Meal Prep Mondays

http://learntruehealth.com/meal-prep/

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.

Weight Loss Journey

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.

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.

Crohn’s Disease

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.

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.

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.

“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. 

Winning Meal Plan

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.

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.

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.

Meal Prep Mondays

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.

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.

Helpful Reminders

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.

“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.” 

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.”

Right Motivation

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.

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.”

But fear of the unknown did not faze Alex Torres.  In fact, that’s what motivated him to succeed and eventually help people.

“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. 

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.”

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.

I can relate to Alex Torres. Dr. Joel Fuhrman was recently on my show where he revealed a very scientific-based diet that heals many diseases and prevents diseases. Even the late dentist, Dr. Weston A. Price presented many case studies proving that there is indeed a link between diet and oral health.

Recommended Meal Prep

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.

“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.

Storing Food

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.

“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. 

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.” 

Animals Can Be Vegan

I had a guest on my show, Kristie Middleton who talked about going meatless.  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.

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.

Looking Ahead

Alex Torres likes to think long-term. And because he wants to be with friends and family longer, he leads by example.

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. 

“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.”

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.

Alex Torres has been living in Orlando, Florida for the past ten years. He and his family previously lived in Williamsburg, Virginia for a couple of years, and most of his life in Long Island, New York.

Eating Right 

http://learntruehealth.com/eating-right

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.

Childhood Influence

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.

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.

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.

Harsh Reality

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.

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.

“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.” 

Fulfilling Career

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.

“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.”

Benefits Of Mushrooms

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.

“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.”

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.

Current Statistics

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.

“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.”

New Technology

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.

“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.

Success Stories

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.

“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.”

Changing Ways

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.

“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.

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.

Busting Myths

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.

“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.”

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.

Diet And Longevity

In connection with the topic of health, diet, and longevity, Dr. Joel Fuhrman cites the book, The Good Life by Helen and Scott Nearing. Scott Nearing was an M.I.T. scholar and economist.

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.

“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.

He adds, “Most of these chronic illnesses that plaque Americans are not predominantly genetic. They are mostly from food and ignorance.”

Benefits Of Vegetables

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.

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.

“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.” 

Other Recommended Foods

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.

“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.

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.

Fast Food Genocide Book

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.

“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.”

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.” 

Bio

Pure Energy Wellness

http://learntruehealth.com/pure-energy

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.

Life As A Gymnast

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.

“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.” 

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.

Mission To Help Others

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.

“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.” 

Stand On Vaccines

In episode 224 of Learn True Health, I interviewed Dr. Paul Thomas 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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. 

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.”

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.

Going Gluten-Free

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.

“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.

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.

“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.”

Getting Into Yoga

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.

“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. 

Recommended Superfoods

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.

“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.”

Allison Pelot also says we need lots of calcium in our body. And dairy helps build muscle and aids in recovery.

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.

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.

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.

“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.

Fruits And Vegetables

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. 

“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. 

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.”

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.

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.

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.

Think Positive

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. 

“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. 

Integrate Yourself Podcast

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.

“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.”

Coaching Services And Other Resources

Allison Pelot provides coaching services.  She also has personal training, small group fitness, nutrition coaching, and workshops.

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.

Bio

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. Her health issues created a passion for learning more about holistic health. This led Allison Pelot to obtain certifications in holistic nutrition and lifestyle coaching and exercise coaching from the CHEK Institute in San Diego, CA. 

Allison Pelot has been coaching people in holistic nutrition and fitness for almost 20 years now. She has a practice in Portland Oregon and a health Podcast called Integrate Yourself.

Understanding Addiction

http://learntruehealth.com/understanding-addiction/

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.

Chasing The Scream Book

In writing Chasing The Scream, 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.

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.

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.

“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. 

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. 

“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.

Rat Park

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.

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.

In the Rat Park, rats had colored balls, rat-food, and tunnels to play along with other rats.

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.

“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.”

Understanding Depression And Anxiety

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.

“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.”

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. 

Eye-opening Situation

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.

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.

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.

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! 

“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.”

Lost Connection Book

The Lost Connection 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.

“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.”

Personal Experience

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.

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.

“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. 

Grief And Depression

Johann Hari says grief is not a pathology but instead a natural and human response. Depression and grief have the same symptoms.

“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.”

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.

Being Happy

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.

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.

“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.”

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.

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. 

“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.” 

Bio

Johann Hari is the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing the Scream, which is being adapted into a feature film. He was twice named Newspaper Journalist of the Year by Amnesty International UK. 

Johann Hari has written for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and others, and he is a regular panelist on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” His TED talk, “Everything You Think You Know About Addiction Is Wrong,” has more than 21 million views.

