With all the proliferation of information about the positive role fats play in our diet (especially in the context of a reduced-carbohydrate intake), it can sometimes get overwhelming trying to figure out what fats to consume and how much. As so many of you know, all fats are not created equal and some are better than others at giving you the benefits you are looking for. This is something a PhD in Lipid and Nutritional Biochemistry who also has some post-doctoral experience in lipid signaling molecular biology named Dr. Alvin Berger is abundantly aware of. He’s been researching this subject for the past three decades and has seen his fair share of games being played to bamboozle an unsuspecting general public, including with the much-beloved ketogenic fat so many of us use known as MCT oil. This is why he created a company that makes what is arguably the best quality MCT oil on the market today called KetoMCT. As you will quickly hear when you listen to him today, Dr. Berger has a keen ability to analyze research data to generate clear, concise reports and presentations for lay, business, and scientific audiences and he has been a featured published expert on signaling and nutritional aspects of lipids, with a broad knowledge of whole body metabolism and current trends in nutrition research and product development. You’re gonna love this interview if you have any interest in MCT oil at all.

1197: Dr. Anna Lembke Says Overprescribing Doctors To Blame For Opioid Addiction

1197: Dr. Anna Lembke Says Overprescribing Doctors To Blame For Opioid Addiction

Assistant professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, psychiatrist and addiction medicine specialist Dr. Anna Lembke is our interview guest featured today in Episode 1197 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

Opioid addiction has become a very serious problem in the United States alone as a whopping 16,000 people die annually from overdosing on painkillers such as morphine, methadone, Buprenorphine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone using the name brands OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, Percodan, Tylox and Demerol. And 75% of people who are addicted to heroin got their start on one of these seemingly innocuous pain medications they were prescribed by their well-meaning doctor attempting to help them recover from an injury or surgery. This is something an assistant professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, psychiatrist and addiction medicine specialist named Dr. Anna Lembke has seen so often as a pattern in her own patients dealing with opioid addiction that she wanted to sound the alarm on this growing epidemic in an alarming new book that is rocking the medical community called Drug Dealer, MD: How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It’s So Hard to Stop.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Lembke discuss all the statistics regarding opioid prescription prevalence and the correlation with the increased drug addiction, why most doctors who get their patients addicted don’t know what to do about it, the lack of help from insurance companies to pay for recovery, the millions who have to cope with this out of no fault of their own, the misguided cultural paradigm that demands a pill solution to every health problem, the role of the pharmaceutical companies in this epidemic, the problems in the Affordable Care Act that give precedence to pills, procedures, and patient satisfaction over wellness, and the broken healthcare system that needs to be completely overhauled and fixed in order to resolve this problem that isn’t going away anytime soon. This is one of the most explosive interviews on a hot topic we’ve had in a while. Please share it with anyone taking prescription pain medications or dealing with opioid drug addiction.

The uses of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet are numerous providing health benefits for a wide variety of chronic diseases. One of the most well-known effects of being in a state of nutritional ketosis is for the treatment of epilepsy. This is something a Bethesda, Maryland-based epileptologist and ketogenic diet practitioner named Dr. Pavel Klein from EpilepsyAndSleep.com is abundantly aware of treating his epileptic patients with this oft-overlooked modality for healing. He also discovered this way of eating is great for treating his Type 2 diabetes patients as well. Dr. Klein started a food-based home delivery program called Anemone Lifestyle to help with compliance to the nutritional plan designed to reverse the negative impact of these and other diseases typically treated with prescription medications.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Klein talk about why he got into this field of epileptology (what the heck is that anyway?), how a ketogenic diet helps treat epilepsy, the discovery of this diet as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes, the physiological process of achieving diabetes remission with keto, the Anemone Lifestyle treatment protocol, why he believes in his patients eating frequent meals throughout the day, the potential for ketogenic diet in treating other diseases outside of weight loss, epilepsy, and Type 2 diabetes, and so much more! If you’re into ketosis and want to learn from one of the cutting-edge practitioners using this with patients, then this is the interview for you!

Only recently has it been discovered that the brain produces new brain cells throughout our entire lives. This process of the rate of new brain cell growth is known by scientists as neurogenesis and it has a profound influence upon every aspect of our life. When the rate of neurogenesis is low, we see cognitive deficits and memory problems such as anxiety and stress, depression, and lowered immunity. In other words, it makes living your life very difficult. But with high rates of neurogenesis we see exactly the opposite: enhanced cognitive abilities, rapid learning, emotional resilience, protection from anxiety, stress and depression, a heightened immunity and robust health. The brain just works better. This is something a Professor of Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies, brain health consultant, and author Dr. Brant Cortright from BrantCortright.com who has become enamored with nutrition and lifestyle changes that will increase neurogenesis. Dr. Cortright has outlined 4-point program for doing exactly that in his compelling new book The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle: Upgrade Your Brain, Upgrade Your Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Cortright discuss the process of neurogenesis, what we are doing in our diet and lifestyle that significantly lowers the rate of brain cell growth, the massive effects of lowering and increasing neurogenesis, why a ketogenic diet is an extraordinary lifestyle shift in boosting brain cell growth, Dr. Cortright’s experience using nutritional ketosis for better brain power, a fascinating new study on how exercise boosts ketone levels which promotes the expression of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and so much more! If you care about your brain health and want to learn more about why and how to maintain a robust cranium, then this is one interview you won’t want to miss.
