our natural environment has all the things needed regarding nutrients in the soil, and it breaks down slowly, adding organic materials to the soil."</p> <h3>Present Focus</h3> <p>Sharon Palmer's primary focus on sustainability is looking at the food system rather than focusing on micro-agriculture. She is also currently learning about biodynamics and regenerative agriculture to restore the soil and looking into food policies, food systems, and security.</p> <p>"Sustainability goes beyond just the environment. A lot of people think of the environment as the only aspect of sustainability," said Sharon Palmer. "Sustainability means we want the food system to move beyond and be available for future generations. That means healthful, affordable food that everybody has access to." </p> <p>She adds, "Just because people who can afford it can go to the farmers market and buy organic produce, that doesn't mean it's available to everyone. It involves things like economics, society, and community."</p> <h3>How We Grow Our Food</h3> <p>Sharon Palmer also shares that her plant-based nutrition matches her work as a journalist and speaker for nutrition. According to her, the healthcare professional world has a lack of understanding of the food system.</p> <p>"We're so focused on nutrients. Sometimes, we don't take it all the way back to the soil and how we're growing our food," Sharon Palmer said. "It is intriguing that crops we are eating today have zero nutrients than crops grown 50 years ago."</p> <p>Sharon Palmer says we change our varieties so much, that when we buy our orange carrots, supermarkets and nature apparently produces many other types. Often, the crop varieties we have now have much lower nutrients than their ancient relatives. Apparently, this is because we bred the nutrients out of these vegetables.</p> <p>Secondly, Sharon Palmer says it takes two weeks after harvest for us to get our produce at the supermarket. And we know produce loses nutrients daily after being picked.</p> <p>Lastly, evidence shows that climate change is changing the nutrient value of our vegetables. And because temperatures are rising, it changes the actual composition of our crops.</p> <p>This is why Sharon Palmer recommends eating freshly harvested produce as much as possible. It also helps if we could grow our food and eat more varieties.</p> <h3>Impact Of Pesticides</h3> <p>Sharon Palmer says that research has shown farming communities have the highest risk of adverse effects of pesticides because farmers breathe the air and live on the farm. This is one of the reasons why Sharon Palmer supports organic agriculture.</p> <p>Personally, <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/cause-of-autism-dr-stephanie-seneff/">my interview with Dr. Stephanie Seneff on episode 89</a> was such an eye-opener. In the episode, she revealed the link between glyphosate and autism. Glyphosate is a chelator. It binds to heavy metals, but it also releases heavy metals once the agent changes pH.  The pH changes when fluids in our body change.</p> <p>"Everybody knew that glyphosate wouldn't work anymore. Nature has a way of evolving," said Sharon Palmer. "We have to look at the next herbicide that they are using, to see what the implications are. California has been aggressive in seeing the risks of glyphosate."</p> <h3>What We Can Do</h3> <p>Sharon Palmer says the United States has one of the cheapest food supplies in the world. Because when you look at the percentage of our income, it goes to food. But then we're so used to buying cheap food. And it's hard to get people to pay more to for food that has a higher quality. </p> <p>"Americans eat a lot of food. There's an opportunity to eat more of what we need every day and not waste so much. We waste 40% of our food so must learn to put more value in food," Sharon Palmer said. "A lot of people don't realize that we have a lot of programs in farmers markets to connect people and make them eat more healthy produce."</p> <p>I'm planning to grow my vegetables in my garden and share it with friends and family as well as donate to my community's local food bank. It is essential to create a sense of unity in the community by having every family pitch in to do their part and start their garden, too.</p> <p>Extra lands on church grounds and schools can also be converted into vegetable gardens for the benefit of the community. Sharon Palmer shares that there are already a lot of schools around the country trying to educate students through growing vegetables on school grounds. </p> <p>"The movement is already happening. We have to expose it to people before we lose connection with our soil. I also think that if you grow your food, you also value it more because you spend a lot of time nourishing it," said Sharon Palmer.</p> <h3>Changing Our Diet</h3> <p>Sharon Palmer reveals that Americans are the top meat eaters in the world. Overeating meat is not suitable for health, and it is advisable to cut your meat consumption in half. Just think of what it can do for animal welfare, your health and also the planet.</p> <p>To ease into the transition to a plant-based diet, try avoiding meat once a week. Start thinking about your plate differently. In fact, my past guest, Dr. Mark Hyman recommended to make meat a condiment.</p> <p>There's a vegan burger recipe I have which I make with quinoa, chickpeas, rice cauliflower and avocado. Then I wrap in uncooked purple cabbage and add a little taco seasoning. My family loves it, and I suggest you should try this easy recipe, too. The taste takes a little getting used to, but it's delicious!</p> <p>On the other hand, Sharon Palmer's favorite breakfast is oatmeal porridge with whatever fruits in season, flax seeds and walnuts with no sugar. It's an easy recipe and very healthy for the body.</p> <p>"Research shows that you can train your taste buds and gradually reduce preference level for sweet and salty," Sharon Palmer said.</p> <h3>Sharon Palmer's Books</h3> <p>There's so much to learn about the plant-based diet. According to Sharon Palmer, her book, Plant-Powered Diet is the bible of plant-based eating. There are a lot of tips on how to choose food like whole grains and how many vegetables to eat every day.</p> <p>Her other book, Plant-Powered For Life, is a straightforward approach to anything from the plant-based diet.  The book also contains a lot of recipes that's so easy to do and delicious so check it out.</p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Sharon Palmer has created an award-winning career based on combining her two great loves: food and writing.

237 Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? Busting Diet Myths, Vegan vs. Paleo, Keto, Gluten Free, with Dr. Mark Hyman and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Detailed Show Notes Coming Soon!<br /></span></strong></p> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman's New Book: http://amzn.to/2Fxp7bd</p> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2Fxp7bd" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Food: What The Heck Should I Eat?</a></p> <p>This is the sauna I got and highly recommend! <a href= "https://www.sunlighten.com/mpulse-infrared-saunas">https://www.sunlighten.com/mpulse-infrared-saunas</a></p> <p> </p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Diet Myths </strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/diet-myths/"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/diet-myths/</strong></a></span></p> <p>Diet myths deter most people from going in the right direction. Whether it be for weight loss or reversing illnesses, knowing what diet myths that aren’t true can ultimately guide us to eating right. Dr. Mark Hyman is a former mentor of mine who will help bust several diet myths in today’s episode.</p> <h3>Growing Up Years</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman grew up in Spain, and he recalls his mother loved shopping at the market every day for fresh food. His mother also tended her garden at home and always stressed the need to buy fresh and eat fresh.</p> <p>As he grew older, Dr. Mark Hyman chanced upon a book written by Roger Williams called Nutrition Against Disease. That book influenced him to lead a healthy lifestyle until he became a yoga teacher apart from teaching health and becoming a vegetarian.</p> <p>“I’m 58 years old now. I look at my body 30 or 40 years ago when I first became a vegetarian. I was a scrawny thing with no muscle mass,” recalls Dr. Mark Hyman. “And I am now exercising far less. But changing my diet to more high fat, low starch diet, with adequate amounts of good quality protein. And I am far more muscular and fit than when I was 20 years old.”</p> <h3>Food As Medicine</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman remembers that he got sick from mercury poisoning in China years ago.  He discovered a whole new world in functional medicine because of his illness. Food was the primary medicine to cure his condition. Dr. Mark Hyman food is a drug because it acts faster and cheaper than most drugs.</p> <p>“There have been so many additives added to food over the last hundred years, almost  2,000 additives in our food. Very few have been tested adequately and were passed by the FDA as safe until we learn that they’re not,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.</p> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman, there’s so many examples of additives like transfat. It is a part of our diet that has never been proven to be safe.</p> <p>“There’s a lot of things in our food that we think is healthy.  A lot of health food store products have thickeners that cause leaky gut, toxic plastic containers, and all kinds of food additives,” Dr. Mark Hyman revealed. “It can cause autism, neurodevelopmental issues, and psychiatric problems. Artificial sweeteners can also cause weight gain, diabetes and damage the gut microbiome.” </p> <h3>Finding The Right Diet</h3> <p>I currently practice a keto and paleo diet. This is because my Naturopath found our I had elevated cardiovascular markers and my blood work was not going in the right direction.</p> <p>It’s tricky finding the right diet that works. Dr. Mark Hyman says that lowering meat intake is a great starting point as well as portion control. Busting diet myths has been his expertise for the longest time.</p> <h3>Institute For Integrative Nutrition</h3> <p>Incidentally, when I was part of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s year-long health coach training program, Dr. Mark Hyman was one of my teachers. To those who want to become a health coach or merely increase your knowledge of health and nutrition, do sign up at IIN. Also, mention Learn True Health to avail of the special student rate.</p> <h3>Sunlighten Sauna</h3> <p>Like I have mentioned in a past episode, I have been losing weight and getting rid of the toxins in my body by using my <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease/">Sunlighten sauna</a>. Dr. Mark Hyman is also an owner of a sauna unit and attests to the health benefits of doing saunas every day.</p> <p>I highly recommend the sauna company since they also provide a fantastic financing payment option.  They offer free shipping which is valued at $600, and they also offer $100 discount on sauna accessories.</p> <h3>What The Heck Should We Eat Book</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman says we have to look more comprehensively at our diet. In his book, Dr. Mark Hyman writes about diet myths and what science shows.</p> <p>Mostly, his book does more than just busting diet myths. It is an eater’s guide to food in the 21st century. The book teaches you how to eat food and what brand is good for your health, planet, climate, economy, helping poverty and violence and providing educational disparity. Dr. Mark Hyman illustrates that food is at the center of all those situations.</p> <h3>Statistics Don’t Lie</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman explains that a ketogenic diet contains 70 percent fat. It is extremely high fat and very low carb diet. The ketogenic diet reverses diabetes of over 60% of people suffering from the disease, 4% got out of medication and insulin.</p> <p>“My body composition changed when I changed to higher fat diet, and eating lots of protein, vegetables and lots of fat. My muscle mass increased even if I was not exercising as much,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.</p> <h3>Effects On the Environment</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman says that one of the issues of the environmental movement is to eat less meat. But what meat are we eating? If it is grass-fed meat, Dr. Mark Hyman says it’s a whole different issue.</p> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman also mentions that there’s a book called Kiss the Ground by Josh Tickell. It’s an amazing story all about the soil. Because soil is the key to our health in so many ways. </p> <p>“The carbon from the environment gets sequestered or held in the soil. Soil erosion and other negative effects on the soil are happening because of how we grow food. Hence, properly grazing animals can help the soil regenerate,” said Dr. Mark Hyman. </p> <h3>Importance Of Fiber</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman says fiber is important because it fertilizes the good bacteria in the gut. He also says that our microbiome is essential.</p> <p>“Because when we feed our microbiome junk food, they turn into junky bacteria. They also produce some nasty chemicals. When we feed them a lot of fiber, there’s a huge difference in the health of the microbiome,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.</p> <p>Studies have shown that Americans only eat an average of 8 to 15 grams of fiber a day. Typically, 50 grams is a right amount to target aside from drinking a lot of water.</p> <h3>Dangers Of Sugar And Flour</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman reveals that half of Americans have pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Currently, 90% are not diagnosed, and 70% of Americans are overweight.</p> <p>“We are biologically designed to crave and love sugar because it helps us store fat for the winter. If we could eat anything that’s starchy, has carbs, sugar or honey, we will put on weight right away. And that’s a good thing from an evolutionary point of view,” said Dr. Mark Hyman. </p> <p>But he also adds,”Now in our era, we have 152 pounds of sugar and 133 pounds of flour which is worse than sugar. We are actually in a toxic situation. Because Flour has a higher glycemic index than sugar.”</p> <h3>Busting More Diet Myths</h3> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman says the standard advice of eating less and exercising more to lose weight is the biggest lie. He says it’s about the quality of the calories you eat, not the amount.</p> <p>“If you focus on what you’re eating and not how much, you will naturally do the right thing. So when you can’t exercise your way out of a bad diet, you have to make sure that you’re eating the right food,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.</p> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman also says that people who eat a high glycemic diet have a higher risk of dementia. So we should all be eating an extremely low glycemic diet.</p> <p>He explains that people who eat gluten do tiny microscopic damage to their gut which leads to inflammation. Ultimately, it breaks the linkages between our cells and our intestines will become loose, also known as leaky gut. </p> <p>“If you know how to work your biology, you can be fully satisfied, happy and energetic with your diet. You don’t have to deprive yourself. Use science rather than willpower to fix your biology,” said Dr. Mark Hyman.</p> <p>To know more about diet-related topics, I recommend listening to my <a href="http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease/">past episodes with Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn</a>, <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease/">Dr. Jack Wolfson</a>, and <a href="http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease/">Dr. William Davis</a>.</p> <p>Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, believes that we all deserve a life of vitality and that we have the potential to create it for ourselves. That’s why he is dedicated to tackling the causes of chronic disease by harnessing the power of Functional Medicine to transform healthcare. Dr. Mark Hyman and his team work every day to empower people, organizations, and communities to heal their bodies and minds, and improve our social and economic resilience. </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Dr. Mark Hyman is a practicing family physician, a ten-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator, and advocate in his field.

236 Love Food Again with Registered Dietitian, Eating Disorder Specialist, and Food Behavior Expert Julie Duffy Dillon and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Food Peace </strong></span></h2> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/food-peace/">http://learntruehealth.com/food-peace/</a></strong></span></p> <p>Food peace is all about how to love food again. Most of us fear food because we are afraid of gaining weight. But my guest today is registered dietician Julie Duffy Dillon who will break down some steps on how we can achieve food peace.</p> <h3>On A Mission</h3> <p>Julie Duffy Dillon is an eating disorder specialist who helps people with weight issues and helps them attain food peace.  She was a conventionally-trained dietician and generally, it takes people six years of study to do the job.</p> <p>Getting out of school, Julie Duffy Dillon thought she was more than prepared to help people achieve food peace. After a few years, she realized that most people were not able to lose weight and the tools she had for food peace was missing the point.</p> <p>“I felt there was another dynamics, so I quit and got a degree in mental health counseling. Then I started researching diets,” said Julie Duffy Dillon. “No diet will help you go long-term. Diets lead to weight regain. It led to me getting into knowing how eating disorders happen.”</p> <h3>Busting Myths</h3> <p>According to Julie Duffy Dillon, when we pursue weight loss, we miss health. She says health is also how much power we have in our world. The journey towards food peace comes from finding what works for you and fixing the world’s view of our bodies.</p> <p>“Many people think they can control all aspects of health. It’s not just about the food we eat or the way we move our body. Stress, poverty, and depression also play a big factor. Outside things determine 75% percent of health,” Julie Dillion said.</p> <p>Julie Duffy Dillon essentially helps her clients realize that the body has wisdom.  To be able to have food peace, one must learn how to listen to their body and figure out what energizes or depletes them.</p> <p><strong>PCOS</strong></p> <p>I have dealt with polycystic ovary syndrome.  It is a condition wherein my hormone levels were affected, but I was able to reverse it through a change of diet and lifestyle.</p> <p>Julie Duffy Dillon says medical doctors tend to tell their patients they’re not trying hard enough. They usually advise patients to cut food groups and exercise more.  But Julie Duffy Dillon says she has found a way to veer away from diets by practicing self-care.</p> <p>“I help people find their place of passions. We shouldn’t feel like being tortured by food. Eat enough to be a human to have energy,” said Julie Duffy Dillon. “I help clients pick something sustainable and educate them on how to listen to their body.”</p> <h3>Body Shaming</h3> <p>Shame is a big part of eating disorders, and it deters attaining food peace. According to Julie, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of all mental illnesses, so they’re a big deal.</p> <p>“I want to do every I can to help prevent it. Shame doesn’t promote health, although it’s something we often lean on. But it’s certainly not something that works to change behavior in the long-term,” said Julie Duffy Dillon.</p> <p>I had experienced shame when I was younger. My mother would subject me to shame whenever I ate rice or anything unhealthy.  It was my mom’s way of showing she loved me enough to care about my health but emotionally and mentally, it did affect me.</p> <p>“Unfortunately, when our motivation is fear-based, we don’t tend to make the best decisions. We need to come from genuine love because we live in a world that is not too kind to people of size,” Julie Duffy Dillon said.</p> <h3>Trust Your Body</h3> <p>Julie also stresses the need to teach children to love their bodies and to trust the messages of their body. Society puts too much emphasis on body size, and that leads to more severe problems like eating disorders. And when that happens, food peace fails.</p> <p>I was concerned about my weight mainly when I was pregnant.  But I learned from my Naturopath that apparently, weight has nothing to do with a healthy pregnancy.  In fact, the primary thing to look out for was blood work, and mine was great!</p> <p>“I think there’s a manipulation in the diet industry that makes us all freak out when we are 10 or 20 pounds heavier when it’s not as concerning,” said Julie Duffy Dillon </p> <p>She also adds, “Speaking for my clients in recovery, positive body weight is important to maintain recovery. It is essential for them not to diet again or else there will be a relapse.” </p> <h3>Dangers Of Eating Disorders</h3> <p>Julie Duffy Dillon says suicide is a component for some people. She says some people die, but there’s a medical risk associated with it, too. In fact, there used to be a medical category called, “Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified Condition,” which according to Julie Duffy Dillon, the mortality rate was highest in that group. </p> <p>“People with the condition usually die in their sleep. There are many facilities now that specialize in nutritional rehabilitation. They are usually on an out-patient level like my program. My rehab program is once a week and ideally, for three to six months,” said Julie Duffy Dillon.</p> <h3>Model Healthy Behavior</h3> <p>Julie Duffy Dillon thinks that sometimes, people want kids to know what’s healthy and not healthy. How kids learn nutrition is interesting.</p> <p>“When we are younger, we are concrete thinkers. Nutrition and teaching healthy eating is a very abstract, formal and operational type of way of thinking,” explains Julie Duffy Dillon. So when a person is trying to teach moderation or healthy eating to a kid through words, their brain is not going to get it on the same level compared to a grown up.”</p> <p>So what then is the best way to teach kids? Julie Duffy Dillon says exposure is the best teacher. Exposing kids to gardens allow them to learn agriculture and enable them to see how plants grow and what they taste like.</p> <p>“It must be a hands-on way of teaching nutrition. Practice model healthy behavior by not talking about bodies unless it is something neutral or positive” said Julie Duffy Dillon.</p> <h3>Tips For Adults</h3> <p>First of all, Julie Duffy Dillon suggests having sufficient knowledge of your history with food. Because sometimes, eating is not just about hunger or being full. She says it’s also a connection to our lineage and culture.</p> <p>“Know that you can trust your body and know that there’s a pleasure coming from food like cooking or eating,” suggests Julie Duffy Dillon. “Find out what serves you and what helps you feel energized. Your body was born with this innate wisdom to promote health so you can rely on it even if it has been a while.”</p> <p>Julie Duffy Dillon listed down this very doable 3-step procedure that will ultimately help you achieve food peace:</p> <ol> <li>Permit yourself to eat. You’ve tried diets and know they don’t help long term. What if you experimented with permitting yourself instead?</li> </ol> <ol start="2"> <li>Instead of playing the message “I am a failure for failing my diet,” reframe it to be, “Another diet failed me because none of them work for most people.” You didn’t fail. The diet did.</li> </ol> <ol start="3"> <li>Throw out the scale or smash it with a hammer. Pursuing weight loss predicts more weight gain, isn’t supported by science to promote health and just keeps you from being you. </li> </ol> <h3>Love Food Podcast</h3> <p>To know more about how to get over your eating disorder, tune in to Julie Duffy Dillon’s Love Food Podcast.  Her episodes are packed with information on how you can achieve food peace.</p> <p><em>Julie Duffy Dillon is a Registered Dietitian, Eating Disorder Specialist, and Food Behavior Expert partnering with people on their Food Peace journey.

<p>This is the sauna I got and highly recommend! <a href= "https://www.sunlighten.com/mpulse-infrared-saunas">https://www.sunlighten.com/mpulse-infrared-saunas</a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>For Learn True Health Listeners:</strong></p> <p>Get 20% off EnergyBits by using coupon code: LTH</p> <p> Visit EnergyBits.com</p> <p><a href="EnergyBits.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">http://EnergyBits.com</a></p> <p> </p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Learn True Health Special Episode</strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/learn-true-health/"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/learn-true-health/</strong></a></span></p> <p>Learn True Health is celebrating a special episode since today marks my birthday.  I turned 38 years old today, and I wanted to celebrate by thanking all my loyal listeners.</p> <h3>Different Person</h3> <p>When I started the Learn True Health podcast two years ago, I had no idea it would grow to what it is today. All I wanted was to help as many people as I could, by providing natural alternatives to healing through the experts I invite on the show.</p> <p>I was an entirely different person two years ago. One example is the fact that organic, gluten-free cupcakes were a temptation hard to resist in the past. But I no longer desired them. On the contrary, I was more excited to have a sprout sandwich for lunch.</p> <p>The old me two years ago had so many excuses to eat forbidden treats. But now I get excited about eating vegetables and nourishing my cells. I was just not on that unhealthy scale anymore. </p> <h3>Heartwarming Emails</h3> <p>The Learn True Health podcast motivates me to be healthy.  Over time, my body got used to craving that wonderful feeling of being healthy.  I learned to apply tools to make myself healthier emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically, energetically.</p> <p>Along with all of you listeners, I have learned so much from the guests I invite, as well as the listeners who have taken time to write to me. It is indeed heartwarming to receive emails saying my podcast has made a significant difference in your lives.</p> <h3>Healing Journey</h3> <p>One email narrated how she was sick and bed-ridden for two years. She lost her job, her husband, her self-respect, and her health seemed hopeless because doctors couldn’t find the cause of her illness.</p> <p>The only thing she could do was listen to my Learn True Health podcast and contacted a doctor that I guested on the show.  She later found out she had a severe case of SIBO or small intestinal bacteria overgrowth.</p> <p>That listener is currently slowly getting better and thanked me for helping her get her life back. Getting that email truly touched my heart. Helping people know the benefits of healing naturally is the reason why I started this podcast.</p> <h3>Career Shifts</h3> <p>I also have had some listeners write to me saying I have influenced them to become natural healing health coaches. Some even almost became medical doctors but decided to become a Naturopath because of my Learn True Health podcast.</p> <p>One listener wrote, “I want to acknowledge your amazing podcast. Because I discovered it a couple of months ago and I’m hooked. I’m just beginning my journey of Holistic Health, and I’m so grateful to have your podcast to help lead the way.”</p> <h3>Resource For Multiple Illnesses</h3> <p>A lot of listeners struggle with multiple health problems like a migraine, depression, anxiety and overweight issues. I am thrilled when they tell me that my Learn True Health podcast motivated them to change their diet and it resulted in positive transformation and healing.</p> <p>One other disease that some of my listeners have is Lyme disease. I have guested several experts in past episodes talking extensively on the subject. Contrary to what most people think, Lyme disease can be addressed using natural means.</p> <p><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/supplement-confusion/">I interviewed Jen Saltzman on the show several times</a></strong>. And she has shared so many ways on how to reverse Lyme disease. So to anyone who wants to find out how to do that, do check out the episode on the Learn True Health website.</p> <p>“My boyfriend now takes herbal medication and can’t go a day without them. I want to thank you, even if his hope is pretty much lost. You have brought my hope for him to life,” a listener wrote.</p> <p>That listener went on to say my show is so well put together which I do find very flattering. I do make it a point to be respectful of the guests I have on the show despite differences in opinions.  </p> <h3>Valuable Guests</h3> <p>I believe allowing my guests to talk as much as they want without interruptions enables them to dive into explaining a subject thoroughly. It has been really fortunate for me to be able to bring so many respected health experts on the show. Some charge as much as $400 an hour just for consultations yet they are willing to share so much knowledge on my show for free!</p> <p>I really pray that through my Learn True Health podcast, listeners would be able to find the Holistic answers they are looking for. The most significant thing I want people to have is hope because I have been there. I was a sick person, to the point that doctors thought I was crazy. Holistic medicine brought me back to life by taking supplements, changing my diet and lifestyle, and adopting a healthy mindset.</p> <h3>Adopting A Plant-Based Diet</h3> <p>I think the secret to knowing what health options work for you is the willingness to practice and try different things. Do try things long enough to give it a chance to work.</p> <p>My husband and I started a plant-based diet back in January. It took time to get used to having a diet that’s primarily legumes, nuts, seeds, and gluten free-grains. But I can’t believe how good I feel!</p> <p>Ultimately, it’s really about how you feel. Your body in five years might say it wants meat again. So you have to listen. Because your body is going to have different requirements for different stages of life. Bottomline, it’s ok to shift diets while listening to symptoms or the language of your body.</p> <p>I used to have chronic adrenal fatigue, PCOS, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. But I cured all of those through a change in diet, lifestyle, and taking supplements. It’s been seven years and time flies so fast!</p> <p>Furthermore, when I was 19 years old, medical doctors told me I would never have kids. I eventually married, and six years into my marriage, I finally conceived! I got pregnant with 100% Natural medicine and food. Food healed my body and taking supplements nudged me in the right direction.  Fast forward today, my baby boy is turning three years old soon.</p> <p>It honestly baffles me why medical doctors are not taught much about nutrition in medical school.  It didn’t take rocket science to figure out that taking minerals from our food can make us ill. Drugs merely manage or mask symptoms, but it’s not a cure. Poor diet causes most illnesses. So it’s just logical that the cure also lies in the food you eat. </p> <h3>Weight Problem</h3> <p>I have been struggling with weight issues despite being diligent with diets.  The pounds would come off, but after 15 to 20 pounds, it would come to a halt.  I would then get really over toxic to the point that my eyes would burn, I’d have a sore throat, I could taste metal in my mouth, and body would start smelling like garbage.</p> <p>But then a Naturopath, <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/herbs-for-energy/">Dr. Megan Saunders</a></strong>, advised me to get into a sauna since it looked like my liver was getting overburdened as I lost weight. Apparently, even if you’re just 10 pounds overweight, your body will take in environmental toxins. This is because when there is more fat to store, the more susceptible you are to absorb more toxins.</p> <p>There are many factors why my body was collecting all these toxins.  Aside from the environment, eating junk food made my body suffer.  And sweating is one way of removing toxins from your body.</p> <p>A past guest of mine, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also affirms the benefits of sweating out heavy metals. He has said that the first five minutes, we sweat out 95% of toxins from our body. So five minutes of sweating is ten times the equivalent of 24 hours of peeing.</p> <h3>The Benefit Of Saunas</h3> <p>It finally made sense. More things happen when you sweat longer. I realize I needed to support my body in detoxification while I healthily lose weight.</p> <p>One way to detoxify was through a daily habit of getting into a sauna.  I recently got a portable Sunlighten sauna, which incidentally is owned by Dr. Mark Hyman who will be in one of my future episodes.</p> <p>Furthermore, I bagged a great deal for all you listeners! The sauna company offers free shipping to Learn True Health listeners which is a $600 value. Plus a $100 off on accessories.</p> <p>Saunas are also safe and healthy for children because it boosts the immune system.  The temperature is bearable at 120 degrees. One minute per age is the recommended sauna duration. For example, one minute for a year old child, two minutes for a two-year-old, and so forth.   </p> <h3>Personal Progress</h3> <p>I can’t tell you enough how I love my wooden sauna! I have been using it regularly, and all my back muscles feel so relaxed.  I’m now able to lose weight without any over toxicity, and I have lost seven pounds.</p> <p>I am also taking chlorella by <strong><a href= "https://www.energybits.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">ENERGYbits</a></strong>, whose creator<strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/algae/"> Catharine Arnston was on my show recently</a></strong>.  Listeners can avail of a 20% discount by putting in the LTH code upon checkout on the ENERGYbits website.</p> <p>Rounding it up, a change in diet, getting enough water and exercise, enjoying my loved ones, taking chlorella and getting saunas has made me feel better and healthier!</p> <h3>Recommended Resources</h3> <p>If you want to know more about weight loss resistance and everything about environmental toxins, I suggest watching the <strong><a href="http://www.learntruehealth.com/ithrive">I Thrive documentary series</a></strong> which I have been promoting on my show in the past episodes.</p> <p>I have a fantastic line-up of guests in the next few days — Dr. Mark Hyman, as well Ryan and Teddy Sternagel of My Kid Cures Cancer. I’ll also have an expert to talk about how to cure depression naturally, a gastroenterologist who discovered a new type of illness, as well as a health coach and fellow podcaster on the show.</p> <p>Other episodes will tackle topics like how to create a healthy boundary for yourself and workplace, and how to heal emotionally from food.

