The uses of a low-carb, high-fat, ketogenic diet are numerous providing health benefits for a wide variety of chronic diseases. One of the most well-known effects of being in a state of nutritional ketosis is for the treatment of epilepsy. This is something a Bethesda, Maryland-based epileptologist and ketogenic diet practitioner named Dr. Pavel Klein from EpilepsyAndSleep.com is abundantly aware of treating his epileptic patients with this oft-overlooked modality for healing. He also discovered this way of eating is great for treating his Type 2 diabetes patients as well. Dr. Klein started a food-based home delivery program called Anemone Lifestyle to help with compliance to the nutritional plan designed to reverse the negative impact of these and other diseases typically treated with prescription medications.
Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Klein talk about why he got into this field of epileptology (what the heck is that anyway?), how a ketogenic diet helps treat epilepsy, the discovery of this diet as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes, the physiological process of achieving diabetes remission with keto, the Anemone Lifestyle treatment protocol, why he believes in his patients eating frequent meals throughout the day, the potential for ketogenic diet in treating other diseases outside of weight loss, epilepsy, and Type 2 diabetes, and so much more! If you’re into ketosis and want to learn from one of the cutting-edge practitioners using this with patients, then this is the interview for you!
Most people just inherently believe that getting eight of sleep a night is what you need to be rested and healthy. But where did that come from? And, more importantly, is it true? These are just some of the questions that have always intrigued a Sunnyvale, California-based holistically-minded family and sleep medicine dentist named Dr. Mark Burhenne from AskTheDentist.com. Dr. B (as he is so affectionally referred to) has so closely examined and researched the surprising connection between your dental health and sleep that he wrote an entire book about the topic called The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox: How We Are Sleeping Our Way to Fatigue, Disease and Unhappiness. This book is designed to offer up a simple, 3-step program for attaining great sleep in ways that you have probably never thought about before so you can attain the happy and refreshed feeling you should get from a good night’s sleep.
Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. B discuss why a dentist is talking about sleep, the interesting connection between your dental health and a restful night’s sleep, how Dr. Weston A. Price is viewed amongst his dental colleagues, why the 8-hour sleep window is probably not ideal for all, how he can tell within a minute or two of talking with someone if there is a problem with their oral health, the indelible connection between sleep and carb cravings, the specific signs of getting poor sleep that show up in your mouth, and so much more. Is your sleep off? Did you ever stop to think it might have something to do with your teeth? If not, then don’t miss this interview with Dr. B!
While most of us have done a great job dialing in our diet and even our fitness levels to exactly what works for us, there’s a major blind spot in a good number of health journeys that can unravel and sabotage even the best of nutritional health plans. That topic is sleep and combined with stress these are a nasty one-two punch death knell to any and every healthy lifestyle. This is something a St. Louis, Missouri-based health podcaster from The Model Health Show and corporate wellness coach named Shawn Stevenson (listen to Jimmy’s previous interview with Shawn in Episode 915) understands abundantly well. He recognized how critically important this issue of sleep is in the success or failure of his clients by noticing consistent patterns that lead to compromised sleep. Now he’s put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled Sleep Smarter: 21 Essential Strategies to Sleep Your Way to A Better Body, Better Health, and Bigger Success. Listen in as Jimmy and Shawn dive deeply into what it takes to get some great ZZZ’s at night for better health.