My Kid Cures Cancer

http://learntruehealth.com/my-kid-cures-cancer/

My Kid Cures Cancer is an excellent resource for parents who have a child with cancer.  It’s never easy when your child is suffering from the disease, and some parents go into panic mode. The journey wasn’t easy for my guests Ryan and Teddy Sternagel. This episode is all about how they weathered that storm.

How It All Began

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.

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.

The Lump

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.

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.

“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.” 

More Red Flags

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.

“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.”

The Official Diagnosis

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.

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.

Finding The Right Doctor

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. 

“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.”

Moving To Utah

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.

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.

“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.

Researching On Alternative Treatments

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.

“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. 

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.”

I agree with the effectiveness of saunas.  Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was on my show recently where he explained the benefits of sweating and taking a cooling shower after the sauna to rise out the toxins.

Incidentally, Ryan Sternagel also revealed that his sauna unit is also from Sunlighten.  For those interested in getting a sauna, you can get $150 discount just by mentioning My Kid Cures Cancer upon purchase. 

Cause Of Ryder’s Cancer

Cancer is caused by many factors. In fact, a past guest of mine, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, said during his interview in episode 136 that all cancer is from fungus.

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.

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.

Extra Resources

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.

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.

Additional Tips

The Sternagels also provided the following tips to help may sure your stays in tip-top shape:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Ryder In Remission

Ryder is currently in remission. After stopping chemotherapy, he takes scans every three months. It’s a wait-and-see approach. 

“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. 

Teddy Sternagel adds, “We as parents have an intuitive gift. It’s there for a reason, and you just have to follow it.” 

Bio

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.

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. 

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. 

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. 

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. 

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!”

Sustainability Of Plant-Based Nutrition

http://learntruehealth.com/sustainability-o…-based-nutrition/

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.

I also strongly recommend listeners to check out my episode with Sharon Palmer on episode 197. She revealed a lot of things you need to know about a plant-based diet.

General Perceptions

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.

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.

"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."

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.

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!

Major Problems

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.

"From an environmental standpoint, they concentrate all the manure. In effect, the manure accumulates in lagoons and storage tanks," said Sharon Palmer.

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.

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.

"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." 

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."

Present Focus

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.

"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." 

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."

How We Grow Our Food

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.

"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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

Impact Of Pesticides

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.

Personally, my interview with Dr. Stephanie Seneff on episode 89 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.

"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."

What We Can Do

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. 

"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."

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.

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. 

"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.

Changing Our Diet

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.

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.

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!

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.

"Research shows that you can train your taste buds and gradually reduce preference level for sweet and salty," Sharon Palmer said.

Sharon Palmer's Books

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.

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.

Food: What The Heck Should I Eat?

Diet Myths 

http://learntruehealth.com/diet-myths/

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.

Growing Up Years

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.

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.

“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.”

Food As Medicine

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.

“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.

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.

“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.” 

Finding The Right Diet

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.

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.

Institute For Integrative Nutrition

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.

Sunlighten Sauna

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 Sunlighten sauna. Dr. Mark Hyman is also an owner of a sauna unit and attests to the health benefits of doing saunas every day.

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.

What The Heck Should We Eat Book

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.

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.

Statistics Don’t Lie

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.

“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.

Effects On the Environment

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.

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. 

“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. 

Importance Of Fiber

Dr. Mark Hyman says fiber is important because it fertilizes the good bacteria in the gut. He also says that our microbiome is essential.

“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.

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.

Dangers Of Sugar And Flour

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.

“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. 

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.”

Busting More Diet Myths

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.

“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.

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.

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. 

“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.

To know more about diet-related topics, I recommend listening to my past episodes with Dr. Caldwell EsselstynDr. Jack Wolfson, and Dr. William Davis.

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.

Food Peace 

http://learntruehealth.com/food-peace/

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.

On A Mission

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.

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.

“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.”

Busting Myths

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.

“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.

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.

PCOS

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.

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.

“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.”

Body Shaming

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.

“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.

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.

“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.

Trust Your Body

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.

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!

“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 

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.” 

Dangers Of Eating Disorders

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. 

“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.

Model Healthy Behavior

Julie Duffy Dillon thinks that sometimes, people want kids to know what’s healthy and not healthy. How kids learn nutrition is interesting.

“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.”

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.

“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.

Tips For Adults

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.

“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.”

Julie Duffy Dillon listed down this very doable 3-step procedure that will ultimately help you achieve food peace:

  1. Permit yourself to eat. You’ve tried diets and know they don’t help long term. What if you experimented with permitting yourself instead?
  1. 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.
  1. 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.

Learn True Health Special Episode

http://learntruehealth.com/learn-true-health/

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.

Different Person

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.

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.

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. 

Heartwarming Emails

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.

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.

Healing Journey

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.

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.

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.

Career Shifts

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.

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.”

Resource For Multiple Illnesses

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.

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.

I interviewed Jen Saltzman on the show several times. 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.

