    Dr Tommy Wood -Optimal Health & Wellness - Diet, Exercise and Your Environment with

    HealthCast Now - The Intersection of Health, Wellness & Circadian Optimization starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Tommy Wood is the chief medical officer of Nourish Balance Thrive, a company that developed a science-based, personalized support program to help clients regain their optimal performance through various lifestyle changes. Before he found the path to fitness and wellness, Tommy’s idea of a health routine involved lots of TV time and a pack of cookies. He escaped that life when he went to college to get a degree in biochemistry, worked as a traditional doctor of medicine, and obtained a PhD in physiology and neuroscience. He has since worked with many clients and helped them get their lives back. Today, Tommy shares his thoughts on the importance of sleep, what he thinks real food should be made of, and why getting a six-pack now might not be great for long-term. "It's very difficult to do circadian rhythm and sleep by brute force.” Dr. Tommy Wood In this episode, you’ll learn: If a client hits a plateau, it's usually the environment than exercise and diet. Circadian rhythm is important for long term wellness. It's not just about avoiding blue light, but also getting a lot of sunlight during the day. It's important to have a tailored fit into your wellness routine. Eating seasonally is eating the way the body is designed to eat. Where you are and what grows locally there tell you what you should be eating. Be your own health advocate and watch out for biased articles or studies. Even Olive oil products can be adulterated and become unhealthy for consumption. Do your research and make sure it's all made of olive oil. If you are trying to get a certain performance in a certain sport, then some form of excess training is fine, but what you may be training might not be good for you in the long term. Tommy shares what The Upside Down Movement Pyramid is all about. Strength and muscle mass are some of the best predictors of longevity. When it comes to following advice from someone in social media, be careful. What someone projects and what's going on under the hood is not the same thing. Looking online for answers or being part of a community is okay, but don't forget to have personal connections outside the internet. The earlier you build these relationships, the better. Key Takeaways: You’re better off being strong and healthy for 70-80 years rather than have a six-pack now and go down from there. Anything that doesn't come in a package or cook from a single ingredient is real food. If it comes in a box, don't buy it. When you spend so much time on social media, you won't get deep connection or purpose you need for long term health. Find some human interaction.

Dr. Sachin has worked with countless top-performing professional athletes, Olympians, and patients and strongly believes that the reason that some patients feel they are not receiving appropriate health from the medical practitioners is because “the approach is completely backwards.” Today, he explains why getting to the root of the cause of an illness or disease by incorporating proven, functional medicine techniques can significantly impact a person’s overall health and wellness. He provides simple, valuable tips and strategies that anyone can incorporate into their day-to-day routine and experience significant results. “When it comes to our health, it’s simple things we do consistently that can set off the chain reaction of nature.” – Dr. Sachin Patel In This Episode You Will Learn: How functional medicine and traditional medicine differ. Why Dr. Sachin believes that functional medicine is the future of medicine. Autonomic tone and how it affects the healing process. How cortisol and insulin are closely related Why nutrition, meal scheduling, and the mental state we are in during a meal are so important to how we digest food. The only thing proven to change our microbiome long term isn’t probiotics. It’s our diet. Trying to be perfect creates a recipe for failure.

    Health, Wellness and Fitness - How to not break your metabolism and lose weight

    HealthCast Now - The Intersection of Health, Wellness & Circadian Optimization starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Yuri Elkaim is a popular name in the world of health and nutrition, but it wasn’t like that before. In fact, Yuri was practically clueless when it came to nutrition, but he did love sports especially soccer/football. His life changing moment was when he realized his bouts of hair loss were brought about by an autoimmune issue called alopecia. Doctors couldn’t explain why, so he thought he would live the rest of his life hairless.

    It wasn’t until he learned about holistic nutrition that he ended up curing himself. He has since strived to help those around him, to give them hope that there is still a way to treat whatever health issues they might have.

    Today, Yuri tells us his story of how he became the Yuri we know now, his thoughts on the whole “Metabolism is like a fireplace” analogy, why he thinks fasting is good for you, the importance of sleep when it comes to making decisions, and why we should learn to decipher when we’re hungry and when we’re full without relying on an eating schedule.

