    E35: All You Need to Know About Hormones with Dr. Anna Cabeca

    38:56

    Dr. Anna Cabeca is committed to supporting women to thrive physically, emotionally, sexually, and even spiritually as they go through the natural and inevitable life shift of menopause. Dr. Anna Cabeca has spent years developing and perfecting a complete suite of life-changing products and programs. Everything Dr. Anna creates is part of her daily routine and is based on exhaustive research and the never-ending quest to find solutions that help women reclaim their vibrancy, sexuality, health, and happiness. In this episode, Dr. Anna explains what happens to women after forty when they have insulin resistance. Insulin, cortisol, estrogen, and progesterone influence each other like a spider web. In our mid-thirties, progesterone levels start to decline. Insulin and cortisol will also play a role in this decline. Progesterone is our calming hormone; it is predominant in the second half of our menstrual cycle. It is also the primary hormone in pregnancy - protecting our brains, bones, and breasts. Estrogen is also an essential hormone. It’s vital for our eyes, bones, and glucose uptake in the brain. In menopause, women get brain fog. If we aren’t able to utilize glucose because of depleting estrogen, that explains the brain fog. To fix this, women should start using ketones for fuel. That way, they are not as dependent on the estrogen circulating in the body. After menopause, many women start to gain weight. As our metabolism shifts, it creates a weight gain. For women, it becomes crucial to get ahold of your hormone levels to nip weight gain in the bud. Because we are living in artificial environments, we need to arm ourselves with detoxification. Detoxing will help our bodies get improved sleep, relax, and generally make us feel good. Then, Dr. Anna discusses the hormones behind women’s sex drives. We commonly think of estrogen as the female hormone. However, testosterone is also essential for women’s sex drives. Furthermore, DHEA will assist with improving sex life by enhancing orgasms, desire, and libido. Also, optimum levels of DHEA are associated with low levels of cancer. However, women struggle with DHEA because it starts to decline in their twenties – plus, DHEA is depleted during stressful times. Stay tuned as Dr. Anna reveals the inspiration behind some of her products like Keto-Green and Mighty Maca. Plus, she explains the importance of care in the healing process.

    E34: The Link Between Autoimmunity and Type 2 Diabetes with Dr. Brad Gorski

    40:49

    Dr. Brad Gorski has a passion for helping others eliminate autoimmunity. People with autoimmune disease suffer from symptoms for years before they get answers. Eliminating his own autoimmune disease led him to a system of customized health coaching that is impacting those with autoimmune problems. We are in the infancy of understanding autoimmunity. As far as the ties between autoimmunity and diabetes, Dr. Brad says that once you develop type 2 diabetes, you have a high chance of developing a thyroid issue. Our nutrition is terrible, and it’s damaging our gut. In order to get well, we need to have our nutrition in place. To help decipher your inflammation, look at your blood test and check your C-Reactive Protein (CRP) numbers. These protein levels should be under one, according to Dr. Brad. If you have high levels of CRP, that means there are toxin issues. Also, understand your omega-6 and omega-3 ratio – it should be about 4:1 depending on your risk factors. Fat is necessary to buffer inflammation. Food is not always the best medicine. We all do not need the same nutrition plan. Our immunity is based on our gut bacteria, and all of our gut bacteria is unique. So, it doesn’t make sense that one nutrition plan would work for everyone equally. You can be eating foods that are “good,” yet they are making you sick. To heal his body, Dr. Brad used fasting. To help heal the gut, you can start with little types of fasting. Within four days of fasting, you can regenerate your entire immune system. Fasting will change gut bacteria and immunity. Plus, our body needs that energy to heal. Dr. Brad uses fasting with almost all of his patients. When you’re autoimmune, you want to rule out toxins first. For Dr. Brad, mold pushed him over the edge. Heavy metals are another thing that your body can be sensitive to; they will continuously stress the system and build up over time. Toxins will bioaccumulate and eventually wreak havoc on the body. Stay tuned as Dr. Brad gives his advice for someone with type 2 diabetes. Key Takeaways: [ 0:40 ] About Dr. Brad Gorski [ 7:50 ] Autoimmune components of diabetes   [ 11:00 ] How to decrease inflammation   [ 15:40 ] Testing omega levels [ 18:00 ] Food is not always the best medicine [ 19:50 ] How to heal the gut [ 23:20 ] Healing autoimmune conditions   [ 31:30 ] Advice for someone with type 2 diabetes Mentioned in this Episode: Elite Family Chiropractic: https://www.elitefamilycharleston.com/ SpectraCell: https://www.spectracell.com Dr. Brad’s Website: https://drbradgorski.com Find Dr. Brad Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrBradGorski Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drbradgorski/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drbradgorski/ Email: info@drbradgorski.com Enjoyed the Podcast?

