Some factors driving this increase?

The second and third most likely reason to visit a doctors office are joint pain and spinal disorders. why are people seeking an MD instead of a chiropractor?

Is chiropractic better at caring for certain conditions than is an MD?

What about costs?  

Is chiropractic cost effective?  And what does that mean to be cost effective rather than simply effective?

Their food is inside the barn with 100,000 birds walking in each other's feces and they rarely move more than a few feet.

IV nutrient therapy can heal the body much faster than taking pills.

Myers Cocktail, developed 30 years ago by Dr. John Myers can be a catalyst to help people recover from migraines, hangovers, fibromyalgia, depression allergies, heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, crohn’s disease cardiovascular diseases, parkinson’s and more.

How? Sounds like quackery

The documentary, What The Health attempts to dismantle all benefits of meat products using their idealistic perspective for us all to become vegan.

These producers and interviewer had the opportunity to present the truth and expose the foundations that are supposedly helping people who are in desperate need in their health.

Here are a couple of things to consider:


First, anybody can say anything they want about anything or anyone. 
 
Second, people are easily influenced and more inclined to believe an accusation or what they hear that justify's  their opinion because it supports their story. Then they become angry and lash out at others who don't align with their ideals and opinions.
 
While there are some disturbing truths in What The Health, their claims about eggs being dangerous and diabetes being caused by meat, not sugar is ludicrous. They even promoted a doctor who used sugar and carbs to heal people many years ago.

Dr Webster, Dr Rudman and myself will shoot holes in this documentary with facts using unbiased studies, experience and that new way of thinking called "logic."

I postulate that people can still have cancer while eating the most healthy diet and that systemic inflammation is connected to most disease, therefore mental, emotional stress, even being worried about having cancer can bring on cancer or other diseases.

Why do some of people who become vegan feel great and have amazing blood work and their spouse who may have followed the same vegan eating protocol, feel so bad and gain weight?

The moral of the story? Results don’t lie!!!! If something you're doing is proven to work, keep doing it.

We are all different in how we live our lives and genetic make-up. We need focused individual attention.

Dr, Rudman MD Formula Wellness 

60% of hair loss sufferers would rather have more hair than money or friends.

Almost half (47%)  of hair loss sufferers would spend their life savings to regain a full head of hair.

Hair loss can be sign of something bigger- side effects of medications, too much testosterone (or DHT), autoimmune disease, low thyroid, high thyroid, severe vitamin deficiency.  (not to mention stress, anxiety both of which can cause full blown baldness)

Hair takes months to grow - like fingernails its good look back at overall health and nutrition - with additional things that affect it negatively.

Dr Rudman will also discuss the different theories about the causes of hair loss and the problems/benefits of medications, topicals, injections, and surgical procedures available to treat hair loss

What is stem cell/microionized fat injections (ALMI procedure) and can it replace a hair transplant?

Is your doctor testing for sickness/medical diseases or how to keep you well?

Are you aging faster than you should?

Are you increasing your cancer risk

What are you doing that may be lowering your testosterone

How would you know the answer to these questions without a thorough medial assessment?

What is a thorough medical assessment and why are most doctors not performing these in their offices?

Dr. Brian Rudman MD from Formula Wellness  board certified Anesthesiologist since 1997 and taken his 20 years experience with the medical and surgical problems that patients face into a new role that focuses on preventing illness and preserving wellness.  

He says, there is a missing piece - treating and preserving wellness is something that we as a medical community can be doing better, especially as the outside environmental threats continue to make it more difficult to stay "Well".

Website:  www.formulawellnesscenter.com

Dr Rudman's test can even show whether you're predominantly a carb burner vs fat burner

We'll also discuss the connection between disease such as cancer and heart disease and mitochondrial function

Employers spend a lot of money training employees which can cost much more money to the employer if the employee leaves within 6 months

Employees are not aware of what their employee is thinking and how satisfied they are with their job and culture. 

 

Tracy Timm  www.tracytimm.com is a Yale grad in behavioral psychology and a human capital advisor for dallas’s fastest growing companies. She's a coach for executives and young professionals and been an entrepreneur and business owner since 2014

She's promoting her one-on-one coaching and The Nth Degree Academy online course that launches in December (11th)

 

Tracy said, "Employees who scored low on “life satisfaction” stayed home from work 1.25 more days per month than those with higher scores, adding up to about 15 additional days off per year." 

  Depression and obesity are the top two chronic health conditions driving health-related costs for employers. 

87 % of employers are committed to workplace wellness and 73 % offer a wellness program

And a survey showed more than 60 % of employers said workplace wellness programs reduced their organizations’ healthcare costs.

 

        Tracy said, "workforces focus on the WRONG thing to fix dissatisfaction at work." Wellbeing starts with our need to belong and derive satisfaction from our work. 

 

If we hate what we do, but we spend all of our energy pretending to like or just getting through the day, then we have very little left to give to the people in our lives who really need us

 

By being honest with ourselves and honest with the people around us that we want more and are made for more, we live more authentic and meaningful lives.

Micronutrient status is just one but critical piece of your health. 

Extensive scientific and clinical studies spanning over 50 years have repeatedly demonstrated that vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant deficiencies can adversely affect health, from acute infections to chronic disease at any age.

Common nutrient deficiencies are due to use of medication, stress/worry, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, too much exercise and disease

We decided to have a show that makes you the topic. 
We have no prepared topic because the topic is you and your questions and concerns.
We asked for questions on Facebook and live on air. 
 
