It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family? When it comes to purchasing a cow from a local farmer, there are certain things to look out for to know if they are doing things the right way. That’s why we invited on a grass-fed cattle rancher from Braintree, Massachusetts named Joanie Walker from Walker Farm at Whorltleberry Hill. She knows the games that many farmers try to play with consumers pretending to provide quality meats for them to eat and is here today to provide her expert tips for buying grass-fed beef.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family? When it comes to purchasing a cow from a local farmer, there are certain things to look out for to know if they are doing things the right way. That’s why we invited on a grass-fed cattle rancher from Braintree, Massachusetts named Joanie Walker from Walker Farm at Whorltleberry Hill. She knows the games that many farmers try to play with consumers pretending to provide quality meats for them to eat and is here today to provide her expert tips for buying grass-fed beef.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family? When it comes to purchasing a cow from a local farmer, there are certain things to look out for to know if they are doing things the right way. That’s why we invited on a grass-fed cattle rancher from Braintree, Massachusetts named Joanie Walker from Walker Farm at Whorltleberry Hill. She knows the games that many farmers try to play with consumers pretending to provide quality meats for them to eat and is here today to provide her expert tips for buying grass-fed beef.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

1001: Jamie Koonce Shares The Many Misunderstandings Of Autoimmune Disease

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family? When it comes to purchasing a cow from a local farmer, there are certain things to look out for to know if they are doing things the right way. That’s why we invited on a grass-fed cattle rancher from Braintree, Massachusetts named Joanie Walker from Walker Farm at Whorltleberry Hill. She knows the games that many farmers try to play with consumers pretending to provide quality meats for them to eat and is here today to provide her expert tips for buying grass-fed beef.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

1001: Jamie Koonce Shares The Many Misunderstandings Of Autoimmune Disease

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family? When it comes to purchasing a cow from a local farmer, there are certain things to look out for to know if they are doing things the right way. That’s why we invited on a grass-fed cattle rancher from Braintree, Massachusetts named Joanie Walker from Walker Farm at Whorltleberry Hill. She knows the games that many farmers try to play with consumers pretending to provide quality meats for them to eat and is here today to provide her expert tips for buying grass-fed beef.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

1001: Jamie Koonce Shares The Many Misunderstandings Of Autoimmune Disease

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

1001: Jamie Koonce Shares The Many Misunderstandings Of Autoimmune Disease

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family?

Our poor health and growing waistlines seems to be indelibly connected to something that really isn’t on the radar screen of very many people–micronutrient deficiency. A shocking 90 percent of Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don’t even know it. This is the heart cry of nutritional health and micronutrient specialists Dr. Jayson and Mira Calton who have been sounding the alarm of micronutrient deficiency for several years now. They’re back in 2015 with a brand new plan for people wanting to become micronutrient sufficient encompassed in their book The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease. In fact, they believe so strongly in the power of the message in their book that they are offering $200+ in free gift certificates with the purchase of The Micronutrient Miracle.

Listen in as Jimmy, Jayson, and Mira talk about the development of a ketogenic program to help people with micronutrient deficiency, whether the micronutrient message they’ve been promoting is gaining traction in the health mainstream, the major micronutrient deficiencies people deal with, how ketosis can make you feel so good that you can’t tell you are micronutrient deficient, why micronutrients go well beyond the food you eat, how paying attention to eliminating the toxins you are bringing into your environment matters, why they think low-carb dieters don’t need to worry about eating too much protein as much as they do (the “waterfall theory”), what glutathione is and why it’s important, how readily available good-tasting U.S. made grass-fed whey is, the immense negative effects of stress, how dancing is so healthy for you, the importance of exercising smarter not longer, although it’s a 28-day program the goal is to stay on it forever, and the $200+ in free gift certificates you get when you purchase the book.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.

1001: Jamie Koonce Shares The Many Misunderstandings Of Autoimmune Disease

It seems everyone is talking about autoimmune disease these days with their own interpretation and version of the best diet for treating it. In fact, some of the most popular books in the Paleo community are ones that share information and recipes about this very subject. But is the information being shared accurate when it is seemingly so conflicted depending on who you ask? That’s what an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine specialist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner named Jamie Koonce at Energized.Life (listen to her previous appearance on the podcast in Episode 869) felt the need to answer in order to help bring some much-needed balance to the discussion. Jamie explains how she treats her patients with autoimmune disease in her brand new book Healing with Paleo: A Step By Step Guide to the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol that runs counter to much of the information in the other books you’ve seen out there.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jamie talk about her new Biohacker bar to take with her when she is traveling, the difficulty in finding good food in airports, my life on-air demonstration of the Biohacker bar, why another autoimmune protocol (AIP) Paleo book, how so many people are still doing the lean meats version of Paleo, why the AIP information needs to be more simplified than it has been, who needs to be eating an autoimmune protocol, why the order of adding back in foods and the amount after ending your AIP is critical, what “leaky gut” is and why it’s a bad thing, the manifestations of leaky gut and how it can be fixed, the very little bit of stevia she put in her Biohacker bar, her desire for chocolate-covered crickets (but not everyone is!), how she believes death begins in the colon, how smoking and shift workers impact your gut microbiome, how all the acronyms and words out there confuse people about what to eat, whether butter is okay on AIP, whether ketosis can be a part of AIP, how getting plenty of plant foods while keto is best, her love for more of a cyclical ketogenic diet, and why fasting was omitted from her book. We begin our second 1,000 episodes with a bang today. ENJOY!