    E33: Balance Your Hormones For Metabolic Health with Dr. Mariza Snyder

    36:32

    Dr. Mariza Snyder is a functional practitioner, women's health expert and the author of seven books: The #1 National Bestselling book, The Essential Oils Hormone Solution, focuses on balancing hormones with the power of essential oils. Other bestselling books are: The Smart Mom's Guide to Essential Oils and The DASH Diet Cookbook. When looking for tools to reduce stress levels and deal with mood swings, Dr. Mariza found something to help on her journey. That's when she found out about the benefit of essential oils. You can use oils for sleep, energy, and to curb cravings. The oils helped fuel the habits that Dr. Mariza created. Essential oils have powerful therapeutic properties. For instance, peppermint oil can significantly decrease any sort of craving. If you can curb the craving by breathing in a scent, you will have a successful tool on your hands to help support your goals. Another powerful oil is lavender. Lavender will lower cortisol levels and mediate our stress response. Sugar is a big deal in our culture. From a young age, we get rewarded with sugar. However, we know that sugar is addictive. It acts very similar to cocaine. Plus, sugar is damaging to our bodies. Addiction is anything that you leverage in a way to self-soothe. That's why we see social media and shopping addictions. We use sugar to block or suppress our primary feelings of stress. We need to be mindful and understand our addictions. If we are self-soothing with caffeine and sugar, think about why. Be aware of your habits - are you happy with your habits? At some point during the day, are you thinking about self-soothing? We shouldn't have little "prizes" throughout the day. For instance, Dr. Mariza used to drink a diet coke every single day. Ask yourself, "why?" It's crucial to look at cortisol. Our brains are hard-wired to be in fight or flight mode. When our minds become hyper regulated, our body shuts down and goes into survival mode. Today, this can happen all of the time - we are firing off these hormones constantly. When cortisol shoots up, it suppresses our willpower.  Key Takeaways: [ 0:55 ] Why Dr. Mariza uses essential oils     [ 6:40 ] Why sugar is such a big deal [ 18:45 ] The importance of mindfulness   [ 21:10 ] The hormones to look out for [ 30:00 ] Advice for people with diabetes and obesity   Mentioned in this Episode: Dr. Mariza’s Website: https://www.drmariza.com Dr. Mariza’s Books: https://www.drmariza.com/books/ Dr. Mariza’s Podcast: https://www.drmariza.com/podcast/ Get Your Free Guide: https://join.drmariza.com/hormone-supplements-guide/ Follow Dr. Mariza Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drmariza/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drmarizasnyder YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/drmarizasnyder Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/drmariza/ Enjoyed the Podcast?

