Migraine headaches can be incredibly debilitating and disrupt the life of seemingly anyone at anytime. But what if there were a nutritional component behind why these headaches happen? That’s exactly what a neurologist and founder of the Atlanta Center for Headache Relief named Dr. Josh Turknett has been about since conducting research on migraines and neurodegenerative diseases. In fact, he’s written a book about it entitled The Migraine Miracle: A Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, Ancestral Diet to Reduce Inflammation and Relieve Your Headaches for Good sharing the kind of diet changes he uses with patients with great success in ridding them of headache pain.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Turknett talk about his book and why he wrote it, why modern high-carb diets are leading directly to migraines, the association between Vitamin D, sunshine, and headaches, how processed foods like Dorito’s can trigger an immediate headache, how he approaches his patients to teach them about proper nutrition, how a low-carb ketogenic diet can improve headaches, what his fellow neurologists think about his dietary approach to treating his patients, his personal experience using ancestral health principles with patients that has revolutionized the way he practices medicine, what he learned from being involved in pharmaceutical research, his unique view of obesity from a neurologist’s perspective and so much more. Ironically, I had one of the worst headaches I’ve ever had in the midst of doing this interview, so it was especially relevant to him that day. Listen and enjoy!

872: Dr. Ted Naiman Shares His Two-Ingredient Secret To Optimum Health

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 7.51.02 PM

Seattle, Washington-based board-certified family medicine practitioner and low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet proponent Dr. Ted Naiman is our interview guest today Episode 872 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

The medical profession has reached a point where many doctors and nurses are finally opening their eyes to the critical role that nutrition and fitness is playing on the health of their patients. While medical school is teaching them how to manage diseases primarily with prescription medications and very little emphasis on diet, people like board-certified family medicine physician Dr. Ted Naiman from “Burn Fat Not Sugar” who practices at the Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, Washington, are taking matters into their own hands and doing what works best for their patients. The 42-year old first learned about low-carb diets when he was an intern and heard about it from a patient who reversed the ill effect of his Type 2 diabetes with the Atkins diet. When he went to medical school, Dr. Naiman ignored the discouragement from his instructors and started researching the macronutrients and the impact they have on health. What he discovered about low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diets astounded him and he’s been recommending them ever since.

It’s always a fascinating conversation when Jimmy interviews enlightened medical professionals and Dr. Naiman doesn’t disappoint.

871: Leanne Ely Encourages A ‘Part-Time Paleo’ Approach To Reach The Masses

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 7.57.30 AM

Nutritionist, syndicated columnist, and New York Times bestselling author Leanne Ely is our interview guest today Episode 871 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

Paleo has become quite the buzzword in recent years as the movement dedicated to helping people remove grains, processed foods, vegetable oils, and refined carbohydrates from their diet (along with dairy and even nightshades for a few) has grown by leaps and bounds. It was the #1 most-Googled diet search term of 2013 and shows no signs of slowing down. We have people like Robb Wolf, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Loren Cordain, Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, and many more for helping to put the message out there in books, blogs and podcasts. With the promulgation of the Paleo principles into our culture, more and more people are now enamored by it and want to give it a go for themselves to see how it helps them in their health. Because it can seem daunting at first to those who are coming off the Standard American Diet (SAD), nutritionist, syndicated columnist and New York Times bestselling author Leanne Ely from “Saving Dinner” believes it’s important to ease some people into Paleo rather than opting for diving in head-first in one swell foop!

That’s why she wrote her new book Part-Time Paleo: How to Go Paleo Without Going Crazy to help people remove the obstacles that stand in their way of giving the Paleo diet the old college try by getting them started on the right foot in a way that is doable immediately so they can reap the great benefits that come from a real-foods based lifestyle change. As an experienced recipe maker and whiz kid in the kitchen, Leanne shares her tips for stocking your food shelves with the best ingredients to make amazing meals. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanne discuss her concept of “part-time” Paleo and how it can be the inroads for a much larger segment of the population to adopt to Paleo more quickly than some of the more intimidating approaches.

870: Danielle Walker Helps You Commit To Paleo Living With Meals Made Simple

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 9.16.03 PM

Grain-free nutritional health blogger and New York Times bestselling author Danielle Walker is our interview guest today Episode 870 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

LISTEN AND DOWNLOAD AT ITUNES

A mother and dedicated wife named Danielle Walker from the “Against All Grain” blog burst on the scene coming out of nowhere in 2013 with the release of her runaway smash debut book Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great which has gone on to become one of the most popular health books in recent years hitting the New York Times bestsellers list again and again. She’s been the benefactor of the growing movement by people to start ditching the grains for good as a means for optimizing their health (no doubt this desire has been heavily influenced by two other seminal health books that have dominated the New York Times bestsellers list in recent years–Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis and Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter).

Now Danielle is back with her brand new 2014 book release Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain: Meals Made Simple: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Paleo Recipes to Make Anytime offering up another serving of recipes that are helping to keep her healthy. After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that left her emaciated when she was 22 years old, she realized that she needed to make dietary changes to end her suffering. Danielle did some research and learned she could improve her health and gain weight again by removing the grains, lactose, and legumes from her diet which she did with great success. Now she’s helping hundreds of thousands of people through her blog and books to get their health back and enjoy food again. With her culinary skills, love for food, and uplifting attitude towards health (which you’ll hear on full display in today’s interview), Danielle has become a source of hope for others suffering from all types of diseases and allergies. Listen in as Jimmy and Danielle have a delightful conversation about her overwhelming success promoting grain-free living.
