Dr. Tim Church and I discuss a trend in modern medicine that may make doctor visits a thing of the past.

1. What do you get when you put a pharmacist in a barber shop? Better health. What??????? #pharmacist #medication #doctor Taking the medicine to the people.  https://resident360.nejm.org/content_items/treating-hypertension-in-barbershops.

 

2. We'll also discuss how we can voluntarily change our current memory, mood, problem-solving ability and overall health with certain lifestyle changes. Can we, as adults, grow new neurons? How? #brainhealth

 

What lifestyle decreases neurons, affects memory, problem-solving, mood and health? #memory #mood #depression

 

What lifestyle changes increase neuron production? New research shows we continue to grow neurons in adulthood and we are responsible for and have a choice in continuing to make them.

 

3. How could we benefit from changing calorie and supplement consumption as often as we change our underwear?

 

Important information for health as well as those seeking fat loss as well. #fatloss #weightloss #supplements

After a lifetime of consuming bread, cereals and baked goods, people become depleted in essential digestive enzymes, making food molecules enter the bloodstream without being digested triggering pain/inflammation and a variety of disease-like symptoms.


You are NOT what you eat. You are what you absorb
 
According to a study by the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, about 20 million Americans presently suffer from gluten intolerance - an adverse reaction to the protein gluten found in wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye.

"Living a gluten-free lifestyle is really not the solution for optimal health," says health educator Dr. Julie Gatza. "Optimal health means that we should be able to eat whatever we want to eat, and this becomes possible only when we ensure our bodies have all of the proper enzymes required to break down the food molecules we ingest, including hard-to-digest gluten molecules."
Dr. Julie says many people are unable to properly break down foods they consume for a variety of reasons:

  • It has to be a food in the first place
  • It has to contain vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy fats, and enzymes. These nutrient building blocks need to be digestible, absorbable and usable in order for the body to benefit from them. 
  • Insufficient production of digestive enzymes: 
  • Aging is the primary reason for lack of enzymes. “Beyond the age of 21, the production of enzymes begins to wane, and by midlife, you have about one- half of what you need. Injuries, illnesses, tiredness, being cold or being in recovery mode also prevent your body from manufacturing digestive enzymes because the body’s focus becomes keeping you alive and well. When you become sick you lose your appetite and your digestive enzyme production halts. That’s Nature’s way of saying, we’re not wasting energy on digestion, and we’re only working to heal the body’.

 

  • She mentions genetics that affects foods choices you might need vs someone without a genetic disposition


In this episode, Dr. Gatza's gives ​7 steps for taming gluten sensitivity

The road to rebuilding your tolerance for gluten will vary, person-to-person, but making the suggested changes, individuals should start seeing improvements within 14 to 30 days.

Increasing Nutrient Absorption with Enzyme Supplementation:Dr. Julie says that for individuals over the age of 21, plant-derived enzyme supplements should be taken.

David Foreman, R.Ph., “The Herbal Pharmacist”
Website: www.herbalpharmacist.co​m​

David Foreman RPh, is a pharmacist, author known nationwide as, “The Herbal Pharmacist.” Foreman’s career as a registered pharmacist gives him the foundation to now impart his expertise in physiology, pharmacology and integrative medicine to educate consumers on cutting edge approaches to natural health and healing.

His shift from traditional pharmacist to herbal pharmacist was based on his belief that education is the key to understanding that natural health plays a vital role in mainstream medicine and ​is the ​author of, “4 Pillars of Health: Heart Disease

A famous Harvard study finds our minds negatively wander about 50 percent of the time​, after ​analyzing the mind​ ​worry-based​ ​wandering affects on happiness​s​
of 2,250 adults​ the stress that results from this type of mind wandering can lead to digestive disorders, short-term memory loss, premature coronary heart disease, heart attacks and despair.

80% of Americans reported experiencing at least one symptom of stress
​such as headaches ​feeling nervous, overwhelmed, sad or anxious (http://ct.counseling.org/2017/03/survey-says-america-stressed/).

​Millennials (18-33) are the most stressed age group with Gen Xers (34-47) following closely behind (http://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/stress/2012/generations.aspx).

The number of Americans who report taking antidepressants has risen by 65% between 1999 and 2014 (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/antidepressant-use-soars-65-percent-in-15-years/).


Anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorder in the U.S. affecting 18.1% of the population every year (https://adaa.org/about-adaa/press-room/facts-statistics).