“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.

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.  

Valuable Guests

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!

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.

Adopting A Plant-Based Diet

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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. 

Weight Problem

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.

But then a Naturopath, Dr. Megan Saunders, 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.

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.

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.

The Benefit Of Saunas

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.

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.

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.

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.   

Personal Progress

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.

I am also taking chlorella by ENERGYbits, whose creator Catharine Arnston was on my show recently.  Listeners can avail of a 20% discount by putting in the LTH code upon checkout on the ENERGYbits website.

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!

Recommended Resources

If you want to know more about weight loss resistance and everything about environmental toxins, I suggest watching the I Thrive documentary series which I have been promoting on my show in the past episodes.

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.

Other episodes will tackle topics like how to create a healthy boundary for yourself and workplace, and how to heal emotionally from food. For more updates, do join our Facebook group as well or write to me at support@learntruehealth.com.

I’d also like to thank my listener, Naomi, who is my first Patreon supporter for March. If you love this show, please go to the Patreon website and support the Learn True Health podcast.  Any monetary amount is much appreciated and will all go to the cost of producing newsworthy and commercial-free episodes for you.

Lastly, please take time to leave a 5-star rating on iTunes, to help the Learn True Health podcast reach more people. Please share this show with your friends. Let’s help as many people as we can. And like I always say, let’s turn this ripple into a tidal wave.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Algae 

http://learntruehealth.com/algae/

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.

Discovering Algae

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.

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.

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.

Making A Difference

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.

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. 

Origin Of Algae

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.

“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.”

Quality Of Products

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.

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.

“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.”

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.

Competitive Industry

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.

“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.

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.

“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. 

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.”

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.

Spirulina Algae

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.

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.

“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.”

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.” 

Benefits Of Spirulina

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.

“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.”

Chlorella

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. 

“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.” 

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.”

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.

Importance of Vitamin K2

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.

“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.”

I can vouch for what Catharine Arnston said. I had Dr. Carolyn Dean on episode 227 of my show 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.

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.

For added reference on chlorella, I’m inviting my listeners to check out my interview with Dr. Dietrich Kinghardt on episode 218. 

Energybits Products

Catharine Arnston has a fantastic line of products called ENERGYbits, RECOVERYbits, SKINNYbits, and VITALITYbits. All her products are 100% organically grown, non-GMO spirulina and chlorella algae tablets.

“These are complete food-based replacements for multivitamins. They are eco-friendly and a natural source of omega food,” assures Catharine Arnston.

To celebrate the second anniversary of the Learn True Health, we have a special treat for all the listeners to Learn True Health.  Upon ordering any of the products on Catharine Arnston’s website, don’t forget to enter the LTH coupon code to avail of the 20% discount upon checkout.

Bio

Catharine Arnston has a thirty-year career as an international Attache for the Canadian and British Governments, publisher of an international magazine and Founder of three startups. 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. 

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.

Reversing Diabetes

http://learntruehealth.com/reversing-diabetes

Reversing Diabetes Through Nutrition

Reversing diabetes naturally through nutrition is something people should look into. Robby Barbaro, my guest today, attests that the risks are lower and it has been proven effective.

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 www.learntruehealth.com/ithrive.

Diagnosed With Type 1 Diabetes

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.

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.

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.

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.  

Diet Shift

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.

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.

Typical Diet

“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.”

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.

“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. 

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.”

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.

“I felt good, my skin cleared, and allergies are gone. Every time you eat well, you are nourishing every single cell,” Robby Barbaro said. 

Importance Of Insulin

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.

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.

“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.

Insulin Resistance

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. 

“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.

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:

  • How many units of insulin we’re injecting
  • Total carb consumption
  • Blood glucose testing 

Difference Between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes

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.

“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.

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. 

“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.

Testing Yourself

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.

“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.

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.

“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.

Coaching Program

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.

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.

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. 

“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.

Bio

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. 

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. 

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.

Heart Disease 

http://learntruehealth.com/heart-disease

Heart disease is one of the major diseases that many people are suffering from. 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.

Early Years

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.

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.

Career Shift

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.

“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.  

Twelve-Year Study On Heart Disease

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.

“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.”

Significant Findings

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.

“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.

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.

Revision In Diet

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.

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. 

“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.

Success Rate

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.

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.

Recommended Diet

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.

“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.” 

Among the vegetables that Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn recommends are:

  • Bok Choy
  • Swiss Chard
  • Kale
  • Collard Greens
  • Beet Greens
  • Mustard Greens
  • Turnip Green
  • Napa Cabbage
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Cilantro
  • Parsley
  • Spinach
  • Arugula
  • Asparagus

He also cautions against taking sugar like Stevia. Apparently, Stevia affects receptors in the brain.

“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.”

Prevent & Reverse Cookbook

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.

