Doctorate in Physical Therapy, nutritional biochemist, and functional endocrinologist Dr. Tim Jackson is our guest today in Episode 941 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
There are so many complex issues in the realm of health that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with it all. That’s why we try to find experts who can explain these sorts of ideas in language that makes sense to the layperson. Today’s interview guest is certainly one of those–Dr. Tim Jackson from HealYourBody.org. He is a Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) who quickly realized his training was limited in truly helping improve the health of the patients he was seeing. That’s when he started studying functional medicine looking into digestive health, nutrition, and functional endocrinology which all remain a strong passion.
Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jackson discuss how he committed to exercise while in college and found benefits, the jaw surgery he had in college for an underbite that he now regrets, the various infections he learned he had that helped restore his health, how people are thrown into surgeries without much screening, his experience in physical therapy where he uses supplements to help clients, how he tries to find the “biggest health rocks,” the flaws in the CDSA test that cultures the bugs compared with the PCR test (from Metametrics) in the DNA for measuring gut health, artificial sweeteners are killing the bacteria in the gut, whether or not there is scientific data that state very low-carb diets are harmful to gut health, how stress takes away from your ability to digest, the nutritional and lifestyle ways to heal the damage to the gut, if you have an infection you need to use antimicrobials, herbs, and maybe medications to remove it, the impact that mold toxicity has on gut health and overall health, how to determine the species of mold you have in your home using the ERMI and HERTSMI-2 tests, the HLA-DR mold genotype that makes some people hypersensitive to mold while others aren’t impacted at all, the epigenetics vs. genetics debate, the biochemical hiccup that can impact your immunity, detoxification, and hormones, the MTHFR enzyme that plays a role in the use of folic acid, how exposure to EMFs from wi-fi can be as toxic to your cells as mold, and more!