    “There's no law that says 'thou shall have to do cardio after my weight training.'” Yuri Elkaim

    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    The typical North American diet is not healthy at all. The fireplace analogy on metabolism is a myth. Eating all the time to "stoke the flames" won't help you lose weight. In fact, it might lead to more unnecessary weight gain and energy crashing. Metabolism is the sum of all the breakdown and buildup in your body; catabolism and anabolism. 70% of the calories you burn come from BMR or the calories burned at rest. This is heavily dependent on lean muscle mass. If you want to lose weight you have to pack on some muscle. It’s a long-term approach to not just weight loss but overall wellness too. Fasting is not starving yourself. When done right, you can fast regularly aka intermittent fasting. People can be psychologically hungry or physiologically hungry. Psychologically hunger is triggered by environmental or emotional cues to make you feel comfortable in certain situations. Listening to your body can mean not eating at the usual time; breakfast at 1 PM is when you break your fast. Too much cardio crushes your thyroid and the problem is not the exercises themselves but the duration and frequency. Endurance cardio is not exactly the ideal form of exercise for long-term. Leptin and Ghrelin are hunger hormones sensitive to sleep. Leptin tells you to stop eating and Ghrelin tells you to keep eating. Less sleep produces more ghrelin and reduces leptin.

    Key Takeaways:

    Eat when you’re hungry and stop when your full. You have to be aware "when" you’re hungry. Women shouldn't be worried about building muscle as they are not as naturally capable of bulking compared to men. When you sleep, try to make the room a lot like a dark, cold tomb. It’ll boost the quality of your sleep more than sleeping in a warm room penetrated by light.

    Health, Wellness & Longvevity via Investing in Your Own Body with Krisstina Wise Healthcare, Healthy living via being your own health, wellness and longevity advocate

    HealthCast Now - The Intersection of Health, Wellness & Circadian Optimization starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Krisstina Wise is known as a real estate genius, financial coach, and podcast host. She was always a go-getter, making sure she makes use of her time and money in the most efficient ways possible to not only accomplish her goals, but also make sure her successes lead to money and lots of it. She achieved what she set out to do, but at the cost of her own health.

    She has since embarked on the journey to learn more about how to keep her health in line with her goals as well, as how to be always in touch with her inner self, despite all things that may cause distractions.

    Today, Krisstina talks about her health journey, her opinions on our healthcare system, and her tips on how people can invest in their health according to what they expect their body to accomplish.

    "If you were a billionaire you'd give your last billion dollars to get your health back if that's what it cost.” Krisstina Wise

    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    Krisstina was always going for the hustle and it yielded magnificent results. This model worked well until it didn’t and shortly found herself in her death bed just days after celebrating her recent accomplishments. She thought she was the epitome of good health with what she knew about health and wellness before being in her death bed. She was so into accomplishments and social circles that she overlooked her health. In the end, she consulted with a functional practitioner and cost her $250,000.00 to get her life back on track. She spent $250,000.00 because her body was her best asset. She realized none of her achievements mattered compared to her family and her own health and personal happiness. She also realized we should change the way we approach our healthcare system. We invest very little in our health; our body is our number one asset. When we don't have our body we can't make money or live a meaningful life. She also likened the way we should care for our body to how we care for cars. Our body is meant to go fast but we also have to make sure we invest in their constant maintenance to perform at that level. She says people have three freedoms to achieve: Political, Health, and Financial freedom.

    Key Takeaways:

    Money matters more than anything but it’s not about the money. You have to know how much money is enough. When you’re able to quantify that, you become more content with life. When your health is taken away there is no freedom. Invest on your health based on how much your body, your main asset, is worth.

