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.

One of our favorite guests, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, returns today to discuss his latest book, Ignore the Awkward: How the Cholesterol Myths Are Kept Alive.

We’re also happy to share a second interview today featuring former vegan and current Paleo blogger at the “Let Them Eat Meat” blog Rhys Southan to discuss the research of Denise Minger and the work of people like Lierre Keith among others in showing the potential harmful effects of veganism and under-supplementation (among many other topics!).

441: Todd Becker On Getting Stronger By Adding Stress

Play

Scientist and blogger Todd Becker is our guest on today’s episode of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

Todd Becker is the blogger behind the “Getting Stronger” blog, where he is a proponent of using the effects of Hormesis and stress to improve health and strength. What is hormesis? Listen in for the full explanation, but here’s a quote from Todd’s site:

Hormesis is a biological phenomenon whereby a beneficial effect (improved health, stress tolerance, growth or longevity) results from exposure to low doses of an agent that is otherwise toxic or lethal when given at higher doses.

Sounds a bit like homeopathy? Well, actually it’s not. Plus, according to Todd it is an accepted scientific principle, unlike homeopathy which generally is not. Listen in for all the details and why you just may need MORE stress rather than less!
