Rank #3: Adrenal Fatigue and the 7 Pillars of Vibrant Health - FAM #46

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome!  My guest today is Dr. Ritamarie, who is a specialist in endocrine imbalances.  She focuses on thyroid, adrenal, and insulin issues, and is here to discuss adrenal fatigue.  She has a long and rich history of working with patients in the area of nutritional endocrinology.

As a young person, Dr. Ritamarie suffered from adrenal fatigue and leaky gut issues but she never connected the symptoms with her unhealthy lifestyle.  She suspected the connection and did research on her own, then started cleansing and rebuilding her system on her own.  She has had NO sugar or caffeine for 30 years!  Her passion became teaching others what she had learned about health and nutrition.

Dr. Ritamarie discusses the following topics:

  • There is a connection to adrenal imbalance, thyroid issues, blood sugar imbalance, and digestion.
  • She founded the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology to train health practitioners.
  • There are some common patterns, but also some unique differences in the symptoms of adrenal imbalance.  She shares six specific symptoms that you may be experiencing!
  • Dr. Ritamarie shares the Seven Pillars of Vibrant Health that must be in balance.  It’s NOT ONLY nutrition that matters!
  • Stress, sleep, and mindset are probably the main areas in which most people need to change habits for positive health.
  • There are Three Pillars of Care for Successful Practitioners.  You have to be a good example to help others change for the better!
  • There is a correlation between sleep deprivation and insulin resistance.  Most people need 7-9 hours nightly for optimum overall health.
  • Dr. Ritamarie has some specific Do’s and Don’t’s regarding nutritional changes to heal adrenal function.  Listen and learn!
  • She has some exercises to help people learn to let go of limiting beliefs.  What is it that is holding you back?
  • She briefly describes “transforming stress,” which takes negative stressors and reframes them in a positive way.
  • To begin to change, focus on breathing, appreciation, and eating REAL food!
  • If you’re suffering from adrenal imbalance, you can expect a profound change in 3-6 months of commitment to her program.

Dr. Ritamarie has many years’ experience in functional medicine with an emphasis on adrenal imbalance.  Her tips can help anyone who suffers from the common symptoms.  Join me to learn more, and check out the resources below!

Rank #4: Hormones and Gut Health with Bridgit Danner

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome! Today’s guest is Bridgit Danner, a fellow podcaster who is passionate about women’s health. I met Bridgit at a conference in CA, and we connected immediately. Bridgit specializes in hormones and gut health, so those are our topics today. Join us!

Bridgit shares the following:

  • The Hormone Summit is Bridgit’s latest project. The summit includes 35 interviews around themes of hormone issues, PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, thyroid disorders, skin problems, sex drive, life stages, fertility, per-menopause, food, lifestyle, and supportive modalities. The dates are April 11-18; see Resources below for details!
  • What we eat dramatically impacts our hormones! Pesticides and hormones in our food overload our bodies with toxins.
  • We need good fats, leafy greens, and fermented foods.
  • Signs of an unhappy gut include bloating, irregular bowel, food coma, heartburn, gas, migraines, and skin disorders.
  • There are common trigger foods for migraines, general inflammation, and even Candida issues.
  • “Very few people have a great diet and great digestion.”
  • An unhappy gut is a huge stress on the body, producing less sex hormones, less nutrients, and insufficient neurotransmitters.
  • There are four tests that can be used to check for gut health:
    • Urine test for intestinal permeability
    • LEAP food sensitivity test
    • Stool test
    • Genetic test for mutations contributing to IBS
  • Bridgit explains her best steps to start healing your gut:
    • Eat well, slowly, and mindfully.
    • Don’t rush while eating and don’t overeat.
    • An elimination diet may be the answer for you.
    • Eat fermented foods.
    • Take a probiotic.
    • Do what you can to lower your stress.
    • Avoid allergens like corn, soy, dairy, wheat, sugar. 
    • Avoid coffee and tea.
    • Adopt soothing practices for your gut’s mucous lining: use bone broth, collagen powder, L-glutamine, and aloe.
    • Add lots of fiber; eat salad every day, and try to eat 20 different kinds of veggies each week!
  • How much fiber is ideal? Bridgit recommends 30 grams/day.
  • Bridgit shares ways to stimulate the “heat” of digestion to help break down foods.
  • Contrary to the normal American way of eating and drinking, you should NOT drink icy beverages with meals!