234 The Worlds Most Powerful Superfood For Healing, Detoxification, and Energy, IBS, Chrons Disease, Algae, Chlorella, Spirulina, Cancer, Heavy Metals, with the Founder of EnergyBits Catharine Arnston and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Detailed Show Notes Coming Soon!<br /></span></strong></p> <p>For Learn True Health Listeners:</p> <p>Get 20% off EnergyBits by using coupon code: LTH</p> <p> Visit EnergyBits.com</p> <p><a href="EnergyBits.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">http://EnergyBits.com</a></p> <p> </p> <h2><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Algae </strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/algae/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/algae/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Algae is considered a superfood because it is not processed and is packed with minerals, vitamins, and amino acids.  It also has antioxidants which are why my guest today, Catharine Arnston is such a strong advocate for educating people about the benefits of algae.</p> <h3>Discovering Algae</h3> <p>Catharine Arnston is Canadian but currently lives in the United States. She discovered the benefits of algae when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer ten years ago.</p> <p>Upon the advice of her sister’s oncologist, Catharine Arnston’s sister had to change to an alkaline diet to help her healing. So her diet was primarily green tea, green vegetables and had to eliminate acidic foods.</p> <p>Fast forward a decade later, Catharine Arnston’s sister celebrated ten years free of cancer this year. This whole experience made Catharine Arnston decide to give up her corporate career of 25 years to help people.</p> <h3>Making A Difference</h3> <p>Catharine Arnston eventually pursued further studies at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition. After graduation, she put up a nutrition counseling company wherein she offered a curriculum teaching people how to eat healthy greens. Catharine Arnston also gave free workshops for corporations and hospitals for almost a year, trying to convince people to eat more greens.</p> <p>Catharine Arnston primary goal was to find a hassle-free way for people to digest more greens. During her research in 2010, she suddenly thought of algae tablets. Surveys showed that her friends were willing to take algae tablets, so the venture looked very promising. </p> <h3>Origin Of Algae</h3> <p>According to Catharine Arnston, algae has been used for hundreds of years. Documented for approximately the past 50 years, it is the most studied food in the world and has been known to improve health aspects of mental acuity and athletic performance.</p> <p>“Algae is the very first plant life on earth three and a half billion years ago and they have fossils to prove it. It has been around three or four years longer than we have,” said Catharine Arnston. “So there’s got to be something special about something on earth that has existed four times longer than we have. That’s why I feel blessed to be to one to explain to people the importance of algae.”</p> <h3>Quality Of Products</h3> <p>The algae that Catharine Arnston uses for her products is grown in Taiwan. Taiwan is world-renowned to have the highest quality algae and the highest quality controls in place because it is such a significant crop. All the other algae are grown in Japan, China, India, and a small amount in Hawaii.</p> <p>Apparently, algae have different attributes, flavors, and components like wine. Catharine Arnston says that the water they use for their products comes from a mountain. She also assures that their water is very clean since it is triple-filtered.</p> <p>“The company that is growing algae for us has been growing algae for 50 years. They have a GMP certification, an ISO 9000 certification, and is certified organic,” said Catharine Arnston. “The company has an Asian certification. Getting U.S. certification is complicated because it is not in America. We also have a 3rd party FDA lab here in the United States, where we test every batch.”</p> <p>Catharine Arnston proudly adds that they are by far, the only algae in America that are endorsed by doctors. Laboratory tests that show there is no metal and pesticides in Catharine Arnston’s ENERGYbits products. They are also the only company wherein the Chlorella products contain no lead.</p> <h3>Competitive Industry</h3> <p>Catharine Arnston attests that algae products are a multi-billion dollar industry in Asia. She says it is almost as big as the beef industry in the United States. But in making algae products mainstream, people have misconceptions about what algae are.</p> <p>“Nobody knows about it because it is food. It’s no different than broccoli. Biotech and pharma companies were interested in promoting algae because there’s no patent. You can’t patent broccoli or algae because it is just a vegetable,” said Catharine Arnston.</p> <p>Catharine Arnston further reveals that the companies selling algae in the United States tend to be just the same as the companies selling algae in Asia. Apparently, only the packaging is different.</p> <p>“Most of the product comes from China, and there’s insufficient quality control. So nobody knew for sure what they’re putting in their bodies. And to think they’re supposed to be taking this to improve their health,” Catharine Arnston said. </p> <p>She adds,”Most chlorella products contain lead but not ours. There’s great uncertainty on who to trust. I had to be sure ours is the highest quality. So I started this journey after helping my sister.”</p> <p>Catharine Arnston also shares that the statistics of cancer and heart disease show that 98% of chronic illnesses are lifestyle and diet-related. That is why she is trying to help people understand how to be healthy, using the gifts from Mother Nature. Catharine Arnston’s goal is also to teach people how to differentiate the different kinds of algae, which ones are good for us and which algae to use for different purposes.</p> <h3>Spirulina Algae</h3> <p>There are about 15 strains of algae, and it is part of the seaweed family. But seaweed is grown in the ocean and does not have the same nutrients. In a category called algae, the only two that are produced as crops are spirulina and chlorella.</p> <p>Spirulina is known as the earth’s very first plant life. It is a blue-green algae wherein the blue color comes from a pigment called phycocyanin.</p> <p>“The blue pigment has incredible healing properties. One of which is that it stops cancer. It stops the growth of blood vessels to tumors or cancers and is called anti-angiogenesis,” explains Catharine Arnston. “Angiogenesis is when blood vessels are grown to support a tumor or cancer.”</p> <p>She adds,”There are certain foods and different things that have anti-angiogenesis properties that stop the growth of blood vessels. And the blue phycocyanin in spirulina is one of those things.” </p> <h3>Benefits Of Spirulina</h3> <p>Catharine Arnston says we 99.9% can get all the protein within 15 minutes and literally within seconds if we chew spirulina. This is because all the protein in Spirulina is already in an amino acid form. And because there is nothing left for our body to break it down, it is instantly absorbable because it is technically a bacteria.</p> <p>“Spirulina is not a detoxifier. It is a cleanser. In Japan, when babies are born, they cannot digest mothers milk and would die otherwise. The only thing that keeps them alive is spirulina in water,” shares Catharine Arnston. “During my research, I looked at the nutrient profile and the amino acid profile of mother’s milk colostrum. It has the same nutrient profile as spirulina.”</p> <h3>Chlorella</h3> <p>On the other hand, chlorella does not have the blue pigment. It is a plant that contains the highest chlorophyll in the world. Chlorophyll is good for cleansing and it is also very healing. </p> <p>“Most pigments and antioxidants are water-based. Chlorophyll is one of the few fat-based pigments and antioxidants,” Catharine Arnston said. “Our cells need fat. That’s what Omega 3 does. It helps heal the cell. So now, nutrients can easily flow into the cell, and toxins can easily flow out of the cell. That’s one of the benefits of chlorophyll.” </p> <p>She adds, “It aids the health of the cell. If the cell wall and cells are healthy, the immune system will be healthy, and the mitochondria will be healthy. Everything will work a lot better.”</p> <p>Catharine Arnston also says only 10% chlorophyll gets absorbed in the stomach. The rest of the Chlorophyll stays in our gut and moves into our entire digestive tract, through the liver, and down our colon. It cleans up garbage in our body as it goes along and heals all the cell walls.</p> <h3>Importance of Vitamin K2</h3> <p>Most heart attacks and heart diseases are not caused by cholesterol. According to Catharine Arnston, it is caused by inflammation and hardening of the arteries because of too much calcium in arteries.</p> <p>“The arteries become brittle and not flexible. In effect, blood can’t flow and can cause high blood pressure. And the only thing that pulls this excess calcium out is vitamin K2,” said Catharine Arnston. “The only place you can get vitamin k2 is either grass-fed animal protein, fermented foods, and chlorella. If you take vitamin K2, your body will take out all that excess calcium that’s hardening your arteries and moves into your bones or teeth.”</p> <p>I can vouch for what Catharine Arnston said. <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">I had Dr. Carolyn Dean on episode 227 of my show</a></strong> recently, and she said that our body does need vitamin K2 and magnesium. This is to help deposit calcium and other minerals into our bones.</p> <p>Another excellent reference was Dr. Weston A. Price’s discovery a long time ago. In his research, Dr. Weston A. Price discovered indigenous cultures had great teeth good healthy bacteria in their mouths because vitamin K2 was plentiful in their gut and diet.</p> <p>For added reference on chlorella, I’m inviting my listeners to<strong> <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">check out my interview with Dr. Dietrich Kinghardt on episode 218</a>.</strong> </p> <h3>Energybits Products</h3> <p>Catharine Arnston has a fantastic line of products called ENERGYbits, RECOVERYbits, SKINNYbits, and VITALITYbits.

But in 2009 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist to change her diet to an alkaline one because it would help her heal, Catharine Arnston put her career on hold to help her sister.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>In the process, she discovered algae, the most alkaline, nutrient-dense plant in the world that no one seemed to know about. Catharine Arnston knew algae would be a game changer for the world if she could just help Americans understand it. Because of that, ENERGYbits was born.</em></p> <h3><strong>Get Connected With Catharine Arnston:</strong></h3> <p><strong><a href="https://www.energybits.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.facebook.com/energybits" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.twitter.com/energybits" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.instagram.com/energybits" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://linkedin.com/in/catharinearnston" target="_blank" rel="noopener">LinkedIn</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Books By Catharine Arnston</h3> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2tjX7SK" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Wheat Belly</strong></a> <strong>by Dr. William Davis</strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1609614798&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1609614798" alt="" /> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2Fk8iw2" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Grain Brain </a>by Dr. David Perlmutter</strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0316319198&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0316319198" alt="" /> <p> </p> <h3>Recommended Links:</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/">Learn True Health – Episode 218</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/magnesium/">Learn True Health – Episode 227</a></strong></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Support Us on Patreon & <strong>Join the Learn True Health Book Club</strong>!!!

Robby Barbaro, my guest today, attests that the risks are lower and it has been proven effective.</p> <p>I found Robby Barbaro because of the 9-day I Thrive series. I highly recommend watching the series because it has 55 doctors and experts, who talk about reversing diabetes and heart disease, as well as tips on how to lose weight. For more information, link to <strong><a href= "http://www.learntruehealth.com/ithrive">www.learntruehealth.com/ithrive</a></strong>.</p> <h3>Diagnosed With Type 1 Diabetes</h3> <p>Robby Barbaro’s journey to reversing diabetes started when he was first diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 12 years old. He’s 29 years old now, so it has been 17 years since he has been living with diabetes.</p> <p>Incidentally, it was Robby Barbaro’s older brother who was first diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Soon after, Robby Barbaro complained that he noticed being thirsty with the urge to urinate all the time.  Upon checking his sugar levels with his brother’s glucometer, it was well over 400 which was not a good sign.</p> <p>Going to the doctor to get an official diagnosis, Robby Barbaro went through tests to measure his carbs and insulin intake.  And because he lived in Minnesota that time, they had the tests done at the world-famous Mayo Clinic.</p> <p>Tests confirmed he had Type 1 diabetes. Looking back, Robby Barbaro recalls it was unusual that such a famous clinic didn’t tell him that nutrition could help in reversing diabetes.  </p> <h3>Diet Shift</h3> <p>Robby Barbaro was a competitive tennis player. He says the sport helped keep his Type 1 diabetes under control. In addition to that, he eventually made some dietary changes and took supplements.</p> <p>But what changed his whole perception in reversing diabetes is when he moved to Florida and chanced upon a book that he saw at Barnes and Noble. Kevin Trudeau’s Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About book was popular that time. According to Robby Barbaro, the book contained one sentence that planted a seed in his mind that he could use nutrition in reversing diabetes.</p> <h3>Typical Diet</h3> <p>“I’ve been eating nothing but fruits and veggies for 11 years. Not cooked but rather raw and low fat, plant-based whole foods,” said Robby Barbaro. “Then I came across the Weston A. Price foundation which is a step in right direction.”</p> <p>Eventually, Robby Barbaro learned not to eat processed foods and was eating grass-fed beef. During college, he was also a part of a website community discussing diets when somebody suggested watching this animal rights movie. That movie had a significant impact on Robby Barbaro.</p> <p>“That’s how I got to the plant-based world. I started a coaching program wherein the first week was eating purely bananas. It was a profound experience,” shares Robby Barbaro. </p> <p>He adds, “I was floored by my insulin sensitivity just by eating bananas. Then I began to adopt a low-fat diet. The next week I had bananas and lettuce. It was the beginning of a plant based-diet.”</p> <p>Robby Barbaro reveals that eating a plant-based diet doesn’t deprive you of nutrients. He gets his calories and energy from fruit and minerals from greens and non-starchy vegetables like zucchini, carrots, arugula and many more. He has also erased gluten from his diet.</p> <p>“I felt good, my skin cleared, and allergies are gone. Every time you eat well, you are nourishing every single cell,” Robby Barbaro said. </p> <h3>Importance Of Insulin</h3> <p>Robby Barbaro and his Mastering Diabetes coaching partner Cyrus Khambatta both have Type 1 diabetes, and insulin is what keeps them alive. According to Robby Barbaro, the whole teaching point of insulin not being the enemy is something essential to the Mastering Diabetes program.</p> <p>My grandmother passed away at the age of 77 in 1987. Incidentally, she also had Type 1 diabetes. And from what I heard, she was one of the earlier receivers of insulin when they were first creating it. Her diet was primarily steamed vegetables, but she made sure to collect the juice and drink it since all the minerals were in there.</p> <p>“We have made a lot of progress in treating Type 1 diabetes. Today we have glucose monitors, the needles are smaller, and it’s an overall more sanitary experience,” said Robby Barbaro.</p> <h3>Insulin Resistance</h3> <p>Robby Barbaro says that the cause of pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance. But for people with Type 1 diabetes, insulin resistance is still a significant factor even if it is not the cause of their condition. </p> <p>“Insulin resistance is the precursor to so many other conditions. The number one killer of all people living with diabetes is heart disease. So it’s vital to optimize one’s insulin sensitivity,” said Robby Barbaro.</p> <p>And how do we know if we’re insulin insensitive? With Type 1 diabetes, it is very easy to assess that. The following determining factors are:</p> <ul> <li>How many units of insulin we’re injecting</li> <li>Total carb consumption</li> <li>Blood glucose testing </li> </ul> <h3>Difference Between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes</h3> <p>Robby Barbaro explains that for Type 1 diabetes, you have to make sure you are injecting about the same amount of insulin your pancreas would have normally secreted before it stopped producing its insulin.</p> <p>“The key thing is to get to the appropriate amount.  The general ballpark number is measured by taking your weight, which is about .6 per kilogram of body weight. That’s a good place to be. If you’re more active, you can get closer to .3 or .4 units,” Robby Barbaro said.</p> <p>As for those with Type 2 diabetes and taking no medication, Robby Barbaro suggests looking at your fasting blood glucose number. You also have to know the total carb intake you’re consuming. </p> <p>“So if you have 200 to 300 carbs per day and your blood glucose is in range, then that’s a good sign that your body is insulin sensitive. Anything opposite that is a sign that you’re becoming pre-diabetic,” said Robby Barbaro.</p> <h3>Testing Yourself</h3> <p>The best way to check your sugar levels is by using a glucometer. Ideally, you should do the test upon waking up and provided you have not eaten for the past 12 hours.</p> <p>“A level between 70 to 99 is good. If you are 100 to 126, that’s pre-diabetic. And anything that’s 127 and above is a full-on diabetic,” said Robby Barbaro.</p> <p>Robby Barbaro also reveals that the biggest problem is the food that people are eating. Because eating more meats and dairy is not suitable for long-term health.</p> <p>“When your blood glucose is out of control, it has a dramatic impact on our mood, behavior and also on our mental clarity. But it is all the more motivation and reason to fix it,” said Robby Barbaro.</p> <h3>Coaching Program</h3> <p>Mastering Diabetes is a program wherein Robby Barbaro and his partner Cyrus Khambatta teach people how to minimize and eliminate medication. But Robby Barbaro also makes it clear that they have a lot of respect for doctors. And aren’t against doctors or the pharma industry in some respect.</p> <p>Robby Barbaro offers group and private coaching.  To reach out to more people, the programs are now offered at a more affordable rate of $29 per month. He is proud to share that they have seen many success stories in as fast as four days by just altering diets.</p> <p>For people suffering from Type 1 diabetes, there’s a significant difference of 40 to 60% in four days.  Some people with Type 2 diabetes have even stopped the medication. The diet is served buffet style and is primarily steamed vegetables. </p> <p>“The worse thing that can happen is taking too much medication, and we have a team of trained professionals to monitor each person’s progress,” said Robby Barbaro.</p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Robby Barbaro is the co-founder of Mastering Diabetes and the founder of Mindful Diabetic. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 12 and embraced a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet four years after my diagnosis.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>To this day, adopting this lifestyle has been one of the best decisions of his life, and since that fateful day, Robby Barbaro’s hemoglobin A1c value has never exceeded 6.4%. Robby Barbaro graduated from the University of Florida in 2011 and worked at Forks Over Knives for six years before turning his attention to coaching people with diabetes full time.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Robby Barbaro enjoys exercising every day, spending time with friends and sharing his lifestyle on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Helping people with diabetes has gone from a desire to a true passion, and he loves inspiring others to achieve excellent health.</em></p> <h3>Get Connected With Robby Barbaro:</h3> <p><strong><a href="https://www.masteringdiabetes.org/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/masteringdiabetes.org" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.instagram.com/masteringdiabetes/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram – Mastering Diabetes</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.instagram.com/mindfuldiabeticrobby/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram – Mindful Diabetic</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/user/mindfuldiabeticrobby" target="_blank" rel="noopener">YouTube</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Reading by Robby Barbaro</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2FPd1Hj" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Forks Over Knives Plan</a> by Alona Pulde M.D.</strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=147675330X&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=147675330X" alt="" /> <h3>Recommended Links:</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.learntruehealth.com/ithrive">I Thrive</a></strong></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Support Us on Patreon & <strong>Join the Learn True Health Book Club</strong>!!!

Most people resort to medication but my guest today, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, will teach us how to reverse heart disease through diet. In fact, he has the longest running track record for success.</p> <h3>Early Years</h3> <p>Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn was a Yale undergraduate and went to medical school at the Western Reserve University.  He took an internship at the Cleveland Clinic and decided to go into General Surgery. He has been associated with the Cleveland Clinic since 1968. He has also published the most amount of studies over the past 12 years with remarkable results.</p> <p>After his training, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn went to become an Army surgeon two years after. From the training in Vietnam, he was offered a position in the Department of General Surgery in the Cleveland Clinic.</p> <h3>Career Shift</h3> <p>Halfway through his stint at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn felt increasingly disillusioned. I was doing a lot of surgeries connected with breast cancer and yet he thought he was doing absolutely nothing to the next unsuspecting victims.</p> <p>“That led me through a bit of global research. In rural Japan in the 1950s, breast cancer was infrequently identified. In the entire nation of Japan in the late 50s, cardiovascular disease was virtually non-existent,” shares Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.  </p> <h3>Twelve-Year Study On Heart Disease</h3> <p>Shortly after, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn embarked on extensive research on everything there is to know about heart disease and how to prevent and reverse it. It was a long process, but ultimately, the study produced significant results on how we can reverse it naturally through diet.</p> <p>“I was active as a surgeon, and I was not a trained psychologist. For the first five years,  I saw every one of these patients every two weeks,” Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn said. “We checked their weight and blood pressure. We saw significant progress. They lost weight, symptoms disappeared, and we reversed the disease.”</p> <h3>Significant Findings</h3> <p>The study confirmed that coronary artery disease is the leading killer in the United States. But it is rarely found in cultures whose diet primarily include lentils, grains, vegetables, fruit, and legumes. This is why Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn recommends a similar diet to his patients.</p> <p>“The diet I chose was extracted from those nations where the disease is virtually non-existent like Okinawa in Japan, Euro-China, New Guinea, Central Africa and Northern Mexico. Those countries don’t have the cardiovascular disease because they thrive on whole foods nutrition,” said Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.</p> <p>Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn also says that many experts have agreed that heart disease does not primarily originate from genes nor stress, but rather from nutrition. During the five-year mark of the study, patients who followed a plant-based diet with 10% fat and taking cholesterol-lowering medication showed excellent results. Lipid levels fell, symptoms lessened, and tests showed that their heart disease became stabilized. Some cases even showed a reverse from heart disease.</p> <h3>Revision In Diet</h3> <p>When you have heart disease, it also injures the endothelial lining of the arteries. It turns out that food containing oils, dairy, fish, meat, chicken, sugar, and caffeine deplete mechanisms that protect the endothelium.</p> <p>Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn also says that the typical Western diet also decreases the production of nitric oxide.  Nitric oxide is an essential part of the equation because it protects our blood vessels. </p> <p>“We have to have a safe and adequate amount of nitric oxide because it protects the wall of the arteries. It protects us from developing high blood pressure and hypertension as well as blockages or plaques,” said Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.</p> <h3>Success Rate</h3> <p>Upon hitting the 12-year mark of the study, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn shares that he has gathered enough data to prove that changing to the right kind of diet works. Patients were asked to eliminate oil, dairy products, and all types of meat including chicken and fish.</p> <p>A lot of patients went back to standard care or entirely did not need medication. The results of the study showed that arrest and reversal therapy stops coronary atherosclerosis. By complementing a plant-based diet with medication, it achieves better results than changing only the diet or combining modest diet changes and medication.</p> <h3>Recommended Diet</h3> <p>First of all, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn recommends cutting out oils and animal products from your diet. He says oils amount to 120 calories per tablespoon and it’s just fat with no mineral and no fiber. Plus, he says fat destroys the endothelium.</p> <p>“I recommend my patients eat green leafy vegetables six times a day. The amount of vegetables is approximately the size of their fist,” recommends Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. “Then add balsamic vinegar because it has acetic acid. It restores cells responsible for making nitric oxide.” </p> <h3>Among the vegetables that Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn recommends are:</h3> <ul> <li>Bok Choy</li> <li>Swiss Chard</li> <li>Kale</li> <li>Collard Greens</li> <li>Beet Greens</li> <li>Mustard Greens</li> <li>Turnip Green</li> <li>Napa Cabbage</li> <li>Brussels Sprouts</li> <li>Broccoli</li> <li>Cauliflower</li> <li>Cilantro</li> <li>Parsley</li> <li>Spinach</li> <li>Arugula</li> <li>Asparagus</li> </ul> <p>He also cautions against taking sugar like Stevia. Apparently, Stevia affects receptors in the brain.</p> <p>“Eating fruits is okay but not fruit juice. In real fruit, you get fiber. When you separate the juice, the fiber separates from the sugar,” said. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. “I also recommend flax and chia seeds be included in your diet.”</p> <h3>Prevent & Reverse Cookbook</h3> <p>Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s staple diet includes oatmeal, raisins, bananas, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. His lunch and dinner would be anything from soups to beans and rice, grains, and vegetables.</p> <p>For those who would want to try his recommended recipes, I suggest getting his <strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2FIw9Xp" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Prevent & Reverse cookbook</a></strong> which is available on his website.  Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn proudly reveals that his diet program is beneficial to everyone regardless of age. In fact, his oldest patient is 95 years old!</p> <p>“The most severe, strict and extreme diet on the planet today is the one that 97% of Americans are eating every day. That diet is going to guarantee that before they perish, they would have some hideous chronic illness,” said Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. </p> <h3>Additional Resources</h3> <p>My father died from heart disease, so this subject is close to my heart. For those who want to know more about heart disease, do check out a couple of my past episodes. </p> <p>I guested <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/dr-jack-wolfson/">Dr. Jack Wolfson on episode 101</a></strong>.  In the episodes, he talks about how he saw many patients suffering from heart disease and introduced them to natural medicine.

231 How To Be Healthy Without Willpower, Food Addiction, Overeating, Binging, Obesity, Weight loss, with Ph.D. Psychologist Glenn Livingston and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p> <a href= "http://www.NeverBingeAgain.com">http://www.NeverBingeAgain.com</a></p> <div class="_2TO-components-SimpleRichTextEditor--paragraphElement" data-block="true" data-editor="1g115" data-offset-key="a23hj-0-0"> <div class= "public-DraftStyleDefault-block public-DraftStyleDefault-ltr" data-offset-key="a23hj-0-0"> </div> <div class= "public-DraftStyleDefault-block public-DraftStyleDefault-ltr" data-offset-key="a23hj-0-0"> <h2><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Willpower </strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/willpower-stop-bingeing/"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/willpower-stop-bingeing/</strong></a></span></p> <p>Willpower to stop bingeing is something a lot of people struggle with.  Whether you plan to eat healthily or currently maintaining your weight, having the willpower to stay on track is a continuous effort. I’m thrilled that my guest, Dr. Glenn Livingston, is back on the show to teach us how to make sure we maintain the willpower to stop overeating.</p> <h3>Former Binge Eater</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston talked extensively about <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/dr-glenn-livingston-end-binge-eating/">how to stop bingeing on episode 56 of the Learn True Health</a></strong>.  He gave a lot of tips in that episode, so I suggest everyone check it out.</p> <p>For those who have not heard the initial guesting of Dr. Glenn Livingston on my show, you’d be surprised that he was a former binge eater himself. He struggled throughout his younger years when he went to graduate school until he got married.</p> <p>He found it had to exercise to career demands and so his metabolism went down.  Having the willpower to stop eating just didn’t seem possible.</p> <h3>Family Of Psychologists</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston comes from a family of psychologists, so he felt it was essential to follow the same path. Seventeen family therapists to be exact!</p> <p>When he got divorced years ago, Dr. Glenn Livingston was admittedly unhappy about that. He sought advice from his mother who was also a psychotherapist. That’s when he was able to trace his bingeing, particularly his love for chocolate.</p> <p>Apparently, because of Dr. Glenn Livingston’s family situation when he was young, he was drawn to chocolate early on and was never really strictly regulated from eating it. That, according to Dr. Glenn Livingston, was the match that lit the fire.</p> <h3>Finding The Connection</h3> <p>Now that he knew the probable cause of his lack of willpower to stop bingeing, Dr. Glenn Livingston went to psychologists, psychiatrists, and even Overeaters Anonymous to research more about bingeing. He also funded a 40,000-person study between the late 90s and early 2000s.</p> <p>“I got all of these people to take a survey about the food they were bingeing on, their lifestyle, personalities, and digging what the connection was. Then I realized that maybe it was because there was no self-love,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston.</p> <p>In that study, Dr. Glenn Livingston found out that people who overeat on chocolate tend to be lonely. People who had trouble with crunchy, salty things were usually stressed at work. And people who were drawn to eating soft, chewy stuff like bagels and pasta, tend to be stressed at home.</p> <p>“The emotional conversation with my mom led me to believe that I would be cured. I was able to forgive myself,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “I forgave my mom, and we became closer. And I feel I became a more soulful person.” </p> <h3>Justifying Emotional Discomfort</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston was able to come to terms that his bingeing originated from a time in his life where his mother did not regulate him from overeating. But his bingeing still didn’t stop. In fact, he found it as a justification to eat even more.</p> <p>“If you have a fire that’s out of control, there are two strategies that you can use. You can try to put out the fire, or you can build a fireplace,” Dr. Glenn Livingston said. “A lot of people won’t have that emotional discomfort in order not to binge. I find that it helps a little, but it doesn’t work that well.” </p> <p>He adds, “What works better is intervening at the level of that crazy food demon. Learn how to have clarity about how you want food to play in your life and make decisions about food ahead of time.”</p> <h3>Understanding Willpower</h3> <p>Dr. Glenn Livingston says willpower is a fatigable muscle. And there are only so many right decisions we can make on any given day. This fact has been proven in so many medical studies.</p> <p>“If you tax people mentally with math problems, they have more trouble resisting a marshmallow before and after the math problem,” explains Dr. Glenn Livingston. “Every decision you’re making is taxing the willpower. And that’s why people start the morning with the best intentions, then overeat at the end of the day.”</p> <p>Furthermore, Dr. Glenn Livingston says that knowing we’re not targeting a loving part of the brain, addiction, on the other hand, targets a very aggressive part of the brain. Now the problem is, once we justify something like eating a chocolate bar, we are opening ourselves up to our lizard brain. </p> <h3>Lizard Brain</h3> <p>The lizard brain has the eat, mate or kills mindset.  There is no love. Plus, addiction targets the lizard brain.</p> <p>“You’re trying to nurture that part of you that’s having the craving. But the part of you that’s having the craving, isn’t this nurturing creature,” explains Dr. Glenn Livingston. “It’s no more part of your human identity than your testicles or ovaries are. They can generate urges, but it’s what you do with those urges that form your character, decisions, and way of eating.”</p> <h3>Developing Willpower</h3> <p>First of all, Dr. Glenn Livingston says we need clarity about what healthy food was and what it wasn’t. Focus and be clear about the kind of person you want to be around that food and make a clear commitment to be that person.<strong> </strong></p> <p>“Just for the moment, put aside the moment that you can’t do it. And imagine what if you did and how would your life be better,” Dr. Glenn Livingston advises. “Go into detail about the specifics of that future. We call this the ‘big why.'”</p> <p>The ‘big why’ can be anything from wanting to lose weight, eating clean, have clearer skin, have more energy for work, be free from food obsession or wanting clothes to fit better.  Some other reasons for developing the willpower to stop overeating is to be able to socialize or become a better role model for others. </p> <p>“When your inner brat says you can’t do this because you’re deprived, think about what you are depriving yourself of, by you eating junk foods,” said Dr. Glenn Livingston. “It’s never a matter of whether you’re deprived or not. Either you’re going to deprive yourself of immediate pleasure, or you’re going to deprive yourself of the big future that you are looking for.” </p> <p>He adds, “So what you want to do is make sure that you know both sides of that deprivation equation and make a decision.” </p> <h3>Get High On Food</h3> <p>Bottomline, Dr. Glenn Livingston recommends that people learn to get high with foods instead of being addicted to something unhealthy. He says it’s beneficial if people shift paradigms by learning the art of focusing and clarity.</p> <p>If you’re set on getting on that road to health or need an added push, I suggest looking into Dr. Glenn Livingston’s programs. He offers individual and group programs which have produced a lot of success stories.</p> <p>For added information on anything about how to stop overeating, do check out Dr. Glenn Livingston’s Never Binge Again podcast as well.</p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long-time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>His previous work, theories, and research have been published in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, and American Demographics.  He has also guested on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Glenn Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.</em><em> </em></p> <h3>Get Connected with Dr. Glenn Livingston:</h3> <p><strong><a href="https://neverbingeagain.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://neverbingeagain.com/index.php/main/readerbonuses" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Free Book</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.fixyourfoodproblem.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Fix Your Problem</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/NeverBingeAgain/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.instagram.com/livingstonglenn/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.neverbingeagain.com/TheBlog/podcast-2/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Never Binge Again Podcast</a></strong></p> <h3>Book by Dr. Glenn Livingston:</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2FyYWgX" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Never Binge Again</a></strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=151516294X&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=151516294X" alt="" /> <p> </p> <h3>Recommended Reading by Dr. Glenn Livingston:</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2BR8jJ1" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Rational Recovery</a> by Jack Trimpey</strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0671528580&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0671528580" alt="" /> <p> </p> <h3>Recommended Links:</h3> <p><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/dr-glenn-livingston-end-binge-eating/">Learn True Health – Episode 56</a></strong></p> </div> <div class= "public-DraftStyleDefault-block public-DraftStyleDefault-ltr" data-offset-key="a23hj-0-0"> </div> </div> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Support Us on Patreon & <strong>Join the Learn True Health Book Club</strong>!!!