    E32: How To Create A Healthy Metabolism? with Dr. Elena Zinkov

    54:19

    Dr. Elena Zinkov has a background as a competitive athlete – that introduced her to the world of sports medicine and how nutrition impacts performance. From there Dr. Elena grew passionate about finding the most innovative and evidence-based techniques for pain management. Now, she is best known for helping busy men and women regain their vibrant lifestyle after years of doctor’s appointments and testing with no results. Through her signature program, Dr. Elena helps her clients reach their full potential through optimal health. In this episode, Dr. Elena explains how she looks at type 2 diabetes from a naturopathic perspective. First, she looks at the cardiovascular system and the hosts of issues contributing to blood sugar regulation. Next, a naturopath looks at lifestyle, stress levels, and dietary habits. It's essential to look at the whole person, including their family, work, and living environment. When someone does have type 2 diabetes, it's time to figure out how to intervene. Some of the ways you can intervene are through diet, exercise, lifestyle, supplements, and hormone replacement therapy. It's essential to treat from the whole person's perspective because it is a lifestyle disease. There are so many things you can do from a natural perspective before seeking insulin. At a naturopathic clinic, Dr. Elena collects a basic set of labs. Anytime there is a blood dysregulation, Dr. Elena includes a thyroid panel, sex hormone panel, nutrient analysis, and cortisol. Then, Dr. Elena has an in-depth conversation, and she comes up with a grand master plan for her patients. After following the plan, Dr. Elena will make adjustments as necessary after the first few months. When Dr. Elena sees patients who have tried loads of different diets to lose weight, she sees a problem with the metabolism. Sometimes, these patients need to utilize time-restrictive eating and exercising. With these minor changes, people can start seeing metabolic change. If that's not working, then the patient may need thyroid medication. Again, if that doesn't work, then patients should look at it as a hypothalamic problem. Later, Dr. Elena explains the mindset shift that needs to happen on a health journey. It can take years to cultivate specific skills. Faith is a massive component of wellness. In the past few years, Dr. Elena brings a lot more faith-based conversations to her practice. She likes to talk about what is keeping her patients going - wellness is a journey. Stay tuned as we talk about navigating the health journey during COVID. Plus, Dr. Elena gives her advice to patients with type 2 diabetes. Key Takeaways: [ 1:10 ] Looking at type 2 diabetes from a naturopathic perspective [ 5:30 ] Level of intervention for type 2 diabetes   [ 12:25 ] Assessing patients at a naturopathic clinic [ 16:15 ] The complexities behind blood sugar dysfunction   [ 19:20 ] Strategies for weight-loss resistance patients   [ 31:25 ] Changing our mindset when it comes to wellness   [ 33:45 ] Navigating the health journey during COVID [ 40:25 ] Advice for patients with type 2 diabetes   Mentioned in this Episode: Dr. Elena’s Website: https://proactivehealthnd.com Untethered Soul: https://untetheredsoul.com Follow Dr. Elena: Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/drelenazinkov/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/proactivehealthnd Enjoyed the Podcast?

    E31: How Are Environmental Stressors Causing Inflammation In Your Body? with Maggie Berghoff

    45:15

    Maggie Berghoff is an entrepreneur, and celebrity health consultant. Maggie is the founder of Celproceo, a cutting-edge health and wellness agency rooted in Functional and Integrative Medicine, trusted by celebrities, professional athletes, and CEOs/executives. Maggie has been featured in many outlets such as USA Today, Bloomberg, Entrepreneur, Well + Good, Under Armour, CBS, NBC, Glamour, iheartradio, national television, and several documentaries. She obtained her background in health as a Family Nurse Practitioner graduating both undergraduate and graduate school from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. In this episode, Maggie opens the show explaining how environmental checkups work. When Maggie gets a new client, one of the first things she does is go through the six environmental stressors. The six stressors are air, water, light, sound, EMF, and food. Maggie gives tips on preventing stress in each of these categories: Air Focus on getting outside into nature as much as possible. You have to optimize your home! Make sure that your air is circulating by opening your windows. Air purifiers are fantastic! Specifically, Maggie recommends EnviroKlenz. Make sure that you are changing your filters every couple of months. Water A lot of clients think they are drinking healthy water when they have a refrigerator filter system. The truth is, those systems do not work that well. Instead, Maggie says to look for a reverse osmosis water system – it will add back the good minerals to your water. Maggie recommends using either Aquasana or Home Master for your filter needs. Get some sort of shower head filter to prevent contaminants from the water. Light If you are struggling with diabetes, get outside, and actually see the natural sun at least three times a day. Do not get bright LED lights. In the evening, make sure you have some amber tone lights. Sound Give yourself some time where there is no sound. Your body is interpreting sound all day every day, so it will need quiet time to recharge. EMF EMF is like microwave radiation in your body. The good news, it’s an easy fix. Make sure your phone is an arm’s length away. Another thing you can do is put it in airplane mode. Do not put your laptop on your lap. Disconnect whenever you can. Food If you eat foods that you are intolerant to, they will create inflammation in the body. Get a food intolerance test and avoid those foods. Maggie believes that if you optimize these six things, the inflammation levels in your body will decrease immediately. When the inflammation level is knocked down, you can finally see clearer and ultimately heal your body. Inflammation can come from many things—for instance, bad water, poor air quality, and allergens. When you think of inflammation, think of a splinter in your finger. Your finger will be red, swollen, and hurting. Imagine if there were constant hits on our body internally. After years and years, people will all of sudden experience symptoms. Inflammation will become a problem when it happens all the time. Long-term stress will cause damage to your body. If you have loads of inflammation that is causing diabetes, you will most likely have hormonal imbalances, gut health disturbance, and thyroid issues. Inflammation is a full-body response and a systemic downfall. There is a reason type two diabetes happened. It’s Maggie’s job to find out why. The only way she can do that is by testing what is going on in the body through a whole system’s approach. Maggie doesn’t care what sugar levels are. She cares about what is causing the sugar levels to be out of whack. Some standard tests that Maggie gives her patients are a stool examination, a food intolerance test, and a nutripanel. Stay tuned as Maggie describes the importance of knowing your metabolic type. Plus, Maggie explains why getting your lab tests done is financially worth the price. Key Takeaways: [ 1:15 ] About environmental checkups [ 3:30 ] Where inflammation comes from [ 5:40 ] When inflammation becomes a problem [ 8:45 ] The six environmental stressors   [ 22:10 ] Common tests that Maggie gives her patients [ 26:30 ] About your metabolic type   [ 31:45 ] Why getting your lab tests is financially worth it [ 36:00 ] Maggie gives her final advice Mentioned in this Episode: Maggie’s Website: https://maggieberghoff.com/ Maggie’s Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/maggie_berghoff/ Maggie’s Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/maggieberghoff/ EnviroKlenz: https://enviroklenz.com/maggie-berghoff/ Aquasana: https://www.aquasana.com Home Master: https://www.homemasterfilters.com Trace Elements: https://www.traceelements.com Enjoyed the Podcast?