    Tara Grant, also known as Primal Girl, has been living an ancestral lifestyle since 2009. Her story wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies, though, as she also struggled with her weight and her own body issues all throughout her life. Before she knew of the Paleo diet, she tried other fad diets which literally did nothing for her. Even the doctors didn’t know what to do with her condition. It wasn’t until she read about living a Paleo lifestyle that she finally managed to bring about a huge transformation. She has since actively told her story, her struggles and successes, so she can serve as an inspiration to others. In today’s episode, Tara talks about the many changes she's made to transform herself, her own fitness inspirations, and her story of how she changed her life from being a 260 lbs. struggling dieter to a 143 lbs. personal trainer. “Listen to your gut, to yourself. If something works or doesn't work for you then that's true for you.” Tara Grant In this episode, you’ll learn: The many fad diets she tried that didn’t work despite her fondness of training and dieting. What book inspired her to revise her lifestyle for the better. She felt so weak and riddled with autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, it was like she was an 80-year-old in her 20’s. Her body had insulin issues so the Paleo diet was perfect due to the low carb requirement. She went full paleo overnight. Having too much dairy in your diet might be what’s causing you many health problems. Full functional movement, with or without weights, is better than using machines. Being able to bend over and touch your toes is a pretty good indication of health. The importance of sleeping and waking up in a more “natural” manner. Eliminating blue light is the best practice before sleep. Be more social outside your phone. Physical human interaction is a necessity for our survival as a species. Key Takeaways: We're the only mammals that think we need milk after nursing so try and see what happens when you remove all forms of dairy for at least 30 days.

    Dave Asprey - Headstrong, Biohacking Mitochondrial Health for optimal Health & Wellness

    HealthCast Now - The Intersection of Health, Wellness & Circadian Optimization starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Head Strong Book & Optimizing Mitochondrial Health and Wellness with Dave Asprey Dave Asprey is the founder of Bulletproof Exec, a company geared towards biohacking to make sure the human body not only functions optimally, but ages slowly too. Before the invention of the now famous Bulletproof coffee, Dave was just another man walking the halls of Silicon Valley who once weighed a total of 300 unhealthy pounds. That was 20 years ago and he has since lost 100 pounds. He devoted his life to health and longevity and spent 15 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars hacking his own biology. Today, Dave talks about his new book called Head Strong, the reason why he wrote that book, his latest findings, and why he is now one of mitochondria’s biggest fans. "I changed breakfast for millions of people using biohacking.” Dave Asprey In this episode, you’ll learn: The Bulletproof Diet teaches you how to eat to have more energy and power with weight loss as a side effect. His new book explains why the Bulletproof diet works. When you know how mitochondria works, walking barefoot makes sense, cold bathing makes sense. Neurons in the brain prefer ketones, but glial cells prefer glucose more than ketones. Our brain has thousands more mitochondria than the whole body. Light is terribly important for mitochondrial health. You can get energy from melanin, not just in your skin, but also in your brain and eyes. Mitochondrial dysfunction can also be called aging. Key Takeaways: Mitochondria are the ones calling the shots, not you. Your mitochondria listen to your phone and Wi-Fi. The mitochondria are the smallest unit of consciousness in the body and the fastest bio sensors.

    Tyler LeBaron - Molecular Hydrogen for optimal health, wellness & longevity - Part 2

    HealthCast Now - The Intersection of Health, Wellness & Circadian Optimization starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Tyler LeBaron - Part 2 of 2

    Tyler W. LeBaron is the Founder and Executive Director of the science-based nonprofit Molecular Hydrogen Foundation/Institute. His background is in biochemistry and was a 1-year Adjunct Instructor of Physiology. He Interned at Nagoya University in the department of Neurogenetics to research the molecular mechanisms of hydrogen gas on cell signaling pathways. He is a director of the International Hydrogen Standards Association (IHSA) and the International Molecular Hydrogen Association (IMHA). He speaks at Medical conferences in the US for doctors CMEs/CEUs, and at academic biomedical hydrogen symposia and conferences around the world. He is also a member of the Academic Committee of Taishan Institute for Hydrogen Biomedical Research. He collaborates with researchers at home and abroad, and helps advance the education, research, and awareness of hydrogen as a therapeutic medical gas.

    Molecular hydrogen (H2) or diatomic hydrogen is a tasteless, odorless, flammable gas.

    Over 500 peer-reviewed articles demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 150 different human disease models. H2 reduces oxidative stress as a selective antioxidant and by maintaining homeostatic levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc. H2, like other gaseous signaling molecules (i.e. NO, CO, H2S), appears to have cell signal-modulating activity affording it with anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-allergy benefits.