Below are some of the questions written in, so make to sure listen to us dive in with science backed info on your health.
 

1. I really need to lose some weight. Type two diabetic that likes to eat, but I am using portion control. 

Will walking 2 to 3 miles 3 to 4 nights a week do any good to lower my A1C?
 
2. What is your take on the Ketogenic way of life?
 
3. The AHA and others keep flip flopping on fats and oils. Fake news and click bait everywhere. What's your final answer with studies that actually had peer review as it pertains to coconut oil, olive oil, vegetable oil, butter, ghee, etc. VS. the heart, liver, cholesterol, insulin response and trigs?
 
4. I am actually interested in detoxifying. I am not vegetarian by far although I do wish I could maintain healthy weight on a veggie diet. I was recently feeling very sluggish and run down and converted to soy milk and fasted for about 4 days where I had 2 tablespoons of dry quinoa in morning with coffee that was sweetened for breakfast, about the same for lunch minus coffee add a glass of soy milk, and for dinner I had nothing for two days except soy and the 3rd and fourth day a salad. I also had two to 3 oz of Apple cider vinegar... Mothers unfiltered organic made by Braggs. The fifth day I felt pretty darned good and have considered trying this every month. I would like to get your take on this.

My guest Tracy Timm, is a Yale graduate with a behavioral psych degree.

She’s a human capital advisor for Dallas’s fastest growing companies and a career coach for executives and young professionals.

Tracy said, we spend more hours every week working than doing anything else. Our mindset around work effects our ability to perform in every other area of our lives. 

If we hate what we do, but we spend all of our energy pretending to like or just getting through the day, then we have very little left to give to the people in our 

lives who really need us

By being honest with ourselves and honest with the people around us that we want more and are made for more, we live more authentic and meaningful lives and

 build up stores of energy that can sustain us through the hard times but also allow us to be the best version of ourselves

Tracy provides one on one coaching to guide you in the direction you want to go helping you create a detailed plan

This supplement has sugar balancing properties which could be due to the fact that it positively impacts gut bacteria.

Dr Church shares 3 myths of health you're not likely to won't hear in your doctors office


1) Does having breakfast every morning help or hurt fat loss?  

Where did this notion begin?

Aren't we suppose to break-the-fast?

Should we eat breakfast before exercise?

Is genetics a factor?


2) Do activity monitors (Fitbit, Jawbone) really prevent weight loss?

How accurate is the calorie count on these devices


3) How do you separate fake health care news from real health news?

Do you want the truth?

Or news with fake studies that suit your belief system?

1You may be aging yourself faster by missing out on this important inexpensive supplement in addition to eating poorly.

 2 The 6 most important supplements every vegan needs.

Anyone on a vegan, plant-based diet is not always healthier than everyone else.

Holistic cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn said that some vegans tend to ignore the need for supplements to achieve their goal of being healthy

Apr 29, 2017

Dr Webster and I discuss the latest research from the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports who examined the effects of different types of exercise on the body’s ability to process glucose.

One group already had healthy glucose metabolism.
The second group included those with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes.

Here is what we address and have known for years.

HIIT/burst training and it relation to fat burning, cardiovascular health, detox/cleansing
Benefits of Burst that directly benefit bone health- physical impact, reduced cortisol/stress, lowered inflammation.  

What I find interesting/frustrating is how science doesn't interview or care to interview the practitioners such as personal trainers and the results they receive with their clients.

If they had, they could have learned about the results we/I was having with my clients more than twenty years ago.

Apr 22, 2017
My guest is Ford Baker who contacted me because he felt it necessary to share his story on air to help others who struggle with his former poor habits.
 
Ford is a former overfat person who lost over 150lbs and has kept it off for three years
Ford has 3 goals. 
 
1. He wishes to help others who judge overfat people for eating horribly and not exercising to understand that they are fully aware of how they look. 
 
2. To share what the impetus was that created this huge change
 
3. To motivate others with his Today I Can message for everyone who struggles the way he did. 
 
We will learn the mind of a former fat guy, the impetus behind his change, how he changed his attitude toward himself, and how he committed to positive change and persisted through hard times.
 
How did he stayed consistent in his effort to keep his weight off and be the example he needed to be for his family and others who struggle with their health?

Apr 15, 2017
With advances in technology and the advent of the internet, people are well informed and have read every diet book and health blog about how to lose fat.  Most people often say they know what they should be doing yet they fail to do it, and do so with consistency.
 
So if the lack of information is not the issue to losing and keeping fat off. What is?. Executing our learned info with consistency and the emotional impediments and habits that shape us.
 
So many people have intentions that extend beyond fat loss, yet they fail almost as soon as they begin to create the new habits they seek.
 
Have you been told you lack willpower?
 
Too many people experience shame and self-criticism and do not need someone else telling them they are weak. 
 
As a health professional, it's crucial to identify how your client best receives information and what motivates them. There is no, one-off program unless you use genetic testing, but then even those results have to be implemented.
 
The Heath brothers who wrote, Switch. How to Change Things When Change Is Hard. They break down our thoughts and decisions expressed by “The Rider” and “The Elephant” as two mental/emotional triggers, and a third, “The Jungle”  created by Dr. Jade Teta and Dr. Keoni Teta from www.metaboliceffect.com.
 
Which one are you?