According to my guest today, Dr. Alan Goldhamer, fasting is safe and effective when done right. So read on to learn everything you need to know about this healing method.   </p> <h3>Discovering Fasting  </h3> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer recalls that when he was in 4th grade, his best friend Doug always beat him in basketball.  He wanted to get healthier to beat his best friend, and he happened to find a book about fasting by Herbert Shelton.  </p> <p>Herbert Shelton was  American author, naturopath, alternative medicine advocate, pacifist, and vegetarian. He was also a supporter of and fasting. But Dr. Alan Goldhamer still failed in beating Doug despite his efforts to fast and adopt a plant-based diet. Because apparently, his best friend Doug took the same program. </p> <h3>Pursuing A Medical Degree  </h3> <p>As Dr. Alan Goldhamer got older, he met a chiropractor when he was 16 years old. That chiropractor said he had the best job in the world. He further explained that it's because the body did all the healing, the patient did all the work, and all he had to do was take credit for the good results. Since then, Dr. Alan Goldhamer decided that pursuing a medical degree was his calling.  </p> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer eventually went to a chiropractic school in Oregon. But he says it didn't give him the background that he wanted, which was to be able to take on certain kinds of treatments and specific conditions.   </p> <p>Due to his desire to learn more, Dr. Alan Goldhamer, later on, went to Pacific College of Osteopathic Medicine in Australia. He did his residency there and worked with hundreds of patients who kept getting well.  </p> <h3>TrueNorth Health Center  </h3> <p>In 1984, Dr. Alan Goldhamer felt it was time to go back to the United States with his wife who is also a doctor. Together they opened the TrueNorth Health Center. Fast forward today, it's been 33 years since they have been helping people recover their health using diet and lifestyle modification.   </p> <p>He shares that usually when people have diabetes, heart conditions or autoimmune disease, their physician will usually recommend taking 1 to 5 drugs. If you do exactly as you were told, Dr. Alan Goldhamer says those doctors will guarantee you'll never get well. According to him, that's the promise of conventional treatments for health conditions.  </p> <h3>Track Record  </h3> <p>"We have a program that ends the disease. But only if you also eat well, exercise and go to bed on time," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer. "Our alternative approach can get you healthy enough to eliminate the need for medications."  </p> <p>Most of Dr. Alan Goldhamer's patients were entirely able to remove medications by eliminating the reason why they needed the medication. Dr. Alan Goldhamer says it's really because of a management strategy towards healthy living.  </p> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer's patients who have diabetes, autoimmune disease, cancer, obesity and metabolic syndrome have benefited from fasting. The TrueNorth Health Center has also dealt with patients suffering from kidney diseases, although their fasting program is modified.  </p> <p>Furthermore, Dr. Alan Goldhamer also reveals that his team has done a fasting safety study. Hence, they assure everyone that fasting is safe as long as you follow the appropriate protocols.   </p> <p>In Dr. Alan Goldhamer's center, patients are appropriately screened and then undergo a physical exam, lab assessment, and monitoring. The center's patients are also seen twice a day by the center's staff of doctors wherein they evaluate every patient's clinical presentation.  </p> <p>"We had 174 consecutive patients who underwent fasting, and we have seen a wide variety of conditions," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  </p> <h3>What Is Fasting?  </h3> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer says that fasting has been around for a long time. Virtually most religious traditions recognize it as an essential component for a good reason.   </p> <p>"Fasting is a biological adaptation. If it weren't for fasting and the ability to fast, our species could not have done what we have done, which is wandering away from the tropics," Dr. Alan Goldhamer said.  </p> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer also reveals that because of the biological adaptation of fasting, human beings can go up to 70 days without eating. This is because our brain has changed from burning glucose to fat. So if you didn't burn fat, we would have to break our proteins down to provide glucose. And after a period, we would eventually die.  </p> <p>"We are capable of doing fasting. And at our TrueNorth Health Center, we have water fasting programs from 5 to 40 days. But we do not make our patients do fasting any longer than necessary to get the problem solved," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  </p> <h3>The Truth About Salt  </h3> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer says sodium is an essential nutrient without which we die. He says it is such a critical nutrient that our body is designed to detect it in minimal quantities. In fact, when you can taste natural sodium, you know that particular food is healthy for you.  </p> <p>"Salt tells you vegetables are good. But when you concentrate it, it artificially stimulates the dopamine production in the brain, and that leads to overeating. That's why people are fat and sick cause they eat salt or sugar," explains Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  </p> <p>Furthermore, Dr. Alan Goldhamer says salt has a whole bunch of problems when it is introduced in high concentration. Typically we'd be getting about have a milligram of sodium per calorie. But Dr. Alan Goldhamer says people in our culture are often eating 2 to 5 milligrams of sodium per calorie or even more.   </p> <p>"When we put salt in the food, the body has to hold fluid to neutralize and compensate for it. That's why blood pressure goes up. And it is also why many people aged 65 or older have hypertension," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  </p> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer also shares that salt also helps us get fat. Salt makes us eat more before we feel satisfied. And there's a lot of physiological consequences of excess sodium.   </p> <h3>Among the physical effects of salt include:  </h3> <ol> <li>Fluid retention</li> <li>Joint pains</li> <li>Edema</li> <li>Swelling</li> <li>Non-healing of wounds </li> <li>Congestive heart failure</li> <li>Respiratory issues </li> </ol> <p>"Avoid added salt. Get all the salt you need by eating whole plant foods, seeds, nuts, and fruits. You don't have to add highly processed foods which are full of chemicals," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  </p> <h3>GMO  </h3> <p>In <strong><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/gmo/">episode 133 of the Learn True Health</a></strong>, Jeffrey Smith was my guest.  He is the creator of anti-GMO documentaries and GMO awareness.   </p> <p>Jeffery Smith discussed that there was a study in Canada. The study found that eating GMO foods, specifically B2 corn, created the B2 toxin which explodes the stomach of insects. They discovered that when we eat that type of corn, GMO genes get into the bacteria of the gut.   </p> <p>Over time, the gut started creating the B2 toxin inside of people. Even if they no longer eat corn, their body was still very concentrated with the B2 toxin.   </p> <p>"We have to figure out how to make plants more resistant to chemicals produced by companies. A great way to reset is through fasting and whole foods plant diet. Only then will clinical symptoms begin to improve," Dr. Alan Goldhamer said.  </p> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer also shares that his team just completed a study with their colleague, Luigi Fontana at Washington University. For the first time, they looked at the microbiome before and after fasting. They are already done with sample collection and data is currently being processed.  </p> <h3>Dr. Alan Goldhamer's Diet  </h3> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer usually eats any of the following for breakfast: fresh fruit, leafy greens like lettuce, cucumber, and celery. Sometimes he alternates between oatmeal, cornmeal, nuts or seeds.   </p> <p>For lunch or dinner, he usually indulges in large salads and steamed vegetables. He pairs it with a serving of complex carbohydrates like potatoes, rice beans, sweet potato, and squash. If he goes hungry between mealtimes, he usually satisfies his hunger pangs with another salad.  </p> <p>Ideally, the diet has to be very nutrient-rich and low density. Dr. Alan Goldhamer stresses that whether raw or cooked, he is more concerned about what his patients are eating rather than how they are preparing it.   </p> <h3>Best Diet Choices  </h3> <p>Dr. Alan Goldhamer believes that raw foods and vegetables are not always possible to get enough total calories in, without overdoing the sugar or the fat. He says that it is vital to see sufficient calories in the diet which is 10 to 12% of calories from protein, 5 to 18% from fat, and the balance of complex carbohydrates. </p> <p>As far as juicing is concerned, Dr. Alan Goldhamer believes that it is indeed suitable for people who can't eat whole foods. But he says the best solution to gain optimal health is to eat whole foods.  </p> <p>"We're advocating a whole plant food diet with limited amounts of concentrated high-fat foods," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer. "You also have to eliminate foods like meat, fried foods, eggs, salt, oil, and sugar. It's not about changing the food that you have to worry about but rather changing the palate."  </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Dr. Alan Goldhamer is a graduate of Western States Chiropractic College and the Pacific College of Osteopathic Medicine and for 34 years has been the director of the TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa CA.

229 Fighting For Freedom of Medical Choice, Is Homeopathic Medicine Safe and Effective, FDA, Health Freedom, with The President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice Paola Brown and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p>Save our freedom of choice! Visit and take action:<br /> <a href= "http://HomeopathyChoice.org">http://HomeopathyChoice.org </a></p> <p> </p> <h2><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Homeopathy Choice</strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/homeopathy-choice/"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/homeopathy-choice/</strong></a></span></p> <p>Homeopathy Choice is getting famous as one of the top organizations fighting for the protection of homeopathy. But unfortunately, here in the United States, in particular, there is a serious roadblock that may hamper our freedom to use homeopathy. Today’s guest, Paola Brown will elaborate on her fight to make sure homeopathy is a choice that will always be within reach. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Humble Beginnings<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Paola Brown is a mother of three who lives on a Texas farm with her family.  She was initially an immigrant when her family moved to the United States from Brazil when she was three years old. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>When Paola Brown’s family first moved from Brazil, she recalled that her mother brought a homeopathy kit with her. Her mother knew the family wouldn’t be having regular health insurance since they were a poor immigrant family and her dad was going to school that time.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>When her dad graduated, he eventually got a job shortly after.  Relieved that the family was going to get real medical care, Paola Brown’s mother threw away her homeopathy kit thinking there was no need for alternative methods. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Personal Health Issues<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Fast forward several years later, Paola Brown developed bladder issues. As soon as she got married, she kept having urinary tract infections and had to take a lot of antibiotics. That eventually opened the door to Paola Brown developing autoimmune diseases like chronic bleeding. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Doctors recommended painkillers and even joining a support group for oncoming addiction. Paola Brown, who was only 25 years old that time, was offended by the recommendation. Because of that, the doctor encouraged her to look for other alternatives which led her back to rediscovering homeopathy.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“I searched for a long time and tried a lot of things that made more sense than homeopathy. But I, later on, went back to what my mom used. It 100% cured my health condition,” said Paola Brown.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Paola Brown says that Cantharis 30 or 200 were essential in her bladder healing. She also used Staphysagria 30. Paola Brown also believes that if only had used Staphysagria for honeymoon cysts when she got married, she most likely wouldn’t have to suffer from the chronic bladder condition for years. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Understanding Homeopathy<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Paola Brown explains that homeopathy is a specific paradigm within Natural Medicine. It is commonly found in health food stores. Homeopathy uses ultra-diluted natural substances, but after they are prepared into the homeopathic form, they become entirely non-toxic.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>And that’s so interesting about homeopathy. You can use some poisonous substance, dilute it, and it becomes a homeopathic version of that substance. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“There’s a specific process for the diluted solution. It has to be well done and done by a pharmacy,” explains Paola Brown. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>I am a firm believer in homeopathy. It’s a safe way to treat many health conditions like migraines and fever.  I even use it to treat my son when he has gas, colic pain or teething pains.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Paola Brown says it is not as easy to learn as essential oils. It takes time, effort and energy. But the effort is worth it because it feels almost like magic when you find the right one. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Recommended For Moms<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Paola Brown recommends that moms, in particular, should learn about this specific natural method of healing. She has been teaching homeopathy to moms for several years. And she gained many students, enough to form an organization uplifting the benefits of this natural method.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“We currently have seventy-five volunteers contacting our senators. And we have two main missions,” said Paola Brown. “One is to get the attention of President Donald Trump to talk about the unfair actions on homeopathy of his FDA appointee, Scott Gottlieb and congressmen/women/Senators who sit on the FDA’s oversight committee.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Homeopathy Choice<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>In hoping to gain the attention of the President and decisionmakers, Paola Brown is encouraging the public to help circulate their letter from their Homeopathy Choice website. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“The FDA is currently not issuing any new regulations on homeopathy. They’re not trying to take homeopathy away from us right now literally, so we have to be careful not to make that statement. Because if we make statements that aren’t true, the discussion is over and we lose,” Paola Brown said. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Homeopathy Choice has a scheduled from to Washington, D.C. on February 24 to March 4. Hence, Paola Brown is also inviting people to raise their voices regarding this issue.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>FDA Draft Guidance<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>For those who are unaware of the current issue that Paola Brown and her organization HomeopathyChoice are fighting for, it’s connected with the recent announcement of the FDA. The FDA announced in December 2017 through their Draft Guidance Document that they plan to withdraw the Compliance Policy Guide 400.400 (CPG), which is a document that has benefitted the homeopathic industry for three decades.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Prejudice Against Homeopathy<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Comparing one FDA press release on homeopathy and five FDA press releases on the Tamiflu, Paola Brown says there is an apparent prejudice against homeopathy. She says the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry, as well as medical doctors, are participating in a type of ‘medical cleansing’ of homeopathy–a smear campaign to suppress the science and healthcare choice of seven million Americans.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“It is appropriate for the FDA to regulate the manufacturing of homeopathic medicine, but they should not prevent our right to access this medicine simply because they don’t epitomize it,” said Paola Brown. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Furthermore, Paola Brown says that FDA’s homeopathy press release states, “People may be placing their trust and money in therapies that may bring little to no benefit and that the FDA has a responsibility to protect the public from products that may not deliver any benefit.” <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3><strong>Americans for Homeopathy Choice takes issue with these statements because:   </strong></h3> <p>a) The majority of mothers who use homeopathy are highly educated individuals who have the right to use this medicine in their homes. </p> <p>b) Even without a college degree, people are smart enough to figure out how to use homeopathy. Around 100 million people from all different walks of life in India use homeopathy as their primary form of healthcare. And given a chance, Americans can use homeopathy successfully and efficiently.  </p> <p>According to Paola Brown, the FDA should not be infantile the public by saying we are not capable of identifying the benefits or alleged lack thereof, in homeopathy.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“I’m suspicious that they want that confusion. Because the FDA can say that we have a hard time complying or that we’re confused,” said Paola Brown. “It could be used as their reason to formulate some new regulations. And justify the move by saying they need to regulate this industry more because the public is having a hard time. That’s when we lose our freedom.” <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>More Pressing Issues<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Paola Brown says that according to the FDA, homeopathy is just a three billion dollar industry. And the pharma industry has so much more. But think about it. For every one dollar spent on a homeopathic product, that could be the equivalent of multiple in the pharma industry. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Think of all those drugs that I could have taken for my medical condition. All those procedures and the medical devices. Cantharis 200 was a huge help in curing my health condition and cost $8 to buy. The trick is finding the remedy you need,” Paola Brown said. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Empowerment<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Paola Brown believes that moms have a unique voice here, and a unique relationship with homeopathy. And she says her organization is particularly offended by what the FDA draft guidance is doing. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>The FDA said in their Draft Guidance, “People may be placing their trust on money, in therapy that may bring little or no benefit. The FDA has a responsibility to protect the public from products that may not deliver any benefit.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Paola Brown reacts by saying that looking at a mother’s perspective on that statement; it comes across as the FDA thinks we are too stupid to be able to determine whether or not a remedy works. Ironically, mothers who use homeopathy, especially in the United States, are highly educated.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“I realize that the FDA has to regulate or protect the lowest common denominator, the most vulnerable in the population. So meaning, they don’t regulate the educated moms. Instead, they regulate who they think is the dumbest person in the crowd,” said Paola Brown. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>She adds. “The result is that the entire market gets dumb down. So basically, the FDA is enabling the public to get more stupid. The FDA is sacrificing the power of the consumer to use and learn homeopathy under their guide. They are disempowering us by depriving us of our choices.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>There was a time when FDA went into homeopathic pharmacies and ran inspections. The FDA allegedly found varying levels of belladonna in those teething tablets. But Paola Brown says the FDA failed to mention the truth.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Apparently, even if the levels of belladonna were varied, they were all still well below toxic levels. Paola Brown also learned that one had to take 12 bottles within a short amount of time to maybe reach some toxic level. Despite that, the FDA said it was at elevated amounts which made it sound dangerous, but they weren’t. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“It became a scapegoat to badmouth homeopathy. And it is the only reason why the FDA wanted to revisit this draft guidance and CPG,” Paola Brown said.   </p> <p>She adds, “The fact that people are capable of finding value, people choose things based on the perceived value. There is something here that is marginalized and prejudiced. And for homeopathy to survive this long, it is because people find it valuable. That’s how we learn.”  </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Paola Brown is a wife and mother of 3 children, and they live on a homestead in Texas where (at peak production) they raise about 80% of their food. She has been a college professor for 13 years and is an activist advocating for homeopathy. </em><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p><em>Paola Brown sits on the board of the Texas Society of Homeopathy, but most importantly, she is the President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice (HomeopathyChoice.org).

To teach us more about what homeopathy is, I’m so thrilled Cilla Whatcott is again on the show for the third time to explain to us everything you need to know about this amazing method of natural healing.</p> <h3>Discovering Homeopathy</h3> <p>Cilla Whatcott has guested on <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/homeoprophylaxis/">episode 137</a></strong> and <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/real-immunity/">episode 155 </a></strong>where she elaborated on how her homeopathy journey started. She describes herself as a classical Homeopath who has four children — three were adopted from Russia, China, and Taiwan, and one is biological.</p> <p>She recalls all three kids had problems like asthma, kidney reflux, and migraines. One of her daughters, in particular, had a vaccine injury and suffered from aseptic meningitis.  So early on, Cilla Whatcott realized that it was ultimately up to her to take care of her kids.</p> <p>A ray of hope happened when Cilla Whatcott’s pediatrician sent her to a Homeopath. Eventually, her children’s health improved considerably. Because of that, Cilla Whatcott decided to study homeopathy. So instead of pursuing a career in dance after applying for a Fullbright scholarship in Europe, she studied in homeopathic school for four years.<strong> </strong></p> <p>“Initial research just led me into vaccine science. Looking at the studies and attending conferences, it was just asking all the deeper questions about vaccines,” said Cilla Whatcott. “After I attended homeopathy school, I discovered homeoprophylaxis and recognized an amazing alternative to educate the immune system.”</p> <h3>What A Fever Means</h3> <p>Cilla Whatcott has a new video documentary coming out called <strong><a href= "https://cillawhatcott.samcart.com/referral/Gxsoo5Fu/R3tqTMlXBKe6BEJh" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Real Immunity</a></strong>.  The 2-part documentary one of the topics extensively covered is the subject regarding fever.</p> <p>Among the experts, Cilla Whatcott included in the film is Dr. Debra Gambrell who I have guested on my <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/healing-autism/">podcast’s episode 164</a></strong>. I generally know to have a fever is good because it is a distinct signal to warn you that something is going on in your body.</p> <p>Some people deal with fevers by soaking in an ice bath. And some people wrap themselves up to sweat out the heat which was what my father used to do. In my episode with Debra Gambrell, she links fevers to neurological development, and that is a necessary function of development.</p> <p>And when we suppress a fever, we’re inhibiting the brain and all the nerves in the body. Heavy metals in the body also do the same thing. That’s why we end up dealing with memory issues.</p> <p>Cilla Whatcott also shares that Naturopath Dr. Kendra Becker is also in the film. And she gives the cutest example of first-time fever with the baby and how the parents are ready to lose their mind. She narrates that once parents come out of the clinic after 72 hours, they usually look like they walked on fire.</p> <p>“Fever is a natural mechanism that nature put in place, for us to create natural viral antibodies. So when you have a fever, your body is producing national antibodies to fight whatever the infection is. And then provide you with lifelong immunity to that particular virus,” said Cilla Whatcott. </p> <h3>What A Fever Does</h3> <p>Cilla Whatcott adds that a fever also resets the gut. A fever resets our system, develops antibodies, and discharges toxins. It is a keynote of that circular process exercising the immune system. It is the basis of building a lifelong immunity.</p> <h3>Fever And Drugs</h3> <p>To suppress a fever with drugs, Cilla Whatcott says we’re only driving the pathology deeper into the organism. So in the film, Cilla Whatcott featured something she calls the health helix which offers a lot of information and knowledge value about fevers and how to treat it.</p> <p>“If you suppress the fever, discharge, and the symptoms, it is driven deeper into the system, and you see a deeper pathology,” explains Cilla Whatcott.</p> <h3>Other Conditions</h3> <p>Cilla Whatcott says that another issue is how we commonly deal with asthma and respiratory symptoms. She said we might see it go deeper into behavioral symptoms like ADHD, depression, and anxiety. We will eventually see the trajectory of health going downwards.</p> <p>“If you remove suppressive toxins and have clean water, air, food and an emotional environment that is supportive, then you have all the components to regenerate,” said Cilla Whatcott.</p> <h3>Homeoprophylaxis</h3> <p>Like what Cilla Whatcott stressed in two of our past episodes, homeoprophylaxis is a subset of homeopathy where they use different remedies. It is utilized for a lot of health conditions in many countries. Highly effective with no side effects, it has no deaths, and it doesn’t compromise innate immunity.</p> <p>“It is completely unprofitable for pharma, inexpensive to make and easy to distribute. Even unlicensed personnel can distribute it,” Cilla Whatcott said. “It applies to all genders, all ages, all species and mutated viruses. So when something mutates and a new vaccine has to be developed, it’s not the same compared to homeoprophylaxis. Between effectiveness, safety, and eco-suitable, you can’t beat it.”</p> <p>My past guest, <strong><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/ph/podcast/227-natural-medicine-cures-chronic-disease-magnesium/id1090272358?i=1000402079662&mt=2" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Dr. Carolyn Dean on episode 227</a></strong>, has the same conviction. She encourages people to continue the fight in implementing safe and natural alternatives to treat various health conditions. </p> <h3>Truth About Vaccines</h3> <p>Those who have been following my podcast would recall that I mention Ty Bollinger’s “The Truth About Vaccines” video documentary. A lot of people are afraid to watch it, perhaps because they aren’t emotionally ready to learn the truth.</p> <p>But the documentary is something everyone should watch because it teaches us how to build immunity. In my opinion, Ty Bollinger did a fabulous job. The video includes interviews with celebrated experts.</p> <p>Educating people to veer away from vaccines is hard work, but some doctors strive to push that cause. I had <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/safe-vaccines/">Dr. Paul Thomas in episode 224</a></strong>, who has over 13,000 patients in his Portland, Oregon practice. He says most of his patients are unvaccinated.</p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas shared that during the most massive influenza outbreak they had recently, not one of his kids got the flu. He teaches the patients what food to eat and not to eat.</p> <p>And to help oversee his patients, he has pediatrician Dr. Linda Baker in his office who does homeoprophylaxis, who incidentally, is a colleague of Cilla Whatcott.</p> <p>“Ten or twelve years ago, I was teaching Vaccine Information. It was so non-controversial at that time when a local community college allowed me to teach the course,” recalls Cilla Whatcott. “Along came a time when the community college said we couldn’t hold this class anymore. Because they were getting pressure from the health department.</p> <p>So now, when Cilla Whatcott teaches in different venues, it is a welcome surprise that more parents now know a lot of information. Apparently, more parents now do their research.</p> <p>“The societal shift was fascinating. It’s a result of the internet, a result of people seeing injuries, and being motivated to step and do what best for their kids. Things are changing,” said Cilla Whatcott.</p> <h3>Mission Behind Real Immunity Documentary</h3> <p>To be able to provide more information to the public, Cilla Whatcott also made a 2-part video documentary called Real Immunity. Her goal was to make something empowering and supportive because she genuinely believes that to raise consciousness, you need to associate with others on the same wavelength as you are. And that strengthens us in such a way as to bring others up.</p> <p>“And fear is one of the lowest rungs on the ladder of consciousness. Fear doesn’t motivate us and instead, squelches us,” said Cilla Whatcott. “So what I wanted to do is make a film that first and foremost, dispelled fear and teach people how to access that inner wisdom, the intelligence of life or spirit.”</p> <p>Cilla Whatcott also wanted to provide method tools through her film. She says everybody’s toolkit is unique to them. So to do that, we need to do the research. The underlying theme of the movie means that we can’t rely on someone else to take care of our health because we are born with the gift of immunity.</p> <p>First part of the documentary is called, “Quested for Real Immunity,” while the second part is called, “Passage To Real Immunity.” The video will be free for 36 hours, and it will be available in DVD form.</p> <p>There is also an opportunity for people to bring the film to their hometown through the Real Immunity website. People can input their zip code to search for the nearest local theater. A theater screening of the film can be organized provided it reaches the minimum number ticket sales. Plus, the one who was able to raise the minimum ticket sales will be given 5% of the proceeds.</p> <h3>Making The Film</h3> <p>Cilla Whatcott says that the visual and auditory message has a powerful impact. She has taught for years in the community. But she realized there is no way she could educate in the same way compared to making a film. That became her motivation to teach through a new medium.</p> <p>She originally planned to divide the documentary to seven or ten parts. Then the series shifted to four parts and now finalized to two parts. The first episode is what Cilla Whatcott described as a foundation episode and scheduled to launch on February 22 this year. It dispels the fear and talks about intuition. It also takes a more in-depth look at what makes a competent practitioner and a good patient.</p> <p>The second episode coming out later this year dives into methods. Cilla Whatcott clarifies that she’s not going to tell the viewer what to do but instead utilize interviews with experts to talk about Chinese medicine, functional medicine, gemmotherapy, homeopathy, and homeoprophylaxis.</p> <p>“It’s up to the viewer to explore and make those choices. I feel strongly about free urgency. Rather than expecting people to look towards someone else, and say you need to do it. Providing choices is better,” Cilla Whatcott said.</p> <p>Cilla Whatcott also made a special mention of Dr. Jeanne Ohm from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. According to Cilla Whatcott, Dr. Jeanne Ohm dives into what is the intelligence of life. She is an excellent resource person if anyone wants to get more information on making the right medical choices for kids.</p> <p>“More than anything, I want to give parents support as the experts for their child. And that they can trust their choices because they have their child’s welfare at heart,” said Cilla Whatcott. </p> <h3>Challenges In Making The Film</h3> <p>Cilla Whatcott shares that there are a lot of hits and misses in the making of the film. She went as far as taking an online film course and took time to look for videographers. It was hard soliciting funds, getting the right videographer and marketing team but Cilla Whatcott says the effort was worth it.</p> <p>“I had great relationships with really fabulous people that I respected. That was the easy part. And it is exciting to know that I completed something I envisioned,” said Cilla Whatcott.</p> <h3>Power Of Film</h3> <p>Among the experts Cilla Whatcott included in the film, she said the interviews with Dr. Andrew Wakefield was most interesting. British gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield earned the media moniker, “Father of Anti-Vaccine Movement,” after his controversial research linking MMR vaccine and autism came out.</p> <p>In Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s paper, he mentioned his discovery of measles virus in the bowels of children and testimonials of mothers who saw changes in their kids after being vaccinated with the MMR vaccine. His paper suggested the need for more studies and recommended that the vaccine is given separately.</p> <p>A series of events occurred and Dr. Andrew Wakefield eventually lost his license to practice in the United Kingdom. He eventually moved to the United States and began other types of research on autism apart from making films. One of the films Dr. Andrew Wakefield made was titled, “Vaxed.” It exposed the fraud that took place within the CDC and the MMR study.</p> <p>Dr. Andrew Wakefield also made the film, “Who Killed Alex Spourdalakis,” which is about an autistic teenager who was given medication for his condition and the hospital would not take him off the medication even if it had adverse effects. To end the suffering, the mother finally killed her child and tried to kill herself.</p> <p>The mother was later on charged in court for first-degree murder. During the progression of the case, the prosecuting attorney found out Dr. Andrew Wakefield was filming the child the whole time. The lawyer asked for footage and eventually, the charges were dropped against the mother.</p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Cilla Whatcott is a board-certified classical homeopath with a B.A. from Arizona State University, a diploma from the four-year professional program at Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy, and a Ph.D. in Homeopathy.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>She is an instructor at Normandale Community College and the author of</em><em>“There Is a Choice: Homeoprophylaxis,” and co-author of “The Solution – Homeoprophylaxis.</em><em>”</em></p> <p><em>Whatcott is also the executive director of Worldwide Choice.

However, most people take magnesium for granted when along with other minerals, so many illnesses can be reversed. So, we’re fortunate to have Dr. Carolyn Dean elaborate on why magnesium is vital to our health.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Early Challenges<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean went into practice in 1979. Before that, she went through quite a challenge since around that time; women weren’t given high ranks in the workforce even if they were bright. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Getting her medical degree first, Dr. Carolyn Dean recalls that back then, there were no Naturopathic schools in Canada. But she already thought back then that thirty to forty years down the road, becoming a Naturopath would be popular, and everyone would get on board taking care of health. Dr. Carolyn Dean even thought a three-day work week was possible.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“But we know what happened. The commercialization of medicine and disease happened, and medicine just turned into the dark side,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.  </p> <h3>Roadblocks<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean also remembers the obstacles she went through especially for doctors like her who were promoting their dietary supplements.  Their voices were suppressed if it was about supporting natural products.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Medical authorities won’t allow us to say something like magnesium might be a health cure. They won’t let you see that because it will mean that you’ll stop taking drugs,” reveals Dr. Carolyn Dean. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Legal Challenges<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean was practicing as a Naturopath and was into natural treatments like Acupuncture and Homeopathy. She also did occasional medical surgeries to help save organs.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Things started to get out of hand when Dr. Carolyn Dean said some bad things about sugar on a Canadian national TV show in 1991 or 1992. After the episode aired, Dr. Carolyn Dean found herself attacked by the Sugar Institute of Canada. They went to Dr. Carolyn Dean’s licensing board which resulted in the board admonishing her. They even sent spies into her practice.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“They got this young man to complain to my licensing board that I refused to give him a homeopathic remedy for his allergies on his first appointment. If I gave it to him, he still would have complained. It was a planned thing,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Years later, Dr. Carolyn Dean had no more license to practice in Canada, since she already acquired her California license. The medical board took the opportunity to hold a mock court in Toronto. They took away Dr. Carolyn Dean’s non-existent license to send a message to medical practitioners that they couldn’t do alternatives.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“So if people wonder why doctors don’t get involved with nutrition, alternatives, and dietary supplements, it is because they are likely to be attacked,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>I understand Dr. Carolyn Dean’s ordeal.  My hero, Dr. Joe Wallach has been attacked eleven or twelve times by the FDA. He’s very outspoken and has always stood his ground on his research and findings. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>The Magnesium Miracle Book<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>There are 65 health conditions that Dr. Carolyn Dean has listed in her Magnesium Miracle book. According to her, those conditions can be triggered or caused by a magnesium deficiency and misdiagnosed as diseases. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>I suggest everyone get a copy of the book as well as Dr. Carolyn Dean’s other published works. It is a wonderful resource to educate you on why minerals are so essential.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Magnesium And Sugar<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean says there is apparently a vindication about magnesium and sugar. Sugar-lobbied groups changed the whole dialogue about sugar and made it about fats. They saw the research thirty to forty years ago, showing that sugar was bad for the heart. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Groups buried that research and blamed it on fats. We know that olive oil, coconut oil, and butter are good for the body, but those groups instead lobbied for trans fat which is even worse for health than sugar,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.   </p> <h3>Burning Fats <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean explains that now with all this sugar and excess carbohydrates that the body cannot sustain, our body keeps making insulin. The insulin will push some of the sugars into our cells for energy, the rest in liver storage. Hence, increasing the risk of having a fatty liver. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“As long as you are eating carbohydrates constantly, you will never burn fat. So the beauty of a ketogenic diet and fasting is that you stop eating carbohydrates to a great extent. After sugar gets used up, that’s when you start fat burning and lose weight,” Dr. Carolyn Dean explains.  </p> <h3>Ongoing Debate<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>There has never been a death due to dietary supplements. Despite that, Dr. Carolyn Dean says many medical authorities are still saying supplements are dangerous. And lucky for us, things are different now than it was before. Today, our voices can be heard especially since more people are seeking treatments the natural way.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>One major issue at hand is the fact that the FDA made an announcement recently, planning to pass a guideline wherein people can no longer buy homeopathic remedies. The verdict is still pending. Because currently, there is a write-in and call in period wherein the public is allowed to comment on these proposed FDA guidelines making homeopathic remedies into drugs. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Codex Alimentarius<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>I recall Dr. Rima Laibow, who is a successful doctor of Natural Medicine. She graduated from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1970 and had studied more than 16,000 pages of Codex Alimentarius documentation. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Codex Alimentarius is a compilation of medical standards, codes of practice and guidelines on food, food production, and food safety. But Dr. Rima Laibow believes it is a severe threat to health freedom. She spoke lengthily about it in her speech at the <strong><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTs408Nzl0A&t=34s" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">2005 National Association of Nutrition Professionals conference</a></strong>. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>On the other hand, Dr. Carolyn Dean encourages people to support the causes of the National Health Alliance. Among the organization’s current focus is spearheading activities to fight against the suppression of Natural Medicine. This is because medicine companies look at Natural Medicine as competition.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Importance of Dietary Supplements<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean says we need dietary supplements to make up for the loss of vitamins and minerals in our body. She reveals that a hundred years ago, we could get approximately 500mg of magnesium in our diet. But now we’re considering ourselves lucky even to get at least 200mg of magnesium in our diet. The alarming thing is, not any of this information is brought out to the public.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“For all the processing the body goes through to burn fat for energy, we need other co-factors for those metabolic processes. And magnesium is necessary for 700 to 800 different enzymatic processes in the body,” Dr. Carolyn Dean said.  </p> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean also says that patients are usually clueless on how to maximize taking supplements. It was also a learning process for Dr. Carolyn Dean. Years ago, she initially was anti-supplements after trying to work with her heart palpitations, leg cramps, and neck pain.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“In my efforts to get healthy, I realized I was the poster child for magnesium deficiency. But I found out I couldn’t take one pill of magnesium without getting the laxative effect,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean. “Years after I wrote my book, I even was trying to interest minerals manufacturers in researching, and making non-laxative magnesium.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>ReMag Supplements</h3> <p>She adds, “Finally, I made my own. When people started to take my ReMag supplements, they didn’t need anything else. They started feeling better,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>In further studies, Dr. Carolyn Dean also found out that the body absorbs only 4% of magnesium oxide. The rest becomes a laxative. She also explained in her first book that 500mg of magnesium oxide has 300g of elemental magnesium. Taking Dr. Carolyn Dean’s line of supplements in effect regulates so many factors that our body needs to function well, especially our heart.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“The heart is one big muscle. Magnesium controls muscles and nerves. If you don’t have enough magnesium, your muscle goes into spasm because it has too much calcium,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.  </p> <p>She adds, “Magnesium doesn’t act like blood thinner. But it prevents the excess calcium from building up, and calcium triggers blood clots. The enzyme that balances cholesterol is controlled by magnesium.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Suggested Diet<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>First of all, Dr. Carolyn Dean recommends taking Epson salt and magnesium citrate in powder form, mix with water and sip through the day. Mostly, it is essential to stay hydrated.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean recommends drinking half your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of water. Then add ¼ tsp of Sea salt or Himalayan salt to every quart of drinking water.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>For solid foods, Dr. Carolyn Dean’s favorite is making a huge salad mixed with salmon for protein and macadamia nuts pate. Macadamia nuts are high in fat, but they’re fantastic!<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>To make the pate, mix 8 ounces of lemon juice concentrate, 4 ounces of water, one teaspoon of unrefined sea salt, a handful of garlic and blend with 2 to 3 cups of nuts. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Carolyn Dean’s favorite treats, on the other hand, is eating frozen organic strawberry with a quarter cup of heavy whipping cream. She sometimes mixes it with kefir and eats it with ice cream.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Her simple banana treat sounds just as delicious! She suggests taking a frozen banana, roll it with a tablespoon of cacao powder, a tablespoon of coconut oil and sugar substitute.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>She also affirms that there are a lot of fun things you can do with a ketogenic diet. Out of all the diets, the ketogenic diet is an excellent detox from sugar, it gives the pancreas a nice rest, and it is an anti-inflammatory diet.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Diet Tips</h3> <p>For more diet tips, Dr. Carolyn Dean personally recommends linking to the website of Dr. Jason Fung, also known as <strong><a href="https://www.dietdoctor.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The Diet Doctor</a></strong>.