    E28: Exploring The Cause Of Type 2 Diabetes, with Jeff Cyr

    1:34:51

    In this episode, Jeff Cyr dives deep into his story. In 1977, Jeff was rushed to the emergency room for back surgery. He ended up getting a diagnosis of severe lumbar spinal stenosis. Jeff had a hard time walking because of his permanent nerve damage. Most of the day, Jeff would sit in his La-Z-Boy. At 330 pounds, Jeff would need to use his cane to get out of the chair. In 2005, Jeff went to the doctor for hernia surgery. After routine blood work, the doctor said his fasting blood sugar was 300, and he had an A1C of 12.0. Officially, Jeff was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. They gave Jeff a nutritionist who told him to eat a high-carb diet of whole grains and fruits. In 2008, Jeff finally stopped feeling sorry for himself, and he knew something had to change. So, Jeff stopped smoking cold turkey. After a few months, Jeff quit oral morphine cold turkey. Again, a few months later, Jeff started exercising at Planet Fitness. On the first day of exercising, Jeff rode the bike for two minutes. Each day, Jeff would increase the time on his bike. Over the course of sixteen months, Jeff lost 163 pounds. In 2011, Jeff went to the hospital for a liver biopsy. The doctor called Jeff in for some news. He was diagnosed with an auto-immune fatal liver disease called primary sclerosing cholangitis. Basically, it attacks the bile ducts of the liver. What ends up happening is the bile ducts become large and inflamed. Eventually, it will cause cirrhosis of the liver. When that happens, you need a liver transplant. In 2012, Jeff started his low carbohydrate diet. It took eighteen months, and Jeff’s liver enzymes began to ratchet downwards. Eventually, the liver enzymes were almost healthy. Jeff’s doctor didn’t know what to say. Later, we talk about adiponectin – a protein hormone that is extremely important in regard to type 2 diabetes. It’s an anti-inflammatory hormone, and it reduces cardiovascular risks. Here is a shortlist of what adiponectin does in the human body: Increases fatty acid oxidation. Adiponectin is what makes you insulin sensitive. It preserves pancreatic beta cells. Prevents beta cell death. Promotes uptakes of fatty acids. Increases glucose uptake and fat storage. Jeff explains how to protect your adiponectin levels: Lose weight. Omega 3 fish oil. Any form of exercise. Grapeseed extract in high doses. Normal glucose and normal insulin levels. Stay tuned as we talk about the difference between eating fat and producing fat. Plus, Jeff explains why butter and eggs are not the saturated fats that will cause insulin resistance. Lastly, Jeff says he wants people to stop feeling sorry for themselves, and he recommends reading Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution. Key Takeaways: [ 3:00 ] Jeff Cyr tells his story [ 24:55 ] The contributors to Jeff’s liver disease   [ 29:30 ] All about producing beta cells [ 33:00 ] Educating ourselves about type 2 diabetes   [ 38:15 ] About adiponectin   [ 48:00 ] The drivers for insulin resistance and diabetes   [ 56:10 ] How to protect your adiponectin levels [ 65:30 ] The most important part of adiponectin [ 79:30 ] Eating fat vs. producing and storing fat [ 89:45 ] Jeff’s final advice for people with diabetes  Mentioned in this Episode: Jeff’s Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jeff.cyr.589 Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution: http://www.diabetes-book.com Enjoyed the Podcast?