The subject of the gut microbiome and the impact that has on your health has a bright light shining on it right now. While this topic is still in its infancy, we are learning so much more about the importance of keeping the flora properly balanced, fed and happy in optimizing your health. This is something a Baltimore, Maryland-based gastroenterologist and nutritionist named Dr. Gerry Mullin, MD from TheFoodMD.com is on the forefront of getting out there into the mainstream as one of the world’s leading gut microbiome authorities. He is an associate professor of medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he also directs Integrative GI Nutrition Services examining all the latest cutting-edge research on microbiota. Dr. Mullin has now assimilated all of this knowledge into a brand book about gut health entitled The Gut Balance Revolution: Boost Your Metabolism, Restore Your Inner Ecology, and Lose the Weight for Good.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mullin discuss how his mother’s IBS struggles initially got him interested in digestive disease, how her natural remedy solution to her IBS piqued his interest in nutrition, how he got specific medical nutrition education from his medical school, the component of nutrition being taught to students at Johns Hopkins, how the younger medical professionals are more interested in preventative medicine and nutrition, why he thinks real change has to come from Washington, DC, how consumers can be more empowered when they pay attention to gut health, why calories are a red herring in the health discussion, the things to do and not to do to improve your microbiome, why having a baby through the birth canal (rather than a C-Section) and breastfeeding are critical to gut health, the negative health impact that comes from the overuse of antibiotics in children, why he focuses so much on antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (acid blockers) in his work, why the very heavy acid blockers are bad news for your gut flora, why store-bought yogurt is far inferior to making your own kefir, the low-carb, high-fiber foods that can be consumed to feed the microbiome, why Phase 1 of his program is a very low-carb, ketogenic plan to heal the body, how diet soda (aspartame specifically) can mess with your gut bacteria leading to obesity and diabetes, the destruction of the gut flora leading to inflammation and insulin resistance that negatively impacts overall health, how the Westernized movement in Asia is destroying their health, how a ketogenic dieter can insure they get adequate fiber to build up the good bacteria, the three phases he includes in his book, and what he thinks about fecal transplants to fix difficult gut microbiome issues.

Food awareness is on the rise as more and more people are reconnecting with real food again. But with all the confusing terms like organic, natural, and grass-fed, how do you know if you are really getting the best possible quality food to feed yourself and your family? When it comes to purchasing a cow from a local farmer, there are certain things to look out for to know if they are doing things the right way. That’s why we invited on a grass-fed cattle rancher from Braintree, Massachusetts named Joanie Walker from Walker Farm at Whorltleberry Hill. She knows the games that many farmers try to play with consumers pretending to provide quality meats for them to eat and is here today to provide her expert tips for buying grass-fed beef.

Listen in as Jimmy and Joanie talk about how she got interested in getting a cow many years ago that led to many cows, why she wanted to feed her customers like she wanted to eat, how grass-fed providers can cut corners, why she doesn’t ship her meat through the mail, the shocking ingredients used to feed cattle under the guise of “grass,” how to look for people who are certified grass-fed, how to look for cattle that has been fed GMO hay and corn, be aware of the human waste fertilizer (a ton of crap!) sold to farmers, why you’ve got to vet your farmer, why the “no growth hormones” doesn’t mean no hormones, how the color of your grass-fed beef can help you determine the quality, why the grass-fed beef burgers at Carl’s Jr. is from Australia and that’s not good, the farmer can help you cook grass-fed beef properly, how different cows have a variety of tastes to them, why calling a cow “angus” merely means it’s 50% black, why you should pay attention to how the farmer treats you to know how they treat their animals, how a bellowing cow is a sign of adrenaline which makes tough meat, how the USDA measures the grade of a cow from the marbling, why she doesn’t get “certified organic” (although she does all the organic protocols), and how people can find a quality cattle rancher in their area.

As more and more people begin to become aware of the food they are eating, they are becoming reconnected with exactly what they are putting in their mouth. For an award-winning television producer named Jared Stone, who won an Emmy in 2013 for his work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he forced himself to come face-to-face with this question by committing to buying a whole cow directly from a local rancher and feeding himself and his family on it. Along the way of this wild experiment, Jared got back in touch with what real food is again and rekindled a deep love and passion for everything he is eating. He chronicled the entire experience in a fascinating new book entitled Year of the Cow: How 420 Pounds of Beef Built a Better Life for One American Family.

Listen in as Jimmy and Jared talk about how watching a television show on food made him realize how disconnected from his food he had become, how he decided on the kind of quality cow to purchase, why he believes we need more information about where our food is from, how people used to eat butter regularly, his experience making his own butter, the deceptive marketing of margarine, what the public is so afraid of in embracing real food, how he breaks free from the food system with a backyard garden, how raising the cattle for grass-fed beef is good for growing other real food, the business sense of the way the agricultural system has gone and how we can impact it, the growth of the farmer’s market movement showing people voting with their dollars, how you end up paying less for food at a farmer’s market compared to a grocery store, what his diet was like before, the high-carb foods served on television and movie sets, how eating the quality meats made him aware how inferior the rest of his food was, how bone broth helped improve the flavor of all his food, how his anthropology background led him to the Paleo diet, the random movement he started engaging in after he started eating better, the health tests he had run prior to this experiment and how they got better after eating real food, his intense focus on each part of the cow to make the most of the animal, how the one-year experiment turned into four years, the story about how he cooked the beef heart as a romantic dinner for his wife on Valentine’s Day (and how it didn’t go over so well), and the psychological toll of consuming a beef tongue.