226 Boomers and Millennials, The Demographics and Future of Holistic Medicine, Health, Food, and Biotech, with Demographer and Author Kenneth Gronbach and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><a href="http://www.KGCDirect.com">www.KGCDirect.com</a></p> <p>Books:</p> <p>“Upside: Profiting from the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead” http://amzn.to/2EvnXf0</p> <p>"The Age Curve: How To Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm" <a href="http://amzn.to/2sjSbMT">http://amzn.to/2sjSbMT</a></p> <p> </p> <h2><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Demography </strong></span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/demography/">http://learntruehealth.com/demography/</a></strong></span></p> <p>Demography plays a big part in understanding populations all over the world. Several agencies provide updated data that prove shifts in demography affect health systems. To know more about how demography changes our lives, demographer Kenneth Gronbach will explain all of the factors that influence the world population in this episode.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Advertising Industry<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kenneth Gronbach shares that before he got into demographics research, we were working in the advertising and marketing industry from 1979 to 1991. His most prominent client was selling American Honda motorcycles and represented 140 dealers from the tip of Maine, Pittsburg and Washington D.C.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>The motorcycles were shipped from Japan, and they were selling like hotcakes since 1986. When they stumbled on a sales problem in 1986, Kenneth Gronbach and his team decided to reduce the price of the motorcycles. They also developed scooters in an attempt to revive the market. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>But their efforts were futile. By 1992, the industry’s Japanese brands fell by 80% which left them clueless. Eventually, it led them to close dealerships.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Discovering Demographics<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kenneth Gronbach recalls that he first stumbled on the importance of demographics in 1996 when he was in his office reading a full-page editorial.  That editorial indicted the whole Generation X by labeling them as slackers, lazy, and couch potatoes because they were allegedly not performing at the level of the Baby Boomers. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Generation X are those people who were born between 1965 to 1984. A skeptic of the editorial, Kenneth Gronbach called his research department and asked them to research everything about Generation X. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Generation X Revelation<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>The report from Kenneth Gronbach’s research department was surprising.  The research team said that apparently, Generation X would never perform at the level of the Baby Boomers.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>According to the report, Generation X was not lazy. There were just fewer babies born from 1965 to 1984 than there were in 1945 to 1964. Boomers are bouncing off to 80 million, and Generation X is only 69 million.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“So I think we solved the issue with motorcycle sales. Because if Generation X is 11 to 12% smaller, a 25% reduction in the size of the population will wipe out any market,” said Kenneth Gronbach. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Effects of Generation X<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Generation X made a significant impact in population. Kenneth Gronbach says they shut down maternity wards and hospitals because they weren’t needed. Research reports indicate that the Baby Boomers were producing way over 4 million babies a year while Generation X dropped to 3 million babies a year. As a result, they also closed 30% of the public schools.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Kenneth Gronbach also said that Detroit did not figure out why they couldn’t sell the same number of highly profitable SUVs to this new Generation X. This is because nobody bothered to count them.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Adding on to the problem was that in 2008 when Baby Boomers were bumping up against retirement and had their entire retirement in their home equity,” said Kenneth Gronbach. “Baby Boomers decided it was time to get the equity out and move to Florida. And they did so in massive numbers.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Labor Problem<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Another important situation affected by the demographics shift is labor. Kenneth Gronbach says that Generation X is currently people aged 34 to 53 years old. It is a small generation. And because Generation X was missing 9 or 10 million people, just in time for the Baby Boomers to demand services, labor was in a jam.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“Immigrants from Mexico came in and took a lot of the entry-level jobs. Without Latinos, we wouldn’t have enough babies now to sustain our country and culture,” said Kenneth Gronbach.   </p> <p>He adds,”If you look at the lion’s share of the Latinos in the United States, we have a huge block that is currently 34 to 53 years old. And the ones that stayed were socio-economically advancing which is wonderful. Culturally, they are a perfect match for our country.” <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Apparently, in France, the indigenous folks did not produce enough children, so they didn’t have enough labor. On the contrary, in 2007, the United States broke the live birth record. It was first set in 1957 when there were 4.3 million Boomers. In 2007, it grew to  4,316,000 babies where 25% were Latinos.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Diving Deep <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Once Kenneth Gronbach understood the power of demographics shift, he went into 21 years of research. He eventually got to meet Dr. Nicolas Eberstadt who got his degree from Harvard University and is the State Department Demographer.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Upon comparing data, Kenneth Gronbach and Dr. Nicolas Eberstadt concluded that their findings are the same. Dr. Nicolas Eberstadt even commended Kenneth Gronbach’s research data because it combined demography and marketing, something the State Department wasn’t capable of doing.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Crime Rate<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kenneth Gronbach also revealed that women are less likely to commit crimes compared to men. He says crime is committed by men aged between 15 to 30 years old, who are currently considered Millenials. He also forecasts that the rate will continue to rise as years pass by.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Millenial Problem<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>“The population of Millenials is larger than the Boomers. Most of my demographics is Generation X,” said Kenneth Gronbach. “The old end are just starting households and marrying late. They couldn’t leave home early in life because they’re not welcomed into the labor force.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Kenneth Gronbach explains that 50% of Millenials coming out of college are unemployed. Boomers are not leaving the labor force because they couldn’t afford to. Things have indeed turned around. The Boomers are currently aged 54 to 73, and they are retiring a little bit late.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Demographics And Health<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kenneth Gronbach predicts that the health choices of Millenials will significantly impact the health industry. He says Millenials prefer cleaner food and are more inclined to GMO-free, and responsibly-sourced animal products.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“They are going to shift. I speak to farmers all the time and tell them they have to deal with GMO issues because the market is going to force them to do that,” said Kenneth Gronbach.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Silent Generation<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Between 1925 and 1944, we produced a generation called the Silent Generation. According to Kenneth Gronbach, there are only 50 million of them, and these are primarily Generation X’s parents. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>The Silent Generation followed the generation before them which was the G.I. Generation from 1905 to1924. The G.I. Generation was the generation that fought in World War 2. It was a massive generation of about 70 million and following them was a tiny generation. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“So the needs and demands of the Silent Generation who were born from 1925 to 1944 were small. Then come along the Boomers who demanded more service. Generation X on the other hand, needed more labor,” said Kenneth Gronbach. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Distribution Problem<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Data shows we produce enough food to feed 14 billion people and we throw half of it away. So Kenneth Gronbach believes we don’t have a food problem but rather a distribution problem. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>It started when something happened in 1964. Half of the women in the world dropped below replacement level fertility which is 2.2 kids. And it never looked back. The rate of growth of our population is declining. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“We will probably grow to 10 or 12 billion by 2050 or 2060. And then the population of the earth is going to begin to subside,” said Kenneth Gronbach. “But the problem is, the majority of the earth is market economies which rely on consumers.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Fertility Issues<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>In the recent <strong><a href= "http://www.learntruehealth.com/summit">Heavy Metals Summit</a></strong>, we saw that a lot of factors are affected by the presence of heavy metals in the environment we live in and the lifestyle we have. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>So we also need to consider the outside effects on fertility when we talk of demographics. One of the external forces affecting fertility dramatically is that women are waiting to get pregnant. And the older you get, the hard it is to get pregnant. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>But that’s a challenge nowadays because both parents need to work. And the added stress contributes to fertility issues. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Housing Problem<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kenneth Gronbach says there are currently 330 million people in the US and 10 million of these are illegal. But demographers count illegals because they are in the country. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Furthermore, Kenneth Gronbach shares that the number of housing units that are available in the U.S. is about 155 million. The two most substantial parts of our population are Baby Boomers numbering to 80 million and their kids, numbering 68 million.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“A lot of people in their 20s are living at home because they are not welcome in the labor force. So they’re moving out, starting households and getting married takes longer. The problem is because a lot of Boomers are refusing to die and get old,” said Kenneth Gronbach. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Currently, Kenneth Gronbach says we are 25 million housing units short of our needs. And the demand for housing is going to spike for the next few years.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Kenneth Gronbach’s Books<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Demographics is such an exciting topic, and it will make you understand how population changes generation after generation. To those who would like to know more about demographics, Kenneth Gronbach has written several books that have proved to be an excellent resource.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p><strong>Kenneth Gronbach’s books include: </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2EygOvl" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Upside: Profiting from the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead </a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2C7uRGq" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Decades of Differences: Making It Work</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2EISqq7" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Age Curve: How To Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm</a><a href="http://amzn.to/2EISqq7" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">  </a></strong></p> <p>Whether it be through his books or speaking engagements, Kenneth Gronbach says that the primary aim of his work is to educate, entertain and inspire people.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Looking Ahead<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Looking ahead, Kenneth Gronbach says that compared to any generation in history, the Millenials are going to be infinitely more respectful of each other. He also forecasts that Houston, Texas will continue to attract Millenials because of the quality of life, cost of living and job opportunities.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>As far as commerce is concerned, he cites three categories where there is a significant possibility for growth:<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <ol> <li>Healthcare – demand for better food</li> <li>Eldercare – going to be off the charts</li> <li>Deathcare- the need for more funeral homes and crematoriums </li> </ol> <p>“There will be a diversity of cultures in the future.

225 Dirty Genes, Breakthrough Program to Treat the Root Cause of Illness, Optimize Health, Epigenetics, MTHFR, DHFR, Folate vs. Folic Acid, Methylation Defects with Naturopathic Doctor and Autor Dr. Ben Lynch Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><span class="field-rendered"><a href="http://amzn.to/2nHlhBf" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Book:</a> Dirty Genes http://amzn.to/2nHlhBf</span></p> <p><span class="field-rendered"><a href= "http://www.drbenlynch.com">www.drbenlynch.com</a></span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Dirty Genes </span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/dirty-genes/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/dirty-genes/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Dirty genes is a significant factor why we do not reach an optimal level of health. Our body needs healthy genes to function properly. But unfortunately, many people are still unaware of this vital aspect of health.  That’s why we’re so lucky to have Dr. Ben Lynch here with us today to explain everything you need to know about dirty genes.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Childhood Interest<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch was 16 years old when he was first introduced to biochemistry in high school. He thought it was the best class he ever had because it taught him about how the body works. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Because Dr. Ben Lynch became fascinated with how our body was wired, he went on to pursue a medical degree in college. But it was not long before he realized that standard medicine and the conventional route was not for him.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>The turning point in his career path was when Dr. Ben Lynch got sick during a trip to India. Finding a cure for his illness, he was introduced to a peculiar form of medicine. Dr. Ben Lynch recalls that the one treating him checked his tongue, pulse, and gave a weird prescription. Surprisingly, he felt better after 40 minutes! <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>That experience eventually led Dr. Ben Lynch to pursue a career as a Naturopathic Doctor by getting his degree at Bastyr University. But Dr. Ben Lynch still felt it wasn’t enough until he developed an interest in Environmental Medicine. This led him to discover epigenetics.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Focus On Epigenetics<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch was very much concerned about how a poor environment can make people very ill and develop dirty genes.  When he learned that genes were a significant factor in the entire process, he started to dive deeper into genetic research.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Our genes require tools. Most of the tools come from the food that we eat. If we are providing our body with healthful, wholesome foods, our genes get the tools they can use to function. Such as protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, water, air, and sunlight,” said Dr. Ben Lynch. </p> <p>He adds, “We give genes those tools through nutrition, breathing properly, hydration and avoid doing stuff that makes them do excessive work like chemicals in the environment, wi-fi signals, and polluted air.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>And that’s so true! I first heard about epigenetics from Dr. Joe Wallach. He wrote the book, <strong><a href= "http://amzn.to/2spyZ0g" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Epigenetics: The Death of the Genetic Theory of Disease Transmission</a></strong>. The book explains how nutrition supports the genes to be healthy. It’s a very informative book, and I recommend all you listeners to include this in your reading list. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Air Purifiers<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Pollutants in the environment are unavoidable. But because they cause dirty genes, Dr. Ben Lynch says one way to clear the air is using air purifiers. Air purifiers can clear the air of chemicals and elements like smoke, pollen, and dust.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Good brands of air purifiers include IQAir and Alen Air. But Dr. Ben Lynch puts in a word of caution if and when you decide to get one.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“Air purifiers have an engine.  I recommend plugging it in and turn on outside to let it off the gas,” advises Dr. Ben Lynch. “Because nowadays, everything is wrapped in plastic. When you turn it on, there are so many volatile organic compounds that are being emitted.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch also advises avoiding having carpets if you want to avoid having dirty genes. Because apparently, carpets are sponges that hold dirt. There are also a lot of other odd compounds in carpets. It traps dust and humidity, attracts molds and dust mites. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Gas And Cooking<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>We also know that gas is a toxic substance.  That’s why Dr. Ben Lynch strictly advises that gas is something that needs to be outside. So, if you’re cooking, you need to be using your exhaust fan. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Smoke from oils have formaldehyde, destroy genes and burdens the body. Then a lot of people are taking antacids, which are inhibiting their primary detoxification system,” said Dr. Ben Lynch. “People are also loading up with Tylenol. This depletes primary antioxidants. So be wary of what you buy over the counter.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch says it is also bad to inhale smoke from cars. The carbon monoxide binds to the hemoglobin. And when carbon monoxide seeps into our tissues, it can eventually kill us. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“You increase cardiovascular disease risk from inhaling smoke. People who are exercising in more polluted areas are also increasing cardiovascular risk,” Dr. Ben Lynch said. “That has to do with a gene called NOS 3, which is an important gene to keep clean.”  <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Dirty Genes Course<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>To those who would like to know more about the causes of dirty genes, do sign up for Dr. Ben Lynch’s course. The course provides a lot of insights on how to optimize your eating habits, and to have a better experience without supplements. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“The course guides people through the fundamentals of life. It also educates people why we need folate to make our body function right,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>According to Dr. Ben Lynch, folate is essential in things like:<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <ul> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="1" data-aria-level="1"> regulating white blood cells<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></li> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="2" data-aria-level="1"> fighting infection<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></li> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="3" data-aria-level="1"> regulating red blood cells so we can breathe<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></li> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="4" data-aria-level="1"> regulate our platelets<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></li> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="4" data-aria-level="1"> nourish our neurotransmitters so we can think<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></li> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="4" data-aria-level="1">helps repair DNA when chemicals invade into our system<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></li> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="4" data-aria-level="1"> essential in kids’ growth<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></li> <li data-leveltext="" data-font="Symbol" data-listid="5" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="4" data-aria-level="1">makes skin healthy since our skin creates skin cells all the time<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </li> </ul> <h3>Importance Of Folic Acid<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Folic acid is a form of folate and is one of the B vitamins that we need. The U.S. recommended daily allowance of folic acid is 400 micrograms. These may be gained through food or dietary supplements.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Folic acid binds preferentially to the folate receptors and folate transporters in the body. It goes through the DHFR (dihydrofolate reductase) gene.  This gene can handle 200 micrograms of folic acid before it gets saturated,” said Dr. Ben Lynch. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>But Dr. Ben Lynch says some people have a genetic problem with this particular gene. Apparently, the folic acid can’t get through the DHFR gene. It has to go somewhere, so it ends up staying in the blood. Researchers call it unmetabolized folic acid. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“What unmetabolized folic acid does, is that it will get to your folate transport protein. Folic acid blocks transportation of the folate and getting inside the cell,” explains Dr. Ben Lynch.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch also reveals that people can be functionally folate-deficient. This is because they are functionally depriving their cells of the number one type of folate in their body which is methylfolate. Common side effects include experiencing brain fog, moodiness, and an unexplainable toxic feeling.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>StrateGene<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Ready to dive deeper into how genes work? Dr. Ben Lynch developed a genetic report called StrateGene. It uses 23andMe instead of ancestry because according to Dr. Ben Lynch, ancestry mainly has ancestral DNA. In order words, he says you don’t have clinically relevant genes on www.ancestry.com to run through a genetic report. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>StrateGene also provides you a map so you can see what dirties up the genes. It also provides a quick glance at how vitamins, minerals, medication, and chemicals interfere with certain things.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“If you see any condition run in your family, there is most likely a genetic component there. And if you lead a lifestyle that is healthy, the chances of you struggling with that condition is lower,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>But Dr. Ben Lynch says the more important factor is finding out what genes you inherited that is probably causing your illness. Knowing which genes are born dirty can give you an insight on where you should be spending more time and caution. And the cool thing is that you can support yourself through very targeted actions that will help the weaker genes. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>What are Dirty Genes?<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Now many of you may be wondering what dirty genes are. Dr. Ben Lynch explains that dirty genes are genes that are not functioning at it’s best. One can inherit dirty genes from your parents. And it usually does not function as well as it should be in your particular environment. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“You can inherit it. Genes also get dirty by sitting in the garage after turning on your car or turning on your gas stove and not turning the hood on. Dirty genes are also from eating unhealthy or from chronic stress,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Juicing, Raw Foods And Cooking<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch advises that if you cook your leafy green vegetables, steam them for a short period. That’s where you’ll get your folate. Apparently, the longer you cook, the more your folate will be destroyed. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Leafy greens are great. But if you have a weak constitution and digestion, eating raw, cold vegetables can be hard on you. So you might want to steam them,” Dr. Ben Lynch advises. ” If you have a frail palate, steam veggies and have soup. Keep in mind your body temperature, the power of your digestion and how you feel after. Listen to your body.” <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch claims to love juicing as well. He says he prefers using a Blendtec over Vitamix because it is not as noisy. I like Blendtec, too. But I have heard feedback from friends that it breaks down. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Incidentally, I had the Vitamix expert Lenny Gale on my show a couple of times.  His website <strong><a href= "https://lifeisnoyoke.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Life is No Yoke</a></strong> is packed with info on the different Vitamix models as well as yummy recipes using Vitamix. So I invite everyone to check out his website.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Histamine Intolerance<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch also recommends a good brand of probiotics to keep our microbiome healthy. Some health conditions like headaches, runny nose, asthma and leaky gut is a sign that one may have histamine intolerance.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Histamine in the stomach and small intestines is good because it stimulates the stomach acid, movement of stool and immune response. But it is not good to have too much histamine in our gut because it could lead to digestive issues like diarrhea, and acid reflux.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Link Between Vaccines And Genes<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Ben Lynch shares that vaccines have a role in specific environments for certain people. But he believes vaccines are hurting our kids and pregnant women. The same goes for flu shots. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Ideally, Dr. Ben Lynch recommends that parents should wait until their child is at least 12 years old before getting them vaccinated instead of when they are newborns. This is because any heavy metal will interfere with a plethora of genes. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“You can take all the supplements you want, but if you have metals, genes won’t work well.

224 Safe Vaccine Schedule, Effective Immunity, CDC, Aluminum, Thiomersal, Allergies, Autoimmune Disease, Autism with the coauthor of The Vaccine Friendly Plan Pediatrician Dr. Paul Thomas and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><span class="field-rendered"><a href="http://amzn.to/2GHYwVV" target="_blank" rel="noopener">BOOK:</a> The Vaccine-Friendly Plan: Dr. Paul’s Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health—From Pregnancy Through Your Child’s Teen Years -</span> <span class= "field-rendered">http://amzn.to/2GHYwVV</span></p> <p><span class="field-rendered">MAIN WEB SITE: https://www.drpaulapproved.com<br /> PHOInitiative.org<br /> FOR PERSONAL EDUCATIONAL CONSULTS (Not Dr.-Patient): <a href= "http://www.vaccinefriendly.com">www.vaccinefriendly.com</a></span></p> <p> </p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Safe Vaccines </span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/safe-vaccines/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/safe-vaccines/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Safe vaccines are beneficial only if we are informed and educated about what exactly are we being injected with. My guest today, Dr. Paul Thomas is neither pro or anti-vaccine. Now, how is that possible? Well, you’re in for a real treat today learning what exactly are safe vaccines.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Growing Up In Africa<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas grew up in a village in Africa since his parents were missionaries. At four years old, he became used to living in a hut with no running water nor electricity. Despite that, Dr. Paul Thomas says his childhood was terrific. Being culturally immersed, he even thought of himself as African. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Coming from a different culture like that, you are inherently just a little more open to other ideas. One gift my parents gave me was to question authority. That was instilled in me since I was a student in middle school,” recalls Dr. Paul Thomas.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>It’s interesting to note that Dr. Paul Thomas even went to high school with the daughters of former president Nelson Mandela. Fast forward years later, Dr. Paul Thomas pursued a medical degree at Dartmouth Medical School in the United States and eventually took his residency in California. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Residency Years<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>During his residency in the mid-1980s, Dr. Paul Thomas says that’s where he first saw benefits of vaccines. Pediatric hospitals were filled with children who had various diseases, and meningitis was particularly prevalent. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Administering vaccines for meningitis became a routine.  Dr. Paul Thomas said that studies even showed that it was effective. The HIB vaccine added later on to the vaccine schedule, and it was also effective in reducing meningitis. Naturally, it became apparent that those were safe vaccines.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>The Fine Line<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas also says doctors are only taught benefits of the vaccines and not the side effects. They see worse cases in hospitals. Hence, they get the mentality that they need to prevent these things. Dr. Paul Thomas says this is also why doctors have a hard time letting go of this “vaccine miracle” concept. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Honestly if you ask pediatricians today, most will tell you that the most preventative health thing that they can do, gives vaccines. That’s how they are trained,” said Dr. Paul Thomas.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Autism And MMR<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>So many studies have come out over the years arguing on what are safe vaccines. It’s a never-ending debate. Dr. Paul Thomas has read so many materials on safe vaccines, and one, in particular, intrigued him.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas across the <a href= "http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(05)75696-8/abstract" target="_blank" rel="noopener">article</a> by Dr. Andrew Wakefield in 2000, where Dr. Andrew Wakefield wrote about the MMR vaccine and autism. According to Dr. Paul Thomas, Dr. Andrew Wakefield didn’t say the MMR vaccine caused autism. That article which was later on retracted, only suggested that perhaps there might be a link. Dr. Andrew Wakefield was just presenting some case studies in that particular piece.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“I didn’t think vaccines were a part of the problem of autism. In my experience, I saw zero cases of autism in the four years I was at Dartmouth Medical School in the early 1980s,” said Dr. Paul Thomas.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>But Dr. Paul Thomas also shares that during his 3-year residency from 1985 to 1988, he did see a couple of cases of PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified).  PDD-NOS is the equivalent of the autism spectrum child today. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Despite that, Dr. Paul Thomas says it was nothing like the severe cases these days where you see a child who is normal about a year of age and then regresses to being non-verbal, miserable and disconnected. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Ideally, Dr. Paul Thomas says that we should only be administered one aluminum-containing vaccine at a time. Furthermore, he advises waiting till after age three before a child is given the MMR vaccine. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Shifting to Alternative Medicine<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas started knowing more about alternative medicine around November 2007. He became active in attending conferences and learning about Integrative Medicine.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas remembers that the turning point in his career was seeing a two-year-old patient in a push stroller.  The toddler’s head was going back and forth. Dr. Paul Thomas takes pride in being able to connect with kids. But in this case, he wasn’t successful.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“I couldn’t connect. It was the fourth case in four years. That was the last straw for me,” Dr. Paul Thomas said. “So I told my partners I would stop giving Hepatitis B vaccine to newborns and slow down the vaccine schedule. Within a month, I was ousted from the partnership after a secret meeting.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Blessing In Disguise<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Looking back, Dr. Paul Thomas says being ousted from the medical practice partnership was the biggest blessing of his life. Six months later, Dr. Paul Thomas opened Integrative Pediatrics, which is his pediatric practice today.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>From a thousand patients, Dr. Paul Thomas says it grew to over 13,000 patients in the next few years. He even had to be closed to new patients for several years, because his practice couldn’t keep up with the demand. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Safe Vaccines<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas says that generally speaking, what people look for is really informed consent. This means people want to have the ability of choice, ability to have a doctor who listens to them and a doctor who’s educated and informed on what exactly are safe vaccines. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“You don’t have to dig far to know that vaccines have caused tremendous harm. Have they had benefits? Absolutely. Which is why I remain somewhat on the neutral side in saying that I am not anti-vaccine,” said Dr. Paul Thomas. “I’m pro-safe vaccines. I’ve progressed along to the point where I now don’t believe there is such a thing.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>In other words, Dr. Paul Thomas says it’s impossible to have 100% safe vaccines. This is because we are injecting things that stimulate the immune system. This alone poses some benefits and risks. Apart from that, Dr. Paul Thomas says we’re also injecting toxins and elements that overstimulate the immune system.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Informed Choices<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas reveals that medical students are not taught that there is a vaccine compensation program. Doctors aren’t trained about the vaccine adverse events reporting system. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Furthermore, Dr. Paul Thomas says it is essential that we need to look for a doctor who asks the ‘why’ questions. And do our research as well.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>The Vaccine-Friendly Plan <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas’ book is about a safe and effective approach to immunity and health.  It covers a vaccine-friendly plan from pregnancy to a child’s teenage years. The book is really for people who genuinely want to follow the CDC schedule. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>The guiding principle of the book is to minimize toxins, minimize risks, and still get some protection. Dr. Paul Thomas also singles out that aluminum is toxic, yet if you postpone some of the childhood vaccines until they’re older, it will make sense for a lot of reasons. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“I wrote my book because after I started my practice, I instituted what I called the Vaccine-Friendly Plan. Don’t do vaccines during pregnancy,” advises Dr. Paul Thomas. “No Hepatitis vaccine until you’re at least pre-teen unless the birth mother has Hepatitis B. And there’s no need for polio because it’s not infectious.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Vaccine-Friendly Plan Limitations <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Under the plan, Dr. Paul Thomas has gathered data from over 1000 patients.  From the batch, 894 patients were vaccinated, and 238 patients weren’t vaccinated. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>From that data, Dr. Paul Thomas found out that all of the patients with autism was in the group that was most vaccinated. On the contrary, there was no autism in the unvaccinated group.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“But a little caveat. There were 3 cases in the Vaccine-Friendly Plan, of children who were starting to show autistic-like symptoms such as decreased eye contact and language delay,” shares Dr. Paul Thomas. “Anytime I would see any delay; I would immediately stop further vaccines. I wish doctors and family practitioners would follow that principle.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas also reports that three kids in the Vaccine-Friendly Plan and five kids in the vaccinated group returned to normal. This was after Dr. Paul Thomas stopped administering the rest of the vaccines.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Hepatitis Vaccine<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas believes that Hepatitis A Vaccine is unnecessary. In fact, Dr. Paul Thomas has not encountered a Hepatitis A case in his entire medical career. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>For children, in particular, Dr. Paul Thomas says Hepatitis A is a benign, mild, cold, flu-like illness. It is harmless and apparently, we develop a natural immunity to it. Hence, we do not need a vaccine for it. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas recalls that it was around 2001 that doctors were giving Hepatitis B  vaccine to teenagers. Years before that, the vaccine was only given to healthcare workers. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>So scientifically speaking, Dr. Paul Thomas says it made no sense injecting a newborn.  This is because babies have an immature immune system and it is unnecessary to vaccinate them with a vaccine preventing a disease that they won’t see until they become teenagers.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“We already know from all sorts of vaccine research that the younger you are, you get less of a protective antibody response,” said Dr. Paul Thomas. “This is why we do all these boosters for these childhood vaccines because we get such a weak response when we’re very young.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Chicken Pox Vaccine<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas says the whole situation surrounding chicken pox is tragic. He shares that before 1965, we all had the chicken pox. We mainly had to be around people who had chicken pox to boost our immunity. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Since we had this vaccine program, the medical field then started adding a booster around 1995. Dr. Paul Thomas said the vaccine did pretty well for a long time. Shingles were in fact, only something that old people got. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Before the chicken pox vaccine was instituted as a national program, we had about 50 deaths per year in the U.S. from chicken pox. Not many died due to shingles. Now, it’s the opposite. There are fewer deaths from chicken pox and more from shingles. Shingles even occur in children now.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Big Bucks<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>We all know that the medical field is a lucrative business. Pharmaceutical companies earn a lot from selling medication and doctors are often willing to grab the chance to earn a lot from the medication they prescribe to patients.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Two big incentives are pushing doctors and hospitals to do vaccines. One is financial, and the other is quality measures,” reveals Dr. Paul Thomas. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>He adds, “The markup on vaccines is as low as $1. But an average of $15 per shot is given to doctors, not counting all the child visits. Other states have a $200 per patient bonus by having children fully-vaccinated.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Herd Immunity<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas says that in medical school, students are taught that by vaccinating the population, you are protecting everybody including those not yet vaccinated. In some cases, this is true. But in most cases, Dr. Paul Thomas says it’s completely wrong. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas cites Hepatitis B as an example wherein the herd immunity is not applicable. Essentially, you can’t have herd immunity if the vaccine is not working. But some data shows vaccinated people can still carry and transmit disease. So, they are contributing to infecting the herd. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Another study shows results of patients who had the influenza vaccine. Apparently, when a vaccinated person coughs, Dr. Paul Thomas says they are in fact, emitting 630% more influenza than an unvaccinated infected person. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Vaccines trigger an antibody response to one particular thing. It does nothing to boost the rest of your immune system,” Dr. Paul Thomas said. “The only way to know if the vaccine is truly improving our health would be through long-term studies, comparisons, and health outcomes over several years.”<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>PHOI<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas has started a registry, the PHOI, to gather more information about vaccines.  It is also an excellent resource to find out what are the safe vaccines.  <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“It’s not for everybody to sign up. Because to be a part of this registry, you have to be at present, in my clinic with a newborn. We are only registering newborns, and we are going to track their health for 18 years,” said Dr. Paul Thomas.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas is happy to announce that there’s also another clinic in Houston that’s coming on board plus a couple more mainstream clinics. The goal is to look at all parameters that might affect health outcome. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“There are plenty of things we can do, and a lot has to do with having a balanced immune system,” said Dr. Paul Thomas. “It’s not how well you vaccinate that determines your health. It’s how balanced your immune system is.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Immunosuppressant<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas shares that immunosuppressant drugs are one of the top 5 moneymakers in the United States. However, immunosuppressant drugs put one at risk for infection and cancer. As a result, Dr. Paul Thomas believes we’re creating a perfect storm by destroying our body’s immunity and triggering inflammation.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“We need to eat real food, get extra vitamin D and reduce stress. Our body is wired for fight or flight because our hormones set it up,” said Dr. Paul Thomas. “Make sure to get enough sleep, exercise, fix the biome, get healthy bacteria in the gut and eat organic foods to bring down the toxic load.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Be Informed<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Speaking of toxic load, you’d be surprised to know how much toxins and heavy metals we have in our body. There was a <a href="http://www.learntruehealth.com/summit">Heavy Metals Summit</a> recently, and I’m inviting listeners to sign up to check out the fantastic speakers participating in the summit.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“Remind listeners to let parents be parents. Insist on informed consent. It means you’re told the risk, the benefits and alternatives to the procedure. Then your choice needs to be honored,” said Dr. Paul Thomas. “Secondly, we need more platforms to get the word out there. Every person has to go on this journey. And have the courage to reject junk science.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas, M.D., F.A.A.P., received his M.D. from Dartmouth Medical School and completed his pediatric residency at the University of California San Diego. He is a board-certified fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, board-certified in Integrative and Holistic Medicine, and a diplomat of the American Board of Addiction Medicine. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas taught residents and medical students from 1988 to 1993, practiced at Westside Pediatrics from 1993 to 2008 and opened his practice in 2008 Integrative Pediatrics, where he currently serves over 13,000 patients in the Portland, Oregon metro area. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dr. Paul Thomas is the Founder of PHOI (Pediatric Health Outcomes Initiative).