Rank #6: Anxiety Disorders, Digestive Issues and Vitamin K, with Beverly Meyer - #033

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome!  My guest today is Beverly Meyer, who has been an alternative health patient since the 1970’s.  She has tried many different modalities to treat anxiety, adrenal disorders, digestive issues, and numerous autoimmune disorders.  Beverly has dedicated her life to studying and finding answers and now helps many clients find their way to a better diet and better health.  She has fascinating information to share!

Much of what Beverly teaches her clients stems from the research and findings of Dr. Weston Price, a dentist who practiced in the early 20th century.  He made predictions about how food trends would affect future generations, even down to bone structure!  Beverly discusses the following:

  • All over the world, when people resorted to eating foods that weren’t native and natural, it has resulted in profound changes.  
  • Humans weren’t meant to eat grains, which are the seeds of grasses meant for grazing animals.
  • From her experience, EVERYONE has some sort of gluten allergy, but some are much more severe than others.
  • Many bone structure changes over generations can be attributed to diets lacking in vitamins, especially vitamin D and K.
  • The link between vitamins D and K and calcium absorption can be clearly seen in human facial bone structure!
  • There are ways to ensure proper amounts of necessary vitamins and minerals.  Listen to Beverly’s tips for further information!
  • It’s important to GET the proper nutrients, but also to live a lifestyle that utilizes them for maximum absorption.
  • Vegetables should be steamed/cooked for maximum nutrition, as opposed to eating them mainly raw.
  • Chronic illnesses disappear when drastic diet changes take place.

Don’t miss what Beverly teaches about the connection between vitamin K, TMJ, and brain stem issues!  She also shares her TOP TIPS about how to change your diet for optimum health!  Listen to our conversation to learn more!

Rank #7: Eat Yourself Skinny with Dietitian Cassie

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome! My guest today is a dietician whom I met at a conference last August. I’ve become a fan of Cassie Bjork and her “Eating to be Skinny” approach to health and nutrition. I’m excited to have her on the show today!

Cassie describes her work as being a “dietician detective” in which she looks for evidence and symptoms in her clients, and then puts the puzzle pieces together. “We help you narrow down the suspects included in your personal crime scene that keep you from being skinny and living a healthy life.”

Cassie shares the following about her life, her work, and her nutritional recommendations:

  • Her own sugar addiction brought her to the lowest and unhealthiest point in her life, so she got off the blood sugar roller coaster and made some changes.
  • America’s biggest nutritional problem is SUGAR ADDICTION! Forget the low-fat, low-calorie approach to trying to lose weight!
  • Cassie identifies some key areas that are usually the missing puzzle pieces in nutrition: keeping inflammation down, managing stress, supporting thyroid function, gut health, hormonal balance, proper sleep, avoiding artificial sweeteners and processed foods, and being careful with alcohol consumption.
  • In making nutrition changes, gut health is the top priority! Cassie shares her “three-prong approach” about what we SHOULD be doing, including the supplements we should all take every day.
  • Cassie’s formula for nutrition is “PFC Balance.” Her template can be customized for anyone, but use protein, fat, and carbs in balance with eating every 3 hours to “stay ahead of the hunger.” She also shares sample meal plans that she uses every day!
  • Hormone balance is crucial! Cassie explains the relationship between insulin and glucagon in the body’s fat burning/fat storing processes.
  • Fad diets are not usually the answer! Many women try intermittent fasting and ketogenic diets and then come to Cassie for help.

“When we deprive our bodies of food, nutrients, and healthy fats, then our metabolism slows down to conserve energy. That’s why low-fat and low-calorie DOES NOT WORK! Nutrition is not about low-fat and low-calorie, but about refueling with whole foods that the body needs and is designed to run on.”