Doctors are now prescribing antidepressants for non-depression diagnosis, such as anxiety, sleep and increased mental focus. ​ Antidepressants ​
carry the FDA’s most stringent “black box” warning for life-threatening adverse effects.​

​Risks associated with antidepressants outweigh the benefits,​ ​there may be more effective ways to tackle stress, mood, focus and sleep​. I ask David, “are there supportive studies to back up your supplement claims?

All too often we take advantage of our health. From lack of self respect by allowing ourselves to gain much excess fat to preventable diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, to the belief we're an Avenger and invincible when it comes to our skin and the sun. 
 
That's until we're unhappy with how we look, or the need for skin cancer to be removed or dealt with in a more invasive manner.
 
Dr David Hensley is a dermatologist shared information about how to protect, detect and correct sun damage and the proper use of fillers for reducing aging look we may not be happy with. 
 
Other topics discussed:
  • Sun damage: wrinkles, freckling, age spots, thinning/atrophy, bruising/susceptibility to injury/poor healing
  • Protection: good and bad sunscreen ingredients
  • Correction of sun damage:-mild/early: topical retinoids, “chemical” peels, laser-moderate/severe- laser/peels
  • There is a grey market for injectables esp. Botox. These products are expensive which puts pressure on markets to find cheaper avenues. If there a concern, ask to see the Botox bottle. Most common grey market Botox will not be in English!
 
If you receive botox, laser treatments or any other treatment offered in a derm's office, Dr. Hensley educates us about proper dilution of product, injecting properly to prevent injury and failed outcomes. He speaks more in-depth  to help you make an educated decision about where to spend your hard earned dollars while preventing medical mishaps.

In 2017 there were nearly 2,000 conflicting news stories on omega-3 & vitamin D. 2000!! 
 
I now know why people want to give up believing sups work. Who benefits from sensational stories? 
 
1.     An estimated 1 billion people worldwide are vitamin D deficient (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4143492/).
 
2.     41.6% of adults in the US are vitamin D deficient (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21310306).
 
3.     Only 1 in 10 Americans – whether children or adults – are getting sufficient vitamin D.
 
4.     Vitamin D interacts with over 30 different tissues in the body and affects 1,000-3,000 of your 30,000 genes.
 
5.     When selecting your vitamin D supplement, choose the D3 form – it’s 87% more effective than the D2 version.
 
6.     Omega-3 deficiency causes up to 96,000 preventable U.S. deaths per year, making it the 6th leading cause of death according to Harvard researchers.
 
7.     The ideal ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 is 1:1, but unfortunately, omega-6 fats predominate the American diet by a 20:1 ratio.
 
8.     People who supplemented with the omega-3 supplements EPA and DHA daily for 3.5 years had a 25% lower risk of heart attack and a 45% lower risk of sudden death.
 
Did you know we can test our own omega-3 & Vit D levels from home? 
 
Order an omega-3 and vitamin D test kit at:
 
Karen Howard, executive director of Organic & Natural Health Association, says there are so many variables with clinical trials on nutrients that it’s important to do field studies to collect as much data as possible.  She says by measuring omega-3, DHA and EPA levels along with vitamin D serum levels, her national nonprofit organization, along with research partner GrassrootsHealth, will help to pinpoint exactly what’s working and what combinations of these nutrients are needed for improved outcomes for a variety of health conditions, which could shed more light on what levels of vitamins and supplements you actually need.  
 
Howard will tell your audience an easy way to test your omega-3 levels and vitamin D levels from home with a self-test kit, and how to participate in a nutrient study that already has 10,000 Americans signed up.  Howard can also discuss with your audience FDA regulation over vitamins and supplements; how they are regulated and what consumers should look for before making purchases.

In this episode, Dr Webster discusses the evidence  against sugar substitutes such as Splenda usage.

 
Using Splenda for 12-wk  has indicated many adverse effects

1. Reduced beneficial gut bacteria 
2. Increase fecal pH (High pH attracts disease)
3. Limit bioavailability of orally drugs. 
This means you won’t absorb your meds, in turn minimize their effectiveness and intended benefit. 

This often leads to taking high doses of meds leading to more health issues.
Preventing absorption also effects supplement use and lack of benefits.
 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/18800291/

From link above: Splenda kills good gut bacteria

A PubMed review of sucralose:

 
Although early studies asserted that sucralose passes through the GIT (gastrointestinal Tract unchanged, subsequent analysis suggested that some of the ingested sweetener is metabolized in the GIT. The identity and safety profile of these putative sucralose metabolites are not known at this time. 
 