Being healthy is not just about being physically fit. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>So, for today’s episode, my fantastic guest, Ned Wolf, will teach us some actionable steps on developing consciousness. Because we need to pay attention to our mental, spiritual, emotional and energetic aspects as well.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Starting Point<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Initially working as a journalist and writer in the corporate world, Ned Wolf was in his mid-30s when he received an award. During the ceremony, he recalled that a member of the audience stood up and asked him what was he going to do with the rest of his life.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“I said that if I have to do this the rest of my life, I’m going to go out and shoot myself. I was aghast at what I said,” shares Ned Wolf. “Within six months, I left the corporate world and went back to school to study Holistic health. My subconscious said that I could not devote my talent to supporting organizations when in my heart the greater dream was to support individuals.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Ned Wolf further explains that he decided to pursue a career in Holistic health to gain a clearer perspective of how the world exists. A big part of his work is helping people in developing consciousness so that they can become better versions of themselves.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>We Are Energy<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Ned Wolf says that every person is a powerful collection of energy that is essential in developing consciousness.  We are also the most powerful manipulator of energy. Now, if only we can incorporate that awareness into the question of health, the whole process of healing becomes much simpler. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“We are intimately connected with what causes health, what causes the well-being or what detracts from it. But we don’t realize that our attitude has something to do with the results of our healing,” said Ned Wolf.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Roadblocks<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Ned Wolf says that when we do not see the importance of developing consciousness of our body’s energy, blame and self-pity become stumbling blocks of healing. He says blame and self-pity blocks accepting responsibility for the incredible power we have as beings of energy and spirit.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>I experienced that when I was a teenager when I got money from my dad’s change drawer to buy junk food. Overwhelmed with self-pity, I blamed others for my misery. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>That is why Ned Wolf advises taking steps in developing consciousness to tap into our awareness.  We then would be able to recognize our potential. Being aware of what we can do produces positive energy from within us.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“We must accept that our consciousness is incredibly powerful because we get whatever we concentrate upon,” explains Ned Wolf. “It is our choices, our thoughts, our beliefs, our feelings that are creating our state of health.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>What Is Dowsing <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>So how do we shift perceptions to create better health? Ned Wolf recommends dowsing. Dowsing uses a pendulum or other tools.  It is a process that aims to help us access intuitional knowledge. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Ned Wolf first learned of dowsing while he was living in Australia. Here he learned how to identify an herb for healing through an aboriginal way. Apparently, dowsing is a tradition that dates back to thousands of years ago.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Aborigines are taught to go out into the bushland focusing their consciousness of the illness or medical problems they want to resolve. They do this by listening to the plants sing,” Ned Wolf shares. “When they hear the plant that sings the loudest, that’s the plant to use for helping remedy a particular problem.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>It makes sense.  Because these are pure intuitive skills that we are capable of maximizing if we just learn the art of developing consciousness. It’s all about training the body to listen and training your conscious mind to listen to your body. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Knowledge that is not limited by time and space perception. But rather access to other dimensions of the self,” adds Ned Wolf.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Dowsing For Healing <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Ned Wolf says dowsing is indeed a powerful tool for healing. It essentially acknowledges the access to inner sources of knowledge. Dowsing also strengthens intuition and intellect so that they can work in partnership.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“In our world, we often get caught up in the battle between intuition and intellect. They seem to be at odds with one another,” said Ned Wolf. “But as beings of energy and beings of spirit, the intuition and the intellect were meant to work with each other.”<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Our Powerful Brain<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>I am reminded of this fascinating book called<strong> </strong><strong><a href= "http://amzn.to/2BKv4iG" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Holographic Universe</a></strong> by Michael Talbot. The book explains that the brain is not the only place where we store information. Apparently, our memories are stored holographically through our entire body and nervous system.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>The Holographic Universe book is filled with many examples how our body works.  We have a limiting belief system that we’ve adopted because we were taught that way. But our body is so much more capable of many other things.  I highly recommend this book to expand your knowledge. It’s mind-blowing!<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“That’s one of the great gifts of dowsing. It helps access that broader source of information. The placebo effect is that unexplained ability that we can measure,” said Ned Wolf. “People who had brain injury do not respond at all to the placebo effect.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Taking Accountability<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Ned Wolf says that we are responsible for our well-being. He believes one of the great gifts of Holistic health is to help people dealing with illness realize that they can open their minds.  They can also experience greater well-being in the process.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“One of the realms that I like to operate is helping clients realize that it is how they use their consciousness that’s producing their state of health or lack of it. For example, our dreams have information on how we can heal.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Dreams and after-death experiences highlight the power of energy and consciousness. But Ned Wolf says we do not need to die to realize this aspect of our existence. Understanding the afterlife can be complicated but Ned Wolf mentioned that philosopher and author <strong><a href= "http://lifeafterlife.com/life-after-life-experience/books-by-raymond-moody/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Dr. Raymond Moody’s books</a></strong> on the subject are an excellent resource.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“We do not need to die to get to this place. Sometimes people need to work with their attitude to discover how they’re blocking their dreams,” said Ned Wolf. “Part of the growth is being able to accept the dark places within ourselves, not condemn them but rather recognize there’s something that seeks to heal.”<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Radionics <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Ned Wolf also mentioned that radionics is another tool that can we can benefit from. Radionics is an alternative medicine claiming that diseases can be diagnosed and treated with an energy that is similar to radio waves.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“It is also similar to Homeopathy. It’s a study on how particular frequencies affect imbalances, emotional congestions or unresolved emotional conflicts,” Ned Wolf explained. “Radionics also helps an organ in the body release that unresolved conflict.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Actionable Steps For Healing<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> </h3> <p>Ned Wolf believes that the first and foremost step to healing is learning to love yourself. Especially that part that is in ill-health. It is also important to be aware that as long as we do not know the power of our consciousness, chances of healing are much more remote.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Learn to adjust so we can use consciousness constructively. Self-reflecting is also important,” advises Ned Wolf. “Physical imbalance can also mean we are using consciousness expressing vibrations of hate. And hate causes destruction. So take out judgment, self-condemnation, and self-punishment.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Ned Wolf again mentions dowsing.  This is because dowsing is a natural state where our consciousness connects with the consciousness of the cells in the body. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“If we can allow that possibility to exist, we can start using those channels and listen when the body speaks to us,” Ned Wolf said.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Spiritual Mentoring<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Ned Wolf does offer spiritual mentoring for people who are engaged in the process of supporting others in their healing. I advise checking out his amazing website to have access to his books, videos, and blog where you will learn so much about the power of healing.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Speaking of mentoring, I’m also offering an online program to help you end your anxiety. I have spent 14 months collecting information on removing anxiety, and I’m giving it to you for free! Link to my <strong><a href="https://www.freeyouranxiety.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Free Your Anxiety</a></strong> webinar so you can end your worry and control your fear from this day forward.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Ned Wolf wrote his first book when he was seven years old.

It’s not much of a surprise anymore since a lot of studies have shown the benefit of eating a plant-based diet. To tell us more about clean protein, I have plant-based diet advocate and book author Kathy Freston as my guest today. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Different Lifestyle<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>You’d be surprised how Kathy Freston’s diet choices are so different today compared to when she was growing up. Kathy Freston grew up in Georgia, and like any average kid, she loved BBQ ribs, pizza, and burgers. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“It’s funny how you keep evolving as a human being. And then the next right step kind of occurs to you. As I was writing the third book, I added in work, volunteerism, meditation and different aspects of wellness,” recalls Kathy Freston.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Rising To The Challenge<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></h3> <p>She also said that as she was researching and working on things, Kathy Freston realized she didn’t have much awareness at all about food. She, in fact, felt like a hypocrite. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Because I was encouraging people to wake up and think about aspects of their life that could make them more conscious and more empowered yet I wasn’t doing that in my eating,” said Kathy Freston.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>As a result, Kathy Freston challenged herself. She started looking at the repercussions of her food choices, what it did to her body, health, environment, and what its effects on animals. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Rude Awakening<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kathy Freston says she initially associated protein to animal protein. But because she wanted to know more about how it’s produced, that started her journey. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“I realized the protein I was consuming was harmful to my body. It was also contributing to a lot of environmental problems,” said Kathy Freston. “Included in the problems are soil degradation, cutting down rainforests, creating climate change gases, polluting water, using up a lot of water and animal cruelty<strong>. </strong><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Aside from that, Kathy Freston’s father died at age 63 due to melanoma and diabetes—diseases which run in the family. Her male cousin, on the other hand, died from breast cancer. That started her drive and obsessed with preventing cancer and diabetes. Lastly, because she’s entirely in love with her dog, the thought of animal slaughter likewise helped motivate Kathy Freston to change her lifestyle. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“All of these things factor into me being a clean protein activist. It’s a health issue, environmental issue, and ethical issue,” said Kathy Freston. “Little by little, I leaned towards becoming this person who no longer consumed animal protein.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>The 12 Amino Acids Daily Requirement<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Contrary to what people think, it is possible to get your daily requirement of amino acids from a plant-based diet. Kathy Freston says delicious combinations include beans, rice, corn tortillas, salsa, avocados and salads. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>However, Kathy Freston says the most important thing to focus on is finding out what is in the protein you are eating. Some of the questions you can ask yourself are the following:<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <ul> <li>How much cholesterol goes along with the protein?</li> <li>Is the protein I’m consuming inflammatory in my body?</li> <li>How many pathogens or antibiotics might be lurking within the tissue?</li> <li>What kind of damage did the making of that protein do to our land and water? </li> <li>Does it add to climate change? </li> </ul> <h3>Importance Of Fiber<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>According to Kathy Freston, just because the food is full of protein, doesn’t mean it’s clean for the body or the planet. So rather than asking where we get our protein, Kathy Freston says we should be more conscious of where we get our fiber. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Fiber acts like a scrub brush. It pushes the gunk and the toxicity out of your body. It keeps your weight down and belly feeling full. It also slows down the release of glucose,” said Kathy Freston. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>So basically, if your protein doesn’t have fiber in it, it’s not cleaning your body. Proteins that are devoid of fiber are also loaded with fat and cholesterol. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Benefits of Eating Clean Protein<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Clean protein tends to be plant-based, and the old proteins tend to come from animals. Kathy Freston says studies show the body works harder to digest meat and people who have a plant-based diet are happier and have a much stronger immune system.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“I think it’s been 13 years since I had the flu and the blood labs are doing good. Research shows that as we get into our 60s and 70s, people eating a plant-based diet are likely to have very favorable results,” Kathy Freston said.<strong> </strong><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Kathy Freston’s Typical Diet<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>If you think a plant-based diet is monotonous, you’re in for a real treat. Kathy Freston attests that experimenting with cooking for friends and family is the fun thing about having a plant-based diet. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>For those who want to try, here are Kathy Freston’s typical daily food choices:<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p><strong>    Breakfast  </strong></p> <ul> <li>Plant-based yogurt with chopped apple and walnuts</li> <li>Oatmeal with almonds and soy milk</li> <li>Smoothie with coconut water and all organic frozen broccoli, frozen pineapples, frozen strawberries, and protein powder. For plant-based protein powder, make sure it’s plant-based and not whey.  </li> </ul> <p>“Whey is not a grain. It’s dairy. I like pea protein. It has a smooth taste, easy to digest and low on the glycemic index,” said Kathy Freston. “I also like it sweetened with Stevia. Some prefer soy or rice protein and some like hemp protein, which is okay.”  </p> <p><strong>    Lunch </strong></p> <ul> <li>Sauteed tofu over rice and salad<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> </li> </ul> <p><strong>    Dinner </strong></p> <ul> <li>Rice with beer beans, cream of broccoli soup</li> <li>Arugula salad with pears, pistachios, sliced onions and tomatoes </li> </ul> <h3>Food Myths<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Most people think that going on a plant-based diet means you’ll go hungry most of the time. Some are even hesitant; thinking diets are restrictive.  On the contrary, Kathy Freston says a plant-based diet can be both filling and delicious.  </p> <p>“I eat really rich hearty food. That’s the fiber that stays in your system and fills your belly. It makes you feel satisfied,” assures Kathy Freston.  </p> <p>I so much agree with Kathy Freston. Do try out this recipe of mine. I have made these recipes for some friends, and they love it!   </p> <p>First, chop beets and saute. Add chopped cabbage, Turkish seasoning, and salt. Put the lid on and cook on low heat. Once done, serve immediately.   </p> <p>Another recipe is cutting some beet greens, mix with two cans of chickpeas, a can coconut milk with curry, turmeric, black pepper, and garlic. Then let it simmer. Let the moisture sit until the sauce thickens. You can also make some quinoa pasta to eat with it. It’s so good; even the kids kept going back for more!  </p> <h3>Other Sources Of Vegan Protein </h3> <p> Kathy Freston says she’s a big fan of beans because they have fiber, iron, and antioxidants. Beans are also low on the glycemic index. Plus, they are gluten-free!  </p> <p>“Multiple studies show that beans lower cholesterol, balance blood sugar and promote digestive regularity. They don’t have all the saturated fats, cholesterol, toxins and other harmful ingredients. That’s why I love beans,” said Kathy Freston.  </p> <p>Speaking of vegan protein, I was skeptical at first. However, I changed my mind after interviewing <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/raw-vegan-athlete/">raw vegan athlete Suzanne Mcgee on Episode 41</a></strong>. She has been vegan for years and professional tennis player. Most of her proteins are from pumpkin seeds, and it has not been a detriment to her health.  </p> <p>“Seeds have more protein than nuts. They have more minerals, less saturated fats and high in most amino acids. Some are a good source of omega fatty acids like chia seeds and flax,” Kathy Freston said.  </p> <h3>Saving Money<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kathy Freston says you’ll be saving a lot of money when you embrace a plant-based diet. Whole grains and beans are cheap, yet they are full of fiber so you’ll feel full and satisfied.   </p> <p>According to her, these are the staples of the populations around the world. In Mexico and South America, they would eat rice and beans with tortillas and avocados. In China, there’s tofu, vegetables, rice, small fish, or lentil, rice and vegetables in India. These populations are by no means wealthy, and yet they don’t have the disease of the more affluent societies.   </p> <p>“So the true cost of eating animal food is more than what you get at the grocery store. If you think about the annual cost of treating diseases in the U.S., it’s a trillion dollars a year and healthcare,” said Kathy Freston. “Obesity-related healthcare will reach 350 billion by 2018. Heart disease will cost more than 500 billion dollars annually.”  </p> <p>She adds, “Cancer and diabetes are traced to too much animal protein. And they cost nations a lot of tax money.”  </p> <p>In effect, you become less productive. Apparently, Kathy Freston says it’s a lot of government complexity because meat is subsidized.   </p> <p>“They give breaks to animal agriculture companies by giving them cheap grains. And cheap grains make for cheap meat,” said Kathy Freston. “Cheap meat, eggs, and cheese are fed to our kids, so these artificially low prices hurt our health in the long term.”  </p> <h3>Smooth Transition<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>It’s not going to be easy but Kathy Freston assures changing to a plant-based diet is worth it.  Bottomline, it’s all about knowing what you eat.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>For example, Kathy Freston says one egg roughly has 3 grams of protein. And that’s not a ton of protein compared to one cup of lentils which has 18 grams proteins. Plus, the cholesterol from one egg is more than what you should get. That is why in the spirit of being ethical, it is right to give up eggs.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Kathy Freston also says that part of the process is to keep moving forward. And be open to alternative food choices.   </p> <p>“Beano is a good brand of digestive enzymes. It helps to digest beans and all the delicious plant-based foods. All the fiber going through your system gets the toxicity out of your body,” Kathy Freston said<strong>.</strong><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>What To Do When You Travel<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kathy Freston says traveling is not a problem since more restaurants now have plant-based menus. Some even bring their food like seeds.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>She also suggests using the Happy Cow app for a list of good places to eat. Mexican food is always a safe choice.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Clean Protein Recipes<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kathy Freston has a great compilation of clean protein recipes in her Clean Protein book. There are recipes using black-eyed peas, stews, and even lentil waffles!<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>There are also contributions from celebrity chefs like recipes for sloppy joes, tofu chorizo and spicy smashed lemon chickpeas which is Kathy Freston’s favorite.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Blue Zones<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kathy Freston’s boyfriend happens to be Dan Beuttner, the New York Times bestselling author of<strong> <a href= "https://bluezones.com/services/speaking/dan-buettner/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Blue Zones</a></strong>. Apparently, he discovered five places in the world—the Blue Zones, where the healthiest people live and have long lives.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“He influences me all the time. The Blue Zones include Sardinia in Italy, Loma Linda in California, Okinawa in Japan and Costa Rica. A common thread is that they eat a largely plant-based diet,” said Kathy Freston.  </p> <h3>Kathy Freston’ Books<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Kathy Freston has several books that are excellent references on eating healthy. Clean Protein addresses all the protein issues. The Lean, on the other hand, is her second favorite book which provides you with a 30-day meal plan.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>There’s also the Book of Veganish, which is not a book about being vegan. Kathy Freston says it is a book about determining what kind of protein is suitable for you, for your values, for your health, and for the planet. So check it out!<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3><span data-ccp-props="{}">Bio </span></h3> <p><em>Kathy </em><em>Freston</em><em> believes that clean eating (and clean proteins, in particular!) is not only good for individual health and wellness but is also much better for the planet as a whole.

221 Fix Your Period, Menstrual Cycle, Fertility, PCOS, Endometriosis, Estrogen Dominance, Birth Control, and Balance Your Hormones Naturally with Nicole Jardim and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Patreon.com/learntruehealth</p> <p><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Menstrual Cycle </strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/menstrual-cycle"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/menstrual-cycle</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Menstrual cycle and how to balance our hormones is something every woman should know. Studies show that balanced hormones are also connected to our mental health and longevity. So my guest today, Nicole Jardim will teach us exactly how to take care of ourselves especially during our menstrual cycle.</p> <h3>Great Childhood</h3> <p>Nicole Jardim says she had a great childhood. But when she was 11 years old, her dad suddenly passed away. It turned her world upside down.</p> <p>Around 14 or 15 years old, Nicole Jardim had no idea why she suddenly developed significant period problems. Her mom experienced the same thing until her 20s, so she didn’t think her menstrual cycle was amiss.</p> <h3>Heavy Periods</h3> <p>Nicole Jardim recalls that one of her major menstrual problems was having heavy periods. Then suddenly her menstrual cycle would halt and come only every three to four months. She continued this way for the next four years during her teenage years.</p> <p>There were times that it would give her terrible cramps and unable to go to school. Finally, at around 18 years old, she decided to go to an ob-gyn doctor to discuss her menstrual cycle problem. That doctor recommended that Nicole Jardim start taking birth control pills because that was the solution in conventional medicine.</p> <h3>Effects Of Taking Birth Control Pills</h3> <p>Upon taking birth control pills, the menstrual pain subsided and Nicole Jardim’s periods only lasted around two days. Gone are the days of heavy menstrual periods.</p> <p>But Nicole Jardim’s hormones swung from one end of the spectrum to the other. It turned out she was estrogen-dominant and had low levels of sex hormones. It was like at pre-menopausal level by the time Nicole Jardim went off the pill in her early 20s.</p> <p>“By that time, I was having serious health problems. I had serious gut issues, and my hair was falling. Then I had melasma all over my face and experienced UTIs and yeast infections,” recalls Nicole Jardim. </p> <h3>Seeing An Acupuncturist</h3> <p>Because of her numerous health issues, Nicole Jardim ended up seeing an acupuncturist. After an initial consultation, the acupuncturist told her that the birth control pills caused all her menstrual cycle problems.</p> <p>Eventually, she got off the pill, and her health did improve. Nicole Jardim finally realized she wanted to learn more about women’s health and understand more about the female body.</p> <h3>Institute For Integrative Nutrition</h3> <p>During her period of research, Nicole Jardim discovered the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). However, they were only doing live courses in New York City at the time. And with Nicole Jardim living in Florida, it initially seemed impossible for her to enroll.</p> <p>After meeting a friend who was a graduate of IIN and teaching Holistic Nutrition, Nicole Jardim finally decided to move to New York City to go to the school. Luckily, he husband was supportive of her decision. Hence, Nicole Jardim attended her first class in 2010.</p> <p>Later on, after her apprenticeship, Nicole Jardim realized that she genuinely wanted to pursue a career in women’s health. It became a life mission for her to help women cope with their health issues, especially about menstrual periods.</p> <h3>There’s More To Nutrition</h3> <p>“One thing I learned is how food is connected to our hormones and our period,” said Nicole Jardim.</p> <p>Apparently, there is so much to learn about food and nutrition. I’ve had a few medical doctors on the show who said they pay so much for their education, such that they are made to think they are taught everything there is to know about healing, health, and nutrition.</p> <p>And in over eight years of education, they only have one class on nutrition. Hence, they think that is all they need to know about the subject.</p> <h3>Current State Of Women’s Health</h3> <p>Nicole Jardim thinks that one of the most significant problems of women is they are right now under an unprecedented amount of physical, emotional, psychological stress. Apparently, we’re at a breaking point already. So we have to figure out some way to live in the world as it is right now.</p> <p>“When we’re in the state of chronic overstimulation, what happens is, our brains are being hijacked. And what that looks like is we have issues like blood sugar roller coaster, food sensitivity or gut inflammation,” said Nicole Jardim. “We end up in this chronic state of fight or flight. Our bodies are constantly in the alarm mode.” </p> <h3>Bioidentical Hormones</h3> <p>When it comes to having hormones that are regulated or imbalanced, Nicole Jardim thinks that you have first to figure out the root cause. One way is looking into the food you are eating. You also have to figure out your chronic overstimulation.</p> <p>“There’s a lot of different factors that you have to address before jumping into a hormone replacement therapy,” said Nicole Jardim.</p> <p>Some of you may have heard of Dr. John Lee. He was the pioneer of bioidentical progesterone. His work is outstanding. Regarding bone density, he was able to reverse osteoporosis with bioidentical progesterone. Unfortunately, he already passed away from a heart attack in 2003.</p> <h3>Success Stories</h3> <p>Nicole Jardim has earned a lot of praise from clients who have all benefited from her programs to improve their reproductive health and fixed their hormone issues. Some women suffering from infertility and PCOS have identified the root cause of their health problem after signing up for<strong> <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/menstrual-cycle/nicolejardim.com/programs">Nicole Jardim’s Fix Your Period Course</a></strong>.</p> <p>“Every woman who comes to me doesn’t have a clue about what is going on with her body. She doesn’t understand what ovulation is or why she gets her period and so many other things,” reveals Nicole Jardim. “It’s a serious problem. So I first have women understand their bodies and the phases of their menstrual cycle.” </p> <h3>Changing Diets</h3> <p>I know you’ve heard it again and again. Diet makes a big difference in improving health. Nicole Jardim says it can be overwhelming, but the secret is to take baby steps towards changing your diet.</p> <p>“Think about all the green vegetables in the world, and choose a few of them that you love. And start to have that every day of your diet,” advises Nicole Jardim. “So many women did that and had amazing changes.”</p> <p>These vegetables are critical to women’s health because they contain compounds that help reduce estrogen dominance. They help your body produce estrogen better. Nicole Jardim says two to three cups of vegetables a day is an ideal amount. Some vegetables include kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and broccoli, etc.</p> <p>Nicole Jardim also advises watching our fat intakes and consume coconut oil, coconut butter, animal proteins, fatty fish, nuts, and seeds. Consequently, Nicole Jardim says when we’re not giving out body enough nutrients, we will be unable to ovulate consistently.</p> <p>Do try out Nicole Jardim’s recipe for pumpkin seeds and flax. Take one tablespoon of each, put it into a smoothie, salad, soup or breakfast food. You can also grind up the seeds before ingesting it. You can also use sunflower seeds.</p> <h3>Changing Lifestyle</h3> <p>Nicole Jardim also suggests creating a routine at night by limiting phone use and watching TV. It is also advisable to restrict the use of the computer. Using essential oils also helps.</p> <p>“What you need to be doing is winding down and optimize our sleep. That will drastically change how we function and how resilient we are to stresses in our life,” Nicole Jardim said.</p> <p>Nicole Jardim is a Certified Women’s Health + Functional Nutrition Coach with a specialty in hormonal and reproductive health. In 2010, she trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a health coach.</p> <p>Shortly after that, Nicole Jardim completed a 3-month apprenticeship at a women’s holistic health center in New York City. She then did a 1-year training program with Dr. Sara Gottfried, MD (author of <strong><a href= "http://amzn.to/2DW1sfC" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Hormone Cure</a></strong> & <strong><a href= "http://amzn.to/2EaSjmU" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Hormone Reset Diet</a></strong>).</p> <p>Nicole Jardim followed that up with an additional 1-year women’s health and nutrition coaching certification program with the Integrative Women’s Health Institute. In 2016, she completed a 1-year training program with the Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine. And finally, she is pursuing her national certification to become a licensed health coach.</p> <h3>Get Connected With Nicole Jardim!</h3> <p><strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/menstrual-cycle/nicolejardim.com">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/nicolemjardim" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://instagram.com/nicolemjardim" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://twitter.com/NicoleMJardim" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Readings by Nicole Jardim</h3> <h3><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2Ext8sl" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom</a> by Dr. Christiane Northrup</strong></h3> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0553386735&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0553386735" alt="" /></p> <h3><br /> <a href="http://amzn.to/2BPXpQ4" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>The Period Repair Manu</strong><strong>a</strong>l</a> by Dr. Lara Briden</h3> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1975926773&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1975926773" alt="" /></p> <h3><br /> <strong>Recommended Links:</strong></h3> <p><strong><a href="https://www.johnleemd.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Dr. John Lee Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.johnleemd.com/cgi-johnleemd/sb/ss_mb.cgi?storeid=*161419c91a8840620749a04f38&ss_parm=A8c74cd4383477cbeceed7e87c81ab39c" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Dr. John Lee on Progesterone</a></strong></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Become A Health Coach</a></strong><br /> <br /> <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Learn More About The Institute for Integrative Nutrition's Health Coaching Certification Program by checking out these four resources:</span><br /> <br /> 1) Integrative Nutrition's Curriculum Guide:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmUMxb">http://geti.in/2cmUMxb</a><br /> <br /> 2) The IIN Curriculum Syllabus:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2miXTej">http://geti.in/2miXTej</a><br /> <br /> 3) Module One of the IIN curriculum:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmWPl8">http://geti.in/2cmWPl8</a><br /> <br /> 4) Get three free chapters of Joshua Rosenthal's book:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cksU87">http://geti.in/2cksU87</a></p> <p>Watch my little video on how to become a Certified Health Coach!</p> <p><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI</a></p> <p> <strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/summit" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Heavy Metal Summit:</strong></a></p> <p>http://learntruehealth.com/summit</p> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></span></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Join the Learn True Health Community & Support Us on Patreon!