  • What foods/supplements he recommends for his heart disease patients
  • How Dr. Kahn stays on track with his personal health, even with a CRAZY schedule

Podcast cover

http://www.DrAnh.com/survey

My guest today is Dr. Lori Arnold, who is an integrative pharmacist and health coach.  Lori is fellowship trained, and board certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.  She is also a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine.  For the last five years, she has made it her mission to educate practitioners, patients, and families about nutrition, wellness, and longevity.  Lori believes in the power of the body in healing itself and is the author of the book, Heal Yourself Beautiful, which comes out later this summer.

This toxic black mold (Stachybotrys) is common in desert areas (Lori lived in Palm Springs, CA), and sometimes starts to grow where leaks or floods have occurred.  Lori discovered the mold growth where an A/C unit had leaked into the walls and ceilings.

So, what do you do about toxic black mold?  Lori TOOK CONTROL AND TOOK ACTION!  She recounts the following steps in her SUCCESSFUL detoxification process:

  • Immediate evacuation!
  • Professional air quality tests
  • Candida diet
  • Colon hydrotherapy
  • Infrared sauna treatments
  • Alkaline water
  • Vegan diet
  • High doses of supplements
  • High doses of fish oils
  • High doses of melatonin
  • Mindset adjustment
  • B-complex vitamin injections

Our conversation also covers ways to minimize detox reactions, the importance of healthy eating and quality supplements, and MUCH, MUCH MORE!  Even if toxic mold isn’t making you sick, Lori’s advice and insight can help anyone learn to remove toxins and live a healthier lifestyle.  Join us to learn more!

Rank #10: Ketogenic Diets, Low Carbs Diets and Gluten with Danny Lennon - #016

Podcast cover
Read more

http://www.DrAnh.com/survey

If you don’t already know, you’ll soon find out that Danny is British and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Biology and Physics in 2011.  He has a passion for nutrition, human health, and athletic performance and after working for a year teaching biology, physics and math he decided to leave teaching and pursue his REAL passion of teaching people about real nutrition and is also pursuing his Master’s degree in Nutritional Science. Danny is the CEO of Sigma Nutrition.  

In today's interview, I discuss the following topics with Danny:

#1 Potential for ketogenic diets

#2 Why should and who shouldn't be low-carb

#3 How important is it to be gluten free?

Science has changed over the years and there is still much misinformation about nutrition circulating.  Now, studies show it is better to have fewer carbs and higher fat content that had previously been thought.  

Gone are the days of shaming people for eating fat.  New research suggests that healthy fats and low carbs form the foundation for a great diet for so many people.  The typical diet that is ketogenic contains between 60-85% fat.  

Most people can benefit from a low carb diet.  The amount of carbs depends on the person, but this is something that has to be tinkered with for each person.  

Constant tinkering with the amount of fats, proteins and carbs is something that Danny embraces as he helps his clients get healthy.

Rank #11: Gut Health, Antibiotics and Swimming with Dr. Grace Liu

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome! Today’s guest is Dr. Grace Liu, who is a pharmacist and functional medicine practitioner. She is the “Gut Goddess.” Her expertise is in pharmacy nutrition and optimal health, and her training includes plant biology, food science, nutritional science, pharmacy, and Crossfit Nutrition. She and I met at the PaleoFX 2015 conference in Austin, TX, and I’ve been excited to have her on the show. Join us!

Grace obtained a nutritional science degree, then took some time off before going to pharmacy school. She worked in traditional medicine for 13 years. She became really sick and then discovered Paleo and CrossFit. It was when she lived in China in 2008 that she began focusing on gut health, and this focus is what led her to specialize her practice in all aspects of gut health.