Sucralose and one of its hydrolysis products were found to be mutagenic at elevated concentrations in several testing methods.
 
Cooking with sucralose at high temperatures was reported to generate chloropropanols, a potentially toxic class of compounds. – rat studies show kidney disease and lower spermicide count and sperm survival rate at doses often consumed and thought to be “safe” for humans.
 
Both human and rodent studies demonstrated that sucralose may alter glucose, insulin, and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) levels.

Dr. Tim Church has been a frequent guest on my show these past twenty years. He helps people understand the latest studies and suggests not making sudden changes to your life based on one study. 

Many scientists, PhD’s are paid or influenced to create an angle for attention. Yes this means even some of the most notable publications you read are filled with misinformation.

Dr Church’s credentials are sure to impress so I wanted to share them with you before sharing the topics of today’s show. 

Dr. Church has Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Masters of Public Health (M.P.H.) degrees from Tulane University.Tim Church, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D. – Medical Director

As a distinguished researcher and specialist in public health and general preventive medicine, Dr. Timothy Church ranks among the country’s most accomplished medical professionals, earning numerous distinctions as a physician, scientist, professor, patent holder, author and civil servant. His passion for helping people achieve better health has been the driving force behind his life’s work, which has included positions such as Vice President of Medical and Laboratory Research at Texas’ famed Cooper Institute and director of the Laboratory of Preventive Medicine at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center (part of the Louisiana State University system) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Dr. Church served as the Chairman of the Physical Activity Committee of the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism at the American Heart Association, was a consultant in the writing of the Federal Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Report 2008 and was invited to speak before the United States Congress’ Committee on Government Reform on the topic of diet, physical activity and dietary supplements. Dr. Church frequently contributes to the national news media as an expert on the subjects of exercise, weight and preventive medicine, and has been interviewed by CNN, NBC’s Today Show, Time Magazine, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and New York Times

Here are the topics we discuss on today’s show:

  1. Multi vitamins versus supplements. Some vitamins are a complete waste of money & potential health risk

Pay attention to the words we use. Vitamins are not all supplements. They are limited to a multi and others such as anti oxidants most believed were healthy for them to prevent risk of disease. Supplements such as B complex, magnesium, zinc and many more are vital to optimal health, especially when there is deficiency due to stress. Stress comes in the form  of mental concerns as well as poor lifestyle. This would

With the advent of the internet and continued mainstream media​ promoting wellness information, often incongruent with​ what practitioners with no agenda learn, is discouraging when it comes to identifying the truth of which food is healthy and which exercise and supplements are most beneficial.

​My guest, ​D​r. Tim Church is an (M.D.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Masters of Public Health (M.P.H.) He was the Vice President of Medical and Laboratory Research at Texas’ famed Cooper Institute and director of the Laboratory of Preventive Medicine at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center (part of the Louisiana State University system).

It's ​March and most people who adopted a new year resolution are beginning to ​fall off the wagon due to lack of results, the speed at which the results came and a mammalian brain that's ​constantly on the lookout for danger, ​drama, ​failure, and challenges.

​If you choose to disregard this show, then you're either wealthy, in perfect health and or have the perfect marriage, or you have embraced being Uncomfortably Comfortable ​

I will share 6 reasons why our brain is constantly looking for failure and danger, then give tangible ideas to begin implementing to change the way your brain thinks to minimized being faced with a challenge in which you may have drawn toward you with a negative mindset.

Visit www.potentiallyYou.net  begin with buying my book Potentially You. 

Toward the end of the book, I mention a tool I have that only a few people in America have that will completely neutralize the emotions keeping you from being the parent, spouse, successful business person​ and the healthy ​person you wish to be and​ ​enjoy the emotional stability and success you deserve.

A high-carb diet and high blood sugar are associated with cognitive decline.
 
What are ketones?
 
What is ketosis and is it dangerous? (Compare to keto-acidosis)
Can all cells, tissues, and organs in the body potentially use ketones and which benefit the most from ketones.
 
Dr. Satchin Panda microbiologist studies the circadian rhythms​ of the body. Every cell in the body follows this Circadian Rhythm which governs when a cell is most metabolically active, when hormones are produced and when repairs and processes are active.​​​ Our internal clock tells us when it’s time to wake, when to rest and when to begin eating​ and when to wind down. 
 
To learn more about Dr. Panda’s studies:
 
 

A few years ago Dr. Panda​ began looking at how food affects our clocks in each organ. In our liver, there are 3000-5000 genes that turn on or off at different parts of the day. 