More and more parents are now wary of having their child vaccinated.  My guest today, April Boden is a mother of a vaccine-injured child and has another child who developed autism because of vaccines.  In this episode, she narrates her journey as well as the benefits of homeschooling her children. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>The Truth About Vaccines<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Before we dive into the episode, let me invite all you listeners to sign up for Ty Bollinger’s,<strong> <a href= "http://www.learntruehealth.com/vaccines">The Truth About Vaccines documentary series</a></strong>.  Running from January 25 to 31, you’ll have free access to the videos. You may sign up for the series at <strong><a href= "http://www.learntruehealth.com/vaccines">www.learntruehealth.com/vaccines</a></strong>.  <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>The revelations may be alarming. But the whole point of the documentary series is to provide valuable information on how you can take control of your health. If you happen to listen to this episode beyond the showing dates, you can still sign up and be informed once they rerelease the videos for free.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>I thought it was an excellent opportunity to mention Ty Bollinger because my guest today, April Boden, was incidentally featured in his documentary series last September 2016. So check out the series!<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>First Baby<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden turned into an anti-vaccine advocate due to her personal experience. Starting with her oldest son who was sickly when he was younger, April Boden first shared her apprehensions over vaccines to her doctor.  <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>April Boden brought up the information she heard that vaccines, mainly MMR could cause autism. However, her doctor said there was no truth to that rumor, and so April Boden proceeded in having her oldest son vaccinated on schedule.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>It turns out that her oldest son became sickly because of vaccines and even had to have gallbladder surgery when he was seven months old. His chronic sickness was the reason why April Boden decided not to continue with the rest of his vaccine shots.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Second Baby<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden’s second son Aydan was born two years after. Initially a healthy baby, he was already walking at ten months old. He already started talking at a year old, but that was eventually erased after he was given vaccine shots.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>At a little over a year old, Aydan was given MMR, phemmoccocl and chicken pox vaccine all on the same day.  It was also the day when Aydan stopped talking.  Truly a parents’ worse nightmare.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>April Boden recalls that they started to see a change in Aydan right away. He got sick, got a high fever for several days and began to act differently after he came out of his sickness.  Then he started walking on his toes and had erratic language.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Previously, he had just been starting to talk, so the next time we went to the doctor, I voiced my concerns,” recalls April Boden. “However, the doctor said Aydan was well within the normal range, so she went ahead and gave him his vaccines that day. And that was it. Boom. The language was gone.” <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Gut Issues<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Aydan started to have gut and diarrhea issues and was having a hard time sleeping at night shortly after getting his vaccine shots. Unfortunately, April Boden said that Aydan’s doctor merely shrugged it off as going through a phase.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Half a year later, people close to the family started voicing out their concerns over Aydan’s development. Going back to the same doctor for a consultation, that’s when Aydan was suspected by the doctor to have autism. That doctor, however, just evaded the question of whether vaccines indeed caused Aydan’s autism.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Early Coping Years <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden was advised by Aydan’s doctor to sign up at the Regional Center run by the State of California.  They have psychologists and programs for early intervention therapies for people. Apparently, going through a treatment with a private doctor prolongs medical treatment due to insurance issues.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“He was about two and a half at the time. When we started the early intervention, he had quite a few hours of intensive therapy. Then he started to regain his language. And we were excited to see some of the improvements,” said April Boden.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Another Obstacle<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>However, California law states that once a child turns three years old, the Regional Center turns over the bulk of the intervention therapy to the school district. That gave April Boden a new reason to worry about since she was not sure if Aydan was ready to go to school.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“The school assessed him and said he was ready. However, part of the requirement was that they needed Aydan to be vaccinated. So we went ahead despite my reluctance.  We did it, and all the stuff that we regained in therapy was gone,” April Boden said.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <h3>Being Dropped From Insurance<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>When Aydan started school, April Boden said her child started displaying unusual behavior. Such as banging his head, getting aggressive and biting is own arm. At this point, April Boden decided that enough is enough. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“So at this point, I said no more Jedi mindset. This is a vaccine injury and started asking the doctor to help me, like running some allergy tests,” said April Boden. “Shortly after, we got a notice that the doctor dropped our insurance and he could no longer see us as a patient.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Worse of all, when April Boden tried to get copies of Aydan’s medical records, the doctor’s office claimed that the documents were sent to archives.  Going to the record archives, that’s when April Boden was told that her son’s medical records were all gone. Not even a court subpoena fazed the doctor to explain where the files went.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>DAN! Protocol <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden said her next step was to turn to DAN! to seek assistance for Aydan’s treatment. DAN! stands for Defeat Autism Now!, and was created by the Autism Research Institute (ARI) in 1995.  Dr. Bernard Rimland established the Autism Research Institute in 1967.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Aydan was given supplementation and was put on a restrictive diet right away. Part of the diet was taking away gluten and dairy products. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“It’s an ongoing thing and a lot easier if you research beforehand and make a sound decision on vaccines than try to undo the damage that’s been done,” said April Boden. </p> <h3>Unvaccinated Daughter<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>On the other hand, April Boden’s daughter is three years old and has never been vaccinated. According to April Boden, there is a significant difference between her daughter and her two vaccinated sons.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“She doesn’t have allergies. After all the research I’ve done over the last ten years on vaccines, I would say that is quite possible that there is a connection,” said April Boden. “It was a good year when my oldest son did not have additional vaccine shots. It probably saved him from getting worse.” <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Another thing that April Boden noticed was that her daughter doesn’t have dark circles under her eyes while both of her sons do. Overall, April Boden describes her daughter as a very happy and very typical child.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Preventative Care for Unvaccinated Children<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden says for her daughter, she just makes sure to wash her hands often and eats a healthy diet. They also try to live in a toxic-free environment. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>She says her daughter so far hasn’t been sick. Although she had cold sores one time, April Boden was able to cure it with natural remedies. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Her immune system is doing everything that it’s supposed to do and I breastfed her for three years,” said April Boden.  </p> <h3>Recommended Solutions <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>For those who have autistic kids, April Boden suggests looking into their diet. Results of diets vary, and although it is not a cure for autism, it makes the kids feel better all around. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>She also says the best thing to do is have a diet that is something the family can stick to as a whole. This way, having foods that an autistic child is not allowed to eat can be avoided. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>April Boden also suggests giving the child probiotics and fermented foods like sauerkraut. Giving them supplements also helps. Not everything is going to work, and it’s best to take it one step at a time. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Son-Rise Program<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden says another solution is to spend time together with your autistic child. Aydan is currently under the<strong> <a href= "http://www.autismtreatmentcenter.org/contents/about_son-rise/what_is_the_son-rise_program.php" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Son-Rise Program</a></strong> which helps families cope with an autistic member of the family.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>Under the program, unique methods are used to treat children and adults who are diagnosed within the autistic spectrum. These include autism spectrum disorders, pervasive developmental disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, etc.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Benefits Of Fermented Foods<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Probiotics can be expensive, so April Boden started making homemade yogurt. The yogurt that she makes at home is the only dairy that Aydan is allowed to have. Apparently, if you ferment cow dairy for 24 hours, you could ferment off most of the lactose. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Since then, she noticed Aydan’s gut health improved significantly. He was also getting less sickly and fewer migraines and headaches. This made Aydan calmer and considerably less hyperactive.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>I do a coconut milk yogurt, and I do a 12 to 18-hour ferment. I learned this from a past guest of mine. Take a good brand of probiotics, crack open five capsules. Then instead of using the yogurt starter, just use the probiotics. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Homeschooling<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden says homeschooling her kids is the best decision she made. All three children are exposed a lot outside the house so training them to be sociable is not a problem. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>It’s beneficial to the family as a whole. Because they can work around her husband’s schedule and spend time together as a family.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“Homeschooling can reduce the stress on the family and the child. Because some of the kids are overstimulated by the school environment. It’s a lot of input for them to regulate themselves all day long. It’s not conducive to their learning,” said April Boden.  </p> <p>Aydan in particular, receives one-on-one homeschooling therapies in the house, 14 hours a week and spread over four days. They go to the clinic for more treatment three times a week. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Furthermore, a high school volunteer comes by the house once a week to play with Aydan for an hour. April Boden also spends extra homeschooling time alone with Aydan every night to practice things like writing.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Trivium Education<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Before we had a child, we came across the <strong><a href= "http://www.autismtreatmentcenter.org/contents/about_son-rise/what_is_the_son-rise_program.php" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Trivium Education</a>.</strong> It is an education system that teaches kids how to do critical thinking. Kids as young as seven years old can be on the program. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Apparently, there was an entire homeschool community attached to the program. It also led to the non-vaccine community. Hence I got more interested in what the Trivium was all about. It made homeschooling easier.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Helpful Resources<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>April Boden strongly recommends this book by Susan Bauer called <strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2DZpiu7" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The Well-Trained Mind</a></strong>. She says signing up with the HSLDA organization also helps a lot.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>HSLDA stands for <a href="https://www.hslda.org/about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><strong>Home School Legal Defense Association</strong>.</a> It is a non-profit organization established to help parents fight for their rights as far as education for their children is concerned. They also give homeschooling-related legal advice.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>April Boden also has a blog called Aydan’s Recovery. It chronicles Aydan’s journey as well as all the research April Boden has done over the years. She also has a fantastic podcast called Truther Talk which is worth listening to.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>We have to take steps to protect ourselves.  I’m very interested in homeoprophylaxis, so I’m currently doing that with my family through <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/homeoprophylaxis/">Cilla Whatcott</a></strong> who was my podcast guest twice. The idea is that you can create immunity using homeopathy. It has 90% success rate and no adverse effects.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>I also had Dr. Stephanie Seneff on the show who talked about the connection between vaccines and autism. On <strong><a href= "http://www.triviumeducation.com/the-trivium-and-children/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">episode 89</a></strong>, she shared all the reasons why the MMR vaccine is causing autism so do check out that episode. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>April Boden is an author, wife and homeschooling mother of three children. She started writing about her son, Aydan’s vaccine injury in 2009. Since then she has appeared on several radio talk shows podcast and the docu-series The truth about vaccines with Ty Bollinger. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>April Boden has been running her podcast, <strong><a href= "http://truthertalk.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Truther Talk</a></strong> with her friend, Virstyne Henry discussing Natural Health and healing among other cutting-edge topics since 2011.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Get Connected With April Boden:<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p><strong><a href="https://aydansrecovery.wordpress.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Aydan’s Road To Recovery</a>  </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://truthertalk.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Truther Talk Podcast</a>  </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://m.facebook.com/aydansrecovery/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook – Aydan’s Recovery</a>  </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://m.facebook.com/TrutherTalk/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook – Truther Talk</a>  </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://steemit.com/@truthertalk" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Steemit – Truther Talk</a>  </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://steemit.com/@aydansrecovery" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Steemit – Aydan’s Recovery</a>  </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://twitter.com/TrutherTalk?s=17" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter – Truther Talk</a>  </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://twitter.com/april2438?s=17" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter – April Boden</a>  </strong></p> <h3>Recommended Readings by April Boden<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2DPATJb" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Changing The Course Of Autism</a> by Bryan Jepsen</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1591810612&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1591810612" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2FycY1h" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Breaking The Vicious C</a><a href= "http://amzn.to/2FycY1h" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">y</a><a href="http://amzn.to/2FycY1h" target="_blank" rel="noopener">cle</a> by Elaine Gottschall</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0969276818&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0969276818" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2DQp19F" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Brain That Heals Itself</a> by Norman Doidge</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0143113100&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0143113100" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2FyaBLY" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Impossible Cure </a>by Amy Lansky</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0972751408&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0972751408" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2rVVNEC" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Dissolving Illusions</a> by Suzanne Humphries</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1480216895&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Links You Are Looking For:</span></strong></p> <p><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/summit" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Heavy Metal Summit:</strong></a></p> <p>http://learntruehealth.com/summit</p> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></span></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Join the Learn True Health Community & Support Us on Patreon!

But with more people becoming aware of the consequences of taking drugs, many are turning towards ways to heal mental illness naturally. My guest today, Kathryn Keefer will share her tips in healing mental illness naturally after overcoming her own health obstacles.</p> <h3>Broken Family</h3> <p>Kathryn Keefer shares that her childhood was messy. However, she readily tells people her story. Because it shows people that it is possible not to become a victim of your circumstances.</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer is an identical twin. Along with a younger sister, they initially grew up in Virginia. She recalls spending a lot of time outdoors.</p> <p>Life was good until her dad, who was in the Navy, left the family when Kathryn Keefer was seven years old. The family eventually decided to move to a house that was more manageable to maintain because their old place was too big for a single mother.</p> <p>Both her parents eventually remarried. However, both divorced their second spouses after a few years. </p> <h3>Coping Mechanism</h3> <p>As a child caught in the chaos of a broken family, Kathryn Keefer turned to food for comfort. She and her twin sister Rachel were both were hooked on video games.</p> <p>“Rachel turned to food just a little bit later. She was that classic middle child by trying to keep everyone together. My little sister and I were like cats and dogs,” Kathryn Keefer recalls. “Rachel took on the Mama Bear role. Her rebellious stage was in college.”</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer also remembers having her first panic attack in the 8th grade. She was labeled with mental illness such as depression, anxiety, and OCD. That is why Kathryn Keefer was automatically put on Prozac.</p> <h3>Getting Worse</h3> <p>Kathryn Keefer was 16 years old when her mom divorced her stepdad. She went to beauty school after high school and eventually got married after graduation. Then she got pregnant right away. Now with a new label as a mother, Kathryn Keefer eventually became depressed.</p> <p>After moving to Hawaii, Kathryn Keefer found out she was pregnant again, and the depression became worse. One day, it got so bad that she told herself that she could not keep being depressed.</p> <p>“I was tired, and I was tired of being tired. Then I discovered the self-help world. Fast forward today, that is where it all started,” said Kathryn Keefer.</p> <p>She adds, “I became obsessed with not getting fat. Because I was obsessed with my weight for so long and it consumed everything I did. So I was not healthy at all. I got relatively thin the unhealthy way.”</p> <h3>Waking Up To Realization</h3> <p>Eventually, Kathryn Keefer discovered that she was not a victim of the labels that other people were giving. Everything changed for the better the day Kathryn Keefer realized that she doesn’t have to listen to other people,</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer says that not being defined by labels helped her realize what she needed. She is an advocate for natural heal and says that there are safe ways to get off medication. In her case, she practiced self-awareness and changing how she ate.</p> <p>“Develop a love for real food. You don’t have to change your life overnight. It’s about the small goals that are easy to reach,” explains Kathryn Keefer. “So you can celebrate those victories. Slowly pile on another one until you realize one day that you haven’t consumed processed food or soda.”</p> <h3>Piyo</h3> <p>It is a beach body program that features full body movements and stretching. Kathryn Keefer taught classes for two years in North Carolina.</p> <p>It was not an overnight success for Kathryn Keefer as far as her exercise regimen is concerned. In fact, it was only three years ago that she finally really got into exercising.</p> <p>“Instead of saying, ‘I work out because I’m scared of getting fat,’ I workout because I love myself. You learn to love yourself,” Kathryn Keefer advises. “Find that sweet spot where your heart is just pumping, and you feel incredible. That is your brain releasing dopamine. It brings your heart rate up.”</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer is also a fitness instructor. It’s quite amusing since she says she didn’t start exercising until she was 25 years old.</p> <p>According to Kathryn Keefer, people have a hard time finding the motivation to workout. But she discovered that is not about finding the motivation to start. It is about learning how amazing it is to finish and becoming not addicted to that feeling. </p> <h3>Effects of The Right Diet</h3> <p>Kathryn Keefer believes that most Americans’ sedentary lifestyle was due to having a poor diet. According to her, it plays a significant role in why 1 in 3 Americans is on anti-depressants.</p> <p>“The best form of eating that they discovered for people with mental illness problems is the Paleo diet. I’m not Paleo because my body does not digest meat very well. It’s just an example that we are all different and it is about finding what works best for you,” said Kathryn Keefer.</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer also says that the brain is made of fat. That is why good fats are so vital. She eats an avocado a day and cooks only with unrefined coconut oil and ghee.</p> <p>“Olive oil alone is good, but if you cook olive oil, it oxidizes. So it is not good for cells at all. I also recommend taking Vitamin D supplements, avoid gluten and dairy products,” advised Kathryn Keefer.</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer says this is because gluten is just a protein that makes food stretchy. There are still other amazing choices for food and carbs. Gluten and dairy products, on the other hand, contain elements that are detrimental to the brain because they are inflammatory foods.</p> <h3>Recommended Recipes</h3> <p>I have a fantastic pasta recipe that my family loves, and I know you will, too! Red lentil noodles are made with red lentil flour and can be bought at Trader Joes or any whole foods store. It saves time because you can cook it in batches.</p> <p>Packed with protein, I mix a little salt, ghee, organic tomato sauce with the noodles. It’s like mac and cheese with ketchup. It’s effortless to make and healthy, too! You won’t feel like you’re on a diet because it tastes so good.</p> <p>According to Kathryn Keefer, depriving ourselves is the reason why so many diets fail. Consequently, there are fun ways to make healthy food taste good. Kathryn Keefer does a chickpea recipe made with almond butter. Mixed with garbanzo beans and vanilla, it is a blender recipe that is likewise easy to make.</p> <p>Another one of my favorite recipes is flourless bread. The seed bread is so fibrous because quinoa binds it together. Just soak the quinoa till it’s thick like dough and then mix all the seeds in it and bake it.</p> <p>Once it is baked, cut like long crackers and eat it like a toast. It’s actually like a mix of bread and crackers. Sometimes I put dried fruit in it and melted ghee. Just make sure you drink a lot of water whenever you eat this.</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer, on the other hand, uses beans a lot and her preferred flour is almond. She has also cut back on coffee. Also, try her delicious smoothie!</p> <p>To make Kathryn Keefer’s smoothie, blend carrots, fresh ginger and frozen fruits like mangoes, pineapple or peach. Then mix it with frozen banana, turmeric, a pinch of black pepper, lemon juice and a few drops of stevia.</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer also recommends drinking lemon water out of a stainless or glass bottle first thing in the morning. It keeps the vitamin C levels up and aids in digestion. And because cancer cells do not survive in an alkaline environment, drinking lemon water also prevents cancer.</p> <h3>Tapping</h3> <p>Aside from food and exercise, another thing that helped Kathryn Keefer heal her mental illness is doing meditation, tapping or emotional freedom technique (EFT), and breathing work.</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer learned about tapping from Nick Ortner who is the author of  <strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2Buecbv" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Tapping Solution For Manifesting Your Greatest Self Tapping</a></strong> is applying acupressure to the body.</p> <p>“There’s a nerve that runs right along your stomach and diaphragm. So when you deep belly breathes with your diaphragm, it massages that nerve and calms your nervous system down,” explains Kathryn Keefer.</p> <p>On <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/emotional-freedom-technique/">episode 103</a></strong> of my podcast, I incidentally guested award-winning author Dawson Church, who also expounded on tapping or emotional freedom technique. In the episode, he also mentioned that EFT is also often used for patients with posttraumatic stress disorder.</p> <h3>Finding Gratitude</h3> <p>Another key to getting yourself out of depression is finding ways to be aware. When one is aware of things, the feeling of gratitude envelopes our whole being and leads to happiness.</p> <p>Check out my <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/mental-illness/%20http://learntruehealth.com/michael-weinberger-plan-living/">episodes 54</a></strong> and 166 where Michael Weinberger expounded on <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/happiness-formula">The Happiness Formula</a></strong>. He’s such an inspiration for overcoming his depression and helping people to find happiness by embracing gratitude.</p> <h3>Importance Of Self-Care</h3> <p>Kathryn Keefer also recommends getting enough sleep. Keeping communication lines open with others can also do wonders to improve mental illness. Most of all, she stresses the importance of self-care.</p> <p>“By taking care of yourself, you are in a place mentally and physically to help other people, especially with family. It’s ok to be selfish because it makes you a better parent. You have needs, and they have to be met,” said Kathryn Keefer. </p> <h3>Institute For Integrative Nutrition</h3> <p>I’m so happy that Kathryn Keefer signed up for a course at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition (IIN) after being an avid listener of my podcast. I have had many listeners sign up for classes at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition (IIN). In fact, you get a USD$1,500 off your tuition if you sign up and mention the Learn True Health podcast.</p> <p>I first came to find out about IIN after interviewing Donnie De Santi on <strong><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/donnie-desanti/">episode 58.</a></strong> He was the first health coach I had on my show. I immediately called IIN after the show and signed up right away,</p> <p>“When I discovered IIN, thanks to you, Ashley, I am going to be graduating soon. I have four weeks left,” said Kathryn Keefer. “I love all aspects of health because they are saving my life. And I can’t wait to share with other people what I figured out and how they can figure out what works for them.”</p> <p>Kathryn Keefer received her training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With her knowledge, she co-creates completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.</p> <h3>Get Connected With Kathryn Keefer!</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.coachkathrynk.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/coachkathrynk/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Reading by Kathryn Keefer</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2FtqT8S" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Mastering Your Mean Girl</a></strong><strong> by Melissa Ambrosini</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0399176713&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0399176713" alt="" /></p> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></span></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Join the Learn True Health Community & Support Us on Patreon!

218 The Root Cause of Illness, How to Heal, Detox Heavy Metals, Environmental Toxins, WiFi, Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Cancer, Autism, Alzheimer's Disease, Autonomic Response Testing with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><a href="http://learntruehealth.com/summit" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Heavy Metal Summit:</strong></a></p> <p>http://learntruehealth.com/summit </p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Heavy Metals Detox </span> </h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/heavy-metals/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Heavy metals detox is an essential method of healing. There have been numerous cases showing exposure to heavy metals cause various sickness. These usually result in organ damage, reduced mental function, and lower energy levels. That’s why for this episode, I’m so thrilled to have world-renowned expert Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt explain why we need a heavy metals detox.  </p> <p>I first heard of Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt from my Naturopathic physician. Apparently, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt not only specializes in heavy metals detox. He is also known internationally to reverse autism, treat Lyme disease, certain types of cancer, autoimmune conditions and managing pain.   </p> <h3>Early years  </h3> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt shares that he grew up in Berlin, Germany, and then moved to a town south of Germany when he was older. It was in Freiburg, Germany where he decided to pursue medical studies.  </p> <p>During his last two years of medical school, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was in an experimental course that included acupuncture and homeopathy. Around five to six years later, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt ended up in the United States where he explored alternative medicine. </p> <p>He liked Natural Medicine so much that he remembers going to a lot of chiropractic seminars among other things. Today, he has 30 years of Holistic healing experience and even developed things like pain management and treating heavy metals through a heavy metals detox.   </p> <h3>Autonomic Response Testing  </h3> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has an excellent knowledge of how the autonomic nervous system works and how we can use reflexes better. This led him to develop his methods of testing which he called Autonomic Response Testing.   </p> <p>Through this method, changes in muscle tone are used to indicate and gauge the body’s overall health. In fact, it was proven to be very useful in diagnosing the health condition of patients all over the world.   </p> <p>However, not just any health practitioner can administer this testing. According to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, one must first complete three levels of certification and pass a written and practical exam.  </p> <p>“The Autonomic Response Testing allows me to look deeper into people and know what makes them sick. Solutions come when you know the causes,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt.  </p> <h3>Decline Of Human Condition  </h3> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has been studying the decline of the human condition for decades. Together with his team, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt found out that environmental toxicity is indeed very possible. As a result, our body has become the driving force of toxic illness.   </p> <p>“Everybody now has some level of chronic illness. It is getting worse every year. Based on my experience, the main cause of chronic illness is cardiovascular disease,” Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt reveals. “Although that decreased over the last few years because people learned that smoking is bad.”  </p> <p>He adds, “Then it was taken over by cancer. But now both cardiovascular disease and cancer have been taken over by neurological disease. And the death rate is still rising due to the presence of heavy metals in the brain.”  </p> <h3>Harmful Heavy Metals  </h3> <p>Now, what then is the most dangerous heavy metal? According to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, the main danger comes from aluminum. What is more alarming is the fact that aluminum is in most vaccines, food, and drinking water. Apparently, it is also in the air! That’s why doing a heavy metals detox is essential.  </p> <p>“Other things like glyphosate in our food chain is also something to watch out for. It is the primary herbicide used in the United States. And the U.S. by far has the highest use of glyphosate,” warns Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt.  </p> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt explains that glyphosate is a chelating agent. It binds all the trace minerals in the food. However, if it binds to aluminum, it eventually transports into the bloodstream and goes straight to the brain.   </p> <p>Why is it a cause for alarm? Well, for one thing, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says it decreases the minerals that we need. And it puts toxic elements into the spaces where the good minerals should be. Furthermore, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt revealed that aluminum apparently also is the primary cause of Alzheimer’s disease.  </p> <p>“In the U.S., when you eat organic food, it has 80% of the same amount of glyphosate as commercially grown food. So no matter how good you try to eat, you can’t protect yourself unless you know what to do,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. “Eating organic food is 20% less toxic, and it’s still a good number. But ideally, you want 90% clean food.”   </p> <h3>Other Heavy Metals To Avoid  </h3> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that other heavy metals to avoid are cadmium, nickel, mercury, and lead.  We should likewise be careful in choosing cosmetics and medication because most of the products contain titanium, which is also harmful.  </p> <p>Apart from heavy metals, we should also avoid an environment that has a massive amount of electromagnetic radiation.  This means, even in our own home, we should regulate the use of wi-fi.  </p> <p>“We are born with a functional detox system. And wi-fi disables many of the detox enzymes. It’s like a perfect storm,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt.  </p> <h3>Link Between Autism And Heavy Metals  </h3> <p>Aside from aluminum, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that mercury toxicity is also something to watch out for. He also explains that many pathogens have an advantage. Apparently, pathogens can live in heavy metal contaminated body compartments where the cells of our immune system become completely dysfunctional.   </p> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt likewise revealed that he did a study wherein he found out wherever there is high levels of mercury in the air, the higher rate of autism. Hence,  mercury exposure in the air is indeed dangerous, especially for pregnant mothers.  </p> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also suggests getting rid of wi-fi routers in the house. He says a pregnant woman does not belong in a wi-fi home. This is because the transfer of toxins and infections happens in pregnancy through the placenta.   </p> <p>“The rate of autism doubles every five years. It is strongly linked to metal toxicity and the electromagnetic environment. So pregnant women should be careful,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. “I teach autism prevention and treatment in Europe. In fact, I have a seminar coming up this February.”  </p> <h3>The Klinghardt Academy  </h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.klinghardtacademy.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The Klinghardt Academy</a></strong> has a wealth of information on all of Dr. Klinghardt’s work. The site has seminar schedules, articles, protocols and recommended products and tools for different health conditions. </p> <p>As for success stories, Dr. Dietrich is proud to share that he and his team has had a lot of success with patients and treating children with autism in particular.  He proudly reveals that many of the kids are now doing well in universities.   </p> <h3>Doing  A Heavy Metals Detox  </h3> <p>Doing a heavy metals detox is not hard. First of all, for pregnant women, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt advises the intake of high doses of chlorella. Chlorella is an alga that completely binds a huge amount of toxic materials.  </p> <p>“If the mother takes chlorella during lactation, it extracts most toxins from the breastmilk. As soon babies are old enough to eat, they can also be given chlorella,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. “For pregnant women, the recommended daily dosage is ten tablets three times a day. Take it with a meal or before a meal.”  </p> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also clarifies that it is better to start with a high dose rather than a low dose. This is because a small dose triggers a release of toxins that apparently, do not bind enough. Hence, you can end up feeling a lot worse.   </p> <p>Getting our hair analyzed for heavy metals is likewise an effective method to determine heavy metals toxicity. The same goes for chelation therapy, although Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was quick to say chelation therapy has its ups and downs. This is because it removes the beneficial minerals from the body apart from the heavy metals.   </p> <p>It takes time to do a heavy metals detox. However, doing it the natural way is indeed very possible. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also agrees that garlic, cumin, melatonin, and cilantro are particularly effective in extracting mercury out of our brain.   </p> <p>For those who love saunas, this is good news. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt strongly recommends doing a daily sauna. However, he advises people to take only five minutes in the sauna and immediately take a cold shower for detox. This is to avoid being overexposed to electromagnetic radiation in some saunas.  </p> <p>“Coffee enema is also good. Especially for carbon-based toxins, but not so much for heavy metals. However, any form of enema therapy has some place in good therapy. And coffee enemas are probably #1. I recommend people do it once a week,” said Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt.   </p> <h3>Heavy Metals Summit  </h3> <p>If you want to know everything there is to know about heavy metals and heavy metals detox, I strongly recommend that you sign up for the <strong>Heavy Metals Summit</strong> happening on <strong>January 29</strong> to<strong> February 5</strong>.  </p> <p>Several health experts and doctors will be present to provide updated info on heavy metals and remedies. To sign up, click <strong><a href= "http://www.learntruehealth.com/summit">here</a></strong>.  </p> <p>Digital copies are likewise available for sale. Perfect for anyone who would like to share the summit activities with friends.  </p> <h3>Sophia Health Institute  </h3> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt founded the <strong><a href= "http://www.sophiahi.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Sophia Health Institute</a></strong> in 2012. With a world-class team of experts at the helm, they ensure that each patient is given ample attention and the right diagnosis for their various health conditions.  </p> <p>Apart from medical doctors and therapists, the Sophia Health Institute has six Naturopathic doctors and two nurses to attend to patients. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt assures they are all capable of administering bloodwork and physical exams including Autonomic Response Testing to address the real cause of illnesses.  </p> <h3>Wise Words Of Advice </h3> <p>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that ultimately if you want to keep your body clean, do not rely on biochemistry alone. But instead, combine it with biophysics because biophysics keeps the detox pathways open. He says it also helps to have a healthy psychological expectation of our health and our diet.  </p> <p>“What we eat is not what we get. We have about 2,500 species of microbes in our gut,” explains Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. “And depending what they make out of our food, that’s what we’re getting. People are so highly individual, so there is not one diet that fits all.”   </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt studied medicine & psychology in Freiburg, Germany, completing his Ph.D. on the involvement of the autonomic nervous system in autoimmune disorders. Early in his career, he became interested in the sequelae of chronic toxicity (especially lead, mercury, environmental pollutants & electromagnetic fields) for the course of illness.</em> </p> <p><em>While working in India, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt encountered Eastern concepts of disease etiology & blended them with his Western training. This laid the foundation for his 5-level system of Integrative Medicine. In the U.S., he spent three years as a full-time emergency physician before becoming Medical Director of the Santa Fe Pain Centre.</em>  </p> <p><em>Increasingly aware of the limitations of conventional medicine when dealing with chronic conditions, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt trained in Ericksonian hypnotherapy and began to include body-oriented psychotherapeutic & counseling approaches in his work, along with neural therapy, mesotherapy injection techniques & applied psychoneurobiology.</em>  </p> <p><em>Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has contributed significantly to the understanding of metal toxicity & its connection with chronic infections, illness & pain. He has been instrumental in advancing various fields within biological medicine – non-invasive pain management, injection techniques for pain & orthopedic dysfunction, anti-aging medicine, toxicology, pediatrics (neuro-developmental disorders), energy psychology, biological dentistry, and others.</em>  </p> <h3>Get Connected with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt! </h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.klinghardtacademy.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">The Klinghardt Academy </a> </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.sophiahi.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Sophia Institute</a> </strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.learntruehealth.com/summit">Heavy Metals Summit</a> </strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></span></p> <p><span class="_5yl5">Join the Learn True Health Community & Support Us on Patreon!