For those who would want to try his recommended recipes, I suggest getting his Prevent & Reverse cookbook 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!

“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. 

Additional Resources

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. 

I guested Dr. Jack Wolfson on episode 101.  In the episodes, he talks about how he saw many patients suffering from heart disease and introduced them to natural medicine. Also check out episode 167 with Dr. William Davis who says that having the right diet supports a normal, stable and a healthy blood sugar level.

Willpower 

http://learntruehealth.com/willpower-stop-bingeing/

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.

Former Binge Eater

Dr. Glenn Livingston talked extensively about how to stop bingeing on episode 56 of the Learn True Health.  He gave a lot of tips in that episode, so I suggest everyone check it out.

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.

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.

Family Of Psychologists

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!

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.

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.

Finding The Connection

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.

“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.

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.

“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.” 

Justifying Emotional Discomfort

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.

“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.” 

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.”

Understanding Willpower

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.

“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.”

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. 

Lizard Brain

The lizard brain has the eat, mate or kills mindset.  There is no love. Plus, addiction targets the lizard brain.

“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.”

Developing Willpower

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. 

“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.'”

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. 

“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.” 

He adds, “So what you want to do is make sure that you know both sides of that deprivation equation and make a decision.” 

Get High On Food

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.

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.

Bio

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. 

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. 

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.

Fasting For Healing  

http://learntruehealth.com/fasting-for-healing

Fasting is a fantastic way to heal naturally from several health conditions. 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.   

Discovering Fasting  

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.  

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. 

Pursuing A Medical Degree  

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.  

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.   

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.  

TrueNorth Health Center  

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.   

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.  

Track Record  

"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."  

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.  

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.  

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.   

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.  

"We had 174 consecutive patients who underwent fasting, and we have seen a wide variety of conditions," said Dr. Alan Goldhamer.  

What Is Fasting?  

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.   

"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.  

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.  

"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.  

The Truth About Salt  

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.  

"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.  

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.   

"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.  

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.   

Among the physical effects of salt include:  

  1. Fluid retention
  2. Joint pains
  3. Edema
  4. Swelling
  5. Non-healing of wounds 
  6. Congestive heart failure
  7. Respiratory issues 

"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.  

GMO  

In episode 133 of the Learn True Health, Jeffrey Smith was my guest.  He is the creator of anti-GMO documentaries and GMO awareness.   

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.   

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.   

"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.  

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.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer's Diet  

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.   

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.  

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.   

Best Diet Choices  

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. 

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.  

"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."  

Bio

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. TrueNorth is the largest facility in the world specializing in medically supervised water-only fasting. He is the author of the Health Promoting Cookbook and the co-author of The Pleasure Trap.  

Dr. Alan Goldhamer is the principal investigator in numerous studies involving fasting that have been published in the peer-reviewed medical literature.

Homeopathy Choice

http://learntruehealth.com/homeopathy-choice/

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.   

Humble Beginnings  

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.   

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.  

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.   

Personal Health Issues  

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.   

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.  

“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.  

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.   

Understanding Homeopathy  

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.  

And that’s so interesting about homeopathy. You can use some poisonous substance, dilute it, and it becomes a homeopathic version of that substance.   

“There’s a specific process for the diluted solution. It has to be well done and done by a pharmacy,” explains Paola Brown.  

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.  

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.   

Recommended For Moms  

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.  

“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.”   

Homeopathy Choice  

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.   

“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.  

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.  

FDA Draft Guidance  

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.  

Prejudice Against Homeopathy  

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.   

“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.  

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.”   

Americans for Homeopathy Choice takes issue with these statements because:   

a) The majority of mothers who use homeopathy are highly educated individuals who have the right to use this medicine in their homes. 

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.  

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.  

“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.”  

More Pressing Issues  

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.   

“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.  

Empowerment  

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.   

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.”  

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.  

“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.  

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.”  

Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets  

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.  

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.   

“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.   

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.”  

Bio

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.   

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). She is not a homeopath but is a mom who is passionate about homeopathy, using it as the primary form of healthcare for her family and animals. Because Paola Brown is not a health professional, she can speak freely about homeopathy, and how it has cured her of her many autoimmune issues.

Homeopathy 

http://learntruehealth.com/homeopathy/

Homeopathy effectively treats fever and several other conditions. 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.

Discovering Homeopathy

Cilla Whatcott has guested on episode 137 and episode 155 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.

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.

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. 

“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.”

What A Fever Means

Cilla Whatcott has a new video documentary coming out called Real Immunity.  The 2-part documentary one of the topics extensively covered is the subject regarding fever.

Among the experts, Cilla Whatcott included in the film is Dr. Debra Gambrell who I have guested on my podcast’s episode 164. 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.

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.

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.

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.

“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. 

What A Fever Does

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.

Fever And Drugs

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.

“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.

Other Conditions

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.

