Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing–his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy’s original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.

JIMMY’S JOURNEY WITH FLUCTUATING IRON LEVELS

Jimmy appeared on the Nourish Balance Thrive Podcast in late July to discuss the changes to his diet and other lifestyle issues to shift from this very low iron level to more normal levels in just two months. The suspicion is it was the regular bloodletting that was the culprit in the precipitous drop in iron. Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy’s diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

1002: Christopher Kelly Is Back For An Update On His Work With Jimmy Moore

Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing–his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy’s original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.

JIMMY’S JOURNEY WITH FLUCTUATING IRON LEVELS

JIMMY’S PERISCOPE VIDEO FROM HIS LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET
https://vimeo.com/user21838277

Jimmy appeared on the Nourish Balance Thrive Podcast in late July to discuss the changes to his diet and other lifestyle issues to shift from this very low iron level to more normal levels in just two months. The suspicion is it was the regular bloodletting that was the culprit in the precipitous drop in iron. Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy’s diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

1002: Christopher Kelly Is Back For An Update On His Work With Jimmy Moore

Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing–his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy’s original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.

JIMMY’S JOURNEY WITH FLUCTUATING IRON LEVELS

JIMMY’S PERISCOPE VIDEO FROM HIS LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET
https://vimeo.com/user21838277

Jimmy appeared on the Nourish Balance Thrive Podcast in late July to discuss the changes to his diet and other lifestyle issues to shift from this very low iron level to more normal levels in just two months. The suspicion is it was the regular bloodletting that was the culprit in the precipitous drop in iron. Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy’s diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.

1001: Jamie Koonce Shares The Many Misunderstandings Of Autoimmune Disease

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing–his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy’s original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.

JIMMY’S JOURNEY WITH FLUCTUATING IRON LEVELS

JIMMY’S PERISCOPE VIDEO FROM HIS LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET
https://vimeo.com/user21838277

Jimmy appeared on the Nourish Balance Thrive Podcast in late July to discuss the changes to his diet and other lifestyle issues to shift from this very low iron level to more normal levels in just two months. The suspicion is it was the regular bloodletting that was the culprit in the precipitous drop in iron. Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy’s diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy’s diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing–his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy’s original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

1002: Christopher Kelly Is Back For An Update On His Work With Jimmy Moore

Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing–his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy’s original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.

JIMMY’S JOURNEY WITH FLUCTUATING IRON LEVELS

JIMMY’S PERISCOPE VIDEO FROM HIS LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET
https://vimeo.com/user21838277

Jimmy appeared on the Nourish Balance Thrive Podcast in late July to discuss the changes to his diet and other lifestyle issues to shift from this very low iron level to more normal levels in just two months. The suspicion is it was the regular bloodletting that was the culprit in the precipitous drop in iron. Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy’s diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Sugar has become public health enemy #1 over the past few years as people are discovering the tremendous damage it is inflicting on their weight and health. But the deeply addictive properties of sugar make it extremely difficult to give up so that the healing from years of hyperglycemia and huge insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance can commence. Perhaps what you need is motivation, encouragement, and support to help you go sugar-free at last. That’s precisely what South African anti-sugar troubadour and recovering addict Karen Thomson and Scottish ketogenic nutritional health expert Emily Maguire (you might remember these two amazing ladies were on the podcast together earlier this year in Episode 930 discussing the LCHF Conference that took place in South Africa) are doing during the month of September in what they are dubbing The Sugar Free September Challenge. It’s FREE to anyone around the world and will being on September 1, 2015. CLICK HERE to sign up and get a free support e-book that was written and organized by Emily to help get you started.

Listen in as Jimmy, Karen, and Emily share about how they’ve been working together on sugar addiction programs, how they got inspired to create a free 30-day program, how the program is available to anyone in the whole world, the “overwhelming” response they’ve seen already to this effort, why they decided to make it free, why September is a good time to do a challenge like this, the free e-book everyone gets who joins the challenge, the star-studded guests they’ll have on their “Sugar Free Show,” the difficulty in giving up sugar, why this is a more authentic sugar-free program, the impact of Damon Gameau‘s documentary film That Sugar Film, the negative effects of constantly consuming sugar, why sugar, refined grains, and processed oils are the culprit problems in the diet, what kind of support people can expect during this challenge, how coming off of sugar can impact you physically, and their social media presence that will happen throughout this challenge.

1002: Christopher Kelly Is Back For An Update On His Work With Jimmy Moore

Screen Shot 2015-09-02 at 7.26.27 AM

Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner and graduate of the Kalish Institute Christopher Kelly is our guest today in Episode 1002 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Two years ago, Jimmy was dealing with borderline hemochromatosis and thus cut his red meat consumption, stopped using cast iron skillets, and gave blood every two months as a means for bringing this down. However, when he did some functional medicine tests in April with a Certified Functional Diagnostic Practitioner named Christopher Kelly from NourishBalanceThrive.com, what they found was quite disturbing–his blood iron levels were now extremely low to the level of iron deficiency anemia. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke reading, they tested again in May where it dropped even further. Listen to Jimmy’s original recording with Christopher Kelly in Episode 961.

JIMMY’S JOURNEY WITH FLUCTUATING IRON LEVELS

JIMMY’S PERISCOPE VIDEO FROM HIS LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET
https://vimeo.com/user21838277

Jimmy appeared on the Nourish Balance Thrive Podcast in late July to discuss the changes to his diet and other lifestyle issues to shift from this very low iron level to more normal levels in just two months. The suspicion is it was the regular bloodletting that was the culprit in the precipitous drop in iron. Jimmy took several proactive steps to raise his iron, including eating red meat daily, taking an iron supplement, and ending his blood giving. All this increased his blood iron levels from 23 to 76 in May to June and then from 76 to the normal level of 122 in June to July. As you can see from the graph above, two years ago his iron was on the very high level which is why he took steps to reduce it. He did it a little too well. Listen in as Jimmy and Christopher discuss the changes made to Jimmy’s diet and other lifestyle factors to deal with his fat loss woes.

1001: Jamie Koonce Shares The Many Misunderstandings Of Autoimmune Disease

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

It all started on October 23, 2006 when our host Jimmy Moore first stepped behind the microphone of this podcast to begin a historic journey that has now taken him into podcasting infamy.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.