217 How to Avoid a Caesarean Section, Decrease Labor Pain and Have a Healthy Baby, Pregnancy, with Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, Birth Arts International Doula Trainer Kate Dewey and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

Derived from the Greek term, “servant woman,” more pregnant women opt to have birth doulas during labor to avoid undergoing a cesarean section. I had a great birthing experience with a doula, too. So I’m thrilled to have Kate Dewey on the show today who can expound on her role during birthing. </p> <h3>Early Exposure </h3> <p>Kate Dewey says her interest in birthing started in childhood when she first watched the movie, “Look Who’s Talking.”  She realized that she loved the idea of birth. </p> <p>And because her grandmother was a nurse, it further influenced Kate Dewey’s yearning to become a mom someday. That dream of having kids and being a certified doula turned into a reality years later.  </p> <h3>Becoming A Doula </h3> <p>Kate Dewey shares that she particularly became interested in becoming a doula after she gave birth to her daughter in 2006. Her personal experience in childbirth inspired her to help women give birth naturally.  </p> <p>However, it was not until 2008 when she gave birth to her second child that she trained with DONA International. It was a blessing that she underwent training because her second delivery was everything she envisioned it would be.  </p> <h3>Doula Vs. Midwife </h3> <p>The need for a doula indeed arose out of the huge cultural shift that’s taken place over the last 50 years. When I gave birth, my doula played a significant role in ensuring that the delivery of my baby was as smooth as possible.  However, many women still confuse doulas and midwives.  </p> <p>First of all, midwives are capable of assisting decision-making aspects. These can be anything from medical exams and whether or not a woman needs anesthesia. In most cases, midwives usually have adequate training in clinical nursing training.  </p> <p>Doulas on the other hand, primarily provide emotional and physical support. They also help new mothers and their family time to adjust taking care of the new baby.  </p> <p>“As a birth doula, I support women and families as they give birth to their babies. That can mean different things,” said Kate Dewey. “We are present for the home birth and birthing centers. And we help women in delivery by giving physical and emotional support.” </p> <h3>Hospitals Providing Birth Doulas </h3> <p>Apparently, more hospitals are recognizing the need for doulas apart from midwives. Kate Dewey explains that in the hospital, doulas complement the birth team because they’re not a medical care provider. Nor are they equipped to deliver a baby or give medical advice. </p> <p>Essentially, doulas help mothers understand what birthing options are available. Part of their job is also to make sure that the labor continues to progress.  Kate Dewey also explains that there is also a particular technique to help new mothers cope with pain.  </p> <p>“We can decrease the overall cesarean rate by 50%. And we can shorten the length of labor by almost 25%. There is also a lower epidural request by 50%,” reveals Kate Dewey. </p> <p>Furthermore, hiring a doula significantly increases the success rate of breastfeeding and lower blood pressure during labor. Overall, having them around substantially contributes to happy childbirth.  </p> <h3>Hiring A Doula </h3> <p>Before hiring, it is essential that you are comfortable with your birthing team.  Kate Dewey says that she and her partner KC Johnston, have had ample training and adequate experience to ensure that your pre-delivery and postpartum goes as smooth as possible.  </p> <p>According to Kate Dewey, their $1,500 birth package includes prenatal visits and full support every step of the way. Most of their clients truly appreciate the extra help in taking care of the new baby.  </p> <p>“The midwife primarily focuses on the safety of the mom and baby. Their job is easier if there is a doula. We’re often at the birth before the midwife,” said Kate Dewey. “Women who are birthing need loving support and informational support. The loving support comes from their partners.”  </p> <h3>Teaching Others </h3> <p>Seeing the clamor for women who wish to know more about childbirth, Kate Dewey started teaching classes in 2010. She says being able to educate lots of women over the years has been truly fulfilling.</p> <p>Years later, Kate Dewey added another feather to her cap. She became a certified Doula Trainer after undergoing training at the Birth Arts International in 2015.  </p> <p>“This work is emotionally very challenging. You’re walking into somebody’s birth. And you have to be intensely aware of how important that day is for them,” said Kate Dewey. “Plus, you have to focus all your energy on the client during their darkest hour of need.” </p> <p>Kate Dewey explains that while their training is primarily done in person, there are also online training classes. The online training is self-paced. Ideally, it takes six to eight months to complete the course. There is also a requirement of attending a minimum of five births before one can be certified.   </p> <h3>Let It Be Birth </h3> <p>For those who are interested in childbirth and doula training, Kate Dewey’s website is an excellent resource to get all of that information. They likewise provide other services like massage therapy and placenta encapsulation.  </p> <p>Kate Dewey is primarily based in Seattle. So if you’re around the area, I strongly suggest you check out her calendar of events and attend the workshops. You can also schedule an appointment with her to discuss the services they offer in detail. It’ll be worth it, I promise! </p> <p>“If you’re listening to this and you’re getting ready to have a baby, and you’re scared, find a doula and educate yourself,” advises Kate Dewey. “Make sure that what’s going to happen to your body is normal.” </p> <p>She adds,”My job exists to be a voice of confidence and fear elimination in a world where people get pregnant and don’t know what comes next.” </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Kate Dewey is a Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, Birth Arts International Doula Trainer. She became interested in Doula work after the hospital birth of her daughter in 2006. </em> </p> <p><em>She is also trained with DONA as a birth and postpartum doula in the summer of 2008 while she was pregnant with her second child and preparing for her birth. In 2010, she decided to continue her work in the field of birth as a Childbirth Educator. She now teaches classes in Mountlake Terrace.</em></p> <p><em>In 2011, Kate Dewey completed her DONA certification and also began to work as a placenta encapsulation specialist. While it is not something she does anymore, she believes in the power of placenta medicine and recognizes the placenta as a powerful source of spiritual energy as well as nourishment for the birthing person postpartum.</em> </p> <p><em>In 2015, Kate studied with the holistic organization, Birth Arts International. She completed Doula certification and immediately began the work to become a Doula Trainer. She has since taught Doula workshops in the US and Uganda, training new birth workers.</em> </p> <h3>Get Connected With Kate Dewey! </h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.letitbebirth.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/LetItBeBirth/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Reading by Kate Dewey</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2Dv5WcL" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Essential Homebirth Guide</a></strong><strong> – by Jane Drichta and Jodilyn Owen</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1451668627&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1451668627" alt="" /></p> <p> <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></span></p> <p><em><strong>WATCH THE TRUTH ABOUT VACCINES...FOR FREE!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>VISIT: <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/vaccines">http://learntruehealth.com/vaccines</a></strong></p> <p><strong>LearnTrueHealth.com/vaccines</strong></p> <p> <strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></p> <p><strong>Do You Have Anxiety?</strong> <span style= "text-decoration: underline;">End Anxiety Now!</span> Learn Two Powerful Mind Tricks for Removing Anxiety, Ending Worry, & Controlling Fear So It Stops Controlling You!

216 How to Unlock Motivation, Overcome Obstacles, Achieve Goals, Heal Your Past and Live in the NOW with Best-Selling Author of Do a Day, Life Coach Bryan Falchuk and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p>Do A Day <a href="http://amzn.to/2FvTJ9m" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Book:</a> http://amzn.to/2FvTJ9m</p> <p>Bryan's website: http://www.doadaybook.com</p> <p> </p> <h2><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Motivation   </strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/motivation/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/motivation/</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Motivation is either the driving force or obstacle to achieving goals. Now that we’re a couple of weeks into the new year, I am so thrilled to have life coach Bryan Falchuk as my guest for today’s episode. His life journey is so incredible and perfect to illustrate what we can achieve with the right motivation.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Rock Bottom<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>They say success stories start from failures.  I believe there is truth to that and Bryan Falchuk’s life story is a prime example. When he was just a toddler, his parents’ marriage fell apart. Broken homes indeed can have adverse effects on children, especially toddlers.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Consequently, Bryan Falchuk gained weight because he was unhappy.  Aggravating the situation was the fact that he also struggled with depression and anxiety. Fast forward years later, he apparently had the motivation to do something about his weight and succeeded.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span>  </p> <h3>Turning Point<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Bryan Falchuk recalls that 2011 was the year that everything changed.  He had a tough time because his wife suddenly became very ill and he had a two-year-old son to raise. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Initially, Bryan Falchuk thought his wife just had the flu. However, when her health got worse, she was likewise rapidly losing weight.  Even doctors could not identify the cause of her illness. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>With all these trials, it was easy for anyone to lose control of the situation.  However, Bryan Falchuk saw it as the perfect opportunity for motivation. He recalls waking up one day, feeling a sense of purpose. That internal purpose consequently led him to focus finding a cure for his sick wife. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Furthermore, it was an added challenge for Bryan Falchuk. It indeed was not easy to juggle the household and medical expenses since Bryan Falchuk was the sole breadwinner of the family. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Motivation And Awareness<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>Bryan Falchuk’s wife eventually was diagnosed to have Lyme disease.  Refusing to resort to conventional medicine, his wife found the solution to her health issues through acupuncture. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>This whole life experience ultimately taught Bryan Falchuk the advantages of being consistent with the motivation to achieve goals.  Giving credit to his wife, Bryan Falchuk says his wife helped him find his life purpose even when she was sick. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“You can’t fix anything if you’re broken. And you can’t be there for anyone else ultimately if you’re so not there for yourself,” said Bryan Falchuk.    </p> <h3>Setting Goals<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>It is so easy to set goals. However, the real challenge is the motivation to achieve those goals. A significant factor in getting real motivation is the determination to endure the obstacles along the way. Bryan Falchuk advises people to stop using the word ‘but,’ because everything is possible.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Bryan Falchuk also cautions against using material things as motivation. It looks enticing at first, but ultimately, the drive to succeed will be fleeting. For one to be able to find real motivation, you consequently have to be aware of finding a more profound connection within yourself.<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>“Set specific goals.  It’s all about a sense of self.  It’s not just about being healthy.  You still have to take action,” said Bryan Falchuk. “If you don’t have a self-love approach, you’re not allowing the possibility that you’re okay or that you deserve success.”<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>I can so relate to what Bryan Falchuk is saying.  Before I started this podcast, there were a lot of things that went through my mind. I felt overwhelmed just thinking about how am I going to get known health personalities on my show.  <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>However, I love talking. And I honestly felt the need to educate people on the benefits of Natural Medicine and what it truly means to be healthy.  Hence, I took the plunge and over 200 episodes later; I am so glad I decided to pursue and realize my goal of doing my podcast. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Everyone has a goal.  It can be terrifying or exciting.  Ultimately, the key to achieving your goals is to enjoy the journey no matter how hard it seems. <span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <h3>Do A Day Book<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p>For those who would want to find that motivation within themselves, Bryan Falchuk’s Do a Day: How to live a better life everyday book is an excellent resource. <span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></p> <p>Ultimately, Bryan Falchuk’s book aims to motivate you into transforming yourself by embracing a new lifestyle. It helps you learn how to be aware of the present instead of dwelling in the past.<span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span></p> <p>“We judge our past. This is because we live in the judgment of our past. So get through today. I’m talking doing what you have to do to get through,” said Bryan Falchuk. “You don’t just achieve by waiting for the storm to end.  Feel the purpose of the action. That’s how you get things done.”  </p> <p>He adds, ” We deserve and can have great lives. I hope everyone can find a bit of allowance in themselves for themselves.”  </p> <p><em>Bryan Falchuk, CPT BCS is a life coach, public speaker, Inc Magazine columnist and the best-selling author of Do a Day, in which he teaches how to overcome challenges and achieve goals. Bryan Falchuk spent the much of his life obese until he discovered how to change all that and more – Do a Day.</em><span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span> </p> <h3>Get Connected With Bryan Falchuk!<span data-ccp-props= "{}"> </span><span data-ccp-props="{}"> </span></h3> <p><a href="http://www.doadaybook.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Official Website</strong></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/doadaybook" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.instagram.com/doadaybook/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.twitter.com/doadaybook" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.inc.com/author/bryan-falchuk" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Inc Magazine</a></strong></p> <h3>Book  by Bryan Falchuk</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2DM5W9r" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Do A Day</a></strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0998549207&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=0998549207" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <h3>Recommended Reading by Bryan Falchuk</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2DeZBCk" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Open Heart, Clear Mind</a> by Thubten Chodron</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0937938874&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></span></p> <p><em><strong>WATCH THE TRUTH ABOUT VACCINES...FOR FREE!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>VISIT: <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/vaccines">http://learntruehealth.com/vaccines</a></strong></p> <p><strong>LearnTrueHealth.com/vaccines</strong></p> <p> <strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></p> <p><strong>Do You Have Anxiety?</strong> <span style= "text-decoration: underline;">End Anxiety Now!</span> Learn Two Powerful Mind Tricks for Removing Anxiety, Ending Worry, & Controlling Fear So It Stops Controlling You!

215 Healing Eczema, Acne, Psoriasis, Rashes and Itchy Dry Skin with Denise Henry and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><a href= "http://thehealyourselfbook.com">http://thehealyourselfbook.com</a></p> <p><a href= "http://unitedstatesofable.com">http://unitedstatesofable.com</a></p> <h2><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Eczema</strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/eczema"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/eczema</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Eczema is a common skin condition that affects millions of people regardless of age. It usually is mistaken as a rash. To those who are seeking a natural remedy for eczema, this is the perfect episode for you! My guest, Denise Henry dealt with eczema at a very young age, and she gave excellent tips for healing.  </p> <h3>Starting Young  </h3> <p>Denise Henry’s journey dealing with eczema started when she was barely a newborn.  However, medical doctors then couldn’t pinpoint the real cause of her condition.   </p> <p>Then when Denise Henry was three months old, she was diagnosed with an ear infection and was prescribed amoxicillin as her medication. However, it turns out she was also adversely reacting to animals and dairy. That was devastating since Denise Henry loved to pet animals.   </p> <h3>Eczema vs. Psoriasis  </h3> <p>People often mix up eczema and psoriasis. Eczema is a skin condition which is triggered by a hypersensitivity reaction. Some factors that trigger the condition include textile fabrics, animals, and chemicals.  </p> <p>Eczema is known to be common in infants, and some outgrow the skin condition when they become adults. Symptoms of the skin include factors like being reddish, inflamed, peeling, blistered, cracked or pus-filled.  However, it is not covered with scaly dead skin, unlike psoriasis.  </p> <p>As for psoriasis, it can appear anywhere on the body. People who suffer from this experience intense itching. Compared to eczema, psoriasis is harder to treat.    </p> <h3>Coping With Eczema  </h3> <p>Having to deal with eczema all her life, Denise Henry was given steroid creams by dermatologists as a medication. Although the creams break down the skin, it does the job by relieving the itch.   </p> <p>As years flew by, Denise Henry recalls that the turning point in her life was when she traveled to Southeast Asia for self-healing. She volunteered at a small resort near Kuala Lumpur for a month. Life was good. However, her eczema started flaring up badly during that time.   </p> <p>It turns out that the pool water had fecal coliform bacteria.  Apparently, the water from the limestone pools was pumped into showers and drinking water in the resort.  Hence, aggravating Denise Henry’s sensitive skin condition.   </p> <p>After barely recovering from that bout of skin irritation, Denise Henry then flew to Bali for a festival. This time, her skin was again inflamed due to the papaya she ate. It again triggered her eczema so when she recovered from the irritation and flew back to Malaysia; she started practicing meditation when she settled in Langkawi.   </p> <p>Fast-forward to a trip in Argentina, Denise Henry met a dermatologist who happened to prescribe a different brand of steroid cream.  It was initially efficient but it was not able to completely get rid of her eczema.  </p> <h3>Going Back To The United States  </h3> <p>Denise Henry once and for all decided to get to the bottom of her skin condition when she went back to the United States,. From the steroid cream that she was given by the dermatologist in Argentina, she researched all the ingredients and found natural solutions for each of them.   </p> <p>From there, Denise Henry started making her creams while regularly teaching and meditating.  As her body developed a sense of calmness, Denise Henry realized that she stopped itching!   </p> <h3>Healing Naturally  </h3> <p>Apparently, Denise Henry discovered that eczema could be treated naturally.  That is why she created a framework of mindfulness, environment, symptoms, and solutions. Aptly called as M.E.S.S., Denise Henry put together simple steps to live a pain-free life.   </p> <p>“Be aware. You can heal. Changing that mindset is so powerful, and care is the key,” said Denise Henry. “Medication and going out in nature absorbs bioenergy. Working out is also part of the care.”  </p> <h3>Recommended Foods  </h3> <p>Denise Henry says that a significant factor in healing from eczema is consuming the right foods. She recommends collagen-enhancing foods like bone brother and a lot of non-GMO and grass-fed options.  Other food choices include:  </p> <ul> <li>avocado</li> <li>sweet potatoes</li> <li>oranges </li> <li>leafy greens </li> <li>white tea cabbage</li> <li>turmeric</li> <li>beets ginger</li> <li>berries</li> <li>dark chocolate</li> <li>salmon</li> <li>garlic</li> <li>rosemary</li> <li>fermented foods</li> <li>coconut oil </li> </ul> <p>Denise Henry also advises staying away from processed foods and any dish containing chemicals that your body doesn’t know how to digest properly.    </p> <h3>Heal Yourself Book  </h3> <p>To those who would like to know more about healing yourself naturally, I suggest grabbing a copy of Denise Henry’s book. The book is an excellent resource for natural remedies, making the right food choices and how textiles can affect eczema.  </p> <p>Essentially, Denise Henry recommends looking for a plant or vegetable-dyed textiles like bamboo, flax linen or hemp. According to Denise Henry, bamboo, in particular, is sustainable and good for the environment. Plus, they are also non-reactive for the skin, unlike synthetic fibers.  </p> <p>“Bamboo sheets are soft. They do a finer thread count and are coated just lightly in a little bit of natural wax from the plants. That deters the dust mites, so there is no mold growth,” said Denise Henry.  </p> <h3>Skincare Line  </h3> <p>Denise Henry’s skincare line is a work in progress. She is continuously expanding her list of products and takes pride in sharing that her ingredients are all natural.   </p> <p>“All my ingredients are anti-inflammatory and anti-reactive.  My products range from natural butter, sunflower seed oil, avocado oil, lavender, beeswax, soy wax, and sandalwood,” said Denise Henry.  </p> <h3>Success Stories  </h3> <p>Denise Henry has countless stories of clients who have successfully healed naturally. One client was even able to do away with bipolar medication!  </p> <p>The solution, however, is not at all complicated. Denise Henry says that one must start with simple steps. A good place to start is changing the way you eat and tracking your food intake.   </p> <p>By tracking your food intake, you would be able to identify what food you are reacting to. It can also determine what part of your body responds to a particular food.  In most cases, Denise Henry says it is usually stress-related.  </p> <p>“Mindfulness is the base of any healing. Believe that you can heal and that you can heal. I just want people to realize that they can heal themselves. And they can also heal the people around them,” said Denise Henry.   </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Denise Henry got her Fine Arts for Fashion Design Bachelor’s degree from the International Academy of Design & Technology. She earned her Master’s degree in Environmental Sustainability from Green Mountain College.</em>  </p> <p><em>She is passionate about creating beauty and healing without harming the planet. After receiving her BA, Denise Henry realized that she cared less about what people were wearing and more about what fashion was doing to our environment. </em>  </p> <p><em>Naturally, Denise Henry’s Master’s Thesis focused on eliminating waste in the retail apparel industry. Not only from the textile development side of it but, also within the transportation and marketing departments.</em>  </p> <p><em>Denise Henry’s main criticism is that even with Global Reporting Standards like the GRI and the HIGG Index, companies are not required to present the entirety of their data from all levels of production and logistics and on to the sales floor.</em>  </p> <h3>Get Connected With Denise Henry!</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://thehealyourselfbook.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/usofable" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>Twitter</strong></a></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.instagram.com/usofable/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <h3>Book By Denise Henry</h3> <h3><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2mlTnJw" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Heal Yourself</a></strong></h3> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=B0764N98S1&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B0764N98S1" alt="" /></p> <h3><strong>Recommended Readings By Denise Henry</strong></h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2D8B0De" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">A New</a><a href="http://amzn.to/2D8B0De" target= "_blank" rel="noopener"> Earth</a><a href= "http://amzn.to/2D8B0De" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">  </a>by Eckhart Tolle</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=0452289963&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></p> <p><strong>Do You Have Anxiety?</strong> <span style= "text-decoration: underline;">End Anxiety Now!</span> Learn Two Powerful Mind Tricks for Removing Anxiety, Ending Worry, & Controlling Fear So It Stops Controlling You!

214 Why Chicken Soup for the Soul Is The Perfect Medicine, Simply Happy, Random Acts of Kindness, Step Outside Your Comfort Zone with Amy Newmark and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

There have been hundreds of published volumes with stories that speak of wisdom, inspiration, and positivity.  But did you know that a lot of work goes behind making an edition Chicken Soup For The Soul? Today we’re blessed to have the book’s publisher Amy Newmark who will reveal all that!  </p> <h3>Carrying On The Legacy  </h3> <p>Amy Newmark narrates that like most of us, she grew up reading Chicken Soup For The Soul and it deeply touched her life. So when the opportunity came to buy the publishing company, she welcomed the chance with open arms.   </p> <p>“I can’t take credit for the early books since we bought the company from the founders in 2008. But I carried on the same legacy by putting 101 stories from real regular people in every book,” said Amy Newmark.   </p> <p>Although the management changed hands, the format remains the same. According to Amy Newmark, the job entails hard work since she has to work seven days a week and 14 hours a day.  However, reading thousands of inspiring stories helps her reduce stress.   </p> <h3>True Health  </h3> <p>I know many of you are wondering why we’re talking about a book in a health podcast.  Like I have stressed in past episodes, overall health goes beyond the physical aspect.  True health essentially covers emotional, spiritual and mental elements as well.   </p> <p>“I don’t think you can be healthy if you haven’t reduced your stress levels. If you haven’t found a way to make your life productive and purposeful, it can affect health,” affirms Amy Newmark.  </p> <h3>How They Evolved  </h3> <p>Amy Newmark reveals that it was insanity when she and her partners bought the company during the most profound recession period in 2008. The situation was worse in the publishing industry.   </p> <p>However, Amy Newmark decided to take the plunge because she came from the technology side of business and content. And technology is delivering content. So when she saw this content company available, she had no second thoughts of taking over.   </p> <p>“Chicken Soup For The Soul stood for what we believed in. We could take the company beyond the bookshelf,” said Amy Newmark. “It is about storytelling that improves peoples lives. And storytelling is not confined to the written page anymore.”  </p> <p>To reach out to more people, they send out daily emails with free stories. And they have leveled up in the technology scene as well! You can now get your dose of inspirational stories from the Chicken Soup For The Soul website, watch TV and link to <strong><a href="http://aplus.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">www.Aplus.com</a></strong>, which is a positive journalism website that the company also owns in conjunction with actor Ashton Kutcher.  </p> <p>Furthermore, Chicken Soup For The Soul has an amazing podcast where you’ll be able to get regular doses of inspirational stories. The link to the podcast may be found at the end of this blog. </p> <h3>Random Acts Of Kindness Book  </h3> <p>The Chicken Soup For The Soul Random Acts Of Kindness book was launched in February 2017.  According to Amy Newmark, it proved to be such a huge bestseller that they kept having to do emergency reprints.   </p> <p>“The book contains 101 stories of acts of kindness from strangers. It revives hope in humanity and shows you that almost everybody is a good person,” Amy Newmark said.   </p> <p>She also says that people inherently want to be good. They want to look out for each other, and they want to take care of each other.   </p> <p>“People feel good when they do something good for someone else. There’s a natural human impulse to do good things for other people. It’s like a physiological, emotional need that we have,” said Amy Newmark. “The cool thing about the book is that it tells people they are allowed to do those things.”   </p> <h3>Simply Happy Book  </h3> <p>This edition of Chicken Soup For The Soul, on the other hand, is primarily a crash course for Chicken Soup For The Soul advice and wisdom. Amy Newmark says that the stories in the book inspire people to find their happiness and help them step out of their comfort zone.   </p> <h3>Behind The Scenes  </h3> <p>Much as the team behind Chicken Soup For The Soul work long hours, Amy Newmark claims that the company treats their staff quite well. They are equally wonderful to their writers as well.  </p> <p>“I think we pay the highest amount to our writers and freelancers. We don’t take their copyright because we let them maintain ownership of their story. Primarily, we just get the right to publish it in our book.,” said Amy Newmark.  </p> <p>However, it’s not easy to have your work published in the book.  According to Amy Newmark, they have a team of editors who proofread every story.  Nevertheless, the majority of those whose submitted works didn’t get published are still thankful for the chance to be able to write their story.   </p> <h3>Looking Ahead  </h3> <p>Amy Newmark excitedly reveals that since we’re in the digital age, fans and followers can look forward to reading more inspirational stories via Chicken Soup For The Soul Entertainment, as well as TV shows.   </p> <p>“We’re going to continue to cover all of the topics relevant to people today. The way we put stories from people together, really allow us to keep our fingers on the pulse of society,” said Amy Newmark. “Watch out for more stories via TV, online video, and movies. We’ll be innovating ways to use the power of storytelling to improve people’s lives.</p> <h3>Bio  </h3> <p><em>Amy Newmark is the bestselling author, editor-in-chief, and publisher of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. Since 2008, she has published 133 new books, most of them national bestsellers in the U.S. and Canada, more than doubling the number of Chicken Soup for the Soul titles in print today. She is also the author of Simply Happy, a crash course in Chicken Soup for the Soul advice and wisdom that is filled with easy-to-implement, practical tips for having a better life.</em>  </p> <p><em>Amy Newmark is credited with revitalizing the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand, which has been a publishing industry phenomenon since the first book came out in 1993. By compiling inspirational and aspirational true stories curated by ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences, Amy Newmark has kept the twenty-three-year-old Chicken Soup for the Soul brand fresh and relevant.</em>  </p> <p><em>Amy Newmark graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University where she majored in Portuguese and minored in French. She then embarked on a three-decade career as a Wall Street analyst, a hedge fund manager, and a corporate executive in the technology field. She is a Chartered Financial Analyst.</em>  </p> <p><em>Her return to literary pursuits was inevitable, as her honors thesis in college involved traveling throughout Brazil’s impoverished northeast region, collecting stories from regular people. She is delighted to have come full circle in her writing career—from collecting stories “from the people” in Brazil as a twenty-year-old to, three decades later, collecting stories “from the people” for Chicken Soup for the Soul.</em>  </p> <p><em>When Amy Newmark and her husband Bill, the CEO of Chicken Soup for the Soul, is not working, they are visiting their four grown children.</em>  </p> <h3>Get Connected With Amy Newmark!  </h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.chickensoup.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/ChickenSoupfortheSoul" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.twitter.com/amynewmark" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter – Amy Newmark</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://twitter.com/chickensoupsoul" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter – Chicken Soup For The Soul</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.instagram.com/chickensoupsoul/?hl=en" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.chickensoup.podbean.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Podcast</a></strong></p> <h3>Books by Amy Newmark</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2DgfiKd" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Simply Happy</a></strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1611599490&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1611599490" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2miPRjb" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Chicken Soup for the Soul: Step Outside Your Comfort Zone</a></strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1611599741&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1611599741" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2CYEWpk" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Chicken Soup For The Soul: Think Positive For Kids 101: Stories About Good Decisions, Self-esteem, And Positive Thinking</a></strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=161159927X&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=161159927X" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2D3etaL" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Crazy Family: 101 Stories that Put the Fun Back in Dysfunctional</a></strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1611599776&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1611599776" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></p> <p><strong>Do You Have Anxiety?</strong> <span style= "text-decoration: underline;">End Anxiety Now!</span> Learn Two Powerful Mind Tricks for Removing Anxiety, Ending Worry, & Controlling Fear So It Stops Controlling You!

213 The Future of Food, Clean Protein: The Revolution that Will Reshape Your Body, Boost Your Energy and Save Our Planet, The Good Food Institute, Vegan, Plant-Based Diet, Bruce Friedrich and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><a href="http://amzn.to/2Ct4eIz" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Get Bruce's book:</a> Clean Protein: The Revolution that Will Reshape Your Body, Boost Your Energy and Save Our Planet http://amzn.to/2Ct4eIz</p> <p>The Good Food Institute: http://www.gfi.org<br /> Email Bruce: <a href="mailto:brucef@gfi.org">brucef@gfi.org</a></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Clean Protein For Better Health</span></h2> <h2><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/clean-protein/"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/clean-protein</strong></span></a></span></h2> <p>Clean protein spells a big difference for one to reach optimal health. Contrary to belief, just because we eat a sufficient amount of protein, doesn’t mean that it’s healthy. To help us understand more about what clean protein is, my guest, Bruce Friedrich, will educate us on why quality and not quantity should matter.   </p> <h3>Starting Clean  </h3> <p>Bruce Friedrich is a staunch advocate of producing meat that is devoid of chemicals and unethical practices. His mission is to educate people and companies the importance of creating the right environment to sustain plant-based and clean meat for consumers.  </p> <p>“I’ve been working against industrial farming. Because I saw what happened to companies who are creating better, healthier, more sustainable products that people want to consume,” said Bruce Friedrich.   </p> <h3>The Good Food Institute  </h3> <p>The Good Food Institute was established by Bruce Friedrich to develop definitive steps towards producing clean food that is healthy to eat and delicious. Ultimately, these little steps also significantly help prevent the destruction of our planet as far as environmental issues are concerned.   </p> <p>“Pretty much everyone makes their food purchasing decisions with considerations about taste, price, and convenience,” Bruce Friedrich said. “Hence, we can transform agriculture away from the industrial use of animals by creating products that people want to buy. That’s the purpose of The Good Food Institute.”  </p> <h3>Clean Protein  </h3> <p>Now, what is clean protein? It’s hard to find food that is considered clean protein. Most food products are laden with chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals. These can be found in commercial meat, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products.   </p> <p>According to Bruce Friedrich, if we’re not picky about the quality of the food we eat, there will be negative consequences health-wise. So how do we make sure it’s clean protein?   </p> <p>For starters, buy food from a reputable source, especially meats. One solution that The Good Food Institute came up with was to grow meat from a small cell sample. This way, there is no need to slaughter animals.   </p> <h3>The Solution  </h3> <p>Clean meat is still considered real meat. However, it is safer to consume because it has no chemicals or residue from bacteria. And because of the way it was made, harmful greenhouse gas emissions from factories can also be avoided. Hence, a significant advantage to our environment.   </p> <p>According to Bruce Friedrich, food scientists are likewise looking into the same procedure to produce healthy and high-quality plant-based foods. Plants are being sourced to create plant-based meats, eggs, and dairy products. In fact, some companies in the U.S. and Europe are already producing clean meat products using this concept.   </p> <h3>Clean Protein Book  </h3> <p>The book is co-authored with Kathy Freston. Bruce Friedrich says the Clean Protein Book is an excellent resource for whoever wants to learn everything there is to know about clean protein.   </p> <p>According to Bruce Friedrich, the Clean Protein book is an inspiration from a book he read 30 years ago, called the Diet For A Small Planet. The book also includes the lessons he learned ever since he practiced a plant-based diet since he was 18 years old.   </p> <p>“Kathy and I were both investigating the science of nutrition for decades.  Plant-based is cleaner protein. People get sick from eating contaminated meat. They get hospitalized and die,” said Bruce Friedrich.  </p> <h3>The Harsh Reality  </h3> <p>According to Bruce Friedrich, many Americans are prone to sickness and obesity. Apparently, most of the diseases they suffer from are dietary diseases. Hence, it is essential that we make changes in what we eat before it’s too late.   </p> <p>“Vegetarian and vegan diets are healthy for every stage of life from infancy to very old age. The diet makes people less prone to heart disease and stroke,” explains Bruce Friedrich.    </p> <h3>Meatless Mondays  </h3> <p>Health authorities have been more aggressive over the years promoting a meatless diet.  In fact, Bruce Friedrich says there’s a program called Meatless Mondays which is supported by several schools of public health.   </p> <p>Meatless Mondays mostly encourage people to shift away from animal products consumption one day a week. Under the program, people should eat the meat size of a deck of cards. And according to Bruce Friedrich, the more you eat legumes, nuts, and whole grains as a protein source, the healthier you’re going to be.  </p> <p>“One of the things that The Good Food is working on, is finding a way to deliver high-quality protein in the form of plant-based meat that people want to consume,” said Bruce Friedrich. “For people who want to eat real meat, eating cultured meat is an option that is so much better for the environment and cleaner product.”  </p> <h3>B-12 and Fiber  </h3> <p>Bruce Friedrich says we can get our daily dose of B-12 from the environment. And since B-12 is created from bacteria, Bruce Friedrich says that the most convenient option would be to take a B-12 supplement.   </p> <p>Furthermore, Bruce Friedrich says that among people who are entirely plant-based, the rate of those with iron-deficiency anemia is not higher than it is in the general population. However, people who are on a plant-based diet are suffering from much lower rate of the diseases like heart disease and diabetes.  </p> <p>“The more whole plant-based food you eat, the healthier you will be. Furthermore, 97% of Americans are not taking in enough fiber,” Bruce Friedrich explains.   </p> <p>He adds, “Women should take at least 25 grams of fiber a day, while men must take 38 grams of fiber. The average person’s intake is 15 grams. Therefore, we must make it a point to get enough protein and fiber because it lowers the rate of diseases.”   </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Bruce Friedrich graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown Law and Phi Beta Kappa from Grinnell College. He also holds degrees from Johns Hopkins University and the London School of Economics. </em>  </p> <p><em>Bruce Friedrich is a popular speaker on college campuses and has delivered presentations on food innovation at most of the nation’s top universities, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and MIT. He has co-authored two books, including the forthcoming Clean Protein: The Revolution That Will Reshape Your Body, Boost Your Energy—and Save Our Planet with New York Times bestselling author Kathy Freston, contributed chapters to five books, and authored seven law review articles.</em>  </p> <h3>Get Connected With Bruce Friedrich!</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.gfi.org/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/brucegfriedrich" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://twitter.com/BruceGFriedrich" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></strong></p> <h3>Book by Bruce Friedrich</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2CWXiac" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">Clean Protein </a></strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1602863326&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1602863326" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Become A Health Coach</a></strong><br /> <br /> <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Learn More About The Institute for Integrative Nutrition's Health Coaching Certification Program by checking out these four resources:</span><br /> <br /> 1) Integrative Nutrition's Curriculum Guide:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmUMxb">http://geti.in/2cmUMxb</a><br /> <br /> 2) The IIN Curriculum Syllabus:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2miXTej">http://geti.in/2miXTej</a><br /> <br /> 3) Module One of the IIN curriculum:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmWPl8">http://geti.in/2cmWPl8</a><br /> <br /> 4) Get three free chapters of Joshua Rosenthal's book:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cksU87">http://geti.in/2cksU87</a></p> <p>Watch my little video on how to become a Certified Health Coach!</p> <p><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI</a></p> <p> <strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></p> <p>Do you have a <a href="http://www.BloodSugarCoach.com" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">blood sugar</a> issue?