“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.

Homeoprophylaxis

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.

“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.”

My past guest, Dr. Carolyn Dean on episode 227, has the same conviction. She encourages people to continue the fight in implementing safe and natural alternatives to treat various health conditions. 

Truth About Vaccines

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.

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.

Educating people to veer away from vaccines is hard work, but some doctors strive to push that cause. I had Dr. Paul Thomas in episode 224, who has over 13,000 patients in his Portland, Oregon practice. He says most of his patients are unvaccinated.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

“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.

Mission Behind Real Immunity Documentary

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.

“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.”

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.

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.

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.

Making The Film

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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

“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. 

Challenges In Making The Film

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.

“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.

Power Of Film

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

ReMag Pico-Ionic Liquid Magnesium Supplement by Dr. Dean: http://amzn.to/2H9f1ub

BOOK: Magnesium Miracle - Second Edition

Magnesium

http://learntruehealth.com/magnesium/

Magnesium is an essential mineral that can cure various health conditions. 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.  

Early Challenges  

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.   

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.  

“But we know what happened. The commercialization of medicine and disease happened, and medicine just turned into the dark side,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.  

Roadblocks  

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.  

“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.  

Legal Challenges  

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.  

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.  

“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. 

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.  

“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.   

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.   

The Magnesium Miracle Book  

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.   

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.  

Magnesium And Sugar  

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.   

“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.   

Burning Fats  

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.   

“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.  

Ongoing Debate  

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.  

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.   

Codex Alimentarius  

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.   

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 2005 National Association of Nutrition Professionals conference  

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.  

Importance of Dietary Supplements  

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.  

“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.  

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.  

“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.”  

ReMag Supplements

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.  

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.  

“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.  

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.”  

Suggested Diet  

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.  

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.  

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!  

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.   

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. 

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.  

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.  

Diet Tips

For more diet tips, Dr. Carolyn Dean personally recommends linking to the website of Dr. Jason Fung, also known as The Diet Doctor. Dr. Jason Fung is a Canadian nephrologist and the leading expert on how to fast the right way.  

People have to take responsibility for their health on so many levels. A Naturopath or a Holistic doctor each has their way of running things. They have their line of supplements, so do your research.   

“When you take charge of your body and provide it with the best absorbable basic nutrient building blocks, you can overcome most health problems,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean.   

Additional Resources

“Upside: Profiting from the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead” http://amzn.to/2EvnXf0

"The Age Curve: How To Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm" http://amzn.to/2sjSbMT

 

Demography 

http://learntruehealth.com/demography/

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.  

Advertising Industry  

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.  

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.   

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.  

Discovering Demographics  

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.   

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.    

Generation X Revelation  

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.    

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.  

“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.  

Effects of Generation X  

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.  

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.  

“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.”  

Labor Problem  

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.  

“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.   

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.”  

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.    

Diving Deep   

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. 

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.  

Crime Rate  

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.  

Millenial Problem  

“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.”  

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.  

Demographics And Health  

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.  

“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.   

Silent Generation  

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.   

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.   

“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.  

Distribution Problem  

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.   

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.   

“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.”  

Fertility Issues  

In the recent Heavy Metals Summit, 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.   

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.   

But that’s a challenge nowadays because both parents need to work. And the added stress contributes to fertility issues.   

Housing Problem  

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.   

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. 

“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.  

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.  

Kenneth Gronbach’s Books  

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.  

Kenneth Gronbach’s books include: 

Upside: Profiting from the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead 

Decades of Differences: Making It Work

The Age Curve: How To Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm  

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.  

Looking Ahead  

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.  

As far as commerce is concerned, he cites three categories where there is a significant possibility for growth:  

  1. Healthcare – demand for better food
  2. Eldercare – going to be off the charts
  3. Deathcare- the need for more funeral homes and crematoriums 

“There will be a diversity of cultures in the future. The power of shifting demography changes commerce like medicine, food, and everything that we consume,” said Kenneth Gronbach.  

Bio

 Kenneth Gronbach is an internationally respected demographer who has been able to forecast societal, commercial, economic, cultural and political phenomena with uncanny accuracy. His unusual blend of marketing savvy and common sense demography, based on twenty years of proprietary demographic study, set him apart. Kenneth Gronbach keynotes all over the United States and does customized demographic research.  

You will find that Kenneth Gronbach’s stable position that the United States is the best Nation on earth and his firm belief that the country’s best days are ahead seasoned his spirited presentations with an apparent pro-American enthusiasm.  

Kenneth Gronbach built KGA Advertising, INC., a $40 million consumer/retail advertising agency, from the ground up in the 1980’s and 1990’s. One of his clients, a fashion apparel retailer, grew from $10 million in annual sales to over $400 million on Kenneth Gronbach’s watch.  