Grace shares the following about gut health:

  • Gut health is important for many reasons, but one reason is that 80% of the immune system is in the gut. Operating without proper gut health is like operating with only half of your brain!
  • Grace uses a “tree” picture to illustrate each person’s microbiome, showing the branches of the different bacteria found in the gut.
  • Many problems and health disorders are caused when the needed varieties of bacteria aren’t present. One problem is the presence of too many antibiotics in our society!
  • If you aren’t feeling well, you probably need to replenish the needed bacteria. Grace discusses the inexpensive tests that can be done to assess the composition of the gut.
  • Dysbiosis or SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) is common in the upper gut; sometimes a low carb diet can help.
  • Grace explains the process of “weeding” as it applies to monitoring your gut flora.
  • Grace shares her 7 Steps to Heal your Gut:
    • Hormones in Digestion
    • Bionic Fiber
    • Probiotics
    • Diet
    • Exercise
    • Weeding
    • Fermented Foods
  • Grace shares her favorite ways to heal the adrenals because of the gut connection: go to bed early, assess heart rate variability, and try hydrotherapy. Swimming seems to be a secret to health!
  • The take-home action steps are: gut health is likened to what keeps our cars in good running order. “Good bacteria are the guardians of good health! Invite them in through probiotics and good nutrition.”

You’ve learned the basics of gut health from Dr. Grace! Everyone can benefit from all that she has shared with us. Thanks for listening!

Rank #14: Managing Auto-Immune Disorders through Neuro-Metabolic Integration - FAM #061

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome! My guest today is Dr. Peter Kan, an experienced physician specializing in thyroid issues. He is a board-certified chiropractic neurologist who is certified in functional medicine. He has extensive training in the management of autoimmune disorders and has formulated a unique approach called “neuro-metabolic integration.” Dr. Kan was born in Taiwan and came to the US at the age of 13. He appreciates both Eastern and Western medicine and believes in the body’s God-given ability to heal and regulate itself. People come from all across the country to visit his practice in Gilbert, Arizona. 

My conversation with Dr. Kan covers the following:

  • He learned about the body’s holistic ability to heal itself when helping his father treat liver cancer with dietary changes and supplements.
  • His practice is 90% complex Hashimoto’s cases and other thyroid symptoms of brain fog, depression, memory loss, and balance issues. “This is not my work; I am chosen to do this.”
  • Dr. Kan explains “brain fog” as the feeling of having a cloud over you and not being able to focus on and complete tasks.
  • Brain fog is essentially the inability of the brain to utilize energy and activate brain cells.
  • The brain cells require fuel and activation for proper function.
  • The brain needs oxygen and glucose for fuel. Dr. Kan explains how to assess and improve your circulation, gut issues, and blood sugar!
  • Glucose and brain function are so closely tied together that Alzheimer’s and dementia are now referred to as Type 3 diabetes!
  • You can assess your symptoms to find out if you are hypoglycemic or insulin-resistant. Dr. Kan explains.
  • Activation of the brain cells has to do with each lobe (region) of the brain and its specific function. Dr. Kan’s brain-based therapy is designed to treat the specific brain area.
  • “Healthy thyroid function requires healthy brain function.” Brain function can be the missing piece of a patient’s thyroid issue care.
  • Dr. Kan discusses ketogenic diets, which use fats as the main source of fuel for the brain. He concludes that they are not right for everyone but require individual assessment.
  • Dr. Kan gives the benefits of HIT (high intensity training), which is not about building muscle, but about the cascade of hormones that occurs.
  • Dr. Kan explains the relationship between gut health, thyroid function, and balance issues.
  • Dr. Kan’s neuro-metabolic integration incorporates all aspects in his treatment approach.
  • Dr. Kan explains some of the various tests he performs on clients to diagnose their problems. “You can’t focus on one issue at the exclusion of the other body systems, but find the issue that’s the most important, basic, and obvious.”
  • Toxicity is another variable in health and wellness that cannot be ignored. The brain, nutrition, and toxicity are all related!

Rank #15: ADHD, Gluten and Alternative Treatments - FAM #042

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome!  Our episode today comes from our recent live webinar with Dr. Chantell Reagan, a wife and mom who has been a pharmacist for over 20 years.  Her career includes working in managed care and consulting, and now is focused on functional medicine and nutraceuticals.  Join us!

Chantell began the journey to functional medicine as a result of her oldest son’s diagnosis of ADHD in preschool.  He was prescribed meds to manage behavior, anger, and hyperactivity. He also tried behavioral therapy, which had some success, but didn’t address the root cause. Chantell researched the link between ADHD and gluten and found surprising results.  When the family went on a GF diet, she noticed significant improvements in his attitude and behavior.  To change the family to GF, she started with easy swaps, then progressed to eliminating red dye, processed foods, dairy, and common allergens.