    Part 4 Episode - with Morley Robbins on magnesium. Today, our host Kevin Cottrell talks with magnesium expert Morley Robbins – aka The Magnesium Man – to demystify the confusion and misconceptions on how important magnesium is for our bodies to function properly. Morley formerly worked as a hospital executive and consultant for over 32 years and currently works as a certified health coach. He has helped over 7,000 people on a one-on-one basis. Morley explains how magnesium and vitamin D work in conjunction at the cellular level to maintain our heart, brain, gastrointestinal functions as well as other important areas of our body. He explains how this mineral works in our bodies and what can happen when we are not getting enough of either magnesium or vitamin D – as well as provides actionable tips on how you can check your magnesium and vitamin D levels and ways you can improve these levels to prevent various chronic health problems. “Most people regard minerals as ‘hood ornaments’ instead of ‘keys to start the engine’.” – Morley Robbins In This Episode You Will Learn: How does magnesium affect the heart, brain, and gastrointestinal functions? 45% of your metabolic function is attributed to magnesium. How stress affects your magnesium levels. Why a physically fit, seemingly healthy person can still experience magnesium and mineral deficiency issues. The importance of vitamin D, sunlight, and how it relates to magnesium. Morley’s advice for people with vitamin D deficiencies. Ways to increase vitamin D naturally while balancing your circadian rhythm. How stress leads to fibrosis. Why you need a magnesium RBC test instead of a serum test. The differences between lab magnesium ranges and healthy magnesium ranges. What to do if your magnesium RBC test is out of range. Common stress-inducing factors. Early Signs of Low Magnesium: Regular headaches Constipation Acid reflux Cramping in your feet and hands Diseases related to low magnesium: Alzheimer’s Disease Parkinson’s Disease Lu Gehrig’s Disease Huntingdon’s Disease Multiple Sclerosis Heart Disease Liver and Digestive Disorders Mentioned in This Episode: The Magnesium Miracle book by Carolyn Dean The Magnesium Advocacy Group Magnesium RBC Test Key Takeaway: Be mindful of the fact that as you go through your day, and the stressfulness of your day, your body is going through a magnesium burn rate. Be vigilant of the price tag you are paying for that stress. Get a vitamin D test.

    Matt Maruca - Part 2 of 2

    From Matt's website: http://mattmaruca.com/about/

    "My name is Matt Maruca. I’m a student of this planet who strives to be the best person that I can, for myself and for others. I have created this site to share what I find to be the truth through my experiences.

    As we learn more, our understanding of the truth will constantly shift, so please understand that if my perspective on something shifts, it is because I have gained new knowledge that requires me to update previous beliefs.

    By age 13, even though I have gone to the “best” schools and been granted with tremendous financial privilege, I suffered from numerous health problems that made it very difficult to enjoy my life, which you can read about here. So many “solutions”, both conventional and unconventional, failed to help me, so I began a journey and took my health into my own hands.

    For tens of thousands of years, people have spent their lives trying to answer the questions “what is life?” “how does life work?” “what creates health?” and “how can we prevent disease?”. The discovery of quantum physics in the early 1900’s began to indicate that life uses quantum principles to stay animated far from equilibrium, because equilibrium for us is a corpse in a coffin. Only in the last 100 years have we had devices sensitive enough to measure these phenomena in cells, to begin to understand what life really is. The research in this field, known as Quantum Biology, has been done by researchers in disciplines, such as bioelectromagnetism, photobiology, water chemistry, mitochondrial medicine, etc., but they were disparate and many unaware of the implications of their work.

    We currently face an epidemic of chronic disease in our society, and most young people have high odds of developing anxiety, depression, heart disease, obesity, autoimmune disease, and/or cancer. Only recently have some doctors and scientists, begun to synthesize the field of Quantum Biology to create an understanding of health and life that allows anyone to create optimal health and prevent or reverse these chronic diseases completely. Among these is Dr. Jack Kruse, a neurosurgeon who has put together the pieces of this puzzle on his blog and created protocols that anyone can use to prevent and reverse chronic disease for optimal health. He is my primary mentor, and much of what I share is some form of his work adapted in a form that I believe will be most useful for anyone reading this".