​One experiment his team gave food to mice during the day, (mice eat at night) to see if it would affect gene expression.
 
The first exposure to light and bite of food determines how our body clock works.
 
Dr. Panda coined the phrase TRF Time-Restricted Feeding which he defines as eating during an 8-12 hr period during light exposure only. 
This produced fat loss, increased lean muscle mass, decreased inflammation, improved heart function, ketone production and aerobic endurance.
 
Every organ in our body has an internal clock and it tells each organ when to be at peak performance and when to rest. 
 
W​hat many people may not know is that 10-15% of our genome is tied to our circadian rhythm and 40-50% of those genes are tied to metabolism.​
 
Dr. Panda went on to give an example of how street lights have to be timed just right to prevent traffic accidents. Not unlike the clock in our liver and how it distributes food and the process, it goes through. Not everything happens at once such as breaking down protein, making glucose etc. 
 
Artificial sweeteners, sugar and other things that cause a disruption in this process lead to metabolic issues attracting disease. Diabetes, heart disease cancer etc. 
 
We’re forcing our organs to work at times they are winding down, in turn, trying to force them to work at their optimal levels which cause traffic jams, and accidents using his traffic light metaphor about attracting disease.
 
They also found, and cannot explain people will gain muscle mass just by using this TRF. Which completely negates the thought of having to eat every 2-3 hrs. 
 
He did say the quality of calories does matter but if someone had to choose one first to then incorporate the other, TRF during 8-12 hours daylight would be that choice. 
 
Their findings show most people eat over a 15 hour period

In the beginning of 2018 I had an idea for a show to discuss the importance of adding or removing certain supplements due to the demands, change of each season and desires we have within those seasons that focus on our health goals and concerns.
 
People who supplement, do so with the same routine day in & day out without regard to the effect each season has on our health. 
Demands on our health change as seasons change.
 
Which sups do you need more or less of in each season? 
 
 
Winter concerns and interests: Sugar cravings, Fat loss, Stress, fFu, Snergy, Painful Joints, 

Asthma, Contracting a cold, Dry air asthma attacks, Heart Attacks

Spring concerns and interests: Allergies- yard work, bicycle riding and all outdoor activity. Toxicity from winter food and in home chemicals not being released due to lack of open windows/freshair

 
Summer concerns and interests: Sunburn, Women yeast infections, Athletes foot, Acne, Food poison, Dehydration 
 
Autumn concerns and interests:  Energy- hypersomnia, SAD (seasonal affective disorder)

STRESS HORMONES

AND THEIR EFFECT ON YOUR HEALTH AND PEAK PERFORMANCE

What you need to know about cortisol and your health.

Cortisol is a hormone released during stress. It is involved with many body functions such as controlling blood sugar levels, blood pressure, regulating metabolism and regulating energy by selecting the right amount of nutrients for our body. When it’s released it increases heart rate, blood pressure, blood glucose, respiration and muscle tension. It’s also the hormone responsible for the “fight-or-flight” response to stress.

Too much or too little cortisol caused by excess stress can lead to several health issues.

Research shows 90 percent of doctors visits are related to stress.

While this hormone  gets negative attention, we discuss the role and benefits of cortisol in addition to chronic release of high cortisol on health and peak performance.

A food once touted dangerous by MDs, always loved by nutritionists &-bodybuilders directly affects brain health

What is the one well-balanced, protein absorbed faster & more efficiently than other protein? 

Dr. Tia Rains is the Executive Director at the Egg Nutrition Center. 

www.eggnutritioncenter.org  

In this episode Dr Rains discussed the new research and importance of consuming eggs for babies and adults alike. 

First we discuss the latest research on babies and brain health, then dismiss the negative news about cholesterol and eggs once thought to harm people with high cholesterol.

January 2018 Dr. Marie Caudill and colleagues at Cornell University published yet more evidence that infants exposed to higher levels of maternal choline (930 mg/day) during the third trimester have improved information processing speed during the first year of life, an indicator of cognition and intelligence.

The choline content, in particular, is proving to be much more important for brain function than once thought. 

Eggs are the richest source of choline except for beef liver (which isn’t exactly as suitable for babies and toddlers…)

Eggs are also the most bioavailable source of protein on the planet (ie. More protein per bite, less filler)

Eggs are also dense in iodine and zinc

Eggs include other important brain nutrients like polyunsaturated fatty acids, folic acid, and are one of the most bioavailable source of protein on the planet. That means that growing bodies digest and absorb the protein from eggs faster and more efficiently than other protein sources.