Kenneth Gronbach’s hobbies include building hot rod Mustangs and Porsches. He and his family enjoy boating and fishing on Long Island Sound.   

Kenneth Gronbach graduated from California State University at Long Beach and currently lives in Connecticut with his Baby Boomer wife of 41 years and two Generation Y daughters.

Book: Dirty Genes http://amzn.to/2nHlhBf

www.drbenlynch.com

Dirty Genes 

http://learntruehealth.com/dirty-genes/

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. 

Childhood Interest  

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.   

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.  

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!   

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.  

Focus On Epigenetics  

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.  

“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. 

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.”  

And that’s so true! I first heard about epigenetics from Dr. Joe Wallach. He wrote the book, Epigenetics: The Death of the Genetic Theory of Disease Transmission. 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.    

Air Purifiers  

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.    

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.  

“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.”  

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.   

Gas And Cooking  

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.   

“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.”  

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.   

“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.”   

Dirty Genes Course  

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.   

“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.  

According to Dr. Ben Lynch, folate is essential in things like:  

  • regulating white blood cells 
  • fighting infection 
  • regulating red blood cells so we can breathe 
  • regulate our platelets 
  • nourish our neurotransmitters so we can think 
  • helps repair DNA when chemicals invade into our system 
  • essential in kids’ growth 
  • makes skin healthy since our skin creates skin cells all the time  

Importance Of Folic Acid  

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.  

“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.  

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.  

“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.   

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.  

StrateGene  

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.   

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.  

“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.  

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.   

What are Dirty Genes?  

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.   

“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. 

Juicing, Raw Foods And Cooking  

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.   

“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.”  

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.   

Incidentally, I had the Vitamix expert Lenny Gale on my show a couple of times.  His website Life is No Yoke 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.   

Histamine Intolerance  

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.  

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.  

Link Between Vaccines And Genes  

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.   

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.   

“You can take all the supplements you want, but if you have metals, genes won’t work well. Avoid metals like aluminum because they interfere with neurotransmitters in the brain,” said Dr. Ben Lynch.  

He adds, “I am not pro-vaccine, but I don’t think they are all bad. I just think if we do use them, they should be used selectively.”  

I recently had a great interview with Dr. Paul Thomas on vaccines, and the need to have a vaccine-friendly plan. We talked extensively about choosing when and which vaccines are safe so do check out that episode as well.  

Dr. Benjamin Lynch, ND received his Cell and Molecular Biology, BS from the University of Washington and his doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND) from Bastyr University. His passion for identifying the cause of disease-directed him towards nutrigenomics and methylation dysfunction.   

Currently, Dr. Benjamin Lynch researches, writes and presents worldwide on the topic of MTHFR, methylation defects and genetic control. He is the President of www.SeekingHealth.com, a supplement company oriented towards disease prevention and health promotion. He also founded and directed www.seekinghealth.org, an educational institution providing specialized training for both health professionals and consumers.  He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife, Nadia, and three boys, Tasman, Mathew and Theodor.

Safe Vaccines 

http://learntruehealth.com/safe-vaccines/

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.  

Growing Up In Africa  

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.   

“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.  

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.   

Residency Years  

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.   

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.  

The Fine Line  

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.   

“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.   

Autism And MMR  

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.  

Dr. Paul Thomas across the article 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.  

“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.  

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.   

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.   

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.   

Shifting to Alternative Medicine  

Dr. Paul Thomas started knowing more about alternative medicine around November 2007. He became active in attending conferences and learning about Integrative Medicine.    

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.  

“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.”   

Blessing In Disguise  

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.    

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.   

Safe Vaccines  

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.   

“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.”  

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.  

Informed Choices  

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.   

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.  

The Vaccine-Friendly Plan   

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.  

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.   

“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.”  

Vaccine-Friendly Plan Limitations   

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.   

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.  

“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.”  

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.  

Hepatitis Vaccine  

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.   

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.   

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.   

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.  

“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.”  

Chicken Pox Vaccine  

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.   

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.   

“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.”  

Big Bucks  

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.  

“Two big incentives are pushing doctors and hospitals to do vaccines. One is financial, and the other is quality measures,” reveals Dr. Paul Thomas.   

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.”  

Herd Immunity  

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.   

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.   

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.   

“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.”  

PHOI  

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.   

“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.  

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.   

“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.”  

Immunosuppressant  

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.    

“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.”   

Be Informed  

Speaking of toxic load, you’d be surprised to know how much toxins and heavy metals we have in our body. There was a Heavy Metals Summit recently, and I’m inviting listeners to sign up to check out the fantastic speakers participating in the summit.  

“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.” 

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.   

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.   