212 Achieving Your Big Health Goals in 2018, Learn From The Danger Zones, Permanent Weight Loss, Physical Fitness, Success Mindset with Transformation Coach Adam Schaeuble and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p><span class="field-rendered">To Join Adam's Transformation Academy visit: <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/academy">http://learntruehealth.com/academy</a><br /> <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/academy">http://learntruehealth.com/academy</a><br /> </span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;"><strong>Health Goals for 2018</strong></span></h2> <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/health-goals"><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/health-goals</strong></span></a></span></p> <p>Health goals are usually on top of most people’s lists as their new year’s resolution. However, how many of us follow through and achieve our health goals by the end of the year? It’s only been a few days after the holidays, and we’re so lucky to have Adam Schaeuble back on the show!  Read on to check out his excellent tips on how we can become the best version of ourselves this year.</p> <h3>Younger Years</h3> <p>For those who have heard about Adam Schaeuble for the first time, you’d be surprised how huge he was during his younger years. He weighed 185 lbs. when he graduated from high school. Consistently gaining 20 to 30 pounds in college, he weighed a whopping 327 lbs. after graduation!</p> <p>But because Adam Schaeuble felt unhealthy, he wanted a change. It was not long before he did lose over a hundred pounds! In fact, Adam Schaeuble was so motivated achieving his health goals; it eventually inspired other people in his town to follow his example. Now is the goal is to help people all over the world to lose weight.</p> <p>“There was no quick fix and no hacks.  The key to successful health goals is to remain consistent in your efforts,” said Adam Schaeuble. </p> <h3>Workout Challenge</h3> <p>Good news! Adam Schaeuble has developed a 14-day course, which is a daily workout challenge. The 10-minute video is unique because it has his clients leading the exercise.</p> <p>“People are going to get a lot of insight and make sure that it sticks. Because it’s New Year’s Resolution time right now, people are fired up to get going and ignite that transformation. That’s why I call it the starter course,” Adam Schaeuble explained.</p> <p>However, Adam Schaeuble cautions everyone to be realistic about their health goals.  He said his workout challenge is not going to solve everything. However, he promises that this video will get people started on their health goals and lay the foundation for what could happen.</p> <h3>TransformationCoach.Me Podcast</h3> <p>Adam Schaeuble began his podcast to fulfill his goal of reaching many people all over the world and get them motivated to start their health goals. It’s honestly a fantastic source of information on how you can start and maintain realistic health goals.</p> <p>“I try to paint a picture so that people can visualize the process and see where they are at. Then I put together a process called the transformation timeline,” Adam Schaeuble said. </p> <h3>Going Through The Process</h3> <p>Let’s face it.  Getting on the health bandwagon is not an easy task.  It takes a tremendous amount of willpower mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally to achieve our health goals.  While most people can be motivated to start fulfilling their health goals, the real test is whether they have the right mindset to go through the process.</p> <p>“The basic question is whether you are going to be coachable. What I’m looking to assess is the balance in their lifestyle and health. Are you willing to give up control? Are you willing to learn something new?,” said Adam Schaeuble.</p> <p>Essentially, what Adam Schaeuble is trying to point out, is that will you be willing to let someone else tell you how to do the process. That is why he asks people to switch their focus toward health for a specified period and let go of that lifestyle.</p> <h3>Program Duration</h3> <p>Ideally, Adam Schaeuble recommends clients to stay on his transformation program for six months. This gives ample time for people to focus on their goal and the why behind the goal.</p> <p>Furthermore, Adam Schaeuble says we need to simplify things and focus on the fundamentals. Questions to ponder in gauging your self-assessment include the following:</p> <ul> <li>Am I following a dedicated nutrition and exercise plan?</li> <li>Is my transformation strategic?</li> <li>Am I doing all these things consistently?</li> </ul> <p>“That’s where we start to see results towards our transformation. Stop the negative momentum and focus moving forward. And also get a good support system,” advises Adam Schaeuble.</p> <h3>Lifestyle Rehabilitation Statement</h3> <p>By developing the lifestyle rehabilitation statement,  Adam Schaeuble mapped out what he wanted to achieve, set health goals and a deadline. If you recall, it wasn’t also easy for Adam Schaeuble.</p> <p>“I realized I could learn so much from my clients just by taking some time,” said Adam Schaeuble. “I started a group at my online academy. I sit in and listen, and work through it. It gives me so many ideas to create just by sitting and listening to other people.”</p> <h3>Taking Action</h3> <p>Ultimately, Adam Schaeuble encourages people to seek all avenues where they can soak knowledge. A more significant challenge is also learning to let go of one major limiting belief.</p> <p>If you have that little voice, Adam Schaeuble says we have to motivate ourselves to go through the goal-setting process. Remind yourself of your health goals and feel the passion behind those goals by assuring ourselves that we are worth it.</p> <p>“Look at the entire year and set goals for 3 to 5 different areas for the year. Divide it into quarterly amounts. There will be ups and downs but don’t give up,” encourages Adam Schaeuble. “Go through the process. The key is never to stop moving. Tell yourself that this is the year that everything changes.”<em> </em> </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Adam Schaeuble is a former Ph.D. (Pretty Heavy Dude). He once weighed 327 pounds, and after losing 100 pounds himself, he opened up a gym in his hometown of Bloomington, IN. Adam Schaeuble took what he learned from his 100-pound weight loss experience and applied it to his hometown clients. In a five year period, his hometown clients lost over 35,000 lbs.!</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Now Adam Schaeuble is on his One Million Pound Mission. He is taking all of his successful programs and strategies that he has used for his transformation and his hometown clients, and he’s putting them online with the hopes of producing a one million pound impact across the globe.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>Adam Schaeuble has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Indiana University and has the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification from the NSCA. At his company, TransformationCoach.Me, he holds the positions of Head Coach and Lead Transformologist.</em><em> </em></p> <p><em>He is also the host of The TransformationCoach.Me podcast where he dives into his best transformation tips and strategies, and he interviews people that have had amazing transformation results to extract their best tips and motivation for the audience.</em><em> </em></p> <h3>Get Connected With Adam Schaeuble:</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://www.transformationcoach.me/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/transformationcoach.me-podcast/id1138490044?mt=2" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Transformation Coach Podcast</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/transformationcoach.me" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.instagram.com/transformationcoach.me/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.defeatthecheat.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Defeat The Cheat Facebook Group</a></strong></p> <h3>Book by Adam Schaeuble</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2CAryaC" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Third Component</a></strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1535034793&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1535034793" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <h3>Recommended Readings By Adam Schaeuble</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2wOZbiP" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Power Of Habit</a></strong><a href= "http://amzn.to/2wOZbiP" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"> </a><a href="http://amzn.to/2wOZbiP" target= "_blank" rel="noopener"> </a>by <strong>Charles Duhigg</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=081298160X&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="http://amzn.to/2yhT1uC" target="_blank" rel= "noopener"><strong>The One Thing</strong></a> by <strong>Jay Papisan</strong></p> <p><img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=081298160X" alt="" /></p> <p><span class="field-rendered"> </span></p> <p><img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1885167776&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1885167776" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Become A Health Coach</a></strong><br /> <br /> <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Learn More About The Institute for Integrative Nutrition's Health Coaching Certification Program by checking out these four resources:</span><br /> <br /> 1) Integrative Nutrition's Curriculum Guide:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmUMxb">http://geti.in/2cmUMxb</a><br /> <br /> 2) The IIN Curriculum Syllabus:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2miXTej">http://geti.in/2miXTej</a><br /> <br /> 3) Module One of the IIN curriculum:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmWPl8">http://geti.in/2cmWPl8</a><br /> <br /> 4) Get three free chapters of Joshua Rosenthal's book:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cksU87">http://geti.in/2cksU87</a></p> <p>Watch my little video on how to become a Certified Health Coach!</p> <p><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI</a></p> <p> <strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></p> <p>Do you have a <a href="http://www.BloodSugarCoach.com" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">blood sugar</a> issue?

211 How to be Fit After 40! Energy, Cellular Nutrition, Ketogenic Diet, Anti-aging, Fitness, Menopause, Hormonal Balance and Weight Loss with Tracee Gluhaich and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast
<p> <span class= "field-rendered">http://highenergygirl.com<br /> <br /> Tracee's course is called KetoPause "no men allowed"and is starting in January!</span></p> <h2><span style="font-size: 18pt;">The Ketogenic Diet</span></h2> <p><span style= "text-decoration: underline; font-size: 10pt;"><strong>http://learntruehealth.com/the-ketogenic-diet/</strong></span></p> <p>The Ketogenic diet has been reaping positive feedbacks in recent years. And for an excellent reason, too! So many lives have changed with the ketogenic diet. But did you know it can also be highly beneficial to women in their 40s? According to my guest, Holistic Health Coach Tracee Gluhaich, the effects of ketogenic diet are amazing!</p> <h3>Early Years</h3> <p>Tracee Gluhaich shares that her growing up years didn’t revolve around a healthy diet. She said her parents were both unhealthy and not being able to eat right played a huge factor.</p> <p>Since Tracee Gluhaich was too young to know any better, she struggled with weight issues and remembered trying out several diets. What made it worse is the fact that she had two close friends who were skinny. According to Tracee Gluhaich, it only made her feel insecure about her weight.</p> <h3>Getting Older</h3> <p>Tracee Gluhaich may have had weight issues earlier in life, but she did try to rectify that by exercising. Although she always exercised, her eating habits remained to be a problem. Hence, the weight issues prevailed until she got married and had kids.</p> <p>As her kids were growing up, Tracee Gluhaich says they were primarily raised on an American diet. Fearful that they would have the same struggles she had growing up, Tracee Gluhaich decided to shape up and fix her diet. </p> <h3>Gaining Weight</h3> <p>Tracee Gluhaich says that she regrets it every time she looks back at all the years of having unhealthy eating habits. Even if she loved working out, she was alarmed how she gained weight during menopause.</p> <p>Her weight gain caused Tracee Gluhaich to evaluate the best steps to take. She, later on, discovered that having hormone implants was the reason behind her weight gain of 13 lbs. in three weeks.</p> <h3>Discovering Ketogenic Diet</h3> <p>Moving on forward and achieving optimal health, Tracee Gluhaich later made it her mission to educate people on the proper nutrition. After discovering the ketogenic diet and combining it with a food sensitivity testing, she finally found herself on the proper path to healing.</p> <p>“We need to feed our body proper nutrients so when our cells renew and divide every minute of every hour, they thrive instead of being sick,” said Tracee Gluhaich.</p> <p>A typical day for Tracee Gluhaich would be drinking a large glass of water with lemon and salt upon waking up. The water would replace the electrolytes in her body. Having coffee before hitting the gym in the morning, she manages to ward off the urge to snack until lunchtime.</p> <p>Lunch would usually consist of vegetable, protein, and oil. For dinner, Tracee Gluhaich would choose something that is high fat, moderate protein, and low carb.</p> <p>“I don’t like to call ketogenic a diet. It’s a lifestyle. I’m into quality over quantity. I’m into grass-fed meat, fresh farm eggs and the whole food way of healthy eating,” Tracee Gluhaich revealed.</p> <h3>How To Start A Ketogenic Diet</h3> <p>First of all, Tracee Gluhaich coaches her clients into focusing on the mindset by setting some goals. Nutrition comes in second. The third step is the physical component. Tracee Gluhaich has, in fact, designed a tested and proven program combining balance, lifting weights, cardio, yoga, stretching and mindfulness.</p> <p>“People need to see what’s possible. When they want to throw in the towel, it is beneficial that they read their goals daily,” shares Tracee Gluhaich. “People usually give up, and I specifically want to empower middle-aged women that it is possible to get through the program.” </p> <h3>Getting Into The Right Mindset</h3> <p>To help you visualize your goals, Tracee Gluhaich advises people to write a story to themselves. What you write must contain the answers to what you want in your life right now that you can’t currently do.</p> <p>As for people who want to lose weight, Tracee Gluhaich says that weight loss is excellent. However, you must be able to identify can weight loss give you that you don’t currently have.</p> <p>According to Tracee Gluhaich, people put so much emphasis on the number on the scale. They fail to focus on how their new body is going to change their lives and improve the quality of every day.</p> <p>“Read your vision statement. Your mind doesn’t know the difference between imagination and reality,” advises Tracee Gluhaich. “And if you read it every morning when you get up, it will set your path in motion for good habits that day. If you read it every night before you go to bed, it will embed into your subconscious mind and become a part of who you are.”</p> <h3>Sugar Addiction</h3> <p>A significant factor in weight issues is the addiction to sugar. For women, in particular, we crave sweets, especially around our period. And trying to eliminate sugar from your diet entirely is indeed not an easy thing to do.</p> <p>Tracee Gluhaich says that we become so overwhelmed by the feeling whenever we eat sweets. In reality, the fructose in the food overrides our brain into tricking us.</p> <p>“Sugar is a physiological response. People think it’s willpower. To the human liver, alcohol and sugar are the same things,” explains Tracee Gluhaich. </p> <h3>Motivating People</h3> <p>Tracee Gluhaich says she motivates people by showing examples of people who have succeeded and benefitted from her program. Hopefully, it helps new clients realize that it is possible to achieve the benefits of a ketogenic diet.</p> <p>The second strategy is helping clients visualize how they see themselves in the near future. From here, she helps them to eat healthily, stay positive and build strength.</p> <h3>KetoPause: No Men Allowed</h3> <p>Tracee Gluhaich is set to launch her course for women in their 40s and beyond on January 2, 2018. The course would cover all the intimate issues surrounding menopause and empower women to change their path to better health.</p> <p>The course aims to help women develop better mental clarity, reduce inflammation in the body among others. And because a sense of community is essential, clients would get the chance to interact with other women as well.</p> <h3>High Energy Girl Website</h3> <p>Can’t get enough of Tracee Gluhaich? Well, do check out her fantastic website. From the site, you’ll get a free download to a cheat sheet on how to cope with menopause. There are also links to her podcast as well as her blog and e-book, so go ahead and check it out.</p> <p>Tracee Gluhaich is a Holistic Health Coach and Personal Trainer in California. She has been married for 27 years and lives on a small organic farm where she raised her three sons.</p> <p>After struggling with weight and the dieting roller coaster her whole life, Tracee Gluhaich has switched her focus to being healthy, not skinny, looking at longevity and true health, not a number on the scale.</p> <p>Her passion is educating and inspiring women, in their middle years, to take their health seriously, by following a ketogenic diet, moving their body, and enjoying self-care.</p> <h3>Get Connected with Tracee Gluhaich!</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://highenergygirl.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Official Website</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://facebook.com/thehighenergygirl" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://twitter.com/traceeglu" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Twitter</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://youtube.com/traceeglu" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Youtube</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://instagram.com/thehighenergygirl" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">Instagram</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Reading by Tracee Gluhaich</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2lmLlQ3" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">The Ketogenic Bible</a></strong><strong> –  Dr. Jacob Wilson</strong></p> <img src= "http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1628601043&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" alt="" /> <img src= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1628601043" alt="" /> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Become A Health Coach</a></strong><br /> <br /> <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Learn More About The Institute for Integrative Nutrition's Health Coaching Certification Program by checking out these four resources:</span><br /> <br /> 1) Integrative Nutrition's Curriculum Guide:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmUMxb">http://geti.in/2cmUMxb</a><br /> <br /> 2) The IIN Curriculum Syllabus:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2miXTej">http://geti.in/2miXTej</a><br /> <br /> 3) Module One of the IIN curriculum:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmWPl8">http://geti.in/2cmWPl8</a><br /> <br /> 4) Get three free chapters of Joshua Rosenthal's book:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cksU87">http://geti.in/2cksU87</a></p> <p>Watch my little video on how to become a Certified Health Coach!</p> <p><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI</a></p> <p> <strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></p> <p>Do you have a <a href="http://www.BloodSugarCoach.com" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">blood sugar</a> issue?

210 The Toxicity Epidemic, Immune Function, Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Epstein–Barr Virus, Mold, Heavy Metals, Parasites, with Dr. Jay Davidson and Ashley James on the Learn True Health Podcast

In fact, Lyme disease and heavy metal toxicity are correlated to parasites. Much as we can’t completely get rid of parasites, my guest, Dr. Jay Davidson will teach us how to do a parasite cleanse and why it is essential to do so.   </p> <h3>Sick Wife  </h3> <p>Dr. Jay Davidson shares that it was his wife who was sick with Lyme disease at the age of 7. She was given medication since she had many other health issues until she was 18 years old. </p> <p>They met in college when they both went to chiropractic school. Dr. Jay Davidson’s wife was still struggling with Lyme disease until their daughter was born while he had massive parasite issues. Medications didn’t do much, so they both sought out natural alternatives.   </p> <p>“Lyme disease has several strains. It is a bacteria and loves to drill into tissues and joints. Because it does not necessarily flow into the bloodstream, it is often undetected,” said Dr. Jay Davidson.  </p> <p>He adds,”Lyme disease has an interesting defense mechanism. Upon taking antibiotics, it can change forms. When it develops into a cyst, it becomes resistant to the antibiotic. It also has an autoimmune effect.”  </p> <h3>Causes of Lyme Disease  </h3> <p>Medical literature lists the cause of Lyme disease is commonly from infected black-legged ticks. The same ticks can also transmit diseases to animals.   </p> <p>According to Dr. Jay Davidson, because the ticks are so small, the bites are hardly noticeable. The insect’s saliva has an anesthetic-like substance. That is why one would initially not feel the bite.   </p> <h3>Curing Lyme Disease  </h3> <p>Symptoms of Lyme can be anything from flu, aches, and fatigue. Severe symptoms include chronic pain, nerve system problems, and even Bell’s palsy. Other symptoms include inflammation of the eyes and liver.  </p> <p>However, Lyme disease can be cured when it is detected early. Dr. Jay Davidson says the key to finding a solution for Lyme disease is understanding how it works and how it affects our body.   </p> <p>“You don’t have to manage it. It is just because you’re not peeling down the layers. We are given an immune system that is amazing. All we have to do is to identify all factors,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.  </p> <p>He adds, “Our immune system can get over Lyme. Often, it is triggered by emotional stress and mold exposure. Essentially, Lyme is a clinical diagnosis and not a lab test diagnosis.”  </p> <h3>Parasites And Its Effects  </h3> <p>Dr. Jay Davidson believes that parasites are such an epidemic. It is because there is not much effort to teach people about parasites. That is why he advises his patients to do a long parasite-type cleanse to empty out the stuff that’s in us. Then remember to do a cleanse once every six months for maintenance.   </p> <p>Dr. Jay Davidson further explains that bugs love trauma. And when there’s trauma, the immune system gets suppressed. Hence, there’s a chance that bugs can flourish.   </p> <p>Health conditions like pelvic pain, ovarian pain, bladder pain, pain during intercourse and labor pain are just some of the examples where bugs can be prevalent.  This is because the immune system diminishes in those areas of surgery. Apparently, bugs go there because it is an easier environment to take over.   </p> <p>“Anything you are doing to kill parasites, you’re going to do two things—kill the parasites and release heavy metals,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “So it is also important to have some binders. It is so simple to do but effective.”  </p> <h3>Heavy Metals Toxicity  </h3> <p>According to Dr. Jay Davidson, heavy metals toxicity is the direct impact of the parasite. Symptoms include anything from headaches to fatigue. We can get infected through our environment, food and even the water that we drink.  </p> <p>The most common heavy metals are lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic, and cadmium. One way of reducing the risk of having heavy metals toxicity is by changing our dietary habits.   </p> <p>“If you have heavy metals toxicity, your body is more likely to keep those parasites around. Parasites absorb heavy metals. Mold spores can live inside parasites. If parasites are around, we would never be able to detox heavy metals,” explains Dr. Jay Davidson.   </p> <h3>BioActive Carbon Supplements  </h3> <p>The body is pretty much water and carbon. That comprises approximately 96% of molecules in the body. Dr. Jay Davidson adds that when you have carbons to donate, those are building blocks for the cells.   </p> <p>So to help get rid of toxins in the body, Dr. Jay Davidson offers two kinds of supplements—<a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/cleanse" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">BioActive Carbon 1</a> and <a href= "http://learntruehealth.com/cleanse" target="_blank" rel= "noopener">BioActive Carbon Plus</a>.  Both are available on <a href="http://learntruehealth.com/cleanse" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">his website</a>.   </p> <p>BioActive Carbon 1 is a supplement for heavy metals and environmental toxins. It is not from activated charcoal and instead, comes from multiple sources of humic acid and fulvic acid.   </p> <p>BioActive Carbon Plus, on the other hand, is a systemic biotin binder. This means it can support binding biotoxins like mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are usually associated with ammonia from bacteria, mold, parasites, fungi, yeasts, and viruses.  </p> <p>“It binds toxins very well. So if there is an excess of toxicity in the body, it could potentially cause irritation, and you can feel agitated or anxious,” Dr. Jay Davidson said. “Vast symptoms can occur when you start detox too fast. Start with half a capsule twice a day for one week or two. But usually, one capsule twice a day is the recommended dosage.”   </p> <h3>Formula 1 </h3> <p>This <a href="http://learntruehealth.com/cleanse" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">supplement</a> is a support for anti-parasite. It contains a combination of three herbs that contain organic neem, organic vidanga, and organic clove.   </p> <p>Dr. Jay Davidson suggests that it is advisable to do periodic cleansing every six months.  He assures that his supplements are safe because they do not use fillers or additives. It is also GMO-free, gluten-free.  </p> <p>“Periodic cleansing keeps the numbers down. The goal isn’t to kill every single bacteria, parasite, and virus in our body because our body is vastly made up of these things,” said Dr. Jay Davidson.  </p> <h3>Bio</h3> <p><em>Dr. Jay Davidson D.C., PSc.D. completed his undergraduate studies at University Wisconsin La Crosse Majoring in Biology with biomedical concentration and chemistry minor. He received his doctorate of chiropractic degree at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota.</em>  </p> <p><em>Dr. Jay Davidson focuses on functional, natural medicine.

I have indeed heard about spices as an aid to lose weight, and we're so lucky to have Health Coach Nagina Abdullah explain that in this episode. It's great timing because Christmas is just around the corner, so it's best that we are aware of what we eat before diving into all that holiday food.</p> <h3>Personal Transformation</h3> <p>Nagina Abdullah's success story was a result of a personal transformation. It was a constant struggle to be healthy, and like me, she tried practically every diet there is.</p> <p>Atkins, Paleo, South Beach diet---you name it, we tried it!</p> <p>Her weight issues went on after graduating from UC Berkley and New York University. She eventually she got married, had kids and found herself in a very demanding job as a management consultant in healthcare.</p> <p>Because of her hectic career, Nagina Abdullah led an unhealthy lifestyle of not getting any exercise and eating unhealthy food. Her frustration in losing weight consequently made her insecure.</p> <h3>Turning Point</h3> <p>One day, Nagina Abdullah remembers feeling exhausted. Hence, she wasn't able to take her kids out to play that day. That led her to deeply ponder about her weight issues and how it prevented her from being the best version of herself.</p> <p>Resolving to make a change, Nagina Abdullah decided to reprioritize. However, because of her busy work life, she found going to the gym virtually impossible. So Nagina Abdullah thought of first changing the way she ate.</p> <p>"I read online as well as books on nutrition and new ways of thinking. My background was in molecular and cell biology, and understanding how hormones worked," shares Nagina Abdullah. "So I started to adopt new scientific approaches and started to eat differently."</p> <p>Instead of focusing on eating fewer calories, Nagina Abdullah focused on the type of foods she was eating. She cut down on sugar and ate natural and healthier food. To decrease inflammation, Nagina Abdullah also learned to eat slower and ate healthier carbs than fast burning white carbs.</p> <h3>Discovering Spices</h3> <p>During her weight loss journey, Nagina Abdullah found out that adding spices made her food taste better. She, later on, found out that spices were a significant factor in helping her lose weight.</p> <p>"Spices are incredibly anti-inflammatory and increases metabolism. It also has a lot of other health benefits. After I made food changes, I lost 10 lbs. in a month without exercise," Nagina Abdullah recalls.</p> <p>Ecstatic over her initial success, Nagina Abdullah added two days of strength training and kept eating the same way. She was thrilled the weight kept coming off! She lost a total of 20 lbs. in 3 months and 40 lbs. in 9 months, exercising just two days a week.</p> <p>Ever since Nagina Abdullah started using spices in her food, she claims that it tastes so good and she feels so nourished. In fact, she says it has become a habit because she now actually craves vegetables.</p> <p>"The part I took with me was hormonal regulation. Understanding that insulin release is key to weight loss," explains Nagina Abdullah. "It's not only about calories. Essentially, it is the type of food you're putting in your body that is going to signal your insulin to be released either faster or slower."</p> <h3>Benefits Of Spices</h3> <p>Nagina Abdullah further explains that spices were used for centuries. Our ancestors used them, and it is something that kept us going as human species. However, we can't say the same for processed foods.</p> <p>And just what exactly are the benefits of spices? For one thing, spices are anti-inflammatory. It lowers blood pressure. And it stores less fat in your body, as well as decrease water retention.</p> <p>Nagina Abdullah also says that if you are feeling lethargic, chances are, your hormones are not acting in the right way because of inflammation of the body. Inflammation is caused by too much sugar, chemicals or stress.</p> <p>Our body apparently works better if we decrease inflammation. And by incorporating spices in our food, it protects us from diseases and even slows down the aging process.</p> <p>"Many people don't realize we have inflammation until we change the food we are eating. The body feels so different," Nagina Abdullah said. "For me, it was a game changer. I wasn't just eating to lose weight. Consequently, my body felt good and I felt better."</p> <p>Nagina Abdullah says a lot of people suffer from inflammation because of the food they eat. Add on to that; doctors prescribe drugs that merely mask the symptom.</p> <p>Ever heard the saying that stress causes weight gain? It does! This is because stress releases cortisol. Nagina Abdullah says it mobilizes blood sugar and acts as a systemic immune suppressant. That is why there is an inflammatory response.</p> <p>Nagina Abdullah attests that the transition is tricky, but you need to commit. She says that after balancing your body with the right kind of food, you won't crave food like you used to.</p> <h3>Three Powerful Spices</h3> <p>Now, we're in for a treat! Nagina Abdullah lists these three as the most powerful spices that you can incorporate into your diet:</p> <p><strong>Cinnamon</strong></p> <p>- It stabilizes blood sugar and curbs sugar cravings.</p> <p>- Cinnamon does not have insulin release, unlike sugar. When you are avoiding that insulin release, you're storing less fat.</p> <p>- Perfect to add in coffee, tea or smoothies.</p> <p><strong>Turmeric</strong></p> <p>- It fights inflammation.</p> <p>- Turmeric helps block fat and lower body fat.</p> <p>- It has mild, earthy taste.</p> <p>- It adds color to your food.</p> <p>- Try to make a golden smoothie, consisting of almond milk, turmeric, a dash of vanilla and a sprinkle of black pepper. Black pepper increases the absorption of turmeric by 2000 to 5000 percent.</p> <p>- Add turmeric to egg and sprinkle with cayenne pepper.</p> <p><strong>Ginger</strong></p> <p>- Increases digestion and decreases inflammation.</p> <p>- Perfect for teas.</p> <p>- Chop or grate to avoid the concentration of flavor.</p> <h3>Masala Body</h3> <p>Nagina Abdullah's website seeks to help people lose weight naturally through eating spices. Through her programs, she has successfully educated many clients on the right way to eat.</p> <p>She also shares that an efficient way to plan out meals is to do all your meal preps for the week on a Sunday. Apart from roasting vegetables, chicken or fish, she advises the use of glass containers to prolong the freshness of the cooked food.</p> <p>"You'll never feel deprived. And that's why it works. Because you have these natural health benefits, you'll feel so much better, and you'll end up wanting to do it more."</p> <p>Nagina Abdullah is a health coach for ambitious women and founder of the website MasalaBody.com. She teaches women her easy anti-inflammatory system for sustainable weight loss and higher energy levels. Nagina Abdullah has been featured in Business Insider, People.com, Huffington Post and on Fox News.</p> <p>Nagina Abdullah has a degree from UC Berkeley in Molecular and Cell Biology and worked as a healthcare consultant for some of the largest healthcare providers in the country.</p> <h3>Get Connected With Nagina Adbullah!</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://masalabody.com/learntruehealth">Sweet Spice Cheat Sheet</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://www.facebook.com/masalabody">Facebook</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "http://www.instagram.com/masalabody">Instagram</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href= "https://twitter.com/nagina">Twitter</a></strong></p> <h3>Recommended Reading By Nagina Abdullah</h3> <p><strong><a href="http://amzn.to/2ByEsGl">High-Performance Habits</a> by Brendon Burchard</strong><br /> <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1401952852/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1401952852&linkCode=as2&tag=mighty91com-20&linkId=80eeaadad79e5c0f676f8541a0d07fa0" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src= "//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?_encoding=UTF8&MarketPlace=US&ASIN=1401952852&ServiceVersion=20070822&ID=AsinImage&WS=1&Format=_SL250_&tag=mighty91com-20" border="0" /></a><img src= "//ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=mighty91com-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1401952852" alt="" width="1" height="1" border="0" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>The Links You Are Looking For:</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Become A Health Coach</a></strong><br /> <br /> <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Learn More About The Institute for Integrative Nutrition's Health Coaching Certification Program by checking out these four resources:</span><br /> <br /> 1) Integrative Nutrition's Curriculum Guide:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmUMxb">http://geti.in/2cmUMxb</a><br /> <br /> 2) The IIN Curriculum Syllabus:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2miXTej">http://geti.in/2miXTej</a><br /> <br /> 3) Module One of the IIN curriculum:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cmWPl8">http://geti.in/2cmWPl8</a><br /> <br /> 4) Get three free chapters of Joshua Rosenthal's book:<br /> <a href="http://geti.in/2cksU87">http://geti.in/2cksU87</a></p> <p>Watch my little video on how to become a Certified Health Coach!</p> <p><a href= "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI</a></p> <p> <strong>-------------------------------------------------------------------------------</strong></p> <p>Do you have a <a href="http://www.BloodSugarCoach.com" target= "_blank" rel="noopener">blood sugar</a> issue?
