The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

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.

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.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

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.

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.

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.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

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!

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.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

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.

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.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more!

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.

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.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more!

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.

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.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

Listen in as Jimmy and Sally discuss what has been happening in her work since her last appearance on the podcast in 2010, why she decided to focus primarily on children’s health in her new book, why the mainstream medical establishment basically dismisses the Vitamin B12 deficiency connection to disease, the vital importance Vitamin B12 plays on brain development in kids, how Vitamin B12 deficiency may be directly contributing to autism and other issues on the autism spectrum, why an expectant mother needs to have proper Vitamin B12 levels to pass on to her baby, the feature film that was made about her life story, and so much more! We are honored and thrilled to have such an illustrious expert joining us on the show today. Soak this one in and ENJOY!

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.

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.

The rise of interest in the relationship between gut health and virtually every other aspect of overall health has been quite stark over the past couple of years. And for a Naples, Florida-based board-certified neurologist and perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Perlmutter (listen to our previous interviews with him in Episode 867, Episode 725, and on Ask The Low-Carb Experts Episode 51), the impact of the microbiome on the brain is indelibly connected. You probably know him well for his focus on the dangers of consuming grains on your brain health with his recent runaway hit books Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar–Your Brain’s Silent Killers and The Grain Brain Cookbook: More Than 150 Life-Changing Gluten-Free Recipes to Transform Your Health. But now he’s back with a brand new book in 2015 zeroing in on this banding together of gut-brain health entitled Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain–for Life.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Perlmutter have a fascinating discussion of how the gut bacteria plays a critical role in brain health, the scientific relationship between poor gut health and issues like depression, mood disorders, and other cognitive disorders, why inflammation and bowel permeability develop in someone with poor gut health, the damaging effects that women having a C-section are putting on the future health of their babies, the devastating impact of overusing antibiotics on the human microbiome that leads to obesity, the key markers to look for demonstrating gut permeability, how fecal transplants can be helpful in treating infections as well as replenishing gut flora that’s been depleted, how reducing carbohydrates and consuming more probiotic foods is critical to reestablishing gut and brain health, why the foods you choose to consume are the biggest factor in revolutionizing brain health through the gut, the kind of fermented foods you should be eating in your low-carb diet, and so much more! If you’re just eating low-carb and thinking that’s enough to make every aspect of your health optimal, then you’ll want to hear what Dr. David Perlmutter has to say about enhancing your low-carb lifestyle to improve your health, especially in the brain, even more!

952: Sally Pacholok Says Vitamin B12 Deficiency Impacting Child Brain Development

The state of modern health is in shambles and everyone knows it. While there is so much attention placed on this diet or that diet as a means of fixing this problem, it’s a much more complicated issue than simply the food you eat. Embracing real food certainly provides you with the proper nutrients your body needs to function optimally, but there are unintended consequences to health when people don’t get certain micronutrients like Vitamin B12 into their body. This has been the passion of nearly three decades of work by a Shelby, Michigan-based ER nurse and paramedic named Sally M. Pacholok, RN (listen to her previous interview sharing about her book Could It Be B12?: An Epidemic of Misdiagnoses on the podcast way back in Episode 411).

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR SALLY PACHOLOK THE MOVIE

https://youtu.be/kuiu5_T4zB4
Sally herself was diagnosed herself with Vitamin B12 deficiency after doctors failed to properly identify her condition. That’s what started her on a rebellious mission to share with the whole world about the impact this is having on people. What she began to notice over the years of observing patients was a significant lack of this one micronutrient was leading to some rather profound issues with children beginning in the womb and all the way through adolescence and their brain development. That’s why she decided to write a new book in 2015 detailing this unspoken health concern in our kids (and adults too!) entitled What’s Wrong with My Child?: From Neurological and Developmental Disabilities to Autism…How to Protect Your Child from B12 Deficiency where she outlines the symptoms to be on the lookout for and offers up solutions for parents on how to best prevent this from happening in their children. In fact, Sally’s work with Vitamin B12 deficiency has made such a profound impact on the lives of real people that they released a feature film entitled Sally Pacholok about her life story in 2015 (coming soon to theaters–watch the trailer above!).