Dr. Paul Thomas is the Founder of PHOI (Pediatric Health Outcomes Initiative). He is a Founding Director of PIC (Physicians for Informed Consent). And a Co-Chair for OFMF (Oregonians for Medical Freedom). He is the co-author (with Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D.) of The Vaccine-Friendly Plan: Dr. Paul’s Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health-From Pregnancy Through Your Child’s Teen Years published 2016 from Ballantine.

Developing Consciousness For Healing  

http://learntruehealth.com/developing-consciousness-for-healing/

Developing consciousness for healing is a power of the mind that most of us have yet to explore and maximize. Being healthy is not just about being physically fit.   

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.  

Starting Point  

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.  

“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.”  

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.    

We Are Energy  

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.   

“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.   

Roadblocks  

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.  

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.   

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.  

“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.”  

What Is Dowsing   

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.   

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.  

“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.”  

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.   

“Knowledge that is not limited by time and space perception. But rather access to other dimensions of the self,” adds Ned Wolf.  

Dowsing For Healing   

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.   

“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.”   

Our Powerful Brain  

I am reminded of this fascinating book called The Holographic Universe 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.  

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!  

“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.”  

Taking Accountability  

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.  

“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.”  

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 Dr. Raymond Moody’s books on the subject are an excellent resource.  

“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.”  

Radionics  

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.  

“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.”   

Actionable Steps For Healing  

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.  

“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.”  

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.   

“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.  

Spiritual Mentoring  

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.  

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 Free Your Anxiety webinar so you can end your worry and control your fear from this day forward.  

Bio

Ned Wolf wrote his first book when he was seven years old. He wanted to write a compilation of what he found useful in life so that he wouldn’t forget the essential ideas later on.  

When Ned Wolf is not working on his novels, he serves clients as a counselor, mediator and natural healer. He uses vibrational therapies, including Reiki energy, Rebirthing breathwork, and vibrational remedies that are produced radionically.  

Ned Wolf got his Holistic Health Practitioner Degree from Pacific School of Holistic Health 1987. He learned a lot about himself playing tennis twice a week and singing.   

Ned Wolf writes music for the soprano sax and also perform at markets, pubs and open mic nights. He is also a student of Tai Chi and has taken much inspiration from Jane Roberts Seth books.

Clean Protein And Plant-Based Diets

http://learntruehealth.com/clean-protein-plant-based-diets/

Clean protein is something more people are looking into, along with embracing plant-based diets. 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.   

Different Lifestyle  

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.   

“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.  

Rising To The Challenge 

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.  

“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.  

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.    

Rude Awakening  

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.   

“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  

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.   

“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.”  

The 12 Amino Acids Daily Requirement  

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.   

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:  

  • How much cholesterol goes along with the protein?
  • Is the protein I’m consuming inflammatory in my body?
  • How many pathogens or antibiotics might be lurking within the tissue?
  • What kind of damage did the making of that protein do to our land and water? 
  • Does it add to climate change? 

Importance Of Fiber  

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.   

“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.  

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.    

Benefits of Eating Clean Protein  

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.  

“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.   

Kathy Freston’s Typical Diet  

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.   

For those who want to try, here are Kathy Freston’s typical daily food choices:  

    Breakfast  

  • Plant-based yogurt with chopped apple and walnuts
  • Oatmeal with almonds and soy milk
  • 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.  

“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.”  

    Lunch 

  • Sauteed tofu over rice and salad  

    Dinner 

  • Rice with beer beans, cream of broccoli soup
  • Arugula salad with pears, pistachios, sliced onions and tomatoes 

Food Myths  

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.  

“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.  

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!   

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.   

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!  

Other Sources Of Vegan Protein 

 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!  

“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.  

Speaking of vegan protein, I was skeptical at first. However, I changed my mind after interviewing raw vegan athlete Suzanne Mcgee on Episode 41. 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.  

“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.  

Saving Money  

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.   

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.   

“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.”  

She adds, “Cancer and diabetes are traced to too much animal protein. And they cost nations a lot of tax money.”  

In effect, you become less productive. Apparently, Kathy Freston says it’s a lot of government complexity because meat is subsidized.   

“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.”  

Smooth Transition  

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.  

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.  

Kathy Freston also says that part of the process is to keep moving forward. And be open to alternative food choices.   

“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. 

What To Do When You Travel  

Kathy Freston says traveling is not a problem since more restaurants now have plant-based menus. Some even bring their food like seeds.  

She also suggests using the Happy Cow app for a list of good places to eat. Mexican food is always a safe choice.   

Clean Protein Recipes 

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!  

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.   

Blue Zones  

Kathy Freston’s boyfriend happens to be Dan Beuttner, the New York Times bestselling author of Blue Zones. Apparently, he discovered five places in the world—the Blue Zones, where the healthiest people live and have long lives.  

“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.  

Kathy Freston’ Books  

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. 

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! 

Bio 

Kathy Freston 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. She has become an activist and advocate for eating this way.   