Chantell shares the following about ADHD and alternative treatments:

  • There are shocking statistics about the increase in ADHD diagnoses in American children.  
  • Even more shocking are the statistics about the number of children currently on prescription medications for ADHD.
  • The Gut-Brain Connection is vital for understanding ADHD.  Chantell explains the connection and the importance of probiotics.
  • Another key component in ADHD is mineral and vitamin deficiencies.  “Simple mineral deficiencies can manifest themselves as ADHD, so supplements can work as well as prescription medications.”
  • Chantell shares her “4 S’s” Protocol for treating ADHD symptoms:  sugar, sleep, stress, and smart supplementation.  Join us for the details!
  • Choose supplements carefully to insure quality.  Chantell recommends the top 6 supplements to use in treating ADHD symptoms.
  • Essential oils can be very effective in treating ADHD symptoms, especially vetiver, cedarwood, and lavender.  Listen in for more details!

Chantell shares that her sons are currently on NO MEDICATIONS.  She uses essential oils, supplements, and probiotics.  They get sufficient exercise, sleep, and limited screen time.  Listen to Chantell to find out how to implement these changes in your family and check out the resources available.

Welcome! My guest today is Fran Sussman, a holistic practitioner
since 1993 who has helped thousands of clients reclaim their health
and vitality. She teaches people to heal their gut, balance
hormones, reduce inflammation, heal their brains, combat Lyme
disease, and much more. Her personal journey includes a full
recovery from breast cancer and Lyme disease. Now, at age 62, Fran

practices with huge payoffs for mind, body, and spirit. Join

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • How Fran’s early interest in nutrition and the health problems
    of her two children prompted her journey as a holistic
    practitioner
  • When traditional medicine didn’t have answers for her children,
    Fran did her own research and found natural solutions.
  • It wasn’t long before others started asking for her help in
    treating their own, and their children’s, health issues.
  • Fran soon became ill, anxious, depressed, and unhappy as she
    faced her failed marriage and Lyme disease.
  • “What things help people change at deeper levels?”
  • The biggest change for Fran occurred as a result of her work
    with the renowned endocrinologist Diana Schwarzbein.
  • How Fran’s son’s extreme eczema led her to homeopathic
    treatments and the discovery of the benefits of a gluten-free
    diet
  • How Fran experimented with going GF, saw a huge difference, and
    felt that a “veil was lifted.”
  • She now uses muscle testing with clients to test for gluten
    sensitivity.
  • “Nobody should be eating gluten.”
  • How Fran also has her clients remove soy and peanuts from their
    diets, and why
  • Why there is such an increase in toxins in today’s
    nutrition
  • How Fran uses information from basic lab tests and muscle tests
    to help her clients
  • Fran explains the science of what gluten does to gut health,
    including leaky gut, hyperactive immunity, and overreacting
    inflammation.
  • The good news is that the gut damage CAN be repaired and some
    foods can be added back in after 3 months to 2 years.
  • Fran explains her “passion topics” of mechanistic vs. dynamic
    views of the body and health.
  • Fran explains why women past childbearing age should NOT do
    cardio, but should focus on high-intensity interval training (HIT)
    instead.
  • How interval training can make a huge difference for women
  • Why Fran now uses strength training, intermittent fasting,
    ketosis, and yoga to maintain optimal health
  • Rebuilding bones CAN happen, even after menopause!
  • Vitamin K therapy—See how Fran makes it work!

Abel James was raised by a natural health practitioner mother, who taught him the connection between real food and his body.  As Abel grew up and went out into the real world, he had the same issues everyone else had.  He worked a stressful job and didn’t have time to focus on his diet or exercise.  He began to have problems with his blood pressure and he felt terrible.

In his early 20’s, he went through the terrible experience of having his apartment destroyed by fire.  He lost everything he had, but he gained valuable perspective.  He realized that he could control very little of the circumstances in his life.  This made him realize the one thing he can control is his diet, which can have a positive impact on his health.  So, he dove into health head first and got serious about his nutrition and exercise.