In this episode I will share the importance of certain exercises to incorporate and others to avoid due to loss of range of motion, pain, and loss of cartilage in our joints.

I will share six daily exercises men and women over 40 must do & seven you must avoid.

T​he exercises are intended to show the importance of certain safe bio mechanical movements, not a routine with any particular purpose.

Dr. Webster will comment on the link between sugar and Alzheimer’s and how ketones play a positive role.

Below is a look at some of the daily exercise must do's.
For the explanation and my suggested exercises to avoid, listen to the podcast.

Use Y​outube for proper instruction of these exercises:

1. Planks-
2. Body squat​-

In this episode we talk about:

Purdue Pharma pled guilty to criminal consumer fraud in 2007 for lying about the addiction risk of their opioid medications and paid a fine of over $600 million but no one went to jail.

  • Doctors receive, on average, less than two hours of education on pain in medical school
  • 40% of visits to primary care physicians are for pain
  • Americans spend over $34 billion annually out of pocket for alternative medicine because they want safe, effective care and health insurers rarely pay

Doctors, fearful of prosecution for over prescribing are not prescribing pain meds anymore. Millions of people are addicted to opioids, hundreds of thousands dead.  Now they're being abruptly cut off and offered nothing to replace it.

Have you heard of Resistant Starch

Most starches are broken down into sugar, however, Resistant Starch resists digestion and increases the amount of fat we use for energy, better insulin sensitivity, improves digestion and strengthens immunity. However, does this fly into the face of science of info we are suppose to follow to lose fat? 

We'll discuss more about that point later in the show.

  • What is starch?
  • What foods contain starch?
  • When we see "carbs" listed on a food label is starch a part of (or all of) that?
  • Why might starch be a problem for weight loss?
  • What happens when we fry starch (fries)?
  • What is Resistant Starch?
  • Which foods contain it?
  • What does Resistant Starch do for digestion and what are the other health benefits?
 
Third segment: Resistant Starch (RS) and weight loss
  • Hot vs cold starch- how does this effect resistant starch? If we let machines and ovens do the digestion for us, we are left with highly digestible starches. Not good for glucose control, staying lean, or intestinal health.
  • What foods high in RS might be helpful for weight loss?
  • Why does RS help weight loss?
  • For those in extreme need for weight loss, what is an extreme diet high in RS that could be helpful

Vitamin B6 and B12 Supplements Appear to Cause Cancer in Men the National Institutes of Health notes, “Vitamin B12 supplementation appears to have no beneficial effect on performance in the absence of a nutritional deficit.” 

​In this episode we discuss the importance o how to look at a study and what makes it credible.

These publications ​are misguiding people as usual.

W​hat's missing from this study? 

Should we put all focus on every study published?

Have you ever wondered why a product or protocol is touted as good for us one year, and the next it's the worst thing imaginable?
 
Let's become advocates for our own health and bring what we researched to specialists for their input.

Journal of Clinical Oncology, researchers reported that taking vitamin B6 and B12 supplements in high doses (like those sold in many stores) appears to triple or almost quadruple some people’s risk of lung cancer. Key words here, (like those sold in many stores)

In 2009, the researchers reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association that taking high doses of vitamin B12 along with folic acid (technically vitamin B9) was associated with greater risk of cancer and all-cause mortality. 

​Folic acid is not made in nature. Folate is. ​
 

B vitamins contribute enzymes and coenzymes to a metabolic pathway that breaks down folate in order to make the bases that comprise DNA. The pathway also regulates the expression of genes (by creating methyl groups that can essentially turn genes on and off). When we have too little of these B vitamins, this pathway can go wrong, leading to problems like incorporation of the wrong types of bases into DNA, which can cause breaks in the strands, and, in theory, lead to cancer.

Science showing being over fat may not be your fault minus poor choices. 

 
Dr Tim Church Said, "your body has more microbes than human cells."

The human body is teeming with microbes. A number that gets bandied about is that there are 10 times as many bacterial cells as human cells inside you. 

You are born bacteria-free

People are born without bacteria, and acquire them in the first few years of life. Babies get their first dose of microbes as they're passing through their mother's birth canal.

Bacteria can be good and bad for you

You're probably aware that while some germs can make you sick, others are important for keeping you healthy and fending off infections. Sometimes, the same bacteria can do both.

 

PROBIOTICS

The recognition that bacteria can be good for you has spawned something of a craze in probiotic supplements, consisting of live microbes purported to bestow health benefits. Many people take them after a course of antibiotics. But do they actually work?