She says it’s funny how you find your passion and then your passion leads you to your life’s purpose. Kathy Freston now writes books and does media appearances. She shares in whatever way she can so that other people also feel empowered to eat for their health and overall well-being.

Menstrual Cycle 

http://learntruehealth.com/menstrual-cycle

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.

Great Childhood

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.

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.

Heavy Periods

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.

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.

Effects Of Taking Birth Control Pills

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.

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.

“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. 

Seeing An Acupuncturist

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.

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.

Institute For Integrative Nutrition

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.

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.

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.

There’s More To Nutrition

“One thing I learned is how food is connected to our hormones and our period,” said Nicole Jardim.

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.

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.

Current State Of Women’s Health

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.

“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.” 

Bioidentical Hormones

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.

“There’s a lot of different factors that you have to address before jumping into a hormone replacement therapy,” said Nicole Jardim.

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.

Success Stories

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 Nicole Jardim’s Fix Your Period Course.

“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.” 

Changing Diets

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.

“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.”

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.

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.

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.

Changing Lifestyle

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.

“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.

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.

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 The Hormone Cure & The Hormone Reset Diet).

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.

Vaccine Dangers and Homeschooling Benefits  

http://learntruehealth.com/vaccine-dangers

Vaccine dangers have been rising in recent years. 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.   

The Truth About Vaccines  

Before we dive into the episode, let me invite all you listeners to sign up for Ty Bollinger’s, The Truth About Vaccines documentary series.  Running from January 25 to 31, you’ll have free access to the videos. You may sign up for the series at www.learntruehealth.com/vaccines.    

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.  

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!  

First Baby  

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.    

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.  

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.  

Second Baby  

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.  

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.  

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.  

“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.”  

Gut Issues  

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.  

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.   

Early Coping Years   

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.  

“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.  

Another Obstacle  

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.  

“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.  

Being Dropped From Insurance  

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.   

“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.”  

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.  

DAN! Protocol   

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.  

Aydan was given supplementation and was put on a restrictive diet right away. Part of the diet was taking away gluten and dairy products.   

“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. 

Unvaccinated Daughter  

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.  

“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.”  

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.  

Preventative Care for Unvaccinated Children  

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.   

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.   

“Her immune system is doing everything that it’s supposed to do and I breastfed her for three years,” said April Boden.  

Recommended Solutions   

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.   

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.   

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.   

Son-Rise Program  

April Boden says another solution is to spend time together with your autistic child. Aydan is currently under the Son-Rise Program which helps families cope with an autistic member of the family. 

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.  

Benefits Of Fermented Foods  

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.   

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.  

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.   

Homeschooling  

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.   

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.  

“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.  

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.   

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.  

Trivium Education  

Before we had a child, we came across the Trivium Education. 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.   

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.  

Helpful Resources 

April Boden strongly recommends this book by Susan Bauer called The Well-Trained Mind. She says signing up with the HSLDA organization also helps a lot.  

HSLDA stands for Home School Legal Defense Association. 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.  

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.  

We have to take steps to protect ourselves.  I’m very interested in homeoprophylaxis, so I’m currently doing that with my family through Cilla Whatcott 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.  

I also had Dr. Stephanie Seneff on the show who talked about the connection between vaccines and autism. On episode 89, she shared all the reasons why the MMR vaccine is causing autism so do check out that episode.   

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.   

April Boden has been running her podcast, Truther Talk with her friend, Virstyne Henry discussing Natural Health and healing among other cutting-edge topics since 2011.

Mental Illness

http://learntruehealth.com/mental-illness/

Mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, OCD, and panic attacks are usually treated with medication in the world of conventional medicine. 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.

Broken Family

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.

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.

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.

Both her parents eventually remarried. However, both divorced their second spouses after a few years. 

Coping Mechanism

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.

“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.”

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.

Getting Worse

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.

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.

“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.

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.”

Waking Up To Realization

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,

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.

“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.”

Piyo

It is a beach body program that features full body movements and stretching. Kathryn Keefer taught classes for two years in North Carolina.

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.

“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.”

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.

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. 

Effects of The Right Diet

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.

“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.

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.

“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.

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.

Recommended Recipes

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Tapping

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.

Kathryn Keefer learned about tapping from Nick Ortner who is the author of  The Tapping Solution For Manifesting Your Greatest Self Tapping is applying acupressure to the body.

“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.

On episode 103 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.

Finding Gratitude

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.

Check out my episodes 54 and 166 where Michael Weinberger expounded on The Happiness Formula. He’s such an inspiration for overcoming his depression and helping people to find happiness by embracing gratitude.

Importance Of Self-Care

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.

“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. 

Institute For Integrative Nutrition

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.

I first came to find out about IIN after interviewing Donnie De Santi on episode 58. He was the first health coach I had on my show. I immediately called IIN after the show and signed up right away,

“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.”

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.
