Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting. Don’t miss this compelling conversation!

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting. Don’t miss this compelling conversation!

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol.

After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Young discuss her early interest in natural medicine, how a tick bite led to Lyme’s Disease led her to research natural ways to fix her health, her “non-subtle way of yelling” at her audience when she gives a lecture, why people don’t think there is anything that can be done about autism, how her book is tailored for the parents who have done everything to help their child, erasing the cause will erase the symptoms, parents with kids on the autism spectrum have set the bar very low (“no cause, no treatment, no cure” is the mentality), the huge jump in autism spectrum cases in the past few decades, the manganese and iron mineral imbalance, why parents don’t want to have their kids diagnosed so they’re not in the system, how the autism spectrum has been highlighted on television shows like NBC-TV’s “The Slap” miniseries, the surprising response that autistic kids say about whether they are happy or not, those who erroneously believe the autism is what makes them as intelligent as they are, the “Outside The Box” video showing a great success story, the massive increase in processed foods, grains, and GMOs since the 1980’s have made autism rates rise astronomically, how she stumbled on the Paleo principles before she knew about it, the way grains chelate your iron levels, high manganese people are full of anxiety, stress, and panic all the time, the major moneymaking “gravy train” from autism, why eating very high-fat is so essential to the success of her program, how the parents of these autistic kids have no clue about cooking real food, is there any point in time when someone is too far gone to fix their issues, the 26 stunning case studies that support her methodology, why some parents just want to be told what to do, donate to The No Harm Foundation to help educate the public, the enormous amount of opposition she’s faced to the work she is doing, and the famous television doctor who is so beholden to grain-based and pharmaceutical sponsors that he won’t invite her to discuss her protocol.

There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!

After writing a blog post about a Paleo imposter meal delivery company in January entitled We Must Stand Up For Integrity And Authenticity From Paleo Food Companies, Jimmy was contacted by Business Development Director Leanna Cappucci from a genuine Paleo food delivery company called Paleo On The Go. After speaking with her about how they do things the right way, we decided to share a brief interview at the beginning of today’s podcast about what sets them apart. Listen in as Jimmy and Leanna talk briefly about their concerns with companies using “Paleo” merely as a marketing term, why authenticity and integrity matters when you identify with a community like Paleo, the extra steps they’ve taken as a company to be consistent with their commitment to Paleo, the recognition they’ve received for being a credible Paleo company, the various products they offer (even ones that are perfect for people eating low-carb), the customized plans for autoimmune protocol and more (even a possible keto one!), and more! If you share the concern with Paleo becoming too commercialized and losing its meaning, then listen in to this fabulous conversation about a company that understands being authentically Paleo matters.

In today’s primary interview, we welcome in a Berkeley, CA-based gynecologist named Dr. Sara Gottfried who penned a fabulous New York Times bestselling book in 2014 called The Hormone Cure: Reclaim Balance, Sleep and Sex Drive; Lose Weight; Feel Focused, Vital, and Energized Naturally with the Gottfried Protocol. Now she’s back in 2015 with a fantastic follow-up book called The Hormone Reset Diet: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days destined to stir up some controversy but will cause you to stop and think about what it takes to restore your hormonal health.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Gottfried talk about her “radical” grandmother who inspired her to get interested in alternative health, how her own health issues in her early 30’s led her to shift away from conventional medicine, how the medical community too quickly dismisses the role of nutrition, the best evidence comes from randomized controlled trials and n=1 experiments, the study that says we have too many studies, why weight loss isn’t really the focus of resetting your hormones, how you can normalize 7 key hormones that matter the most in as little as three weeks, why she considers herself diet agnostic (real food is the basis), how low-carb impacted her and her patient’s hormone and adrenal levels where adding in enough real food carbs fixed it, the 7 resets she recommends to normalize hormones, the PPARG gene that makes her do better on seafood, how drinking wine ended up breaking her metabolism as she got older, where you can get yourself tested for genes, how the iWatch is going to change the medical professional, how sugar substitutes impact your hormones and propensity for food addiction, why fruit is not a freebie in your diet, how people misinterpret getting seven servings of fruits and vegetables daily into almost all fruit, how getting caffeine out of your life can improve sleep to normalize hormones, why she’s not a fan of whey protein, the obesogens that can directly impact your hormones, the “molecular sex” terminology, and the interesting “Love Your Liver” tonic recipe she shares. This was a fabulous conversation you won’t want to miss!

946: Dr. Carri Drzyzga The Functional Medicine Doc Fights Fatigue

Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 9.23.09 PM

Naturopath, Chiropractor, and Functional Medicine podcaster Dr. Carri Drzyzga is our guest today in Episode 946 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Interest in functional medicine is on the rise as more and more patients are becoming frustrated by the lack of answers from conventional medicine. For an Ottawa, Ontario-based naturopath, chiropractor, and health podcaster named Dr. Carri Drzyzga, she sees functional medicine as the future of mainstream healthcare. Dr. Carri helps her patients at Functional Medicine Ontario and communicates alternative health messages through her popular “The Functional Medicine Doc” podcast. She has seen so many patients dealing with the same issues regarding energy and fatigue that she wrote a book about it entitled Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue With Natural Treatments.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Carri discuss how functional medicine looks for the root cause of disease, how the issue of fatigue is totally missed by conventional medicine, why mainstream medicine isn’t doing what functional medicine doctors are doing, why patients are turning to functional medicine more and more, why she didn’t want to be a medical doctor or nurse (STRESS!), how she discovered chiropractic, the frustration she experienced seeing certain patients not get better, her desire to see them get better pushed her back into school to learn functional medicine, why people think their adrenals are burnt out, why fatigue is so much more than about adrenal function, the role thyroid health plays in fatigue, the role vitamin D deficiency plays in health, the woefully inept low levels of vitamin D recommendations, when you’re deficient in vitamin D it’s like your body is in hibernation mode, why we weren’t designed to live inside a box all day, the key role magnesium plays in the body (and how you can know you have gotten too much), why adding in the calcium into your supplementation can be problematic, the chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 she sees in her patients, the symptoms you’ll have not having enough vitamin B12, why vegans and vegetarians are chronically low in vitamin B12, the psychology of fatigue, the four major brain chemicals, how blood sugar imbalance is fueling fatigue (and why a ketogenic diet can help), the role of stress and sleep plays in health even when diet and fitness is perfect, why being “tired and wired” is a sign of high cortisol levels, the strategies she recommends to help destress, and the book The Slight Edge that taught her about reaching your goals.

945: Dr. Jason Fung Exposes Two Big Lies And How To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Ontario, Canada-based nephrologist, weight loss, and diabetes health expert Dr. Jason Fung is our guest today in Episode 945 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

WATCH DR. JASON FUNG’S YOUTUBE LECTURES

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting. Don’t miss this compelling conversation!

When it comes to doing anything about the variety of conditions on the autism spectrum, some have taken on a fatalistic attitude that there is nothing that can be done about it. But this pessimistic mentality doesn’t sit well with a naturopath named Dr. Shauna Young from the Assertive Wellness Center and the non-profit, publicly-funded No Harm Foundation. She’s now written a new book full of astonishing case studies about her optimistic and effective philosophy on dealing with autism, ADHD, and more called Erasing Autism: The Spectrum Balance Protocol. With an estimated 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum as of statistics from 2014 compared with 1 in 10,000 in the 1980s, this message is needed now more than ever.
